We’ve been in our current home for over 16 years now. The paranormal activity started the night we moved in and has increased to a malevolent nature over the years.

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.
To truly begin understanding how to protect, cleanse, banish, exorcise, or even more simply communicate with any sort of spiritual energy, it is important to know what types of spirits you may face.

Most people believe in ghosts, the obvious first choice for other-worldly contact, but in some circumstances (more frequent each year), other forces which exhibit less human qualities, are found helping or plaguing some of the cases that we have dealt with.
