Having a ghost call me through a friends body and the friend knowing about the ghost whenever I hadn't told him a thing about it. I mean... that was weird. That in itself was the most strangest thing that has ever happened to me. Well that and the fact that when I got hit by a car I only received a hair line fracture on my leg. The fact it happened at night made it all the more strange that I would only get that little injury. Sorry for the short reply but I'm in a rush.

My family had two long stays in the army here in Leesville LA and we have stayed in several haunted houses awhile waiting for military housing. The house you mentioned I beleive was one of them. It was a house with many stories and many "feelings".

The strangest experience that ever happened to me was while I was investigating a famously haunted New England inn about 7 years ago. My group had exclusive access to the location from the innkeeper who was experiencing a variety of activity that appeared paranormal in origin, and the stories from guests and employees go back many years. We did capture some interesting audio and video, and I've no doubt that something strange is occurring at the inn and that it most certainly is haunted--defined as paranormal activity does occur at the location.

I was on the third floor and distinctly felt as if something showed up in the room. I said "Ohh baby!" as I just knew something was there. Suddenly what sounding like coins jingling or a zipper opening and closing really fast erupted from the air all around me. It showed up on audio--I have it posted on my Web site--and for all this time I was totally at a loss to explain it.


Just a few days ago, someone posted a response to the video (I have the original audio and video posted on youtube as well as on my Web site) explaining that it was bats! Yup, after seven years I finally found a logical explanation for the event: a colony of brown bats in between the ceiling and the roof of this haunted inn had been disturbed and let off a loud series of clicks.

Even though I was very excited to finally debunk this phenomena, I still get goosebumps when someone walks by jingling coins in their pocket.

I've had a variety of very strange--and probably paranormal--events happen to me in all my years of being a paranormal investigator, but this one still stands out even though there appears to be a logical explanation.

I'll add a pretty strange event that happened to me:

I was 14 years old. I owned a gigantic black iguana, and his cage was on my bedroom floor (Quite a big cage). One evening, around 7pm - I remember being extremely tired and so I walked into my room, turned off the light and also turned off one of the heat lamps on top of the cage in which the switch makes a loud click when turned off or on. After turning off the lights, I plopped down and sprawled out on my queen sized bed and passed out immediately. Here's where the strange part happens - I was awaken to a loud "click" and I slowly transited into an awaken state. During this transition, it felt like my whole body was pulsating and I could hear the vibrations in my ears with each pulse. When I woke up, I was in the middle of my bed in a fetal position and wondering what the hell happened. Then I noticed the heat lamp was back on.

I walked out my room and asked my mom if she came in and turned it on - she said no.

Here's another weird one that I remembered while typing up the last one.

I was around the same age, and again I went to sleep in my room. During my sleep, I had a weird "dream" that wasn't quite like a dream at all. I vividly remember that I had the sensation of floating in the middle of my living room while on my back (Same position when you lay on your back in bed, but floating). I could not see any objects nor move at all, but I had the distinct feeling around me that I was in the living room. During this time, I remember seeing "colored static" in front of me, kind of like the static on an unused channel on TV except it was a billion shades of color not black and white.

As I was "seeing" this, I distinctly remember seeing a swirl in the middle of my line of sight (I vividly remember that I also had the sensation of my eyes being closed the entire time, but yet I saw all this). This swirl began to move closer to my face and projected a tornado type of shape towards my forehead. This swirl touched the middle of my forehead, right above my brows - pretty much the spot where Hindu's have that red dot. During this time, it felt like something was being channeled into head and I had the same pulsating sensation in my last experience. The weird thing about it was that it wasn't frightening at all - it was very soothing and comforting. I had no fear or doubts as to what was going on. I remember coming back into consciousness and the whole thing was fading away. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling extremely rejuvenated - come to think of it, it felt like I was conscious through the entire event.

I know my last one sounds far out, in which it is but I promise you that I am not fabricating any of this. I have yet to figure out what that "dream" was all about. Hope you guys enjoyed it.

Astral projection-related stuff, though I can't say it is "paranormal" so much as AMAZING.

I still like that term though, so I'll use it. Maybe as I get deeper involved in the occult and less skeptical (if possible lolz) some more cool things will happen.

I woke up in the middle of the night (toilet urge) but the first thing I knew was my body was vibrating all over, I got up quickly thinking it was some sort of small earthquake and it faded away. It happened again 2 nights ago and faded away as soon as I moved my head, or as I became more conscious. It was very surreal and I have no idea what it is. I've only just started to get back into Christianity but this didn't feel like anything the holy spirit would do as it freaked me out. I still don't know if this was alien/spiritual or just my body acting up in that particular moment.

I've had plenty of strange experiences...

I just want to share one- which was terrifying to me at that time.

I was around 16 years old- one hot summer night I was lying on my bed, about to sleep... I remember I looked at the clock next to my bed- and the lamp on my desk was still ON.
(I wasnt ready to sleep actually, I was just thinking about what I had to do the next day, etc); when apparently I blacked out.

I woke up suddenly (what seems) a couple minutes later and witness the 2 remaining lights of my house going off (the lamp near my bed and the one in the hall) .
So I thought: -"this is a power cut".

When I incorporate on the bed to get of my bedroom and bring a candle- I see standing at the door (inside my room)a creature- something like a dwarf with a black suit. It was horrible... short stature and big green eyes- and like glowing scary face. (no, NOT an alien).

And it was approaching me with this very evil smile and slow pace.
I was terrified!- as I saw it coming nearer I looked to the door to calculate a big jump to escape... but saw that the teddy bear hanging on my door was moving it's eyes to one side and the other- "what the heck?"
So my panic started to increase.
(The creature was having delight contemplating my fear and the smile on it's face was huge. I'll never forget that face).

I look up to the window to discover there were all kinds of strange symbols on the walls- I couldnt see them clearly because it was dark but there was still light coming through the window- and they were symbols I've never seen (I only recozgnized a triangle and a circle, the others I dont know). They were drawn which something red that looked like blood.
Oh god--Who made those symbols on my walls?- when? - what the hell is happening here ?-

Suddenly... I woke up-
I was sweating with a heart race- "OMG! what horrible nightmare!!!"- was my first thought.

But pretty fast I noticed everything was dark- still. I open and close my eyes- once again. But the room was still dark. How come?- I remember perfectly the lamp was ON before having that nightmare. So I stretched my hand to switch the button- but the lamp didnt respond. I realized the light of the hall was also OFF-

So the powercut had really happened.. :O

When I realized that- I freaked out- got out of bed like crazy and ran to my parents bedroom- on the way I hit my foot with everything on the way- and made plenty of noise waking up whole family.

I was absolutely scared. Because if the power cut was real- the rest must had been real too. I didnt want to mention anything until the morning- I was in panic to talk and explain. So I just waited to see the sunrising to go back to sleep.

After that day, I couldnt sleep in my bedroom for 1 year!. I was absolutely terrified of it happening again.

What was it then?- just a coincidence of me dreaming with a powercut and that horrible creature appearing- and then I woke up and there was actually a blackout?. But no creature or bloody strange symbols.

So yeah, could had been just a dream =)

But I dont belive in conicidences

That's ridiculously scary. o_O

Nothing like that has happened since has it?

I've read about some very frightening experiences and to be honest, I'm a little jealous for living an exceedingly normal life. Though we'll see...

haha! are you referring to my experience?

All my life been attracted to the unknown- and "what lies beneath"- and... I must say I was a reckless teenager.

My best friend and me used to play a lot with the unknown - and that was very silly.

I've grown wiser with the years. Of course.

The universe is energy, we are energy. So one must be careful with the thoughts one is sending out there.

Playing with the unknown always enthralled me. I figure losing one's mind or life in the pursuit of knowledge and experience is a beautiful thing, if it comes to that extreme.

We all die. So why not exploring the boundaries of consciousness and what is perceived as real?

Yes -yes!.

One has to approach everything with respect.
Especially the unknown...It's not a game. Or let's say, it's a "dangerous" one if you dont know what you are doing.

And I guess we were lacking the needed maturity to understand the nature of things.
It was more of a curiosity mixed with fun. Rather than trying to acquire wisdom of the reality and surreal.

It is okay though, one learn from all experiences in the winding path.

Yes we all die- but it's not the end. Just the beggining of a new journey.

Well did the pulling you out of bed keep ceiling from falling on you? was it plaster/ could have injured you? If so, I would say something was protecting you that night! You were lucky! I was lucky, too, one time when I was a teenager, I took a whole bottle of tylenol sleeping pills they had aspirin and sleep medicine in them, I don't think they make them anymore, not ssure. Anyway I was trying to kill myself, but something would not allow that, because I had been asleep many hours and I had a water bed at this time, well something sat on the bed it moved like a water bed would if a cat jumps up on it (or dog) or someone plopped on it, you know a hard jiggle, not like someone just sitting down normally, anyway the movement woke me up, and I was ready to fling a cat across the room, angry that it had awoken me, because now I knew I would throw up the pills cause as soon as I became concious again, I felt the nausea. So anyway there was no cat to throw across the room, so I just kind of got up (my door was closed) So I opened it and ran to the bathroom and threw it all had been hours I should have been unable to even be awoken, but apparently the pills weren't strong enough to keep me sleeping, much less kill me, or maybe they would have if I had been left alone? I am stil pissed at whatever entity thought they would make me live and endure this hell that is my life!

Yes it prevented me being hit, all the plaster fell down and could have seriously injured me, if not could have killed me, i was very lucky.

Unexplained, Blinding Light:

About 17 years ago well after sunset, I was walking up the stairs to go to the second floor of our house. My younger brother was in the kitchen on the other side of the house. Suddenly I was blinded with an extremely bright, white light. All I could see was piercing white light. It last for only a few seconds, so I thought to myself, "Maybe I got light-headed ascending the stairs." But my brother came running upstairs to me and told me while he was in the kitchen he was blinded by the light also.

My first thought was, "Oh my god, we just got abducted by aliens!" I ran to the clock to see if any time had inexplicably passed, but the time was just as it was supposed to be (we just got done watching one of our favorite cartoons, so I knew exactly what time it was).

The stairway was a walled corridor with no windows. The stairway and kitchen are situated in a way that if someone shined a spot light through the kitchen windows you could not see the light from the stairs. And the stairs were lacking any type of lighting because the bulb had blown a few days before but no one wanted to change it.

My brother explained the same exact event that I experienced. It was not like a light being shown in your eyes... It was like.... Open your eyes wide and no matter where you look you only see the light. Me and my brother still talk about this experience from time to time, and we've never figured it out.

Strangest thing I've ever experienced.

The sun eventually rose in the East as normal...and the sunrise in the West slowly dimmed...but you could still see the lines like a cartoonish drawing from a sunrise....for quite awhile until they faded out.

I googled "sunrise in the west" and to islam that means Judgement Day. Lucky for me I'm not islamic.

We still don't know what the heck caused that. It's the only "miracle" I've witnessed...and definitely the strangest.
If there is a God I guess that means the muslims are going to die.

I don't know if the moon follows the path of the sun, but you could have seen a full orange moon setting in the west, which would look kinda cartoonish, as it would be different then the sun. Just thinking of possible ideas.

o_O I just remember another weird thing that happened to me a long time ago. I was rummaging through the refrigerator and my mom was home asleep on the couch late at night. As I started to reach for a soda pop I heard something call out my name in the most creepiest voice. I looked over to where the couch was and beside it kneeling and reaching towards my moms head was this girl who looked like she had been decaying for quite some time. I would go into detail but that might just be against the TOS for how decaptated she was. Lets just say she had body parts that looked like they were hanging on by mere threads of skin. Well.... after I saw her she looked at me and then she vanished for an instant. I woke my mom up, and apparently she was half awake, and I asked her if she heard my name being called. Because I thought I was a crazy person you know X_X She said she had and it sounded like it came from outside. Well I told her no way it could have and then I told her what I saw. I only heard my name called once but my mom claims to have heard my name called multiple times. Then, months/years later I was standing infront of the T.V. watching something on there and this time I felt a presense all around me and it said my name again and it sounded like the exact same creepy voice from before. So yeah.......... that was messed up. That, and it hasn't happened again since so I don't know what it was.

Not to me but my mother and her friend. It was her friend's dad's retirement party from Lancashire constabulary and he was a senior officer so a big do had been planned at the Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Club. We didn't live too far away and the entrance to the club was on a small lane called Lightfoot Green Lane, just a few hundred yards down the road from the school where we all went as younger kids. I was about 13 at the time (26 years ago) and I remember his event very well. My Mum's friend turned up at our house and my Mum, not being much of a drinker, drove and set off with them both in her car. It should take 5 minutes or so to get there from our house and she set off early so they could meet her Mum and Dad and greet their fiends on arrival, help out etc.

Anyway, this was about 8pm. I went to bed at about 9pm and was woken by discussions going on at home and the phone ringing. I tried to go back to sleep and couldn't as the conversation downstairs seemed bizarre. I went down and my Dad asked me to go up to bed but my Mum and her friend, looking really wierd, asked me where the rugby club was. I was a bit taken aback as I knew they'd just been there so I told them that. They said they had but hadn't. They'd tried to get there but couldn't but did. They were in a mess.

I said, "what? What do you mean?" It was summer and a lovely evening. And summer in England, the light is good until around 10:30pm and it wasn't yet dark. I knew it was still early. 10 pm probably.

My Mum said I'd better come and listen to this and what she described next made my mouth dry and me speechless.

They set off from our house and got to the entrance of Lightfoot Green Lane a few minutes later, no traffic problems or anything. They turned into the lane and should've seen the entrance to the club pretty much straight away but it just wasn't there. They drove on a bit thinking they remembered it incorrectly and should've come to a dead end, the start of a service bridge over the M55 that was blocked off. Instead they managed to drive onwards and onwards for a good few minutes and they thought this was strange. They were just about to stop and turn back when they saw a house up ahead.

Now both of them knew, the lane, the club and the dead end and knew that there was no house there at all, the only house being the one attached to the club where the steward resided. They drove onwards and saw a large double wrought iron gate, open wide both sides and very imposing statues situated either side of it, you know the type. As they entered the grounds they saw movement up ahead and people dressed in cocktail dresses and dinner jackets entering the property. The cars were all very slick, Mercedes, Rolls, the odd expensive sorts car but mainly very expensive executive and above level vehicles.

They parked up in my Mum's modest Ford Escort and walked up to the door of the house in order to ask where they'd gone wrong with their directions. Well, the door was already ajar and as soon as they approached the steps of the house they were asked to enter. My Mum said that she tried to explain at this point that she was not a guest but as they were both dressed very well the guy at the door assumed that they were invited and showed them in. They were escorted through into a large hallway were at the end there was another double door. In the hallway alot of the guests were milling about and started to gather near the doubledoor. The doors were opened and at this point my Mum and her friend both said that they knew instantly that something wasn't right and they were in deep doodoo. The doors opened wide and people walked very quickly inside and everybody went left or right, no one went straight ahead. This was because there was a kind of stone table like an altar and on it two (I think) massive candlesticks with really shiny black candles. At this point my Mum decided to speak up and explained that she wasn't a guest and had only come to ask directions.

A very large broad shouldered man in his early fifties who seemed to be the owner of the house went ape and threw them out, was reall really abrupt and physically grabbed them and threw them out I mean. Agitated and worried they quickly got into my Mums car and drove off the way that they came. As soon as the house was out of sight they saw the rugby club so pulled in and went inside. They were so shaken that everybody knew that there was something really wrong and my Mum's friend's Dad told them he expected them nearly 2 hours ago and was really worried about them.

They explained everything and he sent a young officer up the lane in a car to check out the house but he came back and said that there was only a dead end. My Mum and her friend were in such a state and obviously, although both telling the same story, people thought they'd gone mad. They were driven to our house and that's where the story started. Another friend of My Mum's rang our house as my Mum had called her when she got back to tell her about it but she had been out and she left a message with her husband to call her back. She confirmed to my Dad that my Mum knew the way to the club because they'd attended a sumer fete there a few weeks earlier.

The following day my Dad, me and my Mum took a drive to the rugby club, Mum driving and neither of us saying a word about how to get there. She drove directly to the club without any hassle at all and it took less than 5 minutes.

Lightfoot Green Lane is off a main road called Lightfoot Lane and there are no other roads or lanes off of it, within many yards of it or across from it, nothing. There were no houses on Lightfoot Green Lane at that time and I think there's only one there now which is a converted barn that was on a track at that time that on completion of the service bridge of the motorway was joined onto the lane, it wasn't there as a house at the time, just a barn. They could not get this wrong.

strangest thing ive seen was when i was like 6-7 yrs old primary school (australian standards) and my mate told me that if you stayed up til midnight and looked outside there would be all these ghosts hundreds of them with like a syringe gun and if you looked at them they would shoot you.

Anyways I was so scared I didn't sleep for days and on one of those nights I got the courage to look outside to my suprise nothing so at peace I continued looking out the window (around maybe 1:30am) and I noticed something out towards the top left of my window there were 3 ghosts flying through the sky.

They did not look like the average ghosts that you would usually see but it was as if kids had dressed up on halloween with sheets thrown over them, But to this day i reamin adamant that what I saw were ghosts no plane ufo or anything other than that.

Another ocassion was when I had a run in with 2 demons in my bedroom but that is a completely different story
