Rajine in Playful Soul
Hi GingerRead

Firstly I'd like to offer condolences on the passing of your mother, I like to believe that people who have passed on are always around us even though we can't see them.

Its quite a tragedy that a young child has passed on and is still around, definitely a very interesting incident your mum experienced.
There are many factual errors in this story.
1. It takes more than 30 minutes from Dadar to Bhayandar. It takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
2. There are less than 8 stations, 7 for a fast local train.
3. Last local trains are never empty. They are, on the contrary, crowded. Also, you mentioned that Mira Road came at 12 am, then how did the red sari women boarded at 3 am? It takes 5 minutes from Mira Road to Bhayandar, as you mentioned.
To comment on the story itself:

The badly mutilated crow and the quietly grieving, despondent dog seem, incidentally, to be fitting symbolic representatives of the state of a human soul after such a brutal life and death... The animals that ate this abused and murdered boy may have ingested his unspoken sorrows... Nothing in this world ever disappears entirely... All will out eventually, all must be expressed. That is my belief... Some ghosts are just that: attempts to express something that was too huge (too horrific or too unfathomable) to be communicated fully within the confines of one short life...

I do not mean to say that this explains all ghosts... I think that there are many different explanations depending on the case. But what do others think of this one?

To answer your question about "eunuch prostitutes":
Temple prostitution is still extant in certain regions of India. Poor families, or people who want to strike a bargain with the gods, sell their children to the temples of the goddess Yellamma to become devadasi (temple prostitutes).

Boys are fed alcohol and ritually castrated in a special ceremony. They then become hijras, which are considered a third gender, neither male nor female. They are taught that it is their religious duty to be of sexual service to others.

Girls are taught the same thing. The children are sometimes as young as five or six when they are introduced to this life.

They sing a song:
"Many lie with us, but no one marries us.
Many embrace us, but no one protects us."

So probably, discerninguser is speaking literally.

Sorry for writing so extensively on a topic without a ghost component. (However, spirits of the dark kind that receives energy from the misery of children tend to haunt such temples.)
Hello discerninguser.

It's not clear to me what you mean by "eunuch prostitutes". Are they men whose genitals have been removed or is this an euphemism used in your culture instead of the word "homosexual men"?

I find your experience unnerving and intriguing though, at the same time, I'm struggling to find the logic for these events, and by this I do not mean that I doubt your story, but it's not clear to me if you are suggesting that the spirit of this unfortunate man is responsible for killing all those "dead crows and dogs (are) frequently found in those woods" as a revenge for his death.

Wouldn't it make more sense if the ghost would appear under the circumstances of his last moments? Perhaps screaming and begging for his life to be spared?
Why would he kill the animals if they were not the ones hurting him at the moment of his death? Do you think his attackers mistakenly left him for dead, but he was only badly hurt and the animals fed on his body while still alive, thus him blaming them for his death?

Perhaps the butter-milk vendor leaves the area early to avoid crossing paths with that gang of drug-addicts... Like always, the living are more dangerous than the dead ones.

Thanks for sharing.
Haha, thanks Rajine! It has been a long time since I visited the church, but I plan to visit my old neighbourhood in Baltimore eventually.
Hi The_Lost_Voyage_11,

Thanks for your input. You make an interesting point, and I agree that it seems like a poltergeist situation. The timing just seems strange since I had never experienced anything like this beforehand.
Hello Rachel9997, welcome to YGS and thanks for sharing! It's an interesting story and it's possible it could be a passed loved one. What occurred to me though, is the age range by your name mentions you're a teenager and you spoke in your story of having been through a lot as well. It's possible that this could be poltergeist activity as it certainly sounds like the kinds of things observed during poltergeist incidents. Even though these things had begun to occur after you obtained your grandmothers ear rings, if it was a somewhat emotional experience for you, that could be what triggered it, the icing on the cake so to speak. Anyways good story, perhaps this offers another perspective, good luck!
Hi MrsRamsay,

Thank you so much for your input! I actually haven't spoken to my mom about this, and my coworker was just as baffled as I was.
I absolutely think you and your mom going through the jewelry is what prompted your visits from Grandma!

I've had things jump off the shelves in grocery stores before, and I do think that's an attention-getter! I also believe our family "visits" us. I actually have a photo taken a few Easters ago of our family get together. That morning I'd been thinking about my Grandfather and how he loved it when the fam did picnics outside, which is what we were doing. It was a strong feeling for me, for Grandpa who died way back in 1993. We took a big family photo that day, and there was a streak of light off to the left and in the light you can clearly see Grandpa's face. He was there! So don't hesitate to believe that your grandma is pleased that you picked her earrings! Things like that are very important to some women and I'm sure she's enjoying seeing you grow into a young woman to be proud of! The doors opening, but more than that... The noise the breakroom floor makes and the fact your colleague heard it too are intriguing things! What does your mom think?
MrsRamsay (guest) in The "polterguest"
I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand. You say you "finalized the sale " of the home in 2017 when you were in fourth grade?

Can you clarify? You are obviously not in 7th grade now.
Hi Rajine,

I haven't felt particularly unsettled or threatened at all during any of these incidents. The first time I felt the "draft" I was startled, but I think that's to be expected. Since then, I definitely have actually noticed feeling calm whenever it happens.
Hi Pilotpaul

Seems like you and your family have quite a lot of ghostly activity going on, it was an interesting read, I suppose your grandmother really didn't want to leave just yet and decided to stick around for a bit.
Hi discerninguser

Been a while since I read a story from you, I think the strangest and perplexing part was the crow coming back to life after the way you described it, animals can see and sense things that we cannot, so I think that dog definitely wanted company to get past that haunted spot.
Hi GingerRead

Usually graveyards will have a lot of ghostly activity but I must say that you are quite brave to venture out alone and at night.
Hi Rachel9997

Maybe it is your grandmother or maybe not, I've read a lot about haunted items but personally haven't experienced it myself, I think how you feel will tell, a calm or malevolent vibe each time you experience something out of the ordinary.
Hi livthesciencekid

I suppose watching horror movies and going living a creepy experience is two different things, I just read a story about a weird apartment and I'll say the same thing as I commented earlier, maybe researching the history of the house with shed light on what you experiencing.
Hi Courtney22

This is definitely a very interesting incident you and your family experienced, maybe if you research the history of the place you would be able to learn more about this apartment and what happened previously.
Animal and bird hauntings are quite scary. Your experience is strange and different.
Hello Mrs Ramsay, it was my grandmother who babysat that night. My mom was asked, but my grandmother went in her place.
valkricry in Haunted Farmhouse
Hi MrsRamsay, I think you missed this line: "Because it was a Friday night and my mother had already made plans with her friends, my grandmother offered to babysit in her place."
I used to be a single mom and can't believe how wonderfully brave you were to take your kids on the adventure to Kentucky! You sound like an intelligent, good, loving mom and I just wanted to say so. I hope you will go back and get your things, and not allow yourself to be scared by something that's not even supposed to be a factor. Don't let it bully you into terror. Do you have anyone who can help you pack or whatever? You have successfully managed two covid years, you can CERTAINLY work your way beyond this weirdness!

Just want to be supportive. Bless you and your kids, keep us updated.
MrsRamsay (guest) in Haunted Farmhouse
Hi GingerRead,
Scary story... As someone who used to babysit a LOT as a teen, I can tell you I'd have been freaked out. She was brave to have stood there with her arms out, it sounds like confrontationally. Good for her.

Only one suggestion: I'm unclear as to who the babysitter was, your mom or your grandma. You first suggest your mom babysat, but twice subsequently said your grandma. It doesn't much matter I suppose, but thought I'd point that out (as an editor). Happy New Year!
I have been encouraging him to leave for over 9 months and sometimes he appears to leave the house for a while, but then returns. Again, it seems that he is very attached to the house and doesn't really know how to go or want to leave. Perhaps, he is still trying to figure it out. I will keep praying.

Hello Rajine!

I don't remember what I was dreaming of and I can't remember if it was a bad dream or not.

Also, for those who don't know, a Kapre is a tree-dwelling creature in Philippine mythology. They are spirits that live and protect the forest or trees they are living in.

As for their appearance, they are said to have pitch-black skin, stand around 7-9 ft tall, are hairy, have red eyes, and smokes tobacco.

Hauntings from Kapres (Giant tree-dwellers), Tikbalang (Has a head of a horse and a body of a man), Dwende (dwarves), especially from Aswangs (shape-shifting ghouls that are once human, just cursed and are passed from generation to generation) and Manananggals (Kind of like a vampire but detaches their torso from their lower body, the upper body has bat-like wings and fly through the night to look for victims) are quite common up to this day in the Philippines.

There are some stories here about aswangs that are quite scary in the "Philippines" section of real ghost stories. Here's one of them:

Hi Panini18

It's hard to say what you experienced, could be a ghost or not but can you remember if you were having a dream before this happened?

Also can you explain what a kapre is.?

Have they ever caught that boys killers? I suppose his spirit will still be around considering how he died. It's sad and tragic.
It sounds like what you experienced could have been sleep paralysis.

Thanks for sharing.
If you plan on using a realtor to sell, you can request that they say that the house is said to be haunted. In some states it's part of the discloser act, but I see New Mexico doesn't have that.
At least your Dad seems to be a nice, if stubborn ghost. Have you tried telling him that it's just ok to let go and rest now? Or (if you're ok with it) that he can come stay with you?
Something else to consider; is it possible that you're holding him here? Not really ready to let him go? It does happen. Love is a very powerful 'glue'.
Yes, he seems to be very attached to the house and I've been talking to him for over 9 months now. I talk to him almost daily at times on the video cameras microphones. Some of them have a light that I turn on at night so that he doesn't have to sit in the dark. He will make clicking or popping noises to let me know he is there at times. In other words, I have some kind of relationship with him still. He doesn't appear to know what to do or how to leave and he really didn't have any belief in the afterlife or anything. So, I believe that he is trapped or stuck in the house that he built. Some over members of the family want to sell the house. But I don't think it's a very good idea to sell a haunted house unless the people buying it knew about it and would be okay with buying a haunted house. These are the reasons that I'm reaching out for help I suppose.
TravisCannabis in The Red Crayon Followed Me?
Dude, my first grade teacher would have made me write 20-2=18 a thousand times or until there's nothing left of that friggin haunted red crayon. 😁 😁
parvathi_p in Unexplainable!
Hi [at] lady-glow

I apologies for the late reply.

No. The moment we entered into my room my mother fell asleep. So she dint witness anything if that sort. It was just be who was wide awake and I knew what I saw.

Thank you so much for your advice.
parvathi_p in Unexplainable!
Hi [at] DarkDaisy_13

I apologies for the late reply.

1) No. I witnessed this right after the sense of being watched (above the window, but I thought it was just a space left by me).

2) It was just for a mere second and all I saw was like a tall human's shadow.

3) NO! I honestly dint feel safe at tat particular moment at all!

And even if I try to consider it was a human, it would be so difficult for a person to even peep through that window as I stay on the first floor. There is no way a person can stand because there is no surface.

I thank you so much for your advice.
parvathi_p in Unexplainable!
Hi Rajine!

I apologies for the late reply.

The windows were open but, as I mentioned the sound I heard was the curtains rings being rubbed against the rod and as my curtains were a thick sheet type a slight wind would not make such an evident noise.

I thank you so much for your advice.
Oh my gosh, this was absolutely terrifying! Has your sister seen anything since?
If you happen to come back and see this comment I'd love an update. Is everything still going well? I certainly hope so! 💕
Hi jimbonumber9

Firstly I'd like to offer my condolences for the loss of your dad, losing a loved one is never easy, and the loss will always remain with you.

I believe that your dad is very attached to the house that he built so that could be a reason why he's still around, instead of doing rituals or other things, did you try talking to him? I think maybe he needs reassurance that his house will be taken care of, also try if you can to find out if he had any unfinished business before he passed, that could work as well. All the best and please keep us posted on the progress.
I think it could be Sadie. The math works out. If there's a way to find out who live in the house when it was first built, that would helpful.

Weird things do happen with Ouija boards. A friend of mine told me a spirit she and her friends spoke with spelled out one of their middle names.

I'm totally new to all of this because I've only recently started hearing stories I actually believe, and yours is fascinating to me.
Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry! I know this is an older post but if you happen to come back to read the comments I'd love to know if you've sensed her yet. I couldn't imagine losing one of my pups like that. 😥
GingerRead in Haunted Farmhouse
Hi Rajine, most likely the former homeowner who refused to allow even death to force him out. That's how powerful emotional and spiritual attachments can truly be.
Hi GingerRead

I'd like to believe that orbs are residual spirits maybe trying to communicate with us or get out attention to help them move on, I really do believe that there's so much more that we don't fully understand.
Hi neveragain101

I know how hard it is to start from scratch, to have your hopes and dreams shattered, that experience you and your family went through really hits close to home, having said that, I really wonder what it was that your'll experienced, perhaps the history of the place would shed some light on what it was.

I really do hope you and your kids are doing much better than previously.
Hi GingerRead

That experience would definitely be enough to make anyone terrified, I wonder what it could have been...
Hi Rajine, glad to meet someone who is as interested with Gettysburg as much as I am! I first became fascinated with this town in the summer of 2003 after I saw a documentary about one particular ghost called the Blue Boy. It really freaked me out as a kid and since then, I've been fascinated with learning more!
Thanks for your commentary on my first story. I would love to hear more about your sightings on battlegrounds during the civil war. I agree about your perspective on history. Theodore Roosevelt once said that history is probably the most important subject we can study. Only by learning from the past can we be better prepared for the future ahead.
meteoravishal in I Felt Multiple Entities!
Hi, I really like your stories. And well to be honest, its a relief to read a good story written in proper english with no grammatical errors (Or else instead of focussing on the dtory, my mind wanders towards the endless errors, My OCD).
Anyways do keep up the good work... Though I wish you don't get to witness these kind of stuffs again...
A merry Xmas and HNY in advance.
Thanks for your interesting story! I live in an area that's rich in Civil War history, and if you're aware of such things you can't help but realize there is 'something going on."

If you saw drawers opening by themselves, that's something pretty big. It takes some strength to do that! I'm so glad you're into history and wish others would also study the past. Perhaps they wouldn't take our lives so much for granted if they did!
Hi GingerRead

I've read about and have always been intrigued by the battle of Gettysburg, I've read on the history of it and also many scary and crazy incidents that people have experienced on this group, it definitely was a bloodbath back in the days of war, I believe that there's many restless spirits looking for something, to move on but are stuck here.
Hi again Sparkay

Maybe if you researched the history of the place it would help, maybe something happened there that could shed some light on what you and your friend experienced.
Would love an update if you ever happen to come back to this site.
Hi KirbyP. Just wondering if you will be posting more of your stories? This one gave me chills! Looking forward to reading your other stories.:)
Hi 13***15,

Long time no speak. 😊 These are some interesting accounts from your father. During WWII and the Occupation, Singapore went through traumatic times. Have you looked into the history of the areas? Were there any more recent tragic events in the localities?

I did wonder if your father could have seen the reflection of a cloud cover, passing over the hawker centre. Having said that, I have seen odd flashes of light grey and wisps of dark shadow, and they weren't reflections. I would also have that knowing that something Other was there. If your father was certain in his gut that there were Others passing through, well maybe he did sense something...

I'm not sure about the moving planks at the warehouse, especially how they seemed to fade in and out of view. Do you suppose he could have dozed off for a few moments and had a micro-sleep? Or had a remote viewing of newly-invented machinery somewhere? Have you considered lucid dreaming, or a fleeting vision of some kind? Maybe you can ask your relative, the temple medium. She might have a better understanding of spirit lore and such things, considering your family background.

As for sharing about strange happenings, it all depends on the people you're addressing. Usually, I'd ask discreetly, have a feel for how they're going to react. If they are interested or seem fairly calm about it, I would then go into more detail about the experience.

A few years ago, I stayed with one of my cousins on my last visit to Singapore. That side of the family does not sense the spirits. One night, I saw a small Asian boy in the mirror, peeking out from under the bed. There was no one there when I checked. After finding out that my cousin didn't want to hear about anything ghostly, I kept the incident to myself. But I still cleansed the room; opened the window to let in full sun, tidied the cupboards and drawers, swept and mopped the floor under the bed, prayed and asked for blessings. Fingers crossed!

Good to hear from you. Take care and stay safe over there in Singapore.
This is such an interesting story. I hope this woman who was suffering from depression is doing well now. I totally empathize as I am a sufferer of chronic depression my whole life.

It makes me think of when I was in high school, my final year, I was majorly depressed and suicidal and I had seen or hallucinated a small black furry creature in my room, kind of like a cat. I told a boy I liked about it, not expecting judgement, and he told a friend of his about it and it started a rumor I was "crazy and schizophrenic". Very hurtful!

Anyway, I have seen these creatures in times of depression or mental/emotional distress. My heart goes out to all who suffer from depression and mental illness.
Hi Rajine:
I agree with you; I think the graveyard close to the bungalow was the reason why we felt we were being watched. I wonder if there was also an attachment to the bungalow itself - if someone had died in the bungalow and was buried in the graveyard that was basically across the road.
goblinkwain in Forest Encounter
Artickpiggy, I know you probably won't read this, as I am posting 7 years after you published this story... But I felt compelled to comment anyway!

First of all, I loved your story. And this creature you described instantly reminded me of one of my favorite films.

It sounds just like "the forest spirit" from the film Princess Mononoke. If you haven't seen it, its an incredibly beautiful animated film.
In the movie, the forest spirit is a nature god that has a body much like a chamois, but the feet are three-toed bird feet! And the face is flat! Maybe you saw an ancient, elemental forest guardian. You are so lucky!

Just google search "forest spirit princess mononoke". Its a very striking creature. And definitely watch the film!
Take care
Hi, this is the first comment I have made on here; I have always been interested in how Ouija boards work, but I will never try one, based on the things I have heard. The amount of power that an Ouija board has is stunning. I know someone who believes in ghosts, and has a psychic friend, and they both say not to ever use Ouija boards.
We have a creek very near to our house that your writing reminds me of. I wonder if the ghost might be connected to the creek? I've heard that bodies of water can have things attached to them. Or maybe it's an elemental? Whatever the case, I liked your story.
Hi Sparkay

I'd definitely be freaking out if all that had to happen all at once to me, I believe that the graveyard not to far from your residence could be the reason as to why you and your friend felt like your'll were always being watched.
Hi ThirteenStars15

I'm not really sure what it was that your dad experienced but it's fascinating nonetheless.

I usually share what I experienced with people who I know will help me either find a logical explanation or offer advice on supernatural stuff because not everyone believes in it and it's fine because that's their opinion, I believe that you should also talk to people who share your views on this subject.
Idk bro... Maybe the wooden planks thing was a ghost transformer? 🤔
As for asking people if they see what your seeing I'm not sure, maybe first I would investigate in case there's an explanation or if I'm high. 😁

Panini18 in Haunted Lot
Hello Bibliothecarius,

I'm not sure about people being unaware of Mt. Pinatubo being an active volcano, but my aunt always tells us stories about their experiences when I was younger when it erupted.

And from where our subdivision was, the volcano was only less than an hour away. So our city was the most affected by the aftermath of the volcano's explosion.
Bibliothecarius in Observed On A Crosswalk
Greetings, LightMight.

The idea of an energy vortex or portal never even occurred to me! I've never heard of cone shaped mists seen floating around hospital patients, either, but that just makes your contribution to the discussion all the more interesting.

I agree with your suggestion that we saw the gathering energy of a spirit; the idea that it may have manifested as it did due to an energy vortex would account for how unusual the phenomenon was. While I have had multiple encounters over the years, few of them have been visible to the naked eye.

We've driven this road another eight times since this encounter, and we have not experienced anything like it since.

Bibliothecarius in Observed On A Crosswalk
Greetings Rajine:

I like logical explanations, too, which is why I tried to debunk what I'd seen by scanning the area to see if I was looking at an illusion. If it had been an effect of another car's headlights aimed toward us through trees, for example, it wouldn't have reacted visibly to the headlights of our car. When I discussed it with my wife, I ran through a couple of ideas that *might* have created an illusion, but none of them matched up to the phenomena we'd both seen.

Even though she's more comfortable with the idea that it was an illusion, she was positive enough that there was something on the crosswalk that she slowed the car before I even saw the phenomenon.

Bibliothecarius in Haunted Lot
Greetings, Panini18.

Your response to Rajine and Robertseven interested me, as most people were unaware that Mt. Pinatubo *was* a volcano until the eruption process began in 1991. That eruption was the largest eruption of the 20th century and caused 300 deaths, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, not to mention the deaths due to disease in the refugee camps.

If there was a subdivision, or an evacuation camp, in the area where your home is currently, that could account for some of the activity you've experienced both in and outside of your home. Note that I'm not saying that all of the deceased were in or near your subdivision, but even a small percent of the victims killed by the volcano could lead to residual and intelligent haunting phenomena all over your neighborhood.

Wow! That would have terrified me. Did it leave for good or have you seen it since?
Panini18 in Haunted Lot
Hello Rajine and Robertseven,

That is true, also that subdivision is quite old and has even witnessed the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo back in 1991. But I don't know how far back the subdivision existed.

Also, aside from our house and the house I have mentioned in this story, the house in front of the newly built house was also haunted.
robertseven in We Had A Room-ma
First of all, congratulations on your marriage! I like the way your story flowed - and I almost shuddered thinking about your husband knocking someone out with a bed pole, LOL. You certainly had a bad experience and I'm glad you got your deposit and got out of that place.
robertseven in Haunted Lot
Since you've discovered that the area may have been a battleground and there are abandoned hospitals, it seems to me like you may have encountered an intelligent (as opposed to residual, I mean) haunting. Residuals in such areas are common too, but this one seems intelligent to me. Rajine is correct about the property holding the answers. 😊 I enjoyed reading your story, and I thank you for sharing it.
Also I wanted to mention a weird incident here, I actually wanted to name this post as "We had a Roommate" but due to a sudden glitch on my laptop I couldn't complete typing the word and automatically the post got submitted with the title "We had a Room-ma". I don't know whether it is a coincidence or something else.
robertseven in Hold The Door
I know I know, I'm four years late to the party, but YGS is always teaching me something new. I'd never heard of a "dirty kitchen." As for the door banging, it's not really possible to say why it happened, though things like that do cause one to come close to cardiac arrest. Thanks for sharing this story!
robertseven in We Call Him Steven
I see a ghost cat, but I can't help but think that Anno_Domini is on target. I liked your post, thanks for sharing.
Rajine in Haunted Lot
Hi Panini18

The land a property is built on usually has the answers you looking for.
Wow! How is everything now? I doubt you'll respond as this is an older story but I'd love to an update if possible. I see I'm not the only one who's curious lol.
Panini18 in Haunted Lot
Hello BaiAnina,

I think so too. That subdivision we used to live in is close to the Clark Airbase, and I think our area was one of WWII's battle areas as there were old hospitals around the Clark Airbase.

Those hospitals are all abandoned now and have become a popular area for ghost hunters.
BaiAnina in Haunted Lot
Woah, seems to me like your general area may have some history if it's not just in your house! 😲
Hi Bibliothecarius,

Fascinating story you've shared here, especially since both you and your wife witnessed the same type of sighting in the road!

You mentioned that it 'felt' like a young, female - perhaps it was a wayward spirit revisiting her last place of existence in our realm?

In regard to the cone shaped mist you saw in the road, this may have been an energy vortex, or portal. Supposedly energy vortexes are passages for spirits, and can be cone-shaped. Maybe you were seeing some type of gathering energy (spirit?) just before it started to dissipate?
I've experienced a few cone shaped mist floating around several hospital patients I've visited with while I've been at work. Usually there was a feeling of a calm presence that accompanied the mist, but nothing (unfortunately) that would definitively explain what I was seeing...

Whether it was caused by something natural, or supernatural forces, next time you travel along that road consider recording it on your phone!

Take Care, LightMight
This reminds me of something I've never been able to explain. A few years back I was sleeping on the couch and woke up to a small man in an old looking war uniform. Everything looked normal except for the fact he was maybe 3 ft tall. He didn't look like a small person/dwarf (?) though. And he had a grey-ish cast.
Whatever it was didn't scare me. I felt completely relaxed as a matter of fact. I was so insanely tired I could barely hold my eyes open and fell asleep while he was standing 6ft away from me. As weird as it sounds, I think it made me calmer. Idk, I was just really calm and relaxed in a situation I normally would've been terrified in.

Do you have any updates? Ever find out what those things were?
KonaKane in No Peace For Rusty
This is Vox Mortuus, under a new account as I couldn't salvage my old one. I wrote this story.

After so many years, I came upon this site again last week and was fascinated with the responses. Also that a couple of them were fairly recent. Shortly after posting this story, we moved out of Utah and to Hawai'i, where we are to this day. I've come to find Hawai'i just brimming with ghost/preternatural phenomena. Tons of books already written about it, and even more ongoing cases of hauntings and related events. So much that it deserves its own story which I'll post shortly.

As far as this one, I have not "felt" Rusty since leaving, and definitely got the impression that the final peace vibe I got from him was indeed, final. Makes me happy to no end. No one deserves to be stuck in turmoil and pain on this plane. To those of you who responded, I want to say thank you for still being interested and willing to throw in your side of all this. Suicide is a terrible aspect of humanity and all it's done since Rusty's demise is get worse; especially among young people. Today there are lots of organizations available to help people at suicide risk, or those related to them. Please take advantage. So here's my plug.

If you or someone you know is at risk for suicide, call this number now. They can help. Thanks.

Sleeping-with-steve in The Entity Recurs
Hello Teomniscient,

You say, 'It was pitch dark some one was standing near the balcony of the terrace as that entity resembled the same appearance as me.' Members here may ask how could V see that the entity resembled you if it was pitch black? I was about to ask that but then I realised that the streets have street lanterns Infront of the houses and perhaps that why V was able to see the entity.

Anyway, all that aside, your post was similar to some I've read here and there online. I've also read how fevers and illness occur shortly after sightings. (Usually in Asia) Did your fever last a while? Hopefully you're better now.

It's hard to say if this occurrence has ceased or not. I know you are being optimistic thinking will never happen again, I'm crossing my fingers for you.

Wow, Bradbury's autograph? Lucky you! Let me know if you locate that story, because now it's sort of driving me a bit crazy.😉 When I say 'a long time ago', I mean late 60's, early 70s. I read a lot of sci-fi back then, also saw my share on TV, but I'm pretty sure it was something I read and not saw. Don't think it was the Martian Chronicles... Sigh, wish I could recall.
I imagined myself in your place. It was a good read. Thankyou ❤
Hi rorzy

It's definitely terrifying to live in a haunted house, but what's equally sad is the back story regarding that particular apartment and what happened inside it. I do hope that spirit finds some peace.
Hi Biblio

I have also experienced something similar to this which I posted a while back, usually I always try to find a logical explanation as well before I pin it down to being supernatural.

Greetings, Val.

I'll have to look for the story you mentioned. I don't immediately recall one about an alien opening portals, but I'll start with The Martian Chronicles & then try my Complete Short Stories of Ray Bradbury.

Sidenote: I had him sign the latter of these collections; he was a very nice and approachable man with a good sense of humor.

Greetings, all. Some responses are in order, and I'll put a few of them together here.

MrsRamsay: My wife slowed down the car *because* there was something on the crosswalk. She said that was her natural reaction to something being there, even though it was not tall enough to be a person (adult or teen out alone around dusk). The slowing of the car was what brought it to my attention.

CrimsonTopaz: Thanks for finding Rajine's story of a similar mist/fog apparition taking a geometrical shape. At least we're not alone in seeing something this peculiar.

Lady-glow: Thank you for reading. Even though it was mist in an unusual shape, it "felt" like an entity to me, which was pretty strange. Usually I get the mental impression of the entity, but no visual data. I had the sense that it was young and female, but I have nothing to substantiate that other than my instinct.

Sleeping-with-steve: Thanks for reading this tale. As I just mentioned to lady-glow, it did "feel" like an individual to me, even though it did not look like one.

Best to all,
Hi, Biblio! Your description puts me in mind of a story I read a long time ago. It may have been a Ray Bradbury short, but I won't swear to it. Anyway, that was pretty much the way he describes the alien made portals for interdimensional travel. Not saying that's what you saw, only the description, at least in my memory is similar. Which makes me wonder if he somewhat shared your experience at some point.
Personally, I've only seen one transparent object, which I described as a soap bubble. Outside of being very translucent, I don't think there's any commonality.
On the bright side - you have a witness, so not your imagination:)

Congratulations on your marriage.

What an unnerving way for you and your husband to start your life as a married couple!
I'm glad the dishonest landlord gave you back the money for the deposit.

In my opinion, the spirit wasn't trying to harm you, but I understand your decision for moving out of the place. Hopefully some future tenant will help this spirit to move on and move out of that house.

Thanks for sharing.
According to her profile DarkDaisy will be taking a break from YGS for awhile. So don't hold your breaths waiting for an answer.
From my point of view, it would be better if Sophie/Sophia never read this story... She might feel offended by the way you have described her: "about 14 years old almost 15... (If you spent a day with her not knowing her age you'd think she was 10 or something) "

I don't know if you're talking about her physical appearance, or if it is her personality but, either way, she may not like it. Specially since she's supposed to be 18 years old.

Why do I keep putting the wrong stuff. Her age is 18 now why do I put 14 years old?."

It's hard to answer such a question without pondering if you have been honest when presenting these facts.

Hello Biblio,

What a fascinating experience.

I don't have much to offer in terms of help or ideas of what it could have been. (Sorry) 😕

I just wanted to say I have heard this happen before to others. Rajine mentions something similar in his post as per the link my sister, (CrimsonTopaz) has shared.

Please keep us posted if you solve this mystery.

Best wishes,
SWS/Miandra 😘
Hi Biblio.

Intriguing experience, I have no idea what could it have been, but enjoyed reading your experience.

Thanks for sharing.

Excuse my absent writing skills. Being in the English department, you probably notice good writing skills in the first instance.
All that aside, I've being reading situations on here for about 2 years. I do remember someone putting up a situation about a fog hovering above their vehicle and the fog was no where else.
I have looked high and low and can't find who put that up on here. To begin with I thought it was Aussie Daz. I looked at his profile page and his situations and unless I missed it, it doesn't seem to be him. I'm sure my sister commented on that thread. I looked at her profile and the same thing, no sign of that situation.
I'll keep looking. Knowing me, I probably commented on the thread so I'll look at my comments too.
I really enjoyed reading about this situation you and your wife experienced.
Thank you sharing.
Hello aussiedaz, yes, it's been a while for sure, good to hear from you. The slow motion effect you mention is fascinating, I remember years ago witnessing an accident, an older couple wandering out into a lane and getting hit by another car (everyone was ok, no fatalities) while I and another friend were driving by and the whole thing went into slow motion, I can remember seeing the front headlights and grill being literally shattered and I could swear I saw the individual pieces scattering into the air and seeing all the spots they landed in on the road, it was the most bizarre experience!

As an aside, the consciousness existing outside the mind/body and the experiments you mentioned, perhaps that could explain premonitions/intuitive guidance and maybe even things like the Mandela effect. We 'receive' from whatever sources, constantly, like a radio tower, taking in multiple broadcasts. A lot of it, unless we become more aware gets lost in the 'signal noise' if that makes sense. As far as the Mandela effect or premonitions that maybe don't happen, like some of Da Vinci's, could be the mind including the 'unused portions' of the brain tuning into other realities/time lines etc and introducing that information into our consciousness.

Anyways good stuff for sure, thanks for sharing, I truly enjoy these thought provoking conversations with you! Hope you and yours have a great holiday season!

Sleeping-with-steve, good to hear from you and I appreciate the kind words!

CantunSEEit, great story, I appreciate your sharing and sorry if I hijacked your thread a little, but it led into some interesting thoughts relating to these types of encounters!

Glad tidings for a joyous holiday season however you all celebrate it.

Man, what your mother explained was scary as hell. Maybe you just experienced sleep paralysis

Greetings Mrs. Ramsay.

I, too, had the sense that the shape I saw was an entity, even though it was not particularly anthropomorphic. I'm pleased that your mother was able to attend your daughter's wedding and that you witnessed her presence.

For me, the fact that the shape was more geometrical in nature was the really unusual part. When I sense spirits without physically seeing them, I can tell where they are, how tall they are (or if they are standing/crouching), and which direction they are facing. This shape looked almost like a placeholder for the entity I was sensing.

My hometown is one of the older ones in the Farmington River Valley of Connecticut. A friend of mine keeps telling me that I have to visit the cemetery in the center of town to see the older graves at the top of the hill. It's on my never-ending "to do" list!

I'll have to ask my wife later about why she slowed down to begin with and I'll get back to you on that.

MrsRamsay (guest) in Observed On A Crosswalk
So interesting that you discerned this, and that your wife noticed something also, even while she was driving. I wonder if she has an idea what caused her to slow down? Perhaps just an intuitive sense that you both got at the same time?

I believe I've sensed if not quite seen something similar a few times. Honestly, it's the kind of thing that can easily go unnoticed. I am always wondering if my writer's imagination or my love of history causes me to go here.

My eldest daughter got married in 2017 and it was a late April, southern garden wedding at an antebellum mansion built in 1840. She walked down the aisle at 7:30 pm, but in the first five minutes I realized the minister had probably never done a wedding before as he was talking about his own baldness. Sitting in the front row in the midst of thinking, "Wow, this is one of the worst wedding officiants I've ever heard..." things all of a sudden got very heavy and quiet (my perception) -- enough that I became aware of "something going on." While the minister's droning kept on and as he finished up, I became distracted and noticed some kind of mist, barely perceptable, up in the air just in front of me and to the right, above and in front of the couple who were about to say their actual vows. It caused me to actually LOOK UP instead of at my daughter. All of a sudden, her long veil blows up and sort of hangs in the air before being pulled off and flying towards us in the front row! Just then (at the strange time of 7:40ish) the bells at the Baptist church next door rang twice, though no one else seems to remember that fact except me. Of course, everyone got a good laugh, but I knew EXACTLY what had happened. (and I'm sorry for the long story, when all you wondered is have we seen a mist thing). My mom had died in 2013 after being very, very close to my daughters growing up. At the same time, my daughter had initially not wanted to wear a veil with her dress, which became a little contentious between us in the weeks before her date. A week before the wedding, she finally caved... Called me and said, "Ok mom, I'll go with a veil." So the night of her wedding, we of course made certain that veil was ON her head, with at least 3 combs holding it into her expensive hairstyle. BUT... When that veil flew off in a wind that didn't really move anything else around her, I knew immediately that was MOM, and she was saying to me, "OK Laura, she wore the veil down the aisle and throughout the weird minister's commentary, and now she gets to take it off!" Mom always spoiled her. She was always the Good Cop and I was always the Bad Cop, if you follow...

But that's just one of the places I've noticed a slight mist. Which by the way you can vaguely see in the wedding photos taken from two angles. I can see clearly where the lace of the veil comes up to a point in mid air, while it's still attached to my daughter's head. And there is a mist there, as though a hand but not in the shape of a hand. The actual "mist" to me is more of a difference in the air itself and shows as a slightly lighter spot in the photos.

Not sure exactly what CT town you're in, but I have a lot of ancestors who founded some of those old towns there almost 400 years ago. The history in and near them is riveting to me, and I cannot wait until I can visit (never been north of NYC). The amazing history of the Old Connecticut Path and the Puritan settlers who followed it to adventure in the New World really stirs the imagination, especially if half your family tree is made up of those families! Thanks for your interesting story!

Greetings, RC!

No, it was not a foggy evening, nor was it raining, which is part of the reason we were surprised to see this manifestation "standing" upright in the crosswalk. Sorry I didn't make that clear in the original narrative.

As for the "adult enough to concede" statement, that's something I've had to come to realize the long way around, and it's something that I occasionally need to remind myself, too!

Biblio, I can only say that I personally have not seen such a thing before. At least, not that I'm aware of.

Also: "I'm adult enough to concede". This really jumped out at me. Dealing with dad's cancer, and his attitude, plus some other things I could mention but won't, I really wish people would understand: Our choices/actions have consequences. And because we choose what we did, the consequences are our responsibility. No blaming someone else.

But back to being on topic, a pyramid or cone shaped mist? Was it a foggy commute that evening?
