I was just replying to an article I’d read on xoJane’s Creepy Corner, and decided my comment was so long, it deserved a blog post of its own. So without further ado, I give you, A Collection of My Creepy Experiences.
Oh where do i begin? I’ve so much to say. I’ll even put everything in its own paragraph.
I’ve never done drugs, and only suffer from non-bipolar depression and anxiety. I’m not religious either.
I hear a voice. Female. Very like my (living) mothers. Its usually calling my name. Its hard to tell if it’s a hallucination or if i’m actually hearing it. I’ve convinced myself i’m hallucinating because I’m overtired, but I’m keeping an open mind.
3am (or more specifically 3:15, 3:16, 3:33 – after that i’m safe, or so I like to believe):
I avoid looking at my phone or being alone at these times (if I don’t know the time it can’t hurt me…. Right…..??)
I despise this with every inch of my being. Its usually accompanied by an overbearing panic attack and some form of noise, usually a buzz or a screech. Similar to me hearing voices, this happens when I’m overtired and have lost the battle to stay awake. Sometimes I feel as if someone is shaking me and on one occasion I had a visual hallucination of my friend at the time, who I later discovered is pure evil, sitting on top of me (i discovered she was toxic way after i hallucinated and way after my boyfriend dreamt of flies flying out of her mouth). I’ve since learned tricks like focusing on my breathing, making any tiny noise i can (my OH always knows to console me when this happens), and going to fecking sleep (which i am so not doing right now).
Pets & Ghosts:
My dog’s possessed. He has to be. He growls at random things and wakes up barking. He’s also an asshole. Every time, and I mean EVERY time, I watch or read something scary, He comes over to me and freaks me out. I’ve had to put him outside when watching scary stuff just for peace of mind. But yeah, he’s evil. He’s the first dog i’ve seen that seems to enjoy playing pranks on his owners. My favourite one was recently. I was actually reading Creepy Corner around 3am (because I’m insane), when i heard a long knock on my living room window. I… FREAKED…. OUT…. I looked around and noticed the fluffy one scratching, thumping his foot off the ground. Asshole…. He seems to like interrupting the Walking Dead too. Not to scare me, just because he’s evil.
Speaking to my dead friend:
When my friend died (more my exes friend – but we really bonded), it was because he fell off a moving bus after a drunken argument with his family. We didn’t think he intended to die, but there was always that “What if?”. The night he died, the three of us sat laughing, having a great time. He rushed off without saying goodbye as he had to go to a party. I remember at the wake, i spent a lot of time next to him with his girlfriend, joking about him waking up, telling us it was a prank, or giving out about his makeup. The week after his funeral I had a dream. I call it a dream, but it was more real than any dream i’ve ever had. We were in this room. Me, him and his girlfriend. We knew he was dead. We were happily chatting away and saying goodbye. It was so clear. After that dream, I felt more connected to his girlfriend and really wanted to see her happy again. I always thought of mentioning it to her but erred on the side of caution! I just had a thought recently, that maybe that experience was his way of telling us his death wasn’t a suicide, just a drunken miscalculation. I’ll never forget that dream.
Astral projection (Possibly):
Okay this ones a bit hard to grasp. When I was younger, I remember going to see my grandmothers father (on my mothers side). She says he died before i was born or when i was a baby, but I MET HIM! I was young enough, no older than 7, and we were at his house, with a few distant cousins. I vividly remember! Recently, I read some stuff on astral travelling, and stumbled across astral time travelling. That must be what i did. I know my grandmother, and her father (a skeptic) have had ghostly experiences too, from stories she’s told me. So its entirely possible we astral travelled together.
Okay, this isn’t about me, but family members on my mothers side. Let me start with my great-grandfather.
His wife died after the birth of her youngest daughter. My grandmothers sister was in trouble at school. She was being harassed by teachers and other kids. One night, he saw his dead wife at the end of the bed. She told him to talk to his daughter as she was in trouble. Now this man was a total skeptic, and as he was talking about it he laughed at it, saying it was scary clear, but he was going mad. But my grandmother then told him that her sister was being bullied!
Next, on to my grandmother. She has dreams of her aunts. When she dreams of one aunt, she knows she’s going to get good news, but when she sees another, its a warning of a bad news in the family. She swears these dreams are never wrong (and i believe she saw the “bad news aunt” when her sister was being bullied).
Now my aunt. This has nothing to do with the fact that she and her son are in a lot of my nightmares… but i thought i’d throw that out there anyway.
This woman lives in a haunted house. There’s a regular ghost, who they nicknamed Gussy, but for a while there was a malevolent one (it locked her into her room from the outside once – she only noticed when her son came to her door asking if she was calling him one night – WHICH SHE WASN’T!!!).
But back to the topic of dreams. One in particular. We were abroad for her wedding, and me and my OH kept fighting over his drinking. One night, it got really bad, and I was giving some serious thought as to whether I wanted to be in this relationship, and I really considered just taking my own life. The next morning she ran up to me saying “Thank God you’re okay!”, turns out she had a dream I died. I laughed it off, but couldn’t help feeling guilty.
Those were my experiences, now I want to hear about yours.
Creepy stuff excites me more than the average human being.
