Normally we don’t post any evidence until a case has been complete but this evp was just too incredible not to share. We did clear it with our client and she did give her consent to release this clip.

The full investigation for this case is coming up really soon and I will not be giving out any information about the case except for what is needed in order to understand the context of this clip. This audio is from last week when Dave and Rex were meeting with the client to discuss camera placement for the upcoming investigation of a local business. During this meeting only Dave, Rex and the client were present. Two rooms away the recorder caught a very interesting evp while sitting on a desk near the entrance.

Listen to the clip and let us know what you think:

PPS Update

I know it has been a while since anything has been posted to the website and it has been even longer since we posted any new evidence or case information. The reason we’ve been so quiet lately is that the majority of our cases this year have not gone past the preliminary investigation phase. Many of these cases did not produce sufficient evidence during the preliminary meeting to warrant a full investigation while others seemed to have more natural explanations. There were also a handful of cases where the clients did not wish to proceed any further after hearing what we found during our initial visit. Since we respect the privacy of our clients we decided a long time ago that any case that does not result in a full investigation will not be shown on our website. We do have a few more cases lined up for this year and we will keep you all up to date as evidence becomes available.

The most recent question posed on our facebook page asks “In your experience​ as an investigat​or do you feel that spirits want to be contacted or do they want to be left alone?”

While some voted that the spirits do want to be contacted most felt that some want to be contacted while others do not. This seems pretty consistent with what we have experienced during our investigations as well. As you know the majority of our evidence comes in EVP form and a good deal of these audio files sound like they are the direct result of our being there. Some want us there and try to make contact by saying “HEY” or “HI”, in fact we capture “HEY” more than any other word during our investigations. Listen to the following examples captured from some of our cases through the years of spirits that want interaction.

Others seem to suggest that they want to be left alone or that they don’t want us to know they are there.

Recently we posed a question about the reliability of the Minibox as a paranormal tool on our facebook fan page. The mini-box is an ‘AM band frequency sampler’ used for experimentation of potential two way spirit communication. (similar to a “Frank’s Box” also called a “Ghost Box”) The theory is that spirits modulate sweeping radio band frequencies to form words that can be heard in a real-time scenario, thus allowing the potential for a question and answer session.

Here are some examples of successful minibox sessions that we have conducted over the past few years.

Although we have had some success with these sessions we still feel that it is not very reliable for collecting conclusive evidence of the paranormal. The theory relies on spirits being able to modulate existing radio frequencies to communicate. Because of this the probability of receiving actual voices from a radio broadcast is very high. Because of the high margin of error we feel that more experimentation needs to be conducted and a standard for acceptable responses and response time must be established  before we could consider using this tool on a regular basis.

The majority of those who voted on the poll felt the same way.

Keep checking back and on our facebook fan page  for more polls.

I know its been a long time since our last post so I wanted to fill everyone in on what PPS is up to. We have been meeting with potential clients on preliminary investigations and reviewing A LOT of audio over the past 6 months. Unfortunately some of the prelims yielded little or no evidence and did not warrant a full investigation, but that’s why we conduct preliminaries. We do have a few cases that do require full investigations coming up shortly so keep checking back for our findings.

In the mean time check out our new Facebook fan page at http://www.facebook.com/PasadenaParanormalSociety where I will be posing some questions about paranormal theory, beliefs and investigation tactics to all who read(including many other paranormal groups). Once I have enough answers to a poll I will post the results on this page along with the official PPS stance. If you have any topics you would like to see covered or have any questions you would like answered please add a comment to this post.

PPS will also be conducting another one of our experiments in the next month, details will be revealed soon.

My Ghost Story-Air Date

In 2009 we were contacted about a possible haunting in Pasadena, now 2 years later that case will be featured on a segment of the Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story.

When we first read the claims that Stacey and Marcie detailed in their haunting report we approached it with our usual skepticism and open mindedness. We did not expect to experience one of the more active homes that we have ever encountered. During our first visit we learned of all of their experiences since moving into the house and were able watch something they caught on their video camera. The video that they captured was unbelievable to the point where our jaws dropped. We asked for a copy to analyze and see if we could lighten it up any and what we found was more amazing than what even Stacey and Marcie were expecting. Our analysis turned up a second instance where an unseen force seems to jump across the bed and then materializes as it leaps off to the side.  This allowed us to proceed with a full investigation of the property and then a follow up a few months later. Unfortunately neither of our investigations turned up anything on video, but we were able to capture some impressive EVPs.

Somewhere in between our 2 investigations we decided to bring Stacey on as an investigator and she will be taking her first lead assignment on a case coming up in the next few months.

In December Stacey and Marcie traveled to Hollywood to tell their story to the Biography Channel. Our founder, Dave, went to tell the investigator’s side.  The episode will air this Saturday, April 2nd at 10:00pm EDT. You can view all of the case details here and for the follow up investigation here.

Super Moon?

Today the moon will pass closer to the Earth than it has been in almost 2 decades. At 3pm EST the moon will pass through its closest point of 221,565 miles which may make it appear larger in the sky leading some to label it a “Super Moon”.  According to scientists the moon at its peak today may appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal. There are those who claim that  super moons are responsible for causing natural disasters, such as the earthquake in Japan but  according to seismologist “you see a less-than-1-percent increase in earthquake activity, and a slightly higher response in volcanoes.”  Scientists from the US Geological Survey noted that the earthquake in Japan happened 1 week before the “super” full moon and nearly 1 week after the new moon, new and full moons being the times when the moon’s gravitational pull have the greatest effect on Earth. The earthquake happened when the gravitational pull on earth was at its weakest providing the best piece of evidence that the two events are unrelated.

You may be asking yourself why I am posting this as Pasadena Paranormal has never posted anything related to astrology, geology, weather patterns or psychic predictions. Well the truth is that there are several theories, some good some bad, about paranormal activity in relation to the phases of the moon.  As a young group we have not had the chance to study the effects extensively enough to come to any sort of conclusion. But I can confirm that we have seen a recent increase in reported hauntings over the past month which is unusual for this time of year, normally we see more in the summer and fall months than in the spring. What do you think is it possible that this so called super moon could have an effect on the level of paranormal activity?

Orbs-again

Anybody who has visited our site knows how much we at PPS love those little circular objects that show up in photos called “ORBS”. In case you are new to the site and could not tell by the italicized word love, I was being sarcastic, see my post from last may to learn more. Today while checking the PPS  facebook page I saw a status update from someone showing several pictures with “orbs” in them. I was going to send a friendly comment explaining how his photos were created and a link to the ASSAP site but then I started reading some of the other comments and decided it was just not worth it. In one of the shots is a blue “orb” and the comments ranged from what does it mean to “It’s like this one was a beauty queen while the others were average people”(this was a direct quote).  When if they took the time to do a simple web search they would find out that it is actually the ghost of a smurf, just kidding. A blue colored  circular anomaly is caused by an incorrect white balance, which is very common in low light, it can cause a blue hue on certain objects since there is no natural white in the frame and the camera is overcompensating.  The topper though was a comment from a woman to a link with this picture

Unfortunately people who make up things like this give the rest of us believers a bad name. Let me know what you think.

Why did you join Pasadena Paranormal?
I have always had an interest in the paranormal, long before reality television brought the subject into our living rooms with the plethora of shows about ghost hunting. Ghost stories have always captured my interest and since I recently moved to Pasadena a few years ago, Pasadena Paranormal seemed a good choice. After lurking through their website and realizing that this group is more about helping those experiencing the paranormal then thrill seeking, I decided I would like to be a member of this group.

Have you ever had a paranormal experience before joining PPS?

Once on a ghost tour in Williamsburg, Virginia, I experienced what felt like someone touching and tickling my ear. It was a very strange sensation and no logical reason since no one was behind me to do so. Not sure if it was paranormal or not but certainly strange.

What do you hope the group achieves?
My hope for the group is to continue to help those who may be experiencing difficulties in their life because of possible paranormal activity and to possibly provide some answers to the questions surrounding this topic.

What do you hope to achieve for yourself?

My goal is also to help others in my community and possibly answer the questions I have about the paranormal.

Avid motorcyclist and sci-fi fan.

The Discovery Channel is developing a new show which will follow actual stories of  hauntings and possessions. I know what you are thinking, “oh great, another ghost-hunter type show” but there is a different twist on this, the Vatican will be providing the case files and the priests that will be performing the exorcisms. According to the Discovery Channel the show will recreate some stories based on case files from the Vatican archives as well as interviews with the Catholic church’s top experts on the subject.  “The Vatican is an extraordinarily hard place to get access to, but we explained we’re not going to try to tell people what to think,” says Discovery president and GM Clark Bunting.The network hopes that if the first season is a success, it will allow for an expansion in which it will follow the church’s investigators as they look into new cases.

I would like to hear some opinions on this, do you think this could shed some new light on how the Catholic church handles reports of demonic possession? or will this just be another breeding ground for the crazies who want their fifteen minutes of fame?

The show is set to premier this Spring.

===UPDATE===

It has been brought to my attention by one of our readers that the Discovery Channel has revised their initial statement regarding the partnership with the Vatican saying “To ensure the accuracy and integrity of our content, we did meet in an unofficial capacity with individual members of the Vatican staff. We didn’t intend to imply that we had a ‘sanctioned’ partnership.”
