I'm not computer savvy enough to tell you how to make these pictures fit
but it really would be good to see them ... however your description
was excellent I know exactly what you meant
and this is definately interesting.
I can't stipulate strongly enough how careful you both need to be when dealing with this ... but it's clear you plan on continuing no matter what
(in all honesty I would be doing exactly the same thing) so I'll offer any helpful advise I can ... not always easy when you cannot 'feel' the
place firsthand but if you can continue to give as clear descriptions as you did with the necklace then that will make it 'easier'.
Most people seem to think that ghoulies and ghosties only come out at night ... this is obviously not true and I feel that this entity can be active
at any time (day or night) ... he's sussing the situation out at the moment trying to get the measure of the people in the household (eg; your lady
is the constant occupier and you are the occasional occupier).
You mentioned in your OP that this property has been empty for long periods since the murder(s) took place ... and these 'empty' periods will have
allowed the entity to let his energies be absorbed by the property (in effect making it an extention of himself) ... structures are very good at
absorbing energies ... this is why a lot of what we recognize as 'haunted properties' can be reflected from the structure as images (re-runs of past
events) or feelings that can be almost tangible.
It's interesting and ironic to know that 'fear' feeds this type of energy and helps it to continue.
A couple of questions ... the answers could have important bearings on the way this is dealt with for the best and safest outcome;
1/ Can you find-out when the murder(s) took place (exact date would be great but year will do) ?
2/ Do they know who the guy was who commited the murder(s) (was he part of the family - father / husband / brother / lodger etc) ?
3/ Was he caught and if so what became of him (life sentence / death penalty / dead at scene etc) ?
4/ How long had the Mexican family been gone before your lady moved-in ?
The research of an investigation is vital so that you have some idea of what you are dealing with and can react to it accordingly ... if you don't
have time or just can't be @r$ed to do the research yourself I'm very happy to see what I can find out on your behalf if you feel comfortable
telling me your full address via u2u ... completely understand if you'd rather not but the offers there if you want to take it (I love researching -
must be my 'inner-nerd' trying to surface lol: )
You also mentioned that there is a closet that has been used to block the stairs and the loose board in the ceiling of the closet is the only access
point ... if you have a compass hold it inside the closet and see if it reacts erratically (you can try this is all areas of the house) ... if you
don't already have one it would be a real help if you can get one ... doesn't have to be expensive any cheap one will do the job ... it's just a
real simple way of giving you some 'visual' feedback.
I'm also trying to understand why the upstairs has been blocked off if the murder(s) took place in the kitchen ... where did you get this info from
Let us know what your next plan is we might be able to offer some advise.
