Living In A Haunted Mill

05 September 2018 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

10 years ago my wife and I bought an old Mill that was built in 1876. It’s situated right on the River Gade in Hertfordshire and while this building is indeed old there has been a Mill of some sort on this site as evidenced in the Domesday book in 1086. The Mill had been abandoned for some time but it is a sturdy building with brick walls that are 2’ thick and it only required work to the roof in order to protect it from the elements before we could begin making it into a home. Once the roof repair was completed I set about the extensive internal remodelling myself. The open space of the interior was cleared of junk but during the structural work on the interior I

Poltergeist – The Disappearing Cross by Keith Linder

09 April 2018 | Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

A month before this movie came out, my cousin flew down from Dallas TX and stayed with me and my girlfriend up near Seattle, WA, in a small town called Bothell. My cousin had been aware of our ghost sort of speak – meaning she knew just enough to still want to come. To be safe, she bought a cross with her, a gift for me and my girlfriend. Hopefully, this cross will protect all of us. Written on it were the Chapters Joshua 1:9, Phil 4:13, Psalm 28:7 and Matthew 19:26; each verse spoke about maintaining one’s strength, one’s faith during troubling times. My girlfriend and I had been having strong poltergeist-like activity so reading something was extremely helpful. When my cousin arrived she handed me cross; we prayed

The Phoenix Poltergeist

30 December 2017 | Ghosts in the news, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A word scrawled on the bathroom wall in Hebrew – translated into English it says DANGER! That was the beginning of a truly paranormal Christmas for a family in Phoenix, AZ this year. Next, things began to move around in the kitchen and the family awoke to find all of the cupboards and drawers open. Then both bathrooms flooded. “For the past few days our house that my grandfather, aunt, two cousins and myself have been living in has been ‘acting up,’ ” Rudy Calderon wrote on his Facebook on Christmas Eve. “We have been hearing noises, objects appear out of nowhere, they move around and yesterday all of our kitchen cabinets were left open. All doors were locked so no one could have gotten in and we tried to

The Scottish Poltergeist

09 August 2017 | Ghosts in the news, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Another poltergeist occurrence that was widely discussed in the press was really very bizarre. It took place in the Rutherglen, Scotland, home of Mrs. Shreenan who lived there with her son and, from a media perspective anyway, began with an amazing tale of a flying Chihuahua dog. The police were called to disturbances at the home where they found clothes flying across a room and the family’s pet dog sitting on top of a large hedge. The police were to say the least troubled by what they found and called in a Priest. Police attending the incident were described as having 20-year’s experience, but not knowing quite what to do under the circumstances. Lights were going off and on, the lampshades on the lights were upside down and the oven

The Poltergeist Who Won’t Leave Us… Ever

30 June 2017 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

During the summer of 2010, five of my children were playing outside one afternoon, leaving my second eldest son indoors with me, but he was upstairs. He came downstairs and was visibly shaken and scared, I asked him… “What’s wrong?” He said while he was sat upstairs he had heard a woman say something to him very close to his ear but he couldn’t make out what the female voice said. It was all very strange. A few months later my friend came around one night she had a few glasses of wine while I had a soft drink, we had a good laugh and catch up she went home at about 11-30pm, so I retired to bed. Early that morning I was woken up abruptly by what sounded like

Scratch One, Scratch Two, Scratch Three… Is This A Demon?

08 June 2017 | Demons, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have lived in my current house for several years. I spend much of the day out as I work, but these events have been taking place in the evening. I haven’t been able to shed any light on them but wanted to share them with you to see if anyone had any feedback. I came home from work a few months ago, and after dinner I fell asleep. When I woke up it was about eleven in the evening. I began walking to my room, which is located at the end of the hall and as I walked, I felt a stinging sensation on my left arm. I thought something much have scratched me, but when I checked the scratch after entering my room I couldn’t find any explanation

The Evil Drug Den That Became My Home

26 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I always felt there was something wrong with my first apartment from the moment I stepped through the front door. It wasn’t that it was rundown, or derelict. It was actually a really nice apartment, painted brightly and was actually very conveniently near a shopping mall. I moved into the house in May 1985. At first trivial things would happen. I had a big poster of Eddie Murphy fall of the wall in my bedroom several times. I heard some creaks and had a few unimportant things go missing around the house. One of the strangest incidents took place in the bedroom. I would play music at night after I’d finished school. At least once a week my boombox would eat my tapes. I tried replacing the boombox, I would

Right Said Fred

18 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

Today, I pulled someone’s post from Reddit as it is really quite a good story. I am researching poltergeist stories for the next Kindle short and this one shows that sometimes, they do have a sense of humor. This also reminds me of an incident I experienced and wrote about in one of the MyHaunted Life books…. I experienced any number of bizarre happenings when I was in college. One was the poltergeist in my best friend’s apartment. Strange stuff had started happening there early in the spring semester of my second year. Doors would lock by themselves. Strange scraping and banging sounds came from the walls. A sense of presence and being watched settled over things, objects would disappear and be found elsewhere. Even my friend’s skeptic roommate started

Hotel Poltergeist

17 May 2017 | Haunted locations, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

Imagine checking into your hotel room only to experience poltergeist activity? No? Well, the Holiday Inn Express in Leeds City Center apparently has poltergeist – at least according to this Tripadvisor reviewer.. This hotel is great value for money and is ideally situated in the centre of Leeds and no more than a 20 min walk to most places that you will want to visit. The bar area is fine and the breakfast cooked and the basic fayre that you would expect. The rooms are of ample size and the bed was very comfortable. Service from the hotel team was great throughout. Two things let it down for us and hence not five stars: – There were only decaf coffee sachets in the room and after a heavy night out,

Haunting at 824 Sweetbriar

05 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This all started back in the summer of 1965. It was a hot August day. My oldest brother and I were home and were about to make some lunch. We started making lunch and about 20 minutes pass before we heard a knock on the front door. My brother said, “Go see who that is.” So I go and open the door – but no one was there. I closed it and walked back telling him no one was there. So he just said, “OK“, and he continued to make sandwiches while I made the soup. Tomato soup to be exact. Some time went by when again, we heard a knock at the front door. Again, he asked me to go see who it was. So, I go to see

Am I Haunted?

01 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My story begins when I was eight years old and my mother was cleaning the back half of the house. As she was coming to the front, I heard her tell my brother to shut the door if he was going to use the restroom and then she walked on like nothing happened. She reached the front room and stopped dead in her tracks and said to my brother who was there with me “How did you get out here so fast.” I asked “Who were you talking to mom?” and she said “I was talking to your brother.” I now think that my mother saw my brothers’ doppleganger. When I was twelve, we moved to a new house. The first night there, we had to call the police department

The Phantom Knocker

27 April 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Since February I have been hearing knocks all around my house. It started one night at around 3am. I was having a tough time falling asleep so I went downstairs to watch TV. I’m sitting on the couch watching infomercials, when I heard a male voice call me from my room. I go to my room and asked my husband what he needed but he was fast asleep. A few weeks later, I heard knocks under the house, but I dismissed it as neighborhood cats under the house. That happens all the time. I went to bed and thought nothing of it until I heard three really loud bangs on my front door at around 3am in the morning. I went to get a bat and see who was at

The Poltergeist That Likes to Start Fires

22 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Nedamov u Dubé is a small village in the Czech republic known mostly as a place school kids go to camp in the summer. However, over the last few years, it has become famous for an occurrence of a poltergeist with a difference – this poltergeist is an arsonist. It all seems to have started when a house burned down a couple of years ago in the village. The firefighters could establish no cause for the mysterious fire that gutted the building. Things got stranger however when rebuilding began. Over the course of 6 days, the fire fighters were called out to no fewer than 45 fires at the property. According to the construction workers and the local fire fighters, things would simply spontaneously combust including articles of clothing, wooden

Beware Room 10, It’s Haunted!

06 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

TripAdvisor.com is a site to look for things to do and places to stay. The reviews can often be fun to read and sometimes, they can be very, very creepy too…..Here are some reviews of the Overland Hotel & Saloon in Nevada. It seems Room 10 may have a problem! I stayed in the room across from room 10. I could hear heavy breathing coming from the hallway so I opened the door to realize nobody was there – not a single soul in the corridor. I went to room 10 and because it was empty I thought why not? So I opened the door with anticipation. And I walked through the room. I felt a strange presence as I walked through to the bedroom. As if somebody was watching

The Christmas Demon

24 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was told this story when I was young by my Aunts, Mother and Grandmother. My grandmother had twenty four kids and the women in my family have always been sensitive to other worldly things My grandmother was in her youth and making Christmas dinner for everyone when as she said that she felt as though she was being watched in her kitchen.
