Hello MackNorton,

Yeah, I get the message often to vote for someone else. 🀣Lol

I thoroughly enjoy your feed back and comments. I have been in stitches often reading your comments. You have a great sense of humour.

Thanks for your response.

Best wishes,
😘 ❀
Sleeping-With-Steve - FYI; I just GENUINELY up-voted your comment from MY sole profile!😁

PS: I often can't up vote LadyGlow because I'm always trying to but I'm advised to "vote for someone else" or in other words: "get out of your comfort zone mate!"! Maybe I need a few new, bogus accounts! πŸ€”
Sleeping-with-steve in Someone Or Something Moved My Hand
Hello Lady-Glow,

I can vouch for my sister and I. We do up-vote karma arrows once we read a comment so we know which comments we have read and to thank the members for there views. So between my sister and I, your karma along with others go up by whatever amount on that day.

With ssexxyca's account, I can't remember that, it is possible when your finger is close to the down arrow, down-votes occur. (Moderator- Miracles once told me to increase the page size, and I do 90% of the time) I have down-voted as a result of the arrow being tiny on my phone and if I'm tired laying in bed, I might press the wrong arrow. (Then the phone usually drops on my face because I'm half asleep and I correct my vote)

With increased points of large amounts, my guess is multiple FAKE ID's that have been opened precisely for that outcome.

If you notice, as my sister has pointed out:
1: Several new accounts recently.
2: Some new accounts reach the allocated 10 comments, along with 1 week timeframe before being allowed vote.
3: Small comments are posted just to get to minimum of 10 comments with little or no substance and then they vote, vote, vote until they achieve what they set out to.

I'm not accusing Lealeigh of this, I'm just saying there are a lot of new members doing this for whatever their reason and then they lay dormant in the system.

Anyway, you are a true detective. I've always said that. I admire you greatly despite not hitting it off with you to start with. Now that I know what I know and having read as much as I have, I really do respect your opinions as I do other members here on YGS.

Hugs to you Gloria
PS: I thought I'd bring this comment to my thread.
Moderators, If this comment is not appropriate, forgive me.

Macknorton in Voice On Tape
Hi ScareTale

Thanks for sharing that experience. Well written.

I recall the days of tapes and tape recorders. Seems like a loooong time ago now, however I still vividly recall capturing the sounds of a couple of mating Brontosauruses. No I'm not THAT old, it was probably some sabre-tooth tigers getting frisky actually...

This idea that spirits can somehow "record" themselves onto tape and other, more recent innovations, such as EVP, is fascinating.

I mean, what are the mechanics in being able to do that? First of all, they would have to either produce a sound wave, or vibration in the atmosphere that our ears couldn't hear, but an old tape recorder mic and tape could pick up. Or, they somehow create and then transfer that "sound" directly onto the tape itself. I mean, really? It just seems so incredibly complex and therefore unlikely.

However, there seems to be a plethora of genuine voices captured by these devices. It kind of does my head in πŸ˜•. We know so little...

Again, thanks for sharing.

Oh, and big ups to LadyGlow's thorough investigations into the weird and wild world of out of control karma points up and down voting. Intriguing indeed...πŸ€”

So, if anyone is thinking of voting me up, please don't, just donate my karma points to your favorite local charity.

Alternatively, just sit on them until after the next big plague that nearly devastates humanity when they can be used as currency.

Regards, and peace to all,

Honestly, the feeling I got at the time wasn't so much they wanted to listen to music as it was they just wanted to communicate with me. I'm the only person in that house that's ever made the effort to make contact and didn't say "screw this I'm out". My whole family has told me that the energy feels much happier when I'm there.
Hey [at] Rajine
The house is full of spirits. My great grandfather actually built it by hand after he returned home from the first world war. My grand father, his brother and sister were all born in that house. Only 3 families have lived in it. First my great grandfather, then he rented it to a couple for 4 years before my dad moved in back in the 70s. No [human] deaths have occurred in the home. I actually just submitted a story my mom told me I could tell, in it I do leave a little history of the land it's built on. Hopefully it gets published.
Also in regards to my voice story, I've talked to my dad about it and he said the voice I described soundS like his grandfathers (my great grandfathers) voice
ScareTale in Voice On Tape
Hey [at] lady-glow
You asked if the tape was used and I can say that the tape was brand new. My mom had bought a 3 pack from Wal-Mart along side the recorder. I had even opened that tape my self. So no chance of cross contamination.

Hello [at] Rajine
I actually texted her and got permission to start sharing her experiences as well. Now that I'm older and she sees how serious I am about the paranormal, she's finally started to open up to me about some things. And a few of them are quite terrifying.
Rajine in The Radio
You are right that does seem like a funny experience, perhaps whatever or whomever that spirit was, just wanted to listen to some music.
lady-glow in Voice On Tape
Welcome to YGS.

Hi ScareTale.

My first thought while reading the part with the voice was if the tape was new or if it had been used before and then "cleaned up" by recording silence. I remember doing exactly this!

But if there was some paranormal activity going on in the house, chances are that you got an EVP.

I think your mother's experiences are necessary to get a better idea of what was going on in your house.
Was she the target of the activity or did any other family member experience anything out of the ordinary?

Good read, thanks for sharing.
Hi again ScareTale

This was creepier than your previous story that I read also gives me a bit more clarity since you say that your house was built in 1918, over a century ago, imagine how many people lived and passed on there, surely it could be an accumulation of spirits.

Again your mums response really intrigues me, because usually disbelieving people would just brush it off as an active imagination, whereas your mum seems like she definitely believes you but whatever she experienced has really disturbed her to the point where she won't talk about it or even acknowledge it.
Rajine in Voice On Tape
Hi ScareTale

Ahhh yes the good old days, I'm pretty sure that you weren't the only one who played around with cassette tapes and recording funny voices and having a good laugh about it, back then I remember taping songs and listening to them over and over again just to write down the lyrics, oh and not to mention the wait for your favorite song to play on the radio in order to tape it and also the radio Dj talking over the song whilst you are trying to record it πŸ˜†, how easy it is now to just download lyrics and music.

It's amazing that you managed to record a supernatural voice that clearly on a tape voice recorder considering that people use much more high tech stuff, judging by your mom's reaction I'm sure she knew what it was and just didn't want to scare you, but please ask mom if she would share her experiences I'm sure that everyone would love to read them.
Hello CrimsonTopaz.

Thank you for the points, though your voting doesn't explain the exaggerated amount of voting that has been happening in recent times.

I remember Miandra mentioning some time ago, that the YGS system is programmed for a daily vote limit. I'm a very inquisitive person and had to see by myself, yes, the maximum number of votes allowed in a day is 50.
At this point I don't know how many of those 50 chances can be used to vote for only one person before getting the "please vote for somebody else" message... 2, 3 times?

Although I have no idea how many times one is able to vote for the same poster within those 50 votes, I'm sure its impossible to use it to vote 14, 20-something or even more times.

I have been observing and taking notes - yes, taking notes!- for few weeks. Let me share some of my findings:

- To begin with, the activity usually happens overnight, at least for me.

- My total karma has grown fast and furiously, (by 16 points since yesterday).

- There seems to be more than one account/person doing the activity.

- Some times they over do the up-voting, some other times the down-voting.

- Lealeigh seems to be the main target of this voting, though it has been directed to some other members.

- The night of June 6, Lealeigh's total karma was 1414 points

- The morning of June 7 her total was 1642 points... 1642, meaning that she got up-voted 228 times!?!?! - There's no way only one person/account can perform such a marvelous feat!
And this is only the last unexplained increase, on a previous occasion it went from 1097 to 1179 in only one night.

I'm not complaining neither forbidding people to vote, specially if they consider a comment to be worthy of acknowledgment, either positive or negative but, please don't down-vote just for the fun of it, like in the following example:

"ssexyca-104...months ago (2021-02-05)
Hi JoJo, four years living there, it only happened to us once, I am not sure about other hostellers. But we often hear heavy running footsteps running across the hallway, it is more active during midnight and the Hungry Ghost Month. I have a friend who was living alone at the end of the hallway that time experienced a whole other thing. One night, she was talking on the phone with her friend until late night, and while they were talking, she heard a girl's voice humming a song, and it happened for only a few second. Both she and her friend (in the phone) heard it. She told me that she might have been a passer by 😐"

The previous comment went from +4 to -11 in only one night, I voted it up once since then.

I don't know how many people are involved on this situation, but I'm sure that more than one account has to be casting all these votes.

Like I have said, I'm not asking anyone to stop voting neither pointing fingers at anyone in particular, just don't take it like a sport you have to excel at, nor use it like a revenge for whatever ill-defined reasons you might have.

Moderators, my apologies for this rant. Please delete if not appropriate.

Peace to all
ScareTale in The Witches Cackle
Dang, I literally just submitted a story of something similar that happened to my mom and sister. This gave me chills because of the similarities.
ScareTale in My Mom Let Me Know!
It's hard losing someone. And I love hearing stories like this.

That said, my dad had something like that happen to him. My dads Native American and as such is very involved in Native things. He became very close friends with another Native many years ago.
In 2007 his friend had a massive heart attack. Being Native they held a ceremony to honor his life. My dad put on his regalia but couldn't find what's called a medicine pouch that his friend had given him. It made my dad sad he'd lost it. The next morning he found the pouch sitting on his nightstand next to the bed. It made my dad very happy, not because he had his pouch but because he knew his friend had taken it and done that as one last joke and to tell him he was ok
ButterflyChaser in Lady On The Bus
re: Lilcat21310
I'd guess she was 20's to early 30's. Short hair. Plain clothing. There wasn't anything that stood out as being possessed. My first guess would have been mental illness if it weren't for her seeming to read my thoughts. What did stand out to me was that she was expressionless, staring off into space and muttering/babbling when I glanced at her.
Hi BiancaB,
I've always believed cats could see spirits, this story gives me more proof. Also I'm sorry for the passing of your great aunt. I actually had a cat pass away a year ago and my family believes her spirit roams are house.

I agree with you that she wanted to see you even if you couldn't see her. I don't have anymore conclusions besides your great aunt wanted to visit you,
Lilcat21310 in Lady On The Bus
Hi butterfly chaser,
Honestly I'm I bit confused like you are. I feel more towards her being possessed. I do kind of agree with bibliothecarius. But I'm aiming for possessed.
I'd like some clarification of the details about her including:
-Approximate age (best guess)
-What type of outfit she was wearing
-What did she look like overall

I really don't want to make a statement with out the info I listed above.

Hope you get to the bottom of this,
danielcrawfo30 in White Eye Entity
I liked the story. As one of the professional writers https://www.the-essays.com/professional-writers I can say that the author has good writing skills. The style was used appropriately and the structure is rather good
I've been upping your points galore and Melda, TRex, Jubeele, Valkricry and a few others. My sister told me to read all your situations and not just members from koala country. So I'm doing that, with great joy I might add. I understand your comment completely. This site is so helpfuul especially for new members like me in finding solutions to situations of the paranormal kind.
I know that points aren't what this site is all about and I don't even give my sister points just because she's family. If I read her replies I do give her points just like I do everyone else's replies.
You have always come across as fair and investigative with your replies. You're very straight forward and I enjoy reading your comments along with Melda, TRex, Jubeele, MacNorton, Rajine- my friend, RCRuskin, MrsRamsey and many others for that very reason.
Bibliography along with Valkricry, AussieGaz and few others are incredibly informative with their replies too and make me think of so much more than I normally would. Those are my reasons for upping the points. I believe the members here are amazing. I'm certainly not saying that the members I've mentioned are the only members that have credibility, I'm mentioning these members as these are the replies I've read to date over the past 2 years and mainly since becoming a member.
(Leighlea, excuse me for using your thread to reply to LadyGlow on a topic that has no relevance to your story).
PS: Congratulations to Meghan, Prince Harry and little Archie on the new addition to your family with baby Lilly Beth.
Anno_Domini in We Call Him Steven
Hi Mel-D72, I'm pretty sure that those 2 glowing shapes are the result of lens flare (I have a background in image editing). There are 2 sources of light (2 bulbs?) behind your daughter. You can also see evidence of the 2 sources of light in the 2 shadows on the floor by the door frame and below the chair. The fringing around the green glows (refraction of the 2 light sources) are also another phenomenon of lens flares.
Thanks for the interesting story. Guam does seem mysterious, especially because it's that island Congress is afraid will tip over one day!

Seriously though, my husband was stationed on Oahu as a Marine when younger, and he said he would have the most amazing feelings as he traveled throughout the island.

Come to find out (when I started doing our ancestry six or so years back) that he's descended from the old kings and queens of Hawaii... Had a NUMBER of them going all the way back in his tree, and even a family legend that the shark is the family's totem. His 6th great grandfather was the 23rd king of Maui and a number of them were on the losing side during the big battle at the Pali cliffs (and went over the cliffs). I feel like his ancestors (and all of ours too) influenced him when he was there. When I told him that his gg grandfather owned most of Waikiki beach and his great grandfather used to sit on his family porch and save the American sailors who would be trying to surf (and got in trouble) he stopped in his tracks. Apparently one day he had an experience in the water (even as a good swimmer) and felt as though someone "assisted" him in getting to shore. I think everywhere is filled with spirit, but exotic places seem so much more... Exotic. Thanks for your story.
Matilda sounds like IsabelleπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

I'd like to say I'm 95% sure that these experiences are from my cat Widget, are house is over 30 years old and as far as I'm concerned no one that has ever lived in my house passed away.
If I do have any more info I will do I part two like a said😐.
Hi Lilcat21310

Incidents involving spirits of animals have always fascinated me, it's good to know that perhaps Widget is still around your'll doing what she would have done when she was alive.
Hi BiancaB

Firstly I'd like to offer my condolences on the passing of your aunt

I believe that your aunt did see you one last time, was she close to you and your mom?
The videos were gone. Sayang. πŸ™„ must be really spooky if it was experienced by kids. Salamat.
Pinaynay in Baguio Hauntings
That is right, its always feel safe to stay in one room when everybody is feeling strange. Salamat.
I love your story, uncle cyril was a good hearted man and I believe he only wanted to show himself to you. Pray for him. God bless his soul.
Very nice story. Thanks for sharing. I felt the love within your family and the voice in your head that you experience, it happened to me too after the burial of my father but it was his thought (not really voice) my father sent message through thoughts. May your step mom rest in God's care.
Sorry about the double comment... I guess it's time for me to stop staring at the screen. LOL.
To whoever is upvoting Lealeigh's comments.

I know she deserves all the positive points in the world, and I would love if she could be active again but, don't you think that voting over 200 times in a row for her is a bit too much?

Please don't take it the wrong way but, in my opinion, by doing all this voting you are sending the message that "karma points" are a highly coveted commodity thus missing the purpose of this forum: to discuss and to exchange ideas, experiences and trying to understand the paranormal.

I know that these times are strange and people are getting creative finding ways to amuse themselves, but this shouldn't have a detrimental effect on ones health... All this staring at the computer screen cannot be good for your eyes.

Best regards.

Cats. Polarizing little so-and-so's aren't they? People either love 'em or hate 'em.😾

I have a cat called Matilda. I've never known anything so fickle. One minute she's purring against my leg (her food bowl's full, so WTF? I'm instantly suspicious and on edge) next minute she's sprinting away from me, terrified, as if I'm a stranger in the house. One minute she's lying down letting me scratch her belly, purring away, then suddenly all four claws and her teeth are embedded deep in my hand.

For weeks on end she will sit, early morning, outside my eldest sons' room, meowing pitifully to be let in, which I do, then a couple of weeks later it be my other sons' door. A few weeks later it will be my daughters' room and around and around it goes, so on and so forth. What the actual hell?

Anyway, enough cat-chat. Thanks for sharing, for me it's really hard to say if those occurrences are the spirit of your deceased cat, or another human spirit in your house messing with your stuff or just weird unexplainable coincidences that having nothing to do with ghosts at all.

But give me a dog any day! 😊


ButterflyChaser in Lady On The Bus
Where the lady was on the bus, I forgot to add that detail, but she was standing in the aisle next to my seat facing backwards. If she was looking at me at the time she spoke, she would have had a good view of my face.
If it got kitty's approval, then it was a good energy.

Did aunt Lorraine and the cat know each other? If so, did they like each other?

I agree with you, it seems like your aunt went to see you that night.

Thanks for sharing.
Piscesian in The Twin Sister
Hi Rajine,
Talking about Jinn, I read somewhere (I kind of forget but I think It was words by a muslim clergy) that Jinns are like human, there are the bad one and the good one. So there are those who likes to disturb human and there are those who arent. There's this story of a friend of mine, he is a mountain hiker. Once he told me, he went on a hike and he got lost. He didn't bring enough water because it was supposed to be a short hike. And he is familiar with the trek since he went on hiking on that same trek several times. That day, he strangely lost his way and he suddenly didn't recognize the trek. And when he was almost giving up, this man in white robe appears and waved at my friend, asked my friend to follow him. My friend instinctively followed him which lead him to a familiar trek and then the man disappeared. That's when he realized that the old man is the kind Jinn. And the one who got him lost, was the evil one (there's this kind of Jinn known as Oyot Mimang, by the mountain hikers in my area, Oyot is Javanese for Roots; it's kind of strange hanging root and when you happen to touch or see it, it will make you lost your way) this is just one example.
ButterflyChaser in Lady On The Bus
When I heard voices, my cat would look in the direction of those voices. I still don't have an explanation of how that could happen.
ButterflyChaser in Lady On The Bus
Most of the time I do figure my thoughts come from my own mind. I just don't like when some of my thoughts are mean, and some clash with my values. I try to rebuke those thoughts, but they are persistent sometimes.
Macknorton in Lady On The Bus
Hi ButterflyChaser,

My advice for you, for what it's worth, would be to assume that all your thoughts are bubbling up from YOUR consciousness. Who knows exactly where the source of all the thoughts comes from?

Yes sometimes we have strange or disturbing thoughts but these can be acknowledged for what they are, dismissed and sent on their way, thank you very much.

However, if you are finding that you are having more of these distressing or disturbing thoughts than you can cope with, then I suggest medical assistance / advice.

However, before resorting to "pills" etc, may I suggest, from personal experience, meditation as a great tool. It helps to still, and calm all that random, often unwanted and useless activity of an over-active mind.

I wouldn't trouble yourself worrying if people can read your mind, or whether thoughts are being put into your mind from an outside source. That's a rabbit-hole that you can go down and never find anything tangible.

Fill yourself with positive energy, fear not and know that you are protected at all times when your motive is good.


ButterflyChaser in Lady On The Bus
Let's say I am not crazy and if some people can really read minds, how do I block it? I like to keep an active thought stream in my head. Some thoughts are intrusive, but others I may be puzzling on deeper things, like concerns for humanity and sensitive topics. Dislike for political sides, etc. Stuff that I really don't want to have invaded.
ButterflyChaser in Lady On The Bus
Thank you for all your replies. I had at first thought it was in my head, but it was real. When I saw her her mouth was moving. My eye may have twitched a little and my mouth might have hid a grimace.

I did end up with different experiences but not the same as this lady.

I did go through a period of hearing voices but this was not like that, nor did I have such a thing happen before 2018 and then it stopped and happened again in 2019 before stopping again. I don't think that discredits this story. It does add a layer.

I have seen a psychiatrist and taking meds just in case.
I just looked again. How many locks are on that door? Why? The locks are bothering me more than the face!
Just popped back in to check if lajuanita has replied to any of these comments, and the OP has not yet replied.

But then I looked at the two photos again, and it is very hard to compare images that, while they may be of the same door, really don't have anything else in common.

Mrs. Ramsay, your comment makes me wonder if there is a poster behind the door.
To me it doesn't quite look like a reflection. It looks like something on the other side of the glass looking out. The head and body size reminds me of the depictions of aliens or "greys" as they're refered to. Very interesting, especially with that heavy looking padlock hanging from the door. Makes me wonder what's back there.
Travis, I think you may have got your wires crossed there my friend.

There's two separate instances the author is writing about.

1."One night, we had those shades that when you pull them, they roll up because we were in the process of ordering new ones. One night, in my room while I was asleep, they suddenly popped up."

2. "I was taking a bath and I always shut the door but when I was drying off, I saw it was locked, which I didn't do. I got locked in the bathroom and we had to call the landlord because my parents couldn't get me out."


That's pretty creepy, having to deal with hauntings at the same time as having to deal with such strong emotions surrounding your son's treatment for cancer. I sincerely hope he continues to do well and that he gets a full get-out-of-cancer-free card in 6 months time. ❀
MrsRamsay, I hope you are well. Positive feedback-this story has 2 dreams in it. I know this is not a dream site, but thought butthead orb guy was pertinent to our story and hope no one gets irritated with us going off-script of YGS. We moved from mirror home early 2014 and have since lived in 5 different places. We have sold a couple of homes and bought a couple. Not bragging, the moving around might cause some confusion with my stories. We bought a view lot, had custom home built, and lived in it for 2 1/2 years. Due to Covid concerns, we sold it in Summer of 2020, bought this smaller home with RV parking and now I'm retired. We have our first garden growing, have made our front and back yards our oasis of flowers, with bird feeders, and watching the squirrels, pigeons, and a mouse picking up what's fallen is entertaining. If we have a nightmare we make sure to talk about it right then, so in the morning we can remember the visit. I love the orb with arm around you. In my opinion, in death you go outwards not upwards. I have 1 last story left and I will be current. I finally filled in the Bio on this site. Take care! Wife edited.
Chaningham91 in Haunted Children's Ward
Thankyou everyone for your comments. 😊

Macknorton... I have had similar experiences before.
When I was younger, I used to see a man & woman stood staring at me all the time. No expression on their faces & always in the same place against a wall. They were always together. I never saw the man without the woman & vice versa. They never gave me a bad vibe either.
As I grew older I've heard voices, had things moved. Heard footsteps. Just subtle things really, but whoever they are they're making them selfs known lol.
There are loads more but I'd be here all day πŸ˜†
I just realized something after I posted. I have a photo of a man's face in an orb. Am pretty certain it's my deceased husband who was tagging along for our tour of the Marine Corps Museum when it first opened in Virginia. We stopped to take a family photo outside and I remember initially being so disappointed that the photo turned out so blurry. A couple years later, when I realized I could see paranormal type things in photos, I saw the orb resting on my head (which I initially thought was a twinkling light of the building behind me) and a partially formed arm sort of around my neck. If you look real close, you can see the face in the orb. Not scary though, just a loved one.
Oh my, you ask for positive feedback? I always enjoy your posts (edited by your kind wife).

I'm laughing in delight at specifically two points in your story yet cringing at the rest, it's really scary. First, trying not to get a song stuck in your head just cracked me up. When I wake at night to use the bathroom (sometimes a couple times if I couldn't hydrate until evening, tmi, sorry) I almost always have some random song in my head. I think I count it as a blessing though. Because if I focus on that, I can't notice other things. Like orbs. Or men's faces in orbs. OMG, scary. And the dreams, yes, scary too. I have told my husband I think that the songs in my head at night is a coping method I've had since young, same as when I wake up at night I rarely look around or even up, I look down while walking to the bathroom and try not to see. I'm 60 and never even realized I do that until just a few years ago.

Oh, the second funny thing: eye booger. If the bad man ever attempts to scare either of you again, you should call him out as an "eye booger." Tell him to get away from you, please, he should not be there. Good luck with your insomnia, in all seriousness. I have also had similar dreams, mostly when I started living in this house, never really before. It gets scary when your kid tells you about a dream that is almost the same. I still have not figured out what to do about these strange dreams, which are very infrequent, so am looking forward to reading the advice you get. PS is this a different house than the one with the mirrors? I might've missed that part.
Hi Chantelle

Thanks for posting these experiences, and good to hear your son is on the upward path to recovery. You write very well so I was able to immerse myself in this hospital, and your experiences.

One of the questions that often arises for me, when examining spirit / ghost interactions, is WHY do they do what they do?

The humming lullaby could well have been a "residual haunting"; that is when an event (often traumatic, but not always) is somehow imprinted in the ether around us and gets replayed to, or experienced by, a flesh and blood human. However, it could also have been a spirit deciding to hum a lullaby in your vicinity, but why?

The flushing toilets and tap turning trick is one that seems to be a relatively common theme in supernatural encounters. If taken for granted that it must require a lot of energy, skill, determination for spirits to interact with this material plane, then then for me the question again arises; why? Why would a spirit go to the trouble of turning on taps, and flushing toilets for another persons benefit?

Surely if they wanted to scare someone, they could do a good old fashioned materialization, or hurl objects around. Flushing a crapper is a bit...well, lame? I agree that the subsequent whispering in your ear is turning it up to another level though. If this spirits desire was to simply frighten you then, well done you invisible a-hole!πŸ™„

My questions don't require answers; I'm merely expressing equal parts of puzzlement and wonder at this kind of phenomenon that we currently Earth-bound humans struggle to understand the mechanics of.

Have you ever had any other kind of psychic experiences/ interactions prior to this hospital stay?


Also just wanted to add, your writing is very mature for your age, congratulations on that. You must be a very good student!
Hi Kittens,
As a mom of a girl about your age, I understand how boring this year has been and wanted to say congrats on your creativity. I watched a lot of your You Tube and had an observation and a question.

First, at about 5:15 on the video, a message "I am as dead on the outside as I am inside. RIP 2020" comes on the screen. Since you've inserted other cute fonted writing in your video, I'm assuming that is your work also. What does it mean? It's a little spooky to me because it doesn't match what you and your friend are doing at all!? Frankly, it seems like a bit of a cry for help, or intentionally trying to be scary despite your activity. I don't mean to put intent in for you, just relaying how it impressed me when I saw it. Can you explain?

Second, I was trying to replicate something I saw at the 8:52ish mark, but was unable to. When I slowed down your video, to half motion and then even slower, there is an anomaly sort of forming on the wall just behind your right elbow. First it looks like a blur coming and going, barely. Then it looks like the shadow of your elbow when it pops up, but I cannot seem to find the same thing anywhere else in the video, even though your elbow pops up a lot. One can see your vague shadow on that wall when you move throughout the video, but it's a much lighter brown vs. This short black shadow figure. Because you have on a black sweater, it really does look like the shadow of your elbow, until you play it back very slowly and you see it pops up and then back down BEFORE your elbow goes back down. I don't know what it is, but the pretty colored glitter slime you were making was probably very intriguing, especially if it's a little girl.

If I were you though, I would not acknowledge it in any way. I hope at your age, you will tell your mom if you haven't already and be careful posting videos of yourself on line. I do not think you should be concerned, but just do not engage.

I'm in agreement with Biblio, and have a couple questions.

Do you recall whether your mouth or your eye REALLY did twitch when she called you out? Did she really see and direct her comment at you, or was she just ranting?

This sounds like something out of a horror movie to me, yikes. You intuitively ignored her, and I hope you never see her again. I'm one of those people who talks to everybody, and am afraid I'd be sucked right in. Yikes again. But, good for you on what you said. I believe you do not have to be a religious expert to call on a higher power for protection.

WTF! πŸ˜†

I know this one is old but boy it's frigging fake

One night, in my room while I was asleep, they suddenly popped up. I was taking a bath and I always shut the door but when I was drying off

Dude u must be a sleepbather πŸ˜† 😜
When you saw him at work out of the corner of your eye, how close was he?

Are you certain it was the same man? Does he seem aware of you or looking elsewhere? Was he as close as when you thought you saw him at work?

Sorry for all these questions, but maybe if you think about them, something will come to you. I'm interested.

Also, how white was the suit? Seems to be something only Col. Sanders would wear... Or a groom from the 70s. OR, could it be a Naval Uniform? Are you near water or a naval base?
I definitely see the face. Did you see it at the time, or just when you looked at the photo?

I often see faces that seem smaller than a real person, but have never noticed one like this that is larger, interesting. Stay safe!
One final comment a year later... I was just going over my stories tonight.

I just googled the verses of the hymn "Jesus Loves Me" and they are NOT the same as the verses for the old people that were in the message. Someone made them up! Whomever wrote me the message, maybe an angel, who knows, gave these great verses and as far as I can tell, well, I cannot find them anywhere else.
Thanks for sharing that, Chaningham91. It must have been a very difficult time for you but I'm sure the future for you and your son is brighter! So many difficult emotions in hospitals, no wonder so many are haunted.
Breaghboo in Ww2 Mortuary
Rajine You have reminded me we (my husband and I) have experienced this in our own 150 year old cottage but on the window, not the door. Our cottage is also up a drive with nowhere to hide and on running to the door after hearing these knocks and opening it no one has been there. This happened many years ago (we've been here 31 years) three times in a short period but never since. Interestingly we were told by locals that a long time ago a "healer" of some kind lived in the cottage surrounded by fields (still is) and agricultural workers injured in the fields would come here and knock for medical attention and he would patch them up, way before our national health service! He sounded like a very kind man. He had a tiny surgery at the end of our house, now our study. We have had many cats over the years and they have always loved the study. Must get good vibes!
Rajine I have had only 2 spirit crossings in Idaho in over 5 years. This one was in large apt complex. I feel this orb was a local wanderer. But will never know. I've had 1 crossing in this home been here 10 months. Don't believe I have a follower. Take care. 😊
Hi Chaningham91

Welcome and I pray that your son makes a full recovery.

Hospitals generally will have restless spirits, thankfully your experiences weren't malevolent in nature.
Hi cantunSEEit

Scary but interesting experience you had, do you think perhaps whatever it was followed you to your present home?
MrsRamsay in The Murder House
Hello all and thank you for the observations. I did not realize the story was posted until today.

It would be worth following up with my Realtor friend, but I don't want her to think I'm crazy, so will have to tread gently! I knew about the murder because I worked at the newspaper, but no details, except those from the Realtor, as I relayed. LightMight, you're correct. The photo was taken by a real estate photographer and was published on the internet as part of the house listing. The home's been purchased and the new owner put up a large privacy fence, so you can no longer see it from the street. I just looked it up and the owner is a personal trainor, but I would never want to follow up with them, as much as it would be interesting.

I don't get a great feeling from the photo either, but I have seen others that made me gasp and turn away, so putting it in perspective...

Thank you for offering comments. PS, we are in a very historic area as relates to the Civil War, but this image doesn't take me there.
Thank you Rajine. And yes I am a firm believer in signs form our loved ones. I always ask my Gramma for advice. If I am making the right decision she comes to me in the smell of her perfume.
Rajine in Ww2 Mortuary
Hi Breaghboo

Yes however it in my experience it was knocking, 3 distinctive knocks and then silence and on both occasions I opened the door only to find nobody there 🀦🏻
Breaghboo in Ww2 Mortuary
Rajine. I take it you mean "phantom" doorbell ringing has happened to you? I don't think it's that uncommon but it is something that I find very eerie.

Rex-T. I didn't think of that - that lots of airfields would have made the area a target for bombs. Makes sense. Thanks for the link.
You're right - in my mind, spooked animals are usually a big giveaway that something paranormal is afoot!
BaiAnina in The Murder House
Hi Mrs Ramsey, I hope you're doing fine.

The photo, for some reason, does not make me feel safe 😨 I could feel a certain energy come off it and I do not really want to zoom in because of it. Reading your story, it makes sense. Regardless of what could've been the history, the vibe I'm getting from it feels unnerving somehow. Interesting find though. There aren't many photographs of places that gives me that feeling!
Rex-T in Ww2 Mortuary

According to the link below, there were numerous airfields, serving as bases for the US Air Force during WW2 in East Anglia. There are other articles indicating RAF (Royal Air Force) bases as well.


It is quite possible that your assumptions are correct.

No doubt that East Anglia's close proximity to the European mainland and that allied air raids were launched from these airfields would have made them a target for bombing.

Always a good indicator that something is "not quite right" when an animal starts behaving out of character, like your sister's golden retriever.

I can only hope that your sister's occasional visitor can eventually find their way home.

Hi KittenscanFly2

I'd admit that my first thought was: it's your cousin. But when I replayed the video from 8:50-8:54 a few times, I saw that her mouth was closed at the time. The voice sounded a bit like her to me, but slightly higher in pitch; maybe a "younger girl's voice", as you said. Is it possible there was another person nearby, whom you didn't notice, watching you off-camera? I did notice that the black cat behind the device shifted position at the same time the other voice was heard. Not sure if it was reacting to some other presence in the room.

Are you able to find out about the history of your house? For instance, who used to live there? Did they include a man and a young girl? Could it be someone or something mimicking your cousin's voice, taking an interest in your activity and wanting to join in?

Your cat's reaction to the jingling bells was interesting. I tend to trust more the instincts of animals, as they have sharper senses than ours. The growling does seem to indicate that the cat felt threatened at the time. Whatever it was, it was unsettling enough for your mother and yourself to seek refuge in the bathroom until the jingling stopped.

Maybe the jingling sound was wind chimes. In many cultures, sound plays an important part in spiritual matters and many places of worship use bells, music, singing and chanting to dispel negative energies. In Chinese feng shui practice, wind chimes have been used because they have a pleasing sound and create a happy environment. My family has conflicting views of their effect though. I had an aunt who believed that wind chimes chase away evil spirits, while my mum is of the view that they attract spirits who like their sound!

Perhaps something nasty was lurking around that night, and someone used the sound of jingling chimes to chase it away? Or were the chimes like a warning for you to be on your guard? Just a few thoughts that came to me when I read your account. Take care and stay safe.

Hi Tweed:)
Great story, what a strange thing to happen!
I imagine you must be a pretty good pianist - a grand piano is quite an investment (considering all I can do is Mary had a little lamb, I don't think it's worth it!😁)
Learning how to tune is amazing. Let us know anything else that goes on. You don't think anything is attached to the piano at all? It wasn't second hand was it?... Just a thought that popped in my mind.
Thanks again! 😊
Rajine in Ww2 Mortuary
Hi Breaghboo

I've experienced the very same thing twice in my life, I've posted it on YGS as well, it's one of my older stories, the first time it happened I was alone and during that time I just lost my grandfather, the second time I wasn't alone and everyone who was with me heard it, thankfully, or they'd think I'm just going crazy.
Hi KittenscanFly2

Firstly I'd like to say very interesting experiences, apart from you and your mum who else lives with you? Also the house you living in, were there any other previous owners who perhaps passed on in your house? If so I'd guess the voices you and your cousin heard could be them.

As for the jingling sound you heard I'm also stumped about what it could be.
Rajine in Lady On The Bus
Hi ButterflyChaser

If that happened to me I'd also be unnerved, I'm assuming that since you could hear this woman's voice, it had to be coming from a general direction, were there perhaps other ladies around or was it just the one you glanced at?
Hi Piperasc

Condolences to you and your family for the loss of your mum, this pandemic really has been devastating across the world.

I believe that our loved ones are always with us no matter what and your bracelet reappearing after you could not find it anywhere is confirmation that the people who have passed on are always around and guiding us.
Hi Kfergie

You say that this man wears a white suit, are there any other distinctive features that would set him apart suggesting that maybe he could have around during WW1 or even from 35 years ago?, can you guess his age from the way he looked? I think your answers are in the details.
Rajine in Haunted Tree
Hi Sushmi

Very interesting incident you experienced, personally I wouldn't want to communicate with this spirit, you say that she's only around the tree, do you know if anyone else had tried to communicate with her?

Also what happened to her husband?
lady-glow in Ww2 Mortuary
Hi Breaghboo.

Thanks for replying.

In such case, I wonder if the knocker was a departed gentleman trapped in the time of his passing, checking on the family, whom he perceived, had no man to take care of them.

In my opinion, it seems like this spirit didn't mean any harm, but it must have been very unnerving for your sister to open the door and see no one there.
Breaghboo in Ww2 Mortuary
lady-glow. I only said I wouldn't comment because I didn't think there was much else to say, but no, I don't think it did ever happen when he was home. I never considered that aspect before.
Thanks for your comment.
Berggraf38 in Lady On The Bus
Hi Butterflychaser,

I've had at least one experience of my mind being "read" by a schizophrenic person. It was very surprising and disturbing at first. From my studies of Indian and Tibetan spiritual practices though, I remembered a passage where the author said that many people have "supernatural" powers and use them (either knowingly or unknowingly) with varying levels of maturity and responsibility.
Timothy Leary (who was once one of the most respected psychologists in the world) wrote that many schizophrenics can see through the artificial "insulation" of everyday social conditioning and "see" what people are really feeling.
The way I dealt with my fear from my experience was to realize that though it can be scary that some people (or spirits) have abilities like this, spiritually mature beings don't use such powers for evil and that spiritually immature beings don't have the strength to affect you unless you allow them to.
lady-glow in Ww2 Mortuary
I know you are not willing to participate in the discussion but, do you know if this knocking ever happened when your BIL was home?

Nice read.
Thanks for sharing.
Macknorton in My Mom Let Me Know!
It must be heart wrenching for those who have passed over and are very close to the loved ones, to see them hurting and mourning; filled with sadness for their perceived loss.

These passed over souls, in my opinion, are probably more "alive" than we are, free from their physical bodies, gravity and all our Earthly physical issues.

So it's really great when they make an effort (which can't be easy?) to reassure those loved ones that not only are they still well and truly alive, but also always nearby and that they still love us very much.

Thanks for sharing.

Macknorton in Lady On The Bus
Hi ButterflyChaser,

Thanks for posting this incident. My train of though is akin to Biblio's on this one so forgive me if it appears I'm merely re-stating an opinion.

Based on what you've described, in my opinion, there's two possibilities here; internalized creation or external source.

If you DIDN'T see this woman actually physically talking to you then it could be that you've had these voices in your mind and they are a creation of your own consciousness. This is possible.

Yes, it's theoretically possible that this person was not only reading your mind, but also putting thoughts into your mind, but to me, that's highly unlikely / unusual.

It's possible an spirit entity (not that woman) was "speaking to you", but as Biblio said, if that's not something you've experienced before, then it's either your first psychic experience, (which can be unnerving) or it's a manifestation of your own subconscious mind.

If you DID see her physically talking to you then that's a whole OTHER thing going on. That would be PROOF that she was reading your mind and physically addressing you. That's would be some freeeaky sh*t right there if that was the case! πŸ˜†

All the same, it's a fascinating account which has multiple possibilities to consider.


Bibliothecarius in Lady On The Bus
Greetings, ButterflyChaser, and Welcome.

You state that this took place "around 2019." Have you had similar experiences at any point since then? If you have not, then it's far less likely to be a medical/mental condition. If you have, I'd recommend seeking out a psychologist or therapist to determine stresses or circumstances that trigger the event.

The way you've described the situation, it does sound like a hostile spirit manifestation, but I wanted to be sure you did not need professional help first.

Thank you Aros and valkricry for your kind words. It definitely brought me some peace for the situation.

Aros, yes life long and long into eternity for sure! I love that your friend still has his Stiller (as we say in Pittsburghese) gear on! BLACK AND YELLOW FOR LIFE.

Hello Sushmi,

You want to communicate with the lady... What do you want to say?

It's very sad she and her innocent child were murdered.

Did they ever arrest the husband?

I've read a similar post somewhere, maybe even on YGS. I wonder if it's about the same lady and her child. Maybe other locals have posted their sightings online too.

May she and her child RIP

Thank you for sharing your experience.

Best wishes,
Yes brother jojorocks... India is indeed a land of wonders... You can see maNy fascinating tales... Come and pay a visit and you will fall in love with it
valkricry in My Mom Let Me Know!
What a lovely, but sad event in your life. It's hard loosing a parent no matter your age. The circumstances just make it a bit worse, I think. Obviously she loves you very much.
First of all I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing, especially under those awful circumstances. I think you've left little doubt your mom gave you a very clear message that she knew you were there at her graveside and the gestures of love you showed.

I also understand the diehard passion one has to their lifelong team. I am a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan (all my life, looong before Russell Wilson and a Lombardi) and I lost a dear friend who was a diehard Steelers fan. So whenever he pops in during a contact dream he's wearing his Steelers jersey. So the passion extends into the afterlife. 😊

Thank you for sharing and again, so very sorry for your loss.
I would look closer into the history of your home. When was it built? You said an old man died in that house. Do you know anything more about him? As for ruling out that it couldn't be him because he died 35 years ago really doesn't have any bearing on the spirit world. Spirits can haunt a location for centuries and there's much evidence of this being the case.

As for guardian angels, they don't require your belief in them, they certainly believe in you. 😁

tomrjimmy - part of the "job" of a moderator is to follow the guidelines for removing posts. We don't do it on a whim. Sometimes comments from other members are deleted along with the original comment to keep things from being too confusing.

I believe I can say with certainty that the deleted comments have nothing to do with insecurity.

For your reference, I have included a link to the Comments Section. I'm sure you'll find a reason or two the comments were deleted.

OK, thanks for letting know. So the moderators are good in cleaning s*it 😁

Looks like they are experienced enough! Keep it up!

Hello TomrJimmy,

You are misinterpretating members comments somewhat. No one is making fun of you. In all honesty, what started as you sharing your experiences has turned into a verbal battle of sorts.

Have a break, involve yourself in something positive and try and relax.

I'm so sorry you are hurt and upset.

My thoughts are with you.
