Unexplained Paranormal Experiences
Who doesn’t love a good ghost story? These stories are not your average urban legend, instead they are true documented encounters with the paranormal.
Disembodied doctor – British Medical Journal
In 1984, a woman was sitting at home reading when she suddenly heard a very clear voice inside her head. The voice told her, “Please don’t be afraid. I know it must be shocking for you to hear me speaking to you like this, but this is the easiest way I could think of. My friend and I used to work at the Children’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street, and we would like to help you.” After a series of medical tests, including psychological assessments, the patient was eventually diagnosed with a large benign meningioma (brain tumor). The voice continued to speak to her throughout the medical testing. After she had surgery to remove the tumor, the patient heard from the voices one last time after regaining consciousness when she heard them say, “We are pleased to have helped you. Goodbye.” She reported no post-surgical problems and never heard the voice again.

“Several years ago, when my daughter was just over 3 years old, my husband and I were watching a TV show about 9/11. It was on or around the anniversary of the event. My daughter, who was coloring nearby, looked up when the screen showed a plane hitting one of the World Trade Center buildings. She said to us, ‘I died there.’ Then she just went back to coloring like she hadn’t said a word. We had never talked to her about the concept of death, and had never discussed 9/11 with her. Since then she has not said anything else about it, but now if something comes on TV about 9/11, she says, ‘I don’t want to watch this.”
Schools out –Ohio University
Room 428 at Wilson Hall is permanently closed. Students at Ohio University, the ninth oldest public university in the U.S., are not allowed to so much as enter the dorm room due to the numerous reports of hauntings and dangerous ghostly activity in the room. Wilson Hall was reportedly built on an Indian burial ground (because that always ends well). Spiritualists claim that the building is located at the center of a pentagram formed by five such ancient cemeteries, lending this geographical position extra powers of either safety or evil. In the 1970s, a male student died under mysterious circumstances in room 428. Years later, a female student used what she perceived as the room’s “energy” to practice rituals such as astral projection, during which the human spirit is said to leave the body and travel about at will. Not long after moving in, this student died as well, reportedly from cutting her own wrists. Reports from the room became too frightening and the university feared another student death could result, so they decided to seal the door shut, forever. This is the only known case where a dormitory room has been sealed off in the U.S. to date.
