We have been living in our house for the past 7 years. From day one I have been very aware of entities residing in the house. They (there are 2) don't mean anyone harm. In fact, one of them is completely focused on my mother. Ok, maybe I should explain this statement.
My mother grew up in foster homes and boarding schools. Her mother had died when she was 6-years old and her father had disappeared right after mother's her death. She had been reunited with him later on in her life, but he doesn't really have much of a bearing on the story.
My mother told my sister and I from a very young age that she knew her mother was watching over her. She still says that she wakes up in the middle of the night and her mother is next to the bed, looking down at her. She says she is always calm and she knows that her mom is there to protect her. As strange as it sounds, knowing that my grandmother is an entity following my mom her entire life is comforting. She is also one of the entities in my house, as my mom is currently living with me.
Now, living in a house like this, you learn certain things very early on. The biggest rule in our house is, you never watch movies such as The Ring, The Grudge, Paranormal Activity, in that house. They make things happen to get you to switch the TV off. The one night we tried to watch The Ring in the house, they made the alarm system go off. Now, most people would think that this could just be coincidence, but what they don't know is that we had been living there for about 6 months by then, and my parents had thought it unnecessary to have an alarm system in the house and big dogs outside, so they completely disconnected the alarm. However, that very night, as the movie started, my mom needed something in her room, and as she walked into her bedroom the alarm panel against the wall suddenly came on and was flashing the light indicating "DANGER". She freaked out and ran to the lounge, and when she got there the alarm started screaming.
They immediately switched the TV off and the alarm fell silent. The panel wasn't flashing anymore either. We actually checked the back-up power supply for the alarm system and found it completely disconnected. It has been 7 years now; no one has ever attempted to watch another horror in the house.
I have always felt that one presence is female and one is male. Though, until recently, I thought that the male presence was a friend of mine who had been extremely close to my mom and had died the first year that we lived in the house. But then a friend of mine and her husband came to visit one night and he told me that the male presence was a little boy, around 4 or 5 years old. He said he is completely calm, he doesn't have any negative "vibes", but it bothers me a lot as to why this little boy is in my house.
It then made sense to me why the swing set we had in the house for my boys (one was extremely sick and we couldn't risk him getting sicker by playing outside) had the unusual habit of swinging by itself. I found it amusing that I had sat and watched this happen one day, while my boys were taking a nap, and actually asked the open air around this freely moving swing, "Do you really think it's fair that you play while the twins are sleeping?". The swing slowed down and stopped then. Little kids who come into our house tend to pick up on the little boy. They smile and stare at nothing and ask often if he wants to play with them, this includes my boys. He has a habit of running around the house, starting at the door leading out of the kitchen to the lounge, right around into the dining room and back into the door leading back into the kitchen. And on occasion he will hit a countertop to get your attention, or to give you an unexpected fright.
When my friend's husband told me about that little boy, he also mentioned that the female spirit, whilst also not giving off any threatening feelings, does have a negative connection based on the way she died. He said she must have died in a brutal way. I told him that she had been murdered, and explained to him how. He then jumped right out of his chair and asked me not to tell him more.
What I'd like to know, since I know my gran is connected to my mom, if my mom moves away, will she follow? I would like to bring someone in to cleanse the house, help the little boy find peace, but I don't want to force my gran away from my mom. I'm just afraid that taking such action might anger them.
