PARANORMAL REALMS RESEARCH AND INVESTIGATIONS
Hello to Everyone *S*
We had another very good meeting. We welcomed our newest member, Josh Brown. Josh brings to our group a science background and being a skeptic by nature, he will help us differentiate the natural causations or explanations from the supernatural. WELCOME JOSH!
We had some great presentations and discussions going today.
A. Dax presented the data he found on Columcille Megalith Park. The Park was fashioned after the sacred Isle of Iona in Scotland. An interesting fact is that some of the large stones used at Columcille were formed during the Wisconsin glacier period and are quite old. If energy is indeed stored in rocks, I wonder what secrets they hold from times past. Dax also told us about the strange temperatures for which there is no explanation that Iona is displaying as compared to other adjacent, geographic areas.
APRIL INVESTIGATION COMING UP!: We will be doing an investigation of Columcille somewhere in mid to late April when the snow melts from the ground. Handouts for Columcille were given out with details of what we will be searching for when we do our investigation and in what stonework we will be conducting an EVP session. More information will be sent out on this investigation at a future date.
Dax’s report on scrying will be given at the next meeting, and we are all looking forward to hearing how to make a scrying mirror and the proper way to use one.
The Old Candle Shoppe might result in a possible investigation along with an investigation of the gravesite/s of those historically related to the activities that happen at the Shoppe. More on this from Dax at the next meeting. Great work Dax on all of these searches!….THANKS!
B. Deb had a commitment today, but, she did send me the information to present that she researched on: The Inn at Buck Hill Falls and Fort Mifflin. The 3rd site ( tunnels under Moravian College) yielded very little information, and if she discovers anything more about the tunnels, she will let us know.
The Inn appears at this point to be owned by Falls Road Funding and is up for sale. Historically, it was built in 1901 by Quakers and grew to 270 plus rooms. According to some data, it met its demise because of its growing reputation for being haunted and strange death circumstances. Some 73 people have died there. Five of those deaths have occurred in Room 354 alone. Considering how this Inn met its supposed demise, I feel it is unlikely the owners would grant permission for us to investigate. But, until we find out more information, we will keep this on the back burner.
Regarding Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia: During the American Revolution, it held up under heavy bombardment, long enough to prevent the British from reaching and possibly capturing General Washington. The strange happenings include a Screaming Woman (thought to be Elizabeth Pratt who hanged herself in the Officer’s Quarters, the scent of wood fires, the aroma of bread baking, disembodied voices, and a military man who likes to socialize in the Powder Magazine area…and much more. We will continue pursuing this as a possible investigation site..more to follow. THANKS, Deb!..good workups!
C. My topic was the Old Jail in Jim Thorpe. It was the site of the hangings of 4 Molly Maguires (the Irish Catholics who came to America, found jobs working in the mines, were said to have murdered some mine bosses and brought to trial). The group felt an evening visit (2 hours for $250) was a bit pricey.
JUNE INVESTIGATION COMING UP! We will be visiting the Old Jail in June on a regular tour. Most the photographic anomalies in the books that the Old Jail sells didn’t come from investigations, but were sent in to the owners of the Old Jail by regular people simply doing a tour.
D. I also did a review of 2 kits that can be used for Cleansing/Ridding a House/Person of Negativity: The first kit for Smudging, was used by Native Americans. It involves the practice of burning sacred herbs and plants to rid a space or person of negative entities or residual emotions, and the second kit I showed is the same premise but using things liked blessed water. Three handouts were given: one for a Protective Blessing (Carl Johnson-TAPS), the second a Prayer to St. Michael, and the third, the Catholic Passages for Exorcism.
E. Dawn and Arlene went over some interesting information on ley lines and how they are tied to astronomy and religion. Many megalithic formations have some basic tie-in to religious beliefs and to our planets. Very good stuff!..Thanks Dawn and Arlene!*S*
1. Jim will try and see if he can locate a map of geological, fault lines. From a research standpoint, this can help us hone in on electromagnetic fields.
2. Josh volunteered to research scientific data for us as subjects arise.
3. Dawn will try and locate a photo that she took-possibly a paranormal anomaly…and she will post it to our Forum Board, so that everyone can comment and give their opinions.
4. Arlene mentioned a website for ley lines and will be sending me the URL for it. When I get it, I will forward it on to all of you. She also mentioned the Lake House as a site that could be very interesting for an investigation. She will give us more information on this at the next meeting.
5. Remember, you can post your EVP’s and photos to the Forum Board, so that we all can participate and share in evaluation and ideas about these things.
6. Deb-can you get together an alphabetical Glossary relating to megaliths such as cairn, dolmen, etc. so that we have a better handle of what to call a stone when we visit Columcille.
G. Encourage people to view the PRRI Website and to Register to PRRI’s Forum Board.
The PRRI Website URL is: sites.google.com/site/paranormalrealmsri/
The PRRI Forum Board link is on the cover of the Website, but, I will also list it here for you: serenrhapsody.proboards.com/index.cgi?
H. If you have any questions, get on the tele and give me a call!… Thanks again to all of you for your hard work!
