I think I was so tired from lack of sleep being a new mom, exasperated with all of the ghost crap I had been dealing with, that I just said "WHAT?!" in a totally annoyed voice. No response. How rude!
I normally try to ignore ghosts & other entities (I have some forms of psychic abilities), and I've also had those experiences of ghosts not answering back after they initiated the communications. It just makes them more weird & creepy. I don't understand what they get out of doing those things.

I've posted in this forum previously regarding my home. I live in a 1925 adobe home in New Mexico which is "haunted" by the family that built the home and farmed the land. They are obviously happy here and intend to stay. I never said much about the phenomena but I have multiple witnesses and 2 years ago, a local paranormal investigative team made 6 visits, an all night review, and brought 3 different psychics. It was verifiable and fascinating and we have things on video and audio.

And yes, to answer a question, during my life I have seen objects move by themselves and often in this house, objects disappear, reappear, or never come back. Same thing happens at my neighbor's house. (part of the original farm land).

In addition to the original ghost family, when my ex-husband died suddenly, much to my great horror, his ghost returned here as he thought he was still married to me. It took almost 10 years to get rid of him and it was dreadful. Lots of anger, cold spots, the "ghost computer" of the paranormal team picked up violent words and the psychics were actually frightened of him.

I could go on and on about this property and of other experiences in my life. Yes it's creepy, but so long as the spirits and events are not surrounded by evil or violence, you become accustomed to it and get a sense of humor about it. Often, you visitors do not - an in one case, I had a boyfriend run screaming in the night and never come back. Oh well - I guess he wasn't much of a man to start with.

Our house is 103 years old and we are the third owners. When we first moved in I was alone in the house taking a shower. It was an ugly old bathroom with pink fish wall paper, pink plastic tile, and an old tub with a shower door. I had placed a towel on the towel bar of the shower door and a couple of minutes into my shower I heard a loud noise on the shower door. It took me awhile to get up enough nerve to open the door and look out into the bathroom. I saw my towel in the middle of the bathroom. Something had ripped the towel off of the towel bar. I've heard it walk in the hall way upstairs and walk up and down the stairs. One time I thought it was my husband coming to wake me up from the couch. I called his name but he didn't answer. I jumped up and the dog and I stood at the end of the stairs listening to it walk up the last couple of stairs. I couldn't see anything but I could still hear it. It frightened the kids up in the attic when the door nob started rattling. I checked but no one was there. There has been tapping on the windows and it followed me into the bedroom and tapped on a window inches from my head. A bedroom door opened by itself as I walked up the stairs. That same bedroom has one of my grandmothers antiques that has a key in the door. The key disappeared for months. We finally found it in the basement on one of the shelves in the tool room. How it got there remains a mystery. The very last episode was around Easter. I was watching a few scenes from The Exorcist laughing at how it frightened me when I was a teenager. The window behind my head started rattling and something crashed in the kitchen sending the dogs into a frenzy. I turned off the movie and will never watch it again. Crazy things have happened to me at work as well in more then one work place, but by far the creepiest thing happened in Maine when we were house hunting. Go to my photo album and look at the pictures of the yellow house.

That's how it started in our house (a 1959 bungalow). The basement door would turn its own knob and open on its own accord. From there, it escalated to phantom music softly playing in the basement at night, strange footsteps, wall knockings, bedroom doors opening and closing on their own, unaccountable sounds (like water running in the middle of the dining room), shadow figures, phantom voices and breathing, the dog growling at invisible threats, TV and lamps turning on and off and drawers opening and closing on their own. The activity itself comes and goes... For months nothing will happen and then suddenly we get a variety of incidents within a couple of weeks. It especially gets active around Christmas and when we do any kind of renovations, but also happens at random times for no apparent reason. These incidents have been witnessed by everyone in the house, and occasionally are witnessed by multiple witnesses at one time. And yes, we have CO detectors in the home and have had the electrical wiring checked by a licensed electrician.

It was a bit freaky when we first moved in, but to be honest you just get used to it after awhile. I guess it helps that at no time has the presence in our home acted in a threatening or menacing manner. We find the dog is a lot more wary of it than we are.

We have been in the house for 3 weeks now and haven't noticed any overt signs yet. I must say that I am a bit disappointed. But, maybe she is waiting for us to get settled in, finish unpacking, etc. etc.

I had a European neighbor once tell us she use to put pins on the floor in some of her rooms because of spirits. Apparently it was their way of safeguarding their house from these spirits.

For some reason, since the age of 14 I have lived in older homes. Older homes tend to need renovations at some point and it has been my experience that spirits get very active when renovating. The most recent being I was pushed while tearing up old carpet. I just stood there and said...........sorry this carpet has got to go !! Hopefully when they see the new carpet, it will be ok.

That photo under "supernatural" with all the faces was just a little too creepy for me. I would delete all pics of that place in maine.

I have had strange experiences in several different places. Once when I was working in an old church that had been converted to a home. I was the only one there, but my tools kept disappearing. When I would go look in my tool box, that I had left in another room, the tool I had just laid down was back in the box.
Probably the spookiest was working in a home where three boys had lived and had drowned in a nearby pond a few months before. Even though I was the only one there, I could hear children's voices.

How did you know that that old house you lived was haunted by the family that built and farmed the land? how can you make sure of this ?
Do you believe that if the house is too old must be haunted?
