I recently published part of a report I wrote for the Society of Psychical Research called ‘After Death Communications From Parents’ which looked at the two experiences of a gentleman following the loss of each of his parents; over a decade apart. This particular post has received some good attention since it was published and as such I wanted to follow up a little on After Death Communications (or ADC’s) as they do not appear to receive that much discussion specifically within the ghost hunter community these days.
The paranormal is a strange one, but are we really giving it enough thought or are we just chasing experiences?
Does Hempel’s Paradox apply to the paranormal? Are all ghosts evidence of an afterlife or is there more to it than that?
The case you are about to read is one that I was fortunate enough to capture for the Spontaneous Cases Committee of the Society for Psychical Research last year. Cases like this one and many others drop into the Spontaneous Cases Committee inbox on an almost daily basis. They review and respond to the cases where they can, with an aim to document them for the SPR records.
Whilst many stories of Supernatural Creatures may date back hundreds of years with their origins sat firmly in historical lore, the story of the Cornish Owlman is a little more modern.
In 1926 the Cornish Echo reported a story about two boys being chased by a large and scary bird. The boys escaped to tell their story and that may have been the end of it, but it was to be the first of many sightings.
I recently investigated an undisclosed location with Insightful Paranormal Investigations, here’s my account of what happened that night…
Over all the years that I have been researching and investigating the paranormal, I think one type of phenomenon still captures the attention of ghost hunters more so than others; and that is the strange activity that occurs as a part of a poltergeist infestation. As it is one that can bring with it a unique grouping of spontaneous activity that provides the investigator with the opportunity to experience and document various types of activity at one location across a short space of time.
Detectives have sometimes requested the assistance of psychic Mediums with the investigation of criminal cases, but is that right ?
