Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Patrick circa. 1983.

Because I know tomorrow is a busy day for everyone, on this eve of perhaps my favorite holiday I’d like to wish all of my readers a very happy and spooky Halloween! I also want to mention that several of my regular readers have been directly affected by Hurricane Sandy. It will be a very different Halloween for many people on the East Coast this year. Let’s keep them in our thoughts.

As a “trick or treat” I thought I would leave you with a link to where you can send a personalized séance with a “Happy Halloween” message to someone. You can watch the video below to see how it works. Here’s the link.

 

 

 


Video Part 2: Highlights from our 9/15/12 Séance…

It is finally time to reveal the highlights of our two and a half hour September 15, 2012  séance. I’d like to thank Marilyn Painter at Ahtah Sanctuary Holistic Center in St. Peters, Missouri for sharing her time and talents with us for this project. 

If you haven’t been following along, here is some of the previously shared information. Marilyn beautifully announced our intention that evening with the following words.

 ”We set our intention tonight to bring forth those from the past who have an interest in bringing forth evidence to this physical world that spirit exists – that we as human beings, divine human beings are able to make connections and to communicate with those in spirit. Our intention tonight is also to bring forth, without a shadow of a doubt, evidence and proof that we are divine beings of light.”

Our invited spirit pioneers included Sarah Estep, Thomas Alva Edison, Helen Duncan, Konstantin Raudive, and Eileen Garrett. 

 

Some details regarding the “experiment” part of our séance…

Throughout the two and a half hour séance, I documented changes in EMF (electromagnetic field) and temperature. Also, along with recording the evening with multiple video cameras, I had two digital audio recorders in the room. My intention was to hopefully capture some EVP (electronic voice phenomena) as well. 

It is important to note that there were absolutely no EMF readings during the séance. I spent a lot of time charting temperature changes in the room and it seemed to rise and fall predictably and gradually as the air conditioning in the room turned on and off. I do not feel like any of the temperature changes were out of the ordinary or “paranormal”.  And, although I have a few artifacts of what could possibly be spirit voices captured on audio, I am not comfortable with making any claims about them or sharing them with the public. At least not now. 

 

Here is the Part 1 video…

…with an introduction and information on how we prepared for the evening. This was shared previously.

 

 

And here is Part 2…

I welcome your thoughts and comments. Please enjoy!

 

If you enjoyed following this séance, stay tuned for information on the séance we had on Saturday, September 29, 2012. 

 

Peace!

 

 


From Pumpkins to Jack-O-Lanterns 2012…

My 2012 punkin’ head… I decided to go with a classic look this year.

 

Punkin’ heads on the porch… Joe’s punkin’ head is on the right. He always has to draw attention with his and be avant garde.

 

Meril’s traditional punkin’ head… He had a bit of help from Joe…

 

I just love capturing the sniff shots…

Video Part 1: Communicating with Great Pioneers through Séance…

Have you been curious as to how our first séance went? Are you tired of me dropping hints while I’ve been watching footage and listening to audio for the last several weeks? Well I finally have Part 1 of our evening up and ready to check out. This video covers the introduction and preparation. Part 2 will contain highlights of the actual séance. I would love to have been able to post it here as well, but I’m still working on it. I hope to post it later this week.

 

 

For my previous posts regarding our first séance…

Séance Sneak Peek!

 

 


Why did the full-blown apparition cross the road?

I was driving through my hometown a few nights ago when I instantly realized there was a full-blown apparition of a person crossing the road up ahead. This figure seemed to have a slightly translucent glow and didn’t notice me parking the car to watch it walk into the tree line. It was 12:02am. I was so excited and amazed. Since it seemed to be a residual apparition, I decided to make an appearance around midnight the next night. Good thing there’s not a lot of traffic in this small town late at night. I waited off in a ditch near where I saw it the night before. Suddenly there it was. Silent. Full of color and detail. It was a middle-aged, African-American man with a blue jacket and a stocking cap. He was walking so lethargically (totally not a word) and without purpose. Still translucent. Still not noticing me, even though I was very near him. I was experiencing such an adrenaline rush that I forgot to pull my phone out for a picture. Actually, I did remember, but by the time I fumbled around for the right icon and waited for it to open, my picture was only of the tree line after he disappeared on the other side. I was too late. I decided to sit and wait. Maybe he would come back? It was getting cold and I was about to leave when from out of the corner of my eye I saw him. This time from the side of the street where he previously disappeared. He was coming back. It was 12:27am. He had the same look, the same lethargic walk, only this time he carried a bottle of liquor in a bag. I pulled my phone back out and got really close as he made his way to the other side of the street. I got a perfect picture. I noticed the bag had the name “Bubb’s” or “Bubba” (I couldn’t tell which) on it. I took a mental note to research the name. Perhaps a bar? A liquor store?

I woke up so excited. It took me a while to realize it was a dream and I hadn’t really captured the coolest apparition in the world. I told myself I’d work hard to remember the details, though. 🙂 


Have you ever received a phone call from the dead?

The video below is an episode of 30 Odd Minutes with Jeff Belanger. In this episode Jeff interviews Cal Cooper, a parapsychologist from the UK. He is the author of the brand new book Telephone Calls From the Dead, which I just started this week. I really like this guy. He has some interesting things to say and I thought it was a great interview. He seems young and hip, and I can’t help but wonder what he’ll bring to the future of parapsychology. 

I wanted to note that in the interview, along with phone calls from the dead, they mention several items that we’ve  discussed here recently at The Big Séance. Some of these items include EVP, Friedrich Jurgenson, séance, Spiricom and George Meek’s phone call from Konstantin Raudive from the other side, Thomas Edison, and talking boards.

Enjoy!

 

 

 


Communicating with Great Pioneers through Séance…

On Saturday September 15th, Marilyn and I, along with two other sitters, held our first of two séances for this fall. A more detailed report and a video of the evening will be coming soon. But for now, are you interested in a preview?

 

Our Intention for the Evening…

Marilyn beautifully announced our intention that evening with the following words.

 “We set our intention tonight to bring forth those from the past who have an interest in bringing forth evidence to this physical world that spirit exists – that we as human beings, divine human beings are able to make connections and to communicate with those in spirit. Our intention tonight is also to bring forth, without a shadow of a doubt, evidence and proof that we are divine beings of light.”

 

Our Invited Spirits…

(This is the photo that was used during the séance.)

During the séance, I asked Sarah the following question. “Sarah, your book, Voices of Eternity, has inspired me and many others. I think all of us here are probably very anxious to find the answers to some of the same questions that you were asking of the other side before you crossed over. Can you share some of what you’ve learned since crossing over?” 

Thomas Alva Edison

The inventor, Thomas Alva Edison.
(This is the photo that was used during the séance.)

During the séance, I asked Thomas the following question. “Just before crossing over, you mentioned to your physician ‘It is very beautiful over there’. Can you describe what you were seeing and what we should expect to see when we cross over?”

Helen Duncan

Medium, Helen Duncan.
(This is the photo that was used during the séance.)

With her experiences with physical mediumship, Helen was asked if there was some kind of physical phenomena that she could produce for us. 

Konstantin Raudive

Parapsychologist and EVP researcher, Konstantin Raudive.
(This is the photo that was used during the séance.)

Konstantin greeted us with so much information that we didn’t even get to a specific question for him.

Eileen Garrett

Medium and parapsychologist, Eileen Garrett.
(This is the photo that was used during the séance.)

During the séance, I asked Eileen the following question. “As a medium, you were involved with a lot of scientific experiments. Your health was reportedly affected by many of your trance sessions. Can you tell us anything you learned about the well-being of people on earth working in the paranormal or spiritual fields? Are there safety concerns?”
