The Falling Gnome

23 May 2017 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was only about seven when this happened but it still gives me the creeps just thinking about it. When I was seven my mother had a garden gnome in the garden out by the front side of the house. She called it Sylvester for some odd reason. When I was younger, before I had started school that garden gnome had been my only friend. The day I started school and came home the gnome wasn’t in the garden anymore . I looked and looked for it until finally I gave up and went inside . After I went inside I heard a loud thump like something had fallen from the roof and landed on the ground in front of my bedroom window. At first I thought it was just

The Girl in the Chair

22 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I can assure you, this story is 100% true. This took place during March during spring break. If you dislike any paranormal things, I suggest you don’t continue! My name is Alexa. I’m a young teenager with average grades and an average life. It happened when I was in the middle of 6th grade. During Spring Break, I was invited to stay at my friends house for two nights. It was the day I was heading to her house. This was the first time I that I had visited her dads house and only ever been to her mothers place before. After a long drive, I slipped off my headphones that were blaring some Ke$ha song. I got out of the car with a wide grin and scurried eagerly to meet

The Old Arkansas House

19 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was 3 years old when we moved into my childhood home. Prior to my family moving there, an old lady lived in that house. Before that it was owned by the people who ran one of the local churches. That old church was destroyed by a fire. Also, surrounding the house are several graveyards. One directly across the road and another on the other side of our large driveway. The one that really creeped me out was the private overgrown one that was connected to our backyard by a small wooded area. The stones were very old, crumbling and some knocked over I experienced the most upstairs in my bedroom and my parents room. When I was about four my older sister moved into her own room. I remember

The Ghost of a Man Possessed

16 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My mother, father, and I were visiting my grandparents in Tennessee. At the time, two of my uncles and one of my aunts were living with my grandparents, as the house belonged to one of my uncles. I adored visiting my grandmother and was very fond of her. Two weeks into our annual visit I saw an old man standing in the doorway smiling at me. To this very day, I can remember every detail about him. He was a little bald and his skin was gray, and had a beige shirt on with almost black pants. I remember turning around to continue playing with my dolls and turning back at least two or three times and seeing the man still there, pulling faces at me. I laughed as I

Friendly Ghosts From The Civil War Era

15 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was eleven, my family moved to a larger home that was built just before the Civil War. It was in a small Missouri town. At school the kids and teachers would say how the house was haunted and ask how we could stand living in it. We would often hear the footsteps on the stairs, and the sound of humming. My mom said that she came into the kitchen one morning and caught a glimpse of a very large lady who was dressed like a housekeeper. She was cleaning the floor and humming. My dad was told that there had been slaves on the property and had found the remnants of slave houses. I had had a bicycle wreck and had a concussion. My mom was sitting up

Ouija Board Terror

12 May 2017 | Haunted items, ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I live in West Virginia. This is where my experience took place. I am now over fifty years old, but I was just over ten when this happened. My mother bought me a Ouija board thinking it was a game. One night while my dad was at work, we got out the board, lit a candle and put it in the middle of the table. We placed our fingers lightly on the planchette. Mom asked if there was anyone there that wanted to speak to us. I was giggling. She asked again. The planchette then moved to YES. I told mom she was moving it and she said she was not. My mother asked, “Who are you?” The planchette then went to each letter and spelled Alberts. We did not

A Haunted Classroom?

11 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened in 1966 when I was ten. It isn’t very dramatic, but it was quite scary enough for me. I was at a convent boarding school in the United Kingdom. The school was shaped like a Z with the fourth-year classroom at the bottom right at ground level with the third-year classroom between it and the rest of the school. A long corridor ran from the fourth-year classroom and past the third. It had a window at the top, but above my height so I couldn’t actually see into the classroom. At weekends the children could watch television after dinner and before bed. Toward the end of dinner, two girls would be sent to the third-year classroom to put chairs out, as this was where the only television set

The Woodworking Spirit

10 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In all the time I have done paranormal investigation I have experienced some of the strangest things. Some not so scary and some would make the hair on my neck stand up. Quite a few stories I can tell you would totally freak you out, but one story in particular, well, let’s just say would leave you wondering. We had lived in an apartment for about 3 years and strange things would occur. Shadows moving in and out of rooms. Things going missing and turning up somewhere totally different. In this apartment there was a basement. I wanted to put a little workshop down there as I worked with wood for a long time and wanted to have a wood shop. Now I know some of you think basements are

My Doppelganger?

09 May 2017 | Living Ghosts, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Just last week, I was on Reddit asking people for Poltergeist experiences and came across this strange story. To me this is a classic, doppelganger or bilocation just like those I discuss in my last book Ghosts of the Living….. This happened a few hours ago, still scared to go downstairs. I’ll preface this by saying I have been hearing faint voices and seeing things out of the corner of my eye, although I kind of assumed this was from lack of sleep (I’m a student with a load of homework, I can’t afford the luxury of sleep…). Nothing else has happened in our house. My brother (10, we’ll call him Mark) and I were home alone for a few hours late at night. Basically, our house has two down

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

The White Skeletal Entity

04 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was about six years old and my parents had just moved us into a new house. From the first visit I never felt comfortable in that house and still, 15 years later I hate being there alone. The first couple of months after moving in we had a few incidents, keys would go missing, electricity would cut, creeks, and bangs on the walls but my parents reassured me that it was just because it was a new house and we weren’t used to its personality yet. One night I was woken by a feeling of being really cold. I sat up and opened my eyes, and there was a figure standing in my doorway. The only way I can describe it is that it was like death, but all

The Moving Cross Touched By A Spirit

03 May 2017 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was unemployed several years ago and spent much of my time watching TV. I had never had anything paranormal happen to me before. This took place at around 4 to 5 in the afternoon. I wasn’t alone as my mother was just a few feet away from me on the couch. Everything was quite normal until I noticed a cross which has been hanging just above the TV for years started to move, slowly at first… then more violently. It was like someone has pushed it hard or like it had been jolted. This cross is heavy. There is no possibility of wind moving it or anything. It takes some force to make the thing move. As soon as I saw this cross move, I quickly turned to my

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

A Sinister Black Eyed Man in the Backyard

28 April 2017 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was June 2016, Roseville California, 3pm. I began to make my way to my ex-sister-in-laws house. Four of my nieces stay with her and her new husband. I knocked on the door to smiling faces and a barking dog. This dog wouldn’t stop barking and stayed close to the two littlest girls, 3 and 4 years old. Their names, Devin and Danni, golden hair and blue eyes. Their mother, Lindsey was finishing dinner before heading out to get the other two older girls, Ashlynn and Harley, 10 years old and 15 years old. Lindsey asked me to watch the two little ones while she ran to get the other girls. I sat on the couch with Danni and Devin, but then Devin ran to the back sliding door and

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
