Old Man In The Ditch on 2009-09-28

My grandma recently shared one of her ghost experiences with me, and I feel the need to share it with others. My grandma was driving home from a friend's house late one winter night, when she says she saw a car wrecked in a snow drift in the ditch. She stopped to see if anyone was still there an...

More Footsteps And A Strange Light on 2009-09-28

During the winter of 2003, I experienced something very strange, and somewhat frightening. I was spending Christmas with my grandparents, at their Kansas farm house. My grandparents had recently renovated the upstairs, and my grandma wanted me to be the first person to sleep up there. I agreed to sl...

Night Time Visits on 2009-04-29

To make this story make sense, I have to give you some background information first. I live in Tennessee now, but when I was six, my mom and I moved to Holland to be with my stepdad and his family. During the first year in Holland, we lived with my stepdad's mom and dad. Their house, though it has b...

My grandmother did experience this before our shared experience. Though I do not think that the two are related. Only because both me and my grandmother have experienced many such things. We have been told that we are just more sensitive to spirits than ordinary people.

And my grandfather says he has experienced spirit activity in the past, but not at this house. He believes my grandmother and me fully, and tries to support us in any way possible.
yes, I still heard the footsteps, and my grandma has been seeing those lights for going on six years now. She barely even notices them anymore
Jesus this guy was/is messed up. As a man who beat his wife, he got what was coming to him. Now if only he would leave you and your family alone.

Has anything happened to you recently? If so, would you please share it with us?

Good luck to you and your family

thank you for your input hauntedexpress, I'll keep an eye out for any such traits.
If you are a religious person, I would advise praying for protection before you go to sleep, it helped me with my problems. Something that is aggressively interacting with you needs to be made to stop.

Your experience is in no way paled by the other experiences talked about on this site. Yours is actually very similar to many of the stories I have read. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I've been tapped on the shoulder a few times while I was watching TV. It is very disconcerting, but I have found that these are harmless gestures.

Thank you for sharing your story joe. I must admit, I would not be able to stay in that room after seeing somebody stand at the foot of my bed.

Amazing story, thank you for sharing it with us.

But one has to wonder, was somebody trying to pull your leg? Eh, it would be a fairly elaborate hoax for somebody to pull off.

Again, amazing story. I'm willing to bet Iron Hide was trying to keep his fellow trucker safe.
To elaborate on what laniparis said, when a person enters REM sleep the body is paralyzed. The brain does this so that a person does not act out his/her dreams and hurt him/herself, or others. People who wake up during REM remain paralyzed for a short while, and often report "feeling a presence" in the room. This leads to anxiety, which could account for the shortness of breath.

I am not at all denouncing what you experienced, I am merely offering a "logical," rather than "paranormal," explanation for what could have happened.

Thank you for sharing your story with us.
Thank you for sharing your story with us. I have never seen anything like what you described, but I have had my dog act similarly to yours. It is very eerie to see a dog go wild at something you can not see.
Hahaha, I love it. I come here to read stories, and then the comments as a form of research. (crossreference the comments and see what shows up most often) But, instead of finding comments relevant to the story, I often find personal arguments. Please keep your personal problems OFF of this website.

As for you story buffalo, very interesting. I don't really know what else to say about it.

It seems as though things are drawn to you and/or your family. I guess it is up to you to decide whether or not this is good.

thanks for your comment Katie. And, don't worry about sounding like a broken record, what you said makes a lot of sense 😉

I too might think that hormones or teen poltergeist activity was to blame, but most of this took place well before I was even close to being a teenager.
OK, I am strongly trying to ignore the posts of zoajet, which I advise you do as well. I might not be able to explain the orb or the hand, but I can give a possible reason for the feeling that you are being watched.

Sometimes strong EMF's (Electro-Magnetic Fields) can cause a person to feel as if he/she is being watched. You can take a simple emf detector and sweep your house for strong EMF's. If you find the source, try to have it repaired or replaced. This could very well eliminate the feeling of being watched.

Hope it helps you!

Thanks for posting your story for us to read triscint. What an odd experience, I wonder who, or what, it could have been in that motel8 room.
I have a very similar problem. While driving at night I will have several street lamps turn off either right in front of me or right over me. When I look back in my rearview mirror, all of the streetlamps behind me are brightly lit. I don't know what it could be, but you are NOT crazy

Thanks for your comment rhodes68, not much has happened to me since I was about 14. But, every now and then I have some experiences which are just plain unexplainable.

I am pretty sure that it was my grandpa, something I forgot to mention in my story makes me say that. My stepdad told us two days later that he had seen my grandpa standing in his doorway at night. Also, I had a sense of joy, not fear.
Well, Miss_Violet, I will not intrude in your personal conversation with zoajet, but I will say that I strongly advise against using a ouija board. It opens a portal and makes it possible for uninvited spirits, and even demons in some cases, to come through and plague you and your family.
