I Am Scared Something Is In My House


I don't know what to do. No one will believe me because it has mostly happened at night when my fiance is asleep or when he is out and it is just me and my baby daughter. Please, I need advice.

Me and my fiance have been in bed and I look over his shoulder and in the closet there was an old man reaching out with long claw-like fingers on him. I freaked out and he disappeared. Then my partner told me his ex used to think she could see Freddy Kruger in the same spot. Nothing happened after that and I put it behind me.

Months later I had our daughter and things started happening frequently. Everything electrical starts flickering, sometimes I've heard footsteps upstairs when there's no one there. I've seen shadows flit in and out of the doorways downstairs. I was washing the pots one night and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a figure step into the doorway. It looked that much human, about 6 ft. I thought it was the fiance home, but when I looked about properly, about to say hi, there was nothing there.

My daughter was about 6 months old and she went into the walker for the first time. Her head snapped forward and it looked exactly like someone just slapped the back of her head. She started screaming in pain. She was unsettled one night, very hysterical and really didn't want to be in her cot or the room itself, so she slept in my room. Next day her room was trashed. Drawers were open and clothes and toys everywhere.

I've heard a man talking in her room through the wall and she talks back. I can hear her clearly babbling like how toddlers do, but can never make out what he says. It's really muffled.

Last night it sounded like someone was running their nails down the wall in the hall. And the next day just inside my daughter's room on the wall it was like someone had taken a knife and just went crazy at the wall, scratches everywhere.

Things that have been on the counter in the kitchen and I've sat in the lounge, and there has been a big bang and the items have been on the floor in the middle of the kitchen. A bottle of wine was at the back of the counter and me and my-mother-in law were in the lounge, there was a smashing sound we both ran in and it just sat on the floor intact. She thought it was weird and now she is refusing to acknowledge it ever happened.

Sometimes either the lounge or my daughter's room starts filling up with almost like mist or smoke and when this happens and noise starts. It exactly like the noise that happens when someone trying to get a lighter going. Now my daughter is 1 and she points at empty spaces and says "look" all the time and will mostly start screaming or crying shouting, "NO, NO, NO, GO AWAY." And will only calm down if we go into a different room. She has also started saying "ghost." I have no idea where it has come from.

Also, when I am upstairs I get the feeling I am being watched. If I go into my daughter's room and stand facing the cot, I feel like there is someone standing in the corner behind me. I don't feel safe at the top of the stairs. I always feel like there's someone behind me and something bad is going to happen.

Once me and my partner were about to go upstairs to bed and the landing light was on. The light reflects into a wall at the bottom of the stairs and in the pool of light I saw a head and shoulders of someone. It was there for a few seconds in then sped to the left into the shadows. I have recreated this and I can get the same thing if I stand at the top of the stairs. But my shadow is always to sharp and clear. This shadow was almost like fuzzy at the edges.

If I go into the back garden and my daughter's curtains are open, I get this really horrible feeling that someone is in the window and I can't take my eyes off it. My mother-in-law has also admitted that this happens when she goes there.

Do you think it is bad whatever it is?

hi there
1st of all i'm so sorry you're going through this, you don't have to believe but I should share what i've learned by accidentally stumbling upon the spiritual journey as a teen almost 20 years ago (i'm a medium with some intuition but don't work with it)
A good spirit certainly wouldn't make you feel this frightened, nothing you're seeing is in your head, you even were sane enough to do a mental check up so that should be enough, don't let people put you down insinuating you are crazy

I don know the names but i'm not the medium who can listen but once this poor homeless guy was arguing apparently with an invisible entity and people were laughing and getting away from him, I looked carefully in the direction he was staring at and when got close I heard a horrible man harassing him, I imagined then maybe that's how his life ended like that, maybe my empathy opened this listening for his sake cause the homeless looked at me and recognized and asked me desperately: you can hear him too don't you? I nodded and was angry at everyone so I also replied pretty loud that yes I could and he is horrible, there was such a relief in his eyes I wanted to cry, I asked my guide to take him away, I felt the bully entity was the homeless'past life enemy

When we reincarnate all our flaws, accomplishment, enemies, karma comes back to us that's why for example suicide do not end but triple our suffering because on the other side we just realize we exist and with the flesh we're even more vulnerable and the pain is worst

The only way for you to heal, and this torment you are going through is to right wrongs, like constructing a better caracter, you can do volunteer work, help every and each living being that comes your way, going vegan for the consumption of poor animals brings the pain, anger or fear they had and aside from many things are oke of the responsible for cancer and depression, try to meditate and when the dark times comes don't feel like a victim but call upon Jesus Christ and take command of your house, send them away from your home even speaking it aloud but not with hate, but as much love as you can, we are all Brothers and that's a very sick soul that's been bothering you, also check in your heart if you hate or resent someone and as you can try to forgive them

Spirits stick with us attracted by our own flaws: resentment, jealousy, addiction, arrogance, selfishness: we all have something to work on and it took me so long to realize but spirits don't harrass me anymore and I also finally ended up meeting my Guide

I studied hard most religions that exist realizing most if not all is a form of either control or wanting my money but Spiritism (not a religion) proved for more than 15 years now never to take but only give and gave me a rational and reasonable explanation of the universe, if you want read The book of spirits by Allan Kardec or any from Chico Xavier

I'll pray for you know and really hope you realize you're not alone, or crazy and that you have sovereignty over your soul, house, YOUR LIFE

Just to begin with they are very wrong to enter your sanctuary

sorry I haven't been on in a while. I blessed the house. But first I took control and told it what I was doing and we didn't want it here. I haven't heard or seen anything since I blessed the house. No cold spots, no shadows nothing. I feel safe again and Violet is a lot happier lately, shes happy to be in her room and is extremly happy little girl. Thank you all for your help. Got a happy family again

As a young mother myself I cannot even begin to imagine how you must be feeling. I honestly have to say that you are very brave because I don't think I would be able to handle a situation like yours. I would be terrified out of my mind. I don't have any 'advice' but I just want to say to try and stay strong and pray and God will protect you and your family. I really hope you can find some answers and get rid of whatever is causing your problems.

Take care and keep us updated

God bless

my partner is a few years older than me. We both had ghostly experiences and kids. Mine was good and I was friends with the ghost in my house growing up. However the haunting in my partners bedroom at the time was so severe his parents had to bring the church out twice. I've tried finding out what happened but he says he doesn't remember and his parents don't want to talk about it. Thank you rook I will do it tomorrow. And thank you caz. I'll try what rook said first and then I have the number as back up just incase. X

Violetsmummy...Any spirit who would slap a baby on the head is 'not' good, whether it's a former resident or not. It's very easy to get help here in the UK. Just pick up the phone and dial 0207 931 6488. You will be through to S.A.G.B [Spiritualist Assoc. Of Great Britain]. They have people who are well used to dealing with nasty spirits. My sister had to do it last year, when her teenage daughter got punched on the back of her head. Her house is now peaceful, after years of disturbance. Call them now.

Lets list some facts you have given us, either in the experience you submitted or in comments afterwards...

First: There seems to be a spirit of an 'old man' with 'claw' like fingers in the closet of your bedroom, he has been seen by more than one person.

Second: You are 18 years old... (Your partner is... How Old?)

Third: Your daughter is now a little over 1 year old.

Forth: Feelings of being watched from a certain window /room of the home, experienced by more than one person.

Fifth: Shadows, human looking seen out of the corner of the eyes... One seen almost directly seemed to be 'fuzzy' around the edges.

Sixth: Unseen 'something' striking your daughter. (Not Good)

Seventh: (I'll use this for the rest of the things...) Objects moving, footsteps, other odd noises. The biggest of events like this being the scratches on the walls.

Reading the first question that came to my mind was this...

Have you or your partner ever experienced Poltergeist activity while growing up? If either of you have the energy of having a baby may have caused that 'activity' to start up again.

What do you know of the History of the home you live in? This 'old man' you saw in the corner may just be very 'protective' of a home he views as 'his'. Add the nervous, excited and 'confused' energy of being a new parent into an environment that he can already manifest in and there is a chance 'he' is able to 'strike out' with more physical outbursts. Outbursts which he has directed at the individual least likely able to defend themselves, your daughter.

Just a couple of ideas as to what you may be experiencing, now you asked via e-mail and someone else mentioned a method I use and offer to individuals who may need a Cleansing / Shielding... I will say this now. This 'recipe' is designed to clear out negative energies and to 'push and keep out' malevolent 'spirits / entities'. If it is the 'spirit' of a former owner who just happens to be a 'crotchety old man' you may not notice a difference. Here it is, I feel as if it should help, but it may take more than one application to have a full effect...

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.

i use the ouija board a lot on investigations and have done for years.
From what you have described, I really believe this is NOT something you want to communicate with, especially via the board. You would by using it, be allowing this thing closer to you - kind of an invitation if you will.
Problems can occour when conversing with 'the wrong' type of spirits, even when the board is used correctly, but can leave damaging results if it were not used correctly. Please do not think of trying that. I do not like the thought of this thing you describe, at all.
Tell it things if you need to, as it is YOUR home, not it's. But do not try to communicate with it using one of those. It will not help matters, and has a good chance of worsening them.

this sounds dangerous and threatening. It seems like it has a connection with your daughter seeing as it has slashed her walls and spoken to her. It maybe wants something from you. Some say not to communicate with the paranormal and to leave them be but it's entirely up to you. If I were you I would get an ouija board an find out. This spirit seems confident so i'm sure you will get a response with it. If you do not want to talk to it then I would suggest getting the house blessed and if that does not work, then move out because I don't think this spirit is a good one and is looking for trouble. I hope you solve your problem.

It sounds like a serious haunting to me, of a powerful spirit. If I were you, I would do a house cleansing and possibly get someone in to get rid of him. I live in the USA so can't go there, but email me if you want me to try to read the house.

''i think you are right about the fact that they hate babies crying. She was throwing a tantrum last night screaming and crying and from where I was sat I could see in the kitchen and all these black shadows forming and flitting around.''

I'm not saying they don't hate babies crying. But when a baby cries it is expressing extreme emotion in the only way it knows how. Spirits and such, are known to thrive around energies and emotions.

Was well written. You should consider moving somewhere else until either some credited spirit (none charging) invetigators, or mediums, or priest, or someonee with knowledge - has a look.
That would be my advice. Take your daughter to spend a few weeks with her grandmother and seek good help.

As your fiance said it had been see by his ex, i'd assume it's attached to the home.
While you are there, frequiently remind yourself that it's your home. Say it out loud if you have to, that nothing and no one else has the right to be there and must leave. In the name of jesus, if you so wish. Demand it. If you feel threatened.
All just idea's, which at times have worked for me.
Wish you all the best and will send a prayer your way tonight.

Also, I would like to say. Like you said, It's best to try to get rid of this yourself before bringing in the option of moving. If you have tried and have no other options, than it may be best. But, I strongly suggest you let this spirit know that it your house, not theirs.

If it was just you and your fiance maybe you could fight it off... But with a vulnerable little girl I'm not sure it's a good idea to stay. She can obviously see it better than adults can and it would be so easy for her to be taken advantage of. They way she got slapped in the head is so scary! Since she's just a baby and can't fight for herself... I would say take the safest way and move. (If that's possible).

This sounds like a very serious Haunting. Thank you for sharing your story. Your daughter is at a sensitive age where she can see spirits. This particular one is aiming at your daughter mostly, because it knows how much it upsets you. They feed off your fear. I suggest you tell it sternly to leave. But as temping as it may be, Don't use a Ouija Board, or ANY type of ritual. This can, as already said, make things so much worse. If you attend a church, ask your Priest to bless the house. And try looking into the history of the house, this may answer some of your questions about who this spirit is, and why its there. Just make sure that you make it clear that it is NOT welcome there and needs to leave your home. Sound stern and hide any of your fear as much as possible. Hope this helps.

some things that can help cut down on manifestation is sea salt mixed with vinegar left in bowls throughout the house. Refill as needed. Also prayers that invoke divine energy such as psalm 91 and 71 or the various others like the Saint Michael prayer also help. You may need to have the house cleansed. If you need help on how to do this pm me.

Take care.

Well obviously there is a spirit or entity in your house, There are ways of speaking to these spirits but it can be dangerous to do so. First ask the spirit why it is here, if their is no reply wait until night, if you hear voices then this spirit is trying to contact you but I stongly advise you do not do a ritual, this could result in possesion or death, Ask the spirit to leave a sign if it does and it is in latin or a unreadable it will probably be a deamon from hell, this I one of the common things that happen to people, If you are sure this is a demon and you don't want it I recommend getting a member of the church and letting him do the work.

First off you do not need to move claim the house as your own and do not show any signs of breaking because spirit sounds like it is a demonic entity if you show that you have the authority with the help of prayers the entity will have to leave.

I also Suggest for you to look up another user on this site who goes by the name of 'Rook' he has many useful tips and prayers of protection that you can use to your advantage.

Thank you for sharing and I pray that the entity will not harm you and your child.

go with your nature mother instinct. Its for her safety also and yours. If there's a reason that you have to stay. The best thing to do in my opinion is connect with your faith and your religion. I'm catholic and I had a priest and the whole fam cleanse the house with holy water and prayed. But sometimes when that occurs. The evil spirit would take more negative energy and cause you more problems at the end. Or figure out the history of the house. Who died there and have a spirit investigator figure something out. It wil lnot leave unless you fight it. But it seems like the signs you mentioned something evil, intentions are to try and do harm. And not to scare you but evil spirits hate the sound of a baby crying that's why I think it targeted your daughters room mostly. You have to be strong and fight
