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.



Hi everyone!!!  I am back from vacation and I missed you guys!!!  I am working on a really cool video to share with you guys of a residential investigation.  But in the mean time, someone ask me to repost about dowsing rods.  Hope you guys had a great holiday last week and now it's back to business. :)

The art of dowsing has been around for centuries, perhaps even thousands of years. It is the oldest form of divination known to man and has been used for a variety of different reasons, including searches for underground water, discovering the location of unmarked graves, determining the sex of unborn children and even locating ghosts.
How dowsing actually works remains a mystery, but it has proven to be uncannily accurate over the years. Even the American Society of Dowsers admits that “the reasons the procedures work are entirely unknown.”
The standard practice of dowsing is to search for underground water sources.  No one knows how this works, it simply does.  I work for a water dept. and with all the MODERN DAY equipment to locate water lines, the one my company still RELIES on the most....is you guessed it...dowsing rods.  I am just amazed sometimes when I watch the guys walk over a water source and the rods just cross!!!! 
To use dowsing rods to find ghosts, most dowsers recommend using two L-shaped rods that have been made from brass or some lightweight metal. Hold the short end of the rod so that the longer piece points outward, away from your body. The rods should be held loosely so that they have room to swing easily back and forth.
After that, begin searching the building or location. It has been suggested that it’s possible that by searching, and by concentrating on what you are looking for, you can find ghosts, anomalous energy and some say even dimensional portals, using dowsing rods.
Walk about the location and follow where the rods lead you. They are supposed to point in the direction of any energy they detect. Once you have discovered the energy source, the rods will cross, signaling that the area in question has been found.
I have used and continue to use dowsing rods in my investigations.  You don't need a lot of FANCY EQUIPMENT to find ghosts, just a set of dowsing rods and they are very inexpensive. 
Above is a video of my daughter using a set of dowsing rods for the very first time.  What impresses me about this clip, is that the wind was blowing pretty hard that day, so the rods SHOULD not have been able to move AGAINST the strong wind BUT THEY DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!  You can see the surprise look on my daughters face when they do.  This video was taken at South Padre Island, Tx at a haunted light house.  I just had to stop by on the way home.  One more thing you will notice, it is NOT at night!!!  It was early morning and we were having great communication as you will see.
OK......I know.  It looks like Dowsing Rods could easily be manipulated by the person holding the rods, but until you use them, you won't understand that WE are NOT manipulating them at all!!!!!  They are a favorite tool of mine to use when ghost hunting....so give them a try!
If you would like to order a set, check out Amazon.com for Beck's Custom Dowsing Rods. :)

I've used dowsing rods to find a Spirit Portal. Worked quite well. So I'm not going to knock 'em.

Heather thanks for that. I DO believe their is something to the Dowsing Rods. I don't fully understand HOW they work but they do. I really enjoy using them.
