Samhain Stories – Hotel Phillips and Murderous Insomnia

Posted by on 11 Oct 2012 in Memoir, Repost | 0 comments

Every year on Intentional Insights I share some of my more charged, spooky, Samhain Stories. This year I am releasing a collection of such encounters in Real Wyrd – A Modern Shaman’s Roots in the Middle World, to give further insight into my experiences. As a lifelong intuitive and neoshaman by choice for over two decades, not all of my experiences with the spirit world have had direction, instruction, or even clarity. Every one of them, though, has meaning. Working with the unseen of the earthly realm is an opportunity to learn about life out of form, and be of some kind of service to spirits in need. Working with the other side of death equips me better...

Samhain Spectres – Hotel Phillips and Murderous Insomnia

Posted by on 3 Oct 2011 in Memoir, Repost | 0 comments

Four years ago in celebration of The Dead Time I began sharing some of my more creepy experiences of the wyrd.  Sooner or later most people experience phenomena they can’t explain, or that occurs outside the bounds of their belief system.  What it is and what it means is open to interpretation, and most certainly is in the eye of the boo-holder.  Bless the darkness, hold the light. In this particular story, I was on a business trip to Kansas City, MO, where I stayed at the lovely, vintage Hotel Phillips.  Despite that I traveled alone, at no point was I left to myself in the room…  Hotel Phillips and Murderous...

Healing the PTSD of Paranormal Probing

Posted by on 16 Mar 2011 in Q&A | 0 comments

This week’s inquiry is a comment from my last article Paranormal Investigating – Troubleshooting the Middle World. “Kelley, you said “Should you find residuals from the encounter with these spirits – things like paranoia, troublesome thought or behavior patterns that disrupt your daily life – these are indications that your PTSD switch for paranormal experiences has been flipped on and you should seek help in turning it off.” I dabbled stupidly with the Ouija board as a kid and other things before I realized the seriousness of it. Now, decades later it seems that something may have remained. How can I turn it off? Thanks, Carolyn.”...

Paranormal Investigating – Troubleshooting the Middle World

Posted by on 24 Feb 2011 in Q&A | 3 comments

Kelley, I’ve been dabbling in the Salt Lake paranormal scene. Myself, a friend, and a medium-in-training went to a haunted place that is said to have demons. I have an electronic device that lets disembodied entities speak phonetically. After some questions about what spirits were with us and to see if they knew who we were (they knew my friend), the medium then said she got a feeling of dread and fear. When I asked the spirits if they knew who I was, they said, “Death.” One EVP (electronic voice phenomena) said what we think was, “Don’t talk to him.” Another later said, “Hide.” The medium said that the ghosts were uneasy...
