Ghost Tours

The spooky is exciting to me.  The story of well-researched history, that contains murder, mayhem, and a ghost or two is even better.  Since I live in Alberta, I wanted to find out about haunted ghost tours in Alberta.

Edmonton – Ghost Tours

There are different areas of Edmonton that are rich with history and stories of ghosts. I hear excellent things about Edmonton Ghost Tours and the storytelling ability of their tour guides. You will get the chance to explore the streets of Old Strathcona or learn about the history of the University of Alberta and the professors that still roam the hallways. Around Halloween, they offer up Rutherford House, the spirit of a small boy, and coffee and pumpkin pie to top off the evening tour. read more

Can dogs see Ghosts?

When thinking of the paranormal or supernatural eventually we start to wonder if animals can see ghosts and more specifically can dogs see ghosts? I will be discussing the heightened senses of dogs, and their reactions to perceived paranormal activity.

According to Animal Planet dogs have keen hearing, exceptional scent receptors in their noses, and sight that means small movements catch their attention.  As the owner of two Jack Russell Terriers I can tell you that all of these are true. I have one JRT that has exceptional eyesight and hearing and his loud, sharp bark in response to a snow flake floating by the living room window is both deafening and startling. read more

What are Ghost Orbs?

When you are curious about the paranormal you will eventually hear of ghost orbs.  What are ghost orbs?  I am going to try to answer that question in this article. I will discuss photographed orbs and different colored orbs and what they mean.

Definition

What are ghost orbs? According to the Paranormal Encyclopedia is defined as “an anomalous globe-shaped spot, either white or colored, that shows up in photographs taken at allegedly haunted locations.”

Photographed Orbs

Orbs that are captured in photographs appear as white, gold, green, blue, or red circles of light. What these orbs actually are is hotly debated. Those that believe in ghost orbs will say that an orb is the manifestation of the spirit of a deceased person. Skeptics will say that an orb is an out of focus drop of moisture or a fleck of dust. It is worth pointing out that photographed orbs seem to appear in areas that report other forms of paranormal activity first. read more

What is a Ghost?

There are different theories about what a ghost is. One theory is that a ghost is the spirit of a dead person. Another is that a ghost is the residue of an event that occurred in that environment. The third theory is that ghosts are a figment of the imagination.  I, myself am not sure what they are but I do love a good ghost story, especially a spooky ghost story.

So…what is a ghost?

When it comes to the most common theory, of a ghost being the spirit of a dead person there are sub-theories that try to explain why a ghost may exist. Perhaps a person died under suspicious circumstances, or had unfinished business and until the spirit receives justice (in the case of a murder) or has someone finish what they need doing, the spirit will not rest in peace or crossover.
