    I swear, this will sound crazy but it is true.

    I used to live in an OLD house in our very historic town. The upstairs was renovated into an apartment. So one day I’m sitting on the couch watching some TV. To my right was the doorway to the bedroom. And if I turned my head I could see the other TV sitting in there up against the wall. So as I’m engrossed in the Ellen show I hear something making a rattling sound. I had a candle plate sitting on top of the TV in the bedroom with one of those really big three wick candles on top of it. The whole plate was rattling and moving. It seriously shimmied and rattled all the way off the top of the TV and fell to the floor. NOTHING else in that apartment moved. I ran out. lol

    The second time something happened I was sleeping and I use both my phone alarm, plus my bedside alarm to wake up. So apparently the next morning I woke up only to find that either my alarm clock didn’t go off, or I turned it off, and my cell phone was gone from the bedside table. I found it in the middle of the kitchen floor (on the other side of the apartment) turned off. So freaky!

    It was in this same apartment too that my niece would never stay in the living room. She was lke 5 at the time. She told me she didn’t like it in there with that “man” in the room. That about gave me a heart attack!

    Oooooh, I love threads like this!  I recently joined a local paranormal investigation group I found on meetup.com so hopefully I can share some more interesting stories soon.  Nothing too scary has really happened to me unfortunately.  I remember when my oldest child was a toddler and he always played in our furnished basement.  He wasn’t talking very well at the time, but he was constantly staring up into this one corner up in the ceiling, pointing & laughing and babbling away at “something.”  It was very weird.  And in that same house we had a motion detector light set up in the dining area (former owners did that for some reason).  You could be absolutely still and sometimes it would flicker on its own.  If I was upstairs I would swear I’d hear someone calling my name, but nobody else would be home but me & him (or his dad would be all the way down in the basement, and he said it wasn’t him).

    My father is a non-believer in anything paranormal/supernatural, the biggest skeptic in the world.  But after my mom passed away in our family home where he still lives, he had some strange experiences.  He was in bed and woke up suddenly to the feeling that someone was laying next to him, breathing quietly.  To see my dad get kind of quiet and unsure when he tells this story, makes me wonder……but I’ve never had any experience with my mom coming back to tell me something.  I wish she would though.  

    ETA:  My house with the basement was only 7 years old and the folks we bought it from were the first and only other tenants.  Weird.

    When I was about 15 I stayed over at a friend’s house to keep her company while her parents were away. So it was just us two in the house, her three dogs were outside. We were sitting in her bedroom just watching a movie when we heard footsteps directly above us (there’s an upstairs hallway above her bedroom). We paused the movie, got super freaked out and then decided it was just the old house being old and creaky. But then they started again, much louder, and very obviously FOOTSTEPS not just a house creaking. We grabbed a baseball bat and ran upstairs to check it out, but there was nothing there. We stayed awake all night after that, and heard it twice more.

    Most terrifying night of my life.

    @AudzinLuv: Ohhhh, that last one about your dad gave me goose bumps! My grandmother was at home when my grandfather passed away at the hospital late one night. She swears that the doorbell rang out of nowhere and when she got up and looked outside, no one was there. About a minute later, the phone rang and it was my uncle telling her my grandfather had passed. I think it was his one final stop before heading up to the big blue. :o)

    I was also sitting in the library once at college. Not one other person was around me. There was a guy on the computers way across the room, but that was it. Where I was sitting my back was to the micro-film rooms. I opened one of my books to start studying and I heard someone whisper my name. It sounded like they were right next to my ear. The hair on my neck stood up and I turned around at break neck speed to find….. nothing. I never went back.

    When we bought our house, we started renovating the master bathroom and one bedroom to make a nursery.  The Master bedroom, master bath, and the nursery are all connected, and there’s no way to get to nursery without going through the master bedroom and bath.  Anyway, weird things started happening after the renovations were completed, and we had Addie.  We have her baby monitor on all the time, and we’ve heard voices and singing over it; you can turn off the monitor and still hear the singing coming from her room, but walk into the room and it’s totally quiet.  A couple of times I’ve heard my name.  Addie also has this lights/music projector toy strapped to the side of her crib which has turned on three different times when nobody was even in the room.  A book fell off her dresser one time, when there was no way it should have moved. 

    Last night I was changing Addie in her room with the lights off, and I heard footsteps in the bathroom, coming toward the nursery.  I saw a shadow figure, and thought it was my husband, so I started talking to him.  He wasn’t even upstairs!  He was downstairs, asleep on the couch.  It freaked me out, but I just remind myself that this ghost has never done anything to harm us; it’s a friendly ghost, lol!

    @Mrs.tobe: I can believe that.  

    I named the ghost at my mom’s place “Casper”.  We had a rocking chair that was rocking by itself and I looked over and said “Casper, stop it” or something like that, and it stopped, lol.  He would find ANYTHING you asked, flashlights, my son’s pacificers he’d lose, etc and put it where you’d looked DOZENS of times already.  We would also smell vanilla pipe tobacco (no one smoked pipes) or lilacs (in the dead of winter and NO ONE had that kind of perfume.)

    I’ve also SEEN a ghost before, so, yeah, totally believe in them.

    @Mrs. Spring:Ohhhh, seriously. I don’t want to go into the basement now! That gave me goose-bumps to the MAX! And you’re right, at least it’s a friendly one!

     

    @Zinzerena: It always happens when you’re least expecting it. It’s so disconcerting.

    @Mrs.tobe: OMG, now see, your experiences would scare the crap out of me because how can you logically explain that kind of stuff?  Things that are actually moved by unseen hands, whoa….

    @Soon2beeMrsM:  I bet if you looked your area up on meetup.com you might find some, who knows?  Thanks for making this thread! 🙂

    Back when I was in middle school I had a friend whose older sister was a photographer and she was setting out on a month long photography trip on the Appalacian trial by herself.  She was going to be on her own for a week and then was to meet up with her friend in Georgia. 

    Anyways.  She starts out on this trip and is taking all of her nature pictures (her pictures are amazing!).  She’s walking the trail but keeps getting this creepy feeling like someone is watching her, but she kind of brushes it off.  She goes three nights on her own and on the 4th day is just so creeped out because she keeps getting this weird feeling, so she hikes to the nearest town and catches a bus to meet up with her friend where they finish the trip together.

    When she returns a couple of months later she is in the darkroom processing her first couple rolls of film from her first couple of days she was by herself.  She hangs all of the pictures and steps out of the darkroom to get lunch as they dry and process.  When she walks back in the darkroom she’s immediately confused, gets closer to the photographs and sees that about 20 of them are of her SLEEPING!
