Latest Paranormal Experiences

Just Another Ghost Story by Temilicious

I've had a few incidents happen to me since my last posts, mostly two years ago (can't believe it's been two years already), feels like all this happened less than a year ago). In 2014 I was staying in Westdene-Melville near the Westdene dam, my favourite place in Johannesburg- very artsy-fartsy ...

He Commit Suicide by Pinky16

I would like to share one of the many horror stories that I had experience. It happened when we moved to this huge house here in Manila last year 2015. I am not the kind of person who is easily frighten unless something scary happened to me. I experienced lots of horror stories that I will also ...

The House In Olin by Barbados99

My family and I came to live to North Carolina in February 2004, used to live in a big old house in Elkin. However due to personal reasons we wanted to move closer to Statesville, so we started looking for homes in the area and we got to Olin loop, about 20 minutes away from Statesville. There w...

Our Starnge Apartment Part I by Hemie

I'll be starting off with my most recent experiences first. I was sitting on the living room floor browsing Netflix. As I was siting there trying to figure out what to watch, I heard a click of the a door handle being turned. I looked up in time to see my bathroom door open by itself. I was the ...

A Night I Will Never Forget! by Plthrill25

When I was 16 years old my father passed away and this caused me to waiver in my faith; I was born and raised Catholic. I wasn't really a practicing Catholic but I had my beliefs. Well, at that time I questioned why would he take my father away from me, so I was mad. I was 17 years old, just got...

Oma's Denial Of A House Guest by Kindly_refrain

This account involves me, my children, my sister and my mother. It took place in my mother's home in a small town near London, Ontario, Canada. I grew up in that house since I was 9 years old and while it is not the main story, I did have one odd, repeated occurrence, that happened to me. Of...

Friendly Visit by IndianaLadyGrey

When I was younger, elementary school age, I lost a friend in a car accident that I witnessed. It was very hard on me and to this days has caused unresolved emotional issues. Now for the paranormal part of this story. Right after his funeral, that I was unable to attend, I started feeling his presen...

On My Way To Home At Night by buthaya

I don't like to see sprites, it confuse me sometimes because I am unable to identify real people and dead ones. I was a vegetarian before and I meditated a lot before. I stopped them just to stop seeing them. I protected my house from them and all I did seems to work for a while. I don't have an...

Nola Experiences by elusiveproof

My experiences were tame compared to many on this site but I'm comfortable sharing them with people who also have an interest in the paranormal. I'm not sensitive to the paranormal and I'm always the first to debunk my own experiences. My interest stems from a desire for definitive proof of an after...

Being Watched? 2 by Kricket

So in my first post I explained how I always felt watched or could feel something on my bed or touching my hair. I have gone and gotten a second and a third opinion from several doctors. Only one of them felt I had an anxiety problem. The reason I am posting this second post is because of an exp...

The Man At My Bedroom Door by Lockett

This is my first story for this website so I'm a bit nervous posting it but I really wanted to speak of my experiences to others. I live in Northern Ireland and I am twenty years old and a lot of weird things that have happened to me occurred while I was still a teenager. Weird things started ha...

Care Home's Ex Residents Come To Visit by Linzell

This story happened in 1995 when I was a 15 year old girl working nights as a care assistant in a local nursing home. The nursing home was a large old stone Edwardian house with three main floors and a small fourth, housing two bedrooms in the attic (always a horrible feeling in those rooms). Set am...

Aimless Drive by ulvenNixie

My friends and I made a plan to go out to Possum Kingdom Lake State Park recently. It's a state park that is two hours away. It was a fun drive out but the place wasn't all that great. In fact, it was fairly boring and buggy. Instead of trying to make it work there, we decided to go driving. We visi...

Disappearing Mediumship by EvelynHeart47

Currently, I am 17 years old and have experienced paranormal 'things' on several occasions. I'll list a couple of the things I've gone through. Once, I was at my grandmother's house (which I'm convinced is haunted for multiple reasons other than this one), and I was about 10 or 11 years old when...

Strange Activity In My Family Home by rescueblonde

I've been reading stories on this website on and off for years. I've now decided to join and share my story in hopes that maybe someone else has had the same experiences or can help shed some light on what's happening. I'll provide some background information first. I'm currently 17 years old. I...

The Lady In The Cemetery by MarvinScott

I have been a mortician for over 30 years and have seen and heard all sorts of things in funeral homes and cemeteries of a supernatural nature. One such event occurred when I was managing a funeral home in North Alabama in the late 1990's. In that part of the state there are many country, as wel...

Whispers In The Night (story 4) by yomomma

I don't have an exact date for this next account. I do know it happened late 2008 or early 2009. When I sat down at my computer tonight (April 20, 2016) I had not planned to write this. I am not sure I ever planned to write it. This account lasted or recurred for several weeks. Shortly after the ...

Sleep Paralysis Or Something Else Maybe? by Mazzmarach

The title speaks for itself. My first story was about my girlfriend and her white spirit stalker. This one is about me and my bouts with what I believe to be sleep paralysis, and I'd like to have a second opinion. This all began one sunny weekend afternoon. I was feeling sleepy, so I took a nap i...

We Never Crossed That Fence by buthaya

Originally I wanted to post this story as a comment and realized this is way better story than a part of a comment. This is about a small wooded area in my home town. I don't know the name of the place but when I was in my school years I, as well as many of my friends, had to go near those woods...

Odd Rustling Sound by Zephyrin

This just happened to me last weekend. I was at my aunt's house watching her two dogs for her while she and her husband went out of town. They have a little short-legged yellowish dog named Hazel, and a fat old spaniel named Henry. I was sleeping in my aunt's room when around midnight I heard Ha...
