Ghost in house

Okay so I've been feeling like there's something in my house lately, get the feeling I'm being watched and mentioned this to a friend who goes ghost hunting, who told me to try and communicate with it. I've got this week off work and home alone, so thought it was the best time to try as don't want to scare anyone.

I called out to it and a few moments later the delivery driver knocks on the door, pure coincidence or is this thing using real events to respond to me? Oh also I woke up this morning and tap was running?? I'm a light sleeper so would know if it was dh or dd in middle of the night. I feel quite uncomfortable sat here blush am I being paranoid?

Yes you are being irrational. Ghosts don't exist.

LittleLionMansMummy Fri 11-Mar-16 14:35:20

You know ghosts aren't real, right?

It's the burglars hiding in the wardrobe you need to worry about.

You sound like you want there to be a ghost in your house because your reasons for believing there is sound insubstantial. Put it this way, if there was a ghost, it is not really trying to bother you is it? Do you want a new ghostly friend?

So let it be. Focus on life.

Ghosts don't exist - but they love sheep

Ghosts absolutely are real, I've been contacted by one before and anyone saying otherwise should be more accepting of others who have had an experience!

Even if ghosts exist I doubt they could control what time a delivery driver comes.

As for the ghost, grab your phone, hit voice record, talk to it.
Replay the recording, see if you get anything.

OP....did the responses to your earlier thread about 'being at one with the moon' not confirm to you that MN is probably not the best place to seek advice about woo?

zodiackelly Fri 11-Mar-16 14:39:34

I might try that Seeyounearertime! Have you done this before or had any success with it?

You maybe could do with seeing a doctor if you actually believe that there's a ghost in your house that can control delivery drivers.

^ but I am the woman who, when on holiday, lack of sleep (small DC) caused her to slam the bedroom door shut, which had flung itself open (apparently by itself), swearing bad temperedly. Nothing was messing with me! grin

zodiackelly Fri 11-Mar-16 14:42:11

Yes maybe stumbly grin but there are a few open minded ones here so worth a try right?

Seeyounearertime Fri 11-Mar-16 14:43:57

No, I've never done it.
I don't know if I believe or not, I do think that if they do exist, they're not likely to be sentient.

I hope they're not tbh, what a lonely hell to be forced to stand in the shadows and watch everyone without being able to communicate.

I'm not so open minded my brain fell out.

There is not a shred of scientific evidence that ghosts exist. All we have is people randomly stating they've seen one and expecting us to believe them. I'm not saying that people who claim to have seen them are lying, just that there is probably some scientific explanation. For example, I swore blind I saw a ghost when I was very little. I remember it very clearly. I was also feeling ill and woke up (or did I?) during the night when it happened. I've since put it down to having a dream but feeling awake/ hallucinations from ill health.

What do you think this ghost is trying to tell you? 'I can pretend to be a delivery driver'? 'I can turn on taps'? - seem like rather pointless thing to come back to the world of the living for.

More likely is that you had a delivery and your tap leaks.
Your 'evidence' of a ghost is flimsy to non-existent.

Ah I see you have a thread about the moon, and I think I saw one earlier about psychics.

It's fine if you believe in this rubbish - no one can stop you, but don't get riled up when folk say it is bollocks because non-woo people are allowed their opinions too.

Ghosts aren't real, please don't scare your child by rabbiting on about supernatural rubbish - keep your nonsense to yourself.

Swear I just heard the cat flap go and don't even have a cat confused am shitting myself to be honest, may have to get in touch with local priest just for peace of mind even if it is just me I think, better to be safe right?

I bet you're a Scorpio.

Safe? What do you think a ghost would do?

Look buildings creak. Things, like birds, animals, other people may watch you (the magpies noticed me watching them today and flew off). We share the space we live in.

If there are spirits around they are used to people being there. Focus on something else, you will soon find you forget about ghosts.

By all means talk to a priest, they will be able to talk to you about spirits (although try a Catholic one as many of Protestant ilk do not believe in ghosts of dead people) and pray for you.

Was the delivery driver a ghost?

Did you start talking about the moon?

Ring the priest. Get him round now if you can. It sounds like an emergency.

Let us know how that goes.

Why do you have a cat flap and no cat? Is it a ghost flap? Is that how they getting in?

zodiackelly Fri 11-Mar-16 14:59:39

Lol First, I had a cat last year, she died. Dd likes to use it now if she fancies from fresh air. Nothing happened since last post, I'll see over the next few days if anything suspicious happens and will talk to dh about it.
