Dark attacks after investigating a haunting

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

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.

Special needs community and ghosts

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

If you have special needs, you very likely have a unique ability to interact with the paranormal. I’ve been talking to a lot of people with varying special needs ( CP, Autism, and others). In doing so, I have found something remarkable. Many have strong ties to spirits. This can be jarring and unexpected. However, most adjust well when they understand what is happening.

Some of the amazing skills they have include:

Talking to spirits

Seeing ghosts

Having increased psychic ability

  1. Talking to spirits. It has been said if one of your senses is compromised, then others become stronger. This is often true with those with special needs. It does not matter what your ‘this-ability’ is. People with different abilities all have been found to possess elevated skills with the supernatural. A large number naturally grow in their connection to the paranormal. They have strong skills when it comes to recognizing and even talking to spirits. These men and women do so telepathically and even through art. They draw or write as a means to communicate. This is used by spirits who are better able to talk through such individuals. Pay attention to these pieces of art and writings. They tell a story and clue you in to what is really around you.
  1. Seeing ghosts. Special needs people can often see ghosts and other entities. I’ve come across this several times over the years. I know a young boy with CP who is an excellent ghost detector. He can see spectral entities, even if they are trying to hide. No matter what is lurking in a haunted house, he has the ability to go right to it. He is remarkable. He can describe spirits with stunning detail and give you a picture of what is taking place in a haunted location. He is very shy and has has the most wonderful personality. He wants to be a paranormal researcher when he grows up.
  1. Increased psychic ability. I’ve met those who can not only see spirits and talk to them, but also predict what will happen in the future. They have strong gut instincts which you should listen to. They can warn you about people, spirits, and events which will happen. Take the time to listen to them and understand what they are telling you.It could save your life. I’ve personally seen them make some laser accurate predictions.

There is a whole other world right here, and special needs individuals can provide a window into what is right beside us. Don’t dismiss those who are different from you. Don’t assume you know what someone’s abilities are just by looking at them. Never judge a book by its cover. With skills and unique ties to spirits, it is as if many with special needs have some kind of super power. Let’s face it, being able to see a ghost or communicate with something otherworldly is kind of a super power. It is exciting to see how many exercise these abilities and the impact they have on people’s lives.

I’m doing ongoing research about those with special needs and the paranormal. If you have a story or would like to participate in research into what is going on with the supernatural, email me.  Contact: deborahkauflin @ gmail.com

Is your cat sensing a ghost?

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

Believe it or not animals are ghost detectors. In fact, they can sense all kinds of paranormal activity. They can spot a ghost, an alien, fairies, and all kinds of spectral entities. If you wonder whether something is in your home, look no further than your cat. Your furry friend will alert you when something is there.

Amazingly, cats are hypersensitive to the supernatural. They will actually seek it out. When you are in your home, you might notice that your cat will prowl around the perimeter of your home. Watch your cat when he is doing this. He’s looking for something. When an entity is around, your cat will take several daily tours around your rooms. You will notice that your cat will pause and look up. Sometimes he may hiss and arch his back. This tells you something is there. 

Next, your kitty will actually try to speak to you with his meowing. He will vocalize and make noises to try to show you there is a spirit with you. When he won’t stop meowing, be on the lookout.

There are times that a bad spirit is lurking around. When this is happening, your cat will do one of two things. He will either attack it (or try to), or he will hide. You will notice your cat peeking out from a hiding place, watching. He will be reluctant to come out. This is because something is there, and it is scaring him. 

Often, when this occurs, your cat will have a change in personality. A once friendly and loving animal will become mean and want to be alone. On the other hand, a cat who was always standoffish will want to be with you all the time. Watch out for any extreme change in behavior. 

There are even times when a spirit can make your cat sick. This is a dangerous situation. If you see the change in your cat’s behavior and all of sudden, your furry friend gets ill, then be suspicious. At this point, you may have to get someone to come to your home and do a blessing to remove the entity. Naturally you don’t want to let anything to hurt your pet. 

If you are asking whether a spirit is wandering around your home, just look to your cat. You can even ask your cat if he sees anything. When you ask, watch him. He might just lead you right to it.

Is a ghost scaring you?

Copyright Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, Ph.D.

Has something scared you but you don’t know exactly what it is? Do you think something may be haunting your home? If so, you probably have a spirit in your house. If you strongly believe that something is there, then something is there.

I know how scary it can be when you think that a ghost is lurking around every door. It is more common than you think. I’ve been studying the paranormal for 15 years and from my experience, spooky encounters are becoming more frequent. Some say it is because the veil between our realm and the other side is thinning. Whatever the reason, I’m seeing an increase in these cases.

Some signs that you are haunted are:

  1. Hearing footsteps when no one is there

On of the most common signs is when people in your home hear phantom footsteps. It is like someone is walking around when no one is there. One of the weird things about this is you will go look for where it is coming from, and it will change to always be behind you no matter where you go. It is like these entities like playing games.

2.  Hearing voices or muffled voices when no one is around

Another sign is when you hear someone talking or calling to you when no one is there. Often the voices will be muffled. You won’t be able to understand what is being said. An important key here is that more than one member of the household hears it. In most cases, multiple people hear these sounds.

3.  Pets reacting to something when nothing is around

This is a huge one. If your animals are seeing things and freaking out, then you know something is there. Animals hear frequencies we don’t. They see things we don’t. They will alert you when there is a presence in your home. Dogs will bark, growl, and spin in circles. Cats hiss, arch their backs, and even attack what the air. What is happening is they are going after a spirit. Your pets may come to you, trying to lead you somewhere. They are trying to warn you. Animals are some of the best paranormal detectors. 

4. Unusual, repetitive dreams

You may have weird nightmares night after night. You will dream about a person being killed or a tragic event. It happens over and over. You will see the same unknown people you have never seen before. You will be able to describe these unknown people to others. Bad nightmares include seeing some kind of creature. If you see a monster, that means you have something much worse than a ghost.

5. Strange shadows moving around

Sometimes spirits manifest as a shadow. They look like a dark form moving around your home. Many people report these things slinking along the floor, as if crouched down. It is creepy. People who witness this are more likely to have a negative haunting.

6. Electrical appliances acting weird

When spirits or ET’s are around, electrical equipment goes haywire. Batteries drain immediately. TV’s and lights go on an off. Toys without batteries may ‘come to life.’ This is so powerful it can even impact your cars and trucks! If you have spirit activity, you will have all kinds of difficulty with appliances, electric, and motors. 

7. Objects disappearing and reappearing someplace else

For some reason, entities seem to have fun moving our stuff around. Your keys may disappear from the counter and reappear in the bathroom drawer. Objects will be moved. You will be sure you closed your kitchen cabinet doors. Then you to into the kitchen, and they are open! You will notice if these types of things are going on. There’s no way to ignore it. 

Life is hard enough. You don’t need this kind of stress. This above is not a total list of haunted happenings. These are simply a few things to look for if you are wondering what is going on in your home. 

You may not know where to begin if something like this is happening to you. Let me tell you, there are all kinds of people who will be happy to help.There are local paranormal groups, researchers, psychics and others out there who will assist you. 

While some hauntings are benign, many are not and cause all sorts of problems. They can even make you sick. Reach out if you are worried because help is available. This is especially true if you have children in your home. Don’t suffer alone.

Are you a magnet for the paranormal?

Copyright Deborah S. Kauflin

If you are here, chances are you have spied a ghost, been visited by an alien, caught a glimpse of Bigfoot, encountered a fairy, or come across something that cannot be explained. That is OK. You are in the right place.You are amongst friends here.This is the site for all paranormal happenings. People who know me well say I am the queen of the strange and unusual. Things happen to me that just don’t happen to other people. You may have this too!

If you have seen, heard, or been touched by a paranormal entity, you are not alone. Loads of people live with this each and every day. 

Slowly, society is accepting that there is something else in this world. You can turn on Travel Channel and view a wide array of programs covering everything from demons to Mothman. This is wonderful because it mainstreams the subject. And it lets others know that these things do happen. 

I am a psychic medium and have been since I was very young. I am a retired criminal profiler and worked hundreds of serial murder, serial rape, sexual homicides and abductions across the United States. I taught thousands of detectives, police, military intelligence, CIA, FBI, attorney general investigators, prosecutors, and others.  I even interviewed 25 serial killers and mass murders for research and my Ph.D. I wrote THE book about female serial killers, creating their profiles based on my interviews with them. I also wrote a book on profiling sadistic serial killers and another book about profiling terrorists. I tell you all this because I want you to know that I’m a very serious person, and I know for a fact that the paranormal is real.

I myself have seen apparitions, felt the touch of a spirit, witnessed poltergeist activity,  even viewed aliens when doing psychic readings for alien abductees. FYI, they really are here. All this may be hard to believe, yet if you are a paranormal target, you know what I’m talking about. I’ve been studying the paranormal for about 15 years, aliens for almost 10. These things are real folks. They really are. Whether you choose to acknowledge them is up to you.

If you are a paranormal magnet, your life will be interesting, to say the least. For the unlucky, this can be absolutely terrifying. Dark energy does exist, and it attacks human beings. It goes after animals and can target every aspect of your life. Though such frightening stories are frequently featured in tv and movies, it hasn’t slowed the demonic down one bit. The darkness still terrorizes people with no end in sight.

If you have a ton of bad luck, you may want to find out if you have a dark entity around you. What I usually find is that if you have been hit by one bad thing after another in your life, you likely have something negative with you. Fifteen years ago, I wouldn’t have believed that, but I’ve seen enough at this point to know it is happening. Some people are plagued by evil. 

A lot of paranormal victims move to get away from their supernatural tormentors, but the creatures follow them. It’s not that easy once one of these things find you. Imagine having something unseen going after you in your home. Then you move to escape it. To your utter amazement, it starts up again as soon as you move into your new home. What a nightmare! Whatever you are dealing with, most tag along when you go. ET abductions don’t stop with a move. Demonic will follow you. These entities can find you anywhere.

Not all is doom and gloom. Luckier people only experience the positive aspects of spirit, Bigfoot, fairy or ET contact. They don’t get sick. They don’t get attacked. The entities are benevolent and even bring peace to a home or land. Usually those with these types of contacts don’t find their way here. It isn’t causing a problem for them and may even enrich their lives. They don’t need help but only may search for validation. It is reassuring to realize that what you are seeing is real!

However most people who make their way onto this site are having issues. Perhaps the worst are those who are taken against their will by extraterrestrials. The abductions can continue for an entire lifetime. Sickness typically follows as well as massive stress and inability to sleep. If you have this type of thing going on, it is best to get help. It doesn’t stop on its own.  ET contact can ruin your life if you are not careful.

There are so many types of paranormal contact. It would make your head spin if you delve into all this. Whatever reason you are on this site, the likelihood is that you have come across something that made you pause and ask what is happening. 

If you live with this kind of thing, it can take over your entire world. It can disrupt work and your relationships. Such strain can even ruin marriages . Divorces often follow demonic hauntings or alien abductions. Worse yet, people have had custody of their children threatened if they dare talk about what is going on behind closed doors. It’s a lose/lose situation. 

What then happens is that people become prisoners of these entities. Captive in their own homes. Worse yet, if you study these cases you will find that most people live through more than one event. Witnesses won’t just see a ghost once. Sightings will be followed by poltergeist activity. Marks may appear on the body because entities can touch you. You’ll have weird dreams. It’s the same for alien cases too. It won’t simply be one event. You may not remember more than one event, but ET’s don’t simply appear once. There will be more. The contact will permeate everything. Flashbacks. Increased psychic awareness. Post traumatic stress. Illness, often autoimmune, will appear.

So how can you deal with all this? 

It’s easy if you have something benevolent. You can simply acknowledge what is happening and sometimes even communicate with whoever or whatever is in your home. For you, the kind contact is a gift which shows you there is more than this life. It is a window into another dimension. Nice entities enrich your environment. If you re one of these lucky people, you should tell your stories because it can help others see that we are not alone. This could benefit countless numbers of suffering people. With the COVID lockdowns, huge numbers are suffering from depression. Knowing there is more than this life could mean the world to them.

On the other hand if you are having negative experiences, it is best to reach out for help. As I said before, these things do not stop on their own. In fact, it only gets worse with time. Though some people can simply move and have the activity cease, the majority of cases do not. It WILL come back later. Don’t be fooled by a long lull in activity. Once these things get their claws into you, they don’t want to let go. It may even be years before they make themselves known again.

Evil never gives up.

With the stress, fear, and confusion, it is essential that you talk to someone who can try to help. Demonic hauntings can be fought, but you will always have to watch your back. With the right intervention, it can be resolved.

Extraterrestrial abduction on the other hand is much more difficult. These energies have abilities and technology we don’t. They are ten steps ahead of us. But don’t make the mistake of holding it all in. Just talking to understanding people can help your stress level. Hypnotic regressions can be soothing and reveal information that can be of great use in dealing with otherworldly contact. The more you know, the more you can fight.  

I should mention there is a group of individuals who are taken by ET’s who say their experiences are good. They mysteriously get cured of horrible illnesses, and their lives improve. They are gifted with telepathic and healing abilities, as well as hard science skills (math, physics).  While most of these people understand that others don’t have similar experiences, unfortunately there are some who will not acknowledge that bad contact happens. In short, because they only experienced good things, then all contact must be good in their eyes. Of course they are completely wrong, but don’t waste your time arguing with them. If you have been hurt by these things, you have been hurt. Period. Yet there is something you can do if you have been living this nightmare. You can work to take control back.

The main thing is: don’t suffer in silence. If you are struggling with the paranormal, there are groups, professional investigators, psychologists and others who can assist. Though asking for help may not bring immediate relief, those you reach out to may have resources and know others who can make a difference for you. Never give up. 

Breakthroughs happen. In some cases, just talking about what you have gone through can soften your outlook. Seeing you are not alone can really help. So don’t feel hopeless if you are going through one of these frightful events. It can get better. 

Read through my articles below. I talk about patterns and similarities among those who have paranormal experiences. When you realize others have dealt with the same stuff, it can make things easier for you. I sometimes write in a humorous manner. I do that to help those who are afraid, to make it easier for those who are scared. So take a look at the information in my other articles. It may just help open a door for you so you can make your life better.

Do you feel head pressure when paranormal activity happens?

Do you feel a lot of intense head pressure whenever there is paranormal activity around you? Whether you have seen a UFO, an alien, a ghost, a demon, bigfoot, or any of the supernatural characters, it is common for people to feel like their heads are in a vice. Witnesses have described it as feeling like they are underwater and ears are plugged. It can be like being on an airplane when your ears won’t pop. Many individuals will report hearing a ringing or even a clicking/snapping sound in the ear right before something happens.

The head pressure gets worse the closer you get to paranormal occurrences. It builds and builds. The pressure seems to be worst right before a ghost manifests, an alien appears, a UFO emerges, Bigfoot comes forth, or poltergeist activity plays out.

The question is why? What is happening?

One explanation is that there is a change in atmosphere at the time the supernatural materializes. Perhaps these phenomena make the barometric pressure change when they appear. In other words, they have to make the atmospheric pressure transform in order to show themselves.

Another explanation is that the witness is actually producing or helping the phenomena using some mechanism of the brain or neurological system. This would mean somehow the brain of the experiencer is taking part in the paranormal display. It has been suggested by people such as Dr. Barry Taff that many who experience paranormal activity are epileptics in some way, shape, or form. That is, these people are either full blown epileptics or they have micro-seizures which even they may be unaware of. This coupled with environmental factors can create ghosts or help them come forth. The jury is still out on which it is.

Furthermore, high electromagnetic frequencies affect the human brain. There is a possibility that when people experience the paranormal, they are being subjected to high EMF levels. These high levels can make a person feel like their head is going to explode. The EMF can also produce hallucinations. At the same time, if the head pressure is not common and only arises when paranormal activity happens, it tends to lessen the possibility that an external environmental factor such as high EMF levels are causing the issue. Basically, if you only get the head pressure in your house when the ghost or alien appears, it is more likely something like EMF is coming from the entity. Ghost=EMF instead of EMF+Brain=Ghost.

That doesn’t mean that a high EMF level doesn’t occur when the supernatural manifests. It just may mean that the paranormal is causing the high EMF level and not the other way around. In such a case, the paranormal would be the source of the bad head pressure that you get.

For those who have had this intense head pressure, you know what I am talking about. I have experienced it and many other researchers have as well. It is not something you can ignore. It is uncomfortable and at times painful. What we can say is that the paranormal and the human brain work hand in hand in some way. Supernatural happenings affect our bodies. Some people who live in haunted places will get very sick. Researchers have become very ill from being around UFO’s, poltergeists, ghosts etc. So this is not to be taken lightly. If you are a researcher, you need to be aware of this. Say a family contacts you with a suspected haunting or alien contact situation, you need to know that there can be very real health issues associated with it.

For the moment I don’t have any answers for you as to what we can do to prevent the head pressure thing. With time I am sure we will find out more and be better able to protect ourselves. Just know that you are not alone if you have experienced this.

Paranormal Activity and Cancer

Copyright Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

Now this the real scary part of the paranormal. If you are drawn to ghosts, poltergeists, aliens, Bigfoot and other supernatural spooks, then you need to listen up because there is a real danger in hunting these things. Honestly you put yourself in all kinds of jeopardy when you seek out these fascinating entities. You are in more peril than you may know. One of the worst threats that you may face but not know about is radiation exposure.

There are several risks involved when you entangle yourself in paranormal phenomena. These include physical manifestations such as scratches, burns, and other injures caused by supernatural entities. And yes, such things do happen. No really, they do occur. People get hurt from these energies. For those out there who think this is all fun and games and that paranormal harm is not real, you simply do not know what you are talking about.

Environmental factors at haunted locations present real problems. These dangers consist of things like asbestos, toxic mold, gases, and other environmental hazards that you might not even think about when embarking on your ghost hunts. Old buildings can have a lot of poisonous materials in them. When you think about heading out to some notoriously haunted place, you likely wouldn’t even think of such risks. However, they are there, and ghost hunters have become very ill from being in these environments. They develop lung, heart, and other health problems after spending time in these places. So be aware of this if you are heading to a location and protect yourself.

People who live in haunted homes should also be alerted to the fact that they are likely being exposed to some type of environmental problem. Whether they have high levels of electromagnetic fields around them which can affect their bodies, or if there is toxic mold, CO2 gases, there is danger. If you live in a ‘haunted’ place, you should get your property checked for these things. People who live in homes that have lots of strange happenings often suffer multiple illnesses. It would wise in that situation to get the environment checked to make sure there is not an environmental factor that is making you sick.

But a hidden danger that most people do think about is radiation. Yes, you read that right. People who are in settings that have a great deal of paranormal activity often have high levels of radiation around them, either from the ghostly or alien appearances or simply from the home in general.

Geiger counters show spikes of radiation when paranormal manifestations are present. Background radiation does not go that high, so it would not explain the rapid increases when supernatural entities appear. Radiation is either present or being created from the beings, the environment, or the people present. At the current time, we don’t know which is causing the phenomena.

This is a real danger and I warn those who do this regularly to take precautions when dealing with alien ‘contact’ or ghostly/poltergeist manifestations. Well known paranormal researchers have been either diagnosed with cancer or asked where they were subjected to high levels of radiation. Doctors actually have asked ghost hunters if they have jobs that put them into situations where they are exposed to radiation. And no, other than paranormal work, they do not.

There is more to this field than people realize. Many think it is made up or fake, but it is all too real. People get hurt and sick. Sadly, the medical field has continually let these people down. Too often, those exposed to the environmental hazards have been blown off by doctors who didn’t listen and frankly didn’t care. As a result, these people got sicker and sicker when they could have been helped.

My advice to you is that if you are in these haunted locations and suffer from symptoms, get checked out. And if the doctor blows you off (and they likely will), go to another doctor and another until you find someone who will listen to you. This will be difficult because the medical field in the US has mostly become a money game where doctors only see patients as dollar signs. If you don’t have an easy to diagnose illness, they will kick you out of their offices and act like you are crazy.  It is so sad that these victims have to be re-victimized by the medical field when they could have been helped. You wouldn’t believe the stories of how doctors have treated these patients. It would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. These individuals who live in haunted homes and become sick are not believed by anyone, and this takes a heavy toll on their psyches.

If you are involved in this field and have been to or go to ghostly locations, be very careful and protect yourself as much as you can. This field really is in its infancy, so we don’t know the long-term risks associated with it. As it becomes more acceptable to study, more scientists will become involved and our knowledge of these things will skyrocket. For the ghost hunters, alien hunters, and Bigfoot hunters out there, you are truly honest to goodness pioneers who deserve a pat on the back. I think this field will eventually teach us a lot about our planet, new power sources, abilities of our own minds, and health in general. Stay tuned as we learn more.

When ghosts are nothing more than your own trauma

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

Many people believe their homes are haunted. In fact, they are downright convinced of it. Yet in a lot of cases, the ‘ghost’ is nothing more than a mixture of family trauma and negative life situations. What I mean by that is a large number of cases where homeowners believed they were haunted were actually not haunted at all. Well, they may have been haunted by a horrible life tragedy, but there was nothing paranormal going on.

You have to be careful if you think that you are being haunted. Because if you come to believe that there is a specter watching your every move, then you can become anxious, paranoid, and even frightened. I’ve worked with people who thought that they had ghosts in their homes. In reality, there was no ghost or demon. The things that they mistook for supernatural happenings were actually just everyday occurrences that were misinterpreted.

Life is hard. For some people, it is excruciating. Whether they go through a chronic painful illness which doctors seem unable to help, or they suffer from tragedy after tragedy, the trauma can be too much to handle. When this happens, the human mind searches for an explanation. Sometimes that leads them to the paranormal.

For example, Minnie was left by her cheating husband with four young children. Naturally the cheater skipped out of town and on alimony too. Minnie was overwhelmed. Then life hit her with a brick. She came down with all kinds of weird symptoms. Her eyes would go in and out of focus. She’d feel numb in her legs and arms. Sometimes, she had trouble walking. To the doctors she went, and the doctors failed her. They saw her as a middle aged woman who was malingering. In truth, she was suffering from early Multiple Sclerosis. It took several years before she found one competent doctor who was able to diagnose her.

In the meantime, Minnie had convinced herself that a bad spirit was haunting her home. The walls seemed to bang out of nowhere. Her wallet was never in the last place she left it. There was a cold spot in the dining room. Then there were those horrible dreams where something was chasing her. Because she was so stressed, every time one of these things would happen, she told her young children that an evil spirit was after them. It follows that the kids then began noticing every noise and bump, and they too, became convinced that a dark entity was stalking them.

When dinner was left in the stove too long, it was obviously the ghost. When Minnie tripped over the bathroom carpet, clearly it was the ghost. When the kids had nightmares, to them, it was a demon out to get them. Whatever goes wrong in the course of a normal day was attributed to the paranormal. And it made this family wild with fear.

They all ended up sleeping in the same room, taking turns trying to get rest so the ghost wouldn’t get them. The kids would go to school exhausted because, well, the demon had kept them up. At least in their mind it had. Their school work began to suffer, and Minnie simply collapsed. As sick as she was, she couldn’t go on and was absolutely convinced that the evil spirit had caused her divorce, her illness, and kids’ problems. Minnie’s behavior got bizarre as a result. She went so far as to run out of the bathroom with the trash when she was having her menstrual cycle. The reason? She felt if any blood was left in the house that it somehow ‘fed’ the demon. Minnie ended up having a priest come bless her home, she was so scared.

After this went on for almost a year, Minnie’s mother ended up taking the children and Minnie in. At first, every time they heard a snapping noise or bump, they would all jump with fear until Minnie’s mother reassured them that it was just the wind outside, the ice tray, or the refrigerator. It took several months of Minnie’s mother making great efforts to explain things and clam them down before they began to understand that they had not been haunted at all.

Still terrified of the whole thing, Minnie wanted her home (which had sat vacant for three months) to be tested by paranormal investigators. She wouldn’t believe her mom, but she would believe them. Investigators took a look at Minnie’s house and did several overnight stays. It didn’t take long to figure out that the bumps and bangs that the family had heard were the results of the pipes and the heating ducts moving and banging. The cold spot in the dining room? The window had been left open a tiny bit by accident. So chilly air was coming in at that spot. Minnie kept tripping on the bathroom carpet because one of the tiles underneath it had come loose. Where the tile was loose was the exact spot Minnie kept tripping on. And the nightmares were just that: nightmares. No more. No less.

Poor Minnie and her children had been so scared that they let fear override their common sense. If Minnie had investigated instead of jumping to conclusions, she and her children would not have lost a year to an unfounded terror. However, she had been horribly scarred from her divorce and disabling illness. It was too much.

After the investigation showed her that there was nothing in her home, she and the kids moved back in. With the window closed and tile fixed, there were no more cold spots or tripping accidents. The paranormal investigators had told her to have a plumber secure the pipes, which she did. Then the noises were no longer heard. Problems solved. Her son admitted to being the one who had been moving her wallet when he was sneaking dollars here and there. It was just one big mess.

Now don’t make the mistake of thinking that it is just females who have this issue. Unfortunately, there have been some scientists in the paranormal field who have painted women who have supernatural experiences as nutcases, and these scientists have done a great disservice to the field by using a broad brush. To these scientists, women who have paranormal experiences, especially poltergeist experiences, are hysterical personalities and attention seeking. While this may be true of some people (male and female) who are encountering paranormal happenings, it is certainly not true of all. This ghastly mischaracterization sets the field back. I’ve known women who have experienced actual poltergeist activity, witnessed by others, and these women are solid emotionally.

Both men and women can mistakenly come to believe that there is a ghost in their homes when nothing is there. I know of a man who became convinced that he had a demon in his house. Despite many different investigative groups over a period of years showing him that his demon consisted of his air compressor blowing, faulty wiring of his dishwasher, and raccoon families in his attic, he still walked away from the house and let it go into foreclosure. He had convinced himself that an evil spirit was after him, so to him, an evil spirit was after him.

The point is that you should never jump to the conclusion that your house is haunted. There are so many other things that it could be. Be especially careful when you suffer from illnesses or tragedies, because those things can impair your judgment. After all, if you have gone through horror after horror, it is easy to turn to the paranormal when looking for answers. People can mistakenly think that if doctors can’t help them or if several family and loved ones die in the same year, then maybe there is a dark entity making it happen. They look to the supernatural for answers because this world cannot provide them with the answers. Some illnesses are yet to be discovered. Doesn’t mean someone isn’t dealing with it right now. Doctors just don’t know what it is. And in some years, several people you love can just die. It is rare, but it does happen. Bad luck perhaps, but not bad spirit.

If you think you have a ghost in your house, then get it checked out. Have good investigators who will look at your heating/air system, pipes, windows, and other things to rule out something mundane. Whatever you do, don’t get scared when you don’t need to be. Life is too short.

The paperbacks came in today!

Warning: Disturbing accounts of serial killers and demons. What if the world’s worst predators worked together? Could evil spirits and human monsters act as one? Paranormal researcher and retired criminal profiler Dr. Deborah Kauflin looks into the frightening link between bad spirits and serial killers. Whether you love the paranormal or study serial murder, this book delves into the lives of serial murderers and their experiences with otherworldly entities.

After interviewing 25 multiple murderers for criminal profiling research, Dr. Kauflin found a disturbing link between these killers and dark paranormal activity. Based on the interviews with both killers and witnesses, she pieced together an eerie puzzle which shows that evil spirits really do interact with serial killers. Just who or what is stalking victims with these murderers?

Dr. Kauflin worked on hundreds of serial murder & sexual homicide cases for police departments. She taught thousands of homicide detectives, FBI agents, US Military, and created the profiles of female serial killers, sadistic murderers, and terrorists. Back in November 2008, Dr. Kauflin predicted that India would be the next big terror attack in her book Disturbed. Two weeks later, terrorists hit Mumbai and took 166 lives. Her most famous profile was of the BTK serial murderer, and she is known for being the first person to interview a group of female serial killers for groundbreaking criminal profiling research. Dr. Kauflin has appeared as a criminal profiling expert on ABC, CNN, FoxNews, The Discovery Channel, Investigation Discovery, and the Seoul Broadcasting System. She wrote for Psychology Today Magazine online, did volunteer work for the National Organization of Parents of Murdered Children, and has authored four other books.

“I’m not going to tell you what is hanging out with some serial murderers. You can call them thought projections, Djinn, demons, bad ghosts, parasites, aliens or other entities. However, there is something paranormal going on with certain serial killers.” Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

Are Ghosts Interacting with your Pets?

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

We all love our pets. They are our little furry ‘children.’ When you have a bad day, they always come to you to put a smile on your face. Often when you are sick, they won’t leave your side. Somehow they know what you need.

The fact is that animals are naturally quite psychic. They can pick up on your moods, and they watch you to see what you need. These little psychics are attuned to the unseen world around us, and if you have a spirit in your home, your pet will probably be the first one to notice. They can see things that we can’t, and they will react accordingly.

You’ll notice that your cat will watch the air and move its eyes as if tracking something moving around the room. Then there are dogs who bark at an empty corner of the room. Well, at least to you it looks empty, but really, something is there! If your home is haunted, then you know how your pets react when something manifests. Even rabbits will thump their back feet when an entity is near.

There are good spirits and negative ones. If your home is inhabited by the kind ones, then your dog may still bark at them. Your pet is simply alerting you to the fact that someone strange is in your home. I’ve known people who have witnessed a spirit petting their cats and dogs. These people have seen the fur being matted as the animal is getting stroked. Friendly ghosts love animals and still like to pet them from the other side.

In some cases, you will see your pet looking up at the air, listening to an entity. Their heads will cock to the side, and then they will take off as if doing so on command. I know one lady whose dog did just this and went to get his bone. Then he dropped the bone at the foot of something invisible. The dog wagged his tail and kept looking at the air waiting for another command!

In another case, a cat followed the unseen entity up the stairs. The cat would pause at certain points as if stopping when the ghost stopped. The home owner followed the cat because it was clear the feline was looking up as if listening to someone. When the cat went into the bedroom, the door closed all by itself behind the cat! There were no windows open. The air was not running. This had never happened before. The owner said when she went to open the door, her cat was laying on its back on the bed with its paw batting at the air, like someone had a cat toy and was playing with it. But no one was there, at least no one she could see. These are the fun interactions. It shows you that what you are dealing with is peaceful and pleasant.

However, that is not always the case. There are negative spirits who attack animals, but those situations are rare. I wrote another article about that, and you can scroll down my blog to look at it. Basically, if you have a bad spirit, then your animals will show signs of stress and become sick. These things do happen, and there is no rational explanation for why it occurs. It is frightening and sad, but those types of cases are not nearly as common as good spirit contact. I just wanted you to know that there are all kinds of entities around us. If you come across a negative one, you do have to deal with it, but most often, the spirit hanging out in your home means you no harm.

If you live in a haunted place, it is likely that your pet tipped you off that someone or something was in your home. They will watch spirits and even follow them. Sometimes they even play with the ghosts. When you watch them, you see that they are having fun. On the other hand, if it upsets your pet, then you have a better idea that something is not quite right.

I should note that pets don’t have to have fur to be psychic. I’ve even seen cases where lizards would act strangely when paranormal activity was occurring. Strange but true. The point is that animals do see entities on the other side. They can be your window into the unseen world and give you a glimpse into the unknown. Pay attention when your little animal friend starts interacting with something that you cannot see. There very well may be a spirit close by.
