I would love to get people's opinions on what is up with the urban legend of the lady in white? I never believed in it. Just thought it was made up stories...until I experienced it and now I have no idea what to think. What really makes me curious about my experience is that I didn't talk to her/it. I'm a medium and can easily talk with spirits but this one freaked me out so much I just got out of there fast. Lol. So does anyone have any theories why people are seeing this apparition all over the world?

The lady I saw was crying walking around the parking lot of an old historic, famous restaurant. She was wearing a white dress possibly a wedding dress. I could feel she wanted to get my attention. I was a teenager at the time and wanted nothing to do with her. I was supposed to be meeting my boyfriend and his parents there but told them I got sick and had to leave. Lol

I haven't had any experiences with the "White Lady". But I have seen white shadows pass behind me but not too sure of their gender!

However, I am a believer in going with gut instincts.  So if yours were on avoidance; I feel you made the right choice.

I think there must be many ladies in white.  Why they choose to appear this way is not clear to me.  I was driving past a cemetery in PA two winters ago between Taneytown and Gettysburg.  It was snowing fairly hard and I was concentrating on staying on the road as there were no other cars that had left any tracks to follow.  This was at 3:00 in the afternoon.  As I came around a curve the cemetery was on my left and because of the snow I was driving fairly slow.  My concentration on the road was broken when I noticed a woman just inside the cemetery fence line next to a large headstone which was nearest to the road.  She was dressed in a white thin flowing nightgown which was whipping around her in the wind.  It was only about 20 degrees out.  She looked young, had long blond hair and was turned toward me waving.    It was so odd and out of place that it took me a second to wrap my head around what I was seeing because a young woman wouldn't be out in a snow storm dressed that way.  As I passed she just kept waving.  I slowed when I got to the end of the cemetery and looked in my mirror but she was gone.   My next business trip was in the spring and I drove out to find the cemetery with my Wife.  The headstone that the lady in white was standing next to was a grave of a 19 year old woman who had died in 1952.  One of these days soon, I am going to return to that cemetery and conduct an EVP session at that grave.  This is indeed a strange and interesting co-existence we live.

Great story PE. Agreed, there are many reports of a "Lady in White" just as there are accounts of a "Lady In Blue". We have our own "Lady In White" allegedly in Connecticut viewed by you guessed it, "The Warrens".

https://www.youtube....h?v=KKoMXrLsz3Y

It has a curfew and because of the notoriety, even to this day, the police actively watch it during their rounds. Most of the "Lady's In White", appear to be residual in nature .

Each one of them have there own story I suppose. I myself have never run across a glowing half/full body apparition. I still would require a collective experience otherwise I'd be forced to just write it off as a hallucination. Mind you, whether it's real or fictitious, this is one event I'm sure we'd remember the rest of life.

PS- I won't run from these encounters. I see these experiences as opportunities.

That's an interesting story. I am also in PA. Why does it seem all the really creepy stuff happen in PA? Lol. I've had so many paranormal experiences in my life that I feel I have a good idea of what is going on with most spirits (whether I'm correct doesn't matter. What matters is how I feel. Lol) and I rarely get frightened but this lady and legend has me confused and a bit freaked out. My body told me this was no ghost, and I know demons are intelligent, organized, and have a hierarchy but why the same appearance all over the world?
Oh I forgot to add that I got a strong sense of the name Mary. When I looked up the legend many others also call her Mary. I felt like it was intelligent and trying to get my attention. As soon as I saw her I stopped my car in the street, said nope, and turned around and went home. Lol  the only odd thing about the restaurant is that it's very old and supposedly the liberty bell stopped there on its way to phila.

Evp move to PA. You will get plenty of experiences. Probably more than you want. I'm between the poconos and phila. Lots of haunted places nearby. Phoenixville supposedly the entire town is haunted. I had a really freaky experience there the first time I went. I actually had a spirit pop into the back seat of my car. I almost drive off the road and hit a snowbank. I followed directions
From mapquest and it took me to a road no where near where I wanted to go. I went back a few weeks later with a friend and could not find the road. I tried mapquest again and the same directions would not show.

Prior to living in CT., I traveled to PA frequently. I was an avid motorcyclist and for almost a decade when I was in my 30's I found myself traveling from Toronto (where I lived most of my life) nearly every long weekend. I fell in love with the Allegheny's. Thankfully CT's, topography is similar to Pennsylvania. I miss those trips. I home based in State College most of the time. Oddly I began helping locals with directions after the many visits. It became a second home to me. My father was born in Pittsburgh btw.

LOL, I can relate. My TomTom once gave me a shortcut to a destination that led to a dead end with a graveyard at the impasse. I remember chuckling asking, "Are you trying to tell me something?"

These stories always fascinate me. They always leave me with the same questions.Is the "Lady in White" phenomena unique to the USA or is it worldwide,could there be variations of the same apparition in different countries/cultures and did they exist before cars and roads?
We have such sights to show you!

I remember reading about a haunting in England. I believe the female ghost had been seen since the 1400's early 1700s. She began as a full-color ghost, but as time went on, she faded to white, and the only thing noticed now is the sound of her footsteps and swishing of her skirts. I'll need to locate my book on the subject and find the correct date and location.

Update: I found the book, but it doesn't say where it was, but the ghost is dressed in 18th Century European clothing, the specter's wearing a red dress, black shoes, and headdress. The spirit was first spotted in the late 1700's; seventy years later, her dress was pink; 1800's her dress was white, and her hair was grey. By 1939 only her footsteps and swishing of her clothing could be heard; in 1971 only her presence was felt by the workmen who were demolishing the house.

EVP: I myself have never run across a glowing half/full body apparition
This lady in white did not glow or look transparent. For the first split second I saw her I thought she was a person but then noticed that she flickered. Like an old time movie. She didn't interact with me but I had the feeling she knew I was there and was intelligent.

CT has plenty of spirit activity as well. I plan on taking my son to Foxwoods Casino for his 21st birthday next year and cannot wait to go back. I had a really unusual and interesting experience at Mystic Seaport years ago. It was more a psychic experience though. This was when I was married and still running from my gifts and refusing to admit I was a medium. I never told my husband about all my experiences. We both went into the room with all the bowriders. It was just the two of us in there and we both saw this little light (I didn't know what orbs were back then) and it appeared over the head of one of the bowriders and when my husband said "look at that" it floated around the room swaying in and out of the bowriders. and then went through the front doors.

The rest of the story is all mediumship information so I thought I'd warn people in case anyone is not interested in medium talk. I feel weird telling stories of my talking to spirits because I don't believe most mediums when they tell similar stories. lol. But my experiences are so unique and interesting I want to tell them in case anyone is interested. That's when I heard them talking. One kept saying " come here". My husband got spooked and didn't want to stay so I told him I would be outside in a minute. I had wondered if he heard the figurehead also. He used to get spooked easily when odd things would happen and would not talk about them so he went outside and we didn't talk about it again. I went up to the odd looking bowrider. It was a man, shorter than the others, and he looked different. He had a green hat and green skirt on. It asked me to say some words (they were not in english so I didn't know what they said and don't remember how they sounded) he said those words would free him from the carving. It said it was an ocean spirit that got trapped inside the carving and held prisoner. I asked him to repeat the words to me. This conversation is all telepathy so it's all in my head. Then another statue screamed something like "no don't do it. You can't let him out. he's evil". he threatened that statue to shut up and then I got really freaked out realizing I am talking to carvings and I just couldn't handle it anymore so I started walking towards the door to leave and he told me that he had the door forced shut and he would not let me leave until I said those words. I kept walking and was able to walk out with no problems so I went outside and tried to calm myself down before finding my husband.

That happened a long time ago and I still think about it. I tried researching whether there are any tales or lore of spirits being trapped inside figureheads/bowriders and could not find anything. I plan on checking them out again when I go next year.

That's so weird. There has to be some reason behind why it would change over time. I honestly never believed in urban legends or tales people tell from around the world. I just thought it was people making up the stories to get attention. They hear a story and decide to say they witnessed it also. My mind was blown when I witnessed this lady in white and then read she was an urban legend. It made me change my mind about urban legends existing. Now I really would like concrete answers as to why it happens. There must be some intelligent organization behind it. From what I researched, people experience the same thing I did such as her being dressed in all white, crying, and her name Mary. what the heck?. lol The only thing I know for sure is that my body reacted to her like it does when around higher level demons.

A tangible question/answer is whether this is physical phenomena and truly visible to the eye. It might not be capable of being captured by any type of recording device AKA "a camera". It might be a form of projection but as to a source I won't begin to speculate. There has been several personal experiences where I've recorded and phenomena occurred including the same exact witnessing of the event by others (collective) yet it was not captured physically by a recording. One time, 3 of us collectively heard a bipod walk directly in front of us. Nine audio recorders and 1 Sony NightShot only picked up the three of us in synchronicity saying out loud "Footsteps". We heards the steps increase in amplitude as it approached and faded to silence as it walked away from us.

I agree with your suggestion and have thought the same myself. I believe when we hear or see spirits, sometimes it is a projection of voice or vision and so it will not be recorded on any media. I believe these times the spirit chooses who it wants to project itself to. This would also explain why there are not any apparitions caught on video. I have not seen any videos that I believe were real apparitions. Photos I have seen spirits show up in but for how many people see apparitions one would think there would be much more photographic evidence unless the spirits are trying to not show up (which is my belief).

In the old days, they would bury women in their nightgowns or chemises. That would explain some of the urban legends of "The White Lady" or "Lady in White." And then some women died right before, during, or after on their wedding. Thus they would still be wearing their wedding dresses, which would account for the white dress.

Also, it could be that some of the ghosts are residual hauntings, which are images of an event recorded into the makeup of an area. If there is a high density of limestone, quartz, sandstone, etc. it could record the images and release them later. I guess it could wear out in time like an old VHS or cassette tape does when replayed often.

Mac,
When I saw this lady I had a feeling her dress may have been a wedding dress but a very simple one. IDK why but I kept feeling like she wanted me to believe she was crying over a lost baby.

TBH I am still freaked out about the whole thing and I am supposed to be someone who doesn't scare or get freaked out easily. I think it's one thing to work helping people get rid of demons, who do show themselves as anything they want. Hell I even came across two demons that showed themselves as clowns!!! (because one of the persons in the house was afraid of clowns). And it's another thing to come across proof that some urban legends are true. That is accepting that the demonic (no way ghosts would pull off such an elaborate hoax) has a very long and complex organizational plans of attack that reach across the entire world.

Interesting theory about the natural rocks diminishing in recording capabilities over time. That makes sense but I wonder why and how they change in appearance other than diminishing.

Satan is real. Sorry. I totally believe he is an influence. We live in spiritual warfare. Ying versus yang. Good versus Bad. There are forces out there we don't understand that influence our lives. And it's all a part of the unknown.

Yes I agree. I like to validate everyone's opinion but I believe the 'lady in white' is a demon working in an organized, intelligent structure that extends worldwide. I don't know what the goal of this elaborate ruse is, but it has to be demons. Ghosts would not organize and deceive on such a level. I have found many people do not want to accept the fact that demons are real and are more common than they want to believe, so they look for other reasons. So many paranormal investigators and people with an interest in the paranormal want to believe that demonic hauntings are rare and they are so wrong. Some find out the hard way. There are specifics that happen during hauntings to let you know it may be demonic. For instance, ghosts do not growl or give people nightmares.

What brought you to this conclusion? Please point me to other articles suggesting the same thing. That's quite a definitive statement to make Di.

Believe it or not, I'm trying to stay open. I just read a VERY interesting article. I'm not trying to come out of the closet but I will say I'm virtually closed minded on religion and consider myself virtually an "atheist" yet I still pray occasionally. Science doesn't have all the answers and I'm not in denial of that, but science is the best we have because it separates facts from opinions. I was born with the power to think so I don't easily accept on word without a level of substantiation. My rant is over :)

Um Ladydi, you can't make a blanket statement that ALL the "Lady in White" encounters are demonic. Don't get me wrong a few may be demon interactions, but most are ghosts encounters. Also, what you call demons can be other peoples Gods/Deities. Some are Gods of other religions that the Christians labeled "Demons" to get other people to forsake their pre-Christian faith and then join the Christian churches. The Celtic Gods have been called "Demons" by the Catholic church, among others.

The reason I know this is because of my surname. The name MacCionoadha means "The Son of the beloved of Aodh." Aodh/Aed, is the Irish god of fire, prince of the Daoine Sidhe and a god in the underworld. And unfortunately, I have been called the "Spawn of Satan" way too many times for my liking. They deemed Aodh and the other Gods and Goddess evil and prohibited the worship of them. It is the same thing they do for different groups, religious festivals, or holidays. Easter was not about Christ in the old prechristian days. It was a ritual day for the German Goddess Esther (or Ostara), and the original linking of the hare and egg is to her.
