Spirit was asked by Dan T. Hall to hosting the after party Ghost Hunt at the Irving Theater following the opening of Ghost Stories 4. We demonstrated to the guest how to use our paranormal investigative equipment. We had nearly 100 people show up and try out ghost hunting for themselves. The attached video is one of the many unexplained events that the guest reported. We had reports of playful hair and shirt tugs by one of the many spirits that frequent the Irving.
In a new twist to an old haunting report we have three separate reports from the ladies room in the Irving. Each report has the ladies in the stall hearing someone enter the restroom and the door closing. One of the reports states they even heard footsteps walk up to the stall door. In each case when the ladies exited the stall no one was in the restroom. This may be connected to the Lazy Days ghost that has been reported by many patrons.
In a new report from the Lazy Days two patrons were waiting to enter the restroom knocked on the door and got a response from inside "Just a minute" after waiting several more minutes they knocked again with no response. After opening the door no one was found inside.
S*P*I*R*I*T takes a multi-faceted approach to investigating a reported haunting. We do this by using both scientific methods and equipment to record activity and also intuitives to receive impressions to better understand the cause of the haunting. This way we can solve the cause of the haunting and help the spirits or energies move on. We guide the family giving them information and strategies to protect themselves, put their minds at ease and to clear the home of negative energies. The goal is to resolve the activity and put the family in charge of their home again. Most paranormal activity is not malevolent. It is merely misunderstood energy and/or entities. We are all intuitive to some degree and can learn to focus on the positive aspects of life rather than attracting negative energy by focusing on what we don't want. Focus on what you do want. Thoughts are things. Use your thoughts for good.

This is the story, photos, audio and a short video from a private home investigation 10/9/2010. The first contact The homeowner reported several types of activity including a small shadow spirit, lots of orbs, semi-transparent objects including a spirit that imitated objects in the home. They also experienced several sounds including that of a wheel barrel rolling around in the attic, heavy footsteps, and children talking. The first night they moved in there was a male disembodied voice clearly herd in the master bedroom. The home was only six years old so having this extensive of a haunting was puzzling to us. Not so puzzling was that three families had occupied the home in its short six-year history. The first family stayed less than a year and moved out leaving the house empty for several months. The second family stayed only eight months before allowing the house to go back to the lender. While we cannot say for sure why these families moved, it was apparent to us that the haunting may have been at least a contributing factor. The current owners moved in after the house sat empty for nearly two years. They started experiencing activity on the first night after moving in. The owner had contacted a person on the Internet to try to help clear the property. This person charged the owner $200 to clear the house remotely. The owner said the activity got worse instead of better. As with any kind of services check out the person or team that you have trying to clear your home of these types of energies, especially if they are charging upfront. While clearing a property remotely is possible there are lots of people out there only looking to scam you out of your money. We never charge for our services and do not take donations of any kind. The investigation. During the investigation we contacted several spirits including three members of a single family that had passed in a home fire in 1863. We also contacted the spirit of the male homeowner’s grandfather and the spirit of the female homeowner’s uncle. We find this to be a very common event while investigating private homes. It seems that a lot of us have spirits that have a vested interest in our well being such as ancestors acting as guides. We also experienced several other lower energies that required clearing. We also collected the video, audio and pictures below Marilene Isaacs As part of our investigation we requested that Marilene Isaacs come by to give a cold reading of the house and property. She was not told of any of the events before the walkthrough. Marilene entered the house and went directly to the center of the activity. She told the owner that there was an energy vortex centered in the master bedroom that was amplifying the events they were experiencing. She also confirmed much of the information we had received during our investigation. She also warned the homeowner of an area of the building that may need maintenance to prevent water from getting in and causing mold. We checked this area and found some damaged siding. The clearing. We concluded the investigation by crossing over the spirits we had interviewed and performing a house clearing. As part of the clearing we placed a barrier around the property to help prevent other spirits from being drawn to the energy vortex. Researching the information from the investigation and Marilene’s reading. We researched the area using information we received during the investigation. We found that the home sits on the same location as a large homestead deeded to the original owners as payment for serving in the revolutionary war. The property then passed down two generations to John and Betty. They had two sons John and James and one daughter Amy. The property set along Indiana's first "super highway" the Michigan Road, which was built in the 1830s and 1840s and ran from Madison, Indiana to Michigan City, Indiana via Indianapolis. We believe the property was used as a way station during much of this time. John and his family provided travelers with food and supplies for their trip west. During the investigation we received information that in 1863 John, Betty and Amy died in a house fire. We found John’s grave and death records dated in 1863 and he is buried in a local cemetery. After the fire the two sons continued to farm the land for several years. They sold the property and moved west some time later. We searched the cemetery and records but could not find the location of Betty or Amy gravesites. There are grave markers next to John but we could not read the information on the headstones due to wear and the records of who is buried there has been lost. After the investigation and house clearing the new owners have reported no activity. We have provided the owners with the skills to clear their own home. We did this after finding that the property also sits along a lay line and has an energy vortex in the master bedroom. We suspect that this may be the reason for the intensity and number of spirits haunting this otherwise average home. Both the father and daughter are very intuitive and may also be attracting spirits. We will continue to work with the owners to keep the home clear as needed.
