Edit to add:
That is crazy that the house that you are writing about is in the GA. The house that I lived in below was right in Brookhaven in the ATL.
Because of the Native American burial site, it is illegal to develop it, so the house just sits right next to it. Anyway...
I used to live in a house that people told me was haunted.
I do not have an opinion on what it was, but I will relate my story to you.
I was in my early 20's and I moved into a house with my then girlfriend. The bedroom that was mine never had anyone come near it.
One girl that spent the night in that room removed herself out of the bed and left, and then refused to ever come back to the house.
It was a time in my life when I was pretty heavy into witchcraft.
I wasn't really taking it as seriously as I should have, but anytime one conjures the sephiroth then strange happenings are sure to follow.
We would have lights turn on in rooms when no one had been in the room and we were gone.
We would wake up in the middle of the night with the heat on full blast and we both knew that we turned it off.
The original owners of the house were mad afraid of the end of the world and the basement was built as a bomb shelter.
They lived there for 50 years.
Before that it was a for real Native American burial site.
It is in straight up down town Atlanta. Prime real estate. 5 acres with a two bedroom house that NO ONE will rent.
The basement was really bizarre.
At first, we were going to "grow" some "food" down there, but it was sooooooooo freaky.
It had a trap door leading to an entrance in the floor, but it had been boarded up.
The lights would come on ALL the time with no one down in the basement.
We were obsessed with the "supernatural" at the time. It was the first time that I had encountered the idea of the "illuminati".
We had many a sceance with a ouija board while we were on '___' and the couch randomly caught on fire during one of the ceremonies.
And we weren't near it. No one was within 5 feet of the couch or a candle. And they were not near one another.
The board consistently made predictions that came true years and years later.
Dead true. Scary true. To this day.
We eventually got so freaked that we split.
We packed up in less than a day and then left and told no one.
What put us over the edge was that...
We kept hearing people walk to the front door and we would answer and no one would be there. Like 5 times a night. For like a month.
When I first got into witchcraft, I thought it was so cool to say stuff like "In dei nomine satanas luciferis excelsis" when I would have sex with
my girlfriend (weird I know, but this seemed like an appropriate thread. I am not condoning it)
(in the name of satan I command you to rise is what that means btw...)
But just like Aleister Crowley said:
In this book it is spoken of the Sephiroth and the Paths; of Spirits and Conjurations; of Gods, Spheres, Planes, and many other things which may or
may not exist. It is immaterial whether these exist or not. By doing certain things certain results will follow; students are most earnestly warned
against attributing objective reality or philosophic validity to any of them." — Aleister Crowley (Magick in Theory and Practice)
