I have to be honest-reading your post, two things come to mind:
I am a paranormal researcher, and I am also a magical practicioner (that is my religion).
Whenever I am called in to investigate phenomena, one of the first things I must do, is to investigate the "natural", before the supernatural.
You must start to keep a diary of all the experiences you are haing. The date, time, weather condition(s), ect.
Also note any odors, colors, and sounds that you experinece during your "sightings".
One thing that does help with unwelcome "visitors", is to "smudge" the area with white sage. That is readily available at any health food store
(or New-Age bookstore). It involves buring the sage (remember to disconnect your smoke alarms first) and simply walk from room-to-room, and allow the
smoke to wafe about.
If you see the phantom, you might address them directly (do they seem to be aware of you? does the spirit look at you directly?) tell them "this is
my home, and I want you to leave." You do have the authority to do that.
Depending on your religion, you may want to use the "St. Michael's Prayer" for protection.
If you wish to find a "real" parapsychologist to help you, I would contact a Unitarian Universalist Church.
In the meanwhile, I believe that you really believe you are having these experiences. But, sleep depravation, change of diet, allergies , amy things
can cause an inbalance that can cause what appears to be a "supernatural" occurance.
I am also interested in why you did not follow through with your mortuary studies.
I know that I am a relative "newbie" here at ATS, but I have heard about similar experinces.
However, until your own physical health, and a few other questions are answered, I would not know how you should proceed.
Try the smudging.....
whether you have "real" spiritual visitors, or something else, it can only help.....
