FIRST-PERSON PARANORMAL STORIES FOR YOUR SEASONAL DOSE OF THE CREEPS
You have two choices: to believe it or not. We’re talking about paranormal experiences here. While some insist that the paranormal exists only in one’s imaginative mind, others believe that paranormal experiences are caused by forces beyond what science can explain. For believers, what’s important is it shouldn't cause harm on anyone. Now that All Souls’ Day is just around the corner, it’s that time of year when paranormal stories do their rounds. SunStar Weekend asked readers this question: “What paranormal experience have you encountered?” Here are the strange, if not scary, stories they have to share:

“My room was situated in the second floor of our old house back then. I was using the computer late that night when I noticed a shadow being cast on the wall near the area where I sat. Since there was light coming from the outside, the shadow was sort of clear to me that it was a man. I didn’t mind it because I thought it was just someone from the neighborhood. The following day, it was then that I realized that I was actually in the second floor of our house to where it is impossible for anyone to sneak at my room. Who could that be?”

“I don’t know if this is a real paranormal experience but this experience really scared the hell out of me. It happened on the night before my grandma’s burial. I was sleeping alone in my room and was sure that I locked the door. I fell asleep and later on I started to experience sleep paralysis. I can feel my heart pounding big time and I was hardly breathing. I felt my body turn numb and I was quite sure that if I can’t wake up I’m gonna die. In what seemed like a few seconds later (while still having that damned paralysis), I saw the creepy shadow of a person.
