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.



Can ghosts be happy?  Huuummmm In my opinion......yes, some can.  One of the reasons a spirit haunts a location is because of a strong emotional tie.  In a residual haunting, there are no emotions.  Just a faint memory(so to speak) that just plays over and over with know interaction with us, the living.  But in an intelligent haunting, that's another story. In an intelligent haunting, I believe some spirits can be happy, even in their current situation of being caught in the middle.....you know....being stuck between the NOW world and heaven  or wherever their FINAL destination may be.

Have you heard of people that are visited by their loved ones that say they were reminded of something they really enjoyed that their loved one used to do?  Picture this......you sitting at your kitchen table, drinking your morning coffee or in my case, my chocolate milk, missing your grandmother and wishing you could just watch her baking cookies like she did so many times....in the kitchen and smell those....oh so good chocolate chip cookies again.  All the sudden, you smell cookies....and you can't help it, it makes YOU smile. Did grandma KNOW you were missing her so she was able to manifest the chocolate chip cookies smell??? I believe she did!!!  Now, do you think grandma is HAPPY about that??? Now have a great BIG SMILE on your face. You better KNOW she is!!!  You kinda' dismiss the smell even though it makes you smile.  You walk over to the cabinet to get out a bowl for cereal when as many times you have opened your cabinet you never really noticed THAT bowl way in the back.  Wait?  Isn't that the bowl grandma used to use when I was little?  So, sure enough, it is a small red bowl that your grandmother used to make your cereal in when you were young.  So, you get it out and use it.  Now, you are really HAPPY  enjoying your morning breakfast "with" grandma making HER very happy to!!!   See, even though our loved ones are gone physically, I think they still are able to "hang around" and be there for us when they need to.  And I don't think they find this some kind of burden, I think it brings them the same kind of happiness that we feel in our hearts.  So, yes....THEY can be happy.
Original photo taken in Decatur, Ill 
I watched these TWO people come down the stairs because they
said they heard a voice.  There are THREE people in this picture???

I added a heat sensor to the picture to make sure I really did see something here!!!  I think whoever was here at the Lincoln Theater in Decatur, Ill is here because they loved this place.  They stay here because it is a place that made them happy.  I was glad they decided to show their self to me. :))))  That made ME very happy. LOL
 Now, I don't think ALL spirits are content with the way things are.  Some are angry, some are sad, and some.....well....they just don't know what has happened to cause their situation.  And make KNOW mistake...I do feel if we can help a spirit cross over that we what we need to do!  Even though a spirit may be happy and content it is NOT where they belong.  There journey is NOT yet complete.  See, spirits get attached to things, people, places and objects just like we do.  You can bet....after I am gone...(and yes, I mean dead.lol) I will be back to watch you guys looking for me!  And if you think THAT won't make me happy......well....enough said!!! LOL

I feel that God knows there are certain things that make us happy here on earth.....cooking for the family, the outdoors, sewing, rocking in our favorite chair, dancing, playing the piano, anyway you get the point.  And I think HE still lets us enjoy these things...the best way he can.  So yes, ghosts can be happy and when you think about it......isn't  that what we really want for them...... to be happy......:)  Love to hear from you guys....do you think they can be happy or is there just no emotion that can be attached with a spirit?
