Unknown Voice Beckons Rescuers to Trapped Baby

Paranormal, Unexplained

by Taylor Leonard Ghostly encounters are a bridge between life and death. In some cases it can be speculated these perceived events are a way for the dead to protect life, especially life precious to them. Such a theory is evidenced by the accounts of first responders to a horrific car crash outside of Salt […]

Ghosts and Aliens: Is There A Connection?

Aliens, Ghosts, Paranormal, Unexplained

By bestselling author and paranormal investigator Joni Mayhan When I began researching this topic, I must admit that I was firmly in the skeptic’s corner. I am open minded to many things paranormal, but this took my belief system to a level I couldn’t immediately facilitate. In my experience, there are Ghost Camps and there […]

8 EMINENT SCIENTISTS WHO BELIEVE(D) IN THE PARANORMAL

Paranormal, Science

There is a long history of scientific inquiry into the paranormal. Most scientists won’t openly profess to a belief in the paranormal or supernatural for fear of professional ridicule. But that’s not always the case. Philosopher and psychologist William James was one of the first psychical researchers who worked on a variety of paranormal and […]

Scientists Create ‘Ghosts’ in a Laboratory

E.S.P, Ghosts, Paranormal, Science

A 2005 Gallup poll found that 37 percent of Americans believe in haunted houses — and nearly half believe in ghosts. Believers in paranormal activity–especially those who believe they have been personally contacted by ghosts–frequently report a series of specific feelings that accompany the experience. The most common feeling on this list is the overwhelming […]

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 […]
