Carol And The Man With The Top Hat - My Daughter's Ghosts by Aros

It all began when my daughter was around 2 or 3. I had put her in her crib for a nap and told her I wasn't going to turn on the ceiling fan because it wasn't that warm in the room. The only way you can activate the fan is to pull the chain from the fan itself which is above most adult's heads, or th...

Scary Walk Through Forest/valley In Guam by wrh1969

I Saw It Again! by Piperasc

So as I told in my last encounter "My husband's Doppelganger?" I had seen what I only know as to be an entity that looked like my husband sitting on the side of the bed in his pajamas he wore that night to bed while my husband laid sleeping. I am still not sure what it is. However 3 nights ag...

Little Kid Ghost? by wrh1969

The Twin Sister by Piscesian

Over the years, I experienced several encounters with entities who are not from this realm where we are living in.

Heard My Grandpa Again! by Vrinda

I've been a huge fan of YGS over these years and decided to share my experiences one by one. I have had many experiences since I get visions, I can see and feel stuff. So this might be worth noting down right now. So this story isn't particularly a haunting one, but definitely gave me the chil...

I Miss My Father Dearly: by CrimsonTopaz

The House On Bradley Drive by Dontes0817

I was entering the sixth grade when my mother, our two dogs and I moved to Montgomery, Alabama after going through a particularly brutal divorce from her 3rd husband.

As usual, I just got home from working a 12-hour night shift. It's around 6:30 a.m. And my wife is just about to leave for work. We chat and she heads out the door.

This is my first ever encounter with the paranormal and I don't know what anything means. Last night, I was the only one still awake. I live with my family, everyone was asleep. I did my last tasks and went to bed. I lie down on my right side, tucked fully under my blanket. I wanted to try so...

Could She Be Me? by LightMight

I Just Saw A Full Apparition Ghost! by Aros

This morning I was walking upstairs and when I got to the top of the stairs I looked straight ahead and saw what I thought was my 15-year-old daughter walking into the bathroom.

Why I Refuse To Sleep In The Basement by LonerGirl

My basement has always given me a feeling of fright, so sleeping down there was never an option for me until there was no other option. For context, I always felt watched when down there, and there was always an intense feeling of not being alone despite knowing no one else was with you. Well, t...

Personal Experiences And Ability Issues by Obsidianblade

First, I'd like to say thank you for reading, second this story will contain multiple experiences over the course of my life. I'm an empath it's a gift a few on my mother's side have as well. Even as a child I could feel and take on others emotions. The earliest I guess paranormal event was when I...

Wth Case Files by valkricry

I think everyone has experienced that odd happening of weirdness that leaves you scratching your head and wondering. Sometimes it's a one off 'you blinked' experience, sometimes it goes on for several days or weeks, always evading any logical explanation, but yet not quite 'ghost story' material. ...

Hunchback Ghost (s) by Markle

My first experience occurred about 3 years ago, when I was 24. I was working at a facility for mentally disabled individuals where one of the residents had previously died. The people who worked the overnight shifts at my job used to tell stories about seeing the resident's ghost. I personally did n...

Possible Non Human Intelligence Contact In 1997-ghostly Hand Squeezes Mine As A Child Part 2 by Aros

Forgive the long story as I am going to use it as a sort of "Catch All" for several experiences that tend to be related.

Baby Boy Stay On My Mind by spookyONE69

With the situation that we are facing right now, social distancing and gatherings are not allowed. A lot of things changed. Specially when you are working onsite, meetings are no longer allowed. It's a bit hard though, but somehow I find it much better. I have to say I am working from home. Luc...

Floor Squeaker #1 by CantunSEEit

I had my first floor squeaker encounter early one morning, sitting on my living room couch while I was recovering from back surgery. I had staples in my low back, and laying down was painful with one of the staples already partially popping out. I had to sleep sitting straight up the first couple of...

A Series Of Paranormal Events Pt. 2 by Aeropostale

I have finally gathered my thoughts enough to get to writing a part two for you all. However, some of these next encounters are my close friend's as well. I might not be able to get them all into one story, but there will definitely be more parts. Now, let me give you a little bit of background inf...

The Black Figure And The Pigeon by easyforcheez2

This experience happened near Spokane, Washington in the early fall month of September in 2020.

Ghostly Hand Squeezes Mine As A Child by Aros

I have already posted two stories that occurred to me when I was an adult. This memory involves when I was a child, perhaps 4 years old or around there.

The White Face On The Celling by Insomnia_Shinsou

So a little background; my room is always cold but we just blamed it on the fact that I only have 1 vent leading to my room. But now that I think about it I believe that not the reason. I have always had an overactive imagination so when it comes to seeing things my parents dismiss it saying it's al...

Strange Visitors by annie16

It's been over two years since I last submitted an experience. Since then, so much has happened. Within a 3 month period, to the day, I lost my older sister, her husband (my brother-in-law) and my niece. All were natural although very sudden deaths. Suffice it to say, it was an extremely emotional p...

Creepy Gollum by RoseyWren

This is an ongoing story really, I've lived in this house for around 5/6 months now, nothing notable has happened, bangings around the house that I've just passed off as being the neighbours when my children aren't home or the children if they are home, even if they're in the same room as me, easier...

The Girl In White by M00nchxld_

It's been a while. As I've said before in my story "There's something in your room" I've had many paranormal experiences. I believe I should speak of another, especially as it's a recent recurring event. I'm sure many of you have heard of the Dead Girl game. If you haven't, it's a game where you ...
