The Ghost Within: When We Create Our Own Entity

It was late at night, and I couldn’t sleep. I heard the crashing in my living room once again. My cats were alert, but they didn’t dare leave my bedroom to investigate. That’s how I knew what it was. Well, I didn’t know for sure what it was, but it scared me, and it wasn’t…

Black Eyed Children in Raleigh, NC?

I will start this by being very honest. My experience and knowledge of UFO’s does not go much past 1990’s SciFi channel specials and Unsolved Mysteries. So to get a jump-start, I asked Alex Matsuo, APS founder, for suggestions on research. Her response, Black Eyed Children and their connection to UFOs. Well crap. I’m already…

EMF Detectors measure naturally occurring Electro Magnetic Fields, why is this paranormal? So when I start researching the history…

Is One Coast More Haunted Than The Other?

We’re going to take a break from research and academic-y posts and I would like to share something with you that’s been on my mind. Since moving here to Raleigh, NC from San Diego, CA in June of 2013, I’ve been noticing that I experience much more paranormal activity on the east coast. My team…


Sleep Paralysis: Is It Paranormal?

Probably one of the most popular emails I receive involves the client being awakened for whatever reason, they’re not able to move or speak, they feel a weight on their chest, and they may feel a dark presence in the room.
