New and looking for help [27 Aug 2008|02:13am]




I am new here, and, like many of you have been searching all of my life for some sort of proof of the afterlife.

To be honest, I haven't found much and despite my collections of ghost stories, my avid watching of supernatural reality television, and my visits to haunted locations, I still find myself in need  of proof that SOMETHING exists after this.  I'm assuming I'm not alone.

I call this being a Ghost Skeptic....someone who is quite obsessed with the supernatural and life after death, but someone who still doesn't quite believe it exists. 

So I'm writing a book...an article...I'm trying to gather a collection of TRUE stories from people who have had experiences.  I'm not the first one, nor will I be the last, but this is something I am very dedicated to.

Please, if you have a story, let me know in your reply.  If you'd rather tell me over private e-mails, I'd be happy to do that as well, just give me your e-mail address as I will be making ALL replies screened and will not post any you would rather not have me post.  Having as many details in your stories is very important...the names of places and buildings, dates, years, etc.  Names can be changed if you wish.  

I will not use past posted stories, as I will require your permission to use said story if I actually do finish this.  Even if I don't, I will send all of you what I have compiled.

Either way, this is just the beginning of this adventure (well the prologue is written) and I hope to find real people on Live Journal to participate. 

Thank you for your time, and here's to not being a skeptic any longer!

If this is not allowed, I apologize.

My freind's ghost... [18 Feb 2008|02:57pm]

She says that these photos were taken on different types of film 5 years apart. I think its strange that the same shape would appear with so much time apart in different areas.
She says theres also a third picture with the same shape, but she can't find it ATM, but I will post it ASAP when she does.
Let me know what you guys think.
Ghost pictures under cut!Collapse )

[21 Nov 2007|05:01pm]

So, I recently moved out about a month and a half ago, and have decided that my new apartment is haunted.
I don't know anything about the apartment, other than that it was built in the 70's, and a very lovely Somolian couple lived here before us.

Nothing specific happened previous to this incident, aside from me seeing things out of the corner of my eye and a general feeling of a presence.

Halloween morning (ironic, huh?), I was in the tub taking a bath. I was using a yellow razor, one of those disposable ones that have a little plastic cover for the blade. I shaved my legs and set the razor down on the edge of the tub. When I finished with my bath, I went to pick up my razor and put it back where it belonged, only to discover it was not on the edge of the tub any more. I figured I probably knocked it off and it was hiding somewhere on the floor, so I went ahead with the rest of my routine as normal....only to open the medicine cabinet door and discover my razor sitting on a shelf in there!!!

My roommates theory was that I absentmindedly put the razor back and forgot about it, but number one, the medicine cabinet is impossible to reach from the tub, and number two, this happened literally right after I got out of the bathtub. My conclusion is that there is a spirit in our apartment, and it was fucking with me.

Anyone else have something weird going on in their apartment?

I hope this doesn't count as a ghost story.

I've always believed in ghosts, but I never really had any experinaces with them, until recently (like the past few years).

I believe I have one that resides in my basement.
It likes to mess around with the laundry.

I have put my laundry on before, and come down an hour later and found the lid to my washer, open, full of water. And before you say it, YES i do remember putting the lid down, and watching the washer do it's work.

Then, just this morning, I went downstairs to put my laundry in the dryer, and I had found 3 pairs of pants, plus a hoodie, that I had HUNG UP on the clothes horse, and found it in the dryer.
I asked everyone who lives in my house and they all said they never touched it.

I'm seriously getting a little freaked because I don't know if it's trying to contact me, or what.

seeing ghosts [19 Nov 2007|07:25pm]

Everyone in my house has had some type of encounter with a ghost. My mother actually sees them and hears them, my step dad mostly hears them but has seen one, and my sister has seen outlines of them/they have done things to her (play her keyboard, etc)

But nothing ever happens to me. I hear nothing, I see nothing, none of my stuff gets messed with. Why am I ignored?

Magnetic Fields and Haunting Phenomena [30 Oct 2007|01:45pm]

My colleagues and I have constructed a basic primer on what parapsychologists understand about the relationship between haunting experiences and magnetism (geomagnetism and electromagnetism) and how those findings can be applied to field investigations. The first installment of the series was released today at Public Parapsychology, and future installments will be released over the next couple of days. Check it out:

 I am new here, but I wanted some feedback on somethings that have happened in my life.
Here are the stories.

I was 12[[now 19]] and my friend and I were upstairs in the attic of her house which was also her computer and storage area. We had heard a baby crying, but knew her neighbors had a baby and thought nothing of it. It was getting late and so we went down to her room to go to bed. We had turned the lights out and left the windows open since it was a cool night and her house was hot. We heard the baby again, but it sounded like it was right outside our window. It stopped and then suddenly  we heard a woman screaming. A blood curdling scream that seemed to get louder and louder. We were on the second floor, and soon it sounded like it was outside of the window. We were too scared to move, but knew the lights had to come on. My friend turned them on and we slowly turned toward the window. There was nothing there. Her parents had no idea what we were talking about.
The next night my friend and I were in the living room watching TV. Her parents had gone to bed about an hour or so before this occurance. We were watching tv and we heard someone in the kitchen and then in the basement. We figured it was her mom and thought nothing of it. About 10 minutes later the lights in the kitchen turned off but no one walked up the stairs which were behind us. My friend called for her mom. As soon as the last "M" left her throat the basement door slammed shut and we could hear running down the stairs to the basement. We ran upstairs to her room and shut the door.


I know live in a different state and with my boyfriend.
Every once in a while our dog will be suddenly woken from a dead sleep and start growling toward the closet. We used to think nothing of it until the other night. Our friends were over and we were all talking when Autumn started growling at the closet again. The door to it was shut, but something on the inside fell to the floor.
My boyfriend said this isnt the first occurance like that. He said before I moved in he would sleep with the closet door open. One night he was reading really late and a box of art supplies came flying across the room from the top of the closet followed by a few other things. He said he grabbed his Bible and began to pray and the flying objects stopped. He said he slept on the couch that night.

Comments about my occurances?

[ mood | scared ]

The first real encounter I had with anything paranormal was when I was about ten. I used to be very afraid of the dark (well, I still am, but being an adult I can cope with it a lot better), and I would lay awake in my bed at night, reading books and drawing until it began to get light out, and I would feel secure enough to fall asleep.
One night I had done this, and it was about 5am, and I was starting to feel kind of sleepy, but I wanted to wait until my dad got up for work to try and sleep. I was laying in my bed, facing towards my bedroom door out into the hallway, and into my parents open bedroom door. I was just watching their door, waiting until I saw my dad get up, and all of the sudden I heard running water in the bathroom, like someone had turned the sink on. The weird thing was though, the water pipes from the bathroom were acessable from inside my closet, and so when someone ran the sink or the shower, you could hear the pipes in the closet. I heard the sink, but the pipes didn't make a sound. From where I was laying, I couldn't quite see into the bathroom, but I would have seen anyone who went in or came out and I didn't see any reflection of the bathroom light on the floor. After the running water stopped, I heard the wastebasket being shuffled across the floor. I watched the hallway for a good 20 minutes, but no one came out of the bathroom, and after about half an hour, my dad came out of his bedroom and went into the bathroom. No one had been in there. From that day on I slept with my bedroom door shut.

A few years later, I moved into my bedroom that I'm in now, which is technically the back porch (a completely indoor porch, not screen or anything). Nothing really strange has happened in here yet, aside from noises from the windows and ceilings, but my backyard is full of trees and squirrels, plus I live in the city, so night noises are nothing new.

Wait, I take that back. Something weird DID happen in here.
One afternoon, I was home from school sick, and I was laying in my bed in my porch bedroom. I had the covers completely over my head, so I didn't actually see anything, and I had one window open, right over by my bed. As I was laying there, I heard someone come into the room. It was about 2 or 3 in the afternoon, so I thought it was either my sister come home early, or my dad. Anyways, so this person comes into the room, and is stepping very softly and lightly. I hear them sit down on my sister's bed, which was across the room, and they sat there for about five minutes. Every now and again they would sigh softly, and for some reason, I decided it was my grandma, because of the light step and feminine sighs (my grandma is tiny, and the rest of my family are pretty tall and heavy-stepping). Anyways, this person just kept sitting there sighing, and not saying anything, and I was getting annoyed, so I decided to just throw the blankets off of me and scare the living shit out of them....but when I did that, no one was there. I don't think I've ever been so scared in my life. I even got up and checked, and the house was completely empty. It couldn't have been my grandma, because she doesn't drive (that and she never comes over unannounced). She's also alive and well, by the way, and wasn't sick at the time. Thats the only time in my life that I've been ABSOLUTELY sure that I was visited by something that was not human, but it felt like such a strong human presence at the time that I didn't think anything of it, until I saw that there was no one in the house with me.

New. [26 Jun 2007|08:22pm]

[ mood | confused ]

Hi, I just have a question (along with my story, of course)...

Well, I've lived in my current house since I was 5, and I've always experienced what I guess you could call a "playmate". I don't know. Whenever I'm alone, I can't do anything without turning around and looking over my shoulder. If I'm alone in the house, and decide to take a shower, I always leave the bathroom door open and the shower curtain opened partly, because I always see things and hear things. Like just yesterday, I was taking a shower, and then I heard something knock over. I looked out of the shower and saw some of my lotion and clothes had been knocked over. Also, sometimes I see a figure of a girl, about my age I'd guess, either kneeling or standing by my bed. She's sometimes at the door, but she's there in my room everynight (or maybe it's a boy with long hair, I don't know). Sometimes he/she scratches at my door, or sometimes I feel my sheets start to be pulled higher up or being pulled down. That's usually when I wake up to see it. Also, everytime I walk through my hallway to put something up in the kitchen, I always have to run through. Sometimes I feel like something is lightly pushing my shoulders if I just walk, so I always run so I don't feel it, no matter if it's day or night. At night, whenever I run through and turn around, I can see a shape behind me running along too.

I also think something else may be in my mother's room. For some reason, I get paranoid when the closet door is open. I always feel like something's looking at me through the open door. Sometimes when I'm alone in the house, I'll take a nap in my mother's room (she has the mostcomfy bed, haha) and I always close the door, and when I wake up, it's open again, without anyone coming home.

Anyways, my question is, is the spirit rude or just playful? :x
I've been experiencing this since I moved here 10 years ago, and I want to know what's going on.

    The website for this book is: http://www.paranormalmichigan.com

   Please feel free to email me your stories, experiences, or even if you would like to help with research for this book (you would receive credit in the book, of course) please email me at founder@wmghs.com

[21 May 2007|12:20pm]

If I may I'd like to introduce to everyone a new community I've started called 'ghostevidence'.

This community is for people to present what they believe to be evidence of the paranormal. This evidence can be in the form of a video, a photograph, an EVP or even just a story so that other members can rationally and intelligently scrutinise and debate about what is being shown.

Also, if you find an interesting photo, video, evp etc. piece of evidence on the internet you'd like to group to see then post it here for us all to have a look at and discuss.

Shadow folk [03 May 2007|03:06pm]

[ mood | curious ]

So I was doing a little research about those shadow things I saw. I guess a lot of people have claimed to have seen them. Even my roommate has said she has seen them too. They only thing about my encounters is that there is no explaination for seeing it. It was not out of the corner of my eye, I was not tired, I was not the only one to see it. It could not have been mistaken for something else at all. And I have seen them for longer than just a few seconds. I am really curious to know what exactly it is and why I saw it. I kind of want to see another one since the only time I have seen them was when I was nine years old. I really want to know more. If anyone has any information I would love to have it.

Newbie [02 May 2007|03:10pm]


I am new here. A bit of background, I am 18 years old. I come from a family that have all seen paranormal. My childhood has been filled with paranormal happenings, but has died down a bit as I have become older, until recently I heard a ghost walk loudly through my house :). Although, I have not seen a ghost (except of my pet cat). I am Clairsentience, Clairaudience and Clairalience. I can feel, hear and smell paranormal activity. I have also seen an orb from time to time in my younger years. Ghosts aren't particularly nice to me, most try and scare the wits out of me! Believe me they win!
I joined because I usually never ever discuss my abilities with anyone except my family. I feel it has come to far in my life to be now living in secret. I am quite proud of my abilities. I am studying to become a scientist. This makes me feel as though I do contradict myself. I really should not believe in my scientific mind.
I look forward to hearing your stories.
