Sleep Paralysis

02 September 2019 | Old hag, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My eldest daughter, who’s now 21 and doing fine, was having almost nightly episodes of sleep paralysis when she was 15. Before it started she’d been having a hard time at school, cutting classes and getting failing grades. The paralysis started after she decided to stop cutting class and take her school work more seriously. I had no idea it was happening until one day she asked me if it was normal to feel some one climb on your chest until you can’t move or breathe. I had her look up sleep paralysis or old hag and she told me it sounded like what she’d been experiencing except she hadn’t seen anyone because when it happened she was afraid to open her eyes. I told her until I could think

Why I don’t watch Ghost Stories on the Internet Anymore

22 August 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve been debating on whether I should share this story or not, but I feel that what I experienced it important to share for anyone who has some interest in the paranormal. First off, let me give you some info. I’m 32 years old, happily married and the owner of three cats. I’m also a believer in God and Jesus and attend my church regularly. I know what you’re thinking, “ugh, another one of these people. why is he shoving his belief down our throats?” before you skip this part, I just ask that you listen, this part is important for later. For most of my life I had a huge interest in the paranormal. While in college, I took many ghost walks and even participated in a few ghost

Velhartice Cemetery

21 August 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The cemetery at Velhartice in the Czech Republic is supposedly a very, very scary place. Firstly, on the side wall of the small chapel in the cemetery are dark spots that seem to resemble faces. Even if painted or freshly plastered these spots soon reappear again. This is said to be as a result of an original small wooden chapel being burned down by robbers with some locals trapped inside it. There is also a story made famous in a well-known Czech poem about a local girl whose fiancé returns from the war. Being very happy to see him, she at first isn’t suspicious about his request to marry in the middle of the night. Off they go to get married at midnight and the girl becomes increasingly suspicious of

Ghost bride haunting the D1 motorway near Brno

20 August 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The tale of an unhappy female ghost causing havoc for motorists on the highway is almost universal. There is one in the Czech Republic, but she is not the victim of a recent car crash like so many of the others. She was the bride at a 16th century wedding that ended in a massacre. The place has been called Nine Crosses (Devět křížů) for as long as anyone can remember, and tall wooden crosses still stand by the side of the turnoff where the nine victims were buried. The site is a protected cultural monument. The spot is just off the D1 highway from Prague to Brno, the busiest road in the country. For years, tabloids have been pointing out that the fatal accident rate near exit 168 by the

What Got Me Interested in the Paranormal

16 August 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was young my family had moved to West Virginia. My parents had just bought a house and we moved in the Summer of 1989. Things were pretty normal from the start. I met my neighbor who would become my best friend, and I was just your normal kid. At the time we had an Atari, so I played that like crazy, you know once a gamer always a gamer. But, I am getting off topic. My parents had setup my room diagonally from their room. My mother wanted to be able to look across the hallway into my room to make sure I didn’t roll out of my bed. This is where things start getting interesting… One night I was asleep and my mother felt the urge to

Hotel Room Hell

15 August 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was 15 I traveled to Europe with my family. We stayed in Ettal, Germany in a small inn for a few nights. My parents had a double [bed] on the second floor, my sisters had the double bedroom next to theirs, and I was lucky enough to have a single room all to myself at the far end of the hall. When we went to check in to our rooms, as soon as I entered the hallway our rooms were in, I remember almost feeling as though I walked into a ‘wall’ of… bad energy? I just felt so unnerved and uneasy in that hallway, but I passed it off as an overactive imagination. I slept the first night without any issues other than waking up a few

Knocking in the Night

14 August 2019 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

As you all know, I wrote a couple of books about the Black eyed Kids. If you aren’t familiar with them, just dig a little into this site for encounters with them. Occasionally, I think about the BEK, especially sometimes at night when I am alone and it is very late….. What has been a tad worrying though is on a few occasions, I have been woken up by sharp rapping on my front door. I’ll be honest and say my heart beat a little faster and I determined not to answer. Gradually falling back asleep all the while imagining the BEK outside. Whether I am dreaming the knocks or whether they are real, I am not too sure but…. it is a bit scary to say the least. What

The Haunted Residence

13 August 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in my college days, my friend and I moved into a newly renovated row of back to back houses in Glasgow, Scotland. The houses had sat as derelict empty shells for many years before being acquired by the University and renovated. When we moved in everything was new as the renovation had been completed just weeks prior. The smell of fresh paint was everywhere. The flat comprised of two study bedrooms, small bathroom and kitchen. It was nothing much but we were excited as it was far better than any other residences on campus. I chose the larger room – not because I needed the space but because the other room felt a bit gloomy to me. We duly moved in and term began. There were odd nights when

Tom’s Dentures?

12 August 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was 8 we moved into a new house in a new state. School was 2 months away and with no friends I spent that summer exploring my new, huge, yard that had one very flat section half the size of a football field and an enormous old tree that I was eyeing for climbing. One day early on I found a pair of dentures in the dirt under the tree. I was 8 so they went in my pocket. That’s when The Old Man, we shall call him TOM, started waving at me. I would see TOM in the yard walking around. He always wore a Hawaiian button down that was a little faded and outdoor sandals with shorts. He had gray hair, glasses, and a close mouthed

The Creeper in the Woods

08 August 2019 | Creepy places, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was 2003, I was in 8th grade, so about 13-years old. My family was fairly poor and my dad had a hard time keeping a stable job so, we moved around a lot in my childhood. We had just moved from Mississippi to North Carolina and found a dated A-frame house nestled quaintly on the side of a mountain with a creek at the bottom of the hill. The house was surprisingly cheap, probably because it was previously a vacation rental that wasn’t getting much business by the looks of it. The house had an odd vibe to say the least. I had explored the woods by my house several times that summer, even becoming lost at one point, but after a couple of hours of following the creek,

The Ghost of my Grandfather

26 July 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I will tell you a mysterious story, which I experienced when my grandfather died. When I was 14-years old, my dear grandfather passed away because of cancer. I was very sad and depressed, because I liked him very much. He really loved us kids. He was always kind and funny. My family went to Kanazawa where he lived to attend his funeral and we stayed at my grandparents’ house a couple of days. The day before the funeral, I saw my grandfather’s body. He was lying down on a futon, like he was sleeping quietly without breathing. I clearly remember that his face was peaceful but very white. I burst into tears because I could never talk to him again. After coming back to the house, I took a nap

The 9 Type of Hauntings

25 July 2019 | Ghost hunting, What Is a Ghost? and other definitions, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

According to Paul Dale Roberts, there are 9 types of haunting. Do you agree? 1. INTELLIGENT: An intelligent haunting is when the experiencer or the investigator is able to have interaction with the entity. When communicating with the entity, you receive intelligent answers back to your questions. You ask the entity to knock on the table and it does exactly that. This is an intelligent response and you can deem the entity as being “intelligent”. During one of my investigations, I asked the entity to kiss the investigator and with 3 cameras manned by 3 investigators we were able to capture an orb hovering on the lips of the investigator. When that same investigator sat down, we asked the entity to sit on his lap and with 3 cameras captured

The House Next Door – 1969 Gloster

24 July 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

You all know that one house on the street that just isn’t completely right. The one that looks normal but just.. isn’t. The one that causes chills to run down your spine when you pass it. The one that you avoid but at the same time are so intrigued by; the one that probably holds more secrets than you could ever imagine. When I was younger, that particular house was right next door to my Granny’s house. I used to stare at it for hours, admiring the structure, however if I looked at it for too long, I would begin to notice too much. I would notice the contorted figures staring back at me from the windows. The way the color is actually quite sickening, and how the windows were

Haunted Hall of Fame?

23 July 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

As unbelievable as this sounds, I assure you it is 100% true. Back in 2004 we had been renting space for our theater company. The building the space occupied was the site of the former Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame which had been recently moved to a more modern space in the atrium of the upgraded stadium. The space I am speaking of was the Hall of Fame’s first permanent facility and was formally dedicated on April 3,1976, by President Gerald R. Ford. It consisted of a huge open space, and a large office. The bathrooms were located in an area on the other side of the building. In order to reach them we’d have to go through a long dark unused area which could be quite eerie, especially

Playing with the Devil

22 July 2019 | Old hag, Ouija, ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was very young, very lost, confused and didn’t have a lot of support growing up. I was an only child and was passed around from family member to family member. Not saying I was the perfect child. I just didn’t have the best people to guide me. I was raised in the church, I mean 6 days a week and some weekends always in church. I didn’t want church, I didn’t want to be with all these different family members. I wanted my mother. Who for some reason or another was never around. I started acting out in school. Stealing, fighting ect. Finally my mother decided to send me to my aunts house. As if that wasn’t enough to add on to the stress of a teenager but she
