Drop your paranormal experiences! Cryptids, ghosts, UFOs, aliens, glitches in the matrix, I want to hear them and discuss.
I have many, but I’ll tell the creepiest and longest.
Yeah, it was pretty wild. I can’t sleep in the dark or in silence anymore. I see a lot of shadow people and orbs; I hear singing and talking (many different tones and voices). My friends refuse to do ouija or go to haunted places with me because of the things I see, hear and feel.

i used to see shadow people in my dad's house when i lived there, things moving when i turned on the light (no wind, so it shouldn't be moving), loud crashes from things falling over that shouldn't fall over unless someone were to knock them over.

I used to be really into ghost hunting when I was younger. One night I was in my friend's front yard where he had witnessed paranormal activity before. We had a cassette recorder that we were hoping to record an EVP on. We asked for any spirits to talk to us. after we asked, a deer (that came seemingly from out of nowhere) snorted about 15 feet behind us and scared the crap out of us. We were outside and not being quiet, so it was very unusual that a deer would be that close to us. When we listened back to the tape we heard an EVP just before the deer appeared that sounded like it said "kill"
I know there is not really much substantial evidence here, but it is my most memorable experience from my ghost hunting days in my late teens and at the time it was such an eerie experience.

I once woke up in the middle of the night and heard strange voices coming from downstairs. I didn't know what they said because they spoke a weird mix of English and some other language I've never heard of. Then they began playing music that sounded like a marching band and ascended up the stairs. I was little at the time and my room was right next to the staircase, so i was too scared to go wakeup my parents

Before moving here about two years ago, my boyfriend's mother suggested that we spend the night at the Hawthorne Hotel for mother's day; followed by a leisurely trip to the museum the next day. I was all in, as I had never stayed at the Hawthorne before and I loved Salem for all of the reasons mentioned.
When we arrived at the hotel I noticed right away that it had a very authentic feel, as though the building belonged chiefly to the past. The original elevator was still working and intact from the hotel's construction in the 1920s. As we ascended to our room on the third floor, a couple who were in it with us mentioned to each other that the third floor was said to be haunted. I didn't think anything of it. Of course, it's haunted I thought...all of Salem is supposedly haunted. That's the whole shtick. I figured it was just a tourist's fantasy and brushed it right off.
That night Nikki and I went out and had a nice dinner at which I drank no more than two glasses of wine. Then we strolled back to the hotel and got to bed by 11 p.m. Nikki is a morning person so I was hoping to get right to sleep since I knew she would be waking me up at some ungodly hour. I settled in and shut the lights.
At around 1 a.m I was just falling asleep when I heard some strange sounds coming from Nikki's direction. I realized suddenly that she was talking in her sleep. As strange as that was- I thought, "ok, that's o.k, people do that. It's normal". Then the talking got spooky as she started to sound distressed like she was having a nightmare, so I woke her up. She looked at me and said "oh, Kate, were you just lying down here in the bed next to me? I said, "no, I have been here in my bed all night, you were talking in your sleep." Nikki said that she felt like someone was with her on the bed and she was trying to wake herself up. I thought then that it was just a classic case of sleep paralysis. She said that she felt like someone was touching her with their hands on her arm. I did not touch her to wake her, I spoke loudly to her saying her name until she woke up, so at no point did I put my hands on her.
Nikki quickly fell back asleep, but I was still a little weirded out and turned the light off but then turned the t.v. on to help me relax. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was on, and I was comforted by the very not spooky Will Smith and his fluorescent colored wardrobe. I finally started to doze off at about 3am. Just as I was in between the state of waking and sleeping I heard the loudest banging sound, just above my head over the bed. It was so loud that I shot straight up in the bed! I looked around, feeling confused, and then said out loud to myself "no way!". I got up and went to the door. I opened it to see if anyone was in the hallways. No one was there. I tried to replicate the noise with objects in the room, but there was nothing that could have made that noise. I sat up wide awake the rest of the night, annoyed...by the first haunting experience I'd ever had.
Normally I would have loved this kind of thing and been oh so interested in what was happening. This particular occasion however was not prime ghost hunting time. I was just supposed to be having a quiet evening with Nikki spending quality girl time; shopping and seeing art. I wanted to sleep and be a person for her the next day, but I stayed wide, wide awake.
When the sun FINALLY came up, and Nikki got up all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, we got ready for the day and then headed downstairs for breakfast in the beautiful dining room at the Hawthorne. I sat across from Nikki, looking disheveled and she asked me how I slept. I said I hadn't and then started asking her more about the sleep talking incident. She said that she doesn't normally talk in her sleep but had the strangest dream and felt like someone was touching her. I told her what happened to me with the banging noise and she and I kind of laughed about our little haunting.
I was not done sleuthing the situation however so I scrolled through some of the reviews of the Hawthorne online. Multiple accounts from the customers described hauntings on the third floor, and in the elevator. Most of these accounts involved two things. The first was "phantom hands" the feeling of someone touching you when no one is there. The second was loud knocking or banging sounds late in the night. The hotel responds to all of these posts very professionally trying to debunk the claims, saying that it is a very old hotel so noises, of course, happen, etc., etc.
We experienced two of the most common haunting scenarios that night.
It would have been less convincing to me that we had indeed had been haunted if I did not see that these two things were so common. After all, in between waking and sleeping, both of us could have been simply dreaming. I know that we were not though. I know it from both the experience and my intuition that this was what it was.
The Hawthorne Hotel...is haunted!

When I was on a trip to New Orleans we decided to go on a paranormal investigation tour in an Orphan Asylum. At first, nothing really happened we had some random words come through the voice box but as we moved to the mother's room we started getting words like "who are you" and "young girl" we thought maybe the spirit was talking about me because I was 13 at the time. It only got spookier as the night went on because as my mother was using the spirit rods to communicate with what we believe to be the ghost of a young boy named ben I was poked hard in the shoulder but it felt like when you get static electricity. My mother asked if ben (the spirit) had touched me and it replied with a pretty clear yes. Then, when we went upstairs I honestly felt like I was going to puke because of how heavy the air was up there. And I don't think it was the Heat. It just felt off the entire time we were there and the emf reader we were given kept going off and the voice box said a bunch of nonsense that I can't quite remember. But altogether it was a very interesting experience.

when i was in sixth grade, the month after starting at a new school, i had laid down to go to bed sometime at around 2-3am after a restless few nights. when i laid down, i felt an intense wave of fear wash over me and my entire body went cold. i tried to move my limbs and i could! i knew i was awake, and as someone who has had sleep problems their whole life, i know the difference between this situation and sleep paralysis. i knew i had the ability to open my eyes but i was so afraid to open my eyes that i refused to do so, so i just laid there. only a few seconds later, i feel the easing pressure on the other side of my mattress, i felt the mattress sink in like someone sat on it. mind you, my door was close, and no one in my family was awake at the time, so no one else could have possibly been in my room. the creepiest part was feeling the weight shift closer to me, the figure elongated itself and wrapped around me, i was covered in a cold film of sweat as the figure basically spooned me. i felt the semblance of a hand on my head and heard so quietly faint whispers towards me, and once i had gotten enough courage, i snapped my eyes open and flailed my entire body about so i could shake the entity away. i quickly learned how to cleanse a space (i was a baby witch at the time) and i was never bothered again, but still, one of the most emotionally disturbing things i've had to deal with!

I had a legitimate out of body experience that caused me to undergo an irreversible paradigm shift about 10 years ago.
This was when I was in college, and was into quite a bit of hallucinogens at the time. I managed to become friends with a Native American guy who got ahold of some peyote. We took a lot, like too much. It was completely mind fracturing. I don’t remember going to sleep, at least I’m not sure when the hallucinations ended and my dreaming began, but I luckily woke up the next day. I felt so discombobulated when I awoke I didn’t really know what to do besides drink water and rest.
I had to go to a private drum instruction that day about 2 hours before the moment that it happened. I decided to try and take a nap but I remember not falling asleep. I distinctly remember being conscious of my body and the room around me. I could hear my roommate clacking away on his keyboard and watching the news. The lights were on, and our bathroom door was open, so plenty of light in the room.
While I was laying there on my back, I had my hands to my side. I remember having my eyes closed, but suddenly I could see the room. Everything had a bluish-purple look to it. Like everything looked normal in terms of form and function, but not. And I remember trying to move my arms, and feeling the sensation of moving, but being surprised to notice that my physical arms didn’t appear to move when my brain was trying to issue commands. Nor did the rest of my body, but I somehow moved out of my body and to the ceiling and was suddenly watching myself laying on the bed.
The feeling is indescribable. It’s like you no longer feel your skin and bones on top of you, and the feeling of being present is all that was left. It was like inhabiting the air. When I moved I didn’t experience motion, I just ended up where I thought I should go.
Unfortunately this lasted for probably 2 minutes before I felt a tugging at my chest, and then I was suddenly breathing and sitting up again in my body. I felt like I had been born again. All of my senses were hyper aware. I’ve never been the same since.

When I was 18, my childhood cat was struggling with cancer. Around my cats last month or so a blue spirit showed up. I first saw it outside my window (second floor, no latter or anything) as a hand against the window. Ever since then it just hung around till my cat finally breathed his last. It was mostly just an orb (a very bright large one) but it would often form a hand, usually pointing in the direction of my cat, but was never in the same room as my cat. My other critters didn't seem to care about this spirits prsence, but I was terrified. Hardly anyone believed me, I didn't know what it was or how to handle it. Only two other people saw it and they didn't know what to do either. Anytime I was near it was cold, the hairs on my arms and head stood up. Sometimes lights flickered. Usually blue, but sometimes had swirls of white in the orb. It was harmless though. It came to me in my dreams too as a blue spider. In my dreams I wasn't scared a all actually, only when I was awake. In my dreams it told me that one day my first guinea pig and this cat was going to come back to me one day. It also showed me images of a plastic house, a plastic car, and plastic keys and told me none of these things matter, as it built a web. And I kid you not, when it departed a dime dinged in the air, I still have it.

So in the beginning of 2021 I told myself I would work on strengthening my spirituality and start praying to my ancestors for clairaudience (the ability to hear them). So one night a few months into the year I’m just waking up from falling asleep it’s like midnight. I roll up a lil blunt and smoke it outside then I go back to the bed to go back to sleep. I was in that state where you’re trying to get back to bed so you close your eyes, but I knew I was awake. So I hear this ringing in my ear all of a sudden. Then, at the end of the ring someone started to speak to me in my head. My eyes were still closed atp. I’m literally communicating to someone in my head. I forgot the conversation but I know I was thinking about something and he replied, in my fucking head. Like I knew it wasn’t coming from me because I was thinking about how crazy the situation was whilst communicating. I remember saying in my head “yoo, you can hear me?!” And the make voice very clearly said “yeah I can hear you, can’t you hear me?” My heart started beating soooo fast I was like “how is this possible!?” And the voice was like “don’t you know all that we can do?” And idk why but I got kinda spooked at the “we” because Idk if they meant we as in people or we as in like this was a demonic spirit or sun (it didn’t feel negative I was just spooked out). But that was it I ended the transmission when I opened my eyes I was like nooooopeeeee gotta put the lights on. Couldn’t go back to sleep after that, hasn’t happened since though. If it does I hope I’ll be more prepare and less afraid

Mainly my experiences deal with shadow beings. My sister and I saw them regularly growing up. They always hid in the closets but you could only see them in the dark. They were very visibly dark masses that were darker than our houses darkness. As I grew up the experiences slowly faded but I also was going thru alot and moving when I graduated.

I experience seeing and hearing ghosts, also touched by one, sometimes. I say sometimes because I feel like they only appear, say something or touch when they want to. I never hear AND see them, it always one or the other. I've seen mostly than heard or been touched.
The house that was built in the 50's/60's was really haunted. The front door would slam open on it's own and then slam shut again on it's own. Picture frames would fall off the wall and smash the glass every time. I heard footsteps walking up the hallway often, but the one experience from that house that I remember so clearly to this day still is the full body apparition. They were just there, standing in the bathroom, then they walked straight towards me and disappeared inches from my face. I didn't experience that ghost or anything like that again. My Mum was the one that got bothered most by the ghost(s) in that house.
The house we lived in after the 50's/60's house was haunted I think, or maybe even the house next door. This house was built in the 90's. We'd have apparitions pass through, usually always the same one. There was also a ghost that would be out by the footpath. You could hear their footsteps walk up behind you, I would also see them out of the corner of my eye sometimes, but they would never be inside the house or come inside the house, they only stayed outside. I also experienced being touched in the house, but it was a gentle, reassuring touch but cold. That's what makes me believe that one is a relative of mine and possibly not even connected to that house, but I'm still mentioning it because it's fascinating. Then there was a ghost that would go up and down the stairs whenever they felt like doing so. I'd even hear them when I couldn't see them. I'd see a ghost of a young child every now and then too, maybe that's the ghost that would go up and down the stairs. Then there was hearing a ghost(s) for the first time. I would hear a feminine voice. The feminine voice would go "Sh!" to me or call or say my name, I thought I even heard her humming one day.
I recently moved again and this house maybe possibly haunted too but not as much as previous ones. One could also be linked to the house on the right or the church on the left of the this house. Since moving in, I've only seen two full body apparitions and both were two different ghosts. The first one was in the driveway standing by the front of our car that was under the carport, I then smelt cigarette smoke. It was heavy and burnt my eyes and lungs. Nobody in my house smokes. The second ghost stands under a massive tree that's close to the road, I've seen them standing close to the fence line while I've been in the backyard and I've also seen them standing outside the church window, like they were looking inside, when I've walked past the church. I see them more near this tree than any of the other two places. I've seen a small, white dog too. They are always in the woodshed or in the backyard.
I've also thought I've seen my great grandmother at my grandparents house on a few occasions. She passed around Good Friday and that's when I thought I'd seen her.

Cuenta como paranormal, no lo sé.
Nadie cree nunca lo que me ha pasado, hasta se han reído.
En el 2018 llegué del trabajo a la 1 de la mañana, no podía dormir así que me quedé toda la noche en redes sociales, casi a las 6 de la mañana conecté mi celular porque se iba a apagar, apagué la ventana y mire una luz intermitente y solo al verla como despegaba hacia arriba y desaparecía, me fui a dormir y me desperté, me dijeron que había muerto un familiar!
¿Crees que es una coincidencia?
No sé, me ha hecho pensar mucho desde entonces, y todavía no puedo encontrar una respuesta.

Okay so I had a friend who opened their third eye like ligit and I didn’t belive in the third eye think for a while but my friend started to discuss a lot about the afterlife and consciences that could come of certain things and she would say things not a lot of people could just come up with from the top of their heads. I was still skeptical but one night I was staying over and my friend was having a panic attack and freaking out hitting herself the whole deal I did my best to comfort her but I had to have her boyfriend come and help. Once he arrived I asked my friend if she wanted some water and she agreed. I went upsetairs to her kitchen and got some water but as I was filling up a cup of water the cabinet door behind me started opening and closing (no air drafts were present everything was locked up tightly) it scared the hell out of me and I ran downstairs. My friend told me it was one of her guardian angels and they were just freaking out. i was still shaken after that.

- I wanna say I was in my late pre-teens to early teens when this happened, since I don't remember the timing very well. My oldest nephew and I are close in age, him being slightly older. We went through a phase where we were extremely interested in the paranormal and wanted to be ghost hunters. We'd often what shows of people visiting haunted locations to gather evidence that spirits were real. One time we were watching Ghost Adventures in my parents living room. It was nighttime, we had all the lights off, and we were sitting on the coffee table. I noticed a light flesh color blur in the corner in my vision and turned to look at it. It was hard to make out, but it was tall and humanoid looking. I though maybe I had just been staring at the screen for too long and the images on screen had burned into my eyeballs, but then my nephew nudged me and pointed at it asking if I saw it too. We sat there speechless, staring at it as it held it's form for about three minutes, then disappeared.
- Now this next one I've heard is a pretty common sighting. The top hat man. He's usually described as a shadow with a top hat on, as the name implies. But when I saw him he was small, a little less than the height of a Barbie doll and it was while I was cleaning my room. He darted out from behind my desk and then disappeared behind something else. I never saw him again and only learned of the top hat man several years later into my adult life.
- Some may dismiss this as simple night terrors and sleep paralysis, or even psychosis, but it was much more terrifying and complex than that. When I was in my mid to late teens I was going through an extremely difficult time with my mental health. I had been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, C-PTSD, ADHD, severe depression, and a couple therapists insisted I have BPD, but it was later discovered as an adult that I'm actually autistic. I started having those nightmares you can never wake up from, where each time you woke up you were still dreaming. It would happen several times before I actually woke up. I couldn't trust myself whether to believe if I was ever really awake or not and began to lose my mind. None of these dreams were ever good, they were all nightmares. Usually of being attacked, constantly trying to escape something. Just really horrible shit. What was even worse was at times I'd have sleep paralysis and shadow figures would attack me. It went away eventually.
- At my current residence, I woke up in the middle of the night and my bedroom door was open. I saw a white figure standing in the hallway. We just stared at each other for a little while and it disappeared.
- Also where I currently live. My friends and I were hanging out in the living room when we watched our laundry detergent fly from one end of the room to the other.
- I had a cat that passed away March of last year. Sometimes I feel something climb in bed with my fiance and I at night and I believe it's him.

i wasn't too much of a ghost believer before 13. but my dad is a part of a indie filming crew and he was bored of quarantine so he wanted to do a live show online. They though it would be a great idea to make the theme paranormal because there was a paranormal expert that's going viral on our national TV.

Ever since i was a kid creepy things would happen anywhere we moved. So i just got used to being around supernatural stuff. But in middle school i was going through a lot with bullying and stuff that i would be mentally exhausted. One day i got home and everyone else was at my aunt's house, so i decided to cook some noodles and start my hw, when all of the sudden i hear my little sister's voice call me out. I was confused but maybe they left her home cause she was sleeping, so i go to her room and nothing. That's when i was like "oh the ghosts, oh well". I resume on doing my things and my family gets home 30 minutes later. But my mom had to go back for some stuff and everyone wanted go so i signed myself too. I walk into my room to get my shoes and i see a silhouette of someone hanged like if they had commited suicide. I was soooo creeped out and i just got my shoes and ran out. The silhouette looked like a female and i was just trynna figure out everything, something in me made me feel weird when i saw it. Creepy thing is the next day my mom had a meeting with my counselors and bullies which made them seperate me classes and get them suspended and never saw the silhouette. Sometimes i think that maybe that was me and it was like a sign that if no action happened then that would've been my body hanging.

my first and only real paranormal experience was when last year. i had just gotten home and i let my dog out of his crate at about 1 pm. me and him are both sitting on the couch relaxing and he starts barking, and i mean absolutely loosing it about something. granted, my dog is the type to let us know if something or someone is outside by barking so it wasn’t too odd yet. he gets down and goes to the door leading to my garage and barks some more. i thought to myself at first, ‘maybe my mom is home’ because typically she gets home about that time, and comes through that door. but i didn’t hear the garage door raise so i was skeptical. i get up and see that not only is my mom not home, but the garage is completely shut with nothing in it. i told my dog that nothing was there and to chill out but he wouldn’t. that was a bit odd for him so i thought maybe there might be something in there. so, i put him on his leach and let him go into the garage. this is the eerie part,, because while he was in the garage, he was following something with his head up looking at it. like he wasn’t sniffing the ground or anything like that but genuinely was following something. i couldn’t see anything in the garage he could have followed but yet he still persisted. i eventually made him come back inside and raised the garage (out of worry/confusion)

I’ll tell you 2 stories, 1. I don’t remember this myself but my family tells me this all the time, when I was 7 or so my family lived in a huge barn (it has been made into a house there were no animals there anymore) and it was big and old which meant it was sort of haunted, because of that I had an imaginary friend : her name was Sophie! It’s sounds sort of normal but what makes it spiritual is when we would play tag down the hall, you would her my footsteps.. AND HERS !!!
