I believe you. I moved into a house at the begining of the year and immediatly i knew there was something not write about the house. Both of the previouse owners died ( in the house i think). The first thing i did was talk out loud to the "ghost". I let them know that i was not hear to harm their house and i would respect it and to please stop. I can't say that i had doors slamming but i could feel i was being watched and not alone. We did have the dishwasher randomly turn itself on once and that same morning the basement door "opened ' itself and let the cat out. Ever since i had the chat with the "ghost" I have not had any weird feelings or happenings. Now my wife on the other hand has had weird things happen, nothing major just the hearing of footsteps and such (can't remember all of what she said, I was not really listening to all she was saying.) But i told her that i asked the ghost to stop and that she should too, I also asked them to stop bugging her.
This does sound weird to some people i suppose but i know what i felt and if it happened to others they would kknow it too.

Wow how interesting! Guess he didnt like the garage? I lived in Germany for 5 years and the house i lived in was over 100 years old and it used to be the poor peoples hospital/barber/dentist! no joke.So you know people died in it? My wifes in the AF so she got stuck on nightshift cuz she was new,when i would lay down and just start to get sleepy i could hear "bussiness" going on? it sounded busy downstairs is the only way to describe it. It drove me nuts i would get up and go downstairs but of course nothing was there. We had a Craftsman coffee pot that didn't have the auto setting so i would get the coffee all ready and in the morning i would turn it on and hit the shower get the kids going. One very early morning i woke up to the smell of coffee? i went downstairs and yup the coffee was bitter and had evaporated a few cups? which meant it had been on for several hours. A week later i was drinking apple schnaaps and got really buzzed and i screamed THIS IS MY HOUSE AND I MAKE THE GD COFFEE GOT IT? it never happened again. Thought i'd share.

I've lived in very hold homes, very new homes, and everything in between. There were spooks in every last one of them. Ghosts are everywhere. Spooks are everywhere. Spirits are everywhere. It's a crap shoot as to what you get. As for the control issue - you can invite certain ones in, but others come anyways. It's just the way it is.
Smudging used to help us. I can't do it now (health reasons).
But smudging definately made a peaceful difference.

and my wife and I bought it from her grandmother. Her grandfather has long since passed. but they only owned it since the 1940's but the house was built in 1860. Well sometimes, I get the feeling that I am not alone.
When I recently rebuilt the garage and attached it to the house, strange things started to happen.
Not like the Amityville Horror kind of strange, but un-explained nonetheless.
Sitting at the kitchen table, I would hear doors slamming, the sound coming from the new addition.
I would think, that maybe I had an intruder, and would go check it out, only to find all doors secure and locked.
This would happen once or twice a day.
After a month or so, I was fed up with the situation.
I had been drinking, and heard the door slam, and I walked fast to the addition of the house, and yelled loud, "This is MY house, get OUT!".
I haven't had any doors slammed since, that was about 4 months ago.
True story. I feel if you are afraid, you feed uninvited guests, but if you are strong, you are in command.
What do you guys think?
