The first thing that you should know is that this article is 100% serious, and very, very real. This is not a GAG article, or a joke post. I am not going for humor here either. This is real, serious, and for a passion project that I am currently working on. I’m not trying to solicit anything, just trying to find assistance, so if it comes across that way, then I apologize.

Throughout history, many people have claimed to have been involved with some type of encounter involving a moving shadow, or a phenomena which is commonly called “shadow people”. While pop-culture may have given it a catchy little name, these entities have been around for thousands of years, and have been written about in many instances. This article is not to convince you one way or the other as to whether or not they exist or not.  I am writing this because for years, I have been plagued by a shadow entity in which my family and I call “The Watcher”, and based on my own feelings, observations, and perceptions, this article is going to give solid “factual” encounters and some history behind the phenomena. Read on if this topic interests you.

Recently, I have been spending some time on a rather famous paranormal forum based on the East Coast in the United States, and I have seen that while there are many, many people who are interested in the topics my blog seems to cover, and these people are seemingly well versed, there are also masses upon masses of people who  do not have this information and are simply looking for answers. So the point of this post is not going to be to give all of your answers, but I will be directing this heading to be specifically about what some of the symptoms of diabolical possession are, while at the same time covering virtually all basic aspects of diabolical possession, and what to look for.  (more…)

Surprisingly enough, the story of Anna Ecklund is not an easy one to come by, especially since it is considered the most famous exorcism story in the United States. There are different, varying accounts to the whole thing, and very few books have been published about it. One of these books, however, is entitled Begone Satan!, and was written by Father Carl Vogl approximately 80 years ago or so. It was translated into English by Rev. Celestine Kapsner, and published in approximately 1973. The history of this “book” is that it was originally a very thick pamphlet that was distributed amongst seminaries in the United States to familiarize priests with the destructive powers of the devil through the process of possession, but in its book form, its length varies.

In the year 1973 anno domini, there was a case of possession and eventual exorcism so extreme that it left an entire country at odds with the topic of religious fanaticism and/or demonic possession. Fresh off the heels of “The Exorcist” being released, a real-life case of diabolical possession occurred, in which afterwards, both the parents of the possessed and the priests who exorcised her were brought to trial – and found guilty. This is the story of a girl named Anneliese Michel, otherwise known as Americans as the true inspiration for the movie “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”, and in one rare case, Hollywood didn’t do enough to sensationalize this story. They actually left too much out of the movie. WARNING: Included in this article are real photos of Anneliese Michel, and actual audio taken by the priests during the exorcism. These are disturbing and shocking images/sounds, proceed with caution. You have been warned. (more…)

I was actually recently asked on the US social networking site twitter.com how I came to be involved/interested in this particular field, so I figured that I would update anyone who was curious with a post about that. It will try not to be too long or too drawn out, but here we go.

I am actually an author, but if you read my bio in the “About Your Author” section, I go into the type of person that I am, and the type of life that I have lived. I have experienced and done a ton of stuff in which most people don’t seem to think would be a big deal. I completely understand and respect that there are many, many people who don’t believe that these things exist. Unfortunately, I am often not granted that same respect in return, though I have accepted that a long time ago.

Today’s quote comes from Ed Warren, esteemed demonologist and late husband to the clairvoyant Lorraine Warren of “Amityville Horror” and “Paranormal State” notoriety.

“The phenomena are there, really there! That’s why I say, either you know or you don’t know spirit phenomena exist. If you don’t know, go investigate the findings yourself, but don’t tell me you don’t believe in spirits. Because I’ll prove them to you in fact, I’ll show you things that go on in this world that you wouldn’t believe could happen!”
