    1. I was working as security in what was her bed room and I always felt like somebody was there and I was never alone even though there were no other live being in the room. Then one night I felt a hand on my shoulder and when I turned around nobody was there and right after that I heard humming and smelled lavender.

      I was there in broad daylight and the moment I went out to the terrace, I immediately felt something. I instantly turned around to look at the balcony. That’s where I felt something might be lurking there…

      My son and I went today to look at some art and we we’re fine until we started walking upstairs and immediately my son and I started feeling dizzy and disoriented and it got stronger as we walked into the room with her jewelry at the top of the stairs. Really weird because as we walked away from the room it started to desepate but when we walked back the dizziness and disorientation started again. Now I don’t know if that’s paranormal or not but one thing for sure is that I’ve never felt like that,after we walked back downstairs my son felt extremely drained and we had to leave. I will be returning soon.
