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.

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

It was by accident that I found out about a castle, a work in progress, built by one man of great faith and little money. In July 2009, my family and I went to Blount County to see the Millennium Manor. Afterwards, we ate at a pizza place on Alcoa Highway, and our waitress saw the flier I had with me from the Manor. She inquired if we were house hunting. I explained no, and mentioned The Stone House, which ignited a conversation. By the time we left, she had piqued my interest about a lone man, now in his 60’s, living in Greenback, building a castle in honor of “The Big Guy”, using donated scraps and handmade brick. At first he didn’t know why he was building the perimeter to a structure that now has divine importance. He began his work in 1992 after the unexpected death of his brother. Not knowing why he spent each day coming home from work, digging on the foundation to what would later become approx., 30+ rooms, 100+ walls, dozens of concrete crosses, bejeweled and spectacular to most anyone who observes it. Each room has a theme, from the greatness of “The Throne”, to the “Room of Evil.”
I will have to say, when I found the castle, it was very much unlike the image I had created in my mind. The waitress had mentioned that “faces and images could be seen” in the walls. I was imagining a church type structure. The castle truly evokes many complex feelings, all at once, which can almost be overwelming. It turns out, the images and faces are messages the builder can only interpret, and I understand that he is the only one who has seen them. He believes they are messages from “God.” I believe in his faith, because countless hours, sweat and effort have been attributed to this project, which seems to have no end. My pictures are only a brief glimpse into the magnitude of this structure. I have a couple of links to share if the story intrigues you as much as it did me. You can look at all of the pictures of The Greenback visit on my facebook page. I hope you enjoy the YouTube video I put together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZY5buddJU4o
