Is there life after death?
There are people who can answer with a definitive yes. I am not one of those people.
I am not going to argue that there is a higher power
that is controlling everything, but I am a skeptic.
I need to have proof if there is something out there that is beyond this world.
This is why I jumped at the chance to go to Morse Mill Hotel for this article. The hotel is said to be haunted. It was used for
everything from a hotel and a personal home, to a post office and half way house. Some of the guests ranged from Al Capone to Charlie Chaplin, to Jesse and Frank James. It is currently under construction to transform the hotel into a bed and breakfast.
I went into the experience wanting to see some sort of proof on the existence of ghosts and paranormal. I am not here to tell you whether or not ghosts exist, but rather I will tell you what I experienced and you can make your own decision.
First thing you must know is that there is no electricity in the
hotel. The electricity that is there is for the primary source of allowing reconstruction crews to use their equipment.
There are alarms on all the doors. No one can come or go from the building without being heard or seen.
The equipment we used were K2 meters, also known as an EMF detector. These are used to determine a change in the electromagnetic fields.
We also used Mag light flashlights to allow Communication with any “spirits”.
The last object was dowsing rods. These are used by holding them very still and asking yes or no questions. The answer is determined
by whether or not they cross or uncross in the middle.I also took with me a still camera, a video
recorder, and an audio recorder. It is said that there are often heard whispers or other sounds on recording devices.
We first were taken on a tour of the building. The meters
would change from green lights when there was not any so called “contact” to orange and red when there was large amounts of “contact”. These changes were caused by a change in the magnetic field around us.The tour guide Dawn began
to knock on the walls. There would come a sound that appeared
to be knocking from the upstairs floors. This was possibly
from the settling of the building since it is over two hundred years
old. It has probably settled, long ago!
We were also instructed on how to use the Mag light Flashlight
to get a response from the so called spirits.
After we finished the tour we
were allowed to explore the house
on our own. I decided to return
to the attic. This is where there
is supposedly the spirit of a little
girl named Annabelle. Earlier in
the night I had spoken in the room
stating that my mother’s name
was Annabelle and that she was
no longer alive.
So I decided to see if I would
get any type of response in the
room when I returned. My partner
and I went up and set up the
Mag Light on the floor.
There are toys set
up in the room for the little girl, so
in some ways I guess I was talking
out loud to the toys. I stated
that we would need to be leaving
and that if there was anyone in
the room that they would need
to turn on the flashlight and we
would stay. Suddenly the flash
light turned on. There was not
anyone near the light and neither
of us was moving to were the
light might have gotten shaken
and turned on. OK, so this is really
I proceeded to tell a story in
the room and when I was finished
I stated that the light would have
to go off so that we would know
it was time to leave. The light
proceeded to turn off, again no
one was near it.
We said goodbye
to whatever or whoever was
in the room with us. And left
the building for the night, again
insuring that everything was still
locked and the alarms were still
set and there was no one else in the house besides the tour guide,
myself, and my partner.
As I stated earlier, I am a skeptic by nature. I went into this wanting proof of life after death. I know what I heard and saw that night. I am not going to say that I believe in everything that happened, but I am a little less of a skeptic now. It's not easy to dissmiss things seen by your own eyes.
So I leave it up to you, fine readers, to take a tour of this amazing piece of history and you can decide for yourself if there really is life after death.
We walking by the side yard, before leaving. When the k2 began lighting to red then back to green without the person moving so it was not the electric wires.
I was running low on rational explanations. Something beyond my understanding was happening here
