Is My House Haunted?

If you're anything like me, one of the searches in Google you might type could be "how to find out if my house is haunted". Well, I don't need to search for information on this topic any longer, as I have developed my sensitivity and knowledge on the paranormal throughout my years. But maybe you're truly wondering if your house is indeed haunted...maybe you need some information to aid you in confirmation that you live a haunted house.

In this hub, I will give you personal stories of my own experiences with haunted houses, as well as identify some of the main signs to aid you to determine a conclusion to "how to find out if my house is haunted".

Just for a frame of reference to confirm that I know what I'm talking about with ghosts and haunted houses in general, the picture to the right is a real picture of me in 2001...with unexplained mist in front and around me. If you look towards the bay window, where the dogs are playing, you'll see a red circle that I have drawn around what we believe to be the ghost of a little boy who died in this house. This was not a picture with double-exposure and no one smoked in the house. We're not sure what the mist in front of me is though...

Signs that Your House Is Haunted

You hear footsteps at night, things just don't feel do I know if my house is haunted? Do the footsteps count? Does it count if my house is super old? How do I find out if my house is haunted?

In my lifetime, I have lived in at least three haunted houses...all of which were a minimum of sixty years old. Keep in mind though that not every older home is going to be haunted. Also, your house doesn't have to be old to be could be brand spankin' new...just built yesterday and be haunted. So to conclude this thought process, the age of your home has nothing to do with whether your house is haunted or not.

So let's start with some REAL signs that your house could be haunted. Because there are SO many signs to give you in answering "how to find out if my house is haunted", we will split them up by exploring signs for hauntings via the five senses.


  • objects seeming to be lost, then pop up in very obvious places
  • shadows appear or move when nothing or no one else is in the house to create shadows
  • outright sighting of a mist or person in your home or around your home or an unidentifiable figure
  • you've seen objects move such as doors opening or shutting with no one to move them
  • pictures of ghosts or mists or recorded videos of ghosts or ghostly activity (such as the video to the right)
  • frightening out-of-the-ordinary nightmares that seem to recur and come in patterns: sleep paralysis and sleepwalking could come as a side effect or in correlation to these nightmares
  • flickering lights, lights turning on and off by themselves
  • flickering televisions and radios; channels and stations changing by themselves; changes in electric appliances
  • your animals react to something unseen in a room; dogs bark at the air or cats meow or hiss at the air


  • thumping sounds like footsteps on steps and floors, or even thumping sounds on walls or ceilings
  • scratching sounds on walls or ceilings
  • disembodied voices - screams, calling of names, cries, moans, recorded EVPs


  • strange odors or scents emanating from particular rooms with no other explanations
  • odors could include bad odors such as sulfur, death smells (rotten smells) or could be sweet smells such as floral perfume scents or smells of food such as cupcakes or bacon


  • some experience a metallic taste in their mouths when encountering certain malevolent spirits/ghosts

Touch or Sense

  • hairs raise on the back of your neck
  • you get chills when it's not cold in the house
  • cold spots or unusually warm spots
  • a sense of someone watching you
  • feelings of discomfort or unsettling feelings
  • physical feeling of being touched, grabbed, choked, or even attacked

There are many more signs that you could be in a haunted house; however, these are some of the main signs to confirm and how to find out if your house is haunted. Keep in mind that you could be experiencing only one of these things and your house could still very well be haunted.

The hauntings and experiences with ghosts vary from ghost to ghost...just as differences in humans vary from human to human. Obviously if you're experiencing physical attack and blatant movement or even hurling of objects...violence in any way from an unseen force, you can bet your butt that your house is indeed haunted. And in this case, you might want to stop reading this article and find a priest or someone who can aid in cleansing your home.

But, if you are experiencing less severe signs of a haunting in your home, but signs nonetheless, your house may indeed be haunted.

There are a few ways of actually confirming that your home is haunted:

  • you can videotape different areas of your home where supernatural things are thought to be occurring (specifically at night is the best time)
  • you can also set up recorders to try to catch EVPs (electronic voice phenomenons)
  • you can call in a team of ghost hunters or paranormal investigators
  • you can ask that a psychic or a sensitive come to your home and confirm that there is a ghost
  • you can conduct a séance and ask for direct confirmation from the ghost haunting your house (which I advise against unless you are entirely skilled in the realm of spirits...if not, this could anger the ghost or make your situation take a turn for the WORSE)


What Type of Ghost Haunts Your House?

Depending on the type of paranornal occurrences you are experiencing, you can most likely determine the type of ghost or spirit that is haunting your home.

If you're experiencing slight sights, sounds, smells, etc. then your house is most likely haunted by your average run-of-the-mill ghost or trapped soul. It is possible that the hauntings in your house are also leftover residual energy from a past experience...usually a tragedy that could have occurred in your home or on the property that your home is standing on.

If you're experiencing more violent or malicious paranormal activity in your home, then there could be three different types of spirits or ghosts present. It could be a poltergeist, a demon, or even an ancient spirit...what some call an "elemental".

Poltergeists are usually just what we refer to as "noisy ghosts"...ghosts that make a lot of noise, bang some pots and pans around, and sometimes will physically attack the home's residents...usually the poltergeist activity surrounds a young woman or child.

If the haunting is even more violent and domineering, it could very well be a demon (or what many people believe to be demons). Think about the people in your home...have any of them been playing with a ouija board or been messing around with seances for sheer fun? A door could have been opened in your home or on your property that hasn't been closed...and has invited a demon to stay. Call your local priest, psychic, or someone who is spiritual and able to cleanse your home.

An elemental is an ancient entity...and can be found in the oldest of places...many of them in the desert, in the mountains, or in the old ancient sacred places in Europe. If their homes are disturbed, then they could show up with anger or rage. This is a very RARE haunting, though and is probably not what you are experiencing. If you feel it is, it's probably time to move!

Can We Live With These Ghosts?

The normal ghost or residual energy that could be haunting your home is something that I feel can be lived with...can you share your home with these energies or spirits? Do they frighten you so badly that you can't learn to live with them? If you answered no to the second question, then a cleansing or exorcism could be in store...and you might be experniencing more than a simple haunting in your home.

If you feel poltergeist activity is occurring, or even demon possession of sorts, an exorcism or cleansing of your home is of dire necessity. Call a priest or local shaman to have your home cleansed immediately.

I lived in two homes where there was definitely a ghost or two present, maybe even residual energy circulating in the bricks and wood. In these cases, I learned to live with them and share my space with these spirits or energies. Why? They weren't hurting me or trying to scare me, so why force them out or make them angry?

In another home that I lived in, I experienced sleep paralysis and what I felt was an evil spirit stalking me. In this case, I moved immediately and escaped these feelings and what inevitably might have been an evil spirit of sorts.

In my most recent home, I began experiencing sleep paralysis again and feelings of something watching what did I do? I used a smudging stick of white sage and cleansed my entire home, and also blessed my home...and the energy had left that very day! The night terrors and feelings of discomfort and unease were gone after that.

If you have found the answer to "how to find out if my house is haunted", then I have served my purpose. If you still don't know...try out some of the suggestions that I mentioned before. Set up a video camera or voice recorders...or even invite a team to your home...or a psychic of sorts.

Good luck!

I'm not a firm believer of ghosts because I've never been in such a situation, but I won't flat out say they're fake either. In fact I found your ghost guide to be very interesting and it makes sense. It's also very well written and well drawn out.

Great article.

My story.

May of 1999 I bought my first home in La Vergne,TN. I moved in January 1, 2000. I live alone and have been an over the road truck driver since 1988. I'm away from home for six weeks at a time then spend six days at home. While I'm gone, my neighbors & my mom look after my home. Getting mail and cutting the grass.

For four years things were great. Quiet. But for some reason I could not stay in the master bedroom across the short hallway. I kept my studio equipment in there. I was a sound & video engineer in my spare time. So I slept in the smaller bedroom across the hall. From time to time late at night I would here what sounded like a cat screaming in the distance in pain in my living room but I could not zero in on the location. I don't know if it was inside or outside. Then one Saturday evening while sitting on my couch watching the King Of Queens, A dark shadow caught my peripheral vision. It quickly came from the dark master bedroom around the corner, through the living room and through the archway to my kitchen. Fifteen minuets later one of the (I guess) cabinet door banged shut very loud. Please keep in mind that I was living alone the entire time in this house. It was here that I began to suspect a haunting. Another time I was away and my mom called me on my cell. She said that there was a foul order in my kitchen. I'm a VERY neat person. I clean constantly. Can't stand bugs. When I got home later that week. I found what it was. I had a small raw piece of pork chop in a white bowl in the refrigerator. It was in the microwave. Not only that. But Nat bugs had some how came into my house maybe through a vent, flew into the vents of the microwave and digested the meat. All that was left was a brown disgusting liquid. So I covered my mouth with a near by towel and threw it into the back yard. Bowl and all. I also bounced the microwave off of the far wall in my garage and slammed the door shut. Then one night I had a dream I was standing in the doorway of the bathroom facing the master bedroom and my video monitors that rested on the far wall. A very loud deep voice called me by my nickname when I was a little boy from Knoxville,TN. I jumped up from a deep sleep sweating. This thing also knew one of my biggest fears. Spiders. I got up in the middle of the night to get some water in the kitchen. I didn't have my glasses on so I was careful in the dim light. I walked down the short hall and started to walk under the archway entrance to the kitchen when there it was. Earlier there was always a very big "writing spider" resting in it's round web in front of my door in the "L" shaped hedges outside. I hadn't noticed but after wards and thinking back the spider had been gone for a few days. Anyway. There as an identical one just like it in a very large round web (at face level) blocking the archway. I stopped my face just inches from hitting this spider. I should point out that when I was a child in junior high school, I did hit a spider web with my face while walking across the front lawn and the spider went in my mouth. I spit for what seemed an hour. Very terrifying experience.

How did this "thing" know that?

One of my neighbors was in hos-pis across the street. She was dying of Cancer. She would cook for me from time to time. The photo was taken by her brother Ed. The couple were Cindy & Moniee. Now divorced. My house is across from them. I believe that this that "thing" in the photo roams the cul-de-sac and my house where we all lived.

The other photos were taken by me. 2007. Five of us guys found each other on Facebook. Old high school friends from 1985. The cabin is located up in the Smoky Mountains. A weekend get away. Please notice the orbs in the photos. I had turned out the lights for a better effect while we all sang.

I sold the house back in 2006. When I bought the place, I was so in love with it. Ready to get married, have children and live a good life.

Now. I hate that house. I mean I really, really hate it.

A woman lives in it now. I checked at the hall of records.

Last year in late October I summoned up the courage to drive by the house. Do you it was the ONLY house in the area of that dead end street that was covered in Halloween decorations.

I guess that "thing" is still there.

Have you done some research on this house? I would try to check into its history. Was there anything left in the house when you bought it? If so, I would remove everything that came in the house- even if it was furniture. Sometimes spirits attach to items.

Things happen in my house but not this bad. My daughter heard something scratching refuse ably on her bedroom floor- and whatever it was- knocked everything off her Chester drawers.

This is our second house- it has moved with us. We did take a standing mirror with us from the first house- that was there when we bought it. My daughter seems to believe that the mirror is haunted- and she made me put it in the basement.

This thing has obviously manifested. Unfortunately these things also attach to you- so if you try and move- it will go with you.

I've experienced an aray of things going on, especially bad smells DAILY, growls, sounds like knocking at the door or on the walls, it sounds sometimes like something is being drug across the upstairs floor, I've woken up with burns, scratches, and unexplainable bruising. The WORST thing about my house is the feeling of oppression, I can't shake it, I feel drawn to stay here but yet I KNOW in my heart that this environment is NOT good for me. Every time I TRY to move forward or do something, something blocks it from happening, like freak accidents - IT IS CRAZY at my house. I've gotten several photo's of apparitions, but just the atmosphere in this house alone is very tense, the air is so thick sometimes that it's hard to breathe. I KNOW when something malicious is near as my heart begins to beat wildly and I shake from the inside out, as well as chill bumps and pure fear. No one likes to be alone here, and my kids won't go ANYWHERE in the house alone as they are afraid because of what they've seen. This house has damned me, and I've sought help, no one can help. Sure, blessings help for a little while, but then when it starts back, it comes back FULL FORCE and pissed as hell. Psychics won't enter my house, I've had them tell me the force here is too powerful and dangerous for them to even contemplate dealing with. I've had many tell me that I"m a strong willed person to be able to live here without YET being brought to my demise - and yet I feel it is near if I don't get some help! There HAS to be somebody out there who can help me that won't charge an arm and a leg. I've lost three businesses since I moved into this house FOURTEEN years ago, I've lost all motivation, I have NO ENERGY to do anything, all I want to do is sleep. My lights go on and off at random, and when I say they go off, I mean ALL OF THEM GO OFF. We've paid two different electricians to come check it out and they BOTH said there's nothing wrong with the wiring. The light's going out happens at least four to ten times a day, especially at night kind of late. My TV will cut on in the middle of the night and the volume will turn ALL THE WAY UP, then we can't get it off or cut down until we unplug it. And all this is just a FRACTION of the things that go on around here, I could write a book on our experiences here - BUT FIRST I NEED TO GET SOME HELP. I should go on and start the book because I feeling I'm not gonna last too much longer in this house. People need to know how strong and powerful these forces can be, and believe me when I say, it's hard to believe UNTIL YOU EXPERIENCE IT for yourself. You never know from one step to the next if some freak accident is gonna happen. One time I was bringing dirty dishes from my kids room, I was coming down the stairs and the glass plate slipped out of my hand and crashed against the hardwood floor, ONLY about a three inch piece of jagged glass BOUNCED off the hardwood and flew up into my face, sticking IN MY FACE. My son saw it and freaked out! He didn't even say anything to me, he ran straight to the phone and called his dad to come home, this glass was literally sticking out of my face. Then another time, my husband was "couseling" some crazy man and during the session the "crazy" man got mad and picked up a glass and threw it at the wall - I was washing dishes and the glass shattered on the wall and then a HUGE piece of glass bounced off the wall and stuck in my chest - AGAIN, ANOTHER FREAK ACCIDENT of me getting stuck with glass, and this one left a four inch scar across my chest. I'd love to sell this house but for ONE, we kind of stuck here as we spent our last dollar on it, and FOR TWO, I COULD NOT, with a clear conscience sell this EVIL PIECE OF SHIT HOUSE to some unsuspecting ANYBODY knowing what we've gone through in it. Plus I'm strong willed ENOUGH that I really THINK since no one else can, that I will SOMEHOW be able to get rid of whatever is here, but it would be nice if I could have some suggestions. People don't have to get involved to where it's gonna affect them, just some suggestions. I'm tired, and THIS is NOT the way I'm supposed to be living my life. SOMETHING is draining all the life energy out of me and I have to get rid of it QUICKLY.

I have experienced these type of things since childhood. In our last house I experienced the sounds (my husband did too) of a man walking around in the attic wearing a hard heel shoe (that was what the sound was like, I'm not saying that's what it was) Then last year we had a new home built, and on the first night of living here we heard the same sound in the attic. In the center of the living room we sometimes hear the cry of a cat and we no longer have one.

I have had so many experiences there's no way I could tell them all.

Under your list of “SIGHTS” I have experienced the first four, and the sixth, and ninth ones.

I know by personal experience that they exist. Great hub

Keep up the great hubs :) voted up and awesome.

Tons of info and very interesting. It's funny that when people speak of haunted houses they tend to think you are goofy. I keep my supernatural experiences to myself. There are many explanations, at least from a Catholic perspective, for ghosts. One predominant explanation is that demons using images and actions to influence people. This reason usually explains many of the malicious occurrences of ghosts. Another reason is that we have immortal souls - we are spitits in a physical reality and some of us may have a glimpse into the spiritual world. We may not know all the reasons but it sure is interesting and I am going to refer back often to your Hub. Thank you and . . . . . BOOOOOO!!

legopenguin - I have to tell you, it sounds like an un-friendly entity is messing with you. I'd do a cleansing of your home or at least your room, friend. But that's just me. Good luck to you.

legopenguin 3 years ago

I've been lurking your hub for awhile (mainly reading your posts about paranormal subject), such good reads!!!!

I have to say im quite skeptical whether sleeping paralysis is a spiritual encounter or not, but that doesn't take away that its frightening every time!

The funny thing is I only have them back in my own home (i lived out of my city during university). I have them quite frequently and they appear to be getting worst.

- first time i experienced it i heard a deep mumbling sound, then my body froze (as you would during sleeping paralysis)

- then i started seeing a shadow figure + mumbling noise

- and now i get really scared, because the shadow moves, it will dissapear for a second but i can feel it coming closer then i see a decaying hand grab my forehead. When that's happening it seems to reciting something and i feels like its sucking all the energy out of me lol .....

Even still im quite skeptical..

ThePelton 3 years ago

Unsure13. Don't worry. I found that if you talk to spirits, they can be convinced to welcome you. A cleansing ceremony wouldn't hurt, either.

Megan - It sounds to me like your grandfather is your spirit guide/guardian. Of course it could be him! :)

Megan 3 years ago

Okay, I need your opinion. Almost every night, and especially when I'm stressed or something's worrying me, I'll fell this presence. It's not bad, it's like their watching over me or making sure I'm safe. I fell like its my grandfather, and I'll always picture him in my mind without even thinking of him. The thing is, he died 10 years before I was born and lived in Ohio, whereas I live in Virginia, could it still be him? My dad, his son will fell the same way at night. Could he of followed him here when he and my mom moved?

Raine - You could very well be sensitive to the spirits around you. I don't think that you are haunted necessarily so much as the houses are haunted in which you live. Many people have haunted houses, they just don't notice because they don't believe or are not sensitive to the energies and spirits around them. Very spooky story...sounds a lot like the experiences I've had. Blessings to you!

Every since I was a little girl I've been haunted. People can be haunted too. I've always seen, felt , heard ghosts; it's something that runs in my family. I've seen dead loved ones and strangers. The first time I remember seeing ghosts was when I was two years old (yes, I can remember that far back :) some people wonder how I can remember when I was two years old) and I was in the bed, my mom and my brother slept in the same room as I did because it was a small one bedroom apartment. I was still awake when everybody was asleep and I saw men and women coming out of our living room, walking through our bedroom and into the kitchen. I saw some from the waist up and some just from the shoulders up and they appeared to look and dress like people from the the 1920s. I could see through them. They didn't scare me at all but I was alarmed that people was walking through our house at night. Every house I move in spirits follow me and already be there; some good and some bad. I don't know if that makes me haunted or the houses haunted.

Hi, I'm Erika I'm 11 years old almost 12 im in middle school.

I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters 10 altogether. I've lived in almost a new house every year, but my mum and dad divorced when I was 6 it was hard for me and my family. My mum met her (lover) when I was in foster care. I went to see my dad and he over dosed :( it was sad. I wish my dad all thee best.well any wase back to the story. We moved to house it was good then a NUTHER house it was even better!! But then we moved here we've been here for about 3 years...... The fist sighn was my nephu talking to the wall. He was 1 he's 3 now, we were down stairs and he said to the wall "bye see you later" scared me to death, so I said LET'S GO UP STAIRS"!!!!! I felt weird after that. The 2nd sign was me in my room at about 2:00 am watching people play minecraft, I saw a white thing in the corner on my wall, so I went into my sisters room she makes me feel protected. It looked like a really tall person, but I bet it want trying to do any harm. The 3rd sign was today......and I'm still scared. My nephue Aidan the 3 year old, he's been acting really weird latly. We were talking because I learn magic. He started hitting me and talking to me but looking right beside me. So at that moment I said who are you talking to he said enen sounds like (eee-neen) I felt so watched. When I walk up the stairs I feel like I'm being chased so I run as fast as I can. I've told my step dad and mum about it, an I said can we move?? They said no your beig silly. What should I do it's very weird and when I'm typing this comment it feels like some one is saying (don't tell any one I'm here) but I also feel like some one is stroking my hair at night weird.

Great hub! It is nice to hear from others who believe. I have photos just like yours with the smoke. When my parents moved to Montana I went to help them unpack and took pictures to show my siblings. Many of the photos were just of rooms, but several had this smoke in them. Later, when I ended up moving in with them, my daughter would wake up with scratches on her, photo frames would switch places on the shelf when I was gone, and the radio turned itself on at 2am (almost every night). When we unplugged the radio the dryer would turn on. We decided it was safer to have the radio turn on then the dryer. A few years after moving out we heard the house had burned down without explanation.

I enjoyed your story, thanks for writing it.

shawna - I do not know how many are there...but it sounds like a negative spirit or spirits to be sure. Have you asked your pastor or priest to come bless the house? It couldn't hurt, right?

Shawna 3 years ago

Hi this house were living in we've felt to be haunted and we talked to out landlord about it and indeed he said it was. We have experienced certain thing that have happened. When we first moved in and got settled I have gaven my jewelry box to my eldest daughter and she kept it in here room and it started winding up and playing by it self. Ok so we moved it out of her room and blessed the house with holy water. We don't think then it hasn't gone away then later on my kids started being scared to walk through the hallway in froNt of their rooms and started not to get up in the middle of the night and go out of their rooms because they were so scared. So, we've blessed the house again. I don't think it has worked my son all of a sudden has gotten scratches on the back of one of his legs. It went away very quickly. We blessed the house again. One time my daughter was taking a shower and again she's gotten scratched on her leg and it went away while still in the shower. One time my father in law was up late at night and went for a glass of water and the dishwasher started it self it freaked him out he said a prayer and went to bed. My self at night I away go to the bathroom before I go to bed and I feel scared and feel like someone or something is chasing me back to my room. Last week I was helping my son with his homework we were sitting in my room I was sitting on the chair and not paying attention but my the back of my hand started to itch at first but I didn't mind it so I didn't look at it and I started to notice it start burning more and more and looked at it and noticed I got scratched by something or someone and again the next morning we blessed the house again with holy water and prayers. I want to know if you can tell how many or what is here? Can you give me any resources to help us out?

For the Christians here, another reason to believe in ghosts.. Technically, according to the bible, people don't really go to heaven until the judgement day, so some are not asleep like they should be, they are up walking around until that day comes. It probably would bug those who think their relatives are in heaven. But think what you like.

You can make people think your house is haunted by making a double-negative stereogram. It's about as easy as making a double-negative. Get an anaglyph generator like "3D Camera" for the iPad, then take two photos side by side with about 3 inches separation (step to the side between shots), next dress in a wedding gown or a sheet, get a flashlight and shine it on your face, in the mirror, take two shots left and right, now composite each two shots in the "3d camera" app, and then take the resulting anaglyph and "add" it together in a iPad app like "Procreate". Save, post to your facebook, and add "3D proof I have a ghost in my house".

Hauntings are bs, i'm typing this in a retirement living facility, so go figure, visiting my dad. Anyhow there is proof that most hauntings are actually a result of carbon monoxide poisoning hallucinations, if you see ghosts in your home, get a carbon monoxide detector. The ghost stories from the early 20th century were a result of the popularity of gaslights, without proper ventilation it caused people to hallucinate. There is a "this american life" show about this topic. BY THE WAY , i used to be really paranoid of the dark as a kid after watching shows like "That's incredible" which used to have stories like hauntings of a ToysRUs, after that I was leery about shopping for toys. But years later, I like to see how well I can navigate the room in the dark, then I turn on my iPad and aim it at the floor. By the way didn't read article, I'm using local wifi because AT&T dropped my DSL when I decided to change my phone service, now i got not internet and, I need to go home, I will read the article at home..

unsure13 - Did the presence feel like a negative one, a neutral one, or more of a positive one? That would be my first question for you. As far as ghosts coming in the form of shadows, they don't usually. That's a whole different type of spirit known as a shadow person...and generally they are not benevolent spirits. They may not be malevolent but they are never really good spirits. My gut instinct on your story is that perhaps his GG-grandfather is aware that you all are moving onto that land, but I would be extra careful which spirits you allow on your property/house. If I were you I would do a thorough energetic cleansing of the house before you all move into it...that way you remove any negative entities or energy that might be lingering in that place. If GG-grandfather was indeed murdered, there might be some nasties hanging about in the midst of such traumatic energy...hopefully this all makes sense. Good luck!

Here's my story. I hope you can shed some light on this.

My husband and I have been researching his family. His GG-Grandfather has been the center of our searches. They say that he had an accident in 1859 but we feel that he was murdered. He owned a very large plantation. We have located were the plantation was. His house is no longer there. From letters we discovered it burnt in the 1800's. We have found a house for sale that is 111 years old that sits on the plantation land. We are in the processing of buying it because that is the land that he loved. Here's the thing. We visit the house about 3 times a week. About 2 weeks ago my husband and I were there. It was a cold day. We were walking down the stairs to go back into the main hall when we noticed that the wall going down the stairs was wet. My husband ran his hand across the wall and you could see where he had run his hand. We continued down the stairs. When we got to the bottom of the steps and turned to walk down the hall my husband froze in his tracks. He said that someone was in the house and asked where our daughter was. She was outside in the yard playing. This is a dog trot style house. My husband said that there was a shadow of a person walking into the kitchen. He told me to stay were I was (that way I could see all the doors.). He went into all three rooms that are connected and there wasn't anyone there. We went back a week later and again we were walking down the stairs. My husband was in front of me. I had a strange feeling that something or someone was behind me. I was to afraid to look back so I just kept on walking. We met the realtor there today and was telling her about it and we heard a bang in the front room. We went to look and there wasn't anything there. The house is empty. I feel that some how his GG-Grandfather found his way back to the house (property) and he is trying to tell us he is there. We think that he knows family is going to be living back on his land. Are we losing our minds? Also, the walls haven't been wet since the shadow.

Oh and i forgot to add, in those dreams, its never daytime or nighttime. Its always gray and kinda foggy like. Idk if that means anything.

crazysteph 3 years ago

Many of my dreams where i feel like im possessed im not really flying, more like floating. And i can go through walls. Everywhere i go is a bad dark place and im always really scared. And there are definitely spirits/demons there. Im absolutely positive of that. always explain it to my parents its like im not in my body but something else is and i sense it strongly. And i don't really tell my self im dreaming but i can definitely talk to myself and i always just make myself snap out of it or knowingly make alto of whispers until i can make my husband wake me up. It very hard to describe.

kittythedreamer profile image

kittythedreamer 3 years ago from the Ether Author

crazysteph - They showed up, it's just that I have to approve comments before they're posted (it cuts down on the trolls LOL). Anyway, what you're talking about with the being paralyzed in your sleep and feeling like something is holding you down, you are not alone with experiencing this. I have experienced it at least 2 times in my life, and it was rather scary. It's called "sleep paralysis", and you might be experiencing it because you are an astral traveler. Do you have dreams of flying? Do you know when you're are you conscious in your dreams and think to yourself, "oh, okay, I'm dreaming right now". If so, you are probably an astral traveler. You are not possessed, get that out of your head right now. The thing with astral travelers is that your soul leaves its body at night and travels to another plane (another dimension) or it may just travel to other places in this world too. When it goes to come back into your body, sometimes your body doesn't react quite the right way and it makes you feel paralyzed...does this make sense? Also, i do believe that certain entities/spirits can try to follow you or feed off of your body while your soul is not there. So I do two things whenever I have sleep paralysis coupled with a feeling of being followed or something dark around me.

a. I perform a smudging or cleansing on my house (I use white sage and say a prayer to remove all negativity in my home...I do this by going to each room with the burning sage and saying the prayer in each room).

b. Every night I visualize a white light (either a bubble or a cone whatever is easiest for you) around myself and around my entire house. Visualize that this bubble/cone cannot be penetrated by anything negative or dark, but only allows good energy to flow in and out.

If you need any more information on astral traveling or cleansing your home, let me know. I have a lot of resources and have written articles on both topics. Many Blessings, and keep your head up! You're not crazy. :)

WWow my first comment never showed up. Uhh im pissed it was really long

crazysteph 3 years ago

Sorry, my phone messed up.anyway, my dreams of being possessed come and go. Just when i think im in the clear i have one. When i wake up, i can't tell what is real and what isn't. What happened and what didn't. My parents think there is a "holy war! Going on inside me. When i moved out all was well except my possession nightmares. I never felt i was being watched, things weren't being misplaced and then appearing. All was good. Now that i have children my parents offered to rent the house to me and my husband. Nothing major has happened to me but my husband has had small run ins. I still feel im being watched though. The reason im questioning all this more now is because my sister and i got to talking and she never knew about my dreams or being scared or waking up paralyzed. Very similar things happened to her (not the possession dreams though) but my other vivid dreams are very similar to hers. I just don't know how to digest all this because everyone around me always made me feel crazy and now i know im not alone!!!! Perhaps two different things are going on??

crazysteph 3 years ago

Maybe you can help me. Ever since i was little i was always terrified to be alone and had horrible nightmares. Very vivid. I slept in my sisters room until she left for college. One night when i was 16 i woke up where only one of my eyes could open and i could not move or scream AT ALL! i could only see something dark and shadow like in the corner of my room. I just prayed and prayed and eventually gained barely enough movement to make it to my doorway. Once i got there it was like a force wouldn't let me leave and the next thing i knew, i was waking up in my doorway and ran to my parents room crying. Its happened to me maybe two other times since that and im 23 now. I've always felt like I'm

being watched. In the middle of the night if i got thirsty and had to go downstairs on my way back up i would have to run my fastest as if something was chasing me. For about three years now im having nightmares of being possessed. They are the scares thing everand

Thorough info on the topic =) I developed quite a sensitivity to them myself over the past fifteen years...and although I have the signs of a haunted house, I don't think my house is haunted. I think my relatives just like to visit from time to time. =)

The hair dryer switch turned on by itself the night my dad's close friend passed away; I then left a note to dad letting him know he had visited, since dad was sleeping.

I've had conversations in my head with my grandmother, since I have mediumship abilities. She hand other relatives tell me answers to things that I could not possibly know ahead of time.

Thanks and great question!

Erin17 - Then we know that it's not a spirit who has attached itself to you. I have a few suggestions to rid your house of this darker entity. I have had similar experiences while lying in bed, though mine have to do with the fact that I do a lot of astral traveling in my sleep...Here are some suggestions to help you (depending on what you feel is right, personally):

1. You can smudge your house with sage (you can get a bundle of sage from a metaphysical store or online and then light one end, allowing the smoke to fill each room of your house while you pray that all negativity be removed and only positive can stay)

2. You can do a simple blessing with holy water (you can make your own or get some from a nearby church if you are religious)

3. This is something that you can do on a daily basis before going to bed - envision a white light encircling your house...keeping out all negative energy and forces and only allowing positive in. You can also envision this white light surrounding your body as you sleep and throughout the day. This works wonders for me.

Let me know if any of these help, as I have a feeling they will work. Many Blessings, sweetheart.

I think my house is haunted, but I'm the only one experiencing things. It started about a year and a half ago. It was around a birthday so I was being forced to sleep in my moms room on the air mattress so my relatives could have actual beds. That night, I saw this thing that looked like a relatively tall man's shadow. I tried to explain it away as a trick of the light but it was hard because I could see the wall behind where the shadow thing was. The worst part was, it felt like it wanted to hurt me. Then it started happening when I was in my room. It didn't happen very often, so I tried to ignore it, but this last week it's gotten worse. The first night I felt like someone was watching me as I tried to sleep. I explained it away as tiredness. The next night it happened again and once again I tried to explain it away. Then, I felt the left side of my bed dip down, like someone had sat on it. I kept trying to think of reasonable explanations the whole night. The next night, as I was falling asleep I felt someone push my shoulder down and I couldn't move. I attributed to that jerk thing you do as you drift off, but then it happened again, but I was leaning up on my elbows, so I know I wasn't just drifting off. I don't know if I'm going crazy or if my relatively new house is haunted.

Hi, Hannah. I don't know of a website to give you, but I think I might be able to help you a bit honey. The same thing happened to me when I was a child, but not to the extent that you're going through it. My suggestion is to start praying or asking your guardian angels to protect you and only allow the friendly spirits through to you until you can learn how to control this gift. You can also visualize a white light (either in the form of a bubble or a cone shape) around yourself, to protect your energy and spirit from those who might try to harm you. It keeps the negative energies away from you but allows the good ones in. Hopefully this helps. Visit me any time.

I have to say that this was a good hub. I can see from your pictures that you have orbs in them. Orb are spiritual beings. My daughters and myself always have them in our photos. Mostly ours are green and blue and sometimes white. I have never seen a red orb before though. These must have great energy.

Start to note the times that you hear things etc. You will find that in most cases things happen around the same time at night. Ours in our house always occur around 3:00pm.

Spirits also can travel with you- so if you think you can just move away and they disappear- it do-sent always happen.

Hey Kitty...Here's my ghost story: I was visiting my daughter in North Carolina and during the day while I was alone there while she was at work I noticed a very tall dark shadow in her kitchen. Naturally, being a mother, I didn't want to frighten her, so I kept it to myself. After returning to my home, my daughter called me and said: "Mom, did you notice anything strange while you were here?" At that point, I confessed, but only after she told me she had seen a dark shadow in her kitchen too, as well as a small bright object that "ran" through her dining room wall into the kitchen wall and rattled the pots and pans inside the cabinets on the other side of the wall. She has since moved and so far, no ghosties. Whew.

I would not want to live in a haunted house... I remember I was sleeping alone in a four story house and I kept hearing noises and seeing shadows through the crack in the closed door. That scared me to the core. I could not fall asleep and was afraid to leave the room. It was the worst experience. And it was my own house. My parents had left for vacation and I was spending a few weeks alone.

Very well said Kittythedreamer. Some things are better left unknown. You have done a good job sharing this Hub. I have had very bad experiences I can relate to this subject. My strong belief in God has saved me till now,but have lost the most precious gift of my life. One can get rid of ghosts by shifting from such haunted houses but can't easily get rid of ghosts who relocate alongwith you with the intention of harming.

Nupteiron - I don't recommend it if you don't want to know exactly what's going on. Some things are better left know what I mean? I find that sometimes looking for ghosts draws them in.

my family and i just moved into the civil war town of Fredericksburg Virginia, and I believe this house is haunted. my kind don't show our fear, but i will tell you the truth, we do have fear, and what happens at this house startles me a little. i don't know if the spirit of Vlad followed me home from college but my bathroom door opens by its self even when it is latched shut. I also hear boot steps at night (when i'm not outside) i plan on setting up a recorder to do an EVP session with the ghost. do you recommend i do that, Kitty?

precy - I would say to skip the voice recorder thing. Sometimes it's better not to know, you know what I mean? And yes, I see the horse in the mist in the picture...not sure about the seahorse but definitely looks like a horse in some ways. Your house may very well be haunted, but it seems like a friendly, harmless ghost. Blessings!

That mist looks like a horse to me, or a seahorse looking at you, holding your right hand :) Reading this, I can say our house is haunted. My dad comes home from work at 3 pm or around those time. Many times my mom or me would hear a key dangling and expecting dad would pop his head on the door. Few times I waited, and hide on the hallway to surprise him.... minutes went by, told myself "oh never mind" and popped my head and looked but nobody's there.

Few times I heard the bathroom door here at the room banged, while on the internet almost 11:30 pm, no wind, and just me on the room. The sound of as if someone opened or closed the door. And that sets me off running on the living room. Dad or mom would say, "what's wrong with you?" Lol. They wouldn't believe me. But when they tell me stories of theirs, I wouldn't fully believe either. Then I would be sitting here online, and the "not fully close door" would open about few inches. I wonder if it would be the wind, but it should be a strong wind to do that, and the room was too far from the main door and it's closed anyway. Mom would say she feels somethings when she's up alone in the living room late at night. Dad said twice the tv changed channel while he's watching. Lol. I've been thinking leaving a voice recorder at night but the thought of, discovering a ghostly voice there scares me.

AP - I was young and very sick in that I probably was about to cry! The first time I saw that picture, my mom and I both almost fainted! We couldn't believe what we were seeing...and there's no logical explanation for it. Sounds like that house was on a hot spot for spiritual houses don't have to be free of spiritual entities or energies, now do they? One of my latest is here:

Ammazing pic. At first I saw the mist of course and then Kitty...well you look so sweet and almost like you were about to maybe cry i wanted to pick you up and protect you. Missed the boy looking apparition and dog! The mist connects to the semi figure and your pet seems to be playing at the feet. Kitty when looking for a house to buy 5 or 6 years ago the one i choose even though it was the priciest had never been lived in before; sometimes would get strange vibes in others. What's another of your hubs you would recommend about any of your para experiences?

Yes, my grandfather believes that ghosts don't exist...that they are in fact evil spirits playing on our emotions by taking the forms of passed loved ones. I guess it's all a matter of opinion...but I couldn't tell my passed loved ones to hit the road! LOL

Well thank you. But I have heard that some people believe an evil spirit can assume the personality of a dead loved one. The next time a dead relative shows up, I just may invite them to leave. (How could you tell your beloved granny to beat it?)

Dolores - Sounds like dear old Uncle Gene is either hanging around or comes around to visit or protect your youngest. Awesome story, though. And you're right - not all "ghosts" are bad, some I'm sure are here for a reason and maybe even to be helpful, like in the case of your Uncle Gene. What a sweet story. If I could "like" your comment on here like you can on Facebook, I would!

My sister and I have often argued about ghosts. I say that we should tell them to leave, she wants to learn more about them. Despite my argument, I have often wondered if we had a ghost, for a short time. I saw my dear old Uncle Gene sitting at the kitchen table some time after his death. People have said this is just because I used to see him so often sitting there in life, that my eyes just saw what they expected. Then my young son claimed that he was wakened from nightmares by an old man who sat by his bed and promised to remain there to protect my son from bad dreams. This son never knew Uncle Gene, but that would be something my uncle would do (if he could). How could a 4 year old understand the personality and behavior of someone he never met and project it into something he made up? I like to think that Uncle Gene did comfort my little boy. Then he moved off to a better place. Not all ghosts are harmful.

Paradise - You're right. In many instances hauntings can be quite scary! Thanks!

Frank - Even the lights flickering were attributed to the animals in the attic? That's unusual...unless they were messing with the wires?

Another Top-notch Hub.. my brother thought his house was haunted.. he heard the scratches on the wall and the lights would flicker.. but it turned out to be animals in the attic causing havoc... but it was nice for a brief moment thinking it was haunted :)

Really interesting. I'm glad, after all, that my little apartment isn't haunted. It's fascinating but more than scary to actually experience these things.

justateacher - Thanks so much! Yes, I found that story fascinating. I wouldn't be afraid to talk about it on here at least. You can always confide in me. :) I know much about ghosts..and have experienced them a lot. Thanks for sharing and I'm sure your loved ones are around, watching over you. Blessings!

Love this! You read my hub about my Ghostly Girls.I have had other experiences that can't be explained, as well. My grandmother and mother always had a sense that they had certain ghosts following them throughout their lives...they always felt that their loved ones that had passed were always around. Now that my grandmother and mother have passed, I feel them and the other loved ones watching over me. I rarely talk about this because of the reactions I get when I do talk...

Great hub!

moonlake - Sounds like your house is definitely haunted, friend!

lucy - Wow! That is truly creepy stuff you've experienced. But I can see that that would happen in a place where a good amount of people pass on. Thank you so much for sharing!

writer20 - I'm sure it was your Dad...what a sad but beautiful story. Thank you for sharing it with us, dear.

Smokes Angel - Yes, many Christians will tell you that these things are evil or not to believe them, but there are many things that religion can't explain.

amymarie_5 - If it was a comforting presence then I am sure it was your grandfather or some other passed relative. What a lovely ghost story! Thanks for telling it to me. Glad you enjoyed the hub and my picture. :)

My friend is extremely sensitive and as kids we used to go to my grandmothers home a lot. She always sensed a comforting presence in her home. To this day she insists her home was haunted. My grandfather died young in a freak accident and I remember thinking it was him watching over her from the other side. :)

Excellent hub and that picture of you is fascinating. Thanks for sharing it!

Voted up, useful and interesting :)

Love it! I am a big one on the paranormal actually. I seem to be hypersensitive to these things. A lot of Christians frown on it but there are things I can't explain.

Like I've said before I think this house has ghost. Not bad ghost just ghost that think their still living here. The woman of the house died in the kitchen many many years ago. The man of the house died outside. When we rented and then later bought the house their daughter talked with us. Than a few months later she died suddenly at a young age. The three of them are buried in the cemetery maybe a quarter mile from our house. I can see the back side of the cemetery from our window.

Enjoyed your hub.

Wow! how can you live in a house with a ghost? I know I would be gone. Vote up and awesome.

Back into 2010 my brother was dying from the same disease as my father. After seeing my brother I called out to my father for a week or two then one night I felt a cold breeze at the back of my legs, the next morning a phone saying he had passed. So I hoped my father came for him.

Awesome hub! I have things like this happen to me quite a bit, even my job has ghosts. I do have to mention I work in a home for seniors, and I am a cook and overnight aid. I have had a few strange things happen there. I have seen floating shadows and orbs. One time when I was going into staff bedroom, the spirit said to me, Bonny we have been waiting for you. I was worried about going into the room, then another time in that room. I was sitting reading a book and all the sudden there appeared to be black smoke surrounding my legs, boy did I jump up fast. I lived in an apartment where a young girl was killed in the bathroom, by her boyfriend way back in the day. The apartment house is a historic house with many apartments in it, which was being renovated at the time. Anyway I never felt comfortable there, and the ghost would move all kinds of things around my apartment when I was not home. This is one subject that really interests me.
