October Weirdness by valkricry

October has been a rough month for me since 2002. It was the month my son was born. For 20 years we celebrated Halloween together. Then in January of that year, he passed away. I only tell you this, because I think it has some baring on things that are going on. I believe a person's emotional state ...

Unexpected Figure At The Table by Arwen1957

Some background on what I am about to tell you. I work in a midsized nursing home in Northeast Illinois. The nursing home was built in the 1950's and has always been used as a nursing home. It is in a commercial zone in the city it is in. Before the area was commercial it was fallow farmland for yea...

Told Ya by Pierman1964

If you see the title of my story, it is what my ex-wife's deceased grandfather told her after I proposed to her while we were still dating. It was Nov. 1999 and we were in love (or so we thought) and we started talking about getting engaged. I went to search for the ring at several places, inclu...

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...

Skeletons Floating And Staring by shedvl357

About a month ago I fell asleep on the couch and about 3 in the morning I woke up from a flash of light. I found a skeleton floating parallel to me just staring. I closed my eyes and shook my head to make sure I was really awake, opened my eyes again and there were 2 more skeletons floating in the r...

Witch Encounter by ghostrider123

This experience took place when I was just six. I do not remember much of it though I do remember a bit of the spirit's face. As my uncle told me, I was with him walking through the creepy streets of a village at 2 o'clock at midnight in Illinois. Suddenly, I saw a woman in front of me, let me descr...

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. I have lived in this house since I was born, and my sister and I have always gotten weird feelings in my room. When we were younger, we kept all the toys in my room, an...

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...

Little Girl At My Window by MissQuake

This all started around six months ago. It happened on the outskirts of Chicago, Illinois. It happened at night like it always does, and I was alone, like I always am when this happens. I was sitting here in my living room simply watching TV as I usually do, when all of a sudden I hear a little ...

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. Last night I was in my room and I heard the dog whimpering and standing by my door, I figured he was ok. Hour later I still hear him a...

Who's Calling? by valkricry

Back in the early 80's, I lived in a farm house that had been converted into an upper and lower apartment. We hadn't lived in the upper apartment very long, maybe a couple of months, when I began to hear an odd phone ring: 3 short rings followed by a long ring. This was not the sound our phone made....

The Watching Buddha by EHauss

When I was a younger, I grew up in a home that practiced two religions. My sisters and I would regularly go to a Lutheran church on Sundays, while my mother, who was Buddhist would go to "temple" on the weekends as well. What I mean by "temple" is that in my small home town there was no dedicated Bu...

The Farm by theoledog

The Farm is what we came to call our home which is an early 1800's farm house which has been added onto over the years, like many from this period. The house is 2 bedroom with a large kitchen and living room, enclosed sun porch and standard front porch, utility room and one bath room. The outside is...

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...

My Lifetime Experiences by mtp33

Most of my experiences occurred over a span of 11 years from 1996 to 2007. The most significant occurred in December of 2007 and was my last. This is all true but I remain unsure to this day due to the skeptic in me. There was no alcohol or drugs involved in any of this. If not for someone else shar...

Strange Occurrences In Our Old House Pt 2 by castiel

(This is a continuation of Pt 1. -- P.S. I live in Chicago, Illinois, I clicked the wrong country for Pt 1 and didn't get to correct it) Sometimes my favorite radio (A Studebaker, which was laid on the ground in front of the outlet by my bed) would be mysteriously unplugged when we came home fro...

Saviour In The Storm by valkricry

This happened to me this morning as I was walking to work, so I'm still puzzling it out. First off, I wasn't feeling that great and it was raining. It was also very dark out. 5:30 in the morning, the sun is still sleeping, and there is very little traffic. In fact I hardly see anyone out that earl...

Mirror Shadow Spirit by Night_of_Nyx

Often, in the middle of the night, I have to get up to go to the bathroom. I am 15 weeks pregnant, and since I've been close to my 2nd trimester, I have been experiencing paranormal activity. This may due to some increase in hormones, or because being pregnant means getting up more often in the midd...

Ouija Board Warning by Auramyst

In 1977, I was 12 years old. My best friend, Jamie, and I were continually messing around with my Ouija board. We were mostly interested in contacting any spirits that happened to be around. After a few months of playing with the board, weird things started happening in my house. We usually playe...

Little Girl Being Mischevious by Baronessie

There's one encounter I have that still sends shivers down my spine when I think of it. I posted a story about a "man" I encountered when I was younger and he wore a brown suit. We moved to a new house a few months after that experience. That house was on a street called Williamson Avenue. In that h...

Party Crasher by AM616

It was my tenth birthday and I had nine girls staying the night. Around twelve, two of my friends went to sleep but the rest of us stayed up. Around three, we started taking pictures with my friend Abby's phone. We took a picture of my friend Jess on the couch. We noticed some kind of white smud...

Man In The Brown Suit by Baronessie

I was 16 years old and never a believer of the paranormal until I experienced something my self. It was 8 am and I was getting ready for school. My sisters were across the street at my uncle's house visiting my cousins. The apartment was very quiet, very still. I got my clothes out of my closet, m...

The College Phantom by AM616

Until about a year ago, I attended a year round daycare at Louis and Clark College that was also a summer camp. At the time this event occurred I was twelve and, being one of the older kids, had only about two friends at camp that were my age named Jesse and Walter. Since all of the other kids w...

Posession By Nightmare? by valkricry

I'm not sure this is a story I should tell as it's extremely personal. Even within my own family, there are those who would call me a liar for it. When I was about 9 years old I had, what the grownups termed a nightmare of epic proportions. I still remember it quite vividly, and to be honest, I'm st...

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 ...

Ghost Of Native Americans? by Kelmil44

I've wanted to share this story for quite some time. My first experience happened over twenty years ago. I was driving down the highway, and there was a point where a person could turn onto another road, leading to the right. There was a field there, at the intersection of the highway I was on, and ...

Of Wee Ghosties And A Haunted School by valkricry

Recently Oak Park Elementary celebrated its 120th year, which would have meant it was built around 1893. However, some suspect the school is even older since the existing records do not date farther back. Perhaps the anniversary is why this story feels the need to be told. Back in 1979, I was th...

My Experience At The Cemetery by GrimlinGod

I was walking in Decatur, Illinois, Greenwood Cemetery's path when I saw two figures which I could've sworn were two people smoking a cigarette and I was in need of one. So I asked the people (figures) if they had a cigarette they could spare. One of them turned around and all I saw was a dark shado...

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."...

The Black-eyed Man, Part One by ghostchaser489

I've been wrestling with sharing this story for some time, because there are so many other stories interwoven. Recently I realized that most of my life's negative happenings are intertwined, and I believe this single being to be the cause of it. I will begin by saying that my father was deep into sa...

The Blonde Girl With Red Eyes by XxxAlyssaLxxX

So I was walking home from school a couple months back, I came up our street and I heard a girl scream. I figured that it was just a little kid playing so I continued walking home. Once I got to my house I thought I should get the mail, so I walked to our mail box across the street. I grabbed the...

Evp by Sassylil14u

My keyboard is not working. I have been having all kinds of weird occurrences in this house, such as, lights popping on, doorbell going off and no one there, feelings of being watched and a friend telling me I had a ghost or 2 here. My daughter basically acted possessed one night so I decided to ...

Four Legged Dark Creature by cfelix1422

During my senior year of high school, I would normally sleep real late into the night. Since my room was on the second floor, it provided me with the privacy I needed, without any one disturbing my conversations. I was a teenager who enjoyed talking on the phone with friends, and calling from bed wa...

The Ghost Under The Bed by NasCudi

When I was younger, I used to live in a house that had 4 bedrooms. One for me, one for my grandparents, one for my mom, and the other was a spare room but since my "Great Grandma" used to stay over a lot, we named it "Great Grandma's Room" (she passed away years before). For some ODD reason, my gran...

Demonic Experience At My Apartment by guy123

I am glad to see this site today and I decided to share my experience with you all which I experienced 4 years back. Since I am spritual in nature I encountered many spirits back in my home country.

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...

I Think It's My Father? by chauncer23

My dad died back in 1981 when I was 18, suddenly from a massive heart attack. We were just shocked beyond words. About 1 week after he died strange things occurred at our house.

The Guy In The Red Shirt by taraleon88

I'm going to tell you guys about a scary experience that happened to me two years ago. So this happened to me in Springfield, IL at Days Inn.

My Aunt Is Attached To Me by froman64

I have been interested in the paranormal for about 6 years now, and I have seen and heard many things since then, but this story comes from the past up to today. Almost 5 years ago I lost my Aunt Christine and we were so close. The day she died I was over at my gmas house and me, mom, dad, grandm...

Malevolent Entity? by Annabellee

These are things which took place in my current home. This story is significant as it was this event that started the conversations with my new husband about experiences I have had throughout my life. Things I had not shared with other people. I am going to try to tell you what happened AS I PERCE...

My Epiphany by Annabellee

In 1983 I began playing clarinet in my elementary school band. In the morning before classes we would meet in the band room. This room was located underneath the stage, and you had to walk across the gymnasium, then down a flight of stairs to get to the door. I purposely avoided being the first pe...

I Was Never Sure by Emiliee

Still Being Haunted by MexicasianDoll

My name is Jayde and I'm honestly not sure how to start these so I will tell you about how I had my first paranormal encounter and how I feel I'm still being haunted. A few years back, it was about 3 and I was still wide awake. The lights were off but the T.V was on. I was laying down and turned m...

New Baby And The Paranormal by mark

I've previously posted stories about some of the activity going on in my home. I took the advice of everyone and had the house and the ground blessed.

Shadow Figure May Have Touched Me by mlyness100

Around 9 pm on the night of Sunday May 13th (this past Mother's Day) I was on the computer in our apartment. I was called out into the living room by "Anne" (name changed at her request) and we were chatting about something she was watching on t.v. I was holding our cat, playing with her feet an...

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.

It was said that there will be a car that will follow you as soon as you turn onto Blood's Point Road and pa...

The Spirit That Lives In My House by CAROLEJEAN

I purchased my home 10 years ago. It was built in 1880. I did not notice anything unusual in a paranormal way, until I had lived there for about 7 years. I would hear static and words I could not understand, like an old radio broadcast. I thought it was the neighbors, or a car going by. I was st...

The Midnight Watch by agochoa

My story takes place in RTC Great Lakes, Illinois (US NAVY BOOTCAMP). What a place! It has been around since 1905 and has trained many sailors throughout its years (approx 40, 000 a year). The overall environment and experience of the place puts ghosts completely out of mind. As a recruit, I was giv...

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...

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.

A Dead Man Or The Old Hag by Pickle-D

After living with family for years, I finaly had a place of my own.

Since I moved in I could hear noises coming from the apartment below, knowing ...

Haunting In A New House by GhostGirl7

I guess it all started about 9 months ago. My house seems to be haunted, but when I found out that my house was only twenty years old, I thought that it didn't seem probable that a traumatic death had taken place in it. Since, that's how a lot of hauntings go, right? But, I did read on this one webs...

Graveyard Mistakes by claudiabrowning

My Fiancé and I went to a graveyard in our town, with two friends. I had a bad feeling about this from the beginning. Our friend Darus had been there once before with his brother.

Using A Ouija At My Friend's 5 by seb94

I will start by apologizing to everyone that helped me so much with their comments when I was at my worst.

The Demon's Voice Calling Out by thethreestooges13

Have you ever talked to a voice that you don't know if it was good or evil? Have you ever had a small conversation with a spirit? I have always thought my old house was haunted.

Haunted As A Child by Thehaunted

Please take the time to read all of these and if you don't want too- then at least read the last story as it is the most disturbing. The encounters began progressing, getting me worried.

Paper Money Mystery by sunsetsphere

Electrical Wire Mystery by sunsetsphere

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

Update On Mr. Ghostly by tabby315

Just a small update on my good friend Mr. Ghostly. They say that babies are more able to see ghosts and other paranormal things than adults.

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.

Mr. Ghostly by tabby315

So I lived in the same house until I was twelve. The entire time I lived in the house it was haunted.

We grew to call him Mr. Ghostly....

Haunted Morgue by always-up

I got this great job working at hospital. I really get to do something I enjoy. Taking care of others has always been a passion. I work on one of the hardest floors, the cancer floor.

It Followed Me Home by quartertwo3

I've always loved a good ghost story. Unfortunately (or fortunately, perhaps, depending upon your perspective), I don't have many of my own to tell.

Things Go Bump In The Night by always-up

A lot of unexplainable things have happened to me ever since I was a little girl. Things I could not even explain. When I was about 8 years old my younger sister and I shared a room.

My Grandparent's House 3 by guy48

Haunted Places I've Lived In by 30stones

None of my stories are really scary, though they will be lengthy; that's why I'm breaking the additions down into separate chapters. The first one was in 1988. It was loosely referred to as the Culver House (you can Google it under culver house Decatur il.) I'd graduated college, returned to my ...

Exploding Head Syndrome by 30stones

The Little Lost Girl by Dezzie

I remember once as a little girl my grandmother would tell me lots of stories and all were true. More than anything they would fascinate me instead of scare me.
