Got What I Deserved by Jennifer40

Recently I was asked by a friend if I had any ghost stories. I had forgotten about this experience and thought where it is so close to Halloween I would relay it here.

Dream Visitation And Possible Astral Projection? by Emilieoxox

I have two stories here, the first of which I am certain was a spiritual visitation from my Grandparents in a dream state, so it wasn't an actual dream but rather a way of lost loved ones coming through to us as we're sleeping and on a different vibration to what we are when awake. STORY 1: It...

The PE hall...

Little Boy Spirit by Emilieoxox

I've just joined this site and have really enjoyed reading some of the stories posted, so thought I would share one of my own. We moved into our current house in 2017 and right from the start we knew we weren't alone. At first we would hear footsteps, or catch a glimpse of something out of the...

Ghost In Our Home by RKirby

One Year Later by Limey

This event happened close to twenty years ago. I can check the exact date, but I don't think that's important. I had what is called a visitation dream. Like most people, when I've had a particularly dreamy night, I usually forget everything a few minutes after waking up. My first wife and I divorc...

Fiddler On Church Steps by goblinkwain

First of all I have to put the obligatory "long time reader, first time submitting". I have been reading this website on a near nightly basis for a long time, I love it.

We Are All Connected by Cherubim

I was talking with a friend that told me she didn't believe in coincidences, that there really are no accidents and every thing happens for a reason. As I sat alone and pondered this thought I came to the conclusion that things are meant to "go wrong" on this planet to teach us something. It's g...

Man In The White Suit by Aurella

I saw a man appear beside my bed when I was about 6 years old. I lived in Texas on Ashley Road, I believe it was near Katy, Tx. His hair was black and slicked back.

Sleep Paralysis Over The Years by TheSweetDevil23

It has been some time since I had stopped having nightmares every night.

Maybe it has to do with a lot of things I had...
