Anything paranormal going on in your world?

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.

What paranormal events are going on in your life?

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!

 

I’ll go first.

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.)

 

And here’s one more.

Black Hole, Big 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. 

 

YOUR TURN!

Thanksgiving Ouija Session 2013

From our Second Annual Thanksgiving Ouija Session

 

Mom and I sat down for our 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Ouija Session. We hit record, sat in silence for a quick prayer/meditation, and then began. 

“We would like to request assistance from angels, guides… to guide us in communicating with any spirits or entities from the light that would like to communicate with us tonight, through the Ouija board, or the recorder, or through the spirit box. We’d like to learn from the Other Side, learn about the Other Side, or to receive any messages from loved ones, or spirits who would like to help us… from the light.” 

We asked all of the typical questions for initiating spirit contact and gave plenty of time for response. We also encouraged communication through sounds, knocks, speaking, etc. Mom suggested blowing out a candle. 

“I want you to be able to communicate in the best way that you can, so if that’s not moving this planchette on the Ouija board, then you can knock, or speak, or make a noise. Can you let us know somehow that you’re here and willing to communicate?”

We kept the session light and even started up some general conversation while we were waiting. I encouraged spirit to give us suggestions or advice to make communication easier or more successful.

No activity. No responses.  

After fifteen minutes, I turned on a “new” spirit box, formerly owned by Stephen Hill, investigator and author of Something Unseen. Many of the same questions were asked again, including requests to say our names, before and after saying them aloud. 

Our spirit box session lasted approximately 17 minutes. 

After an initial review of all audio, no EVP were heard. During the spirit box session, a few possible “hello” responses could be considered, and several unimpressive quick snippet responses that didn’t last longer than one or two clicks or stations. 

We gave the Ouija board one more try for just a few minutes before once again asking for feedback and suggestions on making communication easier or more successful. 

No activity. No responses. 

“Thank you for your energy and your presence. Thank you to any spirits who were here trying to communicate with us. And thank you to our guides for protecting us and helping.”

 

Hope you weren’t disappointed. Better luck next time? At least we got some pretty pictures out of the session, right? For last year’s Thanksgiving session, check out A Very Ouija Thanksgiving

Thankful for the Completely Normal…

On this Thanksgiving Eve, I find myself having not much to say. Oh, I’ve got plenty to say, just nothing that would be on topic for this blog. No strange experiences. No intuition that I can proudly say I jumped on. No spirit visits. No cool dreams to discuss. No rapping on the walls, unless you count the front porch light that I broke hanging Christmas lights last weekend. It is currently swinging in the wind. No investigations. No deep thoughts or opinions on the last book I just finished. No EVP to share. (Of course, that would require me actually conducting an EVP session, or even finishing analysis of the joint bilocation experiment with Randy Keller. I’d better get on it, though… or he’ll have spectacular spirit voices from me after he kills me.) 

Sure. It would be nice to be able to report on some paranormal experiences, but I suppose I should be very thankful for so many things in my life that are completely normal. And I am. 

I hope to conduct a second annual Thanksgiving Ouija session, though. I’ll let you know if we experience any activity.

 

How about a few photo updates?

 

This year’s Christmas Tree…

 

A few random favorite things…

A few new candle holders. I love them! Perfect for a seance or Ouija session, don't you think?

A few new candle holders. The two on the ends came from Garden Ridge. The one in the center is a few years old and was from Pier One Imports. I love them together! Perfect for a séance or Ouija session, don’t you think?

 

Just one of the new coffee flavors that I'm absolutely loving right now for the season. My other current favorites are

Thankful…

Meril decided to curl up with me this morning as I read Chip Coffey's book.
