When I was young my Grandmother helped out at...I think it was some kind of charity...called the silver chain. One night, I was waiting in a car with my older sister and I asked what the Silver Chain was. She told me it was this severed hand wrapped in a chain that crawled onto the top of your car and scratched through the roof, then it strangled you. Scared the CRAP out of me.
When I was little I used to think if you yawned when you were in bed with the lights out that ghosts would go in your mouth, so I always had to yawn with a sheet over my mouth. Oh, hey, I still do that.
When I was in elementary school there was one of those rumors going around that if you looked in the mirror and said some phrase a few times, a ghost would come out of the mirror. One of my friends told me that he did it, and that he had let the ghost go. I was afraid that the ghost would come in through my bathroom window, since it was on the loose somewhere out in the world!
I had a nightmare that my uncle was a ghost and that he was trying to kill me. So whenever I saw him I would yell "EVIL GHOSTY" And run away. If I had salt I would toss it at him thinking he would go away.
After watching the Phantom Of The opera one summer, when I was about 9, I decided that If I became a famous singer, like I had always wanted to be, I would become Christine, and this my friend, who was a boy, would be The Phantom, Erik. I don't remember who Raoul was. I got this idea from a dream I had the night after I'd watched it.
It just made me want to be a Famous Singer even more, because I wanted something exciting and fun to happen! I also thought that if I wwent near any mirrors, the Phantom would swivel it round and kidnap me! I was also convinced if I went to an Opera, which I never did anyway, the 'Opera Ghost' would come and get me! Now, I am a HIGE Phantom fan.
I used to believe in poltergeists. My cousin told me they looked like raisins and would fly around the room and move objects. I was terrified.
Once when i was 4 or 5 i saw a ghost walk down the hall and he looked straight at me and since then I'v thought ghost were real and that still freaks me out now.HOLY CRUD!!! I'm not kidding my mom seen him too.
I used to believe that my Barney stuffed animal was possesed b/c my brother put it in a closet cause it creeped him out and it was malfunctioning so it kept talking! And it was wierd!
Me and my cousin Christina were on the computer once and books kept moving out of the bookshelves! Sometimes it was just Christina messing about but most of the time she wouldn't have been able to reach the books!My cousin Christina said she saw three Victorian people/ghosts on our landing too! Also she slept over last night and said she heard someone calling my name so she hid under the covers for the rest of the night! We still believe this and are quite creeped out by what goes on in my house!SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKY!
I used to believe that each time I went onto the flumes something could come behind me and get me until it actually happened!
My grandfather died not long after my family moved into our new home. I used to believe that my grandfather's ghost would come visit at night, like mary, from the mirror and so i'd sit at the foot of the stairs waiting for him to come talk to me.
i used to believe that someone was chasing me when i was walking by myself or when i was last in line. and i still have that fear. [im now 20].
I was convinced that my house was haunted by a ghost and was determined to meet it and become friends. I remember this leading to a series of adventures.
when i was younger i always believed there was this (ghost) woman that would only stick her harms out of the wall while you were sleeping to take ur pillow and smother you , so that your spirit can join her . I thought as long as sleep with my head covered up she could get to me ......ya i uh sleep with my head covered up till i was around 19 years old, (the habbit stuck with me) lol .
I believed in the Candy Man thing (that you do in front of a mirror) because when my friend and I tried it, the doorbell rang immediately after we finished. I know it isn't true, but it still creeps me out.
Since I was a toddler, I believed in ghosts and bogeyman but I believed the rainy days could scare them off the streets and I would sleep soundly during the wet season :-)
This is pretty crazy, but I used to believe that if I sang 'Do you know the Muffin Man' in front of the mirror, a ghost would come out and kill me. I don't know how I came to this conclusion...
I used to think that ghosts can steal your souls and kill you when i was 9.
When I was young I used to believe that a little white rat, with a white chain for a tail (I used to see it too, and even point him out to my younger sister), was a little ghost, and it would warn me of bad people around me by rattleling it's tail. Although it terrified my sister, I was always seeking it. It always made me feel safe. Go figure!!!
I use to believe in the Ouija board..and use to play with it with friends around a table..and u could contact people from beyond!
