How Can I Help My Husband


We been living in our house for a mere 9 months or so and immediately upon moving in we knew there was something here. Within about the first week, I was taking a shower, and when I got out and looked in the mirror there was a woman behind me with long, tangled hair, and she was VERY pale.

Most of the activity is in line with the typical ghost story noises and doors opening and closing by themselves although you can actually see the door knobs turning. We have several recordings from over night, the spookiest of which was one where you could hear my husband (who should have been asleep) talking with a man, telling him "not to look in there". He has no memory of this taking place, and I was just in our bedroom so I would know if he had a friend over. All of it has seemed pretty harmless which is why we have had no problem staying here, until recently.

We keep being woken up by screams and slams. Most notably was a few days ago when I was in the garage doing laundry, my kids were in the living room drawing. I heard a little girl yelling and screaming bloody murder. I ran into the house thinking maybe it was my daughter, and my kids had no idea what I was talking about.

The last few weeks my husband has not been able to sleep at all. He wakes me up in the middle of the night talking about having such terrible nightmares he can't get back to sleep, visibly shaking, and how he feels like someone pressing on him. He has started talking about someone named "Cocabel" (sp?). He is starting to get so tired and frustrated, and I have no idea how to help him, this is my main concern.

I am a stay at home mom, I can afford losing sleep. He can't, he works in very dangerous conditions (confined space welding in the water pipes for the city) and needs to get his sleep.

I googled Cocabel and this site came up:

I'm not sure the validation it can provide, but I thought I'd throw it out there!

Wow, purplepiggie. What kind of search engine do YOU have, because when I looked it up, there was a ten page look up list of peoples surnames, company names and a few stories from here. Wonder what makes the difference? 😕

May I suggest, mbernsen, if you are more comfortable with it, why do you not approach someone in your church who is less imposing than one of the Pastors can be? There are times, with well placed drop words, that the social side of church is just as important as the fellowship side. Oft times, hidden in the face of what one prefers to be viewed as, IN church, you can find the biggest asset. Perhaps someone can inadvertently, or straight up POINT you in the right direction.
Good luck to you.

I googled Cocabel and it came back on a list of demon names. You may want to google it yourself and def speak to your church.

Have you tried to get anyone to help you? This ghost could be dangerous 😐
And it could try to hurt you, your kids and mostly your Husband
Try to get someone like a Ghost Hunter or such
Like someone who can make it go away 😁

Thank you everyone for your responses. I have asked whatever it is many times to leave in the name of the Lord... We are VERY spiritual people who read the bible every night. Other than that I have not attempted to communicate with it because it is expressly forbidden in the bible (Deuteronomy 18:11) and I believe that would only make things worse. I suppose the most intelligent approach would be to speak to our church about a blessing, but the subject is just so controversial I suppsoe we're just afraid of their reaction.

Hello, mbernsen.
May I ask if you, or you husband, ever simply told this being that it is not welcome in your home and must leave? You do not have to consciously "talk" to a "ghost", you can just straight up talk to the air, if you are more comfortable with that.

If it is really starting to bother you, you need to take back control of your home there are many ceromonies and practices on this site that can help you get rid of these unwanted guests. What where the previous owners like? And house and land history etc! All the best to you.

Thank you for sharing.

dont do what jitow said. Its a violent ghost, its pissed off as it is and its desperate to move on, try communicating but be careful. DONT TRY TO WARD IT OFF, it will get even more pissed off and f**k with you like you won't believe. I really want those recordings like you wouldn't believe, please please send them to me, and anything else you have

There are a few quick and simple thing that you can do to test these experience that may even clear things up. Any time that you hear or see anything or the pounding starts, or you are awaken. Simply say out loud, "God rebuke you!" "I rebuke you in Jesus name!" and make note of the reaction. There may be no immediate reaction other than it ceases. You may be able to do this enough to get whatever it is out. At least you will be able to determine if you need a spiritual solution. I would not call a group in that is just coming to catch evidence and document it. If you bring a group in, make sure that they can at least bless the house for you. Please use these reactions and I think you will be pleased with the result. Do it right away and keep us posted on the reaction. Thanks, Jitow

Thank you for sharing with us. The only advice I can give is to smudge your home, buy some gems to put under your pillow, put a dream catcher above your bed and a bible next to your bed. If that doesn't work, find a paranormal group to come in and help you rid the place of whatever is causing the issues. Sounds like you got a upset ghost or two. Sleep is so important, I know I haven't slept all night since December. Good luck and let me know if I can help with anything at all. ❤
