Weird Ghost In My Parents Apartment

Posted on June 15, 2009

Hello, my name is Andrew and I’ll share here what I’ve experienced few months ago. It was Christmas holiday and I was back home from college. My parents live now in a larger apartment than the one I grew up in and I didn’t had much time to spend here since I’m living in another town.

Second night there, I went to bed around 1am after watching some TV. It’s a very quiet neighborhood and you can sleep here without being disturbed, so I pulled the hangings on the window to keep dark too. I was sleeping like a baby and suddenly something woke me up, a sound of a door in the house. I raised my head to see what happened and kept staring on the my door glass. We have that here, and it’s like 30% transparent.

I heard footsteps but not coming from my parents room so I kept staring to see what was going on, I doubted that a thief could be inside since it’s the third floor. The footsteps got louder and louder and they were near. Then someone approached the door and suddenly I felt a deep cold in the room. It was a woman dressed in white, probably a white robe and then she went back the direction she came from. It was clear what I saw, and I was sure it was my mom.

I checked my phone and it was around 4 am, it made for few seconds light in my room. Also I had a new message from Orange Mobile spam which I checked the next day to make sure it wasn’t a dream.

After it was dark in my room again, I checked the door and I saw the woman coming very fast from the kitchen which is next to me. But we always keep the doors closed in the house, she passed straight through the door. After that, I was sure she wasn’t my mother because why would she walk around the house at that hour? She came close to my door and she was staring on the glass like she couldn’t see me. Then I could see her unusual white face and her dark eyes looking at me.

I got very scared, I turned away and put the pillow on my head. Then I started feeling that cold again and her presence in the room, just like she was right next to my bed. It was like a shock since I’ve never experienced paranormal stuff around me. I didn’t know what to do, to remove the pillow and look around or to stay there in silence and almost shaking to death. I’m not that much of a religious person, but the best decision at that moment was to start praying to god.

Just after that, I didn’t felt the cold anymore nor that presence around me. I got off the bed and quickly turned the light on, kept it like that one minute to calm myself down, shut it off and then went back to bed. I checked again around me and the door and everything was back to normal.

After I woke up in the morning, the first thing I did was asking my mom why the hell she came to my door staring at me that night. She told me I was imagining things and that she never left her room. Now after that I was sure it wasn’t a dream or my mom but I did knew the first owner’s mother died in that apartment and I don’t know how.

Since that day I came back home and spent some nights there but never experienced that again and hope I never will again.  Sorry for my bad English… it’s not my first language but I tried the best out of it.

    Well,maybe the lady just wanted to be friends…if she was the former owner’s mom! Or perhaps it was a night special in some way to her, maybe that’s why she showed herself. We don’t know anything for sure,so there could be many conclusions.
    I wonder if your parents have ever encountered something similar. Did u ask your mom?
    Anyway,thank God u weren’t harmed.
    Thanx for the cOol story!

    She just wanted to know who was in her room ;)
    But, really… it sounds like it bothered her, that you were in “that” room and she was just waiting for you to leave. I would give serious thought to doing a ghost rescue-
    Give her the chance to cross over first, rather then doing a cleansing- which will simply move her to someone else’s home. It’s best done when your alone in the house and after a couple days of praying for this spirit. Tell “her” that her spirit has left it’s body and she is no longer alive in human form. Then tell her to look towards the light, and that as soon as she moves into it, all of her loved ones will be waiting for her within the light. That there is peace and serenity in the light and that it is time for her to move on now.
    I say this because even though you have not seen her for a second time, it doesn’t mean she’s still not there. Good Luck.

    She was probably confused to see everything changed and you in her room. If I were you I probably wouldn’t take the chances of speaking to her or anything like that. (She might be a little peeved) ;) Keep praying, and please I beg you, beleive in Christ as your Savior.

    I’m sorry , but I think this is a made up story, you’re parents don’t experience anything only you when you go to visit. Then you e turned the light on and then off and went to sleep, from my own experience if you really did see a ghost you’d be waking up the house!

    A lot of people can experience paranormal activity while others can’t. For one, my mother has had things happen at the our house but her husband has never experienced anything in this house. Also, some people are more calmer when experiencing things like this. Not everyone is afraid when it comes down to it. Me personally….would freak.

    Great story! My worst fear is to have someone staring through the window at me and just seeing a face. Definitely gave me the shivers

  6. Gregory Brown says:


    I used to pray a lot more in my life than I do now. It isn’t really funny. But, when we really find ourselves in a place alone and in need of help, we suddenly pray to God for help…, I’m talking about myself as well as you.

    Good story! Pray more, live longer.


  7. Karen M. says:

    K, I don’t agee with that if a place is haunted, normally everyone who lives there will experience something, ghosts make their presence know to no matter who is in the house, in the haunted house that I grew up in all my family members have experienced something there.

  8. anthony says:

    if it was a mother who died you were probobley in her childs old room and she went to check on him or her and maybe that was the night she died

  9. K says:

    Everyone has their opinions I suppose Karen M.

  10. :D says:

    Karen M.,
    Some ghosts or spirit’s don’t show themselves to everybody! They could justs be attracted to one person. Some kids have imaginary friends that turn out to be ghosts, and the parents don’t realize it.

  11. Karen M. says:

    :D ? Well, from my own experience of growing up in a haunted house, all of my family members have one experience or other, I agree that they don’ show themselves to everyone but they will at least make their presence known to everyone there! I have never heard of a haunted place where only one person experienced something!

  12. Karen M. says:

    If you want to I have a story here called “the mason and his wife”, that’s my experience
