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.

WAS THAT A SIGN FROM THE BEYOND OR WAS I JUST SEEING THINGS???

Now, you may be asking yourself what is the difference between "receiving a sign" and last weeks topic of  "contacting a spirit"?  Isn't it the same? NO. In my opinion, not at all.

When YOU are asking for a sign FROM a spirit it is about YOU and what you want.  When a spirit is GIVING YOU a message, it is about THEM and what THEY want you to know.  I know sometimes, the loss is so great that we automatically want a sign from our loved ones.  So, we start ASKING for signs, but here's the deal....It's not always up to YOU on WHEN you get a message from a spirit.  In other words, your loved one has to FEEL that you ARE ready.  If not, receiving a message could create a greater longing or deeper depression on your side.  I'm going to put like this (in Becky Terms)..... you are driving in your car.......and you are in a hurry......you come to a cross roads and a traffic cops gives you the signal to stop........you really don't want to stop or slow down because you are running late.....but you do anyway.(because that's what all good drivers do, right?  No defensive driving courses for us. LOL)  It seems like you are WAITING AND WAITING  forever for the cop to give you the go-ahead to continue.  And what is HE doing....he sees you.... BUT he doesn't let you go through because of other cars crossing the intersection(your not ready)....so he is protecting you from harm that could cause you pain and suffering if you were to cross to early. Right?  He is waiting until HE thinks it is safe for YOU to cross.  Then he motions for you to come on through, and you proceed safety.  Because YOU waited for HIM to give YOU a sign, you are able to continue FORWARD without any accidents. He kept you safe.  Ok.  Did that make ANY sense to you? LOL.  The point is......You have to be in a really good place in your heart and open to receiving a sign or message from a spirit and SOMETIMES not always, the spirit will KNOW when you are ready.... not you.

While nearly everything that the spirits do for us is done anonymously, without our ever even realizing that we've had their help (sometimes they do want us to know though). Because most of us are focused on what is right in front of us,today, right now, we just aren't used to thinking about the spirit world, so to be honest, I don't think the spirits have an easy job getting our attention.   In addition to any task or conversation we may be presently absorbed in physically, we're also usually occupied mentally with our thoughts running back and forth over the things we've done and things we need to do.  What options does a spirit have to get our attention?

Well, mainly, they tend to do pretty obvious things, sometime not so subtle.  They make loud noises, turn lights off and on, maybe turn water on in the sink, knock things over, tilt pictures at an angle, and sometimes send them flying through the air.  On occasion, they even touch us.

But each of us has another way that we most commonly get their messages, and that's our intuition.  That's when we get a "hunch" or we say, "I just had a feeling" or "Something just told me..."  Sometimes we get a feeling of anxiety, and it could be a warning, telling us to be careful or not to do something that could result in our getting hurt or even killed.  How often have you heard someone say, "I don't know....it was just a feeling that something wasn't right"....and lets just say....when they went outside something had happened to their spouse, family or friends....but because they came out just in time, it saved their lives.  Those are signs, maybe not as obvious as loud noises, etc but still signs.

Occasionally, you still may receive a clear and direct communication when you are in a relaxed, sub or semi-consicious state, or even a dream ( My favorite).  Sometimes, not always, it can be a message of extreme importance.  Many times, people question "was that just a dream or did I really see them"?  YES you did.  What is the difference between a "dream" and a "visit"?  A dream is usually long, rambling, convoluted, scenes change often, have people in them you don't even know, and don't make sense...you feel a sense of nothing when awakening.  A visit will usually be brief and to the point.  Sometimes, a spirit may speak without a single a word - all the meaning is conveyed just by their presence.  You may awaken feeling grateful, happy, sometimes even sad...but you feel like you have just spoken face to face with the person.

Obviously we don't have to be asleep to get a message from a spirit.....where there's a will...there's a way.  Spirits contact us through what we call "synchronicity"  that is arranging certain happenings or meetings in such a way that we see it as an AMAZING coincidence.  Maybe you see your Moms favorite flower on her birthday, maybe you find a long lost wallet of your husbands on your anniversary, maybe you find your "soul mate"(yes, you can have more than one) in such a way that normally your paths would have NEVER crossed.....like two people that leave in different cities, but SOMEWAY their paths cross and it's love at first sight!!!  Coincidence or help from beyond??? You tell me....

Everyone has spirits around them to help them and comfort them.  Everyone has a choice.....you can believe or not believe......you can choose whether or not you want to look into your spiritual connections....ask for signs because you aren't afraid.... and are open to embrace them.  Synchronicities (happenings) are NOT coincidental.  Be delighted when you see these things.....smile....embrace them.....believe them.  Trust that you know the difference between coincidental and help from the Other Side.

It's so simple.  People are always looking for more complicated signs, like whats in the movies.  That's NOT where you should be looking.  It's not impossible, but it's pretty rare that there will be a BIG DRAMATIC show.  However, the LITTLE signs, the tiny little signs that are happening all the time around us...... that keeps us on the RIGHT track and moving FORWARD are the ones you notice the most!!!  Signs are signs....whether big or small......I believe we ALL have help from the Other Side.... we just have to SEE IT and BELIEVE IT!!!
