My family and I are no strangers to the ocassional spooking...
Same as ours. Several generations of our family have reported on the paranormal. The eldest that I can remember coming from the early teens. (1919 I
believe.) My families history with the paranormal is what had gotten me into studying it.
I continued my patrol and came around a corner when litteraly, the hairs on my neck stood on end. I felt this heavy weight like someone was right
there stairing at me.
I've experienced this countless of times myself. It's like an electric shock that courses through your body and up to your neck area as you can
sense your "fight or flight" senses start to tingle. (Might not kick in, but you feel that something isn't quite "right".)
The noises you speak of are very interesting and I'd urge you to try an EVP with a question or two. (Of course, if you feel this is something
threatening that might not be the best course of action as certain things can thrive on the attention/energy.)
It'd be nice to know where you work with an address for research purposes. Perhaps you can do it if you're not willing to share those details.
(Something I don't recommend doing on an open forum.) But when you say you've worked for fifteen years doing your line of business, has those
fifteen years been at the same location or ?.
Has any major events (earth quakes, even small ones) happened in your area recently? If the building is situated on deposits of quartz, the earth
quakes could have fractured the quartz and "activated" it. Some (myself included) believe that quartz can act like a spiritual battery trapping
energy inside. When released, activity can pick up in an already active area. This is another reason it'd be great to know the location.
Has the business you work for done any remodeling or upgrades as of late? Have they undergone any form of changes? That too could possibly excite
spirits in one way or another.
The leg grabbing you speak of is extremely worrying. Typically "good ghosts" don't do things like that, unless they're desperate after attention
for some reason. But seeing that you and the family are typically open I don't see a reason for them to do that as you'd probably already feel
I'd talk to your coworker next time you relieve him. Ask him if he's experienced things that seemed to follow him home after work. It might view
you and your coworker as a threat for some reason and be trying to scare you from coming back. Or there might be more nefarious reasons.
Either way, interesting story and thanks for sharing. Find out what you can about the area you work in, take a look at local reports for anything out
of the ordinary like major storms, earth quakes (even minor ones can do the job) or even the history the ground is sitting on. You might be nearing
an "anniversary" that is making the activity spike.
