Wow that's a really creepy story


It's so strange how nothing has ever happened before a year or so ago. Have you acquired an antique or other item that you can think of?

Has anyone been dabbling in the occult in your house?

Thanks for sharing!!


This Spring I purchased two musket slugs: one from the Civil War, found at Vicksburg, the other from the Revolutionary War, found at Battle Hill, N.Y. But the heightened activity started well before then, around Spring of 2011. I won't discount that they are a part of it, but I don't think so.

And nobody here is involved in the occult.

Hmm, why didn't you just unplug the TV when it first gave you problems?


It was for my son to go an watch TV with his friends or play with his Wii. And since it was only turning on by itself, it seemed innocuous enough. Creepy, yes, but it was also interesting.

If you have an iPhone - or even your wife and son possibly making three - you can download a free sleep recorder app. I guess an Android phone would have the same app. You turn it on before you go to sleep, plug it into the charger though, and basically it lays dormant until it picks up a noise then it records said noise. It’s meant as a bit of fun to record people who talk in their sleep, but I don’t see why you couldn’t use it for such purposes. Put one in your room, one in the kitchen and one in your son’s room and see what noises it picks up the following morning. I’ve put it on about five times and are yet to record me talking in my sleep. Only the sound of me moving around with the blanket ruffling. Or get a proper digital recorder, but then you’ll have eight hours of audio to fast forward whereas this only records when there’s noise and does nothing when there’s silence.

A hag, or "the Old Hag", was a nightmare spirit in English and anglophone North American folklore. This variety of hag is essentially identical to the Old English mæra — a being with roots in ancient Germanic superstition, and closely related to the Scandinavian mara. According to folklore, the Old Hag sat on a sleeper's chest and sent nightmares to him or her. When the subject awoke, he or she would be unable to breathe or even move for a short period of time.

Wiki

It's claimed to be sleep paralysis but I personally think that the old hag is what it was perceived to be in medieval times.

The friend of my wife that I mentioned was the daughter of a woman that was heavy into the occult. She was the best friend of my wife's mother, who told me about some of the stuff her friend was into. This man in black was a frequent visitor at their house. My wife was a child when she had her run ins with him, which is why she stays away from any kind of occult stuff today.

it sounds like an energy vortex is open ... now the fact that you have lived in the house for 14yrs without problem indicates that something / someone / or action has opened the vortex inadvertantly.



I've thought that myself, actually, though I didn't give it any real credibility. Not that I don't believe that these vortices exist, they're just exceeding rare, even more rare than hauntings themselves. However, sometimes when I would go up to the spare bedroom for any reason, I had this feeling that...I dunno...like the room wouldn't be there, but some other "place" was there. At those times I wouldn't even open the door. It was likely foolish and me just creeping myself out, but it was only occasionally and very intense.

Wow, fantastic! I had no idea that app existed. I have an Android phone and will search for that app as soon as I can. Thanks for the tip!

No worries. The one I have is Sleep Recorder App, and Android does have it. May cost a dollar or two, I can’t remember, but cheaper than buying a recording device.

constantly playre-runs of "Golden Girls" on another t.v. The entities either leave or lapse into a state of semi-comatose. Problem solved.

So are you going to try to do what Woody said and close up the vortex?

It seems to me that if you go ahead and try that phone app which allows beings to communicate they may never want to leave. It may also attract more entities, no?

How would this complicate your haunting?

Might want to think this through before going ahead with that app!

They can worry you and frighten you but cannot harm you. Tried speaking to them! And record it.... Just wondering why it started again....anyone worried about something? School, job, money etc? If all else fails I would call a Catholic Priest in....so are are trained for exorcism.

Hey there,

Couple questions, how old are people in the house? Mainly, I'm asking about your kids. That could be the poltergeist activity. I guess. That's what they attribute such things to. You can even attribute hauntings to imagination: paranormal.about.com...
Skeptical about it, to say the least though.

My next question is could your child have done something at a friends house involving the occult and it followed him home? I realize that it's kind of unlikely, and you wouldn't know about it, but all the same.

The beside shadow figures happen to my wife. I don't see them, but she says she'll wake up with them leaning over the bed looking at her, or standing beside me. It's terrifying.

The sleep recorder app is a good idea, use that.

Also, you mentioned your wife being tormented by a pale man in black. While I don't think it's related, PM me please. It's actually kind of important to me.

That's a really creepy story,and the reason i made an account here since i also want to share something.Since a couple of months something weird has been happening in my bedroom.First of all,some months ago i was going through some old pictures of mine when i was a child and came across one where i was 3 y old wearing the boxing gloves and togue from my uncle,on the left is my grandma looking at me ( no idea who's on the right ).

Now i have this picture hanging on a cabinet/case and alot of times the picture is hanging all the way to the left,or all the way to the right ,i uploaded the pics too show what i mean,now i did it myself offcourse just to show how far the pic goes.At first i seriously thought it was just draft because it didn't start off going that far,untill one day it was completely hanging like you see on the pic.And there is in no way that much draft in my room.It even happens when i have my windows closed and there's no draft all.

I tried ruling out every possibility ,I tried blowing against the photo so hard that i got dizzy but it kept hanging straight,i even took a ventilator set it to full power and blew it against the photo from all directions,it still kept hanging straight.So im really ruling out the possibility that it's just draft.

My mother also knows this and i was just saying to here yesterday that the picture didn't move in a while,she say maybe grandma got bored doing it ( My grandma died 3 years ago from a tumor ),i laughed,went too my room and the pic was hanging all the way to the righ again>I'm not easy to jump to the conclusion that it is my grandma..but im really really starting to ponder that it could possibly be,because..

Right before my grandma died we had a conversation about life & death etc and my mother was there aswell and i asked my grandma that when she has passed away that she could let us know something,so we know there is more then we think we do.I asked to make it something simple,to turn a clock,or move something but dont scare us,dont show yourself,just show us you're still here,and she agreed.

This shot right into my mind when i saw the picture hanging like that.Now im ope for everything but please dont come with draft because it really isn't.But could it be my grandma showing me proof,letting us know she's still here and there is indeed more ?

Sorry for my bad english,i'm from the netherlands ( yeah i should know better ).
Hope the pics turn out right. * Their wayyyyy to big i see,sorry
*
Thank you all.

It doesnt sound dangerous at this point, more spiritual curiosity pushing its limits than anything else but i would strongly suggest taking precautions just to play it safe. My suggestion would be:

1. Make it very clear to what ever is there that negative influences are not welcomed in your home. Spirits are the same as people, some good...some bad....and a whole lot in between.

2. If it seems like it is getting too aggressive for your attention, which it sounds like it may be, i would strongly suggest, regardless of your spiritual beliefs, to have the house blessed by the denomination of your choice to clear out any negative energy. There are many out there that will do this for you, or you could do it yourself with a little sage and frankincense. The important thing while doing this is to make a strong conscious choice you want the negative energy gone.

3. Do not start mounting cameras! I know everyone on here is dying to see proof, but the more attention you give to the entity, the more energy it will have to manifest itself. If you were certain it is a kind spirit this would be different, but with negative entities the last thing you want is to provide it with more of a reason to pester you. Not to mention, many experiments have proven that most true negative entities not only thrive on the attention, but will also disrupt any cameras or electronics anyways. So searching for your "proof" could very well further the problem.

If your wife has been receptive in the past, there could possibly be a link to her previous experience. Your son reciving the bulk of the visuals makes sense, as a childs mind is far more receptive. The idea that its all imaginary has not been echoed in his mind as much as an adult would.

Me and my family have dealt with similar occurrences for years. Some we encounter quite frequently, others just seem to be passing by. I for one was "teased" a little by an entity as a child just as your wife was, but after setting ground rules on what i was willing to put up with that entity has become one of my strongest spiritual guides.

The big thing to remember is this is your house, you make the rules and those not willing to follow must go.

I'm 46, my wife is 44, and my son is 14. I've considered the poltergeist possibility, but incidents haven't really been...poltergeisty.

My son only spends any significant amount of time with two friends on our street, both of whom have mothers that are pretty strict and pretty religious. I know the kids and there's no occult activity going on there.

The beside shadow figures happen to my wife. I don't see them, but she says she'll wake up with them leaning over the bed looking at her, or standing beside me. It's terrifying.

Maybe it would be easier to just unplug that TV. That would be my first response if it happened twice. Spirits can control microcircuitry, getting energy from people to work their deeds. The Tube TV probably doesn't have microcircuitry but they can control people sometimes to cause them to turn the TV on without their conscious knowledge. This is just speculation, I have observed some weird stuff happening and concluded this may be happening. Even seeing a ghost may not mean it physically exists, the image may be put into our mind by something or someone, either living or in the past. Crystals can store information, any crystal will do. I don't know if programs can be run with crystals, but giving energy to something that has knowledge can possibly cause a sequence to happen.

I sense things and try to explain what causes them to myself. I use science to try to explain them using possibilities that can exist. I have no way of verifying what I say, it is pure speculation. I know that there are many people who use stones of various sorts to structure their lives. Why do we wear jewelry, why do we look in a mirror made of glass. Why do we desire crystals of sorts as precious artifacts. Energy is stored in crystals at a certain frequency, this helps balance us also. Does it also do more? Do these diamonds record part of our consciousness? It is hard to know because nobody is studying this with the ability to test it.

Unplug the TV. Vibration can make the spring move as can energy from somewhere. Is there a heat source near the spring by the door that can be causing a frequency to form to vibrate it. An increase in hearing can also happen in certain frequencies by exiting the lobes of the hearing sector of the brain somehow. It would have to be some energy source at a specified frequency that is exiting this section of the brain, this would explain the cats hearing the spring as well as yourself. Maybe the spring has always been vibrating and you could not hear it. Maybe your cats have noticed it before and went to look at the spring but you were unaware of this behavior because you did not hear it....Cats do strange things all the time and maybe they have a basis.

I'm just wildly guessing, trying to explain what you are speaking about. I sense that these things are happening from your writing, at least you perceive they are happening. The voice the child talks about could also be a frequency coming from somewhere, energy vibrating something in the house. Mankind knows less about reality since the sciences have screwed up our observational abilities. There are ten thousand times the amount of things we know to learn yet. Thinking we know something often keeps us from knowing it. Maybe there is a short in that tv that is causing all these weird things, unplug it.

You assume it is a bad haunting. But do you have deceases relatives that maybe trying to reach you?

You can start getting answers by doing property research.

Poltergiests are caused by teenagers. Their own overactive brain causes the activity.

I had three teenagers in my house, I was the youngest.
There was a lot of stress and strife as it was families being combined.

And a lot of the things would happen that you mentioned.

They thrive on energy more than attention, it seems. I would imagine it's probably not a malevolent type of thing, simply because the family doesn't seem like they're experiencing any adverse effects. They're not exhausted all the time, they're not getting really mean or irritable towards each other. Etc.

Problems with TV sets are common during haunted house cases. Entities need some kind of electricity to drain (to maintain energy) and this often involves electronic appliances. This also seems to allow them to manipulate these devises (perhaps after given some practice.) Someone suggested unplugging the TV set, but for me this falls under the category of ignore it and hope it goes away. I'm sorry, but what you've described here is a spiritually charged environment where the activity is strengthening. Cutting off power to the TV will just force it to find mischief in some other way.

It's also been suggested that you skip investigating and go straight to finding the cause (which would involve a medium of some kind.) This is a matter of perspective. If this is occurring due to demonic activity, you will likely need a priest to perform an exorcism (or shamans, Wicca and other spiritualists who are qualified to do this, but it's usually easiest to find a Christian priest.) Catholic Priests are best-known for performing exorcisms and those with experience have a lot of knowledge on the demonic. The catch is: ever since The Exorcist was released in 1973, creating a panic and public interest in demonic activity, the Church has upped its requirements. All possibility that it could be psychological or have another explanation must be ruled out. In short, evidence must be gathered, and this is where an investigative team can be very handy. Also bear in mind, some investigative teams have psychics.

As for what kind of phenomenon you are dealing with, early on in your description it sounded like a lonely ghost or mischievous spirit, but the part about taking on the form of your wife and trying to smother you makes this much more serious than that. Whether or not you're (most likely) dealing with a ghost or a demonic might be answered by information all ready at your fingertips:

1. Were there signs that the house was haunted when you moved in, or early on?

2. Were the conditions of the home altered in any way before these events began occurring? Were walls painted, rug floors pulled up, doors or windows replaced, etc? (This could stir awake something that was before dormant in your home.)

3. Have you ever felt the presence of negative energy or anything which felt evil or sent cold shivers up your spine? Any feelings of not being wanted there (if so, when?)

4. Has anyone in your home recently played with a Ouija board, performed a séance or experimented with any other occult-like practices, whether inside or outside your home? It sounds like this all started with your son. I’d ask him if he had done anything listed above, perhaps with his friends (perhaps for fun, thinking nothing would come of it.)

I would take the recent attack upon you seriously. Actual physical (and psychological) harm can be done to you and to your loved ones. You need to protect them as best as you can, and this begins by A. Exploring the questions I just listed and B. Seeking help or advice from a psychic or an investigative team. If it is demonic, you will need to compile evidence. A priest can perform a cleansing ritual, but understand, this will either drive the entity away or provoke it (which means that it comes back much angrier and demonstrating more power than before (which will demand an exorcism as quickly afterwards as possible.) This is why I’d recommend gathering evidence before even doing a cleansing.

If it is an angry ghost, then a medium could certainly help. The ghost might simply be afraid to step into the light (to pass on.) Sometimes this is due to a fear of God’s judgment after they do, and other times it’s because they refuse to accept that they have passed on or for some other reason desire to remain where they are. What you are describing is a kind of takeover, a power struggle for your home, and it’s getting dangerous. You must take this seriously and begin looking for professional help.

Try searching online for psychics (who mention that they've dealt with paranormal activity) and/or paranormal investigators in your area. When you talk with them by phone, you can get a sense of each other and see if they seem right to you and vice-versa. Just be honest and tell them everything.
