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!

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!

Warrior Ghost or Gone in a Flash?

Warrior Ghost or Gone in a Flash? BigSeance.com

 

Every now and then I receive photos from readers or listeners. Often they come with a subject line like “What do you make of this?” I’ve never claimed to be an expert when it comes to analyzing possible paranormal evidence in a photograph. I don’t even bring it up much. And honestly, when I was out investigating, the photographs were always kind of an after thought. I used photos more for documentation of the surroundings, and never really thought about them as a way to capture evidence. As you probably know, my focus was always on audio.

Like many others in the paranormal field, the photos we often get sent to us involve “orbs”, which most of the time end up being quite obviously explainable. And just as often, it’s an awkward offended reaction that I get when I respond with my usual answer. People want SO BADLY for things to be a ghost… even after someone gives them 30 possible explanations for what they’re seeing. I’m not sure why some folks ask if they don’t want an honest response. And so some of these photos end up sitting in my inbox, or maybe I reply with something harmless like… “Cool photo!”

But this photo was different. I am NOT making a claim that this is paranormal. But isn’t it interesting? You don’t see one like this often. Here’s the information I have from the photo that was sent in by Sarah. I was given permission to share it with you. Sarah writes:

“I wanted to send you this photo and get your opinion.  I just [took] this picture of my daughter’s basketball team in our grade school gym.  There were children running around behind the team prior to me taking the picture but I sat and waited for them to leave before I snapped the pic.  If you look behind the chair of the last girl you can see that the white figure continues down behind her chair.  Please let me know what you think of the photo.
Thank you so much!”

 

What do YOU think? 

My mind immediately saw what looks like a solid foot or shoe planted on the ground behind the chair. If this were a child running behind the players in the photo, the foot would have been somewhat stationary, at least for the moment the picture was taken. But even then, seeing a solid foot doesn’t mean it isn’t paranormal. It’s definitely something to think about though. 

I also think that if Sarah admits to knowing children had been running around the team prior to the photo, could it be she captured one of them and she just doesn’t remember? That’s probably the most logical explanation. But… even then, I wouldn’t expect such a ghostly, unrecognizable flash of white from a camera in this day and age… even if the kid was super fast! But I could be very wrong. Thankfully, when I mentioned my question about a possible kid running behind the players, Sarah wasn’t offended. She responded very politely with the following: 

“I will tell you that when I took the picture I was not looking at the screen, I was actually looking over my camera to make sure all the children had ran past. I steadied the camera on my knees and watched above it. I actually have a sequence of pictures, one with the kids running past then the one with the figure that I sent you and then one with no one but the team. They are time stamped about 8 seconds apart.”

 

Surely we have some photographers or experienced investigators out there willing to weigh in with their thoughts or explanations. Is this a Warrior ghost?

And thank you for the photo, Sarah!

Love Never Dies by Jamie Turndorf, Book Giveaway at BigSeance.comDon’t forget about the Love Never Dies Book Giveaway! Deadline for entries is Monday March 30, 2015! Can’t wait to hear from you!


Love Never Dies: A Big Séance Book Giveaway!

This weekend I finished the third and final book from Andrea Perron’s House of Darkness House of Light trilogy, which very thoroughly documents the very real events that inspired the movie The Conjuring. (More on this soon!) So today, with perfect timing, Dr. Jamie Turndorf’s Love Never Dies: How to Reconnect and Make Peace with the Deceased arrived on my doorstep, and I just got started.

I am excited to announce that the publisher and author have offered to donate one book for a free Big Séance giveaway! See below for more details. 

 

Here’s more on Love Never Dies:

Love-Never-Dies-jamie-turndorf-big-seanceFamed relationship therapist, author and media personality Dr. Jamie Turndorf —known worldwide as Dr. Love— shares the amazing true story of her spiritual reconnection with her beloved deceased husband, internationally renowned former Jesuit priest Emile Jean Pin. Discovering for herself that relationships don’t end in death, Jamie recounts her remarkable experience where, through the depths of her grief after Jean’s sudden passing, her husband made known his continued presence–and undying love.

Drawing on these personal encounters, Jamie has created a groundbreaking new form of grief therapy that combines her acclaimed conflict-resolution techniques with after-death communication. The result: an unprecedented method that enables the bereaved to reconnect, resolve unfinished business, and make peace with the deceased. Filled with dozens of examples of spirit contact and communication, this book eliminates any doubt about life after death and shows that contact is ongoing. Loved ones in spirit don’t just linger briefly before going to “heaven” and disappearing from your life. Rather, heaven is a state, not a place, and your loved ones have an eternity to support you and heal any issues left behind when they passed on.

Come to recognize the numerous signs from spirit that you may have been missing. Learn to trust yourself and the process that’s right for you–not a shortened, artificial grief period prescribed by conventional doctors. Practice techniques for heightening your senses, expanding your awareness, and entering an open state, culminating in Jamie’s method for Dialoguing with the Departed.

When connection and love live on, fear is banished and relationships can grow and heal as never before. Begin opening your mind and your heart today!
