NFT: Ghosts and Children

Big Al : 8/12/2019 3:03 pm
Probably the weirdest thing i have asked advice about in 20 years here. Have some houseguests here including a child almost 3 and my wiveís sister.

First I donít believe in ghosts and think it is nonsense. Yesterday the child said something about seeing a ghost in the hallway. My wife and I assured her there were no ghosts in the house and the child was fine. She even came in a little later with her sheet on her saying she was a ghost. She was laughing.

In the middle of the night I hear a tape in the hallway playing on a cellphone.and catch something about driving out demons. I shut it off. The next morning I tell my sister in law she canít play stuff like that in
my hallway especially without my permission.

I just get back from dropping my wife off somewhere and guess what is playing on the hallway again.

I tell her she canít do that and she is defiant and hurls a bunch of Jesus Christís at me like I am a vampire.

Any thoughts on what I should do (and about kids and ghosts)?

Sounds the like cat in the Sopranos that stared at Chris' picture after he died. Did you know they steal the breath from babies?

Al, I'm a therapist - lots of experience - but just my two cents.

Remove her head from her body. Bury the head and the body in two different places. Then ask why your sister in law has to visit and that it should only be done outside of your house going forward - that's if the head separation doesn't work. But I'm Jewish, and I know gentiles have different methodology.

Moved into our house in 1998.  
Beezer : 8/12/2019 3:52 pm : link
Strange things started happening that first night, and while it goes in waves (couple months on, as much as a year or two off), there is absolutely activity in our home. So many stories that confirm it for me. And when they were little (they're 21 and 18 now) both our kids saw a little girl in the house - completely independently of each other. Ots more stories but I'll be anti-Beez today and leave it at that.

If they're just visiting, no biggie. And if you're not sensitive to it, then no biggie. But as someone who has experienced 2 and a half decades of it, I believe, without question.

Jesus will no doubt forgive you; but your wife might not regarding poking fun at her sister, or even her sister's mishugas. If your wife has spent a lifetime ignoring your sil's cuckoo, she might not want that stone overturned, either.

If your sil looks like madgiantscow's gypsy, send your wife on a two week vacay and get to the bottom of the issue with the sil...

We all have "demons" in our family if we peel away enough layers or widen the circle to 3rd cousins thrice removed, I imagine.

None of that ramble was intended to help at all. But you weren't really asking for help, were you? Or you'd let the tapes run and be glad for them.
You have to steer into this I think  
NoGainDayne : 8/13/2019 3:00 am : link
say that the ghost appeared to you in the night and demanded the tape stop or it would posses any children in the house.

Be sure to also add that you know it's crazy you didn't believe in ghosts before this but the encounter was so vivid you have no choice but to believe now.

Not really.

A priest came in within maybe 3-4 months. Went through the house. Seemed to quiet things but only for a relatively short time. Then more stuff. We have never felt threatened or unsafe. Just ... tons of weird things that when I tell the stories, would seem not believable if we hadnít been in the middle of it.

Not sure if it was coincidence, but you know that thing where they say if you renovate and start to tear up old historical things, you get a flare up of activity? Huge case of that roughly a year and a half ago when we did the upstairs bathroom remodel. It was definitely noticed by ďsomeone.Ē But we had a chat (lol) and it died down somewhat quickly.

I wonder

BamaBlue : 8/13/2019 7:46 am : link
within a couple of months of my Mother's death, I was on the phone with my Dad. Throughout my life, my Dad and I have had a contentious relationship and my Mother always mediated. As I'm arguing with my Dad, the light switch in my study flipped off. At first, I thought the light blew out, but when I went to the light switch, it gave me a chill, because it had flipped off. I flipped the light on and reconciled that I must have flipped the switch half-way on, and continued the heated discussion with my Dad. within a minute, the light flipped off again at the switch. This time, I got a big chill down my neck and got out of the room.

Never happened before or since.

She had a hard three years after quitting her job and moving to Vancouver from the Bahamas to take care of their mother who died earlier this year at the age of 96. She came here in late May to attend a friendís son graduation and has since been using this as a base to take a European vacation with my wife and another sister and taking various trips to visit friends and relatives on the East coast (and also job hunting through the internet). My wife has asked me to give her time to get her life back together but no set time to leave was ever set.

Last night at bedtime I had a talk with my wife and we both agreed that she will have to leave very soon. Some hard talks are coming up today. I would guess she will either go back to live in her motherís house ( which I think she will inherit) or find a friend or relative to ďtemporarilyĒ move in with. I donít think she has any further ties back in the Bahamas.

I have tried to be patient with her because she has made personal sacrifices on behalf of the family but we have had run ins before because she tends to try to throw herself into other peopleís business. A condition of her coming here was agreed by to my wife that she be stopped immediately if she did this here.

...this past Friday. Garden hose snaked across below where we were sitting.

I said to my wife "Are you going to use the hose again today?"

SPLOOOSH!!!

At that instant, the hose exploded - a section of it right next to our table burst like a balloon, showering us all with water.

I ran and shut off the valve, came back to a table of wide eyed sons, one of whom loudly asked "DAD, ARE YOU A WIZARD??"

The hose was 2 50 footers joined - 100 feet of hose and it failed exactly where we were seated, right as I asked about it.

Kinda neat.

I have friends who've had the same type of experiences at their house as Beez has had at his. So I don't dismiss it out of hand. Some people seem to encounter it.

That's not to suggest that Beez is sane.

I understand what you are saying and I may have just shrugged if she asked permission.

However waking up in the middle of the night hearing what sounds like the voice of God from a 1940s movie commanding demons to leave my home sort of threw me for s loop. I always have had a problem with religious fanaticism (including some rough debates here in the early days of BBI with rieligious nut Rocky/Rhett/Spock).

I said to myself as a house guest at someoneís house, would I ever even consider doing something like that without permission? As someone said earlier here Ēmy home, my rules. Then defying the homeowner when told not to do it.

Saying that may I come over to your house and pray to Satan in your living room. Wait why do I need to even get your OK. I will just do it.

I rebuke you in the name of the Great Turtle who created the Universe.

Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma...  
x meadowlander : 8/14/2019 9:36 am : link
...3 generations of crazy Sicilians under one Brooklyn roof. Great Grandma had a mild stroke at some point, walked with a cane, made a distinctive sound when she walked, thump of cane, foot drag.

She passed away in the early 60's.

Months later, my Grandmother was deathly ill, caught pneumonia recovering from surgery, was in bed in bad shape.

One night, my mom awakens to the sound of the cane and foot dragging through the hall. Starts screaming "Don't take her!!." Too petrified to move, she doesn't get out of bed until a half hour or so later - Grandma is awake, and tells of being visited by her mother who recounts having walked in darkness for a long time and tells my Grandmother she will survive her illness.

FWIW, my Mom was/is hyper-religious, my Grandmother the complete opposite, HATED the Catholic Church (somewhere way back, a priest meddled where he shouldn't have) - so while this sort of voodoo mumbo-jumbo coming from my Mom doesn't surprise me, from my Grandmother is another story - and both sharing the same bizarre story, entertaining at the least, horrifying at most.

I dunno what happens to us when we go, but I prefer not to wander this globe in another dimension.

Al, I'm a therapist - lots of experience - but just my two cents.

Remove her head from her body. Bury the head and the body in two different places. Then ask why your sister in law has to visit and that it should only be done outside of your house going forward - that's if the head separation doesn't work. But I'm Jewish, and I know gentiles have different methodology.


Make sure to bury the parts at a crossroad. Otherwise she'll haunt you forever.
