Attached From Childhood by AngryMada

As a child starting from around 6 years of age until very recently at 17 years of age I have had strange reoccurring paranormal events.

My Haunted Childhood Home - Part 1 by Udon555

I never considered my parent's house to be haunted until I was much older. Even though I encountered strange events, I didn't know what a ghost was and could not explain it as a child. My first encounter with the paranormal that I can recall was when I was around 6 or 7. At the time I liked slee...

Family Ghost Stories by laurdav

My grandmother had 6 children, the youngest being my mother, so I have a pretty extensive family on her side. They have lived in the same house for years and raised all 6 children there, and grandchildren, so the house is very sentimental to us. I wasn't a huge ghost believer in the past, but after ...

The Disappearing Address Book by WelshGirl

Ten years ago, my Stepmother was very ill with cancer and did not have much time left. But rather than allowing us as a family to sit and wallow about the 'whys' and 'what ifs', she encouraged us all to be open with our feelings and remember the holidays we'd had as children. I actually built up mor...

2 Glowing Orbs by Wildstar

My sophomore year of college near the end I was lying in bed with the guy I loved. He was asleep, and I was lying next to him holding him feeling peaceful and near snooze. There was a lot of love in the room, that I clearly remember - it felt better than usual. A round light about a foot in diameter...

She can tell when either or both of us are upset or mad. She'll be there to give comfort for those reasons or to give aid if we are not fe...

Spirit Moving Baby? by HeartlessAngel

So this isn't a story of mine personally. I've never really had my own encounter with the supernatural, and honestly, I'm not sure if I should be disappointed or not. No, this story actually includes my Girlfriend. When she was about 10 or 11 years old, she and her family (Dad, Step mom, Step Si...

The Bracelet by Halloween2013

When I was about 17 or so I talked with my dad one night about magic and ghosts and stuff.
