Who opened that door?! Nothing is not the opposite of everything.

It has been way too long since I last wrote to you. A lot of things, some exciting, have been going on lately in my personal and work life. And because of all of the craziness, I’ve not been able to tell you about some very interesting activity that I experienced a couple of weeks ago. It left me scratching my head… and I loved every minute of it. 

I had been working on putting together the recent Learn How to Record EVP: The Session episode of the Big Séance Podcast. I worked on it quite a bit for several days. Some weird things eventually began happening over those couple of days, including me and the dog hearing some out of the ordinary knocks and noises, the dog acting stranger than usual, an incident involving lights in the basement, and finishing off with the following incredible moment:

I have a cabinet in the room where I’m sitting right now. It’s a cabinet that means a lot to me because it was built for my Grandma Keller by my father when he was in high school. It’s basically a bookshelf with two wood-framed doors that have glass so that you can see the contents of the shelf. It also happens to be where I keep several of my spirit communication tools, meters, digital audio recorders, spirit boxes, etc. If you’re familiar with my old yearbook collection from the 1920s, those are in this cabinet as well. I believe I was editing the show notes for the EVP episode when I heard a door of the cabinet pop open. I turned my head just in time to see the dog run away out of fear, and the left door coming to a stop from being swung open.

I want you to know that I’m kicking myself for not immediately jumping into an EVP session right there. I did, however, attempt communication, asked if they were visiting to help with my EVP efforts, and made a request for a few other signs to confirm a presence. I got none.

If you know me, you know I’d never jump to the conclusion that this was paranormal… however, I know my dog didn’t and couldn’t have opened this door. Is it possible that it wasn’t securely latched and somehow snapped open? Absolutely, though I’ve never once witnessed it.

Before everyone comments that I need to have my home blessed due to evil entities, or a poltergeist, slow waaaaaay down. I had just had an EVP session an hour or two earlier. My spirit communication experiments involve requesting and inviting the presence of spirits and loved ones from the other side. That’s what I do. I don’t go running from them or shooing them away when they show up. Part of me wonders if someone was just late to the party and they wanted me to know that they were there. The cabinet that was opened housed spirit communication devices. Was that a sign? Possibly. And what about the strange activity that happened in the days just before this event? The same spirit or energy? My (and the dog’s) imagination? A really early arrival for the EVP session?

And now for the part that will frustrate many of you. I haven’t analyzed this EVP session yet.

No unusual activity since then.

To be continued…

 

Tonight I leave you with some very poetic words that I came across at about the same time of this experience. Poetry doesn’t resonate with me often, but this really stuck with me. 

Nothing is not the opposite of everything. 
Dark is not the opposite of light. 
Good is not the opposite of bad. 
They are all the same coin, 
the head is inseparable from the tail. 
Yin is entirely dependent on Yang to exist. 
All opposites arise and fall away together.
So, running away also running toward.
Silence is sound, stillness is movement.
Nothing is everything.

–Mike Jenkins 

 

 


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

Sad Bronze Angel in the Snow, Bellefontaine Cemetary, St. Louis

 

Suffering 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!
