You can find my stuff elsewhere on the web. At EHow.com I write humorous paranormal articles under the name Lucifera, Queen of Elfhame.  This is my first post ever online. It has been very popular. If you like this let me know and I will write some more. Better yet, you can find more in this vein at EHow.com.

Could it be? Could it be?

When we move into a new house, we have so many concerns, that the atmosphere of the place may be the last thing we consider. The rent is so affordable, the rooms so spacious,and the location so perfect that we ignore the clotted shadows in the corners, the creaking basement stairs plunging into darkness, the dead, evil tree leaning near the front door. But, once we settle in, an unaccustomed weariness overtakes us. We have nightmares, or see strange lights floating in the air, hear cries and moans in the night. We tell ourselves these are merely symptoms of the house settling. Yet, we jump when we glimpse a sudden movement at the corner of our eye! We wake to find the kettle boiling on the stove, or dishes lying broken on the floor. We cannot blame the cat for she has fled…
In time, depression sets in; we have a run of bad luck. Somehow, home becomes the last place we want to be.
The back of our neck prickles. “The house is haunted,” our mind whispers. But we don’t believe in ghosts…

Surely, it is just our own problems assailing us. But how do we know for sure?
Below is one method that has worked for me.

Instructions

Difficulty: Challenging

Things You’ll Need:

  • Courage
  • Mirror

  • White Candle
Step1

no, no, no no, no, no

Do not use a ouija board in such a place! Do not check yourself into a mental ward! Use the following methods in your investigation. They are safer.

Step2

Realize that ghosts cannot hurt you physically. Their power lies in the way they effect your subconscious mind.
Knowing this, resolve to prevent your imagination taking over. Be strong.

Step3

Ghosts live in the in-between, therefore, learn to look through your eyes using your peripheral vision. Gaze at the empty spaces between solid objects. An empty doorway is always good, as is an empty corner of the room, or the empty air at the end of your bed. Still your racing pulse, be receptive. Use all of your six senses…

Step4

You can detect them best in the night, for they are of the night. Determine to stay awake until sunrise.

Step5

Light a candle. Place a mirror flat in front of it. If the flame flickers and flares up, you can be sure the ghost is nigh. Look down into the mirror. If fear creeps up your spine, the ghost is there!
Do not react. Simply say, “Hello”.

Step6

With practice, you will notice things. Like the shadowy shape that stands up when you enter a room. It was sitting in your favorite chair! Or that at 3:00 AM you are awakened by a spectre standing at the foot of your bed.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may have noticed that the neighbors shun you. When they see you, they cross the road. Their children run to the edge of the yard and stare at you silently when you come out of the door. A sure sign that the house is wrong! Ask someone, if they will speak to you, what they know about the place. Even if they say nothing, you will be able to tell by the look in their eyes that they know the whole story.
  • Realize, beyond the shadow of a doubt, if you can see them, they can see you… How do you get rid of ghosts? Before you move out, read my next article: “How to Politely Ask a Ghost to Go Away!”

  1. i am searching on the internet for info about hauntings. my house is beyond a doubt inhabited by spirits–im not sure which kind yet. since i was 2 i can remember things happening–my sister as well. my parents didnt believe us til my mother got hit in the stomach by the oven that flew open and she saw blazing fires in there. then they disappeared as quickly and without a trace as they appeared. we hear soft voices, my bed shakes sometimes, something doesnt want anyone especially me going up the stairs, im always being watched, and i found out that our little statue plays music. no one has ever touched it, and it randomly plays for us. today my mother yelled at me because the curtain rods and the curtains along with them were torn down in our family room. when i left, they were up. that has never happened before. no one was home all day. i dont know what to do. i want to get a hold of my boyfriends tape recorder so that i can ask questions and hopefully those questions will be answered. im just afraid that by that type of acknowledgement, i will only give it/them more power. *sighz*

  2. Wow that is some severe haunting. Poltergeist activity.
    Where do you live? I know some professional ghostbusters and may be able to find you some help.
    I thought the house I stayed in was haunted!
    Really-there are people who can help with this if you can’ move out.
