Most vivid dream. So it all starts in my fathers neighborhood where I stay home alone most of the time. It was about 10 or 11 at night and I went out for a walk into the pitch black night. I don’t remember there being a moon in the dream and the only light was coming from those bright street lights.
As I was walking around the town house community I felt I was being watched. I turned around to see if I could see anyone and I saw a tall man in a bright long yellow rain coat, he seemed to be really old and had a white beard. His face was a blur so I did not recognize any of his facial features. He was about two street lights behind me. I ran home and on the way it started raining hard. I felt heavy and in my dream it felt I was running in slow motion.I got …
This all started 3 years ago when I was refurbishing my bedroom.
One night after the work I saw the closet door open, I jumped up and looked in because the carpet is thick and it takes a lot of force to open this door, nothing was in there, I was freaked. The next night I woke up and sat straight up, looked at the closet door which I had made sure it was closed but its open now, I went and slept on the couch.
The next night I felt someone sitting on the end of my bed, I summoned up some balls after awhile and asked her name because I saw an outline of a teenager, she said Amanda.
To make a long story short I finally got over my fear and she sits on my bed and we talk almost every night, she committed suicide in 1939 and I checked it at the library and I’ll be …
A couple years ago, when I started working in a restaurant in a hotel, I was engaged and had an ok life until we split up. After that I got together with a beautiful girl. After a couple of weeks I had been drinking and went home with another girl. Of course my girl was pissed and she dumped me. Only then I realized what an idiot I was.
Later that evening, I was very upset, and hoped for forgiveness. I prayed and prayed, crying on the floor, hoping for a sign, for more than an hour, I think.
A while later, I went to bed, and fell asleep very tired. I had a dream that night. In my dream I was still down on the floor, on my knees, crying, praying. And in front of me, in the dark, was a tall figure, all black. Had some kind of weird horns or something. And he told me ”Worship me. …

Hi I’m 13 years old but this ghost story is real. It happened when I was 8 years old.
I’m from Russia but I live in u.a.e (united Arab Emirates).
One day I really needed a phone so my dad bought me a Motorola v3 black. So while he went to buy the phone,i was sleeping. I dreamed about my uncle. So when my dad came back he looked sad and depressive. He gave me the phone and I thanked him and started asking him what happened. He set quiet and suddenly spoke… he said my uncle died… tears started running my cheeks… I thought I was still asleep, but dreams are totally different form reality.
After all we started packing our luggage and leave to Russia. When we landed, we went to my grandmas house. My dad stepped in the house and he asked me to come along, but I simply said that I was scared. He said there …
A couple of months ago I was home alone, it was in the morning. I was still in bed and my kids were in school and my husband was taking his mom to a doctors appointment and like I said I was at home still in bed when I was awaken by foot steps outside my bedroom.
At first I thought my husband was still at home when I heard these foot steps. My daughters room is right next to mine, so at this point I heard the foot steps walking back and forth from my daughters room pass my door and to the front door. Over and over again I heard this thing walking back and forth, then all of the sudden it stops at my door, and I was thinking this whole time it was my husband, when it stopped at my door, I was waiting for him to enter the room, and nothing. I heard it walk …
My experience happened to me a few years ago when my youngest son was hospitalized with a life threating disease in Riley Children’s Hospital. I also have two other children besides the one who was born with the disease of his intestines.
After I had been in my sons room night and day for several months I began to cry over missing my other two boys and I was told about a charity house across the street that allows families with severely ill children to come to their mansion and stay in one of their rooms so that their other children could also see their parents. It seemed almost too good to be true for me to hear but I signed up for a room on their long waiting list and prayed like hell that I would get one soon.
When the call came in just a few days later that a room had become available for my husband and …
This happened in the year 2000, I was 36 years old then and I was living in a new apartment in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, with my four daughters ages 2, 7, 12, and 17. My estranged husband had moved out and was catting around and that’s another whole story. This particular night I was home in the apartment with only my 2 year old and 7 year old because the older ones were spending the night with friends elsewhere. I was on the computer and it was really late… near 3 in the morning and my 7 year old was sound asleep in her room and my two year old was in my bed in my bedroom sound asleep.
I closed out of the computer after doing extensive family research and I was mad. I was mad because I could not find a clue as to what had happened to a great great Aunt of mine that had gone missing in …
I have seen a figure in my house and experience other things which I believe could be related to him. I have seen the figure clear as day light.
My cottage dates back to the 16C. I believe the man to be the owner of the old windmill up the road where all the grain would be stored in the barn part of my house. The man would stand at the entrance from the extension connecting to the barn part. He is approximately 6 feet white wears a long black draped coat with the collar up and an old fashioned hat. He looks straight at me between the collar and the hat. He would then stare until I looked away and looked again which he would be gone. I have seen him around 5 times.
When I moved into the cottage my bedroom is in the 16C cottage itself which is joined to the barn via the extension. As I …
Okay so personally I have had many, many encounters with things I’ve seen to be paranormal as did my mum when she was younger.
Some stories she’s told me have been mainly about hauntings in houses she’s lived or things associated with Ouija boards, where as I’ve experienced visions/dreams of things to happen before, my best friend when I was younger and I some how used to think we would hear each other speak exactly what the other was thinking when we heard it.
But one story that I will remember vividly is a run in I believe I had with a ghost.
My uncle had just bought this old train station about an hour and a half into the country from the city I live in…
I went out there one weekend to visit and due to how old the building is I decided to ask my uncle if he knew of any hauntings or anything associated with it. …
After thirty years of keeping this story strictly to ourselves, the Perron family has finally divulged a closely-guarded secret. The saga has been released to the public in the form of a trilogy. It is a collective memoir; one that chronicles the numerous events which occurred in our home between 1970 and 1980.
Volume One of “House of Darkness House of Light” is the supernatural tale of seven mortals who moved into an ancient farmhouse in Harrisville, R.I. We inadvertently embarked upon an extraordinary journey of spiritual enlightenment then left the farm a decade later, each fundamentally changed and absolutely certain that there is some form of existence beyond this realm.
Ed and Lorraine Warren became involved, investigating the haunting in the mid 70s, unleashing an unholy entity during a seance gone horribly wrong. The Warrens spoke often of their encounter, describing the Perron haunting as one of the most profound and compelling of their famous career as …
