Am I Being Targeted?


Over the last few months, strange things have been happening here. The first sign of something out of the ordinary was when I woke up one morning to find my bedroom door locked from the outside, with the inside being unlocked. When I go to bed, it's the other way around, as logically, I can't lock the door on the outside, while I'm standing inside.

I got home from work one night, the next week, to discover this time that the door was locked inside, and unlocked outside, completely opposite of how I'd left it. And now this. As I type this, my dog is going berserk, barking, scratching and sniffing at my bedroom door, where 2 hours ago, an unseen something slammed the door hard against my hand as I reached in to turn the light off.

I've only been living in this house for a little under 2 years, and my current room for just over 2 months. My sister lived in there the whole time before I moved my stuff in, and she says she never experienced anything unusual.

Am I being targeted?

duh - whatever or whoever it is doesn't want you in that room. Did someone die in there? Maybe you should try telling it out loud to stop with the tricks or it will have to leave. That usually works. Many ghosts act like mischevious children. But you never know, maybe it's a warning to stay out of the room for some reason. Maybe the ghost knows something about the room that you don't know yet.

Have you considered that spirits generally only use their energy on people that can see or hear them? According to Dr Hans Holzer a person can only experiance a ghost if they are at least a bit psychic themselves. Your sister may not have any psychic abilities and thus the spirit was unable to pick up on her energy to come through. Ask your self a couple of easy questions... Do you have prophetic dreams? Premonatory feelings? Have you had empathic instances? If you say yes to any of these then you are not being targeted, you are being used, or at least your energy is being used. The spirit in your home is not strong enough to manifest without drawing from your energy. There are meditation and focus excercises you can use to limit the amount of energy that can be taken from you... Check into it

well, from the looks of this, you DON'T HAVE A BAD DOOR. To tell you the truth, I think that you might be getting targeted. Well, don't be scared because they know that you are scared, because it happened to me once.

Jarrod, you brought something with you. Check your things, gifts, and item.
If she never experienced anything, why are you being targeted?
