10 Signs Your House Is Haunted

Strange noises in the middle of the night. Cold chills in heavy air. That feeling of someone watching you in an otherwise empty room. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, the haunted house is a staple of horror, folklore, and maybe even reality.

Here are just ten signs that your house may be haunted, in no particular order.

10. Electronic Disturbances

A light switches on. Or off. Maybe your television changes channels by itself, or a strange interference occurs on your radio or telephone. It’s hard to say whether or not such things might be caused by unintended house guests, but if you ever find a toaster dancing on your counter top, you know who to call.

In fact, many believe that paranormal entities may be drawn to areas of anomalous electrical patterns — ley lines, vortices, and other such strange phenomena. Or, perhaps, the spirits are the ones who cause these anomalies.

According to the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena, some claim that ghosts and spirits may “produce static electric field changes” or even negative air ions. If this is true, perhaps it would explain why electrical disturbances occur during many reported hauntings.

9. Disappearing Objects

Ever lose something — car keys, the remote, your cell phone — only for it turn up again in the strangest of places? Or worse, right back where you know you left it?

This may be the result of something called Disappearing Object Phenomenon. Where do the objects go? I don’t know. A parallel universe, a slip through time. It could just be a case of you missing it the first time you looked…or it could be a mischievous spirit playing tricks.

It’s always hard to say when you’re dealing with the paranormal. For many who have reported sightings, vanishing objects are long-term phenomena. One individual posting to Reddit, for example, described it simply, “It happens so much at this house that we joke ‘it’s lost to the void.'”

“The objects usually just disappear. You would swear you misplaced it or it may have fell but I’ve had items disappear right from my desk while sitting and end up in the middle of the room later.” – shadowlilliium/Reddit

Sometimes, the items return. Sometimes, they don’t. If they do, you can only ever wonder: Where had they been?

8. Strange Noises

Hauntings can manifest as faint whispers or grumblings, or a mysterious rapping on the wall. The sound of footsteps in a hallway. Phantom music. There have even been reports of guttural, animalistic sounds, in the case of demons and possessions.

If you ever hear something like that, or what sounds like a little doll running around upstairs, maybe think about getting a new place.

Don’t believe me? Consider the case of one person and her family who moved into an old house — formerly a church — that once belonged to an eccentric old woman. The old woman had collected all sorts of strange and occult books and other oddities. Mirrors, as well, which they thought she may have used to act as “portals for spirits.” Strangest of all, when they moved in, many of the old woman’s belongings were still there, like her toothbrush, some clothes, other things. Like she had left in a hurry.

Long story short, many unexplained things happened in that house, culminating with a demonic voice shouting into the witness’s ear, screaming that it “wanted her back.” It was a sound of “pure hate” and evil.

“It was violent and forceful and it said it so fast, so loud. I jumped up out of my chair and my dog was losing it, standing at the top of the recliner, barking at something, something I couldn’t see…” – bunnyrose9/Reddit

They eventually moved. I’m sure you can understand why.

7. Rogue Shadows

Shadow people come in many shapes and sizes, or so I’ve heard. Dark spectres, outlines, black masses, menacing silhouettes in the shapes of humans. Some are clearer, perhaps, like the Hat Man. Whether they’re demons or simple ghosts or, well, eye floaters, lurking shadows in the corner of your eye may be a sign that your house is haunted.

6. Abnormal Animal Behavior

They say animals, and even small children, are particularly sensitive to the goings-on in the paranormal world.

I even saw a show once where rabbits  — yes, rabbits — were experiencing a Paranormal Activity scenario (which, I admit, I thought was a little weird). But it’s true: dogs and cats react to things we can’t see, even if it’s just infrasound from rattling pipes. If your pets are acting strangely — like a dog barking around certain areas of the house, or a cat following an invisible force with its eyes — you may have something going on.

5. Strange Dreams and Nightly Terrors

Sleep paralysis, or hypnagogia, can explain away a lot of various and terrifying sensations — awakening to a feeling of terror or a presence in your room, hearing footsteps, and even feeling the weight of a wicked witch pressing down upon your chest. But strange dreams involving people you don’t know and recurring night terrors are said to be a sign that something else may be afoot. Are spirits trying to contact you from the other side?

4. Unexplainable Feelings

Dreams are one thing, but have you ever felt like you’re being watched? That there’s someone in the room with you even though you know you’re alone? You may also feel chills in the air or, even more unsettling, the feeling of being touched by an invisible hand. If these sensations occur regularly in specific areas of your home, you may be living in a haunted house.

3. A History of Darkness

Every house has a story, some darker than others. If your house is an older one, it may worth learning its history, if for no other reason than to satiate your curiosity. But you may find that your home played a role in a darker past — murder, suicide, strong emotional turmoil. All of these are said to increase the chances that your house may be haunted, or that residual spiritual energy may remain. Having a house built on top of an ancient Indian burial ground is particularly bad news.

2. Psychokinetic Activity

Psychokinetic activity is a fancy word for things moving around without any visible reason. Cupboards flying open, doors swinging wide, or glasses flying off tables might be a sign that a ghost or poltergeist is making its presence known. And if your entire kitchen erupts in a flurry of open cupboards and silverware a la Paranormal Activity 2…I don’t know. You’re on your own on that one.

1. Ghostly Apparitions

And last but not least, there’s always one sure-fire way to know your house is haunted. Well, usually. They may be rare, but full-body apparitions and ghostly wisps of light are definite signs that something extraordinary is happening. Take a picture, if you get the chance.

Well, these are the things I’ve heard, anyway. I’ve never been haunted, myself, or experienced too much in the way of paranormal activity. Maybe I’m lucky. Or unlucky. At any rate, do you know any other characteristics of a haunted house? Ever lived in one? Leave your comments below…

  1. Looks like my old house was haunted (To bad we had to move out, I love investigating the paranormal, and it was right on my doorstep). Lucky out new house has what (according to this) looks like a haunted forest. YAY!!!

    1. my old house was super haunted.. we just moved out but most of those things happened…. whenever the night would come around it would be like minecraft. lol. i would see shadows of people. full bodies walking then disapearing… one time i was pressured to smoke and when i told my family lights were flickering like crazy. i always felt like i was being watched.. one time i was listening to a song by a comedian.. and in the song the guy says how he dont believe in jesus.. right at that part i heard a BANG on my window. few days later i heard knocking on my heater…. i ges im glad i left but i miss it too… i lived there my whole life….

    2. What you are pondering here- the parallel world phenomena, I have explained scientifically in my book “Real Dreams, Parallel World and the world they reveal”. If you like to read I could send you a copy.

    3. I’ve been haunted Sense I was 8 ever sense I saw a black moving figure in my room that’s when it started and then in 6th grade my friend dared me to play the spiritual board ( idk how to spell it XD) and the spirits are saying that I am a gifted girl and I’m supposed to be a spirit not on earth so yea I’ve been finding more about myself and I keep on having the same dream over and over. If there’s any questions ask me ;p

  2. I have experienced many things, the things that i have experienced are:
    Psychokinetic Activity
    unexplainable Feelings
    Strange Dreams and Nightly Terrors
    Rogue Shadows
    Strange Noises
    Disappearing Objects
    When i have seen them or heard them first i was scared but then it was normal (for me) those paranormal activities If i get the change to caught a ghost i will do it.

  3. Everyone may think that I fell off my rocker. It is very true when someone passes on especially trajically like my husband did. I have seen my husband’s spirit or his image in many places since his death on August 20,2014. While I was staying at my parents home for a few days after his death, I saw him there twice and then I stayed with a friend for another few days due to the fact I did not want to be in my home alone. I saw him there but he spoke to me and said in a firm tone of voice while pointing toward the direction of our home “go home, go home”. Since I’ve been home I can not count the times I have saw him. I have even felt like he was putting his arms around my waist from behind like he would usually do and there has been times that I was in bed crying and it could feel as if someone sit on my bed behind me and put their arm again and at times I could feel as if someone was laying beside me. I can feel like at night since it has gotten cold as if someone is tucking my cover around me. I get urges or like I have been told to pick up my phone and listen to certain songs on YouTube but I feel as if I am being led through to what songs to listen to. The first time that happened I was led to the song “hello it’s me ” by Todd Rodguin and who else but my husband would it be. There are songs that I never knew who the artist was or the name of the song but I have heard them bc my has had me to listen to them in the past by him just playing them for me. Another thing my male cat has become super attached to me he follows me everywhere I go even to the bathroom, as I leave to go somewhere my cat comes out my window and meets as I am coming down my steps and like he has to kiss me bye just like my husband would me before I leave and no he didn’t climb out the window. So I feel like my husband’s spirit may be in my home were we lived for six years up to death. I feel as if he came home to me. He always wore his keys clipped to his beat loop and I can hear his keys jingle like they did when walked. You can take this how you like but I do believe in spirits and they can make themselves known if they want to.

    1. I don’t think your off your rocker im a medium there are lots of people out there just like you

      1. Where do you live? You can’t trust all mediums. Some are good, some are bad. But you do need the help of a spirit communicator. Also ask Jesus to protect you. The crucifix is very powerful. Call upon Archangel Michael to protect you.

      2. Agreed with Judith, prayers is stronger than anything. Yet I did tried used prayers to get rid of my heart ache and burning, for temporary. If anyone consumed the dark magic in form of foods etc. You must get priest or medium to help remove from inside your body. Cleansing house with prayers from priest is a must if encountering abnormal paranormal activities.

      3. michele, if you are a medium i have a question, ok i think i am starting to have haunting, because i have nt heard any voices. but it feeels like i get unexplained scratcces or qowies that i have never made, thigs have disapperad and have never come back, i have ben sexual assult, i have feelings lik something is holing or pushing me down while i am lying don and beeing sexually asultd and that is bn going n for a hil now. and i have and blackouts that i an’t explain, at tims i have been held down and can’t move, some times when i am being held down my mouth all of a suddon oens and is kept oen for like 5 to ten miutes afe that it closes and i ddon’t know what going on, and i am reaally worried whats going on and my parents don’t believe me and i don’t know what to do. And sometimes t fells like i am being contactd but i don’t now ho it is. It feels ike i am being hit on the head and fall asleep and i don’t know if its a ghost, polergeist, demon, i don’t know and i am very scared that it will keep going on, and hen i am being seualyy assulted and i get up it feels like whoever is doing it is stuck or stuck its self and can;t get out and its scareing me a lot. like i am being pused, haveing skinned burned theen scratched then icturs on my skinand i don’t know whre its comeing from and the pictures are very disturbing to me, i really need your help to figure out wht going on and i want it to stop and i am literally scared tat it will get worse or never stop. plz help me if you are really a medium and tell me what i shold do t resolvee this.

      4. Hi Daniella, I believed possible your condition is a minor seizure. That includes some of your symptoms, perhaps try to go hospital have a test. I have gone through numerous phenomena of possessions and even disturbance at ultimate level awakening especially night falls for past 25 years. I am litt’ used to it. There are numbers of reasons if you are really being disturbed by paranormal, your house history, parents and even have you close encounter with any enemy friends? What religion you are and even your family? That will leads you the answer you need or where to seek for priest or medium so called. Sometimes it might be related to the above, if not it might have follow you home from the night. It happened mostly.

      5. Hi, im sorry ur so frightened. I remember watching a show deacribing similar things and it turned out to be a succubus? Have a look at that maybe it will help

      6. I was at my sisters house in the US visiting. The first night there I lay in bed trying to get off to sleep, suddenly I felt the pillow raise up lifting my head up and then down again, I was motionless and terrified. A few seconds later the same thing happened only this time it was much more higher and forceful. I was rigid with fear.

      7. Michele, I know this is an old post but I’d love to chat about paranormal because I have too many experiences to type out now, I believe that it all started when I was 8 and got a massive concussion, It’s been years & years of unexplainable things to no end, I’ve never been afraid anywhere except one house because it wasn’t a good place & the ppl who lived there long ago were bad ppl it held onto the energy like a sponge..

      8. I need help. I have dreamed about a little girl in a white night gown with long black hair playing a little wooden piano. I swear ive heard it in my attic. 2 weeks ago I seen her legs. Well her calves an feet behind my rocking chair. I double took an she was doing like a little shuffle with her feet. I got so faint i walked out on porch. Im really freaking out because i was going through my gallery an somehow snapped a pic of her. It looks like 3 little girls looking up at a man with a long beard an horns. Ive been really hateful an mean since. Like im filled with alot of hatred an i don’t know why. I need advice.

      9. Can you tell me how to stop these negative spirits from tormenting me and my family.

    2. Youre not off your rocker laura, actually I think your story is cute, its a sign that your husband takes care of you wherever he is at and he will always do, Im really touched by the part where you said that one time you did open youtube and you were led to the song hello its me by todd rundgren by your deceased husband, I like that cute song Ive heard it many times. My best wishes for you laura.

      1. help i saw another man last night. i had a creepy smile i did not know him AT ALL I AM TO YOUNG TO SEE TO SEE THINGS!!!! TO YOUNG TO DIE

    3. I’m sorry for ur husband but is time for him to go to the light, the best thing to do is put white flowers in a clear vase one glass of water in clear glass 3 white candles. Light candles said his name 3 times call his angels and explain to him that is time to go to the light that u and ur family will be ok send him to the light with love.
      Ur husband stay because he is worry about u and the family and he is not in peace. But is time to go to the light

    4. I understand if you feel better by feeling those things about your late husband, but you need to let him know that you are ok, and will be ok until you see each other again in the next life, because spirits that do not cross over/ meaning stay here in this realm , over time they become angry, then they start to take out their aggression on things that remind them of their old life, the next thing you know, you got a full fledged problem on your hands. So please don’t take this wrong, but instead of allowing him to comfort you, you have to be strong enough to tell him to go, cross over before he regrets it, because you will too.

      1. Christina, you need to get out of that house ASAP. And call a priest to tell them exactly what you saw.

    1. I myself is experiencing some strange paranormal activities it started when I notice the numbers 666 on a person’s address and on a car tag and 2 more things then a patient came for blood work and he called out my full name and ask was it me I replied he said the spirit told him to ask me I’ve been experiencing strange activities in my home and one nite I was backing out of my drive way I almost didn’t see this truck flying down the street I came to a quick stop my inside lights went to flashing as if something was warning me not to back out

    2. Me, why are you not a skeptic anymore?
      I am a Christian and I believe in the Holy Spirit, and in angels and in evil spirits. However, I don’t believe in ghosts in the way that many people assume they are former living people who now roam the earth. I know the Holy Spirit won’t play games, nor will angels. They have a serious job to do when they appear. And evil spirits are just that – – -evil. They aren’t going to be playful. But what is happening at our new (well…new to us) house which is only about 26 years old is not evil, but just weird. I am trying to explain them all as having a logical explanation somehow, but we haven’t figured it out yet. Here are just a few because I didn’t write them down and don’t remember them all anymore:
      1. I was in the bathtub soaking and my husband playfully turned the light off on me – -something he often does to make me say something like, “turn it back on.” Well, he turned it off, but I had an additional light on in the room already, so I didn’t say anything as I didn’t need the light anyway. He left and went to the living room to watch TV. About 5 minutes later, the light came back on. But the door was shut. So, I wondered how he did that. When I got out and asked him, he said he didn’t do it.
      2. My brother was looking on the floor under the kitchen table, so I asked him what he was looking for so I could help. He said it was the cap to his water bottle. I swept the floor and it wasn’t there. I wiped down the table and it wasn’t there. Oh well. No biggie. But the next day, it was sitting right there in plain sight on the kitchen table.
      3. My 90-year-old mother asked who the woman in the red dress was at our house. There was no woman in a red dress. She never jokes around. We don’t know what to make of that one.
      4. One of our cereal bowls is now missing and no one knows what could have happened to it. We never eat anywhere in the house except in the kitchen. We don’t take dishes outside the house. Not sure about this one.
      5. We have heard noises in other rooms, but then after checking, no one is there. My brother heard me cough and went to see why I wasn’t at work, but I WAS at work.
      6. I have a Keurig with a carousel for K-pods. I keep it stocked with a variety of flavors and all mixed up. I found it organized with each flavor in line all facing forward. I asked who did that, not that I cared, but just curious. No one did it.

      All just stupid stuff that doesn’t really mean anything, and can probably be explained somehow if I had a hidden camera, but I don’t. But we all keep saying now that the “ghost” did it. Ha!!! I am still a skeptic, so I am wondering what made YOU decide not to be a skeptic anymore. It takes a lot to convince me. Ha.

  4. My fiance’s grandfather passed away in our living room a year and a half before I moved it. At random times throughout the day we will just hear someone walking upstairs (when no one is home) or feel like someone is near by (when it is only us). Real creepy!

  5. Hey, can I ask where exactly in Belfast you live(d)? I live in Belfast and I found this website via searching “feeling watched while alone”. Just thought it was kind of creepy that I happen to look down this website and coincidentally find a person writing about the town where I live. :)

    1. Off Antrim road, between Malone road and Lisburn road, and off Ormeau road twice. In partially reverse order, since I have been moving a bit back and forth in town at my different periods.

      I may return someday….

  6. I feel like my house is haunted i feel like someone is watching me and a guy died in my house I always hear scratching on my door and i don’t have a cat or dog and the lights in my kitchen always turn on and off by there self and i always get scratches on me they come in three’s and they burn bad and i always see this dark figure in my room and i always have night terrors about people i don’t know and a box of cereal flew off my fridge and then a big light bulb fell on my head and i passed out and then i always hear somebody whispering my name

    1. Me too i experienced the same feeling as well but what i experience was more severe than you encountered and two people died in my house before we moved there

    2. i feel like some one is there in my basement i saw i guy i don,t know he wore a plaid shirt i don,t know who he was but i saw him i looked nice. i saw his arm he looked young but adult young.i did not know him i did not who he was why he was here but he was real i wonder if he died there i have posts in my basement i saw him there.

  7. Omg my dads house and my moms are haunted and that’s pretty scary for a 10 year old

  8. my house is haunted because i set up a camera and my door was opening and
    closing and i saw a ghost

  9. I can’t sleep because every time I’m nearly asleep this really loud noise happens, but the rest of my family say that they never heard anything!! So…What do I do?
    Is it a ghost?
    Or am I going insane?

    1. That’s called exploding head syndrome. It’s a medical condition. Go to the doctor Asap.

  10. I think my house is haunted. I live with my mom, my brother, my sister and my dog. One night my mom was downstairs watching TV, and my sister was out. So it was just me, my brother and my dog in our room upstairs. We heard footsteps in the hallway and then a sound like a human hand was knocking and tracing circles on our door. My brother and I both heard it and it was as CLEAR AS DAY. I was sure it was my mom (even though she wouldn’t just stand there knocking on the door and not open it) but we asked her and she never came upstairs. The next morning I asked my brother, “Did you hear the ghost?” and he said something I was not expecting at all–“No, but I saw it.” Apparently he saw it run past at the top of the stairs! According to him it looks like a shadow with nothing to cast it, about 5’4″, very humanlike. I think my brother may be “gifted” in this manner as he told me he’s seen it a couple times. I felt like I was being watched one dark night–seriously, I felt like something was standing RIGHT THERE on the other side of the room. I was afraid to even look because I thought I would see an apparition. I finally looked and didn’t see anything, and I felt it go away once my brother came upstairs. I mentioned it to him the next morning and he said he saw it bending over my bed and watching me! I asked him if it was the same figure he saw at the top of the stairs, and he said yes. We have also had instances with the “borrowers” phenomenon. I left my glasses on my bed and could only find one of the lenses. Then the next day I found them attached to my bathrobe by one of the strings–I DEFINITELY would’ve noticed that before! But now it has apparently taken the lens again. It has also moved objects. I noticed that a random pillow had been placed on my bed, and I asked my mom and my brother about it and they didn’t know what I was talking about. My dog has also been watching the very same corner of the room that I sensed a presence in the other night. My brother says he has seen her doing it often. Last night she absolutely REFUSED to come in the house after her walk. My mom’s radio has once turned on by itself. I am wondering if there is truly a ghost in our house, and if so what to do about it.
    P.S. My sister also reports seeing a woman in a dress in the living room once, and I once heard something walking around downstairs in the night. I know it wasn’t my dog, because she was with us, and her ears pricked up at the sound.

  11. I always feel sad and sorrow in my new house and I always here like scratching on my walls and stuff

  12. You forgot to mention strange smells and temperature changes. Usually very cold spots and smells could be anything from roses, to sulfur, or cigarette smoke. I’ve been ‘a sensitive’ my entire life and I’ve encountered many a spooky haunted houses. Including my current house which has a history of suicide, depression and cancer within its walls. I’ve tried every house clearing/blessing I can think of and Its still totally haunted. Footsteps, hissing sounds, foul smells, things disappearing and then turning up exactly where they were thought to be in the first place, night terrors and that icky feeling of being watched and followed by something that isn’t friendly. Anyone on here know of a full proof house clearing? I’ve spread salt around (and even burned some salt) sage, rosemary, sweet grass, cedar, bay leaves, buried crystals, called in angelic protectors, etc. Any suggestions?

  13. You forgot to mention strange smells and cold temperature changes. I’ve been ‘a sensitive’ my entire life and the house I currently live in in very haunted. It has a history of suicide, depression and cancer within its walls and I’ve tried every clearing/blessing I can think of from spreading and even burning salt, sage, sweetgrass, cedar, rosemary, bay leaves, placing crystals, ringing bells, calling on guardians, the works and its still totally haunted. Footsteps, hissing noises, foul smells, lights blowing out, things disappearing, night terrors and that menacing feeling of being watched and followed by an unseen entity. I’m exhausted. Any other suggestions out there? I’m thinking my next option is to move…

    1. you need to tell the spirits that this is your house and you want them to leave. Let them know that you appreciate them Watching over it all this Time, but it no longer belongs to them and they need to leave.

      1. I wouldn’t do that. If it is a vengeful spirit, or Poltergeist, it could make things exponentially worse.

  14. I used to live in a house where a murder suicide happened. While I live there I experienced rogue shadows, abnormal electrical disturbances, a piano playing behind the out-going message on my answering machine – there was no music playing when I recorded it and several other strange things. The house eventually burned and I sold the property and moved.

  15. I saw an adult size dark grey person “walk” past me upstairs. It was looking straight ahead and did not look at me. It’s form did not move up and down as if walking, but remained at one level as if floating; but still I heard two loud and clear footsteps (like solid heeled shoes) as it walked out of the babies room (which is carpeted) into the hall (which has wood floors.) Thinking back, It would seem that the real floors should not matter, so I was surprised by this “real” physical sound at that precise time it moved from carpet to wood. I could not make out any distinguishing features or clothes as it was “covered” in a dark grey shadow. But it was clearly an adult between 5’8-5’10, and seemed like a fully dressed male shape based on its bulk. I did not get the feeling it cared about my concerns. I felt that it was comfortable and took its presence there for granted. It seemed “determined”, or maybe confident. I don’t think it plans on leaving. I did not get a hostile feeling from it, but I am concerned about the three children. I asked it to leave and I felt a huge swirl of energy fly up to the attic. Any ideas on how to make sure the kids are safe would be appreciated. There has been very loud banging on the wood floors while everyone is asleep, and some toys turning on and playing music.

    1. Have you smudged your house with sage? Burn some sage in every room of the house with the windows open. At the same time hold a crucifix and demand the spirit leave the house upon the authority of Jesus Christ. Out a crucifix up in your children’s room. Call upon Archangel Michael to protect your children. The spirit could be totally benign, even protective but I would not want spirits around my children.

      1. Doesn’t that only work if you truly believe in God/Jesus Christ? I don’t think it will work for those who don’t have a true connection to such beliefs and most likely should be performed by an experienced demonologist/exorcist.

  16. Its funny how the person wrote this thinks they know everything about spirit ts anyways. Try being possessed not knowing you were. My mom said Icrawled up the walls like the girl in eexorcism the movie. Which I am wyf…

    1. I don’t believe I’ve ever claimed to know everything about anything. Or anything about anything, for that matter. I just write about what interests me.

      Although, feel free to correct me if I ever get anything wrong.

      1. It interested me that is why I am here, and what you shared about is totally true and correct facts. Great article, thank you.

  17. I need to share what happened yesterday when an agent showed one of my listings. When she first got in the house the realtor and the couple all started going through the the home. When they went into a guest bedroom the realtor out of the corner of her eye saw a man dressed in darker pants and a shirt went into another room. She did a double take cause she thought it was her clients husband. But when she turned around he was in front of the wife. Then they walked on through and said they were ready to go did not like the way the house felt …I am the listing agent. I called the agent that showed it the next morning and was trying to get some feedback. She told me what happened. I said hmmm. No one has told me that before. But she was the 3 Rd showing and the other two agents never phoned me back about their showings. Then I received a phone call from a friend of the lady whose house is listed. She said Ms ….. Called me and said last night(after the showing) she was at home and thought she saw a man walking around in her house… She said I just went to bed … I knew it was my mind … When I was in bed I felt a man in bed beside me and then he got up and walked away. Her friend said Ms…. Yeah u just has a bad day… She lives alone and is older and misses her deceased husband… Then I explained what the showing agent experienced the same day… SOUNDS LIKE MY LISTING IS HAUNTED.. I NEVER ASKED MY CLIENT IF HER HUSBAND DIED IN THE HOUSE AND WHERE HE WORKED .. might explain what he looked like.. Oh and she was saying he had on dark blue pants and a dark blue shirt! THATS EXACTLY WHAT THE SHOWING AGENT SAID.

  18. My lady and I stayed at the Geiser Grand Hotel in Baker City, OR three nights. Each night she has woken up confused, one night she thought I was filming us for a friend, another night she didnt know where she was and thought I was a danger to her and the other night she didnt know why we were there. This doesnt happen at home. The room we stay in has the most activity….. Anybody have experience like this. Oh and I acted like an ass hole and said things that I should never say to a woman that I love…

  19. First of all, we know my house is haunted, we are sure. Many people have come into my house and said to us “Who’s Tony?”. There was a man, two owners ago, named Anthony M. who died in this house. Also my own brother died in this house 6 years ago. There is another spirit that I have witnessed myself, a young girl. I believe the young girl may not be enlightened. Anyways, another way of sorting out spirits from natural occurences, is the defiling of statues. We had a 1.5 ft tall statue of the Virgin Mary in our living room. About 2 months ago, both my mother and myself had terrible nightmares; of what, we don’t remember. We only remember the terrible feeling when we awoke. That morning, we came downstairs and the statue was cracked in the middle, starting at the bottom and going halfway up the length of the statue. Both hands were broken off, right at the wrists. We disposed of the statue and will not be replacing it. I do believe it was the work of a malicious spirit.

  20. Well i have one problem right now but i dont know if i am hunted or not. The thing is that every night one girl come to my dream and stop them. When she come my dream disapear and everything become dark, and then i see her forword of me. She starts talking about something but i dont know what is she talking because i cant hear her. And whan she starts talking to me like that she open her eyes and keep staring at me. And when se finished that she again close her eyes and disapear. Than my dream continues exactly when stoped. That is happening for about 1 month and i dont know what to do so guys if you know something about that let me know because i am staring to fell scared. And sorry about my writing cuz i dont know engleash very good. :(

  21. I am unsure what to make of all this. I am going to start with me I fell asleep one night and awakened to to what felt like part of my body was lifted up off the bed and shook very hard I felt like l had just been violated but nothing was there. I blamed it on my MS not knowing for sure. My child is 5yrs old says that there’s a man outside our windows and is in fear I check and there’s nothing. One night coming into the house my child standing at the door inviting something that we couldn’t see in, child is awakened by noises and ask do we hear them we hear nothing, screaming out loud ba dreams. Just this morning I was awakened by my 5 yr old child saying someone threw paper while they were on a pad in the living room. My child comes up with bazaar stories about violence and when mad atnother siblings how and what they are going to do to them in a violently way and very detailed about it. At the catholic school were my child recently attended wasmproblems with their very bad behavior. I am considering having my child evaluated. Can someone please help.

  22. I went to bed last night and my dog was freaking out around midnight. I rolled over and there was a man standing by my front door it was dark but I could see him and he had the creepiest smile on his face. I jumped up turned the light on and he was gone. I saged my whole house last night but still felt uneasy. Maybe because I was scared? I was so scared it made me cry

  23. My house is only about twenty years old but I know I’m never alone. The window right next to my bed makes tapping noises, I always feel like I’m being watched, I see things out of the corner of my eye, I hear footsteps when I’m home alone and more.

    I’m thinking it might not be something dead like I ghost, not necessarily something bad, but more like a parallel universe type thing you know? But I’m not an expert.

  24. I have now had two blacklights go out in the same room. The first one completely fizzled out, and the second one, the bulb went out. And I had only had them for about a month! My mom was very ill with dementia in that room for 3 months. Coincidence? I think not. I just think it is residual energy left in the room by the illness, but it is strong enough to make the lights go out. Mom never did like blacklights. I also hear noises in that room like she is putting something back down on her night table. I just heard that noise not long ago.

  25. I live in my great-grandfather’s house. Many different noises, such as singing in the middle of the night and my grandfather ‘s chair rocking on porch. Shadows abound in certain ares of house.

  28. my friend’s house is haunted, after reading this it just confirms my theory.
    i’ve always been skeptical when it comes to the paranormal but after seeing the following events i completely believe now.
    1. bathroom door slammed shut and there was no one in there
    2. the cat hissed and scratched at something invisible before cowering under the couch
    3. his keyboard fell onto the floor from the middle of the desk as if it was pushed or slid
    4. lights turning off randomly and the refrigerator opening
    5. crashing and banging in the basement when the cat was upstairs and he was gone
    6. items disappearing and reappearing in the same place several days later

    i definitely believe this is a haunting, or am i just crazy? thx

  31. Can someone help me understand somehow my creepy experience?
    I have had for a second time a creepy experience while I was half awake half sleep. First it happened to me like 3 years ago. I was in my bed, half awake, past midnight and I hear like two kittens growling and fighting each other. ”They” enter my left side of the body, from my ribs, they go up while growling and stop when they reach my shoulder. Then they stopped growling. Yesterday it happened again, but this time was like only one grown cat growling and entering my right side of the body, from my ribs again, it goes up to reach my right shoulder and this is where it stopped growling. Wth is this? The growls are so real and scary af. Its not just sleep paralyses. This is something else, even scarier. Forgive me for my bad english.

  32. Hi everyone, my names aindrea and i live in south africa. Im hoping someone can help because i am becoming quite frightened by the increase in activity in my cottage for the last couple of months since iv been trying to get rid of whatever is in there, also i have a 2 year old and this thing doeant seem to likewhen he sleeps over at his grand parents. There have always been unexplained incidences in my house ever since i can remember but it was never anything threatening but over the last 2 years it seems be becoming agfressive especially towards me and im not sure why? I would often see shadows and feel as if someone is watching me and hear things move in the next room. But about 3 months ago i told a friend of mine who was trying to help me get rid of this thing because it was hanging around my son alot. For example i would hear wispering at my sons crib and then he would wake up crying and i would see a small shadow move away from his crib. anyway. Since ive been trying to get rid of it ive been seeing it as clear as day for a brief second and it seems to be immitating ppl i know like my husband or my dad. I then asked my mom to go and get rid of it simply because my faith in a higher power isnt strong at all and hers is and while she was doing it i took my son to the main house and while she was inside my cottage doing watever she was doing i heard growling outside the door where we were sitting and then banging on my windows inside my cottage but qhen i asked my mom why she was banging on the windows she said there was no banging. Sorry this is so long but there have been alot of incidences that i feel need to be told. Also on a few occassions i would hear knocking on my front door or on my bath when im submerged in the water. Always in threes. Im reaching out now more than ever because it seems to enjoy tormenting me with things that only i can hear voices knocking and things moving and im seeing it clearer now. Recently i saw a man in black from the side of my eye pacing up and down the court yard and last night (it was dark in the room) i leaned in to kiss my hsuband who i saw but my husband came from a different direction and when i looked back to see who it was i was going to kiss it was gone. Also when something moved i would see a glint of light like a spark and i also have a video of what seems to be paranomal fog? Just before my mom falls over “nothing”. Like i said im in south africa and im not sure we have any kind of professional help out here but i was wondering if anyone can give me some advice? Please

  33. I really do want to see and experience the presence of ghost but never got one. Till date I have been in few places which are haunted as told by others but spending a night doesn’t make any difference to me. Currently my next room seem to be haunted as per the information of my owner plus my siblings and cousins could hear the foot steps in the middle and stuff like that. Worst of all while talking to my gf in imo(video call) my gf said she saw a girl and start arguing with me who is that girl?? Yet I never saw one or feel threatened or scared. Why is that I don’t feel or hear any of it????

  34. When I was younger, I moved from a haunted house and into another haunted house and then to another haunted house. I lived at the first from 3-5. I never heard sounds or saw anything, but my dad was attacked in the night by something. He woke up unable to breathe and had claw marks visibly appearing on his chest coming from no where. We moved from there and started a new life at a new house. I lived at the second house from age 6 to age 10. We didn’t know that the new house was haunted at first, but strange things happened randomly and after about 3 years, we were certain. There was also a roach infestation that was absolutely horrid. I wasn’t aware of paranormal things at my age at the time, but I would tell my mom if I saw something. At night, I would see hundreds of colorful spheres floating around in the dark (red, purple, blue, yellow, the whole 9 yards) and they just moved around, some slow, some fast. I didn’t pay it any attention. I kept telling mom about it, but she didn’t believe me. I would hear whispers and very loud shouts in the night and no one else would hear them. No one believed me. One night, I was sleeping on the couch and I could see into my mom’s room… A tall dark shadow with a top hat appeared next to my mom’s bed and bent over just staring at her. I was petrified and couldn’t move or speak. I just closed my eyes and stayed up the entire night just shaking with fear. When I opened my eyes again, it was gone. I was cold sweating, it was so bad. For over 5 hours. Then came the possessions. My mom was always nice and never spanked us, but all of that changed after that night the tall shadow was standing over my mom’s bed. She all of a sudden started beating my brother and I 3-4 times a week just for doing the smallest things. She got a hardened bamboo stick for that. There were some times where she would just apologize and apologize when we told her what she did, and she didn’t remember a thing. My mom’s friend came over to see the house and to see if she felt anything, and boy did she. She said she has never felt anything like that house and said we needed to leave immediately. The night she said that, whatever was there started to show it’s true colors. Mom started to cut herself when she was washing the dishes and had no memory of even doing the dishes. 4-5 inch gashes in her arm. Our cat would all of a sudden attack us and cut us very deep for no reason and then would run off scared. One night, my mom’s friend was in the bathroom and felt something come in there. She started talking to it and telling it to leave us alone and get out of this house. Saying hateful things after the next to it. After every sentence, it would knock the toilet paper off of the counter, mom’s friend picked it back up and it just kept on doing it. When she left the bathroom, the wall had a hole in it that wasn’t there before. We had a chifferobe that was pristine, but all of a sudden during the night, the wood paneling on the door was on the floor in strips. After several more occurrences, my mom decided that we had to get out of that house. We packed our stuff and left the week after she said that. After moving to another house, we were contacted by someone that lived on the street where we lived. She wanted to ask us about the house. She said that it was like nothing she ever felt and she was too scared to set foot in it. Above the doorstep, she pointed out, was a star. It flipped when she visited the house, but was right side up when we were living there. She then told us about a piece of furniture that we left behind. It was a big wooden chifferobe. She said that it was bent facing down (like the tall dark shadow) without the wood being split and that it was completely unnatural. We told her it was standing upright when we left, but it changed after we were gone. The lady that told us that couldn’t go further into the house, it was just too much she said. She asked how long we lived there and when we said 4 years, she freaked out. She had no idea on how we LIVED that long in that house. It was absolutely horrible and I would never want to experience it again. It turns out we had the chifferobe at the first house and the tall dark shadow? It might have been what caused damage to my dad. It was a very old piece of furniture that was passed down in my family. From age 10 to age 11, I was at the third house. There were only 3 occurrences at the third house. At night, at 12:05 am, someone knocked on the door on the first night we moved in. Our pets started growling and hissing at the door. No one was outside. The second night, at 12:05 am, someone knocked on the door again and again, our pets acted very strangely and no one was outside once again. The third night, the same exact thing happened. For some reason, it was raining on the first day and we decided to put a picture outside so it could be destroyed in the rain. The knocking stopped after that. My family and I have been very unfortunate with possessed houses and possessed items. The second house was the worst of all 3, but they were all very bad situations. To all who read this, let me know how you guys think of what my family and I went through. I’m also happy to say that we have not had anymore paranormal occurences.

  35. My Dad has been seeing ghost in his home for years …he saw and old woman wearing a black Vail standing over my mom as she sleeps and he has been seeing a very tall male ghost along with his two ladies playing around with a lightbulb on the wall and then the male ghost head floats in the bedroom doorway.My older brother was poked in the back real hard, he turned around he saw nothing.Dad saw a woman in a white blouse follow my younger brother from the bathroom to the bedroom last night. This has been going on for years.

  38. my brother and i have been experiencing really weird things on my family house on the night we been experiencing scratching and tapping on the wall my brother always sees a shadow on his door where him and my other brother live and see objects move on the kitchen we feel really weird when we go up the stairs at night and feel somebody is watching us please what is this.

  39. Help me please someone’s been opening and closing my windows I believe they’ve been in my apartment last week my boys saw and pointed out shadows underneath the bedroom door their terrified last night my bedroom
    Door swung open by itself. At first I thought it was a peeping tom I told my landlord he didn’t see any foot prints in the snow.
    This started 2 months ago it started with my place being unbelievably cold far cry from when we first moved in and people complaining it was to hot. Then my friends and I would hear foot steps outside I brushed it off as a peeping
    Tom. Then I started seeing shadows walking back and fourth my bedroom window. Then the sounds of knocking which my friends heard as well and managed to record. Very scary stuff. Even scarier the opening and closing of the windows which I managed to record Then i started seeing the Movement and hearing heavy breathing in my bedroom. I’d jump out of bed and turn on the lights absolutely nothing!. I started going back on my recordings and started finding 10sec 14sec videos of my children and I sleeping. My guy friend slept over with his son. First night he thought I was losing it second night he runs to me room telling me to wake up someone was trying to open the window he walked up and down with a hammer all night we’ve never seen the person. Which makes it hard to talk about how do you call the police with no face. Nothing missing just videos of strange shadows noise and breathing. They’ve never stolen anything or hurt me. I felt it touch my finger last week. Cold disgusting chilly evil dead. I know it’s hearing watching us right now. I’m a 4th year med student never had a mental illness live a healthy life popular in my community popular growing up cheerleader lacrosse player travelled the world Upper middle class upbringing . I feel like my life is over why is this happening to me. I want it to stop.

  40. I think my house is haunted. I’ve heard a rumor that a family burned to death in the house, and when I was little, I often used to see things and feel like I was being touched. I have a distinct memory, when I was about eight or nine years old, and I was playing with my dolls on the floor, and it felt like a hand grabbed my legs and just held onto me for a long time. I always feel like I’m being watched, whether I’m alone or not. My mother and I have both experienced a voice that sounds like ours calling the other person (ex: my mother will hear my voice saying “Mom!” but when she answers, there isn’t a response, and then she’ll come to investigate and I’ll be asleep or never called her in the first place; I’ll hear my mom say “Come here,” and when I come, she’s not even there or she’s asleep. When I’m home alone, I always hear strange things going on in a part of the house opposite of me (if I’m downstairs, the happenings are upstairs; if I’m upstairs, the happenings are downstairs). My mother says that when she’s here by herself, she hears people coming in and out of the house, but she knows that she’s the only one inside. Being that where we live, the entire city is pretty much an Indian burial ground, so that terrifies me. Also, at this very moment, I’m hearing something upstairs like it’s going from room to room, just opening doors, and it sounds like it may be coming down the stairs, but when I stop to listen, it goes back up and a door will open and close again. I’m probably just being paranoid but I’m certain that’s what I’m hearing (paranoia or not).

  41. Everynight for the past 3 years I’ve been having evil dreams. Could a demon attach itself too me? I usually wake up from an evil dream with my heart racing or I could be sweating really bad. I saw what it looks a demon coming out of my bathroom years ago could that still be the problem?

  42. Hi am Clare we think are home is hunted we’ve had the the priest out 3times just whant some tips. On how to deal with what ever is in are home

  43. When I am home alone while my family is out, in our apartment, I have used an online recorder, that picks up noises I do not hear without the recording. Sometimes it sounds like a faint door closing, or like if someone drops something and a faint ‘thud’ sound can be heard. O_O Some say maybe it is sounds from the neighbors because it is an apartment, but I KNOW, the difference in the sounds, and these walls, you cannot hear anything through them.
    I don’t doubt spirits/entities at all-I have had more than one occurrence with odd things happening.

  44. Yes I lived in a house that had a lot of strange things going on. It started when I was about 5 years of age footsteps all night up and down stairs loud crashing noises banging on walls. My nan was physically bumped into on the stairs. Things used to go missing and then reappear weeks later. My brother experienced the bath water moving as if somebody got in it. The toilet would flush itself . I felt somebody sit on my bed most nights my mom also felt this. So much more to write about but could go on for a very long time so will leave it there .

  45. Currently in a strange events time, moved into a finished basement was only told it was setup as one bedroom with nursery, looked liked ,been, 5 months, got custody of teenage daughter this past month, let her take regular size bedroom, I moved twin bex dresser &tv into nursery just sleeping room. First events b4 she moved in was my border collie watching something by celling corners at times and too move nervous away from a comfortable spots. Since then the dryer repair man and I experienced sounds from baby rattle in next room both knowing we’re only ones in house and upstairs is vacant. Last week dog and daughter hear knocking (4 regular ) from same door leading to area of unfinished basement. Tonight friends of daughter stop by b4 we got home to mention that baby crying sounds coming from inside of home while at door knocking, That friend has no clue of the dealing were having. Gonna try to do a search of any events that may may been reported here. I HATE MOVING &

  46. My friends house is having strange things happening like her outer shed light keeps turning on by itself also the bedroom light in her sons room was on earlier and when returned it was off her small dog acting strange in the kitchen as thou someone there seeing shadows when sitting in the living room etc what foes this mean also hearing footsteps from her bedroom

  47. A late-friend of mine lived in a very old house, which had at one time been an Inn – that was at the time of Oliver Cromwell and the Roundheads.
    She often saw people in period dress walking around her Drawing Room. Her cat ‘Hattie’ would also sense their presence and would arch her back and start hissing.
    The house was at England’s gateway to the West Country, well known for its dense leylines.
    Visiting my friend over many years I became accustomed to the ghost stories, although still not being quite believing in what I was told. Until the day I went on an errand for my friend. As it was a warm day, I decided to walk to the village to collect an item of shopping. It was on my way back and nearing the house, that I saw a sailor in old fashioned naval uniform standing at the front door. As I neared, the sailor entered the house.
    When I arrived, expecting to meet my friend’s guest I found that she was alone in the house. I mentioned the sailor.
    “The fabric of time,” she explained, “It sometimes parts – like a curtain – and allows us to see into the past.”
    My friend passed away a little over two-years ago, but she often comes to visit me; manifesting herself as sunbeams flickering through the trees beyond the window; passing me messages on my poor health. I always feel better after one of her visits.

    1. That is a fascinating story. I think we would all like to hear more about how your friend contacts you & gives you messages.

  48. We believe our house is haunted. We have lived here over 12 years. At first we would smell cigar smoke and rose perfume every so often. Recently, there seems to be increased activity. At times our cat has hissed and hid at the same time our dog starts barking toward the living room. We have heard mysterious noises at time like something in our room falling on the dresser. At times you can feel like something sitting on the bed. Also, feelings of fear of something being in the bedroom with you at night. Now this morning we heard tapping on our bedroom door, almost like a knock but sounds like fingers. We thought at first it was our daughter but she was still in bed and our dog was asleep. Now that was spooky. Because, there was no explanation possible but a spirit. We also had things disappear and reappear or never see them again. My husband said a couple nights ago he saw a white speck of white light and sees it quite often.

    We will be moving to a new house. Is there a possibility that it will come along with us?

    1. Make sure to work out some kinds of living agreement, and let them know that you can hear them. It is your house as much as its theirs, but if they keep disturbing you, that is no good. It’s the same as living people…would you be scared of your neighbor next door, or would you tell them to keep their music down, or shut their dog up when it barks too much? No need to be scared, but annoyed, absolutely. Just let them know that they have passed, and that you are the new owners.

  49. Also, the knocking happened in the morning. It happened 2 – 3 times in a row. But, more than one knock at a time.

  50. I’m definetly living in a haunted house :'( I just wanna know if it’s good or evil.. I am almost positive evil and if so what do I do.. And omg I was shocked when reading this cuz I can relate to when I said an old house built on top of an acient burial ground :'( help me plzzzzz sincerly Sara <3. Email:

  51. I have lived in my rental home for three years.It is a old rancher that has additions attatched. My dog will not enter the newer part of the house without alot of encouragement and he cowers the whole time. He sits and whines and barks at the threshold to the stairs and will not go up alone we also have a cat that seems uninfected in any way. We have no mysterious movements or sounds,but my boyfriend has been scratched. In the last 3 months I have wakened in the night once was to a womans face inches from mine looking eye to eye with me…I squealed and she disappeared, a few days later I awoke and she was in the corner on the ceiling…I squealed she disappeared. A few weeks later I awoke and a tall thin man in aged clothes he was standing by my nite stand watching me it startled me so bad I shrieked and jumped to the other side of the bed when I looked back he was gone. two weeks ago I awoke again to a heavy bearded man bending over me and he disappeared after making me start. Just last nite I woke up to a young girl around 5 standing by my nite stand pulling on her own socks and doing a small twisting dance I stared at her and she vanished. All of these apparitions look like flesh and blood they are not ghoulish or wispy …but what do they want ..when I open my eyes to them its like finding a intruder waiting to kill you and its very unsettling,Am I going nutty?

    1. I think you need to move. It’s obvious a lot of people died in that house and maybe are trying to scare you off. You need to move away ASAP — they could get hostile at any moment. In the meanwhile, you can put salt on your windowsill and in front of windows and in front of doors on both sides. Don’t let anything mess up the salt. Be careful when dealing with this.

  52. I have had premermitions since being a child and have a presence that has always been there no matter were I’ve lived it seems to move from house to house with me I feel someone’s tapping me on my shoulder at times at night have a dark shadow that goes past my front room door I hear whispering at night have woken up to shadow standing over me I latley started decorating so was taking pictures of before decorated when suddenly flashing lights we’re all around me and there was a Smokey vapour with a peachy pinky glow coming from it it started to rise get larger brighter and come towards me I wasn’t scared just amazed at what had just witnessed and caught pictures of on my phone I’ve had envelopes fly off a shelf and come towards me have orbs in photos I do wonder what this all means and why all this occurs to me

  53. I heard three knocks on my door while playing my playstation, and my door swayed open so I know I wasn’t hearing things. I called out asking if it was my mom and the door got pulled closed and I heard like a childs footsteps run down the hall way. I checked the entire house and no one was home, all doors and windows were locked as well.

    1. Check out who in your, life at be attempting to grab your undivided attention. Small or large

    2. Okay, just to clarify; ghosts are NOT a good thing. It doesn’t matter if it’s a loved one, or a friend, they aren’t supposed to be here. Put salt on all the windowsills/in front of windows and in front of doors on each side. DO NOT let anything mess up the salt. This one doesn’t seem like a particularly hostile one, so I think you’ll be safe without calling a professional, however if anything else happens that might hint at hostile behaviour, surround yourself and any people living in the house with a circle of salt and call a professional to deal with it.

  54. my daughter and I have heard someone walking around, down the steps, up the steps, coughing, we have seen someone in the house, while we are here and know it is just us two. dark shadow people, but they do not harm us. vivid dreams, sometimes about demons, satan, I have had them talk to me, whispers, I have heard them talking, seen actual shadows and not see the person, I feel the feelings, like depression, sadness, anger…I had strange behavior between my daughter and my son, figured out that there was a demon in my basement and I made it leave my home. my animals act oddly, one night my dog started growling and backing up and watching something float down and then she started going forward and watching it disappear into the ceiling where it started from. we are Christians, just want to understand the people better.

  55. there was this house in my hometown where i kept having nightmares almost daily. and my dad said the place was haunted. it used to be a doctor’s office in the past.

  56. 5.15am i woke up in dark bedroom with black blind down. saw light for 3 mins on nr door in my bedroom i shout who are u 3 times went out change to 3 white steps right away i run nothing

  57. So i dont know where i fall in but i had experience something extraordinary, when i was a child i walked on my patio and saw a red cape moving towards the hall inside of the house. All i saw was the end of the cape and when i got inside the house i didnt see anything and the curtains were a totally different colour and all the way down the hall and wasnt long enough to reach the kitchen. Just recently i been a victim of sleep paralysis and before that happen the image of that same red cape came back to me and the paralysis started happening to me. Any suggestions as to what is happening to me?

  58. My name is Em I live in a 1 bd room apartment by myself. Ive had plenty of strange things happen here. Its something im not afraid of. Once ive heard a growl with my own ears while standing by my front door. Ive had knocking sounds papers shuffling. Ive felt someone watching me in my small hallway that goes to the bedroom and bathroom. When i lay on my couch at nite to go to sleep ive felt like someone was literly behind me watching me sleep and to me thats a very uneasy feeling because i feel my body is going into like a cant move kinda state ive had this happen plenty of times. When i feel something is wrong while im trying to fall asleep i tell it to stop and to go away and it does.

  59. So I live in a house and I live with my family (mom,dad,sister,brother,brother in law) and I had alot of stuff happen to me . When I used to live in my brothers room I had sleep paralysis every 2 weeks or so. And it felt like someone was on top of me making me not be able to breathe and I always seen shadows by my door . I moved rooms after that (my brother moved into that room)and this one time I was showering minding my own business lol and i was done and i went to leave and i unlocked the door and i couldn’t open the door like someone was holding the door and at the moment i thought it was my brother or someone so i didnt mind it and i started to brush my hair and i heard in my brothers room a little kid like running around in there and giggling after i started getting a little scared and when I went to open the door , the door knob started shaking kinda and I tried to open it again and it wouldnt open and I started saying this isn’t funny open the door . And after like a min it finally opened and i looked in my brothers room and no one was in there and the light was off and i went downstairs after and i seen my brother was sleeping and hes a heavy sleeper . After that I was so scared and nothing happened after but a month or so went by and I was in my room on my phone and my door knob started shaking and I didnt mind it and then it stopped and it started going again like 2 mins later and i went and looked out my door and no one was there and i went and looked in my brothers room and he wasn’t in there so i went back into my room and I kept my eye on the door cause I was a lil scared and my door opened and I freaked out and closed it and it opened again and my cat was staring at the door like someone was there and no one was out of my room or even upstairs . After that my mom seen a little child shadow downstairs by our kitchen and when I went down there like 5 mins later it wasn’t there and she freaked out too. Scary stuff happens in my house !!!

    1. Okay, you seriously need to put salt in front of/on all the doors and windowsills. This ghost seems like a one that might be hostile or michevious. Stay safe, and if that doesn’t work, surround yourself and your family in a circle of salt and call a professional. You can never be too safe when a ghost is around.

  60. hi there i have a audio file to share with people who had the same experience

    last night i heard a heavy voice breathing at my window and i would like to know if some one ad the sane esperience as me

    email me

    1. Hey, you should probably put salt on the windows/windowsill and doors. You don’t need to if it’s not a hostile ghost, but most ghosts are hostile, so I would reccommend taking precautions. Stand in a circle of salt and call a professional – you might be in danger. Don’t leave the circle of salt AT ANY COST. Don’t break the circle, don’t even step one foot out of it.

  61. This apartment I live in is haunted for everything and my girlfriend knows about everything and laughs about it. She says I’m crazy and I’m tired of it.

  62. I have had a large plant in my lounge and it appears to have a large web around it. I went upto it put my hand through it but nothing happened. After several years my daughter who was only 17 years of age and studying every night had her dad put a lock on the inside of her bedroom door to keep us out. It turned out she was talking to the spirit of the guy who had died in our house. Only a couple of years later I had been on holiday with my husband and saw a guy taking photos of my house. I asked him in and it turned out he was the son of the spirit of the guy whom my daughter kept seeing. After this son of the spirit left my home with lots of info. My home became. My own no problems since. But I am a physic and always have been since the age of 6 years old

  63. i used to have a phone that would pause by itself when i was watching youtude is that paranormal

    2. Hey, you should probably put salt on the windows and doors. You don’t need to if it’s not a hostile ghost, but most ghosts are hostile, so I would reccommend taking precautions. Stand in a circle of salt and call a professional – you might be in danger. Don’t leave the circle of salt AT ANY COST. Don’t break the circle, don’t even step one foot out of it. You have no idea what you could be dealing with. Stay safe!

  69. i think my house is haunted i saw a ghost in my basement is had a plaid shirt i need help i hear foot step idk who it is. :3

  70. Listen, I really think you need to move. The ghost may not follow you since they haunt mostly one place at a time, and maybe you should stop using that bathroom if you’re not gonna move.

  71. I think my mom and sister are being controlled by my sisters deceased father who died in the house they live in. He was a mean person and my sister never got along with him since he died my sister sudddnly was afraid to drive her car or leave her house. Her dad was legally blind and did not drive. Recently she had a baby and my mom moved in with her. They have always been super close. There relationship has become almost abusive. I stopped over yesterday with some stuff for the baby and could not believe what I saw. My sister was down right rude she didn’t even look at the things I brought the baby and kept rolling her eyes behind my mom’s back something her father would have done. Suddenly as we were all standing outside my mom grabbed her stomach like she was being stabbed and fell to the ground I think she had a seizer. As she laid there nobody did anything they almost in a way were laughing at her I handed my sister the baby and my boyfriend and I ran to help my mom up. I brought my mom into the house and gave her some water she was clearly out of it and started growling at me I pour water into her mouth and she growled again then she went limp and was out cold. I looked at my mom and it was almost as if something had been inside her. I went back outside and my sister and her boyfriend said she did that for attention. I said she’s out cold! My mom was out. My sister had a look of evil in her eyes I have never seen before. I called my mom about an hour later and she acted like she was fine. She said she was just tired and her leg gave out she said. I am so worried I want my mom out of that house I want them all out but I don’t know how to get them to listen. Help me!

    1. It sounds like your mother is possessed by a demon, and your sister is probably possessed too. If that’s what you’re dealing with, there is power in the name of Jesus.

    2. Pray to God for your mother. Read the Bible to your mother. Most importantly, command the demon to come out of her in the name of Jesus. The Bible says Jesus gave us the authority to cast demons out of people, but sometimes fasting and prayer is required.

    3. I don’t know why I said prayer is required sometimes. Only fasting is required sometimes.

    4. Proceed with caution. In the King James Bible, Mathew 43-45 states…

      When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

      Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

      Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

  72. i think he was abusing your family because he got abused as a child maybe he did not know who is was or just on purpose

  73. Been experiencing shadow guy at night and when I wake and put lights on or says Satan is defeated he disappears..
    This started since I moved in a new house I wasn’t feeling well n I got worse 2 months later after moving in… It’s been one year and my health ain’t getting better.. What bothering and scares a lot is the fact it’s continuous now.. First day this happened I saw a guy standing behind my bed dressed in traditional outfit holding a yellow jelly can which was cut the upper part seemed heavy I dint see the face.. When I discussed with my friend she said someone is holding my blessings I should pray… Few weeks later was struggling in a dream trying to wake up to find a tall thin guy dressed in army uniform staring at me n I said satan is defeated its disappeared… Now it has become continuous and I see shadows inform of people, scary things in shadows at night if their is darkness.. Yesterday night I felt there was something wrong like sensed their presence feeling strange fear of something is withing I heard some strange movements voices I can’t understand if it’s normal but I can sense their presence and get so afraid.. At 10pm I struggled alot couldn’t sleep at all like I would close my eyes for 5mins wake up in fear cover myself.. I turned TV on n put low voice n slept around 3am i woked up to see almost size of a giant man closer to my bed standing staring at me I shouted devil is defeated in darkness its disappeared then turned on TV again n stayed awake till morning… My fear is I’m struggling with illness n seeing all this makes it worse and the fact that I sensed something is wrong those movements and it happened that scares me… My landlord brother died in accident few months ago n last year October my neighbour who once used to stay in my room then shifted to other died.. People say she used to get some powers in Tanzania to pray for pple all in all that is evil could she had done something evil and left this spirit in my room or it’s the spirit of other kind I can’t stop asking myself qtns.
    Would someone advice on how to deal with this situation..

    1. Consider anointing your home with oil, and remove all objects from your home that God hates.

  74. help!! i am seeing a face in my closet and its creepy does anyone know how to deal with it?


      Play it entirely when you have time. Have your glass of water ready and have faith/belief all that is harmful will go

  75. I have had several experiences with the paranormal and have pictures an I have audio as well. It’s has been going on for some time now and I believe they are wanting something from me. I have come close to death a few times and believe that each time a new sprit attaches it’s self to me.. make all the jokes you want but I have always known that I was different… I have several audio’s of them asking for help and I have heard them growl and just get ugly at times. I am always recording and video taping them.. Some of them are what I call tricksters they can mimick voices and I believe to be very evil! Others are just looking for answers to what has happened to them, an then there are the watchers. The ones who hide only in shadows and fallow the shadows, if the room is bright you can not see them. But turn off the lights and if you really listen you can hear them whisper. Just be careful and don’t invite them by using the,”Ouija board” I never have an couldn’t imagine how good that could be for someone like myself… Thank you and just turn the recorder on your phone you will be surprised at what you will here

    1. I’ve also experienced the same thing. I know you are telling the truth. I understand. That is why I pray so much. The spiritual world is real. It does get confusing knowing who, what, good, evil??? I stick with God/Jesus for protection.

  76. i saw a finger one night i poked out in between my dresser and door i think it was a child,s finger that’s what it looked like it was short like a finger of a child it was pointing to book shelf like it wanted me to get a book.

    1. Many years ago, when I was a kid, I was playing on my bedroom floor with my plastic army men. I saw a disembodied human hand reach out from under my bed & knock one of them over. It scared the heck out of me & I wonder about it to this day.

  77. can a prayer work i am catholic god can do anything like protect u. please say it can!?!?!?!?!??!?!

  78. I have a shadow of what looks like a little girl on my wall facing me that just appeared overnight. When I woke up it was there and I wake up when it’s still dark outside. It won’t go away. There is nothing in the room to take it’s shape. Is that a good omen or a bad one? I know this question doesn’t really relate to the topic but, every time I search it on Google I get shadow people, song lyrics, children stories or poetry. Please help.

  79. I’m experiencing someone or something climbing on the roof of my trailer (it shakes the trailer like the weight of a grown man). Other things have happened as well, for example I heard tapping on the outside like a stick from one side to the other. Every time I go outside to look no one and nothing are there.
    Any suggestions?

    1. Neighbours’ cat ? Our boss-cat would leap from party-wall to neighbour’s garage, then onto roof of their panel van, lie in wait for passing rats…
      Or big sea-birds ? They made a remarkable fuss on the roof of our rented ‘static trailer’ in Scotland. And, given they gotta launch up-wind, their pounding feet as they gained speed on the trailer’s thin, drum-like roof was amplified.

  80. Not a single sign in 10 are presence at my house because we are follower of Maula Ali shere Khoda and Panjatan Paak, we are related Shohdaye KARBALA{ Iraq} . Besides we pray 5th time Namaaz {Pray of God} so nothing is possible, in addition to Imam Bargah also in my house zarre Imam Husain a.s. are present 24 hour and pray room for Namaaz and Nazar Fatiha on the Occasion of time to time available. We are under shadow of Panjatan Paak so we are much safe. Thanks,

  81. CJ, it has been a long time since your post. Are you still helping people with this??

  82. I happened to go to a few of my friends house, and for sum reason in each one I heard ppl talking low then i realized it was the refridgerator. But nobody else noticed it. why am I hearing it or noticing it? Then I come home and my ice box makes a strange sound almost like ppl talking.

  83. I hear what sounds like someone’s being dragged through the house at night also clapping .

  84. I used to live in a 20 year old house, I moved there around the the Fifth of November 2016.. I lived there for about a month and enjoyed it until the night of December 8th.. That night I woke up sweating and frightened of the dream I had just had.. Only to realize I hadn’t dreamed at all.. It was 10:32 at night.. At the time I did not believe in spirits or anything of the sort, I went back to sleep.. The memory of what happened next that night was truly horrifying. I found myself getting up out of bed not knowing why, As I walked to the kitchen I noticed something odd about the house, I could see in color but it was as if someone had placed tint over the house that made the colors appear faded.. I walked to the kitchen and as I entered the doorway I noticed a man leaning against the counter staring blankly at me. His mouth opened and he said the words “Hello David” shocked I replied who are you, what are you doing in my house, and how do you know me? The man said “I’m Chris”.. I heard this terrible noise the sound of a running car horn, it boarded and blurred.. The car was halfway through the kitchen with Chris just in front of it lying on the floor, blood streaming from his head and onto the wood… I was left standing alone in the middle of the kitchen, everything was normal.. There was no man named Chris to be seen, but I felt this presence watching me from behind I turned around only to see a figure move past the kitchen doorway.. I ran to the door the investigate but nothing was there, only blackened darkness, there was something very odd, I felt the urge to just leave and so I did.. I got in my car and left don’t know why I wound up in the local library, I was on the computer searching up my address.. One result popped up.. An old house, my house.. I read through the history.. get this, “homeowner killed by drunk driver”. It showed an image of a car exploded through a kitchen of a house, my house.. his name was Christopher Reede and was killed by a drunk driver who was speeding down the street lost control of the car and drove straight through the front of the house on the night of December 8th at 10:33 pm.. I left that house after many months of the same painful memory each night.. I now believe in the paranormal..

  85. We’re buying a home that was built in the 50’s.. I had a strange visit from a young female that was married and so many other occasions .. She proceeds by telling me about a tragedy that occurred in our 3 story house. A make killed another male by brutally stabbing him to death in the stairwell .. I’ve heard footsteps for years but recently , I heard footsteps that lead me to an open door upstairs.. We’re still trying to figure out who unlocked the door only the chain was holding the door closed.. I don’t feel a bad spirit and I do practice for a home invasion.. definitely.. Something is wrong.. in my house..and We love it. But..I’m haunted with fear at times.

  86. In the early hours of the night that my husband passed away , I was woken with the sound of banging or drum like sounds going throughout my house . He was in Thailand and I was in the UK . Within the hour of this happening I was again woken with the telephone ringing and a person telling me that my husband had just passed away. My mother who was in her 80s at the time and lived about 4 miles from my house was also woken with the same drum/banging sound at the same time .

  87. help idk whats wrong with my house but i night i start hearing foot steps over and over what do i do?

  88. and i feel like being watched while i sleep my brother says he SAW SLENDER MAN!! help me 😥😥😥

  89. I remember growing up seeing the neighbour’s chicken jump in through the back door as usual as i was about to shew it it looked under the bed with fear in its eyes and tuned around and jumped through the back door. I then looked under the bed to see if i could see what had frightened her but i saw nothing.
    When i was much younger about 7 or 8 i was sent down the hill to the shop. On my way back skipping happily i reached a popular bamboo tree that was said to be haunted. I immediately heard doz of voices all at once but most of them sounded familiar like voices of my family members who are very much alive. I got home n told my mom & my aunty n grandma the ignored me n continued on their conversations. I heard the voices for 3 days straight then it stopped.
    I was a happy child so i dont know what could have caused it😕

  90. This morning I was having browsing thru my I-pad whilst laying in bed, my wife had left the bedroom 20 minutes or so earlier, I looked up at the bedroom door which was ajar when i heard a slight noise and saw someone or something glide past the crack of the door I shouted out instantly , ” Linda is that you?”, no reply – it turned out that Linda , my wife was down stairs in the kitchen ?? So it could not have been her!!

  91. hey ghostyL, i think they were good ghosts bc they probably needed some one to talk to after all these years.

  92. Well this is my story I hope anybody can shed some light on the subject.

    About a month ago My mother was gone out for 4 days visiting with a friend of the family over at there house which is in a another city and my sister and her boyfriend and there kids took off to Nova Scotia in that same week. Now I was alone in the house for those 4 days until my mother got back, but what happened the 2nd day I won’t soon forget. It was around 9:10 PM and I had just put on the TV on the android box Id put on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Cartoon from 80’s) just for the fun of it then I was getting hungry so I figured its time to cook some dinner I went into the kitchen and was standing almost in the middle of the room staring at the clock pondering what should I cook for dinner. All of a sudden I hear loud banging or stomping noises sounded like someone running from a bedroom and down the hallway and into the kitchen and it went right behind me where I was standing. Now to me what it sounded like is one of the kids when they run through the hallways when they are playing except Im alone and keep in mind the cartoon on the TV was playing while all this was happening. It sounded small at first and got louder and louder as it got closer to me then stopped as soon as the banging went behind me. While I was standing listening to this in amazement I turned my head to the kitchen archway and stared at the hallway, maybe I could get a glymps at something if it was what I thought it was? I also looked around and behind me after the noise stopped only to see nothing. We have two dogs and one was on the couch lying down with her eyes open and the other in her bed on the floor as well, neither of the dogs responded like they usually do by barking which really surprised me. I did eventually man up seconds after the noise but I gotta say this made my stomach fall and gave me the goosebumps. I did investigate outside and everything was normal nothing suspicious but even then Im not convinced that people or kids running on are boards walkways can make that much of loud vibrating banging sound within the house that strong from outside, had someone been there the dogs would have detected it. It left me wondering – Did I just experience a paranormal event? We are located up north in Canada by the way where there is a lot of history with the native land.

  93. Were you doing laundry at the time? An unbalanced load can make an amazing amount of noise that sounds the same as what you describe.

    1. Nope I was not doing any laundry at the time. I really know what you are talking about with the laundry how it could produce that noise but I have heard that before and it was nothing like that, I literally thought someone was in the house. There has been other strange stuff going on here and there throughout my home at random times, a little more minor than what I experienced the other people I live with has had weird things happen to them too but they were more passable and we did not freak out to the point where we have to move or any of those kind of feelings. My sister has several photos of small orbs floating throughout the house and also another photo of a red or orange glowing light shaped like almost like a person, that photo of my nephew was taken in are backyard while we were sitting around a fire. Now we looked at these things and try to analyse and debunk but its really no use unless we know forsure what we are dealing with here.

      1. You should look up the story of
        skin walker ranch in Utah. That may change your mind on how you feel about those orbs of light. I truly believe in 100% Full Disclosure. That way we will know what we are dealing with and can make an informed decision on what we should do next. And the story of Skin Walker Ranch will tell you a lot of things about a bunch of different/strange/weird stuff, but it also has those orbs of light too. And before you call BS on the story because of its name, like I did. I will tell you that after these poor ranchers story got out, they were on the brink of financial disaster because of the mutilations to their animals and all of the other crazy stuff that happened to them over the two years they were living there, this guy that was trying to start up an investigative company to scientifically study the paranormal activity, ufo reports, cow mutilations, orbs of light, and anything else that is not of this world/demetion. So he actually purchased the Ranch and then after him being there for another 2 or 3 years with his added stories, the government came in and now are looking into what is going on there.

  94. It depends on your age as to what it can mean. Most things that happen , generally are noticed because whatever is sending the message knows that it has to connect with you on a personal level, therefore age is a key factor. Ex. Would you send a message to someone that is 65 and reference a new song that is popular in the teenager crowd? That wouldn’t make sense. Now that you know that, rethink what you saw, maybe there were more clues that you overlooked?
