Latest Paranormal Experiences

Unknown Experience by kuriah

I would like to start off saying that this post is NOT a lie, fib, exaggeration, etc. This is my own experience, and if you are skeptic, read this (or don't, I don't care). I've had my own hit with a ghostly encounter before. Only once, though. I am not an expert on what happened, since it was aw...

White Figure, Dark Shadows by NotableMaple

My experience happened in my mid teen years, and I still do not know what I saw until this day. I have two events and both involve me being asleep. My first experience happened around midnight, and it was like any other evening. I remember falling asleep with my TV on and nothing was out of the o...

Not Only Folklore? by cloudy

I grew up on a farm in a very urban area, basically in the deep forests of northern Sweden. I've always been very close to nature and spiritualism, even though I have lived in huge cities for years now and not really been in touch with Sweden or nature. I've had quite a lot of strange unexplaina...

Carrying Evil Spirit by Saheed10

This is a story that happened years ago to my mom. She is psychic, although she did not develop it and closed her mind after what I'm about to tell you. When we arrived to Tijuana (yes! That Tijuana) she opened a little business. She was doing well for some years but then, one year in 2006 her sa...

The Ballerina Girl by MikeArcAngel

This experience mine happened roughly about 2 years ago while I was visiting my then girlfriend. We were getting comfortable on the couch watching some TV when I saw movement out of the corner of my eyes and I looked to the left. At first all I saw was a shadow but then I slowly started to see the a...

Are You Still Here? by SpazCat

The day was August 2, 2014. My younger cat, Penguin, of 12 years had suffered a stroke. My husband brought her to the vet and they revealed it was due to high blood pressure. She was sent home with fluids and 3 medications. She wasn't eating so I had to force feed her with a syringe. We had to ke...

Negative Entity Help by gigismum

I moved into this house seven years ago and I heard a few things upon first moving in but nothing that scared me. However, two years ago everything changed when I was watching TV and a commercial for a psychic came on. I was going through a rough patch with a lot of anxiety and depression. I kne...

One Unexplained Voice And One Odd Car Incident by Rarrkel

I have never believed in ghosts of any kind. I was brought up as a devout Christian and still stand firm by my beliefs, although my understanding of those beliefs has developed as I have matured. However, despite not believing in ghosts, I cannot deny I have had strange experiences that to this day,...

It Lives In The Closet by Brooklynnberceuse56

First off thank you for deciding to read my story. The following is about a few of the strange experiences I have had in my home throughout my youth (about 5-7 years old) and I will probably post more stories later about the experiences I had in my early-mid teens later. The first paranormal expe...

Nature Spirit? Elemental? by teriland1

Last year my friend "S" lived briefly in her ex-husband "C's" "pool cottage". She was in between apartments and he had taken over a large piece of property with extra room for her too. There is a big main house with swimming pool and the pool "cottage" had been available to their shared grown childr...

The Evil Within My Closet by christennnc

Because of the activity my family has experienced in our home, we have concluded that our house is haunted. I believe that my room is the most haunted room inside of our home. In May 2013, I began noticing some strange things happening in my room. My room became freezing cold, which was odd beca...

The Farrier by Mace

During my teen years I spent a lot of time on my stepdad's cattle ranch, west of Spokane, Washington. I was and still am really into horseback riding. Every weekend my best friend and I would venture out to the ranch to spend a couple of days with our horses, practicing for 4-H shows and having fun....

A Curse On Our Home by Zephyrin

My mom is a single parent who doesn't earn much money, so she was thrilled to be able to finally afford a new house for the three of us. We did notice some odd things about the house as we moved in. The third bedroom, my younger sister's room, had four different locks inside its door and glow-in-the...

Black Lady Of The University by bloodshoteyez

This happened when I was twelve but I felt compelled to share this. There was this urban legend on a university where I took my bachelor's art degree of Home Economics. There are countless of entities active in Central Luzon State University one is this Black Lady. I will share first my friend's exp...

The Ghost Of The Teenage Girl by sri_cit

Little bit of intro before the long story. This may not look like a ghost story at all in the beginning. It may look like some sort of psychological problems to many. But I think once you read what we have found out in the end may answer all the questions. Me and my wife both work in IT firms. We...

The Spectral Footsteps by LoveOfAbundance

I have been visiting this site to read everyone's wonderful stories for around two years. I like this site because everyone seems very supportive and gives non-paranormal possible explanations for posters' experiences. This is my first time posting an account of my own. It is not the scariest of sto...

The Sleeping Apparition by Claust

I have reviewed this experience repeatedly in my mind since it happened about fourteen years ago. I haven't told many people, not that it's anything to be embarrassed about, but I feel comfortable sharing it online anomalously. I know what I saw and I know for sure I was not dreaming the experience....

Curly Smoke by Eddo

It was 1987 and we were living in Pinner, Middlese, England. A quite road with mock Tudor houses. Our experience occurred one evening in our lounge. It was dark, the curtains were drawn, tableside lamps were on and we were watching TV. My wife Monica was sitting in an armchair opposite me and be...

It Done Or Is It? by SalesaSeiuli

It was back in 2007, I was only seventh grade when I first experience a demonic vibe. So my mom was telling my siblings and I about the aikus (ghosts) in Samoa just to scare us to sleep and how the two sisters took our grand uncle. I would say their names but these names are never to be mentione...

The Family House 2 by Trischa_D

So I posted a story about my "Family House" and seeing a black-robed figure floating in the hallway through a closed bedroom door, but I've had many experiences in that house and I thought that I would take the time to share a few of them. In the first segment of this story I talked about my da...
