My First Unrelated Apparition by triden07

Last night, 21 September 2014, I was woken up at 10:50PM to the sound of human feet hitting the pavement passage right next to my bedroom window. Given the fact that we have had a vacant house next to us for over 2 years, which now occupies an unclear amount of squatters, the trespassing of stranger...

The Reaper Copy Cat by k0r8i05

Hey all, wanted some answers on this particular experience. I've researched a lot into it but never seem to pin-point an answer. So I was about 8 or 9 years old, we had tiny holy statues that were placed above the fireplace on a little board. One was of Mother Mary holding baby Jesus in her arms....

Telephone Line 2 by triden07

Strange Lights In The Sky by Fergie

The following experiences are NOT spooky or scary, but, for me, extremely puzzling. Perhaps one of our esteemed readers can help shed light on them for me. Three times in my life, I have seen unexplained lights in the sky. Each time it was during daylight hours. Each time, I had at least one witn...

Not Worth Remembering by snoopy21

I'm new to this site so please be gentle. My aunt once told me a story of my grandmother who could see spirits (or whatever you want to call it) and that her children could see them too. My aunt never wanted to see them although she could definitely hear them and my mom always blocked them out. I...

A Scary Night by confusedandscared1985

A Haunting In Male Ward by Jellytot

The Haunting In Children's Ward 2 by Jellytot

This is my second story about the children's ward at Ermelo Hospital, South Africa in the early 80's Again it was when I was working night duty.

The Haunting In Children's Ward by Jellytot

I was a student nurse at Ermelo hospital in the early 80's and we had to do both night duty and day duty in different wards. I was allocated to do night duty in the children's ward, on the same level as the female ward. Doing night duty in the children's ward, you work all by yourself, unless the...

Mom's Ordeal At The Hospital by Jellytot

The Man In The Grey Suit by RobZi

I actually feel silly as I'm writing this but I just have to know! I personally have not seen spirits or ghosts and judging from the posts that I've been reading I think I may have experienced one or two (or more) encounters with them. However I am posting this because of my mother. Half of my...

The Kind Of Surprise I Like by triden07

As a courtesy to people unfamiliar with my experiences, I will give background on the spirits residing in and around my home.

Oh How My Powers Grow by triden07

Hallo to all my YGS friends! As a courtesy to new readers to my posts, I live in a house containing three spirits. One is a little boy named Adam, who died in the room he now sees as his sanctuary. The second is my Maternal Grandmother, who is a guardian spirit to her daughters (every generation sin...

It Followed Us by dido

I will start with some of the incidents that have been most memorable to me. My mom and dad have been divorced since I was 3, so it was just my mom, sister and I who lived together. I must have been about 12 when we moved into a rented ground floor flat (apartment). At first everything was great...

Pain Has Faded, Touches Return by triden07

To all readers, new and accustomed to my stories, this is about the 2 guardian spirits in my home, Gran and Charlie.

My New Old Home by Hamrammr

My wife and I bought a run-down house about two years ago. It had a nice large yard and established garden with a swimming pool and a one bedroom flat at the back of the yard. For the first year we stayed in the flat while fixing the home. We had quite a few strange occurrences happening in the ...

Dad's Birthday Visit by Fergie

At my age, unless I have something important to get up for, I rarely know what day it is, let alone the date. I need a reminder, either on my phone or on my PC to let me know if it is someone's birthday or if I have an important "date" to keep. In other words, I no longer have a memory - only a "for...

A Crowded Cemetery by Hexotericka

Back in about 2002 I was the lead vocalist of a Gothic rock band, and we regularly played at an Alternative club in Pretoria's mid city. About four blocks from where the club used to be stands an old and rather large cemetery known as the Church Street Cemetery, a portion of which is the historic...

An African Witchcraft Haunting by Hamrammr

This ordeal turned a very religious anti-paranormal family into stern believers! Here it goes. This story happened between 1986/1987. My father bought a farm in the Free State province which the locals called Gapamadi. It is Sotho for "the place where the blood flows". The first week or so e...

Devine Intervention, Or Something Else? by Fergie

Back in January of this year, I had an incident happen at my home. At the time, I wrote it off as non-paranormal; now I am beginning to have my doubts. Recently I read, and "digested" an account written by triden07 called "Intervention". It gave me pause for thought. It must have been some sort o...

Mewoa And The Mystery Man by RoMaNzQ

This happened on Sunday night, 17 November at approximately 9:00pm. A buddy and I were returning from watching a movie and we stopped at a local service station to fill fuel. My buddy (let's call her Serchelle) jumped off the car to get something from the convenient store. I remained in the vehi...

Full Circle by triden07

I would like to start this story off by asking that you read my story "It feeds on panic and fear" - as this story follows that one. As a courtesy to readers unaccustomed to my stories, I live in a house with 3 known entities. One is a little boy called Adam, he is between 4 and 5 years old, and...

Scent Of You by RoMaNzQ

It has been four years since my ex (Robz) passed away. Our relationship began through sheer luck when neither of us were actually looking. The chemistry was undeniable and we were drawn to each other like magnetic poles. It was almost as if the Heavens had opened up and welcomed us on a journey o...

Could It Have Been A Pram? by Charne35

I am new to YGS. I have been reading YGS for a couple of months and I really love all the stories. Although sometimes some of the stories do sound a bit over the top and maybe made up, I guess. I am not sensitive to the paranormal and have the biggest respect for it all and I often wonder if gho...

Black Hooded Woman by liezelleroux

When I was about 20 years old, I went with my boyfriend to his family farm house in Piketberg. It was a very old farm house. They once found an old painting in the attic worth R100 000. One night when I went to bed, I asked my boyfriend to leave on the computer's screensaver for me so it wouldn'...

The Ghosts At Marinda's House by Fergie

Monday 29th October 2012, found us at Marinda's stately home in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. Ray (my hubby) was there to do some carpentry work in their laundry area; I was there just to chat and catch up on events. Ray had picked up a few snags along the way, so we were still there as even...

First Investigation: Conclusion by Nephylim

As per my post "First Investigation", I promised to write up the conclusion of our investigation once my team and I had had a chance to go through the evidence collected. Sifting through, all in all, around 24hrs of hand held video footage, E.V.P sessions and static cam footage, I must say that the ...

Mysterious Lady V by RoMaNzQ

I have always been interested in the paranormal and all things that go bump in the night from a very young age. My parents would never encourage my inquisitive nature and constant questions regarding spirits and weird dreams whilst growing up. Hailing from a pretty conservative background, my mot...

Of Little Boys And Play Dates by triden07

As with my other stories, this is about two of the three spirits in my home. Adam and my maternal grandmother. Adam, the little boy who is bound to the ground, has taken to seeing me as his "mommy". I honestly see him like one of my boys as well. He is so tiny and quiet and shy, he rarely shows h...

First Investigation by Nephylim

So, I am sure most of you have read my past experiences I have posted on this site. Since joining this site my interest in the paranormal has been rekindled and, as a result, I have joined a paranormal investigation team. We have recently been investigating a house in a small complex in my home t...

Khush 08-04-12 by RoMaNzQ

I am a huge fan of this site and I have been reading posts and stories for years. I guess this is why I chose this site to publicly speak out about a very endearing experience I had a year ago. So here goes. I still remember the day as though it were yesterday. I had bought a beautiful Lab/Boer B...

The White-out by Fergie

A good few years ago, maybe twenty or more, my husband and I experienced something which has us baffled to this day. We have no idea if it was paranormal or not - only that it was extremely weird, and so far, nobody can give us a reasonable explanation for. Therefore, I am throwing it out there, in ...

Marius's Unwelcome House Guest by triden07

As a courtesy to readers not familiar with my stories, I live in a house with one spirit linked to the land, a little boy named Adam.

Of Cobwebs And Darkness by Shlain

For those of you who haven't read my story "The Ancient Fort" yet I would advise you to do so as this is an update of that story. The experience I had there happened approximately 3 months ago. For those of you who did read the story you might recall me saying that I didn't want to risk taking pi...

The Apologetic Ghost by zeeburger

In the 70's, as a very young girl of about 4, I had to share a bedroom with my older sister in our house in Main Road, Strand. Many a night I would see these odd monster like "faces" swarming around the room and when it got too bad to handle I would have to pluck up the courage to jump out of my bed...

A Frightening Glimpse Into The Future - I Need Advice by triden07

I have noticed that as my stress levels rise, the spirits around me make their presence clearer. This past weekend, 23 to 25 August 2013, I had more confirmation of this. A friend of mine, J, had been visiting for the weekend. I love having him there, he used to run ghost hunting tours in Pilgrim...

The Crying Baby by suene123

It was 2002, I was 16 at the time and we just moved to a new house in George, South Africa. It was a lovely house with a big shady garden and the first couple of months everything was fine, with no sign of any "activities" to my relief as all our previous houses had "tenants". One Sunday we had u...

Fairy Lights And Black Mass by BattleScars

As a child around the ages of 4 until 9, I would wake up early in the morning and I would always hear whispering in a different language, giggling, a buzzing feeling in my chest. I would also see shades of blue, yellow and green blinking lights. I told my family and they said they were fairies or pi...

Intervention by triden07

To all readers, this is about 2 of my 3 resident spirits, Gran and Charlie. It's funny how the human mind works. Some people are naturally predisposed to be hard and unbending when interacting with others while others, such as myself, are the kind who tend to be too nice. In saying that, I have l...

Ancient Fort by Shlain

This is a story I am excited, yet apprehensive about. This takes place at our Accounting Head Office. This building is massive and in the shape of a perfect square with an inner courtyard of what looks like modern mixed with old cobblestone paving. This inner area is big enough to have roughly 2...

Hospital Carer And False Alarm? by Shlain

The Nun at the Hospital This is an experience that happened to an aunt of mine while she was pregnant with her second daughter. I believe, if I remember correctly, she was in hospital due to feeling unwell and the doctors insisted she stay a few days just to be safe. She was lying in a ward ro...

Hibiscus Coast by sistermary

Many a summers holidays of my childhood were spent at the seaside resort towns of the Hibiscus Coast. When my father retired in 1992, my parents bought a cottage at one of these pretty coastal villages to escape the crime and congestion of the city, with us, their 3 teenage children. Easter, Chri...

Enter The Guardian by Nephylim

As I have already said in my previous post, "Possession, Apparitions and Terror", I went through a period of my life where I had constant encounters with a being that I call the 'Shadow Man'. I would wake up every night with him sitting on the couch in my bedroom watching me. Whether it was him ...

What Is That Smell? by Fergie

As a lot of the "older" members of YGS will know, I seem to have a perchance for smelling odours at sometimes the oddest of moments. My following account is no exception to the rule. It is now towards the end of July (or it was, when I wrote this) - our coldest time of the year - no ants, flies o...

Communication by triden07

To all readers, new and established, this is a story about my most recent experiences with my resident guardian spirits. That would be Charlie and Gran (her name was Allen Mari by the way, and yes, that is her real name, though people who knew her very well called her Monta). Lately I have notice...

Adam by triden07

As most readers/posters may have seen, I made an awesome discovery last week, around 26 June 2013, concerning the little boy ghost in my house, who I have lovingly been calling Kiddo since finding out about him. As an added bonus, I had Valkricry from YGS, as a total bystander, sensing the same thin...

The Ghostly Meow by BattleScars

When I was younger, I lived with my grandparents in a small house. Every afternoon, I would be helping my Nanna peel vegetables or help with making the dinner or afternoon snacks. The kitchen was really tiny, and there was a window to look through into the dining room. Around 4:30 in the afternoon, ...

Something Evil May Be Present by Niki_chaos

For some reason my childhood home scared me. My parents bought another house in town and we moved when I was in high school. My grandparents currently stay in my old home. I am now 21 years old and I heard my parents talking to each other about my grandpa who went ill when they moved into the house....

Possession, Apparitions And Terror by Nephylim

The events I am about to reveal are extremely personal, so bear with me as I try to relive the most terrifying night of my life. (Names have been changed due to the sensitivity of the story.) I was 17 at the time, finishing my last year of school, when my brother, Sean (22 yrs), and his girlfrie...

The Night Of The Ouija by Nephylim

I have always been able to "feel". Since I can remember I have "seen", without my eyes, the creatures, beings and entities that are around us, whether it is a face in the paint on the wall or a shadowy figure in my room. I believe that everyone has some form of psychic ability. I believe myself ...

The Creepy Blue Room In My Grandparents Home by Noenoe

We used to rent my grandmother's house in Bothaville, South Africa. Before we rented the place I stayed at my grandparents home before my parents moved from Germiston (also in South Africa) to Bothaville. It was not really an old house, but creepy as hell! The floors of the house were wooden and not...

Zeus by Fergie

I am casting my mind back to 2009, when my husband and I were given a pair of dogs. They were brother and sister, about a year old. We were told that Zeus and Cleo were Labrador x Rottweiler, although their appearance was of black Labrador. One could see that they had been well cared for as their co...

Hospital By The Sea by sistermary

Working night shift in the Emergency department was always chaotic. I was born, trained at and went on to work as a registered nurse in a massive government hospital situated on the beachfront of a South African coastal city. Built in the late 1800's, upgraded in the 1940's, the once proud and pr...

My Double Or Evil Ghost? by Micky1hay

Let me get straight to the story. I am 21 years old and stay with my parents. I have a two year old son but at the time when this occurred he was only a few months old. Being a new mom you are, most of the time, very drained and all you want is sleep. Well, one night my mom offered to take the ba...

Mother And Daughter by triden07

This story is linked to others in my profile, such as "My frantic Mother & Now we all know". And it's about my mom and her mother, one of our guardian spirits. My mom has had health problems for a few years now. In February this year, she moved to Mozambique with my dad. Seeing as how that area i...

The Boogeyman? by Its-Pixie

I have been a regular visitor to this, I feel comfortable now to share my story with you, this will be the first story I submit. The story I'm about to tell you happened a few years ago, I was 13 at the time, I am 26 now and this still haunts me to this day. I stayed with my parents in a quiet s...

Guess Who's Back by triden07

As a common courtesy to new readers and those not familiar with my stories, this is an account of the three spirits in my home, Gran (my mom's mother), Charlie (a friend of mine) and Kiddo (a little boy who died being burned to death on the property). And the person who has made my interactions poss...

It Isn't Always Imagination by Fergie

Before you begin reading, I would like to post a "Tissue Warning" for all the em-paths. (Before I get a telling-off again!) I have noted with interest, that many folks post stories from their childhood, in which they recall sightings of ghosts or spirits. I have also noted just how many folks cl...

Hellhouse by Jac006

Ever since I can remember I have been prone to feeling psychic energies, the good and the bad. My friends tell me I have the uncanny ability to read people without as much as speaking to them. This ability is especially observed in my mother's family, both an aunt and two cousins have declared to se...

The Mean Old Man With A Coat by ZellaB

This is not a spectacular story but I am very worried about my son. So if anyone can give me any information or advice, it will be much appreciated. My husband, son and myself used to live in a town house, in Port Elizabeth in South Africa. We lived there without any problems for about a year when t...

The Eerie Blue House by Niki_chaos

Let me start from the beginning. I'm Scarlet and as most young adults I wanted my own home. While still living with my parents I started looking for the perfect home that as in my budget. My parents supported me luckily. I would phone the real estate people all the time and would look at houses but ...

A Helping Hand by Adb0423

My mother passed away not too long ago - 19 March 2013 - she was unwell for quite some time. The week before she died she was in hospital - she was living in an old age home. When I got to the hospital they had discharged her, nothing was wrong with her. I decided to take her home with me until t...

Experience With A Demon When My Grandad Died by StormJM

I was about 7 years old living in Worcester (western cape). My Grandad had just passed away and for some reason my mum refused to sleep in any of the bedrooms. We were house sitting that evening! My mum told me that we should sleep next to the fireplace in the lounge cause it was cold, with the ...

Living With A Bad Spirit Or Energy by StormJM

My husband, me and kids moved to a newly built home 2 years ago. Since we moved we had some scary nights... Weird sounds at night and movement downstairs as our bedrooms are upstairs. I told my husband many times that something is really weird and we should consider having our home blessed again....

A Shove In The Right Direction by triden07

As a means to avoid confusion, this post is about my resident ghosties residing in my house, namely Gran, Charlie and Kiddo. On my birthday this year (March 2nd) my oldest friend in the world (Adb0423) and her boyfriend were among the guests. Now, as she has explained in her posts as well, her bo...

Our Girls - It Runs In The Family by Fergie

Last year Easter 2012, we had what we like to call a 'Gathering of the Clan' -- not a large one according to historical events, but our children, and our children's' children, ten members of the family, all under one roof. It felt so good having all of us sitting around in our middle daughter's loun...

My Boyfriend's Dad by Adb0423

My boyfriend has the extraordinary gift/curse of communicating with spirits. Just one of his many gifts! He has the ability to see into your past and feeling your emotions (empathy ability). No doubt he has been richly blessed with all of this. Now, about a month ago (end of January beginning Feb...

Letter To My Dad On His Birthday by Adb0423

Today is the 4th of March 2013, and the day my father would have turned 65 - being born in 1948. Although this is a very sad day for me - he died in June 1999 - I need to share some of my memories of him. He was always young at heart, always ready to pull a prank on people, whether it was his ...

Protectors by triden07

These are a few jumbled events of where I now know we were really being protected. I can say with certainty that I at least have mostly only experienced good ghostly encounters, bar one. I'm truly thankful for that. My younger sister and I had decided this particular weekend in June 2011 to go s...

A Father's Reassurance by Adb0423

Good day. This happened to me in April 2012. I had just broken up with my boyfriend end of Feb 2012 and had moved out of our shared house we lived in with my mother. As breakups went this was not the best, because the reason we had broken up is he had started getting violent towards me, shoving me a...

The Lady From The Cupboard by NessaJ

I am new to this forum, so excuse me if I don't come across clearly all the time. I have had "paranormal" experiences throughout most of my life and have kept it to myself as some people have said to me that I'm "gepla met die duiwel", South Africans will understand those words. To others I think...

Preaching To A Sceptic by triden07

This past Saturday, 16 Feb 2013, I had a friend over to my house. He is your typical non-believer, though he also claims to be completely atheist. Since I have been raised Christian, but rarely go to Church, I don't have a problem with hearing about other cultures, religions, and the people who beli...

Drained by triden07

This happened in the past month (Jan - Feb 2013) After my operation Tim had been in contact with me every day, always starting conversations with, "Did the patient behave today?" After Charlie showed him the flash of me bending over in the kitchen holding my stomach, I'm guessing he and gran were ...

Angel's White Feathers by Fergie

It was the week before Christmas 2012, when I heard my first "Voice", which I believe was not of our plane. I had heard other people tell of "voices", even my hubby Ray, had his own experience, with our beloved daughter Angel. I was slightly envious, I must admit! But, on the other hand, I had, time...

Can A Lot Of Pain Cause This Activity? by triden07

As I have mentioned before, I have been living in my current home since 2005. Gran made sure we bought the house, and I have always felt presences, though they mostly scared the wits out of me. The weird thing for me, my parents bought this house because I had just gotten married and my mom had sepa...

Protective Spirits After Surgery by triden07

I was very sick on Sunday, 6th January 2013, and by Monday I sought out a doctor. By Wednesday I had seen 5. To crown everything, I had to be in surgery on Thursday. I was so scared. Charlie did his best to calm me down, I was in pain, and even little Kiddo braved leaving his sanctuary to walk with ...

Vacation Experiences by triden07

This past December (2012) we set off for Mozambique. Excitement aplenty as we packed the car on the evening of the 14th of December, we would leave 3:00AM on the 15th. Thanks to my aunt, who never fails to make a late entry, we were only on our way at 4:10AM. I drove the first shift. By 7:00AM I was...

1950's Bus Causing Hauntings by Shlain

This is an experience that happened when I was in Standard 2 (Grade 4) in 1992. Our Primary School was divided into 4 buildings. Two of these buildings were double storied and housed the class rooms. The 3rd was our school hall and the 4th was a detached single story building housing the 2nd set ...

Man At The Foot Of My Bed by danij123

I am 21 years old, I live with my boyfriend and his family in an old house, it was built in the 1920's I am told. My boyfriend and I share a room in the attic that has been re-done. The first time I ever went there I had a funny feeling (maybe it's just because its an old house) Whenever we ha...

Sniff, Sniff... Who's There? by Fergie

Dear readers, at the insistence of Miracles, Rook and Granny, I started keeping a 'Journal' towards the end of June last year (2012). I am truly grateful to all of you. I now have some strange (to me) occurrences which I would like to share. To avoid any confusion, if I mention Zeus - that is my ...

Ghost Or Just Tired by kaiyasam

I have two stories. To me Ghosts/Spirits have alsways been interesting even though I have never really wanted to meet or just see any, plus that has always been my mothers thing, where she has ended up talking to them, even talking to an ex who she didn't even know had died. My first story I am s...

Helping Hands by triden07

To say that we have had a busy few days is stating things lightly. After mom's surgery last week, Gran has been very active around mom. She does not hang in the passage; she is constantly where mom is. Friday afternoon Tim asked me at one point if mom was sitting in the lounge, so I did not even ...

Visits From Blue-grey People by Shay88

I'll start off by mentioning that I live near Johannesburg, South Africa, and that the experience below took place a few suburbs from where I currently stay. In my late teen years I used to wake up every night (in the early hours of the morning - usually around 2 or 3am). I would often not be abl...

My Frantic Mother by triden07

My mother was in a flat spin. Completely worked up about going for surgery that is potentially life threatening. She kept checking and double-checking her bags, trying to decide if there was anything of importance that she had forgotten. She was looking for her slippers, everywhere, and just could n...

Eventful Weekend by triden07

Friday night (30 November 2012) my ex came to pick the boys up for the weekend. T didn't want to go at first, but then when "J" got there he was happy to see his dad. "J" has always had a knack to say a single sentence and get me so upset that I start shaking. He did it again on Friday night. But, I...

Farm House In The Karoo by Fergie

I would like to share with you, another account from my Uncle Norman. This must have taken place in 1950/1, as Norm had bought a 'new' car, a grey Vanguard. He was delighted to have 'wheels' for the first time in his life; eager to try it out on a road trip. Norm and a friend (I honestly can't...
