I saw it! sometime in summer 1996
I had been working midnight shift. I blocked up all the windows and got the bedroom really dark so I can sleep during the day. This house was built at least 50 years ago. It is a small blue 2 bedroom house with a basement and an attick. My family experienced several strange events here, odd noises, cold spots, feelings of presence, and even objects moving by themselves.Sometimes we would hear crashing noises, in the basement, yet nothing was out of place. Once I heard scratching under the dresser, nothing was there. Once my now ex-wife heard a man clearing his throat in an empty corner of the room. Sometimes I even think I feel like something lightly moving or touching the covers at the end of the bed at night. My ex saw the bathroom door open by itself. During the middle of the day, early evening, I woke up from a sound sleep in the bedroom. Something was different, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I was the only one in the bedroom at the time. Then, I saw it as I looked over in front of the closet. A man slightly translucent ,and slightly luminous, was floating about 12 inches off the floor near the closet at the end of the bed. I now fully awake saw a man dressed in an old fashioned collarless long sleve white colored shirt with a dark vest. Dark slacks and dark dress shoes. He was pretty tall . He appeared especially tall since he was floating at least a foot off the floor. He had a medium build. He wore old fashioned wire rim glasses and had a handlebar mustache and short brown hair. I could see him quite clearly. I could also see right through him. He was also slightly luminous. Something looked familiar about him even though I have never seen him before. I was scared at first and couldnt beleive it. It all happened so fast I didn't have time to get really scared. I had just enough time to take a good look. It was a good thing I did. He faded away in only a couple of minuites. He had sort of a confused scowl on his face as if to say he didn't know what either he was doing here, or what I was doing here. I never saw him again, but sometimes he still makes his presence known. Think I am crazy or hallucinating if you want. I know what I saw. I saw a ghost.
I was very young when I saw it. I must have been somewhere around 4-5yrs old. I was lying in bed for some reason I dont remember I was awake after everyone else was asleep. I was just lying there and saw it come right in through the window like it wasn't even there. The window was closed. It didn't damage the window, it was a quiet night no lightning. I didn't live near a swamp. (not swamp gas) It was a white slightly luminous ball perfectly round sphere. It looked kind of a milky color slightly fuzzy inside. It was about 8in in diameter. It floated right into my room. There was no breeze to move it around. It went straight away under my bed. Was I scared? Yes, you could say I was teriffied. I didn't know what this thing was or why it was in my room. I especially didn't like the idea of it being under my bed where I couldnt see what it was up to. I made a mad dash down the hall to my parents room. When I looked back there it was right behind me following me effortlessly down the hallway. I lept into my parents bed and pulled the covers over my head not wanting to see where it went from there or what it did next. After a while exaustion took over and i fell asleep. The only thing I can think it might have been was a spirit orb of some kind. What do you think
Experience in Texas. Jan 1997
While vacationing in texas I had a strange experience in a hotel in Austin. (Hilton Towers North) I kept seeing a shadowy image of a man in our hotel room. This wasn't only at night, but also in the day time. I could even look right at it and watch it move about. During the day it was very hard to see, but you could see it by the movement. Once you knew where to look you could make out a shimery area shaped like a man. At night it was very dark. It was blacker than the darkness of the room and had little flecks of light in it. Once I saw an image (the best I can describe it) It wasn't exactly a dream, it was more like watching something on a screen. It looked like a man in buckskin with a wide brim hat. He was tall and I got the feeling he was trying to make contact with me. I also saw another image of a horse with wild eyes that looked paniced. I think these were some kind of psycic image imprinted by the shadow man. Before you think Im crazy he is just seeing shadows and light tricks I wasnt the only one who saw it. The person I was with also saw it independently of my sightings and this was before I told them what I had seen. The person I was with became frightened one night after watching a movie with me. On the way back to the hotel she jumped at me frightened. It took me a while she didn't want to tell me what she had seen, after a little proding she said she saw a shadow of a man running at her. I was almoast floored. Someone else had seen exactly what I had seen and I hadn't even told her anything yet.
Then we went to San Antonio to visit the Alamo. A block away from the Alamo we ate at a resturaunt (Fudruckers). The bathroom was located in the basement. The same lady was with me. During the course of our meal she had to get up to use the facilities. She came back disturbed and told me she felt someone watching her while she was down there. She felt a presence. So I had to check it out. I went down to the mens room also in the basement. There was definetely an odd feeling of presence down there. Like when someone is there watching you. It was eriee. There was an odd tension in the air. You had to be there to experience it. Later we went on a walking ghost tour of San-Antonio, but we had already had our encounter. There is a lot of history there and aparently a lot of ghost.
Experience at home sept 99
The other day I took a bath in my whirlpool tub. Then went to bed. I woke at about 12:30 to hear a buzz/humm sound next to my bed. I hear this noise a couple of times. I think to myself maybe the ghost is back. (ive had other experiences in this house). Then i roll over and i feel like somthing sticks my arm something sharp. I feel all around the bed. Nothing is on the bed at all. I get up get a drink check my arm in the mirror and there is a pencil thin red scratch on my arm about 3 inches long. This is the first time i have ever been physically harmed by a ghost. It was very odd. Then about 10min later after i get back to bed i hear a muffled mans voice next to my bed where i heard the other sounds. I eventually get back to sleep and have no more experiences yet, but Im sure he will be back.
Nov 26 99 llam.
Well, You may think Im crazy but the ghost woke me up this morning. I was just remarking last night before i went to bed about the lack of activity lately and that i knew the ghost was real and that i wish he would do something just to let me know he was still around. Sure enough this morning Im awakened by what sounded like somone banging on the door. I think to myself that maybe the kids are back home. Then i rememberd they are still over at my ex's house this morning. Curious I get up and go into the living room the chain is on the door. Then i hear it. The attick door sounded like someone just gave it a good push. I check and nothing is behind the door. The attick door was quiet all summer. Yet in the fall it occasionally rattles itself. It happens a few more times when i walk away from the door. I had never heard it rattle so loud before. Then I thank the ghost and it stops and doesent happen again. Jamie
