The clients have lived at this
home for 20 years but the activity started about a year ago. The activity occurs mostly in the evening on
a daily basis. The clients report that
the activity started with them hearing footsteps. The top drawer of the TV console in the
living room would open on its own. The
family pets began to act strange. The son reported a feeling like someone was
watching him while he tried to sleep.
The client’s son and his friends heard his name called on one occasion
while they were in the basement. The
dryer door on the dryer, located in the basement, would open by itself. The
client has felt something tugging on her blanket in bed and has had the feeling
that someone was sitting on her legs.
The client reported that she has had various experiences where she felt
like she was touched in different ways.
The daughter has not experienced much activity and the client feels that
the activity revolves more around her and her son. By having an investigation, the clients hope
to identify what is there and to get whoever is there to leave.

eneterng the home, Jim observed two flashes of light at the top of the
staircase in the back left corner of the living room. The client
had also reported seeing this event.
Virginia: Refer to Psychic Impressions
When Virginia first walked into
the home she picked up on a female spirit who came from a couple of houses down
the street. The name that Virginia associated with this spirit was
“Millie”. Millie was looking for her
son, Anthony who had passed on and her other son, Nicky who was still
living. Virginia felt that Millie came
to the client’s home because there was construction going on in her own home
and became trapped there. Virginia also picked up on an abundance of deceased
family members who came while we were there just to give support and help
crossover the spirits that were trapped in the home.
As Virginia began the
investigation, she picked up a male spirit who once sold slaves and who was
also a bounty hunter for runaway slaves. Virginia felt the name of this spirit
was “William” or had a last name of “Williams”.
Virginia also picked up on a little boy from the turn of the century who
was very afraid of William or Williams.
Virginia felt the young boy liked to play in the client’s son room.
As the investigation continued,
Virginia came across a young man who had committed suicide by hanging himself.
Virginia believed this man came from a couple houses down the street and was
waiting for help to move on. During her
time in the basement, Virginia felt that there were two areas of vortexes, one
located in the front of the house and one in the back.
During the investigation on this particular date, investigators noted a
bright flash of light in the back left side of the living room as they entered
the home. The client confirmed that she
has been noticing this event and as recent as the morning of this investigation
date. Investigators also observed elevated
EMF’S in the basement area near the cloths washing equipment and in the areas
of fluorescent lighting fixtures. These
fields could give a feeling of being watched, or the feeling that someone was
present with you, to a person who is sensitive to these types of fields. Investigators were not able to come up with
alternative explanations for much of the activity the clients were reporting.
Based on a physical examination of the property, a haunting cannot be proven or
ruled out at this time.
metaphysical perspective, Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo was able to
validate the experiences being reported by the clients as being caused
primarily by three spirits.
With the help of our guest,
James Maitland, Director of our associate team, Crossroads Paranormal, and
members of the PPA, Virginia was able to successfully cross over the souls that
were trapped in this home. Virginia felt that she also had help from the
client’s father, who had passed on, but was able to facilitate the release of
the trapped souls. These souls were neighbors of the client’s father and
therefore, he was able to be of great help from the other side. Virginia
provided information to the client on how to keep the energy up in the home
until the property is sold.
PPA will continue to monitor progress at this home and continue to help the
clients as needed.
