Where Can I Go Ghost Hunting

Sach's Bridge Gettysburg PA
 Alot of people want to know where they can go ghost hunting. Well the easiest way to find out is to use the internet. Just type in google something like where can I go ghost hunting in where ever you live. Sometimes the ghost hunting is limited to seasons like October right around Halloween time. That time of the year just makes it that much spookier.
 So what I just did was type in google ghost hunting in Rochester NY and there are all kinds of places to go. One in fact is in East Bethany NY. It is at Rolling Hills Asylum and it looks spooky.  It seems as though they have things going on all year round. If you are just looking for a place to go during the warmer weather there are plenty of cemeteries around where you could walk around, take pictures and do some evp work. Just make sure nothing or no one follows you home.
 If strange things seem to be going on in your own home you could do the same thing. I would just be very careful, because you don't want to open a door and let something in that you certainly don't want. Another idea is you could make a ghost hunting vacation. In other words pick a place you would like to go and then look up on the internet all the places in that area that may have some kind of ghost hunting going on. One more thought would be to check out facebook and twitter for any ghost hunting groups.

             


Thanks For Stopping By And Happy Ghost Hunting !!!!

Tools For Ghost Hunting

 First of all before I say anything about ghost hunting tools I would like to say something. That something is be very careful what you do. You see the problem is you don't always know who you are dealing with. It is very possible that you are dealing with an evil entity and they may have alot of power over you. If you have ever read the bible you would find in Deuteronomy Chapter 18, Verse 9 to 14 that we are not to speak with spirits. There are many other places in the Bible where it is forbidden to speak with spirits, so if you are interested you can go to many different sites on the internet where you can read the Bible. My advise is check it out before you get in over your head.

             Deuteronomy Chapter 18, Verse 9 to 14

When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee, beware lest thou have a mind to imitate the abominations of those nations. 10 Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter, making them to pass through the fire: or that consulteth soothsayers, or observeth dreams and omens, neither let there be any wizard,11 Nor charmer, nor any one that consulteth pythonic spirits, or fortune tellers, or that seeketh the truth from the dead. 12For the Lord abhorreth all these things, and for these abominations he will destroy them at thy coming. 13 Thou shalt be perfect, and without spot before the Lord thy God. 14 These nations, whose land thou shalt possess, hearken to soothsayers and diviners: but thou art otherwise instructed by the Lord thy God.

 Okay so if you are going to pursue your quest of going Ghost Hunting you will need some tools. These tool can detect the presence of something. Some of them may just detect a change in temperature. There are other tools that may detect a change in a magnetic field. Other tools may be various cameras like night vision cameras or various types of cameras. Another good piece of equipment to have is a good digital recorder. There are many times that we don't hear the spirit, because they are apparently on a different frequency then we normally hear at. These would be used to record what is known as an evp or electronic voice phenomena.

      

 Now there are other tools you can use and some of them can be very expensive. For example recorders that detect changes in temperature and can record it in video. I have also seen where someone throws a laser pattern down a hallway to make it easier to detect movement. I would also make sure to have more than one piece of these types of equipment, because apparently the spirits can render things useless by interfering with them or draining the life out of the batteries. So make sure you have plenty of extra batteries.

      

 My other advise is never go on any ghost hunting adventure alone. You see there is strength in numbers. That strength is also in what you believe. The more people that believe in God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit stand a better chance at being safe. The other important reason is for safety reasons. In other words if some one is hurt you can take care of that person. Remember generally you are walking around in the pitch dark and it is very easy to trip of fall over something. So by all means stay safe.
 I would definitely get some books on Ghost Hunting written by the professionals before embarking on a ghost hunting adventure. There are many different groups around that go ghost hunting. So I would also look into that and find a group to join. My final advise before doing any of this is to talk with a priest, because he can give you advise and answers that you may no find. Remember is is better to be safe than sorry.

One More Of My Families Ghost Stories

 I have one more of my families Ghost Stories to talk about. This one is probably the most recent I have heard from anyone. Although my older brother has told me how he goes to look for something and he can not find it. Then later on when he is not looking for it he finds whatever it is. The strange thing is that it is back in the place where he was looking for it in the first place. His first wife did pass away very young, but not in the house he is living in. So I don't know if it is her or maybe a person that lived in the old house he is in. He has said that he gets the feeling sometimes that someone is watching him.
 Okay back to the most current spooky story I have heard. This is at my cousins house that they recently moved in to. Apparently my cousin said she was sitting in her living room watching television when she saw a man walk through the living room and walked right up the stairs to the upper floor. She called her son and told him what she saw. He at one time was a police officer, so he was used to checking out areas.
Well he went up the stairs to find the person.
 Well he went up stairs and looked all over the place. He could not find anyone in the house. It was only my cousin and her son. Her husband was not there at this time as he was at work. Well apparently there have been a few other times when my cousin has seen the same man walk through the living room and into a bedroom where my Aunt sleeps when she is visiting her. The is making her very uncomfortable. This ghostly figure never says anything and never harms anyone. I just wonder if this is more of a residual haunting, where it is merely a recording in time somehow and it just plays over and over.
 I have not heard if my cousin has experienced any other odd events in this house. She has not decided to sell the house so everything must be okay. Maybe she could contact Ghost Hunters and have them check out the house. I also have not heard of any past things that may have happened in that house or if anyone had passed away in the house. I guess only time will tell.

Family Ghost Stories


 Everyone at some point in their life has heard a spooky story passed down. Well I remember a few things that happened with my aunt and uncle. You see my aunt and uncle were going to buy this big old house in Churchville  Chili New York quite a few years ago. The house always seemed a little spooky to me. All the rooms in the upper part interconnected with no hallways. There was a back hallway that led to one bedroom, attic door with a heavy spring to keep it closed and the back stairway to the kitchen.
 My Aunt was sitting on the bed folding cloths when the attic door opened up slowly and then closed. She thought one of her kids were playing a joke, so went over to the door and looked for a string that may have opened it. She found nothing, so she went up to the attic and found no one either. She went down the back stairway and all the kids were playing a board game in the kitchen. All of the kids were all there, so there was no way that one could have got there before her.
 There were other strange events that took place in that house as well. My Grandmother was living with them at the time and had her bedroom set up in the front living room. One night she was awakened for some reason and when she looked up she saw what looked like a hooded figure staring at her. She thought it was my uncle and said what do you need chuck. Whatever or whoever it was did not answer her. She turned on her light and put her glasses on to see better, but it was gone. She called out to my aunt and uncle to see it was something they needed. They said no neither of them were down there.
 There were other strange things that happened there as well. They would hear what sounded like voices crying in the night. They described it like they were hearing babies crying in the night. Another strange event was just before they decided to buy the house they found out that they only owned half of the huge swimming pool and not the cabana. The property lone actually went through the middle of the pool. They also found a place where in the basement slaves had been hidden. Apparently this house had been part of the underground railroad in the days of slavery.
 Well my aunt and uncle decided not to buy the house and moved out. I found out that later another family bought the house . The family went away and the house burned out on the inside. They determined that a butane torch had been left on and that caused the fire in the basement. I have driven by there on a few occasions and that big old house is still there. I am got going anywhere near it.

Spooky Stories I Have Had

 Okay so here is another one of my spooky stories from when I was young. We lived with my Grandparents for quite a few years when my brothers and I were kids. The house was not too big, so my bothers and I slept in the same room. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and I thought my younger brother was standing up in the end of his crib looking at me.
 You see his crib and my bed were end to end. I remember looking up and seeing what looked like a small dark shadow. I kept saying Fred lay down and go back to sleep. Well Fred did not answer me, so I got up and took a better look. It was the size of my younger brother, but did not answer me. I went to touch him and get him to lay back down. To my amazement my hand went right through the shadow. You can guess it I was pretty scared. I laid back down and covered my head until the morning. I woke up and everything was back to normal. I asked my brother why he did not lay down and he said he did not do that.
 I went and told my Grandmother and Mother about what happened. They said it was probably nothing and said don't worry about it. I spoke to my Grandmother about a photograph of a young boy and a small dog. I had been looking through he old photograph when I saw this. My Grandmother explained that it was her little boy Jackie that had died when he was just a little boy. He apparently ate some dirty snow and it made him very sick and he passed away. I have always wondered to this day if that was his spirit I saw.

Seen A Ghost Lately


Lincolns Ghost
In the past few years the paranormal has seen a number of different shows on cable tv about ghosts. I love watching the Ghost Hunters show on the syfy network. Some of the episodes I am not to sure of mainly because they will say did you see that, but nothing shows up on the television. On the other hand they have seen and heard things that did get caught and you just can't explain it. It just makes you wonder what is going on in this world lately.
 Of course if you have any religious background then you know that there is life after death. Now do we go around on this earth doing things like in the ghost movie with Patrick Swayze ? Well it's not up to me to answer that one. I tend to leave that up to God, because he has the final decision on that one. Now some of the things I have seen and read about indicate that some things are just recordings in time somehow. I believe that this is possibly true, because we have learned how to record things on various media, so why can't certain elements come together in nature and do the same recording.
 Okay so I think we all have had various ghostly things happen in our life at some point. In fact I remember shortly after my Grandfather passed away my brothers and I would have to go over and check the oil tank in the basement. Well my older brother went over one week and I went over the next week. I was standing on the outdoor step at the back door and I happened to look into the living room window. I saw what looked like a white mist move through the living room. It happened to be right where he passed away in his favorite rocking chair. Well I brushed it off and went down in the basement and check the oil tank.
 While I was checking the oil tank I heard what sounded like foot steps in the living room above. I was scared and finished what I was doing and got out of there. When I got home I started to tell my older brother and he stopped me and said let me tell you what I saw. To my amazement he told me the exact same thing. Well fortunately my Grandmother sold the house and moved away. Was it my Grandfathers spirit looking for my Grandmother ? The only reason I wonder is because my Grandmother said when he passed away he yelled out her name and he was gone.
 I do have some more spooky ghost stories of my family and friends that I will tell in later posts. I may also write some posts on other spooky things in the paranormal and how it may relate to the current events in this world.
 Thank You for stopping by and leave a spooky story of your own if you like.
