Childish Ghost

The Childish Ghost by A Kasady

The ghost team was contacted by a couple who claimed to be suffering at the hands of a poltergeist in their own home. The home, based in the midlands, England, had supposedly been showing signs of a haunting as soon as they had moved in.

Some of the activity had included items going missing, noises in the night, doors slamming shut by themselves and, the one thing that interested the team greatly, what looked to be ectoplasm had appeared on the skirting boards in some of the rooms.

First thing the team had to do was research the history of the property. As it a residential house not much could be found out about it but we did manage to speak to the previous property owners who claimed that none of this had happened whilst they had been living at the property. However the fact that they moved out a year after purchasing the property tells us that they knew more than they were letting on. Not much we could do about it though.

On first opinion of the house was one of calm with no strange atmosphere whatsoever. Beginning by investigating some of the rooms of the house we found nothing too out of the ordinary. One of the rooms, the spare bedroom, showed on the temperature meter as slightly colder than the rest of the house, which was unusual but not unheard of in some of the other locations we had investigated.

As we brought Annabel in to do a reading of the property we heard a small bump from one of the rooms upstairs. Quickly running up there we found one of the children’s toys had mysteriously fallen from a shelf. Annabel soon came into contact with the energies of a spirit.

Calling out we were surprised to hear what appeared to be a slight scratching coming from the skirting board. As soon as the team heard it, it disappeared. Further call outs gained no new activity, so we allowed Annabel to proceed with her contact.

Annabel claimed that she felt the energies of a short man, no bigger than five feet tall, in his mid thirties in the room with us. He didn’t seem a malicious spirit but Annabel could tell there was some form of Autism that this man was suffering from. He died when he accidentally fell out of his bedroom window, which was the room we happened to be in. This man had the intelligence of a someone much younger than himself, and his spirit had found the enjoyment of watching the couple’s children at play.

I asked Annabel if she could get the ghost to visit us later as I wanted to focus our attention on the children’s playroom. Annabel claimed the spirit of the man had agreed to stay with us. Excitedly we began to set up our equipment in this bedroom and waited for the spirit to present himself to us.

For the first couple of hours we got very little in the way of paranormal activity; a few bumps and clicks but no hard evidence. We began to get a little downbeat until one of the team claimed that they had been touched on the hip.

Annabel immediately told us that the ghost, who had now told her his name was ‘George’, was with us. We asked George to start playing in the room for us, and what we got back was a little bit creepy. Emma, one of the team, claimed that she had just heard a small groan from right next to her. Katherine investigated the area with the temperature reader, and in that one spot next to Emma the temperature read a whole degree less than anywhere else in the room.

We thanked the ghost and asked for more activity, once again one of the other members of the team told us that they had just felt a small tug around their hip/leg area. Annabel claimed that this was indeed George playing around and that, in his childlike state of mind, was laughing at making us all jump!

The ghost of George continued with his games on touching, making small, soft bumps and whispering noises in peoples ears, but we wanted more, so we asked ghost if he could throw one of the children of the house’ toys at us. We got nothing in return. With the night wearing on I decided to call it a day. Annabel wanted to help George move on and this was something she preferred to do alone.

As we were leaving the room we heard a small thump against one of the walls, turning we found a small cuddly toy on the ground. Knowing that this could only be the work of the ghost, we re-entered and asked him to do the same again. Annabel asked if George wanted us to go, he didn’t, which got some the female members of the team aahing. I got Annabel to tell him that we wouldn’t leave if he would throw another cuddly toy.

HEY PRESTO! We heard another small bump from another corner of the room. Once again a toy was lying on the ground. As we investigated this certain act we heard repeated bumps from the area of the toy.

We all agreed that as dawn approached it was time for us to leave the house and move on. Annabel stayed to help the spirit to the other side, which a lot of us questioned whether he would actually want to go. But as Ann left the house with a big smile on her face and the mother of the household giving her a hug goodbye, we knew that Annabel had been successful in helping George move on.

Dr. Katherine Copeland, although a cynic, agreed that some of the activity that had taken place had been extremely interesting. She was interested especially in the stories of supposed ectoplasm, and was a little disappointed to have left without any proof.

Me? I felt it was an interesting night, and the fact that toys were thrown when we asked for them, well, fascinating. All in all, a good nights work for the team.

In many cases, human psychology plays a major role in ghost sightings. In chilling situations where ghosts are associated with a natural animal response may make the hair rise which could be mistaken for a chill. Illusions can be created by one by seeing an eerie figure. According to a poll conducted in 2005 by the Gallup Organization, about 32% of Americans believe in the existence of ghosts. Such a definition always makes it difficult to explain about the ghosts that tend to answer questions and those which foretell the future etc. Ghosts are often associated with haunting, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "the more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of steps and voices, and various odours. This definition is used commonly among all! There have been several doubts regarding the existence of the ghost and disputes too whether ghosts are just imaginations or part of objective existence.
