“Light Will Always Prevail”

Even when it’s cloudy the sun continues to shine.

Clouds cover the sky on a humid summer day, passing by with their random forms and patterns. And yet, beaming high above, the sun radiates its rays for all to see. Just witnessing this was so awe inspiring to me. Why? Because I saw it as a beautiful reminder that regardless of what we go through in life, light will always prevail.

Writing about and researching the paranormal, there’s always talk about the darkness and shadows. But what we have to remember is that regardless of how dim things may get, they cannot exist without the Light. There is a magnificent balance between the two. As I always say, “I love the Light as much as I love the Dark. It’s such a beautiful balance.” And I sincerely mean that.

We all go through our moments, good and bad. It’s up to us on how we perceive things. Remember, a positive mindset can do a world of wonders.

I’ve often been asked, “Sheila, how are you always so positive?” Well, the truth is… I’m not. I have my moments just like anyone else does. For example: when something happens and it absolutely irks me, I’ll be like “OMG, seriously?!?!” And trust me, I’ll say a couple of “choice words” about it, but then I have to remind myself to just let it go. Whatever it is, does not have power over me. I have power over me. I am in control of my life and whatever happens, whether it’s good or bad, is because it is meant to happen. I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. We are never given more than what we can handle. But again, it is based on our perception on how we see things. Do we accept things as a lesson that will help us to grow and become stronger, better individuals or will we let things drag us down and consume us? We can either accept things constructively or destructively, the choice is ours. If we choose constructively, then we can embrace the experience as a lesson that will teach us to be wiser with a more positive outlook. However, if we choose destructively, we do so with a negative mindset, therefore becoming cold and bitter towards the situation. Subsequently, allowing the latter to control us. I repeat, the choice is ours. Constructively or destructively. Positive or negative. A positive life brings forth strength and happiness while a negative life results in weakness and misery.

When I was younger, I was actually more negative than positive. I would often look at things with a scowled look on my face, angry and wrapped up in my own little world. I would let things control me and still question, “why?”. And then one day I woke up. A co-worker once told me that no matter how some people may try to bring us down, we should always smile at them. I questioned her reasoning and she replied, “Because if you let them get the best of you, then they win. And if you do that, you let that person have power over you. But, by smiling at them, regardless of how hard they try to be rude, you let that individual know that they can’t control you.”

It may sound like simple advice, but I have carried that with me for twenty years and the older I get, the more it makes sense. I guess with age comes wisdom? Whatever it is, it continues to resonate with me and I find myself sharing my former co-worker’s advice quite often. (If you’re wondering what I used to do, I worked for a law firm serving subpoenas for a living and would often get a lot of attitude from people when I served them. Even though it wasn’t my fault why they were being subpoenaed to court, I was the middle person and the one who they hated. I must admit, the job did help me develop a tough skin, though.)

Keep in mind when you encounter someone who’s having a bad day, remember this….. don’t take it personally. And if you can, help them have a better day. Even if you just give them a smile. You may not think they deserve it, but I promise you, the simple gesture of a smile can brighten someone’s day more than you know. It can literally speak volumes. Pay it forward! Also by doing so, you continue to help yourself grow by incorporating a positive life into your daily routine. Your positive light can be the seed that manifests brightness into the world. How amazing is that, right?! You are a beautiful beacon of radiance! You glow and so does your magical smile! 🙂

Keep shining, my most awesome friends!

~ Love & Light, Sheila

“I’m Blocking You!”

Nah… not really. Don’t worry, I would never do that to any of you because you all rock and I love you guys!! But… the reason for my crazy, abrupt title is…. Being an empath is not always an easy thing to be. And for those of us who have this ability, we must learn how to control the sudden changes that we encounter emotionally, mentally and physically. Many of us consider this ability as a curse, like I used to do. But as the years went on and I learned how to live with my ability, I now consider it as a gift. Being an empath is a blessing to me. It’s taught me how to be more understanding and compassionate to others. I’ve also learned how, through meditation and the protection of white light and my spirit guides, to block negative energy. I use a technique that I call “bubbling”. And what that means is that when I am around any sort of negativity, for example: be it a negative person or at a haunted location (while researching or investigating), I will envision a bright “bubble” of white light encircling me, and other individuals around me if they ask me to aid them as well. As I’m doing so, that’s when I call upon my spirit guides for assistance. Suddenly, I can feel their warm presence and all of their positive energy around me, immediately negating anything negative and draining. This is how I block anything that doesn’t feel right to me.

Being an empath is something very dear to me. However, I didn’t always feel this way. Why? Because growing up with this ability, not knowing what it was, was really scary at times. When I was younger I didn’t know what being an empath even was. All I knew was that I could feel what others were feeling. And not just because they verbalized what they felt (what I felt from them wasn’t due to the power of suggestion either). But I could honestly “feel” what other people were going through… sense they’re happiness… fear… anger… etc, etc….

It wasn’t until my adult years that I discovered my ability as an empath. Like I said, when I was a kid I knew I was different, just didn’t realize exactly what it was. I always felt a little out of place even though I had my friends, I still felt different.

Since then, I’ve met many other empaths. How we interpret our abilities depends upon our own perceptions. For me, the vibrational waves of energy that I pick up from others, including from the beautiful Earth, aren’t only what I can detect emotionally, but as I get older, this ability to hone in on these energies is something I can physically feel as well. For instance, happy energies cause me to feel somewhat like an adrenaline rush. Their vibrations are energetic and cheerful. Negative energies make me feel awkward and jittery. Their vibrations cause me to feel a great deal of discomfort. And when someone is in any kind of pain, the vibrational energy surrounding them makes me feel nauseous deep in the pit of my stomach.

Now that I’m older, I can easily discern others’ energies from my own. It wasn’t so easily when I was younger, but by learning how to embrace my ability, I have learned how to guard myself and protect my own energies. I am extremely spiritual in my beliefs and have faith in the assistance from my spirit guides and white light protection.

Below is an image of a plasma globe. For me, to describe how being an empath is, is as simple as this. The more connections that are made with the plasma globe, the more energy beams that are produced. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and that’s okay because I know how to recharge myself when needed. Which is very important for everyone to do. I love going on nature walks, breathing in the fresh air and feeling the sun’s rays beam down upon my skin. It’s absolutely magical!

If you’re an empath, let’s hear from you, too! How do you cope and recharge? And do you consider your ability as a gift or a curse? We want to know….. 🙂

“Spooky Random Fact: #11”

“Spooky Random Fact: #11”

Fear cemeteries? Wait, no way… not me!!

Hmmm…. The fascination of cemeteries, graves, headstones, gargoyles…. etc. etc…. To many, they are quite attracted to such places. Why? Well, to me (and yes, I am one of those who find these macabre locations to be rather intriguing.) there’s something serene about the atmosphere. I am at such peace when I am at a cemetery. Which, if one truly thinks about it, should be comforting to know that the dead are “resting in peace”. After all, I am an empath and can feel the deceased’s energy. 😉

Did you know that there is actually a name for this curious allure? It’s referred to as coimetromania. According to an online definition, it’s simply defined as “An abnormal attraction to and desire to visit cemeteries.” There are many, many people with this interest. And I’m sure that with each individual, their reasoning is just as unique as they are……

Interview with Bobbi Riesling

Today I’m welcoming Bobbi Riesling. She’s a resident of a home with a very haunted history. Thank you, Bobbi for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I was born in California and lived there as a child and eventually moved to the Middle East. My father worked for the government and the military, so in 1977 we moved to   Tehran, Iran. We were there until the end and we were on the last flight out. Then, we went back to California and later moved to Saudi Arabia in 1982. Stayed there for 5 years and eventually went back to California. Needless to say, I’ve been around the world 4 times and I have experienced many cultures which probably led to me being the way I am.

 

 

Why the paranormal?

As for the paranormal it’s always been a part of my life in one way or another. I remember at the age of 7 I had a friend tree. In my mind, she was a female and I used to talk to her everyday and bring her gifts. To me it was totally normal. I guess even then I knew things were much deeper than what we perceive, not to mention my entire family going back generations have always dealt with the paranormal, we all have gifts.  Every single house that I have lived in has had activity, so it’s just a part of our life.

 

 

You live in a haunted house. Care to share some of your paranormal experiences?

As for my experiences, things did not become really strong until my parents bought the house in Georgia, moving from Maryland. A couple of weeks before they moved, they were here in Maryland and kept getting phone calls from a security system telling them there was movement inside the new home. This would be the beginning. After they moved in, the activity increased. It started out as sounds like moving furniture, then became smells and a fluctuation in temperature which then became stronger and became physical after my brother passed in that very home, and yes the paranormal sped up his death. I spent a lot of time there, traveling from Maryland and staying at the house with my parents. It seems when my mother and I are together in the home, the activity is off the charts. We both have been physically attacked, my mother more than I. My one experience was a violation. My mother seems to be the main target of this particular evil spirit and she has been thrown down the stairs, scratched, bit, hit, and that continues to this day. My father has been attacked as well. He had an accident in the garage which severed his wrist artery and I was there, and luckily got him to the hospital in time. There are several portals in the home as well. Even the animals have been affected and we did lose one dog. We have seen many shadow people, a lot of orbs, weird visual disturbances. I have taken hundreds of pictures and a lot of video to back that up.

 

 

What’s the history behind the house’s paranormal activity?

As for the history of the place, we did learn many years ago that the home was on the property of the Bel-Air Plantation which was the biggest plantation in the area and it was owned by a very evil man who had around 400 slaves. The man’s name was William Crawford and that home later burnt down, but everyone survived.

 

 

Have you sought out any kind of assistance with the cleansing of the entities? And if so, what were the results?

We have gotten help. We have had 3 teams separate come and investigate and clean, which led to being on The Dead Files TV show, season 10: episode six titled, Return of the Dammed. The last time we had one out after being on the show came and helped, but it didn’t work. Unfortunately, we have different opinions and they think they did a good job in only 2. Unfortunately, ego got in the way. I can honestly say we were taken advantage of, it cost us $650 with absolutely no follow up, no checking on us, nothing.   At this point, all ghost hunting teams have left a bad taste in my mouth.

 

 

How has the paranormal affected you and your family living in the house?

This has deeply affected my family and still does to this day. We keep experiencing negative energies and yes, it has caused a rift in the family, and we are all very affected. Imagine seeing or hearing things and not knowing if it’s good or bad?

 

 

What would you say to a skeptic who may be in question in regards to the ghostly realm?

My words to any skeptic, “the door is open, come and stay-a-while!!”

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

My words of wisdom are, the world is not black-and-white and there is definitely more to it than meets the eye. This whole experience has opened my 3rd eye and I continue to work on my abilities. And I now want to help others. There are definitely spirits, they are just us only transitioned. Since my brother has passed, I have gotten very close with him because he is always here and gives us signs every day. It is truly amazing that there is a beautiful white light-of-love in the center of all this darkness. Never under estimate your loved ones. This story crosses from Georgia to Maryland. The activity is also with us. We attract the other side, so we are dealing not only with what is on the ground, but also with us.

 

 

 

 

Interview with Eddie Hill, host of Paranormal Analytical

Today I’m welcoming Eddie Hill, host of Paranormal Analytical. Thank you, Eddie for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Well, let’s see where I can start. I am a Retired Police Sergeant with 26 years on the street. I retired in 2014 in order to pursue the Paranormal. I also spent 8 years in the United States Navy Reserves as a Master at Arms (Military Police).
I’ve been involved in the paranormal for as long as I can remember. I’ve had dealings with black shadows, apparitions, UFO Sightings, and possibly a Bigfoot sighting, however, I can’t say for sure on the Bigfoot. I only caught a glimpse of something bipedal, tall, and possibly covered in fur, but due to the distance, it’s really hard to say.
Since I’ve had so many encounters, more than I could possibly write about, I decided to put together a team of professional investigators in order to try and find some answers. We like to think outside the box and try to look for new and different ways to prove or disprove what we are investigating. We are hoping at some point, we will be able to come up with some proven and scientific methods which will assist us, no matter what we are searching for.

 

 

What got you into the paranormal? Was it an experience, curiosity…. or?

From a very young age I began to have experiences with apparitions, dark shadows, UFO cases. I have a feeling that some of my Grandmother’s abilities rubbed off on me. She was a Curandera, who, from what I understand, was very powerful.
(A curandero (Spanish: [ku?an’de?o], f. curandera) or curandeiro (Portuguese: [ku??~’dej?u], f. curandeira) is a traditional Native healer, shaman or Witch doctor found in Latin America, the United States and Southern Europe. The curandero dedicates their life to the administration of remedies for mental, emotional, physical and spiritual illnesses based on their evaluation.[1][2][3][4] The role of a curandero or curandera can also incorporate the roles of psychiatrist along with that of doctor and healer. Some curanderos, such as Don Pedrito, the Healer of Los Olmos, make use of simple herbs, waters, and even mud to effect their cures. Others additionally employ Catholic elements, such as holy water and saint pictures. The use of Roman Catholic prayers and other borrowings and lendings are often found alongside native religious elements. Many curanderos emphasize their native spirituality in healing while being practicing Roman Catholics.
They are often respected members of the community. Literally translated as “healer” from Spanish. Their powers are considered supernatural, as it is commonly believed that many illnesses are caused by lost malevolent spirits, a lesson from God, or curse.)

With that being said, my abilities have always been strong and from what I have been told many times throughout my life, I carry the spirit of the Wolf. I don’t know how true that might be, however, I, along with five others, saw a spirit wolf one night and I was able to touch it. It truly was an amazing experience. We all saw it vanish right before our eyes. I don’t think I would have believed what I saw and felt, if I didn’t have witnesses to this encounter. It was something I won’t ever forget.

 

 

Tell us about your show Paranormal Analytical.

Paranormal Analytical is a show which was created by Altered Vision Studios. Miguel Cantu, our director, producer, and owner of Altered Vision Studios, wanted to harness our talents and abilities to create a true life and true adventure series/documentary that had no scripted lines, no overacting, and just true to life encounters. As you can imagine, when you are strictly working with the actual truth, it’s much harder to gather evidence than what you see on television. But once you are on a quest for the truth, the real evidence is what matters.

 

 

What’s the most bizarre otherworldly experience you’ve ever encountered?

There are so many, that it’s truly hard to place your finger on just one. Each have their very own energy and each of them are special in their very own way. But I would have to say, dealing with a Demonic case where a dark shadow person was going after a 13 year old girl. We are aware that most Poltergeist activity revolves around young girls just reaching puberty, however, the menacing occurrences to this little girl was pushing her over the edge. We had team members scratched, my name being called out on EVPs, so clear, it seemed as though it was HD quality and not just a class “A” EVP. The young girl who was staying with her grandmother finally told us not to come over anymore. That her grandmother was the one who kept calling this thing back by using a Ouija Board. Being that I was still in the Police Department, I was able to get her back with her mother and father. We did three separate house cleanings on that home, all of which seemed to work for a while. We were wondering why it kept returning. Once the young girl told us that he grandmother was involved, the question was answered.

 

 

You’re also on the new show, The Deadly Dogmen, Hunting For Lycanthropes. Share with everyone all the exciting details, what was the inspiration behind creating the show, what viewers can expect to see and where can people tune in?

The Deadly Dogmen series is based upon Leslie S. Mitts and Robert D. Miles’ best selling book, Lycandroids, Super Soldiers, and the Freedom War. Timestream Pictures and Altered Vision Studios teamed up to work on a series/documentary, based on this elusive creature that has been reported thousands of times around the world. Although this is a Cryptid Animal, some believe that much more is going on behind the scenes to keep this creature hidden from public view, more so than the Popular Bigfoot. There are thousands of people who turn up missing in state and federal parks. Some are found dismembered, eaten, or not at all. But this Lycan type creature is believed to be responsible for some of the disappearances. We know there could be many more possibilities, however, if there is a chance that a creature like this exists, we feel the public should be aware and take precautions when they could possibly be in an area inhabited by a creature of this size…an Apex Predator if you will. We have been working hard to gather witnesses who are willing to come forward and tell their story. Locations the creature was seen, and any evidence which someone may have gathered. We have the ability to have samples checked without interference from outside agencies. We hope that the show will spark an interest and allow us the funding to continue our research.

 

 

What’s next for Eddie Hill?

Well, I do what I do! The search will always continue for as long as I am able. Anything Paranormal happens, I am going to be there. I have a great team, Miguel Cantu, Rene Rodriguez, and Patrick Newcomb.
We will continue working on our series/documentary shows, as well as writing and working on Scripts for feature films. We have one that is called Anunnaki that will have a teaser out soon. So keep a watch for that one.

 

 

Where can paranormal enthusiasts and other like-minded individuals follow you and your work?

We can be found on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. We have a show every Thursday night on Facebook Live, which also gets aired on http://www.LNMRadioNetwork.com
You can find us live on Facebook Thursday Night from: 7:00pm – 9:00pm Central Time. We have some of the amazing guests on the show. Please keep an open mind and always be respectful to our guests. They are sharing what they know and their opinions on certain topics. It’s not a show for debate, but to learn and take with us what we can, if it will help us along our very own journey.

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

The best wisdom I can share, is keep an open mind. Not everything is black and white. Respect each other and work together to solve problems. We are all a part of this strange and fascinating world. It’s up to us to find the answers. And we will…a lot sooner if we are all on the same page and working together. Keep it real, be safe, and expose the liars. We must do this for each other.

 

 

 

 

“Unleash YOUR Potential!”

You and only you have the power to achieve your goals. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t. They have absolutely no control over you. Some may try, but it’s up to you to stand up for yourself and show the world what you can do. You have the ability to create your heart’s desires, so make it happen!

Let today be the start of a beautiful new chapter in your life. Whatever happened yesterday, that’s in the past. Let the adversities that challenge you be lessons, something worthwhile of gaining personal strength! We must allow our experiences to teach us, not condemn us.

From dreams reality is born and we have to believe in ourselves in order to achieve greatness! Be fearless and rock on with those positive vibes! Remember, you are beyond amazing, so own your awesomeness!! YOU ARE BRILLIANT!!!

Say it loud, say it proud!! DREAM. BELIEVE. ACHIEVE!

 

 

~ Much Love & Light, Sheila ❤

Interview with Dave Spinks & Kristin Lee

Today I’m welcoming Dave Spinks and Kristin Lee who are here to tell us about their exciting upcoming convention, Society of Supernatural! Thank you, Dave and Kristin for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Dave:  I’m a military veteran of 9 years and retired federal law enforcement officer. I’ve been investigating and researching all aspects of the paranormal for over 30 years. I have recently delved into writing. I have a lot of experiences and knowledge over these many years of investigating strange phenomena and I feel it’s time to put it to paper.

Kristin:  My name is Kristin Lee. I’m the founder and owner of the Bellaire House Paranormal Research Center, coined Bellaire House Tours, LLC. I work in the metaphysical field and also work with a large supernatural community whom collect paranormal data at the Bellaire House.

 

 

Why the paranormal?

Dave:  Well the paranormal really changed my life due to several experiences I had as a young man, starting with a Bigfoot sighting I had in 1983 with my grandfather.

Kristin:  I fell on hard times when my home was destroyed by two flash floods, leaving me homeless with two kids. I found the Bellaire House on a foreclosed list, I put in a bid to purchase the home, the bank accepted it and we moved in shortly after. It wasn’t long before I started noticing paranormal activity; but I blamed psychology from the flood, being over worked and the stress of rebuilding a life for my family until there was no more psychological explanations. I’m interested in afterlife communication, and collecting paranormal data to prove or disprove there is something more than what a conservative middle class society taught me. There are things that I’m unable to explain, unexplainable things not only I, but many who gather with me, can’t explain either. There are so many profound things that add up if you pay attention – it’s like I’m being spiritually led. I think the most important thing I’ve learned from this metaphysical/paranormal research is that there are no coincidences.

 

 

You’re a paranormal investigator. What kind of locations do you investigate and what’s been the scariest one so far?

Dave:  Yes, well I investigate residential locations as well as commercial locations. However, I investigate hauntings, cryptids and ufo sightings anything in the supernatural realm is game for me because I feel a lot of it, maybe interconnected. I really don’t have a scariest location, each one is different and many have been unnerving in their own way.

 

 

 

You’re an author, metaphysician and owner of the Bellaire House, a location known for its paranormal activity. Tell us a little about its haunted history. 

Kristin: The land is part of the French and Indian war, there are Shawnee caves on the property for the mid 1700’s; we have heard others locals say their elders told them that the Shawnee held ceremonies behind the Bellaire House. Bellaire is known for “the house that jack built.” Which was built and owned by a hard working coal mine tycoon named Jacob Heatheringon, we have proven the Bellaire House to part of Jacob Heatheringtons land, as well as the Bellaire House was part of Jacobs family – his son Alex and granddaughter Lyde took over the coal company when Jacob died. We have recently learned Alex was committed to a lunatic asylum when the business failed, leaving Lyde,  who died in the house from heart problems owner of the land. Her brother Edwin lived inside the Bellaire House with Lyde, but when Lyde died, Edwin became struck with grief and called upon spiritualist’s to come to the Bellaire House so he could communicate with Lyde. We also learned that Edwin lost a twin sister at a tender young age of his human development, which may have triggered him to  question the afterlife when he was a child. We have heard rumors that the water was poisoned by a local man because his wife wanted to live in the Bellaire House but the family would not sell it. Jim Chase who is a former code enforcer, found maps that show catacombs, leaving a passage for freedom for the Underground Railroad to the Ohio River. There is documentation of a coal mine fire in portal 1, which Jacob Heatherington spent $8k to extinguish in the 1800’s. We have identified Jacob as being a leader of the Good Fellows, and holding private meeting in the lower chamber of his home. In front of the House is the Ohio River which coincides with leyline that create portals or doorways to the paranormal. We have recently discovered very strong correlations to the Heatheringtons physical & psychological well being. Historically the house has had many owners as well as those who lived there as renters. The Bellaire House houses positive energy aside from some of the TV rating dramatic’s, but then the other side of the Bellaire House is not positive & it can be dangerous, some people call this demonic- so the Bellaire House crew works hard to keep the energy neutralized to try to be proactive against negative energy. We have had many teams come to investigate the Bellaire House for definitive paranormal activity, and most have gathered some very profound & unexplainable video data, concluding paranormal activity does exist. It has taken us thirteen years to gather data to be able to say that paranormal activity exists. Our next research is trying to learn how the activity manifests.

 

 

 

Together you both are working on an exciting upcoming event, Society of Supernatural.

Dave, can you tell everyone when the event will take place and how people can get tickets? And also, what’s the itinerary for the day of the event?

Dave:  Yes, the first Society of the Supernatural Convention will be taking place on June 16th from 11 am to 6pm, at the wheeling island casino and resort in wheeling WV. There will be guest speakers , To include John Zaffis , Rosemary Ellen Guiley , our own David Weatherly, Myself , Kristin Lee, Ross Allison, Sean Austin. Also appearing Stan Gordon, Eric Altman. There will be many meta physical people, psychics doing readings haunted location owners and people who run the locations to include Willows Weep, Bellaire House Octagon Hall, Kusciosko County Jail, Guyer Opera house and more. Several paranormal radio shows, paranormal groups of all kinds. Also, after the event is over Sean Austin Will be performing live music at the venue . You can get tickets to the event by going to the Bellaire house facebook page , go into the events page and find the conference page. You can also buy tickets at the door.

Kristin, the day before the event there will be a “Meet & Greet”. Can you tell everyone about that? And where will the “Meet & Greet” take place?

Kristin:  Dave called me one afternoon and asked me to help him coordinate a supernatural gathering in Wheeling, WV. We say supernatural because we wanted to not limit ourselves just to paranormal. We believe that all unexplained should be considered “supernatural” because we work with so many people in the field who are not just paranormal investigators. We also wanted to open the conference up various people who work as metaphysicians, psychic’s, cryptozoology, ufology, hauntings, paranormal, demonology, authors, location owners, teams of researchers, and healers. We also wanted to gather together with like minded people to share our work & start building a strong network of rapport with our peers. In the past I coordinated psychic fairs at the Wheeling Island Casino, Wheeling, WV, so I suggested to Dave we start the conference there. David Weatherly & Spinks asked me to join the Society of the Supernatural, (SOS) because of my work and experiences from the Bellaire House & we have other members of the SOS spread across the world.
Friday night is a private meet & greet at the Bellaire House with the speakers of the convention, plus we will also be holding a small & intimate Investigation at the Bellaire House with the speakers of the conventions. We opened up a six VIP tickets for guests to join us. Info for VIP tickets is in the website. thebellairehouse.webs.com. Meet & greet is 6pm-8pm and then the Investigation is 8pm-12am – we have an early morning and a very long day on Saturday.

 

 

 

This is the first one of many to come. What’s the inspiration behind creating the event, Society of Supernatural?

Dave:  The inspiration for the event is to bring together like minded people in the field to network with one another, share stories and experiences swap information . It is also focusing on people who live this life for real, people who have a genuine passion for the research and in the search for answers to some of man’s greatest questions.

Anything else you’d like to include about the fun-filled event?

Dave:  If you love the Supernatural realm you won’t want to miss this one! We’d love to meet each and every one of you and hear your stories and experiences. See you there!

Kristin:  We have 15 vending tables available at $50 per table. We provide an 8 foot table and chairs. There is an application that needs to be submitted for vendors simply to keep the type of vendors even- we want to keep things fair as possible & not have a overflow of specific vendors. We have capes 2-3 vendors per category to keep the event balanced. VIP meet & Greet tickets are going fast. Lodging for the event is at the Wheeling Island Casino Hotel. Saturday after the convention we will remain in the show room for a public after hours party where Sean Austin will be playing music.

Kristin: It is said by many locals of Bellaire that Jacob had this monument of Eliza placed at Greenwood cemetery with her back turned against Bellaire because of how the locals disrespected her. Jacob built the mansion for Eliza so she would feel acceptance by the village of Bellaire, but when he held parties the locals still shunned her. Eliza was a faithful Christian Women who taught Jacob to read by using the Bible. However, she followed in her mother’s footsteps and worked as a bar maid and cook. Back then, people frowned on women working in a pub. Non true rumors state Eliza is holding a spell book, but she is holding the Bible as she stood firm of the gospel of Christ.

Kristin: In March of 2017 after we aired on TV, we received so much attention someone decided to buy the bankruptcy note to the Bellaire House and hung $50k over our heads to keep it. After months of fighting with the persons who bought the bankruptcy note, we were able to get them to lower the debt to $35k and that was when we brought in Jon Campbell as our business partner. We raised money for the cause of saving the Bellaire House, and the debt pushed back the restoration of the Bellaire House, but we saved it thanks to Jon Campbell.

As far as we knew I had filed the bankruptcy, walked away to start a new life. Jim Chase, the code enforcer at the time called me and told me I was responsible for the property, the upkeep and I owned it and my name was on the deed still. Once we aired, a mortgage company contacted me demanding payment for the bank note and when they called that was when we found out the bank never foreclosed the properly. Years had gone by and I had been keeping up on the property, taxes and everything that goes along with it until I received the call demanding payment- that’s where John Campbell asked to become a partner to help save the house.

Kristin: Many local people have called Kristin a fraud and liar about the Bellaire House, some locals don’t believe in the paranormal and have gone beyond disrespecting Kristin Lee as they once did to Eliza Heatherington. It’s a shame that if anyone dares to be different in Bellaire the uneducated pitchforks point to the sky by the hands of some very cruel people. This is proof that the Bellaire House is a historical location, and Jacob A Heatherington was a resident. The family is large so historical data is a on going process by Rebecca Star Garden.

Kristin: The fire 1893. Coal mine portal #1 is currently visible, which proves the fire under the Bellaire House, and the coal mine portal runs from Pinch Run to St.Johns Catholic school.

Kristin: Alex Heatheringtons commitment records found by Rebecca Star Gardner.
