I have had paranormal experiences my whole life and seem to be like a giant flipping ghost magnet wherever I go, as is my older son who is right now 19 years old. I like hunting, shooting, fishing, playing with my dog, spending time with my family, and playing cards against humanity!:D

Not So Ordinary Orange Orb on 2015-12-29

I know many of you are skeptical of orbs and their connection to the spirit world, I am too; however, this is an event which I experienced with my brother-in-law I believe you will find compelling. This took place on 1 November 2002. My father-in-law had passed away around the first of August of ...

Brilliant narration Rook! Thank you so much for sharing. It is a testament to your devotion how you maintain such detailed journals from which to later reflect and see what other lessons you may pull from your experiences.

Just a general question to all on this thread, does a monkey or a child have 6 toes or was this a hemingway child ghost?๐Ÿ˜†

Seriously, I'm very curious about these footprints, was there every any sort of idea as to what could have made them that was not of the paranormal nature?

I am curious, the figure you saw, how tall would you estimate it to be? I ask as I have had experiences with the 'Hat Man' mentioned by Helena, but in many of my experiences, when he's about, so too are his minions, these wee little shadowers which range from 2-4 feet in height and can move extremely fast when they choose to. I did not always see the little guys with the big fellow with the hat, nor did I only see the little guys only when the big fellow was about, and actually, the bit about the crouching and such, that Mac questioned, brought me instantly back to many previous encounters of the little guys.

Also, SDS mentioned there was likely no significance to the 0300 hours; however for me 0300 is almost always the precise moment when some sort of strangeness shakes me from sleep, and I mean 0300, not 0259 or 0301, which has often baffled me as to what the significance may be, so your reference coupled with SDS's comment just add to my curiosity!

I would be curious too, to know what you meant by you have never been the same, is that because you have had to confront the paranormal? Or do you believe there was some sort of physical consequence to your encounter?

Great story, thank you for sharing.

Heya guys, sorry for not responding sooner, I've just been so bloody busy with life!

I think all of you mentioned whether I discussed this with my brother-in-law, and indeed I did! He is really frightened by anything he doesn't understand; however at the time this occurred, he was reading quite a lot of material regarding after life, near death experiences, etc., which eventually turned to astral projection. According to him, he had been attempting astral projection but he was never convinced until this event occurred. After this experience though, he become uneasy with the whole concept and has never attempted since, at least that he's willing to admit.

For me, I just thought it was really cool from the standpoint everyone's stories, time lines, and experiences meshed perfectly making it extremely difficult for me, or my missus, to dispute the paranormal.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed the story. I promise I will publish more, it's just so bloody difficult to make the time!

Heya Loneybone,

Cool pic! Glad you were able to resurrect it! To me, the photo almost has a water colour type quality to it, or perhaps some sort of drawing, so I wonder, if in the hype of the concert, you caught part of a poster or sign which may have been there or someone was holding up? It's so difficult to say. The other thought I had is at concerts there are many types of specialty lighting too, so the lighting could distort photos and such--not saying you didn't photograph some sort of figure with a skull, just that it affects the quality of the photo and makes it harder to discern what we are actually seeing in the photo.

Personally, in my opinion, I think you photographed some sort of graphic representation of a reaperish figure. Could be a sign, poster, tee shirt, who knows. None the less, very cool pic and story!


I'm with RCRuskin on this, why do you believe your other stories to be "just hallucinations", what differentiates these experiences from those you believe to be hallucinations?

Thank you for sharing! I'm a wee bit uncertain of what your expectations are though, whether you are content to carry on along with the spirits or if you are looking to curtail the activity. If the latter is the case, then I believe a simple cleansing would be in order, please see Rookdygin's page for a simple yet extremely effective cleansing:

Hope this post helps, and best of luck patching things up with hubby!

I truly hope everything works out for you and will continue sending positive thoughts your way! ๐Ÿ˜

Brilliant story Mystic! Would love to hear more of your Great Grandmother's tales of wisdom, hopefully you are able to post them!

Top range story Linzell! Thank you for sharing!

Just a thought which struck my wee mind, when you spoke of the spirit appearing to be Caribbean and one of the wee spirits having a skull-like face, I immediately thought of voodoo. I wonder if one of the former residents may have dabbled a bit in the voodoo and perhaps one of their ceremonies has drawn something in?

Again, thanks for sharing!

Ryan, do you frequently have experiences? Did you have experiences prior to the passing of your cousin Becky? I ask because sometimes, in grief, you unknowingly change your own frequency and are better equipped to pick up on these things. I think it is a part of the grieving process as it allows the recently passed a better opportunity to make us aware of their well being, their presence, or perhaps some unfinished business, etc.

I am sorry for your loss and hope this post finds you doing well mate.

Just Another Person,

I agree with all that has been stated, but would reiterate what Randy M says about telling it to leave you alone, stop touching you, etc., what I would reiterate is you have to do it with authority and confidence. If you make a half-hearted attempt, I doubt it will be of much help. Feel free to pray, grip a lucky item, have a friend with you, whatever helps you to be more confident as well, and as Randy M stated be very specific about the behaviour you wish to stop, or you can try and command it to leave as well.

You may want to consider doing this while performing a cleansing, something easy like I've seen Rookdygin post many times, essentially opening all of the blinds or curtains to let as much natural light in as possible in every room of the house. If you follow the link to Rook's page, you will find the cleansing there.

If none of this works, you are very likely going to have to seek help. I don't know how open your parents are to this sort of thing, hopefully you can approach them with it and get some help, otherwise you may want to seek counsel of a priest or the like and have them bless the house.

I wish you luck and will be sending positive energy your way!

I will read your update before posting my thoughts, but I do have to point out one little coincidence, every time you end up in Traverse City, you traverse to a new home! ๐Ÿ˜œ Lol! I couldn't resist...

Hello Mannerizms,

Like you, I am a pagan and can communicate with the other world, that's why I'm a wee bit troubled by how you phrased something in your original post. You said "I am a little nervous my daughter can see my grandmother...", and my first thought was why would you be nervous your child is speaking to your grandmother? Are you not able to sense whether or not it is your grandmother? If so, then perhaps a quick chat with her should be in order to determine if this is the case. My fear is though she is not speaking to your grandmother and that is why you are nervous, you don't sense your grandmother and therefore you are assuming it is her, this could be dangerous.

It is not my intention to frighten you or add to your anxiety, it's just with the wee ones I think it best to have a better feel for whom they may be communicating with.

I will be sending positive thoughts your way!

Remainunbroken you do not mention if your mom and/or grandmother were still alive at the time of your first experience and my first thought when reading your account was whether or not this may have been one of them? The fact that the spirit had no face is not completely unusual as it could simply be that the spirit did not have the energy to fully manifest; however it could also be a not so well intentioned spirit trying to mask their own identity and present to you in a manner in which you would identify with, to put you off-guard and possibly open to some sort of attachment. Have you had any sign of this spirit possibly being malevolent at all?

Jane, was this the only time your uncle had an experience such as this? I would be curious too if other people had experiences with the same cemetery? I agree with Loneybone though, I don't think this was a well intentioned spirit, and it seems you actually saw the spirit while your sister did not. I'm not quite clear though, if the rider you saw who was on the motorcycle when it actually crashed, looked just like your uncle? It would be helpful to know that.

Thank you~~Antu
Dee-J, I hope that was a spirit and not a run-of-the-mill creeper!

Wow! I'm not quite sure what to think of your mom C2C, but she sounds like a very controlling and not very nice person. I can't imagine why she felt it necessary to take your pets to what she most certainly knew was a death sentence at the pound, regardless of what she may have told you, I'm so sorry you had to go through that as a child.

As for your ghosty cats, we experience the same sort of thing in our home, regardless of where home is at that particular time. My wife is an unabashed crazy cat lady and I'm no better! We love our kitties and always have 4 or 5 for pets. I just think we form such strong bonds with our pets that we become attached to each other, and cats have long been believed to be spiritual creatures too. There is truly just something magical about a cat, the twinkle in the eye, the independent streak, the feel of them rubbing on your leg, the soothing nature of their purr as they snuggle, oh I digress. Anyway, we have one of our old cats which actually manifests in full form and the whole family frequently sees her and lately, our most recent loss seems to have found her way back to us. Again, I guess I am just a complete animal fanatic, but it is just so comforting to know they are still watching out for us and appear to be happy in doing so!

Thank you for your post!

You know, I have heard stories of pets being tormented by malevolent spirits, but I am just so joyed to think of a spirit longing for the companionship of a pet!

I presume your home must be an older home, hopefully it will be blessed with a kind spirit to help you and your family look over the place! Please keep us posted on your findings, I am quite curious to hear if you are able to identify the spirit!

Happy New Year!~~Antu
No worries Miracles, I truly hope that was some sort mix-up of thoughts on loneybone's part and I suspect that is the case.

At any rate, Red, this was a touching story, and I can only imagine the effect the events of that day had on you and your family with your husband being a public servant, even if only on a part time or volunteer basis. I was a reserve peace officer for a time, and even here across the country in Cali, that day had a significant impact on me and to this day, the thought of it brings up a bevvy of emotions which I have difficulty in controlling. I doubt I will ever be able to visit the site, as I do have some empathic tendencies and I just think being there would be completely overwhelming for me. You must have the strength of a Grizzly Bear to be able to walk through that area Red.
