For a while now I've been doing EVP's in my apartment. I am fearless when it comes to the paranormal because my faith in the Lord is unshakable. With my faith firmly in place I went on to experiment with video and the usage of manually scanned radios and more recently an SB7 scanning receiver at home. Interesting things started to happen. My wife and I were sitting near each other and both of us clearly heard a LOUD male voice coming from the space between us. The other night I went to the bathroom to do my business. I passed our bedroom on the way to the bathroom, the lights were off. While in the bathroom I noticed the bedroom lights come on. I assumed nothing of it, until I entered the living room and saw my wife sitting in her recliner. Hmmm, I asked her if she was in the bedroom and she said she hadn't left her chair for 1/2 hour or so. I returned to the bedroom to investigate the operation of the light switch, assuming I may have attempted to turn on the bedroom lights, leaving the switch halfway between on and off, and the switch flipped on from the halfway position. No way. The switch will not balance between on and off. Either it's on or it's off. I removed the switch and examined it and checked its operation with an ohm meter. The switch is fine. Hmmm...

Like I said, my belief in God is unshakable and I'm not fearful, but I would have been happier if my activities resulted in a few EVP's and little else. All of a sudden this stuff has become very real.

I'm hoping that if we confine our paranormal activities at home to watching paranormal TV shows our visitors will get bored and move on. Time will tell.

Cheers

I have to agree on your point there. In my experience, paranormal activity increases greatly when you give them attention. Even if it's something that seems like nothing major, like an EVP session.

Take my grandmother's house for example. That place will remain inactive for months, sometimes the better part of a year, with not so much as a creeky floorboard. But then out of nowhere I'll decide on doing an EVP session, or even simply acknowledging their presence, and suddenly the activity explodes.

It's like they lie dormant. Waiting for somebody, anybody to awknowledge them. And once they get it, they want more, and thus the activity increases.

i think you are very brave to be inviting them in your home. i can see going on a hunt, but not at home. we had a spirit in the other house we lived in and i thought to turn on the VAR let her run but thought better of it as i really didn't want to hear anything in my home. maybe it's time to plead the blood?

When you look and find they don't always want to leave. Things may get worse if they want attention.
Right this way to my haunted space.

I agree. In the home that I lived in that had paranormal activity the more we gave it attention the more activity we had. I'd command your presence to leave. We should have done this early in the activity.

I agree with the rest in this thread, that actually doing EVP's, Qujia boards, and even outright speaking about ghosts/spirits invite them. My father being a religious man, would scold me if I had my friends over, and we would tell ghost stories, or just talk about weird stuff. He would say: "Sara you shouldn't entertain spirits like that, I had some creepy stuff happen when I was trying to go to sleep." I guess things that sounded like coins being tossed across the headboard of his bed, bags shuffling in his closet, and stuff like that would happen when I did those things.

Sometimes entities are already in the home, or enter whether you invite them or not. A ouija board is just a piece of cardboard. Not all entities are evil either. Sometimes it's just someone who is lost or, as you say, bored. It may be one of your relatives who has passed on. Turning on and off light switches does not sound evil or bad.

It is your home and you should set out the intention as such and set the ground rules politely and firmly. You can ask for your guardian spirits and angels to protect you and your home.

I have had the opposite results in my house. We have had activity since we moved into the house in 1998, and we are the original buyers of the house and even watched it being built. From the first time we heard definite footsteps on the second floor walk from room to room through a wall a few months after moving in to the last time something breathed in my ear earlier this year, all of our activity has been harmless, even with the invitation to stay or make themselves be known or running an EVP session. The experiences are sporadic, though; just several times a year, but in small bursts of experiences. I guess it just depends on who is haunting your house. My wife even felt a guiding hand on her back as she started to descend the stairs, and I witnessed her reaction as she felt it.
Of course it could be the result of spirit attachment due to all of the antiques we have. We just picked up an antique secretary from my wife's grandparents' house (they are both deceased), so who knows what that will bring.

I thought the first cardinal rule of investigations is never investigate your own home.......

Antiques can affect a house, as can location (for example if the building is on a former cemetary), or building materials reused from a previous structure. You can bring them home with you, or someone can bring them in. I think there is a lot that goes on in other dimensions in our space that we can't sense or see. Science can only 'discover' so much since it's based on our limited understanding of dimensions, energy and other factors.

Knowledge is power, so reading other peoples' experiences, like we do here at GV and reading books on a variety of paranormal and esoteric subjects can give us insights and maybe help us be less fearful. There are plenty of webcast and podcast shows that discuss all sorts of issues of the paranormal and even allow you to call in with questions.

In the end, go on your 'gut' feelings and use common sense. If there are 'not nice' entities on 'the other side', well there are also 'nice' enities too, just like in real life. There are 'benign' entities who are just minding their own business.

logan, I don't listen to cardinals or abide by their rules; I doos as I please.
carlotta, to me the antique attachment theory seems more likely than the other possibilities, though from time to time I will bring in vintage architectural salvage. I know our other neighbors don't have the activity we do (some have minor and rare-occasion events, but nothing like we do), so that can sort of back up that theory. Who knows. And my wife is a physics/chemistry teacher, so we talk from time to time about other or alternate dimensions in their relation to our perception of paranormal happenings (she does most of the talking; I just sit there with raised ears and tilting my head like a confused dog). In the end, the way I consider the experienses of others as well as my own is with common sense; if I can't explain it or it is not an obvious experience (solid apparition, something floating in mid-air, etc.), then it is unexplained and I don't tag it with some sort of mystical, hocus-pocus explanation. And that wears on my sensibilities when others do.
