My sister in law had come to live with me and my husband due to the fact that my brother left her pregnant and with a 1 year old. As a woman, I understood and felt her pain but as a sister I still loved my brother even for what he did. For a few months, all she did was cry and there was nothing I could do to help her. One weekend I went to get my cards read (which I don't do anymore) and she tagged along, after that day she became obsessed with getting my brother back through witchcraft. I know a lot about it because of my grandmother and mother and so I told her what she needed to do (big mistake!). We went to a "candle shop" and she talked to the people there as to what she could do, I never once stopped and asked because I felt like it wasn't my place, it was personal. Later that night, she told me that they gave her the Intranquil Spirit candle; I didn't like that idea because that spirit isn't something you mess around with. It's almost close to the Santa Muerte spirit (you can Google both and get a feel for what I'm talking about) I told her that she needed to light a white candle for protection for not only herself, but for the household. I'm guessing she never did.
A couple of weeks later, we started hearing footsteps around the house; loud heavy walking, at one point her and I were in the restroom cleaning makeup brushes and we both turned around really fast, looking behind us, I asked her if she heard that and she looked scared but said she did. What we heard was someone walking down the hall and into the restroom with us (please note that my house sits on cinder blocks so any walking, paranormal or not, we're going to hear it); and stopped directly behind me. Since she was pregnant she would wake up in the middle of the night and eat cereal, one morning she had told me that the night before she woke up to have some cereal and she said she heard the cat under the sink, but when she went to go look the cat wasn't there. She went back to eating the cereal and heard it again, she got scared and went back to her room; her room light brought enough light for her to see that our cat was asleep with me on the bed. And no, we don't have rats; it wasn't a possum or anything like that. Even my husband started to become aggressive and that's not his nature, nothing was ever peaceful, everything seemed strained. I don't know if it was that candle or just her vibes rubbing off on me and him.
Things happened to her more than to me or my husband, she told us that she would see black spots in the living room when she would come from outside late at night and they seemed to be gliding on the wall. Before any of the candle business was brought into play, yes, we did hear things in that house but it never made me feel uncomfortable, the door knobs would turn and we always would hear the front door open and close. But like I said nothing had an evil feel to it, until she lit that candle. I'd hear voices, but there weren't voices, something like moans maybe? I have no idea. My niece hated being in her room, she would scream bloody murder when it was time to go to bed and would be ok when she was out of the room. I asked her if she ever lit the white candle and she told me no, so I told her to just get rid of it, and once she did, it stopped. She continued to do other things in the house to get what she wanted (which I had no idea), eventually her and my brother did get back together but this was after she decided to plunk down money for an experienced cunadera who, I guess successfully brought them back together. I'm not sure what was in the house, but she's gone and that's the last time I help anyone or do anything like that.
