A Paranormal Experience

I’ve witnessed some strange and inexplicable things that have accumulated over the years.

My very first experience with the paranormal world was when I lived in a small village just outside of Sembach AB, Germany. I've already forgotten the name of the village it was so long ago, but I will never forget the apartment building where I lived. Originally, the large brownstone building made of bricks from an old castle built by the Princes of Ludwig nearly 500 years ago. The town used the bricks to build many of the public buildings, including our brownstone over the years as a Gahsthaus, a school, a brothel, and even a hospital during World War II.

World's Most Haunted

The Encounters

There were several times when we would come home, unlock the apartment door, walk into the living room, and witness the baby's swing rocking back and forth at an incredible pace, and then it would just stop. I remember looking at my husband, and he looked back at me. We didn't say anything, but we knew.

On another occasion, one evening my husband had to pull NATO security at one of the posts outside of town and left me all alone. As I recall, there were only three doors in my apartment. The front door, my bedroom door, the bathroom door, they were all shut. Later that evening, I awoke hearing the sound of doors opening and closing and a light pair of footsteps just inside the kitchen. As they moved closer to my bedroom door, I cringed under my sheets and waited for something, but I didn't know who or what. Looking back, whatever stood outside my bedroom door, waited to taunt me. After a few more strange haunts, we finally moved out of that apartment and closer to the airbase. The old brownstone was one of the oldest buildings that I've ever lived it was ancient. The cobblestone hallway downstairs had old sconces, and when you walked down the corridor at night to answer the door you could hear the echo of your footsteps, and you always felt like someone or something was just behind you.
