Spirit In The Kitchen


So starting a few months ago when I was speaking to my boyfriend on the phone some really creepy things started happening. My boyfriend, Andrew, was in the kitchen making food and I was in my car driving home. A couple minutes into the conversation I started hearing a static on my end of the phone and I thought the connection was just bad because only I could hear the static.

So I hung up and called back, the sound continued the entire time I was on the phone. In addition to the static I began hearing a man screaming. Sometimes all I heard was screaming thorough the static and sometimes I could hear words as if he was screaming something at me, but I couldn't make out what he was saying. During this time I felt a very eerie presence in the back of my car, like something was behind my drivers seat watching and listening to every word I said and just enjoying basking in my fear, of course, this freaked me out even more.

Then once the static stopped on my end, it switched, and only Andrew could hear it now, he described to me a static like the one I heard but with screaming and more of a growl as well as "if fear was a sound that's what it would sound like". At first I played it off as some electrical issues that were just messing up the signal in the kitchen, but then after a while I noticed it doesn't happen every time hes in the kitchen, only sometimes, so now I don't think its electrical issues at all.

Last week, I invited my friend, who is highly sensitive to spirits and energy and can actually see and speak to them at times, to the house without telling her the situation. When I asked her to get me something out of the kitchen she ran back terrified. After spending 5 seconds in that room her heart was pounding and she told me she felt some evil entity standing in the corner. She described him as a man, not a demon. She refuses to go back into the kitchen, and it seems the "man" refuses to leave that corner.

I have an infrared camera and when pointed at that corner, you can see an energy there but fading out. Every time I take the camera away and put it back the same thing happens, the energy is there and then fades as if it moving behind the wall because it knows we are looking at him. No one has ever felt the presence outside of the kitchen nor as the static and screaming over the phone happened unless one of us is standing in the kitchen, usually by the sink and window.

I want to burn some sage and bless a few things in the house for protection, though I don't feel threatened by him, I don't feel comfortable in the house. I was hoping any of you could give me some ideas, because I don't want to make him angry either and make these happenings get worse. Any ideas?

I feel the need to address your comment.

Hocus Pocus? I think not, the method I offered has all kinds of room for Prayers to Heavenly Father, Shiva, Allah or the Deity of your choice. Or not... You can just focus on positve thoughts and energy filling the space. It is simply a framework to help direct an individual 'push out' the negative that may be in a given location and replace it with positive things.

I myself 'fill in the blanks' to the same individuals you mention plus One (Rememeber it's Father, Son and Holy Spirit). But my method is worded to aid anyone regardless of their beliefs.

I have no spiritual fixes or any sort of technical know how but I have had a similar experience. I completely understand your boyfriends assessment of the sound. Truly unnerving. I do see several similarities between our two encounters, the spirit in the house and the phone interaction, and the growling as well. I wonder though, And forgive me if this seems odd but, are you anywhere near water? In my investigation of my encounter with "phone ghosts" I found that several others in this particular area, surrounded by water, also had dealings with this phenomena. When I dug further I found that many believe that water is attractive to spirits. On the other hand it also is said to play a bit of havoc on telecommunications. (to be honest I did not understand that explanation as I am techno-ignorant) Anyhow, Please keep us informed of any changes or further clues. And if you would care to compare our stories please read my story,"Careful what you wish for" Thanks,510mot. 😁

If you truely wish to try something there are many things you may do... You mentioned smudging... That can be a good place to start. You may consider 'Cold Iron' as a way of keeping this 'energy' 'at bay' (place a horse shoe in each room of your home... Or other items made from iron...)

I offer this method, I use it for myself and on my Home...

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/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) 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.)

Please consider everything 'normal' before rushing to a paranormal explination... Your friend may be sensitive... But being sensitive perhaps they picked up on a spot in your home that has a lot of electromagnecitc interference. It's something to consider.

Or perhaps there is a bit of intensity in the corner that the IR camera is adapting to, such as when your own eyes adjust to a differing light level.
Phone connections aren't always great, particularly with cross-talk and bleed over. Fiber optical cable may be nice, but more often than not it's still tied in with the old fashioned (and aging) copper pairs.
