Thanks for your continued input everyone, great stories! :D

I would never have heard these tales had i not been on this site, thats why its so great! :wink:

Heres another one from me:

3. I was about 15 years old and me and my mates were staying at a friends house while their parents were away for the weekend, we were all watching a movie at the time because everyone was too skint to buy any booze and we were sat in the living room. We had never stayed at this particular friends house before.

I was at at the end of a very long sofa, everyone was watching the movie and as i was watching i saw something out of the corner of my eye, i turned to my right and i as i looked round i saw a huge black figure, literally about 2 metres away from me walk through the wall and continue on through some glass doors that lead out to the back garden. Though it was quite close it was incredibly black, a total absence of detail, like a big solid shadow. I would describe it as being about 6 feet tall and from its outline it looked like a man wearing a long black coat and a hat, the face was completely obscured. This all happened so quickly i couldnt believe what i was seeing, it was so close!!

I genuinely couldnt speak and was a bit shocked by what i had just seen.After about five minutes i asked (as casually as i could, being a teenager i didnt want to look like too much of an idiot in front of my mates!) if anyone had just seen anything and explained that i just saw something fucking weird!!

Of course no one believed me and everyone took the piss for the next hour or so (i expected nothing less!!).

The next morning we all woke up, in the kitchen the kid whose house it was took me aside and asked me exactly what i had seen. I described it in more detail than i had the previous night. He then said that it was kind of embarrassing but the reason he had asked us all to stay round was because he was scared of being alone in the house, he said that he had seen that figure as well in the mirrors in one of the bedrooms and that it really scared the shit out of him.He also said that he was always seeing little dark flashes out of the corner of his eye when he was in the house. He then begged me not to tell any of the guys bacause it was really embarrassing!!

The figure i saw was so real and really sticks in my mind because it was so close. :wink:

There we are more weirdness, a few more to follow soon. In the mean time keep posting your stories, thats 3 shadowy figures i have seen so far, maybe we can find some links... :wink:

i was at my friends house sitting on the couch facing the kitchen and saw a girl who was blond and had a striped shirt and white pants on. she walked across the kitchen and disappeared. when she was walking she was flickering on and off. a minute or so after, while i was still rubbing my eyes, my pager went off and it was my friend who lived in the basement apt. downstairs. so i called her and she was freaking out saying, 'you'll never guess what just happened', and i said, 'you saw her too?', and of course she freaked out more because i said i just saw a girl walk across the kitchen and disappear. she said the girl had peeked around the courner at her.
i said did she have blond hair?...and she said yes and had a striped sweater on, and i said and white pants?...and so i knew i didn't hallucinate because of the way we decribed the ghost to each other.

another time at a boyfriends house, i was in the basement and saw a shadow figure walk into the wine cellar. he had an old-fashioned brim-hat on.
when i went upstairs i told my boyfriend and he said his grandfather, who was dead, used to wear a hat like that all the time and that his parents used to make wine and give some to his grandfather...

OK here goes. I've had quite a few experiences with this in my life. I don't have time to write about them all at the moment but I will certainly try to add to this when I can.

I am convinced without a doubt that two houses I have lived in were haunted. The first was where I was living with my parents from the age of 4 - 19. The other I was where I was living with friends from 18 - 20.

At my parents house, I often had a very strong feeling of being watched, even when no one else was around. Even when I had friends round, there were a couple of times where they were in a room on their own for a while and when I came back in they were a little shaken and said they had the feeling that something else was in the room and they felt someone was watching them.

I can also remember times when I had been in a room on my own and literally completely froze with fear, with the feeling of something else being in the room. Its like the air felt electrically charged and I could even hear heavy breathing in the same room as me.

There were times when we heard what sounded like someone running up the stairs and banging on the walls in the middle of the night. This was heard by all of us but on checking, no one was there.

There were times when the shower would turn itself on in the middle of the night.

One night I was in a back room playing on the computer. My mum was the only other person in the house and she was in the living room watching TV. I heard my room's door open and footsteps walking up to me. I was concentrating on the game so didn't bother to turn around, I just assumed it was my mum. I heard the foot steps walk right up to me and I then turned round to say 'hi mum' but there was no one there. I panicked, cried and ran to my mum who was in the living room.

Another experience I had when I was about 11, just after my mum's dad had died (he used to smoke about 70 cigs a day - which may be relevant), I had a friend sleeping over. We were sat up late in my room talking and we heard a smash come from the kitchen. Me and my friend decided to investigate and went into the kitchen and a glass had smashed all over the worktop. We cleared it up and went back to our room. The next morning we were in the kitchen, my mum came down and we explained about the smashed glass. My mum explained that she had also had a very strange experience that night. She woke in the middle of the night, with a very strong smell of cigarette smoke, then she heard a cracking sound coming from her glass next to her bed. She saw the glass crack about 1cm from the top all the way around the glass. She then went up and got the glass to show us. I've never seen anything like it before, it was a perfect cut all the way around the glass, where you could lift the top off or place it back on.

Me, my girlfriend and three other mates moved into a house back in 1998 and the whole time we were living there we experienced strange things and these were usually witnessed by 2 or more people. We often heard footsteps walking up and down the stairs and also in the kitchen.

One night a load of us were watching TV in the living room and we saw a large glass ash-tray move off of the table and fall on the floor.

One night my girlfriend woke me up with the quilt pulled over our heads. She said there was a dark figure stood at the end of the bed. I had a look and saw nothing there, calmed her down and she eventually fell back to sleep. The next moment I woke, I looked towards the end of the bed and saw for myself and dark silhouette of someone stood at the end of the bed. I was completely overcome with fear and pulled the covers back up over our heads and woke my girlfriend up and we basically just led there crapping ourselves until we could fall back to sleep.

One night about 4am me and my girlfriend were woken by what sounded like the furniture being moved around downstairs. She asked me to go and investigate in case it was thieves. I really didn't want to go but as I left my bedroom, my friend was coming out of his room and he too had been told by his girlfriend that he had to investigate. Anyway, me and my mate walked down into the living room and everything was fine, we walked into the kitchen and the washing machine was sat right in the middle of the room. It was even quite a struggle for the both of us to shimmy the machine back into its place in the wall, which was about 2 meters away.

I came home from work one day and found my girlfriend sat in the living room looking quite shaken talking to my house mate. I asked what was going on and they explained to me that she had just got home from work and went up to our bedroom but just before she opened the bedroom door she could hear someone opening and closing cupboard draws. She assumed it was me went into the room but the room was empty. Just as she was explaining this to me, another house mate came into the house with his brother, they both ran upstairs to his room and a few moments later he came back down and was looking for something in the living room. While he was doing this, his brother was still on the landing of the stairs waiting for him, a few minutes later his brother came running down the stairs into the living room and explained that while he was stood at the top of the stairs he could hear someone opening and closing draws in his brothers room, he went in to see who was in there but the room was empty... as soon as he said this we all looked at each other and ran up the stairs into all of the rooms and checked everywhere, under every bed, in every cupboard but we could not find anyone up there! Also, neither of them knew anything about what had just happened before hand, as they didn't get in until just after my girlfriend had finished explaining what had happened to her.

Anyway, that is pretty much all of the strange ghostly experiences I have had. There are a few more that close friends of mine have told me but I'll have to go into them another time.

This isn't my opinion but I thought I'd present some recent scientific research I heard about a while ago -

Since scientists generally tend not to believe in anything that cannot be explained, like the supernatural happenings, some of them have embarked on the mission of proving the (non-)existence of ghosts and other Poltergeist phenomena. Believing that the source of spectral sights or other cases of abnormal presences lies in the perturbation of the human brain by external factors, such as electromagnetic fields (EMFs) or low-frequency sounds, the scientists set out to prove their theory.

Michael Persinger, a neuroscientist from the Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, thinks that electrical equipments, from power grids to clock radios, somehow affect human imagination via their generated EMFs. There was a case of a 17-year-old girl who suffered a small form of brain damage when she was born, and who claimed she was being regularly visited by the Holy Spirit at night. Next to her headboard, 10 inches (25 cm) from her head, there was a clock radio. When Persinger removed it, the visits ceased.

Relying on the same premise, a psychologist at Goldsmiths, University of London College in London, Christopher French, developed a “haunted” room, in order to test the impact of EMF and infrasound on human imagination. He had EMF pulses up to 50 microteslas, as well as infrasound waves generated in the room, and invited 79 people – previously tested in regard to their beliefs and imagination – to spend some time there. Unfortunately, the experiment couldn't prove beyond all doubt that the sightings and abnormal manifestations were linked to EMFs or infrasound.

“Most people reported at least some slightly odd sensation, such as a presence or feeling dizzy, and some reported terror, which we hadn't expected,” shared French. “People are mistaking their attribution, feeling a product of their own mental processes as something that's taking place in the real world. Anything that can lead to making your mental events more similar to events that take place – a vivid imagination, for example – will make it more difficult to distinguish between the two.” It would be funny, though, if one day a ghost would switch off the EMF-generating computer of a dazzled French, claiming it made its teeth ache.

This is one from my sister in law in Scotland.
Her grandson was told by his parents never to go into their bedroom and never to go down stairs if he got up early in the morning,one morning when his mother came out of her bedroom he was sat at the top of the stairs,she asked him what he was sat there for,he said "You told me not to go down stairs" So she said"That's a good lad" and he said "You told me not to go in your room but why are those other people allowed in?" she said "What people?" He said"All those people just come out of the spare room and go into your room" She looked at him funny and said "What do they look like" He said" Just people" She said "What type of clothes do they have on?" He said "Old fashioned clothes" She got some books and found some pictures of people and he pointed out that the clothes where from about the 1900s. she asked him if he was scared and he said he wasn't so she just left at that,apparently he sees them all the time and it doesn't bother him at all.The sister in law shivers when he tells her about them. The kid is 5 now but he started seeing them when he was about 3 years old.
How can a child of that age make that up, he doesn't know what ghosts are?

Thanks amigos, great stories! :D

Shee,good to hear from you, your story reminds me of one my grandmother told me about seeing her father at the window of her bedroom, long after he had died, weird!! :wink:

Heres one of my other odd encounters:

2. I never knew my father, no one ever spoke about him, never mentioned his name, luckily i am quite a resourcefull geezer and i tracked him down when i was about 14. Turns out he is a great bloke and the problem lied with the folks i was living with, but thats another story.

Anyway, once i had found him, he asked if i would like to come and stay with him for the weekend, this was a great idea, although a little bit daunting as i would be meeting the whole side of the family that i had no idea about.

He lived in a large house with lots of spare rooms, so it would be no problem for me to stay.

My father made me feel very welcome and i had a great time learning about everybody in the family, we stayed up for ages talking about things, finally we decided to call it a night and went off to bed. My father showed to the spare room at the top of the stairs and went off to get some sleep.

I noticed that the room i was staying in seemed to have been converted and that there was a tiny door about 2 feet high in one of the walls for access to the remaining loftspace, this struck me as a little creepy, but i was tired so i didnt give it much thought. As i layed in bed i felt myself slowly drifting off to sleep, then i found myself suddenly awake again, i looked over at the clock and saw it was about 2 hours later, about 3 in the morning.

As i lay awake i started to hear whistling, one of those cheery little whistles with no paticular tune, it was very faint but i could definitely hear it. I laid listening to the whistle wondering who was still awake. I must explain that the only people in the house were me, my Father and his wife. The whistle seemed to be getting louder, then i started to hear footsteps. I could hear some one walking very slowly up the stairs. They were made of wood and creaked with everystep, as did all the floorboards on the landing outside my room. It was at this point that i began to feel a little scared, the footsteps and the whisling were getting closer with every step as my room was at the top of the stairs.!!

I layed listening to every step as it got closer, finally the steps were just outside my door at the top of the stairs, then everything stopped, no whistling, no footsteps, nothing. I layed paralysed listening for any sound, as there was no way anyone could walk around on the landing without making a noise. but still nothing, i must have stayed awake for as long as i could but eventually i fell back to sleep and the next thing i knew it was morning.

The next day i said nothing, i didnt want my Father to think i was weird or anything, i had just met him!! He exlained that him and his wife were going to have to go out to take care of some business (they had their own business and were very busy), i actually found the whole meeting my Dad for the first time thing a bit overhwealming and really fwelt liek having a bit of time to myself so i agreed to stay in the house while they went out to do what they had to do.

After they left i chilled out watching TV and playing music, gave my Mum a call to let her know how things were going and generally relaxed a bit. A few hours went by and i was sitting in the living room watching TV. The front door to the house was just off of this room as was the kithchen. I walked into the kitchen to make a cup of tea, as i was waiting for the kettle to boil i heard the front door open and looked through the living room to the front door to see someone walk quickly past the living room door. I yelled out 'hi' and asked if anyone wanted a cup of tea thinking it was my father, but no one answered. I shouted again but nobody answered me. I thought maybe my Father had just run in and gone straight to the bathroom (you know whats its like if your driving and you really need a piss!!), so i carried on making tea, waiting for him to appear, 10 minutes went past, nothing happened, not a sound in the house. At this point i was a bit confused so i went to the bathroom door, it was closed and i kncked and asked if my Father was ok, i listened for a reply but heard nothing. I pushed the door and found it was open, inside the bathroom was empty!

By now i was a little freaked and went to check the front door. It was still locked from the inside, the keys in the lock. Outside the drive was empty. I knew that i saw someone walk past the door earlier, so now i was really freaked out. The only way i would be happy was to go and check everyroom in this large and unfamiliar house for whoever i had seen!

Cautiously i checked every room, it was like something out of a horror movie, every door i opened i wodered what i was going to find. eventually i had checked the whole house, nobody was home! I went back downstairs and sat in the living room wondering what had just happened, i watched a little TV to distract myself , about 20 minutes later i started to hear the whislting again coming from upstairs, very faint but definitely their, i started to head towards the stairs when suddenly i heard a car pull up in the driveway, my father was home!

Again, i didnt want to seem odd so i didnt say anything. Later that night we were talking and i decided to tell my father what had happened, he listened and nodded, then he told me that when they bought this house they had learned that its former occupant was an old man who had actually died in the house. My father said he to had heard a few odd noises and seen flashes of things out of the corner of his eye as well!!!

Later i met some cousins who had told me they were always scared to sleep in this house as they heard things too, they said that one night they had awoken to find one of the little access hatches has been unlocked and opened in the night and since then they always asked to sleep downstairs!!

Weirdly that night i felt a lot happier going to sleep int hat room once i knew what i had heard the previous night.Later in the night i heard the whisling again, but no footsteps, i felt a feeling of immense calm and had a trouble free nights sleep! :wink:

So theres story number two, more to come, anyone else?

since we're on ghosts thought that might give someone a laugh.

My only experience with what i could consider "ghostly" experience is when i was young, 9 or 10 i forgot, back when we were still living in the rural area where there was no indoor plumbing and to use the toilet you have to go to the community toilet in middle of nowhere. Needless to say this was a poor country electricity is rare and we were still using oil lamps to get around. Anyway it was around 9-10pm when my sister needed to use the restroom so she had me and my mother accompany her using our one and only flashlight to get there. The toilet was away from town in middle of a rice paddy fields, on our way back we saw someone on the rice paddy and we thought wow someone working so late? but as we get closer we wanted to see who it was, in the rural community everybody know everybody so we thought to say hi. When we got close enough to shine the flashlight on whoever it was there was nothing nobody there, at the time we thought oh well it must have just been our eyes playing tricks, but as we keep walking home i forgot if it was my mother or my sister turn around and we all look and see the figure again on the rice paddy, needless to say we walk a pretty fast pace home afterward. We never saw anything like that again any night after that so if it was an illusion it was a one time thing.

Nice snake, thanks. I always say that who are we to judge what another has seen as real!!! Yeah I have a few, I can explain some of them away rationally but a lot I can't. I posted this on here a little while back
Ive seen many ghosts over the years, maybe they weren't ghosts but thats what I put them down too. None have frightened me apart from the very first. I was 7 years old, I hadn't long been in bed, my mother used to leave the hall light on for myself and my brother. We were in separate bedrooms and were calling out to each other playing eye spy. Above the bedroom doors was a small window that let light into the hallway. I remember giggling thinking my brother will never get what it was I was looking at, I turned over in bed and looked towards my door, my grandmother, grandfather and uncle were in the 'window' at the top of my door waving to me, I could see they were talking, lips moving but I could here no sound only my brother calling out in response to our game. I couldn't understand why I could see the hall light behind them.... I couldn't understand that I could see them yet the door was open and I couldn't see their legs... so yes I almost :censored: myself and hid under the covers lol Realy!!!

Funny thing is, I always thought of that as the first and after I posted it on here I had a memory of my uncle that was in the above story coming to me while I played with my dolls, a couple of weeks before this happened, I was playing on the flour and he was just there, I have no memory of him coming into the room, I looked up because I could smell smoke, not cigarette smoke, like wood burning or something and he was there sitting watching me, he smiled and said everything was alright now, I continued playing and thought nothing of it. I told my Mam later that day and she said I must have imagined it because he hadn't been to the house. A few days after that my Dad was asked to identify the body of my uncle, the police had been trying to trace us as he had died a week before. I had forgotten all about it until I pressed send for that message.. weird. I do think/believe a lot of it can be explained away BUT not all of it. Thanks snake, I enjoyed reading your post!
