I know this happened a long time ago, but it has always been on my mind and no one really believes me, so I thought it would be good to post it onto a ghost site were people can help me rest my mind.
I was about 8 at the time, we just moved house into this fairly new, large 2 storey house. I liked it at first but I could never get to sleep there. My sister, who was 14 at the time, got a Ouija board which she used one night with her friend. According to her the blinds had moved, a belt fell off her bed and our cat looked up at her stereo freaked out and tried to escape the room. I don't know if it was because of that happening, it put images in all of our heads but a few strange things happened.
First off, in my brother's room (which was next to my sister's) the TV would turn off by itself and his stereo would turn up by itself. One time the garage door opened by itself. One thing which has always stuck into my mind was when I was sleeping in my mums bed and she was downstairs, the TV was on and it was playing Sex and The City which got really loud and woke me up so I turned it down, I then heard foot steps along the hallway run towards the bed. (The bedroom had two wardrobes which faced each other in a small hallway from the entrance of the main bedroom, they where mirrored) the floor would always crack when someone walked on it, and it made that noise when I heard the footsteps. I told my mum about it but she says it was probably someone walking past the door but I know what I heard, it wasn't from the outside of the room.
During this time, my parents divorced and seeing I didn't like sleeping in my room alone I would stay in my mum's room all the time. I used to see what I thought was a hooded man but in the morning it was always just a fan, but at night it looked completely different. I think that one was just my imagination. Two of my friends who were neighbors said they went up to the front door to see if anyone was home and the house was black and they saw a quick flash go past the door.
My mum also got very sick during this time and a kind stray cat who made our house his home (we ended up keeping him he was so lovely) got hit by a car, but lived. It seemed as if it was bad luck.
My sister said she went and got the Ouija board 'blessed' last year and the psychic said it had a strong evil presence. I don't really know what to believe. It doesn't seem like much, but it has a made a huge impact on me and now I get these weird uneasy feelings in certain houses and I am very afraid of the dark (at 18, so it's pretty sad).
This house was in the Gold Coast area of Queensland, Australia. One of my neighbors still lives there and the current owners haven't seemed to have experienced anything, in fact they are renovating the house. So if it wasn't the house, what was it?
Nothing happened once we moved, I felt really safe at our new house. But this old house, it confuses me.
Sorry for this being so long.
