I Believe in Ghosts
I believe in ghosts because I thought I saw one when I was living in my grandpa’s house. It was 2005 when I had this experience. One night I went into the kitchen to get a drink because I was really thirsty. When I was heading back to my room, I saw an eerie small glowing white ball floating about two feet from the ceiling. It stayed floating for about two seconds, then it went through the ceiling and disappeared! I knew my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me because I was fully awake and aware at the time. It really freaked me out, and I quickly ran back to my room and pretended that I never saw that eerie ball. I didn’t tell my family because I didn’t think that they would believe me, so I kept it a secret. I know that a ghost can be a glowing ball of spiritual energy, a dark shadow, or a full body apperision. It was truly a frightening experience.
A few weeks later I had another experience. One calm hot night, I was having a hard time sleeping due to the warm air in my room. So I opened my window and went to the kitchen to drink cold water. On my way back, I heard a faint noise that sounded like a voice. I thought I was hearing things so I ignored it. Then I heard it again, but this time it was a voice and it came from the living room. It was a scary feeling. I looked all around in the room but there was no one there. I felt the hairs on the back of my neck rise. My heart was pounding with fear. I was terrified and shocked, so I went to my room and didn’t sleep that night.
I didn’t believe in ghost before but from the experiences I’ve had I now believe. Let me ask you this, have you ever seen or heard something that you couldn’t explain? Have you ever heard someone in a place where no one was around but you, I sure have. I will never forget what I saw and all the experiences I had with the paranormal. To this day I still believe in these scary spiritual beings. Now I am no longer afraid of ghosts because they used to be people and I think of them as people and not just scary beings.
