Ghost Encounter in Rural Maine

In the mid 1990s I was doing property preservation (securing foreclosed houses) throughout New England. I would be on the road for 3 days straight, some times in rural Maine. I would stay in the house I was at, at the end of a 14 hour day, to save money on a hotel.

This one house, in Hamden, Maine, keep in mind these homes have no utilities, all have been disconnected. This one house was a former large turn of the century farm house remarkably clean with fresh paint. I would seek out the higher rooms, usually the 2nd floor, because the days warmth would stay in those rooms longer. Even in the summer the nights can get brisk.

Anyway this night I fell asleep about 9pm, and suddenly I was awakened by the sound of banging on the front door down stairs. I was not in a good mood being very tired, from the days labor, and I hurried …

Cold Shivers in My Bedroom

This happened to me and my family back in 1991. I kept a diary of all the things that happened in our house and I’ve begun writing them in a collection of short stories. I’m just curious if this has happened to anyone else or if my imagination was just going crazy on me.

In 1991 we moved into a 4 bedroom house on the city fringe of Brisbane Australia. Of all the bedrooms in the house, my Mum, sister and me always felt cold shivers when we walked into one particular room of the house. The room to the door was right off the hallway. One night, my mum told me about a dream she had. She had gotten up to get a drink of water in the middle of the night and was raped by three men in their 50′s. In the dream, they grabbed her in the corridor and dragged her into my room where they raped …

Just Some Things I’ve Encountered

The first time I saw a ghost I was in first grade, after my Grandmother had passed. She came back to comfort me and my grandpa, so ever since I’ve never been surprised about ghosts or whatever you wish to call them.

We (my mother and myself) moved into an apartment. It seemed nice and quiet. Although after a while something just didn’t feel right. I always felt like I was being watched, so I would blow it off and turn on the radio or something .One night I went to bed, my mother already asleep, and while laying down something grabbed me by the ankle. I turned over, looked at my mom, and she was sound asleep. The creepy thing is I found out that a few years prior a man had killed himself on our porch. Thankfully we moved out of there.

Also, while living there I went to this little church. This pastor was talking about the …

I Believe My Child Sees Ghosts

I have been searching and searching and searching for every reasonable answer as to what is going on in my apartment and with my 4 year old child, Gigi. When Gigi was about 2 years old, there was an incident where Gigi bolted out of the downstairs bathroom, shaking, tears in her eyes and her voice was shaky as well. She kept repeating the name “Ralph”. She honestly scared the crap out of me and I didn’t know what to do besides prove to her that nothing was in the bathroom.

About 2 or 3 month later a strange incident occurred where the Airwick motion sensor freshener was on the wall. You can set the timer for these and I had it set to 36 minutes so every 36 minutes it would let out a small burst of freshener. One morning around 5am I heard a huge crash and went ran downstairs where I found the air freshener in the …

The Girl In White

My story takes place in the house I live in still to this day. My dad would say this is all in my mind, or I watch to much ghost movies, but I still believe there is something not right about my house. Here is my story!

When I was a 10th grader in high school my parents and I moved in with my sister and her daughter. I could always tell that something was not right about the stairs. Well when my sister had her son she was going down the stairs when she was pushed and fell with the baby it scared my sister, but she passed it off as she tripped. Soon after my mom fell down the stairs in the same that my sister fell. Some would say it was just the stairs, but when I fell down them I felt pushed and I know what I felt was real and not in my mind. When …

Demon in the Woods

This story has never been heard by anyone. I chose not to say anything because I know what happens when you tell someone you have seen a demon.

7 years ago when I was just 12 years old something happened to me that I will never forget. My life was altered that cold windy night. A few friends and I were playing hide and seek, like most little boys do. The neighbors did not care if we played in their yard, and there was a church next to that. We had plenty of room to play a good game of hide and seek, flash-light addition. It just so happened it was my turn to be the seeker. I had given everyone approximately 4 minutes to hide, we counted in the garage with the door securely shut. My 4 minutes were about up so I began my quest to find my friends, but that was not what I found at all.…

Helped an Elf to Give Birth to Her Child

Dear readers this is the story which happened in my mother’s family and has been quoted generation by generation. The story was said by my mother’s grandmother’s aunt. She told it to her children. I will tell her story here as below:

Many years a ago, when technology hadn’t been developed, in each community there were women who were skillful in helping women to give birth and they were called midwife. My mothers’ grandmother’s aunt was a midwife. She was a brave, cool, wise and contriver woman. It is quoted that in hard situations she tried to save both life of mother and infant. She also went to neighbor villages to help Lucina women. Coldness of weather, difficulty of ways and etc. couldn’t prevent her from helping Lucina women. She described the event for her children as below:

It was a cold and dark night. The wind ululated. No one was in the alleys. All the people were in their …

Civil Defense Shelter Hole Tacoma

I am from Indiana and I lived in ther Tacoma, Washington area 30 years.

Iwas sleeping in a boiler room under Tacoma Avenue in the basement of the Brant Apartment Building. I worked there as a painter, I had the room to myself, bars on the only window, 2 doors one steal door padlocked from the outside and a stick propping the inside, the other led to a room with a civil defense manhole cover and out through a broken down wall which I had covered with around 8 old doors to keep out the cold, that door to the room I was in was hook locked from the inside, the lights were out the wind blew cold and hard as the door squeaked open and the tone of male voices and the sound of soil scratching under their weight moved closer, they lifted the tarp I had over me, I stayed still, it changed shape like a leviathan?

I Thin I Saw My Grandmother’s Spirit

Just days after I turned 10 years old, I found out my grandmother had passed away. She was thought to have died in her sleep from either a stroke or heart complication (she had a heart condition we were aware of) the same night she and her husband (my grandfather) came back home from a trip.

It was the very beginning of the school year, the month of September and my parents, brother and I had to travel from Michigan to Quebec to attend my grandmother’s funeral. But it was not long until several strange occurrences began to happen.

One day during our stay in the condo, (which is where they lived) my mom had hung a bouquet of red roses upside down on the wall in my grandparent’s bedroom to dry them out. The next morning, my mom had noticed that the roses were placed on my grandmother’s bed faced up. She then had us go to that bedroom …

Strange Presence and Seeing Faces

I haven’t had any definite contact with the spirit world, or anything paranormal. I can honestly say that I don’t find that a bad thing. I’ve heard too many stories written by regular people who have had a bad time with ghosts. I am a believer, and this is an occurrence that has been happening to me in my bedroom at night.

Over the last two nights, after my parents have gone to bed, I have been feeling a presence in my room, somewhere t the foot of my bed. This has happened before, but it was never as strong a feeling as this time was, and it had only ever happened after I had watched a horror movie on ghosts or something. During the time this happened, I saw the imprints of white faces while my eyes were closed. The faces only showed the part that caught the most light, like the nose and forehead, and they looked like …
