Cassadaga, Real Ghosts Encounters!


Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Has always been a place I have truly wanted to visit. I visited Cassadaga for a day trip while visiting a friend in Florida this past week. I personally wanted to see what the town was all about and to see if anyone there was or has experienced the same things I have in my life. Basically I did not go thee searching for answers as much as I did looking for liked minded individuals who actually talk to real ghosts as I do.

Many of you do not realize what it is like to converse with the dead. It takes it's toll on you as well as it often leaves you with more questions then answers as well as feelings of need to connect with others that can truly understand you or your encounters.

Spititualism and those followers of it are in my book very cool to converse with. I love their pledge and their nine standards. I love the Golden Rule I wish more Ghost hunting groups would come together as these indivduals did. ALSO SEE: Espiritismo: Real Answers From the Dead

Ever since I learned of The Cassadaga Psychics back in reading "The Psychic Mafia" I always wanted to visit the location to find out the truth for myself about this place where ghosts and psychic phenomena is supposedly truly unleashed.

I often preach to those that will listen no two ghost encounters are ever the same. And I was quite shaken by my recent visit to Aokigahara Forest, Japan. PLEASE READ MORE HERE NOW: "THE MOST HAUNTED FOREST AND HOT SPOT IN THE ASIAN WORLD!" For you should understand I have never been taken over by a spirit like that before in my life and I purely wanted To really understand what had really happened to me.

A 10 minute documentary about the small town in central Florida.

Cassadaga: A Documentary

The true Cassadaga community is a more then just interesting, rural and unusually hilly part of Florida. The ENTIRE area is ablaze with psychic energies. the comings and goings of actual spirits to this area makes it the United States Mecca and Summer home to many traveling ghosts. The actual psychic camp was originally founded by spiritualists in the 19th century and is still going strong today.

Cassadaga (a Seneca Indian word meaning "Water beneath the rocks") is a small unincorporated community located in Volusia County, Florida, just north of Deltona. It is especially known for having a possibly the largest number of psychics, also known as Mediums in one place, and as such, has been named the "Psychic Capital of the World".

There is a bookstore in the center of town that is where visitors may shop and learn about spiritualism and where I went obtain a reading with a certified medium. Which I was so glad to visit and converse with my experience with becoming fully taken over by the ghost of a japanese man in the forest of death.

The Cassadaga Spiritualist camp began when the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association was founded by George P. Colby, from Pike, New York, a trance medium who traveled to many different states, giving readings and Séances. He was well known, and in his travels, Colby was referred to as the "seer of spiritualism". Mr. Colby attended summer Spiritualist Camp meetings at Lily Dale, New York, the town adjacent to Cassadaga, New York.

Mr. Colby worked with several spirit guides, who would channel knowledge to him. One of his guides was an Indian named Seneca, that had manifested to Colby during a Séances in Lake Mills, Iowa. According to Colby, the guide Seneca had instructed him to travel to the south, into Florida, where he eventually arrived at a place called the Blue Springs Landing, near Orange City, Florida. According to Colby, the area that Seneca had lead him to was the same area that Colby had seen during the Séances in Iowa.

Colby had arrived in Florida in 1875, and several decades later, on the 18th of December, 1894 the charter was granted to form The Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association. Later on January 3, 1895 Colby had signed a warranty deed to the Association for thirty-five acres. The people who came to the Spiritualist Camp in the early days of its formation were affluent and well educated. The Cassadaga Spiritualist camp was named after the small Spiritualist Camp community found outside of Lily Dale, New York. The Spiritualist Camp Association later received additional acreage that expanded the camp to the current fifty-seven acres.


In speaking with the many people I met there I learned that Cassadaga has a very respectable level of teaching techniques and awareness through it's school that will make you more familiar with many psychic tools and specializes trans mediumship and open communications with the dead that haunt us.

I did get a reading from a resident medium that was just more then just OK. I am a practicing Necromancer as many of you are aware of and I've had a lot of contact with disembodied voices and apparitions in my life. Also for the fact that I do openly hunt for real ghosts with many paranormal groups around the world I was taken aback because so many here in this hot Florida town,still practice the teachings of the Victorian era Séances.

I had a wonderful long tarot card reading at one of the shops the camp by a psychic names Sage, and my dearest friend Julie Hough had excellent Astrological, Crystal ball, past life regressions, and palm reading from a man named Bob. who told her many things about someone she really has her eye on. You can find here in Cassadaga many ways to discern the future or communicate with someone who has crossed over.

Today, the Camp features the Cassadaga Hotel, a central auditorium, The Colby Memorial Temple, a community library, the Caesar Forman Healing Center, a Camp Bookstore, and a welcome center. Also, there is the Andrew Jackson Davis building, used for musical performances and gatherings, and the annual Cassadaga Masquerade Ball.

The principles of spirituality that are taught by the people at Cassadaga state, "Spiritualism has no dogma or creed, just a simple set of nine principles to help guide our lives". According to the teachings of Spiritualism, it is the "Science, philosophy, and religion based upon the principle of continuous life". In March 14, 1991, the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist camp was declared a U.S. Historic District. The Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp is a federal tax-exempt Church currently governed by a Board of Trustees.

I did not have the great pleasure or opportunity to sit in a real haunted Cassadaga Séances, and I will do that the next time I visit and there, will be a next time. I really want to explore the location out more before I make any claims or disputes. I want to meet more people and get to know them more before I make any assumptions. I want to investigate table tapping to the ghost hunting extreme. I also want to ask something of these Florida ghost deeper then if there is beer in heavean. like Weird USA asked.


There are at least one hundred or more note worthy Devil's Chairs located in cemeteries in the United States, associated with urban legends. The Devil's Chair in Cassadaga, Florida is a graveside bench in the cemetery that borders Cassadaga and Lake Helen. Local legend perpetuates the Devil-as-good-ol'-boy image: one of the stories insists that if you leave an unopened can of beer on the chair, it will be empty by morning. Accounts vary; in some of them, the can's opened, in others, the beer is simply gone, like magic, through the unopened top. Furthermore, if you yourself sit in the chair, you run the chance of having a heart-to-heart with the Prince of Darkness, who is rumored to show up anyone who dares to wait for him there. Please read more about the devils many chairs and thrones"The Devil's Chair" here now.
