Ok...here's some more.
My Aunt N (different from the other one I already talked about) must be drawn to haunted houses or something. Whenever I heard her stories, even though she's a highly credible woman, I always wanted to discount it because it sounded too freaky. Since that thing w/my dd talking to my dead grandma though, now I know
One experience of hers, this was a long time ago: She was living in an an old house with a room mate. She always felt a presence in the house but hadn't actually seen anything. One morning she woke up and a woman (old fashioned looking w/a bun) was leaning over her bed staring at her!
: I mean like 2 feet from her face! The weird part is this didn't scare my Aunt N. She says that there was nothing scary about it, she felt safe, it was just a little weird.
Another thing that happened to her and my Aunt that I mentioned earlier. Aunt N was looking for a new place to live. They showed up to the place (old house) early, before the realtor got there. They heard one of those old parlor pianos playing away inside. It was really loud. They thought, oh well someone must be here. So they're knocking away but no one would answer the door. The music eventually stopped. The realtor arrived. They told him about the piano and he assured them no one was there and the place was empty. The went in, there was no piano to be seen. The realtor told them it used to be a prostitute type parlor. That was the exact kind of music they'd heard. She ended up NOT living there!
Another time she was living in an apartment by herself. She always felt a certain presence. It didn't feel negative necessarily (and obviously by now she was used to "other beings" hanging around) but she felt it was invading her space a bit. One night she was in bed and she felt someone sit down on the end of her bed. She looked over and no one was there but there was an indentation as if someone was sitting there. She was a little creeped.
Then later she was taking a shower and distinctly felt like someone was watching her. It wasn't like she felt threatened or anything, she was just getting sick of this constant uninvited presence. As she tells it, she, right there in the shower, yelled out "Ok, I've had it! Look, I understand this is your place too and I don't care if you're here, but you've GOT to leave me alone. I'll mind my own business, you mind yours!" Apparently she never had a problem again. She lives somewhere else now. Don't know if it's ghost free or not. I'll have to ask her...
