Latest Paranormal Experiences

It Won't Leave My Puppy Alone by KJ-girl93

I've submitted one story before, and this one sets in the same house. This one is recent, as I've only had my puppy for 6 weeks. There has always been some sort of activity in my home. It can stop for almost a year, and then things start happening again. I live with my mom, we have 3 bedrooms, m...

Constant Rattling by Bonnaroo

Growing up I lived in the middle of the woods. No neighbors for about a mile on each side and we own 60 acres of forest then a swamp after that. So basically I lived in the middle of nowhere. One summer when I was about 14, I was out in the middle of the woods playing with my dog Max (I'm an onl...

Grandparent's House by kc99

I lived with my Nan and Pop for years while I was little. The house they live in has two parts, the original part that has the dining room, lounge room, bathroom, hallway and two bedrooms, the extension has the laundry, office, kitchen, living room, games area, a small bedroom, master bedroom and an...

Multiple Experiences In One House by MercuryStar

When I was about nine years old, I didn't believe in ghosts. I thought that they were just characters in scary stories. When I moved into a new house I discovered that ghosts weren't just stories. I had multiple experiences with my new house. The first week we lived there I woke up in the middle of ...

Boy In The Tree by stewieguy

I have many ghost stories to tell, so I'll start with the first one. This is the story of the time I saw the boy in the tree. I was about 8 years old, and my family took a trip from Texas to Mexico to visit my Grandpa. He lived with the housekeeper in the slums of Mexico. The days visiting ...

The Clown From The Halloween Store by HauntedKatStories

So, this year I went shopping for Halloween decorations. I went to this store called 'Spirit Halloween.' My mom said her friends recommended it. When we went inside, there was a lot of cool, realistic Halloween scares. There was one that I really liked. It was a bloody clown, and when you step on th...

Ongoing Bad Energy Disturbing Sleep by mff

I have never written about this before. I think my recent troubles sleeping are related to spirits that have become connected to me. For several years I have been woken up with the sound of a closet slamming or other bang and with a sense that there was "someone" in our room, terrified to look a...

Bill And Charlie by Searching_Stars

This experience I had around the age of 14-15 years old. My best friend I met in high school gym class. At first we didn't like each other for the longest time. She would always pester me and I would ignore her. It was a cycle of sorts. But eventually, after a month of trying, I became friends wi...

One Autumn Night by Caesar_Augustus

During my freshman year of high school my oldest brother told me a story of how he and his friends visited an old run down farmhouse in a small clearing in the woods not far from where we lived. He had heard that the place was haunted, and he and his friends were always into that sort of thing so th...

Taps And Glares by DUDEIMTHEKINGS

2006, My first house. It was a beautiful blue house with lots of land surrounding it. There was nothing wrong with it, except the graveyard near by. Since my village is in Italy and older than America, some of the deaths here go back from a long time. 2010, I loved my house, I wanted to stay here...

Every October by cruzie

Every single house I have ever lived in has had a spirit or two hanging around; I've told my mom that I'm convinced they follow us. We have weird things happen all the time including doors opening, tapping sounds, footsteps, and other typical "haunting" occurrences. What happened two years ago w...

Spooky Goings On by Jennilou87

So it's been a long time since I last posted a story and a fair few things have happened to me since. There are several stories I'd like to share with you so this submission might be a bit long. The first I'm going to tell you takes place not long after my friend died. In the area I used to live ...

Am I Crazy? Sreiously? by Sam222

This is a collection of a bunch of weird events, that if I explained to someone they would laugh and think that I'm crazy. 1) I think that this is really crazy, I don't really believe that it happened but It must've. I was riding in the car looking out the window and one car that drove by had thi...

The Pale Face by Sam222

This story is going to be short there isn't much to it, but I'm not sure what I was seeing. This happened several times and they were all pretty much the same. So I'll describe just one of the times because I only remember (that's how much similar they all were), but I know it happened more than onc...

News-paper Fluttering? by LoveParanormal

I never had "THE" actual ghost encounter until date, wherein you actually see or feel some entities around you. I always heard something eerie every time. This incident happened with me in June 2012 in one of our relatives's house. Me and my mom had gone to their house just to give them a visit. ...

Nishi by sushantkar

I remember when I was a kid my mother used to drop me to my school. On the way to my school there was a well and I don't know why, quite often my mother used to take me near to that well and asked me to poke at it so that I could perceive the depth of the well. I must confess here that I from my chi...

Wide Awake by mantisshrimp

I don't know if you can amount these experiences to ghosts or entities, but I want to share and find out if anyone has had similar experiences or if anyone may know what is happening. It began when I was little. I remember loving ghost stories and being spooked (I still do). However, like any ki...

The Lady Of Ridgewood Avenue by Fearghais

In 2007 my partner and I moved into an older home in the outskirts of the historic district of Gainesville, GA. It was modest but also very charming to us, just perfect for our first house purchase together. The house had only two bedrooms and just one bathroom, something very common of the homes...

Visit From Grandparents by Curious61

I've always believed that deceased family will come and visit and also escort you when it's your time. I also believe that the young have a strong propensity to enjoy these visits and are more open and accepting to them. My daughter is a case in point. Her fraternal grandparents died when she was ve...

White Owl And A Creeping Feeling All Around Me by dstroberg

Thanks for taking the time to read my experience. Ever since I can remember I have always noticed a white owl flying above me wherever I am early in the mornings before the sun has risen. Whether I was headed to school 10 years ago or when I am on my way to work now, there it is flying above me. I h...
