How hard is it to believe in paranormal activity

Are you a believer?

For centuries, several people claimed to have been in contact with supernatural activities throughout the globe. The vast majority of the population see it as ghost stories and nothing more and they won't believe anything unless they see it with their own eyes. In today's society, especially in the entertainment aspect, the supernatural world is vastly used in tv shows and movies. They give us the creeps for a brief instant and for some of us, take away some hours of sleep but, of course, as we grow older we get used to it and we are less scared of scary stories or horror movies.

As for me, I have heard from some friends their stories about when they saw the halo of a deceased person or a television set that turns on by itself. I never really bothered with all these stories but recently, some events have happened and I am starting to become a believer, if one can say.

It all began at my friend's house about three months ago. Her room is in the basement and one night she hears footsteps at her door and a person singing a lullaby. Of course she freaks out and tells her sister to stop doing that but her sister is sleeping in her room. Reality or part of her imagination? Who knows. But I do know that the next morning she called in panic mode: ''OHH my god there was somebody last night whispering in my house! Please come here I am scared!!! and blablabla. Of course I did not believe her for a second so I offered her to stay for the night and watch a movie with her just to make her feel safe. So I get on my slippers and get ready to watch a movie with, I have to admit, a small hope of something happening. I do not remember what movie we were watching but my friend fell asleep about an hour into the movie. I said to myself ''Ok, is this the time for some paranormal activity?''. Eventually, as you can guess something did happen.

The stairs that lead to the basement are old and they creak when someone comes down. Suddenly, I hear crackles like if someone was actually coming down. I say to myself that it's normal and that they can do that by themselves sometimes until...I feel a small breeze invading the room like if the temperature had gone down a degree or two and at the same time all the furnaces start working at the same time. All of a sudden my heart starts pumping and I get a huge rush of adrenaline. I wake up my friend to tell her what just happened and I am frustrated at the same time because she was right and I did not want to believe her.

Was it the work of my imagination or did something really happened? A few weeks went by and nothing ever happened until my friend comes to my place. A week or so after her visit, my brother tells me that the printer turned on when he was watching a movie...and it's not a wi-fi printer so no chances of someone printing in the house from their laptop.

Ever since, nothing has happened with such magnitude as these events. As I write this hub I am wondering if there is someone, or something, watching me from somewhere. I do understand that this is hard to believe and that it falls into the section of ''Oh no not another one!''. After all I am just another person who claims to have ''seen'' something and I would understand if you are skeptical about all this because I too, would be. At least I hope it was entertaining!

Thanks for reading my hub! I was so fascinated with my hub when I was writing it because I wanted to share it with everyone. My only concern was that people don't usually believe in these kind of things but when someone tells me my hub was honest and sincere is very kind. Thanks!

I like your story, it reminds me of the things that happen everyday in my home. Since I wrote about the ghost in my house things have gotten more weird!!! :)

Awesome hub, and I love a skeptic turned into a believer, most exciting. I too believe there are such things as ghost, bigfoot, UFOs. This world is just full of things that we have just scratched the surface discovering. In some state, they have adopted the laws that require a seller of real estate to inform the buyer that the property may well be haunted. The government has added Sasquatch as an endangered species and killing one can result in prison time and fines. I love your hub, and you now share the same experience that many of us have. I too have a ghost in our house. Great great job.

Shawn May Scott:

You seem to be living in a haunted....nice!!! Just kidding. I'd like to live in it but for no more than a week!


I also believe that there are tons of things we still have to discover and see. But again, a big debate could be started concerning science and physics to explain the unexplained...or at least try to!

I would try to stay in a haunted house, and then see what I think from there. I would also take a stop watch to time how fast I run out of that house when something does happen. Not that I want to see how long it takes me to get scared, but because I want to see if my running has improved since highschool :)

A friend of mine knows about an abandoned asylum and apparently it's haunted. She tried to convince me several times to go with her but I have the creeps! it would be a great way to see if my running has improved too!

I have been to a haunted asylum...It was an awesome experience, and I wouldn't change anything about it. If I had a chance to go there again, I absolutely would.
