Wow, I can't believe I haven't joined this yet.
I have been obsessed with the Paranormal since I was a 'wee lad.
MY TRUE GHOST EXPERIENCE
(Side Note- I've had to copy and paste this, because I have already written it. I don't have the patience to write it again, and this is 100% true. Enjoy!)
I guess I have to share my own experiences (Honest to God, I can't make this shit up)
Well, let me start with the background; My Great-Grandfather bought property on a nice lake and he decided to build a cabin. Everyone in my family (this was when my dad was little) decided to help build it. It took a few months, but finally it was completed. After a few years, my Great-Grandfather was at the cabin alone reading a book, and the next morning he was dead in his chair with the same book.
That was back in 1960 something.
So, when I was 5, I always had this creepy feeling about the cabin. I hated being alone (especially upstairs, where everyone sleeps). I would always rush down and up the stairs with my eyes shut.
Anyway, my family (2 brothers, and my mom, because my dad was gone) went to the lake and relaxed for the day. My mom (whom this experience happened to) opened the door to the cabin, and found the book that my grandpa was reading (it was lying on the table). My mom didn't think much of it (assuming someone took it out as a joke) and just put it back. 2 or 3 more hours later, she went back up into the cabin to make us lunch, and found the book lying out again. My mom thought it was one of us fooling around (I was very little at the time). She put the book back.
She started feeling a chill up her spine, but she shook it off. This happened repeatedly until at about 9 when she put us all to bed. She made sure that the book was in the shelf before putting us to bed. After she put us to bed, she decided to check if the book was in the shelf, but as you can imagine, it wasn't. The book ended up being gone, and we never saw it again.
I happened to have a few experiences also.
I was in 5th Grade, when we were staying at the cabin for the weekend. Nothing out of the ordinary happened all day, so I was assured that nothing bad would happen. So, I'm lying in bed at about 1:00 PM trying to go to bed, and I start seeing a light. I was facing the wall, and I could see a thin stream of green light peering through at me. It was a little hole, only big enough for me to look in.
I ended up freaking out, and covering it with a pillow, assuring myself that it was only my imagination. In the morning I decided to check if the pillow was still there, and sure enough it was. Only there wasn't a hole. Very creepy.
I also have heard noises, of someones feet shuffling (as if they were dragging) outside my room which scared me shitless.
Lastly, I have always had the eerie feeling like there was a secret compartment somewhere in the cabin. I don't know why, but I just felt it.
Last spring, we were cleaning out the cabin (and dusting, which we haven't done since we built it) and we were pulling out furniture that has been there for ages. We pulled out the fridge, and there we saw what was about 2 feet of extra space. Oddly enough, there was a portrait of my Great-Grandpa, resting behind the fridge for a long time.
Rate my experiences?
I also plan on purchasing a Ouija Board. It sounds so exciting!
