I used to live in a place on Cogswell Road owned by a Chinese landlady. In the corridor the lights used to go on and off all the time but only for certain periods of time. Everybody who moved in there reported that they felt like they were being watched. Eventually I saw shadows on the wall but in a very subtle way. Finally I was able to hear a manīs voice who was commenting on people known to me. This voice would accompany me also to other places. Within that house there always used to be quarrels and arguments between whoever moved in there.
It happened that as I was preparing to step out of my room onto the corridor where the lights sometimes went on and off, I halted because I noticed that a renter (I didnīt like) was standing there talking to the landlord's son. The spirit said ''****!'' in a tone of voice darker than mine, and the person I didnīt like turned around glaring at me (he was a violent type of person) and asked me: ''did you just say ''****'' to me?'' I denied it and told him that something had spoken, but it wasnīt me. The landlord's son had also heard the spirit curse. He confirmed to him that there were strange things going on in that house like the lights in the corridor going off and on at certain times.
You could also hear a creaking sound in the rafters in the wee hours of the morning whereas at daytime this never occurred. I studied a little bit of the true ancient Chinese fengshui. The interesting thing was that in the kitchen where the fengshui was corresponding to the appropriate place for a kitchen you could hear voices comment on things that were going to happen: such as when someone smashed in a few windows while drunk, and in a fit of rage I heard a voice comment prior to this event and on the morning of that day that this (the violent bad temper) was the work of the devil. The commentator must have been a white male middle-aged and a rather strong and heavy set man. I wonīt say the exact house number. I believe that these happenings are a. ) an effect of the fengshui, b. ) of people who have lived there and worked on the house or died there, and c.) the longer you stay and the more emotions you experience in that place the greater the response of those spirits will be. In this case the house was fairly new, just one within a gated community and the spirit must have been from some house that had been torn down.
I stayed there for five years, and lots of tenants moved away because there were always quarrels and altercations taking place between people. The spirit though seemed to be on my side because I used to take care of the garden in the back yard. I wished by myself for the evil guy who kept bullying me to stumble, and he did twisting his ankle badly...Things like that. All in all the spirit activity wasnīt all that scary, but it was noticeable, and it seemed to irritate especially those tenants who lived upstairs.
