I’ve never been a believer of ghosts or spirits. Lately, I am beginning to think otherwise. My family and I moved into an older home that belonged to Andre’s family seven months ago. Three family members who used to live there passed away. Although they didn’t pass away in the home, weird things continue to happen.
About three months ago, one of the lights in the living room turned orange! One time when Andre left out of town, I was watching TV in the living room by myself. The volume went up by itself. The remote control was on the other side of the sofa. I thought I was sitting on the remote but I wasn’t. The kitchen lights flicker from time to time. The freezer ice has also fallen out of the freezer at times. Things we’re looking for seem to get lost and moved around in the house too.
In order to get rid of ghosts and spirits, people have told me to place sage around the house and light a white candle. Andre says not to do it so I haven’t. He thinks it’s his father watching over him. Andre lost his father when he was 11. I’m going to admit, it’s a little bit spooky. Whenever I’m alone in the house, I tend to stay in one of the bedrooms. Nothing has ever happened in there…so far anyway!
Do any of you belive in ghosts/spirits? Have you had any weird experiences like this?
Andre has talked about us going to a so-called haunted saloon in Cuchillo, New Mexico. Cuchillo is close to Silver City, NM. Other so-called haunted places in El Paso are: El Paso High, Concordia Cemetery and Monteleone’s Italian Restaurant (feel free to check out these posts in the April and June archives).
