Wow. This one was really terrifying. Thank you so much for sharing. I am also here in Oregon
Zaruje, I have seen a pair of fluorescent green glowing eyes without pupils staring through the window pane while the street dogs all howled in a perfect chorus. It was around midnight & I was trying to sleep. I guess it was a warning signal. The fact that even the dogs acknowledged its presence is very baffling as though they were welcoming it.
Thank you, Eerie69. Yeah, I think she must be at peace now. If I remember it right, she was wearing her normal clothes when this happened. But everything around her, especially her face, was so dark, like she was just a shadow.

I also think it was residual. You were just time traveling in a way it's like his time traveling hallucination LOL I was going to suggest that it was probably that. But it looks like you think that that is what it was as well. Native Oregon chick right here. Born and raised. Currently in Portland. But I am from some smaller towns near Salem. Had lots of experiences, myself. I kind of want to know where this was at.

Speaking of haunted theaters here in Oregon. I had a really weird experience at the pentacle Theatre outside of Salem/ West Salem/Independence.

Hi Melda!
I am sorry, I needed a break. Life changes & job drama, & all sorts of stuff. I haven't logged in for months. I'm excited to catch up with you all, hope there is some fun stuff involving you & LadyGlow for me! πŸ˜‰
Hi adove! I am so sorry about what happened to your previous apartment. I am not an expert nor I am trying to project myself as one, but I think what you felt was normal especially after experiencing such a traumatic incident. I do believe that whatever you saw that night, was your angel of some sort. Can you please describe more the eyes? Was it the eyes of a normal human being?

Thankfully no one in your family got hurt. Thank you for sharing!

I agree with both of you. I have created my own path too. All those experiences I had as a child completely shaped my mindset from the beginning. I didn't hold a religion as a child but just vaguely believed in a higher power. I was young so didn't have strong beliefs or a family that put them on me. Once I saw those things and kept seeing them, it made me believe there are many things going on in this world we don't and may never fully understand.

I don't know if they are ghosts, demons, fairies, or just things we as humans can't conceive, perhaps just my brain making things for me to see. I find being agnostic the way for me because religion didn't work but atheism doesn't define me either because I have a hard time holding a strong belief (or lack of belief). I just have lots of different ideas and theories.

I don't understand those who shame or try to convince others to their path. That is so off-putting and immediately makes me feel awkward around people. I used to work for a catholic organization and when someone in my circle was listening to me talk about my job they just started going on a rant about how it's dumb to believe in religion. I was just over here like "um? I am just talking about what I do, which was being a resident assistant?" It was so weird how as soon as they knew it was a catholic organization, they just went on rants. I think a lot of people both religious and atheist are uncomfortable with not having the security of absolute knowledge of why we are here and what everything means so in turn they become pushy and obsessive treating others like idiots for it. I find the comfort in being agnostic and not knowing absolute truths if there are any at all. I think everyone has to find a way to be comfortable with their existence without bothering others.

It's awesome that you found a path that is comfortable for you lilpeachy.
Bibliothecarius in Jacey's Sight
Wow, Kest!

Way to come back with a bang!

I know you've mentioned before Jacey outgrew some of her abilities (as usually happens around the time kids start to sort out "fact" from "fiction") as she grew up. As she's now a teen, I'd recommend paying close attention around her moods because suppressed and forgotten abilities, as I've said before, can build up into a reservoir of untapped psychic energy. This untapped energy *may* lead to poltergeist phenomena when she's frustrated or upset, but that's an eventuality not to be taken lightly.

Does she know about your own encounters? I can't imagine that you've kept them all to yourself, given their number and variety, but it can be reassuring to teens that even their own most confidence-shaking experiences have some precedent in the family, thereby giving them someone to talk to without fear of being committed to an institution.

I honestly have no idea why many people would just linger in the cemetery of their interment; there are so many other places to go and things to see. I know where I'm going to be buried, because I've described it to my wife, but I don't think I'm just going to linger *there* as it seems like a huge waste of haunting potential. Hell, it'd be fun to linger in museums after the guards have set the motion-sensor alarms...πŸ˜†

Good to have you back in the conversation, Kest.

Best,
Biblio.

P.S.: I'm not trying to trivialize Jacey's cemetery sightings in any way; it's just that I'm going to be a pall-bearer early tomorrow afternoon & don't want any unexpected distractions.
That's great, lilpeachyghost!

It's one of those lines that Shakespeare absolutely nailed: "This above all, to thine own self be true..." Sure, Polonius is an idiot in *Hamlet,* but it's because he doesn't follow his own sage advice.

I'm happily agnostic, now; allowing others the comfort of their beliefs, provided they don't get preachy with me. I half-jokingly told a button-pushing, religiously-zealous colleague that "I've met too many people to believe in a God who has an organized plan."

Best,
Biblio.
Hello Bibliothecarius, I'm no longer a person of faith or religion. I don't believe in any man-made god/religion. I do believe there is a higher power, if you will. But I don't think they are anything like what any of our earthly religions describe or believe in. They are quite possibly far beyond what we can comprehend as humans. I do still "pray" but I talk to and share my hopes and desires with beings of love and light, to maybe my ancestors, to Mother Nature, to whoever listens and, I dabble in Tarot. So I guess in a way, I do have faith but not the way I used to. I am definitely much more free to be who I truly am and in doing so, I'm a happier person.
Greetings, BiancaB, and welcome to YGS.

First, I'd like to reassure you that your family did nothing wrong in letting Sampson remain. You state that "I feel bad now that we never made the effort to try and move him on, or to cleanse the house before we left." You did not have sufficient knowledge at the time to determine whether or not he needed help; now that you know more about the situation, it is too late for you to do anything directly. You have to let that fact go instead of blaming yourself afterwards.

Two ideas come to mind: 1) If your sister is still friendly with the new residents, you may wish to have her tell them that Sampson died under sad circumstances. 2) If Sampson was sad or depressed when he died, that wouldn't necessarily correlate to some of the other experiences your family had; the new family may wish to keep Sampson around, for reasons I'll explain in the following paragraphs.

Your brother said "I keep seeing the faces," which is -obviously- more than one face. The violence with which the playroom door opened does not sound like it is compatible with Sampson's quiet trips around the inside and outside of your home. Sampson may have been a suicidal man, but that doesn't automatically make him a *bad* person. After he died, he may have realized the scope of the paranormal activity in the home and decided to stay to protect the next set of residents.

Suicide is a tragedy for those who are left behind, as it seems like the only hope of peace to the suicidal person; it is not often that the suicidal person wants anyone else to suffer, merely that he or she cannot continue in pain. Sampson's presence was probably a good counter-balance to the effects of the other supernatural activities in that home.

Best,
Biblio.
Greetings, lilpeachyghost!

I'll admit that this may not be as helpful as I'd like; however, I was asking myself the same two questions as I read your narrative: Is this a subconscious manifestation of feeling oppressed, or is it a hostile spirit? As prayer with a friend alleviated the situation (and ruled out sleep paralysis, to boot!), I'm inclined to go with it being a negative entity that was drawn to your inner conflict.

On a personal note, I spent a somewhat-awkward decade calling myself "a lapsed protestant" because I couldn't bring myself to admit that I am agnostic. I had not wanted to admit that I didn't have any real religious conviction, merely the desire to find the solace that others seemed to get from the practice of religion. Your shift in tone indicates that you are a happier person, now, and that's great! Any religion that tells you to be good, honest, and kind but to lie to yourself and to others about who you are as a person is *dangerous* to the psyche of people in genuine distress.

To that end, I'd like to point out that "faith" and "religion" are not the same thing. "Faith" is what you believe, "religion" is how you practice that belief. You left a church (mosque, temple, meeting hall...) that was stifling you, which was a very healthy step to take. If you are still a person of faith, I'm sure you can find a religious group who will accept you for who you -and who your partner- are.

My honesty required that I confront my doubts; yours required that you acknowledge your very human need for love. If you are still someone who maintains your belief in God, find a community that is as accepting and as welcoming to you as Jesus told his disciples to be.

Sincere best,
Biblio.
Charles, that sounds pretty scary! I'm picturing the camp/cabins where my kids have gone and I know my daughters would have been a bit spooked. Hope yours was all right?
Really interesting. Sorry to ask, but I don't see any photos? Is there a link I'm not seeing?
My daughter had an experience at camp last week that reminds me of yours. She arrived to camp early one morning and went to her cabin to hang up her bag. There was nobody else there. She noticed that there were small rubber bouncy balls on the floor as she walked in. As she turned around to hang up her bag she heard the noise of balls bouncing around and felt a ball hit her foot. She turned around and saw balls rolling around on the floor. There was nobody there. I wonder what happened.
Hello all, and thank you for your comments. Truly appreciated! Yes, my husband was definitely a Christian and I honestly believe he is in God's hands. A series of dreams over the last 25 years leads me to believe he's actually a warrior for our Lord, but those are completely other stories and not sure if they fit this website. One of them, however, was had by my youngest daughter by my current husband, who had this dream right before being baptised when she was ten (we had to wait to have her baptized due to husband being in military and deployed a whole lot). She dreamed of an "evil man" who was chasing her down our street and then a pickup truck "full of military guys" came around the corner (in her dream) and forced the bad man to go "down into the ground." One of the men, who she said looked just like her older sisters' daddy (we have photos of him still that she's familiar with) said to her, "You don't know me, but I know all about you!" and then they got in their big truck and drove away (in her dream still). When she told me about her dream, it made quite a bit of sense to me, that perhaps my late husband, a former Special Forces guy and all around GOOD GUY, actually does have some heavenly A-Team and goes around helping people. I do have an active imagination, however, when I have a First Intuition about things, I tend to think there's something to it. My attitude is, if it's NOT TRUE (and there's no way to prove one way or another) well, that's ok too. But we DO have intuitions, and we can connect dots on things over time IF we are paying attention. As for the pareidolia, Anno, that is always something I consider. And I think my son tried to explain to me the phenomena you suggest, but at 13 didn't have the words or expertise. Again, who really knows? I am going to submit a photo I took when I stopped the frames on the video I took, and let ya'll take a look. Not sure how long before it will be posted here. I'll send to the e-mail. Thank you all again!
Violet-Tartan in A Choice To Be Made
Wow.
Something not the same at all, yet kind of similar as a child, happened with me.
Vague memories of UFOs the forest and then waking up with literal dirt and Pineneedles all over my feet. This was a very interesting read. Thank you for sharing
Greetings, Dill, and welome to YGS.

My initial question was about the age discrepancy lady-glow pointed out; my second question about the tune you mentioned; my third was along the lines of WisconsinLady's "misunderstanding" comment; my fourth thought began in a similar in nature to Anno_Domini's comments (which I hope AD finds to be as pleasant a surprise as I did).

1. Please clear up the age discrepancy, as this is an odd error to make.

2. Beethoven's "FΓΌr Elise" popped into my head as I was reading. Was the tune the first minute of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfF0zHeU3Zs?

3. *If* the spirit is your grandfather, is it possible that a different relative has taken an object that he intended for you to inherit? He may be ransacking your room to see if you did get it. He may be getting agitated in his efforts to locate this item, thus causing your grandfather's increased misbehavior.

4. *If* the spirit's behavior is increasingly divergent from the grandfather you knew and loved, there are a couple of possibilities that occur to me: first, he may have had a very different temperament as a younger man, before growing older mellowed his attitude; second, it may not be your grandfather, but an ill-intentioned entity that was attracted to the grief your family is experiencing. I'm inclined to dismiss this idea as less likely than some of the others, as the activity is primarily focused upon both your grandfather's room and your room; if the disruptions were manifest in multiple rooms *equally,* and upsetting everyone to a similar degree, I'd be more inclined to believe this evil spirit as a likely cause. Anno_Domini & I seldom full-on agree, but the bruising and scratching suggest that there is merit in considering his suggestion, *especially* if the negative behaviors increase.

Best,
Biblio.

Fuchsia in Kitten Ghost
This is interesting because cats are known to sense when you're not feeling well or if there's a negative vibe about you. Your guardian angel is a cute kitten, I bet! 😊
Hi Dill,

My condolences to you for your loss. This entity that is causing havoc is NOT your grandfather. It is using the passing of your grandfather as an excuse to enter into your life. Already it has caused you to acknowledge its presence and address it (you were "speaking" to your grandfather).

I would advise you to seek help from your local church, try to find one who have prior experiences in dealing with these kinds of situations.

AD.
Anno_Domini in Odd Energy
Hi Karla,

I'm with Whatsherface91 here... It also seems that you may have approached a church with no prior experience in dealing with these manifestations. You might want to look for another church. Usually more established churches or churches from a larger "family" have more resources to tap on.

Also another observation, there is a possibility that these experiences are a product of a "curse" as all 3 members of your family are tormented by it.

Wishing you the Lord's deliverance.

AD.
Karla in Kitten Ghost
No. We have not lost any pets or anyone close to us. Have caught at least 4 orbs in the bedroom at the same time.
Hello MrsRamsey

Filming television screens in general will typically show lines. Vertical and horizontal. I have never seen diagonal.

It is highly unlikely that any kind of flashing or whatever lines pop up, will do an "SOS" by itself. Especially after you requested it. And from a ghost who was an aviator. Coincidences like that do not happen by chance.

Maybe do it again, coinciding with an audio recorder. See if you pick anything else up.
Bastet in Kitten Ghost
[at] Cuddlebear - In fact, yes, few years ago I befrended a stary cat. I believe this cat was something as a spiritual guide or something (even if this might sound crazy); he just appeared and wanted nothing more then to spend some time with me. I knew him for few months and then he went missing. I was looking for him and after a while I found out from some neighbours that he has been killed by a car. I was devastated and until this day think of him every day. So, yes, I could be that this was his way to connect with me once again!

[at] Karla - I'm loving to learn about you getting a video cam! Make sure you come back and post if you catch anything on video! Orbs seems great to see too...
maybe get a priest or cleanse in the house... Or burn some sage? Say prayers out loud command it to leave. Dont be afraid of it.
Move from the room or make someone else sleep with u too.
Okay so after reading your story, I have to say that you cannot connect to the other world so whatever you are connecting with is within this world and they live between us in the form of bad and good but mostly its evil, once a person is dead we cannot contact him in anyway cuz we would've then asked he or she that what happened to them after dying!? Cuz this is what everyone is curious about that where we go and what happened etc, which no one except the person himself who died can tell you but hes gone and have no contact with you whatsoever but the angels do give them access of dreams, they might come to your dreams telling you something in signs or by doing or saying weird things which may or may not makes any sense in real life but that's a code word which very rarely people know how to break which is a dream interpretation... So whoever you contacted wasn't any spirits but it was a demon if its not harming you then it can be good but still it can be evil who knows!? Demons have only ONE PURPOSE which is to stop you from reaching the truth and stopping you from walking on the right path and as long as you are lost they are okay that with but remember to invest your time in finding the truth instead of paying QnA's with these demons, find the truth and then stick to it cuz its going to change your whole perception of everything.
Anno_Domini in She Has My Face
Hi sunshinemilia, I think that your gut feeling (terror when you saw her as a shadow) tells you all you need to know about it. Please avoid it.

Lady-glow... Yes, to make it all the more convincing, I don't see why it cannot replicate the cross necklace. We must remember that real life is not like in the movies, where demons shirk away at any sign of the cross. There have been actual (documented) cases of demonic possession and influence upon Catholic priests (one such case documented in the book "Hostage To The Devil" by Malachi Martin), who went about their duties in their vestments and sacraments (but found it increasingly hard to perform their duties as their possession progressed).

Yes the while Christian cross reminds them of their eventual defeat by the Christ, but some of them seem to tolerate these reminders more than others.

BeautInside... Demons (from the Christian perspective) aren't exactly known for their truthfulness and forthrightness... In fact they existed before time was created so I can't imagine that they would be too impatient. I feel that our definitions of "demons" are not in sync, so I think it helpful that I explain that I am not talking about Hollywood-style definition of demons for theatrical effect, with red eyes and causing objects to fly about. In fact, demons are "deceiving spirits" (1 Kings 22:23). They're not going to show up with horns and breathing fire. They'd much rather appear as someone you have a connection with (deceased relative / friend / guardian etc) to lure one into a relationship with them.
I wish to hear more from you, and probably even talk to you if you don't mind sharing your email. Thank you
Hello The22centuryboi,

Thank you for inviting me to sit with you and have coffee or whisky. I don't drink alcohol or take drugs. I do drink a lot of cappuccino, morning, noon, and night. Lol.

I live in Australia. Your kind invitation is wasted on me. I'm too far away. Plus, I tend to like chatting on YGS instead of face to face with just one person, because here on YGS there are so many members who have given me strength to deal with my experiences and so many ways to rid the stubborn spirit who haunts me.

I'm glad I'm able to see my dad, brother and know they are looking after each other.

Thank you for your reply. I didn't expect to see you here because it's been a while since you posted this experience, but I'm glad you did return to read the comments.

Hi, Miandra.

Thanks for reading my story. No, I did not came back there often to ask around. As far as I remembered, there was nothing like that happened at the well. I have no intention to look in any further. I felt best to just leave it as a mystery...

Thanks.
_ _ _ __ __ __ _ _ _ is Morse code for SOS. You did ask if they could do SOS. Incredible 😲
Hello Miandra,

Thanks for the comments on this story. It has been a while. I am glad that you were drawn to my experiences.

Sometimes I do miss my grandfather, but that is life. My thought process is they live through the thoughts we have of them.

I do believe the atmosphere in the room was due to my grandfather, it gives me some solace.

On a lighter note, I would like to meet somebody who claims to be an expert on afterlife. We only have people who are experts of what they believe the afterlife is. I would love to listen to these stories some day. I think the stories here don't do enough justice to the situation. I feel enthralled when I listen to stories from somebody as I can see the emotions as well. Maybe you can share your stories with me some day over cup of coffee or a glass of whisky. I would really enjoy that.

Regards,

PJ.
EL_Aey_Night1986 in The Unknown Entity
I don't know, we tried to talk to the caretaker but he still persist that it is not allowed to enter as of the moment. As per instruction to him of the owner, I don't know if they are making some arrangement or what not. It was 2 years ago, this ber month i'm going back to Baguio. I'll try to go there again
Hi El. Di ba may bamboo museum sa loob nung laperal house? Bakit di kayo pinapapasok? Ang alam ko lang, yung 2nd floor ang hindi pwede puntahan, base nung nagpunta kami.
Dude, you should ask your parents to switch bedrooms and see if gramps makes a mess. Is he haunting all the people who took his stuff too?😁 😜 πŸ€”
EL_Aey_Night1986 in The Unknown Entity
Good to hear from YGS co-member about your creepy adventure in Laperal house and Panagbenga. I took picture of Laperal House from the outside because the caretaker would not allow tourist to enter inside. Good to hear that you were able to enter and experience Laperal House from the inside.
Also I heard a lot of stories about Diplomat hotel unfortunately, it was not a good stuff to experience. At daylight, the place is a perfect place to take photographs because you will not feel anything unusual but 5pm onwards is where some eerie vibration starts. (This is based on what I heard from some of my friends). I am considering to visit Diplomat Hotel as well, maybe this Ber-Month season.
I don't know about BS but I'd say maybe a little exaggerating. The part that seems off to me is where you say it takes 2 hours to put it back together. If there was 2 hours of damage to your room, wouldn't that cause enough noise for your parents to notice a commotion in there when it was occuring?

Regardless, some of this could be true. I think your Grandad just wants remembered. Pray for him. Have a mass said for him if you are Catholic. Take flowers to his favorite place. (By the way, where are the ashes?)

If you are not of a religion per se but believe in an afterlife then just envision your grandfather at peace and eternal happiness and will him with your thoughts to enter that peace.

If you think he is mad at some behavior you are engaging in, then stop whatever it is and vow to lead a life to honor him.
Dill - you will get lots of good advice from the well-intentioned members of the site, still, I would like to know the discrepancy between the age you say to be and the age group the system of the forum has registered you at.

I don't want to think you are trying to pull our leg BUT, it looks like you are.

Please clarify.
When I was seven, too many years ago, I saw my dad's grandmother in her house the night of her burial. Looking back, I know she was just saying goodbye, but at age 7, with limited understanding of death, it freaked me out seeing someone I knew had been put in the ground only hours earlier.
It took me like 3 hours to go to sleep.
I feel like either consciously or unconsciously he is trying to manipulate you do to his own insecurities and anxieties regarding his present situation. I think these visions are either visual manifestations of his own emotional state or possibly complete fabrications invented to probe your reactions. The only dangerous thing I can detect from what you have written is a potentially toxic relationship. My best advice is to spend some time on yourself - commit to spending a chunk of time every day to doing what centers you whether it's sitting by the water, meditating, creating, quiet time with a cup of tea, a long walk or run etc. Really do some soul searching and examine whether this relationship is adding to or draining your energy and happiness. I hope this man finds peace and security but, from what I have read, you may need to take a step back to insure your own. ❀
AugustaM in Hug From A Spirit
I know what you mean - living next to a mass grave, my apartment never feels empty. Even when no obvious activity is going on, there is always a feeling of having people around. I notice it most when I am alone in someone else's home or a modern hotel room - I suddenly find myself feeling dreadfully alone (and I'm an introvert so normally that shouldn't bother me).

I firmly believe that there is absolutely nothing inherently evil about a ghostly presence and that your gut can tell you more about their actual intentions than anything else. Trust yourself ❀
I think it unlikely that your grandfather is mad at you, speaking as a grandfather (of sorts) myself. Wisconsinlady may be on to something or you may have different entity to deal with. I would take Wisconsinlady's advice - should that not provide you with the results you want, look to cleansing rituals...
Karla in Kitten Ghost
Thank you Bastat. I just read your story. Although some of the experience is similar. This energy does not give us a loving feeling. Its actually the opposite. Its a heavy anxious feeling and these experiences are daily/nightly. There is no break. We are getting very little sleep. We bought a night vision video camera and although we have caught many orbs in our bedroom, during the times we are experiencing what feels like a cat walking along our legs nothing triggers the video camera at those times.
majarlika012 in The Unknown Entity
It really amazes me every time I hear or read ghost stories about Baguio City. When we went to Baguio for a vacation during the Panagbenga Festival, I was looking forward for a creepy adventure. We even rented a transient house inside the Teachers Camp where most of ghost sightings/manifestations were recorded. We even went to Laperal White House hoping to feel something but no. Maybe next time we include the Diplomat Hotel in our itinerary.
Bastet in Odd Energy
Hi Karla, I enjoyed reading your story - It's an interesting coincidence that I here just recently shared similar experience *Kitten Ghost* - it's quite similar! I did get a very positive feeling from this manifestation though... It can be that you are just sensitive to otherworldly phonemenon and not that your place is haunted (in an usual interpretatio from horror movies) 😊
Whatsherface91 in Odd Energy
Hi Karla it's nice to meet you. So I normally just like to read these stories and don't put in my 2 cents but since you seem desperate and have tried everything I would suggest rebuking it in the name of Jesus Christ. Also try praying more to god and leaving it to him. He wants to take your burdens away but you have to let him and trust him to do so. Don't depend on a priest to bless your house but go to Jesus himself and ask him to bless your house. I know this might receive a lot of criticism and I'm not in any way trying to enforce anything on you... But if nothing else works like you stated then try Jesus Christ and see what happens. Best of luck to youπŸ˜‰

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your grandpa. I just lost mine, as well.
If it is your grandpa, he may not be intentionally trying to scare you or hurt you. He may be trying to get your attention, and his actions are coming through differently than he wants. The more upset you are becoming the more upset he may be getting because he doesn't want to upset you.
Next time something happens, remain calm and understanding. Talk to him like you did before he passed. If he has something to tell you, tell him you will wait and listen until he can figure out how to express himself clearly. It might not be possible right away, so tell him you'll be patient.
If that doesn't help the situation, it may not be him. Let us know how things go. ❀

An intriguing tale... Have you recently lost a cat/kitten? My wife believes we are visited from time to time by one of our former cats.

In any event this certainly seems to have been a beneficial experience. Pets are said to improve our health and help us lead better lives.
LuciaJacinta in Grocery Store Ghost?
I really liked this one. I laughed at the onions. I think they were just there and easy for ghostie to throw. Could be a relative or something/one else. I have heard a few stories where people actually died in a store for one reason or another. Maybe you are a magnet to those that pass over.
I'm sorry for your loss. I think I've seen lines like that on vcr tapes too. It could've dust or static or a plausible reason. But, that doesn't mean that your husband wasn't using that to communicate with you. Spirits generally like to use electronic items to speak to loved ones when they can. The vcr tape might have been the opportunity for him to get his message across. Although, I don't know if he needs SOS. Was he a believer in the afterlife and a soul? Was a believer in a God or religion? If he was, maybe he'd like you to pray for the repose of his soul... Not sure what you believe but this is a pretty common thing in some religions. If you aren't a believer in stuff like that, maybe just visit his grave with some flowers and an offering of good intentions.

I really enjoyed this story and your other one too.
Hello Sunshinemilia,
This is, without a doubt, the saddest thing I have ever read on this site! It reminded me too, of friends who were expecting twin boys about 15 or 16 years ago, but when the big day came, there was only one live birth and the other was stillborn.
I can't even begin to imagine how that must have felt, but at least they got to hold the little body and tell him how much he was loved. They also named him and found a place in a beautiful and peaceful garden of remembrance, which was solely for children. They visit often with their other two children to spend time with their son and often take a picnic. Then when the boys birthday comes around, there's always a special cake with both their names on it.
I'm so very sorry your parents naver got the chance to do any of these things. The doctor's motives for not telling them of their unborn child may have been good, but they were wrong. Your parents should have been told, then maybe they could've done something for their lost little one. They are not to blame for not knowing, but now that they do, would they not consider doing helping her now?
You say your fear is 'letting her into your lives', but isn't she already there? She's been wandering around 'literally' like a little lost soul searching for her family, when what she needs is to be at peace.
Biblio is right! This child needs to be acknowledged by your family and given a name of her very own.
Maybe your parents would consider making a small plot on your land or garden for her and plant a tree or a pretty bush, with a little plaque with her name on it. Somewhere you could talk to her or lay flowers on her/your birthday and I wouldn't be at all surprised if you never saw her again!
PS...She hasn't got 'your face' btw, she has her very own which looks exactly like yours, because she's your twin sister! Best wishes to you and your family!
Gh0st_Knight in Not Your Average Ghost
[at] Anno_Domini Yes I'm aware and hope it is that but is it not strange that no one else have discovered it yet? The game has a large fan base and many people have found so many things but no one has discovered this, me and my brother are the only ones who had. I have done some research and still no one has owned up to it. My brother says there is hidden code in the room. Hopefully we find out about it.
Gh0st_Knight in Not Your Average Ghost
[at] Bibliothecarius Yes this is the same house, that would make sense that this is a prank. There are hidden secrets and glitches in games called "Eater Eggs" that the programmer puts into the game, we thought and my brother believes it to be that but it seems incredible and well done and no one else has witnessed it. If it's a spiritual entity, it's something that wants to make us believe it's imaginary or have a realistic explanation. I'm going to try to investigate.

Hello Dar77. Thanks for your story.
What town did that happen in?
This is very sad but good story.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad must've been an awesome dad.

God bless and take care! ❀ ❀ ❀
It sounds like a lower tier demon to me. Feeding off of fear. Try to get some holy water and white rubbed sage to purify and cleanse the house. It is feeding on y'alls fear.
I am so sorry for you loss. Wherever she is right now for sure she's happy and fine.

We have a same experience. It was also in the province of batangas.

Were she wearing black or just normal clothes? πŸ€”
This may sound creepy to you but I have had paranormal experience in my childhood and my mother put a goats head beside my pillow and left it there for a whole night and I was sleeping, in the morning the head was heavier... These demons have telepathic power by which they control our brains cuz they know that brain is the part which controls our entire body so they paralyzed it for few minutes or secs to make us feel helpless and to annoy us... So you need to give them someone else's head so they can leave yours, obviously we cannot give any humans head so take a goats head which is not damaged in any way, perfectly normal, put it on your pillow side and try to sleep then in the morning take the head and throw it somewhere far away from your home and make sure that the place you throw it at, no people are living there, a place where crows and eagles could bite into the head would be ideal. That's the instant and final cure to get rid of any demons you want to get rid off.
Burn sage in all the rooms in your home and perform a cleansing ritual
Weird. Reading this, I've re-envisioned what I've seen in dreams. I like climbing the ladder and escaping to a "secret" room where mostly only kids can go. Makes me feel like a kid too. And the fact it's somewhat forbidden makes it even better. So secluded, so quiet. Better when closed entirely. So uh, I decided to dig into this story and... I have familial connections. I don't know what to make of it but that's interesting, indeed. A quick googling shows the obvious familial ties but uhm, the O'Haras too, yes?
The comments below are wonderful, and I'd heed their wisdom. Personally, while I may not know about such particular curses, I'd say that a great way to clear oil is acids. I'd sweep the whole home, especially the entryway where there are smear marks. Then I'd douse the most seemingly affected areas with vinegar or lemon. Acids are great for breaking down oils. They also have the added bonus of denaturing proteins, sometimes those which are toxic or allergenic. The downside of any detox process is that for the next day or two you may feel *worse* than you did before. Sometimes you feel worse before you get better. So I can only imagine why opening all the windows made things worse. I'd be attacking *all* openings of the home with a spritz-bottle of vinegar. I suggest contacting a friend with an excellent sense of smell who can determine which areas of the house were attacked. Get friends with good eyes too. I'd scour the whole place and scrub and air things out. Expect to feel crummy for a good week but that combined with the spiritual defenses, I bet you can overcome this. (I'm realizing of course you're not there, physically, but these can be suggestions for your family who are there.) Best of wishes for you all. I believe in you.
I've spent the past 10 years fretting over air flow due to health reasons, and read much literature regarding how CO2 toxicity & low frequency sounds can induce panic attacks and feelings of being 'haunted'. My interpretation of these experiences is that, while it feels scary, perhaps, if there is a spirit, that spirit is trying to protect you from something. Perhaps your bedroom is not a safe place to sleep right now, due to air quality, vibrations, and/or sounds (esp considering that wiring is new and may not be entirely kosher with the original housing layout). Bear in mind that renovations often mean new fumes as well as some potential run-ins with uh, 'compatibility'. If it were me, I'd probably open up everything, and just slowly ease each door slightly closed bit by bit. Probably get some plants, open some windows, get some UV light in there. Old houses really need UV light to kill off mildew and mold and such. It seems a little odd to me that you feel the need to close every door. I close certain doors in my house because certain rooms need to off-gas a bit before I can really handle them flowing through my regular living space. What's going on in this house that you feel like you have to shut spaces off? Why does this spirit feel like that's the wrong thing to do? If I were a spirit, I'd be freaking the eff out someone wanted to obsessively latch everything closed. The new installations need to off-gas, even (especially) if they're walled in. Let some light in, get some plants, burn some (unscented) candles, open some windows, and play some nice music. Those are my suggestions. Just get a nice happy healthy vibe in there. 😊
Hi Didos89!

I am so sorry about what is happening to you and to your family. I am no expert. But I tell you what...

There's no more powerful than the love of god and the faith that you have for it. This may not be helping you but setting up a security camera around the house will be definitely a great idea to capture who could be doing it.

The more you seek god the harder the situation is going to be. DO NOT GIVE UP! Tell whoever is doing that that you ain't scared nor backing down. Like literally! Because the more you let them see you're givin' up is the more they get stronger. BE POSITIVE! Get in the house shout at those whoever is doing it. Make your family member feel light and positive through prayers.

Do not let them take over your family nor your house. Let them outta your place and your life and to your family.

I am from the Philippines. If only you could lemme know perhaps send me some pictures of what you have taken I would highly appreciate it

Hello Farah!

First of all my condolences for your loss. May she rest in peace.
My father died of cancer in 2007. Prior to his death, he used to tell us that he could see his dad and mother and sometimes he said that they are sitting beside him. He also says that soon he will depart and we must not feel sorrow. I know how it's feel seeing your dearest fall apart and you could not do much. It is not only frustrating but also heartbreaking.
Be happy and always keep good memories of her.

This is definitely scary! Feel sorry about what happened to your eldest son and happy for you guys that things just went back to normal after moving out.

Just a quick question, do you have any idea as to how old the piece of wood your ex husband got?

Or, do you think it has to do something with the old tenant there or perhaps the owner? Please shoot me an email for information.

Just one question. Did your son ever explain how 'George' was able to speak to your son while headless?
Unexplained in He Lost His Head
Excellent story, well written and very atmospheric. I wonder what happened to 'George'?
sunshinemilia in She Has My Face
also sort of an update I could just be overreacting: we don't usually talk about this subject out loud in my house especially not at night but 2 nights ago my boyfriend and I were speaking about her over the phone, he kept referring to the other spirits as well. He was encouraging me to write about the other spirits and encounters in my house. I started to feel uneasy and scared and I told him we shouldn't be talking about it. As if on queue my brothers came running to my room asking if I "heard it". I didn't hear anything and probably either could be that I don't have their gifts or because I'm very Hard of Hearing. They heard someone knocking on their window. My dad came into the living room and said he heard it on his window as well. He went into the backyard with his gun to make sure it wasn't someone outside, no one was there. I'm afraid, maybe it wasn't my twin it could have been a couple other ones, but I think something wants us to let it in.
sunshinemilia in She Has My Face
[at] BeautInside when I saw her she appeared to me as a shadow, sometimes I wonder if I ever saw her face and maybe over time I suppressed the memory, I was terrified. As soon as she disappeared into the bathroom I would wake my mom up and beg her to hold me while I slept. My niece wasn't afraid, she seemed angry actually. Like she couldn't believe this girl had the audacity to look like me. I don't think she knows that what she's seeing are spirits. No one has ever talked to her about them and she's never even seen a ghost on tv. When she sees something bad she says it's a monster and the others she thinks are just people that no one else sees.
sunshinemilia in She Has My Face
[at] anno_domini that's exactly how my dad feels. I understand where that feeling and thought process comes from as those exact thoughts are always in the back of my head. My fear is finally allowing her to enter our lives in some way and then accidentally letting something else in.
Jaxxxanator in Old Home
Thankfully the house seems to be "friendly" overall with the happenings going on, though it is a bit concerning how an entity is responding to the baby. Perhaps cleanisng or getting the house blessed could ease the problem? My concern is that with time it will manifest physically in different ways and perhaps be harmful, particularly to the baby's energy as he grows up.
BeautInside in She Has My Face
Hi Anno_Domini,

Those are interesting points, but for what I can understand "fake Emmy" has been around for several years and hasn't create any havoc, which in my opinion doesn't match with any demon's behaviour (unless this is a very patient one). On the contrary, her interactions with Emilia and her family seem to me very benevolent. She didn't try to scare anyone, she just seems lost and out of place. It's natural to fear what we don't know, and what we don't understand, so being afraid of any interaction looks natural to me. Especially, if someone had a negative experience in the past.

It looks like "fake Emily" is trying to belong, if she really was Emilia's twin she should actually belong to that family, she probably feels it too... She didn't make it to this realm, even though she was a still-born, an inoccent soul, it's still a soul. Maybe she didn't cross to the other side because she couldn't let go that sense of belonging, and "grew up" mimicking Emily's growth.

You pointed out some interesting questions undoubtedly, but for me it lacks the havoc a demon is due to cause. In so many years, that entity has shown nothing but a benevolent behaviour. I know they can be deceiving, but somehow over years it would have to lose its patience. πŸ˜‰

[at] Sunshinemilia, I'd trully appreciate if you could reply to the following questions:
1) when you first saw "fake Emmy", do you remember the feeling it gave you? Fear, confusion, sadness...?
2) When your niece told you about her, did she look scared?

Usually the feeling it gives is half way to understand the nature of the entity. But this is just my opinion. 😊

Looking forward to hear from you. ❀

Anno_Domini

Those are some interesting points though, - do you think a demon would be fine wearing a cross or any other religious symbol as part of their attire?

As for using speech as a means of communication, it has been discussed that often spirits 'talk' through telepathy, hence skipping the need of learning to talk as a living child would.

In my opinion, some spirits are unable to leave this realm either because the person isn't aware of their own death or because they are afraid of what might be waiting for them at the other side.
Hi ColdSoul,

I was inspired by your story and shared a summary of it in my channel.
Thank you for sharing!
Anno_Domini in She Has My Face
Hi sunshinemilia,

I tend to take the side of your family on this, that interaction with "it" should not be sought nor encouraged.

I do not believe that "spirits" of people come / stay back in our realm, but let's say that they do.

1. Who has been clothing her? Where did she get her clothes from like the cross she was wearing?

2. Why does she age in tandem with you? Usually you read in stories that such "spirits" stay the age that the pass on, so how does she age in tandem?

3. Who taught her how to talk? I don't think any child has learnt to talk on their own. Ever. Yet she talked to your brother.

4. From your account, you seem to be the target of its attention. It first appeared to you when you were 6, and then to others around you when you didn't acknowledge its presence.

I do not believe that ghost of the deceased stay in our realm. This is a demon which wants to make contact with you, and I would advise against it (pls see my profile for my thoughts). This is probably a demon who is using the excuse of your vanishing twin (as lady-glow mentioned) to interact with you or your family. Instead, if you are religious, rebuke it in the Lord's name. If you're not your best option would be to seek help from your local pastor or priest, especially if the activity escalates.
Hi MrsRamsay,

Vertical / horizontal & diagonal lines across your screen can occur due to framerate mismatches. IIRC back in the old days the frame rates for home videos weere about 25-30 frames per second (fps). Modern phone cameras go all the way up to 60 fps, maybe more. When you are taking a video of a panning scene, these frames display lines due to the different frequencies of the TV and the mobile phone that is capturing the video. There may be further visual artifacts depending on whether your tape was recorded in PAL or NTSC format. Also videos taken at different times will display different artifacts because the mismatches will occur on different frames (due to the different times you start your phone's video.

To summarise, I think that what you have witnessed is natural phenomena, and the rest of it is pareidolia, where our brains try to make sense of random patterns. I'm glad that your family has old video to remember him by.

Hi Gh0st_Knight,

Many programmers include "Easter Eggs" into their code, sort of like a secret way to sign off. You could have inadvertently discovered one. No biggie.

Hi there!

Chilling story! Hopefully George has found his head already...


My name is Erick YÑñez, I'm a reporter from Mexico City. I work for a podcast produced by the WNYC (New York's Public Radio) called Spooked, which is also a spinoff from the award winning show 'Snap Judgement'. It's a show about paranormal experiences in the voices of the people who lived them. This is the link of the show:
Https://spookedpodcast.org

I'm wondering; would you be interested to chat with me via skype, hangouts or phone so I can get to know the details of the story and evaluate if it's a good fit for our third season?

Thanks in advance!
lady-glow in She Has My Face
sunshinemilia - thanks for replying and for the additional information.

I'm not surprised if your father and siblings are afraid of their abilities, not all people with sensitivity to the paranormal are ready to embrace their skills and to make them part of their daily life. Unfortunately for them, spirits will always feel attracted to them 'thinking' that they can help them with they unresolved issues.

If your family decide never to establish contact with the paranormal, I hope they learn to protect themselves from the draining effects of those spirits.

Since it seems like your family wouldn't come together to talk to your sister, perhaps your mother and you can talk to her even if you can't see her.

Good luck and keep us posted.
Bibliothecarius in She Has My Face
Greetings, again, sunshinemilia.

I read your response to lady-glow; it has me somewhat concerned.

I feel sorry for your dad, as "his abilities have scared him since he was young." I know what that can feel like. I have been scared by one of my own abilities as recently as four years ago; however, disliking some of the sensations and data my mind can discover through whatever bizarre process it uses doesn't mean I can ignore the entirety of my brain. I embrace the fear & the uncertainty because *sometimes* they're simply a part of getting the insights and the knowledge that is revealed to me.

Yes, there are scary spirits and entities at work in the world; however, an overwhelming number of spiritual entities are either good or completely indifferent. Good spirits (whether they are angels, guardians, guides, elementals, pranksters, or protective loved ones) and indifferent ones (usually residual hauntings that are engrossed in tasks or behaviors from their lifetime, or perhaps sentient entities that are simply doing their own thing and really can't be bothered with living people) make up the bulk of haunting phenomena.

Certainly, living people may react with shock or fear to any entity, but that's the reaction of the living person to unexpected or inexplicable circumstances; that's *not* the fault of the spirit.

When people "shut off" their natural gifts, that can create a spiritual pressure, like water held back by a dam. If more that one family member is suppressing their psychic abilities, and they're sharing a house, that's a whole heck of a lot of unused energy just sitting there. No wonder "things follow and feed off of members of my family and their energy." It's entirely possible that "fake Emmy" is simply using a portion of that untapped potential to manifest herself as she believes herself (with some justification) to be a part of the family.

Honestly, the policy of ignoring "fake Emmy" to the point of iron-clad resistance to acknowledging her at all probably *should* have generated angry & negative behavior. The fact that the worst thing she's done is wake people up when she's lonely would indicate that she is --as you suggested--"innocent."

When it comes to discovering your twin's identity, your dad "begged me not to, because when you seek something out you might actually find it." This doesn't mean that ignoring it will make it go away; finding out what is going on is the reason some of us have these gifts in the first place. I believe that, given sufficient time and evidence, science will be able to discern the nature of these "gifts." (I suspect that it's something to do with the human brain's electrical energy interacting with quantum fields to a greater or a lesser degree, but that's *only* a theory.) If your family is religious in some way --I infer this from your belief in Heaven-- then ignoring these gifts is just squandering the very tools that can be used to determine what is happening and why.

I apologize if this seemed a bit "preachy" (from an agnostic, no less!), but it is a self-defeating exercise to ignore the tools available while waiting for the problem to solve itself.

Take care.

Sincere best wishes,
Biblio.
lady-glow in Glowing Blue Eyes
Without additional information, it is difficult to know what this entity could have been, though the fact that you felt it was a dog and that it wasn't there for you makes me wonder if it was a departed family pet still following its usual routine sleeping by its masters' side.

Did you ever discuss this experience with your friends? Perhaps they have encounter this presence and know what it is.

Looking forward to read more of your experiences.

[at] Fuchsia - oh really I never went back after my ojt hahaha

[at] Majarlika012 - I was not aware of the said shoot out but a friend of mine shared a lot of ghost exp inside STI COLLEGE building 😨 😨
I think I can crop the photo so it doesn't reveal my kids (they would probably not want to see themselves on a paranormal website, no offense, YGS!) I'll try to submit a couple. I don't really think the items that came off the shelves were significant, just maybe the time and place (and my quiet surroundings) were right. You know they say that time between sleep and wake is right for discerning "things" and perhaps that zombie way moms feel when they've already been to the store three times that week and now here they are again and just, ZZZZZ ZZZZ... Might be one of those between sleep/waking moments! I had not thought of that. Other paranormal times for me have been when I am painting a room, concentrating on writing (I'm a former columnist), at Civil War battlefields, at an ATM machine (the night my husband died) and through other, unexpected media type situations. I hope I'll be able to write some more down. I've thought about writing a book! But I'm most interested to hear what people here think. They/you seem to know much more about these things. Thank you for your sympathies...I've had some wonderful people in my life and miss them thoroughly, but I've always somehow known they are with me at various times. I feel that way about ancestors as well (I'm a huge Ancestry nut).

Thank you so much for your insight. I don't believe she mimics my clothes, always a dress of some sort. I suppose my niece must have spoken to her and realized she was not speaking to me. She is very calm about the things she sees. My parents have not given her a name, my dad tries to pretend she doesn't exist when he can (his abilities have scared him since he was young and that's how he copes). Everyone (except my niece) is afraid of their abilities like my father so every experience they have with spirits is unwanted and they refuse to seek them or engage contact with them. A group effort to help her is sort of impossible, my father and my brothers and sister believe that speaking to her/them is the worst thing you can do, that by engaging it will make the activity worse and more frequent. My mother and I have always been curious as to what would keep her here? We believe in a heaven and we don't understand why an unborn baby that is innocent would still be tethered to this earth?
Bibliothecarius in Not Your Average Ghost
Greetings, Gh0st Knight.

I will not pretend to have a great understanding of the technology in modern video gaming. When I was a teen, I only had the NES, but I did play the original Resident Evil on my friend's better system. Of course, it's been so long that I don't remember what his system was; however, I do recall being impressed that Resident Evil was one of the games that gets inside your head while you are playing it.

Should I presume that this took place in the same home as your other experiences, or had you moved house? In "Ghostly Voice Saying My Brother's Name" (story=26523) you note "my mom has said whenever she was alone in the room she felt eyes upon her" and in "Little Girl's Voice Comforting Me" (story=26555) you stated that "I suddenly heard a voice of a young girl either a child or someone youthful, crystal clear and real as day say my name." Whatever is in that house, or looking after your family, knows your name and your brother's name; primarily, it has interacted with you both on a caring, friendly basis.

If your narrative of events is accurate (I'm rather skeptical of *technology* to begin with), I do have a potential explanation of *how* the image manifested. Spiritual energy has been documented interfering with lights, heat, and other sources of energy. Each pixel on the screen is, in effect, a miniature light source following the instructions from the console; if this is the same haunting phenomenon in your home, there's a chance that it interfered with the pixels on the screen to generate the image of reaching arms in much the same manner as you might use one hand to make shadow-puppets with a torch projecting a light on a wall.

In this case, the "hand" would need to rest on -or in- the image to dim sufficient pixels to create the shadowy image, but this is only my conjecture into *how* such a thing may be accomplished; I can only hazard a guess that the entity overheard your conversation and decided to join in by playing a prank.

Best,
Biblio.
MrsRizzo2429 in The "boogieman"

I am so sorry for your loss. Hope you find a way to celebrate her life and love and find peace in knowing that she will never stop loving you or watching over you. Moms are such a blessing, always. Godspeed, my friend!. ❀ ❀
Thank you for your replies. To those that have suggested, I have considered getting a symbol of protection as well as attempting to bless the house in which it first happened. Oddly enough there was already a small bottle of holy water in one of the cabinets from a previous tenant, go figure. I also used salt along doorways and entrances for awhile after just because I was willing to try anything.

As far as why I was drawn to it, I have always loved the image and when I eventually dove deeper into its origins I felt that it was a great illustration of what it means to be human, being bound by the moon and stars, the struggle of self versus those around me, a sort of yin yang if you will. Also the expression in the eyes has always hit me for some reason.

" in one hand it holds the sun, in the other the moon, joined to it by chains. This virile head is a beautiful allegory which attributes to thought alone, the first and creative cause. The head here represents mind, and the female body matter. The stars, bound to the human form and directed by that nature of which intelligence is the head, have also a sublime significance."

Sure it may come off a little silly to others and I can't deny that there may have been some act of rebellion going on. I do admire the 7 tenets of the church of satanism but have never previously dabbled in the occult. I do agree that it's possible that the negative imagery could invite evil whether I asked for it or not, Certainly a bit naive on my part if so but I'm hoping I'm not damned for eternity for it.

Hi SunshineEmilia,

Please allow me to quote the following part ""He said a girl that looked exactly like me, he thought it was me, shook him awake saying TJ wake up! Please wake up! TJ!" He was angry of course and yelled at her "get out of my room!" He said "I" got sad and slowly walked up the stairs...". If this was a dark entity it would get angry, vengeful or both, instead of sad.

It breaks my heart just to think that someone can be that lonely, I am very sorry for your mother's loss but it seems a loss for all of your close family too... This might be somethig you weren't counting on, but there's something that needs to be done. Biblio is right, you should address your twin, give her own name, treat her as family and try to explain what happened o her and why not everyone is capable of aknowledge her. I don't think ignoring her is the best decision, she's lonely and that attitude towards someone, even for a wondering soul, could be a nightmare.

Please take care and keep us posted. ❀

MrsRamsay,
I meant to say earlier that I'm sorry to hear that you've lost so many loved ones.
I also had unexplainable occurrences at my wedding. I'd love to see your pictures, but understand if you don't want to share them for privacy reasons. That would be a wonderful story for this site. It's very cute that her veil landed in her sister's fiance's lap... A sign of approval maybe? ❀ 😁
I was thinking about the specific food at the store that moves on you... Are these anyone's favorite foods? They could be showing you they're with you by picking things they like, maybe?
Great questions, WL. Yes, I have felt things both at home and elsewhere. Once at home, I know this will sound weird, I was writing at my computer, bright daylight, and the ceiling fan in the adjacent living room started making some noise... Sort of a fluttering that it has never made before or since. It was enough that I stopped what I was doing to stare at it and the whole room felt weird. At my eldest daughter's wedding, which was held outdoors on a perfectly still evening, I noticed the birds stopped singing and things got extremely quiet. The minister had been droning just a bit about something and the moment was just before the vows were going to be said. I'm sitting in the front row and sort of above the bride and groom...well, it wasn't really a mist, but something different in the air that I felt caused the birds to stop singing. Then the bride's veil blew way up and seemed to hang in the air before blowing completely off and landing in the lap of her sister's soon-to-be fiance. The part I need to tell is, my daughter and I had a slight disagreement over wearing the veil. She did not want one, but I thought her dress and the occasion really called for one. At the moment that veil popped up, all I could think was... My mom, her grandmother (who spoiled her like crazy before passing away in 2013) would be saying, "Look, here, she wore the veil down the aisle for you and now we can just take it off!" Smething else: while getting hair and makeup done, the bridesmaids wee drinking champagne. At some point, a champagne glass fell over on the nightstand where no one was near. The girls sort of laughed about it and continued... Probably a half hour later, I was waiting my turn for makeup and all of a sudden the same champagne glass goes flying off the nightstand (they had stood it up in the middle, making sure it wouldn't fall again). It shattered on the floor and a bridesmaid and I looked at each other and went, "Whoa, did you see that?" Then another one matter of factly brings a broom and cleans it up, and all go on their merry way to the ceremony. I swear, in the professional wedding photos we have multiple shots (second by second) of the bride's veil, and I can see multiple paranormal-looking faces... My mom IN the veil and my late husband in the air. I've pointed it out to family, and they do see it but they don't really THINK about it like I do. Sorry again for the length, but I DO feel them a lot. I just feel sometimes that it's because I really want to. But we are not supposed to, so I think the way it works is the idea of it becomes fuzzy for some people and they forget, while others of us can't seem to let it go.

Did you ever go grocery shopping with one of your deceased loved ones a lot? My grandma was great at picking out fruit, and I wouldn't be surprised if she rolled the right peaches at me someday! ❀
Do you ever feel an energy around you before it happens? Maybe the energy of the land helps your loved ones connect with you easier at the store. Or perhaps you're experiencing things at home as well, but in a house with other people around, you don't notice things like you do when you're alone at the store?
Bibliothecarius in She Has My Face
Greetings, sunshinemilia; welcome to YGS.

I'd like to quote one of lady-glow's points and build upon it: "Based on your narrative, it doesn't seem like your twin means any harm to anyone..." From your description, I suspect that the entity is your deceased twin; those who can see her have limited, almost one-sided interactions with her. My concern is that your brother's (understandable) comments were of outright rejection.

Though your young cousin is able to distinguish between you and "the fake Emmy," ignoring her completely may be the wrong approach, here. I think that "the fake Emmy," more than anything, feels lonely.

She doesn't even have her own identity as an individual; she has to "borrow" your name and be in places that you *could* be -within reason- but not while you're there. This brings us to another of lady-glow's salient questions: "Have your parents given a name to their daughter after learning of her existence?" Perhaps it would be good for your whole family to sit down and try to talk to her. As several family members apparently have parapsychological gifts, they could simply ask her to join you all; now that you all know she is there, there's no reason for her to be shy, nor for her to hide.

While it is reasonable to fear the unknown, your concern that "I am afraid she is not who we assume her to be" is not justified by the details you have provided here. She has had ample opportunity to scare, assault, and bewilder your family members, yet she has done *only* the third of these. She attended your young cousin's birthday party, for goodness' sake! That's not an evil entity, merely a lonely one.

Please, let us know how you are proceeding with this unusual circumstance.

Best,
Biblio.
