I have been an avid reader on this forum for a little while now. I am absolutely in awe how nice, helpful, and non-judgmental everyone here is. I feel as if I already know everyone or at least some by their help with others.
Here’s my story:
I have lived in a house for over 30 years that has some frequent and some infrequent visitors and two residential ghosties, one residual and one intelligent.
When I was 4 my mother, younger brother and I moved in this house with my new stepfather (who owned the house about 10 years prior to marriage to my mother) and his 3 kids. It’s a small wood frame house that is 3 bedrooms, we were packed in like sardines but happy for the most part.
Things were always odd, items disappearing and then returning in odd places, usually not where they would normally belong. For example, jewelry was missing and showed up in a kitchen drawer or eyeglasses missing and reappearing in mail box… sometimes one of us kids were blamed or we joking blamed our “ghost”. Doors opening and shutting, noises, creeks and groans etc. We had a gutted antique Victrola wind-up phonograph that I would hear playing in the middle of the night. It had not been a working record player in at least 40 or 50 years at the time.
The house itself was built in the 1950’s by an individual and was built as a rental property for workers coming in to the area for the aluminum plant. In the late 1960’s he sold it, my father bought it in 1960-something and no one but our family has lived there. To my knowledge and research no one has “passed” in the house. The land is a different story; I cannot find much history on it other than it may have been farm land. Although few miles north-west from my town was a little township that was established in 1831 and was raided and destroyed in 1840 by the Penateka Comanches. Those who escaped did so by small boat or a schooner in the bay. They never rebuilt and moved 3 ½ miles south to establish our town.
Our other worldly residents are the residual lady – “she’s” white wispy shadow, she mostly paces around. I catch “her” out of the corner of my eye or when I am in my kitchen cooking because she floats thru. She isn’t freighting at all. We have a young male; I would guess around 9-11 years old. He’s a little playful guy. He seems to be responsible for missing baubles and such. He would play with my kids toys when they were small, ding-dong ditch the doorbell, spook guests staying over, nothing majorly or over the top theatrical scary. Just bothersome sometimes. He likes to taunt my husband a little, like patting his shoulder or brushing up against him in the hallway, pulling his toes or tickling his feet when he’s in bed. He is also responsible for giving us a startle with disembodied “hellos” occasionally. My mother tells him to stop being spooky and it stops for a while. He is reminded that this is “our house” and he can stay as long as he behaves himself.
For the infrequent visitors – we have one that is really nasty. When I say nasty this thing is spooky.
It makes you feel drained, angry, hateful, and all other negative feelings. It feels like it crawls in bed with me, when I feel it close to me I immediately feel the negative and hear a buzzing sound like bees or insects and I feel like I am wearing a sweater that just came out of the dryer and fully charged with static electricity. It’s grabby and touchy and I don’t like that.
Thankfully I can tell it to “GO AWAY” this is my home or this “YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE” and it leaves for a long while. I have used sage on it, hematite, seal of Solomon; I was also advised to use sea salt and dill around doors and windows to keep “evil spirits” at bay.
I also have a shadow figure that is very dark and very tall. I have only caught a glimpse occasionally out of the corner of my eye or when I first walk into a room and in an instant it’s gone. Until a few weeks ago that is. I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and on my return to the bedroom which unlike the rest of the house I keep it very dark. When I opened my door the lamp light from the hallway illuminated part of my bedroom and I saw it; a dark, tall shadow person standing on my husband’s side of the bed. It looked to be over 6 ½ feet tall with what seemed to look like an elongated head or tall hat. It was bent over my husband and seemed to be “studying” him.( I didn’t feel spooked when I saw it, it didn’t give off a malevolent vibe. ) The bedroom door shut behind me with just a little crack (so my cat can come in and out) so there was a very little crack of light. I went to my side of the bed, it stood straight up and seemed to be surprised at me being there. It made me feel like it was looking directly at me. It floated around the bedpost and crossed the end of the bed on the floor still watching me watching “him” and it floated out the wall to my left. Then again last night I woke up to go to the bathroom and there it was again, stooped over my husband just watching him. (I am a very light sleeper and when I wake up I am usually wide awake) I sat straight up and watched it again. It looked like it lifted an arm and held its hand up, palm out fingers spread wide like it was saying “hi”. Again, it’s not scary, just a little un-nerving at first. Then it disappeared or faded out.
I was just wondering if anyone else has come across this, where a “shadow figure” or spirit, ghost, or whatever we need to label it just seems to be studying us.
I also want to add, I do not try to communicate with them. I do have runes, several decks of tarot cards, pendulum to scry with blessed mirror. I have never used any of these to communicate in my home.
