September 28, 2013 - EVPs of Spirit Mimicking My Voice
Our group (my youngest son, my oldest son, my oldest son's best friend, my brother-in-law, and me) went out to investigate a local property for paranormal evidence.
The property, located off Solley Road in Pasadena, Maryland, consists of a present day church, a recently restored Rosenwald School, and an old graveyard. To the back of the property, furthest from the road, is a stretch of wooded land that separates the graveyard property and a very long strip of power lines that runs between Glen Burnie and Pasadena.
We chose this property to investigate because my brother-in-law had passed by it a while ago, and saw a partial apparition of what looked like a young boy. That being enough to peak our interest, we figured we would go see what we could get evidence of.
The equipment we brought with us was limited, but consisted of two digital voice recorders, one emf meter, flashlights, and an em pump.
Although we ended up with 14 EVPs in total from the nights investigation, and numerous physical experiences, for this post, I am only going to focus a 3 minutes and 45 seconds of our 2 hour investigation.
At about 30 minutes into our investigation we took our investigation into the wooded portion of the property. At about 75 feet into the woods we found a knocked over tree which made for a good place for everyone to sit and conduct our investigation. All five of us got into a tight group, cleared a place on the ground for the EM pump, and I turned on and set one of the digital voice recorders down on the fallen tree next to me. The other digital voice recorder was left recording back by the graveyard (we'll leave that for another post).
I've uploaded a 3 minutes and 45 seconds audio clip from the digital recorder we had with us to soundcloud.com. If you would like to listen to it, the direct link to it is here:
This audio clip is pretty mind blowing to all of us, as we are all confident that it contains 3 very clear evps. What makes these evps most interesting, and slightly disturbing, is that they all sound exactly like me, and sound as if repeating a phrase I say in the very beginning of this audio clip. We've been conducting investigations like this for a couple years now, and we've never had a spirit mimic one of us. And it draws us to question what type of entities will, or can, mimic someone.
I've done some research online, and I've found people who think mimicking spirits are clear cut demonic spirits. And others who say that is not true, but instead claim that entities called elemental spirits are known to mimic the living. I also found sites online that say elemental spirits are notorious for hanging out around graveyards. Unfortunately I can't find much detail on what exactly an elemental spirit is. So as of right now, my group is left scratching our heads as to what we were dealing with, and preparing to go back to try and see if it happens again.
We are very interested in hearing other peoples opinions and thoughts on what you hear in our recording, and what you think it may be.
This audio clip has not been enhanced.
None of us heard this while conducting the investigation.
This audio clip starts off with me saying "Come on. Use some energy here. USE MY ENERGY." This is very relevant, as the evps we all hear sound to be a mimic of my voice, saying "my energy". There is quite a bit of audio of our group talking before the evps happen, but if you choose to listen to it all, you can get a good idea of what we all sound like, how loud we all, and what we were all individually experiencing at the time.
Throughout this audio clip, all five of us remained in a tight group, close to the digital recorder. The EVPs we hear sound as if they are a bit further away from the recorder, as they are not as loud as us talking.
The evps we hear occur at these time marks:
1st evp: between time mark 3:19 and 3:20 (voice says "My Energy") (this happens immediately after I comment to my son by saying "I Know")
2nd evp: between time mark 3:23 and 3:24 (voice says "My Energy") (this is the easiest to hear, as none in the group is talking.)
3rd evp: between time mark 3:44 and 3:45 (voice says "My Energy") (this is actually the last sound on this audio track. It happens immediately after I comment to my son's friend by saying "YES")
