1. Samantha is right here

"My wife had a miscarriage at twenty weeks. It was a girl and we were going to name her Samantha. A couple days later, my wife hears our two year old talking in her room in the middle of the night. She goes up and asks her what she's doing and she tells my wife, 'I'm talking to Samantha. She's on the ceiling.'" - S011110M4112

2. A terrifying coincidence

"I awoke one evening back in 2015. I remember waking up really thirsty and going for a drink of water in the kitchen. I kept thinking 'dag gum' for some reason. Like, 'get the dag gum cup, pour the dag gum water,' which is weird because I don't say that. Ever. So anyway, fast forward to the next morning. I get up and drive across town to meet my father-in-law to help him move a refrigerator and on my way I drove through the scene of a bad car/motorcycle accident. The rider on the motorcycle was on the ground on his stomach and as I passed by, my blood ran cold when I saw the little license plate on his bike that read 'DAG GUM'....." - stodolak

3. Did all of you hear that?

"It was about midnight and I was chillin' in my room, watching some show with the volume on low as one does when it's nighttime and the house is quiet. I'm minding my own business when I get this sudden chill up my spine and my stomach drops. Before I can even be like 'huh, that's weird,' I hear this piercingly loud sound of a woman screaming with her mouth closed...only the sound is both directly in my ear and also coming from the living room directly outside my bedroom door. It lasts for maybe two seconds before the house becomes silent again." - hoobofstank

4. Nana's rocking chair

"I grew up in Northern New England just north of the White Mountain National Forest. I’ve experienced things my entire life — when my great grandmother passed my mom would find me on the floor of our den having conversations with her empty rocking chair — completely alone — in the middle of the night. Whenever she’d find me, she’d ask who I was talking to — well Nana, of course! This happened for years and I have no memory of these times, I can only tell you that I was a super soft lil dude and I wouldn’t have wondered into a dark room without a compelling reason." - jessyblorp

5. There was someone standing on top of me

"I lived in an old apartment in 2002. The place was built in 1900, so it was just over 100 years old when I moved in. One night I was dead asleep when there was a loud BANG on my bedroom door. When I got up the courage to get out of bed, I checked the apartment and all the windows were closed and locked from the inside, the door still had the chain secured, no one was in there... A month or more after I was woken to the bang on my door, I was dead asleep. But something woke me up, and it was a pressure on me like being held down. It was pitch black in my room, I couldn't see anything, but I knew someone was standing over me. When I could finally turn on a bedside lamp no one was there. After then I couldn't sleep in the dark, I had to sleep with a lamp on." - tightiewhities37

6. They just want to be a part of the family

"My father passed away almost 11 years ago, but I’ve seen him three times since.

The first time was in middle school. I was working on a family tree project and was asking my mother about his side of the family. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw him walk out of the room he died in, heading towards his favorite spot on the couch.


The second time was a year or two later. I’d had an awful day, one of the worst in memory, and as I was walking across the hall to the bathroom I caught a glimpse of him sitting at his old spot at the table, reading a newspaper.

The last time was the most clear. My senior year of high school. My mother and I were sitting at that same table, talking about college plans. I mentioned I was applying to the rival school of my father’s alma mater. Just then, I saw him walk, again from the room he died in, over to the counter, where he grabbed a coffee cup and walked towards his bedroom. I guess they just like to check up with us every now and then." - gingerfer

It's hard to believe in the existence of ghosts and spirits in a scientific world. But when real people tell real stories, you can't help but wonder. What's your opinion?
