Those of us who today swear
by our open supernatural beliefs hold that
such occurrences exist, whereas de bunkers
argue that there are natural, physical normal
explanations for all such occurrences. Concepts
in the supernatural domain are closely related
to concepts in religious spirituality and
occultism or spiritualism. The term "supernatural"
is often used interchangeably with paranormal
or preternatural — the latter typically
limited to an adjective for describing abilities
which appear to exceed the bounds of possibility.
Likewise, legendary characters such as ghosts,
banshee's, zombies, vampires, poltergeists,
fairies and leprechauns, werewolves, el Chupacabra's
and even bigfoot and the yeti and host of
other cryptids would be considered supernatural
creatures. And many of such to have

and those that read then are believed to have
Many claims of supernatural
powers have also been attributed to living
humans through out the centuries, from the
powers of Catholic Saints, Witch Doctors,
Mediums, Voodoo Chiefs and Practioners, Witches,
psychics, Tarot Card readers and even as of
today indigo or psychic children. Gypsies
were considered a race of Supernaturally in
touch individuals who could tell the future
divine the dead and place or remove curses.
Also mystical items are
attributed with great supernatural powers
from the other world, Tarot Cards, Ouija Boards,
Crystal balls, Talismans, amulets and Runes.
A seance is basically using
supernatural powers to contact a dead soul
or spiritual force to communicate and learn
secrets or answers to your questions.
How to summon
the supernatural beings
Begin by joining hands with the people on
either side of you and closing your eyes.
Depending on your religious beliefs, you
(or the medium) might want to say a short
invocation or divine blessing before going
further, just in case.
Then the medium should lead everyone in a
deep breathing exercise by instructing them
to breathe in slowly through the nose . .
. and out slowly through the mouth, while
trying to keep their minds blank. The goal
is to get everyone calm, comfortable, and
in touch with their senses.
After a few minutes of this, the medium should
ask everyone to say these words together:
"Our beloved [name of spirit], we ask
that you commune with us and move among us."
Repeat the chant until there is a response.
A response can take the form of a sudden
decrease in room temperature, a slight ache
in the area that caused the spirit's death
(for example, if the deceased died from a
heart attack, séance participants might
feel a subtle pain in their chest), or a rapping
If after awhile there is no response, the
medium can add to the chant: "If you
are with us, [name of spirit], please rap
After receiving confirmation that you are,
indeed, chatting with the dead (don't scream
or you might scare Nana away!) make sure that
it really is Nana you're talking to by establishing
a "one rap = yes, two raps = no"
system and asking her yes-or-no questions
that only she would know the answers to. If
you discover that it's actually not Nana you're
speaking to, don't panic - the spirit might
still be a friendly and helpful (though confused)
one. Figure out what type of ghost you have
on your hands and go from there.
If the spirit gives you creepy responses
("When will I die?" . . . "Today!")
or starts to knock furniture over and toss
vases across the room, quickly tell it to
go in peace, break the circle of hands, extinguish
the candles, and turn on the lights.
Otherwise, continue to ask yes-or-no questions.
Don't ask more than one question at a time
and never tease the spirit, unless you actually
want a peeved ghost to haunt your house forever.
For some reason, spirits are usually very
sensitive and don't take jokes very well,
so save your playful ribbing for the living.
If the séance is going well (the participants
aren't fainting, the medium's head isn't spinning
360 degrees, and the ghost seems happy to
talk), the medium can invite the ghost into
his/her body to answer questions more fully.
If, for any reason, things start to get out
of control and the medium can't seem to handle
it (look for spastic movements - you don't
have to wait until green gunk starts spewing
from the medium's mouth to decide that he/she
can't handle it), have a designated pinch-hitter.
Command the participant to quickly tell the
spirit to go in peace, break the circle of
hands, extinguish the candles, and turn on
After you're done with all your questioning,
end the séance by thanking the spirit
for its time and telling it to go in peace.
If you don't thank the spirit, it may feel
miffed by your lack of manners and refuse
to come when you try to call it again in the
future. Worse yet, it may tell all its buddies
about your unfortunate upbringing and no ghost
will want to visit you. And if you don't tell
the spirit to go, it might see that as an
invitation to stay awhile, at which point
we'd recommend for you to move - so make sure
you get that goodbye in. Then break the circle,
extinguish the candles, and turn on the lights.
Look around the table and make sure all the
participants are fully conscious.
Record the events of the séance immediately
(on paper if you weren't already taping it).
Have each participant write down his/her point
of view. If you plan on holding séances
regularly, a séance log will help you
remember all the little details of what occurred
during each meeting. You'll be surprised at
how dreamlike the experience will seem after
you have a good night's rest and wake up with
the sun blazing in your face. The log will
serve as proof that you not only managed to
talk to a ghost, but several other people
were there to witness it.
Distinct from nature some
weird or strange events occur according to
natural laws, and others occur according to
a separate set of principles external to nature
A higher nature Others assert that God, miracles,
or other putative supernatural events are
real, verifiable, and part of the laws of
nature that we do not yet understand. A human
coping mechanism Others believe that all events
have natural and only natural causes. They
believe that human beings ascribe supernatural
attributes to purely natural events (eg. Lightning,
Rainbows, Floods, the Origin of Life).
Magic: Many people have sought to use both
magic and science in hopes of empowering humanity
for improvement and to achieve a clearer picture
of humanity's place in the cosmos Before the
scientific method was used, everything was
believed to have a supernatural cause. "Supernatural"
today is in this sense merely used as an inspiration
for more scientific knowledge, or illusions
that stem from the human mind's interpretation
of their own personal reality.
The preternatural or praeternatural is that
which appears outside or beyond (Latin præter)
the natural. While this may include what is
more commonly called the supernatural, it
may also simply indicate extremity —
an ordinary phenomenon taken 'beyond' the
natural. One may have, for example, a preternatural
desire, a preternatural curiosity, a preternaturally
acute ear (sense of hearing), or even preternaturally
Often used to distinguish from the divine
(supernatural) while maintaining a distinction
from the purely natural. For instance, in
theology, the angels, both holy and fallen,
are endowed with preternatural powers. Their
intellect, speed, and other characteristics
are beyond human capacities but are still
finite. Other examples of preternatural creatures
include fairies, werewolves, vampires, zombies,
and the Chupacabra.

|Twenty-two years ago Sam (series star
JARED PADALECKI) and Dean (series star
JENSEN ACKLES) Winchester lost their
mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural
force. As a result their father John
(recurring guest star JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN
- "Grey's Anatomy") raised
the brothers to be soldiers. He taught
them about the paranormal evil that
lives in the dark corners and on the
back roads of America...and he taught
them how to kill it. Sam however wanted
nothing to do with this violent and
dangerous life and he left it behind
until the day Dean appeared on his doorstep
with troubling news. Their father had
gone missing on a "hunting trip."
Sam and Dean have spent the last year
cruising the highways of the United
States in their 1967 Chevy Impala searching
for their lost father and encountering
creatures that most people believe exist
only in folklore superstition and nightmares.
Along the way they have battled the
various supernatural threats--and each
other as well for their sibling rivalries
and conflicts were never far from the
surface. Finally they found their father
just as he was closing in on the Demon
who claimed their mother
The plot of the series has evolved over time,
beginning initially with the Winchester brothers,
Sam and Dean, looking for their father throughout
most of season one. Once they find him, the
show becomes about killing Azazel, the yellow-eyed
demon responsible for the death of their mother.
This is accomplished, but not until after
Azazel's plans are completed and a door to
Hell is opened, although only momentarily,
releasing a horde of demons into the world.
This event also sees the death of Sam, who
is subsequently resurrected by Dean selling
his soul at the end of season two. In the
third season, the plot of the show focuses
on trying to save Dean from his deal. Along
the way, they meet a demon named Ruby, who
has an interest in Sam and claims to be able
to help save Dean, as well as Bela Talbot,
an "acquirer" and seller of occult
objects who is constantly a thorn in their
side. The brothers eventually manage to track
down the demon who holds Dean's contract,
a powerhouse named Lilith who also wants Sam
dead. However, Sam and Ruby ultimately fail
to save Dean, who is killed and sent to Hell.
Season four begins with Dean, miraculously
returning from Hell, awakening dazed and confused
in a grave. He was apparently rescued by a
supposed angel named Castiel on orders from
God. Sam on the other hand, has further developed
his abilities with the help of Ruby during
the months that Dean has been dead. It is
soon revealed that Dean was revived to help
stop Lilith's plan of breaking the 66 seals,
which would let Lucifer walk free once again.

|The yellow-eyed demon is vanquished,
but at a terrible price. The battle
that brought him down released hundreds
of demons from Hell into an unsuspecting
world. And it cost Sam his life. But
a grief-stricken Dean made a deal with
the Crossroad Demon – his soul
for Sam's resurrection. Now Dean has
just one year to live. One year to fight
the unholy, the twisted, the ghoulish.
One year to say farewell to Sam. And
one year for Sam to search desperately
for some way to save his brother. Mind-bending
adventure awaits as the Winchester brothers
continue their astonishing odyssey into
the supernatural...and their personal
odyssey into destiny.
