I originally did not write love this clown but wrote love this story & still fascinated by the story not clown.
Someone changed my original wording somehow& someway
lady-glow in The Easter Bunny
Elaina_maria - the only logical explanations I can think would be:

A) someone dressed up like the Easter Bunny to play the part.

B) the lights from a passing vehicle casted a shadow that you mistook for a giant rabbit.

If none of these happened, - was that the only time you saw the bunny? Were there any other disturbances and/or unexplained sightings in your house?
Lastly, did you get chocolate and candy in your basket?

Who knows, perhaps the Easter Bunny really exist! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks for sharing.

Haven - ha ha ha!
It's not easy to follow your comment with all those colourful guys distorting your words! ๐Ÿ˜

Okay, I better read this story.
Hi, Erica -

It doesn't make sense that your grandfather would try to scare you. You say this boy was giving you this evil grin. Perhaps it was a spirit just passing through since you don't mention you saw him again.

Thanks for sharing.
Hi, Elaina Maria -

It must have been very frightening for you to see this big bunny just standing there in your dining room.

Before your encounter with this "bunny", were you afraid of him? That would explain why this "thing" took the appearance of the Easter Bunny. I have noticed that people always see entities that look like things they have always been scared of. Kind of like when people see the devil or demon with a red body and horns, or they see the grim reaper. I also noticed that depending on the country or culture, people will see entities that they have 'learned' to fear.

Sorry if I don't make sense. I'm babbling. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
That wasn't Chucky, it was Pinocchio and, possibly Edward Scissorhands trimming the bushes. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Perhaps a homeless person has been living in the old cabin and peed on the kitchen floor.

Have you gone back to see if the 'blood' is still there?
Hi, Freakedoutfreddy -

Are you sure you didn't have your "doobie" before you saw Chucky? It would explain a lot.

Hello Martin and Mods,

It's hilarious that you have replaced some words with 'clown' in a few threads.

In stitches laughing.

Really weird. "c l o w n" became -p.u.r.p.l.e p.a.n.t.s- and "s t o r y" became -c.l.o.w.n
majarlika012 in The World Paused
I am not sure what is happening but I keep on seeing the word "clown" in mot of the comments. In my comment itself (to one of the stories) I saw the word "clown" but I do not remember including that word.

BTW, nice story. I would want to ask you a few questions but seems like you don't want to participate. So sad.
Expathistorical ~

I can't offer much of anything useful on your doorbell sound save that the human ear is not really well designed to aid with direction finding.

On your flash of light, sounds to me like the dying gasp of an incandescent bulb.
Relax SugarANDspice. I actually think it is hilarious... LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hmm... I probably will be frighten too if I saw a green faced g I r l... O_O

[at] SugarANDspice, Hahaha Happy A p r I l's f oo l day ๐Ÿ˜† I think its the admin's way of celebrating it by changing some words to C L O W N, P u r p l e P a n t s and B I g R e d N o s e... And I find them hilarious ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†
Omg! My last comment says why is the word purple pants showing up!?
I typed the word C L O W N (sorry I had to type it that way because it keeps changing the word once published)
Why is the word clown constantly showing up? I have never seen this before. Thanks

So,by the time this experience happened, the machines had been turning on inexplicably regularly for TEN years?!?! Do you know if your uncle had tried to find a solution to this problem?

For some reason I find it hard to believe than a businessman would do nothing to stop the increasing costs of the power bill after all those years, regardless of he considered this to be a technical problem. ๐Ÿค”

What happened after your visit? Do you know if the activity continues or if your uncle has done something to find what is causing the machines to start working on their own?

what is going on? Who changed my words for clown? IT'S NOT FUNNY!

Pasindu in Cigarette Smell come to think of it, I too wonder how the hell we all squeeze under the bed, well there is a explanation, when you are angry or scared we tend to do things we could never do in our normal life (Adrenaline) well that day we were scared to hell, our friend pass out means not sleeping but fainted, the bed was in the middle of the room and two guys on sides had to cover them self's with the blankets and pillows.
Hi expathistorical--I enjoyed reading your account. Phantom doorbell ringing is a very commonly reported paranormal phenomenon and is often believed to be a spirit making contact. Other phantom sounds like a phone ringing, fire alarm and, as I have experienced, a ticking clock have also been reported.

The sound of a doorbell ringing can also be a hypnogogic hallucination. People just drifting off to sleep or waking up often report hearing phantom sounds like doorbells, snippets of music and even voices calling their name. As you were awake and about it seems likely that you had a brief visit from a spirit. The flash of light you later witnessed is something I've seen before myself. In my case I believe it was my deceased parents paying me a visit.

Thanks for sharing your experiences

Something about new reports of events or something. See, people, this is why you need to keep notes.
Terrifyingly, below was meant to read *terrifying you*. Apologies for the oversight.

Hi Morbiddasies, thanks for the explanation about the mine's closing and the difference in sound.
It would certainly be disconcerting for me to experience the sounds of a man's suicide over and over.
I suppose one can get used to anything.
I absolutely loved this story. As much as I love reading about ghost stories... Stories of the Gilded Age barons and their families and homes equally fascinate me. The photos of her statue are so beautiful. I want to see it one day. Thank you for writing this.
LuciaJacinta in Cigarette Smell
I enjoyed your story. Thanks for sharing. Did you all hide under the bed together? It must have been a big bed.
Jan - Thanks for your response.

There are really so many species of animals that many of us don't know, indigenous to various countries.

My favoruite buck is the Kudu. It really is a beautiful, majestic buck, particularly the male. When you have a free moment google it!

msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?

As America was settled, the majestic white tailed deer had kept the pilgrims warm, with the pelts, preserved. They provided nutritional food. Their horns can be found, fashioned into fork and knife handles. Even smaller handles for eatery utensils. I do not think this was taught by N. American, but were skills also passed down from England, Europe, and beyond. Cave art has featured a deer like animal, and on and on. We have loved this graceful, wonder for eons!

I had always thought the white tail had been an East Coast American animal. As they are down into Virginia, they loose much of their size. Florida has the mini version.

I have collected stag glass made in Czech, under the Egermann label. The stag featured in the beautiful glass is similar to the white tail deer, but horns are different. (blue glass).

My love for the National Geography went back to a time where I was just learning to read. My Grandmother had the first copy, dating to the early 1900s, and every copy after that, long before TV. โค

Here in North Dakota, bison farmers have reported to me heards of up to 400 white tails crossing their lands (within the past fifteen years). So where the area permits it, they will still generate such large herds. It's easy to check if that's what you saw. Go back to the path, walk it a bit and look for tracks. A heard that size would have left plenty.

The destruction of the understory is a classic sign of overbrowsing, but you need not have a herd the size that you reported to decimate the understory of a glade. You are correct that ticks are a dangerous vector for all large mammals.

I didn't finish my PhD dissertation on migratory ungulates so I hope this was useful instead. Lol.
Jan - I did a quick google search on your white tailed deer and discovered it is also known as the Virginia deer. Apparently it has spread far afield to different states in the US, New Zealand, Canada, South America. This is what I quickly glanced on Wiki.

It really is a beautiful animal and those males have incredible antlers!

Two of the episodes that I've watched on National Geographic were when a hippo tried to save a Springbok from the jaws of a crocodile. Unfortunately the buck's neck was broken and it died. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. The hippo literally chased off the croc and carried the buck to dry land.

Another rather touching story was when an Impala (I think) gave birth and immediately the lions moved in. A lioness rushed ahead and chased off the rest of the pack. She then took responsibility for this little baby but the little buck needed food and the lioness couldn't provide it, obviously! Anyway eventually the baby found its mother, only to be taken by a croc when fording a river. I could fill a page on this event, I'm only giving you the basics.

I saw this on TV so unfortunately can't give you links. Perhaps you saw it?

I hope you are in good health.

Dear all,
Thank you for so many answers! I'll try to answer all of it, hope I don't skip anything ๐Ÿ˜„
So, first off, [at] anno_domini, I guess the road was built so that the forestmen (the people who work there, don't know what theyre called) could reach out for trees deeper in the forest? I don't really know though.
[at] silverknight I go there at various different times, sometimes early in the morning and other times just before night. As much as I remember, my dogs didn't seem to care about the voice, like they didn't hear it at all. Which is weird because they're usually very vary of strangers. They did get upset once they noticed my reaction, but that's normal considering dogs can detect fear pretty easily.
[at] lady-glow there's actually stories about tons of people being burried there during the world war 2, there's also a memorial park that we call The Graveyard of Partisans (it's called Memorial Park Dotrลกฤ‡ina, if you want to look it up). Very interesting place, I could actually write a whole another story about that forest.
majarlika012 in Ghost Of A Patient
Wow! This is a nice story. I think I can see how you look when your mother asked you to join their conversation. I wonder how your mom would have reacted if you told her right at that moment that she was speaking to no one.

Anyways, yeah maybe the spirit just wanted to visit your mom and say hi. They had created this bond when they were confined in that hospital.
the22centuryboi in The Children At Cairnhill
Hello Jubeele,

I would say it would be fun to share history and experiences over a kopi c (coffee) at a kopi-tiem any day. But I do like drinking beer at the coffee shops. I have met some wonderful and had delightful conversations there.

I do agree that the history gets lost so many times. Maybe when you visit again, just leave some candy for the kids. But I am not sure if it is allowed to leave candy like that in Singapore as they may attract ants.

Again, you mentioned those names what I wouldn't be aware of if it wasn't for you. Thank you for the information. It is amazing I was unaware of Singapore's old name. I am a bit ashamed. ๐Ÿ˜จ
hey vulcan10
That is soooo creepy intresting story! To actually hear someone in there when no one was there.
Hi Bradsmom.
I agree with RCRuskin. Stay away from demons. They can come in any form and usually do to convince the living that they are an innocent child or a person crying. Numerous members on YGS have seen demons in disguise. Take care!
Hello Jubeele,

Thanks for reading my experience. I thought my story has gone to the archives as I wasn't active for a while.

I have heard people do get the sense of it when their time on earth is going to run out. And about the crying incident, it could have been just me. But it is certainly nice to believe that he did come and said goodbye.

Pulling the hair over my eyes and closing them was how my friends explained my trance-like state. I had long locks then I guess. We have all been through that phase. Maybe it was one of those phases. From what my friends said, they did close the session properly though it took some deliberation from all of them as the girl holding the coin was moving it all over the OB.

I read somewhere that once someone comes out of a trance, it takes time for the body to get used to the state it is in. Something like inertia. Maybe it was just that. I don't think I am quite susceptible to influence or suggestion as I question almost everything out. I remember when I was a kid and my mom was trying teach me English words, I had asked why not kat instead of cat. Just an example of my questioning nature. I haven't used a OB since that session until date, actually come to think of it, it was the last time I went to that house.

I miss those times with friends and these experiences are not just me recollecting the events that happened, if you notice it also talks about some of the things that are nearest to my heart.

I don't usually provoke any entity (read as not that I have met such an entity) but I do try to elicit a reaction from the other side as I have said in the story. Curiosity is just second nature to me.

I really appreciate you reading my story and commenting on it. Thanks a ton.
Hi Toyatoyang. IF he was indeed a spirit, maybe he passed away there and still has not moved to the Light. I believe not all spirits know they are gone, especially if they died from a quick impact and will continue to repeat what they were doing right before they passed away. So maybe he was standing there when he was struck by a vehicle and his soul is still hanging around. By the way, did he ever make any eye contact with you guys? Just curious.
I have a feeling if he was a real boy, he would have looked at you and your friend or tried to get your attention somehow, considering it was just the three of you around at that time. Just what I'd like to believe. Good share.
morbiddaisies in The Miners House
[at] RCRuskin - Yes the house is still in the family. It's a lovely house. I miss it.

[at] Kindly_refrain - The mines shut down in 1990. I asked my dad about it and he said there is a major difference between the explosions from the mines and the thud from the stool. He remembers the ground slightly rumbling and vibrating, the walls would shake a tiny bit. My dad tells me that when they used explosives, it would be around 6:30/7:00am in the morning. The thud that he, my grandparents and I hear is so loud that we jump.

[at] RSAChick - We hope so too.
Being from Indonesia I would have imagined that your first instinct would have been to attribute that to a pontianak / kuntilanak... So I find your story a little strange.

Good Morning Melda,

I have watched many films on African animals and birds. Nature lovers have interest in Africa, world wide. There seems to be so many more animals. My lessons started with the early National Geographic. Both Africa, Central and South America are abundant with strange creatures.

We love our white tailed deer, Lost somewhere in my old computer, I had a bunch of snap pictures of a young fawn and her Mother. We have a camera that when set right, it will take a dozen or more one second pictures. Mother was eating grass and the fawn was dancing around Mother. I made the grass in her mouth be gone and each picture one second apart became a cartoon of mother scolding at the Fawn. Deer grind their food, from one side to the other. Not always a pretty picture. โค ๐Ÿ˜Š

My best to you, Melda
Hello. Great story. I just googled her statue. Does she look like her statue?
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hi Val,

Seeing deer in this particular area is not unusual. Other years we have seen a large amount 30 or more. At any other time, the deer where all headed the same direction, but were up down and all over the hill, traveling as they wished. The common belief is that there is a food shortage in Quabbin and where they are headed is large open farming area, with many fields, that was settled in the 1700s.

I and my Husband have lived here, and driven and walked Quabbin when we could. There is little that we have not seen over the 40+ years. Wonderful pictures and memories. And we both kept our weight down.

They have opened up deer hunting in certain sections, for the last few years. Many rules and restrictions apply. The reason was overpopulation and deer loss from starvation. Lately we have seen the wood's floor loose underbrush, a food nibbled by deer. We have pondered as to if this ground cover loss is done by man or deer. I have been told, ticks are as dangerous for deer, as they are to man. Underbrush is loaded with dear ticks (Lyme).

Who knows why we saw what we saw, but if you wait long enough you will find everything changes.
โค โค
Hi expathistorical, I always find smaller, random event fascinating.

I was wondering how long the phantom doorbell sound lasted for and how did it end? Was it just as random as it started, or did it fade out? Also, did the volume of sound change as you looked for a source?

With the bright flash of light, did it seem to come from a certain area or did the whole house seem to light up? Was there any noise either? I appreciate you were outside and it was only a split second flash which you were not expecting.

Thanks for posting

Griff ๐Ÿ˜Š
Jan - I thoroughly enjoyed reading your story. You have had many positive responses and I'm afraid I don't much to add to that.

In Africa (as I'm sure happens in the US as well) we have literally thousands of buck migrating and sadly, it is in search of food and water. These "treks" are very often made up of many, many Wildebeest, interspersed with Zebra and other buck. Africa is such a dry continent.

I have witnessed similar events at the Kruger National Park in South Africa and Etosha in Namibia. Both unbelievably beautiful game reserves. I'm quite certain I haven't witnessed these migrations to the capacity that they often occur but it is a breathtaking sight nonetheless.

What I have not personally witnessed, fortunately, is the crossing of the rivers where many of the unfortunate animals are taken by crocodiles. I can't even watch this on TV without taking my leave and finding some other less distressing activity.

Being a nature and animal lover myself, I thought I'd share that with you. I am by no means an expert, only an occasional observer!

Regards, Melda
I'm assuming these were white tail deer, which are the most common in your state. In general they don't travel very far, usually 2 - 3 square miles, BUT they'll go further if food is scarce. Interestingly enough the deers in the Western states DO migrate. "The longest mule deer migration ever recorded was in Wyoming. Thousands of deer migrate 150 miles from winter range in Wyoming's Red Desert to summer range in the mountains. This 300-mile round-trip journey is the greatest large mammal migration in the continuous United States." ( Bigdeer blog also says that the migration route is handed down from generation to generation.
I don't think it's too far of a stretch to think that at one time this route memory held true for the Eastern states deer too.
If what you saw was a trek for food, it would have been serious business indeed, and the young ones may not have had the extra energy for gamboling about.
Now, let's add in the fact that cameras simply refused to work or the pictures came out totally blurred. (If I understood correctly, only in the areas the deer should have been seen? As in the rest of the picture was clear?) Curious indeed!
It well could have been residual, or even a wee time slip.
RSAChick in The Miners House
Just read in the comments of your previous story that the town is Nigel, thanks.
RSAChick in The Miners House
While reading, I had similar thoughts about nearby mining activity as Kindly_refrain.
But highly unlikely for this type of blasting to take place every day at the same time for decades, it seems?

This is a sad story. I hope their souls have found peace.

Could you share the town's name, morbiddaisies?
There is an overabundance of deer in many areas due to their natural enemies all but being eradicated. I don't think there was anything paranormal going on; just an encounter with nature.
Hi, Kafka -

Sounds like a bad nightmare. I have had dreams where I wake up and I can still hear the voices that were in my dream. It's like they stay in your head and you can still hear them when you're awake. I've also woken up with body parts hurting when I dream that I hurt myself. I will wake up with a soar throat when I have been yelling and screaming in my dream.

We can't be sure if that's what happened to you but it's a possibility.

Thanks for sharing.
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hi Val, I should re-read before answering. If the deer went out of sight and walked down behind the same hill, in a matter of time, you would see the same deer. Bazaar! That never came to mind! Oh Deer, Lady-glow is right! ๐Ÿ˜ณ
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?

The dog did nothing because someone put raw red meat in the oversized dish... The dog over did the size of his belly... He fell over with his legs in the air... Tongue to one side and panted painfully. Curious... Very Curious... And that was why...

Magnificent, said in a whisper, something that only happens once in a lifetime.

Hi LuciaJacinta,

Yes it was the night of the super moon. My Husband came into the house, with a big grin. He went to the side window, smiling, saying I have something I want you to see. He stood aside took the shade and pushed it up slowly. There it was larger than usual, a very big moon, just coming up over the hills. Beautiful!

Jan ๐Ÿ˜Š
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hi Jubeele, nice to hear from you,

I think you may be right, residual makes a lot of sense, One thing my Husband remarked upon, if this is a picture of something that took place long ago, then the camera was not even invented, so the image can not be kept, or taken by something that should not even be there.

I read not long ago, that as the ice has melted, it has opened a shelf, where long ago there had been a trail used by elk and reindeer. This shelf was part of their trail from winter to summer. I can imagine a residual experience like that.

What we noticed and talked about was that even the young deer did not hop and skip as we have often seen today. Playing was not allowed I guess, this was serious business.
"I refer you to the curious behavior of the dog in the nighttime."

"But the dog did nothing."


At least, that is how I remember the dialogue from, I think, The Adventure of Silver Blaze, a Sherlock Holmes short story. Plot summary: prize race horse disappears, its trainer is dead from a serious head wound and the guard dog did not raise any alarm during the night. Sherlock Holmes found that to be a singularly important clue.

Without more data we're left with two conclusions, I think. Either something supernatural was going on, or you both were clumsy with the cameras, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. ๐Ÿ˜

Anything might happen once. If it happens twice it is a coincidence. If it happens three or more times, it is significant. - from a high school literature class I took more years ago than I care to admit.

If nothing else, you had a great view of some magnificent animals.
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hello Rex-T

I love nature, but where my Husband and I differ is, how many shots are needed. I got pis-y one day as he has up loaded thousands of pictures into my computer, REALLY! Of hummingbirds cows and horses. I always have loved pictures of people... Not 600 pictures of the moon, where his camera has closed in and the moon looks like an orange. GRRRR thankyou Rex-T, for letting me vent.

Oh that felt good! You guys went to Scotland, my dream is to visit Scotland and England, I want to see the homesteads of my Ancestors, but travel is impossible now. I never thought about deer in Scotland, never got past all the sheep!

The black bear are common now, but not when I was young. My thoughts are as all the city people built their second homes in Vermont and New Hampshire and the ski resorts loaded up with people, the bear moved down to our wilderness areas. There is many large donations of lands, where it can be good conditions for bear and wolf, and coyote. They come out of protection to eat then go back in to hide.
LuciaJacinta in Many Many Deer, Why?
Was it a full moon? Animals do odd things. I'm sure they had a reason. Mating season perhaps? As for why none came out on camera I don't know.

One night I had an experience where I saw tons and tons of raccoons in the same area. I think animals have patterns of behavior that is driven by an internal force. The deer probably were following their instincts
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hi There RC, doing well how are you,

If you have read what I sent to Lady-glow, you know we have no pictures. I in no way was thinking anything paranormal, I deleted mine while still in the car. My husband found the clicker inoperable, strange as it worked just fine later. He was frustrated as he is quite a pro with photography. I do not know how to do a video, on this phone, but do not think quick like that anymore.

So RC I am interested as to what you have for a conclusion. I just wanted to add, there were six deer eating my neighbors bush, a couple of years ago, early one morning. I had my old phone then, and from our deck, I was able to get off some good shots. When increasing their size in my computer, they were fuzzy. It was winter, and as I spooked them, I think their fur rises, much like the hair rising feeling you get when spooked.

Sorry I could not provide you with pictures.

Jan ๐Ÿ˜ข
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hi Lady-glow, glad to hear from you,

Yes oh deer, my heart ticked super fast, what a sight.

My Dad would tell how my Mother, met a black bear, face to face, while blueberry picking. Glad it wasn't me.

There is little traffic on that road. If anyone had passed us, between their cell phone and earbuds, I doubt they would have noticed.

Time-slip, what a good thought. My husband has some pricy cameras, but his refused to work, on that day. Worked fine that evening when taking like a million shots of the super moon. But not while trying to get an image of the deer. My camera, was going off, I only got wood shots, but the time I captured the deer, it blurred out both the deer and the path, I deleted them.

Take care! โค
msforgetmenott in Many Many Deer, Why?
Hi Val, good to hear from you,

The area where we observed this, has thousands of protected acres. This land circles around and about waterways that is Boston MA water. Although Boston is 50-60 miles away, engineers developed the plans in the 1800s. Studied and corrected to the 1930s, destroying the sweet little farm communities for ever. Gravity feed toward Boston, where without it, there would have never be enough water for todays use.

Every home, farm, church, and cemetery or industry was either purchased and torn down or moved. Nothing was spared. The house next to us was moved from Quabbin Reservoir, a large two level home. It was cut right down the middle, moved in two separate pieces and placed on a new (then) foundation. The neighbor, proud to show the cut line, under the rug.

We walked in Quabbin, when younger, poking around many old foundations, looking for treasure. Often planted bushes remained, but never treasure. Just sad memories. A haunting place, to the sensitive.

There ends the history lesson:

A main road splits a small section of Quabbin land, this is where we encountered the deer. There is a high hill on the right side. The deer walked with purpose, a very big buck first, behind him there was a mix of doe and stag, often side by side or wider. At the end of the group were the young some with fading spots. A space of 20-30 feet, then a very big buck, and repeat but always a space between the young and the next big buck.

The deer walked, there was no running or jumping. They appeared to us, from rounding the lower part of the hill, all on the right side of the road. There was fresh snow, but they had a path, where dirt and leaves had opened, making us wonder if this was a yearly thing. Each group was 30-40 head count, but a good gap between what we called families.
Hi Jan

This is a wonderfully evocative account. You've drawn us all into the idyllic charm of the scene. Rex and I would love to come and visit that lovely part of the world. โค

I wonder if you've stumbled on a residual impression. "The view made me think of a much earlier time, thousands of years ago." Perhaps it was an action done over and over again by thousands of herds. The memory could have lingered on, stirred into being now and again when the conditions are right, and seen only by people who are receptive to the experience.

I've taken photos of my last workplace which was said to be haunted. Some have turned out clear and normal, while others were oddly distorted and fuzzy. Then my camera refused to work for a few moments. In these days of the auto-focus functionality on cameras, that is rather mystifying to me. I still wonder if someone didn't want their picture taken! ๐Ÿ™„
Hi Jan, hope all is well with you and family.

Whether real or paranormal, for me, this is a really uplifting experience.

Growing up in Australia, a "City Boy" only has to travel ten minutes down the road, to be in the "Bush". I have encountered Kangaroos and the occasional Deer while fishing.

Jubeele encountered a large group of Deer while on a Manor Estate in Scotland and took a lot of photos on her phone. I've recently downloaded them to my new notepad and digitally enhanced them. No photos came out, like you described. I'm sure there will be camera experts out there that will have valid explanations but maybe the wonder is in the numbers and silent procession like behaviour of the Deer.

When travelling through the American South West, we were constantly warned about Bears (both brown and black) from various guides. "Keep your distance, do not turn your back on them, no sudden movements, don't feed them, etc, etc". Outside of Zion National Park we saw the only bear of our whole tour, which was focused on ripping the lid off a skip bin to get to the yummy smells inside.

I take my hat off to you and lady-glow for your cool heads when faced with these behemoths.

Hello Grey-Ghost, I too have heard accounts of formal training (school if you will) in the afterlife.

In separate occasions two friends of mine (they did not know each other) were visited by their recently deceased mothers. In both cases the mothers said they had to make the visit short as they had to return to their orientation classes.

The visits took place about a week after death and the sense was that the training was at about the half way point.

Hello Morbiddaisies, in a nearby town to me, something similar occurs but for other reasons than in your account. I am not trying to discount your experience as you were there and I was not but I offer the following as a possibility.

There is a limestone quarry near the town and every day, at the exact same time of day, they use explosives to blast out the rock face. There is a thud, the ground trembles and the buildings shake. This is done at the same time of day so that the locals know not to be alarmed by the sounds and sensations.

If the mine near your grandparent's house is (was) still active and they follow a similar blasting protocol there, it may (or may not) explain what you experienced.
Hi, Jan!
I have a question; you say "The large buck was leading, there would be young bucks mixing with the doe, and finally the smaller yearlings. We noticed a space between the groups, then the very large Buck and again a similar chain of deer." Do you mean the herd repeated this action, or was it another group led by another large buck?
Grey Ghost,
Nice story and pretty amazing. This is not the first time I heard of a ghost telling someone they are back in school. A man who lost his young daughter was recalling a story where his daughter appeared to him one evening about a year after her death when he was feeling very distraught over her loss. She told him she was fine now and attending school in the spirit world daily learning things of a universal nature. Perhaps the young woman's ghost didn't want to alarm your mom and just wanted to visit her. We can never know how important our friendship is to someone who was sick as the young lady at the time your mom stayed with her. Just take comfort in knowing that we go on after leaving the physical world. Good luck in the future!

Hi, Bradsmom. I second Lady Glow's greeting. We're opinionated here, but we mostly get along okay.

Such interesting entities!

Stay away from demons. Don't think anything more needs to be said on that part.

Hopefully, you'll be able to ask the crying lady what she needs or wants help with.

Telling that man who keeps pushing you down the stairs that this is the 21st century won't help, I think. Maybe you could tell him that you're only assisting a man and that might placate him?

And, again, what Lady Glow said.
Hi, Jan. Hope you're doing well this morning.

If it were possible, could you please post some of the photos, or a video clip if video was shot? I'd like to see this before I come to a conclusion.

May his Memory be Eternal.

Is the house still in your family?

There are numerous schools of thought, yes thinking of college brought this on - pun intended, on what happens after we die. The one I like most personally is that for a period of time after death, one is free to move around to wherever one chooses. So it seems reasonable to me, and not at all a lie, that your mother's late roommate would return to her studies at university.
notjustme in Ghost Of A Patient
I agree with Lady-glow. I believe her soul has been released from her sickly body and is now free and healed. Perhaps because she had just passed on not too long ago, her soul was still hanging around there for a bit. As for college, maybe that's what she missed the most, as she was young and never got the chance to finish her studies. Thanks for sharing. I can only imagine how you felt when your mother started chatting to an empty chair then asked you to join ๐Ÿ˜„
His not evil, if he was you feel his dark negative vibration.
And you would feel the negative feeling.

I am not sure what he is
There are many types of beings in this existence from different universes and different planes.
Sorry I can not tell you anymore I am new to being spiritual and I am still trying to enhance my gifts and my knowledge.

If you really want to find out you could go to and ask the people over there, they can find answers for you. There are some really gifted people and they can explain you more of reincarnation.

Reincarnation is real sometimes we remember how are past lives sometimes people end up with fear from previous lives example someone with fear of water has died drowned in their past life.
But this shocks can be released usually during astral projections

Good Luck!

Hello Kafka - I would suggest for you to do two things:

A) check the stories in the "Shadow People" paranormal category of the site, some members have had positive encounters with these entities, and others not so much.

B) if you aren't currently writing one, start a journal of your dreams.

In my opinion, it's hard to say if the " breathing whispers and footsteps" were real or if your frighten state made you mistake normal noises for something else, specially if there's no previous history of paranormal activity in your house - something that you don't mention in your narrative.

What kind of material were you watching in YouTube that night? Do you think this could have influenced your dreams?

Welcome to YGS.

Do you know how to protect and shield yourself to avoid being attacked by negative entities?

Perhaps you could research online or ask a religious leader of your choice for advice on this matter, though some religions are not to open when it comes to deal with the paranormal, I think you should be able to get a blessed object or some protective prayer/s that could use before entering not only a haunted place but any other building.

If those spirits are asking for your help and the one you think is a demon has trapped them there and is feeding on their energy, I wouldn't recommend for you to try to help unless you know what you are doing, you don't want to bite more than you can chew.

I hope the following article can be of some usw:


Please keep us posted.
Hello Jan - Oh deer! This experience is puzzling and beautifully narrated.;-)

My guess would be a time slip? It is odd that none of the pictures would show any of all those deer.

Was there any mention on the news about deer on the area? I would expect drivers to be cautioned of the presence of such a numerous herd on the road. An encounter between a large buck and a small vehicle can be nasty.

I love black bears and their antics though I prefer to watch them from a distance. Once I came face to face with one perhaps 3 feet away from me and with nothing between us! And another one climbed on a plum tree braking a heavy branch that landed on my small car totaling it!

Thanks for sharing. โค

Welcome to YGS.

" the spirit was harmless but what is the point of meeting my mother and telling her a lie"

Sometimes death is freedom, just imagine the feeling of that young woman's spirit without the burden and pain of a sick body, it makes perfect sense for her to say that she's fine. As for going back to college, who knows, perhaps spirits learn some things after crossing over?

Thanks for sharing this interesting experience.

[at] Melda - Hi, thank you for your comment and advice.

Actually I'm pretty in love with this mirror and I'm not even too sure that the energy we noticed came from the mirror.

So, as long "it" doesn't comes back, I will keep the mirror. But yeah, I will keep your post in mind and maybe try those methods if needed, thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š
year_long_summer - I apologise for all the drama.

If you have experiences to share, please do so. I have no doubt that the YGS members would love to read them ๐Ÿ˜Š

Regards, Melda
RSAChick - I do agree with your point of view and in fact I have ignored most of the aggression directed towards me. I complained like mad at one stage and then decided to ignore.

What actually irritates me to a large extent is when the "hate group" targets posters who reply positively, only to be down voted because their aggression is actually aimed at me.

Let's hope we can move forward. I can deal with a few down votes myself but find it unacceptable that innocent people are unfairly punished simply for sharing their opinions.

Regards, Melda
Miandra - Thanks for your response.

I have to tell you that I wasn't looking for extra karma points when I posted my comments, it went deeper than that, but thank you very much.

Hello RSAChick,

I couldn't have said it better myself.

You have so many valid points in your comment on how to vote. It makes perfect sense.

...and yes, we don't know the real person behind the ID.

I'm sure Martin would know who votes for whom and how they vote. (I don't know, just always thought that) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Thanks for your wisdom.
๐Ÿ˜˜ โค ๐Ÿ˜˜
Thanks, RC!

Feel free to provide Biblio-to-colloquial English subtitles as you see fit... ๐Ÿ˜†

RSAChick in His Name Is Vic
None of what I'm about to say is profound or anything new, but I hope it helps.

Up-voting until your votes are depleted is a meaningless exercise.
The purpose of the voting, for me, is to show your support to comments you agree with or like, down-vote the uglies and scroll past the ones that leave you on the fence.
In a perfect world you would then be able to gauge the quality of a comment by looking at the number of points awarded so far, but alas, everything is subjective!

It should not be anonymous. It gives these cowards who may or may not be in cahoots the power to bully people online. They get the desired reactions and outrage and therefore happily continue on their destructive course without revealing their identity.

I think that is also the danger with forums like these (well, any social media). You can decide how much you reveal about your 'real life'. For example, I have only revealed my home country - It could be a complete fabrication.

I would suggest that users here should realise that these people on YGS are just as much your "real friends" as they are your "real enemies". Unless you have had personal interactions with any of the members here, I would advise you to ignore any voting or comments from users of this site, however difficult it may be. You are not dealing with people face to face. They don't care about you or what is fair. They are in a world where they feel they have some control.

So...ignore, ignore, ignore!

And enjoy the meaningful discussions where you do encounter them!
Biblio, it was beautiful to read about your own journey of belonging and "living this country and its landscape".

I have such a yearning to feel this same way about my country of birth and certainly think it is possible in beautiful South Africa. It is something that I would like to explore this year.

Thank you for your kind and genuine advice to expat. It has given me some food for thought.
Sleeping-with-steve in His Name Is Vic
Hello Melda,

I just did as many up votes on this thread as I can.

I've done my limit for the day and have been told to vote for someone else after voting you up several times.

Hope that makes it better.

Best wishes.

Thanks for reading and offering a new insight. I am not very familiar with lucid dreaming, but I am going to look it up. As far as the sp instinct, well I had so for so many years that I just had to learn to somehow manage it.
Thanks again for taking the time to respond, you were very helpful
countrybamagirl5 in Ignis Fatuus (ghost Lights)
Really loved this story very interesting & fascinating. I truly believe that things like this really do happen.
Ghosts and the supernatural are very real.
countrybamagirl5 in Watchers "fallen Angel's"
Still fascinated by the story even after reading it again. You need to continue to write about more experiences that you have
lady-glow That's a good point I actually didn't think of that. I don't know, she could be.
To all who read: Perhaps I didn't explain myself sufficiently.

Within two days of receiving a response from year_long_summer and my response to her, she had 3 karma votes and all were removed, plus my karma points went down by ten.

This person/duo is very crafty. They go back to my early stories, which I have checked, and I've found down votes where they are inappropriate, plus my comments on other member's submissions.

I know everybody says that your positive response is enough and the karma points mean nothing. I can agree but when people go out of their way to remove your karma votes it becomes very personal. One person cannot remove all those votes in a matter of two to three days, which is why I say there are probably two in cahoots. I have my ideas on that but won't go so far as to name.

This is all I have to say on the matter but I know that others have been unfairly targeted as well.

Regards, Melda
Unknown - As lady-glow said, it could be an item of furniture but then again it might not be.

Whatever it is could very likely be sent on its way by a blessing or cleansing. There are numerous methods which you could make use of, depending on your belief system, but take a look at Rook's method

You could of course get rid of the offending piece of furniture if that is what you think is causing your problem. If you do decide to do so, please dispose of it permanently and don't visit it on any other unsuspecting person.

Regards, Melda
To the malicious commentor/s.

I thought at first not to respond to you but I do feel that you ought to have a good look at yourselves. Yes, I do believe that at least two of you are in cahoots and have decided to to be nasty in the extreme and target a few members on this forum. I am one of them but I am not alone. You have done this to a number of highly respected members of this site.

I am not counting myself as one of the favourite posters but obviously I have offended you at some stage. Why not send me an e-mail and tell me all about it? Why not tell the other members who you feel have offended you in some or other way?

Please bear in mind that if the experiences you have submitted are untrue or, to most of us unbelievable, you will receive negative feedback.

In fact I feel rather sorry for you because it would seem that you have no other object in life but negativity towards your fellow human being. That is rather sad. Perhaps you need therapy to cope with that negativity. Other outside interests perhaps? It would seem that YGS is not a good place for you.

Why down vote a new member just because she likes my stories? That is her opinion. She doesn't deserve to be punished for it.

I am of course open to contradiction but this is how I see it.

Regards, Melda
I think I understand what you're getting at, Biblio. I'll let my hubris out and see if I can simplify your idea?

Having been born in England, as was our OP expathistorical, you know the land: its obvious to anyone who is not blind features, plus all those little details. One hill is like any other hill, yet it also has its own features: nooks, crannies, very tiny undulations that change how the wind and the water, and life, flows on this hill as opposed to that one.

When you moved to a new place, you took some time to feel, sense, and learn how its geography is, and how this energy flows. So, while you may not be as 'home' here in the US as in England, you can still 'be' present in it.

I lived in Ohio for a while; a state very different from the place I call home, Pennsylvania, though New York State is my home. I don't want to be in NY; did not want to be in Ohio, but that was my location at the time, so I realized had better exist there. Now that I have moved out of Ohio, I need to exist where I am.
Dear Smoki,

I've visited many Edwardian buildings in the Dakotas with my last job (architectural- nothing to do with paranormal things) and have observed that the knobs of buildings upwards of 80 years old can take quite a bit of an effort to turn. I live in such a house myself and even have one knob which doesn't always turn when I want it to do so. It seems that the older door and window hardware gets, the more cantankerous it becomes. So I too suggest you dash any possibility that it could have turned by natural phenomena, particularly not in an old house.

Something invisible may have come through that door during your sleepover but since you were awake, chosen to leave again. Many entities prefer visiting people when they are asleep and more vulnerable. You can be grateful to have been awake.
