A Night Gone Horribly Wrong


So I had recently moved into a new house that my family and I thought might work more than our old house, I had always liked paranormal things so I got a ghost hunting app on my IPod. I didn't know at the time that having it might bring some unwanted attention.

It was a Sunday afternoon, and I was messing around with the EVP part of the app and was talking with my dad about how the EVP could pick up anything at any given location when it said "Location". At the time I thought it was just a coincidence that it said that but I was wrong.

After watching a few YouTube videos during the night I decided that I should go to bed around 12 PM. I leave my door open and have 2 cats so before I went to sleep both cats jumped onto my bed so the things that went on downstairs couldn't have been them.

I had finally gotten asleep at 1 in the morning but woke up when a loud bang and some clatters went on downstairs. The cats were still on my bed asleep so I knew it wasn't them. After a while of thinking it was just something falling off a counter it sounded like someone was dragging a dead body to hide it in the house. At that moment I got a bit scared, a normal person might have got out of bed and investigated but I just stayed in my bed and watched the door. The dragging sound went on and then it sounded like someone was throwing pans around the room like they were angry. The thing is the EVP also said they died when a romantic night went horribly wrong.

It was the husband that had died, and that had a fight so the noises now make sense to me, the dragging the clattering.

I haven't heard those noises ever since but, when I recorded in my room it sounded like someone was walking to my room than breathing right in my face I know it wasn't me because when I tried it again by breathing heavily the recorder didn't pick up my breathing, right now I feel like someone is watching me type this story. I don't know what to do now and I feel like if I try recording again it will only worsen the things that have been going on.

Right now I am still staying at my house near Denver (I'm not going to tell exactly where I live) and I always feel an angry presence when I go in my bedroom. So I would love advice on what I should do about the house.

I guess they've been provoked by doing EVP they want your attention but trust me if you delete the app and never do EVP again they wouldn't bother you more!
Just pray to God and everything will be all right!

WishfullNull, I can tell you that no one was up at 1 in the morning and in the kitchen. Although I can see what you mean it's just that I know what the washer sounds like and water going through pipes and all those things you mentioned sound like, I would like to put the recordings up but I don't know how. And my iPod DOES have all of those instruments on it. All I can tell you is that this was not a normal night and the fact that the EVP was talking about the same stuff I was is kind of creepy. So I really think this is something paranormal and I will try to get further proof about the house. And if someone could tell me how to put the recording up I would be grateful

Dear Excitementthrills, I agree with BadJuuJuu on this one... Even if (big IF) your smartphone Did have the sensors & the correct parts to detect an evp signal, it would be just that - a signal. It would not be able to tell you any stories or give you hints about past happenings. What it would do, is tell you whether it was picking up signals or not... Stong signal, weak signal, etc. If your app is giving you words or possible past "happenings", then it is a game that has been pre-programmed to give you these prompts. If you think there is something going on at your house, a good way of going about finding the history is seeing what you can dig up about the history yourself! Visit the local library, search for deeds, past owners, etc. Please do not be afraid... It is very likely that you will be able to debunk the sounds you are hearing - especially if this house is new to you, and you are not used to its sounds. Some things to consider - was there a window left open somewhere? Was the dishwasher or ice maker running? Was the heat or ac on? Could it have been a night when people put out their trash (bang of a door & dragging sounds?) could it have been an animal outside? What about water rushing through the pipes? Do you have any nearby neighbors? When you woke up the next day, was anything amiss? Until you are able to investigate, it is hard for anyone to say for sure. Wish you luck in putting your mind at ease. 😊

If I'm reading this right, there was no activity prior to getting this ap? The thing about those aps is that they aren't truly reliable, more a game than a real tool. A phone, even a smartphone, is just a phone and no ap can change it into a reliable ghost hunting tool. It sounds to me like maybe you let this ap get you a little psyched out. It's important to investigate strange noises, without investigation you can't truly rule out a natural cause. Maybe another family member was in the kitchen? Every possible natural cause has to be ruled out before the paranormal can be seriously considered. I'm sorry, but with the information provided this doesn't truly seem like a paranormal event.
