I would like to know where in Burlingame this was? Do you remember the address or the intersection of where you lived? I happen to live in Burlingame and have a few unexplained things happening in my apartment... A stretch, but you never know!

Great story! And very well written. It reminds me of my fathers old house. Spooky place I hated. Glad your out of there!

NEVER use an ouiji board! Those are really just pieces of crap. I think the energy of an evil spirit did that stuff to you--a certain item must be removed from your house so that stuff doesn't happen again.

I'd be used to it if I were you. You should really go back to the apartment and check if everything's ok. So others wouldn't go there and get terrified.

Yes, very true Martin... But I think after all of that I would probably have gone insane by the time 15 years had passed.

Well, QueenTas, if you did that, you'd probably have done worse to yourself than any spirits could have done! So you should be more scared of yourself ;)

Wow, I don't think I would have been able to handle that, Sadly I probably would have killed myself.

I gotta give props to you for being able to handle it, and live with it even at such a young age.

Well written, you took your time and opinion. I also think that's the best story so far. And I agree with Martin, take that story to 'A Haunting' from Discovery Channel.

That's a really scary story. And yes, you should submit it on discovery channel's, "A Haunting."
It would make a perfect ghost story. I wish you good luck that something like that doesn't happen again.

Hey Kathleen, this is indeed the best story on this site so far. You and your family were very brave to live in that house for 15 years after the things you guys experienced. I would definitely not like to live in a scary, haunted, chaotic house like that, with a trio of mischevious ghosts on the loose, and it also sadly seems like they caused you more harm then ghosts are thought to. I hope they didn't cause harm that was too painful or left you marks. I do also think that your story should come on the dicovery channel, it's really worth it. It probably already did, since you typed this story 2 months ago, and I barely took notice of it. It is as a matter of fact, strange how your mom would take on different moods and personalities, the ghosts probably decided to take control over her body and use it to cause physical harm. I am dubious to the fact that the minister who once lived there didn't drive the ghosts away with prayers or something, or maybe he tried but failed in the process. It is scary and very unsoothing to find floating heads in your house, which your parents saw. It really shouldn't be surprising since so many people have lived there in the past and they can take on any shape. It, however, isn't that surprising either that the quija board made things worse, which happens usaully and commonlly. Well, I've given you the best feedback that I could and I hope that you still come on here, because I hope that I didn't write such a long comment and for nobody to get it, well bye.

Hi Kathleen,

I to live in the Bay Area that had some incidents such as yours, being pulled of the bed by the ankles "my sister" etc... I am also fascinated by the afterlife and would be interested visiting a haunted dwelling next time you go.

Dear Kerry, I am currently working on a book to educate people about spiritual protection. A couple of years after moving out of the haunted house, a friend brought over a Ouija board. We "played" with the board, and unintentionally stirred up some poltergeist entities. I had no idea how to get rid of them, so I wrote an organization called Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship. They gave me some excellent advice that got rid of the spirits right away. This is a case where these spirits were not haunting the house I lived in. They were called there, and then I didn't know how to tell them to leave. One good affirmation is "Anything that does not belong to me I send back to where it does belong to be worked out in love and light." Another is "In the name through the power and by the word of Jesus Christ, the Holy Christ, a wall of living flame is built around me. I give thanks that it is done. Amen." Obviously this second one is Christian and will not appeal to every religion, but it works. As soon as I stated those affirmations the entities left immediately and never returned. There is more power in the spoken word, so I recommend audibly stating these affirmations. Due to my experience with the haunted house, and Ouija board experience I just told you about, I began studying ghost busting techniques. I have been called to get rid of ghosts, or just to validate that they exist in a home or business. I use the term "ghost" in this posting to loosely to cover all invading invisible energies. About 2 weeks ago I was invited to inspect an apartment building. A young man moved out in a hurry because he was having very stressful experiences with a ghost that would attack him in the middle of the night. I wasn't asked to run the ghost(s) out, only to validate that they existed. I wasn't told anything about the experiences when I went in to investigate. When I told the inquirers what I "got" at the apartment, they validated what I felt was exactly as the young man described and experienced. I taught them how to use these protections, in case the entities had become attached to the young man. This method works 100% of the time. It has never failed me, or anyone I have given this information. I suggest that you use these protections. These will not repel your angels or spiritual guides; these will actually make it easier for your angels and spiritual guides to communicate with you because they will not have to run interference to get through to you.

Dear Kelly and Angela, Thanks for your comments. From what the both of you said, I can't help wonder how many children have been traumatized by similar experiences. At 12 years old I showed signs of post traumatic stress. Of course, no one knew what that was in those days. I laughed almost constantly as if I was on the edge of hysterics, I shook like someone with Parkinsons. I became withdrawn, where I had been out-going. As an adult I took hypnotherapy classes from Charles Tibbits, who had a stellar reputation as one of the great hypnotherapists. Under hypnosis I recalled events that occured that I still don't recall consciously. One of the events involved yet another ghost. He was quite unusual looking. I told not one about this session with Charles Tibbits. A few years later I was sitting on the front porch with my Dad and one of my cousins. My Dad discussing the haunted house and his experiences with my cousin. Then my ears perked up when he described the ghost, I saw in my hypnotherapy session, to my cousin. After the hypnotherapy session I thought that perhaps what I "saw" under hypnotherapy may have been metaphorical like symbols one sees in dreams. When my Dad described this being there was no mistaking the description. What I saw under hypnosis was that I was in my backyard. This entity came towards me. The entity resembled someone in a skin diving suit. When this entity came close - where there should have been a face mask or a face - was what looked like swirling gasses - like swirling clouds. Charles Tibbits, and the other students present described what I looked like under hypnosis. Charles Tibbits said he had never seen such a reaction in his entire career. He said I did not move my face, the skin on my face moved in a manner as if someone was pressing it from the left side of my face to the right side. I had a look of total revulsion on my face. The others there concured that this is what they witnessed as well. Everyone was quite shook up. He pressed me on to see if this was possible a sexual assault, but nothing came up during the session other than this entity coming at me. I never returned to finish my certification as a hypnotherapist. This session disturbed me so much. I couldn't help but wonder what else may have happened that I blocked out of my conscious mind.

I share your feelings when it comes to these things. As far back as I can remember these kinds of things happened to me too. It wasn't just contained to one house though and it still happens to me today. The biggest thing I learned out of it all: my children will never hear "it's just your imagination". Which they are as sensitive to these things as I am. We openly discuss it and share our stories with each other. Children should be taken seriously when they say they see and feel things, sometimes a childs imagination can get wild, but come on when they are terrified, step up. Children need to be listened to and trusted just like adults.

i always find it disturbing when your a child and adults don't believe your word. They dismiss things as imagination,or nightmares. I really understand your history.

I was always scared as a child but i could not articulate my fears. I always sensed that there was an unseen presense in my bedroom at night. I lived with the fear for many years. I could never feel safe at night. I know it was not my imagination.

I later as an adult found the truth to my chilhood mystery. As a child I had been tormented by abusive family members in the day time and at night i had dark entities or spirits haunting me. I felt terrified every night. I was never hurt only that i sensed something bad was about to happen every night.

I learned to cope with it. It was hard. I lived with years of post traumatic stress flashbacks as an adult. I once again was trying to figure out my fear was it real or was it post trauma flashbacks?

I found out that it was both. I was suffering double terror, spirits who were making sounds and noises that triggered my flashbacks. I was losing my mind. I fought back with words but that didn't work. I then got help from a native medicine woman and she lifted off the hold that those spirits had over me.

This has been recent intevention, i don't suffer fear of night terrors or flashbacks or spirits anymore. I can go to sleep at night and not feel any presense or flashbacks. I have a better life now.

Your story triggered me to talk about my experiences with spirits.

Absolutely terrifying. I don't know how I would have gotten through it. As a kid I was always fascinated and frightened of ghosts, and I didn't even live in a haunted house. Truly amazing.

I recently read an article written by a realtor about "disclosures" on real estate which included relating information about "haunting." When I watch real haunting stories on TV, most people have the sense to move out or do something about the haunting such as calling in ghost busters or a Priest. The people that sold us the house moved to the next street. They only lived there about 3 months. I remember that they left some of their belongings behind including silverware pieces with their last name initial "R" engraved on it. My Mom called Mrs. Reynolds to ask her if she could bring over her belongings, and Mrs. Reynolds said to keep everything. As a child, even when my Mom & Dad were still invalidating the phenomena as "the house settling" etc., I was still scared. There was something creepy that I couldn't articulate like the feeling of someone staring at you when there was no one there. After I submitted the article a series of experiences flooded my memory. One day when I came home from school and found all of my goldfish dead on the floor. My Mom called the pet store to see if this is a common occurrence. The pet store owner inquired if the water was too high, which it wasn't. I had most of these fish for years, and knew how to care for them. He said that one fish jumping out might occur if the water was too high, but all 8 fish jumping out of the bowl was not an ordinary occurrence. I have no doubt that the ghosts killed them. They used to mess up my room. I would just finish cleaning it, walk to the kitchen, return to find the entire room in chaos, much worse than when I began cleaning it. One time I bought nail polish with my allowance. I was very excited because it was the first time I had ever bought something like that. When I finished, I put the nail polish in the cupboard above the sink in my room. I went to the front room to show my Mom my painted nails. When I returned to my room the polish had been thrown all over my new dresser that I loved. My Dad had refinished it, it was an antique and it was so pretty. I was heartbroken.

Wow, Kathleen, this is one of the best stories on this site as of yet. It's worth being showcased in the "A Haunting" series at the Discovery Channel. Very well written. I pity the new occupants of that house!
