Her Money Keeps Disappearing


Hi, I have always been interested in the occult, ghosts, voodoo, etc. These things have always fascinated me. I have never had such physical encounters as the ones I have been reading. I have been searching the net for information on such topics for quite sometime.

For the past few years something strange has been happening at my home. It may be strange but it is true. My mom lost some money a few years ago. It was a small sum. We never thought much about, thinking she may have spent it and forgotten it. However the money kept continuously missing. My family consists of 5 people... My mom, dad, younger brother, grandma and myself. Initially my mom thought that maybe we kids were taking it. She did not want to believe that, so she started locking her purse in the cupboard and she would keep the keys with her all the time.

But the missing money still continued. Now it has come to such a state that she keeps some money and she is scared to count it again fearing it maybe short. Someone suggested she change the position of the cupboard... She did that. It did not help. People gave her loads of suggestions like keep it in a round container or keep a god's picture with the money or change the locker. She did all. She first got herself a new locker and then a new cupboard. It still continues.

A family friend suggested we meet a spiritual person who maybe able to help. None of us believe in such things but she still went. The guy told her that there is a spirit who is troubling us this way. We obviously did not believe the crap. She consulted another lady. This part is interesting... The lady never asked her what the problem was. She gave her the solution. My mother was shocked.

What we were told is that the place where my home is built is a place where, in ancient times, a temple was built. It is a custom in India that some treasure (these days it's money) is buried beneath the God's idol. The treasure that was supposed to be there was supposedly taken away by someone. Later when the house was built, the spirits responsible for guarding the treasure stayed back. Now she says that the spirits feel responsible for losing the treasure, so they are trying to get it back. But she wonders why it is her? None of us loose the money except her. She does not have an answer for this but this seems to be the only explanation.

Anyone have any idea?

Okay I don't feel so crazy. I have had money come up missing from my appartment also. I'm at almost 600. 00 now within just a month or so. I have even had money come up missing out of a locked safe. I smudged the house when I first moved in, like I always have done when I move in somewhere new. But, I don't know what to do now. Is the money just gone? Is there a way to make the ghost give the money back? Do I call a Priest? When you live pay day to pay day missing money is a hard one to take.

Try leaving a small amount of money like an offering making sure to tell the spirit that it is for him and he should respect and stop taking YOUR money.

Keep us posted!

keep a surveillance camera on the money before you go to sleep at night. Be interesting to see what happens.

I felt like I was being more negative and angry and even thought god was punishing me for some reason cause everybody thought I was crazy when I spoke about it. I started going to church even had people came from the church to help out but it didn't work after time past I learn to live with it and learn not to let it get to me even though until today I still lose money. I need up moving from were I stayed for many years to a new place thinking it would end but I was wrong I still lose money. I have been alone in my house at times were I'm about to go to sleep and I see my 100 buck on my computer table or in my wallet or even in my pockets of my shorts and I'm in my room I no I should sleep with the 100 in my hand but I don't, having faith that when I wake up in the morning my moneys ganna be there and when I wake up my moneys gone.

Someone is obviously stealing her money.

She locked the cabinet? So what? I had to break into my own house once because I locked myself out. I used a credit card to get in.

There's plenty of ways to break into places or objects.

Tell your Mother it's about time she invested in a bank account.

Currently my mother is experiencing something very similar. The thing is, it has never ever happened before. For the past couple of months $100 dollar bills have been disappearing. It is only those bills that disappear. She keeps her money hidden in a secret purse as savings and when she checked it, it decreased despite the fact that it was the savings purse by $400! At first we thought it was my brother but not even he knows where it is. [And it would seem kind of stupid to steal a $100 bill instead of the numerous $20]. We are not sure what to do, as it only occurs with her. It is very strange.

Hello pscnldy, I actually heard of these things happening before. Can your mom keep her money in the bank instead (I know, we can't even trust the banks nowadays) and just use her ATM card when needed? If she is going to keep only a few dollars on her, can she keep it in her bra like the women use to do in the olden days? I don't mean to come across the wrong way, but something or someone would have to physically go in there to take the money and well with the banks its always traceable. These are just suggestions. I wish you all the best... 😊

pscnldy, I can honestly say I have not heard of this before. I have heard of things missing, demanding or asking for it back and then it being returned. Has you Mother tried this? I did not read all of the comments, so I do not know if that has been addressed. I would not know what else to do, honestly, besides the asking for it back. Thank you for the story.

Dear pscnldy,

It seems this money problem may be from outside sources as a negative ghost or perhaps a living person may be taking it. It may also well be that your mother's personal belief system about money may be negative which may be opening a negative energy level where the negative entity is attracted to your mother because of it.

I have experienced objects disappearing, but they will show up in a short period of time, if I demand them to be returned by an unknown entity. Many times ghosts and spirits will do this, but return the objects in question. Lower level entities will not return them because they are as I described them a lower level entity. Loving beings generally return the item or will not even entertain the thought of performing such pranks.

I would suggest your mother look within herself and find out what her fears are about in regards to money. I would also suggest performing rituals and such as related to and accepted by your mother in India and by her belief system. Perform these things until the money problem is resolved. --Abby

an idea for the reason your mother is the one losing the money... Is she your sole caregiver in the house? If you don't have a father present, and your mother is the head of household, then that could be the reason why. I doubt that temple spirits would rob children (I assume you're young but not very young) or the elderly, especially since the elderly are considered wise. So perhaps your mother is of fit age and state and is the head of household, and the spirits chose her to be the one to give the offerings. Just a thought. Blessed be. 😳

hi I have never ever used a Ouija Boards and that. I will never in my life I didn't mean contacting them through one of them just something totally opposite where no one will get hurt like a saying. I never brought the things up on my comment and I don't contact them they come to me.

Katie, I would not suggest trying to contact ghosts or demons if you didn't have "professionals" with you. Contacting the dead through Sceances or Ouija Boards are potentially dangerous. Even though my friend Sam got out of it alright doesn't mean everyone will. I did something I'd rather not mention and I now see things sense things sometimes. I used to be fine, but now I am scared to even sleep...

I had a dream about a wallet being missing last night even before the dream something popped inside my head of a wallet and credit cards don't ask why then today my boyfriend lost his wallet how strange is that. It freaky and we think that is weird that I knew about something like it but we never thought it would happen to us we thought it was on about someone else happening to someone else.

I have had similar experiences I was looking for my GCSE Results which were on paper I knew I had put them in this pile of papers I looked through it ten times no sign of it. My mum looked through t 5 times it wasn't there and even my sister looked through it twice and she couldn't see it. We had to go so I wasn't late for college my mum said in the car she will look for it when she get back. I suddenly got a phone call of my mum she was telling me she had found the paper which had my GCSE Results on guess where it was in that pile of paper it still a mystery I guess.

Kim, There are no other occurances in the home.
Rosemary thanks for your help... I will try that the next time.
SchizoSephy, in a way I'm happy I'm not the only one experiencing this. 😁 But I serioulsy do wish it would stop.

Almost the exact same thing happened to my friend Sam. His house is on an Native American burial ground. Or so I hear. Well his older brother left the house and it seemed to upset the spirits residing there. He would set thing down and they'd disappear. A few weeks later he somehow contacted the spirits and and they gave him the stuff back. (he found them in a place he had actually looked before.) during the disappearances I came to his house. And the stairwell behind me shook violently. For some reason I didn't fear any harm, it's strange because almost everything super natural horrifies me.

That is a very interesting theory. I don't think I have ever heard of a problem like this one.

Are there any other occurances in the home?

God Bless!

Is it possible in another lifetime that your mother who is someone else in this Lifetime was one of the people from the past lifetime who was responsible for losing the treasure?
Now taking this further as into delving into past Lifetimes, suppose your mother is a bit psychic and she is getting flashbacks into a past Lifetime as someone who was in charge of the treasures which were lost?
And now suppose your mother getting flashbacks to another lifetime, in this lifetime goes into a sort of trace where her actions might be blocked out and if this is true its possible that she could actually become the personality from the past and in a trance state actually be removing this money herself and hiding it.
I know this sounds strange to someone who is not a channel for Spirit but I know at times this can happen to us.
Now if you beieve this what you and your mother can do is she agrees to have you watch her and see if its possible that she could be reverting to another lifetime.
You could also offer this suggestion to the last Psychic you talked to and mention this theory and see what she thinks about it, and this could very easily help you solve this problem.
As we know people do have past life regressions and when this happens the Hyptonist or whomever is conducting experiment will put the person under hypnosis and delve into past lives and get many answers as to why people do things or why things happen to them.
I do not suggest if this is happen that you mother knows this is happening but I do believe it might be the answer.
