“Spooky Random Fact: #9”

“Spooky Random Fact: #9”

It’s said that one can see innocence in a child’s eyes, but there’s definitely nothing innocent when you’re staring face to face with a BEK.

 

Black Eyed Kids (also known as BEKs.) Their origin isn’t clear, but many believe that these young ones are the spirits of lost or murdered children.

Black Eyed Kids are typically known to travel in pairs. Their ages range from eight years to eighteen years old. They have very pale skin and black eyes, showing no pupil or iris. When these children make their approach, they usually ask to be invited in one’s car or home. Almost anyone who’s had an encounter with the BEKs become overwhelmed with a sudden feeling of fear or dread. When turning these kids away, the children show aggression with the intense need to be allowed inside. Those who claim to have encounters with the Black Eyed Kids report that the children refuse to go away until the said person either leaves the scene or closes the door on them. However, there are many reports of these encounters, there aren’t any confirmations of what could happen if someone actually complied with the demands of the Black Eyed Kids.

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.

Masking the Dead

Not necessarily the type of accessory I’d want to wear with a Halloween or Masquerade Ball costume. However macabre this kind of mask may seem, it’s still rather fascinating to learn about.

According to Wikipedia, “A death mask is an image, typically in wax or plaster cast made of a person’s face following death, often by taking a cast or impression directly from the corpse. It is a primitive, yet most accurate, form of photography without a camera. Death masks may be momentos of the dead, or be used for creation of portraits….. The main purpose of the death mask from the Middle Ages until the 19th century was to serve as a model for sculptures in creating statues and busts of the deceased person.”

Even back during the ancient Egyptian times, masks were specifically created to put on the faces of the dead. To the living, it was considered to be very fashionable.

 

Famous death masks throughout history include:

Napoleon Bonaparte: French Military leader who died May 5, 1821 from a stomach ulcer.

 

Ludwig van Beethoven: German composer who died March 26, 1827 due to a post-hepatitic cirrhosis of the liver.

 

Aaron Burr: 3rd U. S. Vice President who served during Thomas Jefferson’s first term. Burr died September 14, 1836 from a stroke.

 

Abraham Lincoln: 16th President of the United States. Died April 15, 1865. Assassinated by American actor, John Wilkes Booth.

 

John Dillinger: American gangster who died July 22, 1934. Killed by gunfire during a shootout with federal agents.

 

Nikola Tesla: Serbian – American engineer, inventor and physicist. Died January 7, 1943 from a coronary thrombosis.

 

James Dean: American actor who died September 30, 1955 in a car accident.

 

 

 

Here are a few death masks of some pretty twisted individuals who were criminals that died by execution.

Johann Hatschwanz: Executed for murdering his wife by arsenic poisoning.

 

Johanne Rehn: Decapitated for murdering her daughter.

 

Carl Gottlob Irmscher. Decapitated for murdering his wife and child.

 

 

 

And I wouldn’t dare leave out the death mask of a very enchanting young woman who’s identity will forever remain unknown, but has intrigued so many with her peaceful beauty. The ever so elegant, L’Inconnue de la Seine, who died more than a century ago, but is now recognized as the serene face of CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation), Resusci Anne.

L’Inconnue de la Seine, who died more than a century ago, but is now recognized as the serene face of CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation), Resusci Anne. 

 

 

 

Looking at these faces, there’s a macabre sense of immortality. The eternal slumbering expressions that these death masks possess make it seem as if the individuals will wake up at any given moment. They will forever be timeless in their own curious way.
