Paranormal Experiences In My Life

Posted on March 9, 2008

I am a 19 year old, regular college teenager. But I have experienced many weird things in my life and no one ever believes me about them. I know that when my girlfriend of two years says she does, she just tries to comfort me. Its always been like this.

It has been happening as far back as I can remember, but when I was younger, my experiences were the worst. Although my earliest childhood memories are faded like most people, I remember that I would occasionally wake up in the middle of the night and see a man in my room.

My mom thought they were hallucinations so I went to a doctor to get it checked out. He said I was fine and that it would most likely end as I got older (probably thinking that I made it up).

The last time I saw the figure was maybe at about ten years old, but stuff still happens all the time to me (well by all the time I mean at least one or two times a year but more when I was younger).

For example – There were a few times I was laying in bed trying to get some sleep and something grabbed my ankle. It got to the point where I couldn’t sleep in my room anymore. My family moved my room into the basement which was creepier, but I could honestly not sleep in my room. It was going fine for most of the year until I heard someone working out on my step-dad’s weights. It was pitch black, two in the morning – I was extremely scared. Because of this, sadly, I work the night shift, go to school, and sleep when I get a chance in the day.

My occupation is currently a baker for a local bakery. I bake overnight and they sell it during the day. The area with the ovens is located in the back of the building, in a sort of closed off section. It’s bit dark and noisy, but its not that big of a deal. Every once in a while maybe at 12 – 4 in the morning, I will get a call on the company phone back there. Nobody knows the number besides my boss, me, the other bakers, and the cafe manager.

I thought maybe someone was playing a prank on me and I asked everyone about it. No one knew what I was talking about, and it happens on a regular basis. I work all alone at night so usually that freaks me out.

My friends, family, doctors, and therapists have always told me that I was making it up, hallucinating, sleepwalking, or w/e, but I don’t know what to think. Maybe someone can give me some input or advice.

    You’re not crazy eric. You are however sensitive to the spirit world and that can make your life hell if you don’t except it. I know I’ve been where you’re at. I’m 34. It took me most of my life to come to terms with it. I deal with it by means of my faith in Jesus. which is odd too as most Christians have a real problem with anything paranormal. I’m not trying to ram my beliefs down your throat, just sharing that for me, prayer works to make things go away that I don’t want around. also keep in mind not everything is evil or out to get you. sometimes it seems people get lost or confused after death, and want help. They may be dead but they’re still people and react to things like they did in life. If they know you can see them, they’re going to try to get your attention, and help. They can get desperate or mean, just like the living. Try telling them you can’t help, or ask that they leave. Most will. Again, prayer works for me for the ones who won’t. You don’t have to live in fear, you’re not crazy. You do however have the burden of having to cope with it while the world at large thinks it’s nuts.I hope this helps. If nothing else take solace in the knowledge that you’re not alone, there are plenty of us out there going through this. Take care.

    Some will give you what they think is happening and that is fine but I will tell you that I have experienced many similar things through out my 40 years and my best advice is try not to be scared. I know that sounds ridiculous but if you can tell yourself “okay this is not my imagination and I am scared but it will pass” As long as you aren’t physically hurt, which has never happened to me, once you can get past the initial fast heart rate, chills and basic oh crap feelings, remember you are okay and have a probable stronger link to spirits etc than most.

    If you can go over the experience slowly afterwards you may be able to do what I do and focus on the experience and not the scared. I don’t really try to over analyze the events just go over it realize you will probably never really get it but for some reason this thing needed to be acknowledged by a live soul and move on.

    I have had more people than I can count tell me why a certain ghost reappears at my parents house to me and many other family members. She looks like me to everyone but me. To me she looks like a girl, lady whatever. More than a handful have told me (without my asking them) that she is an “imprint” of me. That I love that house and my memories there so much I’ve left a bit of myself there and she does appear when I am upset or stressed.

    I’ve learned to gain a little comfort from her but everyone else is completely freaked when she visits. I’ve also had kid spirits of varying ages visit and or call me and I’m not always alone. These tend to follow me. At first I was at every available Mass possible (I’m a devout Catholic) then I just started to take deep breathes and go with it. Some have been shy and played peek a boo some have been jealous of my kids and thrown temper tantrums. I have simply dealt with them according to their behavior when it is happening and then have uncontrollable shakes until I can get over the initial scare.

    My advice to you is that you know you are most likely not crazy and most definitely not alone. Never open doors you don’t want scary things to come through by Ouija boards etc.. My Dad has always said “Don’t call the devil because he will come” Stay away from numerology and that kind of stuff. I’ve found it tends to be an invite.

    Being a bit more open to the paranormal I have found that stuff fascinating but man when I mess with it I get responses I’d rather not experience too often. Good Luck and God Bless!

    i have always been afraid to be alone and too have no one around and lets say i believe in God, heaven, demons, and hell and my baby brother hears them. I some times see him talking to himself or at someone, but I cant see them so I’m scared a lot too be alone or around no one!
