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.



I was asked to re-post my blog on the Alamo for someone that is doing a project on the Ghost of the Alamo.  The two previous post are about the Alamo and the Menger Hotel right beside the Alamo.  I did my research paper on the Ghost of the Menger when I was trying to get Certified in this field.  I went to the Menger and ask permission to investigate.  Let me tell you....I went alone...and ask to stay in the most haunted room with the most activity.  I did not really have any experiences in my room BUT every other place in this hotel I had plenty!!!!

1st-  One of my FAVORITE places ever....great pics(orbs, mist, ect) and lots of paranormal activity is...of course....The Alamo in San Antonio Tx.

Originally named Mission San Antonio de Valero, the Alamo served as home to missionaries and their Indian converts for nearly seventy years. Construction began on the present site in 1724. In 1793, Spanish officials secularized San Antonio's five missions and distributed their lands to remaining Indian residents.  A small band of Texans held out for thirteen days against the Centralist army of General Antonio L√≥pez de Santa Anna.  Although the Alamo finally fell in the early morning hours of March 6, 1836.

As with any battle ground, there are lots of spirits that remain behind...for so many different reasons.  Some because they died so tragically that they don't even realize they are dead, some because they knew this place as home and don't want to leave, some because maybe they feel they have "unfinished" business...such as the battle itself....maybe they are still "battling".  Who knows?  The one thing I can tell you is that there is no shortage of ghosts around the Alamo, you need MORE than just one night to see and do all there is to do.  Reports of soldiers, canons, cries, guns and many more sounds are found here.  And Pics.....Some of my most interesting and favorite photos are from the Alamo. 

So, pack up the EMF meters, K-2's and your camera and head to San Antonio for the weekend.
The Alamo, 2009-Nice orb

One of my FAVORITE all time photos!

We could not see him at the time, but the
girl to the right was actually there.

2nd- As long as your at the Alamo, DO NOT miss the opportunity to go to the Menger Hotel right next door. 
The Menger is located adjacent to the Alamo and first opened in 1859, just 23 years after the battle at the Alamo, by owner William Menger and architect John Fries.
 I had soooo many experiences here.... from the minute I opened my door and the radio was playing...which the bell hop had just told me...one of the things that people were experiencing was the radio already being turned on in their rooms before they checked in.  He also told me the maids were NOT allowed to listen to the music or leave the room if any music was playing!!!Around 3:00am I heard very LOUD footsteps walking up behind me while my head was down taking some reading in one of the hallways, but when I looked up there was no one there!(so loud that I actually said out loud "excuse me, let me get out of your way) voices, cold spots, strange noises and even the elevator opening and closing on its on!........ I'll have to tell you about THAT later...and even a photo with a picture of a face in the courtyard, I believe to be Guston Borlum the sculpture of Mount Rushmore.  DON'T pass this one up!!!

I can say that I LOVE this place!!!  And if you look hard enough you can find secret stairways, dark closets and many places that I'm not sure to many people know about unless they are looking.

Anyway, hope this helps a little with your paper.  And thanks for writing me and letting me know you were doing the paper on me and ghosts! :)
