The Plaza Hotel Located in Las Vegas, New Mexico

I stayed at The Plaza Hotel over the weekend and I was pretty excited because I had a ghost experience here when I was a child. My experience happened in the exact area of the black and white photo above, I saw an apparition. I have no evidence as I was just some weird 10 year old kid. But regardless I was excited to stay here. 

Here is the haunting claim according the the hotel website.

{X}

I tried to get room 310 which has the most activity but it was already taken, I was in room 326 but I went back and forth to that spot often. I took a ton of photos but was unable to get anything significant. During the night of our stay we heard a lot of banging noises, which we ruled out as possibly pigeons in the attack or something. It sounded like them flapping their wings. The other thing we experienced was we kept seeing something rush past our window, but we were unable to get any proof. Other then that the spot location in the photo above felt very creepy, we all felt very uncomfortable in that area with no explanation as to why.

To sum it up we got absolutely no evidence and could not conclude that the haunting of The Plaza Inn is in fact real. Next time we are in town we hope to be able to get room 310 and stay longer then one day and one night.

Greek Mythology:
Zeus

Zeus appears a lot in Greek Mythology. He was the King of the Gods, sky and weather, law and order, and fate. He is the son of Cronus and Rhea. 

Orphic Hymn 19 to Zeus of Thunder :

"To Zeus Keraunos (Thundering). O father Zeus, who shakest with fiery light the world, deep-sounding from thy lofty height. From thee proceeds the ethereal lightning’s blaze, flashing around intolerable rays. Thy sacred thunders shake the blest abodes, the shining regions of the immortal Gods. Thy power divine the flaming lightning shrouds with dark investiture in fluid clouds. ‘Tis thine to brandish thunders strong and dire, to scatter storms, and dreadful darts of fire; with roaring flames involving all around, and bolts of thunder of tremendous sound. Thy rapid dart can raise the hair upright, and shake the heart of man with wild affright. Sudden, unconquered, holy, thundering God, with noise unbounded flying all abroad; with all-devouring force, entire and strong, horrid, untamed, thou rollest the flames along. Rapid, ethereal bolt, descending fire, the earth, all-parent, trembles at thine ire; the sea all-shining, and each beast, that hears the sound terrific, with dread horror fears: when nature’s face is bright with flashing fire, and in the heavens resound they thunders dire. They thunders white the azure garments tear, and burst the veil of all-surrounding air. O Zeus, all-blessed, may thy wrath severe, hurled in the bosom of the deep appear, and on the tops of mountains be revealed, for thy strong arm is not from us concealed. Propitious to these sacred rites incline, and to thy suppliants grant a life divine, add royal health, and gentle peace beside, with upright reasoning for a constant guide."

Abaddon in the Old Testament

The name Abaddon is derived from its Hebrew root, meaning ‘to destroy.’ It is used six times throughout the Wisdom literature in the Old Testament. Proverbs 15:11, 27:20 and Job 26:6 draw parallels between Abaddon and Sheol.

  • Proverbs 15:11: “Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the Lord, How much more the hearts of men!”
  • Proverbs 27:20: “Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, Nor are the eyes of man ever satisfied.”
  • Job 26:6: “Naked is Sheol before Him, And Abaddon has no covering.”

In Ps 88:11, Abaddon is associated with graves.

  • Psalm 88:11: “Will Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave, Your faithfulness in Abaddon?”

In Job 31:12, Abaddon is described as a place of fire.

  • Job 31:12: “For it would be fire that consumes to Abaddon, And would uproot all my increase.”

While it may be argued that Prov 27:20, referring to Abaddon as “never satisfied,” is a personification of Abaddon, Job 28:22 is the first clear reference to Abaddon as an entity that can speak and hear.

  • Job 28:22: “Abaddon and Death say, ‘With our ears we have heard a report of it.’”

Lemp Masion Inn ; St Louis Missouri 

Some people say the Lemp Masion Inn and restaurant is haunted.  Though this could be because of the misfortunate deaths that occurred in history. Originally this was owned by the Lemp Family. In 1904 William Lemp committed suicide there, and that was the start of their misfortune. During the 1920’s his son Billy Lemp also took his life here, due to the families brewery business having financial hardships.  In 1949 Billy’s brother Charles committed suicide. The fourth recorded death was from a 13 year old mentally and physically disabled boy died in the attic, which he lived in. 

The Inn hosts ghost tours in which many visitors have made claims of seeing the spirits of the Lemps.

Jump scares, surprise attacks, and related.

mythoccult:

Last night and this morning I’ve gotten a few mesaages if I tag or have any posts that include jump scares and all alike.

Just so everyone knows; I do not and will not post things like that. I have PTSD and am prone to panic and anxiety attacks. things like that put me in distress.

If at some point anyone submits something I ask to not include related things.

Will be adding that to the terms of submission as soon as I am able.

Thank you for asking everyone.

Also just to note I may be getting a couple more admins, nothing is set in stone yet but I will let you know.

Aokigahara Forest  ; Japan 

Aokigahara Forest lies Northwest of Mount Fuji, Japan. Other names for it are Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees. According to Japanese Mythology, the forest has a historic past with demonic entities which may be the reason why people commit suicide here in alarming numbers. According to wikipedia, in 2010 there were reportedly 247 suicide attempts known and 54 of those succeeded. As of 2011 the most common way of committing suicide is by handing or drug overdose. Annual body searches have happened since the 1970’s, and many signs are put up that say to contact local authorities if you feel suicidal, or encouraging messages to help the person rethink their actions.

Grim Reaper Visits an Albuquerque Cemetery 

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – What happened at a local cemetery gave people the chills and stopped traffic on the highway, after witnesses swear the grim reaper paid Albuquerque a visit.

On the eve of the Supermoon, eyes of passersby were drawn to a dark figure looming over the San Jose del El Rosario Cemetery on Gibson by I-25.

“It was weird. It was scary. It was unusual,” Michelle Gonzales said. “At first I thought it was just an accident but then I noticed that people were starting to get out of their vehicles.”

Curiosity got the best of her and she stopped too, after seeing a tall dark figure standing in the cemetery entrance. She snapped a picture that showed a person wearing a black cloak over a white dress. The person’s face was also covered.

“He was just standing there holding something green,” Gonzales said. “It was weird.”

By that night, more pictures of the mysterious person started popping up on Facebook. In one picture you can see the figure holding a bouquet of flowers, that look as if he plucked them from a nearby field.

Another picture posted on the Inhabitants of Burque facebook page has been shared more than 150 times. The number of people commenting on the photo is in the hundreds.

“One guy said, seriously, maybe it’s the angel of death,” Gonzales said. “People were saying some weird stuff, but if you were here you would be thinking what the heck is that too.”

The San Jose Cemetery sits right off the interstate. Gonzales said some people stopped on I-25 to get a closer glance at the mysterious man. There was also a line of cars parked along Gibson and the on ramp.

“Cars were backed up way down there by that sign, this whole area, that’s how far cars were backed up,” Gonzales said, pointing down the road.

Witnesses said Albuquerque firefighters and police officers responded, but APD has not confirmed they were there. So what he was doing and why, may only be known to the person underneath the cloak.

“This has to be the weirdest thing I’ve seen,” said Gonzales.

A similar person dressed the same way has been spotted in downtown Albuquerque before. It’s unclear if it’s the same person, since we haven’t seen his face.

One witness said she saw the figure dancing around a grave. Another witness posted on Facebook that the cloaked figure was taken into custody for some reason, but APD has not confirmed that.

The San Pedro Mountains Mummy

Cecil Mayne and Frank Carr were prospecting in Wyoming’s San Pedro Mountains in October 1932. Hoping to find gold, they blasted through some rocks. Instead, they found a small hidden room containing a mummy. In fact, it was one of the strangest mummies ever discovered.

Seated in a cross-legged position, it was only 18 centimeters (7 in) high, and it would have measured no more than 36 centimeters (14 in) in a standing position. The mummy only weighed one-third of a kilogram (0.75 lb) and had an oddly shaped head. It didn’t look much like a himan, but an X-ray eventually determined that the mummy had human bones and was likely a miniature human being.

There was much debate about how old this unidentified human could have been when he was mummified. Some experts believed that he was an infant who suffered from anencephaly and looked like an adult because of his facial deformities. However, because he appeared to have adult vertebrae and teeth, others believed the mummified individual might have been up to 65 years old when he died. This stirred speculation that the mummy originated from the Nimeragir. According to folklore, the Nimeragir were a race of “little people” who lived in Wyoming many centuries ago, but their existence has never been verified. The mummy passed through various hands over the years but seemed to disappear after its last owner died during the 1980s.

Also posts really plan to get more consistent again, I had to take a little break for my mental health. And mod b has been on vacation.

First thing I’m posting is about this haunted hotel I’m currently staying the night at.

To be honest though so far it’s been uneventful. But then again I’ve been at a wedding. We barely got to our room now. We’re on the haunted floor too, I tried to get the room with the most activity but it was already taken.

I do hope I get something though. I stayed here as a kid and had an experience. It was cool.
