Recent Paranormal Experiences

Great-grandma Visiting Toddler At Night? by NorthCoastie19

This isn't a very "exiting" story, but nonetheless has my wife and I a little freaked out at the moment, and I thought was worth sharing. Back in April of this year (2019), my wife's grandmother passed away on our daughter's 2nd birthday. Our daughter had met her great-grandmother only a handful...

White Eye Entity by Jaiseeta31

It's crazy just think about the whole experience. In 2017, I was in the bathroom soaking up in a nice spiritual bath I found that is suppose to clean my aura. I got a pound of baking soda, sea salt, and sprinkle some basil into my water. I live in my grandparents house and I would experience a lo...

Mysterious Sound by devilhorns1432

When I was around 15 or 16 y/o, I witnessed something very unusual and strange which I still have no idea about and can only relate it with the paranormal. This never really spooked me out at first but now remembering it, is enough to send shivers down my spine. To begin with the story, I cannot ...

The Previous Tenant Saved Me? by Rikke

In my previous post I stated that I do have a history of mental illness. I have still not had any symptoms the past 6-7 years or so and I have been off medication for around 5 of them. Just to get that cleared up. 😊 I was in a quite abusive relationship at the time and I will need to mention o...

Runs Back And Forth On Roof Between 2am - 5am by ManInBlue

I was recently was recalling things from my past whem an strange event came flooding back. First of all, forgive my writing as I was never good at it.

Animal Guardians by Templar1179

Shorty I was on duty as a security officer for a financial call center when I noticed a cat that was killed and was laying in the front yard of the property. He appeared to have been hit by a car. After laying him to rest (and a good half hour of bawling my eyes out), I was inside a vacant off...

Military Ghost Story by BaptizedInFire34

My name is Mike. I'm a US Army veteran and this is a true story of events which occurred during my time stationed in Hawaii. I am writing it to the best of my memory of the occurrences. The exact address and community name have been omitted as it is not my intention to negatively impact the housing ...

Creepy Afternoon by leenji05

Way back when I was still in high school we used to spend our holidays in our province in Pangasinan. Since all of the rooms in my grandparents' house are already occupied, we then stayed at my uncle's house wherein no one is residing because my uncle and his family are in London. I can still rem...

The Old Farmhouse by Suzy2

This story takes place in a very old farm house where my best friend, Sassy, grew up. The house is still in her family but no one lives there full time. This house is on an old dirt road with an old red barn and sometimes a few of us will go out there for a bonfire or cookout. I had my son's graduat...

They reside in Uppal, Hyderabad. They used to live in their ancestral house, which may be some 20-30 years old. It ...

Ghosts Come & Go by JuggaloJohn

This is my 2nd posting. This is a common thing in the house and has taken place more often than not. Sitting in the living room, out of the peripheral of my eyes, I often see shadow figures that walk towards the front door of the house from the rear of the house. Also, they come in from the front do...

The Wind Spoke by Awoken

First, I guess I want to draw attention to the fact that, like so many here, my life seems to have been peppered with the sort of nexus of strange events and experiences that are regarded as outside the "norm." I actually have a theory about that, but I suppose that can wait. Second, I don't beli...

Seeing My First Ghost/bonus Story by Moonlitpath

This happened to me when I was in middle school. I used to be scared of the paranormal/unknown so I never really dove into it when I was younger because it would keep me up at night. I remember being scared to shower with the door closed if nobody was home. This day I was home alone. I turned on...

Stairway Chills by Joshseesghosts

Hope everyone is well, thanks for taking the time to read. This story is a strange one. To start off I am 22 years old and live in a small village called Fradley. Now here's a couple of things. Fradley was an Air Force base during WW2 and many people died around here. For instance, there is a st...

Guarded By My Hero In A Green Beret by MrsRamsay

Of all the strange coincidences and things that have happened in relation to the loss of many loved ones over the years, the one that intrigues me the most is something that started in 1969 but that I never realized until just recently -- the repeated appearance of a strange man, dressed as a United...

Our New Scary House Part 2 by Cherubim

As time went on I realized we were living in a haunted house. It started becoming more than items being moved around from one room to another, or things disappearing and reappearing again. Now whatever was in the house became focused on my jewelry box. I would open it to get a necklace I have hangin...

I Saw A Witch And A Goat Man by Fishallmighty

One night me and a couple of my mates went fishing. We would always go stoned so it kind of makes the story a little discredited, but I know I saw what I saw. This story is 100% real. Anyway after we tried and fail at a few spots we thought to try out a local pier. Once we got there we proceeded ...

Shadow Of The Living? by Londonuser

This is a bit if a strange one, I have been looking for answers but keep reading about unknown or shadows of the dead.

Living With A Ghost by Ittsjamezzz

My First Time by jabond99

I would like to start this by describing myself first. I think it is important to have some sense of the person relating a story so that the reader may know some point of reference from which it is being told. I am an engineer, and I am told that I have a very logic driven mind. Although I imagine m...

The Little Girl In The Garden by Lallie

When I was about twelve years old, we had been living in the same house for about three years. This is also where I had my first direct experience.

The Tall Looming Shadow Person by Madness

This is my first story about my spiritual encounters. I have many more but this is more recent to my life as an empath. As a spiritual empath, I can sense a bad energy within someone, around someone or any sort of spirits without them even knowing about them. For over a year now, not every nig...

23 Minutes Flatline And I Hear Her Voice by MaggieMay_Not

I am typing this at 6:58 PM October 5, 2019. This is a real time, evolving event. I will try to be coherent and cohesive, but realize I am not in the best head space at the moment. My mother-in-law has had several strokes that put her daily care beyond our scope. She resides at a skilled nursing ...

The Story Of My Brother As Told By My Mother by Faith_2000

Where Time Stood Still by Dar77

Let me begin by giving you a picturesque vision of the house where it seemed as though time had stood still. The year was 2005, and we had found a very charming older house in the historic part of downtown Pocatello, Idaho. I was really drawn to this place because of it's 1940's - 1950's feel. I...

Never Had A Chance To Say Sorry by Eerie69

About a month after...
