3 Visits To Canyon De Chelley by naturestacey

The first time I went to Canyon de Chelley, I went to 3 or 4 overlooks on the north rim. Each and every time I stepped out of my vehicle, I had overwhelming feelings of despair... And death. It made me feel horrible and didn't know why I was feeling that way. I drove over to the south rim and I had ...

This took place in my apartment in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. It was almost 7pm, and I had to go get my boyfriend from work at 8.

I'm Sorry I Died by Miracles51031

Sherm784 submitted a story a couple of days ago that made me want to share my experience.

Female Spirit Guardian by allforlaughter

To be honest, I'm not sure if she's my "spirit guardian" or if that's even the real word for it. I don't know who she is at all or why she's been with me for so long. I only know she's a positive force, and I'd do almost anything for my hair to be the same auburn as hers. I grew up in an actively...

Hair Getting Tugged by msecrose

Was It Chester? by sherm784

I had a huge scare at work today. I was in the middle of a business call when I clearly heard someone whisper my name right behind my ear. I sit right in front of an older coworker.

I Think I Punched A Ghost by Bradyv32

Last night (August 6, 2017) as I was laying in my bed at about 11:30, setting my alarm on my phone, with the lights off, I thought I saw something move out of the corner of my eye.

Two Incredible Saves by RedWolf

One is actually broken, these screws are about 1/4 inch thick. I have bad scoliosis, one of my ribs is touching one of the ve...

Aunt Sylvie's Computer Pranks 2 by valkricry

That title is a bit misleading, as this is about the summer I met my 4 x great Aunt and happened long before she played games with my computer; but I'm hoping it helps flag out the correlation of the two. Not so much for the readers of this, but for Aunt Sylvie. I know that reads rather awkward, but...

The Voices That Saved My Life by Faith1990

Prior to the following experience, I wouldn't hesitate to blame some doofus move on my part on the "voices" I hear in my head. "The voices made me do it!" That was such a funny thing to say.

Scary Internet Experience by mel8763

When I first started using the internet a few years ago, I was amazed at all the different websites that were available to look at.

Go Away! You Can't Have Him! by Miracles51031

I always hesitate before sharing something that is out of the norm, at least for me. This is another one of those moments. A few years ago, the teenage son of a family I know was in the hospital.

Aunt Sylvie's Computer Pranks by valkricry

A few months back, I thought to write about my meeting my 4x great Aunt Sylvie, a witch, who lived in the foothills of Kentucky. I'm speaking in the traditional sense of the word witch.

The Kinder Classroom by Kest

I have had to spend some time thinking about how I wanted to begin the next chapter of ghost experiences in my life.

Unreal Death - Possession Or Self Inflicted? by nalchen

So. I wanted to save this story for later. The reason being, I was contemplating whether I should write it or not.

Mothers Final Visit? by buzz073042

The Witch Of Dittmar by Anny82

I don't know if you believe in god. I can't even truly be sure of that question myself. What I am sure of is that there are forces, things, or entities out there that we do not understand.
