Let me preface this by saying I've been sensitive to the paranormal as far back as my memory goes. I'm an educated agnostic, my wife and 3 children
are Catholic. I've been all over the world, 53 countries and I've seen many strange things from excorcisms and legitimate posession cases to full
The purpose of this thread is to get your thoughts and feedback on what's been transpiring in my home and our previous homes.
After college I had a severre lull in activity. For a couple years it's almost like my powers of observation dimmed. Until March 18, 2000. My
birthday and my wedding day. My brother and best man hit head on in a drunk driving accident in the middle of the country in rural se Virginia. Both
were killed. For whatever reason I awoke at the estimated time of the wreck and drove directly to where the accident was. This was before the local
police made a call to any of the families regarding the wreck. The last thing my 18 year old brother said to me was, "Don't marry her". In our
wedding pgotos there were many strange itemscaptured in the photos. Strange lights, translucent apparitions, etc...
We lived on an old civil war era farm in VA. We immediately had a spike in activity. A bang on the barn that kept gettting closer until it was on
the house and eventually at the window beside my head. My wife and her mother decided to use a spirit board to communicate with whatever was there.
The 2 of them manned the board blindfolded while a 3rd party documented the letters. Needless to say there were interesting results. A boy named
James said we were the reincarnation of his parents, and that my wife/his former mother killed him. He said she was evil and I should leave. This is
3 months after our wedding. Anyway after 1 year and numerous other events ranginf rom apparitions, objects moving, voices... My wife became pregnant
and gave birth to my son who I named after my deceased brother.
Upon the birth of my son we had increased seemingly benevolent activity in our new home after we moved from the farm into a nice condo. A couple of
years later my son was diagnosed with testicular cancer. My wife immediately left us both. She never came to see him get chemo over the course of a
year. Towards the end of chemo I met who would become my 2nd wife, my soulmate. My son adored her and since then we've had 2 more children.
While my son was in chemo, I moved to a small island in North Carolina called Knotts Island. A beautiful on 3 acres right on the currituck sound. My
wife was terrified upon moving to this house. The couple I bought the house from actually were so terrified of it they built a house 1/4 mile up the
street and let it sit empty for 2 years. My son the cancer patient experienced 3 shadowy, black hooded men extending their fingers towards and was
saved by an angel named John who said he was my brother. My son was never informed about my brother, or that I even had one. There were no pictures
up yet he described him perfectly. Anyway, in this house we experienced voices, shadow people, objects moving... But the worst part, and after years
of paranormal experience this was the 1st time I ever experienced this... Every night for about a year I was slapped across the face at the same time
every night. My wife witnessed it countless times and was terrified. One evening we actually saw the hooded entity melt out of the wall and come
slap me then melt back into it. I eventually dispatched this entity.
Anyway many houses since and much more activity... One thing my brother and I always thought was that our grandmother's spirit dwelled within my
mothers house. The day she passed away a clock which was a family heirloom stopped at the time of her death. One day it arbitrarily started. After
that day we sensed a powerful energy and it was obvious it was my grandmother. We just knew it. My wife instantly knew who it was...
