Ghost Stories

Posted on September 10th, 2010 by Jean

After tucking the children into bed at night, I sneak to my room and watch an hour of Celebrity Ghost Stories, Ghost Hunters International, or Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal.
 
If you get a chance to hear celebrity Sammy Hagar‘s tales, tune in. He’s so mellow as his stories unfold. Or listen to Ghost Hunter Barry Fitzgerald‘s thick Irish accent as he respectfully requests the presence of ghosts. Tis lovely. Paranormal kids are in good hands with no-nonsense psychic, Chip Coffey.
 

 
I wish shows like these had been around when I was younger! Growing up, I experienced so much paranormal activity I thought I was haunted.
 
Here is my homage to Celebrity Ghost Stories. I call it Blogger Ghost Stories.
 

 
• Do you watch televised ghost shows?
• Do you have a haunting to share?
• Would you ever investigate a haunted domicile?
• Have you ever looked in a mirror and seen something unexpected?

    I love you too.
    Don’t feel too badly.
    The sceptic in wonders how a vet could make that diagnosis.

  2. I’m always having spooky things happen. I went & bought some sage so I could clear out my house in case any of it is evil:)
    Last night I was in the kitchen & I saw the usual black “presence” that I see a lot. Usually its down near the baseboards, last night it was along the bottom of the windows. Then again, I had a terrible migraine all day today, so who knows. Maybe it was an indicator for a migraine?
    I have family that are ghost hunters in So Cal. They go allover. I keep trying to get them to come up to Prescott. There are tons of cool ghost stories up there! In fact, I have been wanting to do a blog about this little girl That people see near Lynx Creek, where my inlaws lived.
    Spooky, Jean!
    Hands off Sammy, he’s mine! LOL

  3. Lisa, you are seeing a shadow person. I hope the sage works.
    That’s so cool to have a family of ghost hunters. Let me know if they come to Prescott! I’d love to meet them and hear stories.
    Ok, you can keep Sammy (but he’s just so darned cute!).

  4. Prescott! I use to live in Prescott Arizona! Cute little town. I remember it being very hot though.

    You did such a great job on your video. Well done. We watched a marathon once of the Goast hunters shows.

    You LIVED there, Starla? I’m jealous! I’ve only visited once, and it looked so cute!!
    Thank you! Oh, that marathon would have me hooked!
    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I absolutely heart Chip Coffey! His eyes are so big and bugged out, it is not surprising he can see into another dimension. 🙂

  6. Jean,
    Your video blew me away. I loved it. I’m attracted to these paranormal shows to. I don’t experience ghosts, spirits or evilness though. I am more intuitive in ways where I’ll think of something and within the next day or two the situation will manifest and present in some form as a way of answering or helping me resolve something. I used to just pass it off as coincidence, but after jumping on the bandwagon and reading “The Secret” I kind of embraced it as a tool.

    lol Even my boyfried is starting to see it now. He just looks at me now when something we were talking about previously surfaces on the news out of nowhere.

    Okay, enough about me I wanna talk about you. I want to hear more of your paranormal ghost stories! Hahahahahahha Jean I seriously loved your video! I almost missed this blog for some reason. Glad I checked 🙂

    Thank you, Sherri!

    Wow, your intuition sounds incredible. Keep developing that, and believing in your 6th sense.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed the video. I did enjoy making it, but felt nervous at the same time. I give big kudos to the celebs. who sit there and tell their stories.

    I’ve been bothered by ghosts for as long as I can remember, and have 2 other stories to share. Funny that this home was my last sighting. Thankful too!

    The morning I posted this, my youngest daughter saw two young girls dancing in her mirror. When she shut her eyes and reopened them, she saw the shirt of one girl fading and the other girl was already gone. Very trippy.

  7. I think all of us have that 6th sense to some extent or another. Learning to develop that “muscle” can be really fun. I don’t think it’s at all scary.

    Hi Lisa – I’d love to develop my 6th sense, but am glad I no longer see ghosts. At least the two don’t have to be hand-in-hand.
    Enjoy your Thursday!

  8. There are only two reasons I watch The Ghost Whisperer Take a wild guess.

    I see crazy shit all the time, but I don’t need ghosts or demons for that. “Normal” human beings do way crazier shit than any ghost ever could. One of those things is confusing fairy tales for reality, like the kind of stuff that’s getting aired on TV these days.

    I’m not familiar with any of the current crop of ghost shows. I’ve seen bits & pieces in passing and, while I could be misled by such a small sample, most of them look like complete bullshit to me.

    I’m not ready to outright, 100% dismiss all ghost/paranormal/psychic stuff. There’s lots of inexplicable shit out there. For example, why do so many broke ass people living in trailer parks vote Republican.

    With UFOs, the key word is “unidentified”. Paranormal just means “outside of the normal”. It’s theoretically possible some of this might hold some water on some level or have a real world explanation. But humans ascribe way too much “magic” to it.

    For example, the witchcraft craze of bygone days was really a combination of LSD-ish food poisoning, gender/power politics, and good ol’ fashioned human scapegoat-ing behaviour.

    Since the majority of Americans are now on psychotropic drugs, it’s absolutely no surprise some are seeing ghosts, angels and demons. As for scapegoating, the market in America for burning people at the stake is completely saturated, what with Muslims, illegal immigrants and all. So, you won’t see much of that today. That’s why ghosts don’t need punishment beyond a “good talking to”.

    But even if this stuff was real, everyone should still be extremely suspicious of anybody who does this for a living and especially anybody who goes on TV to do/talk about it. It’s safe to assume they are frauds looking to make a buck or are fame-whores looking to get their faces on TV.

    Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy a good Ghost Story. This was a fantastic one.

    But ghost chasing TV shows should be viewed as nothing more than amusing entertainment. The good ones are more like travelogues where the “ghost” is the excuse to check out a historical place. But much of what I’ve seen presents itself as straight-up fact and that’s just manipulative.

    When it comes to TV shows investigating ghosts, I’m sticking with Scooby, Shaggy and the rest of the Mystery Machine gang. They always figured it out and it was always some greedy douche-bag wearing a rubber mask.

    Zoinks!

  9. I used to run a paranormal investigation group before I left for uni and we had lots of stories. My website is closing down in November, but if you’d like to know what we found it’s at http://www.ghostsandmore.info (sorry if it looks a bit neglected I haven’t touched it since the last investigation)

    And thanks for popping over to my optometry blog yesterday 🙂

    Jason, that is so cool! I swung by your website, and also joined your FB fan page. Do you think you’ll set up another paranormal investigation group?

  10. Hi Jean! I’m baaaaackkkk. lol. I like these shows but still can’t help watching them as a skeptic. Ghost hunters and Taps. make for very intriguing shows. always interesting to me.

    {{SweetieGirlz}}!!! So good to see you. I hope you’ve been doing well.
    Skepticism is always good. I’m suspicious of the Vet’s diagnosis that our cat died of fright.

  11. Are you kidding me?? Did you seriously make that video yourself? It’s amazing. And incredibly creepy.

    Thanks, Helena! I did make it myself with my flip and hubby’s green screen. I’m thinking about putting myself into some other situations ala my favorite shows. Nothing as creepy as this though!
