The Mist of Ward Essex by JPing

Those of you who are familiar with my posts may know me to be a somewhat skeptical person of the supernatural, especially when it comes to supposed photographic evidence. So you will appreciate the irony of what I am about to show you. Some weeks before my encounter I was informed by a friend an...

My Mom by marijun

August 12th 2000. It was evening, and we were waiting for bad news to ring on our phone. It was something that we were expecting, from the time it was first diagnosed, earlier that year. The phone rang at about 9pm that night. She had passed away quietly with a nurse aid by her side. At least she wa...

Huddled Together by demonboy

I'm back again with another experience, its been some time but this one wasn't as spine chilling as my other ones, this one to me seems as if relatives were trying to get my attention. I was deep asleep when my English home work pages were swept to the floor of my homework desk. I didn't want to los...

Headache of a Paranormal Kind by marijun

This event happened early in 2007. As a member of Couples for Christ, one of our obligations is to attend weekly meetings with our household group. In short, each couple within our group would take turns to host these weekly meetings, where we would gather, pray, and read a scripture from the bible....

Pet Coming to Say Goodbye by FashionZombies

Now, I've read a lot about ghost stories. I used to have an obsession a few years back with them. And from what I've read, a few factors of it point to a ghost. I'm not a hundred per cent sure whether it was a ghost although I can't think of anything else it could have been. I guess I'll leave it up...

Feelings of Dread and Orbs by marijun

Four nights ago, my husband and I went to bed quite late, around 12:30am. I guess we both dozed off as soon as our heads hit the pillow. I was suddenly awakened. Thinking it was time to wake the children to get ready for school, I checked the mobile phone for the time, and it was only 2:58am. Jus...

Something in the Atmosphere by marijun

Feeling relaxed and confident that the children were fast asleep I decided to have my fare share of net surfing while I could, at 11pm. Hubby was out back in his workshop doing some last minute maintenance on our 1991 Toyota Torago. Roaming a few sites I ended up on Friendster, a network site and a ...

Sickly Spirit by harvestmoon

I moved into a house in Trafalgar, Victoria that was over 100 years old, which is old by Australian standards. When I first moved in I was pregnant with my daughter and my sister stayed with me for for a few months while our parents went on a trip around Australia. I did hear a few weird things w...

To Believe or Not to Believe by marijun

Ever since I was a child, my mother would tell me of our family's experiences with ghosts or run-ins with spirits. My grandpa, for example, have had his fare share of run-ins since he was a child in the Philippines. When he was about 6yrs or 7yrs, he would accompany his father to the local church at...

Evil Spared Us by demonboy

Some of you know me, I'm back with an update. It began as soon as I arrived at my friends house for the night. I could feel an entity, nor good nor bad, or it was too powerful for me to feel. So, me and my friend loved ghosts, well I did, my friend was a very skeptic but now he is addicted to ouija....

The Old Man that Stands Near my Bed by Teshiie

Before I tell you my story I would like you not to judge me of my age, as I am only 14. Well, about 2 years ago I moved into a new house not far away from my old house actually. I didn't really like it because the windows are almost standing height. I had never liked my room and still I stay in that...

Pinned Down to Bed by SKerr199

I've been reading some of the stories on here and felt relieved to know that what happened to me was not abnormal. Here is my story. About 15 years ago when I was still living in my family home in Sydney, Australia, there was some strange goings on in my bedroom. It was a very very cold room always....

My First Ghost Hunt Made Me Sick by chuzwuzum

Since my last story I have started ghost hunting in australia to better understand the paranormal. There are only two of us but we are looking for others to join.

Pictures on the Wall by cassie_c

This happened to me and my ex-best mate mid 2006. We lived above a tattoo parlour on the main road of our town. (mind you, that parlour has had nothing but bad things happen to it since it opened. i.e water pipes bursting and electricity cutting out even though every other store's electricity was wo...

To my Lost Siblings by rhodes68

I was born on 5th May after a very difficult pregnancy and an even more difficulty labour that nearly caused both, my mother's and my life. Mum still narrates every minute of it, with tears in her eyes, every chance she gets and I know that she still suffers every time she does. Grandma (when sti...

Unfriendly Follower by jablescanfly

First of all I'd like to start by saying, I don't believe in ghosts. I live in a small mining town called blackwater. My friends and I are considered to be outcasts due to the way we dress and the genre of music we listen to. Most people call us goths or emo. One friday, after school we decided t...

I Heard People Walking by demonboy

This is my second story, my first was Ghost Shouting Out. Well I suggest you read my first story, if not you won't really know much about me, the only thing I can say there is a white face next to my face in my aura when I look in the mirror. This happened the night that I wrote my story. I was l...

Ghost Shouting Out by demonboy

Hello my name is Dom and I live in Australia. I have had a scary paranormal experience, this is which I would like to share with you so I can understand what this was a demon or a ghost, or any unholy thing not from this world. No harm came to me but it was interesting and freaky. It was a late n...

What's in a Dream by whitelight

From the age of 7, I have had what I always assumed to be dreams of dark shadows, they would be beside my bed, and I was and have always been terrified of them. Everything would be just as it was when I went to sleep, so at first I didn't realize I was dreaming. I couldn't move or look away from the...

A Shadow in my TV by Hazel92

This happened about 2 years ago when I was still in year seven, me and my little sister share a room together and this occurred on a saturday night I think, I'm not sure but I do remember the experience quite well, just not the pacific time or day.

Pinned to my Bed by Jenna

I am in desperate need for even the slightest bit of an explanation to an odd experience I had the other morning. I have always been very open to the ideas that ghosts and spirits are very real, and admittedly I have recently started getting more into tarot and such, however nothing as blatant as th...

I Am Der Teufel by JPing

Recently I have taken an interest in seances and have been doing some research into how best to conduct one. The first thing I thought of was, of course, an ouija board. Not knowing how to use one, or even where to get one, I browsed various web sites including Castle of Spirits as well as this one ...

Our New Grandmother by Jo

I have a little trouble remembering specifics of this experience as I was young and have tried very hard not to remember them over the years as well! This took place in Brisbane, Queensland and my relatives still live in the house today. I was about 10 when my aunty and uncle and my two younger c...

Mum's Experience by Miss_Codi_47

I'm telling this story on behalf of my mum. Believe me, my mum doesn't tell lies and she isn't one for making up crap about ghosts. She told me this story after I had told her about somebody coming to me. John (mum's dad) died before my sister, who is mum's first child. Mum was pregnant with her...

My Nan by Miss_Codi_47

My nan died when I was a few months old. So I never actually met her. One night I was asleep when I heard my name being called out, I woke up with a fright.

Night Time Visitors by Kwazimoto

When I was young boy living in Australia I was a very light sleeper, very sensitive, too. If someone entered my room while I was asleep they would wake me up even if they were trying to be quiet.

Entity Laying Next to Me by Covah

Apparition at Time of Death by JPing

This story isn't mine, it is my great grandfather James', who told my grandfather, who told my father, who told me.
