The Spirits of Summer

Where did the summer go?

School is in full swing and our schedules have become frighteningly hectic.

Spirits don’t scare me.

Trying to find more hours in a day – now that’s scary!

We didn’t get to the next investigation yet, so I’m featuring some investigation highlights.

There were Angels and Mists and so much more! The evidence has been awe-inspiring and I feel as if a whole new Universe has opened up for me. I believed before, but now I know there is so much more than I could possibly have imagined.

We still plan on doing the St. John’s Cemetery investigation next, so here’s hoping that time will stand still and the Spirits will come out to play with us!

Ellicott City’s Chocolate Vortex

We had a special request this week to investigate Ligon Road in Ellicott City. It seems that a high number of residents on Ligon Road have been victims of cancer.

Could there be a supernatural explanation for this phenomenon?

Robby and I set off to investigate Ligon Road.

As soon as we turned onto the street, we felt a strong energy. Robby said at once that this was the location of an Energy Vortex.

An Energy Vortex is a swirling center of energy coming out of the earth. The energy on Ligon Road and the surrounding area was exceptionally strong.

Since this was a residential street, I didn’t want to take pictures of private residences and properties so I didn’t have any pictures, but we did get some remarkable readings.

As soon as we turned onto Ligon Road, the KII meter started going crazy. The KII meter does not go off lightly and we were getting readings in the red along the entire road. I made a circle by going onto Frederick Road, then going several streets over and circling back several times and each time the KII meter spiked many times, only on Ligon Road.

Then there was the Chocolate Factory smell.

On one pass, I stopped the car to get some readings. Robby started sniffing and said it smelled like a Chocolate Factory. I have no sense of smell (thanks to a battle with meningitis as a baby), so I couldn’t confirm this strange occurrence, but Robby said it was overpowering and smelled delicious! We had the windows rolled up in the car, so we rolled them down thinking that perhaps someone was doing some baking, but when we put the windows down, the smell stopped.

On all of the other passes that we made on Ligon Road, Robby never smelled the Chocolate Factory again, so it couldn’t have been coming from one of the homes.

As we drove around, I felt drawn to the street on the other side of Ligon Road and the energy actually grew stronger.

It wasn’t long before I started feeling strange and Robby felt sick, so we had to leave.

Ligon Orb 2

Tree Orb

We were close to Whipps Cemetery, so we stopped in for a short visit. The tranquility of Whipps helped to ground us and I captured a few Orb photos. We felt revived and back to normal in no time at all.

As we were leaving Whipps, I was facing Robby and taking pictures at his direction (he had the Ghost Radar), so I was looking at him and he wasn’t moving. I heard footsteps behind me and I whispered to Robby that maybe the Caretaker was here. Robby asked me what I was talking about. I turned around, but no one was there and Robby hadn’t heard anyone. I clearly heard someone walking on the mulch pathway behind me and I expected to find someone when I turned around.

There was no one.

Our findings are that the area around Ligon Road has a powerful energy, but I don’t feel that it is harmful or bad in any way. The Chocolate Factory smell tells me that the energy is good – just like you would welcome a visit to a Chocolate Factory! The energy extends to Whipps Cemetery, which is why we had so many amazing paranormal happenings on our prior visit. (See the Angel Garden or Alien Sanctuary post). Perhaps the energy is too strong for some people to handle and it can become harmful, but I don’t think it is intentional, if that is the case.

Ligon Road is named after Thomas Watkins Ligon who lived from 1810 to 1881. He was the 30th Governor of Maryland, a Congressman for Maryland and a President of the Patapsco Female Institute. He was buried at the St. John’s cemetery, which is across the street from Ligon Road.

I think this means that our next investigation should be to check out Mr. Ligon and the St. John’s Cemetery.

Ligon Mist

This looks like a mist and something was trying to form. I’m not sure what it is, but it’s something!

Words From the Other Side:

Perfect Mark Cowboy Japanese Eaten Jeff Or Dirt Guide Pleasure Principal Constant Nose Character Main Research Hello Fought Common Tribe Chemical

Perfect is the word that describes Ellicott City. People from all over the world have travelled here, and many have been drawn to make this beautiful city their home. Mark was a cowboy who settled here with his Japanese wife. Their Inn became a popular travel destination and their guests raved that the meals were the finest that they had ever eaten. Jeff, or the famous “Dirt Guide“, claimed that his greatest pleasure was when he travelled to Ellicott City and stayed at the renowned Inn.

The Principal of the Patapsco Female Institute was a constant visitor to the Inn. He had a nose for good food and wine and he relished the fine character of Main Street’s Inn.  He claimed to be doing research for his students cooking classes and his hearty “Hello” was as regular as the noon school bell. He fought rumors that there was a woman who drew him to the Inn, but the simple truth was that it was the food, company and ambiance that he loved so much. His presence was so common that upon his death, a local Indian tribe declared his usual seat at the Inn to be sacred ground.

Ellicott City’s attraction is like a chemical reaction that can’t be denied.

Just like a kid in a Chocolate Factory!

The Next Investigation:

St. John’s Cemetery

Angel Garden or Alien Sanctuary? How About Both!

Nestled amongst a beautiful community on St. John’s Lane in Ellicott City, the Whipps Garden Cemetery is a one-acre sanctuary full of life.

Started in 1855, it was used as a cemetery until the early 1900’s. When the cemetery became inactive, it was overgrown, damaged and nearly destroyed, until it was saved and restored in 1987. There are a variety of native plant species, pathways, benches and old tombstones making it a garden paradise.

But plants aren’t the only thing alive in this garden!

Rob and I could feel the energy before we got out of the car. What we found left me speechless.

During the investigation, Rob said he felt as if someone had their hand on his heart. When we reviewed the pictures I found…

Man and Rob

That is my father looking down on Robby. It is my father’s brow, nose and mouth.

My father. He was the one holding his hand on Robby’s heart.

In a few days it will be the anniversary of my father’s death. Coincidence? I don’t believe in them.

My father was the Angel, then I found the Alien. Here’s what happened.

I took this picture…

Arms and Figure

On the left it looks like arms and a head tilted to the right. On the right it looks like a small Alien.

I couldn’t figure out who these two were, so I went back the next night and tried to take the same picture. I didn’t have much time and I was getting ready to give up finding the exact spot when – Plop! A huge raindrop fell on the top of my head. It hadn’t rained in eight hours. I looked up and realized that I was in the right spot. It was as if they smacked me on the top of the head to make me see.

I took a picture and I couldn’t believe what I saw. Remember, this was the next day, in the same spot…

Figure 1

Cat Alien

So I said, “Did I really see that?” And I took another picture in the same spot, and I got…

Figure B

Cat Alien Orb

It was as if they were saying, “Duh!” The Cat Alien was still there, but this time there was an Orb at his feet.

Then I asked, “What about the figure with the arms?” I took another picture in the same spot. The Cat Alien was gone, but now there was an Orb where the figure with the arms was.

Arms Orb 1

Arms Figure Orb

I then asked for a picture with no Cat Alien, no Arms Figure and no Orbs to show that they were really there, and I took another picture and…

They were all gone.

An Angel, an Alien, and still we got more.

This was a face that was in one of the collection boxes. I went back the next night and took the same picture, but there was no face and no way that I could recreate it.

There there’s the Kneeling Man.

I went back the next night and I found that the “body” is a bench, but the way that the man’s head is tilted, and considering the other amazing encounters in this garden, I believe this is a man kneeling in the cemetery.

Then there is this Tombstone Spirit. He’s just hanging out as he rises out of the tombstone…

And more Orbs…

Orb 2

This is a very light Orb, to the left of the yellow flower, but it was one of three Orbs in one picture.

The KII meter was going off the entire investigation like we’ve never seen – flashing red and going crazy, and the Ghost Radar was talking up a storm.

The Whipps Garden Cemetery is truly a wondrous place that I heartily recommend.

You will be enchanted with all of the life, both Earthly and from the Other Side.

The Next Investigation:

Robby and I will be on vacation next week, but we’ll continue to explore and investigate. It won’t be in Ellicott City, but it will be in Maryland.

Do Angels Hang Out in Cemeteries?

Of course they do, and I have a picture to back up that claim.

St. Mary’s Cemetery is on Ilchester Road in Ellicott City. It was established in 1894 so it is rich with history. The size of the cemetery is small now, but it used to occupy over three acres.   In the early 1990’s a developer bought the property intending to build homes, but a preservation society was able to save approximately one-third of the original cemetery.

This is where we conducted our investigation. Records indicate that there are graves that aren’t marked with headstones because the people were slaves or poor, so besides the few tombstones at St. Mary’s Cemetery, there could be unmarked graves.

The Ghost Radar started talking before we even got out of the car. We got the name “Danny”, so we decided to look for the name Danny on the tombstones.

We located him fairly quickly. At the top of a large obelisk-shaped tombstone was the name: “Daniel C. 1915 – 1915”  As I was taking a picture of the tombstone, I couldn’t imagine the pain and suffering that Danny’s parents underwent. Daniel was at the top of the headstone, then beneath him was his brother, who had lived to be three years old, and beneath them were twins, who also died in infancy like Daniel.

Here was the grave of four babies from one family, and this is where I captured the picture of an angel holding a baby.   If you look closely, you can see the baby’s eyes and mouth and the side profile of a female angel holding him.

As Robby and I left the cemetery that day, I waved good-bye to the spirits and yelled out of the car window, “Bye! See you guys tomorrow!” I could feel a crowd of smiling spirits waving back and I could feel their joyous anticipation over our promised visit.

The first visit was during the day so we returned the next evening after dark. I felt welcomed and the spirits were eager to talk to us. Someone was a doctor who was either from India or had visited India. The word “Engineer” came through. With Ellicott City’s historic railroad this could easily be someone associated with the railroad.

Another dog was mentioned, or could it have been George Bolton again? He was just a short distance down the road so perhaps he was afraid that we’d forgotten about him!

Not a chance George.

The pictures that night were filled with orbs.  Some of these orbs could be bugs or dust, and most were opaque, but one orb stood out and was brighter and more brilliant than all the rest.

These are the spirits of St. Mary’s Cemetery. They are located very near our house so it was wonderful getting to know them and it’s nice to know that we have such friendly neighbors!

Danny Operation Model Morning Gray Mars Build Sky Flame Weren’t Grown Engineer Cloud

Mail Far Mighty Dog Famous Quick Equally Doctor India Clearly Observe Plan Mississippi

Danny’s Story

I like the name Danny. I wasn’t crazy about the whole birthing operation and I was far from being called a model patient, but I arrived in the early morning under gray skies. Mars was still shining on the horizon as my father attempted to build a fire to chase away the chill in the air. The sky soon filled with ashes from the flame climbing up the chimney, but we weren’t worried about the fire.

It was strong, but I wasn’t.

Like my brothers and sister before me, I would soon follow them to the Other Side.

If I had grown up, I would have been an Engineer. I could see myself driving a powerful steam engine leaving a cloud of smoke as I delivered cargo, passengers and mail to far-away lands. I’d have a mighty dog who traveled with me and we’d become famous for our quick trips across the country.  Equally famous would be my best friend, who was a doctor in India.

Clearly, these things didn’t happen, but I still observe this world and I still dream.

My plan was to leave my brief mark on this world. Next time I think I’ll stay a little longer, maybe I’ll try Mississippi….

The Next Investigation

Next week we will be investigating the remains of the Orange Grove Flour Mill.
