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.



One of the questions I get asked a lot is "do ghosts or spirits PROTECT us?"  My first response is YES!!!  But here's the deal....spirits can act as that "little voice" in our heads that tells us to THINK TWICE sometimes when we normally wouldn't.  Kinda like.....I NORMALLY would take my dogs out every morning to go potty and never look down.....I would just open the door and let them out and step out right after them......been doing it the same way over and over again for years........BUT........on a particular  morning I got up and started my NORMAL routine as always to let the dogs out.  I opened the door......the dogs ran out.....and for SOME REASON.....I have NO idea WHY.......but this morning that "little voice" in my head.....said I needed to look down.  So.....I looked down before stepping out and thank goodness I DID because there was a BIG SNAKE laying right where I normally would have stepped.  Just Good Luck?....Intuition? or SOMEONE watching out for me!!!  I bet you can guess which ONE I think it was!!!

On Facebook, there is a group from Salem, Mass that is always posting the coolest pics so it made me think of a photo I took..... that I think shows spirits or ghosts whichever you prefer to call them...protecting a young boy.  Oh....I have to throw this in......if you don't follow me on Facebook please do!   It's Becky Vickers-Becksgh.  OK....back to the story.....

I went to Salem back in 2005 and I can tell you it was AMAZING!  For someone that is interested in the paranormal I can't think of a better place to be!!!  Anyway, I had taken a ghost tour around the city and of course we walked by an old cemetery where most of the "accused" witches where buried.  Around the cemetery was a rod iron fence with spikes on the top. You can see them in these pictures.

The above pics show the fence around the cemetery.  As we walked around listening to the tour guide, there was this young boy that wasn't at all interested in what was going on.  You know....he was just doing his OWN THING.  Anyway, we stopped in front of the cemetery and the little boy jumps up on a stone ledge that was around part of the cemetery.  I was trying to pay attention to our tour guide but I was sooooo uneasy about this little boy on this ledge!  He was hoping back and forth and his parents weren't paying any attention at all!  I remember thinking to myself......there are a lot of spirits here.....could you PLEASE watch over this young boy because IF he falls......one wrong move....he will fall straight onto those spikes on top of the fence!!!!  Well, below is the picture I took of him on the ledge..........and well......you tell me........do you think anyone heard me???  One on each side....

I DO believe spirits can PROTECT us, maybe not in a physical sense...but they can give us CLUES to help protect ourselves. They can come to us in a dream, we can hear a tiny little voice, see something we may have not noticed before....but they TRY to get our attention...the best way they can to help protect us and guide us in the direction that God intended us to go. :)  We can't have the mind set that our loved ones WILL ALWAYS protect us from harms way....but when they can.....THEY DO!!!

I just wanted to post a couple more pics that I thought were so cool that I took at the same cemetery.  I don't think they were protecting anyone....but I think THEY definitely wanted to be seen.

Look how thin the headstones are.

A man was stoned to death in this exact spot
because he would not confess to being a witch.

The voice in your head is your conscious not a ghost!

Thank you Deborah! I agree 100%. Maybe in my article referring to a spirit as that "little voice in your head" wasn't the best choice of words but I was just trying to make a point...that spirits DO protect us in MANY ways...:)
