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.



It's located outside of town....at the end of a deserted gravel road......watch for the over hanging trees....because it makes it very dark and creepy at night....watch where you step because there are lots of unmarked graves and you could fall through one....... and if you do...... then the DEAD will grab you and NEVER let you go!!!! Many people have been murdered here, death by black rituals, scarifies,  a lady in white is seen quite often floating between the graves.  Loud screams can be heard late at night.  And there is even one grave that someone was "buried alive" in!!!

We all have one......a cemetery with the reputation of hauntings and spirits that have been passed down from generation to generation. What is the fascination with cemeteries? Is this really a place  spirits walk and have a real connection? Are they just passing through, so to speak, using the wooded graveyard as a way to go between the "now" world and the "next"?  For whatever the reason, cemeteries for me, make an awesome place to investigate.  They are a personal favorite of mine.

Now, with that said let me tell you that most enthusiast would agree that a place becomes haunted AFTER a traumatic event or unexpected death occurs at a location.  History is filled with stories of houses that become haunted after a murder or after a horrible event occurs that echoes over the decades as a haunting.  So, a cemetery is usually the final resting place of the physical body NOT were the person died. So, why would we be sitting in a place where no tragic event happened looking for ghosts?  Because it's CREEPY of course!!!  Well, the truth is, cemeteries are not the first choice for paranormal activity among ghost hunters.  They feel because it is only a "holding place" for the physical body.... it is not the place where the person died or the site of a tragic event.  Spirits should be sought in other locations of such events first.

Graveyard ghosts seem to have a few things in common.  The spirits seem to be connected to the burial grounds because of events that occurred AFTER their deaths, not before. It has also been said that these spirits that remain in the cemetery are seeking eternal rest that eludes them at the spot where their physical bodies are currently found.  I have investigated many cemeteries over the years, and without a doubt, I do feel that there are spirits here.  I love the peaceful feeling cemeteries have. To me, they seem to bring comfort in some weird way that I like.  I love looking at the old tombstones and even on some, seeing a picture of the person.  BUT, I will say, that I have been to a couple of cemeteries.....that I got a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT feeling.  One of uneasiness, darkness, creepy and yes...just plain scary where I just couldn't shake that feeling that someone or something was watching me at all times and even at times, felt VERY unwanted!!! But I'm weird anyway, so those experiences never detoured me from sitting in a cemetery all night looking for more ghosts. LOL

However you see or feel about graveyards, the one thing I think we can ALL agree on is....that it is a place to be respected!!!  Our family and friends are here and we should NEVER forget that.

I just returned from Decatur, Ill from the Annual American Ghost Hunters Conference and I will tell you I hope to have posted by this weekend some amazing EVP's along with some very compelling video in a cemetery in Decatur that we just came across but found to be very interesting!!!!

Below are some of my favorite pics I have taken in graveyards.  Lots of orbs and the headstone of the crying angel is BY FAR the most moving headstone I have ever seen!  I LOVE IT!!!  Stay tuned this weekend for some great stuff from the conference.  I don't think you will be disappointed!!
