This is the first time I've reached out and told this account to anyone outside of my family and GH team, but I do believe that spirits have inhabited my home.
My home in St. Francisville, Louisiana was completed in the year 1998. We had been told that a house had burned down in the same vicinity where our home was built, but also that there was an old Indian trail right beside it. I do not know if there was any truth to that, but town records did in fact confirm that there was a residence on the lot my house was built on. We never thought anything of it.
A few years after we moved into the finished home, some very strange things began to happen. Our possessions inside the house kept vanishing without a trace, we would hear thumps in the house, but we live in the country, so we dismissed the noises. We first came to the conclusion that we were not alone when my sister, my mother, and myself all witnessed a DVD case move from the middle of a coffee table to the edge of the table and slide off. At first, we didn't know what to think, then we decided to pretend that it didn't happen. Then we started seeing THEM.
At different times during the day and the night, all of us have seen white figures quickly moving from the mud room to the hallway, and from the hallway to my room and my parents' room. This would rarely happen, but none of us could explain it, and it was always out of the corners of our eyes that we would see them. When we would look, there was nothing there.
This past year, I received the shock of my life. I was getting ready for bed, when one of my books fell off of the shelf and onto the floor. I keep my books pushed all the way to the wall, so something had to have pulled it out so it could fall down. Next thing I knew, my bedroom door slowly opened by itself. Now, my bedroom door doesn't always latch, so I thought it had just slipped off the latch. Then I heard footsteps down the hallway. I thought it was my mother, so I turned on the hallway lights, and it was not my mother. What I saw was a partial manifestation of a spirit; an apparition. It was the partially completed chest and full face of a woman in what looked like her mid 30's. I screamed and fell backwards (being the first time I've actually seen it with my own eyes) and tried to run back to my room to grab my camera to document (amateur ghost hunter). When I got back to the hallway, the apparition was gone but my parents were awake, demanding why I was screaming. I told them what I had seen, and my father dismissed it as exhaustion (he's a big skeptic) but my mother assured me that if I didn't bother the spirit, I would be fine.
I'm no expert, but I do believe that something happened in the past on my property and now the spirits are making themselves known. Sometimes I feel as though my home has been invaded, but then I rember that I have been living with them for 16+ years. I've tried to do EVP sessions, but I've always come up with nothing. I guess I just have no choice but to live with them.
