Grigori Rasputin


Grigori Rasputin


Born 22 January 1869
Pokrovskoye, Siberia, Russian Empire
Died 29 or 30 December 1916 (aged 47)
Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire

Grigori Rasputin was a Russian mystic who ascended to the status of a nobleman through the connection of friend Emperor Nicholas II of Russia.  He is also credited with influencing the Russian revolution by helping to discredit Imperial Russian.  Self-proclaimed healer and monk, Rasputin through the use of hypnosis gained these ‘healing’ abilities.  St. Petersburg at-the-time operated as a hub for the occult and the mystic arts; Rasputin elevated the scene to his own form of showmanship.

He is widely known for the various assassination attempts on his life, most of which all took place in a period of one night in December of 1916.  Given his immense influence in Russian politics, Prince Felix Yusupov and two conspirators lured Rasputin to a dinner.  He was poisoned, shot, beaten, strangled and survived each encounter but finally, his conspirators tied him in a rug and tossed him into an icy river.  He broke out of the bondage and attempted to swim until he succumbed to the cold.


For his work with the mystical realm, Grigori Rasputin is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

Mysteries in Ellerslie (Heidi Wyrick – Unsolved Mysteries & Christopher Thompkins – Missing 411)

Ellerslie, a small town near Columbus, Georgia, and part of Harris County, Georgia, is the home to two of the most mysterious cases in the world.  One is a highly publicized account of paranormal activity that first appeared on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries and was chronicled in the Hollywood film “A Haunting in Georgia.”  The other is a lesser known case of a man who just vanished into thin air while on the job as a land surveyor.  They take place in the same vicinity of Ellerslie (10 minutes from each other) and in different eras; one in the early 1990s and the other in 2002.  Although there are logical explanations for almost everything, these cases perplex even the most skeptical minds.

The first case consists of the Wyrick family and the emergence of a spirit called “Mr. Gordy.”  Andrew and Lisa Wyrick had just moved into their new house in the heart of Ellerslie in February 1989.  Their daughter Heidi, eight years old at-the-time started to engage with a spirit by the name of Mr. Gordy through the use of her ESP.  Mr. Gordy sported a black suit and tie and was an elderly man in the form of a white light spirit. 

Mr. Gordy would play with Heidi in the backyard and often in her bedroom. Heidi’s parents first thought Mr. Gordy was an invisible friend, this changed when a new spirit who called himself “Con” appeared at the Wyrick’s front door; Heidi answered and Con was covered in blood and had an injured hand.   The Wyrick’s searched their neighborhood and found no trace of a man named Con.  This was their entry into the world of the paranormal and Heidi’s amazing journey of ESP.



Soon after the appearance of Con, Lisa made an inquiry with her sister about the spirits and the names of “Mr. Gordy” & “Con”.  Lisa’s sister informed her that the property used to be an estate of Catherine Ledford’s family.  They contacted Catherine and found out that a James S. Gordy once owned the property and James S. Gordy had been deceased since 1974.  The Wyricks contacted renowned parapsychologist, Dr. William Roll.  Heidi accurately pointed out Mr. Gordy and Catherine’s Uncle Lon “Con” Batchelor from an array of photos shown to her by Dr. Roll.  Mr. Gordy was a prominent real estate investor in Columbus, Georgia and had several properties that spanned into nearby Ellerslie and Lon “Con” Batchelor had lost his hand in a cotton gin accident and died in 1957 from cancer. 

The evidence clearly pointed to a paranormal realm and that Heidi was opening a channel for the spirits she encountered.  The Wyrick family contemplated moving, but the information provided to them advised that the ESP activity would resume regardless of location.  Other paranormal investigators claimed that the portal to the Wyrick’s house manifested in front of the fireplace… the energy field is the strongest at this location.  In the Discovery channel documentary “A Haunting in Georgia,” Lisa Wyrick made a statement that in her hometown she could hear screams and witnessed paranormal instances related to Indian burial grounds and the Trail of Tears.  The investigators also came to the conclusion that Heidi’s natural ESP mixed along with the location and high energy levels produced a perfect channel for the spirits to communicate through.

Heidi’s sister Jordan was born February 3, 1994, and soon had her own experience with spirits, but these were not Mr. Gordy or Con.  Jordan was attacked in her sleep at two-weeks-old and sustained facial wounds; Andrew and Lisa initially thought Jordan had scratched herself on accident until Andrew suffered similar wounds by a shadow figure Heidi had seen recently in the house.  The Wyrick finally moved from their home in Ellerslie, but this didn’t stop the attacks.  In their new location, Heidi was lifted by her legs towards the ceiling and frequently saw the shadow entity.  Heidi now resides nearby in a new house and is married with children of her own.


Christopher Thompkins’ disappearance was first brought-to-light by investigator David Paulides and his work within Missing 411.  On January 25, 2002, Christopher left his house at 8:10 a.m. for work.  Christopher was one of four surveyors positioned near Highway 85 in Ellerslie, Georgia.  The area can be seen in the pictures below or here.

The three co-workers and Christopher were working in a line 50 feet between each other.  Christopher was the last person in line and was communicating with the co-surveyor in front of him; after a few moments of silence, the surveyor turned around and notice Christopher was nowhere to be found.  The surveyor then phoned his wife at 1 p.m. and informed her of Christopher’s disappearance.  In a statement retrieved by the Ledger-Enquirer, Christopher’s mother speaks on her son’s investigation:

Christopher left home about 8:10 a.m.  He parked his car at work and drove to the job site with the surveyor he worked for. (At the time I was also employed by the surveyor’s family as their babysitter.)  He worked that morning with three other employees in a lightly wooded area off County Line Road.  All the workers were about 50 feet from each other, walking in the same direction.  Sometime after lunch, around 1 p.m. the surveyor phoned his wife to inform her that Christopher was missing.  One of Christopher’s co-workers stated that ‘Chris was walking in the same direction as the others when he looked away and then looked back, Christ was gone.’ I was not informed of his disappearance until 4:15 p.m.

Found nearby was one of Christopher’s work boots hanging on a barbed wire fence.  His work tools, a blue fiber from his work pants and twelve cents were found in the grass near the fence.  The other work boot was located months later approximately 900 yards from where he went missing. 

Some theories point to Christopher being lifted from his boots with such an immense energy/force that it proceeded to drag him by his feet through the fence… this would’ve resulted in the money and work tools falling loose and a blue fiber from his work pants getting snagged on the barbed wire — falling to the ground.  What or who is capable of lifting a 130 lb man out of his shoes and dragging him 900 + yards with most of the evidence left intact in a concentrated area near the fence-line? 

Foul play is not suspected in the case and some people think Christopher simply walked off the job.  With limited information, we are left to ask, are the co-workers involved in Christopher’s disapperance?  Amongst the other theories are Native American folklore such as the wendigo and Indian burial grounds that populate Columbus and the local areas.  Bones are found on a regular in Harris County, Georiga since the Muscogee Creek Indians thrived on the landscape for thousands of years. 

A description from GeorgiaEncyclopedia.org details the removal of the Creek Indians from Harris County:  

Land speculators based in Columbus, Georgia, saw opportunity in the Creeks’ misfortune.  They illegally purchased Creek land from the Creek Indians and then secretly encouraged hostilities between whites and Indians, hoping to spark a war that would clear the Southeast once and for all of its native residents.  They found success in a brief conflict between the United States and Creeks in 1836.  At its conclusion, U.S. troops, assisted by Georgia and Alabama militia and led by General Winfield Scott, forcibly rounded up Creeks and sent them to Indian Territory.  Some went in chains, under the watch of armed soldiers.  Creeks had to begin life anew in lands west of the Mississippi.

As mentioned above in the Heidi Wyrick case, the mixture of energy from the surrounding areas and her unique ability of ESP made for a perfect combination.  Could Ellerslie, Georgia and nearby areas be a hotspot for paranormal occurrences due to the presence of Native American mysticism and burial grounds?  Does the lack of evidence stem from the police investigation or due to the actual circumstances that took place in the woods that day.

The G.B.I. lists the clothing Christopher was wearing when he went missing.

At the time, he was wearing a pair of navy blue pants, a plaid jacket with a grey hood, and a black skull cap.”

Project Astral has conducted our own Investigation and we have a few questions pertaining to Christopher’s disappearance.

The picture below depicts a standard safety vest (BRIGHT ORANGE) that is used by road workers, construction crews, and surveyors when they work near any form of machinery, transportation or roadway. 


Did Christopher forget his vest or did he just not wear it?  Was this regular protocol amongst the workers?  Or was Christopher wearing his vest and for some reason it didn’t end up on the G.B.I report?


Paulides has assembled case-loads of work dealing with missing persons in the national park system and within wooded areas.  All persons who went missing were found with their shoes displaced; most had bright colored clothing and bore no bruising or scratches (when and if they were found).  Some are returned alive, but with no memory of the events.

A recent article on Unknowncountry.com presented a case of vanishings.  A man by the name of Alan Lamers claims that in the jungles of Indonesia, locals warn of abductions that take place if they wore certain tints including YELLOW and other bright colors.  Some are returned, but with no memory of the events.

Stay tuned for our upcoming article where we explore more details of Christopher’s disappearance.

The Laugh Man (ESP-induced through Hypnosis)

We all possess a form of ESP according to the sleeping prophet Edgar CayceEdgar Cayce was deemed the “Sleeping Prophet” for his uncanny approach to fortune telling.  He would lay on a couch… enter a trance & interpret images that were channeled to him.  A master of Christian Mysticism… he dealt with astral projection, automatic writing, holistic healing, astrology & much more.  A random meeting with a traveling stage hypnotist (The Laughman) was the cause of his sudden BOOM in powers.


ESP divides into three levels/categories.

  1. Telepathy – The communication of thoughts without the use sensory or physical interaction.
  2. Clairvoyance – The ability to perceive information not available through traditional senses.
  3. PrecognitionVisions of the future, resulting from a paranormal experience.

Could a regular person with traces of ESP (Extrasensory perception) have a reaction from hypnosis or psychic, triggering an opening of the third eye?  Cayce stated that each person is born with ESP and it can be channeled into a projection of your past lives; you can achieve this through hypnosis or astral travel. 

Practical application of ESP:

When you wake up in the morning, how can you use this in your everyday life?

We need our intellect, we need all the data, but when we combine that with our intuition then research shows that we make better decisions.

Different techniques bring results based on the subject-matter discussed.

One of these methods entitled “Magic Television,” is targeted for children 6-10 years of age. The hypnotist will ask the child to close their eyes and envision their favorite TV show; the TV show is then a safe place for the child to explore inner emotions that he would not be able to communicate otherwise.


The “Handshake,” technique consists of the hypnotist reaching out for a handshake, the subject engages; the hypnotist then pulls the subject closer while whispering “sleep”.  Physical connections as such are often successful at triggering narcoleptic responses from the subject.

Subliminal Hypnosis,” is a covert method of inducing a trance through the process of social manipulation. An example of this would be a spouse conversing with their significant other… the spouse builds up the anticipation of an upcoming baby shower; the joy and excitement geared towards the baby shower will implant thoughts of pregnancy or conception within the subconscious of the “significant other.”


How to enhance your ESP?  Do a 20-day telepathy experiment where you and another person “tune” into each other using hypnosis techniques.

Edgar Cayce


Edgar Cayce


Born Edgar Cayce
March 18, 1877
Christian County, Kentucky
Died January 3, 1945 (aged 67)
Virginia Beach, Virginia

Edgar Cayce was deemed the “Sleeping Prophet” for his uncanny approach to fortune telling.  He would lay on a couch… entering a trance & would interpret images that were channeled to him.  A master of Christian Mysticism… he dealt with astral projection, automatic writing, holistic healing, astrology & much more. 

At age 23, Cayce developed Laryngitis and lost the use of his voice.  A random meeting with a traveling stage hypnotist (The Laughman) was the cause of his sudden BOOM in powers.  His voice returned and a direct channel to ESP was opened.  His many predictions include the lost city of Atlantis, Dead Sea Scrolls, The use of blood as a diagnostic tool and many others that have yet to come true

With the increasing readings performed due to his popularity, his mind fell to the stress of the trances.  His last “reading” instructed him to rest until he became well.  He ignored the warning and continued his work until a stroke debilitated his powers; he passed away four months later.  Edgar Cayce is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

He who looks inside, awakes (Precognitive Dreams)

  After a dose of Precognitive Dreaming, I’ve established a clear link between disruption of my REM & the ability to induce Precognitive Dreams.  This ESP seems to be present at early morning time-lines (3am-6am).  What very well could be a simple case of Déjà vu, develops into a controllable power through the use of sleep deprivation and the manipulation of REM.

In my latest article on precognitive dreaming, I described an encounter that has changed the way I decipher my dream state.


Imagine that old fella in his rocking chair, summertime lemonade aura… that’s the sensation that engulfs this vessel.  Humming.  Glided war machines.  I found a slight of society; they were accustomed to the flight of the future.  I woke up from the limbo and designed an article through the symbology.

Astral Projection comes into these familiar settings as I find myself without being myself.  My ESP is leading the way.  Carl Jung believed common occurrences or “synchronicity” as he coined it, were subjected to the realm of the paranormal.  In a lecture in 1951 entitled ‘On Synchronicity,’ he explains that events are connected on a casual level but also exert connections of meaning.

Semantics etched in history that follows us throughout life – a somber dream.  Harnessing astral energy as one awaits the winter.  The blues never screams, whispers, dances… it stays silent.  If you’re getting the winter blues, here’s a few films that might assist the hibernation.

Deer in The Headlights (Precognitive Dreams)

A sense of belonging, minding your business as usual. What could come from this?  Thoughts arise on the way home.  Then – CRASH.  A deer hits your hood, staring into your eyes, then limping off into the nearby woods. This is unusual, right?  Just another causality of the highway, but what if you dreamed a scenario similar to this? And what if that dream came the night before the crash?  A form of Precognitive Dreaming.

(Precognitive Dreaming is a dream that appears to foreshadow future events through the sixth sense).

I recently sent out random messages to Facebook followers of Project Astral

Have you had a dream about something, and then it happened?  Either exactly like a dream showed, or similar in fashion with the details changed?”

Everyone I’ve asked the question to claimed that they have, but can’t recall the exact details.  Here’s my most recent encounter.


A few days before the 24th I started research & exploration into Séances & how to conduct them.  This seemed to open a tunnel of ESP.  That night I attempted Astral Projection but instead fell asleep, losing the grip on my REM. My dreams started off as anxiety, pushing itself outward over the cliffhanger persona it had adapted throughout my history.  I envisioned my car on the interstate, the tire on the driver’s side BLOWS OUT. The dream is over.

The 24th arrives.  I enter my glass house & accelerate onto the highway. Along the way to my destination, I pass the interstate; I’m on a road that’s separated by a fence & on the other side occupies the interstate.  While taking a sharp curve at around 15 MPH – a deer runs into the left side of the car, maintains it’s path & limps away.  I suffered no physical damage to myself, but the left headlight did crack during the impact.  Was this a form of Precognitive Dreaming?


The blown tire is not only a concept of the story, but it’s also a warning to my senses.  Did the foreshadow of the blown tire save me from further damage that the deer inflicted?   The interstate was a location in both interactions.

  • In my dream, I was traveling on the actual interstate.
  • In real-life, I was driving on the road nearby the interstate.
  • The tire in my dream explodes on the driver’s side.
  • The deer smashes into my car in real-life on the driver’s side of the hood.

Carl Jung would not relay his interpretations to his patients.  Instead, he would hand them the power to decipher their own images of sleep. Synchronicity plays into the hand of cards on this realization, in part because what are we without instances of fate?  Did a glitch make its way into my subconscious?  Myself without being myself.  That’s my interpretation of this scenario.

A Psychic Meeting (ESP)

The Meeting

A glass of water on the table.  It’s alluring.  A concept inked onto the white screen of your Microsoft word document.  Oh, should we mention the Déjà vu?  There I was… opening an email from a random person.  The subject title of the email read: SLEEPING WITH ANGELSIt’s a film I collaborated on with Hussein Fatal.  The summary of the email included my thoughts on sleep paralysis, astral projection & why I was interested in these topics related to the film.  I responded with the obvious answers… but the aura surrounding the questions led me to search onward.  The sender of the email was a Psychic – self-proclaimed or not… this was interesting.  My obvious answers transformed into an ever-telling synopsis of realms that I thought a teller-of-time could relate to.


She never responded back.  I sensed that I overwhelmed the nature of her initial email & maybe my energy was not of substance to that fact.  Aside from that slight interaction with her… I’ve been without much activity dealing with psychics.


Different psychics use different techniques base on how they’ve grown into their abilities.

Nostradamus was an alchemist & prophet from the 1500’s.  Visions overtook his senses at a young age.  He turned to the occult & soon after encouraged a trend of patrons that would ask his assistance into the future.  His predictions were translated into Quatrains (a stanza/poem).  As with Cayce, astrology played a great deal into the prophetization he soon was consumed by.  Visions can be self-induced through Meditation, Séances, Astral Projection…etc.  He is said to have burnt all of his books relating to the occult.  White Magic or Black Magic can be used in contact between the channels.  Techniques shown on this site are connected to the White aura.




 More of this to come… including an in-person meeting with a psychic.
