There are occasions when we find ourselves in the presence of a spirit. There’s usually no way of knowing it to be true, but there are times when the signs are too great to ignore – when every fiber of our body knows that we are not alone. This ultimate communication is powerful and purposeful – we’re being put on notice, and very often, this corresponds to EVP. The other side is talking and we need to listen. On these occasions, there is no doubt; everything is different – from how we feel to the air we breathe and there’s no point in trying to explain it away. When it happens, you know. You just know.

Being patient has always been a part of paranormal investigation and EVP work, but patience needs to also be extended toward the spirits with whom we wish to communicate. Sometimes, being patient, and making sure that spirits know our attitude, is all we need do to show them we’re worthy of hearing from them – that we deserve their trust. Being patient with a spirit is no less than what we would want and expect for ourselves, but spirits cooperation is necessary in everything we do, so it makes sense that our approach toward them be one that is conducive to their engagement. Exhibiting patience is important to achieve the results we desire.

Most paranormal investigators do not operate as scientists. What is it about the methods we use or the things we do that causes some of us to feel we’re a part of the scientific community? We are reporters – paranormal journalists, if you will. We observe, gather as much verifiable evidence as we can, and report. We draw conclusions that are almost always based solely on our own truthful observations, and sometimes we just plain get it wrong. We can draw almost no conclusions that will stand up to scientific scrutiny, but sometimes the highest value can be found in the telling of a story. Sometimes being on the front lines paints a more accurate picture of the war. Sometimes the accuracy is less significant than understanding. With EVP, it’s the voices that drive us and the simple act of communication is the true prize.

A spirit voice is more than enough to convince us that a location is active, but is it enough to provide the complete understanding we’re hoping for? Some EVP are very pertinent to the location under investigation, and to the people associated with the situation, but most voices are difficult to pin down in that regard. Investigators need to be careful not to jump to conclusions, even if the evidence seems telling, because so many EVP sound out of place and irrelevant? It is reasonable that relevance is often hidden from us, and that just like the living, the deceased are well aware of what they are saying. The dead don’t suddenly lose their grip on reality - more than likely that it is our understanding that is flawed. It is more probable that we just don’t understand.

This episode of The Voices Podcast is in two parts. The first, reveals something very strange that was discovered during EVP sessions without the benefit of a microphone. The experiment, first done by PHPRS (Perry Hall Paranormal Research Society), suggests the possibility that silence is relative and depends entirely on how deeply we are actually able to hear. Modern technology provides the mechanism for discovery, but also raises even more questions about the nature of those soft voices we so eagerly attach to spirits. In addition to the experiment, we visit the grandchildren once again and tie up some loose ends through EVP samples that were not previously divulged.

With some of the current trends in paranormal investigation leaning toward the immediacy of real-time communication with “the other side,” it stands to reason that the idea of spirit bilocation would be equally as enticing. Is spirit bilocation possible? Can a spirit in one location communicate via EVP in another – hundreds of miles away? This episode centers around an experiment we initiated into that possibility. This ongoing and continuing experiment is featured on this segment of the podcast as we reveal the parameters and results of Phase One.

This episode represents a momentary break from our usual EVP-centric offering, and features an interview with Isis. The point of the episode is to better understand the Pagan religion, and because Isis is such an articulate spokesperson, she provides some much needed education about this unique belief system as it relates to both the normal and the paranormal. In today’s society, the Pagan point of view is often incorrectly characterized and severely misunderstood, so this interview is our attempt to change that by providing a first hand look at this highly spiritual and deeply “human” way of life. I hope you enjoy hearing from Isis as much as I enjoyed meeting her.

For this episode, we look at 12 voices captured during a single session that was recorded in the presence of a small child. Personally, I want to believe the EVP we record around children are helping them; possibly interacting with them directly – they certainly seem to be. But I think a careful analysis shows us that they are not – they’re simply commenting. Just like they comment around us. Just like they comment while we sleep, or in the bowels of a haunted building. They talk to us consciously sometimes, and sometimes they just talk, and we hear them. But just as there’s a suspicious lack of proof that spirits are able to affect any of our lives, there’s also no proof that they are capable of involving themselves directly with children.

This episode begins with a small discussion about what it means to be an EVP researcher, but quickly moves to the task at hand - listening to 13 more EVP voices. The new voices featured this time around may not contribute very much to the overall learning base concerning EVP, but they're entertaining and remind us of just how similar they are to us.

It may be possible to equate CEV (closed eye visualization) with EVP – a subject we’ve explored before on The Voices Podcast. Testing done of the subject does seem to hint at this connection, but more study needs to be done. This episode deals with that subject again, but focuses more on the resulting spirit voices recorded during one particular session while everyone was asleep. Once again, there does seem to be a correlation to the images created in CEV and the kinds of recorded voices, but drawing definite conclusions is still not possible. In addition, the voices that were recorded, while corresponding exactly with the number of different EVP voices, do not seem to relate at all to the unique situation that surrounds this session. Based on a tertiary understanding of explainable entoptical phenomena, and by playing 8 of the EVP from the session, it’s hard to say whether or not this visual noise is anything but coincidental.
