Hi 00786

Perhaps it was a resident spirit/s, if you know about the history of the place it would shed some light on what you'll experienced.
Hi wayseeker89

Did you ask any of the caretakers what or who that could have been, I'm sure they would know some of the places history.

Thanks for your read and your insights! I did read the story you mentioned in your comment and there were some similarities, for sure! I don't know if me and my brother are particularly skilled at picking up energies, but the neighborhood did feel "off" for lack of a better description. That Saturday was hot, humid and sunny with not a cloud in the sky - there was a park down the street that was full of people enjoying the day, but it was silent. As if no one was there. Or maybe it was muted. There weren't too many people out and about on the sidewalks, but I always find that the case in these older neighborhoods.
You mention researching the area - what I will say is that these lands were taken from different tribes of the First Nations people, there is a known burial ground a few blocks south of the general location. I wouldn't be surprised if this has some affect on the land that these homes were built on.
Hi Clfrd, thanks for sharing this amazing story. I really enjoyed it 😊 I've also come accross some spirit that mean no harm and are friendly. Did you look up for the history of the cottage like who lived there before you? Waiting for more stories from your side ❤
Hi MargieKay!

Thanks for sharing your experience! My mom had a similar experience when she was about that age, but saw multiple faces on the door.

What did your dad say once you confirmed it was your grandfather?

Additionally, would you be willing to let me share your story on my YouTube channel? Anonomously, of course:)
Cool story! I too, have had an experience seeing a typical devil like that when I was with a childhood friend, somewhere around your age. What I saw on the Rez, was a child-sized Devil riding a bike down the street. As soon as my friend and I saw it, we ran off, scared, right into my house and told my Mom about it.
Now that I'm older and more Scientifically-Minded, I think that experience was most likely the result of an overactive imagination and the Devil was actually a kid in a Halloween costume.
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in The Spirits Of Station Cottage
Hello Clfrd, great story. It was refreshing to read a story about a family having an experience in the home with more loving & positive energy.

There are many homes full of negative energy that cause people to fight and even leads to violence and divorce, a direct influence of the potent darkness that lies within. The entities in those homes seem to thrive and live on the chaos and disorder and fear they induce.

Your home seems to be the proverbial opposite. The more positive energy also influences personality changes, but for the better, more loving and it seems as in your case, healing and soothing as well. Perhaps the entities/spirits in your home also thrive on the positive and loving energy and this would explain why the female presence doesn't like the fighting and discord. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

This home as you describe it sounds like it's really good for you. It may provide a healing dynamic for you and your family, a rare opportunity. I would spend as much time as possible here for the time being.

My feeling is that you are spot on with your identification of the various spirits/entities at this location. It may be a chance for you to get in touch with your gifts again as well. My general feeling is that just as a place full of negative energy can draw in more negativity and darker spirits, a positive place full of love and light can also draw in more positive entities and emotions. Perhaps that's how you got drawn there.

I believe you have an incredible opportunity here, pursue it. Feel free to update us if you find out anything more about the spirits that reside in your home. Possibly former station masters, and others how came through the railroad over the years and liked the feel of the place. Good Luck, and thanks for sharing!
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Airbnb Scare
Hello MsRevz80, great story, it does leave me with a curiosity for sure about the place.

More importantly, like others have noted, it's the general neighborhood, the unusual quiet, the unkept lawns, there's an energy about the area itself.

Your cousins girlfriend noted the surrounding homes, did you or your brother pick up on anything at all in the area besides what you experienced in the home itself?

Someone had just posted another story on here about her stay in her fiance's home, a very negatively charged place that also had an overgrown lawn, it seems to go with the territory with haunted homes. Animals typically avoid just highly charged atmosphere's, and plants seem to react in a strange fashion as well.

By all means research the house, but the answers may lie more in the general area itself which seems to be affecting several homes from the sounds of it, that's my feeling on it. Whatever energies are abound in that area, may have also influenced events in those homes, murders, etc, just as it caused your cousin and his girlfriend to fight. Such energy seems to feed off those kinds of negativity and from reading many other stories can actually change a persons personality over time and not for the good.

It may be worth a look, if you're up for it, to drive through the area and see what you pick up on energy wise, just be sure to take precautions and for sure update us on what you find, as it is a compelling mystery! Good Luck!
Wow! All I can think is where do I get my very own Incubus? I have heard a lot of stories about how being with one can steal your soul but that just sounds like a relationship. And it has been going on for 5 years? That is actually impressive.
Oh my... There sure are lots of "heads" going on in the story.

Most encounters that I hear of a spirit of a once living person have had no such a clear face feature! Very interesting.

Is there history background of your home with your grandfather?
MsRevz80 in Airbnb Scare
[at] Rajine - there were other people around although the area seemed a bit muted, for lack of a better word. It was soooo quiet even though there was a pretty active park down the street. I saw an old man on more than one occasion walking by and looking curiously into the home. I chalk it up to neighbors looking at the "new people" in their area. I never really thought about overgrown lawns as creepy until my cousins girlfriend mentioned it. For the past week though, whenever I come across such a yard it does make the home and its occupants seem a little foreboding. It could also be that these homes have more or less been occupied by the same owners for 60-100 years. Maybe they got old and can't mow the lawn, maybe they put it up for sale and moved away and can not maintain it. There are many stories locked up in these homes and neighborhoods that I'm sure we will never know.
Hi Margiekay

I suppose that your grandfather was just trying to say HI. I would like to read about your other experiences as well.
Hi Clfrd

It's finally good to read a incident that does not have a malevolent or scary ghost or demon in it, in a world full of such incidents yours gives me hope that it's not all that bad and that there's also good out there that's guiding and protecting us.
Hi nav_27

I'm assuming you follow Hinduism, like me, here in South Africa among the community of people who have Indian ancestry we also believe that carrying non veg (meat, cooked or uncooked) especially at night attracts spirits, usually if we have to carry it at night we put green or dry chillies, or even a few burnt matchsticks on top of the container the non veg stuff is in. I believe in it since apart from hearing about lots incidents from my parents and other family members, I've also had my own experience with my brother coming late from a friend's house one night with fish they caught.

Perhaps whatever is haunting that hotel was attracted to the meat your husband and his friends had.
Rajine in Airbnb Scare
Hi MsRevz80

This incident kept me glued to my cell phone screen, you mentioned that area your family had stayed seemed very quiet, did they or you not see any other residents about whilst you'll were there? They could have shed some light on what or why that house has a creepy vibe.

What I find absolutely creepy is that your cousins girlfriend mentioned that the other houses around there have unkempt lawns and overgrown grass, sort of like it's a ghost village and that they could have possibly been the only ones there.
lady-glow in A Levitating Lady
Welcome to YGS.

I'm inclined to think that the ghost's presence is more likely linked to the history of the house/hotel than to the guys having nonveg food. I would like to know more about this theory, though.

Scary encounter, at least X wasn't alone and there're more witnesses to confirm that what he saw was really there.

Reading your story made me crave for biryani!

Thanks for sharing.
Welcome to YGS.

Margiekay, this is a scary and fascinating encounter.

Did your grandfather use to live in this house during his life? Do you know if your father ever experienced seen his father's apparition?

I'm glad your father didn't doubt what his daughters saw, and helped you to ID this misty gentleman. I guess he just wanted to say hi to his grandkids.

I'm eager to read more of your experiences.

Thanks for sharing.
MsRevz80 in Airbnb Scare
[at] Linjahaha - researching the address and more broadly the general area, is something I'm planning to get to in the next few weeks. Hoping to find something specific to the home so fingers crossed! I appreciate you stating that we may all me sensitive to these things in our own ways - I certainly felt like we were independently confirming that the house was strange, for a lack of a better word.

[at] Limey - Thanks for appreciating the story! I know it's not the most eventful as some but our experiences were truly unsettling. I will be doing a deep dive into the history of the home and the general area in the next few weeks. I don't want to disclose the street name as airbnbs in this area are so hard to find and this was one of probably two homes that were available. Also as I didn't rent it out, I wouldn't feel right putting it out into a public space as much as I believe it would help. Good call on asking neighbours - they are mostly older people in the neighborhood and have likely being living there for their entire lives. Someone should know something. My cousin is planning to talk to the Airbnb owner before posting a review to see if he can get any more info. I'm hopeful that we will be able to find out generally what the deal is / was with that particular home.
Limey in Airbnb Scare
Hi MsRevz; a very interesting story, and a refreshing change from so many posts that I see on this site. If I were in your position, the only thing I would want to know is what happened in that house. If you have the time and energy, I think it would be worth the effort to find out. The neighbours for one thing, but a more fruitful pursuit might be newspaper archives.
I have lived in Toronto for a number of years in the past, but not in the Scarborough area. I think it would be useful for readers to know the name of the street and which side of the street the house is on. No privacy would be compromised by sharing this information. Also the Airbnb owners may be ok with sharing any background info that they may have about the house. They could possibly have owned it for most of its life. Worth asking. After all, the house can't be much more than 75 years old. There may even be somebody on the street that knows all about it. I just hate loose ends.
Linjahaha in Airbnb Scare
I, personally, do believe that what you, & the others felt was genuine. You 'may' all be sensitive to one degree, or another.
I give you credit for trying to research the house, & the general area. However, whatever is there 'may' have happened an extremely long time ago. Like you pointed out, though, that area was active during the war.
Possibly the Hall of Records, or the Public Library could be useful in assisting you. Just an idea!

Good Luck!
Meaghen, I completely understand, & symphathize with 'this' particular account of yours to the max.
My late hubby, John, & I lived in a terribly haunted house for almost 4 years. It very nearly broke us up for how it so negatively affected the both of us. Seriously!
The feelings we had were overwhelming, & the paranormal activity rose to a fever pitch when "I" moved in. He was rather psychic, as was I, & his mother was, definitely 'very' psychic. She read tea leaves, & never did it for profit. However, the information she gleaned from those leaves was astounding.
She was the one who learned from the leaves how very haunted the house actually was. However, the mystery as to whom, or what was haunting the house managed to evade her. She was able to tell us, with a marked degree of accuracy, approximately when we'd be able to move out. We were stuck for almost 4 years due to finances. That place affected almost every aspect of our lives. So, I don't doubt that it was adversely affecting you boyfriend in the same fashion.
I assure you that something like that 'can', & 'does' affect the living in a negative, & sometimes, counter productive way.
It just 'might' behoove you to look into the history of the general area in the region. You just may be surprised what you learn that may enlighten you as to what went on in the house, or on the property.
I tend to agree with 'Lost Voyage' that it may well be the land itself that is haunted. If you get the chance, just look into it, & if you learn something interesting, or unusual, please share it with us! Good Luck 😜 😜
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in The House In Pennsylvania
Hello Meaghan, fascinating encounter, thanks for sharing!

It is interesting how people are able to live in haunted places, some adapt to it, I think it becomes sort of a coping mechanism. I remember once when my brother remarked to my cousin about seeing a ghost, my cousin took a look and then merely shrugged and said "That happens all the time", as if it was an normal everyday thing to watch a ghost move through your house! In some ways in may be similar to how people adapt to traumatic situations in order to cope/survive, especially if there's nothing they can do about (my cousins at the time were kids)

However in this particular case, I don't think Tim was immune to the feelings the house gave off, I think it matched his vibration so to speak and so he took no particular note of it. I mean if you were in a house of negative people, all the time, it would rub off on a person and after a time it would become 'normal' for lack of a better word.

From your description and that of your parents, the house gave off too strong a vibe to be ignored by anyone. The wild look to the place, the overgrown appearance would be proof enough, that something was off.

I know you mentioned Tim was not a nice person and I'm curious since the relationship broke off after this visit, without getting too personal, may I ask what his personality was like when he was not at home, when you first met him?

I would venture a guess, though I may be wrong that when Tim first moved in, he probably did feel off, saw things, experienced things, definitely felt things, but merely wrote them off as imagination, tried to rationalize them away. As time went on the house's negative vibe began to be absorbed by him and influenced his behavior and personality. It happens alot, there are scores of stories on this very site of people being literally transformed by living in such a place, and couple's who were blissfully happy when they moved in ending things in a bitter divorce. I'm not stating this as fact, as you were there, I wasn't but it is a feeling I have.

Someone mentioned it could have been Tim's negative vibe that drew in the energy, but I would reverse that and say it's the other way around, the house definitely affected him. He would do well to get away from there. From what you describe it's the area, not the person that reeks of negative energy.

There were many areas in Pennsylvania, that were the site of Civil War battles, you may not have the exact address, but if you know the township/general area, you could research that, it wouldn't take long and may yield some answers for you. Many people have described similar feelings to what you experienced on these old battlefields where many lost their lives. Good Luck!
That is strange. There must be an unhappy spirit who is lingering there for whatever reason. Often times it seems to be an unexpected or tragic type of death that causes that type of presence.
I'm sorry I forgot to check the comments. I was raised Christian. The man looked like a white man in pale blue scrubs. I guess I should've been more specific. I thought maybe he was a staff member there until he disappeared into the wall.
Hi Blosomes,
Yes! I think so too. I used to work for the city not a private company so we were told to stick to the script so to speak. The reason is wealthier people don't want their homes being spoken poorly about and the city was concerned they might be sued. I have noticed that on most of my walks pubs LOVE to be talked about. I guess because we always stop by for a drink afterwards! 😉 Thank you for reading!
Hi Rajine,
No, because of the nature of the encounter (woman crying) I was concerned they might call the police and I might be involved in something else. When I am travelling, I usually try and stay under the radar even though I don't ever break the law. I have a feeling that hotel staff are well aware of the ghosts in this place! Thank you for reading! 😁
Hello Rajine. I completely agree. It is amazing how some people are completely cut off from those "intuitive senses". I'm a little envious of those people, honestly. I do know that I will never stay in a place that gives off the vibes that house had ever again.
Hypnapompic hallucinations, sleep paralysis and suggestibility. Highly credulous!
Hi Meaghan

It's kind of crazy how certain people can live in a spooky place and be blissfully unaware it, I don't think I'd have been able to stay there even for a night.
Ps...

The tree in your story reminded me of something I experienced in my younger days, our neighbor had a native fruit tree in his yard and for some reason that particular tree would always move violently like someone was in there shaking the branches, but no one was there, dogs would look at it and howl, this used to happen every single night even on still nights the tree branches and leaves would move about. Eventually my neighbor cut the tree down because apparently a priest refused to enter his yard after seeing that tree, the priest told him that there's something bad on it.
Hi ZSneider

I'm sure that it's not only terrifying but bothersome to move from a place you call home, a home supposed to be a place of comfort, safety, relaxation and safe haven for you and your family.

Didn't you'll try cutting down the tree? Since you mentioned that the tree was a reason for all the crazy stuff everyone experienced?
Hi Meghna, how about bluetooth speakers plus crazy lady combination? Btw let's do ghost hunting together!
Well, I guess Meaghan, many deaths in the house may have prompted a negative atmosphere, also if the guy was an unpleasant person that also attract a lot of negativity which could trigger these unpleasant souls. Thankfully you are not hurt or attracted to anything negative.
Aslipablo I never did say anything to him. He wasn't the nicest person and I didn't want to be judged or made to feel stupid so I left it alone. I do know that the house used to be owned by his grandmother who had passed, and the house was given to her children. I'm not sure how long the house had been in their family though.
yes, searching the history of the house could tell a lot about what was going on there. Also, does Tim own that house or rent it, and did you say anything about this to him? Because he might be aware of things you noticed.
00786 in Clap?!
Rajine and blosomes: thank you so much for reading and commenting ❤ maybe it was him... It gives a great pleasure thinking that he still cares for me and remembers me like I do. No matter how much I grow up the spent with him will always be the best memory of my life 😊
P.S: so sorry for late reply
Good tip for anklet-hearing, ghost-fearing folks. Wonder why your grandfather doesn't believe in ghosts after supposedly seeing one. I guess I should check the comments on that story and ask there.
TheFinalGhostHunter, you're new, so I'm cutting you a bit of slack. Of your 6 comments, five were insulting. That is against the Comment Guidelines. We expect a level of maturity. You are not displaying that. You'll find most of your comments have been deleted. It seems you are intent on stirring the pot, and that will not stand. Play nice or go elsewhere.

TheFinalGhostHunter in A Paranormal Encounter
Hi Mimi,

Although from your own experience of seeing a lady in the garden doesn't seem to mean it was a ghost but all your other renarks in the comments seem to indicate something preternatural. I want to talk to you about this. I don't see any option to message a user. Insta?
Hi Paranormalgal25, thanks for confirming the authenticity of the paranormal activities on the railway tracks between Mulund and Bhandup. It is very encouraging when people like you who also live in same area back up such experiences. 😊

Raijine, we never saw that woman again. I think she was assigned to a new place. She was staying there because of work.

No no, please take your time.
I need to apologize for mis-spelling your name too.

I will be visiting Okinawa someday! It such a beautiful place!

Jubeele - here's the story about Dalton and Buzz. I hope you enjoy it, if you haven't already read it. ❤ I wish I'd given it a better title, but...
Rajine,

Apologies for the slow response. I couldn't say for sure either since it had apparently come about while I was "suppressed" as my friend put it. Whatever it was, it wasn't friendly in the least and would've likely caused harm. That was why the man had held me down as he had, from what she'd told me. I'd assume the shadows moving as they'd had was an after effect of it rather than the woman herself. All I know was while I was held down, I couldn't speak or move, let alone even open my eyes.
Blosomes,
Apologies for the slow response. I would recommend a trip to Okinawa not only for the spiritual occurrences but, for the island itself as well. I used to here plenty of stories of the supernatural while I was there across the island and the bases on them. Either local legend or word of mouth from othersrrvice members. It's definitely worth the visit, lucky I got to live there for a time.
Senhora valkricry
Hmm... Now that make sense 😟
A little sad hearing about your experience of "forgotten things"
My father would do the opposite, he threw away almost everything related to my grandmother when she left the world... Well, I made lot of memories with her so it is OK for me but when we want to tell her stories to my sister all we can do is talk our memories... I know, a little different but I just wanted to share my story too.

Ryujin (Roy E. Lynx)
People leave various things behind for an array of reasons. Once I was hired to clean a house to be put on the market once the renters had left - seems to me they left EVERYTHING. I sat on the floor and cried, because we're talking photo albums, very personal family things, as well as toys etc. Near as I could make out, they only took their clothes and a few essentials. And folks just don't forget those things. Turned out, they had lost a small child and just couldn't bare any reminders.
Perhaps this is true of the wardrobe. Perhaps it became a painful reminder of her grandparents and was stored 'for now'.
Thank you all for your comments. I believe the explanations for this experience make a lot of sense as I did not have this happen previously before the accident. I'm sure my grief attracted something negative. Thankfully it hasn't been seen since.

My grief is starting to subside and I feel like I'm returning back to "the land of the living,' if that makes sense. It's still hard but I've had some pretty cool things happen as well that when I'm ready I will post about.

Again, thank you!

Bibliothecarius
Hey! How is things?
Well, we communicated by email because I don't think they speak English at all...
He seemed calm? By just reading his messages... But maybe he is not? I don't know... All his emails were very Googlely... Always will take sometime to translate them back to Japanese than to Portuguese... I mean that is how I figure out to understand his email messages 🙄

The "closet" is not too big but I can tell that it's made of good hard woods, similar to some Chinese antique furnitures and I know it's rare in Japan have such materials as an antique, and yes I was wondering the same thing as you are but tired of asking them again because it really takes time to understand them... 🙄

I will be asking them for more information if anything else odd would happen after the closet is gone...

Oh by the way, I got some white sage already. You know, it's the Obon week this week where it is said that the spirits of the dead will be lurking around, so I might just do the smudging like on Monday, right after the closet is gone just to be safe.

Thanks and I will be updating or will be writing another story if anything else happens.

Ryujin (Roy E. Lynx)
Bibliothecarius in The Old Creepy Closet
Greetings, Ryujin, and welcome back.

It strikes me as odd that someone who is moving out of a house in the country would forget to take a wardrobe/closet with them, especially when the article of furniture was both an antique and a wedding gift.

While I have forgotten items in previous houses when I have moved (21 times, roughly), they tended to be small items like night-lights. Larger items of furniture that we did not want--or had no space to keep--were given to family, friends, or charity shops. When I moved into my house, the previous owner left me his lawnmower because he was moving into an apartment, but he first *asked* me if I wanted it.

How did the previous owners react when you asked them about the closet? Were they relieved, happy, anxious, concerned, etc.? Their reaction may indicate part of their reasoning in having left it behind in the first place.

Though Japanese homes are traditionally not cluttered with excessive furniture, it does seem odd to me that a valuable antique (which should have a place of distinction in the home to show gratitude to the grandparents who gave it as a gift) would be stuffed into the attic space.

I fully believe the events of your story, but the behavior of the previous owners does not add up.

If the movers fail to retrieve the closet, you may wish to consider having it blessed or performing a smudging ceremony to help whatever is attached to it to move on.

Best,
Biblio.
Hi Skadus

Seems like you have a lot of spiritual activity around you, I wonder what it was that was guided by the woman into your room though.
Hi ZSneider

I can imagine how hard it must be to lose a loved one especially in that way, have you'll ever seen that lady again after the wake?
Skadas
Wow sir! Yes! Those places too!
There are so many "maybes" when you encounter things in Okinawa 😳

I hope I can visit there someday.

Ryujin
Senhora valkricry
People here really will not use English, that is why I am forgetting some of the vocabs (excuses excuses excuses) lol

I just had permission to send that back to the pre-owner. I guess they just had forgotten about it... (really!?)

The delivery guys will be here... I think they said Monday? After the Obon period.

Hopefully whatever that is attached to the "closet" (or the wardrobe) will just move on. 🙄

Ryujin (Roy E.Lynx)
Blosomes,

I certainly appreciate the information you have given. I could think of two other specific sites that I know of on base that something about them. The first of which was a more public area where a hill led up to a pair of room sized caves. These were said to be where many local wartime nurses had gone to hide during the invasion and took their own lives to avoid capture. They allow the locals on the base specifically to visit the site about once a year.

A friend of mine wanted to do our own visits to this site and one other. As we approached it, I felt like I shouldn't go any further whereas he pressed onward to the gates barring entry inside. I remember him talking about a hat someone had left just before a shadow peeked out. It stood slightly taller than him and seemed to be more curious than harmful. I told him about it and he very quickly ran back to me.

The second, I can't exactly disclose where it was. When we visited that site, we didn't get far into the area. About the same time, we both felt breathless taking deep ineffective breaths. I knew something was off considering he was in far better shape than I, so he shouldn't get as tired as I would so fast. We spoke about the sudden onset and decided it best to turn back.

You might be on to something for sure however. I've done some reading based on your suggestion but, will likely have to dig deeper yet. Unfortunately, I do know how many governments feel about older/ancient holy sites. Always a terrible shame when they disturb such places.
blosomes,
My own feeling is the pre-owner's wife maybe thrilled to have her grandparent's closet back. (FYI - the 'closet' you're describing we westerners call a wardrobe, usually.)
[at] So my guess is... Do whatever that is needed.

I meant my thought is...

Sorry my smart phone is being dumb.
A little more information on the closet.

I contacted the pre-owner of the house, he said that the closet is actually from his wife's grandparents for a wedding gift almost 30 years ago. It is an antique and it was owned by an upper class man who worked for the railway system during the time.

And some more additional researches by myself, any antique during those period in Japan will be resold after the owner's death.

So my guess is I want to send the closet back to the pre-owner of the house and let him do whatever that is needed.

Do you think is worthy doing that? 🤔

Wow! Interesting 😳
I kind of like it because different culture have different customs, many are very beautiful in my opinion.
Like in this story, the ceremony itself really can give time to the dead ones to communicate with the living ones...

Thank you!

Ryujin
Skadus
Hmm... Interesting!
I've done my research too.

Have you heard of Yuta in Okinawa?
Some modern monuments or historical ones, maybe be on a training site of Yuta, which is known to be sacred, now very haunted spots with angry spirits.

Well, incase you don't know what Yuta is, they are some kind of media and shaman mixed but normal women. They will be trained in sacred places called Utaki, which can be as simple as a small bush to a mountainous site as a child.

During the war, the Japanese government had to modernize the place and had taken lots of those Utakis and had built buildings and monuments on them.

The information is from one of my friend whose grandmother is known to be a local Yuta. You how political people is not into "sacred places" during those days 😕 I kind of believe in that.

Hope it helps you

Ryujin
RCRuskin,
Wanted to follow up as I've finished that video, you sent. I heard all of those stories during my time there and have seen some evidences to their claims. I arrived a short time after the house was torn down so the stories of that one particularly were still "fresh". From what they told me the reenactment actors of the murder/suicide had all met unfortunate fates shortly after. However that may be an embellishment of the story.

To you and Blosomes,

I would suggest a short video from a camera feed on the base. The Ghost of Kadena Gate 4, I worked a few blocks from that particular gate. In the video, you'll see a shadow milling about the gate. Security Forces only ever worked that Gate during the day similar to Clarkson Gate 4 in reasoning. At night, they said radios would sporadically speak nonsense and electronics would malfunction.
I probably should have mentioned this in the story above. Like most times that I visited the office at night, I would hear voices out in the maintenance bay talking loud enough to hear. Even though I could hear it plainly, I could only make out a few words now and again. Mostly it was talk of deployment or equipment in general. If I opened the door to the bay, the talking would stop.

The other would happen at anytime of day. I would catch a glimpse of a tall and older man walking by in uniform. I'd barely catch it most times but, when I could it was more of a translucent blur. My mother told me before I left the island, "Stand at attention and salute. When you do say 'Congratulations, Sir.'" When I finally did, I felt that the person had stopped in front of me and was pleased. What she had told me was, he'd been promoted but, passed away before he could receive it. So he paced the hallways trying to get to his ceremony that never came.
RCRuskin,
Yep, that would be the one. I haven't quite been able to watch the whole video just yet however, sorry. That story it spoke in the very beginning was one of the big ones. Got told about it shortly after my arrival.

As with the young girl, I couldn't say for sure on her account. I'm not too experienced in that area of expertise even now. I'm inclined to believe my friend based on her having knowledge about things she couldn't otherwise based on situations I can confirm. As in helping me find lost items despite never being anywhere near me due to geographical distance.

Only thing I could say from my personal experience to lean toward is her eyes. Her eyes were a milky white wear you could tell where her Iris and pupils should be. The stare in particular felt more like she was sort of looking directly at my face but, not quite sharply focused. Ultimately, she wasn't any sort of problem once she had stayed around. I do understand any concerns as to the oddity of the explanation since it's strange even to me. I do know that she would sit on the bucket mentioned since I'd feel her foot brush my leg like she was kicking her feet. Whether or not she actually -was- able to watch, I'm afraid likely no one would truly be able to confirm that.
Blosomes,
There were quite a few events and such going on on the based, not just Kadena AB. I recall a firefighter telling me about their Flightline station 5 (at least I think the number was 5). They were telling me how it was cold even during the summer and that they rarely used the on station bunks. Talked about a more classic story of a woman in white wandering the bunk areas. She liked to stare over anyone sleeping in the bunks he said. Mostly, they all stayed in the truck bay unless they needed the restrooms because of her wandering. I can't speak of that being true or not however as I wasn't a firefighter.

Those that I mentioned were largely the most active ones that I'd personally seen. Though, I had several more on the lighter side of activity.
Skadus, do you mean this place? Https://youtu.be/wuVZuGk2cmA

Military establishments seem to have a lot of weird goings on. Probably because of deaths that happen; probably because the instruments of death and destruction attract certain spirits.

I find it most curious that the spirit of the girl who went blind and then died could not see. It is not what I would expect to be so.

ZSneider, how comforting, and frightful, this is. To have this gifted woman come to the wake and present these words on behalf of your nephew meant a lot to your family, I'm sure. And then her last words before she left seem to tell me she isn't happy with this gift she has. Helping out the living is often more than enough of a burden.
RCRuskin in Nephew's Farewell
Ryujin, funerary customs, and the length of time for mourning and so on, varies greatly in various cultures and traditions. I recently read about some apparently very ancient funerary customs, circa 20, 000 years ago. The deceased would be buried in the foundation of a hut used by this hunter/gatherer tribe. After a few years, they would exhume the body and decorate the skull, after removing it from the rest of the skeleton, and place it in a position of honor with other ancestors.

My personal favorite funerary custom is The Last Kiss in Orthodox Christian funerals. As the choir sings hymns about death, the attendees of the funeral walk by the deceased. They may kiss the coffin/casket symbolically kissing goodbye, "shake hands", or whatever gesture. It really gives closure, being able to say good-bye.

Hmm...hearing clapping sounds... Reading along.
I think it should be something "paranormal people" will call rapping sound, which will occur during a poltergeist. Very well a presence of a paranormal being.

Not sure if it was your grandfather, but hey, maybe it was him? I am sure he will not want to see you crying after all.

Keep smiling and be happy for your grandfather so that he can be relieved. I know its sad and it is hard to get going but he is always there to support you.

Be well!

Thanks for the quick reply!
Oh I see, so it is like a ceremony held during a funeral?
Yes, in some culture funerals can last like for days.

People in Rome ages ago used to believe that a spirit will take at list 9 days to travel to the world where their ancestors are, they will need to held a proper funeral in order to guide the spirits (Or let the spirits know that they don't belong to this world no more) I know, its not the same but you know what I mean, right?
ZSneider in Nephew's Farewell
Thanks. "Wake" is like a vigil or a watch being held after a person just died. It is like a norm here in PH, whenever a person died they usually will held a wake for that person which lasts from several days to a week before burial.
Skadus
Wow! What an experience!
I have heard lots of strange stories from Okinawa but never on the base, its mostly local legends or local happenings.
Creepy... 😨

Hope you are doing well now!

Welcome and interesting story!
Does "wake" mean necromancy? Or is it just sighting of a person's spirit? Or should I say an appearance of the person's spirit?

Well in my opinion, it is not scary at all but rather heart warming. Which in here it is considered "good story" since its real. So far that I read stories here rarely will there be a "realistic" scary one, most "real ones" seemed to be very heart warming. Just my opinion.

Spirits of our family do exist in my belief though I did not experience any yet. But I did have some experience having my grandmother sending me messages through a shaman or a dream. 😉

I don't feel scary at all since the spirits were once a human being like we are. Try to be more open hearted, you might be able to receive more messages from the past. ❤

I nearly have coffee fountaining out of my nose reading this in a quiet café! LOL

Very interesting information... And YES, I do remember having a "Sister Cranky" too in my primary school. Brings back lots of good and bad memories...

Hi Mamamissy7

Condolences on your loss, I can't imagine how you feel right now but I do hope that you will be able to be in a good place, mentally and physically.

Perhaps what you experienced was a sign that things will get better as time goes by.
White scrubs or a white robe?

I too am very sorry for your loss and I pray that your late son's Memory be Eternal.

I am curious to know, but you do not have to answer this at all, but are you spiritual or religious in the sense that you have a favorite spiritual understanding of the world? (Christian, Buddhist, Moslem, Jewish, etc.)

Because my gut feeling is this figure is not on the hospital staff.
I am really really sorry for your lost...
You must be having a really really bad time...
About the man you saw... Was he wearing white or is he a white guy? Just wondered...
But no matter what... I hope you will get well soon... And I am sorry I lost words for your situation... Really hoping every will be ok soon.

Ryujin
I've had the same encounter. Except mine felt more paranormal. I was awoken by a baby crying. I was sleeping in a guest room visiting my mom from out of state cuz I was attending a semester of college in Utah. Anyway I hear this baby crying and I think nothing of it because in my head I'm just like oh well the neighbors must have a baby. Well I'm facing towards the window, blinds closed and curtains shut when I see a shadow figure walk by. I look out the window but no one is there. I lay back down and I see see the shadow figure so I look once more. Still nothing. I than lay back and down and just feel someone standing behind my bedside and when I turn to see its this shadow figure. It looked like this man wearing this black trench coat just staring at me with nothingness into his face. Pure darkness with black eyes. Its crazy to see how black his eyes were. That was all that was noticeable on him. We stared at each other all night. I was locked in terror I had no idea how to move in these moments. Hours had passed it felt until I finally dug up the courage to turn the other way in bed and get under the covers. I stayed under the covers the rest of the night but I knew he was standing over me. I could feel his presence as if he wasn't standing beside me anymore but hovering over me because I feel the pressure as if someone had laid on top of me. I stayed that way for the rest of the night. Up until a blender turned on in the kitchen. When I heard the blender and felt the weight had been lifted and when raising my head above the sheets there was no one in sight. I remember getting up and telling my mom the whole story. I never slept in that room again but until this day I still phyche myself sometimes into thinking I still this man in my room sometimes but don't think he means you any harm. He'll scare the shii out of you but alas I was unharmed when having this encounter. Just scarred mentally lol

Just a few facts that may help you 'date' your nun. (Okay, that reads awfully odd.) The headpiece you describe is called a cornette, worn by the Daughters of Charity until 1965. They were founded in 1633, but did not arrive in Australia until 1926. (Personally I think that it's some kind of rule, that ALL Catholic schools have at least one cranky old nun that scares kids.) 😆

Looking back to the story again and reading the comments.
A person's thought and feeling is said can last up until nearly 400 years. Not scientifically proven, but in some old castle sites in Japan, it is kind of like a very old legend, for more then 100 years people were claiming to see armored people wondering. Since those periods where people wore armor were like nearly more then 400 years dating from the 2020's, the sightings of that is getting less.

What I want to say where sometimes a person's thought is so strong that it will be last until their after life, and only time can cure their feelings sometimes, even if they are happy or angry or sad.

To answering Rajine' s question, I am not sure but maybe she is always around doing her routine. Something might have happened to make her linger around after 100 years. Since weekends are probably quiet (Correct me if I am wrong), she might have been there doing her everyday work. Or, since she is a nun, maybe she is just there to do her weekend duty and found that there were kids around and so she was angry.

Just my guess Sir.

Rajine, good question-I don't recall anything strange happening during the week as school would be packed with screaming kids and I am going back nearly forty years ago, too.
mamamissy7 in Was He A Ghost?
Wow, that is sad. He must not have realized that he had died since it had happened so fast and unexpectedly. That would explain why he was confused when he didn't have your order. I hope he is able to crossover. Thank you for sharing. I believe you because I have heard of this happening with unexpected deaths where spirits linger because they don't realize that they are dead or are not ready to leave Earth yet.
i had this happen lots when I was a kid about 8 years old, I was havin a tough time then had an encounter with a boy on my stairs who looked like a negative photograph, then not long after they showed up at night for months, the chantering noise like someone chanting but whispered chanting, reading strange books while stood all around my bed they didn't go when I moved either, browny red robes with hoods over there heads about 3-4 feet tall, busy movements. I felt they helped me control my emotions at the time.
Rajine
Thank you for commenting!
Sure it is and I want to believe so. 😁

Valkricry
Awesome! Memory, memory, memory!
Thank you very much! 😉

Hello Rajine and thanks for commenting!

Well, I was told that the farm house itself is built around 1950s, there is a previous owner of the farm house. He needed to move to Tokyo which is far away from where the house is. And he is rather young, around mid 40 or 50 in age.

So I don't think the house itself have a history or any background story.

The closet, which I found out like last week, I was told by an antique wholesaler that it is made around 1800s during the Meiji period. He said that it might have owned by a upper class person, but he can not really tell who really might have owned it.

My theory will be the previous owner might have bought the closet from an antique store and just left it in his attic. Really, that is all I can think of for now but it is kind of creepy for me... I got more story to share about this closet.

Ryujin
That is definitely a very interesting and very strange encounter that you had, but I think that it could possibly be a guardian angel as [at] RCRuskin mentioned, averting a possible disaster.
Hi blosomes

Do you know who owned the house previously, or even the history of the house?

Do you think perhaps there's another reason as to why the door slammed shut? If not, then maybe you should seek help from someone who will be able to tell you more.
Rajine in Clap?!
Hi 00786

Perhaps it was your grandfather, giving you a sign to say goodbye and that he'll still be around and that you shouldn't be sad.
Rajine in The Old Nun
Hi AussieRedDog

She must be a really dedicated person to still be around a hundred years later, the things that you and your friend experienced in the school happened during the weekend when no one was around and everything was quiet, has this sort of thing happened after that first time, say when the school was in full attendance?
RCRuskin
Thank you for you comment sir.
Yes, maybe it is a guardian angel!
I have forgotten that this is a new account... 😕

Well, in my other account I think I have written a few stories about a heroic ghost phantom boy in that same shopping mall.
It might be him but until now I am not sure 🤔

Ryujin
A guardian angel perhaps? Or a guardian spirit of some kind is my guess. I too would rather see a ghost than see a ghost being made.
Wow, what a relief!

You know what? I used to work in a haunted building. We used to have night shifts (grave yard shift?) but nobody really wanted to stay until midnight...

I used to go for night shift, but the managers will not arrange me into that shift since really no one wants to stay until midnight for some reason. 🙄

I did some research and found out that the location where the building is used to be a ghettos where many crimes happened... Hmm 🤔

I was told once by a young building manager (cleaner) that he will see shady people at the basement floor during around 2:00 to 3:00 morning (or midnight) eerie... 😨
I am kind of late for my comments but this made me cry 😭
I remember when my grandfather died my grandmother use to say that she dreamed about grandfather but did not know how to communicate with him even he was right in front of her 🤔
That does not seem to be the matter at all for your case of you Senhora Lady-Glow.

Remember I used to write about encounters with my old house cat, Aurora back in Brazil? Not now a days but years ago, I used to dream of her whenever I feel sad, and you know how house cats can be so touching sometimes as if they know we feel sad and wanted to make us smile? That's what she will do most of the time in my dream.

I am sure you know, a person will just act like the person him/her self in our dreams too. Sir JR might be worried about you right until you told him that you don't need him anymore, he respects you and so he went along. Just my thoughts 😉

Ryujin
Interesting encounter 😲

As Rajine commented, try to do some research and you might find something interesting!

And as a ex-ghost walker too, I recommend doing research yourself to make your tour much more interesting in the future 😉

Not me but back in Brazil my father used to see old solders marching in an evening beach nearby and always would say that my grandpa was there too 😕 Really? But now, I kind of want to believe in that. 😐
