First, A Rock. Now… Breaking My Stuff.

Look, I am ALL for being recognized. I’m not the kind of girl that likes to be ignored. And I’m not one to ignore people. Really. But I think it’s time to ignore, or at least TRY to ignore whomever is playing games.

And these games aren’t the kind that are really kid friendly. And they certainly aren’t games that keep objects safe, either.

Last week, I had posted about the rock that was flung VERY hard from INSIDE my home by unseen force and hands… or people. It whacked the metal of the screen door so hard, that it ricocheted off of the door, hit the wood door, then bounced off of it and landed right at the door way in between the two doors. To read that entry, CLICK HERE.

This morning another strange anomaly has happened. One that has not taken place in several months. The last occurrence in that spot happened somewhere in between Halloween and Thanksgiving of last year (2011).

It was an exact week since the rock incident. The only difference is that today’s problem happened this morning. The rock was thrown at around 4:30 in the afternoon of last Thursday.

Basically, this is what transpired in the dining room…

One of my salt/pepper shakers literally “flew” off of it’s shelf above the lizard’s cage and smashed all over my dining room floor.

There’s no conceivable way that this should have happened. If it fell, it would have hit the top of the cage, and bounced off, or have stayed atop the cage.

It was “thrown” off the shelf with so much force on to the floor, that it shattered…. Here we go again. Second thing from there to do that.

The shelf is firmly connected to the wall of the dining room, above my Bearded Dragon’s cage. You cannot access the back of the cage and the table that the cage sits on, being that both are right at, or extremely close to the wall.

And like I had already previously stated, the shaker never just tipped or fell over. If so, then it would HAVE TO land on Gobi’s cage (40 gal. long tank with screened top). Then from there, it would either come to rest on the top of the cage, or roll off (which is basically impossible with the cage being wide) and then hit the floor. Still, it would have maybe only cracked, but not all out shatter.

The salt shaker hit the wood floor with such a hard force, that it literally shattered in to small pieces. It’s as if someone got angry, grabbed the boot-shaped shaker and had thrown the shaker on to the floor very hard in a fit of rage and/or anger.

Thankfully, my kids (and the one child that stayed last night, being he is one of my son’s friends) were NOT in the dining room for breakfast when this took place. God only knows what could have happened.

Possession of Inanimate Objects (VIDEOS included!)

My father has a “Bride” doll sitting atop his dresser in his bedroom. Because it was in storage for a while, in the desert setting heat (Nevada, in Carson City), the face is a bit squished inward. Which makes that stupid doll even more creepy.

And it’s supposed to go to my oldest daughter. But having the vibes and chills from it in 2007 while out there, I already told my Dad that while it was stipulated in the will for his mother’s doll (antique) to go to her, that it will NOT me welcomed in to my home.

There is more than JUST a doll sitting on that dresser. It’s eyes followed me. I felt like I was being followed almost, even though it stayed stationary. Too much creep-factor for this chick to handle!

And I really don’t wish to be a spectator like the ones in the following video…. Especially with this kind of phenomenon.

 

Um…. Thanks. But I’ll pass on the possibility to have this happen. And in my own home of all places.

Here is a popular doll. Robert.

 

As you can see from these videos, it seems that spirits can take on forms within dolls. They supposedly can walk, open and close the dolls eyes and maybe even talk.

Dolls are vessels in which were initially made as to withhold and contain spirits of the dead. Or so, it is said, anyways. I believe that with haunting phenomena, anything is honestly possible. Because it’s all about energy and matter. Which is primarily what makes us.

We are energy and matter. And those two traits cannot be killed or destroyed. And I believe that those two things make what we deem as being our soul or spirit. It is what carries on of us after our physical being is gone from this earth.

What is YOUR take on the possibility of dolls being possessed by the dead? Is it a real possible equation in the mysteries of life, death, and the hereafter? Or is it that the old “dirt nap” is nothing but no brain activity, rotting away of your shell and that you have nothing to look forward to?

And can we come back again?… Reincarnation. Or regeneration of our spirit/soul. That will be the next subject I think we will tackle at a later date.

California’s Most Haunted Places

Please take this video and all it states as claims, with a grain of salt. This video is almost an hour long and filled with various stories and claims of personal experiences and legends of hauntings throughout the state of California. Including the Whaley House in San Diego.

According to the date stamp, this is about 3 years old.

Part 1 of 6 of “Ghosts of California” with the date stamp being about a year and a half ago since it was posted.

Real Life, (Local) "Ghost Hunters" wants to check Out My Place!

Over on FaceBook, I am friends with a couple of guys that are Lead Investigators of local-area Paranormal Investigation groups. Both are really awesome guys, and are helpful. One of them does YouTube videos of investigation tutorials and the like all of the time. You can find him there under the page Scream Freak 79. His name is Mike. And he the Founder of Viper Paranormal.

My other Paranormal enthusiastic pal is Alan. He’s the Founder of Bedford Paranormal. We talked at great length for a couple days in regards to the happenings, both past and present that have been going on in my home around my family. We will be here for four years soon.

After telling Alan about everything that has transpired, and after he took a good look at the picture I had shown him of my daughter and an unseen arm (that seems to dissipate as it moves towards the wrist and hand area), he would like to come out and investigate the place.

We started talking not too long ago, after the last known incident involving ALL THREE of the kids.

Once in a while, they all get along. And this one night, they all three wished to bunk together in my son’s room. Being THAT is a rare occurrence, I okay’d it.

Within about ten or twenty minutes, all three came running out of the room. Two in tears, all three with bug eyes. They were most certainly afraid. And mind you, when the lights are out in my son’s room, and with the curtains and shades drawn, it is D-A-R-K in there.

When they came out, they about fell over one another as they ran through the hall, part of the dining area, and in to the living room as I sat here at the computer.

After catching her breath, my oldest said that as she was laying on her brother’s bed, foot-end, she felt “weird”. She looked down towards the floor. What she said next shocked even myself!

Apparently, in the pitch black darkness, she’d seen a hand, with an arm, that was a “black, dark shadow hand with an arm,that I could still see, even though it’s really dark in B’s room”. It was, by her description, REACHING AROUND the end of the bed, and moving diagonal toward HER as if to try and grab her or touch her. And also, it seems that the other two kids had SEEN IT themselves as it was coming for their big sister.

After hearing what had transpired just nights before, and in the past, including my more-than-usual sighting of the little boy by the stairs of my basement foyer, and now even seeing him run past my bedroom down there here and there, as if he is going to the Family Area, Alan was getting concerned.

It’s to the point that he would like to bring his Paranormal Investigation Team in, Bedford Paranormal (link above in previous paragraph). I made it well known that I will NOT have my kids here if/when it takes place. They can tell the team what they have seen/heard/felt, then it’s time to ship them off to a friend.

That is IF I do this. Scott has yet to know of it. And I like that a private, localized group wants to take my case of haunted happenings. I have had a couple people tell me to contact Ghost Hunters. But nah! I love the show. But I really do not wish to have my family or my home on national TV. I’m no “fame attention seeker”. Especially for THIS kind of subject.

Between Mike at Viper Paranormal and Alan at Bedford Paranormal, they have been a WONDERFUL help and guidance. They take my situation seriously. But they also look at it with a skeptic’s view (think Ghost Hunters).

Now, how to tell the hubby that a local ghost hunting group wishes to check out our hauntingly active home…

 

Bobby Mackey’s Music World Dance Hall…Gate to Hell?

I have seen documentaries on this place. And even an episode of Ghost Adventures, where Zak Bagans and crew not only went there and investigated once, but TWICE. And both times, people didn’t come out of the dance hall/country nightclub unscathed in one way or another.

Bobby Mackey’s Music World, which opened it’s doors as such in 1978, sits in a little country town called Wilder, Kentucky. At one time in it’s rich history it had served as the town’s slaughter house. After the place was abandoned for many, many years, Bobby Mackey decided to purchase the old, run down building and it’s land. He then turned it in to a place that was (supposed to be) fun and friendly, giving the community a place to hang out and have a good time.

But in it’s heyday before Bobby took over, there was a suicide and murder on the property. And it’s also been dubbed “the Gate to Hell”.

In the following clip, you will hear from the FORMER employee of Bobby Mackey’s and his shocking story of possession thanks to this place.

The laundry list of what has been known to those that enter the building is pretty extensive. In this clip, you get a taste of what has been known to go on, and some of the back story/history of the building….And something happens to Zak as he is talking with a building historian.

After their first taste with the demons, the GA Crew go back for another round. You get a little more of the past history, and see some eerie “coincidences”. And will get a small peek at the original tape of the exorcism of the former employee, who was possessed by one of the resident demons.

As you can see here, the demonic paranormal is NOT a thing to “play around” with. It is real. It CAN hurt you. It can possibly even KILL you.

To this day, Bobby Mackey’s Music World is open for business, serving up drinks, dance and paranormal activity.

Here is a video of Bobby singing “Johanna”, which is the tale of the supposed ghost of the woman killed by her lover, with her head cut off and dropped down the well, which is the supposed “Gate to Hell”.

 

Big Grandma’s Story

My husband’s Grandmother is lovingly known as “Big Grandma”. No, not because she’s “fluffy”. But because she is a Great-Grandma. So when we tell the kids that we are going to HIS grandma’s, we tell them we are going to “Big Grandma’s”, or as my son now lovingly calls her, his “elderly” Grandma (lol).

Yesterday, we went over to her place to give her our Mother’s Day gift of a re-blooming lilac plant and the school pictures I’d promised her. We met up with my husband’s parents there and my MIL got her new yard flag and her pictures of the kids as well.

As myself, Big Grandma and my in-law’s were sitting around, talking, Big Grandma told us something that honestly, made my jaw drop. My MIL took more stock in it though than my FIL did, as I watched the expression on his face as BG told her amazing story.

Per her count, BG has now had two times of this experience happen to her. But in two separate locations of her house. Remember too, BG is 86 years old, that she is now a widow and lives independently and is for the most part, sharp as a tack.

Big Grandma usually doesn’t go to sleep until the wee early hours of the morning of the next day. She is an avid bookworm. So, she will read a good while, then turn the TV to something and finally drift off to dreamland.

But apparently one night, as she was not really tired and by her account NOT asleep or dreaming, she witnessed something out of the ordinary. Especially to her.

Standing just a few feet from her, near the dining table, which sits in the spacious living room by it’s large windows, stood a faceless woman in period dress, with a bonnet and long “house dress” from what sounded like the Pioneer days of the 1800’s.

This faceless woman said nothing. Did not move or come towards BG. BG said she just stood there. And apparently was there for a good length of time before fading in to the thin night air before the old woman’s very eyes.

A while later, as in sometime after the first appearance, this woman in period dress, who again was faceless, was spotted in BG’s bedroom, as she laid in her room, trying to fall asleep for the night. Again, she was awake by her account. And she remembers exactly what the woman was like from the time before.

By what I understand, before the house was there, in which they’ve (her and Big Papa, before his passing earlier this year) lived in their home for a good 25 years, was nothing but pasture. And quite possibly a log cabin home (think Little House On The Prairie home) was there way before their home was placed upon its foundation. And this lady that BG witnessed coming to visit her was fitting in with the possibility of such a thing happening before her home was there.

By what I heard, shockingly of course, seeing as I never have seen, heard or even thought of Big Grandma being the “type” to believe in such things as ghosts, it sounds an awful lot like a residual haunting. Like whomever lived in that area of the land before is just trying to retrace the steps of a place that is no longer standing.

The lady figure never, in either instance spoke according to BG. Just stood there, “looking” at the frail lady with her faceless body, only to fade in to nothingness before her very eyes.

I’d love to figure out how to find more information about the land that the house currently stands upon. This could get QUITE interesting.

 

Spirit Guides

Some people believe in Guardian Angels. Some people don’t believe that we have some mystical being “watching” us or “protecting” us, that we are pretty much on our own. And then, some people believe that they have what is called a “Spirit Guide” that is with us in one way or another at all times, even after our physical death, as to help lead us to wherever it is that we are to go after this plane of life has ceased.

Spirit Guide is defined as according to Wikipedia,..

“”Spirit guide” is a term used by the Western tradition of Spiritualist Churches, mediums, and psychics to describe an entity that remains a disincarnate spirit in order to act as a guide or protector to a living incarnated human being.

According to theosophical doctrine, spirit guides are not always of human descent. Some spirit guides live as energy, in the cosmic realm, or as light beings, which are very high level spirit guides. Some spirit guides are persons who have lived many former lifetimes, paid their karmic debts, and advanced beyond a need to reincarnate. Many devotees believe that spirit guides are chosen on “the other side” by human beings who are about to incarnate and wish assistance.

Some[quantify] lucid dreamers claim it is possible to meet one’s spirit guide or “dream guide” in dreams or on the astral plane (see Astral Projection)[citation needed]. Their guidance is said not to require mediumship.

Many well-known psychics have publicly described their guides. Helena Blavatsky talked about being advised by “Mahatmas”, discarnate personages from India and especially Tibet, who dressed and behaved according to the dictates of their respective cultures. Alice Bailey also described having contact with a spirit teacher whom she called “The Tibetan”.

American Spiritualists of the 19th and 20th centuries often described their guides as resembling Native Americans. One popular spirit guide of this type, encountered by many Anglo-American Spiritualists, was named White Hawk. Among African-American Spiritualists, especially those in churches that were founded by or influenced by Mother Leafy Anderson, the Native American guide was named Black Hawk, and was presumed to be the spirit of the Fox tribe warrior of the same name.”

Personally, I am up in the air in regards to this subject. I feel that we have someone/thing within us. Sometimes I can clearly hear my mother’s voice in my head speaking my name or even singing along with me to a song that she liked in life. Or I hear a voice telling me words that are fleeting and almost whisper-like..I view that as my conscience guiding me.

As for Spirit Guides, I see them basically as Guardian Angels. They both have pretty much the same job description, just under different “employment” names.

But I also see it as WE control our own personal destiny. No one and nothing, including angels or guides can control our path for us. Maybe they can guide us in what THEY feel is the “right” thing to do, say, or place to be. But in the end, it is ourselves that have to guide and lead. Not anything spiritual.
