About Me

My Photo
About me.....I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. I just needed to know that I could still communicate with him. I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on that had to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I am now a Certified Paranormal Investigator and have my own Paranormal Group. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

THE VERY HAUNTED LINCOLN THEATER-YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED!!! RE-POST

Links to this post

Well we are right in the mist of summer and that means kids are out of school and parents are trying to find ways to entertain them and that more than likely will include movies, and going to shows so I thought I would do a re-post on the very haunted Lincoln Theater in Decatur, Illinois.   By far, this is one of my FAVORITE places to ghost hunt.  I hate to say it, but I do believe that it was closed last year to the public and yes, even for groups to do ghost hunts. :(
 
This is the blog post I wrote back in 2013 after attending the American Ghost Society Conference in Decatur, Illinois.  I had one of the MOST IMPRESSIVE flashlight communication sessions I have ever experienced down in the basement of the theater.  And yes...I know...many investigators don't put much "stock" in the flashlight communication (having the spirits turn the light on and off in response to your questions) but I do.  Anyway, below is my post and be sure to check out the pictures closely.  And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!  I exceeded my goal last month of having over 10, 000 viewers read my blog!!!!  I ended up with 10,597!!!!!  YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!  I appreciate the support and I LOVE my viewers.  It's because of you that I keep writing all the crazy tails that I experience with the paranormal.  Have a great week. :)
 
Below are photo's that I took during this year's American Ghost Society Conference in Decatur, Illinois and again this year IT did NOT disappoint!!!   The photo's below are inside the Haunted Lincoln Theater around 12:00am.  The photo's are of a staircase that reportedly is haunted by a spirit named Red.  He was a stagehand that fell asleep at the top of the stairs, and fell to his death!  You can read about the tragic history of this Theater at http://haunteddecatur.com/lincoln.html
 
 At the top of the stairs, many people have reported feeling scared....and heard loud voices.  Possibly actors who had preformed at the theater....... maybe talking with Red???  Who knows.  But I can tell you that I watched a couple go up the stairs very calmly and come RUNNING back down just freaking out that they heard voices right by them!!!!!!!!!  And believe me when I tell you they were serious! LOL  The guy was shaking and the girl was ready to leave....and I mean leave the theater.....SHE WAS DONE!!!
 
Below are the photo's I took of them RUNNING back down the stairs screaming!  The girl was in front coming down as fast as she could and she was physically shaking!  She just kept screaming "SOMEONE IS UP THERE.......SOMEONE IS UP THERE............"!!!!!! And the guy was RIGHT behind her carrying a flashlight.  So I just turned around and snapped a few pictures of them not really sure of what was going on but if something was by them, I was hoping to catch it on one of the pictures.  BOY....was I in for a surprise!!!!  The pictures came out pretty blurry because of how fast they were coming back down the stairs.  So, for that sorry...it was the best I could do.
 
None of that is really that out of the ordinary.....right?  When someone is scared...... they run.....they scream....they shake.   But that ISN'T what I found strange!!!!!  Check out the pictures at the bottom.  Photos 1-5 are just pictures of the staircase but there is an Orb in pic 4 that is in the exact spot that something VERY STRANGE was caught on camera.  Also, the other photos 1-5 have a bright Orb at the top of the stairs where Red was to have fallen asleep and fell off.
 
OK.....now I want you to take a GOOD look at photo 6.  This is the original photo of the couple running back down the stairs in fear.  As I was going over the photo's, and I came to this one, and INSTANTLY thought..........WAIT!!!!!!...........What the heck???????????  I was standing there watching these TWO people come down the stairs.......but yet.....there are THREE people in this photo????  Who WAS the third person?????  I can assure you there were only TWO people on those stairs at the time.  Can you see what I see in pic 7?  I was sooooo excited about capturing this figure on camera I couldn't wait to show it to Luke and Adam, two guys who have been in this field for many years and have been involved with Troy Taylor from the very beginning of the AGS conference and I would consider them most definitely  PROFESSIONALS in this field.  They where VERY impressed and wanted me to send them the photo to analysis it further. 
 
Now, as if the photo isn't enough, when you add HEAT IMAGING you can clearly see....there are three area's detected.  Or two people and an unknown.......spirit?????
 
Luke said that the photo was really interesting because it was as if someone was standing BEHIND the stairs because you can see the stairs visibly in front of the figure.   To me......it looks like a sailor uniform.......and one of the main performers at the Lincoln was Bob Hope who did a skit in a sailor suit.  Luke seems to see a man in a shirt with a tie, and in slacks.  What do you see???  Whether a sailor or a man in a shirt and tie, you can't deny that something or someone was on those stairs.
 
This was an awesome time and I can't wait to go back next year!!!  I'll be posting more from the conference......just as exciting as this!!!!!  Stay tuned.....

POLTERGEIST ACTIVITY IN 1965-REAL OR NOT???

Links to this post
Even in 1965 Poltergeist activity was being filmed.

In 1965 there were strange happenings occurring inside the small house of Marcia Howells in Swansea, Wales. The mother and her family had been tormented by an unseen force that pushed and tossed their furniture around. Not knowing what to do, the Howells called in the local police to assist in the matter. However the police quickly found themselves rendered helpless against the unexplained phenomena that was trashing the Howells’ home.

Like most true poltergeist cases, the happenings inside the Rhondda street house abruptly stopped and no logical explanation was ever found.
Poltergeist activity is said to not be induced by “ghosts”, rather many parapsychologists believe that psychokinetic energy is to blame. A force of energy that has not been yet proven real but has been observed in the wild by trained professionals. Anyone else remember Nina Kulagina?

DEMONS HATE ROSES!!!

Links to this post
So, in honor of all of US that watched the Bachelorette this week and watched Kaitlyn give the Final Rose to Shawn, I thought I would post about ghosts and roses.  I am not only a ghost hunter but a reality show junkie!  I know....I'm not proud of it but it is....what it is. LOL
 
 
Now, the video below is not mine and I have no affiliate with the people who recorded the video other than I thought it was interesting and you guys might enjoy it.

 
 
I am going to confess that before I started researching something to do with Roses and Ghosts I had not ever heard that Demons DO NOT like ROSES!!!  Have you????  Well, from what I have found out is that Demons will burn roses because they represent "purity" and "goodness".  Also, once a demon is gone, people begin to smell roses.
Below is what livescifi13 posted about their video:
  
This is video excerpt is from Day 2 of the Sallie House LIVE Investigation.  A lot of people asked why we had numerous roses on set, well back when the previous tenants lived in the house they reported that a rose that was placed on one of the counters’, and curiously was found burnt from the inside out.   We speculated that due to the possible demonic entity that we which seems to make its self known every time were in the house, we held a rose during the session to see if it would prompt any negative responses.  Upon further we research we also discovered that roses are often smelled after a demonic entity is exorcised from its host. Could this be why there were such negative responses during the session?

Anyway, love to hear your feedback about this subject.  So, send me an email and let me know what you think.  Hope everyone is having a great week!  Until next time....

WHERE DID THIS CEMETERY COME FROM???

Links to this post
                                                          BUCKNER CEMETERY
                                                             McKinney, Texas

Who knew?  Deak and I were out driving around this past Sunday and we stopped at Garden Center just off Hwy 380 just before you get into McKinney, Texas.  Now, the Garden Center was closed so we just parked the car and was walking around looking at their trees and plants they had for sale.  There is nothing but concrete around and behind the Garden Center because McKinney has a big Trade Days open to the public every 3rd Monday and this Garden Center is located right in front of the Trades Day lots.

So, we walk toward the back of the lot and MUCH TO MY SURPRISE what do you think I see......right in the middle of this parking lot there is a cemetery!!!!   HOLY COW!!!!  Who would ever guess there would be a cemetery right in the middle of this big parking lot!!!!  It is the strangest thing to see a cemetery with just a few graves in it, a couple of trees and a small fence around it.  Now is it haunted???  I don't know.... but you can bet I will find out!  It just sits there minding its own business with a few trees around it, like ...this is my place and I am NOT moving know matter what is around me, I was here first!!! LOL   And I have to tell you...it was a little sad to me to think that soooo many people visit this area every month and know one takes care of the cemetery.  The stones are all broken.  Some have been laid against trees but most are just laying on the ground.  You can tell, it needs a lot of TLC.


Now, this looks like an old map to me but
I tried to circle where the cemetery is.  But now,
when we were there, it seems that the Trades Day
has expanded the area and is all back behind the cemetery now.
You can clearly see concrete surrounding the cemetery.
 

So, what do you think the FIRST thing I did was when I got home???? You guessed it!!! I was on the internet looking up any and everything to do with Buckner Cemetery.


Now, I will say I couldn't find a lot on it, but the things I did find out, were VERY interesting.  Now, here's what I do know in summary...

Buckner was the first town in Collin County. It was named by John McGarrah for his home town of Buckner, Arkansas. When Collin County was formed in 1846 by the state of Texas, the residents were told to pick a county seat within 3 miles of the geographic center of the county and name it "Buckner." The residents picked the existing town of Buckner because it was the only town in the county. However, it was 7 miles from the center of the county. The exact center of the county is on the East Fork flood plain. Two sites were picked for the county seat. Eleven residents voted on the location of the county seat with 10 picking the present-day McKinney square location. They tried to name the county seat Buckner as instructed, but the post office said the name "Buckner" was already in use. The residents named the county seat "McKinney" after the man who was in the state legislature from this area, Collin McKinney. The stores in Buckner were literally dragged to the square in McKinney and the town of Buckner disappeared. There was a Kiowa Indian tribe that lived near Buckner. It was led by a chief named Spotted Tail. As long as the Kiowas lived there, no other Indians attacked the area.

The ancient McGarrah-O’Brien Cemetery is slightly Northeast of the site of Old Ft. Buckner, the first County Seat of Collin County, and is a part of John McGarrah’s headright. According to the Peters Colony book, “John McGarrah, a family man, came to Peters Colony in 1842 and claimed his headright of 640 acres. His patent was number 981.” He built a little store or trading post, primarily to trade with the Indians who brought in furs to trade for goods he sold in the little store. He is listed in the 1850 census of Collin County as a family man, age 45 and came to the area from Fayetteville, Arkansas, where the family migrated in 1821.

Only a few headstones remain in the old cemetery, but according to J. B. Wilmeth who was an elected official at the first election in 1846, it once had a large number of graves marked with Bois d’Arc slabs. (I know, I didn't know what Bois d' Arc slabs were either.  It is a type of wood that was very resilient to weather conditions.  It was often used as a marker for a grave and sometimes could even be carved into different shapes).
 
Those listed as buried there include:
Edna Fallis, wife of B. J. O’Brien, 1816 - 1897
Jane, wife of George W. O’Brien, Jan. 27, 1905 - Dec. 17, 1871
David O’Brien, March 4, 1808 - Nov. 1, 1885
Parmelia, wife of David O’Brien, June 27, 1823 - July 12, 1870
Franklin, son of David and Parmelia, July 23, 1853 - July 12, 1870
George W. O’Brien, Dec. 8, 1799 - June 30, 1876
Lorenzo J. Graves, 1818 - 1886
Reily, son of T. F. and A. F. Darnell, 1829 - 1880
Laurence, son of A. G. and N. J. Donaldson, 1879 - 1899
Mary Jane Donaldson, 1854 - 1886
Polly T. Graves, Sept. 22, 1822 - July 31, 1898
Then, too, the old Indian who lived with his small tribe near Buckner and is credited with saving the settlement from invasion of Comanche tribes is buried in an unmarked Christian grave at his own request (Kiowa chief, Spotted Tail). Chief Spotted Tail  has been called a hero because he helped bury people in the middle of the night so others would not have to who died in a smallpox epidemic in 1873. He died from smallpox himself  shortly after and was buried at the Buckner cemetery. He was given a white man's burial.
 
You can bet there will be a PART 2 to this story.  I will let you know what I find out about if it is haunted or not after I do an investigation.  CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

FIRST CONTACT-REMOVING SPIRITS FROM YOUR HOME

Links to this post
Nice moving animation of a very haunted house with lots of ghosts and goblins but just one skeleton playing with it's own skull



So, now you have realized that you are NOT ALONE in your house!  What next?  How do you remove an "unwanted guest"? Just ask them to leave.....  Ok.  Maybe it's not THAT easy but sometimes it can be done without a lot of involvement from others or a lot of "hoop la"....so to speak.

By far, the simplest method of removing a spirit from a home involves talking to it.  YES...you have to TALK to it.  When you are dealing with a human ghost or ghosts, this is the first route you should take.  It's surprising how many people will endure a haunting without ever attempting to reach out and communicate with the spirit that is haunting them.  Think about it.....if you walk into a room, do want people to acknowledge you or completely ignore you???  So many times....that all it is...human spirits just are simply trying to get your attention.  And if they can't get it from you....they will try and get it from others.  What I mean by that is, if you aren't going to talk with them, then they will attempt to get the attention of someone that will....other family members, friends anyone staying in the location.

Why are they trying to get your attention???  I don't know...you will have to ask them. LOL Awww I'm just kidding with you.  One of the most common reasons is....they are trying to get a message out....maybe to you....maybe to someone else.  Others are simply lonely, and want nothing more than to be recognized by the people living in the house. Ghosts that are lonely and want acknowledgment tend to act out, especially if they feel someone in the house should be able to hear them, but who nevertheless ignores them.  Lets go back to our "walking into a room" scenario for a minute.  You walk into a room and you see someone you want to talk to.  So, you jump up and down and wave your hands over your head trying to get there attention...but yet....they don't respond to you in any way.  So what now?  So....you get LOUDER....cause more commotion, jump higher and scream "hey I'm over here!"  "Look at me, would ya"?  Ok...maybe you wouldn't do that but I would. LOL
Anyway, I think you get the point.


Sometimes spirits will try to communicate with one person in the home whom they feel will be able to hear them.  So they are not tied to the home, they are attracted to a particular person.  And yes, if that person moves...guess what...your ghost may just follow you because they feel that you in someway can communicate with them.  Spirits who feel that you have the ability(and you may not even realize you have it)to communicate with them often will act out just like little children until they DO get your attention even if you are yelling at them to stop!

If you are not psychic, how do you talk to a ghost?  You don't have to be a psychic to talk with spirits.  You just have to be willing...The simplest way to communicate with a ghost is to speak to them just like they were any living person.  If there is a place in your home where the ghost regularly makes its presence known, go to that place and address the spirit.  You may feel a little silly at first, since you are essentially talking to thin air.  Get over that and talk to them in a genuine and forthright manner.  You got this!

Try to set up lines of communication.  When you ask a spirit to produce itself physically understand you are asking lot.  This takes a great deal of energy.  Ask for knocking sounds or other signs but sure you understand whatever you are asking them to do may take more effort than you think.

Finally, you should explain to the spirit that it has been scaring people and you have to "draw some lines in the sand".  Many spirits are simply seeking to connect with the living and have no intention of frightening or harming the resident of the home.  Laying down a few ground rules about where it can and cannot go in the house and how it should or should not behave can solve most problems.  It's kinda like...if you don't tell me, I don't know I'm doing anything wrong.  The ghost may think "oh heck....she didn't like that when I slammed the closet door.  Guess I won't do that again!" LOL

You should always approach the spirit peacefully and politely at first.  Give it the option to comply and if the spirit continues to act out and the unwanted activities do not stop, then you may have to go to the next step.

Following these steps may help in your FIRST contact with the ghost.

1.  Acknowledge the presence of the spirit and let it know you are open to communication.
2.  Don't yell and don't threaten the spirit-at least not yet.
3.  Reassure the spirit it is not being ignored but you are having trouble understanding its attempts at  
communication.
4.  Let the spirit know that you need clearer communication such as knocking, rapping or turning the lights on and off.
5.  Clearly and gently explain the family's response to its activities.
6.  State boundaries and ask that the spirit respect them.
7.  Extend the desire to help, but explain that the spirit must clearly communicate its needs.
8.  Set ground rules for interaction and explain the consequences of breaking these rules.
9.  Do not make idle threats.  Be willing to enforce the consequences if the spirit breaks the rules.

The most important part about the first contact is acknowledging the spirit is a real and present being and you are not trying to ignore it, you are just trying to understand what it is the spirit wants.

I can tell you from a personal experience, this can and does work!!!  Again, this is not all the time, but it is a good place to start.  Good luck.

HAUNTED MCPIKE MANSION EVP'S

Links to this post
I'm not going to write a lot about the McPike Mansion because last week I wrote a book!!!LOL  Below are some of the EVP's we collected in the cellar of the mansion.  These are not the BEST EVP's I have ever gotten but they are good.  One of my recorders messed up so I could not get all my EVP's downloaded.  The ones in the video are a little hard to hear so you may want to use external speakers or a headset to listen to them.

Like I said last week, McPike Mansion did not disappoint me in any way!!!  Voices, cold spots, touching, footsteps and tons more.  If you are ever up in Alton, Illinois be sure and check it out. Alton is a wonderful haunted town!  There are soooo many things to do here related to the paranormal I can't wait to go back and get into something else. lol

Enjoy the video....
 


Also, get ready!  I am working on Ghost Hunters Bloopers!!!!  And yes....yours truly is in some of them.

PINK OUIJA BOARD FOR GIRLS 8 AND UP. IS THIS A GOOD IDEA???

Links to this post
Sorry, I had heard about a Ouija Board that Hasbro had started making for children.  I thought it was a joke but here it is at Toys R Us!  I am not going to get on my "soap box" about this, but I DO want to express my concern that this is NOT a good idea for children.  Heck...it's not a good idea for adults in my book.  But I felt the need to share this with you because with all the TV Shows about the paranormal now, it makes it VERY EXCITING for children to become interested in trying different ways to communicate with spirits just like they see on TV.  Please folks....just like to you talk to your children about drugs and drinking.......I know it sounds funny...but talk to them about the things they are seeing on TV.  Let them know that it is VERY DANGEROUS to them and to the people around them if they do not know what they are doing when trying to communicate with the dead. 

Now, please I'm not saying it has to be a "big production" talk....just a few simple facts and let them know it is NOT a game and they shouldn't try to communicate with spirits unless they are with a professional. 

Here is a related post.  So, email me, make a comment here, I would love to know your thoughts on this.

HAUNTED MCPIKE MANSION-AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!!

Links to this post
OMG!!!  I am soooo glad to be back with you guys!!!!  These last couple of weeks have been CRAZY busy for me so thank you guys for hanging in there!!!  I have soooo much to tell you.....so I'm not going to waste anymore time and get going...

First, between the Ghost Conference in Alton, the overnight in the VERY HAUNTED MCPIKE MANSION, staying with a friend who has paranormal activity in her apartment, and experiencing a phone app that was crazy.....I am ALMOST(but not yet) "GHOSTED OUT"!!!!!( I just made that word up, so know need to look it up)

I want to start out by telling you about something that happened at the American Ghost Society Conference that just goes to shows......ALWAYS expect the UNEXPECTED when you are a ghost hunter. A couple years ago, my good friend and founder of White Dog Paranormal, Michele Pellegrino and her nephew, Anthony Pellegrino went to the AGS Conference.  At the conference, they offer different tours to show you haunted places in the area.  Michele and Anthony took a tour that I did not.  I'm sorry, but I forget the name of the place but it was an old cemetery in Decatur, Illinois.  Just as any ghost hunter would do, Michele started taking photos at the cemetery.  She noticed an older gentlemen that started to walk across the burial grounds.  Without thinking twice.....Michele snapped a picture of the man.

Anthony, Becky and Michele.
No comments.  We were cold and tired!!!
Later, when she was reviewing her photos, she noticed something she couldn't believe!!!  Behind the older man, there was a dark shadow that seemed to be ATTACHED to him!!!!!!!!! Michele showed me the photo and was REALLY torn as to whether or not to tell the man about what she had captured in her picture..........if she tells him....will it "scare" him........will he think it is the "Grim Reaper" or did she just keep it to herself???  Long story short......she made a decision NOT to tell him about it and I totally agreed with her decision.
Now, fast forward two years from then to now.......the AGS Conference in Alton, Illinois.  We are sitting in on one of the classes with Troy Taylor, along with a panel of guest of paranormal investigators and mediums, etc.  Michele raises her hand and ask a question about "shadow people"........ especially ones that seem to ATTACH themselves to people.  Rosemary Guiley, an expert on ghosts and spirits, proceeded to give her opinion on why "shadow people" are here and why they may become attached to someone. FYI she says...."it's not always a bad thing".

Anyway, later that afternoon.....we sat in on another class.  And can I just add.....we DID not sit in the same seats as before.  The room probably held 200-250 people.  Michele is sitting on one side of me and Anthony on the other.  As we are listening to the speaker....Anthony leans over and taps me on the shoulder.  I quietly bend down to hear him and he whispers......"look behind you........the guy that Michele took that picture of with the shadow is sitting RIGHT BEHIND HER"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I kinda of look at Anthony like.....NO WAY.....what are the chances of that???????????  But trying to be sneaky....I glanced over my shoulder and almost fell out of my chair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  IT WAS HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Of all the people he sits RIGHT BEHIND MICHELE!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And let me be clear.......other than taking a picture of the man.....Michele does not know this man....nor has even seen him since the moment she took the picture.  

Well..............one thing you need to know about me is ........I get EXCITED easily!!!!!  It was all I could do not to stand up and yell......."Michele......look at that GUY seating right behind you 
OMG"!!!!!

 Ok...take a DEEP BREATH and be COOL about this Beck....and tell Michele to look behind her.  So, I tapped Michele on the shoulder...and said "don't look now (isn't that what we always say when we WANT people to LOOK.LOL) but I am going to point to something over your shoulder and you look behind you at the man sitting in the chair".  She nods....and looks over her shoulder.....just like me and Anthony SHE CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Her jaw dropped !!!  So as we all sat there....not hearing a WORD the speaker was saying...all the sudden we hear the applause and realize the class is over.  As we stand up and start to walk between the isles.....SOMEONE says...."excuse me..........are you the lady that took the picture of the older man with a shadow figure following him"? I almost choked as did Michele. She was so startled at the question she just stood there for a minute then said "yes, that was me". The young man (I'm guessing around 20) said "can you tell me WHO it was"?  DID HE REALLY JUST ASK THAT QUESTION WITH THE OLDER MAN STANDING RIGHT BESIDE HIM????  How does Michele handle this?  She looks at the older man and back at the younger man and hesitates.......but then says " do you REALLY want to know......it was him" and she pointed at the older gentlemen.  OMG!  Now what???  Would this man freak out....would it scare him.....how was he going to react!!!  But much to our surprise........the young man says......"that EXPLAINS it!  Ever since we went to that cemetery bad things have been happening to us"!  He said he was the man's grandson and was with him that night in the cemetery.  The older man did not seem to be to "phased" by the news that it was HIM in the picture.  His grandson went on to say that they had been in bad car wrecks, had a couple of big fires, been sick, family problems and on and on.  And that they felt something had followed his grandfather home from there.   Michele offered to show him the picture if he wanted to see it.  Of course, he said yes.
Photo by Michele Pellegrino.
Later that evening, Michele showed him the picture and they exchanged information to keep in touch.  Now....you tell me....WHAT ARE THE ODDS this man.....first would be at the SAME conference.....TWO YEARS LATER......at a DIFFERENT location....KNOW that Michele's question MIGHT pertain to him...........and then not knowing anything about Michele SIT right behind her in a room full of people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AMAZING!!!!

I do want to say that Michele has a REAL gift with the paranormal.  She is an excellent investigator and really has a great ability for communicating with the spirits.  I believe she was meant to take that picture and I also believe that she was meant to be at THAT conference to cross paths with that gentlemen and to offer him some kind of explanation for his misfortune.  I hope this man is able to "shake" his bad luck and I know Michele is the perfect person to help him if she can.

Ok........now, because I talked soooo long above, I will cut my story on the McPike Mansion investigation short.  Let me just say.............it was just like in the SCARY MOVIES.  As we started to walk around the back of the Mansion, to where the old well and two unknown graves where.......all the sudden the wind starts BLOWING really HARD.......the trees start to bend and.......then comes the lightening and thunder.  What the heck?  It was suppose to be a very clear night.  Anyway, as the owner, Sharyn Luedke hurries everyone into the cellar and begins telling us about the history of the place.  There was about 20 people at first for about an hour and half then only the professional investigators stayed for to do a real investigation....about 6 of us total.
The old well at the back of the McPike Mansion
Two graves at the back of the house that
know one really knows who they are.  They
are believed to be that of  two young children

Without getting to detailed (see this is what happens when I don't get to really post good weekly...I talk to much.lol) I will tell you....we had some pretty amazing personal experiences.  I felt completely surrounded by a BLACK MASS in a totally pitch black room but I could STILL see this darkness...so much so that I was leaned back in my chair as far as I could gripping to the sides of my chair because it seemed like SOMETHING or SOMEONE was standing RIGHT over me up in my face....  I began saying "please....just back up a little bit so that I can catch my breath".  And sure enough...it all of the sudden went away.  Michele and Anthony also experienced being touched.  We would all suddenly feel "CHILLS" and within minutes.....it would be gone.  We also got some AMAZING EVP's that indicates that the spirits that haunt the McPike Mansion are intelligent as they were answering DIRECT questions.  Also, we heard footsteps in the hallway, experienced the laser grids being turned off when asked, hearing voices BUT the MOST IMPRESSIVE thing I think I witnessed was our communication with the K-2 meters.  

We all were sitting on one end of the cellar with the equipment and camera's facing the opposite end.  I would say around 1:30 am we started getting hits on the K-2's.  What that means is when a spirit is around the K-2 will light up five little colored lights as a way of communicating.  One light may light up and no others.....and sometimes.....all five lights light up at the same time.  We started asking questions and asking the spirits to light up the K2 so that we might be able to communicate with them.  

Now, here's the BEST part......we had two K2 meters. One sitting on the floor by a chair and other I would guess about 10-15 ft from there.  BOTH the K2's were responding EXACTLY THE SAME!!!! I mean if one lite up three lights at the VERY SAME TIME the other one would light up 3 lights! They were so in unison it blew my mind!  I have been investigating for years and years and have NEVER seen this happen before!!  And it just wasn't once or twice....it was a lot!!!!  They would turn on at the exact same time and turn off at the exact same time and were in different locations!!!!  I have used the K2 for years and have been able to get communication on more than one but NEVER at the exact same time.  AMAZING!!!!  And yes....it was caught on video.

Ok...below I have posted some of the pictures from that night. There are so many EVP's to share with you guys, I am still cropping them after hours and hours of investigating.  I hope to have them completed for next weeks post along with an experience we had with a new app for your phone.  I can tell you.....I WAS TOTALLY CREEPED OUT by it!!!

Anyway, that's it for tonight....hope you guys had a great 4th of July and see you next week.  Don't forget to follow me on Becks Ghost Hunters Facebook page as I post all kinds of thing there all the time. :)
