It’s Official! He’s Real!


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:


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!


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 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.

OuijaCon 2015

Ouijacon Blog 2


Last week I attended OuijaCon – an original convention honoring the 125th anniversary of the Ouija Board. Held in Baltimore, the city where the Ouija Board originated, the first full day of the event held plenty of surprises…

            …Haunted Keys, Demons and a Séance!


            I don’t work with the Ouija Board, so there was much to learn from the lectures, vendors and museum.

A vendor from Obscura Antiques and Oddities had a collection of old keys and as I conversed with the owner, the keys kept bothering me.  I felt compelled to say something, so I told the gentleman about the powerful energy emanating from the keys.

He surprised me when he said,

“You’re the third person to tell me that today.”

This confirmation told me that these keys were definitely haunted,

 so I moved on.

Haunted Keys

             As I strolled about the convention, I was approached by a Danish researcher and asked to participate in a Ouija Board eye-tracking study. After I was hooked up to the equipment with another volunteer, we proceeded to ask the Ouija Board questions for the study.

            Thankfully, I protected myself before the session, but unfortunately, my male partner was a newcomer to working with Spirit Boards,

and he didn’t.

            We found out about the Ouija Demon.

            During the session, the planchette kept spelling “A,Z,A,Z,A,Z”. It didn’t make sense to us, being Ouija novices, but at the conclusion of the session, the researcher told us about the Demon Zaza or Zozo.

            I told my partner how to protect himself and again…

            …I moved on.

            The evening ended with a séance guided by Chip Coffey.

About a hundred of us formed a circle and joined hands in an attempt to channel the creator of the Ouija name.

            The origin of the Ouija name is a mystery to this day.

            As a group, the strange noises, names and dark shadows didn’t lead to any definitive conclusions,

but I had a visitor.

Edgar Allan Poe

            Edgar Allan Poe is buried in Baltimore, but I hadn’t been thinking about him and I’ve never been to his grave. He came through to me as soon as the séance began and he told me that the Spirit (or Entity) who gave him his dark stories, was the same Spirit who invented the Ouija Board and was the creator of the Ouija name.

            I withheld this information from the group because I wanted to do some research before drawing any conclusions.

I later discovered the following:

Edgar Allan Poe died in 1849

Modern spiritualism began in 1848

(Poe was dying, so it needed a new outlet?)

The Ouija board is produced in Baltimore in 1890

          This doesn’t identify the Spirit’s name, but I find it interesting that it had an outlet in Edgar Allan Poe,

then moved on to create the Ouija Board.

The timeline fits with the information I was given.

Perhaps that’s why Edgar Allan Poe and the Ouija Board both have Baltimore in common.

            Even more chilling was the fact that the séance was held less than half a mile from Edgar Allan Poe’s gravesite! I didn’t know where it was before OuijaCon, but I know now.

            The events of the evening certainly gave me food for thought and made for a momentous initiation into the World of Ouija!

The Spirits Speak and They Say: “No Candy”!

Green Tray


I guess it’s not their fault.

I asked.

I had a few decorative items from my daughter’s wedding, but now they had no purpose.

I decided to try working with resin, so I re-purposed them and made three Spirit Boards.

Well, actually they’re Spirit Trays and a Spirit Vase.

Two are made from old silver trays. They both have “Yes” and “No” and the alphabet, and the blue tray has numbers.

Blue Tray

This one is made from a crazy vase that my grandmother gave me. It has three monkeys: Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil and See No Evil. I turned it into a Spirit Vase with a Dragon Eye center.

Monkey Framed 2

After I finished, I decided to try them out. I work with a pendulum regularly, but usually I ask yes or no questions.

I needed a question that required the answer to be spelled out, so I asked,

“How can I raise my metabolism and lose weight?”

The holidays did their usual damage and I needed to lose a few pounds.

The pendulum clearly spelled out,

“No Candy”


I keep a bowl of candy on the kitchen table and every night I’d have a piece or two.

Just leftover Christmas candy. Hardly significant.

The Spirits were brutal.

I guess it was time to give up the candy.

The Spirit Boards worked.

A Message From My Father


A Message from My Father

You never know what to expect from the Other Side. For example, when you ask for a message, it might not come from the source that you expected, so you need to be open to alternate forms of communication.

The best case scenario at a group reading is that you get a direct message from the Other Side, in this case, from Kelly Schloer – a gifted psychic and medium.

Unfortunately, everyone doesn’t get chosen in a group reading, so it’s a loss. Right?


There could be a variety of reasons for not getting a direct message. Perhaps the recipients of the direct messages had a greater need for healing. Their Spirit relatives and Guides were given priority that day.

Perhaps the people in attendance were not all “Believers” and they needed a direct message to convince them that their loved ones were truly with them.

Perhaps the Spirits who came through were stronger and able to push their way to the front of the line!

For whatever reason, if you go to a group reading, you need to pay attention because you could still get a message from the Other Side, like I did.

As I was listening to the messages, my hearing perked up when Kelly spoke to someone and I felt as if it was a message for me too. I asked myself, “Is it my imagination, or were they talking to me?”

Later, Kelly explained to the group that if she didn’t speak to you directly, you could still have received a message that was also meant for you.


Okay, I was convinced that the message was for me, but there was one more sign to come that would seal the deal.

We were at an Elks Lodge and there was a large wall of member photos. During the several hours that I sat in the meeting hall, I was continually drawn to one particular photo. The man didn’t look familiar, yet I kept being drawn to him. He had a black ribbon on his photo, so I assumed that he’d passed. I made a mental note to look at the name when the meeting ended as I was too far away, but when the meeting ended, I forgot and left.

It was cold and late and I had a long drive ahead of me, so I just wanted to get home. As I started the car, I remembered the photo and I wished that I had looked at the name.

It didn’t matter. I knew what name I’d find. I started to drive away, but I had a nagging feeling that I still needed to verify what I already knew. I turned around, braved the cold again and went back to the meeting hall.

As I suspected, the name on the photo was Don.

My father’s name was Donald and he went by Don.

I needed no more proof and I finally headed for home. I had received the message that I was looking for and it was verified, so I was happy.

Thanks Dad. Message received, loud and clear!

A Wedding Call from the Other Side

photo (2)

We were waiting in the Bridal Suite. The wedding was due to begin in a few hours.

The Wedding Party was outside with the photographer.

It was just myself (Mother-of-the-Bride), my husband (Bride’s father) and the Groom’s mother who witnessed the call.

My husband’s cell phone rang and we heard him say,


“I think you have the wrong number.”

“Who is this?”

I asked him who called and he said it was an older lady and she said her name was Laura.

My maternal grandmother’s name was Laura.

Without the slightest hesitation I told my husband, “It was Grandma DeVore.”

He didn’t argue, in fact, he said it sounded like her. This was an astounding thing for him to say.

She died in 2003.

My husband is a believer, but it has to be pretty convincing evidence. He sat and thought about it, then he looked at the number and asked me to Google the area code to see where the call was from.

I gasped as I told him that it was a Pennsylvania area code.

My grandmother was from Pennsylvania.

A wrong number…an older lady saying her name was Laura…a Pennsylvania area code…on her Great-Granddaughter’s Wedding Day?

There was no doubt about it. This was a call from the Other Side.

My Grandmother was letting us know that she was with us on this joyous occasion.

Thank you Grandma.

I’m so happy you were there.
