My True Ghost Story for Halloween

My True Ghost Story for Halloween  

***

This is a true ghost story. It happened in the house we live in now.

THE LEVITATING MIRROR

Levitate, levitation, levitating…to rise or float in the air esp. in seeming defiance of gravitation; the act or process of levitating – esp. the rising or lifting of a person or thing by means held to be supernatural.

Our bedroom mirror levitated…by itself!

We’ve lived here in this house for quite a few years, now, and we are only the second family to have lived here. We met the previous owners, and they are not weird, and no horrible thing ever occurred in this house, that we were made aware of. It’s just that the paranormal seems to follow me around, no matter which house I’m in.

The mirror in question, was a used one…one of those kind of tall ones that fit onto a dresser. It wasn’t bolted on, though, just propped up against the wall, and dresser top. The dresser was covered with all kinds of junk that accumulates, such as papers, bills, a glass lazy-susan that held coins, pens, watches, and miscellaneous items. There was a box of papers, a piggy bank, a belt, some cards…well, the whole top was covered in stuff.

I was sitting in the dining room, doing some scrap booking. The bedroom where the mirror was, was one wall away and in front of me. We have four cats, but they were all sleeping in the far back bedroom. It was quiet in the house…no TV on, no music playing. Suddenly, I hear a terrible crash coming from the bedroom. I went to see what it was. I found that the mirror had fallen onto the carpeted floor, and shattered.

What was so strange was that absolutely nothing in the bedroom or on top of the dresser had been disturbed at all! Not one thing had fallen off to the floor. There was no way the mirror could have just fallen frontwards in the first place, because of all the stuff on the top of the dresser. It couldn’t have slipped from the bottom, either, as it would have knocked off the stuff.

All I can believe, is that somehow, the only way…the only way this happened, was that the mirror levitated itself, going up and over the things, silently, then turned itself sideways to the dresser, then crashed down onto the floor. That’s when I heard the crash! I ran in, and saw it laying on the floor, sideways to the dresser, mirror glass side down…on carpet. The sound of breaking glass had been loud, though!

What is also surprising, is that it did not scare me at all. I was just like, well, gotta clean up the glass shards. I’ve gotten so used to objects flying around the houses I’ve been in, that it has become the normal thing. I had a bit of a time, trying to get that mirror up off the floor, as it was pretty heavy. I couldn’t just lift it up and take it out. I had to drag it all the way through the house and out to the garage. It stayed out there for a long, long time; we just recently got rid of it. Nothing else ever happened with it.

That incident was only one of several, here in this house. I’ll tell more in another post, and also things that happened in other houses I’ve lived in.

Hope your household goods stay put, because mine sure don’t!

  1. That’s wild! We’ve had a few mysterious happenings ourselves so this doesn’t surprise me in the least. But that must have been one determined spirit to actually lift something so heavy!

  2. Kool beans gurl!!!…
    our home is pretty active … it used to be the bankers home b4 it came into better half family …it’s so old but kool…I believe it was built in the 1875…it like a vortex …lol…this house dads was build in 1912 so not as old …I may have to write a blog post of some of the things that have gone on lol…but it would be a very long post so that is one reason not writing it lol…it spans from 1972 and up until we had to help dad n move here yeah active lol…but never scared like you said…and many have seen what went on in our home …

  3. That would have freaked me out! I was always afraid of ghosts, even though I didn’t really believe in them. Since living in this house I can’t deny there is something more out there. Ghost, dimension whatever…

    • Yes, there are so many unexplained things we just have no idea. I love thinking about it, though, and I suppose have become a bit used to noticing if anything weird happens around here.

      • One time I found an old military award medal in an old dresser here. The owner of it had committed suicide in our house during the war while he was on leave.
        I hung it on a nail. turned and walked away. Out of no where it flew inches from my face and fell in front of me.
        It was bottom heavy, if it was to fall off, it would have fell down, not four feet away from the wall. It was odd how I reacted to it, the first time something like that happened here, I ran out of the house, did not even lock the door. I didn’t come home until my husband was back,
        This time I picked it up, told him I hung it out of respect for him and that I would hang it back up, if he wanted it put back to let it fall again. It hung there for years without falling again. I have since packed away though.

      • That is such a interesting story of the medal. The owner of the medal was definitely getting your attention like that. I think you told it the right thing, and he was happy for it. 🙂
