I am so very excited to finally share this year’s 2016 Halloween Seance with my guests, Ouija expert Karen Dahlman, and her board partner, Rodney! I want to thank those listeners who submitted questions for the seance weeks ago, and also thank them for their patience in waiting so long to see the response. We had so many submissions that there were quite a few that we didn’t get to. Please know that we did our best to get to as many as we could.
If we covered your question in the seance, or even if you were simply a viewer, please comment below or contact me with any validations, thoughts, or feelings after watching.
Thank you Karen and Rodney! And to my listeners and readers, Happy Halloween!! Enjoy!
Did you miss our LIVE Ouija Session with Karen A. Dahlman last week? Well don’t be sad, because you can watch all 2 hours and 18 minutes of it below!
It was truly an amazing experience, and the collective energy from the session left me with quite a ouija hangover the next day. I talked to Karen about this, and I may share more about it on the audio version of this session when I release it as a podcast in a week or two.
If you participated, watched live, or submitted questions for the session, I want to sincerely thank you for being a part of it all. And, of course, a GINORMOUS thank you goes out to Karen A. Dahlman and board partner Rodney!
Several viewers took to the Big Séance Parlor on Facebook with their thoughts and comments after the show. I want to encourage you to join the group if you haven’t already. Request to join and I’ll accept you, providing you’re not a robot… or one of my students… or creepy… or James Randi.
Here’s the awesome video! Enjoy!
So I had a wonderful Thanksgiving break, which also included a little break from blogging and podcasting. If anyone out there has just been super distraught over not having any Big Séance in your life over the last week, I do sincerely apologize. For the rest of you, I hope you enjoyed your break from me. I know one thing for certain, and that is that life and work has kicked in high gear once again. Am I right?
So why don’t I ask my audience a question that I probably should ask more often but haven’t.
Did Uncle Frank visit last week? Did you astral travel to the Bahamas in your sleep last night? Have you experienced any impressive intuitive moments lately? Please share in the comments section… or on this post from the social media of your choice!
The next episode of The Big Séance Podcast will likely cover my Third Annual Thanksgiving Ouija Séance that I held last week, once again, with my mother. I can’t confirm that this will be the content of next week, but it just might be. (Check out last year’s Thanksgiving Ouija Séance.)
This one requires a **SPOILER ALERT** if you haven’t seen the film Interstellar yet and you still plan to. We went to see this movie with our neighbors. I wasn’t super excited about seeing it, but smiled and tagged along anyway. I assumed it was just another “space movie”. Boy was I wrong! I won’t go into a bunch of detail, because it would require me to pull up about 3 Wikipedia articles to explain it all, but just know that you quantum physics nerds will be in HEAVEN when you see it. It’s very paranormal, or perhaps simply futuristic, but some claim it’s very close to being scientifically accurate! Though I don’t always possess the vocabulary to explain it well, I was so very proud of myself for predicting a few powerful twists and turns in the film that I don’t think the average person did. This is all due to surrounding myself in a constant sea of paranormal. I felt so smart! It was a fantastic and mind-blowing movie! (It is very long though, so plan on a mid-movie potty break.)
But simply seeing the movie is not why I’m mentioning it. After seeing the movie, I immediately remembered a strange experience that happened to me earlier that morning while waking up. It happened twice, and again, this is before I saw the movie. A female voice woke me from my slumber by sternly saying “Patrick!” I immediately woke up and was alert each time. I didn’t recognize the voice, and I told myself I’d remember… but I drifted back to sleep for a bit and forgot.
After the movie, I had a very strong feeling that the voice from earlier in the day was connected with seeing the film. I can’t explain it well, and I really don’t want to give it away (even with the spoiler alert), but I just know the voice and the experience of seeing Interstellar is connected. I can’t answer why or who, but I’ll keep you posted if more comes to me.
