Great Book: Paranormal State by Ryan Buell

As a fan of the A&E television series, I recently finished reading the new book "Paranormal State" by Ryan Buell (star of the Penn State Paranormal Research Team) and Stefan Petrucha. It's based on the A&E Series of the same name. 
- This is a well-written book and very enjoyable-especially for fans of the program. Ryan gives background on investigators and provides an intimate look into himself as well. I applaud him for his honesty and sharing personal things with his readers- It certainly made me respect him and admire him. I learned that I share a lot of similarities with Ryan: I had my first encounter with a spirit (not a ghost) when I was a teenager. I have a great partner/husband, love dogs, and try to help others as much as possible with my gift of being a developing medium.
- Ryan provides good background on many things including types of ghosts, EVPs, spirit "games," Ouija boards (Avoid them!), 
- He mentions that he'd been wary of physics and mediums but works with several talented ones now, who have proven themselves very accurate and helpful. 
- The behind the scenes look at various episodes is interesting. Viewers see 22 minutes, while filming and investigations can take days. 
  I highly recommend this book and following Ryan on his blog. I even gave this book as a Christmas present! Check it out. It's great reading.

Famous Figures Who investigated Ghosts

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
At the turn of the century there was an inquisitive frenzy on the possibilities for survival of the spirit in an after life.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir Oliver Lodge, Dr. Schrenk-Notzing, Charles Richet (who coined the word ectoplasm) plus numerous other investigators worldwide spent extensive time and money analyzing the exploits of many channellers and mediums.

Dreams and Comfort in Daily Life

Southwest Airplane- Credit: Southwest
Before Christmas I had a visit from my grandmother - my mother's mother. What's interesting is that she died years before I was born and I had never had contact with her before. I did see her in the light at the cemetery where my dad was being interred back in August 2008. She was with my grandfather and others (including 3 dogs I know).
 - She appeared to me and told me to tell my mother (who is afraid to fly) that she would be with her on her trip. To prove it was her, she said "ask your mother to find the yellow knitted shawl I made for her, and to wear a piece of my jewelry."
 - Now, I don't know of anything that my mother's mother had ever knit - only crocheted tablecloths... and certainly not anything yellow. My mother immediately remembered something yellow and knitted from her mother, that was stored in her hope chest! She found it and took it with her on her holiday visit (via plane). She also found a piece of jewelry that was her mother's and wore that around her neck.
 - Her mother's assurance of watching out over my mother was enough to convince my mother to fly by herself. It was amazing. Having the ability to communicate with spirits is an incredible gift and it allowed my mother to have the courage to travel by herself.

Message in a Concert

A kitchen similar to the one I was shown...
I never know when or where I'm going to get messages, and got a couple at a recent Christmas concert we attended. Whenever I'm in a crowd, it's difficult to know who the message is for because I can't ask everyone!
Anyway, if this message applies to you- take note.
-A woman named Marlene or Marlena showed me that she lived in a farmhouse. She showed me the kitchen and that she spent a lot of time there. She seemed to be of European descent. She had a light colored cat with a dark colored face, and she said she always had her big Bible near a side table. She wanted to let her living relatives know she's fine, and asks that they light a candle for her. Because I don't know who she belongs to, I've lit a candle for her.
