Have you ever had a paranormal experience? The following experiences were shared by users on Reddit and Quora. Though they’re creepy all throughout, sometimes the really shocking part of the story is at the very end.
1. Laughing … ‘Things’
In early 2007, I was in a traveling singing group. … We were invited to stay the evening at the house of a previous member named Drew. …
At 2:48am (I’ll never forget the clock, since it was the only thing I could focus on) I woke up very suddenly. I was immediately frozen in bed, my heart was racing, my throat went tight and I couldn’t swallow. It was primal fear at its best.
I couldn’t roll over to check, but I swear, even now, that something was standing over me. Everything in my instinct told me not to turn around. It felt like my life depended on me staying right where I was. During this time of intense fear, I kept seeing images in my mind, flashes of gore and plain-out horrible things.
I could hear a laughing in my ears, but not the voice of just one person laughing. It sounded like I was in a room with thousands of …things …laughing. I remember for the first time having suicide cross my mind during this overwhelming, fear-driven time.
I should note that I am not, and have never been, suicidal.
When “the feeling” went away, the last thing I remember hearing in my mind was, “Not this one.” I looked at the clock again and only nine minutes had passed. Longest … nine minutes of my life.
A few hours later when I got up, I decided I was going to get … out of there as quickly as I possibly could. I skipped a shower and breakfast and sat in the van waiting for the rest of my team.
As I was waiting, Drew’s brother came out and spoke with me. He said one sentence: “I’m sorry I couldn’t help you this morning.” As he said it, he had tears in his eyes. He honestly looked like he was going to be sick to me. The look of hopelessness in his eyes still haunts me.
Two weeks later, we got word that Drew’s brother killed himself just before 3 a.m.
… Part of me wonders if I would have just tried talking to his brother, maybe things would be different.
I’ve never spoke about this to anyone but my husband. It brings back a chill to my spine … and a sense of guilt. I don’t know what to make of it or what … really happened in that house. Part of me never wants to know.
2. Lights Out
Growing up, I used to spend the night at a house that was (in my opinion) haunted. My friend lived there with her family, and they all thought nothing of the sinks turning themselves on and off at night, sporadically. … Other haunted [happenings] … in this house:
The TV turned itself on sometimes, and changed channels by itself. One time we laid in the bed upstairs, talking, and the TV turned on and started slowly flipping through different channels of static.
My friend’s bedroom was the bonus room, so she had the door to the attic in her ceiling. If we stayed up talking too late, we would hear warped wood start creaking back and forth across the door. SO scary, when you’re all of 14 years old.
Worst thing: This was the thing that made me officially stop going over to her house. One time the whole family packed up and went … shopping. … The mom locked up the house as usual, we shopped for 30 minutes tops, and came home. When her mom went inside, she tried flipping on the lights. Didn’t work. She said, “I wonder if the power’s out?” and tried other lamps. Nothing.
After a swift check of the house, it was discovered that all the light bulbs in the house had been moved to the four corners of the living room. I don’t know why, but I remember crying when we discovered them. For some reason it was deeply scary for me.
