When i was in my early teens, I had heard from friends about all those myths and stories about ghosts and the unknown. I didnt quite understand it all back then, and I sure didnt believe in it either. As far as I was concerned, if I couldn’t see it, it wasn’t real to me. That all changed when I hit my late teens and early twenties. My first encounter was with some friends of mine when I was in my late teens. They had convinced me to tag along with them to check out a local haunted house in our town. We knew the history of the abandoned farm house, had heard stories of ghosts, and other unexplained happenings that people had witnessed themselves. We wanted to check it out for ourselves. I didn’t think anything could or would happen to me, as I thought, if I couldn’t see it, it wouldn’t hurt me. I was about to find out that fearful night, I was wrong.Upon approaching the abandoned farm house, I had this creepy feeling overwhelm me. I felt cold chills I couldn’t explain and honestly i never felt before. As well, I felt we weren’t welcomed, and I wanted to leave. Being a teenager, I couldn’t tell my friends what I was feeling, so I kept it to myself and decided to face up what we were in for that night. As we walked on the property, towards the home with our flashlights, I felt we were being watched, but not by a person. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it at that moment, but I just knew something wasn’t right here. Once inside, you could feel the emptiness go right through you. Some of us complained about ‘cold chills’ in areas of the home, to our flashlights with new batteries giving out. A few of us even heard creepy noises upstairs that we couldn’t explain.
A friend and myself decided to be brave and check upstairs out. Supposedly from the history we knew, someone had died in one of the upstairs bedroom and their spirit was roaming the home. We decided to investigate if that rumor was true or not. As I had walked into the room, my friend and myself got very cold. We noticed that room was much colder than the rest of the home. Very odd for a summer night evening, we thought. Roaming around , we noticed a window overlooking the entire view of the farm and the road itself. Before I could even walk towards the window, my friend and I saw a shadowy figure appear at the window and disappear as fast as we saw it. We couldn’t explain what we had witnessed, but sure frightened both of us to death. As we left the upstairs, frightened enough, I was behind my friend walking down the flight of stairs. I felt this cold breath on my neck for a brief second. Was i losing my mind? Not saying a word to my friend, we paced fast downwards wanting to leave with the others. Before I got to the bottom of the stairs, I felt this force try to push me down, as if wanting to make me fall on my face.What would cause that? The chills went right through me. I freaked out so badly, I ran out the door and into the car, locking all the doors.My friends and myself, had enough of investigating this home. The dirt road where the farm sat was in the shape of a ‘U’, and only minutes away from the main road. As we were leaving, I swore I saw something or someone in that window where my friend and myself saw that shadowy figure. I wanted to go home, and now. We drove on the dirt road, driving away from the farm, not looking back. The main road was only minutes away, but we felt we were ‘trapped’. We finally realized after twenty minutes, we were circling that dirt deserted road where the farm sat. How was that possible? We knew we had disturbed the home, but didn’t think it would bother us from leaving its property. We circled that dark deserted dirt road for two grueling hours. I was literally so shaken up, I couldn’t talk about what happened for days. I never returned back to that farm ever again.Since then, i’ve experienced other paranormal activity. Playing with an orginal Ouija board with friends one night resulted in us opening the ‘Spirit World”. That ouija board went up over our heads and went flying across the room, making doors slam and the candles blow out. I’ve witnessed shadowy figures float past me and I couldn’t explain it. Two years ago, i started to hear ‘voices’ as well pick up ‘vibes’ from people. I have no explaination for that, but I have learned to put my skills to good use and wisely. As a person who has experienced with the paranormal and more, I do believe now. It has intrigued me more to pursue whats beyond the grave and what we can’t explain.
