Paranormal Phenomena/ringing of disconnected bell

Question
During the morning on New years eve (just gone)I talked to my mum who died in 2010 and asked her to let us know she was around us. That evening around 5pm an old type bell with a little hammer that has been left fixed above our kitchen door since we moved here 13 years ago started ringing. My 20 year old daughter was in the kitchen too. It is disconnected and was once a door bell way before we came. It has never made any sound before. I had no idea how to stop it ringing, in desperation I called out to mum to stop the bell. It stopped. I said to my daughter why do these things happen when my son Michael isn't here, he will never believe us. Later around 7pm when Michael returned home from work, we stood in the kitchen while he poured a beer and I related what happened. He didn't believe me and with that the bell rang again for a short time and stopped. He almost spilt his beer in shock. Could it have been mum wishing us a happy new year?

Answer
Quite possibly. Several psychics talk about ghosts passing over and becoming pure spirits then coming back for a visit to reveal their presense. It's not like a haunting with activity going on for months or years; it's considered a visitation (at least by me) when a spirit that has passed over reveals it to its loved ones -

I`ve been reading books about ghosts for a long time and have seen numerous movies about them as well. I can point out what is more likely, what is unlikely and site true examples from the subject. I have also been writing fictional ghost stories off and on since high school. I have been keeping a comprehensive listing of haunted sites for a long time and have visited a few local haunted sites in my area. I do not consider myself a ghost hunter or ghost researcher. I have no college or univerity training in the subject, but I have postulated a few personal theories about the phenomenon. I recently published the book, "Volunteer Ghosts," about ghosts in Tennessee. Another thing, because ghost shows are becoming so popular, I'm getting deluged with messages from people thinking they have ghosts. Please try to bust your own experiences before asking me about them. So many people who believe in ghosts and experience things want proof so much that they are coming to me for answers. Please check your grammar and proofread your messages too. I can't understand what you're asking if your questions aren't legibly precise. Don't make me try to decipher your message. Keep your messages short and to the point! Do not post long rambling inquiries! I do not know anything about demonology; no questions about evil spirits or possession. That has nothing to do with ghosts or haunted houses.

Experience

I have had very brief exposure in doing field work; I hope to get back into it someday.
