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.




Only two more days!!!!! YEAH!!!!  Hope you are having a great Halloween week.  I know I am!

Ok...calm down Beck....back to business.  LOL  Today I thought I would pick the top 10 Most Haunted Places in the world.  These are MY choices.  I only choose places that I have read exclusively about and feel that I have somewhat a little bit of knowledge of the paranormal history at these places.  These are places that I know someone that has actually been there or that I have just studied for years on.

I am not going into great detail on my choices, but I have posted a link so that you could find out some additional information if you like.  Most of these places are, of course, on my BUCKET LIST to do.....and stay with me.....I WILL visit all the places listed below!  If you guys have visited ANY of these places PLEASE PLEASE write and let me know.
