A Feng Shui Haunting on Long Island New York
I've been reading many stories of Hauntings...it's Halloween, after all. As a New York Feng Shui Consultant, I have seen my share of homes which my clients claim are haunted---and I never doubt them. ALMOST never doubt them....
Please note: This is a True Story with a former client. I am not showing pictures of his home or sharing his name or even his town out of respect for privacy.
One day I received a call from "Sam." He sounded like a very nice gentleman who lived on Long Island and was advised to call a Feng Shui Consultant by his therapist. Red flag? I wasn't sure but continued to listen to his story.
He had purchased his home three years ago-and hadn't had ONE full nights sleep since the day he moved in. He had lights constantly flickering in the kitchen despite three electricians. He also heard noises, his door to his bedroom opening, to be exact. Though he could see the door from his bed and it WASN'T opening, he'd heard it over and over, every night.
For some reason I was a bit leery to go on this consultation by myself. He lived in the house with his child and was going through a divorce. I asked a friend of mine who is a Certified Social Worker if they would go with me and I asked my client if he would be allowed to come as well.
We arrived at his home in Anytown, Long Island to find a well mannered, educated, well dressed man who I could tell was somewhat apprehensive as well. Prior to his therapist, he's never HEARD of Feng Shui he said. His home was lovely, well furnished and thought out with his child's artwork and hobbies displayed throughout.
He told us that he and his soon-to-be ex wife had purchased the home three years ago. She had at the time, an as yet undiagnosed mental condition which they thought to be bipolar Bipolar disorder - MayoClinic.com. Almost from the day they moved in, she got considerably worse and her eventual diagnosis was paranoid schizophrenia. As she became worse, so did the house, he claimed. The lights were flickering more often and the noises were almost intolerable.
At first he believed he had electrical problems due to the flickering but no one that he called was able to stop it. His wife eventually got to the point where she believed there were cameras installed in the home and she began putting up paper and tin foil on all the windows. He cared a great deal about his wife but was too concerned for his child to allow this to continue and she was finally removed from the home.
I felt very sad for him and knew he was speaking from his heart; this was obviously very difficult for him but I believed him about the noises AND the lights started flickering while we were in the kitchen. He was so relieved to have others see it as well! As we were touring the home, I noticed all the doors to the rooms were closed off down a long hallway.
He walked ahead opening each door to allow us inside until we reached one of the doors. I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO OPEN THAT DOOR and didn't know why....I am so careful to try not to allow a client to see me react to something but in this case I couldn't help it and almost involuntarily stepped back. Both he and my friend noticed.
I got chills without knowing why when he explained It was his ex-wife's former room, still filled with her things. The energy was so intense it was difficult for me to stay there very long. I couldn't quite figure it out---what was going on with this HOUSE?
