hallowen countdown 12 weeks final

Today, August 8th, is just 12 Fridays before Halloween.

(Yep – Halloween falls on a Friday this year!)

Show your love of  Halloween, autumn and late summer – AND drive your friends crazy – by sharing the above image on your social media sites this week.

In honor of the date, I’ve refined, expanded and updated the Halloween Countdown post:

A Portable ‘Countdown to Halloween’ Checklist

~ timely reminders of things to do now and through autumn.

You really can start using the checklist now, during these remaining hot and sultry weeks of summer.

*****

The calendar caught me surprise this year, and I entirely missed posting the first countdown link last week. I’ve been in a mad scramble ever since, but now I’m in the swing of things.

Though I didn’t get it updated in time for posting last Friday, the list

 13 movies  set on or around Halloween

is good to go now.

The Conjuring: facts & the fallout, one year later.

On the anniversary of the release of The Conjuring, (which is one of my picks for the 13 most haunting films for ghost story lovers,) I’m noticing some internet buzz about the aftermath of its production and its subsequent popularity. For fans of The Amityville Horror, this is a familiar scenario. In short, the current owners of the home are asserting that their lives have been turned upside down by the fallout from the film. There has been trespassing and vandalism, not only at the allegedly haunted house, but also at the grave site of  a local woman.

For those of you who are not ardent followers of developments in the paranormal world, I’ll provide a little cheat sheet, so you know who all these real-life people are.

Making Contact With “The Dead”

ghostsMany people write in to ask me about making contact with loved ones who have crossed into spirit and though I’ve written other posts about it, I thought I’d write another in the hopes that this one might offer what the others perhaps did not. But before I get into that, many of you might wonder how it is that I am an authority on the subject. Well here’s the best answer I can give: I’m not. BUT, I do make contact with the spirit world and I have wonderful experiences when doing so! It is those experiences that I share. Well, that and what spirit moves me to write! (the creation of anything…such as this blog post…is an interaction with spirit!). I am not a medium in the same way that the late Sylvia Brown was a medium, nor am I anything near as talented as the Long Island…

Pseudoscience and Paranormal Research

Paranormalogistically:

I completely agree with Karl on this issue of pseudoscience and science. Please enjoy this reblog.

I don’t want to get too deep into this issue at the moment, as I think there will be other article and blog opportunities in the future to explore this more deeply, but I did want to write a quick response to an article I read recently on the Huffington Post that demanded a bit of thought longer than 140 characters.

For the past couple months, I’ve been following the Society for Psychical Research Twitter account, which retweets and shares a number of fascinating articles and stories about all aspects of current ESP research, whether these articles be positive or negative. Today as I was browsing the tweeter, I came across a really interesting article about Pseudoscience and how it corresponds to paranormal research, written by Stafford Betty. Normally, “pseudoscience” is a term thrown around by skeptics to demean research into “paranormal” or anomalous phenomena. And it bothers…

I Can Feel Someone Watching Me!

•May 25, 2014 • 4 Comments

Paranormalogistically:

What an informative and beautiful post :-) I just had to share.

Originally posted on GhostlyDramas:

Ghost Trouble eyesI get a lot of comments from people who say that they feel like someone is watching them. Since they know there is no one else around, they are pretty sure the feeling is coming from a ghost, and it freaks them out, makes them uneasy and anxious…and for some, it terrifies them. I know the feeling…been there and done that a time or two or a thousand! It’s not a good feeling. Seriously, it’s bad enough to have someone watching us when we can see them watching us, but to have “someone” watching us that we can’t see? Now that is a spooky, please-make-it-stop kind of uncomfortable. A big part of that fear is the unknown factors. Who is it? WHAT is it? What do they want? Are they going to attack me? Possess me? Do they watch me during private moments when I don’t want anyone watching me?

Is One Coast More Haunted Than The Other?

Paranormalogistically:

What are your thoughts on this? I’m going with the East coast but I may have some bias because that’s where I live.

We’re going to take a break from research and academic-y posts and I would like to share something with you that’s been on my mind. Since moving here to Raleigh, NC from San Diego, CA in June of 2013, I’ve been noticing that I experience much more paranormal activity on the east coast. My team here in the “City of Oaks” has nearly double the amount of cases and potential leads than the team in San Diego. Not only in case numbers, but I’ve noticed that the availability of haunted locations to investigate is far greater than the west coast.

The answers can be chalked up to the idea that there’s more history on the east coast than the west coast. But in order to validate that assumption, we have to account for the history and the timeline of both coasts. And of course, that would…

The Cult of the Banshee, a supernatural tale for St Patrick’s Day

Do you believe in the supernatural? Do you accept that there is something unseen in ourselves, in our thoughts, in our inner consciousness, which Nature will not allow us to entirely ignore?

With some the supernatural takes the form of luck, of a blind belief in Fate, while the particular brand of others is ghosts pure and simple. Between those two, luck and ghosts, there is a wide range of speculation and assertion.

Without doubt, the supernatural exists to a large extent in the imagination. I do not say that it exists only or entirely in the imagination, but I do consider that the imagination has a great influence upon the existence of the supernatural. A highly strung, nervous, imaginative temperament is more susceptible to, and receptive of the supernatural; it is what I may term a good medium; it catches and retains a sensation without attempting or wishing to…
