Unpacking The Big Séance!

I’ve taken a break from all things Big Séance due to my move and cleaning (and scrubbing… and cleaning… and cleaning), unpacking and organizing. I never planned to take this time off, but it has taken much longer than I thought it would, and I’ve used up a lot more energy than I originally planned. But I’m excited to get this new and improved “studio” up and running. I hope to be back with a new episode very soon! And can you believe I’m already getting excited to plan for fall???

While you’re waiting, have you caught up with all episodes of the podcast in the archives?

Thanks for your patience. Be back soon!

Patrick


How will you communicate from the Afterlife? I want to know.

I’m working on a podcast episode where we’ll discuss how the living can plan for how they will communicate to loved ones from the Afterlife/Other Side. I’d love to get some ideas, include your thoughts, or even your Voice Feedback in the episode. 

 

So here’s an example:

Anyone who knows me knows that I’ll be trying ANYTHING to get your attention, but for my loved ones specifically, I’ll be focusing around the area of your nightstand. I’ll be moving things around, making it obvious that something is different. I’ll be switching the lights on and off. I’ll turn your picture frame upside down. That kind of thing. But know that I’ll also be trying to speak, leave EVP, and flutter my fingers around your face to make you feel like you just walked through a cobweb. You’re welcome.

 

How will you communicate from the Afterlife/Other Side?Times are changing!

Will your contact involve a communication device, like a phone? E-mail? Text message? Skype? Times are changing, and so is the communication that comes across from spirits!

Some techniques will always be around though. For example, I’m still waiting to get my butt pinched from my Great Grandma. She managed to get my mom a few years back. 

 

 

I want to hear from you!! Here’s how:

  1. Leave Voice Feedback using the SpeakPipe page!
  2. Call the Big Séance Podcast Hotline at  (775) 583-5563!
  3. Contact me at Patrick@BigSeance.com!
  4. Leave a comment under this post on the Big Séance Facebook page!

 

Have a great week!
