When I became a paranormal investigator with one of my best friends Renee Daw we were excited about the new direction our lives were about to go in. But we did not enter this world lightly and we had many conversations about boundaries and possibilities that were beyond our own understanding. We also knew that we were entering a world that could expose us to the dark side of the paranormal so we took precautions right away and we were hyper vigilant about gaining information by researching everything we came across that we did not understand. What we didn’t count on was being followed home by an entity of any kind.
It was June of 2013 and we had just investigated the Elmira Cemetery in Vacaville, California with Renee and my niece Sam who was curious to learn about the paranormal. That night was pretty intense and we were not prepared for what we were about to discover about this cemetery and how it would have such an affect on our lives. Early the next morning I woke up and went into the kitchen, my niece and I were the only ones home and she was in the shower. I left my kitchen for no longer then two minutes, when I returned I was shocked to see that all the cabinets in my kitchen were wide open. My first reaction was someone else must still be home but when I realized that wasn’t true I knew this was caused by something supernatural so I grabbed my camera and took some photographs of the cabinets.
Right away I began to pour through the evidence we collected from the Vacaville Cemetery. I was shocked to find that we had captured 5 apparitions and 4 class A EVPS. In the paranormal world that is a good night and more then we had ever experienced in one night of investigating. Being exposed to so much made me realize that I may have been followed home.
Honestly, I was more curious then freaked out so I decided to conduct some EVPS to establish communication and random photographs throughout my house. (Please do not try this at home unless you have experience with the paranormal). After capturing some voices on my recorder I learned that I was dealing with more then one spirit. As it turns out one of the spirits turned out to be my grandmother who passed away over 20 years ago.
The person in this photograph is my grandmother. If she seems too young to be my grandmother you would be correct. Some spirits do not come through the age they passed away. According to world renowned psychic Sylvia Brown the elderly go back to their 30 year old selves. I have experienced both ends of that theory but there is no doubt that the photograph of my grandmother is a much younger version of herself.
I cannot say for sure if my grandmother has been with me all along but one thing is for sure becoming a paranormal investigator has made me more aware of my surroundings and more open to most things supernatural.
Other then my grandmother I do believe I have at least 3+ spirits as well, a man, woman and child. None of which I feel are evil or demonic. The female is the one who communicates the most through my voice recorder. For some reason spirits like to say my name especially her.
Both of these EVPS were captured during an investigation four weeks ago by my paranormal group. The first one was actually heard by one of my investigators which is very rare.
EVP 1: “Holly”
EVP 2: “Hello Holly”
Most of the time if an EVP is clear we hear what they are saying but interpreting their message is sometimes very difficult. The best EVPS are the ones that respond to a question or comment. These next 2 EVPs are a great example.
EVP 3: “I’m right here”
EVP 4: “Oh well good”
There are certain precautions I have taken to ensure my safety and the safety of everyone in my home especially my dogs. I made it clear that if they mess with my dogs I will have them removed. So far they have been very respectful of my wishes but I did capture a photograph that can only be described as a bunch of children hanging out with my dog Bode.
As you can tell in the photograph my dog was either unaware of the children or he is tolerating their presence. Either way it is far more then I had originally thought.
Before continuing on I would like to go back and share a slideshow with you that I captured one late night in my bedroom. Up until 3 months ago the only voices that I could hear were through a voice recorder but something changed, suddenly I was hearing the voices almost daily with my own ears. This was not a scary change for me. It just made me more curious. Some believe that the more we live in the supernatural world the more we are able to see and hear. Although I believe in the paranormal I am still very skeptical so having proof through science is an important aspect in investigating and researching the paranormal. With that in mind I decided to set up a camera in my bathroom and attempt communication by using an EMF Detector (electro magnetic field) and my voice recorder.
During most investigations the evidence that is being revealed to us is not clear until after the investigation is over and we are safe at home. This was not the case on this particular night. For the first time I was staring at what I was photographing with one exception, I could only see him through a reflection. My first thought was this cannot be what I think it is. I tried to debunk this image in every way I could think of. Then I realized it was changing shape and fading away right in front of me.
This video will show you how he appeared and disappeared right in front of me.
That experience made me realize that I have more then just human spirits in my home. I still do not believe that I am in any kind of danger but I do believe I am experiencing something I have never seen before so I am keeping myself open to other possibilities. This last photograph was also taken during our last investigation. The reason I chose this one to show you is because the apparition of the man above my head is not the only one in the photograph. My mother’s dog who passed away 3 years ago is also in the picture along with others I have never seen before.
Discovering new evidence is an ongoing process for a paranormal investigator and most of the time that is very exciting. I cannot tell you how many ghosts are in my home and I am not sure I will ever know, but the one thing I know for sure is that I will never give up the quest to uncover the truth. When we started this journey I never imagined that I would become the person who was living in a haunted house but the reality of it all is that there are many spirits walking among us reaching out from the other side. Fearing this can be paralyzing so I have chosen to remain calm and open in hopes that one day we will actually learn from their constant whispers in the dark and that they are not to be feared but embraced because death is not the end, it is the beginning.
