I never had a physical manifestation of a ghost, at least not while fully awake. More on that later.
The thing that made me a believer in the paranormal is that I was very strong psychic in my youth. I knew things that sometimes even adults didn't
know. It was like I was always tuned in to channel the collective consiousness. When I was maybe 6 I knew that me and my grandfather should go to see
my favorite uncle which we had planned to do at that day anyway, but around noon I felt certain we needed to go immediately. He committed suicide at
about 12:15 that day, if we'd left at noon we'd have still not been there in time to stop him, but it may have been in time to still save him. I also
found out he committed suicide by ouija board (my mom and grandoarents told me all my life before the ouija incident that he died of Cancer). So yes,
Ouja boards are NOT just a game and they CAN be very useful tools.
When I was a teenager I constantly had dreams of the next day ahead that came to pass to the "T". Always mundane daily stuff, usually I would see what
kind of conversation would come up or what lesson we would learn stuff like that. HAAHAA This had a lot to do with me never studying or doing homework
but always passing quizzes and tests.
So ghost experienced that I "may" have seen a physical apparition was in our rental home in Philadelphia (2004). I slept on the couch (there was a lot
of activity in the upstairs of that house that prompted me to stay on the living room couch most nights). Anyway My stepdaughter stayed with me and
her father along with our three kids. The night I fell asleep downstairs on the living room couch my stepdaughter was still downstairs in the dining
room (right next to the living room) To give you a visual you'd walk into the door and you were in the living room straight ahead (back wall of
living room) was my couch, next to the couch was the stairs but the bottom 3 stairs faced the same way the couch faced and then the rest were straight
ahead looking from the door. then to the lright (ugh still getting left and right mixed up)AAAA of the stairs was an archway leading to the dining
room beyond that was another archway leading to the kitchen and back door to the left of the sink in the kichen, on the back wall of the kitchen was a
doorless opening to the basement stairs. Maybe I'll just show you a pic this will be better so you can get an idea of the layout.
So now you got the idea (they have it pretty much the same way we had it but we had no coffee table) So anyway I was asleep on the couch and woke one
morning to see what I thought was my step daughter asleep on the floor covered with a blanket like just her hair sticking out in a "Sloppy bun" style.
How she often wore it. The same color as her hair. Still groggy very much I carefully stepped "over" her while she slept, Went to the kitchen and
turned on the coffee to get it ready. (I set it up at night to start it in the am). Then I walk back into the living room and no blanket and no
I was much more awake also at this point and run upstairs yelling for my stepdaughter which woke her up... I asked "Weren't you
just sleeping on the floor in the living room?" She said no I slept in the girls' room with them all night I been here, you could tell she was still
groggy from me waking her up and she's not one to play tricks and my girls never had red hair so, it was something else, luckily it was gone when I
was more coherent or else the whole neighborhood would have been awaked to a screaming banshee!
Also in the house when my kids were showering and me and my stepdaughter were down stairs, we had glass doors on the shower, my son walked in to the
bathroom to wait to get his shower after the girls, who showered together (they were 10 & 6) My Stepdaughter was 16 maybe or 15. My son was 11 Anyway
he walked in and the entire shower glass doors came off with the track as the girls were getting out, only my son got a scratch even though they
shattered all over the dang bathroom! So I ran up freaking out screaming cause I thought one of them caused the damage, after all we were renting.
Till this day they say there's no good reason the whole entire (even frame) of those doors should have come down! It's twofold because I beleive
something tried to harm them but also something was protecting them since they all 3 were stnding in direct line of the fall of those shower doors.
There's many things that happened to me at that home. I would never want to live in a place like that again though I loved it, I also loathed it. It's
a beautiful home, with some very sinister spirits attached to it.
So that's my little "stories" all of which are true swear to you, I am not joking!
