"Has your wife had experiences in her past? And when you’re traveling for work, has she had experiences at home like the one you had with the basement door and footsteps up and down?"
Yes, Jennifer has had past experiences. She was raised in a much more open and accepting environment than I was. Her mother and aunt would use Ouija Boards and have sceances which lead to her hearing voices and seeing unexplained things. Jennifer is also very sensitive to smells and will smelled things when others don't.
One particular incident happened when her aunt passed away a few years ago. Jennifer went to Texas for the funeral. During the service, she said that she was overwhelmed with the smell of her aunt's perfume; like she was sitting right next to her. She said she could actually feel her presence.
Jennifer will also smell her father at times. Either cigarette smoke or his after-shave.
As for her experiencing things while I'm traveling, yes, there has been incidences. Lights have turned on and off, things go missing, things will move on their own.
While I was out of town one time, she said that the blinds in the living room started to rattle and then would open and close. She felt like it was someone trying to look outside the window.
She has also seen shadow figures walking around the outside of the house. She saw one that walked past the living room windows and then around to the front side walk. When she went outside to see who it was, no one was there.
These are just a few of the things that she has experienced. I will get her to write about her experiences and also elaborate on the ones that I mentioned.
