I'm not yet 18 and I joined this web-site to be able to learn more about myself because I feel that things are getting weirder and weirder with time. I've had multiple paranormal experiences even for my age, the first one I remember having is when I was 3 (maybe 4) years old and even though I was young, I remember it very clearly. I was in my room, which had sliding doors and the doors would slam against the wall over and over again and it would last forever! I got really frustrated, I had no fear of it, but I was exhausted and couldn't sleep, so my first reaction was to call my dad. I kept calling for a minute or so, but he wouldn't come so I started screaming and crying and I kept screaming louder and louder. The door stopped slamming, and a few minutes later, my dad came in. I explained that the girl in my closet would not stop banging the closet door tonight (though, I do not remember seeing a girl, but I knew it was a girl). He walked up slowly to the closet, and opened it; he took one of the boxes that was in the closet, he placed it perpendicular to the door so that it would not fully close, kissed me goodnight and left. Not long after he left, I was starting to fall back asleep and the door reopened and slammed on the box over and over again, as soon as I heard it I screamed again, my dad came back, had a look at the door then without saying anything picked me up and brought me with him to my mom's room where I slept the night. We moved to another house when I was 5. This year, my grandmother told me they had tried to cleanse that house many times because things were moving around the house, but the most active room of the house was mine and that the closet door actually did move. I was relieved to hear that! It proved to me that I wasn't crazy for that one.
My other experience I had was a couple of years after, I was 10. I'm not sure if it was paranormal or not. My dog had passed away 2 months earlier from cancer and I had been waking up at 3:23 4 or 5 times per week. We had adopted 2 other dogs, same breed, same color and same gender. One night, I woke up hearing the sound of claws against a hard floor, it was 3:40, so the first thought that ran in my head was that my mom had forgot to put the dogs in their cages. So I waited and try to fall back asleep that anyways I was supposed to be sleeping and that it was her problem if she forgot to put them in their cages, but then I felt there was a chance that the dog would do a mess, so I got up. The dog wasn't far, it was sitting a couple of feet away from my door and it was staring at me, then I realized it seemed bigger and a bit different than the 2 ones we had, but I thought it was because it was dark. I suddenly felt super heavy, so I turned away and went to sleep. The next morning, I went to see my mom to ask if the dog had made a mess or something, but she asked me why and told me the dogs were in their cages and that the door was close. She then told me I had made a dream. I only thought of it later in the day, that the dog I saw looked exactly like my last dog.
After that experience we moved again, but this time it was because of my parent's divorce. So we moved into my grandparent's house on my mom's side because we wanted to be able to keep the dog. That's when I started having more and more experiences. Every so often I would hear footsteps, or see very faint shadows that would not stay more than a second or two, but none of those experiences were what I would consider important or more special. They most often occurred when people weren't there, when they were in another room or when they were sleeping. So one late evening, I was cleaning the dishes, it was winter so it was sun was down very early. So, everyone was occupied and I was left alone in the kitchen. I heard someone coming, but I didn't care at all and continued doing the dishes, it soon came very close to me and place a hand on my shoulder, so I started talking because I thought it was my mom but when I lifted my head, I saw no reflection in the window, only me no one else, when I turned around I was surprised to see there was no one, but weirdly I did not feel stupid for talking alone which usually I feel stupid when I talk and realize there is no one.
Once again we moved, this time because we had found a good deal on a big enough house to live all together in and it has a yard big enough for the dog. This is the place where I currently live and it's here where I had the most experiences so far, and the weirdest thing had happened. I started to get interested in paranormal in a different way. When I was small I wanted to be friends with those who had passed away and I wanted to learn about their past. In the last 4 years, I have been interested in the paranormal, as in the way I want to know more about it, but I don't want to have any experiences because I am scared of being scared or finding something stronger than me, and weirdly I keep having more and more experiences, some that take me off guard and scare me. Since I live here, I hear knocking on the wall, I see shadows, I see dark smaller shadows (about 2 to 4 foot tall), lights flickering (only when I'm using the webcam with someone) and I also hear whispers and footsteps, I've seen a pencil move and a full body apparition and the radio turned off twice. Those that freak me out more are the shadows, I sometimes see them with my own eyes, but I realized that sometimes they also appear on the camera. The full body apparition was the one of a man. I was alone at home and it was 8 am, the worst part, was that I was changing, and the door of my room was opened. When I saw it I screamed and grasped, I was freaking out. I saw it go into my mom's room, so I called my dog and texted one of my friends to tell her I saw a man in my house, then went into my mom's room with my dog. There was absolutely no one. If it would of had been someone it would of had been stuck there, but the room was empty, so I went back to my room and sat on my bed to think it through and spoke out loud. I asked them to please leave or if they stayed, to please try to understand that I need my own space and that I'm tired of seeing them here. The next weeks were pretty calm. I've seen nothing, only yesterday I heard very clear and loud footsteps. Besides that, I can also know some things about 5 minutes before they occur. I've been able to tell my friends result at school in advance, before she took the test. I just know it, it's not a vision, it's not a dream or déjà vu, it's something I know. It doesn't occur more than once or twice a week, I can tell when someone is about to get injured, but I can't tell who, I just get that weird feeling. I think everyone can have those feelings, but mine are very rarely wrong, which is also getting awkward.
If someone could please answer this; I want to know what's happening! Am I turning nuts or what? Okay, the last weeks have been calm, but I have the feeling it's going to start again pretty soon. I thought about it and made a bit of research myself in the last years. I know it can't be a demon or it would of had tried to hurt me a while ago. I do not think it is the house that is haunted, because everywhere I go I can see shadows or hear things, though it's mostly in my house that it happens. I don't think there is only one thing and I think it is not the same spirit/ghost/or whatever you want to call it that keeps coming to see me. Sometimes I have the feeling it's a woman, but I also saw a man and they have very different ways of showing themselves. I don't usually tell people, or if I do I try to make it very short and simple. My family doesn't know anything except for the closet one. My mom doesn't really believes in spirits, she thinks there is a reasonable explanation for everything, but my grandmother is the exact opposite, she does believe in ghosts and had many experiences herself. She says she got part of her mom's "gift" (she was a medium who could sometimes tell the future and interact with spirits). I only have one friend who knows, but she doesn't seem to understand it the way I want her to understand it. She freaks out at every little thing and tells me to tell my parents, which I am not willing to do right now.
I thought of posting this on the similar web-site, but I think it might also fit here. I'm not sure if it's a paranormal thing or if it's a psychic thing. The only thing I know is that I need to know more because it's been starting to freak me out a bit.
I will try to come and read every comment
