Recent Paranormal Experiences

Little Girl's Voice Comforting Me by Gh0st_Knight

Around April 2017 I was dating a girl, let's call her Saya. Saya and I had a special relationship, we instantly clicked and became very close, however she was depressed and got ill regularly, maybe because of her anaemia or her cancer that we'd later find out. She always said she had a sixth sense a...

Witching Hour by Filmbuff1234

In my story where I encountered a Poltergeist, I spoke about a before and after-school club - how I encountered a lot there. This really sticks out in my head because I still can't even begin to understand what happened to this day. Outside of the before and after-school club is a church and grav...

My Dad's Childhood Home by Filmbuff1234

My dad's old house when he was young was seriously haunted. My auntie discovered recently it was built on an ancient burial ground (anyone seen Poltergeist) and everyone experienced something freaky. My Grandad is a sceptic by the way. He thinks ghostly stuff is made up and he for some reason di...

Communicated With A Poltergeist by Filmbuff1234

I've always had a fascination with ghosts. Why they're here. Why they won't move on. Whether they exist. I have visited several haunted locations in Britain including Dover Castle (where I saw my first ghost which I will speak about some other time) and Tower of London (no contact). I have also been...

The Mexican Shining by Filmbuff1234

I come from the UK but this story was when I was on holiday in Cancun, Mexico. This encounter was actually why I came across this site because I was looking into Mexican spirits. I have previously done stories about a haunted house I live in and a haunted school. I decided I was going to write a...

School's Hell by Filmbuff1234

My old Primary school was definitely haunted. There were rumours it was built on a burial ground - but I am unable to confirm that is true. However, some very strange events happened there. Now if I wasn't here to witness what happened - I wouldn't believe this story - so I don't blame you if yo...

An Unpleasant Haunting by Filmbuff1234

I like to think I'm quite open to the supernatural. I have experienced more spirits than most people my age and I have always been open to the unknown. I attribute it to my house. I moved in there at the age of 6 (roughly). I encountered things that might seem tame compared to other stories - bu...

Haunted Townhouses At Lacey by Don-H

When I left the Army, I tried to make a go of it in the state I got out in (Washington) but I soon realized that this was a mistake. This was a very expensive place to live in and the only property I could afford to rent that would allow me to keep my dog was in the town of Lacey (effectively a sub...

Dream Home Nightmare by oraclemache

A few years ago my ex husband and I moved our new little family into a cute 3 bedroom little house. It was painted blue, and therefore has since been called the blue house. The 1st week there we were in our living room watching television, when a massive shadow went up the wall behind us, onto the c...

Was She Rimmi's Mother? by Pratyusha

The Friendly Old Lady by The_Morrighan

I've been reading all your stories for a long time so thank you for sharing your experiences. Here's one of mine, short but interesting I hope: I was on holiday from University and visiting my Uncle's farm in Lancashire in the UK. Bare in mind that it is next to a very small rural village wher...

Fairy Lights by valkricry

As most of you who have read my submissions know, I've had a lot of experiences with the paranormal. I'm not saying that as a form of bragging or to impress, it's just a statement of fact. However, until recently, I thought I had not encountered the most commonly claimed; that of seeing orbs. Not in...

Kid In The Hall by sherm784

As I always like to do when I'm stuck in a boring meeting at work, I looked across the courtyard windows to watch what the people in other offices are doing for work and what their setups look like compared to ours. It's a little bit voyeuristic, but passes the time. The other day I noticed one ...

Who Tickled Me? by Veragon

Last year 2018 at night, I was sleeping when suddenly I felt someone tickling my foot. It felt like a real thing tickling my right foot. In detailed it felt like a hand's fingers doing that (usually how it's being done). My foot was being tickled more than 2 or 3 times I guess. Unfortunately I could...

The Invisible Fiend by NitroFuel765

Before I start with the story, I just want to say that until this incident, I was a sceptic just like the rest of my family.

The Hanging Child Behind The Door by Mikachu

An Unexpected Night At A Haunted Inn In Northamptonshire by Poppinjay30

This is the tale as relayed to me by my father. He swears it's entirely true, and has talked about it much over the years. My grandfather has backed up the elements of the story known to him.

Night Security by Marine1

I am a member of this site since 2013 and have published a few of my experiences. I went by the name Marine. Over the years, my job took a big chunk of my time and although I love this site, this was relegated to the sideline. I have completely forgotten my credentials so I created a new one. Her...

Bringing Him Home by notjustme

YGS... It sure has been a minute for me, mostly been doing the reading and not much to share until now. To my old friends, surely you remember my late ex boyfriend (Derek) who passed but continues to watch over me and communicate with me through dreams. He always seems to show up when major changes ...

Intuition by Davida68

Two months back, on a Sunday I was with my friends at the beach. When I was there, I suddenly felt the need to go to the cemetery at Les Salines. I did not bother about it and continued my day. At night near one a.m., I woke up and that thought came back for no reason. Due to my inquisitive natur...

Something At The Nursing Home by 8-bitDemigod

I used to work 3rd shift at a small 44 bed nursing home. We were supposed to be an assisted living facility for people who were cognizant yet unable to live on their own and a rehabilitation center for those recovering from surgery or stroke. In reality we were mainly taking care of elderly resident...

Spirit Guardian To Teen by chey558

I grew up in Coushatta. I was around 12 or 13 when I first sensed the presence of a small girl. I told my brother about her and he told me that he had seen an apparition that looked like what I described. I never saw her but she stayed with me the entire time I lived in this house. I do not believe ...

My Friend's Message? by Mel-D72

This just happened to me last night. (3/25/19) I thought it strange and wanted to share to get your impressions. (I'll explain my thinking at the end.) A little over 40 years ago, I met a little girl on the playground at school. We were both 8 years old. She was new to the school and I was one of ...

The Opened Door by LoneG

I went to spend my vacation in my aunt's house. The story begins when me and my cousin went out to play golf and returned back home. It was very windy outside and we both were tired.

Spirited Workplace by Tbeartuff

I apologise that it has been so long between my posting to this site, but for privacy and confidentiality reasons I was unable to submit this until after I ended my previous employment. I also apologise as this is a series of short anecdotal accounts, and may be a bit of a marathon to read. These ac...

Creature In My Hotel Room by Junglecat

This story happens exactly one week after my first story which I posted this morning. It may be connected because it contains a similar creature as the second creature that I encountered in Dad's house on the day that I left. But as I reported in the previous story, it was difficult to identify more...

Christmas At Dad's by Junglecat

My dad is 80 years old. He doesn't live in his house, but instead lives with his girlfriend in a one story house approximately 3 miles from his.

The idea of doing that terrified me ...

Little Boy In My Room by erika131

This happened when I was around 13 years old. I was suddenly awoken from a nap at around 8pm And when I say "suddenly" I mean I jolted up from my sleep for no particular reason.
