There was a very dark energy there. There was poison ivy (the warrior plant) in the back that was incredibly powerful. Many things happened that I won't list but 16 close friends reported seeing, feeling, sensing something very dark.
I prayed and meditated, saged the place, etc, and the dark energy cleared by the time I sold the place. I meditated on the poison ivy and tried to communicate with it's spirit and told it that I was there to protect the place and soon after the ivy disappeared.
Again, this is only my opinion but I think when we are in a dark time, as I was in my relationship, we are open to more darkness.
I communicate with the love of my life every day now through Her gifting me with beautiful white feathers when I need Her, etc. There is no darkness, only sadness right now so at this point I don't worry about the darkness that I Probably invited into my life in the past.
I look forward to getting to know you and read about your experiences. After-death-communication is one of my favourite topics.
About dark and fear-based talks, such as negative hauntings, earth-bound spirits, getting 'stuck' during the transition from this physical plane, and the like... I agree that when we are feeling vulnerable we are more likely to get upset. Based on my own experience, like attracts like, and if we focus on love, compassion, gratitude and hope, we automatically see those aspects in other people, entities and the world around us. Again based on my own experience, I do not believe that evil non-physical realities of any nature are allowed to disrupt our lives unless we deliberately seek them and let them in. I understand we can ourselves have subpersonalities, some of which are may not be in line with the love+compassion+gratitute+hope equation, and I have met a few of mine during some out-of-body experiences almsot 30 years ago. It is helpful to be aware of this, I guess, as it makes it easier to notice and reverse such traits in our everyday life.
