"I am a Demonologist.
I investigate like a
I use all the same
equipment and technique.
Except, I use religious provocation." ~ Ralph Sarchie
"I am not afraid of the devil, nor evil entities. But I do fear the influence they have on us, and how we can be easily persuaded to harm ourselves, harm others and make drastic decisions that affects all of those around us. The voices are not always our own. Control your thoughts." ~ Psychic, Chris Fleming
"I have a very strong & unwavering faith based belief system. I wear religious medals and I always carry a St. Benedict cross and holy water with me. And I pray A LOT!" ~ Chip
"If you're not laughing - you're not living! #GhostAdventures" ~ Billy
"It's funny how our culture has been trained to think TV = validation. Because someone is associated with a show, some take that to mean they're automatically trustworthy - and that's not always true." ~ Michelle Belanger
"As paranormal investigators our first priority should be to get to the truth about phenomena - even if we do not like that truth. This also means abandoning our own bias and assumptions. Further, it is not enough to experience phenomena. We must study, analyze, and research. Finally, let me conclude with my full support of using all the tools available to us to explore paranormal phenomena and pushing the envelope of what is accepted. Thank you,
Weird Dana, Greg, Adam, and Amy plus the #KindredSpirits
gang for an amazing show! #DevilInSalem" ~ Michelle B.

"Tarot is a way for us to gain insight into a situation that we may not have all the information about. One of the ways

"Ohio State Reformatory is a labyrinth. Each twist and
turn takes you somewhere you won’t anticipate, like this prison chapel. Around each corner is another layer of history, another inmate imprint, another era of time, all stacked one on top of the other, coexisting together. If you know how to, you can peel back each layer of information to decipher the messages, like a riddle left behind by all those energies still somehow connected to our time." ~ Weird Dana
"You have to know the history before you go investigate." ~ Zak
Saint Michael - The Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
