I experienced a haunting in my house which lasted for about 3 months.

My house is estimated to be 117 years old and was the original farmhouse for my small town Australian town. We started renovating a year after we moved in and lots of unexplainable things started happening. My son has a fisher price electronic train toy, you could press a button and it would play a song and drive around the room. It would randomly start moving along the floor, several times it did this while playing its music but with the tune playing in slowmo (Creepy AF). Every morning I'd wake up to find a bayonet-style lightbulb laying on the dining table like it fell out of the ceiling socket. We'd click it back in only to find it fell out again the next day. For three consecutive days before the haunting stopped it was found smashed all over the table.

One night my husbands friend was over for a bbq. We were all sitting in the living room watching a movie and talking about the strange occurrences. As if on cue we started seeing "spirit orbs" flying about. They'd only appear for a second then disappear. This freaked me out so much I burnt sage and pleaded with it to leave. Nothing happened after that.

one time i was walking through the regular suburban shopping centre near my house, when an old man stepped out of the crowd and took my hand. He was clean and well dressed, had a large but well groomed beard, and he seemed extremely sincere and sober - but excited -, as he said to me
"it's such an honour to meet you! you are a truly incredible person! you're going to go on to great things; one day you will be a great leader of men!"
i was really caught off guard - i'm not used to strangers talking to me at all, let alone to give me such grandiose compliments, so i just kind of stammered some thanks while he stood there beaming the most enthusiastic and genuine smile i've seen in my life, and then he suddenly melted back into the crowd and was gone.

the story probably doesn't read that strange, but there was just something about the utter sincerity about him that... well, i've lived an eventful life crammed full of truly weird occurences, and a decade later i still wonder about it often.

No worries at all.

Have you heard of the Yogi master who is purported to be able to have trinkets and things drop into his hand from thin air?

He also can go long periods without any food or water or excreting and has been scientifically tested regarding his ability to live without food.

Can't remember his name..

Seems like I remember reading something about him, but I don't remember his name either.

Since my experience, I have learned more about matter and quantum physics. When we understand that everything vibrates at a certain frequency, it makes it easy to understand how things can materialize and disappear before our very eyes.
A table, for example, vibrates as such a low frequency it appears and feels solid. If the vibration of the table were raised higher than our own, it would begin to fade from our sight until it disappeared.

Changing the vibration/frequency of an object can be done using sound.
Take the story of The Wall of Jericho in the bible. The soldiers marched around the wall seven times blowing a trumpet, and the wall came tumbling down (because they destabilized the structure using sound).

Sound can also be used to affect our mood. This is easily done using music. Have you ever been in a bad mood, or depressed and heard an upbeat song come on the radio? Did you notice your "mood" seem to change? Or maybe you were in a good mood, but then heard a sad song, and you were depressed afterward?
Listening to calm, soothing music can used to help people sleep, while playing something wild and upbeat can give people energy.

Okay, enough. This is about weirdness, not science, so I'll stop here.

Now, the question is... who/what is around us that is manipulating the frequency of our personal objects?

Thanks for bringing this discussion to the table, I love the twilight zone type stuff! I can't think of anything that out of the ordinary that has happened to me personally other than I did see a strange ufo type object, which the closest rational or mundane explanation I can come up with is that it was a swarm of insects of some type. I was absolutely awe struck at the time though, I had my phone with me and the last thing that came to mind was taking a picture. I was paralyzed where I stood until it (whatever it was) passed.

Another strange incident I once had was this kid come up and ask me for my autograph, I still can't believe that out of all the people I've encountered it was only this one kid who recognized my greatness! Haha

Where's the spirit of adventure and curiosity?

Do you think that the seeking of adventure and the satisfaction of curiosity come easily?

much easier to jump in in the role of skeptic and the gatekeeper of "truth".

Or play the court jester, looking for laughs and tips. We've a few of those on this site.

Was that directed at me and the intent of the OP?

I like clear communication.

As I explained in the OP, this is the Gray Area. There's no need for skeptics and debunkers.

The first two posters after the OP, were clearly out of line and picked the wrong thread to chime in on.

It appears that the first follow up reply to the OP was actually triggered not just by what I wrote in the OP but possibly by my signature link.

I'm getting sick and tired to be honest of the presumptuousness and arrogance of these types of posters who think they know it all and that it's their job to police others or act as gatekeepers of truth, especially for a thread like this in The Gray Area. I don't think they're even as smart as they let on, to be so blind.

Poor communications that shoots side arrows at people is also a poor way to communicate. Best to communicate straight and direct and take what you get in return that's the way it ought to be done.

May people feel free to continue to share their weird experiences, authentically. So far I haven't seen any jokers or tricksters, but yeah, there are some, but they don't last too long around here.

Best regards,

I'm the first to poo-poo on peoples' supernatural tales and stories but....

When I was younger, maybe 17, I was in bed one night going to sleep. Had left the light on and the small TV in my room. My bed was parallel to the wall which had a window next to it but was nearly the length of the room - there was maybe a 2 foot gap between the edge of my bed and the wall/window.

Anyhow, I was lying semi-asleep on my side, facing the wall/window when I distinctly felt my pillow being 'pulled' toward that 2 foot gap between the bed and the wall (jesus, getting shivers remembering this..) and that 'scrunched' up feeling of the pillowcase material, like a hand had grasped it and was pulling it. In those milliseconds, my brain was freaking out but I didn't want to react and give whatever it was any idea I was aware/awake.

So I turned over/away from that side of the bed and I am sure I saw some mottled grey figure leap over the bed and away out my door.

That is what I remember. However, I like science. And I'm a rational and logical person. So, my assumption is, I was asleep and dreamed it. Or, I was in between sleep and drifting off and my mind played tricks on me.

In any case, I have zero evidence that it happened apart from my memory, which, nearly 30 years later, is easily corrupted and no doubt conflated it into something that it was.

Still though...damn near sh*t myself that night, no word of a lie.

Hello friend, I would like to start out by saying..

Your OP was beautifully laid out and explains the rules clearly. The fire is burning and table set like you said. Don't let the Trolls get to you. They know what this is too.

So. I was once a flooring installer, experienced in all types of floor and wall coverings. Especially tile.

One time I was at a job in somebody's house, finishing up the grout in a massive tile backsplash in their kitchen. A large doorless opening separated the kitchen from the living room. I put 3mil semi-transparent plastic from floor to ceiling and wall to wall to isolate any dust from the work from the living room and the rest of the house.

The owner was on vacation and I was the only person at the house.

While applying and washing the grout I began to notice some extremely weird things going on in there. My work was very quiet and the only real noise was from squeezing a sponge into a bucket of water... The ultra thin plastic sheet never moved unless I happen to walk past it, when I did it was loud and crinkley..

I'm sorry this is long winded bear with me, these details are relavant.

There was a wood floor throughout the house. As i was working a heard a clear footstep behind the plastic in the living room. When I froze and turned around i didn't see anybody, although I could see the blurry outlines of all the furnature and would certainly see someone through the plastic, if there was...

I continued working and I heard another louder step. Immediately after the plastic sheet began to ruffle, exactly as it does when you walk past it. Just for a couple seconds.

I yelled out "hello" "is there anybody else here??"
Then I decided to make a quick search of the house just to be sure. Nobody else was in there.

So I went back to work. And I heard more steps every now and then. Just one step, sometimes followed by the plastic again. But no movement of plastic unless a step before. Eventually I was almost used to it. At that point I would just stop to spare a quick glance just in case, thenjoy ignore and continue working..

Then the really bonkers thing happened.

Every step so far had definitely come from the other side of the plastic wall.

Suddenly I hear one directly behind me, on my side of the plastic. I casually turn and look over my right shoulder...

And I see a woman standing there, in a very menacing way, staring at me with black dead eyes full of hate. was just like that chick from The Ring....

And she was making a face similar to this... it took a second to sink in. I stared for a full second before I screamed and instinctivly jumped perhaps 2 feet into the air and 4 feet closer to my tools, counter clockwise spin. Now she is gone. From step to appear to dissappear was less than 4 seconds.

I have never seen anything like that. Or any ghosts or whatever the hell that was.

Immediately I went down the possibilities...

Time traveler
Chick from the ring
Or hallucination. But the plastic that had inexplicably been moving after the steps.

Whatever is was I git the impression it wanted me out. I finished my work and left and never returned.

I have only shared this a couple times.
This is far from the strangest thing I've made it through.

Also a couple of sleep paralysis episodes were pretty damn strange . . .

I do have another one to share.

After my parents passed away and I'd moved from the house (i'd moved back home for the last year or so while they were still alive), I then rented out my house to a close, childhood friend of mine and his fiancée.

Anyway, one day, while they were having a shower together, my friend says that they BOTH clearly heard my voice calling out, even shouting, calling out his name over and over again "Chris...! "Chris...!".

So he quickly got out of the shower, grabbed a towel and went to the door to see. No one there. No one at all.

I was NOT there that day, never went to the house and called out his name.

Could it have been someone else who sounded like me who then left in a hurry? Possible.

They swear though that it was my voice shouting his name.

I can tell you that I'm not so comfortable with the idea of simultaneous bilocation or having a ghost while one is still alive and well.

That's probably the strangest thing that I've encountered, aside from other things that could have been as much projection or even psychosis as anything that really and truly happened as I experienced it. And no worries, I'm ok now. I used to be a werewolf but I'm ok noooowWWWWWWWWW! JK! LOL

Carry on... this thread is starting to get GOOD and very interesting..

Does anyone need a top up on their drink?
the fire pops as if the first to speak up, perhaps hoping someone will throw a smashing glass into it's maw even if only for dramatic effect and/or to break one spell only to cast yet another, while we all then wait in silence for the next person to begin sharing. And no, it's not always easy, but take heart, there isn't much that will surprise any of us because we've also been in those shoes at one time or another and in one form of another, but it sure is interesting to hear the stories and experiences of others. On baited breath we patiently wait. It's your turn..

It could have been the previous owner.
I've heard they don't like people changing the way things were when they lived there.

Could have been a deceased family member stopping Chris from... well, you know...before they were married. Old folks are like that, you know?

Heh. And using my voice because it was still laying around the house even though I no longer lived there?

What, that's it?!

We've already exhausted the supply of the weird and the strange at ATS? Can't be. That would be too weird.

Would someone else please go?

When I was a kid, had a radio controlled car that liked to fire up in the middle of the night.
Without batteries.
Lots of weird, apparently EM related things like that.
Coupled with night terrors, weird visited sensations and astral projections made going to sleep a problem for me as a kid.

Most recently, had a mildly weird situation involving some birds.

About a month after that, had a minor haunting episode that seemed to last for a couple of days. Mostly random light bulbs blowing out, a few battery operated devices going off randomly and a heavy wood pencil holder somehow fell off the desk behind me, landing upright.

Nothing to call the Ghostbusters about, but I live alone and things like that tend to stand out.

I’ve had several strange things happen to me that were sealed into my memory. The type I refer back to and still to this day wonder about. I will give a brief summary of them here.

Interesting thread btw.

1) As a young child, my sister and I both shared a room, we slept in bunk beds in our room together. When we were younger we both talked about seeing things in our doorway during the night time hours. I woke many times and in the door way would see this stat-icky iridescent like substance floating in the doorway and window ways, sometimes it would take on silhouettes of human like shapes. To this day I don’t know what it was, but it was there often. We would talk about it, so no I was not asleep and dreaming about it. I don’t know to this day what it was.

2)Again as a younger child, one night while sleeping on the top bunk bed of my room, I awoke and right in front of me I saw only what I could describe as devilish face appear. It scared me to death and I screamed out. I swear I was not dreaming when this happened. The image of it was sealed into me. It reminds me of some of those old Mayan God images, it was very colorful and animated. The face was squarish in shape, alot of colors. At no point had I seen or been exposed to pictures that resembled this face which appeared to me. Not until much later on when the Internet became available and I was able to look at massive amounts of data and images, did I ever see anything remotely similar to this face again (of course with exception to it being sealed into my mind for eternity).

3) I awoke very afraid one night, and called out to my Mom. She came into the room to check on me. I could not really explain why I was scared so we thought perhaps I’d had a bad dream. So she offered to check out the house, a distraction technique to set my mind at ease during the situation at hand. I got out of bed and walked the house with my Mom and of course nothing was found. So back to bed we went. After I fell back to sleep, my Mom returned to bed too. I fell asleep pretty quickly again. Shortly after an old box metal fan in my parents bedroom blew and caught fire. I don’t think my Mom had time yet to fall back to sleep so was alert enough that the danger of the fan catching the house on fire was prevented. The whole house awoke to this fiasco, except me… I slept right through it and did not learn about it until the next day. I feel this was an omen I’d had of danger, as if I awoke just before it happened to alert my Mom of a potentially dangerous situation.

orry to interject here (good post btw) but a few days ago I saw a music video posted on this thread (I think)...sort of a horror hip hop, white rapper, blonde dancers, blackfaced white eyed demons...real hellish atmosphere....anyway, the link has since disappeared...anyone remember it or csn point me in the right direction?

I never saw that, but expected some weirdness to show up in this thread. Your post would qualify.
