My name is Eric and my house is haunted. I recently moved into my grandparents old home. My grandfather passed away several years ago. My grandmother has now moved to an old folk's home down the street. The paranormal activity began the day I moved in.
There was a note my mother and I found taped on my grandmother's wall. The note was in her handwriting and didn't seem to make much sense of anything. We decided to throw it away and think nothing of it. The next day, walked into her old room to find the note crinkled up, taped back on the wall where we had found it. It wasn't 'till later we found out that note was memories of her mother who committed suicide when she was just a young girl (10).
Over the past month I have lived here, I have experienced several more unexplainable events. I had been hearing things throughout each week that involved sounds of someone knocking on doors, glass breaking, and doors that are shut to rooms trying to open. This is the beginning of the extreme events that have happened recently.
About a week ago I woke up at 3:45ish in the morning to a freezing cold house. I checked the thermometer and it read 37F. To me this was a shock considering I had my heat set at 70 and the low temp that night was in the low 60's. I then noticed the chair in the room with the thermometer, it was fully reclined. This particular chair is an electronic chair in terms of which position you would like the chair. My grandfather had polio and needed such amenities. As mentioned, I noticed that the chair was reclined, and unplugged. I had never plugged it in when I moved it from one side of the room to the other when I was cleaning the house. I called my sister in a state of confusion, and asked her to stay on the phone with me as I ventured the house. As I walked into my grandmother's old room, I found a white sheet that appeared to be "ironed on" the floor. It was positioned as a straight out rectangle on the floor perpendicular to the bed I had moved in there for my guest room. The bed I had moved in was my grandfathers. The bed of which was positioned the same way previously as I found it in his room when he was still in the present.
I had been trying to piece these clues together to establish a reason behind the unexplainable events. My family decided to do some research on the matter at hand and decided to do research in hopes to a solution. My aunt Sue found that if you burned sage in a specific way throughout the house it would cleanse the house of any unwanted activity. I believe this created the unwanted being to become more upset.
The past two days after the "cleansing" I have experienced more than asked for. The first night after our family gathering, I continued to hear something trying to get out of one of the doors in my home. It sounded like the door was locked from the inside and trying to get out. I'm still unsure which door the noise was coming from, but it sounded to be fairly close to the room I was sleeping in.
The next night, I had several friends over to comfort my insecurities of the house. Approximately 3:30am, we started hearing footsteps near the kitchen and stairway to the basement. Before we went to the basement, we went through the house to justify the artifacts of the house (i.e. Doors closed, lights off, and pictures straight). When we went downstairs to perform this specific ritual, we heard footsteps upstairs. When we made our way upstairs we found my grandfathers old room door cracked open to the point where you could visibly see in.
Today, at about 12:30 I continued to hear the door shaking as previously mentioned. I continued watching television and was trying to take an afternoon nap; two times I heard something out of the normal. I heard this voice what sounded like "no erk" and "a", on two separate occasions.
I'm confused with everything going on, and am seeking help on the matter. I'm trying to include everything. I'm 24, the grandson of my grandfather.
I don't know what's going on, but as I write this, I continue to hear the noises. Help.
