Working in Salem and doing the haunted history tours has given her a lot of experience as well. And a fun fact: Courtney collects ethically sourced human remains!

Sep 3, 2023

We return to Ste. Sault Marie to the Michigan Paracon 2023 and meet up with The Ghost Contact Paranormal Team. With great tales of their paranormal adventures, we are entertained by ghost stories.  

Sault Ste. Marie is the oldest city in Michigan, and among the oldest cities in the United States. Over the course of our history, the flags of several sovereign nations have flown over the Sault.

Over 2,000 years ago, Native Americans began to gather here for the wealth of fish and fur found along the rushing waters of the wide, turbulent river that linked the Great Lakes of Superior and Huron. Spring and Fall were important seasons for these original settlers, and they called the area “Bahweting,” or, “The Gathering Place.”

The area’s first full-time residents lived in lodges framed of wood poles, sheathed with bark or animal hides. The river below the rapids provided an abundance of fish for Native peoples, as well as several tribes from throughout the region, who migrated here during the peak fishing season. It continues to remain a world-class spot for sport fishing.

In the 1600’s, French missionaries and fur traders began to venture into this beautiful territory. The traders began calling the wild area Sault du Gastogne. In 1668, the legendary Jesuit missionary and explorer Fr. Jacques Marquette renamed this burgeoning European settlement Sault Ste. Marie, in honor of the Virgin Mary—the first “city” in the Great Lakes region.

Nestled in the downtown of Fort Wayne Indiana sits a quiet and reserved home, but this isn't any average placec this is a mansion...it is the The Bell Mansion. And yes the ghosts are real!

Join us as we talk with Lindsay and Ricky, two of the mansion's docents who have both worked and experienced some of the most frightening paranormal experiences. From ghostly children running in the upstairs bedrooms, to the devoted maid Maria who is still tending to the rooms she once cleaned and did we mention the hundreds of thousands of dead bodies that went through the doors? This beautiful example of architecure and marvel was a funeral home for nearly 90+ years! So to say there spirits is an understatement.

Same architect as the University of Saint Francis' Bass Mansion and The History Center both in Fort Wayne.  Robert served as a state senator, assistant U.S. Commissioner for Indiana, huge investor in natural gas, (the reason Fort Wayne & even Chicago got natural gas when they did) and was a prominent lawyer. Clara helped form the first classes at the Fort Wayne Art School and was the co-founder of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.  The couple was originally from the Muncie area but moved up here for business purposes. They were a very prominent couple during their years here in Fort Wayne. Not only did Clara leave her forever footsteps at the Art Museum his law firm is still going strong known as the Barrett-McNagny law firm serving the local area still today. They only had one child Bessie but unfortunately due to illness died at 11 months old. After Robert's death in 1901 the home was sold to William K. Noble who ran a lumber company that operated in 3 states. His family of 3 lived there for 22 years and sold the building for $50,000 to The Klaehn Funeral home. In 1935 the west side addition was added due to high demand. At this time funerals were no longer held in the residents home as they were done in the 1800s. Today there are over 14,000 square feet in this absolutely breathtaking mansion. No detail has gone unnoticed. It remained a funeral home for over 93 years. Until they left the building in 2018 and the Sturm's bought the building in 2020 to preserve its beauty. We want to preserve our precious history first and foremost. History is the reason why we are all here today!  We are SOOO PASSIONATE about preserving and sharing this place with the world! Everyday we are getting creative so we can keep this mansion in one piece (not 8 different apartments or even a parking lot). We hope you love this building half as much as we do! Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns! We are very open minded and easy going people looking to preserve a giant piece of Fort Wayne's history!

 Do you love spooky stories? Do you love haunted places? Then we have the show for you! As we begin our yearly trek to Upper Michigan we bring you some scary and entertaining legends and lore of haunted areas and places in and around upper Michigan. Strange ghost sightings, haunted cemetaries, inhabited buildings and even our own personal ghost encounters!

 Haunted Locations in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan

Soo Brewing Company/Second Childhood & Adult Too– Under prior ownership as Superior Impressions, the team conducted several investigations on the premises.

The building is believed to be haunted by a former ship captain whose family originally had the structure built, and ran their retail operations after leaving the lakes. Activity includes disembodied footsteps from the upper floor and formerly, and a Christmas caroler doll which would be moved to different locations in the store after the building had been locked for the night.

The Antlers Restaurant– Formerly operated as a speakeasy and brothel, the building is believed to be haunted by both a lady of the night & possibly a waitress. Doors have been known to open on their own and office equipment to turn on and off by itself. On one investigation, a team member was pushed on a stairway in the kitchen by an unseen force.

Museum Ship Valley Camp– Although no known tragedy is associated with the ship itself, it does house artifacts from shipwrecks that resulted in the loss of life. On one occasion, a heavy coughing sound was heard in the old coal furnace area. When asked what the sound was, a voice was captured on a recording device stating “I am coughing”. Shadowy figures have also been reported on the ship’s deck at night.

Ramada Ojibway Plaza– Believed to be haunted by Beatrice, the wife of a former owner. Rooms occupying what had consisted of her former suite have purportedly had patrons find their suitcases unpacked and rooms made up, although housekeeping service had not entered. There are also reports of a tall man in dress clothes and top hat being spotted wandering through the lobby area.

The Satisfied Frog Pub– Reported activity includes nickels turning up on a formerly vacant bar and the spirit of a little girl who has been both seen and heard at the rear of the establishment. In a picture taken several years back, a gnarled, disembodied hand is seen gripping the shoulder of a young lady. No explanation has ever been reached as to where the “hand” came from.

 

Thanks for tuning in this week, remember we love our listeners! HAve a wonderful week and stay spooky!!

The Ghost Bride of Ravine Cemetery

Ravine Cemetery is located just outside of downtown Sylvania, Ohio and it is here, in this quiet neighborhood cemetery, that stories of a phantom bride have captivated the imaginations of many for over 50 years.

The story of the ghost bride entered northwest Ohio folklore in the 1970s when a cemetery caretaker shared his knowledge of the legend with a friend, who, in turn, shared it with a Toledo Blade newspaper reporter.

The legend involves the spirit of a woman who returns to the cemetery to visit the graves of her former husbands, three of them. It is said she will appear at dawn on the anniversary of either their death or their marriage, no one is sure which.

There are many, including me, who suspect this legend is based on an actual person but, so far, the identity of the ghost bride remains a mystery. 

City Tavern (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

A bride and her bridesmaids were preparing for the wedding when one bridesmaid accidentally knocked over a candle, setting the curtains on fire. The fire spread throughout the tavern, taking the lives of the bride and her bridesmaids.  The ghost of the bride is active today, especially during wedding events at the tavern. Some wedding photographers have even reported seeing her apparition appearing next to the (living) bride when looking through the camera viewfinder. Although, no one has caught her on film.

Hotel Conneaut (Erie, Pennsylvania)

Elizabeth and her new husband stayed in Room 321 on their honeymoon. Their blissful vacation was interrupted by a raging fire in the hotel. The husband was able to get out alive, but Elizabeth was trapped in the room and died. The heartbroken bride still roams the third floor, looking for her husband and sobbing. Wearing a wedding dress, she leaves behind the smell of jasmine.

Curves (Onondaga Hill, New York)

A similar story appears in Onondaga Hill folklore. About 60 years ago, a young couple died in a car crash on a very snaky road just after their wedding. People claim to see the bride on Halloween. Her glowing figure floats down the road in a wedding gown, searching for her husband. Some say she carries a bright orange lantern. To read more about this legend, visit Weird New York.

Baker Mansion (Altoona, Pennsylvania)

Anna Baker, the daughter of the rich Elias Baker, fell in love with a local steelworker. Her father forbade her to marry him, because he was of lower class. She died alone. Much later, The Baker Mansion (in Altoona, PA) was made into a museum and a wedding dress was put on display in a glass case in Anna’s bedroom. When there is a full moon, the dress violently shakes, sometimes to the point of almost breaking the glass. Myth says she is so mad she never got to wear a wedding dress, and therefore shakes it in anger. Some people often report seeing it dance by itself (with the shoes tapping along).

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.

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.

The first half of a 2-week show. We love being able to catch up with previous guests. We talk all things paranormal. 

There are many reasons why people listen to paranormal podcasts. Some people listen because they believe in the paranormal and want to learn more about it. Others listen because they are curious about the paranormal and want to hear stories about it. Some people listen because they enjoy being scared or entertained by the stories. Paranormal podcasts cover topics related to the paranormal, such as UFOs, ghosts, Bigfoot, and the afterlife. Some podcasts feature interviews with experts, witnesses, or researchers in the paranormal field. Others present dramatizations, stories, or call-ins from people who have experienced the paranormal

Located 20 miles northwest of Ann Arbor, Hell has heard all of the diabolical jokes. And they’ve made up a fair number of their own. The result makes for a fun road trip to a town chock-full of devilish puns, year-round Halloween décor and, truth be told, a lovely rural landscape.
 
Surrounding Livingston County includes acres of idyllic hill country and sparkling inland lakes. All told, Hell offers a heavenly Pure Michigan getaway.

Listen in to the episode #361 of the 222 Paranormal Podcast and enjoy!

According to data from Podcasthosting.org, 55% of Americans have listened to at least one episode of a podcast, and about 37% say they listen to a podcast at least every month. But have you ever considered exactly what’s going on in your mind as you listen to a podcast?

"Your brain is a complex organ," explains materials scientist and engineer Titi Shodiya, who hosts the podcast Dope Labs alongside molecular biologist Zakiya Whatley. "At any given moment, various parts of your brain are firing off different messages." Scientifically speaking, consuming information can activate your mesolimbic pathway, also known as the "reward pathway," releasing dopamine throughout the brain. This "feel-good" chemical is responsible for pleasure and lighting up your mind's reward centers. 

So how can listening to podcasts benefit your brain? A 2016 study out of UC Berkeley concluded that listening to narrative stories (much like podcasts) can stimulate multiple parts of your brain — so whether it's that adrenaline rush you get from true crime podcasts or a paranormal podcast that boosts your endorphins, there's truly something out there for everyone. 

Podcasts encourage the spirit of debate, and paranormal reports couldn’t be more suited. Skeptics and believers will argue about the existence of Bigfoot, UFOs, ghosts, and demonic presences until the end of time. Personal testimony and scientific research make the case for the validity of paranormal accounts. If you can’t believe it with your eyes, maybe you will with your ears.

Paranormal podcasts are popular for several reasons. According to a post on Student Assembly, some people listen to paranormal podcasts because they enjoy feeling scared in a safe wayOthers listen because they are curious about the paranormal and want to learn more about it 1Paranormal podcasts also encourage debate between skeptics and believers about the existence of Bigfoot, UFOs, ghosts, and demonic presences 

How or why is your choice, but we are grateful and thankful you chose to spend your time with us!

Amber

Founder, Case Manager & Lead Investigator

Amber Wellman grew up in Barberton, Ohio but moved to Cuyahoga Falls with her 2 children in 2005, where she still resides. She first became aware of the paranormal as a very young child, she didn’t just have the typical imaginary friend…. She had “the guys”. She has seen and felt and heard things others didn’t but it was chalked up to her imagination until she got old enough it was confirmed to be supernatural. She tried to make sense of it all. That is what fueled her interest in the paranormal further, the strange occurrences she was aware of but other people around her weren’t. She would see people standing nearby that others didn’t, or hear whispers in her ear at night while trying to sleep, or black shadows swirling around the ceiling. All these things made her wonder what more was out there. She wanted to learn more and not be afraid of the things happening.

She has been a paranormal enthusiast for years, searching for answers to the unknown, but professionally only since 2015 when she joined Ectovision Paranormal as a case manager. She has investigated numerous places from famous such as the Hinsdale House, Madison Seminary, and Monroe House to personal homes. She now tries to help others get answers and make sense of the paranormal, the unknown. She co-founded this team in the hopes of helping other teams, places, or homeowners find the answers they are searching for.

Her religious beliefs are from being raised in different churches growing up. Amber is an ordained minister and while she believes in God/Creator, she was also raised with native american beliefs. So while she’s not a religious person, she is spiritual. She believes that angels do watch over us all but you get back what you put out into the universe.

Chris

Lead IT, Spirit Counselor & Investigator

Chris was born in Ohio, but he has lived in many other places. He has learned spiritual nuances from the many places he has lived from northeastern Ohio to the Smoky Mountains of Georgia; a reservation in South Dakota to Amish country in western New York and points in between. He currently resides in Summit County, Ohio with his wife and children.

Chris is an ordained minister who has spent his life interested in and studying the supernatural. He is an empath and both an excellent listener and observer. He suffered from night terrors as a small child, and always searched for a meaning behind why they happened to him. This led him to a deeper study and research of the paranormal and psychology, how it affects life, and how life affects it. Chris also has experience as an investigator and production hand with EctoVision Paranormal. Where he investigated and assisted in filming investigations for private residences and historical sites including places such as The Monroe House, and the Hinsdale House.

Chris is actually quite skeptical about most paranormal activities, and yet open possibilities both mundane and supernatural. As a student of both psychology and parapsychology, he has a clear understanding that the world is more than we see, hear, feel, and often understand, but this also means he is always looking for the best answers. 

Robin

Researcher & Investigator

As a youngster I grew up hearing my elders whisper about my maternal; great-grandmother and her " cards" and her "gift", how she has lived a gypsy lifestyle, running away and joining the circus at 14 years old. It wasn't until I was older that I figured out what all the talk was about. I was gifted her "cards" which turned out to be a deck of tarot cards. I have fond memories of playing "cards" with my great-grandmother, little did I know, she was reading my cards! It was a few years later that I learned that she was a clairvoyant, it was then that I became interested in the metaphysical and spirituality. Upon moving out and feeling free to explore, I began reading and learning about my interest. 

Upon my father's passing, is when I became interested in the paranormal. I had several experiences where I felt his presence before he crossed over. My experiences lead me to further research about paranormal activity and I have spent years reading, talking, and learning about the world of paranormal activity. I have gone on to have many paranormal experiences. which has kept me interested in learning how I may be of help to others.

I have lived in Cuyahoga Falls, Summit County since I was 7 years old. I am a history buff of sorts and familiar with folklore and urban legends regarding the area. I am a mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many. My motto in life is " The day you think you know it all, is the day you need to throw in the towel"

Justine 

Researcher & Investigator

I have had an interest in the paranormal & metaphysical world for as long as I can remember. Most of us had an imaginary friend, I believe I had a spirit. Most often when a child has a spirit it gets shrugged off as an imaginary friend. Back when I was a child no one talked about it the paranormal, they would believe you were crazy. I see and sometimes feel the energy around me. In regard to the metaphysical world, I have accumulated several stones, gems, and practices. My sister and I go out late a night to places to just sit and see if we connect with anyone. It is really great to share this with my sister by birth. She feels and does not see. A lot of the time we are just called sisters.

According to data from Podcasthosting.org, 55% of Americans have listened to at least one episode of a podcast, and about 37% say they listen to a podcast at least every month. But have you ever considered exactly what’s going on in your mind as you listen to a podcast?

"Your brain is a complex organ," explains materials scientist and engineer Titi Shodiya, who hosts the podcast Dope Labs alongside molecular biologist Zakiya Whatley. "At any given moment, various parts of your brain are firing off different messages." Scientifically speaking, consuming information can activate your mesolimbic pathway, also known as the "reward pathway," releasing dopamine throughout the brain. This "feel-good" chemical is responsible for pleasure and lighting up your mind's reward centers. 

So how can listening to podcasts benefit your brain? A 2016 study out of UC Berkeley concluded that listening to narrative stories (much like podcasts) can stimulate multiple parts of your brain — so whether it's that adrenaline rush you get from true crime podcasts or a paranormal podcast that boosts your endorphins, there's truly something out there for everyone. 

Podcasts encourage the spirit of debate, and paranormal reports couldn’t be more suited. Skeptics and believers will argue about the existence of Bigfoot, UFOs, ghosts, and demonic presences until the end of time. Personal testimony and scientific research make the case for the validity of paranormal accounts. If you can’t believe it with your eyes, maybe you will with your ears.

Paranormal podcasts are popular for several reasons. According to a post on Student Assembly, some people listen to paranormal podcasts because they enjoy feeling scared in a safe wayOthers listen because they are curious about the paranormal and want to learn more about it 1Paranormal podcasts also encourage debate between skeptics and believers about the existence of Bigfoot, UFOs, ghosts, and demonic presences

Established in 1835, Wolfinger Cemetery is one of the oldest in the county. And by all accounts, it also seems to be one of the most haunted.

Do a Google search for Wolfinger and you won't find much. Well, you will, but it's pretty much all the same information, word for word in most cases.


The most haunted metro park in Ohio, and it has a cemetery in it. Ghost kids playing with visitors and do you know what a tree tombstone means? All in this week's episode. The legend of Wolfinger generally goes something like this,

Inside Wolfinger Cemetery, the graves of two parents and their three children line the wooded edge. They all died within days of each other. Ghostly children have been seen playing around the graves, particularly one girl who is about ten or twelve years old.

And, that's pretty much all there is to it. This location seems interesting enough to put it on my "Places To Visit This Summer," but a little too vague to discuss here in any great detail.

Shrouded in mystery, rumors of a large black object that has orbited for over 200 years is floating around. Claims say this phenomenon has been sending intense signals towards planet earth. For years scientists tried to unravel the meaning. And now these signals have been decoded. If this is true, then it's been watching us for 13000 years. This terror known as The Black Knight.

Nicola tesla. Built a large tower to study anicteric Electricity and free power. His lab was in Colorado Springs. One evening in 1899 tesla was shocked to receive a signal. He believed it was artificial because he never sent out anything. He was receiving numbers in a regular pattern. He believed they were coming from High in the atomizer. Turns out he was wrong, it wasn’t coming from earth it was coming from space. He was quoted in a newspaper saying “I believe numbers are being used for communication because numbers are universal”.

A few years later Guglielmo Marconi inventor of the wireless radio picked up the same signal also. Then Jorgen Halls  a radio engineer sent out signals and he received the same signals back a few seconds later.  

Now this isn’t anything unexplainable this is called radio echoes. These usually accor 1?7th of a second after there sent. These were taking 15 seconds. These are now known as Long delay echos

May 4th, 1954 2 years before Sputnik newspapers reported that one or two satellites were circling the earth. This was reported by Donald Keyhow he was the founder of NICAP.   The base out of white sands was tracking one or two satellites. They were 400 and 600 miles above the earth.

In this episode, we talk about Oceanic Legends and monsters.

Facing the open ocean can be terrifying. Miles from shore across storm-tossed seas, with nothing but water in all directions--including straight down--a sailor or fisherman cannot help but wonder what lurks in the depths. When the oceans were still unexplored, these fears often took the form of imaginary monsters.

Many sea monsters include features from living animals. A large tentacle becomes part of a monstrous sea serpent or many-armed kraken: The eye sees a fragment; the mind fills in the rest. A blend of tall tales, mistaken identity, and resonant cultural symbols, stories of sea monsters often reveal more about the minds of the imaginers than they do about the natural world.

According to sea monster myth and legends, the sea bishop or bishop-fish was caught and taken to the King of Poland, who showed it to a group of Catholic bishops. When the bishops released the creature, it made the sign of the cross before disappearing back under the waves.

The bishop-fish is a type of fish that looks like a man—specifically, like a Catholic bishop—while other variations include legends of the sea monk, a fish that looks like a monk. Later experts came to the conclusion that the sea monk was probably actually an Angel shark, a type of shark that is also known as a monkfish.

The bishop-fish made an appearance in the fourth volume of Conrad Gesner’s Historiae animalium, an “inventory of renaissance zoology,” as well as Johann Zahn’s Specula physico-mathematico-historica notabilium ac mirabilium sciendorum, and has been associated with the imagery of the half-human, half-fish sages known as Apkallu in ancient Mesopotamian mythology.

 

In Japan, these sea monsters were pure nightmare fuel for sailors who believed in the myths surrounding this creature. Umibōzu is a giant, shadowy, humanoid-like monster who terrorizes sailors who are unlucky enough to cross paths with it during a voyage. Upon encountering the creature, what was once a beautiful day with calm waters immediately turns into thunderous chaos with harsh waves and never-ending rain.

According to Japanese mythology, when an Umibōzu appears, they will either immediately attack a ship and drown its crew, or ask for a barrel from the ship’s supply as an offering. If the crew complies with the creature’s demand, sometimes the Umibōzu will spare the ship. But in order to ensure a safe travel away from the sea monster, sailors say that giving the Umibōzu a bottomless barrel will leave the creature confused, giving the ship and its crew an opportunity to flee before the Umibōzu realizes it has been tricked.

As paranormal investigators, we seek the secrets and truths of what happens on the other side. Are we constrained to one area? Can we communicate with our loved ones? Will we see and know all?

One of the most interesting buildings in Manhattan is certainly a landmark, though it doesn’t come up as often as many of the others. Possibly because this building is a landmark not for its height, or its grandeur, but because of the darkness that surrounds it. Built between 1880 and 1884, the Dakota started off as a building alone in what was, at the time, an empty area of the island of Manhattan. Today, we call that area the Upper West Side, and it is far from empty.

The most famous story of Lennon’s ghost appearing at the Dakota was told by Yoko Ono. As the story goes, Yoko, who lived in the Dakota for 20 years after Lennon’s death, saw the spirit of the musical god sitting at his piano. Lennon turned to Yoko and said “Don’t be afraid. I am still with you,” before vanishing. The first reported sighting of Lennon’s ghost was in 1983 when Joey Harrow and Amanda Moores spotted the Beatle standing at the entrance of the Dakota. Harrow claimed that Lennon was surrounded by an ominous light, and Moores said that she almost walked up to Lennon, but the look on his face suggested he wasn’t in the mood to talk to strangers. I suppose being shot in the back five times by a stranger would make you wary.

Before his death, John Lennon claimed to have had his own paranormal experiences in the Dakota. Lennon told tales of seeing a spirit he called The Crying Lady walking the halls of the building. The going theory is that Lennon, and others who have seen this Crying Lady, are seeing the ghost of Elise Vesley, who managed the Dakota through the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Elise, who was way into the paranormal herself, believed that she had psychokinetic powers and was a major player in the Vedantist movement. As is often the story when it comes to ghosts, Mrs. Vesley suffered a great tragedy when her son was hit by a truck outside the Dakota. The boy died, and by all accounts, Mrs. Vesley was never the same again. She took to being extra nice, and extra protective of the children that lived in the Dakota.

The Comte de Saint Germain (French pronunciation: 1691 or 1712 – 27 February 1784) was a European adventurer, with an interest in science, alchemy and the arts. He achieved prominence in European high society of the mid-18th century. Prince Charles of Hesse-Kassel considered him to be "one of the greatest philosophers who ever lived". St. Germain used a variety of names and titles, an accepted practice amongst royalty and nobility at the time. These include the Marquis de Montferrat, Comte Bellamarre, Chevalier Schoening, Count Weldon, Comte Soltikoff, Manuel Doria, Graf Tzarogy, and Prinz Ragoczy. To deflect enquiries as to his origins, he would make far-fetched claims, such as being 500 years old, leading Voltaire to sarcastically dub him "The Wonderman" and that "He is a man who does not die, and who knows everything".

His real name is unknown while his birth and background are obscure, but towards the end of his life, he claimed that he was a son of Prince Francis II Rákóczi of Transylvania. His name has occasionally caused him to be confused with Claude Louis, Comte de Saint-Germain, a noted French general.

The Cannons shot out, piercing the night like thunder....

162 years ago the Civil War literally divided our great nation.  Brother against brother, cousin against cousin, north vs. south fought some of the most deadliest battles on American soil. Blood spilled into the ground, as young men and seasoned soldiers gave the ultimate sacrifice. But some sentinels are still on duty. The battle continues for the ghosts and spirits caught in a never-ending war. Battle cries and rhythmic drums still fill moonlight nights across fields and battle sites. Ghost soldiers still are on duty, some showing up on camera and in photos for the brave ghost hunters and some who are not even trying to connect with the dead.

Listen in as the 222 Paranormal Podcast explores the Civil War, tells ghost stories and shares some cool paranormal sites you can visit.

Mystical as Tarot Cards are, so is our guest Katrina Marie. Her famous tarot readings take her to an unknown realm as she will explain in our interview. She shares her own near-death experiences that will leave you in shock as well as her triumphant story of overcoming some great personal hurdles. 

Most popularly used tools of divination in the world today. While not as simple as some other methods, like pendulums or tea leaves, the Tarot has drawn people into its magic for centuries. Today, cards are available to purchase in hundreds of different designs. There is a Tarot deck for just about any practitioner, no matter where his or her interests may lie. Whether you’re a fan of Lord of the Rings or baseball, whether you love zombies or are interested in the writings of Jane Austen, you name it, there’s probably a deck out there for you to choose.

Although methods of reading the Tarot have changed over the years, and many readers adopt their own unique style to the traditional meanings of a layout, in general, the cards themselves haven’t changed much. Lets look at some of the early decks of Tarot cards, and the history of how these came to be used as more than just a parlor game.

 

Tarot as Divination

In both France and Italy, the original purpose of Tarot was as a parlor game, not as a divinatory tool. It appears that divination with playing cards started to become popular in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century, although at that time, it was far simpler than the way we use Tarot today.

By the eighteenth century, however, people were beginning to assign specific meanings to each card, and even offer suggestions as to how they could be laid out for divinatory purposes.

In this episode, we return to the mysticism of the Ouija board. What powers does it hold? Can it activate Poltergyst activity? We received an email that took us back to talking about the Ouija board and the feelings associated with it. It is one of the most requested topics we get emails about. Some of the stories we will be reading to you are. 

The open circle

When Vince, now 30, was a child, one of his friends goaded him into playing with an Ouija board in his basement. Young Vince didn’t expect anything unusual to happen, so he went along with it. Once they started to play, however, the lights began to flicker, the air around them grew cold, and a spirit began to communicate with them through the board. The spirit spelled out a Russian name and claimed he had been murdered.

 

“We took a break to make some pizza rolls,” Vince says, “but we forgot to close the circle when we were done.” (If you’re new to Ouija board stories, that’s a giant no-no!) “After returning to the basement, the energy was much heavier, and books and things were sprawled out on the floor.” And yet, the board remained perfectly still in the center of the room, just how they had left it. “Upon looking at a mirror that we had nearby, the eye of the Ouija board was moving sporadically in its reflection.”

 

Solo play

Most people play with a Ouija board in groups, or at least with one other person. But Ossiana wanted to try to use it on her own. She put her hands on the pointer and asked questions, but nothing happened. She took her hands off of the pointer and was about to put the game away when the planchette began to move around on its own. “I’ll never try that again,” says the 30-year-old from New Jersey.

 

A haunted housewarming

“The first time I used a Ouija board, I was about six or seven, and I was with my mom and older sister, who was about 15 at the time,” Paige, now 24, tells Reader’s Digest. The family had just moved to a new house, much bigger and much older than the one they lived in previously. That night, Paige, her mother, and her sister were eating pizza on the living room floor since they didn’t have all of their furniture set up yet, and they put on a fire to ease the chill of the fall air. After dinner, her sister pushed her mom to let them play with their old Ouija board

“As we were using it,” Paige recounts, “a box in the living room that had some books in it literally flew across the room.” Shortly after that, the fire inexplicably went out, and their mother was so shaken that she took the girls to their grandmother’s house to spend the night. If this story doesn’t convince you to skip the Ouija board and opt for one of these Halloween movies for kids instead, we don’t know what will!

In this episode, we talk about the phenomenon of Walk In's. Also known as Soul Exchange. 

A walk-in can only occur when one soul is ready to leave their earthly life and agrees to give the body over to another. Souls decide to leave earth for many reasons, but for walk-outs the most common reason is the desire to cut a life short due to suicidal feelings that won't subside. In some other cases, their Life Plan may be complete, their karma for that lifetime complete, or because they are unable to learn or grow in that particular life any further. The person's Higher Self may have plans for them in a new, better lifetime, and so withdraw the essence from the body. With the case of suicide, the soul is saved the need to harm their own body in order to leave it, for the walk-in soul requires a healthy body. So, an agreed upon switch is made, leaving a healthy body that another soul can utilize.
