The Elgin Mental Hospital Cemetery

13 January 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I heard about abandoned Elgin Mental hospital cemetery online and I read stories about hearing old hound dogs and chains from the former grounds keeper. I also heard that there are three bodies to every grave and have seen websites been were forced to remove this information. I’ve even seen websites saying that no cemetery exists. Well, if you have seen my independent film “Whom I Fear”, that is the cemetery. One day my then fiancée, (now wife), and I went driving around to find this cemetery. (A year before I filmed the movie there). We actually had to drive around the Elgin mental hospital and ask about 25 people where it was located. It took forever. Hours went by and 24 of those 25 people said there isn’t one.

Haunted Places You’d Never Want To Visit…

23 January 2018 | Your Stories

What is it about a location that makes it haunted? A gruesome murder? A bloody historical event? Drama? Intrigue? In this world there are many places that reputedly give people chills… this article is all about those places. Read on if you dare… 1. St. George’s Church Located in the Czech Republic, St. George’s Church is a beautiful monument that’s fallen into disrepair. As the paint started to peel and the windows fell out, the local city council wanted someone to do something with the building. Artist Jakub Hadrava had a bizarre idea: He’d fill up the pews with ghosts. There’s not really a grand artistic statement, by the way. Hadrava simply decided to make this church into one of the creepiest places on the planet. He received a commission on

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

30 June 2017 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

During the summer of 2010, five of my children were playing outside one afternoon, leaving my second eldest son indoors with me, but he was upstairs. He came downstairs and was visibly shaken and scared, I asked him… “What’s wrong?” He said while he was sat upstairs he had heard a woman say something to him very close to his ear but he couldn’t make out what the female voice said. It was all very strange. A few months later my friend came around one night she had a few glasses of wine while I had a soft drink, we had a good laugh and catch up she went home at about 11-30pm, so I retired to bed. Early that morning I was woken up abruptly by what sounded like

A 10 Foot Guardian Angel

22 June 2017 | Demons, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My final story took place around 2003, I was living in a row home with my then first wife. The house was hers and I was doing some work in the back yard. The row home was actually one building with 3 homes; ours was the middle one so we had a neighbor’s yard on each side of our own. At the back of the yards was a very narrow alley that t-boned into another alley. That alley bordered the yard to the right of ours if you were looking out our back door. I was standing in the middle of the yard facing the neighbor’s yard that bordered the second alley with the narrow alley to my left. I casually looked to my left slightly as I had a

The Bedroom Haunting

13 June 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We moved into a new house when I was fourteen. I always felt uneasy being upstairs or in my bedroom and had this constant feeling of being watched. Some small things had happened but the most notorious was that my wardrobe door would randomly open in the middle of the night. It always happened when I was still awake. I would spend hours reading until late at night, before falling asleep. These wardrobes had proper door handles that latched. You would need to lift the handle straight up to get it open. Alternatively, if you were hiding inside the wardrobe you could open it by squeezing the latch from the inside until it popped open. The first few times this happened, I simply thought that the door must have been

The Old Arkansas House

19 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was 3 years old when we moved into my childhood home. Prior to my family moving there, an old lady lived in that house. Before that it was owned by the people who ran one of the local churches. That old church was destroyed by a fire. Also, surrounding the house are several graveyards. One directly across the road and another on the other side of our large driveway. The one that really creeped me out was the private overgrown one that was connected to our backyard by a small wooded area. The stones were very old, crumbling and some knocked over I experienced the most upstairs in my bedroom and my parents room. When I was about four my older sister moved into her own room. I remember

Right Said Fred

18 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

Today, I pulled someone’s post from Reddit as it is really quite a good story. I am researching poltergeist stories for the next Kindle short and this one shows that sometimes, they do have a sense of humor. This also reminds me of an incident I experienced and wrote about in one of the MyHaunted Life books…. I experienced any number of bizarre happenings when I was in college. One was the poltergeist in my best friend’s apartment. Strange stuff had started happening there early in the spring semester of my second year. Doors would lock by themselves. Strange scraping and banging sounds came from the walls. A sense of presence and being watched settled over things, objects would disappear and be found elsewhere. Even my friend’s skeptic roommate started

Could My House Be Haunted?

14 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve lived in the same house in Alaska my whole life. It is a three-story house that is about 30-40 years old. Ever since I was a kid I was constantly terrified in my house sometimes when I’m walking up or down my stairs I get this sudden urge to run. I don’t know why. I always feel as though I am being watched, especially when I am alone, but even when I’m not alone. My father died of cancer a little over a year ago, in my house that I live in but I have yet to have any signs of him lingering in my house but my mom said on the one year anniversary of his death she woke up to him calling her name. Before he passed

Beware Duplexes in Nevada—You Might Get More Than A Tennant

05 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

This tale took place in Nevada about twenty years ago. My family moved into an apartment complex. It just seemed like a normal apartment. Nothing special. The first thing that started happening was the intense feeling of being watched. It didn’t matter if it was day or night you were being watched and not only from within the room, it also felt like something was in the room watching me. I tried to ignore it but a few nights later I was walking to the kitchen and saw a huge dark figure run from my mother’s room into my room. It didn’t really run as it didn’t touch the floor. It was also tall enough to touch the ceiling with the top of it’s head. This figure wasn’t really a
