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.

The Spirit of My Mother Visited Me

15 July 2019 | July 2017, Your Stories

A few years ago while watching television, a sudden bright, amber flash, similar at first to a huge strike of a match, appeared to my left, which eventually morphed into a figure, then unmistakably, my Moms face. I watched in amazement as the light dissipated and then, I realized my Moms spirit disappeared and now I noticed an outline under my bedding blankets and suddenly her voice saying, “I’m cold”, which in life she expressed regularly. I proceeded to get another blanket and covered her. She didn’t say anything else, but she didn’t need to since I talked nonstop while noticing the blankets moving up and down to the sound of her breathing! This scenario actually lasted throughout the night into the next morning. There is much more that occurred

Touched By A Guardian Angel On A Rainy Day

06 June 2018 | Your Stories

Not a creepy tale at all. Maybe a more uplifitng story for Wednesday is in order? Maybe this is something for us all to take comfort from? Is there someone watching over us and making sure we stay safe? A few years ago, something strange happened. I’m not sure if I can call this a paranormal occurrence but I want to share it with you. Make of it what you will. I was sixteen, still attending school and on this day… very late. I had overslept, missed my bus, missed my breakfast and I was looking at walking all the way to school in the pouring rain which was at least a forty-five-minute walk. I was halfway down my street when a car pulled up and a man opened his

Spirit Communicating Through My Dreams

05 June 2018 | Your Stories

Strange account today from a lady called Ari who has been seeing something spooky in her dreams.  I’ve been having some nightmares lately involving a man standing at the bottom of my bed. I can’t see his face but can make out his outline. He doesn’t move. He just stands at the bottom of my bed. I presume he is staring at me? When I wake up in the morning I can vividly remember the dream. It has been happening for several weeks. I have also started to notice that little things have been happening around the house. I live alone, and I woke up last Thursday to find that the fridge door was wide open. I also found my wallet had been moved, and I’ve been noticing tapping and

King’s Playhouse ‘hot spot’ for paranormal activity, says Haunted crew

30 May 2018 | Your Stories

A great new article from http://www.cbc.ca. After spending a few days and nights in the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown, P.E.I., the crew of the TV show Haunted say they were glad to get out of there. “I’m a little happy to not be in that space today or tonight,” said director of photography, Dillon Garland. The theatre has a rich history in the community and part of the history involves some ghostly legends, such as one about a little girl sitting in one of the theatre’s seats. Those stories motivated the crew from Halifax to spend two days and two nights in the theatre in hopes of seeing paranormal activity for themselves. Their show, which airs on EastLink Television, tries to capture haunted locations in the Maritimes. And Garland said they had results. “We had

The Family Who Fear A Poltergeist Is Haunting Their Home

10 May 2018 | Your Stories

This article was originally featured on www.themirror.co.uk. A family plagued by a ‘poltergeist’ set up cameras to capture its sinister tricks – and were left terrified when the footage revealed repeated paranormal activity . Husband and wife Robert and Pauline and their son Barry, who withheld their surnames for fear of attracting flocks of ghost hunters, have lived in the house in Gravesend, Kent, for 10 years. However around six years ago the family began noticing strange goings-on that centred around Barry, 33, and his bedroom – leading them to believe it could be a ‘portal’ to the other side. Once friends and neighbours became too terrified to even visit their home, Robert decided to install CCTV cameras earlier this year to see if he could catch the ghoul. Spooky footage shows a mug

The Spirit Of Our Grandfather Won’t Ever Leave Us In Peace

16 March 2018 | Your Stories

I really enjoy reading about the paranormal. I’ve grown up with it in a way. Several people have seen strange things in our house. Seven generations of our family have lived, and died, here. My uncle always claims that he saw his father, after he had died, sitting in a chair in the dining room looking down starting at his hands. Apparently he was perfectly solid and completely unaware of my uncle standing in the doorway watching him. Uncle James blinked, and the spirit just disappeared. My father said that he saw the same man walk straight through a closed door. He also saw him peering through a window at him when he was outside gardening. My brother says that same grandfather walked into his room and sat talking to

Katie Hopkins was just 10 years old when she saw her first spirit. The longtime Cedar Rapids area resident was in the home of her neighbor, who had recently died. Hopkins said she and some others were in the basement of the home when she looked and “saw this guy rocking in a rocking chair.” “It was a quick, brief moment,” Hopkins said. “That was the first thing I can really remember being my first paranormal experience.” That encounter would be her first, but far from her last. Now Hopkins, a 30-year-old admissions adviser at Kaplan University, has chronicled her experiences with the paranormal in her recently published book, “‘Seeing’ Spirits: Opening the Empathic Door.” Hopkins said there are lots of books on the paranormal out there and she’s read

Nothing looks particularly out of the ordinary as someone passes through the living room to the kitchen.
