Watching last night’s episode of Haunted Highway, where the team investigated a sunken cemetery at the Island of Lost Souls in the Dry Tortugas, I picked up one thing this team has mentioned that might be incorrect. They seem to think poltergeist activity is malicious or aggressive activity that comes from angry ghosts. From my understanding, a poltergeist is an entity created by someone living, not dead. Usually someone with psychic abilities (which most people possess but don’t utilize) who is angry, depressed, or suffering in some way, creates this energy from their distress. It becomes a separate entity from the living person and can grow larger, stronger, and more powerful as it merges with other negative energy in which it comes into contact. The dead are not poltergeists. I may be wrong, but that is what I have picked up in my travels.
In spite of that minor detail, I was excited to see this team back in action, especially Jack Osbourne who was diagnosed with MS in the middle of shooting last season. He looks none the worse for wear and appears to be coping well. Let’s hope Syfy does not splice this into a mini season.
If you are celebrating Thanksgiving in the States, enjoy and pace yourself. Honor your ancestors. Have a Paranormal Thanksgiving!
If you are new to ghost hunting, know this:
Photos of full body apparitions never come out this clearly. Ever.
This photo, supposedly taken in a New Jersey cemetery, was proven to be a hoax.
Horror and paranormal writers: Dying to write where Stephen King crafted The Shining? Here’s your chance. October 2014
What a fabulous idea!
Author Scott Nicholson posted this link on Facebook. If you haven’t read any of Scott’s books, you’re missing out. He’s written more than 20 horror and paranormal novels out there, including a Box of Boo series for under $3. Get thee to Amazon.
These photos are creepy, and glimpse of what the world will look like once we are all gone. The spooky part is imagining all the life that once was, and now gone. The sheer amount of effort and energy it took to build these places is staggering. Hit the link at the bottom.
Yesterday the psychic community lost a pioneer. Sylvia Browne might not have been everyone’s cup of tea, but she did a lot of good in the world, helping people better understand the afterlife. Her personality was big and she had a lot of critics. I was a fan of her early writings at the beginning of my spiritual journey. When she became popular, her work grew too commercial for my tastes and I found other teachers. She and I shared a birthday and I am grateful for her teachings and perseverance. Perhaps she’ll give us a shout-out from “The Other Side.” Hold the door open for us, Sylvia.
If you have any paranormal enthusiasts who are hard-to-shop-for on your Christmas list, might I suggest…their very own ghost town?
