A Paranormal Experience In Room 217 At The Stanley Hotel

23 June 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

While staying the night in room 217 at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Parks, Colorado, my partner and I experienced three strange events we will probably remember for the rest of our lives. When you hear about the Stanley Hotel, you probably think of Stephen King’s horror novel called The Shining, or Stanley Kubrick’s horror film also called The Shining. However, in addition to a famous book and film, the hotel also has had a reputation for decades of reported ghost activity . Claims of paranormal activity have attracted visitors from around the world. In 1974, famous horror writer Stephen King stayed the night in room 217. Interestingly, his stay at the Stanley had inspired him to write his famous horror novel The Shining. It is also the room where

A 10 Foot Guardian Angel

22 June 2017 | Demons, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My final story took place around 2003, I was living in a row home with my then first wife. The house was hers and I was doing some work in the back yard. The row home was actually one building with 3 homes; ours was the middle one so we had a neighbor’s yard on each side of our own. At the back of the yards was a very narrow alley that t-boned into another alley. That alley bordered the yard to the right of ours if you were looking out our back door. I was standing in the middle of the yard facing the neighbor’s yard that bordered the second alley with the narrow alley to my left. I casually looked to my left slightly as I had a

The Healing

21 June 2017 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My second story took place about year after the first. I had broken up with a girlfriend and shortly after the breakup, I developed a kink in my neck on the left side. I stayed with me for months and months, almost close to a year. One day I couldn’t take it anymore, in submission I got down first on my knees and started praying to God to heal my neck, to take this pain, this kink in it, away. I was tired, exhausted from not being able to sleep well for so long. I prayed and prayed, and then in further submission to God, I laid down on the floor on my stomach, face down and continued to pray. I asked for nothing more than healing, and I continued

The Shadow That Absorbed Light

20 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hi, my name is Shawn, I’m a Christian, born and raised in south eastern Pennsylvania. There have been a few “interesting” events in my life that one could say touch on the unexplained or super natural. Somewhere back around 1996 – 1997 I had two separate events that shook me pretty good, then a third later in life around 2003. The first took place at work, I was a shipper for a small company; my work area was in the basement of an old building. The building was one of those old 3 story industrial brick buildings that you’d have to walk upstairs to get to the first floor. The basement was only 3 feet below ground level and that is where I spent 8 hours of my day, Monday

Scaring the Shadow Man – Are We Their Ghosts?

19 June 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My family moved into a new house in Nagoya, Japan. The first week was all chaos, as we were still unpacking boxes, rearranging furniture, etc. On the first floor, there was a long hallway that led from the front door to the kitchen. One afternoon, as I was walking down the hallway, I felt a sudden urge to turn and look behind me. I was startled to see a tall man in the shape of a featureless black shadow moving down the hallway close behind me. As he moved along the hallway, he seemed to radiate a small aura of darkness around him, casting a shadow in all directions. blotting out the light on the floor, the walls and the ceiling in a murky circle around him as he moved

A Haunted House in the United States

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

We moved into my grandma’s house when I was around fifteen years old. I loved it there. After she died we started having strange occurrences. One day while I was home alone, I swore I heard somebody laughing in the basement. I went down there and searched, but could not find anyone. I think it was the husband because I was told he used to tinker with stuff in the basement a lot before he died. Another odd thing that would happen was when we would be sitting in the living room watching television. We would always see people walking through the kitchen from the corner of our eyes. I do not know whether it was our eyes playing tricks on us or what. One night, I was sleeping in

The Party Ghost – Paranormal Experiences of a Student

15 June 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened several years ago while I was in college. I was staying with some friends who lived in an apartment complex. We stayed up until late and then we decided to get some sleep. They showed me to my room, I went to bed and I was drifting off when I felt someone come into my room. I opened my eyes and was immediately startled as there was a shadow of a woman with long black hair parted down the middle and what seemed like a long flowing gown or robe. I could not see her face, it was shadowed, but I knew it was a woman. She was standing at the foot of my bed, on the left side. She reached out with her hand and touched my

The Bedroom Haunting

13 June 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We moved into a new house when I was fourteen. I always felt uneasy being upstairs or in my bedroom and had this constant feeling of being watched. Some small things had happened but the most notorious was that my wardrobe door would randomly open in the middle of the night. It always happened when I was still awake. I would spend hours reading until late at night, before falling asleep. These wardrobes had proper door handles that latched. You would need to lift the handle straight up to get it open. Alternatively, if you were hiding inside the wardrobe you could open it by squeezing the latch from the inside until it popped open. The first few times this happened, I simply thought that the door must have been

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 Hatman

07 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One night, when I was about 13 or 14, I was lying in bed in that half-asleep state before you really doze off. I was staring at my wall that faced the front of my house and it was very dark. Suddenly, I saw a figure walk through my wall towards me. I could tell my his shape that he was a man, but I saw no other distinguishable features other than it seemed as if he was wearing a long cloak and a flat rimmed hat. I was kind of frozen as I watched him move closer. He came right next to me, bent down and kissed the top of my head and it felt like ice had touched me. That snapped me out of my stupor and I

The Resentful Spirit Who Haunted My Childhood

06 June 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story took place during my childhood in the 1970’s. We lived in Manchester, UK in a council property in a, now, derelict part of the city. Back then the houses we considered old and were quite rundown. That house always had a strange feeling for me, particularly the cupboard under the stairs. I never felt comfortable leaving the living room unless I was with one of my parents. I always got a feeling of real dread anytime I approached that point of the hall and used to run full out of the living room to the stairs and run all the way up them, then rush down them. I never ever saw anything but the feeling was sheer terror and horror. One night my dad had taken me up

Cornelius Piros is a young man from Malaysia that I met in Nagoya through mutual friends.

After meeting him at a series of parties and social events, he came to be a good friend with my wife and I, coming to our home in Nagoya many times for dinner parties, BBQs, and so on.

The Haunted Student Complex

02 June 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I went to college my parents carefully chose an apartment for me. They were worried I would spend more time partying, than studying. The apartment my parents rented for me was old, and I shared it with three other students. It was actually very nice and I was excited to move in. I had no idea that I would come face-to-face with the paranormal. Once I moved in, some strange things started happening. It started with the TV in the living room. We were sitting on the couch, watching TV. The remote was sitting under the table that the TV was on, upside down. The back was off the remote, so we could see that there were no batteries in it. The sound on the TV was low so

The Dog and the Shadow

01 June 2017 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was dogsitting for a friend in Queens one evening. I had the TV on, popcorn in hand, and the dog, a muscly (but very sweet) pit bull snoozing next to me. The front door was in view in this very small apartment on the third floor, and all doors and windows were locked. Suddenly, the pup perked up and deeply growled. She jumped up and ran around the corner into the kitchen. I follow her. Standing in the middle of the kitchen is a shadow person. I could barely see the counter behind it, and it looked vaguely whispy around the edges. Roughly six-feet-tall. Just standing there, looking at the dog. The dog stops, hackles raised, growling at the thing and barking. I gasp, the thing turns to look

Grandad’s Practical Joke

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

I was 15 and I was at a birthday sleepover and we were all in the living room. At around 11pm everybody went to sleep but me. I was lying on the couch watching TV and eating. It was 2 am and everybody is still sleeping. There is a half wall that separates the living room from the other rooms and all of a sudden, I can hear somebody walking from the other side of the wall and I thought it was the mom or dad, but I remembered that they weren’t home. I was getting very nervous. I kept my eyes on the TV but I could still see out of the corner of my eye and all of a sudden I see a head peeking from behind the
