Frantic Knocking On Ceiling on 2017-08-04

Several years ago during the week or so after my husband died, I had something strange happen. I lived alone in our house. One evening, I was in bed, crying again, and I heard light knocking on the ceiling outside the bedroom. I ignored it, thinking it was just strange house noises. I noticed it on ...

Events Happening In My House - on 2016-07-18

Over the past few months, there has been an increase in noticeable activity at my house (large lot, lot's of room between neighbors). I made a comment on one of my other posts about a couple of incidents. These were that my bedroom door opened and closed itself while I watched from the bed, somethin...

Hooded Shadow Person on 2016-07-05

Three nights ago I was sleeping on my left side, with my back to the bedroom door, when I was awakened by someone shaking my right shoulder to try and wake me up. I turned over to look at whoever was trying to wake me and all I saw was a dark figure of a person that appeared to be wearing a loose ho...

Cemetery Rescue on 2016-02-22

I had some interesting paranormal experiences growing up in the Las Vegas area. One is kind of funny and while it may or may not have a paranormal component, I thought it would be a good one to share. When I was 18 in the early 80's, a friend and I had been spending the evening downtown (that mea...

Warning From My Guardian Angel on 2016-02-15

About 27 years ago, I had to leave town for work for about a week. Before I left, I talked to my grandmother on the phone and she told me to call her when I got back and she'd have me over for pot roast (we lived in the same town) since we hadn't visited in a while. When I returned from travel, I...

Flash Of Light And Shadow Man Next To Bed on 2016-02-04

A couple of years ago, I started noticing a very short, fast single flash of light once every few days or so in the dark bedroom at night when I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep. It was so fast I could never really see where it originated in the room, except a couple of times it seemed like i...

Bathroom Light Cycling on 2016-02-02

One night about three years ago, I woke up to find myself alone in my bedroom with the master bathroom's light very slowly cycling on and off. This had never happened before. My husband had stayed up late to read in the living room so as not to disturb my sleeping. I went into the bathroom and t...

Restroom Poltergeist on 2016-01-18

About 12 years ago I worked for a large manufacturing company.  About a year prior to the story I'm about to tell, the company had just completed construction on a new wing of the building in which I worked. My group had moved into this wing right after its completion. Our offices were on the second...

Bedroom Voice on 2016-01-07

When I got married five years ago, I moved into my husband's house in Wenatchee, Washington. The house was built in 1959. One night, about a month after we got married, we went to bed around 11 pm. I laid down next to my husband and put my head on his shoulder. The nightstand light next to him was s...

Hi Meldel, I agree that it seems like it could be your brother.
Have you had any other signs from him?

Don't you wonder why knocking seems to be something that spirits can do easily? It just doesn't seem like knocking is a low energy action.

Allforlaughter, that's an interesting story. I have no idea what it is. Have you ruled out you subconscious influencing your mental interpretation of events?
It was very likely an animal. There is no data to indicate otherwise, and this is a common experience with animals.
Caylo28, your sister sounds like she is experiencing seizures again. It doesn't matter that she hasn't had one in years and is not on meds anymore. They can start up again due to many triggers, including stress, hormones, etc. They can also bring about feelings of dread, deja vu, sorrow, etc.

She should first focus on making sure she is healthy by talking to a Dr. Her life and health is most important. Ignoring this possibility could just be denial which could lead to unnecessary unhappiness.
Hi The_Banker,did the knocking sound like it was being made by striking the structure of the building or an object in your attic?

Miracles, did you notice if the voice occurred around any time of a particular stress or worry?

Red,that's a funny story. I'm sure your dad felt bad about that!
Faith1990, I heard a voice once. It yelled at me to get my attention, but unfortunately I didn't alter my plans.

Lotus29, I'd be interested to read what the paranormal investigator said. It makes me wonder how much of what we experience or observe is generated by our own energy.
Interesting story, Lotus. I had an experience with a light turning on in a hotel room next to the bed. I also had a strange experience with light that I wrote about here:


Last week, my husband and I were staying in a hotel room, and I woke in the middle of the night and saw what I thought was my husband walking back to the bed in the dark. All I could see was his black figure against the small amount of light from the window. He stopped at the foot of the bed and I found it strange that he wasn't getting back in bed when a second later the bathroom door opened and my husband walked out. Don't know know what what the dark figure was!

That is a great story! Thanks for sharing it!
Do you know if it was the first experience your granddad had?

Las Vegas is definitely a city of high emotion and some interesting history. I've heard many stories from there, and yours fits in well with the others.

Brighteyez, I have found myself feeling heightened anxiety during periods of extreme emotion, such as a death.

I've had specific anxiety about going to the bathroom and showering after my grandma died. I repeatedly told myself that she wouldn't want to scare me.

I've come to the conclusion over the years that I just get that way during certain types of stressful periods.
Razz, I agree with your first comment. I'm reminded of the time my husband and dad were having a discussion about the possibility of aliens coming to earth. My husband made some offhand comment about something the aliens might do when they arrived, and my father started to argue that aliens wouldn't want to do that (very seriously believing himself, by the way).

Randy, I am happy you shared your personal (and very intense) experience with us. Thank you! It is one of those stories that added mass to me (I hope that makes sense - I have a hard time putting into words the feeling). I can't imagine how horrible it must have been to learn of your real parents and their anguish. It is so sad your mother didn't get to see you again.

I had an experience with my boyfriend years ago the night his mother died where I felt her engulf us with love and her presence while we were hugging. I felt her go through me. We were even surrounded by a thick mist. When she left us, I saw the mist float up to the streetlight. It was night at the time. Not quite an electric feeling, but it was different than anything else I've experienced. It's been so many years ago that it is hard to recall the feeling.

This makes me think.
A few questions I am hoping you can answer.

Have you tried sitting out there by yourself with the rest of your household quiet at around the same time of night to see if you experience it again?

Did your friend ever get a good enough look at one to be able to describe its appearance?

At that time of year, do you still have insects around at night?

Have you looked up the local insect types to see if it can be explained by that?

Did you try to take a picture without your camera flash to see if the light coming off of it would show up in the image?

Has your friend tried to take pictures?

Did they stay once 'summoned'? We're they scared off by movement, like arm flapping?

Did his sister in law have prior fairy experiences which led her to want to get certified?

Thanks for sharing your strange experience. The images look like there are sets of wings in multiple places on the creature. It seems like it would have many degrees of freedom and be capable of the movement you describe.

Interesting! Thanks for considering my questions.
Very strange and frightening!

Something similar happened to me once while driving. I saw a woman on a bench at a bus stop that had a face like you describe. She stared at me as I was driving and her face looked bloody and distorted like she was melting or grossly disfigured, but definitely bloody. I don't think she was alive. I continued driving, to this day get a bit nervous when I come upon people at bus stops and recall that face.
Spiritwaiting, very interesting! And creepy. I'm wondering what is going on with the ticking. Sometimes I think that evps are picking up on a different time dimension.

Do you have any new results (post cleansing) or a way to post your first evp?
I think he knew he was dead and truly wanted to reach out to you. Otherwise, wouldn't there have been some hesitation for going into a stranger's bedroom? Perhaps more apology for barging in?
Hi spiritwaiting,

Thanks for reading through all of these events and giving some good ideas!

I have wondered if it was my late husband, but something just doesn't seem right about that. My late husband was such a kind person (loved by everyone the I know of that knew him) who had good things to say about everything (in all of our years together, I never heard him say anything negative about anyone). He had such a good sense of humor and was so fun to hang out with. It just doesn't fit his character to be here with the possibility of bothering me. I just don't feel like it's him. But I sure wish it was!

Your thoughts on the power cords are interesting. The reason being that I have moved the cords a bit over a month ago, and I haven't had anything happen for some time. I wonder if the activity stopped around the same time as I moved the cords.

Also had one other change. My husband and I got a new bed and removed the old bed (which was the same frame my late husband and I used). Don't know if there is a correlation there either.

I'll posted an update if anything starts up again.

Tweed, around here it's common for people to have folks staying on their property in RVs, using generators. I noticed the frequency of this happening increased as people lost their homes due to the economic downturn. It is less common now, but just last weekend the neighbor behind me and kitty corner moved an rv in their backyard with the windows looking into our yard. My husband's been grumbling about the lack of privacy all week.

People next door had their son move into an rv in their driveway about a month ago. My next door neighbors have a swimming pool pump that makes a motor sound during the summer which drives me nuts. Seasonal though.

Last, the 'new' neighbors across the street caused an uproar in the neighborhood when they got on their riding lawnmower at 11:30 at night to mow their front and back lawns. I got a couple of phone calls from other neighbors asking if I knew who was rudely mowing and keeping everyone awake. I looked out the window and saw the neighbor had a headlight on his mower, like a car! Anyway, he never did that again.
