The Knocking Ghost
Since, I moved into this house, I’ve been hearing noises, seeing things and been having strange feelings, the only problem is that it only happens in or near my bedroom, day or night.
Not that long ago, me and my friend were just hanging out in my back yard, just laying down on my trampoline, which is ever so near my bedroom, which is facing the backyard, when both of us heard walking on the grass, all the animals were inside and my parents were in too, I also don’t have any siblings. We both looked around and then ran right in.
As soon as we reached my bedroom we both sat down to talk about our experience,that was when she said that she had saw someone or something walking around in my bedroom but it was way to dark for her to see any face, it was pitch black right then, plus it was also outside, we had also …Read Complete Story Here...
Starting to See and Hear Things
Is my house haunted?
I am a huge believer when it comes to people seeing ghosts and other paranormal activities so now I wanted to know if anyone could help me with the answers to my experiences. I don’t remember if I had any weird experiences when I was younger but now that I’m 19 I’m starting to see and hear things.
One night I was in the kitchen getting a drink when I got a sudden urge to look over to my left. When I looked over I saw what appeared to be a little girl standing in the hall that led to the bathroom and my bedroom. She was wearing a red dress with a white shirt and pigtails. But when I went to take a closer look she was gone! I saw her one more time in my room where she ran in but disappeared before she reached my closet.
Another incident was when I was sitting …Read Complete Story Here...

My Best Friend Manong
I was at age 3 when I remembered having this friend named Manong (in Asian that means “Sir”). My parents were doing laundry in the kitchen and they left me alone in my room with my TV on. I was on my bed sucking on my bottle when my window opened. A cold wind flew in. A figure of a man appeared. We talked and laughed. We became friends and I knew all about him. My mom came inside my room and asked me who I was talking to. I said “Manong? He’s my new best friend!” my mom gave me a weird look and left. After she left Manong came back.
In the morning’s I would get a plate and fill it with food. I would go outside and leave it on this oak tree we had. I told my mom about it and she actually believed me. She never saw Manong? But only I did. I was his …Read Complete Story Here...
Possible Ghost in Berchtesgaden Germany
I have a strange story for you. I was out of the U.S. army and working in a U.S. military resort complex in Berchtesgaden Germany as a Janitor in the early 90′s. The hotel was called the General Walker Hotel.
One of my jobs was to unlock all the offices for the morning work that included the directors and personnel. To get there you had to walk down a long hall made from stone, this was at 6:00 am the only thing in this part of the building was the large Ball Room, so I knew no one would be here at this time of the morning.
I walked up to the door an emergency exit light was on and looked through the glass to the spiral staircase that went down to the offices and saw a shadow of bust statue. I have been down there many times, there is no statue there, but so early in the morning I …Read Complete Story Here...
My Dead Nephew Visited Me in My Dreams
I’m very lost and don’t know what to think of everything that has happened in the past 6 months since my nephew has passed. He was 16 years old going to be 17 Aug. 18th of this year. He died from problems with his diabetes. Here is my story…
The day I went to see my nephews body for the first time I had a strange feeling that he wasn’t all the way gone. Even now that I could see him laying there and could feel his cold hands and see how pale his face was. There was no life in his body. I knew in my head he was gone. But my heart wouldn’t take that. (many people don’t the first time seeing your loved ones in that way).
The next day I went to visit him another time. This time I was by myself and talked to him telling him about my daughter that he hadn’t gotten to …Read Complete Story Here...
Affectionate Pet Haunting
I didn’t use to believe in Ghosts but things have happened that make me question that.
As a child I often used to see strange shadows in bed at night but I never thought much of them. they never bothered me and they didn’t appear scary anyway.
5 years ago my first dog Phantom died in the 2 years after that I occasionally felt the feeling of a presence that felt like it was her. I didn’t think much about it.
Last year my cat Calliope 1994-2010 died she was older than me. A few months after that I was lying in bed going to sleep when I saw a white smoky image in the shape of a cat at the window it was there for a second and then it was gone. It scared me a little at first but then I decided it was just harmless.
About 2-3 months later the same thing happened. A few months after …Read Complete Story Here...

My Possession in Palestine Texas
None of my stories have been posted as of yet, but, I keep typing them. I have to get this off my chest and out there to even strangers somewhere… Anywhere.
If my stories are posted I have stated that it all started happening when I was about 14 years old. That’s not entirely true!
The fact is one really strange event happened when I was just about 5 years old and nothing else did happen until about 14.
I was 4 or 5 years old at our farm house in Palestine, Texas. My Mom was feeding my little sister who was at that time a little infant in a high chair. I was watching the TV and I got this really weird feeling come over me. It was like I felt I was sort of floating above myself. It was a trance like state. For whatever reason I walked over to my mom feeding my sister and bachanded the …Read Complete Story Here...
Imaginary Friends and Strange Experiences
Hi, my name is Sam. Actually, it’s my initials, but I’d rather go by Sam. I live in Tennessee but I’ve moved more than 10 times all through-out my life. And I believe that I’ve been haunted by something all of my life, but I just don’t know what it is.
It all started out when I was about 4 or 5 years old. My family had to live with my Mom’s parents until our house was fully constructed, which would only take a few months. My mom’s parents lived in Pennsylvania. And I was the only daughter of four children. Since my two older brothers were 9 and 6 years older than me, they didn’t want to play with some little kid, let alone to play with some little girl. And my younger brother was only 2, and I didn’t want to play with some BABY! So, I “created” 2 ‘imaginary’ friends. Honestly, I don’t remember how they came …Read Complete Story Here...

Demons or Dark Spirits
After my friends father died, she was so distraught that her husband went to the graveyard and told her daddy to come to their house. He didn’t realize what he had done.
Since then they have seen four white spirits and one dark one in their home. She pricked her finger and put a blood drop above all the doors to drive it out and told it to leave that it was not welcome. Now, the dark spirit stays on the back porch and looks through the window at them.
Last week her husband was pushed down in the woods. He’s been pushed off ladders, things like that. Things are getting worse, not better.
Since she was 12, she’s had problems so this only added to it. She has dreamt of this ram or goat headed thing with a mangled face and it tries to get her to go with it. She described this to me but, never told me …Read Complete Story Here...
So Glad Your Here
I don’t really know how to start. My name is Alex and I never really understood or believed the after life. My friends and other people have all told me its true and I just never totally believed it.
Anyway, this year on Memorial Day weekend and my family and I own land in Oconto, Wisconsin and were sitting around the fire on Saturday night. My cousins and I are playing football in the dark and having a good ole time. We finally get tired and I have to go to the bathroom… so being a guy I just took a couple steps into the woods and that was that.
After I’m done I look up and there is an older gentleman there looked like he was a very hard worker and a farmer, looked like a quiet person, scared I said “who are you?” and the man looked at me with sad eyes and said “I’m so glad your …Read Complete Story Here...
