Latest Paranormal Experiences

A Pressure That Took My Power by Sally1985

This is hard for me to say because I have read a lot of the stories and the critics are pretty tough. This is a true story with all my heart and I still wonder all the time what the heck it was that happened. I lived in a place called Big Bear Lake California for a very long time. Born and raised...

Forty Days by iambec

In 2006, my parents rented a house near the high school I was going to attend. Luckily, a friend of theirs knew someone renting out space. We were renting the front half of the house, and an old couple (landlord's parents) lived in the back half of the house. When you enter through the front doo...

First Sighting by msscarygirl

My name is Abby. I moved into my house last May. And before I tell you about the haunting I should tell you something. The woman who lived the house before me died in the house. She had 2 granddaughters who died in the house. A 4 year (Lana) old who leaned over the railing of the stairs. A little to...

Haunted College Apartments by GForce09

This is about a year and a half ago now, but I felt I should share my experience. I was living in an apartment complex in a college town with 3 roomates, though there was really just two of us (my best friend and I). The other two guys always were gone back at their parents homes or work. After ...

The Start: Man In The Chest by StardustedLuna

For as long as I can remember, there has always been things that happen to me without any reasoning to them at all. I've never wrote about anything that has happened to me, due to the fact that most people would probably think I'm crazy, some people think I might have a third eye, those who believe ...

What Do They Want With Me? by Courtenay

My name is Courtenay and I will be 18 years old next month. I have been no stranger to ghosts. I have seen them and heard them from being very young. My first experience was at my Granddad's house. My Grandma had died not long before this event. We were on the upstairs landing running around and ...

The Final Goodbye by skepticsu

This was my father's experience. I have no personal experience in paranormal sightings and am more of a skeptic (hence the username). But, even though I have studied science and work in Information Technology, and somehow come up with explanations for most things, I kind of want to believe in the ex...

The Ghost Child by bloodshoteyez

It is my second time to share this story online but on a different site. Probably you had heard of this. This happened three years ago in my friend's apartment where I decided to sleep over twice. After my first night I noticed I had difficulty sleeping in my own apartment. When May visits there wer...

Ezekiel by Hecate0

Here is one of my most powerful ghost/spirit stories to date. I found I could move energy through my hands over 20 years ago. I meditated and asked what it was for but it took me several years to calm and balance myself to find that this could be directed and controlled for healing. I have studied s...

My Wonderful Spirit Guides by Hecate0

This is my second story here. My first was about my father, now deceased, and how I still feel him near me. I have been spiritual since I was a child. I meditate, and am an energy healer. I call on energy help from what many call spirit guides. I feel them around me (when I tune into them). Three...

Getting Over My Fears by ChrissyMoon

Just to be fair I honestly don't think I can upload the picture and video that goes with these experiences I'm truely sorry but my computer broke and I can't upload with my phone. If you want to see them ask and I'll m...

Associate Ghost by sushantkar

Here I am going to narrate an incident which had taken place during the summary of June 2005 with my elder brother and me. We all had gone to attain marriage of my maternal aunt's daughter at Satna, Madhya Pradesh (Central Province of India). My elder brother works in a Pune based MNC (Multi Nationa...

Dad And The Cow by smacrocknash

It wasn't that long ago if said the word ghost to me I would automatically "say your crazy, no such thing, go smoke another one " That was until the following had occurred. Living where I do, you seldom ever get an unexpected visitor. Just me, my family, and the cows. It was late October and I had s...

Something In Our Hotel Room by yumagirl

For our 15th wedding anniversary me and my husband wanted to do something different than the classic romantic weekend in any beach. This time we wanted to be adventurous and do something more exiting. We decided to rent a room in a haunted hotel. The Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee, AZ looked more a...

North Garden, Va Ghost by Hhlt1991

I grew up in North Garden, Virginia. Until I was 21, I lived on a farm off of Plank Road (*Editor's note: Name of farm has been withheld due to privacy reasons). When I was younger (in middle school) I had one of the most awesome experiences ever! I was playing Nintendo 64 with my father in my r...

Should I Give In? by SegaGK

Lately I've been having a lot of Sleep Paralysis and bizarre sensations while I'm either very close to falling asleep or already asleep and waking up to a spinning/vibrating feeling. This happens almost every night and I'm starting to get kind of scared of falling asleep sometimes. I've read on...

The Red Baron by Mace

Last fall my mom and stepdad offered to let me move into their new house, rent free, while I saved some money before moving to Europe. Since it was a beautiful Indian summer, I took the opportunity to do some garage selling to look for furniture for my new room. I saw a small garage sale and d...

My Great-grandparents' Recollections by Aimeisafox

My family is a big, loud and festive family of Italian descent. When I was around ten and my great-grandparents were alive, we used to gather everyone at holidays and birthdays. Then my Great-grandfather would start telling stories of his youth, when they lived in the country. Those stories always g...

My friend and I were in the living room, and his two little siblings were running amok in my friend's room and the living room. My friend told me to stay in th...

Sleep Paralysis Or Reality? by AnksCutie

The incident I am going to share with you happened with me a year ago. First of all I want to tell you that I have a problem of frequent sleep paralysis but it wasn't that frequent when I was a child. This problem grew after that horrifying dream or reality that I faced a while ago. I used to liv...
