Happy Deceased Anniversary

Girl in coffin at calico ghost town

As you may recall from my IG stories I was in Vegas a couple weeks ago with my Beast Fiend for a last minute two day whirlwind playdate. We had lots of fun doing many and sundry things but one thing that happened I didn’t share on my stories. That was how I passed along an anniversary message from a deceased wife to her husband.

I’ve mentioned it before but I haven’t really delved too deeply here into one of more unusual talents. Briefly; I’ve always been a “sensitive” but a Near Death Experience several years ago has turned that into a full blown clairsentience with a dash of clairvoyance and clairaudience as well.

Feeling the dead is pretty much a full time experience for me. They are, after all, everywhere. But because my gift is more in the feels range as opposed to a ghost just saying, “tell Uncle Joe I left the will in the basement cabinet” it’s been really difficult for me to be able to offer much help unless someone seeks me out and asks me to reach out to someone. And even then all I can offer is vague images and emotions. So I mostly exist with my ghosts quietly.

Vegas was different. The Beast Fiend insisted on a buffet for dinner so we were in line waiting and a lovely older gent was right in front of us. When the Beast Fiend and I get together we’re pretty extra so this gentleman started talking to us. He was there in Vegas celebrating his anniversary. Only…his wife was dead. He was there without her. Now he wasn’t completely alone, he had a friend there, but he was alone for dinner and I could just feel how much he missed her.

As we were standing there I started to feel the familiar buzzing I get when a ghost is around and the conversation with this man and my friend faded into the background. I kept seeing a dog. And a feeling of love and concern.

I focused and taking a chance on not offending him I blurted, “Do you have a dog?”

No, he answered. But they used to have two and both of them were in the room with her when he came home to find her dead.

“She wants you to know it’s ok and she says Happy Anniversary.”

He didn’t say anything and his face was sort of blank.

I said, “I hope I havent upset or offended you.”

No, he said. He was just a little overwhelmed. He’d been waiting for years to get some sort of sign that she was ok.

I told him that I thought he’d just got it.

We all went our own ways and that was that.

Like I said its a rare opportunity when I can help someone like that, especially a stranger, and it always leaves me vaguely wondering if I should have kept my mouth shut instead. Maybe all it did was give him a good story to laugh about with his friends and make fun of. I like to think, however, that it actually gave him some peace and helped him feel not so alone on his Anniversary.

Til next time, my darling Misfits,

Morticia Does Knotts Scary Farm

Greetings Misfits. Just as I brought you with me to Halloween at Disneyland a few weeks ago today I’d like to have you come along with Spawn and I to Knotts Scary Farm.

A friend is one of the main monsters there and we were able to get in with him on a VIP tour of the Haunt.

I gotta tell you it was the way to go. We didn’t wait in a single line. Walked right in to all the mazes and rides and had special seating at one of the shows. I also highly recommend going on a less heavily trafficked day such as a Thursday. Less crowds mean shorter lines and more monsters to go round. And the more monsters the merrier!

I’ve added some of my favorite photos from the night below but you can see the night better if you click the link to watch my YouTube video. Just remember, I don’t have a cameraman or crew following me when I so these videos. Its just me and my cellphone. So no judging.

Knotts Scary Farm- click me!

Enjoy and I’ll see you soon, Misfits!

My Disneyland Halloween

Last week I took a much needed day off and went to Disneyland for their Halloween celebration. Now I like the rides and shows and so on as much as the next guy but what really pulls me to The Happiest Place On Earth is the artistic side of things. To me it’s just one giant art installation and I love to simply grab a latte and spend hours walking around looking at displays and shop windows and…well…the art that is Disneyland.

I made a YouTube video about my day which you can see here:

But I’d love to show you some of my photos from the day so you can maybe see what I see when I visit.
