I used to be taking part in exterior on my own and a truck stored driving down the streets.I received uncomfortable and began to stroll dwelling,they adopted,I ended,they stopped,I ran,they drove sooner.I began sprinting dwelling and after I got here close to different folks they rotated and drove away.After I arrived dwelling I advised my mother and pa.No physique believed me.It’s been 5 years and I’m nonetheless shocked
I at all times put my keys in the very same spot after I get dwelling from work; it doesn't matter what, they at all times go within the dish in my front room. Sooner or later final August I had been dwelling from work for a number of hours and was cooking dinner when the considered “the place are your keys” for caught in my head. I appeared across the nook, positive I used to be going to see my keys within the dish, however there have been no keys. I appeared across the surrounding space and expanded my search to my purse, jacket, bed room solely to show up empty. I drove dwelling from work and let myself in with my keys, I used to be dwelling alone and my roommates had been out of city for a number of days at that time, so I knew I had them and I knew nobody would have moved them. I flipped my home the other way up, trying to find about 4 hours earlier than I half heartedly shook my heaviest winter coat hanging at the back of my closet… I discovered them zipped up within the inside pocket of that coat I hadn’t worn since mid-February on the newest.
Everybody at all times brushes off the story as I should have moved them and forgot about it, however that is mindless to me. I've completely no clue how they received there and I actually solely have 4 attainable explanations: paranormal exercise, glitch within the matrix, I blacked out and moved them for no matter cause, or there was somebody in my home and that was the one factor they did.
Shari Botwin, LCSW and creator of Thriving After Trauma: Tales of Residing and Therapeutic, defined to Bored Panda that when unlucky issues happen, attempting to manage what occurs subsequent will lead to increased ranges of anger, nervousness, and disconnection from the lives we live within the current. “Specializing in the issues we are able to management alleviates among the concern. Change is part of life. It's in acknowledging this incontrovertible fact that we are able to stay a more healthy, much less hectic life from everyday,” she stated.
When requested how these unpredictable conditions or accidents impression us, Botwin advised us they go away us feeling flustered, hypervigilant, panic-stricken, and harassed. “From the second one thing scary occurs, our lives have modified without end. I've met purchasers who received in horrible automobile accidents after which prevented driving for weeks. I've met different purchasers who misplaced a member of the family or cherished one abruptly. For months and generally years to observe, these purchasers have developed extreme despair, panic dysfunction and have turn into hooked on a wide range of substances,” she revealed.
After I was about 12 or 13 I awoke in the course of the evening and smelled my fathers cologne, thought it was just a little odd since he lived about an hour away however was to drained to care. Went again to sleep, awoke the following morning and for some cause my mom didn’t wake me up for college. My father had handed away the evening earlier than. By no means advised anybody for years about that evening, however across the age of 23 I advised my mother she was glad to know that she wasn’t loopy, that very same evening she received startled awake, and the canine was staring on the door wagging his tail. Virtually like he was saying good bye earlier than absolutely leaving.
There was one second that can stick to me without end that I get blended reactions to after I inform the story.
Let me begin with including some context: I used to be 20 on the time, and was serving to my girlfriend transfer from Alabama to Los Angeles. As a result of she had all her belongings and her automobile, we determined to drive. At the moment, she had a suspended license so I used to be the one who was pressured to drive the entire method. As a result of I didn’t need to get any dashing tickets, I introduced my radar detector from dwelling to take with us on the drive.
Now it was the second day of our journey, and we had just lately crossed into New Mexico. On the time it was already effectively previous sundown, so most of my drive that day was spent on the I10 at evening. As a result of I used to be the one driver, I made the choice to cease each couple of hours at relaxation stops to make use of the restroom, stretch, or eat.
I bear in mind stopping that evening actually late at round 11 or 12 at a relaxation cease in Gage NM. From what I bear in mind, the remaining cease was actually the one factor off the exit, and there was nothing so far as a city or properties within the space for miles. The one factor there was a small space with many similar concrete buildings protecting picnic tables. They had been like concrete containers, three sided, with window cut-outs and a light-weight within the center. As we had been pulling in, the radar detector began going haywire, exhibiting codes for a number of totally different bands together with X, KA, and Laser, all of sudden.
I turned the radar detector off, not likely pondering a lot of it on the time, and pulled right into a picnic space close to the again. From what i remembered, I used to be going to eat a snack or one thing to tide me over, and as i used to be grabbing the meals from the center row, i heard a low rumble/squeak, because it somebody was rubbing their palm alongside the facet of the automobile. As I used to be grabbing some objects from a bag in my lap, my girlfriend on the time grabbed my arm with probably the most intense grip and concern and simply began saying “we gotta go, we gotta go” with growing panic.
I’ll always remember what I noticed tbh. In her facet mirror, there was a big, tough sillouette leaning towards the automobile simply previous the again door. Even from a look, I may inform that the determine needed to be a lot taller than the SUV, because it appeared a bit hunched over. Seeing this, I instantly began to panic, as I used to be undecided if this was an individual, animal, or no matter. As I used to be fumbling for the keys within the cup holder, I glanced in my facet mirror and say the identical precise determine, immobile towards the facet of the automobile. A couple of seconds later I began the automobile and punched it out of there. The place our automobile was parked, there was nothing seen from the sunshine coming from the picnic awning.
I’m not an enormous believer in paranormal stuff, however this was an expertise that I might 100% name my solely actual paranormal encounter. The dimensions of no matter it was was undoubtedly not human, and though it was considerably human, the quantity of hair it had on its head made it arduous to inform what it truly appeared like. A pal that I met later in faculty from New Mexico who had lived on a reservation as soon as steered that it may have been a wendigo, or another native fork lore beast. I nonetheless don’t know in any respect what it was for positive, however I nonetheless sometimes have nightmares about that evening.
I used to be 6 and bear in mind taking part in in my room and my grandpa walks in and talks to me for a couple of minutes. After a bit he will get up and tells me to “be a very good lady for mother”, kisses me on the brow, and walks out. Mother is available in about 5 minutes later hysterical and advised me my grandpa had died in a single day and we needed to go away to go be with the household two states over the place he lived.
“The despair and anger and concern within the aftermath of one thing unhealthy occurring leaves many individuals feeling caught and remoted.” Nonetheless, Botwin talked about that generally she meets people who turn into empowered by the occasion that occurred. For instance, a number of of them had been recognized with life-threatening sicknesses. “Quite than succumb to the concern and heartache, a few of these purchasers select to face different fears or stay extra within the second. They flip the concern and switch it into motion that leads to them dwelling fuller, happier lives.”
I stay alone and (on the time) had 2 cats. I've a type of galaxy projection lights. The sort that principally initiatives one thing onto your ceiling.
It has an IR or bluetooth connection as a result of it makes use of a distant to vary the colours and settings on it. It additionally has a speaker on it for some cause to let you realize if the distant is linked.
One evening I had it turned off and sitting on my chair subsequent to my mattress. I used to be in a lifeless sleep after I heard the voice toggling on and off, saying “bluetooth disconnected” That was the preliminary factor that scared me as a result of all I may hear was this disembodied voice. I discovered the supply shortly and realized I had thrown some garments over it so the IR port was blocked.
I fell again to sleep and was awoken once more, this time within the morning, by a MALE voice saying “Oh, Good day blaze!” It was coming from the path of the sunshine. Blaze is the identify of my cat. I laid nonetheless for a second, my coronary heart pounding. I rolled over and located my cat sitting on the opposite facet of my mattress. He WAS within the room. that scared the s**t out of me much more. I leapt away from bed and ran over to the factor and ripped it out of the wall.
I have never turned it on since. It has been sitting in a nook of my room with the plug indifferent. I am afraid to plug it again in.
I might blame hypnogogic hallucinations as a result of I've had them earlier than. Largely my mother's voice calling my identify. However the truth that my cat was in actual fact in my room, sitting principally in entrance of the sunshine TERRIFIED me. My cats haven't got collars/bells so It is not like I might have passively heard him in my sleep coming into my room after which imagined the voice. Not solely that, however he appeared freaked out too, like he had heard the voice as effectively. I don't know if it was that or he was simply reacting to me waking up.
I inspected the entire machine, searching for cameras and microphones. I used to be going to take it aside however I used to be too petrified of what I might discover.
Each god damned time I am having a tough time and cry my father is aware of. Regardless that we stay in several cities. He'll name me and inform me he knew I used to be crying. That he may hear me. He by no means takes a mistaken guess.
After I transfer in one other residence, he can describe to me how my new place seems to be like earlier than he sees it. Earlier than I even discuss it.
An out of physique expertise which I hope isn't repeated. Virtually cr*pped myself in concern. I used to be about 11 (perhaps youthful, arduous to recollect), and was sick at college, within the nurses station (referred to as a sick room at my faculty). Laying on the camp mattress, feeling simply typically bizarre, looking the very tall skinny home windows which are typical of Victorian colleges within the UK. Then I felt this unusual, I can solely name it a juke to the facet, however mentally and I noticed myself exterior the window, trying in, and on the similar time I used to be looking from the mattress by means of the window at myself.. floating exterior.
Apparently I yelled however I do not keep in mind that half. Then the nurse referred to as my mum to select me up and I went dwelling. I feel I slept the remainder of the day however I've no clear reminiscences of that half.
Residing by means of circumstances that become a tad scarier than fiction does beg the query, how is it greatest to react to them? Based on Botwin, once we discover ourselves in scary or life-threatening conditions, it's most essential that we attempt to keep calm. “The panic and urgency will set in instantly. You could really feel your coronary heart racing or an impending sense of doom and gloom.”
“It's pure for us to enter flight or combat mode once we really feel scared or in peril,” she added. “Take a minute whether it is applicable and assess the scenario you might be dealing with. Ask yourselves, ‘Is the concern I'm experiencing in my thoughts and physique matching the present scenario, or am I additionally reacting to different occasions that left me feeling traumatized or stranded up to now?'”
I've many tales as a result of I do cleansings for folks and dabble in pagan practices. All of them could be fairly wild, however the one most individuals have the toughest time understanding was witnessed on my own, mom, and sister. This occurred after I was 8, so 1998, small city in Alabama. My household had purchased this home on the lake. An actual haunted sh**fest, however hind sight, yah know? Actually the second day of transferring in, we skilled one thing. Additionally, this came about effectively earlier than any dive into the occult. My household was nondenominational Christian.
The home was 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, high and basement structure. All of us had our rooms on the highest flooring. My room and my mother and father’ room had been the furthest down the corridor. My sister was close to the start, proper throughout from the lavatory. So the corridor wasn't tremendous lengthy, however my sister who had determined to place like 14 to fifteen household portraits up on the partitions. They diverse in dimension and weight.
Now, our mother was in the lounge, which is what the corridor opened to. So, not far and definitely in sight of each other. Dad was gone, most likely work or one thing. I used to be in my room placing up posters. Nothing out of the extraordinary and it was mid-day.
When my sister completed placing the photographs up, she got here to get me to indicate me. She was happy with her work. We had been proper exterior my room speaking once we abruptly felt tremendous uneasy. The environment had modified. I did not perceive it on the time, however it was simply heavy and tough to suppose straight and breathe. For sure, our dialog halted. Even my mother felt it and stopped unpacking issues. She turned to take a look at us.
Impulsively, we felt and heard this worship of wind go from my mother and father’ room proper in entrance of us, down the corridor. All of these photos levitated off the wall and floated midair, resting in a horizontal place, parallel to the bottom. We screamed and ran to our mother. We had been hysterical as you possibly can think about.
Mother stated she was scared, however she needed to be momma bear and defend her infants. She stated firmly, “Cease! You might be scaring my youngsters!” She additionally advised it to depart as a result of it was not welcome right here.
Now this half, I did not see as a result of my face was buried into my mother's facet as I used to be crying. She stated, the photographs all floated down and got here to relaxation of their authentic spot. The ceiling appeared to only elevate and turn into distant abruptly. My sister noticed this too. I don't know how else to elucidate it. They solely ever described it this manner. However, the home turned regular and nonetheless once more like nothing had ever occurred.
My dad by no means believed it, regardless of all 3 of us experiencing that. Actually, that was probably the most tame factor we skilled in the home. 7 years of hell we endured there.
I stay in an especially outdated home. It creaks, it groans, the home is not utterly stage so generally unlatched doorways swing open “on their very own ” however often because physics. When you sat in my home on a windy day you'd swear to God it was haunted as a result of the window frames aren't nice and the wind screams by means of the gaps and rattles the glass as if it had been angered…
I've lived right here for a few years now. I do know each noise this home makes just like the again of my hand. I hardly discover it today. Which is why I discovered it odd that after I was brushing my enamel one evening a number of months in the past, I clearly heard two males's voices on the opposite facet of my lavatory door. Now, it is simply me, the canine, and my boyfriend right here. My boyfriend was throughout the corridor laying in mattress, and the canine had been with him. The voices I heard had been clear as day, two older gents.
“Ought to we inform ’em?”
“No… (vague mumbling)…”
“They in there?”
And the second voice didn't reply. I clearly yanked the lavatory door open and appeared to see who was in my hallway. However there was nobody there. I listened for a couple of minutes, pondering perhaps I heard the TV or one thing. I do not hear something. I name out and ask if my boyfriend stated something, he hollers again no from the place he is at within the bed room…
I'm going again to my nighttime routine, shut off the lavatory gentle, and now the hallway is darkish. I am gonna go to the bed room. I deliver my hand down from turning the sunshine change off, and my hand brushes up towards a chilly, rough-feeling hand. Like somebody with lots of calluses on their hand… I felt the thumb and palm distinctly. Like somebody had reached out to seize my hand however my motion kinda pulled out of the grasp earlier than they might truly seize my hand, if that is sensible.
The hand got here from behind me, from within the lavatory. I clearly know there is no one within the lavatory – I simply left the lavatory. After which I heard somebody mumble, from behind me. Not phrases precisely, simply form of a voice, like somebody grumbling below their breath. I jumped, turned the lavatory gentle again on, noticed nobody, left the sunshine on, and hauled [butt to the bedroom to tell my boyfriend what just happened because I was extremely freaked out. We checked out the entire house for an intruder. Found no sign of any. Everything was locked up as usual. Its never happened again. I have no idea what it was.
It was the night before my stepmom died (lost her battle to cancer). I was 22, was spending the night in bed with my 9 year old half-brother, cuddling him and telling him his mom was gonna be okay, it wasn’t gonna hurt any more. It’s about 3am at the time, and after a while he immediately sits upright in bed, smiles, says “I promise to be a good boy, mommy. I love you.”
Now my stepmom has been bedridden for the last month, so she’s not moving anywhere. But I swear on my life, and my little brother agrees with me, for a split second I saw her standing in the doorway wearing her big giant fur coat, just smiling at us and just looking relieved.
Brother went to sleep about 2 minutes later. I left to go into my dad and stepmom’s room to check on her to see my dad awake and telling me she’d died about half an hour ago.
I genuinely believe she “stopped by” on her way to the other side to check in on her two kids and make sure we’d be okay without her before she left.
The trauma specialist suggested that it is best to respond to your fear with words of reassurance and compassion. “Try and put the fear in perspective. Don't go through these feelings alone. Call a friend or talk to a family member. Process what you are feeling so you can sort through where the fear is coming from. Remind yourselves it is perfectly normal to feel afraid at times. It is an emotion that comes and goes, especially if you have experienced anything that left you feeling afraid,” Botwin advised.
I grew up in a haunted house. Nobody believes most of the s**t that happened to me. The top out of everything was nobody believes I was yanked outta my bed by my ankles in the middle of the night.
Back in the 90s I was on the track team in high school. After school we would run 5+ miles down the dirt road just on the outskirts of town because it was near the school. Around that time there had been reports of a man in a white pickup that tried to kidnap a couple of girls walking home from school in our town.
I wasn't feeling well one day and fell behind my team mates during one of our after school runs. I'm running alone along this quiet dirt road when a white pickup slows down next to me. The guy started up with some friendly chit chat about the weather and stuff. I was terrified but tried my best to appear calm and unsuspecting, all the while trying to plan my escape. He started asking me my name (I gave a fake one), age, where I lived, etc., and asked which way I was heading. I lied and told him I was going to head right at the turn up ahead and run a few more miles that way. The turn was actually the turn around point and then I would head back the way I came. He bid me a good day and drove on up ahead and turned right, where I told him I was heading. As soon as he disappeared around the corner, I turned around and ran faster than I ever had in my life. It was probably a good two miles back to the school. I kept looking behind me in case he came back that way in which case I would run into the woods and hide until he passed. Thankfully, he never did come back that way. I always wonder if he was waiting somewhere along that false route to approach me again.
I made it back and told my team mates about it and they didn't believe me! They didn't exactly call me a liar, but I could tell they thought I was making it up, maybe because we had been talking earlier about hearing it in the local news. I caught a couple of them exchanging looks, and others barely responded at all. The more I tried to convince them, the more I sounded like I was clinging to a lie. I just dropped it and resigned to be thought a liar. Still pisses me off that nobody believed me. My coach didn't even seem to believe me, he just kind of shrugged it off. I should have told the police about it, but I was so ruffled about not being believed that I just let the whole thing go.
About a year ago I was up watching movies late at night when I got hungry and went downstairs for a snack. My room is across from my daughter’s room and her door was open. As I was coming back upstairs I start turning left towards my room when I hear, clear as ever, “daddy can you close the door?” I turn around, don’t say much and just close it. Once I’m back in my room, I lie down to watch tv when it hits me…my daughter isn’t there. She’s spending the night at my parent’s. I get up and go to her room and sure enough, it’s empty. I woke up my wife and she thinks I’m crazy. Says I was probably tired and maybe it was the tv. I remember the voice so clear and coming in the direction of her room. It’s very possible that it was just my head playing games but, it definitely made me question a few things.
Unfortunately, when we decide to share these feelings with others, they sometimes seem hesitant to believe our experience. Whether they completely dismiss it as fantasy or think we’re lying, it can cause even greater discomfort to a person. Botwin explained that these situations happen because people tend to avoid any feelings that call up fear.
“Often, people will think things like, ‘There is no way that could have happened.’ People do not want to think that evil or disasters exist. Many distances themselves from these stories because they cannot digest the facts without going into a heightened state of panic.”
When I was 7 or 8 I just got done watching an episode of FBI's Most Wanted, then went out onto the front porch to blow some bubbles. As I was doing this, I saw a guy run out of the neighbor's house and hide behind some bushes with a gun. Then I realize I hear police sirens getting closer, before they suddenly stop before they get to my street. The guy looks over at me, makes the “shush” gesture, then runs across our lawn to the other neighbor's yard. To this day, and I swear to god this is true, I recognized his face as one of the guys on America's Most Wanted. Don't remember who, as far as I know the cops didn't find him, and no one in my family believes that it happened. I was frozen in fear/shock until he ran out of my sight, at which point I ran back inside and told my parents what I saw. I don't blame them for not believing me, but at the very least, I did see a wanted criminal run across our yard that day.
I grew up in a haunted house. My parents still live there to this day. Most traumatic experiences of my life. The one memory that tops the list is one I hate telling and rarely do. I would always wake up in the middle of the night and see s**t. From as young as I can remember until I moved out at 18. One night, I was about 6 maybe, woke up to see a man and woman, both dressed all in white, palest skin id ever seen, both standing at the foot of my bed looking out the window. The woman looked average height while the man reached the ceiling. I tried to convince myself it wasn't real, that I was dreaming until the man turned and look at me, his eyes were red. I turned sideways and covered my head, trying again to convince myself I was dreaming. After a few minutes I looked over the covers and the man was now standing at the side of my bed looking down at me. I remember nothing after. I talked to a specialist when I was older, thinking maybe I suffered from sleep paralysis due to these experiences but that was not the case. In every experience, I could move, and even ran out of my bedroom multiple times. Great times.
When I was around the ages 4 and 5 I would constantly see weird things in my bedroom at night. There would often be shadows on the wall talking to each other. It happened so often that I just took them to be normal occurrences. I saw all sorts of weird things at night but the shadows were one of the things I saw most often.
One night in particular I was dreaming about being in a large landscape of rolling green hills. Dotting the hills were odd buffalo type creatures. Something seemed off about them. They seemed unnatural, evil, and slightly monstrous. I started to get scared and woke up. Laying in my bed, I turned over and saw a horned shadow figure on the wall directly above my door. I tried to ignore it and flipped back over. I could feel it watching me and kept flipping back hoping it would be gone but it was always there. It was staring and smiling. After a while I couldn't take it anymore so I started yelling for my mom. As soon as she came in it vanished.
I have no good way to explain the things that I saw as a child. There seemed to often times be a blurring between my dreaming state and awakened state so I may have just had a very active and odd imagination to the point where I was truly hallucinating on a regular basis. When I was about six years old I had had enough of the crap so I remember opening the front door of our house and screaming “Get out!” to everything that was bothering me. Thats when my nights began to become more normal and I eventually never had any more problems with them.
But at times, people will embellish their stories because they are afraid others will invalidate or disbelieve what happened to them, Botwin argued. “Once someone has gone through a traumatic or life-changing event, he/she is more likely to believe another person who is reporting going through a scary experience,” she added.
My bathroom is weird. One time it illuminated from the out side as if someone put headlights up to the window. Empty lots behind me and next to me. No outside light source.
Same bathroom: I often find the bottom vanity drawer pulled completely out and on the floor. It would have to be lifted off the rollers
Same bathroom: cat was growling and freaking out and doing the stalk stance.
I was about 4 years old, visiting my great grandmother in NJ. She made a bed for me that sleep on in the living room. I fell asleep easily, but at some point I woke up and saw my great grandfather. He sat on the edge of my bed, smiled, patted my leg and got up. He put his jacket on and walked out the front door. He had been dead for longer than I had been alive and I had never met him. Adults the next morning all laughed at the silly kid with a big imagination. At grandmas request I described exactly what he was wearing: flannel shirt, suspenders, khaki pants… Generic description of any grandpa for the last 100 years. Everyone was still giggling at my cute story. But when I got up to show her how he snatched his jacket from the hook by the door and slung it on in one motion, I turned around smiling only to see her completely pale faced with tears running down her cheeks. Everyone got really quiet, and we never talked about it again. She knew I had seen him… No one else's opinion matters.
I was abducted into a house by my dads friend.
Long story short my dads friend was homeless and my dad was letting him sleep on the couch. I never thought anything about it but I would go to my room with towel on but I’d usually pass by him on the couch, this would become a much bigger deal in the future. This guy kept going on about his daughters and how he wanted me to meet them, they where a couple years older (14-16) but being a young kid I figured I’d just meet new friends. He lived with us for a couple months, until one day while walking to school he calls me from across the street. I lived probably 1.5 km from my house but a straight shot and a pretty busy road. He ended up luring me into the house saying his daughters lived there and they wanted to meet me. He literally gave me a tour of this house, but I kept asking him questions like where they were and who was their mom. He eluded that they where showering in the basement, instantly I felt a bad vibe and just sat on the couch in the living room, refusing to go into the basement. I started panicking because I could see the time and knew I was late for school. At this point he brings up that he thinks I’m coming on to him because I walk past him in my towel, I was so thrown by It just said no and told him I had to go. He asked for a hug and rub my thigh in a sexual way, I literally ran out the door. I was raised very old school and was so scared to get into trouble I literally went back to school, when I went home I told my parents not realizing how big of a situation it was and they called the police. I came to find out that wasn’t even his daughters house, he literally broke into a house on my way to school to lure me into.
Even though the police where involved and the guy literally left everything at parents and never came back years later my parents befriend his brother and eventually him again, and his brother kept denying that it ever happened and my parents started question it too. LMAO
If reading through these stories made you feel like you want to wrap yourself up in a warm blanket and never take another step through your front door, remember the wise phrase Forrest Gump told us, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.” And Botwin completely agrees with this line of thought.
“There are benefits to living an unpredictable life. If we always knew what was coming or could predict the future, we may not be able to appreciate the moment and live life to its fullest,” she concluded.
I think my friends and I almost got struck by lightning or some electrical phenomenon in Petawawa Ontario when I was between 5-7. It was torrential raining, thundering and very humid outside. I was ready to go in but my friends, two sisters who were my age and younger who lived across the street from me, were stuck outside – I believe their teenage brother had locked them out as a joke. I was standing across their lawn, debating going in or sitting with them on their stoop as the youngest sister was crying out of fear because of the thunder. Suddenly, a huge ball of blueish-white light came down from out of nowhere and seemed to strike the lawn between us. I remember it looked like it was spiralling or spinning, like a super bouncer. It seemed to bounce off the ground and then it disappeared. The little sister SCREAMED bloody murder at and they both dropped their umbrellas and were holding each other. I ran inside my own house. I remember still seeing the light when I closed my eyes and it haunted me for quite a while after.
Lightning or power line experts, I’d love to hear your thoughts. The lawn didn’t look damaged and my mom thinks it was my imagination.
Ostriches are not friendly. I used to run on this back road with my dogs and at the end of the road before I turned around to run back there was a pond. As I’d get closer I would see an Ostrich come into view with a little baby and they would watch us run by. One day I’m running and I feel something behind me. So I turn back and see this TRex looking Ostrich running after us, starting to close in on us. I had been running a lot at the time so I started hauling ass. My dogs thought this was a game but I had seen what Ostriches can do to people and I didn’t want any part of it. It’s about 50 yards behind me, gaining quickly and is massive and looks very angry. Just then a green truck comes sideways around a curve and pushes the Ostrich off of our tail. It was the local game warden and he pulled up laughing his ass off. I was very thankful as I thought it was my final run. Turns out they had been working on trapping them and getting them to an animal rescue but they had only caught the baby so far. He decided to come check on the trap at the right time and saw the protective Momma coming after the runner that she probably thought stole her baby. Game Wardens wear a lot of hats. This was in San Angelo, TX.
I got stuck in a dream for what seemed like days. It was like an eternal now that I'd been in forever, but somehow I was completely aware I was dreaming. There were people I've never seen but i knew them well and they knew me. I tried to exclaim I was dreaming and it's not real, trying hard to wake up. It was all taking place in a house I'd never been in. So much I could write but I'll keep it short. It was horrifying and I felt a primal fear based on thinking I'd never see anyone I knew/loved when I was awake. It was like sleep paralysis, but no ghouls, dark figures, or gaunt faces, just raw fear. It's like my consciousness was picking up a different channel and I wanted to get back to mine desperately.
That I was [sexually assaulted] 3 instances in a 2 week interval. Sounds made up however I want that was true
so there’s this native legend that there’s a cult that practices deep within the woods in my space. one evening, my pal & i made a decision to go on a hike within the woods at like 1am. he stated he knew the realm, i didn't in any respect. unsurprisingly, he will get us misplaced. as we’re wandering round aimlessly, we hear what seems like dozens of voices chanting all of sudden. instantly, first assumption is “we discovered the cult” as a result of that is actually like 2 miles into the woods off of this street that’s in the course of nowhere, no homes or something for miles. we stroll nearer to research bc we’re precise idiots & this coyote seems on the path in entrance of us. i swear it was some form of non secular factor or one thing bc it actually appeared out of nowhere. my pal will get spooked & threw a gallon of milk at it (he introduced the milk with him to drink… he’s an odd one lol). coyote runs off, we resolve that we must always most likely rethink our investigation, particularly contemplating we most likely made sufficient noise to alert them anyway. i inform folks this story & they discover it entertaining however i don’t suppose anybody truly believes me lol
I noticed one thing crouched within the street driving round one evening. It is eyes glowed when my headlights hit it so I assumed an animal of some kind, however after I received inside about 15 ft of it, it stood up and appeared like a woman standing there. I slammed on my brakes instantly, however abruptly the street was simply empty. My pal within the automobile hadn't seen something, however requested me a couple of minutes later if it appeared like a woman. He'd apparently seen one thing comparable together with his sister a number of weeks earlier than in the very same spot.

After I was a younger, occasionally I might see a person in a high hat within the basement of my childhood dwelling. My mom by no means believed me and advised me I used to be imagining issues. Then accused me of being on medicine after I was a youngster after I talked about that I noticed him. I hadn't seen him till I used to be in Crete 15 years later. The query lingers in my thoughts to this present day, who or what.
So I do not know if this suits. However one evening, as a child, I had a dream that my associates and I might go discover crayfmfish (no massive deal). In that dream we discovered crayfish carried them in buckets. We did this usually. However within the dream my cousin slipped on the rocks and damage his arm. And I awoke.

Went right down to the basement to do laundry, the room received actual chilly actual abruptly and I noticed somebody stroll by the doorway to the laundry room (we stay alone). I by no means discovered the man.
