Haunted Rooms at the Anniversary Inn in Boise, ID

The Anniversary Inn in Boise, Idaho by JVBIn Boise, Idaho, there is a hotel that I stayed at during one of the haunting investigations. It is called The Anniversary Inn.

It is an absolutely gorgeous hotel and the rooms are completely decked out to the max! We stayed in the Sleeping Beauty suite. Long story as to why, but it was kind of an inside joke based on my hair. Any way, one of the first things that I generally do whenever I am checking into a hotel is go down my little checklist for the room. It drives my husband crazy, but at least I know I can sleep from completing it. My list includes checking the bed sheets to make sure they are truly clean (no hair or ickies on them), check the bathroom to make sure it’s clean (no nasties), and finally make sure that there aren’t any ghosts! You have NO idea how hard it is for me to get any real sleep when I’m staying in a haunted room…and believe me it has happened!

When we went into our suite, all I can say is AMAZING! Clean sheets, no hair or ickies, no nasties, and (thanks to Kika who booked the room for us) there were even chocolates on the table, a bottle of sparkling cider, and a fridge full of cheesecake and chocolate covered strawberries! Love her! Even the huge jetted bathtub had a waterfall as a shower! So to say the least, the room was fantastic! We checked in, dropped off our stuff and then headed out for our investigation. (For all of the juicy details on how the investigation went…See my prior blog – Haunting Investigation in Boise at the Idaho State Penitentiary )

When we returned to the hotel after the haunting investigation we slept like babies. We slept in, had breakfast in bed and then headed downstairs to check out. While we were heading to the counter, we ran into Kika, who had been telling the gals at the front desk about how I was able to see spirits. So they asked me if I could take a look at a few rooms in the hotel. We had some time before our flight, so I did.

First we headed to a room that was under renovation, Room #17 – the Red Rock Canyon room. I didn’t sense a whole lot other than the residual energy of an older man that had a heart attack. But that was residual, not a live haunting.

Anniversary Inn - The RitzNext we headed downstairs to Room #5 – The Ritz. When I walked in the room I was met by the spirit of a nice older woman. She informed me that she had been very depressed because she was tired of being alone. So she decided to get a room at the inn. She settled in and then took a bunch of pills and ended her life. It was so sad. We talked for a little bit. She had me tell the gals at the hotel that she really liked how they had remodeled the room. She loved the sparklies!

Anniversary Inn - Sun Valley RoomThen we moved on to the next room, Room #34 – the Sun Valley room. Apparently the gals said that they had some weird stuff that they had felt from that room. The nice thing is that, though there was an older gentleman’s spirit in the room, I guess he only occasionally used the room. He said that he had been in the area since long before the hotel was there and that he really liked the style of the room!

When we finished with those rooms, the gals from the hotel staff stopped and asked if we could check out two more rooms that were right next to each other. Rooms #28 & #29 – both were Swiss Family Robinson rooms. It caught me a little off guard because these rooms were just two doors down from the room we stayed in. One of the gals was telling us on the way up to the rooms that she hadn’t had anything happen to her in #28, but that room #29 gave her the heeby jeebies. Part of the reason that I don’t like to know anything in advance about anything I am investigating is because I don’t want to have any preconceived ideas before going into a location. As we were walking up there I told her, “Let’s check out #28 first.” Now that I was somewhat figuring that room #29 was going to have all of the action, I was seriously caught off guard when I walked into room #28!

Anniversary Inn - Swiss Family Robinson #28Being that it was the Swiss Family Robinson room, it had been themed off of a large tree with branches going out across the room and to the ceiling. There was one very large branch that was going across the room from the main tree trunk. As soon as we entered the room I was immediately met with the image of the spirit of a man hanging and swinging from the large branch. So I jumped back and the first thing out of my mouth was, “Well, someone DEFINITELY died in this room. It was a male that hung himself.” The gals were shocked, because it was the next room over that they had more weird feelings from, and yet there he was! They actually had to call one of the old managers of the Inn to verify what had happened, because they didn’t even have any knowledge of someone having hung themselves in that room. She indeed verified that was exactly what had happened years before and that it had happened in that room. If you are wondering about what happened in room #29, not much lol! The room was beautiful, but not haunted.

So if you are looking for an exciting nights stay in a haunted room, I highly suggest the haunted rooms at The Anniversary Inn. Otherwise, their other rooms are amazing, beautiful and as far as I know ghost free!

On another note, I would like to say thank you to the staff for such a wonderful experience and stay at their hotel. And thank you for asking me and giving me permission to write this blog. Also, thank you to the awesome paranormal investigators, Kika and Scott (S.P.I.G.) and Becky and Grace (S.L.A.S.H)

Definition of a Medium

Jennifer Von Behren Medium & Master Healer

I am someone that society classifies as a “medium”, but just like most of us, I am more than just a medium. This is information that I channeled directly from source during one of my many late night spontaneous downloads.

Definition of a Medium: a person who is advanced in the art of communications at a level of skill or ability that naturally supersedes that of most individuals. It is an individual with a “gift” only in the sense that the portion of the brain that controls these “gifts” has been formed in a way that is more developed, similar to that of an individual who is advanced with the skill or ability to paint, do complex mathematical equations, or someone that can look at a blank spot of land and develops an immense 30 story building that is an architectural feat of wonderment. For an individual who is not naturally capable of any of these skills (abilities) it is absolutely amazing to the rest of us that what they did is possible. For those with the unique and natural skills to do these things, it is hard to imagine a life where people don’t see things like we do. Just like with any skill, it is always helpful to have someone that can teach you how to advance your skills so that you can use them faster and more efficiently. On a rare occasion there are people born with phenomenal natural skills (abilities) that seem to need little to no guidance from others to practice their skills with fluency. These are generally the individuals we call “game changers” The hypothetical “Da Vinci’s” of there skill.

I guarantee you that if you were to ask someone with these skills, say a “medium” what they do…the answer would most likely be “I’m a medium”, but their actual definition of what they do could vary. One such example could be, “I communicate with individuals on a different energetic plain in which most 5th sensory abilities are unable to perceive. My heightened “6th sensory” abilities allow my brain to perceive and translate some or most of the energetic and emotional frequencies they are emitting, thus allowing me to translate their messages (what they are communicating) as though I had adjusted a radio dial in my brain to tune into their unique energetic signals and was translating from Greek to English.”

Just like with any art, there are a multitude of people who attempt to master an ability. Some are able to do this with school or a teacher who helps them to advance. Some just aren’t meant to do that particular skill for anything more than just a hobby. From personal experience, if you were to see a Van Gogh painting on a wall next to a stick figure attempt at art that I could muster up (painfully), on a wall next to each other…I can guarantee you which one you would say was more gifted with painting! That is why God has blessed us each with uniquely built brains that give us skills and abilities that are just as unique. The key is to discover these abilities within ourselves so that we can follow our skills and our passions to advance ourselves in a way that is unique from others, just as we are unique from others.

The ironic part of the whole religiously held perspective on “mediums” is that they are essentially shunning God’s own creation! It’s not like most truly real “mediums” actually want to call themselves that, but in society people like to, and realistically need, to assign names to physically attach our brains to something/someone. For example: My name is Jennifer Von Behren, so when someone goes to speak about me they can use my name as a way to physically describe who they are speaking of, in a way you can wrap your mind around it. Just as a term can hold that same merit. “medium” is just a conveniently short physical assignment of a word that best describes, based on our societal attachment of perceptions of the term, what a person may have the skills or abilities to do in some sort of sense granted with no defined boundaries, thus leaving a wide array of variation to fill in the blanks of what that unique person actually does. Just as if you called someone an architect or painter. Yes that gives us a broad generic term to attach to them, but stop and think about it. Then take the time to really discover what that person’s unique skills and abilities truly are under their generic categorization.
