It’s no secret that the house I live in is a speakeasy for the souls who have moved on, O K, it’s #haunted! There, I said it! It can be quiet for months on end with no #paranormal events at all and then the next thing you know I’m smudging the hell out of it because something has decided to screw with our heads. Me, my 4 yr old granddaughter and my eldest daughter are usually the first to pick up on it, we’re kind of like spirit magnets. But it’s real, it exists and I would never doubt anyone who says that they have had a paranormal experience.
I got to thinking yesterday about a freaky thing that happened about a month ago. I was standing in my kitchen when out of the corner of my eye I saw a flash of white light. “S**t” I said out loud, this is a clear sign to me that something has entered the house. That is how I usually see them before I actually feel their presence around me, I didn’t say anything to anyone, but the next day my daughter sent me a text message telling me about an incident that happened the night before.
Apparently her and her boyfriend were sitting on the couch in the living room (which is directly off the kitchen) when the lid from their wastebasket popped off into the air and flew across the kitchen landing on the floor. They just looked at each other and neither one of them could utter a sound. Ya, that was definitely a #spirit prank . . . and it worked really well! So, several days later my wife and I were upstairs babysitting (they live in the apartment above ours, it’s a two family home) and we were sitting on the couch with our grandchildren watching a movie when the lid for the wastebasket went straight up in the air and took off across the kitchen. I looked at my wife and it looked like she was about to scream.
I very calmly walked into the kitchen, picked up the lid and yelled; “Do it one more time and I’m sending you out of here to someplace you really don’t want to go to!” Needless to say, I was pressured into smudging the house from top to bottom, every window, every door, every nook and cranny. Did it work? You tell me . . .Here’s the set up . . .my bureau is on the wall directly on my side of our bed. Standing next to it, leaning against the wall is my guitar. The next night we went to bed and I was having a difficult time falling asleep. My wife was out like a light (Thank God) sleeping next to me when all of a sudden something or someone deliberately and slowly strummed my guitar! I opened my eyes fully expecting to have someone staring back at me trying to make me have a heart attack, but luckily that wasn’t the case. My wife never heard a thing which is good because if she did, she probably would never sleep in there again. There’s always something #paranormal going on in my house, how about yours?
