Could my house be Haunted???

I absolutely love my new house. There are so many wonderful things about it, but things aren't always what they seem...
My house was built in 1937, so it is now almost 73 yrs old. I'd like to find out a little more about the history. I know the past two owners, so I may have to check with them about what I am about to share with you...
I have been hearing some strange noises since about the first week we moved in. It sounds like a child is running up and down the hallway upstairs. I heard it, but didn't want to say anything to Brody because I knew he'd get mad at me. (I am always the one that has to look into the attic, ever since he saw Grudge, and check out scary ghostly things). He gets too freaked out!
The first time Brody noticed it he called me when I was in California and said he had heard some strange noises. He said he heard a child in the hallway, he jumped out of bed to look, but nothing was there. He did this a couple of times each night, but never saw anything. I told him I had heard the same thing. I know it is not in the attic, because you'd hear it above you, not next to you, and we know it is not a small as a mouse or a rat, it is distinctly the size of a child, or at least a dog, but sounds like two feet... I looked in the attic which is small because our upstairs is basically the attic, but saw nothing unusual. I did find a hidden room behind Brody's closet. It has carpet, but the walls aren't finished, spooky! And last week Brody found the strangest thing in the hallway upstairs- HELP ME -carved into the wall. Yes, carved not written. It is so small but totally freaks me out. I thought I could help the spirit of this child find the light, like on Ghost Whisperer, but now I think its time for a professional intervention, because things are getting creepy with the HELP ME. Brody doesn't like talking about it so I thought I'd see what any of you guys thought I should do!
Oh and when I am home alone when the kids have been asleep I always hear strange noises, doors and creaks, I always think I am getting robbed, but it could be tied together.

Ok that is totally freaky. I didn't know you found those words. Yikes, do you think Brody is playing a trick on you and he carved it? Hmm seems suspicious to me.
I think you need the house blessed or dedicated. Maybe have Trent, Dad, and Jeff come down and give the house a blessing or some sort. I know you can do that and maybe that will help. You know I am a total chicken I have Hudson go in my basement at night and in the day when we're home alone to get stuff for me because i hate to go down there. I think it stems for our childhood of living in the red padded room.

That is so weird and scary! I am such a baby, I would be freaked out all the time if it were my house. Good luck!

Becky said...

That is freaky! Your house is totally haunted. The first thing I thought of was you need to bless and dedicate your house, if you already haven't. That's one of the first things we did when we moved in. I would be so scared. Good luck, let us know how it turns out!

Amy said...

Good luck!!

Kelsie said...

CREEPY! That seriously just sent chills down my spine reading that! I don't do well with watching ghost whisperer let alone reading about scary ghost stories about my cousins house :( I hope things resolve them self. I agree with everyone else, you should get have Brody and your dad bless your house. I bet that would help a ton!

My dad blessed our house after we had some "issues" - - and it really did the "trick" ! So - get those priesthood holder men in your family to it ! If Brody wants help - - - I'm sure your dad will be up for it ! Good luck w/ that ! course the timing is perfect !!!

Jenn said...

Amy...THAT IS SOOO SCARY!!! I am SUCH a baby about stuff like that so I think I would have been in tears the minute I found that "carpet" room behind the closet!! and the "help me"..well...that would have sent me screaming down the street! Get the priesthood in that house ASAP for a serious blessing! Good luck.
