My Haunted Chair by AngelinaM

This story starts about 7 years ago. We just moved into a new house, that needed so much work. When one of the walls were taken down there was the most unusual and beautifully carved chair back, at first I thought it was a frame to a mirror. As the weeks passed, we came across a boarded up stora...

I am a 35 year old married mother of two children. We live in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where we moved with my in-laws about six years ago.

Our Full Moon Visitor by pspalko

Back in the beginning of May 2015, my husband and me decided to take in the full moon and try out our new fire pit in our backyard.

The Demonic Face Of The Queen Mary by Jamie87

I've never been one to jump to conclusions about the paranormal. I always debunk before assuming an orb or blurry mist is a ghost on camera. That being said, there is no mistaking the photo captured when I went on the ghost tour on the Queen Mary. My boyfriend and I went on this tour expecting nothi...

Accidently Conjured A Spirit by liv_sunset

Up to this point in my life I don't really remember seeing or sensing any thing paranormal. So...When I was 14 I decided to get a library card for something to do during the summer. I am an only child, few friends and just generally would rather stay in and read. I did the usual young teen sto...

Disappearing And Reappearing Diamond Pendant by BeagleMom

This is really not a ghost story, but rather an unbelievable occurrence. I received a diamond and white gold pendant from my husband to celebrate our first wedding anniversary back in 1967. Years later, while my hubby was deployed to Guam during the Vietnam "Conflict", I had it on and was shoppi...

Old Farmer Or Slave? by 2drgns

I've never considered myself to be sensitive to ghosts or spirits and I've never held a firm believe in whether they exist or not but I have always considered myself to be objective. The events that have taken place since moving to our current home have led me to think I'm not alone here. In 2...

My Kids And The Ghost by mark

Its been awhile since I wrote a story, mostly because I was so busy with life and having two little kids running around the house.

The Shadow Stalker by JethroJ133

My whole life I've had something following me. At first I would just feel a presence around me but as I got older it worsened. I was 11 when I had my first actual contact with the entity.

Growl, Tap, Slam by queenpashon

Be Careful Of The Ghosts That Follow You Home by NikkiB

I truly enjoyed the Lawrenceville Ghost Tour on October 31st. Our tour guide Manny Moonshine was excellent. I wish I would have known I would actually have events now happening in my house.

Through The Veil by Hollyhock

Behind my grandma's house, there is a woods with a creek. Usually, it dries up in the summer. Last summer, I went to go look at it. I didn't go into the woods too far, just slightly off the path.

In 1992 I lived alone in an apartment and adopted a cat named Jasper. He lived for 15 years before dying of old age. He was my only pet during that time.

Children Sense It Better by KoopaCake

To this day, I'm not sure if I've been able to project my nightmares straight into my room as I awaken while I am coherent enough to talk to anyone who may be with me nearby or I actually saw ghosts in my childhood home but what I saw and heard felt so real. When I was really little my parents would...

Demonic Encounter? by moondog

Late one night my insomnia got the better of me and after hours of tossing and turning I gave up and came downstairs to make coffee.

My Dog Knew by KoopaCake

When I was younger my family would move from house to house quite often. When I was around 14 my mother, sister and I moved into a rental home in a small gated community near Sarasota, Florida.

Stalker Clad In Black 2 by DirtCreature

I notice that most of my experiences happen around the evening.

Last Summer I was down in San Diego taking a class for my job. One night a couple of buddies of mine decided to do one of those Ghost Tours down in Old Town San Diego.

Motel 6 And Anna by WintersAzazel

In my early teens, I began seeing spirits. Maybe I had been seeing them before, and simply brushing them off as figments of my overactive imagination, but all I know is my early teens is when I remember them really becoming noticeable. They started off as blurs barely distinguishable from the co...

To start out my friends and readers... I can say my sensitivity started when at 5 days old I had a 50/50 chance at living, a gift and a curse now 36 years old I don't call myself a psychic or medium...

12 Years Of Fear by pagankitty321

When I was around eight, my family moved to into an average house, with three bedrooms, one bath, and a basement. Like most children in a new house, I had trouble sleeping that first night.

Aggressive Shadow Man by BrittBass01

All my life I've been able to see paranormal entities. Well I've been seeing shadow men for a while and never thought anything of it. I've never felt threatened by them.

My Step Dad Passing And Picture by chelscp11

3 years ago I remember I was on my way to costco and I couldn't shake this feeling I was having. It was as if something horrible happened but nothing had happened.

My Disappearing Friend by Allicatt

The Gift Of Knowing There Is An Afterlife by Rudyd

My True Story. I have experienced five supernatural events through the power of The Supreme Source, not sure if I should say through the power of God so I chose the Supreme Source.

For several months, I worked at a preschool. When I first started working there, another teacher-lets call her Annie-told me the school was haunted.

Manderson House by Bringel

As I've explained in my other stories I'm extremely skeptical when it comes to the "paranormal". I usually brush things off as being weirdly coincidental but there's a part of me that is curious.

Spirit Coming Into You/being Born And The Black Figure by themurph

It's been awhile since I posted anything and this one event puzzles me. What's the first thing you remember being alive or earliest memory?

Spirits In Our Home by BigBen2Mac

This is probably a pretty common story for this site, but not for us. I'll try to be as specific as I can, but most of this is about my wife's experience (s), and she just doesn't want to talk about it or relate to this site. Not because she doesn't believe in the spirit world, she just believes tha...

The Selvidge Ghost by cheercat

It was my first day in middle school. I remember being super eager to talk to everyone and make as many new friends as possible.

Creepy Shadow Figure by Desertmoon

As a kid I had often been afraid of things that go bump in the night. I remember this happening ever since my parents had divorced back in 1965 when I was 4 or 5 years old, and my mom was raising my younger brother and I as a single mom. Maybe the divorce made me insecure and frightened of things in...

This story takes place in Sumner, Washington in the year of 2001. I was only fifteen at the time that I experienced my first real and close up encounter with the shadow people.

Turned Around by Sanchez_92

To begin with this story, I want to let you guys know this occurrence happened when I was around 10 years old.

Visitors From The Other Side by melomelo

What would you do if you woke up in the middle of the night and saw a spirit? The first time I saw a spirit, I didn't know who they were or how they got in our house, so it was a little eerie. They visit so frequently now that it no longer surprises me. My mother had a great interest in the ...

New Vistors? by Mannerizms

Merry Meet all, I apologize again, for being so long since my last encounter shared. I am currently trying to figure out what is going on in my new home.

Haunted Cabin In Pigeon Forge, Tn by snowboarder300

This story takes place in February of 2001 just outside of Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg, TN.

My dad and I love going to antique stores. Sometimes I'm just drawn to certain items. Once, we went to a new antique store and I went one way to look at a certain booth while he did his own thing.

Fairies... Maybe? by Briannalynn

Miscellany by SomeCallMeTim

My Friend Billy Part 2 by RedWolf

Thank you all who read my first story. As I said I had tried more than a dozen times to write that story. It didn't matter whether I used my tablets or my P.C. The story would disappear.

Body Vibrating Upon Waking During A Nightmare by Justjess

A few months ago I had awoke from a nightmare and my body was vibrating as if I had a cell phone in my chest.

The Ice Cream Truck Makes A Return Visit by yomomma

It's happening again. I knew when I started writing my stories down, going through them in my mind, talking about them, acknowledging things that happened in the past, that somehow it would make them strong again.

The Night I Met Maria by yomomma

February 22, 1993 at 2:01 p.m., I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I had morning sickness the entire pregnancy. I gained only 11 pounds which put me in the high risk category.

The Disappearing Doll by GinaFowler

Realizing as a teen that the house I grew up in was haunted, this is my earliest memory of an occurrence that, as a child, I didn't understand.

My Apartment Was Very Active by AndiKate81
