Investigating Our Own Home, or “I never believed in orbs before, but…”

Photo #4 – “Orb Chain” Anomaly

Light in the Dark Paranormal recently investigated the home of two of its members. While this is not recommended, the two resident ghost-hunters already knew of the existence of ghosts in their house, and felt it was about time to formally introduce themselves.

Photo #1- no orbs; flash off

Photo #1-small orb (not camera flash reflection); flashlight off

The above image was taken as a still photo during a sweep of the second floor loft while conducting a flashlight communication session (the flash can be seen on the island in the middle). The team had succeeded in getting whoever was there to turn the flashlight on and off in response to their questions (we have an unedited video of this session on YouTube).

At the same time, one team member was conducting an EVP session with her digital recorder, with the recording revealing an unexplained knocking sound. This sound + the flashlight activating itself + the above photo taken all at the same time demonstrate what we feel to be from a single paranormal event.  It was recorded by three different investigators using three types of recording media (video, audio recorder and a still camera) all starting and stopping on the same timeline.

Photo #2- no orbs; flash on

Photo #2- small orb; flash on

The large photo above reveals a an anomaly appearing in the right center of the image, and seems to be emanating from behind the stove in the kitchen area. You can click on this photo to obtain a separate larger image (we suggest blowing it up to maximum size to see the detail of the phenomenon). Upon closer examination, note what appears to be a series of interlocking orbs! They seem to be contained within a tube or conduit of some sort, whose source seems to be from just behind the oven door, and whose other end tapers off into a dissolve. If this were a hair or other piece of debris on the camera lens, it would be in front of and covering the background, not coming from it, and the end of it would be definite, not fading away.

Photo #3- orbs visible; flash off

Photo #3- orbs; flash off

This anomaly was not present in the photo taken seconds before it, nor in any taken seconds after (each photo is numbered in the order taken). Also note the presence of the more traditional “orbs” of the type observed by many investigators over the years. These began to appear in the prior and subsequent photos, but then they too disappeared.

One of the advantages of investigating your own home is that you get to go back and validate what you might have documented earlier. In this case, we took the same series of photos the next day at exactly the same time during similar outside weather. No phenomenon whatsoever was present (one of the disadvantages of investigating your own home is that you have to go to sleep there after your investigation, regardless of what you may have riled up).

We discussed our investigation the following Sunday with Rob Henry and Jason Olivo, hosts of Living Paranormal on the web. To listen to the entire show, which includes some amazing EVP’s recorded in previous investigations at other locations, click here to hear an archived version.

Also tuned into the show that night was acclaimed psychic medium Reverend Robyne Marie. Using her technique of photo scrying, where Robyne claims that she can actually see live spirits present in a photo, she said the following about ours as she studied it during the show:

We have physical bodies walking through here . . . remote viewing.

I saw the main character and all the other bodies with them. This is their heaven. So many of them together . . . we have doppelgangers! They mimic you.

Is Hell Really Down There Somewhere?

16 Sep
From time to time, I have some pretty interesting online conversations with Beverly. She has been communicating with the spirit world for some 35 years now, and publishes her own blog, Welcome to ghost talk blog  A forum for spiritual topics, spirit communication, Near Death Experiences, ghost stories, UFOs, and all things paranormal…Anyway, I think some of the comments we are trading back and forth on her blog (and hers on mine) might be of interest to our visitors here.  I urge you to visit her to read everything she writes about, which is extensive.  But here I can give you some tantalizing bits of conversation regarding various topics.  In this case, Bev wrote about a gentleman who had quite the experience with a demon. Here’s the most recent serve from my side of the court…

Bev, at your suggestion, I went back and read Sean’s personal accounts. He appears sincere and insightful, and I don’t doubt any of his stories. You ask if I have had any experience with investigations where there were no measurable results in spite of credible witnesses to the contrary? Luckily for our group, we have yet to have done an investigation where we didn’t have at least something to pore over. But I know of groups who have come away empty, even some of those seen on tv.

I think the explanation is this:  the manifestation of paranormal phenomenon is transient to be sure. It could be that on the particular night the investigation was done, the ghosts were busy elsewhere! One of the eternal questions about them is where the heck are they when they’re not present?

Here’s another take on this: if indeed perception of them depends on some person having some degree of clairvoyance or other such ability in order to experience the phenomenon, and if a typical ghost hunting group has no such person in it, then that may be why on occasion nothing is perceived or measured unless its “very present,” at least to their equipment. Most such groups I know of boast of having no psychics, sensitives, etc. in order to allegedly bolster their scientific objectivity. That’s nonsense, of course, as folks with abilities have long been the subject of scientific research going back to the 50’s (prior to that time, such people were seen in more of a theatrical context, like the seances popular in the 30’s & 40’s during the Spiritualist movement).

In Sean’s case, his investigators seem to have done a terrible job. Even if they found nothing, they should never have dismissed his experiences, and at the very least should have offered to come back another time. Perhaps they really did see something that scared their pants off and wanted to make a quick exit!

I could go on and on about things like portals, old wells and other subterranean doorways to strange worlds, but I’ll spare you. Is Hell really down there somewhere?

Hose Co. No.3 Fire Museum Investigation

6 Feb
the Museum

the Museum

Last Fall, we investigated what was once called Hose Company No. 3, an old firehouse in downtown Pueblo, Colorado.  Active for many years as a source of protection and informal community center for the city, it is now a museum dedicated to the life and memories of the brave firemen who worked there, including those who died in the line of duty.  Do their ghosts haunt their former workplace to this day?

One of our investigators is Terry Milsom, a former volunteer firefighter. He had suggested that we investigate the many strange goings-on reported at the Museum, and contacted curator Mark Pickerel, himself a Pueblo firefighter.  A few weeks later we arrived for our investigation, and Mark told us about the history of the station and the paranormal events that have occurred there.

Several other investigations have been done by different groups over the past few years, including the Haunted Collector folks.  Now it was our turn.  Rather than repeat what I have already written in our Field Report to Mark, what follows is an excerpt that cuts to the chase…

Discussion/Analysis of Investigation:

Weather and time of day had no influence on the investigation, but certain environmental conditions did. The building was half-surrounded by hi-tension power lines. Within15 feet of the north and east sides of the exterior walls these power sources were emitting heavy EMF radiation which penetrated the building interior as measured by our baseline sweep of the building. When we later took K2 readings in the UL bunkroom while trying to talk to whoever might have been there, we continued to get these same readings while close to the windows, but also slightly weaker readings in the more interior space of the room. These appeared to coincide with questions we were asking, but could have been the same random energy fluctuations from the power lines penetrating the room. Because of this electromagnetic field contamination, we have to disregard any other EMF readings captured in the building.

Also, we note that there was no other evidence of a paranormal presence in that particular room other than 2 EVP’s recorded there by Louise & Adrian. 3 more EVP’s were recorded elsewhere in the building.

Before we discuss these EVP’s in detail, let’s discuss other possible evidence. The video clips noted in #1 above we will dismiss as inconclusive, unless the host can give us an additional explanation or insight. Of the photos taken, none showed anything paranormal. What we’re left with are the EVP’s. But we also must note that considerable acoustic contamination (sound spillover) was an ongoing problem due to not only the traffic outside the front door, but the existence of the firepole toward the front interior. Since it had to run unobstructed from the UL down to the LL, there was a considerable “hole” in the floor so firemen could pass through it. This allowed sound from our team upstairs in the bunkroom to easily drift down to be heard by our team on the LL, and vice versa. This kind of spillover can easily contaminate the results of an audio recording (are we hearing a paranormal entity or us?).

While we dismiss any other video or EMF readings as inconclusive or the result of natural causes, we do maintain that the following EVP’s are evidence of possible paranormal phenomena.

EVP #1 (Class A): Toward the end of the investigation, Paul & Louise are downstairs near the firepole, recording both on audio and video in an attempt to contact whoever might be down there. Louise felt that there was. 1:24 into the audio track of the Pocket Cam video recorder carried by PH, we hear a faint but clear voice of a small child (boy?) saying Get Mom.

This seemed to be in response to Louise asking about the time where a mother brought her nearly drowned boy to the fire station for help, as the story goes. The boy died at the station. Louise said, “…over 100 years ago; just wondering what had happened.” Less than 10 sec later, we hear the EVP on the recorder which neither Louise nor Paul heard with their own ears.  Listen to EVP (you may want to use earphones; the EVP is clear but faint).

EVP #2 (Class A): On the same Pocket Cam session at 3:57, Paul asks if the “person” we were trying to talk to is the same person who Louise & Adrian contacted earlier upstairs in the bunkroom. No response was recorded on the Pocket Cam audio track. But on Louise’s audio recorder, which she was using at the same time standing next to Paul, one can clearly hear the response of “No” to his question.  Listen to EVP

EVP #3 (Class A): Earlier, in the bunkroom in the UL, Louise & Adrian were recording an attempt to contact whoever might have been in that room, using Louise’s recorder. Adrian is talking, and asks if the “person” would like them to stay and talk for awhile longer. An emphatic “No” is clearly heard.  Listen to EVP

EVP #4 (Class A): Later, towards the end of the investigation, Louise was by herself down in the LL. She had her recorder in the “ON/Voice Activated” mode, which means that the unit would start recording only when something was “heard” by the recorder. She was not talking to anyone, and noticed the voice activation light go “on” on the unit. She heard nothing herself, and about 4 sec later asked “Is there someone here?” When she reviewed this session later in the kitchen, she heard an unidentified voice starting the voice-activated part of the recording (when the light went on).It said “There’s someone here.” 4 sec later, she heard on the very next voice-activated recording her own voice asking “Is there someone here?” The first voice was definitely not Louise’s, nor was it Adrian’s who was not with her at the time. But it sounded like a woman’s voice.  Listen to EVP

EVP #5 (Class B): Louise and Adrian’s first session was carried out in the UL bunkroom. The audio recorder was on voice-activation, and when the question/answer session was reviewed, the very first word heard was “Dies!” in response to nothing said by the investigators. Though non-interactive, it was said in a clear, harsh male voice, and the meaning of this word could have been a noun rather than a verb, e.g., “Dyes,” if it was a proper name.  Listen to EVP
(the EVP is at the very beginning of the clip).

Summary

The “hotspots” in the Hose Co. #3 Fire Museum were near the firepole in the lower level and the bunkroom upstairs. Previous investigations and stories indicated that the Chief’s office and the top of the stairs had paranormal activity, but we noted none there on the night we investigated. The evidence we captured was strictly in the form of EVP’s (electronic voice phenomena) caught on our digital audio recordings, although there are other modalities through which hauntings are typically evaluated.

Is the Museum haunted? Based on our findings, we would say “Yes,” as the EVP’s were of high quality and unlikely to have been produced by any coincidental natural source. Based on those, we could conjecture that there are at least 4 different entities or residues of past lives present in the building: 2 adult males, 1 adult female, and 1 male (?) child. We were unable to associate any names with them, though one male may have been a “Dyes.” A child and perhaps his mother may have been present. Was this the child who died of drowning after being brought to the station by his mom (“Get Mom”)? Is he trapped in time, unaware of his passing and still looking for his mother?

We would like to return for a follow up investigation, if for no other reason than to free the spirit of this poor child from his earthly confines. There are methods for doing that, including calling in someone who specializes in such transitions.

Did previous investigations and activities manage to reduce or increase the paranormal activity that has been reported over the years? We don’t know. But in the meantime, the Museum in all probability still remains haunted by the presence of those firemen and other people who lived, worked, or died in the line of duty.
