About Me

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.

Ghost box? Spirit box? Franks box? What the heck are these?  Well....if you don't have one....... you need one!!!  This was one of my BIG purchases as a ghost hunter.  I went to a convention where April Slaughter shared a video of herself  communicating with her Grandfather and that was it!!!  Had to have one!!!  Her session talking to her Grandfather was soooo moving for me that tears were just running down my face.  I want to be able to communicate with my Grandfather that way, I thought.

A ghost box/spirit box/Franks box are devices that use white noise to allow spirits to communicate in "real time" with us.  White-noise generators are said to give  the spirits something to work with, perhaps the raw material out of which to build the sounds later discovered on the recordings.  It produces random voltage to create white noise from an AM tuner, which is then amplified, fed into an echo chamber, and recorded.  Fans of the Spirit box say it allows ghost to pull the words they want to use from the broadcast in order to string together a message that can be heard.  This is a TRUE way to directly connect and speak with the Other Side!  Truly an amazing device!  I will say it does take a little while to listen "through" the white noise before you actually start hearing the words the spirits want you to hear.   But it doesn't take long to adjust to the White noise an then the messages are loud and clear.  This offers a two-way communication with spirits of the departed.

The ongoing work using EVP's is one of the most exciting in the field of paranormal.  You don't need a lot of fancy equipment to do your investigations and analysis your results.  Frank Sumption created the original Ghost box. Thank you Frank.  You can visit his Yahoo Group at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/evp-itc/,  to familiarize yourself with the whole ghost-box concept.  Keyport Paranormal (www.keyportparanormal.com) has information on how to make your own ghost box, with schematics.  You can make one using a AM Radio Shack radio...well if  you are "techie" enough.  I'm not!!

So, I want to tell you a short story about one of my first experiences with the Frank Box.   Well, just like any ghost hunter.....when you order a new piece of equipment you CAN'T WAIT for the mail or UPS driver to pull up in front of your house and hand you a little brown package!  I wanted to just grab the driver and give him a big hug and kiss and say THANK YOU THANK YOU when he asked me to "sign here".  But being in HR, I thought oh BAD idea Beck....he could file charges on you for sexual harassment!  LOL  Anyway, you get the level of excitement I was feeling especially after seeing how it worked and watching April's experience.

I went out to a local bridge that without a doubt is very haunted.  I'm sure you have heard me talk about the Old Alton Bridge(Goatmans bridge).  It is the story the Bio Channel did a segment on.  Anyway, I took my new Frank's Box and set it in the middle of a group of people that had gone on the  hunt with me.  Anyway, I was walking around taking pics of the group not really paying any attention to the session going on.....when one of the members ask "is there anyway here you want to talk to?" and VERY CLEARLY a voice said "BECKY".  I stopped DEAD in my tracks and said "Did that just say BECKY????" and everyone in the group started shouting "Becky someone wants to talk to you".  I couldn't believe it!!!  Did this BOX really work?  Were we REALY able to communicate with the DEAD??? And if so.......WHO the heck knew MY NAME?????

I sat down in the center of the circle right next to the Franks Box and said "ok....I'm here and you know who I am but I don't know WHO you are???"  The same voice said "STEVE".  Long story short...for the rest of the night I talked with a spirit named STEVE(very bad spirit), who was reasonable for killing and  hanging of a black goat farmer named Oscar Washborn.  He was a Master Dragon in the KKK.  He had no remorse for what terrible crimes he had committed!  NONE!!!!  He is also the only spirit that has EVER physically touched me! He GRABBED my leg very firmly as I was telling him I knew what he had done and and how I also knew he had rapped and brutally murdered a school teacher in Denton County.    He was finally arrested for that crime and spent the rest of his years in prison.  Guess he didn't like that I was bringing that stuff up. We also communicated with Oscar(just a sweetheart, the blackman who was hung from the bridge) and a lady named Eleanor(a lady that used to live in the little town where the bridge is or was located).IT WAS AN AMAZING SESSION!!!  It was like sitting around a table talking to spirits.  Creepy.....YOU BET!!!!!!

I do want to give you a bit of warning.... I feel that a "protection player" should be considered when using the Frank's Box.  Be sure to say one BEFORE and AFTER your session.  You COULD call in spirits that you don't really want....as I found out.
