Ghost Made Itself Look Like Me by Carenna

This happened in an old apartment my parents and I used to live in, in Minnesota. I have a couple small, but scary stories. First story, I was about 5 or 6 and it was early in the morning and I was at school and my dad was at work. We had one of those cool, clear light-up landline phones. My mom ...

A Terrifying Visitor by thedivergentbosombuddies

I'm new to YGS so please don't judge if my story structure is a little weird. There was some weird stuff going on in my house today. My friend Maisie took a selfie on my phone and we could see it clearly had weird blurs all over it. We had come upstairs to investigate after hearing several loud ...

Terrified Of The Dark by HazMan_III

Some time ago I submitted a story detailing what I believed to be my first encounter with the paranormal. However, recently I was told of an earlier experience, though I must admit I do not have any memory of the event. Again, because the information comes second-hand, I can only relate what I was t...

Part 1- Confusion by misschichibi

I will just elaborate my stories little by little. I know there are a lot of people who can help me here, thinking that way... I am relieved *sigh*. As what I have said in my story, I am confused whether I do have this what we call "gift" or not. Way back to the year of 2011, I went hiking wi...

Was My Imaginary Friend A Ghost? by Jlobeats12

I live in Kent, and nothing much ever happens. No one is particularly in touch with their paranormal side; they all think it is "hocus pocus". However I, on the other hand, have always been in touch with spirits. There are a few baby photos where I'm looking to the left and not quite towards the...

Spirit Guide by Teresa26651

For as long as I can remember, I have had experiences with the "unexplained." I say "unexplained" because everyone has a different opinion, and for the sake of an argument, it is "unexplained." My first experience was when I was around the age of three or four, and I remember it all too well... ...

Was I Saved By A Ghost Or Guardian Angel? by Kelso_19

I normally don't get up to early, but there was a huge thunderstorm going on around 3a. M in the morning. It sounded like there was a war going on outside. The thunder pounded against my walls and the lighting lit up my room enough for me to see everything without any trouble. So since I was awake, ...

Is It A Gift? by misschichibi

I have read some of the ghost stories here and I very pleased how expressive people are in this site. I know people outside there who haven't experienced any of those unexplainable things won't believe US. My story is not very creepy or either spooky so I'll address it shortly. I haven't exp...

Lost Souls? by TheDeadSociety1

It started when I was about 2. My sister is 5 years older than me and she saw them too. We weren't sure what they were or if they were really there or not and I often wonder if I'm just a bit loopy, but anyways, I found this site about 20 minutes ago and figure why not share my experiences too. ...

Weird Breathing Noise From Behind A Church by Bdog77777

Me and my friend like to walk around the village at night. We quite often walk to the village church and behind the church there is a loud noise that sounds like someone breathing through their nose. But it is way too loud to be a human. Also we have heard the noise several times on different occasi...

Two For The Price Of One by jerryhend1

I really don't know what to call this, attachment haunting I guess. It started when I bought the house I live in now, well the house was a lake cabin built in the late 50's and as far as I know I'm the first one to live in it on a permanent basis. Trying to fill it up with furniture and living on a ...

Lucky Necklace by Kendall_m

I used to live in Portland Oregon, where our house was as haunted as they come. My mother and I both heard our names being called when we were alone in the house. I would see a small owl like figure when I would go around corners or while sitting on the couch in the living room. Beer cans would crun...
