I know there are lots of similar threads here at ATS about ghosts and things of a similar nature, but I just wanted to hear some of your stories of personal experiences/contact with ghosts, angels, demons, etc. To start things off, I'll share a story of mine...

My grandparents house has always been haunted. They live in a very old house that has been standing since the civil war. Several people have died in that house in the past 100 years alone. There are, however, only two spirits that make themselves known almost on a daily basis. The spirit of an old woman and her young daughter are always around. After initially realizing what was going on, my grandparents investigated and found the ghost was of a woman who had lived in the house right before they bought it. She had a daughter who died of unkown causes when she was 6 years old. The woman had lived until she was 67 and then passed away as well. Both spirits are constantly present in their house even today. It is nothing unusual to have doors open and close while you are in a room, or perhaps feel a spot of pressure next to your feet while lying in bed (as if someone has sat down) Lights constantly come on and off (not just on, the switches actually flip) as well as televisions, radios, etc. The upstairs room that was the young girls constantly echoes sounds of balls bouncing, and the giggles of a young girl playing. The downstairs living room has a rocking chair that frequently rocks itself. There are even times when they are visibal. I have witnessed all this firsthand as well as seen them both twice. My grandparents and mother have seen them countless times and have accepted them as part of the house. They have never caused any trouble, and to our knowledge, do not even know they are dead, or that we are there.

I'd love to hear some of your stories about any experiences you or someone you know has had. Please feel free to share.

I'd love to give you some examples of what your looking for, but could you be more specific as to what you are interested in? Dreams, actual seeing with your physical eyes or hearing with your ears? Feeling them or getting messages?

I was just reading your post and felt that I should write to you and tell you my problem.

My husband and I moved into our house 26 months ago.

We bought it from the our neighbor who lives next door.
A few days after we moved in I could sense that something was terribly wrong in this house.

We have both been sick and my husband came close to death and was hospitalized for 6 days.

To make a long story shorter, the woman next door:

Her Mother lived in this house for 15 years and she told me ( later) that she died in the room that I am in right now.

My neighbor was the nicest person in the world to us and then on July 4th of last year she stopped speaking to us. I have no idea why.
She stopped working and is home all day and I feel like she is projecting negative energy at us.

I feel that she does not want us in this house but I don't know what to do because I don't have the money to move.

I think that one reason she is angry is because we changed everything here . We moved and planted flowers and plants and painted the house a different color but we were just trying to make it "our" home.

When we moved in every single wall was white and it has gray carpet. I found out later that she and her Mom decorated this house in black and white and I have totally redone it in bright , cheerful colors. The daughter's house is all black and white inside too.

I guess I'm skipping around alot but I want to tell you, everything that could happen has happened to us with this house.

The plumbing had to be replaced, lights come on by themselves and at night I see shadows out of the corner of my eye as I'm sitting in bed watching tv. When I turn the tv off and lay down to go to sleep I hear voices of people talking. It sounds like men and women argueing about something but I can't make out what they are saying.

One night I was leaned against the headboard of my bed watching tv. My husband was asleep. Keep in mind that this is an old HEAVY headboard.
That headboard started shaking so bad! My husband never woke up during this. This bedroom was HER bedroom. The next day I moved into another bedroom and I'm still there but I worry about my husband staying in that room. This happened about one year ago.

I never told my husband about this because he is not in good health.
Well, the other morning ago he told me that he was awakened by the bed vibrating so bad he had to get up.
He says it felt like the floor was moving it was so bad and we in Florida with no earthquakes that I know of.

Do you think the daughter next door is sending negative thoughts to me and my husband and to this house?

Sometimes I fear that something really bad is going to happen to us if we don't get out of this house.

I really would appreciate your advice and I'm sorry this is so long.
I had to tell you everything.

OMgosh! MagicaRose, I think I replied to your post here in another thread. Darn it. Let me go look around and see if I can find it.

Edited to add... shoo. Ok, that post is in the other thread too. I was starting to wonder!

I am interested in anything. Anything to do with the paranormal, ghosts, spirits, demons, angels, whatever you have had experience with. Having many of these experiences myself I am alwasy fascinated to hear what other people go through.

First of all, why do you suppose she chose that one certain day to stop being polite to you? It seems odd doesn't it. If she was always nice to you before I wonder why all of a sudden everything would change like that. Is that specific date anywhere around the date her mother passed on? That could have something to do with it.

Yes, I think it is entirely possible that she is projecting negative energy your way. I think it would be very strange for this woman to have so much power that she could control your entire home. I realize this is cliched but do you know if the daughter has anything to do with black magic or something similar? Also, whether or not that is the case, have you ever considered some sort of counter-spell for protection? Or do you even believe in that sort of thing? If you do, it may be something you want to consider.

While I don't think you or your husband are in any immediate danger, I would caution you to be careful. Please let me know what you think. If you might be interested in a counter, I might be able to help you find the right one.

I'll share one of the many, because it might help magicarose.

Our neighborhood was farmland before we moved in. Me and about 3 of our neighbors were the first to move in. I thought it was just us until one of the other neighbors spoke up and asked "does anything weird happen at your house". There was this little kid who would go around all our houses (the ones that had kids). We would hear him talking at night. We could be there sitting watching tv, and hear a child talking. Same with them. We all would go around checking on the kids to make sure it wasnt them. Our husbands had even gone around the houses looking for kids outside. This child would come around a lot. After a year or two I woke up in the middle of the night with a child beside my bed saying "mommy". Opened my eyes and no one was there, but I could still sense him there. I could tell he was lost. SO, that night, I told him he could stay here until we found his mom, and stayed up darn near all night praying and asking who ever would listen to help find this kids mom, because he was lost. After that night we never heard him again.

The point I am trying to make to magicarose is that maybe you should try talking to her. Nicely. Your neighbor too for that matter. This is her mom we are talking about, and if you mentioned any of this to her, it might have upset her. Sometimes it takes people a while to really feel the loss of a loved one. Maybe she is pushed out of shape because her mom is in your house an not hers. The other thing, is that I dont think the mother in your house is mad. I think she is trying to help....bring attention to something. Is your husband having a respitory problem, a problem similar to what she had, or something totaly different? That would help narrow it down.
I just really dont feel like this lady is mad at you for being all. I think she is nice, and trying to help you. She can hear your thoughts. Talk to her. After talking to her, if all of a sudden a light goes on in your head - an idea or thought that pops into your mind (even and especially after waking the next morning) pay attention to that.
For me personally, if that were happening to me, I would go get a new mattress. She is working too hard at getting you both out of it. My first thought would be that there is something either in that mattress or in that room that is making your husband sick, or worseining his condition.

I would also agree with mrsdudara on that point. I do not feel as though the spirit in your house means you any harm. The daughter however could. It may not be a bad idea at all to go and speak with her. Before you do though, does she just not talk to you anymore, or do you feel as though she really despises you. If she just quit talking to you, it could be anything, and it may help just to talk to her. If not, it may only make things worse for you.

I am not sure if jumping to such rash conclusions such as something in the house may be hurting your husband. That seems like a leap. Taker her advice and try talking to the spirit though, you may get the answers you need.

My husband has had 2 heart attacks and a triple bypass within the last 4 years.

Last October he came home from work with a bad stomach ache.
I thought it was appendicitus so we went to the emergeny room.

Well, it turned out to be worse.
He had a micro tear in his intestines and the dr said this was very serious and he was admitted to the hospital for 6 days and given large doses of antibiotics. He was sent home and a health nurse came everyday to give him intravenous antibiotis 4 times a day for 7 days and then he had to take antibiotic pills for another 7 days.

I think he came close to dying.
About the date, July 4th. It had never occured to me but she said that the family would have big family dinners and celebrate every Holiday. Her Mom died in August. This probably brought back many memeories for her.

nyk537, at this point I feel that she despises me and my husband and I feel so uncomfortable in this house.
I have never mentioned any of this to her because I was afraid that it would upset her very much.

If you really feel that she despises you and your husband, then I would advise against talking to her. If she is, in fact, adding to these occurences with her negative energy, that could make things much worse for you. I would say your best option right now, as I said earlier, would be to attempt to contact the spirit in your house. I do not feel this spirit is dangerous or manevolant. She is probably only confused and/or lost. If you attempt to speak to her and let her know that she needs to move on, that there is a better place for her, she may listen. I would seriously considering trying this first. If this doesn't help, I can help you explore further options.

Hi I just thought I'd share my little story...
I live in a 3 story townhouse with my parents, brother and one cat. I live on the third floor, my brother and parents on the second and my cat is only allowed downstairs. The staircase to my bedroom is in the computer room. One night, I was the last one up and was going to bed. I turned off the computer room light and made my way up the steps. I was about on the 3rd or 4th step when I heard and saw something behind me in the computer room. It was like nothing I could identify with other than it sounded sort of electronic and just odd. Sorry I don't know any other way to explain the noise. But along with the noise I could also see a light flickering in the room. It did not come from the ceiling light but rather from some source in the center of the room. It was not bright enough to light the entire room, just enough to catch my attention while I was walking up the steps. I immediately turned back down the steps and flipped on the light. This all happened within a matter of seconds. While I was coming back down I did not notice anything, I just knew I wanted that light back on. So I turned it on and I saw nothing. I didn't hear anything and didn't notice anything out of whack. I looked around to see if maybe it came from the computer or something, but I couldn't figure out what had just happened. Needless to say, I was freaked. The computer room is right next to my parents room so I decided to let them know what happened (as if they could help lol). They said they didn't hear anything and to go to sleep. It was soo weird because I can't explain it away. There are a couple other things that happened in my house but I guess I can tell about that later

posted on Jun, 29 2006 @ 07:36 PM
Well I have time so I'll tell about the other things that have happened in my house. The second thing is that my cat seems to notice something. My mother and I were downstairs in the living room watching TV. My cat was on our staircase lazing around. We have a china cabinet in our living room that my cat likes to hop up on from time to time. Well all of a sudden he jumps on top on the cabinet and starts staring at something towards the ceiling in my living room. He moves his head around like he is following this thing and then creeps to the edge of the cabinet and puts his paw out to swat at whatever he is looking at. So I got up to see what had his attention and I didn't see a thing. No fly or other bug, just nothing. I was confused. Then he got up, leapt off the cabinet onto the stairs and ran down. He has done the same exact thing several times now. He has even followed "it" into the kitchen once while I was standing in it. I got out of there asap lol.

The next thing I actually felt. I was the only one in the house at the time other than my cat. I was downstairs standing up over a table, cutting paper for a project I was doing. All of a sudden I felt a quick, hard, poke in my back. No, not like a back ache or a cramp. Like someone literally took their finger and poked me. I was nervous to turn around because I know I was alone. But of course when I did, nothing was there. I would admit it if I actually thought it was just a pain in my back but I know what I felt.

The next thing is something that my brother has also experienced. We have both admitted that we hear our names being called when no one is calling us. I will be in my room doing whatever and I will hear my name being called from downstairs. Usually it sounds like someone is right at the bottom of my staircase calling for me, and sometimes it sounds like my mom and sometimes it sounds like my brother. But when I go to find out what "they" want, no one is there. When I ask them if they called for me, they say no, or sometimes no one else is home. My brother says the same things happen to him too so either we're both nuts or its actually happening.

The last thing is something my brother can attest to. He was in the computer room one day playing a video game. My staircase is in the computer room and right by where he was sitting. He heard what sounded like someone slowing coming down the steps, but he knew no one had been up there. He never saw anything cause he quickly turned off the tv and got out of there lol. We also hear loud footsteps from the 3rd floor attic which is right next to my room so yay for me.

Its funny now that I'm thinking all of this stuff because nothing unusual has happened for a very long time. I hope I haven't just jinxed myself

It sounds like you are having alot of the same experiences that I am in my house.

My dog will do the same thing.
He acts like he sees something and sometimes at night he will actually run around the room , looking up at the ceiling and barking.
This really spooks me and it takes alot to spook me.

Do you have a digital camera?
Try taking some pictures inside each room of your house. I did this and found some orbs in the strangest places. I found one on my one side of my husbands face.

I don't know what orbs are but I sure do pick up alot of them with my camera.

I have taken pictures in my house of my family etc but not specifically to catch anything on camera. To tell you the truth, I'm a little weary about finding something lol. I have even thought of trying to catch some evp but again I'm afraid of what I'll find. I probably wouldn't feel at ease in my home if I did catch any "proof". However, this past March, my boyfriend and I and his family came together to remember a family member of theirs who was also my friend. He passed away in a terrible car accident 2 years ago. I took pictures of his family and friends when we were there and when I looked through my digital camera later, I noticed some orbs. One picture in particular, was of his mother and sister and brothers and there were orbs touching each family member. I never was a big believer of orbs actually being a spirit but I really felt that was his way of letting us know he was there with us. I found that really comforting because before we came there I thought to myself, "Shane if you can, please give us a sign that you are still with us." I'm not even making that up. It gave my boyfriend and I chills when we looked though the pictures. I don't know if it was him or it just happened to be dust but in every picture that had an orb in it, the orb was touching either a family member or a friend. I just thought that was awseome.
