My Haunted Life Too


A Creepy Night at Rydges Hotel, Hobart

11 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had never believed in or experienced the paranormal until I spent a night at the Rydges Hotel in Hobart. This was 15 years ago and I still get goose bumps when I think about it. As a seasoned business traveller, I’ve slept in over 1000 hotel/motel rooms in over 20 countries over the last 20 years. Never had a problem getting to sleep, even in a noisy room. I arrived around 5pm, checked in as normal. Only thing I noticed was the hotel was empty and lacking patrons. And the building had a drab exterior that resembled a 1950’s primary school. The interior had the look and feeling of an old hospital. I dined out as this was my first time in Hobart. I returned around 10pm, had a

Message from Mom

10 December 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My Mom and Dad both lived in Ohio; divorced, so separate residences. I live in Arizona. Dad called one morning to tell me that Mom had passed away; massive heart attack, and was gone in an instant. I was blindsided, as I spoke with her the day before, and she sounded fine. Got off the phone with Dad, crying like crazy, and decided just to go out for a walk for a couple of minutes to clear my head. I walked through the apartment complex next to mine, and passed a dumpster in the parking lot. On the top of the dumpster was a really pretty blue bag. I got the bag, finished my walk, and returned home. I set the bag on the floor in the kitchen, and got

Thanksgiving Explosion

02 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had the creepiest Thanksgiving happen when I was a young teenager in the 90’s. You first have to know some facts for this story to make sense so let me explain. Fact one: My mom had a balloon business at the time. That means there were strings of fishing line hanging through our living room. Fact two: I was in love with Keanu Reeves after Speed came out. My prize possession was a giant poster given to me a few years earlier. It was huge and would fall down all the time. The edges were covered in tape from being hung over and over again. Fact three: My mom had been a single parent for years until she remarried. She worked a lot which means we kids were generally

The Boy’s Home Hauntings

28 November 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Eight years ago I moved out of my parents house with a boyfriend twenty five minutes north into a house that used to be a boys home. I didn’t know about that while I lived there. The house was at least 150 years old but it had beautiful chandeliers through out the entire house. The basement like all basements was extremely scary to be in and had a weird side room that was dug outside of the basement foundation wall and into the ground like a cave. I believe it was a storage room but there was no lights in it and it had a creepy plywood door that creaked when you opened it and didn’t sit straight when shut. I hated going in the basement. I had to though

Something on the Roof

27 November 2019 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This experience happened in October, 21 years ago close to Halloween, when my oldest son was just 1 1/2 weeks old. I’m no longer with his mother but at the time she had a 1 year old son. We lived in a trailer close to the outer edge of town. It was around 9:30 pm and we had all the lights off with just the four of us sitting in the living room watching tv. All of a sudden we hear a loud thud on the roof coming from the master bedroom down the hall. Both of the kids start crying but not like they are hungry or needed a diaper change but like a tone of fear in their cries. We can both feel the fear in the pits

In the early 2000s, a friend of mine moved to into an old house with some other college friends in Milwaukee. There were not enough bedrooms in the house, so he turned the attic into a huge bedroom and art studio. It was a great room to play guitar, write poems on the wall and paint the windows. Just an over all room to express ourselves in a fun and creative way. Shortly after our discovery of the freedom in this house we realized something was off. A lot of friends that came over would be hit with an unexplainable depression. The feeling weighed you down like you had a pack filled with sand bags in your mind. After the sudden change in moods, we also started hearing things; creaks,

The Hat Man and Winged Woman

18 November 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Been listening for a while now a year at least and just heard the story of the Hat Man on Weird Darkness on November 6th 2019. Decided for the first time to share my story about this…… My family and I are not new to the paranormal being that we lived on a graveyard of old asylum patients for the last 30 years. But I do remember this vividly and to this day. I still see them both. First time was at age 5 and about every year until now for about 21 years I see the Hat Man and the Winged Woman once a year. She always follows him after he appears. He can almost appear on command I feel like. I usually bring people over to show proof

Tracks of Change

14 November 2019 | Alien Abduction, UFOs, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hello to everyone and thank you very much for reading. This is my true story and the one that would mentally and physically change me forever. It started on December 7th, 2017, approximately 8 pm in a small Ohio town called Tipp City. I was about to start a new job and was needing gas money to get myself to work, so I decided to walk to a town called Troy to borrow money from my uncle. I did have a 6 pack of beer that I started to drink on before the walk just to warm me up. I was watching the movie The Door’s and I decided to start walking after my 4th beer. I opened the door and put my Blu tooth wireless headphones on and started

What Time is it? Asked the Hatman

13 November 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Nathan Romero. I am from Northeast Denver, in a neighborhood called Montbello. It was a summer night in late May early June and I was coming home from my night shift at UPS. As I am driving I can smell something awful-it smelled like something died and so bad I can taste it a little.  I continue driving with my shirt covering my nose and I lit a black and mild to mask the smell. I didn’t think anything of the smell as I thought maybe it was the waste management plant next to my neighborhood. As I get closer to my block and the smell starts to get stronger, I gag a little bit and as I’m sitting at the stop sign before my house, I

Ouija Board Hell?

12 November 2019 | ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Have you ever played with one? We used to play with one all of the time at school as kids. I don’t recall anything bad happening as a result of it but this Reddit user did…….. This story happened, in October of 2004. Back when I was still a 3rd-year high school student. My friends and I, stuck around the school, late at night, after our annual Halloween Party. We had agreed to try out my friend’s Ouija Board. It wasn’t the brightest idea, but we needed a thrill. We found a nice spot under a huge Narra Tree and proceeded with our half-assed ritual. There were 5 of us, 2 boys and 3 girls, we were all expecting some kind of paranormal contact. Rumors had it our school was

Haunted Timberline Lodge from THE SHINING!

11 November 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sometime in 1981, I was leaving Seoul, Korea, where I was stationed with the 501st Military Intelligence Battalion and coming home for a brief vacation with my parents in Sacramento. After this vacation, I would be leaving for an OPFOR (Opposing Forces) unit in Fort Knox, Kentucky. During this small vacation, I hooked up with an Army buddy of mine named Wayne Johnson and we headed up to Mount Hood, Oregon. We were both fans of Stanley Kubrick/Stephen King’s The Shining. In case you don’t know it yet, the exterior of the Overlook Hotel was filmed at the Timberline Lodge at Mount Hood in Oregon for the Stanley Kubrick’s film adaption of The Shining. The hotel is majestic and it is fit for a King and his royal court. The

Penrallt Hotel in Aberporth – Another Haunted Hotel

08 November 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A newly renovated hotel in Wales has had many reports of ghostly incidents from former staff and guests “including ghostly shadows flitting across the hall, doors slamming, wardrobe doors flying open in the middle of the night and ‘a presence’ in one of the rooms,” according a recent newspaper article. Like many Hotels, it has some permanent guests apparently. A team of investigators experienced a lot of activity including hearing water running with no obvious source, recorded ‘movement’ in the dining room, and even observed ‘a man stood by furniture’ in one of the bedrooms. “We captured many sounds on the many recordings we obtained – an area of interest was the side bar where two sounds were captured on two separate voice recorders,” they said according to Cambrian News.

The Creepy Camp Man

07 November 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have a true story that scares me to this day. It all started on my school camp in Borneo around middle school we were only staying for the week and a company ran our activities, it was mainly construction on a school playground for the native school children, and after a day of hard work we all headed back to the site, where we all stayed in bamboo huts six of us in each room. Me and my friends were all heading to bed and mosquito proofing our beds. I was the last one awake and locked our door so no other students came in to make pranks or whatever they thought was funny. It was a basic bamboo lock and all teachers and camp leaders knew how to
