Old Owner? A Poltergeist? What's Next? - Help Needed

I'm going to start this off now that I do believe in the paranormal but for good reasons. The thing is whenever anything happens first thing comes the debunking and if it can't be debunked nor explained. That is when I try to figure out what just happened.

As a kid up until now I have been plagued by all sorts of things. When I was very young it was a black man shaped mist with red eyes, as a preteen it was a boy posing as my guardian angel, as a teenager it was a dream ghost, a poltergeist, and the old owner of the house that I'm living in. Along with that all of those all sorts of things have followed me home but those were the most prominent. From when I was a kid to a preteen I used to hear people calling my name all the time until I was thirteen until now among things. It happened because supposedly because spirits love me or so I have been told. My auntie is like this, and so is another one of my older cousins.

Now that I have moved into a new house it hasn't changed. At first we were pretty excited because the house was warm and welcoming but later when we were moving in. We heard people walking around upstairs and to me it was no longer warm and welcoming. It was as if the house was this dark imposing being that wanted us out. I kept my mouth shut thinking I was imagining it. It has kept up that feeling till now. There have been these shadow beings that have been seen walking around the house. A person and this cat. My brother had seen the cat too it ends up and came to talk to me about it. I hadn't told anyone about what I had seen in the house so far until my brother came to talk to me.

The hallway was terrifying! I hated to leave the door open. I always felt as if someone was watching me until I closed it. The feeling has since stopped once it moved to the garage. Now the garage is terrifying, sometimes certain rooms. It moves around.

There has been this weird poltergeist activity. It only happens in the kitchen and garage. What happens is it sounds as if someone is clanking around loudly in either area. When I say loud I mean LOUD! It usually goes on for an hour or so before it stops. During it you can enter the kitchen and the sound will immediately stop. You can look for the source of the sound all you want and you won't find it. The moment you leave it will start again. You can reenter and right away the sound will stop immediately. This game can go on for a while. Other than that there has been things knocked over or smacked.

So far I have heard three voices, two were a women calling my name and the third was a young girl saying hi. It was exactly like when I was a kid. The last time was in June so it's been a while.

My brother's girlfriend is scared of the house but that's because certain places in the house feel depressing. According to her she can feel and see spirits. Which my brother backs up because right now there is a demon following her. Anyways, recently she had a dream of an old women with a hollow face telling her to get out of her house. She told us that she was in our house but it looked different. As in the furniture was different. The doors kept changing shape and color. It freaked her out a lot and she wonders why she had the dream. And if I remember correctly she had asked the women if she would stop bothering me.

That has worked for a while until she had that dream. Since then I haven't been able to sleep until that feeling that someone is watching me goes away. And now it happens even with my door closed. It usually stops around 5am to 8am so I haven't been sleeping very well. I'm not sure what to do anymore. I mean what if I go somewhere and bring home something worse such as what is following my brother's girlfriend or something else. I'm not sure what to do. Is there something I could do? Something I could do to protect myself? My family and I are aware you can kick out a ghost but we think that would be rude since we think it's the old owner. (She died about four years ago.) We're not sure what to do.

Demons masquerade as "ghosts." (They take on the identities of deceased individuals.) You are utterly powerless to deal with this on your own. It'll play hide and seek with you until it drives you crazy. If you want the power to make it go away, turn to Jesus, the son of the living God.

Wow! I'd run a mile.

Get the house blessed. Who knows what it might lead too. Possession?

That's what would happen in a horror movie anyway.

Good luck.

Very true. I have moved countless times throughout my life and encountered many different anomalies. If I can feel a direct line of communication, I usually acknowledge them and let them know I am a good person with good intentions. If all else fails Jesus has my back.

I have many stories of past experiences, but right now there is something (someone) in the finished part of my basement. There was an old vet who had lost his leg and made an apartment down there. I've told him I am caring for his house (fixing it up, repairs, etc) and immediately felt the "static" lift. But there is also a, what feels like female, force that follows me up the basement stairs. Call me crazy but I either throw an elbow as I reach the top, or (if noone else is home) talk some smack to it. Man, typing it out makes me realize how crazy it sounds. Oh well, it works for me. and like I said Jesus has my back...

I've been able to see things and layers of reality that others cannot since I was a child too. We moved every couple of years, so I got lots of different perceptions of energies hanging around houses.

What you need to know is that you have more power because you are incarnated in flesh.
You can tell it to leave and it has to. (Some return at first.....but keep on doing this until they don't.)
Imagine making, bottom and the 4 sides of the building.
If you're Christian, you could imagine a cross on each of the 6 planes (that make a box).
Tell whatever it is that it must leave now....before you turn your protection on- or burn in the light.
Imagine a cross (or whatever symbol) in the middle that turns on the protection.
Skeptics won't be able to make this work....because they'll spend all of their time 'debunking' it.
I've told children who see reptile men come out of their closets at night about this protection.
It works for them and it works for me. Maybe it will work for you.
I'm sharing. I won't defend any of this, nor justify it. Link? LOL.
Take it or leave it alone.....
Good Luck!

P.S. I am not Christian....just using an example that works for most people.

So it does actually work. Turning to jesus? How does one turn to jesus though? What if you're not aloud to express religious views in your home openly?

I don't know how to answer that. In my case, Jesus has been with me my entire life. The warmth and energy that made me safe. It doesn't need to be said "Jesus" though, just your perception of the positive light and absolute power. I don't enjoy expressing religious views anywhere, even in an anonymous setting. Because none of us KNOW, we just believe.

The "turn to Jesus" thing is bunk. If anything, the paranormal ghosty scary crap increased after I "turned to Jesus". I had spirits coming into my house, my mom (also a convert at the time) picked up a leech. It was not pretty. What you believe in and what potentially imaginary godhead you ask for help doesn't do you any good. (And this is coming from someone who believes in the teachings of Jesus...)

What I would recommend, from bout 9 years of dealing with this kind of thing for myself and others, is that you should 1. learn to meditate, particularly light meditations, 2. learn how to energetically protect yourself and your home. After you have 1 figured out, 2 is pretty easy.

I will reply with some more detailed instruction on those two points in a few hours, but for now I have to go to work.

Yeesh, people ask for help and all they get is evangelism thrown at them...

For someone who has no faith whatsoever, of course it won't work.. That would be like treating someone like garbage all your life and then asking them to give you 1000 bucks..

See its all energy, radiating, feeding, emitting..
So the house thrives on your fear, fear is a strong energy, not like love, but it is ummm... lets say vibratory, you can sense it, cant you? when your afraid iff there was some instrument for energy, you would see the meter like jumping rapidly, wouldnt you?

So with this in mind, take control of your reality, have no fear, because iff you are reality whats there to fear?
Make your reality what you wish of it, emit pure clean energy, imagine urself surounded by white radiating light, then spread it around the house, play with it at first, imagine it passing threw ur belly or your back, whatever.. when you feel it.. emit it, wrap your reality in clean energy.

A quickie conversion to rid a house of ghosts is about the same thing.


Expanding a bit upon kera said, banishing fear and emitting good vibes is a decent first step. There are two reasons for this.

First of all, negative entities and spirits do not like that. If you've got a bad 'un in your house, that's a major turn-off for it. It's a lot like turning a light on cockroaches, they're apt to scatter.

Secondly, a lot of geist type activity, that is, stuff moving around, is due to a "psychic" person with latent, improperly channeled ability. An agitated, untrained "psychic" person can cause all sorts of strange activity and generally produce an unpleasant vibe if they're fearful, depressed, stressed, etc, and aren't properly dealing with those issues. If that person is you, then it's a good shot that improving your mental and emotional state will make the activity stop.

Another good place to start is respectfully asking whatever else is inhabiting your home to leave. You can do this pretty simply by just saying aloud that though they are there, this is an abode of the incarnate and the living, and that their activity has gone far enough, you would like it if they would leave. Don't do it angry, don't threaten, do it calmly, and respectfully. Don't taunt them, don't yell, just be calm and assertive.

On to the meditation part. White light meditation is a staple if you've got anything paranormal going on in your life. A very basic form is as follows:

Pick a position to sit in that allows you to be relaxed, but not too relaxed, with your spine straight. You may close your eyes, or stare laxly at the wall, whichever allows you to visualize easiest.

Now, see in your minds eye a seed of white light in the center of your body. Watch it for a moment or so until you can definitely see it in your mind's eye. The seed of light is pure, clean, positive, loving energy, without any negativity or badness therein.

Next, with every breath, make this seed of light grow larger and larger, allowing the light to first fill up your whole body, and then to extend beyond it. Allow it to fill up the room that you are in, and then your whole house. Specifically see the light spreading to each and every room of your house, the hallways, the other bedrooms, the bathrooms, closet, kitchen, the whole thing, bit by bit. Feel the warm, white light filling you up and filling your home, and hold this visualization for a few minutes. Know that when you come out of the meditation, the light will remain, in you and your home.

Come out of the meditation slowly.

You should do that daily. Once you can do that with ease, append the following to your white light meditation:

Envision the light that has filled yourself and your home pushing out any dark or negative energies, spirits, and any other negativity, kind of like an avalanche of goodness and light pushing away all of the bad. Once your house is well and truly rid of any negative energy or spirit, picture a luminous sphere enveloping the whole place, a sphere of pure white light. The sphere is a protective barrier against anything negative or with negative intention that would enter your home.

This should also be performed daily, or at the very least every two days. Given a week or so, this ought to improve your situation significantly.

Now for the caveats and side notes...

1. If you don't believe it will work, it won't. The only difference between this and a daydream of this is WILL, and will is key. Not faith, faith requires...something else. Will is different. Will is setting an intent and making good on it. Know that you are doing these things when you're doing them.
2. Even with the aforementioned point taken care of, anything too excessively strong in comparison to you will be able to punch through your defenses and weather your white light purges. If that happens, or if something already present falls into that category, you will need to find somebody local to you who can come in and take care of business. Doing an internet search for paranormal investigation groups in your area and contacting those folks can be helpful in finding local help.
3. Spirits can't hurt you. They might scare the bejeezus out of you and feed off of that negative emotion, but they cannot really do anything to you. The not-so-negative ones, the "annoying" ones, you can usually live with if you can get past the gut fear. I have a couple of resident spirits in my house who I was just never offended enough by to get rid of, it's not so bad. After all, you always have company...
Strong, evil entities, the demonic, on the other hand, can do major damage, and some of them will be able to, say, punch you in the face or scratch you up, but they require a vessel through which to do any kind of serious harm. Protecting yourself with that white light can usually keep them at bay, keep them from doing anything to or through you. They require weakness to take you, and if you do not give them an opening they will find an easier target. Odds are you won't be dealing with anything stronger than that. Stronger than that can hurt you badly, even kill you, but it usually has bigger fish to fry, and it's kind of like worrying about getting a nuclear bomb dropped on your house to concern yourself with that.

Good luck.

Sorry, I haven't gotten back to this thread. My internet connection isn't the best. Now, I will say I have tried a mixture of what everyone recommended over the past few days and it has actually worked for me. My sister is still terrified of the garage, so I'm guessing it still feels terrifying but it doesn't affect me anymore. I rarely have incidents where I feel as if someone is staring at me at night now unless the door is open. It stays out of my room again thankfully.

The poltergeist situation is pretty much the same except we haven't had any big incidents. Which is a great thing. Bad thing was that they point me out as the cause. Since I'm the youngest daughter in my household among things... And my room is right above the kitchen and the garage. And these incidents started at the old house not here. But they started around the time my cousin moved in but they didn't stop even after he moved back out. He has never been in this house.

I'll see what I can do can do to improve things now that I know about it. I guess.

Anyways, what I have been really wanting to say is thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread. It has been really helpful for me. I'm going to go to sleep.

I would recommend if you are religious have a pastor or priest or any church leader come over and pray throughout the house. You can also pray yourself if you would prefer. I have also heard of people burning sage to ward off the spirits or others have just spoken to the spirits and asked them to leave and they have. There are several ways out there to do it. really it all comes down to what you believe and what you choose to do about it.

Having answerd your question now let me take a sidebar here and say you shuld set up a camera in the areas you feal most activity and leave it on over night and see if ya can catch something. You can also do the same with a tape recorder to see if you can pick up any sounds.
