If you've read my other recent story, then you know, but for others who haven't just so you can get a better picture of me and what's going on, I'm Alex, a 17 year old female who is an Empath, and a Psychic Medium.
This past Saturday I went over to a friend's house for the first time. We were celebrating my birthday (although it was a day after, not the day of) with 2 other girls. I had never been to her house before, and the three of them knew that I am an Empath, a Psychic, and a beginning Medium. I warned them when I arrived at the house that in the past year, every time I slept someplace I hadn't been before, I had a dream about ghosts. It hadn't happened in about a month, but then again, I hadn't slept someplace strange in that amount of time, so I was unsure of what would happen. They understood and we went out and partied.
That evening we decided to sleep in my friend's home theater, a small room created down in her basement. I was alright with it, not scared or even thinking about ghostly encounters until I saw that the rest of the area around the one room that was their home theater was under construction and renovation by her father. It worried me a little. The house was old (although I didn't know how old) and I knew that ghosts are often territorial and/or curious. So they can get angry and/or mischievous when you change a part of the house (by renovating, constructing something and even painting). So I warned my friends that the probability of me having at least a dream about a ghost was heightened. One of them began to be a little frightened but I calmed her down, said that nothing bad would happen to her. I knew bad things could happen, because ghosts can get violent and physical, but it doesn't happen often and I was very protective of my friends. I was the only one in the group that had experiences with ghosts, and psychic experiences. I wanted to protect them. I was going to protect them. I felt much more brave, and I felt stronger.
That evening we fell asleep to watching movie around 3 in the morning. I woke up once around 5 to the DVD menu being played over and over again. My friend turned it off and I fell right back asleep.
Then, around 10:50 am, my friend woke me up. I had asked her to wake me and one of my friends up so we could go work on a project. But I was really tired and so I told her instead of leaving to go work on the project I would do it for the two of us. It was only a poster. So, my friend whose house we were at left to go help her dad at Lowe's. Another friend had left to baby-sit. So it was just me and the scared friend asleep in her home theater.
At first I fell right back asleep. I was exhausted, and slept for about 30 more minutes before I woke up. I felt an odd feeling. Like I needed to be protected. I wasn't scared, just unsure. I thought maybe I just felt uncomfortable being there with my friend and without the friend whose house we were at. But I began to feel like I was in danger, and so was my scared friend. So I pictured a white light around myself. But being protective of my friend, I moved the white light to be around both of us. I felt things getting worse, for no reason. I started to say the Lord's Prayer and my friend said "Alex?" and I realized she was awake! I told her I was probably mumbling in my sleep. I didn't want to freak her out. But after that I couldn't sleep. So my eyes wandered around the room when suddenly I saw this shadow of a girl run past the wall next to me. I tried to tell myself I was imagining it. But a few seconds later a shadow of a man was standing in the corner, diagonal from me and near my friend's feet. Then, moments later he was looming over me. I didn't feel scared to my surprise. Still I felt this need to protect my friend. So I looked to her and looked back, sitting up and this shadow was still there. So I told my friend, frankly, not to freak out. Then I waited a few seconds before telling it to go away, loudly and bravely. It disappeared.
I wasn't sure what this thing was. In my dreams about ghosts, they're always black and shadow like as well, and looming over me, which I thought was odd. I have done some research but I still don't know what it was. Was it a ghost? Or maybe a shadow person? Was it trying to get help from me?
Also, last night (Tuesday) I couldn't sleep. Every time I fell asleep I was shaken awake like I had just had a night mare, but I had only just begun to fall asleep when it would happen. It happened every time. I wondered maybe if something was trying to speak with me (shaking me awake to do so), because earlier that night my ears popped out of the blue and I thought I heard that when ears ring or pop, a ghost is trying to contact you.
Thanks for your help!
