A Bad Experience at Bachelors Grove by Aiden

Back on October 15, 2004, my girlfriend thought it would be a good idea to take me to Bachelors Grove Cemetery, a week before my birthday, as one of my presents. I am really into the supernatural, so I was really excited about it. I even went and bought a digital voice recorder, and got out my dig...

A Dead Man Or The Old Hag by Pickle-D

After living with family for years, I finaly had a place of my own. I thought about researching the history of my new apartment before moving in but I was too excited and thought "If you don't belive, it can't happen". Since I moved in I could hear noises coming from the apartment below, knowing ...

A Dear Friend by Baronessie

It was 2010 and I was hit with a hard loss. My good friend, Nikki Reynolds, passed away in mid August. I was absolutely crushed, and it took until now to accept it. This was my first time experiencing death. I've had relatives pass away that I hardly knew, but she was my best friend. I refused to be...

A Few On The Lighter Side by jupiter_rising

Really happy to have found this website, and to share my experiences with others. I live in an old home. It was built in a sleepy village in Illinois around the date of 1870; I can't be sure, as the original blueprints to the house no longer exist. I have lived here for the majority of my 25 yea...

A Ghost Asking Help Me by gstories

So there is this video I have that I recorded back in 2013 on my iPod. I was recording a scene from a TV show. I did not notice anything until about a month ago because it is one of those videos I have but never watch. It is hard to hear anything that is quiet on my iPod with or without headphones, ...

A Ghost Cat by norwegiancat

I used to live next door to my neighbor who had a black/white cat. I just adored this cat, and he just loved when I would come over for a visit. My neighbor told me that her cat had a malignant tumor. The cat was still fine the last time I saw him. We got a two-bedroom apartment in the next build...

A Hand Haunting by NinjaPirateAssasin

There's one spirit in my house that always seems to enjoy making noise and scaring me. I can't help but feel that he is a bad spirit. I still remember the first (and only) time I physically saw him. Our family used to have two guinea pigs and a rabbit in our basement (all three have since passed ...

A Lifetime Of Haunts by WinchesterBaby97

This might get a little long, just warning. I was born a believer of spirits and ghosts, and have grown to believe that it is my family and I that are haunted not the houses in which we reside. I'm 17 now, but I have seen a lot of paranormal activity that would make some grown men cry. It al...

A Night at the Lemp Mansion by msmeghan2

I spent a memorable night at The Lemp Mansion with my cousin, Cindy. It was memorable for me, because of the activity. Memorable for Cindy, because it firmly cemented in her mind that she would never return. We stayed in the Charles Lemp suite. Charles was the last of the Lemp family to take his...

A Pinto by halfchewed

I should have known something wasn't right before I bought the car. The teenage girl I was buying the car from was selling me her 1966 Chevelle Malibu so she could get a Pinto. A PINTO. I didn't care, the car was cool, and I was a teenager in the mid 1980's. It took a while before my girlfriend a...

A Seance And A Warning by Jake_Da_Snake

A couple months back, I had my first experience with the paranormal. My roommate Jordan and I were bored one night, and decided to have a séance in my room. I thought it would be cool since I had never taken part in such things, but had always been interested. We arranged lit candles in a circle ar...

A Story Almost Too Unbelievable To Be True by pamacha03

I grew up in Chicago, Illinois, in a house that had 2 apartments in it. My parents, brother and I lived on the top floor. My aunt and uncle lived on the bottom. I always heard noises in that house but always tried to explain them away. One night there alone changed my life forever. My parents we...

A Warning? by Lenny73

Last year, around Late October and/or Early November 2011, I started feeling ill. I had trouble breathing; I couldn't sleep lying flat on my bed for fear of being suffocated. I had a terrible cough, and severe hot flashes. I am a 38 year old male. I had this ominous feeling of impending doom. I did ...

A Woman Behind The Door by girleye888

This isn't a one time story, this is a reoccurring story. When I was younger my mother and I were looking through her old high school year books, well as I'm looking through them this one girl stood out to me... And every page I looked at she was the first thing drawn to me. Well anyway, I asked my ...

Alarming Ouija Experience by raincolor

This story (a bit long - sorry!) happened in December 2008. I was hesitant to post it here because I have seen the negative feelings expressed on this forum regarding the use of Ouija boards - however, in lurking around this site, the knowledge I gained helped me put a stop to what was going on befo...

Always Seems To Be The Basement by agatha23

I live in a 92 year old house, just outside of Chicago. We have lived there for 14 years now and have had some strange stuff from time to time that would occur. At times, there would be years before something happened. The main area of activity seems to be our basement. My nephew was down there rece...

An Encounter With Rodney by LeahsLullabye

I am 18 and still living with my mom until I finish college. A few years ago my Mom met a man and they are going to be married in July. A few weeks ago we started moving in with him. Immediately we noticed small things in his home that were a little bizarre. My friend that is living with us lost her...

An Illinois Haunting by seabird

My story starts in 1983, the year I was born in Des Plaines, Illinois. My parents and my older brother had previously lived in a two-flat, but with a new baby, they decided they needed more space. House hunting was difficult for them, because money was tight, and they always seemed to get outbid on ...

An Invisible Clock Ticking by Manafon

I am 47 and have had numerous paranormal experiences throughout my life. Some very odd, others quite intense. In recent years I would say my paranormal experiences have been much more sporadic, sometimes months or even years apart. Just this last Saturday night (November 22nd 2014) I had an experien...

An Odd Encounter With Coyotes by oceanborn

Me and my friends have been into ghost hunting and investigating for quite a while now. While doing this I've experienced some strange things before, taken some interesting pictures etc. But within just a few days it seemed like something odd was happening. I will start with the night when me, my...

An Odd Photograph by winx717

What sparked my submission of this story and mainly photo is an episode of "My Ghost Story" that my friend had viewed on the Biography channel this past weekend. It was about a woman that had been harrassed by what was thought to be an incubus. However what was most important about this particular e...

Answers For My House by LordRhodium

I am actually a bit ashamed of myself here. I came here for help originally when I didn't know where else to turn and you people helped me find it. Now it's been so long and I haven't posted any updates on what has been happening. I've tried coming back a few times, especially shortly after the las...

Antique Store by Melianna75

I have always been skeptical. I am someone who believes that YOU believe what happened to you but I need to experience things myself to truly be convinced. Growing up in an old farmhouse (it is one of the oldest in my town) there were always the usual creaking sounds of the floors and stairs, do...

As I Grew, So Did They by KittyChymira

Most of my experiences (but not all) have mainly occurred in my family's first home. This first handful of experiences did occur in that house. When I was about 6 or 7 years old, my playroom was our basement, as was most children's that I've talked to. This was little to no problem, really. I co...

As I Grew, So Did They 2 by KittyChymira

As I grew up, I started to notice other things happening that were considerably out of place. Within a few weeks of seeing the small girl on my basement landing, I started to hear very odd noises. My dog (a 45 pound poodle-type dog) was sitting in our living room with me while I read. No one was i...

Attacked by a Ghost by freakedout

It was the middle of the night, 3am and I'm not sure why I awoke. I turned the TV on to pass some time and suddenly got a headache and felt sick to my stomach. I ran to the bathroom to get sick. I just wanted to lay down and sleep at that point so I turned off the TV and went back to bed. As I wa...

Attacks From A Demon? by Shikyo_Miko

This has only occurred twice to my knowledge, but both times were scary. I'm going to start with a bit of my background first. At the age of ten, I'd lived in a different home from my mother. She was a single mom who did the best she could to raise us and avoid involvement with DCFS, so my sister...

Back Off: Psychic Attack by valkricry

This isn't your traditional ghost story, but it is of the paranormal. It took place shortly after I turned 16 and was working at an indoor amusement park/shopping mall called Old Chicago, which is now defunct. One night I had, what my mother called a prophetic dream, a warning. In it a man I did...

Bad Feelings And Weird Noises by seb94

I have got a few weird things that I'm wondering about. I'll start with my friend's experiences in her home. Her house is pretty old, and we don't know the history. The thing is they've been doing some renovations lately, and I've heard that can stir up some activity. I don't know I've just hear...

Bad Feelings And Weird Noises 2 by seb94

Here's an update on the experiences I've been having at my friend's house. I spent the night there last night which I really regret now. It started off normal laughing and chatting in her room, watching TV and snacking on chips. Then we agreed we were tired and she switched off the light and tur...

Basement Encounter by EnergyTwinkles

It was October in the mid 1980s and I was still living in a very old (built in 1889) home in Chicago. The neighborhood kids volunteered to help me put together a yard sale so we were all in my basement rummaging through old stuff to sell. As I was standing at the laundry sink washing some old dishes...

Basement Fright by lovedaniel

My name is Ligia and I had quite a fright tonight! I was having a normal evening of movies and dinner in bed, is there anything better! I have to say I love the paranormal, I always have. But I have never seen anything until tonight! I often read the stories on here and I always wondered what i...

Being Held Down And Choked by Scarredsomtimes

I am in my 30's and have had experiences in the past and always believed that it just wasn't MY imagination even though I had been told I have an overactive imagination. This recent experience happened to me about two months ago. I was sleeping or so I think. I woke up suddenly to a heaviness on...

Being Touched by luvparanormal

This one happened to my Mom and Aunt when I was a little girl. I read a story that someone put in the web site and after I read it, it reminded me of this one. Only difference is that this one would be more in the lines of being believable. I was about 6 or 7 years old and we live in an apartment...

Bells At Night by Northernlights

To start of, I'm a 16 year old girl, and what I'm about to write "Did" happen. Not just me but my mom and aunt too. It all started off in the afternoon, my mom and I got in a fight with my aunt about something stupid. When we finished fighting we didn't really talked to each other, so I just went ...

Beyond The Veil by valkricry

About two months ago, I started a thread about visions/sensations during meditation on my story The Cat and the Angel (http://www.yourghoststories.com/real-ghost-story.php?story=20577). In a nutshell, I was looking for confirmation/reassurance and guidance on some twists that meditation had taken fo...

Blood's Point Nightmare by Toriii93

This story takes place on two separate nights. My best friend Mandy & I read about Blood's Point Road in Illinois online and we decided to go there at night and see if any of it was true.

Blue Mist by themurph

This is very recent and it was last night. Got back from active and later I noticed from the side of my eye I would see something instant rarely, but it was nothing.

Boy In A Cape by hobbyholly

I have this weird thing going on along with the "pokes" at night. For about two weeks now, I feel or see something in our apartment hallway. It doesn't matter if my fiancée is home or not, I see this figure standing at the end of the hallway by our bedroom entrance. The figure is white or light ...

Brianna's Ghost Sightings by ahhitscaty

I am very much aware of the fact that children have active imaginations. However I'm also under the impression that my best friends sister Brianna is only two and while she is a very smart child I believe there is no way possibly she could have made up the things we have witnessed her seeing. Th...

Brookfield Woods by Tom

In Brookfield, IL, things out of the ordinary are continuing to go on in the woods. Apparently, Native Americans used to settle there back in the 1300's. Well, I myself witnessed the first Orb sighting in my entire life, on Monday, April 23rd, 2007 at 10:00 p.m. We were in the woods for over an hour...

Can It Be A Ghost? by Ibelieveinghosts

I had published this story before on my old account and am resubmitting it. I recently moved into an upstairs apartment over a store. There is one other apartment along side mine but it's empty and has been for months. Shortly after my son and I moved here, I started hearing what sounded exactly lik...

Can You Hear Me Now? Disembodied Voices by valkricry

On several different occasions, I have heard voices. Sometimes I can identify who it is, and sometimes I can't. For instance in Of Wee Ghosties And A Haunted School, I told about hearing children's cries and an unknown child yelling 'No!' and shoving me out of harm's way when a ceiling collapsed. Gr...

Cat Came To Say Goodbye by norwegiancat

My cat had a Vaccine Related Sarcoma. This is a tumor due to vaccination. This is very prevalent when you give vaccinations to your pets. The stuff that vaccination is made of causes cancer. Poor baby had one of his legs amputated. This has only prolonged his life for about six months. He was at the...

Cemetary Bubbles by seabird

This story doesn't have the concrete research and prolonged experiences that my last story, "An Illinois Haunting" had, but it's something I still think about and question. For Memorial Day every year, my mother and I like to buy a bunch of flowers to plant in front of our deceased relatives' hea...

Childhood Haunted Home In Stc by NewAuthor

Ghost stories - here are a few of my remembrances... My parents built our house and we moved in a year after I was born in 1970 on Ron Sue Lane in St. Charles (STC), IL USA.

Childhood Paranormal Odds And Sods Part 1 by Manafon1

Choking Ghost by Hillary

My name is Hillary. I am 14 years old. When I was around 12 years old, I lived in illinois. One day at school, my friends in gym class noticed a huge bruise on my neck that I didn't see until then. They said it looked like a hand. So I put my hand up to it and it was the same exact size (but I would...

Coffee Time? by valkricry

Let me begin by saying, unusual occurrences are not 'new' for me. Indeed, until I was in my 30's I could see, hear, and sense things that other's couldn't. However, these things deeply disturbed my then husband, and I pretty much shut it off, I guess. As they say, "if you don't use it, you lose it."...

Coffee Time? 2 by valkricry

The Ghostie hasn't offered me any coffee in awhile, but I have noticed some other activities, and thought I would share them. I've begun hearing sounds that I had previously contributed to the downstairs neighbor's dog or her visiting grandkids. Nothing scary: the sound of a hard ball or similar ...

Could It Really Be Possible? by ahhitscaty

I suppose this story started the night me and my best friend since the forth grade decided it would be a great idea to watch as many ghost stories as we could in one night. Since a long time ago when we had been only 10 we decided my house had to be haunted. There was no wind in the house how co...

Daddy's House by winx717

As a child, I was always looking for adventure. I can remember being in 2nd grade and sitting around telling ghost stories with all of my friends. We lived to talk of things unknown.

Deceased, Happy, And Excited Step Grandpa by bella714

To begin, I would like to clear up that I am NOT an adult, if it states so. I'm actually pretty young. A couple weeks ago on the night of Christmas Eve, I was in my mom's room, straightening my hair for our traditional Christmas dinner. It was two nights before our one-week long vacation to Color...

Demonic Presence by letmebeinvisible

Feelings of something watching me have been happening since I can remember. But this is the first time anything has ever harmed me.

Double Visitation by valkricry

I swear, as I sit here typing this up, the temp in my room has dropped about 10 degrees, but only behind my right shoulder; as if someone is reading over my shoulder. It isn't a 'bad' feeling, the vibe is more of someone being curious. I'm just not sure who the someone is. This is current, having...

Driving Through Corn Fields At Night by Trudy82

As you may know from my previous stories, I grew up in Illinois and I experienced many paranormal things there. What I would like to tell you about this time are the experiences I had during a period of six months in college (University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign or UIUC) when I was taking hors...

Easter Visit by hobbyholly

I think this will be one of my last stories on here. Things on this site don't seem the same. Maybe I need a break for a while. Plus I miss some old posters that I don't see anymore. With that said, this isn't a gloom and doom scary story. It is not grand. I didn't play with an Ouija board or see...

Electrical Wire Mystery by sunsetsphere

Another episode in my sunset life for which I have no known explanation happened this morning, 07Mar2011.

Expectations And Told You I Didn't Like That Color by raincolor

My parents insist that the old two-story house in which I spent the first 6 years of my life was haunted.

Flying Flowers Broken Vase by valkricry

If you have been reading some of my stories, then you know that I have been seeing some activity in my tiny upper apartment. Until now these events have been more of a WTH status then anything.

Flying Flowers Broken Vase 2 by valkricry

I think this may be connected with the event I posted back in May called Flying Flowers Broken Vase, which is why I decided to title this a continuation of that happening. On May 17th, a vase that had belonged to my dad, filled with flowers flew off the top of my curio cabinet breaking. I found...

Four Legged Dark Creature by cfelix1422

During my senior year of high school, I would normally sleep real late into the night.

Ghost at the Olympic Star Restaurant by Liz

When I was about six or seven years old, I went out to breakfast with my dad at a restaurant called 'Olympic Star'. I know it is either in or near Tinley Park, so maybe you have heard of it.
