Afraid For My Daughter


My family and I have been in our house for six months now. Until this morning the only "experiences" that have happened have been by my wife which I have kind of disregarded and attributed to being in a new place. She says she has felt uncomfortable and seen a few fleeting shadows here and there.

Two nights ago as we were relaxing in our living room we both distinctly heard someone trying to open our back door. So much so that we both went for firearms and fully expected to encounter someone in our backyard. Nothing, no one there. Ok, so last night my wife got out of bed to get a drink from the kitchen and the kitchen light was on. No biggy, she just forgot to turn the light out before coming to bed so I thought. This morning my world has been turned upside down. We awoke to every cupboard in our kitchen wide open. I have never experienced anything like this and to be quite honest am searching for some kind of logical explanation.

Has anyone out there dealt with these kind of experiences? My primary concern is this. We have an 11 year old daughter with Rett Syndrome who doesn't have the ability to communicate with us verbally, she doesn't walk, is wheelchair bound and I am worried how this will affect her. She doesn't have the ability to remove herself from any kind of bad situation or anything like that. What do we do?

I am freaking out right now and desperately want to understand what is happening in my home. Any help, guidance or recommendations anyone can provide would be tremendously appreciated.

How have things progressed in your household regarding the suspected poltergeist activity? Going by how you explained your daughters you daughters situation, I had a few thoughts about what might be happening in your home. Of course I don't know enough to be very certain but I have a few thoughts so here goes. Since your daughter is in a position where she isn't physically able to effectively express some of her feelings and thoughts the way that she may want to, she might have a considerable amount of frustration. The fact that she is beginning to go through puberty may add to that. She may be beginning to experience hormone fluctuations and the major mood swings and heightened emotions that usually come with it. This might all be creating a perfect storm. Could it be that this is her way of relieving built up stress and overwelming emotions? Or I might just be a means of communication for her alone with out puberty induced stress.
It maybe a haunting or poltergeist too, or maybe a prank or break-in I am not an expert so of course I can't say for sure. I would look into doing a cleansing or having one done just to be on the safe side. But that is just what I would do. If you don't know of anyone in your area maybe someone on here might know of someone who lives close to you that can help. If in fact it is your daughter she has a special gift and it may in fact be a blessing for her to have some way of effecting change on her environment. It may in fact give her a sense of personal accomplishment. I can't imagine how hard it would be to have so so little personal control over almost every aspect of life. I wish you the best and hope that your family finds an answer that brings a sense of happiness to your home. 😉

Sorry to hear about your story. My advice to you is to remain calm easy to say hard to do I know I've been there. If it's a negative presence it's through fear that they gain power.

Denying them that fear denies them power. Secondly it may be possible that those events may be due to your daughter unknowingly using teleknesis.

Because it's a rare ability to have it may have gone unnoticed to this day. Also her having retts syndrome could've attracted entities.

Good luck to you

All kidding aside, if this s a true experience then Mysterylady has a point, but in may not be a 'spirit' causing the activity. Poltergeist can be a 'spirit' that has been attracted to the energy 'generated' as 'pre-teens' go through puberty... There is also a chance that it is not a spirit (I 'feel' this is more likely) but a release of psychokinetic energy (think moving things with ones mind) from your daughter. If this is the case the activity will 'peak' then 'reduce in frequency' as she move through this 'change' in her body.

I wish there were 'more substantial' studies into how puberty and 'psychokinesis' are linked... And for that matter the 'reports' of children 'challenged' in one way or another being 'more sensitive / closer to' to the paranormal.

(I get it... So if I say 'clown'...)

Ask about your neighbors to find if they saw anyone suspicious around your house. Also did you check the house hist-ory... If activities continue update us... Someone might be able to help you maybe.

And alway remember first logical then supernatural. B positive; don't worry to much. 😊

Did it ever strike you that somebody might have broken in? Seems like the logical answer.

Did you guys actually say "clowns"? Where in the world did you come up with clowns? I have heard of the Harlequin which is a rare type of manifestation and it is not good.

I am not a psychic or medium. I am only a mother who lost her only child to a drunk driver 41 months ago. In my grief, I have explored every avenue I could find for peace and understanding. So I have read a lot about spiritual activity. First of all I am a devout Christian. We began having "things" happen shortly after my daughter's death. As a matter of fact she appeared to her cousin the night that she died. She begin appearing to her two year old nephew; other children in the family told about seeing her or playing with her; my husband and I heard her walking through our house; heard doors slam; saw strange lights or would suddenly smell her. As I said it's been 41 months and her visits continue and are becoming stronger. I can't tell you about the different types of "ghosts" or "Poltergeists". What I can say is that I believe when we die our spirits live on and go to the heavenly realm with God. I believe that God allows spirits to visit those they love and move back and forth between realms. I believe "bad" spirits are more than likely confused spirits who need help getting home. If I were you, I would take my wife and child and I would walk through each room of your home and I would say a prayer in each room of the house, outloud to God. I would ask God to bless your home and your family and to keep you safe from any harm. After you pray, I would go back through the house and I would address the spirit. I would tell the spirit that you are sorry however they are not welcome in your home, that you have a small child with physical problems and your responsibility was to your child. Tell the spirit you cannot help them and they must leave. I hope you find a solution.

I believe you have a poltergeist probably because a 11 year old daughter that's going through puberty and she probably has seen some activity but she can not communicate this to you. I'm not familiar with her condition but I would take steps to protect her. Poltergeist are not harmful but they are frightening. They feed off of our fear and get stronger by it. You didn't mention if you are a religious guy so I'm going to suggest you and wife speak firm when you feel the poltergeist there to leave your home and family alone. It's your home, your family tell it under no certain terms that bother your family it is not welcome. These is hard speaking from experience try not to show fear. It may take time to leave but it realizes that it's not feared it has no chose to leave. Put some religious items around but if you don't have faith and believe it won't help and if not that's ok to it is still your home and family. Best wishes neighbor from Mississippi.

I can understand your concerns. Keeping your daughter safe would be paramount. Change the locks, get a security system, do something. I think someone is messing with you.

Please keep us updated.

Thank you and good luck.

I am willing to help, you will have to be open to supernatural solutions because it is a supernatural problem. This to me seems like the early stages of entity infestation. I would recommend saying psalm 91 and 71 out of the king james bible before going to bed and when waking. Also leave bowls of white vinegar mixed with sea salt in rooms and let it evaporate, refill as needed. This is what I specialize in, so if you truly need help or have questions pm me.

Is there a chance a living person was messing with your door? You said you went for firearms, I assume you're like me and keep your guns in a secure location. In the time it took to retrieve your weapons and get to the back door, could someone have gotten out of sight? Since this was nighttime, it would have been easier to hide than in daylight. Were there any tracks? When you moved in, did you change all the locks? If the locks are the same as when you moved, I would change them right away. The door incident could be someone trying to mess with you, so get your doors and windows secure.
If there is a possibility someone could have access to your home, address that right away. Someone with too much time on their hands and no sense of decency could be responsible for the open cabinets and the light on. Make absolutely certain there is no possibility of a living prankster being involved.

I've had a few cupboard doors open. I'm not sure if they were paranormal, but I tried to open them without touching them (I.e. Stomping all over the kitchen floor) and it didn't work. So who knows?

iam sorry for your experience, I can't imagine being in that situation, I have read when you literally start seeing things moved or out of place it may be pltergiest related. I have had my bad experience you can read it if you like its called. Spirit that doesn't sleep... You an try to have some light or night lights around your home, evil spirits don't like light, at least that's what I think. Read the bible out loud before you sleep and if this continues I reommend having your daughter sleep in your room. Keep in touch. By the way what does rn/ mean? ❤
