Have up you ever felt drawn to living in a certain house?
Do you think incessantly about investigating a specific location?
Do you have repetitive weird, very real dreams that make you feel like you have been somewhere else?
Have you seen an entity and cannot get it out of your head?
Let’s face it, investigating the supernatural is interesting. It takes us to unique places and lets us put puzzles together. It combines history and the unknown. The possibilities are endless. Paranormal investigation stimulates the mind and gives you a body rush. You get an endorphin dose from engaging an entity. Adrenaline spikes. It gives you a ‘high’ so to speak.
Far from the kook fringe, investigating the paranormal is a very worthy job. It matters and is furthering our knowledge about the afterlife, ET’s, parasites, thought forms, and even other universes. Researchers should always be aware that that there are both good and bad elements in the supernatural. Either can lure you to a location or into interaction.
If you are lucky, it is a benevolent spirit who wants to communicate. Sometimes they want to tell their story, give comfort to family left behind, or help solve an old crime.What may at first come across as a scary haunting may just been Aunt Teresa coming around to let you know she is all right. These spirits are persistent and will keep trying to interact until they get their message across. They will take up your energy and batteries, but it isn’t malicious. Of course these are the best cases where you give people comfort and may even solve a crime.
On the other hand, dark entities will seduce you into coming to a property or interacting with them. They feed that way. Their purpose is to cause you harm. Because of this, they typically don’t reveal who they really are right up front. It takes time. They will give away bits of information to keep you coming back to them, but they never give you the truth. Information will be inconsistent. They want you so invested in dealing with them that they may give you compliments or even warnings which appear to help you avoid a problem.
Yet with time, this changes. You will feel anxiety if you are not interacting. Some have described the feeling as that of being desperate. You HAVE to go back. You MUST get information. You are obsessed. Such entities can reach into your dreams, your subconscious. They will engage you there and interrupt your sleep to draw you back.
You feel compelled to interact again.
Most cannot explain why they are so obsessed. They just are. The fact is that the entity was luring you using manipulation. They will give you signs and reminders to go back to the haunted location. They will keep performing ‘parlor tricks’ to get your attention. You won’t be left alone.
If you are in this situation, you must separate yourself from that haunting. It is for your own safety. You have to force yourself to give it up and make sure you take care of yourself. You can detach from it. Some investigators have developed extreme anxiety after such a case. It can impact your mental health.
You can encounter just about anything when you are out there investigating. I’m sure you were already aware of that. But sometimes even the most experienced investigators can get in over their heads quickly. The dark entities don’t play fair, and by the time you may realize something is wrong, you are already too far in. You might not realize that your excitement and passion has turned into something else.
Always pay attention to your own mind and what is happening in your life. If you ever get to the point where you say ‘it can’t happen to me,’ that’s when you will likely be attacked.

Life is hard. We get knocked down again and again. Sometimes it is too much, and you may decide to close yourself off from the world and not open your heart again. Too much pain and loss can make you feel as if you can’t breathe. If your heart has been broken by the loss of a loved one, you may think you will never be happy again.
There are many ways to try to heal a broken heart. Support groups. Therapy with a good professional can be very helpful. Yet sometimes it is not enough. If you have been massively hurt, the pain can make you despondent.
I am a retired criminal profiler and worked many serial murder cases as well as doing volunteer work for parents of murdered children. While working with POMC, it was obvious that the pain these parents feel is crushing. You can see it in their eyes and feel it when you are around them. And they are the most likely to fall into the pit of despair. Often, they just cannot move forward and therapy does not help.
In such situations, I have seen people’s lives turn around when they get a message from their deceased loved ones. Sometimes it comes in the form of a sign, dreams, visions, voices, messages and synchronicities.
One mother named Muriel told me how her daughter loved ladybugs. After her daughter’s death, Muriel’s depression was too much to handle. She could not even get out of bed most days. Life had become meaningless with her totally broken heart. Finally, when she could take it no more, she begged her daughter out loud to show her a sign. Please show her a sign.
Not really expecting anything, she forced herself to go out into the backyard. She gasped when she saw ladybugs everywhere. They were all over the place. Beautiful, beautiful lady bugs! This had never happened before or since. Muriel dropped to her knees and began crying. She knew it was a sign from her daughter. Better yet, as she was sobbing, a ladybug flew over and landed on her hand. For the first time since her daughter’s death, she smiled. This was a clear sign and as Muriel said, it saved her life. Just that little bit of contact let her know her daughter was all right.
In another case, a widower’s son was murdered. Michael had lost his wife, then his son. And he was suicidal. He didn’t see any meaning in going forward. What was the point, he thought. He wanted to die to join his family. It got so bad, he was ready to commit suicide. He was set to take an overdose of pills and end it all. As he sat on the side of the bed with the pill bottle in his hand, he heard a tapping at his window. This was on the second floor of the home. At first he ignored it. Then it happened again. Intent on joining his family, he was ready to down the pills when he heard his son’s voice yelling “Dad!” Not once, but twice.
He turned with a start and saw his son standing there in front of the window. It was only a split second, but he saw his son. He was sure of it. His son had been there. It startled him so much he dropped the bottle, and the pills scattered everywhere. Michael got up and looked out the window, but no one was there. Just then he saw his pill bottle roll all by itself under the bed.
For a moment he stood there dumbfounded. In an instant, he began to cry. His son had come to make sure he didn’t kill himself. His son had saved him. His son showed him that he was not alone. His son had pushed the pill bottle away. The visit was more than enough to awaken Michael and get him going again. He was able to move forward and know his son and wife weren’t really gone forever. He said it was the best thing that could have happened at that moment, and it allowed him to heal.
I’ve got tons of stories like this where spirits came at just the right time. The spirit visits were so powerful, they healed broken hearts and allowed those grieving to realize that they can go on. There is more to this life than we can see. And if we pay close attention, spirits give us signs all the time to remind us that they are here with us.
My advice to you is: Listen to the spirits who are there to help you. They may come to you in a dream, and you will know it is real because it will feel very different than a regular dream. It will feel completely real.
Spirits may talk to you as a little voice letting you know you are loved. The voice is always positive. Never negative.
Spirits will show us signs. Lots of people will see feathers in strange places, a bird, butterflies, coins, or some other special totem which you know represents your loved one.
When you realize that your loved one is still with you, you can begin the process of healing. You will be able to breathe again and heal your broken heart.
Don’t be surprised if after reading this you notice a sign from your loved ones.

We are all psychic. Whether you realize it or not, you have psychic abilities. Some call it intuition. Others call it a gut instinct. Whatever you personally want to call it, you do have this ability.
We all have spirits around us. Our loved ones who have crossed over come to visit us. Some of you out there have ghosts in your homes. And though it can seem scary, you do have the ability to talk to spirits.
It takes a lot of practice, especially if you are not used to it. But you can do it. Find a nice and quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Make yourself comfortable and take three or four deep breaths. You have to be in a safe place where nothing will bother you. If you can’t focus, you won’t be able to connect.
First you must ground yourself. You need to relax and clear your mind of all the stress and clutter in your life. Second, focus on the spirit you want to talk to. Make it clear in your mind that you ONLY want to talk to certain spirits. If you are a person of faith, ask to be protected as you contact the other side. That way no stray ghosts or other entities can come bother you.
As you concentrate on a specific spirit, try to picture that spirit. If it is your mother who has crossed over, remember how she used to look. Maybe you are trying to talk to your dog that died last year. Picture your furry friend in your mind. Perhaps you lost a child, and of course, you will never forget how your son or daughter looked. Whether it is a person or a pet, you can contact either one. Try to hold a picture in your mind as you relax and focus on that spirit.
Keep these images in you thoughts, relax, and ask to speak to your spirit. Don’t get upset if you don’t get results right away. It may take you a while to figure out how spirits are communicating with you. If your grief is too much, it may block your ability to communicate. So don’t give up. It may take a long time to get through.
Sometimes when you ask your spirit a question, an answer will pop in your mind. Yes, this answer is coming from your loved one. You can ask several questions, but what you will find is that you get tired quickly when focusing on getting an answer. That is because spirit is using your energy to talk to you. So be careful not to do too much at once. Naturally you can do this every day if you wish. The more you do it, the better you become. But don’t panic if you find yourself getting really tired while doing this.
While some people can get answers using this method, other times, nothing SEEMS to come through. In that case, your spirit may talk to you in another way. You may begin to see signs. If you mom loved blue jays, all of a sudden you will see blue jays. If your pet used to run down the stairs, you may hear that sound all over again. You could hear your child’s laughter. Children who have crossed over make a special effort to come to their parents when their parents are really suffering.
If you pay really close attention, you will start to see signs, things that meant something to your loved one. If you are not careful, you can easily miss these signs. You must watch for them. But I promise you, if you ask your spirit for these signs, your loved one will give them to you. They love you and want to make you happy.
There are other ways to communicate with spirits. There are spirit boxes and other mechanical methods. Some use spirit knocks (asking the spirit to knock once for yes and twice for no). And clever researchers are always coming up with new ways to get through to the other side. But the truth is that you don’t really need a device to talk to spirits, especially your loved ones. They will come to you in dreams and do their best to answer you in your mind or send you signs.
This doesn’t mean that ghost detectors don’t have their place in contacting spirits. It just means that for me, I prefer using psychic ability. And for my dear readers, I recommend using your own thoughts to contact spirit because it doesn’t cost you anything!!!
Keep the faith and keep trying. You will get through if you really seek to find a spirit. If your heart is sincere, they will come to you.

Spirits attack people.They really do. Though some people will find it hard to believe, paranormal investigators get a big target on their backs once they investigate a negative haunting.
Dark entities have long memories. If you had anything to do with interrupting their plans, they will come calling for you. It is your choice whether you believe this or not.However, too many people have gone through this hell not to pay attention to the warnings.
Evil entities are known to wait long periods of time before they strike. So you may think that nothing happened, but after a while, you will notice some unusual patterns.
First, investigators will often experience poltergeist activity in their homes.The activity includes loud bangs, footsteps, voices calling to you, cold spots, scratches, falls, and things moving on their own, just to name a few.
At the same time, there are nightmares or weird dreams. Evil will announce that it is on its way by communicating with your unconscious. If it doesn’t rattle things around your home, it will enter your dreams. It may do both. You will have bizarre and often scary nightmares. These usually occur within 3 months of the investigation. The dreams are powerful, and you know something abnormal is happening. Some blow it off, chalking it up to stress. Yet, it isn’t always just stress. Remember, you entered into something when you engaged it, and it learned who you are.
There are investigators who get sick after their investigations. Everything from strokes to heart attacks have occurred. Other investigators have more subtle issues. Ongoing headaches will take over after a life of having none. Autoimmune disorders pop up. Neurological issues develop. Things just won’t be right with your health.
Then you will experience all kinds of bad luck. People in your life will die unexpectedly. Your pets get sick or die. Your home has problem after problem. Your car suddenly acts up. Work issues begin. People will act differently around you, not like their normal selves. Your life will become strange as unexplained weird things happen, and it won’t stop.The string of bad luck is continuous. That is the key.
Not all who investigate will have these things at first. But with time, you will have something happen at some point. You will experience negative effects from dealing with dark entities. You will know because it will be incessant, bad, and unusual. In other words, you will have weird after weird bad thing happen to the point that those around you raise an eyebrow. People will back away from you. Everyone will see that it is not normal.
After a while, you will find yourself unable to relax. Anxiety will take over. This leads to more sleeplessness which makes you less alert and prone to accidents. And you WILL have accidents.
I tell you this not to scare you but to prepare you. Too many people jump into ghost hunting not knowing what the repercussions could be. I personally know people who have experienced REALLY bad things after dealing with negative hauntings. You must prepare before you investigate. Protect yourself using tools from your belief system. Make sure you have your head on straight before you investigate. Even then, you still may experience horrible things, and if that happens, you will need to enlist the help of religious people and other experts to put the activity to rest. That is if it is simply a spirit. If it is aliens, then the dire situation is entirely different, and you are in real trouble.
I know people who have quit investigating the paranormal after having experienced something dark. These are not cowards. These are former police officers. So keep this in mind before you take on a project. Know your enemy and protect yourself. There are things out there which can hurt you.

If you fear that you will never see your beloved pet again, then let me assure you that your pet is still with you. Animals go to the other side, and they love nothing more than seeing you. Their spirits are right in front of you, but too many times you just can’t see them. Let your broken heart heal knowing that they are still with you.
Have you felt your dear car curl up on you lap after he passed? Maybe you have heard your dog’s bark or your bird chirp. The truth is that they are still here looking after you. They loved you so much in life, so why would you ever believe that they would leave your side?
Animals can be some of the most pure, loving spirits. They bring us love and companionship when others have left us. They are always so happy to see us and want nothing more than our love in return. If you have loved a dear pet in your life and you miss that pet, then realize that their love is with you. They look out for you from the other side.
What you might notice is that when you are going through a particularly bad time, you may feel your old pet rubbing against your leg or walking across your keyboard! One woman reported going through a terrible time when her husband died. She had lost her dear Bessie, her cat. As she grieved for her husband and her furry friend, she experienced something miraculous. One day her grief was too much for her, and she was crying as she sat at her computer. With her hands shaking on the keyboard, she actually felt Bessie walk across her fingers as she typed like the cat always did in life! This happened several times and just this act by her beloved Bessie was enough to help the woman stop crying. That is how strong the connection is between loved pet and human.
As you miss your pet, you might even start seeing it. Sometimes if you are particularly sensitive, you may see your animal in your home. If you do, then know it is your pet coming to say hello. They want you to see them so that you won’t hurt so much. They love you.
Other times pets come back to play with their old friends. In one case, two dogs spent their entire lives together. One died, and the other went into a terrible depression. The family could not get her to eat or do anything. She was dying of grief. Then all of a sudden, she got up and ran around playing as if she was with her old dog friend. She ran around in circles, crouching and jumping, just like she always did with her partner. She’d bark at what seemed like nothing. It was then that the family began experiencing activity of their own. Their oldest son saw the dog that had passed away. Others heard his bark. The family then knew their dear dog was still with them and doing everything he could to help his old friend heal from his passing.
It shouldn’t surprise you that your pets are still with you. Love never dies, especially love for animals. And your pets know how you feel about them. They know more than people give them credit for. Have you ever noticed that your pet tries to comfort you when you feel down? They do the same thing from the other side. Their connection with you will not be cut.
If your pet has crossed over, and you feel sad, then take a deep breath and call your pet to you in your mind. I guarantee that your pet will come. You may not be able to see it, but your pet will be at your side or in your lap. They love you that much. Don’t be surprised if when you call them that you begin to see unusual things go on in your home. That will be your pet letting you know that he is there.
Furthermore, in every psychic reading I have done where an animal has come through, the dear pet has ALWAYS said thank you to his human pal for taking care of him. They know what you do for them and are grateful. They will repay your love forever.

All right. I know this article is going to sound especially weird. So buckle up and come with me into some really strange material.
In the last year, I have had an abundance of people contacting me about seeing a large hairy creature which stands upright in their homes at night. To be blunt, the animal looks like a Bigfoot.
Until this past year, I have not heard about this happening a lot. But I have case after case with people seeing this thing in their living rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. Person after person told me they saw Bigfoot in their homes. They were embarrassed about it but were afraid and needed to talk about what happened.
First, these incidences always occurred after dark.
The typical scenario is that homeowners are either asleep in bed, watching TV, or working on their laptops or tablets in the dark. They generally do not hear anything at first.
They will notice the smell in the beginning. Some say it smells like a swamp. Others say it resembles the scent of a dead animal. However you describe it, when you get a whiff of it, you cringe because it is so bad.
Naturally people get up to investigate the smell. They usually go to the bathroom to check there first due to plumbing. In some cases, witnesses caught sight of him in the hallway. Other times, he’d be seen in the kitchen. The scariest situations involved people being awakened and seeing Bigfoot standing there glaring at them. In all cases, the witnesses froze. They could not move their legs. They could not speak.
They all said the entity communicated with them telepathically. If it had awakened them, it told them to go back to sleep. If they were not sleeping at the time, he told them to forget what they saw.
None of them forgot.
Importantly, no windows or doors were open in these houses. Locks had not been disturbed. Nothing of value was taken. However, in every case, something was missing from the home. Typically, it was food or something shiny but inexpensive. In one case a sea shell which sat on the end table was missing. In another case, a dollar store girl’s headband was gone from the dresser. In that case, the family was certain it had been taken because though cheap, it was their little girl’s favorite thing in the whole world. It had sequins and was very shiny.
Foods which tended to be taken included mainly fruits.
From there it gets even more weird. Though things were missing from these homes, other objects from the outdoors were always left behind.
These objects included:
Clump of dark hair
Pile of dirt
The objects were always placed in a prominent location so homeowners would see them.
On the kitchen counter
On the kitchen table
On the recliner cushion
In front of the TV
The incident was enough to make one of the families move. This was understandably frightening for a family with small children. Though the creature did not harm them, it demonstrated it could come into their homes without disturbing locks or making noise. It could watch them sleep. I don’t care who you are. That is scary.
The question is why was this entity in their homes? This is not common. When you think of Bigfoot, you think of the outdoors.
Is Bigfoot coming indoors since so many have been stuck inside. If so, why? That doesn’t make sense. Why take fruit and small cheap items? Why tell people who saw him to forget or go back to sleep? What was the real reason for going into homes?
It is important to note that the entity never harmed anyone. Though it scared them, Bigfoot did not do anything violent.
I know this sounds bizarre, but I had so many tell me these stories over the past year, I couldn’t ignore it. My research has focused more on extraterrestrials and spirits. It has only been more recently that I have been contacted by several people who have encountered Bigfoot. Personally, I feel that it is all related.
We are going through so many changes on this planet. Perhaps Bigfoot is changing too. Maybe this is something entirely different. Another species? Another type of entity mimicking Bigfoot? At this point, we just don’t know. What we do know is a lot of people witness this creature every year. They all can’t be wrong. It isn’t simply crazy people seeing things. Whole families have witnessed the creature. The history stretches back a long time.
The question is: what happens next?

If you are a paranormal investigator, then you likely have come across the phenomenon of evidence disappearing. I have had this happen, and I know others who have noticed the phenomenon too.
Personally, I have had evidence regarding ET’s disappear from my computers, hard drives, and other storage. For me it never happens with ghost, poltergeist or other cases. Yet I know people who have had pictures of a Bigfoot, a spirit, a demon, and video as well. All of them have had their evidence mysteriously wiped from phones, cameras, storage etc. Many of us have redundant backups. In other words, we don’t save in just one place, and we verify when it is saved to make sure it is there.
What may be a bit scary is when hard copies of pictures and documents have gone missing too. Even though in locked cabinets or safes, evidence still evaporates without explanation. There have been no break ins. No one has been near the evidence. It is just gone without a trace.
It seems like the more consequential the evidence, the more likely it is to disappear. Naturally this makes things more frustrating than they already are. The paranormal is evasive enough. Add in disappearing evidence, and it becomes even more difficult to study.
Of course we all know that the paranormal is unexplained in so many ways. The more you study it, the more weird it gets. When you see evidence disappear first hand right in front of you, you really begin scratching your head. I’ve had cases where recorders will capture a voice, be played, and then when that recording is replayed again the voice is gone. Multiple people have witnessed this. Same recording with other background noises still there, yet the voice is gone.
Some say investigators are hearing a real time voice or seeing a spirit in real time on a video recorder. This could be so, however sometimes activity is on video, and it is played for several people. Then the fifth person who sees it will say there is nothing in the video. The four before him saw it. Yet the fifth and those after see nothing in the video from then on. Same video. Same background. But the image or activity is gone.
There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason as why some pieces of evidence go missing while others do not. It does look like in some of these cases, the paranormal is still impacting investigators and evidence itself after an event. It makes sense because those of you out there who have seen a Bigfoot, a poltergeist, spirit, or even an ET know that afterward, it is common to experience paranormal activity at home. There is a link.
Could an entity use its mind to wipe the evidence away? Are we as investigators somehow using our minds to do it? How do hard copies go missing? At this point, I’m not sure. The only thing I am positive of is that it does occur.
If you have any theories on this, let me know. I am always open to hear from others.
