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 37 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 explainable 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.


True Story-Paranormal activity in my home!!

Hi everybody....wanted to share a story with you tonight that I thought would relate to last weeks topic...are children and pets more sensitive to ghosts.  So, I made the adjustment of topics in my UPCOMING EVENTS/TOPIC page.

One day after I had been investigating the Old Alton Bridge, I was on the phone the next night and had one of the most eerie experiences I think I have ever had!  Did a spirit follow me home? Well, something SURE did!!!

When we were investigating the bridge I had been using all kinds of different equipment.  And one piece of equipment I was using was a motion detector.  The way MY motion detector works is... it  is battery operated and has NO on and off buttons or switches.  It is activated(turned on and off) ONLY by the remote.  It has a sensor in the center that, when activated, has an area that flares out like this <  so that if anything breaks the beam in this area a very loud alarm will go off.

I had laid the motion detector on my dresser, on its side so that the beam(if activated) would be pointing toward my celling.  I have a equipment bag that I put all my equipment in and had just taken the motion detector out because I was going to put it in another bag that I had not taken.  Well, it was late, so I just sat the motion detector on my dresser and put my equipment bag with the REMOTE to the motion detector in it, in the closet and shut the closet door.

So, here's where it gets good!!! I was laying in my bed, talking on the phone with one of my friends.  My two, sweet little dogs...Holly and Tanner were laying on the foot of my bed with me as they do every night.  Both of them were fast asleep when all of the sudden Holly raised her head, perked her ears and walked over to the edge of the bed and started looking straight up at the ceiling.  She kept tilting her head back and forth as like she was trying to figure out what she was looking at.  uuummmm I had NEVER seen her do this before.  At the same time, my other little dog, Tanner did the exact same thing!!!  As I lay there on the bed.... I remember looking at them..... looking up at the ceiling and thinking to myself.....that is strange.......what are they looking at???  There is nothing there and certainly nothing up in the ceiling!!

All of the sudden.....the alarm starts blaring!!!!! What the heck?????? I am stunned!!!!!!  How in the world could that be going off????  It wasn't even activated!!!!!  There is no way that alarm should have been going off!!!!!!  My friend, on the phone, ask me "what is that????"  "It is soooo loud"!!!!  I said, it's my alarm.  I will have to call you back so I can turn it off.  By now, the dogs are barking wildly.

I get up and try to find the remote, forgetting that I had put it in the closet.  I am soooo confused at this point....I just don't know what to think!!!  I finally remember the remote is in the bottom of my bag in the closet which is EVEN MORE CONFUSING to me as how this alarm could be set!  Sure enough, I get my bag out of the closet and have to dig to the bottom underneath a lot of other equipment just to find the remote.  I press the button on the remote and finally get the motion detector to go off.  It was crazy, the dogs didn't act scared, after all that loud noise, they had been barking starring at the ceiling but as soon as the motion detector went off, both of them went back to the foot of the bed and laid back down, just like nothing ever happen.  REALLY????
This is the actual remote.  It is the ONLY way to
turn this device on and off.  The black remote
is what I had put in my closet.
This is the actual motion detector.  This is how it
was laying the night it went off.  You can see the sensor
is in the middle of the device facing the ceiling and don't
forget the only way to activate it or turn it on was with the remote.

I just could not figure out ANY explanation for this no matter how far I reached........  It had brand new batteries, so that couldn't be it....nothing could have fallen on the remote because it was in the bottom of my bag in my closet, so that couldn't be it.......a bug couldn't have flown through the sensor area because it WAS NOT ON....NOT ACTIVATED, so that couldn't be it....... and what about the dogs!!!!!  They have never acted like that before!!!!  My conclusion.....it had to be that someone or something had followed me home!  Lets just say.... for the rest of the night......the motion detector was in the closet.....WITHOUT the batteries!!!  haha

So, do I think pets and ghost are more sensitive?  YES.  I believe my dogs saw something....something that was in the room with us long before I ever knew it.  And with the alarm going off... you decide.... :)
