A Ghost With A Sense Of Humor by VividNature

My then girlfriend lived for a couple of months in a trailer in Alamogordo, New Mexico. We both felt like there was something there, some sort of unpleasant feeling. The neighbor told her that the last person who had lived there was a drug dealer. The back room had a particularly creepy sort of feel...

A Night Out by Ladybug-

This happened the summer of 2006. My friend and I had the whole Saturday hanging out, shopping and sightseeing. We live in a small town not far from the border of Arizona and New Mexico. In the evening, we went back to my house to eat dinner. My husband at the time had cooked dinner. He had made...

A Series Of Strange Events by KibaxChan

I have been trying to rid myself of an entity for the past few months, but it keeps coming back. Last month, I smudged the house and it caused the entity to leave until very recently. The activity is starting up once again and I wanted your opinions on what you think it could be and what the best co...

A Stranger by darkistheheart

I was twelve when I first saw a guy. I was walking out of the church and I glanced over to my mom's office. There was a guy standing there. He had dark hair and was wearing a white shirt, black pants. And a black top hat. When I looked again he was gone. I told my mom what I saw and she didn't know ...

A Wooden Wagon In The Forest by ghost_seeker

This is a story my mother described to me just after the night it happened. This however, happened a couple years ago. So here it is. My family and I live in the northern part of New Mexico on a reservation. We lease a couple of cattle ranges and we were staying at one of them for a weekend. A brief...

Apartment Haunting by Seeker1

As promised here are a few more happenings in the South West, USA. All of which occurred in the same apartment. As Bugs Bunny would say: " I knew I shouldn't have taken that left in Al-bah-curr-key!" My husband and I have sort of been nomads up until now, working where we were needed in our pa...

Can I Just Not See Them? by elnoraemily

This story deals with the same friend who was in the Frantic Energy story I posted- she apparently is very sensitive to the paranormal and energy. A recent post on here reminded me of this encounter. When we were a bit younger (not young enough to excuse being this stupid), there was an abandone...

Curious Of Who's Around Me? by GuerrillaMonk

Demonic Dreams by mamachong

I'm finally able to submit more of my stories. This story I believe is related to the haunted bank building. Read my previous story on the haunted bank building, this story happened in the same time that I was working there. I believe the ghost followed me home and I now believe the male was actuall...

Desert Mischief by Maus

I have had only a handful of experiences during the course of my 38 years that can be labeled as unusual, unsettling, or potentially supernatural. Most of these experiences have faded, and become brittle over the years. Any sense of import I may have pinned to them has been diluted with the usual li...

Emotions by AllennellA

This story isn't about me, although I have gotten deeply involved. I have a friend who told me she had a ghost following her. It moved with her from house to house, whole cities even. Although I was at first convinced she just wanted attention, I thought there was no harm in playing along. I was op...

Expect The Unexpected With Shadow People by KibaxChan

MY EXPERIENCES I've had several experiences with shadow people, but I don't think that they have ever been the same exact entity twice. My experiences range from neutral to malevolent, but I have never crossed paths with a benevolent shadow being. I have been an empath since birth, but my sensitivi...

First Contact by chunkeylumpkins

This all happened when I was about eight; my family had just moved into a new one story house. In my room there was this full length mirror in the closet that absolutely creeped me out! And my parents had set up my bed so that if I lay down I could see my reflection in it. So I pushed my hanging clo...

Four Ghosts, One House by KyleMM

This happened to my cousins and I maybe 7 years ago. One day after school we were playing outside as usual. My grandma lived on the side of a hill with some old ruined rock house on top. We were chasing her dog around when we all decided to climb the hill. Now we explored a lot but these houses look...

Frantic Energy by elnoraemily

I had been saving this story for myself, since it's very odd and was a bit strange, but I figured I may as well share it. My close friend has always called herself sensitive and she has quite a few stories- nothing outlandish enough for me to ever question her, though I am very much on the fence wit...

Ghost Man Or Skinwalker? by Roamer12

I live in Gallup, NM a city surrounded by Native American culture and history. We have many surrounding towns and reservations that have been here for a very long time and many people claim they are haunted. My experience actually takes place right in Gallup on the east side of the city near a v...

Ghostly Voices, Children Laughing by ghost_seeker

Sometimes when I hear the voices I'm always wondering, "Why is it in the unlikeliest locations?" I think this for a number of reasons. One, being that they are in new locations that should not have any paranormal things going on. Two, from my knowledge no one has died or had any grisly deaths there....

Grandma? Or Worst by Kyle_Zahney

Hey guys, I'm Kyle. I'm a Navajo and you must've heard strange tales about my land the Navajo Reservation. I can confirm from experience that the stories and sights are true. My grandmother died 5 months of leukemia before I was born, I wonder how she would've been if she still were here. At the...

Guardian by BareXenolith

I didn't come by my experiences by mistake, or by some inter-demensional flaw, or whatever paranormal experts call the ability to see things beyond the physical. I inherited it from my maternal grandmother, who had a ton of experiences, but I'll save those for later. The first time I ever had an...

Haunted Bank Building by mamachong

This happened between 2002 - 2003. I was working at a bank building as a security guard on the grave yard shift. This building has 18 floors. The first floor was the main entrance.

Haunted Bank Building 2 by mamachong

I also had several friends come one night to record it. One of my friends had a camcorder. He had 2 batteries, one in the camcorder and the other in his pocket, both fully charged.

He's Still At The Funeral Home by Synndill

To give you some background, I work in a Funeral Home as an Administrative Assistant, in Kirtland, New Mexico. I know, I know, a Funeral Home, but I am perfectly comfortable th...

Headless In Indiana by Andrea22

The following is pretty short... But very very strange! There aren't that many details for me to tell because it was only a moment, but enough to be shocking and always remembered. It's actually something that happened to my father. He told me about a ghost, or whatever it might have been, that he s...

Henry by CarlaB69

I wonder if ghosts or spirits can actually follow people. I think it is happening to my family. We used to live in Chicago a few years ago and we KNOW our apartment was haunted by a ghost of a teenage boy. It started with odd noises and stuff being moved around. My husband who didn't believe in ghos...

Hide And Seek by wertona9

I'm Really Curious About Some Of My Experiences by Curious225

I'll start by saying I have no clue what happened. I grew up in a Catholic family (turns out I wasn't related to them) and they greatly believed in anything spiritual. Of course, there were stories of me talking to people as a baby, which I'm certain everyone has had. My mom said my conversations...

Im Starting To Think I'm Haunted by kdw7222

So this starts out when I was about 8 in Fountain Colorado... I laid awake on my side one night in the living room "camping out" and felt incredibly uneasy and had a cold tingly sensation when it felt like someone had just touched my shoulder. No one was around so I brushed it off. A couple of weeks...

Iron Hide by jonjon272

It was about 3:30 in the morning and I was driving down Highway 402 from Clayton, New Mexico to Nara Visa, New Mexico. I was hauling an empty trailer to Tucumcari, New Mexico.

La Llorona by wertona9

I have lived in New Mexico my entire lifetime, and never moved. As result of living in the center of the southwest, I have heard the story of 'La Llorona' multiple times, and in many different versions.

Life Of A Sensitive by KibaxChan

There was a house I lived in right next to my middle school and we moved in at the end of 5th grade. While in that home, I attempted to use a homemade Ouija board to contact the spirits I knew were already there. I would feel a strong presence enter the room every time I was alone. Nightly, I could ...

Miscellaneous Occurrences by mamachong

To start with, I'm going to put two sightings in here from back in 2001 to 2003. I have had a few more occurrences, but there's not much to write about, so to meet the criteria I'll add them. So here goes... 2001/2003 - I was staying with some friends between moving and what not. There was and st...

My Fiance's Experiences by elnoraemily

My fiance grew up in a house his parents built. It was on old ranch land in the local Bosque (wooded area near a river). It was a huge house- five bedrooms upstairs, a huge dining and living area downstairs. It was all tile floors with high ceilings, so sound spread easily through the house. His...

My Weekend Was Paranormal by Andrea22

This past Saturday I helped my friend with moving. But it wasn't just any ordinary move... It was more like helping her flee from her own house!

Occasional Paranormal Encounters by mamachong

I recently moved into my trailer about a year in a half ago, a little longer maybe. We were there for a few months before we noticed anything. One night I was up rather late. Sometime in the three am time frame. I heard two quick taps on the wall. The taps were not loud, nor were they quiet. I l...

One Summer Morning by wertona9

This is probably the third or fourth most vivid encounter I have had, even though it really should be number one, seeing as it is the most active. This only happened about two months ago. It was summertime, and I had nothing to do from when I woke up at 10:30 A.M., so I just sort of woke up, and...

Predator Of My Nightmares by chunkeylumpkins

This story is more recent, maybe two three years ago. I had gotten super sick and had been going to the hospital several times from dehydration. Nothing had happened for a while and I figured that the thing that follows me around had gone away. But one day I was all by my self lying on the living ro...

Shadow Man In Doorway by valdez85

I come from a very small town, Jal, NM, where my home is located kind of on the outskirts of town. Growing up I do not know if it is just because I love paranormal stuff or if it was just my imagination, however, I have always experienced strange situations in my parents current home. I have to e...

Shadows On The Wall by Deciduous

This has been going on since I was around...I'd say nine years old and it still continues bugging me to this day. Ever since I was small I was afraid of the dark. I'd run to my parents room if I heard any little sound at night. Here is how the shadow nightmare started. One night... I had woken up a...

She Moaned by LindaG

This happened on November 2nd 2011. I had been displaced by a fire at my apartment complex, so I was given temporary housing at another complex until repairs were completed.

Something In Our Old Apartment by Synndill

We were living in a Low Income apartment complex in Aztec, New Mexico that was built sometime in the late 60's early 70's, when the events took place.

Something In The Back Room by katiev6661

This happened when I was about 5 or 6. It happened in the back room of our old house. We used to use that room for storage, and it was partly my dads little gym.

The Dark One In New Mexico Hotel by SapphireRain

It was about the year 1989 and I and my then fiancé' had gone on a camping trip. Well, the winds were so bad they tore a hole in the tent and we had to go to a hotel. Personally, I had no problem with that. When we first got there I had a really odd feeling. I saw a bunch of leaves spiraling in ...

The Ghost Car Of Highway 58 by Andrea22

My title might sound like the opening to a fictional story, but strangely this was a real life event that made me feel like I was stepping into fiction. It was about 12 or 13 years ago. For a while I even forgot about it, but recently it came back to my memory and sparked my interest in the supernat...

The Ghosts Of N.M.M.I. by Dudester

In the fall semester of 1976, I received a magazine for incoming cadets at New Mexico Military Institute. There was an article in the magazine boasting that the campus had as many as thirty eight ghosts on campus. It set a mind to wandering. How could a school have so many ghosts? What exactly happe...

The Grey Face by darkangel77

I have always been intrigued by the unknown since I was a little girl. Family members couldn't understand why and sometimes even thought I might be evil or possessed. My father is a Jehovah's Witness, and that religion didn't believe there were any spirits trapped here, that all it was is demons moc...

The Jacket That Came To Life by elasticband

I've experienced a number of mystical occurrences over the years, but here's an incident that forever sticks in my mind. I was in seventh grade, residing in the Southwest region of The United States at the time. It was the day after Thanksgiving and snow was falling quite heavily. There was no s...

The Man With The White Face by Reesybear93

My family has moved around a lot, because my father is in the military. Out of all the places that we have lived, this place was by far the worst. We moved into our house in February of 1998, we lived in a four bedroom house on a military base and all seemed well. A few months passed and I noticed s...

The Witch by bloodruns

Ghost, aberrations, witches, all seem to fall in the same paranormal grouping so here is a witch story. Summer came like a wanted pleasure. The sun gently caressing down as dew began to absorb into a rich earth which began to spew forth hope. Blazing green shards of grass fought to cover the dyin...

There Are Others In Our House by dimondeyes

We can hear someone or something calling our names, we can also hear other things like "Hey", "Baby". We also, at times, can hear like someone is breathing. For example we would be sitting in our den and we would hear someone behind us. However no one is there and we could hear someone breathe deepl...

Tolkas In The House by Dudester

I'd heard the stories when I was a kid, but it was a few years ago, when reading a Sylvia Browne book that I figured out what this was. Different from a ghost, a Tolkas is a ghost like presence made up of the psychic energy of the people in a certain place. Unlike a ghost, a Tolkas can physically hu...

Unexpected Run In 2 by mamachong

So today is a perfect day to submit another story. It is one of the two or three holidays that the building is closed and no one around to bug me. I waited until both of my patrols were done before submitting. I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping for a better ghost story from tonight on my end, b...

Unexpected, Agitated Run In by mamachong

This happened about a week after my mom had died. She died June 25th of this year 2013.

So, it's my first day back...

Was That Something? by elnoraemily

I have complained for years on this site about nothing happening in my life that could be deemed ghostly. Now, I am not sure if I actually experienced something or if my mind and I are just not getting along. This was about a week ago (and brought me back to this site after a few months' abse...

What Attacked Tim? by Zephyrin

Generations of my family have spent their summer vacations at our old adobe cabin in the mountains of Northern New Mexico.

When She Proved Me Wrong by elnoraemily

I kept saying I would write this multiple times. This story involves the same girl from Frantic Energy and Can I Just Not See Them (I had mentioned before that she had proven me wrong and this is it). She has been a friend of mine for years now and has always been very vocal about her beliefs in...

Who Was He? by mpompa

I can't say, like some people, that I saw or was afraid of something unknown watching me. However I can say that I grew up in a family where three of the six members reported feeling, seeing or hearing things. Maybe it was because the three members that didn't were under the age of 10. An adult's...

Who Was In My Backyard? by Andrea22

This experience was very short but it was enough to stay in my memory for a long time. It happened when I was 14. And I'm 23 now so it was almost 10 years ago. I lived in Tennessee at the time. While I was growing up I always shared a room with my younger sister, but when I became a teenager and n...
