My Experiences With the Supernatural

Posted on June 28, 2011

Hi, my name is Rachel, and these are just a few experiences Iíve had and what I still do experience now. I know some people wonít agree with or believe my experiences, but why would I lie about this? I really wish I had never had these experiences.

My first two experiences with ghosts started 5 years ago when I was 11 years old and, living at my old house. I went to bed at around 9pm that night, and naturally my parents and sister (who is 3 years older than me) were still wide awake. Well, I was drifting off to sleep when I felt this odd sensation that I should open my eyes. When I opened them, I looked across the room to my desk and saw this black thing rising upon my desk, which looked kind of like a shapeless black cloth, so I immediately ran to my door, turned the light on and swung around to look. There on my desk was this small black cloak which I had never seen before, so naturally I took it out to my mother and told her what happened. Of course she never believed me, but thatís natural, although she didnít know what it was from either. This of course, was the first in many strange occurrences in my life.

The second event that happened in my life, actually turned out to be a few nights after the first one. I was, yet again asleep in my bed when I woke up. I turned around and looked outside through the curtain (which was one of those curtains where you could kind of see through) and saw this tall figure which was a man. He was wearing a black cloak and a really weird black top hat. I thought it was very strange to see this man, although at the time he didnít seem to be threatening, so I let it slide and just went back to sleep. To this day, I still wonder about these events.

See now, Iíve always believed in ghosts, and I always will, unfortunately. To this day, I still have the bed from my old house. I feel very attached to this bed, but I donít know why Ė itís very weird. Every two or three nights, my bed shakes by itself, and it always has done this. When I say shake, I mean SHAKE. Sometimes it goes back and forth, and sometimes one end goes up slightly then the other end and it repeats. Can anyone tell me why it does this, because I know itís something paranormal, Iím just not sure what?

Throughout the 5 past years I have seen a few ghosts, and heard them too. A few months ago (about 3 or so) I encountered this Ďghostlyí car. It was very strange, not very frightening though. I was taking my dog for a walk, per usual when I was walking past this car and it turned on. I couldnít see inside (as it was tinted) so Iím not sure if there was a something inside it or not. Anyway, when I went across the road, it did a U-turn to go onto my side of the road. I kept walking, ignoring it when my dog started growling at it, so I told her to stop. Every few metres, this car would stop in front of me then start driving when I walked past. After it did this 4 times, I started freaking out that someone was trying to stalk me. Mind you, this was on a long street, and there were no side roads except for the ones in front of me. I turned around to look at the car (my dog was still growling at it) and I saw it still following me, so I turned back and kept walking down the street. I saw lights flash on, and heard it driving, so I turned back and it was gone. Vanished, disappeared.

Still today, I wonder, why me? I know that I do attract ghosts. Unfortunately. In fact, I also have a few Ďpowersí. Nothing extreme, just unknown knowledge, as in something in me just knows certain facts. To prove this theory, thereís this experience. My dad sold his unit at the end of last year (as we have moved elsewhere). He only told my stepmother how much he sold it for, and no one else. I was talking to him 3 weeks ago about it, and I brought up the price of it and he asked me how I know. I have no idea; there was just this thought in my head that told me so. Another thing I have is this, sort of alter-ego voice thing in my mind. It tells me what to do and when.

Last week I was under the house when I heard this really weird sucking noise, as though something was eating. No one else was under there and the dog was upstairs. This voice inside my head said run, just get out of here, and donít look back. I did this when the second I ran out of the door my dog went under and started barking ferociously at nothing. My dog is the happiest dog you would ever see, and when around people she doesnít trust, sheís very scared. So much for a helpful watchdog. Another Ďpowerí I have is that I can tell a few things of what can happen in the future. Not all the time, but usually only occurs when something bad is going to happen, though itís not always the case. I predicted my best friendís grandfatherís death. That day, i was at school when Iíd just gotten into class for last period. My friend had been away that day, and at 2:20pm, I had this thought. The thought was Ďher grandfatherís deadí. My friend came onto MSN that night and I asked her what happened. She said, my grandfather died, when I asked what time, she had replied with Ď2:15pmí.

I also predicted my own car crash. This happened 2 Fridays ago (actually happened to be Friday the 13th). My mum had to come home to pick me up and drop me off somewhere (the place is irrelevant). She was late that day and I had a thought of Ďwouldnít it be strange if we were in a car crash tonight?í A few moments later my mum came home and we left 10 minutes later. Weíd gone one minute away from home when this car came into our lane with no indication, so mum had to brake, she hit the cars backdoor and then we slammed into a fence. Minor injuries thankfully, although my sister (who was to attend this art museum opening thing with my mum) broke her nose.

Another Ďpowerí I have is a strong sense of fight-or-flight. Whenever I need to be cautious, if something bad is about to happen or if I sense something evil or spooky around, I hear my heart beat hard in my head. I know this sounds very weird, but I always listen to it, and if I hear it, I know somethingís around. One last thing is that Iím very good with first impressions and I can tell what someone really feels inside, even when they donít show it on the outside, plus I kind of believe I have a slight compulsion. I can persuade people to be on my side if I desire, and Iím extremely good at getting out of trouble. I donít use it all the time, but sometimes itís handy to get out of trouble with schoolwork. Either it is compulsion, or Iím extremely good at weaving and fabricating reality with lies and stimulating peopleís ideas of their perception.

Lastly, I would like to say thanks for reading about some of my experiences. I have had more, although if I was to write them all, Iíd be going on for a long time. Iíd also like to tell you, I have a ghost at my dads house, and I have had two ghost cats in the past (both my passed away cats, who I love so much) and I still have them both, but I donít feel them that often. One of my cats passed away 2 years ago, and the other passed away at the beginning of this month (so Iím still extremely sad about that). At night time, sometimes, I hear the little pitter patter of paws on the floor, and just as I did a few minutes ago, I feel a body jump on the bed and sit on top of me just as Harmony (the recently deceased) used to do every night.

We did go home the next day and everyone was looking for him and my husband found him, he had passed away in his sleep. I,ve had other things happen to
