My Haunted Life Too


The Return of the Living Dead

29 August 2017 | August 2017, Your Stories

This incident took place in the mid 1980’s. My mother died suddenly just a few weeks before this all took place. We were not terribly close as my parents had gotten a divorce during the 70’s. I was living with my boyfriend at his apartment. It was getting dark outside, and I had to go get my boyfriend from work at eight. I planned on cleaning and finishing my housework. I bent down to pick up something I’d dropped and standing back up I saw as clear as day, my mother just sitting in the corner of my hallway outside our bedroom. I only saw her for a split second. I even second guessed if I was seeing things, but it was just too real for me to conclude that

The Tugging Ghost of Alabama

25 August 2017 | August 2017, Creepy places, Your Stories

This morning I felt my hair being pulled. I normally experience this only in my house. It especially happens in my room, home office, and kitchen, and it always seems to happen while I’m alone. Today I felt two tugs at my hair while I was in my room. I had been trying to sleep and then out of nowhere I felt a tug. I have medium length hair so at one point I thought it was just static or my hair getting caught on something. But then I noticed it happening more often. There was one time when I was alone, listening to music in my room and I felt a tug. Whatever was tugging at my hair pulled my hair so hard that a strand broke off. I

The Terrifying Vision of a Hanging Man

23 August 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Where I grew up we had a lot of empty lots. I remember one of them had a huge tree growing in the centre of the lot. Actually, it was very jungle-like and overgrown. My mother and I would often go past that lot when we went grocery shopping. One day we were walking next to that land and I suddenly saw, what looked like a man, hanging from one of the branches. He was wearing a white shirt and a white pants. It was not clear because he was little transparent and I didn’t see his face clearly. He did nothing but hanging there. Surprisingly I didn’t get scared at all so I told my mother that I saw a hanging man on the tree and she looked and

The Phone Call

22 August 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is my friend’s story. His mother told him this story, which happened when he was a baby, about three or four years old. One day, he was playing with a toy with his mother. Then he said he heard the telephone ringing and picked up the receiver and began talking into it. His mother had not heard any ringing from the phone and was sure he was just playing with the telephone. After talking into the phone for several minutes, he hung up and said, “Mom, that was grandmother. She said to tell you goodbye.” At that moment, the phone rang for real. His mother answered the phone and she was surprised. It was the unexpected news that his grandma had just died. (Name withheld by request) Taken from

The Aunt and The TV

21 August 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A lady who moved into her deceased Aunt’s house began to suspect something was amiss when small objects appeared to move around the house by themselves. However, she became quite alarmed when the TV in the upstairs bedroom came on all by itself. This wasn’t a one off occurrence happening regularly at the same time on certain days of the week and no matter on what channel the TV had been on, it always featured the same channel. Eventually, she began to realize that the TV came on for her aunt’s favorite TV shows. She also discovered that if the TV came on by itself, she could tell it to switch off by itself and it would do. She even videoed this to prove to stunned neighbors and relatives. She

The Old Hag

18 August 2017 | Old hag, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had a period in my late ’20s when I wasn’t necessarily doing that well – drinking too much, which left my nervous system shredded and vulnerable. I woke up in sleep paralysis while living in my mom’s basement, with a spectral hag floating not far above me, maybe six inches. Classic banshee form – skeletal face, half-rotted in parts, cheekbones exposed, gaping mouth, eye sockets, stringy hair. I just freaked and froze, not that i would’ve been able to do anything anyway, as I couldn’t move. I was living in a semi-raw, semi-unfinished, basement at the time, with styrofoam insulation in the ceiling. I watched, in real-time, as the specter gradually went from 3d to 2d, becoming a shape and a texture of ceiling insulation that completely matched the

The Witch in my Dream

17 August 2017 | Old hag, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I took a nap mid day once. Slight lucid dream but nothing spectacular. I woke up to sounds of people talking outside my bay window and moving my porch furniture. I tried to get up to stop them but realized I was in sleep paralysis. Talked myself through it blinking frequently. The sounds go away, but a shadow starts growing in the corner of my living room. I just keep telling myself that its sleep paralysis, but the shadow turns into this very tall black shadow of a witch with black tattered robes hanging off her and long claws. She walks up to me and gets her face close to mine and vanishes and I can move again. It really bothered me. I don’t scare easily but she was the

A Thrill From Contacting the Dead

16 August 2017 | Demons, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I recently moved into an apartment with my dad, my sister and my brother. My sister and I share a bedroom. One night, my sister told me that she knew how to contact the dead. I was a little freaked out, but I wanted to try it. I said that we should contact our great grandma who died in the 90’s. So we did, we began asking her questions, like “are you at peace, are you disappointed in us, are you in heaven, are you happy”. The only positive answer was she’s not disappointed. After that she told us that she was not at peace, not in heaven, and not happy. We felt like she was there to protect out our family. Since I moved in, I have felt a

Ghostly Radio

15 August 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Dead people can apparently also use radio to communicate with the living. A couple that was moving into a new home after their wedding started to hear music playing quite loudly in the house, but couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. They began to search through the boxes of belongings that were piled up all around looking to see what the source could be. Eventually, they came across an old transistor radio that had once belonged to the wife’s grandfather. It was playing wartime band music very loudly. There was just one problem. The radio was not connected to any power, contained no batteries and had been broken and unusable for years. She only kept it as an ornament and memento of her long dead grandfather. It seemed

Premonition of a Family Members Death

11 August 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Ever since I was a kid I’ve had weird things happen to me, my grandfather passed away in 1992 and I was born a year later, my grandma had used an ouijja board to communicate with him and he said he would come back to the earth through me, like a reincarnation or something. When I turned 13 I would get these weird dreams, not regularly but once in a blue moon, I would see an ambulance in my dream, and then someone from my neighborhood would pass away. I felt guilty but people were like “it’s not your fault you’re not killing them you know. Maybe you have a strong sixth sense or something.” Sometimes I’ve seen things pass from the corner of the eye around me whether it

The Scottish Poltergeist

09 August 2017 | Ghosts in the news, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Another poltergeist occurrence that was widely discussed in the press was really very bizarre. It took place in the Rutherglen, Scotland, home of Mrs. Shreenan who lived there with her son and, from a media perspective anyway, began with an amazing tale of a flying Chihuahua dog. The police were called to disturbances at the home where they found clothes flying across a room and the family’s pet dog sitting on top of a large hedge. The police were to say the least troubled by what they found and called in a Priest. Police attending the incident were described as having 20-year’s experience, but not knowing quite what to do under the circumstances. Lights were going off and on, the lampshades on the lights were upside down and the oven

The Haunted Room

08 August 2017 | Your True Encounters

The bedroom I ended up sleeping in was notorious in our family before I was even born. Several members of our family complained about headaches, nightmares and visitations when they slept in that room. I had few experiences in there over my ten-year tenure. I shared the room with my sister and she complained often of things happened but only one incident stands out to me. One night, I was awoken by moaning. It sounded like a moan of anger and despair. It sounded like our house helper was having a nightmare. But what got to me was that her moaning voice was much deeper than her actual voice, and the intensity of her despair was too hard to ignore. I decided to wake her up as her sound creeped

Black Eyed Man on The Powerlines

07 August 2017 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This took place one summer several years ago. We were in the back yard. My mother was sitting in a chair to my left and dad was sitting to the right, I was in the middle with my favorite blanket. It was a mild day, extremely pleasant– until I looked at the power line running across the backyard. Now on this power line was a tall man walking in black. The one thing that makes me remember this is the eyes. They were completely black. That feeling when he looked at me though just terrified me. I blinked and he was gone. Nobody else saw him. It was one of the most terrifying things that has ever happened to me. He was standing still on the powerline, he didn’t move,
