First of all, not everyone who believes in the paranormal, believes in God. There are no prerequisites.
Some believe in one. Some in both.

The first experience has happened to me quite a bit. It isn't uncommon. It does seem to happen when we are rushed, chaotic, and in somewhat unfamiliar surroundings.
If you just misplaced something, I wouldn't think that it was a spirit. However, the fact that something disappeared and reappeared, is pretty classic paranormal activity. Nothing serious, but I believe what you wrote happened to you, and obviously that isn't natural.

It could be a house spirit - all homes have them - playing a small trick on you. Or it could be a former resident, letting you know that they are still around.
Either way, it's annoying, but noting to worry about.

The second incident sounds like a ghost of a former owner, possibly someone who was not fond of children. Since you no longer live there, you needn't worry about that either.
I can't tell if it's an intelligent haunting, and actual spirit of a dead person - or a haunting that is sort of like an imprint of something that was said in response to an event that happened a long time ago that plays over and over when the situation is right - in this case, when someone enters the attic.

Now might be a good time to ask your mother what, if any; her experiences were in that attic.

I have no doubt that you are sensitive to these things. That's not a bad thing at all.
Certainly. The media often portrays these things as some sort of evil entity, so if they happen to a person that may be their first 'go to' explanation.

They are relatively common and frequently deceased relatives just saying 'hello' and reassuring you that life continues on. The body is just a container. It is not 'you'.
