Have a Rum and Ghost at the VFW

Grunge USA Flag

 

It was a weekend of Spirits, ghostly birthday reminders and fun!

I attended an investigation at a local haunted VFW Post. Regular ghosts at this lively VFW include:

Skippy: a foul mouthed sailor who likes rum and coke. We picked up several  of his foul expressions on the ghost box. We had to cut him off.

Gene: loves cigars and was in attendance this night when we smelled his cigar smoke. Ghosts don’t have any respect for “No Smoking” signs.

Mike hangs out in the hallway as Vick sips his wine. We caught a few others lounging in the chairs by the bar:

During an amazing interactive flashlight session, the recently deceased Joe acknowledged that he is safe on the Other Side and he has been happily reunited with his wife.

Finally, we have the Unknown Orb guarding the Memorial Corner. The names of members on Sick Call are posted and a reserved table, chair and empty boots complete the memorial for all veterans and those lost in the service to their country.

VFW 3

And then there’s Grandma.

I’m usually the one who remembers every birthday, but this year I’ve been so preoccupied with my book release that I forgot the anniversary of my grandmother’s 104th birthday.

Never fear. She reminded me.

It was the weekend and I got up early, let the dogs out and went back upstairs to do some work on the computer. A few hours later I went downstairs and the television was on. No one had been downstairs. Even the dogs didn’t have access to the room where the television was located. I turned the TV off, and went back upstairs. I came right back down, and the TV was on again. No one was around, and no one could have turned it on. It’s never done this before.

My son and husband finally got up and came downstairs. I mentioned the television and my son said that last night while he and his friend played video games, the music box started playing. We haven’t played that music box in ages. The music box is directly under the haunted television. Then my sister texted me reminding me of my grandmother’s birthday.

The pieces finally fell into place. My grandmother was known for her lack of skills with electronics, but obviously she’s picked up a few pointers on the Other Side. This is the same grandmother who called my husband on his cell phone the day of our daughter’s wedding. Grandma was letting me know then that she’d be in attendance at the wedding, and she was reminding me now that it was her birthday.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

It’s Official! He’s Real!

IMG_2839

I told you the presidents weren’t happy and now it’s official.

The photograph of George Washington has been verified by experts and the verdict is in:

IT’S REAL!

I knew it was real, since I took it, but now the experts agree with me.

Joshua P. Warren is the host of a syndicated weekly paranormal program, Speaking of Strange, and he is regarded as “one of the great paranormal investigators of all time” by George Noory, host of Coast to Coast AM.

Joshua P. Warren

I sent the photo of George Washington to Mr. Warren and his team of experts did their best to prove that this was not a picture of a ghost.

They took it apart, pixel by pixel, and after an extremely thorough examination, they decided that this was an authentic photo of a ghost.

Mr. Warren is even planning a visit to the tavern where the photo was taken and I have no doubt that the presidents will be there with us.

Ghost of George Washington

Do you realize what this means?

It gives validation to what I’ve been saying.

The presidents are upset and they’ve come forward to be heard, and to be seen. They are crying out for you to hear what they have to say. They may be on the Other Side, but they retain their love and passion for the United States and they have more than a few choice words about what we’ve done with it.

They want you to hear their words before you cast your vote.

Stay tuned! It won’t be long now.

Hold Your Horses Guys!

hollywoodstarlogo

What do those in Hollywood love? Publicity!

Being on the Other Side doesn’t change a thing. They still have no problem stepping up and seeking the spotlight.

They’ve been coming out of the woodwork lately. Famous movie stars and Hollywood types trying to get my attention.

Oh, woe is me! I sure hope no one thinks I’m complaining!

As my launch of Presidential Souls quickly approaches, a rash of Hollywood celebrities have come forward. I guess they figure I’m finished with the presidents, so it’s their turn now.

Unfortunately, I’m not ready for them yet! They’re all adorable and I’m so honored to meet them. I’m taking notes and I’m promising each and every one of them that I’ll do their Hat readings as soon as possible.

The first to step up was Walt Disney! He had a definite message to give us. He was persistent, so I did his Hat reading and his antics still crack me up.

Next, I had visits from Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.

The next visitor was a surprise and there is quite a story to tell with him. I realized later that he was in Ocean’s 11 with Dean and Frank. It made me wonder. Was Red Skelton good friends with the Rat Pack?

The list grows longer every day, but these stars are going to have to wait in line, just like the presidents had to wait their turn. The first ladies are next on the agenda. I’ve got a good start on First Lady Souls, but I still have much to do before I can begin doing readings on the Hollywood crowd.

I can’t wait t get to know each and every one of them. Have no fear that they are alive and well and still seeking the spotlight, even from the Other Side.

I Got A Ghost For Christmas

Japan Blog

This is Dwight. He’s the ghost we brought home for Christmas.

His name is Dowaito, but I call him Dwight. It makes it easier for me to talk to him, and he doesn’t mind.

My husband received a WWII Japanese Arisaka rifle as a Christmas present. I only caught a quick glimpse of the gift during the flurry of holiday festivities, and I had forgotten about it, until I sensed an extra passenger when returning home on Christmas night.

I as I listened to a screaming Dwight behind me in the car, I asked my husband to tell me the story about the rifle. The Arisaka Type 38 rifle belonged to a Japanese soldier in WWII. This rifle is unique because the Chrysanthemum Flower Seal, stamped on the top of the receiver, is intact.

I chose the picture of the Japanese soldier (above) because he looks like Dwight. A face appeared in a reflection in one of the photos I took of the rifle. The eyes in the photo appear overly large, but later when I searched for a Japanese solider image, I realized that the large eyes could be glasses.

Dwight Ghost Face

Dwight was used to yelling a lot because no one has listened to him for a very long time. Thankfully, the fates brought him to me so I can help him find his way home.

I thought the story ended here, but Dwight wasn’t finished with me yet. He knew I was listening, so he invited his former comrades to raise their voices.

In family discussions about the rifle, I learned that my husband’s brother (the gun owner before he gifted it), also has in his possession a Japanese Good Luck flag, complete with blood stains.

Rabaul Battle Flag

A wallet with Japanese family photos was acquired with the flag during WWII.

When a door to the Other Side is opened, multiple Spirits may use it. Thats’s exactly what happened with these Japanese soldiers and it’s why I wrote, Presidential Souls, about all of the U.S. presidents who came forward to deliver their messages.

The Moral to this story is: If you took home any antique gifts this holiday season, be aware that you may have been gifted with some extra special Christmas Spirits!

Haunted objects caught on camera

Fascinating about James Dean!

Dark Hauntings

haunted objects

For centuries, there have been reports of possessed people, cursed or haunted houses, which I have covered a lot of in my stories. I have also wrote about cursed dolls, but I am now going to tell you about some famous haunted, cursed, & possessed objects with some real documented video footage & photographs.

The Anguished Man:

haunted objects1.jpg

This picture was reputedly painted in a man’s blood, mixed with oil paint, just before he committed suicide. It is responsible for many paranormal occurrences in the owner’s home. Sean Robinson, from Cumbria, U.K, was left the painting by his grandmother after she passed away. When he was a boy, he felt drawn to the picture, which was hidden under curtains at his grandmother’s house. He would sit for some time just staring at the painting. When he brought the painting home, & after many arguments with his wife, he decided to hang the…

Ghost of George Washington Appears!

George Washington

Seeing a full-bodied apparition is extremely rare, but getting a photograph of one is extraordinary. This is like catching the big one. Anyone can say they saw a ghost, but photographing one is like finding the Holy Grail.

George Washington let himself be photographed for a reason.

I know. I asked him.

“Why did you show yourself like this?”

He responded: “SO PEOPLE SEE US.”

He’s giving validation – proof – that what I claim in Presidential Souls is true. I’m really communicating with the presidents and they are really with us.

And they’re supporting and hanging around me.

I had dinner at the Middleton Tavern in Annapolis, Maryland. I was celebrating a special night, but I also spoke to the manager about the Presidential Souls pre-launch reward:

$1000 A Visit to the Maryland State House and Lunch with the Author

Ghosts abound in the historic city of Annapolis, Maryland. The Maryland State House is the oldest state capitol in the country and the only state house that served as the Nation’s Capital. Enjoy a tour with the author then lunch (or dinner) at Middleton Tavern in Annapolis. Middleton Tavern was established in 1750 and hosted famous patrons such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. I’ll ask the ghosts to come out and play if you join me for a visit! I’ll identify your Celestial Hat and provide an autographed copy of Presidential Souls.

You’ll receive:
+A tour of the Maryland State House with the author
+Lunch (or dinner) at Middleton Tavern in historic Annapolis
+Your Celestial Hat reading
+An autographed print copy
+Bonus Exclusive eBook

I hadn’t even asked the ghosts to come out and play yet, so I was shocked at the early reveal! They’re so anxious for us to acknowledge them that they’re taking matters into their own hands.

Upon our arrival, we were seated at a table with pictures of George and Martha Washington looking down on us. Mentally, I said, “Hi George and Martha” and I was pleased that they were with us. I never expected to see the full form of George Washington!

After a fantastic dinner, I was ecstatic when the manager asked if I wanted to perform a paranormal investigation of the Middleton Tavern! There have been numerous paranormal occurrences at the tavern, so we made the arrangements and I told him I could feel the Spirits in the restaurant.

I didn’t see George Washington in the photograph until later that night. Normally, I don’t immediately download the photos from my IPhone, but despite the late hour, I felt compelled to do so. This is one of those moments when I realize later that I was being guided.

The photograph is of a black figure. You can see an outline on the head of what looks like a wig worn in colonial times. You can also see a triangular-shaped jacket collar, which is similar to the portrait. The black figure is transparent. You can see the outline of the picture frame and other items through the black figure.

I could see that this apparition was George Washington, but I also verified it with him. He is literally “coming out” to stress the message I’ve been giving, and I’ll keep giving.

The presidents came forward in Presidential Souls and they want you to hear what they have to say.

High-Flying Air Show Spirits

Blog 4

Spirits love to attend special events, but I never expected to see them at the Air Show.

Now I know better.

The Spirits surprised me with their presence at the 2015 Joint Base Andrews Air Show at Andrews Air Force Base.

Jolly Spirits laughed and waved their arms in glee while hanging out on top of the huge cargo planes by Hangar Two.

The giant planes possess a high Spirit attachment, but no sadness surrounded them on this day. The Spirits eagerly anticipated the air show and their joy was contagious.

Blog 3

Besides the happy Ghosts on the cargo planes, I received two additional unexpected visitors. Sid, my late father-in-law, appeared as I watched the World War II airplanes flying in the show. Sid was a retired Air Force Colonel and he began his career as a pilot on the airfield during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Sid has been gone for many years and I gratefully accepted his visit and reminder of his service.

He truly enjoyed watching the show.

Air Show 1A

The other ghostly attendee may be surprising to some, but due to information I recently received, it wasn’t a surprise to me.  I’ve been working with General Dwight D. Eisenhower and I’ve written a chapter about him in my book, Presidential Souls.

I know the secret as to why he was in attendance at the Air Show, which is revealed in the book.

Air Show 2

Despite being sunburned, hot and tired of waiting in the long bus line after the show, the smiling Spirits kept me entertained. They continued to party, perched on the giant planes, as they cheerfully waved goodbye.

The Air Show was a day to be remembered. Be comforted in knowing that your friends, loved-ones and fallen comrades were with you. They proudly watched the incredible Air Show and participated by cheering, waving and standing by your side.

Boardwalk Fries and Saltwater Spirits

Ocean City Boardwalk

    A busy summer beach resort, Ocean City, Maryland, is filled with a fabulous beach, a famous boardwalk and…

…ghosts.

   Robby and I recently went on the Ocean City Ghost Walk, where we were introduced to more than a few Spirits who still love to hang out at the beach.

 Robby took pictures during the tour and I pointed out highlights when I “felt” the Spirits. We were lucky enough to capture two Spirits in one of Ocean City’s most notorious haunts – the Atlantic Hotel.

IMGP1124

Dr. Charles Purnell is the principle Ghost-in-Residence at the Atlantic Hotel, but I believe there is also a woman hanging out with him. As soon as we approached the hotel, I told Robby I sensed a strong presence on the outside fire-escape stairs. He took pictures and we captured shots of a man and a woman in an old-fashioned bonnet. The pictures are not clear and easier to view from the original source, so I included outlines to point out the Spirits. The photos, though hard to see, back up the strong projected presence before we entered the hotel.

Outline of Spirit on Stairs

The Spirit in this picture could be Dr. Purnell. A man is walking up the stairs with his back is to us. He is not wearing a hat and I can make out a coat-sleeve and pants.  

Dr. Purnell is no doubt getting in place to prepare for our visit in his hotel.

Woman with Bonnet

Outline of Woman with Bonnet

This woman is on the same outside stairs. I probably sensed such a strong presence on the fire-escape because there were two Spirits. I can only make out the head of the woman, but she’s wearing an old-fashioned bonnet with a wide brim.  Perhaps she remains by the ocean, like the ladies pictured below, because she wants the blissful times at the Atlantic Hotel to continue forever.  

 1790beach (1)

During the tour we learned about Joanne Trimper and the Ocean City Trimper Carousel. The carousel is the oldest continuously operating carousel in the United States and Joanne loves it so much that she still remains by her favorite Carousel Horse. We learned that Joanne’s perfume scent, “Cristal”, lingers near her Carousel Horse, so we returned the next night to check it out.

IMG_2597

“Forever Joanne” Carousel Horse

Robby rode Joanne’s Carousel Horse and when he asked Joanne for a sign that she was near, a sweet scent momentarily drifted past him. Unfortunately, I have no sense of smell so I couldn’t experience the phenomenon, but the look on Robby’s face was genuine shock and surprise when he got the confirmation that he asked for.

Robby described the multitude of aromatic scents surrounding the Carousel and he said there was no one near us with anything resembling the sweet perfume. He said it happened in an instant – as if Joanne walked past him from the front of the horse to the back of the horse and continued past him, after which, the amusement park aromas returned without a trace of Joanne’s perfume.

Suspiciously fast, the perfume scent was there one second and gone the next. Robby was rewarded for riding Joanne’s Horse, even when the ride attendant warned him that Joanne’s Horse didn’t go up and down.

I’ll never forget Robby’s face when Joanne walked between us.

It was a ride I’ll never forget.

 

I highly recommend the Ocean City Ghost Walk, so if you get the chance, say Hello to…

…the Saltwater Spirits
