Benton, Arkansas Ghost Sightings
I was lying down in my chair asleep. Then something jumped on me, and I woke. Nothing was there, but I still felt weight on my body like something was sitting on me. It happens every Tuesday and Thursday until I said some weird magical words. This is not fake. This is real.|

I moved into my first apartment in the summer of 2009. It is on Watson Lane near Military Rd. Almost immediately I started to feel like I wasn't alone in my tiny one bedroom apartment. During the daytime it was fine but at night it was very creepy. Being a young woman who had never lived on her own before I chalked it up to personal fears until things started physically happening. The first instance was in the bedroom, which always scared me for some reason.
I was half asleep and was woken up by sirens, almost as soon as I sat up and turned the light on my box fan started to move across the bedroom floor. I swear this thing looked like it was dancing! I was terrified I had no idea what was going on. I understand objects that vibrate or oscillate can ''move'' as if they are being pushed, however, I have had these fans for years and they have never done this, nor have they done it since.
I stared in terror at it until it stopped. After it was still for awhile I jumped up and bolted to the living room where I could see my neighbors had called the police after one of their many domestic disturbances. After everything died down I packed a bag and headed for my parents house seeing as there was no way I would be able to sleep much less go back into that bedroom that night. I found myself spending many nights at my parents' due to crippling anxiety caused by being in that apartment at night and always having the feeling of being watched.
After a while I met my boyfriend and asked him to move in with me. One day we were watching a movie with a friend when all of a sudden the TV turned off. I joked saying ''Watch! Next the radio will turn on by itself!'', and that is just what happened. Everyone was shocked but me. I had been dealing with this pest of an entity for quite sometime and it was almost familiar for these things to happen regularly. I turned off the radio, and turned the TV back on, nothing else happened with them that night.
My anxiety began to grow worse so my boyfriend called a close friend of his who was a medium to come out and see what we were dealing with, if anything at all. She was fine until she went into the bedroom. There she said she felt a young man's spirit who was more than likely from around the civil war era. That is strange because she knew nothing about the area or the fact that Military Rd was named after some Military activity around there. She told us to bless the apartment and for me to get rid of all of my Marilyn Monroe décor due to the fact I may be trying to ''channel'' her feelings through myself and that could have been causing my anxiety.

I saw lights. They were in the sky last night. They were very bright and other people must have seen them. They weren't that high up so maybe not that...
