File No: 12-12-100
Location:  Berwick, PA -  Columbia County

Investigation Date and Duration:
June 3, 2012     1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Location Status:
Unoccupied two bedroom house trailer

Reported Activity:
This was a referred case from Paranormal Investigator John Zaffis.  The client was reporting that she and her three year old daughter had moved into a trailer with a friend.  Activity had started right away and escalated as time went on. The clients related that activity occurred almost on a daily basis and at all times of the day. Reported activity included humming, buzzing, hearing voices and growls and having a feeling that someone was standing right behind them. The clients stated that the activity felt threatening to them.  After seven months, the client and her daughter moved out and into another home. The three year old then continued to report activity at their current home and the client was concerned something had attached itself to the child.  By having The PPA come in, the client is hoping to get some answers on what is causing the activity and some peace for her daughter.

Psychic Impressions:
During the initial walk-through of the home, Virginia picked up on a lot of anger, violence and despair. Virginia also picked up on drug and alcohol abuse and a lot of confusing and conflicting energies.

Virginia asked the clients why they wanted her there, the clients told Virginia, because the daughter of the female client/mother was expressing that she was seeing and sensing things and also drawing disturbing pictures of spirits which started happening when the child was brought to this home.

The mother of this child was also feeling as if there was something negative in this home; feelings such as anxiety, anger and other types of psychical pains and scratches that made no sense. The mother felt that a person who she knew may have done witchcraft in the home to bring this on and because of this, the mother feared something Demon like attached itself to her daughter and her. Virginia did not feel that this was the case.

Virginia began receiving information on a female who had died who was very close to the owner of the home. Due to his compassion for her, this trapped spirit became very attached to him, very protective and resented any close females in his life. Virginia felt that the spirit of this trapped female was the one causing all the activity because of her confused state of mind during the time of her death. Virginia also realized that this was the female spirit who gave her information in the beginning of the walk-through. 

Virginia felt that the mother is an empath and is able to feel spirit emotions and pain. Virginia believes the daughter also shares this ability with her mother and this experience only enhances the child’s gift.

Based on the clients request and concerns, The PPA concentrated more on identifying and resolving the issues on this investigation more so than on trying to document activity.  With that in mind, we concentrated on the "source property" where the client used to live.  No personal experiences were noted during our time there and nothing out of the ordinary appeared on audio recordings.

Being that our goal on this particular case was more to bring resolution to the activity rather than document experiences, Psychic Mediums Virginia Centrillo and Jack Olmeda went right to work on identifying what they felt was there and how to best deal with the issues.  After identifying what they felt was causing the activity on the property, Virginia believes she was successfully able to release one earthbound spirit that was attached to the home. 

Virginia feels the child’s gift needs to be monitored and carefully cultivated. Virginia gave information to her mother to help her develop and understand their gift together. The owner of the property was also given information on how to keep up the energies in the home and on the property. Virginia feels that the property itself is very protected by American Indian spirits that do not tolerate violence or abuse and that must be respected.
