Psychic Weekend with JMarie

Saturday, August 18th and Sunday, August 19th
PRIVATE READINGS AND SPOT OF TEA WITH JMARIE SOLD OUT

Throughout childhood JMarie was always searching for a connection with her own mother who was on Spirit side. Though her gifts were there, it wasn’t until many years later when her awakening would begin after some unexpected life changes.

She herself felt compelled to seek out a medium, allowing her to hear those messages she had always longed for from her mother, that would forever change her life. This leading her to find her renewed faith, spirituality and development of her own Spiritual gifts.

Through her development for the past few years, she has found that she not only connects with your loved ones, but works with guides, angels and past lives as well. She finds that the Divine aids her throughout her readings, bringing in and connecting with the Link of Love.

To give you an overview of JMarie, she is an Evidential Spiritual Psychic Medium, Reiki Practitioner, and an Ordained Minister. As she connects with the link of love, using evidence for validation, she finds that the evidence can be anything from birthdays, personalities, memories, names, remote viewing and more. All depending on the connection and link I have with your particular loved one(s) from the Spirit side of life.

In every sitting/reading, the process is the same, yet different. There are several ways a person in Spirit can communicate, and it’s all about how your loved one(s) feel it’s easier to connect with me. Whether that is seeing, hearing, feeling, etc.

The process of Mediumship / Psychism is like a puzzle, one that is filled with smiles, tears, love, memories, and more as we place the pieces together throughout your sitting/reading. She offers a unique style of card reading to accompany psychism, connecting with your loved ones, guides, and more. She enjoys using Reiki Energy if Spirit directs us to do so, to help in balancing your energy, centering, clearing of chakras, aura, and aiding in the healing of ailments and uses the energy when viewing and/or clearing past lives and more.

She finds that in her readings, it’s a moment to recreate a memory, a moment…… Bringing your loved ones to sit with you once again.

JMarie will be coming to Belle Grove Plantation for two days of Private Readings and a Group Session. Due to popular demand, we have set all private readings at 30 minutes and will only have one person in the session at a time. The Group Session will be one hour.

National Ghost Hunting Weekend with Argos Paranormal

Friday, September 28th and Saturday, September 29th
7:00pm to 3:00am

“A Haunting is History Wishing to be Heard.”
Motto of Haunted Journey

On Saturday, September 29th from 7pm to 3am, the world will unite as one to tell its historic story through the haunted. Us as we take part in the National Ghost Hunting Day’s “Worlds Larger Ghost Hunt”. Come be a part of this history making night at Belle Grove Plantation, one of the Most Haunted Plantation in Virginia.

National Ghost Hunting Day was founded in July 2016 by Haunted Journeys and is held on the last Saturday of each September. It noble intention is to globally observe the most haunted properties in the world while recognizing the novice, curious, experts and professionals that investigate paranormal activity in these iconic locations.

National Ghost Hunting Day is an event that promotes an annual Worlds Largest Ghost Hunt. This event serves as the engine to encourage Paranormal Research including skills and techniques used in Paranormal Investigation, Public Education and Historic Preservation of these Historic Sites. Over 150 Paranormal Teams will investigate these historic sites during this event.
Through this event, Haunted Journey will shine a spotlight on historic sites. The proceeds raised by these locations will return 100% to the historic site for preservation.

Is Belle Grove Plantation Haunted?

Many people and paranormal teams have tried to answer these questions. Even the SyFy Channel’s Ghost Hunters has investigated. All that come away have the same answer . . . there is something there.

The Plantation dates back to 1670 where is started as a 1000 acres tobacco farm. Birthplace of President James Madison and home to his mother’s family, the Conways, this plantation has seen the making of America from the beginning. Lifetimes of happiness and tragedy would leave a lasting impression on this historic property.

Ghostly full-bodies apparitions of former families, slaves and soldiers have been seen by many guests at Belle Grove Plantation. Former Slaves haunt the basement and historic Summer Kitchen. Held as a Union Headquarter from 1861 to the end of the American Civil War, many Union Soldiers have been seen both inside and outside on the grounds.

Overnight Guest have spoken of their encounters with two ghostly cats. From curling up on the bed with them at night, brushes against their legs, soft meowing and darting past them making our guest belief that they are real.

Of the 80 ghostly residence, none is more popular and known than our small boy ghost, “Jacob”. Known to move items, peep at guests from doorways, bounce balls up and down the hallway and library, “Jacob” has even spoke to us through EVP (electronic voice phenomena) telling us that he is just 5 years old.

Paranormal activity such as orbs, shadow figures, apparitions, disembodied voices, draining batteries of flashlights, cell phones and camera are just a few things you can expect when ghost hunting at Belle Grove. Most that come to find out, left with stories to tell for years.

Question is – Are you up to the challenge?

Halloween Ghost Hunting with Argos Paranormal

Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th
7:00pm to 3:00am

#1 Most Haunted Plantation, with exclusive access to the most haunted areas!

The Belle Grove Plantation is a location that both chills the bone and pleases the eye. As featured on SyFy’s Ghost Hunters, over three hundred years of rich history has left a haunting and eerie impression on the old plantation and the spirits of generations past still linger within the walls waiting to tell you their stories.

The property itself dates back to the late 1600’s where a tobacco plantation occupied approximately 1000 acres. Our fourth President, James Madison, Jr. was born on Belle Grove plantation and his mother’s family owned the property for many years. The land and current mansion have laid witness to the forging and growth of a nation from the Colonies to the American Revolution to the Civil War and beyond. There should be no surprise that the blood spilled upon the earth and the civil uprising would leave a lasting impression. But probably the most notable hauntings are those of the families who lived, loved and died on the land.

Full-bodied apparitions of Union Soldiers guarding the entrance, walking the grounds and lurking in the hallways have been witnessed by many guests and visitors. The Union Army used several plantations in the area as Headquarters, commandeering the homes from their Confederate owners. Due to the lack of bullet holes and the fact it wasn’t burned to the ground and that the Turner family relocated suggests that Belle Grove Plantation may have been one of these locations.

Guests have also seen and interacted with at least two ghost cats. Their vocal cries, brushing past people’s legs and even curling up on the pillow beside the guests as they sleep at night. The phantom felines are still seeking someone to scratch their ears.

The mischievous Jacob is a spirit of a small boy that many people have encountered. He likes to nick items from the kitchen, bounce balls up and down the hallway whilst guests are sleeping and hide around the corners. There have been EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of the young boy by several paranormal investigators. Is he just looking for a good time? Perhaps you’d like to engage in a game of hide-and-seek with him!
Orbs, light anomalies, shadow figures, full-blown apparitions, lights turning on of their own volition, phantom whistling, disembodied voices—if you’re ready to experience a crossroads of spirits then the Belle Grove Plantation is waiting for you. The only question remains—are you brave enough to do a lone vigil with the Union Soldiers standing guard over the property?
