Eerie Encounters: The First Encounter


I often get asked to share my experiences as a paranormal investigator, and sensitive individual. So often, in fact, I thought I would do a test run on my blog to see what you all though about it. So without further adieu, here's the first story in my Eerie Encounters series.

My very first experience with the paranormal happened when I was very young, probably about 6 or 7. As was often the case at that age, I was playing outside of my Grandma's house, climbing the tree outside of the guest room window to watch the baby birds that lived in a nest in one of the higher branches. After a few minutes of watching the fledglings, I noticed the curtain of the guest room moving, which was odd, since my grandma was currently sitting on the porch, chatting with a friend of her's.

So, like the nosy child I was, I climbed down and went inside the house. Now, I was never a big fan of that room to begin with. The door was always shut, and I always got a very uneasy feeling whenever I had to pass by it to go to the bathroom in the same small hallway. There was just something about it that didn't feel right to me, and it went beyond the normal childhood fears. In fact, I don't think I ever slept or played in there, even though the room was meant for me. I slept on the couch in the living room, or on a pallet on the floor of my grandmother's room, but never in that guest room. 

So it was a rather odd thing for me to go there, and open the door to the room that scared me so. Despite the fact that the fan was off, and the rest of the house was a balmy 75, the room was cold, and the curtains were still moving as if being pulled about by the air moment of the still fan. It was then, as I stood in the doorway, staring at the fluttering curtains, that I saw the shape in the corner of my eye. It wasn't the form of a human per-say, but more like a cloud, floating near the bed shoved up against the right wall. It stayed there for a few moments, then slowly started floating in my direction.

Let me tell you, I have NEVER run so fast in my entire life. I was outside in the humid heat so quick, I don't actually remember running there. I was in pure hysterics by the time I ran around the house and climbed up the stairs of the front porch. I was talking so fast my grandmother couldn't understand me, and when she excused herself from the conversation with her friend, and tried to take me inside, it was even worse. After a few hours in the sun, when the fireflies started coming out, I knew it was time to go inside and I dreaded every moment.

But, as it turns out, my grandmother knew all about the back bedroom incident, as it had happened to her many times. She explained that sometimes things went missing in her house, and when she would go looking for them, they would show up in the strangest places, like the bathtub, or once, in a bowl of jello with the jello untouched.

That first experience sent me on a long path of research and inquiry about all things paranormal, and I hope you enjoy reading about some of my other experiences. Have you ever encountered something you couldn't explain?

I was a paranormal investigator for a short time and I find the paranormal very interesting. I look forward to reading more about your experiences.

My mom is really into the paranormal. She watches all of the ghost shows and she gets really into the supernatural. I'm definitely going to share this with her.

I've never really experienced anything like this myself, but have always been intrigued by it, and you tell a great story so I'm looking forward to more posts!

I think there is a lot in the world that the science and humans can't explain. Not everything is good though.
I'm a Christian and I base my belief in it. I know God created more than our eye can see but some of things He created have gone evil and wish nothing good to us.

Do I believe--YES--when I was away at college in a small town in Wisconsin ny then boyfriend and some other guys had rented a house--I saw things happen in there that still make me shiver! And just today my Mom is positive that there is a poltergeist in her apartment-things keep going missing and then are found days later but not where she thought they should have been--now she is having some memory loss-but heck--she is not that bad---

In our old home we used to have a door that would slam on my hand all the time for no reason. I was glad when we sold that house.

There have been several things I couldn't explain happen before. Always makes me wonder!

Lawna Noe said...

My mother believes deeply in this kind of stuff. She swears her house has an entity in it.

Anita Breeze said...

I have not had paranormal experiences but have been told that I have empathic abilities. I've had a few psychic events and dreams. Weird stuff!

Mel Cole said...

You got me into goosebumps. Now I wanna head to bed. I'm scared to learn about paranormal stuff.

Annie said...

I do believe in the paranormal & you told that so well! Keep doing it :)

Oh gosh my poor little heart can not take it. I've got chills all over my body from reading this post. Definitely going to wake my husband so he can accompany to the bathroom.

Nikki said...

My aunt is a paranormal investigator and always had the creepiest, most fascinating stories. Our family has been haunted since my mom was younger, so it's kind of a normal part of life for us. Mostly, now, our family ghost lives with my aunt. I think he knows he freaks me out too much to live with me!

Kristin Sumner said...

The paranormal intrigues me. I have that sensitive side as well. Started at a young age with out of body experiences. Glad I am not the only one :) I also get signs when someone close to will die. When my gma died the lights in my huse turned blue for a second, then my dad called about 20 mins later saying my gma passed away in the hallway about 20 mins ago. A few weeks ago, When trying to fall asleep, I had this rally bad pain in my heart, the next day we got a call saying my kids uncle timmy died from a heart attack. There are a few more, but I am not trying to write a book lol

Amanda McMahon said...

I 100% believe in these crazy things happening.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

Wow, you must have a very interesting life. I personally don't like to mess with those kinds of things and leave well enough alone.

Jen Temcio said...

This is like the stories on those TV Shows that my son watches. Pretty Scary Stuff! Not for me :) @dapperhouse

marielle said...

I can't imagine experiencing things like that, i'm very jumpy when it comes to things that I don't understand but surprisingly enough I LOVE watching scary movies (then i stay up all night too scared to go to sleep...)

I got goosebumps with that one. I've never been a fan of ghosts, but I do believe in them
