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.



'Behind every man now alive stands 30 ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living.'  ARTHUR C. CLARKE, 2001: A Space Odyssey

The dead are all around us.  We are surrounded by ghosts, but most of us are unaware of their presence because we are preoccupied with our daily routine and our physical needs...... feed the kids breakfast, take them to school, make sure your spouse has money for the toll, pick up groceries, mow the yard, cook dinner, work out(lol)...well I think you get the point when I say "preoccupied".

So, just yesterday, I was asked "why do they stay around?"  Does it mean they HAVEN'T gone to heaven or can't until they complete some task?  hhhuuummm Let's think about that....

Invisible visitors might not be ghosts at all, but guides or guardian angels, but I don't think the name we give disembodied spirits is of importance.  The important thing is....THEYARE HERE!  Sensing their presence is sufficient to signify that there is another reality beyond our physical world, a belief that appears to be confirmed by the countless number of near-death experiences reported by people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds and from all around the world from ancient times to the current day.

So, now what? We KNOW they ARE here...we can sense them all around us.....their smell.....their touch.....we here their voices......we see their faces......we hear them and see things they have moved around to make their presence known.  Right? Right.

Ok....we have all heard that ghosts are here because they have "unfinished business", they don't know that they have died....or something more tragic....and they CAN NOT move on.  I believe, and again this is MY OPINION, that ALL the statements above are TRUE.  I do believe that some spirits stay behind because they died so quickly that they are a bit confused and don't really know what has happened to them...so that is where we come in....and encourage them to "go to the light" or "go ahead and cross over from this world".

Now, lets talk about "unfinished business".  Just because a spirit has "unfinished business" here in this world....DOESN'T mean that they have NOT gone on to heaven.  Sometimes, when someone leaves this world they have "unfinished business" that they need to fulfill to either help themselves or someone else.  Example:  Loving husband dies suddenly and his devastated wife is left to manage the household without him.  This is sooooo overwhelming to her and all she thinks about is their plans to retire, buy an RV and travel....now those plans can never happen.  She falls deep into depression.  God is a loving God and allows the husband to come back and help her with their "unfinished business".  Doesn't mean that he will not be allowed back in heaven...it just means God has allowed him to help his beloved wife.  So, out of the blue....the wife starts getting mail advertising RV's for sale and she suddenly feels her husband saying..."get up and go! You can do this!"  Then one day she receives a letter from a life insurance company explaining that she has just received her husbands benefit money that he had bought years and years ago that she knew nothing about.  And along with the letter is a picture of an RV.     What do you think???......... Did he FINISH his UNFINISHED BUSINESS????  :)

Now, yes they can come down from heaven and visit us....help us and be there when we need them...... BUT sometimes.......I do believe that ISN'T always the case.  Sometimes malevolent spirits that were not NICE(so to speak) here on earth don't get to change....and suddenly become nice and just float away into heaven.....so these spirits are very unpleasant and resent sharing their possessions or personal space with the living.  Because of the life they lived here on earth.......well.....lets jut say they have a really hard time getting to where they need to be....either heaven or....???  And to some spirits....being "trapped" is Hell.

But until I die and can come back and give you guys more answers to your questions(lol)....we ALL have to reach our own conclusions.  And you know........maybe that is the way it is meant to be..... this way.....some of us are in search of evidence of the paranormal and some of us will NEVER believe in it............ different things for different people.......just saying.  :)

Probably unfinished business. Or maybe, they are happy with the location they are haunting..

Very true. Locations hold lots of emotions that tires spirits to them. Thanks for your comment.
