This actual question was posed to me lately during a meeting, where I was asked what this whole thing entails. In other-words, what is Haunted Scotland’s Raison D’être – ‘reason for being’ – and what is the thrust of the forward movement to be here.
Some seem to think it’s a company, much like the fantastic tour companies that operate in places such as Edinburgh or our friends at History & Horror Tours in Perth. I’m afraid that is rather wide of the mark, and I have no skills in such areas either.
This is a question on many lips, a search term very popular on Google, and something we all ask, are psychics real or is it all a trick to deceive the public for fame or fortune.
I’m in the unique position whereas I have worked with many people who claim to be psychic – or in touch with the other side – and I feel after 10 years of such, I am in a position to comment on this very much asked question.
It’s extremely easy to fall into practices that are counter-productive to our search for possible paranormal activity. I should know, I’ve done so on many occasions and used such incidents to learn – and grow – in my search for evidence of the survival of the soul after death.
We truly do not want to delude ourselves – or our fellow seekers – by providing material and data that has faulty readings. More so, with the increased abundance of pseudo-sceptics and armchair cynics, we must ensure that we fully understand what works, and what is providing false positives so we can arm ourselves with truth and integrity. In the following video, I highlight the need to properly set up EMF Meters away from electro-magnetic emitting devices. YES, that includes your Echovox device of choice!
Forget photographs with illuminated particles or film footage with dubious condensed breath – unless you can prove otherwise of course – and begin to look into the area of audio capture while attempting to collect paranormal activity on location.
Anyone who follows my work in this field knows I prefer to test and advance with the Echovox audio application, but even basic EVP techniques with any type of audio device capable of capture can be your number one friend.
As I rearranged the trigger experiment – Items set up in the hope of capturing paranormal movement and thus some evidence of activity – an overwhelming feeling of dread moved over me like a cloud in a gathering storm.
You see, I was situated at the bottom of the famous Mary Kings Close in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. I was separated from my team members, which included excellent people, such as Fiona Williamson, Ewan Irvine, and a few other very able people in the paranormal arena. It was late, a very dark night, the attraction had also closed for business…..
It truly Is all around us, and may be more normal than paranormal, more natural than supernatural, and far more accessible than you could ever imagine. Yes, I’m speaking about that mysterious topic of spirits, hauntings, and the afterlife.
After probing this area for over a decade now, working in some of the best known locations in Scotland for possible paranormal activity, I am rarely surprised at what’s captured as probable evidence into existence of the soul after death.
