now that is a great encounter even if it was or wasn't a spook of sorts. i'd imagine you saw a ghost. what i also like about your written story here. "His entire being was sepia-toned, though I could not make out a face as he held his head low." so i took it upon myself to look up, "sepia-toned" as i had not heard of such a thing before. i'll share the definition real quick.
"Sepia tone is a type of monochrome photographic image in which the picture appears in shades of brown as opposed to greyscale as in a black-and-white image. It was originally produced by adding a pigment made from the Sepia cuttlefish to the positive print of a photograph taken with any number of negative processes."
that be it, those old ass photographs from the 18 & 19 hundreds is how your ghost guy appears. cool stuff for sure.
my grandma was transparent white & gray & blowing in the wind, we had no wind blowing in the living room. when i first saw her she stood there or hovered over there behind the woodstove which is like 4 feet or so in front of a brick wall. i screamed, freaked out & started crying. now this is dad's mother, dad & mom are sitting on the couch in front of us 3 boys. dad is sitting directly in front of me. i had to do a 180 degree turn to see grandma & as i'm doing my boxing club workout routine. i had to stop midstride from a pushup or sit up, whatever it was, turn around & see her. she had me turn around... it would be like mental telepathy or so kinda psychic communication or some such thing. you just know.
so i'm crying, it scared the crap out of me. i'm in 3rd grade & i know grandma is dead & now i'm seeing her because she had me turn around. nobody else saw her. anyhow i say to dad, looking right in his eyes, i just saw grandma. bingdingaring. he (& mom both) instantly knows i'm not kidding around whatsoever. i turn back around towards the woodstove & she is vanishing/shrinking if you will. this time she was no full apparition but rather just from her torso up & she vanished before my eyes, like all her energy was sucked up/condensed into a center point & blink gone.
it all happened in less than 10 seconds i'd imagine.
hescalleddyer... thank you for sharing your experience, i like it a lot
that is some very detailed & time consuming beadwork. how long after seeing the ojibwe tribe was it to when you were gifted the beaded scabbard? also, where did you find the gift & can you give out any other neat details about finding it or whatever. thanks.
was it in a tree?
understood & thank you
speaking of arrowheads... the one & only arrowhead i personally ever found was in a creek about 1/3 mile from the house. i was about 11-13 yrs old. im walking along when i suddenly stop & look down between my feet & there lay the most perfect arrowhead you'd ever saw. it felt like a magical spell had come over me or something. it was a beautiful experience.
took it home, put it in a plastic case w/ a foam botton for protection & a transparent lid that snaps shut. it vanished in our house fire, which sucked bad losing the arrowhead. oddly enough there were several artifacts that made it through the fire even though some received heat damage like dad's axe. (we sifted through debris & found some things). the axe received a hairline fracture but is fully intact... the end
and does sleep paralysis count? had an incident of that about 10 years ago where it felt like someone was on top of me and i couldn't move for about 30 seconds. was freaky but also kind of cool.
i believe they're referred to as ' disembodied voices'
many years ago i lived in a upstair apartment in a really large house. this place was full on energy. one afternoon dad & i are sitting in the kitchen talking, he gets up saying he'll be right back & exits the kitchen walking back towards the bathroom. instantly i am hearing several female voices talking amongst themselves. can i understand what they are saying? no i can not. can i understand the voices i am hearing are female in nature? yes i can. are the voices i am hearing understandable? no they are not. is what i heard something like complete jibberish, or what i believe i am hearing to be solid nonsense?... yes, but i am an outsider
dad walks back into the kitchen & i'm like, "did you hear that?"
dad replies, "hear what?"
i tell him, "as soon as you left the kitchen i heard multiple female voices talking but couldn't understand what was said"
dad says something to the effect, "son of a bitch or holy shit or wow" or whatever. he then says the hairs on his neck & arms is standing up & that just days ago he came home from work (6am-2pm shift) & was walking up the front porch steps approaching the front door when he heard what he thought was his wife, her coworkers & or friends talking up a storm (having drinks after work). he opens the front door & not a single person was home. it was clearly multiple female voices just goin to town like nobodies business... then nothing
by the way, whatever is going on in this house i just mentioned, one time slammed itself or something/whatever it was into my living room wall so hard & so loud it would make your head spin. im sitting there watching tv, it's nighttime but not late & im relaxing. BAM... it was so loud & so hard sounding i refer to the sound as someone like a massive body builder... a 3 or 4 hundred pound guy of solid muscle slamming a hammer fist type blow unto the wall just feet across from me. it was remarkable
i sat up, turned off the tv, walked into the bedroom, locked the door & went to bed. that was very uncool & freaked me the hell out
After I posted in here, I decided that I was just imagining things. Didn't give it another thought. Then my 6 y.o. son wakes up, comes downstairs, and says he's not going back upstairs because she's up there and won't let him sleep. Both of my daughters aren't home. I asked him who he was talking about. "The girl! She's up there and she keeps blowing in my ear and calling my name and then I can't understand the rest. She won't let me sleep!"This isn't the first time they've seen or heard someone. So what the hell do I do with this?
