I'm not a newbie when it comes to the paranormal. My family has been "plagued" by the unexplained for at least five generations back. When we
talk about ghosts, spirits, the unexplained it's like we're talking about the weather. It's just that normal for us.
I'd like to write about some of our experiences, but it's typed up on my Psion netBook so I'll have to add it to the thread in a couple of days
time after some editing. It's a very long list of stories, too much for me to write here.
Anyways, I'm an avid paranormal investigator. Or at least I was. Over the past few years, I've pretty much stopped because of all the things going
on in our daily lives. I know limit myself to episodes of Ghost Adventures and the like. For a while, it was quiet. But over the past week, that
trend has changed.
It all seems to have started with some horrible nightmares. I've never had any as bad as this before, although my uncle and younger sister have been
plagued by night terrors. A few nights ago, I had a nightmare that still resonates with me, a nightmare I look back on and think, "Wow". In my
dream, I was in a dark area. I couldn't see any walls or anything else around me. Just the immediate ground beneath me. There was a light above
me. I'm standing there, wondering where I am and what's going on. When all of a sudden a person walks up to me. I couldn't make out who it was,
and I got the feeling that this was a person who had both sexes.
That's when it started yelling, I mean screaming at the top of it's lungs at me saying, "Your god has forsaken you!" and, "You will worship me
now!" and a lot of similar things. I instantly got the feeling that it was evil, maybe even the devil. I'm not an overly religious man and
haven't been to church in years, but this dream has made me rethink it.
Well, it continues verbally abusing me. I end up on the floor in a fetal position as it verbally assaults me. I'm so freaked out, that I start to
pray (something again I haven't done in a long time), it's the Lords prayer which I repeat over and over again with my eyes closed. Eventually, I
wake up shaken.
Then two or three nights ago, I have another strange dream. Not as bad as the first one, but enough to leave me a bit nervous when I finally wake up.
In this dream, I'm in the United States (I'm currently in Europe) in a grocery store. (Piggly Wiggly?) I'm there with my grandmother and a couple
of other people. I'm not sure who, but I get the feeling they're family. We go shopping, it feels good to be back in the U.S. and I pick up a box
of Fruit Loops. That's when a bag falls out from behind it. The bag has something in it, don't know what. I open it up and out comes flying
colors which nearly blind me. I look over at my grandmother when the lights in the supermarket go off.
"Oh great" I thought. A few seconds fumbling about, the lights finally come on. At the other end of the isle, there's a freezer disk. I see an
employee running along side it. What follows after him made me very anxious. A very tall "thing" with abnormally long arms with what appeared to
be elongated claws protruded from them. It was running after the employee.
My grandmother and I are shaken up at this point, we then run to the book/greeting card section where other people have huddled together. For some
reason, leaving the store didn't occur to us. We feel (or know?) the thing is coming towards us. This is the point when I start saying the Lords
prayer. I forget the couple of ending sentences when a lady beside me picks up where I left off.
Next thing I know, everything is OK again.
But what's strange, is that after these two dreams things have started to act up at home. Our pets have been acting strange, our cat who's usually
awake and playful has become lethargic. Our dog whimpered today for no reason and relieved itself on the ground. Something she's not done since she
was a puppy. (She's six now.) Come Monday, we'll be taking both pets to the vet's to get them examined for potential problems.
Then a day ago, my younger brother (13) claims to have seen someone looking at him through the living room window. As we live in a second story
apartment, this is impossible unless someone climbed up to our balcony. Then today, he saw a sturdy candle holder on our living room table rock back
and fourth. He was sitting by the PC which is roughly eight feet away. He heard it first and then turned around.
He usually doesn't care much for ghost stories or anything paranormal related. But this got him shaken up.
Tonight, I have a strange feeling that something isn't right. In fact I'm having a hard time sleeping. It's now 5:30am here.
These aren't the only things that's happened here, but they are the most recent. I'd love to get some thoughts and opinions from the ATS
paranormal community on the matter. I have my own theories and will post them in the morning. Thanks for taking a look and goodnight.
