Ghost Hunters and Psychic Kids return to A&E for a Back to Back Debut

On Wednesday August 21st both Ghost Hunters and Psychic Kids return to A&E channel for back to back debut episodes starting at 9PM ET/PT.

From having the opportunity to preview both new episodes I can tell you its straight back to business for both shows.

Fifteen years ago the world was introduced to Ghost Hunters with Grant Wilson, Jason Hawes and the TAPS team investigating lots of haunted locations over 11 seasons.

Seven years ago Grant Wilson decided to quit Ghost Hunters to spend more time with his family but now in 2019 Grant is back with a whole new team of hand picked professional ghost hunters as they use their decades of experience to investigate hauntings across America.

Grants new team members are Daryl Marston co-lead investigator, Kirtsen Luman co-lead investigator, Mustafa Gatollari Historian and site analyst, Richel Stratton paranormal investigator, Brian Murray paranormal investigator and Brandon Alvis paranormal technician.

The season premiers with “School Spirit”.  Grant is contacted by the principal of Pocatello High School in Idaho after security cameras capture unexplained electrical light disturbances and a ghostly apparition in the hallway.

The school has long been rumoured to be haunted, but most rumours are thought to be just urban legends, but are they?

Psychic Kids first debuted in 2008 and became a hit series for A&E. It brought together children who had psychic abilities and helped them to harness and cope with their abilities to try and stop them from being afraid.

Now with the new series, the kids from 10 years ago are now in their 20’s and ready to assist the next generation of children with psychic abilities.

In the first episode we are introduced to Kendyll and Ethan. Two children who are scared and having a hard time controlling their abilities and turn to mentors to help them cope.

The mentors Peri Zarella and Ryan Michaels, two psychics who featured in the original series when they were children, try to help and guide Kendyll and Ethen with their abilities via different scenarios.

Unexplained Case Of Stone-Throwing Devil of New Castle Island

In 1682, stones battered George and Alice Walton’s home and crashed through windows in the living quarters above their tavern.

Hails of stones followed them into their fields. Richard Chamberlain, Secretary of the British Colony of New Hampshire, who was staying with the couple documented the events and coined the word, Lithobolia,a Greek-sounding one that translates as Stone-Throwing Devil.

He published a book about the seventeenth century poltergeist.

Stone-Throwing Devil Activity – Summer 1682

George was the stones’ target. There were up to one hundred of them in sessions and George was hit as many as forty times. Some were very hot, while some were icy cold.

Their size ranged from small pebbles to rocks as large as a human head. When people put them on a table, they disappeared and reappeared. The Waltons tried to repel the Stone-Throwing Devil by boiling crooked pins in a pot of urine. Twice, a stone hit the pot, spilling the liquid.

A gate from the Waltons’ house to neighbor Amazeen’s was tossed off if its hinges. A spit from the fireplace disappeared, then fell down the chimney and impaled itself into a log. A wheel of cheese was broken into pieces.

The drainage stopper in George’s boat vanished. Household items were tossed into the yard. Witnesses heard rocks rolling in the upstairs room, snorting, heavy breathing and sounds of distant hoofbeats.

Stone-Throwing Devil and Accusations of Witchcraft

The Waltons were considered wealthy property owners. Goody, a term used for women who didn’t have the status of being called missus, Hannah Jones was poor.

They both claimed ownership to a small field. Walton accused her of being a witch when she told him he should never enjoy that piece of land. She countered by accusing him of sorcery.

Some believed this event summoned the Stone-Throwing Devil.

Political Climate in New Castle Island

The islanders, two days before the stone throwing started, petitioned to separate from Portsmouth. It was denied. The heirs of John Mason, who was granted all of the land in New Hampshire, wanted their land returned or to collect taxes from all residents.

Chamberlain, the Waltons’ guest, was also the lawyer for the Masons. The Waltons were Masonian sympathizers and Quakers. Members of the sect were persecuted as those suspected of practicing witchcraft were.

Waltons’ household included servants an African man and an AmerIndian woman, in an era of great racial prejudice.

Stone-Throwing Devil’s Activity Ends

The poltergeist activity ended after Chamberlain returned to England. Two and a half years later, George Walton, who was seventy at the time, signed his property over to Alice and provided legacies to his children and grandchildren.

When he died in the following year, George still suffered from the wounds caused by the stones.

What was the Stone-Throwing Devil?

There were those who believed the stone tossing was caused by the devil. Increase and Cotton Mather, two powerful colonial New Englanders, wrote about the events that many believed were caused by witchcraft.

Cotton played a prominent role in the future Salem Massachusetts witch hysteria involving persecutions, accusations, trials and executions. No record can be found that indicates executions of anyone connected with the Stone-Throwing Devil.

Some islanders believed mischievous humans they dubbed the Boys at Work were the culprits. The Waltons had a houseful of grandchildren. The boys heard the snorting sounds; the girls, awakened by sounds of rolling rocks.

Both ran outside during the hails of stones. The problem with this theory is that stones pelted George in the children’s absence.

There is a phenomenon called the rock-throwing poltergeist that has been investigated and documented in modern times. Their activity is limited to stone tossing.

This is a manifestation of PK, psychokinesis, the ability of the mind to affect matter. The agent can be a human or an entity. There is a profile for human agents.

They experience unpleasant emotions such as frustration, anger and feelings of worthlessness, and test above average for PK. Emotions are repressed and released by subconscious PK. The activity may stop spontaneously or by psychotherapy.

By today’s standards, this case would be considered as trickery or a poltergeist, not the work of the devil.

A chilling video shows La Llorona in a town in Colombia

La Llorona is a legendary figure with several incarnations. Generally known as ‘the woman who cries’, it is represented as a type of soul in sorrow: an appearance of a woman dressed in white, which appears in lakes or rivers, sometimes at road crossings, who cries at night for her lost children whom she killed. Her crime was committed in an attack of madness after learning that her lover or unfaithful husband left her to be with another woman of superior status. After realizing what he had done, he committed suicide.

It is described as a lost soul, condemned to wander the earth forever. For some, it is simply a fictional figure used by parents to scare children who misbehave. This popular history has been represented in several forms: in cinema, animation, art, poetry, theater, and literature aimed at both adults and children. The legend is deeply rooted in Mexican culture, but little by little it has been spreading throughout South America and certain parts of the United States. But the question we ask ourselves is: Is there evidence of its existence? Well, the answer to this question may be found in a video that has recently gone viral

‘La Llorona’ in Colombia

A video recently published on social networks shows what appears to be the silhouette of a “woman crying” on a tree in Colombia, which for many is the evidence that ‘La Llorona’ is much more than a legend. According to the South American media, the incident occurred in the Colombian municipality of Moñitos last month and became a viral phenomenon on social networks shortly after Christmas.

Although they have not offered many more details, all that is known is that the inhabitants of the small municipality are afraid to leave their homes due to the ghostly sighting. Specifically, it has been suggested that the entity in the video is clearly the terrifying figure of Latin American folklore known as ‘La Llorona’.

As we have commented previously, the legend says that this wandering spirit is that of a woman who was rejected by her husband and, in response, drowned her children and then committed suicide. He refused to “go to the other side” and now La Llorona roams the Earth in spirit form, killing anyone who has the bad luck of meeting her.

Like many similar videos that go viral, the opinions of Internet users about sighting in Colombia are divided. While some have found the scene quite scary, the most skeptical criticized the video by ensuring that it is a hoax. However, this is not the first time that the alleged Llorona has appeared in Colombia. In the middle of last year the inhabitants of La Esmeralda, in the Colombian municipality of Arauquita, heard a strange cry and shrieks past midnight. Like what happened in Monitors, nobody dared to leave his house to know what was happening.

A chilling video shows La Llorona in a town in Colombia

But several witnesses returning home heard a cry and were surprised at the figure of what appeared to be an elderly woman, extremely thin, with long black hair on her face and dressed in a white robe, walking slowly towards the cemetery of the town while crying inconsolably. The men decided to follow her and at one point, the strange woman stood at the grave of a small child. It was at that moment when the woman turned to the men and gave a loud shriek that made them run away from the place.

The truth is that the video is really scary, and if it’s fake, we don’t know how the real Llorona should be. Maybe it’s a ghost, or a mystical being or a demonic entity. Although we can not rule out that it is a strange creature that emits a disturbing sound.

What is your opinion about the video? Is it a real sighting of La Llorona or just a woman standing on a tree? Feel free to share your opinion below.
