If you are an avid viewer of Ghost Adventures and Most Haunted then it would be fair to assume that paranormal investigating is full of frights and jumps every night. If you also watch these shows you would also think that we get scratched and catch full body apparitions on camera on a regular basis. However, you would be wrong.  These shows are created for entertainment purposes and to give the viewer a cheap scare. Not saying I don’t, love these shows, cause I do, but I am now fully aware that a lot of hours of filming go into one 45 minute long show.

When I first started doing investigations I was pretty scared, I’m not gonna lie. I expected spirits to whisper in my ear, to be pushed, scratched and intimidated. Maybe I haven’t been to the right places yet, but so far I haven’t experienced this. What I have experienced can’t be explained. What I have experienced is so subtle that a camera crew would not be able to capture it. Spirit does not have to be aggressive and obvious to be noticed. When you walk into a building and you suddenly cannot breath as the air and atmosphere is thick, how would a TV show convey this? When your heart starts pounding because you feel yourself being stared down by someone or something you cannot see, how would a TV show convey this? The majority of interaction with spirits can not be seen, only felt.

One thing we always mention to our guests at the beginning of investigations is that sometimes we might not get any communication at all. That is OK. Spirits are not performing monkeys, hanging out in buildings waiting for our beck and call. One thing that genuine paranormal groups will never do is fake evidence. We would rather the guests go away and think the night was ‘boring’ that make accusations that a group is faking activity. Paranormal groups strive off of their reputations and a cheap thrill will never come before integrity. So if your night with a local paranormal group DIDN’T seem like an episode of Most Haunted then I would say stick with that group, as sooner or later you never know what you might encounter, at least you know it wasn’t faked.

The paranormal industry is becoming saturated with people trying to get their five minutes of fame by releasing a video full of cheap jumps and obvious scare tactics that genuine videos of subtle paranormal evidence are getting overlooked. I have realised that something doesn’t have to jump out at you to show you it is there, if a spirit can communicate through a flickering light or by changing the atmosphere in the room then I am satisfied with the investigation.

Ever since i was a young girl i suffered from depression. I felt alone, confused, anxious and nervous. I felt like i was living in a bubble and everything around me was going slow motion and i felt like i had no idea where i was heading.

Religion has never played a part in my life, i never believed in the idea of a sole being controlling the entire world, i also didn’t believe in a lot of the bible’s ideologies. However i always thought the idea was reassuring, the idea that ‘all will be ok, you are being watched over by God/Allah/Krishna’ (Insert god of choice here).

I knew deep down there was more to the world than just what we can see or hear or what can be explained with science. I have gut feelings and i can sense negative vibes, sometimes i feel like i have a better connection with children and animals. None of this made sense to me until i had a reading done by a Clairvoyant Medium called Sharon.

She explained to me that i am a lightworker, lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.  Sharon explained that i have a strong connection with animals and that i have healing hands. I have always been someone that likes to massage people and stroke them to send love, this all made so much sense.

She explained that as a lightworker you are more sensitive to people and their energy, you intuitively know if someone is feeling down or troubled, even if they don’t admit it. I was then invited to come along to fortnightly meditation sessions so help open myself up spiritually, and i can honestly say i have never been happier.

Since meditating my sleep has become better, i spent years suffering from insomnia, now i sleep straight for at least 7 hours. My anxiety has pretty much disappeared, where as i used to get a knot in my stomach and not want to go out, now i feel a lot more at ease and peaceful. A big part of learning about lightworkers is discovering how much belief they have in angels and spirit guides, something i never really thought about. Now i am aware that people would say how can i believe in angels yet i don’t believe in God? This is something i am trying to understand, i believe we are all energy connected in some way but who is the ‘master’ of all this energy, i do not know.

I am still very new to meditation, spirituality and lightwork but i hope to learn much more. 2014 is all about how i am going to better myself and learn more. I am still going to use this blog for horror and spooky features but i will also intertwine spirituality into it as this is now becoming a big part of my life and i want to share my experiences.

 

Vampires are mythological or folkloric beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person/being.

Vampires have populated folklore since the 18th century even though there is some evidence of it dating back to prehistoric times. The appearance of the vampire has evolved over time, from being corpse like figures in the early 1800s to being sparkly attractive, albeit pale, human-like figures.

One thing i have noticed over the past 15 years, specifically, is the increasing number of interest in the Vampire genre of films and TV series. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to True Blood and the Twilight trilogies, Vampires are starting to fascinate even the youngest viewers. One of the first Vampire films was Nosferatu, made in 1922, and was banned in some countries til the 70s because it was so terrifying. Below is a link to the entire film.

The Wikipedia page on Vampires is very interesting and reveals facts regarding the history and beliefs surrounding Vampires, including that the older Folkloric vampires weren’t believed to be sensitive to sunlight.

In modern culture Vampires are now seen as a sexy and mysterious being. With the likes of Spike from Buffy and Edward from Twilight becoming modern day pin ups for young girls. The Vampire culture has somewhat an air of romance about it. A pale man creeping into your room to suck on the blood from your neck and then perhaps turning you into an immortal being to spend eternity together……Kinda sweet really.

Sex and death have always blended effortlessly in films and television programmes, True Blood is one of the sexiest TV shows about, where vampires are praised for their sexual ability and all the girls seem to be flocking at their feet. Vampires are no longer something to fear, they are something to desire. Is this why there is a rise in modern day sightings of Vampires and a very heavy online presence of Vampire forums.

I would really love to speak to anyone who practices living as a vampire and believes in its lifestyle. If anyone has any comments please leave some in the box below. I would love to hear from you!!

 

My non-believer friend Gareth and i were having a very respectful debate the other day about ghosts and the paranormal, he stated that he puts the paranormal in the same bracket as religion, i disagreed with his belief but i respected it. I told him how i felt, that there is too much unexplained activity in the world to completely disregard the paranormal, and he respected my opinions.

One point that Gareth stated, which has stuck with me for the past few days, is that there are never any ‘Ghosts wearing a tracksuit’ or ‘Fat ghost in Louboutin shoes’. What he was getting at was, why is there never any modern ghost sightings, why is it always the cliched ‘woman in a white dress from the Victorian era’ sighting? Is this another example of mass hysteria, do people jump to conclusions when they start to believe their home is haunted so their eyes start playing tricks on them? It brings into question the legitimacy of lots of ghost sightings, which are genuine and which are fake will always be a cause for debate.

It is a shame that so many people desperate for Youtube hits will create fake ghost videos, this just makes it harder for genuine videos to get the recognition they deserve. I am not being skeptical i am just being aware and conscious of why non-believers feel the way they do. I feel that i should do my very best to try to get great evidence and solid proof so that even the non-believers cant explain it….

Check out this EVP i caught. Plug your earphones in…….

12 hours where all crime is legal. 12 hours where hate filled and angry people can murder. These 12 hours end and everything goes back to normal, where employment is at 1% and the economy is booming. Hmm…

This film was a roller coaster rider, but the metaphor doesn’t describe the tension and build up, it describes the massive loop holes obvious from the first 10 seconds. It is such a shame really, as i had high hopes for this film, i loved Sinister and Paranormal Activity.  The film jumps straight into the Sandins preparing for the annual purge, the children are anxious and the dad ensures them it will just be like every other year and they will be fine. Famous last words….

The Sandins are faced with a dilemma when young Charlie lets in a homeless man being chased by ‘Purgers’. It is now up to Ethan Hawke, sorry i mean James Sandin, to decide whether he release the homeless guy back into the street like an injured gazelle amongst the lions, or keep him inside and let 30 strangers kill him and his family? What would you do? James, being a big softie, can’t bear to carry the weight of this mans life on his heart, so instead he pulls out his massive gun and says ‘We are gonna fight’….. 

So he cant bear to indirectly kill one guy, but 30? Fiiiinnnne. Pass the bullets. So the savage purgers break into the house, dance and giggle around for a bit, then attempt to find the family to kill. I’m sorry, but that is a lot of effort for one homeless guy. There are about 5 very annoying scenes where a purger is face-to-face with a Sandin family member and they decide to recite some Shakespeare monologue before they pull the trigger, and in that time someone else turns up and shoots them from behind.

Even the Sandins neighbors turn up to join in on some Sandin blood shed, but wait, it gets to 7am (the end of the purge) and they all just stroll back to their home and continue to brew a pot of coffee, like nothing happened. I am sorry but any sane person would not feel the need to kill a person, even if it were legal for one day. A killer doesn’t have the restraints to deny the pleasure they get from blood shed to one day a year, if they had restraint there would be no murder at all. Wouldn’t it be a huge cycle of revenge to kill who killed your loved one the year before? 

I would personally just date my tax returns to the date of the Purge and live with the safety blanket of the ‘Crime Free day’, technically i committed tax evasion on the day where it was legal…so Na na Na na naaaaaaa. 

 

Oh i forgot to write *SPOILER ALERT* Woops. You will thank me.
