Great local Ghost Stories book: Vineyard Supernatural

I recently enjoyed reading a great book written about many local haunts in Martha's Vineyard,
Massachusetts. A friend of mine picked me up a copy of "Vineyard Supernatural" by Holly Mascott Nadler and it's a must-read. 
  It's wonderfully written and very engaging, and will take you to many places on Martha's Vineyard where hauntings occur often. The author is a resident who also owns a bookstore and does ghost walks, so she's very familiar with the local "haunts." 
  Whether you've been to the island or not, there are so many ghosts there, that you'll find this fascinating. 

ABOUT THE BOOK: Holly Nadler, the ghost lady of Martha's Vineyard, won lots of attention for her collections of ghostly accounts on the island in Haunted Island. Now, in her second volume, Nadler brings her sassiness and spunk to investigating and delivering the dirt on even more eerie happenings on an island that is home to the rich, famous ― and, yes, the otherworldly. In fact, she says, Martha's Vineyard is America's most haunted island.

In the News: The home from ‘Amityville Horror’ Pending sale

Here's a house I wouldn't want to live in... but you might, if you like a fright!  The home from ‘Amityville Horror’ located at 108 Ocean Ave, Amityville, NY, went on the market in June 2016 for $850,000 and as of January 2017, the sale is pending. In May 2010, when it was previously on the market, the price was 1.15 million dollars, so the house has seen a huge drop in price over the last 6 1/2 years. Below is the article from the New York Daily News.

    ************************************************************************

    The house that sparked “The Amityville Horror” is currently on the market for $850,000.

    (Gerald E O Neill Team/realtor.com/Coldwell Banker Harbor Light)








    BY

    The house that sparked “The Amityville Horror” book and multiple movies on the murders that took place there is back on the market.
    Currently listed for $850,000, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom Long Island home at 108 Ocean Ave. is up for sale through Coldwell Banker Harbor Light owner and broker Jerry O’Neil.
    “I’m very familiar with the house,” he told the Daily News. “A friend of mine from high school, his family owned it. I spent a lot of time in this house as a kid. It’s a beautiful home.”
    The broker added that he does not know what to expect regarding how long it will take to sell the home, which was built in 1927.
    Get out! No, really, Amityville Horror house sold
    “Real estate is a very fickle product,” he said. “Sometimes you’re disappointed, sometimes you’re pleasantly surprised.”
          O’Neil, whose brother also owned the home on the Amityville River at one point after the murders, had no reservations about accepting the listing and is taking extra steps to make sure only serious buyers get to step foot in the house and take a tour.“Buyers are going to see this only through brokers,” he said.
    The application, which O’Neill’s office will have to approve three to five days before the desired date of the viewing, states that anyone interested in seeing the listing must be financially pre-qualified and have proof of “funds.”
    Last year’s property taxes for the home were $20,856
    Slaying of family in spooky Long Island house inspired 'The Amityville Horror'
    Caroline D’Antonio, who bought the house in 2010 for $950,000 though at one point it was listed for more than $1 million, is selling it because her husband died last year and she wants to downsize.
            She has already purchased a condo on a different part of Long Island.
    The official listing for 108 Ocean Ave. simply describes the home as a “Stately center hall colonial on Amityville River,” adding that the house deed includes a “large” boat house, two car garage and a boat slip.
          In 1974, Ronald DeFeo, 23, killed his parents and four siblings on the property. All of the victims were found face down in their respective beds inside the home.

    How to Clear Your House of Ghosts and Negative Energy

    Recently I received an email about some serious issues occurring in a home where there appears to be an Earth-bound ghost. As I discuss in my books "Ghosts and Spirits" and "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" if you have an Earthbound ghost in your home they emanate negative emotional energy- causing the living to argue, have anxiety, fear, depression, and impatience. That in turn energizes a ghost, so it's a vicious cycle that needs to be broken by crossing the ghost over.
      Since many people have this issue so I thought I would share the advice on how to clear your home. - Rob 
    What I would suggest is the following:
    1) Invite a LOT of light in the home
    2) paint dark rooms white or bright colors
    3) light white candles to invite light and positive energy
    4) play soft instrumental music (you can find a relaxation channel on pandora.com for free)
    5) TOSS out any objects that you think may have negative energy
    6) Clean the house and remove clutter. clutter invites negativity
    7) Tell the entities that this is YOUR HOME.  They do NOT belong there and are not welcome. They should cross into the light
    to be with their loved ones, they do not belong here.  
    - You can send them to a funeral home or hospital nearby
    8) At night, picture yourself and your family surrounded by white light of protection. 
    9) Bring in a paranormal team with mediums who can help clear your house.
    10) Get sage and either light it to emit smoke, or get it in a spray and spray it in every room. 
    MORE ADVICE FROM RUTHIE LARKIN, THE BEANTOWN MEDIUM:
    In addition to what Rob said, I would also purchase a few Himalayan Salt Lamps that you can pick up at a Home Goods store for $20 - $30 each. Leave them on and place them around your home where your family usually spends the most time. I would also put a few sprinkles of Himalayan Salt between all your windows and the screens to keep negative energy from entering your home. If you live in a house you can also surround your home with a thin line of corn meal. This is a North American Indian way to smudge and is very powerful. How old is your grandson? If he is an adolescent or teen the negative energy could become more intense. I would definitely agree with Rob in saying that all members of the family currently living and regularly visiting your home need to be assessed by a Psychic Medium while in your home and then your entire home needs to be cleared. There are also many Shamans who could perform this cleansing for you…be sure to get referrals.

    Q&A: Do Pets Reincarnate?

    One question that I get often is "Do dogs or cats (or any pets) reincarnate?" 

    ANSWER: Yes, every living thing reincarnates. All living things including people and animals reincarnate. Every living thing has a soul, which is basically, the energy within, plus memories, personalities and knowledge.
       However, they typically all wait to come back until everyone they know in this life has crossed over.
        I've heard from some pet parents who lost a dog or a cat who have said after their pet passed away, they adopted another dog or cat, and that new pet shows some of the same habits that their pet who passed had! 
       So, people have wondered if their dog or cat had been reincarnated. The answer to that is "no."  What's happening is that the spirit of their late pet comes back and trains the new pet with some of the habits they had during their time on Earth.  That doesn't mean that the newly adopted pet is taught the "good" habits!
       For example, if your newly adopted dog turns over their food bowl when hungry, and your previous dog did that, your dog in spirit has likely taught the new dog to do that.

    Special Friday 13th Guest Blog: Haunted LA: A Rose Among Thorns

    Today, Friday the 13th, I've got a special guest blog for you, written by an expert in haunted places in Los Angeles, California! Jenny Holt is a a freelance travel writer who has teamed up with a haunted hiking site to develop a guide covering the most haunted places in the city. They've covered places all over the U.S. too. You can check out her article here: http://backpackerverse.com/haunted-places-to-visit-in-los-angeles/

    Here's Jenny's guest blog: 

    Haunted LA: A Rose Among Thorns
    Boris Karloff's house (when you visit the Rose Garden)

    You can find haunted places all across America. Some of the best come from the older sites, places where you feel history and decay, some of them come from historic tragedies or tragic lives, and others come with a sprinkle of stardust. Like any other city, Los Angeles has its fair share of haunted houses and locations.

    As someone who grew up on black and white horror movies, you might imagine that moving to LA was a dream come true. The most exciting thing of all, was to see the lots and locations where Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi strut their stuff. This meant the first place I went to was Karloff’s Rose Garden on Bowmont Drive.

    The most iconic of Frankenstein’s monster actors, as well as playing Frankenstein himself, and the Mummy, Karloff was also a keen gardener. His rose garden was so beautiful several friends asked to have their ashes scattered there. He duly obliged and created one of the most peaceful yet haunted places in the city. This is not the only haunted place in LA though it is my personal favorite. Also check out the Linda Vista Hotel, the Silent Movie Theater, the Wax Museum and many other the most haunted places in Los Angeles.

    Spirits Give Signs in Times of Stress

     Spirits have a way of giving us signs to let us know they're around in times of stress or uncertainty. Just look for the signs. Here's an example of a sign I got from my dog Sprite who passed, and how it alleviated my fear of heights at the perfect time. 


    Sprite's butterfly
    On July 8, 2013 we said a sad goodbye to our 16 1/2 year old dachshund Sprite. The week that Sprite passed, a yellow and black butterfly followed us around daily. Friends who read about Sprite's butterfly encountered the same kind of butterfly right after reading about it.

    Two years later, when my husband and I were on vacation we went to a park with zip lines (because he's always wanted to do that).  I'm afraid of heights, (so I was stressed!)  but didn't mind trying it (that's what you do when you care with someone). There were 2 Zip Line routes, each with 7 zip lines. I think they were both about 150 feet off the ground.  

    As we were going up the first Zip Line tower, I  was dealing with anxiety from my fear of heights. As we got to the top of the (open faced stairs) and to the tower platform, suddenly a yellow and black butterfly flew around my feet and lingered for a short time. I KNEW it was Sprite and I heard "don't worry daddy, I'm here to protect you." That gave me the courage to do all of the zip lining.

     What's odd is that it was the ONLY yellow and black butterfly we saw the entire day. All of the other butterflies were blue with black outlines on the wings, and one orange butterfly. There is no such thing as a coincidence.  This was a message from Sprite when I needed to hear it.


    That's what spirits do. They send us signs to comfort us when we need it. We just need to be aware of what they are. (That's why I wrote the books "Ghosts and Spirits," "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," and the 2 Pets and the Afterlife books. )

    A Wake Up Knock from Spirit!

    Our loved ones always let us know they're around during the holidays and the can do it in many different ways, from dropping a coin, to a favorite song. This one was unique. On Dec. 12th, I got a "wake up call" from my parents in spirit to ensure that I wasn't late for work.
       That morning after sending my other half off to work at 5am, I went back to bed and put our dogs up on the bed with me. For some reason, I had deactivated my alarm that usually wakes me again at 6 a.m. to start my day. 
      At 7:07 a.m. I was awakened out of a sound sleep by three loud knocks on what sounded like the bedroom door or wall!
       The second I woke up,  I immediately thought it was my parents standing there.
     - A quick run to the door and look outside  - and there was no one around.  So mom and dad were visiting for Christmas.
      If you're suddenly awakened and you're thinking about someone who passed, whether person or pet, then that's who woke you up.

    An Important New Year Message from Spirits

    The Earth has turned another year old. It's been around 4.543 billion years, but mankind has only been around a tiny fraction of that, yet we've made such an impact on all life. Now that we've arrived in the year 2017 C.E. (Common Era) or A.D., we've got another chance to be better than last year. That's what spirits want us to do. Be better people.
    WHAT SPIRITS WANT US TO KNOW -   
    As I wrote in my book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," many spirits have given messages urging their loved ones and everyone to treat everyone equally, help others, welcome others, discard fear, to not hate people who are different from them, to accept everyone regardless of what religion or non-religion they are, to accept people of all colors, nationalities, sexualities, race, or gender. Everyone is EQUAL. Everyone deserves peace, love and happiness. 

    SOME WAYS TO IMPROVE YOURSELF - 
    If you think you're racist (and you know if you are), try to make friends with a person of color. If you're homophobic, befriend a gay person (although you likely already have one in your circle of friends and don't know it). Be KIND and look at the world from someone else's perspective. 

    SPIRITS GET IRRITATED WITH BAD BEHAVIOR -
       Spirits get irritated and extremely disappointed in people when they use their religions to divide, spread intolerance and hatred. Spirits are disgusted with the way some people mistreat children, animals, gay people, minorities, women, spouses or partners. There is NO excuse for being hateful, and spirits warn the living that if they are, they may very likely find themselves trapped on Earth for all eternity as an Earth-bound ghost - unable to communicate with their loved ones in spirit.
    HATRED & BAD BEHAVIOR LEAVES YOU TRAPPED IN THE AFTERLIFE- 
       Being a ghost is like being in an isolation prison cell where no one can hear you or help you unless you fortunate enough to encounter a medium who will take pity on you and help you cross over to join your loved ones in spirit.
    THE NEW YEAR'S MESSAGE - 
      SO, a word of caution going into 2017 - TREAT EVERYONE EQUALLY.. Don't hate, discriminate, mentally or physically abuse. Don't abandon or mis-treat anyone including animals. (People who abuse or abandon animals will likely find themselves Earthbound after their die).  
        If you think your religion tells you to hate people who are of other races, who are gay or of other religions, then there's something WRONG with your religion. (I have 2 neighbors who treat me and others like dirt because of their religion. I pity them).
      BE A HERO TO EVERYONE -  including and especially strangers. We all love reading good news stories about gestures of kindness. Be that person who extends kindness to all.  
       I'll end with a quote that sums up how spirits want us to be: "Be the person your dog thinks you are."
