Have a safe and fun holiday from the Paranormal Explorers!!
So, I’m sitting in the living room, listening to dead people singing Christmas songs written by dead people. Not being flippant or negative, but if you stop to think, the majority of Christmas songs are from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and the people who wrote them are dead. Bing Crosby and a lot of other crooners are dead.
Our ancestors sat around a fire and listened to stories and people singing stuff that dead people had written also. Okay, not too sure about my segue way into this.
The Winter Solstice is a time to remember our loved ones who are with us and those who have passed. Those who cannot light the Yule Log, have a bonfire in the backyard, or a fire in the hearth; can light a candle and ask the Universe for an abundant 2016 and for Spring to come sooner than later.
Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice:
(North America, Central America, Europe, Asia, Northern Africa)
December Solstice 2015: December 22, at 04:48 UTC.
Create your own traditions and rituals with the Winter Solstice. Ones that will help you get through the dark, cold winter and take you away from the commercial Christmas buying and pressure. Start with a candle or a drum and photos of family present and past. Honour your dead with memories and stories. This is the time of year that our relatives who have passed on and crossed over will come and visit and watch us enjoy the holiday celebrations.
Take note that in these celebrations, when you are taking pictures with your cell phone or a camera; to consciously ask your loved ones who have passed, to be in the pictures with everyone. And double check your photos to see if you have a glowing orb or two, or some mist-like stuff in the pics. You might even be lucky enough to get part of a figure or head. (e-mail us the pic if you do-we’d love to put it up on here!!!!)
Help a needy family, donate to a deserving charity, feed some animals in your neighbourhood. And have a wonderful Yule/Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa – everything!
Ben and I went to an Edmonton, Alberta townhouse in December of 2009 where 2 young women lived. They were experiencing things falling in the shower while they were in it. Like someone was pushing the shampoo and soap into the bathtub. The garbage can fell over by itself, sounds of some type of furniture being dragged across the floor upstairs, electric crackling sounds, and “something” ate a piece out of a roast chicken one night.
A lot of times people will tell us they can hear a crackling sound like electricity running. Almost like unbridled spirit energy. The women knew something was upstairs and that they were being watched all the time. Whatever was there, they wanted it gone.
I went upstairs where the bathroom and bedrooms were. A young male spirit appeared, very nervous, about 16-17 years old. He said his name was Robert and he was dressed in farm work clothes that looked like they were from the 1910-20’s. He told me “My ma would take the switch to me if she knew what I’d been doing.” He was referring to watching the ladies in the bathroom, and their bedrooms. He had never had a girlfriend or any experience seeing women naked. So he was enjoying himself immensely. I was picking up that he had caught a bad strain of the flu and died from it. Maybe the Spanish flu from 1918.
He was the one spilling items into the bathtub. I assumed he also had knocked over the garbage can and taken a piece of chicken. He told me he did not do those things. Now I’m wondering if there is another spirit I haven’t picked up on yet.
I told him he needed to go into the light and be with his family, explaining they won’t be angry at you for doing those things. He smiled, nodded his head, and walked off into the light.
I stayed sitting on the rug in the hallway and picked up energy signals from a bedroom in front of me that was dark and empty of furniture. Just then, a picture emerged of a 10 foot boa constrictor that was on the floor of the darkened bedroom. Oh Yeah!!!!
I realised that this creature was probably the one that knocked over the garbage can and took a chunk out of the roast chicken. Communications of course were very limited with the snake and I asked for help to get it into the light. An ethereal being came out and carried the boa constrictor into the light. Good thing, who the hell else was going to get it out?????
I went downstairs to tell the women what I found in their townhouse but before I told them, I asked if they had ever heard anything slithering through their vent system. They looked at each other with a surprised expression and said they had heard noises in the vents at odd times when it wasn’t the heat. I explained the young man and the snake and said the snake was probably all over the townhouse but they would never have seen it. The dragging noise upstairs was probably from the snake too, bumping into furniture and moving it around. Thankfully they were both gone so there was nothing to be afraid of.
I don’t know where the boa constrictor ever came from; maybe someone in the neighbourhood had one in the past. That was my first ghost snake. What next? A dinosaur maybe. Hmmm.
Ben, Paranormal Rona, and a group of friends and family, were taste testing beers one night (Canadian, eh?) at Alley Kat Brewing Company. It’s a wonderful micro brewery here in the city of Edmonton. Paranormal Rona decided to take a group selfie with her phone, and something decided to join us in the picture! If you look above her fur trimmed hat, there is a creature of some sort peeking in the window.
For this creature to be in the window at this position, it is either 7 feet high, or hovering around the 7 foot high range. Weird, yes?
Spirits like to show up in pictures either because they want to be a part of the group or, they want to freak you out when you see the picture. Sometimes they show up looking like weird animal beings. Like this one. He looks a lion faced thing. Maybe he wanted to be furry like Paranormal Rona. Who knows. Maybe he wanted to come in for a beer.
Anyway, it is a very nice surprise and we are still up in the air about exactly what this spirit resembles. But we definitely know which Alley Kat beer we like.
