You know it has to be some sixth sense that kicks in when your hair stands up. Does this mean it’s a ghost, monster, or just danger? Perhaps it can mean all three, depending on the circumstance. Usually, fear creeps in and one feels the need to flee or protect the body.
If you analyze it, it really means there is an energy shift and you are perceiving it. It could be a throwback to those days when we needed to be on high alert for attacks from wild beasts, an instinctual behavior. However, I’m hedging my bets on the higher self giving fair warning.
We all show up on the planet to have a conscious physical experience. Once, eaten, it’s over. So, I imagine the higher self would want to keep us around for a bit. Therefore, it would steer us from danger, or turn us on to something we need to pay attention to.
So, when you feel that uneasy prickle, ask yourself, “what’s up with that?” You may discover an amazing answer… AND, it may NOT be a bad thing at all. There’s always the hope it’s a winning lotto ticket at your feet!

Many people worry about what ghosts will do to them. For the most part, nothing. The best they can do is surprise or scare. There are tales of people being pushed and scratched, but those are rare. In the scope of things, an AK47 will cause more damage.
The only worthy weapon in a spirit’s arsenal is fear. He or she will attempt to manipulate the living by playing on the fear response. What I tell people who are troubled by a haunting at home, is to stand up to it. Most of the time, all one has to do is acknowledge the spirit’s presence. Just asking it kindly to play nice goes a long way. Remember we are talking about a human being (unless you have a non-human entity… this is another topic. You’ll know this because it causes far more chaos than a ghost).
Your best bet is to get a grip. Know the ghost does not have the power portrayed in horror movies. Know you have the upper hand. It’s like having an invisible roommate. Set the boundaries and everyone will get along fine.

YOU TOO can join us at Miss Fanny’s Victorian Party House for a public investigation with Poughkeepsie Paranormal Investigators! Some of us from IndyPara will be on hand as well. Julia Drahos is opening up her haunted home, featured on Bio Channel’s My Ghost Story and SyFy’s Haunted Collector.
Brian Harnois formerly from Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International will be there to lecture and head up the haunt.
Reserve your tickets today! at www.missfannys.com.
I’m hoping to join in on Friday’s investigation. Perhaps Isaiah the pinching ghost will goose me again! This is an active haunting. It can be pretty intense, so buck up and be ready!
See you there!
You all knew it was coming with the sporadic postings. It’s been a ride to hell in a hand basket (what the hell is a hand basket?!) to keep up with a daily cartoon, creative director job and life in general. So, I’m cutting back to four days a week. This will afford more time to write and publish. Also, it will allow me to put more energy into the quality. I love to write off the cuff, but I would like a chance for refinement. So, here it goes!
The old axiom, less is more, finally slapped me upside the head. So, I hope you are willing to wait for superior comics. I want to put out quality more than quantity.
So, please enjoy yourselves and have a laugh or two.
Just think, when I cash in that winning lotto ticket, I’ll jump back in for a full 7 days again… or maybe only 5, so I can travel. I get tired of four walls and a computer.
