I don't agree with this idea. It does sound as though she is just passing through during her transition. Let her transition, and do not attempt contact now.

I am not sure that I would welcome an entity touching me. Or my alarm clock. And fooling around with an electric heater is potentially dangerous.

All events are typical of spirit contact and a possible haunting - manipulation of mechanical and electrical devices, light touching and stroking are classic.

If the OP would rather not have this woman's spirit as a constant companion, I would refrain from attempting contact. And please, DO NOT use the Ouija board.

But...then why hasn't this kind of thing ever happened in any of the past Decembers? Why finally now?

Anything else happen lately?

I think she means that the former owner passed this December.

OK, take this with a pinch of salt...

[belief]
If, as we have been told by some, that the earth is going through a period of energetic change, then it makes sense that the conditions are now more favourable for other beings to come and have an impact on our environment.

There are lots of beliefs about this December 2012, ranging from end-of-world scenarios to a galactic alignment with the centre of the universe but all seem to have the same general theme that there will be changes (energetic and physical) to our normal way of life.

If these people are correct in anything, we should see more of this kind of thing happening and we will have to get used to sharing our environment with other beings of other worlds. Maybe it will prompt science to start investigating things of an energetic nature more?

I too have had situations where I am certain that I set my alarm, looked right at it set and then would wake up 45 minutes after it was set to go off with no recollection of it going off, or turning it off. Finally one day, I tell me wife about this, and she informed me that on occasion, my alarm would go off, and I would just sleep right through it, until it just finally stops beeping. Not saying that's the case for you, but apparantly it is for me.

A few strange happenings inside my new home, which I purchased back in July, include lights which turn off and on, my girlfriend's hair was tugged on, the gas on our stove has inexplicably turned on in the middle of the night a handful of times now waking me up with the odor, a door handle that often jiggles somewhat violently, and you can almost feel the presence of a large person standing on our hardwood floors - you can actually hear the footsteps and the floor boards creaking from the weight of whatever is standing there.

I can deal with everything except the gas on the stove being turned on, so I think I'll switch to electric.

You think your ghost is scary, wait until you try cooking with an electric stove. Ugh.

The violent jiggling of a door handle would freak me out big time. The for sale sign would have hit my property the first day after that happened. And, I would have had to purchase a new pair of underpants.

I've encountered what I perceive to be poltergeist type activity before, but nothing particularly scary or dangerous like what you've described. More like a little kid trying to get your attention.

Oddly enough, I'm just numb to it. Other than the gas on the stove, nothing seems malicious, just annoying and certainly not scary in any way.

I didn't believe in all this before I moved into this home. There comes a point where logically explaining these events just isn't making sense.

Some random Guy, I think that the 'veil' between somewhere else and here must be very thin where you live to get all that. I admire you for being able to handle it all actually.

Have you tried talking to them out loud, 'cos it might change something.

How do you explain it to yourself after not believing it for so long?

I guess you are sure you are not sleep walking and cooking something yummy? :-)
