This is a little different from anything else I've posted before and I hope you don't mind me sharing this with you all. I have decided to share this little experience I had that has been on my mind since happening a few days ago. First of all I need to say this isn't the first time something like this has happened to me and I'm sure it won't be the last. The house in which I live may well be the cause of it but I suspect that no matter where I live these experiences will follow me around.
I've been in this house for about 2 and half years now and it was only 2 weeks in that had my first experience there. I won't go into details about that one because quite frankly I don't think I can share that just yet, but I can start with my latest one. But before I can share my experience with you I need to tell you about a dream I had approximately two weeks ago.
I dreamt I was woken up in the early hours of the morning by someone calling my name from the other side of my bedroom door. I moved out of my bed and picked up my mobile phone to use it as a light (remember I'm still dreaming) and headed toward the door. I looked into the hallway expecting to find my brother - I was sure it was his voice I'd heard.
Of course, nobody was there! That's when I heard the voice again and so I stepped into the hall. (I know, stupid! In real life, I wouldn't!) That's when I felt something brush behind me. I jumped and turned again expecting to see my brother but nobody was there. Again I felt something brush behind me and I repeated the action. I wasn't alone and it made me extremely nervous (yes, I'm still dreaming).
That's when I heard someone calling my name again from the bathroom and so catching my breath I continued down the hallway until I reached the bathroom door. I pushed it open and looked inside to find it empty. Completely miffed by it, I stepped inside and stood in the centre of the room where I then turned full circle. As I moved around I caught a dark figure looking at me in the mirror and in a panic, I jumped and nearly dropped my phone which sent the flash off on the camera! It was at that moment that I woke up to a tapping sound in my room. I can't be sure but I think it was coming from my dresser.
This is the first part of the story, as the second part, my experience, happened a few days ago. It was in the morning and I'd just got out of the bathroom when my brother called out to say that he was taking my nephew to the park. It was only he and I in the house, apart from my nephew and when I heard the door close behind him I knew that I was in the house alone.
It was about five minutes after he'd left that I heard his voice call my name from the other side of my bedroom door. He's voice made me jump, and I actually called out to him, to say so, seeing as I thought I was alone. Being only half dressed I asked him to wait and put a towel round me and then opened the door fully expecting to see him there.
You can imagine how I felt then, when I found the hallway empty! I was so sure my brother was there that I called out to him but he didn't answer me. After a few minutes of freaking out I sat and thought about it and I remembered my dream. Is it a coincidence or something more?
I've heard someone calling my name before this, a few times at my mums when I was living there and once when I was travelling in New Zealand, a few years ago. My experience in New Zealand happened whilst in the bathroom, where I saw a black figure standing behind me.
So that's my latest experience and I'm still feeling a bit spooked by it! If anyone would like to elaborate on these experiences please do, I'm counting on you to calm my nerves!
