How to Do An EVP Session
You’re not the only one who digs having a new phone or iPad. Spirits looovvvve anything electronic. I’m not sure why this is, except that gadgets of the electric kind make it easier for spirit to let us know they’re around.
Throughout the ages, spirit has used human “stuff” to give us a sense of their presence; there’s a house in Greenwich Village that Thomas Jefferson once lived in. The residents say his ghost loves to flush the toilets. But there’s something about electrical current that meshes even more nicely with the vibration of the spirit plane.
Professional ghosthunters have all kinds of high-tech doohickeys to measure the presence of spirit, but I had a chance to interact with the Other Side simply using my iPhone.
It’s called “EVP” – “electronic voice phenomenon.” Ghosthunters have been known to leave recording devices running in an area that’s purported to be haunted. Upon playback, they’ll hear voices, noises and other things that weren’t witnessed at the time. The digital sensitivity of the machine picks up on other dimensions.
I was with a friend recently who suspected that her late father was hanging around her house. We started our session by first invoking the white light of protection in the space. This is critical whenever you work with the spirit dimension, because, let’s face it: we don’t know everything and you never know who might decide to use the open channel. So invoking the white light is just good practice, like putting on your seat belt.
We lit a candle (which helps spirit focus in on our presence) and invited her father to join us in our sacred space. Then I turned on my phone’s Voice Memo function.
I asked several questions, leaving a space for him to “answer.”
After a few minutes, we closed the sacred space, blew out the candle – then played back the recording.
Amazingly, we heard “answers” to our questions. They came in short one or two word bursts (yeah, don’t expect a full-on conversation or the Gettysburg Address; its not so easy for spirit to mesh their energy with ours to the degree that we can talk like we do with our friends). Plus, we heard a knocking sound that we hadn’t heard during the session.
I had a similar experience when I was studying at the Arthur Findlay College in the UK. We set up a tape recorder in one of the rooms most used for spirit work, asked questions — then played back the answers, which featured two distinctly different male voices and one female voice. Wowza.
Needless to say, EVP can be pretty cool. And its nice to know that your phone can be used to “make a call” as it were to loved ones on the Other Side.
