Re: Ghost Stories R Us

Okay, weirdness happened tonight. I was emptying the dishwasher and putting the glasses away. Now, I'm sort of anal with the glasses...I like them lined up and touching. I had put some glasses on the back of the shelf and turned to get some more out of the dishwasher. I heard a glass slide, and one of them was a couple of inches away from the one I had just put it against and more toward the front of the shelf. There is no way that it could have slid by itself...the shelf is completely flat. I very distinctly HEARD the glass slide and it wasn't where I had put it. Just....odd.

Heath Ledger


Heath Ledger was one of the most promising actors of his generation, having delivered impressive performances in such films as Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight, in which his portrayal of The Joker drew wide acclaim. He died in January, 2008 of what was ruled an accidental overdose of sleeping pills.

Ghost: Actress Michelle Williams, his ex-fiancé, says she has seen Ledger's spirit on two occasions. The first time, she was awakened at night by eerie noises, then realized her bedroom furniture was being moved around. She saw a shadowy figure, which she admits scared her "half to death." In the second instance, she says the apparition was much more vivid and spoke, telling her he was sorry for not being able to help raise their daughter.

Whitney's distraught mum haunted by her ghost





In a letter handed to her friends and family, Whitney Houston's distraught mother has said that she is being haunted by the ghost of her daughter.
Grieving Cissy Houston says her doorbell has been ringing mysteriously since the day Whitney died, but 78-year-old insists that she is not scared and is taking comfort fr
Meanwhile close friends of the family said Cissy is in danger of becoming "obsessed" with feelings that the songbird is still with her.
They warned it is a sign the frail grandmother-of-six is suffering from "uncontrollable grief and shock" that could spiral into a mental breakdown, the Daily Star reported.
Cissy could not bring herself to speak at her daughter's funeral held eight days ago.
Instead, she handed mourners a letter, which told how she believes the singer's spirit called at her door the day her body was found.
Cissy also revealed in the heart-rending message how God tried to warn her that her daughter was going to die.
The letter reads as "On Saturday, before I found out about your transition, my doorbell rang."
"I called the concierge to tell him someone was ringing my doorbell. He checked the cameras and told me that no one was there.
"You promised me you were coming to spend time with me after the Grammys. I believe the spirits allowed you to come after all," Cissy wrote.
Houston, 48, was found dead in her bath at the Beverly Hilton hotel in LA on the eve of the Grammys after a suspected drugs and booze binge.
Cissy added in her note that she felt spirits were trying to tell her how the singer was suffering in the months before her death.
"I never told you that when you were born the Holy Spirit told me that you would not be with me long. For two months now I have been depressed, crying, lonesome and sad not knowing why," she added.
A pal of Cissy said, "She feels Whitney is with her since this doorbell-ringing episode. She constantly talks to her as if she is still a real presence with real power."

One year on, ‘ghosts’ stalk Japan’s tsunami city

A year after whole neighbourhoods full of people were killed by the Japanese tsunami, rumours of ghosts swirl in Ishinomaki as the city struggles to come to terms with the awful tragedy.
One reconstruction project appears stalled because of fears the undead spirits of those who perished last March will bring bad luck.
“I heard people working to repair the store became sick because of ghosts,” Satoshi Abe, 64, said, gesturing to a half-repaired supermarket.
“People died everywhere, here and there. The city is full of such stories,” he said.
In some parts of this once vibrant fishing port, signs of life are returning — houses are being rebuilt, businesses are re-opening and children are back at school.
But with around a fifth of the 19,000 who died across the northeast having lost their lives in this small city alone, few think it can ever be normal again.
Shinichi Sasaki said the memory of March 11, 2011 never leaves and it is this persistent memory that creates the “ghosts”.
“That day keeps coming back to your mind,” he said.
“If you know someone who was killed, and the death was so sudden, you may feel that person is still there. I don’t believe in ghosts but I can understand why the town is rife with rumours.”
One taxi driver, who did not want to give his name, told AFP of his unwillingness to stop in parts of the city that were all but wiped out by the enormous waves of last March, because he worries that his customer will be a spirit.
A woman who lives in the city said she had heard stories of queues of people who can be seen rushing towards the hills as they try again and again to escape the waves, an endless replay of their last, fruitless minutes.
Counselors and academics say a widespread belief in ghosts is fairly normal in the aftermath of a large tragedy and forms a part of the healing process in a society.
Cultural anthropologist Takeo Funabiki said it was only “natural” that stories of the supernatural abounded in the wake of such an event.
“Human beings find it very difficult to accept death, whether they are inclined by nature to superstition or are very scientifically minded,” he told AFP.
“A sudden or abnormal death, anything other than someone dying in bed of old age, is particularly difficult for people to comprehend.
“When there are things that many people find difficult to accept, they can find expression in the form of rumours or rituals for the dead, amongst other things.
“The point is that it takes the shape of something that you can share with other people in your society,” he said.
For some of those who lost loved ones, the traditions that usually accompany death in Japan have served their purpose.
Shinto priests have been called upon to console the souls of the dead and ease their passage into the next world before they purify the places their bodies were found.
At the Buddhist festival of Obon in mid summer, offerings were made at altars as those left behind readied to welcome back the spirits of lost loved ones, who they believed would return to this world to visit for a few days.
But other people have struggled to make sense of their loss.
Koji Ikeda, a therapist and lecturer at the Academy of Counselors Japan, said “survivors have various complex emotions — fear, anxiety, sorrow or desire for the return of deceased people”.
“It is possible that a whole lot of emotions that people cannot fully cope with lead to ‘projections’ of spirits” he said.
“Pent-up emotions need to be expressed in order for people to be able to adapt to the new reality and move forward with their grief.”
While few in the city will talk openly of actually having seen a ghost, many are prepared to accept spirits could stalk the deserted streets.
Yuko Sugimoto says she is not particularly superstitious and has not seen any ghosts. But still she has no doubt they could be there among the shadows.
“Many people who were leading normal lives died suddenly,” she said. “I’m sure they must find that difficult to accept.
“It would be strange if you didn’t hear anything about any of them.” –AFP

Adele Creeped Out By Haunted Mansion

http://paranormaldailynews.com/2012/03/04/adele-is-a-little-creeped-in-her-haunted-uk-mansion/
Boo!

British singer Adele will not sleep alone in her new UK mansion. According to numerous reports, the Grammy award winning singer is completely convinced that her crib is haunted.

Adele reportedly hired her female driver to double as a bodyguard and move into the 10-bedroom home to live with Adele, so she has someone with her at all times.
Adele told British newspapers, “I’m not rattling around here on my own. It gives me the creeps.”
Adele, was creeped out big time after “hearing things that made her jump” in the middle of her $11 million 25 acre home home in southern England.
“Adele was so excited to be renting such a lavish property but it has not turned out as happily as it should have,” the friend added. “She is convinced it is haunted. She knows about its religious history — and it’s a big place to be in on your own in the dead of night.”

Re: Ghost Stories R Us

Cool stories.

I got one for you...

A friend of mine bought a 15 acre parcel of land here in Colorado last year with the intention of building a house on it. Most of the acreage was covered with thick stands of aspen and willow and the parcel included a small hill with nice views of the nearby peaks. So of course, the crest of the little hill was where he wanted to build.

Long story short, when clearing the aspen and brush from the crest of the hill he discovered a small burial plot with 5 or 6 graves. Only one was marked with more than rock cairns - a small hand-carved headstone for a child of 6 months from 1852. This "unknown" cemetery was just across his property line and on public land so he could still build on the hill ... but he would have them in his backyard.

Of course, i immediately began teasing him hard about how his brand new house would be a haunted poltergeist house if he built there. Now whenever i bring it up, he gets angry too.

What do you all think? Would you want to build on a spot where a miner and his entire family probably died of smallpox? (I'm just guessing about the circumstances here - but the area is full of old mining claims.)

I would be too creeped out.

Re: Ghost Stories R Us

The house my parents currently live in, you can see the church's graveyard from our backyard... it was very unsettling for a long time for me, lol. It took me a while to not feel weird about it.

I think I'd be creeped out too.

If it was the only place and I had to dig there I'd make sure the reamins were moved properly and then maybe a cleanzing of the property...but even after all of that...I'd still be waiting for things to go bump in the night.
