I'm still not sure if I believe in ghosts.. if what I experienced was supernatural in anyway, it may just have a logical explanation, but this is what happened to me and I am certain that its real.
One night when I was about 16, I woke up late in the morning, at around 2 or 3am. I'm still not sure what woke me up but I found myself wide awake with this horrible feeling of dread and fear. I was so scared and I didn't understand why. I felt smothered in my bed, like there was something really big surrounding my room. My heart pounded in my chest and I started to break out in a cold sweat. All of a sudden I felt something hit or slap my back really hard. Like a hand or something. It felt like something else was in the room looming over me and me being the absolute chicken that I am squeezed my eyes shut refusing to open them and see something that would haunt my dreams for the rest of my life. I started to feel something like cold finger tips run up and down the back of my neck. I was so scared! I started to pray for something, anything to protect me from whatever this thing was. I suddenly felt this warm feeling surround me and this feeling like nothing would ever harm me again, like when you’re really young and your mum gives you a great big hug and you feel so safe and warm. At peace I suppose you could say. It was only then that I slowly started to drift off into a dreamless sleep.
I believe that the feeling of safeness and warmth I had was from my grandmother who died when I was young. I think that when I prayed for protection she heard me and came to my aid. As for whatever that thing was, I haven't felt it or seen it since.
