“Our Night at the Myrtles Plantation”

Our night at the Myrtles Plantation

(***A true paranormal encounter experienced by paranormal investigators, Lori and Brian Davies of NWA Ghost Connection.***)

 

 

John Winters Room

3 p.m. check in, we arrived at 2 p.m. anxious to get there and excited about crossing off a bucket list item. Brian bought me a night at the Myrtles for my 50th birthday gift. He knew it was on a list of things I wanted to do since I was nineteen. We purchased some things in the gift shop and checked in. We were taken to the house to see our room and my gift kicks in as the door opens. At the top of the stairs I was greeted by a woman who appeared to be in mourning. She was in a black dress with a veil coming down over her face. I was taken a back by her but proceeded up the large staircase that led into the house to our room. The young lady who showed us to our room politely stated all the rules of the house and then opened our door and handed Brian the keys. Our night began.

We walked in and acquainted ourselves with the room, all the while this woman standing in our doorway. I asked Brian if he had seen or sensed anything. He said how weird it was, the water started dripping in the tub and he tried to turn the water off, but it was tightly off (weird). We had a quick, odd moment and he left to go get our luggage for the night. I sat in the chair in the corner watching her and when alone I asked her what her name was and she replied, “Sara M Bradford”, and then walked in a little girl who stood along side her in a pretty, little blue dress and blondish-brown hair. I assumed had some relation to her, but the child wouldn’t speak to me. 

I heard a commotion in the hall and stuck my head out when I encountered another employee of the Myrtles and I asked her if I could ask her a question, she replied sure and came into the room. I then asked her if she had heard of this Sara or knew of her or was my being a medium allowing everyone to come through. She took two steps back and asked me, Sara? I replied, yes, she is standing right there pointing towards the door, she said her name was Sara M Bradford. The lady looked at me and smiled and said you are the first one who has called her that. I responded, called her what, Sara? She said no, calling her by her maiden name, Bradford. The employee then said her name was Sara Matilda Bradford Woodruff and her father built the Myrtles. 

After some light conversation she invited me to do a private tour, with me being a physical medium she wanted me to walk the home and tell them what I could see and hear along with feel. I agreed because I was curious about her story and why she was so sad. As the night went on I ended up hurting my knee and had a difficult time walking, so of course I couldn’t walk the house and I wonder to this very day if that was the plan the whole time. During the night in our room the curtain continuously moved on just one side, the chandelier rotated back and forth and then my fan got knocked over against the wall which created a level of uneasiness. At this time I pulled out our infrared camera and began to take pictures and, what do you know, there she was in all her glory. My husband ran downstairs to talk to the tour guide and showed her the photo and, what do you know, she identified her as Sara. 

They were so excited to see this photo and sad I could not do my private walk and as they were all looking at this photo I took I was settling in to sleep because I was in pain from my knee. Brian came back up and we took several videos of the excitement in our room and then decided to sleep so I could rest before the long drive home. Well, the night was crazy as around 2 a.m. I saw a man at the foot of our bed dressed in confederate attire and just starring at me. I was unnerved and asked him what he wanted, which was when I began to taste blood and have stomach issues and he pointed at the wall and disappeared, well…..that was interesting, and the footsteps and humming I heard all night made it difficult to sleep. 

As day break rose, I was seriously done at this point and Brian woke up and I needed to leave, with all the energies in that home, lack of sleep, hurt knee, I think I had seen enough of the house for this trip. I have since promised to go back to walk the house for the woman and send them a copy of my photo so they can share my night with Sara. All I could gather from her was how sad she was for all her loss of children, father, and husband. She just did not get to live how she wanted. The humming was from the room we stayed in which was the old nursery, go figure… all in all, it was a sleepless night, but I do recommend the stay just for the interaction with the spirit world. The John Winters room was definitely a hit on my night.

Interview with Psychic Medium, Sammy Rawlinson

Today I’m welcoming psychic medium, Sammy Rawlinson. Thank you, Sammy for stopping by!

 

 

 Can you tell us a little about yourself? 

I am a psychic medium, spiritualist and a paranormal investigator. I have been doing this stuff pretty much most of my life. It goes right back in the family as far as I know, 4 generations. I could not imagine a life without it!

 

 

At what age were you when you first realized you were a psychic medium? And what was it like growing up with your ability?

First, I realized I was a psychic at a very young age although I did not understand what it was back then. It was much later on I realized I was a medium. From the age of 5, I would have premonitions in dreams and visions, which would come true, this was very often. Sometimes big life changing things and sometimes very small random things. I did not see a ghost that I knew was definitely a ghost till much later when I was 17. I think I seen some earlier, but did not understand what I was seeing and wrote it off as my mind playing tricks. At 17, I seen a friend’s father who had tragically passed, appear in front of me while I sat with her which made me run out of her house! It was hard growing up with the ability because people did not believe what I said I could see, even my father was a strong non believer. There were times I worried I was mentally ill, but my mother, a psychic herself told me one day it would all make sense. I had no control over the ability back then. It was constant and could happen anywhere. I learnt not to talk about it and just to keep what I saw to myself. I got my first pack of tarot cards at age 12, they were my mothers. I spent years secretly learning them. As I got older, I learnt to turn the ability on and off and use it at will. I read 100s of books and trained myself, up by now, I did not care anymore what people had to say, I knew what I could see.

 

 

How do you protect yourself from any negative energies and/or entities that may try to be in contact with you or cause you harm?

Before I do readings for people, I have to protect myself and them by imagining white light surrounding both of us. Also, you can use a cape of protection and see this cover you for the reader. The hood must be down so the crown chakra can connect to the universe and spirit. For the sitter, the hood must cover their head fully. You also must ground yourself. The same goes for paranormal investigations and house cleansings. Chances are, you are going to encounter something that does not want to move on so it’s not going to take you being there lightly. Some people use prayers and religious symbols. For me it’s all about the intention of the mind and white light. Low/negative spirits can’t go near white light or enter it. As light and color defines the levels of planes on the other side and spirits can only dwell on the level they are in line with. If it’s a negative spirit, it won’t be in line with white light as that defines higher planes. Also, you must have no fear and be firm with your thoughts. Sage is used also.

 

 

You’re also a paranormal investigator. Being a psychic medium, do you solely rely upon your psychic ability while conducting an investigation or do you incorporate the use of technological equipment as well?

As a paranormal investigator I work with a team made up of different people. They have the technological equipment and I have the ability. We work together and what a psychic says should work with and be backed up by their machines in correspondence.

 

 

 

What has been the most bizarre paranormal case you’ve investigated so far?

It was very recent, a family called me in to do a house cleansing to a new built home. It’s rare in these cases, it’s more than just someone’s imagination and normally has a rational explanation. More rarely it can be a passed on loved one trying to get a message across. But when I walked in this house it was pretty clear this was not going to be a normal day at the office! The atmosphere was electric. I have a check list I go through with people to establish on a level of 1 to 10 what’s happening in their home. From 1 being their imagination. 2 electrical interference and so on, 10 is a full blown haunting. I just scrapped the list in this house. As soon as I walked in I seen a man that looked like a monk just walk straight up the stairs. There were children spirits running around, it was amazing. I had to sage the full house and move on the monk-like spirit who had been making his presence very known. I don’t think he was evil, I think he just did not like sharing the home. After this, the family showed me the footage they had caught on a camera baby monitor and told me the house had been built on the site of an old work house and hospital. The footage showed a man in a long dark robe. And a child spirit in bed with their child just staring at her (the child said she had a little friend called Rosy). Also, there was a video of a man shaped black shadow moving up and down the stairs. The family said I could post the footage and it made quite a stir in the press! Up to now I think that was the best.

 

 

In your own words, what does it mean to be a spiritualist?

As a spiritualist, you are an advocate for the spirit world or afterlife, and follow the faith of spiritualism. The faith’s main teachings are there is life after death and we can communicate with the other side. Everything in life is governed by a karma balance and law. And that the other side’s primary goal is to prove to people there is another side and natural law to the universe. As a spiritualist your job is to try to show this.

 

 

You also have a YouTube channel, tell us about that and how followers can subscribe.

I use my YouTube channel to cover most things I do connected to my work from paranormal investigations, ghosts, tarot card readings, predictions to mediumship as I know people have an interest in this stuff. My YouTube channel is called Sammy Rawlinson and the link is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOEbDKnncdmH_bqcmgM1whg .

 

 

Anything else you’d like to share about your gifts/ abilities?

I just can’t wait to learn and develop them more as this stuff takes years. I hope other people can develop theirs also and not be afraid to because of judgment in life from other people who don’t understand psychic ability. So many people’s abilities are suppressed because we live in a society of superstition and distrust. The amount of people who say to me I have seen something, I am psychic or I believe but I can’t say for fear of what other people would think of me! Is crazy. When used properly the gift can help people so much and even change their perspective on life.

 

 

Any positive words of wisdom?

Do not be afraid to follow your own path in this life.
