Apparition of a Suicide VictimDuring the late …

Apparition of a Suicide Victim

During the late 1800s there was a paranormal investigative
society known as the Society for Psychical Research, or SPR. This society investigated
over 700 incidents which they compiled into a study. The following case was one
of their most interesting encounters.

According to the case notes, there was once a girl named
Ellen. Ellen was in love with a disreputable young man whom her family did not
approve of. In order to ensure that she would not marry this man, Ellen was
sent to Brighton, which is on the southern coast of England. One night, Ellens
mother and young brother were sitting outside in their garden. All of a sudden
the brother exclaimed “Look mother there is Ellen!” Sure enough Ellen was seen
dressed in black walking at the edge of the garden. The mother told the brother
to go and see what she was doing there, however due to a sprained foot the
brother was unable to run towards her. Instead they called in the house to have
the youngest sister come out and run to her. They wanted to bring Ellen back
before her father saw her and there was an unpleasant scene. The youngest
sister ran across the lawn yelling Ellens name. Ellen did not respond. She
simply continued walking down the pathway away from the house. When the young
girl finally caught up with her sister she asked where she was going. She went
to grab her sisters arm when her hand passed right through her. She ran back to
her mother and told her what she had seen. The next day the family learnt that
Ellen had thrown herself into the sea and drowned at the exact same hour she had
appeared to them in the garden.

“We used to live in a pretty old house from about the late 1800s or early 1900s. Keep in mind that I don’t typically believe in spirits, but my sister does and claims to be very perceptive and sees them often. 

It started out with just hearing creaks and footsteps, until one night at dinner, my sister’s eyes went completely blank. She started sobbing and talking about how she could “see her” and “she was trying to get in”. This freaked us all out a bit, but my sister is prone to panicking so we figured it might just be that. After this event, she couldn’t remember anything except the feeling of pure terror from that moment. 

A few days later, we heard a series of crashes. My sister keeps all her figurines and trinkets lined up on her windowsill, and something had knocked them all down in a domino-esque fashion while she’d been sleeping. She slept on a cot in my room from then on, with the door closed, but we’d hear banging on the door from the other side often. At one point, we left the door open, and I woke up with something sleeping next to me. I thought it was my dog until I looked up and nothing was there except for a dent on the bed like someone was laying down. I pushed the thing off and the dent went away. 

We had multiple people sleep over and claim that a little girl had gotten in bed with them. Some of them even asked if one of us had slept in their bed. After all this, we decided to research our house, and it turned out that a little girl was brutally killed by a man who used to live in our house in the early 1900s. A few days before we moved out (for unrelated reasons), I went up to my room to get my boxes. I saw a weird shadow and I heard a voice as clear as my own saying ‘it hurts, make them leave, kill them’ and other things like that. I said it was okay and it was over now before running down the stairs. 

Creepy ass Victorian houses. Damn.”

My Dad’s House

“So when I was a little girl, my mom and dad broke up because my dad wanted to be with his now Fiancé, Melanie. So they live in a safe neighborhood in the good part of North Carolina. I’ve always had paranormal experiences as a kid. I was 12 years old and I was with my little sister at the time.

So their house is two levels.The bedrooms and a bathroom were usptairs. So Leah (little sister) and I were in our bedroom with the door wide open around 2am. We were watching PBS kids and we heard footsteps running up and down the stairs. We thought it was nothing.

A hour goes by and I close the door, while Leah is asleep. But all of the sudden the door opens wide and I see this figure walking down the stairs. I couldn’t sleep that night and to this day I still hate going to his house.”

”So I don’t have one set story but I have a bunch of little ones. 

For a little backstory I work in a nursing home in the housekeeping department and I do the laundry, which is in the basement. I go in at 4:30 am. There’s only me at this time until about 7 when the two maintenance workers come in, their office is at the opposite end of where I am. Sometimes a girl comes in at 7 also to work with me, but other than that I’m alone until 7. 

The basement especially is very haunted. A worker even died inside the laundry room where I work (No joke). I’m not trying to sound crazy but I know ghosts and spirits gravitate towards me. I’ve been told I’m very intuitive and have even had dreams that have come true and predicted things. Anyway so here are some things that have happened.

  • One time I was walking down the hallway it was very early, I had gone to the bathroom. I was walking back down the hall and I heard footsteps beside me and felt like someone was right there. I whipped around and no one was there.
  • I was walking out of the laundry room and on one side of the hallway there is clothes for the residents hanging on a rack. There was a few things but not much. I was walking by the wall on the side opposite of the clothes and all the sudden I heard like a metal on mental scratching noise. Like a hanger moving on the metal rack. I turn around and there’s one article of clothing moving like sometime had touched it, just one. Here is a picture of the hallway:
  • We usually keep the door open to the hallway. I usually open it as soon as I get in the laundry room. There’s a table in the middle and you can see the hallway out of the corner of your eye. I’m standing at the table doing my work and I see this white figure walk by the door and I freeze for a second. Then I go out in the hallway and there is no one there, from that point I keep the door closed until 7. If it by chance was somebody you can hear the hallway door close it’s really loud, I heard nothing. 
  • Some other little things are that I’ll be in the back in the dirty linen room sorting the clothes to put in the wash. And there are bins inside the laundry room where you put the clean linen in to fold it. The bins are very noisy and squeak. When I’m in the back room sometimes I hear those bins move and I’ll go to the door and look out and nobody is there. Brooms will fall from places where they are securely set. I see things out of the corner of my eye a lot dashing across the room.
  • Today actually I had just come in and gone upstairs, it was about 4:40am. One of the nurses asked me, ‘did you call here?’ I was confused I said, ‘did I call here? No.’ She asked when exactly I had come in? I said I got there at 4:30. She said at 4 she got a call from the laundry room (the phone tells you what department is calling) and when she picked up it was just a dial tone. A lot doesn’t freak me out but that did. 
  • When I pay stuff like that more attention more stuff happens. I walked passed a room before I went downstairs and heard someone walking I looked in and no one was there, a broom crashed to the floor in the laundry room and I kept seeing things out of the corner of my eye after she told me about the phone thing. I usually brush most of the things off but a few freak me out. 

That’s just some of the things I’ve experienced and I know other people in the building have seen and heard some things too.

Now here are just a few things I’ve personally experienced and my brothers real quick in my house. We all believe my room is haunted. When you go in there you just feel like someone is watching you and it’s this intense feeling. When my brothers were younger they heard a baby crying in the hallway. When I was little my mom would sleep with me sometimes and I had my back turned to her and woke up. It sounded like she was talking in the hall but when I turned over she was sleeping next to me. 

In my bed I have felt like a cat was jumping and walking on my bed and when I looked over my cat was sleeping on the floor. If me and my mom went on vacation my brother would sometimes sleep in my bed with my dog cause that’s where she sleeps. He told me he felt little cat footprints walking all around him but when he looked my cat again was on the floor. He’s seen a dark figure and other things have happened. 

I went into my photos on my iPhone one morning and saw that somehow a weird picture had been taken when I was sleeping. Just the other night I woke up and felt like someone was looking at me and I saw the outline of a women. That’s just some of the things I’ve experienced.”

“Trigger warnings: Death, mention of death

So back in November, our best friend (let’s call her L to make this easier) died in a car crash. It was just sad because she was our best friend and she was only 20. So recently we went to visit L’s family, since we’re still close and it’s a nice feeling to get over the fact that she’s dead. And her mom told us a few interesting things.

A few days before L’s death, she had a dream where her mother was carrying a urn and crying. And her family visiting. Yet she was invisible and no one could hear her. Two days after that dream, she got into that crash. After the funeral and cremation. The mother brought back the urn with L’s ashes and processed to cry and telling all the family visiting to leave. Just like in L’s dream. It wasn’t till a bit later that the mother realized L had dreamed of the aftermath of her death.

A few days after L’s ashes are brought home, a mysterious note showed up on her desk. Mind you, we had been in her room after the funeral. Her desk was messy but there was no paper of any kind on the desk. The note had writing in pencil and blue ink on top of the pencil. And the weird thing is that it was filled with answer to the questions her mom was asking her (mom still talks out loud to L sometimes). The mom was singing amazing grace and long and behold there’s a few lines of amazing grace. The mom had asked what color urn L wanted. Blue or purple. Long and behold, blue ink and random section saying “blue….blue…..blue”. And it’s definitely L’s writing. 6 years of seeing her writing, I know it’s hers. 

L’s mom though she was going crazy cause not just one, but TWO notes appeared. The second one was more incoherent than the first one. Which makes us think it’s an evil spirit taking advantage of L’s mothers sadness.

One more thing. Whenever someone walks into L’s room. Some weird thing will happen. Either her bed will squeak, which only happens if someone sit on it. Or the bird in there will go crazy. Or her closet door will move.
It’s just weird. I don’t know what to think of all of it. But it makes for a good story so long and behold…

TL;DR: Friend dies in car crash. Turns out she saw the aftermath of her death a few days before her death. Two weird notes appear in her room. And weird things happen in her rooms.”
