Graveyards At Night

Started by Stephanie Musarra Jun 4, 2018. 0 Replies

Do you think you're in danger of encountering evil spirits, if you walk through a graveyard at night. I walked through a graveyard one night, and as I approached a certain section of that cemetery, I sensed an evil presence. It seemed to be coming…Continue

Spirit Energy

Started by Stephanie Musarra Jun 4, 2018. 0 Replies

Have you ever walked through a graveyard, and sensed the energy from within the spirits? I sometimes walk through graveyards, and as I approach a certain tomb, I pick up vibes about who is buried there; sometimes good, sometimes bad. My grandmother…Continue

Have you always had the gift Arachnifauna?

Comment by Arachnifauna on November 19, 2019 at 1:08am

I wasn't scared at all. I've been dealings with spirits for many years. I just like to cleanse myself first before going in...we have beautiful headstones in the town near me..actually down by where I used to live years ago...the one graveyard on the hill is haunted. 

Comment by SunKat on November 18, 2019 at 5:18pm

Very peaceful... :)

Comment by Elspeth on November 18, 2019 at 5:04pm

No, SunKat it was peaceful there. I was a quiet child and the wild things came in from the fields. Granddad taught me to be respectful of the sleepers underfoot  ~ I never stepped on them would've been rude.

I found family stones there too which surprised my family. I don't think Nan told anyone. I still like graveyards, wild, peaceful places.

Comment by Elspeth on November 18, 2019 at 5:00pm

You have an amazing gift there Arachnifauna :-) 

Comment by SunKat on November 18, 2019 at 4:57pm

@Arachnafauna that is too cool!  Were you scared at all?  When we were still in the panhandle I kept telling Michael that we needed to go to New Orleans so I could see the cemeteries but sadly we never made it before we had to move.  I really hope you get to check them out!!  If you do and get some pics I would love to see them!

@Elspeth... how lovely!  And yup I do have to ask did you ever get scared playing there?  Any eerie encounters?  I love just hanging out in old cemeteries and have been known to picnic in a few.

Comment by Elspeth on November 18, 2019 at 4:39pm

This was my play area as a child. My granddad used to be the grounds man.
