A Psychic Reading, and a Paranormal Update


Since I was a teenager, I've been interested in the paranormal. I come by it naturally since my grandmother and mother leaned in that direction. My grandmother loved to read her horoscope in the newspaper, and Mama was very open to psychic phenomena, and she was very intuitive.

Daddy took pictures that often contained ectoplasm, but he'd just say that the film messed up, not realizing that many of his photographs were actually paranormal.

My brother, Nick, and I both inherited the paranormal photography talent from Daddy. Mama didn't normally take many pictures, but I suspect that if she had, she would have had that gift, as well.

After Greg and I were married, we discovered that he, too, was talented in psychic photography! In fact, Greg could fill a book with his paranormal photographs if he wanted to. It's just that he, like Mama, doesn't take nearly as many photographs as I do.

The truth is that all of us have at least one psychic gift, whether we realize it or not. After you find your gift, you need to use and develop it.

There are several psychic abilities besides psychic photography-having psychic dreams, hearing and/or seeing the paranormal, etc.

I can take paranormal photos, but I don't know how to interpret them, so that is where people like Maria come in. Maria is very gifted in her ability to give psychic readings. I call her on the phone whenever I need to know something in the realm of the paranormal.

A few days ago, I got a very informative psychic reading from this amazing psychic that I hadn't contacted in over a year. I had a lot to ask her, and this reading lasted for over an hour!

First, I asked her about a photo that Greg had taken a couple of weeks ago-

This photo is completely untouched except for the added watermark.

It was a picture of a sunset with several wispy clouds, and in the lower right side of the picture is vibrant white cloud-shaped ectoplasm. And that's not all! Notice also the other faint ectoplasm and several orbs in the photo. At the bottom center of the picture is a small colored orb.

In Maria's analysis of  Greg's photo, she said that there were a lot of dead people in our area, due to the Civil War, and that the spirits like Greg's energy.

Another wonderful psychic, Elaine, (who is now a spirit herself, and is featured in my paranormal book*) once told me that anytime you see something glowing in a photo (like in Greg's photo above), that it's paranormal.

Also, I have a paranormal update. In last month's "Spirit Photographs" blog post, "Eerie Spirit Photo," on Saturday, February 18, 2023, there was a picture of a tree that I took. Maria said that the spirits liked to be acknowledged by me.

I have a lot more to tell you about Maria's amazing reading that I'll save to write about in next month's blog post, including showing you a partial eerie photo that my brother recently sent me that is really different than any I have ever seen. It's really creepy, and it frightens me although I've seen and taken a lot of really strange photographs myself!

To be continued next month...

*My book is "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind," and it is full of paranormal photography (with narrative), that Nick, Greg, and I have taken. For more information about my book on Amazon Kindle, please click the widget above.

Eerie Spirit Photo!


A few weeks ago, Greg and I went to Wytheville, Virginia on business. On the way back, we decided to stop at a convenience store. As we drove into the parking lot, I noticed some land and a few pretty trees growing on it. One of the trees was especially nice. I told Greg that I would like to stop by and photograph the one tree that I liked when we came back out of the store. (I try to photograph anything that looks interesting or unique since I sell downloads of some of my photographs on a stock photo website.)

When we came back out, a few minutes later, I noticed it was somewhat darker, around dusk. I was thankful that it wasn't any darker, and I quickly took several pictures.

I was really pleased with a couple of my photos.

This was my favorite one-

I really like the way the tree picture turned out. However, I never dreamed that it would have something that looked like a moon since there was actually no moon in that area! I had to conclude that it was a large orb! Also, notice that there is ectoplasm as well as other faint orbs near the "moon." In addition, there is light green ectoplasm on the tree on the right hand side of the photo. I believe it would be fair to say that this is an eerie spirit photo!

I can easily understand why there is all of this paranormal activity since this is actually a graveyard!

In my newly republished memoir, "Down Memory Lane," I have several photographs and a few new chapters. One of these chapters is entitled "Haunting Memories." This chapter, with spirit photographs, is about some of my paranormal adventures at different times in my life.

For more information about my memoir, as well as my paranormal book, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind," please see the widgets above. Both of these books are for sale on Amazon. My memoir is in both the paperback and the Kindle versions, and my paranormal book is just in the Kindle version.

Colorful Paranormal Orbs


Greg and I recently went on a daytrip to a store after I had seen several photographs of the store on the Internet, two of which had several small orbs in them. The photos of the store had been taken by several different people, and the ones with the orbs were taken by the same person who, no doubt, has the gift of spirit photography just as Greg and I do.

I decided to take several pictures of the store to see if I could capture any orbs myself, and I was not disappointed!

Here are two of my photos which really amazed us, even though we have taken a lot of paranormal pictures in the past!-

The only changes I made to these two photos was that I blotted out the name of the store on the building, and the license plate numbers on the cars. Also, I enhanced the photos, and added my watermark. I took one picture before we entered the store, and the other one after we came out of the store.

Apparently, the energy in these photos is not evil, but, instead, these colorful, paranormal orbs have positive energy. (That's good news!) The large blue and purple orbs in the lower left of the photos show peace and protection. The white part of the large orb in the first photo shows peace, harmony, and love. The orange one shows hope, healing, strength, and courage.

Besides regular orbs, there are also some moving orbs.

I feel that this is a message from positive, spiritual beings that want me to encourage everyone, to let you know that all is going to be well, to not be discouraged, no matter how bad things seem right now. God and His angels are watching over us, protecting us! We just have to pray and believe.

For a lot more (over 100!) paranormal photographs with orbs, moving orbs, ectoplasm, shadow ghosts, vortexes, etc., taken here in the United States and abroad that my husband, Greg, my brother, Nick, and I have taken, check out my first book, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind."

Strange and Unexplained!


On this post, I want to tell you about all of the strange and unexplained things that Greg and I have been experiencing during the past couple of weeks-

We have had things not working-our car, two different parts of our computer, my label maker, and our washing machine, but miraculously, they all started working again!

Another strange thing that happened recently was that I was shopping at our local pet store for cat food, when another woman was there as well, looking for the very same brand of cat food that I was. I wanted to get new two new flavors of the food that I had seen online for our cats to try, and the nice woman helped me look for them, and together, we found them. Normally, both she and I buy our cat food from the same online company. 

I asked her what her name was, and she said that it was Becky, which is my name. She was also born the same month I was, and she lived in an old, over-one hundred-year-old house, and you might have guessed it, Greg and I also live in an old, over-one hundred-year-old house!

She told me that her husband had died five years ago, and that she had a sick friend who was in the hospital, and that she was worried about her, so I told her that I would pray for her friend. She thanked me for that, and I thanked her for helping me find the cat food.

I told Greg about my meeting the woman, and he thought it was strange also.

Then, as if this weren't enough, a couple of weeks ago, I was upstairs, walking through our art room, when I noticed that two of my photo collages were lying face down on top of some arty calendars that I had on display there. 

Calendars on display with two photo collages. 
(This is how they normally look. They have been like this for the past three years, except that every January I put a new calendar on the far wall.)

I wondered how the collages ended up like that. We have two indoor cats, but how a cat could knock them both down without messing up the calendars that are loosely lying there is beyond my understanding. I simply picked up the collages, and put them back where they belonged. 

I got busy with other things, and completely forgot to mention the incident to Greg, when a few days later, Greg told me that he had heard a noise in the art room when he was in the bedroom changing clothes, and that he went to investigate. He then described the very same thing that had happened to me-the collages had fallen over without disturbing the calendars! He couldn't explain this unusual phenomenon either.

Mysterious things do sometimes happen, and I try to make sense of them.

As for the incidents Greg and I have recently experienced, I would interpret them like this-

~ As for the things that tore up and fixed themselves, I would say that it 's God's way of saying that no matter how bad things appear to be, that He is in control, and can fix all things, that we just have to be positive and believe.
~ I think that I was meant to meet the sweet lady in the pet store for a couple of reasons. It was to remind us all that we need to help and support each other, especially during this time of the year, and that kindness matters.
~ Regarding the calendar incident, it could be that some of my artistic family members who have passed on are trying to encourage us to work on our art as well as other things since the collages were photographs of them and us and our artwork.

I haven't consulted my psychic in several months, but I plan to do so soon to see if my interpretations of the strange things that have been happening are correct. I also have some other things that I need to discuss with her. Please stay tuned for more....

If you need a last minute (and inexpensive!) gift for someone or even for yourself, I'd like to recommend my Kindle book, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind," which is on Amazon. It's full of paranormal photographs (over 100!) that my husband, brother, and I have taken  For more information, please see the widget above.

Love, Greg and Becky

Eerie Photograph!


I have a really eerie photograph to share with you in this post today! 

I was wondering a few days ago what to put on today's blog post since nothing significant had shown up since my last blog post which I published last month. 

Then, earlier this week, around evening, I happened to look out our back door, and to my amazement, I saw our neighbor's sheep on our property. He usually keeps them on his farm, but this time they escaped, and they seemed to enjoy eating our nice green grass.

Although it was misting rain, I grabbed my camera and ran out onto our deck to try to get some pictures of the sheep since I love taking pictures of animals.

 All I did to this photo was lighten it up and clarify it a bit, and I added my watermark. 

I didn't even notice the long streak of light midway in the picture until I put it on the computer. The streak seems to go from left to right, and there is more of it in front of the tree trunk. A few sheep are blurred because they are moving fast, but the streak of light doesn't seem to have anything to do with the sheep.

I believe this streak is ectoplasm. The misty rain must have made the conditions just right for a spirit or even several spirits to manifest. (This is not fog.) I guess the spirits were attracted to the sheep. These spirits could be either human spirits or even animals, maybe even other sheep who have passed on.

I have a lot more (over 100!) spirit photographs in my book on Amazon, entitled "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind" by Becky Arnott that you might enjoy. It has paranormal photographs that my husband, brother, and I took that not only have ectoplasm, but orbs, vortexes, shadow ghosts, and even see-through ghosts!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Paranormal Places



There are several paranormal places I'd like to share with you in this blog post.

The first one features a relatively new business that is in a really old building in historic Abingdon, Virginia. Here is a picture of it that I took a couple of weeks ago-

Notice all of the ectoplasm in this photograph! It's on the upper right window, as well as on the large windows below. A large streak comes from above to the awning. I took another picture of this building, and it was very similar to this one.

This is not the only building in Abingdon that is old, for most of the buildings there are very old. It's generally the old places that tend to attract spirits, that have ghosts. (I'll show another haunted business in Abingdon at the end of  this blog post.)

My brother, Nick, and his wife, Lisa, recently traveled to two areas that apparently are paranormal, that are very haunted.

The first place they visited was Charleston, South Carolina (This is another place that has some really old buildings.) where they went on a haunted ghost tour.

Then, they spent the night at Embassy Suites in an old building which is supposed to be haunted,

especially room M113!

Nick said they "didn't hear or see anything unusual. The building was once the Citadel Military Academy back in the 1800's, so there are areas that have a creepy vibe!"

Their other trip was to Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary in Petros, Tennessee which is no longer a working prison. Instead, they now offer special tours, etc. to the public. 

 Since the prison is apparently haunted, it offers an overnight paranormal tour. Brushy has even been featured on some paranormal television shows.

Nick said that he and Lisa did the self-guided daytime tour of the prison where Nick had his own "EVP session with (his) phone recorder in a secluded area of the facility" where they heard "a subtle odd sound on the playback!"

Yesterday, I saw part of a "Wonder Woman" TV show for the first time, and it just happened to feature a character who could take photographs that were paranormal. 

Paranormal photography is a gift that my husband, Greg, my brother, Nick, and I all have. Many of our photographs contain ectoplasm, orbs, and sometimes, when we're very lucky, a ghost!*

The Martha Washington Inn (The Martha) in Abingdon, Virginia is haunted...

Happy Halloween!

not only by fake ghosts (See the photo above.), but by real ones as well! Go see for yourself, if you dare!

* Be sure and check out my book, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind" which is full of spirit photographs that Nick, Greg, and I have taken. Please see and click on the widget above for more details on Amazon.

Spirit Gardeners?


I have something very unusual for you on this blog post! A relative, Lisa, just recently asked what I thought about a poinsettia that she had since she knew that Greg and I were very much into the paranormal.*

She showed me the flower while we were at her house.-

She said that this poinsettia was given to her in December of 2021 by her 102 year old great aunt. What's unusual about this flower is that it still has two leaves from the original bloom! She said that she'd never had one last that long.

Her aunt died a few months ago. Was this plant being tended to by her aunt who is now a spirit gardener?

Another strange incident involving flowers is that one day last year, Greg and I saw one beautiful flower growing by itself in our yard. It was a red petunia. He was surprised to see it since he didn't plant any like it the year before. Where had it come from? He said that his mother had loved petunias and the color red. Was this a sign from his mother that she was still around even though she had passed on a few years ago! 

Just because someone has passed on doesn't mean that they cease to exist. Our loved ones continue to care about us and are watching over us even after death.

*Greg and I are connected to the paranormal since we have the gift of taking spirit photographs. Also, besides this blog, I have written a book on the paranormal, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind," which contains over 100 paranormal photographs which I, Greg, my brother (Nick), and others have taken showing ectoplasm, orbs, shadow ghosts, as well as other paranormal phenomena.

Here is a photo which I took that shows a paranormal grid...

in the mirror above. It is similar to a few of the photographs in my book. The mirror was in Greg's boyhood home which was very haunted as I describe in the book. My childhood home was very haunted, as well. 

The book also has a picture of the famous June Tolliver House ghost which was taken by my brother when he was just a schoolboy.
