During the autumn months, my phone rings off the hook with people looking for readings and advice regarding how to deal with things that are going bump in the night. This never surprises me as I wrote in this Blog, the “veil” is thin. In the fall, it is easier for Spirit to communicate with us causing people to fear the paranormal activity they are experiencing (advice calls) or have a greater desire to communicate with their loved ones (increased readings).
I know all this. I expect an increase in calls. I expect my “waiting room” to be more full. I even expect to see more Spirits when I am running errands. What I don’t expect is for more “bumps” in the night IN MY HOUSE. But, that’s exactly what I’ve been experiencing recently.
It all started a few weeks ago...
...when my family decided to go on an impromptu trip. We had asked our friend to check in on our house. He was going to put the garbage out, bring the cans back, bring any mail we received in, as well as run the CSA pick-up. Upon arriving, our friend discovered our back door was wide open. Additionally, there was a chirping from what he assumed was a smoke detector going off. Finding it odd, he shot me a text to ask if anyone else had been by.
As no one else had been. Not concerned, I told my friend not to worry about it and chided my husband (he was the last one out) for not pulling the door shut behind him. Upset, my husband insisted he had pulled the door tight. I didn’t believe him.
Since we’ve gotten back, the back door has been found open more than a dozen times. After one of the most recent where we hadn’t even left the driveway as our daughter was having a toddler moment, my husband pointed out the open door, that I was the last one out and assured me that he saw me pull the door shut. I was dumbstruck and asked the universe, “Who is visiting?”
I didn’t get a clear answer. More, I didn’t feel anything or anyone.
Not feeling anything, I dismissed it and assumed one of my deceased loved ones was playing with us. They’ve done it before. With that in mind, I ask that they cool it.
The occurrences have continued to escalate. Over the past two weeks, my daughter has refused to sleep in her bed. As if haven’t a toddler in the bed wasn’t bad enough, she has also insisted on sleeping with the light on. We’ve negotiated, and while she has gotten to sleep in our bed the lights have been turned off. But, those lights that we’ve gone around and turned off, in the middle of the night get turned on. In addition, we have noticed that items in the house are being moved. There has been so much activity that I was beginning to think maybe someone alive and corporeal was coming in to punk us.
As of right now, I haven’t figured it out. I still don’t feel a Spirit. But, some Spirits do hide from mediums and if it is a mischievous elemental like a faerie, I might not feel them. That doesn’t mean, however, I’m not taking action.
Here is what I am doing, and you can do if you find yourself in a similar situation:
Smudge – By smudging, I am pushing out the negative energy and bringing in the positive. For more about that, click here for a video on smudging.
Protection – I’m being more vigilant about protecting my space. In my work, I welcome Spirits in all the time. I’m comfortable in doing that in that I know that only the highest and best will come in. But as in all things, sometimes I need to be a little more vigilant. So I will be doing more of that.

Pay Attention – I’m going watch. I’m going to make sure I shut doors, remember where I put things, have my husband do the same. This way we will see if it is real, or if we are imagining the activity. Life has been a little crazy around here, perhaps we have just gotten sloppy.
Stay Calm – Most importantly, I’m not going to freak out. Spirits thrive on our energy and like attracts like. As long as I keep a positive attitude, that’s the type of energy that will be around.
And, if it doesn’t stop. I might call in reinforcements. Even though I have the skills to manage what Spirit throws my way, sometimes it is nice to get a second opinion. That’s what happens when people call me, and fortunately I do have people I can call as well!
