The Green Stone

18 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I came across this intriguing story this afternoon and thought I would post it here. Sorry about the book plug at then end (not my book!)… In 1979 a team of researchers followed a series of clues left in an early seventeenth-century painting to discover a mysterious gemstone said to have belong to Mary Queen of Scots. When it was taken to an old Victorian house in the heart of England all hell broke loose. Perhaps the most remarkable true account of historical mystery and the paranormal ever told.

My encounter with the Hatman

17 January 2020 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I grew up in an old country house, built near the start of the 1900s in SouthWestern Ontario. The house was out of the city limits, down a dirt road with no street lights and the closest neighbors were no less than 200 yards away from our property line. We had a large yard that was well populated with large old-growth pine trees, cedars, maple, oaks and willows. The inside of our house was rather basic, with a kitchen, bathroom, living room and our patents bedroom on the main floor, while my siblings and I had our rooms on the upstairs floor. The staircase was a typical old-school wooden staircase, complete with creaks and groans as you made your way up each step. The staircase had three initial stairs before

Dragged from my Bed…

10 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was 5, we lived in a mobile home. The hall wasn’t long but, of course, for a child it was. My mom wouldn’t let us watch scary movies so what happened wasn’t triggered by that. So, I went to sleep but this night but there was a different feeling in my room. It felt scared for some reason. I would see dark shadows on my walls but I would just put the covers over my head. Suddenly, my covers were pulled off of my bed and I was afraid to open my eyes as I was being dragged out of my bed down the hall. I tried to scream and I couldn’t. When I opened my eyes there was a dark figure pulling at me. My Dad must

The Nocturnal Visitor

07 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 2017 and 2018, my friend and I brought our horses to ride the Gettysburg battle grounds. We both hoped to have a ghostly experience, but were blown away by the bright sunlit day time ghost figures I captured over my shoulder with my cell phone in 2017. After we returned to her home, she would talk about hearing someone walks around with boots on when she was alone. In 2018, I spent the night before our trip at her house. At some point in the night I was awakened by what felt like 2 hands sneakily pull my sheet down from the foot of the bed. My mind was awake, but sleep paralysis kept me from speaking or moving. I tried desperately to say “no” or “stop” but couldn’t.

The Shadow in the Doorway

01 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

When I was younger, whenever I was sick or feeling sad I would always see this tall dark figure standing in a doorway near me. It always took up a good part of the doorway and I later associated the smell of vodka to it. Now we lived in north Missouri, so I thought it was just an old coal miner that died close to the property we had. So I found it weird when it followed me to Georgia to do my basic training. Upon getting home and seeing family I told my Grandpa, we’ll call him Tom, about it and he told me the story of the apparition. He told me that he saw the same apparition the day his dad, my great-grandpa, died at work. He suffered

They are Real!

19 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

What I’m about to tell you occurred when I was just five years old; I’m 53 now, but this event sticks in my head like it just happened yesterday. All I can say is, shadow people are real. My mother and I had flown from the U.S to England to visit family; this was my first time meeting my Aunt and her husband and we would staying at their house for about two weeks. Aunt Lily and Uncle Vic had never had children, but when I arrived, they had a fully loaded toy chest waiting for me with all sorts of goodies. The two items I immediately clocked on to were a metal Bat-mobile and a Batman flashlight that would supposedly shine the “bat-signal” on to a wall by way

GrandMother Came Back….

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

My grandmother was very sick for a long time. I remember her talking about how she was ready to die, not in a depressed way, just in a way that she had come to terms with her illness and was tired of being miserable. She used to tell me she would come back and haunt me if I wasn’t nice to her. I remember joking with her about this on multiple occasions. She really had made peace with this life. In 2008 she started to get worse, her last hospital visit, in March, we thought we were going to lose her. She talked about the man in the corner that wore a black trench coat and hat. She isn’t the only person I have heard talk about this man when

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

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

Sara

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

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,

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.

He Sees Dead People!

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

My husband often sees people in our bedroom. He wakes up and sees people standing by the bed, walking through the bedroom, standing over him or me and sometimes sitting on the bed or peeling from behind the curtains. It has happened so much and for so long it doesn’t scare him anymore. It is always different people. They just watch him and won’t try to communicate. They aren’t people he has known. We think he sees dead people. Submitted to weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too by Brenda Victor

The Creature in the Woods

29 October 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

I was 6 when this happened so I don’t remember this that much… but here goes. This is what I do remember of that day. It was a dark night and a  full moon, and I was playing with some of my cousins. It was very boring and dumb to us that we had to sleep so… we stayed up. I told my cousins about many things that were very weird to me but I don’t remember the whole thing. All I do remember, is that I think that I told them about how I woke up one night and saw a figure out my hallway (with the kitchen on the right and the bathroom light on cracked for me in the hallway when I slept). I woke up for

House on the Hill

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

In 1986 I was visiting my mother, my older sister and my new step father in Cicero, Indiana it was in the country with nothing but corn fields for miles with one small town that contained a gas station, Dairy Queen, small grocery store and video store. I lived in San Antonio, Texas with my father, so this being out in the country like this was new to me. This would be the first and only time I visited at that home. The home in Cicero was big and on a lot of acres, there was a lot of room to roam, we had horses, and a man made pond. One morning I remember being in the kitchen and my sister and I over heard my mother and step father
