WordPress has kindly informed me this blog is beyond dusty and extremely moldy as I haven’t posted anything for a little over 2 years. Kinda sad, but life got in the way and I had a brief writing crisis of faith where everything I wrote felt like it wasn’t any good.
But the muse bit me recently and bit hard and I would like to introduce to you, gentle reader, to a new series to this blog called Spirit of Place.
As many of you know, I have been reading runes and tarot cards for well over 20 years and I also connect with spirits and provide readings for people who want to learn about and get to know their spirit guides. I guess my official title would be Medium. I call them spirits and not dead people because I find that to be disrespectful.
The idea of Spirit of Place came to me when my sister, Rachel, and I were in Italy. We had just visited a nice haunted castle in a cute little Italian town and were enjoying some afternoon libations near a water fountain in a small park. Rachel also has the same gifts as me and told me there was a spirit near the water fountain who wanted to talk to us.
I convinced the spirit that the language barrier wasn’t a problem and were introduced to a very dapper spirit named Fritz. Fritz told us about his family, his life and why he chose the water fountain and the park. We had a pleasant chat with Fritz and when we were done, we poured out a little of our afternoon libations and thanked Fritz for his stories. He thanks us for listening and went back to the fountain.
And that is what I am going to do this with blog series. I will visit local business, open spaces, parks, etc. and talk to the “Fritzs” inhabiting the spaces and ask them to tell me their stories. I will also ask how others can take advantage of the “spirit” of these places for your own benefit. Also, if I go to a place and the spirits don’t feel like talking, I won’t push. I may come back a few times until they do, but if they really don’t want to talk, I won’t force them.
Please also note: this is not a “ghost hunting” blog. I’m not going to whip out EMF Meters or digital recorders and demand the spirits talk to me. I find that recent trend to be a disrespectful and I’m not here to get readings.
I hope you enjoy this “spirited” ride and if you have any places you want to recommend or are curious about, let me know.
Also, if you do visit the places I write about, make sure to leave an offering for the spirits residing there.
