The voice of something not human

We used to visit my grandparents in L.A. for Christmas growing up. The top floor bedroom of their L.A. home still housed the beds of my great grandpa and grandma. My parents would stay in these beds when we would visit for Christmas. The bed that was my great grandfathers had the stain from the wax he would wear in his hair still on the fabric cushion of the headboard. In his bed, no one could sleep in without the feeling like someone was standing over you watching you. I was home alone taking a shower in the upstairs bathroom and smelled old school pipe tobacco that was not there. My grandfather used to take a Polaroid picture of the table set for Christmas dinner, often while listening to Sinatra. One time there was a large white mist floating above the table in the picture when it developed.

I used to wake up early in the morning and eat various leftovers, while I would watch Saturday morning cartoons. One morning shortly before Christmas, I tiptoed up the wooden stairs from my room on the main level of the house to ask my father if I could eat something out of the fridge. I remember it being very dark in my parent's room, and I did not see my father in his bed as I peered through the banister. I walked back down to the main level of the house and toward the kitchen past the front door. Just before the kitchen and to the right of the study was the door to the long white hallway that led down to the lower level of the house that contained the laundry room, downstairs apartment, and the door to the outdoor pool.
I opened the door facing the long hallway down. I mustered up the courage in my ten year old self to squeak out in a high-pitched voice asking, 'Dad, are you down there?' I instantly knew I was not alone. I felt an electric tingly chill, and was filled with a sense that I should not have asked that question, and that I should escape as quickly as possible. What I heard back gives me goose bumps to this day. I heard a terrible, hissing and powerful voice, which I could hear with my both ears, but also felt as if it was reverberating throughout my mind and my very soul. The voice said, 'NNOOOO!!!!' Scared does not cover what I felt, primal; consciousness altering, sheer terror would be more accurate. Slamming the door, I ran to my room, I then slammed that door; I dove underneath the false safety of my covers. I waited there for hours, wide-awake until my father entered my room, confused to why I was not out already awake watching transformers or GI Joe. I told him what had happened, and he talked me into following his downstairs so that I could see that he could prove that no one was in any closet or space who could have possibly done such a thing. This pointless act was equally as terrifying, as I was in no doubt about what had just occurred. Of course, we did not find anything, so I was left confused and terrified with only questions. The feeling of dread, and the certainty that we were not actually alone when we thought we were.

Years later, when I was about 17 my father admitted that when he was down there playing as a kid, he'd hear voices but he couldn't understand what they were saying, and hear people walking up and down the stairs that weren't there. I know what you're thinking, someone was waiting downstairs in a closet all night to scare me, or maybe it was some walkey talkey. The house had an alarm, which made a loud audible beep throughout the house, so no one else got in and was attempting to hide downstairs.

There were no baby monitors or other technology to use; a walky-talky would not have produced the perfectly echoing sound, and not the feeling of terror I felt. Only someone who has experienced the electric chill of an experience with a ghost can understand the tangibility of the feeling. Lastly, and most importantly even at that age I know a human voice when I hear it and this was not one. I heard the voice of something that was not human, maybe a demon or an angry ghost; but it still chills me to this day.

One more case to add to my cumulative list of people's paranormal claims.††With internet sharing and cable TV I have stories coming out of my ears.

I had an experience of requesting a prank from a known prankster spirit; Erik of Channeling Erik. One day I called out for Erik to play a prank on me as these are his typical calling cards. I tried to keep a focus for a bit in my effort. Asked my deceased dad to give Erik a nudge too. I experienced what I believe to be two pranks by Erik. The first was my neck pillow I use when on the computer. It went missing and I tore the house up looking for it. And then there it was in the back seat of my car. I live alone and verified the only other person with a key was 100 miles away. Of course my mind... [More]

Thank you for your answer. †I am not a hard core skeptic. †I consider myself a rational skeptic that understands there are things we don't know, can't prove that are real. †I have had many experiences but based on your posts I don't recall you ever mentioning your own experiences to validate/justify your strong belief in all things paranormal. †I have had a lot of experiences and I have known a lot of people who make stuff up because they want to be special, that is where my skepticism comes from. †Not everyone is telling the truth when they claim they have had an experience.

I would hold the same beliefs even if I have never had a personal experience. My beliefs are based on my best assessment with all things considered. As I've said many times I believe the majority tell the truth about this kind of stuff and intentional liars make up only a small minority.†

Well, there are some who†may not be intentional liars, but mis interpret or mis understand the experience.

That I agree with.

Creepy story.

What an extraordinary pity that the plural of anecdotes is not data.††Let alone knowledge, let alone wisdom. † An understanding†of society, culture, the limits of perception/memory,†and most importantly psychology is the key.† Not running around and in the absence of any actual evidence, collecting bedtime/campfire tales.

A body of anecdotal evidence analyzed with all things considered can alter my understanding of how reality works. Observation (of the paranormal) can precede the scientific understanding is my position.
