Nephew's Farewell by ZSneider

I and my brother were the youngest in our clan. My cousins are much older than us so usually we hang out with their children; our nephews and nieces. In our clan, I have 2 close nephews who share the same age bracket. We were always close but as time flies we began to drift apart and proceed with ou...

Not Alone-tragic Loss Warning by mamamissy7

On the evening of August 8th, 2022 around 6pm, my evening turned bad when I started having terrible lower abdominal pain, lower back pain, and pressure out of nowhere. I was 14 weeks pregnant and it seemed odd to me to be hurting like that already, so early on in my pregnancy. I sat down and figured...

Shadowy Hero Or A Mischievous Death Reaper by blosomes

I am not sure if old memories are allowed. This happened during early 2020 during the pandemic. I was on my way back home after shopping in a big shopping mall. Since the pandemic problem, we all had to wear a mask even when we are alone, I see no one around? Hmm... At the car park I saw a few...

The Old Creepy Closet by blosomes

I am not sure if I have delete my previous account or what, I used to be Roy Enowaki Lynx, and was in Brazil. I had moved to Sapporo, and felt I kind of need a Japanese name by my look and so now I am called Ryujin. Oh, we do have hot summer now a days but for a short period, its pretty cool here. ...

Clap?! by 00786

To start the story let me first explain the layout of my house where this experience took place. When you climb up the stairs for the 1st floor on the right you see three rooms (I was the middle one when this happened), my sister was in a room on my left and my mother, brother, uncle and cousin were...

The Old Nun by AussieRedDog

The story I actually thought I've put up...awell...my story, again, takes place in the late 1970s, around 1978 when I was ten. I went to a small country town Catholic Primary school that was taught by nuns. It was an old school, maybe dating back to the very late 1890s as it had an old church on the...

Graveyard Follower by Skadus

I've never been one to be too afraid to tell people my stories. Seeing paranormal activity runs in my family as much as some of us don't like it. Wasn't sure what story I should start with but, here's this one. It comes from my time on Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS. A friend of mine got fascinated by...

My Cousins Death Follow Up & A Small Sign From Beyond by MsRevz80

Hope you are all doing well and keeping yourselves happy and as peaceful as possible. Last year I lost my cousin to what we were told was COVID. I wrote about my experiences during that tumultuous time in another story, which you can find if you view my profile. It has been over a year now an...

I Think It Followed Me Home by Aslipablo

A part of my night routine has been to read a book or watch a series/movie before sleeping. I am a person who could not sleep in the first instance even if I am tired so I require a distraction or cooling-off period before sleeping. The incident I am narrating is a recurring one; I mentioned in m...

Shadow Man In The Fedora by DreamBird

About 2am this morning I was woken up to my little dog barking in the other room. I yelled out of my bedroom for him to stop barking and come back to bed. He is a snuggler and is usually curled up next to me while sleeping. He came back, jumped up onto the bed, and sat staring towards the bedroom do...

They're Just Guiding Us by nesty_khuletz

I'm an avid reader of this page almost everyday visiting here for some new ghost stories to read. Way back 2019 I was employed in a manufacturing company in F. Manalo Street, San Juan. I was new there, and everything I saw was new. All I thought was it is just a new starting company to work for. ...

The Old Packing Shed by AussieRedDog

This is a story that goes back to my childhood in the late 70s. My friend's (who I'll call Luke) family owned a huge amount of land that included owning half of a mountain. This property used to be an old banana growing area that once dominated the hillsides of this area (name is withheld) so you ca...

A Scare In The Empty Flat by Aslipablo

So this happened recently on 18 July. I had gone to Lucknow for a meeting and was given the flat my uncle had rented for his residence. I reached there around 5 PM. The flat was an old one but really spacious with big rooms (a 3BHK). I loved the vibe of the place and called my friend, who lived in t...

Returning To This Site After Almost 2 Years Of Absence by Cole_Harris

It's been over a year since I last visited this site. And reading back through my old posts, I'v realized I've missed one or two of my childhood experiences... So I'm going to correct that, and start posting again... But let's rewind things a bit. I've been gone so long, I feel like I need to reintr...

New Store? It's Haunted by Dergato

I worked on the 3700 block 0f Las Vegas Boulevard for about 4 and a half years. I didn't work for the casino itself, but a third party vendor. We faced the fountains. Vegas always tears down and builds again. There really isn't anything old in the city, but that does not mean once it's gone it's...

Windy City Haunting by Belros79

I am not much of a writer but I believe that this story deserves to be told. I am the type of person who has always searched for paranormal experiences.

Night Horror by 00786

Salutations, and thank you for taking the time to read my story. This happened in the mid 90's, and the location is in Queenstown, Georgetown, Guyana. I was working as a dispatcher for a Taxi service call "Z", which was situated directly across from a cricket ground. I worked the night shift. ...

Floating And A Giant Hand by Marsoplis

This happened some time when I was younger. Probably around ten or so. My room was currently being redone so I wasn't able to sleep in there so my mom decided she'd camp out with me in the living room that night. She was on the couch next to me and I was piled up on a blowup mattress. I don't rememb...

The Mysterious Nurse by ghost_fan

A few years ago, I fell sick due to high blood pressure and needed to be monitored, so they decided to keep me in for few days at a nearby hospital/clinic near my home. This hospital was turned into a small clinic, quite recently at that time. So they sometimes still accepted patients for admiss...

Was He A Ghost? by MohammedAhmed

This is my first time submitting my personal story as I am too shy to share it with anyone and have not even shared it with my family.

The Spirits Of The Old Jail by ParanormalInvestigator19

With a story like this, where exactly do I start?

After all what was the worst that could happe...

What A Surprise Conformation by Piperasc

Let me start by saying I am a true believer in signs from our loved ones that have passed over to the next realm. I don't believe in God and such so I use realm as a way to describe the next phase of life. I used to believe but my faith was shaken and broken. And no one can give me a suitable explan...

When we came back later that afternoon, they to...

Neighbor's White Lady by heavqn

I think this was one of my first encounters with the paranormal. It was way back when I was around 4th grade, when I started seeing things supposed to be unseen by the naked eye. It was a very hot afternoon, as always. I was getting annoyed because I was sweating badly and I didn't really want t...

For some backstory I was 9 when this happened, I remember this very vividly because it was my first time ever experiencing something like this and it also happened the day before my birthday so on May 24th. It was around 1am, everyone was sleeping and I just barely woke up (I fell asleep earlier in ...

My First Encounter - Floating Woman by rebycedaj

I always wanted to share my stories on this site before, but didn't have the courage to do it previously, part of the reason I believe is that English is not my first language and I may interpret my experience (s) differently to what had happened. I have been experiencing weird things and sighting...

The Haunted Moving Dog Statues by Wandering24fox

My cousins came over 3 years ago from Lowa to visit us and decided to tell us about a story when they caught a ghost on camera and about some dog statues they used to have that moved on their own. They said that they got them from a sale at a flea market or yard sale, I forget but the original o...

Annoying Phantom Cats by PaulCratin

I have enjoyed reading Phantom Cat stories here. My personal experience has been somewhat disturbing. Phantom Cats are not new to me, but I never called them that before now. I have felt them for many years, and occasionally seen one out of the corner of my eye. At first, they were more surprising ...

I'm The Son Of A Demon? by HauntedJurist

The Ghost Experiences Of My Life by Mark0477

Ever since I was a kid, I experienced various ghost experiences. Maybe not too many. One of my earliest experiences was witnessing my mother astral project when I was 6. If that even counts as a ghostly experience of some kind. This occurred in the house I grew up in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. I am lyin...

College Dorm Fright by CarmenXerxes

If you want to go to any place that is haunted, just go to the small city of Savannah, Georgia. It's teeming with haunted life; you can't escape it when you're there; every square inch of that city is haunted; and it makes sense since it's one of the oldest towns in the United States. The locals wou...

Shadow Person In The Family by CarmenXerxes

I don't know where to put my experiences, out of paranoia that I will be categorized as a lunatic. Ironically, I had a history of being a hard skeptic who mocks anything that is paranormal, supernatural... Anything that is spiritual. But I know it's because I don't want to give it attention out of...

There Is Another World by Paul1

I have read almost all of these Ghost Stories and I felt the need to comment for all readers. I am also educated in certain fields that take into account the reality of God and the Heavenly courts. We are here on earth in a physical form but spirits do exists. Some are not good, most that try to con...

The Hollywood Roosevelt & Lost Luggage by Josh941

I will start off with an apology because it's quite a lengthy story with a fair bit of background information. This story may not seem as spectacular in comparison to some of the others, but as it might just be my first ever paranormal encounter I just had to share it and get some of your thoughts...

The Little Girl's Doll by prettypittiemama

This doll was OLD, they no longer make dolls like her anymore, and I was thr...
