hey everyone :) i've been visiting this house recently in my neighborhood...it was recently abandoned and recently had a 2 people pass away. i had noticed the house for these reasons: its right next to my house, they had a everything must go sell there because no one was there to pay anymore, i had known the couple personally, and i had learned info on the passings from the family so its not some kids playing a jokes. i am not one of those people who blames a recent death must mean a haunting. i had gone in the house and i remember making a joke "of course i am sure everyones going to claim this house is haunted now...so cliche" and i am not a person to blame every sound and creek on the paranormal...anyways after going in a few times i experienced really weird things it was almost like they thought they were living.. the first time i was upstairs and i heard someone open the front door talking to some people and i was terrified that they were going to know i was there and i hid in the closet then i heard someone upstairs but no one actually walk up the stairs which was weird to me but i got out of the closet and was going to tell the person i was sorry and i just wanted to see the house again...to my surprise absolutely no one was there and the front door was locked just as before. several other things have happened as well such as lights on and off in her room and doors closing cliche things i know but i searched for reasoning on why any of those things would happen all unknown. but what i am getting at is do you think there real? what are your beliefs? and if you have any, what are your experiences? sorry if its too long. have a good day :)

I'm not sure if it was ghosting or what but the place I lived in before I moved to where I am now had a few weird things going on. Well, mainly one strange thing but it happened a few times; enough to make me nervouse anyways. It was usually really late at night (or really early in the morning - depending how you look at it). My kids would be in bed and my boyfriend and I would be in the living room watching tv. When things got quiet; I'd hear running water and sure enough when I went into my kitchen the tap would be running. I'd turn it off only to have it come on about 1/2 an hour later. It started slowly but just before I moved I'd say it happened about once a month. I really don't know it it was ghosts or anything paranormal but it definatly wasn't normal.

thats what i noticed the more you start paying attention to strange happenings the more they start to happen...like the house i attend it use to just be her light that would turn on but now a small room next to kitchen turns on but more frequent then it use to...i wonder whats the reasoning... but did anything happen before the water started malfunctioning or did you stay at the house and it was already like that?

Nothing else happened, it was just the tap in the kitchen sink. I lived there for about 3 years. It first happened about 3 months after I moved in and continued until I left. It was a rental unit and I moved into it the day my best friend moved out. I was talking to her about it one day and she said that it had never happened while she lived there so I'm not sure if it was something about the house or me; although it has never happened any other place that I've lived.

I am not sure. I have some experience before that I thought it was a doing of something supernatural but when I tried to investigate I can always find a natural and a rational explanation. Example of this is when at dawn I was awaken by the static sound of the TV which turned on by itself and the volume kept on increasing. At first I was scared and unplugged the TV. The next morning I called the technician and told me that the TV has a damage and needs to be repaired. There are a lot of anecdotal evidence about ghost. But their is no really concrete or scientific evidence of its existence. Well for me, I am not sure until I will be the one to experience it.

hmm yes i do believe that a lot of strange things have an explanation and i do always try to rule them out, but the house that i attended was very strange i remember being inside and we heard small things first like door closing and stuff but we assumed it was outside and we were talking and what not and then we heard a hard door slam and we got out fast. once we got outside we noticed that the light in her room upstairs was on which was strange because it wasnt on before i assumed it was a hobo though just living in the house( which doesnt make sense cause i lock the house). the light turned of 2 mins later while we were talking about the family and quickly turned right back on in like 20 secs so there was some break not just a flicker, but after that we went back inside to investigate... absolutely no one was up there and there were no light timers or bad wires and the switch was flipped up. when we left it turned off... so i dont really know how to explain that...any other ruling out i could do?

Why not ask a repairman to check the switch or some electrical wiring. I had an experience before that our doorbell just rang, I checked out but nobody's there. It happened twice but there was really nobody. The next day I called a repairman and again he told me that there was something wrong with our doorbell, he fix it and until now I have not expierence that problem again.

i can never forget that time when i saw a ghost. i was a kid and slept at my great grandma's house in our province. i was suddenly woken up by a movement coming from the mosquito net. when i looked, there was this ghostly figure of a man wearing Filipino peasant clothes and shaking the net. I panicked and tried to wake up my great grandma. she just looked at it and told me to go to sleep. and so i did. the next day i kept on telling my experience to my friends and other relatives. thats was some crazy experience.

Yes i believe as i had that experience some 25 years back when i was young and college boy and was returning from a movie called horror of dracula starring christopher lee with frineds and when at 12/30 night when the picture ended we returned home and every one went his own way and i too was in bicycle (that time) and the way i had to pass was totally bushy area on both side of the road . I was already scared as i was alone and young too as while going we all were there together but on return i was alone on that way for my house.Suddenly on the cross road i saw a woman standing on the road and asked me " please drop me to certain place which was on my way but i was so scared to see a lady on the loney road at night 12/30 or something and that too 25 years back when ladies were not given so much liberty .I said "No, i am sorry i am not going that way" and drove my cycle fast but i always felt that some body was sitting on my carrer at the back as i was feeling it hard to peddle with just me alone ,but i never had guts to look at the back weather some one was sitting at the back or not .But as soon as the place where she wanted me to drom came i felt as if some body has got down from the bicyle and i felt it very light and when i saw there was no one any where around and from that day when i returned home and i told my mother about it she told me never to go 9 to 12 show in the night and from that day i never went .though i did not see any one at the back of my cycle but i felt it and from that day i believe yes there are ghost though i was lucky enough that i was not harmed by that lady ghost

Yes ghost are real and they could cause you harm if they find you troubling them. I have several experiences as well where I was able to see a ghost with my own naked eyes. If that house is to be sold, I suggest that you need a priest or any person that can cleanse the house of evil entities.

yeah i know what you mean the thing is when it is sold im concerned because supposedly the retailer doesn't have to tell if someone has passed or if the house is a little creepy... so whom ever moves in a for sure going to warn them... and yes cleansing does help ive had my own house cleansed do to a year of really strange things happening to my family after my sisters passing...

Hi, jamiecornelius. I think that what you have seen here is very much real. The people that used to stay here is inhabiting this house. Their spirit is of course. I think that it is wise that you not go alone in this house anymore. It is best for you to stay out of this house. Try to keep your windows closed so that you don't have to look out the window at night. I hope that you will be okay. I would say contact the paranormal team. But this house if for sale, so it may now be Private Property. I hope that you will be safe. Take care.

I believe in that, I think that is their energy that's left on the house. Their presence been there for a long time so their energy is still in there. Probably thats the reason why you felt those things..

I personally see ghost as lingering energy that may take forms....I have felt that some certain places hold certain feelings/emotions, and I believe we all have felt that many times...Ghosts are moer likely lingering emotions and will just keep spinning around without purpose but I believe that it won't be forever because sooner or later the emotions will fade away just like memories that may not be lost completely but may has lost its importance..

I always do. I am not sure if i have a third eye or something but sometimes I can feel and see some weird objects or something like that. I was in the office one night with some officemate. Since I am working graveyard before, so usually ate my dinner or lunch (as what we called it) at around 2Am or 3am. One time, I was waiting for the elevator to open, the first elevator opened up, i didnt go since I am waiting for my officemate, when I saw this very big man wearing a black clothes went inside that elevator that opened. When my officemate arrive we reach and go immediately inside the elevator where that big man goes in. when were inside we didnt see anyone but only the two of us. I ask him if he saw someone went inside the elevator before us. He said yes. I feel goosebumps upon hearing it. I know were not alone in the elevator. Scary...

HI.. I didn't see God, but I believe God is there. I didn't see Ghost, but I believe in them. These are our beliefs and feelings, nothing else. You will not be able to keep your mind awake all the time. You will feel these things due to your unconscious mind. When you entered in the house you had a belief and thoughts about those. And you wanted to feel them in your mind. These most things happen in your unconscious or subconscious mind. The sounds can be the sound of wind blow and realize those experience. In the place previously I was working there is a weigh-bridge. Our guys were used to feel uncomfortable to work in that weigh-bridge at night shift. I asked them the reason. They told me they heard some different types of sounds there. so one night near about 11 pm I went there alone with my 2 wheeler and was waiting there for more than 1 hr and was talking with my parents. I didn't hear or feel anything, cause my mind was conscious. Every evil thing you will feel in your subconscious mind only.
