Recent Paranormal Experiences

My Last Encounters With The Dark Shadow by TheSweetDevil23

2011: Fatehabad Road: Agra: UP, India My third and last incident! Right or maybe I was wrong! After few harrowing experiences with the "Paranormal", I was tired by this time. I thought my internship time in Agra would be amazing. I would be away from that spooky hostel of mine. No! But I wouldn't g...

Touches And Things Happening Around Me by baguettewithaconscious

I have some concerns about some encounters I've had, so I'm posting here to maybe get suggestions? Let me tell you a little about me. I am a recently turned 16, but have been having things happen to me since I was about 5. I was raised religious, but I'm not all that religious anymore. When I was...

Experimenting With Ouija Boards by occulting_

So, I have been making DIY Ouija boards for the past few years, to see if they do work and what would happen pretty much. A recent experience I had was a spirit that was passing by and I was trying to see if I could get them to talk through the ouija board I had brought recently and the spirit i...

Ghost Mimic Voices by Vewilliams

Early in the year I woke to my son saying MOM in a urgent tone. His room is far enough away so I can only hear if he is inside or by my door. When I got up to see what was wrong, he wasn't there. Checked his room and he was asleep. Mentioned this to my boyfriend ans he just laughed about it and thou...

My Scary Relationship With Agra City by TheSweetDevil23

In July'2011, I had to move to Agra in Uttar Pradesh for my semester internship for five months. After going through some unnerving incidents in the previous year, which I already mentioned in my previous story, I had moved on. It started with this one small incident in the hotel itself where I ...

Faceless With Stripe Dress by ssexyca

This will be a quick and bizarre one. For better imagination of the situation, think of a rectangle, the living room is located at the West end while the extended outside kitchen is located on the East end of the house. One night last year, my family and I decided to karaoke after dinner. I reme...

Spooky Incidences In My College by TheSweetDevil23

I had never been one of those people who believed in ghosts and spirits. I remain a skeptic. But I will be impartial that whatever weird and creepy incidences had happened with me, they were indeed precise. For all one knows my imagination merely encouraged the invisible entity which was around me a...

3 Horned Bull Headed Man With Horse Legs by SleepDemons

I have always felt the presence of spirits, they often come to me as a dream like vision while I'm awake but almost asleep. In my youth I got flashes of scary gory horrifying imagery then I would feel a presence. I learned to communicate with mental imagery and found if I allowed the spirits to pass...

Activities In My Apartment by GhoulofTheWorld

This is the 1st time I'm sharing my story here. Someone helped me find this site and after some contemplation, I have decided to type this story here. The 2 incidents that I'm going to share took place some time ago now. I also have to let you know that I'm not the biggest believer of paranormal stu...

Objects That Move, Disappear And Reappear by Chadwik

It was 11:00PM and I was home alone. A grown man, who has had several paranormal encounters, I don't scare easy. It's a normal occurrence for household items to disappear and later reappear. It's also normal for lights to flicker around me, regardless of where I go. I'm living in a home wher...

The Cursed Farmhouse by dontbeme

This anecdote is more of a precautionary anecdote as to always check and do your research on new places, no matter how beautiful and grand they are and how excited you are. Some histories are dark and they haunt the place irrespective of the people that come and go. The evil is sometimes just evil a...

That Time I Was Low-key Possessed by AugustaM

Life has been hectic enough over the last few months to have kept me away from the YGS community for far too long - but, as it usually does, an experience has occurred and sent me running back to you! I'm not exactly certain what category this experience should be slotted into as it's a little bit s...

Strange Goings On In Health Care by Skade

When I was younger, I got Pleuritis or lung sack inflammation one Christmas. It hurt so bad I had to be admitted to hospital. I remember how they were hymn singing on TV and I sat in my hospital bed, because it hurt lying down, and I watched through the curtain less window as large white snowfla...

Harbinger Of Death by _Little-Miss-Skinny_

The "Black Lady". Others call it the Lady in Black. I only saw it once. But for me though, that one time was enough for me to know that this entity (the black lady) is the "harbinger of impending death". I was a 5th grader in QESchool at that time, year 2008. We always change classrooms in eve...

Man Of The House by Namara

I'm not sure if this is a love story or a ghost story. I have always been clairvoyant and have experienced odd things but nothing like this, and I haven't experienced it again. I was in the fifth grade and my family moved to a ranch home in Gainesville built after the World War by a couple who had...

A Night Visit From My Father After His Death by RalphHyde

My father had lived with my wife and me for several years before his death and we had enjoyed his travels with us to the old farm where I grew up as we now lived in the city. A year or so after his death I had a visit from him in my mind which although 20 years ago is as fresh and clear as if it h...

The Riverside Ghost by gingerbug

I live in a small town and a river runs through it. There is a trail leading along the river from our district to the more central parts and that particular path is not frequently used because it is overgrown, overflows with water frequently and is therefore, constantly muddy. It is also quite...

Mouse Apparition Pushing A Protective Shield by CantunSEEit

This story is from our current home that we purchased September 2020. This home was built in the early 1990s; it's partially remodeled. It has newer fake wood floors that look good, but they SNAP and CRACK all the time, day and night because they were installed improperly. The first couple of weeks ...

A Figure On The Toilet by InTheNight

I still live at my childhood home with my parents, my both younger brothers, and our old dog. Just last night, I was coming downstairs to get water sometime around or after 2 AM. Our bathroom is right to the left from the stairwell's door, and the doorway to the kitchen is right between them. The...

Maasthi In The Forest by KaushikBhandary

I am from Mangalore, a small city in the southern state of Karnataka. Most of the outskirts of the city is covered with farms and dense forests of the Western ghats. This incident happened to my grandfather when he was in his 20's. One day after attending a religious event called as "bhoota kola...

Goodbye To A Princess by Jubeele

We have known our neighbours, Dean and Miriam, for over fifteen years. A loving couple in their seventies, they had been together for close to fifty years. Miriam was everybody's sweetheart. A Princess, beautiful, generous and caring. Then came the heartrending news that Miriam had late-stage pa...

The House On The Corner by Rosama45

My sister and I went to walk our little dog around the block. There are 6 houses on our side of the street, ours being the second one from the corner of Maclay and Gladstone. We exited our home and as we walked up the driveway (there is an incline out our front door to the sidewalk), I turned to my ...

Numerous Happenings by ScareTale

This is just a compilation of small things either I or family have experienced. I've decided to do this because, even though they are individual incidents, they are too small or I just don't have enough info to write into a story and still meet the minimum character limit. Each paragraph is its own ...

Gliding White Entity by ScareTale

This one happened one night in 2010. Me, my mom and older brother (who had recently moved back in because his girlfriend kicked him out) were sitting in the living room. I believe it was somewhere between 10:00/10:30. We had one of the windows open because it was early autumn and the air outside ...

Angel Lady In White Light by Chaningham91

Following on from my first story about my son being in hospital with leukemia, I would like to share the paranormal experience I had once we were discharged and allowed home. Obviously, I was going through a really tough time. I felt alone, depressed, and terrified for my son's health. One week a...

Ears Ringing And Seatbelt Malfunction? by MrsRamsay

I admit the two things in the title don't really go together, though they happened within a day of each other. This morning I left early to go to the doctor. Traffic was good at just before 7am, and as I passed the commercial node in my neighborhood, driving my five year old Toyota Mom van with ...

A Dark Entity by ScareTale

The story is purely a second hand account. It happened to my older sister in 2011 while she was home alone. I know it being the events as she tells them and not my own personal experience, one can question it's validity even more so. But my sister isn't the type to tell ghost stories and the way ...

Witch's Cackle? by ScareTale

As I stated in my first story "Voice On Tape", I was going to ask my mom if I could share some of her stories. I asked and she agreed. This happened to my mom and half sister before I was born. First off, in order to understand just how horrifying this was, I'll have to give a little detail of th...

The Radio by ScareTale

I was 17 and sitting alone in the living room watching Tv. It was about 11:30 at night. Everyone else had already gone to bed. I've always been a night owl, so it wasn't uncommon for me. I had a habit of sitting in the living room with the Tv on while I played my PlayStation Portable. Nothing out of...

Alone With A Poltergeist by ScareTale

This experience[s] happened to me when I was at home by myself. My parents and siblings had gone out of town for the day to visit family and to check on our second property that's about 2 hours away from our home. They wouldn't be back until about 11:00 that night. I was 16, home alone on a Friday n...

Voice On Tape by ScareTale

When I was about 8 years old, my mother had bought one of those tape voice recorders, (this was in 2000 so younger people may not know that voice recorders required cassette tapes as there weren't really digital ones on market). It was around maybe 7:30 at night, me, my big sister, mom and my two yo...

Possible Ghost Of My Cat Widget That Passed Away by Lilcat21310

Hey guys, I feel the need to share this story so I'll give you details about Widget before I start. She was a really old cat that my mother got around a year before she found out she pregnant with me. She was a all black cat that we sadly had to put down at age 20 around a year ago (my sister and I ...

Someone Was Sitting In That Chair by BiancaB

I have written previously about the house I grew up in, and it being a house that seemed to draw a lot of paranormal activity. This event happened to me when I was 15, at a time when I was quite open to what was happening in the house. I have changed names, but used them to make the story easier to ...

Haunted Children's Ward by Chaningham91

My name is Chantelle, I'm 29 years old & this is my story! 3 years ago, my 2 year old son was diagnosed with leukemia & so we had to stay in hospital on a children's cancer ward as expected for a few weeks. It's an old, eerie ward with the hospital dating back from 1876 & is very quiet & cree...

Wandering Orb Then Wife's Bad Dream 2016 by CantunSEEit

We moved to Idaho from Hawaii and ultimately moved into an older 3rd floor apartment (2 BR, 1 BA) It had a great view of a creek and a river beyond that out the back windows. We were out looking, and found an amazing view lot across town, which we ended up purchasing. We were very happy and looking ...

Ww2 Mortuary by Breaghboo

My sister, who is older than me, has lived in East Anglia for many years. We are estranged so I will give no clue as to her specific location or identity. When she first married, she lived very rurally with her two young children and her dog, a Golden Retriever. Her husband worked abroad a lot. T...

Whispers And Jingles by KittenscanFly2

Here are three paranormal experiences that I have experienced in the past year. One day while my little cousins were at my house, we went into the backyard to play. I was enjoying the fall colors when I heard a whisper. It either said, "I'm here", "Over here", or "Over where?" It was a man's voi...

Lady On The Bus by ButterflyChaser

I'm not sure this counts as a ghost story but I believe it is paranormal, and if not paranormal, it was a strange coincidence that makes me shiver. I was riding the bus, I believe the 64, which tends to be a busy route (at least pre-pandemic times). This was around 2019. What I remember was there...

My Mom Let Me Know! by Piperasc

So my mom passed last year. A quick back story, my mom and I were never super close until about 4 years ago. She moved to Georgia the summer of 2018 and I moved to Florida in September the same year (3 hours away). My husband and I were able to visit several times. She passed May 5, 2020 during C...

Strange Man In White Suit by Kfergie

I was at work on the 11th of May 2021. It was 8:30am and I looked from the corner of my eye and there was a man in a white suit staring at me, so I turned but no one was there. I thought I was seeing things but earlier today on the 20th of May, around 10:45am, I looked out my kitchen window and ...
