Experiences Of Our South Padre Trip on 2016-06-09

I recently went on a trip to South Padre Island with my best friend, her fiancé, and my ex from 6 years. We had a lot of fun and we visited a lot of places that were reported to be haunted. I didn't see anything at any of them. My best friend's fiancé claimed he saw something at the Presidio la Bahi...

Trip To Bear Head Lake on 2016-05-18

The summer between junior year and senior year of high school, I got to take my best friend with me on a family vacation. I was really excited about it because she got to meet some of our family friends on the way up as we passed through my old home state, Iowa. I also got to take her to one of my f...

His Test on 2016-05-18

It is really hard for me to remember the exact time this experience took place. I believe it was during my junior year of high school because I was dating my cousin's friend who would end up being my fiancé a short time later. It was a terrible relationship for a lot of reasons that I don't need to ...

Brigid on 2016-05-18

I have mentioned Brigid in at least one other experience on here. I promised I would talk about her so here's everything I have about her. I am little worried because one of my experiences with her was through astral projection and I know that there's another site for that. I did see her with my own...

Aimless Drive on 2016-04-29

My friends and I made a plan to go out to Possum Kingdom Lake State Park recently. It's a state park that is two hours away. It was a fun drive out but the place wasn't all that great. In fact, it was fairly boring and buggy. Instead of trying to make it work there, we decided to go driving. We visi...

The Mineral Wells Hotel on 2016-04-25

My boyfriend recently broke up with me. I was having an extremely hard time with it. I loved him and I was willing to give him everything I had to offer as a person. He said he loved me too, and he lied. When it came down to it, he didn't care about me at all. He said he felt nothing. It was devasta...

Dance Room Girl on 2016-03-10

This story takes place a few years after I moved to Texas. My mom and I moved out of an apartment and got into a roommate situation with someone we had befriended there. I still wasn't transitioning from living in Iowa to living in Texas well, but the house was a lot less awful than the apartment ha...

A Dance Partner I Never Wanted on 2016-03-10

I moved from Iowa to Texas around the time that I turned fourteen. At first I was really excited about it. I wasn't going to go to the same school as all the people I went to middle school with. I was starting to feel exceptionally lonely at my old school and I was a bit of an outcast. Let's face it...

Willow Park on 2016-03-10

I have been digging through my past and I have insisted on submitting my memorable ghost experiences to this website. My intention is to have a record of the past stuff so that I can write about the future stuff with comfort and ease. Last year I tried to write down every single ghostly or just ...

The Girl, Abigail on 2016-03-10

I am on a mission to get all my big experiences on this website before I experience something else that I would like to post here. It's important to me for some reason. I would just like my history documented here as a record, I guess. I feel like it will help me when I relay things that are more cu...

Dancing Heads on 2016-03-07

Before I begin, I would like to share something that happened while I was typing this up. I use Word to type out my experiences so that I can double check the spelling and whatnot as I go and before I submit it. I was in the middle of typing out this story, in fact I had just gotten to a part in whi...

My Earliest Ghost Experiences on 2016-03-07

My very first post on this website was about my most recent paranormal experience at the time. I mentioned that I wanted to add more about my experiences, so I decided to break down the big experiences in my life and submit them to the website as well. Naturally, I would like to start with my ea...

Garbled Voice on 2016-02-29

I have had quite a few experiences in my life. Most of them are small. For example, I saw something last night. It looked like a figure in a long white dress which I spotted out of the corner of my eye. Things like that are normal for me. I only gave it an iota of my time because it wasn't something...

I would be really scared if that happened to me. I'm glad you checked around. At least the ghost didn't open the door? Maybe try that cleansing method Tweed offered and tell us how it goes?
Best of luck to you!
Her Miracles!
I know, right? I don't get it either. I didn't even realize I had a lot of bathroom stories until you mentioned it, but yeah, that seems to be the main locale of where I see them. Happily it's not the only one because I like my privacy in there. Lol!
It could be that it's just easier for me to pick up odd colors and shapes in places like public bathrooms. They tend to have very uniform patterns to everything. The lady I saw in this case was wearing something very colorful, while the tile on the walls was like this champagne-beige color and the stalls were like an old eggshell white.

I did see something at the beach, I think... But I kind of think the reason I didn't see things in other places was because I wasn't relaxed enough. I wanted to see something at The Alamo or the Presidio la Bahia but I didn't. There were a lot of people at the Alamo and I'm not so great with crowds. The rest of the trip, I always had someone close to me, including my ex from a few years back. We rekindled our friendship on the trip, which is spectacular, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't awkward and tense for a lot of the trip because of it. I guess it's kind of hard to spot a ghost if you're constantly worrying about the people around you. Maybe if I get to go back some day I could see one that isn't hanging out in the restroom, making things awkward for the both of us, lol.

Hey there MarvinScott,
This was really interesting to read. I love that your first conclusion to the scream was that someone woke up in a dark funeral parlor. I bet that would be a little scary if you weren't expecting it and grief wears people out, hardcore.

I have always been curious about what it would be like to work in a funeral home. There is a horrible part of me that hopes you have more experiences to share like this one so I can find out more about what it's like.

I loved reading this. I'm going to favorite you, just in case there's more to come.

Miracles51031 - I get especially upset when I mess up what I type because I am constantly writing and editing. It's an everyday thing, for myself mostly but I edit for a couple loved ones too. I laughed this morning when I realized I misspelled something on my correction too. I was like, "It's meant to be. Time for work". Lol Thank you for finding humor in it too. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Rock on with your editing!
What an interesting fellow! Spirit or not, this guy is my new favorite person.:D

My life is filled with typos. I'm sorry. I'm getting ready for work while I read and type on here. I mean to say that it does* sound like you have a clinging spirit. I don't know why I didn't proof-read before I posted. Rookie mistake and I sincerely apologize.
Date: 2016-06-26
Hey,
I won't tell you that you made a mistake by playing with that Ouija board. They make me extremely uncomfortable and I think you already got the notion that they aren't quite right. It's impressive that your parents have one from the '60s though. I bet it's cool-looking.

Any case, it doesn't sound like you might have a spirit clinging on to you. I mean, I can't know for sure, but it sounds like it. You said you talked to it, both to get an EVP when you were younger and when that old man just popped up in your driveway (assuming it was in fact your spirit buddy). He could have been a rather pleasant guy once upon a time, but right now, he might not be so great to always have around. Feeling like someone is watching you all the time is not fun and you deserve to have your space. Also, there's no telling what tired to drain your energy with that board. Those things open up a whole world of trouble.

You've talked to him before. Have you asked or told him to leave you alone? Have you told him that you can't help him? Normally, I wouldn't tell someone to just outright talk to the ghost because that acknowledgement can invite worse behavior, but you already talked to him. I think you need to be straight forward with this guy and tell him that you cannot help him and that you either need your space or you want him to go away. Be firm and set your boundaries because you have to be strong to make sure this clinging dude isn't going to just stick around.

It's a different story if you still want him hanging around though. I'm serious about setting up those boundaries and making sure he knows that some things are not okay. Honestly though, if he's actually looking for help and he wasn't just using that to bait you, he's spending a lot of time being strung along by his own desperation and that can't be good for him either.

Sweetsunshine1800 - Hey, thank you for reading my experience. I agree that I was blessed to have seen Brigid. She helped me, I'm sure of it. I don't know why she helped me. I've only seen her in Minnesota, with my mom's side of the family. Those are interesting things to think on though. Thank you:D
Date: 2016-06-24
Foxglove - Thank you so much. I have a bit to look up it seems. Appreciate it.
Date: 2016-06-20
Wow! That is an odd color for eyes. Did this thing ever acknowledge that you were there in some way? What angle were you seeing it from. My mind decided that you were laying on the floor near your father when I was reading the story, but I know you said that you laid on a mattress on your mother's side at the beginning of the story. I really just want to get a better mental image for this.

I am sorry to hear you had such a scary experience as a young child. It is always difficult to see something scary that young.
Date: 2016-06-20
I think it's interesting that this happened while you were in the process of transitioning into a new lifestyle. From what you said, it sounds like the ghost (s) have related to your own mother as a sort of mommy figure, but now that you're older, they decided to look to you.

I have had false-child spirits around me before though. I wouldn't open up to them too much, just in case. That is a lot of activity for a child ghost. ^.^ Just be safe, okay?

Hey!
I don't usually mind roadside rest areas or campground bathrooms other than I am extremely alert and weary of bugs or spiders. I am ridiculously afraid of insects, spiders, and other arthropods. I freeze up and get the shakes that last for hours after being too close to most of them. I've made myself feel better about butterflies, moths, ladybugs, and lightning bugs, but I've been scared of them for a long time too. I rather love how moths look though and ladybugs appeared in the middle of winter when I had a big epiphany back in 2010, so I refuse to allow myself to be upset by them now.
I'm rambling
I don't usually feel weird in places like that for any other reason. This place was crazy though. Everything there felt a little off. There was this moment when some fog drifted in from off the empty lake while I was looking at some perch at the beach though. That was the best moment there. I am just astounded by nature. I wish I didn't live in a city, despite my phobias.

Red, I would love to hear if anything odd has happened at the rest area you mentioned. That's just such a precise location. What do you feel when you're there? Just the shivers or is there more?
Date: 2016-06-19
Hello everyone! I'm sorry that I haven't checked this until now. I've been working like crazy. Thank you so much for reading my experience. This was a big one for me.

Spiritwaiting -
I agree that it was not okay for my cousin to test my friend. She didn't deserve that and her sensitivity affects her health enough that she shouldn't have to endure that. I was not privy to the idea that he was testing her and if he told me, I would have told him that it was a bad idea.

The image was very scary. I am sorry if it gave you nightmares. It was not fun to see and it was even more unpleasant to hear. That laugh haunts my nightmares far more than the animal-thing does.

Tweed -
My cousin and my exfiance were jerks in that moment, yeah. They're the same people from the Brigid experience, actually. I love my cousin to pieces but he has his moments of terrible behavior, but he's only human.

I am glad to hear that you think the park would go back to the way it was before. It was and probably still is a beautiful park. I think you're right that the people involved, as opposed to the place, were the catalyst behind the energy and the issue. My cousin and Josh scratched pentagrams and junk into park benches and the like in the area and my aunt suspects they drew the issue there or made it with their own energy. Either way, it was bad and they play with stuff that they shouldn't.

Bibliothecarius -
I like your screen name as well! It's so fun and likable!

My cousin and my ex-fiance were jerks (and worse names) to my friend. I am not happy about what they did and she knows that they did as well. She knows their true colors and she's learned from the experience in that she is learning how to deal with her sensitivity more than she allows herself to be subjected to vomitting every time she's around something bad. It's a slow process and I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have started to try to manage her energy if they weren't awful to her. I wish she didn't feel the need. I'm proud of her though.

:) I was a teenager and my only link to exploring my spiritual/new age side was through books and my aunt, who I only got to see every once and a while. I know better now. I'm not saying I know everything, but I know a little more now that I've pushed myself to learn more.

Thank you for your help. I like the way you structured the rules. The wording was really amusing. I enjoyed that a lot.

You stay safe as well.

Hey everyone! Thank you for reading my experience and thank you Rook for providing information about Brigid in such a timely and helpful manner. That was awesome of you.

Red,
I'm extremely blessed to have had visitations from her. I really believe she protected me. I don't know why she did that but it was something I was really touched by.
I actually don't know if I'm of Irish descent. I mean, I'm American. My Mom has told me that we're ScotsIrish on her father's side. She based her wedding around it. I've been told we have English, Norwegian, German, and a couple Native American ancestors as well. I wish I knew for sure, but I don't at the moment.
Are you Irish?:)

Hey everyone,
I'm sorry I haven't been on this page in a while.
You've all been really nice about trying to cheer my up in regards to the split with my ex and I thank you for that. It's still hard. Every time I think I've taken a decent step forward, something comes up in regards to my ex that takes me right back down. I found out that he left me for someone else and that he was nothing but a liar the entire relationship. I don't know how someone fakes love for another person as thoroughly as he did. There must be something seriously wrong with him.
I'm finally getting over being sad and angry all the time, at least at him, and I have a lot of steps to make.

My friends have been wonderful through it all. You're all right, they are the best.

Spiritwaiting - You should definitely see the hotel. It's gorgeous, night or day. We drove by it on a different day trip and it was just as awe-inspiring as it was at night.

Aku - I'm sorry that you're having issues figuring out if ghosts will communicate with you through dreams. I hear they can... And I've seen deceased family members in dreams. I'm not sure if they were communicating with me for real or not, but it felt real. I think you just need to ask yourself how the situation felt to you. Also, I hope Tweed was able to give you more help than that.

Hello Everyone!
Thank you to elfstone810 for finding the radio station! It's awesome that you found it! I will share that with the friends that were on that trip with me. My best friend's fiance really liked it. That DJ's voice is so interesting.

Loneybone - What did the woman's voice say through your amp?
Possum Kingdom is nice, small though... If you go, Breckenridge is close by and it's super cute.

RCRuskin - ^.^ I haven't re-read what I wrote, but I feel like I mentioned that I thought it could have been interference. I've been on long distance trips before though, longer ones than I was on for that trip. I've also gone on trips that were a big circle, like the last one. I know what the radio sounds like when we're moving in range of a different station or out of range of the station we're listening to. The fact that we were headed in a set direction when it happened and the radio didn't do anything else for a while made me think that it could be something more.
Of course it could be something else because there is no way for me to be able to go through every possible scenario in little car, driving through the countryside. I just know that it was an odd sentence with an interesting voice, it was a full sentence, and the fact that nothing else happened with the radio for at least an hour allowed me an opening to "It's possible".

It is possible it wasn't something otherworldly, but it's possible that it was. I thought it was interesting enough to share:D

Hello nonamejame
What an awful experience for you and the little ones around you. I hope he was bluffing and doesn't come back. If he does, I vote you fight him. Steel yourself to his appearance, tell him he's not allowed in your house, around your family, and make him leave by force of will alone. It sounds like he was trying to intimidate you and your little one, so show him that you ARE something to be feared.

Best of wishes and stay strong.

I'm sorry I haven't made any replies yet. I've been emotional and busy. I'm hear now though and I am going to reply to everyone.
I did notice that there was a general theme of compliments to my writing. It makes me blush just to type that out. I just wanted to thank everyone for being so nice. All I've ever wanted to be is a writer, so much so that I've had to grow into more ambitions and dreams. I work at it all the time, but sometimes I feel like it's not good enough. I know that writing things that actually happened to me is different from the fiction I write for my novels, but compliments are pretty uplifting. My life is chaos right now, so the fact that most of you put it out there that you liked how I wrote this out really warmed my heart. Thank you a million times over for that.

2nd1st - I do have really wonderful friends and I would love it if I could just let my ex slip away into the past. I would love to forget about him. Unfortunately he lives with my friends and he's my best friend's fiance's best friend. I know there are times that I am going to have to be around him. It was stupid of me to date him but I was ready to take a risk. I'm sure we can be civil around one another, especially for our mutual best friends' wedding. I'm still hurting right now, you're right.
I'm glad their wedding is a little over a year away. I'm hoping I won't be so emotionally raw by then. I wouldn't do anything to cast ANY dark clouds over my best friend's big day, but I would like to enjoy seeing her get married, and not trying to mask that I'm distraught because I thought I loved someone that felt nothing for me.
Sorry, that was ramble-y.

Tweed - The Baker Hotel is gorgeous. We recently went there during the day. No spirits made themselves known while we were driving by, but it was magnificent to see the building. It is so pretty. I think it's officially my favorite place in all of Texas.

AugustaM - I have really wonderful friends. They support me the best ways they know how and I don't know what I've done to deserve them.
I worry about this break up. I've been taking steps to make sure it doesn't end up like my last one. I've been applying for jobs all over the country because I want out of Texas. I never really wanted to live here and I was will to stay for my ex. I'm not willing to stay anymore so I'm trying to make some great big leap of faith into the unknown.
Did you keep up with your swing dancing? Is it something you still enjoy?
The Baker Hotel is gorgeous. I'm in love with the building. It is just so ornate and awe-inspiring.
Possum Kingdom State Park however was not as neat. I was just expecting more from it. It's a cute place to stop for a picnic and a hike on a road trip though. Plus they have hummingbird feeders at the station. When we went, there were four hummingbirds fluttering around them. They were super cute. I didn't see any real possums, but we were there around noon and possums are nocturnal.

Calamity - Hey! It's good to hear from you, again! How are you?
The break up has been a bit rocky. I miss my ex all the time and I have to constantly remind myself that he was never really in it for the long haul. I thought he was at the time because it seemed like he always wanted me around. There was a time when I even believed that he thought I was attractive. To be honest, I wasn't feeling the last bit at the end, for at least a month or two. I feel like I was giving everything I had and he was giving just enough to get by. I should have seen the break up coming but I was wearing some crazy rose-colored goggles. I try not to demonize him now, because he doesn't deserve that, but I'm also sifting through a lot of hurt and pain. I hate break ups... I'll get over it though.
I heard the Baker Hotel was haunted before I heard that it was beautiful. My hair dresser told me she was going on a ghost tour there the very first time she dyed my hair. Not long after that, I saw one of those ghost story re-enactment shows that had a story from a group of people that went there. I actually wasn't very impressed by it because I just didn't realize how incredible this building was. I knew what it was the moment I saw it though. It's really gorgeous. I really want to go inside it, or at least walk around the outside of it for more than a minute. If you ever get to go. I highly recommend it. It's so pretty.
Mineral Wells is nice too. I thought it was going to be a lot busier during the day (it's very, very quiet at night), but I really didn't see that much traffic or people when we went back during normal people hours. It's nice town. The historic district is phenomenal.

Koolruud - The Baker Hotel is a little spooky but there is definitely a draw to it. I want to go back. I want to see inside and I want to spend more time there. The building is amazing. It has a really rich history. The area around the hotel is really pretty (because it's all very old and a little run down). In my opinion, it was prettier at night than it was in the daylight, but I would think that as a night person.
I'm trying to let the break up go. It's just hard. I felt like I was unloved and he tried to nicely tell me that he didn't feel the same way, even after nine months of telling me he did. It's just hard. I'm making changes but Rome wasn't built in a day.
Hello intotheairwaves,
That experience must have been horrifying for you.

I have also had experiences with spirits or whatnot mimicking voices of loved ones and this is a complaint my best friend's household is currently experiencing. My experiences were always short lived. I've heard my name and the names of some of my pets. I've also heard people I know talking, just slightly too low for me to catch what they're saying, only to find out they're not around or they swear up and down that they hadn't said a word.
At my friends' house, the three people that live there have heard the voice of someone that lives there. It calls out to them or says stuff that they can't make out. It sounds like my best friend's fiance, and funny enough, the voice has done it to him as well.

Those instances obviously aren't as scary as yours though. They're inside buildings, happening to grown people. They also don't tend to repeat themselves over and over. Yours is unique in that it was outdoors and the voice was so incredibly insistent.

Mimicked voices are actually pretty common in folklore. Doppelgangers would obviously be able to do that. There are a lot of stories about faerie creatures luring children away with mimicked voices as well. There are other folklore things too, most of them have to do with luring a person away or trying to distract them.

It was smart of you to go back home. Whatever it was, I doubt you need to worry about it now. I can see how that memory would stick with you though.

Hello,
It sounds like you and your family had a rough year. I'm sorry to hear that and I hope it has gotten better since then.

First of all, I wanted to say that I could totally relate to what you said about your family dynamics when it comes to being sensitive. I have a lot of sensitive people in my family but I could directly relate to you and your brother. I grew up with my cousin like he was a brother. We're both sensitive. I have seen a lot of human and animal spirits but he has a lot more experience with scarier things. My cousin and I connect well and we like to discuss these sorts of things together but we usually have very different stories to tell. It made me pretty happy to see that you have that sort of relationship with someone too because I just haven't been able to relate to someone on that level in this sort of thing before.

As for Anna, I can see how she would have scared you at first. Her appearance sounded off-putting and it seemed like she was making a point to be close to you. Do you think that the man in the fedora has anything to do with her life or her death? I think it's interesting that they were hanging out in the same place and that she appeared so suddenly after he left. Have you told any of the psychics in your circle about him yet or asked them to try to deduce if there is some sort of connection?
