More precisely, mythology is also strongly affiliated with such paranormal activities which feature strange creatures, metaphysical and supernatural powers. The most well-known across the globe, are the ancient stories regarding the paranormal mythology of the cultures like Greek, Roman and Canaanite.

An ancient civilization, thousands of years ago created a circle of roughly rectangular stones in a green grassy field which is situated in Wiltshire, England. Since then, we have heard several myths about that place. The very first myth about the Stonehenge is, it was a place of burial for the religious elite. The reason is, a recent documentary on BBC 4 showed that the bones which were exhumed and then reburied belong to quite well-endowed people back then. Another mythology associate to Stonehenge is, it was a place visited by many who were suffering from illnesses and diseases which were incurable at that time. Some stand by the myth that says these stones were erected to promote an aural echo. Very few are the upholder of the myths that the Stonehenge was more like a celestial observatory or it was just meaningless and they erected these stones just as a part of a team-building exercise.




2. The Bermuda Triangle:

First unveiled in 1950’s, this triangle of water over the Atlantic Ocean is quite a place of attraction for almost all scientist even for seismologists. It is a part of the ocean through which many ships that entered vanished right from the radar, as well as many planes that tried to make their way to the other end, was lost and most surprisingly without a trail. There are several myths in Greek and even in Hindu Mythology which clearly states that this place is one hell of a place. Some say, this area of ocean is haunted by the strongest paranormal forces which prevents penetration to their den. Many also think that this is a place where the UFOs come and land, making it their sub-quarter on earth. Whatever myth you may follow, the real story behind all these casualties is still under many veils and has never yet been discovered.

3. Haunted Houses:

If you are going to buy or move to a new house, there are something you should consider prior to making the big decision. Some of the misconceptions that people have attributed to a haunted house are as follows.

  • A slight tap on the back and why you move around, nobody is there, is considered paranormal, which is a myth.
  • Sometimes, smelling the perfume of one of your loved ones.
  • Your furniture rearranges itself, definitely a haunted house.


In a nutshell, today’s world is an advanced world and nowadays kids don’t believe in the ancient stories, nor do they seem to have any interest. However, if you really are experiencing any paranormal activity, you know how to reach such forums and groups which have been providing services for years.

It’s reported that many times during these episodes the individual will see shadows or feel the sensation of an entity sitting on their chest causing them to be pinned down to the bed.

Science has tried to explain away these bizarre  encounters, but has yet to offer any explanations to as the root cause of sleep paralysis or why some sleepers see things during these scary experiences.
