Mom's Torment

S., White Rock, British Columbia, Canada, 1997-1999

This is my personal experience as well as my mother's. We were a family of 6 until my dad passed away in 1994. It was all of a sudden and none of us got to say goodbye to him. My mother kept his ashes in a box beside her bed for about 2 years until one of my uncle's said he should be set free. So we set his ashes free... and since then we have experienced weird things. The first thing that happened was when we came from the ceremony of releasing the ashes, my sisters and I were all sitting in the dining room and talking when all of a sudden the plant a few feet away moved as if someone had just walked by, but no windows or doors were open.

After moving from that apartment, we moved to a house in White Rock, B.C. Weird as it sounds, we moved into our house on October 31. Nothing happened until one night when one of my sisters was sleeping in my mom's room and my other sister was one the phone. I was watching TV when my mom came running from the hallway and landed on the floor. I screamed because I had seen her face and she fell as if someone had pushed her from behind. That night I couldn't sleep at all so I got up and started on some homework for school. As I was sitting in the kitchen, I felt as if someone had come around the table and tried to put their arms around me. I freaked. 

A few months later my mom woke up and screamed and we all got up and she said that she had seen a man walk by her bedroom window and minutes later someone was running around her bed angry.

There were times when I could smell strong perfume and all of a sudden it would just go away. There was usually a specific time (around 4-4:30 AM) I would hear two people having a conversation and I go and check to see if my sisters were up, but of course they were sound a sleep.

There was also an instance when my mom had taken me to the airport and around 5 AM my sister heard a lady laugh very loud in her ear. Shortly after she heard footsteps of someone running up the driveway.

There was this one instance when my mom was home alone and had seen my dad smiling at her while he was sitting on the couch in the living room. She was upset, but didn't make anything of it.

She was also grabbed in the shower and a little while later she saw a black shadow walk away from the bathroom. She had gone to priests and asked them for help and wanted to know why and who was in our house. All the priest said was it was my father and he gets mad at her at times. This really freaked me out, although neither my sisters or I ever experienced and type of force toward us, we would only hear things. There would be times when my mom would be cooking in the kitchen and she would hear someone banging on the walls. The bangs would get louder and louder, it would come close to her and start pulling her hair or just start grabbing her. She would start screaming and when one of us would come into the room, she would say, "I'm ok. He's gone downstairs now." It's like she was the only one who could see it. 

Nothing ever came up in pictures or anything. My mother was the only one who felt it most of the time. I would hear someone coming up and down the stairs at night but never actually saw anything.

When we finally moved out of that house 5 years later, my mom was in the garage and the last one in the house when she said that she forgot something in the garage. We heard her scream at the top of her lungs and I ran inside. She told me that she was just heading into the garage when something tried to stop her from leaving. I could clearly see that her upper arm was red and I could see fingerprints and bruising.

My mom has never gone back or even looked at the house again! I have drove by it a few times and it just gives me the chills.
