Dad's Birthday Visit by Fergie

At my age, unless I have something important to get up for, I rarely know what day it is, let alone the date. I need a reminder, either on my phone or on my PC to let me know if it is someone's birthday or if I have an important "date" to keep. In other words, I no longer have a memory - only a "for...

Quite Literally A Puzzle by lanapoll96

This happened a few years back, during the Summer holidays of school. I would have been around 14-15 years old, and my brother, James, a year older than me. You should know that our dad passed away in 2005 from lung cancer, and we believe he's still with us since most of our family have seen him and...

My Grandmother's Hands by bhambrick

The year was mid 2009 and I received a phone call from my grandmother, and she told me that she was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer and that she was given 18 months to live. This was her second time having it. She tried the chemotherapy and it just made her so sick. She was 81 years old. She s...

Please Come Get Me, I'm Cold by xonicolleox

This actually isn't a personal experience, but it happened to my aunt Liz, uncle Murray and my father. When my grandfather had passed away a while back my aunt was experiencing some odd things happening, but the worst was definitely unbelievable. The night of my grandfather's burial, when Liz we...

Remembering Jimmy by melpat01

My father, an advertising man, fondly nicknamed Jimmy passed away from liver cancer in August 2000. He was such a prankster, a very jovial person, loved by many.

My Nana's Birthday Visit? by Mystery_Girl

First of all I would like to introduce a few details about my family members in this event just so there's no/less confusion. The main member of this story is my nana Violet (also my mum's nan). Unfortunately she lived in a care home for the last few years of her life due to the unfortunate disease ...

Death Couldn't Part Us by Zenith_90

I met Samar 5 years ago. We connected instantly and our chemistry was magical. It was hardly any time before we fell madly in love with each other. We fitted like jigsaw puzzles, completing each other's lives. It was perfect. We got engaged 6 months back and were supposed to get married in December....

Grandpa's Way Of Comfort by spiritwaiting

A few years after my grandfather passed, I was in mourning. He and I had a very special relationship. We were very much the father and daughter type. His passing, as I've posted in another story "Grandpa Saying Goodbye" under Taurus83, was sudden. He died from bacteria throughout his body. Altho...

Call From The Other Side...? by EerieSpector

My uncle passed away in the late summer of 2009 due to lung cancer. We were very close, and when I heard the news he had died I was devastated.

Was It Really Him? by hmb2002

Hey guys I've got a sad one now! Get your tissues ready! Well, my mom purchased a flower shop about a year ago. It's a pretty big building. It has a basement, main floor, a loft, and an attic. This particular story takes place in the attic. The building we are in is over 209 years old. Around 60 ...

Scent Of You by RoMaNzQ

It has been four years since my ex (Robz) passed away. Our relationship began through sheer luck when neither of us were actually looking. The chemistry was undeniable and we were drawn to each other like magnetic poles. It was almost as if the Heavens had opened up and welcomed us on a journey o...

The Old Lady At The Gate by Indie101

Just a quick sum up - this story has been told to me on a few occasions by my grandmother and it's her story. This does mean I know the story well and won't miss out on anything. As a young girl my grandmother lived about a mile away from her school in a small town in East Anglia with her grandmo...

A Message From My Granddad by CheekyLizzy

Sorry for the long-time-no-see period. I have had a hectic few months recently, and haven't really had time to share more of my stories. This is because about a month ago my granddad passed away, and I'm writing this about him today. Not in a disrespectful way, but lately something strange and c...

Derek Williams by MonicaFreeman

I recently lost my best friend and confidant, Derek "Durty" Williams, in a tragic motorcycle accident in the early morning hours of August 10, 2013. Many days I've spent blaming myself for his death because he had asked me to come see him the night of his accident but I had blown him off because I d...

I Saw My Mom, I Heard Her Sing by Charmsdes

My mom died quite suddenly. She was ailing for a few weeks and as suddenly as her terminal disease came on, she was gone. Another death to add to the list of deaths in that house. I knew she fought death and she was not ready to die when she did so I expected some paranormal activity from her. I...

Family Ghosts And Other Odd Occurences by Burrrandii

Myself and my family have had some odd experiences over the course of my life and I thought it would be interesting to share them with you guys.

Told Ya by Pierman1964

If you see the title of my story, it is what my ex-wife's deceased grandfather told her after I proposed to her while we were still dating. It was Nov. 1999 and we were in love (or so we thought) and we started talking about getting engaged. I went to search for the ring at several places, inclu...

The Grandad by Kim94

Eight years ago on the 24th of December, close to midnight, my grandad Rolf died of a heart attack... At least that's what I think it was. He died so suddenly and when me and my mom got the text saying that he was in the hospital and just took his last breath, we were so shocked we couldn't sleep al...

Watching Over Me by AbbieB10

My name is Abbie, I am 14 years old and I can see my great nan. She died in my room, which is what my parents told me. The first time I saw her I was laying in my bed in the dark. She was standing right next to my bed, watching over me. I had never seen her before so it startled me. I was really...

Who Was It? Grandpa...? by LoveParanormal

I hope many of you must have read my previous post "Was She Her Sister?" which was about one of my friends. This is my own experience. This incident took place in about mid-November 2006 when I was in my 5th class. My maternal grandfather had expired due to lung cancer and we had gone to visit th...

My Granparents by LH

My experience is very short, but very real. I should say that I was very close to my dad's parents. I spent a lot of time with them growing up. They lived close by, and I'd spend after school time at their house. My grandad and I were close, I loved spending time with him. After high school, ...

Papa And My Family by abelievermetalfan

I want to start this off with my own background. I am not a religious person, most would consider me to be an Agnostic, but I more personally identify myself with the overall concept of Deism. I am really the only member of my family with this set of beliefs, which has alienated me in a way. Because...

Grandpa's Funeral Spirit by Acacia

This is my first time to actually write this out however I have told what happened at my Grandpa's funeral to other family members. It's not spectacular or even scary, but it is genuine.

I lost my mom very suddenly to a massive heart attack in August of 2009.

Before I Was Born: My First Paranormal Experience by Santos

You could say that my very first paranormal experience was when while I was still a baby... Inside my mother's womb. Mom and Dad had been married for only a year when my Mom's father -- the grandfather I never got to know -- had a heart attack and died on the spot. Since Mom was the eldest c...

Night Terrors Ended By Grand Dad's Passing by Hinkamus

I write this with a curiosity as to what others reactions will be, for I have read the comments and so many are quite harsh - don't worry I won't be offended. However, I have always wondered if more people are of the opinion that night terror are not just dreams gone wrong. When I was about nine ...

Blackberry Vinegar And The Bread Knife by magicmerlot

This is something that happened to me last week (12th September) and far from being frightened I had a little smile on my face the whole time. When I was a little boy, my grandma (we always called her mama) used to make an old wive's remedy for colds and fever called blackberry vinegar. We had th...

Seeing My Little Sisters Before They Were Born by AJ1KENOBI

This happened when I was about 9 on my ancestral family property in the central north east Kimberly desert region. I am the eldest of 4 siblings. Before I begin, I need to explain that I am Indigenous Australian. My Grandparents were taking the family to show us our Peoples' traditional land. It...

My Great-aunt's Visits by Bagpuss33

In 1997, my great-aunt got very ill. I was 17 at the time. She lived a mere 300 hundred meters away through my local housing estate with my gran and grandad.

Was This My Grandfather? by Tamzinite

I am new to posting on this site but I have read quite a few as I have always been interested in the paranormal. I thought I would post one of my own. I am going to start by explaining I have had a few strange experiences, but only recently have I thought maybe they are all linked. This one I am...

Uncle's Hand by notjustme

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 ...

A Frightening Glimpse Into The Future - I Need Advice by triden07

I have noticed that as my stress levels rise, the spirits around me make their presence clearer. This past weekend, 23 to 25 August 2013, I had more confirmation of this. A friend of mine, J, had been visiting for the weekend. I love having him there, he used to run ghost hunting tours in Pilgrim...

The Smoker by musqua_35

Since I was five, I've seen this figure in the shadows when I try to sleep. It first appeared in November. It's non-distinguishable but for one trait. It's a man about six feet tall having a single cigarette. His presence is only outlined by the glowing ember at the end, but his face is still shroud...

It was July 2012 and my fiancé and I were counting down the hours until our trip to Mauritius.

I checked in on ...

The Lady That Faded Into The Darkness by jennyjenn7932

I have had a few experiences that I would like to share. The first experience I had with a spirit, or ghost, I was about 11 years old. This was around the time that an aunt of mine passed away in a car accident. I will get to that part in a bit. Well, I was laying in my bed one night. I seen thi...

Is It My Friend Or Someone Else? by Jennilou87

This is my first experience I have written about, and I haven't really told many people about it either. So here goes. Unfortunately, this story starts with a sad beginning. One of my closest friends died in April this year. I can't tell you how, as I don't want to upset his family. I should also...

Another Mysterious Case Of The Caring Monk by Swimsinfire

This story happened in Kentucky. It also involves the alcoholic man that gave my son and I so much grief until he passed a few years ago. You can read about him in my first story. We had just met. He was cleaning up his act and working at the monastery, and we had a rather nice relationship goin...

The Seeing Child by Tarajo

It's hard to know where to begin with my story, seeing as I've had many experiences since an early age. I guess the earliest memory I have is when I was about 4 years old. I was sitting in the corner of the living room talking to "Charlie" (that's the name I gave him). I remember plain as day talkin...

Grandma Comes To Say Goobye by ChrisB

It's been a long time since I last experienced any paranormal activity, which I think is a good thing for me. My wife has experienced more paranormal things then I have, which I got to see during the years of our marriage. This leads me to my story because this is my wife's experience and not mine. ...

Laundry Visitor by Cat_Angel86

I'm sharing this story on behalf of my Dad. This experience occurred to him almost 20 years ago, but I was at home asleep at the time in my bedroom upstairs. My Dad is originally from Europe and most of his family still reside over there. The way they lived many years ago is certainly a lot diff...

My Awesome Great-grandmother by Swimsinfire

The Beginning Of My Uncle's Knocking by spiritwaiting

This took place when I was 14 years old. It was around 3 years after my uncle had passed due to suicide. I hadn't mourned him yet so around this time is when I did. One afternoon while I was alone in the house, this took place during summer break and when my parents used a lot of their time worki...

My Friend's Visits by arfulruf

This is not a work of fiction. I've come to a place in my life where most of the current population would not be of an open mind enough to accept my story with an open mind. That will not keep me from trying to get some of my story into print. I do have a lot of time on my hands after my best fr...

Grandpa Visiting My Cubby House by Cat_Angel86

Out of 11 grandchildren, my Mum always told me that my Grandpa always considered me to be his favourite. He died when I was only 6, but from birth until the time he passed away, I spent a lot of time with him. He was a carpenter and built my Cubby House for me. I absolutely loved it! My dad even ins...

What Is That Smell? by Fergie

As a lot of the "older" members of YGS will know, I seem to have a perchance for smelling odours at sometimes the oddest of moments. My following account is no exception to the rule. It is now towards the end of July (or it was, when I wrote this) - our coldest time of the year - no ants, flies o...

3am Wake Up Call by Cat_Angel86

Before I share this story, I would just like to say that this was an experience my parents shared, so I am writing this on behalf of them. Years ago, when my parents first got married, they were lying asleep in bed one night when all of a sudden were woken up, startled, by the sound of the doorb...

The First And Last Time Sean Saw Frank by CheekyLizzy

Friends and relatives say that my mum has a strong life force, although my mum isn't a person that wants to communicate with spirits. She has seen, sensed and heard them from a very young age, right until now. The spirits she sees/sensed or heard are never evil or threatening. But peaceful and calm....

An Urgent Warning by Amihet

After I read Val's post about her son Jaime, who is like a guardian angel warning her of what is coming, it brought back memories of the afternoon that I almost lost my son who was 5 years of age. He is 14 now and he still remembers that Saturday afternoon. Before I get to it, I would like to sh...

Zeus by Fergie

I am casting my mind back to 2009, when my husband and I were given a pair of dogs. They were brother and sister, about a year old. We were told that Zeus and Cleo were Labrador x Rottweiler, although their appearance was of black Labrador. One could see that they had been well cared for as their co...

Orb, Was It Dad? by teneki

A while back, I posted about a few experiences that I had at my parents' cabin, and thought I'd mentioned this night as well, but if I did it must have been in the comments. As always with my experiences, this is odder than what I've heard from others, this one almost bordering on the cliche in part...

In Your Dreams by Fairylights

This story is admittedly an account of a dream but I feel it could take place on this site as it's a dream of almost paranormal circumstance. It's a simple "weird" and somewhat inexplicable one; it's a quick one but an interesting little read. I had a dream a few years ago that was much, much mor...

Beyond The Grave by Bliss006

I have written a few stories here, which are my experiences mostly; but this one is a story where I was a mere witness. I will make this story as brief as possible. My mother-in-law passed away in August 2011 very suddenly. She was not suffering from anything life threatening, just had a bad cas...

Grandpa Saying Goodbye by taurus83

One night out of the blue I had an urge to call my mom, the words "Call your mom" kept popping up in my thoughts.

Grandma Returned To Me by allesgute154

I have been wanting to write this for quite some time. I don't know if there's anything paranormal about this, so I leave it to the readers to judge for themselves. I'll be writing about two separate incidents, which are connected by one common thread - my paternal grandmother. My grandma passed ...

My name is Paula. Six and a half years ago I lost my best friend, my sister Misty. She was 29, she had a massive heart attack. I'm 4 years older and my parents always made sure I watched out for her.

Final Goodbyes by soul_shine

I recently submitted a story titled "Lingering Great Grandparents" about my house. I neglected to mention one of the more strange things that have happened. On one occasion, I was laying in my bed when my television turned on. Only it was just really loud static, as if a VCR had been left on or some...

I Love You, Grandpa Al by sweatseveryday

When I was seven years old my grandpa died. He wasn't just my grandpa, he was also my best friend. We'd do everything together! Go get donuts, eat our meals together, walk to the park, build Lego cities, and much more fun memories I'll never forget. So when my grandpa passed away in his sleep I was ...

Goodby And I Hope You Guys Get Along by Swimsinfire

This happened in 2010 along in May, so maybe that's why I'm thinking of it now. Two good friends of mine died just three days apart, and I was devastated for a long time over it. Just to go into some background about both of them let me explain them. The first one was my friend Loren, who had been...

First Childhood Experience by cobblezz

I was made to believe that ghosts and anything paranormal were just stories and made up, so growing up I disregarded any experiences I had and mostly forgot about them. I have experienced things all throughout my life but I've only recently (in the last 2 years) decided to acknowledge them and pursu...

Illness Or Illusion? by SpookSpector34

Growing up, my 2 brothers and I attended a Catholic grade school that required about a 15 to 20 minute, one-way drive.

I was returning from the local supermarket on Friday afternoon when I saw a man walking towards me who was a fairly close friend.

They're Is Still Here... We Know It by m4dm1nnes0tan

Is My Family Speaking To Me? by DestinyGirl

Although I have viewed this site numerous times as a guest, I have finally gotten up enough courage to share my story.

Crazy Christmas Call Or Just A Crazy Christmas, Maybe? by m4dm1nnes0tan

I know people have told many ghost stories and most people will not believe them. Frankly, I was one of those non-believers when I was younger. Yeah my family would watch paranormal movies and out of this world kind of things. But who would think that something like that could possibly be real? Watc...

Psychic? by Feliciaaxox

As a kid I remember how my dog died. It died when it was paralyzed in our laundry room.

Then after my gr...

Today is the 4th of March 2013, and the day my father would have turned 65 - being born in 1948. Although this is a very sad day for me - he died in June 1999 - I need to share some of my memories of him. He was always young at heart, always ready to pull a prank on people, whether it was his ...

Phantom Touches by cookie-eated-me

The following stories are together, because they are short, and there are a few of them. None of them frightened me, though the first one did surprise me, as I didn't expect it to happen.

Preaching To A Sceptic by triden07

This past Saturday, 16 Feb 2013, I had a friend over to my house. He is your typical non-believer, though he also claims to be completely atheist.

A Reassurance From Beyond by lizzymcizzy

When I was eleven years old, my mother died in the hospital from hitting her head quite hard on the ground. The doctors had told her not to get up, as her body couldn't handle it, but she did anyway, to prove that she could go home, but she lost her balance and hit her head on the floor, causing her...

I had large tubular wind chimes that were making a racket and our motion sensor lights were turning on and off like a strobe light. After a few minutes things settled down. My husband g...

My Grandfather Saved My Life by chrisstar
