Another week in lockdown here in the UK and another week full of online paranormal content for us all to consume. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
As each week goes by I often find myself stumbling across various news, social media posts, blogs, articles, books, and more in relation to the paranormal. Often some of these pass me by never to be seen again, which can be a shame as when I see them I know that I want to read more on them. However, it can often be the wrong time, there are other more pressing things to take care of. As we are often bombarded by lots of this such information on a daily basis, a lot is lost in the digital ether.
So, what I wanted to do with this regular post is attempt to gather some various pieces of information that others like me may be interested to read. I’ve broken this down into a few categories below for now, hopefully you’ll like it – would love to hear your thoughts on the matter?
This week saw the SPR mention that they were looking to bring webinars in the future. This is a great addition from the SPR, because it should mean that there will be some excellent content made accessible to many of its members that are often unable to travel into central London for the regular lectures and Study Days.
Here is a few of the items that caught my eye this week on social media.
- When Lord Carnavaron died in april 1923 from complications of a mosquito bite, it was reported in the press author Marie #Corelli had warned him about not to disturb the tomb of the Pharao. And that her book Ziska (1897) had prophesied the inside of Tut’s tomb correctly! https://twitter.com/drpathistorian/status/1266960903796293633?s=12

This section is somewhere I would like to share a few of the events, investigations, conventions and more that may interest you all. However, due to our current lockdown situation – I have now included online events.
- The Paranormal Sanctuary 👻 Wed 3rd June – 7pm | FB Live https://twitter.com/hdghost_girl/status/1266619201822830592?s=12
I often spend a lot of my time reading paranormal related blogs, books and articles. So, I figured this would be great to share with you all too. Blogs and online articles are often a great way to discover more on the paranormal and even challenge your own perception of some concepts. There will also likely be items from published journals and magazines too in the future – which of course will be limited to those with memberships to those organisations.

Although generally the idea of this post was to share some of what catches my eye in the paranormal field week to week. I thought it would be good to capture some of this stuff in one place. Makes it easier to find right?
However, there’s always going to be stuff I miss, so please feel free to send me items and I may include them too. It’s a good way to share a lot of what’s happening out there in the paranormal world.
