What You Need To Know About Doomsday 2012


Written by Pit Rubens




12-21-2012 is the day when our dear entire world will take its last breath. Not only this, the exact predicted time is 11.11 GMT. The Mayan calendar states this fact about the end of the planet on the 21st December 2012. A lot of findings have also predicted situations similar to doomsday.

NASA has predicted a massive explosion will hit the earth in 2012 and also the reason is stated as the collision between asteroids and comets. Even the sun is getting hotter plus the emission of rays and gases can be intense as well as the planet may well burn as well. The sun has the tendency to attract and dissolve planets and this can become true in they year 2012. Individuals are getting a little scared, but the reality is unbelievable at times. You ought to have observed how the whole globe is changing as well as the patterns are comparable on the findings in predictions. A lot of times, we ignore a call, but it can be incredibly properly mentioned in all religious scriptures that the globe has an end.

Also According to the teachings of the Bible, when specific events have come to pass, an immense meteor, asteroid or comet will smash into our excellent and beautiful planet Earth. If we pay attention to what is disclosed to us inside the Book of Revelations we will discover that this event is extremely close to occurring.

The end of the entire world might not be on 21st December 2012 but there has to be an end otherwise. This makes individuals much more jittery. The surface from the earth is becoming much more hot as compared to a century ago.

When you go back to your basic sources, it says that conditions were same in the formation of the entire world, as it's in the predictions of the end of the planet. 12-21-2012 may perhaps be the end of nature, but again the point lies in your belief. Persons may well give facts and figures, but being educated, you have to analyze things yourself.


Zodiac Sign Changed? Three Reasons To Check It Out

Written by Bob Meeler


The buzz is out regarding whether our zodiac sign has changed or not? If so, this would pose a huge impact and shift for many people who were accustomed to their astrology sign. Thus, it's important to actually learn more about these Zodiac signs. Endeavoring to succeed with learning more about your Zodiac sign isn't an exception. Being well-advised and using a good plan can be important elements in whether a person does something correctly and succeed, or apply it wrong and fail. Failing to attempt this correctly can lead to disastrous consequences. You can actually end up reading about false report about yourself, and perhaps take those reading seriously.

Listed here are a trio of tips to avoid that sort of failure, and succeed.

To start with, understand most horoscopes and finding about whether your zodiac sign changed or not, is pure entertainment.

You are going to need to conduct more research on your background, because that can help you to avoid further issues. Failing to get this done may cause you to interpret these readings as concrete facts. So do not make the mistake of ignoring this crucial step!

Next, try to learn different signs and compare it to yours

Almost as essential as understanding that most horoscopes and finding about whether your zodiac sign changed or not, is pure entertainment when you are attempting to succeed at learning of the different signs, you'll see many similarities between them . I am here to tell you, you don't want to overlook this. It can help to not panic in case the zodiac signs actually change, and everyone involved in asking their fortune teller if their reading is accurate or not. Who wants the wrong information?

Lastly, it helps to research more on the web the history of Zodiac signs

Finally, when focusing on your own understanding of your sign you want to be sure you are examining your own life's path first and taking these zodiac reading with a grain of salt. This tends to help with reliving the anxiety in case you get a bad reading, that's a significant element of fear for something for entertainment purposes. Failing that could mean you might not realize horoscopes are meant to guide you to safety and just for fun. And I imagine that we could be in agreement this wouldn't be good if you take them too seriously.

As mentioned above, when you want to succeed at interpreting your zodiac sign correctly, you want to be certain you never make some mistakes that can cause you to wind up reading about false report about yourself, or maybe even taking those reading too seriously. What you want is a balance view knowing horoscope readings are just for fun, and you may achieve that by being attentive to the tips above.

The Roswell UFO Crash: A New Lead and a New Direction



It’s been nearly sixty years since the crash of an alleged Alien Spacecraft near Roswell, NM. Despite a multitude of credible civilian and military witnesses who claim the object and its occupants were from another world, we still lack absolute proof. As a result, researchers trying to solve this puzzle constantly hope for two things: Actual physical evidence and reliable witnesses.


Because the Roswell Crash took place in 1947, the likelihood of turning up any new first hand witnesses to the crash, military investigation or cover-up fades with each year that passes. The same may be said of physical evidence. Even if somebody found a shoe box full of metal or other strange material from the crash stashed in their attic, they might not even know what it was. That leaves the possibility of second or third hand witnesses.


While it’s easy to dismiss witnesses who didn’t actually experience the crash or aftermath, they can often provide serious researchers with some tidbit of information that can lead to more later. Recently, I was contacted by a man living in California who I’ll call Al. After listening to the late Colonel Philip Corso (author of ‘The Day after Roswell’) speak about events surrounding the Roswell UFO Crash on a late night radio show, Al began to give some thought to something that had occurred earlier in his life.


Al moved to San Francisco, California, in 1964. Sometime in the winter of 1964-65, he was set up on a blind date with ‘a good-looking young blond woman.’ While he could not recall her name or where they went on the date, he did remember an unusual conversation they had at the end of the evening.


Although the two didn’t hit it off romantically, they did seem to enjoy talking with one another. The topics included philosophy, astronomy and science fiction. All very popular themes of the day. At some point the young woman asked Al if he believed in the existence of other life forms or Alien life in the Universe. Al said he did and gave a few reasons why, which included the size of the Universe and the common scientific probabilities of the day. The young woman almost immediately gave affirmation to Al by saying something like, “Yea, you’re right,” and followed up with a most amazing story.


Al’s date began her narrative by explaining that she was the daughter of an Air Force Chaplain. The family lived in Roswell and her father was serving on the Base known as Roswell Army Air Field in 1947 (later named Walker Air Force Base in 1949). Although he cannot recall the actual calendar date or day of the week, the young woman told him that sometime during dinner two men came to the door to get her dad. She recalled hearing them tell him that his services were needed. The incident caused such a stir in the household that everyone stayed up late until he returned.


Seeing that everyone was still awake, the Chaplain told his family that he was called to give religious comfort to some sort of Alien Life Forms near what seemed to be an Alien Spacecraft. At least two of four creatures were still alive when he got there. He described them as looking a bit like adolescent boys, but obviously not human. No one knew what the creatures were or precisely how to care for them. As a result, all of the beings eventually perished. That was the crux of the story.


Al would have been seven and the young woman would have been around five years of age at the time of the Roswell UFO Crash. Despite her young age, one can assume that this event left a huge impression on her and was probably discussed a number of times over the years by one or more family members. Either way, she seemed to recall enough of the story to share it with her date.


As an experienced paranormal investigator, I know that you can second guess almost any story into oblivion. This is the way of most skeptics. They merely tinker with stories, evidence or witnesses until the believable becomes unbelievable. That is not what I will do here. Instead, I will consider the possibilities.


Although there are many missing pieces from this story, it has one shining asset. Al provides a fascinating new direction for Roswell UFO Crash researchers. I never thought to include a Chaplain in the mix of characters who were a part of the military response to the Roswell Crash. It’s easy to forget that people tended to be much more religious in those days. It’s also worthwhile to remember that no one expected an alien spacecraft to fall out of the sky and into a world that wasn’t ready for such an event.


While it might seem hard to imagine that a Chaplain would be considered important enough to be summoned in the manner he was for such an event, it gets easier if you consider the military mindset. When it comes to any branch of the armed services, it was and still is all about preparedness. We have to assume that some sort of short list of first responders for emergencies was always available to Officers on duty.


Despite the unusual nature of the vehicle and occupants which crashed near Roswell, the initial reaction of the military reveals an almost textbook response to what might otherwise have been considered to be something like a plane crash. The local funeral home was contacted for coffins and/or services, a military investigator and recovery crew was sent out to do their job and the press was duly notified. Given the religious beliefs and values of that time, it would not be unexpected to find a Military Chaplain being made available to those on the scene of a disaster.


Under normal circumstances, it probably wouldn’t be that difficult to track down the names of Military Chaplains serving at the Roswell Army Air Field in 1947. However, the task becomes very complicated because the base was home to military aircraft given the mission of carrying Atomic Bombs and personnel were involved in the retrieval and cover-up of a crashed Alien Spacecraft. Anyone who has ever visited Roswell or tried to follow the paper trail back to 1947 knows that peripheral information is everywhere, but tracing down specific information is difficult and the results are not always reliable.


Despite the hardships of verifying a story like this one, the new direction provided opens up a whole new world of possibilities. After all, Chaplains are not just military personnel, but have ties to mainline faiths. It’s possible that the Chaplain involved shared some information with other Chaplains or religious leaders, in addition to his immediate family, before the lid was clamped down or he was ordered to keep quiet. Al’s blind date of forty years ago may prove to be another important piece in the Roswell puzzle.

Doctors and lawyers decided to be vampires at night?!



The movie Twilight gets new and new parts, gets millions admirers all around the world, the story is attracting wide human masses in a time when could be said that the mystery around this appearance should not be so captivating when there are so many interesting contemporary things. Its the same with the zombies, in a time when no one has reported that has seen a real one, appear Zombie Survival Guides, there are numerous zombie games and movies, organize mass zombie dances or walks when people are dressing themselves as undead and act like that


Maybe this looks little bit weird but its not so weird if we compare it with the study of Idaho State University sociologist D.J. Williams. According to the researches of this high scholar for subculture, there is some vampire mania spreading around the world. Its not about admiring vampire movies or something like that but is some thing more serious. Williams says that there are "self-identified vampires" that concern them selves as followers of Dracula. As he says many doctors or lawyers, people on respected positions turn into vampires at night, seeking for blood-sharing relationships.



It is affirmed that besides them, there are number of people that actually want their blood to be sucked.

Williams explains that these "self-identified vampires" conceive the people as a mixture of light and dark side. In public has been showing the socially desirable self, the side that people accept to see, but also there is a negative, not so nice, side of everyone. Everyone tries to hide this side but the vampires acknowledge it and try to manage it.



This scholar continues that "self-identified vampires" are actually looking for significant persons that have excess of energy. They are often in a relationship with their donor and a combination of a person with an abundance of energy and a person with energy blockages gives a perfect symbiotic relationship. The blood its been sucked from a small incision made high up on the chest by a scalpel.



Williams who took years for the scholar in forensic social work, criminal justice and leisure sciences, says that there are not arguments that this is illegal because its about an arrangement between two consenting adults and aims to have no ill effect.



If these approaches are true, its about social phenomenon that will take many years to be accepted. Maybe the perpetrator should be found in the director of  Twilight  that has made vampires to look so attractive and so cool.

Real Ghosts, Ghost Hunting, and Quantum Physics

One of the benefits of a lifetime of afterlife communication is that I know a lot about ghosts  what they are and what there not. For instance, there not caught between worlds. And they don't need us to help them move on. There exactly where there supposed to be. You don't honestly think that God, the Creator of the Universe, would leave their eternal fate in your and my hands, do you?

You CAN say that they are earthbound, but that's because their consciousness never left the earth. And when you die, yours wont either. Were all right here together forever. That's just the nature of the afterlife. Yes, knowing the laws of the afterlife can make these things a lot clearer.

Lately, Ive been researching what folks believe about ghosts and haunting s. Ive investigated the investigations. Repeatedly Ive read, We don't use Ouija boards, seances, mediums or occult methods. Yet its common for ghost researchers to accept, as an underlying condition of their investigations, the erroneous claims of psychics, mediums, and channels.

Im referring to such concepts as caught between worlds, unfinished business earthbound souls, and ghost children in distress. At the same time ominous warnings urge vigilant caution in case non-human demons and malevolent entities are encountered. Oh, and don't forget the Hollywood expression, "Go to the light." Scientific research cant be conducted properly on a foundation of superstition.

Let me tell you some things that are true about ghosts. Actually there are only two kinds of ghosts: real and not-real.

The real ghosts are everywhere. There in your home, in your car, in your school, and in your dreams. Ghost researchers call these interactive ghosts. I call them soul-ghosts, or disincarnate souls. I don't care for the term, disembodied because they do have a body. We just cant see it for the same reason that we cant see sound waves and ultraviolet light. There outside the range of our sentient boundary.

Soul-ghosts are interactive. They reach out to you, and you feel no fear  absolutely none. They envelop you in a blanket of warm fuzzes. Real ghosts can be mistaken for angels. This isn't a paranormal experience. Its a supernatural and spiritual experience.

The not-real ghosts seem to be everywhere too, but only for people that believe they exist, or at least believe that they might exist. They rarely bother unbelievers. Ghost researchers call the not-real ghosts  residual ghosts. These ghosts seem to defy the Law of Conservation of Matter and Energy because they pop in and out of existence like virtual particles. The appearance of this type of ghost can be explained by quantum physics. From the Copenhagen Interpretation, which states that nothing is real until you look at it, to the holographic theory of the universe, all ghosts abide by the laws of quantum physics.

People that experience residual ghosts say that they seem to be caught in a time-loop replaying the same scene over and over. The above mentioned physics also apply to residual ghosts but with the addition of Schrodingers equations. For every now that we experience, a positive wave flows into the future and a negative wave flows into the past like concentric ripples created by a rock thrown into a pond.

The fact that some people experience residual ghosts is due to normal functions of human consciousness. Although some might rather think of it as a glitch. Residual ghosts are unusual and fascinating experiences with natural causes.

Briefly, a few more types of not-real ghosts are poltergeists, demons, and shadow people. Abnormal psychology applies to poltergeists and demons. The physiology of the eye accounts for shadow people.

So, whats the truth about ghosts? Do they exist? Yes, of course they do. Can the scientific method be used to investigate them? Yes, they use measurable amounts of energy. Can you record their voices and photograph ghosts? Yes, but one needs to be alert to pattern recognition tendencies.

The science of ghost investigation has the potential to make a huge difference in a society still tormented by superstition and fear. You have the equipment. You have the rationale. And you have the compassionate desire to help others.

How Can Parents Explain UFO's to Their Children?

written by Chris Lowrey    

    Parents and kids alike are often fascinated with Outer Space.  Hollywood has made much of the mystery which gives the kids even more of an active imagination.  There are many intriguing theories and having these discussions with your children often brings intellectual conversations, and more importantly, memory building bonding moments.  Share the mystery of the night sky with your children.

The theories of UFO's become more popular year after year. Some people use their science-fiction minds to place them as alien-beings visiting from space. Some people use their politically charged minds and see them as secret government experiments, either from the U. S. or rival countries spying on us. But when did this craze start? And what might these strange objects really be?
          
There have been cave drawings of UFO's since 47,000 BC. These drawings from the cavemen are found all around the world. Even the Old Testament of the Bible says that Ezekiel saw a fiery chariot in the sky. Leonardo Da Vinci reported seeing a UFO in the sky and incorporated it in a few of his paintings.
          
But it wasn't until 1947 that the ‘flying saucer’ theory and the current craze came into play. On June 14th, pilot Kenneth Arnold spotted 9 circular shaped flying objects near Mt. Rainer. He reported he opened his window from his airplane, in case it was just a reflection, and the objects were still there, moving at a remarkable speed. He said it had no tail and was as flat as a pie pan. After reporting this, overwhelming reports of UFO's began. Thus, the craze and the theories of what these things are became born. The government disregarded Kenneth Arnold's experience as a mirage.
          
So, aside from the popular extraterrestrial theories, what can these phenomenons actually be?
          
There is a theory being studied and close to being proven of balls of lightening. The theory is that instead of lightning coming to the ground, it can sometimes bundle into a ball. And instead of it being a flash like most lightening, this ball floats and maneuvers a little before disappearing. This can also easily be mistaken for an object in the sky, especially since most UFO reports claim them as being bright and glowing.
          
Another fascinating theory is bugs! Insects can absorb natural bioluminescence from certain types of fungi. When insects travel in a heard or bundle together, it can give off a glowing, floating and strange appearance. Some species of owls also have a natural bioluminescence that can give a similar appearance. Witnessing this can easily be mistaken for something mysterious in the sky.
          
Also, natural gases from the ground can cause balls of light in the sky. Certain spots, especially near mountains, contain a mixture of elements that can cause strange lights. Depending on where you are standing, this can look like a floating light, like the Marfa lights in Texas.
          
There are several of scientific and meteorological explanations for these UFO phenomenon, but let's face it, they're just not as entertaining! Imagine all the weird theories people had about lightening before science proved what it really is. And, no one really wants to watch movies about how gases made the UFO's, its cooler to see alien invasions that give you a little rush of excitement.

Until such time as science can prove anything, keep your mind open to explanations because we still don't know what they are. . . . They could very well just be little green men!

UFOs: How Do They Get Here?

By: .JohnSmith.

What are UFOs, and where do they come from? Are they extraterrestrial spacecraft visiting Earth from another star system in our galaxy, or are they from our own solar system? Are they inter-dimensional in nature with the ability to pop into our universe from another parallel universe? Obviously, we can't answer any of these questions with absolute certainty, but it is possible to speculate on some of the scientific principles that might explain timely interstellar spaceflight or methods of inter-dimensional travel.

First, let us assume that UFOs originate from other stars in our own galaxy. The nearest star to our planet, other than the sun, is Alpha Centauri, which is approximately four light years away. At this distance, even at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second), a spacecraft from that star system would take 4 years to reach Earth, at least from our frame of reference. However, due to relativistic effects such as Lorentz contraction (the shortening of distance in the direction of motion) and time dilation (the slowing down of time), the occupants of the craft may experience a somewhat shorter trip. Even so, traveling near the speed of light does not seem to be a very efficient way of exploring a galaxy that is over 100,000 light years in diameter. Could it be that alien technology has carried them beyond normal modes of space travel? Are they capable of near-instantaneous travel from one part of the galaxy to another? Looking at UFO reports over the past 60 years, there are many instances of craft that seemingly blink in and out of existence. Maybe this is evidence of a super-technology that we can only imagine at this point in our evolution.

To get a better understanding of how extraterrestrial spacecraft might achieve this technology, it is necessary to delve into the dark abyss called quantum theory. The idea of quantum connection suggests that once two quantum systems have interacted, they are permanently linked, no matter what the distance is between them. Because of this link, superluminal communication (faster than light) is possible between the two systems. Through a process called quantum tunneling, a particle in system A can instantaneously travel to system B, even though the two systems may be separated by great distances. Could it be that the extraterrestrials have incorporated their understanding of this area of physics into space travel?

The idea of quantum tunneling can be further extended to explain inter-dimensional travel. Scientists have long theorized on the possible existence of multiple universes, all of them together making up a set of all possible outcomes of all possible events. For example, if our universe had been formed in a slightly different manner, then life as we know it would not be possible. Perhaps there is a separate universe for every possible initial condition at the time of the Big Bang, with each of these universes containing life totally foreign to us. It takes a significant stretch of the imagination to grasp these concepts, but perhaps some UFO occupants have succeeded in using a form of quantum tunneling to travel between universes. To an observer, this technology might manifest itself in the sudden appearances and disappearances of UFOs, the so-called blinking effect.

Of course, we can only describe UFOs and explain their technology in terms of our own limited knowledge. The reality of the UFO phenomenon might be far beyond anything imaginable.

Angel on the Water



About the Photograph

This incredible photograph was captured using a 35 mm disposable underwater camera, (Fuji 27 exp.)

We are Ron and Linda Martinez, husband and wife of 23 years.

We discovered this amazing image when we returned home from a vacation in Cancun, Mexico. You can view the entire roll of film here on our website.

We have the negative as proof of its authenticity.

The prints, direct from the negatives, are spectacular and are full of details.

This image is getting global attention because it has yet to be debunked.

It has been reviewed by many professionals in their respective fields of study, i.e. professional photographers, graphics experts, imaging specialists, skeptics, priests, physics, paranormal societies, myth busters, and, yes, even "Photoshop Experts."

This is simply a genuine photograph. It is another wonderful masterpiece created by "the Hand of God."

It may be an Angel, a Spirit, a Ghost or, simply, an "Apparition."

It may be a freak exposure, a ray of light passing through a drop of water on the lens, a seed caught in the wind and floating in front of the camera.

We named it "Angel on the Water" because that is what Linda and I both saw the first time we looked at it.

The true beauty of this photograph is that each of you get to believe what you feel it is. There are no authorities out there who can tell you what it is.
Peace to all,

Ron and Linda Martinez

307 Paranormal Ghost Chronicles


307PARANORMAL INTERVIEW
by Leslie Valentin



Hello Todaysparanormal Readers.  I am excited to introduce you all a paranormal investigation team from Cody, Wyoming.  This group of bright and determined teenagers are making a name for themselves in the paranormal community as investigators.  They share a compassion to assist others by seeking answers and truths to potential hauntings.
307 Paranormal is made up by three friends; all of whom work together on the investigations. Let me introduce Jared I. and Anna R. who are both 17 years old, and Logan J. who is 16 years old; all residing in Cody, Wyoming.

LESLIE:  WHEN WAS YOUR GROUP ESTABLISHED?

307Paranormal:  307Paranormal was formed in April of this year (2011.) We are young and still growing but we know what we are doing. We all have previous experience investigating and know what it takes to stand out and capture compelling evidence.

LOGAN - And we are loving every minute of it!

LESLIE:  WHAT MAKES THIS TEAM WORK SUCCESSFULLY?

ANNA - We are all close friends and work together well in a group. When we investigate we know our jobs and everything we do flows well together.

JARED - We’re a tightly knitted group of friends who know each other inside and out. We know each other’s strengths and weaknesses and balance each other out. All of us bring something unique to the team. Whether it’s myself being so eager to learn and capture the proof of the paranormal, Anna having photography/videography background, or Logan being so fearless to face whatever we may encounter.

LOGAN - I think that our team's dedication and curiosity has driven us to be on the path for success.

LESLIE: WHAT WAS YOUR PERSONAL CONTRIBUTION TO YOUR TEAM'S PERFORMANCE?

ANNA - I take the personal and group photos of our team; also I run a camera throughout the whole investigation. Jared and I also work together through the editing stages were we put together all the evidence for our episodes. The field I know the most in would be the photography.

JARED - I’ve conducted a lot of investigations and am the “veteran” of the group. I know what to expect and the best ways to find evidence of the paranormal. Like Anna, I also have a background in videography which helps in the filming and editing process of our episodes.

LOGAN - I’m an investigator as well as an EVP analyst (Electronic Voice Phenomenon). I go through all of our EVP sessions from our investigations and see if we caught any evidence. Most whispers or noises have to be amplified to be able to hear them with the human ear, and that’s my job.

LESLIE: WHEN SETTING UP AN INVESTIGATION, WHAT STEPS DO YOU TAKE TO ACCOMPLISH IT?

ANNA - We always talk to the homeowner/business owner about what they have observed and find out the history, anything that could be causing abnormal occurrences to be happening. Before the investigation we figure out if our gear is working, where we need to be, and what time. We are very professional about all our investigations.

JARED - After we are contacted or contact someone about an investigation, our crew talks with the owners of the location and gets the inside scoop. The background, the history, the paranormal experiences, all of it! We want to figure out what is there and why. After that, we set up a time when our crew comes in and does the investigation.

LOGAN - We have a fairly simple routine for setting up. We usually have a meeting the night before the investigation and discuss the location and what we want to focus on the most, and then we meet at the building the next night. We usually get some B-Roll shots (alternate footage) of the location and try and get some interviews.
LESLIE:  WERE THERE ANY STRESSORS THAT AFFECTED YOUR INVESTIGATIONS SUCH AS DEADLINES, EQUIPMENT, DATA COLLECTION, TRANSPORTATION, WEATHER, ETC.?
ANNA - There are always stressors that affect your investigations, whether is before, during, or after the investigation. There are a variety of different things that make investigating complicated. The number one thing for us I think is the fact that we are all teenagers. There is always a question to homeowners/business owners whether or not we are just a bunch of teenagers messing around. So that is always hard. Also there is equipment that just goes wild. We want to prove the existence of the paranormal, and that is hard when your cameras or microphone malfunction.

JARED - There are always the stressors of reviewing all of the evidence. On a normal investigation, we have eight hours of video evidence to review, three hours of voice recording evidence, and all the pictures to go through. Equipment has also been a stressor recently. The paranormal field is always expanding and there are so many new pieces of equipment that are extremely helpful in capturing evidence. It’s difficult to always be buying the new, cutting edge equipment of the field. People also have been hesitant with us because we are so young. They think we are just high schools students looking for a scar. But in reality, we are extremely serious and professional about this and mature in conducting investigations.

LOGAN -  Out of our many stressors, I’d say our biggest is we’re high school students and the public doesn’t take us professionally. Another drawback is we’re based out of a small town in Wyoming and there are only so many available locations to investigate here.
LESLIE:  WHAT DREW YOU TO THE PARANORMAL FIELD?
ANNA - Basically I stumbled into it, when I was little I remember staying in my great grandmas house and hearing strange noises during the night and just brushing it off. But as I got older I knew it was haunted and I became more curious. So when my friend Jared got into investigating I was really interested and joined a local team with him.

Curiosity. I remember watching all the ghost shows on T.V., reading ghost stories in books, and hearing ghost tales from others and wondering if it really was real. In order to believe it for myself, I wanted to experience the paranormal myself. So I set out to start looking for answers and soon enough, I found them. Now I’m out to capture undeniable evidence for others that leave no doubt that the paranormal is real. Ever since my first investigation, I’ve been hooked.

JARED - I’m drawn to the paranormal field simply because of curiosity. There is so much to it that is unknown and I have my mind set on revealing its’ existence.
LESLIE:  HOW WOULD THE OTHER TEAM MEMBERS DESCRIBE YOU?
ANNA - Probably as the quiet one who maybe is not as up for everything, but always there and ready to investigate.

JARED - Anxious to investigate, curious of the paranormal, committed to finding proof, and vital to the team.

LOGAN - I think that my other team members would describe me as the person that goes first and isn’t afraid to go to a certain location.
LESLIE:  WHAT IS IT ABOUT YOUR POSITION THAT APPEALS TO YOU MOST?
ANNA - I am the one who makes sure Logan and Jared do not get into any trouble, and I think there always needs to be a person who just can step back to make sure no one is getting in over their head.

JARED - Probably the fact that with every investigation, we might uncover the best proof that the paranormal exists.
LOGAN - Just the paranormal field in general, it doesn’t really matter that much to me my exact position as long as I’m in this field.
LESLIE:  WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE DURING AN INVESTIGATION?
ANNA - We use Sony Handycams with nightshot for all our visual as well as audio evidence, also microphones for EVP's. We are experimenting with spirit boxes or franks boxes and mel meters.

JARED - We are heavily video dependent. We all love filming and we use this to our advantage. With video, people can see what we see and feel like they are investigating right there with us. It also gives us the visual AND audio evidence. We also use voice recorders to capture EVP (Electron Voice Phenomena) or spirit voices. We’ve also been experimenting with Mel Meters and spirit boxes. These instruments can help validate that spirits are in our presence and communicating with us.

LOGAN - We typically have 2-3 cameras rolling and always at least one digital recorder and if we split up we have walkie talkies. The more equipment, the better.
LESLIE:  WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR STRENGTHS ARE?
ANNA - I believe that my strength would be not writing everything off as paranormal, I try to keep my mind open so when we find something we know for sure it really paranormal not just a car driving by, or the heater turning on. Also I keep everyone organized make sure all the equipment is working and with us, I organize the files on the computer.

JARED - I’m very self-driven. I will stop at no length to do whatever it takes to help this team grow and provide the evidence for people. I’m also very creative and think out of the box to help keep our episodes and tactics interesting and unique. My leadership also makes me stand out. I make sure things get done and that we are always on the right track.

LOGAN - I think my strength is being comfortable around the paranormal. I’m not the type of guy that’s going to be scared or freak out if I hear a whisper.
LESLIE:  HAVE YOU INVESTIGATED PRIVATE RESIDENCES?
ANNA - Yes I have.

JARED - Yes. Most of these investigations are to help the owners figure out what is going on in their house and answer questions.

LOGAN - Yes, 2 of the 3 investigations I’ve attended have been private.

LESLIE:  HOW DO YOU CONDUCT YOUR INTERVIEWS WITH A CLIENT?
ANNA - We are always very professional and listen to what they are expecting, so if they want this to be a private investigation, we don’t let any footage onto our website and only share our findings with them personally. It is really important to us to make sure the client knows we are professional the trustworthy

JARED - I figure out if there is anything in the past that could be causing paranormal occurrences. Maybe a death took place in the house, or the house is on sacred ground. Then I figure out what they have been experiencing and if they are any explainable reasons for it happening.

LOGAN - We usually just have the sit down in a well lit room and ask them questions about what they have experienced and where.

LESLIE:  WOULD YOU GIVE OUR READERS SOME EXAMPLES OF PLACES YOU HAVE INVESTIGATED?
ANNA - The Occidental Hotel, the Buffalo Bill Museum and the Irma Hotel.

JARED - Buffalo Bill's original hunting lodge, Sunset Elementary School and the Occidental Hotel,

LOGAN - Two private residences in Cody, Wyoming and the Irma Hotel.
LESLIE:  WITH THE SKILLS YOU POSSESS, DID YOU STUDY THIS IN SCHOOL OR GAIN EXPERIENCE THROUGH EMPLOYMENT; OR ARE YOUR SKILLS SELF LEARNED?

ANNA - Many of my skills I believe I learned while Jared and I were with  another group, but of course I think they mainly came with my personality. Questioning and being organized.

JARED - All my skills were self-taught. It’s so important to go out, try something, and fail. I figured out what worked and why. Then I repeated this until I figured out exactly what skills I needed to acquire in order to be a successful, affective paranormal investigator.


LOGAN - All of my skills I have in the paranormal field are self-learned.
LESLIE:  HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INTERESTED IN THE PARANORMAL FIELD?
ANNA - I have always had an interest, the discovery channel ghost tv shows have always been my favorite, but I think my interests have intensified within the last year the most. I am finally old enough to go out and investigate so that really has moved my interests into motion.

JARED - I’ve been interested in the paranormal field for about ten years. I had an encounter with a spirit when I was little and ever since then I’ve been curious. The past couple years though I have become much more serious and started researching and investigating.

LOGAN - I’ve been intrigued by the paranormal ever since I watched Ghost Hunters when I was about 13. Since then I have been amazed about the unexplained facts of the paranormal.
LESLIE:  DO YOU HAVE ANY ROLE MODELS IN THE PARANORMAL FIELD? IF YES, WHO ARE THEY AND WHAT DREW YOU TO THEM AS A ROLE MODEL?
ANNA - I do not know if I have an exact person who is my role model, but the ghost adventures team is definitely played a role in how our team investigates.

JARED - Zak Bagans, from Ghost Adventures. Ghost Adventures was the first ghost show I started watching and Zak stood out right away. He’s fearless, stops at no cost to do what it takes to get evidence, and is a leader. I look up to him and try to gain the same skills to help better myself as an investigator.

LOGAN - Mainly the crews from Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures.
LESLIE:  HAVE YOU EVER HAD PERSONAL EXPERIENCES IN THE PARANORMAL FIELD BEFORE BECOMING A TEAM?
ANNA - I had personal experiences as a child, but before 307paranormal formed Jared and I were a part of another local team. So with that team there were a lot of experiences.

JARED - Yes. Anna, Logan, and myself all had personal experiences before forming. These experiences were actually the leading cause for us to form 307Paranormal. We wanted answers, and we wanted to show others that the paranormal is real and out there.

LOGAN - My house has a fairly interesting history and on an often basis I hear a whisper or a knock. But besides that my personal experiences haven’t been too stunning.
LESLIE:  TO DATE, HOW MANY INVESTIGATIONS HAVE YOU DONE?
ANNA - I have been apart of 7 different investigations so far, but helped with 9 investigations by going through evidence and editing footage into a webisode.

JARED - I have done 12 investigations.

LOGAN - I'm more of the new guy, so I've only done 3 investigations.
LESLIE:  WHAT IS THE FURTHEST DISTANCE YOU HAVE TRAVELED FOR AN INVESTIGATION?
ANNA - I have traveled to Buffalo, Wyoming which is a 3 to 4 hour drive from Cody.

JARED - About 200 miles. Most of our locations are fairly close, about a 20-mile radius. We are beginning to travel further away to cover most of Wyoming and all of its haunted locations.

LOGAN -- So far, all of our investigations have been local. I am currently in the process of  setting up an investigation in Billings, MT; which is about 90 miles from home and I wouldn’t have a problem going that distance. With that in mind I don’t know of a location I wouldn’t travel to for an investigation.
LESLIE: WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE ACTIVITIES TO DO IN YOUR "OFF-INVESTIGATION" TIME?
ANNA - I live in Cody, Wyoming so it is an awesome place to go outside and be active. I enjoy overnight hiking trips, fishing, and playing tennis. I live on a farm so my family and I are very active in the local 4H club, so for that I raise beef cattle, sew, cook, and photography. So fair is a really big deal.

JARED - I love filming and editing action sport videos. Being from Wyoming, I am very outdoor orientated. I like mountain biking, rock climbing, and snowboarding. I am also into playing drums and the guitar.

LOGAN - During my off-investigation time I’m usually at my job or playing the guitar.
LESLIE:  WHEN DOING AN INVESTIGATION, WHAT TYPE OF EVIDENCE DO YOU LOOK FOR?
ANNA - Our goal as a team is to prove the existence of the paranormal. Of course the first thing we are going to look for is visual evidence because that is what people pick up on, and then of course audio from our voice recorders.

JARED - At the top of the list is visual evidence. Everything is more compelling when the viewer can actually SEE it. An unexplained shadow, a door shutting by itself, or any other activity that can be seen is what we look for. Then we look for the audio evidence. Relevant replies in response to our questions or sounds that back up stories of previous encounters are what we listen for.

LOGAN - There’s nothing in particular that I look for during an investigation. I’m happy if I can get absolutely any piece of evidence.
LESLIE: WHAT IS THE MOST MEMORABLE INVESTIGATION THAT YOU HAVE HAD?
ANNA - I think the most memorable investigation for me would be the Occidental Hotel. There is so much history and personal items in that hotel you can feel the energy around you, It was such a great investigation.
JARED - It would have to be at Buffalo Bill’s original Hunting Lodge right outside of Yellowstone National Park. I was in Buffalo Bill’s room and remember something touching my hand. I say, “Something just touched my hand.” Right after I say this, you hear a voice say, “I’m sorry.” It was a class A EVP. It blew me away. It showed that the spirit could hear me and understand that it had an interaction with me.

LOGAN - The most memorable investigation I’ve had is definitely at the Irma Hotel in Cody, WY. I was in this one room that had an amazing history behind it and some of the reports of paranormal activity were water running, and when I went into the bathroom which had a history of extreme violence, the bath tub faucet went off.
LESLIE: AS A PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIVE TEAM MEMBER, WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU ON AN INVESTIGATION?
ANNA - I think the most important part of an investigation is that our team accomplishes our goal of providing evidence of the paranormal, when possible, in a professional and safe manner.

JARED - How well our team works together, and we always do. Since we all bring something different to the team, it’s essential that we work together and combine our skills to make us an unstoppable force.

LOGAN - It’s important to me as in investigator to capture as much evidence as possible; I don’t want any movement or whisper to go unheard or unseen.
LESLIE:  WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE TO REVIEW THE EVIDENCE YOU HAVE COLLECTED?
ANNA - We upload all our video into Final Cut Pro and go through every second watching the screen as well as listening to the audio. We also will bring our audio files from the voice recorders onto the computer and into FCP.

JARED - We use editing software called Final Cut Pro to review the visual evidence and to put the episodes together. As far as audio evidence, we’ve been using Audacity but are experimenting with other audio programs.
LOGAN - We have a low budget therefore making our equipment less advanced. I import the footage on my computer from my camera and digital recorder and go through it very thoroughly. Like I said, I don’t want any evidence to go unheard or unseen. So if I capture evidence and don’t see it when I’m reviewing, that’s just embarrassing.
LESLIE:  WHAT CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE FROM YOUR GROUP IN THE FUTURE?
ANNA - Big things of course! We are going to keep organizing investigations, gaining new followers, and making our climb to the top. Our new web series entitled, “307 Ghost Chronicles” will be coming out shortly as well, which we are all really looking forward to.

JARED - HUGE THIINGS! We are just getting started and have awesome things coming in the future. We have some incredible locations with crazy history to them coming up and also our new web series, “Wyoming Ghost Chronicles,” will be airing this fall.

LOGAN - You can expect to see our name a lot more in the future. One of my relatives is good friends with the producer of Ghost Hunters International so once we get a little bigger we’ll give him our information and hopefully get a TV show.

LESLIE:  Anna, Jared and Logan, I want to thank you for your time to share with Todaysparanormal.com readers about your group 307Paranormal. I am sure it is safe to say we will all be keeping an eye on your upcoming achievements and works!

Are You Psychic? Learn How to Test Your Psychic Abilities By Talking to the Dead!


Written By Danny Fredricks

What is the best way to test your psychic abilities? Is practicing your precognitive powers the answer? Is trying to have an out of body experience, or playing with a Ouija board, or exploring the paranormal going to give you the answers you need? In this article we are going to take a quick and easy look at how you can TEST your psychic abilities by communicating with spirit, or said differently.... working with psychic mediums to talk to the dead! Curious to know more? Continue reading as we take a closer look below!

NOT Everyone Can Communicate with Spirit

It's true. It seems that people who are MOST amenable to making spirit communication a reality are those that have some openness to pre-existing belief in the authenticity of psychic abilities AND a curiosity about an afterlife. In fact, in many scientific studies, the people who do the WORST on just about all psychic tests are those that are either fundamentalist in their religious beliefs.....OR, are fundamentalist in their atheistic beliefs. Pretty interesting.....don't you agree?

What does that tell us?

That a closed mind......is a closed mind, regardless of what they believe. And in my view, the more open minded you are, the more open your consciousness is to receive REAL information that is waiting to come through and "speak" to you.

For example....

Psychic mediums, in scientific tests done by both believers and skeptics alike, report a FAR easier time getting messages for people who are at least "curious" or "open" to the idea that there could be an afterlife. MORE importantly, people who have at least one POSITIVE contact with a psychic medium where genuine information comes through tend to be FAR more likely to have subsequent contact with spirit on their own....without needing to use a medium as an intermediary.

(in other words, a medium reading can OPEN you up, or trigger something that allows future communication to come FAR more easily)

The same seems to be true of all sorts of other experiences. For example, one of the striking similarities in people who have a traditional near death experience is they come "BACK" with psychic abilities or unusual sensitivities they didn't have before. (this is SO common, it's actually listed as one of the top 10 aftereffects of an NDE)

The truth?

How ALL of this works exactly is a magical mystery and no one really has all the answers. But the fun is in the adventure, and the exploration and in opening yourself up to the joy of discovery. And for ME......it all started with a simple psychic medium reading almost 20 years ago, and life has never been the same since!

What Is a Soul Mate?



Written By Gary Wonning

There are many questions and misconceptions concerning the term "soul mate". Many think we have only one when in fact we have many. Everyone we interact with on a daily basis is a soul mate of one kind or another. What many refer to as a soul mate is actually a twin flame or twin soul, that is entirely a horse of a different color which I will explain in separate articles.

Soul mates are souls we have had life experiences, most likely many times, not only on planet earth, but many other realms of existence as well. Soul mates come together to perform some service or mission, not only to themselves, but to mankind as well. These missions are not always of grandiose design, they can be as ordinary as raising a family and providing a home for loved ones. It could be a business partnership, it could be any project where a need is met, often times soul mates come in and out of our lives and we share our life with many different soul mates during our time on earth as well as other realms of existence.

We have many soul mates and only one twin flame or twin soul. However, you need to treat all you meet with dignity and respect, everything you do affects your twin flame. You will not be re-united with your twin flame until you are ready and have evolved to a state of readiness, this will not happen until both have reached a level of acceptance for everyone and their actions. It doesn't mean you have to believe and condone all the actions of others, it just means you need to realize that everyone has karma and we need to accept they are following their own path, whether or not we choose to participate in their life is our choice.

Soul mates must meet the alpha and omega criteria or a mission will not be completed, The Alpha is the male and the omega is the female energy force. All endeavors on earth whether it be personal, political, business or anything else have an alpha and omega. In politics, the liberals are omega and the conservative are alpha. That is why the liberals are all about social issues and believe in a more socialist form of government and the conservatives are all about personal freedom, free markets, balancing budgets and believing everyone should carry their own weight,financially, if possible.

Thus we all have many soul mates with whom we inter react with many times and in many different relationships to not only resolve karma, but to grow and learn as well.

My spiritual journey began many years ago, after experiencing some life changing events, which created in me the desire to search for life's meaning. I have traversed the globe in search of truth, my truth, during which time I have had an opportunity to study with Aborigine elders, native American Indians, and some of the world's finest intuitives. All of this has lead me to better understand our world and all things therein contained.

I have created two blogs to share some of my adventures and knowledge as I see it. Please fell free to comment.

Witchcraft - Not All Black and White


Written By Kim K Brown

When you hear the word "witch" what image pops into your head? Maybe you imagine the Wicked Witch of the West, with green skin and a wart on the end of the nose? Perhaps you think of the evil stepmother in fairy tales? You might also think of the fairy godmother or the Good Witch of the North who resembles a fairy princess. If you have been indoctrinated with all these images of so-called "witches" from the media and your knowledge on the subject outside of movies and children's books is limited, then your first image would probably not be that of real, average, normal people but instead of fictitious characters like the ones mentioned above. However, things are not black and white in real life, and there are no such things as good or bad witches as portrayed in some books and movies. Rather, there are just people for whom witchcraft is a part of their lives.

Witchcraft is basically the practice or use of magical or supernatural powers. It is typically practiced in the realm of a religion, such as different Wiccan or Pagan traditions, but not necessarily so. This means that it can be performed separate from a person's spirituality or belief in the Divine. Therefore, not all witches are Wiccans. Some are Pagans and some are something else entirely. Likewise not all Pagans use magic, and Wiccans are a type of Pagan witches. In terms of religion, magic is commonly used when performing certain religious rituals.

There are good and bad kinds of witchcraft, oftentimes referred to respectively as white and black. Black magic spells are used to harm an individual or individuals, whereas white magic spells are used to protect, help, and heal an individual or individuals. Good spells would usually be performed either for yourself or for people you care about. There are other types of spells that may also be performed, such as love spells, money making spells, and power enhancing magic spells.

While black magic spells can be performed, most religions that involve the practice of magic, such as Wicca and other Pagan religions, prohibit the use of magic to harm somebody. A lot of the magic that is performed in these religions is actually used to help ward off black magic and other harmful spells and rituals that have been or could be performed on somebody. Therefore, it would behoove you to disregard what you have learned about witchcraft and its followers from the media and conduct research through reputable sources to learn how it truly works.

YouTube Psychic Predicted Japan Earthquake Tsunami

Written by Mike Dewitt

Did a YouTube astrologist predict the Japan Tsunami?

On March 8th, a YouTube user by the name of “9Nania” predicted that there would be an “event” (Japan Tsunami Earthquake) between the dates of March 11 and March 23. In her video, the woman describes how last year there was a Chilean earthquake during alignment with a certain comet, and this is what she appeared to make her prediction on. The astrologer has since gained many followers, many of whom have left comments, requesting further advice.
In the YouTube video, the psychic/astrologist says, “I would recommend that if you’re living in a fault zone area; take a vacation before March 11th. That’s what I’m recommending, that’s what I’ve been recommending for three months. Somethings gonna happen, guys.”

And something did indeed happen. In Japan, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake caused a tsunami in Japan, which devoured buildings, cars, boats, and everything in its path. Sendai was the area that was immediately affected; it lies about 250 miles northeast of Tokyo. Police have announced that 200-300 bodies have been found thus far, with many others currently missing and thought to be dead.

An official State of Emergency was declared, and a tsunami warning is currently in effect for North and South America.
Here is the YouTube video of the Japan Earthquake Tsunami prediction:

Chip Coffey Psychic Or Bully?


Written by Leslie Valentin

We live in a world where the general public is caught up by Paparazzi moments due to celebrities dating or breaking up, acting bizarre and fighting addictions amongst other issues. We also live in a time where the facts are not the key points but rather speculation, rumors and innuendos are. The world of reporting on people who are "in the spotlight" has purportedly assassinated the character of many, caused heartbreak for others, and yet for some, a major boost in ratings and popularity. The paranormal world of television or its “stars” are not immune from this.

This nation and probably much of the free viewing world has viewed recent behaviors by actor, Charlie Sheen.  His grandiose scheme of raging has not only lost him credibility, but also his contract with a television network as well as his job.

What is appalling is when persons such as Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson are held accountable for their words and actions while others who throw hissy fits and tantrums are not.

For some time now on the paranormal side of media entertainment industry on Facebook as well as on Twitter, spews can be read about various people by one renowned individual, Psychic Chip Coffey.  Mind you, Mr. Coffey has no issues speaking out against Charlie Sheen and his actions and behaviors, nor does he seem to hold his tongue about much.  Granted, Mr. Coffey is an animal activist in Georgia and has done wonders to help Shelter animals find new homes, and he also wrote a piece on September 22, 2010 on Facebook about Bullying.

The first line in his Facebook blog reads:
“Throughout my life - from the time I was a child - I've been bullied. Called nasty names and been made fun of. Even physically attacked! Sometimes, it hurt and sometimes it made me mad as hell.”
The entire blog can be read on Facebook, and the web address in listed under sources.  With a statement like that, it is hard to imagine that Mr. Coffey would in any way lash out online or otherwise.  Mr. Coffey goes on to state in this blog:

“I try to ignore those who make nasty comments about me. I refuse to defend or debate because I realize that, in most instances, I am wasting my time by doing so. Those who choose to bash others generally love it when the individual they are bashing gets into a pissing contest with them. And it fuels the fire, oftentimes creating a huge S#!TSTORM!”

So, with this said, why is it when one views Mr. Coffey’s Facebook and Twitter are there statements that are just the opposite.  And, why is it that some people are outright named while others are left nameless?
Mr. Coffey stated in a March 9, 2011 on Twitter to another person:
 “I understand your point & know he loves the attention, but if one doesn’t confront bullies, they will keep bullying!”
…and on March 7, 2011, Mr. Coffey twitted to another person:
“I don’t handle rudeness / discourtesy / disrespect / bullying well. ”  There is an old saying, “If you can’t stand the heat, then get out of the kitchen.”  Mr. Coffey has no issues handing out criticism but he doesn’t take kindly to another criticizing him or pointing out his character defects.  And with some reading between the Facebook and Twitter communities, one can find some of the lashings that Mr. Coffey issues.
Being in the entertainment business, yep folks, I said it….”entertainment”, you are in the spot light. And, in Mr. Coffey’s own words from another twit he made about a comment he received on Facebook on March 10, 2011:
“Brilliant comment sent to me on Facebook: Honey, the moment you go onto the internet, you open the door to every mentally ill person with a computer and a modem!”
Mr. Coffey twitted also another time that stated:

“I embrace free speech and the 1st Amendment but will say again. Just because you can does not mean you should.”
On September 7, 2009, Mr. Coffey wrote a blog on Facebook where he talks about limiting the freedom of speech.  As a reminder, our freedom of speech is the 1st Amendment.  Mr. Coffey goes on to say:
“Anyone with access to a computer can spout vitriol against others with little (or no) fear of reprimand or recourse. Many Internet bloggers and those who post on message boards to assail others use clever pseudonyms rather than their real names. This is no different than hooded or masked assailants in the "real world" who hide their identity and "cover their faces" in order to maliciously attack others. Thugs are thugs!”
The saying about what you put on the internet is not private is true.  It is a public forum.  With that said, one must remember that minding your manners literally is of essence if you are going to post, blog or share anything else on the electronic wave of communication. And, for those who feel the need to get on the internet and direct hateful and hurtful things to others must remember that while they might be protected by freedom of speech in the United States of America; rebuttals are also a freedom of speech so long as it is not lies.  If the latter is true, then libel and slander step in.

Mr. Coffey has shown behavior not only on the internet, but on the television as well.  Some could call it a passionate outburst; others could call it by a few different names.  The reaction or terming of these must be interpreted solely by the viewer.   It seems though, that with the credentials that Mr. Coffey boasts on his website - an “advanced degree in Counseling Psychology”, that Mr. Coffey would utilize the skills he has learned while in school about reacting or how to deal with others in general.  Questions generate however as to whether the “advanced degree” is a Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s Degree, or a Doctorate.  It would be plausible that if Mr. Coffey possessed such a degree that he would list the actual degree and not refer to it as “advanced”.

It is deplorable however, that people who publically call for the assistance, aid and other means of help to so many can turn around and dump or stomp on others all within the same relative breath. What is even more troublesome is that the media industry and networks do not seem to have any issue with behavior in general unless it is directed at them literally, such as the case with Charlie Sheen.
Acting seems to come to Mr. Coffey naturally however. On his website under the “About Chip” page, it states:
“His psychic abilities manifested themselves when he was a young child and after successful careers in traditional counseling, the entertainment industry and travel management, he began working full-time as a psychic and medium in 2001.”

The public has been the focal point of Mr. Coffey’s aim when he chose to air his disapproval of different forums who wrote about him.  Websites such as scifake.com and ghosttheory.com have written articles about Mr. Coffey and some of the shows on A&E.  Mr. Coffey has bellied down to even name calling on Twitter towards scifake.com and their continued articles about him.  Unexplained-mysteries.com is another internet forum who speaks lowly about Mr. Coffey’s treatment of individuals, including Beatrice Marot – Medium to the Stars.

So, after scoping on some of the odd or unacceptable behaviors, one cannot help but wonder why Mr. Coffey is not held accountable for what could be called childish behavior on public forums such as Twitter and Facebook.

The moral of this story is, regardless of who says what, mind your manners per say. It is a moot point as to whether the words come from a celebrity or an average person walking down the street. Don't dish out hateful things if you don't want it coming back at you from someone else. Eventually, all the money in the world and the most impressive attorneys will not stop the judge from saying your lawsuit is dismissed because you got a taste of your own medicine! A forked tongue is not one to be trusted and eventually those who are two-faced are seen for what they are; or as another saying goes - Karma will come back to bite you in the butt!
Just saying....

The Dead Ring



By Mike Dewitt

A new paranormal phenomenon has emerged! It is called the Dead Ring. Paranormal researches have been actively reviewing countless reports of a strange incoming call that appears on cell phones.

People who have answers the call were frightened by what the heard. Some reports say that the phone rings only at specific times with a "withheld number" or "000000000000" on caller ID.

The calls often feature heavy static and the voice sounds faint and distant, while others claim to hear screams and broken messages such us "Please Help us or me". Most people who have experienced this phenomenon have also became ill with headaches,vomiting and sleep disorders after accepting the call.

There have been other reports of strange images appearing on cellphone camera photos that were not taken by the owner after receiving this call. Some mobile service providers say its just someone out there pranking people at random. But if that's the case how does anyone explain the strange illness that occurred rite after receiving this call?

But is this even possible? Paranormal investigators say YES and a lot agree that not only is it plausible but in fact the claims are just another forum of white noise.

So keeping that in mind researchers have been using cell phones during live investigations to see if any spirits would try to communicate with them. The results were staggering especially when ghostly activity was high.

Researchers have been giving warnings to all cell phone users look and see who is calling before answering!!! You might NOT want to talk to whatever is on the other side.

13 Signs That Your House Is Haunted

Written by ColdSpots
Whether your a veteran ghost hunter or just learning the ropes there are many things you need to consider when determining a location to be haunted. Not all haunting's are alike. There are a wide range of indications that you must consider in your evaluation. Such as windows and doors slamming shut repeatedly, unexplainable sounds, and unknown odors. These are all legitimate signs of the phenomena. Some haunting's feature a single phenomena, such as objects moving on their own. While other haunting's offer the feeling of being touched or hearing disembodied voices. In some very rare cases you might even run into a full bodied apparition.

Here's a list that covers most indications that your location maybe haunted:

A general uneasy feeling: like you are not alone, or the feeling of being watched are common in most reports of a haunting

The feeling of being touched: some investigators report that either their hair or an article of their clothing has been tugged on or something touched them, usually on their arm, hand or leg

Unexplainable movement: such as a shadow or light, the more extreme is to witness an object move on its own. For example chairs, tables, books, etc... The most common report is of something walking by them when no one else was there.

Strange pet behavior: A dog growling or repeatedly barking at something you are unable to see, or sudden refusal to enter a particular room or area of the location when in the past there was never a problem. You may even see the dog dart or dash as if something is chasing it away. Cats are another good indicator. They will occasionally sit there and their heads will move as if they are watching something invisible walking across the room, and sometimes they may get up and follow whatever is there. Cats personality are different from dogs, they are more likely to stick with a possible entity rather than run away. Animals also have sharper senses than humans, and many paranormal researchers believe their psychic maybe more finely tuned as well.

Electrical and appliance issues: Reports of TVs, stereos, lights and other electrically powered items, turning either on or off when the witness knows it was left the opposite way.

Unexplained Noises: such as foot steps, knocks, banging, and scratching sounds. Sounds of something being dropped or shuffled. The sound of doors and windows opening or closing. Sometimes these noises can be subtle or extremely loud.

Items disappearing and reappearing: Personal or commonly used items, such as car keys, hair brushes or cell phone, that suddenly disappear. Most people search high and low for a missing item but have no success. In some cases the items will go missing for days or even weeks, only finally to be found placed back in its original location. Some paranormal investigators call this "the borrowers" phenomenon.

Unexplained shadows: The sighting of unusual shapes or shadows moving at a fast rate, usually seen out of the corner of the eye. At times these shadows resemble a human form, with a dark gray or black color. Most people who witness this say, they see a flash moving in various directions.

Disembodied voices and whispers: a phenomena where a witness says they heard a voice saying something to them when no one is around, or multiple witnesses hearing the same thing with no explanation for it. Not only does this come in the form of voices but occasionally people will hear music coming from nowhere. Also a disembodied voice is heard with the naked ear, where as something such as an E.V.P. is only heard after playing back a recording device.

Unexplained temperature changes: These are also know as "cold spots". Usually a fluctuation of 10-20 degrees in a localized area indicates some either tryed or did manifest itself. Cold Spots are a classic symptom of a haunting.

Unexplained smells: the appearance of smells in the home, usually that of unfamiliar perfumes or colognes, that the witnesses do not recognize. This usually accompanies more severe phenomena such as full bodied apparitions. Odors such as rotten eggs are also reported.

Apparitions: the appearance of a physically visible phenomena, such as a mist or shade all the way to a being that looks solid and alive until it disappearing into a room or walks through an object it shouldn't be able to. These types of phenomena are very rare and if encountered should be documented as thoroughly as possible.

Physical Assault: hard shoves, slaps, and scratches are extremely rare, but if encountered leave the premises immediately.

Above are the most commonly reported occurrences of people who believe their residence to be haunted. We are not saying that all of the above will occur, and its possible that some things we did not mention could happen as well. It can get far worse, or there maybe a simple natural reason for what you or the client maybe experiencing. Odd noises don't have to be a spirit, it may just be a house settling, bad pluming, or possibly a wild animal. Check for problems with the structure, such as holes in the foundation, you may find a family of some creatures living inside the internal structure that can wreak all sorts of havoc. The same applies for investigating a business, if the property owner is complaining about windows and doors opening and closing, it could just be rusty hinges or a strong draft if the structure isn't properly insulated. This can explain away cold spots as well. At the end of the day, the majority of occurrences have a reasonable explanation, so before you tell a client they're haunted make sure you have the evidence to back it up.

Strange Occurrences at America's No.1 Theme Park



Walt Disney was the pioneer of the Golden Age of Animation. With that said who will ever forget his brilliance. After all he created Mickey Mouse, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Donald Duck just to name a few. Disney died of lung cancer in Burbank, California, on December 15, 1966. The following year, construction began on Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. So is it safe to say that Walt is haunting what he created? Some believe that answer is yes!

A long-standing urban legend maintains that Disney was cryogenically frozen, and his frozen corpse was stored underneath the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. Truth is Disney was cremated on December 17, 1966, and his ashes reside at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.

But What many are saying is the ghost of Walt Disney, appears to be strolling an empty Disneyland theme park. The image is from 4 Disneyland security cameras and if you look carefully, you can see the ghost walk through the gates of the haunted mansion. You’ll also notice that the park is empty and the ghost is moving at a regular walking speed.

Could this be the ghost of Walt Disney? Or perhaps one of the other resident ghost. Here are some of the reported claims.

Orlando - Disney World - Pirates of the Caribbean - The spirit of "George" a worker who died there when a beam fell on him during construction still haunts the attraction. At the beginning of the day and at the end of the day attractions workers must come on the PA system and tell George good morning and good night. If not the attraction has been know to shut itself down adding more work before the workers can go home for the night.

March 2004 Addition/ correction - when the ride was being built in the early 70's (it opened Dec. 15, 1973) , George was a welder who clearly, welded different parts of the scenes on the attraction together. One particular area on the ride, called the "burning city", required George to climb up quite high above the ground. George lost his balance, and fell to his death. If you talk to any of the employees at pirates, they will either know of someone who has had an incident with George, or there is a chance they have had one themselves.

Orlando - Disney World - There is known to be a tan figure walking down the streets in front of the castle.

Orlando - Walt Disney World - EPCOT - Spaceship earth - a small girl with long blonde hair has been seen riding in a car & a boy run in front of her and vanish at the same location (outside during the day).

Orlando - Walt Disney World - Tower of Terror - There has been a story among employees of a ghost walking around the "Tower of Terror" at off hours; he's usually found walking the wrong way, does not respond to calls and then disappears.

"The man in a tuxedo" is another spirit, though no one really knows who he is. One day an employee was working in the area where passengers disembark. There is a mirror there, so the attendant can see when the riders come up behind her. She kept seeing a shadow in the mirror, and when she turned around no one was there. The figure seemed to be wearing a tuxedo. Then, she felt a chill and a hand placed on her shoulder. Of course, she turned to find no one there. The woman ran out of the Haunted Mansion and soon quit her job.

There is a legend concerning a woman who wanted to scatter her young son's ashes inside the Haunted Mansion, but was forbidden by Disney officials. She snuck the ashes inside and covertly scattered them. Apparently, this was NOT her son's last wish and since she did that people have sometimes seen the apparition of a crying boy sitting near the exit.

Though there have been many stories circulated, only one person ever actually died in the Haunted Mansion. Each year Disney world sponsors "Grad Night", which is for high school seniors. Two teenage boys were riding along in a Dune buggy when one of them decided that he wanted to see the room called "Séance Circle" up close.

The young man stepped out on to the black painted walkway that was next to the tracks. What he did not realize was that there was a gap between the walkway and the platform on which the display sat. He stepped off the walkway and plunged fifteen feet to the floor, breaking his neck. "Séance Circle" has been odd since the beginning.

A sound designer was setting up equipment in the area before the attraction was open to the public. He kept hearing music coming from behind one of the new walls. He surmised that a radio had been walled up accidentally. After several days the music had never ended and no radio announcer ever came on. The man could never find the source of the sound, so he arranged for a speaker to go in the area and drown it out.




Voodoo Dolls



Written by Frank M Stevens

The Voodoo Doll is actually not from the Original African Voodoo. Modern Voodoo became so powerful because it was forged in the fires of survival and included sections from several arts.

The practitioners used any form of magic that would work. The Voodoo Doll is actually from a form of European Magic where it was called a Poppet. That is, Poppet, not Puppet but the word Puppet does come from the word Poppet.

The Poppets are primarily thought to be a powerful magical tool for successful spells based upon a magical law called similarity, which is a sub-law of sympathetic magic. But this belief taken in whole has caused a lot of problems.

Because Voodoo Doll or Poppet Magic can be quite effective, this theory behind why it works was strengthened. But that is only partly correct. It missed a very important piece of understanding that has caused a lot of pain.

When you use a Voodoo Doll or Poppet in your magic you are actually doing 2 things.

1. You are acting with the law of similarity, but that act mostly only strengthens the focus back in your own mind and spirit. Think about it this way: after you get a hair cut and the barber flushes your hair down a toilet, do you drown? Or if a photo of you burns, do you burn? You don't, normally.

A doll you make yourself while thinking about your intended recipient will always be a much more powerful spell casting tool than a doll that you bought and just added some hair or a photo. Sure, I would love to sell you blank dolls,but if I did this I would be shorting your magical education and pushing your spells to failure.

2. Second and more importantly, you are forging a connection with your spirit between your recipient and yourself through the doll when you make the doll, and while focusing on the recipient.

This connection then acts as a conduit for the energy of the spell. Whether you invoke the Loa or another spirit from or just use your own energy, it is like a path through bushes from your intention to your recipient.

This connection between yourself and your recipient is why it is a bad idea to do harmful magic to someone in this way. This is one of the most common ways that voodoo spells backfire. If you are sticking pins on your doll and thinking hateful thoughts at your recipient, some of that energy will come from the doll back to you. In fact, you can test this. Make a doll and do something to it then feel the reaction in yourself. You can even make a doll of yourself and do spells on yourself in this way.

A good use of a Voodoo Doll or Poppet is a protection or feel loved spell. This is when you want the recipient to feel your good feelings at a distance. Another good use of a Poppet or Voodoo Doll is to define and then find someone.

In a spell of this type, you are creating similarity to someone whom you want to find. Your spirit is smart and is connected in ways you cannot imagine. And of course, when you are more advanced the Loa can help you find people.

Here are the steps:

Let's say that you want to find a specific type of person. This could be a love, a sexual encounter, an accountant for your business, a good dog trainer, or someone to play chess with --- just about any type of person. You make a Poppet while thinking of exactly this type of person and you put symbols that have meaning to you into the making of your Poppet.

Key note here: Your Doll will connect you with this person. It has to. It will every single time, I guarantee it. Even if you really do a bad job with it you will still have a connection. The connection will just be very weak. But here is the warning: you can easily pull this person toward you or push him/her away from you. The connection goes both ways.

But you can still test this kind of magic without it. The connection will have a natural pull bias. If you simply make the doll, then do not worry about whether or not it will work.

Once you get it finished, just set it some place where you can see it and ask yourself daily if you will see this person today, but you can't worry about not seeing him/her. If you do,then you will push that person away.

If you start feeling like that then you should destroy the doll and clear the spell. Until you know better how to control the direction of your energy, simply do not put any force into the spell at all. It will tend to automatically pull you towards your recipient simply because you forged the connection.

Gnome-like Creature Terrorizes Town


A video was emailed to us showing what appears to be a life size gnome terrorizing small rural towns in Argentina. Towns folks are scared and city streets become empty by dusk. Reports state that this creature surfaces only at night and will attack anything in its path. The creature was first discovered by a small group of teenagers that spotted something moving in the shadows. The group quickly ran for cover after several stones was thrown at them by the beast. Since that time, dozens of reports have surfaced with startling claims from the victims that the creature attacks at will and has the strength to break bones. Many attempts have been made by local hunters to trap or even kill the beast. Unfortunately all has failed and the creature is still on the loose. A local townsman caught the beast on his cell phone but the resolution is predictable low and no one ever makes out any distinct characteristics. After carefully evaluating the footage we have no idea what this thing could be! It stands on two legs and appears to be humanoid with arms in the appropriate spots and has that freakin’ pointy hat! Do gnomes exist? Apparently they do!

GAC Response to Haunted Claims at the White House

Written by Jenna Cears

If you are as intrigued by the paranormal as I am, then you surely have at least heard of the Travel Channels T.V series Ghost Adventures! Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin travel the world just the three of them to capture evidence of the paranormal. This is personally my favorite paranormal show of all time; these guys are the real deal! No doubt about it!

Zak has recently put out a petition to sign to send himself, Nick and Aaron to the White House to investigate the recent claims that have surfaced. The link to sign this petition is here Petition to Send The Ghost Adventures Crew to the White House! Zak’s dedication, enthusiasm, and trust in his fans to help make this happen have inspired me to write this article showcasing the qualities the Ghost Adventures Crew have that makes them the best team fit for the job. Also about the claims that has risen about the paranormal activity inside the White House. The White House is known through out the world as the powerhouse of America, may have some things lurking in its historic corridors.

The White House has a reputation for being one of the most ghostly homes in America. President Harry Truman said the place was "sure as shooting” haunted. Kennedy’s Press Secretary James Haggerty admitted to sensing the presence of Lincoln’s spirit in the White House. This isn’t the only claim the White House as seen! President Clinton’s Press Secretary Mike McCurry admitted he was a believer:

"There are, from time to time, reports that the White House is haunted by   mysterious appearances of figures from history, and I believe them. There have been serious people who have serious tales to tell about these encounters, and there are many people who seriously believe that there is a haunting quality to the White House."

                       Also Hillary Clinton said, "There is something about the house at night that you just feel like you are summoning up the spirits of all the people who have lived there and worked there and walked through the halls there." Then on the Rosie O'Donnell Show, the previous first lady stated, "It's neat. It can be a little creepy. You know, they think there's a ghost there. It is a big old house, and when the lights are out it is dark and quiet and any movement at all catches your attention."

There have been also a lot of talk about the many séances in the White House, but the majority of them occurred in the period of the administration of Abraham Lincoln! While living in the White House, Lincoln and his wife held several séances in the Green Room in an effort to contact the wondering spirit of their son, Willie, who sadly died there. It is said that one medium who visited the White House regularly gave President Lincoln advice from vast leaders of history. At one of those séances, the spirit of Daniel Webster pleaded with Lincoln to pursue with his efforts to free the slaves.

 Medium J.B. Conklin conveyed a message to Lincoln from his close companion, Edward Baker, who had been killed at the battle of Ball's Bluff. The obscure message said: "Gone elsewhere. Elsewhere is everywhere." During 1863, a supposed medium Charles Shockle visited the White House and performed levitation. At levitation, Lincoln allegedly told a Maine congressman to sit on top of a piano that was hovering in mid-air! Following the assassination of her husband, Mary Todd Lincoln desired contact with his spirit through mediums and séances, and felt that she had succeeded. Members of household of Ulysses S. Grant's are said to have conversed with the spirit of young Willie Lincoln during a séance in his past second floor bedroom.

Longtime White House Chief Usher Gary Walters described his bump into ghosts in the White House. “Several staff members have had eerie experiences. Once, three police officers and I were standing at the state floor of the White House. We all felt a cool rush of air pass between us, and then two doors that stand open closed by themselves. I have never seen these doors move before without somebody specifically closing them by hand. It was quite remarkable."

Ghosts seen in the front of the White House are a long-dead White House usher still frequently turning off lights and a past White House doorman who acts like he is still on the job. The more popular ghost is that of the spirit of a British soldier from the War of 1812 walks the grounds in front of the White House in the darkness. He is said to be a remainder of the 1814 endeavor by the British to burn the White House. The looming apparition is constantly seen with a scorching torch in his hand.

A very well known place in the White House is the infamous Rose Garden. In the Rose Garden the spirit of Dorothea Madison, the spouse ofPresident James Madison shows herself in the Rose Garden most habitually during the administration of Woodrow Wilson. “Dolley” had planted the beautiful Rose Garden a hundred years before. First Lady Ellen Wilson gave orders to have it dug up. Frightened workmen reported “Dolley's” ghost appeared on the plot and kept them from doing their job. After that, no one dared harm the famous White House Rose Garden, and “Dolley's” original rose garden continues to bloom and bring a extra special beauty to the White House to this very day.
There are many more claims regarding the White House! If you are interested start researching! You never know what you might find!

Now it’s time to talk about the three best guys known to investigate the White House. Zak, Nick and Aaron from Ghost Adventures! These guys are legit and deserve the right to investigate possibly one of America’s most haunted places of all time!

             Zak Bagans is the lead paranormal investigator and host of the series, Ghost Adventures. Formerly working as a wedding DJ, Zak is also the executive producer and editor of the very popular show. Zak is the founder of the Ghost Adventures Crew (GAC), a global community of paranormal investigators. As of September 2010, GAC's members were over 730 paranormal organizations. Zak is currently in Las Vegas, Nevada and as far as we can tell he loves it there! Zak was former skeptic but he says that his passion for investigating the paranormal came from a face-to-face encounter with the spirit of a suicidal woman who resided in his old apartment building in Trenton, Michigan in 2002.  After, this life-changing experience caused him to actively pursue capturing video evidence of the afterlife. In the introduction of each episode, Zak states:
          
             My name is Zak Bagans. I never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one. So I set out on a quest to capture what I once saw onto video. With no big camera crews following us around, I am joined only by my fellow investigator Nick Groff and our equipment tech Aaron Goodwin. The three of us will travel to some of the most highly active paranormal locations, where we will spend an entire night, being locked down from dusk until dawn. Raw; extreme; these are our Ghost Adventures.

Using a self-described religious, scientific, and emotional approach, Zak is known for his aggressive and confrontational methods to approach spirits in his investigations. He also respects the afterlife and only provokes evil entities in order to elicit responses. In a June 2009 interview with the Paranormal Underground magazine, Zak said, "I don't want the public perceiving us as the taunting, provocative ghost hunters. We do that only to the bad spirits who we know are attacking the living." This makes him a fantastic investigator, and an overall wonderful person.

Nick Groff is the co-investigator and cameraman on Ghost Adventures. He is also an executive producer and editor of the show. Nick is also the co-founder of the GAC. Nick's fascination and interest of the paranormal world began in his childhood. In which he had experienced a paranormal occurrence that he could not explain. When he was just eight years old, he saw a figure on an old cul-de-sac on Lancaster Road in Salem, New Hampshire. After graduating high school, Nick studied film at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. After college, Nick became a paranormal investigator. Nick met and befriended Zak at his wedding. It was a moment that changed their lives, the two teamed up with the same interests to investigate the paranormal.

Aaron Goodwin is an equipment technician, camera operator, and a co-investigator on the series. He is also a very big goofball and brings about humor on camera. In need of a cameraman for their series, Nick and Zak first met and hired Aaron to assist them with most important filming and B-roll taping.
Before joining Zak and Nick, Aaron had worked as a cameraman for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Before what he experienced in Virginia City, Nevada, he "never really thought twice about ghosts." Aaron looks continuously terrified on the show and currently regards himself as "a 100 percent – no, a 1,000 percent – believer." Very often Aaron is left alone in the "hotspots" in the locations the crew is investigating. Aaron has been portrayed as "bait" to invite supposed ghostly spirits, and it usually works!

The Ghost Adventures Crew, Zak, Nick and Aaron are perfectly fit to investigate the White House. They respect the history that America is built on and shows that in their investigations. They take in a deep respect for the land and places that they investigate and take their job very seriously. Having a great amount of empathy for those souls who still lurk the places they investigate, and intimidate those evil spirits that harm the living, they are definitely the right guys for this job! Zak, Nick and Aaron are proud Americans and love this country! They deserve the right to investigate the mysterious and bone chilling claims at the White House! We all wish you good luck guys and we hope you get this amazing opportunity, we believe in the Ghost Adventures Crew!
