At first I tried to think of any logical thing could have been happening, like wind closing doors or roommates, but when I started to hear the noises and see shadows in the corner I was thinking maybe it could be happening again. When I was little I use to see them a lot but I put up a wall to block them out. I don't know what I should do.

Hi Mumbles,

Can you expand on "seeing shadows in the corner", do you mean from the corner of your eye or in a certain part of your house?

PS: I forgot to say, welcome to the forum :)

I will be laying in bed and the door will be closed and I see a shadow by the door and the only light I have in my room is normally my laptop facing me. Or when I'm in the kitchen around 2 I can see something in the hallway. I find my dogs barking at nothing at random times of the day also. All I know is I'm looking at it straight on, and I get the same feeling I did when I thought I saw ghosts when I was little.

I'm just going to focus on the shadows for now as everything else (while could be related) can also be explained away. I'm gonna ask you some questions (please don't be offended) because what you're experiencing sounds similar to what I do from time to time.

1) have you ever played a Ouija Board, including a home made one? Even if it was just some silly play when you were younger.
2) do you feel low or depressed right now about something in general life that's bugging you? ie: love life, work etc.
3) if not you, do you feel any of your housemates could be very depressed right now?
4) how do you feel when you see the shadows? do you feel intimidated or instinctively frightened?
5) have you seen them frequently throughout your life? can you expand on when you said you put up a wall to block them out? what did you do? who told you to do that, was it because of the same shadows etc?

Thanks :)

And most important: 6. What the hell are you doing in kitchen in 2 AM?? Just kidding, you never said is it 2 AM or 2 PM. But it would make sense to try to establish pattern.. do shadows appear only during night, or during day or in some specific times of day.. As much data you can gather and share will help understand your problem.

I have never played with a Ouija Board my sister did, I have no depression, one of my roommates may have it but then again I never know he doesn't talk to me much. As for when I see the shadow I feel terrified, Like a weight is on my chest and I cant move, I force myself to walk away, because if not I go into a panic attack. I have seen them through out life but haven't had this feeling in a long time, it was my sister and my aunt who told me to block them out(since we 3 are wiccan they were the only people who knew). I cant remember how I did it since the last time I experienced this feeling I believe I was 6 or 7, they wanted me to block them out because I was such a young age and my sisters fiance wanted to send me to a mental hospital.

The showings don't seem to have a pattern on when they show up, just when ever our guard is down. It seems to be mainly during early morning/ and just after dusk. I know I'm not the only one feeling that something is here. My boyfriend who is a I need proof to believe kinda guy says he feels something here and constantly asks if I keep moving things, and if I was in another part of the house when i wasn't.

Well being a wiccan explains a lot, especially since you seem to experience recurring visitations. Maybe you are in emotionally stressful period in your life and your guards have been knocked down for a while? You speak in plural, so there is someone else who experiences such incidents? I'm assuming you're reffering to your boyfriend. How many years passed since you had dealings of such sort ?

In nutshell, i would say you have only two options: rebuild your shield guard, or chenge religious belief so God can protect you.

I don't seem stressed, nor my boyfriend who does not believe in anything and has been feeling something here in the house. I thought that it may have been from me doing a cleansing of a lot of drama, and people in my life that may have took down the wall but it seems to be since I moved here, it has been I would say 5 years since I have experienced something unwillingly.

I cant remember how I did it since the last time I experienced this feeling I believe I was 6 or 7, they wanted me to block them out because I was such a young age and my sisters fiance wanted to send me to a mental hospital.

The reason I asked about depression is that darker spirits are attracted to negative emotions like that. Whatever it is, it doesn't sound nice but I will say if you've been seeing them on and off throughout your life, like I have, you'll never get rid of them forever. There are things you can do to oust them temporarily but I've found that sooner or later, as soon as they get a window, they'll be back.

I'm just going to ask you to do a simple exercise to see if it makes a difference and ideally, you'll have a candle to do it with. This is an exercise that has personally never failed me and I've used it a lot when asked to go to peoples homes to help them get rid of darker energies like you're describing. No reason why it shouldn't work without a candle but the light from the flame can help with an integral part of the exercise (something the spirit will attempt to block if it's smart) which is visualiation. I know it may be difficult to do if you have a house full but I'd suggest lighting the candle and take it into every room you have (including basement/attic/store cupboards etc). When you start, simply ask in your mind that God/angels/whatever you personally believe in help you to cleanse away all negative energies and entities in the house. Go from room to room, imagining a white light washing each room out and washing away black/dark energies. All you need to do is stand in the center of each room and each "see" the light coming from the candle flame or you can close your eyes and see it happen in your mind, all that matters is you have 100% faith in yourself that you're cleaning out the bad energies. Take extra matches as it's not uncommon (at least for me) for the candle flame to unexpectedly go out.

If you do have a dark spirit there, it's going to try and stop you. I'm not saying you'll find yourself in a scene of the Exorcist but the further you go on with this (depending on how sensitive you are) the more it will try to scare you off from completing what you're doing. A lot of the time, you might see unwelcome distressing images in your head, you might feel sick, you might see lights, you might see the shadow itself, you might hear voices (audible or in your mind) just persevere and don't give up and most importantly... don't let it make you feel like you can't do this. That's why I suggest a candle because I've tried without and if they can distract you with images in your mind (and disrupt your visualisation) you've lost. One time without a candle all I could visualise instead of white light was a black darkness and I just couldn't get past that.

It's quite a simple exercise but it was taught to me when I was 16 and had played a Ouija Board and I was in a world of trouble. Like I say, it won't work forever (unless you take the time to do this exercise daily/weekly/monthly) which is why if I ever do it for somebody else, I let them know what I'm doing so they can continue it themselves or use it later if need be.

People will laugh at what I've posted most likely but if you truly feel like you're experiencing this, I'm willing to believe you and help you best I can because I know how it feels to have experiences like this (and worse) and feel like there's no one to help me.

Aside from this, just try and be happy in every day life. As I say, if they can find a window back, they will, and they feed off of negative emotions.

I hope this helps you out, please keep me informed :)

I will try this, thank you for the information and I will keep you posted. Hopefully I can do this when everyone is out of the house tomorrow and I will finally get a full nights rest.

If there has been drama happening then peoples spiritual guardians are possibly going to make their presence known. They can appear in many ways & their basic message is to tell us we're not alone. They are guardians who take care of us on many parallel worlds as well. At first it's like they are strangers & you want them to leave; & then you find they have been with you since birth & make it possible for your soul to experience human life.

Pray read the Bible and get advice from a priest in how to cleanse your home of anything that could be malevolent. Non malevolent I could care less take a seat and check out the boon tube for all I care but the rest go to h#@@ LITERALLY

What?  Who are you telling to go to hell?  And this is assuming the OP is of the same faith as you.
