How can you tell if there is a negative energy/spirit in your house?

Please read this question with an open- mind.


I know this may seem far fetched, but about a year ago my fiance’ and myself moved into a house.

Not long after we moved in, I started to develop severe depression. I can only explain it as an intense negative emotion, but mostly when I am at home. A feeling of complete sadness overwhelms me almost as soon as I walk in the door.

About a year ago, one of my neighbors told us that the lady that used to live here shot herself and died in my living room. Could this be the cause of this negative energy in my house? My fiance’ said that he gets a negative feeling when he is home too.

I have lived with my fiance’ before with no problems, so I’m pretty sure it’s not because I live with him that I feel this way at home. Anyway, any advice would be great, because I am often home alone due to my fiance’s work schedule, and it’s getting to the point where I hate to be home.

Thanks and please no sarcastic comments, please keep an open -mind.

OK, so apparently, the whole no sarcastic thing didn’t set in here. Although I must say that some of your comments were amusing. Yea I probably do suffer from depression, but I still think my house is haunted and that doesn’t help me at all. I do also believe that if I didn’t know what happened in my house, I would be better off. And for all the helpful advice, thanks.

For everyone else, well I guess I’m glad I’m here to entertain your bored selves.

Also to answer some of your questions.I do live by an Exxon Mobile, and train tracks. I also don’t have a basement, and I have heard that sometimes if you don’t have a basement raydon( don’t know the correct spelling) can seep up from the ground.

If that means anything. My house is pretty old and we may have mold and old paint as well.

And basement Cat, I also forgot to add that my electrical system is very outdated. So if you can give me any more info on what you were saying, it would be very helpful, thanks. Because that does make more sense then having a spirit in my house ๐Ÿ™‚

I know the feeling. My wife and I moved into a house built in 1886 3 years ago. We are very happy outgoing people. She moved out in December feeling depressed. her and the kids are getting help and I feel depressed with no energy. we are selling the house and hopefully we get back together. The word on the street is, the last five couples that lived here either got a divorce or separated.

It is happening in my house too. we rented this house before we buy it. the landlord told us her mother died in the bedroom. Anyway. I was not happy to hear that! so I told my husband lets rent it for a year or two until we be able to buy a house. after 2 years the landlord said I would like to sell you the house. I freaked out. I told my husband I do not want to buy this house there is a person died here and there is a bad energy all the time since we… Read more ยป

Yes I believe. There is a spirit of depression in that house. Same one that made the other lady kill her self. Either get out or get someone to pray and clear out the negative energy.

I am married with 2 daughters (15 and almost 10)… we moved into our house in May of 2016. When we first moved in it made me so physically sick I had to stay in 1 room almost all of the time. I attributed this to the previous tenants having multiple animals (I’m allergic to different types of cats and dogs). So I paid out of my own pocket to have carpets and vents ducts all cleaned. This helped both not completely. I’m constantly cleaning vacuuming etc. Since leaving there it feels like we have all begun to have all… Read more ยป

What will help.. Is for you ALL… to acknowledge the spirits presence…. These poor souls are lost, stuck and miserable. If your living in a house knowing or feeling like something or somebody is watching you, DONT IGNORE IT. Speak to it and don’t feel foolish. If you keep ignoring him or her its gonna make the situation in your home worse. But if you acknowledge its presence… calmly with respect I promise you you’ll see and feel a difference. These spirits need help crossing over. Its not all demonic and evil so don’t get freaked out. Keep you’re faith… Read more ยป

I moved from Queens, NY last year to a condo in CT Memorial Day Weekend. I left a bad relationship & couldn’t be happier to be back in my home state. I was happy all the time in that condo, good vibes, motivated to do everything & anything. I cleaned that house top to bottom every week, I had a bunch of friends over almost everyday to hang out & I was absolutely happy. It was like this for the whole summer & fall. Come December, I noticed the vibe of the house starting to change. I was no longer… Read more ยป

I recently started having bad energy start with in my house. I came home and all the screws to a door were lying side by side on the floor, and the cat was going crazy right in that area also/ i also started having really vivid dreams of sadness or fear. So i smudged my house and put black crystals over the doorways…helped a lot.

Yes, you are probably feeling leftover negative energy. I feel it instantly when I walk in to my mothers house. Try saging the house. That is known to clear out negative energy. You can look online to find out how to do it . I decided to move back into my mothers house to save on rent, and I had to get out of there. There was so much negative energy in there and like a feeling of depression, an. As soon as I got out of there I didn’t feel it anymore. So yes it very well is most… Read more ยป

I definitely do believe in “energies” and from my experience they do travel along train tracks. Keeping the house windows open as often as possible and filling the house with as much natural light as possible definitely helps, create a cross ventilation/breeze to allow all the stagnant air to be moved out. You also mentioned that your electrical system is old? This can be hugely negative to your body and mental well being. Your body creates positive ions and so does the electrical wiring in your house (unless it is earthed correctly) too much positive ions in the body creates… Read more ยป

To be completely honest this may be a very old story but i may say that I’ve been followed by things because of my great grandpa he would kill girls and rape them . I moved from my first house because someone had died in it and about a montha after we lived in this house my sister had earphones out she said she would put them away because she didnt want to be choked and she also told my friends that an old hag who was a witch died here and she put them away and locked the closet… Read more ยป

Well, I think this kind of stuff might happen, even if I do not think a “spirit” is always “evil”. It might be a spirit who has some kind of Karma, and is just trying to escape it. Or it might not be a spirit but just an enrgy that doesn’t fit yours. Who knows really. I think the best is to try to move house if it is possible, then you will get answers. If they “heavy” feeling stays, then maybe you are facing some kind of issue with yourself, and if the negative feeling is not here anymore… Read more ยป

My house also feels so heavy,, and thats the only way to describe it really.there are huge thumps on one wall that can be felt, knocking on my sons bedroom wall, things falling, yet cannot find anything out of place. Health problems, financial problems, depression (for me definitely).my husband had a heart attack nov 27 2015, and his dad had died in this home on the same date years ago. He thinks I’m probably going crazy because i seriously believe something is wrong with our house. Also a few summers ago, we tore out an old sidewalk, and when we… Read more ยป

Came here for answer. My family and I have lived in our Dutch Colonial for 11 years. We were so happy in the beginning but now, my wife and I are separated. Reflecting back over the years so many negative things have happened. Financial problems, fighting, depression, all sorts of problems. I became an alcoholic at one point, sober for 3 years. Strange occurrences with with entities. Such hate. Now when I drop off my children I don’t want to go in,I’m at peace without the house. My dream had turned into a nightmare. I kept wanting to die the… Read more ยป

I was just looking for an explanation of why my 12 year old and 16 year old grand sons say they can’t sleep at their dad’s new house because they feel a heavy energy in their room. They say they always feel like they’re being watched or someone is creeping up behind them but know that nobody is there. I thought it was a little strange that they both feel this when it’s a brand new house and shouldn’t have any lingering energy
