Rich in history, there are many ghosts in California. Take the California Gold Rush. Many ghosts can be found near the area where gold was discovered in Coloma, located outside of Sacramento including the Vineyard House and the Man Lee and Wah Hop Stores.
San Francisco has numerous haunted locations. One of the best known is Alcatraz Island, a former prison. Another is China Town. Both locations offer ghost tours. A historic location in central California is that of Calico Ghost Town which is said to have its fair share of spirits.
There is also the well known haunted Toys R Us in Sunnyvale. Even the sleepy little town of Coalinga has its own ghost which hangs around the town's museum. Visiting San Juan Capistrano? Look for the ghost of a friar.
Southern California also has more than enough ghosts to keep ghost enthusiasts busy. From the haunted Hollywood Forever Cemetery to the Whaley House in San Diego, along with the Queen Mary in Long Beach which features paranormal and ghosts tours, there are many ghosts to be found in the Golden State.

Interested in developing your psychic abilities? The state of California is a hot bed for paranormal activity. With its many historical sites, there are numerous opportunities to learn and practice the psychic art of psychometry. This is when a person can hold an object in their hand or touch a building and receive psychic images.
From Old Sacramento, to the historical buildings of San Francisco, haunted Hollywood locations and numerous San Diego ghostly locations, there are many places in which to practice psychometry. The first step in to find a historical building. Don’t do any research in advance. You want your mind to be clear of any information.
The next step is to close your eyes, take some deep, cleansing breaths and place your hands on the building. Pay attention to any thoughts or images that come to mind. Being that what you are touching is historical, check with the locals to find out if what you are experiencing is real. Odds are, if you are getting something from the location, then it is real, such as images of something that has occurred in the past.
Psychometry is a great way to help develop psychic skills and with all of the historical and haunted locations in California, it’s a great way to help develop your intuition.
