Deeper than the Grave Episode 21: John Edmonds and The Stardust Ranch

John Edmonds

John Edmonds

Startdust Ranch was suppose to be the realization of a lifelong dream for John Edmonds. It was to be a place where he could rescue and rehabilitate animals of all kinds, but especially horses. He and his wife got more than they bargained for, however. Strange and frightening things began happening the moment they arrived at their new home.

John talks with us on this episode about several of his experience over the past 21 years he has lived at the Stardust Ranch. These go beyond seeing lights in the sky and even abduction. John says he has physically battled aliens with firearms, swords, and his bare hands.

Clarification of Claims

We could find no information to corroborate the claims that Dr. William Levengood died in his lab. In fact, a comment on this blog post relating to Dr. Levengood’s death says that he died in Hospice care in Jackson, MI.

It should also be noted that Dr. Levengood’s wife, Glenna, passed away in 2010, three years before Dr. Levengood.

Robb Demarest

 

You know him from Ghost Hunters International, Haunting: Australia, and appearances on many other paranormal programs. Robb Demarest chats with us on this episode. We find out Robb’s thoughts on a lot of the equipment being used to investigate the paranormal these days (Hint: He’s not a fan of some of it). He tells us about investigating on TV. Mostly, though, we talk about comic cons, 80s and 90s TV shows, getting celebrities to sign off-the-wall objects, and why we call him Rodd.

Spirit Attachments

Investigating the paranormal can be fun but there are dangers that go with it. It is not uncommon for investigators to bring a spirit with them when they leave a location. It’s important to follow certain protocols to protect yourself from spirit attachments. That is the topic of this episode.

What are some ways to guard against having spirits attach to you?

How do you get rid of an attached spirit?

Those are a couple of questions we explore. We also share experiences we’ve had with attachments. A surprise guest even calls in to share some knowledge about the topic as well.

**This episode has some explicit language**

 

Deeper than the Grave and 313 Paranormal received no compensation in return for discussing AreasBox. One free download of the app was provided for testing and research. The positive feedback we give about the app is based solely on our experience using it.

Dave Miller talks with us about his experience with the paranormal, his show 51 Areas Paranormal Talk Radio, and the app he co-created called AreasBox.

In general, we are skeptical of ghost hunting apps. The AreasBox, however, has proven itself to be useful and accurate. It uses reverse audio of Latin payers and protection to attract positive anergy and create positive communication

Deeper than the Grave Episode 15: Old South Pittsburg Hospital

Old South Pittsburg Hospital

 

The Old South Pittsburg Hospital (OSPH) operated from 1959-1998 as a small community hospital. Now, it sits frozen in time just as it was when the doors were closed almost 20 years ago. That doesn’t mean the place is empty, though. It seems to be filled with spirits of former workers, patients, and maybe even people who resided in the area long before the hospital was there.

We investigated OSPH back in April and on this episode we discuss what happened while we were there. We also talk with Stacey, who coordinates investigations at OSPH. She tells us about the history of the place and she shares strange encounters that have happened over the years.

What Is Paranormal Investigating Really Like: Reality TV vs Reality

Kate

By Kate

Being a Paranormal Investigator can be a tough gig sometimes. There are many doubters and even more critics. Being taken seriously can be a challenge especially for those new to the field.

There Is More to Investigating the Paranormal Than You May Think

The recent influx of paranormal teams and TV shows seems to be a double-edged sword for those who have been in the community for the long haul. While it brings awareness and additional social acceptance to the subject, it also leads people to believe that all you need is a recorder and a video camera and you too can be an investigator just like so and so on TV!

It sensationalizes what we do in the dark and makes it appear as if it’s hours of nonstop action and excitement with evidence constantly being captured and spirits interacting with every piece of equipment. They tend to leave out the hours upon hours of sitting in silence, the mountains of research, the lengthy evidence review, the expense and all of the other small details that go into a successful investigation.

New teams are popping up left and right in an attempt to get rich and famous quickly and I find that concerning. The notion that anyone can do it without any knowledge or dedication to the craft and assumptions that it will be nothing but fun is just not true.

Ghost Hunts Are Rarely Like TV

The reality is, more often than not, it’s quite boring. You can sit for hours and not get any activity or you can walk into a location and have something happen in the first five minutes. It’s unpredictable, it’s time-consuming and most importantly it’s about making a connection.

The majority of investigators are genuine and are truly looking for answers. They conduct respectful investigations, look to collect concrete data and care about those involved, both living and not.

The Purpose of Paranormal Investigation is to Make Connections

For me, it’s all about making a connection with someone as well as the location and being there to listen if they have something to share. Shows that highlight the provoking of spirits, call everything demons and lead the public to believe that spirits always act on command cheapen the reputation that real investigators strive to maintain and make it difficult to advance the paranormal field.

There are shows out there with real investigators as well and they are incredibly easy to spot. They have a completely different approach and show a different side of the investigation including some research, interactions with the living and actual resolution. They show that sometimes they sat in a room and recorded for three hours and captured nothing. They are real. They show the truth and that’s why they are credible.

The rest are about entertainment first and actual evidence second. Paranormal investigating isn’t a hobby or a way to entertain yourself. It’s a lifestyle, a passion, a dedication to increasing your knowledge and awareness. It’s about wanting to help people, having experiences and going back in time through amazing locations.

When a spirit gives you evidence it’s a gift. Be thankful and above all, be respectful.
