I'm not sure I believe in ghost but I know there is something out there.

I belong to a paranormal investigative team and have had many strange things happen. We started our team long before they became popular on TV.

My team is made up of.

A researcher.

A recorder (my daughter)

A tech specalist.

And a least 2 investigators.

97% of the "hauntings" we investigate can be explained with a scientific answer. It's the other 3% that keep us going back.

I recieved a call to investigate a house in Clay WV. The owner said some strange things were happening.

Unlike those TV guys, We never ask about the "haunting" before we go in.
We feel going in without any info keeps our minds clear and we have no predetermined expectations.

Investigation night.

We arrived at the house just before dark. 8:45 PM The owners turned over the house and left. With the house empty we entered. I chose a few places to place our equipment and then we entered a bedroom and started unpacking our things. I turned on an EMF meter and placed it on the bed behind me. A fellow investigator (my cousin) stayed with me as the rest of the team returned to the truck to get the rest of our gear.
Suddenly it felt as if someone had entered the room. An unknown energy past through my body, It was so weird, I felt it was a younger woman and that she was searching for something and then she was gone. My cousin said “holly crap” seconds later as the EMF meter violently pegged out, so forcefully it damaged the meter. The rest of the team returned and we placed our equipment throughout the house. Remote cameras, motion sensors and digital recorders.

9:45PM As we moved through the house we detected several unusual EMF readings. I called our Tech guy in the truck and asked the power be turned off to the home.

10:00PM With the power off we still recorded several unusual reading.

10:45PM We started a EVP session (Electronic voice phenomena) I introduced myself as (David) and asked several questions as my cousin recorded everything with a digital recorder. I asked if there was a spirit in the house and if I could help them in some way.

12:10AM I again was overcome with a strange energy. I said “Mark” I do this so my daughter can mark her journal with the time and location and make notes, we can then review our equipment later to see if anything happened at that time.

2:00AM With nothing else happening we rapped up and headed home.

The analysis.

Other than a few strange EMF readings nothing was caught on camera or the recordings. We determined it was nothing more than possible electrical interference from nearby power lines. However I could not explain the strange feeling I first got in the bedroom.

A few days later the home owner brought her MP3 player to my house and asked me to listen to a few songs she downloaded the day before.
During one song you could plainly hear a females voice in the background asking for “David” in an urgent voice. She then asked for “Mark” in the same frantic voice. Then came “help me” in a somewhat muffled voice. Was a spirit asking for me to help her? Did she confuse my saying “Mark” for the journal as a name?
The home owner could not possibly know about “Mark” to fake the recording.

Later my researcher called with her finding.

Nobody had died in the house. The house was built only a few years ago.
However…….the original house located on that lot had burned in the 1960s and a young woman was killed when she went back into the burning house searching for her missing child. She had gotten one child out but she didn’t know a neighbor had rescued the other child from the back of the home.

My daughter came up with an idea. We tracked down the child “grown now” and asked for a photo of him. We took the photo to the home and placed it in the bedroom where I had felt the energy, explaining that the child had been rescued and was alive and well.

To this day no more paranormal activity has been reported from this location.

Did we help a spirit cross over?

Or was it only a coincidence?

For me, this falls into the 3% I mentioned earlier.

Did we see a ghost? NO
Did we hear a ghost………….maybe?

It's possible that our investigation only put an end to the home owners overactive imagination.
But the whole thing was a bit strange to say the least.

What do you guys thing?

Woah!! Thats some freeky shit. Of course if the home owner was hell bent on winding you guys up he could have just hidden a battery operated recorder somewhere then dubbed it over some music....

Do "ghosts" really haunt ITunes?

I come from a very spiritual family, my nan is a gypsy so she believes in everything. I get the 6th sense from her.

Anyway, I've always seen the afterlife. I remember when I was 7 my mother left me with the babysitter, we was having fun dancing about. She went to the toilet, I just remember glancing in my mums room (she had built in wardrobes) and seeing this little boy sitting in there. It shit the life out of me, I ran to the babysitter and demanded her she took me to her house. She did, I didn't wanna go home.

I always remember not wanting to sleep in my room, always get that feeling like someone is watching me.

After that, nothing much happened. Untill 2004, it all come back.

This women used to visit me everynight, stand over my bed and watch me. I used to have to sleep with the cover right over my head. She used to watch me through the gap of the door too. I never worked out why she came, untill it got so bad I had to go to the local church and ask for a blessing for my house.

So this priest and this other women (she was portugese) they came over. It was almost like being in a horror movie. They went in my room with the bible and they picked up and old jewelry box and asked me where I got it from. I told them my nan gave me it, they said that I should get rid of it as it is attracting bad things. They blessed the box, they went to the corner of the room and said "this is where she is" I was surprised because it was true, and old cupboard used to the there but its knocked out now. They blessed my whole room in latin, we all stood there and prayed in latin. It was unreal. They both said there was something there, they didn't need to tell me.. I already knew. After that they went into my mothers room to bless there.. and the priest asked "are you being sexually abussed" my mother went nuts and said "no she isn't" but my brain went "BING" my cousin . About four days later my mother got a phone call from her sister saying her friend was sexually abusing her daughter. Everyone was so fucking shocked it was unreal, I knew she was being abbused.. I met the guy and just knew what he was doing.. I tried to tell my auntie but she wouldn't believe me. I worked out it was my nan who passed away that was trying to tell me about it. When it all come out, it just felt so weird. All the nightmares and seeing this dead women.... everynight for months all had a reason. My dead nan was trying to warn us through me.

Nothing has happened so far, I hope it don't. I couldn't go through all that again. It was the most unreal experience for me, everyone thought I was a nutter. But it all came out in the end.

Sometimes when we talk about bad things in the family, something happens. Like at christmas we was discussing something and the lights on the window fell down. We instantly said "thats nan again" .

The priest told me not to read tarrot cards or horoscopes as they are the devils things and they let bad things in.

When something like that happens to you, you have to believe it.

We hope to start a website this summer and post some of our stuff.

We have a few EVPs that will curl your hair.

On one investigation we were doing an EVP session at the location of a hanging that took place in the early 1800s and when asked "what were you hung for?" you can here a spooky whisper say "Horse thief" very clearly.

On another a voice says "I died.......but I'm still here"

I don't know if it's ghosts but I can't explain where the voices came from.

I have had this happen with an Uncle that died when I was very young, I truely believe he comes to warm me of things. The first time I saw him I didn't know who he was. I was racing a motorcycle as a teen and saw this man and was over come with the feeling of impending doom. I quit the race and a few weeks later I was at my Grandmothers house looking at old photos when she turned the page in the book there was the man I saw. When I asked about him she told me it was my Uncle and that he was killed in a motorcycle wreck when I was a baby.

The scariest EVP I've ever heard was taken somewhere where exorcisms had occurred in the past. It clearly said, "I have the body of a pig"
