My experience, I sleep with bedroom door open, suddenly awoke, standing in the door is the shape of a woman in a caped cloak holding the hand of a small child there is a strange glow behind them. I try to switch on my lamp – feel paralysed – cannot move. With great effort I force myself to switch on the light. Apparition has vanished BUT the Dog next door sets up a demented howling. Not having been harmed I go back to sleep.
Next morning I see my neighbour, he looked awful – Without thinking I said what’s up you look as if you have seen a ghost. I thought he was going to scream. He vanished into his flat. When I arrived home in the evening his flat was empty – he had moved!
