Female Spirit Or Succubus? by Dagod

I know it is stated to not post dreams but I believe this dream is caused by the paranormal. Please help me try to figure out what is going on. Last night the dream was very intense and disturbing. So for the past few weeks or so I've been having a recurring dream. I know this isn't a dream inte...

What Would You Call My Ability? Requesting Help/information by MaggieMay_Not

If you have read my previous stories, you will know I am no stranger to the paranormal. I actually consider existence after death to be natural, almost like a cocoon shed by the energy of your soul. In general I don't fear death or dead people. The living are bad enough thank you. This is a hard won...

Haunted Apartment Or Paranoid? by reyoflight

This is my first story on here. I have been an avid reader but am now too experiencing some things that you can hopefully help with.

My Dog's Growling by majarlika012

Before I go on with my story, I would like to give a brief background first about myself. I am not working in a call center but since I am working in an American company, it requires me to work on a shifting schedule because our operation is 24/7. We support supermarkets in the US, Canada and Aus...

She Always Did Like To Annoy Him by The8Ms

I've been reading here for awhile and have really enjoyed reading everyone's experiences. My youngest child is a bit of a night owl and this site has made the time sitting up with her much more enjoyable. Thanks! I thought I'd make my first entry one of the short and warm fuzzy variety... My m...

Warding Off The Evil Eye! by ajonverge

Hope All's good when you find yourself reading this. I was around 13-14 year old when I had this experience. This happened in Lonavala, a beautiful hill station in the Western Ghats in the state of Maharashtra, India. FYI, this is an absolutely serene peaceful town with a small local populatio...

The Mysterious Lady In The Woods 2 by ColdSoul

It's been four years since I last saw Kareena, the mysterious lady that I met in the woods. After the high school graduation I decided to go home to my parents' house that summer.

What's Haunts Our Bathtub? by Ghostofme

We moved into our house in 2001. It was a nice little house with two bedrooms, a kitchen, laundry room and pantry, two bathrooms and a living room. It wasn't fancy just ordinary and had four and a half acres of land that went with it which we rented to a local man to plant his corn on for his cows a...

Step By Step by findingthetruth23

I have just moved into a new house, AWAY from a troublesome spirit. Before I was dealing with a very nasty spirit, with regards to scratching his initials onto my glasses and moving an entire cupboards worth of stuff onto the landing. This spirit is completely different, I can just feel her. Now...

Horsing Around by Jubeele

During 2014, my husband and I went for riding lessons in the suburb of Box Hill, some 42 kilometres (approx. 26 miles) north-west of Sydney in the Hills District region. Once a month, we would pack up our riding gear into the boot of our SUV and make the 2-hour drive from home to the rural outskirts...

You Hear Them Too? by ERINISAWESOME

A couple years ago I had moved out of my parents' house to go to college, but I still came home on the weekends to visit them and would usually stay over night. At the time, my old room was being used for storage so I was sleeping on a lovely little bed made of about 14 blankets on the floor with my...

"mom's Fright Night." by BART43

This story I'm about to tell actually happened to my mom and my two older brothers. I don't know much about the details as I wasn't born yet at the time. It happened in the 70's.

Attacked By A Smokey Figure by DarkAngelx91

This happened to me back in 2013. I had just come home from work and the atmosphere in the house felt different than earlier that day. When I was starting to make dinner I felt very uncomfortable in the kitchen but I pressed on and got it done. Then for awhile after that the atmosphere seemed to ...

The White Woman by DarkAngelx91

This happened to me back in 2011. I usually never had any vivid dreams before this happened. I went to bed and fell asleep as normal but I had a very vivid dream that night which I still can remember to this day. I dreamed that I was in the car driving my normal route to work, when a woman in whi...

A Lifetime Entity by CrystalAwakening

I am 16 will be 17 soon. For my whole life I have been out of the ordinary. Some of my family were surprised at the strange happenings that followed me. A time that stands out is when my grandmother told me that when I was a baby I kept throwing my bottle out of the crib and she would give it b...

Phantom Doorbell by 3girls

I hope someone can help with my Moms' "issue". Over the course of about 2 weeks, maybe every other evening, between 7-9pm, she has heard a doorbell ring right beside her head. Normally happens while she's watching TV, winding down for the evening. My Mom's house does not have a doorbell. She says it...

Dark Presence In My Room by DarkAngelx91

This happened to me back in January 2016. One night I was on my laptop watching videos on Youtube when I came across the trailer for the Conjuring 2. I decided I'd watch it just to see what it was like since I'd seen the first movie. After I watched it I googled about the Enfield Haunting. I came...

Was It A Man-beast Spirit? by roylynx

I was tired last week working until late. I met up with my close friend and had a drink or 2 of gin lime and went straight home. We parted after walking awhile together, me to my flat and my friend to her home. I was really tired that I literally just dropped asleep on my bed with all my dirty cl...

The Dead Mans Ghost? by Avery

So its been a while since anything has happened in the house I'm currently in. In the late 1980's or early 1990's (before I moved in, and before I was born), a man died in the back bedroom. We have lived in this house for the past 3 years, next January will be 4 years, and things have only just star...

Peripheral Man Visits In Boiler Room by Kindly_refrain

This is by no means a scary or exciting account but it certainly was puzzling at the time. Even yet I have no definitive explanation but many people on this site have had similar experiences which lends an air of normalcy to otherwise inexplicable happenings. 18 years ago I was employed at a lar...

A Spirit That Follows Me by Iceball3

Hey, I am a 17 year old girl from Europe.

My Origin Of The Paranormal by ethereal_friend

I Thought They Were Just Trying To Scare Me by Girlfriend85

Up In The Sky by majarlika012

This is actually my mama, late grandfather, and uncle's experience in the year 70's. Back when the houses in the metro were still blocks away from each other. If my memory serves me right, as told by my mama, she was 6-7 years old then while my tito [uncle] was a year younger than her. The story...

Under The Bed by MsTeek

When I was growing up in far north Queensland I was told that a small bowl of water or a belt on the end of your bed would keep spirits away while you slept, unfortunately I found as I got older that it wasn't as simple as that. In 2013 I was 18 years old and just moved in with my first boyfriend...

Am I Losing My Mind? My History Of Disappearing Acts by Rosebudx

So, I am typing this on my phone so pardon me if there is any wonky formatting. My laptop has officially gone kapoot as I'm no longer able to charge it so this is really all I have at the moment.

Fredericksburg, Va House Haunting by MrRiggs

In 1992 I rented a house in Fredericksburg, Virginia following several years of living abroad. It was a rather pleasant house, a ranch design, in an older neighborhood.

Mr. Riggs Walks by MrRiggs

On March 2, 2004 I adopted a nearly 3 year old male Miniature Schnauzer (dog) named Mugsy. He was to be a replacement for my recently passed Schnauzer, also known as Mugsy. The matching names seemed to be coincidence. That they both walked with an occasional catch in their right hip seemed to be som...
