Recent Cemetery Investigation and Unexplainable Scratches

Wow! It has been a while since I've posted a blog. I deeply apologize for that. Life has been very hectic, with G.P.S., and other projects I have taken on in the last few months. I can't remember when the last time I had a moment to myself was. But, I'm loving every minute of the work I'm putting into all the new projects.

Anyway, I'm sure y'all didn't come here to read about my non-paranormal related projects, so I'll get straight to the point. One of our last investigations was very interesting. It was literally out in the middle of no where, and was very neglected. The grass, and weeds, were literally up to our hips. So, for safety reasons, none of us really went fully inside of the cemetery. Instead, we settled right outside the fence line. Which was good enough, since this cemetery is very, very small. Almost like a private family cemetery. When a few of us went inside, we only counted about six visible gravestones. And the cemetery is part of the Texas Historical Society. Due to that fact, I was very surprised at how "beaten up" this cemetery was.

About an hour or two after we started investigating, one of our members, Autumn, was standing right at the fence line. Her hands were clearly visible the entire time we were standing there, and there was no one (that we could see anyway) standing behind her. Suddenly, she started complaining that her lower back was burning. We went back to where we parked, which was only a few feet away, and she lifted the back of her shirt up for me to take a look. There were several, horrible scratches on her lower back (photo below). I immediately started taking a few pictures. After I had taken the pictures, I felt the scratches. They were raised, like someone had badly scratched her. Thankfully, no blood was drawn, which surprised me.

As you can see, these are very "unique" scratches. We as paranormal investigators have the risk of being scratched, or attacked in some other form when we go to any type of investigation. However, usually when one gets scratched during an investigation, it's usually only three scratches. Also, Autumn's scratches (above) did not go away until the next day. With all the facts laid out, we have to label this as a paranormal encounter, and consider this a key piece of evidence for this location.

When Co-Founder Jack actually went into the cemetery, he heard footsteps that sounded like they were coming from behind him, but very close. When he would stop, so would the other set of footsteps. When he would continue to walk, the footsteps would pick up again. Exactly as if he were being watched closely, and followed. This type of activity continued throughout the night. I also believe something was effecting me. I do not want to use the word "attacked" because I do not believe that's what happened to me. After Autumn had gotten scratched, and after Jack had been watched and followed, I suddenly began to have severe chest pain, and it became very hard for me to breathe. It was as if someone, very heavy, was sitting on my chest. Along with the chest pain, and the difficulty breathing, I began having heart palpitations.

I haven't had the chance to go over all of the gathered evidence yet. But with the amount of activity we all saw, heard, and felt, I'm sure this investigation will not let us down when it comes to the findings!

November 20, 2012 Cemetery Investigation

On November 20, 2012, our team investigated a cemetery called Brigham, located close to Greenville, Texas. This was not my first time investigating this cemetery, however, it was two of our member's first time investigating this cemetery. First off, let me tell you that this cemetery is huge. My first time investigating this cemetery was during a paranormal event. There were about forty people present, and I never saw the same person twice.

So, this investigation went pretty well. The activity seemed to come and go, which was nothing different for this cemetery. This cemetery is where my husband, and G.P.S. Crew Co-Founder Jack, has a little girl (not so little, she was 15 years old when she passed away) named Francis that loves to follow him around, and communicate with him. Again, this investigation was no different in that aspect of the location either. However, this time around, we did capture some pretty interesting, and very unexplainable things on photo. I will share some of those photos with you now...

Ok, lets start with Photo 1. This photo simply amazed me when I first saw it. There was nothing around us that could have possibly formed this. We tried debunking it with IR Lights, reflections off of other surfaces, but nothing could account for this photo. Plus, there's something additional in this photo that is unexplainable. If you look within the red fog, you can see what appears to be fingers. I snapped this photo a few seconds after I had asked "Do you not want us taking pictures of you?" Then, this was captured. It shocked all of us.

Photos 2, 3, and 4. I snapped these pictures back to back, seconds a part from each other. If you look closely, you can see the same orb in photo 2, then in photo 3 it's in a different spot, and photo 4 it's back to it's almost original spot. To me, this would indicate a spirit that was pacing back and forth.

Photo 5. This is Francis's grave. In this photo, I asked Francis if I could take a picture of her and her family with Jack. Then counted down slowly from three. This picture was captured.

Photo 6. This is another unexplainable, and non-recreateable photo. We have no idea what caused this fog to appear in this photo. Possibly the same 'entity' that made it appear in Photo 1.

Photos 7 and 8. Photo 7, I again asked to take a picture of Francis, and orbs appeared around Jack. Seconds later, I took photo 8, and the orbs were gone.

This has happened before, with Francis. I believe it was our second visit to this cemetery, where Jack asked Francis to be in a certain part of the photo, and once the photo was taken, an orb would appear in the exact spot Jack asked her to be in. He asked her to be in certain parts of the photo for several photos, and orbs would always appear where he would ask her to be. And, even in one photo, three orbs appeared, indicating that her parents were with her.

With all this being said. We had a friend, after our first few visits, that went to this cemetery to do a mini investigation. She told us, that while she was running her Ghost Box, a girl's voice came through, saying "Tell Jack to come visit me. I miss Jack."

So, I don't think we need any more proof that Brigham Cemetery is an awesome place to investigate.

G.P.S. Winning An Award

I am very happy to announce, that our team's website has won its first award! I am thrilled to death! I do all the designing and updating myself, and even do occasional overhauls of the site from time to time. Those who do their own websites know how much work is put into each little detail of the site. So, for us to win this award, means a lot to me. To me, it's finally getting recognized for my hard work "behind the scenes". Thank you to everyone who has stopped by our website, and have liked it, and enjoyed their stay while on our website.

Recent Hill House Manor Investigation

Our last investigation at the infamously haunted Hill House Manor took place on Sunday, September 9th, 2012. This is one of G.P.S.'s favorite places to investigate, simply because the house is so active! And, let me tell you, this investigation was no different than any of our other investigations, although, we had quite a few things happen right before our eyes, that were simply unexplainable. It had all of those who witnessed the experiences, including myself, saying "What the heck?!"

Some of us arrived at Hill House Manor a little before 7pm. As we were waiting to be let in, we sat on the porch, and were just chatting. We could feel the heaviness while just sitting on the porch.

Once we were let in, we all gathered in the living room area, to just have a little small talk with the owner, Linda. All of our equipment bags were safely put on the floor. All of a sudden, when everyone was sitting down, and we were just talking, a very heavy video equipment bag fell over, by itself. At the time, Linda's back was turned. When she heard the bag fall, she quickly turned around, with a questionable look. She then said "Did that just fall over by itself?" I then said "Yes, it did!" Now, if someone were walking, I could easily debunk this experience. But no one was walking, nor was anyone even moving their feet against the floor in any way. So, taking everything into consideration, I have no other conclusion than to label it as unexplainable.

Later, after the investigation had started, those who were not around (although there were two witnesses to this) learned that G.P.S. Member Autumn, had gotten scratched, to the point of bleeding. Most of the scratch itself quickly disappeared, although there was still a small scratch, that you could tell had been bleeding. She even had blood on her shirt.

One of the other more dramatic unexplainable events that had happened, happened while myself, and three others were in the living room area. There is a big dresser in the living room area, that holds a small TV, and a few other things on top of it. Suddenly, at of no where, one of the drawers completely fell off of the dresser, making a very, very loud bang as it hit the wooden floor. It had everyone frozen for several seconds. We tried debunking this as us walking. However, out of all the times we have been there, this has NEVER happened before. Even when there have been 20 people in the living room area, at the same time. And, when this happened, there were only three of us in the area. So, again, this had to be labeled as unexplainable.

I hope, as we go over the video, and audio collected from this visit, we will be able to reveal some awesome findings!!

'The Apparition' Movie Review

My husband, fellow team member Chrissy, her boyfriend Tony, and myself went to see 'The Apparition' in the theater on September 1, 2012. Going into the theater, I was hoping that it was worth the money to see it, and hope that it lived up to my expectations of a good ghostly film. I have to say, that I was a little bit let down by the movie.

The movie had its really good parts, but then again, it had its really boring parts. I know, most movies do. I love scary movies, and horror movies, and I like to see them, no matter what they are about. But, when the movie is paranormal related, I have very high standards for the movie. Probably because I'm a paranormal investigator. A lot of paranormal investigators that I have met over the years hate movies that have anything to do with the paranormal. I am the opposite. I enjoy a good paranormal movie.

This movie revolves around a young couple (the female is Alice from the Twilight Saga). What the female doesn't know is: is that her boyfriend dabbled in paranormal investigation, and conducted a highly experimental 'project', that opened a door to the other side, making everyone involved in the experiment 'haunted'. And since she was the girlfriend of one of the participants, she became haunted as well.

With that being said, the rest of the film is the couple, and one of the other paranormal investigators fighting for their lives against this entity they let in.

There were about four big 'shock' factors in this movie, that I actually found interesting, but my fellow investigator Chrissy, found very frightening.

Out of Five Stars, I would rate this film at 2.5 stars. I enjoyed the fact that they gave the back story of the haunting, which a lot of paranormal based movies do not do, until they decide to make a sequel. Other than that, I believe they could have done more with the movie. They even left it open for a part two. The most disappointing part, to me, was the ending. The ending is what can make, or break a movie, and to me, it broke the movie.

I would recommend waiting for it to come out on DVD or BluRay before seeing it. Not worth the $20 to see it in the theater!

New Meaningful Project

My team, Grayson Paranormal Society is now working on a brand new project, that most of you will find very meaningful. We now have an anti-bullying Campaign, called "Grayson Paranormal's Campaign Against Bullying". In the past year alone, within Grayson County, TX, there has been at least five reports of teen and children suicides due to being bullied in school. This senseless act must be stopped! We need to get everyone involved, and make people aware of what is going on within our school systems, and even online.

Everyone I know has been bullied in some way or another throughout their lives. Those who have never been bullied have no clue what it does to a child's spirit. It simply kills it, and it remains dead for the rest of their life. I should know, I have been bullied by people my entire life. And the bullying began when I was in elementary school. Surprisingly, I was bullied by both my fellow classmates, and also my teachers. Now, the bullying goes on online. A place that SHOULD be safe. I know if it's happening to me, it's happening to others. Our children need to be protected against this senseless act. What most parents do not know is: Not all bullying victims tell someone. Although fellow classmates, friends, and even teachers may know about this, most parents do not. And, sadly, our school system's teachers do not act against acts of bullying. It's hard to think of our children being bullied in school. But what if it's not a fellow classmate? What if the person doing the bullying is a teacher?

I do not have kids. However, I am speaking for all those who do have kids. We all need to be aware of what is happening in our children's schools. Bullying kills people everyday. It's amazing how many children are committing suicide because of hateful words someone says to them, or even the physical harm they are subjected to while in their school. A school of which is supposed to be a safe place for the children to go to.

I will be posting more articles about bullying, and how we can all stand together, to stop this senseless act of violence. Even if it's just hateful speech that's going on, it is still an act of violence.

We have a Facebook page for our Campaign. Please join it, to get up to date information on the Campaign, and tips to help STOP BULLYING!!
