Arizona Encounters - Decide for Yourself

I've launched several investigations in my home state of Arizona recently, and while researching what others have come across here, I found the following web posts. They may interest you as well:

The GAH research team is about to reveal the report of a true, recurring residual animal energy encounter in Phoenix, Arizona.  On December 27, 2009 GAH received summary reports on all our evidence as analyzed by two separate professional paranormal investigative organizations.  In January, we will reveal their analysis of our findings and the true story  Always By My Side: Hiking With Emma, our first Arizona Ghostly Animal Haunting investigation.  tvcc

"The Haunted" Disappointing - Here is a REAL Ghost Animal Sighting Recall...

I watched the Discovery Channel's new show "The Haunted" - supposedly about ghostly encounters with animals - and came away wholly unimpressed.  Too much show and  not enough "go".  Interviews with show participants were credible enough, but there were no animal encounters - only animals perceiving an unseen presence.  We are all aware of animals' powers of perception over and above those of humans.  The truth we seek on this site is whether the spirits of animals can come back to us and live among the spirits of humans, communicate with the living, make their presence known to us...

I will give you a first hand, personal account of a ghost animal encounter - the one that has gripped my consciousness since 1993 and sparked my passion for ghost animal research.  This encounter helped me understand what had been a lifetime of animal ghost encounters and dreams that made no sense up to that time.  Bear with me as a tell you my personal story...

I was in my 20's, a young wife and mother.  I lived in New Jersey at the time and remember the fall season finally settling in, leaves falling and cool air replacing the humid summer weather.  I slept with the window open one particular night, fell into a comfortable sleep and dreamed of a man and his dog driving along staring at me from their car window.  A very ordinary, bald man with untanned skin and no distinguishing features, driving along with a gorgeous black and brown German Shepard in the front seat with him.  I looked over at the car a few times and they were still there, looking right into my eyes.  The dream did not really disturb me, and i woke the next morning thinking of the lovely Shepard wondering what his name was.

There is one main road through the small town i lived in then, and at the end was a military base.  I drove the road hundreds of times, rode the school bus from one end to the other as a student, was shuttled back and forth by my parents to and fro - there was nothing striking about the road other than how boringly familiar it was.  One early afternoon a day or so after my dream about the man and his Shepard, i was driving on this road past a convenience store/gas station and looked to my left and was passed by a bald man in a blue car with a German Shepard in the front seat.  I just glanced over quickly enough to notice those details, but also noticed he was staring very intently at me.  He seemed to slow down, and I looked again a few seconds later and he stared straight at me again - so did his dog.  My stomach knotted and i swallowed hard enough for it to hurt my throat.  This was the man and the dog from my dream just days ago!  In every detail, the encounter played itself out exactly like the dream.  The pale man, the blue car, the beautiful Shepard, their stares.  I quickly became concerned about driving while distracted like this, and pulled over into a parking lot to collect myself.  I jumped out of the car and my eyes followed the car as he drove ahead of me out of sight.  Needless to say i was alarmed.  Alarmed enough to take a full 20 minutes before i drove off again.

The encounter did make me sit back and think of all the times animals had entered my dreams and my conscious world and foretold of a death, or loss or tragedy.  I remembered several recurring dreams of a black snake chasing me through a spanish-style house, three cats whose mouths mewed but made no sound, and one where a pack of dogs played and romped until they saw me, then stopped to sit quietly just wagging their tails panting with their tongues out, watching me pass.  I loved animals as a child and love them even more now.  I just thought these were normal dreams and thoughts for someone like me.  I researched for years and now realize that animal spirits can be messengers and have been since recorded time.  I made the connection in my life and it has played out many more times since that incident.

Six days after encountering the man and the dog in 1993, my two youngest children were severely injured in a car accident.  Both survived.   sz

My German Shepard's Ghost Visit

I found this story amazing and very similiar to two stories I discovered in Arizona this month...  please read on.
"The incident took place in Tampa, Florida in the summer of 2005. I was lying in bed watching the Today show; it was about 7:30 in the morning. I was recovering from a major car accident that I was in a couple of months before. I was propped up on four pillows, sitting up in bed with my cat Mischief next to me and my little Lhasa-apso sleeping by my knees. My injury from the accident was a broken neck, so I was wearing a special plastic collar called an Aspen collar. I was to wear this collar for about nine months. This collar held my neck in an upright position, so I could only see what was directly in front of me and some peripheral vision.
As I was sitting up sipping some tea my husband had made for me before he left for work, I saw my German Shepherd dog Bear coming around the foot of my bed up to the right side of me. This dog had been dead for four years, three months! He died of a seizure on May 20, 2001, and the day this incident happened was August, 2005. (My accident was June 10, 2005.)
I couldn't believe what I was seeing! My cat also saw him: her eyes followed him all the way up the right side of my bed, and her long, black fur was sticking straight up. All of a sudden, I felt a big cold dog nose and a big lick on the side of my neck that went beyond the collar... and that was it... he was gone!
I was shaking so much and crying. I couldn't beleive what just happened. This dog was very protective in life to all of us, my husband and I and my little dogs and my stepson. I'll never forget how my dog came to me that morning at such a hard and scary time in my life. I'll always love you, Bear."   Darlene Foy...

More White House Ghosts: Presidential Pets Regan's "Rex" and Obama's "Beau"

Ever since the White House was first occupied in 1800, there have been rumors of hauntings, but this story direct from the President’s mouth. No, not President Obama.  This story is directly from the lips of Ronald Reagan.
 It was March 18, 1986, when the President entertained the dinner table throughout the meal and the story I remember best was about his encounters with the White House ghostly spirits.    According to the President, Rex, the King Charles Cavalier spaniel who had recently replaced Lucky as First Dog, had twice barked frantically in the Lincoln Bedroom and then backed out and refused to set foot over the threshold.  Another evening, while the Reagans were watching TV in their room, Rex stood up on his hind legs, pointed his nose at the ceiling and began barking at something invisible overhead.  To their amazement, the dog walked around the room, barking at the ceiling.
 “I started thinking about it,” the President continued, “And I began to wonder if the dog was responding to an electric signal too high-pitched for human ears, perhaps beamed toward the White House by a foreign embassy.  I asked my staff to look into it.”
 The President laughed and said, “I might as well tell you the rest.  A member of our family [he meant his daughter Maureen] and her husband always stay in the Lincoln Bedroom when they visit the White House.  Some time ago the husband woke up and saw a transparent figure standing at the bedroom window looking out.  Then it turned and disappeared.  His wife teased him mercilessly about it for a month.  Then, when they were here recently, she woke up one morning and saw the same figure standing at the window looking out.  She could see the trees right through it.  Again it turned and disappeared.”
The Lincoln bedroom was not a bedroom when Lincoln was President—it was his Cabinet Room where he signed the Emancipation Proclamation.  It’s well known that Abraham Lincoln and his wife held séances in the White House, attempting to contact the spirit of their son Willie, who died there and who has been seen walking the halls.
I wonder if the Obamas have encountered any ghostly knockings yet, or if their dog Beau has suffered the same anxiety attacks as Reagan’s dog Rex...  it wouldn't surprise me if they have.  Tvcc

My First Haunting

Back in the spring of 1993 my mother died and left me a small
sum of money. My mother and I had always had a troubled
relationship. At the time of her death, we were not even on
speaking terms. So the inheritance came as a surprise, and
the feelings that came with it, mixed as they were with grief,
confusion, and the knowledge that with her death we would
never be able to mend our relationship, overwhelmed me.

I took the money and bought a small car and a small house. 
Recently divorced and a single parent with limited income, I 
had accepted that home ownership was probably now out of 
the realm of possibility, and yet suddenly, because of my 
mother’s death, my children and I had a home to call our own. 
I was grateful, and I was very sad.

We weren’t in the house more than a day or two when my 
children started to talk about seeing a cat inside the house, 
and hearing the voices of other children. At first I dismissed 
their stories: We didn’t own a cat, and I figured the voices 
they heard were almost certainly kids who lived in the 
neighborhood. Then, one day, alone in the house, out of the 
corner of my eye I caught sight of what looked like a cat 
darting through the kitchen and down the basement stairs. 
Immediately I heard what sounded like children singing at 
the bottom of those stairs.

Nervous and bit frightened, I descended the stairs only to 
discover nothing but an empty basement. The sound stopped 
as soon as I reached the bottom of the staircase and of course 
no cat was anywhere to be seen. I walked towards the end of 
the basement farthest from the stairs, and suddenly, as I 
reached the far wall, the sound of children singing seemed to 
be coming from upstairs where I had just been. I went back 
up the stairs and the sound stopped. No one was outside the 
house. No one was inside the house. No radios or TVs were 
playing anywhere.

Over the course of the next few months this phenomenon 
repeated itself several times. More than once the sounds 
even came when another adult was around as a witness, 
so it wasn’t just me hearing them, and it wasn’t just my kids. 
These sounds of children singing would seem to be in the 
basement, but then, as soon as we descended the stairs the 
sounds would shift to the upstairs. No neighborhood kids or 
sources for the sounds were ever found.

Be Careful... Its Halloween.

You are certainly aware of the season.  Because of that season, the nights of Friday October 30th, Saturday 31st and Sunday November 1st will be nights of increased psychic energy, paranormal activity and ghostly spectral sightings.  You have nothing to fear from them, however the shock of seeing or feeling something eerie may frighten you.  Stay in groups.  Do not let children out alone.  Anoint yourself with prayers.  Be prepared...  have a happy Trick or Treat night.  Tvcc
