Apologies for running this advert a second time, but I'm still looking for lots of participants for this study! This in genuine research and is not intended as spam.(Just a note for people kind enough to have done this study before - it's only possible to do it once, but please pass the info on to friends! Thanks).

If you enjoy answering questionnaires, please consider taking part in a study of paranormal, religious, and spiritual experiences, being carried out online by researchers at the Experimental Psychology department of the University of Bristol, UK.

If you have had one or more paranormal/supernatural, religious, or spiritual experiences (no matter how small or unexciting!) in your life, and you are over 16, you are eligible to take part. You don't necessarily have to be spiritual or religious, just to have had an experience that isn't easily explained by current science!

The study involves filling in questionnaires at your leisure online, and takes less than 30 minutes in total. The study is *completely anonymous*. Not even your email address is required! If you take part, *please* complete a consent form and *all three* questionnaire forms (so four in total, see links below for more info) and answer all the questions.

First off... I just joined so obviously this is my first post.
I was reading some of the earlier entries before I decided to post anything.
Quite a lot of topics/stories caught my interest, since I often experience the same thing. One of the stories which made me decide to post is the one from gipsy. Asking about if ghosts/spirits have the tendency/habit to follow us around or attach to us. I would like to share my own experience with that sort of thing, or rather, my boyfriend's experience. 

Note: Shadow plays a major part in this experience. But since spirits sometimes manipulates (I believe they can) lots of things, I've decided to post this.

My boyfriend has been staying at my place for almost 4 months now. Before he moved here we would constantly talk to each other on the phone and sometimes he would share stories on how spirits seem to "like" him and follow him around.

I have my own business (Computer Rental Business) and he basically helps me out. Our building has two floors. The first floor holds different business establishments (aside from mine) while the second floor serves as our "living quarters".

One afternoon, at about 4 PM, my boyfriend took a shower and decided to go down (to the comp shop) to check on our other friend (who is also helping me out). I was still asleep. There were just the two of us at that time. On his way down he heard someone call him. Not by name, but by uttering "Pssstt..."

"Psstt.."

My boyfriend, thinking it was me, turned, and walked back to our room. He saw me still sound asleep. Bewildered, he shrugged it off and went down the stairs.

Now, you have to walk a bit (from the stairs) before reaching the back door of our shop, and most of the time it's dark since it's a closed area. So, it is possible for your shadow to get mixed with a lot of other shadows which can cause lots of crazy shapes. 

For some reason, my boyfriend glanced at his own shadow.
And there he saw...
Another shadow.
It could be his. Another shadow caused by a different angled light.
Yes, that could explain it.
But then... at that time, there was only one source of light. A Fluorescent on the ceiling.
And the second shadow wasn't just a "replica" of his...
What was that second shadow? It certainly wasn't his.
Because, as my boyfriend is walking in full height, the second shadow was crouched (in a hunchback sort of way), and was walking behind my boyfriend's shadow. As if stalking him. Its steps were much smaller and quicker compared to my boyfriend's slow stride. My boyfriend didn't dare stop, he just kept walking, his eyes glued on the second shadow, until he reached the shop.

As soon as I woke up and went down to check on them, he told me what happened.

I shivered, despite the weather, because, I realized, that before I went down someone called me as well.
Not by name... but by uttering "Pssttt..."

"Pssttt..."

The only difference is, I didn't look at my own shadow.

Now I wonder, if at that moment I did look... will I see the same shadow stalking mine?

I have always been into the whole paranormal scene, and I've had this sort of "sixth sense" since I was really little. Ever since my dad died, I've been expierencing a lot more crazy stuff. Most recently, I was in the bathroom washing my face, and I hear what sounded like footsteps directly above me. They were very loud and kind of intimidating, but I went upstairs to check it out. I saw nothing. But as I walked down the stairs, I listened to my own footsteps, followed by someone elses. We were definitely walking at different paces.

And also, my mom saw a figure appear in front of her, but she was sitting down as they were standing, so she only saw the bottom half. When she was describing it to me, I told he I saw the same thing earlier this year next to my bed. The gray-green tint that layed apoun the sort of foggy exterior was eerie enough, but I told her I saw them wearing kind of shorter shorts and she was describing it to me perfectly.

I don't know, just decided to post a couple of odd things that happened to me lately. Figured it'd be a nice icebreaker for this newbie ;D

In July, a co-worker's daughter (and friend of mine), a bunch of other people, and I are going to Waverly Hills Sanitorium in Kentucky. It's an abandoned hospital where people with TB were sent pretty much to die in the early 1900s. We may be able to upgrade to the guided tour/overnight stay (hopefully!). My friend, who is an avid ghost hunter, has all the really neat gear -- sensors and whatnot. I already have a good digital camera/camcorder and a few 1 GB cards.

So, is there anything else I should bring? I was thinking about looking into a really good voice recorder. I'm sure my friend has one, but I want my own.

Thanks,
~Kris

I think I saw a black cat in my parents' room. It had short hair, green eyes and an angular face. My heart literally stopped when I saw it. I blinked and it was gone.
I don't have any cats...the only pet I have is a Beta...and he's red.

Well, these all occured awhile back but I am just posting now because I'm bored.

So, my friend Michelle and I were in the back bedroom that
a lot of spooky things have happened and we heard a bicycle horn being honked
right outside the door. weird.

And I think I might've posted this story before but whatever.
So, in that very same hallway a couple months before what happened above.
Me and 2 friends were the only ones awake in the house and just hanging out
and we all got up to go get popsicles and as I walked past a door that was open
in that hallway I thought I saw a white figure standing there and I just ignored it.
But on the way back all the hairs on my neck stood up and I started walking
really slow and my friend Michelle was right behind me and as I started walking
past the door I looked it in and Michelle shoved me into the room we were sleeping
in at that exact moment and as I looked into the room I heard what sounded like a chair
being moved across a wooden floor but that room has carpet, and michelle said the reason
she shoved me was because she saw this big white thing coming towards us really fast.

And another instance that happened in a different part of the house that was
more recent was about a month ago and I was just sitting alone in michelles
room on this computer and her door just swung open.

But that's all for now.
Peace.

Hello. My name is Athena. I'm new to this group. I'm 17, a senior in high school and a firm believer in ghosts. I don't see a reason not to believe in them, i mean after all we all have souls don't we? an energy that keeps us going, and after we go the energy must continue. any way. I have many ghost encounter stories especially from when i was younger. I shall post those up later. until then i would suggest looking for a book called
"hell house and other true hauntings from around the world" by Alison Rattle and Allison Vale. This book is pretty awesome and it only cost me 10 Bucks at barnse and nobles.
