First a little back ground, all the women in my mother's line are sensitive in some way. I grew up moving a LOT my mother loved haunted houses and we would move in and she would do whatever she did and when it quieted down, normally about a year later, we would move again. And it would start all over. My mother is a very strict person, not very religious but very in love with god if that makes any sense. There are a lot of stories about my birth, to many to go into right now, but my mother found out she was pregnant with me the day after my 9mo old brother died.
All my life I have had what my family calls gremlins for lack of a better term. My mom said they showed up when I was born. And were great company when I was little but I don't rember much of that. I always thought they were hers growing up, but when I moved out with my first husband they moved with me, and have ever since.
My first husband and my current husband were made firm believers after they made fun of them and suddenly there lives were turned upside down. They love to take things and hide them. We will find them days later in the freezer or the bag of flour or somewhere else weird, or we wouldn't find them at all. Joking about them or saying they are not real makes them very mad. When they get mad they will slam things or throw things, generally be annoying.
No one I know has ever gotten a good look at them you just see a shadow about 2 ½ to 3 Ft. Tall, running past a door way or behind something. They have NEVER touched or hurt anyone that I know of. They don't like fighting or too much activity. When I had cats they mostly ignored them and so do the dogs I have now. Me and my family are used to them and co-exist mostly in peace. My kids do warn their friends some times before they come over that odd things happen. They tend to be more active during storms, but seem to be active during both night and day. I mostly leave them alone, but if they are being annoying and I am trying to sleep I will go out in the living room and ask them to be quiet, or tell them it is bed time and they need to be quiet, most the time they do. They hate it when we rearrange or paint or anything like that. So far as I can tell there are 3 of them but who really knows.
For a long time I tried everything I could find to get rid of them, but nothing worked and some stuff made them very mad. Strange though they seem to like it when we burn sage and my husband does that a lot. So basically I was wondering if anyone else has had stuff like this happen to them? Or any idea what "they" might be?
