WHEN TOYS SNEAK UP ON YOU

This is another true ghost story. It happened in the house we are living in now. I wrote this piece last year, and will give a short update at the end.

This happened a few months ago, right here in my living room. I was sitting here at my computer desk. When I turned around to get up, my grandson’s small, metal car had appeared in the floor, right behind me.

Now, my grandson and his family had been here visiting, four months earlier…they live in another state. He had brought lots of toys to play with while he was here, including small cars. I’m sure one probably got left behind, when they left to go home. However, in the four months since then, I know I’d moved the furniture around, and swept the floor, etc. and had not seen one at all.

So, the fact that this little toy car suddenly appeared, was very strange. The cats, as usual, were in the back bedroom, sleeping like they always do. I know they had not dragged the car out. I did not hear any noise of a metal car rolling across the hardwood floor toward me. So, why did it choose to show itself to me now, and where had it been hiding?

I got a weird feeling about it, so did not go pick it up right away, waiting to see if it would move again…but, it didn’t. I left it there all the rest of the day, right in the middle of the floor. The cats did come out of the bedroom, later on.When they saw the toy car, they were very suspisious of it. They acted scared to go near it, and walked wide around to avoid it. That is not normal behavior for them. Usually, anything that looks like a toy, they will bat it around the house, then chase after it. Not this time.

At the end of the day, I did pick it up. I put it on the shelf by my desk. I see it every day, and it sees me. I keep waiting for it to make another sneaky move, but so far it hasn’t.

UPDATE:  My grandson and his family came to visit again this summer, and I gave the toy car back to him. I told my daughter all of what had happened with it, and she suggested that maybe it had just been a signal, that my grandson was just saying hi from his house to mine. I like to believe that’s all it was.

Have you every had toys that did things on their own? I’ve heard of some that use batteries, and they will come on at odd times. Do you think toys can be possessed? I’ve heard stories of this happening, too. Anyway, I look at toys differently, now. You never know when one will sneak up on you!

~ Hope you’re enjoying my true ghost stories. There will be more…much more!

I wish I’d have taken a picture of the car, but either I didn’t even think of it, or my camera wasn’t working at the time. Maybe it just didn’t want it’s picture taken? I’ve had things like that happen before, too, with batteries draining, or photos I take just not showing up.

Haunted Coffee Table – Another Story of My Grandma’s Haunted House

This is one more story I have about my Grandma’s Haunted House. I wrote this one on July 28, 2014.

FLYING OBJECTS…IDENTIFIED

 

Have you ever seen a normal household object in your house fly through the air on it’s own? I have on many occasions. As long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to the paranormal realm. I know there are many unexplainable occurances in the world, and I really believe they are from another dimension, or a parallel universe, from outer space, or even a ghost.

With this post, I’ll begin relating some of my most memorable experiences with the supernatural.

~

Flying objects have been pretty consistant in my experience. First at my grandma’s house, then in my own homes.  My grandmother was the 13th child in her family. When I was growing up, she lived around the corner from us – the adddress was 1313 xyz Street. Her house was haunted. I don’t know if all the 13 numbers had anything to do with it, but it did make it more interesting.

On many occasions, when I was at her house, just sitting there in the living room, things would fly off the coffee table for no reason we could see. Things like a candy dish, a magazine, or an ashtray would slide, jump, or fly off it. We did not make this happen. We didn’t know when it would happen, it just did. It got pretty commonplace to see this happening off and on through the years.

I know there were unseen entities in that house. We could feel their presence, and see what they did. I never actually saw an apparition, but did see things move about, and hear strange noises there. Later on, my grandma moved into another house, taking some of her furniture with her. That coffee table was one of the pieces she kept. I think something was attached to it and came along to the new place, because the occurances of flying objects continued there, also.

My aunt still has that coffee table in her house, now. I took a picture of it recently, but didn’t see anything strange about it. I know it has secrets, though. It is off to the left, in front of the dustcloth covered couch. She’s never said if anything weird happens with it now.

In future posts, I will tell of more flying objects I’ve seen … at my own house! I will, also tell more true stories of my encounters with the paranormal.

Have you had any weird experiences like this? What are your thoughts on the unexplained? I’d love to hear your stories!

The coffee table is in front of the sheet covered couch in this photo. It is dark brown, with slats, and it is fairly long. You can click the photo to enlarge.

My Grandma’s Spooky Garage

My Grandma’s Spooky Garage

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

After I posted my flashback post yesterday, about my My Grandma’s Haunted House, there was some interest in hearing more.

This then is a true story I posted on August 11, 2014, about my Grandma’s Spooky Garage.

Most of these happened when I was a kid, and I’d be over there at her house.

***

SPOOKY GARAGE

Have you ever felt like an unseen presence was watching you? You get that creepy feeling, maybe your hair stands up on the back of your neck, or you get hyper sensitive of any stealthy noises? Your ears want to hear something, anything, but you don’t…you just feel an overwhelming need to leave where you are. You are being watched. You don’t know who it is…or what it is, but you can sense they are there.

I have had this feeling lots of times. The most frequent was at my Grandma’s house…the one from my previous story. I could feel someone or something watching me in that back bedroom, which was scary, but the strongest feeling of this was in the garage. It was an old wooden and stucco outbuilding, right by the house. It was big enough for one car, and some items hanging on the walls on either side. The floor was just dirt, and there were two doors you’d have to open to get the car inside or out…no automatic garage door on this old place. The whole structure seemed kind of rickety, and there was always a musty smell, of old dirt and car parts. Nothing sinister, just the usual homeowner’s garage filled with tools, and other items.

However, if you went further into the garage, there was another door. Back behind where the car was parked, was a flimsy door. When in that little back room you could feel the weirdness. It didn’t look very strange, just a bunch of canning jars, and miscellaneous stored items, some junk from the house being stored. My cousin and I would always beg to go prowl around in there, though, mainly because it was spooky, and we liked to look at all the stuff.

The very best part, we thought, was an antique trunk. It must have belonged to some long lost relative, I don’t know, but it had all kinds of interesting things in there to look at. There were clothes from a bygone era, mementos, and a strange little box with this person’s hair in it…sort of a long tress of brown and gray, tied with a ribbon. It was fascinating!

Just as we’d get really into our discoveries, though we’d get spooked, because we could definitely feel/sense that we were being watched. Maybe it was the original owner of the trunk, but we never saw anyone…ghost or otherwise. We’d try to stick it out and keep looking, but it never failed, there would come a point where we had to run, run as fast as we could out of there, before the unseen entity grabbed at us.

I went in there lots of times by myself, even when I was told not to, but I couldn’t resist. I never knew what ever happened to that old trunk when my Grandma moved away. Wish I did.

Do you ever get the creepy, being watched feeling?

One more note: Later on, after I was grown up, when my Grandma would go out of town, she’d ask me to come over to water plants, get the mail, and just check that all was okay with the house while she was gone. I would do it, but I’ll tell you what…I did it in a hurry, because being in that quiet house all by myself, was almost too much to take. I could feel the watcher’s eyes on me the whole time!

There is one more story I can remember about strange things that happened in her house. I’ll post it tomorrow.

Thanks for reading my true ghost stories! Later I’ll tell you some things that happened in my own houses over the years!

Here is a post I wrote on September 13, 2013.

WAS THIS HOUSE HAUNTED?

My Grandma’s house always had a spooky feeling to it.   As a kid, my cousin and I would spend the night over there in the back bedroom……even though we were scared of that room.   It felt like something was watching us from up in the NW corner of the ceiling.   One night we heard what we swore were babies crying in the living room, so we sneaked in there to have a look.   The room was dim, but no lights were on.  What we saw was the old rocking chair just rocking back and forth, with no one in it.   Could this have been a ghost, rocking a ghost baby?   I don’t know, but that’s what we believed. There were many more strange things happened in that house.
I will tell more in later posts!
Peace, Love, & Light

And a little more about it in a later post:

Here’s a picture of the house today. It looks like a regular old house, doesn’t it? I don’t know who lives there now, but I always wonder if they have weird things happen in there like we used to, all those years ago. It looks about the same as when my grandparents lived there.

My next post will tell more about the creepy things I felt in and around the garage, which is over to the right, and back a bit.

Hope you’re enjoying hearing about my paranormal experiences!

Doppleganger

Doppleganger

DOPPLEGANGER

Doppleganger is a German word that means Double Walker. Other descriptive meanings include…
A paranormal double of a living person
A ghostly counterpart of a living person
A double
An alter ego
A person who has the same name as another
The sensation of having glimpsed oneself in one’s own peripheral vision, with no chance of it having been a reflection
Someone who looks spookily like you, but isn’t a twin
Ghost or Shadow of Yourself

Now that we’ve found out what the word ‘doppleganger’ means…how many of you have seen one? How many of you have been one?

I have had both experiences. I’ve seen people many times that look like someone I know. It’s a bit un-nerving, when you realize who you are seeing is not the person you know.

Maybe you smile or wave to them across the way, but they don’t react…or just look at you like you are the weird one. I’ve even gone up to them, said their name, just to be informed that they were not my acquaintence. Then, I had to explain and apologize for the mistaken identity. They usually laugh about it.

One time I saw my daughter, who lived in another state at the time, in the video store here in town. that was pretty strange. I knew she was not here…but, it looked just like her! Another time, at the same video store, I saw the members of the pop band “Green Day”. They were just being normal customers, looking for a video to rent.

Another perspective is the way people come up to me, thinking I’m their friend. I tell them I’m not who they think I am. One lady kept insisting I was! She kept calling me by this other person’s name, and I kept denying I was that person. She was very upset about it. It was such a strange situation to be in.

I know that there are at least two other ladies that live around here that has the same name as me. One of them was funnily enough, the mother of someone my daughter worked with.

I’ve seen someone, a stranger, that looks like my sister at a restaurant here. She doesn’t even live in this town, and was not here visiting.

I seen someone that looked like my late Dad, at a phone store.

Yes, I discretely took their picture.

I’ve always heard that every person has a doppleganger somewhere in the world. I think it would be fun to see my own…or maybe a bit creepy!

What about you? Would you want to meet your doppleganger?

UFO MUSEUM, ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO

We visited the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico, a few years ago. It was during the annual 4th of July UFO Festival. The city is geared up for a good time. There are street vendors, concerts, and some people even wear funny costumes.

The museum is a cool place to wander around in. There are displays of actual newspapers from 1947, telling of the UFO crash, investigation, and possible cover-up by the government. You can see set up displays, depicting what happened. There is art, and photo opportunities everywhere in the building. You can even pose in the many scenes, with the aliens, which in this case, are rubber dummys. It’s all in fun, and the kitschy displays are funny. There is a gift shop, also, where you can buy all things UFO and alien related.

They also had invited several authors to the museum for book signings and sales. At another venue, there were many more authors set up, signing their books, and visiting with the people who came by. There were several scheduled speakers in the auditorium.

We didn’t stay for the night-time festivities, but there are bands playing music, street dances, and I’m sure everyone had fun. So, whether you believe in UFOs, aliens, or not, Roswell and the UFO museum and festival, is a wonderful place to spend some time, if you get the chance.

A True Tale of Teleportation

As promised, here is another of my true tales of teleportation. At least, that is what I call these incidents. We were totally bewildered by the whole incident.

Have you ever been at a certain place, and then suddenly, without knowing how, you are at another place? This happened to me and my daughter, one summer day, not long ago.

We’d been out and about town, going to yard sales, on a Saturday morning. We’ve done this off and on for years, and we know the streets and areas pretty well. Once in awhile, we drive around an unfamiliar neighborhood, trying to find the advertised address, without too much trouble.

This morning was about the same, and we did find the yard sale. It was in a little housing area just to the south of the city. To get there was no problem…just one turn from the main road, then into the residential streets. We did our shopping, then got back in the car to go find more sales.

We pulled back onto the main road we’d come in on; that much I know. It should have been the one turn, back the way we’d come. I know we turned in the right direction…north. However, nothing looked the same at all, now. The housing area where we’d just been, was not there anymore. It should have been off to our right, but there was no sign of it at all. We didn’t see any of the landmarks we’d noticed on the way there, and even the dip in the road and the stop sign, we’d taken note of earlier, was not there, now.

We kept driving straight, along this road, hoping to see something we recognized. The whole time, we kept remarking about how weird this was. We couldn’t figure it out. We felt really lost…in our own town, and were getting nervous about it.

Finally, finally we saw a street sign that told us where we were. But, it seemed impossible that we were at this place and on this street, now. We’d only made the one turn, back toward town. Now we were miles away from where we’d been, and in a completely different area and on this different street. We’d have had to make even more turns to get on this one.

We were relieved to know where we were, now, but still had no explanation of how it happened…except that maybe, just maybe, we’d been through a time/place/space warp…or something!

There could have been a portal that swallowed us up, moving us to the other place. We didn’t feel anything, we didn’t see anything…we just found ourselves in a completely different place in that split second.

I don’t have any idea why, or how this happened, but since it did, and we were eventually able to find our way back, it seems pretty amazing. I wouldn’t mind doing it again, but would like a warning that it was going to happen, first!

My Mission – Ghost Hunt – A to Z Blog Challenge 2019 – Letter M #AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter M

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2019/04/

***

I’d never tried this before, but it was my mission to find out if I could do it … ghost hunting!

I’ve always had crazy, unexplained thing happen in the houses I’ve lived in, even this house I live in now. These incidents happened in the house I grew up in, my grandmother’s house, and houses I lived in when we moved to other states, and have been pretty common. I’ve related some of those stories in my other posts here.

Up until recently, I’d never heard of people going on ghost hunting adventures, but I’ve seen the TV shows, and have read a lot on the subject. I decided that I would conduct one of my own, right here in the house, as this is where lots of weirdness happens.

As I am totally an amateur at this, I just used the equipment I had available, and the knowledge of how an investigation should go. I’ve found what to look for in photos, what to listen for on recordings, and the terminology. It is all so interesting. So, recently, I set up an EVP session. That is Electronic Voice Phenomenon…recording on tape, a spirit voice.

Weird things happen in my house, so why not try to get some evidence right here? I get my little tape recorder, my scanner, some old antiques, and go into the bedroom. This is the bedroom where the heavy mirror levitated and then fell to the floor and broke. (in the story ‘Identified Flying Objects’) If there were spirits in this room, I wanted to find out.

The antiques were there, just in case something was hovering around or attached to them…some entity from beyond. The police scanner, I used for some background white noise. I set it on a frequency that was just static.

After setting the stage, by placing everything on the bed, I turned on the recorder, and I spoke aloud to whomever was present. I said if anyone is here, feel free to speak. Then, I left the room, closing the door. Out in the main part of the house, all was quiet. The cats were all asleep, and I had the tv turned off, and no music was playing. I left the recorder going for about 30 minutes. I couldn’t wait any longer to find out if I’d ‘caught’ anything on tape.

Putting on headphones, I began listening to the recording. At first, it was just the static noise from the scanner. The white noise seemed to go on forever…but then, I heard a voice! For real! I rewound the tape, listening again, and again. The same thing, the same phrase repeated every single time. There was only the one instance, nothing before this and nothing after. It is difficult to make out EVPs, but when you do get a voice, there’s no mistaking it.

Here’s what I heard… “I’m coming back” or “I’ll be coming back”.

As I said, it is hard to make out the exact words, but that is what it sounded like, to me. Over and over, I heard the same phrase. I took a few pictures in the room, just in case I would see something weird, but I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary.

Later, I took a picture of the broken mirror that had flew around this room. It had been out in the garage for a long time, in not great conditions, with the dust and all out there. However, I did see what I thought was an orb, a roundish spot of light, that shouldn’t have been there. I did send it to a professional ghost hunter I know, to have her evaluate it. It was just as I expected, though…just dust floating around the air. Maybe another time I will get something on film.

Anyway, that was my experience of ghost hunting in my own house. I’m convinced there is something here…something unknown. It doesn’t scare me, or bother me at all. I’m just very aware of strange things going on here. I do have more crazy things to tell. I’ll be adding more of my true ghost stories, in coming days.

Have you had any paranormal experiences? I’d love to hear them!

I accomplished my mission … have you?

Here’s me looking for ghosts at a known haunted house in town (not ours), and the house. I was peeking in the window at the other side of this house. When I took the picture I was outside looking in, and my reflection was in an old mirror on the antique dresser inside.

Mystery Box Chickens ask, “Where are you?”

***

 

 Do you have reason to believe that actual objects can be teleported from one place to another, by paranormal means?

If you’ve read my other posts, on this subject, you already know that I believe it is possible. It happened to me and my daughter, and to my cat, Weena.

There are a few more incidents of this kind, involving non-living objects, too…right here in the house.

This first one concerned a recipe I was looking for. It was for brownies…a favorite recipe I’ve used for years, because they always turn out great, and are easy to make.

It had been written in a little notebook, on blue paper, probably a little larger than an index card. The notebook had come apart a long time ago, but I still had the little blue pages of recipes. This one was hand-written by my mother, so I didn’t want to lose it. She had passed on quite a few years ago.

Anyway, I wanted to make a pan of brownies, so I looked in the kitchen drawer, where I keep recipes, but couldn’t find it. I found lots of those blue pages, with other recipes written on them, and several books, and other papers, but this brownie one was not there where it should have been.

I did look in one more place, just in case it had been put in there. It was a clear, plastic storage bin of drawers, that held kitchen items. It wasn’t there, either. I mean, I took everything out of both places, going through each bit of paper, and book, more than one time.

Finally I gave up ever finding it. It was lost.

I sat down at the table, for a few minutes, just thinking, where could it be? So, I tried something…I spoke out loud, asking my mother if she knew where it was, and could she help me find it. After another few minutes, I got the funny feeling that I should look over to the clear, plastic cart of drawers.

I look, and immediately see the recipe in the bottom drawer, in the front, in plain sight. There was no mistaking it, and it was not there, before.

I go over and get the recipe…yes, it’s the brownie recipe I’d been searching for. I got to make the brownies that day, after all.

Now…how do you explain something like that? I think, with my mother’s help, that it was able to re-materialize here, from some other place…another dimension? a parallel universe? I’ll never know where it was, or how it came back, I guess. But, I believe it was teleported from somewhere.

Maybe, it was the power of believing that helped it to manifest back over here, in our reality, because I really wanted some brownies!

This is the original recipe page. It is old, faded, and worn out. I covered it in plastic, and it looks a mess, but I’m so glad I still have it.

DEVIL RADIO

Phenomenon…An extraordinary, impressive, significant, unusual, unaccountable occurrence or fact that is perceptible by the senses.

That’s what I would call the Devil Radio incident…a phenomenon.

The incident happened a few years ago. I’ve always listened to the radio, late at night. My favorite program to hear, is Coast 2 Coast. It comes on at midnight, in our time zone, and topics range from conspiricy theories, ghosts, numerology, UFOs, bigfoot, and all types of weird and wonderful things you could ever imagine. They have guests from time to time, that speak on their experiences.

This night, they said they were going to interview a person that claimed he was the Devil.

Well, like I mentioned, there are some pretty far out there topics covered on this program, some believable, some not so much.  However, this was one I really didn’t want to hear…seemed too scary, to me. I kept the radio on, right up until the time came for the interview, then I turned it off. I keep my transistor radio by the pillow, so I can just reach up and turn it off if I want to, without getting out of bed.

So, I tried turning it off…but it wouldn’t stop playing the radio program.

I switched it on and off again, just to make sure…and I was sure it was turned off. But, it kept playing. I turned the dial to different stations, all across the dial, and the same show was playing on all the stations. Meanwhile, the interview was starting, and I was hearing what I didn’t want to hear.

In the end, I removed the batteries from the radio, and that seemed to work. No more Devil person talking. I have no idea why this happened, or how. I don’t really know what such a thing would be called in paranormal terms, as I’ve never heard of it happening to anyone else.

It never happened again, even though I listened to many more programs after that night. Maybe my radio was possessed by the Devil that one time? Who knows…
