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.



Well, lets see......they float around at night...........they make SPOOKY loud sounds........they can throw and break things........they can touch you......oh and let's not forget the biggie.................THEIR DEAD!!!!!!  Nope...........nothing to be afraid of here!!!!!

The number ONE question I get asked most often is "aren't you afraid of ghosts?"  My answer is no.  That doesn't mean that I don't get scared from time to time, but afraid of the GHOSTS themselves......no not really.   The fact that ghost hunters are drawn to a haunted location is likely to suggest that they are not afraid in the first place.  People react to fear in different ways.....I have had people stop ghost hunting because the fear itself has overcome THE QUEST to find out what is going on in a location.  There has been many times where ghost hunters have screamed, wept or have run in fear from a location because they are just to afraid!  It's easy for us to rationalize everything and say that "ghosts can't hurt us" or that "there's nothing to be afraid of" but sometimes the energy of the location may affect us in a way that we could not have imagined.  The ability to master one's own fear is the mark of an experienced investigator.  However, sometimes it is totally appropriate........and even necessary......to get out!!!

Paranormal activity can range from harmless residual haunting to potentially harmful poltergeists and malevolent entities.  You have to be prepared  for both.  Protecting ones self is just one of the things that you should do if you are going to investigate the paranormal or the unknown.  Some prepare by saying a simple protection prayer before and after an investigation.  I, for one, am a STRONG believer in the protection prayer.  A protection prayer is simply a prayer asking for protection from anything that might harm them during the hunt and from entities that might become attached to them and decide to follow them home.  Ghost hunting is know different from anything thing else.....athletes put on protective uniforms with pads..........we buckle our seat belts when we are in the car......we wear helmets when we ride bikes........all these things PROTECT US!!!

So, should you be afraid of ghosts???  Let me put it this way.....there is always an element of fear, whether it's fear of the unknown, fear of what is not seen, fear that something may hurt us......or fear of ghosts.....we should look at it each situation with caution and know OUR own limits and also be smart enough to know when you need to call for help or get someone with more experience in a particular field, to assist you.  Bottom line for me........YES in certain situations ghosts can hurt you and you should be afraid BUT these situations are very rare.  For me, I know that there are RISK..... and things to be afraid of everyday........ just like when I drive to work.........so..........how do I handle it...........I DRIVE to work........WITH MY SEAT BELT ON!!!!  :))))  Happy hunting everyone!!!!

Who ya' gona' call?????
