If you have photos, post them somewhere we can view them. Yes, a grave yard is the perfect place to see orbs and apparitions in photos...
I live in a 108 year old home in the midwest, and I just got rid of several "sprits" hanging around my home for the past 10 years in a modern day
seance 6 months ago. I didn't see, hear, or feel them...I smelled them. One was chain-smoker and I would smell cigarette smoke...another smoked a
pipe becasue I smelled cherrywood...and the other smelled like mothballs. I'm a nonsmoker and it would bug me, so I'd yell at the smokers to go
away...the mothball was only smelled one time. My cat was the one who saw things...her eyes would stare at nothing and her head would move on
occasion as if she was following something. These weren't hauntings...these were previous occupants of my home. After the metaphysical consultant
sent these spirits "into the light", she told me that I really need to smudge my home with white sage...I smudged it a few days later. I forgot
about the sumudging until 09/01/08 when I witnessed my cat being petted by a source other than me. She was a bit frightened, but intrigued...she
looked up, around, and then sat down and stared at something to her right. I couldn't see it, feel it, hear it, or smell it, but I knew something
was there and immediately told it to leave the cat alone, and it did...right after the incident, my cat showed signs of contentment when she fell
asleep next to me. The next day, I smudged my home again with white sage and all has been good since that time. Additionally, I saw an apparition of
a Native American Indian Chief in my in bedroom when I moved into the house 10 years ago...I forgot about it until the metaphysical consultant
mentioned it...she saw him in full headdress...ironically, so did I the first time I saw him. The next month, I bought a drawing of an Indian Chief
in full headress and placed in my bedroom in order to be respectful and to honor the Chief.
I'm an "A Haunting" addict...and I've watched several of the stories a couple of times...and yes, I too believe some of those stories are
embellished a bit for good tv viewing. I don't belive all of the demonic possessions in the manner they're portrayed. Evil spirits will make you
become depressed, and they will play tricks on you, like turning the dining room chairs upsidedown on the table...they don't necessarily make you do
evil things. If you don't give these evil spirits your energy, they can't bother you, nor can they harm, hurt, or kill you, however, some evil
spirits will just drive a person nuts because they can't do anything else...and that's when it may be time to move out of the house. I've lived
with beings not of the this planet for 10 years and never experienced any negativity...of course I was probably a host and they were feeding off of my
energy to carry forward, however, no hauntings here...just previous occupants who weren't ready to leave my house.
Old homes (especially those over 100 years or more) have a greater risk for carrying paranormal activity because people 100 years ago or more took
pride in thier homes...the home was all they had to be proud of...they stayed in their homes untul they passed away. People 100 years ago or more
became severly attached to 'things' since ownership of anything, regardless of a home or a simple chest of drawers, was a sign of significance.
Modern day people in our time are more attached to people than they are things, however, something that is sentimental, such as a wedding ring, may be
easy for people to become attached to while alive, which may carry over after death...in most cases, people who have passed will be less likely to
hang around thier home than people 100 years ago or so. Actor and comedian Redd Foxx who passed away in the mid 90's has been thought to hang around
his home...people have expereinced the paranormal and related it to him...he was raised in the early 1900's.
