Recent Paranormal Experiences

Lady In The Mall by -Hana-

The haunting took place in Leung King shopping mall before it's renovation. When I was little, I would often go shopping with my mom. Every time we were walking to the grocery store, I'd always see a lady sitting against the wall (around 30 or so). Her face is unusually pale, has long black hair ...

Knocks On The Door by handsomerobber

The incident I'm about to share with you all happened to me a few years ago. I used to stay in a 1 bhk apartment back then. I was a kid when I moved there with my parents. I got a negative review of this apartment on the very first day after moving there. My mother and I went to a shop and the lad...

A Haunting In Drakensberg by crazypaws

In September of 2010, I went on a group tour in South Africa. There were about 20 people in our group, from all over the world. Our guide was a local man with many years of experience. About a week into our trip, we were arriving at Drakensberg, a beautiful mountainous area. We were staying on a pri...

The Banshee by Iman

Let me explain what a Banshee is. The banshee is a predictor of death. If someone is about to enter a situation where it is unlikely they will come out of alive she will warn people by screaming or wailing, giving rise to a banshee also being known as a wailing woman. I live in Canada, and back w...

I Think I Got Possesed by blockgunnar453

It all happened a few days ago. AND LET ME BE CLEAR, I HAVE NO ACTUAL MEMORY OF WHAT HAPPENED. My mom told me what actually happened. After coming back home from school, doing all my homework and blablabla all the stuff that a high school kid does after coming home, we went to sleep. We live in a re...

Manitoulan Island, Ontario by JamesF

This story occurred back in the summer of 1964 when I was nine years old, on the annual family vacation. We packed up the station wagon headed north to the Island from Windsor, Ontario. After a three hour car ferry ride from Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula, we arrived at South Baymouth. My dad rent...

Keeps Coming Back by Haven

For the last couple of nights I've been hearing noises in my bedroom at night. The noises sound like there is someone walking around in the bedroom and when I'm asleep. I get woken by a rustling noise, like someone is crumbling paper or moving a plastic bag. I thought maybe it could be a mouse even ...

I Thought Dad Just Came To Visit Me by hansolo

I have had a few paranormal experiences myself along with everyone in my family. I believed in ghosts since I was a little girl, because I guess it's always just been a part of me growing up. My father passed away in 2016 from a small-celled stomach cancer, he was diagnosed in 2015. I had less th...

My Mother's Doppelganger by luisporras

This story takes place around 10 p.m. When I was a teenager, around 2001. There isn't much to the story, it's not fantastical, but it freaked me out and left me wondering what the heck just happened. The rooms that are important to this story are the kitchen, my mom's room, and the family living ...

My Father's Story by Katiebug

Maybe it's just that my family's memories are like elephants, but at this year's family Christmas party, the talk ultimately turned to ghosts that the family has experienced. My Aunt Linda chuckled over her ghost being on 'the web' and my mother acted a little proud and embarrassed to acknowledg...

Aunt Linda's House by Katiebug

Knowing my family's love of ghost stories and the ghosts they've encountered in different places they've lived, it was no wonder my family would start sharing some stories. I found one that really intrigued me, for the simple fact that it was my favorite place to stay during the summer, my Aunt ...

Elizabeth by Katiebug

While none of my experiences were all that intense, there are several things that I have seen and heard that are more than real. I was born in a tiny town not far outside of the New York border. The town grew up as a railroad/mining town. Our house was built at the edge of town, the owner liking his...

My account is about the building I work in (Thorndon, Wellington, New Zealand in case any of you have knowledge of it that might be helpful).

Army Man In The Office? by sherm784

As I've mentioned in previous stories I work in the garment district of New York City, and have had experiences where I've seen something out the corner of my eye or in one of the neighboring office windows that shouldn't be there. A very jarring one of those occurences happened recently. We'd been ...

Ghost Of The Old Headmaster by Filmbuff1234

There Is A Canadian Man In My Closet by msforgetmenott

The Beginning Of My Paranormal Experiences, Age 3 by MusingsGrace

As this is my first story shared on this site, I felt it makes the most sense to begin at a beginning. I'm a rare individual who has always known ghosts, and therefore has never doubted them. I'm also a lucid dreamer; this is also a part of me that is hard wired. Unfortunately, when one is under 4, ...

My First Real Experience by Dennis191

**Note: You will find some odd remarks/responses described in the story to some words/phrases/sentences, because... Well you in the USA would find it odd if someone talked to you in Hungarian.

My Partner Saw A Ghost Figure Of Me by Fran2442

My partner messaged me this morning saying he woke up to grab his phone and saw me at the bottom of his bed, as if I had just woke up. I was crying apologizing to him and he said he couldn't hear me, so I used my pointer finger to write it in the air, spelling out I'm sorry and then, as I was crying...

Hug From A Spirit by ANGIELJ09041968

I live in Savannah, Ga. I'm a single mom of five. I often give my bed up to avoid the fights between my boys.

Kashi Milli by Rownin

Back when I was 18 years old, during summer vacation I was alone in my house. My family were out of state for quite long so, I was made responsible to look after the house. I was alone and the creepy silence of the house made me little uncomfortable to stay alone especially during the night. So I de...

Mini-tornado by LightMight

This experience took place in the late 1980's, while I was working as a secretary at a business firm in Los Angeles, California. I had been working at that location for awhile, and was rather comfortable with my daily work routine, albeit somewhat dull and tedious. The office environment was very pr...

The Imitation Ghost by sisterspooky

I want to start by saying that my friend and I are deeply interested in the supernatural and regularly read submissions here. Never would I have thought that I, too, would be submitting my own.

The People Who Lived In The Corner by Thelittleboxes

When I was a kid I grew up in one, completely average house, there was no history of tragedy, in fact, we were it's second owners and the previous family had no negative experiences.

Horrifying Face On Wall by West_15

This happened when I was about 10-11 years old in my bedroom. One night I suddenly woke up to a presence in my room. I immediately looked to my wall where there was a face on my wall. It was very clear and it's hard to describe; it wasn't a person it didn't look exactly like a person you would see o...
