Recent Paranormal Experiences

Spirits And An Unknown Entity by thatqueenb

I'm going to start off by stating that I'm a little bit of a skeptic when it comes to the paranormal. With that said, I still try to keep an open mind. This is something that mostly happened to my younger sister and my father, and I'm not sure what to make of it. I'll let you draw your own conclusio...

I Need Some Help Dealing With An Entity by Cas

I don't talk much about my "spirit friend" but let's just say he's starting to get on my nerves. Firstly, let me state that this is all true, and I am of sane mind. It all started when I was 8 years old, and my older cousin decided to play around in witchcraft, she messed around with some crap and o...

Something On The Bed by CoffeeSpaz

Towards the end of 2012 (circa August, maybe September) my family (at the time, my sister, her two children and my brother-in-law) had made the decision to move to the Phoenix area. Since there were two particular areas we were looking at moving to, we took a weekend to spend some time in the area a...

He Couldn't Run That Fast! by Meldel

My parents were married for about two years at the time of this incident. The two-bedroom house they stayed in used to belong to my mother's step-father who left it to her in his will. It was known as a semi-detached house. The piece of land next to the house was large enough to build a second hou...

Dorm Ghost by monkeynavigated

Freshman year of college and I was visiting my friend, Catherine, at University of Georgia in Athens. She lived in Brumby at the time, a girls' dorm. Being underage, we spent our night smoking pot and goofing off in her room with her next door neighbor and another girl, Danielle, who had also gone t...

The Man Of Shadows by haniibee

My name is Hani and I've been experiencing things all of my 20 years. I'm considered, I guess, a sensitive of some kind so I can very easily feel, hear, and see spirits, as well as they can feed off my energy no matter where I am. Now that that's over with, I can finally start with the man penne...

Glowing Yellow Eyes by tomandcarrielester

I had yellow round glowing (like a light), what my son and I can only describe as eyes staring at us. The dog was on the enclosed porch going ballistic, when my son and I had to go calm her. It was the middle of the night and the dog was so ferocious, she seemed as if she wanted to tear through th...

Demon? Possible Incubus? by ArianEgyptianGirl_89

9-2-17 I am a Female, 28 years old. Back in 2010 or 2011, I had my first experience with this "thing". The first few years it would come very few times a year to be with me sexually. The very first time it happened I was shocked. I was shocked because I didn't really know that these kinds of thin...

Daughter's Imaginary Friends by Kest

It's taken me a long time to try to figure out how to start my experiences with my youngest daughter who I will call Jacey (not her real name). I have mentioned Jacey in one of my other stories about the house I grew up in when I was a teen, and I think she used to be able to see things. When these ...

Is It Her, Another Manipulative Spirit Or My Mind? by Allicatt

In the last few months a lot has happened, some good and some horrible. My baby girl was born a few months ago and while it was a rough start things balanced out and she and I are healthy. All things seemed normal for awhile, life was good; a healthy happy baby, Maggie was about to start school,...

Haunted Road by Enlightened1959

My house was located near an old two lane highway just outside the city limits of a town named Elizabethton. This area was settled in the late 1760's, its historical notability is among the most fascinating in the entire state. Its home of the first permanent settlement outside the original 13 colon...

Grandma And Grandpa's House by southcelt

I spent a good amount of my childhood living with my grandparents in a very rural part of West Virginia. Their house, well, the whole area where they lived, was haunted. There were many times that we'd hear footsteps in a room nobody was in at the time, paper towel rolls unrolling themselves... Thin...

Lifted Off His Feet by Meldel

This happened to my Dad some years back. The house my parents were living in was a two bedroom house. There was a small patch of grass in the front of the house and the veranda was just two steps from the front gate. When visitors arrived during the day, they always walked to the back of the house a...

Haunted Hotel Hertfordshire by Gavinwickens

This is my first time telling this story, hope you enjoy it.

So 28th Feb 2016 we was off to what we thought would be a romantic night a...

The Dead's Account by roylynx

This story actually happened to my sister. I was not involved this matter, but I heard comments from people around and was questioned by my sister herself about it. My sister is using the famous "apple mark smart phone", recently she got the "version 7" and had downloaded an application called "W...

She Hates Men by valkricry

In 1992, I had the happy fortune to reconnect with my best friend from high school. We shared the type of friendship, that though 16 years had passed by without communicating we picked up right where we left off. Bonus points: our then husbands got along and our kids all adored each other. It wasn't...

The Glowing Circle And A Hug by Jazolinlea

Life is not fair. It is full of love and loss. My high school class lost too many people (way too young) to accidents, sickness etc., before we even graduated. We all felt pain at such a young age. One in particular struck me quite hard, I looked up to him, he was special, he was one of my best frie...

Who Is With Me? by loneybone

For as long as I can remember I've been alone, as a young girl I was always bullied and abused by my brother. He would always hit me and people would always treat me bad at school and my mom didn't bother to see what was wrong. I'm not in school anymore and I am in my mid 20's. Every night as a chil...

House With The Purple Porch by hannagrace2017

When I was about six years old, my family and I moved into a five bedroom home in south Omaha Nebraska. This part of town was well known to be super sketchy. In all honesty it wasn't the greatest place to raise a family, however my family wasn't the richest and the rent was cheap and the house was b...

Mortuary Affairs by wth_devildog

This is my first account of possible paranormal activity I've experienced in my life. This story takes place in Brigham City, UT during the winter of 2003.

The Women In My Room by Siara

A couple of months ago, although I slept by 10pm, I would still wake up the next morning exhausted to go to work. During the second month, one morning I just sat on my bed, asking myself why do I still feel exhausted after having enough hours of sleep. Few days after that (it was the weekend- Sat...

It Pinched Me by Hermit

I suffered from sleep paralysis when I was still in college. In my dream I'm seeing a white lady with no face approaching me in a zigzag motion. It scared the hell out of me since I'm completely aware that I was just dreaming but couldn't move my body or even open my eyes. When she's almost few step...

Displaced Entities by StaceyK

This story is my first paranormal experience when I was young. I grew up in a very religious family in my mom's home province in the south. When my father died, my mom decided to leave Manila and stay with my grandmother in the province where she can teach in a local private school as a teacher. The...

The Summer I Didn't Sleep by cloudy

I can't recall how old I was when these events took place, but judging by what bedroom of our house I was sleeping in at that point, I must have been somewhere between 9 and 12. I have wanted to share this story for quite some time but the truth is that I haven't been able to build up the courage to...

The Girl In The Cemetery by Tunedin

After posting my first story about my nan visiting me, I have decided to share an encounter that my mum had a few years ago around 2001. My nan sadly passed away at the young age of 43 when my mum was only 19 and was buried in the local cemetery. When my grandad passed 16 years later in September...

Curious Ghost Or A Relative Who Wants To Say Hi by JLynn87

There were a couple of ghost experiences I had in my life time, but the one that I'm about to share happened to me in January of 2014, and it's the most recent one that I can fully remember. During this time I was still living with my mom, older sister and brother. I came home from work at 6:30 ...

White Glowing Eyes Watching Me, Activity Escalating by LittleBelle

It started on August 15th. I felt like someone was watching me, which is not unusual my home. It is active with a very specific Spirit who I believe used to be an owner of the house and is very particular of how he likes things arranged and moves about the house without malice or intent. (My home wa...

The Boy Out Past His Bedtime by manipatsy78227

I would like to reflect on a time when I was a child. At this particular time, I was about 7 years old. Now, my parents weren't very strict and didn't have a set bedtime for us and I remember playing late outside this night. My younger brother, Ernest, was playing with me. He was 5. After chasin...

Soldier Shadow Girl by Lince1307

Let me tell you first that I come from a family of "gifted" women and as such I've been able to see and/or feel spirits from an early age. This story in particular took place in Ft. Jackson, SC while I was at the Physical Rehabilitation Unit after suffering a fall during basic training. One nigh...

Schizophrenia Or Incubus? by ForbiddenRose

I am 18 years old and have an incubus, or at least I believe I do, and I do not know what to. His name is Rhyder. He has been with me ever since a young age. Back then he was trying to hurt/kill me by sitting on my chest and I couldn't breathe; in a way I had to fight him. For a while he disappeared...

It Wasn't Supernatural... Or Was It? by Ann4shadow

The year was 1970. I know this because this happened when I was in kindergarten. My family Mum, Dad, two brothers had all moved in to a brand new 4 bedroom ranch style home in Huber Heights Ohio. We had an acre of land that had once been farmland. Our home was built on a single street with homes on ...

To Be Heard by AmbitiousSlave

Since my first personal accounts were rejected, I attempted but couldn't find any other places network wise where I could be believed... Since I was a child and moved into my current house I have lived in for about 10/11 years (basically my childhood), I have recently (as in the last 4 or so years...

Didn't Abuelita Just Come Back From Church? by thething45

So this particular encounter will require some backstory, my apologies if it is a bit long winded. Both of my parents where born and raised in the same small village in El Salvador. It's really far out in the country side at the end of a dirt road. The village is called La Aldea on the Chalatena...

3 Visits To Canyon De Chelley by naturestacey

The first time I went to Canyon de Chelley, I went to 3 or 4 overlooks on the north rim. Each and every time I stepped out of my vehicle, I had overwhelming feelings of despair... And death. It made me feel horrible and didn't know why I was feeling that way. I drove over to the south rim and I had ...

Be Aware, Pray For... Who? by roylynx

I do not know if any of you will know anything about meanings each flowers will have but the following is kind of related to it and it is a little eerie. I was walking home after going to the GYM. My instructor told me to walk as much as I can since it is good for my back (I suffer back pain). It...

The Only Exception - My Paranormal Experience Part1 by wolfsnow916

Before I start, let me just tell you my views about the paranormal (ghost and elemental, etc). I am a believer that those things/entities really exist but I haven't really seen, feel or have any contact with them. I am now 27 years old, married and have kids and not one single experience with them (...

Obese Entity In The Corner by felidee623

This took place in my apartment in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. It was almost 7pm, and I had to go get my boyfriend from work at 8. I planned on cleaning and finishing the laundry for the next 45 minutes, so I put in my headphones and started cleaning. I was listening to a song called "Demons" by Tech N...

A Celebrity Visit Or Delusional Fangirls? by ladycastlemaine

This follows on from a comment I made on someone else's story regarding their possible connection to the late Chester Bennington. It's about a famous dead musician and I'm not comfortable with mentioning their name because A) I don't want to seem deluded and B) Some of my fandom will recognise my us...

Woman In The Window by lilpeachyghost

This happened a good month or so ago and hasn't happened again since but it's definitely something that keeps playing on my mind and I keep coming back to. I have no idea if it was paranormal or just someone being a creep but it felt... Wrong. So, I was sitting on the floor in front of the elect...
