A Midwest Haunting:

Lost In The Paranormal Zone! My Haunted Life...

Maybe the ghosts of Macomb have more to say to us than we realize!

A Real Haunted Life

My interest in the world of all that is strange and of what many call today the paranormal zone, began with me personally at a very young tender and innocent age. One night my father sat at the kitchen table in our home questioning his faith in God and in christianity. He prayed very long and hard. He needed an answer to south his burning internal pain and torture. This went on for what must have seemed an eternity to him, After some time receiving no signs or concrete proof before him is when finally he cried out, "Satan if your real show me some kind of sign that you are!!"

Nothing happened or so he thought! I was only four or five years old at the time and sleeping in the bedroom next to my mom. I really don't know what actually occurred that night, but from the recounting of the story for I was to young or just not me.

My dad said he heard a strange odd noise a few moments after his query. He got up from the table to investigate... a bit shaken I suppose, and upon opening the door to the bedroom he saw me with a glass vase in one hand gripping with a strong hold of my moms hair.

My eyes were completely blood red and strange, it is what he noted at just a quick glance. For inside him he knew of course it was his demand being answered by the devil himself.

He yelled very loud breaking the silence "In the name of God in Heaven leave my son alone." As the very words left his mouth my body fell with a force as if something otherworldly heard him. My dad recounts that I seemed as if I just passed out, and began convulsing wildly next to my mom on the bed.

They rushed to phone and called the emergency room which is where I came too. Both of my parents said after all this I was a normal happy child again. I have no real actual recollection of this event to this very day. But I was forever aware that I was now conscious of myself and somehow changed.

Normal is the last word I would use to describe my life since that point in the emergency room. From the age of 11 to 33, I pursued a path of intense self destruction using alcohol and drugs for my personal instant gratification. I believed in the supernatural and the Great power of God, but not enough to turn my life over to something positive. My great trials and tribulations were always levels of temptation and almost always coincidental encounters bordering on the strange.

The great despair and overly powerful feeling in my life was that none knew but me. I felt between two worlds. One of the living and one of the dead. What truly mattered to me was trying to numb myself or keep myself from remembering what had happened. I know that night that it had a greater hold on me then I could imagine and deep in my mind something very evil had left it's great mark upon me and I was always afraid it might take me over again. And it wanted to destroy me just to prove something to my dad. The more I hurt myself the more I hurt all those around me.

Finally at the age of 33 I'd had, had more then enough .I knew I couldn't go on. So I cleaned up and now have had almost 4 years of sobriety, my own business and a beautiful wife and daughter.

My wife introduced me to Haunted Macomb tours, The original Ghost Tour that t was started by Garret Moffett, which I now own and have renamed a Midwest Haunting. I guess from tortured life I knew what lost spirits went through and could definitely relate to them. I think many of them, (the poor lost ghosts souls or spirits) are all trying to find the defining moment where they became lost. Some search for the reason, others the exact time. From the life I had lived I see that and have an affinity to understand their plight. I guess I was a living ghost at one point!

Tim Weaver The Real Ghost Man of Macomb, Owner of A Midwest Haunting

And once I was clean I began searching for ghosts and exploring the supernatural. Through several years of paranormal investigation of the buildings's in downtown Macomb, IL I have experienced so much activity it seems incredible.

One evening last year while inside the abandoned Haunted Lamoine Hotel, I sent a man down a dark hallway while several people took pictures behind him. All of them noticed that on their camera screens the hallway showed up to the end. What showed up in none of their photos was my volunteer standing five feet in front of them with his beeping EMF detector. I could go on for hours of phenomena that has occurred on our tours. Allot of people claim that they see haunting shadows and orbs with their normal sight.

Various members of the tour groups often managed to locate "ghosts" using divining rods, and emf detectors, which move and react when paranormal activity is present. Their or often stories about someone's arm being scratched by ghosts or being touched or even whispered to by many that take my tour.

These ghosts supposedly live in the Macomb Courthouse and the abandoned hotel above the Macomb Journal. The story is they haunt these locations because some sort of event occurred there during their lives that kept them attached to that place, even in death.

Were preparing to kick off our 7th successful year. We've been featured in Midwest Living magazine and on and on countless TV news channels and newspapers. Last year we had over 1800 people from Minnesota, Indiana, Chicago, St. Louis and everywhere in between take the ghost tours. And believe me this is the real deal!

Cameras and video are totally welcome on all tours. PLEASE bring flashlights but for most of the tour we will ask you keep them off and only use them for safety purposes There's no telling what you will find on the tour this year!

After years of turning skeptics into believers, I extend to you the opportunity to join us for a two hour investigation of our haunted past.

Since most of the buildings we investigate are dark and vision is limited we encourage you to Bring Flashlights!

We ask that due to the graphic nature of true paranormal phenomena minors under 16 are accompanied by adults.

Remember, This is not a haunted house. No one will jump out and yell Boo!! What happens here is not staged. Real Ghosts don't appear only on Halloween. Since most apparitions appear on camera we encourage that you bring a camera or video camera. We will post your photos on our web site!! The most important tool you can bring is your open mind. This will allow us to stretch your senses deep into the world of the unknown.
