More Strange Things At The Museum on 2008-08-05

I have written a few stories about my work in the local museum and the strange things that happen there. Since then the activity has picked up. I have been keeping a record of the activities trying to see if there is a pattern or explanation that I hadn't noticed before. These are some of the things...

The Haunted Homestead on 2008-07-02

This is one more story connected to the museum I work at, although it doesn't take place at that site. First though, I'll give a little history of the area to help put this story in context. My hometown was settled by Irish immigrants in the 1840's. Back then there was a lot of hatred between Ir...

At The Museum 2 on 2008-06-16

I wrote earlier about my job in the local museum. If you haven't read that story, it would be a good idea to do so now, just to get an idea of the layout of the buildings, and to know what has happened so far. A few days after I had written my last story, I was sitting at my desk in the office bu...

At The Museum on 2008-06-09

At the beginning of May I was offered what is to me, a dream summer job. I'm working in my town's museum, giving tours, working with the artifacts, that sort of thing. Absolutely perfect for a history lover like me. The museum is three small buildings. The first building is very small, just one room...

My Grandpa on 2008-05-26

My Grandpa was an amazing man and we were always very close. He always did everything humanly possible to make life good, first for my mother and uncles, than for me and my brother. When I was little he would always take me on long walks that would always seem to end with a trip to a park or ice cre...

Haunted Childhood on 2008-05-12

Growing up it seemed to me that a lot of strange things happened around me, especially in my house. The first really strange experience I had was when I was four or five years old. I was lying in bed, unable to sleep, when I heard a woman start to sing a lullaby. I sat up and looked around, but my r...

If the same thing always happened at the same time it was probably just a "residual haunting." There's no intelligence there, it's just a memory repeating itself. I wouldn't be to worried about demons or evil. 99% of the time what seems to be "evil" is just someone who was a jerk in life being a jerk after death.

I think what happened in your old house and this are completely unrelated. Before it sounds like you experienced a real intelligent haunting (as opposed to a residual one). As for whatis happening now, I'm going to say something that people usually hate to hear. I don't think you're being haunted. Having someone you care about hurt can be very traumatic, and if it was an intentional attack that makes it much worse. Everything you describe is normal for what you've gone through. I suggest going back to your priest or someone you trust and talking about it more. If things keep up or get worse come back here and post, and someone more knowledgeable about ghosts then I will be able to help you.

I understand that you would want someone to tell you it wasn't imagination, but only you know for sure what you heard. I personally believe you, especially since you were so familiar with the place.
I agree with Tonith on this one. This seems to be more an emotional problem. I am curious about the exorcism you say they had. Was it a true exorcism or just a blessing of the house? I'm asking because the church doesn't just perform one everytime someone claims a haunting. If it was an exorcism the priest should still be in contact with them and they should let him know what's going on.

Why were you and your friend in a school after hours if you were only 7? Were your parents there?

To me this sounds like deppression or maybe bipolar disorder. The manic highs where you are angry and obbseivley writeing and the lows where you don't do anything like that are really glaring symptoms. You really need to go to a doctor. I have bipolar, so these symptoms are all relly familiar.
Hey ghostseer. I got a really strong feeling from this story, which, for me, is very rare. I got the sudden image that this creature was a manifestation of the bad things that were going on. Not a demon or ghost per say, but just a physical form of the anger and pain that happens there. Maybe as well as praying for yourself and family, you could pray for your neighbours? Now, this might all be wrong, but its so strange for me to get feelings like this I felt I should share it.
As for the dreamcatcher my understanding is that they help only with dreams. All my life I have had one or two above my bed and I can honestly describe every nightmare I have ever had since there's been so few.
Hope this helps.

I have to say I agree with Tonith. Since its all happenning in the early hours after you've just woken up, it could be connected to dreams.
Another thing to consider is that you might have a poltergiest. Are there teens in your house? That can often cause manifestations like this. Annoying but essentially harmless.
The ones with your new recorder sounded clearer to me, but unfortunatly I was able to make out what any of them where saying. I would love to find out what you think they're saying.

To me this sounds like Allen wanted to say good bye and maybe have one last look at a house (and people!) he always liked. I like stories like this because its not "Ooh, scary monster!" but just a sweet experience. Thank you for sharing it.

That is a beutiful story hobbyholly. I agree with the others who say it was probably your Grandfather. I firmly believe that our loved ones can come back to comfort us if we need it.
On another note, I have been reding stories on this site for a long time (though I don't comment much) and you are one of my favorite contributers. Ill miss reading your stories and input.
I hope your wedding goes wonderfully 😁

Great story treasureseekers, really well written. I have heard the story of Anne and the mill lots of times, but I have never heard of the other ghosts there. This province of ours has some pretty good hauntings, doesn't it?
Others who have written here have already given good ideas on how to deal with anything paranormal in your home, so I'm going to mention some possible "normal" explanations.
You spoke about the positive and negative thoughts. I find that if I'm tired or stressed it can be very hard to stay positive and bad thoughts seem to come into my mind a lot easier.
The fear you described you felt for your sister sounds like an anxiety attack. Lots of people have them occasionally (I get them quite often) and you have a reason for it (paranormal activity and a sick loved one) if it just happened the once don't worry about it. If it starts to happen a lot go to a doctor to make sure its not something physical.
One thing that helps with worries is to talk about them (cliche but true) so tell your parents if you worry about your sister or anything else and they can probably help to reassure you.
If there is a ghost or spirit in your home it doesn't seem like it means you or your family any harm.
I hope your sister is feeling better and things calm down at your place.

Hi Kim. I enjoyed reading your story, but I wish it could have been a pleasanter experiance for you. I have to say, though, that I get the impression that you had two seperate things going on. The laughing woman sounds nasty, like she just wanted to scare you. (Id be terrified if I ever heard something like that) However, whoever or whatever blocked the wind for you seemed to be doing something nice. I'm not sure how cold it gets in Nebraska, but up here the winter wind can be quite nasty, so I think anyone who would block it for you would be trying to be nice/helpful.

Hi montrealaj, I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your aunt.

Birds seem to be a sign of death in many cultures. Sometimes they have to be doing something in particular (like trying to enter a house) other times you just have to see them. I have heard stories from tribes on Canadas west coast that the owl can be a sign of death. They say that you can hear the owl say your name and that means you will die soon. I have also been told that the number of crows you see will mean different things and 3 crows (I think) means death. I think this comes from England but I'm no sure. So depending on what your culture is/where you are from, birds mean different things.

On a non paranormal side, in my area of Canada it is quite normal to see hawks on power lines and telephone poles. It gives them a good view of their territory, especially if all the big trees have been cut down in the area. Its possible that hawks are always around and you are just noticing them more when you are worried about someone you knows health.

I didn't read the other comments so sorry if I repeated anything already said. I would be interested in hearing more about your and your families experiances.

The people who have posted before me have said much of what I was thinking, much clearer then I would be able to. But I would like to share two stories that show my feelings about faith and religion.
The first happened about 8 years ago. My father was very sick. My family are all Christians except for an aunt and uncle on my mothers side who are Hindu. They became adopted family after they immigrated from India. When my auntie was told about dads illness she said she would pray for him, even though they wouldn't be the type of prayers we knew. My Grandma told her "Our prayers are different, but in the end its the same God who hears."
The second story happened last year at my Grandpas funeral. My aunt and uncle were in India at the time and unable to make it back, so another couple came to represent the Indian community. This elderly couple had never even been inside a Christian church before. After the service they came up to my mother and me and said that, as they hadnt known what to do during the service, they had just sat in the pew and said prayers for my Grandpa. My mom told them much the same thing that my grandma had said 8 years earlier.
In the end I feel much like the older generations of my family. I do believe in God, but I think leading a good life, being kind, and helping others is much more important to Him then the way you pray. But, let's face it, its something we'll only know for sure after we're dead.
That was interesting. The little tune sounds familiar to me but I just can't place it. Thats going to bug me now. Anyways I always really enjoy reading and listening to what you post. If I am able to figure out/remember the name of the music Ill let you know.
Hi Frawin. I always like reading your stories. I bet it was your Dad letting you guys know he was home for Christmas. As an aside, 15 kids! That must make for some fun family get togethers!

I don't know if you were possesed or not that night, but to be honest there are other parts of your story and reply that seem more worrying. First off, if you're feeling sad or depressed, don't go out drinking. Alcohol is a depressant and it will make you feel worse. Second in your reply you said you don t like to look in the mirror cause you think what happened was your fault. It wasnt. You shouldnt be ashamed or upset with yourself. Finally, since you said you think about cutting and suicide, I strongly encourage you to see a doctor and get help. I'm saying this as someone who had to go through all that crap to. You deserve to live your life happy and without fear. Feel free to email me if you need someone to talk to. I hope things get better for you.

Hi lilblackpom. This is such a sweet story. Chris must have been (still is) a great brother. Quite the brotherly thing to do, drag you somewhere that scares you 😆
