Something Was After My Husband

 

One night my husband and I had been arguing, so he had decided to sleep on the couch and I in the room. I lit candles to calm my mood and was talking on the phone with my mom and ended up on the subject of my father; a powerful Indian shaman.

As we were talking I noticed one white candle start to flicker rapidly while the others barely moved. I saw this as strange because the three were close together to cause a bright glow. So I told my mom and she told me that it was him and told me how to talk to him if it was. Anyhow... About fifteen minutes later my bedroom door opened up a little and then closed again. Immediately I thought someone had come through the front door because that's what it did when someone opened it. So I waited to see if I would hear someone walking around.

Afraid for my husband as he was sleeping only a few feet away from the front door. And of course I heard no noise. So I got up and opened my bedroom door, ran through the hallway and turned the light on. I saw nothing so I made my way around the corner into the living room. It was dark so I turned that light on. My husband was still in the same position he had fallen asleep in and of course saw nothing had been moved etc. So I check the front door and it's still locked (just a note: when the front door is opened you have to struggle to open it so it makes a huge squeaking sound). So I went back to my room; talked to my mom until I fell asleep.

The next morning my husband woke me up to tell me he was leaving for work, and he asked me, "Where did you go last night with the car?" And I told him I hadn't been anywhere because he still had the keys in his pocket. So later that day he told me he had three missed calls from a 666 number. And later that night while on his way home another car almost hit our car and drove him off the road.

Another note: Things like this happen when he is trying to argue with me etc. Crazy huh?

annamary 3, Thanks for your comments and believing. I greatly apreciate that. But I don't believe in coincedense. I definitely used to, but as I have experienced many paranormal occurences; I just cant. Karma, fate etc is what I believe in. I will look up your stories and read as well. 😊

This is a great story, very eerie. As elfstone810 said, there can be many non-supernatural reasons for these things happening. With the possibility of those couple things being coincidental, there is still the thing with the door opening and closing by itself. I personally believe that all of those things were supernatural, just because that's how I am. I mean no offense by anyone who believes otherwise. Anyways, this is a great story, definitely scared me.

elfstone810, you make many great points. I completely understand your point on trying to figure out what is what as far as paranormal activity. I do the same things. Thanks for your perspective it'll definitly help the next time anything happens.

:) Hi, taurus!

I just know what I've picked up doing my own plumbing. With the supernatural, I always try to consider mundane explanations, not to "debunk" anything but because I think, if we're ever to understand the paranormal, we need to know what is part of the picture and what is not.

The phone calls from the 666 number could well be a random prank. I don't known how it's done, but I'm told there are ways to make someone's caller ID say almost anything. And, as for the car that almost hit him, well, there are a lot of crazy drivers out there.

The other things you've described, though, are less easily dismissed. The flickering candle *could * have had a damaged wick, but it would have been a hell of a coincidence for it to reach the damaged part just at the same time as you were talking about your dad. Coupled with the later incident with the door opening and the footsteps, it makes for a compelling case.

elfstone810, I understand what your saying as far as the toilet problem. You sound like you know way more than I do about plumbing; I'm definitly not an expert in that area. You make a great point.

Interesting account... The 666 number usually is a number for a cab company, I was staying in a friend's dorm once, and was awakened by a call at 1 am from a 666 number. They left a voicemail saying a cab was waiting for me even though I had never called them.

I'm not saying the school isn't haunted. I'm simply saying that a flushing toilet isn't necessarily paranormal.

How old is your school building, btw? I think my family lived in Eugene before I was born. Some of my older siblings might have gone there way back in the day.

If a toilet has an old or damaged flap that doesn't seal completely it can, indeed, flush by itself.

If you look at, for example, the drain under a hand sink you'll notice that the pipe curves up before turning down again. This curve is called a "trap" because it traps water, which acts as a barrier to sewer gases (so your house doesn't smell bad.) With a toilet, the hole at the bottom of the bowl opens to a pipe going up. The bowl and pipe together form the trap.

When you push down on the flush handle it raises the flap, letting the water in the tank flow down into the bowl. When the weight of the water in the bowl is enough to overcome the inertia of the water in the trap, it starts pushing it down the drain and suction kicks in. Because water is running out faster than it's running in, when what's in the bowl is gone air enters the line. That breaks the suction and the rest of the water from the tank refills the bowl.

If the flap doesn't seal completely, water will leak out, filling the bowl slowly until it reaches the tipping point and makes it flush.

Not saying that DID happen, only that it could have.

Sorry for the long post!

swimsinfire, my father is protective from a distance. Him being a Shaman any number of things happening doesn't surprise me. Thats awesome your son having a ghost friend whom would defend you both. And I couldn't agree with you more on having to defend yourself.

Cool dad! And it's not far-fetched. My son had a total stranger of a ghost do any number of things to my old boyfriend every time he got abusive with my son or myself. I'm thinking your not suposed to have to defend yourself in a relationship, so maybe your dad can have a word or two with the man.

its quite possible it could have been a ghost. Believe me I would have ran to! How can you imagine a toilet flushing? Seriously though, I mean there's no way anyone would just randomly imagine a toilet flushing. So no definitly you didn't imagine anything.

Do you think the ghost flushed the toilet when no one was there? I told my summer school teachers they said I think it was automatic toilets or I was imagining like my dad said automatic toilets he went to school there he said he thought he saw something but he was high drugs that time. I do not know if it was a ghost but I ran out there as fast as I could.

it may have been, but it also could have not. Stories come from some experience. So if people are saying it is, it had to of come from someone dealing with an occurence in the school. And also automatic toilets don't flush unless there was someone just getting off of it. So if you checked the stalls and no one was in there then most likely there was something else.

I believe scientists try their hardest to explain everything with some kind of scientific term. Which makes me laugh sometimes. Sleep paralysis I have never had my entire life, but I have had an experience with that sort of thing and it terrified me. Which was one of the first scary occurences I had when I was around 10 years old. In one of the houses I lived in as a child. Maybe your dad doesn't want to believe in them out of fear or something else.

I definitly think your dad is a Sensitive. Its something like when a person can sense spirits and can hear them. There are different levels of sensitives.

ok, the next time you hear popping or knocking turn everything off. Make it as quiet as you can. Then try and determine where its coming from. If you hear it making something like a rhythm then pray and ask it to stop. Tell it to go away. Spirits can follow you. Your dad may be a Sensitive and you as well. Look that word up "Sensitive or empath" it will give you a lot of info to help you understand.

I can feel them all the time when others cant. Spirits can mess with electronic devices. Tv's,phones, stereos. Has it happened since then? Because it may just be at your dads house, and itstrying to scare you. They also feed off of negative energy. Like being scared, angry or sad.

maybe the tv on sounded like him I swear it sounded like his voice. Back in 2010 I went to white eagle tavern in oregon where I live my dad felt a presence I did not feel anything. Since I can not feel ghost presence I believe so I do not really hear things that much.

Darkassassin92, Most likely its a spirit trying to get you to acknowledge its there. Especially if its calling your name. Did anything else happen after that? For example: knocking on anything and you couldn't quite determine where it was coming from? Or did you get a bad feeling in your gut or the air around you? Let me know. I'm not saying I'm an expert, but I have been through a lot with spirits (Mean and good), so I may beable to help you.
