IS IT HAPPENING IN YOUR HOUSE?
Paranormal activity might be more common than you think. And the most important thing is that most times, it’s nothing to worry about. Here is how to spot the signs of paranormal activity in your home and what to do about it if it happens, whether its welcome or not!
QUICK MOVING SPIRITS
Spirits are often very quick movers. But this will depend on their individual energy. Like people on the earth plane, spirits come in different sizes, density and energy forms. This explains why some spirits we cannot see but we can hear. Others we can feel or sense but cannot hear or see. Others again are able to move objects seemingly invisibly. With Paranormal Activity, we may perceive some spirits as dark or black shadows, others as patches of light vibrating energy. And of course, some spirits can just look see through people. Often the fact that we see them as being grey, black or white beings is just because of the light and their vibration.
And no, a black or dark-coloured spirit is not necessarily a dark force. It just means they have a relatively low vibration compared to many others.
SOUND AND LIGHT
It is true that often people living in apartments seem to be less affected than people living in houses. Fact? No. Its simply that often people living in apartments are often subject to more noise and “traffic” in their building than people who live in individual houses. When there is a lot of noise or light, we are more likely not to notice paranormal activity, or write it off as “a weird thing” that we then forget all about.
Lighting makes a difference also. This is why people often tend to see more spirits at night, although this can happen in broad daylight as well. If you want to see spirit, turning down the lights will help! And if you don’t, then turning up the lights will increase your chances of not seeing any, ever!
Night time also makes us more conscious of spirit activity for several reasons. Firstly we are often more tired and/or relaxed and therefore more in a state to be able to experience paranormal activity. Secondly night times have their own energy. Nights tend to be quieter.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY – SPIRITS ARE EVERYWHERE!
Due to the different situations and different kinds of spirits mentioned above, you might think that seeing a spirit should be possible. And it is. Spirits are everywhere! But it also depends on your own beliefs, senses and vibrations. This is why some people are able to see spirits and some aren’t. Others can smell them or sense them, but cant see them.
People who see spirits and are not used to it, or who have an unexpected spirit encounter, can be freaked out. This is because as humans, we tend to rely on our sense of sight very heavily. People who smell a spirit or only sense them can often write this experience off as being something inexplicable. Actually in this case, you are using your own abilities of clairolfactance, the psychic sense of smell.
BE AWARE BUT NOT SCARED OF PARANORMAL ACTIVITY
Our bodies usually react automatically when something unexpected happens. We can get chills running down our spines, feel jumpy, even panicky. But in fact, if you think you may be experiencing some kind of paranormal activity, it is important to try to stay calm and in control. This is actually the opposite of what most people do!
But, by being in control, you are far better placed to bring the situation under control and understand what is happening. So, don’t just sit there waiting for further things to happen. With your back to a wall or facing into a room, do some deep breathing to calm down, or if necessary, go out for a walk to clear your head. Now that you have read this article you WILL be more in control!
COMMON SIGNS OF PARANORMAL ACTIVITY
There are numerous signs of Paranormal activity that one can experience. Here are some of the most common:
Your car key, watch or other object goes missing. You search for it and then find it exactly where you left it. This might be minutes, hours, weeks or months later!
Something very odd appears mysteriously, such as playing card, feather or other item.
You feel someone or something walk into the room or behind you, but when you turn round, apparently no one is there.
You hear walking noises on your floor or stairway
Cut flowers in a vase die off quickly or plants die mysteriously.
You smell an unusual smell such as lavender, cigarette smoke, even garlic!
You see a black or grey shadow move across a wall or ceiling.
Someone moves the sheets, or tries to climb into bed with you
You thought you heard someone say something, cough, or music plays in the distance
You see the image of someone in a mirror, television screen or glass doorway.
Or, you actually see a spirit for a moment.
IS IT A GHOST OR A SPIRIT
The first sign of a ghost is that often they are going about their business in a “normal “ day-to-day manner. Ghosts are often bound to one location and are often unaware of other people from our earthly plane.
A spirit however may just come and pay you a visit, as is the case with many of our past loved ones. Or they may travel in for a reason. This could be because they were drawn to an energy about you or your home, because of a portal, or to have a specific experience.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: WHAT TO DO
Let’s split this into welcome spirits and unwelcome spirits. A welcome spirit might be the spirit of one of your loved ones that you are delighted to have a visit from. It could be a beloved pet. Or it can be you are interested in spirit and experiencing any kind of spirit activity. An unwelcome spirit is one who you just don’t want around. This may be because you simply don’t want any spirits cramping your style, or be because you find the spirit troublesome. Here are some steps to follow that you can pick and choose from, according to your situation
Often if you take a photo with a camera, a camera can reveal what you cannot see. A good digital camera is best, but many mobile phones can also give you some good information from photos you take. If you have a computer, download the photos onto a bigger screen so you can zoom into the photo. Firstly, look for orbs, round balls of light. Is there anything underneath an orb you see? Secondly look for shapes of figures. These are likely to be transparent, but yet still have a form. Look for patches of grey, white or black. The forms can be not at all what you expect and could be sitting, above ground level.
Remember though on photos many spirits can look quite scary and are not like that at all. This is because they have an energy which can’t always be fully seen by the camera, so many spirits come out looking weird! But if you can capture your spirit on photo at least you know they exist, although you may not know or even recognise who they are from simply a photo.
ASK WHAT YOU WANT
Remember that being in control is helpful. And after all, the spirit is in your home. You’ve heard the expression “You don’t get unless you ask.” This is easily done by making statements, telling the spirit how you feel and then asking for what you require. Be clear. Some examples
“I am not happy about you being here. This is my house, please leave”
“I am happy to have you visit, but I don’t know who you are. Please give me a sign that you are present and of who you are.”
BOLSTER YOURSELF UP
If you are nervous about the spirit, you may wish to use some protection. Black tourmaline is a grounding stone that protects from negative energies. Having some black tourmaline on standby can be very helpful. You can wear it on your person, pop it under your pillow and more. You can also ask for protection from your loved ones in spirit, from the Angels, or whoever you feel could help you.
Some spirits also dislike smells. These include burning sage, some kinds of pungent incense, or others used in religious rituals such as frankincense. Other spirits hate noise. So it might be worth cranking up your Rammstein….
USE YOUR SENSES
Remember to use all your senses if you are happy with the spirit activity and want more signs. Note such small things as something being tipped over or falling off a wall, something electrical turning on and listen out for sounds.
CALLING FOR HELP
And if all else fails, these days we can all call for help. A genuine psychic medium who deals with spirit activity should be able to help you. This does not always have to be in person. As with reiki healers who work at a distance, many psychic mediums are also able to communicate with spirit or clear energies at a distance. They can also give you advice on what to do if needed.
