Witness: Lilly Finlay
Location: Brisbane, Queensland Australia
Date of Encounter: January 2007
I have been living in my house for about 10 years now and I have never encountered anything supernatural up until about five months ago. The first night anything happened, I was lying in bed with the light off, when suddenly the room went icy cold and this is strange as it was boiling hot here in Australia this summer and I had just a sheet. So of course I was a little freaked out, but I thought nothing of it. So I just lay there in the cold, trying to get to sleep despite the strange feeling that was growing in my stomach — like I was being watched. Suddenly, I felt someone push me to the other side of my bed, and I jumped up and turned the light on. After a few days, nothing more happened, so I had the light off when I was sleeping again. This time I heard all these whisperings around me, but one distinct male voice that was right in my ear, and I could feel hot breathe on my neck. At this point, I didn't feel threatened, and I don't think the spirits have ill intent, but of course I was a little spooked. I again got up and turned the light on. I decided it safe to sleep with the light on for a while, just to secure myself before turning it off again. This was the final straw. I was woken up during the night to someone stroking my face, and when I sat up, I felt as if someone was trying to hold my hand, and I heard a soft whisper telling me everything would be okay — that he was fine. I had no idea what this meant, and about a week later it clicked to me that maybe this whole thing was a warning, as a week later, my uncle committed suicide and it all stopped.
