Ghost stories comments: Page 10

It appeared on the wall itself and when I saw it it disappeared in one go in the wall. I don't understand but that night I felt that someone was eyeing me secretly. It was indeed an unsuspicious night for me.
A dark shadow that, I'm assuming, has something of a human shape to it. Did it appear to be on the wall itself or standing in the room as shadow people are said to? Have to be careful asking questions since I do not want to lead you to a specific answer, but to better describe what was happening.
Ladyglow, it's hard to say in regard to that question! I read, in a book by the renowned parapsychologist, Hans Holzer, that we all have free-will choice. Not only on 'this' plane, but in the next. If a spirit 'wants' to remain they, simply, will do so.
It depends on the individual. However, you'd think that they 'would' want to move on since there really isn't any future in being a ghost.
Why stick around in empty, run-down surroundings when you could go on to those that you love & loved you.
Then again, it depends on the person. I heard it said by a well-known psychic that if someone wasn't a nice person in life, that they won't change in the afterlife.
Like I said it depends on the person, their individual personality/circumstances, & their own personal strength of will.
Some move on effortlessly, while others are bound for their own personal reasons to a residence, or a particular area. Such as the land.
Just putting forth some possible scenarios from what I've learned, & to some degree, experienced for myself. There are no concrete answers here!

Thanks for reading!

Hello ARD.

I know these are not your own experiences and, perhaps, you won't be able to elaborate more on the following points that are not clear to me.

About the hairbrush story.

A hairbrush is a rather too mundane an item to be attached to, not saying that I consider this impossible, but I'm curious if Mary ever asked Eileen for her hairbrush while still alive.

Also, did they explain to you how come the brush happened to be in Elieen's wardrobe? Did Elieen know why the hairbrush was so important to her sister?

I mean, the hairbrush seemed to have been a very precious object to Mary and she seemed to be well aware of its whereabouts, so perhaps she left/forgot it after a visit to Elieen and Thomas' place or did the wardrobe come originally from Mary and Elieen's house? But then, why wouldn't she ask her sister for her hairbrush back once she realized it was missing?

As for the quilt... I hope it got washed before using it! If it had been me, its musty smell would have been enough to keep me awake all night!
What an unforgettable place to live at, though not for the right reasons.

I wonder if the ghost was able to move on once the place was demolished or if he is still around recreating the location he remained attached to.

Thanks for sharing.
I don't know whether this comment reach you but you should consider protecting your house with some yantras prepared by knowledgeable people. And never stop prayers to god. I advise you to get sudarshan yantra/prathyangira yantra/shoolni yantra/ aghora yantra. Pray to goddess kali maa and aghora moorthi. Your problem will be sloved
Rajine, That's right! They never admitted that there was something going on that they were not able to explain, but rather fluffed it off by promising to allegedly 'look into it'. Ha!
The landlord never did get back to me. Did they honestly think that we would just overlook it, & continue to live there with all that going on above us without a satisfactory explanation?
They 'wanted' their money though. Just like the house on Erie Road, the landlord was 'always' there with his hand out for his rent.
Like I said. It was an annoying beginning for a newlywed couple in their first place!

Thanks for reading & take care! 😊 😁
Seems like someone had a very intense attachment to that specific apartment, but from the looks of it, the landlord seems to be money greedy.
Just googled Celia Heart it's a name of a character in the video game called harvest Moon.
Whatever your friends saw must have scared him real bad for him to refuse to talk about it ever again and telling you that was evil maybe it's better to be ignorant of the situation for now unless it happens again that's my recommendation.
Saw the image of the door and it didn't look like a face it looked like something that happens the doors when exposed to environmental weather or I'm not sure what the proper word for it I suffer from mild cases of Dyslexia so the best I described it looks natural I've seen would look like that a couple times I'm sorry you went through that.
Hello Twilight1011,

I'm glad you're enjoying reading from that astrology site.

I can stay up hours reading the astrology content.

Lost Voyage, Thank you for your compliments! I always was a good writer in school. Going all the way back to English class.
However, I consider myself more of a lyricist since I write songs primarily being a musician/singer. I recorded a CD several years ago, & the guys I recorded it with have asked me to do another one after I write some more songs. It was fun. I wrote songs dedicated to the memory of my late husband. 'That' writing & keeping busy with my music 'helped' me to get through my loss tremendously.
As for the house in Willoughby. Yes, the apartment house was located in a different section of Willoughby, we did cruse by it several times after we vacated. The landlords never told us 'anything'. Like the jerk landlord of the house on Erie Road, all they were interested in was collecting the rent. I'm quite 'sure' that they were well 'aware' of the situation there but wouldn't ever 'tell' anyone. Let alone reveal it to prospective tenants,
Oh, no! They just kept it clean, but only came in the daytime to do that. What does 'that' tell you? They wanted to get in & get out quickly.
To my knowledge, after we moved out the lady, & her husband followed shortly after. After a few years, we went by that place only to find it was torn down. I mean gone. A brand-new structure was erected on the site. Only it was, no longer, apartments. It was now a small office building. To my knowledge, it still is.
I'll be submitting a couple more incidents on here in future posts.
Like I've said. I've had paranormal occurrences happen throughout my life. However, the most frightening one was the house on Erie Road in Willoughby. In retrospect, it shouldn't surprise me since there are a lot of homes there that are Century Homes. They even have plaques on them designating them as such. Therefore, it should be no surprise that a lot of them 'may' be haunted owing to the history of the structures. I hope I was able to answer some of your questions here!

Thanks, Again, For Reading! 😁 😁
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Our Haunted First Apartment
Hello Linjahaha, what a fascinating encounter, you sure seem to have the lucky streak (with a sly grin) of ending up in some pretty supernaturally active places over time!

It's sad that this man couldn't move on after his death, although from the sounds of it, his end was swift and sudden, so like Chester, I agree with you, he may not be aware he's passed on from this plane. He sounds like he still wasn't satisfied with the place even beyond death! I have to wonder what would have happened if someone had moved in, he probably would have lost it (if a ghost can lose it, since they don't really have anything left to lose) when someone came in and started messing with the 'place' he was already unhappy with. Of course when and if he becomes aware he's passed on, perhaps he would be eager to move on if he was so unhappy with the apartment in life! Most likely he threw off a 'get out of here' vibe to any potential renters which would explain why no one ever returned.

Did you ever follow up with the landlords and find out why they acted in such a bizarre manner when you complained about the noises? I mean why didn't they just come clean that the place was vacant? Their response leads me to believe they knew about the strange goings on in that apartment. I mean they should have known you would just keep hearing the noises and complain again. Did they ever rent it out? Did the old gentleman you spoke with next door, ever note anything strange about the place? What ever became of the house itself, do you know?

Hopefully you don't mind the questions, but this story has tickled my curiosity for sure! It was a most enjoyable read, you have a unique way or writing/relating your stories that pulls the reader in! I look forward to hearing more from you on your paranormal adventures!
DarriuxDarkk in The Gettysburg Soldier
Would it be possible that you and the other girls actually saw a reenactor or of some sorts and probably just that one girl missed it?

When that one girl asked you who you are waving at, did you see the boy actually vanish on sight?
The light as a feather trick intrigued me. Do you guys have to chant it while imagining them floating to work or just simply say the magic words and done. How does it feel when you tried to lift your friend with just your finger? Was it heavy? Was there static feeling? So curious.

Anyway in regards to ouija board, it's been known from time and time again that it is always a bad idea to play with those things. I always think that if you invite to play with spirits expect to get spooked especially if the ones you made contact with are mischievous ones.
Twilight1011 in Lost In My Room
MiaG - Before I forget again πŸ˜… I keep meaning to thank you for sharing that site with me πŸ˜„ The one you had sent me, is actually the exact kind I've been trying to find online, so that's awesome that you were able to share it with me 😊 The one's I had done, didn't have it where it used your birth time, and I knew there was a better detailed version of it, if you could apply your birth time. I couldn't ever seem to come across it though. I feel the one you had sent me, is way more on point, with most of it's description of me. Thank you again, for sharing that website with me.
WOW! Thank you for sharing your very emotional and very frightening journey. I truly believe everything you said. I've always have been a believer in paranormal/hauntings/EVP, etc. (And I learned never to attempt or even be around EVP from the movie 'White Noise')

Although I have never experienced anything of the sort (except 2 separate times with my deceased mother (one in a dream and another in reality) and both of those encounters were very pleasant, welcomed and cherished). I'm a firm believer of what one brings or welcomes into one's life (be it positive or negative) will easily manifest into one's reality (be it positive of negative). I love paranormal movies, so I watch them. I love paranormal stories, so I read them. I will take a deep dive on 'paranormal ticktok' occasionally. But I do this in moderation. And if I feel I've watche and/or read is 'too much', I will clean and bless my home (smudging), and will call on God to protect me, my loved ones and my hoome. Evil is out there - everywhere. It's up to us as individuals as to how we react to it.

I'm curious though, you mentioned in the comments you have "tried various means of expelling these malevolent spirits". What all have you done? You wrote this back in 2016. Do you still hear these voices?
Thank you Darkangel73, The_Last_Voyage_11 and Rajine. And to answer your question Rajine. Rice does work. It especially works for SIM cards and sometimes a phone, depending on how long the phone was submerged. What happened with my father, cell phones weren't what they are now. The phones were only meant for making and receiving calls and texting (using the old ABC/123 way - it was 2011). We never tried to use the phone he that he dropped in the bucket of water, I just ordered him a brand new phone.
CrimsonTopaz monkeys are adorable from a distance. If you get close they WILL try to take your stuff. Monkeys like random trinkets.
FarEndofSpectrum,Thanks for your reply.
I've seen on tv documentaroes and photos from relatives who have visited your country, monkeys seem to feel quite comfortable mixing in with us humans. Lol
Its always cute to watch, but unless I experience it firsthand, I won't know.
That's a beautiful story ❀ to know our loved ones are still watching over us ❀
Dear Lost, & Rajine, Thank you again for seeing the wisdom-I 'hope' I 'have'some-offered up in my post!
I'd like to think, after all these years, that I do have a modicum of wisdom, & knowledge to offer.
Learning the hard usually is the best teacher. Unless it comes back to bite you. I hope our younger readers pay some heed to our experiences.
On 'this' site I 'can' share my true accounts without being thought of as cuckoo, lol!

Thanks, & the Very Best! 😁 😁
L.V., & Rajine, Thank you both for reading the post, & the comments. Incidentally, the girl in blue died in 1933, but I was trying to be vague out of respect for the family. They discovered her true identity in the late 90's actually.
If you go on Google, & type in 'The Girl in Blue-Willoughby, Ohio', it'll bring up the entire story. I know that people can 'get' that information from Google. I'm imparting this to you as you're both interested, & are very respectful of the story regarding what transpired with her.
I assure you that 'she' did exist, & Lamebrain Larry got what he 'asked' for in my opinion, LOL!

Again, Thank you, &
All the Best! 😊 😊
The_Lost_Voyage_11
Hi there!
Yup it's nothing bad. As you said I might have been hearing the ancient Ainu chanting.

Rajine
Hey!
True, I think I should let it be the way it is.
I should live it, respectfully.
Could be the spirits of the past doing their rituals even in the afterlife, but if it's not happening inside your home I think you should let it be, just close your doors and windows and curtains at night.
I always say that our loved ones who have passed on are always around us even though we can't see them, but they are here, guiding us.

Does the cellphone in the rice actually work? I always thought it was a joke πŸ€”
I feel like this is just one of many unidentified "ghosts" from all over the world, we have a few here in South Africa as well, but I hope that now that she's known she can finally rest
Ouija boards or basically anything that calls spirits should never be used, we don't know what we letting in when we do...
Also apologies to both of you for the tardiness in replying.
CrimsonTopaz it is definitely possible that fatigue and long hours caused both of us to experience those things, however late night has never been a problem for me before this. I don't need 8 hours of sleep to function, I'm a college student.

Sundarbans are in the southwest of the nation. I'm in the northeast. Very unlikely a tiger found its way there. It's more likely to find a bear around these parts. Or a monkey if it fancies a non-veg meal.
Rajine I don't know what he saw. He won't spill. But it's believed here that talking about evil things can cause them to cross paths with you.
Giffy in The Lime Tree
What an amazing and deeply sad story. Very credibly written. Thank you for sharing it.
Hello blosomes, intriguing story to say the least!

Based on your narrative, perhaps it would just be best to keep an eye out and see if anything further develops, it doesn't sound sinister. Other than your cat alerting you to something, it doesn't seem as if, other than losing a little sleep, anything was disturbed.

It's possible you may have heard something from the past. Maybe some kind of ceremony took place on the land your current home occupies. If that's so it's just an echo from the past and nothing to be too concerned with. When I was a boy, I awakened to drums beating that sounded like they were close by, but no one else heard anything and my parents suggested it might have been the kids down the street partying, but I never heard anything like it before or since and it was too close to have been what they thought, especially considering they didn't hear anything!

My feeling is at this point, what you heard is not malicious in any way, you could just keep alert and see if it happens again and if anything else accompanies it.
Hello Pegasus593, welcome to YGS and thanks for sharing your touching story!

It is nice to know our loved one's watch out for us even from the other side and your story reaffirms it. It also speaks volumes to the connection between your parents! Love transcends death and never ends!

I so appreciate hearing your story, it's a wonderful addition to the many on this site and one with a positive spin as well!
Hello Linjahaha, thank you for sharing another great story!

I appreciate the footnote too, regarding the girl in blue. Although it was sad what happened in her life, at least part of the mystery at least regarding her identity was resolved, hopefully it not only puts her family at ease but her spirit as well! She is the only one who truly knows the circumstances around her death, but the revelation of her identity helps a community and perhaps will end the stories and curiosity's of those less informed. Her wanderings were not something to be tampered with by the living, with the exception of someone maybe trying to help her get home, but most who visited the site were probably looking for a cheap thrill and in the case of this Larry (hilarious reference to the three stooges) got more than he bargained for! I actually wonder if they came across the so called lover of this girl in blue, perhaps that's what they saw?

Ironically my dad had a friend named Larry, and while nothing like the man you spoke of, he was a good friend but still unwittingly participated in a supernatural encounter with my dad and some other friends, although they weren't looking for it! Larry is now my uncle!
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in The Slumber Party Incident
Hello Linjahaha, a cautionary tale for sure, thanks for sharing!

Most kids (and many adults) don't really understand the whole concept of Ouija boards and seances, to them, they're curious but it's almost like a game. Unfortunately like the old 'don't put your hand on a hot stove' wisdom, many have to learn the hard way. They open portals they cannot close and let in all kinds of spiritual energies and beings/entities. I've seen normal houses, suddenly become very haunted after just one session! What's worse is in the case of teenager's, the spirits let loose by the session can feed off all that pent up and developing teen energy to manifest everything from horrifying visions to moving objects around. I can imagine it would be a full time job for a group of people, maybe a small army to go around the world closing all these open portals! I wonder if it influences much of what we see going on in the world, that is curious.

In either case, nowadays, people have even more options available to summon up spirits, from these apps developed to 'speak' with the spiritual realm to detect changes in atmosphere and temperature. If people go looking for trouble, there are plenty of ways to find it beyond Ouija boards and seances!

I've had my fair share of paranormal experiences, and most of mine are tame compared to what other people have encountered, but still I would never attempt to mess with a ghost or conjure up one! I'm respectful of sites like the one containing the portal I wrote about and even making sure I protect myself adequately before writing or speaking about the paranormal. On sites like these, we can only speak about our experiences and offer up our wisdom and advice as well as intuition, but it's up to those that read it whether they want to take it or learn by their own experience. Ironically experience can be quite a teacher, however the price paid can be high!

It's always good to hear from you my friend!
I need to explain, Aleshanee in this story is actually Aleshanee the second. My first Aleshanee is gone from a cat flu 😒
Sorry for the confusion.
KnightRaven in The Haunting On Midway
virulentpeach, That is what I'm talking about, only creepier. It's obviously explained as pareidolia but these events happening all at once made us feel as if there was more to it. We could have moved back upstairs and I only had one month left on my lease, but we just said forget this place and moved.

The fire was 3-4 years after we moved and it wasn't a big thing in the newspaper, so I don't know what happened afterward. The old man upstairs had lived there for about 20 years. He might have known something or had some type of premonition.

Not only do I think that place was haunted, I think the whole neighborhood might be in some type of energy vortex.
virulentpeach in The Haunting On Midway
[at] KnightRaven:

The fire, what was the "officiaL" cause? Was it known? I wonder if it was paranormal too. I am even wondering if the "smoke" the neighbor saw that you did not see had something to do with it in some way.

Face in the door I assume looked like this? Https://i.imgur.com/8Fv4T.jpg If so that is terrifying. It would creep me out so much and I'd feel like it was staring at me! Do you think this was paranormal?
KnightRaven in The Haunting On Midway
The fire was in the paper at the time, so we drove past to see what happened. It appeared as if the fire started in my old upstairs apartment, which was the nicest of what I'd seen. The landlord did say he was trying to get the old man upstairs to move to a different rental so he could remodel his apartment. I believe it was supernatural but who knows.

We didn't notice the face on the door while moving in. It would has been open most of the time anyway. While we were staring at the door watching tons of roaches crawl in through the cracks, we saw a large elongated face in the wood grain. The face looked like it was screaming and trapped inside for some reason. It was a newer flat design than the original doors, so it had been replaced at some point in time. We saw it the next day when went to get our belongings and even pointed it out to the people that were with us.
blosomes in Back To Where I Am
Hi Crimson Topaz!
Well most probably... Since I was having jetlags days before now that I think about it...

RCRuskin
Hmm... Interesting one.
My sister seems fine though and I hope nothing bad would ever happen to her...

Monkeyishh
Emm... You need to talk to the web master for that not me.

Rajine
Yes as most have already suggested.
Probably a doppelganger... A trickster... Or maybe just me having a waking dream...
virulentpeach in The Haunting On Midway
This reminds me of the feeling at an apartment I lived in during university. There was a lot of energy and the house felt alive. That's what it sounds like here.

Do they know why the building burned down? I would be interested to know if you think it was paranormal.

What does a crazy face in the wood grain of the door mean? I wonder what that looks like but it would creep me out so bad! Was it always there or did it randomly appear?
RussLesco, That is very sad indeed. Trooper sounded like he was close to both of you. Following you both upstairs every night is the trait of a loyal dog. It's also sad that your other dog has arthritis. If trooper couldn't go into the study or in the loft, it's quite possible he sensed something that hasn't made itself known to you for whatever reason that be. Maybe Trooper sensed another animal who passed away that he knew, who perhaps turned up to show him the way? Its hard to say what the little guy saw. May he RIP.
Thanks for sharing this sad memory of Trooper.
FarEndofSpectrum, Not sleeping, walking for a few miles, and trying to study for long hours is enough to make the healthiest of people fatigued and light headed.
Your profile says your from Bangladesh. Did this happen there? Because, in some areas of Bangladesh, ie The Sundarbans National Park, the Bengal Tiger is often seen around the mangroves, and they have been known to make their way to built-up areas too. Do you think that's what your friend saw. In the dark, it would definitely be a really frightening vision.
Linjahaha

When I think back on some of my reckless immature behavior I often wonder, what was I thinking or how am I still alive πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚ I guess I have to thank my guardian angel for that.

Thanks and take care as well...
Rajine, That's so true. It's almost like the 'common sense' part of us isn't developed enough when we're young.
Ah, the follies of youth. We all go through it!

Take care! 😊 😊
Animals generally tend to see what we cannot, cats usually just don't care πŸ˜‚ you might want to get it checked out though.
That is creepy, I wonder what that could be, and why does your friend this that, talking about it could summon it's attention?
You right about the last part, when one is young common sense goes out of the window and is replaced by recklessness, I suppose the old lady had an attachment to the place.
I can imagine how much of a shock that must have been to you, I wrote about a similar thing, on this site, that happened to my brother and cousins years ago, from your narrative it must have been a doppelganger.
monkeyishh in Back To Where I Am
Hello! This is a really good story! I'm thinking of making a collection of short stories and I was wondering if I could use this for a chapter if I properly cite it?
Dear Crimson, Thank you very much. I am flattered that you liked it so much.
Incidentally, I added 'you' to my favorites, also!

Take care, & all the Best! 😁 😁
RCRuskin in Back To Where I Am
A doppelganger is a spirit that imitates/is a double of a living person.

So a trickster spirit, as Biblio suggested, that imitated your sister.
CrimsonTopaz in Back To Where I Am
Blosomes,
How unusual. As RCRuskin says in his 3rd possibility, maybe you were heavy in sleep, got up but still not fully awake?
As Bibliothecarius mentioned, it doesn't explain the light unless you did actually switched it off before going to the bathroom.?
From my understanding Doppelganger are a double of a person but who isn't that person and therefore if a Doppelganger broke in and escaped while you were in the bathroom, there would be evidence of the break-in.
This is a tricky situation to figure out.
Hopefully you will get to the bottom of it.
Thanks for sharing.
Linjahaha,
Sorry to hear John is no longer with you. May he RIP.
This was a real adventure to read. Boys will be boys and John and his mates sound like they had a really scary time with the spirit of the secretary and the adding machine.
I put this post into my favourites. Thanks for sharing it.
Thank you, Lost Voyage: I 'almost' wish "I" could've been there for 'that', except I probably would have had the you-know-what scared out of me.
I think John was right about her as well. Maybe, that office was where she felt appreciated and happy for a career. It's possibly a very pleasant memory that she was reluctant to let go of.
The building was demolished long ago. I think there is a park, or housing there now. I'm not sure.
I hope that lady finally moved on from there to be with her family where she can be happy for eternity and not worry about going to work now!

Glad to Hear from You as Always and Thanks! 😁 😁
Sorry if I do not response quickly to a question but will reply as soon as I can. The image I captured on the trail camera I can't explain, I wasn't home when it occurred. Maybe whatever she was moving in the building disturbed it I can only guess. I know it has not happened again and would truly have liked for the picture I sent in to have been added to the story. The image on the trail camera I believe was meant to be seen as the camera is not out but occasionally to capture again mainly the deer. I have showed it to others and only got an oh my but was hoping to get some better feedback. There have been many times in my past I have seen things I did not share with anyone involving spirits. This incident happened almost two years ago. Since then the only other thing I have discovered is in the room I keep my old toy collection. I collect various toys from 50's and previous. My son gave me an extra indoor security camera from a set he had bought and I placed it in that room after a few strange things happened mainly for curiosity. Many times I reviewed the footage and it had caught orbs moving about. They would come out one of the walls or ceiling and disappear through another, sometime a few and at others times many. The one that really got me was the one that came out as a small speck of light and got bigger before going through the front wall.
Hello Linjahaha, another great story!

Many of these old buildings, especially ones where a lot of people have either worked or passed through (train stations, hospitals, etc) are sure to have a lot of activity. There is a great deal of history in these areas and not all of it was made public. I feel that John's assessment of what he saw was pretty spot on. I also feel 'she' showed herself at the window to make sure the boys got the point and not to return, since some would later try to rationalize the earlier incident away. It sure must have been unnerving for the boys to witness that adding machine working by itself!

Still and all a fascinating recollection, very detailed as always.

Thanks for sharing!

blosomes in Back To Where I Am
Oh, I just realize that I have not answer any of Bibliothecarius' question about whether there were any complaints, well its kind of a yes and kind of a no.

Its not about this event that I experience but its about my sister. I heard that she was having calls from one of our neighbor in our home flat that it is kind of noisy during the night... It could not be Henrique because... You know he is now an old cat and will not be all over active especially when there is no one playing with him. It can't be my sister since she works at night as I have written here... And that time she recieve the call was not even her off day πŸ˜•
blosomes in Back To Where I Am
RCRuskin

Thanks for commenting twice and sorry for the late respond...
A trickster doppelganger? Do you mean a living spirit by that? But my sister was working during the night? Can you tell me more about it? I might be wrong...

Biliothecarius

True, the light was on but I remembered that my sister seemed bored... Like went someone is stare watching a long going show.
Yes, that was the reason I asked my sister if she was thinking of something deep... Rice crackers... I can't tell now if she was just holding on the bag or was actually munching on...

Well now that I think of it I might be having a waking dream... But I am not really sure πŸ˜•
RCRuskin in Back To Where I Am
A trickster doppelganger maybe? And I did somehow miss the lights being on, Biblio, but I will admit I've had some weird dreams, such as one where I woke up and went into work, only for my alarm to go off. So dreaming the lights were on is, imo, a possibility.

Hope to hear back from you, Roy.
Hi no_name_face,

Yes I am from Negros Occidental, somewhere in the south. Are you from this area too? And yes I am a native "hiligaynon speaker". Apologies as I am not so active for the past months or years, been busy with a lot of changes in my life. I might resume sharing my experiences soon.
Bibliothecarius in Back To Where I Am
Greetings, Roy.

You do have interesting experiences.

My thoughts were similar to RCRuskin's, but I wondered if it could have been some sort of trickster spirit. It seems odd to me that it chose to appear to be eating your rice crackers, but that the real crackers were untouched. To the best of my knowledge, a doppelgΓ€nger interacts with the real world creating change in the environment; that is to say if it appeared to eat the crackers, they would have been opened and eaten.

That said, a trickster spirit seems like a bit of a stretch, too, unless other odd or unexplained events occurred during your summer at home. Did anyone else complain about unusual happenings or unexplained experiences?

That does leave RC's suggestion of the waking dream state as a valid explanation, but it doesn't account for the lights being on when you passed through the first time, but being off when you returned from the bathroom. Even in a dream state, I'd have trouble imagining that you dreamed the lights being on.

This is definitely a peculiar tale.

Best,
Biblio.

The Lost Voyage - Your thoughts & theories of the afterlife, are very much welcomed 😊 I can't claim one theory to be the correct one, verses the other. So I'm open to hear whatever someone may believe. I doubt with what little I've learned so far about the other side, and what happens, that I've barely even scratched the surface. There's most likely way more to it, than we will ever truly know. But I think what you've said also makes sense. My brother had spent most of his childhood, with a disease, until it took his life at 16yrs old. For the longest time, I wondered if he had even crossed over, as I wondered if he possibly had unfinished business because of the life he had to live. What you said about someone that was sick for a long time in our world, may have to go through a sort of healing process on the other side, made me wonder if that's possibly what my brother had to go through. I found it weird how he never really seemed to visit in anyway, to let us know that he's doing good now, and is happy. Which was why I started to worry if he ever did actually cross over then. I'm still not fully sure to that answer yet, but assuming the reading I done recently, was indeed him, that was communicating to me, then he might have crossed over, and was able to grow to the young man form, that he was meant to grow too. At least that's how I felt his energy was like. It didn't feel like the little teenage boy that I once knew in life. It felt a little older, like 20's. I wish I could know for sure, but maybe someday I will. I'm very interested in the unexplained myself, and the paranormal world. I feel there's way more to all of it, than what we know, and love being able to discuss the possibilities of it all πŸ˜„

It definitely meets the qualification of strange. I can think of three possible explanations.

1. Doppelganger
2. Some kind of time slip. (Keep an eye out for your sister eating your rice snacks.)
3. Some kind of waking dream where, even though you were awake, and moving about, your brain still produced a dream experience.
Talk about an extensively detailed story Plaza.

I've got to say, I am still reading, and reading, and reading it. In fact I'm up to chapter 71 of 105 chapters approximately, leaving me a ton more to read. (⁠◔⁠‿⁠◔⁠)

I am still yet to read you recent comment.

Let's hope I can contribute to this story soon.

You have gone to a lot of trouble to publish this story Plaza, which is quite nearly a little novel. (⁠◠⁠‿⁠◕⁠)

In the meantime, I am ploughing through.

I am trying to avoid your sexual encounter with Lisa because I think that's too personal for this site, but the rest of your story is interesting.

I feel for you having to miss out on so much, not have bus fairs, and jump from home to home. You sound like an emotionally strong man as a result of life's hurdles and no doubt better off having experienced some of those growth lessons. I am not referring to the hard times of not having money for bus fair and shifting from home to home. No one deserves to go through that kind of pain. Sorry you went through that mate.

Kent, (β½ΝˆΛ™Μ‘βΎΛ”Μ‰β½Λ™Μ‘βΎΝˆ)
Lost Voyage, Thank you so much for your comments! I always enjoy hearing about your insightful theories. I really do appreciate them.
I am aware of what is called the residual haunting effect. Where what we see is actually like a tape recording. Only it is recorded in the ether of the atmosphere to be played back time and again under the right atmospheric conditions.
This incident seemed to me, anyway, to be intelligent interaction.
He reacted to our presences. He even smiled as he waved to us. I felt so sad for him though. He was so young. Just a kid.
However, our teacher pointed out that a big majority of the soldiers were barely out of school when they were fighting the Civil War. Over 50, 000 in just Gettysburg perished on that field.
That is just in 'that' region. The cumulative amount that perished from fighting in the other areas must be staggering to say the least.
Yes. It was a fascinating experience for me and the others. Something that we'll never forget. For sure, I haven't as this account proves.
If I can find the time off from working & someone to accompany me, I'd like to make another trip to Gettysburg. It's beautiful out there in the Summertime and very thought provoking to know what took place out there during the early beginnings of our Country.
You could say it was a very spiritual experience!

Thank you again and all the Best! 😁 😁

Hello Twilight1011, I just wanted to comment and share on what you had posted regarding your experiences around your mother-in-law, and also to pass on my condolences, I'm sorry for your loss.

What I will relay here is my own belief/experiences, which offer another perspective and so as not to infringe on your own beliefs and your spiritual growth.

When we pass from this lifetime, there can be a period of reintegration. Most people figure that once we go 'home' we're complete again and everything's fine. That's not the absolute truth. I know for me when I lost my aunt many years ago, she had been struggling with cancer and was out of it pretty good when her time came. It took some time before I could sense her presence and when I did, it was different. What I learned is she went through a sort of 'healing' when she crossed over, not the same kind of healing we think of here on earth, but nonetheless a healing, a sort of readjustment to being spirit without form. She had a rough time at the end and there was unfinished business. In essence she became herself fully again and that's why her energy felt different, it was no longer weighed down with her earthly struggles.

So what you said makes sense on many different levels. I don't know the details regarding your mother-in-laws passing, but I know that depending on how sick a person is when they pass, how concerned they are with the loved ones they left behind and how attached they are to their physical life/form, it can all affect how quickly they pass and can integrate the life they just lived back into spirit again. That's why so many talk about the 'life review' when they cross over. Spirit also takes time to integrate into a human body when they spend that time in the womb prior to birth.

The other thing is what you had spoken of regarding evolution and spiritual growth. It's true, as a spirit/soul we never stop growing and evolving regardless of which side of the veil we are on. It's why we come here in form to begin with, to grow, to evolve, to experience life and express ourselves in these 'limited' bodies. As spirit we 'know' everything there is to know, but knowing something is not the same as experiencing it, only with knowing and experience, is true knowledge formed. It's kind of like a how to book on running software on your computer, you can memorize the book, but until you apply that knowledge by getting into the software and working with it, it doesn't truly make sense, it can almost seem like a foreign language!

We are curious by nature, that is one of the core essence qualities of spirit and we take with us into these human bodies. Children exemplify this quality quite well, it's part of how they can sense see spirits and ghosts so easily! Until they grown older, and out of it, per society's rules, yet that curiosity, that child like wonder of it all and those wild imaginations are part of who/what we are, they are soul qualities!

Anyways enough of my rambling, I felt it might be helpful to weigh in as you're exploring some interesting topics I love to speak about. I love to talk about and explore the supernatural/paranormal worlds, but I'm also fascinated by all kinds of unexplained phenomena and all manners of spirituality as well as quantum physics/mechanics that plays right into all of it, it's all connected!

Hello HiloHaole, welcome to YGS, I appreciate you sharing your incredible account!

I echo what others have stated, and also that she 'knew' you were sensitive enough to help her. She lured you to the tree and although I'm sure the smell was unpleasant for sure, she knew you would find out what it was and unearth her secret.

Justice was served, her killer may not be caught, but her fate known, her family always left to wonder, finally has some resolve, some peace. For her I suspect it was the ONLY reason she stuck around, waiting for the right person (you) to help find her remains. I believe and sincerely hope, with her business here on earth concluded, that she's moved onto the peace she deserves.

Amazing story, thanks for sharing!
Twilight1011 in Lost In My Room
MiaG - I'm very much into astrology myself πŸ˜„ and have done my astrology chart awhile back ago now. I learned my moon sign is Aries, and found it really almost on point, of how much my astrology chart, describes my personality. I'd like to learn more on astrology stuff though, to where I'm able to fully understand it all, and know how I'm affected by each of the moons phases. Also, when it comes to numerology, I discovered I'm an 11 (if you're able to accept a 2 digit number as your numerology number, because I've learned some won't consider it as one, since it's not a single digit number), but if I do go with my single digit numerology number, it's 2. Which from what I've read from both, still pretty much describes me to a t πŸ˜… I was amazed how both go on about me being highly intuitive, as I am. But don't feel bad for what all I had to go through! It may have been very hard in that time period, to have to go through, but to know what I do now, I'm able to look back on it all, and see how much it has helped me become who I am today. I've read where going through that type of pain, is what helped me to be able to be more understanding and caring towards others, as to go through it yourself, you want to be able to help other's not suffer as much as you may have, or how it helps you view the world itself, very differently than most. I didn't want to have people pity me, for the childhood I had. I chose to use it as a lesson in my life, that I needed to go through, so I can be who I am now. It's a blessing and a curse at times unfortunately, to think and feel so deeply than normal. But it has helped me know who to trust, and who not too, as well as saved me from only God knows what. As much as the negative side sucks to endure, I still wouldn't change having the ability I have.

Hello Linjahaha, what a fascinating and well written account. Your stories always have such detail!

I wouldn't be surprised if more people in your group saw the same man but as you said were afraid to comment on it. Even the young girl who asked, may have asked because she too saw it, but was unsure of what she was looking at and was looking for validation. I can't tell you how many times, the first person in the group to ask a similar question always admits later to seeing it as well. Of course I can't say for sure, but I'm willing to wager that more than just you and the other few girls that came forward saw it.

I believe places where emotions ran high and were experienced by so many people at one time, are highly charged atmospheres and the so called laws of time and space contained within don't operate the same. I think it creates a rift in what we consider time, and I don't think that everyone who sees soldiers on these battlefields is an actual ghost. It's akin to looking back through time, but the looking glass works both ways and they can see into what we consider the present, and for them the future. Then of course both parties can interact for a brief period of time. For him in this case (if that's what it was, but I'm not convinced) since the battlefield was the same, decked out in his time period as it were, other than the way you were dressed you wouldn't look too out of place.

It's an interesting aside and food for thought, but I don't believe that's what happened in your story for 2 reasons. The first is that not everyone saw him, at least as far as we know, it's unclear how many people actually saw him. A time rift, is like a window, not like seeing a ghost, everyone would have seen something. The second is his reaction, if he were in his own time, he would have been alarmed, considering his role, to see a bunch of young women on a battlefield and in potential danger in the middle of a war. Instead he behaved as if we were out taking a casual stroll in a field. It indicates he's far more aware of his surroundings and state of being than a typical ghost. That confirms what you suspected that he wanted to show himself briefly, possibly only to reveal that he did his duty and proudly.

I suspect he hasn't moved on, because he was taken before he really got to live, as you also stated. Though he's not ready to move on, in his perspective, he's not done with his life either. Either way, I enjoyed your account, thanks for sharing!

That is such a harrowing and sad incident you and your wife went through, I can't imagine the horror that poor child had to go through, life tragically gone at such a young age, no wonder she couldn't move on.
Seems like a passing spirit, but what's weird is that image that just vanished, perhaps it doesn't want to be known.
Hi Linjahaha

The way you described your excursion up to the point of seeing that young man's ghost, seemed to be very fun and exciting, I've read up and watched a lot of documentaries on Gettysburg and I find it fascinating, sad but fascinating, to think so young people participated in the war and lost their lives even before it could fully begin.
Linjahaha in The Lime Tree
Hilo-That's an amazing story and you were able to help her. You stuck with it until they found her body. She, probably, just 'wanted' someone to know 'where' she was.
She reached out to you for help and 'you' responded. Just maybe you have given her some peace.
It's a truly amazing story!

Best Wishes! πŸ˜‰ 😊
Hello Twilight1011,

Life has been cruel to you. Not having you father, and losing so many family members there after is heartbreaking to read let alone for you to live through. I'm so sorry.

Scorpio eh? Now there's a topic that I love, astrology. Ican't get enough of it, so much so I usually check my transits often to see what's coming my way.

Your rising sign, sun sign and moon sign at the time of your birth play a huge part in your life. The planetary transits and how they aspect each other is worth looking at.

If you go to this link, a birth chart you can get your free astrology chart calculated, with interpretations. You can do composite charts, progressive charts and find out your transiting planets to see what's in store for you in upcoming months. You can also read what each planet means in the house they're placed and how that effects you.

Https://astro.cafeastrology.com/natal.php

I'm so intrigued by the, "voice of the Oracle' cards. I will see if I can find some online.

You're very brave going through everything you've been through and still you have strength to help your family by organising your mother-in-laws service and cremation.

Let me know how you go calculating your birth chart, if you get around to doing it or if you need help navigating that site. Once you start and if your anything like me, you'll spend hours and hours a week reading and soaking up all that astrology has to offer.

Hugs and positive energy to you.

Hey people, it's been a couple of years since I posted my lifetime experiences that I can not debunk and apologies to those of you I haven't replied to.
I have read all the replies and so many of you thank me and praise how I wrote it. It was the longest thing I have ever written and if you knew my schooling, you'd know I am no Shakespeare. I am 100% not a writer nor have I ever thought of myself as a writer. It's only the progression of technology that helps me with some of the big words with auto correct. In the past if I couldn't spell a word I would change it to something I could spell, but that's the skill level I am at. So I was amazed at the compliments I received. I just tell it exactly how I remembered it and try and put in how I felt at the time knowing this wasn't normal.
The thing with Lisa and the way the voice just suddenly came into my head, I knew it was not right, but what do I do, ignore it despite never having this happen before or try and think what else it could be? That first message was about going to a specialist church and it was over and over, nothing else, just that. There was nothing again until I came out of that church when I hear the same voice, I had to go again, I had to go again and then nothing until that bloody tune. I've spent decades trying to understand how it could be possible and that's the thing with me, I do try and debunk things, but I can't unhear what I was told, I heard it plain as day.
The randomness of the sensations of someone blowing on your neck, I knew it was happening more than just random intervals because it happened so many times and I even knew it couldn't be due to either wanting it so my subconscious made it happen because it was at weird times when I totally in a different head space and again, if just once or twice I would not be here saying this. So I definitely knew it was more than just coincidence.
Since I did post everything in this post, I've learned that mould can be a good reason why we see and hear things that we perceive as paranormal. I already knew about gas fumes from old gas appliances back in the 70's which could result in seeing and hearing things and yes, that's probably what happened when I thought I saw someone or felt someone on my legs when aged 3 or 4. However, I do not go into details into those early experiences, I just shared what I felt and saw what kicked started all this. I could probably write that book if I put all the paranormal stuff that happened to me in my dads house, but I don't and will not because there's a good chance none of it was real. This is why the two incidents that I shared was with both me and my brother together. It's pretty hard to imagine having my hair yanked so hard and feeling that pain afterwards for a long period of time and for my brother to see my head get yanked back even with the mould or gas fumes for an explanation. The other incident with the stairs, was also just weird because we both were not thinking of something bad that's going to happen and why would two people have the same hallucination or whatever the word is for hearing something paranormal. I do find it weird to this day, that it was timed to perfection. That the footsteps reached the top just as my dad came through the front door. If I was on my own, this would not be included in my post, unfortunately I wasn't alone which for me anyway, validates it did happen because we both heard it independently.
The sofa tale and the horror film could in theory of been the result of the mould or fumes, so I guess I can chalk that one off as a possibly solved case.
I've actually just remembered something else that happened constantly as a group thing too. When mum left dad and moved in with her new man, so from 1976 to when I left home in 1984, the number of electric equipment, so TV's & video recorders that would turn on and off randomly was way way more than random. Now I have never looked into this, so it may be a common trait for TVs and Video machines to turn on and off while watching, while tuned off, it didn't matter. Also, it wasn't at just 1 address or with one Tv or one video recorder, it followed us around. It's not classed as official because it could simply be a common issue, although I've not experienced it for decades now, but at that time it was pretty much a weekly occurrence. It could just of been a surge or something, I don't know because I am not an electrician.

For me, I know what's real and what is not. If I for one minute thought it could be my mind playing tricks, I wouldn't be here writing this, I value my time and sitting typing for hours knowing something didn't happen, it is just not me at all.

Someone mentioned the little girl laughing and the hair pulling. You could be the worlds best non believer, but if you heard that laugh, there is no way you could dismiss it knowing full well afterwards that you was alone just doing your job. But what freaks me out is, I slept in the bed in the room where the laughter was coming from. Admittedly, I was worse for wear so my spider senses were malfunctioning (there's also a body part that didn't work that night either, sigh...) It was just a one off, me staying in that bedroom for 1 night and I definitely didn't feel how I normally feel when I enter a building, especially an older building, like my grans flat which I stayed in for just a single night. That one night was a very long one, I slept with the light on and the TV on and I was in my 40's!
All I know was, I never thought the pub was haunted, otherwise I wouldn't of worked there for 3 years with my new girlfriend and like I explained, I never told anyone anything in fear of being ridiculed and especially to non family. I know 1 million percent I was not set up at the pub. I also know, if I did think foul play, I would have checked out peoples stories about being in the pub but discretely that Sunday morning.
Another interesting reply was about the missing slipper. I think I am in saying that it's quite common and is called under foot or something similar I think the reply stated. Maybe so, but for me I had never noticed anything missing and then reappeared some time later. Who knows, maybe that is why the one slipper was taken (or moved), so I'd know or definitely get noticed. Well we did definitely notice that's for sure. That's just so weird and thinking back, I still find it impossible what happened to happen. Granted, if we had family or friends close by we could pin it on them. My family live 250 miles away and my partner's family about 40 miles or so away. But it's the putting it back 3 days later in the exact same spot that is the real baffling play here. Who or what takes a slipper and returns it 3 days later, knowing we had both gone back upstairs and being so quite as to not wake wifey, if she fell asleep in the first place, it's that same 1 million percent certainty, she would of heard something even if she was asleep. I have never met anyone who's such a light sleeper than wifey. I think I mentioned we live in a Cul De Sac and our home is right at the end. In other words, you'd be seen walking towards our home, without knowing if we were going for a short sleep or not.
I bring this up like I do because, since I wrote this encyclopaedia of a post detailing every paranormal event I've ever had the pleasure of remembering, we have had something else happen. It is very much like the slipper, but we knew instantly this time something was missing and being the ever intuitive person, I immediately took a photo on my phone of the place where the item had been just minutes prior. I am talking about our bread knife or for me, my salad knife. This happened at the start of the English warmer weather and during this time, we eat a lot of salads to try and lose the excess weight we have put on over the winter. I had used the knife at lunchtime and I remember putting it back in the cutlery drawer per norm. When I went back into the drawer to start preparing the salad, no knife. It's weird because I immediately thought it's gone missing, which was unusual for that thought quite so soon. I ask wifey if she's seen the knife and she says, it's in the drawer. Nope and she tells me she saw it in there. Needless to say, we can't find it and I do something strange next. I take my phone and take a photograph of the cutlery draw and its contents. I say out loud, ha, now what are you going to do, you can't put it back now and me and wifey just laugh about it.
The following weekend, wifey blitzes the cupboards in the kitchen and no knife. She keeps saying, it was in there, I saw it.
Days later and still no knife, but we knew, which is weird because it's not natural, but we knew the knife was going to turn up at some point. Me taking the snapshot of the drawer maybe wasn't such a good idea after all. That's because days turned into weeks and unbelievably, turned into months.
But I am writing about it, so those of you who know your onions, will know it's going to turn up, I mean why would I write about a missing item that's simply been lost and not found right?
It was at least 5 months and we now had given up on the knife turning up and it was all a false alarm, it must of accidentally been lost in the garbage bin at some point during the day of it going missing and we simply had a blank memory of it. I was due to travel to see family shortly after the 5 month mark of the missing knife and we would start a list of things to buy on my next trip to see the family. That's because things are a lot cheaper where my family live and where I am from, which is 250 miles away in the U.K. And those of you who know the U.K. Know it's not that big of an island to start with, so 250 miles is like one end of the country to the other.
So me and wifey eventually give up and put knife down on the list. I had used other knives to prepare the salads but it's wasn't the right type of knife, so we give up and I was going to buy another knife.
Incidentally, like the original post, we still don't have friends who come over, or we go out to socialise. We have two dogs and we've always felt so guilty leaving them at home, so it's extremely rare for us to leave them. In other words, no one has been in our home for years and much like the slipper, in fact, it's worse this time because the kitchen drawer is Impossible to access via a window or door, so zero chance (again) of anyone attempting to play a joke on us. We also know, the last time the knife was used, which was just a few hours previously. This is why we eventually said, it's got to of been thrown out, which of course is very plausible.
A week before the 6 month anniversary of the knife disappearing (because I have the date of when I took the snapshot of the drawer when it first went missing) and in the same week I am due to travel to see family, I am in the kitchen and two days a week wifey needs to go into work, she's just walked through the front door and comes into the kitchen. I'm making her a cup of tea, which I always do at 5pm and one of the very few things I can still do despite living in this chronic pain.
I hand her the cup of tea and I start to prepare the salad and wifey starts to tell me about her day. I open the cutlery drawer and pick up the missing knife and I start to cut the lettuce. It's about 10 seconds later when it just clicks, I say to wifey, what have I got in my hand?
Ohhhh you found it then, she says, where was it?
I hesitate for a second and say, I've just picked the knife up out of the drawer, you've just seen me do it. I swear to her, I've literally just opened that drawer and picked up the knife. Where was it she asks, it was just on top of the others. We both then look at each other with those puzzled looks.
I told you I say, I told you it would turn back up again, I told you it wasn't in the garbage bin and that's why I took the photo. Ha, see, I screwed up their plan, that's why it's taken so long for it to return back where it was.
Wifey knows me to know I didn't hide it for 6 months to play a joke. I know wifey was at work all day, so I know she could not of placed it back in the drawer, nor would she do that anyway. It's exactly like the slipper, we don't do tricks on each other, especially at 55yrs old. Maybe if we in our teens yeah, but not at 55.
We talk through the events and it's 1 week off 6 months that the knife was missing. In other words, zero chance it was in there all this time, zero chance. Zero chance it was anywhere inside that cutlery drawer because I saw her clean it out just days after it went missing.
We both knew the instant it went missing, it was going to turn up again. Ok, so yeah, we did think maybe we do have it wrong this time. Nope, there it was, in my hand almost 6 months after disappearing and I have the picture to show me and wifey, it wasn't in the drawer.
Granted, to anyone else, it's just a drawer with cutlery inside it. I mean wow, seriously, that's got to be some kind of record right for the missing item phenomenon, I think Thats the official terminology.
Wifey is just glad it's returned, it's been with her for decades and she was gutted that she thought it was lost forever after months of being invisible.

So there you have it, nothing else has happened over the last two years since I wrote the post describing ALL my unexplainable episodes. Wifey thinks some of her items are currently missing, like her winter coat and the dog's toothpaste, but she found that just yesterday actually. It was behind some boxes in the bedroom and theoretically it could have fallen down there. Wifey says she checked down there before, but I know nothing about that so it's not part of an answer.

I still haven't heard, felt or gotten any signs of anything weird for years now. I did look up the nearest spiritualist church recently, but only because of the knife missing which is what triggered the urge to check to see the nearest church and I did briefly think of going, but the thought of the drive and then the seating and possible uncomfortable chairs, with the return drive home was more than I was prepared to endure my body through. That's the closest I've been though. I might still go one day, but that's not any time soon.

So, I will now close and again, thanks to everyone who read and replied. Thanks to everyone who liked the style of how I presented it, it's something I've never thought possible with what I write, being so intellectually challenged if that makes sense. Pre iPad days, there was no way this would have read the way it's written. Again, I'm no writer trust me. But also, thank you for being so kind in your feedback, if I had read that post I would have a hard time believing it all. The Lisa thing is totally out of this world and I doubt anyone really can believe it happened the way I tell it, but nope, it's exactly how it happened. The emotion from reading the story of Lisa and the terrible way she died, The voice in my head, the random goosebumps at so many times a day, every day for weeks on end. The direct messages from that first interaction with the spiritualist, I know peeps will probably think this was not so real, but I can only tell you how it came out, I am not here for likes or views, I am not that type of person, so if I say I saw a blue pig walk the street, trust me, I saw a blue pig walking the street. It really doesn't bother me if you think I made up the blue pig, if that's what I saw and no, I didn't see a blue pig, that's just an example and if I did see a blue pig walking the street, I would say, I think it was dyed blue to trick people into thinking they say a blue pig. I just wanted to put it all down in one place. It helps that of course you like it and anyone thought anything could be explained, I'd welcome any answer. It's here because I can't debunk it. But in a way, the rocking pram, the Tv turning channels could be potentially debunked due to being on my own and in theory, been affected by either mould or gas fumes. But I also know, I will take being attacked with the hair pulling incident, the stairs incident, the entire Lisa incident that was 12 months of just weird constant activity (including that first medium speech which I know could not of been guessed because it was so direct and on point time after time) and the little girl in the pub laughter incident to my grave because, I know, like the sun will rise tomorrow know, that they all happened.

To close, I had this random thought the other week actually, I mentioned about the final thing with Lisa and that sensation that words can't describe moment and I said I was told about a book which described what happened to me to the letter. Well, I've been thinking, it's possible that the book just fits what happened to me and it's quite interesting to me anyway, that if I saw a red bus with the number 96 on it and someone pointed out a book that said there was a red bus with the number 96 on it at page 100 for instance, does that mean, if it then said I would win Β£1million exactly 12 months later and It somehow came true with say a scratch card jackpot win of Β£1million, does that mean the book can tell the future? No, of course not, it was just coincidence. That's what I am starting to think about with the book I was told explained what happened to me with Lisa right at the end.
So you see, even after 30 years, I am still seeking out ways to debunk what happened to me. Hopefully, that gives any new readers an insight to how I operate. I do not do bollox, there are enough people who will say and do anything to get noticed already, we don't need another 1 adding to that list.

Please feel free to reply if you want anything answered.

Thanks for getting to this point lol

She said she left as soon as the cold overtook her and it was about two hours before she was back to normal. But what ever it was we do not feel it was an attachment, she acts normal. I have a picture of the mast and will try to load it.
Twilight1011 in Too Cold For Comfort
That's really interesting how she was still freezing, even after leaving her building, and bundling up. I've heard about this happening before, but I'm not sure if I heard a reason for it, to be that extreme. From what I have learned though, that when there's a spirit around, it can absorb a lot of energy, from whatever may be around them. Like anything electronic, or even our own energy. By doing this, they might be trying to get enough to either try and manifest their selves, or to try and move/throw objects etc. I'm curious how long after your wife started to freeze, did she leave her building? I ask because if she left almost immediately, perhaps she left before whatever was in there, was able to manifest itself, or before it could make it's presence known some other way. πŸ€” I think Lady-glow has a good theory as well, on whether or not the spirit went through her, or somehow attached itself to her. I'd imagine if it did actually attach itself to her, y'all would be able to notice that something is off with your wife. So with all of those possibilities, I'd say it was most likely either trying to manifest itself to her, or it may have walked through her (or maybe even both of those). But that's just my thoughts to it. I imagine having a building field with old antiques, would have multiple attachments to them. Not all spirit's choose to present their selves to people, and rather go unnoticed, so no telling how many y'all could actually have in her building. I hope to hear back from you soon, and hope that your wife is doing better, since that experience.
Twilight1011 in Lost In My Room
MiaG - I'm happy that you were able to connect to what I believe. I have felt a major change within myself, as I began my spiritual journey this past year, to where it's opened my eyes to even more than I have ever thought of. Thank you for your condolences! I really appreciate it. We're doing better, but it's still taking some adjustments, especially with the holidays coming up soon. Sadly, despite how very painful her lost is to me, I think out of my family, I'm the only one that's able to handle it a little better. I'm a Scorpio, so I'm very interested in the dark side of life, that a lot fear (death/paranormal). I had to learn about death, and the pain of losing someone you love, at a young age (when I lost my brother). After losing my brother, I continued to lose other loved one's, over the year's. Not to mention, I lost my dad before I was even born. So I had to learn how to cope, after losing so many loved one's. Sadly, I had to learn how to cope, by myself. I knew of the paranormal world as a child, and despite it being terrifying, I couldn't help but be intrigued by it as well. When we lost my mother in-law, my husband's family wasn't taking it very well, and no one felt up for having to be the one to help plan and make her final arrangements. So I stepped up to do so, as I knew her well enough, to know what she would have loved. Also, the fact that I've watched my family, make these types of arrangements so many times before, I was amazed at how much knowledge I seemed to have, when it came to planning her arrangements, and knowing what to ask etc. Even my husband was amazed. I've never had to do that before, but for my mother in-law, I couldn't not, and had to make sure she got the very best, when it came to putting together her service. She wanted to be cremated, so some of her family wanted her put in the cemetery, that a lot of my husband and my family are buried in, while we had some saved off to the side, for us to be able to get, and be able to have a piece of her closer to us. We're still wanting to get necklaces, to put some of her ashes in. As for the Oracle cards I mentioned, I think you would really love them! I can go on forever about how amazing they are, and the energy you can feel from them, I swear will light your face up! These cards aren't only limited to talking to a loved one on the other side, but also it can be used to ask questions for your soul, as well as your spirit guides. I got mine off Amazon, if you'd like to look it up there, and please read over the reviews for it! I was amazed to see the majority were positive reviews, that people couldn't stop going on about how amazing these Oracle cards are. The Creator is Isabelle Cerf, just so you know if you've found the right Oracle cards (granted I don't believe there's another similar one, that's close in name lol). But again, it's called "Voice of the Souls Oracle". I think you'll love it. 😊
Hello Linjahaha,

That was an experience to remember for sure.

I watched a small clip on TV ages back with the help 'Val/YGS Mod', I found the footage on YouTube so I could rewatch it because I missed bits when it aired on TV.

Here's the link if you're interested.

Https://youtu.be/E7QDvcC14EY?si=G96THyr8nowZ0bFV

I don't know enough about Gettysburg, but I do feel a heavy sadness when I watch that clip. The poor soldiers. I can't imagine what they went through. May they all RIP.

Thank you for sharing your details of your tour.

MiaG. 😊
Hello Twilight1011,

Thank you for being so kind. I'm so sorry you've been going through the loss of your mother-in-law. Your husband is lucky to have you during this time. It helps to have a shoulder and someone who knew the person who passed away to talk about the memories, loss, and the pain. The pain never goes away, but it does transform into all things good, funny, sad, and loving. It has for me anyway.

I couldn't talk about it, eat, go out, be with people for months and months. The first few weeks it felt like mum wasn't gone, I felt like I had to ring her to tell her this or that and then realised I couldn't.

Few months later and I adjusted to not having her around in body but she was here in spirit. Things would fall of the new washing machine she bought me. (clothes I placed ready for a wash) Or a banana would drop from the fruit bowl when I walked past the dining table. Possible that my vibration walking past shook the bowl causing the fruit to move. (She loved bananas) I haven't seen her yet though. 😒

I appreciate all the knowledge you have shared with your new found spiritual growth. I'm going to google the oracle's you've mention. Thank you for that.

Thank you also for telling me about the different stages that our loved one's endure. It makes a lot sense now that you've said that. Perhaps mum is still going through her spiritual journey and I have to be patient.

I pray for her, dad and 2 brothers a few times a day. I know the Lord will keep them all together and safe.

Thank you so much again Twilight1011. You've been so dear and I hope you, your husband and family are getting closer to feeling less sad and more joy knowing your mother-in-law is still with all of you in spirit. May she also RIP.

Positive energy to you and your family, MiaG 😊
Lady-glow, I am very glad that you enjoyed the account. As to 'why' only a few of us noticed the soldier...Well. I used to read the paranormal accounts written by the famous Parapsychologist, Hans Holzer. He surmised that we 'all' have that ability. If you wish to call it that. He said that 'some' people 'are' more sensitive to those events than others. It depends on the 'degree' of sensitivity in the individual.
I imagine because we were 'kids' that we were far more open to something like that. We never knew if any of the boys saw him because we kept the incident to ourselves. Back in the 60's people were not as comfortable with the subject of the paranormal as they seem to be today, as this site indicates.
I am so glad for this site since it appears that more people around the world are far more accepting of this subject than they were about 50 years ago. It goes a long way toward saying that more people seem to be far more open-minded than they were back then.
We were afraid of being called kooks. Therefore, we only discussed it amongst ourselves to avoid that criticism. It was a different time period. It was during that time, between the 50's-60's that there were all those reports of flying saucers, also. Those people were called either nuts, or it was said that they were seeing naturally occurring phenomena that 'appeared' to 'look' like flying saucers. I remember Project Blue-Book written by an air-force Major, Donald Kehoe. He was exposing the cover-ups.
Too many people were skeptics around that time period. Therefore, those of us that saw something like a ghost, or some kind of paranormal event, more, or less, just kept it to themselves. Not unlike the other girls and I did at the time.
As far as the phantom soldier. He may not have known he was deceased. I cannot say for sure on that subject. However, we saw the sweet smile on his young face and the friendly wave of the hand acknowledging our presence when he noticed 'us' looking at him. I think he just wanted someone to know he is still there doing his duty that cost him so dearly so many years ago.
Like I said, we could only surmise that at the time it happened. We discussed it rather excitedly, but that was the conclusion that 'we' drew.
Honestly. If you go visit Gettysburg you cannot help but feel all the emotions that were spent there in that place. It was a truly humbling, yet exciting experience. Again, thank you for reading and commenting. I hope I was, somewhat, able to answer your questions!

The Very Best to You! 😊 😊
Welcome to YGS.

Hi flyboy72.

I find it rather odd that your wife wouldn't warm up once she had left the storage building. Would it be possible that an entity "wrapped" itself around her or, even worse, got into her body? (shudder) Did she, eventually, recover her normal body temperature?
Not meaning to be nosy but, does she cleanse the items after buying them or protects herself in any way in case something is attached to her findings?

I hope to read more of your experiences in the future.

Thanks for sharing.
Hello Linjahaha.

It seems like that field trip was exciting and fun.

I find it puzzling when a group of people are present during a paranormal event but only a few are able to witness the activity.
It makes me wonder if ghosts choose who is allowed to see them, or if it depends on the degree of sensibility/acceptance of each person, but then, - are all ghosts aware of their passing and of not having a physical body?

Fascinating experience. Thanks for sharing.
Twilight1011 in Lost In My Room
MiaG - I'm sorry to hear about your loss 😒 I know it's not easy having to lose someone we really love and care about. I'm happy that you're able to find comfort and peace with your mothers passing, with you feeling that your father has welcomed her, with his loving arms once again. I'm sure she'll be visiting you as soon as she's able to do so. I just recently lost my very beautiful, and amazing mother in-law, last month πŸ’” It has been very difficult for my husband and family, losing her the way we did. Luckily this past year, I've began my spiritual journey, and had even talked with my mother in-law about what all I've learned etc, from it, when she was still here. I learned that she too was interested in it as well. I haven't exactly gotten a visitation from her though, but with my clairsentient abilities, that I've been trying my best to strengthen this past year, I do believe that I've communicated with her. Between me being able to feel her around us, the first 2 weeks I'd say, after we had first lost her, and by using special oracle cards I had recently purchased, specifically to be able to communicate with her (Voice of the souls oracle cards). She said she would give me a sign through music, which coincidentally in life, she really loved her music. I just received those song's yesterday, that I knew had to be from her, as I filled with goosebumps all over, just hearing it. I've caught her speaking in my head, that I've tried to believe was just me thinking that, but have had readings say otherwise, making me believe it had to be her then. But something I've came to learn about the other side recently, that I've never really considered before, is my mother in-law telling me that though she's on the other side now, and is very happy, and watching over us etc (she's even spoke about talking to God!) that she's also going through a transformation period of her own right now, to where she's discovering herself better and growing spiritually from it etc. I'm sure to some believers, that sounds too crazy to believe, but as for me, I felt it made perfect sense that even in death, that we're still able to grow spiritually, especially if we weren't able to do so in life. She said it wasn't a painful or horrible experience for her to go through though, as she's embracing her spiritual growth, but that because she's still going through this stage, she isn't able to do all the thing's we want or ask of her, right now. Like visiting in a dream or something. I don't fully understand all those rules or details on the other side, and it makes you wonder how other's have been able to do so right after their passing, but maybe they were on a better level of their spiritual growth or something, I don't know. I think that's for us to learn, when it's our time to leave this life behind. Whatever happens when we cross over, I think what I've learned so far, is that we still grow in death, and it's not the end for us. I truly believe I've communicated with my mother in-law, and there's reasons why receiving visitations from them, can't always be so easy, or soon after their passing. I'm happy you reached out though, and apologize for going so far in depth with all this. πŸ˜… I hope it may give you some type of comfort, to hear what I've learned, but don't mean to push that belief on you, if that's not what you're comfortable with believing. I don't feel that there's only 1 true religion or belief, and have no problem with others believing in what feels right to them. This is just some of my new thoughts to my belief, as I think there's way more to everything, than what we really know. I wish you the very best as always, and hope that you're doing good now, as I know it can take time, before we can fully move forward, after losing a loved one.
CantunSEEit74 in The Lime Tree
Wow great story and you're the only one that can smell it. The dead want to be found and want to be seen I believe. Imagine how many years she stood at that tree waiting to be found by somebody moving around that house. That dog saved the both of you except you have to deal with it mentally. That OCD came in handy and thank you for your dogged pursuit to find out information and stick your neck out to get to the bottom of that little shadow under the tree. The police are too busy and really cannot do much if you tell them, you see dead people. But you did it.
Thanks for sharing and good luck out there.
KnightRaven in The Speakeasy Ghost
Rajine: I agree there is some kind of attachment. Over the years the store appears to be either empty or used as storage. I need to get the nerve to go back there and ask some questions.
KnightRaven in The Child Spirit
Hor: I had a similar experience after my father in law passed away. Just days after his passing, I awoke to someone forcefully shoving my shoulder and telling me to wake up. There was no one around. My wife and I think it was her dad's spirit telling me to wake up as the man of the house as well as get busy with funeral arrangements.
Seems like the red haired lady hasn't or doesn't want to move on, or maybe she has an attachment to the place.
Hello Twilight1011,

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I decided to get rid of that silly ID (SWS).

I don't have any paranormal activity these days and 'Steve' obviously can't get passed the regular cleansing I do.

Hopefully you'll find time to write and and submit another post. You never fail to intrigue with your submissions.

My mum past away last February and I've been waiting for her to visit. She's obviously been whisked away by my dad who has no doubt been waiting for her for over 39 years. I know they are reunited and happy wherever they are. May they rest in peace.

I managed to get my sister on YGS. Now she's on here more often than me. 😊

I Look forward to seeing more of you.

MiaG
MiaG - Hey, I was wondering why your other page, was no longer up, and you were now under a guest, when I would see your old post. I'm glad that you reached out, and let me know that you have a new account name, on here. I won't continue to distract from this OP, so hopefully we can get back in touch under 1 of my old submissions, if you'd like 😊
Lady-glow - I'm glad I didn't offend you by what I said. I wonder if it was an actual spirit, was it just passing through, or was it attached to the property or something πŸ€” I think it's strange to not have noticed it before or since. Then again, perhaps it's residual, and only appears at a certain time, that you're not normally up at, to be able to have noticed it before. I'd really like to hear if there's any reports of someone passing away around that area, that may seem to fit the spirits description...
KnightRaven in The Speakeasy Ghost
lady-glo: Thanks for reading and commenting on my story. My wife said we were reading the exorcism prayer by Pope Leo XIII. We read the prayer while holding a crucifix and sprinkling holy water. It only happened to the one toilet. Being lightly used it would clog to the pint of overflowing. I'm sure the pipes were old but we were young and didn't think about that.

I read your link and it was very informative. Pueblo is semi-arid but it does have a lot of water. There is a reservoir and a couple lakes and rivers. These events were close to the Arkansas River which flows through town.
There was an old article I read a few years ago about utility workers digging up bones while working by the State Insane Asylum. Later they discovered mass graves of patients by the asylum. So they installed water and sewer through unmarked graves.
lady-glow in The Speakeasy Ghost
Hi KnightRaven.

It must have been frustrating to moved from a haunted location to another haunted location, even if the activity was milder than at the previous place.

"The whole front of the store was filled with religious items, so you'd think that would protect the place."

Actually, if the religious items haven't been properly blessed, they would be just objects, hence useless as a method of protection.

Although there's a theory of spirits using water as a conduit, I'm not sure if this would result on clogged toilets or if there was a mundane explanation for this, specially since the building was old and maybe the plumbing needed an upgrade.
Were the toilets malfunctioning before the 'exorcism'?
Would you mind to describe to more detail what you did and what you used to perform the cleansing of the loos?

The following article provides an interesting insight on the interaction of spirits and water:

Https://homespunhaints.com/how-ghosts-use-water-as-a-conduit-for-manifestation

Knowing the history of the place makes easy to understand what caused the feeling of uneasiness in that place.

Thanks for sharing.
KnightRaven in The Haunting On Midway
Rajine: As I recall, the landlord denied having any complaints with the apartment. He was more concerned with keeping my deposits. He had recently acquired the property from his father so maybe he didn't know anything.
I wonder what could have happened in that apartment... When you told the landlord that he needed to get an exorcist, what was his response?
That certainly is strange, and just plain weird, did you try asking any of your neighbors if they seen that as well?
I don't think this is a benign entity, especially in my experience and reading dozens of stories on here, malevolent spirits tend to attach itself to a person and leaves their mark, literally, on its victims.
