Hi Guys

I am new here. My name is Lyndsy and I'm 18 from Northern Ireland. I did a seance about three weeks ago in an old mansion from the 1700s nothing much happened. I used to read tea leaves and give readings etc but I don't do that anymore but I am still a spectator. I am wondering if anyone can read photographs and/or teach me to do the basics??

It is a forums and chatrooms, focussed on all areas of the metaphysical, paranormal, spiritual and psychic, and also has blog, gallery, games arcade and media player on site to keep members entertained. This is in no way designed to take any members away from this community, I believe there is always room for us to interract in more than one place :)I myself am interested in all areas of mediumship and spirituality, especially physical mediumship, which I am developing in.

SPECTRAL SMELL? [11 May 2006|05:59am]

[ mood | awake ]

Last night, my sister and I were vegging in the living room, watching the idiot box, when suddenly a strange smell awakened our suspicions.

"Do you smell that?" She asked me, as I was just beginning to clamp my hand over my nose. Right at that moment, I had smelled it as well. It was a horrible, powerful, putrid smell that might best be described as an unintelligible cross between hot, rotting garbage and rancid meat/dead things. It was awful, and it was everywhere, and it came on so suddenly!

We started sniffing around the room, searching for the source of the odour. For the first time ever in my life I think, I felt like I was going to toss my cookies due to an odour. One of our cats had just been lying on the floor in front of me and had walked away, so I sniffed him and he seemed "clean." Every now and again, I'd catch a whiff of what I thought was the "eye" of the stench, but then the odour seemed to move and I was unable to determine where it was coming from. Sometimes, our trashy neighbours leave their garbage on the patio and the stink wafts over to our apartment, but after opening the patio door and taking a good sniff, I found that the neighbours garbage didn't smell at all. Nor did anything in the front of the house. Whatever it was, it was centered in the living room. But there wasn't anything in the living room (that we could find) that reeked!

Then, as suddenly as it had come, the stench disappeared.

Both of us were thinking it (I thought of it immediately, how unscientific of me): some sort of bad mojo? Once my sister had voiced the concern, she stated: "I think it's coming back!" but I grounded the urge to sensationalize. "No, it's gone." I replied, before even allowing myself to smell.

What's so weird about the experience was that we both smelled the whatever-it-was at the same precise moment. Also strange was the pungency of the odour (we're talking really bad), the fact that we had no windows open, and the fact that we never did pinpoint the source of it or where it vanished to.

The two of us, together, have experienced odd, fly-by-night "episodes" in the past but never with a smell attached.

I wonder what it could have been...

Hello all!

I'm doing a painting for an art show that I have vague ideas for, but I thought you could help me.  I want the painting to have a Dark Victorian theme, and I also want use memento mori imagery in it.  So...if you could reply to this post with some of your most interesting/beautiful pictures of any kind of memento mori and other dark imagery, you may well see it incorporated into my painting!  I would appreciate your help very, very much!!!

Royal Derwent - Ghost Photo [23 Oct 2005|02:12am]

Hello to all. For those who may or may not already know, I am researching The Royal Derwent / Willow Court complex - an old, abandoned mental asylum in New Norfolk, Tasmania, Australia. Over the next 12 - 18 months, I hope to make an independent documentary.

I just wanted to share a photo from our most recent trip. It was taken through a broken window looking into one of the wards. The camera I used was a Cannon EOS 300, a 400 speed film and the flash was used.

Have a look at the glass panel, second from the left. I have also included a close up of the "face".

Pitures are under the cutCollapse )

If you would like to know more about the project and don't already have me on your friends list, please visit royalderwent

I also have a website - http://www.royalderwent.biz

some HAUNTED KANSAS sites.


check out the section on Stull, KS. i went to the Stull cemetary about 5-6 years ago, while the burned out church was still standing. very spooky place. "gateway to hell", etc.

Here is a website with lots of Stull pictures and articles.

another Stull related site

Kansas ghosts and hauntings. this one has a good section on Atchison, Ks (aka "the most haunted city in Kansas"). i've yet to actually go there, though i've always wanted to. there is also a section on Theorosa's Bridge in Valley Center,KS which i've been to several times and nothing great has ever happened. i've noticed that there are very similar legends in other states, it makes me wonder if this is only a legend and nothing more.

The Royal Derwent, or "Willow Court" was the oldest mental institution in Australia before it's closure in the late 90's. Situated in New Norfolk, Tasmania, the majority of the building lies abandoned, pending future redevelopment.

But my interest is in the urban legends and myths of hauntings. Through studying the history of the site and gathering these stories, I am hoping to make an independent documentary over the next 12 to 18 months.

If you have heard stories of the site, enjoy history or just love stories of strange occurrences and hauntings, please friend my journal as I document my journey...

Hello. [20 Aug 2005|03:14am]

I just joined and I thought that I should say 'Hello'. I feel like I should say something about myself, but I'm not sure what to say. I grew up in a family where séances were a seemingly normal practice. I myself have conducted a few séances, though nothing really special. I really don't know what else to day, but I look forward to conversing with everyone.

I'm going to turn ::gulp:: 28 this year, and my dream is to complete my feature film The Ballad of Burd Janet before I turn 30. In order to do this, I need to raise money. Help me get this movie made by attending my fundraiser, which will be held the night before my 28th birthday!

The amazing acts include:
KAMIKAZE HEARTS: a new ensemble that performs new music with a uniquely rootsy feel

SWEET LORETTA'S SNAKE OIL JUG BAND: the North Shore's finest jug band, serving up a set of their wonderful music

THE GRINDHOUSE MARIONETTES -- a theatrical troupe of human marionettes in a new sketch

"THE UNHAPPY MEDIUM" -- the short that started it all, in which a young man runs afoul of his temperamental aunt and throws a seance.

Plus some great surprises and special guest appearances!

A good time will be had by all!
