The Paranormal

Recommended Posts

GTArv

Thought I'd post this here, all of a sudden I've become interested in paranormal entities and bizarre happenings.

 

Once I was walking down a street at night alone. Suddenly I sensed a weight upon my shoulder, like someone placing their hand on it. I was stunned for a second, but after a moment, I could no longer feel the pressure. I do not know if it was the act of something supernatural, or my half asleep mind playing tricks on me.

 

A few years back I came across the Bélmez Faces and could never forget about those images. Another thing that captured my attention was Mary Lincoln and Abe Lincoln's Ghost.

 

The existence of ghosts and other paranormal entities is debatable, but weird things do happen. Anything strange that has happened to you people, or something bizarre you've come across? Lets discuss.

I do not believe in such things because I have to see them first.

There was once, I was out in my yard with my sister.It was dark and as I looked to the sky I saw a white oval shaped light that was moving slowly.Years later I watched a documentary and it seems that the thing I saw matched the description of a globular lightning which are rare and unexplained.

Well if there are ghosts I doubt they'd be any typical "dead people haunting" you or "try to talk to you again" type ghosts. They could be creatures in some type of different dimension that are finding ways to break through into our dimension and contact us. That makes much more sense to me, as I don't believe we have any type of life after death.

 

I haven't seen any solid shapes or figures, or even large figures, but I do see and even hear things from time to time. Usually quick black flashes in the corner of my eyes and some times I can follow it for a second and it just zips away.

Meh, im not sure. I have heard very wierd things and maybe even seen things, but I usually just tell myself its my concience (or something).

 

But if these spirits do exist, O still wouldn't believe that you turn into one when you die. Because that just leaves so many dilemas.

Im not exactly interested in paranormal things, they just happen to me. dontgetit.gif

I remember I was home alone when I was 13ish, I could hear the light switches of the room next door being turned on and off. I also remember I was falling asleep on the couch around the same time and it felt like someone was prodding me in the back.

 

However as always I'm sceptical. There are too many reasons to immediately jump to the supernatural. I don't have any explanations of what could have happened (goosebumps for the second one maybe) but likewise I've no reason to believe there were "spirits".

 

People jump to the supernatural way too quickly just because they can't explain some weird happenings, it really does my head in.

Wait....

Once I was in the kitchen and I was home alone with mom.I kept hearing this noise that seemed to me like somebody was using the cart I have in the back.

I looked trough the window and nothing was there.As I went out the noise stopped.

 

And sometimes I hear knocks or steps in the attic.It's creepy!

 

 

Also there is a strange thing that happened to mom a long time ago.Her mother died and there was this night when the light looked strange, it would turn to blue or red.She went to sleep.After a while she felt that she started floating.She said that she probably was awake at the time she was floating around the room because she could hear the TV.She was too afraid to open the eyes and she said that she was heading for the door and then she imagined a cross or something in her mind and she was trown back in bed and then she woke up.

I was incredibly skeptic about paranormal anomalies, ghosts, spirits, etc etc and all that, but the story I am going to type is 100% true, a personal experience that really changed my views on that subject.

 

My father works in IT, which is how computers talk to one another, routers, switches, etc etc. My mother is a teacher at a school. The principal asked my father to fix the computers there because they were malfunctioning. He agreed.

 

All these encounters are around 5:00PM to 6:00PM

 

He comes back home and says that he heard people talking, voices. When he went outside to check it out, nobody was there. Whenever he went upstairs he felt as if he was being watched, the hairs on the back of his neck standing up. He also claims he saw an orb of light go down the stairs, across the wall, and out the door. I was incredibly skeptic. I don't believe anything like that unless I see it with my own eyes.

 

The second time he goes, he brings me along with him. I bring my phone to record some video, so I leave it on a ledge to record. Him and I are going upstairs, I feel as if someone is watching me, my breathing gets harder. A sense of heavyness is around. Going back downstairs, I grab my phone and stop the recording. As my father is sitting at one of the desks there, we both hear footsteps upstairs, and chairs being pulled out. We both look at eachother. "Holy sh*t, did you hear that?" "Yea, what the -f*ck- was that!?" I darted out the building. After reviewing the video, the screams of a woman can be heard. Numerous times.

 

The third time I also go with him. I stay in the principals office out of fear. While he is fixing the computers, I feel as if there is another presence around, that I am being watched. I get out of the chair to go outside, but the door is locked. After struggling for a few minutes, and calling my dad over, the door finally opens, and I run out. I stand there stairing at the old stone building. I look up to the second story window and notice a white, semi-transparent figure in the window looking straight down at me. I pull out my phone to take a picture, but right when I pull it up to my face, a force pushes my phone back, still in my hands. It hits me in my face, knocking my glasses off. The picture is still taken. After reviewing it when I'm in the car driving home, I can see part of the figure.

 

Now, time for a history lesson.

 

It turns out the building is around 150 years old. It was owned by a rich family, they held balls, parties, all of that rich, fancy, high lifestyle things people would do.

The man is cheating on his wife with one of his maids, he gets her pregnant. The wife finds out and sets the house on fire, trapping the maid baring the mans child. She locks the gates so the firefighters could not get in. She ultimately dies.

 

My mother asked the other people who work there about it. "Oh yea, that stuff happens all the time!" "Mhmm, this place sure is haunted."

 

I've never gone back there again.

 

Basically, that was a big turning point for me with the paranormal and all that.

I don't believe in life after death but lately (as in this morning) I've been open-minded.

 

Two things have happened that I really can't explain unless there are burglars or something: this morning I went for a slash which lasted 5 minutes if that and I went back in my room to find my jeans not only on the end of my bed, but folded, the belt buckled done up and the zip up. Now I usually leave them on my floor completely undone and I even remember stepping over them to go to the toilet. Everyone else was asleep. So WTF?

 

Second (well, first) thing that happened was in April. I was in the hallway by the stairs and I head footsteps as though someone was walking up the stairs and saw at the corner of my eye the outline of someone's legs going past the banister, I assumed it was my dad. And right that moment, my dad steps out of the kitchen, thinking *I* was the one coming down the stairs for breakfast. My mum was out at the time. So again, WTF?

 

I'm still very skeptical and have been trying to think of logical explanations for it but I just can't and it's actually a bit frightening. The only thing stopping me from being really afraid is that I'm telling myself that if whatever it was was nasty then they wouldn't fold up my clothes and put them (albeit not neatly) on my bed. confused.gif

Thanks for sharing your experiences guys. Brr, creepy stuff.

 

Katalix, yours was particularly ghastly. It sure gave me a chill down the spine. Could you post that picture you took? Please don't get me wrong, by no way I mean to question the authenticity of your account.

 

Oxi - Maybe you did fold up your jeans, and forgot about it? The apparition on the stairs is completely inexplicable though. WTF indeed.

At times, when I'm tired and most susceptible to sounds and sights, I feel quite uneasy in my own home, often late at night when its dark. Probably a simple fear, but the old lady that lived in our home did die here. However, I've never experienced anything directly paranormal, and if I did, I would be terrified. Some of these accounts I've read here really do put me on the edge, especially Katalix's stories.

 

I actually listened to some very weird, unnerving sounding delta brain waves (some stuff to do with meditation). After I listened to it, I really felt uneasy, here's something relating to that from Wikipedia:

 

Sound is thought to be another cause of supposed sightings. Frequencies lower than 20 hertz are called infrasound and are normally inaudible, but scientists Richard Lord and Richard Wiseman have concluded that infrasound can cause humans to experience bizarre feelings in a room, such as anxiety, extreme sorrow, a feeling of being watched, or even the chills.

This may have had something to do with my experience.

Sometimes I am convinced that some things are actually real, I remember clearly this one time I was just about to go to sleep. I had one hell of a day that day, but that is another topic. Anyway, I was just about to go to sleep, you know the feeling you get when you are dead tired, and you could just go out any moment? I just could not find the perfect position to go to sleep in, so I tumbled around a bit, then I decided to put the covers over me, then I opened my eyes, looked up, and I could see a dark, shadowy figure just standing there overlooking me in my bed. I had left the tv on so that is how i saw the shadow. My heart was probably beating 10 times a second, I was terrified. So I just gave it a few seconds to let myself calm down, then I threw the covers completely off of me, and there was nothing there.

 

To this day, I have always wondered what it was. To me, it looked like a man with either a beret or one of those hats that the mafia would wear. I guess it was just my mind playing tricks because I was so tired...

Personally I don't believe in ghosts or anything. I probably have had freaky experiences that many other people would class as "paranormal" but most of the time there's been an explanation and it's probably just been my mind playing tricks on me.

 

I've only ever had one thing happen to me so far in my life that I couldn't explain. I was sleeping one night and I was kind of half-awake and I heard this really low, freaky voice saying "I'm going to kill you". Then I woke up. I have no idea where it came from because I've never seen, watched or heard anything that could connect it. I've also had dreams where I have experienced an unbelievable level of fear. The strange thing is I wouldn't even class these nightmares as that scary, but for some reason while I was experiencing them I could feel this unimaginable fear. Only happened a couple of times though.

Recent chain of events. Very strange.

 

  • Many years previously I saw a grey figure at my grandmother's house. It was at the window, no features were visible and it said hello. Speaking in my grandmothers voice (?). Being a mere child at the time I chalked this up to a trick of the light ot tiredness.
  • However I recently found out that the house I was in was previously occupied by a couple who died under murky circumstances.
  • Stranger still, I was told that once, whils sleeping in said house. I complained the next morning about seeing an unknown woman in my room. Having blacked out most of my childhood, this is very bizzare indeed.

Yes, I believe in ghosts.

I seen a shadow walking up my stairs a few years ago. Sorta seemed like it was wearing a top hat and a cloak, like a Victorian or something. That's my only paranormal experience, if you can even call it that.

 

My sister has had alot though. Her house is supposed to be haunted and she's seen all this stuff, ranging from her boyfriend's dead dad to a previous owner of the house who hung himself. She even seen some green glow on her floor and got a picture of it on her mobile, which was then sent to me, which then scared the sh*t outta me.

 

So yeah, I believe in ghosts.

I believe some of the scientific explanations of paranormal activities, and it's possible for someone to experience them, even if they do not exist.

 

When we moved out to england in 96 we moved into a house wich had a second floor. This was fairly new to me and whenever i was alone i often felt being watched. I would suddenly get the same feeling as when someone enters a room you're in and you don't see them, although you know they're there. I also had nightmares connected to the second floor and still do at times. Sometimes before falling asleep i'll automatically get thoughts of walking around the house with someone around.

 

I would never go back to that house, even though i know at least one of the explanations above is true. Your mind plays tricks on you and you get a feeling wich you cannot overcome. It's a horrible experience.

Yeah there were lots of different scenarios, but they always revolved around something that would not show itself and if it did it would do so through people i knew (family members etc). It would always act the same way, but it never looked the same.

 

Also, one morning i was having breakfast when all of a sudden i felt someone walking into the room (mentally, not physically), so it wasn't just the second floor.

I myself have never seen anything spectacular with regards to the paranormal, and I sort of hope I don't!

My little sister however has said she's seen quite a few things at a house we used to live in when she was about 5-6.

 

She woke my parents up one night complaining that there was a little girl sitting on a chair in her room that wouldn't talk to her and had no face, but an inspection of her room found nothing that could even come close to that description.

Another time she woke my other sister up and complained there was a tall, thin man sitting on the window seat and he wouldn't go away or talk to her, On inspection, nothing.

 

Her electronic toys would often stat doing things at night that they didn't during the day, one toy that talked would sometimes pipe up only at night at completley random times but never did it during the day one, I was walking past her room one night and heard it, so I went in thinking she'd be playing with it to fand she was asleep and the toy was at the other side of the room.

 

Creepy to say the least, it was an old house too, 100 years old and a big Victorian grand place. Our current house is over 200 years old but I've never seen or heard anything weird, thank goodness.

Uhhh, like, one time I was, like, walking in my house, and I like, saw a cat outta the corner of my eye, and I like totally almost tripped over this cat, maaaan, so I was like, "What the hell cat!" but, like, then the cat wasn't there. confused.gif Ghost cat, maaaan.

 

Sorry, had to lighten the mood of this topic rolleyes.gif

 

Anyways, I don't believe in paranormal stuff at all. The human brain, like any creatures' brain, has some natural instincts, like being scared of the dark or scared of spiders, etc. The reason for these instincts is to help humans stay alive. Humans can't see well in the dark, which means humans are in greater danger of having some kind of injury in the dark. Therefore, humans have a natural instinct to be more nervous and cautious in the dark, or to make them avoid the dark altogether. All creatures have these natural instincts to help them survive.

 

Having said that, these "paranormal" happenings are probably just your brain getting in a bit of a frenzy whenever you're in a spooky environment. We've all heard ghost stories and all these "paranormal" things and stuff, people talk about them all the time, so in a way, your brain sort of believes in these things. I mean, you, yourself, might not actually believe in ghosts, but having heard ghost stories, the idea of ghosts is in your brain. So when you're in the types of environments used in ghost stories, your brain makes you suspicious that there could be ghosts around, and therefore, you involuntarily interpret things like noises or motions around you as possibly being ghosts.

 

But who knows? People are always talking about random orbs of light and stuff like that. I've never seen anything like that, so I believe it's BS.

In Kent there's quite a lot of ghost stories floating around. (no pun intended)

 

I mean, we have Pluckley, which is the most haunted Village in Britain, we have many very ancient burial grounds, etc, etc. Probably the most famous ghost in Kent is The Ghost of Bluebell Hill.

 

 

I've only had one or two personal experiences with ghosts though, one of which was pretty damn creepy if I do say so myself.

 

A couple of years ago me and my dad went on an evening 'ghost tour' around some of the shallower tunnels of Fort Amherst. By ghost tour, I mean that you and several groups of people are guided around the tunnels, and at certain points you stop, and the guide tells you a story about this particular area of the tunnels.

 

About halfway through we stopped in this room, and we was told a tragic story about an incident that happened many many years ago, and one of the victims was this teenage girl. Now I'm not sure of the details, but either she or her father was involved in an accident and was killed, so the girl would of died by that, or by suicide.

 

Anyway, we was told to close our eyes, and try to imagine the incident that took place for a minute or so. During this my dad (he's asthmatic, but he was fine at the time) could feel a big weight pushing on his shoulders, and he felt it harder to breathe, and after that he was sure someone was there. Once all that was over a few photographs were taken, and we carried on and began to walk slightly up towards ground level.

 

Now between where we was and ground level was this big room that was used as this massive bedroom (for over nighters, etc) and then this very steep staircase. We was all standing in this big room, and the guide walked up these stairs and found the gate/door leading to the forts paddock was locked. This was probably just chavs messing around and shutting the gate for a laugh, so that's nothing to worry about. While the guide went to walk all the way back to the other side of the tunnels to get the keys, the group stayed in this big bedroom type room.

 

During this we all noticed just how cold it was, I'm talking misty cold, way colder than just a few metres above at ground level. It was also colder here than it was in the deeper parts of the tunnels, which is strange. We also heard a few wierd noises coming from various spots while we waited, which is also strange. I'm pretty sure there was something/someone here, the atmosphere in that room was just cold, I cant put my finger on it exactly, but it's a strange feeling.

 

A few minutes later, the guide arrived with the door keys, and we all went outside and walked round the fort to where we started. We all checked our photos at this point, and one of the people who took photos in the first creepy area (the one with the dead girl) had this spectacular picture on his camera.

 

The picture was a shot just behind the area where my dad thought he felt something, and it was a big, grey misty figure, that almost took the shape of a human female form, sitting down, slouched, in a very depressed manner. Almost like she was crying.

 

I have no idea what happened to this picture, whether the guy put it on the internet or not, but it was very, very chilling to see. Especially considering it complimented the story well, and because my dad felt something there.

 

I'm now certain that place is haunted, I cannot find any other way to explain what I felt in that room, nor what I felt when I saw that picture.

I don't believe in such entity's, I just assume I am hallucinating, things like this happen to me maybe twice a year, when I have had so much soda that I cannot sleep.

 

Loss of sleep = hallucinations

 

I don't drink, and I never will, My dad has gone mentally insane because of alcohol.

That's my house.

 

Built: 1865

Original Owner: Unknown

 

Creepy.

 

 

I have seen multiple apparitions within my house.

I've once seen a dog, shrouded in black, laying on the top of my couch. I've seen a lady, dressed in a black dress, her whole body, shrouded in darkness. She walked behind the French doors that seperate my living room from the kitchen. I've also seen a woman, who's face was burnt and mangled, peer into the living room from the kitchen, as soon as I blinked, she disappeared.

 

I also saw one last night, laying on the couch. I only saw half of the body. It was a white, transparent figure just laying there. I ran upstairs, I got -REALLY- skeeved out considering it was like, 2:30 AM.

 

Now, going back to the lady with the burnt face, there was a family who lived in the house, but died when the rug caught on fire and spread throughout the house. The Town Hall also went on fire, and lost the records of my house. Only -my- house.

 

 

Yes, my pajama pants have money on them.

You haven't done much research on those things, have you?

 

Both examples you have given have turned out to be bullsh*t.
