I think you were lucky to have had the chance to see her. It seems that spirit likes small children and will appear to them more often than older adults. She must have realized she no longer belonged on this plane and went to heaven. ❤
Maybe try and calm yourself as much as possible, turn around facing him and just tell him "I'm not afraid of you anymore!" Some of these dark entities feed on fear. I don't understand WHO the "hat man" is? Thank you for sharing, healing prayers sent your way.
Cherubim in Extra Child In Bed
Maybe the reason you weren't scared is because you knew each other in another life, and that's why the "child" felt safe there. Yes, I don't believe the dead and the living are meant to live together either. Strange how they can find and see us, even stranger is the way you've described the child. Very scary! 😲
I'm so glad your son is okay. How can any of us really be sure what these encounters mean? I've been followed from home to home by "something" I am still trying to understand. I used to think all "ghosts" were evil too, but maybe they are not. In any case I'm with you in regards to prayer. I'll keep praying that you, me, and everyone else on this site stays safe! ❤

I'm interested to hear other's opinions, because this is a serious situation. I'm trying to throw out what I think, but I'm not an expert. I just want to help.
I hope you find your answers, Sinisterserpent. I wish you the best! ❤
WisconsinLady in The Red Eyed Shadow
I'm glad you've overcome/dealt with feelings from the past. I'm very happy to hear that.
My belief: If the activity continues and there isn't anymore strong negative emotion fueling activity, I would think it's an entity that was already there. Once negative emotions have been resolved, anything attracted to you, or created by those emotions, should no longer have fuel to exist (or reside within your house). Activity created by your energy would disappear and attracted spirits would move on to somewhere else. Puberty isn't an issue anymore, so that also makes me believe it's a separate entity.
In my opinion, some past activity might have been caused by puberty or emotions, but that activity would be things you arent experiencing anymore. Continued activity would be caused by an entirely separate entity. Perhaps related to the death in your house in some way.
Sinisterserpent in The Red Eyed Shadow
Wisconsinlady those feeling have long since been dealt with I must admit though I'm having a hard time firguring out if we some how made this thing or if it was attracted to me because of what happened when I was 8 or if it was already there
RSAChick in Extra Child In Bed
Hi Skade, your username means 'damage', in my language, Afrikaans.
I was interested to see it means the same in Swedish! What meaning did you have in mind when choosing the username? I am sure it could have more than one meaning. Like date - today's date or the fruit.

Your story is very creepy, I'm amazed you could keep so calm.

The blackout curtains seem great to keep out light, but might be too much sensory deprivation for me to handle 😆
WisconsinLady in The Red Eyed Shadow
Sinisterserpent,
I think that negativity could definitely fuel activity.

Perhaps you and your family should look into reiki. At least have one reiki session on yourself to balance/reset your energy. Or try some meditation. I personally like simple mindfulness meditation techniques.

Trying to create positive energy might help the situation a lot.

Also, talking to a therapist about your feelings helps release negative energy. I find therapy to be very helpful in that regard. Just having someone else to "vent" to helps heal negativity.

These are all just suggestions, of course. I hope they're helpful, though. ❤

Thank you so much for this great information! Great gran passed away in March, which doesn't really line up for monarchs. Sometimes I see loads of white butterflies and I'm not sure what kind they are.
It'd be really cool if there was some sort of scientific explanation for this!
Sinisterserpent in The Red Eyed Shadow
I do have a question I resented my sister growing up because of how differently our parents treated us could that have something to do with all this?
Hey! I'm TigerFeet's Daughter! Charlie has been in my life since I can remember and as the youngest daughter in the family, I look forward to having him in my life for years to come.

Charlie loves anything to do with electronics and on multiple occasions, he has moved my chargers, computer mouse etc. He's a part of this family and honestly cannot imagine life without him around, even if he gets annoying sometimes ❤
Sinisterserpent in The Red Eyed Shadow
I began puberty at around 11 and to be honest yes I was in emotion pain do to something happening when I was 8 please do not ask for details about that and yes I began having dream about a best I can describe as a living darkness chasing me down a hallway and I would wake up soaked in sweat the daughter of the previous owner was found in the hall bath and the cup was found in the sink cabinent
JuggaloJohn (guest) in My Eyes Don't Lie
I don't believe these are residual hauntings nor do I believe they're violent. I believe that I am sensitive and it runs in the family too. My aunt who's very close to me is a novice ghost hunter and we exchange our encounters. There was a tarot card reader that passed on my mother's side, we're Hungarian in ethnicity, which may have significance? Lol. I also had what I felt as evil experience as well which I brushed off. 🤔 🤔
JuggaloJohn (guest) in My Eyes Don't Lie
I want to thank everyone for their comments so far. The activity continues on a normal level. It seems like the ghosts are different in nature, not a single entity. I used the flashlight contact was used one evening during a storm that knocked out the power. My mother and I was in the living room, my brother was in his bedroom and my dad was in the kitchen. Sitting in the living room by candlelight I took my mini maglite flashlight and twisted it until the light just goes out (I saw this first on "Ghost Hunters"). I asked if anyone was here with us and to turn the flashlight on, please. It went on. I politely asked to turn it off, it went off, all on command. I continued to ask yes and no questions by having them either turn it off or on. The key is being polite by saying "please" and "thank you". You can use any twist on/off flashlight for this. One unexplained sighting I wanted to mention; one day I saw a ball of light go into a photo of my mom's wedding of her dad and of herself. My grandfather has passed, this is the ghost I've mentioned in my story. Was it him? I don't get scared so easy anymore. I remind myself that these were once people and I try to treat them with respect.
I've had a number of experiences with my animals who have passed on and revisited. I always say I'll write the story but never get down to it.

This little dog probably didn't have all the necessary vaccinations. Very sad 😟

SoniaMary That's good to hear you keep it away from your son I did exactly that with my own children and I do understand what you are going through... It has happen to me many times throughout my life. In one of your stories I do believe you'd experienced what they refer to as the Old Hag Syndrome, a wrinkly grey old ugly woman with red eyes that basically scares the life out of you?

I met one of these entities in the Astral realm back in 1985 pretty much like in that movie insidious only more terrifying because the account seemed to be a physical one that had me fooled into believing I was awake.

What was really important in the midst of that account back in 1985 and what I learnt whilst under attack by what appeared to be an ugly old bad 'demon' was to let go of the fear and surrender myself into believing it wasn't real... And lucky for me it worked.

Then came round two and the same deal again, hmm? Letting go of fear?...These accounts are horrifying Sonia and I do feel some empathy for what you are going through. However my own experiences have taught me a great deal and I'm actually appreciative of them all, including the dozens of Sleep Paralysis accounts I have had over the years, why?

Because I hope people like yourself will understand you are not alone or crazy and there is an explanation as to why these accounts take place. (YOU CAN CONTROL THEM) The Old Hag syndrome is basically a down load built into the fabric of the universe for anyone to pull into their own space should certain circumstances arise... Astral realm, half asleep, drugs etc... I don't actually believe it is real in the sense of returning to hell or what ever.

I saw her only last year hovering above my wife in our bed around early morning... I won't repeat what I said however it started with F and finished with F. These accounts still rattle me at times but I don't lose any sleep over them, because without fear they ain't got nothing on you.

If you believe in demons they'll believe in you, if you really want to shut down these experiences and try something different you have to stop smoking pot... Maybe take a look at your diet and exercise if you feel that's necessary... Read a book before bed, turn your computer on and play 10 hours of soft rain music when you go to bed so you can focus on the music rather than anything else.

Regards Daz
Srinivas - I realise that when your grandfather lit the beedi the ghost started cursing him. My question relates to that; what were the goat's words?

Regards, Melda
Srinivas108 - I have to agree that the timing is a bit off. Definitely not early 70's but I can accept that you got the dates wrong.

The goat became so heavy that your grandfather dropped it. I must admit I wouldn't have slaughtered that goat either, given the circumstances. You say your grandfather dropped the goat and it started cursing him. What did it say?

Regards, Melda

Sinisterserpent and Rookdygin,
Thank you for sharing your story, Sinisterserpent. I'm sorry you've dealt with such horrible events throughout your life. I mean these next questions respectfully, and I'm not negatively blaming you for anything...
Instead of attracting the cowboy, could it be possible that the cowboy entity was created from the poltergeist energy? Initially, it was only manifested in dreams, but now enough energy has been put into it over time that it is becoming it's own entity. Because your sister experienced many paranormal events and the cowboy first began in your sister's dreams, do you think she is also creating the poltergeist activity? Both of you together could be creating the activity, which created the severity of your situation. What do you think, Rookdygin?

Also, "Anytime I'd walk from my room to the kitchen I'd get this feeling like my instincts saying run somethings behind you. Also, I kept a feeling of nausea anytime I was in the hall bathroom." could be caused by residual energy. The "run instinct" is something I feel on the stairs at my parents' place. I believe it to be residual, since it's a heavily trafficked area.
Also, I wonder if there's a hidden meaning to the sink cabinet. Like there's an entity trying to get you focused on that area? Or if the rat poison was kept there and/or the girl died there, maybe there is energy at that location that better allows human generated poltergeist activity to manifest there instead of other locations. That's a theory, of course.

These are all just ideas that I hope might be helpful. I mean only respect and wish you and your family the best. Thanks again for sharing. ❤
rookdygin in The Red Eyed Shadow
Ah, ok... Then I have to ask a kind of delicate question, I am going on my 'gut instincts' with this because of what I 'pick up on' when I read over your experiences...

You describe...

"My family and I began hearing noises. This was a fairly old home built in the early to late '60s. We assumed it was an animal so my father called an exterminator. The exterminator said there's no vermin in there, not even a nook or cranny they could get in through.

The noises continued.

After that things escalated. Things would disappear only to reappear in the hall bath in the sink cabinet. Needless to say, my parents blamed us and they seemed to change. They were both very loving but now they'd fight over the smaller details.

My little sister began hearing growling in her bedroom and what sounded like pacing at night. I began hearing knocking on my window at night. Not a frenzied knock, more like a steady "let me in" knock. I assumed it was other kids pranking me.

One night I was in a foul mood, can't remember why exactly, but for the first time I opened the curtains and no one was there. It takes two seconds to get to my window from my bed. I was shocked, to say the least. I told my parents and they said I was imagining things.

Things got worse after that. My sister would wake up screaming that a shadow was after her. My parents passed it off as a normal nightmare. She still has that nightmare to this day."

Now here is my question...

Did you start puberty at an early age (between 10-11 years old)?

Or perhaps this is a better question...

Did most of the experiences happen when you were experiencing extream emotions?

If the answer is Yes to either of these questions (or perhaps both) then there is a chance your experiences were due to poltergeist activity... Generated by your physical/emotional state... The energy released as this happened, in turn, could have attracted the 'cowboy' entity you have described.

Just sageing works only to a point, and like any other method must be repeated often in order to be effective.

As for the bite marks you describe were BOTH of you having dreams of being chased and bitten by someone or something... These would have been really vivid dreams that seemed real until you startled awake and realized you had been dreaming.

Details, details, details... Anything you can remember or may have written down concerning these experiences could hold the answer as to 'WHAT' may have been happening.

I do not feel your Mother and Sister need to move. At least not based on the experiences you have shared with us so far.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Respectfully,

Rook
Cherubim in The Hissing Tiger
They are smaller rocks. Yes it would be hard to miss it since it's a very small area. There were unresolved feelings between us. I've done my best to let it all go. I don't want the negative energy. Thank you Maria.
SoniaMary0023 in The Pressure
[at] aussiedaz that is so much to process, I had to reread that. I don't tell my son about the paranormal or give him the idea of it. I try my best to make sure he doesn't know what I've been through with him present. If I see something going down the hall, see something pass my room, feel my bed shake, I don't react. Except one time... My fear got the best of me and I woke my son up from screaming when I saw an entity that was previously attached to me.

I do think about different dimensions, how everyone is made up of energy and so forth. It is very interesting.

I believe sometimes I feel what I think I feel but others definitely not. There's just so much in this universe that we all don't even know... I'm not intelligent or know everything, I just know what I've been through thank you for sharing that piece of information
Hello Majarlika012,

In the Filipino terms 'natuwa' which means they got amused because I was a mew kid, new face someone new they can play with stuff like that. (That's what my aunts and uncle told me)

Thank you for reading my story ❤
Hi Lealeigh,

In fact, she's not my cousin. My mom said, she was my grandmother whom I've never ever met nor my mom. She was my grandfather's sister who died way back before I was born. (I have no idea and my mom nor my dad too)

Thank you for reading my story. ❤
1P Diddy - I don't know your religious beliefs and how you deal with this sort of activity.

I would be hugely distressed if I had a child being harassed by a spirit. Is it a good spirit if it locks her up in a room? Perhaps the little spirit girl is possessive over your daughter.

I would suggest that you attempt to send this little entity off to where she belongs by employing the services of a knowledgeable religious person who has experience in this type of phenomenon.

Have you considered the fact that there might be more than one unwelcome visitor in your home?

Please consider taking action before the activities worsen.

Regards, Melda
Maggie - You are blessed with the ability to "know" things that others cannot foresee. Very few people are blessed with that ability.

Your mother-in-law, even in her unconscious state and according to medical people knocking at death's door, knew (perhaps through a spiritual guide) that you were the only one who could get the message across. It was obviously not her time to go. It might be soon, but not yet. She had to hang on for a reason.

Great experience and thanks for sharing 😊

Regards, Melda
Hey Larry I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or some form of oppression that's happening with your family.

I believe the house definitely needs a cleansing and most likely more than one done.

If any spirit is indeed the reason your wife's behaviour changed it will be thriving off any negative energy aswell.
Kirbyp- hi and thank you for reading. I am glad you enjoyed my story. No doubt the spirit didn't like changes and yes thankfully it wasn't physically harmful. Who knows what would have unfolded had we stayed any longer. I will say, that I felt much better once I moved out of that place!
Hello Maggie,

While receiving a new liver, I experienced something similar to your mother-in-law.

I contracted a post-operative infection and was in/out of a coma for three weeks. Your comment about the "people" telling you that she "wasn't aware" brought back memories of what I thought (at the time) were crazy dreams of people chasing and catching me to insert or pull out tubes from my body. I saw their faces, overheard their conversations and felt pain.

After recovering from the infection, I had ICU nurses tell me that I was looking a lot better than when I had all those tubes stuck in me a few weeks ago. These people looked vaguely familiar and it took me a while to recognize them as the people in my crazy dreams.

Interesting that I did remember one conversation between two people where one of them was asking if I should be given pain killers and the other was of the opinion that I "wasn't aware" of what was happening.

Well, for someone who "wasn't aware", it sure did hurt!

So, apologies for digressing, but I'm with you on this one and would beg to differ too. Keep following your feelings and when the time is right, please ask her if she remembers calling out for Jerry.

My thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery for your mother-in-law, and best wishes to the family and you.

Rex-T
Two brief comments, well, one's a question: can you update us now, in October? I just read this and think it's fascinating. I'd love to hear the latest.

Also, I'm not minimizing or diminishing and do agree with those who've said to be very cautious. But this WOULD make a great movie. I'd love to believe it's a friendly haunting, one along the lines of the Liberace piano. There's a huge trend towards thinking everything is evil or demonic, and just like everything else in the news or media today, it sucks all the energy away from the optimistic or hopeful or simply GOOD stories out there. I sure hope that by now, mid-October, you have a better idea of what's up with this and you can give us some good news! Most sincerely, Mrs. R.
I have experienced this a few times in my life, also when people close to me have passed. Cleaning my mom's house out after her death, I'd go over and turn the porch light off (which had been left on all night for security) only to find it on again when I took garbage out. Inside, lights would go on and off and I would smell her perfume (though it WAS her home and that made sense). One day after I'd turned off that front light, hours later I left and as I was pulling out of the drive, I remembered I had NOT turned them on, but they were shining SO BRIGHTLY, and I immediately thought it was her telling me she had it. I should mention that during her last five years, we would repeatedly tease her because she always had every darned light on (for security) but I secretly wondered if she hadn't seen something in the shadows after my step dad passed away... She was so adamant about the lights being on and would buy big cases of lightbulbs! Another time, I came home fro her house to find one of the lamps she'd "left me" turned on, when there was no way anyone had turned it on. It was her saying hello -- my first thought! I was never fearful.
What an amazing story. Your description of when you first got there -- "people seemed to be moving slowly" and in a blur... Shows that you were so in tune and focussed and you might have even sensed the spiritual nature of what was occurring. I have had this feeling before, always around the time a loved one passed away. And when you speak of the voice loudly in your head, I've experienced that as well. It's difficult to describe, right? I was drying my hair one morning when, inexplicably in my head, a voice said my neighbor's name. I immediately thought to myself, "That was weird, why would I even THINK of this man?" who was the husband of a friend, but himself BARELY an acquaintance. He was overseas in Iraq though, serving in the military, and had been gone a few months, should not have been in my thoughts AT ALL. Two days later I found out that he had died over there. At the funeral, in a long line to hug his family, I had the OVERWHELMING thought that I needed to tell his teenaged kids (who I did know pretty well) how proud their father was of them, each of them was standing in that line to greet friends and neighbors and doing such an amazing job. The whole 15 minutes in that line, this thought kept intruding on my quiet conversation with my own husband. "Tell them their father would be so proud of them right now." I just KNEW it was somehow my duty to do this. And I still feel to this day that the man who died somehow identified that I could help. Strangely. But I will never forget drying my hair that morning and his name just popping LOUDLY into my head!
Hello there Tigerfeet,

Biblio emailed me the link to your experience here in the hopes of setting your mind at ease, that yes there are others living with otherworldly critters. So, you're not bonkers, or maybe you are and so are the rest of us.

Actually the scissors fixation jumped out at me because I used to know a mentally unstable woman, now deceased, who was also fixated with scissors. We knew this about her but when she died her family found nearly a hundred (ninety something) pairs of scissors stashed around her home. No idea what that's about either!

I'm guessing Brownie for your Charlie. If you want to take it next level crazy town you could try leaving a food offering for him. They're said to love porridge, honey, butter, bread, tea and beer. Also said to usually take up residence in a cupboard, or similar nook. (Good place to leave an offering)
I started doing this but felt a right plonker and stopped. A friend does this without hesitation, his lives at the bottom of the garden. I blame the hedgehogs for the food disappearing, but he's sure it's a gnome of some sort.
As for my food offering experiment, the drink went down, but that could be natural evaporation. The bread broke up a bit around the edge. But that could have been mould forming, and it did go mouldy.

My feelings on offerings is that it's the thought that counts. I wouldn't put it past fae folk to appreciate a nice gesture.

Cool stuff, thanks for sharing.

Lealeigh,

Lol yesss very very good exercise!
It was ok when I wasn't exhausted after working all week.

He did initially think it was like a knock and run type of thing, but when he opened the front door and realized the screen door was still locked and in place, he was kind of scared. I wasn't of course, I knew what it was 😊.

It's just the energy was weird, so I have been keeping watch after that as far as around the house.

Thank you for reading!

Sincerely

Biblio,

Hmmm you know the whole thing about the spirit being able to reach the outside, wouldn't have thought that. But good point.

When the bang initially happened I was kind of shocked, sudden loud noises send my body into a weird state. So I told him to look out the window but don't open it. He opened it anyhow, and nothing. He went outside looked all over (I know horrible idea!) and still found nothing.

But the energy I felt when it happened was very heavy, nothing like I've felt before in the house. But it also could've been from my being shocked by that sudden loud noise.

Anyhow...
Thank you so much for reading and commenting! It's greatly appreciated

Sincerely

Lealeigh,

Thank you for reading and leaving such a sweet comment.
This was the first time actually dealing with a fur baby death. So this was especially hard for all of us. Although I don't think it will get any easier with any furry family member that I have or will have.
No she didn't suffer long, it was so fast it shocked all of us.

[at] rook the first set of time frame was from when I was ten or roughly 2005 I skipped to 2011 when I was 16 because that's when the more eventful activity began the only major thing between the times is my mother actually attacking my father with a pot I am currently 24 and my sister is 19
Hey Dar77
I really enjoyed your story. Like your title states,"where Time Stood Still". Sounds like whatever was in your house was resisting any changes you tried to make. Glad they weren't too malevolent, but with you and your partner arguing over nothing could have gotten much worse. Thanks for sharing that experience.
I apologize to everyone for being gone for so long. I had submitted my follow up story to Dark Angel, because that wasn't the end of my encounter, only the beginning actually. It was over the span of 3 years so I tried submitting it in sections but it kept getting sent back to me so I got kind of frustrated but I need to tell it and get it off my chest so I can move on. So I will be submitting it in its entirety soon. Again sorry I was missing in action for so long.

Here is something to try...

Rook's Cleansing and Shielding Method (as used by myself and many other members of this site)...

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it expanding...it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

Question...what is the time frame between the first set of experiences you describe and your 'time jump'?

Respectfully,

Rook
rookdygin in Walking In The Dark
Sorry, life happened and I am just now finding time to get back on site.

To answer your question about the negativity, Yes its possible a residual amount attached itself to you and still remains with you. I am 'pasteing' a method I use for myself, my family and my home. Might I suggest that you use the shielding technique for yourself AFTER you 'cleanse' your energy.

Step one, go outside, someplace you find relaxing, someplace you can take off your shoes and do just that. Walkabout barefoot for a few minutes take a few deep breaths then stop, calm your thoughts then visualize any and all negative energy draining out of you through your feet and into the earth (worry not Mother Earth can handle this). When you feel relaxed and devoid of the negative energy visualize positive entering your body by the top of your head. See it fill you and once you are completely 'full' picture it radiating outwards forming a shield. I detailed this here because the 'cleansing' I use and have copied from my profile is more for a house or apartment.

Hi Haven sorry I have been off of here for quite a while. You had asked me if that Angel was new and no it was pretty old. It only had power via an electrical cord. I would say it was at least 30 to 40 years old. Thanks for commenting.

Good Day,
Near by radio transmissions can turn a touch lamp on and off as my wife can attest. I do radio as a hobby and had this happen. After the lamp broke I had no further troubles. I don't want to burst anyone's bubble but this is very possible.

Perhaps the word "Babayan" is "Babaylan"? Here's where I found it:

Https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babaylan

From Wikipedia: "[They] were shamans of the various ethnic groups of the pre-colonial Philippine islands. These shamans specialized in communicating, appeasing, or harnessing the spirits of the dead and the spirits of nature. They were almost always women..."

Perhaps your daughter is a medium, healer, or etc? If this entity is bad, they may not want her to get rid of them. They may have tried to trick her into thinking they are friendly, but then became more aggressive.

Thank you for sharing your story. I hope you can find help and everything works out well for your family!

Answers? I'll offer you something to think about SM based on my own experience, research and a handful of facts alas my own theory as to why we experience the metaphysics the way we do, especially at night time when we kind of sink a little back into the arms of creation.

We are spiritual beings having a physical experience inside a thought based universe known by the scientific community as the Higgs field. Consciousness is very fundamental to our existence and to the building blocks of our reality we so magnificently create every day, it is also very powerful when it comes to all those other experiences that present us with the paranormal and frighten us half to death when we push those buttons through our own resources.

First of all, you are a consciousness conductor always in the centre of your own universe contributing to the building blocks of reality along with the collective senses of all other consciousness units. The universe is basically dreaming and you are it's dream integrated in such a divine way it can't just be a random event of nature or an accident in my own opinion?

Some pretty smart theoretical physicist believe our universe is a hologram, others believe we are inside a computer simulation created by a superior civilisation and others just call it a Matrix.

What ever it is, we are in it until our last breath... I tend to believe we are in a sub set inside another greater reality created from the spiritual realm of which is possibly the 4th or 5th dimension to experience the good, bad and ugly for own enlightenment and spiritual growth... After all, we are eternal beings connected via the source why not?

Where does this leave you?

There is a little gland in the back of your brain called the pineal gland that is basically responsible for taking us in and out of sleep. When people take or smoke drugs the chemicals in those products interact with this pineal gland of which can open you up to more than just the universe. As a consciousness conductor you can reach out to others in the spiritual realm however you can create your own physical nightmares where entity's of your own illusion can present themselves as separate units of consciousness.

Fear will play havoc on what you bring into your own universe. Try hard not to frighten your son, he needs to feel you are in control of all circumstances involving him.

I mean wow, that's a lot to deal with. Your poor little girl! I hope you're able to deal with the spirit so that no more harm comes to your daughter. I really wish you luck.

❤❤❤
This is such an interesting and inspiring story to hear, your mother in law fighting that hard to come back. I'm so glad she's okay!

And may I add to RCRuskin that Sex is also a metal state and a social construct that if we take away just because some one has passed, it almost dehumanis' them. Sex is not just physical.

Despite the 1st being rather creepy the 2nd incident definitely seemed a much kinder soul, as if they wanted your cousin to play with the toys so got them all out for him
WisconsinLady in The Shadow Under The Door
Great short story and welcome to YGS! Looks like the cleaning lady was right to ask you to accompany her.:)

I believe this could be paranormal, but I do have a theory about some "shadow under doors" experiences. If the floor or door frame/door is uneven, especially in older buildings, this can cause small changes in the amount of light coming in from under the door. If you move your head slightly, the changing light amounts look like shadow. I've experienced this. Sometimes it looks like everything is even until you study the floorboards, door, and door frame more closely. Just an idea.

I can't explain the aspects of the door not opening. You say it had no locks or latches? Could the old age of the frame or wood expansion from heat cause it to get stuck if a draft slammed the door shut?

Have others experienced this same thing? What have others experienced here?

Sorry for all the questions! Thanks for sharing your story!

HI,

Have you tried asking the caretaker about the history of that house? If yes, then what did he tells you? I was also curious, is your baby and the little girl you saw in your dreams look the same?
Hi,

Did something happen to your lola when she was little? Wy do you think she made herself appear to you as she was your age?

Did you still encounter her after that in any other occasions?
Hi again Maria 🤗

Black mold is some bad stuff! Thank goodness you got out of that place. I once had some neighbors that ended up having to move out of their home and leave ALL their belongings behind because of black mold.

You know how old people are set in their ways, I doubt that leaves them in the after life. I'm just glad I don't have to succumb to her ways anymore.

Although my ex husband and I did quarrel a lot in that house, I doubt it was the cause of our undoing. We had problems already and it seemed to feed on it. It was a disaster from the get go and better off that it ended, because since our divorce I found real love and have never been happier. Been with my current husband 14 years now and have known him since we were kids. So in that way it worked out for the best.

Thank you so much for giving your input, it means a lot to me and for your kind wishes. ❤
Lady-glow... That was a nice observation... I mean the time of incident... I don't know the exact year... It happened some where between 60s-70s or early 70s I guess... And they couldn't find any other goat or sheep... So my grandpa had to arrange other meal
I would very much like you to describe the Hat Man in a story on this site. I'm a little confused from your description in a comment and your profile about him being your guardian. I have never heard of a shadow man/Hat Man being a guardian. I'd appreciate more information about that. I mean no disrespect,
But I hope he isn't tricking you.

Welcome to YGS, btw! Thanks again for sharing your experience! ❤
I personally believe a lot of people feel energy on stairs because it's a frequently used pathway and holds residual energy. The stairs to the second floor at my parents' house seems to be like this. My sister and I fly up the stairs, because it feels like someone is chasing us up. I've seen this type of situation described on this site a few times.

Could this be what you're dealing with? Thank you for sharing your story! I hope you can get some help/advice from someone on this site. ❤
[at] RCRuskin, I always wondered the same thing about the gendering of spiritual beings. But I also have heard terms like male and female energy. I am not educated in those kind of belief systems or what those terms mean exactly so I won't comment on that. It seems pretty interesting though.
Bibliothecarius in New Home, New Happenings
Greetings, spiritwaiting.

As you can feel individuals' energies around you, are you able to identify if the front door handle was being jiggled from outside or from inside the house?

I'm only guessing here, but you've experienced an entity moving about within the house; it seemed to me that the entity might enjoy playing with the door handle, too. If it was outside your home and capable of reaching the door handle through the screen door, then there's no clearly-identifiable reason it wouldn't be able to pass through the door too.

Just a thought.

Best,
Biblio.
Hi, Maggie. This is an intense experience, whether ghostly or not. There are many physicians out there, but then there is The Physician. Whether it was your MiL or Him, you heard her voice, so... Whatever that is.

Aside: I often wonder why we refer to God and spirits as him/her. Sex, being male, female, or... Something else, is only a physical trait.
Hi MaggieMay_Not,

A harrowing experience. The way you expressed this story had me on edge and struck me directly in the heart.

You have a strong connection with your mother in law and I hope for the best for both of you, Maria ❤
Hi Dar77,

I used to experience perpetual flu symptoms in the house I lived in in North Georgia. We discovered we had black mold in the walls. That house was some kind of bad energy nexus in addition to the mold.

You're probably right about the elderly woman. She probably had her own ideas about the way she wanted her house. Intimidation.

I seem to recall from some of your past submissions that you and your husband split up. It makes me sad to think bad energy or intentions might have been the cause.

Best Wishes for the future, Maria ❤
Hi Eerie69,

Did you know that the girl was a cousin of yours because of the picture in the hall?

I think that I would have been startled by this experience too, if it had happened to me. Dolls give me the creeps too.

My grandmother used to buy me and my sister beautiful dolls when we were little. They always scared me because there eyes always looked like they were following you. I always kept them turned around facing the pillows.

Do you remember what happened to the doll that was found in your grandfather's room?

Thank you for sharing, Maria ❤
Hi Suzy2,

Did your mom get a chance to say goodbye to your father? Maybe he was trying to get you and your son's attention specifically.

Did the lamp belong to your parents before he died?

I'm very sorry for your loss. Best Wishes, Maria ❤
I find your following statement very disturbing:

"Sunday Sep., 8th I warned him that evil wanted him dead and his Grandmother"

Could you elaborate on that?

I think he was lucky to survive the accident if he wasn't wearing a seatbelt, "seatbelts save lives".
Has something bad happened to Grandma?

I cannot help but to wonder what you mean by your son being defiant and that being the reason why he got in the accident, - are the other persons in the car defiant too?

Personally, I have trouble accepting the idea of a revengeful God with little tolerance an as prone to temper tantrums as a two year old, though I think our actions will determine our fate. I cannot say if the accident was a punishment or if the girl was Satan or a guardian angel saying to your son that she would be watching over him, but I'm glad everyone survived that day.
I hope your son is doing well.

Thanks for sharing.
Lealeigh in The Soul Reappears
Hi Raul97ner,

Good story. It gave me the chills briefly when you said she looked troubled. As if she had the sudden unpleasant realization that she wasn't supposed to be there. It made her uncomfortable.

I'm sure that you're right that afterwards she went home and is at peace.

Thank you for sharing, Maria ❤
Hi spiritwaiting,

I had a house like that with the washer and dryer separated by two floors.🙄
It was when I lived in Massachusetts. Good exercise.

Now you have a mirror behind the sink. I can tell you, I'm the last person I want to look at when I'm washing the dishes. 😜

I wouldn't have wanted my husband to open the door if he couldn't see anyone out there either.

It would seem to me that one of two things could happen because of it:

One could be that something would feel invited to come inside. The other one could be that someone quite alive was hiding in the shadow hoping to play a prank or something worse.

I hope nothing else happens.

Best Wishes and good luck in your new home, Maria ❤
The cursing cursed goat or, is it the cursed cursing goat?

A bit confused about the mathematics, since not even 50 years have passed since 1970.

We're they able to get another goat or did the guest had to fast instead of feast?
Lealeigh in The Hissing Tiger
Hi Cherubim,

We meet again... 😜

Are the rocks outside gravel in your driveway? Or are they decorative larger rocks like people have around flower beds and what not?

Either way, I suppose it would be hard to miss a shining silver earring so many times.

Maybe your mother had strong unresolved feelings about your relationship with her and didn't get the chance to make peace with you. 😢

Thank you for sharing and good luck in the new house, Maria ❤
Lealeigh in Extra Child In Bed
Hi Skade,

It might have been a dream but who knows. If I had a dream like this, I would find it very upsetting. Only because I can't have children and the thought of a lost child's spirit looking for comfort is very sad to me.

If it was real, maybe the child felt the warmth and love that you have for your own children and wanted in on the security.

Thank you for sharing, Maria ❤
Lealeigh in Little Miss Tauri
Hi spiritwaiting,

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is very hard. When you can feel their love and trust in you it's devastating when you can't do anything to help them.

Tauri is a good name. It reminds me of the stars. I hope she didn't suffer long.

Best Wishes, Maria ❤
I'm so sorry for your loss. So hard to loose our furry babies. ❤
Hi CrazedArtist,

Good story. Have your friends lived there for many years? The spirit sounds like they were a protective person in life. Like a father or grandfather.

Maybe your friends didn't believe because they were more careful and didn't need saving and he never made himself known. 😜

I'm mostly kidding about that last statement.

Best Wishes, Maria ❤
MadhanKumarVT in Revenge Attempt
Ha ha ha this story couldn't be more fake. I mean, come on. 😆😆
That is quite interesting. Maybe it is a part of your brain that is not quite 'awake' yet? It happened to me a few years back but I 'heard' numbers. I woke up and just heard a man saying different numbers for about 5 minutes. I wasn't scared and I didn't even realize it was weird until I went to sleep and woke up again the next morning. I know I was awake because I was woken up by the sound of my sister who got home late. I could move though and I was lying on my side.
[at] ladyglow, i've always believed in the paranormal and this was my very first experience. You're right I need to do some research about any tragedy that has occurred lately, Anyway thank you so much for explaining it to me. Great pun BTW😜
Sarah, those were all the different ways I was thinking he could take what she said! Especially the idea that the passage of time is different after we pass.

Kest, thank you for sharing your story. Loved ones visiting us in our dreams fascinates me a lot. It's really interesting that the phone calls were in her dream. And thank you for the compliment!
lady-glow in The Soldiers' Wing
Jubeele - thanks for the information, I'll be waiting for them.
lady-glow, I did include the photos with my submission and I've sent a follow-up email to Martin and the mods. Sometimes it takes a while for the upload. The photos are quite innocuous to my eye, apart from being slightly blurry. But then I usually don't 'see' anything.

Also just found the photo of the plaque. It actually reads: 1939-1945 War Memorial Wing. The building was called Soldiers Memorial Hall. I'll see if I can host these photos from another site. Do bear with me, I'm not very tech-savvy and we all know that T-Rex is a dinosaur. 😉

Unless Martin can come to the rescue soon...? 🤔
Leanna

I may be of some use to you. I know a group of investigators from Alabama whom I could contact on your behalf about getting someone to cleanse the house for your daughter and the kids.

Welcome to YGS I hope at least 1 of us here can help you.

Thank

Goggzy
lady-glow in The Soldiers' Wing
Jubeele - would it be possible to see those pictures somewhere?

Best regards.
I am particularly interested in the man in black sighting. Do you have anything more to add to that incident?
Melda, so good to hear from you. 😘

It was interesting that you and a few others saw the shadows in the photos. The place certainly felt shadowed, even though it was brightly lit. There were places that felt extra cold, even in summer. During my last few weeks, I used the personal shielding that Rook taught us on his profile page, visualising a white light around me that the negativity can't touch. I was able to let much of the unpleasantness slide away from me. Knowing that friends were sending me good wishes and prayers helped greatly too.

I'm so relieved to be away from that place. Recently, we met a few people who are still working there and they said that the level of unhappiness has increased (shudder). 😟 Thank God and all the Powers that watch over us that that I left at the right time.
Hi, Cherubim! Thank you for the note. I'm not sure - it has always been solely electrical, and in various places I've lived. It seems to have quieted down some the past few months, although both porch lights went out with days of each other two weeks ago. One bulb was a year old, the other maybe six months old.

I hope you are on the mend! Don't you love when you wish something and it happens instantly? Wish life were like that all the time! ❤
Lady-glow
He is saying that earlier when a man passed by no dog barked at him... But at 2:45 when he saw the dogs were barking... If it is a human as per him they shouldn't bark... But they did... I think his doubt must be this
lady-glow in The Pressure
Thanks for replying.

Did smudging your place help to stop the activity for some time? You have to be persistent and perform it as many times as necessary even if the disturbances have stopped in order to prevent them from reoccurring.

I hope Rook's cleansing helps.
Keep us posted.
Thebeliever - in my opinion, there's not enough information in your narrative to know for sure what you saw that night.

Have you asked the neighbors if they saw the legs that night or if anyone has seen them before?
Are you aware if a tragic/violent death have happened on that street?
Do you know if one of the neighbors passed away on or around that day?

The fact that you only saw the lower part of the body doesn't mean that the spirit wasn't from a person, it is a know fact that some ghosts don't have enough energy to manifest as a whole body apparition.

As for the reason the dogs were barking, animals can sense spirits and know when something is off about people... Much more when it is only half a person!

You may not agree, but consider yourself lucky to have witnessed a proof that the unexplained exists and, other than scary, your experience was not only harmless, but armless and torsoless too.😜
Oh my! 😲 You and your wife are now living like the previous owners, that's just too much of a coincidence for me. Sounds like you need a cleansing done there. It's really active. Have you thought of moving? I lived in a haunted house for 3 years and was glad to move. We were just renters so it was easy to leave. The orb with the man in it would have me running! Best of luck and thank you for sharing. Keep us posted and I'm sending healing prayers your way. ❤
WOW! Sounds like something is there for sure. Do you know anything about the place? I've heard it said the veil between worlds is lifting. Bet your dad was surprised when the door slammed in his face like that! 😲
[at] ladyglow, i'm sorry for the confusion, yes the dogs did bark but at the shadowy figure and not at the man passing by earlier! I would really like an insight about this experience! Thank you.
[at] Cups Hi, sorry for the confusion, when the dogs were barking I saw the apparition. It was a shadowy figure, only the part below the torso. And yeah an hour ago I did see a man passing by but the dogs didn't bark at him. I've been really paranoid ever since!
Well it sounds like a type of poltergeist to me. I think that because you were saying an electrical problem would happen when arguing. I've personally had one incident. I had a serious injury and was in a wheelchair for about 5 months. It was late at night and I had just transferred myself out of the chair onto the couch. I suddenly realized I didn't turn off the lamp and was so bummed out because it was so hard for me to get up and down. My boyfriend was asleep and I wished so much someone could help me when the lamp just turned off?! 😲 It's never done that before or since then. I couldn't believe it.
Yes, I agree! 😲 If your brother appeared like that then I believe too that you were definitely being protected. I saw my brother who has since passed in a dream. ❤ Thank you for your encouraging story that loved ones DO see and watch over us. And thanks for making me think of my own brother.
Such a fascinating story. The old south does have such history! I'm form North Carolina and love to visit the graveyards out there. I believe something was protecting the graveyard too. Thank you for the links to your story and sharing it. ❤ How lucky that you had a chance to go back there.
Thank you Lealeigh. Yes, I'm not on a roller coaster of emotions like I was before. I instantly felt better when we left! I had so many crazy incidents in that house. 😆

Oh how I wished I could have chuckled to valkricry, I think I was in shock for days after discovering that. My boyfriend was never a "believer" but that house changed him too. Yeah, I'd have been really happy if what ever was there would have helped me clean more and been friendlier. 😜 Thank you all so much for taking time to read my story.

I know Cups...I'm STILL waiting for certain items to just be sitting on a table top somewhere?! Strange how things we really like will come up missing. 😐
Cherubim in Serenading Guitar
There are musicians in my family. I don't know a lot about the history of my ancestors like so many do. I was apprehensive the whole time this strange melody was being played. I'd love to know more about the song! I knew nothing of the neighborhood at that time in California. ❤ Thank you AugustaM for taking the time to read my story.
SoniaMary0023 in The Pressure
[at] lady-glow I have smudged my home using white sage and sweet grass. I don't think this is the entity that haunted me before, these ones I'm having currently are new to me.

About 20 minutes ago I also felt my bed dip, nothing else though...

I have encounters a lot and I try my best to ignore them. I hope the entity from my first encounter doesn't ever come back because that's what truly had me scared.
lady-glow in The Pressure
SoniaMarie - I'm sorry to hear what you are going through but, have you put into practice any of the advice given to you in your previous stories? If so, has it have any effect on your situation?

Have you cleansed your house at all? Is your friend from the previous story/es still helping you? Do you think this could be the 'white demon's' doing or something else?

Your last experienced was posted around one year ago, any feedback about what has happened during that time would be appreciated, I don't know if this means that the activity stopped after you put into practice some of the advice given to you, or if nothing else has happened in between and you didn't see the need to do anything or, even worse, if this is 'happening' only because Halloween is around the corner...

"Any input is greatly appreciated. I might not find answers but knowing someone is there reading and giving me advice helps a bunch."

In my opinion, what YOU do is more important than the advice given to you and any input FROM YOU to us will be greatly appreciated.
Oh, Val! I always love your writing style, and as usual this was fun to read. The door outline from another lifetime is intriguing for sure. 😨
Thanks for sharing, Cherubim! I just loved reading this... Can't wait for the next installment. I've encountered missing items turning up in odd places also... Still waiting to find a beloved paring knife! 🤔
