Hi Everyone, I’m new here and was actually directed from a different sight to this one. I’m very happy to be here and had some crazy stuff happen to me and my family when my dad passed 12-15-07 with electrical stuff and all. He stayed with us for so long. But today I’m not here bc of that. I unfortunately recently lost my mom to Covid on 1-14-21 She was just 72 years young. I was her legal power of attorney and on 2-14-21 into the morning of 2-15-21...which was also her 1month anniversary of passing. Things were happening that I couldn’t see. Let me explain her apartment was empty. Her master bedroom and guest bedroom have NO ceiling lights and as I said I removed all furniture including lamps from this apartment. I saw one streak down the wall on my camera, and instantly thought ( in my head) ok you didn’t paint the wall. Then ( I said calm down you haven’t seen anything weird happening around here). So I immediately had retaken the picture again. The mark was gone so I thought, bc my eyes went right to the place where the mark was high on wall. Well the mark was lower and transparent white. But again I didn’t see it, so I continued to take pictures. I just want you all to know, had that mark still been there, I would have ran out of there no questions about it. I continued on taking pictures of the apartment. I also want you to know the ONLY REASON I WAS TAKING PICTURES WAS FOR MY SECURITY DEPOSIT BACK!
Well I didn’t know until around 2a.m when I looked at my pictures in her kitchen. I was like OMG ya I’m out of here, luckily I was on the phone with my friend and started sending her the pictures.
Well then I did some reading and talked to a few psychics and everything and everyone said to go back and try it again and call your mom back, talk to her. I of course was thinking, they are out of their minds..My birthday was February 24th and I kept joking (kinda serious) with my kids. Who wants to go to nana’s place with me. They all replied we love you but no way. They saw the pictures. To be honest, my mom always forgot my birthday and I took care of her for 27-28 years. She had mental health issues and other major health issues, but could always remember my brothers birthday. She would see him maybe 2-4 times a year, if she was lucky!!! He walked on water and I was a butthead and had to be strict with her as a caregiver, bc 28 years ago I was told if someone doesn’t take over she will probably pass in the next three years if she makes it that long. Well 28 years later Covid took her. So back to my story. No one would go with me. So I had to put on my BIG GIRL PANTIES, and go by myself. When I got there I yelled out from the front door. Mom I’m here, I know you didn’t think I was coming back, (poop) ya you know I said sh#%! I said Sh#%, I didn’t think I was coming back. It was dark except, kitchen livingroom and bathrooms. Had ceiling lights, but I only turned on hallway heading to bedrooms and bathrooms and the light over the stove was on. I didn’t feel her! I felt nothing. Kinda relieved in a sense, if that makes sense. Then after going into master bedroom and guest bedroom back and forth, calling her. Telling her she wasn’t suppose to leave me. She wasn’t suppose to leave me!!! My husband has Terminal Cancer and will be leaving soon. As God couldn’t leave one of them here for me to selfishly have. No he’s gonna take both. My heart is so broken and as I said I have three kids.
well then I asked her why she wasn’t showing her self to me, do you not have enough energy. Went out in the kitchen talked to my cousin for ten minutes and (she thought I was crazy for being there by myself) I went back to the bedrooms guest first. That when these little comet things started coming at the camera, like the first time and it got hazy in front of my camera like the first time. The only difference was I remembered the first time and now it’s the second time 10 days later. In my head I instantly said, your not by yourself anymore. I must have taken two hundred pictures and I also was so nervous I turned the picture screen around and was taking selfies, bc I was afraid of what could be behind me. Also I have a picture where someone appears in front of me. The psychics said there is way more than one person like several. I have pictures, I’ve also shared them on another site. But a very nice guy told me about this site and how everyone here is nice and helpful. I know what I saw, I know it was real. I didn’t even see any of it, unless it was caught in a picture, which this time I left the second time, left the keys to the apartment as I told the manager I would. So not once but twice it happened. No heat on, no electricity in these two rooms. Like I said, I just want to know what, why and who? If anyone can help, I will be glad to share photos.
Again Thank you for listening to me babble. I appreciate you and your time
Sincerely,
Traci-Rene’e

Hi Traci. First, thank you for sharing your story. I don't know if you are of any particular religious beliefs, as I normally answer from whatever belief system you have, but we'll just go with a spiritual answer to begin for you.

First, if it was your mom, if she had mental health issues, sometimes the soul force or "energy" of that soul may leave behind a bit of scattered energy. If you have no background in the paranormal, that may be confusing to you, but an "imprint", or residual energy, can be left behind. That may have been your orbs.

I want to point out a few things here for you. None of this energy can harm you. Scare you yes, harm you no. Another point to make is the more you look into it, research it, get involved in searching for it, the more active this energy may become.

We honestly don't always know what triggers a "haunting" or visitation. Is it real? Yes, your experiences are valid. You are not crazy. But the grief and obvious conflicting feelings over losing her will increase the problem if you continue to call her back to you. She is meant to cross over, not be called back into this world. The next world she enters is where she can find the healing she has always needed for her soul.

I am so very sorry for your loss, and for all you are going through with life right now. Covid has taken far too many of us older folks and left behind so much anguish. Once again, don't know your religious beliefs, but there is a prayer that seems to work for protection and blocking most activity that is used by just about all religions. It's the St. Michael's prayer, which you can find on the link I will leave here tonight. I was just about to head out, so I will leave you with that for the moment.

Welcome Traci. First off let me extend my sincere condolences at your loss. I agree with Debi and she has covered your situation well. Spending some time here reading and making friends may be a nice distraction when you have free time.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear about the difficult times you have had and are currently having. Life has a horrible way of testing our mettle at times and from your post, I can see that you come across as a strong individual, despite all that you are going through, and I commend you for that. Yes, it hurts, but it is our inner strength that gets us through all the difficult times and onto brighter pastures.

The 'what, why and who' is very difficult to give you any answers to through any forum. As a paranormal investigator, I can only surmise as to the things you have experienced purely based on the information you have provided. For any solid answers, a formal investigation would normally have to be conducted.

The main question I would like to ask at this point is what do you want from this? If you want to understand and know more, then there are things that you can do yourself to try and get some answers, but this may come at the cost of increased activity and, in the worst-case scenario, a possible attachment.

With over 25-years of experience in the field, the best advice I can give right now is as follows:

Do not presume anything. We all like to believe that a loved one has come forward to us in visitation, or back in 'residence' to a place that they have fond memories of or a close attachment to. However, this may not be the case and it may be something entirely different. Do not let your guard down until you can ascertain exactly what you are dealing with, especially with so much emotional turmoil going on in your life at present.

I find it interesting that you mention that a psychic suggests that there are way many more, as opposed to the one, entities being experienced during your visits. Refer to the advice above.........

As an investigator, I look for explainable, natural reasons for any claims made before I look any further. Please, do not take any offence to this - this is just how the field of paranormal investigation works. Once all logical explainations can be ruled out, then, and only then, can we look beyond this and at paranormal explainations.

For example, the orbs - are they orbs or just travelling dust particles refracting light? Or bugs? This is one of the most commonly mistaken claims by people, even some ghost hunters. It does not make the experience any less confusing or spectacular, but it could just be explained by something natural in origin. Where possible, orbs should always be captured on video as opposed to still imagery. Any noted anomaly with its shape, illuminance and movement patterns, that can only be deemed from a motion capture, can be used to analyse any potential origin.

I for one would certainly invite you to post any pictures you have for further analysis and for an opinion to be drawn against - but that is all it would be, an opinion. Nobody reputible in paranormal investigations could give you any definative answers purely from looking at pictures.

Thank you Debi for your kind words and prayer. I am Catholic, not practicing, and religion is being tried after losing my mom and my husband being so sick. As I said I have pictures and will post and explain. I know there are skeptics and everyone is welcome to their opinion. I experienced it not just once but twice. I honestly look forward to talking to you. You seem very nice, to stop and talk to me, while rushing out. Again I think I might have confused people by asking my questions!!! I heard and read orbs are round and can take shape. Mine leave or are marks. Then the ceiling had a violet hue to it from ceiling to half way down the wall. I will definitely post pictures and really do look forward to speaking and keeping contact with you. Again I can’t Thank you enough for reaching out with such kindness. Your new friend.

Hi Lynne, Thank you! I look forward to meeting such nice and kind people, as I have so far on this site. I look forward to sharing my pictures with everyone. Right now I live with a lot of heartache losing my mom, and more to come with my husband cancer ( we just started chemo again yesterday at Dana Farber in Boston) and my children’s heartache, as they are witnessing the biggest heartbreaking experiences kids have to face. Losing a parent. I honestly can’t thank you all for being so nice. I look forward to talking, listening and learning more from you all.
Sincerely your new friend
Traci-Rene’e
