Joining the show today is paranormal investigator, Allen Cornelison. His extensive research into the paranormal lead him to the journey of al lifetime. He shares his amazing true life encounters with ghosts who he knows and some he wants to forget. Allen finds himself too deep in the case of a lifetime. Allen's arrogance in understanding all that need to be known about supernatural activity challenges his 30 plus years of experience while investigating the Stagecoach Inn. Allenhas blindedhimself to reality, lacking a true understanding of what he thought he knew about The Dark World of paranormal phenomenon. Allen's seven year journey investigating the Stagecoach Inn can onlybe decribedas a slow-moving, methodical, evil dark river of expected and ever changing currents and undertows in it's black unforgiving abyss.As Allen sometimes refers to the inn, that place, is methodically anddiabolicall designed by whatever darkness lurks within this old historicallandmark's wall in Ida County, Iowa. Allen's investigation of this historical landmark is leaves him unaware of his spiritual and mental drowning in a dark river that he has ventured Inn Too Deep with little hope of swimming out.

I found that I could feel the energy of an investigation without setting foot into the location. Upon reading Inn Conflict, I felt I was walking with Allen as he traversed the Stage Coach Inn, a building embedded in his soul forever. I have 37 years of experience in the paranormal, doing investigations and professionally reading as a medium. It is a gift I have had since I can remember. My education is a Ph.D. in Health Sciences after I diverged from clinical psych and decided to teach rather than diagnose psychiatric patients. My lifetime has been spent in these situations; the excitement leads to the investigations, the heart-racing adrenaline of standing somewhere in the dark, not alone, and the realization that something has attached and followed you home. It is a life of dedication to finding out the who, what, where, and when of unknown energies, and Allen encompasses all these feelings in Inn Conflict...

This espisode we are joined the the lovely and talented author, paranormal investigator, founder of Tri-County Ghost Hunters Society Nicole Beauchamp. Growing up in Bay City, Michigan Nicole's formitive years were spent with a grand fondness for the paranormal. From an Early age, she began to dabble in scary and spooky endevors. As she grew up she started her own tour and investigation group. 

With years of experience under her belt, she used her talents to begin writing her now famous book, Haunted Bay City, Michigan which later lead to her releases of Haunted Detroit. And soon coming another haunted book, Haunted Bars and Inns of Michigan.

Detroit, the largest city in the state of Michigan, was settled in 1701 by French colonists. It is the first European settlement above tidewater in North America. Founded as a New France fur trading post, it began to expand during the 19th century with American settlements around the Great Lakes. By 1920, based on the booming auto industry and immigration, it became a world-class industrial powerhouse and the fourth-largest city in the United States. It held that standing through the mid-20th century.

The first Europeans to settle in Detroit were French country traders and colonists from the New Orleans (the La Louisiane) colony. They were joined by traders from Montreal and Quebec; all had to contend with the powerful Five Nations of the League of the Iroquois (Haudenosaunee), who took control of the southern shores of Lakes Erie and Huron through the Beaver Wars of the 17th century. Also present and powerful, but further to the north, were the Council of Three Fires (Anishinaabe). (in Anishinaabe: Niswi-mishkodewinan, also known as the People of the Three Fires; the Three Fires Confederacy; or the United Nations of Chippewa, Ottawa, and Potawatomi Indians) is a long-standing Anishinaabe alliance of the Ojibwe (or Chippewa), Odawa (or Ottawa), and Potawatomi North American Native tribes. The Three Fires Confederacy (Anishinaabe) was often supported by the French, while the so-called League of Iroquois, or Five Nations (Haudenosaunee) was supported by the English and Dutch.

Listen in as we talk to Nicole about her ventures into the paranormal.

Cryptozoologist Shetan Noir, author and owner/publisher of Squatch GQ Magazine stops by to give us some new updates on the lore and legends of The Great Lakes monsters. She researches strange and unusal reports and sightings in and around the Great Lakes Regions in North America, document many of these in her books.

The Water Monster of Lake Erie

Lake Erie is home to many different monster tales, all of which have been told by multiple people. One of the most famous water monster sightings has happened in Lake Erie in the south bay area. Bessie, who is also called South Bay Bessie because of the location of the sightings, has been seen multiple times since the 1800’s. It is said that she is covered in gray scales, has a large head, and is around 30 to 40 feet long. Once, in 1992, a supposed attack from Bessie left three people dead with one survivor. He had quite the story to tell, I’m sure. He has even mentioned that Bessie’s head was the size of an average car. Could you imagine seeing that up close and personal?

The Kingstie Monster of Lake Ontario

Lake Ontario spans between the United States and Canada, and this particular tale happened in Canada in 2004, though it dates back to the 1930’s. The Kingstie Monster was seen by two fishermen who were enjoying their day just off the coast of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. What they saw was a hoax created by some people in 1934 by using empty bottles for a flotation device and attaching a head that resembled a dragon. Why they did, it is hard to say, but the fishermen were given quite a scare and decided to name it “Kingstie” after their location. This story is a bit more relaxed than some of the others, but even the hoax put quite a scare into many people’s lives, especially if they aren’t expecting to see a “sea monster” under their boat while fishing.

The Siren of Lake Erie

Lake Erie, as I’ve mentioned before, is home to several monster stories. This one is particularly chilling since it revolved around a demonic siren. This legend centers around a siren called the Storm Hag. She lives at the bottom of Lake Erie, and she is often blamed for the disappearance of many ships in the area. She is said to have yellow eyes, green teeth and skin, and long, sharp, and poisonous fingernails. Her teeth are also extremely sharp, and her eyes are said to have a demonic glow to them. Her voice is said to carry over the lake just before a storm comes, and when the storm arrives, she attacks the ship, kills the sailors, and brings this ship back to her home in the bottom of the lake. This is one of the most mysterious stories surrounding the Great Lakes. It’s pretty creepy, right? 

 

THE GREAT LYNX WATER MONSTER OF LAKE HURON
The Ojibway legends say there is a giant reptile, or serpent creature with large horns that rules the waters of Lake Huron. They call it "Mishebeshu" which means 'great lynx' and it dwells in an underwater den at the mouth of the Serpent River. There are many tales of this creature and if you visit the area, you wouldn't have any problem finding some old-timers to tell you about their - and others - experiences with this creature

5 Powerful Signs You’re A White Witch

1. You transmute emotions and experiences into massive energy that creates change.

Your energy is so uncontainable, it’s a bit dangerous. Both your positive and negative emotions have the ability to affect others around you, creating massive social change as well as individual change. You can channel your experiences in such a way that it serves you and those of others, transforming traumas into miracles and fears into alchemy. You can move people to tears, uplift someone’s spirits and provide healing encouragement as much as you can strike down a malicious person with the destructive force of your anger which is akin to thunder.

2. Your connection to nature is unparalleled.

You are literally “one” with nature, its elements, the earth and its seasons. In fall and winter, you shed old beliefs, toxic relationships, and destructive patterns. In spring, you come alive again and feel the rebirth of your psyche.

3. Your magic, intentions and rituals always have some sort of powerful effect.

You’re capable of massive manifestation. What you desire, so long as it serves your greater purpose, usually always comes to fruition. Whether you engage in prayer, spellwork, meditation – whatever form your unique form of magic takes – you have the power to create new opportunities for yourself wherever you go.

4. Your ability to manifest and your natural confidence is astounding. As a result, you might be intimidating to others.

Even if you’re the sweetest little white witch around, you will make people nervous because you threaten every limiting belief about human power. And because you’re so grounded in your ability to change yourself, your life and the world, you challenge everyone around you to see their own divinity (something not everyone is willing to do).

5. You are a healer and your words hold massive power – so use them wisely.

As the great (albeit fictional) Albus Dumbledore once noted, “Words are an inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” And indeed, your words could create new worlds if you willed them to. Be careful as a white witch what you say, because your words are a powerful outlet and source of creation, even if you don’t recognize it.

Second week in Hell With Nadine..for the start of Season 8!

Thanks to Black Swamp Paranormal's Nadine for sharing more creepy and spooky tales from their ghost outings! 

Michigan Dogman

In folklore, the Michigan Dogman was allegedly witnessed in 1887 in Wexford County, Michigan, United States. The creature is described as a seven-foot tall, blue-eyed, or amber-eyed bipedal canine-like animal with the torso of a man and a fearsome howl that sounds like a human scream. According to legends, the Michigan Dogman appears in a ten-year cycle that falls on years ending in 7. Sightings have been reported in several locations throughout Michigan, primarily in the northwestern quadrant of the Lower Peninsula. In 1987, the legend of the Michigan Dogman gained popularity when disc jockey Steve Cook at WTCM-FM recorded a song about the creature and its reported sightings.

History

This creature was unknown to most of the modern world until very late in the twentieth century. It is said to have been stalking the area around the Manistee River since the days when the Odawa tribes lived there. Authentic sources for sightings made prior to 1987, however, have never been documented beyond Steve Cook's song, discussed below.

The first alleged encounter of the Michigan Dogman occurred in 1887 in Wexford County, when two lumberjacks saw a creature that they described as having a man's body and a dog's head.

In 1937 in Paris, Michigan, Robert Fortney was attacked by five wild dogs and said that one of the five walked on two legs. Reports of similar creatures also came from Allegan County in the 1950s, and in Manistee and Cross Village in 1967.

Linda S. Godfrey, in her book The Beast of Bray Road, compares the Manistee sightings to a similar creature sighted in Wisconsin known as the Beast of Bray Road.

Hell, Michigan

Hell is an unincorporated community in Livingston County in the U.S. state of Michigan. As an unincorporated community, Hell has no defined boundaries or population statistics of its own. Located within Putnam Township, the community is centered along Patterson Lake Road about 15 miles (24 km) northwest of Ann Arbor and three miles (4.8 km) southwest of Pinckney. The community is served by the Pinckney post office with the 48169 ZIP Code.

History

Hell developed around a sawmill, gristmill, distillery and tavern. All four were operated by George Reeves, who moved to the area in the 1830s from the Catskill Mountains in New York. He purchased a sawmill on what is now known as Hell Creek in 1841. In addition to the sawmill, Reeves purchased 1,000 acres (400 ha) of land surrounding the mill. Reeves then built a gristmill on Hell Creek which was powered by water that was impounded by a small dam across the creek. Farmers in the area were quite successful in growing wheat and had an abundance of grain. Reeves opened a distillery to process the excess grain into whiskey. Reeves also opened a general store/tavern on his property.

The tavern and distillery soon became a thriving business for Reeves. He built a ballroom on the second floor of the establishment and a sulky racetrack around his millpond. Reeves also sold his alcohol to nearby roadhouses and stores for as little as ten cents a gallon. His operation came under the scrutiny of the U.S. government in the years after the American Civil War. When tax collectors came to Hell to assess his operation, Reeves and his customers conspired to hide the whiskey by filling barrels and sinking them to the bottom of the millpond. When the government agents left the area, the barrels were hauled to the surface with ropes. As Reeves aged, he slowed his business ventures, closing the distillery and witnessing the burning of the gristmill. He died in 1877.

Reeves' family sold the land to a group of investors from Detroit in 1924. The investors increased the size of the millpond by raising the level of the dam, creating what is now Hiland Lake. The area soon became a summer resort area, attracting visitors for swimming and fishing. Henry Ford considered building some manufacturing facilities in the area but decided against it.
