I am interested in my faith, family and career. I have had 'occurances' or 'experiences my entire life, but was raised to put it aside. I have found this site to be wonderfully helpful and educational!

We can not say what truly happens after we die and that there is the same time line for every one, but it is obvious that some take time passing to the Lord and others have so much un rest. Getting these stories out and documented on this site is great therapy!

Ghost Stories from KimSouthO

So Many Shoes on 2011-09-21

I have had many, many spiritual or paranormal encounters. Many of my stories are posted to this site, as a matter of fact. For many years, I have been able to keep my home (not my neighbors) but my home fairly peaceful. Now, I am not so sure. There are small occurrences that are making me wonder. ...

Missed Dinner on 2011-09-19

As my husband and I raised our family, we were lucky to meet a couple who would become very dear friends. Eileen and I would even trade baby sitting favors as our children were not that far apart in age. As our families grew and evolved, we enjoyed many barbeques together, we belonged to a lot o...

I Thought It Was Cinnamon on 2010-10-06

As you may remember (if not, all of my previous stories are on this site under my profile) I have had many experiences and seem to be cursed (or blessed, depending on your opinion) to be susceptible to things paranormal. Now that I have finished my background, on with this tale. We had a cat name...

Laboratory 2 on 2009-03-18

As I approached the locked gate, I noticed that sunrise was just beginning sending the horizon into a riot of blues, pinks and purples all vying for attention. It was so peaceful coming in to work at this time of morning without much traffic and all the hushed tones of color. I coded in my pass a...

The Laboratory on 2008-12-22

Working in and around the medical field since I was fifteen (I lied about my age to have a job and help my mom) I guess you could say I have worked in just about any type of an office or hospital you can imagine. I have been in large hospitals, small private clinics and laboratories. Each of these a...

Motor Cycle Ride In The Rain on 2008-12-22

It was the middle of August and the harsh wind blew hot and humid, kicking up a storm for the evening hours. Off to the north the black clouds had started to brew and roll. It was about 6:30 PM and my date was late. He would not tell me where he planned to take me, it was a surprise. Now, being 30 m...

Neighbors 2 on 2008-12-09

As I left the house for shopping, the wind picked up and pricked a chill on my cheeks. This is fairly typical for Nebraska in December, so I thought nothing of it. I walked about ten of the twenty feet to my truck, head down and hands in pockets. The only thing plaguing my mind was what was need...

The Neighbors on 2008-11-10

The real estate market and the number of foreclosures on mortgages are higher than ever before in history. Unfortunately, this has not spared the Nebraska area. Our next door neighbor, Mrs. McKenzie, became very aged and was placed in an assisted living facility about 5 years ago. She had a beaut...

Office Occurances... Again on 2008-10-06

I sincerely believe that when tensions are high, we exert a lot of wasted energy. I also believe that the energy exerted can then be used by entities (for lack of a better word) to manifest. Tensions and frustrations have been running pretty high at work lately. The economy issues touch us all an...

The Last Appointment on 2008-09-02

My mother passed away in August of 1996. She and I were very close and as I was attending nursing classes when she fell ill, I was able to provide some of the health care she needed, brining us even closer. The very last time she left the house I had taken her to a doctor's appointment. While lea...

Gray Lady, 25 Years Later on 2008-08-04

As the flowers started to bloom, I realized I had not had an incident with the gray woman in a few months. I was glad and grateful. If I didn't see or deal with any thing like her ever again, it would be fine by me. My Mom found a new apartment, larger, brighter and in a bit of a better neighborh...

The Gray Woman Is Still Here! on 2008-03-18

My mother and I returned home on New Years night. My sister arrived just as we did, being dropped off by her friends parents. When we entered the apartment, the Christmas tree once again laid on its side with the lights on. I had turned them off the day before when my mom and sister had left the apa...

Another Holiday Experience on 2008-03-12

It was early New Years Eve, evening with the twilight shining on the snow. I sat at the window of the apartment staring out at the cold and snow. It was freezing and the roads were very icy. I heard the television drone on in the back ground imploring all the celebrating and partying to be careful a...

Holiday Season Experience on 2008-03-04

It was freezing outside, Christmas just around the corner. We had just celebrated Thanksgiving; I can not say I was happy about the holidays. My parents had recently separated, my mom, sister and I moved into one of the many apartments we would inhabit for the next few years, and life felt to be at ...

Meeting the Deceased at the Wake on 2008-02-12

My dad had 7 sisters and 5 brothers, making 13 siblings in his family. As they grew up things were pretty rocky, financially. Some married pretty young and began their own families, moved to other parts of the United States and began their own lives. Having said this, needless to say I have many, ma...

Warning by Phone on 2008-01-29

I have written a few other stories regarding my office and the strange occurrences within the building and around it. Well, this last week and a half have been right up there! I have a private office with a private phone line that also can receive calls from the entire business, one of those mega...

Good Advice on 2007-12-17

In a couple of my other stories and comments, I have indicated that 'things' have happened to me pretty much as long as I can remember that have something to do with paranormal. When I was a child, I was told not to let my imagination run away with me, that I needed to stop playing with my imaginary...

A Visit from Arnie on 2007-11-12

As I left the office, the only thing I could think about was getting out of my suit and heels and into some sweats and tennis shoes. I was looking forward to relaxing as it had been a very long day and the end of the week was near, the weekend holding a promise of maybe some relaxation and rest. ...

Julie's at Peace on 2007-10-29

I attended grade school; middle school and high school like most people do with many of the same people present year after year. You get to know the people you attend with, some by faces, some by name and some you have friendships and more long standing relationships. There are some people that affe...

New Office 4 - The Final Chapter? on 2007-10-19

I have submitted a few stories regarding my new office and the occurrences that plagued me since moving in. To say this move has been interesting would be an understatement. Taps on my shoulder, voices, and conversations, being asked by disembodied voices to come home with me, doors opening and slam...

New Office 3 on 2007-10-02

I had promised I would keep everyone updated that read my last 2 storied regarding my new office. For a couple of days, things were going okay. I was still hearing the whispered conversations as I opened the door. I was still being tapped on the shoulder, but I chose not to respond any longer to the...

New Office 2 on 2007-09-25

You may have seen my original story about my New Office a couple of weeks ago. I decided to do an update, because, well, I am at a loss. I have had many encounters since being a child, they never completely stop. I see 'things' others don't; I see 'things' others do. The same with sounds. I hear the...

New Office on 2007-09-18

No matter where I go, what I do, strange (maybe paranormal) things happen. I have posted a couple of other stories, those are of past accounts of some of the major occurrences I have experienced and I feel that this site is a perfect format to share these happenings. My office has just over than ...

My Cousin and the Ouija Board on 2007-09-07

Any of you who have read my comments to others can tell I am absolutely against Ouija boards. I had not posted this story yet because, well, it has taken me some time to put it into words. My husband who is a staunch un-believer in spirits and entities (although he feels UFO's are a possibility - go...

The Strange Room on 2007-09-04

I just returned from a business trip to Kansas City Missouri. The seminar I attended was at a very old but lovely hotel in the area. I chose to stay in the same hotel to keep the expenses down for the clinic, you know, not have to get a rental vehicle or transportation. The rooms were absolutely lov...

A Visit from Dad on 2007-08-15

On January 1, 2006 at 5:57 AM my father passed away. All of my family was there as we had been keeping vigil at his home for several days knowing the end was near. He had been pretty much unconscious for about 2 days and kept weakening from that point on. It was very difficult to have him go, but he...

I Was There! on 2007-08-01

I am a Christian, not a 'holy roller' but a Christian. I believe in God and Christ and the Bible. I try to live my life as a decent person and raise my family as such. As a Christian, I have tried to speak with a few ministers, even a Catholic Priest regarding these happenings. I have been told that...

Curious, had you or have you ever met or spoken to Victor? Had you heard about him prior to this occurence?

Very crepy indeed. Do you still live near the house?

Thanks for sharing,
God Bless!

Absolutely Faxcinating!
I had never read or heard th estory of Pemberton Hall. I did read articles on the internet after reading your story.

Thanks for Sharing!
God Bless!
Terrific story! I love the history and your connection to the history, at least the feeling of connection.

God Bless!

Fantastic story! I wonder how many of us had occurences as teens pr children that we never examened?
By the way, your teen adventures are no worse than most.

God Bless!

How do you distinguish demonic laughter? I am just curious.

Please keep us posted,

I read both of your stories. I want to say that I agree with you completely regarding not uing the board anymore. Apparently this 'Levi" was let through on the first session, or one of the earlier sessions. Keep up with the prayer and with not letting it intimidate you.

Keep us posted,
God Bless!
ummmmmm, hmmmm. I am not sure what the others mean by going and eating something but I would be interested in seeing your explanations for the holes in your submission,

God Bless!

I must disagree with Nysa. Shadows are not always ghosts. I believe a ghost to be once human, shadows on the other hand may never have been human. Is thjs what you were refering to?

God Bless!

The only communication I would entertain with this 'entity' is to verbally tell 'it' to leave you alone. The random acts are 'its' way of placating you and trying to lure you into what could be a very volitale relationship.

Just my opinion.
Please keep us posted.
God Bless!

I find this encounter most interesting. I would love to hear the additional story. I myself have had a horrible experience with an Ouijia board (you can read it under my profile).

I want to hear more.

God Bless!

To all who responed,
I have not had any further experieces in the house. I have thought about playing a video camera near the area if this ever occurs again.

My dog had no reaction what so ever.

My husband just brushes it off.

The 'idiot box' is the television.

God Bless!

To all who commented,
Thank you for the kind words and support. As I said, I am having a hard time with this experieance. If you check my profile, I have had many encounters. It is amazing to me that some of them stay with you more than others.

This one will touch me to the day I die.

God Bless!
Date: 2011-09-20
I agree with you. I have had many experiences (a lot are shared on this site). It was wonderful to see her, but knowing she was at the hospital at the time I saw her it what is hard for me to wrap my head around.

God Bless!

Maybe it wasn't Ants in the bed, maybe he was refering to Aunts in the bed. Perhaps he had looked out for Aunt Rita living there alone and was concerned or worried seeing someone else inhabiting her ber bed and was confused she was not there.

God Bless!
What a great story!

I believe this is very likely; to have an experience around and exhibit of this nature. There were so many emotions and so mnay deaths, it would be a wonder to me if the exhibit WASN'T haunted.

I visited the Queen Mary-same type of thing.

All of the stored energy has to be released,

God Bless!

Okay...hmmm... Reading your story and the others comments, how would you know if this was or was not another person who controls their dreams and has OBE's? By definition of what you claim to do with your dreams and OBE's you may have invitited or at the least, tempted this to happen by a willing or unwilling invitation.

Just a thought.

God Bless!
I agree with you. The negative elements seem to be over shadowing anything else that may be going on in your home.

I have had experiences with both good and bad 'special' encounters (some of my stories are on this site). When you talk of your wife and you arguing and this making the 'entity' stronger, to me that speaks to somethjing that is not all that good or well wishing.

I also agree about having your home blessed again. This time, I would ask the priest to bless the basement area as well as the bed rooms, including the new room for the babdy.

Also, when placing the crusifixes in the home, you may also place open Bibles in the home; again especially in the bed rooms.

Try reading scripture out loud when you tell the 'thing (s) ' that you are not and will not be frightened in your own home. Tell it (them) to leave in the name of the Lord.

With your wife expecting, the hormones can be crazy for a woman at this time, but- these same hormones (I believe) can also make us more sensitive and susceptable to the areas around us. Your wife may very well be picking up on things she doesn't quite grasp or is ignoring because she is frightened to deal with this. Have a frank and candid conversation with her and let her know you two need to stick together to get through this, maintain your family and your home.

Please keep us posted,

God Bless!

I am curious, did you live near or around a grassy or wooded are in thi house?

God Bless!
Date: 2011-08-30
It may very well have been a shadow person, or the shadow of someone who used to be a person. They may have an attachment to the house or property. When you caught them and suprised them by glancing up the scream could have been this beings fear that you had noticed them and may try to react in a way to get them out of the home or off the property. Don't misunderstand, I would have been frightened also-beyond belief.

I know it does take a lot of energy to manifest in any form, from different experiences and research, that may be very well what you saw and the being is comfortable and does not want to be noticed or removed.

There are many things that will occur in our lives, some like this are vrtualy unexplainable to us.

Please keep us posted,
God Bless!
A poltergeist sounds logical as they like to move things around to cause havoc and disruption of routine. Have other members of your family or your boy friends family been experincing any strange occurances?

Thanks for sharing!
God Bless!
