Have you ever seen a ghost or encountered anything spooky?

Perhaps you have a room in your house that never quite feels right. Do you hear bumps in the night or see shadows out of the corner of your eye? Are you a medium or clairvoyant who can communicate with the ‘other side’?

Candles would come alight in the middle of the night seemingly of their own accord, there were strange banging noises that we could never figure out and one day I came home to find the attic door open - an attic door that required a ladder to get to and none of us had been up there..... Reply

fay says: I had a similar experience staying at my parent's house once....I heard someone walking down the hall in the direction of the laundry but no one was there. The manhole cover into the roof space suddenly lifted up and flung off to one side !!!! I was terrified !!!! Still gives me goosebumps. The house has since been demolished and the land subdivided with three new houses built. I wonder if they have inherited the Ghost !!!! Reply

ferris says: If you want to be freaked out about strange spirits, go an a camping trip with some aboriginal elders and get them to tell you a few stories about spirits like Featherfoot and the lady in the moon. You will see and hear things that will scare the wits out of you. Did this on a Year 10 camp in the Pilbara in WA. 25 kids came back with a whole new appreciation of aboriginal culture and some amazing stories to tell. 25 kids all telling the same story and all seeing the same thing at the same time. Had to be there. Reply

As a rule I didn't ever buy casket tickets, but from then on I would buy a casket ticket once a week. I truly believed I would win, and I did after 6 weeks of buying tickets.

Karan13 says: my nonna passed over when i was 6 years old. a few days later we were at her house and she was sitting in her chair like usual so my brother and i went and sat either side of her like we always did

***************************************

i knew a very well known medium who passed over a few years ago. one night i arranged with the girls to have a night out the following night. my partner was at work so even he didnt know about it. the following moment my medium called me and said:

medium - youre going out tonight with friends?
me - yes. how did you know?
her - please dont get in the car. catch a taxi home
me - why?
her - just catch a taxi home

the following night i went out and had a great time. at the end of the night i remembered the warning and i caught a taxi home. the following morning i was woken up with a phonecall telling me that the driver was in intensive care, the front passenger (where i would have normally sat) had been killed instantly and the 2 rear passengers were seriously injured

*************************************************

i had been with my partner for 9 years. one night i was on msn chatting to a friend who is a psychic. she told me that by my birthday i would no longer be with my partner. i would find out a terrible secret that would shock me to the core. i would travel far but it wouldnt work out and i would come back home. things would be tough but i would get a windfall that would change my life

i laughed it off because i thought we were happy and that everything was ok

3 weeks before my birthday i found out that my partner had a gambling problem so i left him. i went to queensland where things fell out of bed and i went home 3 months later. i rented a unit and had nothing to put in it so i worked around the clock to get everything i needed for the unit

every payday i would go to the club and have the $5 coffee and cake deal while playing $5 worth of keno. this day i was walking towards the cashier to pay for my keno when a pokie machine caught my eye. i didnt usually play the pokies because of the problems with my ex but i put my $5 in the pokies instead of playing keno like usual. i was pressing the button when all of a sudden i heard music and i hoped that the winner of the jackpot was someone who needed the money. little did i know that it was ME who won the jackpot! a lady told me i had won the jackpot and congratulated me. when the attendant told me that it was almost $14,000 i literally fainted!

everything my psychic friend would happen, did happen Reply

Long ago my wife was in hospital recovering from a operation, I parked in the visitors car park and proceeded to the ward with my wifes mother.
while crossing the car park i said to barbie that elaine has a visitor. she looked and said yes, i wonder who it is. (now before you advise i mixed up the windows, i did not as we both worked at the hospital and knew every part of it.)
Any way we continued to the the ward and kissed Elaine and asked her was visiting her and has just left. Elaine advised we were the first visitors she had had that evening.
Elaine's Father had passed very unexpectedly only a few weeks earlier. to this day we cannot think of who else could have been watching over Her. Reply

I told my sister that there was a housae nearby even though I couldn't see it & I told her that there was a piano in that house. We asked Mum & Dad if we could go exploring & sure enough we came upon a house, the front door almost off it's hinges & once we pushed our way past the cobwebs and the partially open door, there was the piano. The room looked like the person had only gone for the day, but I will never forget the dated photos sitting on top of the piano nor my sudden need to get out of the place, as even as a young child I felt like I was intruding in someone's house. Still to this day, I wonder how I knew about the house & piano being there...I had never been to that location before in my life. Reply

bluehoney says: I have seen a few ghosts in my life. When I was living in carlton, aged around ten, I woke up feeling someone was looking at me, there was a young girl and I think her mother as well. I tried to scream but nothing came out. they then disappeared. Another time was I was looking for a house to rent, one of the houses I felt cold and scared, I ran out as fast as I could.
When I lived in brunswick east, the front room was always so cold. I always felt someone was looking at me. When I would have a shower I would say leave me alone please. One day I was walking up the stairs to go to my room and I saw a old women with long grey hair and a white lace dress come out of my daughters room going to my room. One night while I was asleep I heard a voice saying to me 'get up chantel (my daughter) is going to fall out of her bed'. I got up just in time. I described the old woman to my partner and he said it was the lady who died there, he new her. When we lived there my daughter had an imagintive friend. When we moved her never had one again. I was never scared of her.And when we moved out I said goodbye.
When I moved back home the first week when I was asleep I kept hearing my name called out. I would ask my mum if she called me but she never did.
I have seen two evil ghosts in my room and I told them two leave and never come back. They never have so far.
I could go on and on about what has happen to me. Reply

Yep as we drove further up there it was a park!!!! I have had a lot of moments like that since. I house we lived in had a bedroom that was freezing cold even in the summer.

I am a MEDICAL DOCTOR and thus a Science-oriented personality, which makes me conscious that what I am seeing/ hearing may be a delusion/ illusion/ hallucination. Thus many a time what I saw or what I heard as an abnormal or paranormal phenomenon was later reasoned as an impossibility and was explained by scientific delusion/ illusion/ hallucination mind-states.

On the night after his funeral (which I wasn't allowed to go to) I saw him at the foot of my bed standing looking over me (I loved Pop very much and was extremely upset) he calmly said "Don't worry, everthing will be all right!" and then disappeared. This is my only experience with ghosts and the funny thing was that at such a young age I wasn't scared at all and when I think of it now it makes me feel safe and reassured! Reply

I have seen a movement of a dark figure again in a house of a friend.. He saw something as well.. and also stayed at an isolated farmhouse. At night it became really cold in a room.. In the morning was told that a son of a previous owner had shot himself just outside the house. They continued to tell me that furniture had been moved and a flatmates room had been trashed whilst the house was unattened. Obviously the Ghost did not like that flatmate and neither did I.. - my nephew said when he was younger and staying at my house he saw a man on top of the stairs... I belive but dont obsess over it.

Palladin says: When I visited a friend in Palermo, Sicily where he was employed as an official, he dared me to spend a night inside the Chinese Villa which is a big tourist attraction and allegedly haunted by three long-suffering Mandarins who are headless.

This interesting residence was built for King Ferdinando I of the Two Sicilies during his sojourn in Palermo while his mainland capital, Naples, was occupied by French troops.

Another resident of the Chinese Villa was Ferdinando's son and heir, Francesco I, who lived here with his wife, Maria Isabella of Spain, who gave birth to the future Ferdinando II at Palermo in 1810.

Unable to resist a dare at the best of times I was made comfortable in one of the smaller bedrooms and given three battery-operated torches which all worked when I checked them.

As darkness turned to deep night in the Favorita Royal Park near the hamlet of Pallavicino (where the Chinese Villa stands), I began to hear footsteps running along the corridor. Thinking it was a joke I ignored it for three hours until in the end I simply had to go and investigatge.

I took a torch in each hand and opened the door into the corridor. Suddenly it was very cold but in the room it had been warm. I tried to turn on both torches but neither would oblige. I walked back into the room and they both worked -- I tried them in the corridor and none of the three worked.

The noise in the corridor continued until daybreak and then suddenly subsided.

I left gladly when my friend came to collect me for an early breakfast and this is the first time since 1986 that I have had the inclination to recall the experiences of that night in Palermo, Sicily.

''' which all goes to prove that in Palermo there is more than the Mafia that goes 'bump' in the night. Reply

We were all drifting off to sleep when we heard running feet coming towards us down the hallway and the next minute we heard the front door open and then slam shut.
To cut a long story short,my mother woke to 4 of us leaping into bed with her!!
It wasn't until about 10 years ago that I found out about the Burial Ground.
Now,the house has been pulled down and it is used as part of a building supply site.

Got to the top of the stairs and stepped through the door only to have the strongest feeling of being pushed out and back down the stairs. Legend has it the matron had died in their and Dad had kind of calmed the pushing feeling to be alllowed in to repair the window and do some painting, but there was no way I was allowed in - I tryed a couple of times with the same reaction. I can't say that I was scared, otherwise I would not have kept trying, but I was really intrigued and even tried talking to the whatever to see if that helped - No, she just didn't like women???

This was totally incredible for me to witness the whole event taking place within a split second in front of my eyes, so when I witnessed this all happen my reaction was to say " WOW" that was amazing & that it was . I have never seen anything as such before & as it happened my girlfriend also watched this happen as she was coming out of the laundry room to my right talking to me & she also had an energetic reaction of surprise such as I did. In summary of what we both amazingly witnessed we both took this paranormal activity to be a spirit trying to let us both know that we must always communicate with each other properly at all times. Hence I am 39 years old now & she is 40 years old & we have loved each other since the age of 20, However our relationship has not always shown the best of communication with each other up until now. So for both of us this spirit was obviously hurling her mobile phone up in the air because it was trying to give us both the message to better communicate with each other. P.s my partner & I have both always taken great interest in the spiritual world & she has clairvoyant & medium capabilities as do I myself ,we also have a very telepathic connection with each other & have seen other paranormal encounters together on different occasions.

3rd. When my oldest son was very little he used to tell me that there was an older lady and man who used to stand at his bedroom door and look at him. He'd hide under the sheets he was so scared. This happened many times.. One day i said to him that maybe it was his grandparents (we were living in their house and they never met him as they had died before he was born) so I suggested he introduce himself to them. The next time they came instead of hiding under his blankets he sat up and told them that he was my son and his name and how old he was.. They never came back..
4th. Same house as 3. My grandfather told my aunt that he could see my grandmother standing in his room. She smiled and said that's nice and went to get his breakfast. When she came back he had passed away. We still to this day think Grandma came for him. So of course this happened before no 3.

Eyes says: Yes, I do believe in the paranormal. My brother in law passed away nearly a year ago, and when the service began a ray of light shone through a skylight, just at the postion of his head. After the service while having coffee and a catch up with others, I looked out the window and very gently blossoms ever so gently just blew past the window, and yet looking further over the grounds there was no movement of the trees. Another person saw the same.

As a firm believer, I then had a reading done and was told, that he was present, and he had relayed to her that at his time of passing over, there were 2 people present and then a while after there was another 3. This was so correct and I had never met the woman before. If my sister is around, there are shadows. My sister had a reading done as well at another time, and again he was present and even told her how my sister had picked up a piece of paper in the driveway the week before and the way she walks home from work.

One night at about 3am a man came in with a gun to rob the store.
When he pointed the gun at me his hand was really shaking and I vividly remember thinking "shit this guy is going to shoot me and not even mean it." Then something strange happened.
Instead of looking at the robber and his gun pointing at me I was viewing the robbery from above and watching me giving the robber the pittance of money that was in the cash register at 3am.
Afterward I was told that what I recounted as my experience was common as an "out of body experience" when you are in dire danger. Spooky! Reply

Yes there is such things as ghosts and children can sometimes see things that others cant. I also believe there is demonic out there. My Great Grandmother was asthmatic like me, I always wanted a horse and loved to ride, turns out that when she was feeding the horses the horse blew feed back in her face she then suffered an asthma attack and died. I dont think he wanted me near the horses, He could speak to me as clear as if he was alive. I know he is still around, I have a picture of him in my lounge room in his uniform. Reply

Jimbo says: I lived in a house with srange happenings,our dog would sense a presence in our back yard,toys moved on thier own and our four year old son would have conversations in his room with a secret friend.But what took the cake was one night my wife and i went to bed,and we woke up to find a misty mould on our walls curtains dressing table.It is unexplainable how this could happen overnight.We were in the process of selling our house and it took a while to sell,maybe it was angry because we were leaving.Also they say a house with number 8 or adding up to 8 is more likely to have strange happenings.It turned out our house was 3+5=8 and the house behind and across the road were 8 aswell.The house behind us was a old house which once stood alone,and the jail also has been there for over 100 years.So i often wonder if an event took place on the land where our house was! I am a believer.Jimbo

Secondly, on the Princes Highway late at night, my husband and I were driving back from Wollongong followed by a motorbike. all of a sudden after rounding a bend, the bike disappeared from view. There are no side roads or trails there, as we had been travelling that road for 20 years. We were so concerned we turned around and went in search but there was no evidence of a bike or anything. To this day it is a mystery. Reply

Wynwood says: Many years ago I had an experience when I woke in the night and there was this huge black mass overhead coming straight down on top of me. I shot clean underneath my startled husband. We moved house shortly afterwards but for a number of years I would wake in the night and see a mass or sense something standing by the bedroom door. This started about 43 years ago and lasted for about 35 years. The ghost seemed to follow us each time we moved house. I have not seen it now for about 5 years so think it has finally left me. Reply

Hartmut says: Dear Rainbow,

Ghosts, or any other so-called supernatural events, could merely be quite normal, 'natural happenings' we simply do not (yet) understand. Although I have never seen a ghost....

...once while painting away I suddenly got sick and had to go to bed.
On the next day, as I was lying fully awake in the dark bedroom,
suddenly there appeared a huge spiral galaxy against a star studded
universe on the wall, right opposite my bed, just like on a big cinema
screen.
The stars were brilliant and in such amazing sharp focus that I could have
easily counted every one of them. The spiral revolved anti-clockwise very,
very slowly, majestically around its bright glowing center.
Then - rolling like a movie title from left to right, these strange golden
metallic looking writing / hieroglyphic symbols appeared. They just
hung there, floating over the Universe and the spiral galaxy like a delicate,
yet very big spaceship.

After about 3-5 minutes it all faded away. Reply

I called him for every horrible name imaginable, then I found out he was a very sick man & every single night since I pray & ask for his forgiveness. I was @ home last year about 2 months after his Death, & I am disabled & have a Carer, we were ready to watch a DVD, I went in the Kitchen to get a drink & when I came back in, the Movie was on but, my carer was staring @ the wall & he was grey, I said to him you know you have to watch the movie to know what's going on, He never answered me just kept staring @ the wall, He didn't look right so I went over to him & grabbed his hand & said to him are you all right? I had to say that about 5 or 6 times before he looked @ me & said, I'm allright Soss please don't worry about me, but used my real name, & he shortened it, & the only person who ever shortened my name & called me by this name was my dead brother, I didn't feel scared But I did feel scared for my carer as he looked like he was ready to have a Heart Attack.
With that my carer came to, & said what happened & looked very disorientated, He said he knows something happened to him but didn't know what, When I told him, he said C'mon you know I DON'T believe in that crap!!!!! I must point out that my carer is a Pom, & the voice that came out of his mouth was NOT my brothers but, IT WAS Australian, He was that shaken up over this, that he went to see his Dr about it & then visited a Shrink, also later on after this, I'd say about 15mins, He was looking @ the movie & without looking @ me said, "I'm So Sad I Feel Like I Wan't To Cry"!!!!!!!!!! when I looked @ him the tears were rolling down his cheeks, So my answer is YES indeed I DO BELIEVE.
Quite a few other things have happened to me & my Family as well & NONE of them can be explained, & WE ALL BELIEVE. Reply

Seen men like him before, usually offer you a tour elsewhere and try to rape you.
So I ignored him and continued walking.
You know he wouldn't leave me alone and repeated the first statement.
"Don't go in there! Something dreadful has happened."
Just ignored him and kept going but I'll give him credit for persistence!
When he said,"Don't go in there! Something dreadful has happened a third time!"
Curiousity got the better of me and asked, "Why! What has happened?"
"BLOOD! BODIES!"
So I turned around and walked the other way and returned the way I came.
Miracles of miracles, he left me alone and didn't try to rape me.

When I returned to where I was staying the place was in an uproar!
"HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS?"
"A mad american Jew walked into the Dome of the rock and shot 10 people, killed 2!"
This german tourist had rocks thrown at him in his bus because it was Jewish.
All the Arabs near the Dome of the Rock started throwing stones as Jerusalem is full of those.
The incident occured 2 minutes ago.

Saw a whole squad of Israeli policemen wearing full riot gear, blue crash hats with visor, breast plate, bullet proof clothing, blue and plastic shields, shin pads, knee pads, guns strapped to their arms and to their legs and knives as well, jogging towards the scene of the crime.

It took me 20 mins to return the way I came. The man warned me 18 minutes before the incident occured.

The streets in Old Jerusalem are so narrow, I couldn't miss getting a rock thrown at me and I would have seen some awful sights if I survived the shooting.

I beleive that there are a lot of things we do not understand, and our hurried lifestyle tends to dampen any psychic qualities that we may have.

Harley man says: I am a strong sceptic and so the fact that I have a ghost story is un nerving in itself. I lived for a couple of years in a sandstone cottage built in 1826 called Emily Cottage and during winter enjoyed a big open fire. Each night I would load up the fire before going to bed to keep the place warm overnight. One night I had been out till about eleven and so did not load the fire up before going to bed. About 2.30 am I woke with a strong desire to go downstairs and load the fire it was a real compolsion. Even though I had an electric blanket on and was not cold. When I had loaded up the fire and it was raging I was standing in front of it and had a flash of movement from my right side and then there was a void of warmth coming from the fire in an area about the size of a small teenage person. My investigations showed that there was a girl of 12 who died in a fire at the house in the 1840's. Even though I am still sceptical I do know what happen and can not explain it. Reply

This was so real that even the family dog would growl and chase the steps, barking at the doorway where they ended. Many things did occur there the entire time I lived there, this was just the most common occurrence, and even the dog responded to it.

I do not believe in 'ghosts', as in the spirits of dead people. I believe these are demonic visitations, often masquerading as dead spirits or other things, sent to deceive humans, and/or fill us with fear. Reply

TerraWitch says: I've had many experiences with the "other side" most of my life. Living at home during my childhood, there would be many unexplained incidences, including NDE. As an adult I asked my Mum about them and she said she seemed to attract "earth-bound" spirits before they fully passed over. I was taught how to "read" ordinary playing cards and would entertain my friends by doing readings. However, a couple of decades I stopped doing this because I freaked out one sitter so much by my accuracy that he accused me actually making it happen.
After a break of about 20 years I've returned to communicating with the spirit world, tho its still a bit haphazard at the moment. I met my beautiful granddaughter 6months before she was conceived & I've channelled & chatted with various entities over recent years. One entity enjoyed hanging around a local community centre because he liked joining in with some of the more educational activities.
As far as seeing ghosts, I've not had that skill until very recently. I've had 2 visual encounters over the past week in my house. Neither were frightening but were more "What the?" The first was just outside the room where my granddaughter was having her sleep & the other just yesterday hovering above my bed after I woke up from my Nanna-nap.
I enjoy having all these experiences :) Reply

Another time, a few of us went to a place in the bush that was renowned for ghost behaviour. A couple had been murdered at this spot under a forked tree that looked very ghostly in the dark.

An errie light suddenly came on in a bush near the tree and we were terrified. There were no houses or people there.

A lot of the time there are bumps in the night it is a spirit being cheeky. They like to play games at times and they love trying to keep people awake for the fun of it.

I have even had a few spirits use me as a messenger for them so that they could protect those they care for and even those I care for.

I am an empath and I seem to have the ability to be used as a medium but I have no training so don't now how skilled I am. I don't mind having the spirit visitors I get most of them are just curious. Reply

I shared the old house with 10 other people and wondered why they always gave me a strange look when I said what room I was in. It was a hot summer day when I decided to sit in the antique chair that was situated in the corner of the room. I tried to sit down but every time I felt cold and unwelcomed even though outside it was hot I could not sit down in this chair. I did not think much about it until I met a very elderly lady who knew about the history of the house I was staying in. She told me the house originally belonged to a very rich couple who lived there in 1905 and that the wife caught her husband cheating on her. She went on to tell me that the wife ended up hanging herself from a chair in the house. When I told her about what had happened to me she said to me; 'Yes, that is Mary.' I eventually moved out of the house because of all the strange things that happened to me in that room, like the following: a figure of the woman sitting on the edge of my bed, other figures walking down the hallway when nobody was there An old record player starting by itself in the middle of the night and the list went on I never believed in ghosts but after living in that house I changed my mind.

miss_vix says: When i was about 20, myself & 2 other mates were living in Springhill, Brisbane, in the quaintest little workers cottage that was at least built in the late nineteenth century. We all fell in love with the place & its quirky nature, with the bathroom being on the back veranda & the unusual open wooden slats around the walls of the stairwell & the floor of the loft room.
One night while i was home alone & had gone to bed early, i awoke at what must have been early morning. I looked around my room to get my bearings right & to familiarise myself with the shadows when i noticed an outline i was not familiar with in the corner where my bookcase stood. While i tried to focus my sight, the dark shadow all off a sudden moved to side of my bed!! There was no noise & the only emotion I had at the time was fear! But the shadow was like that of a woman with long hair standing over me & crouching down to my face in the bed. I was petrified & closed my eyes & laid motionless till the morning.
When i told my housemates, no one believed me & after that, nothing ever occurred to me again. Although about a month later i had a friend from out of town come to stay & after some hours of clubbing, she went home early by herself one & apparently had the same encounter as i had after lying on the side of the bed that i had been in!

Another story i have, as i have had about 3 instances where i have seen ghostly apparitions, was when i was in grade 5, so i was about 11 at the time. Myself, my best friend & her parents had gone camping out at Penguin in Tasmania. We were staying in a secluded camping spot where we had driven down a very long dusty dirt road to get to the site near the beach.
Upon arriving, i couldn’t help but notice the only building standing in view, in the distance & alone in the middle of the paddock, alongside the road. It was an old wooden hay shed i believe, that stood by itself.
After we set up camp that afternoon, we had dinner & as my friend had 2 small dogs, we decided we would take them for a walk so they could do their business before settling in for the night. As the camp grounds were surrounded by trees & bushes, we were unable to see her parents once we walked around the corner. But in some attempt to be funny, my friend ran off playfully with one of the dogs while i trailed along the road alone. When i realized she was not ahead of me, i started to call out to her & the dogs, & i noticed in the moonlight that i had come to the entrance of the campsite & could see the road in which we had arrived on earlier that afternoon with the distant wooden shed in view. As my eyes began to focus on the road, i noticed 2 figures far off in the distance walking alongside of the road. As one person was considerably taller than the other, i just thought that it must have been my friend’s parents. But as soon as i noticed them stop & turned to the shed, they vanished!
As you can imagine, i ran screaming back to the camp, where i found my mate and her parents sitting around the campfire drinking hot chocolate, none the wiser. I told them all about the apparition etc & even though they all seemed to believe me, that night there was no way i could sleep & once morning had arrived, i was so relieved that we were leaving.
Some years later, i made the same trip with my own father down to the campsite on a day trip to the area. And once again, as we drove down the dirt road past the open paddock with the shed in the distance, i realized it had since fallen down & was no longer anything more than a flat bundle of wood. Thankfully, i never saw the figures again either & have only ever told a couple of people of the experience. Reply

At some stage during the evening of our arrival, we lost an item and spent ages looking for it, to no avail. In the morning the item was sitting in the absolute middle of a cusion on the couch. We had not used the couch at all, but during our search we pulled off all of the cushions and checked just in case somehow the item had fallen there. It was definetely not there when we went to bed, and had reappeared at some stage during the night. I was very glad to leave.

She started by telling me that there was a young man waiting to see me. He was with an elderly man with a bad cough, and a much shorter old lady, My grandfather had died of lung cancer, and my great grandmother was very short. I was a little shocked, but determined not to say anything. She said the young man's name started with 'R' - it did. She said that I was very sceptical but that the young man told her that my cat had got up on the kitchen bench the night before and broken a wine glass that I had received for my 21st birthday. That certainly got my attention, as that had happened!! She would never have known that. The young man went on to tell Mum that he was sorry he was gone, but he loved her, and the rest of us, and that he would look after the baby. My daughter was 3, and now at 23, she still has him visit her and guides her. Now my 12 year old son, has his mannerisms. So short answer is, yes I believe in them! Reply

We would go to school with messy rooms and come home to tidy ones, on some nights we could see them also. My sisters and babies life was saved by the ghost as it awoke her and she was rushed to hospital for an emergency c-section. It wasn't until all us kids moved out that our parents believed as that we had a ghost and they sold up and moved within weeks of me moving out. I was the last to go. One of my sisters lived next to an old Maori burial site and when people went on there to cut trees or try and redevelop it weird things went on also. The site has never been touched in over 80 years. I love ghost stories and the likes as we dont no whats out there. dodododododo you have now entered the twilight zone Reply

They would usually stay a few weeks, we would feed them & vet them if necessary. One night I was the only one still up, I was watching TV in the lounge. We did not always close the curtains because a big tree provided us with privacy. I turned to something catching the corner of my eye. There was a cat on the window sill. I turned back to the current cats favourite chair & she was there asleep. I looked back to the window & the cat was gone. I had this really strange feeling about it. I thought I must be seeing things because there was only a windowsill on the inside of the house.
I was still thinking about it the next day when I was feeding the cat in the kitchen when my partner walked in from the lounge saying 'cute grey cat on the window sill' . I ran into the lounge & searched for it .
A few nights later I ran into a friend who is wiccan. She also did numerology. She asked me for my house number. She said it was attracting people & animals who just need a short time to get sorted. She said the ghost cat we saw was like a guide.
I am a believer now. Reply

We were told to go and say our goodbyes as they expected him to pass away shortly. We went in and said our goodbyes (he was still in the coma). I was walking out to the parking lot and I had the most eeriest feeling. I turned around to his window and I swear he was sitting up watching me. We got home and had been there only a few minutes when the hospice rung to say he had died. Freaky. It was as if he had said goodbye to me. Make of it what you will but it scared me!!!!!! Reply

I moved into the house where he lived and died. The main clock in the house went backeards when we moved in. We all saw it,kids and hubby. The same day in the masterbathroom the mirror had about 15 globes around it,hollywood style. The lights had been on for a short time,then they almost all burst/blew out one by one! Many of the globes had recently been replaced with new globes,so some were old some not,but they pretty much all blew.

Then the other weird thing was in the middle of the night I woke up to smell cooked biscuits. I woke up,walked around,went outside...on body was baking,and all our windows were shut.

My father did have a sense of humour so I really dont know what to make of anyof it,nor do the rest of us.

We took the batteries out of the clock to stop it going backwards! Reply

Behind the station is an old historic grave with a marker. The grave is from the 1800's and belongs to a woman who died trying to save her young son after he fell in the river. They both drowned. Anyway, one day I had about an hour to wait for the next train so I walked around behind the platform and sat down near this grave with my boyfriend. We were just chatting, it was a nice day and this was a lovely shady spot overlooking the river. We talked about the grave and the story on the marker, then eventually it was time to go, only I couldnt find my wallet. It had been sitting on the ground in front of me, then when I looked, it wasn't. We stood up, checked around, checked our pockets, emptied my bag. Nothing. I joked that the little boy must be playing games with us, and said out loud that enough was enough and we had to catch the train now. Then we looked down again and the wallet was there. Right there on the ground where it absolutely had not been before. It wasn't frightening at all, it just really felt like there was someone else there. You can go and visit this grave any time, it's not fenced off or anything, it's just right behind the station. Reply

One night I heard the sound of a little girl crying, which sounded like it was just next door and so when I heard the sounds I just thought it was the daughter of a neighbour crying.
The next morning, out of curiousity I went to have a look at the back of the barn and to my surprise the barn was completely stand alone and the nearest house was a good 25 metres away! It freaked me out and every night after that I slept with the TV switched on! Reply

The first was when I went camping down the creek on our family farm, I woke in the middle of the night and saw the shape of an aboriginal elder sitting beside the camp fire I had made at first I was scared but when I realized he was there only to deliver a message to me I calmed down.
The next time I was camping out on a cattle drive and I saw a min min light which I followed until I lost sight of it, I put a maker where I last saw it and came back the next morning to find it was right on the edge of a cliff! Reply

The feeling was that strong that I just froze out of fear with my heart pounding. I eventually whipped my head around to have a look and no one was there. I also get a few signals sent to me like a week before I unfortunately had a miscarriage a picture of a small white cross was sent to me and I immediately knew what it meant.

When we moved in there was a strange smell emanating from one of the rooms and down the bedroom wing. We searched high and low for something that had died etc.in cavities or the roof (remember we had pulled this poor house to pieces and rebuilt just about) we found nothing so we christened the smell Fred and everytime it was there we would say" its all right Fred now go away" and the smell would disappear. It never came to the Dining room or the Kitchen so what it was we will never know. It never bothered my girls but didn't come when other people were there. We lived there for 16 years we don't know if the people there now have experienced though. So did someone die in that house or what??? Reply

No reply. As I stood the phantom drifted away down a passageway. The following evening, the same lady(stood) outside the front of our home as I approached (alone).
As I approached, she once again drifted away. .

There really are ghostbusters around - go to any local Pentecostal church such as Assembly of God, New Life, Elim and tell the Pastor and ask him could he & a small group of believers, pray through your house and bless it.

She would wake up in the middle of the night and would feel like she was pinned down and would see someone standing at the bottom of the bed, but when she was able to get her hand free and touch the lamp it would all go away with the light.
Another time she said she had a glass of water just sitting there and it just tipped over all by it's self.
Mum has passed now, and we always had a bit of a pact that when she died she would send me a sign, to let me know that there was another side, but I am still waiting to hear from her and it's been a year.
When my son died at 23 I expected to hear from him but never even dreamed of him, strange.
Maybe it's the spirits that are traped here on earth, that don't cross over for whatever reason, that are the ghosts that we see. Reply

My son who was 3, was first to have a shower. I went to grab a towel and when I turned around, there was a smily face drawn on the shower screen. I smiled and pointed but no one else could see it. We went to bed and I was woken by a childs voice saying 'mummy, mummy...where are you?' I woke to find my son asleep. I looked at the chair in the corner of the room and saw the outline of an African American man sitting there watching me. I stumbled out of bed and and something drove me to the cupboard. I flung open the doors and saw the outline of a woman. I ran into the bathroom and found that the towels had been rearranged. All I could hea ringing in my ears was 'Mummy... mummy' I turned around and shouted 'I'm not your mummy!' I was hysterical at this point and I rang security. I demanded to be moved to another room in another wing of the hotel. One of the security guys that came was older and had been working at the hotel for years. I told I had seen strange things and asked about a murder in this room. He hesitated for a minute and said that I lady with a child had been murdered by her boyfriend after a dispute! Wow, I was stunned. Reply

I have had contact with many that have past since I was little and my parents have always allowed it so. They knew that my imaginary friends were not so imaginary.
I don't see them I sense and hear them.

My grandfather came to me the night before an operation to tell me that I would loose a lot of blood but it was not my time to go. I infromed the surgeon of my blood type and what would happen and he said that all would be well and not to worry. When I awoke they had replace 2 bags of blood because I wouldn't stop bleeding. I spent the next 2 days in ICU while I recovered. The surgeon and anaesthetists needless to say were a little shaken. Reply

I was seeing a couple of Police Officers outside my door. I had had a domestic dispute to deal with and was feeling rather shaken and upset when I felt what I thought was one of my Siamese cats brushing past me and running off into the middle of the night. Once the small cat reached my trees on the front of the property it seemed to disappear completely. The Police Officer shone his torch through the trees to no avail, the little Siamese cat was no-where to be seen. I went down to my back room and counted 5 sleeping Siamese cats, not a stir out of them. (I thought mmmm how strange). 4 days later Narla gave birth to 3 healthy pure Siamese kittens, 1 boy and 2 girls. Then I though about my experience and wondered if my little Simba had paid a ghostly visit on the anniversary of his death 1 year before this sighting occurred, sadly he passed away at 4 weeks and 2 days of an infection before he had his 1st vaccinations. I will never forget him struggling to make his final journey before his tiny body died on that fatal Saturday night. We have laid him to rest beside a beautiful miniature blood-red rose that blooms in the summer-time. Perhaps his little spirit awoke and he came to give Narla's 3 kittens a special blessing 4 days before their birth. I'de sure like to think that he is out there watching over all of my other precious cats! . Reply

After half an hour or so we got fed up with what appeared to be little response or suspicious of each other for moving the upside down glass to the various letters to spell out replies. We all left the table and one of my friends commented that it was all a load of rubbish when the glass flipped itself off the table and shattered. No one was anywhere close enough to the table to have caused it to happen. I dont think any of us have " played" with ouiji boards since. Reply

Another encounter with a ghost was in a house I bought, the previous owner was a full on smoker, he didn't believe in opening windows, doors or blinds so the entire house smelt of smoke and the walls were covered in tar, it stank. I'd cleaned the house inside and out within an inch of it's life, the smells were gone. The previous owner past away about 6 months later and decided too roam the halls of my home, how did I know. The smell of smoke that followed him. Another time in the same house I was taking photos of my son & daughter together on the lounge, behind them was an old antique mirror after having the photos developed I found one of the photo's had an image in the mirror and was not in any before or after it. I scanned the photo onto my computer and enlarged it, low and behold there is a spooky looking face. Reply

Katie says: My uncle died quite suddenly from liver cancer when I was 15. I never got the chance to say goodbye to him. The night before my 18th birthday he appeared to me in our house in the study waving goodbye to me. Immediately after his ghost disappeared I felt closure and at peace. I knew as I was walking up the hallway to the study there was someone in there and I knew exactly who the ghost was when I saw it. Reply

The only thing I can claim to fame is lights in the sky, one night, over the north of the South Island of New Zealand. Renowned for UFO sightings, I happened to look up and saw lights following each other and then did a u-turn and went back. Strange......but probably a scientific explanation. Reply

James says: No I have never seen a ghost, but have had a spooky experience, late one night my wife and I heard heavy breathing, it was so loud I got out of bed and switched on the light, the breathing continued, I left the room and could not hear the breathing, I went out of the house and around to the bedroom window, no breathing sound heard. I asked my wife through the window if it had gone, the reply was NO, yet I could not hear it. So into the house and I got my ladder and a torch and got up to the attic, shining the torch revealed nothing, listening, no breathing, my wife with the bedroom door open could still hear it inside the room. The house had a concrete floor.

We were leaving the rented house to move into our own which had just been finished, My wife said out loud,.... much to my amusement I may add, ....I don't know who you are, but you can come with us if you like.... amazingly the breathing stopped instantly... we moved and often speak of the event, bu have never had any occurrence since.... Strange things can happen ??????? Reply

And not spooky as such, but I reckon I saw a UFO too. I just stepped out one evening to go to the garage next to the house and I only had a second to take it in as it was going so fast and was so large but it went over the house and was gone. Weird... Reply

Things had gotten moved around on a table and when this happened the room went very cold. It gave the impression that a ghostly presence or spirit was in the room. I have seen a Min MIn light in my younger days while living in central western Queensland. These are the only spooky things that I have ever seen in my lifetime. Reply

mermaid says: My besty and I were house sitting for a week and we knew there was a resident ghost in the house due to the many stories told by the owners. On the second night of our sitting we also baby sat for her neice and nephew who were 3 and 6months old. The baby awoke crying and aunty went to pacify as she did I noticed a shadow through the glass doorway adjacent to the lounge for some reason I took this to be a woman perhaps instinct. The shadow was a dark silhouette similar to what you would see looking through frosted glass. I didn't feel any form of threat just a sense of warmth and there was no heating on at the time.
I shared this upon her return and she turned to me and iher reaction spoke volumes of fear. I mentioned the sense of warmth upon sighting the presence although this didn't deter her from placing a blanket over her head lol....Halfway through our movie I noticed the shadow again this time outside the doorway of where the children were sleeping. There was zero glass just a small entry into the room between where we were seated. We both looked at each other and she froze no sooner this occurred neice came into the room saying who is that lady in the room.

My besty started panicking I picked up her neice and said what does she look like she described the lady including the clothing she was wearing. I went into the room and saw no-one though felt something perhaps due to the what her tot neice had shared. I tucked her in sat with her for a while and felt a warmth around me, I returned to the lounge room where my friend was still under the blanket and she was adamant she wanted to go home upon her brother n wife collecting the children. After she calmed down we received a phone call from the next door neighbour sharing her cat was struggling to release himself from a fence wire on the roof of garden shed in the yard.
I took to helping the cat relax before releasing him to his owner, we got to chatting about the previous owners whom we discovered purchased the house as raised 5 children in their twilight years the husband passed and his wife resided there with a carer until she passed. I enquired as to what the owner was like and learned she was a very friendly person and made lots of friends and still visits the neighbours today the same way she had all those years ago. Through their kitchens, garden hedges and on the back steps of others. I described our experience and the neighbour brought a picture of her and the women ghost who had appeared before us. My besties neices description of the women was spot on down to the clothes. I also learned the room we put the children in was the room her grand children occupied when they were littlies.

This is not my only experience and I believe we all have the ability to tap into our inner selves and truly connect and on doing so we see the world in a different light.

Here is another experience I have warmly welcomed my besties Mom passed my sister was standing in our kitchen and saw her at the end of the yard smiling. She sung out to her to come and have a cuppa with Mom as this was her bestie and the very way she always arrived through the garden. The phone rang it was my Mom to she had this minute passed away. Upon sharing my sisters experience my Mom replied she wanted everyone to know she is fine and will be watching over us all. 30yrs on and I still receive dreams with her Mom pointing me in the direction of my besty when things are amiss and with each encounter it becomes evident she remains close to us.

Many years ago a flat mate and I decided to move on in doing so we encounter a property that made me stop in my tracks. He motioned on and I stood quite still at the gate with the agent encouraging us to the viewing.

He called out to me and urged him to come and speak with me for a moment. He enquired as to what the problem was, I advised the minute I set foot on the pathway it was like an angry person was beside me and the force of the anger was brutual to the point of feeling tight in my chest.
He said just come with me inside and if you don't like what you see or feel we'll leave. As I motioned forward the anger grew, I asked the agent whether there had been any form of trouble in the dwelling he said not to his knowledge. I enquired as to whether any consideration was given to seek such on account of what I was feeling. He suggested perhaps I was feeling ill knowing full well I wasn't.
I went into the doorway of the home and it smelt terrible, no sooner i entered into the main bedroom I near fainted. I felt someone pushing me towards the window with full force. My flat mate turned to me and said what the you've gone pale white are you ok, I shared my experience and he said we're outta here.

We went next door to the neighbours and learned there had been a terrible death in the house and someone died a tragic death in the very room I experienced unpleasantries. The neighbour also advised it started in the driveway where I stood and that since the property has remained unoccupied.

I challenged the agent with his denial of anything untoward and upon doing so other people who were viewing the property left in distaste sharing they felt the house was cold and for a summers day didn't make much sense.

I shared with the agent to be open and honest is the best policy and to have the home blessed to release negativity that bounds the home and the passed occupancies. He continued to deny anything untoward occurred in the property to his knowledge. My flat mate made a point of writing to the agency owners and in doing so received an apology with a view to seeking a minister to bless the home months later we passed the property and spoke to the neighbours who shared the property was leased for 2 short months the occupants left due to terrible things occurring in the property during their time. Eventually the property was demolished and made way for 2 dwellings interesting how things pan out we often wondered how the new owners felt on this block of uncleansed land.

He was very hot to touch” I said not much time left “ with that he died, I cover his body over with a sheet. Went to the desk to phone the Dr and then his family of his passing. I spoke to one of the staff about phoning and informing of their love one passing. When I saw the room with the patient, fill with smoke?, from the ceiling came a shape of a man – but not solid , and stop and stood at the head of the bed. The sheet that was covering the body rose off him, at this time I was in the process of dailing his wife, I was like a stunned mullet. The other staff member that was up the desk a bit further down only saw the smoke? Filled room and the sheet rise above the body.
The sheet then fell back over the body, the smoke? And the man went, as he had come.

I have had two experiences that were quite erie. The first one was in a friends house in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1979. We went to his Mother-in-Laws house for lunch and he warned me that sometime the rocking chair in the lounge would start rocking for no reason and he said it was his Father-in-Law looking after Mom as there was a stranger in the house and sure enough that is exactly what happened after we had luch and went into the lounge for a coffee. I freaked out. The second one was when I worked for a charity and we had a warehouse we worked out of that people said was haunted. I didn't believe it but one night I had to go into the warehouse and get some items and while I was walking down the hall way of the area I was in I had this sensation of my face tightening and it was like someone was pulling my skin back. I took a couple of deep breaths and got the hell out of there.

We were holidaying at Hokitika in the late 1970s where we watched a light (which we thought was a plane) hover for a few minutes in the night sky, then do a rapid 360° turn and disappear upwards! I was only a child but can still remember my parents debating whether it could have been a helicopter until we turned on the local radio and there were other people reporting it.
My Mum and I had travelled to the Clarence river (near Kaikoura) when there were reports of UFOs in the sky. We camped there for 3 nights but didn't see anything :( Reply

Me and my brother would love biking up and down the hallway. It would be when you were on your own when you felt aware of the house. We had been told what went on were in the house and when. That freaked me out, i would never go down the other end of the house by myself. It wasn't until later when me and my brother were bored as it was raining, that we heard footsteps coming onto the lino. We looked towards were the noise was coming from saw nothing. So we just thought that must of been something else. Mum was up the other end of the house (if you were wondering) Dad was at work. But then the footsteps happened again! it was getting closer. So then me and my brother ran for it!! We told our mum and dad but they never beilved us. I still remember that day.

Catenary says: I have been approached by people who were having scary things happen in their homes, when I was vicar of a Dandenong Ranges parish. Often it was a room which had a very scary feel to it, and family members were reluctant to use it. My usual approach was to go to the home, gather the family members for a prayer service which included ordering the evil influences out, and quite often a Holy Communion service as part of the service.
At one home, in the affected room, my wife said she felt something cold brush past her in a hurry to get out. The family later reported that the room was no longer scary, and they could be quite relaxed when in that room alone. Yes, there are spiritual nasties around!

I do believe in ghosts, always have and always will, I believe there are other dimensions in this world of ours and very unhappy souls walking about waiting to rest in peace, a few years later a friend from New Guinea visited, and the first morning afterwards, he slept on the couch in our lounge room asked us if there was anything peculiar happening in our house? he also sensed a presence in our house, till this day have never worried about it as we do believe in ghosts etc. Reply

When ever Dad had to go away on excersise the ghost would patrol the hallway of the house. You could hear his footsteps at night but he would always stop at the doorway of the bedrooms and just watch to make sure we were alright. You would be overcome with the feeling of being watched, but it was never a creepy or bad feeling. He just used to check up on us.

Also, just after my Great Grandmother died, I was sitting alone in her bedroom looking at the necklace she'd left for me. The photo of her and my great grandfather, sitting on her dressing table, lit up like it had a spot light on it for around 3 seconds, before returning to normal. That one freaked me out abit.

I never ever believed in ghost and things.. But there was that day when my uncle passed away suddenly. When I say suddenly, I mean it because he was young enough, healthy and fun. One day we heard he had a bad fever and we got no time to go visit him that we received the bad news.

It was a very mystery death because we all doubted that he had a suicide (there are reasons for us to believe that) or there was negligence at the hospital. so in both cases its was an anormal death.

And the night of his funeral was horrible. There was a weird feeling, like he is around. But I didnt care about it thinking I was just missing him. But i know it was a weird 'missing' kind. That night I was woken up by something I cant say what and guess what ..I saw him standing and watching me.. in a fraction of second he was gone thogh.. I was not scared of him but I couldn believe this.. I never ever believed in ghost! and here I saw one..

I remember one night trying to get to sleep, I could feel something pulling at my hair, I thought it was the cat, I sat up to look for him but there was no cat, all of a sudden the room went deathly cold I jumped out of bed and felt like I couldn't move, a horrible smell like burning rubber suddenly entered the room, I ran out of my room, then for whatever walked back in where I heard a voice yell, get out of my room now! I was only about 15 at the time and wouldn't sleep in my room for about a fortnight.
Fast forward a few years later and I was stuck in the middle of my year 12 exam, up late studying one night, I just threw all my books on the floor and turned off my light, I awoke in the middle of the night and saw a man holding a silver tray dressed like a butler standing over me, I blinked and he was gone, that morning my bag was packed! I asked my mother why she packed my bag and she said she didn't know what I was talking about, then I mentioned, I think we have a ghost in the house, and told her what I saw, apparently my grandmother had seen the 'same ghost' dressed like a butler but didn't want to scare me. So I feel that two people seeing the same 'encounter' must hold some water! Reply

I shared the bedroom with my two other sisters but I never said anything to them or anyone else about this experience.
35 years later two of my three sisters were over to attend my youngest daughters wedding. I spoke to them about it. Both sisters had seen this person at different times in the same room, always at night. My youngest sister is 19 years younger than I am.
Two of my daughters had also seen the nocturnal visits by this person/apparition while sleeping in the same room at my parents home. One daughter saw this person lean over her sister, while her sister saw this person walk past the doorway of the same room (my father was no longer alive at that time, so it wasn't him).
My youngest daughter was disappointed not to have had the same experience.
One of my sisters told me that the sister we shared the room with had also seen this apparition.
None of us had feared this person. There were no bad feelings of any sort emanating from him. I did have the impression that this person was looking at me and was surprised at my being there. Reply

When i was younger he used to play tricks on me & move my things around & i also encountered him coming down the hallway one night when i was home alone & he used to make the house go really cold & there have been other people who have encountered him as well.

However I was in contact with a yahoo group who had quite a number of images of 'orbs'. Some I am sure were just flare, but perhaps not all.

One night I mustve heard a noise, I opened my eyes and looked out the door into the dark kitchen. What I saw freaked me out and 30 years on I can still the image. There was a woman dressed in a old day maids outfit, with the apron and frilly hat cooking at my mums stove. I closed my eyes and hoped I was dreaming but when I opend them again, the maid was still there. From that night on I moved into the other bed in my room so I couldnt see out the door anymore. What also freaks me out is how i have saved a few friends lives by telling them not to drive on a particular road, I have know idea why I knew to tell them that, but at the time they would have been driving along the road, there was an accident where someone was killed. I have also dreamed about my bosses wifes pregnancy before he even knew she was!!!! i went into work one day and asked him if his wife was pregnant, he said she wasnt, but the next day when i went to work he called me over and said guess what......shes pregnant!!!!!!! neither of us could believe that one.

Later when I inquired about the sensation, I was told by a well known and respected medium, that our bedroom was most likely a door way for spirits to pass from one place to the next. These beings caused me no harp or fear, they just were. However I burnt Rosemary and lavender, that appeared to have closed the door. But I miss the free feeling I had in that room, when meditating.

I went to Alice Springs where I worked on the Hospital site extensions, doing the suspended ceilings, working from 3am till 2pm daily. We lived in separated areas of containers and were fed at a place called Malanka, where we showed a card to eat. At the entrance were three public phones. One day I went in to eat and saw the phones were all being used and had intended ringing my Fiancée's Mother, so decide on the way out after eating. As I came out one of the phones rang, all were vacant, I was surprised, so went and answered the phone. It was her mother, she told me she for some reason just had to ring the number that was annoying her for some reason, not knowing it or why it was annoying her. She was never given the number by me or anyone, she didn't even know I had left for Alice Springs. Days later a letter arrived which was almost word for word what I had written to her. Checking the dates and times on the letters, we would have been writing these letters at the same time on the same day. weird!! but why question things you do not understand, eh? Reply

Small objects like pens, the cat's toys etc used to disappear from around the house and a relative staying in the room claimed she saw them appear in mid air and drop on the floor of that bedroom. Once when we were going to bounce a cheque, to make the most of a sale on an item we really needed, my husband grabbed the cheque book and put it in his pocket and when we got down to the shop we couldn't find the cheque book anywhere - I had seen him pick it up and put it in his pocket before we left but it was gone, we searched the entire car. When we got home it was back where we normally keep it, but we both knew, he hadn't forgotten it......we figure our ghost didn't want us bouncing a cheque. Reply

For the first 12 months everytime I went into the spare room it looked like someone had been sitting on the end of the bed. I would straighten it out and leave the room but the next time I would go in there it would again look like someone had sat on the end of the bed. I found out after a while that the elderly owner of the house slept in that room and actually died their. So i would then go into the room and ask her nicely to please straighten the covers before she would leave. I think she stuck around long enough to realise that we love this house as much as she did and now she knows it she has moved on. Reply

I asked my sister after a few months of restless sleep if she had seen anything (she could see right into my room from her bedroom) and she told me she saw a black figure standing by my bed watching me sleep every night. She said she always thought that it had been mum but was never sure. Whenever i went into the backyard and looked at my window on the second floor, it looked like there was a shadow standing there and it always freaked me out. We moved back to NZ after that and in my new house (i was older) i stayed up late one night to straighten my hair. I left my bathroom door open so i could put the straightners away when i was finished. It was around midnight and i was the only one awake. I went to turn the kitchen light off so i wouldnt forget. when i returned, my bathroom door was closed. I was a little freaked out so i went to bed and turned out the little light by my bed. i rolled over and went to sleep, but five minutes later there was a bright light and i rolled over to see my lamp was back on. I panicked out a little and turned it off, deciding that if it happened again i would tell my dad. I rolled over going back to sleep. around ten minutes later it turned on again and i shot out of bed and ran to my dads room. on my way i noticed that the kitchen light was back on when i distinctly remember turning it off. I told my dad and he said it must of been something going on with the fuses but he couldnt explain the bathroom door, so he opened it so it would be open for me in the morning. I went to sleep and when i woke up the bathroom door was closed again. I was the only one awake. Stuff like that has been happening ever since like when my friends came to stay the windows of my room would be open thier full extent and everytime i closed it it would happen again a few minutes later.
thats my story, and i still live in this house.. Reply

angell.exist says: I do, i really do - Ive had plenty of strange things happen to me over the years and currently having more strange things happen in our place we are living at the moment .
When we first moved in it was fine nothing weird was going on but just lately we have been looking for things and just not being able to find them (yet we swear it was just in the place we thought) then randomly an hour or so later we'll walk into a room and whatever we were looking for it just sitting there in the middle of the floor (sometimes i can be hunting for like 30-60mins and just cannot find it and have a little break and then walk back in and there it is, right in front of me yet i have hunted and hunted and not found it). my husband has had tools move from where he has put them and randomly turned up in front of me yet i haven't moved and nothing dropped or fell, if it did we would have heard it and noticed as its not like these tools are light, they might quite a loud thud when dropped on the floor no matter the height. Also our dog has started growling and barking for no reason and looks past us (behind us) and its sooo like there is someone/something there that it actually makes us turn around and check no one is actually there. Also get cold chills 'like someone walking over your grave' feeling when the room is warm as heater on. Also have had her bark before and saw a shadow behind our stereo and wires moving etc and thought the cat was there but no he was outside. Just random things like that (most recent) but thankfully im quite a spiritual person so i believe in the after life and don't let it scare me. Also been hearing lots of footsteps at nighttime when in bed - have thought it was my husband until i got up and realised he was asleep on the couch with the dog and the cat...

Also a few years ago my granddad was really sick in hospital and we all had to go and say our goodbyes as he was leaving us/passing away, that night i found it very hard to sleep, finally managed to after crying myself to sleep. At about 2:30am i woke (not sure why) and was trying to go back to sleep when a txt message came through - i knew what it was going to say without even reading it, i knew my granddad had passed.... i had this feeling that he might come and say goodbye to me somehow so i hid under the covers. my husband was asleep & i didnt want to wake him with just a weird feeling, so im under the covers in complete darkness when all of a sudden there was a light in our bedroom, it had to be pretty bright as i could see it even though the covers as i was still hidden, i finally picked up the courage to have a look and it was our dvd player (with a digital clock),it took me a little bit to focus on the brightness of the light and realised it was the clock but the clock wasn't saying a time it said I LOVE YOU. i then hid again and somewhere in the next few hours managed to fall back asleep. In the morning i was trying to work out if what i saw was real but then i realised using digital numbers there are certain letters you can not make. a V for instance and a Y. When i told my husband about this (took me a few days as i didnt know if he'd believe me), he then went and tried to work it out too and he also realised the same as me, you cant make certain letters out of digital numbers, Digital numbers are always a straight or flat lined, not vertical in anyway. He said he had no doubt it would have been him saying his final goodbye and letting me know he was still around even if not in person. I'll never forget this as its soo vivid in my mind even to this day.
Ive had friends since not believe me when ive told them as they dont believe in things like this but hearing them to try explain it any other way is quite funny as they never seem to make sense, guess it just freaks some people out.
Ive had other experiences as well but i think this post is long enough, sorry if i have gone on a bit. Hopefully other people have also had these kinds of strange experiences... and also believe me. :) Reply

The most common noise we heard at night was a door in our hallway being opened, it used to stick so had a distinct sound, of course there was never anybody there when we looked. Another time we heard what sounded like something being dropped and broken in the kitchen, though once again there was no evidence of this. When my in laws visited us for the first time there, my father in law rushed out of the house and refused to visit us there again. He never would tell us what he had seen, tt was only years later after we had moved out that we found out he had seen somebody in our lounge! I wondered if it showed himself to him to scare him deliberately because my father in law had been negative about the house from the moment he walked inside. Apart from the noises, we never did see it, though if we had, we would have left instantly!! Reply

I felt like I had been dropped, then saw a white shadow at the end of the bed. I couldn't make out facial features, but there was an old cloak over the shape of a person. It was looking at me as if it was checking me out, then just faded away. From that moment on we had movement and noises whenever visitors arrived. I felt like it was a protector, not a threat, so I lived with it. I now own a house in Wellington, and that too has a ghost, who appears frequently. We all live in harmony, and we don't have too many problems with him there. Reply

I had a 'feeling' there was something there and one day someone pull my hair. I thought it was my son playing tricks. This happened a couple of times and I never discussed this with the family.Then my son came upstairs one day wondering why I was calling him, (which I wasn't).A week later he suggested that the house was haunted which did not surprise me but it is commonly known that children 'see' spirits more frequently than adults. Maybe they are more open to these things? Later we discussed these happenings and my husband then admitted he had 'seen' a spirit walking across the foot of the bed into the bathroom several times.Strange that none of us had said anything until we had all had something happen to us. Needless to say we didn't stay long in this house. There are far too many accounts of spirit for them NOT to exist. Reply

But at midnight it had run into our place as if coming to say goodbye, rubbed round my legs, and ran off - no doubt it was to die. This made me feel more confident that one of our cats came back to say goodbye after he had to be put to sleep. I felt terrible about it, and we buried him in the back yard. Later that night, I'd swear I saw him sitting there looking at me. I called but he ran off. I hope he was forgiving me for having him put down.

Both my husband and little girl were in the lounge room. I didn't feel threatened but strangely I knew it was my late grandfather (who died six months before I was born). When I mentioned this to my husband, he said that there was a soft glow in the kitchen and could not explain why. My sister-in-law is a well known oracle in Canada, and she has done a reading for me by phone, and the things she told me were so accurate that I thought my brother must have told her something. Even down to the family issues or should I say dysfunctional family issues. Things that have been revealed sent some shivers down my spine, while others have validated what I went through as a teenager. My mother passed away nearly 9 years ago now and I still feel her around me, and I'm glad. Reply

Carol-Lynn says: Cool. My favorite topic. Supernatural & spookiness!

Yes, I've seen ghosts. At the last house I lived in, things would move, doors would open by themselves & I would see things I couldn't explain. The spookiest ghost encounter happened with a black cat that we had to put down. My dad put the cat in a mainly unused room until he could bury her later that day. That night, after he had buried her, I went to get something out of the room only to see a black cat run past the room. Now we had another black cat & I just thought it was him, as he probably stole some of mum's chicken again! As I left the room, I saw the black cat go through the wall into the room.

I have had other spooky things happen. One time I remember clearly was when I was walking down a pathway back in high school. I felt a cold hand touch my shoulder. I turned around only to find that no one was there. There has also been plenty of times where I had been woken up to something breathing in my ear or the feeling of something on my bed, but no one & nothing visible is ever there. Of course, there is also that feeling that something is watching me but nothing is there, which happens every so often.

Houses carry feelings of the owners & previous owners, whether people realise it or not. I had a boyfriend that I didn't like to visit is his, 'cause each time I went there, there was this overwhelming angry feling in the house & I found that the longer I stayed in the house, the angrier I got. My current boyfriend's house I also don't like as it has this insecure, on-edge & depressed feeling to it & again the more I am there, the more I tap into those feelings. This is way I like the current place I live, because no one has lived here before.

I don't believe my mind is quite enough to hear the other side but I do hear drips & drabs every now & again. Reply

Carol-Lynn says: Cool. My favorite topic. Supernatural & spookiness!

Yes, I've seen ghosts. At the last house I lived in, things would move, doors would open by themselves & I would see things I couldn't explain. The spookiest ghost encounter happened with a black cat that we had to put down. My dad put the cat in a mainly unused room until he could bury her later that day. That night, after he had buried her, I went to get something out of the room only to see a black cat run past the room. Now we had another black cat & I just thought it was him, as he probably stole some of mum's chicken again! As I left the room, I saw the black cat go through the wall into the room.

I have had other spooky things happen. One time I remember clearly was when I was walking down a pathway back in high school. I felt a cold hand touch my shoulder. I turned around only to find that no one was there. There has also been plenty of times where I had been woken up to something breathing in my ear or the feeling of something on my bed, but no one & nothing visible is ever there. Of course, there is also that feeling that something is watching me but nothing is there, which happens every so often.

Houses carry feelings of the owners & previous owners, whether people realise it or not. I had a boyfriend that I didn't like to visit is his, 'cause each time I went there, there was this overwhelming angry feling in the house & I found that the longer I stayed in the house, the angrier I got. My current boyfriend's house I also don't like as it has this insecure, on-edge & depressed feeling to it & again the more I am there, the more I tap into those feelings. This is way I like the current place I live, because no one has lived here before.

I don't believe my mind is quite enough to hear the other side but I do hear drips & drabs every now & again. Reply

The passage light would also turn on by itself. When mother-in-law or niece would babysit they told us they felt uneasy & that something didn't feel right.
Years after we left that house our eldest son who was about 7-8 years at that time, mentioned that he had nightmares about someone pushing on his chest & trying to strangle him, he felt very afraid & that something didn't want him in that bedroom. We were also told after we left that house that an old man had died in that same bedroom.
However, my husband & myself never felt that the presence was evil, just that something was there, not knowing at the time what our son was going through, wish I had known I would have tried to do something about it.

It had a verandah and a number of the rooms could be entered from the verandah. One day I happened to be on the verandah. I opened the door. This was a v ery nice big room -- the sort of room you would expect to be in use. Apart from the door from the verandah there was another door by which to enter the house. I walked in the room, and immediately noticed that it was unusually cold in there, and I felt distinctly uncomfortable. None of the other rooms from the verandah were like this. I would not under any circumstances have been willing to stay in that room. My sister told me that some peope felt noting, but others felt the same as I did. She also told me that she had been informed that the wife of a previous owner was believed to have died in there. Reply

GoBears says: About 30 years ago when I was growing up, a good school friend of mine committed suicide in scrub land very near my place, an old Queenslander. No one knew why he did it. He was very popular in school, good looking, the girls admired him, great sense of humour. It never made sense to his family, to anyone, to any of his good mates including me. He had hung himself in the scrub. Not long after, at night while I was fast asleep, I heard tapping on the glass of my bedroom window. I'm on the top of a double bunk bed, older brother down below. I look up and see my friend smiling and staring at me through the window. A window two storeys above the ground below. I put bed covers over my head hoping it wasn't happening and I'm dreaming. The tapping continues for what seems like ages then stops and I eventually fall asleep. I tell my brother next morning and he said he heard nothing. This repeated the next night and the night after. On the third night I gathered some courage to look back at my friend, he's still smiling and gesturing with his hands to come to the window and was pointing down. I sat up petrified on my bed and shook my head motioning I'm not going anywhere. He kept smiling, looking back at me for what seemed like ages then disappeared. I cried myself to sleep and never saw him visit again. This experience I've only shared with family, recounting it now. Back then I felt it to be so real and to this day I still think it happened and it wasn't a dream, especially the loud tapping on the glass. Reply

Raksha says: I can't honestly say I have ever seen a ghost, but many of my family and friends have seen them and still do so.
I come from a family of 'intuitive' people. My mother used to tell us that Grandma, who had been dead for at least 10 years, used to visit her and talk to her about what we were doing and when we needed help, and generally she was right.
My sister and nephew both could predict what was going to happen and be right. My nephew often acted as a medium when others wanted to communicate with the 'other side'.
I did a course once on developing psychic ability, and found that I was able to 'see' what others were concentrating on, but I just don't have the same ability that others in my family have.
My neighbour has a spirit that visits her frequently and gives her advice.
I believe that we all have a spiritual guide and with meditation we can contact them. I have found that my intuition has become stronger and have come to trust my first impressions of people or places. Reply

littan says: I dont believe in ghosts, but I do believe in spirits. Im not a 100% sure what the difference is myself, but it may be the softer touch to the terminology that makes me think in favour of spirits but not ghosts. Whatever the perception, I believe the difference to be that spirits are all of living creatures that were once on this earth and have returned in invisible form to protect/look over their loves ones still alive.
I think in Japan, it is said that passed spirits take an year to part from earth to wherever they go, many of which would call heaven.
My dog passed years ago, and for the first time I experienced a ghost/spirit. It was weird as i knew when she was around in the house, or sitting close-by, and there was no way of explaining it other than that i knew. She used to sleep by my feet at every night for as long as i can remember, and on few nights, I had felt the weight of her on my bed, just as it felt when she was alive. I'm one that is scared of ghosts more than many others, but with my dog, it just made me smile of our memories and miss her a lot.
However, my mom commented "she hasn't been visiting you recently has she?" and we realised I had stopped sensing her almost exactly an year after she had passed. Its been over a decade and my dog's spirit still lures the house from the memories, but she is not "there" anymore. She seems to have visited once after when my sister went back few years ago to my parents' place- my sister felt her lingering the house for a day or two while she was there, but thats about it.
Funny how that is, but I have no choice but to believe after this incident that there must be invisible forms of life we are unaware of that maybe come clear to us at death... who knows?! Reply

I have been completely unable to find any REAL proof that they exist for a start, then there's the fact that people who say they have seen one always say it was dressed in Roman centurion's uniform, or a crinoline, or carrying some object, such as a sword. Now, even if I DID believe that the human spirit was strong enough to get into some ethereal world as a ghost, I find it totally impossible to imagine that a uniform, or a dress would have the same capability! It's the same impossible problem as those films which show people reducing to inches tall, or becoming invisible - their clothes always go with them! Ridiculous!! Reply

Wyrd says: Have encountered a few ghosts over the years - the first was when I was living in shared accommodation. Long weekend and my house mates had left for the beach and after coming home after a long day at work I was peeved to find out that they had not done the house work as promised. Needless to say I said a few things out loud. Fast forward to the next day - due to headache and a glass of wine and just the general need for sleep I woke quite late the next day. On walking into the kitchen the place was spotless with only a couple of dishes left out on the bench. There was a smell of lemon and lavender and wax in the house - not the usual smell after we had cleaned and polished furniture but quite nice.

I made tea and went out to the lounge room intending to call on of the housemate's Mums to see if they had come in to do some of the cleaning to which I received a reply that she was away. I then called our other regular cleaner only to be told that she was ill and had not been up to coming over.

Well what to do so I went and inspected the rest of the house - dining room clean and table polished, kitchen clean as was the lounge room, hmmm boys rooms all done and polished, beds made and clean clothes folded up on the end of the bed (washing was still in the baskets when I got home) and the bath was clean as well. Downstairs there was sheets on the line and my clothes were on the line under the house (my washing usually lived in a basket just inside my room).

The lady next door invited me over for morning tea and I asked if anything unusual had ever happened since she and her family had moved into their house. She replied that a couple of times when kids were sick and husband was really busy with work and she was dead tired that housework had been done. Next move speaking to another neighbour who was the local historian - the two houses were built on the site of one larger one which had been burned down during the fifties. A doctor had built the house and had a small practice there as well and employed a housekeeper who had died in the fire. Spooky but nice - housemates on return thanked me profusely for doing all the housework over the long weekend. I just smiled ... Reply

Lucky it was just a small one and he was fine. i have heard voices asking me to help them. and i have. They have not bothered me or been scary. I had reacurring dreams that i worked out was telling me my Mum was going to pass away soon, in the dream i saw and heard things that happened on the night my Mum left. (I wasn't there) Lots of other things also. i have had one very scary encounter that will stay with me forever. Also when i'm really missing someone i love that has passed away, i ask them to send me a sign that they are near me, i tell them what i'll look out for, and i always get the sign i ask for, with a real nice feeling to go with it.

Nothing unusual about that - except that he looked distinctly two dimensiona,l translucent, and ghostly white. I said nothing, assuming that I must have imagined it. When we both alighted from the car seconds later, however, instead of walking to the front door my husband turned sharply back towards the road. 'Where on earth are you going?' I asked in amazement. 'It's 1am!' There was a ghostly white man in a trench coat and trilby hat standing in front of that old Morris' he said. But it had gone. We never saw it again although we lived in that house for many years afterwards.

ninna says: I have had a few scary experiences, 1st was when I was aged 16 while in the car with my Mum & a friend. Mum was driving on a road we used often, it was a narrow road with many curves & blind bends. As we were approaching a particularly bad section of it I started to panic screaming at my mother from the back seat to slow down, fortunately she stopped & pulled over as 2 cars immediately came around the corner side by. Sadly years later I came into contact with someone who had been in the same situation on the same corner & she was severely injured leaving her in permanent palliative care, the local council has since fixed that road by taking out that bend as it was just too dangerous & had no room for error.
2nd time I was on my lunch break & decided to go to a local spot overlooking the ocean to read a book, I parked my car under the trees some distance from the edge of the cliff which was not fenced off. This car my family & friends refused to drive as they felt something was weird when they had done so before but I had no problem before this. I was still seated in the car when someone yelled at me that my car was rolling towards the cliff, when I looked up I realised they were right. The car was an automatic & definitely in PARK with the handbrake on but it kept moving. I put my foot on the brakes with no result and I was pretty scared by then. My last try to stop it was to turn the motor on and put it into reverse, luckily for me it stopped the car going forward or I would have been history over the edge. The odd part about it all was that the ground where I was parked was not sloped towards to cliff but instead was quite level.
I had my car checked out by a mechanic who went right over it when I told them what had happened but they could not find any fault in the car at all and could not explain why it had happened.
These are not the only things that have happened but they are the worst ones I have experienced, other times have been harmless such as electric appliances starting up during the night when everyone is in bed sleeping & strange noises I cannot find a reason for or sensing that there is something about to happen or someone is nearby but in reality there is no one there. I experience déjà vu a lot & quite often if I think about a person I have not seen for some time they suddenly contact me without reason. I also pick up on other people’s emotions which is distressing for me as I do not know how to prevent it & quite often I will break down after it happens. I also have odd dreams that are related to a future event, I don’t know that it’s a future event until something happens & I recall my dream about it. I know there is something that causes all this but I do not know how to control or prevent it happening let alone understand why.
I did have a near death experience some time ago but these things were happening before that & it has only increased since my close call with death.

I got back into bed and they started to rattle again. This happened many times, to the point I got up and sat in the kitchen, were I could see all corners of the house.'my husband did not believe me, he said was imagination,until it happened to him? ..... many strange things started happening from that point. Many mornings we would get up and our TV would be on with no picture just fuzzy screen. The worst was one evening I was on the lounge with my husband who was asleep and I seen the showdow of a person in black I started screaming, my husband awoke in shock. I was hysterical he walked me to the kitchen to get some water when the light went of and I swear I could feel some thing next to'me. Many things like that happened, the ghost or thing did not like females as I could never get out of the front door yet my husband never had any trouble. We had my brother stay with us one weekend, who was 16 at the time and was sleeping on our lounge, when he come knocking on our bedroom door frightened to death by noises and the TV turning on. He ended up sleeping in our room. This happened with our married best friends, they would not sleep in our house either. One night we left our house at 1 in the morning and went and slept at my mother in laws. As we could here tapping in our bedroom, it seemed to be coming from the floor, but again it would stop if we got up to investigate. It would be fair to say that the house had a ghost.

Hmmmmm. Next there were steps down the hallway stopping outside our doors. I was VERY frightened. When I finally got up the courage to have a look there was no-one there.
Then there was the sound of dragging under the house! Terrified I went to my parents room. "Just the house noises." I was told.
Then - the sound of someone pushing on my window from outside!!!!!
Frantic, with no help from parents forthcoming I turned on the radio (thankfully I had 1 in my room) and the light.
On the radio (this night and 3 or 4 nights on) was Arlo Guthrie's "Alices Restaurant". It's been a favourite ever since but I never did discover the secret to all those weird noises. Reply

that seems to be the catalyst, along with a time element.
I have had some dreams that have been a signpost about things I needed to change in my life. Some that have saved my life, through being given the information ahead of time, Like how to avoid a serious car accident, when car headlights came towards me, driving late at night, would have been a head-on collision.
The next morning my mum rang to see if I was allright, she'd had a nightmare where she saw car headlights coming towards her, and some how "knew" it was me it referred to.
Several other Dreamscapes have had significant impact on my life. They seem to come in clusters, then none for years.
Could be a combination of coordinates of 'time and space'? In 'the zone'.as it were.
Quantum time allows time to move in both directions, both backward and forward. This can explain these cases. The brain has parts that as yet, have not been ascribed a purpose. May it interact with Anti-matter, which permeates the whole universe, maybe moving back and forward in time? Reply

I didn't like the man as he gave me the creeps & found out later in life he had sexually molested me when i was an infant - anyway i thanked him for visiting me & passing on his forgivness BUT i never wanted him to visit me ever again.

After that i felt lighter than i had for a very long time. Another time i was home by myself when i sensed i was being watched & knew there was a head peaking arounf the corner of the room checking on me to see if i was ok. I was my maternal grandmother & she was there with a light heart & just wanted to "be with me" which i felt comforted by so very much.

I have other "things that have happened but genuinely am blessed that i was chosen to be in contact with my loved ones. When i've gone to have readings done they phycics just say "why are you here - you can do this yourself" & i just smile & say i just wanted to check & see if i was on the right track. Since then i now trust my "gut" instinct - it never fails me like other humans have. Reply
