I've always been able to sense the other side so to speak but what's going on now in my new house is just plain weird. I'm a big believer in reincarnation/past life - so I'm very open to the spiritual where my wife's view is more inside the box and doesn't believe very openly in ghosts. We've been in the house since late October '07. I of course immediately noticed cold spots, predominately in our bedroom accompanied by a smell of cigarette smoke (neither of us smoke).
The other night my 20mo son woke up crying around 3am. Being that my wife tends to the new born, I get up with the older one at night. Upon entering his room and lifting him out of his crib I noticed a dark figure about my wife's stature standing in the corner by the rocking chair. I thought my wife had followed me in because it was hard getting up to get my son so I was annoyed that she followed me in. I went and slept with my son on the couch. The next day I asked her why she followed me in. She proceeded to tell me that she hadn't. Granted I was half asleep but looking back, I should have known it wasn't her.
I was home with my son one night, he in bed me in the living room. I had the baby monitor in his room and the receiver with me. I heard my 20mo sirring and then a woman going, "Shh shh shh" "Who loves you?" "I do". I have never been so freaked out - I was wide awake. I went to his room to find him safe and sound, sleeping contently.
Most recently I had fallen asleep on the couch when I was awakened by what sounded to me like a rock hitting my living room window and a voice, I don't know how to explain this... It wasn't out loud but it was in my head, like a thought but not that of my own. The voice said, "that woke 'em up!"
I work 2nd shift so two nights ago around 11:30 I had come home and was watching tv with my wife in the living room. We both heard a loud BANG come from my 20mo room. We both looked at each other and listened to see if he had woken but heard nothing so we played it off and continued watching tv. Well... 5 minutes later we hear this crazy carnival music coming from his room, I of course jump and creep down the hall to his room, peer in to see a jazz toy he has which stands on four legs lit up playing the music we have never heard it play before. Just as I peered in, it stopped. My wife was behind me in the doorway at this point so I walked in, got on my hands and knees to look at his toy to see if there was nay reason as to why it had gone off or to see if what we thought fell could have caused it. Nothing had fallen and just as I got on my hands and knees to look at the toy, it went off again in my face. I checked the toy out, nothing visibly wrong. We had actually just replaced the batteries a couple weeks prior. We also have a cd player which plays classical music for him in his room which after we left the room, decided to up its volume so much as to overcome the sound of the tv we were watching in the living room.
Two nights after that incident I came home and jokingly asked my wife if the ghosts were any bother to her while I was at work to which she responded with a NO. After ditting down I noticed a sound coming from the back of the house. I asked my wife if she had the humidifier in one of the kids room or what was left running. She said she didn't have anything running. I walked down the hall to investigate, opened the bathroom door down the hall and right before my eyes, the water was turned on full blast. I of course was a little ticked off because of the A.) the water bill! B.) we're in a drought and what a waste! To this, she got a little weirded out. She told me that she had been back there after the kids were put to bed no more than a couple hours prior and it was not on, nor did she even touch the sink.
So that is my story. I have spoken with (white buffalo) via e-mail about the situation and she thinks there are 3 beings in my home. Any other feed back?
