The Queen Mary

Many of you intuited this place and things about it right on the dot!  I chose this location because the energy of the boiler room is palpable. Can’t you imagine yourself walking down that plank way?

Excerpted from TheHauntedHoneymoon.com:

“The boiler room held a particularly interesting story of a man named John Pedder. He is one of the most famous ghosts of the Queen Mary. He was a fireman in the engine room that was crushed by the infamous “Door 13” in the part of the ship known as “Shaft Alley.” Apparently during emergencies, the watertight doors would be closed to seal off sections of the ship to avoid sinking. The legend goes that crew members would hop back and forth through the doorways as many times as they could before the door would close. John Pedder apparantly tried one too many times and was crushed by the closing door.”

“A man seen wearing blue overalls sometimes described as having a beard has been seen walking down shaft alley and disappearing at Door 13. On the Ghost and Legends Tour aboard the Queen Mary, they refer to this man as “Half Hatch Harry,” but that was not the real name. John Pedder is listed on the sign in the infirmary of crew members that died.”

Psychic Games #16 Answer Revealed

Charlene Murphy

Denver Children’s Home

The Denver Orphan Home was founded in 1876 by the Ladies Relief Society. It was meant to provide care for the orphans who had been brought to Colorado to work on railroads and in mines. The young souls who passed through its walls have littered the charitable organization’s past with sad events.

Now known as the Denver Children’s Home, the organization still provides youth services to the community. But the unfortunate history of this 138-year-old organization includes numerous exorcisms, a fire that claimed the lives of several children and the spirit of a sullen, lonely bride that wanders the halls.

The haunted happenings at the Denver Children’s Home include details of distant cries, whimpers and the voices of children.

Charlene’s Two Cents:

This one is personal for me. My first teaching job, straight out of college was at Denver Children’s Home (DCH). I was so drawn to this place by the beautiful haunting architecture of the building. It called me.

Denver Children’s Home consisted of two sections: Residential Care and Day Treatment. I was a teacher in the Day Treatment sector, but often took overnight shifts in the residential facility for extra income. I had a favorite girls dorm that I felt a certain protective vibe over. It was a moody place, but not scary.

Denver Children’s Home is what made a believer out of me when it came to spirits, residual energies and the effects these energies have on the present moment and/or people. It also made me a firm believer in the crazy influences of a full moon, as I could predict full moons by the number of kids who would be in lock-down for being out of control and dangerous.

My time at DCH was long before my intentional exploration into metaphysics. It catapulted me there unwillingly, unknowingly.

One night, I was asked to cover the overnight shift in a different dorm. It was a younger dorm with lots of male energy. I ended up leaving early in tears. I was hysterical and scared out of my mind. I was so embarrassed to be such a cry-baby, but that was then. Knowing what I know now, I’d love to go back and explore that haunted, dark and miserable dorm room with the tragic bathroom. I’m sure I’d still be sad, but I wouldn’t be scared.

Mind you, the overnight shift is from lights out til morning. Kids are typically sleeping. It’s quiet. A good time to read, study or correct papers. This one night in particular, I saw shadows, felt extremely creeped out. I was drawn to the large dorm bathroom and those tiles on the walls,  yet terrified of it. Every nerve in my body was on end. I kept seeing fire and one particular fire starter, a disturbed young boy full of fury. I felt fire, death, abuse, abandonment… such sadness.

I called down to the main station sobbing. I couldn’t explain why. I told them I was scared and to please send someone down. Everyone who worked at DCH was either a teacher or counselor, so I was counseled and stayed a bit longer until I just couldn’t take any more. I felt people were in the bathroom peeking around the corners, staring at me. I didn’t want to open my eyes for fear of what I might see.

I finally left, running down the hall back to the station unable to take any more. Needless to say, they never called me back to cover any night shifts. Thank goodness my teaching job in the Day Treatment was secured.

After my nightmarish experience, I asked my colleagues about ghosts or hauntings. I was told there were urban legends of hauntings, but nobody believed in that stuff. The staff at DCH were all very wonderful, healing people with very clinical mindsets.

I dropped the subject, but I knew there was much more going on in that building that met the eye. I decided to never step inside the Residential quarters again. I didn’t. I didn’t have to. I could still feel the sadness, isolation of this place. Yet, I was drawn to stay on for three more years, until the day my son was born. I felt compelled to provide my nurturing energy to the place. It needed my love. They needed my love.

I just came to find out that DCH was an onsite location for the filming of An American Horror Story. So appropriate.

Even though I am no longer affiliated with DCH, I have tremendous respect for the continuing work DCH provides for Colorado’s most vulnerable children and families. I’m sure they would appreciate your donations, should you feel moved to give. You can donate HERE.

Psychic Games #15 – Answer Revealed

Alice Paul
Women’s Rights Activist (1885–1977)

Suffragette Alice Paul dedicated her life’s work to women’s rights and was a key figure in the push for the 19th Amendment.

Alice Paul was an amazing, resilient and determined woman. I lovingly refer to her as a total badass! She played several sports like basketball, baseball and field hockey during her school days which was uncommon for a girl in the late 19th century.

She never married or had children. She had a mission to accomplish and she did it. Alice paved the way for women today. This woman was a true visionary. She fought for our right to vote and got it. Thank you, Alice!

She was frequently jailed and placed in a mental institution, a feeble attempt to quash her spirit, but she was well connected with similar badass women, referred to as “Iron Jawed Angels” and a few men, who would not allow it.

alice-paul3

 

Not only was Alice an advocate for women’s rights, she was also active in the Peace Movement.  I’m so happy she lived to see her dream realize and evolve.

Here’s what you all picked up:

  • Independent – completely and totally
  • Successful – changed the world
  • NY – she attended grad school in NY. Born in New Jersey
  • No children – many of you got that
  • Associated with an institution – attended many universities, spent time in jail and a mental institution
  • Spiritualist – was raised Quaker
  • Farm – was raised on a farm
  • Traditional name – many of you got a name that begins with A
  • Sad and lonely – I’m sure she had her moments, especially when ignored, tortured and jailed
  • Walking with a friend – her bestie, Lucy Burns formed the National Women’s Party with Alice
  • Inspired by thought – totally! She was a visionary
  • Active mind – until her death, she remained quite active and inspired
  • Educated – very much so
  • Totally into her work – her work was her life. No marriage, kids or documented relationships
  • Reserved and introverted – indeed!
  • Known for making her mark – AMEN for the right to vote and the Equal Rights Amendment!!
  • Teacher and writer – many people picked this up. She most definitely was a teacher, but not in the traditional sense. She taught by example, by protest, by creating a new reality. And she wrote the Equal Right Amendment… for starters.

Excellent intuiting, y’all!

More about Alice from Biography.com…

alice-paul2

Born on January 11, 1885, in Moorestown, New Jersey, Alice Paul grew up Quaker and attended Swarthmore College before living in England and pushing for women’s voting rights. When she returned to America in 1910, she became a leader in the suffragist movement, eventually forming the National Woman’s Party with Lucy Burns and becoming a key figure in the voices that led to the passage of the 19th Amendment. In later years she advocated for the passage of an Equal Rights Amendment as well. She died in Moorestown on July 9, 1977.

Early Life and Schooling

Alice Paul was born on January 11, 1885, in Moorestown, New Jersey. Influenced by her Quaker family, she studied at Swarthmore College in 1905 and went on to do graduate work in New York City and England.

While in London from 1906 to 1909, Paul became politically active and unafraid to use dramatic tactics in support of a cause. She joined the women’s suffrage movement in Britain and was arrested on several occasions, serving time in jail and going on a hunger strike.

Activist for Women’s Right to Vote

alice-paul4When she returned to the United States in 1910, Paul became involved in the women’s suffrage movement there as well. Driven also to change other laws that affected women, she earned a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1912.

At first, Paul was a member of the National American Woman Suffrage Association and served as the chair of its congressional committee. Out of frustration with NAWSA’s policies, however, Paul left to form the more militant Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage with Lucy Burns. The group was later renamed the National Woman’s Party with the goal of implementing change on a federal level.

Known for using provocative visual media to make their point, NWP members known as the “Silent Sentinels” picketed the White House under the Woodrow Wilson administration in 1917, making them the first group to take such action. Paul was jailed in October and November of that year as a result of the protests.

Pushing for an Equal Rights Amendment

After women won the right to vote with the 19th Amendment in 1920, Paul devoted herself to working on additional empowerment measures for women. In 1923, she introduced the first Equal Rights Amendment in Congress and in later decades worked on the civil rights bill and fair employment practices. Although she did not live to see the ERA added to the U.S. Constitution, she did get an equal rights affirmation included in the preamble to the United Nations charter.

Until she was debilitated by a stroke in 1974, Alice Paul continued her fight for women’s rights. She died on July 9, 1977, in the town of her birth.
