I've had odd experiences from childhood which, until recently, I've disregarded. My earliest memory is I've my great grandma. I can picture the vision perfectly. It's my mom leading me into my great-grandma's apartment with a fish tank to the right, kitchen also to the right, and my great-grandma sitting in front of the window in her chair. I've told this to my family many times and everytime I recite this memory, they tell me, "that's impossible, she dies before you were born." It's not possible for me to have been in my great-grandma's because of this. But the memory is so vivid.
Further, I remember waking up as a child while I was sleeping and I couldn't move. All I could do is lay in bed and try to scream, but no sound would come out. I also have a memory of waking up to people dancing around my bed. I wasn't frightened. I just closed my eyes and went back to sleep.
Also, everytime I drive by a street light by my house it turns off. I've even turned my headlights off to make sure the sensor doesn't detect my headlights and mistake it for daylight. I also just went down to the kitchen and the lights flickered. Whenever I get my haircut, there's a light that flickers above the chair... There is also a light in one of my philosophy classes that flickers above my seat.
Sorry if this is a mess but there have just been so many experiences, it's hard to organize it all.
Lastly, about a month and a half ago I was walking up stairs one night and there weren't any lights on. There was just a faint glow from outside. I got to the top of the stairs and saw a figure about the height of my 3 year old Siberian Husky sitting in the middle of the landing at the top of the stairs. I assumed it was my dog. I went to my room not thinking much about it and I opened the door to see my dog laying on my bed. The figure wasn't my dog. I know I saw something because I got scared by the sudden presence of something in front of me. I also walked around the figure.
Is someone able to make something of all of this?
I don't want to sound crazy... But I went to a catholic school my whole childhood and on Ash Wednesday when the priest would place the ashes on my four head I would very odd afterwards as if I were una complete daze and not aware of my surroundings. Is this common!?
