Barney Is Here And My Hyper Excited Ghostie


Most of you people know my situation with a shadow person I call Jamie. Well I've finally returned home from visiting my family in El Paso and returned home. I was nervous about the thought of returning and silently prayed to God for protection and cried like a baby. My mom didn't notice, being angry with my negative, non-responsive attitude that my Grandmother had said about me. Being in a family that blew me of as a crazy person didn't help with improving my confidence in returning. Anyways onto my story,

The instant we pulled up in the driveway, I looked at the side of the house and saw Jamie staring at me. A shadow of a man or boy and felt a rush of excitement coming off him. He was happy I had returned while I felt the opposite and wanted to run away to my friend house. I had grabbed a couple of suitcases and felt him running up to me, which set me into coward-mode and hightailed it inside and hugged my dad who I hadn't seen in three long weeks. I walked out and saw him again and I just stared at him for a moment before walking back to the car to grab the remaining bags and ran back inside. I know I was being a coward and half regret doing it when he only wanted to say hello. I can't shake my feeling of him unlike my ability to be comfortable around my other ghostie who stayed at my Grandparents house.

A few hours later after getting scolded for my behavior at my Grandparents, I finally managed to sleep in my room, I had made my mom bless my room so nothing evil could enter and I felt something enter, I felt there were two this time one was Jamie and the other I had a gut feeling that it was my dog who had died recently, Barney. We have his ashes that is next to my mother's side of the bed along with another box that hold my dog P.J.'s remains. My house didn't have that tension filled feeling anymore and had a light, relaxed one instead. I woke up at around 5-6 in the morning due to my dad going to work and I crawled in with my mother and wasn't bothered afterwards though my dog continued to lick me and stare at a wall.

What should I do for now?

I'm not feeling like how I felt when I first started seeing him but he still scares the living daylights of me.

Also as I said in my story, the feeling in my house was MORE relaxed less filled with negativity. I am completely fine with him in my home tho I just know he's there. I'm more at ease and he behaves tho sometimes I just stare at him like a dork and wonder if I'm just going insane but anyways he's more how can I put it... Happy and I really enjoy his company at times cause of some constant family issues that make me feel like I'm drowning in negativity and I feel him somewhat touch my hair. He's like everyone else, moody, easily bored, caring just like a big brother that I never had, being a only child. There is another spirit at my friends house that doesn't seem to like me around much tho and imagine how I feel bout a suffocating, jealous aura in her house. But anyways I'm truly fine and more hopeful than how I've been since the end of June, take care, Katherine

Hello people of YGS thanks for reading my story, everything is much better after telling him that I don't feel at ease with him around me and would appreciate if he backed off a little. I'm completely fine tho he still roams around my room and scares me at times but I'm much better and thank you for reading. He's more sweet now cause I think he's been watching me go through different emotions. He's like a brother to me now..., Katherine

It's not that I do not like ghosts. I just feel for Emerald Angel. If she's frightened or uncomfortable, then she should able to tell Jamie to leave. As WhiteBuffalo stated, home is where you should be able to take refuge and feel safe.

Hello Katherine,
I am wondering... Back when "Jamie" was using scare tactics to have you nearby (in that other story that got you LOTS of comments) you had an awesome ally in an elder adult family member... Have you still that support?
As for your past experiences with Jamie, I have to agree with Scooby. You need to firmly, politely and respectfully tell the air about him to leave. If he is causing you so much apprehension, you do not need him in your living space. If you are nervous about returning to your very own home, that is really not a good thing. Home is supposed to be where one feels safest.
Again, as for your past with Jamie, I would NOT suggest you trying to converse with him. That is, unless something has DRASTICALLY changed.

I agree with Pendragon with the use of crystals. I have a small rounded Black Obsidian stone and, resting on a single-terminated quartz crystal, protects my whole house.

It's also worth noting the movemenst within a 'blessed' area - if the blessing/cleansing was done properly then no negative spirit should be able to enter.

But beware - if you always feel some sort of negative emotion when around Jamie, then it may be that Jamie is feeding off these.

Ask firmly (out load or in your head) "What is your intention in approaching me?" and wait for a response. This response may be an emotion you feel (eg relief), a thought (eg 'I mean you no harm'), or a physical reation from the spirit (he may back off).

In this astral plane, we control things. It's all intention, and if you really believe in what your asking then it will happen. When communicating with spirits think beyond the words and really 'feel' the meaning of what you're saying.

I'm going to agree with Blizzard. Just because Jamie is a shadow doesn't mean he's bad. If you believe that power crystals work, Black Obsidian stones are good for protection and meditation. You could locate a set and set them at your nightside, and saya prayer while holding them before going to bed. Just a thought.

Also; I think when you left, Jamie realized how lonely he is without you. He likes you areound, though he can be moody. THe fact that your room was blessed, and that he could still come in is something on it's own. Maybe the blessing is what cheered him up; Maybe he was upset that nothing was being done in the house? I'm not sure. Funny though that he cheered up after that blessing.

Politely but firmly tell him to leave. I've always been told that they are supposed to leave if you tell them to do so.
Best of luck to you!

If you are scared of him I might suggest to ignore him and I say this thinking he might eventually get bored but who knows.

If I were in a situation where I was being bullied or scared I would try to ignore it, it does work sometimes.

It's natural to be afraid of ghosts. It's human instinct saying that something is wrong and out of place. I find it funny that Jamie was so welcoming, and that he missed you so much. It shows you the softer, teddy bear sid of him. I'd wait it out, and see how he continues to act. It's also very sweet that your dog has come back to visit.

How has he been lately?
