Paranormal Experiences In My Ancestral Home

Posted on September 29, 2008

I grew up in our family’s ancestral house here in the city, and I know that we have other companions that also reside in the house, companions that not all of us can see. I guess I’m really ok with it since I never felt threatened or scared of them. I’ve seen most of them but not yet all of them.

I have my own room and this room used to be a study room but in mid-high school my parents converted this study room to my bedroom. I am aware that I am sharing this room with someone or something.  I haven’t actually seen it, but it has made its presence felt more than once.

Sometimes I would feel that it’s sitting on the side of my bed and I would wake up but there’s no one in the room but me. Other times my cousins or my aunts would hear noises in my room and they would think I’m at home already but when they look in to check on me no one’s in my room. I have one aunt who refuses to enter my room if I’m not here, she is very much spooked by my room because there was a time when she barged in my room thinking I was there since she could hear someone typing away only to find my room empty. Other times it opens my closet and sometimes it opens and closes my bedroom door. And there was one friend I had who couldn’t stand to stay alone in my room for more than 2 minutes.

I also used to sleep in the room across the hall from my own room. My aunt, who is in Canada right now, used to sleep in that room. But I occupied it for half a year when she left, they don’t like rooms to be left unoccupied in our home, so we try to use all the rooms in the house at least two to three times a week. The bed in that room is pretty big and occupies most of the space in the room. But whenever I stayed in that room I always had my whole body on the bed, I never let my feet dangle by the edge of the bed. There is a black and hairy arm that sticks out from under the bed and caresses your leg if you do let your feet dangle. I’m not the only one who saw it, I have 2 other friends who have seen it as well.

There are a lot of other inhabitants in our home, in my parent’s bedroom there is someone who plays with marbles under my parent’s bed. My mom used to tell me that my brother and I would often complain as kids that we couldn’t sleep very well since someone kept on playing with marbles. Sometimes marbles would roll out from underneath the bed, other times the cabinets would open by themselves.

In one of my cousin’s room, I keep seeing a man with long hair and he is always wearing white. He is often standing by the foot of the bed and when I’m in my cousin’s room he’s just there staring at us, and that’s all he does. I don’t know what he wants or why he’s staying there, all he ever does is stare.

When I told my mom and aunts about it my grandmother told me that my grandfather used to dabble in the supernatural and that he had an amulet embedded in his body, without his shirt on you will find incantations tattooed on his body. My aunts and grandmother told me that before my grandfather passed away he had private conversations with select members of the family including his only son and my mother to pick who to pass the amulet to. According to them he can only lie in rest after the amulet has been transferred to someone. They also told me that the other inhabitants here are the guardians that my grandfather had left for the house, and that they have stayed on even after my grandfather has passed away.

There are still more stories to tell about this house that I love so much, too many weird things happen here on a daily basis, I’ll share some more stories next time about my home and my experiences both at home and in the places I go to.

    hi! liz
    hope you have a good day
    i like your story it seems to be so natural and it’s very surprisingly
    that you talk about it so calm and relax, well i guess you get used
    to it and accepted it as a part of life
    I had experiences like yours and it’s very weird and creepy
    but i never accepted it and i would always ran away
    and pretend like it never happens
    because everytime i tell my friends about it
    they think i have hallucination and crazy
    so much weird things happens in the Philippines
    well i think this is enough
    i hope you could share more of your story

    take care

    I don’t get freaked out too easily, but that arm under the bed… eee. I was wondering more about your g’pa. I think a more complete story about him would make for good reading! Who or did he even pass the amulet to?

  3. Chad says:

    tight story you got there, I’d love to read more about your house :3

    Fascinating!

    Has this home been in your family for very many years?

    The black hairy arm is what really got me on this one, its not the first time ive heard of something like that, and i MIGHT NOT have beelived this if i too havent had a similar expirience when i was about 12 in a half. Also, the Marbles is very beleivable, because ive noticed that for some reason anything Supernatural is highly fond and attracted to marbles. Eventhough i’m not a Ghost or anything like that, i’ve always loved marbles, i used to have a bunch of pinkish Champainge-colored marbles that i really loved, they all dissappeared, or perhaps i just misplaced them, wait, i know where they are, theyre in the shed in a black pot… I’ll have to go look for them… Anyhow, The part about the embedded amulet, was kind of gross, usually only those who are in the darkest of the art actually embed amulets or magical items into themselves… And the same goes for the supernatural tattoos..
