Daughter Hearing Strange Noises In Room
Posted 01 May 2017 - 10:14 AM
My elderly mom lives with me also. She's commented in the past that she's heard sounds like something falling over in the kitchen. She's gone to look and everything is in place. I am beginning to think that it's not just my daughters imagination! She's so nonchalant about it. I asked her if it scared her when these things happened and she just said that she was kind of in disbelief so didn't really get scared until it was actually time to go to bed. That's when she calls me to come in there. It's rather scary though because it seems like things are escalating and happening more frequently!

How long have you lived in your home?
Has anything changed in the last few months?
Bring something home from the thrift store?
Practice the occult in any form?
Try a Ouija board?
Contention in the home?
Are you remodeling your home in any way?
Does your daughter have any psychological problems?
Is your family religious at all?
Any details would be appreciated.

She was diagnosed with general anxiety disorder years ago. Nothing new has been brought into our
home. We're not religious. More just agnostic. Haven't practiced the occult in any way. We've been here
For 11 1/2 years now.

90's. Only one other owner. None of us has ever liked the house. Nothing I can put my finger on.
It's just never seemed like home. My Mom has said from day one that she's heard things. I never
have other than the bumps from the kitchen area. My daughter hasn't either until recently.

It sounds to me like contention in the home may have attracted something in. And right now, this presence is testing the waters (so to speak). And it definitely wants to make it's presence known. Anxiety issues alone can make one vulnerable. Then add contention to the mix and we have an invitation of sorts.
Is your daughter on any type of medication? If not, I would talk with her doctor and touch bases with him/her with her present status. Like you say, she's going through puberty and there are some anxiety issues. So this could all be expected. But in your case, it has apparently attracted an unseen being (not good).
Work on ways to reduce the contention by 65% as soon as possible (if you can). Make sure you talk to her doctor. And if she has medication, make sure she's taking it as prescribed, especially during this time.
And assuming this is an unseen presence, it's important to ignore it for the most part. But in you're case, I would suggest taking the liberty of proclaiming to it that it is not wanted and to leave your family alone. This step seems to work better for those that are religious... but it should still help. Just revoke whatever invitation it thinks it has by telling it to leave and do so in no uncertain terms. Just don't yell at it and don't be demanding. And do it right after you experience evidence of it's presence. But both you and your daughter should only do it once. We don't want it to think you are attempting to open up a line of communication with it because you are not.
And lastly, try not to talk about it unless you are away from the home.
We can come up with a strategy for your particular case... and I'm sure other members here will want to clime in and help with that.

My advice is to make your home as bright and cheerful as you can, clear any clutter, keep the blinds open to let the sun in, when no one is watching tv, turn the radio on, sing and dance and stuff, have a family game night. It seems to want the negative, so fight it with the positive.
Maybe enroll your daughter into a self defense class, like karate or tai-chi, both can help her control her anger and find inner peace, and feel less vulnerable. Take a class together, it can be anything, painting, knitting, sewing, martial arts, or even try out for a local play.
I agree you should take your daughter to your doctor, general anxiety can sometimes be a symptom of other mental illnesses or chemical imbalances, both can make her more vulnerable to bad things, and make here mood shift to the extremes.

Oh boy....not only have we talked about it but she even reenacted the doll episode for me and my dad. To add to that....she said that she had music playing in her bedroom..she was in the bathroom and heard a creepy laugh. She came out of the bathroom...sat down at her computer and a few mins later the doll started swinging around.
We won't be talking about it at home anymore!
Sorry to go on and on. It's just good to talk about it. So thank y'all for some very good advice!

What's the underlying cause of her chronic anemia?
How many of these health issues started within the last year or two?
Maybe someone here on the forums can come up with some natural treatments for stress and high anxiety. We particularly need to find some safe practices for your daughter. And it wouldn't hurt to involve yourself as well and team up. I'm thinking Yoga perhaps.... but there's probably many possibilities to consider.

I'm glad she is not scared tonight, and I hope she can sleep through the night.

Please keep us posted on any activity.
And I would suggest you keep a log. Write out each episode in your log... but only a paragraph or so per episode. And at some point, you can use it to compare events and develop a plan of action, if needed.
And please consider what Frootloops and I have shared with you as you tackle this situation.
Any other members wish to chime in? : )

The spleen normally removes old and/or damaged red blood cells from the bloodstream. However, when the spleen enlarges, it traps and stores an excessive number of red blood cells, causing anemia. Sometimes, the spleen also destroys white blood cells and/or platelets. This process creates a vicious circle: the more cells the spleen traps, the larger it grows, and the larger it grows, the more blood cells it traps and destroys.

I know, and it's rather torturous... it was also the cause of her gall bladder being removed. I did end up researching all of it last night. And I can definitely see a reason for the stress and anxiety. I was researching to rule out any "entity tampering" and that was easy to rule out considering that the hereditary spherocytosis is congenital.

That's quite a load for a girl that age to haul around with her.
I agree with everything that Jim said. Protect yourselves. Protect your house.
Revoke any invitations to anything real or imagined and then seal it with belief
and faith in God as you understand him/her/it.
I love it that you mentioned Meditation to which Jim agreed.
That has really helped me in clearing my mind and helping me gain insights.
A powerful Mantra that can protect you against Evil is:
OM Dum Durgayei Namaha
Peace be with you all.

And just to cross it off the list, does anyone in the household have Bipolar?
Feel free to address this in a private message to me if you would rather respond that way.
Thank you for your thoughts on this, Captain... I always appreciate your input.
