Team Members: Kellie, Mike, Kim, Ace, Carrie
Time: 8:00pm-11:00pm Weather: 80s overcast with rain
Paranormal Investigators use several different pieces of equipment to communicate with spirits. These devices give confirmation that a spirit is in a location or area since they light up or spike levels when energy is near it or when touched (giving higher spikes). To get answers, we do what we call a “session”. During a session, we ask spirits to turn on/light up/manipulate our equipment to reply to questions asked. Then to turn them off again by moving away. When the lights and/or sound turn on & off when we ask a question that is considered an “intelligent response”. This is not interference or caused by another electronic item. We do always check to be sure of this. When ghosts are seen or heard doing or saying the same things repeatedly but do not really ever see or interact with you, these are considered “residual hauntings”. It’s like a snapshot of a past event that was captured due to strong emotional energy. These we believe can be absorbed into items or places.
Many of the pieces of equipment below may have been used during our investigation:
K2 Meter: A device that may light up from green (lowest), to yellow, to orange to red (highest) when there is any change in the electromagnetic field (EMF). Spirits can manipulate it to light up when asked a question or turn it off when we ask.
Flashlight: A simple MagLite. Spirits can manipulate it to turn it on or off when requested. When the light turns on when we ask a question or off when we ask it to, that is an intelligent response.
Rempod A device that lights up and emits a beep or continuous alarm when spirits get very close or touch it.
Mel Meter : A device that indicates EMF levels and temperature changes.
Motion detector: Any of several available devices that lights up when something touches or comes very near it.
SLS Camera A hand or tripod held camera that can show a stick type figure on a display when there is a spirit near.
Digital Audio Recorder We use these to record the audio of an entire investigation. They are reviewed off site and many times capture an “EVP” (electronic voice phenomena), that we were unable to hear during the investigation. Spirits can speak to us with these.
Video Cameras: These are small cameras (we use between 1 & 6) set throughout the location that can record activity in a specific area. The video goes back to a set up display screen.
Spirit Box & Paranormal Apps (App) These devices scan through radio waves at a high rate of speed or use white noise. It is believed that spirits can manipulate them to communicate using words.
Ovilus: These can be a specific device or a phone app. They display or say words that spirits speak into them.
Dowsing Rods & Pendulums Handheld bent rods and a weighted item attached to a chain that allow spirits to cross them or swing in response to questions.
Estes Method: using at least 2 people. 1 person asks questions, the other person, while wearing headphones plugged into a Spirit Box, verbally repeats whatever words they hear from the box. They cannot hear the questions being asked.
We were contacted to conduct an investigation in a single bedroom apartment in Mishawaka, IN. that was reported to have some possible paranormal activity.
The current tenant/client was experiencing an apparition of a child that died tragically within 2 miles of the client's location. The client had seen the news reports and felt drawn to this child in an unexpected way. The client also stated they were being contacted by the "spirit of this child" in the form of an apparition and told us the spirit was using their cell phone to dial the number of the child's aunt. The client answered the phone, in days prior to our arrival, and spoke with the Aunt and confirmed to us it was indeed the child's aunt on the line. According to the client the child also was able to direct the client to the exact location and vehicle driven by the perpetrator responsible for her death.
In addition to the child spirit appearing, the client was also experiencing the occasional dark shadow in an 'open air' outside hallway. The shadow would rush the client the exact same way every time while growling loudly . We spoke with a neighbor who stated, "she personally" hadn't experienced anything out of the normal. We were also informed by the client that a person living in on of the apartments in her building had committed suicide a couple of years prior.
The client was experiencing paranormal activity in their unit including:
-light and TV disturbances
-spirit pulling at clients feet, clothing
The investigated location was a multi-family apartment building built in the late 70s.
DRCP arrived around 8:00 pm. We spoke with the client regarding the above activity they had witnessed. We did a quick walk through to get familiar with the layout.
After we set up our equipment in the front room, dining area and bedroom we began asking questions. We stayed centrally located so we could view the front room, kitchen as well as into the bedroom. The apartment was approximately 500 sq feet. We received very little activity throughout our investigation. We continued to question any spirits for answers and we weren't receiving any substantial evidence to indicate a haunting. At one time in the evening the client received an unknown call and stated it was the spirit child's aunt's number again but the call disconnected.
Upon going outside and having the client recount her story of the "rushing shadow man", we advised the client to completely ignore its presence if they see it after we leave. We attributed the shadow person to a possible land attachment and discouraged the client from providing even the slightest bit of reaction or energy to the spirit, preventing its strength from growing. With the location being privately owned by land management we weren't comfortable cleansing/sealing the property without permission. We did advise the client on how to self-protect when encountering malevolent spirits.
We did one last sweep inside. This time with the lights out. The UPOD in the bedroom was lighting up sporadically, as was the nearby lantern style K2 but none of the other equipment validated.
We went throughout the client's unit, smudging with an herbal protection mix and involved the client in the process. We strongly feel with the client being very open to energy and spirit that she may continue to encounter the paranormal. With proper care and self maintenance the client can use her energy to prevent these occurrences and learn how to deflect any negativity.
We’d like to thank the client for allowing us to visit their home. We enjoyed our time there. If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We wish you nothing but the best.
