Do we live in a haunted house?

My 9 y/o dd is scared of her bedroom...I do not know what to do, she says she hears a tapping noise and breathing in there. She would rather sleep on the floor on our room.

Another thing mil is here and is sleeping in the room next to dd, I asked dd if she was hearing grandma and she said no, then mil says you know I was startled awake because I felt "someone" get into bed with me. She said this out of ear shot of dd. Thankfully!

Our house is only a couple years old. What could be happening?

  • IDK, but have the house cleaned, as some others were saying. I would let her sleep in your room, even if it's nothing...maybe she is just needed extra security right now.

  • Well,before your house was there,SOMETHING else was.
    In your case it could be spirits,or poltergeist activity due to your daughter's upcoming puberty. Her extra energy can cause the goings on. Research poltergeists,you'll see to what I'm referring.

  • several things. either the land is haunted not the house. or the spirit is attached to somone...
    ask it to go away tell it its scaring the kids and visitors and you dont apreciate it..
    i know my house is haunted and when im trying to do my thing i just tell it to go play nor go away...its a child so i talk nicly...
    talk calmly and try to do some reasearch on your land..

  • Entities can follow a person, or haunt a person, so it's very possible. I do believe in these things due to personal experiences I can't deny. If you ever need to talk let me know. Good luck.

  • was the house build over an old one? has anyone recently passed away in your family? It can be hard to face it, but tell your dd to tell it "go away, go to the light". buy some sage sticks, buy some lavendar candles (sage and lavendar are cleansing and rid of bad energy) and cleanse the entire house. If you feel up to it, chant someting that makes you feel safer wethert it be a prayer or something like "we are here now, this is our home, please go to the light"

  • u have to let who ever know this is your place now and your thankful for it and will take care of it but they need to move on and be happy. also agree with the sage and lavender..i havent done that yet only cause after i had my talk w/ them its been quiet..lil things here and there but its nothing. and seeing the husband comited suiside i will not let anyone say a bad thing reg it. my dh is not for suicided and has feelings about it so i make him keep it to himself dont want to anger anyone. good luck mama.
