My husband and I bought a very dirty old house in Brakpan and renovated it. This house has a history of very wild people who lived here but nothing evil as far as our neighbors can tell me.
When we moved into this house both my sons begged me:" please mom not THIS house". Unfortunately we have stayed here for seven years now and we love our house now. We've got a ghost of a lady wandering around sometimes but she behaves and is no problem. My father saw her once. He was driving past and wondered if he must stop by or not because he thought I was working. He saw a lady entering the front gate walked to the stoop and front door. He stopped and thought I had opened for her but there was no one home. He realized what he saw because he can also see ghosts. He is not the only one who has seen her. My husband's cousin's girlfriend's sister also saw her. The same woman prescribed by my dad. She is short with curly dark brown hair and chubby build. The neighbor's say they don't know what had happened to her. She used to run a tavern in the back yard. They say an old woman died because of illness in the house years ago. That is the only history I could gather about the house.
When we moved in I heard footsteps on the wooden floor coming from the passage. One night something crawled into our bed. It came in at our feet on the end of the bed and tried to push me out of the bed. I prayed and it went away. My husband also felt uneasy in this house. One day I heard the footsteps again on the wooden floors coming straight into my room. Something pinned me down and stroked my hair. I tried to turn my head to see what it was but this thing was forcing my head the other way. It said in my own father's voice that I must not be afraid he is just my father. I prayed and it left me immediately.
We cleansed the house and blessed it after my husband found a plastic bag with a snake skin in. It was sewed with thread and there were another little plastic bag with it. In this packet was stuff that looked like herbs. We didn't open it we just dug a hole and burned it while praying. My husband discovered this plastic bag behind a pole in the back yard that he wanted to remove since we moved in there. He said that pole troubled him since we moved in there. It's better now but little things still happens. But the evil is gone. We started to renovate the place.
My husband and I were busy in the house and it was just me and him. He opened a beer because it was very hot that day and put it on his toolbox while he was busy in a blink when he wanted to take the beer it was gone. I don't know how, but it was gone. It disappeared. We still can't understand this because in my whole life I never saw something go missing like that. I was in the same room and I saw him put the beer on the toolbox and next it was gone. We're still puzzled about this.
One day my husband went to the bathroom, he put his glass on the edge of the bath. He came out with this look on his face. He said:" You won't believe me if I tell you what happened. I put my glass down and heard something crack. My glass cracked right through and braked' I thought maybe it was an old glass but it was one of our thick glasses and no way could it crack just like that on its own. I must say we ignore these things by laughing it off or we will make a joke out of it.
The other thing that's happening sometimes is very strange though. One night my husband and I sat on the bed just chatting then the light bulb felt out of its fitting into tiny pieces on the floor. I just said: "oh gosh the ghost wants the light off" I got the vacuum and cleaned it up. It is imposable for that globe to just fell out because you have to screw it into the connection and it was not faulty. On another occasion the globe in the kitchen exploded above me and in the dining room this also happened once and in the bathroom. The electricity is checked nothing is wrong there. We thought it might be a problem with the electric part of the house but it's not.
The other day my husband's cousin and his girlfriend came to visit and slept over. I made a bed for them in the sitting room with a mattress on the floor. The next morning I went to the kitchen and saw all these glass pieces on the ground next to where they sleep. I thought gee did they fight or what? They woke up and thought gee did my husband or me perhaps fell down the step and broke a glass or what?
This time it was the light fitting in the sitting room that came down and again imposable to just fall of the ceiling without the loosening by human hands by screwing it loose. Strangely the girl who rent our flat attach to the house also came the next week to pay her rent and told me that a week ago the light fittings just fell down but didn't break. She is here for already a year and this is the first time something like this happened. The light fittings in the flat are also screwed in and imposable to just fall out of the sky.
One night my husband went fishing and I stayed home that night. I couldn't sleep so I played my LP records that night to keep me busy. I never close the curtains in that room because it looks out on the garden in the backyard. While I was working this music I saw a light outside in the back yard up and down like it's flying around in the backyard then it disappeared again but I was not afraid. I figured it was something that was protecting me.
One day my dogs went into the sitting room all at once and started howling for no reason. I don't know what that was. My cocker spaniel died because of old age and ever since my other dog was staring at something in the passage. He refused to sleep in his basket that faced the hallway. He would stare at something and get up and want to climb into our bed. I moved his basket to the other side of the room where he doesn't face the hallway and now he sleeps.
Sorry this story was so long but this is what's happening in our house. Do you think I must worry or do you think it's just a ghost looking for attention?
