The anniversary of a family members death is today. For the last 3 weeks, I have had strong feelings of sadness and in the last 2 weeks, I have had occurrences in my home. Occurrence #1 happened 2 weeks ago on a Saturday night. I fell asleep in the recliner inside our home office watching tv. When I awoke, I looked at the clock, 2:30 am. Then I flipped through the tv channels for a few and finally started watching a show. At this time, it's nearly 3 am. I hear footsteps coming down our hardwood floor hallway. The steps sound like hard bottom shoes are being worn, like dress shoes. I am not at home alone, my son and husband are home and I assume it is one of them but thought it weird for them to be wearing dress shoes or any shoes at 3 am. The footsteps got louder as they walked by my door and faded as they went on past. I jumped up, opened the door and found nothing and no one. Son and husband were fast asleep.
So one week later (3 days ago, on a Saturday night) I take the dog out before bed. As we come back in, I turn off the two outside light switches and go to bed. As I snuggle in the blankets, I see a light shining through my bedroom blinds, it's the outside light. I thought I hadn't turned it off after all. I walk back to the front door. I can see them shining through the front door windows and the big bay window beside the front door. But the switches were in the off position! All at once, all the outdoor lights turned off, without the switch being on in the first place! How had they stayed on for at least a minute, that it took me to get in bed the first time, realize they were on and get up to get back to the door? They could have turned off at any time but no, it wasn't until I got up, went to the door to investigate. It's like something wants me to know something else is going on here besides potential electrical issues? Something wants me to know something, not sure what yet.
Side note: I lived alone for almost a decade in my 20's and in a different home than I am currently in. I dealt with electrical issues all the time, lights turning off and on, TV turning off while I am watching it, waking up at 3:00 am on the dot every night for literally years.
So my husband and I have been married for 7 years and the only thing that ever happened up until recently was the TV turned off once. That was right after I moved in and then nothing for years. Now the activity is happening again. I just want to know if it has something to do with my recently deceased family member? Who literally passed 1 year ago today. Or maybe something else? The old energy from my old house. But who or what is it?
Either way, my family chooses not to believe me and my son actually makes light of my stories. I would like to know why this is not happening to anyone in my home but me? This is enough to make me feel crazy but I know what I saw, I know what I heard. Frustrating.
