Old Ghost Wants to Contact Me?

Posted on March 9, 2011

First off, I want to say that I’m not a professional writer, and I am only sixteen. I haven’t had any experience of this particular ghost or demon since I was 9. I also cant find anymore information from my family about this ghost as they have always refuse to talk about it, until recently, but a lot is still unclear. I would also like to add these event are not in chronological order, but are only ordered how they link to each other.

Firstly I want to give some background information on where I lived, and the house. I live in Chepstow, Wales. there are a lot of old buildings and have heard of several hauntings but have never� thought to look into them. My house was build in 1994, just a few months before I was born. It was separate from the other builds. As my dad bought the land and built the house with other family builders/plumbers or electricians. So there had been no previous houses to my knowledge.

My earliest memory is seeing this ghostly figure, I was around 2/3, just near the time where I could walk and talk at a reasonable standard. Our toilet door was next to the bottom of our stairs, I remember crying and running out of the toilet screaming about a tall elderly woman at the top of our stairs. But apparently ever since I could crawl I used to sit and stare at the top of my stairs, and my mum always got spooked when I spoke about the woman. (although I didn’t find out about this baby think until I asked about it tonight).

She was about as ‘tall as my mum’ which is 5’11, and had permed hair, the woman was in a long pink dirty dressing gown. She had saggy skin around her face. I can only describe her as rough.

Seeing her upstairs always scared me about being upstairs alone and I used to sing to myself to block out any sounds.

I continued to see this woman out of the corner of my eye until I was 9 years old; without fail she would be stood there. This is why I can roughly explain her so well. However I didn’t see her face until I was eight or nine, my mum is reluctant that this event never happened, but I am adamant that it did.

Basically, I had a bunk-bed, although there was no bottom bunk it was like a study/play area. I had always, as I can only explain ‘sway’ or ‘rock’ in my sleep and mumble to myself, I was almost sub-conscious, which is that line between awake and asleep. My arm was hanging out the ladder gap when I was ‘swaying’ my arm was hardly gripped and I pulled my arm back in but there was no force trying to stop me. I then looked out from my covers and saw the woman walk away and turn into the spare bedroom next to my room. This event baffled me as I had never seen the ghost in my room before, (this happened when I was nine, 2004) Later that year we moved out of the house. Another one off experience I remember was on Christmas day where I ‘fell’ down the stairs, I felt someone breathe down my neck and whisper something, I cannot recall what it was but it frightened me enough to make me fall.

As well as seeing the ghost at the top of my stairs and a one off in my room; I used to regularly see the woman cross past my room into the spare bedroom. This is where both my brother and mum saw the ghost, they both saw it on more than one occasion.

The final location I had seen this ghost was in my next door neighbors (who we had bought the land off) garden, but again this was only ever out of the corner of my eye. My dad claims never to of seen the woman but I’m certain he has as he always avoids it when I bring it up into conversation.

Anyhow, I hadn’t thought� about this ghost since my parents divorced. But prior to that I used to feel uncomfortable for the first year in our new home, as I wondered if the ghost had followed us. However when walking back from the town,about a week ago, I walked a mate home, who lived by my old house, I saw it and the hairs instantly stood up on my neck and I felt uncomfortable. Since then I have had an old reoccurring dream, I’ve had twice in this week gap.

The dream is short and simple. We’re in a cinema sitting at the back and I am young maybe four or five, holding a large bag of popcorn. The woman that ‘haunts’ my house grabs my head, and covers my eyes, and whispers something as she pulls my head back and I go crashing into the floor, she begins to laugh, as there is no back on the seat. My head is cracked and I wake up sweating at this point. Always sweating. I used to have this regularly ad-least once a week when I lived in the house.

I have no idea what the dream means, so if anyone has any idea leave a comment.

However I believe that the ghost wants to contact me, and I’ve recently been interested in Ouija boards and was thinking of doing one to see if the ghost talks to me?

I have no experience in this, and id like to know what people think of this…

Thank you

    Absolutly NO Ouija boards!! That invites More Evil spirits or causes spirits with negitave energy to pop up more! And with a dream like that! Heck no! Avoid them at all costs the boards the cards stay away from them it’s only worse when you involve thoes! i advise having the land bless’d but i also think (I think these are to what it was) bathing in rose pedals (Im not sure what oils but look them up if you need to) but they were a relaxation oil but try any oil like oliv oil or cooking oils and it will sooth you before bed i had to do this times before and so had my mother the dreams slowly went away but the spirit didnt untill we ask’d it to when it didnt we had the land bless’d to force it out.

  2. Buds420 says:

    Do NOT use a ouija board!! All the advise I can give you and please listen. You will regret it if you use it.

  3. Bela says:

    I would suggest you do an EVP (electronic voice phenomena) instead of using a Ouija board to be on the safe side… You never know what kind of spirits can contact you through the board.

  4. Jaybee says:

    Based on the number of stories about ouija boards here, I wouldn’t mess with them. Read a few stories and then decide on your own if you think it’s worth it – or if you would simply be opening a door to even more trouble.

  5. Pete says:

    Forget the Ouija board Lewis, they are dangerous things to mess with, you could
    open a door to just about anything, there will be other more experienced members
    here who will give you good advice but PLEASE no Ouija boards.

  6. JohnnyIreland says:

    Your writing is fine!

    Do NOT mess with the O Board as this will only attract more spirits. It seems she was probably attached to land your folks bought and now you. Do not try and contact her as she is now coming into your dreams and seems to be getting more sinister. Next time you see her demand her to leave you alone in Jesus name.

  7. Rosie says:


    first of all, I’d like to say please DO NOT PLAY WITH THE BOARD, I am sure you do not like to deal with any ghost and you will not be happy to deal with a lot of evil ghosts or demons in the future. If you play with the board, you never know what kind of evil spirits can come to you. If you read a lot real stories about people playing with the ouija board, you will find out the board most likely brought them nothing but troubles.

    I personally think the woman ghost in your old house was a ” resident ” to that place. That is why you saw her was still there when you sent your mate home.Your house was built as a brand new one but maybe someone used to live there before. I don’t think she is a very friendly ghost since you got pushed downstairs. If you don’t see her any more , then she must be in your old house and she didn’t follow you to your new home. Try not to think about it too much. Life moves on.

  8. Anna Barlowe says:

    This ghost sounds like she belongs to the house you lived in – maybe a former occupant who died there. If you haven’t seen her since you moved, she is probably not attached to you, and I would not make an attempt to contact her, especially if you are having frightening dreams about her and are not sure she is friendly.

    I would definitely not mess around with Ouija boards – they are too unpredictable. Using one is like leaving the front door to your house open – you don’t know who may decide to come through it, and they may not have the best intentions. You would be better off visiting a reputable medium, but even that I would not encourage unless you have a good reason. If you are not being actively haunted now, better to let it go and get on with your life, I think.

  9. K. Smith says:

    Exactly what do you think ghosts are? The bible teaches that the dead knows nothing and have No contact with the living. This means dead people CANNOT contact or communicate with the living.

    PSALMS 146:4 – His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; IN THAT VERY DAY HIS THOUGHTS PERISH.

    PSALMS 88:5 � Free among the dead, LIKE THE SLAIN THAT LIE IN THE GRAVE, whom thou rememberest no more; and they are cut off from thy hands.

    PSALMS 6:5 � FOR IN DEATH THERE IS NO REMEMBRANCE OF THEE: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

    JOB 7:9-10 �As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore.

    ECCLESIASTES 9:5-6 � For the living know that they shall die: But THE DEAD KNOW NOT ANYTHING, neither have they any more a reward, for the memory of them is forgotten. Also there love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion forever in any thing that is done under the sun.

    ECCLESIASTES 9:10 – Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for THERE IS NO WORK, NOR DEVICE, NOR KNOWLEDGE, NOR WISDOM, IN THE GRAVE, WHIETHER THOU GOEST.

    Therefore, ghosts are nothing more than horrific demonic creatures masquerading as loved ones and family members to deceive people. If you open a doorway by using the Ouija Board, you will in fact be opening a gateway to hell. Demonic spirits will then have the legal right to harass, torment, afflict and trouble you. Believe me they are deadly.

    From your story, this so called ghost is already making you miserable and uncomfortable, and you want to contact it. Don�t.

    • Diana says:

      I disagree. There are plenty of cases where ghosts have been anything BUT evil. Rationalizing it by saying it’s in the bible doesn’t really mean anything. Don’t believe everything you read. While I do believe in God, the bible was written by man, and therefore cannot be the absolute pure word of God.

      • Xemorpheus says:

        I kinda agree with Diana here, I’ve always believed that when you die and have an unfinished task in this world Peter (the one who guards the gate to heaven) would send you back whether back alive or as a ghost.

        Yet I also agree with you on this smith, though the bible was written by man it came from Jesus’s teachings. They were there when Jesus was preaching till the moment he was raised from the dead so yeah I still believe in the bible somehow 0_o…….

  10. DownOnMe says:

    I think that you should try to use that Ouija board if you want to contact that ghost =). Anna, your advice wouldn’t help him alot. Nothing bad can happen if you use Ouija board. I used it many times, and I’m a guy. Girls are afraid of many things(like:spiders,rats and little bugs).

    • Nameless says:

      if i were you i wouldn’t mess with ouija boards.these boards can be the gateway or portal of demons that can haunt you if i were you i wouldn’t i prefer EVP is much safer that ouija boards

  11. Anna Barlowe says:

    Well, Down, despite your enviable masculinity, it appears that your opinion is in the minority here. And for the record, I am afraid of none of the above, and have in fact owned most of them as pets. Including snakes and rats. Also I live with some perfectly lovely ghosts, whom I am also not afraid of, and who apparently are not familiar enough with scripture to know they’re supposed to stay dead. I’ll mention it to them if it comes up.

    As for Ouija boards, I maintain with most of the respondents above that they are not a good idea. If you wouldn’t call random people on the phone and give them your address, don’t do it wih ghosts either, especially ones that you already know don’t care for you. It’s just not sensible.

  12. Mary-Kate says:

    Don’t use an Ouija board! They usually bring in evil spirits, ones that may not already be there, so theres no gauruntee you’re going to contact the particular spirit anyways. (not to mention the possible dangerous/evil spirits you could ‘invite’ in.) Since you mentioned you no longer live in that home, and that your family built it on land you bought from your neighbor, the best thing to do is ask your old neighbor about any people who dies in there house. The spirit could possibly travel between the houses (like you said you saw it in the neighbors garden.) Where I live, there are two haunted graveyards, in neighboring towns, and it is reported that some spirits travel between both. I Suggest you get all the infromantion you can out of your old neighbors, and hire a medium, to attempt and contact the spirit. good luck :)

  13. dakota says:

    before u use the board read all the othe comments and read stories of unfortunate people who used them. i dthink you should keep a bible close to your bed and if this entity does come into your room and you feel threatened take the bible and start reading verses or take it and camand it to leave such as saying i camand you in the name of jesus christ to leave and never return.

    • Jaybee says:

      Ha dakota, at my Uncle’s haunted house, my cousin kept her bible next to her bed on the nightstand. Read from it every night. One morning she woke up, bible was gone – they never found it again. And no, no one came in and got it, she would go to bed and lock the door to her bedroom. No one could come in – and it was only her and my uncle. Trust me, my uncle is too old and infirm to sneak out of his room at night, figure out how to unlock the door, sneak in and take the bible – considering he has one of his own by his bed. Sometimes nothing is sacred.

  14. trolldoll says:

    first of all, look up the history of the land. i bet this woman was a matriarch of the home that sat there. evps would be a great idea. as for the board, that’s up to you. the woman has probably been in the area quite awhile. your dreams are just that, unless she is showing something that happened in her time. england and wales are highly haunted. do some research on the grounds. this could get interesting and i for one am really interested!! thanks lewis!

  15. Carri says:

    It sounds like the ghost is communication with you through your dreams.This ghost wants to harm you. the board will cause demons to come at you. would not do it.

  16. Clyde says:

    Inexperience+ouija board= bad idea.
    I’m not saying to stay away from it,but you might make this worse so for now,don’t use it.
    You should definitely do an EVP.

  17. LittleKitKat says:

    Lewis don’t try and Ouija Board it can cause more harm than good.
    The ghost may just ben connected to the house and your reencounter of that house has brought up her in your dreams. As your house was built on land you don’t know if had been previously lived on and your families secrecy i think talking to your parents and sibling no matter how much they don’t want to will help you find a few clues to who this woman is.

    That’s oddly funny as i have many MALE friends who are terrified of spiders and rats don’t scare me infact i find them quite sweet. Do not rely on sterotypes for your world view will never grow.

    Ouija boards are dangerous and many friend of both genders will agree, just because something bad has not happened to you has nothing to do with your gender.

  18. Michelle says:

    Never use oulja boards! They invite ghosts and worse things….you never know what you will pick up..Sometimes ghosts act like someone you miss or used to be close to…then when you contact them they come through and won’t leave you alone….oulja boards are also considered as witchcraft….I would cleanse your house if I were you…

  19. Lindsay Walker says:

    DO NOT MESS WITH OUIJA BOARD!!!!!!!!! it’s the devil! I’m telling ya u mess with it your gonna wish u hadn’t, u could open a door to something bad wether u want to or not!

  20. Nessie says:

    DON’T use an Ouija Board! Those thing do nothing to help, they open the door to any kind of demon or spirit, some probably a lot worse than what you’re dealing with.
    I have to say this: If anyone has any doubts about the O Board, just listen to my sister’s story. It’s…I don’t know how to explain it. It’s 3 yrs later and her and her friend still can’t be near one, lets put it at that. Basically, they tried to mess around with it (thinking it was just a game) and ended up with a full-length mirror that refuses to be thrown away and a screaming demon/spirit/whatever in her closet.
    Call a psychic or parnormal investigators or something, just DON’T GO TO THE OUIJA BOARD

  21. emigrate2007 says:

    every comment here tells you to not use the oija board so i reccomend using it just to see what happens lol

    • Jaybee says:

      Yeah, that definitely makes sense. If everyone tells you not to go flying off the edge of the cliff, go do it. If everyone is telling you NOT to do it, that’s reason enough to throw yourself over the edge. Or not……..

    • Diana says:

      Messing around with someone’s life isn’t a laughing matter. Ouija boards can cause a lot of harm and making light of them really only shows your lack of spiritual knowledge. Please refrain from going around making these suggestions to people who could very well take them literally and not as the “joke” you intended them to be.

      Please and Thank you.
