Vancouver Ghosts: I Heard Someone Whisper My Name

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Katy on June 1, 2014:

“I’ve always been around people who dealt with ghosts/told ghost stories, especially growing up. One of the first times I actually seen a ghost was when I was 11, I was sitting in my bedroom – It was dark, I had the lights out and I remember feeling the sudden urge to turn my head, and I did. And just as I did that I saw the largest orb I’ve ever seen. I froze, and I remember just staring at it for what felt like centuries before it flew across the room and disappeared.

Another weird story was that my friend was moving out, I was helping her move, I think I was 13 at this time.. My friend and her dad took the last of the boxes and it was just me in the house. Prior to this my friend and her dad always talked about ghosts, said they felt they were haunted but it was just something I sort of shrugged off. So, just me being in the room I turned around and there was a plastic grocery bag, and I remember I was going to pick it up and it started moving, like literally like someone had it between their hands and they started squishing it. I saw the entire thing, freaked me out.

One more: I was 16, my mom was asleep and it was dark out, probably around 12 AM and it was around late December. I had some tea and I was walking upstairs to my bedroom before I heard someone whisper my name, multiple times it seemed, in my ear. It was almost like it had an echo, it just kept repeating itself.. “Katy, Katy”.

Before that I’ve seen shadow people in that exact hallway while walking to my bedroom – perhaps I’ll share those stories next.”

Vancouver Ghosts: Blacked Out Eyes

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Taylor on July 10, 2013:

“When me and my best friend (Devan) were around 11 or 12 years old we were walking home from school one day. We walked past this really old house, I quickly glanced at it and kept on walking, then stopped as I thought I saw something. So I took a couple steps back and stared at the house. In the window there stood a little girl with blonde hair and with a light blue dress, as if it was one to be worn back on the old days. I yelled for Devan and she saw it too. The girl in the window had almost blacked out eyes, but it looked like she was staring at us. Then slowly she put her hand up with a doll that looked exactly like her (except with eyes) and she shook it. Devan and I ran as fast as we could!

When we were walking (after we got really far away from the house) she said to me “promise not to tell anyone unless something like this happens again and we get hurt . Alright ?” I said “of course”, then we went to our houses. The next morning I woke up with scratches all over my arm so I got dressed and hid them so my mother didn’t see them and ask what had happened. So I got ready for school as fast as I could and ran over to Devan’s house . As we were walking to school I showed her the scratches on my arm and she had the same ones, it was quite confusing. After school we walked by the house again and we walked up to the door steps and she knocked on the door. We stood there for about a minute or two but no one answered, and I said to Devan “ya know I have never ever seen anyone around, going in or coming out of this house”. She said “me either, plus there are crows only on this one and not on any other house on this block “. And I shook my head agreeing with her. When we got to her house we decided to tell her mom because she is very good with that paranormal stuff and she whispered “Ali”.”

Vancouver Ghosts: Old Woman Cooking While Humming

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Sabina on June 26, 2012:

“I once lived in a house in Vancouver which was built in 1939, we lived next to a church. Whenever in the house I felt like I was being watched. Sometimes I felt a breath on my neck, or a presence behind me. But one encounter really stood out. I’ve always had trouble falling asleep. So this was very strange. Late at night I was in my bed, when all of a sudden I felt like I was surrounded, even though I could only see one silhouette, in the shape of a tall man. He approached me and said “Shhhh… It’s all right.” Then he put his hand on my forehead, it was as cold as ice. Then I closed my eyes and fell asleep instantly.

Another time I was once sleeping downstairs because I was having a sleepover. I suddenly heard humming from the kitchen. I knew that once when the house was first built an old women lived in the house. As I quietly went into the kitchen, I saw an old woman cooking while humming. I ran back to bed. I never saw her again.

Whenever going in to the basement I always felt an aura of jealously, as if ghosts were watching me wishing they could be young and alive again.”

Vancouver Ghosts: The Nasty Devil and Angel

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website on Dec 17, 2011:

“I was spending time with my friends. We had a new loghouse located at the forest near Stanley Park. We thought one of our guests was a thief due to missing items, so we sent them away. After a while, there were unusual things happening… items flying around the room by itself.

One time, my friend reported windows breaking so I went outside to catch the vandal. But there was no trace of someone in sight.

Then the nasty spirit started to talk, it sounded like an evil voice that nobody has heard before. It was saying insults personally directed to my friend, then it started to threaten to break his leg if he didn’t leave.

Then another time lots of people came even challengers, the spirit claimed to be both a devil and angel. It left all of us terrified and confused. After the challenger left, a pastor came and sang hymns with all of us. The evil spirit joined in laughing at the efforts for driving him away. It left, but threatened to return the next day. Me and my friends decided to leave from our terrifying experience. Then it all stopped, maybe the spirit was living there and didn’t like trespassers arriving.”

Vancouver Ghosts: I Refuse To Go Back There

Location: North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Lynn on Oct 26, 2010:

 “I moved in with my boyfriend to the basement of his grandmother’s house. My boyfriend had disclosed to me that when he was around seven years old he saw the face of a demon through the window downstairs. After a month I began to cry when I would have to be left alone in the house. It always felt like someone, or something, did not want me in the house. When i would work out by myself in the hallway (the only space for my treadmill) I would hear a man’s voice in my head saying “get out” “just leave” “go away”. I knew it wasn’t my imagination as I had never heard the male voice before. I told my boyfriend about this. His grandfather and uncle are both deceased, and he told me they both agreed that girlfriends or boyfriends were not allowed overnight. It was forbidden. I began talking to the voices when I worked out, saying that I respected the grandmother very much. I thought maybe if it was a disgruntled spirit I must be calming it, or at least calming my imagination.

But a month later new things happened. I would wake up every night at 3am, as if someone was telling me to wake up. I always went back to sleep, but the regularity of it seemed odd. After a couple weeks of that when I’d wake up at 3am I would go and sleep in my 2 year old son’s bed with him. The instant I layed down I began hearing voices in my head (and no I do not have any mental history). I would hear my boyfriend’s mom crying like she were a little girl, I’ld hear the other siblings saying horrible things like “don’t do that” “help me” “no.” I was hearing all of them in my head when they were children. I also began seeing in my head memories that weren’t mine. Like hiding under a bed afraid, or running away. I told all this to my boyfriend, he believed me and told me his family past. Well turns out the siblings were abused I guess in some form, and always were abusing each other. I guess growing up in the home was a fearful thing. I don’t know if an actual spirit was giving me these experiences, or maybe it was just the energy of the house. But since we moved out I refuse to go back there.”

Vancouver Ghosts: Sleep Paralysis Symptoms

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Kimberly on Sept 4, 2010:

“I was sleeping, and all of a sudden, approximately 3:00 am, I heard this high pitch sound. When I started to notice it, I heard sounds of people talking. When I tried to get up, I couldn’t. I couldn’t move my head, or any of my body parts, only my eyes. I tried to scream, but nothing came out. I screamed so loud, but it came out as a whisper. Then suddenly, I felt something on my chest. I tried to move. Then I felt something cold, like hands, grabbing me, by my arms. Then I saw this ghost, and she was dressed in a white wedding dress. When I could finally move, she was gone.”
