South Africa
 
I was raised in a seaside town in the South Western Cape, South Africa. I no longer live there but still have relatives in the town.
I have worked in the legal field for most of my working life (not an attorney).
I love books, animals, beautiful gardens and flowers but cannot do much in the garden anymore as I have a back problem.
Paranormal activities, such as feeling, hearing and seeing ghosts or spirits are also part of my life on an irregular basis. I am not psychic (as far as I know) and certainly not a medium, although I have had dreams which in a matter of months, or a year or two, actually take place.
I love this site and have been reading people's experiences for about three to four years and have considered putting my experiences out there but have always lacked the gall to do so. Now that I have finally registered I think it will be more of an incentive.

Ghost Stories from Melda

His Name Is Vic on 2017-11-10

Where to start? The beginning of course is always the best place. That being so, unfortunately, you'll have to bear with me to find out how I eventually came to know that his name is Vic. And yes, Vic is a ghost. As I have never kept a journal, I can only give approximate dates regarding my experie...

The Man Bites Mommy's Pants on 2017-05-16

After all my supernatural childhood experiences, I really should have known better. We moved to a small city, Kimberley, in 1975 when my eldest child was seven weeks old. One of my husband's numerous business transfers! We bought a very old house, built in the late 1940s, which had been beaut...

Pop on 2017-05-09

Fergie's latest submission "House Sitting" spurred me on to recount these events. Throughout my life I have had very vivid dreams which on many occasions have actually become reality. I also tend to get flash images of people and events. When I see people, for whatever reason, they seem to appear...

Creepy Events At My Neighbour's House on 2017-04-26

This specific neighbour passed away during 2005/2006 at the age of 72. We had been neighbors for close on 20 years at the time of her passing. She and her family lived directly across the road from me. I used to call her Em, although that was not the name she was normally known by, simply my name fo...

My Son Who Refuses To Believe on 2017-04-07

Firstly, I realise there is a great possibility that this story will not be published. It basically relates to one rather uninteresting incident and my sceptical son. My second born, Kevin, who now lives in Missisauga, Canada, is a total unbeliever in virtually anything spiritual and this makes m...

Unusual Introduction To A Ghost on 2017-03-09

I have been spurred on to relate this experience by members of this site who have felt electric, static charges in the presence of the paranormal. I had always thought this to be highly unusual but taking their experiences into account, it seems not to be so unusual at all. I lived in a mining to...

A Beautiful Warm Experience on 2017-02-22

I would really appreciate opinions from readers. I don't know how to personally interpret this experience. All I know is that it was wonderful and left me teary-eyed. When I recently joined YGS my intention was to relate my paranormal experiences as they happened from childhood onward but I am mo...

Pull My Eyebrows Out In Terror (2) on 2017-02-15

This is the continuation of my first story. If you have not read my first story please do, if of course you feel inclined to do so. It might put things more into perspective. Fortunately, as explained in my previous post, by this time I had stopped pulling out my eyebrows but my fear levels remai...

Pulled Out Eyebrows In Terror on 2017-02-14

This is my first post to YGS. It has taken me a while to submit this story as I was not sure how to put it all together. I was very young when all my supernatural experiences began and it is difficult for me to write about occurrences which span a number of years of childhood horror and to keep it a...

LuciaJacinta - I don't think that Anastasia's haunting was residual as you say she interacted with you and others. Also, you mention that after the elms were cut down her activity increased.

I know you say that ghost hunts took place and psychics visited the house/library. Do you perhaps know whether anybody tried to help her cross over? As it seems that many of the inhabitants of the town were aware of her presence, I would have hoped that some kind person with the ability to do so would have tried to assist her.

It says quite a lot that you weren't frightened when you discovered that she was a ghost. She must indeed have been extremely benign and friendly. When I was a kid ghosts terrified the living daylights out of me 😨

Emma - What an amazing experience!

I've heard of a few experiences that people have had where they say they were carried out of harm's way by somebody or something. This just goes to show that you and your son were not meant to be harmed, which is why you also knew you had to cut down those trees.

Did your neighbour have anything to say about the tree that he insisted on keeping?

Regards, Melda
Jubeele - Quite possibly the woman wasn't intentionally showing herself to Nick but he had the ability to see her and his wife and mother didn't.

I think that mostly ghosts will stay close to people that they were close to during life or locations where they had lived and felt comfortable during life, much like we go home after a shopping spree. I'm not comparing death to a shopping spree but I think it would be a natural thing to do, unless the spirit of the person was fortunate enough to cross over immediately.

Very interesting and well written, as always 😊

Manafon - I agree with you. Probably just some nasty, spiteful individual who more than likely posts a load of rubbish on YGS and subsequently gets his/her comments closed.

I had to get the whole situation off my chest because it has been happening for a while and was starting to annoy me intensely. My rant is now over and life continues 😊

Regards, Melda
MackNorton - Thanks for your response. I absolutely agree with you that a healthy debate is what is needed.

The irritation which I am feeling here does not only concern me personally. Other people have been targeted as well and they don't deserve it. They haven't made any contentious or nasty comments at all.

My deduction? There is a "nasty" at work on the site and the sooner he/she disappears the better.

Regards, Melda
lady-glow - Thanks for your kind comment. I love your cool calculation, wittiness and sense of humour 😊

Manafon - I just have to love you! I mean that in a very good way. All you have to do is mention George Harrison, my favourite Beatle, to get my senses rolling forward and outward. I remember telling you once before that GH was my favourite Beatle and you told me that he was yours as well 😊

Personally, as far as the karma points are concerned, I can handle the negative ones when I deserve them. I have deserved some recently. What annoys me is that somebody is going around targeting perfectly innocent people who haven't passed any offensive remarks. This isn't only about me, it affects others as well.

Thanks for your welcome response.

Emmaline - As stated in my previous comment on Gh0sthunter's story, I would like to respond to you individually.

It isn't about my down votes in general, it's about the troll who goes around doing that. I deserved some of my down votes on Maggie's story but a number of others didn't deserve them on other story threads where they weren't being confrontational at all.

I'm not going to close my YGS account, perhaps just hibernate for a while. Then again - I've been known to change my mind in a flash and I'm a Virgo? Blast those star signs, mine doesn't suit my purposes😁

Good morning! (In SA it is now 07:43). I didn't expect all the responses I received and will reply to them individually on your own most recent accounts.

This is after all Gh0sthunter's story thread.

Tweed - You always come up with something worth thinking about. I think I know the poster you're referring to but don't know much about her. I didn't get the impression that she was nasty or aggressive. (Not sure whether we're talking about the same individual but we probably are - first four syllalbles identical)

When I say I don't know what I'm doing on YGS anymore, I seriously mean that. This forum is no longer what it used to be and what inspired me to join.

There honestly is somebody (or perhaps more than one person) going around down voting a few posters. I don't know the reason for this but it seems to be very selective.

I posted some bad comments recently and deserved to be down voted. I have now learnt that when it comes to matters of "principle", I need to take a back seat.

Thanks for your response, I appreciate it 😊

Rook - Thank you. What is irritating me is that a few people have been targeted recently and I have gone along removing negative votes where they don't belong. I am not only speaking for myself but for others as well.

If it gives the troll a good night's sleep then so be it.

Trolls abound. Please stop this. I don't mind receiving negative points when I say stupid things but now I'm seriously starting to wonder what I am doing on YGS. Ten minutes ago I had a plus karma point for my comment to Rook and now it has disappeared.

Believe me when I say I'm not hooked on the plus points but to remove them for a sinister motive? I have noticed this happening to a few posters recently. They are down voted on perfectly reasonable comments. Whoever you are - get the hell off of YGS - you don't belong 😠 Now give me another negative, TROLL!

Rook - I couldn't help myself, just had to reply to you! I actually jumped up from my chair and started singing bad moon rising and dancing! Oh wow - That song is going to stick in my mind for many days. One of my big time favourites when I was young 😁

Puff, I think Fergie's witblits got to you. You looked as though you were halfway to the moon and hanging onto something when I spotted you in the hot tub. Sheets I think. Then again, only two sheets and I believe there are three...

Val - You're spot on. I know I definitely deserved minus points on two of my remarks. If I could take back those comments, I would. Unfortunately I feel pretty strongly about that subject and allowed my heart to govern my intelligent thinking. Not a big deal anymore for me but I understand why I annoyed a few people.

Regards, Melda
Date: 2018-01-12
Fergie - You had me reeling with the witblits and I hadn't even had a shot yet, only smelled it. I see Puff in the hot tub swigging down shots of the stuff. Anybody else with a driver's license? Oh my word, I see a lady glowing in the distance, over and above her usual glow. Please don't let her drive 😁

Jubeele - I think I'll bring a surprise dish 😁 Koeksusters? Love them but they're not so easy to make. Perhaps Fergie can do them better than I do. Smoked snoek tart? Always a winner but it is so, so 1980s. These favourites need to be spiced up every now and then. Um... Maybe I can do that. Perhaps better than what it was at New Year?

T-Rex will have to come here to pick up a criminal to chow on. Since he's been gone, they have gained more momentum.

Rex-T - Thanks for your response. I know why I got minus points but so be it. If my opinion is trampled on, that's fine with me. I won't be so eager to offer it the next time round.

I think there are people who "patrol" the comments and decide to vote certain people down. I honestly don't know why.

Regards, Melda
Date: 2018-01-12
Jubeele - You were just voted down again and I removed the minus point. I replied a few minutes ago to tell you the same thing but probably didn't hit "publish", so am responding to you once again.
