Bring Out the Fire…

Because I know I have several readers that are either into, or experts in the area of dreams, at some point this week I was planning on describing a dream a friend and neighbor of mine shared with me recently. Shortly after that conversation, I had an interesting and similar dream. This was all a couple of weeks ago. But last night I had a dream like I’ve never had before. Because of its strangeness (or goofiness?), and because I don’t want to forget details, I’ll push pause on the other dream post and share the latest one. I’m not even sure how to present it to you today, really. Are you sitting down?

By the way, I’m assuming the details that I am able to remember now was the end of a dream. I don’t know how it all started.

I was apparently watching a movie. The camera angle was high in the sky and panning over a setting that looked like Oregon coastline. There was a large and beautiful dinosaur… FIGURE SKATING… on what seemed to be lightly frozen waters. Like a movie where a child runs out onto a frozen pond and you cringe because you just know the ice isn’t incredibly solid, I feared for the life of this giant creature. Was it an animated film? I’m not sure. It seemed very real to me. But even though I was uncomfortable and fearing the ice would break, the dramatic 1990’s Alan Menken-like Disney pop score (bring on Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson) soared beautifully as the elegant dinosaur made large figure eights on the ice. You could see every cut created by the giant ice skates. It seemed like the ending of a movie where you expect the credits to roll any second. Still concerned for the dinosaur, I wondered if we were being fooled and the dinosaur was going to crash through the ice. But the music score was beautiful and emotional and didn’t hint at any danger. I could even hear the melody and lyrics to the chorus being repeated over and over… “Bring out the fire.”

That’s when I woke up. And like my previous posts about being so excited about realizing I had been reading in my dreams, I was so very impressed with the fact that I could still hear the melody and the lyrics. I don’t remember it at the moment, but lying in bed this morning, the melody was stuck in my head for quite a while. I’m absolutely sure it’s a melody that doesn’t exist. I’d never heard it before. And “Bring out the fire”… what’s that about?

Just before writing this post, I searched “Bring out the fire” on Google. There were tons of links to what is apparently a very popular Usher song, titled More, that includes “bring out the fire” as part of the lyrics. I listened to the song. I’d never heard it before and it didn’t seem anything like the song in my dream. Also, just minutes ago I Googled “Peabo Bryson” to make sure I was spelling the name correctly above and one of the first links was a video for a 1978 Peabo Bryson song with the title Feel the Fire. Weird.

 

So there you have it. Do any of you hear newly composed music with lyrics in your dreams? And do you wake up singing it? I really should have recorded myself singing it into a recorder so I’d have it, but that seemed embarrassing. 🙂

Updates on My Summer: Spirit Box, Clock Radio, EVP Sessions, and More…

I have had a truly relaxing and lazy summer. Those who know me know that I don’t require much entertainment when I’m on vacation or have free time. The truth is, I usually don’t even like to leave the house. My little family here keeps me happy. 🙂 But, I have had some really nice highlights that include a vacation to the Smoky Mountains, a trip home to see the big family and tours of my hometown cemeteries, and of course, lots of reading. When I haven’t been lazy, I’ve spent many, many hours conducting EVP sessions, reviewing audio from those sessions, cemetery visits, and even evidence from an investigation that was months ago. But believe it or not, the school year is approaching and summer is on its way out for me. Preparations for a new year have already begun, both in my head and in the physical world, including the exciting task of writing more new curriculum.  And recently I’ve been contacted with some new and important cases involving a few families. There is always a “to do list”, but these cases will move up a bit in priority. Also, I’m excited to be thinking about and planning some séances with Marilyn Painter for this fall. Can’t wait! I hope I can keep up with it all and blog at the same time… Am I still talking? 🙂 

Cemetery Recordings…

During my recent visits to cemeteries in my hometown, I recorded a couple of hours total of audio. I’ve found a few interesting things, but as usual, not as much as I’d hoped for. I’m still working my way through it so I’m not yet prepared to share anything. 

Clock Radio & Spirit Box…

My clock radio and spirit box.

Those of you who have been following along this summer know that recently I had a dream about spirit contacting me through a clock radio… a clock radio similar to the one in my house growing up. My parents found it in the attic and I now have it in my possession. Before it was in my possession, however, during some EVP sessions I attempted to get some clarification or instructions on how I was supposed to use the device to achieve spirit communication. I have a few responses that are unclear. It is also interesting to note that in both of those sessions I had technical problems with both a microphone that I use and an unusual feedback from another recorder that I have NEVER heard before. This feedback seemed to always happen after questions and has a similar quality to the old school sounds of dialing up to an internet connection. Could it be the sounds of spirit working on fine-tuning the connection? I hope to post an example of this feedback soon so that someone techie might recognize what could be causing it, if anything.

I’ve done two or three experimental sessions with the clock radio, as well as the spirit box. Both of these pieces of equipment, at least for spirit communication purposes, involve a technique called “radio sweep”, which along with EVP fits under the umbrella of “ITC” (Instrumental Trans-Communication). It is a technique that I’ve read a lot about, but haven’t had a lot of experience with until recently.

As you may know, I’ve witnessed convincing evidence that spirits communicate with this technique (such as reading specific words or identifying items in a room), however, I’m still skeptical about many of the types of responses that many researchers claim to hear. For example, even though it sounds as if you’re getting a response (which are usually 1 syllable), is it just a voice from a passing frequency? I could just let my spirit box sweep through frequencies right now without engaging spirits or asking questions and hear multiple sounds that could resemble “yes” or “no” or any other frequent one-syllable answers (including numbers) that researchers claim to hear. Is the spirit using bits and pieces of someone else’s voice and words to form their own words? If so, how do some researchers claim to know the gender or number of spirits communicating based on the pitch or timbre of the voice? Or… will it be their own voice somehow floating in its own layer above the noise? And yes, sometimes it seems to just be noise. I’ve heard and read about answers to these questions, but I still just don’t know. Basically, I’m a bit conflicted and go back and forth with my opinions of the technique and the “responses” that I may or may not be getting. More to come, I suppose…

 

Enjoy the rest of summer! Peace!

 

 


A New EVP… Instructions About the Clock Radio?

Have you wondered why I haven’t posted many new EVP on here recently? Oh, that would be because I haven’t had much luck lately. True, I have slowed down a bit with my sessions at home, but I’ve also completed analysis of a few investigations as well as two cemetery recordings. Not much as far as EVP goes. At least nothing that I can confidently say is spirit communication. My excuse for slacking on my EVP sessions is due mainly to being backed up with footage and audio to analyze from investigations, and things like vacation, life happening, etc. Could it be true that being consistent is a big factor in spirit communication? I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t disappointed. When I ran into an EVP drought months ago during my two-week EVP experiment, I got inspiration from Sarah Estep. I wish she or one of the other pioneer greats would show up with some wisdom for me right about now. 🙂  

 

A New EVP… 

But the good news is this. Two nights ago I decided to record a short session while I relaxed on the bed in the bedroom while alone in the house. It was late at night and so it was pretty quiet. I usually conduct sessions at my desk in the loft. I also usually use two recorders. This time I did not. It is important to note that around six minutes into this session I twice asked for a knock in the room to validate that a presence was with me. I got a knock each time. It had been a while since I’d received such knocking communication and I wondered if it was the return of my rapper. With that being said, after the two single knocks I asked for further validation and got nothing. 

Just before this possible EVP was captured (about eight minutes into the session), I was asking about the dream that I mentioned in an earlier post. The dream seemed to be spirit letting me know they were aware of my research. This dream also involved clear communication with a clock radio like the one I remember having in the house when I was younger. After the discussion in the comments from that post, I’ve been left wondering whether the clock radio was just symbolism or if I’m really supposed to try it. (By the way, my parents found it in the attic of their house. It is exactly like the one pictured in the dream post. I’ll be picking it up when I visit this weekend.) In the session, I had just asked “Is that something I’m supposed to try?” (I was referring to the clock radio.) As usual, I have no clue what may be communicated here. Your feedback is welcome.

I’m probably not supposed to tell you this because skeptics will take it and run. And… (sigh)… I know I’m sometimes too openly skeptic with my own work, therefore I probably end up missing true examples of spirit communication. However, I just can’t NOT be honest. Though it was very quiet in the room, and though I have gotten pretty good at calling out or “tagging” strange noises from the environment during sessions, I have to tell you that Meril (our 4 legged son… name pronounced like “Meryl” Streep, thank you very much) was relaxing in his kennel just a few feet away from the recorder on the night stand. I didn’t tag anything in the audio and I don’t recall hearing strange noises coming from him. 

 

 


Spirit Communication through a Clock Radio…

Last night I had another dream. It was the first night of being back in my own bed after several days in a cabin on vacation. Since it is summer and I’m sleeping more, I guess I’m going to wake up remembering them more frequently. 

Here we go… 

First of all, I was younger and single, and I was playing the role of myself in some other reality, I suppose. I was staying at a friend’s house. I don’t believe this friend exists in real life, but I do know the house resembled something you’d see on Hoarders, so apparently OCD wasn’t a concern of mine in this alternate reality. I was also doing my laundry there, but I’m not sure why. Doesn’t matter. Anyway… 

So we were all just hanging out in this friend’s (very messy) bedroom, and he was showing us how a spirit very often spoke to him through his clock radio. As if he was Marcello Bacci (a notable ITC researcher most famous for contacting spirit through a radio), he stood next to his device on his night stand, twisting dials. I don’t remember there being much static or other noise, but after a while there was suddenly a clear voice that communicated with us all in the room. The part about the dream that blew my mind was that the voice mentioned me by name and knew of me, saying he was aware of my attempts to communicate with spirit. I couldn’t wait to get a clock radio of my own to try it out at home, especially since the spirit world was apparently aware of me and was trying so hard to contact me from their side.  

I don’t remember much else, but I woke up incredibly disappointed when I realized I didn’t have a clock radio like my friend had in the dream. I can remember what it looked like though.

This is pretty close to the clock radio from my dream, except there was a speaker on the right of the face.

This is a pretty close representation of what was in my dream. We had one just like this growing up, only in my dream I clearly remember there being a plastic grill for a speaker on the right side of the face. 

Was this me being just as big of a dork in my dream as I am in real life? Or… should I be ordering one of these off of eBay?
