Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 22-3-2014 (Kym)

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 22nd March 2014
Chatham, Kent

Area: 10 Equipment: KII’s, Ghost Pro’s, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Writing Planchette

Group B  – Kerry (team) joined me on my first session and we started with explaining to guests how to use the pendulums and dowsing rods.  Almost immediately we had movement on all, and the guests were able to establish their yes & no’s, which they enjoyed immensely asking questions to spirit.  I then suggested we split the group so three girls joined Kerry on the writing planchette whilst I took the remaining five guests into the opposite room.  We continued using the pendulums, but also used the ghost pro.  We then re-joined the others as they were experiencing a lot of movement with the writing, and some other guests joined in.  As all the writing received seemed to be random, we turned the paper over and asked spirit to write the initial of one of the persons present.  Immediately we had the letter J – and Julie (guest) was very surprised.  We then asked for another initial of a guest, and to Calum’s surprise a C was drawn.  We then joined everyone else in the tunnel, and some guests could smell burning, and another guest felt a touch on her back.

Group C – I was joined by Carl (team) on my second session who was filming for us.  After handing out the rods & pendulums we received movement with them.  Then we tried the writing planchette again.  Although we had movement, not as much as before, it was just random squiggles.  Whilst standing around the table one guest felt a touch on her back.  I took three guests into the opposite room with ghost pro, explained how to use it, and once they had contact with spirit they went to explore the tunnel.  Carl started feeling unwell so he left the area.  The remaining three guests returned and tried the planchette, whilst the others went to explore the tunnel.  One of the guests could feel the energy behind her and had the name Victor in her head, and asking spirit if that was his name we started to get movement on the writing planchette.  With no more movement I placed a ghost pro on the table, and one of the guests was sure she saw it move.  I said it was possible as I recalled an incident in that room many months before when I had placed a camera on the table and we all had seen it move.  The five guests then returned from the tunnel and said that two of them had been touched on the back of knee within 4 minutes of each.

Group A – With my last group, all four ladies were showing an enormous fear of the spiders in that area.  We entered very slowly, pointing out where not to stand, and everyone felt comfortable to enter one of the rooms.  I handed out the rods & pendulums and all received some movement.  One guest in particular who had used the rods before was able to ask spirit yes & no questions from the start.  We had a male soldier with us, and when asking if he would join us on the table with the writing planchette, he answered yes.  Whilst asking spirit to move the planchette we could hear the table creaking underneath.  With fingers on the planchette and a hand on table, we could feel gently rocking on both.  We then all took a break and one of the guests asked spirit to copy her whistle, and we all heard what sounded like a female whistle back.  As two of the guests had left the area because of her fear of the spiders, we had to check it wasn’t them, but they were standing outside and hadn’t even heard us whistle out, and had definitely not made a sound themselves.  We did ask spirit to repeat the noise but nothing.  All six of us then walked up the tunnel, and some noises and taps were heard.

I then joined Steve, Kerry & guests in area 26, and we did a séance circle.  I was holding hands with Louise (guest) to my left.  She had been reluctant to join in as before she had felt sick whilst in the circle, but I persuaded her to join in.  I started feeling a heavy weight on my left shoulder, and Steve said we had the spirit of Justin behind us.  He was very large and had been a prisoner.  I asked Justin to move the weight onto Louise’s shoulder as I didn’t want her to think I was pulling her down, and to her surprise, and my relief, the heavy weight moved to her right shoulder.  We were then pushed down to the floor, and Louise thanked spirit and asked to be moved back up.  I then suggested she ask spirit to move to her left shoulder which it did.  She then asked for spirit to move to her son Calum’s shoulder which it did.  Louise continued to ask Justin to move us in various ways, which he was very happy to oblige.  Meanwhile the remainder of people in the circle were being moved by two other spirits, and we all ended up being moved in various, and sometimes funny positions.

A great end to a memorable night!

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 8-3-2014 (Kym)

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 8th March 2014
Rochester, Kent

Area: Officers Mess Equipment: KII’s, Ghost Pro’s, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Writing Planchette

Group C  – handed out rods & pendulums, explaining how to use them.  Guests stayed for a short while outside room 1 using these, then went off to explore.  Guests were continually amazed to see the rods and pendulums move – especially when they established a yes & no. We tried the writing planchette, and glass on table but received no movement, however we moved the table to room 6 and the glass started moving.  The spirit was willing to answer questions by moving the glass to the light for yes, or away for no.  The spirit confirmed he was a prisoner, had murdered someone, was in his twenties, had died in the prison, and his initials were G O.  Asked if he meant “go” – he said no.  Some of the guests felt they were being touched.  As the questions being asked (and not answered) were about his death, to lighten the mood we asked spirit if they wanted to play with the glass – in answer to this the glass started moving in rapid circles.  All guests took it in turns to ask the spirit to stop the glass and change direction – to which it did.  The glass also started twisting around, with the guests moving around the table with the glass.

Group A – A sheep had been spotted roaming the fort when we finished the last session, and being told that it could be in our area, we was very cautious when entering.  I think I was more scared of a sheep jumping out on me than a ghost! With no animals found we started with four guests trying the glass work, whilst the other four tried the rods & pendulums.  I went back to check on guests with glass, and after encouraging spirit to come forward we had some movement, but only for a short while.  I then swapped the guests over, and although we did receive some glass movement, the table started rocking at the same time.  We tried some table tipping but only received slight movement.  All the guests then explored the area with rods & pendulums, I also handed out some Ghost Pro’s and KII’s.  We had two spirits come through on the ghost pro’s; male in his thirties – worked as a cook at the fort, and female who worked at the fort for Sgt Andrews.  Asked if she had passed to the light, she replied yes.  Asked if with her loved ones, replied yes.  Asked spirit to touch any of us or make a noise – we heard one bang.  Asked spirit to repeat with two bangs, but heard nothing.

Group B – We started with all guests at the top of corridor using the rods & pendulums – and were amazed to receive lots of movement.  Myself and guest to my right both felt a cold breeze on our hands holding the pendulums.  The rods & pendulums were moving on command which amazed many.  Some then tried the glass in room 6, but with no movement moved table to room 5 and tried the writing planchette.  The writing planchette started moving straight away.  We asked for spirit to write his intials and we got S A.  Asked spirit if he was Sgt Andrews to draw a circle – and it did.  We asked spirit to draw the number of his room that was his office – he drew the number 4.  Whilst the planchette was moving around the table, the table started rocking too.  Randomly the planchette would also lift up.  We asked how many spirits were in the room – drew the number 9.  As there were nine of us in the room – we asked if each spirit could touch us in the same place.  However one guest started feeling sick and unwell, and as our time was up we finished the session.  On checking with guests if they felt a touch, one guest had a touch on her knee, another had a touch on her hand, and I had felt a touch on my head.

With the free session I joined guests back in the officers mess.  Some wanted to try the glass on table, and whilst the glass was moving around the table, the table was rocking slightly.

An interesting night tonight – with movement on table in more ways than one at the same time – very unusual – but of course Fort Bortstal always surprises us.  Until next time…

Theatre Royal ghost hunt – 18-1-2014 (Kym)

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Theatre Royal ghost hunt, Margate 18th January 2014

Area: Third floor of auditorium

Equipment: Writing Planchette, glass on table, table tipping, Ghost Pro, KII, Dowsing Rods & Pendulums

Was looking forward to this venue very much, had missed last years and had always wanted to do a ghost hunt in a theatre.  The amount of energies to have visited or worked here would be many, and for us tonight this proved correct, as each session Sue (GHE team) & I held, different spirits came through each time to talk to us.

With our first group we showed guests how to use the equipment, and let them choose what they wanted to try first.  Four guests who had been on ghost hunts before went to the top seats with equipment.  The remainder tried the rods & pendulums, with some trying some glass work.  The pendulums moved a little, the glass had some slight vibration.  The four at the top asked if anyone was in the room behind them as they could hear talking, but no-one was there.  Some of these guests were feeling coldness around them, with one person having a cold blow in her ear.  They had also had a lot of KII activity, and the ghost pro informed them they had a female spirit with them who was a cleaner at the theatre.  One male guest went to sit at the top on the opposite side, using the dowsing rods.  Shortly after he came down very pleased, he had been communicating with a female spirit using the rods, and had smelt perfume around him.  Sue, who had been communicating with a spirit using the ghost pro, asked spirit if they would like to try some table tipping.  With a positive response she & two guests tried this.  After several creaks from the table frame, the table started lifting very gently.  With a few lifts Sue asked spirit to answer some questions lifting the table one way for yes, and the opposite way for no.  We established the spirit was female, in her 40’s, from the 1960’s, betrayed by a lover, hurt emotionally, worked at the theatre, was married with children, but had an affair with a man.  This man was still alive and working at the theatre, and she was still looking for him.  She committed suicide by hanging herself, but not at the theatre.  She didn’t mean to die, it was a cry for help.  Sue & guest were feeling a coldness to their side, and the other guest on the table felt pins & needles all down her arm, which stopped at her wedding finger – was this connected to the female spirit.  Meanwhile other guests were continuing to use the pendulums, requesting spirit move to their request, which always surprised them, especially when the pendulum was swaying, looking like someone was tapping the chain.

With our second group, I started with the rods & pendulums and had lots of movement.  We then tried the writing planchette and had movement immediately.  Much was drawn but nothing eligible, so I removed the pen & paper, and used the planchette for spirit to move around the table, hopefully answering some questions.  We asked spirit many questions, move planchette to oldest person on the table, person with child, person(s) with pets, person with a motorbike, person who didn’t drive, person who lived nearest to this theatre – all with positive responses.  We asked spirit to draw a square – which it did, then could the spirit draw a large square all around the table, and to our surprise the planchette went off the table and moved around the edge.  We also asked spirit to lift the planchette a couple of times – which it did.  The guests then explored the top area and reported no talking in the room behind, but lots of KII activity, and pendulum moving.

Meanwhile Sue was with two female guests, using the glass on the table.  They had a male spirit age 56 years old, had a daughter aged seven who was run over & killed, he had never gotten over her death.  He had another daughter still living age 18 years old, and one of the guests reminded him of his daughter.  This gentleman was a Scaffolder & married.  He had passed within the last 10 years, and visited the theatre because it reminded him of happy times with his children.  The second spirit that joined them was also male, and had passed in the last 10 years.  He raced greyhounds at the dog track in Margate.  He was an actor at the theatre and had died of natural causes.  We asked him to draw his first initial with the glass – V.  We felt his name was Victor, and he confirmed this was correct.  We also asked him to draw his age – 83.  Then a female spirit came through, this was the same female from our first session who had been lifting the table.  She moved the table slightly, however one guest felt a similar sensation to an earlier guest, tingling down her hand to her wedding finger.  And cold spots were felt around them when the female spirit was present.

With the third group we started with the rods & pendulums, and they started moving.  Myself and two guests started using the writing planchette, it started moving almost immediately, with the letter v drawn twice – was this Victor, or one guest thought it could be a female spirit called Vera.  With nothing more being drawn we again removed the paper & pen, and used the planchette to communicate.  As it was moving without me I left the two guests using this to ask many questions.  Sue was using the glass on table, and the spirit of Victor had joined them again, he had drawn his initial V on the table, and seemed to want to just have fun by drawing lots of shapes at request.  The guests explored area with kit before ending the controlled sessions, and starting the free session.

Sue & I had enjoyed this ghost hunt immensely, feeling the many spirits that joined us wanted to tell their story, and give us all evidence of their existence.  A wonderful theatre – can’t wait to return.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 23-11-2013 (Kym)

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 23rd November 2013

Area: 10

Equipment: KII’s, Ghost Pro’s, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Writing Planchette

We started by turning on the ghost pro’s & KII.  Immediately the ghost pro lit up.  We established the spirit was a male soldier.  The guests started using the pendulums & rods, and were surprised by the movement, feeling sure they weren’t doing it.  They would swing, vibrate, rotate and move on request.  We then tried the writing planchette, and whilst asking for spirit to move the pen, Victoria (guest) got pushed to her right.  Then to her surprise her legs got pushed away underneath her, causing her to nearly fall down.  And whilst this was happening the planchette started lifting up one side.  I stepped away from the table and the planchette continued lifting up, and then I felt someone touch my bum which made me jump and look behind me.  With our session nearly up, we said goodbye to the spirit, and with that he wrote the letter “b” on the paper.  We took this as “bye”.

With the second session we all started by using the ghost pro, pendulums & rods.  With a spare set of rods I used them too.  Once establishing my yes/no we communicated with the spirit; a male soldier, same spirit as on the earlier session, and also the same spirit that I had encountered in the hanging room on a previous ghost hunt at the fort.  His name was Rob, was married, his wife was in the room with us, had no children, passed at the fort age 33 in 1867.  We asked where he was standing and the rods pointed to behind me.  We then tried the writing planchette, encouraging spirit to move it for the next few minutes.  We then heard a noise in the corner of the room, Emma (guest) felt a touch on her back and then the planchette started moving.  Louise (guest) had an animal suddenly in her head, asking her not to tell us we asked spirit to draw the animal.  The pen started moving all over the paper.  We asked spirit to lift the planchette up when he had finished drawing – it did so we looked at the picture, which resembled a rabbit – Louise had bugs bunny!  Then the planchette started lifting up again and the spirit seemed to want to play.  It continued to draw randomly.  With our session coming to an end we asked for a noise as a sign, and we heard a footstep in the corridor.

With my third group again we started with the rods & pendulums, and Sean had joined me to film this time.  The guests were able to ask spirit to move the pendulums and rods in many different ways, to which it responded.  We then tried the writing planchette and had some slight movement, then just has it started moving up & down the camera battery died with 40 minutes left.  The planchette didn’t move anymore, but we were hearing noises around us, and guests were feeling touches.

My fourth group started by using the rods & pendulums and were surprised by the movement, to their request.  We were hearing noises around us, and some guests were feeling touches.  Footsteps were heard all around us in the room.  We tried to get some movement on the writing planchette, and it did move slightly, and lifted up once at the end.  Throughout all our hands were icy cold.

With an hour left for the guests to enjoy the free session, Jo & I joined some guests in the hanging room.  The spirit that stepped forward was Thomas who had been with Jo in this room throughout the evening.  He was able to move the spring Ouija in many different ways, often to the guest’s request.  We stayed here filming until the end – great night!

Groundlings Theatre ghost hunt – 9-11-2013 (Kym)

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Groundlings Theatre ghost hunt, Portsmouth 9th November 2013

Area: Main Theatre

Equipment: Ouija Table, Ghost Pro, KII, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums

On entering the area with our first group we turned on the Ghost Pro’s & KII’s and explained how they work.  We then held a séance circle to bring the spirit energies forward.  Whilst in the circle Sue & the guest next to her, could feel cold on their hands, child height.  We then sat the guests around the table, fingers on glass asking spirit to step forward and communicate with us.  After a short while the glass started moving, very slowly.  We asked spirit to tell us their age – it went to 5.  Then moved to A and asked the ghost pro’s if 5A was his class – yes.  Jason (team) who was filming for us had the name Joseph in his head.  The ghost pro confirmed this was his name.  After not much more glass movement the guests used the dowsing rods and pendulums to communicate with Joseph.  John (guest) in particular was receiving a lot of response with the rods, with the spirit of Joseph saying that John reminded him of his father.  The guests then wanted to try some table tipping, and with hands on table could feel and hear taps on the table.  We were also hearing noises on the stage.  With very little time left on this session, Sue & I put our hands on the table too, and with a lot of encouragement from all of us, the table lifted once towards John.  With no more movement, and big thank you’s to Joseph for his huge effort, John wanted to try the pendulum, and was amazed by the huge circles the pendulum was moving, and when asking Joseph to stop and change direction, it did immediately.  It was also noted throughout the session team and guests, when standing in a particular area felt pain on the top of their head.  This was not felt on any more sessions.

With our second group, we had 7 guests so 3 and Sue tried the glass on the Ouija table, whilst I sat with the remaining 4 guests using pendulums and rods.  Whilst we were receiving lots of movement, with guests asking spirit to move the rods and pendulums in certain ways, including the pendulums vibrating unusually on request, Sue was communicating with a spirit called Dan age 8, he said he was born in 1478 and passed in 1486/1489, saying he went to school here, but on checking the school opened in 1748.  All the correct numbers but in the wrong order, but he was only 8!  He said he had 3 brothers (one called Alfred) & 2 sisters.  We then brought all the guests together on the table so everyone could experience the glass moving, but not wanting to break the connection the existing guests had.  The glass started moving slightly different and we had the spirit of Charles age 26 who was a teacher here.  The spirit seemed to respond to one guest, saying she reminded him of his mum.  The guests then wanted to see if Charles was able to move the table.  Lots of creaks/taps on and under the table were heard, then it lifted up one side.  The table then started sliding across the floor which was made easy for spirit as it was laminate flooring.  All the guests were able to ask where they wanted the table moved to, and to their surprise the table would slide there.  We then asked spirit to lift the table up on to one leg and rotate with everyone having to move fast to keep up.

This was now the end of the controlled sessions and the guests then explored the theatre with equipment with or without team.  I spent some time in the main area with guests, and was able to experience table movement again.  I then suggested the guests tried the writing planchette in a school room, and leaving them on their own, they were able to experience various letters/pictures being drawn.

A fantastic night – made even more brilliant by the enthusiasm of all the guests!

The Star Hotel ghost hunt – 25-10-2013 (Kym)

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

The Star Hotel, Alfriston – 25th October 2013

I was in the main room with the Ouija table, trying glass movement/Ouija/writing planchette and table tipping.  I started with my first group using the Ghost Pro & KII, however as they seemed to be lighting up very erratically we choose not to use them (later when chatting to other team members they all experienced the same).  With no immediate movement with the glass on Ouija table we did a séance circle to build the energies.  I started to feel a heavy weight on my right shoulder, I asked spirit to do this to others and immediately it left me and moved to a guest.  Others were swaying and one guest felt a cold breeze behind her (no windows open).  We then tried the writing planchette and to our surprise it started moving.  I went elsewhere in the room and drew a circle with a line through it, asked spirit to copy this with the guests and it did.  When asking spirit to copy another picture, it seemed to want to play and do his own thing.   We asked spirit to take the planchette to the edge of table to show where he was standing, and when it did guests could feel cold between them.  The planchette then started lifting on one corner, and when the guests looked the side that lifted up was where most of their fingers were.  Asked spirit to lift it higher which it did.  We then asked spirit to draw the number of how many human females were in the room – it drew 4 – correct.  Asked spirit to draw the number of human men in the room – it drew 3 – correct.  The planchette started moving in rapid circles, and when guests took it in turns to ask spirit to change direction, the planchette would stop and change direction every time.

With my second group we tried the writing planchette and had slight movement.  We tried table tipping and again very slight movement.  We then tried glass work and it started moving very gently, we felt possibly a female or young girl.  We tried asking her name and age but just got the letter A and 5, 6 or 7.  I had been thinking of the name Annabel, Julie (guest) had been thinking of the name Alice.  Then the energy seemed to change and the glass started moving faster around the table.  We received no definitive words but the spirit was willing to move in rapid circles and stop and change direction when anyone asked.

With my third group as we had no movement on the writing planchette and glass, we held a séance circle to build some energies again.  The guest to my left started swaying, then I did too and we seemed to be swaying at the same time in sync.  Then she started feeling a heavy weight on her right shoulder.  Her hand was being pulled to the floor.  This continued until her hand touched the floor, and however hard she tried, she was unable to pull her hand off the floor.  We asked spirit to move us back up, and after much asking we were standing upright again.  Then we started feeling the pull down again, we fought against this, which we found extremely difficult, and eventually spirit seemed to give up and move away.

At this point Steve and his group joined us as the free session had now started.  We all stayed in this room and tried the writing planchette again.  Steve could see the spirit of Jeremiah with us, wanting to draw for us.  The spirit was able to draw for us a balloon with string, and a triangle, which Steve had asked for.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 27-7-2013 – Paranormal Investigator

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Fort Borstal Invitation Ghost Hunt 27th July 2013

I was in the Officers Mess for the evening and we had set up the cameras covering the corridor and three rooms, this could be viewed on a screen in one of the rooms, and was being recorded all night.  We also had the Ouija board and writing planchette in one room with the option of using blindfolds and earplugs to provide a sensory experience.

With my first group after observing the cameras for a short while, we started with the writing plancette and had movement immediately. Whilst establishing with the ghost pro who the spirit was, a female aged under 16, we heard a heavy footfall in the corridor.  The planchette continued to move, but no written message given, although it moved to the edge of the table and as one corner went over the edge of the table it started lifting up and down.  Then very quickly it stopped and we all felt the energy change.  The ghost pro confirmed we had a male spirit with us.  With no more movement on the writing planchette we tried with hands on the table and asked spirit to move the table, to which he obliged and started gently rocking the table.

Our second group was much less active, and as the guests started to look very relaxed with their fingers on their glass, possibly too relaxed, I asked spirit to wake up the guests, to which we were all surprised when we heard something loud falling on the floor.  This was one of the ghost pros, which was in Graham’s (guest) pocket.  However he was sure he had half zipped up his pocket…..

The third group wanted to start with the writing planchette, and all wearing blindfolds.  Immediately the planchette started moving around the paper but no visible message given.  As the energy felt very strong I suggested removing their fingers until just one person was left touching.  We were all amazed when the planchette didn’t stop with just one finger left.  The spirit seemed to want to play rather than write a message as the planchette was continually taken to the edge of the table and over the side, moving along the side fast when asked.  When the planchette was put back on the table and asked to moved in circles it did.  Again the guests tried removing their fingers until just one left touching, and although it stopped moving around the table/paper, the planchette started tipping up and down, very unusual, definitely a playful spirit.

Whilst four guests were doing this, one guest was holding the Ovilus III, and the following words came through; SIX (of which we replied yes there are six of us) COUNT (we replied by asked the spirit to count how many spirits were with him) FIFTEEN !!

With my fourth group we started with the writing planchette and Ouija board but no movement.  We did hear whistles in the corridor and encouraged by this we asked spirit to copy our whistles, of which we had replies.  However after a short while the whistles we were hearing changed to be more animal like and on checking we realised a bird had started replying to us.  We did hear footsteps in the corridor which sounded like someone walking through a puddle, of which there was one just inside the entrance.  We then did a séance circle in the corridor, and Matt & Karen’s  (guests) arms started moving up gently.  They took it in turns to ask spirit where to move their arms, of which spirit obliged.  One guest felt like someone pushing the backs of legs.  With no more than just gentle swaying/movement we stopped.  The guests then went back to the table and tried the Ouija board but only little movement.

Then for the last hour the guests had the opportunity to explore on their own…
