Strange Smell In My Apartment by Caves2016

My husband and I have been living in our current apartment for almost 2 years. I am skeptical if these occurrences are even paranormal but would love some feedback. Upon moving in, the maintenance man who was fixing the place up for us told us an old veteran man lived in this apartment for many, m...

The Only Haunted House I Lived In by Gigakhan

Like I wrote before, my family is not religious but superstitious. This happened in the early 90's, we lived in a house in Williamsburg, I was 7 I think. The house seemed like any other nothing out of the norm. My mom was a single parent and was getting assistance with her rent. (that played a big...

Tomten On Holiday? by Manafon1

A couple of years ago I submitted an account to YGS with the somewhat sensationalistic title, "Demonic Voices In The Night". In the fascinating comments that followed, Tweed steered me in the direction of the Tomten, creatures described in Scandinavian folklore. Valkricry then provided samples of an...

Snake Shadows On My Wall by EveryHour

I grew up in a very haunted house. I have had countless paranormal experiences but one of the first ones is still very vivid in my memory. I used to always see shadow people, but this encounter was very different. I was very little, maybe 3 or 4 years old at the most, yet I still remember it like it...

A Parting Gift by valkricry

My parents had the habit of moving every few years. Us kids were never privy as to why, for us it was just a fact of life. As a result we were rather use to being the 'new' kids, and in the interim of making friends, despite the difference in ages we were friends. Depending on where my parents had d...

Sounds And Electronic Interference In New Home by Confused21

My husband and I just moved into a nice little townhome. We've only been here a few months and at first everything was fine. It's never had a weird or creepy feeling but lately things have been happening that I can't really make sense of. We have two cats, one of which recently started to meow inces...

Malevolence by C_Emmanuel

This took place over the summer of 2007 in El Sobrante California. I always believed that people were responsible for their behaviors, and that paranormal phenomenon was just a Hollywood gimmick. This summer changed that. Among the range of human emotions, anger has never felt right to me. ...

Lady By The River by EJ3the1

This strange occurrence happened in the summer about 2 years back when a few friends and I decided to go and explore down by the Minnesota river. It was a very rainy afternoon when my friends and I were bored out of our minds sitting at home watching movies and playing video games when I had the ide...

Stoughton, Spiders, And Other Shenanigans by waltrow1274

My sister P had, is having, a rougher life than most people. She is a single mother of two and has been diagnosed with this illness that requires her to be labeled as 100% disabled.

Strange Occurrences In Our Billerica House 2 by waltrow1274

After the events of D E Red and the young woman in the white dress (See: Strange occurrences in our Billerica House) J had enough of the Ouija board, and got rid of it. For me however, things just got weird. We had a 20' round above ground pool, I took to swimming as if I were a fish in a human b...

Terrifying Girl With Doll by OGsan

Let me preface my experience by establishing that before this, I was never a believer in ghosts or the paranormal. Since I am currently Atheist, I used to think that if spiritual elements were man-made, then certainly ghost experiences were also figments of the imagination right? Enter a late dri...

Strange Occurrences In Our Billerica House by waltrow1274

For what it's worth, I am the left handed youngest of four, not that that means anything, it's just that my Uncle (my Mothers brother) is the youngest of three and he is also left handed; I heard somewhere that, that was a thing. From the time I was born until I was 8 my family lived in the north...

Visitors Beware by Itscareyy

2015 - May - Colonial Williamsburg I've always been interested in the paranormal so when I was looking up things to do in Williamsburg the Colonial Ghost Tour immediately caught my eye. I was thrilled! Instead of listening or reading ghost tales I would finally be apart of a real one. Typing that...

Why Are Entities Experienced So Individually? by DirtCreature

I have always wondered why those that are sensitive (or those that happen to just experience a supernatural event) experience them so individually. Some people see black and white entities, others in color, some have been able to speak to them, or hear disembodied voices as clear as day. I find this...

One Last Visit From Dad by DestinyGirl

I have posted before (although it's been a few years) about my grandfather and my mom visiting me in my dreams. Those occurrences were both frustrating and comforting, but they were not "startling." Over the course of time, I had come to understand that I would sometimes have those types of dreams a...

Metallic Manifestations by Bibliothecarius

It has been a while since I posted a story on YGS, and I've seriously considered not submitting this one. Oddly, I haven't finished typing up a different story because it sounds fake to me, even though my family all swear to the truth of it. (It's a weird habit to have: writing out YGS stories and *...

Her Feet Were Swinging by Idontthinktheirevil

Until a couple of months ago. I moved into a new home about 2 year's ago. The shadow figures were quite...

The Haunting On Deer Park by FredisFred

In late 2006 I finished my time in the US Army. I was young and wanted to enjoy my newly found outlook on life outside the Military. This new outlook was indicative of me enjoying some family time.

Mill Valley Santa by ABCNinja

I have enough material to entertain any campfire audience through out the night, when it comes to ghost stories my trunk is full of them. And when I'm into story four or five, I myself start to believe I'm full of shiat, but believe me, these stories are real. This one is about the time I cam...

Resident Spirit Giving Me A Heads Up by spiritwaiting

I have written some of the resident spirit in my home.It's a friendly one, and has quieted down a bit since my last cleansing. We have an understanding I suppose. But as of lately, I have noticed in quite a few incidents, that this one tends to warn me of things to come. On one occasion, durin...

I Think I Got Tickled By A Ghost by TheParanormal_Cat

Every day now, I feel like I'm being constantly watched. I'm not sure why, and maybe it's just my cat. But, sometimes when I'm alone, I feel a light finger stroke my foot. If I'm standing up, it happens somewhere on my rib cage. It's kind of creepy that this happens, because I have heard a voice a f...

Hungry Ghost? by moodyblue4

I've actually had a couple paranormal experiences. But the one that really sticks out to me is something that happened over my sister and brother-in-law's house.

Haunted Condo by vala

I decided after posting my first story, I would just tell my stories in chronological order. If you read my previous story, you know that the house I grew up in was haunted and that I believe that a lot of the paranormal activity originated with my father (who is not a nice person). So this story...

There is a spirit who visits me, mostly during the night time hours but the presence is being felt during the day time hours now as well.

The Woman In The Car by ThePhoenixIsHere

Haunted Biltmore Hotel by sherm784

What Ran Through My Kitchen? by Aliviashae

Over the years, my home has been fairly normal, nothing too in-your-face scary. But I mean, I've always had that weird sixth sense thing going on.

Time - Is It Really Relevant? by Miracles51031

Do you ever wonder if time matters, or is the same, when we die? Years ago I submitted a story called "My Ghost Who Cussed" and this sparked an interest, for me at least, about the difference between time while we are living versus time after we die. It also created conversation in the comments sect...

The Last Duet by valkricry

I guess the thing you need to know for this particular event to make sense, is in that long ago when the doctors gave my mother three months to live, two things happened simultaneously; she made up her mind to make them out to be 'liars', and she became very obsessed with 'her songs'. Referring to t...
