First of all : What does a Haunted House mean?
Some Typical Signs of a Suspected Presence in a House:
A general uneasy feeling: like you are not alone or you are being watched are common in most reports of a possible haunting.Noises that you can’t explain: Knocking or rapping, sounds of movement similar a shuffling of feet, or the sound of fabric as if someone just turned and walked out of or into a room, footsteps, voices, whispering, subtle or loud banging, the sound of a door opening or closing. Items missing or article of furniture moved: Personal or commonly used item such as a hair brush, tooth brush or car keys disappearing only to be returned at a latter time, what typically happens is the item is found days later in exactly the place they were left or will turn up in an obvious place that could not have been overlooked during even the most casual search, this phenomena has been referred to as the “barrower’s phenomena”.
Electrical or appliance issues: lights and or appliances turning on and off by themselves, most reports of this type are reported to have occurred when the person experiencing the phenomena is not present, usually when they return home or wake up in the morning and they know the appliances or lights were not left in the way they were discovered.
Unexplained movement: such as a light or shadow, sometimes you may even believe you saw or heard someone walk by and you know nobody is there. The most common report is that of shadows or flashes. Unexplained temperature changes: These are known as “Cold Spots or “Warm Spots” usually a drop or rise of 10 to 20 degrees in a localized area indicate something either did or attempted to manifest itself, meaning a spirit or entity may have attempted to make itself known. Spirits and entities will draw energy from their surroundings to manifest, creating a cold or warm spot.
Pets Alerting: A dog barking or growling at something that you can not see, or suddenly runs from a room as if it were being chased, dogs have been known to refuse to enter a room as if they are frightened of something. Birds reacting as though they were startled for no apparent reason, cats appearing to watch something or someone move across the room.
The Feeling of Being Touched: The typical report of this is the feeling that your hair or an article of your clothing has been tugged on, or someone touches you on the hand, arm, or leg. Now all of that being said there are usually perfectly reasonable explanations for these occurrences, however if these things are happening on a regular basis you might consider keeping a log of the times, places, and frequency of the experiences. A log would be extremely helpful if you decide to have a paranormal team come in and conduct an investigation. © Copyright 2009 by Oquirrh Mountain Paranormal Investigators
