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.


Trigger objects-Ghostly invitations....

Have you ever had something that you just LOVED... a favorite glass, a favorite book, a favorite shirt...something that meant something to YOU but might not have meant anything to anyone else?  Of course you have.  We all have things that we cherish and don't want to give up.  These are Trigger objects.  Trigger objects are items brought into a haunted location in hopes of prompting or triggering a response or even a manifestation from a spirit.

Sometimes, if you do not have a "personal item" from the spirit that you are trying to connect with, you can use something that may be familiar to the spirit.  For example, if you are trying to communicate with a child, you may use a ball or toy.  If you do NOT KNOW who the spirit or what the spirit is, many times you can use a coin.  You may have to use several different coins with different dates on them to try and generate a response.  The different coins can represent different dates or years significant to the location or an event relating to the spirit.

Try using a trigger object to "invite" the spirit into making themselves or itself known.  Try this.... take a trigger object whether it be a toy, special item to the person passed, or if you have no information  about the location or spirit... use a coin.  Place the trigger object in a place that is free of drafts or any outside interference.  Place your object on a piece of paper, draw a circle around it and either sit quietly and ask for a sign of their presence or even better, leave the room completely, undisturbed for several hours and come back and check on the object and see if it has moved at all.

I LOVE trigger objects!!!  When you get a response with a trigger object it is so cool.... and to me, it makes for a very personal experience because the object "means" something to the spirit you have contacted.

This past weekend I went to Jefferson, Tx and stayed at the haunted Jefferson Hotel.  What a GREAT place with LOTS of activity!!!  Again, this is one of those places I can't wait to go back to.  I met soooo many fun people staying at the hotel, all of which I might say....where there for the paranormal experience and our team had a great investigation.  We invited some of the residents to join in our investigation which lead to use getting to go into several rooms we hadn't expected to get into.  I would like to thank EVERYONE for being so nice to us and allowing us to investigate your individual rooms.  What GREAT evidence we have!!!!  I will be posting much MORE about my trip to Jefferson in the next week or two so stay tuned....you won't want to miss it!!!!

Below are some pictures I took inside my room #1 at the Jefferson Hotel.  Before we went to dinner, I placed a ball on a dully on the night stand beside one of the beds in my room.  I made sure that it was out of the way of the air conditioner vent or anything that might make the ball move.  Matter of fact, the A/C was off.  I placed the ball in a "little grove" or notch that was in the night stand.  That way, it could NOT be moved easily or roll off due to uneven floors, drafts.... etc.

Before we went to dinner, I said out loud "if there is truly someone in this room, please move the ball outside of the dully" and left the room and locked the door.  Then we went to dinner.   When we returned..........well...... see for yourselves!!!!!  There it was....the ball on the OUTSIDE of the dully!!!  How cool is that!!!!!!  I was sooooo excited but being the good GHOST HUNTER I am(LOL) I had to try and recreate how this could have happened...right???  And yes, there are times, you HOPE that YOU CAN'T recreate what happened because then.....how fun would that be???  But you have to try if you want to take your research seriously and I DO!!!!  So,  I took a picture, then placed the ball back in it's original place on the dully on the night stand......  jumped up and down all around the night stand and COULD NOT get the ball to move NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT!!!!!

So, trigger objects can be VERY useful in an investigation and to me....can really make a long night.....seem so much more fun and interesting. :)  What do you think...
