i grew up in a very haunted house - my parents still live there, so i get to check it out on holidays when i'm there for a visit. none of the ghosts in my childhood home are family, but there are two ghosts in another family-owned home about a block and a half away.
my parents, my mother's parents, and my great uncle and their cabinet shop are situated within about a square block of each other. my great uncle passed away in his house adjoining the woodshop in 1993. he's been sighted in the house, in the shop, and has been attributed to preventing mechanical accidents in the wood shop. his wife, who passed away in 1984, is sometimes seen in the bedroom or the mirror of the master bath.
my best friend from grade school also lived in a haunted house with an equally haunted garage. her family still lives there, and we still hear stories about the cold spot in the living room and the old man that goes up the stairs in the garage.
we'll have to swap stories, here!
thanks for the new thread!

I must admit, their old house had certain parts of it that were very vivid and scarey to me as a kid.

I grew up in a haunted house, although my parents kept saying it was the house settling. Footsteps up and down the hall, banging on doors and walls, shadows, were common.
I still have an EVP up in Encounters section that I recorded in March of this year when I went to visit. It is "We'll Never Get Out of Here" - EVP.

Now, there are some spirit-like "things" I tend to put in the "other" category. They aren't human spirits, but typically pose as them (they seem to prefer posing as children...I don't know if that's due to my being unnerved by children spirits or if it's maybe to portray innocense or what). I don't know what to call them, really, but they are the more nasty sorts. Actual spirits seem to typically follow a "code of conduct", so to speak (excepting those that are suffering emotional trauma, who tend to act out). Actual spirits seem to try to be respectful, and while they might pull benign pranks, they tend to have limits (like they tend to quit when you tell them to). These "others" seem to like to pull nasty pranks (I've...erm..been in an "intimate situation" with my hubby, for instance, only to have the ceiling burst into a sea of roaches, spreading from one corner to about halfway across the ceiling before disappearing, and I've had one particular one appear within an inch of my face, disappear, then reappear about three feet away, scaring the heck out of me since I can sense "real" spirits). They tend to play off of fears more than anything. I'm not sure what exactly they are, but they would be what I would consider a real haunting for me, since "ghosts" are a normal, daily encounter for me...if anyone knows what these "other" things are, or if you've had experiences similar, please share info! Thanks

Thank you all so much. For years and years I was told I was inviting in the devil (by churches) and that any type of "gifts" (I like to call them that) were not of God. So I've spent years trying to block. Which I have found is very unhealthy. Thank you for your help, understanding, posts, and just being here. I'm a fan of ghostvilliage and working in retail I come across others who need help so I send them this way.....

Yes, I too grew up in a haunted house, I just didn't realize at the time that it was haunted...my siblings and I passed it off as individual imagination/coincidences (because we, too, were brought up "in the church" and taught that we shouldn't "seek the dead" and that it was all "of the devil", so we were scared of it before we even encountered it). It wasn't until after we each moved out of the family home that we began comparing notes. Even had some encounters when I moved back in for a while to take care of mom before she passed. DEFINITELY had encounters after Dad (the most intense ones) and Mom passed! I've been trying to research what the land was used for before being developed and have recently learned that a large part of my old childhood neighborhood was dairy farm and pastures back in the 1930's (that would explain the apparition of a black man that came round occasionally. Usually only his hand or arm could be seen resting on a doorjamb or wall).
I had an interesting encounter on Thanksgiving Eve last year that I will write about in a separate thread.

my other friend who moved last year complained that her house was haunted and even her mother agreed. she said that her tv goes on amd off without a timer, she hears pounding in the halls when no ones there, he brother hears strange sounds in his room and done know what they r, her mom and dad claim their bed dips at night as if someone is sitting on it. they even told their radio station that their house was haunted and i think it is because i went over there and there was deffiantly something there. i could sence it.
i wish my house was haunted...yeah its weird, but it would make things more interesting ;D
