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.



We are having bad weather here in Texas this week, so I thought I would write about ghosts victims of Tornados.  Does a natural disaster cause more ghosts to hand around?  Well that would appear to be the case. 

Tornado Victim Ghosts
On May 22, 2011, an F5 tornado struck Joplin, MO and surrounding regions. Over 150 people died, but one family believes some of the victims have yet to move on.

In an episode of Syfy’s Haunted Collector, the Wilson family in Joplin share tales of the paranormal. The family noticed that each time they took a photo of an old mirror in their home, different lines and shapes appeared on the glass. An EVP session conducted during a paranormal investigation also yielded a faint voice and shuffling sounds on the stairwell. The noises came in response to a question about the 2011 tornado. A Joplin author claims that many first responders noticed paranormal activity in their homes after helping tornado victims. The homeowner, Bob Wilson, assisted with the rescue. Did he attract the attention of a ghost?

Last May, another F5 tornado tore through Moore, OK, killing 24 people, including nine children at school. Nine-year-old Nicholas McCabe was one of the kids who died that day, but Scott McCabe, Nicolas’s father, believes his son is still around.

The elder McCabe told an Oklahoma news station that Nicolas appeared in a photo taken on the 4th of July (below). The girl in the photo is Nicolas’s cousin Madison, but the blurred face behind her is Nicolas, or so his family believes.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Scott said. “Nicolas loved the Fourth of July and he loved firecrackers. My brother, when he saw it, he said the hair stood up on his neck.”

Though some people believe the numerous, and often sudden, deaths caused by natural disasters lead to widespread hauntings, Thai psychologist and media commentator Wallop Piyamanotham offers a different explanation:

“This is a type of mass hallucination that is a cue to the trauma being suffered by people who are missing so many dead people, and seeing so many dead people, and only talking about dead people.”
What do you believe?
