New Office 4 - The Final Chapter?

 

I have submitted a few stories regarding my new office and the occurrences that plagued me since moving in. To say this move has been interesting would be an understatement. Taps on my shoulder, voices, and conversations, being asked by disembodied voices to come home with me, doors opening and slamming, whew. This has certainly kept me on my toes.

About a week ago I had a Minister come to my office after hours and bless my office hoping to rid myself of the entities that were intent on distracting me. This went rather well. No occurrences while he was present and after he left a feeling of peace for me that I had not experienced here since moving in to my new office. Unfortunately, the facilities manager continues to look for employment elsewhere because of all of the occurrences he has had, he refuses to even share most of them with me saying he is still looking for logical reasons.

Well, as I stated, my office itself has calmed down and I have had no experiences in at least the last 10 days. The rest of the building(s) appear to still have something or someone plaguing them. Doors will still open and close and others have reported hearing voices. The security officer finds it fascinating. He likes to watch the doors on the security cameras. He has always checked each and every open and close, assuring that the building is not being broken into. He was not so happy the other day though after becoming locked in the garage for about 3 minutes.

It was very close to the end of the work day and he was making his rounds. He waved to me as he walked by my office. He carries a walkie talkie as well as a cell phone. He had been gone for about a half hour when the staff began noticing he had not returned from his rounds. We tried calling him on his walkie talkie, there was no response, just crackling noises. We tried his cell phone, it went right to voice mail. One of the maintenance workers and I decided to walk his rounds and locate him.

As we neared the garage at the end of what would have been his rounds, we heard knocking from the inside of the garage on the door. I used my master key and unlocked the garage door. The security officer was in there, knocking to get out. We asked him what had happened and why he was not responding on the walkie talkies and not answering his cell phone. He stated his cell phone had not rung, he removed it from his pocket and it was fully operational with a full signal. I told him to check his voice mails; sure enough there were a couple of messages from staff asking him where his was and if he was okay. He stated he could hear our voices coming through the speaker on his walkie talkie, and was responding. I advised him all we heard was static on the other end.

Apparently as he walked by the garage on his rounds, he could hear movement and voices from inside the garage. There are no windows and only 2 sided dead bolts on both the over head and side doors. Thinking perhaps it was someone from maintenance; he unlocked the walk through door just to check on things. As he opened the door he could still hear voices and movement but it was dark in there and hard to see. He reached over and flipped on the light. As he turned on the light the voices and movement stopped and the door slammed behind him. He did a quick look around the garage (not hard to do as the building is mostly empty space when none of the vehicles are in there). He saw no one or nothing out of order. He turned back to the door, using his master key, tried to unlock the door. He indicated the key would move and sound as if the door was unlocking, but it would not open. He repeated this process a couple of times and tried also to unlock the over head door, with the same results. He then tried reaching someone in the office by the same means we were trying to reach him, the cell phone and the walkie talkie. He indicated this went on for a bout 3 minutes until we arrived.

As we exited the garage we could hear this laughter, like at a movie or play, many voices laughing together. Then nothing. We headed back across the small lot to the office. He confided in me that this time made him uncomfortable.

I do think that the activity has been removed from my actual office, but not the grounds or building(s). As long as this remains harmless, what else can be done? The officers of the business refuse to acknowledge the issue. I can concentrate now and do not feel the fear and anxiety I did when "it" was in my office, so...

Thank you, MellMelon.
I do still endure some strange occurances at work, but not in my office, so there is some peace there.

The Facilities Manager has left his position, they are looking to hire a new one, but have not had any qualified applicants as of yet, he only left a few weeks ago.

Our security manager is much more catious on his rounds as well, but he seems to thrive on these... Occurances.

I will try to keep you posted.
God Bless!

I've read all of the stories about your work. They are really chilling and unexplainable. Do you know any of the history of the land that your office is on?
if anything else happens, I would really like to know about it!

Hello KimSouthO,
This is interesting, I wonder why they wanted the security guard (bless him for hanging on there while these things are occurring) out of the way or if they were just using him as another form of proof that they exist?
I think I need to check out the rest of these stories. Thank you for sharing them!

I agree with luvparanormal, Check the history of the building. It sounds like people once working there died, and they may think that they are still working there and still carrying out their tasks. Hopefully they have stopped in your office, the good thing being that other people will now start experiencing it until its undeniable. And either something will be done to fix this or everyone gets scared away which is what they want. Keep us updated

KimSouthO = Interesting, The site are full of spirits doing their pranks and they laugh as you witness. It's like when young adults do pranks to one another just for laughs. Believe me, it does scare when one does not see the prankster. That is what is happening. They like to see our actions, they play with our fear.
Take care

Kim,
Did you ever check the history behind the property and what happened there in the past or what was there before your building or even what was your building prior to you getting it? It would be interesting to know. Maybe that would explain a lot of the things that happen there.

Kim,
As a new member, I read this story first, and then had to go back and read the rest in the correct order. I am glad to hear that you have found some peace. I hope it continues and that hopefully at some point the management will finally realize that something needs to be done before all the employees are literally scared to come to work.
Take care and God bless,
Ozone ❤

Good thing for you that it is not in your office anymore. Maybe they got bored and wanted to move on to different parts of the building or maybe it couldn't get satisfaction on playing pranks on you or scaring you so it chose other people to pick on. Well, I think it's interesting as long as it remains pretty harmless and doesn't keep you or others from there work/duties. Good luck! Shelby ❤

Thank you to all who have replied.

As I continue to be 'expereince free'in my office, other events occur through the building. Not on a regular basis, but now and again.

It is not possible to complete a ceremony for the entire business, unfortunately. The entire area is completely secured after hours and the officers are certainly not willing to have anything done that may attract attention. (The neighbors might see! 😁 )

I believe the occurances are at a tolerable level here at this point, for me anyway. Ultimately I enjoy my position at this company, I believe we are doing some good here and I am not willing ot be chased away from here. I have worked very hard for the promotion and the position, I do not wish to be chased away.

I have not disclosed the location, nor do I feel I can do so. I could be putting my carrer in danger if I do so. As was pointed out by others, not everyone is open minded and accepting. I apologize if this is upsetting to anyone.

God Bless!

Kim, this is a great story, think I might go and read all your office stories! I think Bell made a good point maybe the FM may know something... Or maybe he is looking for a more competitive package- anomoly free? If I was the security gaurd I think I would bail. Have you ever told us the address (apx) of this very haunted site?

Dear KimSouthO,

It sounds like you have taken back some of your own power and was responsible in helping to rid yourself of your uninvited guest from your office. It is too bad the other uninvited guests were not banished from the garage area, but one can choose to live with it, continue to try everything to get rid of the problem or find another job elsewhere in more pleasant, ghostless surroundings. The ultimate choice and decision is always up to you.

Ghosts and spirits do like to go to those who present an opening or have a beacon that attracts such uninvited guests to visit, try to make contact or annoy the contactee.

I am always amazed when I meet people who swear they have not experienced a thing even though others in the same residence or place have had many ghostly or paranormal experiences. I do personally believe we have our part of responsibility of creating some of the things that happen in our life, and it is our full responsibility of how we will react to each life experience whether it be in our regular daily life or in a paranormal context.

I have no doubt in you that you will find the right resolve for yourself and your own personal happiness, be it at work or at any other place you reside.

Blessings, Abby

Hi Km. I wrote to you on your other story but somehow it didn't get through. I love reading your stories and I am happy for you that you can finally do your work in peace. I hope that the haunting does not come back to your office. I hope to hear from you soon and take care.

Hi Kim! You sure work in one spooky place! I'm glad you got some relief from your unwanted guests, now you just have to worry about walking down the halls or using the parking garage! Since it's a new building, I think it must have something to do with the history of the land. Did you ever find out if you could perform some kind of smudging ceremony or similar on the property itself? It's too bad the facilities manager is still leaving and not talking. Maybe he knows something relating to all of these occurrences, unfortunately he's not saying if he does. Good luck and make sure to let us know of any up-dates! 😊

So you are kind of stuck working in a building that is haunted. That is unless you can get the buildings officers to agree to have the placed blessed or smudged. Well at least you got the one in your office evicted. Take care Kim and keep us informed.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.

Hi KimSouth,

Wow, it seems like you still have spirits in your offices somewhere. I think a smudge ceremony, like Shane suggested, for the whole premises. That may help. Beyond that, try talking to the ghosts and asking them to "behave" since they seem to just be up to mischief. Maybe a Ouija Board session? It's a thought...

Blessings, Jeanne
