WOW. I could have written this post myself. 4 years later and no helpful responses for Blade.
Sorry Blade62... I can only offer my similar and crazy house dream story... and then some...
This previous house my partner & I lived in, was possessed by it's previously deceased owners (they died there and their kids owned it). Even stuff that looked like it may have belonged to them, was seen over the years, emerging from the soil - pushing up to the surface. Much like Blade62's story, the preacher who sold me the house lied and covered up all sorts of major problems - which the inspector totally botched and missed. So needless to say, I was not pleased with the house. All sorts of weird stuff happened there at the Money Pit for 13 years. On the final day after selling it, we both got creeped out and harassed the last day we were there to close it down. Not a nice experience. So anyway, I sold the house and moved away further into the next town. But the house kept calling us back. When in the area, we found ourselves driving back to the house off and on over 12 years, parking in the drive or nearby....just to look at it. WTH? Last year it was DEMOLISHED. LOL. Our last visit was sitting in the driveway looking at a pile of dirt among the trees. Not end of story. We are still having dreams of going back - and the guilt of being caught in the house by the owners.
Since we left 13 years ago, BOTH of us still have reoccurring dreams about the house! Not usually on the same night, but the dream is often similar with variations. We both see ourselves there when the new owner is gone - sometimes together, sometimes separate - always concerned we will get caught being in the house or on the property. 50% of the time we DO get caught by the new owner, and the outcome varies. Oftentimes I am cooking a meal there, when we get busted. He & I both often have our dead dog there with us, as well. The dream morphs into various scenarios, but the fact that we start out dreaming of a house we hated...it boggles the mind. I just had another dream about the house last night -- and THIS time, I was there cooking and got busted by (of all people) Kathy Bates! (imdb.com/name/nm0000870) It turned out well, but how weird is that!?
<< This part is better suited for a haunted house forum, but I'll add it anyway >>
This is crazy, but an expensive piece of artwork we brought from our old house to our newly built home, still CREAKS. It started creaking about 6 months after it was purchased. It always creaked when we passed by it or spoke of -or- to it, at the old house. Otherwise, the creaking sound was not heard. And the creak was LOUD. To date, if we speak to this artwork on the wall, it actually CREAKS...as if to answer. I have moved it around in the new house, but it still creaks when we are in front of it. I once had it hanging over the bed, and whenever we would be talking -- it would start creaking.
Time pieces in this new home are disturbing, as well. Clocks don't keep proper time AND fly off the walls. Atomic Clocks do NOT work here. I have purchased several different brands of atomic clocks at different stores, and none will connect and keep time. They are always 5-6 hours off -- and the hands start spinning at random times. My mechanical office wall clock, which is used daily, began reading ONE HOUR behind! Exactly one hour. I left it at that time for a month, to see if it was a battery problem, but no...it kept perfect time...just exactly one hour behind. Neither of us touched that clock! Just an idea of weird stuff we contend with.
This newly built home is haunted, as well. It must be the land it sits on, as we built it and are the first owners. I researched the land and back in the early 1900's, it had a land owner's mansion with worker's housing built on the land we now occupy - which was farm land prior to the build. Other neighbors who built here, have problems as well. Like our previous home (the one in our dreams), it has both dark and light entities roaming about, impressions/visions of many decades of beings, like a 1970's dressed man and a tall dark male entity with an old top hat and a long, black flowing cape that disappears around corners -- as well as unusual crashing and banging all over the house. Things go missing and bump in the dark. We can't keep light bulbs nor electrical stuff running for long, before they begin to malfunction. I checked the electrical wiring - it's fine. Many of the light bulbs explode or go out when *I* am nearby.
My dreams - that I remember - are usually disturbing; house dreams or otherwise. We have done smudging, house blessings, bowl ringers, seers, you name it. I now experience sleep paralysis with horrifying creatures doing unbelievable things, as well as waking up with many finger bruises on my legs and arms -- and myself & my bed linens are in complete disarray and upside down. It's almost like an alien abduction!
<< End of haunted house rant >>
Long story short.... we just can not figure out why we continue to dream of this house -- and it is now rubble...and doesn't even exist anymore! The fact that we both have the dreams, similar in nature, makes us ponder. I understand a house dream is a representation of ourselves - but the obsession with it, even though it was unpleasant to live in, simply boggles the mind.
We will continue our search for why this house won't go away for either of us... and what that means.
Thanks for reading
