Recent Paranormal Experiences

Old Man Of The Cave by valkricry

On a story of mine, Melda asked if my brothers were also sensitive to the paranormal. I allowed that my older brother, Kevin, had experienced a few events and that I might share them at some point. Kevin led a nomadic lifestyle. It wasn't that he was lazy, or couldn't hold down a job, the boy had a...

Kids Stuff by czamantha

I have been reading a lot of post in here and I am really learning a lot of things about paranormal activities, entities and so on...

Another Warning Of Caution by spiritwaiting

This is just another addition to the last experience I posted, about my resident spirit. Around 3 weeks ago, I met the mother of my kids friends, I got an uneasy feeling, and new I needed to keep my distance. It comes with being able to read people. New friends, they have just recently started ge...

Still With Us by makenna04

My story isn't a scary story, but it does have to do with a spirit. My late cousin died in a car accident in January 2011, both her and her best friend out of the five passengers. The truck was driving at high speeds on an icy road, drinking was involved, and the driver ended up losing control causi...

Screams In The Old Hospital by EveryHour

Last summer, my friends and I went ghost hunting at an old former hospital in our town that is said to be haunted.

Living in the house at the...

A Big Bump In The Night by thegreenmachine

This happened when I was 16 years old while I was still living in Davao City with my mom. Due to insufficient financial resources, we rented a room in an old boarding house.

The Tuck Shop Toilets by Lollipopspace

My goodness. I have had my share of scary occurrences over the past few years but this has to be my scariest occurrence. This happened the other day and I am so scared from it that I cannot be alone.

My mom told me that when I was just a small kid, my dad had this Japanese friend who brought us toys from Japan.

Seven Of Us by Hommie

Back in 2011, five of my colleagues and I went to Vigan, Ilocos Sur for a 2-day tour.

We rest for a bit, unpacked our things, freshen up and then headed out looking for...

The White Lady In Tierra Verde by Hommie

It was way back in 2004 when I ran away from home and stayed at my friend's large 2-storey house in Tandang Sora with four bedrooms owned by his older sister who lives overseas. There were 4 of us staying there including my friend's 3 year-old son. That place has become a safe haven for most of my f...

Mysterious Children In The Mountain by Hommie

I was in high school when my dad planned a trip to visit our grandparents in Catanduanes, which is one of the provinces here in the Philippines.

The Devil And The Farmland by nalchen

One of the most unexplainable troubled moments I have faced with the unknown took place when I went with my mum to India to sell off our land to the Highway authorities, as they acquired the land for expanding the coastal roads and reducing the traffic congestion in the area. We flew down from New H...

G Shows Himself To Let His Wife Know He's With Her by michellefs622

This past weekend, I spent the weekend with my ex-mother-in-law, N, in her 140 year old house. I've been to this house many times and have never been afraid of anything except the basement. It gives me the creeps! Her husband, G, passed away suddenly last December 18th. She's been lonely and I ...

Saw Him For The First Time by Narmada

This is actually my first story. First of all sorry for my bad English. I experienced this 3 years ago. It was my grandmother's 1 year alms giving. My mom wanted me to help with dishes. I remember everyone was talking in the TV room and I went to the kitchen alone and I remember I was holding an emp...

The Witch Of Dittmar by Anny82

I don't know if you believe in god. I can't even truly be sure of that question myself. What I am sure of is that there are forces, things, or entities out there that we do not understand. Things that can possibly harm us, or at least terrorize us. Things that I would love to stay the hell away from...

Uneasy Around This New Little House by CreepyWednesday

I came to the point where I pretty much believe in paranormal and supernatural, although I haven't had very much experiences. To make my experience much clear, I have to give a little background. Ok, so I went to my boyfriend's house for a few days. In the same yard there are two houses. The...

One More From Stoughton by waltrow1274

There was one more incident that happened, this occurred in the living room. We have a fireplace in the living room and on the back wall of the fireplace there is what looks like a face, a guy with long hair and a beard. That's not the story, it's just a cool effect of the ash buildup on the back wa...

Something Spoke by roylynx

My friend had adopted a yellow parakeet. For years the parakeet had been squeaking and talking simple words, it will address itself "Passarinho", little bird.

Hotel In Arlington, Tx by txgonzo

The Black Lady And The Girl by czamantha

I have been reading real ghost stories for quite sometime. I don't know why, but I found it very interesting though others think it's weird. But this is my first time to post my own experience which happens 8 years ago. I was born and raised here in Baguio City and all those years of staying here...

The Sepulveda Ghost by ABCNinja

It was Thanksgiving, as I rode home from my sister's house in San Fernando Valley. The streets at night in Los Angeles are normally pretty barren, but since it was a holiday weekend, I felt like I was peddling through a ghost town. I was twenty two at the time and sharing a one bedroom apartment in ...

My Therapist's Office by sherm784

I go to a shrink in midtown and every time I'm in her office I see human shapes in my mind floating up and down when she is talking. They are usually around the size of her head but sometimes I perceive them to have other facial features that don't resemble hers. Sometimes I think it is because ...

My Life Story And Now by JellyBean12

My name name is Sharon Clawson. I'm new on here and I go by the username JellyBean12. It's nice to meet all of you who have paranormal experiences.

The Chair by Krom1987

It's been awhile since I've had to submit a story for this page, but recently things have been happening in my family's lives. Now, in other posts I've talked about how I've been haunted in the past, and you'd think by now I'd be used to it, until my grandmother decides to go to a garage sale tha...

The Cloaked Woman by Imcr7

This happened about 15 years ago and is something that has puzzled both myself and my two friends who witnessed what we saw to this day. It was on my 10th or 11th birthday and it was late August. I live in a normal suburban development just outside of Buffalo, NY. Before I tell the story, please...

Ghost Of The Golds by yourstrulie

It happened way back 2008. A Japanese with our locals approached my dad asking if they can search his parents' lot where their old house was standing because someone told him that there might be golds underneath the old house. At first my dad was hesitant and didn't believe them but eventually h...

Strange Smell In My Apartment by Caves2016

My husband and I have been living in our current apartment for almost 2 years. I am skeptical if these occurrences are even paranormal but would love some feedback.

The Only Haunted House I Lived In by Gigakhan

Like I wrote before, my family is not religious but superstitious. This happened in the early 90's, we lived in a house in Williamsburg, I was 7 I think. The house seemed like any other nothing out of the norm. My mom was a single parent and was getting assistance with her rent. (that played a big...

Tomten On Holiday? by Manafon1

A couple of years ago I submitted an account to YGS with the somewhat sensationalistic title, "Demonic Voices In The Night". In the fascinating comments that followed, Tweed steered me in the direction of the Tomten, creatures described in Scandinavian folklore. Valkricry then provided samples of an...

Snake Shadows On My Wall by EveryHour

I grew up in a very haunted house. I have had countless paranormal experiences but one of the first ones is still very vivid in my memory. I used to always see shadow people, but this encounter was very different. I was very little, maybe 3 or 4 years old at the most, yet I still remember it like it...

A Parting Gift by valkricry

My parents had the habit of moving every few years. Us kids were never privy as to why, for us it was just a fact of life. As a result we were rather use to being the 'new' kids, and in the interim of making friends, despite the difference in ages we were friends. Depending on where my parents had d...

The Crying Ghost At The Hotel Galvez by Ghoster2K

December of 2005. Galveston Island, Texas I decided to get away for a week or so during the first week of December, so I headed down to Galveston.

Sounds And Electronic Interference In New Home by Confused21

My husband and I just moved into a nice little townhome. We've only been here a few months and at first everything was fine.
