I recently got into paranormal shit and I decided to take some pictures of these so-called haunted places. I'm not sure if these pictures have any legitimate ghost-related things in them, so I'll post them and let you guys decide.

Does anyone know of a blue Victorian-style house in Willow Springs right off Archer Ave.? My friend and I drove past it tonight and it was honestly the creepiest house I have ever seen. My friend said she saw someone behind the trees near it, but I couldn't see anything. IT WAS SO WEIRD.

I'm a very active ghost hunter who used to live in the Chicago area and was a member of the Ghost Research Society. I moved twelve years ago and live in western Illnois.

It's Halloween season and I am busy putting the finishing touches on my presentations on ghosts and hauntings. Between now and November 1st, I'll be doing a dozen presentations and training that run from 30 minutes to five hours. Most will be three hours at different college campuses.

I thought I share a few of the most interesting photos that I'll be talking about.

Subject:ideas/suggestions?
Time:06:38 pm
hello all.

I'm coming to Chicago Oct. 6. I'm arriving at the Union Station at 08.20 and will be there until 17.00 that day until my next train leaves.

Any suggestions of where I could go, what I could do? I'm going to have a mountain backpack on me, so that might limit my flexibility...

thanks much and peace!

Subject:New and looking for help
Time:01:54 am
 

Hello,

I am new here, and, like many of you have been searching all of my life for some sort of proof of the afterlife.

To be honest, I haven't found much and despite my collections of ghost stories, my avid watching of supernatural reality television, and my visits to haunted locations, I still find myself in need  of proof that SOMETHING exists after this.  I'm assuming I'm not alone.

I call this being a Ghost Skeptic....someone who is quite obsessed with the supernatural and life after death, but someone who still doesn't quite believe it exists. 

So I'm writing a book...an article...I'm trying to gather a collection of TRUE stories from people who have had experiences.  I'm not the first one, nor will I be the last, but this is something I am very dedicated to.

Please, if you have a story, let me know in your reply.  If you'd rather tell me over private e-mails, I'd be happy to do that as well, just give me your e-mail address as I will be making ALL replies screened and will not post any you would rather not have me post.  Having as many details in your stories is very important...the names of places and buildings, dates, years, etc.  Names can be changed if you wish.  

I will not use past posted stories, as I will require your permission to use said story if I actually do finish this.  Even if I don't, I will send all of you what I have compiled.

Either way, this is just the beginning of this adventure (well the prologue is written) and I hope to find real people on Live Journal to participate. 

Thank you for your time, and here's to not being a skeptic any longer!

If this is not allowed, I apologize.

Subject:Volume 2 Issue 8: Peck Cemetery
Time:03:50 pm
Since the 1970s, Peck Cemetery has stood out as one of the most disturbed places in central Illinois. It was rumored to be the home of Satanic worshipers, as well as the dreaded "Devil's Chair." As so many of these places have, it has recently undergone a revitalization. Join the Legends and Lore of Illinois as we explore the mysteries behind this legendary location!

Subject:The new issue of Legends and Lore of Illinois is here!
Time:10:07 am
Sunset Haven is a little known Carbondale legend. Like Coles County's Ashmore Estates, Sunset Haven is a former poor farm that was converted for professional use in the mid-'50s. However, this location has the unpleasent distinction of having once been used for animal research by Southern Illinois University. Do the spirits of tortured animals haunt these halls, or is it all just the result of inebriated imaginations?

The Fallen have put their mission to crack the universal gate on hold to pursue a lead involving one of the Midwest's nastiest creatures: the coydog. Will our heroes uncover the truth about the origins of this unique and ravenous breed?

This issue, like many others, contains pictures never before seen by the public! Just click on the cover below or simply go to: http://www.blackoakmedia.org/legendsandlore.html

Legends and Lore of Illinois Volume 2 Issue 1 is here!

Archer Woods Cemetery is one of the lesser known of the Archer Avenue haunts. Never the less, it gives the locals a sense of anxiety because it is rumored to be home to the ghost of a sobbing woman and a phantom hearse driven by a team of possessed, black horses.

After opening the astral gate, The Fallen have found their journey interrupted by some mysterious new guests. What do these interlopers have in store for our heroes? Read the issue to find out!

This issue contains a number of new features which includes a character profile and a section for ghostly games that you won't want to miss. Just click on the cover below, or go to www.blackoakmedia.org

Subject:Online study of paranormal and spiritual experiences
Time:10:43 am
Apologies for running this advert a second time, but I'm still looking for lots of participants for this study! This in genuine research and is not intended as spam.(Just a note for people kind enough to have done this study before - it's only possible to do it once, but please pass the info on to friends! Thanks).

If you enjoy answering questionnaires, please consider taking part in a study of paranormal, religious, and spiritual experiences, being carried out online by researchers at the Experimental Psychology department of the University of Bristol, UK.

If you have had one or more paranormal/supernatural, religious, or spiritual experiences (no matter how small or unexciting!) in your life, and you are over 16, you are eligible to take part. You don't necessarily have to be spiritual or religious, just to have had an experience that isn't easily explained by current science!

The study involves filling in questionnaires at your leisure online, and takes less than 30 minutes in total. The study is *completely anonymous*. Not even your email address is required! If you take part, *please* complete a consent form and *all three* questionnaire forms (so four in total, see links below for more info) and answer all the questions.

If you are interested in taking part in this study, which is fully endorsed by the University of Bristol's Ethics in Human Research Committee, please click one of the following links:

http://www.personalitystudy.net/public_html/consentform.htm
The above links to the consent form, which will shut down automatically on completion, so please note the addresses of the other forms in advance! They are at:
http://www.personalitystudy.net/public_html/first_questionnaire.htm
http://www.personalitystudy.net/public_html/second_questionnaire.htm
http://www.personalitystudy.net/public_html/final_questionnaire.htm
