A Pull On My Arm And The Open Cupboards


I'm not quite sure if our house is haunted or not, I will tell you about some of the things that have happened so far.

I have only been living back at home with my parents for a short time so I don't have much to tell you but here goes.

About a month ago me and my mum was walking down the stairs chatting about random things when all of a sudden I felt something pull my arm back, like you would do to prevent someone from falling down the stairs. I stood there for a moment thinking what the hell and I told my mum and then just carried on down the stairs. We had gone into the front room when I realised I had left something upstairs, running back up retrieving the item. I again came back down and at the same spot as before my arm flicked back. This time I got a little freaked out but still thought if whatever it was was going to hurt me they would be pushing me rather then pulling me.

The next experience happened to my boyfriend. He was staying over for the weekend it was pretty late at night about 1.00am when he decided to go get himself a drink he had been the last one to come up to bed at around 10pm that night. When he came back up he seemed a little confused, he said that when he went into the kitchen he noticed that some of our cupboard doors where open, I said was he sure it wasn't our little black cat Brookie, who had the tendency to open the cupboards to hide in them. He said no that he had checked in on the cat room which is joined to the kitchen (which had also been shut before he came up to bed) and found her sleeping on a shelf.

There are a couple of other things that have happened which I will write about at a later date.

Thanks for reading

I have personaly never seen things open spontaniously, but I also have had taps and pulls on my body, along with apperences by an entity.

Also, I highly doubt a cat opened them all, if any.

perhaps your house is haunted I guess. Plz remember to do some blessing at your house if you feels threatened. Asked a physic (if you believe them) to talk with the entity, perhaps 'it' still has some resentment here on earth. I'm sorry if there's some mistake in my vocabulary okay? 😊

Definitely not your imagination, and definitely your house is haunted. If you don't like it, you can try getting it blessed or do a spirit riddance. If you feel you are in danger this is a must.

Yes, please keep us informed, It is very interesting.
And the jerk could be a nerve just contracting your muscle but sometimes I have had the same thing, and sometimes I can feel that it was not a nerve.

The jerk/pulling on your arm could have been just a nerve/twitch. I get them in my hands now and then.

The cupboards really could have been a cat. They're quiet and quick. I've seen mine push doors open/squeeze through tight corners...etc. Or maybe someone else did go downstairs. I move about my apartment all the time and my fiance has no idea I've even gotten up.

Its really hard to say what may be happening in your house (at least for me). Guess you'll have to share more with us
