Latest Paranormal Experiences

Body Vibrating Upon Waking During A Nightmare by Justjess

A few months ago I had awoke from a nightmare and my body was vibrating as if I had a cell phone in my chest. I was about 4 months pregnant and can't quite recall what the dream was except that a ghost or a spirit was sticking its hand into my stomach to get my baby. As I slowly woke, I had firs...

Meeting My Great Grandmother by chaoscontroler

So I'm not really sure where to fit my experiences. I'm currently 27 years old and lived in Portugal all my life. My first ghost encounter (and only real sighting) was my great grandmother. I was at my grandmother's place with her and my mother and we were following my grandmother to her bedroom....

New Orleans Nightmare by BoyMomOf2

I've been reading stories on this site for a few years. Mostly, trying to understand my experiences in my own home growing up. It's been 6 years since I stepped foot in that house and the hair on my neck still stands up when I think about what I experienced in that house. My story takes place in New...

The Red Lady Is Staring At Me by thisweirdasian

I'm a lurker in this page for years, but it's only today that I had the confidence to actually submit a story. Anyway, a short background. I am a "sensitive". I can feel and sometimes see things that normal people don't feel or see, since childhood. My grandmother said it's because of my lineage....

The Ice Cream Truck Makes A Return Visit by yomomma

It's happening again. I knew when I started writing my stories down, going through them in my mind, talking about them, acknowledging things that happened in the past, that somehow it would make them strong again. I know that sounds crazy even somewhat dramatic but I also know that is what seems to ...

The Night I Met Maria by yomomma

February 22, 1993 at 2:01 p.m., I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I had morning sickness the entire pregnancy. I gained only 11 pounds which put me in the high risk category. Needless to say, her birth didn't go as planned. I was induced into labor at 36 weeks because she had stopped growing...

The Disappearing Doll by GinaFowler

Realizing as a teen that the house I grew up in was haunted, this is my earliest memory of an occurrence that, as a child, I didn't understand. I was born in 1977, four minutes later than my identical twin sister. Growing up, we did everything together. When we were around five years old, Santa ...

My Apartment Was Very Active by AndiKate81

I will start this story by saying that I am a firm believer in the paranormal, but I've never actually SEEN a ghost. First I'll give a little history on myself. I've had a life of tragic loss. My identical twin sister died in a car accident when we were 6, then my dad died when I was 16. Needless to...

Giant Shadow Like Man? by brittnicole

Growing up, I had many paranormal experiences. I saw a shadow man in my house quite often and never got any weird vibes from him. I have not seen anything in at least six years. Well, last night, I was on the patio with my two small dogs. Our patio has a brick wall all the way around it. Down th...

The Shadow Man And Phantom Knocks by kentucky_believer

I was born in Northern Ohio, where I lived until I was around ten (when my family moved to Kentucky) and had never had a paranormal experience until that time. The drive from my home town to our new house (a small house that was roughly a century old) took roughly six hours, and it was late at night...

Grandma Was With Me by lisabag

My amazing Grandmother got sick. Her kidneys stop working, so they started her on Dialysis. It wasn't going very well, so she wasn't able to leave the hospital. Family members were going to start taking shifts to spend a day with her at the hospital. I was so excited for my day. It was on a Monday a...

Tall Black Demon With Glowing White Eyes by Kth19300

I have been feeling like there has been something watching me the past few years and last night I got to see what it was. I have come to figure out that I am not the only one to see these demons. I wish I could know what it is called. But let me tell you how I got to see this "thing". I was comi...

I Saw A Full-length Ghost by DavidEasterling

One night I laid down to go to sleep. Maybe after 10 minutes I turned over, then I saw what I thought was my girlfriend standing next to some shelves. I hollered out, "What are you looking for honey?" No response. The room was mostly dark but did have some light coming in the room, enough to see...

Cloaked, Hooded Figure, Lucid Dream by SPiNX

Cloaked hooded figure! Pointy nose or almost like a abstract pointed jaw... I had a lucid dream encounter. I became lucid in my dream (laying down sideways on a couch). I began floating slightly in a fetal position in mid-air, floating around a corner inside a house. Beyond the corner I reach a ...

Little Boy With Red Hair by chelscp11

I am new to this site, but I have always wanted to tell my story to a larger crowd. I have not told many people this story. It took me a year to even bring it up for the first time. It just seems so insane and farfetched that I figured no one would believe me! Please give me your thoughts. I am ...

Red Eyes In The Closet by Raygen

This is my first post ever. I have told very few people about this experience. When I was 14 I lived in the country about 20 miles outside of a small town. I loved it. One night I was in bed on the verge of sleep (You know, when you are about there but you know you are still somewhat awake). I d...

The Mist by SinAngel

I was laying on the bed next to my girlfriend. We had just eaten breakfast and we were just laying there as I listened to her talk about the upcoming music fest. The lights in the room were off, the only light in the room was coming from a partially open window curtain letting the sunlight through. ...

Experiencing Spirits At My Friend's House by RNK

I have never believed in ghosts, but I've always liked hearing stories about them. My friend always told me stories about their "haunted" house, but I never truly believed her. She invited me once to sleepover, and I thought I'd finally check for myself if she had been lying all the time. And so I w...

Strange Woman In An Abandoned College? by DecdipTV

Me, my Dad and my cousin all decided that for an interesting YouTube video we should go into an abandoned building. There were not many around where I lived so we kind of had to travel. When we first pulled up to the building, I instantly felt this weird vibe. It was as if something was trying t...

My Parents' Second House by Bibliothecarius

I recently submitted a story about an unseen presence which made me uneasy in my parents' first home. In a very slow version of what is now called "property flipping," my parents improved that house to make it more valuable, so they could sell it and move into a nicer house a couple of miles away in...
