Spooky Haunted Hotel Experiences

Sep 24, 2020 | Views: 4,396

The US has plenty of haunted places and here’s a few…famous hotels have, over time, inspired not only ghosts but also movie directors, and were featured in movies and books.

Here is a list of the most haunted hotels in the US followed by some spooky ghost encounters from the readers of the USA Today.

 

1. The Provincial Hotel, New Orleans

Any time a hospital is converted into a hotel, there may be problems. That is exactly the case with this hotel. It used to be a Confederate hospital during the Civil War, and many of the soldiers that died inside its walls have never left.

One particular solider has a thing for country music! Whenever the radio is turned to classical, the ghost quickly changes it to a country station. And if the guest insists on changing the station back, he’s been known to materialize and frighten them away from the radio.

A woman who was staying at the hotel to watch the St. Charles Avenue Mardi Gras Parades returned to her room from the late night festivities. She told a staff member that something unseen grabbed her hand, pulled her from the bed and quickly dragged her across the room. She felt like it was trying to pull her inside the wall. People say they have walked into its rooms and saw wounded soldiers writhing in pain and moaning, then disappearing when the lights are turned on. It is said that blood stains appear and disappear on bedding and floors. Soft moans are heard throughout the building. A security guard entered an elevator and, when its doors opened, saw a hospital room filled with wounded soldiers and nurses tending them…

 

 

2. Myrtles Plantation, St Francisville, Louisiana

This is known as “One of America’s most haunted.” The plantation is supposedly home to at least 12 ghosts. Rumors say it was built atop an ancient Indian burial ground. Possibly the most well known of the Myrtles supposed ghosts, Chloe, was reportedly a slave owned by Clark and Sara Woodruff.

According to one story, Clark Woodruff had pressured or forced Chloe into being his mistress. Other versions of the legend have Chloe listening in at keyholes to learn more of Clark Woodruff’s business dealings or for other purposes. After being caught, one of her ears was cut off, and she wore a green turban to hide it. Chloe supposedly baked a birthday cake containing extract of boiled oleander leaves, which are extremely poisonous.

The various legends diverge as to why she did this. A house maid who was getting the favor of the mistress was a suspect with some saying she was getting revenge on the Woodruffsand some saying she was attempting to redeem her position by curing the family of the poisoning. According to the legends, her plan backfired. Only Sara and her two daughters ate cake, and all died from the poison. Chloe was then supposedly hanged by the other slaves, and thrown into the Mississippi River, either as punishment or to escape punishment by Clark Woodruff for harboring her.

A mirror located in the house supposedly holds the spirits of Sara Woodruff and her two children. According to custom, mirrors are covered after a death, but legend says that after the poisoning of the Woodruffs, this particular mirror was overlooked. The uncovered mirror reportedly trapped the spirits of Sara and her children, who are occasionally seen or leave handprints in the mirror. Regardless of the factual accuracy of the Chloe story, some believe a woman wearing a green turban haunts the plantation.

 

 

3. Hotel del Coronado, San Diego

Ghostly tales abound about this hotel. The most well-known legend is that of Kate Morgan, who checked into the hotel in 1892 to meet her estranged husband. He never showed up, and days later she was found dead on the beach from a gunshot wound. Some believe her spirit still haunts the hotel, and there have been numerous reports of noises, odd breezes and sightings of ghosts.

When it opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world and the first to use electrical lighting. It has hosted presidents, royalty, and celebrities throughout the years. When President Ford visited, one of his Secret Service agents complained of odd noises. The hotel has been featured in numerous movies and books.

4. Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado

If you are a Stephen King fan, request room 217. That’s where he got the inspiration and wrote half of “The Shining.” Room 418 gets the most reports of haunting activity, apparently from children’s spirits.

In fact, the entire fourth floor (formerly the servants quarters) is quite active. Often, the sound of children playing can be heard, even when no children are present. Cleaning crews report having heard many strange noises from the room, as well as seeing impressions on the bed when the room was empty. When guests stay in the room, they often report that they hear children playing in the hallway at night. One couple reportedly checked out of the hotel very early in the morning, complaining that the children in the hallway kept them up all night. However, there were no children booked in the hotel at the time.

Another ghost is in room 407, which is said to sometimes be occupied by Lord Dunraven, who owned the land prior to F.O. Stanley. Reportedly, he likes to stand in the corner of the room near the bathroom door. The Stanley Hotel’s original owners, F.O. and Flora Stanley, are said to haunt the hotel as well. Mr Stanley plays the piano in the music room, and frequents the billiards room and the lobby.

5. Le Pavilion, New Orleans

This haunted hotel in downtown New Orleans hired paranormal investigators, who identified four separate ghosts in the hotel. A teenage girl named Ada (or Ava) is said to have been spotted, looking lost and confused. The girl was reportedly set to board a ship when she was struck by a carriage and killed. She is believed to have lived during the 1840s. Sometimes guests see her ghostly spirit manifest in her old room on the third floor, asking for a ride to the docks.

An aristocratic couple has also been seen strolling the grounds. They appear to be from the 1920s. His former room on the fourth floor often smells like the cigars he smoked, even when nobody has been inside, and the girl’s former room on the third floor often smells like her rose perfume. A young man, also appearing to be from the 1920s, has been reported playing pranks on the hotel cleaning staff. He wears bell bottoms and walks shoeless through the halls; he likes to rip the sheets off the bed and move things around people’s rooms. The four haunting ghosts have been the subject of over 100 catalogued sightings and incidents.

 

 

6. Heathman Hotel, Portland, Oregon

Legend has it that not long after the hotel opened in 1927, a woman jumped out of the window of her 703 room. Now, that woman is haunting all of the rooms that she passed on her way down to the pavement.

Guests staying in any room that ends in an “03” report hearing noises, objects moving on their own, cold spots, and in the case of room 703, a ghostly face peering out of the corner of the room. A guest in room 703 said he could hear heavy breathing while he was in bed and felt the sheets wrap around him so tightly that he couldn’t move. He panicked and tried to get out of bed, but was trapped by the bedclothes. The breathing grew louder and came nearer.

Finally, the guest managed to escape from the sheets. He turned on the light and saw both of his heavy suitcases fly across the room toward him. A dark shadow of a man fled into the closet. The guest thought someone broke into his room. Security arrived and investigated the closet. No one was there.

 

 

7. The Carolina Inn, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The resident ghost is focused on one particular guest room. Dr. William P. Jacocks was a physician for the International Health Division of the Rockefeller Foundation. The doctor retired and lived at the Inn from 1948 until 1965, which was the year he died.

The doctor was a kind, gentle man with a fun loving sense of humor. That is why his ghost seems to enjoy teasing guests who occupy his third floor room. Guests who stay in the doctor’s room sometimes find themselves locked out of their accommodations. A couple returned to the room and found that their electronic keys wouldn’t work. The hotel maintenance workers were unable to unlock the door. The workers had to climb a ladder and crawl through the window. There was one instance when the door to the room had to be taken off its hinges because it could not be unlocked.

In 2002, a team of professional ghost hunters was brought in to investigate these events. The ghost hunters set up supersensitive equipment and monitored three guest rooms for four hours. The paranormal phenomena researchers set up ultra sensitive microphones, digital cameras, infrared video cameras and electromagnetic sensors. Over the four hour investigation, the sounds of footsteps were captured in an empty room. An orb-like object was captured moving through the air. Sounds of a piano playing were heard when there were no pianos nearby. Some softly spoken words were also heard.

Many people believe there are at least twenty ghosts residing in the haunted hotel.

8. Sagamore Hotel, Bolton Landing, New York

This hotel is home to several spirits, including a little boy on the golf course, a couple in the dining room and a mysterious lady in white. Back in the 1950s there was a little boy who worked on the golf course collecting golf balls. The nearby golf shop gave him money for every ball he collected. One day the boy was running after a ball that landed on the road, when he got hit by a car and was killed. His ghost now haunts the golf course and plays pranks on golfers. He has even been known to steal guests’ golf balls and can be heard laughing loudly while they search for them. Then, when they finally give up searching, he throws the balls to them from behind a tree.

A ghostly couple haunts the hotel restaurant. They descend from the 2nd floor and take a seat in the restaurant’s reception room before vanishing. The staff says this couple was among the first guests of the hotel in the 1880s. The dining area was visited by an apparition of a tall woman with flowing sandy blond hair wearing white evening attire. The woman mumbled something to the cook and when he turned to look at her, she walked toward him and then passed straight through him and disappeared. The cook quit abruptly and never returned.

One night, a hotel employee stepped into an empty elevator and pressed the elevator button. Her elbow bumped into something invisible. Suddenly a fat man materialized right behind her. He had a mustache and was dressed in a fine 3-piece brown suit. Just then, the elevator stopped and the doors opened. The fat man brushed past the startled employee, took three steps out of the elevator and abruptly vanished.

 

 

9. Crescent Hotel, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Room 218 is the spot where Michael, an Irish stonemason, landed when he fell from the hotel’s roof during construction. His ghost is said to bang on the walls and turn the lights and television on and off. Rooms 202 and 424 are also said to be haunted.

Outside of the Recreation Room, the ghost of Dr. Norman Baker often appears, looking a bit confused. He ran a controversial hospital and health resort in the building during the 1930s.

A nurse, dressed in a white uniform, has been seen on the third floor. A woman in Room 419 introduces herself as a cancer patient to guests and housekeepers then vanishes.

 

 

10. Ramada Plaza Hotel, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

This hotel was built in 1923 in an interesting spot: the underground tunnels used by Chicago gangsters to make their escapes ended in the hotel’s basement. The hotel’s numerous unexplained phenomenon have been well-documented by the staff.

In 2001, a guest and several housekeepers heard a man screaming on the seventh floor. A maintenance employee named Bill rushed to Room 717, where he heard, “Help me!” and saw the door moving outward, as if it was being kicked, hard, from the inside. The front desk told Bill no one was supposed to be in the room; the female guest had checked out hours before. Suddenly, all was quiet. Inside, Bill found an empty room. There were no marks on the door, as he expected from the banging.

In the ballroom, the chandelier inexplicably shakes and sways. One employee who heard a noise late one night saw a couple dancing. Glasses in the hotel bar fall and shatter, lights turn on and off, unassisted. Green orbs and vaporous clouds have been known to drift through the ballroom and banquet facilities, and televisions have the irritating habit of turning on by themselves.

The staff’s code name for the ghosts who are responsible for the strange happenings at the hotel is “Walter,” after the original owner of the hotel, businessman and philanthropist Walter Schroeder. Some of the more famous figures of the 20th-century were the guests of this hotel, including John F. Kennedy and Eleanor Roosevelt.

11. Queen Mary Hotel, Long Beach, California

This former cruise ship turned hotel celebrates its haunted past with special events, tours, and an “experience” that recreates some of the scarier moments in its history. When in service, the ship was involved in one tragedy (when it crashed into another boat and killed people on that boat). Oddly enough, it has experienced more tragedies since being permanently docked in Long Beach.

Most of the hauntings take place at the pool. A young girl who drowned in the second class pool now haunts the first class pool. She’s accompanied by another woman who was murdered in the first class women’s changing room. Together, they walk around the pool, leaving wet footprints on the deck and making splashing noises… even when the pool is empty. Some guests have even seen the ghosts of the women wearing bathing suits according to the fashion of the time in which they died.

USA Today readers’ stories

 

Greg Wroblewski, Consultant, McMinnville:

He was asleep at a hotel in Dayton, Ohio, in 1999 or early 2000 when he “felt someone or something” walk across the end of the bed. “It was so real it brought me to a full sitting position with my heart pounding; no booze, no drugs, not having a dream. When he told the hotel’s meeting coordinator the next morning about his experience, he found out that the hotel was haunted, and among the rooms the spirits frequented was his room.

 

Sheena Sales, Consultant, Chicago:

Sales was setting up a trade show on the 14th floor of a Dallas hotel in June 2008 when a hotel employee told her the hotel was haunted. A prospective bride killed herself after the groom didn’t show for their wedding at the hotel’s 19th-floor ballroom. The bride’s ghost haunts rooms on that floor. Sales mentioned the story to a friend staying on the 19th floor, and the friend immediately packed her bags and moved into Sales’ eighth-floor room. They shared a king-size bed and were awakened one night when it began shaking. “But it wasn’t the whole bed that was shaking,” she says. “It felt as if someone put one hand between us and the other on the side of me, and was putting pressure on the bed”.

 

Allen Irons, Senior Vice President of Sales, Coppell, Texas:

Castle Liebenstein next to the Rhine River near Kamp-Bornhofen, Germany, is haunted, Irons says. The hotel’s website says all rooms have a view of the Rhine River and a “castle ghost.” He was told the ghost was known to throw items, so he decided to play a trick on his wife. He pretended to be asleep in bed and flipped a coin across the room. “She jumped and then figured it was me, and we had a good chuckle,” Irons says. “The coin landed on the opposite side of the room and rolled to the far corner of the floor.” The next morning, the coin was between the couple on the middle of the bed’s headboard. “Neither she nor I put it there,” he says.

 

Gene Jannotti, Consultant, Garwood, N.J.:

At a B&B in Narragansett, R.I., about 10 years ago, he and three others were told by the owners that a photograph on display revealed a ghost. Later, the four had a hard time opening a room door. The next day he noticed a cell phone message. “The message was a recording of the four of us outside the door trying to get in,” he says. “We were completely baffled as how this could happen and blamed it on the ghost”.

 

Bill Evans, Commercial Program Manager, Fayetteville:

Bill had “a paranormal encounter” in 2005 at a hotel in Brighton, England. Every time he went into the bathroom, a yellow toy duck in the bathtub was in a different position. He says he later heard a crashing noise, and an ironing board fell out of a closet. He awakened in the middle of the night and saw “a black, shadowy figure of a child at the foot of the bed. It did not say anything, and then it was gone after a few seconds. When he was packing before checking out, he put a soap dish in the middle of a king-size bed, and it “went flying across the room”.

 

Deanne Sullivan, Consultant, Stockton, Calif:

Sullivan says she stayed at a hotel in Santa Barbara for much of 2000. One day that summer, she had her room’s television tuned to NBC’s Today show and went into the bathroom to get ready for work. The TV volume got very loud, and she ran out of the bathroom to turn it down. “As I left the bathroom, the huge ceiling light fixture fell onto the tile floor where I had just been standing and smashed,” she says. She later stopped at the front desk and joked that Today show host Matt Lauer had saved her, because the light fixture would have hit her if she hadn’t left the bathroom. She says the clerk told her a ghost was in the room she was in.

 

Leona Davis, Accounts Manager, Peachtree City:

Davis says she “was probably as skeptical as anyone could be before her experience in a hotel in Marrakech, Morocco. After waking at 7 a.m., she walked into a hallway toward a bathroom, and “a man in traditional clothing was standing before me motionless.” She couldn’t speak and thought it was a robber. She reached to turn on the light, and the man disappeared.. “He was dressed in a flattened turban and a long white robe with a bright red shirt or scarf beneath it that went up onto his throat”, Davis says.

 

Tony Kenton, Marketing Director, Graphic Arts Industry, London:

In the late 1980s, he traveled to a trade convention in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. All rooms were booked when he arrived late, so he and his wife were asked to stay at another hotel. Kenton went to sleep but was awakened by “a blood-curdling scream” and his wife grabbing his arm “with all the strength of a 300-pound sumo wrestler.” Kenton says his wife was shaking and pointing, and more scared than he had ever seen. He says he felt “a deep chill” spreading from where his wife was pointing and saw the curtain move. His wife told him that she had seen a man dressed in old-fashioned clothing looking down at them. The couple immediately checked out of the hotel, and the staff asked if anything was wrong. “I said, ‘No, my wife just had a bad dream,’ ” Kenton says. “They looked at each other and said nothing.” He says the bellboy took their bags to their car, then asked, “Did she see him then?” Kenton says he replied, “Who?” The bellboy, Kenton says, “simply turned and walked away.

 

Frances Kermeen, Author Ghostly Encounters, Oceanside, Calif:

Kermeen bought The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, La., in 1980 and lived there for 10 years. She has visited many times since, including last year, and says she’s always experienced paranormal activity. “I brought my new husband last year, and he swore he would never return,” she says. “The place is still as active as ever.” When she lived there, “at least three paranormal activities occurred every week, often daily, sometimes several a day. I used to tell guests that if they stayed three days, they were guaranteed to have some sort of experience, and they always did.” She says she witnessed voices, footsteps, apparitions, a baby crying, beds that “float off the ground,” late-night parties that stopped “upon investigation” and “radical changes in room temperature.” Sometimes, she says, “deep guttural growling that is neither human nor animal” was heard. And, she says, “two little girls, poisoned in 1924, play on the grounds and approach people with chatter.” Many guests, especially children, told her that a large, matronly African-American woman appeared next to their bed, tucked in their covers, and, if needed, pulled up a blanket.

 

Tim Pearson, Partner, Taxi Branding Industry, Minneapolis:

He and his wife were sleeping at a Seattle hotel in August 2007 when someone knocked loudly on the door at 3 a.m. “I go to the peep hole and see a guy in old-fashioned clothing and a hat across the hall, leaning on a door,” Pearson says. He called the front desk, and a hotel employee immediately came to his room. Though the employee had to use the same hallway as anyone outside his room, the employee encountered no one. “The next night, same experience,” Pearson says. When hotel staff arrived, the guy in the old-fashioned clothing had “vanished.” He was told that he wasn’t the first guest to experience sightings and that some staff members had similar experiences.

 

Marti Mayne, Owner, Marketing Company, Yarmouth, Maine:

Mayne is spokeswoman for BedandBreakfast.com, an on-line directory and reservations site for B&Bs that lists information about haunted B&Bs every fall. It listed about 125 B&Bs in 2009 and the list is growing. She says there have been numerous sightings of a ghost at a hotel in Bretton Woods. “The story is told that the countess who once lived there has simply never left,” she says. Mayne encountered a ghost there in 2004. She walked out the front doors and walked down the driveway toward the parking lot. “I heard an ethereal voice saying, “Marti Mayne, Marti Mayne. The voice was loud and sounded like it was coming from the top of the driveway or from a window in the hotel.” Mayne quickly turned around and didn’t see anyone, yet the voice continued to call her name. “Each time I heard it, I’d wheel around to see if I could see who was calling my name, and still no one was there,” she says. “Finally, after about three or four minutes of this, I yelled back, “What?”. Her response stopped her name from being called. She had another encounter a few years ago at an inn in Jackson, where housekeepers see shadows from a ghost who is believed to be Jason, a 22-year-old former fix-it man. From time to time, guests hear hammering from what is believed to be his spirit still hanging around. Mayne was standing in the bar area talking to the owner and suddenly heard hammering noises coming from inside the wall. The owner ignored the hammering. She looked around and saw nothing. “Eventually the hammering became too loud to ignore, and we both just looked at each other,” Mayne says. She asked the owner, “Jason?” He nodded affirmatively.

 

Rob St. Helen, Night Auditor, The Heathman Hotel Portland, Ore. :

St. Helen worked at the hotel for two years and has seen an apparition and “shadow people”. He and another employee opened a meeting room door and saw a male apparition from the waist up behind a podium, he says. They walked toward it, and it disappeared. He says he’s also seen shadow people sitting at a lobby table and walking down a second-floor hallway. St. Helen says guests have checked out because there was “something” in their rooms. Last year he talked to a business traveler who had seen a woman crying in a corner chair in his room.

 

So, every time you are checking at a hotel, wherever that may be, pay attention! You could have an encounter with the unseen world that makes itself visible for you! Try not to get scared too much…in fact some may even enjoy the experience. And most importantly: show compassion for these poor souls.

    Wow…..sound scary reading this stories of ghost or spirits found in a number of hotels. Each of the hotel have an interesting scary story where guest experienced smoky encounter with unseen beings.
    Ghosts, the paranormal and the supernatural have always been debated. Do they really exist? Many people have reported sightings of ghost before, for decades in places like in hospitals or hotels and so forth. Yes to me they exist and they are from the lower realm stuck in places where terrible happenings to them or some sort. Researchers had even proof that ghost do exist and are real, some even caught in pictures. Well… reading this article ,had me have a second thought of staying in those hotel as mentioned. It seem that ghost or spirits are every where. I did encountered while staying in hotel years back.
    May sentient beings from all realms be liberated from their suffering .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these scary stories of hotels.

  2. Samfoonheei on Jun 22, 2017 at 1:26 pm

    Interesting and scary stories been told and experienced by many individual whom they encountered that seem to be spirits or ghost.Everyone experiences ghost sightings differently. These sightings appear to be as unique as the individuals who once inhabited the earth.
    Ghosts can be understood as non-physical consciousness.I do believe it exist but as long as we do not disturb them it would be fine.
    Ghost sighting have been reported for decades in places like in hospitals or hotels where there was dead patients or killing taken placed.Often occur in older buildings with inadequate ventilation and poor air quality. Scientific proof that ghost do exist and are real.
    Those who passed away in accident or of a sudden death, sadly with attachment,not prepared for death ,their souls tends to be round then.
    The stories mentioned above sound scary and i do enjoyed reading all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    This article brings to mind that ghosts really are among the most widely believed paranormal phenomena and most people believe in ghosts because of personal experience; they have either seen or sensed some unexplained presence.

    In fact, we find that most cultures all around the world believe in spirits that survive death to live in another realm. Even Albert Einstein have been taunted to have provided a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts; if energy cannot be created or destroyed but only change form, there is a possibility that our body’s energy can manifest as a ghost when we die. Of course, such theory is widely debated with no conclusive end in sight. Thus, suffice to say that on the flip side, in this day and age, the number of sceptics crank up to a significant number.

    Nonetheless, when it comes to ghost sightings or claims of hauntings, even the non-believers would exercise caution anyway. That is because humans tend to fear the unknown. Such fear stems from our survival instinct to protect the self.

    For me (admittedly a believer in the existence of ghosts), it also then goes to show that the instinct to protect oneself is the more of the issue rather than the object of the ghost. After all, it appears that such ghosts or spirits are not out to get us per se but really are preoccupied by their own attachments which led them to their circumstances in the first place. This is not to say that we can’t be harmed by ghosts as if we have the karma for it to occur, we will be affected by this harm. Thankfully, there are ways to protect oneself and handle such situation. An interesting write up on some of those ways can be found at https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/paranormal-protection.html

  4. Andrea Lai on Jan 2, 2017 at 10:44 pm

    I have encountered similar things like this before.I think it happened about 20 years ago.

    It was a 2 days, 1 night holiday trip to Buntong,Thailand with a group of friends.I remembered that day was the 15th days of CNY(Chap Goh Mei),as most of the hotels were almost fully booked.We went thru hunting for hotels and at last we found one which is non other than 1 to 2 star hotel.When I first checked in,I felt nothing much but when I start checking with the bathroom,I heard strange voices.I thought the voices was from radio which connected from the room.So I went out from the bathroom to search for the button but there is NO switch at all.Before I could inform my room mate about this,she dragged me out for shopping.When we back to the room later,the situation remained so I assumed NOTHING.Strange things happened when we sleep that night.Both of us have difficulty in sleeping.The next day,while we about to check out I went into the bathroom before leaving.I heard the voices said,”you are leaving,better leave..you are not welcome…”(LOL).

    After we left,on our way back home,my friend told me that the room we stayed in was haunted.I believed so,caused I heard there’s about 3 different voices in the bathroom,the voices of 2 male and a woman but they speak mix languages,Cantonese,Mandarin,Hokkien and Siamese,as I recalled back.That night,I can’t sleep well and I have stiff neck the next day where else my friend told me,she hurt somebody blabbering at her ear the whole night til dawn.Both of us suffer little severe body acne due to the sleep.

    When such thing happen to me,I feel nothing but now I recalled back this incident I feel a bit scary even sharing my experience here too (LOL).Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  6. Edward Ooi on Nov 20, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, The Provincial Hotel and the Crescent Hotel looks really creepy even from the outside. even thought the Queen Mary Hotel is haunted, I still thinks that it’s cool that there is a ship hotel where we can look out of the window from the hotel room. What a cool way to enjoy the view. And finally, well spirits are all over the world.

  7. edward ooi on Feb 6, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, all of these ghost story about spirits haunting hotel is very interesting and i feel very bad for peoples that died in the hotels or ship. The saddest of all is the spirits of children playing in the hotel because when they past away they are still are still in a very young age. This means that death is uncertainty and we could die anytime. I will start appreciating my life from now on, if i don’t appreciate my own life after i die i may be reborn as a hell being or spirits or maybe animals. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these stories

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing stories of haunted hotels here.

    I guess haunting events can happen anywhere – on road, nearby ponds or simply anywhere. I guess it is that if people passed away with deep sorrows or attachments and wanted to linger around at certain areas, their souls will stay there as long as they want.

    If a hotel where we stay in is haunted, it adds more burden onto ourselves as this is the place where we would spend at least 6 hours a day in for a good sleep. When haunting happens during midnight, it is even more helpless for us.

    I know a person who stays near my house (he is a tenant) who will always keep lights in his room on when he sleeps and that he will not turn off his alarm clock (like most of us will do) when it goes off. Rather, he will just let it rings, perhaps until the moment when he really gets out of his bed. He used to be a gangster in the past, the auntie who rents this room to him told me that it may be that he has killed (accidentally or not) someone before and keeping the light on will help to dispel the ghost….I wont know. But this certainly sounds scary.

    THis happened two years agao . For the past few yeras I took a young man who has a form of dwarfism ( called Morquio.), to his cottage, He could not reach the stove and cupbords so I was there and loved the location and all the years we went wher peaceeful and restful. He gave me this yearly vacation at Bear Creek in Ontario Canada on Lake Nippissing. . I thought it strange at the time yet before going a Native Friend of mine told me he didnot like that lake because of a nasty spirit in it. That this spirit ( he even had a name for it) would make a wirl pool like wave that can come up in the shallow lake and take people from their baots.
    .
    I still very much looked forward to this vacation and I went away with my friend. We stayed in another Cottage instead of the one we usually got., The weather was not as nice and the water level down the being the most they’d seen in over 30 years. I got realy depressed, strange I thought, and my body hurt and I just was not interested in mingling with others so stayed allot inside read etc. One day the wind came up so fast as I rushed to close the many windows across the front of the cottage where the direction of the wind came off the lake, and heard my bedroom window smash, even thought it was at the back and one of the two bedrooms. . I had placed some carbaord until someone baorded it up the next day , I had strange dreams and nightmares of stabbings killing etc.

    When the week endedI was rather glad to be home with my hsuband safe and sound LOL. yet the dreams continued, The dreadfull feeling too!

    My husband and I had to go to a funeral , my husbands best friends, Dad passed on and afterwards went to the reception sharimng some food and comraderie support, and this friend’s wife, asked me if I knew about the person who drowned at Bear Creek, the very place we stayed wth it happening the week before I was there. She told me the story of a young father, plucked right out of his baot leaving his wife and kids safely behind. and that he drowned. Then I saw him in my minds eye. He was so angry that he’d been taken and everytime I asked him to go off to heaven and wrapping him in Gold he yell nooooo! my love ones are here. I could not deal with his pain and anguish to the point I ould not creatively think of another thing to appeal to him with , I truly felt his love for his love ones here so important to him, and he could ot tink of the ones already crossed over. Perhaps his histeria I felt was the fact he truly didot know he had died It felt like total fear.

    I went to a friend , She sells Tibetan Insence ( which I now carry this product in my own business ) After, telling her this story and my continued depressed feelings and a nightmare one of which really got to me and that was seeing myself stabbing my beloved Dog ah! that was just so up setting for me,it lingered far after the experience .

    She says ” Oh! did smething follow you home from vacation?”. So I bought some insence heavy purge. daytime and night time The biig guns so to speak, naw not really 🙂 it is suppose to liberate those suffering souls.

    However as I drive on my way home after buying some insence, I asked him to go into the light I saw him in a white shirt now. I told him yes his family is here and well and that oneday he’d be with them again and to think also of those gone already , that there was nothing now he can do about this that he has passed over and I am so sorry about that , any he smiled and waved good Bye, The feelings lifted and I never saw him again. Yet I was happy I could help in this way, through grace.

    I just told this story to a friend just last week . She knows about seeing spirits allot more than I . After the story she held her head in her hands as someone she knew of was stabbed many many times to death just across the lake from Bear Creek perhaps a few months eearlier from when when this young man drowned. I was vacationing there the end of July 2010.. Thanks for the oportunity to share this experiece Blessings Sheilagh Mercer.

    Celebrities like Pink , Chrissie Hynde , Sir Paul McCartney, Benji Madden naming a few who had use their fame for good cause. These celebrities truly are using their impactful voices to influence millions to do good, voicing opinions on matters such as fighting against illegal fishing, created viral memes to educate people about climate change, speaking out for women’s rights , eating healthy foods and to be a vegetarian for good to save animals been slaughter and so on. These celebrities have tremendous influence, acting as role models to many young people so as adults, even with their busy schedule. They has been influential in supporting its mission of saving animals been slaughter for human consumption across the globe. Great and truly inspiring.

    Looking at the pictures tells us more….sad and heart-felt seeing those innocent kittens is shot dead by someone who is so cruel. How can whoever who did it so senseless . What goes around will comes around. The mother cat kept licking the kittens, from the picture ,heart broken seeing all her love ones dead. Could not imagine that situation, sad that one of the kitten had the chest cut open and heart exposed with the neck tied with a rope. The other three kittens were already been shot yet their heads were stepped on. Horrible death those poor kittens, may these kitten have a good rebirth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this blog and feeling sad . Soolam a Golden Retriever, who was a service dog specifically trained to perform work and assist the writer since as a small furry. Soolam was one loyal companion and dear friend indeed to the writer. To euthanize a furry friend is hard felt for the writer as the Golden Retriever could not stand or walk, and even eat. Whatever he eats will throw out. Looking at the pictures the heartfelt writer hold on spending a precious moments with his doggie before he was euthanized. Soolam was a celebrity featuring in scores of times in newspapers, TV and radio. He even appeared as the main star of a special video about service dogs. The writer brought him everywhere he goes for meetings , travelling long distance and so forth over the decades. Well…. he finally laid to rest with his friend. The writer later found Zhar a new friend during a very strange coincidence.
    A beautiful story indeed , with a happy ending.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    From lush rainforest to deserts, frogs are found in every environment on earth. There are many different species as well and colourful too. Unfortunately, an equally-horrific new fad has recently popped up in China, where millions of frogs are being coloured with industrial dyes. Those dyes contains a very high doses of chemical which is harmful to the frogs. They seem to be a popular trend in China and are in high demand at aquariums and ponds , some been keeping it as pets. Everywhere at wet market in China, the dyed frogs are being sold. The effect of injections of chemicals into the frog would be horribly injured or killed the frog. Recording to research the dyes being used on the frogs are dangerous and harmful to human as well.
    May all sales of these coloured frogs must be banned. Its more or less abusing animals in such a way frogs were treated as objects and not living creatures in need of care. In no time all these frogs will go extinction .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these meaningful and heartfelt pictures of those horses. Yes looking at those pictures indeed paint a thousand words. It is truly sad seeing that poor horse Jerry had to suffer. Making horses pull oversized loads like carriages is indeed cruel. They are forced to toil in all weather extremes, heavy traffic all day long. Well they might suffer in silence debilitating leg problems in long term as they have to walk on hard surfaces. Horses would definitely love to be free living on green fields where it’s a better environment for them. They could run freely as they wish. In many cities, horse-drawn carriages are seen as tourist attractions. Even though horse-drawn carriages have been in use for thousands of years , I do hope more countries will ban horse drawn carriages. Recent years many cities around the world are banning horse-drawn carriages. Great news as horse are not mend for hard surfaces, in heavy traffic and so forth.

    There’s nothing in this world like the unconditional happiness our 4-legged buddies give us humans. And, just like our 5 fingers, each of them are gifted with their own personality and unique qualities.

    We should have a first hand knowledge before adopting one. Dog behaviour can be puzzling to both new and experienced dog owners.Thank you very much for the informative article.

    Thank you for the beautiful and historical sharing of Baba Nyonya community in Malaysia. As we know this group is small and their journey begins first at Malacca, then continued to Penang, Singapore, and Indonesia.

    The intermarriage between Chinese and Malay except formed a unique lifestyle and also created out a new culture, customs, festivals, tradition foods clothing, design and entertainment.

    May this rich culture and colourful tradition be preserved and practiced by the younger generation, and do hope this special heritage will live everlasting with us.

    Every where there is spirits or unseen beings . Even old tress do have spirits too. Heard of it those days but for one to see it daily is scary. I am sure Rinpoche’s mother had goose bumps seeing the old man spirit. Luckily not a harmful spirit. Tree spirit is a nature deity related to a tree and are present in many cultures. As many of us do believed that if we cut down a tree with a spirit dwelling in it, is not so good. We are disturbing them. To avoid any misfortune we have prayers to appease the tree spirits, asking their permission to do so…..clearing obstacles or any ugly incident happenings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    nspiring video of a Portuguese boy with strong imprints. His dinner plate was served with rice, potatoes and octopus tentacles. After some questioning he told his mother that animals are not supposed to be eaten, but to be taken care of. This surprised his mother as her young son understands about the killings of animals. He don’t want to hurt animals , he knew the pain and sufferings of animals been killed . That’s wonderful , it’s a good beginning for a young boy to have compassion for animals at such a young age.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical belief that the soul after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life’s karma. Psychiatrist Ian Stevenson has investigated many reports of young children who claimed to remember a past life. Interesting findings. The belief in reincarnation is held by adherents of almost all major religions. Hence life after death and the possibility of reincarnation do happen. What happens to us when we die? Well this is an old question for which religions have provided answers with faith. One of the mysteries puzzling human mind since the origin of mankind is the concept of “reincarnation”. I do believe in reincarnation and have come across friends who remembered their past lives. Recently I met an Indian Sikh lady who’s past life was a Buddhist. Beautiful stories from her too.
    Interesting read of this blog tells us more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the article and video sharing. It’s sad to see the reality of live of some people in the world has to go through so much suffering at younger age to survive.

    The early involvement of child labour is caused by their parents due the families economic hardship, parents need their help to perform their work or replacements when they are sick or old. Unfortunately the brick kiln management taking opportunity to misuse the labour by performing multiple task and treating them as slave.

    I do greatly appreciate the rightful action will be taken to prevent and to provide the new guidelines against the brick kiln owners who have tried to exploit workers.

    Interesting read about Goddess Gemu, being worshipped by the ancient tribal community Mosuo people in both Shamanistic Animism Tibetan Buddhism. The Mosuo are considered the last-remaining matriarchal society in China, where they are a culturally-rich people. The traditional Mosuo religion worships nature, with Lugu Lake regarded as the Mother Goddess. Their practice is incorporated to the Tibetan Buddhism practice in the region for decades. The Mosuo has their own syncretic faith called Daba and the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. The Goddess Gemu is the most widely worshipped by the Mosuo people. Glad to note that the traditional shamanism based Daba faith is concertedly with the Tibetan Buddhism faith. The Zha Mei monastery which is a gelupa monastery had a strong affiliation with Dorje Shugden and at the same accepted the worshiping of this Goddess. The 5 th Panglung Kuten did took Dorje Shugden trance at this monastery . Strangely the CTA cannot accept the practice of Dorje Shugden on the hand could accept an unenlightened protector deity Godess Gemu. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial so as the practice of Daba faith to the Mosus people.
    Well, may the Dorje Shugden ban soon going down into history for the benefits of all sentient beings.
    Thank you Valentina for a detail write up on the Gemu Goddess and those rare pictures of oracles by Dr.Joseph Rock who had explored the Tibetan borderlands .

    Walpola Rahula Thero was a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk, world renowned scholar and writer. Dr. Rahula is the first Buddhist monk to become a professor in a Western world. He has written extensively about Buddhism in English, French and Sinhalese. He was noted not only for his erudition but also for his strong socialist views. During his lifetime he was awarded several awards for his incredible work towards harmony.
    (Whatever we are Theravada or Mahayana, as Buddhists we all accept the Buddha as our Master who gave us the Teaching.)…..well said.
    Ven. Rahula was later instrumental in encouraging the formation of the first Theravada temple in the United States. He spent most of his life in teaching and lecturing before going back to Sri Lanka where he passed away. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
