They said: ‘It was a terrifying experience, and still gives me the heebie jeebies even now.’

Hoards of other Mumsnet users responded to the thread, posting some very sinister stories.

People revealed they’d witnessed life after death, including one who said they felt their mother stroking their hair the day after she died

Many had experiences with the afterlife, including one who said they felt their mother stroking their hair the day after she died.

One said: ‘My mother died 10 years ago and the day after I was in a twilight sleep when she started stroking my hair and saying ‘Why don’t you let people know how wonderful you are?’ It was real and I was startled. 

‘Upon feeling my fear she was pulled swiftly back into ”the light.” This all happened just above my head.’

Another said: ‘After my granddad died I was waiting in a car on my own (about 7 years old) and saw his reflection sat behind me in the rear view mirror facing the same way as me. When I turned around there was no one there.’ 

Others had received spooky terrifying calls from anonymous numbers, including one who got an anonymous voicemail from someone making demonic hissing sounds

Others recalled some terrifying phone calls they’d had from unknown callers.

One said: ‘I once was half asleep, drifting off and heavily medicated when I heard my house phone ringing at 10.00pm. I dragged myself out of bed and picked it up but just heard noise in the background and hung up. 

‘I went back to bed and fell to sleep. The next day I saw I had a missed call from my house phone at 1.30am in the morning on my mobile and a voicemail and it was of someone making hissing noises and somewhat demonic sounds. But there wasn’t anybody in the house apart from me.’

Another wrote: ‘When I was about 20, I lived in a flat with my then boyfriend. He was away overseas for work and I was home alone. I had a really long hot shower (hair mask, full shave, exfoliate etc) and came out of the shower into the bedroom. 

‘My landline rang and I answered it and it was my mum.. ‘What the bloody he’ll do you think you are doing?’ Me – ‘erm. What?’ Mum – ‘answering your phone and heavy breathing and whispering down the phone?!?!’ [sic].’
