There's a Ghost in My House

Ghost & Haunting

I moved in my home in January, 1991. The first night, I was awakened by a low, wavering voice calling for "John." I sat up in bed and looked around the room, then I went to the window to see if someone was outside. It was a cold winter night and no one was around. I went back to bed only to hear the same voice calling for John. I sat up in my bed and told the voice to get out, that this was my house now. The voice stopped. Several months later, after I got to know my neighbor, I asked her who ha . . .

Saved by the White Cat

Personal Experience

It was a dark, cold wintry night, and the changing weather had caused a fog so dense that you couldn't see more than a foot in front of your car. My friend and I were on our way to visit someone who had given us directions to her house. After half an hour of driving, we realized that we had forgotten to take the paper with the directions on it. Our friend's new home was located in a remote rural area in the mountains of western Pennsylvania. As we passed the last landmark before her home, we beg . . .

My True (Surprise) Ouija Experience

Personal Experience

It was at my birthday party/sleepover on August 13, 1998. I had four friends there: Ivey, Michelle, Amanda, and Jackie. We were in my basement and had just gotten done playing a card game called "Aces" or "6s" (the game where you take out the 6s or the aces and each one means either yes, no, or maybe; you ask questions and use these cards to contact spirits). Anyway, we just had gotten done when Jackie asked me if I had a Ouija board. She really likes to make me mad and she knew I had hidden min . . .

The Denial of Death

Horror

"500 will be the death of you!" I woke up shuttering at those last words. I sat up and looked at the alarm clock next to my bed. 1 AM too early to do anything. I lay back down unable to sleep and stared at my ceiling for what seemed like an eternity. Something in the back of my mind seemed to be eating away at me, but its nothing I kept telling myself and rolled over and went back to sleep. 4 :00 AM I wake up something is in my house, right down the hall I don't know how but it is. I have t . . .

Lily

Personal Experience

I was so happy when she was born. I held her there in my arms, warm and smiling. Like a beautiful flower. So we called her Lily and she was the joy of my life, always wanting to help with the cooking the washing and the cleaning even though the hoover was massive compared to her. Then she got sick. Not the normal stuff like the flu. She would get horrible fevers so high that she had to stay in hospital. I thought she would come out soon enough but she dint. Cancer they said. Brain tumor. My worl . . .

The Demon Under the Bed

Personal Experience

I can remember when I was in hospital and only a few days old when a man dressed in a brown suit was standing near my crib and said, "Your destiny is not yet written!" Since then I have been visited by demons and have had strange "psychic" abilities that I do not fully understand! My first encounter with a demon was when I was around 7 years old. I was always scared of the dark, so I used to sing loudly and rock myself gently until I would go to sleep. On this particular night, we had a blackout . . .

Money from Heaven

Personal Experience

My oldest son and I were sitting in our living room discussing money, or the lack of it. It was a really bad time in my life. I was crying because I didn't have lunch money for my three sons' school lunches the next day and I didn't know what to do about it. I had decided to just keep them home from school. My son was 12 and hadn't missed a day all year and he was saying, "I can't miss tomorrow! I just can't!" All I needed was $3 and I couldn't even get that. We heard a noise in the kitchen and . . .

Vivid Visions

Personal Experience

When I was a child, I used to have floating dreams and as I got older they became flying dreams. At first they were isolated to only around the house, then as I got older I suppose you might say I went off exploring. These dreams were fantastic and more than vivid. They were lived out with other people with what seemed as actual interactions and conversations, as well as just observing what may have been going on below me as I floated or flew. After I went to college, my dreams were more and mor . . .

Voice on the Tape

Paranormal

I had an astrologer prepare my natal chart for me. At her home, only she and I and one other woman were present. The astrologer and I went to a separate room and closed the door for the reading. While she spoke, a tape recorder ran, preserving her words for me to listen to at my leisure. At one point we digressed from the reading to talk about our respective marriages and why we got married when we did. All during the reading, we were in a completely closed room, just the two of us, windows and . . .

Play It Again, Grandma

Personal Experience

I was in high school at the time. It was a Friday night and my whole family was at the high school game, as my brother was playing in it. I had been grounded for some reasons I can't remember now. My grandmother, who had lived with us, had passed away about two years earlier. She was the only one in our family who could play the piano. I only ever heard her play two songs. One was the "Third Man Theme." I was alone in the house and we had a basement. The piano that belonged to my grandmother was . . .
