About Me

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.

Are children and pets more sensitive to ghosts?

So have you ever just been sitting in a dark room, maybe just relaxing..... watching TV..... and your dog is laying on your lap and your just having a great evening when all of the sudden...... your dog looks up (seeming to you at nothing) and then jumps up and starts barking?  What is he barking at???  What does he see???  What does he hear???  uuummmm ??????

Dogs are sensitive to the spirit world. How they behave depends on the dog's relationship to the spirit. If it is the ghost of their departed owner or another loved one, a dog will often see them and may react with their usual greeting ritual, even curling up at or about the spirit's "feet" or "lap". If the ghost is a stranger, especially one with negative energy, a dog may react by focusing on "empty air",growling and having their hair stand on end, or by cringing in abject fear, even to the point of being unwilling to ever enter that room or area again.

Dogs have amazingly sensitive senses of smell and of hearing, way beyond typical human capacity. Isn't there a possibility that dogs will respond to stimuli that escape us completely? In whatever way dogs might actually experience this. 

And what about children?  Are their "imaginary friends" really...... imaginary???  This is a sensitive subject as some children do have great imaginations and then some children......well are "gifted" and can actually relate to spirits.  Now, by know means does this mean EVERY child that talks to someone sitting across from them at their little table having cookies and tea are ghosts.  BUT.....in some circumstances, they really may see someone or something.  So, here's the deal....Children SEE what they SEE and HEAR what they HEAR.  When a child is young, they have not learned to rash analyze things yet.  We as adults on the other hand, try to find an explanation for everything.  If the door moves by itself.....it must be the wind....if a plate falls off a table....you must not have set it on the table very well.....if you see a dark shadow move behind you......it must have just been your imagination.  See, that's just what we do because as we grow up this is what we are taught.  But as children....we have not learned that capability yet.  Children are VERY open-minded to everything! Spirits or ghosts know this.  So when they are trying to  communicate or let it be known they are present....they will try and communicate with children or pets.  This doesn't mean that your child has "special" powers to communicate with the dead nor does it mean anything other than your child is just being a kid and experiencing things in life as he/she sees it.  Now, each situation is different and you as a parent have to figure out........is it just Katlin.....the imaginary friend.....or is it Katlin that died in the house years ago?  And you as the parent will also have to decide how to handle this.....or if you need to do anything at all.

Hope this makes sense.  I tried to talk about this subject in a way the normal, everyday person could understand it.  haha  Listen, I need all the normal, everyday person explanations I can get!  LOL
