We’ve all heard the stories of séances gone wrong,
whereby gateways to the spirit world are opened with terrifying results. So
what are we to believe? Are séances a good thing or a bad thing? Or does the
truth lie somewhere in between? Barbara Parks, author of In the
Presence of Spirits and Embracing the Spirits, explains.
Most Spooky Hospital (2017): Clark Airbase Hospital,
The winner of this years Most Spooky Hospital award goes to
Clark Airbase Hospital. Not only is this location eerie because it is
abandoned, but it is also incredibly haunted. This hospital was featured in
National Geographic’s series “I Wouldn’t Go In There,” and was reported by
Ghost Hunters International to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
Clark Air Base was previously a United States military
facility from 1903 to 1991. During WWII and the Vietnam War it was used as a
hospital for injured and dying military personnel. Now it is thought that many
of these personnel never left. Those who have visited the facility have
reported seeing the apparitions of soldiers walking throughout the halls. Strange
orbs will often float by and doors will open and slam shut by themselves.
Visitors have also heard screams and voices emanating throughout the abandoned
facility. Some of the ghosts are also known to be violent as visitors have
sometimes been pelted with items by an unseen force.
Fort George was built between 1796 and 1802. Upon the forts
completion it became the headquarters for the British Army and the local
Militia. Then, during the war of 1812 the fort became vital to the Battle of
Fort George. This battle started on May 25th in 1813 and lasted for
two devastating days. Afterwards Americans held onto the nearby town of Niagara
and Fort George for nearly seven months. Eventually, upon fearing a British
attack, the US forces were ordered to burn the town of Niagara to the ground. Over
130 homes were lost to the flames, leaving 400 townspeople without shelter just
before the beginning of a terrible winter. Many townspeople and soldiers died
from these conditions. Eventually, the British managed to reclaim Fort George
and the town of Niagara for the rest of the war.
However, due to the battle that took place here and the
subsequent torching of the town it is hardly surprising that this fort is now
incredibly haunted. Visitors have reported seeing the ghostly figures of
soldiers still on duty patrolling the grounds. Another common sight is that of
two men dressed in red uniforms in the officer’s quarters. Soldiers have also
been seeing lying in bunks in the barracks dressed all in white. The “Woman in
the Mirror” is another common spirit seen on the premises. This woman, also in
the officers quarters, appears to visitors in a mirror. She has long curly hair
and is dressed in 19th century clothing. Finally, the most loved
ghost of the fort is Irving. Irving can be seen roaming the upper level
barracks. Although this area is off limits to visitors, staff will often hear
footsteps on this top floor. When staff goes to check it out they will often
spot Irving for just a second before he disappears from sight.
Spirits and witches go together like sunlight
and solar panels. The ability to work with them effectively can make or break
the magick, but developing a relationship with the other side doesn’t always
come easy for everyone. Witches can work with the potent energies found in crystals,
gemstones, and minerals to help them cross the hedge and build a better
practice. This list of the seven stones (okay, there are actually
thirteen) are those that you should be working with if you are looking to
boost your psychic abilities, make contact with spirits of all kinds,
and travel the planes of existence.
A beautiful and highly prized stone known for aiding in manifestation, astral
travel, dream work, and protection. The Inuit people believed that Labradorite

Ghost Pushes Teenage Boy into Car (Caught on CCTV
How many times have you went to get in your car, and
you check the backseat as a precaution before you get in? Believe it or
not, a lot of people do this, because they’re afraid a serial murderer could be
hiding in the backseat of their vehicle.
One thing we don’t think about is the fact that sometimes
things can follow you into your vehicle.
That’s exactly what we see in this paranormal video of a
teenage boy being physically attacked by a ghostly force.
This video consists of footage that was captured from a
CCTV security camera.
It looks as if this boy was trying to retrieve
something he’d left in his car.
As he was bent over, reaching for something in the
vehicle, a ghostly figure appears to push him from behind, sending
him tumbling head first into the driver’s seat.
As you can imagine, the teen is quite shocked, and
turns around to confront the person that just shoved him into the vehicle.
But when he turns around, there’s no one there.
Even though this boy has no clue what just happened
to him, thanks to this security camera, we can see exactly what happened.
As he’s bent over, we get a quick shot of what appears to
be an opaque apparition form for a split second.
That is long enough for it to shove him from behind.
The teenager is quite startled after this encounter,
so he quickly slams his car door shut, looks at his surroundings once more,
making sure no one is there, and then he returns to wherever he came from.
A lot of paranormal videos out there cut off
whenever we see a ghost, and we’re left curious as to exactly what we just saw.
Thanks to this video, we see an entity form
right before our eyes, and then interact with a person.
This video serves as a reminder that there are some
things in our world that can’t be explained, and sometimes these things can come
in contact with you.
