Mysterious Happenings at Stanley Hotel

31 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In late July 2019, I stayed overnight in the Stanley hotel with my parents, niece, and nephew. They stayed in Room 330, while I was in a different room on the 2nd Floor, nowhere near their room. I had been to the hotel before, but never toured or stayed before. The last time I went, I trekked down the stairs near the front desk. This led to a sort of underground tunnel. In this tunnel, my brother-in-law and I came across a small lounge/bar. I spoke with a few employees there for just a few minutes. Right away, I felt something uneasy in the air, and these employees confirmed my feelings. There were rapid temperatures changes, and feelings that someone else was right next to me, and just generally a

Shadow People

30 January 2020 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Okay, so I know that there is a shadow man but has anyone experienced shadow people? This probably sounds super weird and I think it all started around my 13th birthday. I just got out of a really bad friend group and noticed these strange “beings”. I call them “the Beings” because I can’t tell if they’re man or monster. Well, it was maybe a week after my 13 and I’d see a shadow that’s not mine when I’m in a room by myself. This was two years ago. Skip ahead two years and everything’s sooo much worse! I constantly feel as if I’m watched and I’m on edge. So much so that any loud, sudden noise and I’m a complete wreck. I don’t know if women are more prone

A Night at my Cousin’s House…

29 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was late August 2008. My mom decided we would go over to my cousins house in California for the weekend. My mom’s sister had 2 other daughters – one was older than me and her name was Meena and the other younger daughter who was almost my age, which was 12 at the time called Tameena. We all were into ghosts and creepy things and we all had the feeling that the house was haunted. Things would move on their own, toys would come on randomly at night for no reason, stuff would go missing and then be found somewhere else, typical ghost stuff. One night, we decided it would be a good idea to try and maybe summon the spirit or at least try to get in contact

The Forest Demon

28 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was 15 and I remember it was around the beginning of October. I had just had dinner and decided to go wonder around outside since we lived in a subdivision that borders cornfield and forest there was always a lot to do. I wondered into a mowed field hoping to see a buck since they often hung out there in the afternoons eating leftovers from the harvest. My brother and I always tried to outdo each other by finding a buck with the most points on his antlers. So before I knew it, I had wondered out pretty far and I was surprised that I hadn’t seen a single deer or rabbit anywhere which was strange, so I decided to head back. As I turned around there was something

Ghostly Orbs

27 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

Last year, I travelled to see my friends Ali and Ronnie. As I was to spend the night, I had to clear the junk piled up on the couch and floor. They are kind of hoarders. Anyway I really got into the cleaning. I relocated a bunch of stuff to the rear of the room and in doing so, I found two computer monitors which I placed on top of two file cabinets, one directly facing me. I then vacuumed the red carpet really good, leaving nothing on the carpet. The next morning I woke up and noticed two walnuts on the carpet. I am positive that no one had been in the room. As I was sitting there thinking about the walnuts, I looked up at the computer monitor

The Voice from the House…

24 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hello, my name is Lesha and I live in a town in North Carolina where I’ve been all my life. The story I’m sharing is something that happened to me while visiting my grandmother house. One day on a warm spring day my two daughters and I went to see my grandma. I rang The doorbell and as I’m waiting for her to answer, I hear her make a sound she makes to let you know she is coming. Well, we’re waiting for her to come open the door, but she never did. I figured she must be using the restroom as to why she hasn’t made it to the door. So I tell My daughters we will just go to the gym, the gym is right across the street

The Green Stone

18 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I came across this intriguing story this afternoon and thought I would post it here. Sorry about the book plug at then end (not my book!)… In 1979 a team of researchers followed a series of clues left in an early seventeenth-century painting to discover a mysterious gemstone said to have belong to Mary Queen of Scots. When it was taken to an old Victorian house in the heart of England all hell broke loose. Perhaps the most remarkable true account of historical mystery and the paranormal ever told.

My encounter with the Hatman

17 January 2020 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I grew up in an old country house, built near the start of the 1900s in SouthWestern Ontario. The house was out of the city limits, down a dirt road with no street lights and the closest neighbors were no less than 200 yards away from our property line. We had a large yard that was well populated with large old-growth pine trees, cedars, maple, oaks and willows. The inside of our house was rather basic, with a kitchen, bathroom, living room and our patents bedroom on the main floor, while my siblings and I had our rooms on the upstairs floor. The staircase was a typical old-school wooden staircase, complete with creaks and groans as you made your way up each step. The staircase had three initial stairs before

The Ghosts of Miners Scared Me!

13 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So this is a bit of a story. But while I was dating my fiancé, I would spend my weekends at his ranch. His ranch was 50 miles out of town plus a few miles of forest road just to get to the front gate. And, it was located right on top of a very old failed silver mine from the late 1800-1910. The remains of the miner kitchen gave us that timeframe because of how the tins were sealed. Also, we had maps of where things where laid out. Plus the mine ruins. So, my one full summer there helping the ranch I spent weekends there, and helped with organizing the farmhands and stuff. And they kept talking about orbs in specific areas of the ranch. I understood some

Dragged from my Bed…

10 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was 5, we lived in a mobile home. The hall wasn’t long but, of course, for a child it was. My mom wouldn’t let us watch scary movies so what happened wasn’t triggered by that. So, I went to sleep but this night but there was a different feeling in my room. It felt scared for some reason. I would see dark shadows on my walls but I would just put the covers over my head. Suddenly, my covers were pulled off of my bed and I was afraid to open my eyes as I was being dragged out of my bed down the hall. I tried to scream and I couldn’t. When I opened my eyes there was a dark figure pulling at me. My Dad must

The Ghostly Inmate

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

I was listening to some of your first responder stories (weird Darkness) today and it reminded me of something that happened when I was a deputy sheriff. I worked corrections 9am to 9pm so I worked day and night shift. One night I was leaving and stopped to talk to my LT. The jail was locked down and the night shift officers were starting to do their checks. We were talking over the day when he looked on the monitor and saw an inmate in one of the pods sitting at a table watching TV. I checked and saw the inmate myself. The pod was locked down and the lights were out but I could see this guy illuminated by the glow of the television. The lieutenant called for two

The Nocturnal Visitor

07 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 2017 and 2018, my friend and I brought our horses to ride the Gettysburg battle grounds. We both hoped to have a ghostly experience, but were blown away by the bright sunlit day time ghost figures I captured over my shoulder with my cell phone in 2017. After we returned to her home, she would talk about hearing someone walks around with boots on when she was alone. In 2018, I spent the night before our trip at her house. At some point in the night I was awakened by what felt like 2 hands sneakily pull my sheet down from the foot of the bed. My mind was awake, but sleep paralysis kept me from speaking or moving. I tried desperately to say “no” or “stop” but couldn’t.

The Shadow in the Doorway

01 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

When I was younger, whenever I was sick or feeling sad I would always see this tall dark figure standing in a doorway near me. It always took up a good part of the doorway and I later associated the smell of vodka to it. Now we lived in north Missouri, so I thought it was just an old coal miner that died close to the property we had. So I found it weird when it followed me to Georgia to do my basic training. Upon getting home and seeing family I told my Grandpa, we’ll call him Tom, about it and he told me the story of the apparition. He told me that he saw the same apparition the day his dad, my great-grandpa, died at work. He suffered

The Unseen Dishwasher

30 December 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

For 30 years I was a 911 dispatcher. You know the person who answers the phone when you call 911 and yell and scream at to make someone get there faster.. even though emergency personnel are driving as fast as they can? The building that I worked in the past 26 years was haunted by who/what we don’t know, but almost everybody that has worked there has had some type of experience. I mainly worked the graveyard shift, aptly named if you ask me. I enjoyed it because of 1. for the variety of calls you got and 2. I didn’t have to deal with the brass. So onto my story. I was working the graveyard shift a couple of years ago. The dispatch center had 6 cubicles where you

They are Real!

19 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

What I’m about to tell you occurred when I was just five years old; I’m 53 now, but this event sticks in my head like it just happened yesterday. All I can say is, shadow people are real. My mother and I had flown from the U.S to England to visit family; this was my first time meeting my Aunt and her husband and we would staying at their house for about two weeks. Aunt Lily and Uncle Vic had never had children, but when I arrived, they had a fully loaded toy chest waiting for me with all sorts of goodies. The two items I immediately clocked on to were a metal Bat-mobile and a Batman flashlight that would supposedly shine the “bat-signal” on to a wall by way
