Ancient Fort by Shlain

This is a story I am excited, yet apprehensive about. This takes place at our Accounting Head Office. This building is massive and in the shape of a perfect square with an inner courtyard of what looks like modern mixed with old cobblestone paving. This inner area is big enough to have roughly 2...

Hospital Carer And False Alarm? by Shlain

The Nun at the Hospital This is an experience that happened to an aunt of mine while she was pregnant with her second daughter. I believe, if I remember correctly, she was in hospital due to feeling unwell and the doctors insisted she stay a few days just to be safe. She was lying in a ward ro...

Hibiscus Coast by sistermary

Many a summers holidays of my childhood were spent at the seaside resort towns of the Hibiscus Coast. When my father retired in 1992, my parents bought a cottage at one of these pretty coastal villages to escape the crime and congestion of the city, with us, their 3 teenage children. Easter, Chri...

Enter The Guardian by Nephylim

As I have already said in my previous post, "Possession, Apparitions and Terror", I went through a period of my life where I had constant encounters with a being that I call the 'Shadow Man'. I would wake up every night with him sitting on the couch in my bedroom watching me. Whether it was him ...

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...

Communication by triden07

To all readers, new and established, this is a story about my most recent experiences with my resident guardian spirits. That would be Charlie and Gran (her name was Allen Mari by the way, and yes, that is her real name, though people who knew her very well called her Monta). Lately I have notice...

Adam by triden07

As most readers/posters may have seen, I made an awesome discovery last week, around 26 June 2013, concerning the little boy ghost in my house, who I have lovingly been calling Kiddo since finding out about him. As an added bonus, I had Valkricry from YGS, as a total bystander, sensing the same thin...

The Ghostly Meow by BattleScars

When I was younger, I lived with my grandparents in a small house. Every afternoon, I would be helping my Nanna peel vegetables or help with making the dinner or afternoon snacks. The kitchen was really tiny, and there was a window to look through into the dining room. Around 4:30 in the afternoon, ...

Something Evil May Be Present by Niki_chaos

For some reason my childhood home scared me. My parents bought another house in town and we moved when I was in high school. My grandparents currently stay in my old home. I am now 21 years old and I heard my parents talking to each other about my grandpa who went ill when they moved into the house....

Possession, Apparitions And Terror by Nephylim

The events I am about to reveal are extremely personal, so bear with me as I try to relive the most terrifying night of my life. (Names have been changed due to the sensitivity of the story.) I was 17 at the time, finishing my last year of school, when my brother, Sean (22 yrs), and his girlfrie...

The Night Of The Ouija by Nephylim

I have always been able to "feel". Since I can remember I have "seen", without my eyes, the creatures, beings and entities that are around us, whether it is a face in the paint on the wall or a shadowy figure in my room. I believe that everyone has some form of psychic ability. I believe myself ...

The Creepy Blue Room In My Grandparents Home by Noenoe

We used to rent my grandmother's house in Bothaville, South Africa. Before we rented the place I stayed at my grandparents home before my parents moved from Germiston (also in South Africa) to Bothaville. It was not really an old house, but creepy as hell! The floors of the house were wooden and not...

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...

Hospital By The Sea by sistermary

Working night shift in the Emergency department was always chaotic. I was born, trained at and went on to work as a registered nurse in a massive government hospital situated on the beachfront of a South African coastal city. Built in the late 1800's, upgraded in the 1940's, the once proud and pr...

My Double Or Evil Ghost? by Micky1hay

Let me get straight to the story. I am 21 years old and stay with my parents. I have a two year old son but at the time when this occurred he was only a few months old. Being a new mom you are, most of the time, very drained and all you want is sleep. Well, one night my mom offered to take the ba...

Mother And Daughter by triden07

This story is linked to others in my profile, such as "My frantic Mother & Now we all know". And it's about my mom and her mother, one of our guardian spirits. My mom has had health problems for a few years now. In February this year, she moved to Mozambique with my dad. Seeing as how that area i...

The Boogeyman? by Its-Pixie

I have been a regular visitor to this, I feel comfortable now to share my story with you, this will be the first story I submit. The story I'm about to tell you happened a few years ago, I was 13 at the time, I am 26 now and this still haunts me to this day. I stayed with my parents in a quiet s...

Guess Who's Back by triden07

As a common courtesy to new readers and those not familiar with my stories, this is an account of the three spirits in my home, Gran (my mom's mother), Charlie (a friend of mine) and Kiddo (a little boy who died being burned to death on the property). And the person who has made my interactions poss...

It Isn't Always Imagination by Fergie

Before you begin reading, I would like to post a "Tissue Warning" for all the em-paths. (Before I get a telling-off again!) I have noted with interest, that many folks post stories from their childhood, in which they recall sightings of ghosts or spirits. I have also noted just how many folks cl...

Hellhouse by Jac006

Ever since I can remember I have been prone to feeling psychic energies, the good and the bad. My friends tell me I have the uncanny ability to read people without as much as speaking to them. This ability is especially observed in my mother's family, both an aunt and two cousins have declared to se...

The Mean Old Man With A Coat by ZellaB

This is not a spectacular story but I am very worried about my son. So if anyone can give me any information or advice, it will be much appreciated. My husband, son and myself used to live in a town house, in Port Elizabeth in South Africa. We lived there without any problems for about a year when t...

The Eerie Blue House by Niki_chaos

Let me start from the beginning. I'm Scarlet and as most young adults I wanted my own home. While still living with my parents I started looking for the perfect home that as in my budget. My parents supported me luckily. I would phone the real estate people all the time and would look at houses but ...

A Helping Hand by Adb0423

My mother passed away not too long ago - 19 March 2013 - she was unwell for quite some time. The week before she died she was in hospital - she was living in an old age home. When I got to the hospital they had discharged her, nothing was wrong with her. I decided to take her home with me until t...

Experience With A Demon When My Grandad Died by StormJM

I was about 7 years old living in Worcester (western cape). My Grandad had just passed away and for some reason my mum refused to sleep in any of the bedrooms. We were house sitting that evening! My mum told me that we should sleep next to the fireplace in the lounge cause it was cold, with the ...

Living With A Bad Spirit Or Energy by StormJM

My husband, me and kids moved to a newly built home 2 years ago. Since we moved we had some scary nights... Weird sounds at night and movement downstairs as our bedrooms are upstairs. I told my husband many times that something is really weird and we should consider having our home blessed again....

A Shove In The Right Direction by triden07

As a means to avoid confusion, this post is about my resident ghosties residing in my house, namely Gran, Charlie and Kiddo. On my birthday this year (March 2nd) my oldest friend in the world (Adb0423) and her boyfriend were among the guests. Now, as she has explained in her posts as well, her bo...

Our Girls - It Runs In The Family by Fergie

Last year Easter 2012, we had what we like to call a 'Gathering of the Clan' -- not a large one according to historical events, but our children, and our children's' children, ten members of the family, all under one roof. It felt so good having all of us sitting around in our middle daughter's loun...

My Boyfriend's Dad by Adb0423

My boyfriend has the extraordinary gift/curse of communicating with spirits. Just one of his many gifts! He has the ability to see into your past and feeling your emotions (empathy ability). No doubt he has been richly blessed with all of this. Now, about a month ago (end of January beginning Feb...

Letter To My Dad On His Birthday by Adb0423

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 ...

Protectors by triden07

These are a few jumbled events of where I now know we were really being protected. I can say with certainty that I at least have mostly only experienced good ghostly encounters, bar one. I'm truly thankful for that. My younger sister and I had decided this particular weekend in June 2011 to go s...

A Father's Reassurance by Adb0423

Good day. This happened to me in April 2012. I had just broken up with my boyfriend end of Feb 2012 and had moved out of our shared house we lived in with my mother. As breakups went this was not the best, because the reason we had broken up is he had started getting violent towards me, shoving me a...

The Lady From The Cupboard by NessaJ

I am new to this forum, so excuse me if I don't come across clearly all the time. I have had "paranormal" experiences throughout most of my life and have kept it to myself as some people have said to me that I'm "gepla met die duiwel", South Africans will understand those words. To others I think...

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. Since I have been raised Christian, but rarely go to Church, I don't have a problem with hearing about other cultures, religions, and the people who beli...

Drained by triden07

This happened in the past month (Jan - Feb 2013) After my operation Tim had been in contact with me every day, always starting conversations with, "Did the patient behave today?" After Charlie showed him the flash of me bending over in the kitchen holding my stomach, I'm guessing he and gran were ...

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...

Can A Lot Of Pain Cause This Activity? by triden07

As I have mentioned before, I have been living in my current home since 2005. Gran made sure we bought the house, and I have always felt presences, though they mostly scared the wits out of me. The weird thing for me, my parents bought this house because I had just gotten married and my mom had sepa...

Protective Spirits After Surgery by triden07

I was very sick on Sunday, 6th January 2013, and by Monday I sought out a doctor. By Wednesday I had seen 5. To crown everything, I had to be in surgery on Thursday. I was so scared. Charlie did his best to calm me down, I was in pain, and even little Kiddo braved leaving his sanctuary to walk with ...

Vacation Experiences by triden07

This past December (2012) we set off for Mozambique. Excitement aplenty as we packed the car on the evening of the 14th of December, we would leave 3:00AM on the 15th. Thanks to my aunt, who never fails to make a late entry, we were only on our way at 4:10AM. I drove the first shift. By 7:00AM I was...

1950's Bus Causing Hauntings by Shlain

This is an experience that happened when I was in Standard 2 (Grade 4) in 1992. Our Primary School was divided into 4 buildings. Two of these buildings were double storied and housed the class rooms. The 3rd was our school hall and the 4th was a detached single story building housing the 2nd set ...

Man At The Foot Of My Bed by danij123

I am 21 years old, I live with my boyfriend and his family in an old house, it was built in the 1920's I am told. My boyfriend and I share a room in the attic that has been re-done. The first time I ever went there I had a funny feeling (maybe it's just because its an old house) Whenever we ha...

Sniff, Sniff... Who's There? by Fergie

Dear readers, at the insistence of Miracles, Rook and Granny, I started keeping a 'Journal' towards the end of June last year (2012). I am truly grateful to all of you. I now have some strange (to me) occurrences which I would like to share. To avoid any confusion, if I mention Zeus - that is my ...

Ghost Or Just Tired by kaiyasam

I have two stories. To me Ghosts/Spirits have alsways been interesting even though I have never really wanted to meet or just see any, plus that has always been my mothers thing, where she has ended up talking to them, even talking to an ex who she didn't even know had died. My first story I am s...

Helping Hands by triden07

To say that we have had a busy few days is stating things lightly. After mom's surgery last week, Gran has been very active around mom. She does not hang in the passage; she is constantly where mom is. Friday afternoon Tim asked me at one point if mom was sitting in the lounge, so I did not even ...

Visits From Blue-grey People by Shay88

I'll start off by mentioning that I live near Johannesburg, South Africa, and that the experience below took place a few suburbs from where I currently stay. In my late teen years I used to wake up every night (in the early hours of the morning - usually around 2 or 3am). I would often not be abl...

My Frantic Mother by triden07

My mother was in a flat spin. Completely worked up about going for surgery that is potentially life threatening. She kept checking and double-checking her bags, trying to decide if there was anything of importance that she had forgotten. She was looking for her slippers, everywhere, and just could n...

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. "J" has always had a knack to say a single sentence and get me so upset that I start shaking. He did it again on Friday night. But, I...

Farm House In The Karoo by Fergie

I would like to share with you, another account from my Uncle Norman. This must have taken place in 1950/1, as Norm had bought a 'new' car, a grey Vanguard. He was delighted to have 'wheels' for the first time in his life; eager to try it out on a road trip. Norm and a friend (I honestly can't...

Haunted K9 Unit Of Police Station by Shlain

This story takes place at my Mother's work in the building that houses the K9 Unit and the Radio Control Room where the 10111 emergecy (also known as 911) calls are taken. First I will tell you my experience in the Radio Control Room so please bear with me as this story is a bit lengthy, but its wo...

Uncanny Thought by triden07

This is more of a question than a story. I have seen first hand how much power there is in twin connections. My father's mom was one of a set of identical twins, and she told us a lot of instances where they were hundreds of kilometres apart, but they always knew when things were not right with t...

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. My cousin and I were born 13 days apart, partners in crime our entire lives. My uncle's father had died a few years prior to this, and his mother was li...

Little Things In The Office by triden07

Just as clarification, this is not an unknown entity wreaking havoc in my office, this is Charlie being mischievous when he seems to get bored. I do feel that I should give a little background on my work environment. I work in an office building with three offices, and two open areas. When you en...

Prisoner's Ward by triden07

Between 15 August 2008 and 29 September 2008, my little boy was in a coma in a hospital in Johannesburg. The Staff and Management of said hospital had been so kind to my husband and me that they gave us a room in the Maternity ward to sleep in, as they knew we would not want to leave the hospital. A...

Now We All Know by triden07

I have been sitting and thinking about the stories I have posted. One thing that I can say in all honesty, and frankly, with a great sense of relief, is that my stories predominantly do not centre around fear. I am honestly thankful for that. This past weekend, my sister stayed over for a few nig...

Bad Feelings In Aunt S's House by triden07

This is sort of a follow up on the story "Two Houses He Has Never Been". On Friday, 23 November 2012, I went to my aunt's house to go and pick up a photo of my Gran. It is the only picture that my mom and my aunt have knowledge of, since she was exceptionally camera shy and it was apparently a ba...

Is The Cook Still There by triden07

When I was 13, we went to visit family on their farm. They lived in a town dominated by farms and the people were so nice. As we were in town the Saturday, my mother bumped into her eldest sister, who she had not seen for years. The reunion was a shock for them, but they were happy to see each other...

Sarel 2 by SquishySwart

So if you have read my previous story you should have an outline of what we have been living with for the past 17 years. This is a more detailed event that happened around the time I was 13 and been living in the house for 3 years or so. My mom and dad have been divorced for a very long time and ...

The Overlook 2 by triden07

This past weekend, 6 and 7 October 2012, my best friend (I am not using their real names) Elaine, and her husband Tim and their kids came to visit me. Tim has been able to see and commune with the dead since he was a little boy. He says it wrings him out physically and emotionally and he feels it is...

Worry Transcends The Living And The Dead by triden07

This past week, I had experiences with each of the three entities residing in my house. Communication was made possible by Tim, as per usual, even though he never was physically in my house. Gran - I have been suffering from pain for a few months now, but as the weeks wear on, it becomes more pro...

Marie's Shadow by triden07

In late 2003, at the age of 19, I met the man I would end up marrying a year and a half later. He had bought a 2 bedroom apartment with his mother, and not long after they moved in, his older sister fell on hard times and ended up moving in there as well. There was no room for her so part of the lou...

Sarel by SquishySwart

I have been reading the stories on here for the past couple of weeks and find them fascinating. My story begins on the 1st of June 1995. Now firstly I need to give you a little bit of a lay out, my room and my sisters room are on the other side of the house, with the kitchen basically splitting u...

The Events That Made Me Realize We Were Not Alone by triden07

Growing up, I had experiences with spirits here and there. It seemed as if someone made me aware of the fact that someone had died in a place, or if someone told me they had experienced something in a room or house, I became very aware. For the first few months that we lived in our current house, I ...

I Knew Before Anyone Else Found Out by triden07

I have been thinking of things that have happened in my life that I could not explain, until now. Some of these things I have mentioned in posts, just feel I should document them as a proper submission. When I was 15 I had an experience that I found very strange. I woke up one morning in October,...

Just A Little Goodbye by triden07

Since finding out about my guardian, and Kiddo, I have been thinking about experiences I have had in my life. To my knowledge I have never had experiences with negative entities (apart for the thing in my house 3 weeks ago) and I could not recall ever seeing a ghost/spirit. Until last night. Mom ...

My Aunt's Place, The Room And The Mirror by Shlain

This story was written last year. Sorry for the delayed post. We were together for a family gathering at my Aunt's house. We were about 12 people there and we decided to sit in the entertainment area, because it was the biggest room. We were all sitting on the couches just chatting away waiting f...

The Face On My Bed by Shlain

This happened a few years ago during the Halloween season. I was up late one night watching a horror movie marathon. My cat was sitting in the window looking out over our front yard. In our front yard we only have one thing: a tree. This tree is not so old, because when we moved in it was a little b...

Haunted Through Out The Years by Shlain

These experiences are small compared to some of the others that I've posted and still will post. My parents and I were sitting in the lounge watching TV one night. I started feeling this cold sensation over my left foot like a very gentle breeze or like when you open the freezer door and get that...

Knocking On Heaven's Door by Fergie

Dear Readers, I have been advised to issue a "tissue warning" for all the em-paths, out there. I shall start my tale, at the very beginning of our Angel's life! At 5:20am, 23 July 1970, our third and last child was born... A beautiful baby girl. We named her Angelique, which was soon shortened, t...

Who's There by realdeal

This is the first time I am placing my story online. I have read plenty of your stories and find it very interesting that so many people believe in the paranormal. I live in a small town East London, South Africa. A few years ago my Step father passed away so I moved in by my mother. From the ve...

Two Houses He Has Never Been by triden07

This is another story where Tim was the link between the living and the dead. When my mom was in her last year of high school, her sister lived with family (they have not spoken in over 30 years) in Pretoria whose house held paranormal energy. My aunt had explained that everywhere in the house, t...

Amy's Experience With Kiddo by triden07

My cousin Amy has always been able to sense spirits. Though, she could always see them very clearly, when they chose to show themselves to her, she could never communicate with them. At some point, she had become so afraid of what she could see that she willed herself to turn it off. Though, she can...

Ward 4b - Room 210 by triden07

This incident happened on the night of 24 July 2012. I had been hospitalized with Bronco Pneumonia and ended up in a ward with, at that point, 4 other ladies. As you enter the ward you have a total of six beds. Three on the left and three on the right. I was given the last bed on the left. In the...

Charlie's Anguish by triden07

As my experiences grow and increase, I learn a lot about the spirits in my home. Especially the one who is with me constantly. Charlie. (As with my other posts, I do not use real names, for people past or present). This past Saturday, 3 November 2012, we had a few people over for a braai (barbequ...

It Feeds On Panic & Fear by triden07

Guys, this story spans from Wednesday, 17 October 2012 to Sunday, 21 October 2012. It is quite a long story, so please bear with me. Wednesday, 17 October 2012 - I had just gotten home from work and sat down on the couch. My mom was already home and she was fiddling around on her laptop, as per u...

Angry Lady by Siskakes

If you have read my previous stories you will know that I am very interested in ghosts etc but am terrified of actually experiencing it myself, which turns out is happening more and more often. I experience sleep paralysis sometimes but that's just what it is. I feel like I can't move while I'm '...

Granny And Little Boy 2 by triden07

This past weekend, 6 to 7 October 2012, my friend Elaine, her husband Tim and their kids visited with us. Tim has been able to see and communicate with spirits since he was a little boy. It drains him physically, causing headaches, and mentally, but he says he cannot fight if they need to communicat...

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. This past weekend, 6 to 7 October 2012, my friend Elaine, her h...

What Are They Doing Here? by Rozo

I would just like to get a bit of guidance here. Recently, in the last month or so, activity has been quite busy in my 3rd floor apartment. My fiancee and I have, on the same occasion and same time, seen/experienced 3 entities in our living room while we were sitting in there watching TV and eating....

The Overlook by triden07

This is the story of a house we lived in where very strange things happened. This was between December 1998 and May 1999. When we had moved in, we made a sign that we put up outside of the gate, calling the house "The Overlook". Which we thought really fit the house, because if you looked in from an...

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. In fact, one of them is completely focused on my mother. Ok, maybe I should explain this statement. My mother grew up in foster ...

She Didn't Want Us To Sleep by triden07

I have experienced quite a few exceptionally scary things in my life, and I would like to start with experiences I had when I was 18-years old. This was in 2002. I live in South Africa, and at that point we were living in a house that I had never had any bad or paranormal experiences in until tha...

Hide And Seek At My Aunt's House by beautifuleden

I have had a few experiences in my life, and will be recounting them over the next few days. This particular experience happened when I was about 7 or 8 years old. We (my mom, younger brother and I) were over at my aunt's house for an afternoon visit. One thing you must know about my aunt is...

The Motorbike Light by Fergie

It must have been the summer of '81, when Nicky, our eldest daughter, started pestering us to go to a Disco! The answer was "No! Definitely not! You are far too young!" Over the next few weeks, she wheedled and cajoled; begged, pleaded and threatened! Eventually, her Dad and I came to an agreement w...

My Daughter's Doggie by beautifuleden

Thanks you for reading my story. If anyone has similar experiences, please comment below! My daughter is almost 3 years old. We live in a ground floor apartment, which we have been renting for almost 2 years. The building was built about 6 years ago, so I don't know much about previous tenants in my...

Conversation With A Beggar by Temilicious

So I'd like to share with you a very weird thing that happened to me last week. For those who reside in Johannesburg South Africa, you probably know of Gandhi Square in the CBD area. Well my experience happened around there last week Wednesday when my boyfriend and I went to go help a friend of his ...

Ghost At My School Camp by curious_girl

This is one of those things I've never been able to forget. In 2004, when I was 12 years old I went on my Grade 6 school camp. We did these every year, but it was the first I'd ever been to as I have always been afraid of being away from home We went to a place called Camp Nelu, and it was suppos...

Terror In The Prison by Fergie

I was one of those incredibly stupid (or naive) young people, that didn't read the fine print before 'signing on the dotted line'! I found myself hundreds of kilometres away from where I had intended, at the gates of Kroonstad Prison. Thankfully, not as an inmate, but as a new prison wardress. I ...

Creepy Passage by Ghosthunter00

Years ago we were asked to look after the house of friends in the same street as us, as they were going away for a week. We had known them for years, and obviously had visited them hundreds of times over that time. Their house felt normal- I am usually very sensitive to "presences." I could not ...

I Think Our New Offices Are Haunted by Siskakes

I have recently started a new job about a month ago and travel a lot to different branches throughout South Africa. Our head offices are based in JHB. About a week ago before I left for Durban, I was coming into the building from lunch. All our doors are card access controlled. One of my collegue...

Presence In The Bathroom by SpiderZA

Some of you might have read my previous story where I mentioned I am sensitive to feeling things as opposed to actually seeing anything. Anyway, a month or so ago I started working at a new company and two weeks or so into my new job, one of the ladies from one of the other offices has a heart at...

The Incident At Mom's House by Rozo

Year was 2006, I just had separated from my longtime girlfriend and lost my 1st business to unfortunate circumstances and as a result, packed what I had and moved in back at Mommy's house for some loves and light. Being a Jewish mother, she was only to happy to have her boy back with her and this...

Suicidal Mother's Ghost Or Not? by socrazy100

This is the only true and real experience that I've ever had. My grandmother was the only one in our family that could see, sense and communicate with ghosts. I always loved listening to her stories and I wondered if I would ever experience it for myself. One night I did. I was in Std 6 and had a...

Angel's House by Fergie

I think I should get this in print, before I forget! My short-term memory is getting worse. I really should keep a diary, as many have suggested; sometimes though, things happen at awkward times. The last week, I spent at our youngest daughter Angel's home, situated to the south of Johannesburg. ...

Are Dream Catchers Portals? by Siskakes

My mother is a very spiritual person and cannot be swayed from her beliefs. She was born with the gift\ curse of being able to sense and see things in the other realms. I have had an experience before (Stifling Experience); however, I don't sense or see anything from the other realms. I'm very ok...

Saw An Imp In My Friends House by ashville
