Is Elvis still at Graceland keeping an eye on his visitors? A Night Vision may be a clue. After all it is October, a time for Ghosts.

Graceland is Haunted ! 6/30/2003 9:03 AM



Last Saturday, 6/28/2003 9:03 AM, Dawn, Laura, Kristy and I paid a visit to Graceland. Our thoughts were about Elvis and his life rather than about ghosts.  We went on the mansion tour first and moments after we entered the TV room in the basement of the mansion I sensed there was at least one perhaps two ghosts in the room.  It was as if they were watching the morning news but also as if they were watching us from just beyond the rope that prevents the tourists from actually entering the area where the sofas are.

I sensed a presence in the kitchen of the mansion and also in the dark but quite large living room in the back of the mansion.  At the top of the stairs just after coming up from the basement I paused.  I sensed the presence beyond the people.  I saw the indoor waterfall.  "What is it?" I asked myself.  Then the large round shaped chair that was Lisa Marie Presley's favorite chair.  "Is it there?" I asked.  Slowly I turned and looked toward the larger sofa to my right on the south side of the room.  "There you are."  At that moment I heard someone tell me to get a move on, I think it was Laura.

They refused to allow us to go upstairs "out of respect for Elvis" since that was his private area and they said he never entertained guests up there.  That's where they stay, the ghosts of Graceland.  That's where they still remain private and away from the public.  It is just as well the people in charge of the tours keep the upstairs off limits to tourists.  But that's where I went in a dream last night.


DREAM of Graceland



I was laying in bed at home here when something began to call me.  I listened.  I looked in the direction of the voice, it was to the East.  I stood and in a moment found myself standing in the front area of the mansion, I'm guessing on the top floor.  I saw a large room to the south (my right as I stood facing the east.)  I had the strange feeling that's not exactly what it looks like up there.  There was something directly in front of me like a staircase that went up another floor higher.  To the right I heard voices of children. I looked and a small dark headed girl came running around the corner and stopped the moment she saw me.  I guess she must have been around 6 years old.  I leaned down and began to speak to her when another little girl about the same age with lighter colored hair and slightly taller came running around the corner from the same place the first little girl came.  She also stopped, became still and watched me like I was a stranger in her house.  And I'm guessing I was.  The dark headed girl said someone was in another area of the room, adults who were watching them.  She pointed, I stood and began to walk toward the north East to the left of the thing that looked like a staircase.  I say that because I didn't really look directly at the thing to focus on it.

As I passed along a smaller area past a door on my left I could hear women's voices in the room beyond the corner. I stopped, turned around and faced East.  There was something there, something calling to me, but who or what was it? Where was it coming from? It was just a feeling drawing me to it. It was the same feeling I sensed as I lay in my own bed before being pulled back to the Graceland mansion.

There I could see the front of the building, like a window at the top of the big door downstairs.  To the left of the window was the two little girls watching me.  To my right was a door leading into a room.  That's where the thing was that was pulling me.  I went into the room. It was a bedroom, nothing fancy at all, in fact quite basic.  (Everything I saw in the Graceland mansion now is elaborate.) It was not there. I looked and saw another door in the north wall.  This one was narrow.  I opened it and went into an even smaller bedroom.

Again everything quite basic.  The single bed was covered with a white bedspread.  There was something on the floor in the north west corner of the room that held water and had a long odd looking top on it.  Perhaps it was a humidifier or vaporizer.  I could see where the water had spilled onto the carpet perhaps more than once since the thing had been placed there.

In the southwest corner of the room was an oldish wooden desk with a wooden chair.  Between the water thing on the floor and the desk was something rectangular like a picture or a window.  I looked around the simple room. I felt the presence was there but moving around me, watching me.  I sat down upon the bed and waited.  In a few moments it touched me causing me to experience a strange reaction.  I stood then became dizzy for a moment. I looked around the room and then saw the glowing form floating between me and the north wall at the foot of the bed.  "It's you who called me?" I asked.  It touched me again giving me the same feeling it had before but this time the dizzy feeling was not as strong.  The entity was trying to communicate with me but for some reason it did not speak.

Someone was sick in this room.  Someone may have died in this room.  I don't know who it was or who the entity was who was trying to communicate with me.  (Please understand that in dreams and night visions of different types the rooms themselves may not be represented as the human eye would see them but rather showing symbols intended to convey a message to the person/dreamer observing them.  The narrow door would then represent a restriction to that room or from that room or both.  Meaning only certain people were allowed in and or out of the room.)

The entity was trying to tell me something that it considered important.  I saw a man sized form glowing but there were no features that I could recognize so as to know who the entity was.

I stood looking at the glowing form for a few moments until it faded away then I walked to the narrow door once again and looked back to see the form was gone. 

I went out the door and through the next bedroom.  The fact there were two bedrooms one after another may also be symbolic since I cannot imagine anything in the Graceland mansion being deliberately constructed to look like this.  This one was larger than the last one and had a king size bed in it.

I went out the door into the place I had been before.  The little girls were now playing in the south end of the building.  I could hear the women speaking in the east area.  I turned and walked to another open door and entered to find a younger women working at something in the east area of the large room.  A big table or something of that basic appearance ran along a few feet from the wall.  There was something on the wall. In fact it almost appeared like a kitchen area.  There was another window against the wall near where the younger woman was working.  At the far end of the table like thing was an older shorter woman with white hair.  She was seated in a rocking chair.

I stood with my arms in front of me clasping my hands and waiting silently waiting for the women to notice me. I did not want to appear threatening at all but waited until the older woman looked up and saw me.  She nodded her head for me to approach.  The younger woman watched as I passed near her.

When I was standing near the older woman she asked me who I was and how I came to be there among them.  I told her I was at home and was transported there by an entity within the building.  I pointed in the direction of the little room I had been in previously.  She said "You were called and brought here then?"  And I said "Yes, I was. Someone here seems to want to say something to me.  Perhaps to deliver a message."  She nodded her head.  I began to tell her what I had experienced in that room.  Again she nodded her head.  She knew who the spirit was and why it had called me.  She acknowledged this to me and the fact that someone one had been sick in that room but did not give much for details so that I might understand why I had been brought here.
EOD

This is a very high-level informative night vision.  It is not what I consider a normal dream.  It contains real information.  It is a message from the supernatural realm.  I think the older woman with the white hair was Elvis's mother.  I think she's still there.  I don't know who the two little girls were or who the younger woman was.
