Case Study #2 – A Military Wife

I’m a married woman. (Shocking, I know!) After sharing space with my husband for the last 17 years, I can tell you that when he’s gone, even with three kids, the house feels different. It feels extremely empty. When he’s gone, my senses are constantly on high alert, especially at night, and I don’t sleep well. So, it came as no surprise that in February, 2010, we were called in to the home of a young woman whose husband was serving overseas in the military.

Our client was a very level-headed woman with a 9-year-old daughter. She had managed to keep her experiences from her daughter but the client was understandably paranoid when she saw a shadow in the bathroom while she showered and heard voices in her upstairs office and in her daughter’s room. Constantly feeling like she was being watched was not helping her feel comfortable while her husband was away and four months from his return home, she had hit her breaking point.

We spent several hours investigating her home and even though we found no hard evidence of the paranormal (no EVPs or photographic/video evidence) our client was heartened knowing she had a group of people who understood her situation and didn’t scoff at her experiences.

As with most clients, we told her that any time she felt uncomfortable, to talk to whatever was there and let it know she didn’t appreciate the invasion of her privacy. Our client didn’t ask for a follow-up investigation and when contacted recently by our group to see how she was doing, we discovered she had moved to another state, her husband was home, and all was well.

Sometimes, when we don’t find evidence to take back to a client to prove to them that, YES THIS IS TRULY HAPPENING TO YOU!, we as paranormal investigators feel kind of useless. Aren’t we here to help? And by help we mean Here are these awesome Class A EVPs that blew our socks off! Rather, what we have found is that by just being there, talking, accepting, and not turning our backs, we are being extremely helpful.

About Heather S. Dobson

I wish I was Wonder Woman, but I'm actually a wife, mother of three young ones, a writer, a paranormal investigator, and a lunatic. I'm also hoping to win a Nobel Prize in physics, but I guess that means I should get something above a BS in said subject and do more in-depth, life-changing studies besides "the sticking power of mac 'n cheese on smooth wallpaper." Alas...

    I am one of your followers love your things that go bump in the morning I commented on that as almost all my experiences are during the day because that’s when I am there, I just read about your experience with the woman and her 9 year old daughter, and your response, I myself was being touched while painting our bathroom at our rehab house, I don’t remember if I blogged about it but every time I bent over “surprise” I felt what felt like I hand on my bottom at first I thought I was hitting the wall or something but realized I was getting no paint on myself and it happened when there was no wall behind me. I was a little creeped out and I did what you said to her, I talked…. I said “HEY, I think your getting a little to familiar there, so knock it off” and it didn’t happen again. You need to take the upper hand after all it might have been their house at one time but it is my house now.

    • Excellent! I’m glad to hear that you told whatever it was to stop and that it stopped! A lot of our fear of the paranormal can be overcome by just confronting it and letting it know that we don’t appreciate being scared. I think that could apply to anything, really. 🙂 Thanks for reading and sharing your experience!
