Paraforce UK 2017 – Day Two

Return to Cressing Temple Barns

Well after what seemed like a particularly short nights sleep, we all returned to Cressing Temple Barns for the final day of Parafource UK 2017. Day 1 had been brilliant fun and I was curious to see what Day 2 had to offer.

IMG_3568

As ever I wondered in bleary eyed and headed for coffee on autopilot. Once I had acquired some caffeine I decided to talk to a few people that had also arrived. It wasn’t long though before I headed off to my talk of the day and what a beginning it would be.

However this morning had already began with a small disagreement between Kerry Greenaway and myself, a disagreement based on the classic Harry Price case regarding a talking Mongoose. As Kerry couldn’t understand why I would even entertain investigating such a case, I set her a simple challenge to ask as many paranormal types at  Paraforce UK as possible to see if they would too.

Oddly the first person that fell victim to this challenge was Joe Chin, who actually agreed with me stating that he too would investigate the case of a talking mongoose.

Barry Fitzgerald and the Influence

Barry began his talk explaining a little about where this idea had come from and then with the assistance of his powerpoint presentation, dropped some pretty hard hitting points on us. Making us aware of a few cases that he had reviewed where individuals had done themselves or others considerable harm, Barry simply asked why?

IMG_3543

The answer was quite straight forward in that each of these people had committed their atrocities because they had heard voices telling them to do so.

Fundamentally the concept that was being suggested here was that where we might think some thoughts are our own, it could be that those thoughts were being influenced by another source.

Barry went on to explain how certain biological aspects can actually be our very filter to for understanding these influences better, but in our modern fast paced lifestyle we may be masking these simple things. One of them being the very skin that houses what is us. However we often hinder the skins ability by consuming too much junk, too much refined sugar.

The lecture was quite fascinating and I really wish I had taken more notes, but it was one of those that I was so engrossed in that I actually forgot.

Before we left, Kerry decided to pin Barry down for a future ParaSearch interview on her radio show. Also, as a part of her on going challenge she asked him about the talking mongoose investigation. He of course recognised the famous Harry Price case and agreed that he to would investigate it. I think Kerry was beginning to realise that I had made my point and the next coffee was on her.

Tomo Warrington’s Room 666 with Jason Day

When Kerry and I returned to the Granary Room, Too Warrington had already began to talk with Jason Day. As we sat down they began what Tomo calls Room 666, which is his variation on the classic Room 101.

Oddly this was a great little idea as it quickly sparked some great paranormal debate.

Jason was keen to place reality ghost hunt TV shows into Room 666. This seemed to split the audience a little too, but perhaps for good reason. Personally I had to disagree on this one as although the TV shows aren’t always fantastically loaded with good science or investigation, they have their place. It’s these shows that for many have sparked an interest and have brought individuals to the field. Regardless of their inappropriate screaming sessions the TV shows have their place and did not make it to Room 666.

Next up from Jason was the misinformation around paranormal gadgets. Obviously adding the gadgets themselves was a no, but the misinformation itself I totally agree with  to be fair. The most annoying for me begin; ‘hey look I have a KII it detects ghost’! Seriously really!! I think a little education around paranormal gadgets is needed and perhaps its something I could add to my website?

Next up Too wanted to make some suggestions from he’s apparently ‘very long list’; he kicked things off with ghost hunt false advertising. For example, ghost hunting companies claiming their location to be the UK’s most haunted. I had to side with Tomo on this to be fair as its a slight pain, if you looked across the internet and social media, you may find tens of UK’s Most Haunted location or scariest experience. Although let’s be honest here, stating your location to be reasonably active or often paranormal stuff occurs, really doesn’t sell tickets.

Tomo also threw location exclusivity into the mix for Room 666. Again I had to agree on this one too. I don’t believe that any one group should have exclusive rights to a location stopping others or perhaps restricting others from using it. In order to properly research and investigate locations purported to be haunted, we need to allow as many different teams as possible to investigate. This doesn’t have to be continuously, but allow others to try different approaches. Different techniques, ideas, approaches are need to gain more out of the field.

This lead on to a brief discussion which many in the room got involved in, which was very nice to be able to chat about the paranormal, but equally amongst a group of people that equally respected each others opinions.

We actually ran out of time on this one.

John Blackburn Working with David

Once we had grabbed some lunch we headed back to the Granary (albeit a little late) to join John Blackburn and the group as they attempted to work with the picture of David.

As we entered the closed darkened room, apologising as the group had already started we quickly joined the circle that had formed connected to the copper edges of the painting.

IMG_1567

As he continued to work, John created a circle within a circle. Bearing in mind that John usually works in the dark, it was very difficult to build the energy up in this scenario where it was still very light.

After a while of trying this a few of the group did say that they thought the picture was slightly vibrating, which in itself is quite interesting.

The majority of the group left the Granary leaving a few of us behind for something a little different…

John, Gert, David and a Small Group

After the main group had left Gert decided that he wanted try some trance mediumship work with John and David.

During this session, Kerry and I decided to observe rather than take part.

Gert attempted to focus on the picture of David and channel his spirit through in order to hopefully pass some information across the John.

I found this quite a fascinating little session to be honest and it certainly seemed as if Gert walked away with an emotional experience from this.

What was also interesting is that both Kerry and I picked up on some things, which we later passed onto John and Maxine after everyone had left. John acknowledged this information too. Perhaps a little more on that in the future.

John Blackburn’s physical mediumship was one of the many things over the weekend that caught my eye and has now lead to a new line of enquiry for me. As John like me has an interest in the Scole Experiment then perhaps we may even work on something similar in the future.

Barry and Joe on the GHI Adventure

The last talk of the day was quite possibly one of the funniest talks of the weekend. To say these pair were a double act is really an understatement.

IMG_0414

Barry and Joe shared some of their fantastic experiences from their journey around the world with Ghost Hunters International and some of the trouble they got themselves into behind the scenes.

Whether it was Joe’s use of a sharpie that could have caused an International incident, Joe’s choice of attire, some particularly pothole ridden roads, discovering a possible secret room and so much more; the pair delivered an enjoyable talk.

It was also really great to see the guys so relaxed with everyone walking about the location, popping into a few other talks and generally talking with everyone too.

The relatively informal nature of Paraforce UK that allowed the guest speakers to interact with all those in attendance really helped make this weekend in my opinion. And this is something that I love about conventions I’ve been to and it helps build bridges and create friendships.

Paraforce UK 2017 Awards

Now before we all headed off home at the end of the weekend the Paraforce UK Team had one last thing for us all to enjoy. This came in the form of the Paraforce UK 2017 Awards, a truly red carpet affair.

The majority of these awards were voted for by most of those in attendance and in all honesty most were simply a great bit of fun.

You might have to check out the Paraforce UK 2017 Facebook page for the details of the winners, which were announced in true red carpet event stating the nominees too.

It was good to see Joe Chin win male pin up I think, lol!

Paranormal research and investigation can be really serious, but we can still have fun with what we do and with others in the field. There’s nothing like chilling out, having fun and a bit of a laugh too. Not to mention the odd drink!

Thanks to Paraforce UK

I would like to end this write up with a massive thanks to the Paraforce UK Team for an excellent weekend. Thank you to Viv and Sean for working tirelessly through the year to organise the event, great job guys. Thank you to all the Guest Speakers for presenting some really interesting talks and a few surprises too.

Thank you to everyone I met and spoke to, its great to make new friends in the field and progress all our personal journeys within the paranormal.

img_3334

These kind of events are helping to bring the community back together more, back to an older way of thinking, back to standing in front of someone and discussing the paranormal. It’s all too easy to sit behind a screen on social media, but face to face we can really move things forward. To all those that are trying to encourage more discussion face to face, keep doing it and thank you…

Paraforce UK 2017 – Day One

Welcome to Cressing Temple Barns

IMG_3568

Once I had doubled back and found the perfectly sign posted entrance to Cressing Temple Barns, much to the amusement of Parasearch Radio’s Kerry Greenaway, we parked up and headed in.

I had decided to give Kerry a lift to the convention because she was literally thirty minutes away and had never been to one before. Well I couldn’t have that, these paranormal conventions are essential events to help our community grow. Plus as Kerry gives a huge amount of her time to deliver many radio shows to the paranormal community each week, I figured it was an experience she shouldn’t miss and glad she didn’t. So, thank you Kerry for putting up with me all weekend. I should probably extend that thanks to Elizabeth Koert too, as she equally put up with me.

Right back to the convention!

Cressing Temple Barns is a fantastic location, not to mention beautiful. Cressing Temple is a place that is full of history, it was originally given to the Knights Templar back in the 1100’s. The site is home of three Grade I listed barns as well as a Tudor built walled garden.

The history of Cressing Temple and its Barns could easily fill a post all by itself and if you do wish to know more about the location please visit their website cressingbarns.co.uk

As we walked into the entrance foyer we greeted by the lovely Sian who quickly located our weekend passes and welcomed us to Paraforce UK 2017.

Looking through the list of talks over the two days it was clear that Viv and Sean had certainly worked hard to fill both days as much as possible. We grabbed a coffee and then it wasn’t long before we bumped into John Blackburn and Maxine Briggs. After briefly speaking to them both I was offered an early viewing of John’s strange painting of ‘David’ which I couldn’t pass up. Pretty sure my curiosity is going to get me into trouble one day!

Maxine escorted me across to the Granary to see the painting, which on this first unveiling was different from what I had expected. However still fascinating and as the day would continue I would begin to find out a little more about David and John’s story.

Viv and Sean’s Variation of the Ganzfield Experiment

As I was already in the Granary it made perfect sense to remain there for my first talk of the day. By this time I had already lost Kerry, but I think I had found my old mate Gert Brouwer another Paraforce Guest Speaker.

IMG_3535

After a brief intro from Sean and Viv they showed us some interesting footage of Sean using their variation on the Ganzfield Experiment. This particular approach utilises the use of white noise primarily, but also a couple of others too. In the example they presented a strobe light was used rather than a constant red light, with of course a half ping pong ball blindfold.

Their sensory altering setup was used to then place the individual in certain amount of deprivation to possibly allow them to gain access to similar information as mediums.

To give the audience a better idea of how this may work, the pair then asked for a volunteer to give it a go. In this case, if memory serves me well, Nige gave it a go and believed that he did see some kind of manifestation.

Next up Viv got John Blackburn to give it a try and as a medium John picked up considerably more, which was quite interesting.

This was certainly an interesting way to start a weekend of paranormal talks and I’m really glad that people are trying new things like this. Moving the field forward by trying new things is something we should all be looking at.

If you you would like to know more about the Ganzfield Experiment check out my outline in the Metetherial Encyclopaedia – The Ganzfeild Experiment.

 

Gert Brouwer’s Investigation Approach

Next up in the Granary was Gert Brouwer and as I was already there I decided to listen to my friend from the Netherlands.

Gert_Brouwer_2016

Gert told us a little abut how he approaches paranormal investigation, which is something I always find very interesting. If I understood correctly Gert approaches his investigations in what he called ’rounds’, where as he goes through certain aspects of the investigation in order to ascertain what was occurring.

This of course involves looking at things from both a psychical and investigative approach. Gert explained that as he works a case, he often continuously debunks aspects to rule them out and then may even revisit them too. This includes doing the research to find the facts to back up the paranormal claims.

After many years of talking with Gert online and discussing the paranormal at length with him, it was excellent to hear him speak, not to mention meeting him face to face.

 

Lunch with Two Ladies

I grabbed lunch in the restaurant with two lovely ladies, Kerry and Elizabeth. Nothing like some bacon and brie whilst chatting about the paranormal.

In regards to lunch, I would just like to say a huge thank you to Elizabeth Koert, you know why !

 

Michael Dee and an Unexpected Discussion

Hands up, I didn’t know an awful lot about Michael Dee before attending his talk, but this is exactly part of what I love about these paranormal conventions. Granted I was aware of some of the youtube work he has done, such as Merrick Alora and Scariest Places. However I had only seen snippets here and there.

IMG_3539

Michael (aka Michael David Roberts) began his talk by telling us all about his work and his latest production Morbid, photos of which were displayed in the background as he spoke.

The journey that Michael is currently travelling certainly seems to be an interesting one in all fairness as his passion for the work he has produced certainly was apparent as he spoke. Explaining how his chance meeting with Derrick Acorah to film a brief meeting with Merrick Alorah spring boarded the character and work. An event that has possibly lead to the Morbid production that he is currently working on.

However although Michael’s work is based around the paranormal, initially it was fictional. In order to do things from his own angle though he filmed as much of his stuff at actual haunted locations, which in time lead to some paranormal experiences of his own. Those experiences likely heightened his interest in the paranormal too.

What I really loved about this particular talk though was that Michael stood in front of us all and took the opportunity to ask some very interesting questions. Questions that may have answered some curiosities he may of had, but questions that sparked a little discussion. On this particular occasion I decided not to take part, but it was interesting to hear different members of the field present their ideas and beliefs.

All from a little question about the Stone Tape Theory which incidentally is a theory that often has me thinking – I mean, do buildings and places record the energy of events only to be played back like a video recording at a later date; or are these places just triggers for telepathic interaction. Food for thought and one of the great things about paranormal conventions.

I would also like to thank Michael for reminding me that it’s always a great idea to ask questions, especially when we still don’t have all the answers.

William Becker and Tree Spirits

I caught William’s talk almost by accident, but I am glad I did. I’ve never really spent much time researching things like tree spirits or elementals. So, my knowledge on them isn’t great I’m afraid.

That said it was an interesting talk on these strange spirits that William said had been witnessed in the mountain forestry in the states.

It reminded me of the accounts I have read of fairies over the years and I’m not talking Tinkerbell related here.

William was one of those over the weekend that I wish I had found more time to chat with. Apologies William.

John Blackburn and David

Next up was John Blackburn’s talk on his own journey and how he became connected with a probable spirit called ‘David’.

After explaining his initial experiences as a child, John told us how the painting of the Anguished Man came into his possession and with it a very interesting spiritual connection.

As John worked with the painting and ‘David’ the connection provided some very interesting instances of physical mediumship.

However after a while the owner of the Anguished Man decided to retain the painting removing it from John’s possession and stopping the work he was doing. At the time though this connection had become a friendship with emotional ties. Loosing the Anguished Man and David, upset John deeply. In fact he suffered from a period of mourning in a way. This isn’t uncommon and was also mentioned when the Scole Experiment finally came to an end.

However this wouldn’t be the end of John and David’s relationship it seemed. At a later date, I believe John came into the possession of a particular book. This was followed by a Ouija board session that John wasn’t involved in, but it appeared that David communicated and also gave the name of the book too. These events then sparked the attempt to create a new picture and attempt to transport David’s spirit from the Anguished Man to this new picture. Something which John said occurred very quickly.

This process is something John calls Karmic Transmigration.

Right at the end of the talk, John was talked into revealing the new picture to the audience. Oddly as the picture was revealed, an emotional wave appeared to hit Joe Chin, which lead to him taking some time outside.

IMG_1567

The picture in its new form certainly captured the audience and I do have to admit it does spark my interest too, I wonder where that will lead!

Hog Roast and a Bar

The evening segment of the weekend started with a Hog Roast and a Bar, which are two things which went down well. The Hog Roast was fantastic and the portions were very generous too. The bar was pretty good too, I’m guessing I wasn’t drinking! However the bar staff had banter, which is always good.

Actually jokes, bar and hog roast aside this was a great time for the guests and some guest speakers to gather and chat about their favourite subject; the paranormal.

I bumped into Tomo Warrington and was happy to meet another like minded individual. We spoke of the SPR, Ghost Club, concepts like telepathic interaction, what is a ghost and more. It’s always great to meet new like minded friends.

A Relaxed Ghost Hunt

Once the Hog Roast had been polished off, we headed off in various groups around the site to investigate several locations. It was good to have free time to roam around the site to investigate where we wanted to.

However it wasn’t long before Viv grabbed me and helped us to gain access to the main house so that we could check out the cella, which is always a great place to investigate.

The story is that the spirit of cavalier used to lock children down in the cellar. There were some areas where children could be locked, but on this occasion we didn’t get much. Although there were a few newts down there that I had to save, little blighters were sitting right where they would be trampled on.

Physical Mediumship with John Blackburn

A little later I joined a group on the ground floor for a little seance with a difference lead by John Blackburn. This was quite strange really as it was an interesting display of probable physical mediumship.

At one point as we all held hands John had two members raise their hands of the table, but they weren’t consciously doing this.

Next up Elizabeth found herself in the corner of the room being lifted by unseen hands, then she walked forward and made to pat another member of the group on the head. A very fascinating session that we then took to the cellar.

The cellar was a lot darker than our previous location and this was an equally interesting session. Some light anomalies were seen and individuals touched. Unfortunately I never experienced anything myself, but it was certainly an interesting session.

A Little Thanks

I would just like to say a huge thanks to Viv, Sean, the Paraforce Team and all the Guest Speakers for a great first day. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Paraforce UK 2017 – Guest Speaker John Blackburn

Who is John Blackburn?

As we are now less than two weeks away from Paraforce UK 2017 I thought I would talk with a few more of the Guest Speakers and find out a little more about them prior to the event.

john_blackburn026x675

Paranormal Investigator and Medium John Blackburn is one of the guest speakers at this years Paraforce UK 2017 paranormal convention. I thought I would ask him a few questions ahead of the event.

The Origins of John’s Paranormal Interest

I kicked things off by asking John about how his interest in the paranormal originated for him?

“It all started for me in 1971 when I was thirteen years of age living in Whitefield, Greater Manchester. One moonlit night I had the strangest experience that I would never forget… I was the youngest of four children; my brother Keith who was the eldest followed by my two sisters, Pam & Janice. We all lived in a house in Whitefield, my Mum was very unsettled there, she was never happy when my Dad had to work away from home due to a menacing recurring nightmare. She would often wake up screaming to the vision of a coffin lid being placed over the top of her whilst she lay in bed.

On one particular night my brother & sisters were invited to a party at their friend’s house, I of course had to stay at home as it wasn’t cool to have your thirteen year old brother in tow. Unfortunately for my Mum, Dad was working away. My brother Keith & I shared the same bedroom, we had bunk beds which were made into single beds, Keith’s was under the bedroom window & my bed was against the wall opposite the bedroom door. My Mum asked me if she could sleep in Keith’s bed that night to which I agreed.

I was in a deep sleep, to be awakened by my arm being poked three times… “Mum… leave me alone” I mumbled. Next there was a tap on my shoulder… I turned round & standing just two feet away from me was a young boy who was about the same age as me staring at me through lifeless eyes. I know it sounds strange but I turned round & went back to sleep again. The next day when I came down stairs for breakfast, my Mum asked me if I had seen anything last night, the image of my spooky visitor came back to me in a flash… “I couldn’t sleep last night, the rays from the moonlight illuminated the room and I could see a green mist swirling next to your bed” my Mum said.”

Fascinated by the fact that John appears to combine his psychical abilities alongside the logic of an investigator; I wanted to know a little more. It also occurred to me that perhaps on occasion the two sides may come into conflict and which side dominates in these scenarios.

“When I am working I never rule out what occurs on the night could be natural and not supernatural.  One thing that I strongly believe is that you are only cheating yourself if you don’t look at what could be a natural occurrence.  I have seen and experienced many amazing things whilst investigating the paranormal which I couldn’t explain and I cherish every moment and feelings I have experienced.”

The Success of Mysteria Paranormal

John’s paranormal company Mysteria Paranormal done really well and even received an award. I decided to ask what John thought attributed to his success or indeed any events company in the paranormal field.

“The simple answer to that is passion, never be money motivated. Once you are money motivated you lose the true value of why we investigate the paranormal.  Always keep people interested, one golden rule for me is never keep people sat in the dark doing nothing and when it gets quiet like all locations can be at some point you work harder.  People go on the events to have an experience and I work hard to give them the experience they expect to have and if they go home happy, I’m happy.  I am always very self critical and I am not happy if I feel I could of done better. I never look at what other people are doing; the only thing I do look at is cost so I can give good value for money.  I have never been in it for money, however what some don’t understand sometimes is that cost of locations, public liability insure and equipment are not cheap therefore you need to make a profit to keep running.”

Paranormal Tech

I decided to ask John about his opinion on the various pieces of paranormal tech currently available in the field.

“To be truthful too many people rely on them and people on the events get bored with them after a while.  I remember years ago when I used to work as a host for a well known paranormal company they used to like to give people equipment to carry round with them during the investigation. People would only use them for a short while and then at the end of the night we would spend a while looking for the equipment that some people left in the building because they got bored using them and carrying them around.  You can’t beat your own senses to know when spirit is around.  I always remember two ladies came to one of my events to check out the way I worked and one of the ladies said to me how do I know spirit is around if I don’t use a K2 meter.  That’s the main problem too many people rely on them and quite a lot of time they can give a false reading.  I have worked hard over the years in development and meduimship circles and in my opinion you will have a better experience using your natural senses and working with our energy.”

The Enigma Experiment

One of the latest projects that John is working on is the Enigma Experiments. These appear to be based on variations of psychical research areas and other experiments such as the famous Scole Experiment. However I wanted to to ask John about the concept behind the Enigma Experiments and what his end goal from them was.

“The concept is primarily based on the use of energy.  My belief is that to get success in the field study of the paranormal we need to learn and focus on manipulating spiritual energy.  At the end of the day we have to work in harmony with the spiritual world, by respect and keep them interested in the communication.  I feel we have achieved this by means of various experiments we have created which we use on the events. The end goal is the success of the Pentimento Experiment and bringing my friend/spirit guide David home closer to me and my friends on the Enigma Experiment who have all been touched by David.  David is an amazing spirit person who we all have utmost respect for. He has story to share, it’s a journey we are all focused on and we will help David achieve this goal.  Although the website and facebook groups are called “Enigma Paranormal Events” we are still really the “Enigma Experiment” which on the events is comprised of the following experiments.”

Spirit Conduction Rope Experiment

The experiment is based on the manipulation of spirit energy by encouraging spirit contact with the aid of the “Spirit Conduction Rope.” One of the most popular and most talked about experiments, exciting, totally unique and unlike anything that you have experienced before.

The Prana Experiment  

Prana is the Sanskrit word for “life force” and associated with Brahman, a spiritual concept in Hinduism. It is the pervasive, genderless, infinite, eternal truth which does not change, yet is the cause of all changes. Brahman is everywhere and inside each living being and there is a connected spiritual oneness in all existence, it’s a key concept found in The Vedas, a large body of texts. Hindus consider The Vedas to be apauruseya “Not of Man.” Can a strong energy force connect to spirit on a higher consciousness and intelligent level?

The Zener Experiment

Is based on perceptual psychologist Dr Karl Zener’s experiment to test extra sensory perception (ESP) by the use of Zener cards, 25 in a pack made up of five symbols.  In a test of ESP. The experimenter picks up a card and records the answer of the person being tested for ESP more than three symbols answered correctly proves that the person being tested has a gift. The Enigma Experiment version is very similar, but with a frightening twist!

Mail Attachment

Harbinger Experiment

Energy that foreshadows an omen or sign with the use of a translucent ball or other material with the belief that things can be seen. Spiritual visions coming from one’s subconscious mind. Though in the past believed to have come from gods, spirits and the devil. To gain insight into a question or situation by the ritual of scrying to communicate with spirit.

Kelpie Experiment

A shape shifter able to adopt human form and communicate with the living.  A type of ghost or supernatural being supposedly responsible for psychical disturbances such as loud noises and objects being moved or destroyed. This experiment is not for the faint hearted or of a nervous disposition an experiment closely linked to the black monk of Pontefract.  Can poltergeist activity be manifested by spirit communication?

The Mercurius Experiment

Mercurius a keeper of the boundaries a guide to the souls of the underworld.   Associated with messages of communication including various forms of divination.  A bridge between the upper and lower worlds of spirit communication.  This experiment uses both male and female energy but predominantly female energy as this is more susceptible and open.  Can female energy connect and communicate stronger with spirit?

The Pentimento Experiment

A completely unique experiment, one that will be mind-blowing.  Can the part of a human being associated with the mind, will and feelings achieve karmic Transmigration?

Probable Results from the Enigma Experiments

With a firm interest in some of these fascinating approaches I asked if the experiments had provided any particularly interesting results since they began. I was of course as ever wondering about the data too.

“We have had some amazing results which stems back from when I used to do the Anguish Man Live Experiment.  Being one of the guest speakers I have got some footage I will be showing on the Paraforce weekend which has never been seen before and hopefully if the conditions are right a live demonstration.”

Never before seen footage and a possible live demonstration, which shouldn’t be missed for sure. As I have a bit of an interest in the experiment I will have to make sure I catch that.
