Recent Paranormal Experiences

The Face In The Old Shed Window by DarkSoul94

My great maternal grandparents owned a 16 acre farmstead that they'd purchased back during the late 1920's to early 1930's. You reached it via old country road and the house and property itself was located smack dab in the center of a forested area. My great maternal grandmother passed away in '9...

Nursery Haunting by Lorenzo

I volunteered at a nursery for a period of 6 months before it closed. It was small and we only had 7 children. It was nice for my first week, but then it got creepy. The layout was the main hall, a small walkway to the kitchen and a closed off bit that lead to the storage room. It was used as a soci...

Of Sandalwood And The Ghost Month by Jubeele

Growing up in Southeast Asia, the seventh month of the Lunar calendar was a strange time of the year. Buddhists and Taoists believe that during this period, the King of Hell would release the ghosts or spirits in his domain to wander the mortal world, seeking food and entertainment. People were told...

Dollar Shop Ghost Pt. 2 by DarkSoul94

It's been awhile since the first part of this story and to start off I can say that I'm still working at the same store although occurrences have slowed down quite considerably during the last few years. A lot of stuff has happened since the first part. A lot of employees have come and gone and m...

Experiences In The Leamington Spa Area by JonLS87

When I was about 17 I was living with my foster family. My Foster Dad had gone to Russia, so his daughter, Trish, was looking after my foster siblings and his children. Someone came up with the idea that we would go camping, so we ended up driving to somewhere near a village called Tysoe. I have...

Care Home Ghosts by JonLS87

I work in Care Homes, and these stories relate to the first care home I ever worked in, as well as some after. When I first started working in care, I worked in what looking back was the worst care home ever known to man. As freaky as it was, the residents were lovely. That being said, it wa...

Littlecote House Experience by JonLS87

I must have been around 5/6 when my parents took my sister and I to a "Teddy Bears Picnic" at Littlecote House. I remember it being very special because my Mum let me take my yellow teddy that my Nanny bought me the day I was born and that NEVER was allowed off her bed. I don't remember much abo...

It Wasn't A Dream by Maverick_30

Hey everyone, I've been floating around this site reading stories for a long time now and finally built the courage up to send in my own. For a bit of background info, back in 2011 I had a small 2bdrm unit in Adelaide. I had a friend who was in need of a room and I had a spare room so he moved in...

Charlotte by BraelynnMarie

I promise this was a real paranormal experience, none of this is fake! Well, a few months ago I was laying in my bed and all the lights were off and it was about eleven am. I had a feeling someone was watching me so I sat up and saw a little girl at the end of my bed. She was surrounded by a white ...

The Walker Ames House by divinemsjunebug

I've been a paranormal investigator since 2005. I started this because I've always been fascinated by the paranormal not because I had any experiences (that I can remember) as a child. So I was a bit skeptical of most people claiming to have ghostly encounters, although I do have a very open mind. ...

Still A Haunted Place by meinmein

The stories I published happened in our former house. This is the latest when we moved in a new apartment in 2014. At first when we were still moving our things, my older sister is the one who first stayed at the apartment. She said she didn't know why she was scared but she feels something is w...

My Closest Encounter by meinmein

The private school who is renting beside us moved, and our relatives (grandmother, aunts and uncles) moved there. It's been 6 years since they moved. My mother told me to call her if someone is buying at the shop because she will cook. Our kitchen is separated at the left corner of the garage. Th...

Red Sighting by meinmein

I always see ghosts in our former house. Sometimes they just walk across, sometimes just stand somewhere. I remember, I'm always scared and can't sleep with lights out or without someone beside me. I also don't know why I had to see them. I wanted to know what they want. Are they souls? Or just bad ...

Our Former House Was Haunted by meinmein

Our old house was big and it is owned by the mother of my aunt's husband. Since it is big, our aunt invited us to live there so my parents decided to leave the condo and moved there. It is divided into 2 floors. Ours is below. The garage beside it is wide that can be parked with at least 8 cars. T...

The Last Visit To Say Farewell by meinmein

My mother told me her experiences, which is the last visits and messages of our relatives who just passed on.

Loch Doon Camping Experience by Aliendewd

This was a recent event. On Wednesday 16th September 2020 I decided to head off for a night of wild camping in the Galloway Forest Park in South West Scotland. It's a beautiful area and one of the few 'dark skies' areas in the country. On clear nights the views above are really quite spectacular, yo...

To The Little Girl At Bonnie Springs, I'm Sorry by Cman710

TRIGGER WARNING: Violent child death. This - is probably the most disturbing story I've ever shared in my entire life. I don't know where to begin so I'll just start at the beginning. Bonnie Springs operated here in Vegas until early this year. And it was notoriously haunted. The past two year...

The White Lady Of Burger King by Cman710

It's been a while. For a while things had calmed down in my life with the supernatural, but as of the last couple of years all kinds of bizarre events are happening.

Don't Let It In by SammyToucan-

This is a paranormal experience of my Mums its told in her own words and from her perspective.

Here's some more ghost stories about my Dads childhood house. He's had multiple things happen so I'll put each little story together here, told from my Dad's perspective. These all occurred in the same house at different times growing up. My brother's and I were bored one day so we decided to set...

My Cousin Attended Her Own Funeral by Oceana

The funeral of my cousin was really strange... Especially when I saw her standing in the corner of the church. The church was full of family and we just sat listening to the service and to others saying their goodbyes. It was nothing extravagant, but it was nice. I get distracted really easily b...

Mystifying Morning by Melda

I had a rather strange, almost eerie, experience during January/February this year. I'm hoping that somebody can provide me with a logical explanation because try as I might, I don't seem to be able to come up with one. I go through phases of insomnia, quite regularly, and by approximately 03:45 on...

Experience Explanation by WispO

I have just registered after reading a lot of the stories here as I have lately begun to be interested in the afterlife as it is.

My Little Bighorn Battlefield Experience by alicerp

I visited Montana for the first time in June of 2004. I would later move there from my home state of CT and live in both Eastern and Western parts of the state for 9 years. My friend picked me up from the Billings airport and suggested that we see the battlefield. He was a bit of a history buff. W...

The Good Demon by Spoopy328

Now I'm only calling this a Demon because it looked pretty scary. In truth I have no idea what this could have been, but I mentioned it briefly in a previous story. This is a more detailed account. When me and my family lived at number 11 we all were aware of the spirits residing there and the s...

My Sister's Haunting Part 2 by Nikachi

That thing (a lady as per my sister) had threatened her...

Laughs Echoing Through The Night by crazyface08

My experience started 2 years ago when I visited my home town in Bangladesh.

The Ghostly Touches In The Dark Room by FarEndofSpectrum

This is something that happened to both me and my sister. I am sharing this with my sister's expressed permission.

My Parents Don't Believe Me When I Say This Place Is Haunted by Crystal_Tears

About 6 years ago my family moved into this house. At that time, nothing bad happened. No paranormal stuff, nothing out of the ordinary. So I'll skip to the part all the fun (somewhat scary) stuff happened. Around 4 years ago, I kept loosing my (small) stuffed animals, and small collectables stored ...

The Victorian Home Part 4 by Jb66

I'm back once again with another story in my house, this time it's a much more creepy story, and I'm pretty concerned just thinking about it.

Just A Regular Dog Walk by AngieJo

Dark Shadow In The Hall And Cat's Reaction by 8-bitDemigod

We've only had my cat, Luna, for about six months now ever since we found her as a kitten in the backyard. Due to the general erratic cat behavior and the adolescent need to act the fool it's difficult to tell if she notices anything out of the ordinary around the house. That is until this morning. ...

Patio Door Locked And Lights Turned On by jonesma11

On a late summer Sunday afternoon I was dog sitting my daughter and son-in-laws 5 month old puppy so they could have dinner out with friends.

The Nun Chased Me Away by thething45

Hey everyone. I would like to state that after reading other posts from folks on this site that I will NEVER AGAIN try to use a Ouija board ever again.

Annoyed Silhouette In The Kitchen by Zaruje

This story is just a small experience of mine that happened in the early morning of August 29, 2020.
