I took a ghost tour of Griffith Park last night with my good friend Richie through GHOULA. The tour consisted of riding through the park in a van, while a very nice gentleman provided wonderful information.
I had a few interesting experiences as we landed in some areas throughout the park.
My first experience:
We approached a location where apparently many individuals died in a fire that circulated their vicinity and caused them to be trapped within. The tour guide mentioned that approximately 50 individuals were said to have died during the fire. As soon as he mentioned this, I received the following information psychically: "NO."
I must admit that I was caught off guard with this message. I kept getting: "No. No. No. No. No." I was like: "Ummmmmmm... what does this mean? Why am I getting this?"
I was not trying to tap into anything last night. I just wanted to enjoy the evening without having to psychically "think" and "feel." I told myself that I did not want to experience much with regards to psychically sensing things, but I guess I wasn't stern enough with my own regulations.
Anyhow, I thought it was interesting that I received a message indicating that the death count was incorrect. As soon as I began to question the reason for that psychic response, the tour guide stated: "It is said that this amount is incorrect. The number is actually much higher. The reason that this number was given is because they lost count on how many individuals died-- the number they provided is the last place they stopped counting."
I didn't want to question much or tap into anything because, once again-- I just wanted to enjoy my night and learn more about Griffith Park hauntings through a historical perspective.
I took note of this experience and moved on.
The next spot came around.
We got out of the van for this visit.
This location was right outside of the Old Zoo. As soon as I got out of the van, I was directed to look towards the direction where Bee Rock Trail is. I was instantly told: "Blue light. Blue light. Look for the blue light."
I looked. I didn't see anything.
My focus was more on the tree, which had a crazy looking aura.
.... so I'm looking and focusing on the tree's aura, and I'm being told that an orb is going to appear. I kind of brush it off-- like: 'Yea right-- this is the imaginary part of my brain speaking. Nothing is going to happen. "
All of the sudden, I see a bright light in the sky. The light is floating and floating -- headed in the direction towards Bee Rock. The light instantly turns blue, as it leaves the sky background and contrasts itself against Bee Rock.
Everyone in our group notices this bright light and responds: "What is that? What is that blue light? Is that a car?"
The ball of light just keeps floating past the rock until *poof* it just disappears out of nowhere.
Everyone begins to trip out on what just happened. They asked if it was a car again, and I told them that it was not a car because I saw the light floating in the sky a few seconds ago.
Griffith Park is something else.
... so we move on to the next place, a lovely location called Ferndale or something like that. The tour guide mentions that this location is famous for it's Faeries.
This struck me, as I was at a concert the night before (Thievery Corporation and Stephen Marley-- best time of my life FYI heehee) over on the other side of the park, and I noticed something that looked like a Faerie flying up into the sky. It was glowing white and it looked sparkly- like it was flying and leaving a trail of dust.
I searched the internet for an image that represents what I say, and this is what I found:
It didn't quite look like a bug, although, I guess it could have passed as a bug-- but not really. I don't know what it was that I saw. I know that TRUE Faeries are not depicted in the traditional sense-- media wise that is, but I don't really know much about them, as I haven't studied them enough to know.
All I know is that it looked really neat as it flew high into the sky, as the dreamy Thievery Corp sounds played. It was definitely a magical moment.
... so yea, these were my interesting encounters at Griffith Park.
I totally enjoyed the experience GHOULA provided-- they did an awesome job in providing us with some good information. I really learned a lot last night! I definitely recommend taking a tour with them-- they have their stuff down pretty good.
I look forward to going to their next gathering. YAY!!!
... and now I am going to share some more info on the tour-- please see the posted section above/aside.
