Who Was Stroking My Hair?

Posted on May 1, 2011

My story is rather short and not super scary but it scared me when it happened. I can’t remember how old I was… I was either 7, 8, or 9. Anyways, my encounter happened at my old house where my bedroom was in the basement. So, this is what happened…

In the morning around 5:30 or 6:00 I woke up to someone stroking my hair behind my ear over and over. I couldn’t see who was doing it because I was on my side facing the wall my bed was against. And also, who ever was stroking my hair was also singing a song that had the same calm tone as if you were singing a lullaby. I couldn’t understand the words of the song because they sounded as if the were mumbled but yet the song sounded clear… it is really hard to explain. Maybe muffled is a good word to explain the song.

So anyways, I was petrified with fear. I was trying to scream but no sound would come out. I remembering going through my mind whether or not I should turn around and see who was doing this. After about a minute I turned around to see but no one was there! I screamed at the top of my lungs and jumped out of my bed and ran upstairs to my parents room.

I woke up my mom and told her what happened (I told her about someone stroking my hair but I didn’t tell her about them singing because I didn’t want her thinking I was to crazy). My mom just told me that it was just a dream and so I went back to my bedroom and stayed awake until my parents got up to make breakfast.

Why I wrote this is because I’m wondering if anyone knows what it was, why it was there, and if it was dangerous. My guess is that it was just a ghost. I still can’t figure out why it came to me though. I’m also wondering if I couldn’t understand the song because maybe it was a different language. Do ghosts have a different language? If any of you guys have an idea or if you’ve experienced the same thing, I’d love to hear about it.

    Well mabey it was the spirit of someone who used to live there, and by what you’ve said it could have been a mother mabey? She probably saw you as one of her children, but ‘m just making guesses. I think you shouldn’t be afraid as ong as she didn’t hurt you :D

  2. red velvet says:

    i think this spirit was trying to watch after you as by softly stroking your hair, but i agree with what alexis said by this spirit thinking of you as their own children, or maybe it was a different loved one without children. i also agree that this was a good spirit.

  3. Doris says:

    well i think it was a mother that might have lost her children when they died and when she diesd her spirit stayed there and thought of u as one of her children or only a child…and i dont think the have a diffrent language!

  4. sunsetsphere says:

    It is probable that ghosts have a language not familiar to you … their language might not even be of this earth! Next time try to remember a word or two. But too bad, I guess, it will not happen again.

  5. trolldoll says:

    i think it was someone who cared for you in life and in death!

  6. prettyone0 says:

    I think that this was a ghost or a spirit, but for my opinion i think it was a good ghost. Cause if it was a bad ghost it would of got you by now, (depends on how long this happend).
    Sometimes i would watch scary videos before bed and all that stuff, so i was afraid if something would pop out.
    but…..
    PLEASE READ VERY IMPORTANT AND MAY MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT GHOSTS:
    1. If i was ever scared my dad would always say ” if your so scared of ghosts and you thought a ghost was in your room, don’t you think it would of got you by now?”
    2. Heres another way: Pretend your in a room with a ghost or in a haunted house, just think in your mind this ( GHOSTS ARE JUST NORMAL PEOPLE JUST INVISIBLE, THEY’RE NOT REAL).
    Hope this helped! :)

    i think it [the ghost] could have been a few things
    1 your spirit guide
    2 a ghostly mother/family member just making sure your ok
    3 your guardian angel
    and if you could remember a couple words it might make more sense
    do you still live there or near by [ if not see if the people living there{if any} have had the same experience as you

      I now live one block away from the house and my family is renting it. That’s a great idea to ask the renters if they have had any “odd” experiences! I had quite a bit in that house…
