Filmbuff1234 in The Banshee
In most variations of the banshee legend, they are wailing and the washing bloodstained clothes of people about to die in the woods. I haven't heard of them entering houses either. I agree with everyone else - it probably isn't a banshee. But I have 2 theories though - if it was a spirit it might have been a murdered woman who tried to get help but no one helped her and the death the next day was a coincidence. My second is it is some other sort of entity warning of death. I'm sorry for the loss of your friend.
valkricry in The Banshee
Like most of you, I have my doubts if this woman was indeed a banshee. According to many dusty old tombs of lore, the banshee is best known for her wailing or keening. It's said this cry can be heard for miles, and quite chilling to hear. Some narratives described glass windows breaking when the high notes of the plaintive cry were struck.
As for speaking, there are a few accounts where the banshee has spoken out to tell who would die and how, but not in one is there mention of them being violent or even mischievous. And the lady in this story seems quite vocal and unhinged.
Zaruje in The Banshee
I think the author won't participate in this discussion. Are banshees suppose to be rude? Maybe it was an actual human being you've encountered. Anyways, who knows.
Bibliothecarius in The Banshee
[Ha! 😆 RC, that's priceless. With Iman here explaining what a Banshee is and -Hana- explaining who can see ghosts (Lady In The Mall), there must have been some sort early rush for the full moon on June 16.]

Greetings, Iman,

All Celtic peoples of the British Isles have similar legends on this point: the Irish Banshee, the Scottish Nigheag na h-àth, and (as I discovered while looking up the spelling of the Scottish one) the Welsh Cyhyraeth. While it is possible to sneak up on *one* of the Scottish ones (there are several different types) to discover one's fate, the Irish Banshee is a creature of Wild Magic (as in Nature, not Chaos). They are fleeting & ethereal; terrifying in their lack of physical substance and their predictions of death. My Irish mythology references are at school, so I can't verify this immediately, but I can't recall any description of Banshees interacting with ordinary human beings in the familiar legends. Speaking to other supernatural creatures, yes; to ordinary people, no.

The Banshee's distant wailing and keening is described as "bone-chilling" in several accounts. There are descendants of the great Irish & Scottish families who have claimed to hear their respective families' Banshees in both Canada and the United States. Again, though, in the distance or around the perimeter of the family property, *not* banging on the windows or doors.

The woman you encountered sounds terrifying, I grant you. I, too, would have called the police out of concern for my welfare. (Did she shout at you in an Irish accent?) Calling the emergency services because she claimed "I'm hurt. I need help" was the ONLY smart option for you to take, and I fully support your having done the right thing; however, I'm still having trouble seeing how this was a supernatural interaction, rather than a terrifying person who may have been 1) mentally unbalanced, 2) drunk, 3) genuinely injured, or 4) attempting to gain entry into your home through deceit.

If there are some apparently-minor details that you have left out of your initial story, I'd like to know what they were. Here on YGS, we try to apply logic & common sense first, to rule out unsettling but natural events. After we clear that hurdle, intuition, guesses, and investigative conversations take place. We do this habitually, and I know that at least one of my experiences was far less traumatic after one of the Moderators asked me a perfectly sensible and straightforward question.

I look forward to your responses to the questions RC, lady-glow, & I have about this event.

Thanks,
Biblio.
I can't offer an explanation either as it only happened once. I feel like maybe this was a glimpse of a different mom, maybe from an alternate universe or something like that because the pattern is there. My mom was coming from the kitchen, just like every night, but things were off just a little bit. The red nightgown and her not acknowledging me as she walked by. Whatever it may have been, thank you for the comment.
Hi, LuciaJacinta.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments.

I believe in demonic entities as well. I have been witness to some very scary stuff. I've been around two different people that were possessed. I don't know if it's just my luck but I seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I will be sharing those experiences with you all next.

Yes, you are correct about a mother's love being very powerful. I hope my love and prayers keep my children safe from any kind of evil. I'm lucky to have my mother still with me, there are times that I have gotten out of some pretty sticky situations and I know that my mother's prayers for my protection has a lot to do with it, it's like I can feel it.
RCRuskin in The Banshee
I almost said the same thing, Lady Glow:) Where was the wailing? I've heard of a banshee's curse, but not a cursing banshee before.
Katiebug in Elizabeth
LuciaJacinta, Thank you for your comment - I'm glad you like the stories. As for your question:

I think it had something to do with the family itself. The wall we found the death certificate in was also a wall in which we discovered a nearly destroyed fireplace. The fireplace looked as though it had caught fire and partially burned the walls around it. Someone had tried to fill in the space inside the fireplace before boarding it over; there were clothes, shoes, toys, papers of all sorts. We believe they hadn't realized they were throwing in the death certificate as well. But it's also where we recovered a few family photos as well, so they may have known what they were throwing away.
lady-glow in The Banshee
That woman was too interactive and rude for a banshee.

I second RCRuskin's question about the police findings.
Thank you Rhino ~ I'm a CG vet but worked with navy personnel as a contractor up until 13 years ago. So I'm not totally up an modern uniforms...
RCRuskin in The Banshee
Hello, Iman. I hope you're doing well after this experience.

So many questions, but I'll start with this one: What did the police find when they arrived?
I saw my wife out of her body a couple of times over the years and on one of those occasions she had some vivid memories that almost validated that particular account beyond a shadow of a doubt. It doesn't surprise me that you can't recollect being out of your body with your boyfriend picking up on your energy with clarity.

Here's my crackpot theory as to why, for what it's worth. Our universe is a field of energy and as spiritual beings having a physical experience inside a sub set within a greater reality, we enter into the earth Matrix from birth with a certain amount of spiritual energy usually by design.

Some souls enter into the body with sub 40 percent levels of energy, these folk are the type of people who go through life and never experience the paranormal "period" and we do need these group of souls to keep us all sane and grounded within a world that needs a balance of cosmic energy to keep it with in it's perspective of what it is. " The School of Hard Knocks for dummies with total amnesia."

Other souls enter into the Matrix using 70 percent levels of energy which generally allows them to see and hear all the spooky stuff like most of the good folk here do on YGS.

And then you have those souls who enter into the Matrix using 90 percent of their spiritual energy... These folks are generally clairvoyant and see the paranormal straight up and remember all detail with clarity. My guess is, you are one of these souls who entered into the world limited with spiritual energy and recall to experience what ever it is you need to experience.

Your boyfriend IMO is more psychic than you are and probably needs to read between the lines. Perhaps he saw you crying out of body because of the situation he now finds himself in. Perhaps it's another? Most likely you two probably have some lessons to learn like most of us do. Don't be put off by his account, use it as a wake up call to change the situation you and him now find yourself in.

Regards Aussie
AllisonJO
Please forgive my slow reply. I would go back, even though it is scary. Next time I will bring at least tobacco and spirits for the souls of the departed. I hope you get to visit the Caribbean again. I found my old phone with the pics from that trip.

From what it sounds you and I were standing very near the same place at Annaberg, I was maybe in the space above where you were at. We were on an open coral stone floor attached left of a space with one wall on the side facing the hill, and a round hole or window at the peak of that wall. I also visited in 2017.

The sugar mill on anoher (cinnamon?) plantation there also had horrible feelings. We accidentally got some very odd photos at that place. Those were the only sugar mills I visited.

Best of Luck in Your Travels
Bettina Marie
Hey Rook,
Just to say I hope you're well and it's nice to see you back!

AugustaM in I Am Thirsty
I tried looking for a creature out of local lore that would fit the description of a sinister looking thirsty old woman with blood lust in her eyes and didn't find much (perhaps someone with a better handle on local traditions would have better luck). This is the best I could find:

HUKLOBAN - (Tagalog) A witch who could kill anyone simply by pointing a finger at him and without using any potion. It could destroy a house by merely saying so. The Hukloban appear as a very old, crooked woman.

AugustaM in A Ride To Remember
This topic of ghost riders and the deadly havoc they seem to foreshadow or create has come up before and quite recently too in an account from Sri Lanka. Here is a link: https://www.yourghoststories.com/real-ghost-story.php?story=26455

Perhaps there may be some answers for you there, Eerie.
I'll second all de-stinkifying suggestions! I collect and sell vintage clothes and have come up against many an unholy stench while doing so! The options they suggested are amongst the very best! Also try emptying the closet, putting some very cheap vodka in a bottle and spraying the living daylights out of the whole thing (ceiling too) and letting it dry with the doors open. Vodka is an excellent deodorizer. And I apologize in advance if mentioning such things offends any sensibilities but adding feminine wash products like summer's eve in a 1:1 mix with the vodka also works wonders! Then make sure you spray down everything and let it dry in the sun before replacing it into the closet.

In case you may be dealing with something less straightforward than natural (though tenacious) stench, while the closet is empty, place a stick of lit incense on (a plenty wide and plenty sturdy) plate with intent. Say what you mean for it to do before putting it down. Tell anything negative that it is not welcome and must leave etc. Then plop the incense down (well away from walls and door for safety) and close the doors. That's my best suggestion, anyway 🤓such methods have seemed to work fairly well in my 1925 apartment next to the mass grave 🖤
zaruje,
There really is nothing you can do at this time. I'll need to turn this over to the site admin, as it's a technical problem with the site. Some glitch or something. Try not to worry much over it. A favorite poster list is just that; a list to make it easier for you to follow posters you've enjoyed. I'm sure Martin will get to it as soon as he can. Thanks for alerting us to the problem. 😊
NitroFuel765 in The Invisible Fiend
Hi SassyCat

Yeah, I do still believe in ghosts and it did give me a spiritual awakening although It was kind of frustrating that nobody seemed to believe me. Mostly I am just happy that I encountered a good entity rather than a malevolent demon 😁.
Eerie69 in Grandma Knows
That was very moving. I am sorry for your loss. I totally can feel you. My grandmother thought I was the worst grandson she ever had, but when the time that she is about to live, I was the only one there with her and she can't even remember my name ❤
Valkricry I already did that and was just redirected to an error 404. What do I need to do now?
Hi Letchen, thanks for your feedback. I was surprised at how freely our guide spoke of the hauntings. I remember the people working the bar there were quite open about it as well. I kind of wish I had had more time in the area to maybe have more experiences.
oraclemache in I Think I Got Possesed
A true DID is not as common as one might think, and would require severe abuse to occurred to the child during the formation of the personality. Do you remember anything at all? I see that you wrote this in 2016 but I am going to write you anyway on the off chance you see it. There are different degrees of disassociation. For the type that you transitions like this, would mean you had suffered some severe trauma in the formative years of your mind. I am not a physician, and you should not take my advice over one. I am only going to give you my thoughts based off of my own experience. I had something like you describe occur, except no one was around, so I don't know what I was doing for 5 hours. I worried that I had DID just like you. I think your channeling. Your waking up, in theory, and a hijacker took advantage of your newly aware abilities, and your guard being down. That is a theory. Again, I am not a doctor and you should get checked out to be sure. If you do not have DID which I doubt, maybe consider you are a gifted medium.
Hi James,
What an interesting story and I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Native man held a grudge against the whites. I think your idea of going back to leave flowers at the gate would be a wonderful gesture and perhaps show that not all the white people were bad! Thank you for sharing your story and please let us know if you do decide to make that trip! ((HUGS))
I have two thoughts on this I'd like to share. First, if it gives you comfort for your Grandfather checking in on you when you were having a trying day, then appreciate the positive that the after thought gave you.

Second, what you described as "fatigues" may have been current issue, Navy Work Utilities type II (Urban) or similar brand new issue type III These are tan and green mottled blob type patterned. (Cuddle bear was right about fleet personnel wearing the camo blue) The type II & III are worn by Navy expeditionary forces, like SEALS. They are sometimes tasked with things like making a site survey for executive protection details in advance of a VIP visit, and to determine if the route they are planning to use or a place for a meeting has issues like vacant buildings in an industrial area.
Hope this helps, only you know what you felt😎

LuciaJacinta in Shook From My Bed
That's very interesting. I'm not sure if it's related though... I would think the ashes were probably scattered over a favorite place, ocean, park etc... But now you have the residue of the person/s in the box not attached to their ashes. I'd think burying the boxes would be a good thing. I'm not sure where I'd bury them though.

Try to find out more about the names on the boxes. Were they like first and last names or just like a first name. Don't rule out it could be a pet cremated too. I have know lots of people that cremate pets.
LightMight in Mini-tornado
Well Ruskin, that never even occurred to me! And yeah, that could definitely be another possibility; that maybe they weren't related to one another at all? 🤔
Recently I went on a tangent reading about energy vortexes and portals, thinking maybe it had something to do with the energy in that particular area which I once lived? I didn't really fine anything definitive yet...
Hi Crazypaws. Thanks for your interesting account. They may not admit it yet many South African people have some really strange beliefs. Your guide was not lying when he spoke of hauntings in the area. Witchcraft is widely practiced. I actually worked with a lady who proudly stated that she had just qualified as "a witch". There is also a river that runs in that area. Certain people will not dare enter that river as they believe spirits of the dead stay in the water and once in, you do not come out. Strange but true.
I had a red arm came out from under the bed and infinitely stretch as its arm kept getting longer and longer I tried to run away but time slowed and I wasn't making any progress until I finally snapped out of it.
Do you have a history of sleepwalking?
Do you like to read/watch any material that could make you have violent dreams?
Is there any kind of paranormal activity at the apartment/building?

If this happens again, it would be a good idea to start a journal of the events and to get a medical evaluation in case there's an underlying health issue.
Interesting! Thanks for sharing, it helps a lot. So it's unlikely that this was Grandpa, but still strange.
First a quote, then questions...

"Most of us have experienced mild dissociation, which is like daydreaming or getting lost in the moment while working on a project. However, dissociative identity disorder is a severe form of dissociation, a mental process which produces a lack of connection in a person's thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. Dissociative identity disorder is thought to stem from a combination of factors that may include trauma experienced by the person with the disorder. The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism -- the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that's too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self."

So have you experienced any 'long term' situations where 'escaping' need (s/ed) to be mental/emotional rather than physical? Or a sudden 'traumatic experience' that still traumatizes you? DID is hard to diagnose. If something like this applies then it may be DID. If not then there are other questions, questions like... Do you know the history of the Location of the Apartments you are staying in, in particular, the one your Family is in? Have there been any other 'paranormal' occurrences in this apartment or around the Family/ yourself? I ask because it is 'rare' for an individual's first experience to be 'Possession'. Not impossible, but rare indeed. Another possibility is this... Are you sensitive?
If so then perhaps you were 'open' to the spirit world and a spirit did indeed slip in. Especially if you are sensitive and are unaware of your abilities.

Please let us know...

Respectfully,

Rook
RCRuskin in Mini-tornado
Here I am, a bit bored, rain falling outside, and I thought I'd catch up on comments, and something just occurred to me. We're assuming that the thing you saw at work and the thing at home are the same entity. It is also possible, they are two entities of the same sort and there is no connection between them, other than both being witnessed by you.
Hi again, James. Again, I must say I am far from an expert on this but while looking up other things, I learned that Manitoulan Island is named after the Manitou, what Native Americans call any spirit but most especially the Great Spirit. So I find it interesting that you saw a Native American spirit on an island named after Native American Spirits.
I am so sorry for the loss of your baby. I am completely incapable of dealing with that sort of loss as well. I hope your little girl carries on strong for many years to come! Have you thought about getting her a new companion? It may do you both a lot of good. ❤

I am glad you were able to reconnect with him - that must be such a comfort to know he is ok and happy! My grandfather was able to reach through and give me that sort of absolution when my beloved cat died - I wrote about it in "Peanut and Pa".

Give your baby a kiss for me!
Yow I just accidentally added you as my fav poster on accident. How do I undo this? Mods please help me. It's not that I don't like you or anything, it's just because I clicked it on accident. Mods please help me
Is it not? Definitely on there when I looked and I don't see a reason why they possibly took it down. I've taken a couple but most people there are skeptics and I'll look like an idiot taking random photos. Nothing came up - also, it was only a few that came up unusual. Seeing as you have asked I'll take some today and see if anything comes up. I'll try to find another website that says about the history too.

Are you serious bro? Do you think it would have been a good idea for those dudes to kill the blue hair just cause? 🙄
If they're chasing the bacon why the bullet hit it on the side and not on its butt? 🤔
This is a cool story! Full of actions. I wish I could have this kind of experience. The best ever.

Why is it they did not kill the old man? 🤔
Thank you, Augusta. 😊

LuciaJ,
I'm all about having the house and my marriage blessed. What could it possibly hurt? New house, new wife, new life experiences. Pushing out negatives in my life is always a good plan.
As to your question about precipitating events... There was one potentially significant, and / or possibly related item. I hesitated to mention it because it had always been my experience that the dead are dead, and incapable of anything else. Like I said in the main story I used to work homicides, unattended deaths and the like. I've seen a lot of death in my career and generally take the position it's a natural conclusion we all face.
That said, when cleaning out the utility shed of garbage and junk left behind by a former owner, we found two empty cremation boxes, with the residue of ash in them. Like someone had scattered the ashes and kept the empty boxes. It was a little creepy, I suppose, but not ominous. Both boxes were out of California, having died a decade apart. I could not find an obit on one with only a date of death and a name on the canister. The funeral home was less than helpful, citing "confidentially issues" (which by the way end at death in almost every state) A lady in her 70's.
The other was an adult nephew of the former owner. It does not appear either descendent ever lived here. This was just where the next of kin lived, and where the remains were sent. Why someone would retain the boxes is beyond me.
Thank you for the comment. Be safe.
-Rhino06
Oraclemache,
Your story was very interesting to me. Then I reached the end and I felt that I needed to say something.
I feel your pain and sorrow as I too lost my 17 year old daughter to suicide January 2018. I have often wondered if there was some other reason than mental illness for her decision, but we do not know as there was no note left behind.
I have been convinced for years that my husband is sensitive to the paranormal and that he has something negative attached to him. I feel as though this attachment has moved with us over the last 20 years. Our first house we lived in was very active and he had horrible, realistic nightmares. I always felt uneasy in certain parts of the house. When we moved from that house, the nightmares stopped and no activity was present. Then we moved to our current house and the nightmares started up again. We have been living there for the last 11 years. This current house has always felt off to me, my daughter had made the same comment to me several times.
I have not posted on this site before as I don't have anything specific to relate. It's just a lot of bad feelings, something feels off/negative. Items will disappear and then I will find them later on in the exact spot that I looked. My husband really does not like to discuss his experiences, I think he is afraid that if he talks about it that he is inviting more trouble.

Anyway, I just wanted to reach out to you as we both are suicide loss survivors of the worst kind, our own children. I hope this finds you well, as most days I am not okay.
I also liked this story and would like to know more. Somehow I missed it the first time it was published awhile ago.

Wow, never thought of looking up obits like that. Neat.

I agree that its a convoluted tale but still interesting.

There could be a plausible explanation for the coughing up of water. I've heard stories of kids "dry" drowning. It's a type of delayed drowning that happens earlier in the day and a few hours later the water they swallowed earlier drowns them

My thought though there may have been some mental illness on someone's part in the family when you say stuff like the mirrors painted and you came to find the windows nailed shut and etc... Perhaps they were just eccentric or were actually seeing some spirits I don't know. But interesting story. Really would like to hear either way if it's made up or not.
LuciaJacinta in Keeps Coming Back
I always enjoy your submissions Haven. You certainly have an *active* life.

Interesting theory of the time slip. Hmmm. Could be.

I'm more of the demonic entity or something along those lines theory though. I understand not everyone believes in that though. Sometimes what ever these nasties are they just don't leave and hang around and I'm not sure why no matter how many blessings or sages we do. Sometimes houses retain the same spirits for generations.

Learning to live with it is the issue I think. I'd just daily say whatever prayers you believe in to protect you. Envision white light surrounding your family.

A priest once told me a mother's love is one of the most powerful things there is. Focus on the love you have for him and use that to protect him from whatever entities may be annoying him. Tell whatever it is to leave him alone. You just never know if these things are good or bad so regardless, use your love to shield him.

Hoping for all the best. Take care.
May I know where in cebu is this place located? I really want to visit this place.
brinton28 in Mobile Legends
Hello sender are you from cebu? It show's you know how to speak cebuano I am curious...
Perhaps a thorough cleansing of your home according to your beliefs would be a reasonable place to start. Then, as it is believed that such rituals do not effect benign entities, if your little girl remains, ask her what she wants next time you see her.
Great sleuthing, Biblio! I am sure there is info out there to dig up but I will stay my shovel until we hear back from the OP. I found their account to be very engaging and would love to hear more particularly about the entities that they saw and the history of the land.

Hope to hear from you, Aikia and welcome!
sunshinemilia in Jealous Ghost
Thank you for sharing!
It sounds to me that whatever is attached to him is feeding off his energy. This poltergeist that has attached itself to your brother feeds off of how miserable it is making him. I don't believe the ghost to be jealous but rather trying to get rid of anything that could get in the way of it's energy supply. Having a significant other can be a very happy experience! Which is bad news for the spirit that feeds off of the depression of your brother. I would suggest having someone not just pray over his house but to bless and cleanse your brother of this spirit, that can be a priest or an authority member of any religion you follow.
Hey StaceyK!

The dog part was very intense! I'm glad that the dog did not harm your grandmother.

But was the dog just a watcher? Or you think the dog was just waiting for the perfect time to attack?

Nice story! 🤔
Hello Kai046!

I'm sorry about your brother.

I was just wondering if he also do that to your parents?

Nice story!
majarlika012 in My Psychic Grandma
I had a dream just a week ago that my tooth went missing. I told that to my mother when I woke up the next day. There is a superstition that when you dreamed of a tooth missing there is someone from your circle (family or friends) who will die or experience a tragedy. After a few hours, while at work, my mama phoned me saying that her aunt (sister of her mom) died. That event doesn't make me a psychic, right?:)
Hi Hansolo (my favourite characrer too)!
Welcome to YGS and thank you for sharing your story with us, but please don't be sad! It's never too late to tell your Dad what's in your heart. All you have to do is say the words and 'he will hear you'! ((Big Hugs))
[at] AugustM
Thank you for the reply 😊 That is a very comforting story! I agree that much of the time, dreams are just our brains kind of playing out the day in weird ways, and like you said, that some are more meaningful/connected to our waking life in a physical way.
Filmbuff1234 in My Psychic Grandma
That's an interesting opinion lady-glow. I don't know if all things happen for a reason or if premonitions are just a way of saying goodbye but it is entirely possible.
AugustaM in My Ongoing Story
I am very glad you have been able to move on to better things and a partner who understands and believes you! I was getting frustrated with your ex-husband just reading your account - I can only imagine what it was like living it. It sounds as though you may be haunted more so than any structure where you have lived. There can be various reasons for such a thing down to simply having been born sensitive in a way that entities gravitate towards. It seems as though at least one of the spirits is a recurring character in your life - maybe have a look back at family albums and see if anything stands out? Have you posted the photos or videos anywhere? We would love to see them! 🕵

In terms of an a-religious way of handling these issues, that may be a bit tricky - religion is the way humanity has always sought to deal with death, spirits etc. Your only alternative is science and I don't personally know of any scientific methodology for handling these things. There is some hypothetical scientific reasoning behind cleansings, however (https://upliftconnect.com/science-behind-smudging/). And you don't necessarily have to pray to any power in particular when you do it - just affirm your own authority over your home and establish your "paranormal entity ground rules". Granted, it is none of my business and I don't mean to imply that I expect an answer by any means but when you say that you are not really a religious person, do you mean that you are an atheist (nothing wrong with that) or that you just haven't found a belief system that fits? If the former, address the issue from a humanist angle if the latter, maybe hit the library and do a bit of research on various belief systems - whether it is a belief in your own efficacy or an additional boost from one higher power or another, knowing what you believe in will help.
I am getting somewhat of a "Donnie Darko" meets creepy pasta vibe here. It is possible for two people (or more) to have the sams hallucination and many such cases have been reported - with similar drug cocktails and stimuli experienced by both young men, I would say the possibility of such an experience would only increase.
A very nice experience... Very similar to what I experienced... Yes they visit us... In times of distress...
lady-glow in My Psychic Grandma
In my opinion, having precognitive dreams and premonitions doesn't necessarily mean that a person is a psychic, neither that the said person is expected to do anything to prevent or stop their dreams from happening.

Personally, I find this topic as puzzling as fascinating. I compare these dreams to an antenna receiving, perhaps, the last thought that a dying person had about the dreamer.

I have had this kind of dreams many times during my life. The ones that shocked me the most were my dreams about the tsunami in Indonesia (2004), and the earthquake in Haiti (2010), several precognitive dreams about family members and friends, and even untrascendental snippets of news that I have later heard/watched in the news.

It's never easy to accept the death of a loved one but, perhaps, the purpose of this kind of dream is to prepare a person for an inevitable event, after all, these dreams hardly provide enough information as to make possible to stop their outcome.

There are some instances where some people have decided not to board a plane/bus/train based upon a premonition, but that didn't stop a tragedy from happening to the rest of the passengers boarding those vehicles. Does this mean that those people are pshychics or that they were not supposed to die that day?
Have you tried taking any pictures by yourself?
If it was that easy for the girls to photograph those anomalies it should be equally simple for anyone else to do it... Or so I hope.

Do you know if the pilot died in the crash too?

I didn't find anything about the history of the building in Wikipedia. 🤔
I can't find any history of the school: (I would like to read it (about the WW2 Headmaster)

Hi, Jubeele. I have my moments of weakness but for the most part I tough it out and wait for it to quiet down. The house that has the most activity right now belonged to my parents, I am hanging on to it because of the memories and will do what I have to do to keep it.

My cat is very lazy and spoiled and will not move if he doesn't want to even when you try to make him. So when he jumps and acts weird I know he's sensing something. Most of the times a few minutes or seconds later I feel and/or hear it too. I have learned to trust his instincts.

I find the Time Slip theory very interesting. I had not thought of that. The noises he heard like someone was moving around outside his bedroom are the typical noises I make every morning when I'm getting ready for work. After that, I call him and he wakes up. It actually makes a lot of sense.

The room that is now my son's has been the center of many unexplained experiences. My son has never complained of anything weird and I have asked him, I want to make sure he doesn't go through what I did when I was younger. I will continue to bless and cleanse that room along with the rest of the house and family. It has been effective, even if whatever haunts it seems to come back.

Thanks a lot for your comments, Jubeele. You're always very supportive and understanding and make me get that warm and fuzzy feeling when I read your comments ❤ ❤

If you and fiancee are getting married in a church you may just want to talk the person marrying you in a nonchalant way and say, oh we're looking forward to our life together, how about blessing the house for us and giving us a fresh start on life? Have him bless the marriage bed too.:)

I think this is pretty intense for your first intro into the paranormal realm. Were there other stuff preceding you may not have noticed?
LuciaJacinta in Elizabeth
I liked all your stories. This is one I like the best. It intrigued me that the death certificate would be in the walls though. How did it get in there? Was it a room that was partially boarded up and perhaps, was an item of that room? I'm just not sure how logically it would be within the walls. Or why? Was someone trying to hide it? Could the death be suspicious and they were hiding something?
LuciaJacinta in My Mother's Doppelganger
Weird. These types of stories are really strange. I have no explanation. I don't know if it's somehow an extension of the person's thoughts and patterns or is it a real entity?
Hello Jubeele,

Thank you for your kind words. I still think about how far away he was, I in USA and he in Lens France, how did he find me. He was my Mother's cousin, making me his second cousin.

To this day, I wonder how he found me, but I believe he thought I was my Mother. Also, my Grandmother met my Grandfather and they were married in Maine, then settled and bought a home in Lowell MA. She named her first daughter Alice, so I believe the sisters were close. How often they may have been back to New Brunswick I can not know.

Ira and I talked about anything and everything, but never about war. When his remains were found, he became filled with a different type of talk, part fear, and very loud. I learned much from my first call from Canada, and informative letters. It was so easy to put two and two together after that. He has not made a peep since last Christmas, and I do not think he will ever again. Finally he will have a proper burial. I dreamed about going to France but in reality my Health will not allow a flight that long.

I have found a closeness with my cousins that was lost, when my Mom passed. We had been down to Christmas cards for many years. We have been phone talking often now. I learned they are kind people, their concern about Ira, just as my own. I have not shared what I shared in this writing, but I would if we can get together. (maybe)

My Best to you Jubeele ❤

Haven, I can get why it's perceived as a gift, but when my Grandma's had these dreams it's too late. She can't do anything that can stop it which is what I find puzzling - what's the point of these premonitions. Your dreams do sound odd, although not that uncommon among 'gifted or cursed' people.
There is one interesting thing I forgot to mention... After looking for the little girl on the porch I found this on the railing

Https://statesymbolsusa.org/symbol-official-item/oklahoma/state-mineral-rock/rose-rock
It's one of those rocks that looks like a rose. It was not there before, I know it wasn't because I had to repair a railing section and would have noticed it. There would have been no way to miss it.

Cuddlebear, the answer of who rescued whom? Is yes. You saved them; they rescue you.
Cuddlebear in Spirit Of Roo
Adove ~
I'm glad you've kept furchildren in your life. We've had many over the years, cats and dogs.

I often look at our three "rescues" and wonder who rescued whom.
Hi there!

When you woke up, was your room dark or was there some kind of light creeping inside? Because the "face" must have been some kind of shadow created by the light creeping in or other else.

It was probably a scary experience for you, I mean I would have screamed when that happened to me.

Thanks for sharing.
Haven, your house is certainly 'active'. I'm glad you've been taking precautions and are staying brave and strong about the whole situation. Chicken that I am, I'd have insisted to Rex-T on moving out at once.

I'd trust your cat's reaction to the recent noises in your bedroom. An animal has better senses and survival instincts than ours about such things. Hopefully, it's not anything to be worried about. Maybe your cat was not afraid in your bedroom because it was the echoes of your own activities?

Not sure if there was anything mimicking your voice and playing tricks on you and your son. You said you had called him a few times but received no answer. Then he said he had heard you calling a number of times just after 3am, responded but you didn't answer him and when he went to check, you weren't there. I was wondering if some kind of Time Slip could have happened. You called your son and he answered - but a few hours earlier... Some people have expressed theories that time might not be as linear as we think.

But that doesn't explain the other disturbances you had in the room when you were younger. I'm sorry to hear you had a hard time of it when you were a teenager. You had every right to feel safe in your own bedroom. Is there anything particular spot in the room that is especially negative to you? When you had the room cleansed and blessed, did you also extend it to your family?

Our prayers and well-wishes go out to you and your family. You know the YGS family will be here to offer whatever help and support that we can. ❤
Hi 2nd1st,

If everything is "between" something, perhaps that could be why such experiences have occurred elsewhere, in addition to stairways and doorways. The idea is interesting.

I'm no expert on OBE but I wonder if I could have had one during a yoga-meditation workshop. One moment I was in the hall and the next I was in a dark place, surrounded by twinkling lights. The thought came to me that I was 'floating in space'. It seemed the most natural thing to do. Then I was back in the hall.

Meditation helps to discipline my mind. I went to a trained instructor who taught me a few techniques. I've had a few odd experiences while in the half-conscious state, between dream and waking. I don't actively 'travel' but I was given the following advice for preparation should I make an attempt: cleansing to ensure a positive experience, request (or prayer) for protection, meditation to free from distractions. Followed by cleansing afterwards to ensure no 'attachments' have hitched a ride. Then again, you could also have a friend or someone you trust to watch over you during your attempt.

Perhaps you could ask others on YGS who have more experience on the matter. I hope this helps. Take care.

Hi LuciaJacinta,

Honestly, I've never read anything by the Warrens, but I'm aware of who they were (Amityville Horror was a very sensational horror flick when I was younger). Regarding the "The Demon of Brownsville Road", I'm not familiar with that story either ~ I'll have to check that out to see if I can draw a conclusion from any of the passages. As far as any poltergeist connection goes, I don't recall anything stressful going on in my life at that time, nor chaotic. I was in my 20's, newly married (happily), and life seemed pretty mellow around our place during that time...

I do have a feeling this might be something that has a tie to natural energy particles; this is just a hunch, more intuitive than factual. The reason why I mention this is because the mini tornado I witnessed had sparks within it that looked a lot like energy. Dust devils create electrical fields because the dust/dirt particles become electrically charged as they rotate and move. I'm not convinced this was a dust devil, but I feel this has a connection to kinetic energy. Although it's rare to find, I wonder if it had anything to do with a type of natural plasma? What doesn't make sense though, is the fact I witnessed this thing in two different locations...
Thank you for your thought provoking comment 😉
Hi ms_st0308,

It's fascinating that your experiences have also taken place in doorways or on stairways. I've seen shadows on both. Recently, I've seen the fleeting shadow of a woman sitting on the edge of the bed. As Manafon has pointed out, there are accounts of apparitions being seen in many other places.

But the idea of doors and stairs being points of transition to exit, enter and move between realms resonates with me. Perhaps they are places more accessible under certain circumstances, like cracks between worlds or wrinkles in time?

Thanks for coming by and joining in the discussion.
Jan,
Your account moved me to tears. I thought of the poem, 'Dulce et Decorum est', written by Wilfred Owen from WWI, on the "age-old lie".
"Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori" - Horace (translation: "Sweet and fitting it is to die for the fatherland").

I think the family tie and your gift, especially pure and unfettered in the very young, formed that connection between you and your Canadian friend. Perhaps your positive energy shone like a beacon and provided some solace to him. You were family, home and comfort.

In the intervening years, the distraction of work, family commitments and other daily concerns can cause us to ignore little signs and subtle messages. I wonder if during your sickness, your consciousness travelled close to the Veil, then "his voice became clear, easier to understand". It could be that his messages culminated in that call from Canada, confirming his details and identity. A reaching out from the past to find the present. I had goosebumps!

"The bell is quiet, as is my Canadian friend." Maybe he is now at peace. He's remembered and continues to remain in the hearts and memories of family.

Thank you for the privilege of sharing in this extraordinary experience and family history.❤
Biblio,
Thank you for making me welcome and for passing on Rook's recipe. Let him know I appreciate it. I'm open to it. I'll definitely try that, as well as the incense. To answer a couple of your questions, my Fiancé is more of the religious one than I am. I did tell her about it in detail, and she literally stopped me and asked me not to say anymore to her about it. She was upset about it. I"m pretty sure she's heard the girl before, but didn't tell me.
I think you nailed it about my personality, I don"t usually open up well about the paranormal. I'm learning though.
My sister suggested and sent me the sage. I think you"re right about there being more than one ghost / entity. I've heard the little girl before, walking around my wrap around porch and a giggle when I go look, almost like she's playing tag or hide and seek.
It's been quiet for about a week now, (No bed shaking) but I do still hear something moving around the kitchen when I'm in the bedroom. I don't mind her or them. I absolutely minded whatever woke me up that night. It made me very angry, and brought out a lot of aggression, which I'm told is not good energy, and may contribute to the problem.
Thank you sincerely for the way you explained the worse case, and fall back concepts. I can wrap my head around what you meant. Like I mentioned, I'm learning. Any other ideas or advice is appreciated.
Hope this finds you safe, happy, warm and fed.

Hi cuddlebear

Thanks for your words of confort. I did adopt a cat after about two years. Thundercloud was with us for 22 years. Beautiful cat, lovely soul. Now I have a nine and ten year old, a handful but I can't see my life without them.
Hi there!

Great story in a theater!

My name is Erick Yáñez, I'm a reporter from Mexico City. I work for a podcast produced by the WNYC (New York's Public Radio) called Spooked, which is also a spinoff from the award winning show 'Snap Judgement'. It's a show about paranormal experiences in the voices of the people who lived them. This is the link of the show:
Https://spookedpodcast.org

I'm wondering; would you be interested to chat with me via skype, hangouts or phone so I can get to know the details of the story and evaluate if it's a good fit for our third season?

I'm leaving Spooked's webpage here so you can check it out.

Thanks in advance!

Hi RCRuskin,

Thank you for what you said and I agree with you. He was very special and will always be family to me.
There are way too many onions being chopped here!

May your father's Memory be Eternal.

And it would be interesting to track down the driver of that car and found out if they witnessed anything. Oh well.
RCRuskin in Spirit Of Roo
I don't "get it" when people say something like 'just get a new <type of pet>.' Roo may not have been the same species as you, pretty sure he's not anyway... 😁 Pets are not 'like' family, they are family. These animal companions share the hopes and dumps of our daily lives for a decade or more... May as well say, when your brother dies, 'Just have your parents give you a little brother'. Oy!

OK, rant over.

Will our pets be with us in Heaven/the Kingdom of God? Archbishop Michael, of the diocese wherein I attend church was once asked. He answered it at a retreat given in my parish. Yes, undoubtedly. Animals may not have souls as humans do, but we believe, at least Archbishop Michael and I believe, that God will raise up all of creation in His new kingdom. They won't be 'saved' as we might be, but they will still be with us.

"And that is a very comforting thought." Gandalf, Lord of the Rings.
I am sorry for your loss of your Dad. It's hard to lose a parent even when you didn't feel close... But I do think he knew your need and came to comfort you during this time. He does love you and care about you. I believe you will in time be reunited and will see your dad again. I hope you are doing well and able to feel better about your studies. Take care. ❤
Cuddlebear in Spirit Of Roo
Adove ~ a very nice experience. My wife believes we have been visited by cat of ours several times. I know how comforting that can be.

That said I hope you find it in your heart to rescue another cat, Roo won't be jealous, and you would have another friend.
Hi, Filmbuff.

I believe your grandma, there are some people that have this ability. I believe it to be both a gift and a curse. I wouldn't want to know when my friends and family are going to die. I myself have had weird dreams that do not make sense to me until after something happens then I start remembering dreams and feelings I've had that are related to things that have happened. A few weeks ago I had a dream that my uncle came to visit me, in my dream we spoke of random things, I don't even remember what. I had that dream two nights in a row, I didn't think anything of it. On June 19th (a couple of days after my last dream) my cousin called me to tell me that my uncle had passed away suddenly. I have not told any family member about this, I really don't remember there being any kind of message. To me it was just a random dream, I had not seen my uncle in a while, I didn't even know he was ill. This has me just a little freaked out but I don't think I could handle having a dream where I know someone is going to die. That is just too scary, I don't know how psychics handle knowing these things.
Bibliothecarius in Shook From My Bed
Greetings, Rhino, and welcome to YGS.

By your introduction, you are basically the definition of the colloquial noun "a hardcase." I think that you take pride in this, and rightfully so; it is the combination of traits and experiences that have made you into an effective & successful adult.

While these traits are admirable, they usually prevent "type 'A' personalities" from opening up about the paranormal. I certainly hope that it was cathartic for you to share your narrative with us. It's not always easy to be a grown man who has to admit to chasing ghost phenomena through his own home.

First point: Congratulations on getting the house saged first. It would appear that you've done some background research on dealing with the phenomena, and sage is a fantastic starting point.

Second: Did you discuss this with your fiancée at all? If the activity unnerved you, it may alarm her, also. (If so, did she suggest the sage? If not, *lead* with the fact you've had the house saged "to clear the air" in your new home).

Third: If you are a religious man, you may want to have a local minister from your faith -or your fiancée's faith- do a blessing of the house. If you are not a religious man, I'm attaching to the bottom of my reply a 3-day cleansing ritual by one of our stalwart members, Rook. The advantage to this is that Rook *is* a minister who created this ritual so it can is compatible with religious and non-religious beliefs. Summer is an ideal time to do this, as it does require opening the windows; as you are 7 miles from town, I can well imagine that your home won't have any immediate neighbors who will think the new guy in town is unhinged.

Fourth: It is possible that your home has different *types* of spirit in it; the child-like presences may be one or more deceased children's spirits who have lingered in their home. The entity that moved you, your mattress, and your box-spring was NOT a child's spirit. That takes serious force and aggression to accomplish; it's not a cute trick like making a salt cellar slide along the dining table, it's a display of hostility. Rook's cleansing, depending upon your comfort level, can leave innocent spirits -like the children- alone if you're ok with their staying around. The dangerous one *must* be driven out. The dangerous one *may* have disguised itself as a child the first time to see how you react; it may be a powerful entity that has *bullied* the children-spirits to do what it wants; it may be that the child-spirits regularly hide from the powerful one in order to be left alone (presuming they are really child spirits, they would be just as scared of the powerful entity now as they would have been while alive because they're still children).

Fifth: For peace of mind, you may wish to extend prayers, blessings, etc. To the boundaries of your property lines; getting a powerful entity out of the house may accomplish -only- that. Admittedly, this is a "worst case scenario" phenomenon, but given that you've seen active duty in the Army and worked SWAT, I think you're a guy who needs to hear the worst possible outcome in order to have fallback positions and to verify that the dangerous element in this situation has been dealt with **permanently.**

Thanks for sharing your experience with us, and good luck with your future plans for a happy marriage and a quiet home in the countryside. As a resident alien & the spouse of an American, I'm sitting in the kitchen of my 150-year-old American Dream, on a quarter acre of Connecticut, and I fully believe that you, sir, have earned peace of mind in your American Dream, too.

Best,
Biblio.

******Rook's Cleansing Method******

Rook's Cleansing and Shielding Method (as used by myself and many other members of this site)...

Recipe for a Home Cleansing/Shielding... (allow for two or 3 days to complete)

Day one: Open all curtains window and doors with screens installed, let fresh air and sunshine into the home. Have all closets, cabinets and other 'dark spaces' open so that as much natural light as possible can enter those spaces. After 2-3 hours take a broom and 'sweep' out each room (this is symbolic and you do not have to really sweep) focus your thoughts on sweeping (pushing) out all negative energies / entities /thoughts. Close home up after completing each room of your home... Please do not forget your garage if you have one. (Optional) Light incense (sandalwood or Dragons-blood works well for me) and let aroma fill the home, and/or play a tape that contains your favorite Church/Positive, Upbeat (songs that give you good thoughts) songs before you begin sweeping.

Day two (or three): Once again open all curtains, windows and doors. Take a White candle (Optional) to the center most point of the home, sit on the floor and place candle in front of you. Light the candle (visualize a white ball of light) and then focus on the flame... Visualize the flame (white light) filled with positive thoughts, energy. (Say a prayer at this time if you so desire... Ask for cleansing positive energy to fill the candles flame/white light). Hold this 'image' in your mind and then visualize the flame (light) slowly expanding outward, visualize it filling the room your in, every corner and 'dark space'. Continue to visualize it expanding...it's outer edges pushing away (burning away) any and all negative energies/entities out and away from each room in your home. Once you have visualized this flame (light) filling your entire home, picture it expanding to your property lines. Hold this image in your mind for a few moments then visualize 'anchoring' this flame (light) where you are sitting which is the center most point of your home. Once you have done this. Take a deep breath, relax a few moments and then blow out the candle. (If you didn't use a candle just let yourself relax a moment or two.) "

Now you can create a shield for yourself using the 'home shield' technique but instead of focusing on your home visualize the 'flame' simply surrounding you instead of your home... Best time to do this is after a nice shower using a rosemary scented soap (rosemary is good for purification and protection.)

It's possible. I asked others if they felt cold. And they said: "Cold? It's 80 degrees in here. We're sweating bullets."

The latch not catching is another possibility. Like I said, I wouldn't rule out any logical explanations.

Ohhhh...got it! 😜
It looks like I've stepped on the 3 amigos toes and I'm seeing red. ROFLMAO 😁 😁
Ohh, loved this tale. I loved that your cats came to protect you from Frankenstein. I had cats that comforted me when I had experiences with paranormal too. I also remember very far back too to at least 18 months as well. Not everything but there are a few things that stand out as real memories.

Funny also, another spirit that I had visits from early on I called "Dracula"...lol. I don't know why. I guess Dracula was something I knew of and represented all things scary. I think Frankenstein and Dracula must have been friends.
LuciaJacinta in Hug From A Spirit
Probably something that originated at the hospital. This spirit doesn't really belong following you home though. It's place is in the afterlife. Probably best to tell it Thank you for your company but it's time to go with their family and loved ones waiting for them on the other side.
LuciaJacinta in Mini-tornado
I think I've heard stories like this. Try reading stories from people like The Warrens. I swear I read a story like this in one of their books. Also, I swear I read something like this as well in "The Demon of Brownsville Road". I guess these things could be paranormal. Or maybe associated in some way. Concerning these things, I think there may be a scientific explanation though somehow associated with your own energy along the lines of how poltergeist can be explained. Were you going through any traumatic periods in your life? Were things seeming chaotic? Do you have a lot of bottled up emotions? I'm just wondering. I feel there must be a plausible explanation.
I'm not sure what you saw, but the navy WWII working uniform was a denim coloured shirt with dark blue slacks and the dixie up cover (hat). Fatigues are a more modern uniform for the Navy and the Coast Guard. The Army Fatigues are green or camouflage in a variety colours. Navy Camo is blue based.
TommySnow59 in A Very Rude Awakening
Hello, everyone. I haven't been on this site in a long time, but a few people had asked me to update them if I ever went back to the motel that I had this experience in. I drove past the old place yesterday, and it looks like it burned to the ground at least a couple of years ago. The main office was a detached building away from the other two wings of the motel, and it is still standing, and looked like someone might be living in it, but there was nobody around when I stopped by. The wing of the motel I had stayed in was completely leveled, and the other wing is still standing but looked like it had significant fire damage and appeared to be totally vacant and uninhabitable. I guess the story ends here; I was kind of hoping to try to rent that same room again, but was also a little bit relieved when I came around the bend of the highway and saw the building was gone. Life is funny sometimes...
Thanks for your comments guys. 2nd1st that does sound like it may be the same building. The Department did move into the building in December 2017 so I probably overlapped with you there at some point. Big building though 13 floors. LOL 13 floors that suddenly sounds ominous to me. I'm on floor 7, where were you?

Ladyglow I hope its just trying to get attention and nothing worse. I wonder if the dog is a pet? There was a girl in my team that had a black dog and it did die last year. But the dog had never been to the building that I know of and the girl left before we heard anything about dog sightings so I'm not sure if that could be it.

Biblio you talk about it being an urgent thing needing to get lots of people attention quickly. I guess that makes sense since everything seems to have happened really quickly and very subtle
LightMight in Elizabeth
Hello Katiebug,
It sounds as though Elizabeth had made a connection with you via the music box, during your childhood ~ which seems innocent enough. Perhaps she was just looking for an understanding soul, like you, to feel comfortable with during her transition before she moved on from her old home.
I really enjoyed your story, LightMight 😉
