The Old House Is Haunted

The house is probably haunted. Actually, the area where it is located is a ghost town of sorts. I've seen ghosts in the other house I lived in there.

So...I've been doing some research on ghosts. The following is from the "shadowlands" website:

Types of Ghosts
by Dave Juliano

The general Hollywood concept of a ghost is not accurate but it's what many think about when they speak of ghosts. There are basically three types of hauntings.

The first type of haunting is exactly like a video playback of a historic or tragic event.

This is called a residual haunting. The event unfolds in front of you and there is no interaction between you and the ghosts. They seem to not notice you and go through the motions of the event that occurred in the past.

This event has been imprinted on the area or building and is replayed back later when conditions are right. The ghosts that you see in this type are not earthbound spirits, they are just visual play backs. Since everything is made up of energy, the theory is that some of the energy from an event can be recorded by certain materials and played back when the atmosphere triggers it. Remember that video and audio tape is just oxidized (rust) film that enables the images and sounds to "stick" to it.

This type may be frightening when you see it, but you are in no danger so enjoy the experience.

The second type of haunting is an interactive spirit that manifests in many ways. You may see a full bodied or partial bodied apparition. More frequently than that, you may here voices, music, footsteps, etc. You may also smell odors which sources cannot be found (i.e. pipe tobacco when no one smokes). You may also see orbs, mists and other light effects. You may feel touches, cold spots, and other light physical contact. This ghost is the spirit of a deceased human being. They may be stuck here (earthbound) for reasons such as tragic sudden death, fear of moving on, guilt or unfinished business. They also could be here visiting loved ones or to warn or pass along a message.

These human spirits are the same as they were in life, so they may be good or bad, but not really evil. Think of all the people you know, probably a bit of good and bad, some worse than others. This type can cause some scary situations but you must think about the situation they are in, you don't see them but they see you. They will try to get your attention any way they can. Many times this is the terrifying event people will write to me about like the lights going on and off, items moving, noises, etc. For the most part these are just attention getters and nothing more.

There are a few more mischievous human spirits that will do these things to bother you and scare you on purpose. They may just be a prankster or maybe they want you to leave the old home or not to change something in the home. They have all the same motivations you and I would have. These human spirits account for a majority of the hauntings we encounter and are relatively harmless. Yes, there are extreme cases and sometimes they can cause dangerous situations, but this is not the norm and is rare.

The third type of ghost you may encounter is not a rare one, but is rare that they interact with the living. They are non human spirits, commonly known as demons and devils. They are mentioned in the bible numerous places in both the old and new testaments. People like Ed and Lorraine Warren have been dealing with this type of spirit for years. This type is dangerous and can cause you harm. I believe that if there is good, there must be a counter balance, evil.

These non human spirits often disguise themselves and friendly and helpful human spirits. They often appear in cases dealing with Ouija boards, black magic and satanic worship. This is why I recommend not trying to contact spirits and doing ghost hunts without some understanding of what's out there. It's also why I recommend you go with or learn from experienced people before hand. That way you can ghost hunt with relative safety from these entities.

Very interesting...

I am totally fascinated by the supernatural...I often wonder how many spirits come and go as they please. I hope you post more about this, have you seen or had any true experiences? Is it your house that you think is haunted? Or just your area in general?

The area was a Spanish colonial presidio 1730-1790. Then it was a mining town in the 1850-=1890 period. Before that there is a 1000+ year old Indian ruin on the site. One of the houses on the site, I stayed in for a while, and saw a couple dancing one night. Guy was in a military uniform and the lady in a flowing white dress--1880's style. Nice ghosts...just reliving a happy time.

Everyone around (all Hispanic) are certain her spirit is there.

Very much into spiritual, magic, paranormal stuff. Seen a lot of miracles...was actually saved by an angel in what should have been a fatal car crash. The Discovery Channel caught the event (they were filming in the Emergency Room at the time).

ghosts stories, real or otherwise, just creep me out. I used to play with ouiji boards (my best friend had one). i get so nervous around them it's crazy. i'd get so full of nervous energy, i'd be completely incapable of sitting still, high pitched laughing that i've never done before or since, and ultimately bouncing off the wall. my best friend and mom both got mad at me for not being able to sit still. mom's best friend said it's probably better that i didn't, cuz HAD we managed to contact a spirit, i'm a very dangerous person to have there. it's supposedly a sign that i'm more easily susceptible to spiritual take-over or something. the last time my best friend and i (at least me for sure) touched a ouiji board... we did something reaaaaally stupid. i was so PO'd... cuz ALL my friends had experiences with the board and talked about it but not me. So i had my friend bring the ouiji board to the middle of the cemetary. We were there maybe 15 minutes tops... and what had started a blue, cloudless, gorgeous day... suddenly there was a solid line of black clouds rolling in, and a heavy wind. Scared us so bad, she grabbed the board and ran home, and i think never touched it again.

as for haunting... thankfully i do'nt see ghosts. cuz those sensitive so such things... have oh-so-wonderfully informed me that 2 of the last 4 places i've lived have had spirits. And for some reason I tend to get the rooms they're centered in. I've always been assured they're not harmful spirits... more they're just "there". but still....

I have, however, seen djinn. Everyone thinks i'm full of it, but i insist it's true. I was camping on the coast once... with a few hundred other SCAdians. This particular area was very flat... and there was a crazy wind came up. Flattened literally EVERY tent. Those dumb enough to set it up again got flattened more than once. On the way home after the event... I looked up in the sky, and saw 3 cloud formations... that looks distinctly like 3 grotesque bodies... mouths wide open, blowing. They were "distinct" down to eyes, nose, wide open mouths, looks of amusement on their faces. So maybe it was just an overactive imagination on my part... but nobody will ever convince me otherwise.

As for angels... i do believe. I had a guardian angel once cover me with a golden blanket, thus wiping away all cares and drowning me in sleep. I actually saw a flash of gold when it happened. And one time i slipped on a sheet of pure ice, and suddenly called out for help on my way down... and felt my arm grabbed and suddenly i was upright and standing solidly again. My shoulder was a bit jarred, but i did NOT break my arm by impacting with the ground. And i've also had the odd person show up at the most opportune time to keep me from being killed on occassion.

As for normal ghosts... i have a friend who died a couple months ago. Her goal (one which she talked of for YEARS) is that after she died... she's going back to her house to haunt it. And even before she died, her new owners reported incidents of pipe smoke (nobody smoked in the house since Eva's dad was alive... and Eva was nearly 100 when she died). And after they painted their house and went to bed... they woke up the next day to find handprints all over the walls. I'm just curious what new stories they've got now Though Eva would be an interesting ghost... She is russian, and had a stubborn volatile temper.

Interesting! I never went into the ouiji board thing... like why summon them up..think it just pisses them off.
Had a lot of encounters with spirits...just sensitive to them...
And definitely seen angels. Was actually saved by one in a near fatal car crash. Never seen a djinn. Reminds me of a joke, though...
an Irishman finds a magic lantern on the beach and rubs it. The genie pops out, and says "for you, only one wish". The Irishman thinks a bit how to combine everything he wants into one wish. Finally he says "I want to be so rich I can lie on the grass and look at the sky for the rest of my life." The Genie says "'re a pile of shit."

so if you won a single wish from a djinni... what would YOU wish for? (besides unlimited wishes, of course).
