Has something scared you but you don’t know exactly what it is? Do you think something may be haunting your home? If so, you probably have a spirit in your house. If you strongly believe that something is there, then something is there.
I know how scary it can be when you think that a ghost is lurking around every door. It is more common than you think. I’ve been studying the paranormal for 15 years and from my experience, spooky encounters are becoming more frequent. Some say it is because the veil between our realm and the other side is thinning. Whatever the reason, I’m seeing an increase in these cases.
Some signs that you are haunted are:
- Hearing footsteps when no one is there
On of the most common signs is when people in your home hear phantom footsteps. It is like someone is walking around when no one is there. One of the weird things about this is you will go look for where it is coming from, and it will change to always be behind you no matter where you go. It is like these entities like playing games.
2. Hearing voices or muffled voices when no one is around
Another sign is when you hear someone talking or calling to you when no one is there. Often the voices will be muffled. You won’t be able to understand what is being said. An important key here is that more than one member of the household hears it. In most cases, multiple people hear these sounds.
3. Pets reacting to something when nothing is around
This is a huge one. If your animals are seeing things and freaking out, then you know something is there. Animals hear frequencies we don’t. They see things we don’t. They will alert you when there is a presence in your home. Dogs will bark, growl, and spin in circles. Cats hiss, arch their backs, and even attack what the air. What is happening is they are going after a spirit. Your pets may come to you, trying to lead you somewhere. They are trying to warn you. Animals are some of the best paranormal detectors.
4. Unusual, repetitive dreams
You may have weird nightmares night after night. You will dream about a person being killed or a tragic event. It happens over and over. You will see the same unknown people you have never seen before. You will be able to describe these unknown people to others. Bad nightmares include seeing some kind of creature. If you see a monster, that means you have something much worse than a ghost.
5. Strange shadows moving around
Sometimes spirits manifest as a shadow. They look like a dark form moving around your home. Many people report these things slinking along the floor, as if crouched down. It is creepy. People who witness this are more likely to have a negative haunting.
6. Electrical appliances acting weird
When spirits or ET’s are around, electrical equipment goes haywire. Batteries drain immediately. TV’s and lights go on an off. Toys without batteries may ‘come to life.’ This is so powerful it can even impact your cars and trucks! If you have spirit activity, you will have all kinds of difficulty with appliances, electric, and motors.
7. Objects disappearing and reappearing someplace else
For some reason, entities seem to have fun moving our stuff around. Your keys may disappear from the counter and reappear in the bathroom drawer. Objects will be moved. You will be sure you closed your kitchen cabinet doors. Then you to into the kitchen, and they are open! You will notice if these types of things are going on. There’s no way to ignore it.
Life is hard enough. You don’t need this kind of stress. This above is not a total list of haunted happenings. These are simply a few things to look for if you are wondering what is going on in your home.
You may not know where to begin if something like this is happening to you. Let me tell you, there are all kinds of people who will be happy to help.There are local paranormal groups, researchers, psychics and others out there who will assist you.
While some hauntings are benign, many are not and cause all sorts of problems. They can even make you sick. Reach out if you are worried because help is available. This is especially true if you have children in your home. Don’t suffer alone.
