Psychomanteum (Dr. Moody)

A claustrophobic approach to necromancy & an adaptation of the Greek’s Catoptromancy; the Psychomanteum is an invention from famed Dr. Raymond Moody (a philosopher, psychologist & doctor), known for his experiments on life after death, OBE (Out of Body) & NDE (Near Death).  It involves an enclosed area, limited lighting (candle), and a mirror angled to only reflect the darkness.  This allows you to contact spirits & deal with grief.  This can also induce astral projection. 

The phenomena of ‘mirror gazing’ is from ancient Greece and considered one of the earliest forms of necromancy.  It’s original name of Catoptromancy, the art form that forces the past, present, and future into a cycle of mediumship by looking into the reflection of a mirror.  Positioned usually towards the moon.  A makeshift shadow box of sorts can be used to place the subject into complete darkness while staring directly into their reflection.

Experience the new reality.  Brought to you by your third eye.  Free-forming a self without being a version of that self.  A form of this (Scrying) can be found within techniques of many mediums.

What You Need

  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, religious statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • A mirror.  This can be a small makeup mirror or a larger one… it’s due to preference & size of the location you’re conducting the Catoptromancy at.

Forms of Catoptromancy & Necromancy can be found in more than a few Disney films. The Black Cauldron, Hercules & Snow White.

Dr. Moody established connections between the grieving of a loved one’s death and the spiritual healing that his Psychomanteum offers to the individual contacting the afterlife; a closure of sorts.

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.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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. 

3-Benefits-Of-Being-A-Land-Surveyor

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.

Blood Rain (Biblical symbolism or an act of science?)

Imagine a loud sound from the heavens; the sprouting of life from a red substance released via the clouds… this material changes the color of your clothing and alters the landscape it touches. This happened during two month period (July-September 2002) in Kerala (an Indian State in South India).  This phenomenon produced many theories on the origin of the red rain.  Was this connected to another life form or just an accurate statistic showing it’s rooted in the modern age?

Samples of the Kerala rainfall.

red_rain_kerala_optical_microscope

The Panspermia hypothesis demonstrates a connection to a meteor which would explain the red particles found in the rain and the loud sound, this does not provide an explanation for the two months of the phenomenon or the wind variations that would’ve changed the course of the rain. The Government of India initiated an inquiry into the incident and concluded that airborne spores discolored the rain from a green alga labeled “Trentepohlia.”   Has the truth finally been revealed?

Occult beliefs regarding blood rain can be found in historical texts such as Homer’s “Iliad” and were seen as a foreshadow of negative energy.  Religious texts reference the red tint associated with rainfall in numerous passages:

Psalm 105:29

“He turned their waters into blood And caused their fish to die.”

Revelation 16:4

“Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters, and they became blood.”

The 21st century and the Scientific approach that accompanies it will only bring more theories to the forefront.  Contaminated water is the main concern when it pertains to extraterrestrial lifeforms and algae changing the color of our water supplies; a fallout effect could rise with the implications mentioned in mystical texts.

We as a nation must ensure the safety of our water by ANY MEANS NECESSARY.  The North Dakota Army National Guard confirmed to TheDailyBeast.com of rumors circulating about a surface-to-air missile system drone in the skies of Standing Rock.  They insist the drone is only patrolling and “observing” private property.

Houdini Debunked Séances

And then promised to come back through the use of a Séance.  The man was Harry Houdini & his life was shrouded in mystery.  Houdini and his wife Bess had devised a coded message (Rosabelle Believe) that he would try to communicate back to her if he was ever to pass away performing his life-daring acts.  The passing of his mother sent him for answers from a spiritual perspective.  He noticed the parlor tricks included with the Séances & dedicated his time to debunking traveling mediums he would encounter, often offering them awards to showcase their “true” abilities. 

One of his best-known cases involved the self-proclaimed medium Mina Crandon, revealing her techniques he had observed through her performances.  The magazine Scientific American held a contest rewarding a cash prize to any medium who could demonstrate psychic abilities in a controlled environment.  No one was able to claim the prize, although the magazine published an article praising Crandon’s psychic handy-work.

b30b61b683-00_00_00_00-still002

Houdini claimed that Theatrical Séances were within the proper protocol of performance if the entertainer did not relay his abilities to the workings of psychic powers, but instead to a theatrical approach.  He invented the Séance Box, which covered the majority of the medium’s body.  This was the main factor in debunking the medium and their trickery.  All and all… Houdini never met his match.

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, astrologer & much more.  A random meeting with a traveling stage hypnotist (The Laugh Man) was the cause of his sudden BOOM in powers.  Many of the future events he describes have taken place or the time period has not arrived yet.

edgar-cayce-00_00_00_00-still002

His talents were not only tied into the future, he also engaged in readings for health information.  He worked alongside Doctors, with no prior knowledge of medicine & supplied knowledge that later has been confirmed by health organizations & Doctors to be true.

You are to have turmoil — you are to have strife between capital and labor. You are to have a division in your own land before you have the second of the Presidents that next will not live through his office … a mob rule!”

In 1935 he stated Hitler would rise and would only “come as an overthrow or an outside war” to end his reign.

Even though Cayce didn’t perform Séances in the sense of using his knowledge & powers for publicity –s etting him aside from the tricks associated with wowing an audience at-will; he did provide a service that holds true-to-the-facts.  Edgar Cayce’s readings provide an insight on the spiritual movement that rose to fame during the 1920’s.  Could Houdini have debunked Cayce?  Or would Cayce have debunked Houdini?

Séance (Tap into your Spiritual Side)

Well-known Magicians gained extra exposure by debunking Ouija board sessions. Spirituality captures the imagination of not only your inner-self but the self that surrounds you.  There are many techniques that many consider controversial or even witchcraft… the left-handed path & the right-handed path — depending on usage.  Two examples of this would be Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine” as it holds a right-hand atmosphere to the readers.  The opposite of this would be Aleister Crowley’s “The Book of the Law” which deals with the aspect of the left-hand.

The Right-Hand Path deals with concepts of the body, spirit & mind. Karma is also present.

The Left-Hand Path dives into the use of Satanic imagery, sex magic & other taboo methods of rituals.

1. Water Séance

Influenced by the Ancestors in Espiritismo (Santeria) & incorporated into the ceremonial process in the 1940s/50s.  It’s a channeling of working with spirits, your Ancestors of blood, spirit animals, guides & masters.  The spiritual elevation is the concept for this practice.  Maintaining a stable prayer while assisting in spirits that are trapped or lost in this realm.  This is where the white light, prayer, and communication with the spirits align.  The sole focus is on prayers, the evolution of your ESP levels & developing a gateway of guidance via your spiritual energy.  This can also be utilized for spiritual blessings/healing.

Pseudoscience or not. If you believe in it, it’ll take effect.

What You Need

  • White Light.  An aura surrounds you. 
  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protects you. 
  • The water.  It moves if energy is around, or channeling might come via vocalization. 

2. Talking Board

The mainstream tactic of necromancy is using a board of some sort to communicate with spirits.  Ouija boards (talking boards) have been used since ancient times but were thrown into the public’s eye in the late 1800’s.  One of the first accounts of this is in The Hebrew Bible, the Witch of Endor is sought out by King Saul of the Kingdom of Israel to communicate with the Prophet Samuel. The witch is immersed with familiar spirits, she obliges. Accounts speculate that she did not summon Samuel, but instead a force of manipulation.

The Witch of Endor, Dmitri Nikiforovich Martynov

04-1857-endor-dmitri-martynov

The alluring factor of the Ouija board is the power to communicate with an unknown source. This could very well be a side-effect of the Ideomotor Phenomenon (motions made unconsciously).  Ouija boards & the subconsciousness go hand-to-hand, acting as a form of Anamnesis.  Whatever your belief is — you’ll get something out of the experience depending on your input method.  Well-known Magicians gained extra exposure by debunking Ouija board sessions.

What You Need

  • White Light.  An aura surrounds you. Image B
  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • Talking Board (You can buy one like Image A or make one like Image B.

  • A mirror.  This works better with a larger mirror.
  • White Light – Candle for aura

5. Cartomancy

The teller of the future.  Cards envision this very moment… or did they? Cartomancy involves fortune telling via the usage of cards. The most common example of this is Tarot Cards.  Mainstream Cartomancy can be attributed to Antoine Court de Gébelin (Freemason) who launched the idea that the Tarot Cards were an Egyptian wisdom to be harnessed by Western civilization.

What You Need

  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • Tarot Cards (you can purchase these almost anywhere)
  • White Light – Candle for aura

Texts such as Dogma et Rituel de la Haute Magie written by the Sage Éliphas Lévi includes traces of Tarot.

51iw1vzihml-_ac_ul320_sr248320_

In the letters of the words AZOTH and INRI written kabbalistically; and in the monogram of Christ as embroidered on the Labarum, which the Kabbalist Postel
interprets by the word ROTA, whence the adepts have formed their Taro or Tarot,
by the repetition of the first letter, thus indicating the circle, and suggesting thatthe word is read backwards. 

All magical science is comprised in the knowledge of this secret.

To know it and have the courage to use it is human omnipotence; to
reveal it to a profane person is to lose it; to reveal it even to a disciple is to abdicate in favour of that disciple, who, henceforward, possesses the right of life and
death over his master – I am speaking from the magical standpoint – and will certainly slay him for fear of dying himself.”
