"A Haunted Mirror!"


A few days ago, I was straightening up one of our storage buildings, when I came across an old family heirloom, a mirror, which had belonged to my grandparents. That mirror wasn't just an ordinary mirror since whenever Greg or I took a picture of it, strange white lines showed up in it. We finally decided that the mirror was haunted!

I wondered if anything strange would again show up in this mirror if Greg and I took more pictures of it since it had been years since we had last photographed it.

So, a couple of days ago, we got out our cameras, and we took pictures of the mirror which we had temporarily placed in our hallway to photograph. Here are the results-

This is the photograph Greg took of the mirror.

I took this photo of the mirror.

There is no doubt that this mirror is still haunted!

Notice the similarities and the differences of the two photographs. Greg's is more at an angle and mine is more straight on. (Taking a picture of a mirror at an angle cuts down on having the flash show up in your picture.) Both mirrors have dark, as well as white lines..

Lines like these that show up in a photographed mirror make what is known as a paranormal grid. We learned that term from a talented psychic, the late Elaine Watson when we showed her several photographs that we had taken of mirrors with lines. I'm so glad that she told us what they were since we couldn't find any information about them on our own. 

It's generally thought that it's best to take pictures of the paranormal with a flash, but Greg and I get paranormal pictures with no flash unless we are taking pictures of mirrors.

I recently read that if you have a haunted mirror, you should never destroy it because harm can come to you if you do. There are ways to safely protect yourself if you have a haunted mirror. There is a website that gives you options on how to deal with this concern. It is-

Just recently, I noticed some websites actually selling haunted mirrors. Now, there's an idea!

If you are interested in seeing more photographs of grids, as well as other paranormal phenomena, check out my Kindle book on Amazon, "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind" by Becky Arnott. It contains over 100 photos that my brother, Nick, and my husband, Greg, and I have taken throughout most of our lives of the haunted houses that we have lived in, as well as other haunted places here in the United States and abroad.

"Spirits Are Real!"


After the passing of our beloved cat, Kallie, a few months ago, I'm more convinced than ever that spirits are real, that spirits of people and pets do survive.

Here is our memorial for Kallie which is in our flower garden.

As I mentioned in my last few blog posts, Kallie has been sending us signs that she is still with us. There is not quite as much evidence now that Kallie is around us as there was at first, but at times, she still makes herself known.

Sometimes, especially at night, our cat, Mitzi, a sibling of Kallie's, will stare at the floor as if she is watching something. Would that something be Kallie's spirit?

I, for the past few weeks, have heard faint meows different places at different times in our house. These meows weren't from Mitzi or our outdoor cat, Kit-Cat, since they were both sound asleep when I heard the meows.

Just a couple of days ago, I was carrying some cat food up the steps, when I heard a little meow on the stairway. (As I mentioned in a previous blog post, a stairway can be a place where spirits enter our earthly plane from the spirit world.)

Of course, I'm no stranger to the paranormal since, around the age of four, when I was walking from one room to another at night, balancing a thing on my head, and carrying an object in each hand, I saw something that terrified me so much that I called out to Mama for help.

When she ran to console me, I told her that I saw something scary. I thought I had seen a hand.

Years later, I decided that what I had seen was not of this world.

Eventually, I discovered that I had a talent of taking pictures of spirits, and that my husband, Greg, also possessed the same talent! After all, though, we are soulmates. Paranormal photography runs in my birth family, as well.

In fact, since there were so many paranormal photographs that we had taken, I decided to write a book based on them. There are over 100 paranormal photographs with explanations for each of them in my book.

The title of my book is "Photographic Encounters of the Spirit Kind" which is a Kindle book on Amazon. For more information, just click on the widget above.

I am, as you might imagine, really curious about spirits, other planes of existence, so I read and research a lot.

Recently, I decided to research online about people who had lost their pets to see what their experiences had been like. I discovered that they had had similar experiences to Greg's and mine, like seeing their spirit pets out of the corners of their eyes, etc. One woman even showed a picture of her ghost pet's paw touching a new kitten that the woman had! Many people continued to have these types of incidents for months or even longer after they had lost their pets.

I'm currently reading a fascinating book, "The Dream," written by prolific author David Icke. In the book, he discusses life on Earth, as well as the astral world. It's mind boggling, to say the least! 

I'll have even more to write about next month. Please stay tuned!

"Eerie, Strange, Paranormal..."


I have some things to share with you today that are eerie, strange, paranormal. Some of these are weird things that have happened to others, and some are personal, that Greg and I have recently experienced.

"Many paranormal enthusiasts believe staircases are spiritual vortexes, attracting ascending (and descending!) spirits. At the Biltmore (estate in Asheville, North Carolina), visitor accounts of odd occurrences on the stairs soar in firsthand accounts detailed in online reports and comments."-

"Most of the visitors had reported seeing spirits going up or down the stairs. Sounds of footsteps had also been heard on multiple occasions. Not to be outdone, there have been reports of strange smells, cold spots, and eerie feelings when visitors would go up or down the stairs."-

Our Cat Kallie on Our Stairway, Not Long Before Her Passing

In my two previous blog posts (on 1/21/24 and 2/20/24), I wrote about losing our beloved cat, Kallie, to an illness, and about the paranormal things that manifested as a result of her passing.

Well, these paranormal events are continuing to happen. 

During the past few weeks since my last "Spirit Photographs" blog post, here are some strange things that Greg and I have encountered- (We are convinced that they are manifesting because Kallie is trying to communicate with us.)

~Here is a photograph I took of a tree right outside our dining room window when it was sleeting a few weeks ago-

In the photo above, notice what appears to be white ectoplasm near the top of the tree and the violet ectoplasm at the bottom of the tree. (Is this ectoplasm related to Kallie?)

~A couple of weeks later, Greg and I were upstairs, and just as we were leaving one room and entering the cat room, I heard a distinctive meow that sounded exactly like Kallie. Our cat, Mitzi, was downstairs, so we know it wasn't her. Besides, cats have distinctive meows, just like people have distinctive voices.

~Then, just a few nights ago, I was upstairs again, and Greg came up and told me that he had heard a loud noise in the kitchen, like a pan dropping. He said that he and Mitzi had run into the kitchen, but he saw nothing. He said that Mitzi went over near the pet drinking fountain, and was looking around. It's very possible that it was Kallie that had made that noise because she seemed to really love the new fountain that we had gotten for the cats a few weeks before she passed away. Mitzi must have sensed Kallie's presence, or maybe even saw her there. (Many animals are very psychic. They can often see and hear things in the spirit world that we can't.)

~One night, I was working on the computer in our study, when I began to hear a loud clinking noise that sounded like it came from the kitchen. It was the loud distinctive sound of Kallie's claw, hitting her water dish, to make the water move, as she had done many times before.

~One day, I was in the kitchen, when I heard a noise in the nearby laundry room, and I noticed a cardboard cat food box had fallen over by itself.

There will, no doubt, be more manifestations here at our house in the future, but we don't mind. It's so reassuring that Kallie is letting us know that she's still with us, at least part of the time, since she was such an important part of our lives.

According to our psychic, a new cat is supposed to be coming to our house in the spring, which begins in just two days. Please stay tuned!

Happy spring!

"Our Beloved Spirit Cat" (Part 2)


This blog post* is part 2, a continuation of last month's post that I wrote on 1/21/24.**

As I said in my previous post, Greg, our cat, Mitzi, and I all miss our cat, Kallie. (We also have an outdoor cat, Kit-Cat, but there was very little interaction between our indoor cats and our outdoor one. Also, Kallie and Mitzi were littermates.)

Here's a picture of Mitzi on the loveseat in our study where Kallie often enjoyed lying. Mitzi hardly ever lay on it until Kallie passed away.

Beside Mitzi is a toy that Kallie loved.

During a psychic reading, I asked Crystal if Kallie was coming back to us as another cat, but to my great disappointment, she said that she was not, that she'll see us when we pass over, that she'll be the first one to greet us there. For now, she just wants to rest from the illness that took its toll on her.

Instead, Kallie told us about another cat that was coming to us in the spring. It will be a little young female who looks younger than she is. She is nice, sweet, and loving. She'll walk right up to our house.

Kallie also told us about another cat, an older male (around six to eight years old) who is stoic, dignified, and sweet. She said that he was at our local pet shop.

Greg and I decided that the younger female cat that's coming to us in the spring would be better for us than the male cat, but we decided to go by the pet shop to see if there was a cat there that she had described, and there was!

There were only about six cats at the shop, and there was an eight-year-old male cat that Kallie had told us about. We were stunned! Amazing reading!

Crystal said that Kallie was smart, alert, and cool., and that she knows what she wants. Kallie said that she wanted to give another cat a chance to live in a home where there was love and kindness.

Kallie was not just a cat; she was more like a human, the nicest person you would ever meet. She was very spiritual, the embodiment of unconditional love. If people were all like Kallie, what a wonderful world this would be!

She was mature. (She was more like Mitzi's mother than her sibling.) She was also graceful, beautiful, and photogenic. She and Mitzi are in both of my books. Kit-Cat is in my second book. Kallie and Mitzi are also on a stock photo site for which I am a contributor. For more information, please check out my website,

We buried Kallie in one of our garden areas which is near our cabin. We'll put a custom-designed stone with a heart on her grave in the spring.

Notice Kallie's ectoplasm at the top of the bush. Her grave is behind the bush.

A few days ago, after my birthday celebration, I went upstairs to put away a few things, and as I was walking through our cat room, I heard a familiar clicking sound that seemed to move around the room. I called out to Greg who was downstairs, and asked him to come up quickly to see what he thought of the sound. Thankfully, he got to hear it, too. We finally decided that it was like the sound that Kallie would make when she was hitting her paws against her water dish before drinking. She liked to watch the water move in the dish.

I think it was Kallie's way of letting us know that she was still around, and that she just wanted to wish me a happy birthday!

We were so lucky for the time that we had with Kallie, who was more like our child than our pet (So are Mitzi and Kit-Cat!), and we look forward to seeing her in the future.

We're also looking forward to spring this year, for more reasons than one!

"Our Beloved Spirit Cat" (Part 1)


Two weeks ago, we lost our beloved cat, Kallie, to an illness. She meant so much to Greg and me. We had her for almost 17 years, and for Greg, Mitzi (our other indoor cat), and me, our loss has been great.

A few days ago, I contacted a wonderful psychic, Crystal (not her real name), who helped Greg and me overcome much of our pain. Crystal is very accurate, and she is compassionate, as well.

When I mentioned that Kallie had passed away, she expressed her sympathy and concern, but right away, she said that Kallie was happy, healthy, and frisky, and that her tail was in the air. She looks like she's one to two years old. She said that Kallie really loves us, that she hangs out here, and she wants to be with us. She feels very grateful. She got to be herself in our happy home. She loved the way our house felt; it's a lot better than when we first moved in. She didn't like the old energy. (Greg and I have really worked on our house. We have made it our own.)

 She said that Kallie really loved our fireplace.

Crystal emphasized that Kallie was very energy sensitive. I knew that she was sensitive since Greg and I are, too. We are psychic in our own ways. We couldn't give a psychic reading if we had to, but our psychic abilities manifest in other ways.

For instance, When Crystal said that Kallie was happy, with her tail in the air, that was no surprise to Greg, since a couple of days after Kallie had passed on, he actually saw the back of Kallie's tail in the air as she went around the corner of our kitchen island. 

Not only that, but during the next few days, we heard Kallie meow three different times, and I heard Kallie's paws (because of her toenails) hitting the wooden floor upstairs.

We both had several dreams about Kallie. I saw her as a kitten, and I hugged her. Greg said he had dreamed that he had seen Kallie, Mitzi, and our outdoor cat, Kit-Cat, on the deck together. (Which they never were in real life.) In another dream, Greg said that Kallie had her paw on his shoulder, probably because he had tried to help Kallie heal with reiki. (Crystal said that the reiki had made Kallie feel better, for which she was really grateful. Crystal said that Greg was a natural healer, that he didn't need any formal training since he wasn't doing it professionally.)

A couple of days after Kallie had passed, I was shopping in a store, feeling sad, and as I walked down an aisle, I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with a large heart on it. The heart was outlined in a fake leopard spots design. (A leopard is a big cat, of course.) About a minute later, I saw a magazine that was about cats. I believe I saw these things because of Kallie's recent death. 

(The same thing happened to me after Mama had passed away. For a few days, I'd see things when I was out, that pertained to Mama. There were just too many things to make them merely coincidences. I believe it was Mama communicating with me from beyond. And, I also believe it was the same thing with Kallie.)

I have much more to tell about our beloved spirit cat in next month's February blog post, which will include two intriguing photographs.

Please stay tuned for "Our Beloved Spirit Cat" (Part 2).
