    Some people seem to be plagued by a ghost that follows them around for years.

    Why is this?

    I usually think it could be a relative, but I’ve found it has more to do with the positive or negative energy one gives off that attracts spirits to them.

    I feel very fortunate to have family spirits around me. I also have some who just like my energy and stop by from time to time to see what’s going on. They’ll play with the lights by turning them on and off, just to let me know they are there.  Sometimes a door will open and close. Nothing creepy or weird about it, at least not in my house.

    Linda had the spirit of her best friend’s father visiting her regularly.

    “My friend, Susan, and I were inseparable growing up. When her father died suddenly from a ruptured brain aneurysm he would visit in spirit form regularly at my house.”

    Susan lived with her mother, but she didn’t have the same experiences at home as she did at Linda’s house.

    Linda’s parents didn’t like the lights, television, computers, microwave, etc. turning on and off at odd hours of the day and night. They consults ghost hunters to assist them in solving their problem.

    Yes, it was Susan’s father. They never did figure out why he would be at their house rather than their own.

    Linda’s family moved several times, but Susan’s father followed them each time.

    When Linda’s father got a promotion to move to another state, he thought this would sever the tie, his daughter had with Susan and her father, but it didn’t.

    They consulted a psychic to find out what was going on with Linda’s connection to Susan’s father.

    All the polite things were discussed between the psychic and Susan’s father. After that was exhausted and the psychic pressed him for an explanation, he admitted he was in love with Linda’s mother.

    This didn’t set well with Linda’s parents. They were both kind to Susan and her father, but Linda’s mother never encouraged him in any way.

    The psychic encouraged him to move on and leave Linda and her parents alone.

    This worked out well for many years, until Linda went to college. There he was again, messing with electronic devices.

    Linda lost touch with Susan after they moved out-of-state and found out her father’s love for Linda’s mother.

    It seemed he continued to play out his fantasy of Linda, not Susan being his daughter. It may have been the confusion from his brain aneurysm.

    Linda wanted to be kind to the confused ghost, but she also didn’t want to encourage him. She consulted a psychic to get him to move on. This worked for several years until she was expecting her first child.

    Linda was afraid that Susan’s father’s spirit would go into her unborn child.

    Linda’s husband thought she was crazy, but went along with his wife’s wishes. They had the house blessed and the unborn child blessed. Linda wanted to have a barrier between her family and that of Susan’s father’s spirit.

    The birth of Linda’s son, was a spiritual experience.

    Priests were present as was a psychic and family members. They were to be a barrier against Susan’s father’s spirit and Linda’s son.

    Linda’s fears were proved accurate when the lights flickered in the delivery room. Doors rattled. The prayer group held fast to their task of keeping the unwanted spirit at bay. Many were pushed, hit and kicked, but they continued praying.

    When they heard Linda’s son crying, they didn’t stop praying.

    “My mother and father heard a loud pop, so did the psychic,” Linda said. “Then they saw a white light that almost blinded them. As they squinted, they saw the silhouette of a man walk into the light.”

    Susan’s father finally gave up and went into the light.

    Linda and her new family have had no paranormal experiences in their home. She is now the proud mother of three healthy sons.

    It’s always nice to have a happy ending to a paranormal experience and it’s fortunate for Linda that it didn’t pass on to another generation.
