I think my house is haunted. It goes beyond me thinking that, really. Skeptical visitors and overnight guests have also been convinced my house is haunted after staying here. It took me a while to admit that all of the strange stuff that happens wasn't my imagination, bad wiring, or a prankster. I have lived here for four years and in the four years we have gone from little things happening like the lights or water coming on by itself to lately seeing bright lights flash and float around and a clear orb that has an inky black center that floats around and will occasionally play with the cats.

Not once have I ever felt threatened, endangered, or very scared by what has happened here. If anything the "ghost" seems playful and has a sense of humor. Sometimes when I am here by myself I almost get the impression the ghost tries to say "Hey, you're not alone."

This is the latest big thing that happened two weeks ago. I would appreciate any input anyone here wants to give.

My husband was traveling and I was home with the two cats. I went to bed around 11 pm. I hadn't been in bed very long and was not even close to being asleep when I heard a rustling noise behind me where my bedside stand is. I smiled to myself thinking that my youngest cat, who likes to steal things out of my purse or off my bedside stand, was about to get busted. I quickly rolled over but there was no cat. What I did see stunned me. Inside my purse was a bright, glowing light. I could see the light shining out of both sides of my purse so whatever was glowing was inside the purse. The glow was bright enough that I could easily see the floor, my bedside area, and a close bookcase. My first thought was my iPod was in my purse and had somehow turned itself on but a quick look showed the iPod was on the charger where I had left it earlier-- not in my purse. My cell phone was right next to it. I probably sat there, looking at the glowing light for about 40 to 60 seconds with my mouth hanging open. Then, for reasons I still cannot fathom, I reached into my purse. The light immediately went out and I felt something kind of slide past my hand and exit the purse. There was a feeling of motion, and I distinctly heard something fall on the floor. I snapped on the overhead lights and looked around. There was nothing on the floor. I even got on my hands and knees and searched. I then emptied out my purse and went through everything. There was nothing in there that would emit even a soft glow let alone a glow bright enough to shine through my purse and illuminate the surrounding area.

This is just one of the many weird things that happen here. Again, I would appreciate any of your thoughts on the subject.

I see quite a-lot of the bright flashes but usually only last about 2 seconds or so just seem to materialize and after a couple of seconds dematerialize.

When I was 16 i had an experience with my girlfriend, we was staying in my mothers house at the time (they were away lol) and while in bed i hear the flooboards as if somebody is walking up the stairs, I sit up and see a shadow pass outside the door as the hallway light was on, I turned to my girlfriend woke her up as at the time I thought somebody was trying to steal or something. So i pick up a TV aerial god knows why lol and waited for the shadow to pass the bottom of the floor and bam ! slammed the door open and nothing there except a very cold chilling feeling, I checked every single corner , cupboard you name it and it's safe to say I have more of an open mind on this topic now lol.

This is really quite an interesting situation. More recently than not, I seem to catch lights out of the corner of my eye. White and red lights...but as youamstupid said, they only last a few seconds or even as short as a fraction of a second. They will appear out of the corner of my eye and I'll look quickly to see if I can catch a glimpse of one but it's always gone. For me, it could be some sort of reflection or even just tiny hallucinations. Hard to tell-

--But for you, now that's just odd. You don't think that it was some sort of hallucination carried over from a dream do you? I know you hadn't been asleep for very long so I kind of doubt this. Just thought it would be worth asking. It is more common (or so I think) to have visions carried over from your dream state right after awakening from the deep sleep stage which occurs after quite a few hours of sleep. Again, it seems unlikely but I suppose nothing is impossible.

The first thing that honestly came to my mind when you said that, and partial flame gear has been equipped, is the possibility of a fairy. The light and the characteristics you explained kind of just reminded me of it, but I don't well enough know the characteristics of real faeries (if you believe in them). Hmm, if I stumble across anything else in any books of mine or online about bright lights I will let you know.

Thanks for the interesting story, though!

I sometimes see very short burst of lights like that but every once in a while we will have even longer ones that will last 45 seconds or so. This one was probably the longest one I have seen probably lasting over a minute

Have you ever heard of ghost called a Vardogr or Vardoger? I just recently ran across a couple of references to them. They're from Norwegian folklore and they mimic the sounds of people arriving home. I don't know why but that came to mind when I read your story.

I would never say it was impossible that I had fallen asleep but I am almost positive I hadn't fallen asleep. I looked at the clock as I was getting to bed and it was exactly 11 pm. When I looked at my iPod charger (which is also a clock radio) I noted it was around 11:04. I do sometimes have my dreams carried over as I am just waking up but 4 minutes would be kind of fast for me to fall asleep and start dreaming.

I don't know, I think it would kind hard for me to flame you for suggesting a fairy when I am full out saying I have a ghost!


I don't know anything about fairy folk at all. To be honest a part of me thought TINKER BELL! When I first saw it. I do have all sorts of other stuff happening here like knocking on walls, doors opening and closing, cold spots....could a fairy do all that?

Sorry for the long wait for this reply...I'm sure you weren't losing sleep over it though
However, I believe you when you explain about the whole 'falling asleep thing'. At one point in time I had woke up in the morning and heard a voice. A distinct voice (whisper) but no one was there. I felt like I was awake but...I couldn't be sure. My experience is slightly irrelevant, my apologies for that, but to continue:

I am not 100% sure if I would be able to answer your questions about fairies accurately. I do know a little...but probably not enough. What I do know, though, is that a fairy is a nature spirit. Which, with my understanding, they are similar to a regular spirit ... just usually found in nature? (if anyone can add anything to my knowledge or fix it, for that matter, please do so!) I would imagine that they are capable of doing certain things like that, but I can't be certain.

Another possibility I suppose could be an angel? Maybe a spirit of an angel? Or, again on a limb here...maybe a manifested spirit of an angel in an orb? If so, I think that's the first case of a visible orb...ever! So, not sure, but still interesting none the less.

Those were all interesting suggestions. Our discussion has made me really examine what has been going on. For the first 2 or 3 years I had what could be considered a classic haunting...doors opening and closing on their own, the water coming on, and so on. Then maybe the last 12-18 months more started happening like the lights and seeing the clear orb like things with the inky black threads.

I, of course, thought this was all from the same...person. It came to me after your suggestions tho, maybe by being so open to the first ghost maybe some other type of spirit dropped in. Again all of this is very friendly, positive whatever it is.

A friend mentioned my situation to someone she described as a sensitive and this person said that the spirit that was around was something that was protective and I should pay attention to it. I thought that was interesting since I had always had the thought that someday I am going to need to pay attention to a message and I needed to be open to it by not dismissing my ghost.

Thanks for the input.

Are you familiar with E.V.P.? Google it if not. If there is a presence there then you may be able to capture some sounds it may make, especially if it is trying to communicate with you.

No problem! Anything dealing with paranormal phenomena like your situation always intrigues me. Furthermore, I am always willing to help out in any way that I can! If you ever need any other input (I don't know everything but I can always try), feel free to U2U me.

I have tried EVP a couple of times. Only once did I get anything odd. At one of the questions (who are you) the was sort of a build up of static that suddenly stopped. Analysing the static didn't provide any information...there seemed to be no underlying voice or message.

We also tried taking pictures but we never even get anything as mundane as a dust orb!

Thanks for the suggestion!
