Latest Paranormal Experiences

Ghost Engraving Words Part 2 by EggMcMuffin

Guys, things just got real. If you haven't seen it already, part one was basically normal ghost things, such as things moving on their own and whatnot. But I have a very... Unusual update. I decided to hold a seance, to try to actually talk to the ghost. I was really scared to do it alone, so I conv...

Shadows On The Wall by Deciduous

This has been going on since I was around...I'd say nine years old and it still continues bugging me to this day. Ever since I was small I was afraid of the dark. I'd run to my parents room if I heard any little sound at night. Here is how the shadow nightmare started. One night... I had woken up a...

Unexplained Experience In A Hampshire Country House by Pilotpaul

Around 13 years ago my wife and I experienced something that still baffles us to this day. Her brother and his family were residing in a wing of a large country manor house near Preston Candover and had asked us over for a party at their local pub after which we were to stay at their place. On arri...

Lawnmower And Hammering by Tweed

Not sure if this really qualifies as a ghost encounter, but it's certainly odd. In around 2008 I began noticing the sound of a distant lawnmower in the middle of the night. It sounded way off in the distance. But because it's quiet in the middle of the night I could hear all the sounds you'd asso...

Phantom Sounds In The Kitchen by Always-Wondering

This strange incident occurred recently in my current home. I have no way to explain it other than a phantom sound. It was the summer of 2016 and the house was fairly hot. I was having a hard time sleeping in my bedroom, so I decided to go down the hall, to sleep on our couch in the living room i...

A Demon Said My Name And Made Me Sick by Alisha94

In 2012, my girlfriend of 2 years broke up with me and I was at the lowest point in my life, mentally. I believe this is the reason for what I went through... One night I was lying in bed about to go to sleep when I felt something playing with my hair. I knew it was paranormal but it didn't bothe...

The Thing By My Shed by Curly_1Lack

One morning a couple of months ago I was working in my back yard and walked around the side of my shed near the back of my property. I had a wheelbarrow leaning up against the side wall and when I walked past the wheelbarrow, something on a concrete pad caught my eye. It was a light brown/creme colo...

Anyway we lived on the 13th floor (yes there was a 13th floor) and everything ...

Disappearing Apparition by DocGreen

This story that I'm sharing took place nearly fifteen years ago, when I was about ten years old. After not giving it much thought for a very long time, I have had very powerful recall of my experience recently, and I'm sharing it in hopes that I can make more sense of it. It all started when I bec...

Was My Grandmother Letting Herself Be Known By Scent? by Elemental_Angel

My grandmother was from Hawaii and was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer (I cannot remember what type she had). She passed away in November two years ago, and all of us were upset, but knowing it was going to happen soon. I certainly was upset, because she helped me change myself a bit. I also had so ma...
