Val, I appreciate your explanation of ghosts vs spirits, I had no idea. Count me as one who has not read much non-fiction about the paranormal. I'm pacing myself haha.

Plaza, your ernest account offers much to think about, and I appreciate your reply. Like you, I've had experiences. Most were initially because I've just lost a lot of people I love and over the years have connected dots about things that have happened. As I've become a real believer in the paranormal/supernatural (still not quite sure what to call it) in the last 5-6 years, I find myself continually noticing things (I live in a very historic and haunted location where much Civil War activity took place). Just last night, sitting at my daughter's high school soccer game, there was this mist that kept moving around the stadium... Yes, it had rained earlier, so there's a possible explanation for the mist, but it was the way in which it moved around that caught my eye. The stadium less than 1/4 mile from one of the bloodiest battles of the war... I took video and still photos (which I'm about to go analyze) but I can probably tell you right now that I'll see soldiers in the mist. Once you start to see, you can't really unsee. But I'm cautious. Which is part of the reason for my question. I think in death, like in life, we're less afraid if we know people's stories. And I do think ghosts are all about having their stories known. Thanks much for telling yours! And SELL your dad's house, start over and don't feel too bad. You deserve all good things.
Val,
Thanks for the comments. So if I have this right, everything that's happened to me must of been by spirits and not ghosts. I have never seen a ghost (thank god), but if that's the case then spirits are the ones that can move things, talk, walk, laugh & attack you, on top of going through one's body to cause the goosebumps or touching you, but also communicate with a medium. If all that is so, it must mean the are two types of spirits then. The good ones like Lisa and the not so nice ones like at my dads who grabbed my hair. I mean, why would a spirit pick on a child like I was back then. Why all the negativity at my dads, what could I have of done to upset this entity so much that it's resorted to violence and scared the crap out of me from before I could remember. That's just bad in my opinion.
I wouldn't mind, but it must be someone who is not family. I was maybe 13 when my grandad died who was the first relation to die and why only pick on me.
Like I replied, it definitely effected my life from a very young age. Without the attack, I might not of been as bad as I am, but who knows. There's a reason why I hated going to bed from even before I remember with the screaming mum said I did every night when it was bedtime.

I've been trying to think since I replied to Miss Ramsey, why wasn't I affected with Lisa. Was it due to her not being a dark entity or just the way the whole process happened. Even now at 1-10am I'm typing this out and I'm thinking back why didn't I get spooked when I was first spoken to and told to visit a spiritualist church. I know when I didn't get spoken to that first time I went, I did think it was my imagination, despite not knowing about a spiritualist church. But the instant I got outside the church after that first time, the voice did say go again, you have to go again. I can still recall it some 30 years later. But all that got turned on it's head when the second visit and the medium broke off her introduction to tell me about this girl who was bending the medium's ear. Then I knew the voice was real enough.
I'm still confused as to why I wasn't afraid. Then again, I had seen mum doing this SB and she never told me anything bad had happened to her. I'm sure it's all related some how. The thing at dads I was always aware I was being watched, so that's a dark feeling. Compared to getting all emotional when I read about Lisa dying at just 18 and I did genuinely feel so bad for her. But without a shadow of a doubt, if Lisa started moving things or giving off negative energy at some point which did cross my mind, kind of get me groomed in a way under her spell before bad things started, I would of instantly shut up shop. It's hard because I'm trying to remember if at any point at the beginning apart from what I mentioned, if I did at all get afraid at any point.
It all happened so casual though. I told mum about this poor girl, mum suggested I do the SB to try and make contact. When I did do it, I wrote, I thought that was journey's end. So I had no idea what came next and when I did hear this voice, I told mum and mum didn't freak out and say you should not be hearing voices, she told me the opposite and I should go to this church. After that I guess I didn't have to be afraid especially when I was told the second visit to the church. I never watched a medium start the way she did when she broke off her introduction to speak to it before she was ready to. I was told good things so again, maybe that settled me down some more.
Ok, I've done it again. Waffled on. Thanks again Val.

Hi Plaza, in your comment you wondered if there's a difference between ghosts and spirits. Although we use the words interchangeably, there is a difference. Ghosts, according to Hans Holzer, professor of parapsychology and writer of 119 books on the subject, are similar to psychotic human beings, incapable of reasoning for themselves. They're tied to the location of their death, usually a sudden or tragic one, and they often don't realize that they are dead. In most cases, they have "unfinished business" as the deceased person does not accept the way in which they died.
Interestingly enough, unfinished business can be as innocent as a person being attached so strongly to their home that they cannot leave it behind and pass over. At the other end of the spectrum unfinished business can take the form of dark energy when a person's death is extremely violent and unexpected.

A spirit, however is thought to be a person's 'soul' that no longer has a body to reside in. They are free to move from one dimension to another and can return to us at free will. They're often referred to as an 'intelligent' haunting. Just like the living spirits can be good or bad.
I hope that helps some?
Val
Hey Miss Ramsey
First of all, many thanks for taking the time to read and reply. In response to your comment, I've never thought of it like that before. Thinking back, the Lisa story was in between my dads house experiences and the laughing child at the pub, but I've never thought about why the spirit experience in full never scared me.
I had to laugh with your Sheetless of a ghost comment. I had actually wrote shiatless & shiat scared, but hopefully this reply doesn't change those words into the same words that you read above. Trust me, it wasn't me writing shiatless, I thought it was changed automatically to avoid using the (s h I t) word.
But getting back to your point. I guess it's a very valid point and I don't think I know the reason why. Maybe it's something to do with mum doing the SB from time to time in the past and I would walk in on her doing it, so maybe I didn't fear spirits as much. Or the way the whole Lisa think happened especially with me feeling so emotional about her story in the newspaper and it was still affecting me days later, so it was a different kind of experience. I know when I decided to do the SB myself, I had put it off so many times before I actually did it because I was genuinely scared stiff, but I knew I needed to do it. Everything after seemed just to fit into place. The random goosebumps so many times afterwards or this warm fuzzy feeling that kept happening. I also know some of it could of been caused naturally especially after the SB experience, but I also knew, it was happening way more times than could be natural and at times when I wasn't thinking of something like what I had done, but like eating my dinner talking about whatever. It was so random and why it's included. If I thought it could be something easily debunked trust me, it would not be included. I'm not here for any prize or notaries, I'm just sharing what happened which I can not debunk. I wish I could, I wish I could debunk the whole 9 yards. That way, I would not have to sell my dads house when he's no longer with us and I can move in and live rent free. But the fear of my dads house is something else. Maybe that can be debunked due to a child experiencing something so frightening that he's scarred for life and no matter what he's told, it's always going to be negative. Maybe if something negative happened at the start of the Lisa story it would of turned out totally different, I don't know because it happened the way it's written and at no point did I fear her apart from when she asked if I would like to experience something. I did say, I thought she was going to show herself and despite everything up to that point being nothing but good vibes, I was shiat scared that she was going to show herself because that's what I fear the most and still do at 54 years old.
The little girl laughing in the pub, would I handle it a bit better now, maybe but I'm not 100%. I would not know until that time came. But when I visit my special needs brother and sleep in mums bed, I still get spooked and have to turn the light on for the rest of the night and that's my own mum. It's just how I am wired, but I don't know why Lisa never freaked me out apart from that first SB session and thinking she was going to show herself and remember, that's after being in contact with her for 12 months. So there must be a difference between a ghost and a spirit, in my mind anyway. But like I keep saying, I am no expert, I have never read about or studied anything to do with the afterlife, the above is everything that's happened to me that I can not debunk.
Hearing a voice in my head, like I say, I thought I was going potty, a voice talking to me. I recall an answer on Quora saying I was a borderline schizophrenic hearing voices in my head. Thankfully, that voice didn't tell me to kill Joe Bloggs or my family like you read about in the news. No, this voice told me to visit a spiritualist church, so I was spared having to kill people... I should not joke about that sorry, people might actually have lost loved ones via a person like that, but I at least now understand why these people carry out these crimes and say they where told to by the voices. Jeepers, how did I get on to this subject.
I would love an explanation on how I was told so much information at my first contact with a medium. I've watched TV programmes about how they 'fish' for answers, but that wasn't the case with me, bang bang bang all on the money. I thought my mum must of phoned the church because that was the only way I thought she knew what she knew which is why my mate on the motorcycle knocked me for ten because mum didn't know about Martin because we still lived in the other town and we became friends after a Christmas party for kids at the club where did would drink sometimes. Imagine my horror when I asked someone for the phone number of the church a short time after getting that first lot of messages, when I was told they didn't have a phone. I've tried to debunk the lot and I can't. If I read about Lisa from someone else, I'd say it can't possibly be true, how can it be. The only reason I know it is, is because I experienced the lot myself, no one else. I thought, after that final thing with Lisa, firstly, what the hell was that and who in the right mind is going to believe that. Hence the silence for over 25yrs. But to then not only be told what it was, but to read it in a book which described it on the nose, that just blew my mind and that's the power of the internet, which we didn't have in the early 1990's. It's probably happened to thousands of people before and after my episode, I've just never looked into it, I've no need because I know what it felt like and would give almost anything to experience it again. I will stop at my life and / or soul though.

Now look what you made me do, waffle on like I do do. Hopefully somewhere in all that is the answer to your question. You might come back and say there's no difference between a ghost and a spirit. Unfortunately, for me, I have had entirely two unique experiences and they will always be different to me. If Lisa did show herself has a ghost, it would of had the exact same reaction as to my dads and the little girl and that would of been the end, no more conversation and probably moved out of mums to. Although Lisa might of followed me. Thankfully and hopefully she remembered or knew never to make a noise or move objects (on her own without me touching a glass) but more importantly, shiat the life out of me by being a ghost at any time during my time with her.

Reading the first paragraph on preview, it's seems you can't write sh it after all, it's been automatically changed to what you read in my story, but it wasn't me I promise 😕

MrsRamsay (guest) in An Unexpected Tug In The Night
To Manafon's comments, it's interesting that many of us who've had some kind of experience do not automatically freak out and flee. I think we've been conditioned by movies in our generation, to consider any kind of paranormal experience as "terrifying."

Not saying some experiences aren't terrifying, and I am cautious about things I don't understand. But sometimes, especially if the phenom experienced is related to someone we knew in life, it's way more intriguing than scary.
Hi Juan_Doooh,

I find your story quite relatable, and as others have mentioned here, it's very interesting that your father witnessed both incidents too!
From what I've experienced, and from what information I've read on the subjects of doppelgangers and time anomalies, it's not uncommon for people to experience other types of paranormal or unexplained phenomena throughout their lives. Perhaps both of your parents have precognitive abilities? Maybe you have inherited some of their gifts - have you considered that it may run in your family?

Keeping a personal journal might not be a bad idea; it can help you compare and validate any patterns you might see arise from these experiences you've had.

Good Luck!
MrsRamsay (guest) in This Is My Life!
Hi Plaza,
It's interesting to me that you are so afraid of ghosts, yet your experience with Lisa -- a ghost with a name -- is completely opposite of that.

Can you figure out why or have you pondered that before? I think if I was you, I'd be a lot less afraid of some footsteps or a ghost child laugh, and scared SHEETLESS of a ghost that could talk inside my head and get me to do things like lie down on a couch (and then proceed to affect my bodily sensations like a "drug"). I'd tell you to be careful, but as you say it's been years. Crazy stories, thanks for taking the time to share them.
MrsRamsay (guest) in Illinois Lake House Haunting
Wow,that's a pretty interesting date. Some people get lucky like that and some people just get a dinner at Applebees!:) Really great story.
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in This Is My Life!
Hello again Plaza, no worries on the word count, honestly, I feel your story needed to be told just the way you told it, length and all. It was very good. I get it, I can be rather lengthy in my stories and replies as well, in fact the story I had posted on this site I actually broke into 2 parts, you're welcome to read it if you want. You can find them by clicking on my name in this reply, which will take you to my profile. The House on North Street is the title and its in 2 parts.

As far as the slippers/glasses, it may not have been done by anyone you knew. You're right, the fact that it only happened those few times is a strange, usually it happens more often than that. However I have read accounts where it only happens a couple of times to people. The situation however is much the same, the articles taken are usually pretty important, like car keys just before someone needs to leave the house for something important or in your case the glasses which you especially needed to drive. Taking such valuable or needed items obviously is done to get the person's attention, but why? Possibly because it cannot be ignored. It is however very frustrating and irritating nonetheless. It is a mystery and it may never be solved but at least it only happened those few times, if it was a regular occurrence that would be a problem for sure!

Good to hear from you again my friend, take care and enjoy the site, there's a lot on here, a whole library of fascinating accounts!
SalixArbuscula,

From a sceptic's point of view (and I am a sceptic), your research was quite impressive. The origins of my scepticism lie in my training as a telecommunications technician, so I was surprised to read about this technical "hitch" in the field of smartphone photography. I've still got a few questions on the artifact showing up in the shadow but I'll do some research off line.

For me, looking at the "big picture" (pardon the pun), still tends to lead me in a different direction. As Jubeele has mentioned, this was my second visit to the Q Station and the second time that my "gut feelings" overrode all my logical arguments. In both instances, the source of my feelings of disquiet and sadness was the shower block interior.

The first time, I left the site feeling depressed, yet the recent visit put me in a more introspective mood, taking in the whole experience.

When we got home and downloaded the images, I laughed as somebody would when they see through a magician's trick. I have been in this mood before when I was sure somebody was looking after me.

Anyway, that's my take on our day out - good food, ripper views and a pleasant surprise ending.

Oh yeah, one bit of advice for fellow sceptics - "If your gut tells you there's something wrong, there probably is".

Take Care & Stay Safe
Thanks Dream Bird for your praise, it's appreciated.

Same to you Lost Voyage. In response to why I hear nothing now, I had never thought about they have all past over. I don't know why I didn't think about this but it makes perfect sense and certainly fits in with why I don't sense anything any longer. Lisa absolutely, she is probably the reason why I'm still here alive. The fact I've been with my current partner over 20 years does fit why Lisa may of past over. Thinking back, I don't think there was anything else we could of done. We did the communication, she give me the messages, we moved on from having to attend a church and maybe that was her gift to me towards the end with that experience we shared which even right this moment makes me well up with emotion due to what we shared and how powerful it was. I know it was special but back then I didn't want to share that experience with anyone because I didn't think anyone would either believe me or think I was losing the plot. It was only 25 years later when I shared it eventually that others had said they to had experienced the same thing. I knew then it would be accepted and I would not be thought of as some crackpot with a screw loose.
The same thing when I lost mum in 2012. I have never felt her part from the very start when she died. But that makes more sense because I did promise her that if anything happened to her, I would step up and make sure John my half brother with special needs who mum looked after, would be ok and I still do that to this day, along with my younger brother who I spoke about in my original post. So mum would absolutely know I kept my promise and she crossed over. The same with my Gran who was my rock, I have never felt her. She so wanted not to be here though at the end and I could see it. Covid19 took Gran right at the start of the pandemic and at long last she would be reunited with her first love who she lost some 26 years ago.

Re the slippers and glasses. Having watched sixth sense so many times, I knew spirits could take things. The thing that gets me is, apart from the slipper and then the glasses there's been nothing at all in 18 years of living here. This is the only thing I have a problem with. Why just those two incidents and when the glasses went missing, I actually called out and explained why I needed those glasses. I was about to make the 4 hr drive to spend some time with John and I needed the glasses to drive. So I knew it wasn't mum and despite asking for their return, they didn't show up and I had to drive with no glasses which was not great. When wifey found them either the next day or two days later I can't recall which, I knew they'd been taken but by who. I never did find out or have a clue who it was. Unless of course they did somehow fly across the room and land under a radiator by accident, but that's why I don't really count the glasses the same has the slipper because there's a very small percentage that I could of flicked them when I went to put my jumper on, despite it being almost impossible to replicate.
There may be other times things have disappeared, but me and wifey are just so stupid we don't realise something is missing. That could account for it.
I have now read some of the other stories on this site and yes, I think I may of overdone it with the word count... But seriously, like I explained, I just told it exactly how it was, nothing exaggerated and I'm not after anything in return, so I have zero reasons to make it stand out or better than it was. Trust me, I don't go around posting any thing everywhere. I do reply in detail sometimes in answering a post on Quora for instance. I have led a varied life with gambling, poker playing and a 41 year slot machine addiction which I thankfully kicked 3 years next month, so I give my feedback on those subjects and Crypto is now part of my life, on top of my disability that I suffered while having a routine back op in 2009 that left me living in Chronic Back Pain ever since. Also my upbringing and relationships plus of course various sections of my original post but never all together. Finally, it's through a lot of dedication from my partner who's helped me with my reading and writing. I missed a lot of school growing up with no cash for bus fares to send me to school and it's been a long slog to get it where it is today. I know it's not perfect, but from where it was to now, like I said, it's a million miles different. Helped of course with auto spell & correct. So given I have a lot of time every single day, I can get carried away once I start, just like this reply... But thanks you again for your very kind words. I have never been complemented on my writing, ever. Which is why I thank each reply I get.
Thanks for the warm welcome to, I don't have friends these days due to the Chronic Pain and always being heavily medicated. But it seems I might like it here and with a good set of people. Yes, it does help that we know of the other side and so we will find it easier to get on together. I am very open and honest and if I think something that I've experienced can be debunked, I will suggest just that, but also open to hear from others who are way more experienced and braver than I will ever be...

Plaza
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in This Is My Life!
Hello Plaza, great story, very detailed and rather captivating. I have to say, I've been reading stories on here for some time and that is the longest recount I have ever come across.

You have a gift, those that have passed on know it, and they will reach out when they can. You somehow connected to this Lisa, in merely reading that article about her and she knew you could sense her. Leaving life the way she did, she probably had unfinished business. I would venture a guess that the reason you can't communicate with her now as that somewhere along the way she completely crossed over to the other side and went back 'home' so to speak. I too have has experiences like this, but much lighter than yours and not everyone it's occurred with is dead, some are very much alive. It could be because of the connection you established that Lisa was able to move on eventually.

I know you've tried to debunk the slipper and glasses incidents, and you were very thorough, even in stretching the realm of reality behind these incidents. However I say quite simply, a ghost/spirit moved and hid them. You stated that you really haven't read anything on this site, but if you did, you would find this is a common occurrence, in the paranormal realm that is. In many cases, all a person has to do is ask the offending ghost to return the item and it reappears later in either the same spot it disappeared from or in another that's just been searched or is in plain site. I think ghosts do this to get our attention, to say "Hey I'm here, pay attention to me".

You've shared some intriguing accounts, and told in a very matter of fact way, it's quite refreshing. There is nothing in your experiences that leads me to question their validity.

I appreciate you sharing with this community, you have friends here. It's easier to share with people who have had bizarre incidents in their lives and yet cannot explain them. For many we have more open minds, but still with a healthy dose of skepticism. Take care and good luck!
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Frightening Experience At Night
Hello SashaLA, interesting story, thanks for sharing. From what I'm understanding from your encounter, you felt as if someone was actually physically restraining you and you were able to move and struggle against your 'captor'

If it was a case of sleep paralysis, you wouldn't have been able to move at all. You would have been wide awake, and your mind would have been active, and although you will your body to move, it doesn't. People in those situations, strain a good deal to even move a finger, though usually when they do, it breaks the paralysis and the 'entity' disappears. Also the mind is usually not blocked from any thoughts or prayers in most cases of sleep paralysis, the person is just usually so frightened, they don't think to pray for help for a bit, when they do, it again usually breaks the episode.

I would guess from your additional experience with the footsteps and unless I misunderstood the struggle with the entity/shadow, you had a 'visitor' with some questionable intentions.

You may try some additional prayers/blessings and protective measures according to your beliefs to ensure you don't have any repeat occurrences and are able to get a good nights sleep as well! Good Luck!
Hi Rajine, thanks for reading my story. I really do hope they are together and at peace. He had a pretty tragic life all around. He was the first person I know that was taken off his reservation and placed in an Indian boarding school. There was a sad ending to what seem like a very sad life. I really do hope he has found peace.

Hi Manafon1, thanks for your comments on my story. That is a very interesting theory regarding unconscious telepathic interaction. Maybe that's why I didn't going screaming out of the room. I was most likely drained. 😊

-DB
Hi DreamBird

It's quite a tragic story and maybe they are together again on the other side, what you experienced would have sent me running right out of there.
Hi DreamBird--Welcome to YGS! I found your account compelling. I was particularly interested in how you acknowledged the presence and fell back asleep instead of running in terror from the room. I had a very intense interaction with what I believe to have been the spirit of my mother and afterward fell into the most restful sleep I've had in years. One theory suggests that an unconscious telepathic interaction with a spirit can drain a person of energy. It seems possible that's what happened in your case. I believe this telepathic link is also what sometimes keeps a person's consciousness otherwise engaged so that they don't panic while the incident is unfolding.

Thanks for sharing your story--so sorry that your ex-boyfriend died in a motorcycle accident. Hopefully, as you suggest, he has been reunited with his wife.
BitterSweet78801 in My Sister's "lookalike"
Wow, my sister had a similar experience too. I wrote about it called "my twin". My sister swore up and down that she saw someone walk in from the back door, straight into the restroom. The "thing" was motionless, and not interacting with her either. She followed "it" into the restroom. She said it looked just like me.

Thanks for sharing your story. Hoping to never go through that ever again.
DreamBird in This Is My Life!
Thanks for sharing your story. I couldn't stop reading it. It was very very good!

-DB
[at] lady-glow the room was definitely a different vibe than during the séance. Also we grew up in quite a haunted city so we actually knew how to hold a séance, it didn't feel like it was the same spirit, because the one during the séance had a more positive-neutral energy, while the one in the room had a darker energy. And yes, we are sure the red marks were left by the touch, not bugs, we used a repellant spray and it was about the size of Hand lol. We don't have any insects that would leave such big marks
It's been about four years since that happened I think?
Also as for the needing help I just clicked wrong by accident lol, however my friend and I do see shadow figures regularly but that is probably because of the area we live in, we've seen everything from ancient Roman soldier's ghosts to the legend of the devil throwing a brick from the church (Because there is a pretty big red brick from the church lying about 300 meters away and no one dares to touch it).
Thank you for your comment by the way!

Hi!
I live in Arizona. I'd be curious to know where you were when this happened. Thanks for sharing your story.

Hello, Jubeele.

That sounds like a fascinating mix of energies for one location! But as I'm no expert on such things by any means, I'll leave it at that. I will, however, offer a thought on your image. It is striking, and definitely seems odd. I did a little googling on the technical side of thigs, and I came across an interesting article that was written about similar artifacts people had in their pictures of the highly-visible eclipse back in 2017, which were explained as lens flare.

Https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/22/16184976/solar-eclipse-photography-lens-flare-crescent-artifacts-iphone

Yes, this article focuses on a different phone brand than the one you have. I also read in my googling that iphones can have some issues with ghosting, which is a different artifact-causing camera malfunction that is not relevant to your image, but may be the cause of some of the extra spots in the pictures in the article. However, I still find several of the artifacts in the pictures in the article to be strikingly similar to the one you captured, in some cases right down to the electric blue color. With all due respect to the rest of your experience, I think (I'm not an expert, so I make no claim stronger than that) the image you captured could quite possibly be explained as a nifty case of lens flare.
Also I'm interested [at] lady_glow to know why of all things a toothbrush is good protection against supernatural entities? What is the symbolism behind it, I've read the story on the link you provided but I couldn't find anything.
Hi whyismynametrash

That's quite a name lol.
But on a serious note why would you and your friends perform a seance when your'll "felt something was off in the place", that's just asking for unwanted trouble, sometimes it's good to just leave well enough alone.
Whatever it was probably is a resident entity or it just didn't go away once your'll finished your seance session, if I were you I'd research the history of the place or would have spoken to someone who knows about it.
Rajine in Phantom Sedan
Hi FC_DUB

This is a interesting incident that you experienced and it would be great if any of the commentors could shed some light on this particular part of highway, I'm hoping that someone knows the place you talking about, it just has me asking more questions.
Welcome to YGS.

According to one story published on this site some time ago, throwing a toothbrush at it is a very effective form of protection against supernatural entities.

Since you and your friend "tend to pick up on energies at lot more than most people", what kind of vibe did you pick in the room? Did it make you feel the same way as during the seance?
Are you sure that the touches and the red marks were not made by bugs?

In my opinion, IF there was something attached to the place, it possibly was doing it's regular routine in the room, or, perhaps, the seance opened a door to something and now it is haunting anyone else staying in the room.

One should think about the consequences of our actions and act responsibly.

How long has it been since this happened? Why do you need help? Have the red eyes and shadow followed you or your friends?

I hope you have overcome the trauma of that night.

Here's the link to the story I mentioned above:

Thanks for sharing.
Hi Lost Voyage

Interesting to learn that prayers for protection are associated with Archangel Michael. For my part, I feel blessed to have attracted good spirits and positive energies. I've had my share of spooky moments in the past, but I find the atrocities that humans can inflict on each other far more horrific.

A medium friend said that she senses a lot of energy around me, but they are mostly loving presences of family who have passed, checking in on us in a fleeting visiting. I try to acknowledge the spirits if I sense them. Just a polite "hello", "goodnight", "please behave", or "play nice".

You've been seeing blue orbs too? That's fascinating. I hope you will be able to share that with us in more detail someday. Thanks for coming by and I'm glad you enjoyed my account.
Thank you Giffy.
To be honest, I have not read anything on here and this was the first time I have shared my entire life of the unexplained shall we say. So I didn't know if it was long, short or boringly long. I just put it all together and I was surprised at the end when I looked at the word count. It's definitely the longest thing I've wrote about.
I had to put myself and my voice into it so you get how much I was shiat scared and I still am of my dads house but why I was so afraid. I literally told it exactly how it was with nothing exaggerated or played up and even my end comments are true about me still trying to debunk any of it. But I know, a non believer will still not be swayed because it wasn't them. That's why the incident with the little girl stands out so much. I could of been my dad and he'd never be able to debunk what he heard if it was him. But I can only put so much info into how long I spent in that pub beforehand, where when read it reads like I'd only been upstairs a few times.
I did leave something out which once I knew about the little girl, made my skin crawl. But I've actually slept in Dots bed when she and her husband where away on holiday. Let's just say, I wasn't on my own for half of that night and if that little girl was watching, well who knows, maybe that's why she was laughing... I'm sure you can work it out and that was the first time after that I had been on my own. Who knows, I know I don't, but it freaked me out enough to quit that same day and end the 3 year relationship with my girlfriend. Again, who knows, maybe that's why she laughed, knowing I'd not return and would cause me and my girlfriend to split up. After all, it wasn't the girlfriend who I shared Dots bed with for half the night. Maybe it's her way of payback despite being a little girl!

That's how I write, I just think things while I reminisce and put it down while I recall before I forget and maybe lost forever.

Again, thanks for your kind word, it's appreciated.

Plaza
Thanks Lady-glow,

I would like to think it was sleep paralysis... Have read about it, but have a feeling there's more to it.

Don't know of any events as such, we had heard stories of people dying, workers basically, when the place was being built... Its an apartment complex... So don't know how much to make of that...

No one from the family passed away, at least not that I know of until now. Have asked my family...

Regarding the peeping tom-:) well, opposite my window is an open, marshy piece of land... And my place is on the mezzanine floor, the windows are quite high, so the chances of someone peeping is ruled out...

We do actually bless our house every year... But in spite of that we have events happening from time to time...
Hi Rajine,

I have had different kinds of experiences in the past, but something to this effect, was the first time.

And yes, I did tell my family about this. My brother stays there and he says he has experienced someone or something jumping on the bed from time to time... And he feels a presence sometimes... My mother has experienced as if someone sitting on her chest and choking her, and when she's woken up after the ordeal has been over, she would have marks on her body or pain in the throat for several days...
If I were to guess I'd say that it could be a passing entity, since you say that this was the first time you experienced this. This was back in the days when she used to live in that house of ours. She doesn't stay there now.
Dear Plaza,

I really enjoyed this whirlwind supernatural memoir. You put so much of yourself and your voice into this account. It's definitely the longest I've read on this site and the first that prompted me to comment, just to say how much I appreciated it.
Welcome to YGS SashaLA,

I agree with lady-glow in that sleep paralysis can be a threshold to the spirit realm. While I have not experienced something like that myself, I have read about those situations.

It might be interesting to look into the history of the house too.

Thanks for sharing.
Thanks to you both for your replies. To be honest, I did not know what I experienced throughout my life was normal or not. Some peeps have experiences but pre internet so you never really knew about what others had seen or heard.
That experience I had with Lisa, I kept totally silent for 25 years How do you begin to tell someone what happened like that. The same with pretty much all of what happened. You just didn't share it back then for fear of being looked at like some loony.

The pub function room is the one that stands out. I could of been anyone, even my dad, who doesn't believe in anything. How can you not believe after hearing what I heard even as non believers. They do say, you need to have an experience yourself to be converted. It's funny, I drove past the pub not so long back after visiting family. It's now private flats and I was tempted to knock on some doors and ask about the laughing. But who knows, Dot & Pete are no longer with us and I wouldn't be surprised if they are some how connected with the converted pub. The pub Dot had where I first met them, she lost her husband and he'd been seen after he died. Someone would talk to this guy on a stool, turn round and they'd be gone. Thankfully, I have never seen a ghost, or not knowingly seen one.

That sensitivity to the other side is definitely a lot less than it was. Like I explained, it's been years since I think I felt something or heard any communication.

Thanks again, it's appreciated.

Stay Safe y'all
Hello! I have been out there a few times, but the incident in 2010 was my only encounter. I feel like some occurrences are more common than others.
GingerRead in He Turned Into Light
Sad but true. I don't think I can tell you how many accidents I've seen outside my window. Especially in winter! People drive too way too fast.
Hi Plaza

I feel that you are sensitive to supernatural entities that is why you always experience them, from your long narrative it just proves it, I have to agree with [at] Kindly_refrain it definitely makes for an interesting read.
Hi GingerRead

I find it very a sad story regarding the guy who lost his life and you are right, he won't be able to move on and find peace.
Hi SashaLA

If I were to guess I'd say that it could be a passing entity, since you say that this was the first time you experienced this.

But I also feel that you should speak to your family members and find out if they experienced anything similar.
Kindly_refrain in This Is My Life!
Plaza, that is the longest story I believe I have read on this website but it was thoroughly engrossing.

Many of your experiences are of types I have never heard of.

The only thing I have experienced that is similar to any of your occurrences is "the missing item that turns up later" event.

Thanks for writing it all down, much appreciated.
Hi Zander, that certainly was an odd credit course, as others have mentioned, but interesting nonetheless.

I was witness to and somewhat of a participant in a table tipping session a few years ago. If you are interested you can read my story on this site at the link below. There are also two follow up stories if you go to my stories.

Kindly_refrain in Port Perry's Ghost Road
Hello GingerRead, I sometimes drive through Port Perry when I am avoiding the 400 series highways as I head to my son's house in eastern Ontario, from the London area.

I will have to go to The Jester's Court next time I am there.

Where is the infamous road and what is the best time (I assume after dark) and location on the road to look for the phenomenon?

Have you been there on other occasions with no appearance of the light or is it a regular occurrence for those who wait?
I'd rather be in that class than trying to understand calculus. Seriously dude, were you attending Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry? 😜 😁 😢
Welcome to YGS.

It's possible that what you experienced was only an episode of sleep paralysis, although it is believed that, in some cases, this can be a threshold to the spirit realm.

Are you aware if any violent event has happened close to the house? Do you know if a family member or friend passed away around that day?
Perhaps someone was trying to get your attention and didn't know of a better way to do it.

As for the steps by the window... I hope it wasn't a peeping Tom trying his luck at watching you that night.

Perhaps you could try blessing your home to prevent any similar events in the future.

Thanks for sharing.
He went from heedlessly to headlessly in the blink of an eye...

I used to watch Creepy Canada, it was a great show.

Thanks for sharing.
Uh...really?

Are you talking about the same "gifted students" like in the following article?:

Https://gifted.msu.edu/about/226/what-does-being-gifted-really-mean

Which defines gifted students like "children or youth, means students, children or youth who give evidence of high achievement capability in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership capacity, or in specific academic fields, and who need services or activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to fully develop those capabilities." (Marland, 1971)

There's no mention of any kind of sensitivity or paranormal abilities (gifts?)

No offense intended but, I find it odd that any school would include "the psychic sciences!" within their program... Lucky you for attending a school that would teach something that usually would be considered as charlatanerie.

Thanks for sharing.
Nobody's "imagination" works like that, not even children's. Where the hell does the idea that it does come from?

Rather it'd have to be a hallucination, but it'd be weird to only hallucinate once.
I'm more curious about how and why was this in middle school curriculum, especially in seventies america.
Hello Juan_Doooh, thanks for sharing your story. This could be as aforementioned a doppelganger, there's several theories regarding what these are and why they exist.

It's possible what was experienced was some sort of time slip. Since your parents say that you had notified them a half hour earlier that you were home, it seems as if what they experienced was what was about to happen. The second instance involving you again going outside yet with the white uniform is an interesting twist. Have you ever worn anything similar since this sighting? You said you hadn't prior to the incident. I ask because perhaps your father saw some form of the future like it seems he had the first time, only perhaps farther ahead.

There's documentation on people who can see events that have happened as well as those that haven't happened yet. I think many times when people have experienced incidents on civil war battlefields of actual conflicts, they're not seeing ghosts per say, but 'seeing' into the past.

It is curious your parents were the only ones to see this phenomenon and your dad in particular. I'd be more curious as to what he had encountered spiritually. You had mentioned he had some sort of spiritual warfare, perhaps what he saw was a direct result of that, someone imitating you.

In either case perhaps this will offer more perspective and it is a fascinating story! Good luck!
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Lunch At The Quarantine Station
Hello Jubeele, what a fascinating encounter and it sounds like an overall pleasant experience coming out of quarantine.

Your experience with the blue orb reminds me of things I've seen in my peripheral vision including the corner of my eye lately. What I've found and resonate with is that its the color and representation of the Archangel Michael. This is the angel that can be called upon (among many of his talents/gifts) to help others not in body cross over to the other side. Since you had invoked prayers of protection (something else he is well known for) and prayers for those left behind at the site, this seems to fit right in. When I've glimpsed it, I've always gotten a rather peaceful and relaxing feeling. This seems to dovetail with the feelings you had prior to arriving at the site as well as during most of your visit.

Most of what I've come across indicates that the angels and spirit guides as well as many others are constantly on alert, trying to help the spirits of people who have passed on but linger on this earth plane, come back home so to speak. They never give up, kind of a spiritual version of the 'no person left behind' slogan we hear in various disciplines including the military. We as humans help in that area a lot as well when we offer up those prayers in areas such as what you visited or for people who are passing or have just passed, so it's like a two pronged approach and one I think gets a lot more people back home rather than stay behind and suffer alone.

Anyways good read!
Agree with Rajine--interesting but creepy! It does sound like something was able to utilize the unclosed board as an entry point of some sort.

I am also very impressed that your daughter dispatched the rat with a softball bat! She could have a bright future in the BPRD if we really had an organization like that...

Greetings, Juan_Doooh, and welcome to YGS.

I'm quite concerned by your concluding paragraph. When you state that you "have shut myself off from those gifts years ago," do you mean that you took specific steps to "block" those gifts, or that you simply stopped using them? If the former, then spiritual blocks do need to be refreshed from time to time; if the latter, you've not done anything other than ignore the ability; the ability itself has not gone anywhere.

My initial reaction to your question is that I *don't* believe that you've "brought something back" with you from your astral journeys. You would have had far more direct interaction with such a phenomenon than your dad witnessing something on two occasions. It is entirely possible, however, that the abilities that you believe to have been shut off are still active on a subconscious level and are capable of attracting new attention (This is why I asked about what you did to shut down this aspect of your spiritual identity).

It's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that what your father saw, in each case, was something to do with *his* abilities/experiences in spiritual matters; bear in mind that he is the only one who witnessed both manifestations.

Best,
Biblio.
InTheNight in The Number Three
Seeing things just before you fall asleep and as you're waking was some kind of a dream thing, but I can't remember the name.
InTheNight in Maybe I Should Run
How have the things been going in between? Is H. Still there?
InTheNight in Ghost Head
I'm not remembering right now how exactly Fahreneits figure into Celsiuses, but thinking that something in that range in winter is especially cold sounds really insane.
About the 'swastikas' - the Nazi party placed it on their flag in 1920, but for about 5000 years before that it was a Sanskrit symbol (svastika) meaning good fortune, or 'conducive to well being'. It's also been featured in Byzantine and Christian art, and is still a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, and other Asian religious traditions.
Along with crowns, fleur de lis, interlocking circles, swastikas were used in decorative tiles in many, many buildings. So finding them on a fireplace, doesn't strike me as that odd, and is a useful tool in dating it. Any idea as to when the house was built?
Bibliothecarius in The Rocking Swing
Greetings, LuckySOB, and welcome back.

The original submission you mentioned was titled "The Thing By My Shed." Here's the link for anyone interested: https://www.yourghoststories.com/real-ghost-story.php?story=24023

While it is possible that random breezes could be responsible for *starting* the swing moving, they definitely wouldn't account for the fact that the swing abruptly stopped. Did your elderly neighbor sit in the swing when visiting you, or is this piece of furniture a more recent acquisition? As the repetition of the event was several months after the first experience, I'd suggest that it is not merely a transient spirit "that was just passing through" but something/someone with a vested interest in you or in your property.

Best,
Biblio.
Hi, Sis! 😁 Glad you and Rex are doing better.

Being able to get out and about is a good thing, especially in this still stressful time.

So I read up on your camera, and also followed the link to orb colors you shared and fascinating stuff. So could be a camera glitch, could be a spirit guide, or could be congestion in the throat chakra. 🤔

It would be very interesting to go back just to take some photos. I'm sure there's something there, but what I don't know.
I'm glad you enjoyed the account, lady-glow. Maybe Rex and I might even go on a ghost tour at the Q Station. Someday. Maybe. Some places can be overwhelming though.

The man at the Visitors' Centre told us that just the night before, a woman had to be taken back there in the middle of the ghost tour. She was in hysterics, saying that someone or something touched her in the Showers. He was on duty then and got her a bottle of water; it took her a while to calm down. I think that those who are sensitive to the spirits should take care to prepare themselves, or avoid going to such places.

That blue orb is really curious. I was fascinated to learn that there were meanings behind the different colours of orbs. Not sure if it's some trick of the light, or that I actually captured something otherworldly, but it's still nice to think that a spirit guardian was with us. 😇

Https://astronlogia.com/paranormal/blue-orb-meaning/
Hi RCRuskin

Hey Brother Brat. 😜 I think you would have enjoyed the meal, as well as the view overlooking North Harbour. Rex and I felt as if someone had given us a loving hug and made sure things went our way. After months of fear and sadness, it was a welcome respite to have a nice lunch and enjoy the sunshine. Maybe we even had an extra dining companion or two at the table with us.

It is a blessing to have a positive experience during these times. When we had our own isolation period, it was a relief to be able to remain at home. My heart goes out to the thousands in the past, those who had endured terrible conditions at the Quarantine Station. May they now be at peace.

That photo was odd. Odder still how we never noticed that blue orb at the time. Is it a spiritual phenomenon, or a technical glitch? I took it using my smartphone, Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime.

Hi Rajine

It is comforting to think that spirit guardians could have been around us that day. Just as there are good and unpleasant people, the same might apply in the spirit world after death. I was brought up in the Taoist belief that the Universe requires the balance of yin-yang forces; good and evil, Light and Dark. One could not exist without the other.

Thank you for reading my account.
[at] Zander

Are you seriously denying the holocaust right now?!
Hi Zander, I actually juuust sent the pictures from the swastika/iron cross tiles around the fireplace in an email. So they might be uploaded in the next few days! I know the symbol is ancient and means a lot of other things, however after asking the landlord about it, she confirmed that the original owners of the house were Nazi enthusiasts 😯 I was pretty disturbed by it!
I hope you get to see the pictures! And thanks for liking my creepy experience!
Bibliothecarius in Gettysburg Ghost Experience
Greetings, Lenape_Woman68, and welcome to YGS.

Did you keep the hand-carved pipe you found in your car as a memento? Such phenomena are particularly unusual, especially as the voice you heard was telling you to leave in what seems to have been an unfriendly manner. I wonder if your reaction caused the entity some regret, hence the 'gift' left in your car.

Best,
Biblio.
So a followup. I showed your photos to a director of photography I know, the guys who light movie and TV sets, select the lenses for the cameras and other things to get the shots the director wants. He is very curious about the lens on your camera.
But i'd say it's pretty obvious it comes from the attic. You should always seal it immediately after accessing it. This may sound like a reach, but maybe try to make a salt circle in the attic around the hatch. Salt works on almost everything in the myths, at least keeping them from going over the salt. Maybe you should also have the attic examined, just in case you'll find something significant or disturbing that could be connected to it.
The first partition scared the shiat out of me, because I thought it was about our house, the description was very similiar except for the fact that our attic hatch isn't in anybody's room, but at the end of the stairs next to our doors.

Afterwards I also realized this couldn't have been written by my brother because he was seven in 2016, and we only start learning basic english at age seven in school.
That does really sound like sleep paralysis, though. Especially the part where she can't move or talk.
InTheNight in I Saw It Too
There are many different stories about floating lights around the world. That's obviously not a will-o-the-wisp because they behave differently, and the figure and the footsteps confuse me. I remember reading about a myth about ghost lights that steal people's souls, but I have no idea what country it was from. Japan? There's so much things that aren't on wikipedia.

I'm also confused by what do you mean by "alley", but that's trivial.
The first one sounds like an etiäinen. It's kind of like an echo, except that IT goes/does things BEFORE you go/do them. They're not real entities themselves, so I wouldn't be concerned.

However the other one came AFTER you, so it can't be an etiäinen. And the uniform was different. I'm not sure what that means and I don't know when it happened, but there could be sonething to worry about since it didn't look EXACTLY like you did. THAT could be some kind of a doppelgänger and possibly dangerous, if we go by folk tales of doppelgängers trying to replace the original.

However since it was years in between, there might not be connection at all, and number 1 was an etiäinen and number 2 something else.
Hello again.

Such an awful history for such a lovely place. RCRuskin has said it to perfection "we humans are incredibly inhumane."

The orb is intriguing and the blue colour is gorgeous. Whatever it is, this picture is fascinating.

I enjoyed reading your experience, thanks for sharing.
lady-glow in The Soldiers' Wing
Hello Jubeele.

I'm so sorry to hear about the virus, wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, I didn't see anything but, nevertheless, enjoyed reading again your story.

Take care, my friend.
Amazing! That guy you met seems like a Godsend. That was really brave of you to stay on, there, alone. I'm glad you've found a good place, now.

About the swastikas, they were sold at county fairs in the US, used by the Coca~Cola company and in Southwest American Indian rug designs until the later 40s. It's an ancient Indo-European sun symbol. Speaking of the "Indo" part, you'll still find it used in East Indian sacred designs and Buddhist ones as well.

As to its use in the mid 20th century...well, I've learned that armies make propaganda about their opponents as a matter of course. Historians seem increasingly aware that some really twisted, horror story stuff was claimed by the Soviets about Germany, and the Allies went along with it to get their people to support going to war. Thanks again for sharing this story. It's really good.
Thank you, Rajine! Yes, I think you're right! So kind of you to say.

You know, I had forgotten to add that I believe that the running water from the sink created a kind of white noise which ghost boxes also use - something like a "between stations" not yet tuned in background noise.

I think that spirits can use such sounds to form sounds we can hear. I believe the running water was sort of the vector of my mother being able to be audible to me at that instance.
Hi, Rajine! It's so nice to hear from you again! I hope you have been well. So, table tapping has been around for a very long time - since antiquity, really. In the 19th century it enjoyed renewed popularity. Basically, one is using a table, almost like a Ouija board but with only the ability to tap, rather than indicate letters and spell out long messages - although I suppose one could get lucky and happen on a spirit that knew Morse code! Generally it's two taps for yes, one for no, but one could establish that at the outset of a session. A leg or entire side of a table will lift, I kid you not, and then come down to tap, once or twice, in response to questions. It does not seem to matter how heavy the table is, either.

As to why whatever had hold of the table had a particular interest in me, I cannot say. All I can say is "I do believe in spooks, I do, I do" and there is no need for them to prove their presence to me. Generally, I'm very happy and grateful that they almost never do!
Fort Drum? We're almost neighbors. I live in Syracuse. Well, assuming you're still assigned to Ft Drum. Also many thank yous for your service.

Just out of curiosity, had you ever considered the navy as a military option?
Aw. I missed being first. Sleep seemed a better idea at the time. 😁

Keeping diseases out is an important thing to do, but ought to be done humanely. Unfortunately, we humans are incredibly inhumane. Without quarantine stations, and sometimes even with them, by the time year hear of a disease over there, it will already be right here. And I could speak more about these things but that would be getting way off topic.

The blue orb looks interesting to me. Most especially since it is off center of the opening. I'll need to investigate optics to figure out why that might be.

And to reply to Rajine's comment, I think "most" supernatural entities are like most people: neutral and probably misunderstanding of their actions and the consequences.
Hi blksabbath74

Definitely is a interesting but creepy experience, I am glad that you managed to sort out the situation before it got any worse, or if something more sinister came through the ouija board.
Hi Inga

If I were you I wouldn't have lasted that long in that house, I'd be out of there within a week.

I believe that guy came into your life for this reason only, to tell you about what was going on there, I really do believe that some people are gifted with being able to sense and see the supernatural.
Hi again Zander

I believe that it's just your mum's way of telling you that she's still around, loved ones who pass on are always around us even though we can't see them anymore.
Hi Zander

Could you explain further about table tapping? It's the first time I've read about it and it sounds interesting.

I wonder why that table was particularly interested in you.
Hi Juan_Doooh

My guess is that it could be a doppelganger, I've submitted a similar experience on this site, mirrors are also said to be portals to other realms.
Hi Jubeele

I believe that it definitely could be your guardian spirit, I'd like to believe that not all supernatural entities are malevolent, it gives one hope that in the midst of a lot of terrible things that there is a glimmer of good and hope.
Dear KS, thank you for sharing your story! As to the "why" you mentioned you were 8 - 10 and you sisters were older, right? If either or both of your older sisters were in puberty, they were the right age for spirit beings to use for energy - almost like batteries. Many hauntings seem to have an adolescent in the home for this reason.
My apologies to lady-glow for the long delay. I caught that dreadful virus and recovery has been a slow process. Being not a techno-savvy person, it has also taken me a while figuring out how to download the relevant photos onto Imgur. Sadly, most of the photos I had taken were too blurry, as if there was movement around me. I kept only a few from that day.

These are the stairs leading up to the office level, with the original foyer area of the old entrance. My Romani friend told there was a man smoking, seated near the bottom step.
Https://imgur.com/v0tf5qQ

When I was on the lower floor, which used to be lounge area of the club, I had the weird sense of being surrounded. My friend told me there were groups of shadow people clustered about the room.
Https://imgur.com/1W9i6BQ

As for myself, I can't see anything out of the ordinary. Apart from an odd shadow or two. But I'm not gifted in 'seeing' such things. I find it interesting that others with the ability have claimed to see something though.
Lenape_Woman68 in Gettysburg Ghost Experience
Thank you for the welcome! It seems like no matter where you go in Gettysburg, there is at least some paranormal activity. One detail I didn't include in the story. When I returned home after the first trip, while unloading my car, I found an old, handmade smoking pipe, much like the ones from the Civil War era, under the front passenger seat. To this day, I still don't know where it came from or how it got under the seat.
Thanks lady-glow,

I'm not entirely sure how old the building is or what its history is, but it seemed like an old building that's been updated with the times if that makes sense. I haven't researched it, but it would probably be a good idea.
Virulentpeach,

Your experiences are almost the same as in our first apartment! We, too, had the first floor, 3 rooms and a utility hallway, which has the water heater in it, and a bathroom, in what I liked to call a Victorian tract house! There was 3 houses in a row. Identical! I published one story about that Victorian. Read it if you can. Many unexplained things happened in that house including the water heater. It decided to twist open its clean out valve and spew hot water all over the floor. I was at work and came home to find the Land Lord in our house grumbling something about the fact that me or my husband must have turned the faucet, releasing the water, and leaving the house with the water running. The bathtub faucet was running on hot as well as the sink and kitchen sink too! That was 54 years ago, I'm amused that I can still remember that incident at all! Cheer Up! You are not alone, you are not the first person to feel like some specter is out to get you! This too will pass! Good Luck!
Perhaps you could buy a sage bundle and smudge your home saying a cleansing prayer. Couldn't hurt, and it might just help you out! I'm sure "We" would be interested in the result, if any! ❤
lady-glow in The Temple Entity
Hello DragonWolf.

Thanks for your feedback.

If it were me, I would have asked the astrologer for my money back... Not only both families are still going through hardship after building the temple, but it has have a very negative effect to some people. (Just kidding...kinda)

I hope you can share what happened to your cousin.
Hi Rachel.

Thanks for your feedback.

Have you tried researching the history of the hotel and the land where it stands?
You haven't mention if it is an old building or a modern one. Although, based on this sentence "was a place that would be seen in a fantasy movie or depicted in a book about the supernatural.', makes me think that it's an old structure, perhaps with antique furniture that may be holding the imprint of old emotions.

Anyway, I hope the rest of your trip was full of fun and good memories.
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in First Unexplained Phenomenons 2
Hello reneemarie29, thank you for sharing your story. Something about your encounters sparked something in me, but I wasn't sure what it was at first. Were all the creatures/figures you saw in shadow? I ask because some of them you've relayed seem pretty detailed to make out from only a shadow. The thing about the snake was what took me back.

When I was a child I wandered into an area by our garage, enclosed by a small fence in the back and one on the side and the garage on the other side, so it was pretty enclosed. There was a lot of growth, weeds, plants etc at the time and I came upon a snake, rather large and coiled up. I didn't know what kind of snake it was at the time, but I do remember some flies buzzing around it, so it might have been dead. It didn't move and I of course fled. I told my parents and my dad cautiously entered the area, but didn't find a thing. I returned as well but didn't see anything. The area was pretty enclosed and we were in the middle of a small town, but there shouldn't have been any way for that snake to have gotten away, one that size without being noticed.

For all intents and purposes, it just vanished as if it was never there. I mention it because of your encounters and because my experience was somewhat strange. I remember upon seeing the snake that it almost seemed like a dreamlike state, not quite real, yet I was wide awake, and this was in broad daylight, I don't know how to describe it any better than that, like it was surreal, something didn't add up even in my young mind. It's bothered me for years, and your story reminded me of it and may have some kind of bizarre connection.

It's possible that my dad may have found it and removed it and lied to me to protect me, but I was there the whole time and my dad was terrified of snakes. The fact he even attempted to check it out was out of character in and of itself. Years before when he was a teen, a family member had cut the head off a snake and threw it in the truck of a car, and wouldn't you know it, a tire blew out on that very car. My father refused to open the trunk to change the tire so it's unlikely he would have disposed of it, even if he had found it. My mom verified his story.

I believe like you, what I saw wasn't really there, what it was I cannot say, but my mom had told me as an adult I saw things in the dark when I was a kid, though I wouldn't elaborate and I cannot remember most of it, save for an instance or two.

Back to your story, I'm not sure what it was you experienced, maybe my story helps in the fact that you're certainly not alone. Apparently whatever it was is aware of your fears, as it appeared as a snake at least twice. Something is trying to get your attention, but to what end? Have you tried any kind of cleansing rituals? There are some on this site, maybe a personal clearing if it's attached to you? Anyways great story and good luck!

Hello sir, I loved your confession/story, Can I use this for my YouTube Channel?
Hi again Rachel9997

We all have an innate sixth sense, not many may be aware of it but it's what generally warns us about creepy situations and danger and I think this was one of those times where the sixth sense kicked in.
Hi Rajine,

No, no one really bothered to ask about the history. I think we all just kind of wound up ignoring the incident and chalking it up to our imaginations playing tricks on us. But in retrospect, it may have been a good idea to try to find out in case there was actually something there.

Hi TravisCannabis,

Your comment is interesting cause the fact is Kerala's ruling party is a communist party, most supporters of the party, especially in my hometown are huge atheists, My own grandpa was one of them and was a staunch atheist. When things started happening due to the temple most of them said that it is better to be an atheist than worshipping a god that hurts you.

Hi Kesnitt95,

I agree, I don't usually go to the temples unless I feel a calling from the god, which is quite rare. I hope someone solves these issues, temples are meant to be a refuge.

Thank you for the warm welcome Lady- Glow

I will try to answer your questions the best way I can

- Do you mean that "Family A" moved into/bought the land in which "Family B" used to live?

Yes. Family A brought the land from Family B decades ago.

- Does the temple stand on the land of "Family A"? If so, are there any young women whom have being affected by these events?

Yes, the temple was erected right in from of their house just 10 feet away. I really don't know much about that family. It wasn't just women who faced issues in that house, men, children everyone in the family suffered some kind of misfortune.

- Did the circumstances of both families improve after building the temple?

Sadly no, I hear they are still having problems and maintaining the temple too is becoming harder.

- How long ago was the temple built and how many girls have been affected ever since?

I think its been about 13 years give or take. I know of 4 girls, there could be more

Its really strange that this should happen, strangely not all girls have been affected, just a few.

Hi Rajine,
This did not happen in a village, the place I have mentioned is more modern than that. So there are no village heads or elders. There are political figures and members of panchayat who did raise concerns. But you have to understand a lot of people around this part are either atheists for political reasons or just too rational.
Hi Rachel9997

I think whatever it was is attached to that room, did anyone speak to the hotel manager or staff to find out what happened in that room?
