Oakland Park – The Old Insane Asylum – On many instances there have been wheelchairs moving from one end of the hall to another and you could see imprints of people that resided there and no one in the building. Many people have gone into this empty building and came out with sever mental disorders. The building is no longer standing but you can still see people that used to live there. – This was listed as “Thief River Falls – The Old Insane Asylum”- There never was an insane asylum in Thief River Falls. However, a resident of the town for many years, knows the building that is being referred to. It was formerly located in Oakland Park, the three-story brick building built in the late 1800s was a sanitarium for tuberculosis patients. It served that purpose until TB was eradicated in the 1950s. After that, the building was used as a nursing home until a new nursing home was built on the property in the late 70s early 80s. In the mid-1980s the building housed a dormitory for the local community college. The students that lived there were a little upset when the college failed to mention that the “dorm” was about six miles away from the college. Needless to say, the building was only used for a few years as a dorm. It stood empty from that time and was used for storage for the nursing home. It was torn down a few years ago. There is some interesting features on the building and its history. A tunnel was constructed that lead from the basement kitchen to the nurses’ quarters (a separate building on the premises) so that the staff could travel between the buildings without having to go outside in the winter.

Cemetery is framed by large pines and large iron gate at the front of the cemetery there is a small dirt field road on the west side that runs along the length of the cemetery and ends next the boys grave. In the center of the cemetery is a large tree or trees growing out one base. At night after 12 am if you count the trees at the center of the cemetery and if you go to the boy’s grave and come back the number of trees has changed. Most of the time it’s thirteen but sometimes as few as six. It also feels as though someone is watching you and that your not welcome there.

Randall – Little Falls – Darling Church – Early after being built it is said that two African American men kidnapped and murdered a woman in the church.  Being that murders were placed on the shoulders of Africans in that time it is no surprise that it was in this case either.  It was rainy that night and a nearby farmer was said to be out in the yard getting something out of the rain and heard the scream of a woman.  To him it sounded from the church, but because of the weather he didn’t pursue what he had heard.  He figured he had heard the wind.  The next day the woman was found dead in the church (cause of death unknown).  Two African fellows were traveling through at the time and the death was placed on them.  They got out of there as soon as they could being either they did kill the woman or they knew they would get the blame.  The farmer never forgave himself for not going to the church that night.*  Few people have said that they had seen a figure of the woman roaming around the graveyard behind the church and the church itself at night.  They also said that further away from the church they heard a woman scream coming from the church.  The ghost is seemingly harmless.

The Truth Behind Ghosts and Psychic Abilities

February 12, 2009 at 5:00 am (Ghost) (, , )

For centuries people have sought to have psychic abilities proven, yet the answer has seemed illusive. People such as Chris Angel and David Blaine leave people breathless in wonderment, yet still the final answer has escaped validation. At the same time you have skeptics who feel that the abilities of a psychic are nothing more then a collection of generalizations that everyone can relate to. Is psychic ability real and will it ever be accepted?

Since the age old question has yet to be proven scientifically, the psychic field has been rattled with frauds, wannabes, and outright whackadoos. These people prey upon the grief, uncertainties, and unstable time’s people fall upon and tell them what they want to hear so they can fill their bank accounts with their client’s money. In essence the situation involves one individual paying another to tell them what they want to hear.

Other then frauds, there are many actual psychics that are in mental institutions and many who are just plain psychotic who claim to be psychic. Some people actually hear voices from beyond and pay to be institutionalized for doing so, whereas some hear voices because of mental disorders and charge you to listen. Yet where is the real answer, especially when an individual has a lady across the table claiming Sally said “Hi” when the original questions was “Can you pass the syrup?”, and a psychic hotline can only tell one more about their future if they press “#” followed by their pin number?

Numerous respectable psychics seek the answers to respectability among the muck of undesirables and frauds. The true psychic does not sit around with a crystal ball or a deck of tarot cards in hand. In fact, one will most likely not find them dressed in brightly colored frocks with a turban on their heads nor with a third eye painted between their brows. Think about it, just because a person tames lions, does not necessarily mean they are going to walk down the street with one. Instead they dress in usual attire, speak on grounded terms, and hail from every walk in life.

YouTube has a video from an NAS Museum where psychic Rhiannon Waits reads energy from a vintage Japanese Zero that is being prepared for restoration. Naval Administration are the only ones that have the ability to research where this particular aircraft was and have records to where each part was located before its arrival to the hangar. Rhiannon tells the planes history and information of the pilot that navigated it to the director of its restoration. She explains that she reads energy from the aircraft, thus revealing its history. A quick search for Rhiannon Waits in YouTube search box will allow you to view this short clip. (Reference (1): youtube.com/watch?v=LJ29J_Jwww4)

Numerous television shows have become popular as they seek out haunted houses or explore paranormal activity. However, despite the popularity of such broadcasts, there are many individuals who appear to hesitate when it comes to admitting belief of existence in paranormal phenomena. It seems as if the average person finds safety and shelter behind the conclusions of a television critic.

One show in particular, which seems to escape the flakiness and the shroud of hysterical Ghost hunters, is aired on the Sci-Fi Channel. Ghost Hunter has now been aired for several years now and features TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society). What is significant about this show is that it is filmed as they investigate certain places to either validate or disprove paranormal activity. With the use of scientific equipment, the reports submitted by those experiencing the activity, and several investigators, they collect all data possible and then submit their findings. Viewers can rest assured that they will not find this team screaming in fear or running from the findings. The unbiased team will analyze their findings and complete a report stating whether a location is considered to have a significant amount of paranormal activity or not, and why that conclusion is so. For example, one may say their house is haunted based on the idea that they always hear foot steps at night. Yet, a closer look can reveal that due to changing climates and wooden floors, the sounds are simply coming from the wood adapting to the changing temperatures outside and within the house. In spite of their professionalism, Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes are still attacked by skeptics and criticism from those devoted disbelievers. (Reference (2): scifi.com/ghosthunters/)

Who are these attacking critics and why is it that they become so vicious in their attacks? There are many reasons for this. Some hail from Christianity, where they point to a few passages in the bible where they refer to the paranormal and those who believe and go in search of it in are to be dammed and are headed for a damning light. However, this appears to contradict itself as many Christians cast this aside as they read more than a few passages that refer to prophets, spirits and miracles. To cast the entire skeptic community on Christianity would be erroneous. Yet, perhaps their religious upbringing has many in fear of damnation for believing what they were taught was wrong.

Numerous skeptics come from atheist backgrounds. Their inability to believe in what they cannot see shrouds their judgments. If they were to believe in the afterlife and the ability to see beyond it, then logically, their belief system might be in jeopardy. This fight then becomes one of self preservation because it is the basis of their life structure.

In contrast, if one recalls ancient times where individuals believed in the afterlife. The ancient Egyptians would fill their tombs with possessions that they believed would go with them into an afterlife. Likewise, the ancient Greeks longed for the day they died, where in the afterlife they would be able to enjoy a huge banquet for eternity. Let us not forget all of those who believed the world was flat and Christopher Columbus was crazy, when he decided to prove one would not sail off the face of the earth. One can argue that ancient times are primitive eras, yet theoretically, the society we live in today will someday be considered primitive.

Overall, most of the time I find that some will simply say, “It isn’t real,” yet when I ask why, I get a response such as “because it isn’t,” “Its just fake,” so on an so forth. Therefore, one can conclude that when it comes to the paranormal, it is not a matter of whether or not something exists, yet it comes down to having an open mind and being able to evaluate situations in terms of being “inside and/or outside the box”.

No matter where the skeptics come from or what their purpose, they all agree on one area. They will seek out the frauds, the imaginative, the mentally ill and any mistake or fallible act to use as creditability and validation for their point of view. Where skepticism is good to a certain point for us all – blind obsessive compulsive skepticism is good for no one. It proves nothing. Keeping an open mind and being able to think on a deeper level will allow one to experience more, which then, expands one’s knowledge and overall horizon intelligence.

So do psychic abilities and the afterlife exist? This will be for the individual to decide. It should have enough doubt to keep it real and yet enough belief to embrace the possibilities.

It’s believed that the lights at night flash on and off, and fade in and out. If you were to look at the window, you would see a white shadow moving side to side, staring you in the eyes. It’s also believed that the body of Groundskeeper Brown was buried at the school. Brown killed himself on March 29th, 1940. On every March 29th, he appears around the whole school, and protects himself and his grounds from any moving object within a 100 meter radius.

South Australia – Barossa Valley – Seppeltsfield Winery – Built in the early 1800s by Oscar Benno Seppelt, who is said to have turned slightly insane after spending hours confined in his private retreat, located behind the trophy cellar. If you go on one of their ghost tours held in the summer months, you feel as if you are being watched all the time. Walking through the barrel tunnel, you can hear loud footsteps above you, but there is no floor above you. After 7PM, the lights will not turn on in the lower levels. The ghostly apparition of a maid is said to haunt the homestead and tunnels. If you walk past the distillery and other cellars, you can hear screaming in the vineyards and see glowing in the top tower of the distillery. While walking past the Vinegar factory, you can hear the machines working, wheels cranking and the sounds of steam blasts, even though the factory has been locked for over 150 ye ars. During the tours, you can go into Oscar’s retreat, which is so small it can only fit a maximum of 4-5 people who even have to duck their heads to walk in. In the Mausoleum of the Seppelt family, you can see eerie bloodstains on the walls, which are still wet on the anniversary of their deaths. Due to this, the Mausoleum was locked and bolted shut in the late 20th century. Moans and whispering can be heard in the dinning hall, which you can hire for functions. Staff and tourists in the garden have heard rifle shots. These ghost tours are not for the faint hearted, and no tapes, projectors or computers are used at all. Also not recommended for children under ten years old. Walk through the gardens as you hear stories of near death experiences and listen to the screams and shots through the air. Many tourists have felt cold spots, and being pushed by invisible forces. Others have told of feeling depressed near the gardens, and even being frightened into screaming fits.

South Australia – Kapunda – Cemetery – Kapunda is a mining town just two hours from Adelaide. It is an old mining town. A young girl haunts the local cemetery there. She was sent there to the nuns when she was pregnant and unmarried. The local priest gave her an abortion, and still to this day she haunts the local cemetery, searching for her baby.

Nightly ghost tours are held, as well as occasional trial reenactments.

Tasmania – Richmond – Richmond Bridge – Australia’s oldest bridge, it is said to be haunted by the ghost of George Grover, a flagellator supposedly thrown off the bridge by the convicts he tortured during its construction. Grover was transported to Van Diemen’s Land in 1825 for stealing, and by 1829 records show him as the flagellator at Richmond. His death in early March 1832 resulted in an inquest, concluding that he had laid down while drunk, and “fell or was pushed” from the parapet of the bridge, 27 feet in height. Grover’s ghost is said to appear on the bridge at certain times. The ghost of a large black and white dog, sometimes called ‘Grover’s Dog’, is also seen on the bridge. One lady reports it appearing at her side on several occasions, as she walked the bridge at night. It would walk alongside her from one end to the other, and then disappear as quickly as it had come.

Tasmania – Theatre Royal – The theatre has been haunted for many years by a deceased actor/stagehand named Fred. Fred is frequently seen in theatre, both backstage and in the audience.

Florence
– Belvedere Fort- On the other side of the Arno River lies a plot developed only after the onset of the Industrial Revolution. Witches were burned there at the stake; numerous incarcerations, exiles, murders–during the night, the labyrinthine streets vibrate with preternatural energy. Footsteps in the dark on an abandoned cobbled street. Voices in empty alleyways; churchyards wherein one can see the faint images of victims denied succor. The Belvedere Fort itself is a brick edifice that had once divided the outlying country from the inner city in the Middle Ages. Ghosts, shadows, wraiths walk beside the wall, vanishing beneath the street lamps before reappearing anew in the shadows. Children’s laughter and singing.

Florence – Pensione Burchianti – small, translucent, pinkish male ghost has been seen in the frescoed room (the one in which Mussolini once stayed), as well as the feeling of icy cold breath on people’s faces, the feeling of someone sitting on the bed when there’s no one there, and the feeling of being watched when there’s no one there. People have also reported seeing a child ghost wandering throughout the halls, a maid ghost that will clean rooms at night, and an old knitting woman sitting in a rocking chair. The owner of the pensione will not stay there at night because of the hauntings.

Forio – Island of Ischia – In an old villa at the end of Via Spinavola, on Easter morning you will see a short looking ghost walk up the outside stairs to the balcony. the story goes that the man that owned the home in the 60`s committed suicide on Easter morning by drinking rat poison because his gay friend left him for another man. The ghostly figure appears short because in the late 70`s the 3rd floor was raised 18 inches during renovations.

Northern Italy – Lucedio Monestary – This place is haunted by monks and people who were sacrificed. There were footsteps heard, apparitions were seen, sounds were heard.

Pensione – Burchianti -small, translucent, pinkish male ghost has been seen in the frescoed room (the one in which Mussolini once stayed), as well as the feeling of icy cold breath on people’s faces, the feeling of someone sitting on the bed when there’s no one there, and the feeling of being watched when there’s no one there.

Rome – Area around the Forum – There are a lot of old ancient Roman housing areas surrounding the Forum in Rome. Mostly at night, especially when there aren’t too many visitors or tourists, you can look down over the barriers into the arches and catch glimpses of shadowy figures walking around or gesturing. These figures are mostly just memories of the past or lasting imprints, not anybody with “unfinished business”. These “ghosts” are hard to find because most of Rome is lit up at night, but if you are lucky enough, you can find a rare unlit section of ruins, and watch the figures.

Sicily – Palermo Catacombs – the corpses hanging on the walls sometimes faintly move. When you walk by them, they will be in one position, and when you pass by them again. They will be moved. In one of the rooms, you can here, whistling, talking and people talking amongst themselves. You get a creepy feeling when you walk in the main door.

Venice – If you are not careful while walking in small groups after dark, it is possible to get trapped in a time loop. There are also many places where you can see the ghosts of people lurking in the shadows, although they will usually disappear when they realize that they have been seen.

Venice –
Island of No Return – Reports of voices, footsteps, sounds, and an overall sense of evil permeates the island. Locals of the area still will not journey there at night.

Venice – Poveglia – An island not open to tourists. Was originally a self-governing island hundreds of years ago before being taken over by Italy. When the black plague swept over the country, Poveglia was where the dead bodies and even those who were still alive were dumped. They were put into “plague pits” where hundreds or even thousands of bodies and still-living victims of the disease were thrown in and either buried, burned or just left in the open to rot. Centuries later, a hospital was built by a doctor who tortured patients and who tried experimental therapies of his own invention on mental patients. The hospital, his office and the crematorium, still stands. The island is used for farming only and no tourists are permitted on the island at any time. Psychics have received special permission to visit and even they were scared out of their minds.

Most Haunted Places in Afghanistan

October 29, 2008 at 7:47 am (Ghost, horror, spirit, Stories) (, , , , , , , , )

Afghan – Tajikistan border – Hindu Kush mountains – The “Ail”, feminine looking entities with floating hair, pale eyes resembling milky white orbs and glacier pale skin are said to inhabit the region whenever the suns rises so high, that you cannot see your own shadow, or at twilight. Even though they normally go on about their business, it is best to treat them with respect, since the Ail are known to be quite violent and hostile. That is why you almost never see any villagers or nomads out during those times in the day.

Kabul – Kabul University –
It has been told that some of the abandoned dorms and abandoned classrooms were used by the Taliban to torture and kill people whom dare defy them. While some foreign aid workers were helping out on re-building Kabul University, it was said by many that they smelled the foul scent of rotting flesh, feces and other bodily wastes. Others said they also saw the entities of the victims that were tortured to death by the Taliban or heard screaming and crying in pain, when there was no one there.
