My New Apartment
I had just gotten a new apartment, I loved it so much. I had friends come over until late and then go home. It was the life. After a while, I stopped doing that for a while, because it was hard to be happy when one of those girls just got diagnosed with cancer.
So, anyway, I was sitting on the couch watching TV when I heard a crash in the kitchen. I don’t have any pets, so I thought someone was breaking in. When I walked in, I saw a little girl about 8 or 9 just stare at me like I did something wrong. She looked very, very sad. But, I didn’t know she was a ghost.
This happened for about two weeks with plates and mugs that I decided to move out. I moved in with my boyfriend, Justice, but, still, the little girl would just sit on the couch staring at me. “What do you want?” …Read Complete Story Here...
My Father Came by in Spirit to Say Goodbye
It was April 2, 1990 in the evening. I live in a trailer with my mother who is divorced, while my father lives in Monroe, Louisiana while we in Baton Rouge.
Anyway I was only 17 in junior year, I was sitting in chair or whatever I sat on, it’s been a long time ago, I was watching TV and doing homework at the same times because I hate math.
I feel something touch my right shoulder and look to my right nothing there just window and wall and no vent and window closed for good with a lock. I been wonder but it’s feel like tapping like if something try to get my attention, so I went back to my business. Any how my mother came in my room and said Tracey come in the living room with me and I notice her face look like she been crying. I put down my homework and went to follow her …Read Complete Story Here...
In roughly 2006 or 2007, my family went to Doolin, Co. Clare for a week long stay in a two story house. We traveled 3 hours to get there, and we were all tired so we had a quick dinner, chilled out for a while and all went to bed. I was exhausted after being stuck in a car pretty much all day, so I fell asleep quickly.
In the middle of the night, I awoke and to my shock saw a woman standing in the window, looking out. She had her back to me and was transparent, wearing an old fashioned dress that was white. I sat there for the next few minutes, paralyzed with fear. I eventually summed up the courage to run out of bed and through the door into the hallway. I had a terrible night, and slept late the next morning. I told everyone at breakfast and they all believed me, because there have been …Read Complete Story Here...
The Woman and the Well
I am from India. I went on a tour to kerla along with my parents; I am the only child for my parents so I spend most of my time alone cause my parents are really close to each other and would not leave each other at any point of time. We stayed in a guest house where no one else stayed except we and the guest house workers.
I was once waiting for our taxi to come and pick us up from the guest house for site seeing. I love photography and was passing my time clicking pictures. I saw a lady on the other side of the road smiling at me and staring at me continuously. I smiled back to her as she looked very normal to me. She asked me to come near her. I was about to go cause I was just 14 or 15 years and was very free and playful with everyone. Then she …Read Complete Story Here...
My Little Demon Jose
Two years ago I lived in this very nice home. My dad was a horrible man who went to jail because of what he did. One day I was in the living room doing my homework when I kept hearing “Aurora Aurora help.” I didn’t know what to do. I was scared and I couldn’t move! Then I heard things get pushed on the ground in the Den (upstairs) so I started screaming.
My older brother and his wife came running in from the back yard hearing my screams. “What’s the matter?” my brother said. I just keep looking at the stairs. Oh one important thing is my brother is a cop so he thought someone broke in and ran up stairs. My brother walked quietly up the stairs. My aunt held me rubbing my back. My brother came down and told me there was nothing. After that I started sobbing hard.
My mom left for 2 weeks to my …Read Complete Story Here...
Rosemary’s Story of Possession
Hi I am a fan of paranormal activity etc… And I do plenty of my own research (being a psychologist I know how to do good and valid research).
After reading Rosemary’s story ( My Experiences With Demons ~ A True Story of Demonic Possession ) I realized too a few things. First of all she is at risk of having many problems with evil spirits because she has “opened a way for them to inhabit her” communicating with any spirit is bad for you!
I don’t believe those are your relatives. They may have been demons that lived in your relatives that’s why they know them so well. Demons pretended to be people we know! You need to stop altogether communicating with the spirit world even ‘good spirits’ please!
Then tell them you know that they are demons and that your relatives are dead and are in hell or heaven and that they do not have the power to …Read Complete Story Here...
Haunted Hotel in Toronto
This was one year ago.
When I was in grade seven, my class went to Toronto for a week. We stayed in a hotel (sorry but the names foggy).
On the first night I was in a light sleep when I heard a screech as loud as a plane right in my ear but when I woke up nothing was there except my three sleeping roommates. I tried to go back to sleep but I heard heavy breathing coming from the bathroom. I finally got so tired that I fell asleep.
This happened to be at 3:00 am which no joke is known as the “devils hour” where I live.
The next day I told my friends, which of course didn’t believe me. When we were going to the mall I fell asleep on the bus and had the most frightening dream of my life. I was at the door of the bathroom in my room. In the bathroom there …Read Complete Story Here...

My Very Own Demon 2
You may have read my other story: My Very Own Demon. This is another story of all of my occurrences, and I ‘m still the only one that ‘s having this happen to me. This is all true, a little corny at times, but all true.
For a while the activity had stopped, and I had thought that my actions to get rid of it for good were working. Well, I thought that until it started happening again, only this time they were 10x worse.
I’ve been having weird dreams lately. They usually involved this black shadow standing in my bedroom doorway, and then begin to move towards me, only I would wake up before it would reach me, but recently it has been reaching me. I would be in my dream, and the Shadow would be there, it would drift to me, and then it would engulf me in a black shadow. I would feel sharp pain and …Read Complete Story Here...
A Scary Life Time
Since I was a child I have always known that other things exist. Since the age of six I can remember strange occurrences and I would report this to a parent and they would just think I was being a kid. As the years went on things never changed, odd occurrences and getting told that I am imagining it by adults.
I was 23 when I met my wife and we got a home together. It definitely followed as I knew it would. Odd things happened. The usual. Since we had our first child things have really stepped up a gear. When my little girl was 3 months old she was in her cot and something pulled the hood of the cot over her face and hooked it under her chin. I have tried to replicate this myself and it takes a lot of strength. I could barely do it and I am a weightlifter and the only other person …Read Complete Story Here...
My Family’s Ghost Stories
Over the years my family has seen some strange things, but most have been seen by my mum and I. I live in Goulburn, Australia. Here are some of the stories I will share with you
my ghost stories
1. This is probably the first paranormal experience I had. I was about 3 years old. One night my mum and I came home from a holiday and I was happy to be home until that night. It was about 9 pm and I was just about to fall asleep until something caught my attention. About 2m away from my bed on the far wall I saw what I could only explain as a white dancing figure. The figure was about 12 inches high and was a glowing white. Of course I screamed and my mum came in a few seconds later. When I told her she believed me because she had seen ghosts before.
2. When I was 8 years …Read Complete Story Here...
Black Figure and Growling Dogs
It was like 1.30 am and I was in bed laying on my back but had a pillow under my head. I seen something it was like in the hallway at my bedroom door it was sneaking a look in my room. I had 2 foxy dogs with me they started to growl, I didn’t feel safe. I actually thought I had someone about to come in a hit me with a bat (stranger). The dogs growled the whole time this was happening.
I didn’t look straight at it as I was scared but it was in my sight it went blurry and came closer and formed into a figure again at my chest of door right near the bed I was so scared I went stiff. (dogs growling still) then it went into a blur and moved up right beside my head. I knew it was bad. I turned my head to the right and looked straight at it …Read Complete Story Here...

My Spirit or What I Think to Be
Hi there, just asking why spirits are most active during the night or afternoon, but rarely in the morning.
My spirit is a girl, about 16 years of age, I have no idea why she’s here, or what she wants, but she is very protective of me.
Eg: if I’m in my room, by myself, and my mother yells at me from 2 hallways up to put my washing in the laundry, almost immediately the energy in the room springs up as for me to be very cautious on what I do. So in this case, she gets angry easily and loves to open my doors in my room which is really annoying, because I have a fear of keeping my right wardrobe door open. I have no idea why, but I go into hysteric panic attacks when someone leaves it open or something opens it.
As I am a very light sleeper, and have DSPS (delayed sleep phase syndrome) …Read Complete Story Here...
