The Dock, Be Water on 2015-01-12

"You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend." - Bruce Lee I found this q...

Car Troubles on 2014-10-23

I just remembered this incident. Those who has read "Here When I'm Needed" is familiar with my late ex Derek. This is another one his little happenings. Derek passed away on a very dark winding road. The road has 2 lanes and is surrounded by trees. During the day it's very peaceful to drive down, bu...

Random Noises on 2014-09-24

Lately there has been small things happening at home and at work. In my story "Tantalize Me" I mention my dear friend who is no longer with us. I have a feeling it's him. He passed away over a year ago and up until recently I haven't had the chance to see him yet. I often see my passed loved ones af...

Wake Up, They Are Waiting on 2014-07-22

This encounter belongs to my step aunt, and happened in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City about 10 years ago. It may be a bit long so please bear with me. My step mother comes from a family of teachers, literally all her siblings that worked were teachers at some point when they resided in Vietnam, somewher...

Tantalize Me on 2014-07-22

For those who have read my stories "Here When Needed" knows I had a boyfriend who passed in 2008. During those times it was extremely difficult for me to cope and I was basically a wreck for a year. In that year I went out a lot, met lots of people I can't remember now, and drank a lot. It is also d...

Small Body, Big Soul on 2014-07-16

This is a short story and definitely not scary, but I wanted to share it. I've always been a pet person and has had all sorts of pets growing up from bunnies, cats, dogs, reptiles and rodents. This story is about my bearded dragon. She was my first beardie and I loved her lots. Some people may b...

Something, Someone Pt. 2 on 2014-04-23

As I was reading another member's story about weird phone call, I remembered another thing that used to happen in this house. As mentioned in Pt.1, when I lived in this particular house I was a somewhat troubled teenager, but not to the extreme. I remember I used to always get prank calls during...

Something, Someone Pt,1 on 2014-04-22

This happened when I was at the age of 15. I do not live in this house any more. My room was in the basement with a walk-in closet that attached to the laundry room, so there was two entries to it. During this time of my life, I was like most typical teenagers, just learning about boys, dealing with...

Sad Hotel Spirit on 2014-04-21

This story took place in 2011, in a hotel room in Mui Ne, Vietnam. My then fiance and I, plus 7 others, went on a 3 days trip from central Vietnam all the way North until we reached Nha Trang. This trip was for our wedding photoshoot, as we wanted all real scenery. My cousin (who owns the bridle...

I've Seen Him And You're Not Alone on 2013-09-03

Today is September 3rd, a dear friend of mine passed away on August 16. He was a very close friend of mine and Derek's. He was also my god-sister's husband and the father of my god-kids. He was 31 years old. Let's call him Sunny. Sunny had this amazing smile that was so contagious (hence "sunny"...

Infamous Spirit Turn Table on 2013-08-28

I occasionally go back to my home country for visits. During one of the visits, my family and I traveled from central Vietnam to North. There are these wooden tables that are all over Vietnam, I saw 3 of them during this trip. These tables all look the same. I saw one in a temple, one at the bottom ...

Who And Why Are You Shaking Me? on 2013-08-28

As mentioned in my stories "Here When Needed", I had a boyfriend pass away in 2008. Six months before he passed away, he took a trip to Vietnam (his and my home country) for the first time in his life. He got to meet his aunts and uncles, as well as many cousins. His auntie (his mom's younger sis) d...

Uncle's Hand on 2013-08-28

My mother's brother had always been the "trouble maker" of their family. Growing up as the youngest son in the family, he was always the rebellious one. The first time I met him was during my mom's funeral, and he was escorted by two officers. During that time he was serving some time in prison and ...

Unconditional Motherly Love on 2013-06-05

My mom passed away when I was 8 years old. We migrated from Vietnam to Canada in 1993, and she passed in 1995. She was only 43. She battled cancer for a long 3 months, and finally passed on Dec. 3. She was a carefree person. She grew up in an averaged income family with her mother, father, and 4...

Here When I'm Needed 3 on 2013-03-27

This is my 3rd story about my late boyfriend who passed in 2009. For those readers who have not read the 1st and 2nd story, please do before continuing on. Ever since Derek passed away I've "dreamt" of him many many times. I chose to put "dreamt" in quotations because I now strongly believe that ...

Here When I'm Needed 2 on 2013-02-06

It's been awhile since my first story about my late ex bf. I said there's more to him and here it is. So as you know, he passed away in July, 2008. We had been together 3.5 years. For our 2nd anniversary, he took me to the CN Tower and we had dinner in the revolving restaurant. It was wonderful. H...

Here When I'm Needed on 2012-08-13

I've been reading stories on this site for a few months and finally decided to share my story. It's not scary but more comforting, well, for me anyways. It is still hard to talk about it. It happened in the summer of 2008. I had just turned 21 and my boyfriend at that time just turned 22. Our bir...

Miracles- I am a July baby too 😁 And I sense the other cry babies 😜
I love your story! Can someone say Hangman,. 😜 Sorry, had to. Thank goodness you did not know much about spirits then. Your mom must know you have the gift of seeing, do you think she does too? Anyways, thanks for the fun read.

Ah...this answers my own question about whether it was possible to get visits from celebs 😊 Great story Miracles... The celebrities you think would be cool to know are the similar to me too! Are you a July baby by any chance? Hehe I trust big blue must really be getting quite big, almost 4? If my spider senses work at all... Is big blue going to be a big brother soon? 🤔

I also agree with the medium that you should try meditation. Meditation open your chakras which allow you to open your third eye and other senses. But like everything in life there has to be a balance. With good things come bad as well. Opening your 3rd eye and enhancing your other senses will make you vulnerable to all sorts of entities. So be sure to learn how to protect yourself also as you meditate. Best of luck to you. Stay safe. God bless.

Jeepers creepers! That was a good one, thanks for sharing. My guess on this is she drowned around there and is not very content with where she is. I say that because she made you all feel very fearful, but that could also just simply because she appeared in a very scary form. Also, since you all heard her and saw her only outside of the cabin, my guess is she died outside somewhere... Maybe she was a murder victim. Through reading stories here and to my own belief, spirits show themselves based on how they feel. Example, if they are at peace, they will look bright, and feel warm and friendly. However, if they died tragically and their soul has not rested, they will show themselves in a not-so nice form, and cast a uneasy energy around them. I wonder if you tried googling that area anything would come up... Let us know if it does please! 😆

Miracles! Thank you for the nice warm welcome back. I have been busy with a recent move to another city and adjusting to the new surroundings. Plenty of trees and water, I can't complain 😊. I too have had you guys on my mind, hope all is well with you. Btw, how is Mr. Big Blue?
Loved the details and writing style! Though I am younger than you but I like to think I havean old soul and can appreciate your childhood... Minus anything scary though. Thanks for sharing, added to favourites! 😆

Gstories - I do believe spirits can use technology to communicate with us. That is because I believe when we pass away, we just shift to another dimension and run on a different frequency (if you will). If you've never heard about this before I can understand it may sound a bit nutty. Maybe you have a spirit in your home that needs help crossing over. Perhaps just giving a simple prayer to help it move on. Now I get you may not be religious, which is fine, you don't need to pray to a specific God. You can even just say out loud "hey it's okay, go to where you're suppose to go". I have read many spirits do not know where to go after they pass and they become earth-bound. (yes, I clearly believe in afterlife). I have read especially children become afraid because sometime they don't even know they are dead. I guess if you're not frightened by it, then give it a try;)

I agree with BBJ... First thing that sprang into my head was POLTERGEIST! And most people who manifests them are not even aware they are the cause of it. Like BBJ said, hopefully your son and wife can stay away from that. It usually just stays in that house hold so if they stay clear of your mother's house they should be alight, but who knows really.
Nice job there friend! Very touching and glad you were able to hopefully help her soul.
lol why my fellow ysg members are quite the investigators... Good finds guys. We'll have to wait to hear from Honshu...

Bittersweet - I'm so glad you came back to ysg. We'll keep in touch through email my dear friend ❤

So beautiful. I'm happy for the both of you that you got to see something cool and he got his reassurance. God bless.
wow! That is terrifying. That really fascinates me. I wonder what these things are... Shapeshifters perhaps? Keep a strong faith my friend, no matter what it is. Whether you believe in Jesus, Buddha, Shiva, whatever... Even Goodness itself. Just believe you're protected. Imagine an invisible light surrounding you at all times. Sometimes when I feel uneasy at night before bed I visualize this globe of light around me and I feel better. Hope it helps.
Great story! Thanks for sharing. I agree with Faith1986 that you are indeed brave. Maybe next time you hear this, send the little girl a prayer and tell her to move on. Sometimes spirits just need a helping hand. Good luck!

ooh favs! I loved this story. Very well told and very creepy. I felt as if I was there!
Neat story and can't wait to see the pictures. I have to admit I cringed when you said "...while my wife is a plain housekeeper" lol I'm sure you didn't mean any offense, still made me cringe. 🤔
Date: 2015-04-07
I thought I had commented on this story, guess not. I did read it a while back. Hope everything is going well Curiosity... Keep us posted! It must be something very important and I can't wait until you settle it. Best wishes.

Rebel - I have to disagree with you on the 3 am thing. All around the world the time zones are different so that wouldn't make much sense. I think Hollywood started that whole idea.
