Day 6 and EVPs on the D-List…

Just an update…

 

Today is Day Six of my EVP experiment. Sarah Estep recorded her first clear voice on the sixth day. I have yet to review today’s recordings but I can tell you a little about what I heard reviewing Day Five’s recordings.

 

It is probably the standard for researchers to NOT display a “Class C” EVP or lower. What I hear would not even be classified as “C” and wouldn’t hold up in the court of EVP for sure, therefore you will not find them posted here… at least not yet. They may not be voices at all. But at least I feel like I’m making progress. If it is true that those on the other side need time to learn and adjust to communicating just as we do, then I feel good about this progress.

 

The two segments of my 3-17-12 EVP session that have possible light voices in the background are about one minute apart from each other and were recorded on the same digital audio recorder (I’ve been using two), the Sony PX-820. With this recorder I used the internal microphone. It is the same recorder that picked up Missouri Spirit Seekers’ best EVP catch at Friedens United Church of Christ in St. Charles, MO (those audio files are listed as EVP: Voice A, B, C, and D). The first of yesterday’s possible voice(s) is moments after the question “Can you tell me your name or anything about you?” Then shortly after asking for assistance in bringing Sarah Estep through, I asked “Is Sarah Estep available?” More possible voices followed.

 

My Setup for EVP Recording Sessions

 


Daily EVP Research…

Now days in paranormal investigation, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) tend to be the most popular form of evidence caught.

As the founder of Missouri Spirit Seekers, I can tell you we are probably a little more cautious at claiming ANY evidence is paranormal than a lot of other groups out there. Therefore, we don’t have a ton of dramatic EVP evidence that we believe is 100% paranormal, but our biggest piece of evidence in the form of EVP is from one of our investigations of Friedens United Church of Christ in St. Charles, MO. Below is a video of this EVP that I put together.

 

 

Not all who study EVP do it via paranormal investigations of haunted locations.

There are many people who have a daily routine of recording and communicating with spirits on the other side and those that remain earthbound. Many people claim to also record voices of entities from other planets or galaxies. There is so much to learn about EVP, who we are talking to, and how it works, and in my opinion the study of it is still very much in its infancy.

One of things I like to do occasionally is record random EVP sessions in my home. I’m not really good at being consistent (and that’s important) because life gets busy and it’s not always easy to find a quiet time and place. Before these sessions I try to ground and center and sometimes have a quick meditation. During the sessions I always ask if there are any entities from the light present who are willing to communicate with me to further the study of EVP and life on the other side. I frequently ask to talk to some of the EVP pioneers who have been known to communicate with people around the world. For portions of the recordings I’ll usually use three different kinds of “white noise” that has been known to help entities produce sound and communicate. I also frequently use Stefan Bion’s EVP Maker, which many people use study EVP use. After learning how many people have been contacted through electronic devices, such as a computer, I’ve also been opening a new word document for each session as well. Why not? This kind of documented evidence (and EVP itself) is an example of Instrumental TransCommunication, or ITC.

I’ve not had a lot of success with my personal EVP sessions yet, but I’m determined to keep trying. As I said, I haven’t been very consistent. Starting this week I am on vacation for two weeks. I plan to conduct short EVP sessions daily during this whole time period. I’ve learned a lot from Sarah Estep’s Voices of Eternity and I recently joined the Association TransCommunication (formerly AA-EVP that was started by Estep herself). I’d like to try some new things. I hope to have some things to share with you in the next few weeks.

I highly recommend the following books if you’re interested in EVP.

"There is No Death and There Are No Dead" by Tom and Lisa Butler. They are the current directors of ATransC.

 

"Voices of Eternity" by Sarah Estep

 

"Talking to the Dead" by George Noory and Rosemary Ellen Guiley

 

"Something Unseen" by Stephen Hill
