Haunting ResidenceThe apartment I lived in for two years previous to my present residence had several experiences I could not explain.
The tv would turn on and off on its own.
I put a potholder back on its hook on back wall behind counter. I walked away and then heard something behind me. I turned around to see the potholder on the floor -3 feet away from where I'ld hung it -not below the hook on the counter but away cleared the counter onto the floor. So I picked it up and rehung. Turned around to continue -heard something behind me again -turned around to see the potholder on the floor again same place. Went back picked it up again and rehung. This time I just stood there. The potholder lifted off the hook and like it was being carried moved 3 feet through the air and dropped to the floor same place. I couldn't believe what I just saw -trying to make sense of it. I couldn't -so I said you win and walked away leaving it on the floor. The next day I rehung -it never did it again.
Coming home from work I could not get into my apartment. The deadbolt from the inside was locked. There was no one inside. I had to call the fire department to get in. They had to use the ladder and break a window to get in. They said that the deadbolt was activated from the inside all the way up over and down and that someone had to have done it. They searched and found no one. They said it was the craziest thing they've ever come across and asked me if I had a ghost.
One night watching tv in the living room -the tv shut off. So I got up to use the bathroom and it turned back on again. I felt like there was someone in the room with me. For the hell of it I grabbed a candle and lit it. I asked out loud if there was someone else here with me to please affect the flame in a way I would be sure to know that I was not alone. The flame turned blue and sizzled and sparked for much longer then any coincidence and beyond a doubt I knew I wasn't alone. And was suprisingly unafraid.
