A Paranormal Experience You Have Had
I was really looking forward to writing this post. This is one from the dusty bookshelf, as it happened quite a long time ago.
I was young, maybe 11 or 12 years old? I went to bed, and when I was younger I always woke up at spooky o’clock – which is called ‘witching hour’. It would start from 12AM through to 5AM-ish. I would always find myself waking up at various times during this time, and it continued very much so until I was 18 years old. I would just have this feeling that I wasn’t alone. Maybe I was just a superstitious youngen!
When I was 11/12 years old (somewhere around there), I woke up during this time with the urge that someone had woken me up. It felt like someone had called my name. I woke up and looked at the foot of my bed, and there was a woman standing there.
It wasn’t stereotypical ‘ghost’ like. You know, the white sheet with holes cut out around the eyes. It wasn’t like that at all. The best way I can describe it, is that it was like just a regular woman, nothing abnormal about her. She wasn’t floating, she wasn’t trying to scare me, she was just standing there looking at me. There wasn’t any colour to her or to her clothes, she was dressed very and I repeat very old fashioned. I can’t describe how I saw her, she wasn’t ghost white or anything stereotypical, she just.. was?
As any child would do, I panicked. I threw my blanket over my head and I was shaking. I was absolutely petrified. I was so frozen that I couldn’t remove the blanket from my head.
When I was younger, I used to pray every night. I didn’t and don’t believe in ‘God’ so to speak, but I would pray to whoever was listening. I would always pray that my family would be happy, healthy and safe even from a young age. In that moment, I remember asking whoever was out there to please make them go away. Every night after that night for years, I found myself asking for the same thing. I would ask for no one to visit me. I wasn’t trying to be rude or disrespectful, I just couldn’t handle the situation and I still don’t think I would be able to.
The following morning after that incident, I asked my mum who it was. My mum is incredibly spiritual and she always ensured the house was protected up the wazoo from anything dangerous, so naturally she was curious and asked me to describe who I saw. When I described it, my mum said that it was her grandmother. I have never met the woman, and I had never seen photos or anything like that of her by this point so it was completely new to me. When mum showed me pictures of her, I was gobsmacked because that was exactly who visited me during the early hours of the morning.
As much as I knew there wasn’t any harm, I was just absolutely petrified of it happening again. I am incredibly spiritual, but there is no way that I would be able to handle having visitors during the early hours of the morning or anything/anyone trying to communicate with me from the other side. I don’t think mentally I would be able to handle it, it is far too intimidating for me. I admire those that do.
So that was the first and only time that I have ever seen someone from the other side. It was absolutely terrifying!
