Psychic Impressions:

With the initial walk though, Virginia felt there was spirit presence in the home. When speaking with the owner, Virginia felt that because of some type of tragic event that the homeowner experienced in his past, his aura became wide open which allowed spirit communication with him. Virginia related that the client was also conducting EVP sessions in the home which made him a beacon for lost souls to enter his home. Virginia felt she needed to conduct a clearing with the owner present to participate in the clearing and to help understand how to cope with his newly found gift. Virginia's recommendation to the client is to stop all EVP sessions in the home, and begin to work with meditation in order to harness his gift in a more practical manner where he is not attracting lost souls or any possible negative energies.

During the investigation on this particular night, investigators were not able to document any physical evidence and no personal experiences were noted. Being that most of the claims of activity were based on perceived events and personal feelings rather than physical activity, there was not much physical activity to try and look for alternate explanations for. Additional factors had to be looked at such as animal behavior and client sensitivities to better determine what was affecting the occupants of the home. One unusual event that took place was around 7:11PM when the house was unoccupied except for the family pets. With our DVR cameras running, nearly the entire time the house was vacant, that being about an hour and a half, two cats and two dogs remained laying down in various areas of the house; two dogs on the downstairs couch and two cats in the master bedroom. At 7:11PM, all four animals became active. The dogs began sniffing around the living room area in the first floor and the cats came out of the master bedroom at nearly the same time. One dog appeared to check out the first floor computer room with two cats following not too far behind then returned to the living room area where they became calm again. Although not positive evidence of a paranormal event, it was significantly different and worth mentioning should any future animal behavior appear to be the same.

At the client's request and Virginia's recommendation to do a cleansing, Virginia worked with the family to provide some spiritual guidance and help remove a few entities from the home. Virginia feels that was done successfully and will offer some additional guidance to the family to help maintain low levels of activity but believes because the client is himself open to spirit energy, the activity for him may always be present wherever he goes. Experiences that the client provided to The PPA independent of Virginia's impressions about what going on in the home seemed to match almost identically. With this in mind, if there is activity occurring at this location as reported by Virginia and the client, it would fall under a psychic type haunting rather than a classic haunting in which physical activity is present and non-psychic individuals would not notice any of the spirits that are present. Only those people sensitive to different energy levels would notice the activity taking place. The client appears to be one of those people.
