Living in a House with "Ghosts"

Updated on November 24, 2014

Haunted houses are not always creepy

When we think about haunted houses, we instantly think about spooky old houses, in a hill with an ongoing gray sky. But in real life, haunted houses come in all shapes and forms, and are situated all around the world. Not all of them are old, or stand on a hill with a scary history behind them.

A while back, I was looking at houses on a website, and one of the houses caught my attention. It was a very big, beautiful house, full of character, and the price seemed unreal to me. As I was looking through the photos, the last one caught my attention. It was the picture of a shed, in the back of the house, with a loft upstairs. The photo that they took from the outside, clearly shows what seemed to be the shape of a man, holding the curtain to the side, and looking right into the photo. It send chills down my back, and quickly I figured why that beautiful house was on the market for so cheap. I included the photo of the shed. If you zoom to the window on the top right, you will be able to see what I think I saw.

I am a big believer in the paranormal, maybe because I have had experiences myself. For the last 6 years, we have been living in a house full of activity. When I say activity, I mean paranormal activity. Its little things, like paintings moving or falling of the wall, things go missing and then show up right where they should have been, footsteps, not just at night, humming, laughter, and sometimes even what sounds as old 1950s music. This house is not old. It was constructed in early 2000. As much as I have researched, the house has had no negative history. But the realtor who rented us the house did tell us that it was addressed to them that certain things happen in this house that cant be held accounted for. Back then, we were still pretty young, so we just laughed and signed the contract.

Fast forward to some time later, things started to happen. You could even feel the presence, but never as a negative force. To me it felt like someone letting you know that they are there. It does catch you off guard, but it has never made me feel like it may be dark energy. As my previews article says, my children has seen what seems to be a woman, who is always smiling (as said to me by my 4 year old) and an older man, who seems happy.

This is the photo of the shed. If you look at the top right window, you can see what seems to be a man, looking out.


Paranormal experiences are not always apparitions

We know that when we see a movie about a haunted house, there is always an apparition, or someone crawling in the ceiling, or just images that are really unsettling, which after all that's what we want to see when we watch these movies. But what about in real life? I am not saying that apparitions are not real. I know I have never seen one, but instead, I have seen its energy. With this I mean, I have seen things move and fall. I have heard footsteps, laughter, even faint conversations. I believe that hauntings in real life, are a bit more subtle than what we are used to seeing in movies.

This experience has changed my views

Living in this house, has changed my thoughts on the paranormal. Now when I hear people saying their stories, I pay attention, instead of thinking "what are they talking about?" I have never seen anyone else but us here, but I know, that its not just us living here. I sage the house every week, just to keep the energy clean and at peace. I believe that we are all energy, and energy never stops existing.

So the next time you are in the market to buy a home, don't quickly dismiss that beautiful od Victorian because of the thought that it may be haunted, because after all, the haunting can really be in that new construction one you like instead.

      That is definitely a creepy picture but it is hard to say if it is really a ghoul or just the paradoeila phenomenon. I dont think I spelled that right. Anyhow, I am not doubting ghosts exist I'm just thinking this picture might be a trick of the eye. Gteat hub!

      It is very unsettling, because it is something that we have no control over. It makes us very curious though.

      Fascinating.Whenever I think that there is something paranormal going on,I try to think to myself "well,wouldn't you try to get attention too?" but,like many people I still find the thought of ghosts unsettling.I don't know why though...
