The Stanley Hotel

Written by
The Stanley Hotel The Stanley Hotel

We recently celebrated Kristine’s birthday.  It was a milestone birthday and I hoped to do something unexpected and memorable.  After deciding where we would be going, I kept it a secret.  She tried to guess and asked questions.  “Were we leaving the state?  What clothes should I bring? What direction would we be traveling and how long would we be on the road?”  Two days prior to her special day, she asked, “Are we going to The Stanley Hotel?”  She was shocked when I told her, Yes!

Kristine is fond of pointing out that I had never taken her to Estes Park during the years we called Colorado home.  Now we can scratch that one off the list.  Estes Park is beautiful.  We loved the town, the people and how it sits adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park.  We especially loved The Stanley Hotel… even after spending two nights there.

Most folks go to The Stanley because it’s famous and is supposedly haunted.  Stephen King did spend one night there in room 217 and had an “alcohol induced nightmare,” that was the genesis of his famous book The Shining, as they told us on the tours.  We took the day and the night tour knowing we’d get something different from each since the day tour is more historical and the night is spiritual.  Both tours were amazing and left us feeling a sense of awe and appreciation for not only The Stanley but the man who built it.

Freelan Oscar Stanley (1849-1940) had the Stanley Hotel built and completed in 1904. Before that his identical twin brother Francis Edgar Stanley and he developed the Stanley Steamer car, first built in 1897 and manufactured from 1901 to 1924.  Freelan was also a master craftsman with wood, even carving violins and teaching himself how to play.  Either he is a genius and or very old soul.

To see and tour The Stanley Hotel is an exercise in being not only impressed, but in admiration.  After being told he had a few short months to live and that he might as well go someplace beautiful to spend his dying days, coming to Estes Park and having a complete recovery from consumption (a wasting away of the body especially from tuberculosis of the lungs), he lovingly built the hotel after realizing his home was too small to accommodate their many visitors.  More than that, he was a gentleman that treated everyone fairly, especially the townspeople.  We were told that the environment he created on the grounds and within the hotel was so fun and loving that everyone loved being there, especially the children. 

It has been written in numerous books that we can manifest our own version of heaven on the other side, and it is also said that the veil is very thin between us here in the physical world and our friends and family in the non-physical world.  With that said, it is absolutely no wonder at all of the reports from guests at The Stanley of hearing small children playing on the 4th floor, because back in the early 1900’s, that is exactly what they did.  I believe that when they transitioned, the version of heaven they created was the 4th floor of The Stanley where they play on occasion still today.  All I felt at The Stanley was LOVE and a great appreciation for all that created this beautiful place, in a very beautiful part of the world.

During an evening tour our guide discussed how spirits have made contact with others at the hotel.  His name was Travis and as we began the tour standing in what originally was a room with six pool tables, he explained how spirit makes contact.  He shared that

  • Spirits can be quite adept at manipulating electricity to make their presence known and he shared examples of how they had done so at The Stanley
  • At times when guests have either looked in mirrors or took pictures of themselves in mirrors, sometimes spirits were visible with them.
  • Faraday cages / chambers are used to enhance ours and spirits ability to connect with each other.

As we exited the “pool hall”, Kristine and I pulled him aside and congratulated him for his accuracy and thoroughness in relating the above.  We explained how and why we could validate his comments relating to spirit as we discussed Helping Parents Heal and Quinton.  He lit up at the validation and with the knowledge that this is really how it works.  As we spoke he mentioned his wife transitioned to the other side and she had visited him as well. 

Such divine knowledge.  While it isn’t fair in any sense of the word of how we learned it, it is important to share with everyone so they may KNOW without having to go through what so many of us have gone through to LEARN.  There is no death; there is only a crossing over a threshold.

Blessings!
