Spirits Of The Theatre

The Bay Street Theatre in one Florida city was once one of the most elegant theaters in Florida but sadly is now a mere ‘ghost’ if you will of its former self. Theatrical productions still thrive however, as do the encounters with the supernatural. Screams have been heard in the upstairs costume and prop rooms, orbs have been witnessed and presences felt. A man was seen hanging by his neck from a hole in the balcony ceiling. On several occasions during technical rehearsals the switch board on the same balcony operated unmanned, randomly turning lights on and once the main spotlight dimmed and pulsed slowly to a heartbeat rhythm. The area under the stage known as "the hole" has marked temperature variations and few people will go down there because of the sense of a presence. Nearly everyone who has worked there has some kind of experience, there are simply too many to list.

The Curse Of The Sacred Stone

In Peru, there is was incident which came to be named The Curse of The Sacred Stone. Here is what happened according to sources. While visiting a ‘sacred’ sight, a man grabbed a stone and stuffed it into his pocket as a souvenir. This was a definite no-no according to the signs and guides at the site. It is said that later, the man felt a burning sensation in his pocket where the stone was resting however he gave it no further thought. That night as he tried to sleep, the lights in the room would flicker on and off. He said that while he lay in bed, he could feel strange sensations such as suddenly feeling cold even though his room was quite warm during the Peruvian summer. As he lay sleeping, he felt his bed suddenly move waking him from his slumber. He reported the same thing happened on the second night. Finally after being told of a possible ‘curse’ by an old descendant of the Incas, he returned the stone back to the sacred grounds. That night, the lights remained off, and he felt no chills or his bed moving. Imagination or true happenings? He swears it to be true. Could something like that really happen?

A Motel With Spirit(s)

There is a certain motel on Congress Avenue in Boynton Beach, Florida that is said to be haunted by spirits. Of course if you drive around this country, there are many roadside motels that look like they could be haunted too. Anyway, many people who have stayed in this particular motel have reported to have seen apparitions of human figures roaming through the hallways. Were they restless spirits wandering around in search of peace, or were they just looking for the motel bar with the mediocre cover band? One thing is for sure, this motel is said to have been built on top of an old Indian Burial Ground, and the spirits don’t take kindly to their sacred place being trampled on by a bunch of tourists with sandals and black socks, or anyone else for that matter.
