Octobers usually are my busy season because that is typically when everyone seems to be more focused on the paranormal, thanks to Halloween, but I was not expecting to be this busy, and it wasn't even the paranormal that made things crazy. It was just life in general. I didn't even realize that Halloween is in eight days (well, five days when this post goes live) until I saw something about Halloween on Facebook. This is honestly the first chance all month I have been able to sit down to my laptop to write. It feels so good to be back at my desk.
Since embracing the witchy side of me, not much has changed. A lot of what I did was already a bit witchy: carrying crystals for their various meanings, burning sage to cleanse my home, reading tarot cards, researching what my dreams might be trying to me, and using different herbs for different reasons.
I knew when I decided to focus on haunted military bases this week, I would have to need to reach out to other military spouses to hear about their stories of the paranormal on military bases. I reached out to a few of my favorite MilSO groups on Facebook and boy, did they come through!
While we lived in Iwakuni, I often heard about some of the various haunted locations in Okinawa. There are so many places, legends, and customs that I could (and will) write several posts about them but today I am going to focus on some of the paranormal activity that I have heard about happening on military bases.
The forest in today’s post is one I have been told before to never visit if I get a chance to go to England. While it’s nickname is enough to tempt me to walk among the trees, the mysteries left unsolved involving this location are more than enough to make me think twice. Are you brave enough to walk the paths that run through these woods?
The two hotels featured in today’s post have feature spirits that have come back to either find their loved ones or to bring peace to their family members. Love keeps them wandering the hallways and surprising guests with their frequent visits. Resting in peace doesn’t have to mean you have to leave your home.
Most everyone I meet loves dogs. Dogs are typically loving and faithful, unlike most humans. In fact, when I meet a human that doesn’t like dogs, I make sure I steer clear of those folks as much as possible.
With Valentine’s Day this week, I wanted to focus on stories of ghosts that show love lasts long after death. There is no way that I could have romantic stories this week and not include my favorite spirit love story.
