This afternoon, while watching A Haunting on television about a family in Ireland, I heard the distinct sound of something hitting the wall of either the bathroom or my childs room (they are back to back). Since the child was in school and the only two people who were home were both sitting in the living room, I know it wasn't one of us. There are times I believe Shelly is correct, the spirits in this house are not fond of that television show.Too bad, because I love that show and watch it every chance I get Now, we all know things go bump in the night, but what about the daytime? Ever hear or see a spirit in the daytime?

Hey fwidman! Sure! I've hear things go bump in the daytime! I know that spirits don't just come out at night. I have definitely heard things during the day time when it was perfectly light outside. I am quite sure of this. I have heard scratching on my window screens when there was no one there and it was not an animal. I have heard things in my apartment and it wasn't the cats. I know for a fact that the spirits are around in the daytime. They don't always wait until dark to come out. And if you do have a spirit that you know of for sure as you sound like you do and you think that you are doing something to disturb it during the daytime then maybe you are. You think it doesn't like a tv show that you are watching? That is very interesting!

Myabe it doesn't like the show because the spirits on A Haunting are all so evil! I know the spirits inside this house are not evil. Playful at times, but certainly not evil If they were evil I would have to evict them

I wish I knew if it was coming back, I really do enjoy the show Since I generally see my houseguests in a shadowy form, It's easier to see them if the house is brightly lit. I do notice them when the house is completely dark, but their shadows don't seem the same as when there is light

isnt it weird/cool that every one sees/senses them in their own special way? kind of sucks for when you are telling non believers since there are different stories but i think some people will always see spirits light or dark.. some see both but you dont hear about it much unless they are like ghost hunting or something lol..

I have seen one spirit in human form, but that was a long time ago and not in my home. So yes, we do see them in different shapes and forms and it is certainly special, at least to me And, to you!

hi fwidman nice shoes. anyway years back when we were in our house, my husband had to have cancer surgery. while he was in the hospital my twelve year old son was worried about him. suddenly we had the oddest things happening, doors wouldopen , drawers would slide open too, books would just fly through the air for no reason. I had no idea what was causing that but when my husband had recovered enought to come home, and my son was no longer worried, all that stuff stopped. just like that. we did some reading up. poltergeists were being summoned by the angst of our pre teen son, and as soon as his daddy was home and safe, it all stopped. It was scary for awhile there. lol lol lol

I would imagine that it was very scary! I have often read where some spirits do feed off the negative energy of a child, and worry about a parent is certainly filled with negative energy. I'm glad they went so peacefully once hubby was back home

I have yet to see the show so I'm not sure if the left over spirits here would like it or not. Maybe they are trying to communicate with you and tell you to replay an episode so they can enjoy the fright they put into people. I've never seen a spirit during the daytime but every now and then I'll catch something out of the corner of my eye, I've got great vision so I know its not my eyesite going.

Nope, not your eyesight I often see the shadows during daytime or when the room is brightly lit. They don't usually make so much noise, they just move from place to place

All Hallows Eve doesn't scare me any You should try sitting in a darkened room and ask them to show themselves to you and see if they do I tried, but they wouldn't show. They did move something when I asked for a sign that they were there but they wouldn't show. Darn! Hope you had fun at work! *hugs*

I've never seen a spirit either in the day or the night! I do get freaked out by my back bedroom though, i don't know why but i get a bad feeling when i walk past there and the door is slightly open - not if it's closed or fully open though - and i get this feeling in the day and the night! I suppose spirits are around at all times of the day, rather than being nocturnal!! hehe xxx

No, I am certain they are not nocturnal it is just always stranger when they are noisy in the daytime. I wonder what is lurking in that back bedroom of yours?

I suppose we expect to hear them at night, so it's easier to assume that any strange noises are caused by spirits in the dark!! I don't know what it is, i've decided it's the ghost of a girl named annie, so i sometimes talk to her - i am a little nuts! - although it's become a bit of a joke really, there may be nothing in there other than my overactive imagination! the rest of my house has a really welcoming and cosy atmosphere, i've felt at home here since the day i moved in! strange really! xxx

You never know, it could be someone I have seen shows where the whole house is okay except for one room!

I hear things all the time when I'm the only one around or when everyone is in the same room, night and day. As long as they aren't hurting us or kepping us awake, they can stick around, we don't mind.

I hate being woken up too. I have enough trouble sleeping with my two kids.

Kids can be a real problem when one is trying to sleep. Or, do much of anything else

I don't recall hearing a spirit. But I have heard strange sounds and the latest one. I was here on my computer and listening to the television and I heard this very strange noise, coming from the front of the house. I turned the TV down so I can hear better, and it stopped . I continued on the computer and heard it again got up went to the front and it stopped. Later that day I went out to get in my car and that's when I notice a whole in the side of my house on the trimming under the roof. A hole where a squirrel has eaten his/her way out of the attic..Got a picture of it on my profile page. I have gotten it repaired since then. But Boy Do I Hate SQUIRELLS.

I don't care much for squirrels either. they are supposed to be afraid of humans, but they run straight at me. I am afraid of rodents, period

Fun, fun, fun. Nothing like the little noises out of nowhere, any time of day. One of the most interesting things was turning around to find large drops of blood in my floor and no one was bleeding. Mind you, I prefer that to finding a snake in the house. I think the worst was being "felt up" while at work and no, it wasn't a person. Never a dull moment around here.

Being felt up? That would be startling! Blood on the floor would not be good, especially if it didn't want to be cleaned up With spirits, there never is a dull moment, that's for sure

Well, the house is a family home and we found out later that great grandma had held the razor to great grandpa's throat in that spot at one time. She didn't kill him, but she did draw blood. It hasn't happened again. To be honest, I was relieved that none of the cats were injured. The other occured at work. Many moons ago, the area behind our shop was known as slab town. It was where some of the hobos and such stayed. It wasn't a good area. There have been a few things I've had to deal with here at work.

Hi fwidman...spirit has no time and doesn't recognize or live by the clock which we on the physical plane do...they are just as active during the day as in the evening only during the day most of us are too busy to even think or hear them in the evening things quieten down in our lives and also during the night that is when we are more likely to hear them or see them...I am a medium and sense them more than see them sometimes I do actually see them, my daughter who is 25 has the gift of seeing them during the day and in the evening but they do not scare her at all. There is a possibility that your spirits don't like the programme the Haunting BUT on the other hand they may just like to make themselves known during that programme or aftr because that is when your minds are more open and sensitive to them..personally I would take the latter as they do like playing pranks at times...littleowl

I am sure they enjoy the program, if they don't it may be because all the spirits on that show are evil. But, I can deal with the pranks and the noise, as I always have the option of yelling at them to cut it out and they do obey. I have seen them, day and night, but only in shadow form. I have asked them to show themselves (when the girls were out of the house) but they did not. So, I just left it as "whenever you are ready to show yourselves to me". Hopefully, one day they will

Ooo! Ooo! I love that show! And I'm pretty sure I know the ep you're talking about. That ep was rpetty creepy. I've had stuff like that happen to me before though. This house is scary. Mostly at night is when everything happens here. Last night I was playing Burnout on my PS3 and I heard creeking noises like someone was trying to walk quietly in the next room but there was no one in there. The only people home were my husband and my son and they were both asleep. This was around 3am. I was having trouble sleeping. Needless to say, after that I called it a night. I couldn't shake the feeling that there was either someone watching me or standing right next to me to the point where every hair on the back of my neck stood on end. *shudder*

Maybe they wanted to play that game with you I don't let them bother me, even when I feel the hairs standing up and I know they are right beside me or behind me. I usually ignore that part, or I would never get anything done I have tried to get them to show themselves, but so far, no luck with that. I am patient though and hopeful that they will show themselves some day

lol I like that show also. The other night I went to bed and I was reading my book for a bit. I just turned out the light and the clock radio started going off really loud. The alarm wasn't set. Odd huh I guess they didn't want me to go to sleep just yet so I read somemore. Toys in my daughters room go off often during the night.

Thanks, my friend I will try my best to have a pleasant night, and I hope the spirits don't have too much fun running around my house, especially if I am sleeping

Hi fwidman, Yes, they do still hangs around the house during the daytime as well. The spirits in my house loves to turn my picture now and again for attention, yes they are everywhere night or day, it don't matter to them. Tamara

Hi, tamara! Yeah, spirits are funny that way. Guess they don't know how to tell time, or maybe they just don't care what time of the day it is since time means nothing to them.

Who's to know what it was...I would suggest suggestive thought since you were watching a program about hauntings but about the time I do there'll be a mysterious thumping coming from another room here and I am not dealing with mystery thumps at this hour of the morning LOL [b]~~IN SEARCH OF PEACE WITHIN~~ **AGAINST THE STORMS, I WILL STAND STRONG** [/b]

It may have been suggestive thoughts, although I am not sure about that. I know it was not suggestive thoughts when the spirits moved things or threw things when I wasn't even thinking about spirits or ghosts. In the morning would not be a good time for them to be active. Not until I have had my coffee
