Ghost party in my bedroom last night
Hello all,

So last night I was in bed and my husband had just fallen asleep. I started to hear what sounded like very faint radio music (not neighbors, etc.). You could tell that different songs were playing, one after the other. I checked my clock radio, etc. but nothing. I checked everything. This has happened about 3 times in the past since last September. I also have my fan going (every night) because it gets hot in there, nor when it is too quiet.  

During this time of the faint "radio station", I noticed my (new) fan speeding up and slowing down. This does not happen every night with the fan, but some nights it does. The power source is fine. The fan issue can even start off going from high speed to low but then go back to normal speed and stay that way. 

Basically in a nut shell, my room sounded like a party going on from midnight on, between the loud noise of the fan and radio, it was crazy noisy. My ears are fine too, lol. Everything checks out fine. These are very intermittent things that happen at night. Right before I decided to stop reading and go to sleep, I sat all the way up and whispered loudly, "STOP IT!". I heard no more and fell asleep. 

Anyone ever hear faint radio music? What about the fan issues? Mind you--  most of the activity goes on in my bedroom anyways (as I had stated several days ago). 

I am at a loss here. 

Thank you!
No music here that I associated with anything paranormal, but I have heard vague, distance sounds that I took to be music. Usually it sounded like it was off in the distance (and I mean that literally) like maybe it was coming from some houses way off across the pastures of the rural area where I live. I'm sure some of it was just a trick of my hearing.

On the other hand, yes, I've had several people that have heard music that they associated with haunting, from a bank teller that told me that her grandparents basement sounded like music was coming through the wall to a Navy buddy that told me about hearing music when he was a child and his brother worked in an old theater.

Subject: I have a black cat.
Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.

So many EXPLAINABLE causes for the music

You can also find causes for the fan speeding up and slowing down that you can check and fix by cleaning and lubricating the
fans bearings.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

I’ve got no real answer for the fan speed thing, other than to say that I’ve bought new appliances that were defective from the start.  Sometimes you’ve just got to return an item and get a new one.

As to the music, I think I can provide more information.
For context, I am an extremely light sleeper; The slightest noise will wake me.  I also hate silence.  It makes me feel claustrophobic.  So basically, I have a box fan running 24/7.

I occasionally hear music, ever so slightly, ringing in my ears while in bed… not loud enough to make any sense of it, but sometimes it has a rhythm and there is definitely a voice in there somewhere.  At first, I thought it was my over-active imagination.  Then I started to wonder… not too seriously, but maybe my little ghost friends were a demon in disguise and it was trying to speak to me.  Whatever the cause, it kept me from much needed sleep.

Then, one day, I heard it from afar, at my desk.  Distinct, yet ‘off over there’ towards my bed.  I was able to narrow it down to coming from one corner of my loft.  My first thought was ‘Woohoo!  No demons in my head!’  Not that I ever seriously considered the idea.  Then I tried to narrow it down further… listening intently, it was not coming from my TV, nor my DVD player or cable box, not Alexa… the only other thing even vaguely electronic over there was my box fan.  So, I Googled ‘box fan’ and ‘radio.’

I’m not an electronics nerd, so I can’t properly explain the hows and whys, but this is apparently a fairly common phenomenon.  The basic gist is that metal can pick up radio wave vibrations and oscillate to vaguely replicate the sounds being broadcast over the radio.  And thinking back to my youth, I remembered hearing urban legends of people picking up radio broadcasts through their braces or tooth fillings.  Apparently, it’s an actual ‘thing.’  People think God is talking to them when, really, it’s just an AM broadcast picked up on their silver fillings.

If you want more detailed information on the matter, just Google ‘box fan radio’ and you’ll get a plethora of links.

One of the details I feel many paranormal investigators leave out is the question of ‘why?’  They’re always caught up on proving ghosts exist and rarely think to question whether or not it even makes sense for a spirit to do the thing being attributed to it.  Why would a ghost mess with the speed of yr fan?  Why would a ghost try to communicate with someone through EVPs that require expensive equipment and hours of work to decipher a single word or phrase?  That seems an awfully inefficient means of communication.  For that matter, what did spirits do before electronics were invented?  Wait for a thunderstorm and try to talk through lightning?  It just doesn’t pass the logic test.

Now, the knocking you described in a prior post… I can see that.  It makes sense.  Perhaps a spirit was trying to convey a message of some sort.  Maybe a warning, maybe reassurance.  Maybe even just, ‘I seem to be stuck here and it’s freakin’ lonely, thanks for the company.’  From my Christian standpoint, spirits can’t directly communicate with living souls, they have to work through signs.  Again, not terribly efficient, but at least it’s straight forward.  It doesn’t require special tools to be heard and is within their given skill set.  It passes the logical consistency test.

I see nothing here that screams ‘paranormal.’  I’m not saying that there isn’t a ghost rave in yr bedroom… it would certainly be more true to the original concept of a ‘rave…’  but any paranormal investigator worth her or his salt would rule out non-paranormal explanations first.  This situation just has too many ‘normal’ explanations and too few (logical) paranormal explanations for me to jump to the conclusion of ‘Charzy’s bedroom is haunted.’  I’m not saying there isn’t a spiritual presence there… the knocking thing definitely piques my interest and my concern.  I would love to hear more.   But the fan?  The music?  Totally explainable.

Have you tested the fan to see if it does the same speeding up/slowing down during the day?
 The woods are lovely, dark, and deep but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.

As far as knocking noises you can track down the sounds which again can have so many NON paranormal causes. This site helps find the many possibilities by using some of the sound log sheet.

Hello Mika,
Once again, I truly appreciate you telling me about your experiences and some of the "debunks" in my situation. I too, have heard about the box fan situation (and fillings) possibly picking up radio stations every so slightly, as I had done some research once my fan situation started happening.

I suppose I should have told you the whole situation. The speeding up and slowing down has happened with 3 different fans over the past 5 months or so. Our first fan was a box fan that we had for a couple of years. The reason we got rid of it was because of the up/down speed issue. Not to mention the it made a whirring sound and was annoying (from being old I presume). After we tossed that one, we immediately borrowed an oscillating fan out of our guest room. Same thing happened with the speeds. Then we started wondering if maybe we should rule-in electrical issues. Nope-- no issues, as we had it checked. We did notice that we had an old extension cord that it was plugged into, so we tossed that too, but it didn't help. We finally bought a new (oscillating) fan for our room and the same issue. Some of the things that cause me to question now are, why did every fan have that issue and why when it happens do I feel a presence or an "energy" in my room? Why does this fan issue only happen when my husband is asleep or when he is gone or out of the room? When the fan speeds up, it truly feels like a wind in my room-- not a breeze. So basically, the fan issue is not a constant issue. I have even had my husband stay awake or come into the room but nothing-- same speed (low) the whole time. The kicker here is-- I work in my home office which too has a fan. Same issue. It is quite annoying because when I am on a conference or video call, it happens. It has never happened when my husband was in there alone and on his calls for work. So, that is why I feel it is more than just a defective fan or electrical issue. As far as the music (radio station, not harp like in the past)-- it also is intermittent and had only happened 3 times now-- one includes the other night.

I have been in 3 hour long video calls over the past week. Every damn time I shut the door in the office and talk to my client, something has happened in there each time. First time was a loud pound on the wall a few feet from me. Second time was something that sounded as if a book hit the wall behind me (sound of pages too) but nothing to be found when I looked after my call. The last time was a few days ago. I turned the fan on low to have some background noise since my husband was home and sometimes makes noise. I turned it to low. The speed issue happened and then there was a startling loud click from the fan behind me. I actually jump. Strange thing is, after session, I went over to the fan to try and figure out if it slipped or if it was a button or was tilted. I tried to create the same click noise but there was nothing-- but it did indeed come from the fan. I now hate going into the office.

There has been more activity in other ways as well. I have NEVER believed in spirits/ghosts/paranormal until the past month or so. I was actually touched by something when my husband was out of town last (2 weeks ago) when I was going to the door to take my dogs out. I felt something touch me on my lower back (love handle area, lol). It truly scared me but I went on with my night.

I realize I shouldn't be communicating with this "spirit" or "ghost". I do feel a presence quite often. I have a very good and clear digital audio recorder and have picked up at least 10 EVP's now. I do have the clips of them and sent them to the Paranormal team that is coming next month. They said there was definitely a response from whatever it is (sounds like a lady). It had been a week since I heard any voices on my recorder-- absolutely nothing. Last night I decided to go into my bedroom (most activity is in there) and asked, "Why are you here?". I got a response but it talked over me. It truly sounds like it is a legit answer but I wouldn't know for sure. I spent hours trying to find a wave audio editor so I could separate my voice and "hers". I found several but have no idea how it works. I wish I could hear the response, but I can here that there was one that said something over me.

The "voices" I am hearing are mostly from the same "spirit"/"ghost". I have gotten EVP's from several different rooms as well. I have had others hear them on my recordings (as well as knocks and fan). I would love to find a way to put a couple of my audio clips on here for you to hear (if you'd like).

I know that many people tell/would tell me to not communicate with it, but I don't feel threatened at all, or any negative energy. I actually feel like whomever it is wants something or needs help (maybe crossing over?). My grandmother passed not long ago, so maybe? I don't know. I just know there is something here and I have clips to prove it. I am not saying you don't believe me, but there is truly something here and it has been for the past month or so.

Yes. I do know there are knocks and clicks from frozen pipes/heat vents. I know which walls the pipes are behind. They knock/click when someone showers and does laundry, etc. I also know that those sounds can travel to other walls. 

The knocks I am talking about are pounds and some have a particular rhythm (like knuckles rolling on the wall). I have that audio recorded as well. Total different knock than the pipes. There are no critters, etc.
