Scary Paranormal Experiences

Updated on July 25, 2014

Face To Face With The Paranormal

After so many years from my last paranormal experience, I can still remember the details of the experiences and I have to be honest, it still frightens me. When I was younger I had unique paranormal experiences that, up until this day I still can't explain them. I can hear voices, laughter, footsteps and even music where there shouldn't be. Moving objects and furniture, real scary!. Playing with the Ouija Board did not necessarily helped the situation. I have lived in haunted houses and I have experienced really weird and scary stuff.

Here I will tell you my personal stories and experiences with the paranormal and please feel free to add your stories. I'm always interested in what others think about this subject.

Paranormal Experienced: It All Started With the Ouija Board - Paranormal Experience With The Ouija Board

I remember like it was yesterday, I was 12 years old and I just told my father that I wanted a Ouija Board for Christmas. I know, I was way too young to be playing, or should I be saying, channeling with the Ouija Board. Back then, we all thought that this board was just like any another family board game, a game much like the magic ball, you know, just for entertainment. If any member of my family knew the repercussions that would bring because of playing with the Ouija Board, I think they would have never bought the board in the first place. This was just another game on my Christmas wish list, never took it seriously.

Like I said, I was 12, very young and ignorant to the dangers of playing the Ouija Board. And without knowing how to play it or how to protect myself before and after every section, I was really playing with fire and open a door that I'm not sure I closed yet.

I remember playing this board almost everyday, without any evidence of something out of the ordinary. I pretended that I was talking to someone, but of course, I knew it was just make believe, I never thought of it as something serious. I played the Ouija Board couple of months later and then I put it away for good.

It wasn't until I got to high school, that I played the Ouija Board once again, and this time, it was the last time I ever did!

It was Halloween night 1993, my friend and I were at her house for a girls night get together. We were talking about playing the Ouija Board and I told her that the Ouija Board was very lame. I told her, not to bother with it! But she wanted to play and ask me to join her. BAD CHOICE!

After maybe 20 minutes into the séance, my friend started to feel weird, her hand was shaking. All of the sudden she started screaming and panicking. Looking at me with panic eyes, she said that she could see a figure forming around me.

At this exact moment the four candles we had in the room around the table, went off. All of them at the same time. There was no drafts, because we made sure everything was closed and the candles were brand new. That was enough! I was so scared, it literally send me home running. I couldn't sleep that night and many nights after that. But the scary part is that whatever she saw forming around me that night, must have followed me because my life was not the same after that night, neither was my childhood home.

A Really Scary Day

My Real Experience With The Paranormal

After several months and all that scary stuff behind us, me and my friend started experimenting with the Tarot Cards. It was my high school years so I guess I was a little rebel and I was very much interested in the occult and paranormal.

One day my friend told me to keep the tarot cards for awhile until I could learn how to read them and interpret them. I remember having the cards always in my room for a long period of time.

One day after school, I got home, like always and went straight to my room, locked the door behind me and I started listening to music and talk over the phone with a friend ( I was 17 years old ). After talking with my friend for more than an hour, I heard banging on my door. First, I ignore it thinking it was my brother or sister. But then, the knocks got a little harder and stronger, like someone was trying to break the door down.

I told my friend to hold on, it was just my sister, I said! YEAH RIGHT...

After I opened the door I found no one there. I was so angry at who ever it was because they kept banging and I couldn't talk with my friend over the phone.

Finally, my friend suggested to leave the door open and see if they come back to bother. That's exactly what I did. I left the bedroom door open waiting for my brother or sister to come by and start bothering me. But no one came. I thought that opening the door was such a great idea! NOT!

Five minutes passed when all of the sudden I hear my mother's car pulling up into the garage. I was puzzled, where was she? and better yet, was she alone?... My sister and my brother were with my mother the whole time at the mall which could only meant that I was alone at the house the whole time.

The first thing that came out of my mouth was, "Mom, call the police" I really thought someone was inside the house. It had to be, I mean, someone was banging on my door, many times, and my friend heard everything over the phone. She heard the bangs, that was not me imagining things. I knew something was wrong. We looked everywhere around the house, and of course, no one was there. I know for sure that it was a ghost or a spirit or something. All I know is that it did happen and it scared me to death.

The next day, I gave back the Tarot Cards to my friend. I don't know if the Tarot Cards had anything to do with it, but I was too afraid to even think about the possibilities. My house was never the same, the feeling was dark and not good!

Too Scared To Sleep In My Room

Scared Of The Dark!

Yes! I was really scared to sleep in my room. I would hear voices, laughter, I felt a presence in the room and it didn't feel good at all. My sister and brother refused to sleep in my room and many of my friends told me that they felt very weird while sleeping over at my house. I knew something was going on, something that I sure did not wanted.

Over the corner of my eye I could see a black figure leaning on the back of the bedroom door. I remember falling asleep with the lights on and the covers pulled over my head.

In that house I could hear voices calling me when no one was there, I've been touch by unseen hands and I have felt the bed mattress pressing down like when someone is sitting on it. TERRIFYING!

One year after my parents sold the house to one of their good friends from church, they received a very disturbing phone call. It was the new owners of the house, they were just wondering if we knew something about the house and if something had happened there. My mother, not believing that it was haunted, told them that nothing was wrong with the house. The new owners told my parents that there was something evil in the house and that more than 3 priests have been to the property to bless it and still their daughter couldn't sleep in her room. When my mother asked her which room the girl was sleeping, the lady answer: " the room on the left" (my old room)!!

We haven't heard from them again... we wonder if they ever got rid of the evil from that house?!

Some People Are More Sensitive Than Others

I believe that after my involvement with the occult and using the Ouija Board without any knowledge, had made me to a certain point, sensitive to my environment and it's easier for me to see or hear things now. I can sense when someone is coming, sometimes I know what they are feeling. It's like I can feel their emotions, their energy.

When I walk into a room I could feel the energy around the room; you can say I'm more aware now.

This is why I have a very strong inclination towards the paranormal, because I've had experience it personally and I believe that there is much more than what we can see, hear and feel with our human senses.

After I moved out of my childhood home, I lived in two different places that I knew for sure that were haunted. Both of the locations were in Massachusetts. The feeling I got from both places was very spooky and creepy. I remember that I didn't like to be left alone in the house at anytime. I could hear voices, footsteps, laughter, the smell of candle burning and even witnessed my recliner moved by it self.

Have you ever had an encounter with the paranormal?

I'm no expert on the paranormal, but I do know what I see, what I hear and feel. I'm a scientist, so I always look for the logical explanation for everything, and I can say with confidence that there is more to our world than what we think it is. Open your eyes, and you will see too!

I'll love to hear from you... - Drop me a line!

      Wow, this was some lens. I love reading paranormal romance, but I would rather it stay inside the book than come anywhere near me. Unless, of course, it is a handsome vampire with a good heart or does he even have a heart? Blessings.

      It's sad you had some terrifying paranormal experiences in past, do you still feel those energy now a days? Are those energy following you still? I never had like this before, but had little fear that will see something unedifying stuff, when i was working in night shift.

      God bless your life. Take care!

      I absolutely believe in this stuff. I don't think it's necessarily SCARY, though. I've had experiences with being touched, heard noises, had stuff move, etc. I just chalk it up to someone who doesn't have a body any more just sayin' hello. I DO understand that scary stuff happens, though. Great lens!

      Very cool lens. I am a believer. I think that everything and everyone in this world is connected and some can sense the energy of others better. Living or dead we are as one.

      I think if you and I were to sit down and talk it would be like talking into a mirror. I knew you were a sensitive. If you ever get the chance or the courage, I would love to hear more about the figure in the doorway. You can send me an email. Nice Lens!
