EMF (Electro-Magnetic Field):
Standard baseline readings were taken throughout the home with expected spikes near electrical appliances. Very high and constant EM fields were measured in the master bedroom along the wall to the right as you walk in. This wall adjoins the daughter’s bedroom which also measured very high EMF’S. In addition, the daughter’s bedroom had areas along each wall with very high EMF’S creating a significant location for someone sensitive to these fields to have many kinds of mental experiences. These experiences could be perceived as paranormal but in fact are normal responses to the fields present. In areas with constant high fields such as this, it is also believed that if a haunting did exist at a particular location, these high fields could act as a kind of battery to help spirits manifest or even magnify the activity in this area. To complicate matters, there are also some theories that indicate that areas with constant high EM fields may act as a catalyst to open up someone psychically or enhance an ability that is already present in a person.

Psychic Impressions:

When Virginia was introduced to Stacy, the client, Virginia recognized that Stacey herself was very gifted. Stacey confirmed this. During the initial walk-through, Virginia picked up on two spirits; one of a little girl and the other a young boy. Virginia felt the girl ran to the back of the home into the kitchen and disappeared. The boy ran upstairs to the bedroom at the top of the stairs which would be the client's son's bedroom. Virginia felt a large, angry male spirit in the daughter's bedroom who was disturbing both Stacey and her daughter. Virginia added that there was an “R” named male who was associated with the home in the past and this male moved around the basement of the home.

Based on the investigation from this one particular night, investigators were not able to conclude that a haunting was taking place nor dismiss the claims of activity to rule out a haunting. No personal experiences were noted and no physical evidence was documented. Investigators did measure areas of high EM Fields (magnetic fields) in the daughter's bedroom and against the adjoining wall from the daughter's bedroom with the master bedroom. These fields remained constant and are most likely caused by normal electrical wiring in and outside the residence. Although these fields could be the cause of some of the activity being experienced in that area, it does not explain other reports of activity throughout the home.

From a metaphysical perspective,Virginia not only believes there were active spirits in the home but that the client and her daughter are very much open and sensing this activity on a psychic level. The client confirmed this. Virginia assisted the client, Stacy in releasing the Earthbound spirits with the help of THE PPA. Virginia feels this cleansing was successful, although, being that the client and her daughter are psychic in their own right, they will always see and hear things beyond the normal human capacity and in many areas outside their home as well.
