EMF (Electro-Magnetic Field):
Standard baseline readings were taken throughout the home with expected spikes near electrical appliances.  Elevated readings were measured throughout the home to varying degrees in almost every room and are attributed the the wiring in the home.  The amount of elevated EMF’S in the home could be a contributing factor to the amount of experiences that the family is reporting. Constant and elevated EMF’S have been correlated with locations that report a high volume of physical activity acting almost like a magnifier of the activity but could alos cause some false feelings or sensations.



Investigator Feelings / Personal Experiences:
  While present in a 2nd  floor bedroom during the cleansing phase of the investigation, Don observed what looked like two purple colored streaks of light swirl passed him. 

Stan:  While present in the basement, Stan heard what sounded like someone whistle.  A review of the recorders in that area did not  produce the sound.

Psychic Impressions:

Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo felt that there were two entities in this home causing issues for the clients.  The first was the mother of one of the clients who was looking for forgiveness from her daughter for the way she treated her while alive. The mother was having a hard time moving on until she felt she was forgiven.  The second was a maid that used to work for the family.  She was becoming aggressive towards the second woman in the home who was now in a type of caregiver role. Virginia felt that the maid was not happy that the new caregiver was doing the work that she felt was her responsibility, not realizing she was dead.  

During the investigation on this particular date, investigators were not able to document any activity that the clients were reporting. High levels of EMF were measured in many areas of the home and it is believed that may have been the cause for some of the sightings of colored objects floating across the ceiling as the EMF'S effected the perseptions of the client.

Metaphysically, Psychic Mediums Virginia Centrillo was able to provide information that two spirits were occupying this space causing much of the activity that the clients were reporting.  Virginia believes that she was able to release the spirits in the home after she was able to connect them with past family members who came for them.

Virginia provided information to the clients on keeping positive energy up in the home and how to deal with other related issues.
