Real Ghost Stories

A Creepy Experience


My name is Deepak and i'm 22 now. I live in a small town in India. When I was 12 years old, our family moved to a new house and it was an old house but nothing wrong about it. Things were great for the first few weeks. But one night while I was sleeping I woke up suddenly and I saw an old woman in white dress standing in front of me and she was staring at me. I was scared to death. Suddenly I realised that I can't move and that I lost my voice. I cried silently and I don't remember what happened next, I just woke up in the morning. I wanted to tell my parents about this but I didn't.

Another night after a few days, when all of us were sleeping, except my dad, he is watching tv. Suddenly the ceiling fan fell over my chest. I just can't bear the pain and I started crying like hell. My parents were worried about me and took me to a doctor. At that time when we came back and we all slept. I got this creepy feeling that I'm being watched. I just removed my blanket from my face and I can see that old woman on the ceiling. This time she was laughing at me and making very loud sounds. The thing is when ever I see her I can't move any part of my body and I can't even talk. I know I'm a kid when this happened but this isn't an imagination. I've told my mom about what happened to me and she said she also experienced something like that.

I don't know how it all stopped happening to me, but it stopped.

Also I've read somewhere that sleep paralysis may be the cause for the condition in which we cannot move or talk and when we feel tense we will imagine things that we will feel afraid. But I don't know which one is true.

Was the old woman just my imagination or a ghost?

Deepak, I also had experiences like that in my chilhood... But with age we become attach with this living world. In childhood I used to see some old people each night in front of my head... Though now I think they were not scary at all. But not from our world too. I could cry or move... Later I knew this is spirit walking... In childhood many people leave their body in sleeping but they comes back again... Sometime you felt you are just in air not in bed... Like that... This is one type of spirit walking...

Hi Deepak, your story was very scary. The old women was a ghost or she might be a owner of that house before your family arrived. Just check the history of that house. Do you still stay there and where is the location? Pls reply. God Bless You and Your Family

Yes, thanks that helps me visualize it much better, I get it now, that's pretty scary, sitting on the ceiling like some one would on the floor reminds me of something I just not sure what.

Hello deepak22! Very creepy story indeed. I have experienced sudden loss in physical power like someone has drained it and unable to perform normal physical movements when encountered with a paranormal entity once. I feel helpless as like yours.
I don't think that you were dreaming at all, it was really an evil entity.
Thanks for sharing it.

[at] sheetal As far as I know we were the first ones who moved to that house for rent. Previously the house owners lived there.

[at] sam222. The screw that was attached to the support of fan came off from it. Imagine a person sitting on floor with his legs folded, the ghost was in same position but head down and bottom attached to ceiling.

Well usually when someone is scared to death it raises their blood pressure, and high blood pressure can cause temporary paralysis. And You said the ceiling fan fell onto you, did it like come right out of the ceiling?!?!?!? Or did it come and like hang from and electrical cord. If it came right out of the ceiling, it had to have forced out, unless it was getting loose from the ceiling and just fell. Also you said you saw the woman on the ceiling, well can you describe that? Like How was she on the ceiling, was it here whole body or like just her head cause I could see a being on the ceiling but picturing the whole figure on the ceiling just keeps making me think of Spider-Man.

Hi, Deepak welcome to YGS... I am thinking how much you was scared when you saw that old women hanging on ceiling... 😨 😨 Oh Lord...

As you say it could be your imagination or ghost. I just want to ask to you. Do you know the history of that house may be some old women got unnatural death?

I think it was residual haunting...

God Bless you...

Certain experiences occured to me some 2 years ago. I am also from india and my name is ishaan. As per what I experienced there can be 2 conclusions:
1.If its really a ghost then your fear paralyzes you. Try to stand for yourself (as was in my case). It will be long gone
2.As you said it could be the play of your brain.

Is the activity still going on or did it stop since the move?

It honestly could have been either. Do you still live in the same place or have you moved?
