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 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.
