So You Think Your House is Haunted?

Image

You hear heavy footsteps in the middle of the night, knocks on the walls, voices coming from the kitchen when you’re the only one there, objects moving mysteriously, or your child sees a shadow man in their bedroom.

So you think your house is haunted?

I am a paranormal case manager and researcher and I help people and families in this situation all the time. Many are freaked out and scared, which is normal. Some are angry while others are just curious – and depending on your spiritual beliefs some may think it’s the “Devil” while others your Aunt Martha.

So what should you do?

First, keep a journal or diary of the activity. Write down dates, times, where it happened (what room), and what happened. Be SPECIFIC! Instead of saying, “My son John saw a shadow”, say – “My 10 y.o. son John saw the shadow of a 6ft tall man wearing a hat who was standing in the door on the north wall of his bedroom around 2AM.”.  The more details you write down the better we’ll be able to help you. Also write down a history – did you have experiences as a child? Have you lived in houses you considered haunted before? Do the same weird things happen from place to place? Did you ever play with an Ouija Board when you were a kid? Have you had psychic experiences?

Second – make sure to ask everyone in the house what they’ve been experiencing. You would be surprised how many people in a family do not talk and are surprised when they hear someone else has seen or heard the same thing. It is important to get everyone’s story – even if someone hasn’t experienced anything. If you have young children it can be more productive to ask them to make a drawing of what they’ve seen. When you do this do not be fearful or judgmental – it’s best to keep it positive and look for information – there are no wrong answers.

Third, there are many normal things which can be taken for something paranormal. So, being skeptical is good! That knocking on the wall can be a tree branch outside, or a rodent or animal in the wall, attic, or basement. Flickering lights or other electronic anomaly  can be caused by everything from power surges, bad switches, or a short, or even a heater/ac cycling on. A glass bowl or glass that shatters by itself can simply be the normal event of inherent stresses in the crystals in the glass reacting to temperature, vibration, or micro-cracks – or maybe it’s just time for it to fail.

Fourth, yes some activity can not be explained and often will form patterns which indicate something paranormal may be going on. Paranormal experiences can be scary! You might feel a heaviness, deep bone-chilling cold, goosebumps, and deep fear with the urge to scream or run. This is common and perfectly normal. When we encounter a spiritual energy our nervous systems can automatically react with a burst of fear and adrenaline with the fight-or-flight syndrome. So being scared is understandable and normal. You need to work on you and your family staying calm. Nothing is going to hurt you. I like to tell people that the vast majority of spirits are people you just can’t see – who are usually trying to be seen and heard, to get your attention, and they have no intention to hurt anyone.

Fifth – while it is fine to say to any spirits who may be around to “please not do that”, you should not investigate or record or take photos in your own home or attempt spirit communication (Ouija Boards, Pendulums, etc.) as that can make activity explode. Do not get angry, provoke, or pick a fight with things you cannot see. Be calm and respectful and strong. Contact a good paranormal team or expert to come in to investigate and document what may be going on in your home.

Finally – please realize and accept that unlike the movies, no one is going to save you. We’ll help you. You have to want and ask for help. You have to be willing to involve yourself and your family in following suggestions and doing things to help yourselves. You are the most powerful “tool” in resolving what is going on. Staying strong and calm, positive, with a sense of humor really really helps! For many people we work with it can be a deeply life-changing experience.

Spiritual Protection and Awareness: Mind, Body and Soul | Part 1-The Physical Body

This article, originally for my lecture on Demonology and Spiritual Protection, is meant to give ideas and insight into the many possibilities that exist when one seeks to attain heighten states of consciousness, connections with the Divine, or simply to keep themselves safe from the unwanted disruption of discordant or malevolent energies which may wish to distract or break one’s connection with the divine.  I hold no grudges towards these energies because they are merely doing what I believe God has placed them here to do; to challenge us, each in our own ways, to be better, to become more Divinely connected (through spirituality, religion, belief) and to make ourselves more disciplined in promoting positive thoughts and emotions, thus raising our vibrations to match what some would call “The God Source” or what I would deem a vibration of heightened awareness and love.  As I find myself getting older and learning more, I find that this particular section of my lecture is the area which gains more ground each and every time I talk.  I’m hoping to give the people I speak with ideas that they can use and resonate with which will help them find not only their own inner strength, but a connection to whatever Divine source they believe in.

Ouija Boards – Play at your Peril

Use of the Ouija falls into the long and ancient practice of mediumistic spirit writing. Ouija had a predecessor in medieval China (1100 AD) with practice of Fuji or “planchette writing” using a planchette to communicate with spirits of the Dead – this practice was later a forbidden. The Ouija Board was first introduced as a commercial product by Elijah Bond in 1890 as a parlor game. Years later a young child, Peral Curran, used a Spirit Board and made contact with a Spirit who called herself “Patience Worth”. She subsequently became the subject of several best-selling books and later was a famous Spiritulist-Medium -this widely popularized the Ouija Board’s use during the era of World War I and the American Spiritualist movment. The Ouija Board became very popular in America from the 1920’s – 1960’s when it was widely marketed as a toy as it still is today.

Angels & Gifts

I have been raised a God fearing woman.  All my life, I was taught to believe and live by the Holy Bible.  I have sinned, and I have repented, been saved and sinned again.  I am human, not perfect and very curious to experience all of what life is about.  Through all of this, and the many trials and tribulations I have faced, I have come to realize that the cliche statement, “everything happens for a reason” is true.

Magical And Protective Uses Of Minerals And Gemstones – UPDATED 01/13/13

Each culture and spiritual path has its own set of tools and rituals when it comes to spiritual protection. Egyptians used stones to signify their practice. Carnelian and Lapis Lazuli adorned the breast plates and necklaces of the priests and priestess for the temples. It signified them as spiritual figureheads and aided them in their work. For as long as their history goes, Native Americans considered Father Sky (Creator) and Mother Earth (Nurturer) to be active participants in one’s daily life. With such respect for all things on earth, it was not unheard of for Medicine Men to ask their brothers and sisters of the earth (rocks, minerals, etc) to help them in any number of different practices. In more recent years, New Age guru’s and an array of spiritual healers utilize Stones, Gems and Minerals in their practices of balancing the bodies Auric fields, thus helping to regulate the flow of energy (chi, prana, etc) in and around the body so as to maximize the body’s ability to heal itself. In short, Medicine Men, Healers, Occultists and Spiritualists work with these minerals and gems to aid and enhance healing, protective, physical and psychical energies. It is said that the user of the crystal or mineral can implant or “charge” the crystal with their intentions or some goal that they have for the natural energies of the stone. Obviously it is in the best interest of the user to obtain a stone or crystal that has natural abilities on par with those which are intended during the imprinting process, but I have known Magi, Medicine Men and Healers to use any stone at their disposal if the need arises.
