If you think there may be a Spirit in your home, there probably is.
And while most of the time, this individual is more likely to be a deceased Loved One, such as your grandfather, than anyone else, you may still be wondering how to tell when you are being visited by someone from the Other Side.
Those in Spirit really aren’t all that far away, as all that separates us and them is a thin, permeable veil, and because of this, they can easily visit, stop by or stay for a while, if they like.
Think you might have a Spirit visitor in your house? There are many ways to tell when your home is sharing a space with a Spirit.
Here’s a few of them.
10 Ways to Tell a Spirit is in your Home
Those in Spirit can move things using the shift (change) of energy created by their presence in a space.
If you see things move, things are misplaced, you see cabinets, toys, windows and doors moved - untouched by physical hands - a Spirit may be responsible for this.
Changes in air pressure, such as a heaviness to a room, a sudden coldness or heat is a sign more energy and matter is has been added to a space, and if you don’t see something or someone come into your physical space, it’s likely something unseen has stepped into your spiritual space.
Those in Spirit use energy to operate, appear and move about in the Physical world, just as we use energy to operate in the physical world (eating, sleeping, drinking, exercising).
By manipulating energy, they can affect electrical objects to get our attention.
If lights are turning on and off in your home,
If your television is changing channels, turning on and off,
If you are receiving odd texts and phone calls from unknown numbers on your telephone,
these are all positive signs of a Spiritual influence.
Those in Spirit can make noises by opening and shutting doors, windows and cabinets, dropping objects by pushing them, or by moving their energy throughout the house, such as by pressing it down on the floor boards, to create the sound of walking or creaking.
Your cats, dogs or birds growl, or make noise at something, or their attention or drawn suddenly, or to a certain area of your home.
If an animal normally acts a certain way when a new person enters a room, then they do that certain thing, sans person, there’s a good chance you’ve got a Spirit who has just stepped in.
If a child has told you they see someone in the house, there is someone in the house.
Children usually have a keen ability to see and sense those in Spirit, as it’s something that we are born with and culturally conditioned out of, later on. Read more about a child’s ability to see Spirit here.
There are many ways to see those in Spirit, but seeing those in Spirit as a shadow is the most common way to see them. Learn more about this here.
Feeling Someone has Touched You
Same principle. Those in Spirit can touch you, run into you and come close to you, just as those with physical bodies can. You can sense their presence and I’ve written a lot about how to do this, check out these articles here and here.
Feeling Someone is Watching You
If you feel like someone is watching you, yet when you turn around, no one is behind you, there’s a good chance someone is watching you. Except, they may not have a physical body. Usually, it’s a little more intricate than your mind just playing tricks on you.
Hearing Whispering, Talking, Humming or Mumbling
If you are clairaudient, even unknowingly (up to this point, at least), you may hear whispers, talking, humming or mumbling.
Often, the muffled voices are the voice of Spirit, and may clairaudient hear those in Spirit as if listening while underwater, through a wall or off in the distance.
The voice of Spirit, when heard externally, often sounds far away, at first.
If you’ve experienced any one of these above situations, it’s likely there’s a Spirit in your home and if you’ve experienced more than one, the possibility simply increases from there.
Now that you’ve had a chance to review this list, you may now be wondering, what is the point of all of this?
And perhaps the more important question is, who would go to all of this trouble to be noticed by you?
The point and purpose of all this activity is to get your attention. Spirit, is pretty good at being invisible, so when they set the intention to be noticed, it’s a purposeful act (usually).
Most of the time, a Spirit in your house is not a random entity or someone/thing out to get you, it’s a Loved One, an Ancestor, a Guide or an Angel who wants to deliver a message to you.
And many times, that message is -
Hey, I’m here still. Just hoping you would notice.
Say hello next time, or if you are open to it, you can investigate into it further by seeking a medium or a paranormal team.
Want it to stop? Tell them so, by talking to your Spirit person, like a regular human, out loud. Usually, there’s no need for a special ritual, once an honest, face to face conversation is had.
