If you are planing to travel in the near future I suggest you go and visit a haunted place or two. It would certainly make for interesting vacation. There are many places that are open to the public so you can do your own exploring. Other places are well known museums or homes and castles that give tours. Below are a couple of links to articles about places that you might want to visit if you are in the area.

It is time for summer vacations and what better to spend it ghost hunting. Here is an interesting article on the haunted areas of Boston, Mass.  I didn’t know that Boston also had it’s share of witch trials back in the 1600’s. I guess the Salem witch trials were just so much more written about than other locations.

I had almost forgotten that I had this blog. I have not encountered any ghosts in the last 6 months so I had put the paranormal discussions on the back burner. I find it quite nice to not live in a haunted house anymore. Our last 2 residences had too much paranormal activity for my liking. Now I can choose to visit areas of paranormal activity at my leisure which is much more refreshing and interesting for me.

There is a reputed to be haunted lighthouse in Newport Oregon. I have been to the Yaquina Bay lighthouse and I did not have anything happen. The tale of the haunting first appeared in a newspaper around 1899. It tells of a teenage girl that was left in Newport by her sea fairing father and she was awaiting his return. The girl disappeared after exploring the old abandoned lighthouse. Not much has been written about the actual haunting itself. I have found another person’s story that also visited the lighthouse that tells much the same as my experience there. Her story is here.

Just because I believe and have seen ghosts it does not mean I am not Christian. So many of the websites for amulets, ghost facts and haunting info are tainted with Wicca. Religion of lack of has no bearing in the haunting that I have known of. I don’t think that any spirit will come up to you and inquire what your beliefs are before making their presence known. After all, how many burglars inquire about the income status of their victim before doing the deed. We contain human spirits before death and become human spirits after death. As to “evil” spirits they were once evil humans, no more demonic than the next evil human.

I spoke in an earlier post about protecting yourself form harm if you plan on doing any ghost hunting. Here is more on that subject. This time I will talk about amulets

An amulet, meaning “an object that protects a person from trouble”) or a talisman (from Arabic طلاسم tilasm, ultimately from Greek telesmaor from the Greek word “talein” which means “to initiate into the mysteries.”) consists of any object intended to bring good luck and/or protection to its owner. Potential amulets include: gems or simple stones, statues, coins, drawings, pendants, rings, plants, animals, etc.;

All faiths both Christian, pagan and non-Christian practise some form of amulet nurturing. Take for example wedding rings. In the Catholic church they are blessed with holy water and prayer to ensure a happy marriage. In most Christian faiths the wearing of the cross is thought to protect the wearer from evil or harm. Pagans have their own set of symbols. American Indians have many different types of amulets for protection. Click on the amulet links to find out more about amulets their use and types.

I am always amazed at the television ghost hunters. They look like they feel immune to any unearthly attacks they may have. Many psychics and even clergy will tell you that you need to have some sort of protection. That protection may come in the form of a “guardian angel”, a spirit guide, a trusted and personal saint, a passed on family member or what ever deity you worship. You need to have that protection in place BEFORE you go looking for trouble. Sometimes that protection finds you. If you have had any miracles happen in your life then whatever spirit you attribute that miracle to would be your “guardian”.

Unearthly attacks cannot only be physical but spiritual too. After an encounter you may have a personality change or become very depressed. This is due to your spirit being attacked. That is the time to call on your spiritual guide to help you and seek out others that are experienced in attacks on the spirit.

Ghost hunting is not something to be taken lightly.
