Member's Doppelgänger?

First off, for those who aren't too familiar with what a doppelganger is, it's supposed to be a demonic entity that takes shape of a specific person. If said person sees itself in the "doppelganger" (demonic) form, you will die that day/night. With all this being said, this experience was a very interesting beginning to a very interesting investigation ahead. Lets get started.

Let me set the scene before leaping into what happened...This took place several years ago at a location that I'd like to not name at this time. We were the first team allowed to do an investigation in years. At the time of this experience, all but one member was at the location. Now, for the layout of the location...

There were two sets of wide double glass doors on the first floor. Once you enter the building, you can see two big staircases that lead up to the second floor and also has a big balcony. If you're standing on the balcony, looking down to the first floor, you can see the two sets of wide double glass entry doors. Now that that's taken care of, let us move to what happened that night. 

Out of all of our members that were at the location at the time of this incident, all but one of us experienced this. This was due to the one member finishing camera set up throughout the building. Myself, our team members, and our host for the evening were standing at the top of the balcony waiting for our last member to arrive, which would be at any moment. All of a sudden, we see the member walk to the doors and attempt to open them, but they're locked. I mentioned to our host that's who we were waiting for. In the 20-30 seconds it took our host to walk down the stairs and get to the doors our member had vanished. Our host even walked outside of the building, walked around the building, but he had simply vanished into thin air. We all gave each other the infamous "weirded out" look. Finally, I asked another member if she could call him and ask him to come back to the front and our host would let him in. So, she made the call.

She asked him to come back to the front of the building, asked what he was doing, and where he went. He confusingly told her that he was still on his way, and would be there in about 10 minutes. She grew silent and turned white as a ghost (no pun intended). Once she ended the call we all asked her what happened. She told us and we all had the same expression, and all swore to our host that was him. He didn't seem one bit surprised by this as similar things had happened before.

Sure enough, several minutes passed when our final member arrived, wearing the exact same thing as the assumed "doppelganger" had been wearing. We explained the experience to that team member which shook him up a little bit.

So, was this a doppelganger? Or just a coincidence? I guess we'll never know. But I do know two things for sure: I never want to hear about someone seeing my doppelganger twin, and, obviously, I never want to come face to face with my doppelganger twin.

Deer…?

**Before I begin, for the purpose of this entry, I'm going to refer to deer as "deer" as this remains unexplained...**

This experience happened to my husband and me roughly 5 years ago and still has me stumped to this day…

This took place in the middle of the night. My husband and I decided to make a very late night trip to Walmart. Our local Walmart is about 5 miles away from our house. Being in a semi-small town, the streets were empty at this time of night. When we were roughly 2 miles away from Walmart, we were talking, and laughing, when all of a sudden, what appeared to be a female "deer" comes out of nowhere (about 10-20 feet in front of the car), and darts across the street into a large parking lot, causing me to slam on my brakes. Where we were at had no wooded areas around, so there was no real explanation as to why this "deer" was in that area. Only a minute passed by when I started driving again, but very slowly. We wanted to see where this "deer" went, considering there was really nowhere for it to go. As we were even with where this "deer" went, I stopped the car again, and my husband and I both looked, only to see that there was no "deer". In fact, there was no animal period. It was as if this animal had vanished. But there was nowhere for it to go, other than crashing into the few stores that were (and still are) there. With all this being said, I need to go back in time a little further…

That large parking lot where this "deer" ran into and vanished has several stores. We have talked with several people who had worked at a few of those stores. And each person told us that the store they worked at was haunted. Each person had a handful of experiences to share with us. One that sticks out in my mind is that of a Native American Chief whose apparition has appeared to many people over the years.

Is it possible that this "deer" was an apparition? Is it possible that the "deer" and the Native American Chief are linked in some way? Was this "deer" not a deer at all, and was some type of other Supernatural being? To me, this experience digs up more questions than answers. But what do you think?

Wheelchair...

Hello again everyone! I know I haven't posted in a LOOOOOOONG time! But, I'm back, and I'd like to start off with sharing the first paranormal experience that I can remember. So, sit back, and enjoy….

This experience happened to two of my cousins and myself when I was about 7 years old. It took place in a small town in North Texas, in a very old hospital that was converted into a cheap rental house that my Aunt and cousins lived in. The hospital wasn't very big at all. In fact, I'd consider it to be more of a clinic nowadays than a hospital. But, back then, it was a hospital. I think it was built back in the 1800's and closed in the 1920's. It only had one floor, with the exception of a large basement. I remember that I could still see the room numbers on the top of each room. 

My Dad and I went to visit my Aunt and my cousins one night. They were in the living room area visiting, while my cousins and I were sitting on the floor in front of the basement door playing with some toys. I can't remember why, but we decided to open the door to the basement. When we did, at the bottom of the steps, we saw an old fashion, 1890-1900 style wheelchair, with its right side facing us. I can't tell you about my cousins, but I remember getting really creeped out about that wheelchair. Why was it there? There wasn't anything else down there except that. 

All of a sudden, the wheelchair started to squeak and slowly turned to the left to face us. We started to scream and slammed the door. My Dad and Aunt came running to us, asking us what was wrong. We all started telling them what happened at the same time. My Dad opened the door, only to find the chair back in its original position, which left us kids speechless. My Dad scolded us, and told us to stop making stuff up, and went back to the living room. We were still speechless.

We waited a few more minutes after talking to each other, making sure we all saw the same thing. Which we had. After a few more minutes passed, we opened the door again. Within a minute or two, the wheelchair started to move again. We got scared but watched in amazement. The chair made it to the bottom step and started squeaking its way up the steps. We slammed the door again, yelling for our parents. They came to us again, this time frustrated. They opened the door, but again, the chair was in its original position. They told us to get away from the door, and do something else to entertain ourselves. They went back to the living room. 

After several minutes had passed, we went back to the basement door. Trying to get the nerve to open the door again, we just whispered to each other. Once again, we opened the door. And, once again, the chair started creaking up the steps. Once the chair was halfway up, we yelled for our parents. They took a little longer to get to us, but once they did, they watched in horror as the chair was a few steps away from being on the first floor. My Aunt slammed the door, grabbed us kids, and fled from the property. None of us have been back since.

I know this story seems….Outlandish, but it's 100% true. My Dad even remembers this.  I continued to grow up with Paranormal Experiences all around me. Because of this, my husband and I Founded a Paranormal Investigation team to help others with any experiences that are happening to them. I know what it's like to be going through something, and have no one there to help me...

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.

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!!
