Spokane Poltergeist



A few different incidents took place in my home in Spokane Washington. I really can't give you exact dates because I did not write any of these things down. Oh, how I wish I did. About three years ago in 2007, in the middle of the day, I was standing by my back slider door talking on the phone. On the same wall as my slider there were pictures of my kids. When I hung up the phone, my son's picture flew off the wall and landed about 6 feet on the end of my counter, face down. The other two pictures were undisturbed. I investigated to find no reason for this to happen.

About three years later, my sister was here alone in the day time, and she got up to leave the living room for a minute and on her return our cloths hamper that was on the side of the room against the wall was now in her path in the middle of the floor, as if someone put it there. She has also seen a black mass or shadow moving down the hall. Also, she has felt as if she is being watched.

Months later, I myself saw this mass going down the hall. It was not like a normal shadow on the wall, but by itself in the middle of the hall. My wife, who does not believe too much in this kind of stuff, a few weeks later started to change her mind a little bit when she heard a little kid's voice in the house, and our kids were in school. She could not find the source to this voice.

A week later, it was around 10 or 11 at night and I had just gone to my room to get ready for bed, and my wife was watching the rest of her show on TV. I had just sat down on the edge of my bed and I heard some sort of crash in the living room. I hurried to the bedroom door to go check to see if my wife had knocked something down or ran into the end table or something. When I opened the door, my wife was right there white as a ghost. I asked her what the noise was and she told me that my little girl's radio that was on the end table all day flew off the table. She said she did not see it rise up from the table, but she saw it floating about a foot away from it and crash to the floor.

Later that same night, we were awakened by a strange noise coming from the living room. My wife told me to go see what it was. I was coming out of the bedroom and I stood in the living room and it sounded like someone had just breathed into my ear. I did not feel a breath, but it was right next to my head.

We have not told my children any of these things at all, but the next night my youngest got out of bed to go to the bathroom. She woke us up, trembling and muttering something about a dark figure in the kitchen. She said it was as big as a man. I got up and checked the whole house to find nothing. I went back to comfort her and again asked her what she saw. In her words she told my wife and me that it was a shadow as big as a man in the middle of the kitchen floor. We hear things that are unexplainable all the time.

About two or three days later, we had adopted a pup, and for some reason everything seemed to stop, but I still feel a presence in my home, as if I was being watched. My little girl hears things in her room too that I can't figure out. I don't know if I believe in ghosts, per se, but I do however believe that there are demons that could hurt people in this world. I figure if they are moving objects, they can hurt us. There are other little things that have happened, but not real sure if it is paranormal or not. Well, there you have it. Probably not the best story you have heard, but they are fact as I know them to be. I cannot prove any of this yet.
