Normally I wouldn't think much of a big leaf moving, since there's an obvious natural cause for it, but after what we experienced tonight, it was
more bone chilling than it otherwise would have been.
Terrified, Dianne said she could not spend the night in our house tonight and insisted that we go sleep at her mom's house. I tried to argue her out
of it, but she insisted. Then I said she could go to her mom's house, but I wanted to stay here alone and see if I could experience more haunted
activity, since to me, as a paranormal buff, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and might not ever come again! But she refused to let me stay
there alone, esp since she never likes to be without me, even for one night.
Part of me was disappointed. I had read so much about ghosts and hauntings, but to experience it is quite another matter and shakes up your paradigm.
But part of me wants it because to have confirmation that ghosts exist is powerful evidence of life after death, which many want deep down.
At her mom's house, while we were watching TV, Dianne explained what she thinks happened. You see, last week our landlady's husband passed away from
multiple schlerosis. Since they live next door to us, his spirit would be haunting the area. And when the landlady moved out after that to be with her
relatives, refusing to stay at home alone, she violated the custom here that says that when a spouse passes away, you should stay at home for 40 days
in case his or her restless spirit was there. Thus, his spirit may be upset that she wasn't home, and so he came to our place next door.
Oh great, I thought. So maybe his spirit is wandering around, like that character in the movie "Ghost" or "Sixth Sense" or that newer one, I
forget its name (where the murdered teen's ghost hangs around while near death to try to help others solve his disappearance).
Also, a few days ago Dianne told me that she saw his ghost talking to her in bed earlier that morning when she woke up. She said his body was laying
down there and cold to the touch. All he said was thank you for renting our house and giving us the only income we have.
In spite of all this, I should note that when we first moved in here last January, a trike driver told Dianne's family that our house was haunted and
that someone was murdered there once, and that the last renters moved out cause they couldn't tolerate all the haunted activity there. However, the
neighbors told me that that they never heard of that. I thought that it might be true though, because the first night I slept there alone, I had a
feeling that there was a presence there and that I wasn't alone. It wasn't a scary presence though, just a sense that something was there. But since
we experienced no haunted activity til now, I never thought anything of it afterward.
But who knows if what we experienced was due to the landlady's husband passing away, or something prior to that. We don't know. But the timeline
suggests the former.
Anyhow, the next day we came back and did a traditional Catholic blessing of the home with Dianne's mom and sister, using a cross, Mary statue, holy
water and candles. Since then, all has been quiet and normal and there is now a pleasant energy about.
(By the way, Dianne's house is always full of pleasant positive energy since it's been fully blessed many times, and that's one reason, I think,
why our baby likes it there a lot more and seems far more comfortable and happier there, whereas at our place he seems restless, annoyed and
uncomfortable. Since he's there most of the time, probably by now, he thinks that Dianne's mom is his mom, and that we are just his babysitters.
lol. Oh well, at least I have more time now to write to you folks and do the dozens of projects I have on the internet to make money and build my
