dalia88:  Okay good! What about getting a little security camera/phone ap to see if anything weird happens while you are gone? Or a digital recorder, let it run all night and then listen to the audio see if there is anything creepy sounding.

Yea, I’m a believer.  I haven’t seen one myself, but I have friends and family – including my Fiance – who I trust and believe who have.   And there are so many things that science can’t explain that I don’t think it’s unreasonable or strange that the existence ghosts is one of them.  

A few days after my FI’s father died, my Fiance saw him walk into our house (my FI’s mother still lived here, long before I met my FI)  through the front door.  My Fiance looked at him and said “Dad, what are you doing here?”  His dad answered “everything is going to be okay” and disappeared.  My FI’s son swears that his parents are still here, and he (the son) has stories of hearing them when we’re not home.  I’ve never seen or heard anything suspicious, but that may be because I never knew his parents so they have no reason to “talk” to me.  

My aunt and uncle live in a house outside of Cleveland that is 100+ years old and once burned down, killing at least one child.  Over the last 30+ years, they have seen the child ghost several times, but nothing “bad” has ever happened.

And I have very good friends who live in a 200+ year old house in Boston, and they don’t know if anyone has ever died there, but they have some crazy stories, all harmless, but crazy nonetheless – things like electronics turning on by themselves (their wiring is updated so it shouldn’t be happening) and their belongings being re-arranged after they walk out of a room.  

If I were you, I would smudge / sage.  And I know it sounds crazy, but I would also directly talk to the ghost.  Tell him that if he doesn’t scare you, you can live with him.  That’s pretty much what my friends did, and it worked for them.

I’m not really religious but I do know that my parents are Christians and I have NEVER felt anything sinister in their home, same goes for my friends who are Mormons, their house always felt safe to me. 

One house we lived in growing up had been burnt down terribly in a fire some years before, 2 little girls died in it. Everyone who lived there before us had ended up moving out because they would hear children screaming and crying at night and they’d see children’s shadows at the top of the stairs, we lived there for many years and my family never experienced anything.

I do think there might be something in this sort of thing. My previous employer lived in an old schoolhouse and he and his wife used to interact with the ghosts. They’d knock and he’d knock back. They’d rearrange pebbles in his bathroom. He thought it was great fun. I was skeptical until one day we went to open his shop (located on a historical street in my town which is known for hauntings) and things had been moved around and rearranged. That freaked me right out.

Girl, MOVE! I’ve never experienced the paranormal, but I think it’s real to some extent. I believe that people who don’t die peacefully or who have “unfinished business” in this world, like a person who committed suicide, can leave a malicious presence behind. This isn’t like some elderly person who lived a long and full life and who died peacefully in their sleep…it sounds like there is something malevolent going on in your apartment, and you don’t want to be there if/when it escalates.

dalia88:  A lot of folks are suggesting a smudge. I guess you could try it. If you don’t know about smudging, look up how to do it on the internet. Given how small your place is, it will be really easy. BUT — there is a risk. Sometimes that can just stir stuff up further. Which is why I originally suggested you try ignoring it for awhile.

I believe you and I definitely believe in ghosts and spirits. I think potentially my parents house is haunted by a little girl. They have one wall in their house that was built from reclaimed church bricks. when we were in our teens my sisters and I were left alone for the weekend. My sister decided she was scared so wanted to sleep in our parents bed until they came home. Anyway so I stood in the doorway making fin of her like all big sisters do. She says she’s scared of the ghost girl. so I was being silly and pointed into the hallway and said ‘oh yeah I see her… I’m soooo scared’ or something. Next thing the light globe in the hall light explodes!!! No one had touched the switch! Scared me so much but I learned my lesson! Never make fun of a ghost!!

alamana: What I really wanted to say after I read your replies was wow! Can I be your apprentice? And “that’s so cool!” I’m majorly creeped out by this thread but the fact that you can pick all of that up from her writing is amazing.

 

To the OP: I havent seen anything since I was a little girl, but I do sense/perceive energies. And I could not, for the life of me, live in a place where those vibrations made me feel scared or unsafe!

I’m a big believer as well! Here’s my experience:

We always believed that my historic childhood home was haunted as we knew that one of the previous residents of the house committed suicide (in my room, no less). The same spirit seemed to have followed me when I left home for college. My roommate and I saw our electronics being turned on and off by itself, channels changing, noises, our decor and other items being rearranged, etc. One day, we had the brilliant idea to ask the ghost to prove himself. We tied a scarf around the bedpost and said aloud, if there is a spirit here, move this scarf to prove to us that you are here. My roomie and I then left the dorm room for a couple of hours- we made sure that the door was locked, and no one else but us had access to that room. We were together the whole time. When we got back, the scarf that had been tied to the bedpost was folded neatly and placed on top of the bed.

He followed us into our next apartment. By that time, we were so used to him that we just spoke to him as normal as tho he was really there and politely asked him not to do things that would bother us. After acknowledging his existence and not feeding him any more fearful negative energy, he disappeared after a while. Maybe try this method and see if it works for you as well?
