My Ghostly Ancestor

by Laurie
(Nevada, USA)

My name is Laurie and when I turned 21 I divorced my husband and I went to stay with my mom in Tennessee with my then 4 year old son. One night
I was getting him to sleep and I fell asleep myself to wake up unable to move and I looked up and saw someone standing over the bed. At first I thought it was my mom... this thing had long hair and long fingernails like my mom. So I said, "Mom what are you doing"? and I got no answer.

So again I said "Mom" and still it just kept reaching for me and the third time I just closed my eyes and screamed mommy, yes at 21 I wanted my mom. She came in and turned on the light. I told her what happened and she said it was one of our ancestors. She said she saw the same thing when she was 11. Since that day I have been interested in ghosts and the paranormal. Still scared, but that piqued an interest for me.

Wow that is creepy. I would have so screamed, and as said before maybe they think of us as the ghosts?

That was scary if it happens to one of us.

I would've yelled for my mom, and I'd have needed clean underwear, too!

You were right to scream for someone to come in and hit the lights. Sometimes that's all you can do. As to why your ancestor was holding you to the bed, I can not answer with certainty, maybe they want to know who you are, maybe they think that we, as humans, are the supernatural and want to trap us where they find us. Who knows, maybe we really are the ghosts and they are whats real?
