Anyone had any spooky experiences they'd like to share for Halloween?

OK then....maybe not Halloween, but surely some of you has had a wee spooky experience....or knows someone who has, that you can share with us at Christmas! It doesn't have to be 'scary'.....something unusual will do!  Wink

Hey Caz.. I once read a book, and was told it was a true story, about a man who could walk on water and perform all kinds of miracles.

Then I was told his dad (but actually it was him) would be watching me all the time, and that I'd have to dress up as a bride and marry him at the age of 7 and eat his body and drink his blood.

I didn't even meet him because he'd died over 2000 years ago, but I kept being told he was alive.

Now that's pretty creepy, don't you think? wink

When I was nursing I worked in a care home (Pretty Posh) it was like a castle. When I was doing the medication round I asked one of the girls to come with me to do the rounds. She flatly refused as she said the place was haunted. I didn't believe in ghosts so went on to do the round. I went up to the third floor and started my rounds. There was a light switch at one end of the corridor so I put it on. Halfway down the corridor the lights went out I didn't panic and went to the other end of the corridor and put the lights on again. I didn't see anything but the corridor was very cold. Also in the morning before dawn the girls said the often heard the sound of horses drawing up at the front door and the sound of wheels. It was a old building apparently there is a tunnel which the monks used to hide during the reformation. The monks used it to escape from the monastry high on a hill overlooking the care home. The home was in a village called Prestonpans a few miles outside Edinburgh.

Pretty grisly for a child I'd say!

Ooh that's interesting Margaret.  Lights going on or off or doing both, plus feelings of intense cold, are usually signs of paranormal activity.

I read the same book and believed it all at the time.    Now I think it was a way of trying to explain what we could not understand.    A very down to earth neighbour of my mother's told us that when she was in her early twenties, a few years after the death of her mother, she awoke one night and saw her mother at the foot of her bed.    Her mother said to her "Your father needs you" and she went to her father's room.    She called an ambulance and he was taken to hospital
having suffered a heart attack.   This woman was not even particularly religious and I never knew her to go to church or speak of any religion, but the story has always remained in my memory.

I read the same book and believed it all at the time.    Now I think it was a way of trying to explain what we could not understand.    A very down to earth neighbour of my mother's told us that when she was in her early twenties, a few years after the death of her mother, she awoke one night and saw her mother at the foot of her bed.    Her mother said to her "Your father needs you" and she went to her father's room.    She called an ambulance and he was taken to hospital
having suffered a heart attack.   This woman was not even particularly religious and I never knew her to go to church or speak of any religion, but the story has always remained in my memory.
I never read the book, but the reason I said it sounded  a bit grisly for a child was the fact that when I was a kid I was taken to church every Sunday with my parents and I found the whole idea of eating anyone's body and drinking their blood utterly repulsive, so I'd be interested to know how this book got round to explaining it.  I do now know the significance of the Eucharist but it still makes me feel a little queasy.

As for your friend's very interesting story, it proves that you don't have to be in any way religious to have supernatural experiences.  In fact I think that religion can sometimes get in the way of a person's belief in the paranormal even if they have experiences of it, and my Dad was one of them.

Talking of my Dad, two days before my mother died she informed me quite matter-of-factly that shortly before my visit she'd seen my father walk down the ward and stand at the end of her bed for several seconds before suddenly disappearing.  I didn't doubt her because I knew he was letting her know that he was waiting to take her over to the other side, and I like to think that she realised that too because she did know that her illness was terminal and that her death was close, and that she found it of some comfort.
