Myself and my partner have just moved into a lovely semi-detached brick house in a cute street in Prahran, Melbourne, Australia.
I've always been hyper aware of supernatural beings, and haven't had any negative experiences yet. We moved into to this house around a month ago, and the vibe was quote dark and negative. I was also seeing shadows in the corner of my eye, bad dreams and an all around bad feeling. So I did a sage cleanse, and after that the house feels great! A much lighter feeling, and pleasant dreams.
But for the last three evenings, I've heard a man coughing in my lounge room when I've been in bed, reading. Always quite late this occurs, and my partner has been asleep. So she hasn't heard it. It's a rather brief cough, and it's definitely a male - it's almost like he's clearing his throat whilst reading the paper, very casual if you might say!
I've got two cats (they both wear bells on collars) and they sleep in the lounge room and also in my room at night, but last night they were in the lounge room - when I heard the cough again, I heard both of my cats bells jingle, like they were startled - but were obviously not phased and fell back asleep. I'm a firm believer in cats being a type of medium, and I trust there observations.
Basically, I'm curious... I'm wondering if this is a spirit that was previously living in the house a long time ago? As it's an older Victorian style design.
I don't feel threatened, at all. It's kind I oddly comforting. I'm just curious as to why it's just the cough I'm hearing, and not words or movement? And if anyone else has had something similar occur?
