One Weird Day

Posted on June 21, 2010

My experience with the paranormal dates back as far as I can remember. When I was younger, I would simply tell people that they’re house was haunted and sure enough they would begin to tell their stories. I could feel whatever it was, good or bad I knew it was there if it was. I was never afraid of these vibes, except in one situation.

During the summers I would baby-sit my uncle (yes he is younger than me) at my grandmother’s house. I always got the feeling that something was there, but I never could figure out how that could be because this wasn’t an “old” house, in fact my grandmother has recently gotten it built. I never thought that it could have been the land until I got older.

Anyways, one day I went over to my grandmother’s house as usual. It was always only me and him there. I would fix him breakfast, and just look out for him (me in the den and him in his room down the hall). On this particular day, I fixed his breakfast and for some reason I decided to hide from him as a prank, never mind the fact that I had been hearing him talking to someone (which I thought was him just arguing with the TV while playing the game). After he realized that I wasn’t in the den as usual (I was hiding in the laundry room), he burst into tears so I came out of hiding and asked what was wrong. He said, “You left me by myself with that black thing.” I calmed him down, and chalked the comment up to imagination even despite of the vibes, and the talking.

He returned to his room, and I went back into the den where I fell asleep. Things got worst from there. I remember waking up, and my uncle was sitting right next to me at the computer desk. I talked to him but he never budged as if he could hear me. That’s when I tried moving, but I couldn’t. The only thing I had control over was moving my eyes, which I aimed towards the door (looking into the hall). There was something running up and down the hall with extreme speed, so quick that I could only make out that it was a white figure. When it slowed down and got close to the door, I got scared so I allowed myself to drift back into sleep.

When I woke up the second time, I was still paralyzed and the thing was still running up and down the door. I yelled for my uncle, who still didn’t move. Once again, I fell asleep when the thing got to the door. The next time I woke up, everything was normal. I asked my uncle how long I had been sleeping and he said I wasn’t. According to him, I had been laying there staring into space for at least 2 hours. No talking, no yelling, only blinking every now and then (maybe what I thought of as sleep). He didn’t see the thing in the hallway, but I know it was there. To this day, I don’t like being alone in my grandmother’s house. Too weird.

Sorry for the length. Any similar experiences?

    Lol, my nieces and nephews are all older than me too. Anyway, I’ve seen something like that too. Only it wasn’t running up and down the hall. It was slowly floating.

      I don’t feel so bad now. Did you get a good look at the thing?

      Dear Kay,

      when I was younger (can’t specify age, don’t remember), i had same exp as urs,. I an talking abt state of sleep in which u are awake & can’t move a muscle.
      I had experience it more than twice, it happened when I was asleep(mostly in afternoon) n I feel lik I am awake & if i wan’t to move my hand/leg but wasn’t able to do so, all those times I remember my neck in odd position, that state continues for a few minutes & go back to sleep. all these yrs I used to think it as a dream, but now after readin same exp of urs, even I am puzzled…(all those times I used to b alone at my house as my mother is a working woman.)

  2. Kind Skeptic says:

    The child having reported the “black thing” holds a great deal of credibility in that children seldom lie about these things. So it’s quite possible that there are forces on the land, or even some that might have attached themselves to individuals living in the house, coming from elsewhere. I would start out w/ cleansing my space w/ burning sage, and declaring it under your domain — not the “visitors”. It might just be as simple as that to get control back of your environment. Be sure to voice a protective affirmation (or prayer of protection if you are more comfortable w/ a more orthodox approach) before you begin the cleansing as you do you do not want the entity(s) to attempt to attach themselves to you. W/ re: to your paralysis, I would look into Sleep Paralysis as it sounds very much like this is what you experienced. W/ SP you can have hallucinations and there are many ways to prevent these attacks. I suggest you investigate these options and see about excercising some of the recommendations to avoid/eliminate this very common affectation. Good luck and live well….

      Thanks for your comment. I couldn’t help but believe him because he wasn’t just slightly sobbing, this was a full out, red-in-the-face, cry till you’re hoarse thing. I tried connecting what I saw and what he saw, but I couldn’t because Black and white are 2 different colors, Lol. I even chalked it up to sleep paralysis, but I figured I had to be sleeping and according to him I wasn’t. I’ll look into it some more. Thanks again!

    thats crazy.how can you not be sleeping and think you were.i;ve never heared of that .but im not saying i dont believe you.thats not what im saying.and the thing that was running back and forth i would like to hear more about that.have you seen the shadow since?thanks for the story.

    • Kay says:

      I don’t know because I just knew that I was sleeping. When he told me that I wasn’t, I didn’t want to believe him but he insisted that he was telling the truth. The black shadow thing I haven’t saw, but my mother and sister have seen them (not in my grandmother’s new house where this took place, but the old one that we moved into after my grandmother got her new one built). The only other time I saw something white running towards me was when I was taking out the trash late one night and something kept telling me to look back so I glanced over my shoulder to see a white thing running in my direction. Needless to say, I didn’t investigate I simply threw the trash in the dump and ran in the house. That was before the hallway incident though. Since then, I haven’t seen it.

      • AnNa says:

        ya i would of freaked out to if i say it outside.at least it didnt hurt you thats a good thing.thanks for commenting me back.

    I’ve had the same sort of thing happen to me too; the paralysis thing. I work in a nursing home and i think i was over-tired. we’re not allowed to sleep on duty. Any way, I was so tired that i sort of fell asleep with my eyes open and you cant move and it feels like someone is pressing down on you or standing over you. It can be terrifying. But I do beleive what you said because i have seen a few similar things myself at work and in my old flat, i.e people who walked into the kitchen (which I thought was my workmates), only for nobody to be there.

    • Kay says:

      Thanks for commenting. The whole situation still scares me. Glad it hasn’t happened again.

  5. jw says:

    How in the WORLD could you go back to sleep after seeing this in your house? You would have let the burglers rob everything while you slept? Doesen’t make much sense……..

    • Kay says:

      The point is I couldn’t move. I was scared. I had no other choice but to drift back off to sleep or face the thing. I’m not a fan of investigating something that I know isn’t good for me. Maybe you should reread what was said before trying to get smart. KThx.

  6. Gurgen says:

    You probably had sleep paralysis.
    It would explain everything.
    Here are the Symptoms and characteristics..
    sleep paralysis occurs as a natural part of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Sleep paralysis occurs when the brain awakes from a REM state, but the body paralysis persists. This leaves the person fully conscious but unable to move. The paralysis can last from several seconds to several minutes “by which the individual may experience panic symptoms and the realization that the distorted perceptions were false”. As the correlation with REM sleep suggests, the paralysis is not entirely complete; use of EOG traces shows that eye movement can be instigated during such episodes.

    In addition, the paralysis may be accompanied by terrifying hallucinations (hypnopompic or hypnagogic) and an acute sense of danger. Sleep paralysis is particularly frightening to the individual because of the vividness of such hallucinations. The hallucinatory element to sleep paralysis makes it even more likely that someone will interpret the experience as a dream, since completely fanciful or dream-like objects may appear in the room alongside one’s normal vision. Some scientists have proposed this condition as an explanation for alien abductions and ghostly encounters. A study by Susan Blackmore and Marcus Cox (the Blackmore-Cox study) of the University of the West of England supports the suggestion that reports of alien abductions are related to sleep paralysis rather than to temporal lobe lability.

    HI kay! i think i finally found someone who had quite the same experience as I experienced for many times. and this is happens when you asleep (at least that is what you think) it is just like your body is whole paralyzed, you cant move your body at all, you can open your eyes and you try to scream but your voice does not even come out. I experienced this many times now and I tried to find if anyone has experienced anything like this and when that happens you will see things that it impossible for you to see when you’re awake. i think it was called suppression.

    I saw a ghost, a wide variety of forms. but the most I remember was a lady who dressed like a mid-century dress, She’ s Crying and holding which I think is a baby and she started moving slowly towards me. This happened when I was ready for a deep sleep. i can convinced you that it was not a dream. I started having this incident when I was 10 up until now when im 21. various kinds of things would appear to me. you only see a white light kay, i see real spirit, smiling at me with i swear malevolent horror face you would never, ever, wanna see it. and happened to me when I was in sixth grade.

    Things became difficult for me. I could not sleep at night. because when i fell asleep this thing will happen again. at first I did not know what to do. I just pray and cast it in the name of Jesus. I was hardly sleep at night and the results in the morning I cant got up to go to school because i stay awake all night afraid to close my eyes. my grades dropped. I tried telling my parents but they just said that I might be dreaming or maybe my blood circulation is not smooth.

    now i can deal with it. and when it happen i just close my eyes, i can still hear voices in my ear.. and noises that ghost try to show me, but i dont care i just kept my eyes closed and continue to sleep.

    is there anyone with the same experience?
