I have two experiences that I want to share. I had filed
them both under the 'strange dreams' section of my memory,
but after reading some similar stories, I'm beginning to
think that they were paranormal experiences.
The first one was when I was in junior high school.
My older sister and I shared a room. We both woke up in the
middle of the night because our bedroom door was shaking in
its frame. It wasn't like the doorknob was rattling, but
more like the door was too small for the frame and not
attached to the hinges. There was also bright light coming
in from the bottom of the door. The light was not so
unusual because that was the usual brightness caused when
the hall light was on and our door was closed. Maybe it
seemed brighter because of the violent shaking of the door.
I don't remember hearing anything at all, except my sister
telling me to check it out. Here's what makes me think it
was a dream.
I am a big wimp, but yet I got right out of
bed and opened the door. Sure enough, there was nothing
there but the hall light was on and the door was attached
to the hinges like it should have been. I told my sister it
was nothing and we both went back to bed. The weird thing
is that the next morning she asked me about it. She asked
if it really happened and I said that it did. We recounted
to each other the same exact story. So, maybe we had the
The second experience happened when I was about 18. I was
house-sitting for my mom's friend. My friend was staying
with me, because I am a big wimp and there was a pool. We
were sleeping in the same room at first. She was using the
bed and I was in a sleeping bag on the floor. I couldn't
get to sleep though because she was snoring so loud. I
don't recall if this was the first night we were staying
there or not.
Anyway, I don't know what time it was when I
changed rooms but I found my way to a smaller bedroom with
nothing but a futon and a couple of posters on the wall. I
think it may have been early morning when I moved rooms
because I think it was starting to get light outside when I
finally went to sleep. The next thing that I remember was
that I couldn't move. It didn't feel like I woke up, but I
opened my eyes in a panic when I realized that I couldn't
get up. I didn't feel any direct contact with anything that
could have been holding me down, but it felt like someone
was blowing on my face. It felt very cold and seemed to
move continually from my forehead to my chin, cheeks, and
nose. I scanned the room but did not see anything. I think
that I just closed my eyes and it stopped. I don't recall
if I fell back asleep or not.
I don't know of any other strange occurrences in either of
these locations and I'm not haunted everywhere I go, so I
don't really know what to think.
