My wife and I live in a single-story home for about three years with our two small dogs. Ever since we moved in we've heard an occasional loud bang on a wall (usually same room or 1 room over). It only happens about every two months so it just ends up being a freaky experience but we're able to dismiss it and continue our lives. Well things have become very active over the past few nights.
Three nights ago we started hearing moderately loud bangs on the walls around us in the computer room; about 6 bangs throughout the evening. But two nights ago we got the scare of our lives. It was about 12:30AM and we were in the TV room, discussing even more banging that had gone on that night. All of a sudden the loudest BANG occurred right over our heads on the ceiling. We both instinctively slid to the floor. LoL It's funny now but when it happened we thought someone was coming through the ceiling on top of us. I tried to think of a rational explanation like the house settling. But honestly, it sounded as if a large man was standing on the cross beams in the attic and drove a 2x6 down onto a cross beam as hard as he could.
Now our attic has literally no access to it. You would have to go out into our garage and affix our little ladder under the attic door and stand on top of it to pull yourself up to the attic, walk across the house and be on top of the ceiling in that location. We definitely would've heard an intruder make that journey across the cross beams up there.
Well last night the same sound was heard in the same room when we were in there at 12:30AM. Though not as hard as the previous night, it was still loud and forceful enough to assure you that it was no animal. It sounds like something very hard hitting the wood up there.
Thinking that it might be a spirit, I tried provoking it to do more but to no avail. Tomorrow night we're going to try to capture some EVP's to get a handle on what kind of spirit it is before proceeding with a house cleansing.
Do you think maybe our house is just falling apart or something? lol
EDIT: Some other things I forgot to add: I'm pagan and moderately psychic (i meditate and practice when i can). also for the past 3 months we've both been seeing black orbs. one actually flew at my face while i was up late watching TV by myself.
