Recent Paranormal Experiences

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. However, I feel safe on this website because no one will judge me here. This is a true incident that I witnessed and I hope you guys will understand what I went thro...

Unknown Maid's Room by chumamesha777

This story I am about to share happened 6 months ago. We live in Pasig, Philippines now. The encounter happened in Gapan, Nueva Ecija.

Somebody Followed Me by Aslipablo

It was December of 2019 in Gurgaon. I was working in an MNC (my first job) whose hours due to market locations were from 3PM to 11PM (IST). I was living in a posh society in Palam vihar, where me and 3 of my friends managed to get a whole builder floor on rent. My friends also worked in the same com...

The Spirits Of The Old Jail by ParanormalInvestigator19

With a story like this, where exactly do I start? I have always held an interest in the paranormal, and this one evening in St. Augustine, I decided I would attempt to perform a paranormal investigation and get my toes wet, and see what it was all about. 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...

My Grandma Visits My Mom On Her Wake by iamestee

This story happened during the wake of my mother last April, 2018. My husband and I were busy preparing for the documents needed for her burial hence, we asked his dad (my father-in-law) and his cousin to take care of the vicinity while we're away. 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...

2 Encounters In 1 Night by yaheeyahaa

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

This story happened to my mother and some supernatural thing that surrounds me. I was an accidental baby. Being an accident, my mother does not want me to be born. She was considering aborting me. She had a last-minute change of heart after intense crying and praying in Quiapo church. A few mo...

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...

A Paranormal Encounter by mimizzz

This account dates back to maybe 2015, I was probably in 4th standard back then. I lived with my family, i.e, my parents and my younger brother in the government bungalows. There were actually a lot of stories circulating about these bungalows were we lived because obviously they were pretty huge an...

The Little Girl's Doll by prettypittiemama

I was 7 years old, and just about to go into the 1st grade. I had just moved and knew no one. When I was younger I was obsessed with dolls, and for my 6th birthday, my grandma had gifted me a doll she had found at Goodwill. This doll was OLD, they no longer make dolls like her anymore, and I was thr...

Hospital Haunt In Cleveland by Linjahaha

It was around 1994-95 when I got hired at one of the major hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio (leaving the name out, but there are several). I had a medical background & was hired for the Radiology department. Most of my experience was in patient care and secretarial work. However, I adjusted quickly to...

Room 244 by Jcct

In a previous story, I shared my paranormal incident at hotel Long Beach, Cox Bazar. But that was not my first paranormal incident at any hotel. The first one occurred when I was (most probably) at the age of 12. I along with my parents visited India for the very first time, just for a family tour...

Hotel Long Beach by Jcct

Cox Bazar is the famous place for tourists and the 2nd end land of Bangladesh. Zamil and I are cousins but we are more than that, like brothers. So after my mid-exam, I planned to go outside for a trip to Cox's bazar with Zamil as my parents were outside of country for business work. It was 7th...

A Creepy Creature by HunterJack

After a long time, I want to share a latest paranormal experience here. Actually it was my younger brother's paranormal experience and it happened few days ago on 3rd may 2022.

The Girl Under The Tree by The_Dark_Soul

Was It Really Me? by Jcct

I want to share an incident which took place 12 days ago with me. And I don't know what you all will think about me, but I swear I saw it. I am now 17 and will give my IGCSE exam soon. For my exam, I have to move here and there to do coaching's. I live in Bangladesh's capital city, Dhaka. There i...

Grandma's Visits by Linjahaha

This occurred back in 1975 when I was married to Bill, my first husband. The marriage stunk, and that was probably the reason all this happened. We had just moved into a nice 3-story apartment complex on Euclid Avenue in Euclid, Ohio. It was a spacious, and beautiful 1-bedroom apartment. It contain...

Spiritual Visitations Do Happen by Linjahaha

We have all lost loved ones, let's face it. I lost my wonderful spouse, John, almost 8 years ago and it was the hardest thing I've 'ever' faced in my entire life. It was far worse than 'any' physical pain you can imagine. Someone could have stuck me in the gut with a Bowie knife, and I'd have pulled...

Two Episodes Of Curious Nature by believe_sceptic

I have been a long time reader on this site, but have never taken the time to set and write up my experiences. Both these incidents have been years apart and no way connected, but they are pretty fresh in my mind. Hope they are a good read for all! 1. It was in 2010. My husband and I lived in a ...

My Ghostly House by Jordan_hunts_ghosts

My home was built in the 60's, meaning that stuff probably went down there. When my parents were looking at the house, there was just bottles of holy water (and possibly sage) in the basement. They were all from the years 1996-1999. We knew something was off about this, and we wanted them to ju...

Three Days Ago by Jcct

One day I was at home, preparing my school work. My dad and mom went for a marriage party and I was at home due to ongoing exam of mine. The time was (most probably) 9:40 pm. After completing my work, I went to the restroom. After coming out, I felt like a shadow moved quickly in-front of me. I thou...

Strange Encounter With An Entity by M00nchxld_

I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on an event. Recently (past 6 months) I have been experiencing a strange interaction with a spiritual entity. Experiences have ranged from hearing a monotone bird-like whistle at early times in the morning while I'm outside (5:30). If I choose to ign...

Strange Series Of Events At Work by Rachel9997

This happened a few days ago at my workplace. I was working this opening shift with the same co-worker I always do. I got there first and went into the break room to put my stuff down. As I was putting my bag down on the table, I started to get this distinct feeling that I wasn't alone. Not necessar...

Big Fright In Several Places by Firegirl14

I, my twin brothers and a brother younger than I, and his friend were at the church tombola event at Sea View's Dutch Reformed Church in the 1970s. My mother sent us to our house, which was just across the street! When we walked to the back door, the curtains were see-through, we saw my grandm...

The Countdown Alarm by Denitas

To start this off I was 13 years old. I wanted to buy an alarm clock just because it felt more natural. So I bought an average size like 20cm or 15cm. Everything was fine. I just wanted to see the time so I didn't need to look at my cellphone. One week passed everything was fine. I was home alone...

Potential Specter Of The Combative Arts? by GingerRead

Since I was sixteen, I have had an immense fondness for martial arts. After joining an amazing Karate dojo in September of 2004, I have since achieved Black Belt status in Shotokan Karate, as well as the Fourth Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I was granted the honor and privilege of competing at t...

Skull Scare by Cornflower

This took place in the mid-80s when I was eleven or twelve. My mom was an art teacher back then, and my best friend's mom was an artist, so there were a lot of "artsy" things floating around our two households: cracked pottery, sculptures, fancy drapes, costume jewelry, you name it... But the one th...

Phantom House Workers by DandK

Over the past few years I haven't experienced anything other than the usual knocking sounds and shadows... Fairly normal stuff here that I've gotten used to. However, the other night I got up at around 2 am to use the bathroom and had an unusual experience that I wanted to share. I walked out of ...

The Devil In The Bathroom by GhostGal10001

I was six years old. My older sister was nine. The year was 1982. My mom and dad went out somewhere that night and got us a babysitter. We lived in a very small, 2 story, 2 bedroom apartment with one bathroom that was upstairs. Our babysitter was a teenage girl who lived 2 doors down. The babys...

Who Pressed The Button? by RCRuskin

My dad passed away less than a week ago, relative to the time I'm writing this. Cancer is the official cause of death, but given he'd not eaten for 9 days and not had anything to drink for 2 days prior to his death, the rational part of me says to go with starvation. Yesterday, I saw something weird...
