One woman from Blackpool, England has been living a life straight out of a movie plot from Paranormal Activity with mysterious movements and events happening in her home.
A 33-year old and mother of four, Donna Ayres originally from Burnley, Lancashire is being regularly visited by a spirit she believes to be her dead brother. The reunion would have been pleasant except these visits are more of hauntings.
Donna, her children, and her 45-year old live-in partner Jason Heys had already moved residences a whooping five times since 2009 due to experiencing mild to violent hauntings from a spirit that won’t seem to leave them alone.
“I believe this is happening because death has always followed me, but I have strong suspicions the spirit could be my brother, who died when I was younger.”
Donna had been documenting her experiences for the last three months in a desperate attempt to reach out to others who might be able to help her situation. The videos document the movement of different household items and furnishing – from spoons and cups moving from one place to another to the violent swinging of a chandelier.
Watching the videos on her YouTube channel, one can get a sense of how terrifying her everyday life seems but according to Donna, those are nothing compared to what actually happens when the camera isn’t rolling.
“Probably the worst time was when I was pinned to the bed, I’ll never forget it – it was very traumatic,” Donna said while recalling an incident she experienced that was particularly harrowing.
Donna’s brother Paul passed away in 2009 and a few months after that she started to experience paranormal activities starting with loud bangs and scratches appearing on walls at night. Even after changing residences the paranormal activities continued in every house she lived in and ever since she started recording with her camera phone and posting the videos online, the hauntings became even more common and rampant leading Donna to believe that she has angered the spirit.
When asked why Donna believes her brother is responsible for these eerie activities, “Given the rocky relationship with my brother, I genuinely believe this ghost is haunting me, not just the house which I live in, which is the most terrifying thing,” she said.
The videos have been garnering attention online with both skeptics and believers weighing in on each of the clips. Some have argued that the videos are obvious fakes achieved by moving items with nylon lines but the respected organization of Sefton Paranormal has stated that the footages are all genuine and Donna’s experiences can be classified as Poltergeist activities.
Donna’s answer to naysayers saying her videos are fakes, “It’s hard to get the footage as sometimes the paranormal activity is too quick to film, but I think I’ve done well to catch what I have with a basic camera phone.”
