When I was twenty one years old, my new husband's family offered to sell us a house that had been in his family for generations at an incredibly cheap price. They had a difficult time keeping it rented and did not want to hassle with it anymore. We jumped at the opportunity and moved in almost immediately. It was only a matter of hours before strange things began to happen. It did not take me long to decide there was something or someone else other than us in that house. Almost every night we would hear something coming up the staircase. The steps were old so you could hear every creak. Nick, my husband, would jump up out of bed whenever he heard it to go make sure that someone hadn't broken in. It would always end the same -- no one was there. The ghost appeared to get braver as time went on. We could hear the steps eventually come down the hall; hey were getting a little closer to our bedroom door with each visit. Finally, the night came that we had both been dreading. Nick was sound asleep, exhausted from working hours of overtime. I heard the steps dare to pass the doorway of our bedroom and then, I heard steps enter our room. I felt slightly aware of something or someone approach the side of the bed I had my back turned to, but I was afraid to look. I just kept my face in Nick's chest and closed my eyes tightly. I felt as though there was someone right behind me, right behind my head just staring at me. I knew one thing for sure; I was not going to turn around to check. I just wanted to fall back to sleep as soon as possible. My hand searched under the covers for Nick's hand. I very softly and quietly moved my hand beneath his big palm. I did not want to disturb him; I just knew it would make me feel better if his hand was lying on top of mine. My back felt ice cold. I tried to bring the covers up tighter around my neck and back. That's when I felt it. Something moved briefly on the bed behind me. I did not acknowledge it. I forced myself to stay still as if I were still asleep. I felt that if I suddenly reacted, I would see something horrible, so I did not turn around, I did not move. That seemed to upset whatever was behind me. I felt the bed move again, but just ever so slightly. I felt that whatever was behind me was so close to me it was almost touching my hair. I had the feeling on my scalp similar to when you have static electricity in your hair. I was sure it must almost be standing on end. I rubbed Nick's palm with the back of my hand. I think I was actually trying to wake him, but trying to do it quietly, so whatever was behind me would not notice. It didn't work. Nick just grunted a moment and then took another deep breath, he was still sound asleep. I felt another movement on the bed directly behind me again. I actually felt the blanket I had wrapped so tightly around me tug on me a bit as if someone had laid some weight on it behind me, I was sure that something was trying to get even closer to me. Suddenly I felt air blow on my cheek. It was just the same as if someone had breathed on me, except it was a lot colder, ice cold. I tried rubbing Nick's hand again only I did it more aggressively this time. He moaned a little and turned to face me laying his arm across my side. That made me feel a little better. If there was someone or something directly behind me he would have struck them with his hand when he put his arm around me. I no sooner had the thought when Nick's arm went flying off of me and back towards him. It was as if someone had picked up his arm and flung it off of me. At that same exact moment, I felt a very strong tug on my hair, and heard a whisper in my ear. "Get out of my room," the words struck me like a knife in my stomach. It was a very raspy mean voice. I woke Nick instantly. Of course, was no one there. Many things happened in that house. We only lived there for thirty six days -- thirty six days of pure mental hell. That was when I started to believe in ghosts and spirit hauntings. It forever changed how I view things. I wrote a book about the whole experience, The Lennox Haunting.

    • Reincarnation - My views on what it is all about
    • Hello everyone, My experiences and study through out my life have led me to form in my mind what Reincarnation is all about, or what this life is all about. It is my belief that we all live multiple lives and we are each a "shard" or part of what I call a "Over-Soul". We each enter the Life/Death existence cycle and live out a life with certain goals and experiences that are planned out for us to experience, then when the body dies the "Shard" returns to the Over-Soul and we get absorbed back into that existence. A review of the life happens, and if we have learned what we were sent here to learn then we are done. That is the goal of every Over-Soul to obtain this knowledge what ever that...

    • EVPs on a CD...possible?
    • Hi Ron, I'll take a listen to the song other than on my CD, but what I think I'm hearing is specifically addressed to me, it's their favorite line "Happy Beach was never a good idea" (long story behind this). I'll see if I can snap a recording of that part of the song, I think these hecklers are trying to ruin my CD collection now.....wonderful Thanks, Brian

    • @misspaperwail My advise with dealing with this is as many have said have a very strong view of yourself first and a belief in a higher power. I too believe in God and follow the Christian faith. So my protections are a combination of many different approaches that I have found work for me. When I begin to "open up", I will stand in the middle of a room and invision a ray of pure golden light shining down on me. I then in my minds eye see that light engulfing me and extending away from me and say a prayer out loud. Usually my arms are outstretched while I am doing this. Those that have been with me and have seen me do this call this "Calling the Light of Protection and Healing". I...

    • Here are two more encounters that I have had: Back when I was in college and living off campus in apartments I had these two different encounters in two different apartments. 1st - I lived in a apartment building that had 5 floors and about 4-5 apartments per floor. The build was from the 30's and well maintained and had been most college apartments for years. Upper classmen and Grad Students mostly. I rented a three bedroom apartment with 4 others guys and myself. I had a shared bedroom with one guy, and there was another bedroom that had two guys sharing it, and one small bedroom with just one. Now on weekend three of the guys always went home, leaving myself and the guy that had...

    • A few things bother me: Like I stated, the alleged evidence Keith has provided publicly is nowhere near convincing. It's all too perfect, and we never see anything happen in real time. No, spirits never work the way we want, but if we're to believe that there are 20,000 audio and video files floating around, then if it's real, there has to be one clip of real time action. Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. I don't know. Every file on Youtube is worthless as far as evidence, and there are a lot of them. So if something compelling happened, I don't believe, in any way, that Keith would keep it private. He's jumping up and down to get exposure. iidoitforthetruth said they take a scientific...

    • omg..... A lot of what you just said, makes soooo much sense... I was doing a 2nd job, one of those home opportunities, and I loved every minute of it, but after 10 months, i realized that I was feeling burnt out, and over whelmed..... (OMG i have goosebumps reading your message.) I decided to give it a break, i deactivated all of my social media profiles. I realized that this 2nd job, was too demanding. I was constantly on my phone messaging people, posting, sharing, running private groups, making videos for my YouTube page, attending webminars, and much more. Every time we would sit down and watch a movie, i would spend most of the time on my phone; my son whose 12 told me "mom you need to...
