Ghosts? Some things even science can’t explain

Ghosts? Some things even science can’t explain

As the wind blows through your hair, you might feel something near you that makes you feel spooked. This might be an unsettling sign of a ghost; at midnight, one thing might come into your mind and you will close your eyes and pray.

Have you ever felt that there is someone standing somewhere and staring at you in the complete dark?

Sun Dalin, at the age of 10, experienced something like this when she lived at her hometown in Pursat province. Feeling someone touching her feet, she woke up and saw something eerie.

“I saw a lady with long hair sitting on a hammock,” she said nervously.

“At that time, I was very scared and wanted to shout out loud, but my friends used to tell me that if we saw a ghost, we should not shout. If we shout, then it meant the ghost won, so they would come again and again. That was why I tried hard not to shout, but I hugged my grandma tightly.”

Her mother said that this might be a house spirit because her brother used to see it as well. This must be the reason why Dalin always uses a blanket to cover her feet as well as her body.

The second time was when it was raining heavily. With a surprised expression on her face, she said that it happened when her father was ill, and he told her to fix a gutter under the house. While fixing the gutter, she suddenly saw a man in a traditional skirt who helped her lift the gutter. Shocked, she ran to her father without hesitation, and then she realised that her father was biting his tongue. After helping her father, her grandma told her that man maybe wanted to tell her that her father was in danger.

Have you experienced this kind of thing before? The unsettling sign you see or feel can be a spirit, not a ghost.
