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 for responding titch2k6 and for your kind words! I think I shouldn’t have written the words what, where or why? I understand you being a little skeptic or totally skeptic. I am not asking if this happened, I know what happened. I know it’s not dust. I know it wasn’t my camera. I absolutely will show you my pictures and everyone. I never knew anything about orbs or Rods. I did lose my dad and 9 days after we lost him electrical things started happening at my house and my brothers. For example, on December 15th 2007 he was 60 years old. We lost dad. December 23rd we lost power, early morning we got power on.(don’t know exactly what time but between 2-3:30 a.m and my mom slept over to be with me). She and I slept on the couch, I was a mess crying and fell asleep and she was comforting me. Well lights camera back on, she woke me and I had to go to the bathroom. I got up walked into my kitchen which I had to do to get to my bathroom. It felt like someone made me look at my electronic clock on stove, I looked and screamed. Yes screamed, my mom cane running and said it’s ok, your ok. I said no! I pointed at the clock and my mom said it’s not 11:17 it’s morning. ( if electricity come back on a device electric device it should come back on as 12:00 or 00:00) not 11:17. I looked at her and said that’s what time they pronounced dad passed. Then from then on, all electrical things kept happening. At my house and my brothers. My brother lost over 50 light bulbs. He is an electrician. It got to a point that my it scared my kids and seemed like it was never going to stop. My kids would start yelling at my dad PAPA your scaring us. He would stop once that was said. My dogs were standing at protective stance growling with both of their butts on my knees. Nothing there, that I could see. So I know paranormal exists. See I know for sure, that my pictures are real, I have no gain here! There was nothing in the apartment nothing but a unplugged microwave and a trash can and brooms and vacuums. That was it. There was no lights in the 2 bedrooms. No heat, no bugs (gross) nothing to stir up anything and the apartment was done on February 11th. Cleaning wise! My phone I wipe down with an alcohol swab bc we can’t take any chances with my husband having terminal cancer with Covid, but I took a bunch of pictures for security deposit back on the 14th, into the morning of the 15th. It was one month mom had passed on the 14th. I had trouble honestly saying goodbye to her apartment, bc honestly in my head I was trying to say she was in the hospital. Having to say goodbye to the apartment was saying good to my mom all over again. My mom went into the Hospital December 22nd by ambulance. She had tested Covid positive and admitted. On the morning of December 27th, at 7:30a.m I was called to be told mom had to go on a ventilator. I said I will be right there, they said no one is allowed in. I said your not telling me, either you get her on FaceTime or I’m coming in before you put her on ventilator. They let us FaceTime. I was crying, my husband told mom to fight with everything she has. She swore she would and was trying. Of course my mom was concerned if I got everyone’s Christmas gifts. My family and my brothers. I assured her I had everyone’s gifts and that I would wrap them, but no one will get them till she came home to us, and that we had tons here for her. So I think if she came back and from what I’ve been reading, is we had the ventilator pulled on the 14th of January, she was pronounced within minutes like 6-8 to be exact. I am now questioning if she was already gone. But that’s something I can share later. So she was probably not finished here, trying to get back into her shell. Seeing me cry and that my brother finally was around and at the hospital with me. She probably went back to her apartment due to not wanting to believe she passed without saying goodbye and that her belongings were at her house. What ever family members or angels probably had to bring her to her place to get her to go to the light, but needed to prove to her she was no longer here with us.
after looking at my pictures at 2:00a.m and seeing some weird stuff, I ran out of there. With no intention of going back. I was all set!!! It’s then I started looking up this stuff, got in touch with a psychic and she told me about orbs and rods. So I started looking more and more and reading more and more. I decided after reading, bc it said what I experienced was paranormal and if I could go back call her. So yes I couldn’t get anyone to go with me, bc I showed them the pictures. Then I decided if I were to bring anyone with me, she might not come. So the 25th the day after my birthday I went back. I felt nothing. I kept calling her and egging her on to come to me, show me your here, asking do you not have enough energy to come see me. It took a good 45 minutes till I finally knew I wasn’t alone anymore. Hot and cold, the hairs on the back of my neck were standing. I knew!!!!! But I couldn’t see anything...nothing and to be honest, I was like WHY did you want to come back??? Thinking to myself!!! I had to keep praying and telling myself it’s my mom and dad possibly and they wouldn’t hurt me. Well I must have snapped a million pictures and got some weird white marks, and a got a picture of someone trying to show themselves to me!!! I showed two psychics and they said I don’t have one person I have several. I don’t know if it’s my mom or dad or family. I have not been back, twice was enough to say someone or something is trying to get my attention. That is without no doubt! No dust, no anything else! It was definitely paranormal, which I have been told I have the ability bc I’m so open minded. ( yes open minded to spirits and ghosts) but this stuff was something I never knew about, but I guess being open minded, means your open to all of the possibilities of belief. I will definitely post pictures and explain we’re I was and what rooms. Like I said I’m a 52 year old woman and I just wanted to talk to people who have experienced the same and believe. I also want to say, something else. My husband had a dr’s appointment 3 hours after my mom passed, and bc of Covid we could bring him in, but had to wait in the car. (My daughter brought him) and we would do a three way call of appointment bc like I said I just lost mom 3 hours ago!

Welcome to PNF, Traci-Rene! I am so sorry for your loss, and the grief that it all entails. I have to agree with others here about the possibility of "extra" visitors in your scenario. I lost a very beloved cat two years ago, and was overjoyed when she came back to visit. Unfortunately she must have been followed by other, unwanted entities who sensed my grief and exploited it. I had to work hard at clearing my space, and it took a long time. Please make yourself at home and we will answer any concerns the best we can!

Exactly and thank you for adding that advice to the discussion. I was going to come back today and add in several points but you have already covered it very well. :)
Thank you all, All I’m saying is after what I’ve seen and couldn’t see I should say but got in my pictures, was not normal, and very unexpected. Not once but twice. I look forward to showing you all the pictures slowly, as I am still taking this all in myself. I appreciate you all and your time
Sincerely,
Traci-Rene’e

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

Traci, there is a 1,000 character limit per post if that helps you gauge it.

Also, please understand that Titch has 25 years of experience and I have over 50. (Yes, I'm that old.) With the others here who have been involved in the paranormal for years as well, we are simply offering you knowledge of the paranormal that has been gleaned over time and a lot of study. No one is saying you did not have experiences or catch things in pictures. But we take each thing and look for any and all mundane explanations first before naming it paranormal. That's simply the way things work in the paranormal field. In fact the electrical stuff could even be something called SLIder activity.

We are not doubting what you experienced. I think every member here has had a paranormal experience. You came here looking for answers, and although we can't give you definitive ones, we may well be able to help you understand what may have occurred. Some answers may be paranormal, some may not. You have to be open minded to look at all the possible answers.
