Native Americans: Destruction of Their Culture

1913-native-americansI recently added an essay written by Becky Duplain about the struggles of Native Americans and how their culture was wrongly destroyed by English settlers in the Americas. This writing is placed in our spiritual writings section of our website because it is a story that needs to be told.

Today, Native Americans are still oppressed, still suffering from the wrongs that were done to this spiritual people. Please read the Destruction of the Native American Culture and share this article on social media. It needs told.

Mesmerized by the Hotel Del Coronado

hotel-del-coronado-212I had the luxury afforded me of being asked to travel to San Diego on business. My travel and room at the Hotel Del was paid for; so all I had to do was show up. And I did. After all, I had learned of this hotel’s spooky, Victorian past many years ago and thought it would be great to check it out and see if I could find some of my own ghost stories about the place. (See More Haunting at Hotel Del.)

During my few days out west, I also made a trip up from the Del to see the Whaley House haunting and really enjoyed the staff and site. Their personal stories convinced me that there is something to the tales of restless spirits that seem to make this place their haunt. I would love to pay another visit for an investigation at night if I get another chance to do so. Tip to the Reader: There are some excellent , authentic Mexican restaurants just across the street — do not miss out on this if there!

My last day at the Hotel Del Coronado, I found myself exploring its labyrinth of halls and looking into picturesque rooms and the mesmerizing architecture. It truly is a one of a kind place that reminds me of DisneyLand (or Disney World). The old hotel is just so unique and has so much personality, I could envision coming back with my family and having a great time at this resort. Every corner seemed to have a story about it, history, and that makes it really special. No wonder Disney copied it and remade it in Florida.

The more I killed time by walking the grounds, I began noticing innumerable, breathtaking views that are meant to be discovered while looking at the reds and whites of the building, the dark blue of the ocean, the green and tans of the palm trees, the bounty of floral colors in the landscaping, all set against an azure sky. Fantastic and mood altering.

The hotel staff were wonderful and seemed to enjoy their roles as if they were cast members (Disney reference again, sorry). If you take the time to talk with them, they willingly share history and tidbits of haunting that makes your stay seem memorable.

I wasn’t the only one to have had a ghostly time while there. Numerous times I overheard guests talking about their “weird” encounters or retelling (usually incorrectly) the tragedy of resident ghost, Kate Morgan. How funny.

If you get the chance to visit Coronado Island’s premier, paranormal hot spot, make sure you head west. Head west and do it.

Do Ghosts Haunt Washington D.C. Sites?

Lincoln_Memorial_hauntedWhen we think of ghosts and haunting, especially, where a disembodied person might want to perpetually visit, attractions come to mind. If you were a ghost, would you want to visit places you haven’t seen before? Perhaps. What about retracing steps to other earthly sites that hold fond memories? It would seem the possibilities could be endless, a real “ghosts on vacation” type of scenario. You could visit tourist sites, amusement parks, even the universe, maybe. I certainly might give that a go, for sure. And, think about this: you could visit the busy, tourist traps undetected and for free!

This month, we posted a particularly interesting ghost photo taken at the Lincoln Memorial (Lincoln Memorial Ghost). This ghost traveler did not go undetected. A  gray-ish man, wearing a hat or helmet, walked among visitors. Only the camera’s eye saw him, and now we can show him to you.

Whoever he is, I cannot help but wonder why he would be there.  Was he on vacation? Did the Washington D.C. ghost travel there with family or friends?  Or, does he continually hang around Lincoln’s seated statue, ever guarding it from vandals? One can only imagine the reasons why…

Our New Website Is Live – Yay!

After many months and working on content clean-up since July of 2013, I am very pleased to announce that our new website has made it up on the Internet. Check out the new Angels & Ghosts site and let me know what you think!

We have plenty of content to be adding to the site now that we are good to go. I think you’ll love the new design and logo as well as the website’s ability to work on any type of device that accesses the Internet: tablets, smartphones, iPods, desktops, laptops – well, you get the idea.

I also wanted to point you to a new video called “Selfie Ghost” that is very flabbergasting. We do not know what caused the “ghost”to appear at the end of the clip, but you should know that Mary’s hand on the phone would not allow for her fingers to get in the way of filming. So what reaches forth toward her in the background, right side? Take a look and see if you can figure it out – we can’t.
