Do you ever get the feeling you are being watched? I do. But is it just my mind playing tricks on me or is it something else?
It started small at first, tiny little occurrences that were easily explained away but just lately it has become much more noticeable. I get a great sense that something is watching me, it doesn't necessarily feel good or bad and I have now got to the point that it doesn't seem to shock me, I just try to ignore it. I have even go to the point of talking to whatever it is. Now don't get me wrong, if something did appear in front of me I would need to get a clean pair of trousers. I'm just not shocked by the feeling of something being there.
One of my greatest fears, I say greatest lightly but one of my fears is having the shower curtains closed while I am in the bathroom using the toilet, usually at night with low light. I imagine a head popping around the corner or maybe a hand pressing up against the curtain itself. It makes my skin crawl just thinking about it but this could be from watching too many scary films. The thing is, I don't find scary films that scary, I don't think I ever have. The only film that ever really bothered me was the Sixth sense film with Bruce Willis. After watching that film I had to sleep with the light on and I would constantly feel something sit on the edge of my bed. I don't know why that film affected me so much, it just did, I wasn't a kid either, I was about 17 at the time, still young but not young enough to be spooked by scary stories.
like I said before, it started gently, liken it was easing me in, and to this day it's still growing. Lately, things have started to progress, the occurrences have become more noticeable. For example, one evening I was stood in the kitchen making a cup of coffee for myself and my girlfriend. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a head pop up from over the fridge, which is the first thing you can hide behind before coming into the kitchen. My girlfriend and I enjoy sneaking up on each other to make the other jump. I noticed the head and pretended I didn't, I thought she was just standing there waiting for me to look up, I wasn't going to give her the satisfaction. But you know when you know something is looking at you and you can't help but laugh. That's what I did but as I looked up, the head was gone. I walked into the living room to find my girlfriend sat on the sofa with her laptop and headphones on. It wasn't here. I felt something there. When I saw my girlfriend sat there, cold shivers went right up my body.
Now I don't know if it was my imagination, a ghost or some other kind of supernatural being. Maybe in time, I will find out, maybe I won't.
Another time I was stood in the bathroom at the top of the stairs, I was brushing my teeth and I noticed something walking in the hallway at the bottom of the stairs, I turned my head to look and noticed something quickly dart around the corner. I thought I was just seeing things so I turned away slightly and then I happened again. It did this about 3 or 4 times.
I read something about shadow figures that only appear in the corner of your vision so you don't know if you are seeing them or not, maybe this is what I'm experiencing.
It doesn't seem to feel threatening right now, but I don't know as time goes on and if it seems to get stronger if it will start to become more menacing. I hope that it doesn't, I can deal with partially seeing things but I don't know if I could deal with the poltergeist activity.
I have dreams sometimes that I am stuck in a haunted house, I am filled with so much fear and dread and I can't move. Violent ghosts are smashing things and throwing things around and when I wake up I still feel the terror and I'm usually covered in sweat.
One thing I might add though is I have a young teenage daughter with lots of problems and there have been stories of girls and poltergeists, I hope we don't have something like that and my family because the next real-life poltergeist movie.
Have you ever had any experiences like this?
