Sometimes quiet ones are the worst.

Little bumps and whooshes are the haunting moving about, making its next plans.

Crashes and howls are announcements it is there.

What does it want?

9) Items Disappearing

Nothing gives one more consternation.

You know you left your electric bill on the kitchen table and when you come back from work it’s gone.

Things disappear when the whole family is out of the house.

These disappearances put you face-to-face with the unknown, with forces that are just beyond you.

If keys, clothes, and toys can disappear, what may be next?

8) Animals Acting Strange

Is your dog seeing a shade, ghost, spirit?

Is she or he hearing it?

Or do they just have a very good intuitions?

If you’re not sure you may need to call a California Psychic.

Whether your dog or cat or bunny is scared or excited or agitated, if you witness this along with other odd behavior, you may be experiencing a haunting.

7) Someone is Watching You

A presence behind you.

It’s perched on the wall.

A roundish shape.

Or perhaps it’s focused more like a beam.

It follows you as you move.

Maybe it doesn’t mean you any harm.

It’s just curious…


6) Apparitions

Your home is definitely haunted when you see frightening sights.

Faint human forms or little silhouettes that seem to be floating.

Dark or hard-to-distinguish blotches or forms.

You’re going to have to take action if you see these.

5) Visible Signs

In some cases, the things that are haunting you seem to be angry.

They may be demons or ghosts of witches.

In a rage, they may scrawl graffiti in your home.

They might leave little amulets or other ominous items.

There is no way to not feel chills of fear at the sight of such a thing. 

4) Actual Contact

It isn’t unheard of for people to be physically touched by spirits.

Sometimes these spirits from the other dimension can even punch, kick, scratch, and bite people.

Some experts believe that visitors from the spirit realm can’t always control their movements.

Or perhaps they can’t control their grief at no longer living among us.

3) Hot or Cold Zones

Energies from ghosts or spirits can create very odd spots in rooms that are either very hot or very cold.

It’s one of the things that household pets notice.

These spots may not seem like much, but you ignore them at your peril.

2) Faint Sounds

Little whimpers, whines, distant noises, can all be very clear signs of haunting.

Some of this is leakage from the underworld.

Some of it may be efforts to communicate.
