Communicating With Spirits:

This is another controversial topic.
Q. Can we communicate with spirits?
A. If the answer is Yes, then the question becomes:
Q. Should We Communicate with Spirits?
A. Now the answer will depend on who you’re asking.
Q. How do we communicate with spirits?
A. It seems spirits have been communicating with the living long before our time sometimes without the living even trying. And in some cases, we among the living have attempted to communicate with them by using seances, ouiga boards, divining tools and even hypnotism.
Q. Is it safe to communicate with the dead?
A. In my opinion, that answer can be both yes & no. A lot will depend on your religion & personal comfort level pertaining to life & death. The consequences far out number the possibilities of what can happen when the living attempt communication, & without question negative results may ensue, hence this is a very individualized answer.
But for sake of what WE DO at Paranormal Spectrum we feel that the digital voice recorder, the EMF detector, and video camera are great devices to use, allowing us access to communicate with spirits. For some of us on a personal level, we attempt communicating with non scientific tools as well.
However, this part of the website comes with a warning.
Proceed with caution when entering any supposed haunted location.
On a physical level, and a spiritual level, there are consequences.

This old debilitated tuberculosis hospital is touted as one of the most haunted locations in the South. Almost every paranormal enthusiast has visited-or plans to visit Waverly Hills in Louisville, KY. We at Paranormal Spectrum.com are no different.
Practically obscured by trees, sitting majestically atop a hill now surrounded by distant housing new development, it encompasses approx 29 acres. With more than 6,000 documented deaths, if this place “isn’t haunted – no place is.” Fenced & surveyed by cameras it is nearly impossible to get inside without permission. So don’t attempt it. Besides, we were told that one group who entered that way has an amazing story of their own to tell as they tried to chop through a metal door to escape the haunting inside. One of our photographs on our main website shows the axe marks. We have details on the stories inside the old hospital on our Haunted Places page at http://www.ParanormalSpectrum.com.
The legendary “body chute” is a sight to behold, more than 500 ft of descent into the ground where bodies where whisked away so the patients couldn’t see the corpses, leaving at the rate of 1 body per hour.
Then of course there’s Room 502 where a pregnant nurse hung herself. Our guide explained that this area of the building has the ability to bring on feelings of depression,complete with thoughts of suicide. One of our members was “touched” by phantom fingers near the doorway to 502.
But our favorite floor was the 4th floor, where shadow people and an evil entity threaten to leave a lasting impression that spirits do exist. One tour guide says he was attacked by enseen forces on this floor.
Lastly, we were charmed by the spirit of a young child known as “Timmy”, who likes to play ball or hide and seek. In one of our pictures there seems to be a child on a ledge, could it be Timmy? In the photo can you see the shape of a kneeling child? (Thank you Debbie, for taking this amazing photo. You captured a lot if interesting images.) See Debbie’s photo album on the Photo Gallery page of our main website.
Current owners of the sanatorium graciously offer tours for all budgets. We enjoyed our tour, even though we have a few complaints such as they intro felt like a circus show and was purely intended to instill fright, the whole tour could be improved upon.
We had several experiences at Waverly Hills, so visit our main webiste and see the Haunted Places page. http://www.paranormalspectrum.com

Moon Phases: Could moon phases help with our desire to seek spiritual connections?
The Moon is thought to have considerable effect on life especially as it relates to humans. It is also thought to effect paranormal activity. That may seem like a supernatural idea or mysticism, yet it may be more scientific then you think. Considering our bodies are largely made up of water, the idea isn’t so far fetched. We can see the Lunar Effects on the Tides here on Earth and how powerful they are; could there be such influences on the spiritual level? This is an area we would like to explore.
One such book that may shed some light on this topic:
Phases of the Moon (Patterns in Nature series) We will have more input and future articles on this subject as we test the possibility and how/if the moon has any effect on our research into the paranormal.

Abraham Lincoln: Our 16th president was self educated. He was a prophetic man who believed strongly in the spirit world. His life would be wrought with much death and tragedy which would indeed make a man very reflective about what awaits us after death. His ability to know things that others would deem nonsense can be appreciated by those who have this skill themselves. One example would come after Lincoln received the victorious news of winning the presidential election; Lincoln had a vision where he saw his reflection in the mirror and his face appeared to have two distinct images, one face was slightly higher than the other and one face was much paler, the shade of death. He mentioned this to his wife who never saw it for herself but did believe her husband and believed she understood the meaning of the visualization: The healthy face was her husband’s real face and would mean he would serve the first term of his presidency. The second face, an ashen shade indicating death, would mean he would be elected a second term but would not live to fulfill it.
There were many prophetic parallels in Lincoln’s life that have been documented and speculated and disputed, there were even the rumors of séances in the white house. It is worth noting that many spiritualists stayed there during his term and even warned him about the darkness that seemed to follow him . The fact that all of Lincoln’s sons died young attests to the dark cloud that loomed over his and Mary’s life. After the death of Willie, Lincoln was known to speak of his son’s spirit visiting him in his home and office. It seems after Willie’s death that even Mary could no longer deal with so much death it was the beginning of the time that she turned publicly to spiritualists and would not enter the White House guest room where Willie died or the viewing room where his funeral was held. This is also the time when people became concerned with her mental instability as she was prone to headaches and mood swings and sudden angry outbursts. Eventually after the death of her husband Mary would become institutionalized.
If anyone could discount the many rumors and speculations of Lincoln’s fascination with the spirit world how could they ever ignore the foreboding dream Lincoln recounted shortly before his assassination? The fact is, Lincoln dreamt he was in his bedroom aware of a peculiar death like stillness. The silence was broken by subdued sobs and then he heard a number or people were weeping loudly. Lincoln left his bedroom and wandered from room to room, looking for the mourners but there was no one to account for the growing sobs of distress. Determined to find the people who wept openly he finally made it to the East Room where he saw what appeared to be a funeral with guards surrounding the corpse and mourners shuffling by, some gazing at the body while others covered their faces and wept. That’s when Lincoln inquired of one of the soldiers, “Who is dead at the White House?” The soldier answered rigidly, “It is the president. He was killed by an assassin.” Lincoln was naturally troubled by his dream. A few days later Lincoln was shot and killed and his body would be displayed in the East Room of the White House.
There are many interesting stories about this fascinating and upstanding man who made such a change in our lives. He is but one renowned person who has walked through this life and made a difference while recognizing that we are not alone spiritually. He is recognized by us at Paranormal Spectrum as a Spiritual Man of Importance. This article will also be featured on our main website. Created by: Tama Poore – Founder of Paranormal Spectrum.com
