I recently asked readers of LLIFS to complete a survey about their experience with sighting an apparition. If you would like to learn more about the types of apparitions, read my article: Apparitions.
From this article, I collected dozens of submissions from you guys with your own experiences. Some of these were published in the articles:
The work remains ongoing and I am still collecting submissions, however, due to the high amount that has come through, I will be continuing to share some of the submissions. The ones published below have given consent to be published, either anonymously or with their name. These have been randomly selected.
(These are completely unedited and copied exactly as submitted to me)
My friend committed suicide he appeared to me in full body dressed in his usual clothes he had his fingers up to his lips like I was supposed to be keeping a secret. There is much more to this. We spoke of this often. I still love and miss him dearly
Grandfather who had deceased when I was 5 years old. Old lady in my garden when I was 4 years old. Turned out to be the old lady who used to live in the house which backed onto our garden. Deceased pet cat witnessed by my wife and me at the same time. Translucent woman walked in front of me a couple of years ago and dissolved. Wife's deceased mother (who I never knew) seen walking across our hallway.
I was woken up on the middle of the night and a couple from a different Era was standing beside my bed watching me. As soon as they saw I was awake they turned and slowly walked /floated away until they got so small they disappeared.
I was in a chair in a room in my house. There were some dim lights on in the room. I saw the apparition walk into an adjacent room. It stopped, turned to look at me, and then vanished. This was during a time when we had been having poltergeist activity in our house.
She just appeared behind me the first time in mirror. Next day I was on phone telling my sister about it and she went walking by me.
I was at my moms house in Phoenix, watching tv, when I looked up and saw a full solid man walking from one part of the hallway to the next and going into the other bedroom. I then went into that room because my mom and stepdad were in there and it was gone by mom told me she sees him all the time. He was wearing what looked like a pea coat and a blue type merchant marine cap.
A short time after my first dog died, I was walking toward our hallway and I saw her standing by the end of the wall. I was maybe only 10 years old when it happened.
I was getting out of our truck, I looked out the windshield and saw a dark (profile) silhouette. I stared at it for several seconds, unsure I was really seeing it, and then it disappeared.
Trying to locate an elder team member in a pioneer cemetery and at a distance, saw a person standing near them and he shrank and melted into the team member.
I worked in a stage theater that was well known for being haunted. I was the custodian, so I was in the building after hours by myself. I had locked the building down, making sure no one was left inside, and began cleaning. As I was cleaning the auditorium, I made my way to the back rows from the front of the stage. I looked up toward the lighting booth and saw the figure of a man staring down at me. I was no more than 40 or 50 feet away. I had been up there only minutes before and had locked the door behind me, so there's no way anyone else was up there. The stage curtains were closed, so there's no way it was a reflection. The figure continued to stare at me for around 10 to 15 seconds while I stood frozen. An overwhelming feeling of dread (on my part) and a sense of anger (directed toward me) came over me and I knew that whatever was looking at me did not want me there, so I dropped the broom I was holding and immediately ran to the lobby and out the front doors.
Other employees, including stage actors, told me of having similar experiences when I related it to them afterward.
investigating a bar; outside alone near music/band stage. Woman in white standing on stage; I went to ask if she worked there, she disappeared.
Was about to get up, to turn the TV on.. As I turned, I saw it! I blinked a few times, asmy heart rate shot up!
I could see, a torso simmering in a blue, gray silvery colour. It look liked, it was holding something to its chest area. It had long past the shoulder gray n white coloured hair.
The face was not formed, and remained shimmery (Blurry)
The arms, had the most definition.
Around a week previous.. We had, some keys thrown, & even levitating across the room! This was amazing to me, & this activity was witnessed by my, then Girlfriend & her 4 year old son!
At this time, I was sitting regularly, in a development circle, at a spiritual church...
I was told, that I might notice things move, around my house etc...
Then all this happened!
Fantastic! (My GF didn't think so)
