Electrical Problems or a Ghost?

I’ve lived in my house for 15 years and up until a few years ago never experienced a single thing. One of my bedrooms is up at the front of my house separated from my master bedroom. I live alone. A few years ago, I started observing that every time I went into this bedroom, one of my lamps was turned on… the same one. No matter how many times I turn it off, it’s back on the next time I enter the room. I figured there was a short in the lamp and didn’t think too much of it.

About 6 months ago, I heard a beeping coming from that bedroom and when I investigated, it turned out to be a battery operated travel alarm clock I have sitting on one of my nightstands. No one had been in my house but me and I did not set it. This kind of freaked me out and I rationalized that possibly the battery was low and caused it to malfunction. But it happened again last night.

And a few weeks ago, someone rang my doorbell very vigorously at 2 a.m. on a weeknight, sending me leaping from my bed and running to the front door with my 380 in hand. No one was there. This bedroom is right at the front of the house near the front door and the doorbell. I thought it might have been an old boyfriend or a kid in the neighborhood. I called the police and talked to several of my neighbors and apparently, I am the only one who had my doorbell rung.

Now I am starting to get a little nervous about all this because it seems to be happening with more frequency. I have 2 dogs and one of them sometimes barks for no apparent reason but she has always had issues so it could just be her. What do you think? Is this just a series of weird circumstances or do I have something else to worry about?

  1. Well, I guess no one wants to tackle this question. I confess I’ve always been a nonbeliever when it comes to the paranormal. I have a hard time believing it’s anything but electrical issues…but I still get the creeps every time I walk past this room.

  2. To thee goddess
    Not to make light of your circumstances, it might be nothing, hermana. Start a hobby to get your mind off these odd occurances. Personally i dont stress over it until i actually see things flying around that i start to freak out.

  3. Library Goddess,
    I think you came through as Anonymous, there. It’s possible that it could be something electrical, but it could possibly be something else, if you are up to hearing it.( I am guessing that you are or you would not be on this site! ;) ) It could either be an earthbound spirit or you are creating a Poltergeist Phanominon. I am assuming that you could possibly be close to the age of menopause. (Sorry, if that seems personal, I don’t know any other better way to describe this, and do correct me if I am wrong!) You see, it has been known that teenage girls and menopausal woman create this phenominon of telekinesis. Basically you are the one causing the lights to go on and off and so on. Telekinetic energy in women is very strong during the times of puberty and menopause. I can attest to this because things would inexplicably move when I was in my teens and I would usually get scared and say it was a ghost. Once, I made the record player I was listening to( and I mean record, not CD!!(giving away my age!) lift off the record in the middle. If you are the age I think(again being very presumptuous! sorry!) you know that a record player doesn’t lift off until the record is finished. Could have been a glitch in the machine, sure, or it could have been telekinetic! Just a few explanations for you and I hope I have not offended you with the age thing. I was just trying to explain my theory.
