A Visit to a Haunted Graveyard

A few years ago, right before Halloween, a few friends and I decided to take a drive to an old historic city about an hour away from where we live.

There is so much history in this town, and this particular night we had paid for tickets to have a ghost tour around the city.

The Adventure Began

We all met up for dinner and headed to the town for a fun night. I remember being so excited and not sure what to expect. Having had a lot of paranormal experiences in my life, I knew that I was bound to experience something!

We arrived and were greeted by individuals dressed in a costume that reflected older eras. The feel of this town was the perfect place for a ghost tour with the old houses and sidewalks that seemed never-ending. The night was chilly, and it was dark minus some lampposts and some twinkling stars.

The Tour

There were so many people there that night, we were all split up into groups and assigned a tour guide that would be with us for the remainder of the night as we walked around and discovered what this haunted town had to offer.

We started the tour with an introduction story by the fire as we were given an overview of what our tour would entail and some brief history of the town. The stories of what occurred here gave me the creeps and I was scared yet eager to experience all that I could in this town.

We Walked for Miles

Our haunted adventure was by foot, so we walked for miles as we checked out different historic sites, buildings, and even a graveyard.

I remember walking into a very old house that was said to have a lot of paranormal activity. It dated back over a hundred years ago. Our tour guide gave us information on the history of the home and what had occurred there.

He then told us about the many ghost sightings, footsteps, and ghostly apparitions that have been witnessed by countless people there. Given that I am very sensitive to energy, I can pick up on the presence of spirits, I can feel them just as if another human being was in the room with me.

We proceeded to walk down the dark sidewalks. I felt safe because there was a large group of people with us, but the atmosphere was incredibly eerie and set the tone for this adventure.

Next Up

As we walked further, our guide took us to a candy store that was haunted by a ghost that makes her presence known almost daily. We spent time looking at all of the delicious candies and even bought some! While at the register, the lady was telling me all that she experiences daily with this spirit. I recall her telling me that the spirit makes loud noises, moves things around, and hears footsteps often. I picked up on very strong energy in this building, it made my skin crawl. I’m not sure how this lady was able to work there daily!

Close to the candy store was a graveyard that was said to house many spirits, one of which has been seen peeking through a window and staring into the cemetery. I recall a very unfortunate story that our guide was talking about. Some traumatic events led to the death of some of the people buried at this cemetery.

The energy was palpable, and I don’t think that there was even a minute inside of this graveyard that I didn’t have goosebumps. I started feeling overwhelmed as I picked up on one energy after another. My friends and I decided to take pictures in the cemetery as part of the memories of our fun and scary adventure in this old town…big mistake!

The Proof Was in the Photos

I do not have any doubt in my mind that ghosts exist. I grew up in two haunted homes and I have had many experiences with my departed loved ones that have sent me signs and manipulated items around the room etc. to show us that they are still with us. There is no question in my mind that there is a very beautiful life that awaits us after this one.

The energy was very palpable in this town. I could just feel their presence around me. One of our friends in the group had never experienced anything paranormal, he was very skeptical, and even though he felt off, he was in denial and frightened. He just kept saying that what he felt wasn’t pleasant. He was a believer after this trip.

The photos that we took in the graveyard came out very shocking. There were orbs and streaks of light, there were areas of fog, there were images that looked like faces, and by far the scariest part was that our faces and bodies were severely distorted. It was as if the ghosts were standing right in front of us. I have deleted the photos where our faces were distorted because I found them to be very disturbing.

Question for You

I wanted to share this story with you in light of October, spooky season, and Halloween coming up. It is an experience that I will never forget, not only because it was so fun, but because it was just truly amazing to have even more proof than I already do that there is something that awaits us after this life.

Have you ever had a paranormal experience? I would love to hear about any ghost stories that you may have!


My Grandmother’s Near-Death Experience (NDE)

My grandmother, who sadly is no longer with us, was my whole life. I adored her so much and I valued our relationship beyond words. She shared a story with me many years ago about a near-death experience (NDE) that she had when she was younger.

My grandmother was a loving, encouraging, and wise woman. She was a beautiful soul and a bright light in my life. I miss her every single day. I am blessed and thankful that I get signs from her all the time. We are still connected, even though she is departed.

Some of my favorite moments were with my grandma. We used to cook, watch our favorite shows together, and share stories. I used to love to hear her stories, she had a very interesting life, and I was intrigued by all that she had to share. We were sitting on the couch together one day and she told me about a near-death experience that she had.

My grandma was at a hospital being prepped for a major surgery. The staff did their routine checks and then administered general anesthesia; my grandma was then wheeled to the operating room. The doctors worked diligently as she lay on the operating table.

I was sitting on the edge of my seat and nervous about what my grandmother was going to say next. She told me that after a while into the procedure, she started to bleed profusely. The doctors had an extremely hard time stopping the large amounts of blood from escaping her body. My grandmother said that she didn’t remember anything going on due to the anesthesia, until she “died.”

The doctors frantically tried to save her, but the blood loss was so great, that shortly afterward, my beloved grandmother was pronounced “dead.” Blood loss this great is one of the risks of surgery, although considered extremely rare.

My grandmother recalls the hospital staff standing over her body, panicked at what just happened. She recalls the medical staff saying that she had “died” and she remembers them working over her body tirelessly trying to bring her back to life.

In the meantime, as doctors hover over her, she said that she could see and hear them, but she was not able to respond. She was instantly overcome with the most beautiful sense of peace and happiness. My grandmother said that she felt warm and safe and was just overcome with a rush of joy. She had never experienced such bliss here on Earth, she said it was something so beautiful and magical that it was beyond what we are even capable of feeling and understanding.

My grandma recalls a bright white light that she referred to as a “ball.” This bright light brought her overwhelming joy, and she followed it higher and higher. She remembers stairs and someone standing at the top of the stairs welcoming her.

I remember my grandmother smiling at this moment because she recalls what it felt like and it was pure bliss. She said that she felt so light and free, it was a feeling that she could not get enough of.

As she approached this figure standing at the top of the steps, she recalls the figure telling her that this is not her time and that she must go back to earth. Instantaneously, she remembers experiencing a very strong pulling sensation, almost as if she were being pulled very strongly back down to earth.

Grandma remembers not wanting to leave this new beautiful dimension that she reached. The downward pull was too strong, and she was reminded that she was still needed here on earth. She ended up coming to in the operating room and lived many years later to tell her story.

My grandmother never feared death and her experience of this only solidified her feelings even more. She knew one day that she would be able to feel the pure joy and happiness that came with this experience and that she was going to enjoy all that she had here on earth, every moment that was given to her.

While I have not had an NDE, I have had many experiences with the afterlife including experiences with ghosts and getting countless signs and messages from my departed loved ones.

There is no doubt in my mind that there is another life after the one that we live here on earth. NDEs, ghosts, and other paranormal experiences only further prove that even when our bodies are no longer living, our souls are transported to a place more beautiful than we can comprehend.

Have you or anyone you know ever had an NDE? I would love to hear your stories and experiences!

A Message For Me

The world around us is in constant communication with us. If we take time to notice, there are signs and messages meant for us to discover. Some messages are blatantly obvious and others are more subtle, but each are important to us as we navigate through life.

For over six months now, I have seen 11:11 on the clock at least once, but sometimes twice a day. This number I have always referred to as the “make a wish” number, but it wasn’t until I started seeing it all the time that I learned of another possible meaning. Apparently the numbers 11:11 are strongly connected to the spiritual world and when seen, are a sign that you are on the right life path. I of course was happy to hear this! The interesting thing is that now I am aware of this, one would think that I would stop seeing 11:11, however I don’t, it doesn’t stop no matter how busy I am, it’s still there. Maybe I have not discovered its full meaning, or maybe it’s merely a strange coincidence.

Some of you may not believe in these sorts of messages, everyone is different, but for those of you that do, are there any other meanings of 11:11 that you know of? Have you ever received a message from Above that drew your attention? Please feel free to share!

Paranormal: Life Beyond

For most of us, we go about our daily lives not thinking about the inevitable, unless we know of someone who is sick or who has passed away, we don’t typically think of death. We all have different views about what happens to our souls after we pass away. For me, I believe that when we die we go to Heaven. I truly believe that there is a life beyond anything that we can begin to understand waiting for us. I’ve always believed this to be true, but have an even deeper understanding of this since having many paranormal experiences from childhood that still continue to this day.

As a child, I grew up in two homes that had a spirit inside. I was scared out of my mind being a child and not being aware of why this was happening to me. The spirits were thankfully good ones, but scared me nonetheless. I recall times where I could hear breathing and footsteps, things would fly off of the counter, the TV would turn on and off all by itself, sometimes many times in a row as if it were trying to make its presence known. There was just an energy in these homes that was enough to give someone chills. Although these experiences created an immense amount of anxiety for me as a child, now that I am an adult those experiences are actually rather comforting and uplifting knowing that life on Earth is not the end of our existence. I always knew that life did not stop here, however having actually experiencing it just furthers my beliefs.

I have unfortunately lost several people that I was extremely close to and having experiences after their passing has given me so much peace and reassurance that one day we will all be reunited with our loved ones. Again, you may have different beliefs and I absolutely respect that, I am just sharing my experiences and how I feel on this subject. Please feel free to comment below if you have had any paranormal experiences from beyond!
