The Lady At The Santa Barbara Mission by Bigwilly

I grew up in California, and as a young child I was told by my Grandmother I had the gift. I was not quite sure what she meant being about 7 years old at the time.

The Night Gown by Dar77

The Skeleton In The Purple Car by triplevirgo

When I was maybe four years old, I was staring out of my family's living room window that led to the street. I don't really know why I was looking out the window but I remember it feeling like I was staring for quite some time. Out of nowhere a skeleton (no not someone dressed as a skeleton) pulled ...

Keeps Coming Back by Haven

For the last couple of nights I've been hearing noises in my bedroom at night. The noises sound like there is someone walking around in the bedroom and when I'm asleep. I get woken by a rustling noise, like someone is crumbling paper or moving a plastic bag. I thought maybe it could be a mouse even ...

Jealous Ghost by Rozita000

This is about my brother, he is 34, good looking, athletic and very kind but he has been having a ghost problem for the past 4 years. We are not sure how it started or why!

Shape-shifter by ero94

I'm not too sure what to name this experience, so I went ahead and chose shape shifter and you will see why as I continue my story. I was riding my bike really late at night, on my way to my girlfriend's house for some late night fun. I had just left my house and was about 1 minute away from it wh...

I Bought A Haunted House by trentinray

We just bought a house at the end of March and we have been having some odd things happening.

The screens were still in place and the back gate leading to their windows was still latched...

What Does She Want With Me? by ELINOEL96

My name is Elijah. I live in a house with two other roommates whom I consider to be like family. Ever since I could remember, I've been able to feel shadows. The figures that follow you, whether good or evil, I could sense them so intensely that I could describe how they look, without actually...

Tore Us Apart by Haven

A few years ago, my oldest daughter was preparing to take her First Communion. The church required that parents and godparents attend a two day retreat.

My Room With The Woman by ClutchCain

As a kid in I grew up in two houses. One was with my mom and the other was with my dad. I always felt more at home with my dad because my mom's house had a bad energy.

A Spirit Led Me To New York, To His Old Apartment by Nylaca

I visited New York for the first time in January, while on tour (I'm a musician). On the third night I had a dream about someone who was well known in entertainment, who had long been crossed over... (no they weren't a musician) The dream: I was standing in Times Square by myself, in the snow ...

What Was Making That Noise? by chuckz_21

I lived with my mom at her house for 20 years and I have had quite experiences there and so have others. I do not live there anymore but I still remember everything I experienced while living there.

Delightful Experience by chuckz_21

This happened to me about 6 years ago, me and few friends were hanging out and decided to go to a ditch (just plain land that had a few tracks). To get there we had to go under the street through I guess a tunnel or so (I don't know what they are actually called). There is a ramp you have to go up t...

The One Who Was Spying On Us by chuckz_21

I use to work inside a warehouse and I had three incidents when I saw someone who actually wasn't there. The first time I saw someone I thought it was our boss who was real pain in the butt. The managers inside the warehouse would wear a red vest, he is Caucasian, with blonde hair and blue eyes. I...

The Back Room by Fairyhead

When I was a preschooler, we moved to a shadowy house surrounded by a creek. Bay trees grew close, hugging the house and making the rooms darker.

Paranormal Experiences At My Grandma's House by kittenglasses

When I was born, I lived with my dad, mom and grandma in my grandma's house in Chowchilla, CA. This town is notorious for gangs, shootings, and plenty of "crazies" as the locals called them. This story is not about them, but I figured I should establish that first. I will be writing in this account ...

Peek-a-boo by ceciline

I lived with my parents at the time that this happened. We had a nice home, I loved the kitchen. We had a bar separating the kitchen from the living room, and I would sit there everyday and do my homework there. I'm also a total night owl. So I went into the kitchen one night, really late. I was ma...

A Voice? by ilikecocacola

This story took place on October 31, 2017. This night was one of the most creepiest nights in my life, it was about almost 2 years ago.

Patio Door Face And The Shadow Figure by KankokuMochi

I remember when I was a senior in high school, I was preparing for college. When I wasn't doing that, I would be spending time with my family. We were just playing the Wii and chatting about life when my mom sent me to get her purse and when I asked her where was it, she told me it was in the Di...

The Voices That I Thought Was Thiers by KankokuMochi

I remember when I was in my first year of college, I woke up around 3 AM in the morning. Let me give you an idea of the placement of the master bedroom to my room. My room was just perpendicular to the Master bedroom and parallel to the bathroom. But the main focus was the master bedroom and my ...

Big Black Dog by Haven

When I was around 15 or 16 years old, I was alone at home because my family had gone to a party. My mom was very hesitant to let me stay by myself because they were going to be out pretty late. I remember pleading with her and telling her I needed to get some homework done and I didn't feel well to ...

Something Cold by Haven

I have mentioned in other stories, or maybe in comments, that lately I've been feeling my bed move when I'm trying to fall asleep. I have even seen my sheets move when I am completely frozen still. I have done some research on the internet to see if this is probably some kind of medical condition. I...

Because I Talked To It, It Got Worse by AndrewSimpson

I've lived in the same house for many years. Each year something happens, sometimes scary sometimes annoying. In a full house of 9 people not everyone has had an experience. My two little brothers have never had an experience. One of little sisters told me she heard whispering once. My other two y...

Interference On Camera by KankokuMochi

Note this will be very short. So this just happened recently and as I am typing this, I feel like something is outside my house. Not only that, the cameras in the house keep rebooting and the displays keep going to black. So a little backstory, I'm a 20 years old and while I may be a person w...

Grandma Visiting Me In My Dreams by pbandj

This is my first time publishing one of my stories on here although I've always been a fan of reading stories on this website for years. I'm going to try to explain everything as much as possible. So back in 2006 my family and I lost our grandma. It was extremely difficult for me because I had gro...

Supernatural Entity In My Home As A Child by Chris1989

For privacy reasons I will not share the exact location this took place, but I will state it occurred in a newly built house in Southern California. I currently still live in this house. This event took place in the late 1990's. One night when I was about 8 years old, I was sleeping in my sister's...

Is It Following? by Haven

This just happened to me last night: I was lying in bed with the lights off going through some emails on my phone when I hear a loud popping noise followed by something hard hitting the ceiling and then hitting me in the forehead. I sat up really fast and turned on the lamp, I sat there looking aro...

Am I Seeing My Brother? by Haven

Earlier this year I received a call from my sister telling me Luis, our brother, had passed away. Luis had been sick for a while; he was getting dialysis a couple of times per week so I believe he had kidney problems. He passed away in January 2018, he would have been 51 in April, when he was younge...

Paranormal Experiences Related To Mind-altering Drug Usage? by alexandrapr369

I stayed living in Puerto Rico for maybe 5 more years after my experiences from my last post stopped. And even the first 3 years that I moved here to San Francisco, CA I did not experience anything paranormal. Until I noticed that, after I started having a regular meditation practice and also got a ...

Knock At My Door by Mo121769

Since I have been living at this motel in Ontario, I have had knocks at my door at different times at Midnight and 2am. When I look through the perp hole, there's no one there. The knock is always the same way. It's a weak knock that can be identified as either a child or a woman's. It never hap...

The Fan by bearyscary

So roommate A and I entered our dorm room around 9:15 PM right, the lights were off, the room was cold, you know, how it usually is. Except something was different. There was a faint whirring near roommate A's bed. Upon walking over, we realized the fan was on and my mind immediately went to roommat...

Phone Message by Haven

My father passed away in May 2006 due to complication with Diabetes. He had been fighting an infection in one of his feet for several months, he went to see a lot of doctors in the hopes that they would be able to save his leg. Unfortunately, they were not able to save his leg and it ended up being ...

Ghost App by trinity98

I know what you're thinking! "Ghost app? Bunch of baloney!" I thought the same when I first heard of it and even more when I first used it (I started using this app about 2 years ago so around the end of 2015 or begging 2016) but the more I used it the more the responses became more relevant to my q...

Mimicker by trinity98

Back in 2013-2014 my dad moved in his girlfriend months after my mom died. She is a very selfish lady, she wasn't terrible to me but she still allowed us to live like that to benefit herself, so I am not a very big fan of her. Her and my dad are both addicts so it was easy for my dad to brush her of...

Santa Barbara Trip by alisaprune

I worked in Santa Monica at a salon on Wilshire Blvd. While I was there a manager from a different location was getting married. The stylists from the salon wanted to go to their boss' wedding. The salon was in Santa Barbara, about 1 hour and 45 minutes away. The owner of both salons decided to pu...

Mambo by jsapair

Back in the mid-70's a buddy of mine bought some remote, high elevation acreage in Butte County, CA. It had been a Christmas tree farm at one time. One year he gave me permission to cut a tree on his property. It was getting dark and I came across a huge Douglas fir or pine tree stump that had a cer...

Spirit In My Bedroom? Somebody Help Me? by hellokitty123

I'll make this as short as possible. The signs: * Whenever I go to sleep I feel that something is poking me? Poking my whole body? It's very softly. Something also touches my hair too. This has been happening for maybe 2 years. I get really scared sometimes so I go sleep in the living room somet...

It Watches by trinity98

I have had multiple experiences with the paranormal before my mother died. However once she died and it seemed the activity picked up with the darker entity that I call the black figure. My first memory that I can remember of the figure is when I was about 4 or 5 (back when my mother was alive). I...

Spirit Voice On Beach by Berggraf38

This is my first time writing on this site. I've been reading for almost a year since I had a few paranormal experiences after my dad passed away almost a year ago. I'll save those for later though.

Military Men Of The Queen Mary by southcaliguy

My name is George, and this so happens to be my first time writing/telling my story to the public in any fashion outside of family members and close friends. I have nothing to hide so feel free to ask any questions you may have after reading this. My experience takes place aboard The Queen Mary in L...

Random Sounds by svvar

I was inspired and brought to nostalgia by a comment I read on a story by another member. It made me reflect and rethink on the house that I lived in growing up with my parents... I thought, hey maybe all these little things are something? Maybe not. I mentioned before that I have heard experien...

Heard Clearly My Husband Call For Me But He Didnt by Angeee10

My husband and I were at the car wash and went inside to wait for our car to get done. My husband went to the bathroom and I was sitting around the corner a ways. After a couple minutes, I heard him yell "babe"...I turned my head a tad in that direction as I wasn't sure if I really heard him. He...

My Uncle's Mean Friend by MaggieMay_Not

I hadn't intended to share another story right now, as I have 'Window View' waiting for approval. Two coming out at once seemed excessive, but for some odd reason I'm feeling a nudge. First a bit of history. My father's family were caretakers of a very old cemetery in Kentucky for all of his grow...

Phantom Vehicle by junemoonchild69

In August of 2006, I saw a "phantom vehicle" on Big Tujunga Canyon Road (Angeles Crest National Forest) in Sunland, California. It was late evening around 10:00 pm. My friend (who lives there) and I stopped by his home so he could pick up some of his belongings. We parked my Jeep in a small space on...

The Queen Mary Kids? by SucculentMania

I am curious skeptic, it has always been a source of entertainment to watch paranormal shows like "Ghost Hunters" and the Saginaw, Michigan films made by "Prozak" (although I find Prozak's films to be a bit more difficult to debunk in certain cases). A California native, I have heard many times that...

Freedom by LuciaJacinta

I was a young mother in 2004. I loved my husband and children and just enjoyed the day to day routine of raising kids. We were living in Northern California at the time in a cute little home and I was happy. My oldest just started first grade. I had a three year old and a new baby. Life was busy...

Crazy Encounters by meghanh14

My name is Meghan and I am from a small town in Southern, California known as Moorpark. Now, I have had a few encounters with I guess would be considered the paranormal.

The Dead Mans Ghost? by Avery

So its been a while since anything has happened in the house I'm currently in. In the late 1980's or early 1990's (before I moved in, and before I was born), a man died in the back bedroom. We have lived in this house for the past 3 years, next January will be 4 years, and things have only just star...

My Origin Of The Paranormal by ethereal_friend

I wasn't sure where to begin and because I will be posting all my experiences on this website I wanted to make sort of like a "background" post explaining my most earliest experience so those that may have more insight can see what could be called the start of my paranormal experiences and those who...

I Thought They Were Just Trying To Scare Me 2 by Girlfriend85

After my first story I had been so freaked out I had my cousin come stay with me. I didn't feel comfortable being there alone during the weekends when my roommates were away. This one night she and I were in my room upstairs doing our nails and shooting the s***. As she was talking I heard someone...

I Thought They Were Just Trying To Scare Me by Girlfriend85

Back in 2005 I had rented out a room in a 2 story home. My 2 roommates were cousins from Palm Springs and they were often gone during the weekends because they would be in PS with their family. (The house was in San Diego). The night I moved in they came to my room to introduce themselves and we got...

Strange Growling Sound by Hokustar

I would like to share my gratitude to finding this sight. I enjoyed reading other peoples experiences and would like to share one of mine. I have to first share that growing up, I was not brought up with religion or spiritualism. I will say that now, I am spiritual as I have come into my own spir...

A Poltergeist That Hated Blondes by EmmalineTexas

My story started in 1982. My Dad had been in the military for 32 years and then had worked for NASA before he retired. Because of his military service, he and my Mom were eligible to travel anywhere in the world by military transport if there was available room and pay a nominal fee for any meals wh...

Time Slip One December Morning by EmmalineTexas

In my 20's I worked for NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. You know the place with the gigantic blimp hangars? Yep, that's the one. It was a great job with a rotten commute. It took about an hour to go under 25 miles to work. I'm the workaholic type personality so I left even ea...

Father Knows Best by MaggieMay_Not

In my first story, My Mother's Poodle, I was age eleven. This time I'll share one from my twelfth year. I grew up in Pittsburg, Ca. I have four brothers and no sisters. My father and mother were and are still together - 59 years strong. For fun, on weekends our entire family used to go for hikes up ...

Golden Gate Bridge Ghost by EmmalineTexas

This encounter happened about 1982. That's quite a while ago, but it's stuck in my memory as one of the first encounters I've had with a spirit. Luckily, they seem to appear as normal people to me, so at the time I'm not especially frightened. The place was under the north pier of the Golden Gate Br...

My Mom's Poodle by MaggieMay_Not

Although I have experienced paranormal events - great and small - all my life, I've never written them, or discussed them openly unless I felt compelled and safe to do so. People don't treat the topic lightly and some get very upset. If it meets the approval of the readers here I will share some of ...

Alcatraz Ghost Was A Leg Man by monkeynavigated

My husband and I were in Northern California visiting his brother. While there, we did manage to fit in some touristy things like visiting Chinatown, and walking among the Redwoods. I was also able to find time to be felt up by a ghost at Alcatraz. What follow is that story. The tour started beni...

Voice On A Toy Phone by VeronicaMarie

This happened when I was about five or six years old. My sister and I were in our bedroom one night, and I was playing with a toy phone. Just a little plastic thing. Might have even been my baby brother's. I said hello into the receiver and clearly heard a man's voice say hello back to me, right int...

Great Auntie June...soon, I Must Tell Them by ShySgaile

My Gramma was born youngest of 3 sisters in Maine 1914.

An older sister being so ill that her hair fell ...

Portal Or Wormhole... Or Haunting? by justmenoname

When my son was younger he always saw a lot of beings. He no longer does we had the pastor came to bless the house, along with a group of 4 others (and my son never knew the pastor came to bless the house, because he came when my son was in school. And we never mentioned it to him). During those few...

Three As One? Angel Of Death? by ShySgaile

I woke at perhaps 2am one night about 5 years ago, got up to get some water and returned to bed. I was sitting up, but there was a figure in our bedroom doorway. I thought one of our kids was coming in - perhaps not feeling well. But it was not one of our kids. The figure became clearer, and it ...

Old Man Of The Cave by valkricry

On a story of mine, Melda asked if my brothers were also sensitive to the paranormal. I allowed that my older brother, Kevin, had experienced a few events and that I might share them at some point. Kevin led a nomadic lifestyle. It wasn't that he was lazy, or couldn't hold down a job, the boy had a...

The Sepulveda Ghost by ABCNinja

It was Thanksgiving, as I rode home from my sister's house in San Fernando Valley. The streets at night in Los Angeles are normally pretty barren, but since it was a holiday weekend, I felt like I was peddling through a ghost town. I was twenty two at the time and sharing a one bedroom apartment in ...

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. ...

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...

Hollywood Forever by Ghoster2K

Friday, October 31, 2003 While I was in Los Angeles in October of 2003, beginning my celebrity grave hunting adventures at the famous Hollywood Forever Cemetery, I had a rather strange experience. As I was walking toward the Abbey Of The Psalms Mausoleum, a feeling of dread came over me. I could th...

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...

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...

Haunted Home/poltergeist Activity And It Followed Us by vala

This is all true. This is not a work of fiction. I wish it was because it was terrible to live through. I grew up in the Bay Area in California. The house I grew up in was built from the ground up by my father. No previous owners. My father is not a good man (he's done horrible things and is a cr...

This Never Happened To Me Before by Scorpio_Rising

I'm just going to start off at the time this happened. Earlier today around 12:00 pm, I had just put my son to a nap and was about to take one myself. I lay down and put YouTube on my phone because I'm afraid without it on I'll get sleep paralysis. I been having this problem for the past four months...

A Night Full Of Horror by littlebow320

This was a few months ago. It was a late night and me, my mom, and one of my sisters were all sitting in the living room. We were just gossiping and rambling about things here and there. We have two ceiling fans one in the living room and the other one was in the dining room and they were both on. A...

The Shadow Girl by littlebow320

This happened to me a couple of years ago while I was still in middle school. My sister the one I will be mentioning in the story was currently still in high school. When me and my family moved into our new house I had to share a room with my middle sister because the house only had three rooms and ...

Ode To Trees by Tweed

My husband has American roots. In 2013 we were staying with some of his friends in Los Angeles. This was the first time I'd ever been to this family's home, but I'd known them socially since 2009. My husband had been to their place many times and hadn't experienced anything odd. Their house is a ...

3 In 1 by svvar

As I was writing this I felt a little coincidentally spookily ooggolies. Not to veer off the actual story just a little observation. I've mentioned in my previous posts that I live in a cabin like home. A long drive way up, surrounded by trees, and you have to walk up a flight of wooden stairs to ge...

The Thing In The Hallway by DarkStar

I've been reading the posted stories on YGS for over a year now, so I've finally decided to post my first story about my very first experience. While it isn't exactly a spine-tingling tale of horror, there is definitely some spine-tingling in it, and the spine being tingled is mine... This incid...

Queen Mary Adventures by nora1112

I stayed on the Queen Mary in November 2012 in Room A 131 and the following happened: The TV in my room turned on by itself 3 separate times. I turned it off myself and checked to see that it was off and it would come back on when I was either in the bathroom or in bed. Also on my first night,...

Flying Underwear? by svvar

A bit over two years ago I first read about a serious succubus experience on a different website. I wondered if it was all fable or real in the spirit realm. I'm highly intrigued, binge reading on succubus and incubus for that week to come. At this time I started dating someone new. My relations...

F St. Victorian, Eureka, California by BeagleMom

When we were first married in 1966, we moved to Eureka for college. Our apartment was on the ground floor, (front 4 rooms) of a Victorian "mansion". I always called it a Victorian tract house because of there being a short row of them, all alike, on F street. The house was stately in its day, and wa...

Interweb Stories by svvar

Six years ago was when I first came across this site. I was pregnant and home a lot so I spend much time reading what seemed like every single story on here lol! Towards the end of my pregnancy and my sons first few months of life I wasn't online at all. I had moved into a new apartment with my husb...

Two Whaley House Ghosts by treehouse15

I'll add my experiences as well and let you all decide what to do with it. I've seen two apparitions at the Whaley House, and I've never been able to make heads or tails of what I saw. Although these stories happened some time ago, I've written them down before, so recall isn't an issue here. The...

I Believe Now by BiPoLaRuNiCoRn

Growing up I have always been told ghost stories from my dad. I chose not to believe them because it was stupid and fake. Or so I thought. He would tell me about all these experiences he had when he was little and my aunt and uncles all confirmed it. They all told me about this time my dad, aunt, bo...

My First by The_Puffin

Thinking back to my younger years I have always had a few events that happened shortly before I moved that never sat quite right with me. I was very young at the time, around the time I turned 8 or shortly before, so even when I told others they wrote it off as nothing more than an odd occurrence. ...

What Am I by callmeD

It's been awhile since I last visited this page. Let me start by asking what I am, or rather, who I am suppose to be. You see, the last year has been a year of self reflection. Needless to say the more I learned about myself, the more questions arise. For as long as I can remember, I've always be...

My Dad Returned! by BeagleMom

I have submitted this story years ago to the About.com's ghost story site. It seems to have gone defunct, so since I landed here, I have decided to share it with YGS crew! My Father was a remarkable carpenter and talented builder of custom homes. My husband and I bought a lot near Mom & Dads, as ...

The 7th Floor Ghost by Cersed240

I have worked security at a major hotel near the airport for 15 years now, and when I first got here I was told to watch out for a ghost on the 7th floor. I was told he likes to make his presence known at random times. Some of the older employees say it's one of the engineers (maintenance workers) w...

He Likes Junk Yard Wars by Cersed240

I have an experience that I would like to share, and I apologize if I ramble a little. I'm a firm believer in the paranormal, from various cryptids to spirits to ghosts. I also have a healthy dose of skepticism. My parents live in the historic town of Niles in Fremont, California. If you are a fa...

Was He An Angel? by trentinray

I am not sure what I believe in regarding paranormal activity and such, but I do have an open mind and like to do as much research as possible before making any firm decisions. This experience happened in November of 2010, a month after having my youngest. I had just had a procedure, to remove a kid...

Mother-in-law Talks To Ghosts by Always-Wondering

This situation centers on my mother-in-law, who happens to be Vietnamese. Although it doesn't directly affect me, I might have had an experience that's related to her. Just a brief background on my in-laws. My wife and her family came over from Vietnam in the early 90s. I'm not very close to my m...

Phantom Sounds In The Kitchen by Always-Wondering

This strange incident occurred recently in my current home. I have no way to explain it other than a phantom sound. It was the summer of 2016 and the house was fairly hot.
