    Paranormal Investigation Ghost Photos

    I recently interviewed paranormal investigators Beth O’Brien and Michael Brown on my Terra Signals podcast. In part one of our conversations, we reviewed some of their best audio evidence, known as EVP (electronic voice phenomenon).

    During the second part, we looked at a series of ghost photos they captured during their investigations into Fort Mifflin and an abandoned summer camp in New Jersey.

    In Pursuit of the REAL Men in Black

    I returned to the Mysteries of Space and Sky conference in November 2022 to give another presentation on my latest research into the real Men in Black.

    “Back to Black: In Pursuit of the MIB (and other Non-Human Entities” is the title of the talk that I delivered that day to an audience in Gambrills, Maryland. And for those who missed it, you can now watch it on YouTube.

    Have you ever met with MIB or had an otherwise strange experience involving strange individuals? If so, let’s chat!

    The Blondes, the Ghosts, the MIB, and Me

    Recently, I sat down for a “fireside chat” with Sara and Deedee from Paranormally Blonde to talk about all things high strangeness, including ghosts, UFOs, MIB, and more. Watch my video interview with them here…

    What is interesting about this interview is one of the viewer comments at the very start of the show. Taryn Kerper, the host of The Paranormal Brew, wrote that after her last interview with me, she saw something that looked like an entity straight out of the show American Horror Story.

    Afterward, I reached out to Taryn to get more details on what she encountered. Here is what she wrote to me…

    A Survey of Strange Phone Calls

    Are you an experiencer who received a strange phone call? Recently, the host of Deb’s Data Dojo surveyed her Twitter followers, asking them if they ever received strange phone calls. 54 people voted on one of four choices. The results were as follows…

    5 people chose “Non-Human/ET ‘others'”
    5 people chose “Government/MIB”
    18 people chose “Unknown but strange”
    26 people chose “Just noise”

    Now the fact that anyone received anything remotely strange over the phone piques my curiosity. After covering the Gary Sudbrink case for quite some time, I’ve always wondered if this phenomenon might be more widespread than I initially thought. If something to that extent happened to just one person, I would imagine there is a greater likelihood it has also happened to others.

    Some of the individual responses to Deb’s survey were also very interesting…

    The Subtleties of Paranormal Experiences

    Strange experiences happen when we least expect them to happen.

    I’ve asked my mother to contribute an article detailing her apparition sighting. I remember hearing about it shortly after, encouraging her to draw a simple sketch of what she saw. Those who know me know that I encourage anyone with a remarkable encounter to record it as soon as possible. That way, you can be sure of the details later on since memories are fallible and tend to fade over time. But I thought this story would be good to share with you since not only did the experience leave a lasting impression on her, but it also highlights the subtlety of such experiences when they occur.

    MY ENCOUNTER – Oct. 27, 2021

    By Margie G.
    Contributor to Normal Paranormal

    6:45 am—alarm goes off. My day begins with a cup of coffee and taking a moment to listen to the news, then on to getting ready to go to work. Yes, work, my job. I clean homes which I have been doing for close to 30 years now. At one point, I had between 15–20 homes a month when I first began. Yes, it was busy, and yet it gave me a reason to get up and move my aging bones. Now, I have only about five, which are faithful to me, and I appreciate each and every one of them.

    Moving the Haunted Annabelle Doll

    Never, ever move the haunted Annabelle doll out of her glass case. Or, as it is written more explicitly on the sign beneath her: WARNING. POSITIVELY DO NOT OPEN.

    This sign echoed the sentiments of the late Ed and Lorraine Warren. They cautioned people never to underestimate the evil power that such an innocent-looking Raggedy Ann doll could wield. There it remained for decades, entombed in its clear coffin and housed within the Warren occult museum after being confiscated from two young nurses in the 1970s. Or at least the story goes.

    Even today, some people have reported strange experiences after meeting the doll first-hand.

    Scrolling through my YouTube subscriptions, I came across a video courtesy of Tony Spera of the New England Society for Psychic Research (NESPR). It was titled “Moving the Annabelle Doll.”

    The Third Man Factor

    The phenomenon known as “the third man factor” is truly remarkable. And its bizarre occurrence seems to parallel what my good friend Maxim W. Furek chronicled in his book Sheppton: The Myth, Miracle & Music. After I passed this along to him, he was inspired to dive deeper and write something that I think you will find just as fascinating. –Justin

    Davey Fellin and The Third Man Factor

    By Maxim W. Furek
    Contributor to Normal Paranormal

    In 1963, the entire world was gripped by the human drama unfolding in a  remote Pennsylvania coal mine.

    After being rescued from the Sheppton mine, Davey Fellin testified that Pope John XXIII was with him and Hank Throne during their two-week ordeal. But what the miners saw has been at the center of ongoing controversy. The Pope’s specter has been alternately described as both a miracle, as attested to by Vatican scholars, as well as a collective hallucination.

    But could there be other theories to explain the Pope’s ghostly visitation, and, if so, what might those look like?
