Wasn’t it the most dreaded question growing up? You had just gotten off the bus and were SO PUMPED to go up to the attic to play office or library… or maybe you couldn’t wait to kick back on the couch with a Little Debbie (Star Crunches were my favorite) to watch the latest Donahue or Oprah episode (although that was usually only if 3-2-1 Contact was a repeat). No? Maybe that was just me (actually, that doesn’t even come close to the nerdiest things I did… I hope my family doesn’t read this one). Anyway, back to my point. The dreaded question… “What did you learn at school today?” always came when you least expected it… and no one was ever happy with the answer, were they?
About mid-way into my formal 2-week EVP experiment, Tom and Lisa Butler of the Association TransCommunication (ATransC, formerly AA-EVP), showed interest in my experiment and asked if I would submit a report on the experiment, my challenges, and “what I learned”. This is the association that was founded by Sarah Estep, whose book inspired me to conduct the experiment in the first place. I was (and still am) so very honored and excited just to be asked. Documenting my inspiration, the process, the outcome… that was the fun part… the cool part! I did that weeks ago. What did I learn? That’s where I’ve been stuck. WHY AM I STUCK? It’s one of the coolest things I’ve done. It was a great experience. In fact, I haven’t stopped the experiment. I’m not recording at the same intense pace, but I think it’s something I’ll do on a somewhat regular basis for a long time. I KNOW I learned something. Sometimes I feel I’ve learned so much in the last several years that I don’t know what to do with it all.
After some thought, I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe I’m struggling with this question because I was somewhat disappointed in the general results. I didn’t record a hard drive full of EVP like Randall Keller or Sarah Estep. However, I have since recorded several more EVP (or at least probable EVP) and that has gotten me excited again. Apparently, I have some spirit collaborators that have taken notice and are willing to help me out. So… is “patience” what I learned? “Patience” might get me one sentence. Did I gain an EVP addiction?
Maybe I just have a fear of the question. I know you’re just dying to find out, refreshing my blog hourly to see what knowledge I gained. 🙂 I’ll get crackin’ and keep you posted………………………………
Hmmm… Those of you who tuned in for much of my experiment, what did YOU learn? (Can you see me leaning over to check out your homework? I’m only interested because I want to know if I did it correctly. Yup… I was that kid too.)
