About Me

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 wanted to talk to you guys this week about angels.....well, it is that time of year where we see lots of angels.......whether it is a beautiful angel tree topper........pretty wrapping paper with angels and Santa Clause.......or gorgeous crystal figurine....angels are all around us....................in MORE ways than one.
The birth of the depiction of angels with wings really came into existence through artists who wished to share their interpretation about angelic beings. The word Angel means "messenger".  To them, these "messengers" were ethereal entities who visit mankind from a higher realm, namely "Heaven." The wings translate the idea quite well that spirits come from above, from the heavens.  They gave us the depictions we hold fast to today about angels.  Although it is not common, people do still claim to have dreams, visions and other types of visitations from angels with wings.  We all envision an angel floating around in the heavens above us, when the reality is they walk beside us everyday.

I believe that angels can take many forms and show themselves in the most important time in someone's life.  How many stories have you heard about that someone was in a car wreck and was trapped inside and all of the sudden a "stranger" shows up and saves their lives but disappears and they are never seen or heard from again?  Guardian angel????  They didn't have wings..... hhhuummm

Many believe that GOD chooses his angels to come down from Heaven to protect and guide us.  I DO believe GOD allows love ones to watch over us and protect us. I don't think God says "well, now that you're an angel you can NEVER go back to earth and support your loved ones."

I think they(angels) "show" themselves many times...in many different ways.  I can't say that I have ever SEEN an angel in the FORM that most people think of....but I CAN TELL you that I FEEL them all the time....and I see the SIGNS that I think I am suppose to see from them.  Angels are all around us all the time...... all WE have to do is OPEN our minds and our hearts and realize that the "little signs" that we THINK we are getting from our loved ones aren't just a coincidence and the feeling we get that "they" are around us is real. 

An elderly lady who has lost her husband of 50 years sets in the dark so sad....what will she do without him!  She just can't bring herself to find peace in her heart.....and a smile.....well.....that just seems impossible!!!!!  Suddenly she looks over at her husbands chair that sits right beside hers and notices a brochure tucked down in the side.  It was of a vacation resort that she and her husband had planned on seeing on there next anniversary but they had lost the information so they never followed through with making the plans.  How did it get in his chair???  She had sat in his chair many times since his death and never noticed it????  A huge flood of emotion comes over her....and tons of happy memories of them sitting around the table talking about the resort and what they wanted to do. All of the sudden....she just stops............and a warm feeling comes over her as well as a slight hint of his cologne.  What did this mean????  For this elderly lady it was the perfect sign from her  husband.....telling her "go......take the vacation we had planned and have a great time".  Was he her "guardian angel"?  Did she open her heart and receive the message she needed??? What do think?

The picture below maybe as close to "seeing" an angel as I may ever get.  It was taken at the Alamo on a really cold winter night around 2:30am.  When I was taking the picture, there was not another person around.  The picture is of the memorial that sits out by the street in memory of all those who have lost lives here.  It is blurry but for me......if I could imagine what an angel might look like.....well....you tell me???   

This is the memorial out in front of the Alamo
People looking at the memorial earlier.


Where the light is on the ground is the memorial.
