Creepy Police Report of a Possible Paranormal Sighting

Ghosts, Paranormal, Unexplained

We recently hunted down a very creepy story that has the added benefit of being an official police report, which we love. In fact, we could make it a whole section on our site, as there are hundreds of eerie, anomalous reports from police officers about paranormal encounters they’ve had while responding to their calls.

Memories Are Passed On Through DNA: How Is this Not ‘Paranormal’?

E.S.P, Paranormal, Science

Scientists recently announced the discovery that memories seem to be passed down through the generations through DNA. “The experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.” At first mention, one may think to oneself: okay, this makes sense, big deal. But actually […]

A Special Study on Magic

Paranormal, Science

Guest post by MICHAEL EDMISTON Magic is not dead. It never died, it merely slumbers, just beneath the surface of our modern, materialist, techno-industrial globalized culture. Magic has been with us since the beginning. It is practiced in some form by every culture in the world, and has been throughout history. Today, though we in […]

Young Ghost Hunter Spends a Night at the Waverly Hills Sanitorium

Ghosts, Paranormal

The Ghost Diaries recently received an email requesting we put eyeballs on a ‘ghost’ photo. The email seemed to be from a young ghost hunter, or perhaps even a cabal of young ghost hunters at the Floyd Central High School in Southern Indiana. We were referred to an article published in The Bagpiper Online, the […]

Insidious 2 is a Bank Heist

Horror Movies

We were huge fans of the first Insidious film but, unfortunately, last night we discovered that for the sequel the filmmakers decided to take some kind of dissociative psychedelic drug while writing the script. The opening scene is unspeakably boring. Characters discuss the paranormal as though they’re in an episode of Are You Afraid Of […]

How to Analyze a Ghost Recording (EVP)

Entertainment, Paranormal

Guest post by the Banshee If you are very careful to know your equipment and conduct your sessions, the ultimate step of a paranormal investigation is analysis. Many ‘hunters’ listen back to recordings on site; while this can be useful in directing a session, be sure to go back and analyze later anyway. While I […]

How to Record Real Ghost Audio (EVP)

Paranormal

Guest post by the Banshee So how can you be sure what you are hearing is actually paranormal? First, and I cannot emphasize this enough, TAG YOUR AUDIO in all your EVP sessions. If your stomach growls, say that. If you hear someone next to you move, say so. Of course if you yawn, or […]

2 Creepy Cemeteries You Wouldn’t Want to Be Caught Dead In

Paranormal, Unexplained

We love exploring creepy places. There are few adrenaline rushes better than walking through a graveyard at night. But there are some burial spots on planet Earth that have such unnerving reputations there’s no way in hell we’d consider spending a night there. The following are two such places… The La Noria Cemetery in Chile […]

New Bizarre Twists in the Macabre Case of Elisa Lam

Unexplained

A few months ago, we reported on the incredibly creepy and gruesome case of Elisa Lam, a Canadian tourist who was found in a water tank at the top of the infamous Cecil Hotel, a hotel well known to have housed two serial killers and a myriad of strange deaths and suicides. The facts of […]

Confessions of a Paranormal Researcher Pt. 1

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

– Guest Post by the Banshee Anyone who tells you that he or she is a “paranormal expert” should probably not be trusted. This might be a strange way to start a series of posts on The Ghost Diaries about my own paranormal work and research. Call me way too traditional, but I do not […]

Reincarnated Children and Past Life Memories

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

The concept of reincarnation has grown from its roots in ancient mysticism to a vibrant cultural meme, recycled and reinvented from generation to generation. Reincarnation, at the very least, suggests a collective human memory bank and powerful cosmic synchronicity. Contemporary views on reincarnation are beginning to transcend stale religious platitudes, which is refreshing for those […]

Fringe conspiracists believe there could be extraterrestrials or even demons living among us in disguise. Some claim these shifts have even been caught on video. The following post was submitted to us by […]

Taking Back ‘Paranormal’

E.S.P

The Ghost Diaries was created under a fairly simple driving mantra: 96% of the universe is unknown, and that’s pretty cool. As citizens of the free world, most of us have grown up in a consumer vacuum, brainwashed from birth to think monsters aren’t real and the world is largely understood. The news from the […]

6 Movies You Didn’t Know Were Paranormal

Entertainment

We all know our favorite paranormal films–movies with ghosts, demons, supernatural phenomena, psychic powers, etc. But what is less talked about are popular movies with paranormal elements that slip under the radar, movies that are not considered fantastical in any obvious way but which feature truly paranormal or supernatural plot points. Here are 6 such […]

Psychic Predicted the Death of John Lennon

E.S.P

Since the dawn of civilization, humans have attempted to predict the future. Can we predict the future or do we have the power to create our own?  Are we creating it right now?  The future appears to be a precarious place that is constantly changing. Yet, we have all experienced deja vu or seen a future event […]
