Types of Ghosts that Could Be Haunting You RIGHT NOW

– Have you ever felt like
you’re being watched? How do you explain those
random sounds that you hear late at night in your house
when you’re all alone? Many people attribute these
things to natural occurrences, but what if there’s something else? What if there is a supernatural
entity that’s watching you, following you, and potentially
wishing you harm right now? Well, you’re about to find out. Here are 10 types of ghosts that could be haunting you right now. (eerie music) Number 10 is the Messenger. Those creaks, knocks, and
whispers, items that seem to move on their own, and the odd
glimpse of something moving out of the corner of your eye
may not be a malevolent spirit but a ghost who wants
to communicate with you. The trouble is, that can often
make the Messenger apparition even more terrifying. Messengers are desperate for
their information to be heard, and will manifest itself in
any way it feels necessary to ensure that it gets your attention. Some paranormal experts
claim that it takes a ghost a long time to become accustomed
to his or her new powers, which is especially frustrating
for them when they have an important message for
someone who’s living. And as the spirit gets
more upset, it can act out, destroying your belongings or
even physically attacking you. All because it had something to say. Number nine is an Animal Ghost. A soft growl coming from the other side of your bedroom door, a
pair of small glowing eyes from the corner of the
room that seems feline. These are signs that
the paranormal creature that you’re being haunted by
might not be a dead human, but in fact, a dead animal. Animal ghosts can manifest
in a number of ways, similar to many types of humanoids. If you ever suddenly smell
a wet dog, though you don’t have one, or have something invisible seem to sniff at you, stay calm. Dead animals can be just
as curious as living ones, but if you disrupt their home
too much, or come off hostile, they can become defensive
and even more horrifying. Just imagine having the
jaws of a ghost dog lock around your ankle and dragging
you under your own bed. Number eight is a Brownie. Just because a ghost is
helpful, doesn’t mean it’s not terrifying when you
realize you’re living with one. Creatures of Scottish and
English folklore known as Brownies, are household
spirits that resemble hobgoblins. They make themselves known to
you by stealing small amounts of food from your kitchen
and helping do small tasks. If you’ve ever come
across a completed chore, but don’t remember doing
it, you may have a Brownie in your home. Additionally, the feeling
that you’re being watched, even in the middle of the day,
but with no apparent source, could be a sign, especially if you’ve just opened the fridge door. Whatever you do, don’t
offend these tiny spirits, as they can take revenge
in terrifying ways, hurling things around and haunting you in similar ways to poltergeists. Number seven is Residual Haunter. There’s an old saying that
claims history repeats itself, but for residual hauntings,
that saying is a reality. These spirits are trapped
in an endless time loop, continuously living
through the last moments of their tragic lives. The hauntings occur almost
exclusively in places where horrible, traumatic
events took place that wound up costing the ghost their life. Often, the apparitions
have no idea they’re dead, simply acting out the final
moments of their lives, as terrified living humans
watch or listen to them. If you ever find yourself
waking up at the same time each night and you hear
something like stairs creak or doors close, it may be
an unseen spirit beginning their routine, unaware of what
they’re about to experience. When you hear of a lady
in gray or woman in white, they are likely residual hauntings. Number six is Etheric Revenants. Do you ever feel suddenly
sluggish or have trouble keeping your eyes open at all times? It could be natural exhaustion
or it could be the work of a malicious spirit that’s
sapping your life from you. One of the most dangerous
ghosts you can be haunted by is also, luckily for the
human race, one of the rarest. Etheric Revenants are often
compared to vampires of legend, mostly due to the fact that
they feed off the energy of the living. Those who are haunted by these
creatures will go through waves of drowsiness and will
wake from full night’s sleep feeling like they haven’t slept a wink. The few people who have
seen them up close and lived to tell the tale, describe
them as cold, black shadows without humanoid shapes and
claimed looking directly at them was like looking into a black
hole, a place devoid of life. So if you ever feel tired
after a full night’s sleep, now you may know why. Number five are Shadow People. Have you ever spotted
something moving in the shadows of your peripheral vision,
only to see nothing when you turn to look directly at it? Do you feel eyes staring at
you from the dark corners of your home, or sense something
sneaking up behind you, only to find nothing there? If so, you have had a
shadow person haunting you. One of the most widely
encountered ghosts, shadow people are seemingly incredibly
patient apparitions, remaining in the darkness
most of the time, either motionless or slowly
drawing nearer to the person that they’re staring at. The most common image
people witness is a tall man with a big hat. Rarely do these creatures
communicate in any way, but many of those that have
faced them alone claim they know that the shadow people
have malicious intentions. Number four is Fetch. After someone close to you
dies, it’s not uncommon for you to feel their presence, even
watching over you as you try to fall asleep. The thing is, sometimes
that spirit staring at you isn’t your loved one at
all, but a mysterious entity called a Fetch. Fetches are essentially ghostly
doppelgangers that take on the appearance of the
recently, or soon to be dead. They’ve been described as a
spitting image of the human that the haunted knows in
real life, only much quieter and they give off an
eerie, ominous feeling. If you ever spot a living
person you know well standing in a dark corner of
your home, but you know they cannot physically be there,
then it might be a good idea to call them and warn them. If a Fetch appears as a
living person, then odds are, death is coming for whoever
they resemble very soon. Number three is a Dybbuk. The next time you look into
a mirror, make sure it’s actually you staring back
and not the spirit that’s slowly starting to possess your body. A Dybbuk is the malicious
ghost of a dead person, usually with some unfinished
business that they believe is so vital that they will
take over a living body and go about completing it. Some stories told about these
creatures speak of the Dybbuk following the victim around,
whispering curses or threats in order to weaken the target’s
willpower and make them easier to take over. If you determine someone you
know is possessed by a Dybbuk, the only way to save them
is to perform an exorcism, help them fulfill their horrible
objective, or find a way to convince them the
task is already complete. But be careful, the Dybbuk
could simply jump into you. Number two is the Bogeyman. Do you ever get the feeling
that something evil is hiding in your own bedroom? Have you ever been so
terrified to open your closet that you couldn’t put your clothes away? If so, you might have a
Bogeyman watching you. Though you may shrug the Bogeyman
off as just a scary story that adults tell children in
an attempt to make them behave, there are far too many
real-world claims of the shadowy figure emerging from closets
or under beds to ignore. Generally, Bogeymen appear
as masculine figures, but female and androgynous entities have also been encountered. Bogeymen prefer to steal
away misbehaving children, but older people have vanished
too, never to be seen again. Apparently, the Bogeyman
likes to watch its victims, scaring them for days
or weeks before suddenly bursting forth and attacking. (roar) And number one is a Poltergeist. The absolute last kind of
spirit you want to be haunted by is a Poltergeist. If you’ve ever suddenly
awoke due to loud bangs, moving objects, or physical
interactions with your body, you may be dealing with one
of these terrifying creatures. Poltergeist is German for
noisy ghost, but the sounds they make, while still
terrifying, are not what you should be most worried about. You may find cuts, bruises, and
even bite marks on your body that you don’t remember
receiving, but things only get more dangerous and crazy from there. These things don’t haunt
your home, they haunt you. No matter how fast you
run or where you go, it will follow you, hurling
things from silverware to couches around to make
sure that you stay scared. That is until it gets bored
and decides to end you. (eerie music)
