Real Ghost Stories

My Cousin


One night, when my dad came home from a night out with his friends, he walked down the stairs and I saw a cousin that had died a while back coming down the stairs behind him. The only thing I can honestly say that frightened me was his eyes. Why? Because the ghost (my cousin) looked at me back with very wide eyes, like in a way the ghost was surprised that I could see him. When I turned to tend to my baby sister, he was gone. He appeared like a real person (in flesh). When my father came down stairs I asked him if that cousin have a twin brother and he said no, and then I asked "then who was the guy behind you?". My whole family froze. And that was the end of that story but I have others too.

Most of my childhood was filled with sighting and dreams I just don't remember them all, my mother remembers most of them. I never told anyone beside my family, my mom never let me, she always said people will make fun of me.

I see what my mother meant now people today really don't believe in ghosts or sightings of any kind but that's okay, everyone is simply different. I feel it's a gift from god. I love to read about sightings, it's great that there are sites like this one.

I don't make fun of people that can see what others can't, my brother is the same as you but just doesn't say anything until he feel's like saying what he expierance. He's more of a sensitive then I am so we both basically say things like that to one another before saying to our family, he expieranced thing more then me because I'm kind of scared of somethings that most people can't. I would like to hear more of your stories if you like to share with the people that goes to this website to share there's as well, and it doesn't matter what people think of you just as long as you be yourself ^-^
Have a good day melisa123

Hey Melisa123, don't worry, you can tell us your stories, I assure you that we won't make fun of you. Many people nowadays don't believe in ghosts and apparations and stuff but then there are many people who do, and we're on here so spill out all your stories and expect to get advice. In some ways I guess it can be a gift from God, like when he wants you to do something to help a spirit in need, he will let you see or hear this soul so that you could help them. That's just the way I see it, well thanks for sharing you story Melisa, take care and may God bless you. 😊

So true! I am just like you, except I can tell my friends. Most people in Texas believe since it's one of the most huanted states in the US I beleive. Since the civil war taking place here and all. Thank you for the short, yet grand story.
Blessings to everyone,
