Last Paranormal Blog Post of 2014


I hope you're enjoying the holidays!

This is not only my last paranormal blog post of 2014, but it's also my last one until Saturday, February 7, 2015 since I have so many projects on which I'm now working.

As it stands now, I'm planning to post my "Spirit Photographs" blog posts about once a month and to have mini blog post updates between my regular posts whenever something interesting comes up.

As I said, I do have a lot of projects coming up that I'm planning to work on in 2015.  One of those is a new paranormal book I have in the works that is somewhat similar to my first paranormal book, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind," but with a new perspective.  I have a lot of new paranormal photographs that I've never before published and new paranormal experiences that I've never written about that I would like to share with the world.

At this time, I'm trying to decide whom and what I'd like to include in my latest book.  I have some ideas in my mind, but no firm commitments at this time.  If you or someone you know would like to be considered for inclusion in my book, please contact me at: .

Every week, either Greg or I are having spirits show up in the photographs we take (and just like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike!).  And, what makes it all so intriguing is that we never know when something paranormal is going to appear in our photos.

A case in point: Christmas Day, Greg and I were visiting relatives, when I spotted an old mirror and decided to take a picture of it to see if anything strange, like a paranormal grid, would show up.  Well, I didn't get a grid, but nearby, to the left of the mirror, I did manage to capture some ectoplasm.  Spirit photography is so unpredictable and fascinating!

Can you spot the ectoplasm in this photo?

May you have a blessed and happy new year!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday, February 7 (or sooner!), Becky

A Very Haunted House


Earlier this month, Greg and I visited the Lotz House in Franklin, Tennessee.  There are several reasons why we decided to visit this house when we did-

-First of all, it's full of history.  In fact, this year is the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of the Battle of Franklin, the bloodiest time of the Civil War, and this house was in the middle of it all.

-This was our first time visiting the house, and I wanted to see it when it is perhaps at its best, all dressed for Christmas, and it didn't disappoint.  The decorations were from that early time period, and cotton was even included in the floral arrangements.

-I wanted something really special and "Christmasey" for my before-Christmas blog post, and the Lotz house fit that bill perfectly.

Our one disappointment was that no picture-taking is allowed on the inside of the house, but we were allowed to take pictures on the outside.  However, it was almost dark when we took our photos, and we'd like to try it again some other time in the daylight.  (Although most suggest that you take spirit photos after dark, using the flash, it usually doesn't seem to matter for Greg and me.  We can usually do well almost anytime, with or without the flash.)  However, the pictures I took were so dark, I had to lighten them up a lot on an online web site, so the quality is not the best.

Thankfully, I did manage to capture a couple of things on my camera.  (We've yet to analyze Greg's photos.)

See if you can find an orb in this photo of the Lotz House.

Our tour guide and the person working in the gift shop were very helpful and knowledgeable, and they told us some interesting (as in scary!) things that they had personally witnessed there-strange sounds, ghostly sightings, and even a picture of the former owners suddenly flying off the wall!

This is a very haunted house, as "Travel Channel" featured the Lotz House on one of its shows a few years ago on "America's Most Terrifying."  In fact, the Lotz House is supposed to be the second most haunted house in America, according to our tour guide.  (He didn't know which one was first.  What do you think would be number one?  I guess different experts would have different opinions on that one.)

Anyway, I hope you have a blessed and very merry Christmas!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday, Becky

Paranormal Gift-Giving Idea


Earlier this week, I was talking to a personable man on the the phone who was helping me with a business matter when I mentioned to him that I had written a book on the paranormal.  Immediately, his voice changed, and he started telling me about seeing two family members who had passed on.  He said that ever since then he had been very interested in the paranormal.  He asked me the name of my book and where to get a copy.

Almost everyone I've talked with has had or knows someone who has had a personal, paranormal experience which quickly makes believers out of them.  So, there are a lot more people than you'd think that are really interested in the supernatural.

If you know someone who would like more information on the paranormal, might I give you a gift-giving idea for Christmas, or anytime, really, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind" by Becky Arnott.  This book, with the help of over 100 genuine spirit photographs, taken by the author, husband Greg, and others, has examples of orbs, ectoplasm, shadow ghosts, grids, etc. and even three apparitions!  (Capturing any apparition on camera is pretty rare.)

A Perfect Gift for Anyone Who Is Intrigued by the Paranormal

To get a copy of "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind" is easy.

You can:
Order online from:  (See the picture of my book [widget] at the top of this blog post.
Buy from local shops:
-June Tolliver House, Big Stone Gap, Virginia
-The Clapboard House, Wise, Virginia
-Atlantis, Johnson City, Tennessee
-The Old Curiosity Book Shop, Columbia, Tennessee

While you're at it, you might even want to get a copy for yourself.

Happy shopping!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next Saturday, Becky

We are all psychic in varying degrees.  Some people's psychic abilities are just more pronounced than others.  Although I have the ability to take paranormal photographs, I couldn't give anyone a psychic reading if my life depended on it.

Psychics who do readings have helped me throughout my life in many ways.  For instance, a gifted psychic was valuable when I wrote my book, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind."

I just finished talking with one of my favorite psychics on the phone, and she really helped me  a lot.  I felt that someone in the psychic community had hurt my feelings, had let me down.  I discussed the person with the psychic who helped me sort  through everything.

Psychics are much better than regular counselors because they know the hidden meaning of things.  They know what's in people's hearts and minds.  Of course, you need to get someone who is a genuine psychic.  You don't want a fake who makes up things just to get your money.

Some of the best ones, in my opinion, are the Heritage psychics, based at the Heritage Holistic Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia, although many of the psychics actually live in different states.  I've talked with most of them, but I have a couple I call more often, according to what I need to discuss.  For instance, the one I talked with tonight is great in describing and analyzing the people in your life which is with what I usually need the most help.

I also plan on using a psychic in the new paranormal book I'm working on now.

(Just be aware that no psychics are one hundred percent accurate.)
