|A full moon on a chilly night in Northern Minnesota|
A week ago, the SIM crew went on the road to beautiful northern Minnesota. It had been years since I had been in Bemidji, the place I went to college and also the place I met my hubby. Bemidji has changed - a lot, it isn't the same old place I remember that's for sure. Some places are the same, but as you drive into town on the south side I barely recognized the place of my wild college days.
We didn't spend much time there as we had an appointment to meet with a Native American paranormal group. The Native American Paranormal Society had six members in attendance to meet with us. We got along fabulously well, and exchanged ghost stories and showed pictures and well, had a very fun meeting with them. I can see our teams working together in the future as they have much to offer to us, especially so when working on cases on Native american lands, they speak fluent Ojibwa, and would understand any voices speaking this language, as we wouldn't.
The hotel staff were wonderful, and loved loved loved the idea that we were paranormal investigators. They made us feel a bit like celebrities, and you know most of them had a supernatural experience to tell us about. It was fabulous, even if it it was like a big pj party and you had to wait to use the biffy ;)
Our investigation on Saturday night was back in the big woods. A chilly 30 degree evening, a full moon, and a clear sky made a perfect setting for a late October ghost hunt.
The SIM Crew had some personal experiences, and encountered lots of activity during the investigation. There were several times when I felt spirits throughout the 110+ acre property. The dense tingly electric feeling that I get when there are ghosts near I felt many times during the night. Several pictures I shot show orbs on every part of the property. It is felt that true orbs are indicative of paranormal presences.
|Look to the right of the Birch Tree - an true orb. Orbs made up of moisture and are not paranormal are located on the left hand side of this photo. The difference is clear.|
