The Proof Is Out There

You feel or see your first ghostly presence, capture your first EVP, photograph or video and it makes you realize there's more to the world around us than just the one we live in.  That's when  the journey begins and it's different for every person.  One aspect of  doing research and investigating is the possibility that our friends and loved ones who have crossed will come through on our evidence.
Listed below is some of our "proof" that helps us believe that ghosts/spirits do exist .

Spiritual Side of Communicating

 by Rhonda Burton

My spiritual evp research started after reading Sarah Estep's, Voices of Eternity. 
 I then joined the AAEVP which later became the Association of Trans Communication.  This research was to try and confirm that the soul's personality survived after death.  I learned much from the members and directors of this association, for which I'm forever grateful.

The evp below is from my daughter, Jen, who passed in 2007.  The Christmas after she died I was trying to decide on making her an angel or halo Christmas ornament. That night when I recorded she spoke the words, "mommy, I'm an angel." 

When I do my sessions I ask if there is any spirits who would like to communicate.
 I never ask for names unless we're on location and are specifically trying to communicate with someone.

Audio Icon "Mommy, I'm an angel."

The following  evp's were recorded on a super moon night at home and was amazing.  You will hear  my daughter Heather and myself asking questions and responding to spirits, I was using the SB7.(Spirit Box 7)

Audio Icon "I love you" Audio Icon
 " I do" Audio Icon  "I'm Edward" Audio Icon "What's up Heather"


Calling Earth by Dan Drasin

Documentary about communication with the deceased through
modern technology.   This is a very informative video and  worth watching.

ITC Water Video

Experimenting with different techniques is part of learning to communicate
with spirit.  One of my favorite methods was created by Margaret Downey and it's a form of ITC (Instrumental Trans Communication).  
This method is time consuming, but can be
very rewarding.  The technique is using a pan or bowl of water, video camera/camera and a flashlight.  You shine the light to the side of the bowl and stir the water with your finger causing a ripple effect, then ask spirit to show themselves.  Record no longer than 30 seconds, upload video and review frame by frame. You will be viewing 30 frames per second and spirit will show up in one frame, if they choose.  You can also use a camera shooting continuous shots. I captured the images below at different locations.

Old Hospital

May 19th, 2019 Investigation

Click on picture below to watch YouTube video of Cheryl, AGC Medium, using the Legion Paralus cell phone app and interacting with spirit. The general opinion on orbs is you either believe in them or you don't.  I know that most orbs you photograph or video are dust, but if you have a experience the same time an orb appears you have to consider something different is happening.
