Real Ghost Stories

Is This A Poltergeist?

 

First of all I'm a sceptic but this type of thing has always interested me and I know I'm not the only one.

This story starts a week ago, I was downstairs and my 3 year old son was asleep in bed, it was about 11pm.

I heard him stirring and get out of bed so as I was about to go upstairs when he gave out an almighty scream, the scream makes me shiver just thinking about it. I ran upstairs to find him stood there white as a sheet, eyes tightly closed and fists clenched, I picked him up and he was shaking, he was distraught, I took him downstairs to calm him, after laying on my belly, he sat up and I asked him what was wrong, he said he saw an old woman and a man in my bedroom with angry, scary faces, (just so you know my landing light is on and he's got a light on in his room and my blackout blind is down)

I was a little freaked out and played on my mind all night, the next day I found pictures of grandparents that have passed and showed my son, he didn't look scared when looking at them and was curious to who they were, so I thought it can't be them who he saw...

A week later the same night (I'm not with my sons mum, so only have him on weekends)

My son was asleep and I was downstairs watching TV and my ex (sons mum) was round, it was about 9pm and we were sat on the sofa, then all of a sudden, a coaster just flew across the room (about 6ft), as you can imagine we were really freaked out, my natural reaction was to check on my little boy, he was sound asleep, me being a sceptic, checked all the windows, doors etc. To find an explanation to why this happened, my ex is a believer and said that wasn't just a ghost but maybe a poltergeist, I'm still unsure, I want to do a Ouija board but would this make things better or worse

Any advice would be grateful

Thanks for reading my story

I apologize. I somehow missed the post about your decision, and so I have posted erroneous info. 😕

Sorry!

Don't touch a Ouija board. The overall consensus in regards to the boards seems to be that they are bad news. While there are a few positive stories involving the boards, most stories end with bad, long-terms results.
If you do use one, make sure you take several protective precautions, watch what you say/ask, and pay CLOSE attention to the answers (are they negative, positive, vague), the time (something's wrong if what feels like minutes was actually hours), and the atmosphere (if it changes for the worse).
Please don't use it, and if you do, please be VERY careful.

I'm glad you have decided not to use the ouija board, A good house cleansing may help your situation, and maybe getting a clairvoyant etc to come to your house to do a reading and/or a clearing may help to get your home back into the peaceful state it once was.

Do you know the history of this house you are in? Are there any possible answers in looking that information up for you maybe?

Please keep us posted on your progress.

I would be freaked for my kid too if that happened. About the Ouija Board, NO! That's just like opening a door for a devil. It will bring unwanted spirts, don't try it. Stay away from it for your son.

HI... Pretty freaky to have your first experience to be such with your baby being there and making you Vulnerable...
I wouldn't suggest an Ouija Board without the help of a practitioner as it is really risky. The best option would be getting the house blessed...
All the best.

Thank you all for commenting, it does help that you all obviously care enough to comment,

Bach - no he wondered who they were but hes only 3 so couldn't explain how they werent here, when hes older hell understand.

Im not going to use a ouija board but thanks for the warnings, even as I write this post at 00:35 I feel dread, sick and emptiness and that someones watching me.

Im not a religious person but I feel I may need to go see a priest

ouijalad DONT USE OUIJA BOARDS!
Look up all the stories on here about them I know of only 1 good experience to do with them so its not a good idea messing with them.
And yes I have been one of the posters who has "played" with one so I know what I'm saying!

Has anything else happened? I would surgest doing a clensing rookgin has added how on here in a few comments try contacting him he could help you out.

I hope you get the help your looking for and feel safer in your home soon

Did you explain your grandparents to your son? It didn't seem that he showed any recognition. Am I wrong about this?

definitely DO NOT use a ouija board! You can attract other negative things and make it worse! Get someone who knows what there doing!

ouija board actually could/most likely make it worse. But I do think it could be a poltergeist. I used to have a ouija board and my mom threw it out cause I was freaking her out seeing things that werent there... But I always have but actually happens more often now that I had once owned a ouija board...

This might sound weird but I looked at dreams meaning adn this is what I found
Moth that eats clothes - you need to renew your clothes.
Moth - Means that you will fall in love with a easy women that will cause you a lot of pain.
Anyways I think you should bless your home as soon as possible to prevent something bad from happening. Mostly these things can't cause phisical pain but they do scare the young and can traumatize them later in life.

thanks for commenting, just to add, I woke up this morning and there was around 20 huge moths in my bedroom, and no windows were open, and I haven't got a clue where they came from, and you know when you have one of them dreams that seem real, a tall man all in black (I know its a cliche), no face was stood next to me touching my head, and then all of a sudden a huge bang and I woke up, sweating and pretty much freaked out to say the least, this was around 4am, and I couldn't find a reason for the bang, I am safe to say I'm beginning to lose my mind, and afraid for my little boy

I wouldn't recommend a Ouija board because it might make them think that you want to communicate with them. Get a priest to bless your home, I think that should help.

maybe a Ouija board would make it worse? But you could try it out and see. Or you can get professional help?
