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.



Well we are right in the mist of summer and that means kids are out of school and parents are trying to find ways to entertain them and that more than likely will include movies, and going to shows so I thought I would do a re-post on the very haunted Lincoln Theater in Decatur, Illinois.   By far, this is one of my FAVORITE places to ghost hunt.  I hate to say it, but I do believe that it was closed last year to the public and yes, even for groups to do ghost hunts. :(
This is the blog post I wrote back in 2013 after attending the American Ghost Society Conference in Decatur, Illinois.  I had one of the MOST IMPRESSIVE flashlight communication sessions I have ever experienced down in the basement of the theater.  And yes...I know...many investigators don't put much "stock" in the flashlight communication (having the spirits turn the light on and off in response to your questions) but I do.  Anyway, below is my post and be sure to check out the pictures closely.  And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!  I exceeded my goal last month of having over 10, 000 viewers read my blog!!!!  I ended up with 10,597!!!!!  YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!  I appreciate the support and I LOVE my viewers.  It's because of you that I keep writing all the crazy tails that I experience with the paranormal.  Have a great week. :)
Below are photo's that I took during this year's American Ghost Society Conference in Decatur, Illinois and again this year IT did NOT disappoint!!!   The photo's below are inside the Haunted Lincoln Theater around 12:00am.  The photo's are of a staircase that reportedly is haunted by a spirit named Red.  He was a stagehand that fell asleep at the top of the stairs, and fell to his death!  You can read about the tragic history of this Theater at http://haunteddecatur.com/lincoln.html
 At the top of the stairs, many people have reported feeling scared....and heard loud voices.  Possibly actors who had preformed at the theater....... maybe talking with Red???  Who knows.  But I can tell you that I watched a couple go up the stairs very calmly and come RUNNING back down just freaking out that they heard voices right by them!!!!!!!!!  And believe me when I tell you they were serious! LOL  The guy was shaking and the girl was ready to leave....and I mean leave the theater.....SHE WAS DONE!!!
Below are the photo's I took of them RUNNING back down the stairs screaming!  The girl was in front coming down as fast as she could and she was physically shaking!  She just kept screaming "SOMEONE IS UP THERE.......SOMEONE IS UP THERE............"!!!!!! And the guy was RIGHT behind her carrying a flashlight.  So I just turned around and snapped a few pictures of them not really sure of what was going on but if something was by them, I was hoping to catch it on one of the pictures.  BOY....was I in for a surprise!!!!  The pictures came out pretty blurry because of how fast they were coming back down the stairs.  So, for that sorry...it was the best I could do.
None of that is really that out of the ordinary.....right?  When someone is scared...... they run.....they scream....they shake.   But that ISN'T what I found strange!!!!!  Check out the pictures at the bottom.  Photos 1-5 are just pictures of the staircase but there is an Orb in pic 4 that is in the exact spot that something VERY STRANGE was caught on camera.  Also, the other photos 1-5 have a bright Orb at the top of the stairs where Red was to have fallen asleep and fell off.
OK.....now I want you to take a GOOD look at photo 6.  This is the original photo of the couple running back down the stairs in fear.  As I was going over the photo's, and I came to this one, and INSTANTLY thought..........WAIT!!!!!!...........What the heck???????????  I was standing there watching these TWO people come down the stairs.......but yet.....there are THREE people in this photo????  Who WAS the third person?????  I can assure you there were only TWO people on those stairs at the time.  Can you see what I see in pic 7?  I was sooooo excited about capturing this figure on camera I couldn't wait to show it to Luke and Adam, two guys who have been in this field for many years and have been involved with Troy Taylor from the very beginning of the AGS conference and I would consider them most definitely  PROFESSIONALS in this field.  They where VERY impressed and wanted me to send them the photo to analysis it further. 
Now, as if the photo isn't enough, when you add HEAT IMAGING you can clearly see....there are three area's detected.  Or two people and an unknown.......spirit?????
Luke said that the photo was really interesting because it was as if someone was standing BEHIND the stairs because you can see the stairs visibly in front of the figure.   To me......it looks like a sailor uniform.......and one of the main performers at the Lincoln was Bob Hope who did a skit in a sailor suit.  Luke seems to see a man in a shirt with a tie, and in slacks.  What do you see???  Whether a sailor or a man in a shirt and tie, you can't deny that something or someone was on those stairs.
This was an awesome time and I can't wait to go back next year!!!  I'll be posting more from the conference......just as exciting as this!!!!!  Stay tuned.....
