Spirits In My House Getting Worse


I'm Madeleine; I am 14 years old now. We moved into our house when I was 3 in Reading (England).

A few years later when I was about 8, I started to get this feeling of being watched everywhere I would go in the house. When I was about 10 I woke up from a normal dream to find a Labrador Retriever on my brother's bed looking up at him (while he was sleeping) and a young woman looking at me. I screamed and closed my eyes and I started hearing voices in my ears I told the lady to go away and she did after a few minutes.

After telling my mother, she went to see a Medium who told her that an old couple lived in this house before us this must have been the woman I saw and that they do not mean any harm to us they just live in a different dimension who relive a certain event or memory.

My grandfather was diagnosed with cancer a few months back and ever since then a spirit in the house has become more active than ever! I keep seeing things out of the corner of my eyes and a few weeks back I asked if there was a ghost in my house because I heard a few knockings, I didn't get a reaction but I had this urge to turn around like I was being forced to. My sister's ring which she was given when she was younger was by the bedside was just flung at me.

I told my mother and siblings but they didn't believe me. But my mother suggested that I relax and try to ask it questions. So the next day I did and I got a picture of this man in my mind wearing a hat and suite. In the background it was our house but it was old fashioned I would say about 1970 and I drew him to my mother and all she could say was he looked like my grandmother's father. But I do know that he is not the only spirit in my house

I'm always drawn to the wall behind my dining room wall as the medium who my mum spoke to said it was the vortex. I believe a bad entity is here with me now like a presence. I have always seen the entity in the corners of my eyes as a black mist moving about very quickly.

I'm writing this because I really need help. When I'm sitting down, I can feel coldness as if someone is touching me and I'm quite scared now because I asked questions they feel that they can contact me, and I don't want them to. I'm the only one who can notice them and I feel isolated because I feel as if I'm going crazy, please help me

thank you
I have done what you said
And although I have ignored whoever it is
I have had a prayer book by me
But the neighbors the other day said that things were moving about in their house
So I think it's gone into theirs because it had no energy here
Thank you for all your help x

Hi Maddy, sorry it took me so long to get back here. Oh, and just so that you know, If I were to "have a go" at you... It would be completely obvious. 😉
Good. I am glad that the Medium is a family friend. That eliminates part of the issue of whether or not this person was grabbing at straws and "reading" your Mother through the facial expressions as she offered up different thoughts. It is a common occurrence around the whole "plastic psychic" ring. Some of them take great happiness at spreading terror in the hearts of a few people who are TRYING to believe. A total waste, that is.
Ah, I see what you mean about her telling you to talk to it. It was one of those instances in which a Mother will offhandedly make a comment thinking their child really would not go ahead and do that. BUT, it is probably one of the best tools she handed you. She gave you the choice to take the matter in your own hands.
We also have Most Haunted and Ghost Hunters here in the States. Ummm... Sometimes I LOVE watching them, sometimes they are just a mite "out there", you know? But, what you are saying is right. IF it is feeding off your fears, then if you ignore it (as much as possible) then you are depriving it of the energy it so needs to manifest.
It's there when you sleep. It's there when you sleep. Here is an idea. Do you know how to meditate? If you do, why do you not try that BEFORE laying down to sleep? Keep the prayer close by as a double whammy and (I know this sounds Peter Pan-ish) try to think ONLY happy thoughts right before bed.
I have the tendency to think through the days issues as I am preparing to sleep. That would include all good and bad things that have happened. Just try to recall all the GOOD things.
If you can not get IN the bedroom to say the prayer, get as close as you can. Even if that means you stand at the door with a sheet of paper in your hands. It will still get the message across.
I look forward to hearing how you are doing with this. Please let me know.
Thank you.

hello whitebaffolo

The medium, my mother trust her
She is a friend of the familys nowadays
My mum does trust her, but my mum said the vortex, the lady said an opening portal and a person being there

When I was a little girl
I was very clumbsy (walk into things)
So as soon as I told my mum
She must of thought walked into it!

I was in tears with my mum
And then she said, well if you want to, you should go talk to it

This is exactly what a friend of mine stated today in one of my lessons

She said, if you watch say in my country we have most haunted or ghost hunters
And they have something evil
You're going to get that into your mind
And imagine that, that fear is real
And it is evil, but it's not a nice feeling I get when I'm in my house

Especially my room,
I 100% think they only place it's staying is in my room, as soon as I walked in I got this impression of somethin being there with me
It terrified me
But it's living off my fear isn't it?
Now if I stop thinking bout it, its going to go right
But I can't, its there when I sleep
And I've got this prayer near me
And I want to say it in my bedroom where it is, but I feel I can't like something is stopping me

Thank you, although at first I thought you were having ago at me
I do not explain things enough, I was just very scared

What?! You are so not going crazy, my friend.
I do have a few questions though, if you do not mind.
This medium that said that wall was a vortex. You state in paragraph three that your Mother went to see a Medium. I would take that to mean that the Medium was not at your house, but at a different location. Can you please tell me how she pointed out that wall and "marked" it as a vortex without actually being there?
How much does your Mother trust this Medium?
Also. You state that your Grandfather has cancer. First and foremost. I am so sorry about the diagnosis, is he in treatment? If so, what form of treatment?
And I have GOT to say... You asked if there was a ghost in the house, but were surprised to have a ring flung at you from across the room, and still say you got no response from the question. I should say that was a pretty strong response.
I am just... The first being, your Mother went to a Medium for, but when you told her about the ring she did not believe you? Why do you think that might be? If she did not believe you, WHY did she tell you to try and talk with it?

I suggest you tell it to leave.
IF you have a vortex in the wall of your dining room, there is nothing KEEPING them there. I would not so much worry about the man and the woman who formerly lived there. They are just residual energies (as you said the Medium told your Mother) and can not harm you. They are "just" a replay of events (like a movie) that is playing out in the fabric of the air.
Why is it that you think the presence that you feel is evil? There are times that our own FEAR is what we are sensing off a being. Is it possible that it is not evil?
Think hard please, before answering that.

Your newspaper article is simply a coincidence. We have coffee charities out here often. People would rather pay a huge price for coffee and a donut for charity than just giving to charity. The fact that your grandfathers nurse works at the place mentioned is just... It happens. Read the article, would you? I am just guessing, but I bet it will tell you EXACTLY what it means. Just let that one go.
But the coffee smell... I would have to go for the residual energy of one of your residuals making coffee for the love of her life...
Thank you.

hello, thank you for you comments you've given
This morning my mother phoned me to complain of a strong smell of coffee in the kitchen (no one has coffee in this household, my mum get's migraines from them) then the newspaper said " coffee morning for cancer charity
For the macmallian charity group "
My grandfather has cancer, and his nurse works at macmallian
Please explain this?
And also why is there a demon in my house?
Please help me, I have the holy bible on my bed at all times, but the vortex always makes me want to look behind it, and then when I do, I get a cold sensation on my feet 😢

Since you initiated conversation with it, you gave it permission to be more active. It is now feeding off your fears.
It sounds like a demon is now at your place.
It's best to pray to God about this. It will make the demon go away temporary.
If you pray to God to send a Angel to help you, it may fight off the Demon. Pray to Michael the Archangel and he may drive off the demon. Pray to your Guardian Angel to keep you feeling safe.
Keep on lights, throw salt around, and have silver and crosses around you.
God Bless

I don't know if this helps, but when you see anything getting too close to you, try to picture a white bubble around you that they can't get through. I know this works for me, so I hope it may work for you too. I've seen a black mist too, and picturing a white light almost always makes mine go away. Good luck.

Perhaps having your house blessed would be a good idea. And the vortex, could you tell us how it feels when you go there. ❤

You are not alone, please take comfort in the knowledge that there are others who see the same. You should get a necklace of a cross (or whatever your faith path is) and when you wear it you must believe that it will protect you. The belief is the most important element. Objects have power because we believe it does. You're afraid and why shouldn't you be, you don't understand what's going on. For our comfort and ease of mind I strongly suggest the necklace and belief that by the grace of your higher power, you will be protected. Hanging evergreens over your doors won't hurt either.

well I'm 14 years old aswell its pretty scary when things like that happen. I get really freaked out in my bedroom cause at times when my cat is on my bed she starts freaking out and hissing at me madly, but I haven't done anything wrong! Then things move and things get pulled down in the middle of the night! Its only in my bedroom though. I would say if its like a poltergeist and if it gets worse... Really worse then try to get a priest to perform an excorsism in the home, it work with my teacher when he had a naughty one in his home! Hope this helped 😊
