So I have never had a paranormal experience until I moved to Illinois last year and I've fumbled my way through the experience.

I unfortunately leased this home after moving late in the year and had to scramble for a lease to register my two youngest kids into school. While my boyfriend and I did the walk through with the agent I didn't feel anything weird but the leasing agent did ask if there was anything that put me off about the house because I initially said I was going to keep looking around. At that time I didn't think anything of the comment . I would later find out that this house was known as being haunted.

So the first night me and my two little ones stayed there I woke up late in the night and heard a man and woman talking, it was too muffled to understand. We had just drove 14 hours to get back to Illinois and I fell back to sleep chalking it up to the neighbors (who are pretty close to my house) talking outside.

The second night I woke up at 2am when I received a text from my boyfriend who had returned to Italy and was falling back asleep when I heard a voice above me say "I said go". I was immediately awake again. I leave the bathroom light on in the master bedroom and looked around to find nothing. My kids and I shared a small mattress and there was nothing else in the house as our household goods were not delivered yet. My mind went through all the possibilities of what could have made that sound and came up blank. I eventually fell back asleep.

The night after that I left all the lights on in the house and locked the bedroom door and put a bean bag chair in front of the door. I know the logic behind it isn't there but it made me feel better to have something there. Well same time at night I was woke up to the sound of the bean bag being hit. The night after that a loud bang next to where my head was laying on the floor. 02:20 was the magic time for this ghost.

I was such a mess from the constant waking I decided to abandon the master bedroom and move us into the second bedroom. Things were much better during the night after that.

But then other things started happening earlier in the day when my little ones could notice. I had a cup of coffee before bed and left the cup with a spoon inside it in the sink and took the kids to the bedroom to get settled, we were watching tv when we heard the ting of the spoon clang against the cup. Then a week later we we're getting ready to leave for school and we stopped at the front door to put my son's lunch in his bag when the tv turned on by itself.

I hear footsteps at night every so often. I'll hear small things being dropped at night but won't find anything in the morning and one night I was walking past the basement door in the kitchen and it opened by itself. There's the back entrance to the house down a small landing from this door so I yelled because I wasn't sure if it was a person opening the door or the ghost. I ran and grabbed my phone, had the flashlight and 911 dialed with my finger hovered over the call button as I walked up to the door to close it. The back door was shut so I shut the door and went back to bed.

I asked a friend about what I should do, I was so scared to do anything to anger what was in the house that I didn't even hang any of my house decor on the walls. He told me to establish that it was my house and finish decorating and when it did something to tell it to stop.

I was home sick one day and I was sitting at the kitchen table slicing some apples and I had the radio on loud. I remember thinking that the music was going to wee it off and it did. I had ceramic pumpkin as the centerpiece of the table and it pounded on the table to hard all the pumpkins clanged against each other. I yelled , "Stop it, I don't feel good and you're not being nice." It stopped .

Anytime something happens it's usually quite for a few days to a week. Trying to make the house as habitable as I could (because haunting isn't a legal reason to break a lease :( ), I open the blinds as soon as I wake up, open windows as the weather permits, have pleasant smelling air fresheners to get rid of the musty old house smell, and will say the Lord's Prayer in my head as I walk throughout the house. I'm Catholic and have crosses through the house now and my boyfriend sent me blessed crosses that I have in my bedroom and living room (this helped quiet things down a lot).

But I have deployed, my kids are staying with their dad and the house is empty for the next four months. I'm wondering if things are going to get worse as soon as we get back in there and it's going to back to square one establishing that it's our house again? I didn't have it blessed so I'm definitely thinking about doing that and have made arrangements to start a move to base housing the month after I get back stateside. Is it possible that it will cling to something in my house when I move? The master bedroom is where I have stored all of the boxes of household goods that I haven't unpacked and it's where the most stuff has happened. Is there anything I can do to make sure it doesn't attach to my belongings? My kids are scared to move room to room by themselves and I have to even escort them to the bathroom. I'm a continent away stressing about this darn house. Any advice please!

Hello and welcome to the boards :)

I am sorry you had some frightening experiences.

I feel your friend has offered some good advice and already you have taken control of your space :yes:

So I would suggest to continue with what you are doing; be assertive.

It seems to me their goal is for you "To go" so I don't feel it is something that wants to tag a long when you leave; if that is your intention.

I don't feel anything negative especially when it stopped its activity when asked.

I can understand being frightened by unexplained activity, I also would find it fascinating. What you've described doesn't sound malicious at all, just playful or looking for attention.

Do what makes you feel safe, personally I would try interacting more because I'm curious, but I get that it may not be a good idea in a place you're living in either. I'd probably carry on one sided convos, like they're an invisible roommate! ;)

I highly doubt that it will attach to your personal items when you move, however it is possible. It does sound like something is more attached to the home than anything. I recommend finding some white sage and burning it in every room of your home before you move just to clear the energy while you move your stuff out. This way it is not around when you move your stuff to a new home so it can't be attached to anything.
Love and Light,
