National Paranormal Day

Hey, hey, hey all you paranormal peeps! Today is May 3rd and it has been brought to my attention that today is also known as National Paranormal Day (an unofficial National holiday). However, the origin of this spooky day is unknown….. BUT…. go out there and continue to investigate those ghostly haunts, supernatural specters and anything else that goes bump in the night!

If it makes your skin crawl and those tiny, little hairs on the back of your neck stand up…. even if it’s not scary, if you have a paranormal tale that’s rather uplifting and positive, then I wanna hear about it and so does everyone else. We wanna know your ghost story! Don’t be afraid…. share! 😉

 

Happy National Paranormal Day all you beautiful people!

Men In Black

“Here come the men in black, the galaxy defenders……” ok, no worries, I’m not going to start singing the song. I’m sure Will Smith wouldn’t approve and luckily for you, by reading this, you’re not tortured by hearing my unmelodious voice. 😉 And I’m not here to talk about the hit film starring the very talented Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. However, I am a huge fan of their movies!

BUT……. I am talking about the supposedly real-life individuals known as the “Men In Black” (MIBs). Just like the Hollywood portrayals, these non-fictitious characters primarily wear black suits, white button-up shirts and black ties. They are reportedly some sort of secret organization that has been obviously denied by certain officials. It’s been said that the mysterious Men In Black appear anytime UFO sightings have been experienced. Why? Possible cover-up involvement? To insure that UFO witnesses remain quiet about what they have seen? By intimidating and threatening those who dare to speak publicly about any sort of UFO interactions?

Throughout recent decades, many supporters/investigators of ufology have supposedly been harassed and some have even died by mysterious causes. Are the MIBs to blame for all of this misfortune? Who knows?? It’s also alleged that the Men In Black have taped and recorded UFO hunters’ phones.

I personally have never experienced anything like this nor have I seen an alien or UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) of any kind. I’ve only witnessed shadow people, clairaudient experiences, touched by spirits and other paranormal encounters similar to those, but never aliens. I do know people who have claimed to have seen visitors from other planets, but none of them have ever told me about any visitors from the “Men In Black”.

So, do these well-dressed individuals actually exist or….??? I wouldn’t wanna find out…….

The X-Files Revival

Do you love The X-Files? Without a doubt, I’m a HUGE fan! I honestly don’t think there was ever an episode that I didn’t watch. Fox Mulder paired up with Dana Scully was absolutely brilliant! Together, they created an undeniable balance, Scully with her scientific reasoning and Mulder with his open-minded desire to search for the unknown.

One of my all time fave episodes was the sixth one from season six titled, How The Ghosts Stole Christmas with Lily Tomlin and Ed Asner. It aired on December 13, 1998. Here’s the IMDb link describing it, so check it out…. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0751138/

And for those of you who are X-Files fans, I’m sure you’re just as excited as I am about this Sunday night when The X-Files returns. The X-Files Revival is definitely one I will not miss. In fact, my DVR is ready and waiting to record each episode of this much anticipated mini series.

Recently I was asked by Kevin Hale, host and producer of BlogTalkRadio’s Shooting From The Lip to co-host with him for a very special show. Our guest was Chris Elias, administrator of The X-Files Group on Facebook. An extremely impressive group with well over 14,000 members. The show aired this past Wednesday night at 10pm E/ 7pm P. Topic of discussion? The X-Files Revival, of course! And here is the link so you can listen to it as well… https://soundcloud.com/423radio/sftl-110-the-x-files-revival-preview-chris-elias

Be sure to join us every Wednesday night, same time throughout the entire airing of The X-Files mini series as we discuss the exciting continuation!

 

Interview with Dr. Barry Taff

Dr. Barry Taff is a renowned parapsychologist that I have had the privilege to interview via telephone a while back. The reason why I’m just now publishing his interview is because I didn’t want to do so until I finished reading his book, Aliens Above, Ghosts Below.

First off, before I continue, I’d like to share with you the interesting bio that Dr. Taff has shared with me. Not only does it give a brief description of this esteemed intellectual, it also describes the many different media personalities and agencies that have trusted Dr. Taff’s highly regarded research and skills.

 

 

Dr. Barry E. Taff

Biography

Dr. Barry E. Taff, who holds a doctorate in psychophysiology with a minor in biomedical engineering, is a world-renowned parapsychologist who worked out of UCLA’s former Parapsychology Laboratory from 1969 through 1978 as a research associate. During his four-decade career, Dr. Taff has investigated more than 4,500 cases of ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists and conducted extensive studies in telepathy and precognition, eventually developing the initial protocols and methodologies for what was later termed “remote viewing”. He also, was himself, investigated as a psychic subject, the results of which were published in Behavioral Neuropsychiatry, “A Laboratory Investigation of Telepathy: The Study of A Psychic”, Vol. 6, Nos. 1-12, April-December 1974-January-March, 1975.

One of the cases Dr. Taff investigated in 1974 gained international fame as the book and motion picture, The Entity, starring Barbara Hershey and Ron Silver, released by Fox in 1983. Dr. Taff served as technical advisor on The Entity as well as being represented in the film by the character “Gene Kraft”. What’s unknown by the media is the fact that, in real life, The Entity followed its female victim for quite some time after our initial investigation, continuing its vociferous nature. Doris Bither died in 1999 of cardiopulmonary arrest at the age of 58.

Dr. Taff has appeared on numerous TV and radio programs including Coast to Coast A.M.with George Knapp CBS News, KNBC News, KABC News, Strange Universe, Unsolved Mysteries, The Joan River’s Show, A Current Affair, Hard Copy, Sightings, Judge for Yourself, The Extraordinary, The Montel Williams Show, The Wil Shriner Show, The Suzanne Somers Show, was a recurring guest on NBC’s The Other Side, Haunted History, Mysteries & Scandals, ABC’s World’s Scariest Ghosts Caught On Tape, The Girls Next Door, Sci-Fi Channel’s An Unknown Encounter & California’s Most Haunted (highest rated shows in Sci-Fi’s history) for which Dr. Taff also served as creative consultant and technical advisor. Taff also has recently appeared in the DVD Special Feature sections of The Mentalist (Warner Bros/CBS-TV, 2009) and the feature film, The Haunting in Connecticut “Anatomy Of A Haunting” (2009) and the 20th Anniversary Re-Release Pkg. of Friday The 13th (Paramount Pictures) and most recently, Ghostly Lovers on The Travel Channel (Feb. 2011), The Ghost Speaks, 2012, as well as Ghost Adventures (2014) and Ghost Adventures Aftershocks, March 2015

He has consulted for government, business, and law enforcement, including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Language Institute (DLI), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the FBI, Interpol, LAPD, California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department, and the Westminster Police Department. He has served as a technical advisor or script doctor on the films Logan’s Run, Demon Seed, Altered States, Poltergeist, and The Entity. Dr. Taff has written numerous articles for magazines and journals, and has been featured in many books on paranormal subjects ranging from precognition to UFOs.

In the spring of 2010, Dr. Taff’s, book, Aliens Above, Ghosts Below: Explorations of the Unknown is available at http://www.cosmicpantheon.com, Amazon, Barnes & Nobel and book stores everywhere.

 

 

Aside from Dr. Taff’s research in parapsychology, he also has patented medical devices. He has asked me to share with you the article that he has written in regards to the subject, Energy Medicine: Selling A Car To A Caveman. Here is where Dr. Taff’s article can be found, https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140626172738-85610322-energy-medicine-selling-a-car-to-a-caveman?trk=prof-post

As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t want to publish Dr. Taff’s interview until I finished reading his book, Aliens Above, Ghosts Below. His book is extremely informative and insightful. I definitely recommend anyone to grab a copy. It is well written with great documentation from a true parapsychologist, Dr. Barry Taff, that has well over forty years experience in the field. Aliens Above, Ghosts Below brings more awareness to ufology and the paranormal, nothing fabricated at all. In fact, what he describes is actually quite chilling.

Back in the early 1970’s, Dr. Taff investigated a case involving a young woman who was repeatedly attacked by an unseen terror. Later, a gentleman by the name of Frank De Felitta wrote a novel about the documented case titled, The Entity that was also adapted into a motion picture. As frightening as The Entity was, that wasn’t the only case where Dr. Taff investigated terrifying encounters of the paranormal. His forty plus years of research has put him up close and personal with some of the most horrific situations that would easily cause sleepless nights for many.

Dr. Barry Taff also has the extraordinary ability of ESP (Extra Sensory Perception). When I asked him what was it like living with this ability his reply was simple, “I don’t know of any other way of living. This is all I know.” He told me that his whole life he has been able to see afflictions in people. And that’s not all. He told me that when he was a little child sitting in the front seat of his parents’ car, he could tell exactly the model and year made of the vehicles passing by without any prior knowledge. When his parents asked how he knew those things, Dr. Taff told me that he would say, “I just know”. All his life he’s been able to “just know”  things. As impressive as that sounds, he said that there have been individuals who weren’t as receptive to his ability.

While on the phone with Dr. Taff, he even shared with me a passion of his….. fast cars.
He proudly told me that he used to race Porsches. “Wow!”, I thought. As Dr. Taff and I conversed, it was quite evident that he was extremely knowledgeable with an indisputable background. He mentioned several different articles like Legacy’s End, Learned Psi: Training To Be Psychic, Implicate Order By Design, Building A Warp Drive Engine, and Looking A Gift Ghost In The Mouth: The Science Of Poltergeists all which can be found on his website: http://barrytaff.net/

Dr. Barry Taff, someone with outstanding credentials and impressive research as a parapsychologist, is very down-to-earth. Conducting the interview with him was not only informative, but enjoyable as well. On a personal note, I feel that I have learned a great deal from all that he has shared!
