Photo Review – Part Two

The photos that we have on our evidence page are there because they relate to something paranormal, not necessarily paranormal in nature by themselves but a reminder for what occurred on the ghost hunt.

The first photo shows nothing paranormal, it looks like a footprint on a wooden floor. Hopefully, that is what it is.

 

It was our first visit to Nothe Fort, Weymouth in 2012, which was a cold November evening, it was raining heavily. During part of the tech session one of the guests asked spirit to “show us your footprints” which is not what he was meant to ask, he should have asked “can we hear your footsteps” but as the session progressed, this footprint appeared on the floor in front of the group. It was approximately measured, and it turned out to be an adult size 7 footprint.

We have often been asked to explain what an orb is or what we think it is. Which is a manifestation of energy, the first level if you like and the easiest shape that energy can create of its own accord. True light anomalies will self-illuminate, therefore there is no need to use a flash (as this is how dust in the air gets illuminated).

 

This photo could be dismissed as dust, as it looks very similar to a photo of dust. There are a few notable features though. The “orb” or light anomaly is behind something else (a tree branch) which then places the orb in the photo. Photos don’t tell you how far away on object is unless there is a shadow on it, then you know which item is in front. It is outdoors and dust doesn’t often “hang about” outdoors and from the experimentation that Steve has done, it isn’t water (rain), pollen or an insect. So whilst it may not be paranormal it is certainly unexplainable, photographically speaking we don’t have any other photo like it from the 1000s that we have taken.

When it comes to photos, we are very intrigued by mists, because mist or fog only occur when the atmospherics are the right combination (cold air hitting warm air e.g. the respiration coming from your mouth on a cold day). Mist or fog doesn’t generally occur in a wood or under a tree canopy because there isn’t a great difference in the air temperature.

This photo taken in Pluckley Screaming Woods on a relatedly mild evening in April 2012 was unusual because we cannot think of any reason why a mist would form under trees when it wasn’t cold. The chap on the left in the photo was also taking photos, but he had nothing. Steve who took the photo was generally taking random shots, not really looking into the viewfinder so didn’t know that he had taken the photo until reviewing them afterwards. The spot where the photo was taken was a “scheduled stop” and on many occasions the group would hold a séance on this path, with many paranormal occurrences happening on this path.

We finish this roundup of photos with another from Pluckley Screaming Woods taken with an Infrared camera. Infrared (IR) light shines from a camera about 2m (6 feet), which is why we need big infrared illuminators for our indoor ghost hunts. Plus we can use the ceiling and walls to bounce the IR light around to get a more even spread of IR light. Outdoors we don’t have anything to bounce the light around and generally don’t use IR cameras or lights outdoors because the IR light would be absorbed by the trees.

In this photo you can see Steve (in the center) and a few people either side of him (there was a group of about 8 people). The pregnant lady in the background about 20m away from the group (wasn’t part of our group, not only that but we didn’t allow pregnant women on events at that time) shouldn’t be illuminated because the IR that was on the camera would not have reached her. For her to be illuminated it would mean that she would have had to have an IR illuminator herself, which is a strange thing for someone who is pregnant to do. (walk around a wood at night in the dark carrying an IR illuminator & battery pack!) It might have been a real person, but the group didn’t hear or see anyone else that night and walking around the woods in the dark whilst pregnant isn’t a wise thing to do. Whilst it may or may not be paranormal it is definitely unusual just on the technicalities alone.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 27-6-2014

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 27th June 2014
Pluckley, Kent

We don’t often write reports for our outdoor events, but this ghost hunt was exceptional and worthy of being written about.

After walking to the centre of the woods and handing out the usual ghost hunting gadgets (KII EMF (Electromagnetic detectors) and Ghost Communication devices) and explaining how to use them, a spirit energy called Thomas stepped close to us, listening to what I was telling the guests about what is likely to happen. Thomas was about 5’9” aged in his late 20s and had a rugged appearance and unshaven. He wore a white/cream granddad shirt and dark green woollen trousers. In life he wouldn’t have been a pleasant person and would always be in trouble. However as a spirit he had realised his wrongs and was happy to communicate with us, which he did.

As we were talking Holly (guest) felt a very cold spot on the back of her lower legs, neither of the guests either side of her felt this sensation.

There was also another older gent spirit (aged in his late 60s or early 70s) present although he was trying to communicate with us very little of what he tried worked, or rather very little we heard or felt. Some guests also felt cold spots but the problem with this is that we were outside and whilst it wasn’t windy and the temperature was about 13 degrees Celsius any slight breeze couldn’t be ruled out.

After a lot of questions and answers and some photographs taken we moved on further into the woods at another crossroad.

Here I set up my laser grid and asked the spirit to step into the grid. I also turned on my spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio waves at 100ms in reverse) and asked the spirit, who was a familiar spirit to say something. After asking for Christian names to spoken we first heard “Holly”, then a while later “Kim” and when asking for how many people we all heard a clear “8”, although there were nine of us. On a couple of occasions I heard my name and other words although these were not about anyone present or in answer to a question. Nothing was seen in the grid although Maxine (guest) saw a blue light in the middle distance.

I suggested that we should create a séance circle to build the energy and allow the spirit to move and touch us whilst giving the guests a physical experience of spirit movement.

Within a matter of minutes the spirit energy that I had seen standing in the grid and had spoken some words on the spirit box, was standing behind me. This spirit is a familiar face to me as I have seen and witnessed his energy several times. His name is Philip and he passed away in a motorcycle accident in the 1960s. He was in his early 30s and he has said that the accident was his own doing.

Philip started by lifting the arms of the two people either side of me (Anita & Nicky) and I was able to prove to both people it wasn’t me lifting their arms. I then asked for either of these people to be moved or pushed, although neither moved at the time Anita told me afterwards she could feel the force pushing on her, but she had dug her feet in as not to move.

I then moved around the circle in between Bevan and Kim and once again Philip moved our arms, Bevan was very quiet when it was his hand moving, speechless in fact as he could not believe what was happening. When I asked for Philip to pull him backwards (I didn’t say this aloud) Bevan was really surprised when he got pulled backwards, although he now became vocal and said it was the best feeling. I wish in a way that I had filmed this as it would have made excellent viewing!

Unfortunately the spirit activity didn’t occur to Kim for some unknown reason. Other people in the séance circle were being wobbled and pushed forwards and backwards as well as having their arms lifted up and pulled to the floor including Maxine and Sarah who were on the other side of the circle.

Once again I moved around the circle so that as many guests as possible could feel this energy. This time I stood in between Holly and Jim and asked that Philip move these people in similar ways to the rest of the group as they were the only two people who had yet to feel this strange sensation. Almost immediately Holly and my hands were being moved although with Jim it took a little longer. Holly and my hands were moved in all directions, some of them were not very comfortable or just plain painful, but neither of us would choose these manoeuvres.

Philip was continuing to move people’s arms and sway or push people however all of a sudden Nicky just seem to “zone out” and didn’t respond to her name being called. As I looked at her I thought I could see her face changing into an older woman, but since she answered in a quiet manner I didn’t think much more about it. Then Nicky more or less collapsed and the only reason why she was standing up was because the two people either side of her were holding her up. Many people called her name but she didn’t respond to anyone and just muttered a few quiet words. I was really expecting her to go into a trance state, however and fortunately (for the other guests) she didn’t. I then quickly pushed her into the centre of the circle and performed some instant healing as well as making Jim able to join her in the centre of the circle, quite a complicated procedure although one which I have done before. After a couple of minutes Nicky was feeling better and more herself and talking normally. Once Nicky was talking and acting in a normal manner I closed the séance circle. Nicky couldn’t remember anything of what just happened to her and she said that she felt really hot, but that was all she could remember. Everyone else felt surprised and wanted to know what just happened and more importantly why it happened to Nicky, which I explained. This particular spirit encounter alarmed or frightened the guests and afterwards they asked me if I was concerned, I answered that this is not the first time this has happened to a guest and it didn’t concern me as I have had to sort out bigger problems than this, although in this instance it helped that all the guests remained sensible and followed my instruction which ended the situation without anyone being in danger or badly affected.

From here we walked to another part of the woods and although nothing in particular happened everyone commented how quiet the woods were and how there were few animal sounds. It was quieter than normal (usually there are bird noises if nothing else) and when everyone stopped talking no sound at all could be heard which some of the guests found more alarming than hearing a noise.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with all guests getting some physical movement that they could not explain nor in some cases understand although everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
