On Saturday evening I went to a highly enjoyable and mind opening ghost tour that commenced at around 20:30 and ended at 02:00. This was my first experience of anything of this nature. My fascination for ghosts and the paranormal has always been there from an early age but the evening was met with more scepticism than belief...
The event took place all around the castle and we entered the rooms of the interior. We had been on the tour for a good hour talking history and the previous encounters the organisers had experienced in and around the castle.
We entered the old kitchen area, there were around 20 of us and we were all in the one room and no one else was in the castle as it was locked up. The lights suddenly went off in the room. We were all together in the middle of the room and no one was near light switches. Then after 3-4 seconds they came on again. During this time the adjacent rooms and their lights remained on as we could see the light filtering under the closed doors. This was the first experience of the evening but it didn't work my adrenalin as much as the next.
We were in the same kitchen area where the organisers decided to set up the tables and a glass experiment to contact spirits that were present. There were five of us around the glass with our fingers resting on the top of the upturned glass. In one corner was a red LED light with "yes" written next to it. The room was dark apart from these lights. After several polite requests by myself and other members, the glass started to move... I was simply flabbergasted and it sent shivers down my spine, clearly there was no one pushing or pulling the glass as it was impossible to do this as we'd tried at the start and was met with much friction... This glass glided! Around 4-5 questions were duly answered and every time we requested the glass to return to the centre of the table it did! It astounded me and I haven't stopped thinking about it since.
I'd like to know how many other people have attempted spirit contact through the use of glass and I'm interested to hear about your stories as this truly blew the scepticism of the whole evening out of the water and now I must know more.
