True Ghost Story: Haunted Garbage Can

Location: Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“Hi I would like to tell you a true story that happened in my home when I was 10 I think….I wasn’t the only one that witnessed it.

When I was just a small child I decided to lay down and watch a movie on tv. So as I was going to lay my blanket down I noticed something in the corner of my eye. I looked over and the most wacked thing happened. My garbage can had slowly laid itself down and than lifted itself up again.

I was pretty amazed so I had to investigate to see what caused it. At first I thought maybe it was a mouse or rat, so silly me was looking for a mouse or rat lol. Well When I couldn’t find a good reason for that to happen I ran down the hall screaming “we have a ghost DAD!!!!” …and I jumped into my parents bed and they just laughed at me. They somehow talked me out of believing that it was a ghost, so I went on to watch my movie.

A few days later my dad was sitting in the rocking chair watching tv and he witnessed the same thing more than once so he went to see a expert of some sort and he told him maybe someone who had died is trying to contact us. So we came home. Sure enough we got a phone call saying my cousin Jimmy was walking in a river, and the current had taken him under and that they can’t find him.

I guess this had happened the night the garbage can did that the first time. We looked above the can and there was his picture. To this day they still haven’t found his body. I miss him a lot; he was a great friend and a great cousin. Well I don’t know what you can make of this, but I thought I should post it anyway.”

True Ghost Story: Spirit Soothes Dental Patient

Location: London, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“I don’t know if this story qualifies but here it is. I had a dentist’s appointment in January of 2003, and had to get a tooth pulled. It was not a fun experience, for it was a little painful and afterwards at home {a few hours later} I was rinsing my mouth out with saltwater {sorry about details} in my tiny kitchen and I could feel someone beside me place their hand on my left shoulder.

Although there was no one there, I knew it was one of my spirits that visit me on regular basis. I turned and kinda looked in the area where one would be and said “I’m ok just rinsing my mouth out and hurting a little bit”. Who ever it was stayed for a few hours just to make sure I was all right. I thank them for looking in on me in a time of hurting. I find if you acknowledge the friendly ones they will be there for you in times of need.”

True Ghost Story: Haunted Stereo

Location: Manitoba, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“The first house I ever lived in, is the one I know of as home. I remember a few things that happened to us (my sister, brother and his wife) when I lived there. The stereo and tv would go on by themselves. The stereo didn’t have a timer, it was an old record player. My parents still have the tv to this day and it no longer flicks on by itself.

I remember waking up numerous times a night and hearing the sound of a train running through my house. And once awoke to an eyeball in my kool-aid.

These occurrences are nothing to what I am about to share with you… After my parents and I moved out of town, my brother, his wife and his daughter lived in the house. My brother is a truck driver and was not home at the time. My sister-in-law was sleeping when she heard the stereo system go on. She got up thinking her husband was home, only to find that no one was there. She turned off the stereo and crawled back into bed, confused. Not even ten minutes later, the stereo again went on. Getting a little nervous, she grabbed a glass, threw it down the stairs, and it shattered against the wall. The music stopped. She went into her daughters room, barricaded the door, opened the window and screamed for help. The cops were called by the neighbours and found no trace of a break in, and no one present. Though I would love to do an investigation, the house has been sold for years now and I do not know if the new family has experienced anything. But I would love to go home. Believe it or not, but this really happened.”

True Ghost Story: The Invocation

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“This scary occurrence I am about to tell did not happen to me, but to a close co-worker of mine. It took me a long time to get him to tell me, but here goes…

I have always been interested in the paranormal, but when I heard about this incident I was set back. I will call him Randy for privacy reasons. Randy was 16 at the time (he is now 22). He was a skeptic until this happened.

It was late into the night, Randy was sleeping peacefully until he awoke for no apparent reason. He then opened his eyes because he realized he was chanting words, and his arm was held up mid-air, under no control of his. The words coming from his mouth were “I invoke thee…” over and over. He was struggling inside to get control.

He looked around his room and saw a white mist speeding around and around the perimeters of his room. With his arm still ‘being’ held up and these words coming from his mouth he was starting to freak out.

Finally as quickly as it all happened to him, it stopped. As he lay in bed, his heart pumping and forehead sweating he tried to make some sense over what just happened. He told me that he ended up staying awake all night in fears that if he closed his eyes it would all happen again. This was his first and so far last experience like this. As he ended his story (when telling me) he said one last thing “ever since that night I have had nothing but bad luck”.

I have never heard something like this before. He claims to have been fully awake, and I have no reasons for not believing that. Pretty interesting huh? Thanks for listening.”

True Ghost Story: Footsteps On The Stairs

Location: Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“We moved when I was 10, but before that, we lived in a very old house. My grandparents and great grandparents lived in this house after they immigrated from Ireland. As a small child, I didn’t think there was anything wrong with the people who came and looked at me in the middle of the night. I did however feel scared when I heard squeaking noises going up the corridor and footsteps on the stairs. It may sound like nothing but since I’ve discovered that I possess the gift and many more things like this have happened to me even as an adult.

Sometimes it still scares me, but I’ve learned to treat it as a gift and not a curse.”

True Ghost Story: Ghost Does Laundry

Location: Lacombe, Alberta, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“My fiancé and I had just moved into an old trailer in Lacombe that his sister and her family previously owned. When we moved in she had said, “watch out for the ghost”. Of course we didn’t take her serious.

Only a few days of being in the home I was standing at the sink in the kitchen (facing north) and my fiancé was at the south end of the trailer in the bedroom. I heard a whistle directly behind me and no one was there. Then less than a month later we bought a puppy (3mos old). There’s a basement only below the addition that seems very old, like an old cellar. Our dog won’t even go near the door, even if we go down. She also barks at an unknown presence as she stares down the hallway or basement door or kitchen.

Now this is the one that really makes me want to move out. One night in the summer I was having trouble sleeping and my fiancé woke up around 4 am to go to the washroom. As he was coming back towards the living room he was really scared and telling me that he had just seen a ghost! I didn’t believe him at first, then I realized how scared he seemed.

He said that while he was washing his hands he saw something by the laundry basket in the hallway out of the corner of his eye. So, he looked over and had to do a double take. There was an older woman in what I call prairie-style clothing, she was bent over our laundry basket as though she was about to fold clothes. He told me that as soon as he realized what he was seeing and became scared, she

One night we were lying in bed and both of us felt tugging at the end of our blanket. I had to move out to the living room that night.

Also, one night we were sleeping in the addition when we awoke to our dog barking and as we awoke we realized we could hear foot steps in the kitchen (connected to the addition).

We’re due with a new arrival in May and I don’t know if I’d like to stay here, although whoever it is seems friendly, it still scares me.”
