In my last post I told you about my experiences living in a house that is across town from where I live now. This house is also haunted though with a different kind of spirit. My husband and I haven't been able to figure out what it wants or get rid of it. It's our biggest challenge yet. Keep in mind while you read this that my parents live with us and so do their dogs.
My parents found this house up for rent at the end of September 2009. They came to check it out and they instantly fell in love with it even though it was out of their budget. They brought my husband and me to look at it the second time. It's a beautiful house with big windows, hardwood floors, and a fire place and has a somewhat modern feel. I loved the look of the house but something told me that we shouldn't move in. Most of it was because I knew we couldn't afford it but something else was nagging at me.
We moved in on October 10th of the same year. Everything was alright for the first month. Slowly I started noticing little things. I felt a woman's presence in our "office" and a darker male presence in the kitchen. I also felt watched when I went into the garage. I shook it off as residual feelings from the other house.
One night my husband and I were getting ready for bed and I decided I wanted a cup of tea to help me sleep. I went in to put the water on to boil and check on the dogs. I looked out the sliding glass door and saw a blue, misty cloud floating over our patio. My husband came in and I looked over at him and back at the patio. It was gone. I told my husband about it and he said he came into the kitchen because he heard me call his name. The thing is I didn't call him. Whenever I'm alone in the kitchen I feel someone putting their hands on me or around my waist but my husband isn't in the room. The second I turn around it stops. I've seen the shadow outline in the kitchen near the fireplace.
My husband and I began hearing footsteps in the hallway and a woman's voice coming from the office and calling our names. On one specific event we were both heading to our bedroom at the back of the house and we both heard a woman's voice whisper "Hey, come in here." I've seen her once or twice coming out of the room wearing a civil war like costume with her brown hair pulled up in a clip. We don't think she is a negative spirit and we like having her around.
"The thing in the garage above the house" as my husband and I call it is mean and vicious. It's given me a concussion and caused all sorts of mayhem in my relationship with my husband and between my parents. I've seen it as a dark cloud living above the house and in the garage.
How it gave me a concussion is interesting. One morning I was getting ready to go to my classes. I'm a psychology major at the local college. My husband was preparing our lunches and I was left packing my backpack. I put my bag about 10 inches from the edge of the bed and loaded it up with books and my laptop. I zipped it up and laid it down toward the middle of the bed. I bent down to get a crochet hook off of the floor and my backpack hit me on the back of my head. I instantly got dizzy and a major headache. I decided to go to school anyway but about half way through the day I just couldn't take it anymore. I went to the doctor and they diagnosed me with a minor concussion. To this day I can't explain how my backpack could have fallen on my head when there was at least 10 inches from the bottom of the bag to the edge of the bed.
Once it gave me the concussion I knew that it was time to deal with this particular being. I have no clue how to get rid of it or to make it stop terrorizing the family. I've told it to stop and tried smudging the house. Nothing worked. I would appreciate any advice. Please note that my husband and I am pagan and my parents are Christian so something that both religions have in common or something that pagan that I could easily do without my parents noticing would be best.
