Playful visitor or creepy pest?
I found your site via a medium that I had visit our
home. I live in South Lake County,
recently moved into my home almost a year ago. We have been
experiencing what we think is a haunting, ghost or whatever you want to call
We are past the point of trying to make up excuses for everything we
are experiencing and far beyond the point of caring if anyone believes us or
Our home used to be a barn used as a religious retreat – sort of like a
commune for hippies.......this must have been at least 40 years ago as the
barn was then purchased and made into a home in 1969. They kept the frame
of the barn and just built on rooms all over the house.
Under the Cedar is
black/green shingles that barns were made of back in the day, i guess?!?!?
In our attic are barn door windows boarded up so we definitely know that
this was a barn. But documents to this home only date back to 1969 when the
additions were added on to make the "structure" a home.
We had a medium come in, she thinks it is a little girl, which makes sense
as it is very playful and is now starting to make contact with my little
boys (I have 4).
A few things we have experienced: Lights going on by themselves, we
continuously turn them off yet to find them turned on again (only on the 2nd
floor - the boys rooms). We also have a closet door upstairs that we
continuously close to find it open all the time. We hears balls bouncing at
night all the time, footsteps and voices on our baby monitor. Most of the
time we can not make out what is said.
A few nights back my 3 year
old woke up screaming and we heard......."it's alright Bobby, Bobby it's
alright". This "haunting" for lack of better words was talking directly to
The next day I asked my son what happened and he proceeded to tell
me that a little boy/girl tried to pick him up and he/she was mad at
him......it is hard for us to decipher realty with imagination, but I tend
believe my son as this was not the first time he has mentioned seeing and
He once told us he did not want to go upstairs anymore
because there are ghosts that call him Bobby. He also told us that it
comes downstairs and runs back up.
My dog has not been the same in months,
I think she senses something. A few months back she was upstairs sleeping
and started barking ferociously, my husband went up to investigate and she
flew down the stairs with her hair standing up on her back - she was scared.
She also does this periodically through out the day - staring into
air......not seeing anything.
About 8 weeks ago we had a baby and brought him home from the hospital . . .
that is when we started seeing "things".
Not sure exactly what we are
seeing but know it is something as my husband and I have both seen it and my
girlfriend has too, all at different times but all of us described it the
same. It's always peripheral, never straight ahead - always above our head
a bit. It reminds me of fine newspaper paper printing (cream &white) with a
light shining behind it........sort of floats fast........i dunno, it's hard
Our medium thinks it has something to do with us bringing our
son home that we are able to see "it" now.
She did some automatic writing,
and she thinks the ghost died from a fall from an oak tree - She thinks "it"
cannot resist our family, especially our children. The medium thinks she
may be looking for a mother figure and found it in me - not sure if I
believe all of that - but do believe in what I SEE and what I HEAR.
nights ago I felt someone staring at me and saw something at the head of my
bed, i screamed for my husband and when I turned back "it" was gone. Again,
I dunno, maybe I was sleeping and dreamt it (always making excuses).
