I Have a Ghost in my House


My husband and I have been in our house for 8 months now, and we have a ghost; or at least we are convinced we do. I am a skeptical person and do not believe in these sort of things, but now I am starting to. It seems to be happening to my husband more than me.

There have been a few times where I've come home from shopping and when I come inside he had thought that I was already home because he said he heard the door shut earlier, but it's never me. A few weekends ago I was out with my girlfriends and as he was asleep he heard me come in and go into the front bathroom and vomit. He got up to bring me a glass of water in the bathroom.... but I wasn't home. I too come home and find that lights are on that I shut off, a chair will be pushed out or the toilet paper in the bathroom will be rolled down to the floor. Last night my husband woke up because he felt something kick him in his back from under the mattress. He thought perhaps our dog was under the bed, but he was asleep at the foot of our bed.

I never hear voices and I've never seen a ghost, but I am so afraid of my house now. No one ever died there, there was only a couple who lived there for 20 years and now us. What should I do?

We have expierenced similar things. What I did to get it out was, (Get one white candle and two red scented candles) They need to be burning for 3 days straight.) Then, get your Bible and read Psalms 91, for the next 3 days in the main area of your house. Also, walk around your house demanding the spirt to leave in Jesus Name. And letting it know that it is not welcome. You can get some olive oil and say a prayer while putting crosses on your windows, and that will close door ways for spirts. A friend of mine told me to do this, and it worked for us.

I would try to contact the couple that lived there and see if they've ever had any of the experiences that you and your husband are having and try to get to the bottom of it.
Let me know how it goes.

It may not have to do with the house, it may be the land or a possesion you have, maybe a piece of furniture -- have you purchased any used furniture items, this may have something to do with it.

God Bless! ❤

I have had several experiences in my home. One was my son was on his cell phone in the bedroom. Came to the kitchen to talk to me. The girl who was on the phone asked if he had left the room he said "yes". She said she heard a man and woman talking in the room. The man had a deep voice which in no way resembled my son. She couldn't make out what was being said though.

Just research, research, research. Your house may be on land where a tragic event occured. Hiring a paranormal team might set your mind at ease as well. Whatever you decide, DO NOT USE A OUIJA BOARD. They open up a gate to more than just earthbound spirits. Demons can come through as well and make things even worse.

Good luck!

what you should do is figure out if it is a good spirit or a bad one. Then figure out if it is and older spirit or a young one. If it is doing any harm to you, your husband, or anyone else then you should get a blessing done. If not try and see if you can live with your "friend".

If it's moving things, its a poltergeist.
But also, if no one died there it might be a spirit of the deceased that was close to you or your husband, and its just following you around.
try and talk to him/her, maybe they're trying to tell you something.

I to have experience a ghost. Staying over boyfriends house, One morning in bed some one was holding me and I heard a radio station changing music. It was still dark. When the arm moved away from around me. I turned around to find no one laying next to me. I got up to see if my boyfriend was still home, but his car was gone. I never told him about it. Few days later he said a few nights someone is pinning him down in the bed. I am afraid to stay another night over there

I would seriously suggest that you contact a paranormal investigation group from your area. Tell them your story, and in most cases, the team of investigators will bring in some equipment to check out your house FREE OF CHARGE. This will NOT eliminate your problem, but will make you feel better if they can confirm what you have experienced. This can help you not feel "crazy". Most paranormal investigation teams have encountered similar situations and can then direct you on how to proceed if they feel that you are in any danger.

Hi, I have or belive there are ghost in my house but they dont seem to harm me or any one else, unlike your case. Reasoning why I think there are some in my house is because of pictures! Anyways w/e you do dont question it like people are telling you to, its very bad!!! It will make it mad! What I have found from my readings is to sit down and ask it to leave...dont let it know your scared and DONT yell!!!Treat it how you what to be treated!!! If it doesn't work move out.

I think you should ask him or her why are you being so rude and why are you bugging me and my husband. I think the ghost or spirit is trying to get your attention and it is not being nice about it, it doesn't mean to be rude or anything like that. Just ask him or her what do you want and why are you bugging me and tell it stop being rude and put your foot down you never know what the ghost wants unless you ask it and tell it I live here and please be nice. Email me if you want and tell me what happens no I am not psychic but I had some ghost in my parents house and I said please be nice and I am the boss here ok? My email is greekangel644 [at]
good luck! remember you are the boss it is your house now ok? :-))

you should find out more information about the couple who lived there before you. Maybe they worked with a quiji board or performed some kind of rituals that could have brought spirits into your house.

OMG I think you should bless the house and ask the people if they know anything about this.
