Ghosts

Until a few weeks ago, I couldn’t claim I’ve had experiences with ghosts. In fact, I still may not can claim that. However, here’s the story.

I was home during the middle of the day. It was a cool, clear and sunny day, so after my dog finished her lunch, I let her out in the back yard. With a few spare minutes, I laid down on the couch for a short nap. It was a light sleep, waking up every few minutes, then dozing off again. About ten minutes into the nap, during one of the halfway awake moments, there was a figure standing with their back towards the couch, as if they were about to sit down where I was resting. I remember the figure being a pasty white, yet a bit translucent. Without regard to my occupation of the couch, the figure sat down right around where my chest was. Immediately I felt a tingling sensation throughout my whole body and was instantly fully awake. Was it a ghost or just my imagination? I’m more sure that it was all in my head, in a halfway dreamy state of slumber. But the house I live in does have an interesting history. It was built in 1957 but was empty for many years until more recently when it was remodeled, then sold (to me). And I’ve been told someone died inside the house. So this couch experience was strange, but not scary. Had it been dark outside when this happened, I probably wouldn’t have stayed at the house that night, though.

Do you have any experiences like this? Feel free to share or comment on mine!

  1. I will haunt you when you’re awake by sitting on you. I will haunt you in your sleep like Freddy Kruger. Pretty much, either way, I win.
