cosmogal926's pictureI have had paranormal experiences throughout my life which have sparked an interest in ghosts and haunted places. I'm basically a what you see is what you get kind of person and always believed in treat others the way you want to be treated. I have ZERO tolerance for trouble makers, phonies, sanctimonious know it alls, and screaming drama queens.

I enjoy watching or reading anything regarding the paranormal, and I especially like hearing about the experiences of others. Being a member of this site has not only expanded my knowledge and interest, but it has also lead me to meet and become friends with a great group of people. A few of us have even gone on our own overnight ghost hunt, which was an amazing experience.

My experiences are posted on this site, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy reading about yours.

Ghost Hunting With Loonies 3 on 2012-06-13

On March 24th, 2012, I went on an overnight ghost hunt with zzsgranny, miracle51031, stephyw2001, and clever210. My 2 brave adventure buddies; Chrissy and Esther and myself drove 9 ½ hours all the way from New York to Mansfield, OH. When the opportunity to do this came up there was no way I was lett...

The Gardner Pingree House on 2011-03-16

In the summer of 2002, my ex-husband and I went on vacation to Salem, MA. I remember being so excited to finally get the chance to visit one of the most historical and haunted places in America. Once we checked in at the Carriage House Inn B&B, I grabbed all the brochures I could find and started to...

The Last Laugh on 2010-11-08

In the summer of 2008 my husband Patrick and I were invited to a friend's house for a barbeque on Staten Island, NY. The house was a new development on a cul-de-sac. The land was all forest before it was purchased and constructed into a quaint little community. All the houses were identical in struc...

Haunted Pocono Vacation on 2009-12-07

During the summer of 1990, my friend Tracy and I were 14 and the best of friends. We went to the same high school, liked the same music, and spent countless hours and weekends together. Naturally we were thrilled when Tracy's mother won a trip to the Pocono Mountains and invited me to go along with ...

The Earthquake Ghost on 2009-09-08

This story takes place in late September of 2001. My ex-husband John (not his real name) and I lived in a 3 bedroom apartment in Brooklyn, NY. We never experienced anything paranormal until we had an earthquake. One night I was torn out of my sleep by a very loud cracking sound and then an eve...

Man In The Black Suit on 2009-06-16

Hey guys, I'm back with another story from my childhood. The following experience took place when I was around 14 or 15 years old. Strange and unexplained events took place in the apartment I lived in since I was around 4 years old. I have seen, heard, and felt things that both frightened and intr...

The Crochet Nightmare on 2009-06-08

This story takes place in the early 1980's. I was around the age of 7 and just like any other little girl I loved my dolls. The house next door to mine was owned by two sisters Annie and Pauline. They were the nicest ladies on the block. In the summer time they would take out their folding chairs an...

After The Visit on 2009-06-03

I recently posted my first story called, 'The Visit'. This next story describes things that happened after that. Now I don't know if some of these occurances were caused by the same ghost/entity, but I know for sure most of them were not. When I was around 4, I had seen an apparition of a man in ...

The Visit on 2009-06-03

I have been visiting this site for a while now and really enjoy reading the stories. There have been a number of ghostly encounters that have happened to me since I was a child that I would love to share with all of you. The first story is as follows: In the late 70's when I was around 4 years ol...

Hello intotheairwaves, I really enjoyed your story. Like Miracles it had me on the edge of my seat. The impression I got was something must have been watching you. Whether it was a human spirit, or an elemental I think something was up to no good that day. The voice mimic'd your mom to make you believe she was deeper in the woods so you would follow her. Luckily your instincts were to rationalize before you went running towards the back of the woods. Who knows what could have happened if you did, you could have gotten lost or fallen and hurt yourself. I also think that your mom might have thought there was something going on but suggested it was your imagination because she didn't want to frighten you. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and take care 😊

Oooopps! Sorry I got them confused. Thanks for letting me know.
Since I read this story I have had my doubts. Although I do believe your daughter is experiencing things of a paranormal nature I got the impression that certain things have been exaggerated or embellished. On my own, I have researched some things, and just an fyi, people on internet forums will tend to do this just to validate what they are reading is true. I have researched your claim at the GM Renaissance Center and this is really what got me. Yes they did lose power in August of 2015 for a little over 2 hours. It was documented that the power went out around 4pm and came back on around 6:15pm but within those 2 hours they evacuated everyone and people were stuck in elevators it was NOT SAFE! You claimed that when your daughters put their hands on the window all 4 buildings went dark. You also stated that it was out for around 5 hours. No evacuation, no explanation, and you claimed that guests were walking around complaining of no wifi. Then when you checked out the power and computers still were not working. My question is how did you pay your bill? Then they called after you left just to tell you the power was back up? You must see how this raises some questions. So in August 2015 it made the news for a 2 hour outage, now in March of 2016 it happens for 5 hours and it's not news. Then you try to flip it and say that you called and finally spoke to someone who said they power down periodically to save power. So then how come nobody not even the staff new what was going on that day? Look I understand that when something is happening you can not explain and your mind is all over the place it is so easy to get some facts mixed up. Again... I do believe something is going on. I just feel at some point this took on a life of it's own and went from a puddle to a tsunami with all the bells and whistles. Just my two cents on the implication that you are not who you say you are, fake names, accounts and all that mess. It doesn't matter to me. Some people come here anonymously just looking for an answer or explanation and that is perfectly fine, but when you start friending people on facebook, emailing, and getting to know some members on a personal level your true identity should be no question. This site has been hit so many times as miracles and zzsgranny have mentioned with fake profiles and stories it's crazy. So yes, maybe we as members and mods are more guarded than we should be but if we learned anything it's how to spot the untruths. So you can take this however you want, I am not bashing you, criticizing you, calling you names, or otherwise. I'm just calling it as I see it. Miracles, zzsgranny & Rook have been here for as long as I can remember. I became a member in 2008 and I can honestly tell you they are not bullies. They are just calling it as they see it. I really do hope that you and your children are ok and will overcome whatever is going on.

Hello and thank you for sharing your experience. I have seen so many documentaries and shows centered around the hauntings of England especially Edinburgh. It has a lot of history and I would love to visit one day. The Terror and Torture tour would be the #1 on my list. After reading the previous comments and your responses to questions others have asked, I'm going to give a supernatural opinion. It has been documented that people have felt exactly the way you did when a spirit tries to "jump" them. Why this particular spirit chose you could be a number of reasons. Vulnerability, spiritual openness, familiarity are all reasons spirits chose a person to try and jump. Maybe it wanted to relay a message through you, or try to tell their story. Each document that I have read or heard about all claim to have the same symptoms, even psychics and mediums have experienced this. I hope I was able to give some insight into your experience. 😊

Kindly Refrain, Thank you for sharing your experience. It does take a couple of screens and scrolls to change the language so you would have had to do a lot of skilled table leaning. It is true most of the elder generation are not tech savvy but I believe once they have passed on its easy for them to manipulate electronics 😊 I believe your parents were letting you know they were there.
Hello RedRaven5, I really enjoyed reading your experiences I have to say they gave me enough of a chill to raise a couple of hairs on my arms. 😨 I agree with ladydarke and believe the woman was the child's mother and somehow the child passed away in the yard. Your dream gave me the impression that the woman is going to continue on this loop. I would say she is residual because as you explained she looked over you, around you and went about her business, the only time she showed interaction was with the cop in your dream. I believe the spirit of the child was intelligent and tried to communicate to both you and your husband. I'm glad the Gatorade bottle of Holy Water and prayers helped. LOL! I had to laugh at that because as my ghost hunting buddies know I bring holy water with me on our hunts and bless us before we enter. They make fun of me but... Hey my motto is No demons allowed. 😉 😆 Thank you for sharing this with us and take care.

Bringel, this is a beautiful story ❤. I know exactly what you mean about music and how they can trigger memories of certain people or times in your life. I have no doubt that your Grandparents were saying hello especially since you found out they were going through their collectibles at the time. Your story made me think of a good friend of mine who passed away in October. I was in my car one day and the song "See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa came on the radio I started crying and couldn't stop. Next time my husband was in the car with me and the song came on. He said, I can't, I just can't listen to this song. It makes us both too sad thinking of our friend. Thank you for sharing this with us and take care. 😁

Three amazing accounts, thank you so much for sharing them TJYAKI. I have no doubt that each family member came to visit your daughter before they crossed over. They each gave her clue so that when she told you what was going on you knew exactly who she was talking too. Going in my fav's ❤

Countryguy, I did a little Google'ng and found out that the Irvine McDowell mansion used to serve as a treatment hospital for Trachoma. Here is the wikipedia link for the mansion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irvine-McDowell_Park
What I find interesting is that Trachoma is an infections eye disease that causes roughness of the cornea and can lead to blindness. Children were more likely to have and spread this disease. Now you said you saw a little girl with "Solid Black Eyes". Now I'm not sure if Trachoma was deadly but this child could have had the disease and passed away from something else. The history of the mansion does fit with your experience. Thank you for sharing this with us and I would like to hear of your other experiences as well. 😁
Hi Ollie, This was a very interesting account. I am glad that your wife was home at the time the case started melting and that there was no damage to your home. It definitely seems like the previous owner was attached to the sax and was being protective of his property. Luckily your sister-in-law was able to communicate with the spirit and let him know that his sax was in good hands. Thank you for sharing this with us. 😁
Hey granny - I thought the same as Miracles. I remembered a few details from this as well. It is comforting to have these messages sent by our loved ones. And it doesn't even have to be this elaborate event, the slightest things they do just to let you know that they are there is a blessing. I'm glad he got through to your mom too. ❤

Savannahbelle, your experience is the reason I am petrified of driving on country roads. When you look in the mirror and all you see is complete darkness behind you it freaks me out. I call them "Tales From The Darkside Roads" 😨 At least you had your friend with you and she saw the figure also. It is great when you have validation. You both were brave to go back and investigate. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Creeeepppy! But I like these types of stories. Sounds like the old kitchen staff was not happy with your choice of music 😉 Back then I would have freaked out too, but now the investigator in me would have brought a recorder with me just in case. Thanks for sharing this with us. 😁

Hi Mack - I am big believer of these types of things. There absolutely was something or someone looking our for you that day telling you Not to Rush. I am just glad you listened. It has happened to me a few times. I remember once I was at the beach with my friend and we had agreed to leave to beat the traffic. So we packed up and headed towards the boardwalk. As we passed one of the shops we decided to stop and have a drink on the boardwalk. When we got to the car and on the expressway we were met with a lot of traffic and a complete standstill. There was a 10 car pile up just ahead of us and a helicopter came and had to airlift people to the hospital. We looked at each other like OMG if we didn't decide to stop we would have been in that accident. Thanks for sharing your story. 😁

Oh my goodness Sarsem your story gave me goosebumps. It is both sad and heart warming to hear the story of this poor little boy. I am happy to hear that this lady was able to cross him over and re-unite him with his family. Oh and when he said "tell my mum and sister on earth I love them" was the sweetest. Thank you so much for sharing this incredible story with us. Going right in my fav's. 😁 ❤

Lily122, I am also going to agree with Dandk and sds regarding your husband in the sense that he might not be lying, just concerned or confused by what happened. I too would like to know what the doctor's said about you fainting. Did they say why or what caused it? If I would have seen and heard what you did I probably would have fainted too. I'm glad that you didn't seriously injure yourself. Has the activity continued since you been back home from the hospital?
Hi savagepotato, (cute name) 😁 Thank you for sharing your story. First I have to ask if your friends surgery was the result of a traumatic event? People who have bad accidents or if something happens to them while they are under anesthesia can bring back something from the other side. If for even a fraction of a second a person crosses into the spirit world it is possible for something to piggy back into this world. Another question is Did your friend have experiences before the surgery? If something was already in the home it could have seen your friends weakness and vulnerability as it's chance to strike. Nasty entities, and the dreaded (D word) love to prey on the weak. I understand how scared you both must have been after your friend was scratched. 3 claw marks are never a good thing. I'm very glad that you and your friend were not seriously injured or worse in the accident. How has everything been after the incident? I know you said your friend is trying to forget but I'm curious to know if the activity continued or stopped.

Hi Jodie_S, These are the type of experiences I love hearing about. Your grandfather stayed at the house to watch over you and your Nan still doing some of his normal routines. Although they are a little startling it is also comforting to know that your loved ones are still with us after they pass. Your grandparents sounded like very sweet loving people. Thank you for sharing this with us. 😁

Hi moon-gang, Wow that was a crazy creepy experience. Finding your diary only to see someone or something else wrote horrible things about you must have been terrifying. I am glad they never got the chance to hurt you or your family and that things calmed down after the blessing. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Knowing this than yes, I can now see and agree with the little girl being the spirit. It would make sense that she is attached to your family. Ok regarding the other spirit after your explanation of how your son feels and what was going on with your little ones surgery it seems that it was just looking over him in a protective way, and perhaps it wanted your oldest to face away because he didn't want to scare him. Regarding your hubby, thank goodness you made him go to the doctor and get checked out. I constantly try to get mine to go for check ups but he is so stubborn. I told him if I ever feel like he needs to go, I will drag him there myself LOL! 😆 Thanks for your response take care. 😁
