Lou Johnson, 44, says she was mopping the kitchen floor at her home in Hull, East Riding, when she thought her son asked her: "what are you doing?".
After becoming frustrated and telling him "you're always do this, you'll have to wait" to get into the kitchen, Lou says she turned to see a figure leave the room - though never saw who it was.
However, now Lou has revealed a series of text messages that show her 23-year-old son texted her from upstairs to ask who she was talking to.
Her son is adamant that he was upstairs the whole time, so now Lou is sharing an image she captured the year before to see if any paranormal experts can explain the ghostly goings-on.
The image shows Lou getting ready for a night out at 10pm while a glowing slender figure appears next to her that friends are telling her could be a spirit.
Lou said: "Some see the picture and automatically think it's a mirror behind me and that is a reflection - but there is no mirror behind me. I don't even own a mirror of that size.
"I've had so many people get in touch and say that it is something paranormal and it can't be explained at all.
"Lots of people see the shape of a figure stood next to me with a hand and claws. I have always been a sceptic so I just let people offer their thoughts on it.
"They could all see a hand on my shoulder and a face there too, and while I can see the figure they mean, I was naturally sceptical and thought there must be an explanation.
"However, seeing is believing and what I saw in the kitchen last week does make me question what could be in the house with us.
"I was just mopping the floor when I thought that my son appeared in the doorway near me. He asked me what I was doing and I said 'you always do this, the floor is wet so you have to wait'.
"I just said it because I thought he was wanting to get in the kitchen and was asking at the one time I was mopping the floor, which he's done before.
"I turned to look at him and I saw the shape of someone turn away and then go up the stairs. I thought that was it.
"But my son heard me talking and texted me. He knew we were alone in the house so couldn't understand why he could hear me telling him to 'wait' from downstairs. He was upstairs in bed so he thought it was really weird and texted me to ask me what I was doing.
"At first I thought he was winding me up. I assumed it must have been a prank - like I say, I always look for the rational explanation.
"However once he said he had honestly been in bed the whole time I became really freaked out.
"I know what I heard - it was clear as day a voice asking me what I was doing.
"It unsettled me so much that I had to go and check all of the rooms to check no one was there. I was sure someone must have been in the house with us.
"That's why I want to share the picture now. I really want an explanation of what could be happening.
"I'm a sceptic and there could be a rational explanation for it all but there has been so much happening I feel I need an explanation to put my mind at ease."
Since her encounter with the unidentified figure, Lou has shared the image she caught last year in her search for answers.
At the time the photo was taken, she had been getting ready to go for drinks at a friend's house when her partner took a picture of her.
Lou said: "It was about two weeks later when I was looking through my photos on my phone that I spotted the shape beside me.
"Straight away I thought it looked a bit odd. Then as I zoomed in on the image I saw a face over my shoulder.
"When I put the picture online to see what people would make of it everyone went crazy and were saying that there was someone there with me."
However, this is not the first time that Lou has been the victim of strange happenings in her home.
Lou said: "The first time it happened I was in bed and I had sleep paralysis and couldn't move my head or body when suddenly the quilt moved off me.
"I thought I was dreaming at first but it was very clear and I still think about it now and get the feeling that something very odd happened.
"Once I was polishing and I saw someone in the reflection of the TV. I thought it was my son but when I turned round there was no one there.
"I just don't know what to think. I have felt the presence of something there a few times.
"With all of these things I always tried to look for a rational explanation. But it's odd that I've had so many weird things happen.
"Maybe there are experts out there who will see the image and will recognise what is going on.
"I hope so as I don't want things like this to keep happening. Despite being sceptical, I am open-minded and I would have someone round to investigate the house if that is what they said it needed."
