House Clearing – Ghost Moving Objects

haunting ghost moving objects

Think ghosts aren’t real? A real estate agent who owns both sides of a semi-detached house contacted us because she couldn’t keep her tenants. They would move in and a few weeks later, would move out because of ghostly activity. They’d claim there was a ghost moving objects!

She had put a lot of work into the place — refinishing the floors, expensive faucets. The house wasn’t the problem. The problem was that things moved — on their own. Ashtrays would slide across the table, and the bathtub taps would turn on full blast by themselves. Was there a ghost moving objects?

Now most spirits, or as some people refer to them – ghosts, don’t manipulate objects. Sometimes this happens when a spirit wants to get your attention to say hi. For example, a family member in spirit may make a photograph fall off a shelf, manipulate electrical appliances (like a radio or TV), or put pennies or dimes in odd spots for you to find.

Another reason that things move is that the spirit wants to get your attention to make you feel uncomfortable. It’s one of the ways they can communicate that they aren’t happy.

Sometimes it’s because things are changing in the premises. For example, spirit activity might become more present because renovations are being done. The spirit may not like “their home” being changed.

Other times, spirit activity happens because they don’t like anyone else to live in the house but them. This is the case of the house with the real estate agent, and can happen in other instances of a ghost moving objects.

When my house clearing partner and I arrived, we immediately tuned into a middle-aged male spirit. This person had been an alcoholic and had died when people were still in the war. He was a mischievous spirit who liked spooking people.

On the third step walking into the house, we psychically smelled vomit. It seems — from what we picked up energetically — that this man would often sit on the stair which would afford him a view of the street through the front door window. As he spent time there, he had left an energetic imprint.

We started to work through all the rooms, clearing old energy imprints, lifting dense and heavy energy to lighten the space, and talking to the spirit as we worked.

Each time we cleared a room, the spirit would run somewhere else and hide. He knew what we were doing and didn’t want to talk to us. He didn’t want to leave the house.

It took the two of us to finally “corner” him and work with him to get him to cross. He had some unresolved issues and needed some help to find peace before he was ready to go into The Light.

Sometimes spirits or ghosts are sad, or angry, or unable to let go of certain issues. It makes them attached to a place or to a person so that they don’t want to leave. A ghost moving objects generally indicates they are expressing that emotion.

In cases like this one, we work with the spirit to resolve issues. Think of it like psychotherapy for spirits or ghosts.

Since that time, we’ve heard from the real estate agent that there is no disturbance in the place and the taps are now quiet. In fact, she herself has moved in and is quite enjoying the place.

    I had a really strange thing happen yesterday… that’s what has brought me to do some research and how I ended up on your site…

    I was home all day yesterday working. Around 10pm I wanted to go out to buy some cigarettes and that’s when I noticed my keys were missing.

    I searched high and low. I searched all of my pockets, purses, I moved furniture around. I took everything off the couch (blanket, remotes, a pillow) looked in all the crevices of the couch, I moved the couch. I shook out the blanket, then folded it and put it on the arm of the couch. I opened the lazyboy parts of the couch to look under the couch. Nothing.

    I searched for two hours. I called the landlord. I even asked my brother to stop by after his night shift to drop off the one spare he has so I could leave for work today.

    I woke up around 9am thinking my brother forgot to come by (he said he’d wake me so I could lock the door after he left) and when I came into the living room, the whole key set I’d been looking for was sitting right smack in the middle of the couch, splayed out, as if it had been there the whole time.

    (I called my brother right away thinking he’d come buy and ended up finding them, but he said he had no idea what I was talking about and that he did leave his spare set in my kitchen, and didn’t wake me because he used an old trick they use at work – he works in security – to make sure my door was locked when he left)

    I misplace my keys all the time, but always find them within a few minutes, and when I do, I always remember I’d put them there.

    I believe in this type of thing and have had some psychic encounters in my life before, but one of the reasons why I’ve lived in my current apartment for so long is that I’ve never felt any sort of presence or activity here, and I still don’t…

    I really don’t understand and don’t know what to make of it… they were definitely not there yesterday.

    I’ve had one other thing very similar to this happen when I was very young, but even that wasn’t this extreme.

    Any thoughts?

  • admin June 28, 2011, 2:42 am

    Sounds like the keys may have apported. Apport means that an object appears or disappears by paranormal means. Some people say this is mischievous spirit activity, but from my experience it can also be a spirit trying to help you out. It’s apparent that someone was trying to get your attention. They may have been trying to get you to avoid a potentially negative situation by delaying you leaving for work. I have had a similar experience with keys as well where they showed up in a pile of folded laundry. You don’t have to have spirit activity in the house for this to happen. It may just be a one off.

  • Celia July 25, 2013, 7:02 am

    I’m visiting my sis in law for 2 weeks. Its a very old house, now split in 2. They are busy renovating the other side. We are home alone with our kids. Kids toys are moving around, giant teddy bears are moving around. Hearing voices, walking etc. As soon as you step into the house you fell depressed. An extreme sadness. My sis in law can see spirits, I feel them. This time she can’t see them but also only hear them. We are freaking out! Too scared to go to the room. And some spots in the house are extremely cold and we get cold shivers! Its extreme and getting worse by day!

  • anita October 4, 2013, 6:45 pm

    I took a video on my wall and there was balls flying fast on the wall w have been finding strange stuff happening in our house could that be a spirit

  • admin October 8, 2013, 6:11 am

    Yes it could be a spirit. Try to see if there are any reasons that make sense outside of spirit activity first for these things happening. It’s just a good rule of thumb.

  • hannah May 20, 2014, 5:01 pm

    Ive been in my place a year now and ive had dvds move, things have been thrown at me and my partner. Hes had his pj bottoms tugged at like something is trying to get his attention. Ive had a feeling something is watching me whilst im in the bathroom. Its all very spooky.

  • susan November 17, 2014, 6:56 am

    I am concerned about some things happening lately in my 14 year olds room. So far, he has told me the following: albums in the cover were moved from the shelf above his headboard to right in the middle of his bed, placed perfectly, not like they fell but were placed there, the window wasnt open and i think if they slipped or something, they’d be askew, not perfect…another one is while he was brushing his teeth, he heard a noise in his room, again, an album was out of its place on top of the dresser and laying face up in front of the dresser on the floor, it was under other albums, another…(this just happened an hour ago) he had external speakers hooked up to his record player, while playing, the record just stopped. He checked all the connections and they were fine. He unhooked the speakers, turned on the player and it works, when he hooked up the speakers to his ipod to check them, they made a horrible sound like screeching. Now i know that could be electrical, but all these things seem connected to his music.
    We purchase used albums, and i am wondering if energy is latched onto these used items?
    He used to tell me he felt a heaviness in the hallway outside his room, he was about eight or nine then, he was afraid to go through the hall without a light on and we noticed at certain times, the dog would sit there as well and not go from one end to the other,the dog would literally sit and cry for someone to come walk with him through the hall.
    I researched a little and ended up smudging the whole house. Everything seemed lighter, even i noticed a difference in the air. Well thats back and just last night i heard the dog crying and sure enough, he was at the far end of the hallway. He would not come to be as i stood at the other end in plain sight. I had to walk to him, pet his head and then he followed me through the hall.
    Our house is from the 1950s, has been renovated several times, added on to, etc, nothing bad has ever happened, just weird stuff in addition to what ive mentioned.
    Would smudging do the trick again? Is that something you have to do repeatedly?
    Any help would be appreciated.

  • christina gough November 26, 2014, 12:15 pm

    This happened to me. They disappeared for 2 weeks, got the whole bunch replaced and then they appeared on the edge of my handbag 2 weeks later. This isn’t normal. But everyone else starts to think you might not be…very strange and weird!!

  • Brittney December 4, 2014, 1:37 am

    Last night I was skyping with my boyfriend. My closet was open and he asked if my dog was in there. Apparently, he had seen the clothes wiggling then the shirts separated and then went back together. My dog wasn’t in my room and she’s also too small to reach my shirts. I was very freaked out. Then the curtains had done the same thing. I was hoping it was due to whoever moved the shirts leaving. My curtains are behind my bed and before I went to sleep I closed them, pulled them straight and tucked them tightly behind my bed. When I woke up they were separated about 8 inches. My house is 15 years old, but we’re the only family who’s ever lived in it. Ever since I was little I felt something strange in my room. I read ghosts like messy rooms and I tend to be a messy person. I’ve had several episodes of sleep paralysis, but I haven’t had any lately. I’m going through big changes in my life. I’m in a serious relationship and I’m moving to a different state. Do you think it’s a nice ghost, do you think it’s jealous? I get frightened easily and I’d really like some answers

  • Selina December 9, 2014, 2:36 am

    Hi Brittney,

    Sounds like you have a spirit who is purposely trying to let you know they are there. I don’t think it’s harmful. I have never heard that ghosts (spirits) are attracted to messy rooms. If so, there would be a lot of people who have lots of ghosts in their cluttered houses – and there isn’t. I’ve done many house clearings and some houses are messy, while others are very neat. Don’t scare yourself!

    If you want, you can try telling this spirit that you don’t like it moving things and that you would like it to stop. You can also ask for your Spirit Guides and Angels to help. You could ask that if there is a message for you that you receive it in a way that is clear, helpful and won’t make you frightened.

    All the best with your move!

  • Jacqui January 21, 2015, 6:04 pm

    Recently, I returned home from a day out to find a book that usually lives on a shelf, laying face-up on the side of the lounge, similar to where it would be situated if you read it, closed it whilst seated on the lounge. Generally I would think if I had slammed the front door, it may have fallen off the shelf, and onto a side table, knocking off a small bottle (which is usually located on the left side of the book) and hitting an stereo system or the floor. As I live by myself, and had no windows or doors open, this was strange. The book was called ‘find it in everything’ a collaboration of photographs of hearts that were hound in everyday life. Being single, I thought this was perhaps significant. Yet today, approx three weeks after this incident I am house sitting a close friends house and cam home to find a recipe book which usually resides on a display shelf on too of a fridge, around 2 metres away from the fridge on the floor. Again, no one was in the house, nor were there doors or windows open. No breeze, no animals, nothing. I’m hoping you may be able to tell me if this is something significant. Or purely a coincidence. It just seems rather strange that this has happened twice in a matter of weeks. Any light you could shed would be appreciated.



  • Selina January 22, 2015, 3:14 am

    Hi Jacqui,

    Nothing is just coincidence. Sounds like someone is trying to get a message to you! Feels like you may be in the very beginning of a shift. I think the message is two fold. One is that there is a “recipe for love” that may be starting to manifest in the energy but not yet in the material world. Second is that it’s suggested for you to open your heart and see if you can find something to love about everything.

    I would take it as a hopeful message.

    Thanks for sharing and please keep us updated!

  • Stacy March 3, 2015, 3:48 am

    My husband and I bought a 1890’s Victorian back in 1990. We’ve been living here ever since without any problems until recently. We renovated our bathroom and kitchen and now we are experiences some very strange things. Some of my make-up is being moved to my top left drawer of my make-up table and my husband’s brick-back was found balanced on top of our flat-screened television in our bedroom. Our son’s photograph, on the mantle in the living room, was moved to where it faced the wall. Things turn up missing all of the time, now. I, sometimes, feel as if I’m being watched, too. I blamed him, at first. I thought he was trying to make me feel like I was going crazy, but he continued to swear he hasn’t touched any of them. What should we do?

  • Selina March 3, 2015, 5:15 am

    Hi Stacy,

    Thanks for sharing what’s going on in your house. Sometimes when things are changed in a house, such as renovations, a spirit that may have been quiet makes itself known. Sometimes they are reacting to the changes as they may not like it.

    Try speaking to this spirit yourself first. It doesn’t matter that you can’t perceive them. Let’s try this first to see if it will help. You can say out loud (or in your head if it makes you feel better):

    “We know that you are here and that you have been moving objects around in the house. We are trying to make this a loving home. When you move things it doesn’t help us do this. You had your time on this earth plane and now it’s time for us to live our lives here. We would like you to find your peace and move into the light where your true Home is now. Thank you for being here, but now it’s time for you to go.”

    After this, you can ask for Archangel Michael to please come and assist this spirit into the light and don’t forget to say thank you.

    Hopefully this may work. If not, then you’ll need to have someone like me – a medium who does house clearings – come in and cross the spirit over. Sometimes they are a little stubborn or they want to communicate something before they will go into the light.

    Hope this helps you Stacy!

  • Lauri March 21, 2015, 3:11 am

    I came home yesterday to find that my razor and eye lashes were in my sink. I am the only one who lives at my house. I have had keys go missing and I often feel like someone is standing behind me. My house has a urine smell that comes and goes. I just got new carpet and have no pets. I also have paintings that hang of balance. How do I do a cleanse?

  • Selina March 24, 2015, 4:29 am

    Hi Lauri,

    Sounds like you have a spirit in the house that hasn’t crossed. You’ll need a house clearing. No amount of saging or smudging is going to cross a spirit. That just lifts up the energy and makes it feel lighter.

    Not sure where you live, but you’ll probably need a medium to help. You can always try to ask Archangel Michael to help first and see if it stops. Otherwise, you’ll need someone to clear your house for you.

    Take care,


  • Daniella June 23, 2015, 12:49 am

    This is just nerve wrecking to me, because earlier today I was in my kitchen watching a movie on my iPhone, and I have my empty cup right beside it and it starts moving toward me. For a couple of seconds before I just grab it and take it to the sink. It had my heart racing. And my cat and dog have been acting strang too, like if something has their attention, especially when I’m around. My cat usually follows me but not all the time, but for the past couple of weeks she’s been following me and sleeping with me like if she’s guarding me. More stuff has Happened before it started moving objects like messing with my bed. And I always feel like someone is watching me.

  • Melanie June 25, 2015, 7:11 pm

    I have been living in a condo building for 7 years now and little things here and there would happen. One day I was sitting at my desk and all of a sudden the USB drive starts spinning on top of the desk.
    We have a garbage can that has a lid that swings back and forth to put the garbage in. Once in a while I will see it out of no where just start swinging even though there is no breeze. And it’s not just a little, it swings as if I had just put garbage in it.
    Then a few days ago my husband and I were looking for my 2.5 year olds ball for him to play with outside with my husband we looked everywhere and couldn’t find it. Today I went in my room to have a nap while my son was napping. I had closed the door part way. When I woke up the ball was in front of the door like someone placed it there. I asked my husband and he swears up and down he didn’t know where it was.
    My husbands father passed away about 12 years ago. Today we got some really important news that my husband passed his course he was taking.
    Do you think it could be his father trying to communicate with him?
    I have never met him, he passed away before I met my husband.
    I am just a little freaked out and not sure what to think of all this.
    Thanks for your help 🙂

  • Selina Khan July 3, 2015, 2:29 pm

    Hi Melanie,

    It could be, but not necessarily. If you are scared and want it to stop, ask the spirit (out loud if you want), that if it wants to help the family that’s great, but you don’t want to see anything moving because it scares you. See if it stops. If it’s your father-in-law or a gentle spirit, it will stop. If it doesn’t, you may want to get your house cleared which means a medium who crosses spirits comes and does just that – sees if the spirit needs a helping hand to find the light.

    All the best,

  • Priscilla September 23, 2015, 4:01 pm

    What do you think about finding the laundry room covered with laundry soap? I came home and saw that the container had fallen off of the laundry room shelf. I was screaming. Soap got on the walls. The lid was off of the soap container too.

    I also see faces everywhere in my house. They are on the front door, my tiled flooring, and my wall pictures. I see them on many things in my house. Some are evil looking, and some aren’t.

    Nothing physically haunts me. My childrens toys do go off sometimes 🙂
    I’m the first home owner of this house too.
    Tell me what you think please.

  • Selina Khan September 24, 2015, 4:32 pm

    Hi Priscilla,

    Sounds like you have some mischievous spirits in the house. If I were to do a walk through of your home, I’d bet that I’d find at least one portal where spirits are coming in and out. It doesn’t matter if you are the first owner or not. I’ve cleared houses where it was the first owner and the spirit was either attached to the land, drawn to the light of the people there, or attached to something that they brought into the house like an antique or used piece of furniture.

    The only way to clear the house is to close the portals if there are any and to cross the spirits, and then do a general energetic cleanse. You would need to find someone in your area that does this.


  • Mimi October 10, 2015, 9:42 am

    We are moving into my moms hose, she has moved already to another place. We went over to take measurements. There was an office chair in what is to be my daughters bedroom. My mom left it there for us. When we returned, the chair was moved from the bedroom, down the hall, and placed neatly underneath the desk in the kitchen. The stool that was there was moved to the side. While we were in the house the first time we discussed how that desk could be my boyfriends desk and my office was in another room. No one could have been in the house. My mom was at our old house the entire time (we thought perhaps she had moved it, but she didn’t).

  • Ingrid November 23, 2015, 11:17 am

    What brought me to this website today is that last night I got scared while hearing things in my bedroom. I always keep a plastic bottle on my night stand, this bottle contains some pills/capsules that are just like Tylenol. Last night while I was reading right before sleeping I heard as if somebody had taken the bottle and then placed it back on the night stand, the noise lasted for a few seconds, it was so clear that I turned my head the plastic bottle was still where I had left it. Things like this have happened to me before, but not in the same apartment. One time at another house I heard somebody coming downstairs when there was nobody upstairs. When I was young, one night I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a tiny man in the dark trying to climb on my sister’s bed I managed to get up and turn the lights on and there was nobody/nothing there, this was at a different house also. When I was a child I used to be extremely scared of the dark I couldn’t even sleep with the lights off.

  • Annalisa January 28, 2016, 6:40 pm

    HI there,
    Since everyone is sharing their own experiences, let me do the same with mine.
    8 days ago, something really strange happened. my boyfriend works from home so he is pretty much always around. That particular day however he went out for a couple of hours for a business meeting, when he returned something happened but noticed it only when I came back home from work. Our picture of us together was on the floor and the speakers of the radio have been turned off. The picture have been on the wall for weeks and nothing ever happened before beside we have other things hanging on the same wall but that was the only thing that fell down. Also the speakers have been turned off in a section we never touch. 2 days later I was talking to my sister on Skype and 2 books from the shelf above me just fell on me. those 2 books have been there for ages and I have other things on the shelf so they couldn’t have just fallen do to me moving the furniture by accident as other things much lighter would have fallen as well. These books have been pushed on purpose. 2 days later again returning from a small 2 days trip, we found one of the books that fell down previously (the other one we took with us), have been found on the floor. Again when it fell the first time, we made sure it was on the shelf correctly, also I think this have been pushed so it fell on the desk but pushed again so it would fall on the floor.
    I am starting to get really scared because I have heard that if a soul or spirit whatever we want to call it, goes through the trouble of moving things it’s because it wants to attract out attention to communicate of something big and negative is about to happen.
    What should I do?
    Thank you

  • Selina Khan February 3, 2016, 12:38 pm

    Hi Annalisa,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. A spirit that moves objects is not trying to communicate that something big and negative is about to happen. Moving objects to get our attention is for different reasons. Sometimes it’s because they haven’t crossed and they don’t want us in the house, or other people to move into the house, or they are just trying to intimidate you. Sometimes it’s because they have crossed and they are in the light already. In this case they are trying very hard to let you know they are around you by moving an object.

    If you read my replies to other comments, you’ll find some tips on what to do. If you don’t feel you can handle this yourself or it doesn’t change from your efforts, then you’ll need to bring in a medium like myself to clear the house for you properly.

    Many blessings,

  • Michelle March 28, 2016, 6:25 pm

    My nan passed away the 3rd Feb her funeral was the 19th Feb at the end of the service family and Friends we’re allowed to go up to touch the coffin to say there goodbye my couison went up to say goodbye and the coffin went bang also vicar done sign of cross over coffin has he did he step back in shock was this a sign of my name presented

  • Selina Khan March 29, 2016, 11:00 am

    Hi Michelle,

    I’m sorry to hear about your Nan’s passing. Sometimes spirit will let us know their presence through a noise. It’s usually done on purpose by the spirit as it’s one way to get our attention. It feels like your Nan was there in spirit and was just trying to communicate. Although it can sometimes be a spirit that is not in the light that can also make audible noises, it doesn’t feel like that in this case as your Nan’s spirit was strong and present at the time of her service.

    All the best,

  • jessica May 20, 2016, 8:50 pm

    I know that some comments are a little older but I hope to reach someone. I am not a big believer on ghost, I do believe in spirits. I know sounds weird but anyways I have always had weird feelings, dreams of dead relatives or weird encounters. What brought me here is today I am alone in the home, kids gone and hubby went out to store. Well I was sitting on my couch my laptop sitting on my end table with headphones plugged in the laptop. The headphones reached over to the couch. Beside me a throw pillow… Well suddenly I felt a breeze nothing freezing then the headphones were moving I looked down to see if it was cat when i looked up the cat was on the couch across. I said okay that was odd well I felt movement but gentle and the throw pillow begins to move I said this is getting more off. Well I felt a touch to my leg and then the pillow flipped so I stood up quickly worried. But same time a very calm feeling, I was scared but at same time not so much as I ever thought I be. I did grab my things and went to neighbors told her and she said many people believe your apartment to be haunting. Well I come home and I don’t feel nothing but yet worry. Around 20 years old I am now 27 I went to a wicca shop to buy a skirt I saw in the window and I have dabbled in the studies of witch craft. Well the woman said I had “eyes” but I really need to open them it freaked me out and leaving me lost. But this was one encounter with me awake ad not asleep it is odd and so confussing as to why… I need advice or something

  • Selina Khan May 30, 2016, 1:41 pm

    Hi Jessica,

    Sounds like you need a house clearing to help the spirit that’s there to find some peace. Some spirits are very good at manipulating the physical world. They were definitely trying to get your attention! Sometimes they do this to let you know they are there and not so much that they are trying to scare you.

    Whether you choose to open your “eyes” (clairvoyance or psychic seeing) is up to you. There are meditations and other techniques to work on opening your third eye.



  • Ellen June 6, 2016, 10:00 pm

    Last Saturday 6 am, I was in the shower I heard a child’s voice said “mom”. I thought it was my 4 year old son trying to use the restroom. When I was done taking a shower, my husband asked why I was yelling out son’s name? I said that I heard a voice so I thought that was him. I saw my son still sleeping in the bed right next to my husband. And today, around 8 am this morning, I was in the kitchen using the kitchen table working on some of my paperworks. I saw some papers that belongs to my son to I put it in the living room and when I was coming to the kitchen I saw our bag of white bread on the floor at the middle of walkway away from the kitchen where it was before. What do you think? This never happens before and we were living at this home for 7 months now. Nothing have changed or anything.

  • Selina Khan June 13, 2016, 3:00 pm

    Hi Ellen,

    It is possible that you have a spirit in the house that is causing these disturbances. You may want to think of getting a house clearing done to see if it helps.


  • JM June 19, 2016, 7:33 pm

    When I first moved into my dads basement 4 occurrences have happened that make me unsure of whether something else lives here with me. First I felt something pulling my blanket being pulled off me abruptly. Another night at around 4am in the morning I felt something lay on me for the first time. It took all my strength to push it off and woke up completely. Next time was about 2 years later when it happened again but this time is was more intense. I couldn’t push it off, I felt and heard very heavy breathing and my shirt was coming off. I couldn’t wake up until I said “I rebuke you in the name of the Lord”. I got on the phone with my mother and she was praying with me. While we were talking she heard something say “Oh my God”. In the background but I was the only one there. That was 2 months ago. I’ve been praying every night since then. Yesterday I say my clothes move. I figured it was nothing. Today my friend and I were in my room and my bad hanging on my closet moved more intensely. I’m not sure what’s going on but when these things happen I feel a heaviness. What am I dealing with? I believe I saw a read figure in front of my bed one night but that could’ve been a dream although it didn’t feel like one. Lastly I wake up every night around 2:45am. That could just be me not wanting to wake up late for work.

  • Selina Khan June 22, 2016, 8:08 pm

    Hi JM,

    If it is a spirit toying with you that is not so nice, then you will have to find someone to come in and do a house clearing for you. In the meantime, keep praying before you sleep for protection and to fill the house with the light and love of God. You may also want to set up a camera to see if you can capture the movement on video.

    All the best,

    Hello my names sarah I hope you see this and can shine light on this. My new husband and I moved into his late aunts home where she passed. The home was on 20 acres that was owned by his late granfather. They past 6 months from each other. Than his grandfather from his father’s side past not long after whom lived across the street. ( about 6 months or so apart ) when we moved in things started happening we would hear men’s work boots walking on the front porch all night. I saw a shadow pass the front window when my husband wasn’t home one night. Another time I closed the front door and behind me a glass jar with lid and sand inside fell off the shelf behind me spilling sand everywhere. Our guess room was always cold even thought the ac vent was closed. Some thing big happened that I wouldn’t mind talking to you about if you do read this and decid to respond happened. But it would make this comment really long. Lately the back room isn’t cold anymore but we have gotten a cross. A big barbed wire cross that has a what looks like a crystal ball in the middle has moved. This came from my mother in laws house where it was hung on his wall for a little while per his mother. I didn’t care for it so my husband put it on the very top shelf of my son’s closet where I can’t reach. It moved and was hanging from the corner of the two shelves it was on. I noticed it we freaked but side touch it. The next day it was laying flat on the shelf below where it was. After that not much has happened. When he was a child he said he saw women in dresses on the property. We got new neighborhoods next door (stuff has happened to the old tridents in the part of the story that I didn’t mention) they moved in and not I leven a month moved out and place selling the house. But not much is going on at home.

    Hi Sarah,

    Sounds like you have spirit activity and ones that can manipulate energy enough to move things. You will need to have the house professionally cleared by a medium who knows what she or he is doing. I would also have them bless the house after the clearing. If you decide to do this, I can help you – either in person or long distance – or you can find someone in your area.

    All the best,

  • Sarah July 11, 2016, 8:36 am

    How would I find someone? And how can you help? I do not let my 5 yr old son sleep in his own room because that’s where the cross moved and it feels like I’m being watched in there. I keep that door closed and no on goes to that side of the house much because of that reason. We are trying to have another child also. So I would like my son to be able to sleep in his room soon. Thank you

  • Selina Khan July 11, 2016, 4:41 pm

    Hi Sarah,

    Try googling for a medium and house clearing in your area. Some mediums clear houses and some don’t. You would have to call the mediums in your area and ask them if they clear houses and what their charges are. If you have a new age or crystal shop around you, you might ask or drop in there. Sometimes you’ll get a referral that way.

    I clear houses from a distance. There is no time or space in reality and this is why distant healing can be effective. Same principles apply here in terms of house clearing.


  • Lottie July 28, 2016, 7:05 pm

    I moved into a new house a couple of months ago and I thought it was a great house, however my sister and her daughter (who are very into spiritual things) told me they got a strange vibe from the house. They also said this about the few houses I had before this one as well.
    Anyway, my husband bought a stick from an old railway and turned it into a bow for my son. They tried it out but it didn’t work so we hung it on a peg on the wall. A few days after my husband noticed it moving very vigorously at 8:00pm (there are no windows or anything that could have caused a draft around it) and got quite freaked out by it. He tried to stop it but it just went into full swing very quickly after. We left it and didn’t think too much of it however we did notice that it would do this every single night at 8:00pm sharp.
    Also once we noticed this I started to get very sick and I couldn’t eat and had the most horrible pains in my stomach, my son (4 years of age) started to feel very down and didn’t want to live in this house anymore and he also got very ill but not the same as mine. My daughter (1 1/2 years of age) has been very ill as well and my husband too however not as bad as my son and I. My family thought it was from mould because of the house being small and very restricted of sunlight. The house also smelt of damp laundry. My sister however thought that it was mould but also maybe something a bit more but she didn’t go into much detail as I don’t think she wanted to freak me out and get panicked. The bow also seems to move whenever my sister and her daughter visit me which is strange because it only ever does it at 8:00pm and never at any other time.
    I don’t want to get rid of the bow as I am worried I might anger anything that is attached to me or it! My sister has advised me to sage my house, do have any advice on what it is and what I should do?

  • Selina Khan August 8, 2016, 6:03 pm

    Hi Lottie,

    Sage won’t help with spirit activity. Get it out of your house. Burn it if you must or throw it into water like a lake or stream (away from the house). And then get a proper house clearing done.


  • Justin October 3, 2016, 12:25 pm

    This weekend my wife and were in our room watching TV settling down for the night. We have a baby gate to block the kitchen to keep our dog out. Anyways, she gets up after a while to use the restroom. Comes back in the room and asks “are you messing with me?” I replied “No what are you talking about?” I get up and walk to the hallway, and the baby gate is laying on the floor about 6 feet from where it should be. Dog was in the room with us and our bedroom door was closed. I shrug it off and put the gate back up and we lay back down. She gets back up about 30 minutes later and tells me to come here. I get up walk to the hallway once more and the baby gate is back in the exact same place with our laundry hamper laying on top of it. Okay wow. I once again put the hamper back and put the gate back where it always is. We lay down and go to sleep. I wake up Sunday morning 10/02/16 at around 7am to take the pup out. Hit the hallway, and the baby gate is back on the floor with a dinning chair upside down on top of it. I instantly became aggravated and felt bone cold and began to sweat as every hair on my body stood up, I look at the dinning table and there are 5 pictures from through out the house that are all laying face down on top of each other, with a single picture of my wife upright on top of the stack facing her seat where she sits while we eat. I continue to walk the rest of the house, there is another picture that is of us laying flat picture down, also the picture of us that is on the mantle of our fire place is reversed and facing the wall. I walk back to the stack of pictures, and look to see what they are of to place them. Everything picture except for the one that sitting on top was of the two of us from when we got married.

  • Kara October 29, 2016, 1:51 am

    My mom and I were at a restaurant and she was telling me she was thinking of getting rid of my passed grandpa’s old lawn mower. Suddenly a bottle of steak sauce in front of me slid across the table, but I caught it before it fell. The table was free of water, nor was it tilted. I think it was my grandpa saying he didn’t like the idea of the mower leaving. Lol.

  • eric November 13, 2016, 12:21 am

    Hi selina. I have lived alone in my house for about 7 yrs now and have always felt comfortable. However a couple of mornings ago i was in the shower brushing my teeth and as i was reaching for my dental floss thingy from the window seal behind my shutters, i heard it land in the tub at my feet. I was astonished because nothing like this has ever happened to me. Now i have been feeling uncomfortable in my house. Any suggestions?

  • Selina Khan November 16, 2016, 10:34 am

    Hi Eric,

    You could ask generally and out loud (or in your head) that if there is a specific message that was trying to be conveyed if it could be made apparent in a way that won’t scare you. If these things continue, then you may want to have your house cleared.


  • stephanie January 16, 2017, 12:43 pm

    Hello for the past 3 days a glider rocking chair has moved into the middle of the room by itself. I have a painted tree in the corner of the room with the rocking chair in the corner, tree painted behind it. The first time while I was sleeping and my son was sleeping in his room, my mother was in the living room. You have to pass through the living room to get from one room to the other. I woke up after my nap and went into the baby room and the chair was moved about 3 feet from the corner into the center of room. It was completely blocking the changing table. It got moved back, only to be found moved out again the following morning after we woke up. Now the third time it was moved was this morning I went in to pick up my baby from bed and noticed the chair blocking my path once again. Its almost positioned right next to his playpen he sleeps in, now 3 days in a row after everyone being asleep. I don’t feel negative energies of anything his room gets very hot and he’s roasting in the morning. He did throw up and choke out this morning too hours after a bottle….not sure of that has anything to do with it. Since I have been a kid I have experienced forces around me. Some bad and some good. I havnt felt these energies ever in this house or even in the past few years… So it’s interesting that this is happening and I am curious of your input? Thank you

  • Selina Khan January 19, 2017, 4:33 pm

    Hi Stephanie,

    Looks like someone is trying to get your attention by moving the chair. It feels more so that someone who is female in spirit is watching over your son. If you would like, you can try speaking to this spirit (don’t worry if you can’t perceive them, they will hear you) and ask them to stop moving the chair and if there is a specific message to get it to you in another way that is clear and easy for you to receive.


  • Erin Castro March 1, 2017, 5:34 am

    I have objects moving around my house and me all of the time. It started in 2011 after I had a miscarriage and got divorced and had a bipolar episode that was really bad as the misa carriage mad it worse. Now I am stable and working and in school . My husband ( I am Remarried) were kind of arguing one night before I went to work and he told me that things were moving in the kitchen. They were things that I had touched like the soda can the spoon etc. then we were talking another day and the book my husband got my flew right off the couch infront of both of us. It has happened to me by myself. I was doing laundry at the moment and I went to grab a sock and the baby swing right by it started swinging by itself fast. Earlier that same morning I was trying to get my daughter who was walking around the table and the printer tray that was on the table in the printer completely flew out in front of me to block me. I’m trying to ignore it but I have noticed that it happens whenever my husband and I have problems or I talk about having another baby a lot. Please help is there anything I can do???

  • Selina Khan March 2, 2017, 3:48 pm

    Hi Erin,

    If you have spirit activity in the house, you’ll need to have your house cleared. You can find a medium in your area that does this or if you are not in my area, I can do the clearing from a distance. It could be that there is a spirit that is causing these problems or it could also be the energy created by either or both of you when you are in a high emotional state. If it’s spirit activity, then you’ll need someone to cross that spirit. If it’s your energies, then finding ways to discharge the energy or a better way to communicate will help. It is unusual for adults to cause objects to move by their frenetic energy. It’s more common in puberty aged children.


  • George March 5, 2017, 7:21 pm

    Every time i come home my nans picture is face down on the floor also just yesterday i got home to find my kitten was stuck in the cieling like in a loft that we do not have there is no access to the loft anywhere!! we have no real explanation as to how he got up there but we had to smash the plaster through to get him out could these activities be linked? And could we or our kitten be in danger

  • Emi March 6, 2017, 4:24 pm

    I’m wondering if recent activity in my house is paranormal and if so, if it’s bad or just playful. We just had brand new smoke detectors installed in our home and at 2am the one right outside our bedroom went off for 30 seconds, then went off and then came back on for another 20 seconds. It was odd because it was near to three other new smoke detectors which did not go off and there was absolutely no reason for it to go off. Then, a few days later, I was cleaning out my refrigerator and I noticed that the two magnets that are on my fridge had both been moved sideways. My fiancé promised it was not him and no one else has been in our home. The magnet movement really freaked me out…one of the magnets is made of heavy stone and there’s no way they could moved on their own. I often feel like someone else is with me when I am home alone but have never felt threatened by the energy. We moved into this house three months ago and these two instances have happened recently, within a few days of each other.

    Any advice is welcomed thank you,

  • Selina Khan March 16, 2017, 2:21 pm

    Hi George,

    Try setting up a camera that records and see what you can capture. While I have heard of objects being moved, it is odd that your kitten would be stuck in the ceiling by spirit. Check out what you get first before jumping to conclusions that it’s spirit activity. If you can’t rule it out, then you’ll need your house to be cleared.

    Take care,

  • Selina Khan March 16, 2017, 2:27 pm

    Hi Emi,

    Sounds like a spirit that was already in the house when you moved in. Playful but sort of annoying as well to have your smoke detector go off. If it’s the spirit then I would suggest you may want to tell it to stop moving things around and such as you know it’s there. You would do this just as you would if there were a person standing there. Be strong when you say it but not unkind. Then see if the activity dies down.

    You may want to have your house cleared to both find out what the spirit is there for and if it needs some help to relocate to a better place. If you are in the Greater Toronto Area or if you would like it done at a distance, I can help you. It’s a service that I offer.


  • Rashmi March 26, 2017, 8:50 pm

    I am leaving in a rent apartment,sometimes I feel that’s the things moving itself.One of the incident happened recently I had something to cook on the gas stove and I told my husband I am going to bath so please take care of the stove, it’s on and I went for bath when I came back he told me how careless I am,the stove is on but flame Was off and gas had spreaded in the house but I was100 percent sure when I was saw last time there was a flame in the stove.Second incident was Day after that incident I cooked dinner and after I made it I switched off the stove and moved to drawing room watching Tv after one hour my husband told me something is burning.I told him gas is off don’t worry and after a half hour I went to kitchen and I saw stove was burning and the dinner on it burned fully,I thought how can it possible i off the burner and I remembered it.Third incident when I was painting my nails in drawing room I had 5 nails color and after finishing I took 4 nail color because I can’t took all together and placed in my washroom closet and I saw the fifth one also in washroom.I was so confused.My husband thought I did it all and I forgot.This is true I forgets the things but I remembered all these incident I didn’t do that.Is something paranoid in my apartment.

  • Rita April 11, 2017, 4:29 pm

    Good afternoon:

    I have been living in the house for a few years now and on and off things have occurred that have truly brought me to this point today sending this message to you. We are completely spooked and do not know what to do any more.
    Things have been left outside out of house. Door bell rings; no one is outside. Things have gone missing. Pictures moved and falling off walls. I have certain religious figures within the home they are either turned around so you see the back. They have been pushed down so you dont see the face. I have heard like a wind go through the house and a big “Boom” sound to go see that the figure moved to the floor off the dresser where it has been since we moved in. Recently today actually, I was coming up from the room in basement and to find the candle off the stand and was placed at the first step in the center. I go to front of house to open the blind for morning sun and look over and the little manger with holy family is turned down so we dont see the faces.

    I am upset, spooked, jumpy, scared, with no words and I dont know what to think anymore. Do we want to move, no. But we are certainly thinking now about it. I want to come home from work and not do a check list everytime. I want to be and feel normal in my house and so does the family.

    Please give me your advice and guidance and any suggestions.
    Thank you for your time for reading this.



  • Selina Khan April 15, 2017, 12:20 pm

    Hi Rita,

    Sounds like you have some serious activity in your house. My suggestion is to have the house cleared professionally by a medium who does house clearing. I can do this for you from a distance if you are not close to me or you can find someone in your area to help. Please email me if you would like my services.


  • Rich April 18, 2017, 4:04 pm

    Something really strange happened at my house recently. I had a friend round and brought us both a beer from the fridge to the front room we were in. We went outside the front door so my friend could go for a smoke. When we came back inside. The two cans of beer were in the middle room on the dining room table. I 100% did not put them there and my friend was with me the whole time. It completely freaked me out. What does it mean? Is this a bad sign? Or is it some kind of message?

  • Selina Khan April 20, 2017, 2:40 pm

    Hi Rich,

    Well, it’s a sign that you have spirit activity. I’m assuming no one else was in the house at the time. I don’t tend to take these things as bad or good signs. Just that there is a presence in the house that is wanting your attention. Sometimes it’s for their purposes (being playful, trying to scare you, or just letting you know they are there), other times it’s a message (still letting you know they are there but as a family connection, or to take better care of your health, etc).

    I don’t feel this one is negative. However, if you read some of the other reply to comments, you may see some things to try if you like.


  • Jennifer Shafer May 3, 2017, 2:24 pm

    My husband and son moved into a duplex 2 yrs ago. From the time we moved in we have felt like we were being watched. We brushed it off as getting used to a new house. Things have progressively gotten more then that. Things have been literally thrown across the room, objects sliding, and we and several people who have been visiting us have seen shadows crawling up the wall or running past us. There will be times when you feel like someone is touching you. My sister was even pushed. My dog barks randomly and nasty (He is a great Dane and he is very friendly even with other dogs.) His hackles will be up and he barks and growls amd shows teeth. My cat can be sitting somewhere and all of a sudden his ears go flat and his tail puffs up and he hisses. We dont know what is going on

  • Rowena May 6, 2017, 12:07 am

    Hi Selina, hope you’re doing great! I wanna share my experience with objects being moved(specifically our bar cabinet which has loads of things on it). Ever we since we came back from a month long vacation, the bar cabinet which is located just beside our door is actually blocking the door itself. At first, I was just thinking that it may be because it got moved since we were not home that long. However, when it happened again, (4 times) actually, it got me thinking that there might be “some thing” or “someone” which doesn’t want me to enter the house since these disturbances only happens when I’m the one opening the door. Do I have to be worried about this or I just have to let it go. So far, it did not happen again for a week. Thanks

  • Selina Khan May 12, 2017, 1:17 pm

    Hi Rowena,

    Well that’s an interesting one! If it was me, I would clear the house as I wouldn’t want to have that kind of spirit activity in my place. If it started since you came back from your vacation, it’s possible that you may have brought back the spirit with you. The timing seems to be pointing to that although the spirit may have already been there and decided to be active once you were back. In any case, I would suggest you think about having the house cleared so you don’t have worry about it.


  • Selina Khan May 12, 2017, 1:23 pm

    Hi Jennifer,

    Those are all signs of having spirits in the house. Please find someone to clear the house. If you are not close to me and cannot find someone around you, I can do the work from a distance. Animals are very sensitive to energy and they are reacting to an energy which is making them unsettled. The shadows on the wall are not uncommon. I have seen things such as this several times over my years of doing this work. Of course, the most obvious is the moving of objects.

    The house will need to be properly cleared of spirits. It could be from the previous owners, the land, portals that are open in the house, etc. that caused this kind of activity. There are many reasons for it. If you would like me to do the clearing for you from a distance, please email me and we can discuss the process.


  • J May 24, 2017, 8:33 am

    I never believed in any of this. But i experienced multiple scenarios after buying a house. It started two weeks after i moved in. I left to the hardware store when my wife called telling me screaming that our small dog fell over dead with a puddle of blood out her mouth. I rushed home to see our dog dead. I got on the floor with the dog and was rubbing it when it popped back to life and looked at me with the strangest look.
    It died again a few hours later and decided to leave it be and buried it later.
    3 months later while my 12 year old daughter was showering did i hear her scream like someone was murdering her.
    I ran upstairs to find her wrapped in a towel crying and pointing inside the bathroom. As i walked she said look at the mirror. There was a perfect sketched image of our dog that died in the fog of the mirror. I mean detsiled artist quality sketch.
    My wife started behaving strange shortly afterwards as well which led to out divorce.
    I stayed in the house and developed severe night terrors, and woke up almost every night at 3:34 am.
    My new wife moved in and we seemed to be ok, but the kids often stated they heard things in the house and felt it was haunted.
    Near the end of my time in this house knats were uncontrollable in my kitchen despite all efforts to control them.
    One morning as i walked into the kitchen and turned the light on i saw an orange on the counter drop from a hovering position in mid air.
    Ill be honest, this scared me horribly and changed my view on the paranormal.
    My wife was skeptical and kept saying maybe you were still asleep which made me start to doubt myself.
    Until, one day while my mom and dad came over and we were visiting in our living room. I got up went to the kitchen and sliced me a fresh lime which i squeezed one half into my water. I left both halves with the knife on the counter.
    A short time later my wife walked into the kitchen and gasped loud as she covered her face in fright. She was crying horribly and couldn’t talk right away from her shock.
    She saw the unsqueezed half of my lime hovering in the air going from one counter top to the other where it finally dropped.
    She now believes me:)
    I moved and immediately all my sleep issues, night terrors, etc. Stopped.
    Can someone please tell me what happened and what was i dealing with?

  • Selina Khan May 31, 2017, 4:08 pm

    Hi J,

    Sounds like there was a spirit that was trying to either scare the family or get your attention. It could have been a spirit or entity that was attracted to the energy of the people in the house, the energy of situation, or it may have come in with an object. Some spirits feed off of fear and so try to provoke it.

    It is also possible that this spirit did not have mal intent and was only try to let people know it was there. Our reactions to these things as humans who are not used to seeing floating objects or images appearing may scare us. You may have had your sleep disturbed for many reasons, one being the feeling of intrusion in your auric field when this spirit was around you at night. I’m not excusing it, I’m saying that not all spirit that move things are trying to scare you. Perhaps this one was.

    As the spirit did not move with you, it was probably more attached to the land or the house itself. While it’s not always necessary to move (a house clearing may help), I understand that you were extremely uncomfortable in the house and felt better to leave it behind.


  • Jessica July 18, 2017, 6:45 am

    So ive noticed some weird things one night i tucked my chair into my deck like i usual then next morning i wake up and its right next to me and my bed.Also i have a pen and paper next of my bed then next morning its in the middle of my room? Also every now and again i hear heavy breathing and feel like im being watched. Once i heard this bang from the lounge went to look and there was nothing and i was the only one up i first thought it was my mum..but she was in bed.
    its scaring/stressing me out

  • Selina Khan July 24, 2017, 4:23 pm

    Hi Jessica,

    Try telling spirit to stop their activity. Sometimes this works, but the key is not to be scared when you do it. If you are strong and know that they have no real power over you, sometimes they go away and activity stops. If you can’t be strong or if it doesn’t stop, then find a medium that clears houses. I do this both in person and at a distance, however, you may feel more comfortable with someone local.


  • James August 29, 2017, 8:04 pm


    Now this may be something of a coincidence but my mum died a few months ago. Since then we have had a few bizarre incidents. Firstly, a few weeks prior to her death the cooker suddenly broke down. Fair enough, it was 20 years old but very reliable. The day after her death the washing machine broke down – beyond repair! Around this time, we had some bizarre electrical disturbances in the family room with flickering/pulsating lights. Now, three months in, all has been calm. However, tonight all three of us (my father, brother and I) were out this evening. Upon our return the kitchen curtains had been mysteriously been drawn. Now I am as sceptical as the next person. It could be just a coincidence but these incidents have encouraged me to pursue the relevant guidance. Amy advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • Selina Khan September 11, 2017, 12:44 pm

    Hi James,

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I feel that it’s spirit trying to get your attention. If you are able to, sit in meditation and ask for the message to come through. If you have trouble with this, seek out a reputable medium in your area, or you may use my services either by skype or email as you are in England.


  • Nwafor October 10, 2017, 1:30 am

    am tired of what is happening to me. my items keeping missing and these items are related to my academics such as my pen, flash drive and money. And the money aspect makes me blame innocent people.
    of recently, I kept my flash drive in my suit, but when I wanted to use it, I could not find it. I have to ask my room mates at which they said they are not the ones. please ma’am what can this be?

  • Selina Khan October 26, 2017, 2:27 pm

    Hi Nwafor,

    Before concluding it’s a spirit, I would suggest you rule out all other possibilities. This does not feel like spirit activity to me.

    Good luck,

  • Vinny November 18, 2017, 4:10 am

    Had a shirt on hanger sway quickly for 1 to 2 secs. No gust of wind in house, no one walked by, nothing could have made it move. Studied the area around shirt 5 mins nothing logically plausible could explain how it had moved.

  • Maria December 2, 2017, 12:45 pm

    My mom passed away a year anf 6 months ago. My brothet has a trash can with a swinging lid and he has seen it swing by itself about 2 or 3 times. This thanksgiving we were in his kitchen praying before dinner and we both (just my brother and i) saw the lid move. This morning, i am in my kitchen (in my house) and clearly saw the trash can lid swing. All i did was say if it’s you mom, i love you. If it’s not, then you need to stop. Do you think she’s trying to tell us something? What should we do?

  • Selina Khan December 8, 2017, 2:55 pm

    Hi Maria,

    That’s a good thing to try. My mom kept making a piece of artwork that she had done that I had hanging on my wall crooked. When I finally got that it was her (I meditated to get that answer), it stopped.

    If the garbage can trash lid keeps swinging, I suggest you may want to have a house clearing. However, you have done the right first step.
