About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I 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 to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. 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.

Cemeteries-One of my favorite places

Cemeteries are one of my favorite places to "hang out".   They are creepy, scary and sometimes very beautiful.  Cemeteries seem to offer the ghost hunter an excellent chance for strange phenomena and spirit photos, perhaps because of the theory involving "spirit portals" and "doorways" in many burial grounds.  Cemeteries with unmarked graves, where desecration has taken place or where tragic events have occurred often become haunted.  A search through historical records can often point a researcher to a haunted graveyard.  YEAH!!!

One thing I have to be sure and bring up is, be sure to check into your state and local laws about entering cemeteries after dark. Be sure that you are not breaking any laws.  Most law enforcement are pretty nice if they "catch" you in a cemetery at night, as long as they see you are being respectful and not bothering anything or ANYONE.

A few things you should remember when investigating a cemetery:

1.  Never go alone.  Make sure you have someone with you in case of emergency. 
2.  Get permission if possible.  This only makes things better for everyone.
3. As with any investigation, arrive at the scene with skepticism and make an effort to find a natural explanation for any phenomena that occurs.
4.  Make Notes!  Big important part of your investigation is to make notes of time, date, temp and weather conditions.  They could make a difference when determining your conclusion.
5.  Finally, always but always be respectful to the dead and remember that everyone that is in that cemetery was someones loved one, maybe even yours. Always leave it just as you found it.  And just me, I always thank my HOST for a great evening. :)

Some of my favorite and best photos are of cemeteries, both at night and durning the day.  So, pack your equipment and if your in Texas....your water....and plan a date with a cemetery.  I will be waiting to see your pics and here your stories.
