Types Of Hauntings
A residual haunting is the most common form. Believed to be an imprint in time this spirit energy plays itself out again and again. It may happen once a day, once a week or once every 100 years. A person may hear footsteps, hear sounds and see ghostly images. This type of haunting is frequently confused with intelligent hauntings. Could it be energy trapped in time from a traumatic event or is it a spirit performing the same repetitive action day after day. No one really knows. Not unlike a tape player the energy is stored in the fabric of time.
This type of haunting is what most people think of when they hear the word ghost. This spirit energy can interact with humans. Although fairly rare,the common belief is that a soul has not crossed over usually due to a traumatic event here on earth. A murder, car accident or just unfinished business is believed to keep a person's soul here on earth until they have come to terms with what is holding them here. This type of spirit energy can also manipulate small objects.
A Portal Haunting is the the term used usually when your dealing with negative type spirits. Although very controversal and the most overused word by psychic's and medium's it seems there may be some merit to the concept. Many times when a person is believed to be under the influence of a demonic or in-human spirit sometimes they will see multiple spirits of all shapes and sizes including negative and human spirits. It is believed the portal is the space in time that these spirits travel through.
Some believe a Poltergeist type spirit is a demon that has failed it's mission here on earth and is now destined to be forever insane. Whatever the story might be this is one situation you never want to be in. This type of spirit is extremely difficult if not impossible to get rid of. There will usually be a teenage girl involved or someone that is going through an extremely stressful time in their life. It seems these beings are somehow able to unknowingly use that person as a host to do their dirty work. In this type of haunting physical manipulation of objects large and small can occur. People have also been reported to have been attacked by these spirits.
A coward at best a demon is a rarely seen entity that hides in the shadows looking for that easy target such as a child or elderly person to attach itself to. These beings can infiltrate a family and be there for years before being detected. Their intent is to harm and create chaos within the family. Although rare a person can be possessed by a demon. They are extremely difficult to get rid of. Even with religious intervention it is next to impossible to completely exorcise them. Many times they seem to be gone, but are really still there waiting to return sometimes years later.
The house above was featured on an episode of A
Haunting in 2006. The Beckwith family was tormented by what seemed to be an in-human entity that forced them to leave their home leaving behind many of their belongings. The home has been for sale for years with no takers. We were contacted by the original homeowners who had owned the home for 150 years before the Beckwith's had moved in. We were asked to go in and perform a blessing on the home. The family thought their deceased father's soul was trapped there by the evil that was in the home. The full story of our experience and how we were confronted by this demon will be posted soon.
The Yaple family has endured years of torment by a demon that so far has been impossible to rid from the home. We have brought out the best in the field to try and exorcise this demon from the home and even though we have suceeded in bringing them periods of tranquility this entity keeps coming back. We have found over the years that we are able to weaken these demons through religious practices, but in the long run they will usually return at some point. The lesson to be learned by anyone who thinks this is a joke is don't mess with this world. Some out there think they know the secret in how to control a demon or they play around with a Ouija Board thinking it's a game. Once the attachment begins chances are it will be a life long ordeal. Some have this happen to them by accident like the Yaples, however the majority of people bring it on themselves and that's when we get the call.
Our new show called My Little Terror produced by Leftfield Pictures and The Biography
Channel received very high ratings. We showed what happens to children in the aftermath of paranormal activity within the home. Some of these children display amazing abilities to adapt and somehow thrive in an enviroment where most would think otherwise. After years of working with families who've had paranormal problems we are being brought in as experts to help define for the viewer how these children manage to cope under such extraordinary circumstances. Again the name of the show is My Little Terror. The episode is Double Double Twins In Trouble. It aired on Nov 1st so watch for the re-runs.
I Have An Attachment. What should I do?
People call all the time saying they have a demon attached to them. As an investigator who has handled to many cases
like this to count I have found a couple of things that really annoy me. Many times these individuals at some point in their life have dabbled in the occult and it has come back to bite them though they will always tell you they don't know how it happened. Another annoying thing is how demanding they all are in asking us to place our behinds on the line to save them.
Usually by the time a person calls they have stopped living a normal life long ago and don't even realize it. Their
Demonic attachment is calling the shots many times with disastrous results. You become isolated and depressed almost
like living in
some sort of cocoon where reality seems so far away. If you are not going to grab the bull by the horns and
yourself chances are this will be your life forever. The good news is you can change your situation
if you want to in
I would like to say just pray and everything will get better, but this more then likely will not work by itself. It's much more complicated then that. You have to change you. The way you do this is by not playing the demon's game. The sooner you
create distance between you and this being the sooner things will get better. Live your life like it's not there. Ignore it. Go
about your day like everyone else does. Think to yourself I'll be damned if I'm going to let some unseen entity control my life
and it's going to stop today. Is this going to be easy. Hell no, but there are no magic bullets. Success will not come to those
who are lazy. For these people there is no help. However for those of you who really want it it's just a small step away. You
just have to be diligent. I recently had someone say to me it's not going to work. To them I said it did for me. I had a Demonic influence in my life for years when I was young. How did I get rid of it. I followed my own advice. That simple. I
wanted my life back.
