In my first post I mentioned that we didn't experience anything paranormal until we had renovations done in our home. Around that time and shortly after, my mother, who was dying of cancer, came to live with us and she died in our home. My mother had a peaceful death, she slipped into a coma and died. A few weeks later my father who was also sick with cancer came to live with us for a few weeks.
My father was a different story, he suffered so much and I found it hard to deal with. He also questioned his faith and claimed that there was vicious dogs around his bed. He ended up in the hospital where he died three days later. Around that time we began to hear objects falling on our hardwood floors but when I went to investigate there was nothing amiss. I have two cats and a small dog and they tend to pile on my bed. One afternoon I heard a big bang coming from my sun room. At that moment the cats leaped from my bed and went to investigate. I followed the cats and nothing was out of place.
One night my husband got up to use the bathroom off our bedroom and he heard someone walking through the hallway toward the bathroom door. He made some noises and the footsteps stopped right at the door. He checked the house to see if the kids were awake but both kids were sleeping.
One day after hearing things falling again and nothing on the floor I tried to communicate with the spirit. I asked if someone was there and to please knock twice on the wall. I knocked first and I waited for a reply but nothing happened. Before Christmas I was hanging pictures on the wall in the dining room and family room when the lights in the family room turned off by itself. I am a Christian and I find these experiences disturbing. I tried to turn the lights back on with no success, so I tried again and nothing worked.
So I began to pray out loud by calling on the name of Jesus, I prayed for Jesus and his angels for protection. I told the spirit to leave my home and I asked Jesus and his angels to guide this spirit to a restful place. A few minutes later I was able to turn the lights on.
Things were quiet for a few weeks than on a Saturday evening we were all home in different parts of the house doing our thing, when I heard the loudest pounding, two to be exact, coming from the dining room wall. I sprinted out of bed and found my husband looking at the dining room wall looking stunned. He told me that he walked by the wall and the two loud knocks happened a few inches behind him at his chest level. The knocks were so loud that even the children who were in their bedroom heard it to.
A week later my daughter was in her bedroom alone when she heard huge bangs like someone was trying to kick a door in or a wall. She was terrified and called me to come home right away. I got home but everything looked normal. My cats are skittish and jumpy.
I don't understand this and I would love some feedback.
