Hi everyone. Next week we have a fresh new season of our podcast starting with some interesting guests and topics, that I have really enjoyed organizing for you all. Of course whilst the show has been in a break, I have not. I’ve been really busy – interviewing, researching and putting the new season episodes together. Here is a sneak peak of some of the first four upcoming episodes in season five.
I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg.
Most of us go to work and don’t think too much about how our everyday life impacts on our work credibility. But for some of us this can be a very huge issue, especially if we are in the public eye and pretty well known in our field of work. Now imagine, if you went about your normal business and private life. You had never given the paranormal or other states of being much thought, or if you did, you dismissed it. You didn’t really believe in the paranormal, in the unseen realms. In the shadowlands, where things are mysterious and unexplained. It simply isn’t part of your day to day paradigm or way of thinking.
“Early on when we were working on the house outside, a gentleman who had lived here for almost 25 years saw us outside. He pulled in, came almost running over to us, and said “you guys know this house is haunted?”. Well we hadn’t really worked inside with it much, so my wife and I looked at each other – I had to bite my tongue because what I wanted to say, is that that explains the half-empty booze bottles we’re finding hidden in different parts of the house – but he seemed like a nice guy and I didn’t want to be rude….”
“When we first moved into the house I was actually sitting right where I’m sitting now, we had lived in the house maybe more than a week, and my wife ran into town to get groceries. It was after dark, and I heard footsteps in the hallway, approaching my office, and I stopped and I thought, is Diane home already? So I hollered out “hello?”, and the footsteps stopped, I went back to work, but the footsteps resumed. The steps came in through my office, cast a human sized shadow on the wall to my left, when it walked between the lamp on my desk in here. It got very cold, the steps when right beside me and into the formal parlour to my right. When I looked I didn’t see anything, but what I could not see with my eyes cast a very clear shadow, which I thought was rather odd.”
The Incubus & Succubus
You are in the safety of your bed. It is nighttime, when suddenly you are awakened from a very sexual dream, where you have seen yourself having sex with a most desirable woman or man, depending on your preference. For a minute you think oh, that was just one of those dreams and shut your eyes again to return to sleep. But then you realize that what you thought you were dreaming about, was actually happening to you right this minute. You are terrified as you realize that you have no control over what is happening to you. How do you fight something you cannot see, but most definitely can feel?
“….and it felt like something was trying to spread my legs open and grab my crotch! And I was like, I’ve never had that feeling before. That was so frickin’ weird! I would be laying there and it felt, literally felt as if somebody was fondling my breasts. and I could see my skin moving! Like the indentation of someone touching me and on my breasts. I could feel like a flutter, or like burning in between my legs. So it was very weird!”
“These are very traumatic. It doesn’t sound like it would be, it sounds like it would be something enjoyable. It’s not, it’s like being raped.”
“It’s hard to explain, but it’s like, I know him. Which makes it more terrifying – it is, because, I’ve never met anybody so absolutely soulless. So empty, and so cold. And absolutely so dark that it pierces you. It pierce’s every sense of your being. Absolutely the most terrifying thing I’ve ever encountered in my life….”
“…. and then I felt something hop into the bed lay behind me and cuddle into me in the spooning position. And I was like, Oh, my goodness. So I put my hand behind me, and it fell to the mattress. And then I put my arm back cap, but I still knew that there was something there.”
The Soul Sisters.
In 2014, Dr Kristy Sumner coupled her passion for travel, history and the paranormal when she formed Soul Sisters Paranormal, an all-female team, made up of Sumner, her two sisters and two friends. The investigators of Soul Sisters Paranormal travel to some of the most historic, and reportedly haunted, location in the U.S. in an attempt to determine for themselves if spirit activity does exist and to highlight the rich history of each location.
“I hold PHD, my twin sister has a PHD, as well. Both of those are in public administration with an emphasis on criminal justice. And then our younger sister has a Juris Doctorate, which is a lawyer. And then Cora, another friend of ours on the group, has her Juris Doctorate as well, and she’s also a lawyer. And then Kim has a master’s degree in education and a historical background. So we do approach it as a research based group.”
“Oh, absolutely. So you know again, we do have those – when you go into these cases especially for residential or business cases. Those that we’re called in to investigate. You know, the first thing that you want to do, is you want to inform the owner that yes you believe them. You believe, that they believe, that something is going on. And you either want to find evidence of what’s causing that, or you know, find evidence of paranormal.”
“…. it was just my sister and I and we’re doing an EVP session in the room where Ma and Fred were killed. And my question was, what happened in this room? And the spirit box – through the spirit box, it said, “Someone murdered us.” And I said, “Fred are you here?” And we got the name Fred. And, then another voice that said, “That was Kate.” And Kate was Ma Barker’s given name. So to us, to me, that is saying they murdered us in this room. They being the FBI. So for me that is their story. That is what Ma and Fred would want to convey, if they had the opportunity to tell their story. And that’s what I conveyed in my video. That this is what they believe that they were killed. They were murdered by the FBI.”
Actually spirit attachment is not as common as people think it is from all the TV shows and movies made showing such events. Being influenced, by lower level spirit however is. The attachments can be in varying degrees, from merely influencing, to full on controlling the person’s actions. These are always done without the person’s explicit consent.
“I just had this gut feeling right that something bad was going to happen. I didn’t know what it was. I just had this feeling….”
“And it got to the point where my cousin was doing heroin inside the house. And yeah, she was smoking weed. She was doing heroin. There was a huge fight between Mom, Dad, and my cousin and they were saying you need to leave. You need to get out. We don’t allow this in the house. So there was a railing and you could see down the stairs. And my cousin looked at me and I swear her eyes turned glossy black, and for a second she had horns. Like it was a split second. It was almost like you imagined it. But, I swear it was real. It was so real! And, she looked at me gave me this horrible, nasty, snarling look and I felt like she was going to hurt me! I just felt awful dread and like – I felt like I was in danger. Like even talking about it right now, I’m getting goose bumps.”
….and your brother was not like that? Didn’t suffer from depression prior to your cousin coming and living with you?
“He actually had an entire personality change and if you were to see pictures of him before, to pictures of him afterwards – and I showed my fiancé, and he said “That’s not your brother. That’s not, that’s not him.” He – He stopped eating. He had a…. It was horrible for my brother. My brother probably had it the worst and my brother, I think, is the most traumatic one for me to deal with as well.
So be sure and catch the first episode of our new season next week – I met a Ghost at Gettysburg, then regularly every two weeks after that. See you then.
