Hello Moms,

I'm an editor at CafeMom's TheStir.com. We are starting a series of articles featuring real, everyday moms just like you. We want to give moms a chance to tell their amazing stories of survival and triumph when faced with unimaginable situations. We are looking for a woman who has had a supernatural encounter. That could include living in a haunted home or having an unusual interaction with a ghost or some other supernatural being. If you or someone you know has lived through a supernatural encounter, we would love to hear all about it.

If you are not comfortable using your real name, that is fine. You can share anonymously. If you are interested in sharing or have questions, please email us directly at esouter@cafemom.com.

 

Best,

Ericka

I have always been a very spirital person, even though we didn't go to church much as kids.   When I was 22 and just a few weeks shy of graduating college, my father passed away unexpectedly.  He was only 52.  My father was definitely the man of the house - he was the sole provider, made all of the decision, and was a good, dependable father.   

He hadn't been feeling well for a few days, flu-like symptoms, so mom took him to the hospital. They confirmed he had had a minor heart attack.  We felt so relieved that we knew what was wrong and that he would be OK.   I stopped by the ER after class to see him and Mom.   I could hear his big boisterous laugh as he was talking to the doctors and nurses.    As mom was giving me an update, the staff escorted us to a private room.  In mid-sentence, my dad died.  Apparently a blood clot from the heart attack broke loose and burst in his brain stem.  He died instantly.   It was such a shocker. This man, bigger than life, was suddenly gone.  It didn't make sense.

I had to run outside for air. It was a gorgeous spring day. Blue skies, no clouds, calm - no wind.   As I was standing out there, feeling loss, grief, pain.....a felt a strange wind.  It was very strong and it went through me.  I knew and still know, that wind was my father's spirit.   It lasted a millisecond, but I knew it was him.   After that happened, I immediately felt calmer and in charge of the situation.  I was able to talk to the doctors, get mom home, call family, etc...  It is like so much of his strength and resilience was passed onto me in that instance.   I wish I could explain what it was like to feel his presence move through me.  It was beautiful, peaceful, amazing...there just aren't words.

I will state that this may sound very similar to the Poltergiest movie, where little Carol Ann passes tthrough her mother.  My experience was very similar to that.  I just knew it was Dad and he let me know everything would be ok.

I saw a girl get possessed, we were in a friend's house, I was outside hanging out when we heard the girl's mom crying and screaming, we walked in and my friend who is a big guy was struggling to hold her down. I say she was possessed because she was talking in a man's voice (this was a 17 yr old girl, 110 lbs) she pushed her brother off and dropped to the floor then she elevated off the floor, her torso was up in the air and only her feet and head were touching the floor. It was horrible, most people left. I stayed and helped the brother hold her down telling the spirit to go away, I don't know why I did that, I've always been spiritual and felt like I could help, after a while she came back, she didn't remember anything.

Recently a friend and I went to this place called Wood County Historical Museum near where I live.

It used to be a hospital for the mentally insane, but now you can walk through and do tours, etc. Or you can just walk by yourself.

Well we didn't realize they closed at 4 so by the time we got there we only got to see one building.

We were in the building and there was stairs there roped off saying Do Not Enter. We were standing right there at the bottom of the stairs and I KID YOU NOT, WE HEARD FOOTSTEPS GOING UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS.

I looked at my friend and I'm like, are you doing that somehow? They weren't. They weren't even moving.

But we know what we heard. No doubt about it. We definitely heard footsteps going up and down the stairs but nothing was there.

I plan on going back with a different friend soon to explore more of the buildings. They have trails, etc you can walk on that belonged to the hospital when it was an asylum.

My family has always gone to church and been really involved. A little over 10 years ago, my sister bought some music online (evil music, not stuff Christians should be listening to). We both still lived with my mom and dad at the time. The music came in and she was listening to it in the house. The night she got it in, I fell asleep in her room on the floor. In the middle of the night I woke up to see the outline of a person standing above me. I freaked out and crawled into bed with my sister. I told her what happened and after that we both lay awake listening to breathing in the same room that we were in. We would hold our breath every now and then to see if it could still be heard. It went on for about 2 hours until my mom woke up. We told her what happened and she annointed the house with oil and threw out all the music my sister had purchased.

I've had several. Most were in a house I used to own. There was one time I was alone in my bedroom and felt someone sit on my bed. I was wide awake so I know it wasn't a dream, the blankets even pulled down with it. Another times I was home with my three small children alone and a lantern we had hanging was swinging back and forth but no one had been near it. And another time I heard strange rolling noises coming from my attic, like dozens of marbles rolling back and forth. This was after we had renovated our house.

I was also touched on my side by three fingers when no one was around me at a haunted house.

Numerous times. I've always been sensitive to the paranormal. The house we live in is where my husbands step-grandarents both died. A few months ago I was doing laundry. Due to my four year old not being fully potty trained yet a pair of his shoes were in there. Right before I left to go to work I started the dryer. When I got home after work, the dryer was open and looked like it had been rifled through. I asked my husband why he stopped the dryer and he said he didn't. Before bed I restarted the dryer. About half an hour later we heard some loud noises,  almost like foot steps, in the living room and then the dryer stopped. When I got up to check it out, the dryer was wide open and the clothes were still soaking wet. 

Growing up my family would do a lot of hiking and visit ghost towns a lot. One time, I was about 13-14, we were visiting one and I was walking up the hill to where my dad was. The entire time I was walking up the hill it felt like there was a little girl, under 5 years old, holding my hand. My younger sisters were at the ghost town with us, but they were in a different area with my mom and brother. When I got to my dad he asked if one of my sisters was with me because he could sense a little girl with me as well. 

That's not even half of it.

Yes, there is such a thing. What you bring into your home can open up the door for the supernatural to come in.

When I was three or four years old we lived in a house in Wichita, Kansas that had been an old plantation house that had been split into apartments. My mother told me that one night she heard me screaming and she came running out of her room to see me running down the hall from the bathroom. I had gone to the bathroom on my own and she told me that I told her there was a man in the bathroom. She of course went running into the bathroom to kill someone and found no one. The bathroom window was too small for anyone to fit through and upon searching out part of the house she didn't find a trace of anyone having broken in. She asked me to describe the man and I told her he had a pair of guns, revolvers, was wearing a pinstripe suit and had a mustache. I never saw the man again, but I wouldn't go to the bathroom by myself anymore. 

About a month later she was cleaning up the kitchen sink when she found that the back wall was a false wall and pushed it out of the way. Inside was a small area big enough for a person to fit in, old bottles, an old blanket and pinned to the wall the pin stripe suit. She was freaked out to say the least. When I was six years old my mom brought it up again around my grandparents. My grandfather had all these books about the old west with pictures in them so he pulled them out and told me if I saw the person to tell him. As he was flippig through I did see the person and the picture I pointed at was one of Wyatt Earp wearing the exact same suit as the man in the bathroom.
