Strange Visitations and Banging Noises

Posted on January 13, 2011

As long as I can remember, I have always been the one visited by “something or someone” before or after a death, or just whenever.

I can remember when my grandmother passed away when I was 9 years old on Christmas day. Directly after she passed, my sisters and I, who all slept upstairs, would hear footsteps going up and down the stairs. My bedroom was directly across from my sisters room. During this time, I would hear “heavy breathing” coming from under my bed. My grandmother passed away for pneumonia which she developed while hanging Christmas lights for us kids.

Well you can image that between the footsteps up and down the stairs and the breathing and being only 9 years old (my sisters were both younger), it scared the heck out of us.

As we screamed for our mother, she seems to know exactly what was going on. She explained to us that it was just our grandmother checking on us to make sure we were okay and not to be afraid. She said she told spoke grandma that she was scarring us, and everything stopped.

Well that’s what I thought, from then on there’s always been something strange going on. I seem to be the one who is visited whenever there is a death or is going to be one. Lights will go off and on, light bulbs will burn out, TVs will go off and on, birds will appear, especially crows, except one time when my daughters grandfather on her dad’s side passed, then one white dove appear on my windowsill and stayed there for 2 days. All sorts of strange things.

The reason I am writing this story is because there is one thing that started happening about 10 years ago when I moved into this rental. Loud banging on the floor under my bed, now and then the bed would shake and this would also happen even if I was laying on the couch in the living room.

The thing is, there was no basement in this house, only dirt and the furnace. To get down to the furnace, you would have to go through floor in my closet. Lifting up the hatch and climbing down a ladder. Ok fine… I went down there over and over again, thinking maybe there was an animal trapped or something. Nothing… I asked my neighborhoods would lived in the house before me if they had experience anything… No. So I just chalked it up to another one of my psychic experiences. This would always happen at night. I could lay in my bed all day long… nothing until nighttime. And not every night, but when it happened, it was always really loud… Bang… Bang…

Ok, moving forward, I moved… well guess what… it’s happening again in the house I live in now, which by the way does have a basement. I have tried to cleanse both houses, but it still goes on in my new home.

What is going on? It has gotten to the point, that I go home at night and state out loud, “look, I’m tired of you waking me up at night, and I want to get some sleep, so if you are going to start your noise, then do it now.” Sometimes there’s nothing and then other nights, it will happen a couple of times. Just a really loud ‘bang’.

I have to admit, there are nights when it scares me cause I don’t know what’s going on and why. I can’t get rid of it, then there are other nights, I just say… Whatever!

My mother just passed again in October. She passed on a Monday, but I didn’t find out until the next day. After learning that she had passed, I remembered that the night before (which would have been the day she passed), my TV went off and on and lights flickering.

You know I can handle that, what I want to know is what or who is making all the banging noise and how did it follow me to my new home, and how do I get rid of it. Any suggestions?

peace out

    I know that crows are a sign of evil. not sure about the other stuff. I think you may be psychic. I carry stuff with me also. I can see ghosts even at my new house if someone dies that I know. then the ghost will sometimes come and visit me. as far as the bed shaking that may be evil. look at the exorcist. that was based off a true story of a boy who was also seeing his bed shake. so I would shout I the name of Jesus Christ leave me alone. Wear a cross. I have never seen crows or had my bed shake. i would be very afraid. pray to Jesus for protection.

    • Caretaker says:

      Crows are just birds and they are not a sign of anything at all. There are crows all around here where we live. They are just a wild animal and have nothing to do with evil!

      • Anonymous says:

        I agree with you Caretaker….but i think the 3 crows hanging around me are men that have been in my life that are now passed. First on being my stepfather, second one my daughters father and third one my ex-boyfriend. Birds are always hanging around.

        When my uncle Gordon passed, i had 2 pigeons show up and hand around for a couple of days…strange thing is…he raised homing pigeons…figure that one out.

        i will leave you with that thought and please stay tune for more stories from my life.

      • sharayah says:

        some people believe crows are a bad omen,a sign some thing bad is going to happen.me my self i don’t believe they are evil. but maybe evil people have use them in the pass and they got a bad rap.

        • Caretaker says:

          Yeah, you are right, it as about a bad rap and that came from fiction stories and the like. If crows are evil then it is always evil around here :) We see crows every day. They are just a part of the wildlife here. Awhile back someone was saying that if you see a vulture that it is an evil omen… Well, we must be in bad shape around here because we see them every day too. If you live out in the country you see animals all the time so it is impossible to take claims like “they are evil or they represent evil” etc very seriously.

          I tell you what now, if I see a human being coming up through the yard it would be more likely to be an evil omen than if I saw a bunch of crows or vultures flying around :)

          • sharayah says:

            yeah animales in there self are not bad,but i do believe that they can be possesed by demons.maybe what people seen was animales that were possesed. and that’s where the stories of evil crow or just animales come from. people do take things way out of hand. and have made up dramatic stories as the years go by. hi caretaker,oh i went to wordpress but i couldn’t find a way to put up a pic :( (

            • Caretaker says:

              at wordpress.com you create an account and then you have an option of adding the avatar to it.

              And more about those animals. Note that crows and vultures are black as are bats and of course there are black cats. It seems that we have often associated the color black with evil when in reality it is just a matter of pigmentation :) See pigs aren’t considered evil because they are pink ;) nor are bunny rabbits, deer, squirrel, etc.

              • sharayah says:

                i must be slow cause i couldn’t find a way too make a account.oh well thank you so the help. later caretaker ;)

              • Bella says:

                thank you! my cat is black with one white spot on her chest, and never brought me or my parents any bad luck. But she is very old and getting sick, we (my family and I ) cant afford a vet for her, so wish her luck, please!

                • Caretaker says:

                  Hello Bella, the color of a cat or any other animal has nothing to do with the paranormal or luck – it is just biology at work :)

      thank you carri for your response. i know i’m psychic, being a triple scorpio born on the cusp on the new moon. This story is ONLY the beginning of what i will be bringing to all of you.

      Crows on the other hand are not evil. I truly believe they are the spirits of the 3 very important men in my life that have passed. They were all good friends in life and i believe they are together now. They would always be in my backyard-just the 3 of them.

      Yes, i agree with you, there have been evil things around me and i have cast them off in my own way, and yes Jesus’s name is included.

      thank you for your response and stay tune for more of my True Ghost Tales

    Doves are a sign of the holy spirit.

      hi carri,

      it’s me again, cindy…..yes i was REALLY surprised to see a white dove sitting outside my window and in tree right outside my door. the dove just hung out for a couple of days which in itself is unusal cause birds don’t just hang around like that, they usually go somewhere at night.

      Thay was the only time for the DOVE…

      stay tuned

      • Skylark says:

        I do not think that a bird staying around your house for a couple of days is associated with death or anything weird like that. At my house there use to be 2 doves that were always together and they would always come around 5:00pm or 6:00pm and just sit together on the swingset (it was very cute btw). I don’t think they came to tell me that someone died, I think they were there to rest or had a home nearby or maybe my yard just had a lot of food for them.

  3. Shivani says:

    The noise might be coming because your children’s grandfather from their father’s side could be loitering in your house and maybe he wants to tell you something at night not in the morning. So you can try going down in your basement (in your new house) and say “If there is any one here please knock once” if there is no answer get some flour from your kitchen and spread it on the floor so if any aparition is there there will be footsteps. Basically a ghost is a troubled soul come back to fulfill its wishes so try talking to the ghost by saying ” In the name of god what do you want?” If this dosen’t help call some ghost hunters.

    • cindy says:

      Hi Shivani,

      I totally understand what you are saying. Believe me i have confronted whoever or whatever. I have gone into the basement, sat on the stairs talked to them, asked them what they want and why they are making so much noise. I have asked them to leave. I understand about ghost and i do talk to them. My daughter thinks it might be the old man who use to own the house and he has come back to tell me something, but this was going on before i moved into this house, i keep trying to think of who it might be, and it may be my grandmother or grandfather who have both passed.

      I don’t think they/it means harm (i hope) there has not been any physcial stuff yet, just noise and bed shaking (that happened in my past residence).

      I will keep everyone informed…and please stay tune for more from me.

    doves, butterflys and such have come to me around the time of my mom’s death but it was spring so i just chalk it up to the warmer weather. crosses and statues and such are man made. i don’t think they influence activity in any way either.

    • Caretaker says:

      trolldoll, just wanted to say that I really like your comments and replies. You are a wise person.

      • trolldoll says:

        thanks caretaker! :) i listened to my parents growing up and when they say i never want to be like them, well lets just say a few things rubbed off lol!! say hi to the wife and kids!

  5. chan says:

    I been dealing with ghosts all my life, maybe a demon. Who knows? I certainly don’t… All I know is I had something happen in my life that was similar to yours. It followed me from my house and into the military. Talking to “it” doesn’t help and I advise you not to do it. If you want it to stop, just ignore it for a good 2-3 years and it’ll eventually stop.

  6. Suzi says:

    Wow thats kinda weird but things like that can follow you place to place but getting rid of them now thats another story. I mean this could be a friendly ghost thats telling you something is not right.

    Simply say, God rebuke you in Jesus name. Every time you sense anything this is what you say. Get a Bible, read it and leave it open o your nighstand. If you do this all the encounters will stop.
