Recent Paranormal Experiences

The Disembodied Voice From The Wood by Clairvoyant_Disease

When I was younger, me, my cousin, (N) and our aunt (J) went for a walk outdoors down the holler. Well me being the curious little kid I was I walked down over the hill on the other side of the road. I got a little way down hill, and on down the hill towards my right I hear my cousin's voice. "Savan...

My Friend Bill by groundzero7

Is this a horror story? I rather not use that word because it involves one of my very best friends in the distant past and there was no horror in the event I will describe. Let's just say extremely unsettling (to me at least) and you might term it as a paranormal event, whatever that is, and let it ...

Frantic Knocking On Ceiling by DandK

Several years ago during the week or so after my husband died, I had something strange happen. I lived alone in our house. One evening, I was in bed, crying again, and I heard light knocking on the ceiling outside the bedroom. I ignored it, thinking it was just strange house noises. I noticed it on ...

Two Incredible Saves by RedWolf

Most of you know I have a bad back but not to what extent. I have three screws that are loosening and you can actually see them if I have a tight shirt or if I lift my shirt. One is actually broken, these screws are about 1/4 inch thick. I have bad scoliosis, one of my ribs is touching one of the ve...

Aunt Sylvie's Computer Pranks 2 by valkricry

That title is a bit misleading, as this is about the summer I met my 4 x great Aunt and happened long before she played games with my computer; but I'm hoping it helps flag out the correlation of the two. Not so much for the readers of this, but for Aunt Sylvie. I know that reads rather awkward, but...

That Voice by Miracles51031

Brown_eyed_girl submitted a story that made a deep connection with me so I decided to submit my own experience about the voice. This experience takes place in the same house as "I Need My Mommy" (http://www.yourghoststories.com/real-ghost-story.php?story=8861) and "I Need My Mommy 2" (http://www.you...

Neighbors Ghost Opens Our Door by Caylo28

Cinco de Mayo my family and I were at the neighbors playing cards. I got this strange feeling I needed to go into the hall. When I stepped in the hallway I heard my 1 year old nephew screaming and crying. Following his cry I find him in the very back bedroom (master bedroom) in the bathtub! I know...

Tree At Farmhouse by munejabilal

This is my first experience on this website. I made new account to publish this experience on the advice of my best friend. It all started 2 years ago, when my school planed a picnic on a farmhouse. This farmhouse is school's own farmhouse on which the school plans picnic every year. Everything ...

They Can See Their Daddy by Zaruje

I have been babysitting the kids of my neighbor for almost a week now. A two year old girl and a 5 year old boy. Their mother and I weren't that close but still I always feel the need to help her since she's a single mom and her story about what happened between her and her ex-husband truly is a tea...

Enormous Black Deer by SoniaMary0023

A couple years back my best friend and I were sitting on our back porch smoking a cigarette and talking about nonsense. While we were talking I stopped what I was saying and was staring at this huge black deer with the biggest antlers I have ever seen. I thought it was something I was imagining unti...

The Voices That Saved My Life by Faith1990

Prior to the following experience, I wouldn't hesitate to blame some doofus move on my part on the "voices" I hear in my head. "The voices made me do it!" That was such a funny thing to say. Little did I know or understand back then that the voices you have "in your head" can actually be a real thin...

Gabriel 2 by tburgos305

This is a second encounter I had with Gabriel. It was about two months after I first saw him that I had this encounter. This also has a "santera" lady involved; a santera or santero A Santera (Spanish for "saint-maker" may refer to either: An artisan who creates santos y revultos and other Spanish...

Scary Internet Experience by mel8763

When I first started using the internet a few years ago, I was amazed at all the different websites that were available to look at. I don't have a home computer, so I would go to the library in both Sherman and Denison, which are located in Texas. I was on the website "ghostvillage.com" and happen...

Strange Man Kept Finding Me by VeronicaMarie

It was mid-May of 1981. My father had died suddenly of a heart attack about two weeks prior. He died on the same day escrow closed on the first condo my husband and I had bought. I was in a store in Mountain View on my lunch break, buying a few things for our new home, after recently returning t...

Slamming Doors, But Wait! There's More! by brown_eyed_girl

I have lived in my home for a little over 6 years now. From the time my family moved here, strange things have happened. In the past 3 to 4 months, the activity seems to happen more often. I tend to stay home alone a lot. My family is very loud and I'm a quiet person. That said, I will normally ...

Old Copley, Abandoned Hospital by valkricry

Old Copley use to be City Hospital back in 1886, and boasted 25 beds. Of course, by the time they closed in 1996 to move to a much larger facility, it had grown considerably, almost swallowing up the original Queen Anne 3 story structure. Despite the original part being declared a historic site, the...

Go Away! You Can't Have Him! by Miracles51031

I always hesitate before sharing something that is out of the norm, at least for me. This is another one of those moments. A few years ago, the teenage son of a family I know was in the hospital. One night during his stay, as I was meditating, I placed a shield around Zane, asking that he be kept...

Gabriel by tburgos305

Friends, sorry I been away for so long I been really busy with life since I joined the Army. This story takes place back in 2006 when I was only 19 years old and I was pregnant with my now 10 year old daughter. I was home alone one day staying at my grandmas house for my pregnancy and everyone was...

Closest Thing To A Demon by Tweed

This is not about demons or devils. This is about the man who is technically my grandfather. He died before I was born. No one mourned him, and I mean no one. He was a pedophile, alcoholic, violent, abusive individual. On first impression he was a charming man, handsome, polite, personable. But h...

Washington Island House Haunting by chmort

This is a long entry, so please bear with me. My family has lived in the same house since December 2001 on Mercer Island, WA. Mercer Island itself has an interesting history: Native Americans in the area refused to spend the night/live on the island due to the belief that it was haunted by evil ...

Wee Ones At The Window by Tweed

Sometime in either late July or early August 2015, husband and I woke in the middle of the night. Which is something neither of us normally do. What woke us, I guess, was an awareness. From my perspective I was cosy in bed fast asleep. Both of us facing the window. Then, very groggy, I awoke, ope...

Fireball by Tweed

The first of these experiences happened to my Mum in approximately 1962, she was around 8 or 9 at the time. This had a profound emotional impact on her resulting in a keen interest in Extra Terrestrials and inter-dimensional beings. However, it failed to instill in her future IT skills, hence I'm su...

Aunt Sylvie's Computer Pranks by valkricry

A few months back, I thought to write about my meeting my 4x great Aunt Sylvie, a witch, who lived in the foothills of Kentucky. I'm speaking in the traditional sense of the word witch. The woman had 'powers' and could do things that 'normal' folk just can't without trickery of some sort. (Notic...

It's A Fox! by Tweed

As if! This takes place Christmas (2015), the exact date I can't be sure. Somewhere around then, but not the actual 25th. Anywhoo, let's get cracking with the Christmas spirit! Turns out my Dad has become the biggest denier of anything paranormal. This has no doubt rubbed off from my Stepmum, ...

Last Time by mhyzthie_vHee

This will be my last entry for my stories about the creepy house we used to live in. This happened days before we moved out of the house we lived in for almost 5 years. And for me... This is the creepiest encounter my parents had with the entity there. I am about to graduate from elementary in a f...

The Blue Me by mhyzthie_vHee

This happened in the same creepy house we used to live in a decade ago. It happened one night during a blackout, (or in Philippines we call it a brownout). I woke up in the middle of the night with my sister beside me sleeping and I can also hear my parents talking in the living room downstairs. It...

The Cloak Entity by Humblekinele

It had to of been around two or three in the morning when this happened. I was asleep but I always wake up through out the night so waking up around this time isn't odd for me. As I was waking up I notice this figure standing by the window. It's whole body was covered by a cloak, and I could tell th...

Portal Or Wormhole... Or Haunting? by justmenoname

When my son was younger he always saw a lot of beings. He no longer does we had the pastor came to bless the house, along with a group of 4 others (and my son never knew the pastor came to bless the house, because he came when my son was in school. And we never mentioned it to him). During those few...

What Do Ghosts Need Money For Anyway? Part 2 by Miracles51031

The comments on my previous story about ghosts and money have prompted me to submit these two experiences. Both are taken from my Journal, with minor editing where clarification is needed. Thursday 3/08/12 I just walked next door to a convenience store at lunch time to get some snacks to supplem...

Always Afraid Part Ii by alina_nefer

As I promised I will continue to write more of my stories. As I've said before I have moved to UK nearly 5 years ago and began to work as a care assistant, just nights. There I have experienced the worst things ever. My first night was horrible for me, not because I have felt something but becaus...

What Do Ghosts Need Money For Anyway? by Miracles51031

I've debated for several years about submitting this but decided since there have been several other stories relating to the same thing, I may as well go ahead and submit it. As with most of my shared experiences, I am relying on my Journal entries for accuracy (getting old 👵) Easter 2012: My...

The Mummy, The Children And The Scary Man by Caylo28

When I was around 6 or 7 years old we lived in a duplex in the middle of town. My memory is a little hazy on the layout of the house because we didn't live there long due to the amount if activity but I do remember there were 3 floors. The top floor had 2 rooms, one was my parents and the other was ...

Ghost At The Work Place? by skyebg

This is a interesting story that my granddad told me recently. I have always been interested in the paranormal ever since I was little so he decided to tell me his story with the paranormal. My granddad has always been a blacksmith and he even had his own company which he ran by himself. Well, on...

Newtown Wandering Ghost by Lotus29

I've lived in an old worker's semi-detached cottage in Newtown since 1993. The house is over a 100 years old, and in a historic inner-city suburb. I bought the house because it had such good and positive energy and there have never been any paranormal issues while living here. In late 2003, when...

Weird Experience In Hotel Room by Lotus29

I've had paranormal experiences since I was a child, having a special gift of precognition and very accurate intuition. When I was younger I found these experiences frightening, but the older I get the more laid back I am about things and just find them interesting. I also have a very healthy scepti...

The Wide-eyed Girl by adina

The bedroom I was staying at in high school was avoided by relatives and helpers that came to stay before I moved in. They claim to get horrible nightmares about a woman in that bedroom. I personally never had any, and all my nights there had been comfortable except one particular night in 2008. ...

Walking On Power Line by airboy07

This takes place in Houston, I was 3-4 years old with my mom and her boyfriend at the time (now 20 years married). We were in the back yard BBQing, my mother was sitting in a chair to my left and Greg sitting to the right, I was in the middle with my favorite blanket. Everything was all good, unti...

Early Morning Encounter by Aman0409

This is the narration of my First Encounter that I had after I came to Mumbai. I have been staying in Mumbai ever-since then, and have had 3 more encounters precisely. They would follow in coming posts. Before starting the story, I would like to provide a small background for this story & the charac...

My Mcdonalds Is Haunted by Cman710

Despite seeing ghosts all my life I've actually had a peaceful life since I moved from my house. Until about six months ago. Three months after I started a new job. To put it bluntly, I have never seen a more active poltergeist in my life. I work at a McDonalds in a Walmart in Vegas. It's sup...

Asleep Or Awake by d3b8i3

This is my first account and only experience. I stumbled upon this website by chance. My experience the other night has ignited my curiousity into the possible afterlife for which I didn't pay much attention to before and was very much a sceptic (gotta see it to believe it). Here goes nothing... ...
