I remember when I was little our house would make sounds and every time I told my parents they would say, “Oh, it’s just the house settling.”
My parents were not coddlers. Once we reached a certain age there was no more whining to my dad. He was done checking for monsters under the bed and in the closet.
“But daddy, I heard something. Something’s there.”
His response? “Oh pig shit. There’s nothing there in the dark that isn’t there in the light. Go to bed.”
Au contraire mon frere.
Fast forward many, many years and now my nephew is living in the house. The same house. The house that was always “just settling.” Well, that “house settling” turned out to be some creepy little ghost girl that hung out in the hallway who was seen on several occasions by people who visited the house.

Makes perfect sense to me since every time I walked down that hallway I would always feel like I was being watched and many times I heard someone call my name but it was a man’s voice calling out to me. I always thought was my dad calling from the den but when I would go see my dad and ask him what he wanted he’d say, “I didn’t call you.”
“But daddy, I heard someone call my name.”
I’m sure you can guess what his response was..
“Oh pig shit.”
And that began a life time of living with spirits/ghosts hanging around me.
My question for you today is, do you believe in spirits/ghosts?
Have you ever had a paranormal experience?
Have you ever lived in a haunted house?

I used to think every house I lived in was haunted but now I just think I have these “people” from the flip side of life that attach themselves to me for whatever reason.
I’ve had encounters with my grandma, my uncle, my nephew and my dad.

I absolutely believe in spirits/ghost, altho I have to say, when I was younger I was somewhat obsessed with Harry Houdini and every Halloween I would light candles in my room and wait for him to return.
He said he would. He never did. At least not to me.

What say ye’? Are spirits real or imagined?
Is it the house settling or spirits settling??
Lemme’ know in the comments below!
