Well, I dont quite know where to start. Actually after reading the posts I realized that I have had many paranormal experinces at different times in my life which I have dismissed as just a figment of my imagination. I must also tell you that my family (mom, dad and brother) are non believers when it comes to paranormal stuff. So I never really got any support from them regarding this matter. I know that the following stuff is not scary but I am writing because I think these were paranormal manifestations and i would like to share it with people like you who would believe and understand me and also help me understand better.
Let me start from the time I had my first experience (I cant remember beyond this). Before that a quick background. I was probably 6 or 7 years old then. We used to live in a very old bungalow. It had lots of trees, a little pond and a huge backyard. It was surrounded by huge walls. I was a rambunctious kid so I used to play all around the house. I used to climb the walls, run around the backyard and whatnot.
Anyways, things started happening when I was returning one day from school. At the corner of my eye I saw what appeared to be a white form floating in the air. Suddenly it just occurred to me (I still wonder how and why) that it was actually moving along with me and that this was a gin (the term we use in our country to denote spirit). Nothing much happened and I ( I still dont know why) dismissed the whole thing, thinking it must have been a polythene or some white bag floating in the air. Maybe it was… who knows?
My mom’s bedroom had an attached bathroom which could be seen clearly from her bed. One evening I was taking a nap in my mom’s bedroom when suddenly I awoke with a startle. I looked at the bathroom and what I saw, I still remember to this day. I saw a man completely dark, extremely muscular with a
huge head covered with hair. He was holding an old lantern which only shed light on his eyes. He had normal eyes but the way he was looking at me wasn’t normal and it made the eyes look very very scary to me. I couldn’t scream so I blinked my eyes and all I remember is that he was gone. I must also mention that all this happened when the light in my mom’s room was on. Was this my imagination? But it felt so real!
The next thing I am about to tell you is something that has happened to me on numerous occasions but I could not figure it out till yesterday. I was going through a webpage which had real pictures of orbs. It just occurred right then to me that all these years, the lights that I saw when I blinked
my eyes were not just flashes that I thought anyone could see, those were actually orbs. However, I would be very grateful if someone can please tell me whether my conclusion is right or not? It happened a lot to me when I was around 7 or 8 years old. Everytime I lied on my mom’s bed and looked up at the ceiling, I would see flashes of light speeding across the room. The flashes would be in different colors ( pink, light green… I cant remember but they were pretty). They were also harmless. Back then I just felt that those speedy flashes of light were gin (spirit) but later I dismissed the idea. It happened to me rarely after we moved out of that house.
Let’s skip a few more years. I was probably 15 or 16 then. A boy from our school died in a terrible car accident. I never really spoke to him but I remember that he was very shy and quiet and all in all a nice guy. He (let’s call him Z) died with his elder brother while they were driving on the main road. It was really tragic and I felt very depressed. I dont know why but I felt EXTREMELY bad for Z. One evening I was sitting on the roof of our house and I was thinking about Z and how terribly he died when suddenly I felt a gust of wind blow past me… it wasnt menacing or anything… in fact it was actually like a strong breeze and surprisingly I wasnt scared. In fact I said softly “Is that you Z?” and as far as I remember the breeze blew again.
I am sorry. I am sure I have BORED you people but I had to write this and let it out. I have had other experiences but I dont want to bore you anymore. So maybe some other day. Thank you for reading this.
