Private Residence Lakeside Ghost Spirit Haunt:
[ User Submitted ] I used to be a non-believer of some things, I hear people talk of ghosts, UFOs and more. Sometimes I ask where is the proof. Nevertheless there are some un-answered questions.
The following story is true, you can believe it or not, I don’t care. This really happened to me and I am really scared.
This is my sighting;
This happened about 4 years ago, I purchased a house in Lakeside, California. Settling in, I straightened all of the wall hangings. In the morning noticed pictures on the wall were all crooked. I re-aligned all of the pictures using a level and few days later they were all crooked again. After living alone for a year, I invited a friend of mine to rent a room, and he noticed all of the pictures were crooked. In a joking manner I explained to him about something was in the house is moving the pictures on the wall. We joked about a ghost. I at the time did not believe in ghosts. I thought ghosts exist, but you could not see them.
I had a co-worker by the name of Cindy come over to my house one evening. She is a descendant of a family of gypsies somewhere in Europe. She claimed that her Mother and Grandmother could summon, spirits from the past, tell fortunes, etc I did not give it much thought. Cindy said she did not have the “power”, but her daughter Dawn did. Well she arrived at my house with her daughter and upon entering my house Dawn was overcome by something, and said, “Something does not want me here”. I said. “Its not me, you are definitely welcome”. She told me she felt there was an entity in the house that did not want me here. This made me feel funny, in my own house. Cindy told me later she never told her daughter anything about the pictures or anything about a ghost in the house.
I continued to do some research. I got in the Internet, looked into some ghosts chat rooms. One claimed, that the ghost is a prankster, not meaning any harm. Another claimed, this could be a start of something bad, you should becarefull, break a mirror and tape pieces of the mirror in each of my windows with the reflective side looking out. I did none of this, I am sure there is an explanation for the events. I have other reasons for not breaking a mirror
On day I was in my bedroom, which was located in the rear of the house to the right. Sometimes I would stay in there for a whole day working on my computer, reading. While I was reading, I heard my roommate come in from his military reserve duty. I heard him open and close the front door, and come down the hallway and open his bedroom door. Thinking nothing of it, I continued to go on with what I was doing and I would say “hi” later. When I left my room, I looked for Charles and I could not find him anywhere in the house. A couple of minuets later he arrived. I told Charles I did not hear him leave. He said, “Leave, I am just getting here from duty” I explained to him I thought I heard him come home. Charles thought I was crazy or hearing things….
It was about two years later I met someone and she had her house, and I had mine. I stayed with her most of the time. We finally made a decision to buy and house so we can both be together. Her house was for sale and, and at 1664 sq. ft. my house was too small for her. One day I found the perfect house 3000 sq. ft. Perfect for the both of us. She moved in and then I moved in last. Then I sold my house.
It was the month I moved in, I noticed the pictures constantly needed straightened. This is getting to be annoying. Whatever was in my house moved with me? My girlfriend Billie and I joked about moving a ghost in the house. We both would say, what are we going to do? Who are we going to call, Ghostbusters??? We joked and joked; now the joking has stopped.
I work a job that has me on-call. One night I was sitting in my truck warming up my engine. I looked up to the security gate and I saw a figure standing behind my gate. I turned on the truck’s lights and the body disappeared. I was always wondering who that was, or what they were doing outside my security gate at approx. 2:00 A.M. I told only a few people, I do not want my friends to think I am some kind of kook!
When I come home at night I try to be quiet so I don’t wake up my girlfriend. But every time I come into the bedroom, my girlfriend always wakes up. No matter how quiet I am, she wakes up and asks me how was work or something. One night after being out working, I came home as usual, and when I walked into the bedroom, my girlfriend had waken up and asked me who’s kid is that behind you? Naturally, I said what kid??? And according to Billie, the kid ran off. This scared her real bad. She was wide-awake and saw a child right behind me.
If this gives you chills like it gives me, then this will scare you like it scares me, keep reading. This gives me chills just typing it.
I came home another night same routine. When I walked into the bedroom, I saw a child starring over Billie as she was sleeping. Billie woke up and the child ran off, and was instantly gone. I was in shock, I could not speak, I could not move, I was frozen. I have never been that scared in my life. I told Billie that I just saw the child she saw before. I explained how it ran off. Billie confirmed my sighting, because the child ran off in the same manner. Just telling the story gives me watery eyes, chills, and goose bumps.
Another night, I got up in the night to get a drink from the refrigerator upstairs. I have good night vision and I navigate throughout the house never turning a light on. In the kitchen I left the light off as I got a soda out of the frig (I am addicted to soda) I closed the refrigerator door as the light went off I was regaining my night vision, I turned 90` and there was the child, almost close enough to touch him or her, I could not tell. Within a blink it was gone. I came down stairs quick, not wanting to alarm Billie; I went back to bed not to get out until morning. Now I am scared, I do not feel safe in the house. I asked Billie to sell the house and we will move. I am afraid the entity will move with me again. I am scared because I do not understand, I do not know what the child wants, why moving the pictures, why following me around the house??? Is someone trying to tell me something???
Another night while sleeping I woke up quick. I heard a noise and looked into the mirror of the dresser, which is in front of our bed. I can see the stairs located down the hallway. I could see a body slowly walking down the stairs, a child. I thought I was dreaming. I leaped out of bed to see and nothing was there. This is getting too strange. Ii looked to see if Billie’s daughter Chelsea got up, but she was sound asleep.
