Who Was The Old Man in my Bedroom?

22 March 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The strangest thing that happened to me was when I was growing up in Tennessee. My mother was ill and out of work and we lived in a very old house near Knoxville. We all slept in the same bedroom, my mother, my younger sister, and I. This arrangement was done in order to close off the other rooms for better heating. My story takes place late one night. We had gone to bed early and I had been sleeping soundly until I suddenly woke up for no reason, and had a feeling that someone was watching me. I turned over to look toward my mother, who was asleep in the bed with my younger sister. I then noticed something that really terrified me. Sitting in an old chair, between

The Scratching Box

10 March 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 1963, I took a trip to Weatherford, Texas, out in the country to spend some time at my Aunt Jay (Julia) and Uncle Guy’s house – the Rock House we called it because it was made entirely out of multicolored stone. Uncle Guy built it himself as a wedding gift to his bride, Jay. Soon after, a son Joe was born, then a girl, Ann. When the kids grew up, The son Joe married a girl with the same name as his sister – Ann, when she was only 17yrs old. I was 14 and attended the wedding. On this particular trip, I was 18 yrs old and Joe’s Anne, 21. She was staying at the Rock House visiting her in-laws while Joe was out of town. We

The Shadow

24 February 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have just moved into a new house and not all the furniture was in so I was sleeping on the floor. I couldn’t sleep because you know those weird feelings you get when you move into a house?  I looked at the bathroom and all I saw was a tall black figure! I was freaked out so bad I almost had a heart attack, but no one else saw it, so I was like what was that? It was really scary but that’s all I can really remember.   Submitted to Weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too by Elizabeth Quick

Living in A Haunted Home.

16 February 2021 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

So I’ve lived in the same house to the current date and we’ve had some strange things happen. I can only recall a few that I have experienced personally and can still remember as some of them happened when I was very young. To start from the beginning I remember my mom telling me that when I was between 1-2 years old I would be playing with my toys in the living room being quite happy and content, and then after a while, I would run to her scared asking if she sees the man in the corner. She couldn’t see anyone, but I refused to play in that room for a while. Eventually, I’d go back in, play, and see the man again and go find my mom. From

The Fire Next Door

08 February 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was very small when this happened. Though at the time, I did not understand why the things I remember happening took place. It was quite an amazing revelation to find out the whole story when I was old enough that it would not scare me. I remember one day as my family was driving toward home on our busy street, that we could see a lot of flashing lights. I remember my mom and dad’s concern as we got closer, because of all the fire trucks and emergency vehicles in front of our home. Luckily it was not our place, but our neighbors home that had caught fire. Being so young I really didn’t realize the gravity of what had happened. I remember how charred furnishings and a big

Cleansing of the Russell house

14 January 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was exactly two years since we last investigated the dark Russell house. I got a call from Chuck that the house was finally being cleansed. I told him about 6-weeks before that if he was having someone check out the house, that I would come back. Just to make sure they were legit. I was going back to the Russell’s home….after all that darkness we felt and experienced. I was going back, and with my now wife pregnant once more, she did not come with. But, my partner in the paranormal field, Andre did come back with me. We arrived at the house a few minutes before the team that was cleaning the house arrived. The home felt off. Like it knew something was coming for it. The paranormal

The Comfort of Spirits

31 December 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The story I am going to tell is obviously true. My brother and I had a horrible childhood. He would get beat a lot. My Best friend and I were retiring to my room one night which was across from my brother’s room. We were walking up the stairs and he was immediately to the right. We both looked in his direction, the door open and we saw a full-body spirit leaning over the side of his bed where his head was. She was caressing my brother’s head! My best friend and I just looked at each other and went into my room. When we got into the room and shut the door we looked at each other and said, “Did you just see that!” we were stunned, but not

Mother’s Pre-Sight

28 December 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My mother, when she was about 17 years of age, lived in an average middle-class neighborhood in a semi-rural town in the Northeastern US that has since become quite popular, and regards her childhood years fondly. The account that I am about to tell did become a pivotal moment in my mother’s life, that continues to affect her to this day. One late night, my mother was lying on her bed reading (which was not uncommon–she was and still is one to stay up into the wee hours of the night), while the rest of the household slept. She happened to look up into the doorway that led into the hall, and saw there an apparition of her mother, who was living at the time, standing in the door, floating

A Haunted Life

04 December 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I want to tell you a story. A story about all of the weird happenings in my life. I have always been a believer in the spiritual side of the paranormal. I believe I was 3 or 4 when I remember my first encounter. Shadow people. I remember seeing shadows of a male figure from the corners of my eyes at my grandparent’s home walking down the hallway or passing by the threshold of doorways. There was one time in particular that I remember sitting in their living room, tv on, and playing with my legos and blocks. I was about 6 or 7 and my grandfather drove a truck for roadway and would stay gone all week. My grandmother was a vendor for Disney and Buena vista and was

My Parents’ Haunted Home

01 December 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My parents house is haunted. I’ve known this since we moved in when I was 14. Things would constantly be moved around and us kids were always blamed for it. It was a two story house and we would always hear footsteps coming from upstairs when no one was up there, or even home at all. It became so normal that we were always surprised when friends mentioned it. It was the norm for us. It wasn’t the only thing that happened while I lived there. One night I was up late in our living room and my parents were asleep. I heard a scratching at the backdoor, which I assumed was our dog wanting back inside. I got half way across the room before remembering that the dog was

The Clothes Were Swinging

30 November 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Growing up, my best friend and I, would play with the ouija board. As we grew older, she would be able to do automatic writing. I tried but could never clear my mind enough. I was being abused by my step-father from being eight. By this time I was sixteen. She and I were up late doing the automatic writing and in what we called one of our sessions it said, ” Beware of the closet, there will be a warning and something is going to happen, but you will be ok.” A few months go by and I am fooling around with my boyfriend and I look at my closet for some reason and I saw this pale boy with red lips and slick black hair smiling at me.
