Real Ghost Stories



Here's another story that I have for you. I remember when my daughter, now 14, was only 2 months old, my now ex-husband and I were staying at his parents house to watch over the house and take care of his 13 year old sister, Shannon, while they were on vacation in Mexico. We were sleeping in his parents bedroom and our 2 month old daughter, Amberley, was sleeping next to my bedside in her own bed.

I woke up in the wee hours and saw a figure (torso and head) hovering over my daughter as if looking at her every feature. I wasn't really sure what I was seeing. The only light in the room was a dim red light from the clock that was on the nightstand next to me. When this being knew that I has awakened, it stood up straight from a bent over position (like somebody standing bent over looking at the baby sleeping but with no legs) and looked at me, then very quickly came right up to my face as if to study my features (I have got chicken skin bad right now just talking about this) and then I started poking my husband to wake up and turn on the light, but he didn't wake up in time before this thing darted off and went right through the bedroom door.

My husband turned on the light and I told him what had happened. We ended up going back to sleep but the next day after I had time to think about what this beings face looked like, I thought, you know what, this looks like my husband's grandmother who died of cancer (two months before this happened), before she ever got to see her Great-Grandchild or even meet me in person. We went through some pictures of her and I swear to this day it was her. Even though this being had only the top part of the body, when it was right in my face, it was like looking at a real person. She was waiting for us to have Amberley and go up to Alabama and see her but she died so quickly after being diagnosed, that it was too late so she came to finish her business of seeing her grandchild and me!

It was a scary way of doing it for me but no harm, no foul!

KitaJade. I don't think I really was that brave but thanks. 😊I was SOOO scared when that happened I'm surprised I did not wet myself. 😆 It happened when I was eighteen years old and I am thirty-four now so I am pretty much over it but I will definitely NEVER forget that night or what 'She' looked like right up in my face like that. It gives me the shivers right now just thinking of her face being inches from mine and then floating right through the bedroom door.

Thanks for taking the time to read my story.

I did like this story. I find many people who pass to quickly, that they have unfinished business to do and so they carry it out after they are dead. Then and only then can they be at peace. Well written.

Wow, that's creepy, that would scare the hell outta me if it came right up to me! The closest I've ever come to something like that is seeing my reflection in the mirror change to somebody else's face, it's freaky as hell! It's only happened once or twice, but I've also seen somebody BEHIND me in the reflection, but of course I don't wait to see what happens I just turn right around to see it, then nobody's there... I'll be posting another story either today or tomorrow, because this week has held a couple of rather creepy events for me. Good luck to you.

Hello Mustang, I really enjoyed your story and thanks for sharing with us. I am so glad that I`m not the only one to get "checked out" in the middle of the night by departed family members 😊. While this can at times be scary just think of what might happen if we didn`t "pass inspection..." 😉 Take Care.

Hello Mustang. There is no way I would have been able to go to sleep after that. I would have had to get up and start cleaning the house or something! 😊
I am glad that your husbands Grandmother did get to see her Granddaughter. What a blessing, and a scare at the same time! Thank you for sharing this, I am so sorry it took me this long to get here.

Mustang, Great story. I'd say it was your exes grandmother just checking in on her new great granddaughter. She probably zoomed in on you so quickly to get a good look at you because she was excited to finally "meet" you. 😊

Being a new mommy at the time, this must have been sooo scary for you! Atleast this spirit ment no harm to your baby. I guess you could say this was a good experience, besides the creepy awakening part 😆

Good story thanks for sharing it!

hey like your story... Ok I'm just going to come out and say it I'm a psychic 😊 yah sure I'm young, but I don't care I'm doing really well with it. Well my comment is that I think that maybe your husbands grandmother could be your daughter. I only think this because I strongly believe in reincarnation and a lot of the time a family member will come back as your son or daughter. Like not to long ago I seen this one woman who her daughter (who was really young at the time about 3or4) said that she was this womans father and her daughter was. So if your husbands grandmother died before your daughter was born, than your daughter just could be your husbands grandmother. Now that's just what I think because it does happen a lot and it is sortta nice to think that your husbands grandmother decited to chose to be your daughter, but that's just me 😁

Well I hope you enjoyed my comment and I wish the best to you and your family!

Hi guys! Thanks for commenting my story. I had never met his grandmother in person. We only saw pictures of each other and talked on the phone a couple of times so I didn't know her and that's why I think it wouldn't have felt heart warming or sweet when it happened because there had never been a relationship between us. Like Abby said, I think we over re-act or dramatize things sometimes, especially something that is paranormal and happens within a matter of minutes. There is very little time to grasp what's happening. I do know that she was right in my face which was very frightening especially with the glow of the red light from the clock. It just happened so fast I didn't even have time to scream before she was gone, right through the bedroom door. Besides, I'm not really a screamer. 😊I think I also don't scream being afraid to startle or possibly upset these entities. Thanks again! Talk to you soon I hope. It seems I can never catch you guys when your commenting at the same time on a story. I guess we have different schedules or something. -Shelby ❤

I liked your story, but I would have screamed if an apparition addressed me like that. No way I could go back to sleep. I had something punch me and whistle in my ear and around the room once and I didn't sleep a second afterwards.

Cool story!

Dear mustang,

Well, if you looked at photos and the person you saw as a ghost or spirit looked like your husband's grandmother's photo; it is quite possible that is who the lady ghost or spirit was. Though, it may not be the way a loving grandmother or great-grandmother might act or re-act, there are two sides to every story, and this may be how granny or great-granny was while alive and in everyday life, in your face. Sometimes as experiencers, we do have a tendency to make things a bit more dramatic than sometimes they really are. It is a two way street. I wonder sometimes what the ghost, spirit or entity would have said in their version of their own story. ;) I do think granny or great-granny might need to work on full manifestations, those half body things can be scary to human beings. Really wish there was a ghost, spirit and entity etiquette handbook for them. :)

Thanks and Blessings, Abby

Yeah I have to agree, seeing a ghost is bad enough. But to have it come charging up to the bed you are in and then just checking you out so to speak. Thanks for the story mustang.

Peace, Love, and Luck be with you.

Wow, usually ghost stories of friends and family members are heart warming and sweet (usually), but this one really creeped me out. Can't imagine going back to sleep after that, or ever, come to think of it 😉
