Black Eyed Man on The Powerlines

07 May 2021 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This took place one summer several years ago. We were in the back yard. My mother was sitting in a chair to my left and dad was sitting to the right, I was in the middle with my favorite blanket. It was a mild day, extremely pleasant– until I looked at the power line running across the backyard. Now on this power line was a tall man walking in black. The one thing that makes me remember this is the eyes. They were completely black. That feeling when he looked at me though just terrified me. I blinked and he was gone. Nobody else saw him. It was one of the most terrifying things that has ever happened to me. He was standing still on the powerline, he didn’t move,

The Blues Ghost Music Channeler

07 May 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Brant Buckley and I have been practicing Kriya Yoga and energy healing for over 10 years. I have been aware of the paranormal for some time now. I am a musician too and I did a lot of spiritual channeling and tried bringing Blues ghosts onto the recording of my new song. “Times Strange” is an ode to the Delta Blues Masters in particular Skip James. I have gone to all of the old Blues Graves in the Chicago area: Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf, and Willie Dixon. Their ghosts and shadows are my teachers. I wanted to create something very haunting and ghostly in a Bluesy kind of way. The only 2 Blues guys that I am aware of who have done

My Dog Came to Say Goodbye

05 May 2021 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sparky was a white fluffy American Eskimo dog. He had just turned 14 in January. He was my dad’s dog but when he moved to Europe last year, we felt Sparky was not in good enough health to make the plane ride. The grief of losing his owner was buried so deep in him that it started to make him sick, no matter how much I doted on him. The seven months I lived by myself with Sparky, he was my dog and I know that he loved me just as much as I loved him. We would take nightly walks around by the lake near my house. Whenever I watched TV in the living room he would sit by me, start licking my leg, and after an appropriate amount

Ghosts of Tripadvisor

03 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was just googling around and found some coverage for the FIRST book based on reviews from Tripadvisor. Published in mid-2020, the book is a collection of reviews of haunted experiences of people staying hotels as found in Tripadvisor reviews? Really? Well, that makes me a little angry because, in fact, I published the FIRST book of Tripadvisor reviews called Motel Hell – Strange Reviews of Haunted Hotels back in 2018! Here is a review from that book…. Sylvia Hotel, Vancouver The Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver was built in 1911 and is designated a heritage building. It looks like the sort of place that may be haunted and it does have that reputation. Despite that, I could only find one review in which something paranormal might have occurred there. My

A Case of the Creepy Mimickers?

30 April 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In a browse of some creepy stories on Reddit, I came across this by user u/tarantidow and it rang many bells for me… so many stories posted by you all that resonate with what this person calls a mimicker! What do you all think??? (Lightly edited by me)… Hello everyone. I know that many people may not believe in the paranormal and/or supernatural and I respect that. For those who don’t believe in the paranormal or supernatural, just enjoy my posts as a sort of “story time” as I am not here to try and convince anyone that the experiences I have had have been and continue to be real.

The Blackness in my Mirror

29 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The other night, I found myself suddenly wide awake at just after 3 am. I awoke with a jump and figured I had had a bad dream. After calming myself I rolled over and closed my eyes to go to sleep again. But as I did so, I caught sight of a reflection in my wardrobe mirror of a darkened figure. I shot bolt upright. There in the mirror was a dark figure, so dark that black isn’t a good enough description. At first, it was formless, just a blackness. Then it began to take shape. I sat bolt upright watching this with increasing horror before suddenly realizing that – it was only a reflection. I mean, there was nothing there in the room – just the reflection of whatever

The Tea Party

23 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I spotted this on Reddit and thought I would repost it here as it is a very nice short story… My father was on hospice when I became pregnant. He said he prayed to still be here when I had the baby and he was. He passed away 2 months later. Fast forward 3 years and my daughter was playing in her bedroom having a tea party. She was talking so I asked who she was talking to. She responded, ” I’m talking to my granddaddy and he says he loves you little monkey”. I froze because little monkey was his nickname for me from my childhood. I felt comforted that my dad was watching over my daughter Posted on Reddit by u/Certain-Possession46

Beware of Strangers

19 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One afternoon in 2003, my 8 years old daughter was playing with her dolls out on our front porch when suddenly a young girl around the age of 15 years old was standing in front of her. My daughter looked up asked her what she wanted and the girl replied, “I want you to come with me to a place where it is much more fun than here.” Then my daughter Denielle realized she was a stranger and had no way of getting to our front porch because she would need to go through the front gate which is always locked for security reasons. Then she looked at the girl’s feet and saw that she was floating about 6 inches from the ground. Scared, she said no and stood up

The Haunted Catacombs below Jihlava

16 April 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

The catacombs beneath Jihlava in the Czech Republic are mysterious. They are located beneath the entire city and multiple levels and no one knows exactly why they exist! People have reported that in one part of these tunnels – the corridor of Svitivka – they have seen people with long necks and strange heads, and have heard noises or whispers. The corridor glows with a strange greenish light when unlit. This glow apparently comes from a coating on the sides of the tunnel that was put there by the Nazis – tho no one really knows why. In fact, with an interest in the occult, the Nazis seemed very interested in the tunnel and it is said that Hitler himself believed it the entrance to another dimension.

So, this story was shared with me by my father, but the person involved in this story is my Dad’s uncle who I saw last week. he’s 85 now and I actually asked him if the story that my dad had shared with me was true.

Back when he lived in Mexico, he and his family lived in a suburban town. and one night this small block in the center of the town was having a party.  My uncle was still in his teens and thought that he’d attend.

The Ghost That Didn’t Like Her Husband

31 March 2021 | Your True Encounters

On a beautiful day in the year 2000, my sister, who was a nurse a large hospital in the city, was coming home from church one Sunday. Feeling exceptionally happy, she unlocked the door to her circa 1970 home, built buy our father. As the door opened, a pair of swinging doors slammed shut in the ajoining dining room…. thus began a series of strange events that would haunt the house and the family for a series of years. The first events began with turning on and off the various TV’s in the house… this happened with such consistency that she began to address the “ghost”…. all members of my large 6 member family would visit and wonder at how the TV continued to act up at certain times (

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
