Dark Vail During A Funeral by blosomes

My friend's uncle passed away few weeks ago. I went back to Brazil for his funeral since he was one of the helpers who introduced me to my grandmother's tribe.

The Senior Nursing Facility by Linjahaha

This particular incident happened within the last year, and it just occurred to me to post it. I worked for eighteen years as a Medic.

Thinning The Veil by Kksharp71

My Dad was an independent owner operator for 41 years. He, I and his Mom, my Grandma Vada were very close. So close, in fact, we knew what the other was thinking without even asking.

A Traffic Controller's Ghost Story Part 2 by AussieRedDog

I'll wait...oh, you're back, that was quick...now, for the second part (sort of). I'm still doing traffic controlling, did some major jobs by just standing there w...

Playful Resident by nesty_khuletz

I am now an employee of a milling company somewhere in C5, Quezon City near Bagumbayan.

Disturbing Audio Evidence by AnonMirrorBoard

I'd like to start off by saying that I am a fan of this website. Seeing there was a recent update in the town I grew up in, I had to dive in.

The Old Maternity Hospital by Linjahaha

This particular account took place in the mid to late 1970's. I was still a relatively newlywed to my first husband, Bill. Bill worked on and off, but 'mostly' off. Therefore, I 'had' to work.

Our Haunted First Apartment by Linjahaha

Way back in 1972 I was a newlywed to my first husband; Bill, the bum (Feel the love here).

Attention Needed - Strange Chanting by blosomes

I was in my home at Hokkaido, Japan. I might have said in my previous post that the land where my house is might be haunted. I mean maybe it might have been an important place for the Ainu.

A Life Saved By My Mother - 3 Years After Passing by Pegasus593

I just recently came across this website and I love it. I've always believed in the paranormal (I think it's because my mother was so fascinated by paranormal and true crime). I wouldn't call myself a psychic, but I have had dreams that have come true and 'gut feelings' that were correct. This is...

A Sighting Of Some Sort Of Carcass Eating Entity by FarEndofSpectrum

It's been a while since I last submitted here. This is something that I came across fairly recently, so I thought might as well come back with this.

The Old Parma Train Station Secretary by Linjahaha

This event didn't happen to me, but to my late husband, John, back when he was 15 years old, and I have no reason to doubt the validity of his account.

Back To Where I Am by blosomes

I was back in São Paulo during this summer. Too much had happened and too busy to even relax in my own house. How glad to be back where I had spent most of my life time. Good and bad memories and most of the time a little bitter sweet. I woke up one morning in my own bed. Henrique was at the wi...

Too Cold For Comfort by flyboy72

Recently I placed a trail camera in my backyard to capture the deer feeding at night as well as to see what other animals may be around.
