Paranormal Activity ain’t just for the movies!

I had hoped it stopped!

I had hoped it stayed behind us!

I had hoped it just left us alone!

I had hoped my ceasing looking for answers to it changed everything!

I had hopes … but they vanished FOREVER after last night!

Unlike the movie, paranormal activity within your home — you know, the place where you are to feel most safe — isn’t entertaining, to say the least!

RECAPPING THE EVENT:

I was lying in bed playing around on my laptop with the tv lowly humming in the background while my husband was just dozing off as both kids were in their respective rooms having difficulty falling to sleep due to the recent time change. I looked up to see a shadow of our gaming table on my entertainment room’s wall. Something had caught my eye so I was staring at the shadow being cast upon the wall wondering if a car passing-by caused the capturing of my sight yet I heard no car. I sat up in bed still staring at this shadow; still appeared normal — as I felt it was just the gaming table reflecting off onto the wall, a reflection from the nearby night light’s glow. At least 20-seconds passed by and I was still sitting up and staring at the shadow. I had PLENTY of time to measure it. Stood about 7″ tall and it was symmetric with squared edges, from what I could gather. All of a sudden it TURNED to ‘look’ at me; ‘we’ made visual contact for a nice while despite I saw no eyes, no face, just a tall block of shadow nothingness … as if it knew I saw it and it wanted me to watch. It turned again and I watched legs appear from no where walking this ‘figure’ toward my sons’ bedrooms! I was stunned as this was DEFINITELY a ‘Top 10 Paranormal Moment’ for me despite my YEARS of experience, I was able to immediately react! I leapt out of bed and rushed to my sons’ rooms all the while saying loudly, “I don’t flippin’ think so!” so the ENTIRE house awakened.

I tried to get both of my sons into OUR master bedroom for the night but both were adament they were fine with simply bunking-up in the same room afterward. So I helped my oldest make a pallet on the floor of my youngest’s bedroom all the while thinking how HAPPY I am we adopted a puppy. The puppy loves my youngest insanely so they cuddle together at night; and as many know tis believed animals ‘sense’ things we normally do not. Knowing the animal was in the room with them for the night gave me a HUGE peace-of-mind as to return to
sleep … however my adding the Bible to the door way as well as blessing their room (& them) helped me cope some too so the rest of the night was uneventful.

Now, those are the FACTS in this ‘case’, time for MY feelings!

I was scared yet madder than hell! I will NEVER forget seeing ‘it’!!!!! EVER! And the BEST visual I can give you, my reader, is that ‘it’ was a LOT like the predator … yea, that’s a good simile. Just like in the movie and it paused, made eye contact & turned.

What do I think shadow ‘people’ are? Well, frankly I’m on the fence as I’m not fully sure what we’re picking-up with our paranormal studying is truly remenants of past humans; sometimes I’m curious if they aren’t aliens living peacefully amongst us yet knowing we truly are a violent animal, humans that is. We react with anger first so I don’t blame ‘them’ for hiding, if true. Or, what if it never was human.? (that reality frightens me so much, I don’t even want to go there in dialogue)

Let me add that I’m NOT stating it threatened me in any way as with ANY para-experience fear is emitted by the person who witnesses the event. However, I just didn’t like how it ARROGANTLY paused to look in MY direction (it KNEW I was watching & wondering). And then, taking a QUICK jaunt toward my children’s bedrooms … leaves room for worry.

Although I’ve heard a sobbing when we FIRST moved into our new home in 2008 coming from downstairs LATE one night as well as my son AND his friend seeing my sister in his (new) bedroom, this home is a quiet one; so unlike the prior home we lived in. I thought my staying away from ‘seeking-out the paranormal’ was the reason for our peacefulness — guess that’s not the case afterall. I’m a ‘magnet’ nonetheless!

Hoping this was an isolated event. If not, rest assured I’ll blog!

Hugs & happy hunting …

Lions, Tigers & Shadow people, OH MY!

My mother spent the night at her home where my brother committed suicide despite she’s now living elsewhere, with us. During the night she experienced the oddest ‘dream’ despite when she told me it was so ‘real’!

She saw a black mass in ‘human’ form hovering in the corner of her bedroom; a person but all in black, even the eyes were blackened. Awakening from a VERY deep & medicated sleep she thought it was my niece who lives with her so she called out to it by her name demanding she get down before she hurt herself. It obeyed and leapt down but then oddly it stumbled over my dad’s old trunk at the foot of her bed. I asked her how she felt when all of this happened and she told me she was frightened. Hmmm ….

That is what SHE told me the next morning on the phone and here’s the true tale I shared with her immediately …

The home where this occurred to her is where my brother committed suicide as well as was the home to my husband and I of which we purchased 15-years ago. There we raised our two sons until moving to our current home. During our life there odd things happened but I dismissed them for paranormal activity around me was normal. It wasn’t until when my oldest was about 5 I truly began to realize the severity of the activity, though. My then-very-young-son told me then how a “ball of light” was flying around his head so he threw it out his window; about the young boy who continually begging him to allow him to play along; and about the shadow FAMILY who lived in his closet — a dad, mom, young son his age, and a toddler. One night he told me he heard the mom whisper to the young son, “shhh, you’ll wake Bobby”! This is when I started getting in touch with paranormalist to gain an understanding as to what what going on. I mean I had an idea but talking shadows and balls of light were new to me. I discovered, as many of you have, that ghost hunting groups were popping-up all around the world. I contacted a group but was hesitant to let just anyone in my home so I started to attend their monthly meetings … got hooked, took-on titled positions for a few years yet never in that time did I ‘officially’ have an investigation done in this home.

As many of you, my readers, have read my living-brother has been experiencing a lot in that home since so much so a man of 46-years sleeps with his light on. My niece also has seen unexplanable things. And all, including my mom, have heard LOUD rappings on the doors.

And before you wonder, yes I plan on investigating the home once my mom, brother and niece move-out. I don’t want to ‘upset’ anything. However, I have rethought my blessing of the home because I TRULY FEAR ‘something’ may follow me here, to our new home. I’m not a seasoned ‘house cleaner’ so tis probably for the best! Hoping whoever buys the home are brave, spiritually knowledgeable souls. (or maybe whatever is going on is doing so JUST to us)

Just wanted to update y’all regarding the paranormal goings-on over there. Will continue to share as information deems worthy.

Happy hunting …
