Phone Call From The Dead
Okay so Mia died a few months ago and today it was very rainy and the lightning was striking. And then my home phone began to rang. It beeped so loud. So I picked it up and saw it was Mia’s number. And the number has been disconnected ever since she died. And then she said, “Hello James.” I said, “Who is this?”. And then the random voice said, “Mia.” I freaked out and hung up.
I unplugged the phone from the wall and then it rung again. I did not answer and then it went into voice mail and it said, “James, why will you not answer the phone, I really miss you.” I was scared and then the phone went off after her message. So I plugged the phone back into the wall.
I thought Mia would not call again but then the next day the phone rang again. I picked it up and said, “Why do you …Read Complete Story Here...
Crouching Ghost Girl
I live in a two-story apartment around Oxnard. I live with my mom, dad, and sisters. I always had encounters with something I can’t explain. It usually happens some nights in my room. So many stories to tell.
Well one night I got out of bed, it was 9:00 pm. I headed down-stairs with my sister to grab a glass of water. Half way down i caught something in the corner of my eye. A tall shadow walking to the living room. It didn’t walk, it just somehow smoothly “glided.” I ran back upstairs and went in bed.
In another night I was watching TV. My sisters were sleeping and I decided to turn off the TV and all of a sudden the door started shaking loudly. There was no breeze coming in or out of my room. I got frightened and tried to sleep quickly.
Later, in the middle of the night, I woke up to the sound of …Read Complete Story Here...
Gargoyle Demon Encounter
Ok, I’ve always kinda been sensitive and could feel, hear, and see things since I was a little girl. Some people might say I have a good imagination. The absolute scariest encounter I’ve ever had was when I was 19 it was a few months after I had my son.
I’ll explain how my room was kinda set up so you can better imagine what it was like. I had my bed in a corner but it was at an angle coming from the far corner of the room. I had no frame to set my bed on so it was sitting on the floor.
Now, mind you my son is about 2 1/2 to 3 months at the time. He had his own room but every time I would lay him in his bed at night whether he was awake or fast asleep I couldn’t leave him in the room for more than a few minutes because he would …Read Complete Story Here...
I Am a Sleeping Psychic
I have been able to talk with the spirits of dead people pretty much all my life, as a child I did not understand what it was, and was terrified of going to bed and the dark.
It got much more intense after my father died when I was 23, and I wanted to see him so much. I began first dreaming and actually have relevant conversations with my father. Then I think it opened the way for other spirits that had something to say… It began getting strange, and I was dreaming of different spirits talking to me every time I went to sleep. One told me his grave had been opened, there he was sitting in front of me in an old dark suit and a hole in his forehead. And sure enough the next morning in the news near my hometown a mausoleum of a civil war era plantation owner that had been shot in the head …Read Complete Story Here...
The Empty Hanger
I found this site whilst googling for a car part and ended up reading a few submissions. It reminded me of something that happened to me on the 8th May 2006, which I recorded on my LJ blog. I’ve copied it and pasted it below. This account is 100% true:
Today I was an airfield called Throckmorton in Worcestershire. We use this airfield as a training site for driver training, and I keep a number of the Training Fleet there – primarily stored in Hanger One. This is not my first visit to Throckmorton; I’ve been here three or four times previously.
At about 8:30 this morning I let myself in and, because the rain was hammering and the wind was blowing, I closed the large roller-shutter door behind me. Today Hanger One has twelve 4×4 vehicles of various makes all parked in a line, their rears about a metre away from the hanger wall. Ten minutes later I’ve got …Read Complete Story Here...
Drawn to Houses with Ghosts and Other Strange Happenings
I remember having paranormal experiences as a child but my mom has seemed to have been drawn to houses with ghost and other strange happenings going on. Let me begin when I was about 11 or near the age of 12.
We moved into an old house outside of Pageland, South Carolina. It was a cute and comfortable little house but there was a couple of things wrong there. A woman had died in the back bedroom of the house where my sister slept and a man was brutally shot to death in the kitchen. His guts were blown out by a 12 guage shotgun. There was a party with drinking and it got outta hand. That’s what heard anyways, but when we moved in there I felt something right off hand like something wasn’t right there.
When my mom went to clean the kitchen we all noticed a stain on the cabinets. It was very dark red in color. …Read Complete Story Here...

I Need Your Help To Figure Out What’s Wrong
My story starts out from the beginning. I am going to tell you what experiences I have had, And if you have any feed back to help my theory please help.
I have heard that babies born with the umbilical cord wrapped around their neck have some kind or are more prone to psychic abilities. I was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck and the doctors and even my mom wasn’t sure I was going to make it.
I had done some research in the past and came a crossed a demon, I forget the name or its name, but that comes for the dying.
My theory is that the problems I have been having could be traced back to this.
As a kid I can remember never feeling alone as if someone was always with me. I remember one night I was probably close to 5 or 6 years old, sleeping in one room at my …Read Complete Story Here...
Three Paranormal Incidences in One Night
I swear everything that has been stated is true and I had no prior knowledge of the area before showing up.
I was 14 years old and a close friend of the family, Uncle Greg, decided to take me with him to a small town called Suffern, New York for their 4th of July Celebration. When I say small I mean small. Population was probably no more than 30 – 40 people there.
Every year Greg and his two friends, Willy and Danny, pool their money together to buy as many fun and crazy fireworks as possible to put on a private show to for their friends and family in Suffern.
I quickly made friends with the local kids: April, Josh, Ashley, and Tom. That night we decided to pitch up a tent and camp outside one of their yard’s. Later in the night we heard a commotion outside and everyone rushed out. A local lady was very drunk and …Read Complete Story Here...

My Old House in Texas
I was in the sixth grade when this happened, if I remember correctly, I am now 18 years old. I was living in Texas at the time, and my family was going to church regularly.
One night I woke up randomly, which was not unusual, and is still not unusual, but this night I turned to get more comfortable, and there she was. There was a woman next to my bed. She was wearing a red dress, which could have been a prom dress or just an evening gown, her face seemed like it had been beaten, such as her nose seemed to be broken and her jaw seemed to be misshapen.
The strange thing about this occurrence was that, while she was screaming, inaudibly, towards the corner parallel to my bed, I got a very calming feeling. I believe she was protecting me from something, but she could have just been re-living a moment in her life. I believe …Read Complete Story Here...
The Ghost In My Attic
One night after my cousin’s 15th birthday party, I asked my mum if my cousin Tasha who is 11 years old could sleep at my house that night because freaky things had been happening in my room, like scratches and knockings shadows and figures and other paranormal things, and I didn’t want to be alone in my room because I’m in the attic.
I was doing my cousin Tasha’s hair and she looked in the mirror and so did I, and my toy box had moved it was at the bottom off my bed in the mirror but we turned around and it was in the normal place then we looked in the mirror again and it was at the bottom off my bed and we turned around and it was actually at the bottom of my bed.
And we sat on my bed and we moved my toy box, and Tasha was too frozen and scared and she said …Read Complete Story Here...
