Cheeky Ghost on 2014-11-18

My experience of paranormal activity happened in 2009 when I was flatting as a second year university student in Palmerston North. Now I am not even sure if it's paranormal but there sure is heck no other explanation me or my flat mates or partner could find. Now enter my story... I was 20 at th...

Yes that's the one happyspirit. Yes I always wondered that if it was him why he was trying to get my attention, because I was of very little use to help. I would love to know if this happened to anybody else in that house but it's too hard to find out. I hope he did transition in the end.

In regards to the events in the surrounding area, as in the first post I said that a young man died in a house fire in the property next door. The properties were very close so only meters from my bedroom window. The remains of the house had gone & there were brand new student flats built on the site. Out of curiosity I googled yesterday to see if the story about the death was true. Sure enough it is. February 2005 a 21 year old male perished in the fire, there are still several newspaper reports online about it. So 4 years before I lived in the house. I found it a little creepy knowing these details but also sad for the family

I have lived in places that have had those old lose water lines in the roof space & they are rather noisy but yet this had no noise. It was the most south room in the house & the water mains for the house came from the other side but never extended as far as my room as this room was the furtherest from the bathroom & kitchen. Actually thinking about it now, there wasn't any water pipes in the roof because they were underfloor. I remember because one old connection bit broke off from the mains water supply so resulted in no water & a huge leak under the house. Good old student flats in palmy it took over a week for them to fix it:s

Hey no construction in or around the house and the house was only 1 level with very little roof space. It was technically a typical weatherboard 1960's house, probably a family home back in its day so not an apartment. Any activity like you mention couldn't have caused the light to swing as violently as it did in the first episode. As I said in the post my partner is an electrician so I got him to explain to me his possible thoughts on what it was. The day I was moving out he came to collect all my gear with his work truck & we got talking about what had happened so he decided to show me how the light fitting was fixed to the ceiling because I was of the belief that maybe a rat or something could have pulled the wire and made it swing. However, once he took it down to show me it became obvious that wasn't a possibility because the wire for the light fighting are screwed into the fitting so as much as you pull he cord in the ceiling, all that would made happen would break a wire or the wire would come loose from the terminal & the light would stop going.

I would also like to pint out the mechanics of the way the light was swinging. Imagine the pivot point of the light and imagine it swinging all the way around so 360 degrees. However, that's not possible because of the ceiling being in the way so you could only reach a swing of 180 degrees which would mean the light fitting would be touching the ceiling in each swing phase. In the 1st episode the light would have been swinging very nearly 180 degrees, I would say it was 16-170 degrees range in motion. So imagine the earth quake or gail force wind you would need in your house to get that kind of range of motion... Wasn't possible
