Real Ghost Stories

The Shadow In The Dark


I, as a person, have always believed in ghosts and the supernatural. I have had experiences in my dreams that shock me and wake me up, I have had sleep paralysis, but the sleep paralysis was in another home that I was in, that really turned me into a believer, I have tried to talk to ghosts, read many stories and commented on them entirely. I have had some experiences before this time, but my newest one happened two nights ago.

My room is a small one with the bed in a corner facing the hallway and the door is left open. When everyone is asleep except me it is very quiet except for when it is raining. It was not raining this particular night. I was watching TV, (my house is a decent sized house, the lounge is on the far right and the bedrooms are at the far left of the house) after awhile I felt like going to bed, it was also very cold outside. I watched TV a little while longer, there was really nothing worth watching so I switched it off and went to bed. I lay on my bed facing out to the hallway. Just as I was starting to get comfortable I heard a loud noise coming from the lounge, like a banging noise. I shrugged it off and got comfortable once again. Soon after I had done that I looked out to the hallway and saw what looked like a person, drifting in the shadows. I looked at it and then it had walked away from the door and to the rest of the rooms in my house.

This had not been the first time I have seen this figure in the shadows, but this was the first time I had heard it moving things.

I do not wish the ghost to go, I simply want to want to talk to it.

I would use an Ouija board to contact it, but I cannot seem to find one.

Ouija boards... You see. Many people associate them through stories that have been told to them by, most likely, unreliable sources.
You see, personally, when I feel a spirit, I feel its energy creeping around me in the air.
This energy holds their emotions. Ouija boards, known for their trouble, almost seem to pulsate an energy that almost always attracts something negative. I don't know if you've heard of this, but there is a way to freely communicate with them, and not worry about attracting something...negative. This object is called a pendulum (sorry if my spelling is off) a pendulum is usually a positive stone hung from a necklace chain (necklace chains are preferable because they provide a straighter but easy to move handle. Most people use clockwise for yes counterclockwise for no. You will know you are receiving an answer when it moves on its own, but most importantly, when you can feel the spirits energy coursing through the chain. A good stone to use could be hematite, rose quartz, or even a crystal but be aware that if the crystal becomes foggy or unclear, that it holds a negative pulse. You can check online to find ways of cleansing these stones. Good luck with communicating. I hope my advice helps unless someone got to it first. 😉
Please remember, while communicating, spirits were once living breathing humans, they can lie, just like we can. ❤

If you want to contact this spirit, there are other devices you can use. A digital recorder to pick up disembodied voices, an EMF meter to detect electro magnetic frequency, or a digital camera. Please do not use an Ouija Board. It will cause you more trouble than it's worth.

Thanks for sharing your story, and good luck! 😊

Um... Well I advise to use those boards as a last option, but then again on of my fiends used one and it solved her ghost problem.

I've said it before and I will say it again: "WARNING COMES BEFORE DESTRUCTION!"


Time and time again, these boards have proven to have made the situation worse. I'm glad you can't find one and I pray you never find one.
That's all I'm going to say on this one.

God bless you! I'll keep you in my prayers.

Nope... Avoid using ouija boards...
Didn't you read the other's stories regarding ouija boards? Better don't. 😐
