I come from a German family with a liberal catholic background. My interest in the paranormal was woken in my early teens by my older cousin.

Over the years I had a lot of paranormal experiences - mostly good ones, some unesay, but never really bad ones.

My interests in this field are ghosts, reincarnation and guiding spirits

Dead Child Or Elemental Spirit? on 2015-09-07

I can't see spirits, but I can feel their presence and communicate with them. Normally, I feel a weight on my shoulders and an increasing heat on my back whenever an entity is around. Not so the last time, and this is what happened. First of all, here is the background to the tragic events leadin...

Angel Or Mayan God? on 2011-08-29

The story I want to share with you took place in 2004. I was 30 years old then and working in quality control for a big hotel chain. I am male and have always been sensitive to spirits and a firm believer in the paranormal. My colleague and I were sent to this large hotel on the island of Cozumel...

I think that the ill-looking man and the voice on the tape recorder belong to the same spirit. The rest can be just random encounters, since you seem to be very open-minded about the paranormal.
One thing that really intrigues me, is the Ouija board. Have you ever spoken to your parents about it? I mean, you found it in their house, so they probably know where it came from. It could well be that some of the experiences you had there were somehow connected to that board.

I'm with Bibliothecarius on this one, suggestiong that there might be a sad background to the house you are living in. It might have been part of a workhouse, once.

Hello Tweed,

Great story. Although I'm more of a punk rocker, I can relate to these kind of parties.

And that ghost seemed to be a very happy one.

Seems like a shadow person to me. They are mostly harmless, but still evoke a lot of fear in humans.

And, why do you think that benevolent spirits are not the norm? There are a lot of them out there. They just don't seem to interact a lot with us.

Hello Caimor,

Yes, I would also say that you have the ghost of a small boy in your flat. It is really old, and was probably built during the Industrial Revolution to house workers of some factory.
This little boy seems to be a playful trouble in trousers, but not a bad spirit. I, personally, would accept the fact that he's there and not tell him to go away.

BTW. We all dream, many people just can't remember their dreams when waking up.

Hello slenapayne,

Your reaction was quite a normal one, considering this was the first time you saw something supernatural.
But no need to worry. This boy doesn't want to cause any harm.

Dimensional slip? The first thing that came to my mind was a residual haunting. But dimensional slip is another good explanation - even a better one than a residual.
Hello EasyC,

This is very scary. Demons can appear in any form and shape they want, in your case as an old man wearing a suit and black black top hat (which seems to be quite common for evil entities). He probably got inside you that night when he ceremonially "stabbed" you. I only wonder why he's stayed silent for all these years. You are obviously in great danger. I would contact a priest. Not any priest, but a priest you have great confidance in.

And as far as your mother goes: she probably invited the demon into our world when she was messing with that ouija board. It could very well be the same demon that attacked her brother.

Hello britclem1234,

You did really well on doing some research on the house. And hats off to you for communicating with that spirit, which seemed to be a nice and caring one.
Hello gfoutch17,

Remember when, commenting on your previous installment, I doubted the presence of a demon? Well, you've certainly convinced me now. I only wonder why that thing prefers to lurk in the medical records department instead roaming around freely? Or is it that he is happy with tormenting the souls over there and feeding off their energy?

Hello Vaani123,

How long ago was it, that your family kicked those people out?
It could be that they left a curse on the house and on your family as a little parting gift, and, since these things occur more frecuently now, this could be the beginning of an infestation.
What really worries me is the black hand. Seems to be something like a "Devil's Claw" to me. Some remote acuaintances of mine had one of those claws appear on a wall in their house after they started messing about with entities they shouldn't have had. They got rid of it in the end, though, with holy water, a crucifix and some very strong prayers.

Really nice story and very well written. It must have been your Grandmother comforting you. Such a nice gesture.

Hello Fariya,

I didn't mean to say that Dryads are evil creatures, which they aren't. They only don't really like humans.
And Dryads can be found in any tree, bush, etc., not only deep inside the forest, although they are more common there, of course.

Hello Mimi81,

A doppelganger as some sort of a prankster? 😁 Sounds nice.
But still many people consider them a bad omen, but, then again, probably not always.
Date: 2015-10-10
Yes, I would also say that what you saw was an elemental. These are non-human nature spirits of very different character. Some are very lovely and playful, other are quite mean and nasty.
I, personally, think that you saw a dryad, a tree nymph, who was living in that bush. They are normally not very keen on human beings, considering the fact that we chop down "their" trees and cut down "their" bushes. But I don't think that particular dryad wanted to cause you any real harm. It just wanted to scare you and chase you off.

I would discard the doppelganger theory. As far as I know, Doppelganger are omens of very bad luck, including the death of the real person. But since that house brought you and your family good luck, I don't believe that what you saw was a doppelganger.
I would rather go with aussiedaz' string theory, especially because nothing else had happened in your house before or after (except for, maybe, a resident guardian spirit or some lucky charm protecting the house and the people living there)
First of all, your English is really good, and your story is not too long (there are longer ones on this site) 😉.
Now, this spirit is definately a real one, not just residual. He probably hasn't realized that he is dead, because he shows himself so frecuently to a lot of people.
What he needs is somebody to help him to the other side.
First of all: Ouija Boards are very dangerous things that shouldn't be messed about with, like just using it to contact a dead relative. They should only be used by experienced mediums or ghost hunters, and even then only with a lot of precautions taken, like rosaries, a bible and holy water in the immediate vicinity.
In your special case, I think that there was some entity lurking about, not wanting to be noticed and just wainting for the right moment to strike. That happened when you put your finger back on the planchette, and the spirit destroyed the mirror with it. I guess it is still there, teasing you. That might stop soon, or it might get worse.
One question: how long ago was it, when you used the Ouija Board?

What a scary story. I just hope that "bad old soul" never bothered you, again.
Most of the hauntings are probably residual, like the one of the girl in the play room, the giggleing children and the ghost following you down the corridor.
But there seems to be one mean spirit in the medical records department, although I doubt it being a demon trapping spirits in there.
