When you grow up, life is supposed to start making sense. But, as these Ask Reddit users learned, some things will always remain a mystery.

1. I saw disembodied body parts

“When I was younger I used to see disembodied parts all the time, like a set of legs in the hallway and a floating head by the road.

When I got older I joined a ghost hunting team as their clairvoyant for a while. I heard and saw tons of weird stuff doing that. I also learned how terrible ouija boards are doing that job.” — Goodbyepuppy92

2. We heard phantom footsteps in the basement

“When I was about twelve, I stayed over at my friend’s house and slept in his finished basement. In the middle of the night I heard someone walking around on the stone floor of the basement, but I could see there was no one there. After a minute or so the footsteps stopped.

When I told him about it the next day, he informed me that the previous owners had died in the basement as the result of a murder-suicide.” — alejo699

3. I had an out of body experience on Christmas Eve

“I had what may have been an out of body experience when I was about 15.

I was sick with a very high fever one Christmas Eve. I was in bed looking at my alarm clock when I remember being pulled away from my body. It is a sensation that to this day I have difficulty describing – it was as though I was still with my body but somehow about 5-10 feet away, almost behind my bedroom wall, at the same time. it was very unsettling but to be honest I would love to feel it again.

I then remember going downstairs where some family members had recently arrived. When my mother came in to check on me, she confirmed I hadn’t left my bedroom and asked that when I was feeling better I come out and say hello. The thing is, I already knew who was in the home and what they were wearing and doing.

So, I didn’t see my body or a white light or anything, but almost certainly had an OBE.” — tapehead4
