That makes two people I personally know that claim they've seen one-- the more recent guy works at a video game company and was working a late night when he came down the stairs and passed a translucent dark figure on the way down, heading up the stairs. My friend said he felt very cold when it happened. He asked around the next day and some other employees had reported seeing it as well.
I believe this guy totally-- it happened three months ago but he just now got around to telling me the story. Has anyone else on these boards experienced anything weird like that?
I know some people would think I'm crazy. You'd be surprised at what you can see if you open your mind and let it go. That is why you hear of children seeing more than adults. There minds are closed minded to the idea.
I could write a book on the strange things i have had happen, It would be a short book but still a book LOL.
Ive seen things, from moving cans and the radio dial changing to orbs and people. ive herd things, loud thumps, people calling my name, whispering. Ive felt things, that shiver that scares the crap out of you. Ive smelt things, anything from sweet to the smell of death.
When we were looking to buy our first home we walked into one place I looked at hubby said no someone died here he didnt belive me. I could smell death I got the feeling i should run away I was not going to live there. So i asked the realtor she said yes a old lady died there a few days ago I pulled out my Told ya so card stuck out my tongue and we left.
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame I'd even cut my hair and change my name
I figure anything is possible. It reminds me a of story where a guy with a cold had a fitful sleep. He wakes up in the middle of the night, and hears someone whispering his name: "Pauullll.... Pauuulll...." It was really freaking him out. He gets up the nerve to turn on the light to see if he can figure out what it is.
Personally, I've never seen anything materialize. In fact, I've begged whatever I've experienced to never materialize, or else I might have a heartattack. I can deal with the strange happenings, simply because.. I can make my brain believe it was something different and just a normal occurance. If I seen it, i'd never forget it.. It would bother me for life.
I've felt fingers fun down my back. I've had my cordless phone thrown underneath a bed. I've had makeup hidden. I've had my water turned on. I've had my toilet paper unrolled all the way. I've had radios turn off. I've had the volume on the tv go up mysteriously. I once rolled up a piece of plastic that covered a DVD only to look over and watch it flatten COMPLETELY out as if it had been IRONED over. I've had a cat stand and hiss with all hair up on it's back staring into the blankness.. when I went to pick him up he was so scared he basically attacked me.
Most of these could be explained, but the thing is.. I live alone the majority of the time, and all of the experiences.. I was indeed ALONE. I would purposely set things somewhere, knowing I put them there.. go back, they are gone. After looking the rest of the place for an hour, I go back to the first place I looked.. and It's back again. I've talked to many people claiming they specialize in paranormal activity about this.. and they say what I'm experiencing is most likely a child simply because whatever it is is playing games with me. Almost like a game of hide and seek.
There was one place my dad lived, it was an apartment on top of a warehouse building. I would wake up with red scratches in the oddest of places. Like, the middle of my back.. and being a slightly overweight individual these scratches would be places that there is no way on earth I could reach to leave them myself. Especially not as straight/deep as some of them were... I would also have horrible dreams. I'm talking dreams where there were bodies in the closets in the house. Dreams that people were murdered and I'd find them. I even had to see a psychiatrist at one time because of these experiences. However, we did not stay there very long.
Most recently, though.. with the death of my best friends brother, some really weird stuff has been going on at the house he lived in, and away from it. Tom had a real funny personality, he was bipolar as well. So, he never liked anybody to talk about him. We were talking about him one day in the food isle at petsmart, and four bags of dog food fell onto the floor with no one touching them (That could be explained easily, but still freaky). Missys dogs go crazy for no reason. Toms girlfriend, whom has a 5 year old son woke up the other morning and said to us.. "Tom came through my wall, said "Hey you little arsehole" and went back into it.".. now my question is how would a 5-6 year old KNOW to lie about anything like that? That one really bothered me.
My look on this is this.. there's an explination for everything that happens in this world. Rather it be unsettled spirits, built up energy.. energy fields.. coincidence.. or stupidity. I will tell you one thing though, It is hard for people who've never expierenced something of the sort to believe.. had I not experienced this stuff myself, I certainly wouldn't. If I knew how to push the switch off to close down that sense, I certainly would.
The bible says. woe to the earth, because Satan has come down to you, bringing with him myriads of his demons. They are trying to blind the minds of people. They want people to believe in ghosts. They have the ability to look and act like dead loved ones or somone that has died in a house. Isaiah brings out that the dead are conscious of nothing, so they cannot be the ones doing these things, although I thoroughly believe that they do happen.
As for ghosts, I feel things touching me all the time, fingers down the back to feels like a needle is stabbing you. If you take a psychology class they say its all in the mind..but still. When my grandpa died, when the paramedics took him out it all of a sudden down poured, until he was gone. Then right before they got to the garage door, the lights kept flickering on and off, like someone was just turning the light on and off, and the garage door was going crazy, up and down really really fast. I believed in ghosts before that but thats another incident that happened. Then, normally whenever I drove by his property, but random times I would smell my grandpa. I think he's visiting me, seeing how I'm doing, I miss him a lot. Other people would tell stories of furniture moving in the house while they were watching or like a remote control being on a chair at a kitchen table, random places where you would not put an item like that. I get nervous and still run up the stairs of where I used to live because I felt like something was there, a very creepy feeling. Then I'll always see a figure, like a reflection in the monitor or somewhere in the house. There's a theory that there's another world, thats somehow connected, and thats why we see 'people', and if it collided somehow something really bad would happen, like explode or something, its an interesting theory, I kind of believe it, I've been seeing stuff like that my entire life. I hear things all the time too, I'll hear my name, whispers. Then I've always smelled random smells, but I always thought that was just me remembering those, somehow. I'll randomly smell apple pie or marshmallows. One time I had a dream I was eating a giant marshmallow and I woke up and I was eating my pillow..thats way off subject. lol, Anywho. I believe in ghosts, always have, I also believe in "aliens", there is no way in this huge galaxy we are the only living beings, so I'm waiting for that day, maybe I'll be gone by then.
You speak of "other wordly beings" and I will tell you.. that is my one and only biggest fear. I cannot watch the movie "signs" without crying hysterically. The first time I watched it, before I watched it.. I was completely unaware that it was going to affect me the way that it did. I didn't even know that I was bothered by the concept of aliens. That movie really makes you think about things.. just like the movie 28 Days Later. With the way the government is working these days, you just never know.. and It's really frightening.
O yea, I have no doubt in my mind the government is hiding information from us, for anything, I vote we take them down! lol, I'm serious though, I will be involved with a revolution. I'm terrified of aliens, as well, if we ever did "meet" with them, it would be a excited/terrified mixture. Plus, they look creepy and gross to the point I would cry if it got near me..lol. That movie, wow, I can't remember, either 6/7 sins..I think its 7..because yea. Well, that guy that the "murderer" had captive for about a year and he was all blue and icky, I have a feeling that the face is going to pop up in front of me and go 'boo'. Haha, I'm still quite childish, I fear. Its raining a lot..again..:( I wonder if its because my mood droppped so suddenly..and yes, there was stimuli to cause the mood change, :P. I find this to be an interesting topic, :).
have any of you read the story of the mother cat who died? Its been a wile but this farm cat had litter after litter one day a farie or angle or something came to take her away she said no she is needed she but they decited she would never be forgoten once she did die. the cat dies the farm wife puts her in the trash and the husband said something like Didnt mother cat die? I could have sworn I just saw hr running along the woods.
what happend kinda reminded me of that. Ill see if I can find a link in a min
So me and hubby go outside for a smoke. he walks out the frount door I go to flip the light on. as soon as i touched the light switch I saw a cat run between hubbys legs. and i fliped the switch. Of corse there was no cat around.
ll in all i have lived in 4 homes that had something. that may seem like alot but figure i moved once or twice every school year, and moved to cali every summer its not that much. My dad lived in one haunted place. This is one of my fave storys.
My dad moved in with a friend. The house they lived in was a whore house in the 1800's (i think back in the cowboy days). My dad and his girlfriend shared most of the bottom floor. Ill try to explain the house as best as i can. Picture an old cowboy movie the cowboy walks into a bar there are ladys upstares by the railing. It was like that but upstares was mosre like 2 U's connected by a walk way and it was alot larger then what they show in the movies. The shower was one large room with tons of shower heads. there were 2 wooden mermaids carved on the bar, one on each side. Tons of rooms upstares a few down. every night the place was full of men and women having fun, drinking, fooling around, partys night after night.
the partys didnt stop when the place closed, It didnt even stop in the 1900's infact i would put money donw right now saying there will be one tonight unless one woman lives there now.
so here is what happend. Every night it would start with a nude lady walking into the bathroom and turning on every shower head, then walk out (there were 2 doors one on each side). then my dad would get up and tunr them all off. then came the music. You could hear music through out the whole place, If you walked to were you could see the banasters upstares you would see men and women standing along them talking, laughing, flirting. next would be the doors. One door would slam shut and the room would be filled with giggling and Lets just leave it with giggling shall we LOL. later one another would shut, Dors would open and shut all night each time one shut the room was filled with giggline and other sounds. Befor it all stoped everyone would dance. That happend almost every night, everynight they came to a place they loved and partyed like it was 1800.
The only nights it wouldnt happen were the nights she would spend the night. My dads friend also had a girl friend. this woman was a hard core B. when she would spend the night lights would flicker, things would break, things would be throughen at her. she would blame my dad and his girlfriend. In the end dad and cath moved out.
If I found out that place was forsale right now and i could afford it We would be moving to california tomarow. It was the perfect house for any family that does no get freaked easly. though i dought i can get my hands on it with out spending a few mill.
there was the house my grandma lives in. I dont know what was going on there but you do not go downstares with no lights on. I went back 3 years ago and I still couldnt do it. You get half way down and want to scream and run back up into the kitchen as fast as you can. I do it, my brother does it, hubby said it felt wierd down there but he didnt want to look like a freak running away from nothing, My grandma and grandpa are the only 2 people who dont feel it. they think the rest of us are nuts.
When I lived between ava and bradleyville we rented this cool old place, it was run down and kinda crappy on the inside but you could tell with a little work it would be a wonderfull home. I had a large Cd collection and did nothing but listen to the radieo. Every night wile listening the channle would go from a mix station (80's and 90's) to country. This happend every night, it didnt move a few stations over it would move across one way then the next then stop o the same country station every night. id get up and change it back and it would change agin. Finaly i said what ever and started listening to Cds. one by one they would go missing. the only one that didnt go missing was tupac. I started keeping it with me at all times.
the house we moved into befor this one was cool. I think we had passers. They wouldnt hurt anything, one stayed for a wile playig with my soda can. They never stayed longer then a night. I saw a few, I could feel some.
then this place i hear people talking to me, I search the huse but nothing, I can hear thumps i search the house and nothing
I love it
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame I'd even cut my hair and change my name
We did a ghost tour in Gettysburg a few weeks back. These pictures were taken in what is supposedly one of the world's most haunted houses. To us it looks like we got something on film. You guys can be the judge.
Nice orbs. what kind of cam was it? sometimes it can be caused by dust on the film but if its its a diggie then there is no film.
I wish i had the picture still you guys would love it. I was outfrount of Mc donalds letting my mom take pictures befor prom and in one of the pistures above the street lamp there was this white round flat shape. It looked nothing like an orb it was white not a see through color. It was cool.
I have never sen anything, heard anything, touched, or felt anything wierd. Maybe they just don't like me! :-) But, all of my friends and family claim to have in my bedroom at my parents house. The biggest person claiming this is my Grandma and then all of my friends have all said they feel someone tugging on them, or feel pressure from a hand on them, etc. I know an elderly lady used to stay in that room and passed away right before my parents bought the house (I don't think she passed away in the house). Maybe my mind is really closed, because I don't understand why I have never had any "encounters" in my own room, but all of my guests have. Weird.

I was watching a t.v show yesterday about real haunted places. It showed the ghosts walking around or running and they would move things around, this was at a reteraunt hotel place and a hotel in Hawaii. And then their was this old western place where cowboys used to come and smoke and play poker and the ladies would entertain them as they played poker and who ever lost the game got shot so that place was loaded with ghosts, one of the ladies that works their said sometimes you will be walking and you will randomly smell smoke and perfume coming from the ghost cowboys that smoke and then the ladies would wear a bunch of perfume, weird!!! And then she said the poker chairs would randomly move around and the lady said sometimes you will be walking and you feel a strange presance or extremely sudden cold chills. Also their was this coin machine that would play songs and it would only come on if you put money in it, and the workers said that sometimes it comes on randomly or they lock their offices and turn off the lights and the next day they walk in the offices are open the lights are on and music is playing. They said they even see the spirits walk around. I thought it was kind of cool but scary at the same time LOL
Me and my family went on a ghost hunt in gettysburg to LOL My dad or mom had to hold my hand the entire time or else I was staying behind LOL I am freaked to death of ghost, I kept chickening out. Leo we went into haunted houses as well, and they were creepy we saw the straingest things happen. The hallways in those old houses, aren't they extrememly narrow LOL You practical gotta walk in line to get each person in the hallway LOL Then we went to the gettysburg cemetary, I don't really remember seeing anything creepy, but it was just creepy hearing about how that place was once covered in blood YUCK and it was midnight and we had flash lights in order to walk around. I almost peed my pants walking through that cemetary LOL Every time I heard a noise I was like what was that. I had just turned 11 when we went to gettysburg LOL and I was freaked out my dad and brothers gave me pigy back rides through the cemetary LOL :) I'm a chicken!!!
