Another Haunted Hotel

22 March 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My last book was Motel Hell and it was a collection of reviews by scared guests of various hotels and motels around the world. It’s amazing what you can find on TripAdvisor! Anyway, here is another review of a Wetherspoons in Bodmin, Cornwall for you. It’s not in the book…….. but the place looks creepy! A reviewer on TripAdvisor said of this Bodmin pub and hotel – Chapel-an-Gansblydhen – We stayed in Bodmin for 2 nights and visited the Wetherspoons converted Wesleyan Methodist chapel on the first night. We loved the atmosphere of the building and the original features that have been retained were a pleasure to see. We spent the evening envisaging what it would have been like in the mid-1800s, and the comings and goings of the churchgoers

The Shadow in the Darkness

25 February 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In line with my last book – Motel Hell – I remain interested in hotel hauntings and experiences. I found this experience on Reddit. When I was 15 I traveled to Europe with my family. We stayed in Ettal, Germany in a small inn for a few nights. My parents had a double on the second floor, my sisters had the double bedroom next to theirs, and I was lucky enough to have a single room all to myself at the far end of the hall. When we went to check in to our rooms, as soon as I entered the hallway our rooms were in, I remember almost feeling as though I walked into a ‘wall’ of… bad energy? I just felt so unnerved and uneasy in that hallway,

The British Soldier in the Mist

30 January 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I used to spend my Christmas holidays with my family on my Uncle’s ex-wife’s farm in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. Many years ago, this area was the location of many skirmishes between the Xhosa people who were moving south after being displaced by the Zulus, and the British who were deployed to the area to defend colonial settlers. There was more than one battle on the farm, where there is an old graveyard with only a few remaining grave markers of unknown British soldiers. Each simple cast iron cross with only with the words – ‘Here lies the body of a Brave British Solder’ The farm is situated at the mouth of the Kariga River next to the sea and was an idyllic place for young children

UFO’s & Demonic Shadow Figures

08 January 2019 | Haunted locations, UFOs, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I am a veteran of the US Air Force and would like to share my personal stories of UFO sightings, and of a demonic entity. I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan at Kadena Air Force Base from 2000 to 2003. Okinawa is one of the most haunted places on earth. While stationed there in 2002 I witnessed a UFO fly over me at what seemed to be about 50 feet. It was diamond shaped aircraft and had numerous multi-color exterior lights. It hovered for a bit almost as if it sensed my presence. I quickly hid under a Banyan tree and in a flash, it shot off disappearing into the night sky. In 2003, I was attacked one night in my sleep by a dark, shadowy figure that held me

You Are Not My Mom!

04 January 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So this happened about 10 years ago now. I have to start by saying I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls. Both born by C-section. I know its a strange detail but it is important. When my eldest daughter was around three, a friend and I decided to take both girls to a ghost town near the little town we lived in in Idaho. Everything was going great, most of the buildings were roped off so you really couldn’t get to close to anything. It hadn’t been a ghost town for very long. In the window of one of the houses was A land before time VHS tape. But it was fun. We were almost done walking through the paths when my little blond baby looked at me and

The Headless Priest

21 December 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It happened at the San Sebastian Cathedral Church. Its a cathedral, which was dedicated to Saint Sebastian in 1686 and it was the year 1987 when I was just 13 years old and performing as a sexton wearing those long white robes (cassock) We assist the priest on saying the holy mass. It was 6:00 AM and my time to assist at the service as a sexton. I was summoned then by my senior sexton to go to the priest room to get the prayer book that the priest forgot to bring. Through the darkness of the room in only a slight blink of light I saw this figure and it was a headless priest wearing his cassock. I rushed out of the room and I told my fellow sexton

The White Figure in the Forest

11 December 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 2010 in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, my friend lived in a part of town that has a lot of forest area and his backyard was a good couple acres of forest with houses surrounded in the distance. Me and him would go and explore the forest all the time because it was quite mystical and just a cool place to wonder. This one night I and my friend went outside in his backyard at probably close to 1 am to go explore and there’s a steep cliff when you first walk in to the forest. When we were standing at the cliff before the pathway leading down to the rest of the forest I could see a tall white illuminated figure and it was in between two trees

Ghosts in Gettysburg

06 December 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Ever since I was young, I have loved ghost stories and American History. My parents loved it because it gave them the excuse to go to Gettysburg for family vacations. We ended up going twice, the first time I was 11 and the second time I was around 15. The first trip, we went on ghost tours and wanted to have an experience, but it was pretty uneventful. The second trip is when these stories take place. Our paranormal encounter was not necessarily terrifying or shocking in any way, instead, it’s several small experiences that made me a true believer in the paranormal. The second day we were there, my Dad and I decided to take a tour of Ginnie Wade’s house. She is the only civilian to have died

Haunted Psychosis

23 November 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was born and raised in Louisiana. This state is well known for it’s colorful culture, divine cuisine, and of course, spooky history. As long as I can remember, pretty much everywhere we lived was either haunted, or several homes throughout neighborhood were. Abandoned schools, old factories, crumbling houses — practically everything was said to harbor one kind of spirit, demon, or other such boogins. We moved around a lot as my parents looked for work, but the place I call my “Home Town” is St. Francisville, Louisiana. This may sound familiar to those who follow the Haunted House scene, as this is the town where the legendary Myrtles Plantation resides. It’s been featured on Unsolved Mysteries, National Geographic, and various other “Haunt Hunter” shows. The National Geographic Explorer filming

More than just books in the Library

22 November 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Many years back, I worked security work in Sydney Australia. As often happens you do a lot of night work, along with the late hours and strange people at that time, comes the other worldly. I worked with a fellow guard and we got to discussing the buildings resident. After explaining that story to him, he then opened up about his time at the State Library of New South Wales. He told me of the night New Years Eve 2000, when sitting in the control room, he and another guard noticed a rather attractive young woman in period dress. Crossing the main yard. Which was gated and closed to the public. So they radioed the guard on patrol and dispatched him to the area to escort her out and to

The Phantom Door Knocker

16 November 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

After working in a building, that was reportedly haunted, for 27-years, I will submit interesting stories on that building at a later date. I retired this summer and went to work part time for a different company. The company that I work for is right in the middle of farm land so I’m sure it has a lot of history. Right after I started working there, I was asked by a co worker if I believed in ghosts. I told her I did and she asked me if I had ever noticed anything weird that went on especially in the women’s rest room. I mentioned that I had heard water run and the hand towel dispenser go off when I was in there by myself, but had just put it
