The Lady In My Room


I had just moved to a new house a few months ago. I thought it was nice and comfortable and spacious but within the first week I started hearing loud banging on the walls and doors slamming when I was home alone. I figured it must've been just the doors being pushed by the wind from the fans so I thought whatever.

It continued but only when I was alone so it creeped me out and when I told my parents they wouldn't believe me. They said it was my imagination and to stop making up stories. So for the next few days I tried to stay with someone else in the house. A friend, my sister, or anyone. As long as I wasn't home alone. Nothing suspicious happened when someone else was there with me.

After a while I wasn't too scared anymore because I hadn't heard anything so I stayed home while my parents and sister went out for the night. I pretty much watched TV for most of the night before I heard the banging again. Now I knew it wasn't just the wind. I was vey very scared but instead of freaking out I just ignored it and listened to my iPod really loud so I didn't hear it. That didn't help because that moment, I happened to look behind me to see the shadow of a lady standing in the hallway.

She didn't move at all, she just stood in the same position and it seemed like she was staring right at me. The feeling I had was sickening and I felt really tired when I saw her/ it. After about 10 seconds, she slowly backed down the hallway and vanished.

It was the scariest thing in my life. Tell me what you guys think about it.

Hi I loveTacos,

Ghosts seem to know where there is an open door to the world of the living. Someone they can reach. In your case this spirit is trying to tell you about what's troubling her. Talk to her, tell her what ever it is she should let go of it and leave you alone...

Thanks for sharing, hopefully you will be free of this soon!

A few questions if I may...

How old is the Home?

Do you know any of the Homes History?

What was the 'woman' wearing?

To me it sounds as if this 'spirit' is wondering who is in 'her home'. She used 'energy' from you in order to 'manifest' into the apperition you saw. I DO NOT think it was a 'vampire ghost'.

I'd like to offer a technique that helps in my home, indeed any home I have ever lived in, I even use it for myself. Please try it and keep us updated... Research the homes history, that may provide some answers for you.

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

You say this phenomenon only occurs when you are home alone? Have you ever tried asking someone else to stay alone in the house by themselves to see if they experience the same thing? If you ever go away on vacation or something, maybe you should ask a friend to house sit for you, someone who knows of the situation and is willing to help you prove that it isn't all in your head like your parents think.

Unfortunately, that is the only advice I can think of.

I would try to talk to your sister about it if you're close. Otherwise, when it happens say out loud "please stop. You're scaring me." if it progresses tell your parents what you saw and tell them you're serious. Hopefully they will listen.

that's really freaky I hope you can cope with her in the house. If she gets aggressive then find whatever help you can get with her don't show fear or anger towards her she will feed on that.

Maybe you should try lighting a white candle at night in your room. Its might help keep the ghost away. 😕

thats really freaky. You said it only happens to you when your alone? Try and ask your sister if she is hearing these noises or seen shadows moving around the house. If not the ghost might be trying to tell you something. Try and reaserch the history of your house and go from there hope this helps. If it starts getting worse try reaserching some clensing rituals or as one of my friends suggested when something like this happened to me were a blue sort of stone around your neck and they will leave you alone.
