25 People Tell Stories About Their Eerie Encounters With The Supernatural

These supernatural stories from Ask Reddit will give you chills that will last for days.

17. A ghost attacked me in the middle of the night

“One of the stranger ones would be when I got punched in the face while I was trying to fall sleep.

So one night I was trying to fall asleep. It was around 10 or 11 and I was laying in bed on my left side with my eyes closed. I remember I was really relaxed and close to falling asleep when I had this strange sensation that something was coming towards my face. Even stranger, while my eyes were closed I saw what looked like a fist coming towards me. Then, suddenly it felt like a solid gust of wind (kind of hard to describe) hit me right in the face and my head actually snapped back as if I had been hit. I snapped my eyes open and looked around, nothing was there. It freaked me out, but I was tired so I just ignored it and forced myself to go to sleep in order to stop being scared.” — redmoon_3

18. My cup floated into the air and dropped back down

“One time when I was driving with my mom, my drink cup turned raised a few inches and turned completely upside down and then dropped. We both saw it happen and were pretty freaked out for awhile.” — iamthetoe

19. We experienced a poltergeist

“When I was a kid (probably between 2nd-5th grade) I MAY have had a poltergeist. I consider myself a bit of a skeptic so I’m not sure, but sometimes I experienced things.

I’m sure many of you won’t believe this story, but I promise it is 100% true. I was raised by my grandmother and she would always buy me these porcelain dolls in which to decorate my room. I liked them, but I wasn’t allowed to play with them, I was only allowed to look at them. Also, it should be noted that now that I am an adult, I consider myself a problem child at that time as I had such a sassy attitude and some anger issues. Well, I was upset about something dumb and I had an attitude so I stomped off to my bedroom. I had a couple of these dolls displayed on high shelves that I could not reach without help and one in particular was a beautiful doll dressed in a wedding gown. As soon as I walked into the room, it flew from the top shelf, across the room, and landed right on my bed. There is no way it could’ve simply “fallen” onto my bed as it was on the opposite side of the decently sized room. Had it fallen, it would’ve landed on the floor. Anyway, I thought the doll flew off the shelf to be played with so I was playing with it when my grandmother came in and asked how it got off the shelf and I told her it flew off the shelf onto my bed.

Also, in this same house, I woke up many times during the night to my bed shaking like there was an earthquake but earthquakes were not regular occurrences where I grew up. I also sleepwalked (sleptwalked?) frequently. I would go to sleep in my bed and wake up in the basement or sometimes on the couch. (Our basement was fully furnished. Not creepy btw. Our playroom and a family living room was in the basement).

Yeah basically, all that stuff stopped after my grandmother died in 2006, but my aunt, who bought the house after my grandmother passed, said that on the day of my grandmother’s death, she always smells her perfume.” — NotAGinger42069
