I came on this group a month ago, and was hoping to see people put their stories out for other members to learn from, to compare their own experiences to, but I have yet to see any. Is there a place where people are discussing events like hauntings?
My story is a very long one, and it is hard to talk to the 'normal' people in my life that probably won't understand and will think I'm crazy, a liar, or just seeking attention - or they are too close to me and would be afraid if they realized I was telling the truth. I hope to get an open mind, or two or a dozen, on here that may want to compare notes, or have similar events or may need help or just someone to talk to. Years went by when I was desperate for answers, for a cure or a stop to the things that were happening, but some things are hard to discuss for fear of ridicule. Eventually I found help, and it was actually the main ghost that was haunting me that gave me that help. I may get to the details eventually, but first I just want to give the generalities of the situation before going into any detail. Of course any and all names will be changed to protect the innocent, and the guilty. For now that is not necessary as this is just a summation of the story.
The basic story in general is that in in 1976 I was 15 years old and we (myself, sister, and a couple very close cousins) were at a campground and decided to have a séance to raise the spirit that was haunting the house of a friend of my sister. We thought it was a joke, something fun to do, but it changed some of our lives for quite a long time - mine for sure. That event was in Michigan when I was 15, and that spirit made her appearances ever since then, no matter where I have been - all over the world. I moved to Europe in 1981 and she followed me, I have seen her in at least 5 or 6 different countries on 3 continents over the past 40 years.. sometimes in a solid form, other times as a shadow, other times just her voice or feeling her close by, and sometimes just from the noises she made moving things or because she moved things around in the various houses I have lived in over the years. She was a prankster at times, moving things when I wasn't looking, or moving things in the next room in a way that I was sure to hear. She came into my dreams and when I woke up screaming from some of those dreams she would be in the room for a second or two, rocking in my rocking chair or just standing in the doorway. Other times she came to me and saved my life; this happened quite a few times. Other people have seen her when she was solid so I know she is real. I even managed to get a picture of her once. I have touched her, talked with her, both in dreams and when I was awake. She has possessed people to talk to me longer, and in her many attempts to seduce me. Finally another spirit came into the house that was not as 'friendly' as she, and that was when she told me how to protect my daughters and the house from them. By 'them' I mean spirits in general - once I did what she told me to do, all spirits were blocked from being in my house, including her. I still notice her on occasion in other places as I travel rather frequently so sometimes she reminds me that she is there, but it is much calmer than it was in the past. Not sure what to make of that, but calm is fine with me! She found her way back into the house a little over a month ago, but it is at a very light level as most of the house still blinds her and she cannot move as freely as she once did.
Anyway, that is the very top level generalities of this haunting that has been going on, on and off, for the past 40 years. I might tell parts of my story if there is interest, but some is very personal and I will never tell those parts to anyone.
She is in no way limited to a place, actually has been on one side of the Atlantic at one time and on the other side less than an hour later. She does not change over time. She can make herself visible to me only, or to everyone.. once she was being a prankster that I could see and a small girl saw her too, but no one else did. I don't know why she stayed with me, or around me, for so long or how to send her back to wherever she came from (if that is even possible). I do know how to keep her and the others out of my house, but not out of my life.
