The Conjuring: facts & the fallout, one year later.

On the anniversary of the release of The Conjuring, (which is one of my picks for the 13 most haunting films for ghost story lovers,) I’m noticing some internet buzz about the aftermath of its production and its subsequent popularity. For fans of The Amityville Horror, this is a familiar scenario. In short, the current owners of the home are asserting that their lives have been turned upside down by the fallout from the film. There has been trespassing and vandalism, not only at the allegedly haunted house, but also at the grave site of  a local woman.

For those of you who are not ardent followers of developments in the paranormal world, I’ll provide a little cheat sheet, so you know who all these real-life people are.

Making Contact With “The Dead”

ghostsMany people write in to ask me about making contact with loved ones who have crossed into spirit and though I’ve written other posts about it, I thought I’d write another in the hopes that this one might offer what the others perhaps did not. But before I get into that, many of you might wonder how it is that I am an authority on the subject. Well here’s the best answer I can give: I’m not. BUT, I do make contact with the spirit world and I have wonderful experiences when doing so! It is those experiences that I share. Well, that and what spirit moves me to write! (the creation of anything…such as this blog post…is an interaction with spirit!). I am not a medium in the same way that the late Sylvia Brown was a medium, nor am I anything near as talented as the Long Island…

Pseudoscience and Paranormal Research

I completely agree with Karl on this issue of pseudoscience and science. Please enjoy this reblog.

I don’t want to get too deep into this issue at the moment, as I think there will be other article and blog opportunities in the future to explore this more deeply, but I did want to write a quick response to an article I read recently on the Huffington Post that demanded a bit of thought longer than 140 characters.

For the past couple months, I’ve been following the Society for Psychical Research Twitter account, which retweets and shares a number of fascinating articles and stories about all aspects of current ESP research, whether these articles be positive or negative. Today as I was browsing the tweeter, I came across a really interesting article about Pseudoscience and how it corresponds to paranormal research, written by Stafford Betty. Normally, “pseudoscience” is a term thrown around by skeptics to demean research into “paranormal” or anomalous phenomena. And it bothers…

I Can Feel Someone Watching Me!

•May 25, 2014 • 4 Comments

Paranormalogistically:

What an informative and beautiful post :-) I just had to share.

Originally posted on GhostlyDramas:

Ghost Trouble eyesI get a lot of comments from people who say that they feel like someone is watching them. Since they know there is no one else around, they are pretty sure the feeling is coming from a ghost, and it freaks them out, makes them uneasy and anxious…and for some, it terrifies them. I know the feeling…been there and done that a time or two or a thousand! It’s not a good feeling. Seriously, it’s bad enough to have someone watching us when we can see them watching us, but to have “someone” watching us that we can’t see? Now that is a spooky, please-make-it-stop kind of uncomfortable. A big part of that fear is the unknown factors. Who is it? WHAT is it? What do they want? Are they going to attack me? Possess me? Do they watch me during private moments when I don’t want anyone watching me?

Is One Coast More Haunted Than The Other?

Paranormalogistically:

What are your thoughts on this? I’m going with the East coast but I may have some bias because that’s where I live.

We’re going to take a break from research and academic-y posts and I would like to share something with you that’s been on my mind. Since moving here to Raleigh, NC from San Diego, CA in June of 2013, I’ve been noticing that I experience much more paranormal activity on the east coast. My team here in the “City of Oaks” has nearly double the amount of cases and potential leads than the team in San Diego. Not only in case numbers, but I’ve noticed that the availability of haunted locations to investigate is far greater than the west coast.

The answers can be chalked up to the idea that there’s more history on the east coast than the west coast. But in order to validate that assumption, we have to account for the history and the timeline of both coasts. And of course, that would…

The Cult of the Banshee, a supernatural tale for St Patrick’s Day

Do you believe in the supernatural? Do you accept that there is something unseen in ourselves, in our thoughts, in our inner consciousness, which Nature will not allow us to entirely ignore?

With some the supernatural takes the form of luck, of a blind belief in Fate, while the particular brand of others is ghosts pure and simple. Between those two, luck and ghosts, there is a wide range of speculation and assertion.

Without doubt, the supernatural exists to a large extent in the imagination. I do not say that it exists only or entirely in the imagination, but I do consider that the imagination has a great influence upon the existence of the supernatural. A highly strung, nervous, imaginative temperament is more susceptible to, and receptive of the supernatural; it is what I may term a good medium; it catches and retains a sensation without attempting or wishing to…

Paranomalous Events

•February 7, 2014 • 6 Comments

I had several unusual, possibly paranormal events occur in my home last month. I can go for weeks or even months and never experience anything anomalous or even slightly strange in my house, and then things will happen in waves. Early January, as I was standing at the sink doing dishes, I dropped a piece of food on the floor and automatically looked down to my left to see if my dog, Ounce, had snatched the bit up. She had but the thing is, she has been dead for 18 years and had been my constant companion for the almost 16 years she had on this earth. I haven’t heard her toenails on the hardwood floors or her unique voice in many years but that day, as present as she ever was in life, waiting for a handout, she stood for a brief second. It was as awesome and beautiful as it was sad to the point of heart wrenching.

Around this time there were also some unusual noises that would take place in the kitchen behind me on and off as I worked at the sink. I could find no sign of anything that could have created those noises, those sounds of dishware being slid around. So…about a week after the visit from my beloved deceased pet yet another incident. As I was standing in the living room looking out the window, a presence whooshed by me with enough force that I felt the energy and saw it as a vaguely human shaped blur a few inches shorter than me. It made me take a step back and go WTF was that! No fear, just surprise. There have been the occasional disembodied voices, which I can never quite make out what is being said even though some are quite loud. Now before I tell you the rest I have to tell you that we collect antiques, rustic and prehistoric items well as have a cabinet full of crystals and stones and such. So hey…any damn thing could be here or passing through.

Some of the collection.

Some of the collection.

In the photos below, you can see where three weeks ago these circles or signs appeared on my shamefully dirty windows. You can only see them in a certain light and they are very difficult to photograph.

Anomalous event?

Anomalous event?

What is it?!

What is it?!

Last month sometime I read a piece with a photo of a similar image only it was much more detailed than my circles. I was as baffled as the authors were and thought it may have been a magnetic anomaly of some kind or an electrostatic charge. I was floored to find these on my very own windows!! Does anyone out there know what is going on? They appeared on my windows about two weeks after I read that article. Here is a link to that article.

http://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2154&category=Environment

That is another point to consider. I spend all of my free time (and I do mean all) researching all things paranomalous, all things universal and all things betwixt and between. It is a deeply ingrained part of who I am and that will never change. Does that then too…make me another source of energy for these already energetic entities? Moving on.

One morning between 5:30 to 7:30 am, three distinctly different things happened in a row. Firstly, from where I was sitting on the couch I could see out the kitchen sliding glass door. This tall black figure appeared outside the door and gone several times…always at least as tall as the door but thin. The wall phone shown here is not hooked up and I have not heard these bells in months. This morning they would randomly gently ding as if it was trying to ring.

Not hooked up so...

Not hooked up so…

I was ready to dismiss one as imagination and the other as odd but not paranormal and then one last incident startled me. As I moved to open a sliding door where I feed the birds every morning, the rocker recliner a couple feet away turned away from me by around 3 inches. I just shook my head because that chair has never moved by itself and had no apparent reason to do so this time. The floor is stable and the chair itself takes some force to move. I couldn’t recreate it or explain it. This doesn’t even include the sprinkling of “out of the corner of the eye” type sightings.

So why am I even telling you about all of it? I guess just because it was a very active January at my place and I’m the only one who experiences these things in my home. And I just felt like telling somebody, which is rare because I don’t usually say much…even on social media…I just post the stories and let people come to their own conclusions mostly. I’m more of an archivist than a conversationalist. So this post is a bit more personal than I usually get but I had to get it out, so there you go. Just to be clear, I am not saying all of these incidents were paranormal in nature. I am saying that I believe most of them were until I can prove otherwise. Since these are all personal experiences except the window dust circles (what the heck are they?!?), there is no way to prove they happened or not.

So far February has been uneventful paranormalogistically and that could go on for weeks. Or I could find out today that I misplaced my current book, hand lotion, oven mitt…only to find it later exactly where I left it.
