Lets assume that we're talking about an intelligent spirit that is aware of it's surroudings...

Has anyone ever heard of this or experienced it?


My ex girlfriend and I visited an old house my uncle owns...my father and him grew up in it as children.
It has been abandoned for at least 40yrs.
We had no intentions of looking for ghosts or having experiences...we were just having fun and i've always been fascinated with old buildings.

While we were there it was fun..interesting..a bit thrilling..but nothing strange or out of the ordinary.
Until we got home...

I was laying on the couch getting ready to go to sleep and she went to use the bathroom.
Shortly after she leaves I hear her scream.
So i jump to my feet and run in to see whats up.

She tells me that out of the corner of her eye she'd seen a shadowy figure run into my closet.
So I go over and put my hand/upper body in the closet..and tell her ..'nothings in here' (of course i thought she was telling stories,the girls loved drama)
Much to my surprise the inside of the closet feels very very cold.
Quite unusual for late July weather.
Now as I'm telling her this i turn my head to look at her telling her what i feel.
When all of a sudden the end of her nightgown lifts up...not as if a breeze is blowing it...but as if it were being pulled out and up.The window was open...but was far away and it was not windy or breezy at all that night.Quite warm and calm.
It goes out and up like five or six inches..then very slowly gets let back down.
Then she stares at me...sorta freaked out.
Thats when i shut out the lights and decided to go to bed.
And thats the moment i wanted to start looking into this stuff.
Nothing again ever happened in my house like that.
Perhaps these were all explainable things,or perhaps not.

Other's may have a different take, but yes they definitely can follow you, at least in my experience. I'm not an expert but person opinion/experience says yes.

Yes, it happened to me once, too. Something very negative followed Jack and I home from a tuberculosis sanitarium, once. I told it to leave after dealing with it for a while and it left.

Most notible for me was when 3 followed us home from Gettysburg. One particularly got my attention. I kept seeing a figure on the porch, moving back and forth as if on guard duty. After a couple weeks it stopped. I was reesting on the couch on day after work and I heard a voice in my ear. After that I never saw the "Guard" again. It's like he was saying goodbye.

There is a particular ghost that follows me from my house to anywhere that I spend the night, like a friend's house and when I was a counselor at a camp. I am not sure he actually came originally from my house, but he pretty much goes everywhere I do.

I have also visited places and have had ghosts follow me home, but the activity is only a few days long.

I believe so too, if the spirit felt a connection to you (and since it was a family home, then that is very possible) or if maybe you have a high energy level that attracts the ghost.

One thing to try and pay attention to is if the entity around you now feels bad or good. I had an entity in my room that felt like it hated me but no one else in the house. I had had a dream where ghosts were wandering the house. My friend thinks that I accidentally summoned the spirit and trapped it and that is why it hated me. So every night I would chant "you are free to go, you do not belong here" and eventually the spirit was gone.

If it is bothering you, you might want to try that to detach it from you.

Ghosts can and will follow people back to their homes. In most cases I think it's the matter of the ghost being curious about seeing a new face for a little while ;)

I am wondering.. has anyone used a prayer such as St Micheals and still had one follow them home.. I do not practice this but if it has indeed proven to work i would consider trying it.. I would use it if we where investigating a place with a known negative entity in it just to be on the safe side.

I believe prayers of any sort seem to help keep spirits from following one home. Kindly, yet meaningfully, telling them they are to stay and not follow you can help, as well.

I used to leave "gifts" when I would visit a place such as a cemetery to not only thank but to hopefully appease the spirits. That seemed to work, as well.

Viv

I need to add: it is very important if one is sick with either a physical or mental ailment that they do not go on ghost hunts or to places that are supposedly haunted. Negative spirits can easily latch onto a person who is ailing in some way moreso than someone who is pretty much healthy all the way around. I say this because it's happened to me and many, many people adhere to this rule.

Yes, spirits can and do follow the living. I had a ongoing experience when I work for a funeral home. Mine would leave with me when I closed down the funeral home for the evening and follow me home. And then "hitch" a ride back with me the next morning. Funny thing is it never followed me home on weekends, I think because I was the office worker and had very little to do with the funerals the spirit was afraid they would miss the weekend funerals (my belief is that it was one of the first owners of the funeral home that past away, and they needed to make sure everything ran correctly). She kind of became one of the family, I really would have loved to know her when she was alive, she would have been a very likeable person.

This spirit was the first to really bring out my interest in the paranormal. Hard to dismiss a spirit that likes to talk, and move things about, so my interst was born and I have been searching for answers since.

Yes they most definitely can. We have a spirit that we have been interacting with for almost a year now and he does follow our team leader home and not only that, he comes on all our investigations now which we are not impressed about. We cant really stop him. We tell him not to come and he says no.
This spirit follows us to the toilet. In fact, the last time I was at the spirits ' haunt' and had to go to the toilet I said to him before I went in that he had to stay outside. We knew he was there because he lets us know & our team leader was with us and where she goes, he goes lol!

Its got to a stage where you cant whisper anything about him to another member because he listens and answers. We are sleeping over in this place this weekend. I know for sure that I wont be getting changed in there lol! He knows everything we do and he sees us clearly and hears us. He even touches us.

House, I would be very interested to hear about your interaction with this spirit. Did this spirit every tap to you or did you hear her voice ? How did you discover she was female and what sort of things did she move?
