Real Ghost Stories

A Scary Experience


I am Maahi and I am of 14 years old. I live in Hyderabad. Before entering into the story I want to introduce myself. Nobody in our family believe ghost or their existence, but they strongly believe in god. I am the only one girl who firmly believes in ghost and god.

So, entering into the story, in Summer vacation I always visit my grandma's house in Hyderabad only. So, my aunt (my mother's own sister), whenever they go out to a restaurant or a movie they used to take me too because they used to live near my grandma's house. So, sometimes it was getting late at night and they used to take me to their house instead of dropping me in grandma's house to stay that night.

Once they took me to a movie and it was late at night (around 11:00 pm) so they took me to their house and I slept there that night. It was an apartment and I was sleeping in a bed which was attached to the window. Suddenly, I got a nightmare that a ghost appeared on other side of the window and it was keeping his hands inside the walls as it was pressing me at my hips and I am suffering from severe pain. I suddenly opened my eyes and I was really feeling a severe pain at my hips. So, I was chanting Hanuman Chalisa and tried to get sleep but when I closed my eyes and stopped chanting, I felt that someone entered into the room and shouted at me loudly. I was feeling very much scared and I began to feel paralyzed and I was also not able to speak. So, slowly I opened my eyes and I saw a shadow-like structure and I shouted loudly and everyone in the house got up. My aunt told to me to sleep with her as I was not able to talk and that night and my condition was also very bad. The next day I was admitted in hospital because I was suffering from high fever, vomits and weakness.

From that day, whenever I sleep in my Aunt's House I was used to take a photo of god and used to keep it under pillow. REALLY VERY SCARY AND WEIRD EXPERIENCE.

I'm 13 and I live in the USA hopefully, I never have to experience any ghosts. My house is filled with God's pictures and my dad is a true believer in Hanuman Dada. My mom, sister, and I are true believers in Sai Baba. God is always there for you. - Om Shri Sai Ram, Jai Bhajrang Bali 😊

its not just about you... Even I have the same experience but not so horrible... One day I was sleeping in my home at noon and I felt that some one has pressed my neck behind... I was feeling that but I got paralyzed... I can open my eyes but... Can't say a word or even to move my hand... I have often these kind of feeling. But I don't know the reason. 😢

That was scary 😨 By the way, I'm 13, and I'm from India too 😊 Did you go to your aunt's house after that? And did you tell your parents?

How can you be this ignorant and say chanting won't do you any good?

Have you ever tried it?

Which is it?

Were you...

"No I am damn sure I was fully awake and I was also in a good condition"


"My aunt told to me to sleep with her as I was not able to talk and that night and my condition was also very bad. The next day I was admitted in hospital because I was suffering from high fever, vomits and weakness."

Yes it is possible you were fully awake... AND because you were 'sick' (early stages before having to be admitted to the hospital) its possible you were experiencing hallucinations due to whatever was making you sick...

Or are you saying that the 'spirit' you saw made you sick?

The possibility that you were sick and what you 'saw' was part of the early symptoms has to be ruled out before the paranormal can be considered and that is rather hard to do because you state that you were admitted to the hospital with a high fever, vomits and weakness.

So I ask you again Which is it... Or perhaps the better question is this... Which is more likely, a spirit/entity made you sick? Or you were sick and experienced a hallucination?

Maahi- I wanted to apologize; I wasn't trying to offend you or discredit your experience. I only mentioned the fever hallucination and sleep paralysis as plausible explanations, but since you didn't have a fever and were fully awake, those theories are moot.

I'm with MissKawaii83 on this one. I know that high fevers can cause hallucinations so it could be possible that you had a fever that night and hallucinated the experience. Another thing to consider: though you say that you Woke Up from a nightmare, and had this creepy experience, some of the things you experienced (paralysis, feeling a presence in the room, and seeing a shadowy figure) sound like sleep paralysis. Were you 100% awake when this happened or in that "in-between-sleep-and-awake" state?

Hi Mahii, I don't mean to discount your story in any way, but you said that you had a fever and were taken to the hospital the next day. Years ago, (when I was 13) I had a really bad stomach bug - I was off school for nearly 2 weeks as I wasn't able to eat as was constantly being sick etc. During that time, I slept downstairs on the sofa and I remember hallucinating a lot and hearing my dad calling my name and loads of weird stuff! It was all because I was poorly and so my mind was playing tricks on me due to the illness!
Again, I don't mean to try to tell you that what you experienced wasn't paranormal, but perhaps it wasn't! And I hope it wasn't as that will put your mind at rest!
Take care:)

Maybe it was also a nightmare and the fever was because you got frightened 😕

Hey there! I have a question, do you feel any such intruder trying to harm you after you started sleeping with God's photo under your pillow? If not then I guess it was just a spirit passing by and found you to be his prey. Great story. Be good. Thanks.

hi, maahi your story is similar to mine, please tell me after that incident is anything happen with you again.
And chanting do help a lot as my personal experience, do chanting while in trouble and if any problem occure take it seriously and visit experts.

Isn't it interesting how every religion is really that particular nationalitys working out how God and humanity work together. They all have a method for dealling with paranormal expieriences. Really interesting story and comment, wish there were more from a variety of faiths.
