paranormal entities

👻 Spirits and Entities 👻

The existence of paranormal entities is widely debated. Some people have direct experience with non-human and non-living beings, while some dismiss the idea as ridiculous. No matter what you believe, you have probably heard the following terms in reference to supernatural entities and while some terms seem interchangeable, these refer to specific presence.

Spirit - General term for any non-physical entity.

Ghost - The most common term used to refer to a spirit is “ghost”, but “ghost” refers only to spirits of once-living things, like humans and animals.

Poltergeist - The term  “poltergeist” refers to two kinds of supernatural activity. One involves spirits, human or otherwise, that cause havoc or chaos. These spirits often manipulate electronics and objects to elicit a reaction from the living. The second form of poltergeist haunting has to do with energies emitted from children or adolescents that manifest physically and cause chaos.

Thoughtforms - Thoughtforms are entities created by thought energy. Though they are usually created for a certain purpose, they can often develop a mind of their own and their own agendas.

Residual Hauntings - Residual hauntings are caused by leftover energy or emotions from a specific event that leaves an imprint in the physical world. These hauntings may manifest as a recurring physical events, such as a certain object being moved over and over again or a specific sound being heard with no source.

Shadow People - Shadow People are figures seen on the edge of one’s vision. They are considered to be bad omens

Parasitic Entities (Demons) - Parasitic entities (including what some refer to as Demons) are supernatural beings that feed off of the energy of a living host or victim.

Doppelgangers - Doppelgangers are spirits that appear in the form of a living person. They are known to appear to a person as themselves to warn them of their imminent death.

Guides - These spirits could have once been human, but do that is not always the case. They linger close to certain people in order to watch over them. These spirits are known to communicate with mediums.

Some people find horror movies enough to give them sleepless nights, but what about films shrouded in real paranormal activity? One such movie is the black and white horror, Return to Babylon. This movie has a hoard of legends circulating around it and it’s evident as to why. The director, Alex Monty Canawati, and a number of cast members said that bizarre happenings frequently occurred on set. They reported feeling otherworldly and even evil entities lurking around and felt unseen hands grabbing at them. While this alone is extremely creepy, it was what was going on behind the scenes that proved to be terrifying. The director and editor of the film began to notice odd things inside the editing room. Mysterious figures began to appear in the negatives of the film and the faces of the actors began to distort, seemingly in fear or agony.

This is a very quick transcription of a basic spirit gratitude ritual that we do here for our companions at MM. Note that this may not work for every entity (some of our darker counterparts have said something along the lines of “Come on, what am I? An Overlord of Cake?” though most get the gesture and that is what matters.)

This is a small dedication ceremony, so the purpose is to give thanks, and to assert (for the first time, or again on an anniversary/birthday, etc) your intentions with them and what you hope the friendship blossoms into.

You can absolutely do your own variation of this, make it into a party, or really make it yours!

What you will need:

Three Plates/Bowls/Platters

A Coin

Two tealights or small multipurpose candles

Incense or Singular Purpose (Not used elsewhere) Candle

Cinnamon

Tea or Wine (Water if you have neither, or milk if you prefer)

Offerings such as Cake, Candy, Crystals, Seeds, Flowers, etc.

A hand-drawn sigil or heart that has been cut out of the original paper or is on a smaller piece of paper.


Steps:

1. Lay the three vessels out. Two of them are for any food items you may have or wish to share, so if you aren’t sharing, you will not need them both. We usually share, as it feels more communal that way, which is an energy many entities like. This is up to you and your friend!  Arrange them in a triangle with one at the top and two diagonally out from either side. 

2. Place and arrange any food items or personal offerings on the two plates, serving them first, and then yourself. If you are using gems, or something inedible, you may still do this symbolically if you wish.

3. Place the two candles on either side of the top plate. Welcome your entities forth as you cleanse the space and consecrate it. Take this time to ground and shield so that you are interacting only with the energies you are welcoming into the space.

4. The Dedication - Have the coin, incense or single use candle, cinnamon, and wine/beverage handy. You may change the phrasing if you wish! State “This is my dedication to you, ____. These are the promises I wish to keep to you, as a friend, as a companion, and as a human counterpart. I thank you so much for choosing to stay here with me, and to help me on my Earthly journey. I value you and look forward to growing alongside you. – Insert any personal dedications here-

5. Place the coin on the top plate. Say something along the lines of “Let this coin symbolize the wealth of our friendship, and the richness that comes from having you in my life.

6. Light the candle or incense and place it on the plate. [Dorm folks can use battery candles!] Say something along the lines of “As this flame alights, I thank you for providing a guiding light and inspiration in my life. Let it symbolize the enlightenment that comes from our friendship.

7. Place the cinnamon on the plate. Say something along the lines of “Let this cinnamon represent the grounded, sturdy nature of our friendship, and the sweetness that comes from working with one another.”

8. Place the beverage on the plate. Say something along the lines of “As the river nourishes the earth and allows for growth, so do we inspire growth and enlightenment in one another. Take this libation as my thanks for being a teacher and a friend.”

9. Lastly, place the hand-drawn figure or sigil on the plate. Say something like “Let this sigil represent the time and effort I dedicate to you as you have dedicated to me. This friendship involves work and passion on both parts, and this is my dedication to you that I will do what it takes to show you the love and respect you have shown to me

10. Say any further prayers or dedications, and feel free to bring out tarot cards at this point and allow them to communicate through that or other mediums of scrying or divination. Leave out the offerings as long as you like, bury them in the earth, or consume them if the entity is understanding and if you cannot afford to waste. Know that portions of offerings do not need to be huge, it truly is the thought that counts. 

Note that you can also use apps such as Ghost Radar or Echovox if you use those types of programs, as communication seems to pick up at this time. 

We like to do this on saturdays and follow it with divination, wine/beer, and treats. You can also do it with other spirit companion friends of yours and bring different entity families together! This may not be the perfect schematic for all spirit families, depending on cultures, needs, and preferences, but hopefully it will give you a good outline!

We wish you much love, light, and laughter!

[Updated 5/30/17]

Imagine a human AU where you are a paranormal investigator. You go around helping people with ghosts and other supernatural entities (though a lot of the time it turns out to be nothing or a prank).

Thor and Jane contact you because they think their house is being haunted. You go check it out since it’s not too far. When you arrive both Thor and Jane seem perfectly polite but Loki (who doesn’t live there but stops by every now and then) openly laughs when he hears what you’re there for. You ignore him and look through everything. Most of what Thor and Jane bring up are easily explained away except for one: Thor insists on seeing a shadowy figure every night in the hallway at 3am. You stay up to see it, setting up cameras to catch the movement.

When you look back at the photos you can tell that it isn’t a ghost but an actual person. Quite easily you deduce that Loki has been playing a prank on Thor and Jane, who had recently seen a horror film about a haunted house and were terrified.

You confront him about it but while you do he starts acting distracted, saying he can feel something tug his hair. You think Loki’s still kidding around until he is pulled back by some unseen force and slammed into the wall.

Cue saving Loki from a ghost and him having to acknowledge the possibility that ghosts are real.

every Ghost Adventures episode
  • Zak: *talks for 12 minutes about the history of the place*

  • Zak: HEY GHOSTS, BET YOU CAN'T SHOW YOURSELVES. BET YOU WON'T POSSESS AARON
  • Zak: *hears voices/sees figures, followed by a whole minute of him cursing*
  • Billy: *gets pulled into the damn shadow realm and the other guys have to rescue him*
  • Zak: *explains in great detail during the voiceover why something is or isn't a paranormal entity, while replaying it 50 times*
The Dark Truth About The Scooby Doo Universe

Yes this is a serious thought that I want to share.
I think I figured out something pretty cool about the scooby doo universe.

This photo was taken in 1895 by an amateur spelunker/photographer named Oren Jeffries while exploring an unmapped section of Grand Caverns, in Southwestern Virginia. At the time it was taken, Jeffries was conducting photographic experiments, using super long exposures to see if anything at all could be captured in the total absence of light, otherwise known as “cave darkness.” He would situate himself on level ground, extinguish his lantern, and then open the lens of his homemade box camera for as long as he could stand the darkness. During one of these experiments, he heard something approach from the deeper recesses of the cave.

Frightened, Jeffries abandoned his experiment and set off one of the Blitzlicht flashes he used for taking traditional photos underground. According to the report he later gave to a local newspaper, Jeffries saw three “humanoid” creatures staring at him from the shadows and took off running in the other direction and didn’t stop running until he was topside. Several days later, he returned with three other men to retrieve his box camera. This is the image that was recorded on the film inside.  

Djinn are frequently mentioned in Islamic mythology and theology, and in the Quran are said to be physical beings created from a smokeless and scorching fire. Unlike angels, the djinn have free will, and are capable of being good, evil, or neutral. They are also capable of interacting with the environment around them, and due to the wide range of supernatural abilities they possess, many unexplained experiences have been put down to djinn.

One such encounter is that of an ex-Army man who was working in Karachi, Pakistan, as a security guard. He had been hired by several rich families to guard the street, and one night he witnessed something inexplicable that had all the hallmarks of an encounter with djinn. One of the guard’s employers, a family member from one of the wealthy families, described the aftermath:

Some time past midnight he was sitting in his chair when we were woken up by his screaming, as he jumped over the gates of one house and entered in shock. Mind you that this was a man armed with a repeater (weapon with 12 rounds, automatic pumping action something similar to Arnolds weapon in T2 while riding his bike).

Upon inquiring he kept on repeating the same story for one hour. He said that in an empty area between two houses he first saw a rabbit hopping right opposite to where he was seated. In an instant the rabbit sort of transformed into a cat whilst moving towards him. As this was happening he tried to dispel this event as an illusion, however he was soon terribly shaken as the cat had now started taking the shape of a woman. He clearly described the transformation, and at the point where he saw the half woman entity he said he got so scared that he started screaming, and his legs which were jammed were able to find the strength to jump into action over the 6 foot gate into our neighbor’s house. As far as I remember he left his gun outside and we had to gather it later.

Our neighborhood remained in a state of shock and fear for quite some time after this event. The guard had been with us for nearly a year and after this he was never the same guy again, soon after he swapped his duty roster with another guard.

One of the abilities attributed to djinn is the ability to shapeshift, and many encounters – including several of my own – have involved witnessing an animal shapeshifting in some way.

In 2011, Latoya Ammons and her three children were tormented by paranormal entities so much, that she was forced to call the police. According to Ammons, her small home in Indiana started to “feel strange” ever since she moved there in November.

Swarms of huge, black flies would appear out of nowhere around the family’s screened-in porch, footsteps would be heard all around the house, including one night when Ammons saw a shadow figure walking across her living room. Even more disturbing is the fact that her children complained of a man “crawling across their ceiling as they slept.” Latoya was awoken by their screams but by the time she had entered their room, the figure had vanished. Although these types of figures are closely linked to those seen in the terrifying hallucinations of sleep paralysis, it seems unlikely that every family member experienced this at the same time.

The supposed haunting came to an abrupt end after Latoya witnessed her unconscious 12-year-old daughter levitating above her bed at 3:00 AM. She immediately contacted various psychic mediums who all agreed that the home was plagued by not one, but some 200 demons. Ammons and her children underwent controversial exorcisms, but to no avail; they were forced to leave the house. Today, the house is well-known for a picture that supposedly shows a demon standing by a window. Ghost Adventures host, Zak Bagans, purchased the property in 2016, but after just a few months renovating it, he hastily ordered for it’s demolition for unknown reasons.

Charlie Noonan was an amateur folklorist who travelled throughout the South and Southwestern United States during the early years of the 20th century, collecting tall tales and stories of the supernatural. According to his wife, Ellie, Charlie was told a story one day by an Oklahoma farmer about a strange woman who lived alone on an isolated property in the panhandle.

The farmer claimed the woman was not a woman at all, but something else, something that hid its true nature beneath a headscarf and was never seen without a large dog by its side. Noonan was apparently intrigued enough to try searching for the woman during one of his research road trips. He was never seen again.

Ellie Noonan was later contacted by a Tulsa pawnbroker who remembered reading about her husband’s disappearance in the papers, after finding his name engraved on a camera sold to him by an itinerant. The pawnbroker returned the camera, and Mrs. Noonan had the film inside developed in the hopes of finding a clue as to his whereabouts. This was the only photo on the roll. Unfortunately, neither the location of the property, nor the name of the farmer who told him the story was recorded in Noonan’s notes.

Shadow People and the Hat Man

Shadow people are something that most people seem to have had at least one experience with.  They are a common occurrence and are often reported by people who see them out of their peripheral vision and likely they have just woken from sleep when this occurs.  Shadow people have no known significance and are more than likely related to the human wake-sleep cycle and the ability of the brain to recognize human shapes in darkness or out of the corner of the eye.  It is unknown whether or not shadow people, who are sometimes reported to have been standing in bedroom corners, are part of reality in terms of another dimension or whether they are simply a figment of our own human minds.

One particular “shadow person” has been known to stick around when his “victims” turn to face him fully.  Different from typical shadow people, the “Hat Man” is first seen in the periphery but when looked at straight on, he does not vanish but stays where he is or continues walking along a path.  Many people around the globe have reported seeing the Hat Man, making him a widespread phenomenon that cannot be explained by the idea that perhaps the human mind is malleable enough to have created him spontaneously.  The Hat Man has been known to have even, in some rare cases, approached victims and had physical contact with them.  Even those who have had up-close interactions with the Hat Man have explained that they could not describe his facial features because he did not, in fact, have a face.  Others claim that they have seen just his eyes–red or black.

What most victims of the Hat Man can agree upon is that he is often seen when the household or individual in question has gone through a struggle of some kind, the entity seemingly feeding off of the powerful emotions from those who have been hurt or are grieving.  It is safe to say that the shadowy entity of the Hat Man is quite a bit different from the normally harmless shadow people who roam about quiet corners in the night and by no means is he as common a sight.  In fact, despite his connection with shadow people, one would more than likely venture to say that the Hat Man is in no way related to them at all.
