Hey, Paranormal Filler readers!
So, we’re still working with an interesting collection of energies from the Full Moon last week- AND the Solar Eclipse back in August. I’d take the time to explain but people usually get that far off look in their eyes and are probably thinking about what they want for lunch, whenever I do. Suffice it to say, these things all tie together pretty well. Insert something something as above, so below- universe as tapestry, you get the idea.
Hey out there-
I have yet to decide if I will go ahead and do the sign by sign zodiac horoscopes- though I have a good time writing them, I tend to think going beyond that Sun sign is important. We’ll see. I know people enjoy those, so feel free to let me know if that’s something you’d like to see.
When considering matters of the afterlife, Do we see our current culture steering toward horror or harmony? While observing the current plethora of saturating paranormal soup du jour, Why not take a moment to divulge on levels of death. Gruesome or groovy you decide.
Okay you are dead, please proceed to your proper level.
What does $1,237.33 US dollars, 39 people, and two ghosts have in common? Well, the long and the short of it is people were swindled out of their money by a ghost promising treasure and access to a rare elixir.
In the May 8, 1815 edition of the Kentucky Gazette, appeared an item from The Philadelphia Democratic Press, about the case of Commonwealth v. John Dady. Mr. Dady was indicted and convicted of conspiracy to cheat.
Do you believe empathy is a real phenomena? While the purest form of the word simply means “showing an ability to understand and share the feelings of another “, in the paranormal world we take that definition further to claim that people can sometimes feel the emotions and personal energies of both the dead and the living at a psychic and physical level.
I can’t count the number of people that I have interviewed over the years that lay claim to some form of empathic ability. I personally claim the ability to “tune-in” or open my mind up when I am doing paranormal work so that ghosts can tell me their story at some energetic level. My “gift” (if you believe in such things) has also always allowed me to block these energies once I identify them at least in general terms.
I thought, that having spent the past 25-plus years advocating, promoting, encouraging and educating about the prevention of HIV, and how important protection is, surely the subject of protection and the paranormal wouldn’t be very complex, right? Well was I wrong!
I found during my research on this subject that protection within the world of the paranormal takes on a whole new meaning, one filled with wide-ranging theories and perspectives. The rites and rituals practiced by investigators are as varied as the investigators themselves. Read more
Do you have a ritual that you perform every New Year’s Day?
I think most people have some ritual associated with the holiday whether they realize it or not. Many of us don’t even know why we do them…we just always have.
My wife and I have practiced some silly ritual every year since we have been together I think. The first that I remember was that on New Year’s Day you are supposed to do at least one important activity that you want to make sure you do all year. Later we picked up that one should eat cabbage. Guess what has been included in every New Year’s Day dinner since?
Some years, to insure our happiness and financial prosperity, we put the “pedal to the metal” and go all out. Most years we just sort of bounce around the list.
By now everyone has seen a certain photo taken at an accident scene that has been making its rounds.
I thought I would throw my own analysis into the mix.
My own method of breaking down a “ghost picture” involves a rather amateurish process of looking at what makes up the “ghost”, identifying known elements, and then deciding if the “ghost” exists without those identifiable elements.
I am NOT a professional photographer. I just like looking at details. I also have the advantage of having a 55-inch high-resolution television screen that I use as a computer monitor when I look at stuff.
My dreams have taken an odd turn and seem a little more vivid as of late. I managed to make some notes on one of them and this is what I remember.
A couple of nights ago, this dream involved me being at a radio station with some “colleagues” to be interviewed about The Scarefest, a horror and paranormal convention that I am a part of.
We have all heard the question “is it haunted?” Clients want to know our opinion in the field. Someone on a television gives his or her opinion weekly. There are even persons and groups running about that will “certify” a location as haunted for whatever that is worth.
It might surprise you to find out that I generally don’t like the term. It might surprise you even more to find out WHY I generally don’t like the term.
I don’t like the term because it is subjective and hard to measure.
I think that nearly every place is haunted.
Now before you start accusing me of misleading clients and assuming that all of those “orbs” in my pictures are spectral beings flitting about the countryside, let me explain.
