Very interesting OP and some excellent responses on one of the best ghost threads for some time on ATS, so well done to all who have contributed thus far.



First off, I believe the OP is genuine and what she says is going on at her home is actually happening.

Second of all, I believe at least some of these events are supernatural occurrences that simply defy our logical minds or attempts to explain on a rational basis.


It is no coincidence that ghosts and other spiritual entities have been a part of every culture, in every country , throughout the ages.



They are real. Even if we don't understand them.


My gut feeling is that if you don't think about them too much, these strange events will lessen or stop.



Good luck to the OP and please keep us posted on any new developments here on ATS.

How bad does the door want to open/close?

Have you tried a doorstop? Or does it push that out of the way? Or cause some other reaction?


It's not like it is slamming shut. If it was doing that, I would move out.


The times I watched it do this - it was just a slow, steady movement. I have not tried a doorstop yet, I want to see how often this happens.

My father's death was in 2004. I only mentioned it in the OP because while staying at my parents house after his death, he apparently closed a door in the house. It happened at night and neither my mother or myself closed it.

My father passed in 2004 and I mentioned him because he's the only spirit I know that closes doors (in 2004).

Could be him - I don't know.

My father died in February of 2004. The three people who died in the house died in May, September, and December.

I can think of no significance to dates with this.

Thanks for the response.

Sho here is a simple three step plan of what you do......

1. Set up a cam..

2. Set up a cam..

3. Set up a cam..

Nightvision preferrably or sleep with the lights on. Close all your windows so that you eliminate the posibillity of draft through the house.

Thanks Komodo,

Our activity comes and goes depending on what's going on in the house. We have had things disappear, only our items do not reappear. Good for your wife and the bobbins.

Our house has been quiet since 2004 and this is the first time I've had a door close by itself repeatedly.

Hopefully tomorrow when the husband returns, we can install a video camera to catch the door closing. The husband does not doubt what I am seeing, he wants to find out if when the door is being closed - if we are able to catch something on video that could explain it.

I will post video when I have it. Hopefully, the trolls will leave me alone at that point and I can have a serious discussion about what is happening.

Respect,
Rochester

Hi Rochester, Yes, I have had this happen to me as well. It was about 20 years ago and in a new dwelling so not figuring ghosts/haunting as cause. What it was is this, I used to always close the bathroom door at nite that was adjacent to our master bedroom. Odd thing started happening for a while...I'd wake up and the bathroom door would be open but the bedroom door would be shut instead. This happened a few nites now and then and then stopped.
It was very disconcerting. Hubby sleeps like a rock so I know it wasn't him..even asked him about it.


Another thing that has happened to me more than once, in the middle of the nite, I would hear 3 knocks on the front door. I'd get up, put on porch lite and no one would be there. We had a very, very long concrete drive way and no cars or people would be there. We lived way out in the woods/country and it was doubtful anyone was coming all the way to our isolated place to prank or whatnot.. I'd take my 45 side arm and check the yard and area and never saw anyone or anything.

Other "odd" thing...just before we moved from that property, the nite before, I heard scratching at our front door...sounded just like what our large dog used to do when she wanted in or attention. She had to be put down months before so that freaked me out. I checked right away...no animals on the porch or in the yard at all Did she visit us in spirit to say good bye?.


I have had the door knocking dealy happen just about every place I ever lived at with same result....even husband heard the knocks at times....weird.

One time, late at nite, our entire living room lit up like day...a brite flash...we both saw it. Got up and checked...no lights in the house had been left on to blow out, no transformer near our place, no lightning storm...never did figure out what that was. Take care, regards. J.


star for this!

interesting...the light flash in the living room was a hair raiser..

I have always told my husband - if we see them, I am out of here.


I'm not afraid, I do not get a sense of malevolence. It is just weird that it started happening this week.


Some preternatural powers start out benevolently and then switch on you, you might want to be aware of that, otherwise, could it be electrical energy?

Hearing the doorbell.. that would make me think that maybe something is trying to warn you, or alert you..

Considering all details and having had so many things happen to me that no one could possibly clear away as "house settling" or whatever. Due to the recent death I am convinced your Father wants you to know he is not gone as in totally gone. I would think that what I did speaking out loud at a place that had meaning to you both will give him the knowledge that you understand and he can move on.

I know it may not sound the same to you, but my kitty friend who lived with me 20 years died a really painful death. I felt very guilty along with my pain of loss because I had not taken her in to be put down and when she got so bad I could get no one to help her. I had to help her myself. The area of the garden where she died I did not touch for two years. I then went out one day and started weeding there and I started crying and remembering and I told her how sorry I was.

Suddenly on this warm day my breath started rising in clouds...I stood up and I laughed out loud and my breath just billowed up in fog like it was below zero. I said "kitty!" and it stopped instantly and I felt this feeling like she forgave me and did not hold the pain I put her through against me.

There is no explaining what happened I don't care who tries there simply is not an explanation other then beyond what we call natural.


ok .. that brought me to tears..

and I believe you! here's a hug from one you understands.. (((((((((((((Char-Lee))))))))))))

not trying to be a grammar Nazi, just re-posting for readability






I will reply in absolute sincerity, putting myself out there for ridicule, but I don't care because I know these experiences well, and they are real. I don't care for them at all, but have experience with them. I happen to come from a family of 'sensitives' and there have been many many incidents with 'discarnates' over the years.

I will come from that point of view, as that is what you're obviously suspecting yourself. In my experience unless it's a recently passed loved one (who often will linger for several days before truly 'passing' over), discarnates can be drawn or activated by intense emotion or upset. That's why teenagers so often have unusual experiences. Apparently some entities draw energy from emotion and turbulence and are drawn like a moth to a flame. Some of them don't know they are 'passed' , some do and have refused to move on or are afraid to.

My daughter has been a particular magnet for this phenomenon, as she is very sensitive and emotional. When she is in a turbulent phase they not only will plague her but even the people she associates with (people's cars will stop running if she's in them, keys will disappear, electronics will not work, etc). All this prompted me to study the subject and I seemed to be put in the position several times of 'helping' some of them cross over. It's actually a very dense universe full of life/energies, and it's amazing we don't see more, aside from the orbs and these occasional experiences.

Most people who are truly 'transitioned' to the other side, not earthbound, won't be bothering to do parlor tricks, unless they are getting your attention for a very purposeful reason, to reassure you etc. Discarnate entities are still stuck in the lower level emotions and attachments, whether grief over lost love, or fierce 'love' of some physical object or a place, or fear or anger. They can't read your mind as a true spiritual entity would be able to -- if you allowed it that is. If you want it /them out, you need to speak out loud and firmly. You can pray for them and ask your guides/angels to ask permission to their angels /guides to help them cross over if they want to.

In any event be firm that there is nothing for them here, that they need to move on, even escort them out the door literally. Doing a cleansing ritual like smudging or chanting, sprinkling salt, and asking for divine assistance will help. Was able to get a couple particularly troublesome folks to go doing these things. As another poster said, if you know the story of the individual, or have intuition about it, you can use symbols and rituals they would relate to. Look up Mary Ann Winkowski's writings on this topic, she has helpful information for anyone who wants to understand this. And another thing, learning about this phenomena drives it home how important it is not to be too greedy, negative or vengeful, or overly attached in any way, because I can't think of much worse than being an earthbound entity, stuck in an endless loop.

Sorry, didn't read all comments, (just the first page). But I have no answer really anyhow, Just wanted to give some suggestions.

First off, assume its not paranormal. This way it clears your head and lets you properly investigate it verses just toss the hands up and call it ghosts. (not saying it isn't, but starting there right from the beginning is pointless).

Check windows in your home...is there a new draft / open window somewhere that normally hasn't been? Is there a common thread (hot water running for instance) when it happens..hot water thing being just a example of something that is happening.
Is a new road opened up nearby that has trucks rumbling by? old floorboards? new pet? rewiring of something? Maybe the doorframe is slightly warped now for some reason?

I like the idea of video taping it. Just when it happens, run through a checklist of things going on at that time throughout the house...are the neighbors practicing their drumming in the garage next door sort of thing.
Also, nearby in a safe place, put a little candle up to detect wind directions. If its simply a draft (from say a unnoticed hole in the roof) you should be able to locate it.
Might be raccoons in the attic.

Concerning the voices from downstairs... it's theorized that occurrences like those are due to an overlapping of the past onto the present. A sort of imprint, supposedly.
As for the door, I'd suspect air pressure. Do you know if the air conditioner cycle is perhaps coinciding with the closings?

Memories of the dead are returning to the awakened.

I would not worry too much about this. They are not out to hurt you.

Sounds like a question for 411. Where are my keys ?

I woke up at this chicks house back in the 80s. Had to call 411
and ask where my sock was. Believe it or not the operater was a guy
and asked if she was awake. She was just coming around and turned over
as he was saying it's prolly underneath her. There it was.

I would steer clear of psychic's for the moment and ask for a friendly blessing on both the house and yourself and husband at the local church, has anybody you knew - a friend or relative, an acquaintance or old boy friend recently past on, it may be someone you have recently been thinking about and even if they past some time ago they some time's hear you because you are thinking about them but do not try to contact them merely accept it as a message for now and be careful, if things get in any way more strange or any further activity takes place like moving shadow's or unexplained light's then go see the priest or preacher as soon as possible and get that blessing upgraded to a full home blessing.

This may also help but I recommend a live blessing,
www.bing.com... 97621BA&first=0&FORM=NVPFVR

There are some benign and even good spirit's but best not take the chance, it is trying to open a door by closing a door to you, is probably harmless but a blessing will not harm anything of god so trust the priest and god bless.

Update
I have just read past your initial post and believe it may be your father, He may be worried about something, is there a source of possible ignition in the house, the gas or electric wiring, he may be trying to protect you as if there is you may inhale smoke in your sleep and the door may be the only thing that can keep you safe.
