What are the symptoms of a haunted house?

1. Introduction

Spiritual research done by SSRF has revealed that most houses around the world have negative vibrations due to various causes. Refer to – What measures can one take to spiritually cleanse one’s house or environment of a haunting? These negative vibrations attract ghosts and our departed ancestors causing the house to be haunted. The ghosts and departed ancestors haunting the house invariably cause distress to the residents.
