The Haunting of Laura – A Poltergeist Story

07 February 2018 | January 2018, Your Stories

Traumatic events can sometimes trigger poltergeist activity, but for one young girl, the torment seemed to have no end

It is currently theorized that poltergeist activity arises out of the subconscious of a living person, called an agent. This agent, very often a young girl, usually is known to be under some kind of stress, whether it is emotional, physical or psychological. By some mechanism that is still unknown to science (and paranormal researchers), this inner stress can manifest as phenomena outside the agent.

The case of Laura B. might very well qualify her as a poltergeist agent. As a young girl she suffered the anguish of an alcoholic father, who often lashed out in violent anger. It’s not surprising, then, that Laura was terrified of her home’s basement at night, since that is where her parents’ bedroom was. “The creepy feeling in my basement intensified as his alcoholism and addictions grew worse,” Laura says, “and I would refuse to go into my parents’ room for any reason. There was always a negative feeling in the room, but I always attributed that to my dad.”

Evil in itself is not paranormal, and we can easily understand why Laura would get negative feelings from that room. About five years ago, however, her parents divorced, and that’s when the line began to be crossed into the unexplained — when the poltergeist activity began.
