The first time that I experienced the paranormal occurred when I was 13 years of age to roughly 21. We lived in an old Victorian house and on many occasions myself and my brother would hear a young girl crying.
On one occasion while sitting on my bed reading while my cat sat beside me, I heard a girl's cry coming from the hall. At that moment my cat and myself turned our heads in the direction that the crying was coming from. I looked around the house and found nothing because I was alone with our cat. My parents were sitting outside and my brother and younger sister were playing with friends.
The only other incident was experienced by my brother, he was in the basement and he saw a woman dressed in a long dress standing in the corner by a closet. My poor brother ran up the stairs, he was terrified and pale.
I got married and moved and did not experience anything else until 3 years ago. My husband and I were looking for a bungalow type house because we wanted to sell our two story home. I, my husband and my two children went to look at a home where the agent was waiting for us. As soon as I walked in I had a very heavy, sad feeling. While we were walking in the hall we stopped at the entrance to the living-room and I asked the agent if anyone had died there and at that moment my son wrapped his arms around me and proceeded to tell us that he had just seen a man sitting on the sofa looking at the big bay window. My son was pale and started shaking. He described to me that the man was solid but he had a golden glow around his being. He was wearing a yellow dress shirt and he seemed obvious to our presence. The next day our agent called us back and told us that indeed a man died there by suicide. We quickly scratched that home off our list.
We did find another bungalow that we all loved and when we walked through the house everything seemed fine and peaceful. In our first year living in our home we didn't experience anything strange at all. During our second year we had renovations done to the house and this is when we started to experience strange things.
While I was in the kitchen my mixer turned on by itself and I was baffled by this because I had this mixer for many years and this was odd. A few weeks later I was in the kitchen cooking and my son was in the kitchen with me when the mixer turned on again. One night I woke up in the middle of the night and I heard a loud motor running, I woke up my husband so he could go and check it out. What he saw was mind boggling, the sound of an old fashion mixer was coming from my mixer but my mixer was off and there were many lights flashing on the back splash of the kitchen and around the mixer.
Does anyone know what this is? I will write again and let you know about the other strange experiences that we've had in this house. I didn't believe in ghosts but now I do.
