Know Your Enemy: Fear

by on Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

A wise man once said that fear was the only true enemy, born of ignorance and parent to anger and hatred.

When we fear a thing, we deliver to it on a silver platter power over us. The power to control us in virtually every way, shape and form. You become the marionette and fear becomes the puppet master. With a twitch of its finger fear will move you this way, and that way having you sway about on its own whims. It will feed from the responses it gets from you and grow stronger and stronger.

The question now becomes; will you allow something to control you (more…)

Mothman & Paranormal Activity or Sandhill Crane

by on Friday, November 5th, 2010

Halloween has just passed and it seems only fitting to address some of the lore and urban legends surrounding the Appalachian Mountain Regions.
Many years before Screen Gems Entertainment, Tom Rosenburg, Richard Gere and Laura Linney introduced the world to the legend of the Mothman through a motion picture entitled The Mothman Prophecies; the small town of Point Pleasant, WV. and its inhabitants, were well aware of the existence of a being that stoked fear in the hearts of everyone who claimed to have witnessed the sightings.

OK, well for now let us get some background information on this phenomenon and forget about the glitz and CGI of a Hollywood Production.

It is October 17, 1774 and a battle took place between Virginia militiamen and a tribal confederation led by; Shawnee Chief, Cornstalk. This battle took place between the Kanawha and Ohio Rivers, which would later; in 1794 (more…)

Seek And Ye Shall Find: Researching The History Of Your House

by on Monday, September 13th, 2010

So you believe that you’ve had some paranormal experience in your home and believe that you’re living in a haunted house; now you want to know the history of your house but don’t know where to start. I know that this can seem like an insurmountable task but rest assured that it’s actually pretty easy to find out what you need to know about the history of your house.

First stop on your trek should be your local County Clerk’s office to look at land records. All you need is the address and you can work your way back in time to find the previous owners. Make sure you take notes of all the names you discover. You can also look for property tax related indexes but they may be at a different county office. Someone will at the County Clerk’s office (more…)

Think Clearly Not Deeply: Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields

by on Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

“The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.”

– Nikola Tesla

An electromagnetic field is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. The electromagnetic field extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the electromagnetic interaction. It is one of the four fundamental forces. The electromagnetic field can be viewed (more…)

Tool Time: Renovations & Paranormal Activity

by on Saturday, August 21st, 2010

We’ve all heard the same song and dance about  how a family or business started renovating their property and shortly thereafter began experiencing paranormal activity.

Some believe that disturbance to the property may provoke spirits that have been otherwise dormant back to life as it were. Alterations to a home that an entity holds dear, and may be quite protective of, may stir enough emotional energy for the spirit to make its presence known.

The energy of demolition or construction is sometimes all that’s needed to provide the strength for a spirit to display activity. Renovations often come with teams of laborers, high stress (more…)

Dude It’s Raining Orbs

by on Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Orbs are great when the real thing is captured on film. Problem is most people don’t know how to analyze it. With their decidedly untrained eyes they make a declaration:

People we have Orbs and because we have Orbs this place is haunted!

Number one more than likely they have not caught an Orb. It’s a ten to one bet that they caught one of the following: dust, particulate matter, bugs,  water vapor and we can’t forget my favorite the lens flare. Number two Orbs are not indicative of paranormal phenomenon they are simply a form of energy. While what we call spirits can use this energy  to manifest themselves it by no means says that they are there.

Now lets talk about criteria for an Orb:

1.  It should be a perfect sphere. That means no oblong (more…)

Is it Good or Bad?

by on Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Good vs Evil by FlyinfroggOne of the first questions people ask themselves when they are confronted with paranormal activity is “Is it good or evil?”. Subconsciously and often too frequently the answer they give themselves is “Of course it’s evil, it just slammed a door!!”

This is usually an unfounded and biased decision based on dozens of scary movies, ghost stories around the fire and society’s general lack of knowledge on the subject. Just because it’s ghostly does not mean it’s evil.

First off, typically you’ll be confronted by what we call a “human spirit”. This is the spirit of someone who was once alive, as you and I are alive. They were born on earth, they had a job, most likely a family, a dog, and most importantly, they died. (more…)
