Mill Valley Santa by ABCNinja

I have enough material to entertain any campfire audience through out the night, when it comes to ghost stories my trunk is full of them. And when I'm into story four or five, I myself start to believe I'm full of shiat, but believe me, these stories are real. This one is about the time I cam...

Resident Spirit Giving Me A Heads Up by spiritwaiting

I have written some of the resident spirit in my home.It's a friendly one, and has quieted down a bit since my last cleansing. We have an understanding I suppose. But as of lately, I have noticed in quite a few incidents, that this one tends to warn me of things to come. On one occasion, durin...

Pop by Melda

Fergie's latest submission "House Sitting" spurred me on to recount these events. Throughout my life I have had very vivid dreams which on many occasions have actually become reality.

Nightshift by Chow-Chow

I'm just newly registered 'cause I love reading real experiences of the paranormal. Although for me,"paranormal" is not the correct word. Because we and everything we do,say,everything that surrounds us, is made of energy. And energy (the good and the bad one) never gets lost. It simply transforms i...

Late Night Visit by LitaOktaviany

This experience happened when I was about 13 years old. I'm pretty much an easy to be scared kind of person so until I was 20 years old, I slept in the same room with my mother.

3 Knocks by Juli

I have always been interested in the paranormal but at the same time I've always been skeptical and try to find ways to explain the things that happen.

It Giggled by tonichi

To start with, I would like everyone to know that I'm the type of person who would look for rational explanations on everything. Not that I'm a skeptic or anything, but as someone who has 2 degrees under his belt (not bragging. Just making a point), I believe finding answers as to why things happen ...

Pink by Miracles51031

This experience is dedicated to Macknorton. The following is taken from my Journal. "September 1, 2012 I was just standing at the sink, literally, getting ready to run water in the sink. I heard a little girl say what I thought to be "pink." I turned and said, "I heard you. I heard what you j...

I Think I Got Tickled By A Ghost by TheParanormal_Cat

Every day now, I feel like I'm being constantly watched. I'm not sure why, and maybe it's just my cat. But, sometimes when I'm alone, I feel a light finger stroke my foot. If I'm standing up, it happens somewhere on my rib cage. It's kind of creepy that this happens, because I have heard a voice a f...

Chennai, India: 14.04.2009 I was in my early twenties (now 31), and wished I had a girlfriend.

Haunted Condo by vala

I decided after posting my first story, I would just tell my stories in chronological order. If you read my previous story, you know that the house I grew up in was haunted and that I believe that a lot of the paranormal activity originated with my father (who is not a nice person). So this story...

Possible Ghost Following Me by jersey4ever

This all starts when I was in high school. I use to live in Upstate New York in a house that was built by my great-grandparents a long time ago.

I had set the alarm clock for 645 am. I woke up on Thursday, at 704 am and missed the alarm. I checked the alarm clock, and it was still set for the correct time.

Clunker And Scrambled Hours by Tweed

Last year I became a godmother, or faerie godmother, as is my self-appointed title. Last month I was babysitting the godson, or 'the Child' as we like to say in an ominous tone. 'Oh it's the Child, bring me the child' and so on. We also call him 'Boyo' 'cause it's funny. He's a placid baby, no lengt...
