Hi Jennifer40

I'm sure that must have creeped you out and I'm pretty sure that if you told your friends they probably wouldn't believe you because of the prank previously, this incident you experienced reminds me of something that happened while I was at my brother's house some time ago.

I had spent the weekend at my brother's house and one night while everyone was asleep I go to the kitchen for something to drink and my brother has this wine and champagne glass rack from which you can hang the glasses from the slots on it when I notice the glasses behind me make a noise when I turn around expecting to see someone behind me all I see is the glasses moving on the rack like as if someone had moved it, when I go to check and see if anyone was in fact awake, everyone was fast asleep.

Hi again Panini18

Yes that is usually what happens when you are a kid 😆 especially when you try to tell someone elder and they just brush it off like it's nothing.
SOS_Paranormal in The Sailor And His Wife
Hi, would you be happy for me to retell and publish your story anonymously to my YouTube channel and podcast?
Panini18 in Doll Clowns
Hi Rajine!

Everytime I experienced something out of the ordinary I usually tell it to my aunt and cousin. But since I was still too young back then they wouldn't believe me and would just say I was just dreaming or it was just my imagination. However, when I was about to enter grade school, my cousin did experience something paranormal. My cousin's story would be my next post.
I have had experience with the Green mist as a child from the Chicago area myself. It would be in my dreams. This green mist would always come to get me. I would often sleep with my parents or next to them on the floor and it would still come for me. I would say between 4-8 years old this happened. I was very scared. I haven't seen it for a very long time close to 40 years now.

Rajine in Doll Clowns
Hi Panini18

I wonder what it could have been 🤔. Have you spoken to your cousin about this maybe your cousin might have also experienced something out of the ordinary.
Mweat in Exit 40
At the time, we thought nothing of it. I believed at the time, he died in Albuquerque. I believed the others believed that also.
On the return trip to California, our little "Caravan" did make an intentional stop there.
We all bowed our heads and paused a moment. Afterwards, we all looked up and around.
Thats when it really set in. It actually put a place to an event. And there was where I coasted off the freeway.
I try to look at things scientifically, but this was the only place on the trip that there was any problem, either way.
Out of the thousands of exits we past on the trip, we all came to a unplanned stop here.
[at] Alenasiouxlee thank you so much for reading and supporting me. Yes, I'm making time to write more of my experiences. Stay tuned
[at] TheSweetDevil23 no problem, I'm glad you are curious and want to more. We believe this spirit was living in a tree that is in the middle of our courtyard and is attached to our house as well.
For now, I heard there's only one entity and yes she does give signs of being around in the daytime as well.
Thank You for all the replies, it has happened on one other occasion, and I found myself at my Parents house in the middle of the night (I wasn't living there at the time and certainly shouldn't have been there at that time of night) on this occasion I attempted to stamp my foot on the ground to get their attention, but again I was unable to due to only being able to move very slowly, as though a force was stopping me.
Then I was home again and awake.
Val, thank you.:)

Also, in Latin it is falsum excitatio which is not all that impressive, I think.

As long as one of these false awakening doesn't involve going to the bathroom and doing ones business...then, it could become a rude awakening.
Rc, it's called false awakening. No kidding, that's the 'technical' term for it.🤔 It's probably sad that the name for something that doesn't look like it's Latin or made up from left over scrabble tiles, and is LOGICAL makes me so happy...
Psst...thanks for letting me learn something new!
I too have often dreamed of waking up and starting to do stuff, and then waking up. It is so disorienting. It is probably not ghostly but it sure is spooky. I wonder what the name for this experience is.

I don't think it is lucid dreaming. I've had dreams where I know I am dreaming. This is more that one dreams they are awake, which is just weird to say.
Ironaldkdkwdok23 in 2pm Terror
Are there any mythos in India related to the spirit? I really want to know.
Hi Emilieoxox

I always say that our loved ones are always around us even though we can't see them, they will give us many signs to show that they are around.

As for your second incident it could be astral projection or maybe even lucid dreaming, have you had any more of this experience?
Rajine in Exit 40
Hi Mweat

I don't think it's a coincidence, especially since that's the spot where he passed on, condolences to you and your family, may he rest in peace.
Panini18 in Weird Silhouette
Hi Rajine!

It was quite scary, fortunately, this was the first and last time I saw the gorilla-like silhouette. However, my second experience was also weird and scary but different than this one. Wait for my second story to get published. Thanks for reading!
lady-glow in Little Boy Spirit
Just out of curiosity:

Have you tried to take pictures and/or record the times when your little one seems to be playing with Jamie?
Oftentimes technology captures things that go unnoticed by our senses.
Hello Emilieoxox.

I'm sorry for the loss of your grandparents.

I agree with the idea of this dream being a visitation from your grandparents, and a way to let you know that they are together and watching over you.

I'm puzzled about your second story, specially since you seem to have experienced an episode of sleep paralyses within your dream.

LFrog1386 in Little Boy Spirit
I definitely agree it was more about making sure your boys were okay. Your brain was absolutely still trying to process what you had seen. Your first instinct as a mother is to protect your little ones. Although, having said that, why didn't you check on your daughter since it came from her room? 😆
LFrog1386 in Exit 40
Thats a really awesome story. I hope it somehow brought peace to you, knowing your dad was there, even if in spirit. May he rest in peace. ❤
MrsRamsay in Exit 40
YES. Now THAT is what I call a message from your dad!
You didn't say his name, but I'd like to give him a big thumbs up for communicating with you all.

I say all the time, if I die and am able to somehow communicate, I'm going to say something important, or give information... Something tangible if possible. Pretty impressive.
RCRuskin in Exit 40
Well, given that it happened, I'd say 100% chance?:)

May his Memory be Eternal.
Piperasc in Exit 40
Thanks for sharing your story. For sure your dad had a hand in bringing you to the place he passed. I am glad you got a sign from him.
SOS_Paranormal in One Year Later
Hi, would you be happy for me to retell and publish your story anonymously to my YouTube channel and podcast?
Emilieoxox in Little Boy Spirit
Yeah I know for certain it was no dream, I was definitely awake.
I did question afterwards why on earth I checked on the boys after common sense had kicked in and I realized it can't have been one of them as it WAS just legs.

I think it's an instant reaction as a Mum, something's amiss, what to do first? Check on the most important things - my kids.
I think it's just that reassurance that they're ok when something bizarre happens, even though realistically you KNOW they're fine, you just have to make sure.
Thank You for the feedback.

It was very close to the cemetery, only a fence separated the bottom end of the cemetery and the school grounds,
The school was demolished and rebuilt in the same location in the years after I left but I haven't been back to see if it's still as close to the cemetery as it was when I was there, though I assume it is.
MrsRamsay in Little Boy Spirit
Your comment about seeing just the legs, yet you checked on your kids anyway, was really interesting to me.

When we see something that doesn't add up to what we know is reality, it takes our critical thinking skills longer to catch up. Also, as moms, of course we're going to immediately go to our kids. I'm guessing you did all this in the moment, and then your brain started rolling over what had happened.

I'm interested in this because I think it makes a difference in whether people can or do see paranormal things, or whether they somehow remain in the state of denial. Many people would've chalked the legs up to a dream and gone back to bed.
MrsRamsay in Ghost In Our Home
This story was so compelling, and yet it bothers me because I'm not sure you got the true details. Let's look at geography.
Mufreesboro is SE of Nashville, with your location 14 miles further east and north of Murfreesboro. The crime the soldiers did was to a family SW of Nashville. They were arrested "immediately" which leads me to believe they were arrested SW of Nashville. So imagine the area is a round clock face. Nashville in the middle, the soldiers' crime at about 7 and your home at about the 3 or 4. So why would they have to travel through or near your home in Murfreesboro to get to Nashville? I'm not in any way trying to discredit your story, just not sure the soldier story stacks up, unless there was a newspaper article? I know Scott was likely tempted to fill in the blanks, with the "empath" also, but sometimes one fact overlooked changes a whole story. The date and weather information makes total sense, as Murfreesboro was fought the very beginning of January.

As a southerner, I'll concede that a Tennessee family in the dead of winter might offer or be coerced to offer their barn (NE of Murfreesboro) to some yankees and their fellow yankee prisoners who maybe got lost and went way out of their way, but it's much harder to imagine that the Tennessee son, not already in the rebel army, would be "hanging out with" enemy soldiers on the eve of an action. Or want to leave with the enemy or, even more awful, that he somehow raped and killed his own mother. Why would the son not be trying to protect his mother? From the Yankees? In any case, your narrative was truly interesting and entertaining, and reminds us that there was a whole lot of evil and likely good during those times. Civil war is a special kind of evil. Amazing the house sat empty all those years! And I truly wonder where the "no wildlife" thing plays in. Thanks for considering.
MrsRamsay in Ghost In Our Home
Hey, RKirby,
You had so much amazing detail in your story it was fascinating, and the house itself sounds so interesting. Couple of quick questions:

1. When did you notice the wildlife thing? Before you bought, or later? Just curious.

2. How did you get that level of detail on the history of the home and the events that happened just before the battle at Murfreesboro? I'm especially interested in the speculation of how/why Hiram may have killed and raped his mother? That's a pretty unusual crime. Also, I have to mention this... And I may be way wrong, but I cannot imagine a Tennesee boy of battle age 1. Not being at the fight and 2. Planning to run off with a couple of Yankee prisoners after setting them free.

And this isn't a question, but I wonder how the desk and rugs ended up barring the door to the upstairs and why. Guess we'll never know.

Thanks for anything more you can add. I'm also in an historic area and believe my home is visited now and then by some spirits in what look to be those pillbox soldier's hats. My dog will even bark at them. They don't seem to be in the house though, just outside.

A chilling story. The most interesting detail is: "we physically felt him barge by our shoulders". This seems to be in keeping with some of the details we hear about ghosts/apparitions/spirits. Thanks for sharing the experience.
Hi Panini18

I'm sure that for a kid aged around 4 or 5 years old it must have been a scary experience, I've had my fair share of shadow people luckily for me I was older and on a few occasions I was alone when I experienced it, I posted about it some time ago on this site.

Have you experienced this again as you got older or was it just a once of thing?
Hi again Emilieoxox

I must say that is a freaky incident and luckily you wasn't the only one to have experienced that, I cannot begin to imagine what else must be happening in the school since you mention that it's built near and possibly over a cemetery.
Hi Emilieoxox

It's such a tragic back story about Jamie I do hope that he's able to move on instead of being stuck here.
Hi Nashra_Pervez

Spirits usually can mimic people's voices, I've experienced disembodied voices myself a lot, especially when I was alone at first it was creepy but I got used to it and eventually it stopped, I read somewhere some time ago that if you hear someone call out to you let them call your name 3 times before you answer because spirits can't call someone more than twice, I'm not sure how true this is though.
Hi RKirby

Do you think possibly it could be a demonic presence rather than a spirit of someone who was once human? The reason I ask is because generally spirits of people who have passed aren't so malevolent in the sense that they would sexually assault someone, spirits can and will scare someone but not in a intimate way, and demonic entities are known to mimic or pretend.
Hi ghostsarecool

I really enjoyed reading your incident, makes me think about the loved ones I unfortunately lost, but not in a bad way rather a happy and a little sad, I really do believe that the people who we loved and lost are always around us even though we can't see them, always guiding always protecting us, and I agree when you say that your grandma wanted to see your mom.
Hi dhariniraman

I always advise people to look for a logical explanation for something first and go the supernatural/spiritual route as the very last option.

I'm sure what you experienced must've been terrifying, but over thinking about it will just be frustrating to you.
[at] Valkricry

I've had the same thing happen where I got a call on my cell phone from my own number. While that's not anything paranormal the dog's reaction is kind of odd.
Spiritual_Beleiver in Lady Ghost Or Dog Ghost
Hi Bajrang,

Madhubani is my in laws place, may I know the name of the village in madhubani? I'm from Majora, near Rajnagar.
Leonard1986 in At the Alamo
It's possible it could have been a spirit of Davy Crockett 🤔
Emilieoxox in The Boarding House
Hi there, sorry I'm a little late to the party here.
I was just wondering, have you considered finding out any significant history of the area as well as the building?
Sometimes a haunting of a building can be connected to the land and surrounding area rather than the building itself, so it's definitely worth looking into that too if you haven't already.
Fascinating story.
Jennifer40 in 2pm Terror
Wow, that sounds terrifying! Glad that you and your Mom were okay. ❤

RCRuskin in Ghost In Our Home
Hi, RKirby. Welcome to YGS.

Please forgive the skeptic in me as I say that finding such a large property so located without even birds on it is rather odd.

But the oddest thing to me is the trapped souls. Not that this can't happen, but the scifi geek in me, reading this experience, is reminded of an episode of a TV show. Wolf in the Fold, a season 2 episode of Star Trek (the original one), involves a spirit that feeds of the negative energy from murder. This entity, within the episode, is considered to be responsible for many serial murders on many planets, including those of Jack the Ripper. (Even a quote from the episode, said by Spock: "women are more easily and more deeply terrified, generating more sheer horror than the male of the species." Of course this was 1960s US, but that still may not be an excuse for such an opinion.)

But to your experience, I think it is more likely that this entity haunting the house is more a demon then the ghost (s) of three rapists and a rape victim. But this is just my opinion.

Hope you are doing better these day.
hello ghostsarecool!

That's such a touching and lovely story ❤ I wouldn't want to think any visits from my grandma is foreboding as well but perhaps it is a reminder from her to cherish your family while you're able. I think grandparents are very special indeed, so shower them with attention, love and affection while you can. I'd like to think it's also a reminder from your grandma that she will always watch over your family, even from beyond 😊 ❤
DarkCloudVA in Anger Of A Dark Entity
Alittle late here... But better late than never I guess
I know a lot of you are confused by the aura, And trust me, even years later I still am
[at] Aporetic You say this account seems familar, As in you've heard it before or something simmlar?
[at] RCRuskin It was the cemetary at first. The Mausoleum itself didn't really have any feeling until we got there and stayed abit
[at] Valikiricry Honestly me neither. I do like that explanation you gave out though. Sounds very plausible.
I feel like what I saw couldve been a demon as well
Emilieoxox in Little Boy Spirit
Thank You for your comment.
As far as I'm aware Jamie has never reacted to my greetings, so he could very well be a residual haunting rather than intelligent.
However, having said that, my youngest son (who is Autistic and cannot speak) often seems as though he is actually playing with Jamie. Following him and laughing etc.

I will attempt to help him move on though, just incase he is intelligent and somehow stuck here.

Thank You again.
lady-glow in The Voice Changer
Welcome to YGS.

Hi Nashra.

I imagine that this was an unnerving experience though, in my opinion, not necessarily a paranormal encounter.
It's normal to feel disoriented when waking up in the middle of the night, and so is hearing voices and sounds as you're falling asleep or waking up.

If this experience hasn't happened again, there's no reason to be afraid of something that happened just once.

Thanks for sharing
lady-glow in Little Boy Spirit
Welcome to YGS.

This is such a sad, though fascinating experience.
Although I'm not sure if you are dealing with a residual or an intelligent haunting, in my opinion, this is not a negative spirit.

If the former, it's possible that what you see is just an imprint of what used to be Jamie's routine during his life, if the latter, he probably hasn't moved on because he doesn't know where to go.

Has the little ghost ever reacted to your greetings? Has he tried to interact on any way with your children?
Have you tried blessing/cleansing your place with the intent of helping this little spirit to move to the next plane?

Even if the spirit is not bothering you, perhaps it's time to help him move to where he belongs. You may want to ask for the help of a religious person of your faith, or try to do it on your own telling him that it's time to go to the light where his loved ones are waiting for him.

Thanks for sharing.
I enjoyed listening to your stories and your grammar is good. Thank you for sharing and I hope that you stay safe.

No one who is alive really knows why things happen from the other side but I have had similar things happen to me when I was in great depression and stress.

I think that dark or evil things can use us as like a battery and drain our power. They feed off of bad emotions, sadness, pain hate etc.

I used to be followed by shadow people but now I have not seen one in about 3 years now.

I think they left when I confronted them, I swore at them and told them to go away and that I was not scared of them any more and that they have no power over me and no right to be in my personal space. Once I did that they went away.

Hope you can do the same and find peace. Well wishes 😊

P.S: Evil things hate light. Let as much light into your life as possible and this can help I believe.
When my father was dying, a tenant of my mother told her that she saw my father sitting in the rocking chair outside the house. She even said hello and goodevening to him. But my daddy was very weak already and it was impossible for him to stand and walk... After that incident maybe 2 days after, he passed away. I still miss him everyday. ❤
Sorrry for taking so long to get back to you ifihadyoux I can't believe it has been seven years wow! From what I can recall I am pretty sure that I was awake because I was moving my eyes around looking at the room and the TV and I think my head and neck to but I can not recall that? They say in sleep paralysis that they can move their eyes and look around the room to so you might be right maybe I was asleep?

But when the lightning force thing hit it was so powerful and shook me and scared me so much I am sure if I had been asleep it would have woken me up from sleep.

Also my room shared a wall with our garage I don't know if that is relevant to the occurrence but me and my brother were scared to go in there and I used to think that there was a ghost in there but it might have been my twelve year old mind making stuff up?
Scary_Annabelle in My Grandma's Ghost (part 2)
Hi ghostsarecool!,
I loved your story and It's such a Lovely thing to see our Dead relatives come back to see us. Sadly, until now, I didn't saw any of my dead relatives come back. Anyways, I loved your story; God Bless you and Your Family!
Scary_Annabelle in Hallucinations Or Illusion
Hi dhariniraman,
Like lady-glow said, You can consult a Doctor or if you feel like it's paranormal, Try searching the History of your home. It's just like a Residual Haunting I think.
Hello ghostsarecool.

Interesting experience. My advice would be for you to enjoy the present as much as you can, and spend time with your grandfather, call him often and spend as much quality time with him as possible without worrying about the future.
Hello dhariniraman.

Welcome to YGS. Your English is very good.

In my opinion, it would be important to go to see a doctor who specializes on sleep disorders. Also, try to keep a journal recording what you did the times you have these experiences.

It is important to discard any possible underlaying health issue before considering something paranormal as the cause of these experiences.

Do you like to read/watch/talk about spooky events? If so, does this material influence your dreams?

"sometimes my hand will be automatically floating upwards as if someone or something is lifting up."

Does your hand really float, or is it only the sensation of floating?
Are you aware of any other unexplained occurrences taking place at home?
Have you tried sleeping in another room? If so, did you experience the same or did you have a peaceful sleep?

I hope you find my comment helpful.

Thanks for sharing and good luck.
Rajine in 2pm Terror
Hi and welcome Episodelover413

That is enough to make anyone run in the opposite direction, I believe that a lot of strange things happen around the 2am to 3am time, I've personally experienced a few myself, and usually my sleep breaks around this time when I manage to get some sleep.
TheSweetDevil23 in The Green Light In The Room
Hi JulieK although it's interesting to read your comment here, but the Original poster of this story has written her experience two years back and I doubt they will give reply to you.
Although it's interesting to see such coloured orbs. I always thought orbs can't be seen and can only be visible through certain types of cameras only. I guess I am getting to learn something new everytime I am on this site. Wow amazing. Even I am curious what all colours in orbs signify...
Hi RCRuskin,

As the body is slowly shutting down it causes changes in the chemical balance of the body, which is why there is a smell. I wouldn't necessarily say the body ceases but it does slow down causing less blood circulation and blood flow to organs.
ghostsarecool in One Year Later
I think visitation dreams are so fascinating! My dad's had 3 in his life, and I want to share them at some point. He's also had other paranormal experiences too, and I also want to share those because they're fascinating and so cool to me!
In due respect for that dead Hawaiian person, I DO NOT LIKE to discuss any further.
Let his soul Rest In Peace.

I have seen 2 blue lights they were round with lines in them they didn't move and I have also seen an orange one I don't know what they were unexplainable
were you able to see his "face"?
And was he holding something?
Thanks for sharing
I guess they indeed visit you after a loved one is gone. After crossing the rainbow bridge, my maternal grandfather visited my mother's dreams frequently over the years randomly. In all the dreams, my mum saw my grandpa with a youthful appearance and shining skin. He always smiles at her and speaks softly to her and gives blessings... That's like a recurrent theme of my mother's dream...Hell! That also happened before he passed away in 2005. She kept telling me that something bad is going to happen... And before we even manage to gather our senses, he passed away peacefully in sleep. The mind in unconscious level already knows and sees a lot of things that in daytime it tends to ignore or maybe observes it n stories in different shelves of our memory cells... People usually gets of their problems after a fresh amount of rest... We need to research more over the matters of mind over body...
Hello! Da7Swima,
Nice and a Scary story. At last you said "A tall bearded man came to us kids and said to behave like kids and not a trouble maker." I think that You took his remains and Played Baseball and Perhaps he didn't liked the way you did to his remains. And so he came to warn you. Just a guess.;-)
The_Lost_Voyage has said it to perfection:
"it seems strange to me that a ghost that existed in life long before the modern day invention of elevators would know how to operate one,"

Hello again Da7.

According to Wikipedia, the Queen's Hospital is built on a "site picked in 1860 was an area called Manamana owned by Caesar Kapaʻakea, patriarch of the House of Kalākaua."

No word if the site was donated or sold by the patriarch, or if it was taken by force and after a bloody battle and then built over the remains of the warriors.


Besides, when it first was built, it wasn't the humungous structure of nowadays, but a smaller three storied building that has been growing since then, like showed by the pictures on the following link:


Did your co-workers said if they always saw the apparition going from the sixth to the fifth floor?
Was he dressed like a warrior?
Is this tower part of the original hospital or was it built afterward?

Another possibility could be that the man was a warrior (not necessarily a practicing one, but by lineage) AND worked for the hospital at some point of his life.
Hello Da7.

"Calm down" being like a tempered teenager?"

There's no need to apologize, but please understand that, if people are asking questions about your story is in order to understand it better and, as frustrating as it can be trying to explain your point again, getting defensive is not going to help improving the reader-poster communication.

You are narrating these events not only through the eyes of a ten-year-old kid, but 67 years after they happened. Perhaps some details have been altered or forgotten over time?

After reading your story, I have been doing some research in order to learn a bit about Hawaiian history in the hopes to get to see your experience from a different perspective.

Even though my brief Google research showed only the tip of such a rich culture and its history, I think it is fascinating.

There are several interesting articles about Hawaiian funeral traditions and, it seems, wooden coffins were not used before the arrival of Christianity to the islands.

Therefore, the idea of "Who knows whether Hawaiian burial ceremonies back then used herbal wipes on the body before burial to prolong decaying."
Seems to have nothing to back it up, making me think that the grave you fell into and, perhaps, all the graves in that particular cemetery were not made in the traditional way.

The following link is about old Hawaiian funeral traditions:


I hope you won't take offence on my questioning, I have a very active imagination and, when reading something, my mind tends to create the most hilarious scenarios when facing what I perceive as lack of information.

Could you elaborate more about your fall into the coffin? Obviously, and thankfully, it wasn't buried six feet under, do you have an idea of how deep it was buried?

I imagine the weight of your body made a hole on the wood and you landed inside the box but, wouldn't this mean that the sand displaced by your fall, filled up part of it?
Did you have to crawl over the skeleton in order to reach the bones your friend was asking for?
Did you land on the skeleton?

I know you have said that the skeleton was intact but, were the little bones of the hands and feet attached to each other or were they resting on the bottom of the coffin (the feet bones) and, the hands ones on the pelvis?
(The idea of a skeleton having a belly button is funny!)

Which arm and leg bones did you take: 2 radius, 2 humerus, or one of each from the arm bones; and 2 femurs, 2 tibias, or one of each from the legs?

Have you considered the possibility of the change of the weather having a meteorological explanation?

Would it be possible than one adult, horrified after you kids actions, replaced the bones to their original spot without informing you?

I'll appreciate your feedback.
Hi Da7swima

It's really crazy to play with a skeleton 😳 not to mention disrespectful to the deceased, but I'm glad you and your friends realized that it was wrong.
😨 This was really really terrifying! Thankgod I read this one during daytime. Don't want to go to bed without an ounce of sleep in my eyes, as I am already insomniac. I won't comment on the paranormal aspects much as you managed to scare me enough. Though I had couple of queries to you. Do you still see such presences or experience such encounters even now, or have they stopped now? Also since the both the psychics mentioned that some malicious entity latched to you since your childhood, so did this thing followed you everywhere you lived or worked?
May I ask what are you insinuating "Calm down" being like a tempered teenager?
If I offended you in anyway, please accept my apologies...

Tiger Tia 🐅!
Please write more stories I throughly enjoyed reading about the woman (spirit) with the anklet.
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Sleep Paralysis Over The Years
Hello TheSweetDevil23, always good to hear from you, an inquiring mind is always a good thing. I will address your inquiries as best as I can and bear in mind there are no such things as idiotic questions, if we don't ask, we don't learn.

1) Regarding shadow entities, they could be a couple of things. Some believe they are observers of another dimension/plane of reality, that don't mean to be caught as it were, many seem to disappear when they are spotted. They could also be 'incomplete' ghosts, not fully materialized as you ask about in another question. Maybe because they couldn't gather the energy they needed to fully materialize or perhaps they don't want to be seen or recognized either.

2) Why do so many experiences happen at night? I've read many great ones that do occur in broad daylight for sure. Many ghosts gather energy from different sources its said, some from our bodies, from the air around us, hence cold spots, electricity, and some seem to feed on fear. Night breeds fear, the darkness feeds our imaginations, and what we cannot see in dark corners we imagine. Our culture reflects this, it's why horror movies mostly take place at night and in secluded locations. People are more vulnerable at night, when we sleep for instance. Watch a horror movie in broad daylight and it has a bit different effect on you than at night. I think that's why more of these stories happen at night.

3) Residual is just that, a left over piece/space in time, something that happened that just keeps replaying itself over and over again. There's not an intelligence or ghost persay behind it, so no there's no way to disturb it or gain the notice of what appears to be entities. It's not clear what causes these 'events' to be imprinted on the fabric of time and space, since some seem to be mundane and nothing significant, like seeing someone make a pot of coffee for instance. Some of these sightings could be like viewing a rip in time/space, like seeing something happening now in the same house but separated from the observer by vibration. By that I mean some scientists have come to believe that time doesn't truly exist, past/present/future all are happening at the same time, just at different vibrations, they occupy the same space but are at a different vibrational frequency. In effect your glimpsing the past or maybe even the future. I think its why some people in the US that report seeing ghostly battles on Civil War battle sights are not seeing a residual haunting but actually seeing the battle playing out in the past. Those events were highly emotional, so it could be bleeding through. When 9/11 occurred satellites were reported to have picked up an energy spike due to the high emotional field of everyone on the planet. If it was that strong perhaps it lends to why people had premonitions of those events days/weeks/years before they happened, the high emotional energy output pierced what we deem space/time. Hopefully that makes sense, I'm always happy to clarify.

4) As to how/why spirits manifest the way do, it seems to depend on whether they passed on into the light as it's put or truly stayed behind on earth when they died. If you notice in the stories where a loved one comes back to visit, it seems if they passed onto the other side without difficulty they appear with no problem, usually in brighter light, they're happy, they don't try to scare you, in fact many seem to go out of their way to not scare you. They usually look younger or in their glory days as it were, so they appear the way they want to, and it's never really reported that cold spots or goose bumps accompany these sightings, suggesting these kinds of spirits don't draw energy from their environment to appear. True ghosts on the other hand have not been back home so to speak, appear in distress, as shadows, usually scare people, appear to repeat the same daily activities they participated in life, and have to draw energy to manifest from their environment. How much energy they succeed in drawing seems to dictate whether they appear as a shadow (or even appear at all) or as a full bodied apparition. The full bodied ones seem to last the least amount of time because of the amount of energy required for such a feat. Maybe they can even draw emotional energy from their former home as it were. When you live someplace for a length of time, it absorbs your energy, your emotions, so maybe they're taking back what they gave, think of it kind of like withdrawing a deposit from a bank you've put your money in. Why they appear, it could be, they are purposely wanting to be seen, in some cases they want/need help. Some refuse to believe they are dead, a form of denial, so they just go one living 'life' as it were. Others that refuse to acknowledge death even seem to be upset with what they consider 'strangers' in their home. Others seem to delight in tormenting people, as they did in life, only now they cannot be jailed for it.

Anyways hopefully that helps answer some of your questions, some questions lead to others. That's the wonderful mystery of life! Good Luck!

Hello Da7swima, and thanks for sharing your experience! Quite harrowing being confined in an elevator with an otherwordly being with no where to go. I am intrigued by that encounter in particular, you say you are sure it was the spirit of a warrior? I'm not trying to shed doubt on your experience by any means as you were the one that was actually there, but it seems strange to me that a ghost that existed in life long before the modern day invention of elevators would know how to operate one, especially in light of the fact most ghosts repeat the actions they had in life, in essence going about their daily activities as if they are not dead? By the way what was on the 5th floor where the ghost departed the elevator? Still and all a chilling encounter to say the least!
That skeleton was intact as us kid seen.
We used the arms & legs bones as a bat playing baseball.

Who knows whether Hawaiian burial ceremonies back then used herbal wipes on the body before burial to prolong decaying.
That grader equipment was driven across the gravesite on hard dirt roadway to dig a hole.

That skeleton was intact & not decayed.
You did not see as us kids seen. Hard to believe huh?
Who knows whether Hawaiian burial ceremonials bodies were chemically or herbal wiped before buried. That could prolong decaying.
What we saw & played with the arm & leg bones using them as a bat playing baseball sounds unreal.

That tall bearded Hawaiian man we saw on the beach could have been that person (spirit) from that grave.
Later us kids were talking of that man whether he was the spirit from that grave.
Wait... What? I didn't say that you drove the grader man! Glad to hear I'm the one who needs to read properly 😜 😆 😆
Da7swima, hope you're doing well.

I'm not sure if English is your first language or not but the sentence structure just seems odd to me, so I had to reread some passages more than once.

You wrote: Upon playing and running on the sand towards the highway, the sand caved down on me and I fell through a wooden coffin.

My understanding: While running around and playing on the sandy beach, and in the graveyard, the sand collapsed underneath you.

It may seem odd to some how sand can hold the weight of a heavy piece of equipment yet not be able to support a small (ish) child, but there are many factors that play into it. What I suspect happened is that the grave created a cavity below ground, and overtime various geological processes enlarged the cavity until you happened along at just the right, or maybe just the wrong, moment. Your foot made contact with the weakened sand, and it gave way.

The construction equipment was placed to the side of this void, on more solid ground.

Thus, the sand collapsed underneath you but supported the grader.

As for the skeleton being 'intact' versus disarticulated, as the body decays underground, the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bits of skin that hold the bones together weaken and fail, and ultimately cease to be. Bones being mineralized tissue sticks around longer, but also tends to stay pretty much in the same place, relative to other bones, unless things happen. Things being floods, landslide, scavenging of remains, or people happening upon the bones and moving them.

I find it easy to believe that the skeleton was still intact, but also it was disarticulated, meaning the tissues connecting bones together was no longer present.

TL;DR (but if you got this far, you probably did read all I wrote):

While playing on the beach, you collapsed a void under the sand, exposing a grave. You and your friends investigated and fooled around with the remains, and then spooky stuff happened. Putting the bones back helped things return to normal.

Does this sound right?

And just one other question: The bearded Hawaiin man, if I read correctly was not your neighbor or your neighbor's roommate? If that's so, then it was probably the spirit of the person whose grave you disturbed.
Thank you for the insights and the valuable suggestions. I know I had been going through a difficult phase of my life but you guys are really helping me, especially you and Lady-Glow. Also I have some curiosity about some different sort of paranormal entities. I hope you can answer them or anyone else as well can reply if they see this comment of mine.
1. I had mentioned about seeing and feeling the presence of shadow entities. So are these shadow entities spirits of our loved ones, or of other human beings or are they kind of manifestations of our own energy and thoughts which starts getting rooted in the place we live, work and sleep? Are they even like proper spirits or something else of other dimensions?
2. Also, I know this is a very very idiotic question but why is it that we mostly see or even get these paranormal experiences at night? I know, I know even couple of my own experiences had happened during daytime but it wasn't that intense.
3. Also I had noticed that in most of the experiences of people,, its usually a residual haunting loop. So if I disturb it, let's say with or without knowing it, will the entities around me notice my presence or will it keep going on as usual with its usual routine?
Lastly I want to know what factors could make/convince a spirit/entity to appear in a proper shape or form? I always thought or rather assumed that a spirit needs energy from its surroundings to take a solid shape or form and if not a solid one,, even an inch of materialising in some clouded or foggy form, needs lots of energy, strong intention and connection with the place it haunts to come out in that manner. I had already asked this question on someone else's post but now I am feeling that I shouldn't have. Its better to get responses on my discussion thread rather than on someone else's. Lack of tactfulness on my part. Sorry for that.

So I am waiting eagerly for your response.

Tiger-Tia Please write more if you got some other experiences to tell us. I think I am not wrong to assume that on behalf of other YGS readers that we all would like to read your posts. Also, since you mentioned the presence of the female entity in the house for a long time, is it likely that she maybe died or lived a part of her life in that piece of land before your grandparents had moved to that place and started residing over there?
But then I believe that not everything can be found out about such a paranormal entity when it has been going on for such a long time. I have few questions though going in in my mind right now. Is it just one entity or there are more than one spirit lurking around in the corners of the home? And if its only her, then does she gives any signs of her presence during daytime? Or she only comes out at night scaring the daylights of the family members?...I am sorry for asking so many questions, but I am so curious. Your post had left silly questions in my mind...
Another amazing experience. This site never fails to surprise me. After reading so many different stories especially the ones which seem actually relatable and more real, I now really believe that there are some things still beyond our comprehension levels.
I still now pray to god that I never get to see a full form appearance of a spirit infront of me. To see a entity like that in such proximity inside an elevator...OHMYGOD! 😳 I just now realised you were with that presence until it went to 5th level. I would have closed my eyes and just prayed to god... To materialise in a total form like that, I always wonder if there are different other factors behind it. I always believed that spirits only materialise totally in such forms when they take energy from its surroundings. Can someone enlighten me on this topic if someone knows anything about spirits taking such solid forms and shapes?
Calm down... With all due respect but, you talk and loose your temper as easily as a teenager, though you are supposed to be old enough to be my mother.
TravisCannabis. The beach sand dipped me on the brown wooden casket.
What you mean a 10 year old kid held the weight of a grader? Read my story properly. I did not drive the Grader. The Hawaiian man works at a Construction site & drives it back home. He drove the Grader to bury the brown burlap of bones.
Got it? Besides I am a tough 10 y4 old tomboy!

Lady-glow, the skeleton was intact! The hand bones were crossed over below its belly button. You did not see what all of us kids saw.
I'm struggling to understand this part of your story:

"a tall skeleton intact remains with its both hands crossed below its belly button"

Actually, once the soft tissues of a corpse have decayed, the skeleton is left like only disarticulated bones.

Beach sand cave in (dropped down), so I landed on a brown wooden casket!
Really bro? The sand caved in under a 10 yo kid but held the weight of a grader? 😆 🤔 😳

Hi fellow South African

If I was you I'd probably leave that house the same night itself 😆, I can imagine that there would be a lot of supernatural occurances there since you mentioned that the house was built on an army base and attached morgue, most probably a lot of earth bound spirits that passed on untimely and where there's restless spirits that never lived out their lives fully there's bound to be other things that never walked this earth amongst them.
Hi Da7swima
You have experienced some amazing incidents, scary but amazing, hospitals generally have a lot of ghostly activity but add a old burial ground that the hospital is built on in the mix and one would definitely encounter more than their fair share of supernatural experiences.
Scary-Annabelle, since those encounters I have never seen anything thereafter. It was a chicken skin experiences. I never believe what friends tell me that they see ghosts until it happens to you!

Lady-Glow, that white figure was top half.
The Medical Center is built on a Hawaiian graveyard in 1859. There were Warriors then. What I saw was indeed a Hawaiian warrior & NOT a former employee.

For some weird reason, the presence of so many locks is making me more uncomfortable then the image of the odd entity there in the photo.
Its giving me claustrophobic sensation, so no wonder even the presence of spirits and energies here and there would give such vibes to all the people working there.

On top of it, there are glass doors facing each other and even across from each other. So I feel it is acting even as a portal of both positive, negative and neutral energies entering our world, resulting in clashes of them. No wonder you can feel and see them, considering you are a clairvoyant too.
Do you witnessed anything after these types of Incidents? Quite Scary Indeed...
oh my! That sounds so much like my own experience. I still remember like it happened yesterday where I saw my own body sleeping in the bed in my favourite set of blue nightwear and my soul or consciousness looking down at myself. I also remember this transparent line or thread still sticking back to my body. I clearly even remember this weird odd sensation of getting jolted so hard inside my own body that the accompanied sound coming after it was damn loud. It was like as if a bike had just kickstarted loudly out of nowhere... 😨
But mine happened due to less sleep and being stressed out due to my career. Maybe try to keep some sharp object under your pillow. It worked for me. Or maybe if some senior YGS read this and give you better suggestions, go for it.
TheSweetDevil23 in The Shape Shifter
wow... I actually imagined myself in your place when I was reading this. Did you managed to know anything about the history? Has it been empty for a long time?
I remember watching a series on youtube regarding the paranormal events and happenings in Hawaii and I was just taken aback by the number of legit paranormal activities and I'm guessing your experience is just one of them.

Thanks for sharing!

Zaruje in "toilet Terror"
I don't know if I was going to laugh upon seeing the title LOL. But as I was reading your experience, it sure was scary. Ever thought of just, maybe, having your own place with your boyfriend? Since I'm assuming you two are already forming your own family? Anyways, it's a good thing that you had answers as to why the paranormal happenings.

-Z ❤
Welcome to YGS.

Hospitals are bound to store many of the strong emotions of the people living in there, either for a short period or in more regular basis. Add to this the history of the place, and it is understandable to have some resident ghosts.

From my perspective, the ghost in the elevator seems to be the spirit of a former worker following his daily routine, and not the one from a warrior. Still, it was an unnerving encounter.

"a half human white figure moving towards the opposite end of the floor."

Was it the upper or the lower half or the person? Or, perhaps, the left or the right side of a body? (just kidding!)

Thanks for sharing.
Hi skeptic, interesting story. Just a couple things to add to the comments.

One of my two dogs has had similar incidents of barking at a wall/window in my home. She is also the one who is afraid to go outside sometimes, even when she really has to "go." She'll head out with our other border collie, happy as can be, then do a split second U-turn right back in and runs under the bed... Anyway, when your dog barks like that, take photos! If you can, have the Iphone "live" feature on, and here's why: when this happened to us, I took video and then I took "live" photo shots. Nothing was visible in the video, or in the still version of the live shots, but when you pressed the "live" feature, there was a shadow figure looking in the window! Yes, it was super creepy.

And just Friday, we had "new" relatives flying to our city to meet. Basically, it is my half brother we just discovered existed, and he flew down with his wife for a first meeting. As their plane was descending into our local airport, and even though she had her phone on airplane mode, her iphone received a text that was from something called "milk" and it had a PDF document about our shared father (who died in 1968) attached. They both said they had NOT researched him from their phones, had never googled him from their phones. This text just popped up! I had spoken out loud to my (dead) parents lastt week to let us know SOMEHOW if he and my mom knew what was happening, and I'm taking this as a sign. Might there have been a reason someone from the other side would want to call your home phone on that particular day? Birthday or anniversary? This is the second time in five years our phones have done something supernatural. We think.
Hi Scoops,
I can't help but wonder if you were perhaps the victim of phone number spoofing. Scammers will sometimes change the info on caller ID to read a different name and number than who they really are. I know I've had calls supposedly from me to me on the same phone 😳.
However this doesn't explain (if that is indeed the answer) why your dog acted like he did. Added together certainly is odd to say the least.
Hello, Scoops.

Not sure why, but this story got my attention. Perhaps it is your wonderful attention to detail and lack of presuppositions. I went back and also read your other stories; glad things have been peaceful for you lately (barring this incident, anyway)!

One or two points I have questions about first: Was your phone face-up or face-down? Is your chair upholstered with fuzzy/static-y material? Has it been cold/electrically-charged lately? Is your chair powered at all (does it have any wires running through it)? Had you recently dialed your landline from your cell?

Now, I have never owned an Apple device, so correct me if I am wrong in something here, but my theory here is perhaps you could have been armchair-dialed from static charges in the air/from your chair's fabric chancing to pull up your calling app and tapping on a recent number to redial it. Since it sounds like your phone was not locked, it may have taken only 2 chance static discharges to make this improbable call. If this is the case, then wow! What a coincidence, and just be glad it did not happen to select a more awkward recent call, like your boss or something. Of course, one cannot necessarily rule out electrical discharges of a more paranormal nature, but this may be another potential explanation.

As for the dog behavior, don't ya just hate it when they do that?! One of my dogs will occasionally bolt upright and start barking her head off - scaring the daylights out of anyone who happens to be nearby - and it often takes a little bit for me and my human senses to realize what set her off. But usually I get it: Oh, *now* I hear that yappy dog barking halfway down the street; Oh, that's a car door, somebody's here; Ah, the other dog is tauntingly waving his fluffy tail at the other end of the hallway; stuff like that. And then sometimes I can't figure it out; admittedly that can get a bit eerie.

So, my questions here are: Is that dining room wall an outer wall in your home? Does it have a window or a vent that might let in an unusual sound or smell that maybe you didn't/couldn't detect in the moment? What was the other dog doing? With mine, I know if one starts barking, the others tend to join in. Funny that it sounds like the older dog was chill. Not that that really helps narrow down what the stimulus could have been. Has anything else happened since the posting that has clarified this at all? Has the behavior repeated itself, did you find out a bear or something went through the area recently, or there was some big disturbance or something the next block or two over (sirens carry further for fuzzy ears than for ours)?

Anyway, thanks for sharing! Here's hoping things stay peaceful again from here on out.
Heya Travis! About the ghosts age- its the same when you see a person in real and you can simply guess his/her age. I wrote their "age" just to show how they looked. I didn't know their real age:)
