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

Harold and the Cat

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

As long as I can remember I have had an interest in the paranormal and supernatural and have had many experiences through my life. The house I lived in as a child in Bristol, England harboured both friendly and not so friendly entities and it is the experiences with both of these I want to share with you. I cannot remember when the strange occurrences started but I think it may have had something to do with the use of a ouija board in the house. It was used at Christmas when my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins were all in the house. I was not present in the room where the board was used but saw it laid out before the session began. I don’t know what happened but

On August 6th, 1980 my grandparents were traveling from Odessa, Texas to Mexico due to a family emergency. They took off at around 11pm on the night of the 5th with their two kids, which is my dad and my aunt. My grandpa along with my grandmas uncle and brother were riding in the front seat with my grandma and the kids in the back. Between 2:30 – 3:00am and South of Marfa, Texas is when they saw something strange by the Chinati Peak mountains. They saw what seemed to be a big fire on the ground against a mountain. My grandma asked if it could be illegals trying to stay warm, her uncle said “I don’t think so, it would catch the attention of law enforcement and eventually get

11 November 2020 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

At 32 years of age, I decided to go back to college and get a degree. I spent the next four years at CSULB figuring out what I wanted to be and the following two becoming a history teacher (1991-97). I worked my way through college and managed to either have a full-time job or a couple of part-time jobs all six years, well, except for that last semester. My classes during that last semester were all over the place; one-morning class, a couple in the afternoon, and two at night. I just couldn’t find a job that would accommodate that schedule. By the end of the semester, I was broke, seriously broke. I had gone through what little savings I had, my one credit card, and the money friends

The Pipe Smoker

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

Just completed a sail from USA to Scotland. I visited many harbors and inlets around this gorgeous country. I was actually able to meet ancestors of my family clan “Fraser”. I have a strong family background in sailing. which basically began in Scotland and England. One night, I had anchored off a small community named Portree. A beautiful seaport. I spent three nights on the hook and went in town with my dingy. I spent time walking the entire town taking in all the history and folklore. Incredible history and stories told by the locals. I have a 40 foot wooden Ketch, which was built in the USA around the early 1900″s and has thousands of miles of sea time on her hull. I woke up on the third morning

The Babysitters

03 November 2020 | Your True Encounters

When we were kids up through our middle teens, my best friend Zeke and I were inseparable. We went to school together, came home together and spent pretty much every day together. We met because our parents were friends and having two boys of the same age, us spending time together was pretty much a given. Overnights, joining each other on vacations, we did everything together. Zeke would pick up a little extra money by doing babysitting jobs for other friends of his parents and on occasion, I was allowed to come with him. It was usually a good time, we played with the kids, usually infants to toddlers in age. We would play games, watch movies, tell or read stories and when they went to bed, we would just

The Snarling in the Walls

02 November 2020 | Your True Encounters

Around age 10, after my parents got divorced. I moved to a small town of about 1800 people. I lived in a large farm-style house with my aunt and uncle. My mother. My little sister, whose two years younger than me and my little brother who is 6 years younger than me. Strange things often happened while we lived here. Such as me seeing a translucent man run from one end of the hallway into the bathroom and out of existence while walking up the stairs. I was so scared that I fell down the stairs and would dread having to use the bathroom for months after. I then picked my uncle’s dad out of a family reunion photo, never having seen him before. As the man I saw that

The Hefty Price

30 October 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 1944 my family moved into an apartment that no one wanted. The lure of cheap rent was not enough of a draw for even the most desperate. We were more than desperate, we were a family living on the margin. The margin of opportunity, money and sanity. We were the working poor, with a questionable pedigree. Housing had always been an issue, because of finances… and other matters of social delicacy. Our last chance was waiting, we had been disappointed before . My parents were shown dismal cold water flats fit for vermin, in industrial slums. Once property owners or Real Estate agents saw the dark skinned man with the blonde wife, suddenly there were no vacancies. To get rooms above a store on the avenue would take a

Military Ghost Story

29 October 2020 | Your True Encounters

My name is Mike. I’m a US Army veteran and this is a true story of events which occurred during my time stationed in Hawaii. I am writing it to the best of my memory of the occurrences. The exact address and community name have been omitted as it is not my intention to negatively impact the housing community where these events took place. I will start with how I arrived there to begin with. The story begins in late 2011. I had just completed basic training at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina and was living at Fort Eustis, Virginia. My wife Nicole lived in apartment off base while I stayed on base during the week, finishing up my military job training at the Army Aviation Logistics School on base. I

Mysterious Mist & Strange Anomalies Appear in Parade Pics

27 October 2020 | 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

The Entity and a Decade of Poison

26 October 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

April 2010, I find myself thoroughly injected in yet another hopeless, mundane, uneventful day in deep east Texas. Twenty-two years old with more life experience than most could dream at that age, though little evidence existed to support that claim other than the slide reel of countless memories ever rotating in my mind. At this point, I am approaching my 4th wedding anniversary however it wouldn’t be smiles as she was residing for a prolonged stay out of state, I’m staying with a friend and his wife attempting to find some financial stability. They were kind enough to let me work out what I had needed and provided me a room to make my own out of an old art studio in the rear of the house. The couple that
