Hi guys! It’s me again. As I said in my last post, I did have another recent story for you all. This one happened at my friend’s apartment.
My friend Asha and I were sleeping over at my friend Nick’s apartment. Asha was dead tired, so we decided to go to bed. She and I were sleeping on the futon and Nick went to his room. I’ve never had an issue in his apartment before, so I was caught off guard.
I was starting to fall asleep, when I heard voices whispering. His apartment carried sound well, so normally I would assume it was his neighbors talking, or someone in the halls… but something about it made me uneasy. Not long after, I glanced over to the kitchen, and I noticed a blue light. It set me off, and lingered, so I tried profusely to wake Asha up… it faded by the time I got her up, and I asked …
I was only 12 years old when this incident happened. Me and my family were on vacation and we were staying in our relatives house the house was small for the five of us and we all had to adjust ourselves it was difficult.
Dehradun, a city in India, was famous for its natural beauty.
It was late night and as usual there wasn’t any electricity supply at night it was hot and suffocating. I was sleeping with my mother in one single bed and she held me tight to make sure I won’t fall off the bed. My Dad was sleeping with my uncle in the other room. I couldn’t get sleep because of the heat.
I then closed my eyes for sometime and when I opened them I saw a White object in front of me. I closed my eyes again and opened to make sure i wasn’t dreaming and I wasn’t! I then looked up and saw …
So I don’t know how this is going to sound because I can’t quite explain it myself. I’m hoping someone has some answers.
My boyfriend told me he see’s a lot of paranormal activity such as things moving and being thrown around, never been anything too frightening, more weird than anything.
Last night we went to bed and after about a minute or two of him being asleep, if that, he started to choke. I thought he was snoring at first and thought wow he went to sleep quick, so I left him to see if he would eventually stop. Then it got worse, only he sounded like he was choking this time, really choking.
I pushed him to wake him up and then had to shout at him quite loud until he woke up and gasped for air as though whatever had hold of his neck had suddenly let go. He was genuinely frightened and when he got up …
This happened many many years ago, and probably my first paranormal experience. It was when I was in grade 4 or 5, and I was sleeping over at a friends place who lived down the street from me at the time, her place was okay to be at during the day, but as soon as it got dark, the house seemed a bit more creepy to me. It was an old styled 2 story house, and the bedrooms were upstairs.
If I went up there to grab something from my friends room, I would always ask if she would come with me, because I had always felt scared to go there alone. If we were up there to watch TV I would always look over to the rooms when the lights were off, feeling like we were not the only 2 up stairs.
One time when we were in the spare room, we would always stay up late talking about …
First off, I’d like to say hello to everyone, as this is my first time posting here.
Most of the time, I mention this kind of thing to close friends only, but after reading some of the stories on this site, it makes me feel a bit more comfortable with sharing, as others have experienced things similar/same as I have. So, Starting off, I am a sensitive to the spiritual world. I never used to think so, but there’s been to many coincidences I try to brush off and rationalize with various people to not believe by now.
Well, I’ve always felt a faint presence in pretty much everywhere I’ve lived, some good, some bad. The place I’m currently living gets me the most though. I live in Ottawa, which you would think is fine, but, I’ve noticed day or night, I despise being alone in the house. I know I do tend to scare easy, but I’ve managed to …
This happened in early June. It was the night of my boyfriend’s senior ball, and he was spending the night at my house afterward. We went up to my room and when I turned my light on, it seemed to be about ten times brighter than it normally is, almost blinding. Now, I doubt this was anything supernatural, but I feel it’s worth mentioning. About fifteen minutes later, it blew out and I had just changed it no less than three days beforehand.
It started getting weird an hour or so later. We were just sitting in the dark talking when my boyfriend got quiet. After a minute he said, “I feel like something’s in here.”
The room did feel a little heavy, but we ignored it for a few minutes, until he demanded that I give him my camera. He took at least thirty pictures of my bedroom and all of them had orbs in them. Not just two …
I’m 40 years old. I have played with the Ouija board many times in the past with friends and had never had a bad experience. I always thought it was just for fun.
In February of 2010, we just moved into a new home In Michigan. It was all updated, looked so beautiful but was actually built in 1980′s. I know since it was a new house, we heard noises and we all accused each other of who left the lights on after I know we turned them off etc.
At night when I would stay up watching TV and everyone else was a sleep. I swear I would hear someone walking around in the kitchen. I even got up thinking my son got up but no one would be there. Another night, when it was just me up, I heard a door open and foot steps. Again I thought my son got up cause his room was on the …
When I was two my dad was told his job would be taking him from California to England. My mom was so excited, and couldn’t wait for me and my older brother to experience something no one else in our family had. Me being two and my brother five however, dad wasn’t sure we’d get much out of it.
For the first year and a half we’d lived in a small house out in the British country side. However, My dad decided we needed someplace bigger, as I now had a baby brother on the way. He found the House for rent, a huge brick two-story house, to this day the largest house I lived in.
Mom said it was fairly normal when we first moved in. The sounds heard through the house nothing more than the heavy building shifting and settling. Just before my brother was born, however, things she says she couldn’t explain started happening.
Hello, Let me start out by telling you a little bit about myself.
I am a 34 year old male from Manchester, Kentucky. I am married but currently separated and I have a 6 year old son. I really don’t know where to begin but I’ll try. Around 6 months ago I got a DUI charge and lost my drivers license therefore lately I’ve not really been able to be social(spend a lot of time alone). I’ve noticed some strange things that I’ve not seen before. I really don’t even know how to explain it.
I think a lot… might even go as far as talk to myself at times. I know this sounds crazy but I’ve been hearing a voice in my head and I’ve been catching myself answering it aloud. At first I thought nothing of it but it’s gotten out of hand… it’s using my family against me. It’s pretending to be family members and lies a …
I came across this site a few days ago and wanted to share this.
I am normally a very happy, strong willed individual, however there have been a few times in my life I have suffered severe depression. The first time was back in 2007 after my Grandpa died (he was one of those very rare persons that never had anything mean to say, loved everyone, always sincere and had a very infectious passion for life). I slipped into depression, wouldn’t leave my bed or my house for that matter. Almost lost my job and many friends. I just felt generally lost and empty. After a few weeks of living like this with one foot already off the edge to killing myself, I had this dream:
I was sitting in a clearing and in front of me was this tree, it was huge and glowed with what I perceived to be life. As I stared at it, I began to …
I’ve been seeing some really strange things lately and there are very few people I can tell or ask for help from.
Recently I started a new job, its only a five minute walk away from where I’m now living. I don’t remember what day this happened on but it was nearly mid day and I was walking to work, I wasn’t paying much attention to anything other then my mobile because I was texting someone.
To get to my work I have to walk past a fire station. As I walked past, in the corner of my eye, I saw a man standing in the middle of the fire station grounds, he was wearing a white suit and he had white hair, it made me jump a little because he was just standing there staring at me, but as I quickly looked up there was no-one there.
I didn’t stop until I got into work, but I did look …
I don’t know how to start or how to write here what happens. It’s the first time that these weird things are happening with me. I’m not American. So, sorry if I do many mistakes while writing here.
It started in the end of 2009. I was going to move with my family to a small town and I was really upset because I didn’t like the idea of leave my friends and everything.
A week before I move, in December I had a weird dream about an angel, I was talking to him and he seemed very familiar to me. I can’t remember it clearly, but we’re staring together at a mirror, and I told him that I was afraid and he said “Me too”.
At first, I woke up and thought to myself that it was nothing but I dream (it was just the most vivid dream that I ever had but I didn’t mind at all). So …
