The effects of a spiritual attack can linger for months, even years. In fact, things usually get worse if left unaddressed. There is a mountain of documentation within the paranormal community pertaining to cases of evil spirits taking possession of dwellings and the people in them. As a professional psychic medium or paranormal investigator, it is crucial to take steps to protect yourself and your team from the evil, sometimes homicidal entities you encounter on the job.

One notable psychic medium asserts that the famous case in Amityville, New York resulted from a demonic haunting that was allowed to remain in the home. The activity in the home rose to a fever pitch and eventually left the entire DeFeo family dead and son, Ronnie, in prison for life. Although the DeFeo case is extreme, victims in other cases report the decline of physical and mental health, increased financial problems and the destruction of important personal relationships as the result of negative or demonic hauntings. With increased exposure to the paranormal realm comes increased risk of attacks of this nature. As a professional medium or investigator, you must also guard against energy drain that can impact your physical and emotional health.

While this article is written from the standpoint of a psychic medium, it encompasses the whole paranormal investigative community. It is vital to the safety and the success of any medium or investigator to employ simple protective practices in their work. Spirits are known to scratch, push, bite, attach themselves and can influence your thoughts and emotions. They can invade the physical body, causing medical problems in otherwise healthy individuals. In the most extreme cases, evil entities can cause serious bodily injury and even death to victims. As a result, many mediums and greenhorn ghost hunters are chased off of the job when an ornery entity shows up with not-the-nicest of intentions. You’ve beckoned the spirits. They showed up. Now what?


Follow these simple but powerful steps and stay safe on the job:

White Light Meditation

Prior to beginning a reading or entering a location, take 5-10 minutes to complete this easy meditation. Imagine a powerful white light circling your head and moving down the length of your body all the way to your feet. Imagine this light expanding into a bubble or aura of protection that moves with you as you go about your work.

If you are a spiritual or religious person, you can imagine this protective light as a gift from or an extension of your higher power. If you are not religious, it is more than sufficient to imagine this light surrounding you as pure, protective energy and the extension of your own personal power and groundedness.

In addition to adding a layer of protection, you might find that this meditation enhances your readings or investigations. Positive entities are attracted to this vital energy and take comfort in it. It is believed that spirits cannot see man-made light but they can easily see candlelight and the light energy that comes from a warm human aura.

Negative entities, on the other hand, shrink from the light. They prefer dark, dank spaces and are most at home around humans with fearful or depressed energy. Their power is somewhat diminished by the positive energy force generated by the white light meditation.

To take this meditation a step further, imagine a layer of mirrors surrounding you in addition to the white light. The mirrors reflect light back into the world. This allows you to have a powerful, positive influence on the environment while protecting you also from becoming drained or being attacked.

Meditation may seem unnatural if you are not into meditation. It does not have to have a religious or even spiritual connotation to work well. When you become good at it, you can begin your meditation in just a couple of minutes and imagine the light expanding as you go about your work. Continue to focus on the light at times throughout the reading or investigation.

Talismans

Most mediums show up for work armed with talismans and other tools of the trade to keep them safe. Investigators benefit from talismans, too. If you are a religious person, you may draw from the traditions of your faith in selecting protective items for use in your work. What types of talismans or protective items are used? There are tried-and-true methods within the paranormal community listed below. However, there aren’t really any rules – if the items make you feel safe and boost your confidence in your work, consider them worthy and appropriate. One famous investigator relies on a meaningful tattoo. Before heading out to the neighborhood tattoo shop, check out this list of a few things commonly used by mediums and investigators:

  • Crosses, Religious Medals, Holy Water
  • Medicine bags filled with herbs and stones, used by indigenous people for thousands of years.
  • Stones, like crystals and black tourmaline, used to banish negativity and charge the environment with positive energy.

Show Respect

The old “golden rule” even applies in the spirit world. When engaging in communication with spirits, be respectful. Many paranormal groups use heckling to rouse spirits. While this method is effective in stirring things up, it usually brings about the kind of attention you don’t want. The most responsible para-professionals don’t use heckling for fear of putting their clients into a dangerous situation. In readings, speak to your clients on the other side just as you would during a business conversation on the physical plane. This standard separates the thrill seekers from the true professionals in the paranormal community.

Shutting Down

Friendly spirits are desperate for communication. Evil spirits want to draw energy from you and wreak havoc in your life. Because natural mediums are born with their abilities, it is impossible to shut them off entirely. (Imagine trying to turn your nose off when the trash truck drives by.) In addition to regular home cleanings with sage and salt (and prayer if you are religious) you must shut down communication after every reading.

When your work is done, politely ask the spirits to leave you alone. Be specific. Tell spirits that they are not allowed in your energy field nor are they allowed to follow you home. Be firm in telling them to stay away from your family and pets. Bear in mind, however, that they don’t always go away the first time you ask. Stay alert in the hours and days after an intense reading for signs of spirit attachments. In particular, keep track of your energy level and moods. Practice the white light and mirrors meditations; they work to cleanse your energy field and protect you from spirits seeking to attach. Remember, your work is not necessarily done when you shut down your investigation or leave the office for the day.

Cleaning House

Setting up boundaries around your home and property allows you lead a normal life outside of work as a medium or investigator. Because spirits, good and bad, draw from your vital energy, it is not advisable to allow any spirits to dwell in your home. You must cleanse your home of spiritual energy – including your own – on a regular basis. Living people deposit energy in the places they live and work. In order to truly begin each day anew, you must clear out this type of residual energy, too.

Cleanse the home every 1-2 weeks. (If you do readings for clients in your home, you need to do this more frequently.) To cleanse the home, many professionals burn sage and candles while asking for peace and positive energy to dwell in the home. Place pure sea salt in the corners of each room and at the corners of the property outdoors to keep spirits away when you walk to the car or mow the lawn. Just like talismans, home cleansing rituals tend to be personal. Following the suggested methods of burning sage and scattering salt is a great place start. Develop additional methods on your own based on your spiritual preferences.

If you skip this step, you might find yourself living in a swirling portal of energy where spirits of all kinds run rampant. Energy drain over a period of time can lead to depression and health problems.

Plan for the worst

Any medium or investigator needs to make a plan in case the worst happens during – or after – a reading or investigation. Reach out to your team, a mentor, psychic medium or healer if you sense that your energy field has been compromised. If you are having obvious health problems consult a medical doctor. Stay alert for signs of energy drain, depression or unusual activity at home. Reacting to red flags when they pop up affords a huge advantage in dealing with pesky spirits who trample on your boundaries.

What Not to Do

Never try to cleanse or bless a dwelling or person without permission from your client. Further, do not try to cross over spirits without speaking first with your client. The reason for this is because your job as a medium (or investigator) is to collect information and deliver messages – it is their job to decide what to do about it. If you determine it is a loved one flicking lights off and on or emanating the smell of cigar smoke in the home, your client might want them to stick around. Further, if the entity is evil or demonic, you must make a plan to further diagnose and properly treat the haunting. An off-the-cuff house blessing rarely works in demonic cases and usually just makes things worse.

Following practices to stay safe while working with the spirit realm allows you to continue this important work over time. The most successful mediums and investigators are those who make their own safety and that of their clients a top priority.

The Stockton School For Wannabe Demons

A worried Elisa

The S.P.I.R.I.T. team was asked to assist Ryan Privee, a fellow paranormal investigator from Modesto, CA, with a negative entity case involving the apartment home of Elisa, in Stockton, CA. Elisa has been complaining of odd noises in the apartment, and a feeling of foreboding and negativity in the home.

The Investigation

A baseline K2 sweep showed unexplained EMF hits in the hallway and in the daughter’s bedroom. Ryan’s static electricity devices showed strong static hits in the master bedroom, along with orb captures with still photography.

In the daughter’s room, a defiant voice was captured on the SB11 Spirit Box, claiming to be “Satan” and “Evil.” When team members told the entity it would be cleaned out, the SB11 response was “try it.”

stocktongirlsroom

Daughter’s room

This type of entity is what we often refer to as a “Huffer and Puffer.” The entity puts on a strong, fearful front, in hopes of scaring the investigators away. When it comes to the actual cleansing, however, the entity proves to be relatively easy to cleanse out with S.P.I.R.I.T. members’ tried and tested methods and abilities.

The Cleansing

The home was cleansed using holy water, white sage, and Palo Santo Wood. The entity was banned from the apartment easily, proving itself to not be demonic in any way, as actual demonic cases are very dangerous and tough to deal with, and usually take more than one visit by team members. This entity simply tried to build itself up to be something it was not.

Melissa felt that the entity, a lost, angry, and defiant human soul, was seeking out demonic forces on the other side, and in time, could well have become a very negative and serious haunting in this apartment home. It is always best to “nip it in the bud” with such cases, before a more serious situation builds up.

Conclusion:  Probable deceased human / previous tenant with dark intent but little power or energy, indication the spirit may not have been dead for very long.

Note:

The morning after this investigation, the client reported raw meat being draped on her car outside. This appears to have been an attack by neighbors in another apartment in the building who noticed the investigation taking place, and did not approve of their neighbor engaging in the paranormal in any way. However, the client has reported that all paranormal activity in her house has stopped.

Case Closed.

The Old Prospector Ghost of Natomas

Article by Brent L. George
Natomas, CA
June 26, 2016ghostscoobydoo

The S.P.I.R.I.T. team was dispatched the home of Crystal and Jeff in Natomas, CA. The couple has a young daughter and another child on the way. Their youngest daughter has been consistently reporting a black mist that crawls up her bedroom wall and watches her sleep. The couple themselves report feeling constantly watched in the home, unable to rest easily, and are constantly tired. Their daughter is terrified to sleep in her room alone and Crystal is very worried about the home’s possible paranormal activity affecting her new arrival.

The Investigation: 4:00 p.m.

S.P.I.R.I.T. team members Melissa, Wendy, and Brent arrive on scene for the daytime investigation. Since the client requested a focus on cleansing and less focus on investigation, little photography was taken during this investigation.

During the identification phase of the cleansing, sporadic K2 hits are detected throughout the home. In particular, the K2 equipment hits on the attic entrance and the entrance to the master bedroom’s walk-in closet. In the child’s bedroom, steady K2 kits at 10 mG (Milligauss) are measured on the wall where the child reported seeing the black mist climb up the wall; however these steady K2 hits are debunked as coming from the shelf stereo system and speakers on the other side of the wall.

Melissa says she senses two familial spirits that are trying to help, and an older bearded gentleman who look like he is dressed in the garb of a mid-19th century gold prospector. In the mid-19th century, the Natomas area was part of the greater American and Sacramento River floodplains. Melissa feels the prospector spirit has become entrenched on the property, staking his “claim” long before any housing developments were ever built there. The two familial spirits are trying to protect the family. All three investigators sense the prospector spirit. All three investigators also hone in on what they believe is an active portal in the master bedroom closet, where the K2 temperature alarm is registering cold spots 10 degrees cooler than in the bedroom (the closet door is always kept open) and EMF (electromagnetic field) hits of 20+ milligauss inside the closet.

Having identified the areas of the strongest EMFs, the group then conducted a full cleansing of the home, including the attic space, using white sage, Palo Santo wood, sea salt lines, red brick dust, and tar water.

In the weeks following the investigation, the clients reported that the house felt lighter, they were getting much more rest, and their daughter told them that the black mist was gone, and she had seen “Grandpa” and light energy in her room, but did not feel scared.

4 weeks after the investigation, the client contacted the S.P.I.R.I.T. team to say there had been knocking on the walls, windows, and roof from the outside, once again frightening their daughter. The difference was, that the disturbance was coming from outside the home.

S.P.I.R.I.T. members Jon, Brent, Melissa, Jon and Wendy returned to the home to perform a renewal cleansing, focusing more on the property and anchor / energy grid the entire property with the strategic placement of protective stones. Since the second visit property anchoring, all negative paranormal activity has ceased in the home, and only the protective and welcome familial spirits have remained.

Conclusion: Human spirit infestation intent on staying that had to be banished from the property altogether.

Case Closed.

Opening Pandora’s Mine

The S.P.I.R.I.T. team was contacted by the paranormal group NCI (Non Corporeal Investigations) in Sacramento for a joint investigation in Placerville, California. The occupants of the country home in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains had contacted NCI with an emergency request for immediate help. The occupants claim was that the home had suddenly “exploded” in paranormal activity for no discernible reason. There had reportedly been no previous paranormal activity in the home.

Four members of the S.P.I.R.I.T. team and two members of NCI met at the driveway to the home in Coloma. This presented the first challenge – a  S.P.I.R.I.T. member does in fact own a 4×4 vehicle, but sadly, we didn’t bring it on this occasion.

Our destination

Well, live and learn. We parked the cars on the grass and walked up the hill, though for subsequent trips up and down the hill the homeowners graciously shuttled us in their 4×4 SUV.

colomamarshallmonument

Marshall Monument

The home in Coloma (just outside of Placerville) is located six miles from Sutter’s Mill, where gold was first discovered in California.

Upon making friends with two of the largest German Shepherds any of the team members had ever seen, the team interviewed the homeowners about the recent paranormal activity they had experienced. It turned out that the activity had begun shortly after the homeowners made a discovery on their land while clearing a portion of their property for an orchard they planned to start: the vertical opening to a long forgotten mine shaft / claim that had been filled in, sealed off, and grown over with dense vegetation for decades. The homeowner then decided to excavate the opening, breaking the seal of time and opening the mine. The same evening they did this, their home reportedly exploded in paranormal activity, including flickering lights, the dogs tracking unseen objects and never letting their guard down, unexplained knocks on the walls and footsteps on the wooden floors, and unexplained shadows in doorways. Because of the geographical location, and the vertical dig style to access what once was undoubtedly a vein of gold on the hilltop, matching the “claim style” of dig that was common at the time, it is extremely likely that the homeowners had uncovered a forgotten and more than likely mined out small claim shaft dating back to the beginning of California’s Gold Rush, which began with the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill on January 24th, 1848.

The Investigation:

Team members set about documenting an abnormal number of bright orbs in the home (the home was not at all dusty). Of particular note, notice how the dogs appear to be looking at the orbs and even guarding against them as the orbs attempt to and do enter the home from outside. This makes a strong case that these orbs, captured in flash photography, are not mere dust: the dogs are seeing and reacting to them.

coloma4_fotor

More indoor orbs captured in the home that don’t seem to be explainable at this level of occurrence:coloma6_fotor

The team was also able to verify the phenomenon of shadows crossing doorways with two pictures taken within seconds of each other, both taken with a flash:coloma7_fotor

coloma5_fotorNext, the team conducted a Spirit Box session with the SB 11 Spirit Box.

When asked who they were and why they were in the home, we got the clear reply, “Miners.”

When asked if they knew what year it was the SB11 said “2005.” (There was an old calendar from 2005 hanging on the wall in the room where the session took place.)

When asked if they knew what all of the devices we were using were (K2 meters, digital recorders, MEL Meter) we got the clear reply “Science.”

These SB11 Spirit Box hits do, in the opinion of the S.P.I.R.I.T. team, go well beyond coincidence and make a reasonable case for intelligent spirit communication.

The team then conducted an EVP session. We ask how many spirits were there with us and we receive a Class A EVP “2-4.” This is significant for two reasons: First, it substantiates the level of paranormal activity that was seen elsewhere in the investigation, as well as the level of activity claimed by the homeowners, validating their experiences. Second, in the 1800s, it was a common practice for mine workers and other blue collar workers to say each digit separately and clearly for numbers with more than two digits – this was often to be heard over the noise of machinery. This practice is still common in some vocations even today.

The Cleansing:

The team saged the house and advised the spirits in the home that they could move on. The occupants were instructed on re-saging the house, and encouraging the spirits to move on. The homeowners were also advised to plant a fruit tree at the mine entrance (they resealed the mine for safety purposes) in memoriam of the miners who apparently lost their lives in the mine over 150 years ago.

Conclusion:

Given the fact that the homeowners had never experienced any paranormal activity before, and were suddenly inundated with paranormal activity inside and outside of their home upon opening the mine, and given the fact that NCI and S.P.I.R.I.T. were able to verify much of the activity being claimed, we feel that there is a strong case to be made here that sometime shortly after the beginning of the California Gold Rush in the mid-1800s, a group of 24 miners lost their lives in a small claim and were never heard from again. Given that many gold diggers in the Gold Rush were from other parts of the country, and the site is only 6 miles from Sutter’s Mill, this is a completely plausible scenario, given the evidence. Indeed, small mining teams routinely consisted of between 22 to 33 miners, depending on the size of the strike, during the California Gold Rush, according to Wikipedia.com.

The homeowners followed the team’s advice, saging the home regularly and planting a fruit tree at the mine site, remembering the miners at long last.

No further paranormal activity has been reported in the home.

The Guardians, Family, and a Drinking Buddy in Granite Bay

November 14, 2015

The S. P. I. R. I. T. team was called to the country home of Gil and Denise in Granite Bay, California.granite-bay-map_fotor_fotor
The clients say that objects have moved by themselves in the home, their two dogs often track something or someone invisible moving across the room, pennies are often found in a trail on the hardwood floor, and loud unexplained noises are often heard in the living room in the middle of the night. Full body apparitions of two men in top hats as well as a man in a flat longshoreman’s hat have been reported in the hallway connecting the living room and the master bedroom.page1image23448_fotor_fotor It is worth noting that Gil’s former spouse passed away several years ago in the master bedroom. 
The house has east and west wings extending off of either side of the main living room and kitchen areas. The master bedroom and office are in the west wing, while the east wing houses a meditation / quiet room. Most of the reported paranormal activity in the home has been in the living room / kitchen area, the west wing, and the hallway connecting the two. The master bathroom has two large mirrors directly facing each other creating an “infinite hallway” optical illusion. Many paranormal researchers believe that having two mirrors facing each other in such a fashion can be used by spirits to create an entry portal into the home from the other side.page1image23616_fotor_fotor

THE INVESTIGATION


The investigation began in the master bathroom. Investigators taking baseline K-11 and MEL-Meter readings were surprised when the devices spiked sporadically in front of the mirrors where the “infinite hallway” effect in the mirrors was the most observable. No electronic devices were found on the bathroom counter that could explain the K-11 spikes. Moreover, the spikes responded to investigators’ questions, lighting up when investigators asked if there were spirits present, and if they knew that they were dead. The temperature fluctuated during the EMF spikes from 65 degrees to 73 degrees, even though the home has central heating.
 After documenting the master bedroom / master bathroom EMF spikes, photography was taken in the west wing that showed two orbs in the master bedroom, and a large unexplained purple mist captured at the entrance to the west wing hallway from the kitchen. The mist does not appear to be caused by light refraction, has no identifiable source, and is not in a photograph of the hallway taken from the same position and angle one second later. The photograph of the purple mist, in conjunction with a related SB-11 Spirit Box hit later in the evening, is being classified as paranormal in nature.

The second investigative round revolved around the use of the dual channel SB-11 Spirit Box in the master bedroom and office. Multiple SB-11 hits showed probable intelligent spirit communication by multiple spirits – Gil’s former spouse, and a dear friend who Gil described as a “drinking buddy” who has passed, both identified themselves by their own names and said “Hi!” to Gil. Denise’s father also came through via K-11 communication and SB-11 hits. The SB-11 also picked up communication by two other entities who identified themselves as “The Guardians.” When asked if they were the source of the purple haze we photographed, and the men in the top hats that Gil and Denise have both seen in the west wing hallway, the SB-11 replied, “Yeah – it’s us.”

page2image14040_fotor_fotor

Outside, a large self-illuminated orb was captured in motion over the pool, but not enough information was gathered to connect this orb to any one spirit in the home.

With repeated spirit box confirmation that the paranormal activity in the home is being caused by spirits of deceased family members, an old drinking buddy, and guardians attached to the land itself from long ago, no cleansing was needed or requested — the spirits are there to protect and watch over this country home. With recognition and acceptance of the spirits’ presence and the reason for their presence, it is likely that the “attention getting” paranormal activity in the home will now diminish in both frequency and intensity, and settle into more of a background familial haunting.

The Apartment Stuck Between Worlds

(Note: This article is written in the first person, because the home being investigated for this article was the author’s home)

S.P.I.R.I.T. team members gathered at my apartment home in the La Riviera Dr. neighborhood of Sacramento to investigate and communicate what I have classified as an active “Casper haunting.” By the end of the evening, there was no debate that the apartment is very haunted. A ‘Casper haunting” is different from a familial haunting. A Casper haunting may have little to do with any family members, but the spirits are considered friendly to the home’s occupant or occupants, often even helpful. My home is haunted by six spirits: three children, my great uncle, a female entity attached to the land, and a male entity attached to me who I think of as a “spirit guide.”
The initial investigation of my home took place on April 7, 2013. That was when I found out that I was being haunted not only by my great uncle, but by two other adults and three children. Therefore, this was both an investigation and a simple spirit communication, since most of the information presented in this article is information I had already put together, since that original investigation.img_3839img_3840
I grew up in a country home in Northern Wyoming in the 1970s. The house was terribly haunted by a dark, sinister force, and many spirits controlled by that dark force, an experience that has led to my lifelong pursuit of the paranormal. Above the downstairs fireplace in that home hung a picture – a picturesque mountain scene done on canvas. I always found that picture quite calming. It turns out that the spirits of three children who may have been brutally murdered in that Wyoming ranch home in the 1960s had attached themselves to that picture and ended up going wherever the picture went – truly a “haunted painting.”
That picture now hangs above my bar in my Sacramento apartment, and as such the three children who watched me grow up now haunt my apartment and have become attached to me. I have no real idea why my great uncle is hanging out, other than the fact that he always really liked me as a kid. The other two spirits in the apartment are more vague in a way – the adult female spirit I know very little about, and the male is a “spirit guide” type of spirit that I picked up back in 1996 when I went through a phase in which I was very interested in Native American culture. This male spirit has always proven to be helpful and protective.

img_3843

The Haunted Painting

INVESTIGATION
The evening began by taking baseline K-11 meter readings, and then placing a K-11 meter with the temperature alarm and the MEL Meter on a chair in the hall between the bathroom and the master bedroom. When Kara approached the chair the temperature alarm went off to three levels – indicating an instant 15 degree drop in temperate at the device. Kara then felt a small child “hugging her legs.” Feeling disembodied human hands on you is a regular occurrence in the apartment. The K-11 meter / temperature alarm was then used to communicate with the spirit of the child and actually play a guessing game (which hand or pocket is the nickel in?) with the spirit. This was captured on camera. During this time, multiple self-illuminated orbs can be plainly seen in the video clips darting back and forth, going into investigators, and even making right angle turns.
In the master bedroom, Shawnda and Jason captured more bright, self-illuminated orbs entering and exiting the bedroom, making right angle turns into the living room.
EVP’s were inconclusive, but an SB-11 Spirit Box session resulted in ongoing interaction between the group and the three children spirits, who clearly identified themselves as Peter, Emily, and Boyd. This confirmed information empathed earlier by Melissa that these were in fact these childrens’ names, and that they had used the painting to escape the dark forces in the house that I grew up in, the same house in which they were murdered. When prompted, the children clearly spoke out their own names on the SB11 Spirit Box. They identify with Brent and Melissa as parental figures.

Conclusion:
Based upon the evidence gathered during this investigation, on the ongoing high level of Casper-like activity in my apartment home, and upon previous research I have done into the history of my childhood home, the S.P.I.R.I.T. team decided to reach out to the current owners of the Wyoming home and offer a full-scale professional investigation of the entire area. Sadly, they were not interesting in bringing up the past.

The Stubborn Ghost of Rancho Murrieta

img_3837img_3838Article by Brent L. George
June 17, 2016

The S.P.I.R.I.T. team members Melissa, Jon, Wendy, and Brent were dispatched to the home of “Leigh” in Rancho Murieta, CA. Leigh lives in a private gated community; the homes there were built in the 1990s. Leigh is the second owner of the home.
Leigh has complained of noises and footsteps at night, and a recurring nightmare where she feels she has forgotten something important, and now everyone is going to die because of her mistake. She wakes up in a cold sweat almost every night from the nightmare, and is getting very little sleep. She feels constantly watched.
Leigh is married with two children, ages 16 and 10. Her husband and 16 year old son say they have not noticed any paranormal activity in the home, but the 10 year old daughter says there is a woman who watches her while she sleeps, hovering over or her, occasionally retreating to the closet. Leigh has decided to have her husband and children out of the house during the investigation.

The Investigation
The S.P.I.R.I.T. team arrived at 7 p.m. Two orb shots were captured in the living room, and sporadic K-11 hits that cannot be easily explained were detected throughout the house and in the garage. A self-illuminated orb was captured in the attic above the children’s bedrooms. Melissa felt that the activity in the house centered mainly on the Master bedroom. She detects the spirit of an old man who was attached to the property before the gated community was ever built, and the spirit of a young woman who, in Melissa’s words, seems “trapped.”
Through two EVP sessions, no EVPs are captured. The team then deploys the SB11 Spirit Box, and begins to receive responses almost immediately. A Class A spirit box response in a female voice says “Help me!” Melissa asks if she needs help finding the light. A second response in the same voice says, “He won’t let me go.” This seems to validate Melissa’s impression of a female spirit who feels trapped.
The team is then able to get the male spirit to respond on the SB-11, in a deep, clear voice – a Class A response states his name is “Richard.” When asked what he wants with the female spirit, we receive the response, “Mine.”
The team explains to the male spirit that neither the house nor the woman are “his” and he needs to move on. Melissa is able to guide the female spirit to move to the light as she talks to and distracts the male spirit. The entire group feels the female spirit cross over. A final SB-11 hit from the woman simply says “See ya!.”
The team turns their attention back to the male spirit. He is encouraged to cross over as well. The SB-11 hit “Bad” is heard. I explain to him that when he crosses over, he will learn lessons and go to a kind of school to learn from his mistakes, but he will not necessarily go to Hell, as long as he wants to move forward and is sorry. The SB-11 Spirit Box returns the chilling Class A response, “Preacher.” I assure him I am not a preacher.
In the end, we were not able to cross the male spirit over, and a full cleansing of the house had to be performed, using Holy Water, red brick dust, and tar water, and anchoring stones.
Over the next week, Leigh states that the house feels lighter, and the nightmares have stopped. Leigh’s daughter tells her mother without any prompting that the woman who watches her sleep is gone.
The cleansing appears to hold for four months. As of the writing of this article, Leigh’s nightmares have returned, and the S.P.I.R.I.T. team is scheduled to conduct a re-cleansing of the home.
Further research uncovered that the former owner of the home was a police officer who had been involved in an officer-involved shooting and subsequently retired.
It is unclear why the cleansing didn’t “stick” in this case, but it serves as a reminder that there are no guarantees when dealing with the paranormal. The stubborn male entity may have found a way back into the home the team hadn’t thought of, possibly by lingering on the property waiting for any excuse “back in” – the re-cleansing of the home and full property cleansing will include a stone (creates a protective energy grid) re-anchoring of the entire property.
It is the policy of the S.P.I.R.I.T. team to always return to a client location if requested, if unwanted paranormal activity should continue. Stubborn or negative spirits occasionally wait around for excuses or informal invitations to come back. While it is not common, we are prepared to remind them they have to leave completely and move on. Staying around the Earth plane harassing the living is never acceptable.

Conclusion: Probable Human Spirit Infestation Intent on Staying. Case remains open as activity continues, and a second cleansing is scheduled.

Queen Mary promenade deck – Thursday 2/2/17. General photography. Known haunted area. Two strange figures showed up at the end of the hallway which was empty of humans except the two investigators behind the camera. One appears to be a standing man, the other a female bending or sitting into a wall.

WHO HAUNTS MY HOUSE?

Article by Brent L. George
Investigation on January 10th, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Davis, CA

The team is called to a home in Davis, CA, near the UC Davis Campus. Five people live in this 3 bedroom home. Two of the occupants have felt watched and constantly followed and harassed by what they describe as a strong voyeuristic male entity in the home. Their experiences have consistently matched when they compared notes.

Of particular note was the paranormal activity and / or presence they felt in the attached garage, which they partially used as a home office and design studio. A frosted opaque bathroom window is directly accessible from the garage. Directly below this window hung an antique mirror, which has since been taken down. Mirrors are thought by many to amplify and / or enable spirit activity in certain circumstances.

The Investigation

Two one hour sessions were conducted. Through Melissa’s use of the P-SB11 Spirit Box, contact was made in the master bedroom with the male voyeuristic entity. The entity spoke through the device, confirming that there were three people in the room, and that one of them was “a Dodgers fan.”  During the investigative round in the master bedroom, the K2 meter and the Mel Meter both recorded sporadic “floating” unexplained spikes in electromagnetic energy in the middle of the room, which occurred in different places around the room at different times. These EMF spikes coincided with sudden cold spots around the room that set off the K2 meter’s temperature change alarm. The entity was asked how it died, and it replied (through the P-SB11) only that “I did.”  As the investigators continued to try to locate any possible source for the floating EMF spikes, the P-SB11 Spirit Box said clearly, “What are they doing?”

In the second one hour investigative round, several orbs were caught on camera by different team members. A large orb showed up in one picture in the bathroom window from the garage; the orb was not present in any other shots of the bathroom window from the garage.

The K2 meter and temperature alarm began spiking without reason in the garage area. One of the investigators asked the entity to make the temperature alarm go off to let us know the device was under spirit influence. This began a series of intelligent responses from the temperature alarm in response to yes and no questions from investigators. The alarm never went off in the garage after this point in the investigation, except in direct and immediate response to a yes or no question, and only when the answer to the question appeared to be a “yes.” This entire “conversation” using only a K2 temperature alarm was documented and caught on film.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the home was smudged and cleansed.  Since the investigation, the occupants have stated that the paranormal activity in the home has ceased, but that a “creepy feeling” does still sometimes linger in the house. The occupants were advised to re-smudge the home on a regular basis in the coming few weeks.

Conclusion:

Based upon the intelligent and accurate responses received via the P-SB11 Spirit Box, personal experiences by team members feeling the entity’s actual presence throughout the investigation, recorded EMF spikes and repeatable and measurable cold spots, along with intelligent communication using the temperature alarm, this haunting is being classified as a negative haunting by the spirit of a deceased man, possibly the home’s original owner.

Case closed. Classification: Negative human entity / haunting.
