The Mix Up
Right after my grandfather died I started having dreams about him being alive and everything being like normal or better but then the dreams always turned. I would feel a violent angry presence that absolutely terrified me and for whatever reason I knew it was my grandmother. Quite frankly I had never felt that kind of fury. I was having the dreams every night and was barely getting any sleep because of them. It became so bad that I finally said something to my mother. I suspected as she did that it was just grief and moving away from home shortly after his death. I thought maybe if I talked about it that they would stop. They did not. A few days later I received a phone call from my mother saying that my sister was having similar dreams only hers were focused on me instead of Grandpa. Later we found that our eldest cousin was, also, having the dreams. A short time after we discovered this we found that there was a mistake with my grandfather and grandmothers tombstones. They had to be swapped. Once the error was corrected our dreams stopped. I guess Grandma did not appreciate the mix up.

Stella
I grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, not far from Amityville, but thats another story. We did have a ghost though, her name was Stella..
Story goes, her husband bought the land where our neighborhood sits,(cr.1770) The home was built at, or near were our house was. Stella her husband and son farmed the land until the War began. Her husband and son knew what they had to do and went off to fight with Gen. Washington. She vowed to wait for them until they returned. One day word came, as it did to many women, that her husband and only child had been killed fighting the British.
Stella however kept her vigil, each and every evening, sitting out front, rocking back and forth, waiting and watching, for "her men" to come riding over the hill on their way back home. She did this everyday until her death.
Late at night, Winter, Summer , Fall or Spring , when the weather is good, you can hear her rocking back and forth in her rocker...waiting....and watching for her boys to come home. But you can only hear this coming from the room above you, when you go upstairs to see whats making the noise, you hear it above you again, until you get to the top floor, then you hear it coming from the attic--theres nothing up there
It seems her loss also left her very bitter and may have left the area somewhat cursed. For the wives and mothers in the
neighborhood -this was a very BAD thing. 5 woman lost husbands early, 5 lost children early, always in their early teens, said to be her sons age.
She was always good to me, sometimes when I would cut the grass and the mower would run out of gas and I KNEW the gas can was on the other side of the yard, I would turn around and there it would be--creepy-- Id forget my car keys in an upstairs room, on my way to get them--Id find them sitting on the bottom step, scary, but convenient. When these things would happen I would always offer a "Thank you Stella" to keep on her good side. I think she watched out for me.-- My room was always cool in the summer (no a.c. in the house mind you) and warm in the winter.
During a spring cleaning session my sisters and I were hard at work. One of my sisters was eager to get done and go out with friends and cursed the fact we had work to do. The next thing we knew there was a scream! the entire bookshelf next to her emptied! every book came flying off the shelves!!! We all knew that was Stellas way of telling us to stop our
complaining and get to work.
One Saturday morning as my Mom tells it, my sisters and I were watching TV,(H.R. Puff & Stuff) when she noticed a column of smoke coming out of our laundry room. Thinking there was a fire and we would panic, she quietly investigated before getting us out. She opened the door to the laundry room, but could not see where the smoke was coming from. The washer and dryer were both running, but the room was bitterly cold, and this was in the summer time. Then the smoke slowly drifted from the laundry room to the adjacent bathroom, then it was gone. My mom sat back down and only told us
this story years later.
Theres so much more, but if dont get back to work my boss is going to get real scary .

Happy Halloween, and the next time something odd happens in YOUR home...say hello to your Stella for me.

Haunted Church
When I was younger I was told about an old church in the woods. It was never used, but the door and windows were always unlocked. The bible was always open to a certain scripture. One Halloween Night these boys decided to steal from this church. They went into the church started gathering up everything they could get. One of the boys got the bible and closed it. When he did the windows slammed shut and the door was locked. The next morning some people had came by the church and seen the boys car in front of the church. They went inside the church and everything was normal. The windows were open, everything was in its place, even the bible. It was back on that scripture. The boys were never seen again. My friends and I have been to this church. We never had the nerve to go inside, but we were kids back then.

Entity of a Young Woman
Our home in South Louisiana was built on the location of a previous plantation home site. At one time or another in the course of our lives growing up in the house our family of two parents and seven children all had encounters with the same entity of a young woman with very long hair wearing a long flowing gown. We were never afraid of her and just considered her a part of the household. It is odd that we really never spoke of her while growing up in the house as children. However, as adults all remember similar experiences. Our mother had the most encounters of all.

Haunted Louisiana House
We moved to Louisiana several years ago and the house we moved into turned out to be haunted. We were never told what had happened in the house until we moved out after three months because I could not stay there any longer. I honestly felt that if I stayed there I would die. We had been there for about a week when I started feeling as if someone was in the house when I knew I was alone. After about two weeks I got up one night to go to the bathroom and as I opened our bedroom door I saw a woman standing in the hall by the bathroom door. When I called out to my husband she suddenly disappeared. My husband told me it must have been a reflection from a headlight or something outside. This went on for several weeks. Each time I felt more and more disturbed by this but since I was the only one that saw her I said it must just be my imagination until my youngest daughter who was 3 at the time asked us who the lady was that cried at night. When we asked her what she meant she said, "The pretty lady that cries and has blood on her dress!" About a week later about 2 in the morning I heard a noise in the bathroom and thinking that one of my children was up sick I got up and went to check on them. When I passed the bathroom I heard a noise in there so I opened the door and their was blood everywhere and the woman was on the floor with a tall man standing over her holding a long butcher knife. I screamed and they disappeared. My husband came running in and I told him what I had seen. He searched the house and found nothing except in the bathroom we found a thin line of what looked like fresh blood in the shape of a V. We moved out the next day and when I took the key back to the owners of the house (an older couple in their 70s) and told them what had happened they said that no one ever stayed there very long.

Slave Auction Haunting
When I was ten my older brother took me to an old missionary church called Whetlock. It was around midnight. They told me that people have heard strange things there but I didnt believe them. At first I thought they were playing around but my brother was just as scared as I was. We heard chains shaking and babies crying and women screaming. The car would not start and we couldnt open the doors (not like I wanted to any way). We went back on our way to church and we stopped to pick up one of my grandparents friends . She lives near the church and told us how back before the civil war that slaves were auctioned off next to the church and that when slaves would have children sometimes the babies would be put to death in front of there moms to try and stop the slaves from reproducing.

Lamp Turns Itself On
I turned a lamp off in a room and as I walked out of the room it turned itself back on. The light switch was the type you twist.

Thanksgiving Visitor
The only thing that Ive really seen was after my grandpa died, my grandmother came to have Thanksgiving at my sisters. In every picture of my grandmother there was this bright light beside her. This only happened in the pictures with her, none with anyone else.

Relocation Incident
I was walking down the street to my house. It was dark and there was no side walk so I was using the yellow breakdown line to keep me out of the ditch. I was coming around a sharp corner when I looked up and saw a GMC pickup coming straight at me. I closed my eyes and put my arms out. I opened them thinking i must be dead. I was standing 3 feet off the road in the grass. I turned to see the guy stop, I waved at him that I was ok and he drove off. I still have no idea how I got off the road.

Alma Mater Ghost
This is actually my sisters story. It is taken as a given that my alma mater, Deshler High School in Tuscumbia, Alabama is haunted by the ghost of a woman who donated the property. My sister and two classmates were asked to deliver some materials to the Winston Home, an antebellum mansion in the center of the school and the home of the aforementioned ghost. All three entered and after a brief period in the house, they encountered a semi-transparent woman sitting in a rocking chair in a corner of the room. They all fled and one girl actually transferred to another school a short period later. Although Ive sometimes had my doubts, my sister still sticks to her version of events over 10 years later.

Mothers Reassurance
My 11 year old daughter was at AR Childrens Hospital about to have a tumor removed from her head and I saw my deceased mother walking the hallways. It was a sign to me that she was there for me and my family, especially my daughter who she was very close to. I knew all was going to be o.k.

Flying Pennies
I lived in a genuine haunted house for about six years. Pennies would fly over the shower curtain, toys would make noise without anyone (in body) playing with them. The ghosts liked to talk in the middle of the night.

Radio Mystery
We used to hear a radio playing in our trailer house late at night. There was no radio on anywhere in the house. The room where the music came from was always cold and it always felt like something was watching you in the room.

Swoosh!
One evening I was cooking dinner. The boys were home playing playstation in the youngest ones bedroom. I was browning meat for chili and felt an overwhelming presence behind me, thinking it was one of the boys sneaking up on me(as they were prone to do), I turned around and felt a kind of swoosh, only to find that there was no one there. Immediately I turned off the burner and walked down the hallway and both boys were still sitting in the floor playing on the playstation.

Moving Kitchen Objects
I used to babysit in a home in Atlanta Georgia. You could watch objects move in the kitchen (especially if they were not safe for children) and hear foot steps going from room to room down the hallway. Cold breezes often accompanied the footsteps.

Ghostly Prankster
A house we once lived in had a spirit that liked to pull pranks on everyone, like locking the door when someone would go outside. I would hear a knock at the door and it would be my mom, dad or a sibling, but when I opened the door it wasnt locked at all and I told them it wasnt, naturally they didnt believe me. I thought this was kind of funny so I begin to have little one sided conversations with my invisible friend. I even asked him to stop locking the doors cause everyone was starting to blame me for that one, and no one got locked out any more. Then one night after everyone had gone to bed I decided to clean up the kitchen to surprise my mom the next day. We had carpeting in our kitchen which was drenched from someone spilling some water in front of the stove. I was barefooted and standing on the wet carpet when I grabbed a butter knife, one end had slid underneath the edge of the stove. When I grabbed it a serge of electricity went through me and I couldnt let go. I felt someones arms grab me around the waist and pull me away from the stove. When I turned to thank them there was no one there. After that my invisible friend seem to have shall I say "vanished?" He was no longer around. No more pranks or sounds. One day while everyone else had gone out for the afternoon a friend came by to visit. We were sitting in the living room talking when an old car pulled up in the driveway. A tall elderly man got out and came to the door. He told me he use to live there and would like to look around. I told him he could look around outside that I couldnt invite him in at the time. He smiled and said that was fine. I closed the door and told my friend that "the old man that use to live here is dead, he had been murdered by his wife." Just seconds later we looked out the window and both he and the car was gone. Nothing strange or out of the norm ever happened in that house again.

Shoulder Touch
One time when I was babysitting, I went out on the carport for some reason (I was at their house) to look at some kittens, I think. I felt someones hand on my shoulder, and I jumped (it was night), but when I turned around no one was there.

Balloon Boy
When I was in the 2nd grade, about 1976, I was lying in my mom and dads bed waiting for my mom to get out of the bathroom and come tuck me in. I was looking out of their bedroom door toward the door that led to our garage. All of a sudden a figure of a little boy in a cap carrying balloons came through that door. I couldnt see any features only a faint white shape, but I could tell it was a boy. He was walking directly toward where I was and I started crawling up closer to the headboard. Just as he got to the door of the bedroom, my mom opened the bathroom door and the little boy disappeared. I told her what had happened because she could tell I was really scared. We later found out that the door he came from had been an old utility company and my father had replaced the glass with paneling. I am now 38 years old and can still remember that night like it was yesterday!

Eerie House Sickness
I went in a house in Little Rock several years ago with the idea of renting it. The realtor showed me through the place and didnt act as if anything was wrong, but I was sick as a dog the entire time. Outside I was fine, so I went back in the house and got the strong feeling that if I moved into that house I would die. I left.

Rubber Ball
At my mothers house in Virginia, I had just gotten into bed upstairs and turned the light off. Within a couple of minutes I heard this loud thump so I turned the light on and there was this rubber ball laying in the floor that came from nowhere. When I picked it up and dropped it, it bounced 2-3 times. So I dont know how it got there and why did it only hit the floor and didnt bounce?

Funeral Visitor
I used to work at a local funeral home for ten years which had a regular visitor who was a ghost. She would come in and sit in the chapel where a funeral service was to take place the next day. She always had on the same salt and pepper suit and black pillbox hat. All of us there saw her at one time or another.

Upside-down Television Picture
I have had many bizarre experiences! The most memorable was when my sister lived in a haunted house. Every time I went to visit her SEVERAL unexplainable things would happen. One of the most bizarre things was when we were watching T.V. and the picture would slowly turn itself upside down.

Death Warning
My mother-in-law sat on my bed and "prepared" me for my own mothers death. She passed away in 1985 and my mother passed away in 1993.

Death Warning
Well, my mamaw was an overweight (jolly), sweet, loving, and very religious lady. She used to sit on the side of her bed and rock & pray off and on all hours of the night. When I was a little girl I would sleep in the bed with her and papaw or if I was sleeping in another room she would come in that room in the middle of the night and sit on the edge of my bed and pray over me. Sometimes it would wake me up. It was the most comforting feeling ever. I am 32 now but she was diagnosed with Alzheimers shortly after my papaw passed away in 1996 and my aunt kept her at home to care for her until she passed in 2002. Shortly after her passing I would be asleep and wake up to my bed indenting downward like something or someone sitting on the edge of my bed. I would kinda of roll toward that dent. At first I thought it was my cat that only weights like 5lbs, so I slept with my door shut. A few nights later my bed dented down again right on the edge like someone was sitting on it...It had not done so in a long time but for a while there it was and that went on for about a year or two off and on. I was not ever uneasy and I am a scary person. It was always comforting to me when it would wake me up! I love and miss you mamaw.

Moms Goodbye
One month before my Mom passed away she came to me and NO I was not dreaming. She had been in the hospital and she looked like she did when she was 29 or 30 and she had a new leg. She told me goodbye.

Doorbell Ghosts
We just moved into our new home. I have a doorbell that rings only on Sundays. I returned one set of doorbells and the clerk said you must have a GHOST. Even with the new door bells it still rings on Sundays and no one is at the door.The land where our house is sitting has a long history of bad things happening. Maybe we do have ghosts or spirits.

Previous Home Owners
We lived in a house that had only one previous owner, an older couple who were both deceased. One night the water in the shower just turned on all by itself. Another time while I was standing on the front porch the door bell rang. On one occasion the volume on the TV kept going up all by itself and I would occasionally see an older woman (out of the corner of my eye) in a white gown, walk out of the kitchen door while I was sitting in the living room.

Funeral Dream
I dreamed I was at a funeral with my mother...and the next day she was dead. The worst part was later thinking about it and realizing that I never remembered seeing the face of the deceased person at the funeral.

Cementery Orbs
My late husband had a friend that committed suicide when we were still young. Before my husband died, he would be around. I saw him one night watching me while I was putting things away in the closet and several of our friends throughout the years felt his touch on their shoulder and he helped one friend into the house one night. Plus, my sister and I have snapped photos in cemeteries at midnight, full moon and no moon, and have gotten orbs.

Back Scratches
I was visiting with a friend once a long time ago. I was upstairs in her room and I felt this feeling of being watched. Everywhere I looked there was nothing there. I could at times hear someone calling my name. As I got up to go out of the room I felt as if I could not move and the door slammed shut in front of me. I screamed for my friend.She could not open the door and I couldnt either. We both became scared. I felt something scratch down my back and it felt like liquid fire. When I finally got the door open we looked at my back and I had four parallel scratches down the center of my back. I have never been back to that house.

Parents Vigil
I had been sick for a couple of months and my mom and dad came to me in a dream telling me they would take me to the hospital. I went the next day and found out I had colon cancer. I am convinced parents watch over their kids after they are gone from this earth!

Lantern Ghost
One night my husband was filming me on the front porch playing around, and out of no where a person wearing a white shirt carrying, what we think was, a lantern. The person walked quickly down the hill into our horse pasturer. They disappeared in the horse pasturer as quickly as they came. We sold the house and the next resident who bought the home had the same incident happen to them! Scary!!!!
Alexia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Running Feet
While my husband and I were sleeping one night I thought I heard small footsteps running from the living room toward the kitchen, which was right outside my bedroom. At first I thought it was one of my children so I got out of bed and checked and they were all sound asleep in bed. When I came back to bed my husband asked who was that running around the house? That was so scary because not only did I hear it, so did he. After that when I would hear sounds like dishes breaking and nothing was broken I would just put my blanket over my head and try to ignore it. We have since moved and no longer have a problem.

Happy Mother-In-Law
My Mother-In-Law, (BLESS HER SOUL), always liked to be the first one to tell you good news. She hadd always wanted my ex-husband (HER BABY) to work for the phone, gas company or post office. About one year after she passed away she visited us one evening while I was cooking dinner. When she would visit us I wouldnt let her help me, so she would stand and talk to me from the other side of the island by the stove while I cooked. I looked up (ONE YEAR AFTER SHE DIED) and she was just standing there talking and smiling like it was something very good. Now I could not understand what she was telling me but I know it was making her very happy. My Husband came home that night and told me he had gotten that position with the post office.

Premonitions
I sometimes know when something is coming, like very bad weather, death or money shortages. It sometimes makes me very sad. I try to pass it off and not think of it.

CNA Dread
I once worked in a nursing home as a CNA. When I first started working there, I felt like something was hovering over me when I entered a certain terminally ill patients room. It was very scary, my heart raced and I couldnt wait to exit his room and dreaded to re-enter. He only lived about a week after I started working there.

Shadowy Figure
My sister and I share a story we still frequently talk about. When we were kids sharing bunk beds we woke up at the same time and saw a shadowy figure standing in the door way. My sister asked me if I saw it, I said yes then crawled down to her bed and we turned our heads. (If you knew how much my sister and I used to fight, you know it was bad when we agreed to share a twin bed). The next morning we told our mom and she took separated us and asked us what we saw. We both described the exact same thing. We arent entirely sure it was a ghost-but it was an experience weve never forgotten.

Cresent Hotel
My mom and I went to Eureka Springs two weeks ago and went on a "Ghost Tour" at the Cresent Hotel. We could tell there was something there with us, especially down in the basement. We took a lot of pictures and caught some very interesting things on camera.

Old Hospital
I worked in an old hospital years ago. One night after leaving the cafeteria, I stepped off the elevator onto the third floor, the air was ice cold, (it was middle of summer, no A/C in this area). I had the feeling someone was behind me but no one was there. When I entered the new wing of the hospital the cold was gone. I stepped back into the hall of the old wing and the cold was gone.

Mr. George
I was visiting my parents and pre-teenaged sister in Mississippi over 30 years ago. On the day I was to leave I was awakened by the sense that someone was yanking my pillow out from under my head. It happened several times, I was not dreaming. Shaken, I got up and went to the kitchen where my mom was making breakfast. When I told her what had happened she said, "Oh, thats just Mr. George." She told me of several things they had experienced: A bowl of grapes flying across the room, a clothes hanger that spun on a doorknob by itself, a bedroom door that slammed and locked by itself, only to swing open by itself after my mom stopped trying to open it (my sister was inside), a barstool that fell over by itself only to stand itself up with no one near. Mr. George had died in the house several years earlier. Many people claimed to have seen him in a tree in the front yard.

Baby Clothes
My daughter died at four months old, adn all her things were all packed up in a box thenext day, (my mother thought it would be best), and that I could go through them at a later time. it was just after everyone had left the house and a couple of days after her funeral, things of hers started showing up in the laundry, a blanket with the towels, her crib sheet with the bedding, things like that. I know it all was packed up. We had given away all the baby food that was in the house, I went to the store and when I came home there would be a jar in my sacks. I just put it all down that maybe she was telling us she was warm and clean and being fed, not to worry. We did move from that house and it has not happened since.

Firemen
I woke up about 2 :00am and there were 4 or 5 fire fighters in my home, only they werent "really" there. The next day a lady downstairs said the landlord told her someone in my apartment died there from a fire many years ago.
