As a born clairvoyant, Rebecca utilizes her abilities to offer consolation to those in need as well as presenting the proper understanding of ghosts and hauntings. Rebecca has traveled throughout the USA, Canada, and as far as Ireland and England to conduct professional investigations and intends on returning to the UK to accomplish investigations throughout Scotland.

After more than a decade of consecutive years of investigating, researching, documenting ghosts and hauntings, learning to perform automatic writing, remote viewing, dowsing and moving ghosts to the “light”, Rebecca is considered to be an experienced professional. Featured on the ABC Family Channel’s “Scariest Places on Earth” as a Psychic of the Dixmont State Hospital grounds this past October, Rebecca has also been contacted by the History and Discovery Channels to assist them with creating future televisions episodes pertaining to her talents, ghosts and hauntings.

Though Rebecca has been featured on television and continues to work with television stations on shows of the paranormal, her first love is writing. Her first book will be published in the year 2008, with two more publications following closely. It is Rebecca’s goal to work more with newspapers and magazines, having her works of literature published worldwide.

All investigators mentioned bring professionalism, education, honesty and experience to each location investigated.

20 Questions Rebbeca Shott
1. Where do you see ghost hunting and Paranormal groups, web sites or Ghost information, tours  Books like your own in 10 years?

In 10 years I believe we will see even more paranormal groups, websites, ghost information, tours and books. As time passes, our technology advances and allows us to capture more respectable proof that ghosts do exist. I would like to see the technology, mainly in cameras and camcorders, allow us to capture only paranormal energy and “siphon” out dust, bugs, breath, smoke and other non-paranormal related anomalies. I believe that people like me who are blessed with clairabilities to see and communicate with ghosts will be more accepted, trusted and open up a new aspect to the paranormal world, working hand-in-hand with science.

2. What would you personally consider to be the definitive proof that ghosts are real?

For me, the proof is that I can personally see them and communicate with them, and that is all the proof I need. For the public, I feel science will have to play a bigger role working together with clairvoyants such as myself to be able to prove that what I see, describe, and experience is indeed paranormal. I work with science and technology now, hand-in-hand with my clairabilities. As I “see” from my aspect, those on the outside can “see” as well through the technology where they can view the energies, or activity as I explain it to them.

3. What is the most real evidence you personally have uncovered so far?

I have 3 examples. I have files upon files of reports containing personal evidence, including EVPs, photographs and video. One of the best personal experiences I’ve had showing evidence involves two different situations at the West Virginia State Penitentiary. The first, my sister (co-investigator) and I were the only two people sitting in a room in the WVSP. All lights were turned off as I recorded with my digital infrared vision camcorder and my sister used our dowsing rods to answer questions as we communicated with the spirit of a man (guard) we discovered. At the end of the ‘conversation’ I asked to show other proof to us that someone was there. Through the video, you can see the rods both move and face the main entrance of the room, and as I filmed the doorway the large, metal door shut and locked “by itself”. I immediately snapped a digital photo and captured a decent paranormal orb directly in front of the door.

The other situation took place in the Sugar Shack as my sister dowsed and I ran the tape recorder and camcorder. Speaking to another ghost of an inmate named Michael that we discovered, I asked him if he would manifest so I could capture him in a photo. Filming the rods, I said “can I take a picture of you”, and the rods did not move to answer, but on both the camcorder and the cassette tape, right after I ask the question a deep, husky man’s voice can be heard saying “take one now”. This was not heard at the time of the filming but during review of the night a day later. I did not take a photo as the rods did not indicate a “yes” reply.

Last, I have been able to “read” for people over email and the phone by remote viewing and opening myself up to the “other side”, and have been able to describe these perfect strangers’ friends and family that have died, some before I was born. I am able to give people messages that only they would understand and realize the meaning of, without asking them questions before or during our interaction. To most people, especially those that have contacted me for help in one way or another, that proves that “life goes on” after the human body shell expires.

4. Are you skeptical of the claims other make of their findings?

I am just as skeptical of my own findings as I am of other people’s. To be a good researcher, you have to do just that; research! My intuitive is very strong, and I am able to remote view and “read” photographs well, so upon looking at a photo or video I am able to “tell” if the anomaly is paranormal or otherwise. One must take the time to experiment, recreate or research anomalies captured on film in video to dismiss all obvious arguments before proclaiming an anomaly caught on film or in video is a true paranormal anomaly.
5. If you could investigate your "Dream Haunted Hot Spot" where would it be?

In the USA, I would love to spend a few nights in what used to be the Danvers State Hospital, or the Traverse City State Asylum. I do a lot of historical research on locations like hospitals, asylums and prisons as they are the facilities that intrigue me the most historically and paranormally. I would also like to privately investigate the Queen Mary. In Europe, I’ve already investigated the Tower of London, but any castle commercial or not would suffice! I am also intrigued by the skeleton-lined catacombs under the streets of cities like Prague and Paris.

6. What was your first Paranormal encounter?

My first paranormal encounter occurred when I was only 4 years of age, and at the time did not realize that the people I saw and spoke to, including my Native American Indian spirit guide, were in fact ghosts! Jumping ahead to my college years, I finally started to accept my abilities, research them, contact people around the world to help me understand and hone my abilities, and then I began investigating public and private locations.

7. What scares you about Ghost Hunting or Paranormal Investigations?

Nothing scares me personally about ghosts or investigating haunted locations. What scares me about ghost hunting in general are the people who exploit true, professional and knowledgeable investigators and researchers such as myself. The exploitation and commercialization of the industry and the existence of ghosts has caused more people to question those who obtain special abilities rather than be open-minded and learn from them!

8. If you could work side by side with one of the Paranormal Investigator greats, who would it be?

I would love to meet and investigate a couple of locations with James Van Praagh.

9. Read any good Paranormal Books lately other then your own?

For entertainment purposes, I enjoy local author Chris Woodyard who wrote the “Haunted Ohio” series amongst many other books. My favorite general paranormal book is entitled “Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits and Haunted Places” by author Brad Steiger.

10. What Question do people ask you most when you tell them your a paranormal investigator, writer?

When people find out I can see and communicate with ghosts, the first question I am asked is if anyone is around them followed closely by “do they have any messages for me?” Another question that is continuous is how I can see and communicate with the dead. I am asked quite often what my book is about, and I keep the answers general as my unique twist will create an aspect that differs magnificently from all of the other ghost and haunted location writers out there.

11. In your opinion, Where is the most Haunted city in America?

I have never been to a city in America that is more haunted than the next. What most people don’t realize is that every city, every field, every house is haunted or at least visited by ghosts. You do not have to travel to commercially advertised haunted locations. Most places such as prisons, hospitals and battlegrounds are considered more haunted because of the amount of deaths that took place.

If I have to choose, I would consider the most haunted city in America to be Gettysburg not only because of the number of deaths, but the pain, suffering and high emotion that took place with death. In general the area is one location that has been so energetically scarred that it is emotionally draining with paranormal energy. Where there is high paranormal energy, there is usually paranormal activity as well portraying it as “more haunted”.

12. Do you feel more people should get involved with Ghost hunting or Paranormal Investigation?

People should get involved with ghost hunting only if they are serious, act in a mature, safe manner and are knowledgeable about ghosts. I do feel that people should be made more aware of ghosts, the possibility that they do exist, and what proof we can capture at this time to show that ghosts do exist. We can only capture as much proof as our technology allows us to, and in time, that will be great!

13. What does the future hold for you?

The future holds some published books written by me, more international and national investigations, success in helping people understand and be soothed by ghosts instead of being afraid of them. I will be getting married to co-investigator and my legal counsel, Attorney Hans Muller in October. The future also holds the unknown and I leave it up to fate to guide me in the right direction.

14. Paranormal Conventions do you see them growing? And which ones are the Must go to ones?

As the public’s interest and curiosity of ghosts grow, I see paranormal conventions growing as well. A couple highly recommended conventions I would suggest are as follows: Grand Canyon Paranormal Convention and the Ghost World Conference in Gettysburg.


 15. What is your most favored tool of the trade?

My clairabilities are my favorite tool, and I like to prove them by using dowsing rods, cameras and video. I also show people how to properly (the key!) use the dowsing rods and they can feel the electricity for themselves and ask questions that only they would know the answers to as they’re surprised by the response of the rods.

16. Tell us about your best moment in investigating or conference attending for you?

The best moment for me during investigations happens continuously. My abilities provide me with the opportunity to help people understand ghosts and hauntings, as well as give comfort to them in regards to a loved one who has passed. The most important honor I’ve gained in this industry is consoling those who only think they’ve lost loved ones “for good”.

17. What is the hardest part about being a paranormal writer?

At the time, it has been difficult finding the time to continue writing ideas for my books. It is important that I do not repeat what all of the other writers have already stated, and to create a unique twist in my non-fiction books that will capture the public’s attention, be understood and be distinctive from everyone else.

Gettysburg ghosts, Becky Shott at Devil's Den: Taken on top fo Devil's Den in Gettysburg, another orb of which my dowsing rods are pointing to, but it's difficult to see them in the picture.

18. How do you document your investigations?

My documentation stems from descriptive notes that are taken by myself and the co-investigators that are participating in the investigation. We film everything. The camcorder is not turned off except for a change of tapes, batteries or restroom breaks. Otherwise, it runs nonstop and thousands of photos are taken per investigation. Nothing is missed, all energies are captured the results are success.
19. Have you ever taken a ghost Tour? And, What about it did you not like?

I have attended many ghost tours in prisons, towns and local buildings. What I do not like about most ghost tours in general is that they are solely based on myth and tall tales rather than taking the time to investigate and enlighten the public about the true ghosts that may haunt the location. The other thing I do not like is how most guides tend to completely exaggerate the ghosts, hauntings and experiences to make them more exciting to sound more “Hollywood”, rather than being respectful of the dead and their living family members and friends.

20. What in the field of ghost hunting and Paranormal Investigating needs the most attention.

Training. I believe that people should do serious research, training, practice and experiments before heading out into the world to try and hunt actual ghosts. It is a fascination and interest of many people, which is great, but those who intend on investigating ghosts should not attempt to do so without proper experience, common sense and knowledge.
