My Baby Son And The Open Closet Doors


May 9, 2023, at 12:40 a.m.

In the dead of night, I retreated into my quarters after securing the doors. As I was updating one of my ongoing stories on my Kindle, I left my wife to tend to our baby boy, who is not even three months old; he will be three months old on May 22, 2023. My wife put my son down and went to the restroom around 12:43 a.m., so the baby was alone in his crib for 7 minutes or so. I saw her when she went to the restroom, so I knew Jasper was alone. At 12:50 am, I had a distinct feeling of unease jolting through me, causing me to return to the room.

To my dismay, the closet doors were wide open, which was concerning since my wife had seen me with her own eyes vividly close them, and I also remember closing them. I do this because of our baby's fascination with them; he stares way too much towards the closet. He also tends to always be staring all around the roof from side to side, which is not normal. Recently he started pointing, and it seems to me like he is pointing. He is not even 3 months old, but he is a very active and aware boy.

I was so puzzled by the closet door mystery that I immediately questioned my teenagers' movements, both of whom denied ever entering my room. And my daughter was passed out in her quarters. This left me perplexed - who opened the closet doors?

Furthermore, my baby's antics were mind-boggling, with him giggling and staring unblinkingly at the ceiling and the darkest corners of the room. Something in my home wasn't right. My son's preoccupation with the closet was especially apparent, considering babies aren't typically fascinated by those spaces. Every time I looked up from my writing, my son was staring at the top of the closet, making me more and more anxious by the minute. I'm worried about my son's welfare, but I can't decide if this was an innocent coincidence or otherwise. In an attempt to rule out the paranormal, I set up two cameras in the room to monitor my son's activities. As parents, we must never leave anything to chance where our children's safety is concerned.

Even though we've been monitoring the situation, our surveillance system has not captured any evidence of the strange phenomena. This led us to explore alternative solutions, such as using a ghost tube app.

Continuing on with the updates regarding the strange and unexplainable events unfolding in our home, I feel it is necessary to add a bit more context that might shed some light on the situation. As a long-time believer in spiritual entities, I have witnessed many unusual occurrences over the years and felt that it was only fitting to explore and understand these events better by using a ghost tube app. In the initial stages of using this app, we didn't see or capture anything out of the ordinary, but that quickly changed with recent sessions. Strangely, whenever I asked questions through the app, the stick figures would move to signify their response, and more often than not, they would say something directed at me specifically. The words "Kop, Bill, fear me" that the app delivered were wholly jarring, and it still amazes me that these entities could potentially harm my family and me. It's clear that there's more to this situation than meets the eye, and I can't help but feel that we're walking a fine line between safety and endangerment.

While I was holding Jasper during the communication, the app mentioned the words "kiss, care, above, bike, mesas, bastante, esperar, genero, and viejo." Although I couldn't decipher their significance, it was clear that they were unrelated and out of context. At the same time, Jasper began coughing and felt anxious, leading me to take him outside for his well-being. Throughout my session, I've also received other messages with different words like "levitation, follow, help, lemon, Michael, if, night, quitter, insomnia," among others. However, I'm still struggling to understand their meaning and importance in this situation.

During the same sessions, I heard the app say, "Alexander above," in a tone that insinuated a conjunction. While I was aware that it didn't make sense on the surface, I felt in my gut that it had some significance. Similarly, the phrase "fear me" repeatedly delivered by the app was a clear indication that the spirits or entities in question had malevolent intentions. Despite the fact that my name Alexander and my son's name Jasper were both uttered in my last session, the app directed the words "You stopped after I completed an "OUR FATHER PRAYER"" in my room. I have come to notice that the stick figures direct their attention towards me and Jasper; it's a very eerie and unsettling feeling to be aware of this. One thing is clear: They're attempting to cause harm. I hope that I am wrong and that all they want to do is communicate something. Jasper's behavior became erratic and wearisome after they said his name out loud, and he got a cough right after. So I told my son, "Let's go outside," and the spirit box app responded with "do not." It was clearly telling me not to take my son out of the room. But still worried and unsure of the situation and our safety, I decided to keep my son Jasper very close to me; if I don't have him, my wife does, or one of our children. Can't leave him alone. These messages were eerie and unsettling, making it clear that we must be cautious and pay attention to any clues concerning our safety.

In conclusion, we remain committed to the safety of our family and will continue to monitor the situation closely. We've explored whatever methods we feel are safe and available to us. I believe that there's more to uncover about what's happening in our home, and if needed, we'll seek professional help and guidance to resolve this long-standing issue. Thanks for your understanding and support. All of these events have taken a great emotional toll on me and Jasper, and it's challenging to cope with this situation while ensuring his safety. I'll continue to monitor the situation, and if needed, I'll seek the required help. Until then, I promise to keep you updated on any new developments. Thank you for reading. Sincerely,  Alexander Sanchez, Jasper's father

If it is still on.
Then I would suggest placing an Idol or photo of Lord hanuman and Play "Hanuman Chalisa for few day's".
Avoid non veg food.
I can assure you it will help.

I agree with a lot of what's said here by our knowledgeable members. Don't involve kids in your quest to find out what's going on. Keep the kids away from the paranormal activities.

Hesitating to jump in here because I don't know that much other than my own instincts, but I am a mom of four and can relate there.

Someone -- a Biblical scholar -- once told me that you should not seek out communication with the other world, which I know many people here might not agree with. But I believe you ESPECIALLY should not seek to communicate when you have children in the home. It's one thing to suspect activity, but then to strive to communicate to me seems like it would open more doors in an area we really know nothing about, so why chance it? When I have had activity in my home or have seen things elsewhere that I know aren't within our norms, I document but do not seek. I'll leave the seeking for those who are braver, who don't have kids, who are up for the adventure or... The consequences. Having a three month old and opening lines of communication with something or someone unknown just seems scary to this mom. Respectfully. I believe we're surrounded by spiritual energies. Whenever I see in a photo some type of anamoly, there are always OTHER partially formed anamolies clinging on if you will. I see this a lot, not only on websites or whatever, but in my own photos. So I agree with lady glow, who is always a voice of wisdom. Good luck to you and congrats on the baby!

I'm wondering if perhaps much of what you hear/see comes through shared apartment walls. For instance the kitchen cabinet slamming, could it be the cabinet next door?
The closet door opening, vibrations from another apartment or even heavy trucks passing?
I know my own does this. NOT all the time. This is the first time in 20 years I've been here we have angsty teen downstairs. Every time he slams his bedroom door, my closet pops open. It was a bit unnerving at first, because his slam sounds like it's behind my closet door, and then my door flies open like someone shoved it hard, due to the vibrations traveling up the walls and floor.
Just a thought there. New places always take a bit of adjustment.

[At] lady-Glow Here is my reply to your questions:

Question 1: How long have you been living in this house? 

Answer 1: We moved to La Vista Apartments on January 3, 2023, so we have only been here a few months.

Question 2: Is there a history of previous paranormal events during the time you have been there, or has the birth of your baby triggered the activity?

Answer 2: In the months my family has been living here, there has always seemed to be activity in the kitchen. We can always hear some kind of noise. For example, my two boys and my daughter, along with my sister, were sitting on the couch at a distance of 20 feet from the kitchen, and they told me they all heard a cabinet door slam shut. When they told me, I went and opened all cabinets and checked if any would slam shut maybe because of a slight angle, but none of the 9 cabinet doors in the kitchen have any slant, and none, even if slightly pushed, get enough force to slam and sound loud enough to match what they had all heard in the kitchen. Another odd moment that we had was a few days ago, while my son was asleep. We decided to go to the kitchen real quick to make a sandwich, and my wife was making us coffee. At the same time, we used our phone's Xfinity app to see our camera in the room to see Jasper while he slept. When we left the room, we left the door slightly open. In the middle of lunch preparation, we heard our room door completely close, like if someone pushed it shut. I said right away to my wife, "Hey, babe, that sounded like someone pushed the door close. We left it open." She said yes. We heard the door even louder because we had the phone app monitor on. So I went to the room immediately to check it out and check on my son; he was still asleep peacefully. I tried recreating the door being shut if it was the wind or I pushed the door slightly, and it wouldn't close because it needed enough pressure to close, so in conclusion, someone actually has to apply force to shut the door; it was not due to open windows. That has only happened once, and that was maybe a week ago, around 5/14/2023. Prior to this and after the fact, we have sometimes heard noises here and there, always in the kitchen.

Question 3: Do you come from a family of "sensitives"?

ANSWER: I myself am very sensitive; I can feel my surroundings' energies. I simply have to put my attention on sense and go into what seems like spider-sense mode. 
As an example, of my awareness, I was standing in the doorway of my shed using my phone when I had this thought come to my head: "If I look up, I will probably see a spider coming down." I looked up, and yes, there was a spider coming down right above me, like a brown recluse or a wolf spider. I am not sure, but it was coming straight down like I had imagined it prior to it happening.
Another example, was one day, while I was meditating in my back yard, when a friend came over and said, "Let me show you a song I made when I was 17 with this home-girl of mine." I said, "Okay, show me." As soon as he played the song, I had this strong urge to cry, as if the frequencies in the music made me do it. I wept like, "Hu,Hu,Hu," and tears came out of my eyes. I could not control this happening; it was the first time ever. It was crazy. So I am very sensitive, aware of my surroundings, and intuitive.

Thank you, [at] Valkricy. I'd upvote you but apparently you make too much sense.

To help with the age categories, I have copied Martin's explanation.

"The age categories are pretty broad, I didn't want to be overly specific for privacy reasons:

20 or less = teenager
20 - 40 = young adult
40 - 60 = middle age adult
60 or more = senior adult"

TranscendingTales, you can update your information by going to the top right-hand corner, where you see your user name, and click 'account'. There's not much you can do about how old Martin lists you as though. Lol You have your birthdate listed on your profile, so... People can do the math if so inclined.

Lady Glow, thank you for the cleaning advice. I'll continue reading the material and do the cleanse tomorrow. Thank you, everybody, for your messages as well. I'll keep you posted if something out of the ordinary occurs again. I terminated communication as suggested.

Hi, I don't understand the age question. I just created that user name and hope it isn't already in use by another member. My name is Alexander Sanchez. I am 34 years old; my baby Jasper is 3 months old tomorrow, the 22nd; my wife is 30, my adolescent boys are 14 and 16, and my daughter is 12 years old. My wife and I had children when we were young. Hopefully, this answers some of the questions. Where do I update my information?

Hi RCRuskin.

Not meaning to answer for the mods, but the topic of the age groups has been brought before and "young adult" goes from 20 to 40 years of age, thus it's possible for someone under/close to the age of 40 to have teenaged children... Specially if they had kids at a young age.

I agree with you, there are some holes in this story, hopefully the OP participates in the discussion as he said he'd do.

Hi, Transcending Tales. Very interesting experience you shared here.

But I really have questions for the organizers and mods of this site regarding these events. Mr. TT is listed as a "young adult" which usually means someone from about 18, give or take a bit, to maybe 25 at the upper limit. Yet Mr. TT has at least one teenage child. Now technically, teenage starts at 13 though in practice some folks are not called teens until they are at least 14. But in either case, and using the most extreme upper limit for young adult, this means that the first child born would have happened when the poster was 12.

There is a lot here that does not really add up.

If you feel something is wrong, I think you should trust your instinct, we all have a sixth sense and I believe that it gets stronger when our children are involved in any possible form of harm, there may be good and bad entities but the only way you will know is if you speak to someone who has experience with the supernatural.

But from what I've read about your story, there's too many creepy incidents happening around you and your son, has anyone else experienced this? Your wife and teenage child?

Hi Alexander, and welcome to YGS.

First of all, congratulations on the birth of your son.

I find your story very intriguing and a little disturbing, and would like to ask few questions:

- How long have you been living in this house?
- Is there a history of previous paranormal events during the time you have been there, or the birth of your baby has triggered the activity?
- Do you come from a family of "sensitives"?

Although I have never tried the application you're using, in my opinion, it's not a good idea to utilize it without taking some sort of protection in case you're dealing with something negative.
I don't know if you have taken any safety measures, but there's no mention of it in your narrative.

To be honest, I have no idea about the nature of the activity playing at your place, nor of the accuracy of this technology but, perhaps it would be better to stop any further contact with whatever is there, and to set some boundaries as for what it is allowed to do...ASAP.

I would suggest to perform a cleansing /blessing of your place according to your personal beliefs, or try the cleansing method explained in the following link, which is reported to send away any negative presence but not affecting positive ones (you'll have to do some reading to find the cleansing method):


I see some Spanish words amongst the answers you got, and your last name is Spanish too, which makes me think that, perhaps, an ancestor may be visiting your baby, or there might be more than one presence around him. It's a long shot, but - who knows?

Take care and keep us posted.

Thanks for sharing.
