Sleepwalker or Hijacked Body?

Tanner from Utah sent me this creeped-out tale about something that happened when she was 4 years old to her and her two sisters.

Jason--

When I was about 4 we lived in a huge house in a small town. That house had a record of being haunted. Things would turn on and off and there would be weird noises. One night my two sisters were sleeping in the same room. My sister Cam (not quite asleep) bolted upright because she heard something on the ground. She woke up my sister Shay. Shay looked on the ground by her side of the bed, and she saw me! She said later that I was just laying there smiling up at her. She told me to go back to bed, but when she turned on the light, I had vanished! I wasn't there anymore!

Thing is, I don't think I ever left my bed! So either I have a weird power where I can move instantly to different places or a ghost or something took the form of my body and appeared there in the middle of the night. I don't know why this happened but it sure is weird!

ps. I've read your book 3 times!! It was great!

Thanks, Tanner, for sharing that story. Here's hoping that these days you stay put through the night.

Oh, my. My friend Nancy has quite a few stories like that from a home she used to live in. Boy, this is looking odd.

I have two stories, one involves my mother when she was a little girl of about 11. She was born in 1924 and was walking back from a school function in rural Arkansas where she grew up. She was walking with her brother, who was about two years older than her when they decided to shortcut through the cemetary. As they were coming out of the cemetary, they encountered two nuns helping a wounded civil war soldier wearing a gray confederate uniform. she said they cautiously walked by them and then turned around to look and they were all gone. Then they ran home as fast as their legs could carry them. They both swore that it was true, and there was an abbey close by and a lot of confederate activity.

The other story involved me. I was in college and married and was working a LOT. So when I got an afternoon off with no school and no work, I took advantage and took an afternoon nap in our new apartment that we had just moved into. My parents had both died a couple of years before, and I hadn't been particularly thinking about them. When I woke from my nap, I lied there with my eyes closed thinking that I should get up. When I finally sat up with my elbows planted in the bed I looked up and saw my father, but at a much younger age, then he just disappeared. It startled me so much, that I jumped up and ran outside. It wasn't a dream because I had been awake for a while, it wasn't light playing tricks or sleepiness, it was real. That was my only real experience with the paranormal.

Wow! I've sleepwalked before, but not like that. I heard that there was this one girl who sleepwalked to the top of a crane! They woke her up by calling her on her cellphone(I don't know why she had it with her).
