My Haunted Life Too


The Staring Child

19 April 2016 | April 2016

The house I am currently living in is pretty old, but I wouldn’t call it ancient. It’s just an old house, in a very old neighbourhood. I have lived here for twenty years and I’ve got a lot of stories about this house. Both my father, and I, have both witnessed things here that the average mind couldn’t comprehend. From a man walking through walls, to the sound of children singing in the basement. We stopped even bothering trying to work out what was behind all of these happenings. I have had the feeling of being watched in this house since I was six, or seven, years old. I can’t see anything most of the time—but I know something is watching me. I ignore it as much as I can.

The Dream

18 April 2016 | April 2016

A few years ago, my then husband woke up very agitated. He never dreamed and if he did, he could never recall any of them. This particular morning however, he recalled a vivid dream in which a close relative had passed away. I reassured him that probably all was well but not 30 minutes later, we received a phone call confirming that the relative had passed away during the night. Submitted by Katka.

The Light of the Virgin

16 April 2016 | April 2016

Many years ago, I had a boyfriend in Vienna and would sometime stay with him in his apartment. It was an old building and the apartment next door had been occupied by a very old lady who had just passed away. This one evening, I was staying there alone. I went to bed and switched out the lights. It was very dark as it was a gloomy apartment anyway with very thick curtains. I soon got to sleep but was awakened in the middle of the night by a bright light. To my utter amazement, the light seemed to emanate from a picture of the virgin Mary on the wall between the bedroom and the old lady’s apartment next door. I stared and watched this for some time before becoming

Pulling One’s Legs

15 April 2016 | April 2016

I used to live with another family sharing the house of my grandparents where I have experienced numerous unworldly encounters. The other family slept in a large room in the house, adjacent to our bedroom. One morning the mother of that family told us that one of her three sons sleeping in the largest bed in the room had been grabbed by the legs, and pulled down half-way off the bed the night before! Unfortunately, he did not see the doer. By the time he was startled by the pulling, and woke up, he already found his legs on the floor! Such prank was done more than once to more than one of her sons. Having no sorcerer to exorcize that spirit, her sons had to continue biting the bullet.

The Haunted House That Jack Built

14 April 2016 | April 2016

Our house was built by a man called Jack. Nothing in this house was done properly, and Jack died before he could do anymore work. The floors were uneven, the cabinets, walls and doors were all crooked. It’s not a nice house to look at—but that didn’t bother me. I had just gotten divorced and Jacks daughter had invited me to live in her father’s old house. I was happy to oblige. The first night I spent there was uneasy. The closet in my room gave me a really strong vibe. But you always think that about a new house, don’t you? There’s spooks in every new thing we do. Whenever I was in the kitchen I felt like I was being watched. I constantly felt terrified in the basemen.

Hand In The Dark

13 April 2016 | April 2016

Ever since beginning my new web series, “Weird Darkness“, I’ve wondered if it would come back to haunt me (pun intended). Last night I discovered I was not crazy for wondering so. I do not have a clock in my room, so I do not know at what time it took place, but I was awakened by a sudden pounding on my bedroom window, like a single knock on the pane of glass. I sometimes am startled awake by something like this, a sudden loud bang, but typically it is only that – and I usually chalk it up to waking from a dream and it only being my imagination that I heard something. This time, however, the loud awakening sound was only the beginning. A few seconds later, as

Shouting at a Ghost

12 April 2016 | April 2016

One night in my late teens, after an evening out with a girlfriend, we went to my house for a coffee. My family was away so there was just the two of us there. I had experienced a lot of strange activity in that house but this particular evening was one of the strangest. After making the coffee, we went into the front room and switched on the TV. We had just settled down when we both heard the front door open and close. We looked at each other puzzled and then I got up and checked in the hallway. There was no one there. A quick check of the door showed it was still locked with the key inside the lock. I returned to the living room and sat

I Couldn’t Stay

07 April 2016 | April 2016

Yesterday, I checked into a Hotel in the Netherlands and was given a room. The room initially looked good. It was very large and furnished in a period style. I took off my coat and began to unpack. However, I hear a sound that was a cross between a tapping and a dripping sound. It seemed to emanate from an big old closet standing in the corner of the room. I went to the closet and listened but it was the sort of noise that you cannot seem to trace. I opened the closet and it stopped. Thinking perhaps it was from next door or the heating, I resumed unpacking. However, when I closed the closet, the noise started again. By now, I was puzzled and I investigated that closet

The Ex’s Flowers

04 April 2016 | April 2016

When I first met my current partner, he told me some very strange tales about his life and about real magic. Some of the stories he told me were really strange – things that moved, pictures falling off walls around him, that sort of thing. I thought it wonderful talk, but that was about it. A couple of weeks later, my ex, who wanted me back, bought me some flowers. They were pretty and although I had no intention of going back to him, I put them in a vase and positioned the vase next to the roses my partner had bought me in another vase. I told my partner about this who was several thousand miles away at the time on a trip. By the way, I didn’t own

A View Of A Lake

04 April 2016 | April 2016

My story centers around the residence of my first older cousin. The house my cousin currently lives in has a history that still lives in the house. Prior to moving, my cousin did not live too far from his present location and he was in the process of relocating when a view of a lake came to him in a dream back into 2000. The house is situated across from a water treatment plant and the second floor of the house that my cousin lived has a balcony with a view of the lake. An older woman who owned the house and whom my cousin also looked out for lived on the first floor until her death. African Americans could not stay in hotels in certain cities at the time

Something Strange Is Going On In My House

01 April 2016 | April 2016

I heard my faucet in my bathroom room, not completely turned on, but a steady stream. I never use that bathroom; I use the big bathroom attached to my bedroom. I woke up sweating this morning. The AC switch was actually cut off. As soon as I turned it on it was working fine. Then my CD player started playing. But it was playing music from years ago—not the CD in the player. I went over to it and although the singing was loud, and clear, the actual CD inside the player was not spinning. I turned it off, turned around, walked to the kitchen, heard something in living room, walked back in, and my CD player was open. Again I truly thought I was losing it. This activity starts

The Ghost In The Clock

30 March 2016 | March 2016

Here is a short story from my book – Ghosts in the Machines. When still just a girl, the lady recounting the story had visited her grandmother’s neighbors house together with her grandmother. At some point, she needed to go to the bathroom and on the way back, she noticed the huge ornate grandfather clock. Something like steam seemed to be emanating from the clock and, as she watched innocently, this steam materialized into the outline of a man. The man was nice and spoke to her kindly and, at the time, she wasn’t afraid at all. On returning to the living room she told her grandmother about the clock and the man and took the two astonished older ladies into the hall. Of course, there was nothing there but
