Seeking the truth at Harding Museum


On January 20, 2018, our team hosted a “Teen Night” at the Harding Museum. It was a cold, drizzly night and we were expecting a group of twelve men, women and children. We didn’t really know what to expect or who they were.  It was a night of mystery beginning with the location and the people.

What could be better?

With cameras set around the house, one downstairs facing into the sunroof where General Harding was thought to have passed and two in the main hallway on the second floor – one facing the doll room and the other facing Anna’s room. We set up chairs for our guests and set the monitors for the night’s events.

When they arrived, we found out that the group was actually a 4H group doing a project about “people of the past”….. what better way to learn about people of the past than asking them questions in the afterlife? Very ingenious!


After giving a short little session about our equipment and what we do, we split into two groups of six. The Parallel Truth investigators that were present were Dani, Tim, Greg, and Robyn. Dani and Robyn took a group to the basement, while Tim and Greg took the other group to the second floor. To avoid noise contamination, we try to keep a floor between the groups.

In the basement, we were getting very slow responses or responses that were confusing to our questions. Sometimes when that happens, it usually means the spirit is either not used to speaking to the living or possibly shy. So, during the session in the basement, we found out why. The spirit was not a resident of the Harding House, but a relative of the group that came with the 4H group. This happens at times, but is amazing when it does. Sometimes people get very emotional or what to say things that they couldn’t prior to the death. But, this group was amazing. One young boy, maybe 8, wasn’t scared at all and embraced the fact that this spirit had been falling him and his family for years. He was excited to speak with him and use the dowsing rods, like a pro.

We didn’t have much more time in the basement before we switched up the routine and were on the move. I hope this group was able to make contact with uncle Mike later during their visit or after they returned home.

I’m not sure what happened during the other group’s investigation, but I do know that the evening was very eventful and exciting.  We’ll let you know what evidence we found after reviewing the evidence- which is the hardest part of this hobby.

If you attended this event, please let us know what your own personal experiences were during this investigation.

I hope it was a great learning experience for all.


One tool paranormal investigators do not use

I recently read an article about Ouija boards and ghost hunters. The article asked the question as to why ghost hunters don’t use this device to contact spirits. It asked if the board really brought about evil spirits- because of course, the Ouija board is really only a game made out of pressboard, plastic and a large sticker- right?

Personally, I know there are spirits all over the place, walking around us – day and night. Some are not so nice and others are. I also believe there are spirits that are not  originated from humans and might be something that’s not of a human nature at all- like demonic forces. I’ve never personally seen or witnessed demonic spirits, but I’ve heard about them. If there is even a small possibility to unleash evil- I sure don’t want to mess with a Ouija board.

This is not a practice our team utilizes and we do not ever recommend anyone else try it. But, in theory it is just a game. But, what if the person “playing the game” was more open to receiving spirits than others? Sometime a person doesn’t know.  If a person is more susceptible to receiving a spirit, it opens them up for all spirits, even the evil ones – so why take the chance?

Once that line has been crossed, going back is harder than it was to start. It would mean getting a priest, paranormal group and others involved. Then, if you believe in it, a lot of faith.

Here is the article I mentioned….


What are your thoughts about the Ouija board? We’d love to hear from you.

Exciting announcement

In the past, Parallel Truth has teamed up with a northern paranormal group Fringe Paranormal. Fringe has recently taken control of the management of South Main School in Bowling Green, Ohio. The best part, they have requested that our team visit the site and conduct an investigation to see what we find and provide them with our opinions prior to them opening up for fall investigations. Because of course, any haunted house needs to have evidence and proof of the claims.

We are set to head up north for this exciting investigation on Saturday, September 2nd.

Thank you to Don Danger for thinking of us and giving us a chance to help your organization.


Reviewing evidence from recent investigation


This past weekend, our group investigated a private resident in the local area and are in the process of reviewing all the evidence. It was a clear, mild night and we investigated from about 8:30 p.m. to midnight. We had some interesting personal experiences and heard some bumps in the night – but were they the sounds of the paranormal? That’s the question we are trying to find out.

It was a beautiful home with high EMF readings, which causes the “creepy feelings” but is this house’s creepy feelings more than just a high EMF electrical field.


Stay tuned to our findings.

What is it like to be a spirit seeker?


In the days and weeks to come, we will be going into detail about what it is like to be a spirit seeker, ghost hunter, paranormal investigator, or whatever you like to call it. Most people call us “ghost hunters”, but we’re actually paranormal investigators.

What’s the difference? 

Well, first of all, we don’t go seeking the spirits or ghosts that wonder the world. We just don’t go to creepy locations and spend time looking for hauntings. We actually only go to places that claim haunted activities or are looking for answers to unknown activities. So, we mostly already know that activity exists, but we’re searching for answers, names, history, reasons, but more importantly, proof.

Secondly, a spirit and a ghost are totally different entities. Why? Because a ghost is known in the paranormal world as a “residual.” A residual ghost is like a recording. It’s an apparition that can be seen at the same time of each day, a certain date, certain years, etc. It doesn’t matter that the house and stairs are no longer present- that ghost will walk down the same stairs over and over again until it runs out of energy. If it was a brutal hanging, for instance, a body seen swinging from a tree limb will happen over and over again, etc. These apparitions cannot communicate and have no thoughts, feelings, or message to give. It’s just something that happens when a spike of energy happens, like storms or until energy around them have depleted.

A spirit is a soul that has passed from this realm to another between what some believe to be Heaven and Hell. They are intellectual souls that basically continue living. They have emotions, thoughts, memories, and all senses. Each spirit’s situation is as different as the living. Some spirits are stuck, trapped and frightened and have no idea how to pass onto the next place. Some spirits choose to be where they are because of a family member, place, thing, or unfinished business. Some are happy, playful, mean, sad, or demonic. But, we have learned, that for the most part, the spirits act the way they were in life. I could go on and on about this, but, for now, I’ll stop here.

Who are we? 

Each member of our group has experienced some level of the paranormal during our life. Whether touched by the paranormal at an early age or later in life, we each have our own reasons for being a paranormal investigator. We each feel strongly about one thing or the other while others are more skeptical. The mixture makes a great combination. When reviewing evidence, we all have to be convenience before we claim anything as being paranormal. Just because there is a noise or thump in the dark, footsteps, or voice, we don’t automatically claim it to be from a spirit.


Why popular now?

Since the beginning of time, claims of ghosts and the paranormal existed. But, it wasn’t until 1939 when the first book was written on the subject. Why do you think that was? We’ve all heard of the schemes in the old days of tarot card readers, so called psychics and more. They were known to be fake. Talking about spirits back then might have caused you to be sent to the mental hospital and people to think you are crazy.

When I was younger, I was told never to speak about my experiences. My parents were embarrassed. My grandmother had the same experiences and we were never permitted to speak of it. I only learned about my grandmother because I spent summers with her. In the privacy of her home, she would tell me about her gift and even taught me how to tap into my own abilities. But, still, we never spoke of it. That’s my reason for seeking out this group five years ago. I wanted to no longer be afraid and understand not only what was happening to me but why.

But, with the popularity of popular television shows, horror movies, and access to the internet, people are more in tune with the spirit world. Skepticism will always remain, and should, but proof is growing everyday.

What we use to gain evidence? 

To be a good investigator, it’s not about the equipment you possess, it’s about your senses. Sitting in the dark it tends to play with your mind, but your body is normally the best indicator of spirit experiences. Through sight, hearing, touch, smell and senses, you can determine if a spirit is near. But, paranormal investigators like to have proof. The best thing to happen to an investigator is to have video showing a full body apparition or record a clear conversation with a spirit. When doing an investigation, we may use the following equipment: (we will talk about each device in the days to come)

*EMF and KII meters
*Digital thermometers
*Static and handheld digital video camera with infrared lights
*Digital records
*Night vision equipment
*Digital cameras
*Dowsing Rods
*Ghost box
*Electromagnetic pumps
*Rem pods
*Toys or other material objects


But, if you’re just starting out, a flashlight and digital recorder would work perfect.

That’s it for now, but stay tuned for more to come.



Who are we?


Parallel Truth Paranormal Investigators (PTPI) is a group of friends that have one common thread: a profound interest in the paranormal. But, for us it’s more than just a passing hobby.

Our group was formed in 2009 after an investigation at Waverly Hills Sanitarium. During that investigation, many had personal experiences and captured some very intriguing EVPs, which are voices heard on a digital recorder. After that night, a group was formed and the goal was to learn what is between life and death.

The members of PTPI believe strongly in a scientific approach to paranormal investigation. We DO NOT believe that every “bump-in-the-night” or “creepy feeling” is the result of paranormal activity. Our main investigative goal is to delineate between the “explainable”- or normal, and the “unexplainable” – or paranormal. Only after all possible explanations have been eliminated do we even start to consider the possibility of paranormal causes.

PTPI strives to correctly utilize the latest technology in our investigations. And we will always tie our opinions about paranormal activity strictly to the evidence we capture. Personal experiences are great, but unless they are backed-up by solid evidence, personal experiences are simply interesting stories.

Should you need help in a possible paranormal situation, please contact us.
Also, as a statement of fact, PTPI does not conduct se’ances nor do we use, or approve of the use of, Ouija boards. Some things are better off left alone!
