9 Tips to Keep the Paranormal Alive in Your Life Throughout the Winter – The Big Séance Podcast #25

big seance podcast, banner

 

Sad Bronze Angel in the Snow, Bellefontaine Cemetary, St. LouisSuffering from the winter blahs? Cabin fever starting to kick in? The winter tends to be a time when many paranerds out there, struggle to find enough paranormal activity or content to keep them happy. If you’re truly one of these nerds, the autumn/Halloween season just isn’t enough to keep you going for the rest of the year. For some, the days seem longer, even though they’re shorter, and maybe you’re longing for fall once again… or at least spring. Well I’m here to get you out of that funk with 9 tips to keep the paranormal alive in your life throughout the winter.

In this episode:

 

Tip #1: Find a good book on a paranormal, spiritual, or metaphysical topic… or even just a good ghost story!
 
Here are 4 recent books that I’ve read and can recommend to you: 
  1. “Reunions: Visionary Encounters with Departed Loved Ones” – Raymond Moody
  2. “Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife” – Raymond Moody
  3. “The Spirit of Creativity: Embodying Your Soul’s Passion” – Karen A. Dahlman
  4. “Soul Sensing: How to Communicate With Your Dead Loved Ones” – Janice Carlson

I’m currently Reading “Soul-to-Soul Connections: Comforting Messages from the Spirit World”, by future guest, Carole J. Obley.

If you’re looking for a more detailed list of book recommendations and reviews, you can check out my Recommended Reading page. I’m very often adding to and updating that list. 

 

Tip #2: Plan and hold a séance with a small group of friends! 

 

Tip #3: Consider reading a how-to book on something like channeling, meditating, Ouija, Tarot, Astral Travel, EVP, or another equally interesting topic.

By the way, I plan on producing a kind of “how-to EVP” episode sometime soon. I know quite a few people who have talked about giving it a try, or have expressed interest in learning how to go about it. And I know these folks would be great at it and get a lot out of it. So stay tuned. And maybe you could let me know if you’re one of those people. Get in touch with me. 

 

Tip #4: Find a cozy place to stay for the weekend. It doesn’t even have to be haunted. It certainly helps if the place has some interesting history to it, or maybe it just looks haunted!

  • Probably just about every region has a few cute bed and breakfasts. 
  • How about the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado?
  • Or how about the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas?
  • Or the famous Lemp Mansion here in St. Louis?

 

Tip #5: Watch an old black and white spooky movie… or two or three. And I have a few suggestions:

 

Listener Feedback!
  • A Big THANK YOU to some wonderful listeners who have written kind reviews in iTunes!
  • Some exciting news and an update on a psychic development circle started by Marion, a medium and listener from the UK!

 

Tip #6: Start an interesting or vintage collection, perhaps one that causes you to dig into some history or genealogy.

 

Tip #7: Visit an old Cemetery with a camera (especially after a pretty snow!) 

 

Tip #8: Start a Grave Adoption project.
  • If you listened to Episode #11 from September 4, 2014, I suggested that listeners consider starting a new fall tradition of adopting graves. 

 

Tip #9: Invite a paranormal investigation team into your home or a friend’s home and convince them to let you help investigate!

Janice Carlson – Janice has been a lovely friend and supporter of the podcast. You can hear my interview with her if you go to episode 10 from August 27, 2014. I wanted to start our special predictions episode with Janice today, because this was actually all her idea… and I thought it was brilliant! For more on Janice, visit janicecarlson.com.

Psychic Carole J. Obley, The Big Séance PodcastCarole J. Obley – A future guest of an upcoming episode of The Big Séance Podcast, Carole has been the bridge between heaven and earth in over 7,000 group and individual readings.

Names, descriptions of loved ones’ personalities and uncanny, validating details as well as grief support and teachings about the Afterlife are typically delivered in her readings. Heartfelt and compassionate in her approach, Carole is also well-known for her practical, down-to-earth guidance and insight into life issues, such as relationships, career and finance.

Karen shares some predictions for the year 2015 that she received from one of her spirit friends known as “The Moon”, and she received these predictions from the Ouija board. 

Our last two contributions stand out, because they are channeled messages that are recorded as they’re happening. Both Lee Allen Howard and Marilyn Painter have been guests on the podcast, and I’m glad to have them back.

Lee gives his 2015 psychic predictions, but also leaves us with the recording of him channeling a message that he received from a “watcher” that he talks about on building-the-bridge.com. He received this on November 24, 2014 during a channeling session. 

Marilyn Painter, Psychic Predictions and Prophesies for 2015, Big Séance PodcastMarilyn Painter – She was my very first guest in episode 1. You can also hear her in episode 9 from August 20th, 2014. For more on Marilyn, visit ahtahsanctuary.com

Marilyn also shares a recording of her channeling the energies of 2015.

 

I hope you enjoyed this episode, and I would absolutely LOVE to hear from you if you have any thoughts about any of the messages you heard today. I’m sure all of these folks would love to hear about any validation if you notice anything lining up as they predicted. I hope to hear from you!

 

Happy New Year! Have a GREAT 2015!

Halloween Memories and Traditions

In this episode:

A Halloween Housewarming in 1911

A special return visit from Meth Hazel

Returning from episode 2 of the Big Séance Podcast, our next guest, Annie Wilder has a cool story from a Halloween night a few years ago. Now you have to remember that she lives in a haunted house, and when she mentions “the sisters” and “Leon”, those are spirits that are known to reside with her in the home.

Sara Wiseman joined us on October 2, 2014. I really enjoyed that conversation. She may have the sweetest and most calming voice ever, but you might want to briefly turn the lights on for this recent memory.

My friend Lee Allen Howard was with us for the September 11, 2014 episode. He is a medium and metaphysician, but he’s also an author, and he writes some horrifying things. And from his memories, it kind of makes you understand just where it all came from.

Next up is Karen A. Dahlman, who has been on the show twice, July 23, and October 16, of 2014. I absolutely love her story, and Karen was nice enough to send in a very special photo for all of us to enjoy.

Medium and psychic, Janice Carlson, joined us on August 27, 2014. She’s really fun to talk to, and she joins us again now to share this thought-provoking memory of a childhood Halloween. She also wanted to share an article she wrote about Halloween. **Janice’s drawing is coming soon!**

On September 18, 2014, Rob Gutro joined us to talk about Pets and the Afterlife. Here’s a memory from Rob.  

If you’re a regular listener of the Big Séance Podcast, you know just how much respect I have for our final guest tonight, a man who has influenced me greatly! I was so very honored to have Jim Harold, of the Paranormal Podcast, join me back on Sept 25, 2014. I invited him to come back to share his thoughts on a favorite tradition on Halloween. If you’re a parent, you’ll relate to this one.

A special credit and “thank you” goes out to the incredibly talented Tim Prasil, for writing the really funny story for Meth Hazel’s appearance tonight. Thanks for playing along with us, and sharing your time and talent, Tim. You’ll actually be hearing from Tim, who is a writer, in a future episode of the podcast. You can learn more about him at timprasil.wordpress.com.

Don’t forget!! Are you a regular listener? Please e-mail (or call, or SpeakPipe) with where you’re listening from, and how you’re listening! I’d appreciate it! Patrick@BigSeance.com

Announcing the Winner of the Janice Carlson Remote Viewing Contest!

The Janice Carlson Remote Viewing contest for The Big Seance Podcast

Janice Carlson and her dog Buzzbee, a German Shepherd and Golden Retriever mix.

 

soul sensing how to communicate with dead loved ones by Janice Carlson, big seance podcast, remote viewing exercise, contest, book giveawayIn episode 10 of The Big Séance Podcast, Janice Carlson agreed to have a little fun with listeners, and announced a contest for a chance to win a copy of her book, Soul Sensing: How to Communicate With Your Dead Loved Ones. Listeners were to psychically tune into the pet that was sitting with her during the interview, and be the first to most accurately describe him. Buzzbee, the beautiful subject of this exercise, is pictured above with Ms. Carlson.

Though none of the responders were very close in describing Buzzbee, Belle, who recorded her submission by clicking on the Record Voice Feedback link in the menu at the top of the page, actually described another pet in the household pretty spot-on, according to Janice. How cool is that?! So Janice determined that Belle, who listens from Canada, should be the winner!

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO BELLE FROM CANADA!

If you listened to episode 11 of the podcast, you heard her audio submission.

 

I wanted to thank those who played along and responded, giving us a chance to have some fun with our very first contest/giveaway! And also, thank you to Janice Carlson for donating a copy of the book.

Thanks for reading and listening!

Next up on the podcast, and in a related topic, is an interview with Rob Gutro, author of Pets and the Afterlife: How They Communicate from the Other Side and More. That should be up in a couple of days.

 

Peace Out!

Pendulums vs. the Ouija Board

Pendulums. I have honestly never put too much thought into them. I do not own one and have never used one either. This doesn’t mean I have anything against them, it’s just that I’ve never really been introduced to them or read much about them. So since I’ve never given pendulums their moment in the spotlight here at the blog, perhaps it is time for that to change.

I’ve decided to leave you with three pendulum videos that I thought differed a bit in style or technique. I’m particularly interested and curious about the “conscious movement” described in the third video, in which he suggests teaching your body to move the pendulum. In the second video, she says she’s using telepathy and can “project” onto the pendulum. Is the idea supposed to be that the answers are coming from the practitioner in an unconscious way… or from your higher self? Are there people out there who believe spirits are controlling their pendulums? Feel free to fill me in.  

I was sent down this road tonight because recently I read in Janice Carlson’s book, Soul Sensing: How to Communicate With Your Dead Loved Ones, that she prefers the pendulum over the Ouija board, because she considers it a “board game” and not an “efficient means of communication with those in the afterlife.”

What do you think? Do I have any pendulum practitioners among my readers? And would you consider the pendulum to be any different from the Ouija or other divination tools?
