I am new to this site, but have been interested in psychic matters for several years. I thought you might be interested to hear about one of my former homes. It was an ex-council house built in the 1960's, which is relatively modern but it needed a lot of redecorating. However, it meant that it was cheap for such a big house. When we viewed the property, the house seemed OK but for some reason I felt uneasy in the back bedroom.
We were desperate to move and our budget was low, so despite my dad asking "Are you sure?" I jumped straight in. It turned out to be the worst 2 years of my life. The first day we moved in, I realized that we had made a mistake. I could deal with the dirt, but the place left me feeling depressed and withdrawn.
After a few weeks, we noticed that the atmosphere would become repressive at certain times of the day. It would literally go from being quite bright to miserable. We had 2 birds, whose cages were kept in the living room. They changed from being happy to being withdrawn and quiet. When I practiced my flute in the upstairs box-room, I could hear someone walking around in the room next door. Whenever I investigated, there would be no one there and my husband would be sitting on the computer downstairs.
At night, I would shut the door to the back bedroom or pull it across the doorway when it was off its hinges because I had to walk past it to get to the bathroom. I also felt uneasy at the top of the stairs, like I was going to fall. Once, I saw something with long hair, but never told my husband.
Every evening, I would be laying on the sofa in the living room while my husband was on the computer and something cold would come in and sit by my feet. I also felt uneasy standing at the top of the stairs. Also, if you stood in the kitchen you could sometimes see "something" or someone standing in the hallway. The most frightening thing that happened to me there though was when I stood at the bottom of the stairs early one evening. I looked up and saw a shadowy column came out of the bathroom and move across the landing. I am not easily frightened, but will admit that after that I never stood in the hallway without the both the upstairs and downstairs lights on ever again!
The interesting thing is that my neighbors told me they used to hear someone walking across their upstairs hallway from the bathroom until they bought a dog and it stopped.
We managed to stay there for just under 2 years before moving house again. The new place was a like breath of fresh air. As soon as we moved into our new home, our birds changed back into happy little things again. During the first week in the new house my husband admitted that he'd seen "something" with long hair in the old one, but had not told me because he thought I'd be scared. Something cold used to touch his shoulder and he'd also felt uneasy at the top of the stairs.
A good friend told us he'd hated the old house and would not stand in the living room because he felt "something" there. I'd always wondered why he'd stood outside or in the garage! Another friend, who doesn't believe in spirit admitted that she'd hated the back bedroom.
I've moved again since. I am glad to say that this house is not haunted either!
