Ghosts Encounters And New Paranormal Discoveries

Hungry Ghost Month Updates

Paranormal Task Force Founder and real Ghost Hunter and supernatural paranormal investigator Greg Myers, uses the latest new high tech gear to hunt for real ghosts and paranormal activity.

Do You?

Greg Myers of Paranormal Task Force thinks everyone should  PLEASE GHOST HUNT RESPONSIBLY!

Every new Encounter I have with a real Ghost just proves to me the first one I had was very real!

... Gina Lanier - 2008


By Gueydan T. Faeroe


People from all walks of life often ask me why do I research and Hunt for real ghosts. My answer is more then simple. It's because it just lets me know I have had a real experience sine the first encounter I ever had. Just personal proof to myself. But the true reason I believe is because of the good feeling I get from helping others deal with their personal haunted activity. Many people like to read real ghost stories and view real ghost pictures and make up their own mind.

Paranormal is an umbrella term used to describe unusual phenomena or experiences that lack an obvious scientific explanation In parapsychology, it is used to describe the potentially psychic phenomena of telepathy, extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis, ghosts, and hauntings. The term is also applied to UFOs, some creatures that fall under the scope of cryptozoology, purported phenomena surrounding the Bermuda Triangle, and other non-psychical subjects. Stories relating to paranormal phenomena are widespread in popular culture and folklore, but some organizations such as the United States National Science Foundation have stated that mainstream science does not support paranormal beliefs.


Chris Fleming from Dead Famous talks about his childhood experiences with ghosts and what went on during the filming of the tv show Dead Famous.


After years of hearing others talk about their extraordinary experiences, Chris Fleming chose to document these in his own publication, UNKNOWN Magazine: real experiences of the paranormal and the supernatural, which he published from 1997-2001. Since the release of the first issue, Chris has met countless ordinary people with similar experiences from around the globe. He has been featured on numerous radio and TV talk shows all around the world as well as given lectures on his own personal experiences and those featured in UNKNOWN Magazine. He continues to keep in touch and explore his fascination of the paranormal through his web sitewww.unknownmagazine.com.

In his spare time Chris joins forces with local ghost hunters investigating haunted places. Whenever able, he also lends his ear and gives peace of mind to those whom have had their own traumatic paranormal experiences. Using his sensitive abilities he is able to pick up any emotions (empath) or trauma left behind called place memory, sense any ghostly presence, contact and channel departed spirits, and the information he receives is often supported utilizing equipment such as cameras, recorders audio (EVP) and video, EMF detectors, and thermo scanners.

While his abilities continue to develop today he has recently put them to use on the TV series called "Dead Famous." A reality and documentary type program where he and his CO-presenter, Gail Porter investigate "ghostly phenomena" surrounding famous celebrities and historical haunted sites. This has given Chris the opportunity to travel all over the USA visiting some of the most haunted places in America. During these investigations Chris has captured over 1,000 EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena), worked with some of the top psychics and parapsychologists in the field, and co-investigated with countless Ghost Hunters and societies.

Dead Famous - Ghostly Encounters is a television series that searches for the ghosts of the famous dead. Cynical but curious Gail Porter and sensitive Chris Fleming take a spirited road trip through America looking for the ghostly locations where legends of stage, screen and music reside. Described by the channel as "like a sharper, sexier and funnier Mulder and Scully", the duo visit places where, it is claimed, celebrity spirits roam – their hotel rooms, diners, gardens, film lots and theatres.

New Truth About Real Ghosts And Hauntings Equipment And The People Who Hunt Them.

Many Ghost Hunter groups and paranormal researchers or exploring areas that are more then uncharted. Boldly going in to the land of the dead with just a an EMF meter and flashlight. Discoveries like the release of news that a Real Georgia bigfoot has been discovered, or a El Chupacabra has been captured alive effects us the paranormal ghost investigator also.

Approaching paranormal phenomena from a research perspective is often difficult because even when the phenomena are seen as real they may be difficult to explain using existing rules or theory. By definition, paranormal phenomena exist outside of conventional norms. Skeptics contend that they don't exist at all. Despite this challenge, studies on the paranormal are periodically conducted by researchers from various disciplines. Some researchers study just the beliefs in paranormal phenomena regardless of whether the phenomena actually exist.

As a whole the Paranormal community which we are a major part of is lumped in with UFO's, Cryptids, and oddities. Just because it is all considered Para Science to many. But consider this. If a Bigfoot or capture of a creature or his body is found then proven to be the real thing then we all benefit from this. If by a small chance it is proven as a hoax then we as a great community of ghost hunters, paranormal researchers, parapsychologist and UFO researchers are all hurt because our entire community is effected.

Paranormal groups keep trying to discredit another's work. This is what should go on. This is what science and new discovery entails. But hey, don't call members of another group Ghost Flushers or publicly bash them at conventions or on the internet. Yes, opinions do count, but get over it. Your group is as only as good as your evidence and your beliefs. And if you stoop to name calling then look how bad it makes everyone look!

Real Ghosts: Have you seen a real ghost?

While parapsychologists look for quantitative evidence of the paranormal in laboratories, a great number of people immerse themselves in qualitative research through participant-observer approaches to the paranormal. Participant-observer methodologies have overlaps with other essentially qualitative approaches as well, including phenomenological research that seeks largely to describe subjects as they are experienced, rather than to explain them.

Participant-observation suggests that by immersing oneself in the subject being studied, a researcher is presumed to gain understanding of the subject. In paranormal research, a participant-observer study might consist of a researcher visiting a place where alleged paranormal activity is said to occur and recording observations while there. Participation levels may vary. In studying a supposedly haunted location, for example, the researcher may conduct a séance or participate in other activities said to cause paranormal activity.

Criticisms of participant-observation as a data-gathering technique are similar to criticisms of other approaches to the paranormal, but also include an increased threat to the objectivity of the researcher, unsystematic gathering of data, reliance on subjective measurement, and possible observer effects (observation may distort the observed behavior). Specific data gathering methods, such as recording EMF readings at haunted locations have their own criticisms beyond those attributed to the participant-observation approach itself.

The participant-observer approach to the paranormal has gained increased visibility and popularity through reality-based television shows like Ghost Hunters, and the formation of independent ghost hunting groups which advocate immersive research at alleged paranormal locations. One popular web site for ghost hunting enthusiasts lists over 300 of these organizations throughout the United States and the United Kingdom.

Current Paranormal Events And Announcements

It's Hungry Ghost Month August 2008 and many of you in the know certainly know what happens each year at this time.

One such survey of the beliefs of the general United States population regarding paranormal topics was conducted by the Gallup Organization in 2005. The survey found that 73 percent of those polled believed in at least one of the ten paranormal items presented in the survey.

Items included in the survey were as follows (the percentage of respondents who indicated that they believed in the phenomenon is in parenthesis): Extrasensory perception (41%), haunted houses (37%), ghosts (32%), telepathy (31%), clairvoyance (26%), astrology (25%), communication with the dead (21%), witches (21%), reincarnation (20%), and channeling spiritual entities (9%).

Only one percent of those surveyed believed in all ten items.

The items selected for the survey were chosen because they "require the belief that humans have more than the 'normal' five senses."

Another survey conducted in 2006 by researchers from Australia's Monash University sought to determine what types of phenomena people claim to have experienced and the effects these experiences have had on their lives. The study was conducted as an online survey with over 2,000 respondents from around the world participating. The results revealed that around 70% of the respondents believe to have had an unexplained paranormal event that changed their life, mostly in a positive way. About 70% also claimed to have seen, heard, or been touched by an animal or person that they knew was not there; 80% have reported having a premonition, and almost 50% stated they recalled a previous life.


For believers, ghosts are generally seen to be the spirit or soul of a deceased person.[26] Alternative theories expand on that idea and include belief in the ghosts of deceased animals. Sometimes the term "ghost" is used synonymously with any spirit or demon, however in popular usage the term typically refers to a deceased person.

The belief in ghosts as souls of the departed is closely tied to the concept of animism, an ancient belief which attributed souls to everything in nature. As the nineteenth-century anthropologist James Frazer explained in his classic work, The Golden Bough, souls were seen as the creature within that animated the body. Although the human soul was sometimes symbolically or literally depicted in ancient cultures as a bird or other animal, it was widely held that the soul was an exact reproduction of the body in every feature, even down to clothing the person wore. This is depicted in artwork from various ancient cultures, including such works as the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which shows deceased people in the afterlife appearing much as they did before death, including the style of dress.

A widespread belief concerning ghosts is that they are composed of a misty, airy, or subtle material. Anthropologists speculate that this may also stem from early beliefs that ghosts were the person within the person, most noticeable in ancient cultures as a person's breath, which upon exhaling in colder climates appears visibly as a white mist. This belief may have also fostered the metaphorical meaning of "breath" in certain languages, such as the Latin spiritus and the Greek pneuma, which by analogy became extended to mean the soul. In the Bible, God is depicted as animating Adam with a breath.

Numerous theories have been proposed by skeptics to provide non-paranormal explanations for ghosts sightings.[5] Although the evidence for ghosts is largely anecdotal, the belief in ghosts throughout history has remained widespread and persistent.


A 1952 photo of a purported UFO over Passaic, New Jersey.Main article: UFOs
The possibility of extraterrestrial life is not, by itself, a paranormal subject. Many scientists are actively engaged in the search for unicellular life within the solar system, carrying out studies on the surface of Mars and examining meteors that have fallen to Earth.[29] Projects such as SETI are conducting an astronomical search for radio activity that would show evidence of intelligent life outside the solar system. Scientific theories of how life developed on Earth allow for the possibility that life developed on other planets as well. The paranormal aspect of extraterrestrial life centers largely around the belief in unidentified flying objects and the phenomena said to be associated with them.

Early in the history of UFO culture, believers divided themselves into two camps. The first held a rather conservative view of the phenomena, interpreting it as unexplained occurrences that merited serious study. They began calling themselves "ufologists" in the 1950s and felt that logical analysis of sighting reports would validate the notion of extraterrestrial visitation.

The second camp consisted of individuals who coupled ideas of extraterrestrial visitation with beliefs from existing quasi-religious movements. These individuals typically were enthusiasts of occultism and the paranormal. Many had backgrounds as active Theosophists, Spiritualists, or were followers of other esoteric doctrines. In contemporary times, many of these beliefs have coalesced into New Age spiritual movements.[5]

Both secular and spiritual believers describe UFOs as having abilities beyond what is considered possible according to aerodynamics and physical laws. The transitory events surrounding many UFO sightings also limits the opportunity for repeat testing required by the scientific method. Acceptance of UFO theories by the larger scientific community is further hindered by the many possible hoaxes associated with UFO culture.

Paranormal challenges
Main article: List of prizes for evidence of the paranormal
In 1922, Scientific American offered two US $2,500 offers: (1) for the first authentic spirit photograph made under test conditions, and (2) for the first psychic to produce a "visible psychic manifestation." Harry Houdini was a member of the investigating committee. The first medium to be tested was George Valiantine, who claimed that in his presence spirits would speak through a trumpet that floated around a darkened room. For the test, Valiantine was placed in a room, the lights were extinguished, but unbeknownst to him his chair had been rigged to light a signal in an adjoining room if he ever left his seat. Because the light signals were tripped during his performance, Valiantine did not collect the award. The last to be examined by Scientific American was Mina Crandon in 1924.

Since then, many individuals and groups have offered similar monetary awards for proof of the paranormal in an observed setting. These prizes have a combined value of over $2.4 million dollars.

Big Foot is Real!

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is an alleged ape-like creature said to inhabit remote forests, mainly in the Pacific northwest region of the United States and the Canadian province of British Columbia. In northern Wisconsin, Lakota Indians know the creature by the name Chiye-tanka, a Lakota name for "Big Elder Brother." Bigfoot is sometimes described as a large, hairy bipedal hominoid, and some believe that this animal, or its close relatives, may be found around the world under different regional names, such as the Yeti of Tibet and Nepal, the Yeren of mainland China,the Orang Pendek of Indonesia, and the Yowie of Australia.

Bigfoot is one of the more famous examples of cryptozoology, with an ongoing debate on whether it exists or not. Most scientific experts on the matter consider the Bigfoot legend to be a combination of folklore and hoaxes. Despite its uncertain scientific status, Bigfoot is nevertheless a popular symbol, included as "Quatchi," one of the mascots of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and used to name both a provincial park and the annual Sasquatch Daze event in Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia. A minor league baseball team in Arkansas, the Northwest Arkansas Naturals, uses a stylized and smiling version of Bigfoot as the team mascot.

In reports on July 27, 2008, Clayton County police officer Matthew Whitton claimed to have found and retrieved a Bigfoot corpse as part of a group of "trackers". In a press release published August 12, 2008, Bigfoot "trackers" announced that they have collected a Bigfoot corpse. Rick Dyer made claims that he had discovered the deceased body of a possible Sasquatch in the woods of Georgia. A press conference to release alleged photographs and DNA evidence was scheduled on August 15, 2008

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh asks...

Have The Dead Spoken To You Lately?

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh The Great American Necromancer

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh The American Necromancer

The first lady of conjuring the Dead. The ancient art pf Necromancy is still alive today with Waugh at it's main investigator. LISA LEE HARP WAUGH Is a necromancer in the 21st century. She is by what may call a real conduit to the world of the dead. She dressers in ceremonial robes, draws magical circles on the floor and commands spirits from Heaven, Hell and all places in between to appear before her and communicate with the living. As a teenager she studied heavily The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish and The Grand Grimoire by A.E Waite, the Malleus Maleficarum and anything she could get her hands on by the great by Eliphas Levi, John Dee and the great beast, Aleister Crowley. www.ghosthuntersofamerica.com

A professional Necromancer and founder of the Sorcerers Guild of greater Houston, Texas. Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

She then Got involved with the local Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new doors where opened to her concerning communicating with the dead.

Waugh was baptized and trained in the secret dark religion by Bianca The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Waugh lived in New Orleans for 3 years until she learned all about spells, hex's and how to hoodoo voodoo people as she says.

Waugh also owned and managed the fantastic Candle Making Company in Galveston, Texas for many years that catered to the eclectic patrons taste of many of the states visitors and just curious. She then moved to Houston's Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This now where she resides to this day. Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy and her new found religion of Voodoo Hoodoo.

Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of Hell, Heaven and all places in between. Waugh has a large home one room she has painted black where she calls the good spirits. Another painted all black where she calls the infernal spirits.

Waugh is often compared today in her facial features and many similar practices as being a modern Dr. John Dee. He of course was one of the most fascinating characters of the Elizabethan period just as Waugh is recognized as such in modern times. The events of Dee's life are filled with science, experiments, astrology and mathematics which he aligned with magic, the supernatural and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's personal passion and driven honest beliefs. These are also stead fast traditions she does and true in practicing openly. A few of her select followers say she is the actual reincarnation of John Dee. Waugh also practices astrology, and is very continuously studying the Black Arts.

Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal does not comment on any of this privately or publicly ... for she is humble in her paranormal studies and research to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend of her's relates: "Waugh is a very outgoing friendly, charming and a downright loveable person, and gets along equally well with the living and the dead." Lanier and Waugh once investigated a real Haunted Texas Federal Prison together for close to two years in the early 1990's and had many startling paranormal adventures while there.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments have been achieved through hard work, persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude required to overcome obstacles and reach difficult goals. Waugh shares her approach to communicating with the dead's success in this motivational performance that's sure to inspire Paranormal Investigators to excel in their life.
