Interview with Rich

Today I’m welcoming Rich, a gentleman who possesses the supernatural ability of Street Light Interference (SLI). Thank you, Rich for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am from a blue collar town in New Jersey. I attended Catholic grade school and High School before heading out to West Virginia University where I earned by BA degree in Political Science. After college I worked in law enforcement as a narcotics officer. Finding the legal aspect of that profession interesting, I decided to apply to law school. I was accepted in a Catholic law school and became an attorney leaving my law enforcement career after 5 years. I moved to the Jersey shore area and opened up my own law practice. Having come from a political family where my dad served as a Mayor and a Member of the NJ Legislature, I also decided to run for public office. I became a candidate for my local town council and again ran for the NJ Legislature. I was not a fortunate as my dad in my pursuit of political office holding but thoroughly enjoyed the campaigns. I am the proud father of one son and grandfather to my four-year grandson. I enjoy the beach, sports, skiing, collecting antique political campaign items, helping others and my precious family time.

 

 

You have the ability of being a Slider. Can you share with us what that means?

I never realized what a Slider was until about 10 years ago when I began researching the phenomena of having the ability to extinguish street lights at random either on a road or a parking lot. My understanding that the term “Slider” is an acronym for “street light interference” and is given to individuals who have experienced this ability. I always thought I was the only one who consistently “knocked out the lights” until researching this topic.

 

 

How long have you had this ability and how did you discover it?

I first noticed this in college (over 40 years ago) when I was entering the parking lot of one of my favorite restaurants. Every time I would get out of my car the light in the parking lot went out and I could barley see while walking to the restaurant. I told several of my friends who thought I was crazy until they witnessed it themselves with me. I have been doing this at random ever since first noticing it when I was a college student. In fact, it happened several time today while driving home form work and again walking to my mailbox in front of my home. There is a street light near my house that goes out about 90% of the time when I approach it. I wonder if my neighbors notice it always going out when I am around! I noticed on occasion, while driving down a highway, the street lights would go out in succession as I approached each light. It happens on different street lights and in mall parking lot at random. I do notice when I am most stressed out (being a lawyer can do that to you) it happens more often.

 

 

How has being a Slider affected your life? And would you consider this ability a blessing to have?

It has not affected my life in any way, shape or form. In fact, I get amused when I see a street light go out, which is on a daily basis. I strongly believe that the light would not go out but for my physical presence near them. The other night I was walking to my car in a parking lot with my girlfriend and remarked that I didn’t see any lights go out yet. Within seconds later the light above my car went out. The lights appear to always re-cycle and come on after a few minutes but it is funny how they go out so often. I would not call it a blessing but now just my normal way of life that I have accepted and have fun with.

 

 

How have people who are near to you, family and friends, reacted to your ability?

At first my friends and family were skeptical as I would be. When they drove or walked with me to witness it first hand they thought it was creepy but now accept it and believe that it is an ability that I have. I remember years ago walking with my son in a mall parking lot at night. My car was on the opposite end of the mall parking lot. As we were walking toward the car, each row of lights would go out as we got near. I mentioned that to my son and he was fascinated. He said we should turn around and walk back the way we came. It happened in reverse as we got to our original location. We laughed about it. Many years later all my family members and many of my friends (at least the ones that I told) witnessed this happening. I rarely discuss it with anyone except my inner circle of friends and family. It has just became a part of my life and I enjoy watching the lights go out. In any given day, I notice about 5 to 7 street lights go out. If I am with a friend or family, I point it out to them as they see the darkened light either slightly flicker or go out completely.

 

 

What would you say to someone who may be skeptical?

I don’t blame them. I doubted this was happening to me for many years until I started to research it and found that I was not alone in this world. It made me comfortable to talk about it to various people and have them see it for themselves when they are with me. I once thought it was from a maybe some silver from a tooth filling while trying to make some sense of it. Now I truly believe there is some sort of electrical impulse that I emit which causes interference with the street pole lights.

 

 

Any words of advice to others who possibly may be Sliders as well?

Embrace it and be amused as I am. There is nothing scary about it. Just have the piece of mind to know that there are other people in the world that have experienced this same Slider ability. You are not crazy!

Interview with paranormal investigator, Elizabeth Saint

Today I’m welcoming paranormal investigator, Elizabeth Saint from Destination America’s television series, Ghosts of Shepherdstown. Thank you, Elizabeth for stopping by!

 

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a big daydreamer with a lot of imagination. As a child, I’d say the one way people would use to describe me was weird. And I was, but weird in a way I just want to make you smile kind of way. However, the response was often “Ewww!” or, again, “You’re weird.” I really thought I’d be an astronaut one day or astronomer, but I had my magician, geologist, and government spy period in there as well. Whenever we took trips to the library I was always reading about ghosts, dinosaurs or outer space. I’m a tomboy and played a lot of sports and video games growing up. However, as much as I was active and social, I was always a bit of a loner. The paranormal experiences I had as a child I think contributed to that even more so as I didn’t feel as if I had anyone to talk to about them. My very first computer was a Macintosh 512Ke. It had the black and white graphics with a floppy disk drive. I would definitely contribute that and those Coleco games from back in the 80s (like Pac Man and Football) to my beginning fascination of technology. To this day, I’m a lover of science, the unexplained and the arts. I can’t imagine my life without one of them.

 

 

You’re a model, a paranormal investigator, an electrical engineer and also an actress. How do you find time to balance everything? And how did all this get started for you?

It all started after High School. I never imagined my life would have simultaneously gone so many different ways. It was a classic case of not really knowing what I wanted to do or who I wanted to be. I started the college journey like most do. I was actually an Art major as I always had a strong background in graphic design, and it seemed like at least a good thing to start out with. About a month in, I received an opportunity to sign with a modeling agency in New York after taking a day trip with my roommate to Manhattan. With my parents blessing, I made the decision to withdrawal from classes that semester and take a chance on something I, quite frankly, wasn’t even sure I would be interested in. I remember going to my professors to have them sign off on my release, and what caught me by surprise was how emotional I was through the process. I knew I was about to start my adult life in a very unconventional way, and there was something scary yet refreshing about that. After a few years, I felt as though something was still missing in my life so I thought well maybe I should at least go back to school and see if that path is any better. I chose to enroll as a Computer Science major knowing it would be something I was good at. It was required as part of the curriculum to take an Introductory Electronic Circuits course, and after the first class I just fell in love with it! So, I immediately switched my major to pursue degrees in both Engineering and Electronic Engineering Technology. In that, I received a lot of wonderful professional opportunities in the field; even living out a lifelong dream I had working on a project at NASA via their reduced-gravity aircraft. Ultimately, I ended up taking a DoD Engineering job down in the DC area, and I’d say that is when a lot really changed for me. I began having a lot more paranormal experiences in the apartment I had just moved into to the point where I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I joined a paranormal team, Maryland Paranormal Research, which was definitely one of the best decisions I had made in my life as it helped opened up a part of me I had kept private for so many years. Short after, I started getting involved in local film projects, as a creative outlet, that quickly evolved to a part of my life I am very passionate about. Honestly, it’s always been a difficult thing to balance life between family and my passions. I’ve been guilty many times in the past of spreading myself too thin.

 

 

What’s it like being a paranormal investigator on Destination America’s television series, Ghosts of Shepherdstown?

Being an investigator for so many years prior to Ghosts of Shepherdstown, my favorite parts of being on the show would definitely be the history and collaboration. It’s rare on residential investigations to get the full picture of a haunting. You can do some research on the land and typically only get a night to investigate the location. Those nights are usually a hit or miss. On the show, we really immersed ourselves in the town for an extended period of time giving us lots of opportunities to collect really good evidence. With the help of Dana Mitchell, Chief Mike King, and Lorie Johnson, we were really able to paint a story of these spirits that we contacted during our investigations that helped create these beautiful period reenactments. Putting the show aside, it was a truly amazing experience to not only work with both Bill and Nick, but share the history of the people that once lived in Shepherdstown.

 

 

Tell us about Ghostly Gadgets and your engineered designs.

When we were filming Ghosts of Shepherdstown, Nick was talking to me about this show he would be filming that fall called Paranormal Lockdown. With my Engineering background, he asked if I’d be interested in making him something for the show. That something ended up being the E-Box they used on the Franklin Castle episode in Season 1. From there, I started making more designs, and that’s when Ghostly Gadgets was born. It’s been an incredible way to combine two of my passions in life, and hopefully contribute to moving the field forward in terms of utilizing technology to capture our subjective experiences.

 

 

Prior to conducting a paranormal investigation, how do you prepare yourself mentally for what you may encounter? Do you practice a certain routine?

It’s important throughout the process to remember why you are there. I find the desire to help someone, including spirits, with whatever is going on in their life or in their home trumps whatever feelings I might personally have on an investigation. So for me it was never really a mental thing. However, I have learned I do have to physically protect myself in preparing for an investigation. My best friend, who is a really talented artist, started making me protection bracelets years ago made of different stones that really help. When I didn’t do this, I found investigations left me very drained and, in extreme cases, would make me quite sick.

 

 

You’re also a sensitive. How would you describe that and when did you first realize that you had this ability?

My earliest memories of being visited by spirits go back to when I was about 4 years old. I think all kids experience these things to an extent. However, over time we are constantly told it doesn’t exist or just our imagination, and I think we just lose that part of ourselves. I wouldn’t say really it was any kind of an ability, but by not talking about it I believe, inevitably, those experiences just continued as I got older. I can’t tell you how many people, both friends and family, when the show came out said to me “I didn’t even know you were into the paranormal!” For me, I feel like a mutt in describing my experiences – a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Depending on the location, sometimes I can hear or see spirits, and other times I am just picking up on their mannerisms and emotions. Because of that, I think saying I’m sensitive to the paranormal makes more sense. A common misconception I think is that I’m some sort of psychic or medium. I know a lot of people would argue by saying, “Well, we can all say we are sensitive and have had sensitive experiences.” I absolutely agree! That’s why the majority of us have developed some interest in the field. After all the inexplainable phenomena I’ve experienced in my life, the true battle for myself is remaining open to receiving these experiences while combating the Engineer inside me constantly demanding scientific explanation or evidence. So much of science, however, is based off of observations rather than what we can physically see. I think if we keep that in mind, we can all get to a place where we are mentally willing enough to be “sensitive” on a more consistent basis.

 

 

As an actress, what kind of roles do you play and is there a favorite one so far?

They always tend to be rather dramatic roles. Not to sound extreme, but for some reason my characters are always either killing people or dying. My favorite role so far has been a recent one shot in England this past year for a horror film called “Howling” by Steven M. Smith to be released on Netflix in the spring. It was the first time I’ve had prosthetic work done to my face, and the transformation my character underwent both physically and emotionally was just an amazing experience.

 

 

Any upcoming projects?

Nothing I can announce yet, but it seems like 2017 is gearing up to be a busy year!

 

 

Where can fans follow you?

If you have Facebook you can go to Facebook.com/OfficialElizabethSaint. Twitter and Instagram are both @ElizabethSaint_. And my websites are ElizabethSaint.com and GhostlyGadgets.com.

 

 

Any words of advice?

Love what you do. My father always stressed that to me over the years, and I’ve found that simple mantra has allowed me to not only discover but fully explore my true passions in life.

Interview with Lee Roberts

Today I’m welcoming Lee Roberts, executive producer and presenter of #haun7edLIVE. Thank you, Lee for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Lee Roberts, I’ve been a Paranormal investigator for over 20 years now. I’ve ran private teams investigating private homes and local properties. Worked on a few TV shows including Mindscape, Ghost Attacks in the USA and worked with the Most Haunted team. I now run Haunted Events UK, write for Haunted Magazine and present #haun7edLIVE via my Facebook page.

I used to be a police officer but left that role under a black cloud leading me to spend time in jail. That was the lowest part of my life but made me who I am today, I never regret anything in life.

 

 

You’re the owner of the paranormal events company, Haunted Events UK. Share with everyone what your company’s about.

I love meeting new people and sharing my experiences with others. I was asked around 8 years ago to run events exclusively for a location called Wollaton Hall, which was used to film Batman – Dark Knight Rises in 2011, the events were so popular Newstead abbey, Nottingham Castle and Sherwood Forest all asked me to do the same on an exclusive basis.. Haunted Events UK was born. I now also manage the bookings at a location called The Village in Mansfield, AMAZING location full of activity.

 

 

Why the paranormal? Was it a personal experience that started it all for you?

I was 6 years old, I was on a school trip at Newstead Abbey, a location I now work with. They were telling us the Ghost story of the white lady when my best friend collapsed. He said he felt like someone was pulling him into the ground. From that point I was hooked on the paranormal and began looking into all kinds of Ghost stories. It also coincided with the release of the original Ghostbusters film which was another reason.

 

 

What’s your most frightening encounter with the ghostly realm?

I was the main investigator at The Clifton Hall Hauntings back in 2008. The place was like the twilight zone, crazy activity, a room full of bees! Team mates collapsing and crying uncontrollably, dark figures showing themselves and more.

 

 

You’re also the executive producer and presenter of #haun7edLIVE. Tell us about that.

#haun7edLIVE came from a TV idea we had, the LIVE was supposed to be a spin off on Facebook but became bigger than we imagined. It’s basically 7 friends, all different backgrounds, abilities and experiences, what we all have in common is the love for the paranormal and enjoy having a laughs with it.

The team consists of Paul Stevenson editor of Haunted Magazine, Jason Wall, Pete Cox, Simon Powell, James Pykett & Andy Soar who is the designer for Haunted Magazine.
We do LIVE Facebook broadcasts via my page www.facebook.com/officialleeroberts
We average around 1.5 million viewers at the moment and growing.

 

 

Being a paranormal investigator, do you follow a certain routine while investigating and how do you protect yourself from anything negative?

I like to go in blind, not know too much and start with a sweep of the full property. I never put any protection up. I’m very scientific minded and don’t believe in protection. If there are Spirits around us then they are there all the time, just because we are Ghost Hunting doesn’t make them any better or worse to require protection.

 

 

Do you feel that all spirits are bad?

Not at all, spirits were once living people, so you treat them as that. Some are good, some bad, some just grumpy old sods. Demonic entities are a different thing altogether. They were never living and are all bad. I still wouldn’t protect myself from them, but treat differently in my approach.

 

 

Do you have any upcoming projects that you’d like to share with everyone?

We have a Spirits of Winter special coming up, more on that will be announced soon.
Also 2017 events are now on sale and selling very fast.

 

 

Where can fans find updates about your shows and events?

For the LIVE shows go to www.facebook.com/officailleeroberts for all updates and to watch live.
For the events go to www.hauntedeventsuk.com

 

 

Any words of wisdom?

Never live your life for others, don’t worry what others think. Believe in yourself and tell yourself you will be successful, believe that with all your heart and it will happen, you have to believe it for others, too.
Paranormal wise, have fun, don’t take it too seriously and enjoy.
Most of all don’t be normal – BE PARANORMAL

Interview with actor, Todd Robbins

Today I’m welcoming Todd Robbins, host of Investigation Discovery’s television series, True Nightmares. Thank you, Todd for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a performing and creative artist that has spent a lifetime immersed in the shadowy worlds of arcane popular entertainment, dark illusions and sinister realities.

 

 

You have quite the impressive background from being an actor, an author, magician and even a carnival performer. What has all that been like for you and what has been the drive that got you to where you are today?

I have always been drawn to character. I like life that has twists and turns. The safe and easy has never called to me.

 

 

You’ve worked for Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Tell us about that and what were some of the highlights of your performances?

Ripley’s is a brand that has presented reality as its most interesting and amazing for almost a hundred years. I love everything that this brand stands for, and it is an honor to have done a few things under its banner. It was a real challenge performing in their show in Branson, MO. That is a town where everything is false, and our show was a bit too real for their taste. When that show ended, I was very glad to get back to NYC, where anything is possible…good and bad.

 

 

You’re also the host of the television series, True Nightmares on Investigation Discovery (ID). What was the spark that got you into this role?

True Nightmares grew out of my theater show called Play Dead. I created that show with Teller (of Penn & Teller) and he directed me in it. That show was filled with stories of people, some good and some not so good, that had a relationship with death during their lives. We used magic as special effects to give a sense that these dead people were gone but they were not far away, and when they came back to visit the living, the resulting spectacle was terrifying. I was approached by Discovery Studios to develop a TV project along these lines and Investigation Discovery saw that I told true stories of dark people with a twist that was complimentary to the content of their channel but also an expansion of that they currently present. In the first meeting with the network I brought up the idea of have me “ghosted” in the reenactment scenes, popping up when things take a turn towards the evil. With Executive Producer Eddie Barbini, I developed the concept into a series. The result is a show that presents quirky stories of murder and mayhem that all have an ironic twist to them. I look upon my role not so much as a host or narrator, but much more of a storyteller. This lifts the series out of the docu-drama genre and puts it into a whole different field.

 

 

Share with everyone what your book, The Modern Con Man: How to Get Something for Nothing is about and where can readers get their very own copy.

This book is about the mind of the con artist, and the best way to understand it is to try out some simple cons and scams that you can perpetrate on your friends and family. The book, along with three DVDs that compliment it, are available on Amazon.

 

 

What have been some of your most memorable moments throughout your career?

I came upon the world of the sideshow when I was a teenager and was lucky to have learned how to do all the classic stunts like sword swallowing and fire eating from performers that were the last generation of true carnival and circus sideshow entertainers. It’s true that I have devoured somewhere in the neighborhood of 5,000 light bulbs. I learned it from a fellow that did an act called The Human Ostrich and it consisted of him consuming things like lit matches and cigarettes, razor blades and tin cans.

 

 

Do you have any upcoming projects?

Yes. I am working on a wicked storytelling podcast that will be titled Dark Illusions, Darker Reality, and there are a couple of TV projects that are in the planning stages right now. One is a travelogue that tells the twisted history of places I visit called Down a Road, Darkly, and a few others that too early to speak about. Yes, the word “dark” does seem to be theme in much of what I do!

 

 

Where can fans follow your work?

They can follow me on twitter @toddrobbins, on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Todd-Robbins-923440934335323/ and at my website www.toddrobbins.com

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

Live each day as if it was your last, because one day it will be…and for many, it’s later than you think!

Interview with film director, Michael G. Kehoe

Today I’m welcoming back director, Michael G. Kehoe to discuss his new horror film, AliceThank you, Michael for stopping by!

 

 

Tell everyone a little about yourself.

I was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up going to a Catholic school. My mother was a theater director in the local parish. One of the first films that caught my attention when I was very young was a film by an Australian director Nicolas Roeg titled “Walkabout”. Roeg was a Cinematographer on such films like “Fahrehheit 451”, Second Unit on “Lawrence of Arabia” just to name a few. So his attention to detail as far as composition and light was something that caught my attention for some reason.
My family moved to Ithaca and while I attended high school I became interested in drama and started acting. I wanted to direct so I approached the school and a sports booster club to produce the play “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. I produced it, directed it and played the leading role of R. P. McMurphy. The play was a success for the sports booster club and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I was then approached by my high school English teacher to apply to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. I then waited for word, and was finally accepted.
After completing my studies there I left for California and took a job as a bartender. There is a longer story, but it would end up being a book!

 

 

Your latest horror film is titled, Alice. Prior to it becoming a feature film, it was the short film called Hush which received more than 30 phenomenal awards. Share with us Hush’s success and how it became Alice.

I had been developing an idea that would take place in one location with female leads. I happen to have 4 sisters, they’re independent and their personalities are very strong. I have a great relationship with all of them. My mother, was a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, and she was a very positive inspiration for me to pursue a career as a filmmaker. All of this is what lit the fuse of inspiration. I began writing a screenplay and did not have a title. The screenplay was written quickly and I knew that every screenplay I write will have a follow up journey of a rewrite and another rewrite and another and a polish and a touch up, this is the life of a writer! Within the untitled screenplay I pulled a scene that although was less than 5 minutes long, it had somewhat of a three act structure. I then decided to take that scene and shoot it as a short film. The scene itself is the catalyst of the third act in the feature script.

I had several ideas on how I wanted to shoot the film and then contacted cinematographer and long time friend John Connor. We met and discussed the approach to the film for several months. We created story boards, developed movement of the shots and composition. John suggested we shoot the film with anamorphic lenses and that was the scope I wanted for the film giving it a grand look. We then discussed lighting. Lighting for this genre is extremely important and the right lighting can give the film a style that remains in peoples minds after they’ve left the theater. I must give credit to John Connor for the style and the lighting. At first he was reluctant when I said I did not want to use any lights at all. We looked at dozens of films that inspired us over the years and John came up with an idea that created the style of the film. It has his mark on it. I then brought on a talented editor Michael Trent. Michael and I had a friendship already through our sons, he loves filmmaking as much as I do and I felt as if we were old friends when we began discussing the short film HUSH. Michael talked about the science of the horror genre. I loved those discussions we had over coffee. Each and every moment was touched upon and I knew Michael Trent was the right choice. I not only consider him a friend, but he is my editor!

We shot the short film in one day, less than 11 hours. We came prepared and the cast and crew were spot on! At the time, I fooled around with different titles such as “Dark Rain”, “The Night It Came” and several others. Then, a friend of mine read the short script and in the script there was dialogue that the baby sitter had: “Hush, I’m coming”. So, we decided to use “HUSH”. The short film went on to win 34 awards, including a Wes Craven award. The buzz for the short was extremely rewarding and it gave us faith to continue with the feature.

I then received a call from producer Malek Akkad (producer of the HALLOWEEN franchise), he had screened the short film and read the script. We met, solidified a deal and went over the ideas for the story. Malek is a passionate producer with attention to story. He and I worked diligently on the script and spent hours going over the approach of the cast. We both agreed to avoid the cliche’ of nudity and blood and worked the relationships out that would be relatable to the female audience. We moved on and scheduled the film to shoot with an 18 day schedule that ended out being shorter than that. Believe me, if I had more time we would have used it! But we accomplished what we set out to do and I am very proud of this film.

 

 

What makes Alice the “must see” film for all horror fans?

I think the element of “what’s behind the door?” is always something that horror fans love. I learned quickly that horror fans are loyal and sharp. You can’t cheat a horror fan, if you do, you’ll never hear the end of it. The genre itself has many flavors, there’s ghosts, vampires, monsters, killers, demons and the list goes on. Each of these flavors has a following that is dedicated to the history, the tone and the style. I hope we can give the fans a ride that will open the doors to a sequel! I think they’ll enjoy this as the fans enjoyed the short film. We want to scare the crap out of the audience!

 

 

What are some things people are saying about this exciting film so far?

During post, the technicians have stated that “ALICE” is creepy with great jump scares. They’ve said “you took us on one path and then jolted us to another”. No one on the outside has even seen the film, not the crew, not the cast. Only the small circle that pulled this all together. The word has been very positive.

 

 

Is there a teaser trailer available?

We’re working on a trailer right now. In fact, we will be announcing a contest on social network very soon!

 

 

When will Alice be released for all to see?

At the present time “ALICE” is due to be released in February.

 

 

Where can horror fans find updates about Alice?

Right now people should log on to Facebook and “Like” the “ALICE The Movie” page: https://www.facebook.com/alicemovie2017/?fref=ts
There will be updates and information being released. Be sure to keep an eye out for the big event we will be announcing.
People can follow me on social network: Instagram; @mikehoe11 Twitter: @MikeyKehoe https://twitter.com/MikeyKehoe

 

 

I want to thank you Sheila Renee Parker for your support and your dedication to the paranormal. Your voice should be heard all across the country. I hope you will continue to support the films I make in the future! I would also like to thank the people you inspired to follow me. I hope I can bring the film to a theater near you!

Thank you,
Michael G. Kehoe

Interview with Mike

Today I’m welcoming a gentleman named Mike who has had a life changing experience. Was it a Near Death Experience or something more? Here is Mike to tell us his story.

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am just an ordinary guy that had an extraordinary experience. Just a regular guy, like you might see at the store, or at the game. I enjoy doing landscaping and try to make a living at it. I am a fairly creative person and enjoy art and music very much. Something very profound did happen to me however, and I thought I would share that with you.

One night, at the beginning of last year I experienced a heart attack. In typical stubborn male fashion, I excused the symptoms. I figured I would get better, and everything would be ok. After sweating a river for about 3 hours, I became overwhelmed by a feeling of eminent doom and decided that a trip to the ER was probably going to have to go ahead and happen. The good doctors told me I was in a bad way and needed some minor cath surgery and maybe more. So they prepped me and went in. I was about tuckered out by then. Half my heart hadn’t had oxygen for hours and the other half had about done all it could do to get me that far. They lost me. I went away. I left the hospital. I came back. I left again. My body was on that table the whole time, but I wasn’t there the whole time.

Both times when I left, I experienced things. I was shown things. I believe I was shown things in a way I could interpret and understand them. I’m not sure how long I was away either time, but the first time seemed rather brief. I immediately passed through a barrier. The overwhelming sense of permanency was very evident. It had happened. What was done was done, and I could not change anything. I found myself at a fork in a trail, in a beautiful wooded area. One trail went up and to the left. It was blue and white up there and very pretty. There were beautiful flowers and birds. The other fork went down and to the right. It was red and black. There were no flowers, or anything else growing there, only dead snags. It was gnarly and harsh and looked very uninviting. Something, I was not allowed to see, blocked my path at that fork. I could go down neither trail. I found myself suddenly back in the hospital. I was happy I was back.

I didn’t even have time to gain my bearings, or try to comprehend what was going on. I knew I was in surgery, and I just died. Then It happened again. I passed again through that boundary and thought the worst, surely this was it. I was gone much longer this time. Very intense things happened. Some are very personal and touch on some very emotional subjects, so I won’t go into great detail, but I went for one heck of a ride. I was shown many things. I was shown things from the past, the present and what I believe was the future. They were things that pertained to me and my life. I was then uploaded, if you will, with a lot of knowledge and switched on. It is very difficult to describe with words, but it was extremely intense. I walked by many loved ones that had passed. I arrived at a beach. It was a beautiful place. It was surreal. A lady stood on the beach. It looked like my mom, from a long time ago, when she was younger and healthier. I walked over to her and she turned to me. It was my mom, who had passed just about 6 months prior. She looked at me, and shook her head no, and smiled the biggest smile I have ever seen. Then I was back on the table, once again.

There was much more to it than that, but that is what happened to me that night, and early morning. I do not refer to my experience(s) that night as an NDE. In my mind, there was no “near” in the equation. I was dead. I don’t mean kind of dead, but dead. I was allowed to come back, twice. I am lucky. I may never understand everything I was shown that night, but it was life altering, to say the least.

 

What was your life like prior to your experience?

Life, for the most part, was fairly average. I love the outdoors, so I have always been outside doing something. I enjoy amateur astronomy, camping, hiking, etc. I worked in the nuclear industry for many years. I have always been fairly intelligent, but rather average. I was married for many years, and I have a wonderful son that I have always spent a lot of time with. I have had a fairly normal life, in most respects.

 

How has this changed your life? Have you undergone an awakening, perhaps with an emergence of abilities?

Dramatic change occurred in my life. I have always been rather intuitive, but I experienced a type of awakening, to use your word. That’s a good word for it. I am switched on now. Everything is different. I just know certain things now, and I don’t know how. I don’t even really know how to explain it in a way that makes sense, but I just know stuff. I am more religious to a degree, but I am much more spiritual. I feel a very clear connection with the universe that I could not recognize before. I feel very tuned in. I feel an overwhelming sense of empathy. I sense things.

A few of the things that have changed for me include, now having very intense dreams, now believing in past lives, believing in angels and now having the ability to sense the aura of some people. I can’t really see the aura with my eyes, but sense is a good word for it. Not with everyone, but yet even sometimes, just from a picture. The dreams are sometimes varied, but often of a recurring theme. They often portray or present what would seem to be things from past lives, in vivid detail. I am still absorbing all this and trying to comprehend it all.

 

What would you say to anyone who may be skeptical?

Skepticism is healthy. I might not believe someone if they said they experienced the things I experienced, if I hadn’t experienced it myself. I understand skepticism, especially when the experience is incredible. One day they will know also. It will come to pass for them too, when their time comes. It makes no difference to me, on a personal level, if someone believes my experience, or not. That choice is up to each person.

 

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

In a word, love. Love is the only thing that matters, because it is the only thing that can truly transcend the boundary between life and death. Love is the only thing that has any true value, in this great universe we live in. Live hard and love hard. Tomorrow is not promised.
