A Twist On The “Water Droplet Phenomenon”

water sprayed from nowhere.The Water Droplet Phenomenon is when you are hit with water falling from above with no rational explanation.  Often times people have this happen indoors, and search the ceiling for signs of a water leak, but find none.  Outside it is harder to debunk, but often it happens when there is no rational reason.

Accounts Of The Water Droplet Phenomenon

There are many, many accounts of the water droplet phenomenon, similar to this one posted on Project Paranormal:

It started right before my mother passed away in 1998, when I was sitting in my living room and a small water droplet fell on my arm. I, of course, thought it was from my ceiling and I took a step ladder to check and see if there was moisture on it anywhere. It was dry as a bone. I tried to figure it out without any luck. This now happens fairly frequently but usually under times of stress for me or my family. It not only happens to me, but to my husband as well. We both are very baffled about this “water droplet phenomena” and have no idea what to think of it. The droplet is about the size of a tear and once when I tasted it…it was salty like a tear. Please, help me figure this out. If the water was coming from my ceiling, by now, I would have some sort of stain on it. It also happens when it is NOT raining. I and my husband are not bothered by it…we just want to understand what it means. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Water Sprayed From Nowhere

Recently I came across a report posted on Reddit of not just a droplet falling from the sky, but of a person being sprayed with a whole stream of water, seemingly from nowhere.

I was with two friends standing outside my friends house. Ok we did smoke weed so we were blazed but I’ve never hallucinated anything on weed.

It was a bright sunny day. No rain whatsoever. Pretty dry and humid like a normal Florida day.

All of a sudden…my leg is sprayed by water. Water hits my legs from a horizontal way, from the side. I don’t say anything for some reason prob because I was baked.

My friend says aloud ” anybody else feel that?” I said yeah. And he says how he was hit by like a water spray on his arm.

We brushed it off because we had no clue what it could be…but later I thought hard about it.

Could it be some type of plant spraying water or what? Or is it a jinn or something.

People commenting proposed that it could be someone messing with them, or even a bird pooping on them.  When I talked with him, he denied that anyone was around other then him and his friends.  I’m also pretty sure that birds don’t poop sideways and that no matter how baked a person was, they could tell the difference between bird poop and water.

In talking with him he added:

My friend was standing 5-6 in front of me and we were both sprayed from a sideways angle on a hot , dry day with no other source of water near us. There may be some rational expiation but nothing I can figure out

This seems very similar to the “Stones From Nowhere” phenomenon, but with water instead.  Perhaps some spirit took offense to them smoking weed right there?  It is all just speculation at this point, especially with only one account to work with.

The more of these reports we have on file, the more sense we can make of all these paranormal encounters with water from nowhere!


  1. I have experienced a single drop of water hitting my head and mostly my arm. Sometimes after a stressful event and sometimes when I’ve had a choice to make. It has happened in many places; at home, outside, at work and even in my car.
    Some say it’s a sign from God, or when ghosts are around. I am sensitive but it happens at home and I know my home is not haunted so I am still at a loss as to why it occurs.

  2. I was just sitting on the couch talking with my mom on the phone, my bf sitting next to me and the tv on,… when I suddenly 2drops landing on my upper left arm out of nowhere ~ identical in size similar of soft contact lenses, not salty but not sweet either just clean tasting water, They were on my arm until I wiped it off 5 minutes later, never dripped. I tried to attach a pic but it didn’t allow me. what does this mean???

  3. A few days ago, I felt a drop on my right forearm as I stood in my kitchen. The drop was the size of a tear, felt like water, and was clear. I didn’t taste it. No indication of water or cracks on the ceiling. About 30 minutes later, it happened again. In the kitchen, but about 12 inches away from the original spot. I will say that in the days leading up to this phenomenon, I had a lot on my mind, pent up emotions, a decision to make, and I had prayed that God would surround me and my family with angels. I only mention this info because I suspect it may have something to do with it. I am just relieved others had had this, and I’m not alone.

  4. Yesterday I picked up three pairs of jeans of a storage bin in my closet that were all completely soaked. I looked for a leak but there was none. No clothes hanging up above them were wet. The storage bin had a puddle of water on it were the jeans were sitting. Then last night I was making a grilled cheese n as I was waiting to flip it I was holding the spatula in my right hand n a huge drop of water landed right on it. I looked but again everything was none dry. I’m scared I don’t know what’s going on.

  5. I’ve had water dripping on face neck and arms most of night last night ceiling not dripping my bf didn’t experience it an when he touched where I felt water at he said he felt nothing it happened several times I even switched to other side of bed same thing.

  6. martina v Thomas says

    I set my alarm for 545 am to get my children on the bus. I snooze it twice ND wake up at 620am. This morning I just cut the alarm clock off and dozed back off. I was woke up to a single droplet of water on my face close to my upper lip. I looked at the clock it was 6:20am. I looked up to see if it came from the ceiling… No sign of water. I looked outside the window to see if it was raining and it was not. All I know is I’ve been seeking God like never before and it’s no coincidence that I was woke up on time. It was God for sure… In the Bible God refers to Himself as the living water. Hope this helps and glad to see others have experienced this awesome move! Stay blessed

  7. I had this experience 3 times. Water drop from above in the kitchen landing on my arm on one occasion, then my shoulder on another. It wasnt raining out and it was a hot summer. I inspected the ceiling on both occasions and there was no way it came from this dimension. The first time i called my son over because i couldnt believe it. My daughter laughed. Then several weeks later she came running out of her room freaked out and said it had just happened to her and she was sorry for not believing me. My boyfriends father had died in this house and it was definitely haunted. There was alot of paranormal activity there. When i researched it i found that this type of phenomenon is related to hauntings.

  8. The water drop has happened to me quite a few times and every time I was inside my home minding my own business. However about an hour ago I was reading a book when outta nowhere I was sprayed and it hit me in the forehead, left forearm, my eyes and lips. The instant it hit me I jerked and squinted. It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only one this happens to, but I hope we can find out soon what’s going on.

  9. I too experienced a droplet on my lip while laying in bed last night. I stood on my bed and the ceiling was completely dry. I have no idea where it came from. It was like a tear drop. Before closing my eyes I prayed for my dad. His health is declining and I’m so worried about him. I’m not sure if that was a coincidence, but I felt it was a response to my prayer.

    • Um… I had an experince about this when I was in an island with my relatives last 2016. We were there for my relative who is becoming a nun. Then i was alone that morning then I felt a water that dropped at my forehead in the forest. I touched my forehead but there wasnt any water that I can feel. Then I actually had a crush thinking that i could be friends with him. Then i was upset that he doenst care, so i unfriended him and I saw a word “move on” with black stripes. God wanted me to move on from him cause i would believe on what the tarot was saying to me. Before I could confess to him, believing that i like him and he likes me and that i wanted some fantasy in my life, i saw a word “let some things be” in someone else t-shirt. Gid was trying to make stop in believing or do anything wrong cause things will ruin for me.

  10. I just had this phenomenon happen to me about 30 minutes ago.

    My brother and I were sitting on the couch watching an episode of an anime we both enjoy. A single water drop fell from above me and plopped directly on the center of the top of my head. I both heard the sound of it hitting my head and felt it, but when I touched my head to find out what had landed on me, my head was completely dry. I asked my brother if he had heard the soft splat of the drop, but he said that he hadn’t. I asked him to touch my head to see if he could feel any moisture, but he also felt nothing there. We both checked the ceiling to confirm that there wasn’t any water coming from a leak in the ceiling because it is stormy outside, and the ceiling was firm, dry, and intact.

    this is the first time I’ve experienced this, and as you can see, i immediately looked it up, and here I am sharing with everyone here.

  11. I’ve felt a water droplet a few times in my life…that’s why I looked it up to see if anyone else has felt it. Usually when it’s raining and I’m calm. It’s like a drop of water has managed to pass through all the other molecules above me in my car or in my house and it hits me. It’s always when I’m very calm or absent minded.

  12. Weed doesn’t make you hallucinate, but I spoke it in the spot where I’ve been feeling water droplets hit me. It happens every time I sit on the computer chair. It’s been occurring for at least two weeks. A friend passed away in our house earlier this year, but the water droplets are just now falling from what I thought was the ceiling… There are no stains on the ceiling and the roof was just recently replaced. Anyway, my friend didn’t like weed, never wanted to be around it, and always asked if I smoked it. Kind of eerie…

  13. Umm.. I had an experience about it when I was in an island with my relatives last 2016 in may. We were visiting a relative who was an aunt. Then one morning, i was strolling in the forest then i suddenly felt a drop of water on my forehead. But I touched it there was nothing. There was a guy whom i wanted to befriend but i unfriended him cause he doesnt care. After i unfriended him i saw a word “move on” with black stripes then the new beginning song by james spiteri played. God wanted me to move on and not believe what the tarot was saying to me cause after a month after that in july, me and my friend were playing the tarot. Before i could tell my feelings to him, believing he likes me and i also liked him, i saw a word “let some things be” on a t-shirt and that night, it was really traffic and it was rainy, i ran as fast as i could to confess my love.. My feelings were developed my the tarot. If i let some things be, things would be fine for me now and him. God didnt want me to do any of that.

  14. I have experienced this for a long time now and have never found any reason why this happens. This morning I woke up and as usual when it happens, I get a teardrop on my lips and as usual, I wipe it away. I am starting to be more conscious about it now and the next time it happens I need to capture it instead of wiping it away. As far as I know, it only happens when I am indoors and always when I am in bed. There is no time frame when it happens, it could be at the beginning when I am about to fall asleep or when I wake up but always when I am in that cloudy state going into or out of each phase. Our home is normally cool with the thermostat set at 68 degrees. I have reviewed this as a possible reason but found that there was no condensation on the ceiling anywhere in the house. Not sure what it is or how it is caused but will continue to observe.

  15. This just happened to me, it had confused me so much. Just sitting on the sofa alone and a blob of water just fell and landed on my arm. I was checking the ceiling and even went upstairs to check no water on floor up there, but nothing. So odd!

  16. My wife and I also experienced it though we were not together when it both happened to us, and in the same room which is our bedroom. I experienced it, I think, twice in the middle of a hot day. My wife experienced it in the wee hours of a warm night, and in the day too. There was no leak in the ceiling even when it rains. We have a crucifix on the wall above our bed like in the monasteries and catholic hospitals. It all happened when we were undergoing severe trials financially. I guess it’s a spiritual blessing from heaven just like the belief of some who experienced it also. Sometimes my wife and I think that it could be a sign from a poor soul in purgatory needing some prayers. To sum it al, we believe it’s something spiritual. It could also be our guardian angel trying to cool us from the heat of worries. By the way, we’re from the Philippines.

  17. Ive experence water spray out or no where its in a fine mist and always cool and
    refreshing and always perfect sunny weather to nite for the first time it was nite time

  18. I also

  19. William King says

    It just happened to me in my room by my self I was just sitting hear lost in my mind and out of no where a water drop fell on my pants and fell to the point where I could feel it slash and i immediately stood up and look at the roof completely dry my drink is nowhere near me so I look it up and find this I mean my mom passed away three years ago and I havr felt she passed on to me. But I don’t know but its real for sure

  20. Water droplets just fell on my hand. Well 1 big drop. I dont understand. I just looked up, to see if it was coming from my ceiling. But nope there was nothing. I wish i had better understanding. But very strange.

  21. For the first time today after swimming I got out of the pool to shower to remove the chlorine and I thought I felt a sprinkler on my arms. There was no sprinkler around and I hadn’t turned the water on yet. Before swimming I felt a tingling in my lips. After I read awhile, I went up to the condo we are renting and I thought I stepped in water. I even asked my husband if he spilled something. There was nothing to wipe up. He told me to go take a shower maybe I was just out too long. I took a shower dried and dressed and came out to the living room and I felt like I Was stepping in water. We went down to watch the sunset. No clouds in the sky and I felt sprinkles on my skin again, on my hands and arms. I had long sleeves on. I asked my husband if he felt it and two other people who were there. No one felt it, there were no clouds, no sprinklers. I kept feeling it on and off. I was dry. That’s why I looked it up.
