Beads Taken Off by Ghost?


Here's the gist. My best friend (chrissy) has a ghost that came to her door a couple of times and it really freaked her out so one night she put prayer beads on the doorknob and it didn't reappear for the past year. Last friday I went to go changing in her room but the door wouldn't shut because there were things blocking it, so I took the stuff off and put it in her laundry basket. I closed it and started changing (no one was home but chrissy and her step sister), they were all downstairs, and the door opened, I shouted "chrissy, wait, I'm changing" then I closed it back. It immediately opened right back and I said "stop it", then I tried to close it again, I leaned on the door, and I felt the door knob twist so I open it but no one was there. I went downstairs and told them the whole story but they said they were down there the whole time then chrissy asked me: "did you take the beads off the door?" I told her I did, then we all freaked out and sent her step sister upstairs to put it back on. However, they weren't there at first, but when we looked back on the doorknob they were suddenly there again. I know I took everything off the door... It was a scary night.

Ok so you said that the beads can keep the ghost away right? If it does the how would the ghost put it back?

Very interesting story. I'm not sure, but it's possible there is more than one ghost. One could be the one that stood in your friends doorway while the other is aware of how much your friend dislikes this and was trying to help by preventing the other spirit from being able to do it. I've heard stories before where one ghost ind of referee the other to protect the people living in the house.

Tbh, what I'm thinking is maybe the 'ghost' wanted you to put the beads back on because they know your friend doesn't like it and so they tried to open the door to get them to put back.

Nice story btw, thanks for sharing.

Woah, that is creepy. But you'd think that the ghost wouldn't want to put them back because it would keep them away. Maybe it was a prankster who also was nice enough to put things back.

Most demonic can not enter a room with a crucifix or any other religious paraphanalia. That is why the "thing" couldn't come into the room with the prayer beads on the door knob. Keep them there, maybe bless the house, or smudge it with Sage. Good luck!

It does sound as if the prayer beads did their "trick" doesn't it. What I don't understand though, is if the beads were for protection and they had kept the ghosties away for an entire year before this incident, what would make the ghostie put them back up? Some things I guess we are just not meant to understand about unearthly entities. Thanks for the story.

Please forgive me, but the part "...then we all freaked out and sent her step sister upstairs to put it back on..." seriously made me chuckle. Frightening event for you all, though, no doubt!

I had a similar exprience once, although I'm not completly sure it was a ghost, it was mysterious nonetheless. I was around 14 and was alone in the house. I went to the bathroom and sat on the toilet, doing my thing and reading some Time Magazine. All of a sudden, the door start slamming, opening and closing, like if one of my brothers was trying to scare me. I shouted the usual "Stop it you moron it's not funny", but it continued. Now that was like 19 years ago so I don't remember very well, but I think the door knob was also moving, because in my mind, there was no explanation for seeing that door acting like that outside of a little brother playing tricks on me. Anyway, I finished my business and looked outside to punish the little brotherly devil, but no one was in the house. I tried to rationalize it on some strange wind phenomenon in the house, but I was freaked for a while. Now I just learned a few weeks ago that one of the family that inhabited this house in the past had a little girl that drowned.
