Ah yes, the nice 'part of the family' ghost. I can honestly say that the being(s) that reside in my families home are part of the family.
Now, it isn't like we sit around and play cards with these guys, but they are nothing evil and are, if anything, helpful at times. I see all this
talk in Val's thread about needed prayer circles and people urging her to get rid of the ghots...why?
So Val, if you are reading this, I have not had the time to go through all 33 pages of that thread (working on it though
) but from what I have read
only one person has suggested that these ghosts may not be anything harmful at all. They seem to be attempting to get your attention and just want you
to know that they are there. Hell, I can relate to most everything that has happened to you so far throughout your thread.
One nice little example of the ghosts in my house being an obvious presense is walking up the stairs at night. When going to the second floor it feels
as if someone is watching you. The feeling freaked me out for awhile and when I finally told my parents about it they just laughed and said "oh, you
don't need to worry about him. he is just making sure you get up to bed alright". They refused to tell me anything else because they didn't want to
put ideas in my head. Well, almost every night I kept getting that feeling when I would walk upstairs. One day a friend who was staying the night for
the first time and I, or anyone in my family, had told him about the 'being watched' feeling when going up to the second floor.
He got upstairs and looked at me and said, "I don't know why but I have the strongest feeling that someone watched me come up here". Haha, we were
the only ones home and I explained to him that apparently its normal for this house.
So, one day as I was getting that feeling while going to bed I thought about what my parents had said. As the thought came to mind I just stopped
midway and, without turning around, said "Goodnight". Bam! Feeling of being watched gone. I asked my parents and they both smiled as they told me
about how they always get the feeling to and just say "See you in the morning" and it goes away.
So now I get the feeling most every night I stay there and just say goodnight and it goes away. He (we call that one he because we are pretty sure its
an elderly man) simply makes sure all goes well. I am pretty sure he probably did the same thing for his family when he was still alive in that
So, the offtopic and hard to follow moral of the story is: Val, maybe they are 'good ghosts' that just need some attention
