I have submitted a few stories regarding my new office and the occurrences that plagued me since moving in. To say this move has been interesting would be an understatement. Taps on my shoulder, voices, and conversations, being asked by disembodied voices to come home with me, doors opening and slamming, whew. This has certainly kept me on my toes.
About a week ago I had a Minister come to my office after hours and bless my office hoping to rid myself of the entities that were intent on distracting me. This went rather well. No occurrences while he was present and after he left a feeling of peace for me that I had not experienced here since moving in to my new office. Unfortunately, the facilities manager continues to look for employment elsewhere because of all of the occurrences he has had, he refuses to even share most of them with me saying he is still looking for logical reasons.
Well, as I stated, my office itself has calmed down and I have had no experiences in at least the last 10 days. The rest of the building(s) appear to still have something or someone plaguing them. Doors will still open and close and others have reported hearing voices. The security officer finds it fascinating. He likes to watch the doors on the security cameras. He has always checked each and every open and close, assuring that the building is not being broken into. He was not so happy the other day though after becoming locked in the garage for about 3 minutes.
It was very close to the end of the work day and he was making his rounds. He waved to me as he walked by my office. He carries a walkie talkie as well as a cell phone. He had been gone for about a half hour when the staff began noticing he had not returned from his rounds. We tried calling him on his walkie talkie, there was no response, just crackling noises. We tried his cell phone, it went right to voice mail. One of the maintenance workers and I decided to walk his rounds and locate him.
As we neared the garage at the end of what would have been his rounds, we heard knocking from the inside of the garage on the door. I used my master key and unlocked the garage door. The security officer was in there, knocking to get out. We asked him what had happened and why he was not responding on the walkie talkies and not answering his cell phone. He stated his cell phone had not rung, he removed it from his pocket and it was fully operational with a full signal. I told him to check his voice mails; sure enough there were a couple of messages from staff asking him where his was and if he was okay. He stated he could hear our voices coming through the speaker on his walkie talkie, and was responding. I advised him all we heard was static on the other end.
Apparently as he walked by the garage on his rounds, he could hear movement and voices from inside the garage. There are no windows and only 2 sided dead bolts on both the over head and side doors. Thinking perhaps it was someone from maintenance; he unlocked the walk through door just to check on things. As he opened the door he could still hear voices and movement but it was dark in there and hard to see. He reached over and flipped on the light. As he turned on the light the voices and movement stopped and the door slammed behind him. He did a quick look around the garage (not hard to do as the building is mostly empty space when none of the vehicles are in there). He saw no one or nothing out of order. He turned back to the door, using his master key, tried to unlock the door. He indicated the key would move and sound as if the door was unlocking, but it would not open. He repeated this process a couple of times and tried also to unlock the over head door, with the same results. He then tried reaching someone in the office by the same means we were trying to reach him, the cell phone and the walkie talkie. He indicated this went on for a bout 3 minutes until we arrived.
As we exited the garage we could hear this laughter, like at a movie or play, many voices laughing together. Then nothing. We headed back across the small lot to the office. He confided in me that this time made him uncomfortable.
I do think that the activity has been removed from my actual office, but not the grounds or building(s). As long as this remains harmless, what else can be done? The officers of the business refuse to acknowledge the issue. I can concentrate now and do not feel the fear and anxiety I did when "it" was in my office, so...
