How many times have you walked upstairs to go to bed after switching off the lights? The house is in complete darkness. You get half way up the stairs and start to panic. You get goosebumps and feel like there is someone or something behind you and rush up the last few steps to get into the bedroom and put the light on. The top of the stairs seem an awful long way when you are scared.
This has happened to me so many times I have lost count. I get the shivers and it feels like I will never reach the light switch.
What if you reached out for the light switch and you hand was snatched away from it by something unseen?
What is something brushed past you, touching your skin?
What if you reached out for the light switch and your hand touched something else, something you were afraid of. A tarantula or a clammy invisible face.?
What if your worst nightmare played out and you never got to switch the light on at all?
How vivid is your imagination? How badly can you scare yourself?
Switch off all of the lights now and give it a try.
