I need to be pretty snappy about this because I'm due to visit a house late afternoon proclaiming to be having a "haunting" problem.
I've debated with myself about whether to post here because although I'm on ATS every day reading I rarely post or comment. Now I'm approaching
limited time and am chastising myself for not getting this out here sooner.
Any advice, suggestions will be very much appreciated.
I am what is sometimes called a "sensitive" - and although a few people know this about me, it isn't really anything that makes my life any different.
I never use my sensitivities for much of anything other than for my own enhanced intuition about things/people/situations. I live a quiet life.
However, for some reason, people do tend to gravitate to me regarding their problems. Therefore, occasionally, I "help" people with some kind of
spiritual sort of questing, problems, or whatever. I never take money. There are some people around who seem to understand I'm a "sensitive".
Now I've been approached by a gal whom I've known for years (she was a student of mine once). She knows this about me although I've never had to
"help" her with anything. However recently she came to me (quite frantically) twice. The first time I sort of blew her off with not more than some
encouraging words and suggestions. Couple weeks later she came back. She was clearly further distraught. I knew I needed to help.
But I also don't know what exactly I am to do. I feel I am able to help but I don't really know how. I've never been asked for help with a (presumed)
house haunting -exactly.
Here's the situation.
My "friend" lives next door to a haunted house. The neighbor who bought the house is also my friend's friend (I don't know which came first -the house
purchase or the friendship). Let's call the neighbor Mollie.
Mollie and her husband bought the house (not sure exactly how long ago - maybe 2 years). Beautiful house. Lots of character and charm. Probably built
in the 20's. (I'll find out for sure when I visit later today).
The house has had several previous owners and renters. I don't know much about the previous owners. My friend tells me everybody knows it's haunted
-some people won't go near, nobody lives there very long, etc. (I will find out as much as I can later.)
However, 30 years ago a man shot himself there.
He shot himself because his wife and little 2-year old girl left him. By coincidence, his 2-year old later grew up in the same grade class as did my
friend. By coincidence, her name was also Mollie.
The other Mollie and her husband knew about the history when they bought it. They are stout Christians and had it "blessed" and smudged when they
Cut to the chase: Mollie and her husband have three very small children. Over the course of the couple years they've lived there many things have
happened ( don't know the full story yet). The oldest is 5. He has been the one who seems most affected by whatever the problems are. (Nightmares,
over-protectiveness of his younger siblings - won't let them in his room. Freaked out when Mollie (in attempt to ward off the evil) put up cross in
his room. Sees things in the night -i.e. dark shadows...has bad dreams... Apparently he started getting mean and violent.
He is apparently getting worse.
And now -to further the parents' anxiety - apparently the baby (around 1-yr old) has been "waving" at unseen things.
Mollie has spent big bucks going to some psychics and such over the last year or so. She has apparently smudged with sage and done other stuff the
psychics have told her to do -but nothing is helping. She is really scared.
I have never dealt with a situation quite like this. When I go visit, I'll get the full story and share here. Before I leave there, I will smudge for
them again-with prayer and an (old) rosary I have which I've used for healing. I will talk to whatever entity may be there, I'll explain to him that
this Mollie isn't HIS Mollie (in case it's being haunted by the man who shot himself, which I presume might be the case- if indeed there is actually a
spirit there). I will be kind but very very firm. I'll surround the house with sea salt. What else can I do to help these people. Any suggestions?
I know they are feeling desperate. I don't know how much of this is imagined, or even fueled by stuff other than actual happenings (i.e. kid has an
overseen medical/psychological condition, etc)
I will keep you posted, but I hope I can get some advice between now and when I leave later this afternoon. I'll check in here as much as I can
before. Sorry, I have no pics, but I will try and take some this afternoon, if I am allowed. (Then it'll be a matter of figuring out how to upload
them to here. Haha)
Thanks friends, in advance of your suggestions. And yes, don't worry. I know how to protect myself.
