Spirit in the sky?

Oh fine, not hard to work out the video, but which version. Quite a song, twice been a ‘one hit wonder’ and another artist who recorded it, topped charts, but was last hit of his career! So is this song jinxed, who knows?

Firstly let me say, as Dorothy, and Alice have said in a meme, I’ve seen, and done some crazy things in my life. Yes, I believe in ghosts, and there have been a couple of times (even excluding the weirdness with things in my room, in the past) when I have firmly believed I have been in the presence of ghosts, though as far as I know, I’ve never actually seen one. Clearly the intrigue about the ghosts of Harlow, and one of her former husbands, Paul Bern intrigue me no end. True or not, no idea, though the comments relating to 1 sighting of Jean suggests the ghost was sassy enough to have been her! But hey, most people have an idea how she would behave, so cautious of saying it was her, though.

Indeed, my only contact with people from a past life, is my famous past life regression, and because of the nature of it, my memories of the whole event are slightly vague. Sadly not recorded, as I’m told ‘my voice’ was nothing like my own, so clearly it was Clara talking!

In my sheltered life, I’ve never been to a medium. I have no desire to talk to my parents ever again, and until Clara appeared, in truth, I had no one who had passed away that I wanted to talk to. Now, if I got the chance to talk to Jean, or Clara, you bet I would! Nor have I ever been to a seance, not in a serious sense, via a medium, or even that thing that so many teens seemed to do, with the Ouija Board!

But yes, when a friend in LA was discussing holding a seance later this year, I was interested. Even more so when May was suggested as a possible date. Sadly it looks like it will happen before I reach town, but yes, I would have gone if I’d been there. I know, Clara probably wouldnt show, and I’m even more certain Jean wouldnt have done, but you can never tell! In truth, I’d rather it be Clara, as I’d love to know more about her, given the exceedingly limited information available about her. I hope to solve some of that issue in September, but fine, if I found out more in May, and I could go and pay my respects, that would just be so special! Oh to know her married name! No, I have no great desire to look through all the Los Angeles marriage records from 1937 to about 1942, if I can help it! But…? Though I guess, if someone could get me entry into the records office, I could be tempted to spend a few hours looking!

So yes, if anyone knows of a genuine medium, or seance event, in LA, between May 18, and 26, let me know. No, I cant afford a private appointment before you ask, far too poor for that!

Right, the video. The song you know, the version you might not. This is the middle version that reached Number 1, and no, I’m not either of the women in this lol!

Ghosts, reincarnation, and regression

I have to admit, the whole issue of the supernatural, ghosts and things, is an issue I dont have any terribly strong opinions on, either way. No, as far as I know, I’ve never seen a ghost, though I know a number of people who say they have, and they arent the types I would have thought of making things up, or having had too much to drink at the time. And yes, if in the ‘other world’, you’re reading this, Jean, then yes, I’d love to meet!

No, I’m not getting involved on alien abductions though, as I’ve never met anyone who claims its happened to them, and most of the ones I’ve seen on film, claiming its happened, well, I wouldnt like to totally believe them, shall we say?

What brought this up, was something on Twitter. Yes, I can hear some groaning from here. There is a lovely lady on there (Spanish, Hispanic, or of that ancestry) who was feeling a bit down yesterday, so I did my best to cheer her up, with a friendly late night posting, in my good natured, and caring way.

I got a lovely reply, saying ‘thank you, Jean.’ even though she knows my real name, wonderfully sweet, and something I loved at the end of a 10.5 hour shift at work. I made a comment back about maybe I’d get a visit from Jean’s ghost (decent evidence there is one), and she might decide to stay. I got a reply suggesting I was already her reincarnation, highly flattering. She might be right, who knows?

Reincarnation is an interesting issue, indeed with some religions, its part of their beliefs. And looking at it in a sense, there is a decent enough gap between Jean’s death, and my birth, for her to have been given a break, before coming back as me! Mind, I would have thought I’d have been a better actress in that case, but anyway…You dont come back, literally as yourself in your previous life, I guess? But surely, if her ghost still walks the Earth, she couldnt be reincarnated?

Maybe one of these days, under hypnosis, I might find out. So far all I’ve done is therapeutic stuff, plus the session with Lex, which was definitely great fun, and amazing, but I’ve never done any of this regression stuff, into past lives and the like, but maybe I will sometime. Wouldnt it be amazing, if I discovered I really was Harlow reincarnate? No, I shouldnt think I am, but I might be! One friend is training to do it, so if I get the chance, then yes, I’d love to find out.

Who knows, maybe Jean’s ghost will tell me, in either KC in September, or Hollywood next April, wouldnt that be a way to meet your first ghost?

The video, my belief on these matters…maybe? 😉

Spirits in the material world?

Ah, lets get on to a subject of popular debate, and one loosely linked to my holiday in September, as you will see shortly. Is there really such a thing as ghosts, or is it just imagination…or alcohol?

No, I’m not going to go off on the whole haunted house thing, I’m totally non committal on the whole affair anyway, but I’ve heard a few tales.

As far as I know, I’ve never seen a ghost, but how can you be sure? You pass so many people on the street, or in busy buildings, how are you to know if they are truly flesh and blood…or just a spirit passing by? Fine, the likelihood is 99.9% certain they are real, but…can you be totally sure?

As I say, I’m torn, though I’ve never seen a ghost (to my knowledge), I have certainly felt a presence in a room, when nobody else has been there, so…? Your call!

So how does this relate to me, and my Kansas holiday, you might ask? Obvious answer, Jean Harlow!

I am never sure how much credence to put into these stories, but given there have been supposedly a number of sightings of her ghost, in her Westwood home, in California, well…? Does her spirit still walk this world, in that home, where one of her husbands met a mysterious death? No, it isnt believed that Jean killed him herself, general views are either suicide, or his former wife, but…her ghost? From comments I’ve read, her ghost is quite a character, assuming its her, and assuming they are true sightings.

But sadly, unless her ghost decides to pay a visit home to Kansas City, in mid September, I will never know! Obviously I would be thrilled if she did, but even if the stories are true, I assume she’s tied to that house in California? But if she can travel, the option to visit, or to stay in my body, her call!

But until I meet a ghost, for real, I’m keeping my options open. Oh, the dates, if you’re reading this, Jean. I’ll be in Kansas City (and the locality) from 13th, until the 20th of September, and I’d love to meet you. Maybe I could discover just how much of a lookalike I am! But seriously, no, I dont expect it to happen, but a girl can dream.

I will also have the thrill of a visit to Cherryvale, the birthplace of Louise Brooks to look forward to as well, cant wait. And no, I’ve heard no stories at all of her ghost roaming the world.

The video, rather apt, despite the song being against the government of the time, and nothing to do with ghosts!
