Ghost, sprite or sylph: What is that spirit?

When Pride Hansen, owner of Metaphysical Learning Center in Reno, approached me about teaching a spirit identification class for the ghost series I manage, I admit I’d never given much thought to the idea of diverse entities in the spirit world. Here's what I learned. Angels Years ago, I’d thought angels only existed in the Bible [...]

Dancing with the ghosts

Recently, I participated in my second investigation of the Old Washoe Club/Millionaire’s Club in Virginia City, Nevada. Read my post “Inside Moon” about my 2008 visit there. In the late 1800’s, the upper stories of the Washoe housed the exclusive Millionaire’s Club—a bastion of the Comstock Lode’s rich and influential—where power deals had been forged [...]

Sensitive Jason Lindo spoke at the Nevada Ghost and Paranormal Conference some years back. As a small child, [...]

An old tin cup

My parents, Darlene and Bryan, spend their golden years volunteering for state parks all over the country. One of their favorite places is Berlin Ichthyosaur Park located in the Nevada outback. They archived artifacts there in the off-season, when they have the park to themselves. Berlin, a short-lived mining community perched on an arid central [...]

Antiques hitchhikers

My mother, Darlene, possesses psychic abilities. In the early 1960s, she once saw a shadow man in the haunted duplex we lived in near Santa Anita Racetrack in southern California, and then she had no experiences with ghosts for close to 40 years (when she awoke to the crashing glass at the Mizpah—see earlier [...]

We are all connected, so share the positivity

This blog was written by my friend, Nichole Relaford. We were discussing this over tea a few weeks back, and I loved her thoughts regarding intention and gratitude. I’ve always heard we’re connected and, over time, this idea’s grown stronger within me. The water molecule experiment. Dr. Masaru Emoto (link) studied the molecular structure of [...]
