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.

HAUNTED HOUSES-WHAT TO DO IF A GHOST CALLS YOUR HOUSE HOME?


You hear strange sounds in the night, even though you’re home alone.  You smell pipe tobacco in an empty room, but no one smokes.  A door slams shut by itself, even though you are alone and there is no breeze.  Are there logical explanations? Maybe……maybe not.


The Amityville  Horror House-One of the MOST famous haunted houses of all.
Living in a haunted house can be terrifying, but however, most spirits are friendly and don’t mean to scare us.  It’s just that has long as we can remember, we have been told ghosts are bad, evil and to be afraid of them.  The best way to deal with a spirit that calls YOUR house home….is to show no fear and deal with spirits in a logical, calm, and assertive manner.  Knowing not only what type of ghost or spirit you’re dealing with, but also the type of haunting you may be experiencing, will help alleviate your fear.  In “Becky terms” it’s like having a fever, runny nose and cough…once you figure out if you have a COLD or if it’s the FLU, once you have figured it out you know HOW to treat it.

 If strange things are starting to go on in your home, and that “six sense” that I talk about starts to KICK IN really heavy…. that those footsteps, electrical problems, unexplained noises, doors opening and closing, objects being moved, missing objects, unexplained smells or odors, voices, cold spots, feeling of being watched, animals behaving strangely, moving objects, shadows, physical attacks or being touched, apparitions, unexplained writing on walls or mirrors ALL these things could be signs that your house is haunted. 

As you can see, there are many possibilities when it comes to the symptoms of a haunted house, with paranormal activity being experienced.  Look for the LOGICAL explanation to any activity first!!!  It’s normal to be scared or shaken up by these events.  Try to remain calm and take a proactive stance in an effort to determine the cause of any activity.

There are many TV shows on how to get rid of a ghost, some I agree with and some I don’t.  Each situation is different. But here are a few ideas that may help you get rid of a ghost or spirit (if that’s what you want to do). After my last post on Haunted Dolls I’m not too sure that some people seek out spirits to live with.   I am NOT saying that these will solve your problem, but they have worked for ME in the past, as I have experienced some hauntings in my home as well.  As with anything, if you are uncomfortable in ANY way, or do not want to do any of the following suggestions, then call for HELP.  Get in touch with a Paranormal Group or a clergy.

TALK TO THE SPIRIT.  Tell them you don’t want them there and that this is YOUR home now and they have to leave.  As simple as this sounds, talking to the ghost is generally the easiest way either to have the ghost leave or at least reach some type of compromise to cohabitate. It is the FIRST thing I would recommend. 

DO NOT SHOW FEAR.  I know, easy for me to say, right?  I completely understand!!!  But some types of ghosts feed off your fear and become stronger and more powerful.  Try to stay calm if you can.

SAGE YOUR HOME.  You can burn sage incense or dried sage(some say in every room at the SAME time, but I don’t think that is necessary) but sage each room and repeat this simple house blessing in every room:

Please bless this house and fill it with only positive energy, happiness, love and peace.  Anyone who enters this space can only be someone who is filled with love and happiness.  Any negative energy or beings can no longer reside with these walls, and they are to leave and are forbidden to enter this home again.  This room is hereby blessed and filled with only love, peace and happiness.

Don’t forget your attics and basements.

PRAY.   Pray to whomever or whatever you believe in.  The power of Prayer is VERY POWERFUL!!!

Ok.  I have talked WAY too much on this subject and it is one of those subjects I may have to have different parts to…..like part 1, part 2, etc.  There is sooo much to talk about here.

I have many, many readers who have experienced living in a haunted home.  And to this day, it has left a LASTING impression on their lives…..be it a GOOD impression or something they WISH they could forget.  Please email me with your stories….Have a great week you guys!
