There Is Something In My Room


I feel that I have a spirit in my bedroom, and I have felt a presence for a few years now. I am 21-years-old, and I do live with my mother, father, brother and younger sister. We have lived in the same house for close to 5 years now. The house was only built 8 years ago.

I never really paid much attention to the strange little things that have happened in my room, such as my plasma TV turning itself on late at night and just showing a white screen, then all of a sudden it will turn off again. I thought this was a fault with the television, but for a while now I'm not too sure.

I am always up late at night, when the rest of the family have been asleep for hours. But the last 8 months or so, it's not just my television turning itself on and then off again. I have woken up from a heavy sleep to ringing in my ears, it feels that someone is standing over me while I lay in bed. I hear tapping on the walls, which is only very faint. I know this isn't all in my head, because I have had friends stay over who witness the exact same things in my room. It honestly has scared a few of them.

Last night for example, I woke up to go to the toilet and as I switched the bathroom light on, it quickly shut itself off within a second. I thought the light had blown, so I turned it back off, then on again. The light didn't come back on, so I assumed it had blown the bulb. Then a few seconds later, it brightly lit the room. It scared the s#!t out of me. I went back to bed, and tried to get some sleep. This was around 2:00. Finally I feel asleep around 2:20 a.m. Then I re-woke at 4:15 a.m. I was sweating and I felt disgusted with myself. I felt scared and confused, and I couldn't understand why. I felt that someone was in the room with me, just watching me feel like this. I have never had anything like that happen to me. I heard small noises, but I couldn't work out where they where coming from. It sounded so close, but didn't have a direction.

I have done seances in the past, and I do believe in spirits but I have never had anything like this happen to me. I'm worried if there is a spirit in my room, its not a nice one. Whatever it is, I feel uneasy around it.

My mum has never been one to believe in supernatural things, but she does not like being in my room. She feels uncomfortable in there. She was cleaning the house a few months back while she was home alone and she said she heard a huge bang come from my room, repetitively. It had scared her so much she had to leave the house and go out for the day. There where no windows open in the house. I have told her of things which happen in my room, and now she seems to be more understanding of the whole situation.

I just want to know if anyone would maybe know a reason for why this is happening? Why it won't go, why it's making me feel the way I am. Please guys, anything would be great!

My Plasma does the same thing, I'm pretty sure its once a night, not sure if its the same time but its defiantly after midnight. It just comes up with a blank grey/white screen for a couple of minutes and then goes back off, it doesn't make the little tune when its turning on and off either. Is yours a Samsung? I'm 99% sure its supposed to do that - for whatever reason - I recon the company who made your TV could answer for that.
Hope that might make you feel more at ease:)

My guess it is because you have done seances in the past and that brought the spirit in your room.

Before you start getting into some major mumbo jumbo holy processes to dispell spirits; I'd recommend instead that you do two things:

1) you unplug your tv set from the wall socket before retiring.
2) Tighten all of the light bulbes in the house to insure that they've not gotten loose.

And if all of the self same problems still occur- it will be time to try the major mumbo jumbo.

I agree with rook. Probably you have not shielded properly during one of your seances. Do the cleansing job carefully. But, if you still find some things happening, then it is better to contact some of the experts in paranormal, who could drive away the spirits. Not that I am trying to scar you. But it is safer. By your explanation, you told that your mother, who is a non-believer, hesitates to stay in your room and that she also got terribly upset over the sound when she was alone. So, it is better to tread a safer path and contact the experts right away after following the advise given by rook and if it does not give you any peace of mind or remedy.

I do not mean to discount anything you have shared with us here but there are at least two things you have experienced that may have some sort of natural explanation...

First: Your TV turning on/off at night... Does this happen at the same time each time it occurred? If so perhaps the timer is set and it 'automatically' turns on and off to an 'unassigned channel'. This could be what is happening, but if that has been checked I ask this...

Is your TV a very popular model and size and how close are your neighbors? There is a chance that their remote is effecting your TV.

The light in the bathroom... From your description of events it sounds as if the light bulb may have been loose in it's socket... Causing it to light at first... Something then caused it to vibrate just slightly and it lost it's connection with the base and turned off. Then another vibration caused it to 're-connect' and when it did it seemed really bright because your eyes were used to it being 'off'.

You mention you've done seances in the past... Did you ever put up a personal 'shield' while participating?

There is a chance that 'something' attached itself to you during one of these seances, especially if you did not protect yourself. Please feel free to try this Method IF there is something attached it should help you rid yourself of it...

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 keep us updated.
