Ghost stories comments: Page 7

long time since update because nothing has really happened. The first day of spring came and he said "The mystery person is moving quickly now." He had his meeting with the counselor the next day, the counselor asked him about it and from what I understand he told her that "God says the mystery person isn't allowed to bother me anymore and God showed me how to get rid of the mystery people." He has been much happier, just a normal kid. He told me a few weeks after his counselors meeting that to get rid of the mystery people he tells them "God says you're not supposed to be here" and then they go back into the ground. A bit strange but I am not worried about this anymore he hasn't even mentioned seeing one for probably 6 months now. He still sees a counselor and all is good here.
I was very young when I had something like this happen. It still bothers me to this day. I was lying in bed but unable to sleep playing with a bell my head board was more like prison bars so I had my arms hanging through them just ringing my bell when something reached up and grabbed it from me. I've never forgotten the long fingers and nails. I was so scared I immediately tried to go to sleep. I looked for my bell and never found it. That incident is still stick in my mind
The photo: looks very much like a cat, or possibly small dog, has been caught mid jump / pounce and has blurred. πŸ€”

No one not even the church can tell you what you believe in. That has to come from within you or it will never be real. I understand hardships causing a crisis in faith - that doesn't reflect badly on you. For now, work on the things you do believe in like yourself and those you love. Actively do positive things for yourself to bolster your self confidence - exercising (endorphins are magic), a new class (anything from dancing to ceramics, you name it - something challenging) and maybe a self defense course etc bottom line something new interesting and a bit challenging. Surround yourself with meaningful items on your home - things that remind you of the good things in your life and that you are loved - family photos are great. Once you are in a secure and positive place within yourself (and that may take time and that's ok) then, maybe, you will be in a better place to reevaluate your faith - there is no rush.

Maybe this entity in your home is there to show you that you are not alone - that there is something more out there - something to believe in. I don't know, just a thought as his presence does not seem to be threatening. Trust your gut and believe in yourself and you will be fine ❀
Hi LostGirl! Awesome post! Thanks for sharing:)
When I was in the military we would all pile our combat boots on the sides of the bed in a orderly row, or outside the door/at the door- again all in a organised line. I don't know if this relates but it did get me thinking! Thanks again!
LuciaJacinta in Black Faceless Mystery
Your story is intriguing to me. I believe this as true. But it makes me question as to why so many things... Such as where this thing originated from the school or the house and why would it be at Walgreens lol... But seriously, I believe everything you wrote. It's been a while since this was written. Are there any updates to this story?

I wonder about the house. How long have you lived there? Any weird histories of the house or school?

Did you find out where the St Benedict's medal came from?

I have not written out my story yet, but I wanted to mention that it is a common practice for Catholics to bury St. Benedict's medals in the 4 corners of the house in the Earth. Is it possible that your son dug it up outside? Sometimes they do this to protect a house they feel may be cursed or some do it out of habit to prevent demons and such. Now, some do this inside their homes as well. Mentioning this because in our house which I felt was haunted I put medals inside rooms near doorways but often tucked them under things like under the rugs etc. I think I may have left a few when we moved that I placed inside. So I'm suggesting this is where one might have just appeared with your son. He may have found one that a previous person hid, or even in his school maybe someone hid one so these are very probable reasons where a St Benedict's medal could have appeared from.

Do any other kids at school see this?

The dates seem significant as well but scary that the thing can still get inside your thoughts during this time period.
Mavvey,

That's quite a story. Thank you for submitting it.

You have brought to mind the two questions I have when this sort of thing happens:

Who is it that watches over you (us) as you/we make our way through life?

Who is it that loves you (us) so much that they would do this for you (us)?

I don't expect you to have the answer, Mavvey, but I bet you would like to know. I know I want to know. Perhaps someone who reads this will know.

Welcome to YGS. I hope you enjoy the stories.

MrRiggs
I feel like guardian entities/spirits exist to do just this - give you a nudge in the right direction, show you what you're doing is right and so on... My experience isn't totally similar, but in ways it sort of is.

When I was in my younger teen years (12, 13ish) I'd walk our family dog down the street, into the park, and through a hole in the fence that seperated the park and train tracks. On the other side of the tracks was a creek, and my sisters apartment building a little ways up. My grandparents ALWAYS chastised me for wearing both my headphones when walking alone, and I never listened.

So that's what I was doing, listening to music and walking my dog to my sisters to say hi before heading back home for supper - it was near dusk, but it was still light enough out to see everything. I was just ducking through the hole in the fence when something grabbed my sweater. I freaked, and my dog began barking (at me cause I had screamed a little) because the park by my house was not only ALWAYS vacant but I didn't live in the safest part of town when I was younger... I felt like I was in danger.

But when I spun around, no one was there. I stood for a few moments, shaking it off and kept going. My one ear bud was out and I slowly pushed myself through the hole in the fence, eyes looking for someone or something - and as I went to head across the tracks, moving to pop my earbud back in I heard the loudest, most blood curdling scream call my name, of all things. (Mind you, my name isn't the easiest to pronounce so it couldn't have been a mistake.) I couldn't discern whether it was male or female, but it stopped me dead in my tracks.

That's when the train, literal seconds later flew by on the tracks. A bullet train, silent as death, you'd never hear it coming. It was the first one ever introduced to my area then, it was on its testing week. I had no idea, normally you can FEEL the trains in my town coming so it never bothered me to cross with my earphones in... But had that hand not pulled me back or that voice not called out for me, my dog and I would have been dead, no doubt about it.

I have never worn earphones in since then, and crossing train tracks gives me major anxiety now. But I'm alive, and to me that's all that matters.
Wow so freaky! I hope you get rid of this thing and find peace again. Thank you for sharing your story 😊
OMG I would have soaked my panties if I were in that situation as a child. I used to see shadow people when I was little but only ever heard them when I was about 12 and that scares the poop out of me. Not literally though thank god lol. Thank you for sharing your story 😊
Wow freaky story, thank you for sharing. If I were in your situation I would get an axe and chop the closet up into little pieces. Your story gave me chills and was entertaining 😊
Priya,
Thank your for your help. I will try to get my family to agree to a cleansing. I have tried to look up the history of my house, but not ever came up. And apparently when we first moved in my mom told any negative spirits to 'get out'. Thank you. 😊

Jubeele,
Yes my mom thought my brother, I only have one, was possessed: but she believes in the devil, not ghosts. So she thought that whatever was in the house had left. Note that this was before Red Eyes so it might be connected. And the journal is a good idea. That is actually where this is from; a goggle doc where I have been recording anything that happens. I shared it because things have gotten worse. I have been really sick on and off for over a year and a few weeks ago, when I was on a walk, I was told to 'go die' but I was completely alone. Thank you for your help. 😁
Bee_Beans,

Thank you for reading this account. It is so old now, I was surprised to see the name come up on my feed.

The intense pain of our loss has lessened, but not gone completely. Your condolences are still welcome, thank you.

Angel still 'visits' every now and then, though not as often as before. She usually makes her presence known by her perfume, or the smell of fresh-cut roses. I only heard her voice on one occasion.

Thank you for your comment, I appreciate it. 😊
EmmalineTexas in Tragedy2
Roopa - I'm so relieved to hear that you're all right. So many people on here have been worried about you. I'm so sorry that you felt that you had to take your own life. It sounds like you're okay so that is a good step. Thank you for posting your email as a way to reach you. You have many people who do care and want you to be happy and well. ❀

Please stay in touch.

I agree that dogs' sense of smell is incredible. Cadaver trained dogs can find human remains in all sorts of conditions through unbelievable layers of rubble etc. But these dogs are highly trained to recognize specific scents. I am uncertain that a regular untrained house pet would have such an intense reaction to the trace scent of ashes long gone.

And as the OP pointed out, that still doesn't explain the human reactions to the object.

Sad irony that the lady who acquired and was so intrigued by this little urn would soon need a similar vessel herself. Has activity around the urn changed at all since her passing? Perhaps it came into her life as a harbinger.

I am sorry for your loss and hope your family has been able to heal and find peace ❀
Chanced in My Friend Bill
GroundZero, this was an absolutely amazing account. As a military Veteran myself, I want to thank you for sharing this truly moving and incredibly well written story. I really felt like I was there with you, Bill and everyone else!
Reading this taught me a lot and helped me put many things into perspective about my own experiences. I found it easy to relate to your and Bills dreams of going to Australia... Plans like that where at times the strongest beacons of light during my service. I personally spent almost a year travelling South America when I finished my service.
I am sorry that you had to experience such a loss... I hope that Bill ultimately found peace.
Note to self: ALWAYS pay attention to the Empath warnings!

What a beautiful and sad post. My heart really goes out to you and your family. I'm glad that Angel is in a happy place.

Peace
Bee Beans - Thanks for your nice comment. Humanity encroaches on nature every day as unchecked overpopulation does its damage. Yet the spirits of the Earth still check in on us every once in awhile. Just remain open and receptive to the natural world around you. Who knows, you might have an encounter one day too.
Hi Bee Beans, yes I think that's possible. But after reading this experience again, I think Rook's comment is more likely. That the dog creature is a manifestation of something the OP needs to deal with.

Roopa in Tragedy2
Hi
Last month on December 2017 I again listened to voices and saw visions. I was very much disturbed. I went to see doctor. They gave tablets. I took some tablets. But I was very much disturbed so to take my life I ate 9 stepler pins and a bangle piece. My son gave banana to me after I told everyone what I did. I didn't go to doctor abt pins. Now I am working again and quite ok. I have come to the conclusion that there might be two or three worlds and people like my sons and husbands and also like me might exist parallely. I only don't want my husband and sons mixed up with them. My email id is rashmi.dayananda [at] yahoo.co.in If anybody wants to say something
I agree with Rook. It seems more likely that this was a nature spirit or elemental. Clearly it did not mean you any harm at the time. It must have been very scary, though!
Fariya in Woman On My Bed
It is possible that the thing has been already living in your hostel room but it didn't mean any harm to you. Maybe that thing had suffered from some heart break or unfinished love story, which is why after listening to your conversations with your bf, she would have felt hurt or that would have got her angry and that is why she was trying to do something!
Manafon, this post is beautiful and is definitely going into my favourites! I've never encountered any kind of nature spirit or entity but the idea of this fills me with peace.

Thank you.

Peace
Tweed, your comment about the dog protecting Ang90 got me thinking. Is it possible that this dog is protecting Ang90 from other spiritual entities that she cannot see herself? Just a thought.
Tweed, your calmness always fascinates me! In each of your posts you seem to react so calmly. I only hope that one day I will be able to match your serenity (no hope with the spider, I'm afraid. That REALLY would have freaked me out).

Thanks for all of your intriguing posts.

Peace.
Thanks for commenting Macknorton.

This is why I consider it to be more residual - I never felt anything sinister, nothing that happened seemed to interact with me especially... I would leave something somewhere and it would be moved when I returned, like the shoes and things in the drawers and cabinets.

It would be great to know why these things happen! Haha! If it takes energy to move things, like you said, it would make sense for an 'intelligent spirit' to move something I would really notice, perhaps when I was looking.

I still drive past the flat and wonder what the new tenant is making of it all.
Hi RCRuskin,

It was more of an assumption on my part, knowing the history of the place - it felt as if someone was tidying up after me, or putting my things in order.

I wonder if the sound of the measuring cups rattling was actually due to the cupboard door, from which they were hanging, being opened and closed.

I consider it to be more of a residual haunting rather than intelligent as nothing seemed to be particularly interactive with me. But without speaking to the spirit/whatever it was, I'll never know!

Thanks for commenting.
wwoo - sorry, I'm having trouble following what you say.

"...I live in a house where there are in the past much activities going on. I report the activities to our provincial bureau a number of times and have had the stories published..."

Do you mean there's a department within the government of British Columbia that specializes in paranormal research? Have they investigated your house/s and published their findings? Were the stories published in a book or is it possible to read them online?

"... Our paranormal society had contact University of Edinburgh about the cases that I have encountered for a visit to my home in Canada..."

The same as above, - does the university count with a department of paranormal research? Or did the Canuck PS contact a paranormal group based at the university but not affiliated to them?

It sounds like you have had numerous paranormal experiences through your life, do you think something could have followed you to Cebu City or do you consider yourself to attract spirits?
Since you are not superstitious, what makes you think that the number 4 could have some relevance to this story?

I ask too many questions, don't I?

Anyway, I ❀ Vancouver!
Macknorton in Horror Sleep Over
Hi Susanbrockerman

Thanks for sharing this rather unsettling account. I am curious about one aspect; you wrote:

"Later I found out a little boy 3 years old died there because his mother left him home alone with no food or heat and never came back. He was so scared he hid in the closet and that is where he died."

How much later was this that you discovered this and may I ask how and where did you discover this information?

Regards

Mack
Hi Kpshort73,

Thanks for sharing, very interesting. I LOVED this part:

"After my dad died, my sister told me that the house shook violently and they heard the sound of a train coming through. My great grandparents ran a train station right in front of the house in the late 1800's. The tracks were gone when my dad was a boy. My sister said she smelled coal outside a lot..."

Kind of residual haunting but amazing that there were multiple witnesses to verify it. That would have been incredible to experience, and if not a residual haunting, then a phenomenal amount of energy required to reproduce the sound and physical effect.

Regards

Mack
Well, this one is real conundrum and it begs the ancient philosophical question:

"Why did the chicken cross the dinner table?"
Macknorton in Soldiers Or Nurses?
Hi LostGirl

Thanks for sharing these experiences, very baffling. Tweed; LOL, that's a classic. Threads on the doors! I love it!

My family recently got a puppy and I find myself now instinctively picking up sandals and shoes off the floor. I'll probably be doing that for the rest of my life and into the spirit world too!

Those shoes are intriguing. I think we can safely assume based on years of research and eye-witness accounts from seemingly non-lunatic, sober folk that our spirit friends certainly appear to have the ability to move material objects, make them disappear and then reappear.

I am always fascinated by the randomness and seemingly pointlessness of these interactions. I assume it takes these souls some energy / force to be able to lower their vibrations sufficiently to move objects on our apparently sluggish plane of materialistic vibration.

For me the question is not so much "DID a ghost / spirit line up your shoes behind the door" but WHY? Imagine a fully-bodied person doing that. Well, Tweed has her personal reasons and possibly that's the same line of thought going on with this spirit?

I guess it's the old theory that someone connected to the flat / building has passed over, but is not really aware of their passing and continues "living" in the house, possibly seeing you as a spirit (intruder) as well, and is confused by your shoes?

If it's an attempt to unsettle you, well they could do that in a far more sinister way, or if it's an "attention" thing on the spirits part, then why?

Anyway, it's endlessly fascinating and your account was very well written and clear.

Regards

Mack
RCRuskin in Evil Or Not
Hi, Charlice.

Religion is an interesting subject... Not going to say it can cause more problems than it solves; that's really something people are exceptionally good at.

You mention hardships and medical issues. There could be something there that has attracted the attention of a spirit.
Hi, LG.

Details in your experience dissuade me from this being a haunting of folks going on about their life, as if still in a hospital. They, according to your comments, manipulated your possessions. Why would there be plastic measuring cups in a hospital ward, for example?
Macknorton in Attached?
Hi I Won't Tell

Thanks for sharing. I find your story interesting.

In terms of this soul / spirit being your "guardian angel", that depends largely on what you consider a "guardian angel" to actually be.

Another term for these guardian angels are "spirit guides" which is an individual who is attached to you through a mutual friendship and a tie / bond of love. These spirits apparently watch over us, guide us and care very much for us, and every single human being has at least one, no matter what, or so I have heard, and I find that easy to believe to be true. It makes sense; our loved ones still love us want to be around us as they did when they were "alive".

In my opinion, and based only on your choice of words, I would hastily suggest that this spirit is possibly not a guardian angel / spirit guide.

My conclusion is based on your comments:

(1) "...Now I'm no medium or super sensitive to energy, however I could just tell there was something wrong with it. My room in particular. I couldn't ever sleep peacefully because I had the strangest feeling that someone's standing at the foot of the bed..."

(2) Your room felt "wrong" and you could not sleep "peacefully"

(3) Your "witch" friend stating "That it was a spirit who didn't necessarily mean harm but I needed to be cautious nonetheless", and the "creepy part" whereby the spirit apparently stands very close and just watches you.

So the vibe I'm getting from you is that you are maybe a bit afraid, concerned, worried, possibly a bit frightened? So to ME that doesn't sound like a loving spirit guide / guardian angel but more like a lost soul (most likely unhappy) who for whatever reason is hanging around our Earthly plane, i.e: in your room.

You are most likely picking up on that unhappy / creepy "somethings wrong with my room" vibe from this unfortunate spirit.

Now, I certainly don't want to alarm you but I felt I needed to focus on the "guardian angel" angle that you brought and maybe help you with that aspect.

Best of luck, don't be afraid; they are only people just like us but with out a physical body.

Regards

Mack
wwooghostsub in Cebu City Ghost Revisted
In regards to lady-glow's query- I don't really feel much at all from this because I may be conditioned to spirits and poltergeist activities. I live in a house where there are in the past much activities going on. I report the activities to our provincial bureau a number of times and have had the stories published. Lydia, has also experienced different activities in her house (rented) in Ozamiz City. She is a stalwart individual, in all accounts, and she is not the type that would scream. I check all hotels before ever sending in my credit card number via Hotels.com. This place is relatively new and the girl (s) never had heard of any incidents. Finally, I am not a superstitious type, and neither is Lydia. I am a pharmacist (50+years) and believe in science. I believe I have some other sense that picks up on activities, on occasion, such as precognitive dreams.
As for Tweed's comments:
No it is not possible that the signs would be blown off. When we are cooking, we open the windows wide to air out the odour and never in the month that we stayed there did the signs blow off the table. The night that it "flew off", December 4th to be exact, the windows were closed. We close the windows every night because of safety and draft.
No, I am not superstitious of numbers at all. I worked 5 years with a company (Zellers Pharmacy) in store number 444. We stayed in the 4th floor in Manila, prior to arriving in Cebu. I have personally stayed on the 4th floor in Vancouver's Metrotown Holiday Inn for weeks on end. No 4 doesn't bother me at all.
Yes, the drawer is a roller type and I being very curious tested it to see if, in any way would open by a slight tug. The answer is no. I figured you need about an 8 ounce pull to open the drawer. The drawer never ever opened by itself, except on December 5 (1:30 am).
As I mentioned above, I have had a number of experiences with ghosts, and poltergeist activities. Our paranormal society had contact University of Edinburgh about the cases that I have encountered for a visit to my home in Canada. However, the University declined because they felt I have already disclosed the happenings to our society, and felt that the information was "contaminated", as they put it.
Biblio, I,m glad this youngster has found someone to talk to. It also seems that by talking to you it prompted him to talk to his family and now he has that support also. Good job my friend.
Thanks for commenting Tweed, I've read a lot of your stories, all so interesting!

It was a lovely flat but so cold during the winter months, could never heat the place properly (which is why I didn't say anything about cold spots etc haha).

It's interesting to think of the different reasons why shoes would be propped up against the door. Mine were in pairs, it seemed very orderly, it was quite a stiff door to move so I hadn't opened it fully when I sort of side-stepped into the room and noticed my shoes lined up behind the door.

It's always comforting to have little habits validated 😜
rookdygin in Evil Or Not
(Hi Tweed 😁)

Charlice,

A few things that should be checked to ensure what you are experiencing is indeed paranormal are...

High EMF throughout the house: Individuals sensitive to EMF often say it makes them feel like they are being watched or followed (You mention things only happen in your home...)

Objects moving: Your profile says you are a teenager... Does this mean 13-14 0r 18-19 (or any age in between)? I ask because the objects moving may...MAY...just be happening because of telekinetic outbursts from your developing mind/body. Especially if you are going through puberty... Or possibly just very strong emotions that you are having 'issues' expressing.

Check the history of the house... Did it always belong to the lady your family bought it from and her family? What happened 'in or around' the home? This may give you clues to who the spirit might be. Remember, rule out everything normal/natural first.

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.

Respectfully,

Rook
There're two points missing from your narrative:
- what you felt during the experience
- Lydia not screaming in terror when the objects flew off the table, -we women must scream, don't we? 😜

As for the number's meaning, well... Once a person is superstitious, they will believe whatever wrong to fulfill their feared expectations.

Have you read the reviews on the hotel? Has anyone reported something similar to your experience?
This makes me want to watch Being John Malkovich again.

Is it possible the moving blankets, whilst in bed, blew the signs off the table? I mean hotel rooms are pretty cramped.

Ohhhh December 4th, 4 being superstitious to some. Eehh, yeah.
What kind of drawer was it? Modern roller style, push open?

I don't know about this.
Tweed in Evil Or Not
Hi Charlice,

This is as valid experience as any other, don't berate yourself.
Are you aware of cleansing and shielding? This can be done on yourself, objects and your home. Here is a tried and tested method heaps of us here use:
Http://www.yourghoststories.com/user-profile.php?user=8155
(scroll down to 'Home Cleansing'. The ritual won't banish good and true ghosts, only troublemakers. It will also help calm the energy in your home.

Do you know who the ghost could be? The husband of the woman who lived there perhaps? Or someone who knew them?

As for religion, that decision should come from you. No one can tell you what to believe in, it's a personal path which is unique to us all. Religion/spirituality, or any belief system shouldn't be rushed towards out of fear. Although it (religion/beliefs) should be a source of comfort and sanctuary. Whatever brings you that.
Tweed in Attached?
Hi Won'tTell,

Yeup, I was thinking a guardian type ghost. Perhaps there was something about that apartment complex which provoked this being to hang around you more. Maybe you needed protecting in your bedroom at that time. It may have been tuned into you before then and you'd just not noticed, because there was no need to.
I wonder if your Witch friend was able to communicate with this ghost while he touched your chest? Maybe that's how he could describe your room, the ghost filled him in!
Just a few thoughts.

Thanks for sharing, enjoyed this.
Hi there LostGirl,

Loved reading this, reminded me of getting my first flat. No high ceilings or Tudor themes unfortunately. Sounds like an ace place.

The door thing with the shoes is something I do, so I'm surprised to read about it here. For reasons of pure anxiety, perhaps brought on by being brought up with a herd of cats who urinated everywhere (!), as an adult I now put a pair of shoes against the closed bedroom door before going to bed. So I know if the door's been opened while we're asleep. I have NO reason to do this, but its something I'm compelled to do, going on ten or more years. I also put thread in the front and back doors. Jeesh I'm a weirdo, seriously typing this out makes me want to slap myself!

Anyway so I can't help but wonder if your ghostie at the flat had a similar idea. Don't know why they'd do it with a whole lot of shoes though.

There was a custom at hotels in bygone years where shoes were left outside the hotel room door to be cleaned overnight, ready for the next day. But your ghostie put them inside the bedroom door, weird!
Were your shoes bunched against the door in the appropriate pairs or were they more jumbled up and random? Not that it makes much difference, just curious.

Thanks for sharing, adding this to my faves. Nice to know I'm not the only one putting shoes against the bedroom door. What the heck?! LOL
Melda and Manafon,

Agree, nasty, spiteful and loves the rush of doing something naughty and getting away with it.

They still have a ways to go to be judge and jury as these people are known - only the executioner is hooded.

One day a real life challenge will teach them humility and what's really important in life. Amen.

Rex-T
Manafon - I agree with you. Probably just some nasty, spiteful individual who more than likely posts a load of rubbish on YGS and subsequently gets his/her comments closed.

I had to get the whole situation off my chest because it has been happening for a while and was starting to annoy me intensely. My rant is now over and life continues 😊

Regards, Melda
Lady-glow,

I'm inclined to agree with you.

If there is no reasonable hope for the patient to be returned to an acceptable quality of life, the exercise may be pointless and unnecessarily painful to all concerned.

Needless to say, I do not wish to bring about death prematurely.

Close consultation with the medical professionals should be helpful in making a sound decision.

This person is 80 years old and in naturally declining health. Prior to this condition developing we had no expectation of her having a bright future with many years to live. This illness is severe enough that there may be no need to make a choice.

Today's developments indicate a slight improvement.

If she can be returned to the life she knew, we welcome it. If this is her end, we accept it and will make the appropriate choice. It would be cruel folly to let her linger pointlessly.

Thank you for your input and taking time to write. Shared wisdom is always welcome.
MrRiggs - in my opinion, many times keeping a patient in life support is nothing more than prolonging their agony.

It's sad, but letting go is part of life.
Thank you, ladies, for the kind words.

The most recent medical assessment shows slight improvement. That is a significant upgrade from the initial expectation of not surviving the first night of hospitalization, or the emergency surgery. During that surgery she was nearly lost three times. The outcome of all this is unpredictable.

We will do all we can by making the best choices possible.

A lesson I learned long ago was that people generally make the best decisions they can with the information available at the time. A new day may bring new information and decisions or choices may need to be revisited and reassessed. In general, I avoid second guessing my decisions.

That bit of information, along with $5.00, will get you a decent cup of coffee almost anywhere.

Somehow it seemed appropriate to toss that in as a lesson learned.

EmmalineTexas in Choices Of Life And Death
Mr. Riggs - I'm so very sorry that your family is going through this. It's not easy to make the best decision for the person that you love so much. I've been in your shoes and all you can do is thank God for the time that you have with them, however long it is. Prayer and gratitude help to keep you together even when you face a potential loss. There are guides and they will not let you down. Again, I'm so sorry.

MrRiggs - I can't express how very sad I am to hear you are going through this. Please know that I am in your corner. I support you no matter what your choices are. Please also know that I will pray for you and yours to ride out the storms that are blowing through your live. Much love to you and yours.

Maggie
Less than 72 hours ago a family member who stayed with us during Christmas was hospitalized. The following morning she had emergency surgery due to a very severe infection of the stomach and intestines.

Getting directly to the point of this message, it may be necessary to make the decision to remove her life support.

A meeting with her medical staff should help determine if her condition is survivable, and what quality of life is expected should she make it through treatment.

There is a choice to be made. If there is no reasonable expectation of survival we will remove life support. I regard this decision as a humanitarian necessity and a pragmatic option.

As it stands as of this writing, she will never live independently again. Her most likely option is to be placed in a nursing home. She will now have a colostomy bag, be on kidney dialysis, and has lost her ability to walk. Her internal organs (kidneys, liver etc.) are nearly disfunctional.

I personally heard her ask "How much longer will this go on?" when she was with us during the holidays. She said that after walking 15 feet and being helped up two stairs.

I do not send you this, Maggie, to open an old wound. I share this with you because life happens and illness and death occur. Decisions must be made.

In a previous response to you I said you are not a murderer. When illness or injury make the continuance of life impossible, and competent medical professionals are present, ending life support is a reasonable choice.

Depending on what the doctors have to say, and in concurrence with the rest of the involved family members, we are about to make that choice. I have no qualms about making the right choice, whatever that might be. I feel not the slightest guilt should it be the best choice to remove life support.

I was in your corner before and I'm in your corner now. This time it is my finger on the trigger.

Live your life, Maggie, let the wound heal. There is no guilt in making the right choice.

Melda - As I wrote, often negative karma points are given for no discernible reason. I just received two for a comment on one of Ghosthunter's stories. I have no doubt one was from GH herself but the other one does suggest some little pud is making the negative karma point rounds.

It's probably the only action they can think of that will get any attention. And if that's what "action" has come to mean in their existence... Well it kind of speaks for itself. One can imagine the "karma dealer" visualizing themself astride a mighty steed, meting out justice as he/she sees fit. Judge, jury executioner. When in reality they're a lonely pud at home alone on a Saturday night on their ipad.
Hi, Shy.

I have a somewhat similar skill with bees only. They don't mind me much, which worked well when my parents had a massive infestation in the attic and someone had to climb into the hive to set off bug bombs...

An interesting ghostly experience. Are the girl and cat connected somehow? Probably, or probably not.

Have you seen either the cat or girl at other times? Has your cat seen anything else?

Gigakhan - I'm sorry to tell you, but... You have fell into the trap of GhostHunter's tale.😟

This story is based on facts historically inaccurate and is the product of a very active imagination.

Melda - Being a troll is the last refuge of those too ignorant to add anything intelligent to a conversation. Don't let the trolls get you down. They have a short attention span and people give them a giant heave like Uncle Phil did on Fresh Prince. Yeah, that visual. And karma is a biatch. ❀
Emma
MackNorton - Thanks for your response. I absolutely agree with you that a healthy debate is what is needed.

The irritation which I am feeling here does not only concern me personally. Other people have been targeted as well and they don't deserve it. They haven't made any contentious or nasty comments at all.

My deduction? There is a "nasty" at work on the site and the sooner he/she disappears the better.

Regards, Melda
lady-glow - Thanks for your kind comment. I love your cool calculation, wittiness and sense of humour 😊

Manafon - I just have to love you! I mean that in a very good way. All you have to do is mention George Harrison, my favourite Beatle, to get my senses rolling forward and outward. I remember telling you once before that GH was my favourite Beatle and you told me that he was yours as well 😊

Personally, as far as the karma points are concerned, I can handle the negative ones when I deserve them. I have deserved some recently. What annoys me is that somebody is going around targeting perfectly innocent people who haven't passed any offensive remarks. This isn't only about me, it affects others as well.

Thanks for your welcome response.

Regards, Melda
Emmaline - As stated in my previous comment on Gh0sthunter's story, I would like to respond to you individually.

It isn't about my down votes in general, it's about the troll who goes around doing that. I deserved some of my down votes on Maggie's story but a number of others didn't deserve them on other story threads where they weren't being confrontational at all.

I'm not going to close my YGS account, perhaps just hibernate for a while. Then again - I've been known to change my mind in a flash and I'm a Virgo? Blast those star signs, mine doesn't suit my purposes😁

Good morning! (In SA it is now 07:43). I didn't expect all the responses I received and will reply to them individually on your own most recent accounts.

This is after all Gh0sthunter's story thread.

Gigakhan in Witch Hunt
Gh0stHunter, yes it seems to me that you and your friends nearly fell into the trap of the spirit. She snickered because she was looking forward to do whatever to you and your friends. I believe if you had gone into the darkness that night, something worse would have happened. My advice... Stay out of cemeteries after dark... Trust me, I learned the hard way.
Jubeele in Witch Hunt
Puff (aka Rook Dygin), I thought I heard you calling us back. My heartfelt thanks for the lovely music. Yes, I will have that last Moondance with you. You've warmed my soul and restored my faith.

Melda, dear Melda. My dear Big Sister. Your steadfast friendship has helped me so much in those months when Rex-T was in hospital. Take comfort that you're much loved by us all. It's sad that all this negativity has been generated and I grieve at the hurt this has caused.

But this too shall pass...

Our loving wishes to you all

Hi Melda
Don't fixate on "karma" points.
Just get your honest opinion across in as a constructive way as possible. We all have our own methods on doing that.

There will ALWAYS be people who do not see the world in the same way as you, or agree with your personal philosophy on life and spirits etc but that's what makes life interesting in my opinion.

I enjoy a healthy robust debate but maybe people who are simply inarticulate have real trouble expressing themselves and therefore find the only way to argue / make their point is to down vote someone?

Regards
Mack

Melda - your input and your opinion will always be worthier than their pettiness.

Melda - I hope you don't mind me adding my two cents. You wrote that, "This forum is no longer what it used to be". I would suggest it is. There are always periods on YGS when there seems to be a flurry of downvotes. I think just about anyone who's been on this site for an extended period of time has received negative karma points that seem completely out of the blue and unfounded. I have certainly received my share of 'em!

As the late great Lemmy once sang, "Don't let the bastards grind ya down". The people who have been your friends here are still your friends. As George Harrison once sang, "All things must pass", and this recent negative activity is bound to as well. Keep on keepin' on Melda.
EmmalineTexas in Witch Hunt
Melda - I hope that you don't decide to leave YGS. This is a forum for discussion and we shouldn't feel the need to censor ourselves. As long as comments are made respectfully, I thought that was the point of having member posts. When I post on here, I fully expect some people to see things a different way and if we don't agree then that's fine. Different life experiences, difference in religion and in cultural background. I hope that you don't see this as me butting in. I mean it as a support to you and sympathy for being down arrowed. I personally would never do it unless someone was intentionally provoking conflict. Anyway... Just my two cents and I do hope that you stay.

Thank you,
Emma
Hi MaggieMay,

I've enjoyed reading your experiences, especially this one because I'm ruled by my nose. Utterly obsessed with smell. 😊
I can relate to much of what you describe. As LMelb says, like empath skills, but with the nose leading the way. I knew there was a name to this, and MrRiggs has found that, so happy days.

I think you'll enjoy this experience by one of the mods, Granny. 'Enjoy' doesn't seem like the appropriate word, 'appreciate' would be better. It's a sad and moving experience. But one I think may help you.

Tweed - You always come up with something worth thinking about. I think I know the poster you're referring to but don't know much about her. I didn't get the impression that she was nasty or aggressive. (Not sure whether we're talking about the same individual but we probably are - first four syllalbles identical)

When I say I don't know what I'm doing on YGS anymore, I seriously mean that. This forum is no longer what it used to be and what inspired me to join.

There honestly is somebody (or perhaps more than one person) going around down voting a few posters. I don't know the reason for this but it seems to be very selective.

I posted some bad comments recently and deserved to be down voted. I have now learnt that when it comes to matters of "principle", I need to take a back seat.

Thanks for your response, I appreciate it 😊

Regards, Melda
Tweed in Witch Hunt
Melda, I know you say you've said some things that may provoke a downvote or two. But I can't think why anyone would. You always communicate your opinions in a balanced fashion, regardless of who does or doesn't agree. So the idea of someone out to get you is hard to fathom.

I don't know if you've ever seen/read me letting someone have it. But it's ended with them deleting their account on a few occasions. It's calculated and timed on my part. I get a lot of downvotes. I get off on it.

The last couple of weeks I've noticed a new member with a name similar to yours. I don't remember this name, but I've mistaken them for you a couple of times. Perhaps your downvoter is mistaken identity. Just a thought. I have no idea what the other poster is like, and I'm not implying they're nasty/deceitful etc, I really have no idea. Only know there's another screen name on here similar to your own. 😊

To add a general, blunt and *constructive* observation in my absence this board appears to have become somewhat of an off topic tea party. That's all well and good, but I can understand why this might annoy some of the regulars who use the site for paranormal topics, not recipe ideas.
Melda in Witch Hunt
Rook - Thank you. What is irritating me is that a few people have been targeted recently and I have gone along removing negative votes where they don't belong. I am not only speaking for myself but for others as well.

If it gives the troll a good night's sleep then so be it.

Regards, Melda
rookdygin in Witch Hunt
Melda,

Considering I am the individual who placed the up vote my guess is one of two things have happened...

Either

A: Someone tried to give you a second positive vote and hit the wrong arrow (I have managed to do that before)

OR

B: For whatever reason someone really did not like the comment.

OR

C: Someone is 'out to get you'. Not that the Karma Points matter. Good comments stand on their own whether people like them or not.

So, don't sweat the small stuff... πŸ˜‰

Respectfully,

Rook

GhOstHunter, I'm afraid,
Is no more.
Now his name is BookHunter.

And cannot answer
To our questions
'cause he's roaming
Through the long Texas's roads
In search of evidence,
If not a book,
At least a pack
Of rabid wolves.

They say he's pure and innocent,
A magnet for spirits
I say naive and gullible
My friends, we are not.

Gosh! That moonshine is strong, one sip was enough to make me give a try to writing poetry.
Sorry.😝
Melda in Witch Hunt
Trolls abound. Please stop this. I don't mind receiving negative points when I say stupid things but now I'm seriously starting to wonder what I am doing on YGS. Ten minutes ago I had a plus karma point for my comment to Rook and now it has disappeared.

Believe me when I say I'm not hooked on the plus points but to remove them for a sinister motive? I have noticed this happening to a few posters recently. They are down voted on perfectly reasonable comments. Whoever you are - get the hell off of YGS - you don't belong 😠 Now give me another negative, TROLL!

Regards, Melda
Melda in Witch Hunt
Rook - I couldn't help myself, just had to reply to you! I actually jumped up from my chair and started singing bad moon rising and dancing! Oh wow - That song is going to stick in my mind for many days. One of my big time favourites when I was young 😁

Puff, I think Fergie's witblits got to you. You looked as though you were halfway to the moon and hanging onto something when I spotted you in the hot tub. Sheets I think. Then again, only two sheets and I believe there are three...

MMMMMmmmm POTSTICKERS...Yummy! 😁

"Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love..."

(Moondance By Van Morrison)

Gh0sthunter,

We await your arrival and hope you bring evidence to prove us wrong, but until then...

"I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin'
I see bad times today

Don't go 'round tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise..."

(Bad Moon Rising By Creedence Clearwater Revival)

Puff (aka Rook Dygin)
So these 'visits' started sometime in 2014?

Please start a Journal (or have your sister do so)... Sorry its just that they are an easy way to document what is happening, when it happens and who it happens to. To include weather conditions, the feelings of those who experienced the occurrence AND the general 'feeling' with-in the home.

More details equal better 'trouble shooting'. It may be as simple as 'Great Granddad' is appearing as he last remembers himself looking physically, and as a cancer victim this may be a very scary way for him to appear to a 3/4 year old... Have your sister say something out loud the next time this happens...

'Grandfather, you are scaring your great granddaughter, please stop. We do not mind your visits, but she is scared of what she 'see's or is feeling.'

Another thing... A home cleansing/shielding may help the situation. Positive/Good spirits/entities should be ok but any negative/malevolent spirits will be pushed out... If present activity may increase before cleansing/shielding take effect... Repeat as needed.

I have one posted on my profile, or you can find plenty on the internet. Thanks for sharing.

Respectfully,

Rook
This is totally scary. I am glad that the thing didn't harmed you.
sheetal in Hard Letting Go!
This really broke my heart. Loosing our parents is the hardest thing to bear. May his soul rest in peace.

P.S. I suggest you to do meditation for calmness of mind or you should do vipassana course. This will really help you.:)
This must have been a terrific experience. Do you still go to that house?
Really enjoyed this story. I am just wondering that if any one else encountered her.
Cole_Harris in My Niece's Dinner Show
RCRuskin, that's why I starting posting to this site. I'm concerned that what might be happening in this house (some of which is described in my other posts), could be having an affect on my niece; and I want to keep her safe.
Rex-T - Thanks for the update. Here's a toast to Arthur, wherever he might be. (Hopefully not your internet troll)

Regards, Melda
All,

This is like a postscript to this encounter.

We did a 'drive by' of Jubeele's new work location today and surprised ourselves as to how close to 'Arthur's' house it is!

The house looks so different (not as dark as it once was). We paid our respects to Arthur with an Aussie style 'Gidday Mate' and drove on happy in the fact that some old houses don't get bulldozed and turned into car parks. 😊

Now where did the bus go? Whoops, different story.
Rex-T
Jubeele in Witch Hunt
Val, I love how you put everything back into perspective! ❀ There are far more important life-and-death matters to worry about. Life's too short to dwell on such things.

Rex-T took me out for retail therapy today. Shopaholic bliss. I've also brought extra supplies of pot stickers for all. We have a Korean, as well as a Chinese grocery store. They stock different types of frozen dumplings, all ready to be steamed or fried. I usually steam first, then pan-fry them. Soft and chewy on top, then crispy on the underside.

Melda, we all have those "oops" moments. If I've offended anyone in the past, it wasn't intentional and I apologise unreservedly to all. Fergie, that moonshine is seriously potent <hic>. I think I see lady-glow over there, or is it 3 lady-glows? 😡
sheetal in Trapped
This is quite scary, and I can understand how much it was hard to go through with this. I am glad that nothing has happened further.
Melda in Witch Hunt
Val - You're spot on. I know I definitely deserved minus points on two of my remarks. If I could take back those comments, I would. Unfortunately I feel pretty strongly about that subject and allowed my heart to govern my intelligent thinking. Not a big deal anymore for me but I understand why I annoyed a few people.

Regards, Melda
lady-glow in Witch Hunt
Moonshine?... I prefer to call it moonglow! 🍹

Yikes... My bodysuit is almost ripping at the seams... After having all that delicious food you might have to call me lady-balloon!🎈
Melda in Witch Hunt
Fergie - You had me reeling with the witblits and I hadn't even had a shot yet, only smelled it. I see Puff in the hot tub swigging down shots of the stuff. Anybody else with a driver's license? Oh my word, I see a lady glowing in the distance, over and above her usual glow. Please don't let her drive 😁

Regards, Melda
valkricry in Witch Hunt
Jubeele - you've had me craving pot stickers SO badly, I actually ordered some delivered for lunch from a new place. I actually haven't had any in about 10 years. Why? You ask, knowing my weakness for them. Because where I live, well the Chinese/Oriental food served up is a lot like going to Taco Bell and expecting real Mexican food. Just not happening. But the ones I got today weren't too bad. YAY!
Guys, don't sweat the karma points. Unless you're collecting enough that your comment gets hidden, just ignore it. If you ARE getting that many negative 'votes', maybe you need to rethink what you said.
Rex-T in Witch Hunt
Fergie,

I suspect that your burning ears picked up on Big T-Rex thinking that he might go to your place and clean up any bad people.

However after last night, I've decided to keep T-Rex close to deal with any negative tooth fairies.

I'll still be cruising the site and you know how to contact Jubeele.

Big T-Rex is looking forward to some white lightening.

Rex and Jubeele
Assuming grandpa came to visit, there's hardly anything sinister, though understandable that you'd feel discomfort. These things happen, but, experiences on this site aside, they don't seem to be all that common. (Or are just something we don't notice?)

It's the night terrors that alarm me more. Not sure what the connection between the two events could be, but my gut tells me there is a connection. In which case, it was not grandpa visiting, but something masquerading.
Fergie in Witch Hunt
My ears are burning, did someone call my name?

Oh wow! Another party? It's a long time since I have been on troll patrol on the Miss Demeanor.
Jubeele, Rex T, Melda, good to see you here. Is that Val and Lady Glow I see over there? I thought I saw Roy and Babygoatpuller a moment ago. Is Puff in the drivers seat or the hot tub? That guy moves like greased lightening.
Speaking of lightening, I brought some "wit-blits" (white lightening) this time - similar to 'moonshine'. Who wants to be a dare-devil?
Its wonderful to have you back, Biblio! I'd missed the depth your comments add to our discussions. Glad to hear that all is well if a bit unusual. Glad too that Jim has someone to confide in and supportive parents - such an awakening would be terrifying to go through alone.

Welcome back!
Mack-
I forgot to add something else- I didn't take the bed with me when I moved from there, my partner and I used his double bed in our new home. The bed went into my mother's basement storage room so I don't know if it would've fallen in our new place or not. To my knowledge it's still in her basement or she's sold it in a yard sale by now, I haven't asked her.
Mack-
It was just a basic single bed, metal frame, and the way it came apart was the metal struts? I guess you call them that? Anyway, the 3 metal pieces that stretch horizontally under the box spring to support the mattress were moved. Not exactly moved, just kind of nudged out of true so the bed wouldn't collapse immediately, just after I was asleep and moving in my sleep caused them to slide further out of place.
My dad put the bed back together for me and was getting a bit miffed when it fell because he knows he assembled it correctly. He was going to drive screws into it to hold it together and I told him to just leave it, that I would sleep on the sofa- bolting the metal bars in like that would make it unnecessarily more difficult to take it apart. Remember, I was only living there temporarily until my partner and I found a more permanent place. Sleeping on the sofa wasn't a big deal so I abandoned that stupid bed.
