Gus the friendly ghost.

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

August 23, 2014

Our latest investigation took us once again to Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island, WA, where we met with the client. They had met Gus, a child spirit, through previous numerous Ouija board sessions. He and another spirit named Ray were very active on the Ouija board during the investigation. They also surprised us with some incredible EVP’s, which also included a clear female voice.

Early on in the investigation, a light anomaly flows from right to left.

A spirit asks us to Put the light on.

While all was quiet, we asked Gus to do something to let us know that he was with us. Little did we know that he would startle all of us by banging loudly on the wall. In this clip, you will hear a couple of bangs, faint voices, and then a loud knocking/banging in the form of “Shave and a haircut”. It shook the walls and the floor!

One of our new members, Keith, asked Gus to speak through the “Ghost Speaker”, a phone app. A playful spirit obliges with an unexpected response through the Ghost Speaker. Was this Gus?

During a Ghost Box session, a male voice comes through that is not English. It sounds like a native american language or dialect. What do you think?

Gus is asked to move something, and responds immediately by slightly opening a kitchen cupboard door and letting it close.

The client asks Gus to give us some more clues about him. Another male spirit (Ray?) responds with a demand to let Gus think of one (clue). Let him think of one. Here is an enhanced version of the response.

Out of the blue, a female voice says I'm sure something is happening. Here is an enhanced version.

Another light anomaly appears during an Ouija board session. Watch the right part of the video frame.

 

 

A note of special thanks.

We want to thank our client for allowing us into their home and for their wonderful hospitality. For us, it was an incredible investigation. Not only did we capture some amazing evidence, but we experienced and learned about positive spirit communication through the Ouija board.

 

Senior Moments

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

October 5, 2013

This investigation in Burlington, WA in early October was interesting. The Ovilus II was quite active and we managed to capture several “senior moments” on our recorders.

We would like to sincerely thank the clients for allowing us to investigate. My hope is that we brought them (and the resident spirits) some peace of mind.

-Paul Kelly

A man named Walt Redfern came forward and identified himself. After some research, we find Walter W. Redfern (age 9) living in Mount Vernon, Washington, in the 1930 Census. We also discovered that Walt was a big WWI aviation buff who had built no less than 15 replicas of WWI airplanes. He was inducted into the World War I Aviation Hall of Fame in 1992. Walt Redfern

An elderly woman talks about someone or something “at the airport”. Is she referring to Walt Redfern, the avaition buff?

At the airport.

During a ghost-box session, we receive a female name “Diedre”.

Diedre. It is spoken by two spirits, a male first, then a female.

During the same ghost-box session, Lori asks if there is a Thelma present.

Is Thelma here?.....Nope!

A spirit who identifies himself as “Grandpa”, tells the neighborhood cat to “shuh up!” We did not hear this at the time it occurred.

It’s Grandpa….Shush up!

An elderly woman mumbles Your just never ending…(about the ?)…cat Is she talking about Grandpa’s comments to the cat? We did not hear this at the time it occurred.

An elderly woman speaks fondly of where she is.

A good place.

The question is asked “Are you here all the time?” The Ovilus II responds.

All.

Noisy Spirits

December 6, 2012

A recent investigation of a downtown Mount Vernon office building revealed some interesting activity.
All three of us (Paul, Carmen and Lori) were sitting in the same room when we heard the sound of an empty water bottle being moved accross the wooden floor. A nearby digital audio recorder captured the event. This movement happened at the opposite end of the hallway, so we did not see it take place,but we all heard it.. A photo of the bottles was taken (as they were found) after the sound was heard.
Empty water bottles



Later on in the investigation, this sound was captured on our recorders. Not sure what it was, but none of the investigators made that sound.



We decided to use the Ovilus II, an experimental device which contains a list of 2,080 words. Among the words the device emitted was the word mustard. We asked about the possible signifigance of this and we were informed that the walls of one of the offices had indeed been painted a mustard color.


Lori and Paul conducted a flashlight session in the hallway. The flashlights continued to turn on and off during the course of the investigation.




Both flashlights at the same time.


Whistling spirits at Northern State

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

12/2/2011
While on a recent short investigation at the Northern State horse stables building, I captured a response to a request. I was attempting to elicit a response by whistling. I did not hear it at the time. The first clip is the unmodified version. The second is just the response, with noise removed and slightly amplified.

Clip 1


Clip 2

Oddly enough, that same night at about 2:30 AM, Lori and the cat were awoken by the sound of someone whistling. (But at 2:30 AM?) She thought it was coming from outside in the street, so she raised the blinds, looked out, and saw no one there.

Weird….. Perhaps the whistling spirit hitched a ride on the way home from the investigation?

Ghost box session at Northern State farm area.

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Back in September, we invited guest John Ryan to an impromptu investigation of Northern State farm area in Sedro Woolley. In this clip, John introduces himself and at the end, you will hear a voice quickly say “Hey, Johnny!“.

Manresa Castle

Manressa Castle

Lori and I decided to give ourselves a mini-vacation. We wanted to simply get away for a few days and enjoy ourselves. At the VERY last minute, we decided to take a trip to Port Townsend. We were not dissapointed with our choice. She had all the shopping she could handle (and a LOT MORE than I could handle!), the weather was great, the scenery was great, the food and beer were superb, AND….we had an opportunity to investigate Manresa Castle!

We stayed at the castle for two nights in room 302, the top room (3rd floor) of the turret, to the far right. Our stay there was very relaxing and anjoyable. We will definitely be back!

The Investigation: Ghost Box Session
We ran digital audio and video recorders for several hours in room 302. While we are still reviewing evidence of our investigation, so far the most compelling evidence is from our short 15 minute ghost box session. After having no apparent success with just our recorders, we decided to try the ghost box. Almost immediately after the radio was turned on, a spirit asks “How is it different this time, Paul?“.

One of the purported legends of the Castle is that a Jesuit priest hung himself in the attic of the turret, just above room 302. Not being convinced one way or the other of the veracity of this story, I decided to ask the question anyway: “Why did you hang yourself?” There was a response through the radio, but it is not completely clear was is being said. I think there are at least two voices here. “Reggie...We're all just afraid...he's black....because I'm black (undecipherable words)“. Granted, the voices are not very clear and the words are not altogether decipherable, but interesting, nonetheless.

As we continued our ghost box session in room 302, yet more voices came through the radio. This next clip absoltely convinced me that these voices were NOT from a broadcast booth of a radio station, nor were they voices from hotel guests across the hall from us in room 304: the voices absolutely came from the radio. You will hear “Those bastards!...I can't sleep...not with that f*&^ing dog!“. There was no dog barking outside. It was quiet except for the radio. And it’s a hefty fine for profanity over the airwaves…

I wanted a more direct response from whoever might be communicating with us, and I got one. I asked the spirits to say hello to us. The response is a very quick “Hey, Paul.“.

Evelyn’s Tavern: Spirits At The Bar

May 16, 2011
We want to sincerely thank Jan and Alex for allowing us to investigate Evelyn’s Tavern, located in Clear Lake, WA.
Spirits (of the non-alcoholic kind ;-)) were present and made themselves known to us via flashlight activity. After review of numerous hours of audio, we also discovered some quite compelling EVP evidence. Just this evening, I discovered these two EVP’s which were captured only on Carmen’s recorder.

1. What’s the order?
During the first 15 minutes of the investigation, the phone at the bar rings. On the fourth ring, a deep male voice shouts “What's the order?“.

After that, there appears to be a whispering voice which quickly says “It's eating time. It's three o'clock.“. I have slowed it down a bit so it is easier to hear. Listen carefully again to the end of the clip above, and then listen to this clip.

Here is a shortened and enhanced version of “What’s the order?” . I have removed the loud phone ringing so it’s easier to hear the voice underneath. There is an initial “whooshing” sound which appears to contain a voice which says “Hey, guys!”. Then you hear a thump, followed by “What’s the order?”. “What's the order?“.

2. I’ll grab some glasses.
As Lori is exiting the restroom, Carmen asks “Anybody wanna party with us?” A response from a female spirit says “I'll grab some glasses.“.

3. KII activity
Carmen asks the spirit “Are you still with us?…Are you on break?” The KII responds.

4. Flashlight activity.
During the investigation, we decided to set out our flashlights just in case the spirits decided to communicate with them. They didn’t disappoint us.

EVP’s with the RT-EVP digital recorder

Monday, March 21st, 2011

On the night of March 19th, 2011 (the super “perigee moon” – the biggest in almost 20 years), I visited Union Cemetery (Sedro Woolley) to do an EVP session. This time, I had only the RT-EVP recorder with me, our newest addition to our collection of devices.

While standing on the path in the north section of the cemetery, I thought I heard some voices play back through the recorder, but was uncertain of what what being said. The voices were very faint.

1. At about 21 minutes into the recording session, this sequence of voices is recorded.

The first voice is uncertain. The next voice sounds like a boy shouting “Hi! Let's play!.......HELLO?“.

2. Just 3 minutes later, I was again summoned to play.

Here is the clip, un-filtered and un-enhanced.
original“.

Here is the same clip filtered and greatly enhanced.
It is unclear what the first few words are. “Paul.??? Come back???......with us....???....PAUL!.....Come back and play!“.

2. On the way back to the south end of the cemetery, my recorder picked up on this spirit who said to me
Hello there!........Paul?

Here is that same clip, enhanced.
Hello there!........Paul?

Night At The Museum: Act II, February 19, 2011

Friday, March 4th, 2011
Sedro Woolley Museum

Sedro Woolley Museum

Ghost Seekers Realm extends a big “Thank you!” to Carolyn and all the Board Members of the Sedro Woolley Museum for allowing us to investigate for a second night, February 19. As always, I was skeptical, but after reviewing several hours of audio we discovered some very compelling evidence.

We captured some very interesting responses during our ghost box session and also captured some EVP’s.

1. This “Hello?” was captured on Lori’s recorder. “Hello!“.

2. During our ghost box session, we began asking for names. This one is quite clear. “Doreen“.

3. The next one occured just about a minute later. Lori asks the spirit to repeat the name and he does so. “Doreen“.

4. At one point during the ghost box session, I asked the spirits to speak their names loudly and clearly. We received a response immediately after i finished speaking. “Ed

5. This “Hello?” sounds as if it has a British accent. It occurred during the ghost box session.
Hello?

6. Uncertain if the spirits heard her voice, Lori says “Hello?” A female spirit reponds in kind through the radio. “Hi!

7. This ghost box response was not heard until later. A little bit of filtering and enhancement was necessary to hear it well enough. “My name is Howard.

8. Carmen’s digital recorder was sitting on a glass case when this response to my question was captured. I was the only male in the building. I asked “Do you want us to get out again? Do you want us to leave now?” I enhanced the response. I've been meaning to tell you.
Here is just the response, enahanced a bit more. I've been meaning to tell you.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
After re-listening to the original audio, I discovered something today that I missed during my initial review. Let’s back up for a minute….
Here is that same secion of audio, only this time, I include a few seconds previous to the above question/response. Immediately after I say “I know there’s someone in here. We heard you tell us “Get out!” the last time.”, there is an immediate response“, which is then followed by the question/response I posted above. This clip is not enhanced in any way.

9. Carmen prompted a response from a military man. Yeah!
Here is just the response, enahanced a bit more. Yeah!

10. A the very start of our ghost box session, even before we began to ask any questions, we were told a name. Doris

 

So there you have it, a very busy Night At The Museum!
