As promised in the last journal update.Warning: You're free to believe them or not. I'm not forcing anyone to believe anything in this journal.
It will be a mix of stories I heard of, read on internet or happened to myself, etc. I will give you link to some sources too.
Alright, sit comfortable in your creepy armchair, grab some candy corns and enjoy the read.
I come from a very eccentric family. All the women from my mothers side have something supernatural about them. Many of them are mediums and can contact ghosts and see/communicate with them. Hell, my aunt is an exorcist and can purify a house of bad spirits. I can't see ghosts though and I am glad, because I'm a scaredy cat. But I think the reason why I can't see them is something more than being unable to. Maybe they're just scared of me more than I of them. I can however foresee future events sometimes and I'm good at decoding dream meanings. More often than not it seems like a simple coincidence, but let's not get too deep into it.
Well anyway, because of that, my understanding of death is a bit twisted in a sense. I do not fear death, to me it's just natural. If someone dies, it doesn't feel like they're gone. To me they're still around. They still exist. We just can't interact like we used to. It's a feeling hard to describe. But it's perhaps like being familiar with a wild beast - everyone is scared of it, but you pet it and play with it without fear. I have been afraid of death a lot when I was a kid. But people change.
Because of that bloodline my family has a lot of spooky stories to tell. I have few too. I'll share some.
My grandpa always disliked hospitals and he kept saying "If I go to a hospital I will die there!". He strongly refused to go near those and it was a bit foolish, because he was a quite frail and sickly man. Whenever I visited with mom, I always remember him lying in bed and coughing badly. He didn't move much around the house either. He was very old already and had some infection, but still he didn't want to go and spend a few days in a hospital to get better. Finally the infection got so bad, he was forced to go to a hospital immediately. However, it was too late and a day after he died. It was Friday the 13th...
It's a bit ironic though. The doctors said if he'd arrive there faster, he would definitely be saved.
Well, rest in peace grandpa.
My mom was the first born in the family of 6 kids. She had a strong bond with her dad - my deceased grandpa. Even though they argued a lot, she knew him the most. After my grandpa died, my uncle (mom's brother) was haunted by strange noises when he was alone at home. He complained about that to my mom. My mom just smirked and said it's grandpa that haunts him. "You promised our mom that you gonna renovate her house, but you never finished it. A promise our dad has known about. You broke the promise so he's now angry. If you finish what you started, he'll leave you alone."
My uncle just snorted. "yeah right"
But the hauntings didn't stop. So he finally moved his ass and finished the renovation like he supposed to. He never got haunted again.
Moms second brother, my other uncle, he found himself a girlfriend, Patricia. He's not as religious and definitely not traditional as his parents and sisters are. He's a bit of an asshole too. Back in the days it was a great insult to the family if a couple expected a child, but weren't married. You know, old traditions. This happened to my uncle. His girlfriend got pregnant and they have a son, they aren't married yet and they procrastinated with the christening of the child as well.
One time his girlfriend confessed to my mom that she had dreams of an old man, trying to tell her something, but she had no idea what it was.
When she told that same thing to my grandma, my grandma took a picture of my deceased grandpa and asked if that's the man from her dreams. Patricia got terribly pale as it was indeed, the man she saw in dreams. And she never saw my grandpa in person before, as he was dead since few years when she started dating my uncle and she never asked about him either. Well she got really scared and thought perhaps they should visit his grave and light a candle or something. My mom just shook her head and said "It's not that. Look, dad was very religious. He's definitely angry at you two that you didn't get married yet. But now he's pissed even more and he can't overlook the fact the child isn't christened yet. You better do it quickly or he'll be pestering you more and more"
Patricia was hella scared since the dreams turned to nigtmares already, so they decided to christen the child immediately. And they did last saturday. I have to ask mom how it went yet.
My grandma was very young and she was taking care of few kids from the neighbourhood. They all were good friends. There was that 6 years old boy I think. One day my grandma said to him, that she'll buy him a delicious chocolate bar if he'll behave when parents are away. He looked forward to it a lot and behaved like a little angel. But later that day he got hit by a car and died. Few days later my grandma got dreams about him. "You promised me a chocolate bar, remember?" he said. And that continued for few nights in a row. "You promised!" he always said. Grandma got a dilemma, how the hell do you give a chocolate bar to a ghost??? In the end she bought it and buried near his grave. The dreams stopped.
My aunt Krystyna is a self proclaimed exorcist. She has even a small "team" of ladies that help her in her small missions. Whenever someone in the neighbourhood is haunted or followed by bad luck, she comes over and prays with her team, to banish evil spirits. I never meet her in person, but she sounds pretty badass. Whenever my family was in a bad situation, mom called her and she said she'll pray for us. Usually after two weeks of her prayers the situation got better and we had some lucky days after that. She has a bunch of mysterious rituals she uses. And even spells. She even has something like an ultimate spell but she said it's very dangerous, because it can backfire badly. Like instead of puryfying someone you can get possessed instead. Pretty creepy. She sometimes shares the stories of her adventures with demons, but it's always about objects being thrown at her by some invisible force or lost ghosts begging for some mercy.
I kinda like her because she didn't judge me after I decided to be agnostic. When mom told her (on the phone), she just said "that's sad" but she never forced me to anything, unlike mom did. My aunt is pretty cool and I hope I can meet her sometime. She lives far away and mom says she has never time to visit her. Fun fact though, because I wanted to give some tribute to my aunt, I gave my OC Adam her last name, Orłowski. However, few days later mom said my aunt has a son named Adam. It gave me a small jawdrop. I didn't know that before. All I knew was that she had a daughter that already married and that was it.
I lived in a dorm, and I had few cool roommates, we were good friends, some more or some less. One of them was Kris. He liked spooky stores, he was very religious but a bit of a daydreamer, forgetful and sicklish weakling. If it was an anime, he'd be a gag relief character in our gang. He had to take some medicine each day, but he sometimes forgot to take it. He had a habit to lock the door to his room at all time, of fear of being bullied. All of us usually locked the door just during night time or when no one was in the room. And he lived alone in his room. We liked to chat and joke together and watch movies and stuff. One time I felt a little bit weird when I was about to leave his room. I turned to him "Hey Kris, don't lock your door all the time. If something happens to you, we won't be able to enter." He just nodded reading his book "yeah ok I will." he mumbled.
Few days later I and my friend, we wanted to drop by at his room but the door was locked and no matter how much we knocked, he didn't open the door. Of course it was locked, so we couldn't enter. One day passed and we got seriously worried that he didn't response neither to the knocking, nor to our phone calls. I panicked and went to the front desk guy and told him what happened. He came over and started to knock but again, no response. He just shrugged and said maybe no one is inside. I asked him if he can open the door but he refused, saying he can't do that. I just shook my head and started begging "What if something happened to him, what if he needs help???" But he left calling me hysteric. A day later my friend said he asked few tough guys to finally ram the door. And they found our Kris dead. The case was really loud, there was police and all. And the guy from the front desk apologized to me a lot for ignoring me back then. "I-if we had opened the door maybe-"
"It doesn't matter now." I just replied and left. His death was a big shock to me ad it was pretty much why I rebelled and became agnostic in the end.
But I warned you Kris. I warned you about the door.
I had a dream about Kris. We had a long talk. But I couldn't remember much of it after I woke up. Just that we were in a huge room that looked like a clock tower, with gears and pendulums. The only thing I recall was that we both weren't happy about what happened, and he seemed guilty. Well, seems right. After that there was a break and then he came back again in another dream, and he was rather cheerful and told me few things that I would like to keep secret here. But he was doing well and he mentioned that he won't be around for a while, being "busy". I nodded and waved when he left. I'm glad he's doing fine in the afterlife. Definitely better than he did being alive, ahem UwU;
Speaking about the gear room, few years later I have read an article about a "timeless zone". It's supposed to be something like a separate dimension, and the description of the place matched my dream pretty much. Wow.
If I say something, you better listen to me. If I say something won't work, it won't. If I give you advice, you better make sure to accept it. People though ignore me a lot. And in the end I'm the one to say "I told you"
. But it's sometimes too late. Just like with Kris, and in many other cases too.
My friend was working hard each day helping his family (you know who you are) and he complained he had no time to relax. I told him that tomorrow he'll have a free day "I can feel it in my bones" I said. He was surprised because the next day didn't seem to be free at all. It seemed like I just wanted to cheer him up somehow. But in the end, because of some sudden circumstances he got a whole free day just as I said. He was like "I will never doubt your bones".
The father of my friend went to a hospital. (you know who you are) It sounded rather serious, but I felt like he'll be home soon. I told her that he should be back faster than everyone thinks. Few days later she said he'll be staying at hospital for 6 weeks. "Impossible!" I thought to myself. "I was wrong???" well even me can be wrong, I huffed. I was completely sure of my foretelling. But few days later she said he'll be in hospital for 4 weeks. "Well ok, still I thought it will be much faster" I thought to myself. In the end he spent 2 weeks I believe and then was released home. In the end he did
come back faster than everyone thought.
It was back in my university years, 3rd year. I woke up and felt so not like going to classes. I rolled to the side "Not worth it anyway" My roommate was also my classmate and she asked if I'm going or not. "Nah." I said. So she went to the classes alone calling me lazy. She came back after 40 min. She said the classes were dismissed for today. I spared myself the trouble of preparing and arriving to the university for nothing.
I was a kid and I was staying at my grandmas place for few days. Also my kitten got sick so I was taking care of it all day long. Then mom came over and after some gossipping with grandma she said we're going home. "But mom, if I go my kitten will die without my help"
"He'll be fiiiine." she replied. Of course I was ignored. We came over the next day. My kitten died. I was terribly sad.
Sometimes I have dreams with certain symbols in them that hint me what can happen in a month, so I can prepare for few things in advance.
I sometimes catch myself asking "what if" questions in mind, completely out of blue and mostly unrelated to what I do and they sometimes hapen soon after.
There's that small abandoned german cementery hidden in the forest I live by. They say it's haunted, but I don't really believe that. I was there exploring the place few times, and I saw nothing supernatural. Well maybe that's because the graves that have been there, they have been moved away, so what's left is a huge half-buried hole in the ground, and a destroyed little chapel. But I do remember being there once, when the graves were still there, I was maybe 10 years old. Anyway I heard a story about that place, and what happened the time people were moving the graves away. One of the dudes decided to steal some tiles from the chapel, and decorate his walls with these tiles. But soon after that he was haunted in his sleep and he heard creepy noises around his house. In his sleep the voices said to "give it back" so few days later he ripped the tiles off his walls, and put back in the chapel. He could finally sleep peacefully.
I had a dare with my cousin to go to the abandoned cementery in the evening. You know, who chickens out first will lose. We took the shortcut trough a wheat field along a ditch overgrown with weeds. We were walking and chatting and at some point my cousin was like "Did you heard that?" and froze.
"Nah. There's nothing." I said and picked up a stone and tossed in the ditch. In that moment a young deer jumped out of the weeds directly at us, and we panicked yelling loud, paralyzed from fear. He seemed to get even more scared of our screams and turned around and ran away as fast as he could. We gasped and there was a moment of silence. And then we started to laugh so badly, and we went back home because the dare was over as we both chickened out at the same time. We were lucky though, he was huge and could have trampled us with ease.
This very village I live in, it belonged to Germany once, the house I live in is almost 100 years old and it was built by germans. My dad said that when he was a kid, he and his friends were walking home through the forest to take a shortcut. They often saw a shadow lurking in the distance, a man in a military uniform. Dad said his friends even found some skeleton remains, some bones and a skull that they were kicking like a ball (for fucks sake dad!) They said it must have been his. The ghostly soldier didn't do anything but his persence was pretty eerie and people felt being watched. In the end someone asked a priest to purify the place, and the soldier stopped to haunt it.
Mom says she sometimes can hear voices outside her window. Or shuffling in the back hallway and loud knocking at the door, when no one's there after you check. Bro saw some faint orbs in the staircase, and I saw a shadow pass behind me when I looked in the glass door reflecting the back of the room. Sometimes I heard loud knocking in the small table we have at the staircase when I passed by, without any reason. Sometimes my sis sees things too.
I think there's something here, but rather harmless to give any damn. Still spooky to walk the hallway at night I tell you.
