Recurring Nightmare

24 June 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So to set this story is simple. I’m 28 years old a truck driver and have some problems sleeping sometimes. But anyway, moving on, I have this weird reoccurring nightmare and while it’s not all the time it usually comes in 1-2 week spurts. My dad passed back in 2007, which is a part of this story, but it actually begins in 2013. I left and went to Colorado to get my cdl (commercial drivers license). This nightmare always starts the same way and feels so real. I wake up and start my morning routine. Wake up, get up, and pull the curtain back over my windshield sit down, light a cigarette and crack a monster. But something catches my eye – it’s my dad sitting in the passenger seat.

The U.S. Hotel

21 June 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The U.S. Hotel on South Juniata Street in Holidaysburg, PA, dates originally to 1835. Adjacent to the western end of the Pennsylvania Canal and the Allegheny Portage Railroad, it was a stopping point for many people traveling west for the majority of the 19th century. It was destroyed by fire in 1871 and rebuilt in 1886, by brewmaster, Engelbert Gromiller. It no longer functions as a hotel but is now a restaurant of some renown. The hotel, like many old buildings of its kind, is purported to be haunted. I had the opportunity to eat here recently and I can tell you the food is superb. Having some extended family in the Alltoona, PA area, we met for brunch and had a great time. Our discussion during brunch, of course,

Unexplained Sightings at RAF Base

20 June 2019 | Your True Encounters

A few weeks ago, I was asked if I had ever seen a ‘ghost’. I’ve never actually put the experience down on paper (so to speak). I spent quite a few years with the Royal Air Force, my first posting was to RAF Buchan, situated in a small village called Boddam, around thirty miles north of Aberdeen. This would have been in the middle of July 1996. My billet was a small room (we didn’t have to share) and it was based at the back of the building (Tiree Block). Being on the top floor I was afforded a fantastic view of the North Sea, bleak in the winter but stunning in summer. To give you a rough idea of the layout of the room, my bed was next to

Demon Intruder?

17 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

One afternoon when I was about 10 or 11 years old, my mom and brother had left to run errands and my dad was outside working on our car. My sister and I were playing tag inside of our home. My sister tagged me while I was in the living room and she ran back into our bedroom. As I was walking back to our room where she’d ran, I heard a loud bang on the wall thats between the hallway and kitchen. This wall was not an area that could be accessed easily without moving our huge stove, refrigerator or dutch oven, so I ran our room and slammed the door behind me. I told my sister I thought someone was in the house and we pressed ourselves against

The Stay Over

10 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 1976, when I was 12, we lived in Lismore NSW Australia and my mother went to visit my sister in New Zealand. Returning to Brisbane, she had my two older brothers and myself drive up to Brisbane to meet up and stay at a friend’s place who we have known for 10 years at the time. They had only just moved into this house from across the road two weeks before we arrived. We all went to bed and my brother and myself had to share a double bed in a closed in Verandah that was up against the wall closest to the street with windows behind and beside the bed. Around 2 or 3am for some strange reason, I woke up, and saw a lady around 40

The Lady in White

06 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This didn’t happen to me. It happened to my grandmother, who lives in Mexico. My grandmother says that one morning, she was awoken very early in the morning by noises in the kitchen. My grandmother checked her alarm clock, the time read 3:30. My grandmother figured it was my aunt who lives with her, my mother’s youngest sister. My aunt used to get up early in the morning to get ready for work. My grandmother called out to her, “Is that you in there Elizabeth?” No response, absolute silence. All the sudden, out of nowhere, my grandma hears their kitchen door close really hard. They had a front door, and an extra door in the kitchen. My grandmother gets up and goes to make sure everything is okay. There is

Unwanted house Sitter

05 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story happened about 11 years ago. I live in the San Francisco Bay area and I had been at the job I’m at now for about 2 years. My boss had asked me to house sit and watch his dog for him while he went out of town for 3 days. I agreed to do it and went over there kind of excited to hang out with the dog and have a couple beers at his nice house which at the time was a major upgrade from my parents house. The first night started out as expected, a few beers, a movie and chill with the dog. So now it’s time for bed. The guest room where I was to stay was the last room of 3 in the

The Little Girl

04 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Once, when I was just seven-years old, I was getting ready for bed and outside my window I saw a little girl on my front lawn. She just stood there and looked at me. I was so scared that I ran out of my room to my older sisters room. About a week later, things got worse. I began to see her in my room and in the bathroom. One night, I went to the bathroom and she was stood right there in the hallway. I decided to just stay in my room and go back to bed. I’ve alway thought my house was haunted. I still see her but she stays away from me now. Submitted to Weird Darkness and My Haunted life too by Fashioncraz102

A Lifetime of Strange Events

03 June 2019 | Alien Abduction, Shadow people, Time warp, UFOs, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’m Carlos, and I live in Portugal and I’m 43 years old. I wanted to share with you my life experiences with something that so far I cannot explain. I would like your opinion on this lifetime of occurrences. I will be as brief as possible otherwise you will have 100 pages of episodes with experiences. The reason I am sharing this with you is not to get a solution to my problem because there isn’t one, and it’s become a part of my life and routine. My wife knows about it and accepts it, my son wont probably know about it so he isn’t ridiculed – but I want to share this knowledge with you and maybe you can provide me with an opinion on the matter. I’ve been

I Collect Haunted Items….

29 May 2019 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hi, my name is Kris from Oregon. I tend to collect haunted objects. I just gained a new one, a 1971 jack in the box. A little boy is allegedly attached to this item. The first night I had him. I was, along with everyone else in the house (I live with two of my aunts), asleep and I woke up to something still hazy and then I heard talking I didn’t recognize. I could have sworn I heard the box clicking open, as he’s in my room, I look (tv is still on so I have light), he’s still closed but now I’m trying to figure out the other noise, not the TV as I could barely hear it. Plus, it was coming from a different direction and was

Shadows in My Home

28 May 2019 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have a story from when I was about 14 years old around 1999. I’m 34 now. I grew up in Portland, OR and our house was haunted. One night I was walking down the hallway to go to my bedroom and I saw a full black shadow figure run across the wall. I remember freaking out and running while grabbing my sisters (I was babysitting as my parents went out that night) at the time, 4 and 5. I ran up our driveway terrified, knees shaking trying not to cry out of fear. I remember it having a large brimmed hat and dark. I got the courage to go back and try to recreate it but I couldn’t. Same night I’m still watching my two little sisters. It was

The Ghost in Belize

27 May 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My husband, friends and I recently got back from an amazing trip to Belize. The last place we stayed was in a town called Placencia, and we got a room in these beautiful cabanas right on the beach. We stayed there for a total of 3 nights, and the first night was uneventful. However, upon returning to our place the second night after a day of beach activities, it seemed that the atmosphere had changed a bit. My husband and I were sleeping in the living room, adjacent to the kitchen. Down the hall from the kitchen was a room to the right, where two of my friends were sleeping, and a room to the left, where my other friend was sleeping. At the end of the hall was the

A Ghostly Horse?

20 May 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So my mother has always had crazy things happen to her. My grandmother told us when my mom was born it was pouring rain and she could see a shadow outside the hospital window…. she cried that whole first day because she felt like something had come for my mom because she wasn’t meant to live but here we are… when my mom got older she started doing things she wanted to do, you know adolescent things. Well they had snuck out one day when she was about 14 and when it was time to leave everyone split off and walked home… it was past midnight. As my mom walked home, she heard something behind her… like horse hooves on the road. She stopped and turned around but nothing was
