To tell you all what's going on lately I need to give a little history first. Four years ago I lived in Hamtramck. I became very close with my neighbours in the next house over. It was Friendship at first sight. They wanted to start a family so they bought a house in Ferndale. A two-flat brick 1930's Roebuck home. My partner and I live in the Upper Flat and they and their three year old son (Our godson) live in the bottom flat. Everything has been fine and dandy until about maybe nine months ago. They, up until recently, did not believe in the supernatural.
The first thing to happen was when Sarah was fixing dinner. She felt something fall on the top of her head, slide off, and then fall to the floor. It was a magnet from the fridge. The only person home with her at the time was her son who was wrapped up in a blanket watching TV, and deeply engrossed in it. The fridge is on the other side of the kitchen so it would literally have had to fly across kitchen to get to her.
The second thing to happen was while in the basement which we all share as a winter smoking room (I know bad habit!). Anyway she and her husband's sister were smoking and heard footsteps above them walking across the living room floor.
Then there are the voices that mimic.
Many times, either Nick or Sarah will be home alone and they'll hear the other one's voice call out to them. Nick was in bed waking up to Sarah calling his name from the other room, telling him it's time to wake up. He got up and went into the kitchen only to find out he was alone. Later she said she didn't say anything to him before she left for work assuming he had to go in later.
Sarah has been in the kitchen and will hear Nick talking to her only to find that he had not actually come home yet and that she is alone.
Last week Sarah was giving Enzo a bath and heard me and Nick having a conversation in the kitchen. She dried off Enzo and got him all excited to see us, only to find out no one was there-we both were still at work.
A couple of weeks ago Nick, Enzo and I went out to get some lunch. Before we left Nick picked up a hat that was on the floor in the dinning room and placed it on the coat rack in the living room.
When we came back from lunch it was back on the floor of the dinning room where it had been before he picked it up originally. This was the first, and honestly the last thing I personally had been around for.
I don't know why this is happening to them, but Brad and I have not had one odd thing happen in our place and we all live in the same house, same floor layout and everything. I go into their place all the time to let their dogs out or to grab a cup of cat food and such. I have never had anything happen, or anything feeling uncomfortable atmospherically.
I have a few theories and here they are:
#1: Electrical fields that are creating a replay of past events (explains the voices that sound like us and the things we say).
#2: They have a child that has tons of energy. I have heard that sometimes activity can center around children. I'm not sure why though?
#3: They have had a recent influx of antique furniture that has come into their home (although the magnet thing happened before this.) I have heard you can bring home spirits that can be attached to items. I have suggested blessing the pieces just to be on the safe side. I don't think they have yet though
#4: Three neihborhood homes around us one being next door and two across the street have had paranormal activity according to the people living in them. I have personally witnessed a ghost at the home next to us. Maybe we just live near a very "charged" area?
Any insight or thoughts would be appreciated.
