Would you buy a haunted house? - Page 2

post #31 of 46
I would buy a house that suited me with lots of wonderful space for my feline friends. Not sure that I believe in all the evil entities people talk about. Why look to the netherworld for bad things when we have enough to keep us occupied in the living?

Also not sure why ghosts or whatever are always supposed to be bad. If the energy is there why can't it be friendly or funny or even uninterested in what we're doing? For me, I don't really disbelieve but I have never had supernatural experiences. All my boogy men were flesh and blood and alive.

Pentagrams aren't bad, either. Just another symbol that has been given a bad rap with misguided superstition.

I saw the show she watched too. Apparently it was used in some sort of ceremony that opened a portal.

As far as I know Pentagrams are protective symbols. Perhaps the one that was in the house on that show was actually an inverted pentagram? That would make more sense to me.

You know what? Maybe that's what it was doing. As soon as they ripped off the boards that had the pentagram painted on it, that's when their "demonic" activity started. The Fireplace itself (where you put the wood) was probably the portal.

So I'll just leave the pentagram as is or buy another house

That must have been what I missed in the first 5 minutes. I was puttering around while that part was on. That makes sense. Yep. Should have left it alone.

I watched a total of probably 10 hours of A Haunting in the last few days. And there were actually a few shows I hadn't seen before.

I've been watching "A Haunting" (now ghost hunters, but that's beside the point) and one couple purchased a house with a pentogram painted on some boards that covered one of the fireplaces.

OMG they had such a horror/demon haunting that place that I pretty much am leary about buying one. Even after they got rid of the entity, another one came through because where that pentagram was placed was a portal for demons.
Pentagrams are a protection symbol. And "A Haunting" is just as bad as "Most Haunted" They've both been proven as acting.

I already live in a haunted house. I knew it was haunted when I bought it. The previous owners had taped cloves of garlic over every door as a protection against evil. I have mischevious (sp?) spirits, but no one is evil.

Back in the 1950s my Mom had the opportunity (and the money) to buy a early 1800s house and acreage for $5000. (Her dad talked her out of it and now the land is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.)

One of the bedrooms is supposed to be haunted. Mom talked to a couple of friends who slept in that room but sometime during the night they quickly left the house and slept in the barn!

Our house? Well, Mom swears she heard the coffee pot rattle not long after my paternal grandfather died. He liked Mom's cold coffee and always announced his visits by reaching in the kitchen door and shaking the coffee pot to see if there was any coffee in it.

I answered that I would love it, but I wonder if I really would.

I did have a couple experiences when I was alone in my room as a teenager and distincely heard flute music - and no flute in the house. It was right there in my room - weird. A couple other weird things as a teenager, but nothing recently.

A Haunting is reenactments. It seems like last year and this year they keep focusing on sillier stories where everything is a "demon". However I do know that some, if not most, of those stories are based on true accounts. I've read the original story to the one about Man (little boy being haunted) on a site it had been submitted before Discovery ever came across it, and the webmaster swears that the woman who submitted didn't lie. (I forgot to bookmark it before, but the site is called guardiantales.)

And Most Haunted is just silly. If one is going to scream and get upset over the littlest thing, such as tripping over something, then maybe they shouldn't be out ghost hunting?


As for buying a haunted home. No. Even if it's not harmful it can still be very annoying. Could any of you deal with 3 straight months of something tapping you bedroom walls and ceiling at 2am-4am nearly every morning? Lights on, lights off, it didn't matter....I learned to sleep with headphones on playing music.
Besides, I'm unlucky enough stuff finds me regardless of where I live.

I'm torn as whether or not I actually believe in ghosts. When I was in the Army some of my friends rented a trailer off post and we would hang out and party there a lot. For some reason none of them would sleep in one of the smaller bedrooms at the front end of the trailer. They used it mainly for storage and would go in and out of there rather quickly. I asked them why nobody ever slept there and they said something wasn't right about the room. One night after a party at the trailer I happened to pass out in there. One of my buddies was also passed out in there. I guess it was around mid-morning but I woke up after feeling something blow against my ear and brush my shoulder. My eyes opened wide as I shot straight up. Frank was still out cold and no one else was up in the trailer. That was the last time I slept in that room. I asked about it later that day and two of my friends who lived there mentioned they thought the room was haunted. It was always cooler in there. The strange thing was that no other part of the trailer was like that.

Heck no, there's no way I would buy a house if I knew it were haunted.

I wouldn't. I believe there's ghosts so the only thing i'd do is to stay in one overnight, as long as someone else came with me though

I guess it doesn't bother me because I have always lived in old houses. My parents always joke when anything breaks or makes a loud noise in their house that "it must be Papa Doyle" who was the father of the previous owner. We think that he decided to stay when they moved.

Once again, no one wants Amityville...Caspar the friendly ghost please!!!

I'd buy it. Paranormal events or entities don't scare me.
