The tip of your little finger is lower than the top joint of your ring finger.
Your vast ocean of emotions creates difficulties when it comes to expressing yourself. You’ve wished many times to be able to have reacted properly in romantic or other stimuli. “I know s/he was flirting with me… why didn’t I say anything??…”
Of course, as the years go by, you find ways to show your true colors. It’s amazing how much you can give to someone but unfortunately only a few do understand, how wonderful and resourceful you can actually be. As you grow up you can find more ways to become more extrovert and balance your shyness. Many empaths have a sign like this. Are you an Empath? See here.
TIP: You should begin to write a novel or a story as you indeed have so many thoughts and feelings to describe. Even if you feel restrained to do so, by writing you will learn to think more objectively.
The tip of your little finger is the same height as the top joint of your ring finger.
You are a personality who has mastered a balance between your introvert and your extrovert qualities and intentions. It is not that you don’t get irritated or angry but you somehow find a way to express your feelings in a non-catastrophic way. There may be a fire burning inside of you ready to devour anyone and anything but you know how to control it and not burst into flames. Well… Most of the times!
You value honesty and you demand it from others. You can easily suspect when something is wrong or that someone’s hiding secrets from you. In these cases, you may burst into flames but it is most likely to keep silent and wait for the right moment to solve your issues.
TIP: It may sound stupid but laughter is one of greatest weapons. Laughter is, in fact, an expression of your warm hearts. Laughter radiates power and helps you maintain balance. You can also regularly check chakras. Are they balanced?
The tip of your little finger is higher than the top joint of your ring finger.
You’ve got psychological qualities of an extrovert and sociable person. Although you may not love being around people all the time, you’ve got a natural talent to be charming and attract the attention of those around you. Even since a little child, you can remember that you could easily attract other children to play with you.
Moreover, you have an ability to project your will and make things happen. This can be a sign of a true leader. But remember. You have to balance egocentrism with the needs and feelings of others. Do not neglect the feelings of people who love you. Getting advised is the quality of successful leaders.
TIP: Every now and then try grounding. Become one with our Mother Earth can help you balance your energy chakras and get rid of excessive energy.
Instead of acknowledging, processing and releasing unpleasant feelings, the societal trend these days seems to be to bottle them up. We think that we always have to keep moving; that to take time for ourselves is to be weak. We think that we are better off ignoring our emotions; that to disregard them is to make them go away.
Truth be told, no amount of denial can ever solve the root issue. To cast our feelings aside is to keep ourselves stuck in an endless state of stress and discomfort.
Psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker Sean Grover has made a career out of studying where these repressed emotions go. In his research, Grover found that different emotions tend to manifest themselves physically in distinct parts of the body. This phenomenon is called “somatization”—the tendency to experience psychological distress in the form of physical symptoms. These bodily signs are referred to as “psychosomatic symptoms,” which are caused or aggravated by mental factors like internal conflict and stress.
Of course, not all pain and discomfort experienced in the body are psychosomatic. But as Grover studied his clients’ bodily responses to stress, recurring patterns became apparent. It seemed as though certain repressed emotions, when transformed into bodily responses, were present in the same locations—time and time again.
As you’re reading this article, keep in mind that psychosomatic reactions are neither a neat nor a precise science. So much of how the body responds to stress depends on the individual. The list below is best used as a general introduction to psychosomatic symptoms, from which you might resonate with some, and not with others.
Lower Back: Anger
The lower back is a common place for the body to store repressed anger. If you’re experiencing back pain, with no obvious cause, it may be the result of your emotions. For long-term relief, learn to work through frustration and address conflicts as they arise.
When you’re afraid, your stomach and intestines tend to tense up. That’s how we get phrases like “I’m sick to my stomach.” The more you repress fears, the more physical reactions you’re likely to experience. When unnerved, it’s much better to acknowledge your distress and talk it out with a loved one or write it down in a journal. Grover explains, “The more you can express the fear in words, the less of a hold it will have on your body.”
Heart and Chest: Hurt
Yes, it seems like you can actually feel a broken heart. Physically. Some of Grover’s clients found that after releasing their pain, like crying when hurt, the tension in their chests would finally lift—even when no doctor, no medication, could do so before. If heart and chest pain have no obvious source, the discomfort could be psychosomatic.
Headache: Loss of Control
You can’t control everything in life. In fact, trying to do so might even make you feel worse emotionally—and give you splitting headaches. Letting go and accepting what is out of your control might relieve this unpleasant symptom.
Neck and Shoulder Tension: Overtaxed
If you suffer from neck and shoulder tension that has no apparent cause, it’s likely that you’re feeling overburdened. Tightness in the neck and the shoulders are one of the most common psychosomatic symptoms of stress. To mitigate the pain, pay attention to what you can and cannot handle. Don’t be afraid to say no, ask for support, or share responsibilities with others when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Your body will thank you.
When you hold onto bitterness and anger, chances are that you do more damage to yourself than to the people you resent. This animosity stresses your entire body, keeps you from living in the moment, and makes you extra tired. By focusing on those who wronged you, you exhaust yourself for no good reason at all. Instead, try to concentrate on forgiveness or moving forward.
People tend to numb their feelings when an event is too overwhelming. When we don’t process our memories in the mind, our bodies can become paralyzed in the face of pain or danger. The best way to work through trauma is to acknowledge it first so that you can then proactively process the painful emotions.
Insomnia: Unease with Change
Life-changing events—both good and bad—can have dramatic impacts on your sleeping habits. It’s common to feel the strain when your life is in continuous change: during times of stress or even times of essential personal growth. Learn to work through change, by writing about it or talking with a friend, rather than repress your aversion to it.
It’s been my experience that ALL children have psychic abilities until about 3 or 4 years of age. We come in with it. As a child we don’t realize it’s unusual to have it, so we just “go with it”, without raising much fuss. Granted, some kids come in with more of it than others. Still, most have a marked degree of ability until they are told such things don’t exist. Personally, I find this extremely cool and something worth nurturing… but I would (ha). Calleen
Could your child have psychic abilities?
Have they seen things that simply can’t be explained?
Those were a few of the questions that Spiritual Niagara and Psychic Kids United tried to answer Saturday during an information session for parents and children at the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls.
“We want to let children know what it’s like to have these different abilities, and they’re all varying, and what to do with them and how to use them to thrive,” said Amanda Dubois, a psychic medium and member of Spiritual Niagara.
The goal of the event was to give children an opportunity to explore and develop their intuitive gifts and to educate parents.
Dubois and a team of facilitators worked with parents and children to explain the traits of empaths, mediums, psychics and healers and how children can manage their abilities.
According to Psychic Kids United, a medium is someone who senses or can connect with spirit energy while an empath is someone who is sensitive to circumstances, events and conversations.
A healer is an individual who wants to help others to feel better, be it emotionally, mentally, physically or spiritually and a psychic knows things that are not obvious to everyone else.
Welland resident Kelly Serniak brought along her children Julia, 9, and seven-year-old Jacob.
“The focus here is kids but it really applies to anyone,” Serniak said.
“I think it’s important for them to be tapped in to every level of who they are because it really dictates how we see the world and how we work through the world,” she said.
Dubois and other speakers encouraged participants not to be afraid of the unknown.
“In TV and movies, it’s sensationalized, it’s not real life,” she explained.
“Embrace your abilities because, yes, you can help others, but first and foremost they will help you.”
Additional information sessions are planned for next year, likely in March or May.
Spiritual Niagara began in June 2009 and provide links to spiritual services across the region. Those services including meditation classes, yoga, Reiki, massage, psychics, tarot, holistic health, hypnosis and energy healers.
You might also check out my book, Psychic Development, along with the CD. Together they help you better understand your child’s gifts, while helping your child understand how to harness, use, and control it. Takes the fear out of the process by empowering them with knowledge… and, you too.
It has become an epidemic. Every one is worn out, and stressed as they try to juggle everyday life. Kids, family, career you name it, it’s riding on your to-do list. Combine that with the uncertainty of the economy and the high demands of your job, in an effort to keep it, it’s no wonder so many Americans are flat tired.
No matter the issue, or top concern of a client, I always start with the bedroom. Especially when it comes to fatigue. After all isn’t it where you’re suppose to recharge? Unfortunately, too many clients I see treat their bedrooms as an extended office. Books, paper, iPads, laptops, cell phones, buzzing T.V, it’s no wonder we can’t sleep. My top article of 2015 was Feng Shui Bedroom Basics. It’s been repined over 20,000 times and I’ve received hundreds of emails from folks just like you craving for rest.
Well I’m here to tell you that there’s an all-natural way to help it. According to feng shui principles, what’s going on in your home environment is going on in your life. Take stock of what’s going on in your home. Try to see it with a fresh pair of eyes and you’ll often be shocked at what it tells you!
No matter what’s making you tired here are 5 easy changes you can make to your environment – home, or office – that will increase your energy.
Feng shui house basics to prevent fatigue, 5 tips to boost productivity and kick exhaustion to the curb:
Small, cramped hallways – In order to have good flowing Chi (energy) it needs to breathe, it needs to meander. If your home has dark, cramped hallways you’re literally being squeezed to the bone. Energy is being squeezed out of you. Hang some mirrors, paint the hall white, add pictures of nature, and install better lighting to boost you up.
Postponed energy – anything that’s laying around your home that is broken, in need of repair, or damaged is a message to your sub conscious mind that you’re surrounded by unfinished tasks. This drains you. And it reminds you of things that need to be done but haven’t been completed. If I have a client who complains of a “nagging issue” I know without a doubt that I need to look for a broken, damaged or ill repaired item and get it fixed immediately.
Dead or dying plants – If your lawn is dead, if you’re surrounded by pots with plant skeletons, dead trees – anything dead that was once alive is terrible Chi. This indicates negative chi, which saps your energy. So if a client tells me they feel “lifeless, sapped, droopy or drained” I look for dead foliage as an indicator. Surround yourself with beautiful thriving plants, and flowers for an instant boost in vitality.
Good lighting – Good Chi through a home is inspiring and uplifting. Nothing about a dark corner or room is inspiring. In fact it’s stagnant and lifeless. When I hear a client tell me “things just aren’t moving in my life”, or “everything seems so stagnant” I immediately look for bulbs that are out, dark corners, and unused rooms. Light it up, and stir up that Chi to get it moving!
Leaking anything – this saps your resources, whether money, energy or even joy! So fix those faucets, broken toilets, or anything else leaking – like your cars oil!
Clutter – This is death to any home and its occupants. In fact, I just returned from California for a two day feng shui retreat and one of the homes was so cluttered no one could think straight. All of us left feeling drained, confused and overwhelmed and we were only there for two hours.
Imagine the homeowner who lives there! She couldn’t even tell us what her issues were – lack of clarity. A classic example of what clutter does to our minds and psyche. Get rid of the clutter and create an organized, simple environment that supports your energy. Spending 20 minutes looking for your glasses is no way conserving your energy, so get rid of the clutter.

Welcome to 2018, the year where almost every planet decided to take a retrograde and turn our lives into metaphorical piles of dust and ash. Astrologically, politically, and otherwise, this year has been one for the books — like, the kind of books you hide on the back of the shelf and try to forget you own. And because 2018 is literally still not done with its reign of Rx terror, Mercury retrograde is happening during Thanksgiving. Yes, friends, I wouldn’t lie to you: The planet that rules communication, travel, tech, and more is going to be retrograde during the busiest travel day of the year (not to mention during every conversation you have at the Thanksgiving dinner table). *Intense deep breaths* BUT RETROGRADES ARE JUST TRYING TO FORCE US TO GO INWARD AND LEARN LESSONS, OK? OK. Whew. Now that you’ve gone through the multiple stages of grief and hopefully entered the “acceptance” phase, we can move forward and discuss what this means for all of us Earth babies, and exactly how Mercury retrograde during Thanksgiving will affect us.
Mercury, our solar system’s planet of communication (and the most infamous of the bunch as far as retrogrades are concerned), enters its retrograde periods approximately three to four times per year, during which the planet appears to move backward instead of forward for several weeks before going direct again (i.e. moving forward again, as usual). Mercury’s retrogrades are notorious because they happen pretty frequently (at least as compared to other planets’ cycles), and also because of the havoc these periods wreak in our day-to-day. Astrologically, a planet’s retrograde periods cast a shadow of confusion, snags, and errors over the areas of life that planet rules. In Mercury’s case, that’s things like communication (by phone, mail, or in person), traveling, scheduling, and the transfer of data. In a society where cell phones, Google calendars, and jam-packed schedules rule supreme, you can bet it makes for some not-so-nifty snags.
That all said, it’s fully impossible to ignore the glaring fact that Thanksgiving is taking place right smack in the middle of Mercury’s retrograde period. As if holidays aren’t stressful enough! This Mercury retrograde, which marks the last of 2018’s hellish run, begins on Nov. 16 in the sign of Sagittarius. The fiery sign of Sag is naturally a world-travelin’, high-thinkin’, very outspoken type, but with Mercury headed backward, things are fully topsy-turvy. “Mercury retrograde brings communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items,” explains Astrology King on its site. Everything we needed during Thanksgiving, right folks?
Travel issues are par for the course during Mercury Rx, but given that Thanksgiving week marks one of the busiest travel times of the year, prepare yourself for the unexpected if you’re headed out of town. It’s going to be necessary to triple check your flight times, leave earlier than you think you need to (as traffic, delays, and other snags are likely), and expect delays or miscommunications. I guess on the bright side, if you miss your flights altogether, you can always stay home and have an impromptu Friendsgiving instead
Assuming you eventually make it to your Thanksgiving destination, be aware of the fact that miscommunications are likely — and with the retrograde happening in Sagittarius (plus certain planetary aspects that are negatively affecting this transit), there may be a particular edge to these potential disagreements. “[T]here [will] be a clash of different cultures,” described Find Your Fate on its site. TBH, there is alreadya clash of cultures at most Thanksgiving tables given that not everyone’s families share the same views on issues that matter. There’s a reason blowout holiday arguments are a thing. So despite the fact that 2018 has been nothing short of a political hellscape and we all just voted in the midterms, you’ll want to really think before you speak — as the likelihood of your emotions getting the best of you is likely. “You may feel very opinionated on a particular subject and care little what others think,” explained Astrology King. “However, this is not a good time to be preaching to others and telling how they should think or act. Your emotional biases can influence your thoughts and intellectual reasoning.” This means think aheadabout how to handle things if Uncle what’s-his-face says something seriously offensive, and do your best to not completely fly off the handle. I mean, it’ll probably happen anyway, but we should at least try.
All the same rules apply to those of you who may be partaking in the classic night-before-Thanksgiving hometown bar crawls: Think before you speak, and expect the unexpected. “[E]xpect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past,” wrote Astrology King. But be aware: “While the Mercury retrograde period might be good for flicking through old photo albums, it is generally considered more of a nuisance than a benefit.” Prepare yourself for the emotional ramifications of feeling nostalgic AF, and know that you may run into some hometown ghosts who induce some serious feelings in that lil’ retrograde-heavy heart of yours.
Like it or not, Mercury retrograde will be in full force during the whole week of Thanksgiving, and as described by AstroStyle, “The truth will inevitably come boiling to the surface during this phase, as mysteries are revealed and skeletons are forced out of the closet.” Are we happy about this? No. Are we slightly holding a grudge against the cosmos? Absolutely. But we can handle it with a little extra caution, consciousness, and probably a bag full of protective crystals that never leaves our person until this dang planet finally goes direct again on Dec. 6. Now let’s party like it’s the last retrograde of 2018!
25. THE RESTING PLACE OF NEW ENGLAND’S LAST VAMPIRE: MERCY BROWN’S HEADSTONE, RHODE ISLAND
On the morning of March 17, 1892, a group of Exeter’stownsfolk dug up the graves of three local women. They were looking for what they believed to be a vampire responsible for dealing with the townsfolk. Unknown to them, tuberculosis was the real culprit in this tragedy but in the end, they placed the blame on a young woman named Mercy Brown.
Mercy’s grave exists to this day in Chestnut Hill Cemetery, a small graveyard behind a tiny, white Baptist church off of Ten Rod Road, just a couple of miles from I-95. Today, hundreds of vampire lovers visit her grave each year.
24. ONE OF THE MOST SPOOKY ROADS IN THE WORLD: “ZOMBIE ROAD” IN WILDWOOD, MISSOURI
Zombie Road, formally known as Lawler Ford Road, is just a two-mile stretch of highway with a big reputation. This area was a hangout spot for teenagers in the 1950s, and over the decades there have been so many paranormal sightings, it was nicknamed Zombie Road.
Now largely impassable by automobile, it’s on the site of one of the largest Native burial mounds in the country, and legends that have been passed around for years tell of packs of child ghosts, and the souls of working men.
But catching a glimpse of the infamous ghost lights or the spirits that roam the area at night will be difficult – the local police force issues tickets to anyone caught wandering the area after dark.
23. BIGFOOT, UFOS AND SATANIC RITUALS: IT’S ALL GOING DOWN IN THE BRIDGEWATER TRIANGLE, MASSACHUSETTS
The Bridgewater Triangle refers to an area of about 200 square miles within southeastern Massachusetts and it is claimed to be a site of paranormal phenomena.
The area is full of unusual tales, from several reported sightings of Bigfoot-like creatures, Native curses, UFO sightings, and even giant snakes.
If you want paranormal activity, this place has it all, which is why you won’t find us anywhere near it.
22. CATCH UP WITH NEW ORLEANS’ VOODOO QUEEN IN ST. LOUIS CEMETERY, LOUISIANA
New Orleans is a town steeped in mythical and spiritual traditions like witchcraft, voodoo and vampires. Established in 1789, St. Louis Cemetery is the oldest in the city and considered one of the most spooked in all of the United States.
For over 200 years, there have been reports of people having run-ins with the ghosts that reside at the site, and none are more famous than Marie Laveau, commonly known as the Voodoo Queen.
Visitors have reported all sorts of paranormal happenings while trying to interact with Marie. Feelings of being touched, becoming unexplainably ill, and hearing voices emanating from inside her tomb have all been said to happen on occasion.
21. GHOSTS NOW SHOWING AT THE COLEMAN THEATER IN MIAMI, OKLAHOMA
This historic theatre’s main area is said to have been built on top of an old crematorium and mortuary, according to Richard Southall, author of Haunted Route 66: Ghosts of America’s Legendary Highway. Loud footsteps, creaky noises, and strange sounds have left employees wondering if there is another presence lurking within.
Legend says three different ghosts roam the premises, among them being Mr. Roberts, the former projectionist. Some claim they can smell his bay rum cologne. Others report a ghost who whistles in the basement, a room that gets really hot for no reason. The most commonly told stories, however, involve the dressing rooms to the side of the stage, where many reports of ghosts have been made.
Few paranormal hotspots have a history as disturbing as Waverly Hills. Once considered as having the finest, most advanced tuberculosis ward in the United States, the sanatorium was established in 1910 to help fight the “white plague” using cutting-edge medicine.
But between 8,000 and 63,000 people perished, often not before enduring questionable (to put it nicely) treatments, as there would be no real cure for tuberculosis until streptomycin was discovered in 1943.
The building is now primarily a tourist attraction for those with paranormal predilections, and there are rumours of weird doppelgängers, ghostly children, otherworldly forces, and more.
Sanatoriums are scary, but the spooky stories from this place are on another level.
19. A HOUSE FOR LOST SOULS: THE WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE, SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA
With mile-long hallways, staircases to nowhere and doors that open into walls, this mysterious maze-like Victorian mansion was built by Sarah Winchester, the wealthy widow of William Wirt Winchester (son of the manufacturer of the Winchester rifle).
After losing both her daughter and husband to illness, Sarah sought help from a spiritual advisor, who warned Sarah that the Winchester family had been struck by a curse, and would be spooked by the ghosts of the people who were harmed by the Winchester rifle.
The only way to appease the ghosts, according to the medium, was to build a house for the lost souls. Hence this 160-room sprawling house renowned for its architectural curiosities.
Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is privately owned and serves as a tourist attraction.
18. SPECTRAL VISIONS AT ST. AUGUSTINE LIGHTHOUSE, FLORIDA
Located at the north end of Anastasia Island and built between 1871 and 1874, this haunted Florida lighthouse has been the subject of numerous ghost stories and supernatural tales.
Legend has it that the daughters of its construction superintendent continue to rest in the building ever since their untimely passings. Three other people have perished in the lighthouse from illnesses, while a keeper named Joseph fell to his demise.
Visitors have claimed to see shadows high up in the tower, while others hear the daughters laughing and giggling at night. The eldest girl is also fond of appearing before guests donned in the clothing she wore on her last day.
The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum offer tickets for a number of ghost tours and ghost-themed events.
17. DISCOVER WHAT’S LURKING IN THE HALLS OF MOUNDSVILLE PENITENTIARY, WEST VIRGINIA
It is estimated that one thousand inmates became statistics while at this fearsome, Gothic-style prison, which opened in 1866. Some of natural causes, but dozens endured a much less humane fate, and many more were victims of own their fellow prisoners.
It seems this carnage may have left a mark that will never wash away because, by many accounts, some of the souls who served time under this roof are still lurking in the shadows of the prison walls. Would we set foot inside? No way.
16. DARE YOU GO INSIDE? THE BELL WITCH CAVE, ADAMS, TENNESSEE
The Bell Witch served as inspiration for the movies The Blair Witch Project her tale has been a part of Southern folklore for almost two centuries.
The story behind the Bell property varies, but most accounts claim that Kate Batts, a neighbour of the Bell family, believed she was cheated out of property in a land purchase, so took revenge on the entire Bell family.
The cave on the property is said to be especially spooked and visitors claim that any object taken from the site is cursed, while many have reported encountering a force while on the property.
Technology doesn’t work there either, with reports of cameras mysteriously malfunctioning. Caves are one thing- add to that the ghost of a vengeful witch, and we’re out.
15. GOLDEN AGE GHOULS AT THE ROOSEVELT HOTEL, LOS ANGELES
If you’re passing through LA and get a supernatural itch you have to scratch, look no further than the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, a historic hotspot which opened its doors in 1927 and has hosted countless rich, famous and paranormal patrons ever since.
Among their ghostly guests are rumoured to be Marilyn Monroe, who has been spotted in the mirror of room 229, and Montgomery Clift, who has been heard playing his trumpet in room 928. Carole Lombard has made a few appearances on the 12th floor, where she and her husband Clark Gable used to stay.
Other sightings involve a little girl in a blue dress named Caroline. There have also been reports of cold spots, photographic “orbs”, and mysterious phone calls to the hotel operator.
14. THE MOST SPOOKY CLUB IN AMERICA: BOBBY MACKEY’S MUSIC WORLD, WILDER, KENTUCKY
This nightclub and honky tonk, owned by country singer Bobby Mackey, has given rise to various urban legends, including a modern folklore claim that the site features a “gateway to hell” and is guarded by the spirit of a woman, Pearl Bryan, who was found in a field 2.5 miles from the site.
Bobby Mackey’s was also built on top of a slaughterhouse. Some places just seem to be vortexes of evil, we guess.
Bar-goers report to see shadow people out of the corners of their eyes. Some get pushed and scratched by unseen forces, and of course, no hotspot would be complete without phantom footsteps. Why not pop in for a drink?
13. TRIP THE LIGHT FANTASTIC: THE HORNET SPOOKLIGHT, OKLAHOMA
The Hornet Spotlight is a light that appears in a small area known locally as the “Devil’s Promenade” on the border between southwestern Missouri and northeastern Oklahoma, west of the small town of Hornet, Missouri.
As you drive through the Ozark Mountains on East 50 Road, you may be lucky to spot this phenomenon, which was first seen more than 100 years ago, according to the Travel Channel.
Since it first appeared, experts including the Army Corps of Engineers, have tried to debunk it, but locals have their own explanation. They believe it’s a spirit – perhaps an old miner – trying to communicate. If we saw this spooklight, we’d keep driving.
12. A HOTBED OF PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: TRANS-ALLEGHENY LUNATIC ASYLUM, WEST VIRGINIA
This former state hospital is reported to be a hotbed of paranormal activity. The largest hand-cut stone building in North America, this mammoth granite structure was constructed in 1858 and though it originally housed only 250 residents, at its peak in the 1950s, more than 2,000 patients called this place home.
Trans-Alleghany stopped treating patients in 1994, but while mortal souls no longer wander its halls, it remains home to ghosts of soldiers and former patients, who are said to walk its two-and-a-half miles of corridors.
Brave thrill seekers can join these phantom residents on any number of special guided tours.
11. NESSIE’S US COUSIN: THE LAKE MONSTER OF LAKE CHAMPLAIN, NEW YORK AND VERMONT
There are many lakes around the world reputed to hold monsters, the most famous of which is Nessie, who lives in the cold, deep waters of Loch Ness in Scotland. But the US has its own counterpart, the legend of Champ, who is said to lurk in Lake Champlain, on the border between Vermont and New York.
Hundreds of witnesses claim to have seen Champ over the year and, unsurprisingly, descriptions vary. Most, however, suggest a creature between 20 and 80 feet long, with a series of distinct humps and a serpentine body.
Some say the head looks like a snake or a dog. Some say it has the body of a turtle. One thing’s for sure, we’re not getting close enough to find out.
10. SPECTRES AT SEA: RMS QUEEN MARY, LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA
Sea, you say? Aren’t these supposed to be spooky pitstops for a road trip? Well, this historic cruise ship is now permanently docked in Long Beach, California, and operates as a hotel.
The retired British ocean liner sailed the North Atlantic from 1936 to 1967, but is now better known for its mysterious happenings. A shadowy woman white has allegedly been seen in the Queen’s Salon and a well-dressed gentleman in old-fashioned duds has made more than one appearance in the first class suites.
Giggling children have been heard near a storage room, and if that’s not enough for you, Cabin B340 is no longer open to guests because of a plethora of paranormal sightings in and around there.
9. A DOORWAY TO DARKNESS: STULL CEMETERY, KANSAS
Stull Cemetery has a reputation so big that even a Pope tried to avoid going near it. As the story goes, Pope John Paul II was flying to Colorado for a public appearance in 1993, when he declared that the ground in Stull Cemetery was so unholy that he forced his private plane to re-route around it because even the air above was tainted.
With legends that involve sacrifice, rituals, and even a gateway to hell frequently used by Lucifer himself, we’re not surprised he gave it a miss. We would too.
8. BOTH EARTHLINGS AND ALIENS ARE WELCOME IN ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO
For an otherworldly addition to your US road trip, why not pop by the famous town of Roswell, the small town that shot to fame in the 1940s as the supposed crash site of a UFO.
For those not in know, the Roswell Incident happened in the summer of 1947. It is claimed by many theorists, even eye-witnesses at the time, that a UFO crash-landed outside the town, with its extraterrestrial occupants still on board.
Some say the event has been covered up. Many say it never happened in the first place. Either way, the town has attracted a stream of tourists, UFO researchers and dedicated believers in search of the truth… and souvenirs.
It’s a legacy the town wholeheartedly celebrates and has fun with, from the alien-themed souvenir shops to the International U.F.O. Museum and Research Center. It’s definitely one for Mulder and Scully.
7. HOW DOES IT DO THAT? THE ETERNAL FLAME FALLS, NEW YORK
The Eternal Flame Falls needs to be seen to be believed. It’s a fire that burns eternally behind a small waterfall, located in the Shale Creek Preserve in Western New York. The grotto emits natural gas, which can be lit to produce a small flame, which is visible nearly year round.
For years, scientists thought that the eternal flame was kept alight by gas produced by ancient, extremely hot rocks. However, researchers from Indiana University have discovered that the rocks underneath the area aren’t hot enough to produce this gas, which means another process must be producing it. As to what exactly that process is, no one yet knows. Could the explanation be supernatural?
6. THE SEVEN GATES OF HELL, HELLAM TOWNSHIP, PENNSYLVANIA
Hellam Township is reputed to feature seven remote gates, which when passed through in the right order, open an entrance to hell, naturally.
One particular telling of this urban folklore alleges that the gateways were formed after a fire broke out at a mental hospital in the 1800s, as actual gates were put up afterwards to trap the remaining patients who survived the blaze.
It is said that only the first gate is visible by daylight, and this lies on private land just off the town’s Trout Run Road – and we do not condone trespassing, so don’t try it. However, by night, other gates become visible in this quiet, wooded corner of the township, and it’s reported that nobody has yet passed five and returned to talk about the experience. Would we go in search of these gates? Hell, no.
5. SAY HI TO THE GHOST OF AL CAPONE ON ALCATRAZ ISLAND, SAN FRANCISCO
If you’re driving through San Francisco and have a few hours to spare, why not take a tour of one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Alcatraz Island has been home to a Civil War fortress, a bird sanctuary, the Indian Red Power movement, and – most famously – a prison.
It’s now a draw for tourists who are fascinated by the former facility’s reputation for spooky goings-on. Some say a ghostly Al Capone, a former inmate, can be heard practicing the banjo he played in the prison’s old band. Others say that mobster Alvin Karpis guards the bakery and kitchen. But the consensus is that the most paranormal spot is in cell block D, where the notorious escape attempt took place.
4. GET SOME POSITIVE VIBES FROM THE BELL ROCK VORTEX, SEDONA, ARIZONA
Many supernatural sites have a negative connotation related to ghosts, demons, or other spirits. Sedona, Arizona, on the other hand, is said to give off positive, healing energy.
Many people believe that Sedona is a vortex, although certain areas throughout the town have particularly strong vortex energy and the area has long been discussed in Native folklore for being spiritually charged.
According to people who go near the Red Rocks and Bell Rock, you’ll begin to feel a strange vibration inside you, described as “refreshing.” Some also claim to have seen strange lights at the top of the rocks — possibly visitors from another world?
3. VENGEFUL GHOSTS AT THE SORREL-WEED HOUSE, SAVANNAH, GEORGIA
Savannah has more than its fair share of spooky sites and legends, but its most famous haunted house may be the Sorrel-Weed House, which appeared in the opening shots of the 1994 film Forrest Gump.
The house is said to be home to at least two ghosts: the wife and the rival lover of shipping merchant Francis Sorrel, who built the house in the 1840s. Spooks became so frequent and severe that the Sorrel family moved out to another property next door.
Today, it’s open for ghost tours, so why not check out this ghostly gaff for yourself? We’ll pass.
2. PHANTOM FORMS AT GETTYSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA
For over 100 years, Gettysburg has been a hotbed of paranormal activity, according to reports. From phantom cries of wounded soldiers to life-like apparitions, many visitors to Gettysburg have been touched by its haunting past.
Gettysburg was the site where Confederate and Union armies clashed on July 1, 1863. The battle was a three-day onslaught that would change history forever. Soldiers never received a proper burial, now, all these years later, these unsettled spirits may still linger on.
From the Daniel Lady Farm, which was used as a field hospital, to the Gettysburg Hotel, there are lots of places in Gettysburg to get your fill of something strange.
1. THE HOTEL THAT INSPIRED STEPHEN KING – THE STANLEY HOTEL, COLORADO
If you’ve ever seen or read The Shining, this Colorado hotel was author Stephen King’s inspiration behind it. Built in 1907 by the founder of Stanley Steamer automobiles, today the hotel celebrates its spooky reputation by hosting ghost tours for visitors.
But even if you’re in the neighborhood, it’s worth popping by. Who knows, maybe you’ll see apparitions of Mr. Stanley and his wife, who are frequently spotted passing through the lobby and billiard room, and can even be heard tinkling the ivories on occasion.
Sounds of giggling children, whispering voices and phantom footsteps have also been reported, as have lights switching on and off.
Logically speaking, there’s almost always a valid explanation for those bumps in the night — but there’s a sense of adventure that comes along with investigating the unexplained. The thrill of finding an explanation for the unexplainable (even if that explanation is otherworldly) is what brings together paranormal enthusiasts in the hunt for answers.
Veterans tend to be strong-willed people who have long immersed themselves in a culture in which death is never far from the mind. From battlefields to bases, many locales in the military world are home to the world’s most ghostly tales — and if you’ve ever been on an installation at night, you know there’s something undeniably eerie at work.
These veterans banded together over their love of the paranormal and have decided to look into the many oft-ignored (and never explained) supernatural military mysteries.
The Military Veterans Paranormal (or MVP) are based out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The group came together over a shared love for all things spooky and, today, have a legitimate operation going on. They catch word of possible paranormal activity, plan an investigation as if it were a conventional military operation, and then head out to find answers.
But to them, it’s far more than just the pursuit of ghosts — it’s also about the camaraderie that comes with operating as a unit. Founding member of the Military Veterans Paranormal, Mellanie Ramsey, told We Are The Mighty,
“We hope to show other veterans that there are other ways we can deal with PTSD and that just because you’re no longer in the military, it doesn’t mean you’re alone. Find a hobby, the more unique the better. We found a hobby that enables us to use the tools and skills we learned in the military and apply it to paranormal investigation. You can still have a mission, though it may no longer be combat related. We still matter and as long as we stick together to support one another, we can work to reduce the number of veteran suicides while still helping others and having fun. We’re proof the mission doesn’t have to be over just because you get out of service. It just changed.”
Yep. Still looks exactly like pretty much every S-6 shop in the Army.

One of their recent investigations brought them to “The Birdcage” at Fort Campbell. It’s a part of the base that’s been abandoned since the Cold War — and if you believe the rumors, it’s the Army’s equivalent to Area 51. Of course, they don’t do anything without getting proper permission from the authorities and they do plenty of historical research ahead of time.
On record, The Birdcage was where the Army stored nuclear warheads — but countless paranormal sightings have been reported in the area. Everything from ghosts to aliens to magical forces have been attributed to this site. Naturally, the paranormal investigators had to check it out.
While there, they spotted a something in OD Green running. The description of their sighting exactly matches reports from a member of 5th Special Forces Group, who saw that very same something while running through the area. After a little more digging, MVP learned that a convicted soldier had died there while trying to escape the brig. During his escape, he accidentally crossed into The Birdcage, where a highly-electrified barricade ended his attempt — and his life.
Could the spirit of this convict still be roaming the area, long after his death? It’s hard to say for sure.

The group is very serious about their hobby, but they don’t pocket any of the money they raise through the investigations. To date, they’ve raised over $4,000 for the Wounded Warrior Foundation.

The CIA files reveal that alien humanoids from Mars might have disappeared following an environmental disaster
Stargate Project was a secret operation carried out by the CIA and the US Department of Defense to investigate the potential for psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications. The project which was conducted from 1978 to 1995 involved people who have psychic abilities including remote viewing and telekinesis.
Recently 12 million previously classified pages of the Stargate Project were leaked on the internet, and it suggests that the first humans on earth might be the descendants of an advanced alien civilization that lived on Mars millions of years ago.
As per a report published in the Express.co.uk, people who possess the capability to remote viewing could view other parts of the world and even the minute nooks of the Universe using their inner eye. During the Stargate Project, one of the participants revealed that an advanced alien civilization had lived on the red planet during the ancient times.
The participant also talked about tall pyramids on the Martian surface and a group of humanoid aliens fighting hard to combat the environmental collapse of the planet. The man who had psychic abilities also pointed out the coordinates where Martian cities were located. However, the timeframe revealed by the participant was millions of years before homo sapiens started ruling the earth.
This is not the first time speculations over ancient life forms on Mars are surfacing online. In 1978, the Viking lander took a picture of the Martian surface and soon conspiracy theorists spotted a structure similar to a man’s face on the image.
After analyzing the picture, many alien buffs argued that the structure spotted could be actually an extraterrestrial monument. However, experts dismissed the alien angle, and they made it clear that these structures are actually weird rock formations.
As per experts, it is pareidolia, the ability of the human brain to form a recognizable image or patterns on unknown objects which is resulting in these visual hallucinations.
A few years ago, a Russian boy named Boriska Kipriyanovich had claimed that he had his previous birth on Mars. Boriska who is 21 years now also argued that a nuclear disaster had devastated the planet during the ancient times.
Ghost hunters and a psychic help Long Island man find his dad’s remains. After enlisting ghost hunters and a psychic, a Long Island man found the bones of his father, a Korean War vet who mysteriously disappeared nearly 60 years ago in his basement.
Bones found in a Long Island basement were discovered after a family consulted a psychic and paranormal investigators, according to reports.
Mike Carroll, 57, is convinced the bones belong to his father, a Korean War vet who mysteriously disappeared nearly 60 years ago.
George Carroll was living in Lake Grove when he vanished in 1961, leaving behind a wife and four children, ranging in age from eight months to nine years old.
The children never received a straight answer from their mother, Dorothy Carroll, on what happened to her father. Dorothy died in 1998.
The bones were discovered Halloween eve Tuesday in a spot in the basement that had been flagged by a psychic, the New York Post reports.
“They were twisted in a knot, weird-looking,” Carroll told the paper. “It was down and twisted in the dirt … not totally exposed, either.”
NEW YORK FAMILY HOPES HUMAN REMAINS FOUND IN BASEMENT WILL LEAD TO ANSWERS ABOUT MISSING FATHER
Paranormal investigators visited the home in June, Newsday reported. A sister of Carroll’s arranged the visit.
The ghost hunters told Carroll they detected an “energy” in the house when they returned this week to share their findings, according to the paper.
Suffolk police will use dental records, if available, and DNA testing to positively identify the bones, Newsday reported.
Carroll was told his father “went out and never came back.”
He told WABC-TV that it has been a rumor in the family for years that his father may be buried in the basement.
I’m even offering the Couple’s Charts at three different levels, at three different price ranges. I’m doing this so everyone of you can, at the very least, get a taste of what these charts have to offer.
I’m also adding a Solar Return Chart to all Transit Readings.The Solar Return Chart is a chart based off of the precise time the Sun returns to the exact location it was at your birth. Funny thing is, this isn’t precisely always on your birthdate. Yet even when it is, it still changes the house cusps, ascendant (rising sign), and more. It gives us a whole new layer of information behind the “still very necessary & very accurate” Transit interpretations.
