I hope you feel more at peace soon. I'm sending you positive energy and imagining your space filled with the white light of the Holy Spirit. It's
hard on you when you don't feel safe in your own space.
The lady who passed away there may still be hanging around to watch over you, as some have said on here. I had a house that was still visited by the
previous owners, an elderly couple who loved their house. I saw shadows on the wall as they peeped around looking at this stranger who was in their
house, and I knew they were just curious.
As soon as I saw their shadows I was terrified, because I thought it was flesh & blood people who had broken in on me. Once I realized no one was
there, I understood that they were just curious. I felt no ill will towards me at all, so I didn't mind them being there. Although I've experienced
stuff like this for years, I do remember when it all started and how unnerved it made me. I had no one to share my fears with, so hopefully starting
this thread will help you by having a place to unload.
I've helped two spirits to cross, and the most recent one was an older lady in her 80s. She was so scared... I felt so sorry for her I had to help
her. I will send the spirit in your rental loving thoughts as well, and pray for someone to assist her (or him) to the other side.
This is what I hope you will do. When something happens again, say, your fan turning off on its own... instead of giving in to that immediate feeling
of panic, focus on the feeling in the room. Almost everyone can feel the energy in a room; most just don't bother. Watch Pauline - is she fearful,
curious, or calm? There is so much fear associated with first experiences like this. It's easy to get carried away, but if you stop for a second and
notice what's going on around you, it helps to get yourself stabilized a bit.
Take the incident for what it is, at face value. I once had a spirit or ghost blow in my ear, quite hard. It startled me, because I didn't hear
anyone come up behind me, and when I looked there was no one there. I immediately knew it was paranormal, and it made me laugh. I didn't focus on the
fact that there was an unseen energy with me, I know that's a normal occurrence with everyone (we usually don't sense them).
I've told people about this, and they are shocked that I didn't run out of the room screaming. I say look, they blew in my ear. What does that
usually mean, a threat? No, they're being playful. If you can wrap your head around the idea that they may simply be playing with you, or trying to
communicate and say hello, it takes away a lot of fear.
Of course they may also be trying to warn people of something. Do you know if the electrical system is safe in your rental? That's what I thought of
when you said she turns your fan off and sets the smoke alarm off. If it is one of the alarms that is battery operated, she may be draining the
batteries to try and build up some strength, and the alarm is set off because the battery is low. On the other hand, if it is hard wired, there may be
something weird in the wiring.
This could cause the alarm to go off, or the fan to quit. She could also be manipulating those things to warn you of a possible problem with the
wiring. Not sure why this popped in my head, but do you know of anyone who could check it for you? Maybe report strange interruptions or surges in
power to your landlord and let him handle it?
The guy across the street makes me nervous too. It's possible he is having trouble dealing with finding her, or he could have been involved somehow,
or he may have even cared for her. If you are allowed to install additional deadbolts on your doors, it might not be a bad idea. I don't want to
scare you to death, but it doesn't hurt to be careful. How does Pauline react to him, or has she been around him at all? She will be your biggest
indicator. Don't sell her short (no pun intended!) because she's small. Smaller dogs can be very vocal in their opinions!
I do wish you the best in dealing with this situation. If she is upsetting you this much, she needs to move on. I doubt she is wanting to upset you or
frighten you; she is trying to reach you and she's using the only methods she can. Your Native American friend may be of the most help by cleansing
your space for you.
By the way, DarkBlade's full name is DarkBlade71. I saw where someone had mentioned him earlier. He's fantastic, and usually has a way with helping
you see the situation more clearly. Great sense of humor as well. Sled735 is a great friend of mine, and she will also help you in any way she can.
She's been dealing with situations like this for a while too.
God bless you and bring you peace!
