You’ve sensed it as you enter these zones. They seem to be charged with more energy and light. You feel it as you approach, and it gets stronger as you enter the location. The atmosphere seems different and you notice a subtle change in the air. The colors, smells, and sounds are different, but why?
How does a place earn the reputation of the ‘most haunted’ anyway? Well, Sedona, Arizona; New Orleans, Louisiana; Lily Dale, New York; and a few others rank high on that list for a reason. Let’s see why…
Haunted Places in the World
its history as a Native American confluence spot for diverse tribes, Sedona is
an energy vortex of limitless power, especially for the Hopi tribe. This
terrain holds potent potential for meditators, visionaries, and psychics who
experience spiritual connections of unprecedented vividness here. Many people report
talking to the guardians of Mother Earth directly while they visit!
It seems to
be an inter-galactic meeting point where extra-terrestrial star people touch
down and mix with indigenous populations. It’s considered an interdimensional
portal that catapults those who enter here into higher consciousness. It
continues to be a pilgrimage destination for those who want to help usher in
the New Age of spiritual perfection.
somewhat different way, the old quarter of New Orleans is recognized as one of
the most haunted in the world. Battered by hurricanes, violence, and pandemics
since its founding in 1718, New Orleans hosts a population accustomed to
walking side by side with death and rebirth and of making a celebration out of
known as the French Quarter, with its rich history of cultural mixing,
spiritual syncretism, voodoo, musical innovation, and an “anything goes”
attitude, helps bring about a world view familiar with ghost sightings,
memories of past lives, and psychic experiences of all kinds. These are woven
into the food, music, art, and spirituality of those who reside and visit here.
encounters are a daily experience behind the shutters and lacey balconies. Any kind
of spiritual experience can be quickly accessed within a few square blocks.
It’s been said that “No one dies in Lily Dale.” Its reputation has been earned by maintaining a decades-old community of Psychic Mediums who make their continual connection with the spirit world a daily part of their lives and the lives of those who visit their retreats.
Located in New York state, it was formed in the year 1879. Lily Dale is a community devoted to spiritualism, prayer, meditation, healing, and connection with Spirit. It welcomes visitors from all over the world to retreats that are offered year-round.
one of the five “coolest small towns to visit” by Budget Travel, Astoria’s
total population is slightly less than 10,000. As the oldest port in the
Pacific Northwest, it’s located at the extreme Northern point of the Oregon
Coast. Astoria has everything. Thriving arts and spiritual communities, a
temperate marine climate, and a breath-taking view of the Columbia River
meeting the Pacific Ocean.
Once nicknamed the “graveyard of the Pacific” due to its treacherous tidal water, it brought the demise of many seasoned fishermen before the advent of modern nautical devices. This has contributed to its haunted reputation.
But, a most
interesting feature about Astoria is a huge and ornate Victorian Museum House
named after Capt. Flavel, one of its earliest settlers. It receives hundreds of
visitors for tours, especially during the summer months.
inside, through the dim and luxurious entrance, you notice right away the
shutters are drawn, casting an eerie glow on the antique mahogany interior and
a sultry and mysterious atmosphere prevails.
“What a Perfect Place for a Séance…”
years after the highly eccentric Flavel family moved out of what’s called the
Flavel House Museum, the house sat vacant. But it was a veritable hub for
visitors, all of the paranormal variety!
heard by neighbors late into the evening, but on checking it out, nothing and
no one was found inside. No one, that is, except on one occasion just a day shy
of Halloween night.
It seems an adventurous young lady was looking for the perfect place to have a costume party with her friends. She entered the house through a window that was cracked open and gasped in surprise as a woman in a long, red, velvet bustle dress met and beckoned her to the sitting room. The woman wordlessly watched her, a faint, mysterious smile on her face, and began to pour the girl a cup of freshly made tea.
woman placed some cookies alongside the cup, the girl noticed the translucent
appearance of the woman’s hand as it passed her the elegant china saucer. An
antique amethyst ring highlighted her ghostly white skin. It seemed to radiate
a freaky, iridescent essence.
The girl screamed, bounded from her chair, and bolted for the front door, tearing the doorframe and knocking over a brass spittoon in the entranceway.
home, pale, shaken, and gasping for breath, never to return to the house. This,
and other accounts earned the Flavel Mansion the title of “Most haunted house
But, What About
Of course, not all ghosts are so hospitable. The pub known as The Ten Bells in East London vibrates with history and has been a social center for residents of the eclectic and historic neighborhood of Spitalfields for centuries.
Though important to London community life since the mid-1700s, it has just one infamous and unfortunate association. It was frequented by the serial killer known as Jack the Ripper and several of his victims!
the pub have reported that an ephemeral female ghost thought to be Mary
Chapman, a woman abducted by the Ripper, roams the pub at night.
Footsteps, laughter, and poltergeist activity have been witnessed by visitors on many evenings. A man in formal Victorian dress has been sighted and is thought to be Jack the Ripper himself!
While a delightful resting spot in the daytime,
a late-night visit could cause “vapors” in the faint of heart.
Zoshigaya Cemetery in Tokyo is a place that people are drawn to despite its spooky heritage. Shadowy voices are heard and faces and hands appear from the trees!
suicides have been recorded on the grounds and these deceased souls wander
aimlessly throughout the premises at night. It’s a place of outstanding beauty and
elegant design and is considered one of the most stunningly haunted sites in
if you’re brave enough.
Where the Veil
Essentially, the Veil is the thinnest wherever spirit connections happen for you! It’s as close as your own backyard, neighborhood park, spiritual shrine, or favorite vacation destination.
Who knows all the reasons we’re drawn to a place time after time? Meetings with friends, lovers, and ancestors definitely set the tone at the locations that we cherish. Ghostly memories at these points in time and space, live and grow each time we visit.
Trained Mediums bring sacred healing communications to those who want to communicate across the Veil. Spiritual Mediums are conduits between the living and the dead. At the basis of Mediumship is the knowledge and belief that life continues beyond the transition we call death.
Mediums prove through their evidential readings that those who have crossed
over remain actively connected to us and want to engage in our lives. While
letting Spirit lead the encounter, they connect us with a phone call from the
spirit world itself.
Death is not the end of your strong bonds with your loved ones. A psychic medium can connect you to those who have crossed over. During a psychic medium reading, you can share messages, get closure, and so much more.
