Everyone has that supernatural side of them that just lives off of the morbid curiosity that occult topics provide them. No matter where you go in the United States, you are bound to find some little town or village that has a ghost story or two. So if you live near or in these areas of Florida, you might want to check out these chilling haunted towns.

The Cuban Club - Tampa, Florida

This one is pretty iconic. Built back in the early Twentieth Century, this building was the place to be in Tampa. But as great as the building is, there have been more than one death connected to the edifice. In one case, an actor committed suicide, in another, a young boy drowned in the pool, and finally, there was a case in which one board member murdered another. Some say that when you visit The Cuban Club, you can see a woman in a white dress and hear the young boy’s soul still crying.

May-Stringer House - Brooksville, Florida

Now a museum, this house picks up a lot of traffic around the time of Halloween. According to locals, entering the house can result in feeling random cold spots, whispers, and the occasional sound of children's laughter. Many believe it to be the ghost of a little girl screaming out for the mother she never knew, and the sight has some people so spooked they will not bring their own children near it.

Kenilworth Lodge - Sebring, Florida

There is something about hotels that always make them the most haunted places in the United States. Residents who have stayed at the lodge claim that an eerie feeling stirs throughout the entire area. Doors and drawers have been reported more than once to have been opening and closing on their own, and one guest heard a voice speaking just outside his door one night. Many believe it to be the ghost of a man who died at the hotel in the 1950s, but who knows, there may be more than one ghost at this lodge.

Haunted Places In Saint Augustine

St. Augustine, Florida, is the oldest city in the United States. Settled by the Spanish long before the formation of the US, the city's lengthy history means it has its fair share of paranormal activity. Ghosts and haunted locations are just as prevalent there as anywhere else in the country.

Not just haunted but still in use, the St. Augustine Lighthouse is home to whispers and ghosts. During the building's construction, three girls died, and some insist their spirits still lurk within the lighthouse. Haunted tours are available for the brave and the curious.

The Spanish Military Hospital Museum is another such place. Built upon the grounds that once housed the Spanish military hospital from the 1700s, the building's location has seen its fair share of death and misery. It is little wonder that those who died in such agony would continue to roam the land as ghosts.

St. Francis Inn, an otherwise unassuming bed and breakfast, is rumored to have a ghost lurking about Room #6…

The Legend Of Sea Creatures

All the sea animals that you know of, what would be the most terrifying to you? Perhaps a deadly shark or an enormous blue whale? What if there was something that would put both of those options to shame?

Through Greek Mythology, Biblical references, and folklore, there have been amazing legends of sea creatures. Legends that not only caused fear in sailors but also the people who heard such tales. With each story that passed on, the fear only grew.

If you have an itch for history and mythology, then these three legends will be to your liking:

1. Charybdis: Greek Origin - Charybdis is known in Greek Mythology and was the daughter of Poseidon. Legend has it, her job was to flood dry land (like tides) as commanded by her father.

Charybdis was known to cause havoc on sailors, warriors, and others whenever people w…

Interpretations Of Dreams

Dreaming is a natural part of the sleep process and dream interpretation has been subject to wide discussion throughout the Centuries in various Cultures.
Though History shows that much has been related to dreaming, science qualifies it as a natural process of the brain, by reorganizing our neural processes and as much as we can take this as a simple and plain explanation, little is to be said about dream interpretations.
A dream can often be related to the fear of something, These are usually qualified as nightmares. They put us or the ones close to us in scenarios of danger, loss, injury or paranormal events. They are linked to our deepest fears and taboos, our worse imaginable scenarios. Many times we may not even be aware that we're deeply afraid of something until we experience it in a dream but it is the way the brain expresses the subconscious fears that live within us. 
A dream can also be related to a repressed feeling or memory.  It's common to meet up with people t…
