I consider myself a pretty open person as far as paranormal experiences and spirits are concerned. When we purchased our 1920's home my husband and i discussed the possibilty that the house may come with a spirit or two, it wasnt a huge concern, i walked through the house numerous times before we purchased it but couldn't "feel" anything and we loved the house so we purchased it.

About six to eight months after this a spirit or ghost made it's presence known. We werent seriously concerned or upset as i didnt feel the spirit meant any harm it was simply doing things to let us know it was there - stirring the cat up, turning my hairdryer on, opening doors, rocking the bed slightly - nothing dangerous or scary, if it really bothered me i would simply ask it to leave and it would stop. I did try to talk to it a few times with no response.

But that brings us to my current problem. Hubby and i are renovating the baby's room and it involves ripping skirting boards off exposing the walls and drilling into the boarded up fireplace. Ever since we started taking the room apart i have felt uneasy, it's gotten worse as we begin to expose the original walls and get into the fireplace. I feel scared and out of place. i could be wrong but i feel like there is a presence in that room and its not a friendly one. Nothing has actually happened though, no lights flickering or doors slamming - nothing to let us know there is a spirit there and its unhappy, its simply a feeling i have.

I feel so silly about this whole thing and havent mentioned it to hubby but he can tell something is wrong. I get home from work before hubby does and have to walk past the door to the room we are renovating and i just hate it. I let the dog inside and she refuses to go into that room. It's driving me nuts, i dont want to come home, i feel horrible walking around in the house, i'm on edge all the time. Hubby walked up behind me last night and i want expecting it, i was just about climbing up the walls

Does anyone have any ideas on somethings i can try or perhaps a website or other forum with some people who may be able to help me? I-do doesnt seem like they have a huge experience in this sort of thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'm sorry you are feeling scared in your own home. That must be so awful. sad.gif

I don't know anything about these things but a girl at work was talking about "Smudge Sticks" a couple of weeks back as she had used one when she moved to her new home. Maybe it might help?

Evil spirits can enter into our world through many open doorways. Smudge sticks are ritually used to cleanse an environment or a person of negative energy, forcing the evil entity to leave your home and to transform itself from darkness back into light

I was going to suggest a smudge stick too. My mothers husband used to often come around and smudge for me at the old house, as Kaele is very sensitive and see's.
It was my first port of call when she was really unsettled.
He also gave us a crystal, which we "tell" what we want from it, for us "Have Kaele sleep sound, without being disturbed" and we leave it in her cot/bed.

I think you are doing the right things, asking whatever is there to leave you alone. Remind it - that it is not welcome there, but also smudge the room that freaks you out!

Beware, I think it smells like pot LOL, your neighbours might think badly of you haha!

When Craig does my house, he used to do the inside, of all rooms, and then he did the permieter of the house.

Go with your feeling, even if you are not right its still a feeling you have so you need to take steps to feel better.

I would get a cleansing of the house and send those evil spirits away.

Firstly, you can talk to your angels, you can channel your own angels but just thinking to them or talking out loud. Ask them to look after you and your house and send away the spirits.

Secondly, you could get somebody who does this sort of thing in. You could find them through spiritual websites etc, but I can ask my sister if she knows anybody in Perth...she is that way inclined and actually had her own house cleansed.

There could also be various crystals you could get that would help.

Smudge stick is the first thought I had. You could try essentialbaby.com.au they have a spiritual section, You can even post pics of the room and ppl will tell you what they can see.

Things to try:
*smudge stick
*crystal to absorb negativity (clear quartz, jet) placed in the room for a while then cleansed in moonlight and/or rainwater
*talk to the spirit - explain what you're doing and what you want (you might feel silly, but it could work too)
*leave a copy of the plans in the room overnight so any spirits etc can see what you're doing.
*leave an offering near the fireplace (some kind of food (honey, milk) or alcohol (whiskey) is good, or you could try something shiny)
*Sit outside the room and envision it filling with smoke. When it's completely filled, imagine the smoke draining out of the room through the centre of the floor taking all negativity with it, and dispersing through the earth.

Smudge the whole house and garden, not just that room.

Ask around people that you know of that are into the spiritual side of things, who may know of a good psychic or the like who can help with the removal of the spirit. If you believe in this, a good clairvoyant may also be able to connect with the spirit and explain why they are still there and that can be a great help in moving them on.

But, the girls on here have certainly offered the right advice, smudge sticks, crystals, angels and certanly imagining a white light everywhere is good. Also, imagine a white bubble falling over your body and sealing at your feet, then bathing it in a white light. Do this for each member of the family to ensure protection. Talk to the spirit and explain what is happening. I don't know how things are for you or how spiritually in tune you may be; but I find my dreams a very powerful tool for communicating.

Good Luck! But don't be afraid, I am sure the spirit means you no harm, just distressed with the changes of 'their place'.

I was going to suggestion a smudge stick too but I am thinking that may be you are picking up on their energy of not liking what you are doing???

Like you said, they seem like a good spirit and are not going to do something horrible to you because you are renovating the room but they still might not like the fact that you are doing it IFYKWIM and you are picking up on the "feeling".

Trust me if they really don't like it they will tell you. A girl I know was renovating their house and the spirit didn't like what they doing and picked up the paint cans and threw them. "She" tried everything in her power to stop them from renovating. They did and they also sold the house tongue.gif I don't think your spirit sounds that mean smile.gif

My Mum had strange things happening in her old house and once she finished renovating they left.

The above were my first two thoughts as well.

It may not be an 'evil spirit'. It could simply be a spirit that has been in the house for decades who is distressed about the change.

I think seeking a medium to converse with the spirit would be beneficial for all involved (including the spirit - it may be the help they require to move on, or accept the change etc)

I also liked the suggestion of leaving the plans in the room overnight for them to look over.

In all honesty, I think you need to decide which outcome you want, the spirit gone, or the spirit to continue 'living' in your home, but harmoneously (sp?) and then decide on a plan of action from there smile.gif

Thankyou
Heather i do have angel cards and have used them before. I ased them for guidance and protection this morning.

I went to a shop nearby today and bought some smudge stics and a crystal for baby. The ladies in the shop were very helpful and had lots of advice. I went home this afternoon and whenever i felt or heard it just imagined myself surrounded in a white light like bubble. It helped alot.
I talked to it again today and explained about the renovations. I also told it we would be doing the smudge stic, what it involved and that it was simply to remove all negative things from the house. I told the spirit it was welcome to stay but that negativity was not welcome.

When hubby came home we did the smudge stick and it was ok, i felt really at ease afterwards. We'll see if it lasts

Thans for all the advice
aimee

Great, I hope it lasts. Sounds like you have done some great steps to keep said spirit on side but also look after yourselves!

How is it going with that room? spirit?

I think that the fact that a. you're moving stuff and you didnt get permision to change 'their' house and b. a baby on the way will create more activity...

I would also leave a growing plant in that room, a flowering one...

I'm not too sure what a smudge stick is but you could also try burning some sage. That is supposed to cleanse rooms of unwanted guests as well.

Not sure how things are going, but another thing to try with the smudge stick is to get a spray bottle and fill it with water and sea salt and you spray that in the corners of the room and also outside.
Anyways hope your problem has been sorted
