Getting Help

I do not have conventional TV around the house – my cable is for internet alone – so, if I want to watch paranormal TV shows, I have to find them online.  Recently, I’ve made my w…

The Physical Body: Why is it so important?

•August 12, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Monsters and Magic

There is a tendency in ‘spiritual’ circles to fall into a fallacy about the physical body. The thinking goes something like this: I am a spiritual being having a physical experience; therefore, if I could just shuck this body, I could be a more spiritual person. I was, in the past, involved with a group that actually expressed this as the spirit, that part of us which is a part of the All, being trapped or imprisoned in the body. Our goal then was to set aside the physical as much a possible and pay close attention to the spiritual. This tendency to try to disregard the body is especially strong in the Abrahamic religions where this thinking was taken to ridiculous extremes (and may still be) of asceticism and mortification of the flesh.

I could go on about why this state of affairs has come to pass but I…

The Evocation of Anger

Monsters and Magic

I had the misfortune recently to finally come down with some sort of upper respiratory plague. I do not get sick very often but, when I do, I do it well and I am not a believer in ‘toughing it out’ unless there is a compelling reason to do so. Instead, I took a couple of days off of work and watched some TV when I was not napping.

Of course, that television had to include some paranormal shows. I had the opportunity to watch several episodes of “Monster and Mysteries in America’ which I found campy and amusing and one of the ghost shows that I had not seen before. I am not going to name the show but, as with other paranormal investigation shows that I have watched, there was a whole lot of anger going on.


Now, I have given my opinion of ‘provoking’ tactics in a…

Re-Blog: Tulpas, Thoughtforms and Monsters, Oh My!

•June 30, 2016 • 2 Comments

Monsters and Magic

John_William_Waterhouse_-_Magic_CircleThis is a blog that I wrote back in 2013 but, given some of the rumblings about thought forms I have been hearing on-line, I thought this was a good time to re-post it.  

I am an inveterate podcast listener. The job that puts bread on the table can, at times, be very repetitive, requiring little in the way of thought, so I often spice up my day by listening to one or the other of the paranormal podcasts on the Web. The other day I was listening to an interview with the noted paranormal author, Nick Redfern and the discussion turned to the place of tulpas in monster lore. I realized, as I listened to this show, that while I had referred to these beings obliquely in some of my posts, I have not dedicated a post to this subject.

First off, a point of definition. In my…

Everything and Nothing

•June 28, 2016 • Leave a Comment

​This thought of nothing and everything and just the conscious act of noticing it, makes it reality. I approach it from the angle of, what was before the beginning, the big bang, the all of creation by God or aliens or…the emptiness or nothing of before anything no matter who or what started it. Was there a true nothing or is that a real “place” as well just because it can be thought about if not understood? We do know that in the quantum world, an object observed is an object changed or forced into a choice. So our awareness of a thing, creates it, micro moment by micro moment There is nothing real because it is ever evolving and at the same time all is real because we make it so by perception….consciousness. We don’t have the tools for the job…we are attempting to use three dimensional, physical machines to detect “nothing” or everything. Can’t find the nothing for all the everything that’s in the way.

The Tulip Staircase Ghost (1966)

“Rev. Ralph Hardy, a retired clergyman from White Rock, British Columbia, took this now-famous photograph in 1966. He intended merely to photograph the elegant spiral staircase (known as the “Tulip Staircase”) in the Queen’s House section of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. Upon development, however, the photo revealed a shrouded figure climbing the stairs, seeming to hold the railing with both hands. Experts, including some from Kodak, who examined the original negative concluded that it had not been tampered with. It’s been said that unexplained figures have been seen on occasion in the vicinity of the staircase, and unexplained footsteps have also been heard.” (

The above photo is one of my favorite anomalous pictures. There is something so melancholy, so desperate, so tragic in this figure’s abandoned gesture. If we are to take this as a true representation of a…

The Power of Thoughts in the Paranormal World

•May 6, 2016 • Leave a Comment


Julie was intuitive and could feel the energy long before she walked into the haunted building. Someone told her that the entity might be demonic, so she steeled herself, trying to work up the nerve to go inside. She knew that demons weren’t something she should mess with, but she was excited to experience it firsthand. She just hoped it wouldn’t hurt her.

Does this scenario sound familiar? As more and more people delve into the world of the paranormal, they often find themselves in situations they aren’t prepared to handle. I experienced this first hand when I investigated a location that was known to have negative energy. I ended up with a negative attachment that stuck with me for months and was the subject of my book The Soul Collector.

Most people aren’t aware of how powerful their thoughts are. Just thinking something fuels it with power and…
