New House Haunting


Everything began happening when we moved into the new section of a small town not far from our old farm. I was only about 9 at the time when we first moved so I hadn't heard the stories about the bones dug up to make room for the new development of houses.

Anyways, I was a 9 year old girl excited to be moving into a nice big new house. I had everything unpacked and decided to go play in our basement. I always played with this porcelain doll my grandma gave me. So I was playing house downstairs and I left my doll on the couch and went to the bathroom, when I came out of the bathroom my doll was gone. Confused, I looked around the room and there was my doll sitting on the other side of the room, that I hadn't went anywhere near. I grabbed her and went back upstairs and refused to play down there anymore.

Then, when I was about 14, my parents decided to move me downstairs. So I packed up my stuff and moved into the basement. I set my favorite snow globe on top of my dresser. While I was asleep that night I woke up to hear my snow globe playing music, which I hadn't heard it do in years because I hadn't turned the knob since I was like 7. Terrified, I grabbed the snow globe and put it in my dresser drawer. A few hours later I awake to the sound of glass smashing and my snow globe was shattered on the floor.

I was so terrified of being in the basement alone that my parents got me a dog to sleep with. The first night I had him was the last time he was downstairs. I was woken up in the middle of the night to him barking at what appeared to be nothing. Suddenly he cried out and whimpered at the end of my bed, and when I looked at him he had a small mark on the end of his nose. He wouldn't come back downstairs again after that night unless we forced him and even then he'd run straight back upstairs.

Another time when I was 16 I was home alone for the night laying in bed. Suddenly I heard a door close upstairs and footsteps were in the room above me. I called my mom to ask if they were home and she said "No, we won't be home until tomorrow afternoon." Then the footsteps continued to walk across the house and then I heard them going down the stairs, and I heard the furnace room door open and slam shut. I was horrified and I climbed out my window and ran into the street and waited for my boyfriend to show up. I demanded he look in the furnace room and the rest of the house but we couldn't find anyone or anything.

When I told people about these weird things happening I was told about the bones that were dug up in our area but were tossed aside because the builders thought it was just a family grave site.

Weird things have continued to happen in the house such as sounds, voices, shadows and foot steps. I still refuse to be alone in the basement in the dark.

The bones are a peculiar detail, peculiarly handled, I agree. Human bones found on any construction site would be a matter for either the police or for anthropologists! This would be true even in some very backwoods areas in which I've lived, much less new construction on the edge of a town.

Ummmm, OOOOKKKK...

I have no doubt the O/P and the poor puppy experienced some strange things but there is one piece of information presented I wish to ask about... Or at least 'point out'.

The O/P stated...

"When I told people about these weird things happening I was told about the bones that were dug up in our area but were tossed aside because the builders thought it was just a family grave site."

Now it may have to do with the YEAR the bones were found but its kind of standard pratice to involve the police when human remains are found during construction... Its then determeined if its an Historical or family grave site... Or if something 'worse' has been located by the construction... Human Bones are not just 'tossed aside' becasue a Family Grave site was just dug up. Jeesh, sound like a 'bad' movie plot.

Just saying...

Hi Kierrabrook, I am as surprised as owl_cat, who exclaimed as to how you stayed in the basement for so long even after all such activities. Well, except what happened to your dog's nose, I don't think that there was anything in the narrative to say that it was harmful.

But, I want to ask you one thing. What was your gut feeling initially? Was it that you were feeling scared or did you feel that it was harmful. It is your first gut feeling that would be 99% correct.

If you are still living in the same place, why don't you just do a cleansing. Rook, one of the experienced posters in this site, designed a method, which is quite useful. I am just reproducing the method. It will work and you have to continue to do it for a few days and when it works, please thank Rook.

By the way, please do make some sincere investigation in the neighbourhood. Please do ask them if they have sighted or felt any spirits and try to maintain a journal. Kindly share with us the developments and information after you have inquired or investigated the matter in the neighbourhood.

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

Regards and respects to you.

Hi there Kierra,

Sorry to hear you've been doing it tough, this sounds very scary. Please do look into cleansing/shielding and/or blessing, whichever you're comfortable with.
Can I ask, why did your parents move you down to the basement? That seems like a ridiculous thing to do to you. 😕

I'm surprised that you've been able to live in that house for such a long time with all the activity! Based on the dog's experience, I would say that there is more than just rustled up spirits. If the activity continues, gets worse, or becomes dangerous, I would suggest that you sage the house or find a medium or paranormal expert to cleanse the house and see if the spirits can be put to rest. Moving out does not always have to be a solution.
