The Girl in the Chair

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

I can assure you, this story is 100% true. This took place during March during spring break. If you dislike any paranormal things, I suggest you don’t continue! My name is Alexa. I’m a young teenager with average grades and an average life. It happened when I was in the middle of 6th grade. During Spring Break, I was invited to stay at my friends house for two nights. It was the day I was heading to her house. This was the first time I that I had visited her dads house and only ever been to her mothers place before. After a long drive, I slipped off my headphones that were blaring some Ke$ha song. I got out of the car with a wide grin and scurried eagerly to meet

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

The Ghost of a Man Possessed

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

My mother, father, and I were visiting my grandparents in Tennessee. At the time, two of my uncles and one of my aunts were living with my grandparents, as the house belonged to one of my uncles. I adored visiting my grandmother and was very fond of her. Two weeks into our annual visit I saw an old man standing in the doorway smiling at me. To this very day, I can remember every detail about him. He was a little bald and his skin was gray, and had a beige shirt on with almost black pants. I remember turning around to continue playing with my dolls and turning back at least two or three times and seeing the man still there, pulling faces at me. I laughed as I

Friendly Ghosts From The Civil War Era

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

When I was eleven, my family moved to a larger home that was built just before the Civil War. It was in a small Missouri town. At school the kids and teachers would say how the house was haunted and ask how we could stand living in it. We would often hear the footsteps on the stairs, and the sound of humming. My mom said that she came into the kitchen one morning and caught a glimpse of a very large lady who was dressed like a housekeeper. She was cleaning the floor and humming. My dad was told that there had been slaves on the property and had found the remnants of slave houses. I had had a bicycle wreck and had a concussion. My mom was sitting up

The Woodworking Spirit

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

In all the time I have done paranormal investigation I have experienced some of the strangest things. Some not so scary and some would make the hair on my neck stand up. Quite a few stories I can tell you would totally freak you out, but one story in particular, well, let’s just say would leave you wondering. We had lived in an apartment for about 3 years and strange things would occur. Shadows moving in and out of rooms. Things going missing and turning up somewhere totally different. In this apartment there was a basement. I wanted to put a little workshop down there as I worked with wood for a long time and wanted to have a wood shop. Now I know some of you think basements are

Haunting at 824 Sweetbriar

05 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This all started back in the summer of 1965. It was a hot August day. My oldest brother and I were home and were about to make some lunch. We started making lunch and about 20 minutes pass before we heard a knock on the front door. My brother said, “Go see who that is.” So I go and open the door – but no one was there. I closed it and walked back telling him no one was there. So he just said, “OK“, and he continued to make sandwiches while I made the soup. Tomato soup to be exact. Some time went by when again, we heard a knock at the front door. Again, he asked me to go see who it was. So, I go to see

The White Skeletal Entity

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

I was about six years old and my parents had just moved us into a new house. From the first visit I never felt comfortable in that house and still, 15 years later I hate being there alone. The first couple of months after moving in we had a few incidents, keys would go missing, electricity would cut, creeks, and bangs on the walls but my parents reassured me that it was just because it was a new house and we weren’t used to its personality yet. One night I was woken by a feeling of being really cold. I sat up and opened my eyes, and there was a figure standing in my doorway. The only way I can describe it is that it was like death, but all

Am I Haunted?

01 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My story begins when I was eight years old and my mother was cleaning the back half of the house. As she was coming to the front, I heard her tell my brother to shut the door if he was going to use the restroom and then she walked on like nothing happened. She reached the front room and stopped dead in her tracks and said to my brother who was there with me “How did you get out here so fast.” I asked “Who were you talking to mom?” and she said “I was talking to your brother.” I now think that my mother saw my brothers’ doppleganger. When I was twelve, we moved to a new house. The first night there, we had to call the police department

The Phantom Knocker

27 April 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Since February I have been hearing knocks all around my house. It started one night at around 3am. I was having a tough time falling asleep so I went downstairs to watch TV. I’m sitting on the couch watching infomercials, when I heard a male voice call me from my room. I go to my room and asked my husband what he needed but he was fast asleep. A few weeks later, I heard knocks under the house, but I dismissed it as neighborhood cats under the house. That happens all the time. I went to bed and thought nothing of it until I heard three really loud bangs on my front door at around 3am in the morning. I went to get a bat and see who was at

The Friendly Ghost Who Haunts My Dreams

25 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We moved into a bigger house recently where I have been having some strange experiences. These are not frightening, or creepy, but do interest me. I was sleeping one night, having a bad dream, I woke up out of nowhere. I was laid on my left side facing my room and as I turned over to go back to sleep on my right side, I looked through my bedroom door and saw a dark male shadow figure. I did a double-take but when I looked back it was obviously gone. It didn’t feel threatening nor did it frighten or startle me. In fact, I just rolled over and went back to sleep peacefully. I believe this spirit has been watching over me and he could have even pulled me out

Crouching Ghost, Hidden Motive: A True Tale of the Paranormal

24 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your True Encounters

When I was twelve years old, my family lived in an old house in Texas. It was a four-bedroom house. I shared my room with my baby sister and my brother and parents had their own rooms. The last room was used as an office. Every night when everyone went to sleep they would close their doors except for my room. I don’t know why… I just didn’t like my door closed. We had an extremely long dark hallway. One night, when I was the only one awake, I was watching TV as usual when I saw a tall male figure in the corner of my eye peek into my room and when I turned to look he would back up and hide. For some reason, I didn’t really feel

The Witches Prison

21 April 2017 | Ghosts in the news, Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

This month saw the placing on the local real estate market of a small property in St. Osyth, Essex. That anyone would want to live there is, I think, unlikely but it may make for a wonderful paranormal business of some type and be an interesting investment as a result. The house is nicknamed ‘The Cage” and it has been featured in several television paranormal investigations. For what looks like a small village house was actually a mediaeval prison and one of its more famous ‘residents’ was Ursula Kemp, hung as a witch in 1582. The house was used as a prison up until 1908. Poor Ursula Kemp, like many older and lonely ladies of her time, kept a cat for company and did things like minding children, making herbal

Making The Rounds….

10 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was raised by my mom and step-father, who was, in every way, my Dad. He always referred to me as his daughter and I loved him more than anything growing up. He was part of the Sheriff’s Department based in a major city in the state we lived in. He was raised during the depression, a first generation born in the US Italian. He was one of the smartest, kindest, most gentle men I’ve ever met. In 25 years of being a police officer, he only drew his gun a handful of times, and never shot anyone. He was forced to retire in 1985 due to a heart condition and developed emphysema several years later. He had his first heart attack when I was 13, and the second when

GrandMa Came Back

06 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was a child, my family and I lived in a very old house, which my grandfather had built on his own. It was so old that we sometimes saw cockroaches in the kitchen. In the kitchen I used to wash the dishes together with my grandma. But one day my grandmother suddenly felt very weak and she died. We were very sad. I can remember the funeral because, even though I was very young, it was my first experience where any of my relatives had died. Time passed. One day I was washing dishes in the kitchen. It was a very hot and stuffy day. Then I felt something behind me. I thought it was my mother, so I looked back. There was no one there except this
