    Everything I used to see and hear went away when I wasn’t stressed anymore but I might be stressed again even though I don’t know what I’m stressed about.

    it started at work when I’m by myself in the office. The lights will turn on and the shredder will turn on. At home I heard it twice at different times the door opens. I don’t hear it closed though and still not sure which door the sound came from. At my friend’s house I saw something walk by in the living room but when I went to check nobody was there. I heard something touching the ziplock bag the cookies I baked for my friend one night. Not sure if it stress making my mind play tricks on me.

    Hi Annie, and welcome to the forum. Stress can most certainly cause the mind to play tricks, no doubt on that. We here at the forum always look to rule out all other causes before naming something paranormal.

    Having said that, there is something that is sometimes connected to high stress people that does fall in the paranormal range. It's called being a SLIder. Several of the things you describe may be related to this. I am a SLIder myself, and when my stress levels go up, I tend to have an affect on lights, mechanical things (like shredders) and have strange things happen around me.

    It's thought to be caused by our own psychic energy going into a bit of chaos and hitting electrical/mechanical items, much as a poltergeist energy is described but on a lesser scale. There are several articles here about SLIder activity. I'll see what links I can find for you to read a bit about it.

    Welcome to the forum.
    You may have an ability to see and hear spirits anyway when they are around. The stress effects could be in addition to this. We are all different and sometimes you get something different in the pick & mix.
    I seem to be able to sense trees, which may seem to be one of the more useless superpowers out there, but at least I can walk in a forest in the pitch dark without walking into one. If only I had a good sense of direction to go with that.

    Hi Annie. Thanks for sharing your experience. Reading about other peoples accounts may help you too. Sometimes just knowing you are not alone decreases stress.

    My sense of direction is the worse.

    Yesterday I heard something again at work but I just told myself it’s just my imagination.

    I wouldn't worry too much unless it is quite a major event. But 'tis the season for some unusual visitors.

    The more you see and experience the less effect it has on you.
    Yesterday I saw an orb pass horizontally from the bathroom door to the kids door, and today my partner saw ghost cat again, followed by a smell of acrid burning we couldn't explain (as it was raining heavily and was in a corner away from windows), followed by us having a big argument over nothing. Bit of a negative one that, and should have realised.

    Try raising the vibrations in that area. I’d get out the spray cleaner and move around anything in that corner. Stale space seems to create issues. Just a thought incase this is the issue.
