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.



A little chocolate milk always makes things better...

LOL.  I hear it all the time..."Why in the world would you want to hunt ghosts"?  And you know my answer is always the same...."because I LOVE IT!!!".  I know that is hard for some people to understand, and yes I do realize it is NOT your NORMAL kind of hobby but FOR ME....it is my life passion!

I had a conversation with a lady this week and she just couldn't understand how I could LOVE something that is scary and sometimes dangerous.  Well, don't we ALL love something or maybe someone that is sometimes scary and dangerous?  Communicating with the dead is not at all scary to me.....the way I look at it is.....every time we go out to investigate.... of course there is going to be some element of danger involved,  but to me no more than...lets say playing sports...football, hockey...or even something more calm like hiking....or running....there is ALWAYS a chance that something could go wrong and someone get hurt.  Right?  But we still play football, hockey, go running or hiking... it doesn't stop us because we LOVE it!

Every paranormal investigator has his or her own reason that they sit in the dark all alone, or go into a haunted cemetery at night and spend hours...but I also have another reason that I do what I do.
And any of you that know me or have been following me for these past years know why. :)  That's right...because of my grandfather.

The reason I want to write about this today is because I recently met someone that I felt was lost.  And we have all been there at one time or another after a loved one has died we sometimes just don't know what to do.  How to get over the pain...how to move on.  Is it hard to lose someone you love....YOU BET....is it easy to move on....NEVER.  This is where I think we sometimes make the mistake of thinking....if we LET THEM GO or move on.....then we have lost them FOREVER.  That is just NOT the case.  When I lost my grandfather I was devastated and just wasn't sure how I was going to make it in this big, bad world without him. And to be honest, after weeks of sheer pain....and grief...I decided I WOULDN'T go on in this big, bad world without him.....there had to be a way to keep him here with me!!!! 

So, I started reading everything I could get my hands on about the AFTERLIFE and the PARANORMAL....different ways to communicate with a loved one that had pasted.  Long story...short.....that's how I got to where I am today.  Over 30 years later of researching the paranormal....it has become just as much a part of me as breathing.  If I had not gotten into the paranormal field, I'm not sure where or what I would be doing today.  FOR ME, researching the paranormal and trying to find out ways to stay in touch with my grandfather(Nan...that's what I called him) without me even knowing it..... kept me from falling into a deep depression and many times in my life has caused me to FOCUS on something other than whatever bad things might be going on in my life....because I HAVE found ways to communicate with my grandfather and understand more today than ever....he has never left me!!!  This is MY way of staying in touch with him and I feel like we are doing this together. :)

See the truth is... as much as we would like to.....and as much as we would like to HOLD ON to our loved ones.....we have to let them go........BUT we don't have to say GOOD-BYE!  Our loved ones are watching over us always.....and they only want us to be happy NOT sad.  So....if you can change the way you think..........to lets say.......they are NOT really gone......and I WILL see them again someday......but until then........you kinda' have to have a LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP. LOL.  I know that's probably not the best way to say it....but sorry....it's the best way I know how.  Just like in a long distance relationship you may not always get to see them.....but you can talk to them anytime you like and believe it or not, sometimes...just talking with them is enough.

So, I guess what I want you to know....is DON'T fall into that depression......don't let the death of someone you love consume your life HERE in the real world.......that doesn't help you, your family or friends.........CHANGE DIRECTIONS.........you still can talk with your loved ones.....just long distance. :)
