Episode Teaser :00

Intro 1:00

Some improvements, thanks to Patreon Support! 1:33

Some background on how this episode and conversation came about. 2:16

How are Patrick and both of our return guests connected? Ash is a connector. Slade is a matchmaker. 3:43

Patrick met Ash online during the “information gathering phase” of his “spiritual shift.” Ash then introduced Patrick to Slade and his work. 8:31

Ash brought the team together for this “triangle table.” The topic started out as a joke in a planning discussion, but ended up being something everyone decided to roll with. What’s up with the lack of straight men in the spiritual/metaphysical community? 11:51

Slade’s take on the initial question. Reincarnation, witch trials, and where the term “faggot” came from. 13:25

The suppression of the feminine: Susan Grace and the 2,000-year reign of men that ends in 2020. 15:58

The feminine archetype 19:23

Those who are excluded from a social order have to become more resourceful. 21:28

Straight men who are allies of the feminine and the spiritual are the real deal! Unfortunately, they’re all married. Ha! 23:15

Patrick’s take. Being “out” is important! 25:29

Healing the Mother Wound and toxic masculinity/femininity 28:52

Unraveling and falling apart 30:26

The Spiritualist Movement, Women’s Suffrage, and the Me Too Movement 32:44

Being “psy-curious”: The similarities of coming out of the spiritual closet and coming out as gay 35:40

When the response to you coming out is not good 40:35

Fear of acceptance, conversations at the Xerox machine (or the water cooler), and making others comfortable enough to share their stories 43:23

The dangers of coming out 47:03

Bigotry sometimes goes both ways 48:34

Making straight men feel welcome 51:20

“Everybody wants to be able to see someone in a space that looks like them.” 53:39

Are you a straight, psy-curious man who is looking for love? “Get thyself to a spirit circle!” 54:28

Catching up with Ash and what’s going on in her world 57:27

A whole different take on Stranger Angels over at SladeRoberson.com. Plus, “Be relentlessly helpful.” 59:54

The Story Behind The Conjuring with Andrea Perron - The Big Seance Podcast: My Paranormal World #98

Jul 20, 2017 01:45:18

Description:

Andrea Perron, author and eldest daughter from the family depicted in the 2013 film, The Conjuring, shares her terrifying yet beautiful true story. Plus her beautiful trilogy, the truth about Bathsheba, responding to critics, and future films in the works! Visit BigSeance.com for more info!

 

In this episode:

Episode Teaser :00 Intro 2:14 Some background on The Conjuring, Andrea Perron’s trilogy - House of Darkness House of Light, and how it all influenced Patrick and BigSeance.com. 2:49

 

The Story and the Trilogy

Welcome, Andrea Perron! 4:53 “I put everything on the line to tell this story.” Turning a decade of experiences into a manuscript. 6:05 "I’m working on screenplays right now for each one of the books, and in the next year or two the films will start to be released, one at a time." 7:48 The truth behind the Conjuring story. And Andrea has no resentment at all toward the 2013 film, The Conjuring. 8:09 The collective memoirs of an entire family’s haunting, yet spiritual journey. 10:30

 

Ed and Lorraine Warren

When did producers of The Conjuring start eyeing the Perron family story? Plus being a consultant for the film, and the Warren case files. 12:30 “…in this rare instance, the truth is stranger than fiction. And 'The Conjuring' is predominantly fictional.” 15:40 “Spiritual malpractice.” The horrific night of the séance, plus the Perron family left the relationship with the Warrens on bad terms. 15:40 “Paranormal investigation, doing this kind of research, living in this kind of environment, or even visiting this kind of an environment comes with some inherent risks and dangers. And if people don’t know what they’re doing, it can deteriorate quickly." 23:25

 

Keith Johnson and PIRO

The involvement of a young Keith Johnson, who discussed this case in episode 42 of The Big Seance Podcast. 25:30 Crucifixes, slamming doors and windows, and a slap in the face. 29:55 More on the Warrens’ involvement. 33:32

 

“There’s no veil. That’s a machination. That’s something that human beings have literally fabricated so that we can live in a realm that feels safe and secure to us.”

 

“We thought that ten years later when we left the farm, that we were going to be leaving them behind, and nothing could be further from the truth. Profound attachments were formed and have persisted, lifelong.”

 

We’re surrounded by spirit all the time, and “death is not anything more than a transformation.” 37:58 

 

“It’s because I’ve seen the dark side of existence that I choose to live in the light.”

 

“I saw a full-body manifestation of an old woman standing right beside me on the hearthstone of the fireplace. And she had every feature, she was a mirror image reflection of me, only of an old woman dressed in clothes from the 1700s...” 41:05

 

Being the Face of The Conjuring

The whirlwind journey of being the face of The Conjuring. 43:27

 

“They could not have cast that film better than they did.”

 

3 Future Films in the Works

More on the future film project. 49:15

 

“There’s no point in making another ‘hollyweirded' up, fictionalized film at all.”

 

“My message is one of peace and love and hope and reconciliation and acknowledgment and acceptance and dispelling fear. And the only way to dispel fear is to embrace it and to thank it for every time it ever saved you from making a bad decision, ever saved you from yourself, ever intervened on your behalf. But when you turn your life path over to it, when you relinquish your own personal power to fear, and you let it live you, then you only live a half life.” 54:25

 

Controversy and the Facts about Bathsheba Sherman

Norma, the current owner of the farmhouse contacted Patrick at BigSeance.com a few years ago, with several claims and thoughts on the movie and Andrea's books. 56:45 "She walked into the house and she put her hand down on the corner of the black stove in the kitchen. And she covered her eyes and she said, ‘There’s a malignant force in this house. There’s a malicious presence in this house. Her name is Bathsheba.’" 1:00:15

 

Responding to Criticism

Andrea’s powerful and emotional response to Norma’s claims. 1:04:49 “And my mother reluctantly turned that notebook over to her, including all of her recollections, and all of her sketches and drawings of everything that she had seen in the house. And she turned it over to Mrs. Warren and she never got it back." 1:21:05

 

April and Her Spirit Friend, Oliver

Reflecting on the heartbreaking yet beautiful story that is told in Andrea's trilogy, involving her recently departed youngest sister, April. As a child, April developed a very private friendship with the spirit of a young boy named Oliver. 1:22:58

 

Leaving the Farm

A difficult decision 1:30:25

 

Final Thoughts 

Final thoughts and where to find Andrea Perron! 1:34:30

 

Outro 1:41:46 Outtake (“A frog got in the house!”) 1:43:23 #Paranerd Hashtag 1:44:10

Announcement: Submit your questions for the Halloween Seance with Karen A. Dahlman - The Big Seance Podcast: My Paranormal World

Oct 10, 2016 03:53

Description:

Announcement!

Submit Your Questions for the Halloween Seance with Karen A. Dahlman!
Visit BigSeance.com/feedback.

I have a brief announcement and reminder for you.

You may be wondering why I showed up on your phone or in your app, without starting out with, “Big Seance Podcast episode… fill in the blank”. Well…

It’s because you need to make sure you’re involved in our upcoming Halloween seance!

I will be recording our Halloween seance with Ouija expert, Karen A. Dahlman and her board partner Rodney on Thursday, October 13th, 2016. As I’m sure you know by now, it will not be live, like we previously announced, but after we pre-record the seance, I’ll then work on releasing the video as soon as possible. I’ll also put out an actual podcast episode eventually with audio highlights from the seance.

So here’s what we need from you. We need your questions for the seance. Karen herself chimed in in the Big Seance Parlor on Saturday afternoon with some great tips and suggestions for questions. Here’s what she had to say:

I want everyone to know that you can ask ANY QUESTION you would like for our Seance Session. You are not limited to just the deceased! We can communicate with your animals, address past life curiosities, receive messages from Spirit, ask for guidance/inspiration in your personal life, inquire about any other information you are seeking... Be creative and ask your burning questions!

In addition to these questions, I plan on having a few questions of my own ready to go, and I’ll be focusing on contacting the spirits of several pioneers in the paranormal field.

 

Submitting Your Questions for the Halloween Seance

So how are you going to submit your questions? We REALLY want your question recorded in an audio format, with you introducing or not introducing yourself, however you choose. Remember that this audio will be featured in the video. The best way to learn to do that is by going to BigSeance.com/Feedback, and there you’ll find two simple ways to send in recordings of your questions. Of course, you can always e-mail your printed questions to me at Patrick@BigSeance.com as well. But again, PLEASE go to BigSeance.com/Feedback to learn how to send your question in an audio format, and that will make our Halloween Seance really great!

 

What's my deadline?

It’s Monday, October 10th at the time I’m throwing this out there, so you probably have until the early morning hours of the 13th, Central US time, to get your audio in. We’ve already got a few that I’m really excited about.

And if you’d like to get an idea of what we’re planning, you can watch our LIVE Ouija Session with Karen from February 26, 2016. The fastest and easiest way to get there is to go to BigSeance.com/LIVE to see all our past live events.

 

Well that’s it. you’ll hear from me again in just a few days with another episode that I’m excited for you to hear. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled October activities.

You Rock! Peace!

Podcast Awards Announcement! Daily Votes are Needed!

May 30, 2016 02:15

Description:

Hey #Paranerds!

As you may know, thanks to many of you, we have found our way onto the final slate of nominees for the Science and Medicine category of the People’s Choice Podcast Awards! It is such an honor to even be on that list, and I want to sincerely thank those of you who nominated us a while back. 

Your help is needed, because votes from YOU, the listener, the #paranerd, will determine the winner.

Voting is now open, and ends on June 12th. You can vote EVERY DAY by going to PodcastAwards.com. As I mentioned in the video I shared online, if you have friends who would love to help us by voting, or even sharing the video, for that matter, that would be awesome. Maybe they’ll find a new podcast to listen to in the process, even if it’s not the Big Séance. That is one of the cool bonuses of the podcast awards… it promotes this growing medium. In the video, I decided to include highlights of past guests and episodes from the last 2 years. It was kind of fun.

So just to recap, go to PodcastAwards.com today (and if you’re REALLY a #paranerd, every day until June 12th, 2016.) And as always, vote or no vote, my #paranerds rock.

Thank you.

Patrick

Outro 17:23

 

If you didn’t already know, I’m a very nostalgic person. I’m constantly being taken back to an earlier time by a smell, a taste, sometimes a sound, and sometimes at the most random times and places… and I love it. I don’t know if nostalgia is exactly the right term for this, but I think it is a gift to be grateful for. I don’t mean a gift like having psychic abilities, or playing an instrument, but I really love nostalgic moments and I’m always encouraging my senses to catch a ride and take advantage of them. But I’m so very grateful for them, because I was fortunate enough to have a great childhood with an amazing family, and I feel like life would be kind of sad without tiny little breaks for a road trip to the past to re-experience some of those great moments.

When I was little, I used to spend quite a bit of time with my grandparents at their house. I called them Bamma and Bampa, and I still do. For a while, my Bamma had a fabric shop that I would also spend time in. I loved helping her clean things and organize merchandise, even though I’m not sure I was truly as much help as I thought I was. I can still hear the sound of Bamma’s sewing machine running and the soap operas on the TV in the background. It’s funny, but seeing older daytime TV commercials from that time period will put me right back in the fabric shop too.

When I think of my time with Bamma and Bampa in their old house from that time, I think of holidays. I think of different ways my Bamma would entertain me and keep me busy. One of the funny and strange things I always think about is Peanut Butter and mayonnaise sandwiches. I know I know. Peanut Butter and Mayonnaise sandwiches. My Bampa, who died several years ago, would make them for me. Apparently he used to eat them as a kid, and I always assumed it was a German thing. I did learn to love them at the time, though the thought of eating one now makes my stomach turn.

Well cut to a week or so ago. I discovered we have this channel on cable called Antenna TV! Apparently it has been around for a year or two and I had no clue. There are SO many shows and sitcoms from the 70s and 80s on this channel, and if you’re not careful, you can find yourself skipping a night’s sleep just to watch them. But that night I found myself sucked into an old episode of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson! I loved Johnny Carson growing up, probably only because it was a special moment to be able to stay up that late. I watched Johnny Carson at my own house growing up plenty of times, but for some reason the other night I was picking up serious nostalgia watching Johnny… and it took me back to Bamma and Bampa’s house. In this particular episode, Cass Elliott would make one of her last public appearances before her tragic death from a heart attack, and she was talking to Johnny about health issues she was having involving her heart, but she didn’t seem to be taking it too seriously. Such a haunting moment.

But also on this episode, Johnny was interviewing the hilarious Buddy Hackett. Coming and going from commercial as the familiar theme song would play, I was taken back to my Bamma and Bampa’s house. And I was in my mom’s old bedroom trying to sleep. And in this memory I was hearing them watch Johnny Carson on the other side of the wall in the living room. Suddenly Johnny and Buddy Hackett make two references to Peanut Butter and Mayonnaise sandwiches, and how the mayonnaise helps the peanut butter go down easier.

Amazing, right? How often do you hear someone bring up peanut butter and mayonnaise in the same sentence?

So I’ve told myself that this moment of nostalgia was orchestrated by my Bampa… a Hello from the other side.

An interesting side note to this story is that within the same week of having this experience, my mom saw a local psychic here in Missouri, one whose name I keep hearing about. Well my mom can’t stop talking about the connections and validations from this amazing reading… and one of the biggest messages that came through was from my Bampa.

Another interesting side note goes back to the reading I received from Dena DeCastro in our first Astrology episode. Do you remember her saying that I’d be having more paranormal experiences soon?

I know you all have to have had similar experiences. Some of you are highly intuitive, and some of you have abilities most of us don’t have, and so I’m sure there are lots of stories out there. Feel free to jump in the Big Séance Parlor on Facebook and share… or contact me!

#5 - Madame Delphine Lalaurie, the real life murderess portrayed in “American Horror Story: Coven” (episode 7 - Aug. 6, 2014)

This was my first opportunity to have a friend of mine, Victoria Cosner, on the podcast. She’s author of Mad Madame Lalaurie: New Orleans’ Most Famous Murderess revealed. We chatted about the real life Delphine Lalaurie, portrayed by Kathy Bates in American Horror Story: Coven. A lot of talk about New Orleans in this episode. Plus we had a bonus discussion on cemeteries! Victoria is also author of Missouri’s Mad Doctor McDowell, a book she co-authored with Lorelei Shannon. And you may remember hearing them talk about this book on the show in a hilarious episode more recently. 13:15

#4 - Departing Visions & After Death Communication w/ Carla Wills-Brandon (episode 31 - Mar. 19, 2015)

Carla Wills-Brandon, author and researcher, discusses Deathbed or Departing Visions and other After Death Communication. We also talk about Death Phobia as well as an exciting discussion about psychomanteums! Check out Carla’s book, Heavenly Hugs: Comfort, Support, and Hope from the Afterlife, which is also found on theBigSeance.com Recommended Reading list. 14:16

#3 - The Story of a True Haunting w/ Edwin F. Becker, Part 1 (episode 20 - Nov. 6, 2014)

So this was part 1 of a 2-part episode. Mr. Becker shared his story of the very real haunting experiences that he and his family experienced in 1970. The story, which involves the very first televised exorcism by NBC, and was featured on an episode of Paranormal Witness, is told in his bestselling book, True Haunting. And one thing that I always hear that stands out with people in this episode… is Ed’s voice. He has a great voice for storytelling… particularly if it’s spooky. If you didn’t hear the 2nd half of the conversation, I would encourage you to check it out. 15:09

#2 - Psychic Predictions & Prophesies for 2015 (episode 24 - Dec. 23, 2014)

This was actually THE most popular episode for nearly a year until the number 1 episode booted it out of it’s place. This was an episode in which I gathered Psychic Predictions and Prophecies for 2015 from people like Janice Carlson, Angela Thomas, Rob Gutro, Carole J. Obley, Karen A. Dahlman, Lee Allen Howard, and Marilyn Painter. And I have to tell you… it’s an interesting listen now that 2015 has come to an end. You might want to check it out again. 16:18

#1 - Ghost Hunters & the Ghosts of St. Charles: Over My Dead Body (episode 41 - Sept. 8, 2015)

This last fall, Syfy aired an episode of Ghost Hunters where they highlighted and investigated several locations in a city I love and know well — St. Charles, Missouri. A lot of locals were very excited and waited patiently for this special episode in Ghost Hunter’s 10th season. So MY episode of the Big Seance Podcast came out ahead of the Ghost Hunters episode, and I gave some heads up on the locations and stories you’re likely to see. A lot of that information came from Ghosts of St. Charles, a great book by Michael Henry! 17:51

The Legend of the Milton Schoolhouse - The Big Séance Podcast: My Paranormal World #50

Dec 10, 2015 42:36

Description:

Are trapped ghosts inside the Milton Schoolhouse? Are there mysterious spirits, unrelated to the legend, that call the Milton home? Or perhaps there has never been a ghostly presence in the building. Join me as we chat with Milton co-owner, Meredith, as well as previous guest, Ginger Collins-Justus. Paranormal or not, you MUST visit the Milton and see its current reincarnation! Visit BigSeance.com for more info.  

"The Milton Schoolhouse is a place for innovators, dreamers, bold visionaries, entrepreneurs, inventors, artists, daring pioneers- and renaissance people."

 

Pssst... Are you looking for the SpeakPipe Link?

 

 

In this episode:

Episode Preview :00 Intro 1:51 Take a ride with me! We’re headed to Alton, Illinois for Maeva’s Coffee Shop at the Milton Schoolhouse! 2:24 The legend and history of the Milton Schoolhouse, which was featured on Syfy’s Ghost Hunters in 2010. 4:02 Troy Taylor’s article from AltonHauntings.com Ginger Collins-Justus and I sit down at Maeva’s with co-owner of the Milton Schoolhouse, Meredith. She introduces us to the Milton and gives a brief timeline of events and renovation since purchasing the building in 2009. 7:52 Patrick describes the Milton Schoolhouse and what you’ll find when you walk in. 9:49 I begin asking Meredith about the legend. And she gives us a cool behind the scenes look at Jason and Grant’s visit with T.A.P.S. 10:26 Is there any truth to the legend? 13:40 So what about the reports of hauntings? Is it haunted? And who is haunting it? And what about the evidence from the Ghost Hunters episode? 14:53 Riverbend Paranormal   Being a respectful landlord to the presence of both the physical and spiritual. (Not getting the answer I apparently was looking for, I kept pestering Meredith about activity in the building.) 15:56 I missed the cooler story. What’s the latest news from the Milton? 16:37 Templar Brewing Co is moving into the Milton. What does Ginger think? As an intuitive medium, does she sense a paranormal presence in the building? 17:28 Ginger is also the owner of Missouri History and Hauntings. Does she think there’s any truth to the Milton legend? 21:02 Schools hold lots of energy from decades of students coming and going, memories, experiences, and history. Is it that residual energy that people claim to feel and experience here?  22:51 Getting a brief tour of the building, meeting Buford, and stumbling into THE boiler room! 25:06 Leaving Maeva’s and feeling silly about focusing on the legend and the paranormal, when there is so much more to the Milton. And why is it that I sleep like a baby in “the most haunted” places? 26:44 If you have stories or have had paranormal experiences from the Milton Schoolhouse, please contact me! I’d love to hear about your experiences. 28:36 Another audio issue of Tim Prasil’s Spectral Edition! (Possessed Girl - Club House Ghost) 28:53 Catching up with Ginger Collins-Justus and talking about some upcoming events she’s planning. Be sure to listen to Ginger’s previous appearance on episode 23 of the podcast. 32:50 The Milton is SO much more than a place for paranerds to fantasize about! It’s a super cool community and a place for inspiration. Please visit the website for the Milton Schoolhouse! Visit the “news” link in the menu for a beautiful blog written by Meredith. I read nearly every blog entry. It chronicles the journey they’re taking at the Milton. Many of you might appreciate the post titled Paranormal Preservationists. 36:13 Look forward to an upcoming Milton Schoolhouse episode from our friends over at the History Goes Bump podcast! 38:29 Hey Meredith, can you repeat that? 39:03 Outro 40:06 Paranerdal Hashtag 41:41

 

Thank you, Meredith and Ginger!!

 A quick summary of this episode! :38

 Leaving St. Louis for Lamberts Cafe in Sikeston, MO 1:54

 Stayed the night at the Hilton Memphis (Sorry, Elvis) 2:49 We arrived in the beautiful and historic Natchez, MS. View the photos I took around the city in my Natchez album on Flickr. 3:14  King’s Tavern — Featured on Ghost Adventures in Season 7, episode 18 from 2013. Kings Tavern is the oldest standing building in the Mississippi Territory and Natchez and its history goes all the way back to 1769. 3:36  Plan B and stumbling into a beautiful surprise! 4:17  Dinner at the historic Bowie’s Tavern — We talked to some residents who recommended we have dinner at Bowie’s Tavern, which is on Broadway in Natchez. And they made a great choice for us. Good food and really nice people. The historic building overlooks the Mississippi river and was originally a cotton warehouse. They also proudly display a mahogany bar that was built around 1880. They also have lodging on the upper floor with a view of the river! 5:04  Spending the morning in the beautiful Natchez City Cemetery for some photography. Check out that photo album on Flickr. 6:03  The mysterious and unique grave of Florence Irene Ford (Sept 3, 1861 - Oct 30, 1871), who died of yellow fever at the age of 10. This grave was constructed with a set of open concrete stairs that descend next to what would be the head of Florence’s body, with the headstone above. Learn more about this grave at GhostInMySuitcase.com. 8:05  Before leaving Natchez, we toured the Monmouth Mansion (built in 1818) and the beautiful gardens and small cemetery that surrounds it. Check out my Monmouth Mansion photo album on Flickr. 10:03  The Myrtles Plantation (built circa. 1796) in St. Francisville, LA — If you are as big of a paranerd as I am, you’ve probably seen the Ghost Hunters investigation of Myrtles from way back in 2005, episode 1 of their 2nd season. You’ve also probably seen the The Ghost Adventures crew investigate the place just last year in season 9, episode 2. 10:46  The lovely Miss Hester 11:33  Some audio with a little bit of the atmosphere of the haunted Myrtles Plantation. 12:25  The Myrtles Plantation Tour 14:15  Some of the legends of the Myrtles Plantation 16:18  The Haunted Mirror 17:01  The ghost of Chloe — Probably the biggest legend of the Myrtles. Chloe was supposedly the slave closest to the Woodruff family, who purchased the home in 1820 and remodeled it. Was she Mr. Woodruff’s mistress? Did she poison Mrs. Woodruff, along with Cornelia and James, two of the children? Was one of her ears cut off? And was she hung from a nearby tree? 19:03  The nursery, or the “Ruffin Stirling Room”, which is where we stayed for the night. The two children, Cornelia and James Woodruff, were apparently taken to this room, where they later died. 21:26  Kate, Cleo, Voodoo, and other deaths at the Myrtles. 21:47  More about the “terrifying” bed shaking experiences that have been reported in the nursery/Ruffin Stirling Room. 22:34  Before bed we tried to reach out to any of the spirits of the Myrtles by conducting an EVP, Spirit Box, and Ouija session in the nursery. 23:06  Who changed the track on my recorder while we were sleeping? 26:23  More audio of me touring the grounds of the Myrtles, including the pond and cabins around the back of the property. 28:26  View my Myrtles Plantation photo album on Flickr.  Our visit to Grace Cemetery and the Grace Episcopal Church in St. Francisville, LA. You can find the Grace Cemetery photo album on Flickr. 30:18  The beautiful and reportedly haunted Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA. It’s one of the more popular plantations. In fact, you’ve probably seen it in photos or even as the Hollywood backdrop of a movie or two. It was featured in Season 4, episode 19 of Ghost Hunters in 2008. The rows of 300 year old oak trees are breath taking. Check out my Oak Alley Plantation album on Flickr. 32:36  Heading to New Orleans and the overwhelming heaviness or anxiety that I was feeling. 33:45  Our stay at the Hotel St. Marie in the French Quarter, and its connection to American Horror Story: Coven. 34:25  Bourbon Street 35:15  Our spectacular dinner and experience at the Oceana Grill 35:30  Incense, sage, tarot cards, and my mom’s visit to the Voodoo shops (Marie Laveau’s House of Voodoo and Reverend Zombie’s House of Voodoo)! 35:43  Cafe Beignet for lunch 36:20  Dinner and my delicious Po’boy at the Vacherie Restaurant at the Hotel St. Marie. 36:32  On the way out the French Quarter, mom dropped me off at the Lalaurie Mansion. Hopefully you remember my interview with Victoria Cosner Love, who authored the book on Madame Delphine Lalaurie, the real life murderess portrayed in American Horror Story: Coven. If not, you can check out episode 7 of the podcast from August 6, 2014. 36:47  Metairie Cemetery in New Orleans. Those photos can be found in an album on Flickr. 37:35  What’s the opposite of the French Quarter in New Orleans? Long Beach, MS, which was the last leg of our trip. Long Beach is not far from Gulf Port, MS. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a few nights. 38:28  On our first night we had dinner at Shaggy’s right on the beach near Gulfport. 39:26  The White Cap Seafood Restaurant in Gulfport. 39:41  The Papa Johns delivery guy in Long Beach is a fellow podcast nerd! 39:49 

 

Shout Outs! Thanks, StevenXm and American Ghoul for your iTunes reviews, and Tracy for the spooctacular photo and the e-mail! 40:47  What’s coming up next week? 42:30  This week’s blooper — a visit from my four-legged son Meril, who was apparently very thirsty! 44:32

Dr. Linda Salvin is a 21-year radio host veteran and metaphysician. Dr. Linda was not born with psychic gifts. A series of devastating accidents transformed her life. With each of these experiences, her spiritual connection to the Universe and her psychic gifts began to grow.  Spiritual awakenings resulting from a plane crash, fire truck and another near-death experience with the white light, caused her to seek out ways to integrate her education and experiences to assist others on a new holistic and metaphysical path.

She has produced a TV infomercial on the Wicks of Wisdom™ which aired nationally on CableTV.  The show will be returning as Dr Linda is currently being branded for a new psychic and astrology network.  She will be heavily visible on radio and TV in the coming months.  Dr Linda is currently writing her memoirs on becoming the psychic healer that she is today as a result of the traumas that opened her up to God and the Universe to help us all.

She has been researching the use of the Ouija Board since 1973 by first-handedly using and perfecting her communication with varying consciousness and sentient beings via this tool with consistently amazing results!

Having a strong, spiritual connection to her spirit friends, as she has throughout her entire life, she teaches others within her books about the positive benefits of using the Ouija Board and other creative means as a pathway for expanding and deepening one’s world and expression within it in the most profound ways.

From working in the creative and humanistic field as a private practice art psychotherapist and then more recently as the CEO of a consulting and design firm in the high tech wireless industry, she found herself coming full circle within her career, from right brain to left brain to center brain. Karen strives to maintain a balance of her total brain within her heart.

She endeavors to help others deepen into their unique possibilities found only within their heart, so that they too may discover their own empowerment to affect personal growth, their spiritual evolution, and a passionate expression of their calling. Karen shares her developed processes for doing this within her books.

Learn How to Record EVP: The Session - The Big Séance Podcast: My Paranormal World #28

Feb 12, 2015 31:25

Description:

Call the show (775) 583-5563!

 

Are you fascinated by the EVP examples you hear on your favorite paranormal television shows? Have you ever wanted to learn just how to conduct an EVP session? Or maybe you’re already actively involved in an area of spirit communication, but you’d like to learn about someone else’s process and hear a new perspective on EVP. In this episode, I share the techniques that I’ve learned and use in my research on Electronic Voice Phenomena.

How to Record EVP: The Session

 

There are many many ways of recording for and capturing EVP. For decades, people all over the world have successfully recorded spirit voices in their own individual way. There are basic techniques and there are techniques that are rather complicated, some requiring more equipment and more explanation. There are also techniques that due to times changing and new technology, are just outdated. 

My experiences with EVP began as a paranormal investigator, but more recently it comes from research and conducting various experiments and seances, mostly in my home. 

I want to make it clear that my intention for this episode is to share how I typically go about recording for EVP during experiments in my own home, specifically. The process might be a bit different during a paranormal investigation, especially if you are investigating with a group.

And before I really get into my process, I have to give some credit to the following researchers/authors who have influenced me in recent years: the late Sarah Estep, one of America’s great EVP pioneers; Tom and Lisa Butler, directors of Association TransCommunication; and Randall Keller, a wise and experienced researcher who has been a great mentor. And he’s also a former guest of the podcast, from Episode #8 from August 14, 2014. A lot of what I know and the “how to” came directly from these folks in one way or another.

 

My technique for recording EVP

 

Determine your location/recording environment

Quiet and comfortable Avoid bad energy/pick a feel good place Be familiar with your surroundings (noises and sounds) Ideally, you will want to record when you are alone in the house or location Document the location and details of others in the house if you're not alone. Pick a time of day where the neighborhood (if that is an issue for you) is at its quietest.  Document specific equipment you’re using (if it’s out of the ordinary). Document anything you may be trying or changing as far as technique goes. Document anything odd in your surroundings for a session. 

 

Recorders and their placement

Use a digital audio recorder with USB capabilities I use the Sony ICD PX-820 and Sony ICD PX-720, and they’re nearly identical. They’re also old models, so don’t go looking for them on Amazon, unless you’re wanting a used one. I also use a nicer and techier Tascam DR-07 with an external Tascam microphone. In my opinion, it is important to use two recorders at the same time for sessions. These recorders should be different models or brands. This may help you to rule out questionable sounds that could be picked up or more easily explained in another recorder.  EVP are not often recorded in multiple recorders at one time. If I hear something or a voice out-of-place in one recorder, but not in the other, I’m more likely to believe it is truly paranormal and possibly an EVP. Place your recorders near you, probably on opposite sides of the room, but far enough away where you won’t hear your every breath. Using headphones or ear buds? Maybe. Maybe not. 

 

Advice for saving time and frustration later

Starting both recorders at the same time (or close to it) will be very helpful when comparing time stamps during analysis. Get in the habit of “tagging” while investigating or during an EVP session. 

 

Just before the session

Brief meditation or prayer. State intentions. I invite spirits/guides/loved ones to help in sending or inviting appropriate spirits to help with research and to learn about life on the other side. Sometimes before a session I’ll simply play relaxation or meditation music lightly in the background to help me chill out. Be in a good place or frame of mind when practicing any form of spirit communication.

 

The Actual EVP Session

Click record and allow for at least 30 seconds of silence. Re-state verbal request for protection/invitation  State the date and time Briefly describe the equipment used and where it is placed Document anything unusual in the environment Once again state intentions Begin by asking some basic identifying questions. Give 100% respect Don't interrogate. Don't assume you're smarter because you're alive. Don’t assume they want or need your help. Don’t assume they’re miserable. Don't assume they're “earthbound”, troubled, or in need of help. Do not jump to the conclusion that because you've captured an EVP, your home is haunted. Some very impressive and historic examples of spirit communication have come from spirits reporting to be communicating from a kind of station used for communicating from the other side. Further questions might be more specific, possibly relate to a specific spirit, or be no different than elements of a conversation you'd have with a living person. Allow plenty of time (20 to 30 seconds) in between questions. If you have a complicated or deep question in mind, consider breaking it up into smaller chunks.

 

If you experience activity during the session

I don’t always instigate it, but as you may know from a previous episode of the podcast, often I get spirits who like to let me know of their presence by knocks or “rapping”. I guess it’s just the best way for some spirits to communicate with me. When this happens, I roll with it, and I try to continue the communication through the rapping. In my opinion, this kind of communication is just as fascinating and noteworthy as EVP. Sometimes at the end of a session I’ll ask for some kind of validation through touch or the moving of an object. If you’re comfortable with it, why not ask? I know that when I get two or three loud knocks or raps when I ask for it, or if I ever capture a recorder being moved across the table, I’ll be way more likely to be confident about any EVP captured in that session. To hear examples from my sessions where I communicate with spirits through rapping and knocking, be sure to listen to Episode #6 from July 30, 2014

 

Before ending a session

Give any spirits present the opportunity to give feedback or suggestions to make the research, or the communication in general, more successful. Thank those present for their energy and presence and invite them to return for future sessions.

 

I think my sessions are longer than most people prefer. A typical session for me is 15 to 20 minutes. Just remember that depending on how thorough you are during the analysis of your audio recordings, it will take at the very least twice as long to listen and analyze as it took to record. Some of my more complicated and longer sessions can take a day or more to get through. And that’s just with one recorder. You get the picture. 

 

Other techniques and tools that you can combine with your EVP session

The use of background noise, such as "white" or "pink noise", or even taking advantage of explainable noises in the environment. Many believe, and some are convinced, that using background noise during EVP sessions may help entities to communicate. I will sometimes use a “spirit box” or any device that will help me practice the “radio sweep” method of capturing what is an example of “opportunistic EVP”. Avoid falling for pareidolia. One last tool that I tend to use now, won’t surprise most of you at all. But I will also spend some time in my session, often by myself, but sometimes with a partner, using the Ouija board. As of this date, after around 3 years of occasional use of the Ouija, I’ve yet to experience or capture movement on the board. With that being said, I have captured a possible EVP that I’ve shared with listeners in a past episode. This communication seems to say “Ouijee… board” after I asked “what am I touching” during a Ouija session. Pretty cool, if you ask me. That was in Episode #5 from July 23rd, 2014, and was my first interview with Karen A. Dahlman. 

 

So as you can see… there are so many things you can do with an EVP session. You can have a very basic session, or you can be very detailed, go crazy with it, and pretty much make a full-time study of it. But as I always say, as long as you’re being respectful and have good positive intentions, there’s nothing wrong with it. Just be smart and have fun. 

 

Perhaps in a future episode, I’ll get into how you can listen to and analyze your recordings, in search of those possible spirit voices.

In this episode: 

Angela's background, when she developed her abilities, and how she got started as a professional psychic. Her research and involvement in the study of precognition.  What is precognition? What is Remote Viewing? Are Angela's growth-year predictions different from the predictions she makes as a part of the precognition study? A look back at the predictions for 2015 that Angela made for The Big Séance Podcast's special predictions episode, #24.

Some of Angela’s predictions for 2015:

1. The US will be involved in a new war. Initially, words such as conflict and confrontation will be used to soften the realism of the situation. 

2. The US economy will suffer another recession as well as a depression.

3. Russia will directly threaten the US. 

4. Also, Russia will take on new territory by force, other than today’s Ukraine, that they have invaded. 

5. North Korea will push the envelope by attacking South Korea. 

6. North Korea will also lose its leader, Kim Jong-un. 

7. Lastly, the UK will lose a member of its royal family.

Angela explains her process and how predictions come to her.  How does she keep up with validating her predictions after they happen? Does she ever edit her predictions? Also, why Facebook is a great way to share predictions! Angela's predictions on the future of the events surrounding Ferguson and the St. Louis region. Angela shares several of her recent predictions that came true! How does she predict so many international events?

9 Tips to Keep the Paranormal Alive in Your Life Throughout the Winter - The Big Séance Podcast #25

Jan 8, 2015 25:51

Description:

Call the show (775) 583-5563!

 

Suffering from the winter blahs? Cabin fever starting to kick in? The winter tends to be a time when many paranerds out there, struggle to find enough paranormal activity or content to keep them happy. If you’re truly one of these nerds, the autumn/Halloween season just isn’t enough to keep you going for the rest of the year. For some, the days seem longer, even though they’re shorter, and maybe you're longing for fall once again… or at least spring. Well I’m here to get you out of that funk with 9 tips to keep the paranormal alive in your life throughout the winter.

 

Visit BigSeance.com for show notes.

 

In this episode:

Tip #1: Find a good book on a paranormal, spiritual, or metaphysical topic… or even just a good ghost story!   Here are 4 recent books that I’ve read and can recommend to you:  "Reunions: Visionary Encounters with Departed Loved Ones" - Raymond Moody "Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife" – Raymond Moody "The Spirit of Creativity: Embodying Your Soul’s Passion" - Karen A. Dahlman "Soul Sensing: How to Communicate With Your Dead Loved Ones" - Janice Carlson

I’m currently Reading "Soul-to-Soul Connections: Comforting Messages from the Spirit World", by future guest, Carole J. Obley. 

  If you’re looking for a more detailed list of book recommendations and reviews, you can check out my Recommended Reading page. I’m very often adding to and updating that list.      Tip #2: Plan and hold a séance with a small group of friends!    Tip #3: Consider reading a how-to book on something like channeling, meditating, Ouija, Tarot, Astral Travel, EVP, or another equally interesting topic.   By the way, I plan on producing a kind of “how-to EVP" episode sometime soon. I know quite a few people who have talked about giving it a try, or have expressed interest in learning how to go about it. And I know these folks would be great at it and get a lot out of it. So stay tuned. And maybe you could let me know if you’re one of those people. Get in touch with me.      Tip #4: Find a cozy place to stay for the weekend. It doesn’t even have to be haunted. It certainly helps if the place has some interesting history to it, or maybe it just looks haunted!   Probably just about every region has a few cute bed and breakfasts.  How about the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado?  You can find more stories, audio, and photos from our stay at the Stanley Hotel if you find my post titled Memories of the Stanley Hotel.  Or how about the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas? Or the famous Lemp Mansion here in St. Louis? I have quite a few pictures of the Lemp in a post titled The Lemp Mansion in St. Louis.    Tip #5: Watch an old black and white spooky movie… or two or three. And I have a few suggestions:   The Uninvited from 1944. The Innocents from 1961.    Listener Feedback!   A Big THANK YOU to some wonderful listeners who have written kind reviews in iTunes! Some exciting news and an update on a psychic development circle started by Marion, a medium and listener from the UK!    Tip #6: Start an interesting or vintage collection, perhaps one that causes you to dig into some history or genealogy.   My yearbook collection  Ms. Verna Marie Owen   Tip #7: Visit an old Cemetery with a camera (especially after a pretty snow!)    Perfectly Lonely and Snowy City of Souls - Return to Bellefontaine Cemetery, St. Louis   Tip #8: Start a Grave Adoption project.   If you listened to Episode #11 from September 4, 2014, I suggested that listeners consider starting a new fall tradition of adopting graves.  

 

Tip #9: Invite a paranormal investigation team into your home or a friend’s home and convince them to let you help investigate!

Carole J. Obley - A future guest of an upcoming episode of The Big Séance Podcast, Carole has been the bridge between heaven and earth in over 7,000 group and individual readings. It’s no surprise that she is fast becoming a sought-after medium, author, workshop leader and speaker given the startling clarity, specificity and accuracy with which she sees, hears and senses people’s loved ones in spirit. Names, descriptions of loved ones’ personalities and uncanny, validating details as well as grief support and teachings about the Afterlife are typically delivered in her readings. Heartfelt and compassionate in her approach, Carole is also well known for her practical, down-to-earth guidance and insight into life issues, such as relationships, career and finance.

Karen shares some predictions for the year 2015 that she received from one of her spirit friends known as “The Moon”, and she received these predictions from the Ouija board. 

Our last two contributions stand out, because they are channeled messages that are recorded as they’re happening. Both Lee Allen Howard and Marilyn Painter have been guests on the podcast, and I’m glad to have them back. 

Lee Allen Howard - He was with us on episode 12 from September 11, 2014. For more on Lee Allen Howard, visit building-the-bridge.com.  

Lee gives his 2015 psychic predictions, but also leaves us with the recording of him channeling a message that he received from a “watcher” that he talks about on building-the-bridge.com. He received this on November 24, 2014 during a channeling session. 

Marilyn Painter - She was my very first guest in episode 1. You can also hear her in episode 9 from August 20th, 2014. For more on Marilyn, visit ahtahsanctuary.com

Marilyn also shares a recording of her channeling the energies of 2015. 

I hope you enjoyed this episode, and I would absolutely LOVE to hear from you if you have any thoughts about any of the messages you heard today. I’m sure all of these folks would love to hear about any validation if you notice anything lining up as they predicted. I hope to hear from you!

Halloween Memories and Traditions with Special Guests - The Big Séance Podcast: My Paranormal World #19

Oct 29, 2014 47:08

Description:

Call the show (775) 583-5563!

 

Well it is finally here. It is the week of Halloween, and in this final Halloween episode, I invite several past guests to share their favorite Halloween memories and traditions! Hear contributions from Annie Wilder, Sara Wiseman, Lee Allen Howard, Karen A. Dahlman, Janice Carlson, Rob Gutro, and Jim Harold. 

 

Visit BigSeance.com for show notes.

 

 

In this episode:

A Halloween Housewarming in 1911

A special return visit from Meth Hazel

Returning from episode 2 of the Big Séance Podcast, our next guest, Annie Wilder has a cool story from a Halloween night a few years ago. Now you have to remember that she lives in a haunted house, and when she mentions “the sisters” and “Leon”, those are spirits that are known to reside with her in the home.

Sara Wiseman joined us on October 2, 2014. I really enjoyed that conversation. She may have the sweetest and most calming voice ever, but you might want to briefly turn the lights on for this recent memory.

My friend Lee Allen Howard was with us for the September 11, 2014 episode. He is a medium and metaphysician, but he’s also an author, and he writes some horrifying things. And from his memories, it kind of makes you understand just where it all came from.

Next up is Karen A. Dahlman, who has been on the show twice, July 23, and October 16, of 2014. I absolutely love her story, and as soon as you finish this episode, be sure to check out the show notes at BigSeance.com, because Karen was nice enough to send in a very special photo for all of us to enjoy after you hear the story.

Karen A. Dahlman (right) and friend, Halloween 1977

 

Medium and psychic, Janice Carlson, joined us on August 27, 2014. She’s really fun to talk to, and she joins us again now to share this thought-provoking memory of a childhood Halloween. She also wanted to share an article she wrote about Halloween. Once again, when you’re all finished listening today, be sure to check the show notes, because Janice wanted to share the black and white line drawing that she had an artist create for the article, of what the first procession of Halloween trick-or-treaters in Ireland must have looked like. Thank you, Janice. **Janice's drawing coming soon!**

On September 18, 2014, Rob Gutro joined us to talk about Pets and the Afterlife. Here’s a memory from Rob.  

If you’re a regular listener of the Big Seance Podcast, you know just how much respect I have for our final guest tonight, a man who has influenced me greatly! I was so very honored to have Jim Harold, of the Paranormal Podcast, join me back on Sept 25, 2014. I invited him to come back to share his thoughts on a favorite tradition on Halloween. If you’re a parent, you’ll relate to this one.

A special credit and "thank you" goes out to the incredibly talented Tim Prasil, for writing the really funny story for Meth Hazel’s appearance tonight. Thanks for playing along with us, and sharing your time and talent, Tim. You’ll actually be hearing from Tim, who is a writer, in a future episode of the podcast. You can learn more about him at timprasil.wordpress.com.

Topics discussed in this episode:

What's the Halloween season like in California vs. the Midwest?

We talk about our memories of trick-or-treating, and Karen will surprise you with the tale of her last time partaking in this fun tradition.

With perfect timing, Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, two of my favorite paranormal television shows, finally return. We review the most recent episodes and talk quite a bit about the ghost of the little girl on the Queen Mary.

My visit to A Death in the Family: Death and Mourning in the 19th Century at the Chatillon-DeMenil Mansion in St. Louis.

What's the lore about death and mirrors?

Are we disconnected with death in 2014? Death, the Spiritualist Movement and the 19th Century. Mary Todd Lincoln and séances at the White House.

Karen, a leading expert on the Ouija, tells us about some of the superstitions regarding the talking board.

Will Karen or I hold séances on Halloween?

Is it really true that during this time of year the veil is lifted between the living and the dead? Karen says yes, and she teaches us about The Law of Critical Mass in physics.

Remember the myth of tampered candy and razor blades in apples?

Divination games played on Halloween in the Victorian time period, including waiting for your future love by staring in a mirror (not creepy at all, right?), and the "dumb supper".

Spirit Communication with candles and flame. 

The number 13 and the story of the 13th floor. Myth?

Some facts and jokes about Pumpkins and Jack-o-Lanterns!

Halloween (The Jack O'Lantern Rag) by Arthur Manlowe (1911)

Karen tells us why she loves Owls, which are viewed as symbols of Halloween.

Bet you didn't know what the witch's broom symbolizes.

Avoid having bad luck on Halloween. Be careful! (Actually, these are myths.... supposedly.)

Are there ways to have GOOD luck on Halloween?

There’s lots of ways to have that kind of fun feeling all year.”  --Eva Halloween

For Renae Rude - The Paranormalist's post that inspired this tradition, visit Graveyards, churchyards and cemeteries: spending an afternoon with the dead

 

8 Tips to start your new Grave Adoption Tradition:

Know that you have the right to be in a cemetery to pay your respects, just be sensitive and respectful of others.  Choose a grave or head stone that is interesting to you, most likely older, and out of respect, one that doesn't already have signs of regular visitors, or family members paying respects. If you’re interested in the genealogy of this project, be sure to choose a head stone that still clearly displays a name and dates. Realize that the days will get shorter as you get deeper into the fall. Most cemeteries have times posted when the cemetery is closed, and it’s usually “dusk”. Bring meaningful gifts or flowers on each visit… but realize that you’re responsible for disposing of them later. Don’t be afraid to just talk casually, or even flat out describe your new tradition to your adopted soul. Take photos on each visit. Document the work you’re doing, if for nothing else, to inspire others. Have fun… don’t take it too seriously… and definitely don’t make it about MOURNING or being SAD.

My Favorite EVP and My Spirit Visitor, known as "My Rapper" - The Big Séance Podcast #6

Jul 30, 2014 32:55

Description:

In this special episode, I share my favorite EVP, as well as highlights and clips from what just may be communication from a spirit visitor that I call "My Rapper". 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
By the way, toward the end of this show, while I'm discussing the rapping knocks and taps from my spirit rapper, a "knock" is picked up in the audio in a very annoying place. I left it in the audio, and you'll understand what I mean if you catch it. Coincidence?  

Let me know what you thought about this episode. I'm considering an occasional show like this, between interviews and guest appearances.
