Layers of a Haunting: Why Limit Ourselves?

This week, I want to put something out there for discussion: When we go out on a paranormal investigation, we seem pretty confident that we know who (and what) we’re trying to communicate with.

Disney’s The Haunted Mansion aka “Spiritualism: The Ride”

I’m a huge Disney fan. Specifically: Disneyland. I’ve only graced Disneyland Paris and Disney World once (so far). So my little write-up will be solely dedicated to Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion.

The Difference Between Real Life Ghost Hunting & Ghost Hunting on TV

10 Ships That Will Haunt Your Dreams

Hauntings don’t just happen on land, but ghosts seem to favor the seven seas! Unsurprisingly, it seems that the majority of haunted ships are tied with the military and combat. There are theories as to why this is, which I’ll get into throughout the list. I’ve had the honor of investigating four of the ships…


Spooks on a Plane: A Story of Haunted Planes

Be honest; how many of you knew this was a thing? Well, given that cars have been known to be haunted, why not planes as well? This isn’t a phenomenon that we often hear about. I’ll be truthful and say that I only became familiar with these stories through an assignment from my day job. Come…
