Greetings everyone! I am Francis Mortimer, The Ghost Collector, I live in Portugal, and although I have been interested in this branch of performance, it took me a long time to "convert" to the dark side. I look forward to make friends in this wonderful place Dan created for us, to learn and to share what I know. For those interested, I have a youtube vídeo of my first performance of dark theatre (as I like to call bizarre magic). It is nothing special, really, lots of flaws in pacing, and I was very nervous. Besides, it is in Portuguese, so, probably not your cup of tea. However, if you wish to watch it, please let me know and I will send you the link. Other than that, I also have a little PDF I wrote for free distribution in our little community, about pendulum use, my aproach to it. Again, it is nothing special, just a little intro to pendulum use. If anyone is interested, please let me know, and I will send it to you. All the best!
Greetings everyone! I was just thinking. If anyone in here has had a potencially supernatural experience, I would very much like to know. After all, I´m The Ghost Collector, and there are many types of ghosts, from actual sightings, to traumatic experiences (which can haunt you more than a real ghost). If you don´t want to post publically, you can contact me by private message. Rest assured, your experiences will be treated with the utmost respect and discretion, and I will not disclose your identity if I ever tell your story. I will not try to pick your story apart, as I believe so many would, but treat it as something interesting, to be respected and possibly by inspired by. I have my own experiences, and have close people who have also had strange experiences. One of those is of a child who saw a grandparent in his\her bedroom, who was long deceased, and who the child had never met, being later identified by the child, in a picture. I look forward to your stories. Just one thing. Please don´t tell me stories you made up, and try to make me believe in them. If the story is made up, just state it as such. That is all I ask, the same respect I show you. All the best!
Although I am insensitive to the paranormal, many, many of my friends and aquaintances in my town have had multiple ghost encounters and still have them today. drumheller, Alberta, Canada is the MOST ACTIVELY haunted town in Alberta!
How are you? It is very nice to see you here. Thank you for posting. I am not sensitive to paranormal phenomena either, as far as I know. But I have had at least one personal experience, which might be difficult to explain. I like old abandoned buildings. One day I took a photograph of one, and upon seeing it in detail, what appears to be a face was looking through one of the windows. No body, just what seems to be a face. I was quite hesitant to post that story here, actually. I don´t even know why. By the way, thank you so very much for your interview on the Mystic Menagerie Podcast. It was really good! I loved it! Regarding the encounters your friends and aquaintances had, if you would like to elaborate on that, I would be very interested in reading it. Publicly, in here, or by private message, whatever way you wish. All the best!
Hi Luc! How are you? I did contact a famous debunker, several years ago, when the photo was taken, and he also guessed at it being pareidolia, but he didn´t even want to look at the picture, he simply shot his guess to the air. Some more information about it. The photo was taken from the outside of the abandoned house, and there was no one in the building across the road who could cast a reflection into the second floor window of the abandoned house, where the strange image is. The image was not there when I took the photo and was only when zooming it later on the computer that I could see it. Pareidolia would also have difficulties in explaining why every single person to whom I showed the photo sees the supposed face. I could consider sharing it with you, for your own satisfaction, but you wouldn´t be able to share it with others, and you would have to keep your conclusions to yourself. Why? Because this thread is not about explaining phenomena, but simply about collecting real stories. I don´t know what it is in the photograph, and I would not bet on it being a ghost, but it is a pleasant mystery, and one which I wish to maintain as such. It is like the salesman who does not believe in what he sells. He will very likely never be as good as the one who believes in what he sells. It contributes to my work, because it is a real experience, and because this way I know what it is like to have such an experience, therefore having better chances to create such an experience for others. Puzzles feed our ego. Stories feed our soul, and my work is about stories and experiences, not puzzles. If you still want to see the picture, please let me know. All the best!
Hello everyone! Come on, don´t be shy! Please let me know of your true accounts. If you haven´t had any, but know someone who claims to have had, please let them know I am open to know about their story and put it into my arquive. I will treat their account with respect and I will not try to pick their story apart and explain it. I am a collector of stories, not a debunker. If I ever tell their story, unless they request to be named, I will keep them anonymous, to protect their privacy. You can contact me by private message to discuss it further, if you wish. Then, I will let you know of an E-mail adress to where the accounts can be sent. All the best!
