A Warning Investigation
Having traveled 3 hours North of San Francisco to Georgetown California , what fabulous locations one stumbles upon, stately homes and sprawling properties that sit untouched with remnants of the Gold rush days and well before.
One might have expected to find me investigating the well know Georgetown Hotel for instance, after all its renowned to be one of the most haunted in the area, however my mind was wandering back even further in search of older spirits.
The Georgetown Hotel
One of the gold rushes Historical towns with its old worldly feelings, one can truly imagine back in the mid 1800s as the influx of everyone and their brother descend onto this beautiful early American Californian town.
All striving to get their piece of the gold.
In January 1848, James Wilson Marshall discovered gold while constructing a saw mill along the American River northeast of present-day Sacramento. The discovery was then reported in the San Francisco newspapers of which then ignited droves of money hungry people running for gold to the surrounding areas.
As San Francisco began shouting ‘Gold! Gold! Gold! The residents of the city had proof of the discovery and a stampede began to the gold fields was on.
San Francisco’s harbor was soon cluttered with derelict ships deserted by their crews. Workers abandoned their jobs – San Francisco’s two newspapers were forced to close their doors as their staffs were struck by gold fever. The populations of many of the coastal towns were depleted as many prospective prospectors headed to the gold fields.
As I wondered driving through the winding sugar pine trees further in the mountains outside of Georgetown CA I reached my destination.
The owners sadly will throughout my documentation remain nameless.
Not that I care about their names, but I wish to not give them credit for anything within the investigation.
Some may ask, what an odd thing to say and why not ?
Well the old saying gold ruins many will understandably so agree after reading this..
There are people with money and there are people who are rich..
Gold is of no interest to me but to some its a reason for living, breathing and provides ownership of everything they set their desires upon. Walking around with their heads full of a misconception that they can own real life, friends and family.
Sadly my investigation not only showed me the Ghosts of Gold Country but also provided me with a real life lesson of those living with too much, trying to use a serious paranormal investigation to promote their ego and solidify their mindset of ownership.
Over the years since the 1800s many have died an ugly death trying to secure such treasures for themselves and still do, money does literally bring the worst out in people and to this day it is still very much truth.
The location I will also not disclose due to the same reasoning.
I will however, just call it
I arrived at 1500 hours, sun shining , the trees and an ambiance of what some would call nature overload but for me all I could do was breathe in the freshness, smell and air and tear up ever so often in the awe of it all.
The Investigation Began.
In Four parts, Mine, Grotto, Barn, Noll
Walking into the woods my friends and I go, EPVs, Cameras, Video Voice Recorders in hand.
It was a calm beautiful warm sunny afternoon , no wind, no rain.
Entering the road to the mine and began its decent to the mouth of the mine, both EVP and Video Voice Recorders on and ready.
As we entered the area I began speaking out loud, asking if there was anyone that might wish to communicate with us, after just a few minutes of speaking we immediately begin the hear a beeping signal from the recorder and an EVP was captured, a long drawn out growl, distinctly followed by the words
I answered and asked if we could get given a sign that your hearing us, the EVP captured a word again with a long drawn out growl..Glove..
Oddly enough the owner of the mine was carrying a bright yellow pair of work gloves in his back pocket, a coincidence ? hmmm I think not..
I proceeded with the questioning again, and I again asked that we be shown further confirmation, this time the word captured was Heaven and with that A White Feather floated softly down to the grass floor.
I will begin to record here the words associated with the names and comments captured from the EVP recorder for each area, but please note ! that I cannot confirm to you who was actually communicating back to us at any one moment, as literally there was so many EVPs and communications captured during the entire investigation that lasted over a 2 day period.
We continued to Investigate and that evening returned to the same spot, that of the Grotto and the Mine.
After a short walking decent into the mine area the EVP captured its first name, with that
I welcomed Adam and proceeded to asked him questions and his replies were incredible..
Finally, Army, Alone, Dark.
As I proceeded and walked a little further and this time the name Jacob appeared,
Welcoming Jacob to the conversation.
Then the name Mason
Then the words, Work, Pick, Proud, Frank, Mirror, Crossover, Lost, Hunted , Forever, Strong.
Climbing back up the hill from the mine, suddenly unable to leave, as the EVP reader became was completely alive with activity, the name Peter and words Lonely, Live, Life were captured.
After a short time after saying our thank yous and goodbyes and proceeded toward the Noll
A questions was asked as we drove a short distance, what location next, the Barn or the Noll? As plain as it could be the word Barn rang out from the EVP recorder.
Doing as we were told we proceeded to the Barn.
The energy at the barn was quite different, a little darker and a little less friendly, the EVP meter was still off the charts and capturing the following,
Indian, Bright, Light,Famous
We arrived at the Noll,
The Noll, sitting at a significantly higher elevation on the property, a special place for camping and the feeling of being closer to the stars was evident. The temperature was cooler due to the elevation. We began the investigation with the same questions, please make yourself known or show us a sign, the words began firing rapidly from the EVP recorder,
Warrior, Indian, Dark, Bright, Light, Bright
We felt uneasy, for some reason the feelings we had experienced in the Grotto and the Barn were much lighter than the feelings we experienced at the Noll, almost a foreboding feeling surrounded us, it was an uncomfortable, being watched feeling.
After a few minutes the words captured were as follows
Evil, Malicious, Faith, Famous, Find him, Eyes, Look
With that we climbed back into the safety of the vehicle we arrived in and feeling a little safer that we had felt outside in the empty darkness.
We continued to ask questions and I then thanked out loud for the communication and asked should we leave and the EVP recorder again began moving off the charts, while staying in the red zone for minutes at a time, then recording the words
With that being said we obviously left, not wanting to face what ever it was trying to communicate with us, and we descended down toward the gate at the bottom of the Noll.
When reaching the bottom and the gate the EVP recorder did not stop, and carried on with an onslaught of words,
Leave me, Screw
On asking Screw what? and without hesitation the word THIS was recorded.
Monday morning and gathered again, eager to share the captures of the past evening.. The decision to go out again that morning for the last minutes during day light hours was reached and off we set again.
I think to clarify and verify was the reasoning, we wanted to firstly see and experience the same as we did the prior evening and compare, to hopefully capture the same EVPs
We took a quick trek down to the Grotto and the Mine, this time the name
Mira and words followed Life, Live, Pastor
The Barn was quiet compared to the evening before, but captured the words
We also took a quick walk into a wooded area where the remnants of an old miners camp once stood, the EVP recorder, recorded the following
Virginia, Pennsylvanian, Congress, Rome, Hole, Build
This was very interesting, the day was bright and sunny, but a chill in the air, we began the EVP recorder not asking too many questions , but the EVP recorder was incredibly active and the following was quite eye opening.
Pastor, Religion, Evil, Devil, Purgatory,Hang, Coin, Look, School, Lesson, Class, Teach, Knife.
Sadly without warning and after the investigation things began to turn very ugly,
The inviting party involved became angry, drunk and drug induced and ended up leaving us in literally a gun drawn battle.
Spirits showing me the way..
Constantly being told to look , watch , see and lesson meant something completely different to me during the investigation.
This documentation is really not about the investigation itself, but that that communication EVPs received those two days were literally warning me of imminent danger.
I had been listening and hearing the constant EVP reminding me that something was
Evil, Malicious, Faith, Famous, Find him, Eyes, Look
Little did I know that IF I had listened closely enough I would have avoided the events that followed shortly there after of guns drawn, the threatening of my life and that of my family.
The spirits did try to warn me to have
Faith, Use my Eyes and Look and Listen
Lesson Learned !
