Strange Paranormal Encounters All My Life, Can Anyone Help?

26 Mar 2018

My whole life I have switched from believing in the paranormal to being sceptical about it all. However, I have been involved in many incidents which leave me confused, and I’m just seeking some explanation to tell me what is going on.
Before I start, I would like to point out that I am not religious, I have never done anything to speak to ghosts, or the paranormal and I have no understanding of the history of my house other than that it has been here for more than 100 years.

The first incident which I remember very clearly is when I was around six years old, and I saw a thin, pale man stood in the doorway of my room. He was very tall as his head was close to the top of the doorway. I remember that he was wearing a black suit, had a thin face and short, messy white hair. I remember the fear which overwhelmed me as everyone in my house was asleep and my siblings do not have any features which slightly resemble the figure that I saw. I told my family about the figure, but me being so young, she just dismissed it and said it was in my imagination.

Going forward about a year, my family would throw a party near Christmas where friends and family were invited. I and my friends were playing hide and seek in the dark which was a game we would regularly play, I was in my room, and my friends were in the room across the hall. I heard them scream so I went to them and they claimed there was a shadow in the room which cast itself on the wall. My brother came up after hearing the screams and asked what was going on and tried to give a reasonable and logical explanation as he is not a believer in the paranormal. However, the room was in the dark so no shadow could’ve been made, and if a shadow could’ve been formed, there was no object which would’ve made a shape which resembled a body. This shadow would be seen quite a bit, mostly near my parent’s bedrooms as they had stairs which went up to their bedroom and I would often see the shadow walk near them.

As I got older, I realised I could’ve been over thinking the situation due to how young I was, and I would get scared very easily. But things would carry on as I got older which left me confused. Things would stop for a while, maybe a few months, maybe a year. But when they started, they would last for a while. I don’t remember any main things happening after these, just reflections being seen in the TV when I’ve been downstairs on my own at night, my dog would always growl at my bedroom door etc.

Fast forward to when I was around 12 years old. I was having a sleepover with my friend, and we would sleep downstairs in the living room so we could use the big TV. I always kept the doors closed due to the experience from when I was 5, and I have never kept a door open since. But my dog was in the kitchen, when she made a large screeching noise as though she had been attacked and ran off up the stairs very quickly, I immediately assumed someone was in the house and grabbed the nearest thing to me which was a remote control (thinking about it now, that wasn’t a good object to defend myself with), and opened the door to find that there was no one there, the door wasn’t open and neither was any windows.

A few years later, I brought up the past events and was joking around with my family as they strongly don’t believe in ghosts, other than my sister. I told my sister that I had seen a man and she described him to look just like the man that I had seen when I was younger. This obviously left me confused because she had no way of knowing what I saw unless she had seen him too. My mum also brought up a time when I was younger, when I would always talk about my second family. I had no reconciliation of this, but she said that I would go in large amounts of detail about what we did and what they were like. I didn’t think anything of it till I started reading that young children would often see ghosts which would be confused with imaginary friends, or in my case, an imaginary family. Now, this could be anything; this could be my imagination as a child as I was quite a creative child. I would happily take any explanation because I am an open-minded person.

The main thing which left me confused happened last year in 2017. In my opinion, these were the worst things which would happen and would leave me frightened, sleepless and feeling threatened.

I started to have dreams which were so violent and gruesome. Dreams such as murder, decapitation, torture etc would happen, and these dreams do still take place just not as often. But in 2017, these dreams would occur every night, maybe more than three times. However, there was one dream which left me terrified. I was in my bedroom, and I was asleep, and something came into my room, grabbed me and dragged me down the stairs. I woke up to the feeling that something was holding my ankle tightly, and I found scratch marks around them later on that day. I would also start to find scratch marks on my back, thigh, and neck. I understand that I could’ve scratched myself in my sleep, but I cannot find any explanation for the scratches around my ankles. I would start to hear people walking up and down the stairs, and outside my door when I was home alone, id start to feel a presence in my room and then have my mirror knocked over and small objects knocked on the floor. My boyfriend told me that he had felt someone pull on his shirt near his back and pull on him. I started to think that if this were a ghost, it would always be near me, or in my bedroom, and it would always be near my doorway. After these started getting worse, I would start to become desperate and acting in a religious way despite the fact that I am not religious in any way. My mum, however, has given me cross necklaces and bibles as she was religious, and I had been given rosary beads from my relatives trip to Rome and the trip to the Vatican. I would start to sleep with my rosary beads and the cross necklace to try and feel safe.

As time passed by, it started to calm down, but I’m still confused about what it was or whether there are reasonable explanations for the events that happened. I understand that this story is kind of all over the place but the events which happened have happened my whole life, and I’ve just tried to include all the information which I could.

Thank you for reading and if you have anything which could help me that would be really appreciated.
