12 months ago my husband and I, along with our 8 year old son and then 2 year old daughter, moved from busy city life to a rambling 120 year old home in a small country town. Almost straight away we noticed unusual things in the house such as unexplained noises toilet flushing light bulbs blowing very regular breezes without open windows, ornaments turned backwards, and strange smells. I was alarmed and thought of ghosts but my husband said it's an old house with creaky boards and faulty wiring so don't worry about it, but then our little girl started having lengthy one sided conversations in her bedroom. We thought it was nothing, just being a toddler, although she has always been very forward for her age and as a newborn never cried and people would say she's been here before. Even today she is called an old lady in a little girl's body as the things she says and does I don't know how she knows.
This unusual behavior continued for some time and then she started to tell us about OLD MARY who visits her and talks to her. I was concerned and contacted a good friend who is a psychic in the city. She did a phone reading without knowing any real details. She told us that the spirit of an old lady was with us and that our daughter was the vessel. She was using to make contact from her world to ours. She gave us some helpful tips on how to calm the situation and it worked for about 6 months. Lately though old Mary has come back more prominently in now 3 year old Tayla's life. My baby talks daily of visits and talks that they have. She describes her in detail and says she only sees her in 3 rooms of the 12 room house. Those rooms were the original house built over a century ago
She says she sees her both day and night. She says she is not scared of Mary but doesn't like it when Mary follows her. When asked what Mary says to her she replied she tells her stories she calls her gorgeous and says she is her good friend. She says mostly Mary just watches her. I asked Tayla to show Mary to me next time she visits as Tayla believes she goes home when she is not with her as yet I have not seen Mary.
I am wondering why this spirit is so strong and has chosen my baby and whether moving house or getting a house cleansing would make any difference. My husband now believes as do I that our house and daughter are haunted after other unexplained occurrences such as chairs moving by themselves in front of us, I would like to know what I can do. Is this normal for a child so young and mostly why my baby?
