Demonic Hauntings: 10 Clues To Consider

by on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Demonic entities are a rare occurrence and there are a lot of snake oil salesmen out there that will tell you otherwise. So I’m here to give you simple clues to look for when you’re attempting to ascertain whether or not you’re dealing with a demon.

#1 – Hatred of Scripture

Someone who is possessed by a demonic entity will not abide scripture. The recitation of scripture will elicit a violent reaction. Also the person generally should not be able to recite scripture; rarely will they be able to.  They will also tend to  show an aversion to things like a cross or holy water. If the location is infested with a demonic presence the recitation of scripture will have a decidedly pronounced effect in the area. There may be physical manifestations such as objects being hurled (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…)

The PenIs Mightier: Document Your Experiences

by on Monday, August 9th, 2010

Documentation is key in any field; law,medicine,science,history, mathematics, etc. The pen truly is mightier than the sword.

So if you believe you are experiencing paranormal phenomenon document your experience. Document everything from the time, weather, mood, smell, sights, sounds, etc.

Keep a log of your experiences and utilize them to find the help you may need. Not everything that people experience is truly paranormal in nature. In fact, most things mistaken for paranormal have a complete logical explanation. Explore every possibility and dismiss that which can be readily (more…)

Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence

by on Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Carl Sagan once said “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” He is exactly correct when dealing with something moving from scientific theory to natural law. For instance, Nicolaus Copernicus had an extraordinary claim for his day called Heliocentrism. It was absolute heresy to say that the earth revolved around the sun in 1543! The establishment frowned upon this and his work was banned. Sad thing is it wasn’t really accepted until the 19th century. Over the course of time we’ve discovered that the sun doesn’t revolve around us, the galaxy doesn’t revolve around our sun and believe it or not we are not the center of the damn universe. As a matter of fact more than likely we are not the only universe. We exist in a multiverse.

If it were not for men like Copernicus that challenged belief for a seemingly wacked out notion, we would still all be sitting here with our thumb up our collective ass thinking we are the center of the whole damn thing. That’s where I think that the paranormal field is at today. It’s filed in  the pseudo-science (more…)

Shadow People: Ghosts, Demons, Aliens, Astral Bodies, Time Travelers … WTF!?

by on Friday, July 30th, 2010

The Shadow People (also known as shadow figures, shadow beings, shadow men,  shadow folk, shadow ghosts) are supernatural  shadow-like figures described as dark humanoid  forms or evasive specters that are seen mostly in peripheral vision.

Shadow people are typically described as black humanoid silhouettes  with no discernible mouths, noses, or facial expressions, child-sized humanoids, or shapeless masses that sometimes change to human like form and featuring eyes that are either glowing or not discernible.  Their movement is said to be quick and disjointed.

Some have proposed that shadow people represent a Thoughtform (egregore), ghost or demon that was created by events in which extreme physical/emotional stress/trauma has taken place, have been purposefully summoned through black magic or other occult practices, or are creatures who exist (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…)

Sleep Paralysis or Dark Entity?

by on Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Have you ever felt like you were awake but unable to move? You may have been terrified and not able to call for help. This condition is called sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis may leave you feeling frightened especially if you see or hear things that aren’t there. Sleep paralysis may happen only once, or you may have it several times.

Over the ages,  sleep paralysis has been described in many ways from unseen demons to alien abductions. People have looked for answers for this sleep-time paralysis and the feelings of terror.

But sleep researchers now know that, in most cases, sleep paralysis is simply a sign that your body isn’t moving through the stages of sleep. Rarely is sleep paralysis linked to  psychiatric problems.

Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but (more…)

Know Your Haunting: Poltergeist

by on Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Poltergeist is a German word meaning noisy ghost. Reports of poltergeists date back to Ancient Roman times.

The activity that takes place will start of with knocks and bangs, furniture starting to move around by itself. Then, the activity will become more intense, manifesting itself through voices and even the appearance of full apparitions. Furniture may slide across the room and beds may shake. Many shows are based on this is a style of haunting because it tends to be the most terrifying and rarest type of haunting that occurs.

Most of the time, in the case of a poltergeist, the haunting circles around a female in her teen years. Some of these cases seem to be caused by the female unknowingly controlling the energy around herself. Some cases happen around people that are stable and in the right mind space.

This haunting is hard to classify due to certain situations. No two are ever really the same. Most of the time you will find that one person in the household seems to be more affected by the haunting than anyone else. It may seem that most of the activity doesn’t (more…)
