Hi Belros79

The supernatural world isn't as veiled as we might think, did you trying talking to anyone at the hotel regarding the incident you and your girlfriend experienced?
Years ago me and my girlfriend rented a house in Droylesden, manchester England, we lived there for about 3 years, some of the stuff that went on in that house was so insane it gives me the chills now many years later. Things started disappearing in the house only to turn up weeks later in the original spot where they went missing from so we knew something strange was going on. About two years into residing at the property I came out of the front room to go upstairs and at the top of the stairs is what I can only describe as a black figure, it has head legs arms everything but all completely black, the strange thing was the light in the hall was off but I could still see this really black figure. I thought it was a burglar and ran at it to punch it only to find my fist swinging through thin air, I switched the light on and nothing was there it proper freaked me out. A few weeks later after the dark figure incident other strange things started to happen. Someone had bought us an old radio the type that you have to turn the dial to get the sound up you can feel it click on as you turn the dial but it's a Manual action to get the thing to work, it turned on by itself full blast, when we checked it there wasn't even any batteries in it so double freaked out. The last straw came when me and my girl were settling down for the night in bed and I heard a loud angry voice day "get out", I actually though I was hearing things or someone was messing about so I didn't mention it to my partner until the following morning when I asked if she had heard anything strange the night before she said yes I heard " get out", we packed our shiat and left the following week, I never believed in any of this stuff until I saw it with my own eyes, now many years later I still remember the time in that house and all I can say is there is some stuff in this world that we will never be able to explain but if it looks like evil, sounds like evil smells like evil then it's probably evil.
Hi paranormalinvestigator 19 the reason I asked the caretaker is that I want to cancel out any possibility that I brought an entity with me (read my last experience in this forum) or am susceptible to such things.

The_Lost_Voyage_11: thank you so much for reading my story and for the detailed comment. It really lifted my concerns and I think you're right that if it had the potential to harm me it would have done it in the first place. I have always had very weird dreams and night experiences since childhood but I'm completely new to these dreams (or whatever you call them) which can really be called as sleep paralysis so I really needed more information about it. This really helped thank you 😊

That would definitely be a type of situation that I feel like could be pretty alarming if not expected when staying somewhere.

One thing I am a little curious about, because I see in your comment that you mentioned the caretaker admitting that he felt a presence there, and wanted to ask if you have felt a presence there yourself while staying there?

Thank you, I will definitely hit them up and see if they are interested in taking a look and you're welcome.

The main thing I felt when I heard the feet shuffling along was more of a surprise, or caught off guard feeling, because I wasn't expecting it. At the same time a little bit after when we started to ask questions I did feel goosebumps coming over me like a hair raising type sensation but that was about it.

I also, if all goes according to plan, in the next month or two, want to try and re-investigate and see if I can gather more information, and want to try and see if I can get new evidence from that location.
Hi, lady glow, I actually asked the caretaker but he too was baffled by what I saw. Though he hesitatingly admitted that he has felt a presence there and does not stay inside alone at night (which is now kind of scary for me).
Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing well. I've read your story and I loved it so much. This story reminded me one time when my aunt was pregnant and we were very poor at that time, our roof was made out of leaves and shiat and sometimes at night, we would hear very weird sounds and shiat. My aunt would say it's possibly a "tiktik"

Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing well. I've read your story and I loved it so much. That was really strange. Kapres are known to tease or play pranks on people. But I think they are one of the less harmful creatures the philippines has.

Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing well. I've read your story and I loved it so much. My guess is that it is a Kapre cause you mentioned humming, usually kapres are just chill or like to make fun and tease people.

Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing well. I've read your story and I loved it so much. I am filipino, I have never been to Baguio before but one day I would like to visit there, I have read a couple of scary stories. I think it would be a great experience checking scary places in there.

Take good care always!
Hello Nicole and thanks for sharing! It's always nice to run into a fellow up state New Yorker or at least former in my case, though I still enjoy visiting family back there.

Your description of the area you grew up in sounds much like mine, a very old settlement that had once been attacked, in our case a fort, people had been captured and driven out and fires had been set. It was also rich in native american history.

I digress though, onto your story. Ironically it sounds as if there were 2 alternate versions of your house entered through the sewing room in your dreams. First off, in reality, this entryway, could there have really been a doorway there (beyond the closet opening) that may have been walled off to conceal something? The first all white house (replica), you mentioned being curious and wanting to explore, but how else did you feel? Did you feel at all at home or safe, or being watched and uncomfortable (before the look of it changed)?

Ironically the second home in your dreams almost feels like something out of Silent Hill, the decay and sinister feel to it. There's something about that room, the closet in particular, that's being hidden. Something that drew you in and relates to the dreams you have. It quite literally could be an astral doorway, but something must have created it?

Do you know any more about the house, and its history? Any deaths, anything about the previous occupants? There's something to your dreams and the sewing closet, but I would need more information as its not clear, but I feel you experienced something significant for sure.

I'm glad to hear you aren't having those kinds of dreams anymore. I know for years afterward I would have bizarre dreams about our family home and its haunting, until a few years back when I did something about it. The dreams are still a mystery as is what happened there.

I look forward to hearing more of your stories/experiences!
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Night Horror
Hello 00786, thanks for sharing your story. I'm sure it was an unnerving encounter to say the least for you.

There are many theories regarding the phenomenon known as sleep paralysis, including the popular scientific one regarding our bodies being paralyzed in our sleep to keep us from hurting ourselves, but there are things that don't add up about this nor explain a person's experiences.

From what I've researched and spoken to others regarding sleep paralysis, what I believe is it's the phenomenon of your astral body/spirit attempting to reenter your body after astral traveling. At night while we sleep our spirit roams free visiting other places/times as well as other planes of existence. We do this in what's referred to as an astral body, some people refer to it as out of body experiences. We don't usually remember any of it, but our dreams can sometimes be fragments of these journeys.

Sometimes as the astral body (which looks pretty much the same as the physical one) reenters the physical body, it doesn't always go smoothly. Sometimes the mind awakens before the transition is complete and you're sort of half in half out. It appears you're paralyzed because you cannot move, but that's not really the case, you just don't have full possession of your physical form and its faculties yet so it appears as paralysis. It looks like you're in your body, but in truth everything isn't 'reconnected' for lack of a better term. People feel odd sensations due to this and they can see and hear things normal people can't because they are still partially in that astral body. Since the astral body can travel to other places/times/dimensions, it is also capable of seeing being/spirits/entities not of our world and hear them as well.

As the mind is awake and doesn't comprehend what's going on, of course fear is the end result and this actually blocks the integration of the body and astral body, the process is halted and it can feel like an eternity. Some people actually fall asleep or pass out, it's the only way to complete the circuit in some cases and get the person back in their body, a sort of fail safe. Some people in your case recite religious phrases and prayers and this helps to, because as the fear dissipates then the integration can continue and as soon as the astral form is back in the body, then the visions and voices disappear and the person can move again.

As to the being you saw and the accompanying voices, I wouldn't worry too much about it. If that entity was out to harm you, it had it's chance. I think it was more curious, observing what you were going through and the fact you could see it as well. That's what I pick up on anyways.

If this is only your second sleep paralysis episode, it doesn't seem a frequent thing, but you can always pray for protection before you sleep and practice other modalities if they're comfortable for you and your belief system. There are space clearings you can do, sage will help, some put a ring of salt around your bed, there are things you can do if you feel you need to. I don't feel there is any danger and it seems you didn't either until you read that other story. It inspired fear, but this being you encountered doesn't seem to give off that air, only curiosity, I think if it had ill intentions, it would have done more than just watch you.

As always trust yourself, do what is right for you, hopefully this helps and Good Luck!
"If anyone would help me to understand if they know anything about this."

Have you asked your uncle if he experienced anything unexplained during the time he lived in the flat?
I think he is more likely to know the answer than any of the members of the forum.

Perhaps you could perform a cleansing/blessing of the place according to your personal beliefs.

Thanks for sharing.
Hi Panini18

Are the Kapre known to enter houses? I only have a small amount of knowledge of Philippine mythology through my wife.
I never saw anyone else. It was just me and the feeling of being followed/hunted.

So I don't personally know of any paranormal groups in Saint Augustine proper that might have interest or expertise directly regarding the Old Jail, but I do know of one in Jacksonville, which is about 45 minutes drive north.


You might check in and see if they'd be willing to have a look at your orb footage. I don't know if they've ever investigated the Old Jail, but they are locals and you might pique their interest in order to get their time going over the footage. Also, I don't know how expert they are in photography, but, yeah, that's all I got.

I really agree with you about the shuffling noise, with the caveat that I wasn't there and am going by the details you provide. If it wasn't you doing it, then it sounded way too loud and close to be Mike or echoes of someone even farther away. Did you feel anything when you heard it? Temperature difference, static tingle in the area, even just an extra strong creepy or watched feeling? I'm thinking not or probably you would have said so already.

It sounds like quite an active night/location with so many people experiencing something.

I appreciate that you patiently answered all my questions! Thanks.
Hello Yohanchan_MCT!

I'm glad that you liked my story. Yes you can use this story for your Youtube Channel. You can just plug-in my IG account for credits. Just mention your email here so that I can send it to you.

Also, you can drop down your Youtube channel here so that I can also hear it and your other videos. I'm also interested to hear more paranormal stories from fellow Filipinos.

Best of luck! 😉
Logged into here after remembering my love and fondness for this site as a teen, and remembered how I had meant to post more but never got the time to. But, after finding this post I figured I'd comment and update the void on the fact that I am now 24 and still, in fact, not with them yet lol.
I've had many "backrooms" dreams in my life. At least once, I recall having a "backroads" dream like that. So imagine driving around trying to find a place where all the roads are exactly alike.

Closets are great liminal spaces, spaces that are at the border between spaces. They aren't part of the room itself, but they aren't a room to themselves. Attics and basements are very similar, so it really should not be a surprise that attics and basements become "haunted". The second staircase you describe sounds very much like a servants' staircase. It has a lot to do with how maids and butlers can just seemingly appear, and these are also the "secret passages" in many gothic tales. And they also make great liminal spaces.:)

I find these non-space spaces so intriguing, especially in this experience you shared.
Alright, I was wondering, because I was thinking maybe something could have happened that may have fed into the energy of what was going on that could have led to the changes in the dreams.

Have you ever spotted another person in these dreams or have you always been the only person exploring in the dreams?
To my knowledge, there was no major changes in my life, when these dreams were occurring.
Hi there I hope you get notifications for this or just check in regular... The reason I found your post is because of what I seen on Ghost adventures: house calls. Watch the full episode if you wish it was very interesting to all of your comment with the clicking (getting louder also), and the black shadow mass. But if were you I would skip into 32. 20

Heres the link to watch it:-
ParanormalInvestigator19 in Was He A Ghost?
That must have been quite a shocker to witness, however at the same time, like others have said, I do believe that he wasn't aware of his passing yet before carrying out the remainder of the task at hand at the time of his passing.

I think it also does go to show that you never know when death's embrace will come for us. Could be today, tomorrow, weeks from now or years from now. There's just no way for us to know for sure.

Also wanted to say Welcome to the Site!
That was really interesting to read through, I was curious though, when you mention these dreams about exploring and how it seemed to change over time, do you remember any major events or changes in life that may have some sort of connection to causing these dreams to happen? Or were they consistent? Or was it more of a random or sporadic time when these dreams would occur?
ParanormalInvestigator19 in The Spirits Of The Old Jail

Thank you for the input, I have not thought about having a paranormal investigation group look at the footage, and will research into that to have them take a look at it.

I know when I asked that I thought I had seen someone walk through, or felt like someone had walked through the door, and was thinking that someone was there.

When I heard them say did you see that, I wasn't sure what had prompted that at the time, though I know a few people were experiencing other things as well, such as one group mentioning seeing cold spots, and others mentioning hearing things come across spirit boxes.

I do know that when I head the feet shuffling, to me it sounded like it came from inside the cell in front of me, along the wall, but had asked Mike about if he had shuffled his feet, due to the fact that I wasn't sure if there was a chance that it could have echoed, though I feel personally that if it echoed from him, I would have heard the noise behind myself as well, and tested with my own feet to recreate the sound, and couldn't seem to replicate it.

I do apologize for the late reply, works been keeping me busy, and I do appreciate the comment, will definitely look a little deeper into some of the possibilities and questions you posed.

Hi Chumamesha,
The word you are looking for is enthusiast. I think that counts for something. Just be careful. And no matter what anyone else says, if things get too intense or you start getting really bad vibes, it's ok to just nope yourself right on out of there.

I saw an orb just like you describe years ago. My sister witnessed it too. We were looking out the window after dark when we saw what looked like a motorcycle headlight go flashing down a lane way with some old trailers on our property. There was one man staying there who helped my dad with work, and who owned a motorcycle, so we thought it was him at first - except there was no sound. Motorcycles are loud. It was going too fast not to be motorized, so we agreed it couldn't be a bicycle light and didn't know what else it could have been. We ran out to investigate, ran down the trailer row, saw and heard nothing, so looked around a bit and were standing behind the old barn when we saw a glowing, basketball sized globe of light come swooping over the top of the barn - still going quickly, like maybe 10 km in speed, the same as the light going up the lane. It descended from the height of the barn roof, passed over our heads, and flew away towards our house. We ran after it, but couldn't keep up, so I hollered, "Wait, come back!" And it did. It stopped, swung back around, came back to us, and hovered over our heads. Not knowing what else to do, I said, "Take us to your leader!" In response, it went flashing away even faster than before, off over the field behind our house and away into the distance and was gone.

Because it responded to me, I am certain this orb had intelligent direction. I agree that the only possible thing that could come close is ball lightning, but it wasn't it. There was no ozone smell, no static in the air, no electric crackle, no sound at all. It was also a stable light source; uniform shape, uniform brightness. Also ball lightning doesn't respond to verbal directives.

I don't know what it was either. I wish I'd had something better to say than take us to your leader. My sister is in denial and now says this was a firefly, and gets nonplussed when I ask how many fireflies she's seen the size of her head. Anyway, solidarity! I'm at least one other person who's seen what you've seen, even if I can't tell you what it was.

Thanks for reading my story Rajine, yeah you're right not just my mother but my siblings also have had some personal encounters but none of them had this kind of experience and we all know that there's something in our house but it has never harmed any of us. My mother once told me that my elder brother and I used to have sleep paralysis from our childhood. I do remember those dreams and I'll share some of them in one of my stories inshallah soon.
Rajine in Night Horror
Hi 00786

I guess if your mum believes you then perhaps something could be in the house and she might have had her own experiences, try speaking to other family members at home and see if they also experienced anything out of the ordinary.
Hi Akin

Orbs have been known to be associated with ghosts and ghostly activity, I remember once a friend of mine sent me a video of the place he was visiting during his vacation and it was at night and in front of him this orb comes moving past, stops in front of him, does a U-turn and goes away, it's hard to explain the size of it but it wasn't small, but big enough to notice and it wasn't moving slowly but not very fast either, and had a light green tinge, strangely enough, during making the video he hadn't noticed it but when I told him to watch the video for the orb he could see it very clearly.

Hello The_Lost_Voyage_11,

Good observation. Thank you for reading my story.

There's a lot of questions we weren't able to ask the care taker, even the care taker wasn't aware about the happenings. I honestly forgot to ask the question if there were really a room on that spot but good question though.

We will definitely give update here regarding the investigation. We are not professionals but I am not sure if this is the right term to place it 'enthursiast'

Thank you.
Hi! How are you? I hope you are doing well. I've read your story and I loved it so much. I want to ask permission though if it's alright that I read your story for my YouTube channel. Of course, I will surely credit the story to you and will also be happy to plug your channel or any account you want me to. I hope that's alright? Do let me know your thoughts. Rest assured, I WON'T post or use your story without consent. Thank you and stay safe always!
BaiAnina in Was He A Ghost?
This feels like a morbid reminder of our own mortality, and that food delivery people like him (rest his soul) risk their lives everyday for our convenience and to feed themselves and their family. We shouldn't take their service for granted.

It must have been a shock to you, but thank you for sharing all the same. Do keep the guy in your prayers too 😢
Please write more stories. I really enjoyed reading your story:)
It could have been an out of body experience.

Hi Marsoplis and welcome

That is really a strange experience, do think it might have been streetlight from outside or something that cast a shadow on the ceiling? Sometimes there's a reasonable explanation for what we might feel is supernatural, also having mentioned being a easily frightened kid, fear gets the best of us and as a kid sometimes it can go on overdrive.
Jam91191 in 15 Church Close
Sorry for the years late reply it had a very large garden. An l shape lounge. The stairs were just to the left or the front door, and branched out left and right at the top of the stairs. This house was haunted and the people who bought from us now rent the house and have tried to sell many times! It was semidetached. If you want pictures messa he me privately. It also had steps up to the front door. And a crazy paved driveway
Also from what I've read, you seemed alert, could it be perhaps your medication could have played a part in your experience?
Hi ghost_fan

That is indeed strange, more so that whatever it was knew your name, when she was doing her check up did you have any sort of conversation with her? And did you get any sort of response or vibe from her, to suggest that something wasn't right with the situation?
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Was He A Ghost?
Hello MohammedAhmed, thanks for sharing!

I certainly understand your reluctance to share this story, to many it can seem hard to believe, however as you said you are in good company here.

I have heard of stories like this before, the accident claimed the deliveryman's life so quickly he did not process what had happened, did not know he had died and so he continued with the task at hand before his unfortunate end. His delivery to you was the last thing on his mind and his spirit/ghost obtained an imprint of the injury, that's why he showed up confused and with a visible injury.

Death as sudden as his is like trying to process a trauma, many people have trouble that are alive dealing with something like this, like when a relative dies just after you leave their house, you can't believe it, it's no different for a ghost/spirit that was once human. His behavior, being confused, not only as a result of the head injury he must have suffered but not understanding why his new form couldn't hold onto something physical anymore such as your food order. He had just passed and took enough energy with him in the process in order to appear as a physical entity even though he wasn't anymore.

I understand it was disturbing, it would be to me as well, such is our lives here on this 3D plane of existence when it crosses that of another entirely different dimension, which as you can see from the scores of stories posted on this site alone, happens quite often.

You are with friends here, good luck!
The_Lost_Voyage_11 in Unknown Maid's Room
Hello Chumamesha777, thanks for sharing! It sounds like an interesting series of encounters for sure, and has me wondering about who she is.

To answer your question, I am also in agreement that this sounds like a residual haunting, especially since she didn't seem to acknowledge you in any way. However the nature of the encounters may suggest something more than a residual haunting.

If you saw her going into some sort of room beneath the stairs, then there must have one time been a room or a closet in that location. When you spoke with the landlord you stated they were confused about the happenings, but did you ask specifically if there was ever a room or any kind beneath the stairs?

The key to all this and what tickles my mind is the so called room beneath the stairs, both times you saw her she was either coming or going from this location. If it's not residual then it's almost like she was revealing the previous existence of this room? Why?

To me I wonder also why this room no longer exists, if it was torn out or walled over, again why? Was it to cover something up? After all it makes no logical sense to just cover up a room that could be used unless it was to hide something or the room had been damaged badly or some such reason?

The history would be helpful, but may not be easy to find if something's being covered up here. If you could get your hands on the original blueprints/floorplans of the place depending in the age, that may reveal more if you can actually locate this room.

The only other questions I have for you, is was she dressed like maid, or did you assume because she was cleaning that she was a maid? What she was wearing, did you notice if the clothes were modern, or more dated? That may also reveal a time period for you to look into.

Anyways great story, I'll be curious as to what you turn up! Good Luck!
CrimsonTopaz in Was He A Ghost?
Mohammed, This is such a sad situation. The poor guy. I've heard there are many accidents in India, especially with motorcycles. The traffic is hectic from what I've seen on TV. His spirit must not have realised he died back the scene of impact. This is truly a very sad situation. May he RIP. Thank you for telling us about your vision.

Thank you for sharing your footage! I watched it a few times. Those orbs! Hm. There is a lot of reflective surfaces all around; flat white walls in a small space, darkened window glass, glass display covers, glass lamps and cabinets. There's also a lot of shifting, uncertain light; I guess it's the flashlight causing shifts and shadows and pixelation. The orbs do seem to move independently of camera motion, which should rule out reflections in the lens. They move through open space rather than across surfaces and in some pretty deliberate directions. There was at least three times when you talked about the sheriff that the cropped up as well. I guess dust or bugs would be the only possible debunks; I don't know much about photography so I don't know what hallmarks to rule in or out bugs or dust either. Is there any possibility of running the footage by a sister investigator group that might have the expertise to rule on bugs or dust? Maybe a photography professor (is that a thing?) could be asked to look at it?

The shuffling noise was loud! On the one hand your buddy Mike didn't seem to be able to say whether or not he was for sure moving exactly when you heard it - sounded like he couldn't pinpoint the moment in order to account for his feet. And, as valkricry says, there is a lot of people and ambient noise. Still, that shuffle was _loud_. If the footage is accurate, it sounded like it was right there in front of you.

At 3:26 you ask, "Did someone just come in through the door?" What prompted that? Did you see or sense something? You - or at least the camera - had been looking at the door for a few seconds before you said that.

At around 4:15 there are some other people going woooooah in the background and it sounds like one of them says "Did you saw (sic) that?" Do you have any idea what was going on over there?

So I seldom see much in the way of spirits, but I am kind of energy sensitive. I tried to tune into your video to see if I could pick up on anything across the time and distance. Didn't get anything from the orbs themselves. The cell you were in around the 6:30 mark had an anxious feel to it, though that was the room with the effigy in the bed so maybe it was just the accumulated energy of jump scares.:D If you are able to go to the Old Jail after hours, when it's quieter, I hope you share your findings with us here.

I've been to the Old Jail several times, but only on the Ghosts and Gravestones Trolly Tour with its brief visit, so I really appreciated the look you gave us at the cells and staff areas of the prison. It's an interesting place. The cells are awful. Incarceration would have been horrible.
Such a nice story thanks for sharing. Do you know anything more about shadow figures. I used to see some irregular figures at night as a child but I'm not sure what we're they actually
chumamesha777 in Unknown Maid's Room
Hello Rajine,

Thank you for reading my story. Honestly, I just had a conversation with our landlord about the house. They have no idea as to why there's an incident or happenings such as like that.

We will get to find that out. We'll have youtube videos for that.

Stay safe.

[at] Valkricry

Yeah, the main thing I was caught off guard with was the foot shuffling noise along with the orbs.

I know sometimes dust and bugs can appear like orbs, however with the ones I saw, I didn't see them carry any characteristics of dust or bugs, and was wondering if you may agree on that? Mostly cause I don't have as much experience with orbs on camera and willing to accept any sort of outside opinion on that.

I do know, and agree with you about some noises possibly being contamination, and have been thinking about seeing if there's a way I can get back to do one without as many people present.
Interesting video, but keep in mind, since the site was active at the time (others walking round, etc.) some of your sounds MIGHT be caused by contamination. Echoes and reverb caused by others. Doesn't explain those orbs though...
Hi Rajine

I only know that the house was old and used for some commercial purpose like office or storage because the electricity bill was generated for a commercial unit and not a residential one.

I did not experience anything after that as I installed a Hindu deity in the gallery post that. However Now I look back to that day it was not the house but something from the outside that followed as none of my friends experienced anything ever too.

I never assume that spirits only communicate in English, so I also attempt to keep an eye out for other methods they want to show themselves i.e. Orbs, knocks, feet steps, knocking, etc.

At the old jail they do have records of executions that took place, and had the prisoners build their own gallows. One such prisoner, they approved an experiment to see if he could still recognize and respond when asked questions after he was hanged.

"He died on the spot." This entire story depends on the delivery of those four words, "died on the spot," and especially on the timing of that line, doesn't it?

Reminds me of some other zingers like,

"Humans can lick hands too!"

"But we don't have a clown statue."

And of course the classic,

"Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?"
Rajine in Was He A Ghost?
And yes I am absolutely very sure what you saw was in fact a ghost...
Rajine in Was He A Ghost?
Hi MohammedAhmed

I feel kind of bad for that delivery guy, but there has been known cases where people have seen people who have died and only found out later that the person has been dead for hours if not days.
Hi Chumamesha777

It could be a resident spirit of a past owner/maid or a residual entity but from what you say it doesn't seem dangerous, it's just going about doing what it was doing when it was alive.
Hi Aslipablo

Do you perhaps know the history of the house you lived in? That might shed some light on what you experienced, from your friends reaction I gather that they have not experienced anything like you have, have you experienced anything else after that?
Hi ParanormalInvestigator19

You mentioned death row, do you perhaps know of any death sentences were carried out in that prison? Perhaps it's the souls of the past inmates, even though they were criminals their lives ended before their time and they probably have unfinished business.

Welcome to YGS, MohammedAhmed.

Those food delivery apps and services are very convenient. They can also be a bit costly, but there's a tradeoff there. Normally, the skeptic in me would be asking about your mental state at the time, but unless you heard a screeching of tires outside your apartment, I can't see how you would have knowledge of the accident that claimed the delivery man's life.
Aslipablo, not allowable!
Sorry, its the autocorrect fault!

Creepy story indeed. When you saw your cat lying dead outside, were you sure it was your cat and not some other stray cat that looked like yours? Just asking. It boggled up my mind too.😅

"How did you assume that the ghosts speak English only?"

Keeping in mind that ghosts are the consciousness of departed people, wouldn't it be understandable for them to speak the language they did when alive?
How did you assume that the ghosts speak English only? I mean there is a strong possibility that they react to the energy we give them ex- if weak in the heart then they manifest and if strong and threatening to them then it's a closed operation.
Hello there, I know it has been 10 years since anyone has been active on this story. I am from the Portland area about 15 minutes away from where the LEC was located. Unfortunately new (modern) houses have been put up in its place. The photos and stories (this one especially) on this place are amazing. I have come here to ask if anyone knows about the tunnel and if it remains even with the new houses. I know that in the story above had mentioned that is was almost a mile long. If anyone has any experience inside the tunnel it would be much appreciated if they let me know how to access it from another point. I hope someone gets notified about a new comment seeing as this is a fairly old website.
Thank you,
I felt really nice to read your story and I can very well feel you as I have also lost my pet Coco. It's been 2 years but not even a single day passes by without thinking of her. She was with me only for 8 months but felt me with everlasting memories of joy. In this world no one can replace anyone else
Hi Panini!

Fellow filipino here! I loved your story! Based on your description, it does sound like a Kapre. I think its the only mythical creature we have in the Philippines that is around that height.

By the way, I want to ask permission though if it's alright that I read your story for my YouTube channel. Of course, I will surely credit the story to you and will also be happy to plug your channel or any account you want me to. I hope that's alright? Do let me know your thoughts. Rest assured, I WON'T post or use your story without consent. Thank you and stay safe always!
chumamesha777 in Unknown Maid's Room
Hi BaiAnina,

Thank you for reading my story, but hey, that would be a good idea. We are about to create a youtube channel regarding paranormal activity and we'll definitely visit the house again.

God bless ❤
Hello Chumamesha777, thank you for sharing your story.

That was creepy indeed...
Seeing as it was a rental house, it must've had some sort of history to it. Sounds like one of your classic residual hauntings to me. Did you ever ask your landlord about the history of the house? You might want to look into that. For fun, perhaps, since you don't live there anymore anyway 😆

That said, it seems like the old maid still dutifully looks after the house long after she passed. Maybe she wasn't even a maid, but someone who lived in that house way before you did and loved a clean and orderly home. It doesn't sound like a malevolent entity to me.

Ha ha, no worries over typos! I'm looking forward to your footage! I'll be checking back over the next few days for your link. Thanks for sharing it with us over here at YGS!

Sorry, wanted to correct, LadyDarke, realized I swapped the D and A on accident
ParanormalInvestigator19 in The Spirits Of The Old Jail
[at] LdayDarke

Sure thing! I've got a couple days off after I get off work tonight, and I'll find the video and share a link over for the investigation from my youtube channel.

I hope you update us again if your wife sees something when the dog alerts her! I agree with you that, for whatever reason, pets do seem more attuned. Have you heard of PetFluent buttons? They're like speech therapy buttons that you program with a word, but sized down for paws. Some people have done a lot in training their cats and dogs to communicate with them; there's a woman with a dog named Bunny who has taught I think about 200 words now, and they can talk about abstract concepts like Bunny's dreams. Here's her youtube channel: -->

As you have a puppy which is prime age for learning anything, including speech buttons, you could start training him if you have the time and inclination, and perhaps one day be able to ask your pup what he sees.

I've been trying to train my cats but haven't got far. One of my girls drags one button on top of the other and sometimes presses it with that, but not her paw. >.< They know they should press the button to get a treat and paw at it, but I can't get them to press it. Anyway, I had my one kitty and I was giving her a treat. The treat drawer was open with the button underneath it; it is the bottom drawer, so neither she nor I could reach the button, it was covered. All of a sudden, my cat got so startled she fell over sideways, her feet skidding out and kicking her treats all about, all the while with her head twisted the other direction to look under the drawer, then she went scrabbling up and rocketed out of the room. A moment later, the button said, "Treat." I did feel the electricity and static you get around a spirit low down at floor-pet-level, but I didn't see anything or pick up a strong sense of anything. I think it was just one of the cats I glimpse around.


I'd love to see the footage you took in the Old Jail! If you can post more of it beyond just the tiny clip of the footsteps and growl without doxxing yourself, I'd be interested to see your adventures exploring the cells.

Thanks for the additional detail! It was all a good read.
ParanormalInvestigator19 in The Spirits Of The Old Jail
[at] LadyDarke,

I'd love to go into further detail.

The cells were not that big in solitary and death row, like big enough to fit a couple beds and have maybe enough room to take like two steps to the back of the cell and two steps to each side if even that much.

And then in the solitary cell there wasn't even a bed, it was just concrete all the way around and that was it, and probably a lil over 6 feet deep, and about 6 feet wide with a metal door.

Being there in the dark and no one really alone definitely felt eerie. It's like you could feel something is there, just out of sight ready to pounce at a moments notice.

When it came to the sound of footsteps it only lasted a second or two. And tried to recreate my footsteps to see if I made the noise, but nothing ended up recreating it.

What made it creepier is it sounded like someone that may have had their ankles chained up, dragging/shuffling their feet, which makes me wonder if it was possibly a spirit.

I'll have to grab the link for the video and put it up for others to watch. I had my friend there with me, but I know when I heard the shuffling, I was by the one cell by myself, and he was off in another cell, as we decided to split up at times to see if we'd capture anything that way.
ladydarke I told the wife to look with him from now on when he pops his head up. Yorke would do the same thing. We both watched new pup staring up at something in the hall and he was slowly walking backwards focused on whatever it was and has happened a couple times. Are dogs natural Energy detectors. Thanks for your comments gives me more to think about.

It's nice that the dog saw it too! It's quite validating to get confirmation on a sighting - and the confirmation means just as much coming from a non-human. I see cats that vanish the way you see mice. I hear a lot in paranormal circles about how once you have one experience, you've sort of 'unlocked' that set of experiences and continue to have them. Like, people that see bigfoot continue to have sightings. People that have seen a ghost often continue to have other sightings. So maybe people that see spirit mice, or cats, continue to see more mice or cats?

I was so sorry to read about your yorkie in the post below this one. It's going on a year, isn't it? Perhaps you are more open at this time hoping for a visitation, and thus are more aware of the mice as well. If this is on your mind, perhaps an animal psychic could help with communication.

An upside of your situation is that at least ghost mice don't poop in the cupboards.


Very cool! I've been to the Old Jail in Saint Augustine a few times as part of the Ghosts and Gravestones Trolley Tour - which I highly recommend if you're in the area. I've never picked up anything paranormal while there, but there's a big group that goes in, and a guide who plays the character of Charlie, he did a great job hamming it up and acting scary by disappearing into the dark and reappearing slamming into bars! But, all told, way too raucous an event for ghost hunting. This event didn't explore, either - just went in through a door by the kitchens and up to one room with a long table that was surrounded by cells. It's neat that you got to explore the whole place, including solitary. I understand that the prisoners on death row there had to build their own gallows, too, though the tour guide said that the life expectancy for anyone sentenced there was only about four years due to the horrific conditions; like even for the time, deliberately cruel conditions. That sheriff was a torturer and a monster, truly the worst criminal was running the jail.

Several years ago, I went on a ghost tour in the old state penitentiary in Jefferson City, MO, more like yours where the group got to see the whole place, though nobody had investigation equipment beyond cameras. Solitary was active there, too; I picked up on spirits of a flamboyant homosexual man there as well as patrolling, bulldog-like man. In one of the cell blocks, I picked up on a spirit under one of the beds whom the guide confirmed had previously grabbed the leg of a boy on the tour from under the bed; I strongly felt he'd hung himself, though the door thresholds were so low I didn't see how. The guide said some prisoners managed it, though; they'd slump down with their legs sprawling on the floor and just not stand up to save themselves. I have a photo from there of a pale translucent hand on my shoulder from one spirit I had felt crawling up my back and holding onto my shoulders; I carried him out of the prison because even a life sentence ends. We got to see the execution room and I even sat in the electric chair. There was nothing there, quietest place in the jail. I think the prisoners had all made their peace by the time they reached the execution chamber. They'd had years to get ready for it, seen a priest, chosen their last meal. They were packed up to go and it didn't seem to me that anybody had left any baggage behind in the chamber.

Saint Augustine is famed as the Oldest City in America and has so much history. It's exciting you got the opportunity to investigate there, and came away with some EVPs too! I was really interested to hear about your explorations in the deeps of the Old Jail beyond the surface entry point included on my tour. Would you care to go into more detail about hearing the footsteps that later showed up on your recording? That was like the creepiest part and you just skimmed over it! And of course inquiring minds want to know if you knew where all the fleshy feet that could have been shuffling were at the time, and all the juicy details about sitting alone (?) in the dark (?) listening and filming. Can you describe the solitary/death row cells and cell block? How big were they, what were the conditions like, were there windows?

Thanks for sharing. I quite enjoyed reading your experience.

Update-Myself and our puppy are reclined on the couch pup's head facing large living room when pup quickly raises his head and I look, and we are both watching another ghost mouse in the middle of the room running to the kitchen opening. I have caught quick glimpses of them, but this was about 5 feet of running then vanished. Still creeps me out.
CrimsonTopaz in I Miss My Father Dearly:
Ladyglow,Thank you for lovely message. You have a very kind heart. Your words of condolences are much appreciated. My sister is very upset as she was the closest to my mum and hopefully in time our tears will ease and our smiles will increase when we look back on all the beautiful memories.
ParanormalInvestigator19 in The Devil In The Bathroom
That was quite the interesting read, and definitely enjoyed the detail provided in it.

Has the spirit reappeared at all at a later time with a similar description or is that the one and only time you've seen it? Also, did anything else happen in the house that day?
ParanormalInvestigator19 in Was It Really Me?
Sounds like the possibility of a Doppelganger, however, the main question I am wondering is, did the crying disappear when the spirit disappear, or were you still hearing the crying after?
ParanormalInvestigator19 in Neighbor's White Lady
Like Lady-glow mentioned, I am curious on if it was possible that it could have been your neighbor, did the features match your neighbor at all? (Hair color, length, etc) or any reason your neighbor would have been at that spot during that time of day?
ParanormalInvestigator19 in A Creepy Creature
This was quite interesting to read about in your story. One thing I am wondering about is if your area may have some cryptids tied to it that may explain what the creature could possibly be? (like how there is the mothman, the jersey devil, etc).

Overall was pretty interesting to read about and definitely wondering what that creature could be.

I offer my deepest condolences to you and your family for the loss of your mother, may her memory live on forever.
An interesting and touching experience.

I'm interested to see your painting of a daisy as well, mostly because it reminded me of the song by Jud Strunk that involved a death. Https:// (And if that doesn't work, just search for 'daisy a day' in whatever platform you use for music. I'm sure Alexa knows.)

If you could post a link to the image on facebook, or if you have a deviantart account, not that you are a deviant, that's just the name of the website, you could post it there and give us a link? Thanks! 😁
Hi Piperasc

Just like you I also believe that loved ones who've passed on are always around us even though we can't see them anymore and they will give us little signs now and then or when we are at our lowest, to show us that they are still around and guiding us and giving us strength when we need it, all we have to do is open ourselves up to experience it.
iamestee, My deepest sympathies to you on the loss of your mother. May she rest in peace. My mother passed away very recently and my family are devastated as you must be. Something I'm finding that helps me right now through these days of grief - that may help you, is to look at my mum's photo and tell her things I didn't get around to saying. It's a very powerful connection that has helped your grandma come to visit your mother. They must have been really close.
Thank you for sharing your situation.
Hi Rajine,

I guess you're right. The people we love who already passed away does wait for us on the other side and some of them do go back to fetch us as we travel back in God's arms.

Thanks for your comment, it really means a lot to me.
Hi lady-glow,

Thanks for the warm welcome! I really appreciate it! 😊

According to my aunt (my mom's oldest sister), my grandma's favorite daughter is my mom so I guess that's one of the reasons why she visited my mom on her wake. Maybe see wanted to see her physical body lying in the coffin before they reunite in heaven since the last time she saw my mom is before she died in 198x (sorry I forgot the exact year).

Yup, I actually took the coins and placed it in my mom's purse that I kept when she died. The coins have different production year (around 2000-2014) which I think doesn't have any significance in both of them. Yes, my father-in-law and cousin does believe in the afterlife. Maybe you're right about my grandma's intention.

Thanks for your comment, it really means a lot to me.
Hi iamestee

As lady-glow mentioned it's believed that loved ones who've passed on wait on the other side for people who are or recently passed on, I believe this as well having had experiences myself or people around me telling me about their own experiences.
Welcome to YGS.

I find your experience puzzling and fascinating.

It is widely believed that a person's loved ones and ancestors are waiting for them at the moment of their passing; hence, your story makes me wonder the reason that would make your grandmother come to the - funeral home?
Were the coins still there by the time you and your husband arrived? Did you keep them? Were all of the coins minted the same year? If so, was this year of any significance either for your mother and/or your grandmother?
Do your father-in-law and cousin believe in the afterlife? Perhaps Grandma's intention was to show them that death is not the end.

I imagine how unnerving most have been for everyone to know that a long departed mother would come to see her daughter on her wake, and only hope they are together and happy again. May their souls rest in peace.

Thanks for sharing.
Hi Heavqn

By the way you reacted I'm assuming that this woman wasn't someone you recognized, maybe it was a visitor? 🤔 That lady sounds like something out of The Grudge.
Welcome to YGS.

Would it be possible that the lady was your neighbor after taking a shower in such a hot day?
The_Dark_Soul in The Girl Under The Tree
Thank you for this suggestion, itsdan4u.

DexterGregory in My Husband And The Ghost?
I have been dealing with this since I was a young boy. I am much older now. It comes and goes, usually just after I have fallen asleep, it feels so real, so physical. My ladyfriend has noticed to same things you mentioned, sheets moving up and down, rhythm strokes, slow rides, etc. My hands nowhere near my private area. It has never bothered me, sometimes I think whoever it is doesn't want me to have relations with whoever I am with. It comes more often now than before. We have watch a shadow leave the room a few times. Yes it has basically ruining our sex lives. Most of the time I think it is my ladyfriend is feeling frisky, but when I reach over she is facing away from me asleep. So then everything stops, and I rollover and go back to sleep.
[at] RCRuskin I don't think it was a dream/sleep paralysis because other family members have also heard/seen similar things in that house. I did try looking up the history, but there was nothing. I will try looking it up again. Thanks for your input!:)
Hi yaheeyahaa

From your story I take it that your family and friends have witnessed something or the other, do you perhaps know the history of the house? That might give you a clue whether anything happened there to suggest that your house is haunted.
Welcome, yaheeyahaa, to YGS.

Definitely a frightening thing to experience at any age. It sounds, to me, more like sleep paralysis or a hypnagogic experience. Which is not to say that it was not a ghost or haunting, just that I think it being a wakeful dream is more likely.

Thank you for sharing.
Dear Dirtyjerzambeez, Wow... It sounds like you definately saw Scott Tyler. Scott & I went to high school together (Class of '79 & we were friends (He played my 'dad' [at] my 'Mock Wedding lol). Scott was about 5'10, chunky & he had wavy auburn red hair (Styled like Danny Partridge) & he loved his Rugby shirts & he was one funny guy. We were all shocked when we found out he was the guy in the Rolling Thunder accident. I do have a few pictures of him - But I have no clue how to post them!
This, is a great True Paranormal experience. Thank you for sharing it. 👻p
