Paranormal injuries come back

The paranormal is fascinating. We often find hope in the thought that there is an afterlife. Seeing a ghost can be comforting, and some hauntings are benevolent. They can even be helpful when a sweet spirit is involved. However, we all know that not every spectral encounter is nice. There are things out there that seem to want to hurt us.

Some people say that these violent entities are merely thought forms manifested outward; that we somehow create the entity with our unconscious minds. While I do believe this is true in some cases, I do not believe it is true in all. In fact, there are downright intelligent hauntings where unknown information is passed to residents at a haunted location in connection with bad activity. This previously unknown information will be verified to be true, and no one involved in the paranormal location will have known this information prior. It suggests an intelligent haunting.

It isn’t simply a spook repeating the same action day by day. These hauntings are different. And when people come across such places, injuries can occur. No matter what anyone says, you can get hurt in a haunted location.

While I know that too many TV shows and movies play up the violent angle of the paranormal, it does not mean that a person cannot be wounded in a haunted location. A person can be hurt when something manifests. There are several ways this can happen:

  1. The person panics, runs, trips, and falls.
  2. The energy the entity uses to manifest drains energy from a living person. This makes the person tired and more susceptible to injury.
  3. People may be so scared of a paranormal manifestation that they unknowingly use their own minds to manifest an injury on their bodies. It is mind over matter.
  4. An entity may lash out and actually cause injury.

When the damage appears to be caused by an entity, I have found that the wound can resurface at another time. What I mean is, I have known people who have gone into a malevolent haunted location and suffered harm. The injuries include strangulation marks, cuts, scratches, burns, and other problems. These injuries coincide with an intelligent entity which conveys information. In these cases, the victims have no ties to the entity. For example, a family will move into a home and bad things happen. They don’t know who or what is haunting the location. An investigator goes in but has no prior connection to the location.

In these types of hauntings, when people get hurt, there are instances where the injury heals but then comes back later. I’ve seen cases where the burning, bruising, scratching resurfaces a year later. Sometimes this occurs years later. This coincides with other paranormal activity rearing its ugly head again.

Is the entity back?

Does the person’s cell memory recreate the injury when paranormal activity returns?

It is hard to determine the exact cause. However, it is interesting that the reappearance of the injury goes hand in hand with paranormal activity acting up. This suggests that there could be a connection to an actual entity. I know many researchers will brush this off and state that it is just a person creating a poltergeist unconsciously. Yet we do not know all factors when it comes to the unconscious mind acting out. We don’t know everything about other dimensional entities. They do exist, and we would be unwise to dismiss that.

It does seem like entities do return to people they have hurt. As many investigators will tell you, if you open a portal or line of communication with something from elsewhere, you do not know what you are speaking to and what it can do. You also may not know how to shut down the open channel.

There is a connection between the appearance of something paranormal and human injury. It does happen. It is fascinating that an old injury would come back after a long period of time. What do you think? Why would this happen?

Do we create ghosts with our minds?

Copyright Deborah S. Kauflin, Ph.D.

Are ghosts simply thought forms? Do we make them up with our own energy? There are many scientists who theorize that ghosts are no more than a product of our own thoughts and energy. The hypothesis is that we create them ourselves. The idea is that if you make up a back story about a fake ghost and put energy into the belief, then an entity will form from people’s energy and unconscious thoughts that matches the back story.

For example, there have been experiments where groups of people set out to create a ghost. These research groups planned their ghost. They made up a list of characteristics of a fake person who was said to have died. They then try to make contact with the spirit they created. They held séances and asked questions in an attempt to get responses such as knockings or moving objects.

What these groups found was that they could get responses from their made up ghost. They would ask questions about things that they had written about the ‘ghost.’ In response, they got such things as knocking sounds. However, what they found was that the ghost could only respond to things which were put into the dossier when he was being created. He couldn’t answer questions about things that were not put into the fake bio.

But things get stranger from there. An unexpected outcome puzzled researchers. When they created these ghosts, there was more to them. That is, the ghosts they made up became independent and began to act on their own. The ghost would be there whether the researchers were at the location or not. In some cases problems arose and poltergeist activity picked up. Unwanted happenings would begin, and an entity which they believed that they could control all of a sudden became something that they couldn’t control.

Because of this, some researchers question whether it was ever a thought form to begin with. They suggest that it was another spirit pretending to be the ‘made up’ ghost all along. Are these playful or malicious entities that are using gullible researchers to manifest? Are there entities out there waiting for the chance to tap into group thought and energy so that they can act out?

We are not sure. However there are some troubling flaws in the ghost creation theory. Though it could account for some hauntings, it certainly does not explain all of them. In some cases, those who experience a haunting at a property have no knowledge of ghosts attached to the land. In fact people move in ‘blind’ to the history of the land. Then they experience apparitions and other ghostly manifestations when they have had no knowledge of those who once lived in the house. They can’t create it because they don’t know the history of the land. They only learn about the ghost once they have experienced dreams or apparitions which identify the ghost. When they investigate, they find out that the ghost’s identity matches what they have been seeing and dreaming about.

Basically the ghosts came first in these cases. Knowledge of the ghost came second. Though some may argue that someone could have ‘created’ the ghosts at some prior time, what about properties that have no history of hauntings? What about land that has no legends and no prior activity at all? What about these hauntings that spring up where owners have no prior knowledge and there is no known history of who has lived on the land? In these cases, the people didn’t create a ghost. No one before them made it up. It just happens.

Furthermore, there are paranormal researchers who question whether the scientists actually make up the ghosts at all in their experiments. They point out that it is possible that spirits or other entities imprint the information on the scientists’ unconscious. That the bio ‘created’ by scientists wasn’t fake at all; it was what spirits were communicating before the experiment.

Perhaps ghost creation isn’t creation at all but merely a method for spirits to manifest. We do know entities need energy, and what better way to get it than to feed off a group excited to do research? Maybe it is possible to have both. There may be both spirits of the dead and thought forms too. At this time we honestly can’t rule out either. However there is evidence which can point to both being true at the same time.

There is so much to learn in this fascinating field. And every day holds promise for us to open more doors and learn about the unexplained.

Crackling sound before paranormal activity

Photo by Killian Eon on Pexels.com

Copyright Deborah S. Kauflin, Ph.D.

When you examine paranormal cases and look for patterns, you can profile characteristics of activity. To study it, you look at three time frames:

  1. Before
  2. During
  3. After

Before the activity. During the activity. After the activity.

In examining the before phase, one common thread we find is a sound. Immediately before a paranormal event, there will be a crackling sound. People describe it as sounding like when a person gets an electrical shock. There is a very short period of time, and then paranormal activity occurs.

Crackling sound and then paranormal. What activity might happen?

First, you may see an apparition. A ghost can appear right in front of you.  Witnesses have described seeing a ghost materialize before their very eyes. The apparition is transparent and often people cannot see the entire figure. Part of the body will be missing.

Next, you may feel as if you are being touched. Some describe this as a pleasant experience, like a tinging sensation. There are even people who claim to have sex with spirits and say it is the best sex they ever had! These are the pleasant experiences. Often people hear the crackling sound before being touched.

In bad paranormal cases, people will get hurt. They will be scratched or choked. There have been cases where marks appear on the victim’s neck right in front of witnesses while the victim is being strangled. In some instances, burns will appear on the skin. I have witnessed this myself. You are more likely to hear the crackling sounds when malevolent activity takes place.

Another element of the paranormal you may experience after the crackling sound is the movement of objects. Something may fall from a shelf or even fly across the room. There will be no wind or ground shaking to make this happen. There is another energy at work.

Sometimes the crackling sound will be followed by whispering voices. No one can seem to find the source of the voices. The phantom conversation is difficult to make out, and it is not uncommon for people to say they can’t understand what is being said.

What causes the crackling noise? Why does it precede paranormal activity? Why don’t we always hear it? There are a few potential explanations. First, in poltergeist cases, there is always some sort of high geomagnetic, electromagnetic, or hydroelectric energy. Perhaps the entities need this energy to interact with us. Somehow the entities draw on the energy to get strength to manifest. Maybe when the entities are fully charged, we hear the crackling sound. Perhaps it is like lightning where the strength of the charge is too much for the atmosphere’s insulating properties. Again, it could be that when the entity is charged up, we hear the crack and then the energy is released. So we hear it before paranormal manifestation because it shows something is fully charged which then leads to activity. When the sound is not heard, it does not mean that the charge has not taken place. It may mean that it is not over charged, so we don’t hear it every time.

Sound is only one component of paranormal activity. However it is an important one. It demonstrates that a process is happening which involves energy. It is clear that somehow ghosts, spirits, etc. need energy to manifest and interact. Entities are able to tap into energy sources to draw power. How exactly they do that we do not know. There are theories of somehow linking with the energy through consciousness. But for now, we do not have the answers. As you study more about the paranormal, you see how complicated and fascinating it is. It is not ‘woo woo.’ It is real and involves a lot of the hard sciences.

Paranormal lights & hauntings

Copyright Deborah S. Kauflin, Ph.D.

If you are a paranormal investigator, then you are familiar with these things. In some of the most haunted locations worldwide, investigators capture a particular form of paranormal phenomenon, especially when there are physical manifestations. This phenomenon looks like a small moth or lights which streaks across the room. Some say they look like small comets with light tails. When the small lights go around the room, it is common for them to actually enter a person in the room. At that point, the person will experience headaches, dizziness, and nausea. They also will feel cold and sometimes out of sorts. In other words, people touched by these things can almost feel drugged.

The lights are some sort of paranormal contact. There are several theories as to what they are.

  1. Alien
  2. Ghost
  3. Interdimensional entity
  4. Biophoton produced by people

First, the lights could be aliens who are foreign to our planet. The truth is that we don’t know what an alien would look like. They could literally be anything. Why not a form of light? Though the lights are more commonly associated with a haunting, there have been recorded cases where alien abductees have video of themselves with the lights circling them. This happened after the abductions.

Could it be ghosts? Do those who have crossed over present as the moth-like lights. These tend to be highly active cases. Perhaps those who die change into this form of a light energy which can be seen by our cameras.

Another option is an interdimensional entity. Much like an alien, they could look like just about anything. Maybe there are times that something from another plane of existence makes its way into our world and causes havoc. Some theorize that when we first used the atomic bomb, we ripped a hole into another dimension. There is nothing to say that an interdimensional creature could not be here. And again, we would have no idea how it would look.

Then we have the idea that it is a living agent causing the lights. Researchers are studying biophotons which are produced from human energy. Cameras can capture this light energy. Since these phenomena present as forms of light, maybe it is just us projecting our unconscious outward. People may not even know they are doing it. However, given the right conditions, poltergeist activity can manifest along with the lights. Who is to say that it couldn’t be us putting out biophotons? If you want to get really creative, you could argue that all of these answers are true. Different locations which demonstrate a variety of paranormal phenomena may be caused by different things.

I have interviewed and studied over 150 alien abductees from all around the world who have had remarkably similar experiences. In these cases, there was physical evidence left behind in the form of body implants, missing fetuses, radiation burns, and more. This alien abduction phenomenon leads us to the doorstep of ET’s.

Dr. Julie Beischel has done fantastic research into afterlife communication from the deceased which points to spirits being involved. Dr. Barry Taff is famous for his exceptional work into poltergeist phenomena with humans as the living agent. This could mean that we are the culprits. And Paul Eno has done much research about parasitic interdimensional entities who feed off of our fears. Anymore, not one of these theories is far-fetched. All of this interesting research points to the existence of a multitude of suspects. It is a strange world that we live in, and as we learn more about the invisible world around us, it gets even weirder.

I’m always open to hearing theories or if you have experienced this. It may take a while for me to respond because I get so many emails. But I do respond if I receive it.

If you think you have a ghost, ask what it wants

Copyright Deborah S. Kauflin, Ph.D.

The lights in your home go on and off. Doors open and close by themselves. People sense something strange in your house. There is unexplained knocking. Things move on their own. Out of the corner of your eye, you see a male figure stroll down the hallway and through the wall. Through the wall! What in the world is happening?

At this point, you probably are scared out of your wits. Who wouldn’t be? After all, you have a spook in your home. You don’t know who this is. You don’t know WHAT this is. Does it mean you harm? Is it out to get you? Was this his home? Why is he there in your home?

This is a lot to take in during your already hectic life. You’ve got a job, relationships, family, friends, and responsibilities. Who has time for a ghost? Unfortunately, if you have one, then you have to deal with it. These things can become obtrusive and downright scary. Just being startled by something moving by itself could make you jump or trip. You could get hurt by that.

While you could call a psychic or paranormal team to help you, the most east way to handle this is to talk to the spirit. If you have never done this before, it can seem scary. Really scary. But don’t worry. Remember a ghost is just a person in spirit. If you saw a friendly old man walking down the street with his cane, would you turn and run away screaming from him when he smiled at you? Chances are you don’t. Well at least I hope you don’t.

So, if you see a figure of an old man walking down your hallway along with other strange happenings, consider talking to him. Introduce yourself and politely ask him who he is and why he is there. You may just get an answer. Also, it may help if you ask what the ghost needs. It may simply be that the spirit wants to let you know he is there. He may be worried about the house or even you!

There may be a perfectly innocent reason for the ghost to be there. In fact, he probably doesn’t want to harm or scare you at all. He may be surprised he has caused you stress. It is for this reason that you kindly but firmly tell the ghost that you need peace and quiet. Tell the spirit that he or she must let you sleep and not frighten you. Chances are, this will greatly help your situation.

You will be amazed how well this works. More often than not, it does help. If it does not, you can always call a paranormal team or psychic. But before you do that, try this simple step. It won’t cost you anything, and it could solve the problem.

Dark attacks after investigating a haunting

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

Spirits attack people.They really do. Though some people will find it hard to believe, paranormal investigators get a big target on their backs once they investigate a negative haunting. 

Dark entities have long memories. If you had anything to do with interrupting their plans, they will come calling for you. It is your choice whether you believe this or not.However, too many people have gone through this hell not to pay attention to the warnings.

Evil entities are known to wait long periods of time before they strike. So you may think that nothing happened, but after a while, you will notice some unusual patterns.

First, investigators will often experience poltergeist activity in their homes.The activity includes loud bangs, footsteps, voices calling to you, cold spots, scratches, falls, and things moving on their own, just to name a few.

At the same time, there are nightmares or weird dreams. Evil will announce that it is on its way by communicating with your unconscious. If it doesn’t rattle things around your home, it will enter your dreams. It may do both. You will have bizarre and often scary nightmares. These usually occur within 3 months of the investigation.  The dreams are powerful, and you know something abnormal is happening. Some blow it off, chalking it up to stress. Yet, it isn’t always just stress. Remember, you entered into something when you engaged it, and it learned who you are.

There are investigators who get sick after their investigations. Everything from strokes to heart attacks have occurred. Other investigators have more subtle issues. Ongoing headaches will take over after a life of having none. Autoimmune disorders pop up. Neurological issues develop. Things just won’t be right with your health.

Then you will experience all kinds of bad luck. People in your life will die unexpectedly. Your pets get sick or die. Your home has problem after problem. Your car suddenly acts up. Work issues begin. People will act differently around you, not like their normal selves. Your life will become strange as unexplained weird things happen, and it won’t stop.The string of bad luck is continuous. That is the key.

Not all who investigate will have these things at first. But with time, you will have something happen at some point. You will experience negative effects from dealing with dark entities. You will know because it will be incessant, bad, and unusual. In other words, you will have weird after weird bad thing happen to the point that those around you raise an eyebrow. People will back away from you. Everyone will see that it is not normal. 

After a while, you will find yourself unable to relax. Anxiety will take over. This leads to more sleeplessness which makes you less alert and prone to accidents. And you WILL have accidents.

I tell you this not to scare you but to prepare you. Too many people jump into ghost hunting not knowing what the repercussions could be. I personally know people who have experienced REALLY bad things after dealing with negative hauntings. You must prepare before you investigate. Protect yourself using tools from your belief system. Make sure you have your head on straight before you investigate. Even then, you still may experience horrible things, and if that happens, you will need to enlist the help of religious people and other experts to put the activity to rest. That is if it is simply a spirit. If it is aliens, then the dire situation is entirely different, and you are in real trouble.

I know people who have quit investigating the paranormal after having experienced something dark. These are not cowards. These are former police officers. So keep this in mind before you take on a project. Know your enemy and protect yourself. There are things out there which can hurt you.

Dark spirits come for bad people when they die

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin

Nurses have all kinds of stories to tell. They have seen everything. These wonderful people  are some of the strongest and most down to Earth individuals you will ever meet. Nurses who have dealt with dying patients have seen remarkable things. When you talk to a nurse, you will learn that they are caring and very straightforward people. They tell it like it is.

Having said that, let me tell you what I have learned from nurses about being around those who are dying. Something or someone comes to greet those who are crossing over. Who or what comes depends on the type of person you are.

First let’s talk about the good. Nurses report angelic entities entering a room right before sweet patients die. There is a peace surrounding these deaths. No wailing. No gnashing of the teeth. A calm envelops the patients. Often the dying people will call out with joy as they see long dead family members and friends coming to collect them. There is little fear, only smiles as the dying see their long lost loved ones. Nurses report that the rooms feel peaceful. In some cases, medical personnel actually see angels or spirits themselves. The entities are right in front of them. They say they could almost touch them. Blissful is the way to describe such the dying who are going ‘home.’

On the other hand, nurses report something terrifying when it comes to bad people. In cases where miserable, angry, hostile, violent, and abusive patients get close to death, something diabolical comes. Demons? Devils? Whatever arrives sends the patients into a full blown panic.

There have been a lot of situations where nurses report family members telling them how awful the dying patient was in life. Family talks and talks and talks. Death makes old repressed emotions come to the surface. So family will tell medical personnel all about the terrible things the patient had done to them. Sometimes families do not tell these stories until after the death. One nurse said he always knew when he was going to hear negative stories about the patient after death. It was because the only ones who were fighting tooth and nail against an invisible reaper were those described as rotten in life.

In these cases, the stories are similar. As the patient gets closer to death, the room gets unexplainably cold. Staff and the patient get the feeling that something has come into the room. It gets colder, and the patients freak out, desperately try to fight off whatever is there. The patient will scream, yell, and punch in an attempt to stop the darkness which has come for them.The dying will ask the nurses if they see it (the entity).  The dying beg for help. In some instances, a few nurses have seen a dark mist. They stated that it did not feel friendly and it made them scared or uncomfortable.

One nurse said “I swear I thought whatever was there for this man was going to literally pull him out of bed right in front of me. He was fighting so hard. I’ve never seen a patient flip out like that.”

Nurses will often get an order for more medication to calm the patient. However, it does not work. The dying are literally kicking and screaming to the grave. But no matter how hard they fight, the grave always wins. The darkness will get what it came for.

The question is: what is coming for them? Is it the Devil? Satan? Demons? Whatever it is, it scares the dying so much that they flail and kick and scream to try to stop it. You might think it is just a side effect of medicine or hallucinations at the end of life. Yet, medical staff have witnessed the dark entities as well. It isn’t just one patient seeing it. And the dark shadow thing only comes for those who were described as being rotten. In any event, none of us want to see this when we are close to the end. I think there is a fate far worse than anything we could see on this Earth waiting for those who abused life.

I think what it comes down to is that the narcissists and psychopaths never believed they would have to pay for what they had done in this life. When they realize the bill is due, they make a futile attempt not to pay. It never works though.

I asked the nurse who thought an entity might pull her patient out of the bed in front of her, what she believed about what had happened. She sighed and asked if I wanted the truth. I told her, of course I wanted the truth. Then she said “I think it dragged him to hell.”

Haunted by the demonic old hag

copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin

One of the most terrifying hauntings is the one that involves the old hag. If you are living with this, then you have a real problem on your hands. You likely have a portal in your home, and something horribly dark has found its way in.

The demonic hag never begins her haunting quickly. She likes to take things slowly. So you might not even realize she is there for a while. You will notice little things first. 

She comes after dark. Her favorite game is to wait until you are alone. Then she slowly makes soft noises to get your attention. She will lightly tap on your window. She will creak your closet door open. You will hear bangs on the floor. Sometimes footsteps can be heard. A lot of people will hear a distant cry or scream, like a banshee. 

Then when she has your attention, you will begin to see shadows moving around.Sometimes the shadow will peek out behind a door. Other times, you will see a full blown shadow person marching down your hallway. The shadow game goes on for a long time. The shadow will appear one place and then disappear into a wall.

With time, families will see the hag’s face slowly materialize in the darkness. The face is that of an old, decrepit woman.Her eyes will be black or even red. This spirit likes to hide under your bed or in your closet. She will come out during the day but mainly enjoys terrorizing her victims at night

As she gets closer to you, her face will fully appear. What you will notice is her long crooked nose, bad teeth, and black or red eyes. She also likes to wear a hood. Some people have described her as looking like the old hag from Snow White. 

She really is a wretched creature who has a bad smell. That’s what people point out: she has a putrid scent. You may find yourself alone at night, then you catch a whiff of something totally rotten. The knocking and footsteps begin, and then you know you are in trouble. If she really is out to get you, she will materialize right in front of your face as she wakes you up in the middle of the night. She likes to come calling around 2 AM. 

This is what people would refer to as a demonic entity. Basically it is a threatening haunting. It means something dangerous has slithered its way into your home. It has the intention to do harm and will if you don’t get help. These hauntings are so strong that many people will see this hag. They get hurt. And the injuries never fully resolve. This thing is scary and can seriously hurt you. It can kill your pets.

I don’t want to scare anyone, but people have had terrible results from living in a home with this parasite. It feeds off of your fear and gets stronger the more afraid you get. It is sinister and will ruin your life. Many years ago I did not believe this stuff happened. But after over a decade of studying this, I am certain these things exist. They are real. They are here, and they are dangerous.

I have actually seen this thing. While working with a family on a vicious haunting, I had a horrible nightmare. It was her, the hag. Dressed in black, she was looking away. Slowly she turned her head toward me. She was smiling an evil smile, and I knew immediately what was happening to that family. It took three separate holy men to come out to the home and get rid of it. The creature is very stubborn. It is like a tick that burrows into your skin. It won’t willingly let go.

So don’t make the mistake of thinking you can handle it on your own. You will need assistance. Get rid of it before it harms you or your loved ones. It is for real.

Is your cat sensing a ghost?

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

Believe it or not animals are ghost detectors. In fact, they can sense all kinds of paranormal activity. They can spot a ghost, an alien, fairies, and all kinds of spectral entities. If you wonder whether something is in your home, look no further than your cat. Your furry friend will alert you when something is there.

Amazingly, cats are hypersensitive to the supernatural. They will actually seek it out. When you are in your home, you might notice that your cat will prowl around the perimeter of your home. Watch your cat when he is doing this. He’s looking for something. When an entity is around, your cat will take several daily tours around your rooms. You will notice that your cat will pause and look up. Sometimes he may hiss and arch his back. This tells you something is there. 

Next, your kitty will actually try to speak to you with his meowing. He will vocalize and make noises to try to show you there is a spirit with you. When he won’t stop meowing, be on the lookout.

There are times that a bad spirit is lurking around. When this is happening, your cat will do one of two things. He will either attack it (or try to), or he will hide. You will notice your cat peeking out from a hiding place, watching. He will be reluctant to come out. This is because something is there, and it is scaring him. 

Often, when this occurs, your cat will have a change in personality. A once friendly and loving animal will become mean and want to be alone. On the other hand, a cat who was always standoffish will want to be with you all the time. Watch out for any extreme change in behavior. 

There are even times when a spirit can make your cat sick. This is a dangerous situation. If you see the change in your cat’s behavior and all of sudden, your furry friend gets ill, then be suspicious. At this point, you may have to get someone to come to your home and do a blessing to remove the entity. Naturally you don’t want to let anything to hurt your pet. 

If you are asking whether a spirit is wandering around your home, just look to your cat. You can even ask your cat if he sees anything. When you ask, watch him. He might just lead you right to it.

Is a ghost scaring you?

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

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:

  1. 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.
