My Haunted Life Too

TRUE GHOST STORIES

The Cigar Smoking Ghost

03 September 2015 | September 2015

I bought this 4 story stone house and farm almost 11 years ago. 4800 square ft, high ceilings, 6 fire places; built in 1805 and on the National Registry of Historic Places in south central PA. I’m a carpenter and specialize in historic renovations having moved here from the DC area to fight an ex over seeing my son. That didn’t go well as you can’t fight money! That’s another story anyway. When I went to closing, I told the couple that I was buying it from that I would be disappointed if there was no ghost. She laughed and said the ghost smokes pipes and cigars and makes a lot of racket, but is harmless. I had lived in a very haunted house in Minneapolis when I was young

Boy In The Closet

02 September 2015 | September 2015

It was in 2008. I was working for this doctor as a certified nurses assistant and was also rooming in his home from which he had a private practice. One day, I was painting in the living room when I heard someone crying. The doctor came RUNNING down the hall at this crying noise to see if I was ok. Later that evening, the doctor and his daughter went out to dinner. I was tired and decided that I would take a bath, but as I began to undress, I heard a lady crying. I opened the bath room door, but no one was there. I went back into the bathroom and the same thing happened again, so I looked again and this time I saw a lady with all

Old Friend Says Goodbye

01 September 2015 | August 2015

This incident took place in Austin, Texas on August 19, 1995 between 11:30pm and Midnight. A friend of mine named Kevin had been going thru some bad times of late. He had been suffering from partial paralysis from an injury he had sustained years ago in a diving accident. His business was failing, his bank account was dwindling and since he had lost his lease with the apartment he lived in, he had to live with a friend until he could get back on his feet. As sometimes happens in all of us, Kevin lost hope and felt that there was no way out and so, committed suicide on August 17th. I was told about this the next day by a mutual friend of ours. A bunch of us got

Unborn Child

31 August 2015 | August 2015

When I was 12 weeks pregnant, I began to bleed and the pregnancy ended. I was devastated.. Years later, I got pregnant again. I was about 5 months pregnant when my Husband and I started hearing running sounds upstairs from my bedroom to the landing and down the stairs. We could also hear the handrail move as it was directly next to the living room where we were sat. There was never anything there when we got up and looked. This went on for a while and then baby things that I had bought went missing – toys etc. Then one day my neighbor came over to me as I got out of my car and asked who was in the house as there were apparently children laughing and running

Electrical Fault

30 August 2015 | August 2015

A friend of mine at college moved into a new flat at the beginning of term. It was a nice, big, well-equipped flat too, and the rent was almost too good to be true. After a month, he moved out again. Here is why. Over a beer or two, he told me that the place simply seemed too good to be true. The price was too low for such a nice place so conveniently located. However, he took it and counted his lucky stars. At first, all seemed fine and dandy. Periodically, however, especially around pub throwing out time, the doorbell would ring. He would go to the door and find no one there. Given the time of night it usually occurred, he put it down to drunken and playful

What is paranormal or supernatural activity?

29 August 2015 | What Is a Ghost? and other definitions

According to Wikipedia, paranormal activity can be defined as a subset of pseudoscience. What sets the paranormal apart from other pseudosciences is a reliance on explanations for alleged phenomena that are well outside the bounds of established science. Thus, paranormal phenomena include extrasensory perception (ESP), telekinesis, ghosts, poltergeists, life after death, reincarnation, faith healing, human auras, and so forth. The explanations for these allied phenomena are phrased in vague terms of “psychic forces”, “human energy fields”, and so on. This is in contrast to many pseudoscientific explanations for other nonparanormal phenomena, which, although very bad science, are still couched in acceptable scientific terms. Paranormal and supernatural are terms often used interchangeably to describe the same phenomena.

What Is a Ghost?

29 August 2015 | What Is a Ghost? and other definitions

According to my dictionary anyway, a ghost is an apparition of a dead person which is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. However, ghosts may be experienced indirectly as noises, emanations, smells, shadows and so on. In fact, ghostly activity might better describe what most people think of as a ghosts and that can be defined more broadly as of or relating to a ghost : suggesting a ghost. In essence, ghostly activity can also be defined as an aspect of paranormal activity.

A Call From A Dead Friend

28 August 2015 | August 2015

Sometimes, passed over friends and relatives simply need to tell us something. Apparently, they sometimes use the phone to do this. One such example of this is the man who with friends drove to a major nearby city the night before his quadruple bypass surgery. They picked a motel and took rooms. As he unpacked a few items, the room phone rang and his friend picked it up. “It’s for you,” she told him looking shocked after all, no one knew they were staying at that Motel. “Hello, is that you?” the voice asked. “Yes,” he said. “Don’t have your surgery tomorrow. It isn’t your time to die,” said the voice. “Who is this?” he asked incredulously. “It’s Jimbo,” said the voice. The only person named Jimbo he could think

The Bright Light From Heaven

26 August 2015 | August 2015

I heard this story from my mother a few years ago. My mother and her first husband were in Idaho in the mid 1960’s camping out. They were sitting around the camp fire talking when they finally decided to get in their tent and go to bed. They both got into their camping bed and settled to get some sleep when all of a sudden they saw an incredibly bright light that illuminated the inside of the tent as though it were daylight. My mother’s first husband open the tent door and looked outside. She followed him and they looked around and they could see everything with no shadows at all. My mother described it as though she had been asleep and woken up at noon. When they noticed that

The Dead Calling

25 August 2015 | August 2015

My sister has had some pretty interesting activity on her answering machine and phones. I have heard messages from the other side left on her answering machine. We know someone or something is trying to communicate with her using electronic energy as the mode. What we both want to know is how we can better receive these messages. The messages are sometimes hard to make out, yet some of the words are very clear. These messages are not left by human vocal chords (that much we know). We do not know where to go for this. I mean, it is not like we can call the ghost busters or anything! She recently has had a good friend pass away, and I also have had a friend pass. It could be one

Mr. Skeleton

24 August 2015 | August 2015

It was 1960 and we had just built our dream home in Texas. It was good land and the area around our house was all streams, rustic countryside and the land our house was built on had no record of having had any structure built on it before.  The owner had told us that he had used the land for grazing cattle. My wife had two huge experiences in that house. I was out working and my wife was busy at home working on one of her hobbies. She noticed that the bedroom door was open and decided to go down and close it. As she neared the door she saw the strange shape of a woman in a white dress drifting out of the room and into the wall

Red Demon

20 August 2015 | August 2015

One day during my summer vacation of 3rd grade my mom had gotten in touch with an old friend who was married to a pastor of a small community church. I was forced to go to church with my mom for a few weeks to “reconnect with god”. I was a kid at the time who hated church and found it boring but soon started to enjoy it. Within a couple weeks of going to church with my mom, a man started standing next to my bed to watch me sleep. I was a kid (maybe a tad smarter than my peers) and dismissed it as a figment of my imagination. I mean, it seemed like a logical answer at the time. He was dark red, covered in horns, and

Invisible Ghost

19 August 2015 | August 2015

At home in Michigan I had just gone to bed and I was lying around with my dog when he started to completely go bezerk! I looked around the room for something that could be bothering him when suddenly I felt my arm being pulled down against the bed. I looked to see what was constricting me and I saw nothing. Then I heard heavy breathing and could feel something close to me. I could actually feel the pressure on my arm getting stronger and stronger… until it stopped. Later that night I saw a depression in the mattress that looked like someone was standing on my bed—but there was nobody there. I didn’t know what to do and had never had an experience like this before. Nothing has happened

Near Death Experience

16 August 2015 | August 2015

When I was nine years old I was a very ill child due various illnesses. I was constantly in and out of hospitals. At one point I had been sick for a long time and, by all accounts, I was close to death. All I can remember is seeing what looked like a man surrounded by light. No facial features, no distinctive marks—just the figure of a man bathed in life. He asked me directly if I was ready to go. I didn’t want to go and wanted to live. He explained that he would never hurt me but I kept wondering what would happen to my parents. It was then that I felt completely filled with love and energy. The figure was gone but that feeling remained with me
