My House Is Haunted
In honor of Halloween, I’m sharing more of my family’s ghostly experiences because we live in a haunted house. Living with ghosts isn’t scary, even though most people think it would be. My mom is sensitive, meaning she can see ghosts. When I was a kid, my mom would tell a story about a male spirit who would watch over her.
Last Christmas, I arranged for my family to visit with a psychic medium. He told my mom that a male spirit likes to hang around my mom because the ghosts know that she can see them. She’s not the only one, my brother-in-law woke up one night and saw a little boy sitting on the edge of his bed. Our staircase is a hotspot for ghostly spectators. One evening I thought I saw an apparition of a lady in a nightdress on those stairs. I mentioned the sighting at a family meal. And my mom said that an orb will follow her while she is on the steps. Orbs are balls of light that move—sometimes they are a representation of spirits being present and other times they are a representation of angels being present.
Our dogs and other family pets are aware of the spirits too! They will often sit on the stairs and wag their tails while staring at the empty staircase. My mom had a strange experience while vacuuming the stairs. When mom vacuums, my black lab, Link, barks and growls at the vacuum as if it’s a monster that he wants to slay. Link was feeling exceptionally playful one day, jumping and barking at the vacuum, when he suddenly turned his head and slunk into the hallway. My mom believes that the spirit on the steps was trying to let Link know that it wasn’t safe to play on the stairs.
My most recent experience took place one night when I created a social media post about the ghostly activity in my family home. As I hit the “send” button, a book came flying off my dresser and landed in a cardboard box. I was nowhere near the dresser. The book’s title was There’s Someone Inside Your House! I’m used to things like this happening in our house and I was not frightened at all. I laughed because I felt the ghost was teasing me. Living in a haunted house really isn’t scary.
