I moved out of the house with the "Monster in the closet". We (My mother, brother, and step father) now reside at our previous residence. I have reason to believe there are presences in here.
We have a basement that is a laundry room on one side of the stairs, a finished sitting room on the other, and when you come down off of the stairs, it is sort of like a storage area. When you walk into the basement, you can feel the atmosphere change, yes, maybe it is because you are walking down a level, maybe not. When you walk up the stairs, you feel watched, from the far right corner of the storage area. It feels like harsh eyes burning through your back. The feeling is very strong.
As we were moving stuff into the house, I was in the basement, I decided to name the presence down here. Mind you, it always gave my mother and I a bad vibe. I figured, maybe if I try communicating with it, it might ease up a bit. I named him CornerGuy, CG for short. I was unpacking books and just decide to say, "Hello. My name is Belle, I know you're there CG, give me a sign to make it positive." I turned back to the books when suddenly a glass jar fell off of the one stand that was positioned in the corner. I was temporarily freaked out, but then I asked my mom if it had been hanging of the edge. She says, "No, It was on the table the whole ways. Why?" I told her what had happened. Her reply was, "I knew it."
I made it a point, since I am always in the basement watching TV, to talk to CG. I'll tell him, "Hello." I'll invite him to watch the TV with me, and then when I go upstairs I'll tell him, "Goodbye CG, I'm going upstairs." Since I've started relaxing more, and talking to him, the atmosphere seems a lot lighter.
I'm not sure about how I would figure out his actual name. I'm NOT going to use an ouijia board, and I don't want to consult a medium since my step clown isn't accepting of the paranormal.
