i moved in with my bf a yr ago and we found out that a 3 yr old boy had died in our bathroom, everything was fine up until about 3 weeks before our baby was born, first off we noticed that our top kitchen draw kept opening by itself, we would find it open about 4 times a day and one night my partner went to the kitchen closed the draw then went to the toilet, when he went back to the kitchen it was open again. everyone else in the house was asleep. it really started to freak him out but i didn't take much notice and just shrugged it off as being weird, just before baby Jordyn was born i started hearing something that sounded like foot steps on the bathroom floor but when i looked nothing was there... she was born 5/9/12 and since then its just gotten worse, one night i woke up as if someone told me to get up and leave the room and to leave Jordyn in there by herself, i automatically found that strange no matter how half asleep i was, i then took her out to the lounge room to change her on our change table (my partner was asleep on the lounge) i felt as if someone big and tall was standing right behind me staring at me, i turned around to look but no one was there, also when i turned around to look his feeling just overcame me like i was being backed into a corner, like i was so small and insignificant, i left the lounge room and took her straight back to bed, that was when i started to get freaked out. since that incident my partner swore he saw a little boy run from the bathroom into our room, when i checked no one was there, just last night he swears he heard our little boy whisper 'dad' but when he checked our lil boy, he was fast asleep, one night i thought i heard our lil boy taking and playing with his toys, again he was asleep, Jordyn looks in one corner of our bedroom all the time and she could be in a deep sleep then when i leave the room within minutes she screams like someone just pinched her... its getting worse as she gets older, i have never heard of anything like this can anyone explain what is happening? and what could happen??? the thought of anything happening to my children absolutely scares the death out of me

Did the problems start before or after you found out about the death. It's very easy to let your imagination run away with you when you find out about something creepy and protective mommy hormones will only make it worse. If you fear for your children's safety, move.

people have the right to know about burning a plant or cleaning with salt to promote positive and clean environment. blanketing the subject with fear, and suggesting to hide this information (which is so easy to access on so many different levels) is just silly to be very honest. i mean yeah, if this were to be a rare case of a dark entity then take matters into other hands i definitely agree with that. but everyone can't just run away at the sound of tapping on the walls. we can just change jobs or schools the moment someone calls us a name - its virtually the same issue, setting boundaries. either set them, or have fun continuously running away because of fear-based perceptions. and yeah absolutely, maybe this little spirit just doesn't want to be forgotten and needs some loving attention? who knows, you never know until you try something. we've lived in houses with shadows, footsteps, and tapping on walls, no one's ever been hurt, nothing to crazily dark, just spooked out once in awhile - but after awhile these profound experiences are actually exciting!

hey, I totally agree with the the comment above. Have you heard of smudging your house by burning sage? Sage is a cleanser of stagnant energies, if you feel uncomfortable then request someone with a little more experience. Sea salt. Or better yet, Himalayan salt... wash the walls with filtered water and salt (not table salt), vocalize clearly and confidently that you only welcome positive energies, and that negative ones aren't accepted in your territory. You can also fill a glass jar with water & salt and put it in the baby's room or even in the kitchen where the incidents repetitively happen. Research "cleansing methods" and there are millions of different ways you could handle the situation - most commonly you will need sage or salt. Once in awhile my little man will be laughing and playing with toys, and in an instant BURST into hysterical crying with fierce wide eyes staring at "the wall" but my hubby and I know he see's something. The mind of a child is so receptive to its environment that they pick up on things that adults don't. This kind of stuff happens and that's why I keep a Himalayan salt lamp in babies room (which is also good for people with allergies - but that's a whole other topic). Just remember to breath during those profound moments! Good luck!

Peta,

No a Jehova's witness will not do this, they don't "bless". From what I know and understand. You would need a conventional priest.

Call a priest and have your house annointed. If that not your thing then I would suggest moving.

Sally, as much as that may be true, her children are seeing it. I personally had no idea about the death or the spirit, and all the things that happened to me were well before I found out.

I really have a hard time talking about this for fear of bringing back bad spirits, but since I have moved, I will talk a bit about my experience and my sisters.



She (my sister) owned an apartment house that a women died in. We will call her Cindy..,.I don't really want to use her real name. She slowly started making appearances once my sister moved in. She had JUST had her baby 1 week before buying and moving. The baby had colic terrible and would constantly scream (or seriously maybe not really colic. I have always wonder if it was something else). As the baby got older and could talk, she would say weird things like someone was in the corner or in the tub with her. My sister had another baby, but he was never the target. Just the older girl. Sometimes she would simply be lying in bed with my sister and her legs would shoot up into the air like someone was pulling her up. My sister would try to push her legs down and couldn't. Her daughter would be screaming and crying. This happened pretty often. More things happened, but that was always the scariest.



Before all of this really started happening, my now husband and I went and stayed at her apartment house for a week. It has 2 apartments connected by a long dark stairwell, and they were on the second floor while they were fixing up the first floor. It was empty but they were painting and stuff. Well, we were at the end of our stay there. Think we were leaving in a couple of days and my husband was tired so he went into the bedroom and I was dozing off and on waiting for my sister, her husband the baby to come home. They were going to the airport to pick up my bro in laws niece and friend. So here I am no clue anything is wrong with the house. I was also doing some laundry or something. So I kept having to go down to the first floor apartment, and turn on a light in the spare room so I could see how to get to the basement. Like I said, they were fixing up the place and painting, so there were rollers on the floor and tools and stuff. Anyhow, my third or 4th trip down to the basement, one of the rollers magically appeared right where I kept stepping to turn the light off and on when I need light. I nearly skid across the floor and was wondering how the fuck that got there.



So, back to me dozing on the couch. It was getting late, maybe between 10-11 pm. I clearly hear my sister and 3 other pairs of feet coming up the stair well. I sit straight up waiting for them to open the door. Mind you, where I was is a clear shot to the door but way across the other side of the apartment. I waited....no one came in. I called out. No one. I slowly got up...pretty freaked out. Walked to the door, NO ONE was there. I went straight back to the couch and turned the tv up a bit weirded out. Wondering what I heard.



They finally came home. I told them "huh..you wanna hear something weird" and told them about the footsteps. And the roller. They gave each other really odd looks and I seriously thought they were joking when they said "so you have met Cindy". They told us about strange occurrences. Then I started thinking back about our stay there. Our very first day, when we were unpacking, my husband kept asking why I hung his shirts up in a certain spot. I kept telling him I didn't. Then at nights, sometimes in the apartment it sounded like an empty plastic shopping bag had an empty soda can in it being blown around the apartment. I always figured it was some weird acoustic thing from outside. In the basement, strange devil books would magically appear right in line of site (They were not my sisters books, lots of items were still in the house from the previous owner.).



Other strange happenings did occur. But that is the gist of it. My sister and her family were being tortured well after we left. My sister would try to be nice to "cindy" but it would get worse. She would even set out nice peace offerings like flowers or presents. She would get meaner. So, someone told my sister to burn white sage walking from room to room telling "cindy" to leave. She had to be strong, and demanding. Almost mean. It did eventually get rid of her.



About 3-4 years later, Me and my family moved in and lived there for almost 4 years. In the fucking room she died in. The room she tried to kill me by putting a roller under my feet. I never felt comfortable in that house, and never mentioned her name. I am so glad I am out of there. At last. But I still feel like I cannot say her name or she will follow me. My sister and kids saw the worst of everything. If she can do it, so can you. I know the feeling of not being able to move out...but man if you can....do. Burn the white sage, tell that boy to leave. This is no longer his house. Take your kids seriously. If you fear for them, listen to your instincts. The only people that are really going to believe you are those that have lived through something like that, or have known others that have.

Peta , DYI or go with clergy, unless you personally know a psychic. Some people will take advantage of your fear and rip you off. Let us know what happens. Minna

Hi Peta, What you can do is have the house blessed by a priest with holy water. Ask the child or whom ever you feel to please leave this is your home now (nicely) and to go towards the light and be in peace. That should help. You can also get some golden seal to put around your house. I agree with another person on the make the house yours, plants pictures, invite people over. A spirit in general do no harm but an ugly face can make anyone scream. I would also get a dog they are very sensitive to those things. Best of Luck, Christina

OK, if you believe this stuff.

Our house was supposedly haunted.. Indian buried in the front yard, builders daughter hanged herself.....former owner freaked , spray painted weird stuff on the walls and tried to burn it down. We got it cheap. Only thing happened was cats freaking in the kitchen , near where the girl died.

A dear friend and I blessed it ,every door and window marked with a cross in holy oil and prayers.

Doesn't make sense, sealing the entrances when the spirits are in already, but it worked.

Another friend who claims to be sensitive said we were too disruptive for the ghosts!

So, the big spirit has to go. I feel it's bad. It may not have ever been human. Doesn't matter the method, mostly your confidence and faith. Tell it it has no place in your happy home! It can't hurt you in any way except by playing with your mind. If you're Christian,evoke the power of Jesus and demand it. Use anything that makes you feel confident.

The child is benign or neutral, at worst mischievous He can't hurt your babe. If your're worried ,let Jordyn sleep next to you for a while., Infants can have nightmares. An infant wouldn't know to be frightened, and a spirit couldn't physically hurt them. Maybe just your tenseness rubbing off?

Fill your house with life, plants, pets, music ,friends, family.meals, all the good stuff. Dismiss the big guy [ it may take several encounters until you're mad enough] Love the poor child, encourage him to move on , if he can., but maintain sympathy. You can ask the kid why they're hanging around, but a 3 year old may not have a good answer.

If you're at the point where you can't stand it, move, although spirits can attach themselves to individuals, although it's not likely.

All houses come with stuff, raccoons in the attic. ghosts in the bathrooms, roller skating scars on the hard wood floors. Any house has the possibility of spirits , old houses from people living and dying, new houses that have been empty can be inhabited with things maybe worse.

Did your boyfriend have an ex that lived in this house? Did he live there before you with his parents or grandparents ? Is there some reason that you don't feel like it's your own? Curious, let me know how it's going. Minna

Last time I had a ghost in my house I burned a sage smudge. Walk the room in a counter-clockwise circle (counter-clockwise is for banishing). If it's actually a ghost or spirit, it should work. Like Cassandra said, sea salt is also very good for cleansing. Toni's suggestion is very good if you're ok with the spirit being there, provided he behaves himself.

Move house!!! Whatever is going on it is clearly upsetting and frightening, and you and your kids need to feel safe. Our (the 2 and a half year old) daughter saw her great grandfather (long dead) in our old house. We did a few cleansing things and talked to him, and he seemed to move on.

Best wishes to you and peace to whatever spirits live in the house xo

Peta, to answer your question of whether the spirit can hurt your child, most likely the spirit cant.

Alot of spirits like playing jokes and scaring people, but they normally cannot physically hurt you or your child.

I would move. I wouldn't want to upset any spirits by trying to cleanse them. That sort of information should've been disclosed.

Hmmmm....

Depends if you are religious enough to belong to a church... But in our culture, if something like this was happening, one of the first things you would do is to get a priest to come and bless the house. Most people said that that usually fixed things up. If not, then they do other things.. depending on what they feel comfortable of course...lol

Yes, some move. Others just put up with it.. and others dabble in other things.....

Sounds to me that the spirit of the child has a connection to the place you live in.

It is possible that he feels jealous of a new baby in the house, like sibling rivalry.

If you don't mind having a spirit around the house with you, but you just don't like its bad behavior, try acting like its mum. I know it sounds a little silly, but for example if the spirit is being mean to your child say to it that that was not nice and you will not put up with bad behavior.

The reason your child looks at the corner of your room is because children are able to see things that we cant. This usually goes away as they get older, because they start hearing things like "there are no such thing as ghosts". Try to find out the spirits name, it might really appreciate that.

If you really don't want this spirit to stay around you could try cleansing your home, although if you are not experienced in doing this I suggest hiring someone who is, because if you do it wrong you could end up making it worse.
