I am hoping someone might be able to help me/us understand what we are experiencing as I think we are getting a little nervous about the situation. I have one sister only, who has 4 children and her eldest is 23 years old. On a few late nights I would visit their house after visiting mum in hospital. When I was sitting in the lounge room, I caught a glimpse of a smallish dark shadow (very quick). When I turned my head my sis asked what was the matter and I said I thought I saw something. When I described it, she then explained about their experiences, which we now are more conscious about and I think we are scaring ourselves.
To give you examples, they have been in all different areas of the house, seems to be small size as on one occasion my sisters partner thought it was one of the kids hiding under his bed. He called out, "what are you doing?" On separate occasions my sis has felt a presence of something and seems to be weighing her down in bed and then woke up face to face with a very old, scary looking woman very close to her face. My niece (without any knowledge of her mum's experience) had a similar experience, she sleeps downstairs on her own and felt pressure on her chest and this old woman staring at her.
Now on the same night that I caught a glimpse of this shadow, when I was ready to leave the house, I reached for the door handle and found that it jiggled. I was a little hesitant at first but eventually grabbed it and walked out the door. On another night again, when I was going to leave her house, I heard a knocking on the door (it sounded like a noise from a door softly banging in the breeze, as my kids tend to leave the bathroom door open and it sounded identical). It didn't stop until I opened the door and found no one there as well as a very still night, no breeze. I thought how weird. Now, two nights ago my niece stayed the night to look after my son as I would be working the following morning and all was well, until she told me the following morning her experiences in my house. She feels strange in my eldest son's room (7 years old) and has seen more than one dark shadow standing in front of her while she was laying on my sofa bed. I don't know what this all means but I REALLY am curious to read all suggestions.
When my eldest son was a baby I know that he would look up and have a great giggle. When I would try and look for whatever it was, nothing, eventually I put it down to his angels are watching over him and as long as he was happy, all was well. Now that his little brother has moved into that room after he was born, I am finding that he too some nights is having giggling fits and I just say at least he is being looked after.
Sister: purchased approx 20+yr old double stories house. Found out from neighbors that they had a young son who suffered a battle with cancer and he passed away in the house.
My house: Built from scratch, we are the only owners. The area was farm land, cows grazing on the pastures.
Hope you can shed some light, to help us understand what exactly is going on, what we should do etc.
Thanking you all in advance
