This event is coming up very fast. And so is Halloween!

One of the easiest ways to either freak yourself out or, prove to yourself that there might be something to an afterlife, is doing an EVP.
I’m not talking about doing this at your local city/town “haunted house”, I’m suggesting that you are going to do it at your OWN home.
The best way to get a good, clean EVP is either just by your self, or with one other partner. If you have a third person or more, you can risk muddying the waters. People sometimes breathe heavy, cough, clear their throats or mutter things under their breath. The really bad stuff is if they interrupt your questions or interject verbally when you are listening for something. Sometimes there are noises that come from other areas of the body that you don’t need. Hmmm.
When you are by yourself in your home, you only have to account for yourself and your own noises. If you do have a second person with you, make sure only one person is asking the questions. And DON’T WHISPER anything!! Golden rule.
The reason why you cannot whisper, is that the spirit population has trouble communicating vocally. Their speech does not come out clear and concise. It takes a lot of energy for them to mutter a couple of words, let alone a whole sentence. So their words come out a little breathy and whispery. You have to account for your words and their words so there has to be a distinct difference and if you whisper, it can get confused with theirs.
#1 – Make sure you are sitting comfortable in a part of your home that’s not overly noisy with the furnace or water pipes making sounds. Also, make sure there is no paper around you that will make crumpling noises from sitting on it or moving it. And….shut your phone off!!*
#2 – You are going to ask a series of questions with the voice recorder you have (*if you don’t have one, you can use your phone or iPod for this to record). Be very clear in your questions and leave at least 15-20 seconds between questions so they have a chance to answer you.
#3 – Questions to ask: Keep it simple.
Don’t call upon your dead relatives right now because you will have to ask them specific questions to make sure they are who you think they are. Some spirits will impersonate who you want to talk to and hijack the conversation. You’ll either get nothing nonsensical out of them or some nasty, stupid stuff.
Remember we are just doing a simple EVP experiment, not asking for Grandma to come through and give us her secret muffin recipe.
Now take your voice recorder or iPod or cell phone and download the sound file. Or just put a headphone jack in and listen to what you have. You might have to listen to it a number of times to figure exactly what they are saying. You might have absolutely nothing on the recording too. Spirits will talk when they want to talk. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t have anything on your first try.
I turned a recorder on one night when I was home alone and asked if anyone wanted to talk to me. When I played the recording back, I heard a strong clear female voice say “No.” Okay then.
Note: Another interesting piece of information about EVP’s – women are better at hearing something speaking on recordings because spirits speak at a higher sound frequency level. Children also hear the higher frequencies; better than adult women. That’s why quite a few can hear ‘things talking in the night’.
When people call us to come to their house to remove spirits and send them into the light, it’s because they have reached the frightened stage and whatever is present in their house is causing them a host of problems. From being SO SCARED that they can’t even be in the building; to causing them to: lose weight, get sick, fight with their family and affect them in different psychological ways. The spirits that are responsible for most of this are usually……..male. Not being sexist, but that is what they usually are.
I began to think that I was encountering mainly male spirits for all kinds of irrational reasonings. (yes of course, insert ghost hunter = rationality joke here) Then today, I found an article by Tara MacIsaac on the Epoch Times website. It talks about how ghosts/hauntings are most likely going to be males who have died a violent death. It is a very compelling article.
I can’t say for sure that all the earthbound male spirits I have encountered have had violent deaths, but they all had definite reasons why they didn’t want to cross over and the majority of them had lived a negative lifestyle that involved usually drugs, violence and for some, the sexual abuse of females.
They were either too scared to go to the light because of:
For some reason, women don’t have as many hang-ups with the “bad stuff” they have done when they were alive. They just seem to embrace the other side and go for it. You go, GIRLS!

A house in Sherwood Park, Alberta, had close to 25 people as renters in the span of 2 years. A man and woman were living in the house and they had doors opening and closing, the furnace would make banging noises until the husband would go down the stairs to the furnace and then mysteriously the banging would stop. Many personal objects would go missing.
I found a male spirit and he was very possessive of the house. I have no idea if he had ever really lived in the house or was just drawn to it after his death. I picked up the name Harold with short dark hair, white shirt, dress pants, and had a very serious disposition. He was looking at me with a large frown and his arms crossed. He had been doing all these naughty things to try and scare and mess up tenants mentally so they would want to move out of the house. I sent Harold into the light (he begrudgingly went without help) and I then went downstairs to a living area in the basement.
Immediately I saw a strange scene that was a forest out of an old fantasy-like English countryside with huge dark gnarled trees. I’ve never encountered anything like that before. It was like this was another dimension “draped” over the one we were in. There was a definite medieval feeling to it and when I explained to the home renters what I was seeing, they commented that the basement was the place that some previous renters were playing the Dungeons and Dragons game.
Can something like role-playing evoke an other-worldly dimension to appear? Or is it the energy from the adrenaline/passion of the game that can create an ethereal replica of what they are playing in??
