My first attempt at something like this so it should be an interesting ride.

Apparition
Do you believe in ghosts or other supernatural entities? Have you ever experienced something you could not explain?

I believe what I have witnessed so I suppose that makes me a believer of there being something out there.

I used to rent an apartment in Liverpool that had once been a hospital and before that a workhouse. So, it is fair to say that the main structure of the building was old, it dated to the early 1900’s. The old wards of the hospital had been divided into apartments which gave the rooms in the apartments unusually high ceilings.

I had been living there for a few months and everything was going well. I awoke one night, it was probably about 2 am, and for some reason I remained very still laying in my bed. Above me I could see faint shadows floating around my room. The best way to describe them is to imagine Casper only very faint or transparent.

I felt calm but a little bit concerned. I turned my head on the pillow to follow one apparition and as soon as I moved, they all disappeared. I explained it away as the remnants of a dream and went back to sleep.

A few nights later the same thing happened. As soon as I made any movement the shapes vanished. This carried on for the rest of the time that I lived in that apartment. (Just under two years).

Some nights I would lay in bed and watch them moving around the room. They weren’t threatening, they were just floating.
After months of watching them I built up the courage to tell my friends. Obviously, I was met with howls of derision! No, I wasn’t drunk. No, I wasn’t smoking whacky backy.

I enjoyed seeing my nighttime visitors swishing around my room. They weren’t doing any harm.
Oh, did I mention? My apartment was directly over the old mortuary.

So, yes, I believe that there is something out there. But not always scary.
