Whenever I do a house party on the coast of Maine, the first question most of the guests ask me is, “Do you feel or see anyone around me?” Or, “Do you see or sense spirit in any of the rooms or around the house?”
Well, to be very honest I have never been in any home or dwelling that did not have any spirit in residence. They typically hang around a house because they used to live in it, or at some time in the past they were on that property for some reason.
When I am asked to check in, to see who may be in residence, spirit will speak to me in my head, or show themselves. They also like to move objects. Why? Because they can. Often, they will move a picture off center, especially a picture of themselves, just to let you know they are around. Read the rest of this entry »
Spirits and ghosts both fascinate and frighten people. There are also the believers and non-believers, with the non-believers constantly needing proof that spirits exist. For thousands of years people have held the belief in the spirit world, that those who have died can come back and visit their loved ones, or places in which they lived.
What are some of the signs that a spirit has returned to its home or place of origin? These signs can manifest as cold or hot spots within the home, voices, footsteps, even full manifestation and ectoplasm.
Why is it that they need to return? Most spirits or ghosts exist in another, parallel dimension. They are either trapped there or waiting to be reborn, which could take anywhere from weeks to years, to millennia. Read the rest of this entry »
Just to let you know my friend, don’t take anything for granted. The next time you plan a family trip, remember, it could become a scary ride. Yes, even road trips can be haunted.
I was born in New Brunswick, on the East Coast of Canada, and through a variety of moves over the years ended up living in the province of British Columbia, which is on the opposite coast.
There are 12 children in our family and for most of the years that I have lived in the West, I was the only sibling residing out this way. Consequently, there were many times when I would take a plane trip and head East to visit my rowdy, motley crew.
A few years back, after a four hour plane ride, I ended up at my little sister’s place in Ontario. Because my sister prefers driving, we hopped in her car the next day and she drove for another six hour trip, and we landed at my brother and sister-in-law’s home in Montreal. We spent a casual few days visiting with them, as well as other members of our clan. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people have experienced, or at least know someone who has experienced a spirit coming into their space. There are, however, those who balk and laugh at even the notion that a spirit may exist. Some people are also terrified of paranormal phenomena, while there are those that co-exist comfortably with spirits, like old friends. Which person are you?
For the skeptic, just leave them to their beliefs. It is their right of free will to see what they choose to see, or not see what they choose not to see. Many of them have experienced some type of spirit encounter, however they have buried it and fluffed it off as nothing. With the skeptic, there is no use trying to convince them otherwise, as their mind is made up. And that is their prerogative. Read the rest of this entry »
The area where I live is famous for being haunted. In fact, our “Asylum 49” was featured on popular paranormal television shows like Ghost Hunting, Paranormal Investigation and Ghost Adventures. This notorious old place is thought to be one of the greatest Halloween venues to visit on this side of the country.
Asylum 49’s haunted structure takes up about half of the old hospital. The other half of the hospital is the only nursing and hospice home in the county. Asylum 49 is only open to the public from September 1st to October 31st, but in that short time they raise a lot of money. After it was featured on Paranormal Investigation, tourists and paranormal investigation teams started visiting from all over the world. Asylum 49 is also available for private tours in the off-season. Read the rest of this entry »
The vintage or retro trend is more popular than ever and has more people buying used clothing and household items, as well as antiques. But one does not usually think about the metaphysical energies that may be attached these old clothes, jewelry and pieces of furniture.
Believe it or not, ghosts sometimes do follow a beloved object purchased from an estate sale. A flea market or thrift store may be selling objects that carry the negative energy of bad relationships. Pawn shops may have beautiful jewelry for sale, but you may unknowingly pick up the grief associated with having to sell a beloved object.
Jewelry is especially problematic, and even gifts can carry negative energies. It does not matter if the jewelry was physically cleaned before you purchase it. One should spiritually cleanse every object that is second hand, to keep negative energies out of your energetic space. You can also ‘charge’ jewelry to help you with things you want to accomplish, for protection, or to attract good energies. Read the rest of this entry »
The hosts of these shows often say, witnessing the paranormal often brings more questions than answers. Are spirits choosing to stay on the earth plane, or are they trapped? Do they need our help to move on to the next world? I have been fortunate to go on paranormal investigations with teams in California and have witnessed some pretty amazing things. Often getting the answers to who the spirit was in life doesn’t happen, and doing research into the history of the area only hints at possibilities of their identity. Read the rest of this entry »
In the Fall of 1900, Galveston, Texas, was hit by a major hurricane. At the time it was the greatest natural disaster ever to occur in the United States. In the fall of 2008, it was hit with another one. In the fall of 2010, the Galveston Historical Foundation decided to hold a séance in the downstairs great room of its offices, in downtown Galveston.
Galveston’s known history begins with its Native American tribes, sought out and revered by other tribes for their healing arts. Later, the natural port gave shelter to Spanish and French explorers, and was even home to the infamous pirate, Jean Lafitte. Galveston’s shipping history brought waves of first Italians and Greeks to settle there. Later, it became the major port of entry for German, Scottish and Irish immigrants making their way to new homes.
Prior to 1900, Galveston was referred to as the “Wall Street of the West”, because of the wealth, commerce and industry at its hub. It is also known to many as the most haunted city in the United States. Read the rest of this entry »
