Irregular Haunting


My story first started when I was around the age of about 14. I had always been interested in the paranormal but never had any experiences prior to this one.

I was laying in bed in the early hours of the morning when I was awakened by my covers being pulled off me slowly. I gripped them but the force was too strong, then the same happened to my pillow. When I felt like I couldn't hold on any longer my alarm clock went off. I walk across my room to turn it off and notice that there aren't actually any batteries in the clock, after which I hear a bang come from behind me and all of my books had fallen from the flat top of my desk to the other side of my room onto the floor.

About a year later now I had switched rooms with my brother since the last experience and whilst sleeping we all hear a huge bang coming from our living room and then above from my old room (the third floor room). My brother came down saying that he had been pushed out of bed. After that we went to check what had happened downstairs to see that the mirror above our mantlepiece was on the floor, smashed. The kid's toys were all laid out on the floor like they had been tipped out of the box and my mum and step-dad's wedding photo had a slight crack.

A few months ago now I was babysitting my little sister and we decided to play hide and seek and I had to find her. I left my room and saw her just turn away from the bottom of the stairs running and laughing so I follow her and see the door swing open. So, assuming that she is hiding behind the door, I open it and see nothing. Nobody is there. And then I hear her calling for me from upstairs... Yet I know I followed her down.

Later that day whilst putting her to bed I hear the back door slam shut and loud talking and assume that my parents are home so I go down to welcome them only they aren't there. They actually arrived home 2 hours later.

Recently me and my mother, who are exceptionally close, both seem equally sensitive to the paranormal, share a bond from being the only people having to deal with my abusive father and are the only ones in the family with blue eyes, were talking in the living room when we smelled a strong tobacco scent and heard cutlery shuffling from the kitchen. After this she said, "I hope Hillary (her mother-in-law) doesn't see the crack on the wedding photo" because she was visiting. A split second after that the photo fell to the floor and smashed: the glass, and even the frame. My younger sister (aged 5) walked in and said, "Why is Jimmy on the floor?" Jimmy is Hillary's husband, my mother's father-in-law and was in the wedding photo that fell down because he was ill at the time of their wedding. He also died shortly after, however long before my sister was born and she has no way of knowing who he is or his name. Aside from this photo there is also a photo of me at my prom on the mantlepiece in which there is a crack through my face.

I have checked the house's history and the previous owner, a man, did die here of heart attack. Aside from that it could either be my deceased great grandmother, my grandfather or my step-grandfather (Jimmy) as they were all very close to me and my mother.

Sorry for the long winded story. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Macca:
I hope you didn't take me wrong... Did not mean any disrespect to your title just saw the irony, that's all. And I get goofy when I am tired. Thanks for sharing.

I named the story irregular haunting due to the time frame in which the events happen, the incidents are very unpredictable, and yes I am still living there.
And thanks for the suggestion however it is not my house and I doubt everybody else would be willing to go through with the method.

I just have to say this..."Irregular Haunting" as versus what a Regular Haunting? 😉 Anyway, sounds as if there is activity going on in the house. Are you still living there?

You must be braver than me - I know that at 14 if some 'force' had been wrangling my blanket and pillow from me, I would not have needed the alarm clock to summon me from the bed. Indeed I probably would have screamed my head off, while still in the bed, or while running from the room. Initially, I thought perhaps you were dreaming BUT then there are the other incindents to take into account.
Perhaps this is a canidate for Rook's Cleansing Method. He's another poster on here, and many say it really works. I'm suggesting it because the 'spirit (s) ' are being destructive.
I'll look it up, and copy it here. Rook won't mind as he is a good old soul, who believes in helping those he can.
Ah, here we go:

Rook's 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.)
