Spooky Encounters


I strongly believe in an afterlife and I also believe in the existence of ghosts. I'm going to share with you my story of some spooky encounters we've had.

When I was a young girl I'd wake in the night and see an old lady with curly white hair who wore a navy dress with white polka dots. She would be standing at my bedroom door and sometimes there would be a man with her. When I saw them I didn't  feel scared of them exactly but they definitely made feel spooked. My parents had often said as a baby that I would be smiling and giggling as if I could see someone who wasn't there.

I remember whenever I'd get up to go to the toilet which was downstairs I'd dash back up and into my bed and under the covers as I felt that was the way to protect me when I was feeling spooked. There was one occasion when I went to the toilet in the night and a radio that wasn't plugged in or had any batteries in all of a suddenly just turned on. I don't think I ever ran so fast in all my life back up those stairs. 

As i've got older I didn't see the ghosts anymore. But I still often wondered if they were there but I just could no longer see them. 

At the age of 18 a few months before I turned 19 my Dad passed away. It had a huge impact on me especially mentally.  My sister not long after his passing had a spooky experience of the radio turning on all of a sudden and the clock hands spinning. As for me I've had moments where I know my Dad is there with me. Stuart and I have lived in various flats over the years and I've definitely had moments when I just knew my Dad was there which is a lovely feeling.

After having Blake I definitely have known my Dad has visited us in the flat we were previously lived in. I'd feel a cold chill next to me and even though I couldn't see anything and nothing spooky has happened I just knew. I've had it when I've been poorly and sleeping and I'd feel someone sit on the bed and open my eyes to see if Stuart had popped in and no one was there. My Dad would when I was poorly before he died come in and sit on the bed to check on me so on them occasions it must have been him. 

Blake has even had moments when he would smile and giggle when no one is there just like I did as a baby. I do believe in them moments that it's my Dad he could see. Last year Stuart's Dad sadly passed away and Blake has definitely been communicating with him. At the flat we had moments where Blake would do the usual giggling and smiling but I didn't have the strong feeling of it being my Dad. There was one occasion when Blake was doing this before preschool and Stuart had asked him who he was talking to and Blake had said Grandad. 

There wasn't  any prompting for him to say that. Especially as you may know Blake has a speech delay and autism and at the point he wasn't as verbal as he is now.

We've not had anything yet since moving to this house though. 

Have any of you had any similar experiences?

  1. I am sorry you lost your Dad and at such a young age and I am pleased some of your experiences bring you comfort. My late mum used to see her mum in a Navy blue cape and did not understand but older relatives could tell her her mum had worn one in a previous job. I have seen someone who could not have been where I saw him (a living person) and I had this odd experience where I was with him and told him a turnstile would open if i looked it and it did. He tried to show other people but then it just went back to normal. When my late mum passed away, I lit a candle and was bereft at which point my baby son who was sleeping in the room with us burst out laughing in a giggle I had never heard before and I felt her saying "What are you bluthering and roaring about" and so we knew to turn back to life. There is more to this life than we know for sure #Blogtober19 Oh and my oldest son used to say he had worked on aeroplanes with his Dad and they were friends then even before he really knew his Dad worked in the RAF

  2. Yes, yes, yes, yes! I also used to chatter and babble to an unseen person in the middle of the night. When I was around 7 or 8, there used to be an almighty crashing from my bedroom, which I never heard. Apparently my dad used to stand outside my door and fly in when it started, trying to catch me doing it but I was always asleep. One day when I was at my grandma's, he went into my room and lifted all the furniture up and banged it down, even the wardrobe which I couldn't have lifted. My mum sat downstairs, listening, but he couldn't replicate the noise. Eventually they decided it was a poltergeist.

    When i was 13, I used to see my dog, who had just passed, walking in through the back door and heading for her usual hidey spot.

    Recently I saw the ghost of one of my guinea pigs which was upsetting but very nice at the same time.

  3. I don't think I've had any spooky experiences apart from when my youngest used to look and smile to the corner of our living room like she could see someone we couldn't. Eek!
