Signs of the Paranormal:Are You Being Haunted?

For many of us, the thought of being haunted is a little scary and we will do almost anything to convince ourselves that what we hear or see isn’t really happening. It’s not so much that we don’t trust our senses. It’s more of a concern over what others will think of us when we tell our story.

Just last night, as I climbed into bed and got myself comfortable I had a bit of an experience that I pretty much shook off as imagination until  I spoke to my husband this morning.

It began with a strange sound I couldn’t identify. To be honest it sounded like the rapid fluttering of wings, but it only lasted a few seconds and was gone. I called to the cat and got no response. I lay wondering if I should get up and explore the sound when I felt the cat leap onto the foot of the bed. I moved my foot to give her room and looked down to discover there was no cat there. Now, this wouldn’t have struck me as so unusual if it hadn’t happened before … but it has and it gave me a bit of a start. Still, I was convinced somehow I was imagining it all.

I lay there in silence (with the blankets pulled over my head) and listened. My husband was in the living room watching TV, so I knew I had backup should anything happen.

I began to hear small rustling sounds in the wall at the head of bed. So that was it, a field mouse must have come in from the cold and was hiding out in my wall. I relaxed and vowed to put out some mousetraps. Tiny scratching and what I presumed was gnawing followed.

Suddenly, a rush of sound startled me. Something ran rapidly through the wall.  I grew up in an old house where mice in the wall was a nightly occurrence and this was no mouse. It was too big — too loud — and way too fast. Finally, I decided it must be a squirrel. Yes, that was it . A squirrel in the wall. Convinced I had solved the mystery, I went to sleep.

This morning my husband listened as I retold my story. He looked at me and told me that the wall I was talking about had no crawl space and was completely filled with insulation. (He had installed the wall himself when we moved in a year ago.)What makes it worse is that is the same wall I heard the loud scratching in a few weeks ago.

If you are experiencing unusual activity in your home and simply cannot find a logical reason for it, it just might be paranormal. This article describes the types of activities that might indicate the presence of a ghost or spirit in your home. It suggests ways to determine if the cause is paranormal or if there may be other logical explanations. As for  me, well, my husband will be exploring the attic later for any signs to explain the cause of the noises I am hearing.

  1. Has anyone had there body arch and bend like in a serious way when asleep? In 2011 I had experienced my dad die I found him and two days after that at night when I was in bed had stuff move and fall in the room I slept in I then went and slept on the couch downstairs I was awoken suddenly with my body arching and twisting not like a seizure but in unnatural ways, it went on for a minute or so and then I went flat and laid there it happened for 3 nights I went to E.R. two of those nights doctor said there’s nothing wrong with you. Since then I have developed a severe case of Anxiety and depression I felt the symptoms of my Anxiety right when the first night of hearing and seeing objects fall that in no way should of and also when this happened in 2011 I felt like my anxiety and my not being able to figure out what was really going on happened, and still I feel like they just hit me right there and then when these things occurred those 3 straight days all at night around same times and it’s just stuck with me. those nights I was experiencing those symptoms and happenings. I feel since then they have just gotten worst to the point I take 7 medications for anxiety now and I have never been a drug user and was not on anything in 2011 not even a alcohol for I was on parole from getting out of prison when this happened I am a healthy 36 year old male now and was even more healthy then when this happened if anybody can relate with me or give me information It would be greatly appreciated and most likely give me a little relief from my anxiety this is a very important issue to me I had a recurrence of paranormal activity in 2014 with a sighting of a man following me on a path I turned around for a split second and when I turned back around to see if he was still nearly on my heels he was gone no where in sight to the left or right or anywhere just gone I would not care if you contacted me on Facebook or this website for I can find no information on internet to help me thank you very much

    • It is understandable that you would have problems with anxiety after these events, but I have never heard of anyone experiencing body arching and twisting. Maybe one of our readers can help you with that.

      • Thank you everything from my senses becoming more heightened to having a eye for many shadows in random places by no means is it psychosis but things have been so easy to pick up and absorb and I can call many many things before they happen I have always followed that feeling your body gives when something is off in a situation and since 2011 it’s been crazy spot on in many occurences

  3. When I was three months old I moved into an old white house in Portland, OR. My mother told me that when we moved in, strange things began happening. My mother found a key, a skeleton key, which went into no lock in the house. As soon as the key was found, all the doors in the house began to automatically lock and unlock themselves. She mentioned that the feeling in the house was very thick and dark. Then she mentioned, I started babbling and attempting to communicate with some entity that was in the house. Long story short to end it all my mother said a prayer and put the key back. Nothing happened to her but with me, with me it never went away. Since three months old I’ve constantly encountered paranormal activity. I’ve heard things, felt things, seen things, smelt things, dreamed things. Nothing I do works, it won’t go away. 18 years later, I’m currently living at my own place and I wake up with bruises a lot. I wish I understood why this is all happening. I’m worried I may have to go back to where it all started.

    • Alice,
      Maybe you should contact a paranormal group in your area and talk to them about your experiences. They may be able to help you. Have you had the bruises checked out by your doctor to rule out any medical reasons you may bruise easily. Maybe you thrash around in your sleep and hit the bed rail or other object that is leaving bruises. You also might want to keep notes on anytime you bump into objects during the day. Sometimes bruises show up the next day and we have forgotten that we bumped out arm on the counter or leg on the table. Just some thoughts to consider about the bruises.
