The Blue Bell Hill Ghost

The Blue Bell Hill Ghost

One of the most famous paranormal reports to come out of Kent is that of the Blue Bell Hill ghost – it has been covered by all the top British newspapers and registers many repeat experiences…


The Suicidal Woman

The most famous paranormal entity from this haunted road is that of a woman who chooses to run out in front of motorists late at night. Eyewitness reports claim that she stands still and locks eyes with the driver before being hit by the vehicle.

Once the car hits this female entity she immediately vanishes – No evidence of a collision has ever been found, nor has there ever been a victim found either.

Research into this area points to this paranormal entity being that of a lady who died tragically in 1965, near the bridge over The Old Chatham Road.

She was involved in a two-car collision when transporting three of her friends to a function. Only one of the women travelling in the car survived the crash.

The driver of the car was due to be wed to her childhood sweetheart the following day – many locals believe that it is her ghost that haunts the Blue Bell Hill.


Paranormal Reports Linked to Blue Bell Hill

About four years after the tragic collision, a male driver posted a report that claimed he had seen two female entities walking down the road towards his car. He was on his way home to Rochester, late at night, when he saw two pedestrians walking towards him.

They had a slight light glow to them as they walked along the roadside so the man slowed down to get a better look. As soon as his car decreased in speed the pair of pedestrians vanished into thin air.

Paranormal Reports Linked to Blue Bell Hill

The same man is reported to encountered the same two ghostly pedestrians about 3 months later.

This time they decided to walk in the middle of the road causing the driver to smash straight through them. When he stopped to check on the carnage behind him there was no sign of the two pedestrians he had hit!


The Maurice Goodenough Incident

Maurice Goodenough was a bricklayer from nearby Rochester. Late at night, on the 13th of July, 1974, he was shocked to witness a young girl hurl herself in front of his car as he drove along Blue Bell Hill.

He slammed on his brakes and jumped out of the car to tend to the girl he had hit, she was lying injured at the side of the road.

Having no medical training, Maurice had no idea what to do with the injured girl. He figured moving her would only make matters worse, so he covered her in a blanket from the back of his car and sped off to the nearby police station in Rochester.

When he returned with the police to the scene of the accident there was no sign of the girl. All that was left on the side of the road was the blanket he had used to cover her injured body.

Police called an official search on the area that went on for a couple of days – all the local hospital records were checked but there had been no admissions matching the description of the girl.

The Maurice Goodenough Incident

Goodenough was interviewed by the News of the World that Saturday night and stuck to his story…even though he was still extremely traumatised by the incident.

He claimed that he was not mad – he had definitely hit a young lady that had simply vanished.

The press had a field day with his paranormal claims and eventually published articles covering the accident back in 1965 – was this girl the ghost of one of the female passengers who had died tragically that night?


The Ian Sharpe Incident

Late one Sunday evening in November, 1992, Ian Sharpe, a 54-year-old coach driver was on his way home to Maidstone.

When he neared the Aylesford southbound turn-off of the A229 at Blue Bell Hill, a young woman walked straight in front of his vehicle. He claimed that the woman calmly stood there and stared straight into his eyes as he crashed into her and run straight over her body.

Sharpe got out of his vehicle fearing the worse…but when he checked the area he found no sign of a body.

Shaken and petrified, he travelled straight to the local police station.

The police managed to calm him down and eventually explained that the area had received many similar reports over the years – it was as though they believed the paranormal incidents themselves.

They did agree to return to the area of the accident with Sharpe but yet again – no body was found. Ian Sharpe later described it as the most terrifying experience of his life.

Violent Bigfoot Encounters – 1855

Violent Bigfoot Encounters - 1855

I think I’m correct in saying that this is the first Bigfoot/Yeti/Sasquatch article that we have published on this site – so it’s way overdue really!

In this article we will be taking a look at one of the most violent Bigfoot encounters on record – the report from 1855, in what is now known as Oklahoma


Native American Bigfoot Legends – 1855

In 1855 in what is now Oklahoma, a small group of native Americans and a ‘half breed’ man named Joshua LeFlore were part of a cavalry unit put together to keep the peace in their local region.

LeFlore was the captain of this native American unit and he had recently received orders to locate and capture/stop a band of outlaws who were terrorising some of the local farmers.

There had been numerous reports linking these outlaws to crop stealing and the kidnapping of innocent children in the area.

LeFlore gathered up 30 of his men and rode off into the sunset to put an end to this outlaw outfit…


The Discovery

After a couple of days of searching in vain, LeFlore decided to call it quits and head back to their local headquarters. It was shortly after this point in time that one of his men noticed something in the distance.

LeFlore pulled out his telescope and zoomed in on what appeared to be a small group of men, not more than 600 yards away from their position.

The group of lawmen charged towards the men in the distance and watched them disperse into the nearby forest. LeFlore ordered his men to follow the fleeing group.

As soon as they entered the forest they became aware of a strong, stale odour of rotting flesh and blood – the forest area actually smelled like death itself!

Native American Bigfoot Legends

Before long the strong smell seemed to ‘spook’ the group’s horses and they bolted from the wooded area leaving the cavalry men to proceed on foot.

Eventually the group arrived at a small clearing…but this was certainly no ordinary bandit camp.

They found the bodies of numerous children scattered around the area in different stages of decay. Three hairy bipedal ape-like creatures were sitting among the corpses chewing the flesh off their bones.

This heartbreaking scene was all too much for LeFlore to handle – he raced into the creatures wielding his sword in one had and his pistol in the other.

The shot and stabbed at the three creatures numerous times but nothing seemed to put them down. Eventually he was caught out as one of the creatures managed to sneak up behind him…and rip his head clean off his body.


Native American Fury

Up until this point – the native American cavalry group had been rooted to the spot in shock and fear. The sight of their captain being decapitated finally snapped them out of their daze.

They calmly aimed for the ape creatures head’s and within seconds the fight was over. The sensible rifle head shots took out the small hairy group with ease.

Bigfoot in the Dark

With the creatures dead, the cavalry group now had time to investigate the area properly. They uncovered the bodies of 19 dead children from the local area.

The men set down their buffalo rifles and got to work on 20 graves – 19 for the poor children and one for their fallen captain.

The report indicates that the group opted to burn the bodies of the ape-like creatures, because they felt they were too evil to receive a proper burial.

Spring Heeled Jack Sightings

Spring Heeled Jack Sightings

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the Spring Heeled Jack sightings from 1808 to more recent incidents. What was this entity and what did it want?


1808

The first documented encounter of Spring Heeled Jack came to light in 1808 within the offices of the Sheffield Times.

The editor of the newspaper received a strange letter explaining about an entity/ghost that spent it’s time playing pranks on the living. Apparently this ghost had existed for many years.

The strange beast was able to jump huge heights from a standing position and seemed to be made out of thin air – striking the supernatural beast had no effect whatsoever (weapons just passed straight through it).

The author of the letter referred to this entity as Park Ghost and Spring Heeled Jack.


1837

In 1837 an unnamed female was outside Blackheath Fair in England when out of nowhere a strange figure appeared and started to violently attack her.

The lady ended up receiving numerous cut injuries to her skin and most of her clothes had been ripped off her body.

When she was later interviewed she claimed that the assailant had definitely been male but there was something ‘off’ about him. He had a surreal look of madness on his face and his fingers seemed to be long cold iron tips.

Jack on a rooftop

After hearing about the crime, the mayor of the area decided to publicize it to warn his public…and ended up receiving hundreds of letters claiming that they to had been attacked or chased by this strange, tall figure.


Vigilante Groups

Numerous people came forward with claims about being attacked by this strange creature – most of them were too scared about being labeled crazy to report the incidents before 1837.

Local vigilante groups were formed in an attempt to catch this crazed criminal.

These groups were extremely well setup by the public and patrolled the streets on a shift basis – they even encountered the entity on occasions but were unable to catch him due to his speed and athleticism.

Word soon spread from these groups to the public – they were not chasing a man…they were chasing something supernatural!


Further Attacks

About 12 months later the attacks seemed to grow in intensity. One night a young lady was walking home when something jumped out of the shadows and breathed blue flames at her.

The figure then closed it’s mouth and pounced away in a sort of kangaroo movement. The same night brought in many similar reports…

The reports consisted of a tall man with scary red eyes who could breathe blue fire and would always jump, never walk or run.

Park Ghost and Spring Heeled Jack

The final attack in London during this time period is probably the most famous, it involved a young lady named Jane.

Jane was having a conversation in her home with her visiting sister when she heard a loud knocking at her front door.

She was a little afraid of opening the door so she asked the visitor through the locked door who they were. The visitor quickly replied:

“I am a police officer for god sake bring me a light for we have caught Spring Heeled Jack”.

Jane hastily opened to the door, only to be confronted by a tall man breathing blue flames from his smiling mouth. She screamed and tried to close the door but she was too late – Spring Heeled Jack was on her clawing in a flash.

Thankfully Jane’s sister heard the screams and the two of them managed to get the entity back through the door. It then ran off into the darkness.


Let’s Move To The Country

The Spring Heeled Jack sightings died out until the 1870’s when for some reason, they moved to the English countryside.

Many incidents involved local groups in towns hunting down and setting up traps to catch the supernatural creature, but with no luck.

After these attacks it’s almost as if ‘Jack’ realized his time was up in the UK, and many believe he somehow moved on to America in the 1880’s…


New Hunting Grounds

During the 1880’s there were many reports in Kentucky of a tall man attacking people at night. Eyewitness reports claimed that the culprit had long icy cold iron like fingers, pointy ears and that he shot blue flames – but from his chest (not his mouth).

These incidents seemed to die out within months and all of a sudden…’Jack’ seemed to disappear from people’s minds.

This lull in attacks lasted up until 1939 when Cape Cod seemed to be hit by the strange entity.

Now Jack seemed to have new powers in his arsenal – eyewitnesses claim that he could now levitate and even had the power to disappear and reappear miles away within a blink of the eye!

It was at this time that Jack picked up the newer nickname of the Black Flash from the American public.

In recent times incidents involving ‘Jack’ have been reported in Canada (1973), Texas (1979) and back in the UK in 1986 (very famous case involving a British army officer).

Are Mermaids Dangerous?

Are Mermaids Dangerous?

One of the first ever ‘paranormal’ articles I published online covered the subject of mermaids…and I haven’t really touched on this subject ever since!

Most of us in the western world consider mermaids to be nothing more than mixed up folklore chucked onto the silver screen by Disney…but in other parts of the world mermaids are looked upon in an entirely different light…

So, are mermaids dangerous and do they really exist?

Below is a recent report from Zimbabwe…


The Boys

Not that long ago in Zimbabwe, a group of three young boys were messing about when they should of been herding cattle for their parents.

They were in the process of working with the cattle when they noticed a rather large fish splashing about in a nearby dam.

Two of the boys thought they were equipped enough to take on this impressive fish and decided to jump into the water and catch it with their bare hands…

To their horror…this was no ordinary fish…it was a local water spirit (mermaid).

a local water spirit (mermaid)

The boy who was left standing on the bank witnessed the strange creature drag the two boys under the water then pull them to the opposite bank.

He didn’t hang about for his friends – he immediately ran off in terror to get help.

He returned within minutes with a group of adults as backup and they found the two boys critically injured on the dam’s bank.

As they neared the stricken lads, the mermaid pounced back out of the water and dragged them back into it’s depths.

This time they did not return…alive.


The Dam Construction

This particular dam was built back in 2012 and many of the workers claimed to have had encounters with this evil water spirit.

During it’s construction, there were numerous worker reports of damaged machinery.

These reports all seemed to center around the same culprit – a water spirit.

The men in charge of the operation laughed off these suggestions until the dam workers started disappearing…and then reappearing as lifeless corpses floating on the water.

Was a mermaid really behind these strange deaths?


Rose

Just last month (Feb), a 45-year-old teacher named Rose was walking home from work when she realized she was late for an appointment.

She decided to take a short cut across the river…something most locals were far too afraid to attempt.

This turned out to be a bad choice…she was set upon by a mermaid and what she later described as a ‘merman’.

she was set upon by a mermaid and what she later described as a 'merman'.

She managed to escape her attackers and survive but she was left with some rather hideous injuries to her mouth and legs.

She later reported the attack to the police and showcased her injuries to the local press stating that the water spirits were savage yet extremely beautiful.


Are Mermaids Dangerous?

There’s no getting away from the fact that people in these parts of the world believe in the existence of mermaids – even the police are too scared to investigate these ‘cursed’ rivers and bodies of water.

Do they also believe in what the locals are saying?

Tips on Dealing with Paranormal Activities

We have listed some of the surefire ways on how you can deal with paranormal activities. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have already been equipped and armed with sufficient knowledge on what to do if you experience one in the future.

Perhaps it is normal to encounter things in life that may weird us out, frighten or scare us, or just outright make us scream at the top of our lungs. Even in this time and age when everything is easily accessible through the Internet, there are just things that Science finds difficult to explain.

Imagine catching yourself alone in your own house and for some reason a drawer opens up and the air is still and you are far away from it.

Who do you call?

For sure, you would have thought of Ghostbusters, but unfortunately, they are not real. But it’s a good thing that paranormal psychics are here to help you answer stranger questions from strange occurrences in your life brought about by paranormal activities.

But first, let us talk about what is the paranormal, because having had a paranormal experience does not necessarily mean you are dealing with ghosts of the dead or spirits from a different world.

These can very well be energies around you which mean you no harm.

Energies are able to communicate and, more often than not, only need help to know what happened to them so they can finally get a closure and move on.

We have listed some of the surefire ways on how you can deal with paranormal activities. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have already been equipped and armed with sufficient knowledge on what to do if you experience one in the future.


Learning Everything You Can About Paranormal

Not everyone is brave enough to do a research about the paranormal, especially at night. That is why we recommend that you do it out in public with the sun up where light is abundant.

We feel secure and safe in places where it is bright. When doing your research, steer clear of websites that have ominous background music or those that have really dark layout and color scheme.

These elements of the website should not distract you from learning what you want to learn. Watch out for websites that delve deep in the subject matter without using words that are unfamiliar to most humans.

You should be able to learn where most paranormal activities, sightings, and manifestations usually occur so you can prepare yourself should you encounter one in the future.


Being Skeptical and Logical at The Same Time Goes a Long Way

There will come a time when your brain will play tricks on you. It will make you see, feel, and hear—and ultimately make you believe—that you are indeed experience an out of this world activity. This happens mostly when we are scared.

Our minds conjure images that are really not there in the first place. What you can do is compose yourself and do not cause a scene, especially if you are in a public space.

Close your eyes and try to think well if there is a logical explanation of what happened. Those scary and weird noises on the second floor may just as well be mice, the wind, or pipes. It could be the television.

If you panic, you will likely cause a disturbance; worse, you might end up embarrassing yourself. Do not discount the fact that your friends may be playing a game with you, in other term, pranking you for fun.

This is not a good thing to do to someone as it may cause trauma and other permanent fear.


Asking For Professional Help

Some spirits, energies, or ghosts would bother you to no end, and it is normal that you feel scared and helpless. When this time comes and you are no longer able to sleep well at night because of this, asking for help from a paranormal psychic is not something that you should be ashamed of.

Professionals that can help you deal with these paranormal activities, sightings, and manifestations can be in the form of an exorcist, a psychic, a clairvoyant, or a medium.

These experts will know what to do with them and are able to provide you with necessary steps on what you can do to stop these from happening.

They will make sure that these spirits—evil or otherwise—are expelled from your property so you can start getting a good night’s sleep again. Amulets and charms are usually given by paranormal psychics to keep you safe from them, but methods are varying.

These professionals are trained to deal with the paranormal and their years of extensive research and psychic will speak for themselves. You may go online and check for their reputation so you can feel better.


Being Around Friends Also Helps

While professionals tend to your house and dispel the energies bugging you there, you can be with friends for the moment. There is strength in number, or so a popular saying goes.

Be with your close friends who would never take advantage of your situation and vulnerability. You may start talking about happy memories from the past to keep you distracted from the situation.

Whether they are your family, your close friends, your roommate, be with the people you trust the most who know how to calm you down in a very stressful situation; people who can easily lighten up the mood.

You can choose to put on a really funny movie and start laughing to your heart’s desire. Eat your favorite comfort food. You can also choose to go to the nearest church, if you are religious, and start praying and giving thanks for the good things you have received so far and ask for perpetual guidance and safety from the evil elements of this world.

There are worlds that coexists with us, and it is important to recognize that. Some entities, although invisible to the naked eye, are following us wherever we go as they are trying to communicate with us.

We hope that this article helped you enough on how you can react if you experience a paranormal activity. If you wish to share more tips, you can leave a comment down below.

Are Skinwalkers Real?

Are Skinwalkers Real?

The world abounds with tales of supernatural or otherwise cryptic creatures, and North America is no exception.

Along with the ever-elusive Sasquatch or “Bigfoot” run less well-known but even more spine-chilling stories about the Navajo skinwalker.

The skinwalker is believed to be a holy man or sage who is so connected with nature that he or she can assume the form of any animal.

But this amazing ability is not gained without a price: the holy man or witch must perform an evil act, such as murder, before they can unlock this power.

Additionally, they must kill the animal they wish to take the form of, making their connection with nature truly perverse. Are skinwalkers real, or is it just a legend with no credibility?


Navajo

Many people have claimed to have had encounters with skinwalkers. Many Navajo people, especially older ones, believe without a shadow of a doubt that skinwalkers do indeed exist.

They believe so strongly that many of them are reluctant to talk to outsiders about the skinwalkers, fearing that they may attract these terrifying and malicious creatures into their lives.

In addition, it is believed that non-skinwalkers are not allowed to witness the ritual that leads to the creation of skinwalkers, making information even more scarce – the skinwalkers truly are shrouded in mystery.

Example of a Skinwalker

Because older Navajo people are afraid to talk about the skinwalkers, most of our information comes from younger Navajo people who don’t necessarily believe in these tales.

One very interesting point is that many of the stories of encounters with skinwalkers come from people who are not Navajo, even people who have never heard of the skinwalkers and, upon looking for information about what they’ve experienced, come to the conclusion that they have witnessed one of these creatures.

These encounters usually occur on or in very close proximity to Navajo reservations – this fits the skinwalker story, since only Navajo people can become skinwalkers.


Encounters

One woman claims she was driving through Navajo territory at night when suddenly a man appeared, running next to her car. This would be odd even if it weren’t for the fact that the car was driving at sixty miles per hour!

To put that in perspective, the highest speed at which a human has been recorded running is 28 miles per hour.

The man tapped on her window as she was driving, gave a sinister-looking smile, and then ran away at unbelievably high speeds, disappearing into the night.

After researching, she came to the conclusion that she had encountered a skinwalker.

In Sedona, Arizona, not too far from this woman’s encounter, a man claims to have experienced the same thing: a human-like creature running past his vehicle even though he was driving at sixty-five miles per hour!

Arizona is full of stories of encounters with skinwalkers. If they’re real, this is probably no coincidence, since Arizona is the area in which many Navajo people live – evil medicine men or witches among them would have to be the source.

Winslow and Window Rock is especially famous for these encounters; you’d have to be very brave and perhaps stupid to go there looking for a skinwalker (I would not recommend it).

looking for a skinwalker

A second interesting story comes from when a girl was visiting her grandmother in Nevada. The elderly woman was 100 % Navajo, and the little girl remembers her shouting at her brother to “get away from it!”

She then saw a very large, unnatural looking dog which was staring at her grandmother. This dog apparently had yellow eyes.

The grandmother lamented that “it had found her.”

The otherworldly-looking dog eventually left (the girl can’t remember if it was at a high speed or not, as this is what skinwalkers are known for), and shortly thereafter the grandmother moved away from her house, believing fully that she had encountered a skinwalker who was trying to do her harm.

Another encounter occurred when a man living on a farm near Navajo land heard what he thought to be wild dogs outside.

He grabbed his shotgun, hoping to scare them off from the farm, but as soon as he pumped it the dogs looked directly at him, stood up on their hind legs, and ran away at incredible speeds.

Although his family believed in skinwalkers, this man did not; he does now.

Something similar happened in New Mexico, when a woman saw a strange presence outside of her house one night.

At first she thought it was a man, until she got close enough to see that, whatever it was, this bipedal, muscular creature had the head and body of a wolf.

She screamed (as most of us in this situation probably would!) before, again, the entity ran away at an unbelievably high speed.

A man with the body and head of a wolf sounds familiar to those of us interested in folklore: could it be that the so-called “werewolf” is actually a Navajo skinwalker?

The so-called "werewolf" is actually a Navajo skinwalker

One night, a student was taking the bus home from a basketball game. The bus would have to drive through Navajo territory. This is when another eyewitness encounter transpired.

Suddenly, the bus driver sped up to about 85 miles per hour, and the student was surprised by this as the driver was usually very careful.

But then he saw it: a creature running straight towards the bus. The entity, which looked like a wolf-like human and had glowing yellow eyes, made eye contact with the student and smiled, showing off its sharp, canine-like teeth.

All of the other students were asleep, but this student and the bus driver shared a glance, realizing that they had just experienced something truly bizarre.


The Subject of Skinwalkers

Are skinwalkers real? The question is difficult to answer. It’s certainly interesting that so many of these stories share features in common, and that many of the witnesses were non-Navajo people (meaning they didn’t necessarily believe the stories) or had never even heard of the legend of the skinwalkers.

It seems that, usually, the skinwalkers are wolf or dog-like, sometimes with eerie yellow glowing eyes, and capable of running at supernatural speeds.

I wonder if Bigfoot could be a skinwalker who has taken on the form a bear – just imagine a half-human, half-bear creature walking around on two legs and you have something that looks like a Bigfoot.

It seems unlikely, though, since Bigfoot encounters are described all over the country and not just in the southwestern United States…

The Brooklyn Ghost – The Wailing

The Brooklyn Ghost - The Wailing

On Brooklyn’s east side one night in 1894, five young women were making their way home through the curling fog. They decided to take a short cut near Knickerbocker Avenue and cut through a deserted lot.

They were about halfway across the lot when they noticed a strange white floating light directly ahead of them that seemed to be made up of the surrounding fog.

Without warning a piercing wail cut through the night, sending a bolt of fear down each of their spines.

The five women were rooted to the spot in fear as the white light drew closer and closer…until they could make out the ghostly image of a sunken-faced woman, covered in a white clothing, wading through the dark night’s fog towards them!

The group of young women had seen enough – they bolted in the opposite direction and managed to make it home safely.


Confrontation

The women spent the next hour explaining to their older brothers what they had just seen. The group of brothers decided to head to the abandoned lot and confront this female entity.

They arrived at the lot and decided to stand back-to-back in a circle, revolvers drawn and ready for action.

Confrontation

Suddenly they saw the female apparition rise slowly from the ground with it’s arms outstretched towards them. Their bravado was soon lost – they bolted exactly like their younger sisters had!

When they arrived home they spent the remainder of the night telling neighbors what they had witnessed and advising them to keep their windows and doors locked.


The Following Night…

The following night, as the story unfolded across Brooklyn, a large posse of concerned residents got together opposite the lot where the ghostly incident had taken place.

They stayed there until the early hours of the morning but dispersed just before dawn – had this group of brothers fooled them into thinking there was an entity in Brooklyn?

A local man named Peter Woelfel decided to take matters into his own hands the following night and set out to rubbish the claims put forward by the brothers.

At 1 A.M. Peter was spotted stumbling back into his home…as white as a ghost. He didn’t say a word but the locals could see he was clearly traumatized by something.


Peter’s Story

The next morning Peter felt up to being able to recount what had happened to him the night before. He approached a local gathering and told them his story…

He was apparently crossing the same abandoned lot when the ghostly female entity shot straight out of the ground. He was frozen with fear and claimed “She performed the serpentine dance while I remained rooted to the ground.”

Peter's Story

At the end of this dance she gave out a loud wail and suddenly he was able to move his legs again.

He ran home as fast as he could, nearly collapsing at his front door.


Police Intervention

More and more people started to take to the streets in search of this ghost Peter had encountered the night before. They were all armed – so the police decided to get involved as quickly as possible.

Within 24 hours a reporter from the New York Times turned up but he was told by a policeman named Holliday that the local whiskey was to blame.

Apparently the whiskey was so poor in the area it often caused the locals to see things that weren’t really there – in some cases robbing their own homes in a state of confusion!

The ghostly woman failed to appear that night and the large crowd had finally began to fizzle down after a few days of panic.

The reporter returned to his head office and wrote a short article on the incident – the wailing entity was never seen or heard again.

Images of Real Ghosts Caught on Camera

Throughout the construction of this site I have come across thousands of images of real ghosts caught on camera (as you can imagine!).

Now, in this day and age of Photoshop we all know that a large majority of these more modern examples are complete sh#t (sorry about the profanity but ‘it is what it is’ at the end of the day!).

Anyway, I’ve tried to showcase as many of the more famous or ‘mainstream’ examples – not all of you will agree with me but you’re free to express your opinions in the comment section below.

Don’t forget to bookmark this page as we will constantly be updating it with new examples we stumble across. We are looking to hit a 10,000 word count eventually…which will make it the largest page on this subject on the internet!


Real Ghost Images Caught on Camera

1) Praying Alone

I decided to include this photograph first as it was taken in the same year I was born – I also find it incredibly peaceful and moving for some reason…

Ghost With Praying Woman

Unfortunately I can only find a small amount of information on the picture itself, so if you have anything to add to it please contact us so we can include it in the article…

The picture was taken by a couple who visited the Worstead Church in Norfolk in 1975. The husband took a photograph of his wife praying silently in one of the old pews.

When they developed the photograph they realized that she was never really praying alone…


2) The Wedding Photographer

This picture was apparently taken by a wedding photographer who was testing out his equipment on farmland where an upcoming wedding event was taking place…

The Wedding Photographer

When he developed the shot he discovered the image of a young child staring right at him. He returned to the farm a few days later to carry out his job and asked the owner of the farm about what he had snapped in the photograph.

The farm owner was not at all surprised with the image and told the photographer that he often encountered the spirit of a young boy in a nightgown walking around his property!


3) The Shining

Those of you that are Stephen King fans will already be VERY familiar with the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. It’s the hotel that inspired the writer to pen The Shining.

The Shining

This photo was actually snapped in April of 2016 by a guest at the hotel – it’s taken inside the hotel’s grand lobby and stairwell.

Henry Yau took the photo and he claimed that nobody was around the stairwell at the time, he just wanted a picture of this famous lobby.

Paranormal researchers have been all over this picture and a larger majority of them think that there are two ghosts in the frame – a woman dressed in period black clothing and a small child to her left…


4) The Hanging Man

In the mid 1950’s the Cooper family were excited to move into their new property in Texas – they decided to preserve this monumental family moment with a photograph…

The Hanging Man

The joyous family portrait seemed to show up a lot more than one would expect…


5) Freddy Jackson

The image below was taken of Sir Victor Goddard’s squadron in the second World War. The photograph was snapped on the same day as the funeral of an air mechanic named Freddy Jackson.

Freddy Jackson

The zoomed-in section of the photograph shows Freddy peering over his good friend’s shoulder as his own funeral was taking place.

Maybe he just needed to let his squadron know that he was okay and he would always be with them in spirit?


6) The Amityville Boy

These days, the Amityville haunting tends to divide opinion due to all the hoax claims that have surfaced over the years…

The Amityville Boy

After Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered his family in the house on Ocean Ave. in 1974, Kathy and George Lutz snapped it up at a bargain basement price.

It wasn’t long before they reported green slime oozing from key holes and supernatural entities openly gazing at them from the house windows.

The paranormal activity became too much for the family who eventually fled the property…but they decided to let a handful of investigators into the abandoned house to see what they could find.

The South Shields Poltergeist

The South Shields Poltergeist

Back in December of 2005, in South Shields, England, a happy couple and their son were preparing for the Christmas holidays when some very strange disturbances began to happen in their home.

The couple decided not to include their family names in their report to protect their son (naturally), so for the sake of this article we will call them mum, dad and the son.

Lets take a closer look at the South Shields poltergeist…

Paranormal Activity

The paranormal incidents started off very slowly – simple tapping within the walls and doors opening and closing by themselves.

Suddenly the activity began to snowball – tables and chairs would stack themselves into towers in different rooms and huge and heavy chests of draws would scrape across their living room floor.

Paranormal Activity

At the time, the family reported that they never actually saw any of the furniture move by itself – but they could hear it happening.

By the time they got to the room involved the furniture had already made it’s new destination.

Something Supernatural

At this point both mum and dad realized that something supernatural was taking place in their house – even though they had not yet managed to spot any paranormal presence.

Next came the rather creepy toy incidents – it seems as though the son’s toy box got targeted by some sort of paranormal entity. Various toys would dance around the room and even turn themselves on.

Mum actually woke up one night when she felt a sharp pain against the side of her head. When she got up to investigate she found her son’s toy dog lying right next to her.

She was obviously scared – so she woke up her husband who sleepily laughed it off as nothing more than a weird dream she had experienced.

Within seconds another of her son’s toys flew across the room smacking her directly on the same side of her head. Both mum and dad were awake – and this was the first time they had actually seen the poltergeist activity in action.

Terror

But the entity had not finished with them on this night – it began throwing toy after toy at the couple who sat petrified in their bed.

They pulled the sheets up above their heads to act as a sort of shield against the flying objects – but something invisible inside the room was pulling the sheets right back down!

Entity in the toys

Suddenly dad screamed in complete agony and the barrage of flying objects stopped…

Mum turned to dad to find out what had made him scream in that manner and discovered 13 animal-like scratch marks across his back.

The Toys

From this point onward the entity in the house seemed to target the son’s toys and use them to frighten the occupants.

Both mum and dad would frequently hear certain toys creating some sort of distant moan – it’s as if the poltergeist wanted the family to believe that the toys were alive in some way.

These freaky toy incidents were soon followed by horrible text messages on their phones informing them that they were ‘going to die today!’.

On closer inspection the couple realized that these messages were somehow being sent from their own home landline.

Mike Hollowell and Darren Ritson

The couple went down many paranormal investigative roots before ending up on the phone to Mike Hollowell and Darren Ritson – they agreed to look into their case.

At first, The paranormal investigators were more than a little skeptical but that didn’t last for long – they eventually witnessed all the activity the family members had described to them!

The longer Mike and Darren investigated the more intense the haunting got. Kitchen knives would be thrown at the two men and the toys would seem to direct angry voices right at them.

The Entity

Mike and Darren eventually managed to come face to face with the entity that was terrorizing this innocent family.

They claim that:

“The entity walked slowly from the bathroom, across the landing into the bedroom. As it passed the door to (the son’s) room, it paused and stared at me. Its face, devoid of all features such as eyes, nose or mouth, was cold and menacing. It felt like it was burrowing into my soul. It was large  –  maybe two meters in height  –  and midnight black. It was a three-dimensional silhouette that just radiated sheer evil”

They eventually concluded that this entity had a problem with the father of the family – he seemed to be the only one that was targeted by these strange scratching frenzies.

Without warning – the poltergeist activity stopped during the final stages of Mike and Darren’s investigation.

What Are Ghosts Made of?

What Are Ghosts Made of?

What are we looking at when we see a ghost? We often ask this question in regard to the spiritual nature of the manifestation before us.

What heavenly apparition or lost soul is making itself known to us?

The other side of this question is much more scientific, much more physical.

What material and physical matter are we looking at that is causing these shapes and movement?

Put more simply, what are ghosts made of?

There are many theories on the physical matter of ghosts, but there is some weight behind the idea of plasma…

There has been plenty of debate on the topic of ghosts and the scientific reasons for their activity. Then there are the tales of popular culture that get thrown into the mix.

There is a big difference between the green, slimy masses that can be physically handled by Ghostbusters and cartoon characters and the physical entities that we come across in real life.

The problem is that nobody is quite sure what they really are made of.

One of the words that commonly comes up is plasma. This is an important term because it is probably largely responsible for the lore of movies, yet is still the most probable suggestion.

It all comes down to what our interpretation of plasma is. When we think of plasma we think of blood plasma and ectoplasm; plasma is where ectoplasm came from.

ectoplasm

In the movies, this meant a thick substance produced by ghosts in order to interact with the real world. This was a neat trick for visual storytelling, but this is not the reality of ghost encounters.

The other definition of plasma is a fourth state of matter that is neither a solid, liquid or gas. It is essentially an ionized gas, unlike the gases we are familiar with, with highly energized electrons that have separated from their nuclei.

We see this phenomenon when looking at neon lights and it is believed that this form of matter is what creates the energized glowing entities that we see as ghosts.

Our ongoing lack of understanding could simply be down to the fact that this particular form of plasma is separate from that of neon gas.

There could be physical and chemical interactions taking place within these spectral projections that are yet to be fully understood.

Energy and electricity are the key here, which is what makes this subject so complex…

Plasma, of one kind or another, seems like the most logical solution here because of that idea of a highly energized being.

We know for certain that energy is a major factor in the appearance and characteristics of ghosts.

The glowing, energy-emitting entities that we see are proof that energy is at work in some form. The best way of detecting the presence of ghosts is through an EMF meter.

Their readings and electrical charges are so strong that they are easily detected and can disrupt electrical equipment. This works with this idea of plasma because of that highly-energized, ionized gas.

Plasma

Plasma has the ability to conduct electricity, generate electromagnetic fields and emit light.

Ghosts and other related manifestations are known to do the same. There is a glow to them.

It was once theorized that ghosts were simply light sources of photon element, but this did not explain the ability to pass through solid objects.

In order to do this, these ghosts had to be made of something smaller than an atom. There was also the theory of the “ghost particle” that is the neutrino – something small enough to meet this criteria.

The problem here was that neutrinos don’t carry an electrical charge.

So What Are Ghosts Made of?

The one thing that researchers can be sure about is that ghosts are made up of some form of strong energy source.

It now seems that theories about photon light were a long way off the mark.

At the time, they were the most logical explanation for light generation in an unknown entity, but it seems that we were not looking far enough.

The poorly-understood world of plasma surely holds the key to finally answering the question of what ghosts are really made of.

Further research into the properties of plasma and the potential for different forms could help us to sole this puzzle.
