Would You Live In A Haunted House?
You have found the perfect house. But it’s haunted. Doors open and close. Lights flip on and off. Footsteps are heard in the hallway, furniture is rearranged and ghostly figures are spotted wandering the grounds.
Would you move in?
Would you be comfortable living with ghosts and/or paranormal activities? Or would you send the spirits an eviction notice?
What are your thoughts on paranormal manifestations?

First, I would do divination and contact the spirits, to see why they were there. If they were trapped, I would assist them across. If they were friendly house spirits who were just there for the heck of it, I'd move in and let them stay. If they were unfriendly or harmful and I could not manage to remove them, or SHOULD NOT for karmic reasons on the part of the spirit, then I would find a different home!

| In Some Houses :) ||Feb 13th. at 4:55:38 pm UTC|

We have a house on some old family property here in California. The house is very old for California, having been built in the 1860s. Anyway, there is a spirit who resides there, and I would definately not have a problem moving in with her. She is the sweetest!
Over the years, a few families have moved into the house as caretakers for the ranch. This spirit (Her name is Molly) often sits on the beds of any children in the house, and sings to them. If men living in the house show any anger or aggression towards any women or children in the house, Molly gets angry, and things start falling off the walls. Also, there was an incident where 2 of my playmates (when I was little) had been somewhat naughty, and their mother became angry. Molly held the door to their bedroom closed so that the mother could not get in until she calmed down. Molly particularly enjoys protecting the adult female occupants of the house, it seems, and loves to tend to the children. I think it is possible she was killed in the house when she was a mother with small children, and remained to protect them. I would have to say that spirits seem to be like roommates.. some you can co-habitate with, and some just aren't any fun at all.

I see no problem living in a haunted house, as a matter of fact i already live in a house that has two spirits in it. What i like about it is the fact that you can comunicate with these spirits and yes they can help you or so they have helped me, and i encourage anyone who finds a haunted house that they wish to live in, go ahead and buy it if its for sale and live there.

i would live in a haunted house as long as the ghosts are not evil ghosts that try to harm people.

Not that the thought of ghosts make me think of evil things sucking out my brain or anything, but I just watch too many movies. I'd be way too scared and I'd start thinking of why the ghost or spirt was there in the first place. Like I said, I watch too many horror movies.

I have lived in haunted houses before and would definately do it again. My family lived in a house for six years that was haunted by the spirit of a child. Besides, spirits are everywhere. Just because you can't see them or sense them doesn't mean they'renot there. You can actually learn a lot if you take the time to notice.
| To Live With Ghosts. ||Feb 13th. at 9:08:30 pm UTC|

The question is not an easy one to anwser. When i was growing up i had a ghost in the house. The ghost was more into pranks that anything. He would take things and hide them. It was not hard to live with him. When i got older i joined the military, i rented a house that had a ghost it was not a good time. She would turn on lights, slam doors & change the time on all of the clocks, that sucked. Because of the trouble she caused i had to brake my lease pay a lot of money i did not have. So i guess that if i had to do it again i would try to find out what actions the ghost was into. I like to live with ghosts it has been a good learning experence, It helped me learn to listen to them and under stand what they were saying and to try and help them pass over.

Personally, I wouldn't want to live with any sort of invisible entity that could be watching me at any time without me knowing about it. I would always feel uncomfortable when doing anything of a private and/or sexual nature.

I have lived in a haunted house....actually a few! Im one of those rather odd folks that attracts spirits, at first it scared the heck out of me but then I got older and learned how to communicate with them and now they dont bother me at all.
| Sure I Would ||Feb 13th. at 10:42:36 pm UTC|
|David (Visalia, ca) ||Age: 27 - Email |
I would live in a haunted house, spirits havnet ever bothered me, i can see, sense, feel, and talk to them all the time so they dont bother me that often. WHen they have and caused problems ive been able to banish them with no problem at all, havnet needed spells or warding or anything like that, so it wouldnt bother me to live in one.
| Pro Confederate Interracial Activist Moves To Hanted House ||Feb 13th. at 10:54:26 pm UTC|

I beleive that since I am a culturally unique enough gentleman to discover and promote the interracially and multicultural based Confederate communities in the Brazilian cities of Americana and Santa Barbara D 'Oeste, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brasil and their websites are: www.scv.org/camp1653 and www.mablanentertainment.com (818) -881-6976 (located in Tarzana, California) , then I am bold enough to live in a haunted house, and possibly invite these lonely spirits to become a part of my family, because I would at least have a logical understanding of their lonely suffering.
