Summoning a Ghost the Circle of Hands

One day in fourth grade, my best friend Tori, my cousin Zaria and I were very bored and began to read a Ghost book I had borrowed from the school library. We came across something called the ‘Circle of Hands’ and decided to try it.

We turned off the lights, sat in a circle, and put a Bible in the middle of us. Zaria began to chant nonsense (so it seemed) and for a while, nothing happened. I opened my eyes and glanced toward Tori to see how she was taking this but she didn’t exchange glances with me. She was wide eyed, in total awe. She stared at the ceiling also. At first I thought “What in the world is she looking at? Is there a bug on the wall?” I fixed my eyes toward what she was looking at. And I saw something I really cant explain…

I saw a shadowy figure with curly hair and a smile …

White Face at a Private Lake

I went fishing with my dad at a private lake in Potters Bar, and my dad was teaching me how to cast a rod properly. And when I attempted to cast it… I failed, badly and the hook went way far back and my dad trapsed after it.

Well, in my eyes, we were sneaking into this private part of the lake, because a barbed wired fence had a hole in it… (no doubt my dad had something to do with that) and we always came in through there. But this was the first time I had been bored fishing with my dad, because he had been gone quite a long time… so I waddled around the grass and picked daisies and made daisy chains for my dad.

But it all of a sudden became dark, almost as if a shadow was casting over me, so I turned around and there it was, a man… it was in old fashioned …

Shadow Figure and My Daughter Saw it Too

About three weeks ago, my wife got up around 2 am to go to the bathroom. I few moments later I heard her call my name. I answered her and she said in a frightened voice to “come here now”. I hurriedly got up and saw turned on the hallway light outside the bathroom. She was in the bathroom staring out the door and into the living room. I asked her what was wrong and she said she saw a silhouette of a person walk from the front door toward the coat closet. She said when she called my name, the figure turned toward her and faced her. She was obviously unnerved. She said she thought someone was in the house until I turned on the light. When the light came on it was gone. I turned on the bedroom light and tried talking to whatever she had seen. I did not getting any type of a response. I regret …

A Twist In My Story

Up until two years ago I had no preference on whether or not ghosts, or spirits, or whatever were real. Before I start to tell my story I am going to make things a little more clear so things won’t be confusing. I am a teenager, with divorced parents. They have shared custody and I switch houses everyday.

At first nothing really happened at my Dad’s house. It was my Mom’s house that things were happening. The first thing was what I would like to call ‘the tiki incident’. My mom is really into tiki bars and stuff, so she bought this sign that said “Tiki Bar” on it, with a little tiki head separating the words. The sign was sitting on the counter, about a foot and a half away from the doorway. Well one day I am downstairs with my mom, my stepdad, and both the animals. Then we hear a loud thump. My stepdad rushed upstairs to …

Scary Sleep Paralysis Experience

Okay well lets start from the beginning: I have been into tracking spirits since I was 10, my old house was haunted and I had been scared; my sister thinks the spirit followed me or since I live near a cemetery that it may be something from there.

One night I was having a really weird dream and in that dream was: “me, my mom, and my sister all talking in a house that wasn’t ours, it was someone else’s and it had mirrors everywhere, while my sister and mom were talking I looked over to a mirror to see a little girl in a white dress and white hair, she was very pale, she ran across the hallway from what I saw, then I looked away, she was gone. Then I looked back, she was there.”

I then awoke from the dream and I don’t know what was happening but I couldn’t move or breathe. I could move my …

Smelling Dirt and Premonitions of Death

My 41 yr old daughter has premonitions of someone’s death: She smells fresh dirt/earth. This has been happening since she was a teenager. Of course, she didn’t correlate waking up, smelling dirt with anyone’s death. She did take notice that each time she actually did awaken from smelling fresh dirt, someone died.

Over the years, she gets approximately 3 to 4 days notice that someone is going to die. It’s always someone in the family, or a close friend of the family. It doesn’t happen when it’s outside of the family or people that she barely knew.

Today she called me, in tears. She’d been awakened 4 days ago, smelling fresh dirt. She knew someone was going to die. Two days ago, the smell woke her up and it was so strong, as if it were being pushed in her face. Her father-in-law died this AM. She’s never dreamt of it twice in a row… but… being it was her …

The Ghost of My Girlfriends Brother

Hi all and thanks for reading this. Its not really a story just details of some of the experiences I have had.

My girlfriends brother died from a brain tumor over 10 years ago now and ever since he has made his presence known to her. He follows her wherever she goes and lives.

Although I have only been with my girlfriend for 5 or so years, I have had several first hand experiences of her brother.

1) Whilst watching TV with my girlfriend in her flat I noticed a black cloud the size of a football float along the floor in front of the fire. Once it got to the TV it disappeared – above the TV hung a picture of my girlfriends brother!

2) At Christmas and around the times of our daughters’ birthdays, he gets more active and things start happening. Normally is the lights flickering but he will also show himself, but not to the girls …

A Series of Weird Events

Since I was a little girl I have encountered many weird happenings, but there was nothing like this one. It was fall of 2009, first there was clocks falling of the wall, bottle caps that just pops off by there selves, boxes that were flat on there bottoms tipping over on its own. Well, it gets a little stranger.

I was just getting ready for bed when I heard a loud thump in the kids room. I go to check and my daughter, who was just two at the time, looked as if she was thrown out of her bed to the other side of the room. She stood up not knowing why she was on the floor.

One morning I wake up and I see in the reflection of my washer my son, who was three playing in his room, so I call him I get no response. I call him again and the reflection is dancing. My husband …
