Woman Experiences Terrifying Outer Body Experience (Corpus Christi, TX)

After reading this story, it seems to be related to the phenomena known as “Astral Projection.”  

According to wikipedia, “Astral projection (or astral travel) is a term used in esotericism to describe a willful out of body experience (OBE), a supposed form of telepathy, that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an “astral body” that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside of it throughout the universe.”

This next story is from Corpus Christi, TX.  Check it out.

“All these happened in the same house. 

OK, I was in my teens, I remember this was during my high school days.  I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a little boy standing over me.  I asked, “who are you?” He answered, “Jack!” (Yea, I know, I named my son Jack also.)

Then he like jumped INTO me.  I felt my body walk to my parents room and stand there in front of their bed.  My mom woke up scared asking who I was.  Like she didn’t see me, she saw someone else.  All that could come out of my mouth was the name Jack although I kept trying to say, “get out.”

Next thing I remember, I plopped down on my bed, opened my eyes and said out loud “Jack!”  My body was halfway off the bed when I woke up.  I then went to wake my mom to ask if I was just there, she said no.  I told her what happened, she tried telling me it was just a dream.  She took me back to my room, I looked at the reflection on my TV and saw a little boy standing in the hallway leaning against the wall.  I kept telling my mom he was there.  She didn’t see him. Only I could.

Another event was my dad waking up to a noise thinking it was either my sister or I playing.  He said he saw a little boy throwing a ball against the wall.

This was around Christmas time.  I remember all the decorations being up in the house.  My sister and I were home alone.  We were in the living room watching TV.  Then it went snowy.  We tried every button on the remote but nothing worked, even buttons on the TV.

Then the TV volume went up and down and all the way up and turned off on its own.  We were freaking out.  We went to my room, then the train we had in our little Christmas village turned on and starting moving.  We were too scared to go see why.  It went around a few times before turning off.

Then I looked in the hallway and saw a tall transparent man with a long coat and hat and suitcase.  He disappeared before I shut the door.  We called my grandpa that lived an hour away, he came for us right away.  We didn’t leave my room till he got there.

A lot of bad things happened to our family while at that house, but those are the paranormal parts I remember.”-Vanessa Irino

We like to think of True Horror Stories of Texas as a place where everyone has an opportunity to tell their stories. The story you’re about to hear is a perfect example of this. They took the time to really express what they actually experienced growing up. This took place in Edinburg, Texas, it’s a look into a child’s home that was filled with paranormal activity. If you have a story like this you can share it here.


I lived at 308 W. McIntyre, grew up there until I was 18. Since before I was born stuff would happen there. Door knobs would violently turn like someone was trying to open the door, loud footsteps upstairs when no one else was home, to sounds of moving furniture upstairs.

The Haunting of Roy’s Taxi (Austin, TX)

This story comes to us from  Austin, TX.

“I’ve only had a handful, of run-ins with ghosts. I’ve never seen an actual apparition. I’ve seen things move, but that is not the story, which I tell today. For a few years, what happened, would bug me for a long time.

I worked at Roy’s Taxi, from 1995-2006. I was a dispatcher, but also drove from time to time. Yes, you may play Prince’s Lady Cab Driver, in your head, when you think of me. =P

Whispering ghost girl and bouncing orbs in Deep South Texas

We have had a few stories occurring on 11th street in McAllen, TX.  In this instance, a woman named Irene, talks about a strange ball of light she witnessed in her apt with her boyfriend.  This story may correlate to a similar story which took place just a few streets away from 11th street.  You can read that story here https://truehorrorstoriesoftexas.com/strange-lights/phantom-stomping-shadow-people-orbs-south-texas/

Here is Irene’s experience…

“Hi, I have a similar experience.  I lived in an apt on 11th St. in McAllen, TX.  My boyfriend and I were in the living room talking and then all of a sudden a silver ball that looked like an orb bounced from the ceiling fan and flew straight to the front door and disappeared.Image result for bouncing orb

It looked so real, but it was weird because it came out from the ceiling fan and hit the front door.  We thought the ceiling fan was gonna catch on fire, but the orb just disappeared.  I also had weird ghost experiences in that apt.  A little girl’s voice would whisper in my ear when I was going to bed, saying “Good Night “ or would have nightmares of a hairy figure trying to choke me.”-Irene

The Midnight Game – Harlingen, TX

My cousin and I experienced this paranormal activity in Harlingen in late November 2014. It’s an event that we have shared with our family and have never been able to explain. It was an eerie experience that has luckily never occurred again, but it is also something that we can’t get our mind off of and can’t seem to understand.

One night the lights went out, we lit candles and sat in the living room for about 20 minutes before my cousin decided it would be a good idea to play hide and seek (something we always did whenever we were bored). I didn’t want to play because I was afraid of the dark. That’s when we opted for me using a candle. As soon as I grabbed a candle my cousin was gone. I was scared to say the least.
