How To Find Out If Ghosts Are In Your House

If you want to know if your house is haunted by ghosts, then there are several questions you need to ask yourself to confirm the feeling. By completing this one-way Q and A, you will know if ghosts are in your home once and for all.

Do you often get chills or feel cold in certain areas of your home? Ghosts have incredibly low blood pressure (they’re dead after all). When you feel these cold drafts, you are likely walking right through a ghost! Areas where cold drafts are often reported include near bedroom windows, under air conditioning ducts and in front of the refrigerator.

Is this you? (on right)
Is this you? (on right)

Are you constantly losing your keys, shoes and other things and finding them later in odd places? Ghosts, particularly ghost children, are notorious tricksters and they love to hide personal items and watch you turn the place upside down to find them. However, lost trinkets do not immediately indicate a ghost. In many cases, it is something incredibly more mundane – like a leprechaun, fairy or Bigfoot. Also, if the item being stolen is female undergarments, it’s probably my friend Steve.

Do you hear noises in the middle of the night? If so, then this means that your hearing is normal and ghosts are likely not in your home. However, if you DO NOT hear noises from dusk to dawn and you sleep soundly through the night, then this is almost certainly because a ghost is holding his or her hands over your ears. They do this so their friends can rifle through your stuff without waking you.

Do you see ghosts? If so, then what you are seeing may be ghosts.

Do lamps, furniture or dishes inexplicably move from one location to another? This is likely the result of a ghost. Remember, ghosts have been cooped up in your home for decades or even hundreds of years. Much like a housewife, they get bored easily and begin to think that redecorating is a good way to kill some time. Of course, they are wrong, but if you want that ghost to keep putting out, you’ve got to put up with it.

Do you often feel like you are being watched? Then you probably are. By my friend Steve, who is outside your window waiting for you to go to bed so he can steal your panties.

If you answered “yes” to all, some or none of these questions, then it is safe to say that a ghost is haunting your house. In such cases, you should contact me, Harold Ramis, licensed ghost hunter, to confirm your suspicions. Call me day or night, 24/7. My schedule is pretty wide open these days, so I should pick up on the first ring. If not, leave a message with my mom and I’ll get back to you ASAP! Competitive rates!

        1. Some of those things you said are signs of a ghost but it could also be you being paroniod… have people been talking about ghosts cuz that can get the mind set of it. you could try poring salt in all the threshholds of eery door to try to trap the ghost in a certain area, memerize that area pretty well and then check it once or twice a day for about a week and see if you notice anything diff about the area. if so yes you hae a ghost, a fairly pissed off one at that cuz you trapped it.

        2. what do i think is that ur house must b havin ghosts……dere must b someone else living in ur house before u got settled over here. what my grand ma says is that when a person dies and there is no one there for his cremation he is unable to live the earth and it could also happen that ,the person who died is very close to his house and his love and attraction for his house is forcing him to live in that house and he even don’t want anyone to live in that house…………u must get info abt that house and get clarified who used to live over there
          happy to help u……i’m a 14 year old girl

From what my mom tells me he would ask about me a lot before he passed away.I was incarserated at that time n I wasent able to see him whwn he passed n,way back to the day my mother and I were playing around talking smack to each other jocking around and I had maid a comment about my mother n I were by our selfs in the living room my older sister was in the bed room when I made this comment at wich. Point my mother walks out side to the yard to check on some close she had washed minutes earlyer well as soon as my mother whent outside I felt somebody grabed me by the waist kind of like scrached me.I look back riteaway n there was noone there I fricken freeked out

  5. Ok, so what should I really do, I feel like Someone is always following me and watching me, and my house was built in like the 1950’s or something

  6. i talk to ghosts and can see them. they tell me aboout there past life and help me with things like leading me towards a object i misplaced or turn the tv off/on.

    1. i live with my uncle and aunt in pell city alabama and i have had some items lost, i lost a pack of playing cards and now a flashlight, i had the light setting beside my computer and got up to go to the restroom and i come back and its gone i checked everywhere but i had it if it fell it wouldnt roll off the table so someone had to pick it up, the cards i think i put them on my table and now i cant find them and its been a while since i lost them, also today the tv remote went missing to and the tv turned on 3 times and the volume went up and the channels changed. plus the dogs keep whinning and growling at something.

    2. Ok so I don’t know you, but I think you may know how to answer this,
      I moved to this house two months ago I think,
      And ever since, I’m seeing that white ghost that looks like someone who is wearing a white blanket from it’s head to it’s feet,
      It always keeps like two meters of a distance between us, and it appears for few seconds suddenly then when I look at it directly it disappears, so can you tell me what does this mean?

  7. We, my wife and I have lived in our home for three years, I know we have ghost animals in our house. We think from our passed away cat Fritz, his ashes are here, but when alive he had never been here. We see him almost on a day to day, we also have another male cat Fritzie, who goes crazy most of the day, running jumping banging into walls actually runs along our vertical walls, jumps up in the air while trying to catch something while screaming….all almost all day and all hours of the night. I have the ashes of my late twin brother Joseph in the house, but I have never seen him. Wish I could. Anyway, our house feels like a fun house with all of the goings on… What can I do?

  8. i hear knocking on my walls between my brothers wall and mine hes 28 of course hes possibly not as worried its a very old house and we just moved weve been here for about a half a month my brother woke up two nights ago and said he heard rattling papers and saw a shadow go left then right then dissapeared i saw a soldier or somthing shadow and the knocking is up high on my window too but my window is up high no body could reach it one day it happens to me one day it happens to my brother never in any other room just our rooms and it mostly happens the night that my friend leaves after spending the night i feel like im being watched !!!!am i crazy or is this real???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Alexis, that knocking on on the wall between your brother and your bedroom isnt a ghost. it is your 28 year old still living with mom and dad brother beating off in his bed cause he cant get a girlfriend.

  9. i also have 3 dead grandfathers but only my real ones ashes could they be trying to get my attention?

  42. I was getting ready to ride my bike in my garage and all of the sudden all these hangers fall off the shelf and remember I am only 11 and I also had sirens on my bike and they would not turn off so I ran for my life I am still scared to oven sleep in my room why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. This was the day before yesterday……so I was by my tablet and it wasn’t plugged in our anything it was fully charged and it randomly turned on…..I didn’t touch it either….then after that I was doing the dishes and I wasn’t looking at the fosset and it was moving on its own. Then last night I was laying on my bed on my side, checking my phone and I felt a metal bar hit my back….I don’t know what to….

  44. So me and my cousin were in the basement in our grandparents house we felt things and saw things and we set something on the ground in a circle then we left when we came back it was a few inches away from the circle and no one else can go down there! Do ya’ll really thing its a ghost?

  45. when my brother was about 4 or 3 he seen a ghost and he remembers it clear as day and she was above his fan in his room he can describe it perfectly till this day and he is 17 now he said this ¨she had black hair or really dark brown hair wore a white nightgown and had pail skin but no like grey pail white like a pail person. A year ago my girl friend saw the exact same thing. A few weeks ago i had a dream and it was about a white nightgown on my brothers door and every day it got bloodier and bloodier until it came alive and showed the exact same thing my brother described and chased me. I know for a fact that there is a ghost in my house named suzey and i think sue protects me from the white gown girl but i wanna know if the white gowned girl is good or bad or trying to tell me something because when my gf seen her i didnt even know her yet is that what brought us together? if you have any clue about this ghost in the night gown let me know @ 8643618397

  46. I’m perplexed….I purchased my home roughly a year and a half ago. I bought it from 3 children, all in their 60’s, who got it from their mother who passed over a year prior to that. In the first 3 months my water heater which is in my attic somehow was adjusted to colder temperatures which meant hot water ran out rather quickly. I am the one who put the adjusted temperature on the hottest setting and to do so requires turning a knob to the desired setting, which is difficult to do. I was perplexed on how that happened but ignored it. Six months later, it happened again. Things of my daughters have been moved or misplaced. Finally, just a couple of days ago…I have a restroom just outside of the kitchen that the handle broke on last month but I never got around to fixing it, the other morning, my youngest daughter said dad, come here, there’s no water in the toilet. I discovered that the water flow valve was turned off. That blew my mind, how in the world could that happen?! That knob is very difficult to turn and no one else was in the house.
