Lady in the Mirror

31 December 2015 | December 2015

This happened in 1988 when I was remodeling my house. I had 3 carpenters staying in at the house so that they could save on travel expenses and also, so they could start work on time. The other workers opted to go home since they lived closer to the house. After about a week of work, my lead carpenter suddenly changed his mind and said they would rather go home each night than stay at the house. I asked them why and here is his story… They were sleeping on the floor of the master bedroom since it was the only one with carpeting. At around 2:30 a.m., he stood up to use the restroom, which was adjacent to my walk in closet. You have to go through a door

Black Menacing Figure Haunts Family

21 December 2015 | December 2015

In the 90’s in London, England, my daughter rented a house from a landlord. It was a two bedroom as she has three children. Everything seemed fine at first, but her two youngest boys kept telling her that there was something nasty in the house. She didn’t believe them, and thought they were making it up. The house happened to be near a cemetery. One evening, after she had taken the children to bed, she told me that she came out of the bedroom and a great big black figure was standing just outside the door. It had no visible face. She said that it must have been an entity. She was terrified, and it just gradually disappeared. Another time, she took a photo on her camera phone when she

Ghost Writer

15 December 2015 | December 2015

Here is something submitted to the site that is a bit different. A ghost encounter that resulted in a song…… The song was inspired by an experience I had in Gloucester Place, London a few years ago. In the night, I was taken very ill and I was ‘visited’ by a beautiful, sophisticated young Victorian woman who had been an author during her life. Naturally I was terrified, firstly by the appearance of a ghost and secondly by the fact she had come to help me over to the other side. She regarded me as a kindred spirit and persuaded me that death and the next life are nothing to be afraid of. If I wanted to let go then all I had to do was to take her hand,

My First Hand Experience of the Civil War

11 December 2015 | December 2015

During a cross-country trip from Washington to Indiana—I had a strange experience at a Civil War battlefield. I have always been interested in the way—but I never had the chance to visit the battlefields before. It was a balmy, warm day and I was looking forward to walking across the battlefield and learning about the battle. We pulled over at the side of the road and started to walk towards the beginning of the battle route. It was a very bright day and there were other people around enjoying it. I didn’t feel in anyway strange. As we climbed a large embankment though I could hear talking. I put it down to other tourists. When we got to the top there were two men in full uniform talking to each

My Driving Angel

07 December 2015 | December 2015

Driving home from my boss’s dinner party at midnight I had an experience that I’d like to share with you. I hadn’t drunk much that night and I was taking a reasonably slow drive home. At some point on the way home I dozed off. I actually fell asleep at the wheel. Suddenly my head was raised from the lowered position it was in and my eyes were forced open. I saw a metal guard rail coming right at me. I was suddenly driving at 85 miles per hour. As fast as my eyes were opened something grabbed my wrists and moved the steering wheel. The car glanced past the guard rail. I could hear the screeching tires and I thought for a second that the car was going to

Crying Lady

03 December 2015 | December 2015, Your Stories

This happened when I was about 16 years old. My dad had just scolded me for coming home late. I went outside and sat by our pool to cry my heart out. When I looked at the swing there was an old lady sitting there looking at me. Immediately I knew she was an apparition because she was almost transparent. I couldn’t move, I thought I was yelling for help but nothing seemed to come out. I closed my eyes and when I opened them she was gone.I saw her again as I was on my way out with some friends. She was motioning for me not to go. I thought I was imagining this and went out just the same. We got into a head on collision accident. I

Never Abuse The Undead

30 November 2015 | November 2015

My cousin and I were doing a sleepover one time when we were teenagers. We have a Ouija board and I wanted to try it out. He didn’t. He went to bed but I stayed up and decided to try it out. I put it on a table and asked it the usual questions. It didn’t work—so getting bored I started to ask stupid questions. I asked if the spirits were too dumb to understand me. Nothing happened. A few days later I had forgotten about it. Over the following weekend I had been asleep and woke up in a sweat. I sat up in my bed and saw, what looked like a man, kneeling on the floor. He had black hair, a long beard and he looked up at

The Boneyard

27 November 2015 | November 2015, Your Stories

On the edge of town there is a very old graveyard. It had a name at one point—but the marker has been worn down to such a degree that the name is now unreadable. Most of us just call it the “bone yard.” The graves are some of the oldest in America. Some of the tombs are falling apart, many of the graves are unattended. Sometimes you see a bouquet, wreath or some sort of remembrance—but not often. One day I was walking home and happened to be walking past the graveyard. A man wearing a blue suit and tie and old bell-bottoms was wandering through the graveyard. Blue eyes, shaggy hair, sideburns. He looked like a caricature of the 70’s. I watched him—more surprised at someone visiting the graveyard,

Strange Happenings in New England

24 November 2015 | November 2015, Your Stories

This happened in New England in 1989. My daughter was almost four years old, and we had gone shopping for the day. I really didn’t like to shop in the side of town that we were in. It was rundown and pretty dangerous there. As a child I had spent a lot of time in that area though—we had lived near that shopping strip and my parents and I would shop there each week. Most of the shops were empty by 1989 though. My daughter and I were walking down the side of the road—a roadside she had never been down before. To my utter surprise she asked, “Can we go to the toy store after you’ve been shopping for food?” I knew for a fact that the toyshop had closed

Whose Feet Are Those?

19 November 2015 | October 2015

This experience puzzles me until now. It happened when i was still young. I woke up at 2am since i needed to use the comfort room. As i was going to the comfort room, I looked at the door of the living room. The living room has a wooden door and a curtain. At that time, the wooden door was open and it was dark in the living room. Looking at the curtains, I saw two pairs of feet like there are two people standing behind the curtain. I did not mind it thinking they were only my parents so I went to the comfort room then returned to my room. On my way back to my room, the feet are still there. In the morning, I asked my parents

A Jump Through Space?

15 November 2015 | November 2015

I was taking a routine drive into town one morning. It’s about two miles and it’s a woody road that is spotted with a few houses. We often have fogs and mists that roll in as there are several lakes in the area. That morning a mist was rolling in—but I didn’t take any notice. It was routine. I had gone half a block, pretty slowly, when I saw a light in the fog. I thought it was another car with it’s headlights on—but as I got closer I saw a market that I hadn’t seen before. I pulled in to get my groceries and I was marveling at the fact that this new market had been built so quickly. I went inside and remarked about how quickly they had

Lady in Black

10 November 2015 | November 2015

When I was still in elementary school, around 1995, our classes were only half a day so I would go home and stay there alone until my parents returned from work, which wasn’t usually until six in the evening. Each afternoon, as I watched television alone in the living room, I would always notice the silhouette of a Black Lady going up the stairs. I only saw her out of the side of my eye and when I look at her directly, she disappeared. At first, I thought this was just my imagination, or probably something wrong with my eyesight. One day, as my older brother and I were playing and telling stories, he mentioned that sometimes he notice a Black Lady like shadow going up the stairs and eventually

House Occupied….

05 November 2015 | November 2015

We moved into a new house around ten years ago. From the first day I thought it was haunted. I have heard, seen and felt things that you can’t explain away. My husband thought I was going insane until the day he was up late watching a football game—he turned his head and a big, old black man was looking straight at him. He now believes me. One night I woke up in the middle of the night, and I instantly felt as though I were not alone. I could feel it in the air. I couldn’t fall back to sleep so I decided to watch some TV. Even though I was wide awake I could not get out of bed. It was as though my body was still asleep,

Haunted Military

02 November 2015 | November 2015

I work in the Public Affairs Office of the Armed Forces of the Philippines General Headquarters in Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City. Our office space and barracks are in the grandstands of this military base. Although the building is kept new by recent renovations and good maintenance, it is very much haunted. Since our office caters to media and the military 24/7, we have people working night shifts. Although we sometimes feel and hear things during the day, it is during the night that weird stuff happens. Personnel who work the night shift would sometimes hear the loose tiles of the floor near our boss’s door clatter as if someone is walking circles or pacing at the dead of the night. No one is ever there if the

The Girl In The Mirror

30 October 2015 | October 2015

For Halloween, here is a particularly strange and spooky story from one of our readers…… I was young when I first started seeing ghosts. The first time was when I saw a woman wearing a white dress whose hair covered her whole face. I thought that would be the first and the last time, but I was wrong. That was only the first of my many encounters. I can feel them, and sometimes see them. But, I have never experienced talking to them (and I don’t want to! That’s too scary). Anyway, this one particular experience haunts me the most. I was still in college when this happened. Our house is one of those many that survived WWII, yes it’s ancient and the furniture is ancient too! I share a
