Although not everyone believes in the paranormal, there are several individuals who will tell you that ghosts are more than just a legend or a tale in a scary movie. There are numerous paranormal teams dedicated to helping families who have hauntings occurring in their own homes.
Whether you believe you have a ghost lurking in your house or you know someone who has become a victim of paranormal activity, there are a few ways that you can determine if a home is haunted. Before you call in a team or seek assistance from a professional to explain those noises in the middle of the night, take these symptoms of hauntings into consideration.
Footsteps, banging noises and tapping
Footsteps and other loud banging noises are common in the event of a haunting. While many people might attribute it to a settling house or a change in temperature affecting the floorboards, not all sounds can be easily explained - especially when they're noisy and occur on a nightly basis.
Ghosts are thought to use the energy in their environments in order to manifest and cause chaos, meaning that electrical items may be prone to malfunctioning in the event of a haunting. Be mindful of lights that flicker on and off or televisions and radios that operate on their own.
It can be difficult to write off the probability of a haunting if you're regularly seeing shadow figures in your home. While you may not be seeing full-bodied apparitions on a routine basis, shadows can be enough to prove that there's an otherworldly entity sharing your living space.
Do you regularly smell perfume or cologne in rooms when no one is home? This may be one way that a spirit is attempting to communicate with you and make its presence known.
If you think that you may have an unwanted ghost in your home, speak to your psychic medium for assistance. A psychic reading might be able to put you in touch with this spirit. This will give you the opportunity to communicate your wishes for him or her to leave.
