Woman recalls meeting with Mothman at Point Pleasant

Woman recalls meeting with Mothman at Point Pleasant 86

The strange events that took place in the area of ​​the American town of Point Pleasant in the state of West Virginia have not yet received an unambiguous assessment. It is very difficult to write off everything on inventions here, but it is also problematic to admit the existence of a monster.

Susan Sheppard of West Virginia is an honorary witch, anomalous researcher, and a broad-spectrum psychic. Behind all this unusual activity is her childhood, during which she found herself among many mysterious phenomena, including the appearance of the Moth Man in West Virginia in the 1966-1967s.

The majority of people remember these events as incidents in the town of Point Pleasant, when throughout the year the locals began to meet a strange winged creature with red eyes. The creature disappeared after the local Silver Bridge collapsed and dozens of people died.

Since then, Moth-Man has been associated with a harbinger of mass death, although it is still not clear what kind of creature it was, why it manifested itself in this way before the disaster and what he needed from people. Susan Sheppard remembers those days well. According to her, she is probably one of the few people in West Virginia who remembers how it all began and who has survived to this day.

“One cold November day in 1966, my sister came home from school and began to tell a strange story that happened the day before in the family of her classmate Partridge. At that time I was too young to go to school, I sat at the table and ate the leftover candy from my Halloween bag.

The kitchen was warm, outside there was a hill with yellowish grass. I always thought that there was something unusual in these forests. But back to my sister. She ran into the house and began to tell that Daddy Partridge last night I went to my barn and saw something with red eyes, and then their dog disappeared without a trace – a German shepherd named Bandit.

The strange red eyes gazing out of the doorway of the old barn are not what you might have heard about in local fairy tales and legends, so my childish mind was immediately alerted. Since then, I have noticed and remembered all these stories better than anyone else in my family. It must be said that the average West Virginian at first did not take all these stories seriously. Only later, when the legends about the Moth-Man began to diverge, when this strange alien-man Indrid Cold appeared and people began to see the Men in Black, they believed, since these stories affected their families.

My family lived in the small community of Shannon’s Knob in rural West Union County. The Partridge family lived 8 miles from us in Center Point, which is 100 miles from Point Pleasant. It was from that night that observations of the Moth Man began in West Virginia.

That evening, Merle Partridge was watching TV with his son Roger, who was 11 years old. Suddenly, they heard their German Shepherd Dog Bandit barking loudly outside the house. It sounded strange and atypical, and the TV at that moment immediately began to blink, and then made a strange creaking sound.

Merle decided to go out and see what was out there on the street. The man took the flashlight and went out, and Roger ran after him. Near the barn, they saw a dog standing and barking, looking out the open door of the empty barn. Initially, Mr. Partridge did not see any red eyes in the doorway. It was only when he looked into the barn that he suddenly saw what he described as “An intense red light like electricity.” And then he saw a big dark figure there. She moved abruptly, as if she had fallen off a shelf.

The fur on the back of the shepherd stood on end at that moment and she began to bark even louder and growl. The man fired a gun into the barn once, after which the dog ran into the barn and disappeared there. People did not follow her, but decided to return to the house. The television was on again, but Mr. Partridge kept his rifle by the bed that night.

The next morning it became clear that the dog was nowhere to be seen and they remembered that they had last seen the Bandit running into the barn. After that, Merle and his children Mary, Roger and Gary went to the ill-fated barn and found the Bandit’s paw prints inside, which disappeared so suddenly, as if something had grabbed the dog and carried it through the air.

At the same time, Merle found some more traces on the dirty and dusty floor of the barn. They did not belong to a dog or a person and were so unusual that he could not understand what creature could leave them. In appearance, they most of all resembled the footprints of a bird, similar to a turkey, while being abnormally huge. At that moment, Merle Partridge did not yet know that yesterday that same evening, just an hour after he saw red eyes in his shed, a hundred miles from this place in the town of Point Pleasant, a couple of Roger and Linda met the same creature Scarberry.

They saw a strange large red-eyed creature on the outskirts of the city near a chemical plant. ”From that evening, similar stories began to appear in the circle more and more often. The Moth-Man“ settled down ”in this place.

Later, when writer John Keel interviewed the residents of the area to collect material for his sensational book about The Mothman Prophecies, Merle Partridge in his notes somehow turned into Newell Partridge, and the date November 15, 1966, when he saw red-eyed creature in his barn, October 15, 1967.

Therefore, the story of Merle, although it was the very first meeting with the mysterious red-eyed creature, was not widely known. According to Susan Sheppard, she does not know why this happened, maybe Keel was not working carefully, or there was just confusion.

Spirited Away Nation: Magic in Indonesia is everywhere

Spirited Away Nation: Magic in Indonesia is everywhere 99

Indonesia is not one of those countries that fascinates at first sight. Too much poverty and disorder. One Indonesian pantun, an edifying quatrain, says: just as a worm from a stream falls into a river, so love sinks into the heart from the eyes, that is, it depends on external attractiveness. However, appearance, surface, visibility are not a priority for the Indonesians. You need to feel this country with your heart.

Perhaps this is the influence of difficult climatic conditions: it is rather difficult to think in a permanent sauna. American government structures even impose restrictions on access to posts of a certain level for persons who have spent more than three years in tropical Asia. It is believed that cognitive abilities undergo irreversible changes in such conditions.

The principles of formal logic cease to operate in this corner of the planet, which is literally between the worlds: underwater – a constantly approaching ocean, air – in the form of hurricanes, and fiery – a chain of active volcanoes encircles the country in a ring.

During the eruption of Mount Agung in Bali in 2017, Indonesians were looking for an explanation for what happened not in the information of geological exploration and the history of climate observations. They thought the eruption was caused by the spiritual fall of the Balinese. 

“Why is this happening now? It depends on the sincerity of the Indonesian people. Balinese people need to reconsider their spiritual aspirations and mentality, “- quoted the local socio-political publication of the Governor of Bali, Mangku Pastika.

Yet the atmosphere in Indonesia is so dense that it seems more real than real objects. Noises, sounds, colors – everything is refracted in this thickened air. Without exception, all Indonesians with whom I am familiar have personal experience of meeting, communicating and other contacts with various spirits and ghosts, according to beliefs, inhabiting these islands. 

Talking about ghosts is not shameful; this is a completely understandable and socially accepted explanation of events. The concentration of events, which is not easy to explain by the laws of physics, is for some reason really increased here.

There is a big list of spirits inhabiting Indonesia. The most famous of these is, of course, Kuntilanak, the ghost of a pregnant woman. It can be detected by the smell of plumeria – flowers common in Indonesia that resemble jasmine, but with denser petals of a noble white and delicate yellow. 

These flowers grow there like weeds everywhere. They line the roads, bloom on the trees planted around the beaches, garlands of these flowers are worn around the necks of the newlyweds. In general, almost everything and always smells there with plumeria, which means that the demon is always nearby.

Kuntilanak appears as a beautiful dark-haired woman with red eyes. In addition, a spirit can be identified by a hole in the neck, a hole in the back, and bleeding. She marks her presence with a high-pitched female laugh. It is believed that she is attracted by the smell of drying clothes, which is why many Indonesians and Malaysians are afraid to leave their clothes outside. 

The spirit is especially cruel to men, one of whom, apparently, became the cause of the posthumous wanderings of a ghostly woman. The ghost kills the victim with nails, eats the intestines, and sucks the eyes directly from the sockets.

Sometimes Kuntilanak is identified with another spirit – Sundel Bolong, personifying a woman of easy virtue. Like Kuntilanak, Sundel Bolong died carrying a child conceived out of wedlock. For this reason, the spirit takes revenge on men and steals babies to replace their unborn baby. However, sometimes both infernal entities can harm young women out of envy. In this case, they turn into a bird, cause the woman to bleed and drink her blood.

Besides Kuntilanak, Indonesia is believed to be inhabited by countless other demons. One of the first texts in my Indonesian textbook was a clipping from the local press in the 1960s, which reported how an entire class in a small rural school turned into a “kerasukan”, that is, the children were possessed by spirits and robbed of their will. In addition to Kuntilanak, who deprives people of their will, does all sorts of horrors with them and is loved for this by the authors of numerous Indonesian horror films, many local ghosts do not harm a person.

A nation that massively believes in ghosts lives in a special atmosphere on the verge of dream and reality. In addition, sometimes it is not so important what really exists, how important is what your interlocutors and partners believe in, especially if there are many of them: collective beliefs and the irrational behavior dictated by them is the social reality in which you have to live.

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us 100

Shadow creatures are neither ghosts nor people, and we know these creatures as shadow people. It seems that the “shadow” know about our location and want us to feel fear or even panic in their presence.

People-shadows or shadow people are paranormal dark barely visible silhouettes known to mystics for a long time. They look like dark humanoid creatures or barely noticeable ghosts, often seen only with peripheral vision. Witnesses claim that shadow people only catch a few seconds, eyewitnesses also say that they looked into the eyes of shadow people and their eyes shone with a red light, like demons.

Shadow people can take different shapes and sizes: look like full-fledged people or even like animals. But most often these are thin tall strange figures. Be that as it may, they appear only for a moment, quickly evaporating into the air. Unfortunately, they can harm humans, which was proven in 2013.

The video posted on the web had confirmation of the existence of a shadow man who was visible for over a minute! An unknown silhouette knocks down a man walking down the corridor and drags him across the floor for several seconds. After some time, it also suddenly disappears, releasing the person. As it became known, the building where the striking phenomenon was filmed has complaints from tenants who more than once meet paranormal events in their home.

There are very few known cases though of adverse events caused by shadow people. In most cases, they appear or disappear as soon as they are found.

Shadow creatures can be spotted out of the corner of your eye. Some people who saw them or knew about their presence say that they are alien creatures, slipping in and out of our field of vision. In the eyewitness accounts, the observation of the recurrence of shadow manifestations is especially often mentioned.

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us

Whether they are an elusive race that has always coexisted with us is an interesting theory suggesting that these creatures are frequent guests in our lives.

Paranormal researchers consider shadow people to be malevolent supernatural entities. Perhaps shadow people will not cause physical pain, but they can affect you emotionally, for example, cause fear – this gives them energy.

Skeptics and scientists believe that shadow people are optical illusions or hallucinations that appear under the influence of drugs or physiological changes in the body. When the left temporo-parietal brain is stimulated, these strange images are created.

Often the appearance of these shadows is inextricably linked with sleep paralysis, when a person is, as it were, between sleep and reality. Scientifically, this is called hypnogogy. Hypnogogia is called “the phenomenon of the face in the dark” for such hallucinations.

All eyewitnesses, regardless of where they live, talk about the same sensations in the presence of shadow creatures. Fear is a cold feeling that overcomes a person at this moment.

Some people say they even saw the eerie red eyes of these dark personalities that momentarily appear anywhere and demonstrate the ability to walk on the walls of enclosed spaces, which defies the general laws of physics.

Whoever they are, they feed on human energy, emit bad vibrations and give negative emotions. We do not know how they got into our dimension, about the purpose of their mission and how they affect the human essence. The main thing is to stop feeling fear in their presence and not to “feed” anyone with your precious energy.

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits 101

A ghost hunter explained how to summon ghosts and when is the best time to do it according to The Daily Star.

Jade Capasso explores hotels, inns, historical places to allegedly reveal the spirits and ghosts that are present in them. She shares her discoveries on the YouTube channel Ghost Club Paranormal. The girl is sure that you can also talk with spirits.

The 28-year-old ghost hunter is confident that you can talk to ghosts and spirits using a voice recorder. A particularly good time for this, according to her, is the eve of All Saints’ Day – Halloween.

 “I think there is more activity during Halloween. More people believe in the other world, ”she said.

She recalled that Halloween pumpkin is an invariable attribute and symbol of the holiday. People decorate their home with funny, scary, and sometimes even terrifying faces.

 “I’m sure there will be more sessions and many will use Ouija boards,” she says.

To connect with the “other world”, you can go to a famous haunted place, says Kapassa. She also recommends checking your home for ghosts.

To hear a ghost, the girl recommends using special equipment. 

After all, ghosts, she said, emit sounds at ultra-low frequencies that are not perceived by the human ear. You can hear them, as she notes, only on audio recordings.

The girl says that you need to leave the digital voice recorder in a room where paranormal activity is observed all night, or ask questions and wait for an answer.

“Ask questions, and who knows, you might hear a disembodied voice answering you,” says Jade.

According to her, there is no need to rush, because the spirits must be given enough time to respond.

“You probably won’t hear them in real time. But if you listen to the recording, you might hear someone from the underworld, ”she said.
