I'm extremely fascinated anything paranormal. Ghosts, ufos, cryptids, anything like that. What got me interested in the paranormal was the large amount of Ghost sightings in my family. I've seen ghosts, my sister has seen ghosts, my Mom and some other relatives used to live in a Haunted house and moved out only a few months before I was born! The house they lived in was on Oldbury Road, Moss Vale, NSW. It was a small cottage but up the hill from the house was a huge abandoned mansion, just to make it creepier! All different stuff happened there, the upstairs part of the house always felt cold, when mum was in the kitchen she would always hear a girl outside playing hopscotch and giggling, but when she checked the sounds would stop and no one would be outside, when she went back in the girl would giggle loudly and start playing again. There was also a violent male spirit in the house who lived upstairs. In the mansion up the road, apparently mum would always see someone standing or walking past the windows, even though the building had been abandoned for years. There was also a strange horse on the property, apparently it was grey and had brown eyes that looked slightly red. When when mum drove in, the horse would be in a paddock far from the gate, but as soon as she got out to open gate the horse would be right there ready to attack her, so he always had to carry a huge stick around with her. How did the horse get to the gate in less than a few seconds from a few paddocks away? Phantom horse maybe? Speaking of phantom animals, there was also I big bird aviary (not sure how to spell it sorry) at the back of the mansion that was empty. One day mum went up to the mansion and saw about 20 or so healthy, normal looking budgies in the aviary, but of course she wondered 'how the hell did they get in there? Apparently after that, they never appeared again. Mum said that the property gates were huge iron gates, like the kind of ones that you'd see in a horror movie. One night someone got injured (which was apparently caused by the male spirit) and they called the ambulance. Mum had to wait for the ambulance down at the gates, so just imagine being in the darkness alone with the huge iron gates swing back a forth, thats what she said it was like and she swears that there was someone watching her.. Eek!... A whole lot of other stuff happened in that house, they even managed to snap a picture of the ghost girl. They were taking a photo of the house and when they got the photos developed, the ghost girl showed up in one of the windows in the lower part of the house, she was looking directly at them. Mum swears that there was no one inside at the time. Mum eventually called some ghost hunter people to come in and cleanse the house. When cleansing the house, apparently the male spirit let out this blood curdling scream. Mum was also able to find out the history of the house. In the early 20th century, the mansion was home to a wealthy family. There was a gatekeeper who lived in the cottage (the one mum and the others lived in). The gatekeeper had a wife and two daughters. One day his wife left him and he spiraled into a huge rage and the become depressed so he killed his daughters and then killed himself, in the cottage. That explains why it was haunted, the gatekeeper's ghost was the violent one and the girl's ghosts lived in the lower part of the house most likely because they were scared of their father. Soon mum and everyone else moved out. Nowadays it's used for weddings or something. I wonder if the ghosts come back sometimes? This is the cottage. Obliviously it has been done up since mum moved out. Apparently its called Highfield cottage and it's in Sutton Forest, which is very close to Moss vale. Meh I just say it's in Moss Vale. It's not only mum who has had ghostly experiences, my sister and I have also had our own share of paranormal experiences. My sister used to talk to a ghost (I won't mention his name because I'd like to keep that private), he used to come and sit on her bed every night, but she didn't think he was a ghost at the time, until we found out he was. One night My step-cousin, my brother, my sister and I were playing truth or dare, I dared my sister to go out outside in the darkness for 30 seconds. I was standing at the door and made sure that she couldn't get in. Suddenly at around 10 seconds into the dare, she started banging on the door screaming 'let me in!". Honestly I though she was joking, she kept banging on the door until the dare was up. She came flying inside and flopped onto her bed and started shivering. I asked her what happened and she said that while she was out there, a strange blobby-human figure was slowly walking towards her, and since the moon was out, she saw it clearer. She said it was white and kinda looked like a man covered in vanilla ice cream. Lets just say, we never dare anyone to go outside in the dark when we play the game. My sister also says that when it's night time and she has to go to the toilet, when she walks through the kitchen (you have to go through the kitchen to get to the bathroom) she always sees tiny little people under the kitchen table and she swears that they are real. She still sees them to this day. Now my turn! The first real ghost I can remember seeing is one I saw about 5 years ago in my current house. One day I was home alone, sitting on the couch reading books. I was facing the bathroom, the door was open. Another spare room in connected of the bathroom, it's door was also open. Anyways I happened to look up from the book and then suddenly this huge black shadowy figure walked past the bathroom door and into the spare room. Now I know a lot of shadow ghost sightings are just when you look out of the corner of your eyes and think you see something, but it may not be real, but I swear I was actually looking at this thing, it wasn't out of the corner of my eye. It actually walked past! For some reason it reminded me of the Grim reaper. I ran outside and didn't go back in until mum came home. I've seen tonnes of other ghosts, but I'll tell you about them later, since I think this is getting a bit long. Now I want to ask you, have you seen anything paranormal or strange? I doesn't have to be ghosts it can be anything unusual, but I rather something along the lines of these: . Ghosts. (also includes doppelgangers, poltergeists, and other types of spirits) . Aliens/Ufos . Strange animals (Cryptids) . Possessed items (eg Dolls, toys etc) . Haunted houses. . Phantom animals. . Sleep Paralysis, dreams. Sleep related stories. . Gnomes, Fairies and other mythical creatures. . Random out-of place stuff (eg, a day that wasn't quite right) So a story about any one of the things listed above is fine. Please no Fake stories, I want real ones. This isn't about fake paranormal stories. Oh and here is the website for that cottage: http://www.highlandsnsw.com.au/highfield/ Notice how it doesn't say anything about what happened. Maybe that will scare people away?
