  1. Poveglia Island part 3
  2. I had a great great interest in the field of the paranormal since I was a kid.. I used to read a lot of books on the subject of paranormal from the library. This is the most fascinating thing for me and I also feel that spirituality is incomplete without exploring this field in life. My interest in the paranormal increased massively since I predicted my father's death some years ago and my premonition came true. Since then I have been a strong believer in the paranormal. This journal will record events of a paranormal nature and explore this area as much as possible
  3. The Solway Firth Spaceman May, 1964 On 23 May 1964, Jim Templeton, a firefighter from Carlisle, Cumberland (now part of Cumbria), took three photographs of his five-year-old daughter while on a day trip to Burgh Marsh. Madonna of Bachelor's Grove - 1991 The Ghost Research Society of America took this photo at Bachelor's Cemetery in Illinois, after it noticed strange readings on its equipment. Researchers didn't see anything at the time, but when this image was exposed, it showed a woman in white clothing sitting on one of the graves.

  5. Peche island The little island lies just off shore in the Detroit River about two kilometres east of Belle Isle. Possibly you’ve noticed its calming greenness as you hurry to work along Riverside Drive and wondered what’s over there. Perhaps you motored over on your boat for a picnic and pondered the picturesque cement bridge. Older readers may remember when the island was supposed to be developed into everything from a swanky housing development to an amusement park and wonder why all these plans fell through. According to descendants of the French family, which once settled the island for almost 100 years, there is a good reason why Peche, or Peach Island, remains a virtual wilderness in the middle of an urban metropolis: it has a curse on it. The Native Legend Before delving into the story of the curse, it is worthwhile to reflect on the fascinating Native Canadian legend about how Peche Island was formed. The spirit of the Sand Mountains on the eastern coast of Lake Michigan had a beautiful daughter whom he feared would be stolen away. To guard against this, he kept her floating in the lake inside a wooden box tethered to the shore. The South, North and West Winds battled over this maiden, throwing up a huge storm. The girl drifted away and washed up at the shore of the Prophet, the Keeper of the Gates of the Lakes, at the outlet of Lake Huron. He was happy to find the beautiful castaway. The Winds soon found her again and teamed up to destroy the Prophet’s lodge. The maiden, the box, parts of the lodge and the Prophet were swept into the water and drifted through Lake St. Clair to the Detroit River. The remnants of the box formed Belle Isle and the old Prophet was lodged further upstream forming Peche Island. From Legends of Detroit, Marie Watson Hamlin, 1884 The French Connection On the earliest French maps of this region, the island was named either Isle au Large, or Isle du Large. Possible meanings include “at a distance,” since Peche Island is the farthest island upstream from Detroit before entering Lake St. Clair or “keep your distance,” because of dangerous shallows on the north side. The island was next called some variation of Peche Isle, including Isle aux Pecheurs and Isle a la Peche, the French word for fish – the island was once used as a fishing station. In 1789, what is now Ontario was divided into five administrative districts for the regulation of the land. The Board of the Land Office for the Windsor region needed title to the island, which was mostly in the hands of the Indians in order to issue land grants. A treaty with the Indians was accomplished in 1790 for lands in the western Ontario peninsula, but it excluded Peche Island possibly because the Ottawas, Chipewas, Pottawa-tomies and Hurons who signed the treaty wished to retain the island as a fishing ground. Local businessmen possibly did not notice that Peche Island was not among the lands transferred to the Crown and began petitioning for grants for the land. Alexis Maisonville was among them and it seems that he eventually obtained some sort of title to the island and it even became known as Maisonville’s Island for a time. Perhaps the first permanent residents of the island were a French Canadian family named Laforet dit Teno. Evidence suggests that the family moved to the island somewhere between 1800 and 1812 and possibly earlier – an entry in surveyor John A. Wilkinson’s notebook for December 27, 1834 says the family had been living on the island for 34 years. Irvin Hansen Dit Laforet, a descendant, believes the family settled the island even earlier. In his article, “Peche Island: Occupancy and Change of Ownership 1780-1882” he describes how Jean Baptiste Laforest was granted the island in 1780 for his service in the British military as a guide and interpreter and for his family’s steadfast support of the Crown. (No deed was ever found, however, nor was there any evidence of a grant recorded in the land office.) Jean moved to the island with his wife and his five-year-old son Charles. Jean built a homestead to verify his claim and passed the title onto Charles. In January 1781, Jean Mary Laforest was the first Laforest to be born on Peche Island. They had seven other children. Apparently, they shared the island with a group of local natives who occupied the western portion, keeping the eastern side for themselves. According to Laforest family legend, Jean bartered with the natives to gain ownership of the island, closing the deal with the exchange of some livestock. The Laforest family lived on the island confident of their ownership for almost 100 years. By 1834, Charles and Oliver Laforet (the ‘s’ had been dropped by this time) maintained their large families on the island. At that time about 25 acres had been fenced and were under cultivation. The settlers had constructed a house and a barn, but there is no further information about their petition for a grant to the island. In 1857, Peche Island was finally transferred to the Crown by the Chippewa Indians, but there was no great rush to acquire grants perhaps because local people believed that the island legally belonged to the Laforet family. In 1868, someone did attempt to purchase it, but because of the belief that it belonged to the Laforet family, no further action was taken. “They and their ancestors having been in possession for a long series of years, and having always regarded the place as their home, and considered that they would be awarded at least squatters’ privileges in respect of the said Island. …the island may if sold, be sold to the said Laforet or Teno family, provided they are willing and able to pay a fair price therefor.” Essex County Council, Minutes, June 1868 - June 1873 The last Laforets on the island were Leon (Leo) Laforest and his wife Rosalie Drouillard. Leo was the grandson of Jean Baptiste and had been born on the island in 1819. He and Rosalie, who had been born on Walpole Island and was the daughter of a Native interpreter, had 12 children, the last being born in 1880. They raised livestock, grew crops and engaged in commercial fishing. Rosalie supplemented their income by weaving straw hats and selling them in Detroit. When a deed for the land could not be found, Leon staked out four acres in 1867 when it became part of Canada. He paid taxes on this property until he died in 1882. In 1870, Benjamin and Damase Laforest, cousins of Leon had entered into an agreement with a local Windsor businessman named William G. Hall concerning commercial fishing. Benjamin filed a quit claim deed at the local township office giving him squatter’s rights. Many years later, an affidavit confirmed that Leon LaForest had agreed orally to the commercial fishing contract, but he had never signed his name to anything. Hall applied for a land patent of 106 acres in 1870, which included the whole island except for Leo’s four acres. Hall eventually received title to the island, minus the four acres for a payment of $2900 to the Crown. After Hall’s death in 1882, his executor advertised that Hall’s estate would sell the island, with fishing privileges and this sale raised the question of title. Benjamin Laforet (r.) was involved in a lawsuit with Hiram Walker over land on the island Hiram Walker’s sons purchased the property from the Hall estate on July 30, 1883, as a summer home for their father. Benjamin Laforet filed a claim on the 1st of August stating that he and his brother Damase had a one-third interest in a certain parcel of land that was described in the patent from the Crown to Hall. The case was settled and the Hall Estate was authorized by the Supreme Court of Canada to give the Laforets a one-third share of the $7000 that Walker’s sons paid the estate. Leo Laforet died on September 26 of that year. According to the Laforet descendants, a group of Walker’s men forced their way into Rosalie’s home and made her and the oldest boys sign the deed over to the Walkers. In Laforet’s article, he writes, “They [Walker’s men] threw $300 on the table and told Rosalie to be out by spring of 1883.” That winter, while Rosalie and her family were away in Detroit on business, someone came onto their property and ruined the winter stores. Because Rosalie was knowledgeable in the ways of the Natives, they were able to survive until spring. When it was time to leave, Rosalie got down on her knees and cursed the Walkers and the island. “No one will ever do anything with the island!” were her apparent words. Walker’s Folly? Despite his sons’ hopes that he would use the island as a retirement spot, Hiram Walker occupied himself for many years attempting to develop it. For five years, he had canals dug to allow boats to bring in supplies and to ensure the flow of fresh water through the island from Lake St. Clair. Two yachts were purchased – the “Pastime” and the “Lurline” for travelling to the island from Walker’s office and for cruises and parties on the river and lakes. Walker built what has been described as a 54-room or 40-room mansion. He planted hundreds of trees, put in an orchard, and built a green house to cultivate flowers. He also put in a golf course, stables a carriage house and he installed a generator for electric lights. It was widely thought that this was no summer “home” for Walker but an attempt on his part to create a resort. The only problem was, his intended market, the society people of Detroit, all went to nearby Belle Isle. The Curse Takes Hold Willis Walker, a lawyer who had handled the purchase of the island, died soon afterwards at the tender age of 28. Hiram did not enjoy the island for long. In June of 1895, he transferred the land to his daughter Elizabeth Walker Buhl because of ill health. (Apparently, she was not a benevolent Walker; legend has it that she did not let the locals pick the island’s abundant peach crop, as had been the case for many years. She had them dumped into the river; they came in their boats to scoop them up.) The ruins of Hiram Walker's island mansion Hiram was quite ill while he worked on his Peche Island project, suffering a minor stroke before dying in 1899. Edward Chandler Walker died relatively young in 1915. Prohibition caused embarrassment for sons and grandsons who are American but operating a Canadian based distillery. They didn’t want to be seen as bootleggers so they sold their father’s empire in 1926 only 60 years after he established it. Hiram Walker & Sons distillery was purchased by Toronto’s Cliff Hatch in 1926 ending the Walker dynasty. The Walker family leaves Walkerville and abandon the town their father founded in 1858. Some remain in the Grosse Point area. At the time of amalgamation with Windsor in 1935, no Walkers lived in Walkerville How It Affects Island Development Elizabeth Buhl sold the island to the Detroit and Windsor Ferry Company in 1907. At that time, the president of the company, Walter E. Campbell stated that the island would be made into “one of the finest island summer resorts in America,” and that “the big house…at the upper end of the island…has 40 rooms and will be easily converted into a temporary pavilion at least” according to the Detroit News, Nov. 11, 1907 Mr. Campbell apparently died in the home on the island that same year. The property fell into a state of disrepair. In 1929, the house burned to the ground. Some say a huge lightning bolt hit it. Needless to say, nothing ever came of Campbell’s plans to create a park on the island. Although the island still legally belonged to the Detroit, Belle Isle and Windsor Ferry Company and after 1939, to its successor the Bob-Lo Excursion Company, the island remained deserted except for picnickers, young lovers and probably rumrunners during Prohibition in 1920s and 30s. It is believed that the Bob-Lo Company bought the island to deter development of another Bob-Lo Island (an island further down the river near Amherstburg that had was developed as an amusement park until the latter part of the last century). Peche Island was so neglected that as late as 1955, the employee who guarded the island for the Bob-Lo Company spent his spare time there fishing for sturgeon, trapping muskrats, and hunting ducks. Despite vigorous efforts by local groups to have the island purchased by some government agency for use as a park, the Bob-Lo Co. retained the island until 1956 when it was sold to Peche Island Ltd. Their plans included filling the island’s water lot in to create a residential area. With this aim in view, the remains of the Walker house were removed in 1957. The scheme was abandoned that same year, reportedly because of a lack of suitable landfill. Local rumour has it that the plan was in some way connected to the fact that Detroit was short of space for a garbage dump. Other proposals for the island followed quickly but nothing concrete happened until 1962, when Detroit lawyer and investor E. J. Harris purchased it. His plan included dredging the canals and creating a ski hill and protective islands. A few years later, Sirrah Ltd. purchased the island and its water lot. This despite strong resistance by many Windsor delegations and groups who wished to see the island turned into a public park. Under the direction of E. J. Harris, Sirrah planned and actually began work on an extremely elaborate park area for the island. He constructed several buildings and sewage, hydro, water and telephone were connected to the mainland. The project operated for one season with ferry boats from Dieppe Park and barges from Riverside. Due to financial difficulties and mismanagement, Sirrah declared bankruptcy in 1969 also losing the 50-acre Greyhaven estate in Detroit. R. C. Pruefer of Riverside Construction purchased the island around that time with the view of developing it into a residential area or commercial recreation park that would have included a marina but due to financial restrictions and other commitments, was forced to sell the island. In 1971, due to tremendous lobbying by various local conservationist groups, the island was purchased by Government Services with the department of Lands and Forest as the managing agency. The island was also to be used by nature study students. The government planned to spend a couple of million dollars on nature trails, picnic shelters, etc. but there were no funds. In 1974, the property was designated a Provincial park for administrative and budget purposes. Currently the island is a Windsor municipal park, and the city has no immediate plans to develop it, apart from bathroom facilities. Other than part of the foundation of Hiram Walker’s home, a bridge, some dried up canals and a piles of old bricks here and there, it is pretty much the way it was before the Laforets were forced off the island. Did Rosalie’s curse come true?
  6. Powers of the Paranormal Eleonore Zugun case
  7. I read this post in one of the threads here. By this post, it means that spiritual men look passive or can't be sexy. My point is that girls who find spiritual men unattractive don't have the requisite paradigm shift to find them attractive.. Spiritual men can also be sexy, all you need as a woman is a different way of looking at them. In fact the sexual chemistry with a spiritual man can be much more wholesome and peaceful. It may not feel like fireworks but it can feel like a gentle river. Spiritual men are also masculine because they are much more evolved and respectful and caring and understanding. This is also a facet of masculinity.. Women want MASCULINE guys. Masculinity means dominance and assertion. Dominance and assertion is what's hot. None of my girlfriends find Sadhguru, Matt Khan, Adyshanti hot. They find George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Russel Brand hot. What does George Clooney got that Matt Khan hasn't? Dominance and assertion. Matt Khan has self love, but that does shit for attraction. Now this is a reply from @Forestluv on another thread about assholes. This is exactly what I mean by how spiritual can be sexy. Transcending chimpness, doesn’t necessary mean chimpness is destroyed or dissolved. Transcendence can be expansion and integration, similar to other characteristics in SD. There can be new sexual energetics that arise with things like yoga, tantra, meditation, eye gazing, creating art, dance, mystical sessions - sexual elements that flow independent of, or in conjunction with, traditional chimp-level physical elements. Yet when one is contracted within chimp-ness, these energetics wouldn’t appear. If they did, it wouldn’t be considered “sexual”. Tantra sex is not so much about creating attraction but more about creating connection.. Tantric sex creates sexual energy and this is equally powerful in creating a strong sexual chemistry.. There is no need for these men to be Depp or Pitt.. They can use their power of connection to create a strong sexual desire in a woman. When we are fed something we believe in that because our brains are trained to believe that. In reality our brains can be rewired to believe anything as sexual. It's only cultural norms that make us think that some man is sexy and some man is not. But this is changeable. It's important that whatever you get attracted to, it should be healthy for you.. If you attract someone like Johnny Depp and if he is toxic for you, then such attraction is unhealthy. It further rebuilds and rewires your psyche to keep attracting the same types. In the end if you want real love, keep your eyes open to everything and let not any opportunity miss. There are energy and sexual dances in tantra that are meant to arouse and attract a body. This field is relatively unexplored. But don't underestimate the power of spirituality even when it comes to sex Maybe you think that the person is boring or the sex is boring but that's because you're not attuned to it on an energetic level. In the end everything is energy. Once you reach that energetic level it will appear sexy to you.. And not just sexy but irresistible.

The film, allegedly filmed during the 1970s, depicts what appears to be a Michigan dogman. Description The film starts with the sons of a man named Aaron Gable riding snowmobiles on an open stretch of land. It then cuts to Gable chopping wood before reaching for a drink. The film then jumps to a view of the forest before cutting to Gable's dog playing and running around on a road. After a short amount of time, the film jumps to Aaron Gable repairing his truck. Soon after, he begins to drive down a road while his son operates the camera. The latter starts to record a creature crawling on all fours in the forest. Gable stops the truck and takes the camera off of his son. He follows the creature's trail on foot. After a few shots of Gable walking and running through the woods, the film cuts to a shot of the creature, stood still and watching Gable. The animal subsequently charges at Gable, prompting him to run. The creature's jaws are visible for a brief second before Gable drops to the ground.
  16. Alabama tin foil alien incident. Witnessed by Jeff Greenhaw. Falkville 1973 In 1973, another police chief in a small north Alabama town took a photo of what he thought was an alien being. That October, Falkville Police Chief Jeff Greenhaw responded to a call from a woman who was “excited” as she reported seeing something strange. Greenhaw responded and came upon a 6-foot tall metallic creature with an antennae on its head. “It looked like his head and neck were kind of made together... he was real bright, something like rubbing mercury on nickel, but just as smooth as glass-different angles give different lighting. I don't believe it was aluminum foil… It was running faster than any human I ever saw.” Greenhaw was ridiculed and lost his job. Many people believed someone had played a prank on the chief. However, the photo he snapped of the creature that night can be seen in books on alien life. Max Headroom incident.
