Your True Encounters

18th floor of the Milwaukee Hilton

20 January 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We were in downtown MILWAUKEE, getting ready for Milwaukee Mighty Con. Pulling into our parking lot we see the scary looking Hilton hotel. Out of a scene of Ghostbusters. I look up, and make the comment to my friend Luigi, that place is haunted. We check in, and find out our room is on the 19th floor. 19 out of 25 floors. 25th floor not acceptable for guests. I ask a few employees if any hauntings occur, they have no reply. We go eat dinner, and return.  On getting a second bed (a roll away for luigi). Turns out we run into the head of security, and when I ask him if the giant building is haunted…he replies with “what do you want to know”. Thus, our long paranormal adventure

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 Elgin Mental Hospital Cemetery

13 January 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I heard about abandoned Elgin Mental hospital cemetery online and I read stories about hearing old hound dogs and chains from the former grounds keeper. I also heard that there are three bodies to every grave and have seen websites been were forced to remove this information. I’ve even seen websites saying that no cemetery exists. Well, if you have seen my independent film “Whom I Fear”, that is the cemetery. One day my then fiancée, (now wife), and I went driving around to find this cemetery. (A year before I filmed the movie there). We actually had to drive around the Elgin mental hospital and ask about 25 people where it was located. It took forever. Hours went by and 24 of those 25 people said there isn’t one.

Mysterious Mist & Strange Anomalies Appear In Parade Pics

11 January 2021 | Bizarre, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was at the Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village with one of my MeetUp groups last year, when Halloween may’ve come calling with its own trick or treats. We were all in costume, marching in the parade (I was Geisha Guy) and I was taking pics with my cell. I was photographing a young guy in a Superman costume when, out of the blue, my camera took a walk on the wild side. Where normally the camera would simply snap open and shut when I took a pic, now the lens would remain open for a couple seconds, then begin taking pictures entirely on its own in rapid succession (I heard a series of clicks, though I only hit the button once). Or it would remain open, partially close, then

Houska Castle and the Gates To Hell?

05 January 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sometimes the activities I am involved with come together in strange ways. I manage this site and have a strong interest in the paranormal. I also have a podcast called the Magical world of G. Michael Vasey (same name as my blog) where I interview magickal people and/or discuss paranormal subjects. I also love to dowse and track earth energies. So all three activities came together last year when I visited Houska Castle again with my son and daughter. Houska is known worldwide as guarding the Gates of Hell and is associated with all manner of strange paranormal phenomena.  A reputation it has built up over the years around a story that appears to have been repeated and embellished with each telling and retelling. It now provides the owners of the

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

Ocean Drive Warning

18 December 2020 | Precognition, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In a way, I was born a loner. My parents were older, in their forties when I came along. My mom didn’t think she could have any children. There was always distance there. They really couldn’t relate to a child anymore. They never seemed to have the energy to try, either. My whole life I have had only a few friends, usually only one or two at a time. There are good reasons for that. I’m an odd person by any standard. I’m a total geek. Recently I was diagnosed with autism, but didn’t have a clue why I was so different back then. I liked spending time by myself. I liked to read a lot. I could do eye contact, parties, crowds, but none of that was fun for

The Museum Intruder

08 December 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This particular incident happened when I was really young, maybe 4 or 5, however I had a dream last night (June 4th), which was more of a flash back than anything else. My Nan looked after me and my older sister a lot during school holidays as my parents worked full time, and one of our favorite trips out was to the museum in Liverpool city centre. My favorite display was the dinosaurs and I was obsessed with the walking with dinosaurs series. One day, on a trip to the museum, I noticed that the T.Rex wasn’t alone in his display. Standing behind a plastic prehistoric palm tree was a figure. He was about the same height and shape of a fully grown man, but he had green almost scale-like

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.

The Haunted House of Shadows

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

I was about 6 years old when these experiences happened. When I was young my parents had divorced causing our family to abruptly split up and move into different homes. My dad moved my brother and I to a new apartment, owned by my father’s best friend. It was a nice apartment (half a house) that had many rooms and a lot of space for my brother and I to play in. Money was tight but my dad did what he could to provide for his kids. This house seemed normal at first, but it all seemed to quickly change. I have a few very frightening occurrences happen in this house, and they still haunt me to this day. My first experience began soon after we moved in. I had
