28 Creeped Out People On The Paranormal Activity They’ve Experienced IRL

18. We saw a lady in white

The supposed lady in white.

A buddy and I were relaxing on a porch late on night close to the Michigan border at a friends house and staring into the woods I see something. I said hey Donny do you see that, he said yea it looks like some chick just standing there. Now this was about 100 feet away and it kind of freaked us out. So we kept staring and then all of a sudden it zipps off to the right as if it were floating. We looked at each other and freaked out so bad we ran inside the house and slammed the door. His sister looks at us crazy and we tell her what we just had seen. She told us we had just seen the lady in white ghost and it was common up there to see her. Still to this day just the thought of remembering that floating/zipping motion still irks me.

19. An invisible presence shook my bed

I’ve posted about this before. Actually, my mom and I were talking about this a week ago. She told me about this story that I’m posting about. I don’t remember it, though..

I’ve got what I call a “bed shaker.” Whatever it is has been following me around since I was about 8. My mom used to like to prank me when I was a kid and hide near my bed and shake it. One night, I was in bed and the bed was shaking so I yelled at my mom “Stop shaking my bed!” I heard her and my father reply “We’re in the living room!” and I quickly booted it downstairs.

It happened every few years here and there and stopped from the time I was 18 until about a year and a half ago. Now it’s happening every few weeks. I’ll wake up to my bed shaking like fuck, and of course I’m terrified. The one time I was grateful for the bedshaker was about a year ago. My bed started doing that funky dance, and I woke up. My daughter (who was under a year) started HOWLING. I ran into her room and the wee lamp shade on her nightlight had tipped and the bulb started burning through the shade. Thank FUCK I got in there on time.
