It's been a while since I posted anything, but I wanted to add another story of the haunted house I live in now. Sorry but this is going to be kind of long.
My wife and I moved in to this house in 2004, it was built in 1956 so it's older. When we moved in, my wife and I and her son were sitting downstairs in the basement, when we heard a bang upstairs. Well we didn't investigate it immediately and went on watching our show on TV. Later my wife went upstairs to get something and said that she found a glass vase that she had put on top the refridgerator in the middle of the kitchen floor standing upside down. Now there is no way the vase could of fallen from the fridge to the middle of the floor on it's own. Never the less, being in a new house, we registered it in the back of our minds as odd. By the way both my wife and myself believe in ghosts as we have had too many experiences to doubt their existence.
Well, little things began to happen; like the TV downstairs would turn on when nobody was down there. One time we were trying to catch the ghost on video and we placed a chair on the floor with a camera on it to record anything, and we left the house for a while and when we came back the camera was turned off and the chair had been moved to the middle of the living room floor with phone books stacked on the seat. Nobody had been to the house as we had taken the family out with us. It was kind of funny, because the ghost seems to be intelligent enough to do these things and he knows you are trying to catch him.
I have set out a recorder many times to capture any EVP while I am out of the house and everytime I set it up and I announce that I'm leaving now. Whenever I play it back I hear a constant clicking sound or a tapping sound kind of like a clock. Thing is, we don't have a working clock that ticks in the house and the sound is not audible anytime when we are in the house. I have caught sounds before on the recorder where it sounds like someone is slamming doors in the house and cabinets, but nothing is out of place or stolen when we return to rule out possible burglars.
I call the ghost a lazy ghost because he is active for a few days then there will be no activity for a year of more, then out of the blue he will do something like turning on the TV downstairs.
There was one time that he was really active and I and my wife believe it was because we were having marital problems and were arguing alot. The ghost was targeting my wife when we argued. I would leave the house and she would tell me that it sounded like a truck drove through the house and crashed into the living room, but she was too scared to get up and check it out.
My wife was pushed down the stairs when I would be in the basement after a fight, always on the second to last step something would push her and my young son was pushed on the same step. Well I had had it when I found out and I went upstairs to the crawlspace, because that is where we think it hides out. We always feel uncomfortable there and like an energy pushing you away. Also the door to the crawlspace will not stay closed. We have to prop it up against the hole because it will constantly fall down after you stick it against the hole. I attribute it to high heat and air pressure, but the feeling you get being up there is not natural.
Anyway, like I said, after my wife was pushed on the stairs I went up there and told the ghost that was enough, you will not push or harm my family and if it continued I would banish it from this house. I gotta say it worked, because it never happened again, and I think the ghost is afraid of me, because it never does anything directly to me.
Well as things progressed with the marital problems and fighting between us the ghost started to do things in my newborn sons room. We were downstairs and there was a loud crash in his room and we rushed up there to discover my sons bookshelf turned over with all his books and toys on the floor. Also he had a giant stuffed Care Bear that would be moved or thrown down the stairs when he was asleep.
One time as we were in bed, a big bag of stuffed animals we had bagged up and left in front of the crawlspace door was thrown down the stairs. There is no way a breeze or draft could of moved the bag and the bag was against the wall a good three feet from the stairs and it was pushed down the stairs and landed outside of our bedroom door which sits across from the stairs.
We used to have a foot stool that we kept near our bed for my wife to use to get into bed when she was pregnant. We have a captains bed and it is very high so the stool helped her get into bed. Anyway, that stool would be flipped violently everynight. When I was downstairs I would hear the loud bang and go up to find it upside down and outside of the doorway of our room. Yet, everytime we tried to video tape the stool it would never move.
The ghost got the most violent with my wife when I left the house for weeks, because of the fighting. My wife called me one time and said she was scared and had been keeping a knife behind her pillow on the headboard, and she felt the ghost enter the room and she said I'm not scared of you, you can't hurt me. I told her to say that when she felt scared or threatened. Well, she told me that the ghost laughed in her face and threw the knife she had behind her head against the opposite wall where it stuck in the wall. She took a pic of it, and sent it to me.
Also when she was in the kitchen cooking the knife that she was using fell off the cutting board and stuck into the floor by her foot. It was too far up on the counter to of fallen on it's own. We called in a ghost investigation group that a guy I work with runs, when that happened and they came over.
The day they came over, just before they got to our house, my wife was playing the piano in our living room and called me upstairs because she said that she had seen a little boy's face reflected in a picture frame that was on the piano when she was playing. I asked her what he looked like and she said he had black hair and his face was messed up looking like scary messed up looking, but it was a short little boy.
When my coworker arrived he brought his aunt who stated she was sensitive and she stated she felt the ghost was a little boy and that was why it listened to me when I was mad and told it to stop. She and my wife also heard laughing in the house, when myself and the other investigators heard nothing. Nothing was caught on film that they took or EVP's though, because like I said he's smart.
Well as we mended our marriage and stopped fighting the activity stopped and he has been fairly quite. I don't know if it is a ghost of a boy or a demon feeding off of the negative energy in the house that we had created or not. But no activity has happened in quite awhile.
Just in closing: I had a dream in which I was in a house, not mine, and a ghost had trapped a family behind a wall and I ran around the wall to help them and the ghost shattered a pane of glass at me and screamed this loud scream in my face. He was really ugly and freaky looking, and I remember saying in my dream, "I bind you in the name of Jesus Christ and cast you from this place" and I saw in my dream the ghost stopped screaming in my face and vanished, then I woke up.
Nothing has happened in our house as of late. It has been quiet for a few years now.
