I have recently moved into a house thats not really all that old, probably built in the 50s or 60s.
I have never really believed in ghosts.
Twice now i've woken at 3:30am to my doorbell ringing.
I get up, look out my window (which faces the front door) and noone is there.
We have a huge fence around the property with a sliding gate that makes a loud noise as you close it, which was closed so clearly noone's been.
I thought possibly the battery is dying in the ringer so it is alerting me by going off randomly, so this morning I checked it.
2 problems with this theory, firstly, no batteries its connected to the mains.
secondly when I tested the bell, the tone that came out was nothing like the one i'm hearing through the night and it cannot be set to different tones.
Also I keep waking during the night and seeing my 4 yr old standing next to my bed. Nothing unusual in that, she has always done it, except that when I wake fully she is gone and when I go to check her, my daughter is snoring away in her own bed.
Lastly, the blinds in the laundry keep rattling like wind is blowing through them when the windows and doors are all closed and there isnt even any wind outside.
I haven't felt creeped out by the house at all, until now.
Do people have some lovely logical answers for me as to what makes this stuff happen, other than ghosts of course, cos I gotta live in this place for at least 12 months!
Just some things I would check on first. Does your daughter have any toys that make that sound. Since she is up at night. And some toys have a tendency to sound automatically for various reasons. Next, check the blinds for good functionality. If they're mini blinds then the cord could be slipping the gear during any vibrations. Moths are also known to move things such as curtains or blinds. As far as you awakening fully and your daughter being gone to be found fast asleep, become conscientious of how many times you hit the snooze on the alarm clock. It may take you longer to rouse than you realize.
If, in fact, the weirdness continues after you have eliminated all of that. DO NOT attempt to communicate with anything (assuming there is anything to communicate with). It is best to fill your home with strong love and to ignore anything out of the ordinary. And if that doesn't do it, call on the clergy, not ghost busters. It may just be negative energy floating about.
Hope this helps.
