Please read this, its what i posted just minutes a go..
Hello lyons666, I am so sorry you're going through all this with your children. I gather from your comments on the other ghostly thread that you
don't necessarily believe in religion, and the name you chose is a way of being sarcastic. Keep in mind that while religion is mostly a man-created
thing for control, the powers behind the faith are very real, just like the things that your family has been experiencing are very real. Some energies
may not be very nice at all, while others may be very benevolent. I've read your comments on the other thread, and I agree with some others'
comments and disagree with others.
First of all, let me say I don't think this is your grandmother. I didn't know her, but I would bet she was very sweet and child-like toward the
end. The elderly lady I encountered at my friend's house was very child-like. She was more afraid than anything else. I believe if your grandmother
is or has been earthbound, she wouldn't want to hurt you or your family. Also, she sounds like she had some knowledge of the concept of blessing
houses, and that it has to be done by the homeowner because that's the energy that's attached to the house. All I can do is offer advice, or maybe
try and offer explanations, but you have to be the one who decides what to take seriously and what to dismiss. The rest of us here on these threads
are not having your experiences, and we can't really know what you and your family have gone through, but most of us on here have had our own
experiences to draw from.
I did a little research on poltergeist activity and found they can be triggered by grief. Your children are about the right ages to be triggering
poltergeist activity, although they are certainly unaware of it! I don't think anyone would want these types of experiences and emotional
rollercoasters to happen to them on purpose. I also have some gut feelings that some of it could be triggered by your own grief over losing your
grandmother. I didn't find much information on the more serious side of poltergeist activity; most of it was associated with the more playful
I took care of my mother for several years before she passed away in 2006, and I was pretty depressed for over a year. My life revolved around her
doctor appointments, doing things for her, cooking for her... and then after she died I just kind of stood there with my hands up saying, "Okay, what
the heck do I do now?!?" Luckily we had discussed a lot about her not sticking around after she died, so I really wasn't worried over her being
earthbound. I did feel her around me a lot over the next few months, which was a pleasant surprise. She had a strong energy, and she was easy to feel
whenever she came around. Most of the strange and difficult times immediately after she died had to do with finances, so I really couldn't blame it
on my depression. I know I felt lost for quite a while before I started changing things up.
To wrap things up, it sounds like you're fairly knowledgable about being firm when you tell these energies to leave you alone... I'd keep doing that
as they crop up. I also had to evict a crotchety male energy from my house I moved into about a year after my mother passed away. It took him a month
or longer, but he eventually faded. He wasn't as aggressive as your energies seem to be though, so maybe they will disappear much faster if they get
the message. The hour-long crying session you mentioned may actually be a good thing, as it lets out the most painful memories. Holding it in just
hurts the person and makes the grief last so much longer. Have your children expressed their grief to you? They may be bringing a poltergeist energy
in without knowing it, by holding in their pain and not knowing how to talk it out or release it.
Lastly, I'm wondering about the "Aunt Rach" comment from your nephew, and the medium mentioning that same name. Perhaps she is still hanging
around, and is not a very nice energy to get along with. Are you aware of a Rachel, or could you find out of there is a Rachel that is connected with
your family, especially on your grandmother's side? Since it didn't start until your grandmother passed, maybe she was the "protection" that kept
her from wreaking havoc, and now she's taking out her rage or revenge on you. Your grandmother could have blessed her own house, keeping "Rach"
away, and once your grandmother passed on, that left the house wide open again. I'd check into that quickly if I were you!
I sincerely hope your situation improves, and if you don't mind I'll keep you in my prayers.
