Before I got married, I never experienced any sort of ghost-related incidents. I'm not sure of other religions and beliefs but in my religion, it is said that when a person is really sick and weak, there are lots of spirits that may wander throughout that particular home.
Just some time before my father-in-law passed away (and this was about 3.5 years ago), I had a couple of experiences as well as my husband. I remember once during the daytime, my husband and I had taken a nap. I woke up for no reason, looked around my room, and closed my eyes. But before I did so, I saw a little girl run past the foot of my bed. I thought it was his little niece but then I remembered I had locked our door. I didn't know what to think of because I was scared out of my wits.
The following night, I came home from work about 3 in the morning and was trying to get ready for bed. Now, our bathroom has no window, no vent for A/C but something was in there with me. It had gotten chilly and I felt a breeze. It seemed kind of funny because in Georgia, the weather is sometimes pretty humid at night and in the middle of the summer, the house is not cold.
A couple of months ago, I was upstairs doing my laundry. Now, to get into the attic, you'd have to go through the laundry room. I remember closing the laundry room after I took out the clothes and recalled the attic door was closed. It was only my husband and his brother home along with my baby and myself.
About 5-10 minutes folding my laundry, I heard the attic door close. It could not have been the wind because it was not windy. There wasn't any pressure at all! I went downstairs just to find out that I was in the house alone. My husband was in the garage with his brother and told me he hasn't been inside the house for a good hour.
I can't count how many times I've has "visits" but just a couple of nights ago, after bathing my 6 month old baby, I saw something in my mother-in-laws closet. I always give my baby a bath in her restroom because it has a lot more space. While trying to get him ready for bed, I looked into the bathroom to see if I had left anything in there. While my eyes passed her closet, I saw what looked like a man standing in the doorway. It wasn't looking at me, it was sort of standing on his side and this was only a split second sighting. While running downstairs, I thought it'd been my father-in-law because he man looked like him.
I ran to my mother-in-law and told her what I saw. She then called her sister-in-law because her sis-n-law had some sort of "special" connections with the "other side". She then told me that I will be a Shaman and will need to practice its arts. I have the ability to spiritually travel to the other side and seek comfort for those who need it.
I have trouble believing this because I have never in my life believed in such ridiculous things but then again, why do I sometimes see the supernatural? I always question myself the same question over and over again. Honestly, I am very afraid but was told to not be. The things I see are there to help me, to help me guide others who are in need. "They" just want to let me know that I will have to get used to them sooner or later. I don't think I'd ever not be scared.
If you would like to now more about my religion, try looking for "Hmong Religion" online and researching a little bit more.
