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 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?

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.“.

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.

Night At The Museum

Sedro Woolley Museum

Sedro Woolley Museum

A sincere and warm thanks to Carolyn for allowing us to investigate the Sedro Woolley Museum on January 29th. We certainly enjoyed our time there. We learned so much from the tour! Being a history buff, I know I will be going back to learn more about Sedro Woolley’s rich and colorful past.


We captured some very interesting audio and video during our investigation.

1. The first EVP was captured in what is called the “Hospital Room”, where artifacts from Northern State Hospital are kept. You will hear my footsteps, and in between two of my footsteps, you will hear what appears to be a male voice, which sounds as if someone is “groaning“.

2. The next one occured just about two minutes later and sounds very similar to the first. It also sounds as if someone is “groaning“.

3. The third EVP occurred not long after the second. In this clip, you will first hear the second EVP followed by the third. It appears to be saying “Get out!
Turn down your headphones to about 25% for this one. It is a louder version of the “Get out!” portion of the previous clip.


Here are 4 video clips from our short 15 minute mini-mag-lite session in the “Hospital Room”.

1. Mag-lite I



2. Mag-lite II



3. Mag-lite III



4. Mag-lite IV



Double trouble mini-maglite sessions at Northern State farm

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

An interesting evening was spent at Northern State October 2, 2010. During our investigation of the horse stables, Carmen and I attempted commmunication with the spirits using trigger objects (small infaltable toy ball, pendulum) and other devices (mag-lite flashlights, KII meter). Here are 5 video clips from our short 1 hour investigation that night.

More voices from Northern State.

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I spent a short evening (about 2 hours) at Northern State farm area on Sept. 11, 2010 and recorded these two voices. My recorders also picked up several distant spirit conversations, but I could not discern what was being said.

1. The first one occured when I asked whoever was there to try again (using the PX box). He responded “I already tried it.” This was recorded on my Sony digital recorder.

2. The second one was excerpted from the radio box session recorded on my Olympus digital recorder. It’s fairly quick, so listen carefully. It says “They left me to rot here.

Wellington: August 6, 2010

Monday, August 9th, 2010

I made another trip to Wellington, WA on August 6, 2010. I was there for the entire day and well into the night. In the evening, I met up with Bert and Jayme of NWPIA, Tom and Jami of BGH, Scott of ParaWa and others. Although I did not have any personal experiences with the paranomal that night, it was great to meet with all of them and to learn more new things about investigating.

Earlier in the day, I was conducting several EVP sessions in the snow shed. Durinng one particular session, I picked up the voice of “a child singing or humming.“. I did not hear this at the time it happened.

A reveiw of the recording of a ghost box session I made ealier in the day revealed three interesting voices.

1. Just 46 seconds into the ghost box session, a voice says “Grandpa. It's Albert.“. Among the dead of the Wellington disaster were two people with the name Albert: Albert Boles and Albert G. Mahler.


2. Another one says “Paul. Listen. It's me, (Ben?).“. Among the dead of the Wellington disaster were two people with the name Ben or Benjamin: Benjamin G. Thompson, and Benjamin F. Jarnagan, 31, engineer.


3. The third ghost box voice was a direct response to my request. I said “If you can hear my voice, tell me what color the chair is that I am sitting in.” The immediate response: “It's blue.“. I was in fact sitting in a blue folding chair.

Fear of dying…

Monday, July 26th, 2010

July 24/25 at Northern State
In this conversation, one spirit expresses her/his fear of dying when one spirit asks: “What is it?” The second spirit immediately responds: “I don't wanna die!“.

Spirits poking fun at me at Northern State farm area

Monday, July 26th, 2010

I captured these and several other voices on my recorder while at Northern State farm area the other night (July 24/25). I was standing perfectly still, out in the open in between the farm buildings, when two spirits chime in: “'(1st spirit) What happened, Paul? You're quiet....(2nd spirit) You don't have to do ANYTHING to be crazy.“. I couldn’t agree more. In fact, aren’t we all just a little bit crazy?
