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.


Here is a short list of great books to get you started:

1. Picture yourself Ghost Hunting by Christopher Balzano-Step-by-Step instruction for Exploring Haunts and Finding Spirits, Spooks, and Specters.(CD is included, but not that great)

2. The Ghost Hunters Guidebook by Troy Taylor-The Essential Guide to Investigating Ghosts & Hunting's( I am a big fan of Troy Taylor so I have all his books and he is the founder of the American Ghost Society which I am a member of)

3. Best Tales of Texas Ghosts by Docia Schultz Williams-Evidence and eyewitness testimony of Ghost Tales in Texas(Good book with easy to read stories)

4. Ghosts of North Texas by Mitchel Whitington-Tuck this book under your arm and jump in your car and check out local haunted houses, inns, restaurants and other locations with many encounters with the unknown.

5. The Eagle and the Rose-by RoseMary Altea-RoseMary is a Medium and writes about real-life experiences with helping others communicate with the dearly departed. (This is a GREAT feel good book.  I know that sounds strange but I LOVED this book so much and if you have never read a book about the "afterlife" please don't pass this one up.  But be warned, there is one chapter that is really hard to read that deals with a rape.  This is a book based on true stories so there are lots of different lives involved, some good and some not so good.)

6. Ghost of the World-Diane Canwell &Jonathan Sutherland-  I just bought this book at Barnes and Noble for less than $10. This book has the best pics in it! They are beautiful. It is a book of different people and places that have had a presence in our time or history.  It is not so much stories as it is pictures. Great book to add to your collection.

Ok.  Here are some basic Ghost Hunters Must haves!

ELF ZONE-EMF METER-Learn how to explorer and investigate the invisible electromagnetic waves that surround you with the exciting E.L.F.meter.

What this meter lacks in resolution it makes up with ease of use and very low costs. A favorite among beginner ghost hunters. Three LED lights which are easy to see in the dark indicate field strength. Green light - 0-2.5 mG (safe). Yellow light - 2.5 - 7 mG (caution). Red light - 8 or more mG (danger). 9-volt battery not included. 

This is a very low cost way to begin your ghost hunting adventures.  The cost should be somewhere between $15-$20. This was the very first piece of "equipment" I bought when I started out going to graveyards and wondering the halls of haunted buildings.  It is a fun little meter. Very, very, easy to read.  Great for beginners..... You should get you one.

La Cross Infrared ThermometerThe LA CROSS INFRARED THERMOMETER-Don't let the size 2.2"x 0.9" x 4" fool you, it gets the job done. Press and hold the operating button and the temperature of the surface will read on the top of the display.

It has C/F temperature display selectable, auto-power off, back light, and comes with a neckband and a soft padded case for protection. The neckband makes it convenient for ghost hunters to wear while their hands are free, but as soon as a cold spot is detected the small infrared thermometer is available to shot in the direction of the temperature disturbance. A great affordable device to use for finding cold spots during ghost investigations.

I love this little gadget!  It is light weight and very easy to use.  You just point it in any direct and it will give you a digital reading on the temp.  Great for detecting cold spots.  Now, it does cost a bit more than the EMF meter above, but to me it is worth it.  You should be able to find these anywhere from $50 and up.  They are small so they can even fit in your pocket, just in case that unexplained chair lefts off the floor....you may want to check out. :0

The ENERGIZER LED CAP LIGHT-This is a great little green light to use for night investigations.  It comes in a variety of colors, but I like the green one.  I don't use it to go on a cap(although that is what it is made for) I just carry it around and shine it where ever I want.  Very bright and you can find them at Walmart for around $6 or $7.
