Hi Jc, and welcome. Can you tell us about the house? Age of the house, prior occupants (if any), recent major renovations, how long did you live there before the events started and then ended in 2020, history of the land it sits on, recent household additions (such as old furniture or antiques) and/or visitors, etc.?

You said you are the only one who's had experiences. Does that mean your wife has not heard, smelled, or seen any of the events you described? The candle smell I think would have lingered for a while. If she did smell it, did she do so on her own or only after you mentioned it?

Lastly I'm curious about your statement, "...I have tried to talk before to get something to happen, which really hasn't...." Please be more specific. Did you do this before your first events that ended in 2020 or after? Did you do it again in the recent past, before last night? The fact you talked to try to get something to happen makes me wonder if there was a specific spirit/entity you wanted to respond?

Welcome Jc. First off what you are experiencing are not uncommon in the paranormal world. I myself have no psysic gifts that I am aware but I have experienced the same things you mention. I am the one Debi is referring to who experiences apports. Debi has given you very good advice. Please be careful (just my opinion), not to encourage activity. You have a family to think about and these things can start out very harmless to get your attention and wonder but when you interact, it becomes an implied acceptance. There seems to be a systemic rule that these entries have to follow about getting involved with us. Now that’s not to say they all follow the rules but it seems to work that way. If you open the door to activity, you may get more than you want your family exposed to. It certainly sounds like you have something going on. I don’t know what to look for in the first two pics ( it wasn’t obvious to see). The ones that look like a humanoid man are very scary looking. It has an elfin look to it. Maybe an elemental or some other creature. One more thing, sometimes a new item brought into the household may have an attachment. Did you noticed the activity associated with something you brought into the house at the same time ? Just an idea.

We are here to be a sounding board and help if needed. Keep us updated.
Thank you, that makes sense.

Honestly nothing that I can think of. I really don't remember the first time I experienced anything. It was probably a while after too, once more things happened, that I thought of the paranormal route.

On the pictures, the first 2 in original post shows the room as normal, then the picture I got from my baby monitor with the figure looking like a man on the left side. The 2 pictures I posted in the reply are essentially the same, just zoomed in and the "man".

That pic of the humanoid thing is totally scary. Be careful you might have something you don’t want to interact with. Thanks for sharing.

Hi and thank you. I believe the house was built in 1974 with 2 previous owners. No deaths or anything that I know of. I don't know any property/land history, but welcome to advice on best way to research that.

Really nothing different in terms of furniture, guests, renovations.

I'm really not sure when the first occurrence was, like I mentioned in another reply things could have happened and it wasn't until more happened that I put 2 and 2 together. I just know from June 2020 when I saw the image of the "man" until last night I didn't experience anything.

My wife is one who prefers not to know anything going on. I previously told her one of the events and she kindly asked that I not bring anything up if it happens. So she is also not living her life thinking about these paranormal events like I am and have experienced.

All events have happened when I am alone so it's not like hey do you smell or hear that. I also don't bring it up to her, per her request.

On the candle smell, I agree it does linger but I can't tell you the last time we lit a candle in our house at all. I was last to go to bed last night, no candle smell. I went to the kitchen around 630 and smelled it, very quick and only lasted a few minutes. By the time my wife was in the kitchen it was gone.

So on my statement I more meant that I would ask, if you made that sound can you give me a sign of your presence. Not looking for a specific person. Such as last night after the window noise. I don't try and talk on a normal basis or prior to having experiences, it's been all driven by when something happens.

Let me know if that answers your questions.

Thank you. Nothing that has happened has harmed or scared anyone - as you both mentioned with the honey. I do welcome some activity, especially if it is a deceased relative. I am also the only one who has these experiences and doesn't bother me. If my kids woke up screaming scared overnight, that would be another issue. I don't want this to come out the wrong way, I have tried to talk before to get something to happen, which really hasn't, but I would like to have more happen to further prove what I know I have experienced.
Just to clarify, the putting up boundaries and prayer I described to you would not stop the interaction with a benevolent spirit or visiting relative, although it would ask them to follow your boundaries, whatever those might be. What it does do is put protection in your home from any negative spirit or entity, of which I have run into and can tell you are out there.

The concerns you will hear from our members are all about those bad things that many of us have encountered, and often times have had to deal with because of ignorance or denial on our own part. It's a a bit of "be careful what you ask for." If you are going to seek to interact, the very least you will want to do is put up some protection for yourself and family. It's a safer way to find your proof, JC.

All us here who have had dealings with the paranormal use protections. Anyone with experience in the field will tell you the same thing. We want you to be safe on your search and as a newbie to the field, we want to be sure you understand that bad things can and do happen if you don't know the right way to approach it. Please, if you have more questions on this, please ask. We're here to help.

Yes you did, thanks. Best place to research real estate/owners is through property tax records. They are in the public domain and should be accessible through whatever local government official/agency collects property taxes. Here in Ohio it's the county auditor. They should also be able to tell you who owned the land before it was zoned residential. If you have a local historical society, they might be able to provide anecdotal information on the land itself. Also might talk to any local neighbors who've lived there since before you bought the home. (My next door neighbors have lived in their home since 1982.)

Once you know who previously owned the home, you should be able to look them up on the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) to determine when (if) they died. If they still owned the house at the time of their deaths, that might be something to look into. With names and dates of death, you can look up obits in your local newspapers at the public library and possibly identify their survivors. Not advocating tracking down and calling some old dead guy's granddaughter and telling her he's haunting the home, but you could ask if they were aware of any paranormal activity in the home when Grandad lived there. (These processes work, I write military history and use them to find the families of deceased veterans. The SSDI is the researcher's best friend.)

Now that I have had a good look at your photos, I would strongly advise you to set up protections for your baby boy. If it is hanging around the crib, it's intentions may not be for the best. There can also be two different things interacting with you in your home. Or, as Debi said, it can be starting off benign, but if given sufficient attention, it can turn into something else entirely! You don't have to be religious to use the St. Michael prayer, and it is amazingly effective. I have had occasion to use it and can assure you that it works.

Hi JC010 and welcome to our 'little' family ;)

It sounds like what is going on appears to be quite benevolent at present, although some of the activity you are experiencing may appear to be a little frightening.

Let me discuss the images you captured first off as I am guessing this is the main concern for you.

The first thing to understand about nanny cams, especially those that work on Wifi, is that they can be hacked - very easily. The Wifi signal can also be prone to a number of visual phenomena where the streams can be crossed with another feed. This is why, as a paranormal investigator, I am very anti mobile phone use during investigations.

Looking at the way the image is presented where you capture the figure in the frame, it looks like an interpolated stream over your own captured stream that has produced a digital visual phenomenon. The main basis for this conclusion is the lines within the picture. It almost looks as though the capture is made up of two separate images (yours and another), overlayed, and the processing is trying to make sense of it. There are visible lines that clearly span across the entire capture you have posted, and are not retained to any particular area. This 'confusion' by the processing method can also explain why, in your capture, the room layout and angles of pictures hanging on the walls - which have not changed physically - look so out of place.

Another reason that I believe this is an interpolation, is the fact that the image captured appears to be framed. This is unusual for the capture of an entity. The only other paranormal explanation I may be able to offer, if indeed it is paranormal in origin, is that you may have captured some sort of portal and we are getting a glimpse of the 'other side'.

Portals are believed to be very powerful energy 'gateways' between other 'dimensions' and our plane. It could be suggested that, if this is indeed a portal we are seeing, the energy from this may have been powerful enough to distort the images that you see in your capture, after all, all Wifi or any recorded image is in itself an energy of some kind.

figure.jpg

It, in all honesty, does not look very nice and although I hate to bring in the 'D' word, it does look quite negative at first glance. I wanted to look at it better and actually determine if this was indeed a humanoid figure or just a case of pareidolia. I took some imaging software and removed the grey lines, before moving the image segments together closer:

assembled.jpg


Although a lot shorter than in the original image due to the removed areas, it does appear humanoid in origin. I can see hair, possibly a couple of little stubby horns, a nose, mouth, beard, a (pointy?) ear, an arm and shoulder, torso and leg. The more I look at this image, the less of a demonic figure I see, and more that of a satyr.

Satyrs are the Greek version of the Roman faun. They are commonly depicted as human from the torso up and goat below. They are known to be very knowledgeable, if not a little clumsy and mischievous. They have a high sex drive and are usually portrayed as such, commonly shown with an erection - and if you look at both images, this could tie in with what appears to be presented. The satyr is considered to be a male nature spirit - more commonly referred to as an elemental.

Elementals are not necessarily 'evil', although they can be either negative or positive towards the living. They are generally, as already mentioned, mischievous and clumsy. Other 'folk' that fall into the elemental line are fairies, pixies and goblins, to name but a few.

Going back to what I was saying about portals earlier, this may explain why you are experiencing activity one minute, then nothing the next. Entities, or maybe just one, are passing in and out of the location through a potential portal. The problem with portals is that they can let anything through that wants to come through. If there is indeed one on the property, you want to get it closed sooner rather than later.

If you know of anyone who is sensitive to Spiritual energies, or you can find a local medium (do your research and find out about their reputation and other work they have done previously), then ask them to come and walk around the home and see if they pick up on anything. Failing that, have a look for a local paranormal group and ask them to come in to see if they can pick up on anything. If they are any good, they may also be able to close any portal they may find for you or be able to put you in contact with someone who can.

At this point, I do not believe there is any concerning 'danger' to yourself or your family, but it would not hurt to protect yourself from any potential negative energies. As already mentioned, do not go seeking out any potential entities on the property - you could escalate any activity and things could become more frightening - especially if there is indeed a portal. As soon as you start to acknowledge any entity, you can become a 'beacon' that draws in further energies through it.

Keep us updated on any activity you experience.

Thank you very much. From the explanation in the first part of the response, do you see this as a normal or rare (not paranormal/spirit/etc.) occurrence with seeing the image of the "man" you described? Taking the part of you describing what it/he looks like, why do you think something like that would appear crossed with another feed? It would be one thing if the image was of another room or objects, but just odd that the image I captured, along with your description, is what appears. If completely normal, is their a way to visually re-create what happened? I am assuming no, but figured I would ask.

The portal explanation is interesting as I did find it odd that the image captured appeared to be framed. It's nothing I thought of or considered, but I guess the thought process is similar to some astronomical theories I follow such as multiple universes, string theory, etc.

I'm sure there is no scientific answer, but what would (at least in theory) cause an entity to come in and out of a portal. Are they free to come and go as they wish? Are there triggers I am unaware of causing an entity to come in/out?

Is there any explanation of these experiences being tied to myself. I am always alone when something happens, I'm the one who hears it, smells, see's it (as in the image).

Thanks everyone!

I've had the same thought as I've read your responses. Your children (age 2 & 3 I believe you said) may have witnessed similar events but are probably too young to understand they are out of the ordinary and/or verbally express their experiences. Your explanation earlier as to your wife's position relative to these events suggests she might be in denial. If that's the case, she could have had the experiences but refuses to admit/accept them.
