Supernatural Saturday opened new worlds for me

More about Supernatural Saturday! This was the June 16 event organized by Debbie Beamer of the Mechanicsburg Mystery Book Shop.

Rosemary Ellen Guiley's presentation, The Interdimensional Earth, was another that kept every person in the room glued to their seats
Rosemary's research uncovered 11-12 dimensions on Earth, occupied by beings both light and dark, and all are interconnected. If you visit her web site, you can get an idea of the depth of her research.

Rosemary covered so much in her talk it's impossible to capture it all here, so again, I encourage you to check out her books. Here's a link to her Goodreads page or you can view the Bibliography under her Wikipedia page.

I came away from her presentation both frightened and intrigued. And, like many of the other authors there, with new story ideas. :)

Portals were one of the more benign aspects.

All over the world, people come across portals. Usually they appear a lot like the one in the photo, called King's Chamber in Fahnestock Park, NY. Dozens of similar portals dot the Hudson Valley.

The creepy part is, no one can find any historical evidence to explain their existence, and many unexplained activities occur near them, and often peak 1-2 days before and after a full and new moon. These activities include hauntings, mysterious creatures, UFOs, which usually are reported about the same time as bigfoot sightings, orbs or mystery lights, and - the most creepy of all - shadow people. More about them later!

All the portals contain strong magnetic fields, and some produce feelings of comfort, such as the Mother Earth chamber in Putnam County, NY. At others, like the Solstice Chamber, also in Putnam County, people often feel disoriented or dizzy. Some have mystical or visionary experiences in or near portals. In one of Rosemary's photos, a shaman called upon the spirits of the rock, and a craggy face appeared.

Under certain conditions, Rosemary said, entities can pass through these bleedthroughs between worlds.

What sort of entities, you ask?

Are you sure you want to know?

Okay, but if you have to sleep with the lights on, don't blame me!

Here's a list:
- ghosts
- fairies, or nature spirits
- mysterious creatures such as dog men, big foot, or any unexplainable creature
- demons
- djinn
- other visitors or unknown entities

Of all the entities Rosemary discussed, two I found very scary. First, shadow people. It's difficult to find a good photo depicting them because they are, basically, shadows, but are solid, and many times will wear a hat as in the graphic. They appear at your bedside. They don't speak, but stare. Anyone who's reported having been visited by a shadow person says they had a feeling of malevolence or ill will emanating from them. Why? No one knows. And I certainly don't want to find out first hand!

Second, the djinn. No, not the Robin Williams funny kind of Aladdin cartoon genie. These djinn don't welcome people with smiles and hugs. They've been around thousands of years and have claims on land, which because of population growth, people are intruding upon. And the djinn are pissed, and they're not going to stand for it! Mwahahaha.

No, seriously, I have abandoned any notion of ever building a house in the wilderness now. I never want to encounter a djinn, like the workers at Skinwalker Ranch in Utah (though you think the name might have been a clue!).  All manner of nastiness happened there to the ranch hands, people simply trying to carry out their duties. Rosemary actually visited, and saw a catlike shadow face watching from the window. She and her crew were inside the house and attempted to get out, but the doors were not just locked but sealed from top to bottom. With no cell service in the remote area, she tried the house phone, but of course it went dead. Enough to give you the willies, isn't it? Then don't read on, because more happened - cattle mutilations, space craft in the sky, a hole opened up in the sky to reveal an alternate reality, and through the hole, an immense black creature descended onto the ranch. (Not all while Rosemary was there, but throughout its history.)

All because the djinn didn't want to share the land with humans.

Needless to say, I was too frightened to buy Rosemary's book, The Vengeful Djinn, but if you're a brave soul, you should. :)

The wrap-up on Wednesday will be a little lighter! :)

When I was young I used to encounter all manner of visitations, scaring me so much, I refused to read or watch anything that could feed my 'hallucinations' more.

Eventually, I grew to accept it and now I like to read other people's experiences to compare and analyze events.

Have you ever been to Sedona, AZ? The red hills are known for their energy vortices. It was probably the most unique physical manifestation I've ever encountered. The locals call them 'spiritual vortexes' but to me it felt like magnetic energy--most likely due from all the iron ore in the red rocks. Either way, it was pretty neat. I'd like to go back some day.

Oh you poor thing! They're scary enough for adults, but I can't imagine such things visiting a child. *shudder*
I've read about Sedona and would love to go there, too. The energy's supposed to be healing, rather than negative - the kind I prefer. :)

Okay, now I've got the willies. I'm going to go hug my dog or something.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Interesting. Wonder why angels weren't on her list?

Cate Masters said...

I had the chills a few times that day, Linda!

Hm, maybe angels fall out of the paranormal realm? She seems to focus on that. She may research angels, I'd have to check her web site. She's incredibly busy!
