I have seen many ghosts on many occasions but this is the encounter that made me believe.
When I was younger (about 12) I had been sitting up in bed reading harry potter. It was about 1-2 o’clock in the morning and I had been reading for a while. Something caught my attention so I glanced up over my book and saw a shadow of a hand waving at me on from the door. I was stunned and I just stared at it trying to make sense of what I was seeing. After what seemed like 5 minutes of just staring at the small shadow hand I looked down to save the page of my book and when I looked back towards the door again it was gone. It was only after the shadow was gone that my brain realised what had just happened and I started to get scared, all I could hear was my heart racing.
The morning after I told my mum what had happened and she told me that I was dreaming. I know this to be untrue because I could remember everything from the book I was reading.
I’ve never seen a ghost show itself like that since. People might not think this is that scary … to be honest looking back on it now I don’t think it was very scary but it happened and at the time it was impossible and crazy. Comment if you’ve seen anything similar !
