Psychic Impressions:

Virginia’s findings were as follows: the Spirit of the owner's Mother & Father, a Brother, and a woman named Helen, who lived down the street in a red house, are all present in the home. The spirit Helen talked about the number 30 or 300. Virginia does not know the meaning of this number. Virginia also felt a presence of a Priest in the home who walks through to check on the home. Connected to this Priest was a Church that burned down next door to the home, which the owners confirmed. As Virginia continued the investigation with the PPA, she picked up a man who worked at a coal mine but also was a blacksmith that would shoe the horses/donkeys that worked in the coal mines. Virginia feels this entity came from a cemetery that the family/owners take care of. Virginia also picked up that the male entity was looking for help to crossover, which is why he followed one of the owners home. With the help of the PPA, Virginia performed a clearing to help the Blacksmith to crossover. Virginia also gave the owners information on how to keep the energies up in the home and also how to protect themselves when working at the cemetery.

Virginia also picked up these names that were associated with the property: Benjamin, WH, HW and Archbald, who Virginia feels is connected to the Male owner of the home. Virginia feels this to be the owners guide

During this particular investigation on this date, investigators were not able to document any activity that would be considered paranormal. Further, The PPA was not able to dismiss the activity the clients had reported and, therefore, could not prove or completely rule out a haunting.

Metaphysically, Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo picked up on almost all the activity the clients were reporting and confirmed the presence of several entities within the home. Virginia believes that the clients deceased relatives and past owners still visit the home and watch over them. It was also noted that the client's caretaking of a local cemetery is the cause of some of the activity. Virginia advised the clients of ways to prevent the attachment of those spirits to the clients.

At the end of the investigation, Virginia helped crossover the male entity who had followed the client home from the cemetery. The relatives and priest who remain or visit the home are not trapped and will continue to come and go as they wish. Virginia has provided the clients with information and tools to keep the energies up in the home.
