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.



I am going off schedule this week on my topic because I wanted to share a couple things that happened on this weekends tour that I thought was really COOL!

First, on Friday's night tour I had two lady's that attended that I have never meant before.  All that I knew about them was that both had lost their husband's.  One I believe 4 years ago and one 2 years ago.  They were the NICEST ladies and I'm so glad they came on the tour.  Anyway, we were sitting on the bridge doing a spirit box session and I was telling the group about the spirits that I NORMALLY are able to communicate with out at the bridge(Old Alton).  As we all sat quietly on the bridge, I began asking which spirits were with us. You know the normal..."who's here and do you want to communicate with us tonight stuff"..... anyway I asked for the spirit to give me the name of WHO we were communicating with and VERY,VERY clearly and loudly the name we heard was DON !!!  Now, I am sitting there........... VERY confused!!! DON???  That is NOT a name I have EVER gotten on the spirit box down at the bridge before.  And Ron is not the "typical" name for the period of spirits that are associated with the hauntings of the bridge.   So, I say out loud, "hhhuuummm I have NEVER gotten DON before and I don't know WHO that is????".  Just then, one of the ladies sitting right beside me, that had drove all the way in from Louisiana ducked her head and put her hand over her forehead and said "I DO........ it's my husband!!!"   Everyone was stunned!!! I couldn't believe it!  So I asked......... "DON is your husband's name?  She said "yes".  As she started to shake, and seemed to be in disbelief, I asked her was she ok and if she wanted to continue?  At first, she said "I don't know" but after a few minutes she said yes and I asked her would she like to communicate with him and although she seemed nervous...... she agreed.  She got up and stood in front of the spirit box and asked "Don, can you hear me???" and a voice came back and said "I'M HERE"!  I was sooooooo excited for her even though she was trembling uncontrollably. She continued to ask questions, although we never really got anymore direct and clear answers after that.  But she did an AWESOME job and so did DON!!!!!!!!

I think after this experience, in some way she left feeling some relief  to know that HE is STILL with her WHEREVER she goes!!!  I am so grateful to have been a witness to this experience with her and her sister.  It was very powerful for all that witnessed it. :)

You tell me.....was "Don" watching over his lovely wife???
His wife is the one in RED!

 On the same night, another really fun lady came along, named Phoebe.  She seemed to be really excited about being on the tour with us.  We were standing just off the bridge and I was telling the group about one of our team members had been scratched right where we were standing.  I heard her said say.....kind of quietly...."my shoulder is burning".  I didn't really think that much about it, but as I continued to talk, Phoebe continued to move her shoulder and say "my shoulder is REALLY BURNING"!  So, one of the other ladies said "turn around and lets see".  WOW!!!!  There were THREE scratches on shoulder!  Bright red!!  We had NOT been in any trees or wooded area as we had been on the bridge doing the spirit box so it couldn't have been a "branch" or anything.  They looked JUST LIKE the ones I had seen before on our team member!!! I was trying to be a good paranormal investigator and come up with a solution as to HOW the scratches on her shoulder got there before jumping to the conclusion that it was something paranormal.  Now, Phoebe was standing RIGHT beside me and I didn't see her do ANYTHING but stand there by me as I was talking.  But I asked her, "are you SURE you didn't reach back and scratch your shoulder?"  Her response to me was as SHOCKING as the scratches themselves!  She said, "I was in a car wreck and I can't lift my arm but half way up, I couldn't reach behind me even if I wanted to"!!!!  There WAS NO WAY Phoebe could have put those scratches on her shoulder!
After reviewing the scratches, I noticed they are NOT consistent in ANYWAY the left or right arm reaching up from behind scratching one's shoulder would look.   Two of the scratches point toward the right and one down and to the left.  Very unusual pattern, not to mention the width of the scratches.  I have no explanation to explain the scratches other than coming to the conclusion they are paranormal!  I hate that for Phoebe but she was AWESOME about it and stayed claim and continued the tour.

Also, submitted by Phoebe, a very interesting photo she took on the bridge.  Thank you Phoebe.  Nice catch!!!


I enhanced this just a little to see the "figure" better.

One more thing, a lot of the people on the tour were first "timers" as to going on a ghost tour.  So it was really COOL when we were in an open field KNOWN for having paranormal activity and I was doing a spirit box session there and I asked in the very beginning "Tell me how many people are here in the tour tonight?" and the response everyone heard clearly was "26".  Was this correct??????? RIGHT ON THE MONEY!!!!! Lol 
Thanks to everyone for a great tour!!!
