Here When I'm Needed 2 by notjustme

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...

Angel's White Feathers by Fergie

It was the week before Christmas 2012, when I heard my first "Voice", which I believe was not of our plane. I had heard other people tell of "voices", even my hubby Ray, had his own experience, with our beloved daughter Angel. I was slightly envious, I must admit! But, on the other hand, I had, time...

The Marine In The Mirror by H3li0

I've posted ghost stories on this site before, but I wanted to start fresh and from the beginning since my last post had been made over a year ago.

The Caring Ghost by Swimsinfire

This story will make you smile. Actually, I've had a few ghost encounters, but this one is warm and fuzzy. I used to live close to the Abbey of Gethsemanie in Kentucky.

Why Did He Come To Me? by geetha50

Sorry, I realize this is kind of long (as usual), so bear with me. I need your help on this one because I am lost on why I experienced and why he came to me. Before I get to my experience, I will tell you about the person that came to me in spirit form. The guy that came to me was a guy I knew...

Eventful Weekend by triden07

Friday night (30 November 2012) my ex came to pick the boys up for the weekend. T didn't want to go at first, but then when "J" got there he was happy to see his dad.

The Man From The Picture by stormy8063

Spirits Playing With My Grandson? by happygrammy3612

It all started a couple of months ago. I was awoken by the sound of my grandsons' music box playing rather loudly.

Suddenly Cold by branson65

I had heard of cold spots when a spirit was present, but I had my doubts as to whether or not this was true. Now, I believe. My mother passed away a little over a year ago, in early November. I reside in Lubbock, Texas, and my mother and sister were in Joplin, Missouri. My mother, 92 years o...

The Farm In Zeerust by triden07

When we were younger, I am guessing around 13, my aunt and uncle dragged my sister, then 11, and I to my uncle's family farm over a school holiday.

A Happy Music Box Experience by zetafornow

My Guardian Angel Story by triden07

I'm not using real names for any persons passed on or alive, and the stories I send now all centre around Tim, my friend's husband, and everything he told us happened this past weekend, so my stories all basically start the same way.

Ghost Of My Uncle by fullname_01

First of all, let me start by saying I was never a very intuitive person. I was never able to see ghosts or feel them. I only had two occasions in which I personally encountered ghosts.

Granny And Little Boy by triden07

We have been living in our house for the past 7 years. From day one I have been very aware of entities residing in the house. They (there are 2) don't mean anyone harm.

Red by MidnightRush

Let me first start off by saying that this is the first story I have written on this site, so please be patient with me. This is a true story, and I would like to share it.

I think ...

Grandpa's Christmas Surprise by PD1981

She Lives On by Lethalintent

I've always been a lonely guy. No brothers or sisters, not that many friends, to be honest I prefer my own company. But you can only be alone for so long before depression and loneliness kicks in. This all started when I was 9 years old. My mother had lost her second child due to the baby (Who wa...

My Cousin's Spirit by Seeker1

I have had many paranormal experiences beginning around the age of 4. I chose to ignore them most of my life due to my religious upbringing.

Turn Off The Television by CronishaxGurl

A few key points before I begin. The TV in my room doesn't have a remote so to shut it off and change the volume etc. You have to do it manually at the TV, and the power button requires a lot of pressure to respond.

Is That You, Dad? by mazza123

This is just an experience that I want to share with you when I was younger. Ok, so when I was around five or six years old, my father was sent off to war. I never really saw him much.

News From The Clairvoyant by Unexplained

A little over ten years ago I lived in a maisonette with my ex-girlfriend (a visual artist), and her pet cat. My ex never talked about the supernatural back then.

Guardian Angel Experience by xnikkibobikkix

This paranormal experience was a very positive one unlike my last few stories. It's funny, I actually do have a lot more experiences with good spirits than negative ones but it seems like people like reading/hearing about the scary stories most. Anyways, so my first paranormal experience ever wa...

A Bad Visit From My Great-grandmother by YoungBee

As a little child, when my great-grandmother (grandfather's mother) was alive, I used to be scared of her. Only reason I was scared of her was because she had these spots all over her skin.

Tsunami Victim Saying Her Goodbye by geetha50

Tissue warning to people like Miracles and Javelina.

Then something happens and all those painful memories come rushing back. This is one ...

Great Grandpa's Passing by reddysteady

Let me start this post by saying that I have not experienced much "scary" paranormal activity, but that the majority of my experiences have been primarily uncanny, comforting, and even helpful, at times.

Shadow Stranger by StarGazer22

There is something in my room that likes to wake me up at night and mess with me. I fear that it may be some sort of entity that likes to take the form of my deceased mom. About six years ago I moved from the city of Marysville, Washington to the small town of Stanwood about 30 minutes away. My dad...

Mother's Final Goodbye? by TheWhisperSilence

This all started when I was 10-yearsold. We had just had a power outage, so the only electrical thing we had were some flashlights so we could see. My father suddenly yelled for me to come into the room. It was pitch black. "Hayleigh, this flashlight just flickered on and off by itself!" At first I ...

Scarf Noose by NyghtOwl

I am new to this but I felt I should submit my experience. I just graduated high school in a little neighborhood right on the city outskirts of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

More Than A Wake by NATAROX101

It was a normal and warm day in May. Well, about as warm as it's going to get in Cleveland. I was 12 years old and I had heard the news a few days ago that my Aunt Kathy's sister, Karen, had died. I had never met her, or at least not as I remember. I was told that I had to go to the wake. I didn't r...

A Sweet Goodbye by virtualboy

Perhaps I'm being overly generous with my assumptions of who this being was, but everything I'm about to type is true. I was 17 when this happened. It was the early months of 2007. First a bit of backstory: My mom's late partner had passed away from brain cancer in the beginning of November ('06)...

The Grave Of Pawpaw by ada

I have decided to write things as they happen. It's easier to get it all out and not worry about what happens next. It's hard to hold it all in. I am sitting at my grandpa's grave right now. I had to send this right away to you guys. He and I never got along too good. But after he died 6 years a...

Saw My Old Friend, But Had No Idea He Had Died by ashville

I'm Lauren, from Cape Town. So great to see locals here too! I'm new to this site, and am enjoying reading all the stories and experiences. Here is my experience of not seeing a ghost, but rather a visit from an old friend. I was around 12 years old (24 now). My dad had fetched my from school, in...
