The Haunting of Us

Have you ever wondered…

That feeling of dread and darkness you feel every time you venture up the staircase or into a particular room?  Is something there?

The rustling you heard under your bed, is it your imagination or something more sinister?

A shadowy figure you see in front of the window across the room, is it really there or is it nothing more than a vivid nightmare?

Your pet dog (who follows you everywhere) won’t go down into the basement of your new home? There is nothing you can do to entice him to come down. Why?

Am I the only one who has experiences like this?

This site is dedicated to those of us who feel, hear and see things that cannot be easily explained. The Haunting of Us webpage has been created as a place where we can all tell our stories. It’s meant to be a safe place where we can share our experiences and read the stories of others. 

My name is Theresa Rutherford and I believe I am an empath or what others might call a sensitive. In the process of reviewing my past I have discovered that many of the female members (and some of the males) also shared this gift. We have seen many things which cannot be explained.  These experiences were at times comforting and at times quite disturbing. Writing them down has in fact been very cathartic for me; as I hope it will be for you as I invite you to submit your scary tales for posting on our site. Sharing my experiences with others has opened the doors to the understanding that everyone has a story and in this I am not alone.
