Summoning Circle gone BAD

My two friends and I were up at my cabin in northern Minnesota. At that time we had been dabbling with Ouija boards before but this time we did not have one with us so we bought some candles and looked up how to create a circle. We each took an element, me: fire, stacy: Earth, and Jennifer: Water. This left out air and spirit, but we thought it was okay at the time. So we continued to light candles and invite anyone who was willing to come talk to us to come and inhabit my body for the night and to use a deck of playing cards as forms of yes or no, Red= yes, Black = no. We got some cool responses from a spirit who called himself Guy. We asked him if he wanted to pass on and he said yes, but he wasn’t going to go without his sister. This is were we got a problem. Us being super naive and young we had asked him if his sister could go with him. He said yes but she would have to be severed from this entity that was evil. Of course then we should have sensed something was not right about his sister…. but we didn’t so we asked her name and started to call her to our little circle. She came alright, along with the other entity. However when we started to try to convince her to move on with her brother this entity took control of my friend Jennifer.

My friend Stacy and I didn’t notice at first until things started going strange… Jennifer started to speak in a different language (not unusual for her since she is a classics major) and we presumed the circle was closed and the spirits left. However I went to the bathrooms and I felt like someone was watching me. I get back and Jennifer is standing up just sort of looking at everything really intensely. That is when Stacy reminded me of the holy water we had brought with us and she suggested that Jennifer was acting strange. So I grabbed the holy water and handed it to Jennifer and said you look like you need a drink of water here have some of mine. She sniffed it then drank some. The instant she swallowed she called me a bitch and lunged at me, she then fell to the ground writhing. I held her down and shouted, “GET OUT, GET OUT OF MY SISTER”! I then proceeded to use whatever energy I had and channeled it into Jennifer and yelled, “GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY SISTER”! She then passed out for like 2 mins and the whole cabin went eerily silent. I looked at Stacy and she was on the couch staring. That night Guy came to me in a dream and said he was going to protect me since I angered that entity, I said no please protect Jennifer. I can handle my own, she needs the protection. Since that night She has been normal and not had any issues with the entity. Sometimes I occasionally feel that presence but I then put up my light shield and tell it to go away. and it does.

Names have been changed to protect identities.

Real Monster Sighting Story, and Echovox recordings

This story happens, perhaps happened a little more than three years ago. (Crap, time flies when you are old)
My Sister was taking her husband to college, down in Weed. When we would pick him up we would have to wait about three hours while he went to class. It was quite boring indeed, waiting in car, outside of a class, and surrounded by naught more than Tall Pine trees. It can make one a bit tired indeed.

Eventually he would come out of the class room and it would finally be time to make the long drive home. I tend to be scared of the interstate , with all them naughty semi-trucks and what not, so we would take the back way home, on the old highway. The first part of the drive is a drive through nice tall pine trees. During this drive my sister speaks up, and for whatever reason she states that she has the feeling that we are going to see something, paranormal. Granted, she can be a bit paranoid, so I dismiss it.

We finally hit the old highway, and drive along. There is a random hill or two. (Okay, I guess hills aren’t random.) As we come up to the first one, my sister blows the car horn, likely to be a ward of sorts. As we went on, I became drowsy, and rested my head against the safety belt; you know the cavity between the seat and door.

I catch a glimpse of something from the corner of my eye. So I raise my head to look at the object, while my sister taps her brakes! There is a figure crossing the road, in a complete nonchalant manner. (Sorry, but that is the word I always remember, since that was near the time I would use Team speak with my friends.) Anyway, the being crosses the highway, as if nothing is coming, and no one can see him nor does he care about anything really. He was maybe seven feet tall, perhaps a bit taller, and cloaked in black, seemingly. It also seemed like there was a 1920’s style black hat on his head. But the thing that makes it so weird is that his eyes shined bright and yellow, similar to how Mothman’s glow red.

I asked my sister if she saw it. She says she did. She said that she hit the brakes and things. She sped home, and we didn’t really talk about it until we pulled into Walmart, and seen my dad. She described to him the same thing that I had seen.

Creepy as hell.

That leaves the mp3 I am going to attach. I don’t know which format is best for video editors or whatever, I haven’t really used them.

Anyway, I never got real results with my Echovox, or so I thought. So, I decided to look into how Steve Huff uses his, and used his settings. The first one I did was a little rough, but spirits were coming in by the end of it. What I have attached it is the 2nd session my sister and I did with his setup.

I have it slowed down by 20%, but I can grab the original if you want it to not be slowed down, email me at for it.

And, I just realized that the upload function is for images, onto dropbox!

Looks like I remember bits of both, so I will link both. There is a third, but its kinda boring, kuz I did nothing but read the bible.

This is the original first. Excuse the sound of me smoking, I wasn’t expecting that many results.

And at 20% reduction … d.mp3?dl=0

And now for the one I started talking about, before I realized both are important-ish.


20% reduction. … d.mp3?dl=0

And yeah. Feel free to crop out things as needed, but please do not alter it, ie adding, special effects, etc. Please also give proper credit if used ^^

This is Christopher Houle, Chris really. My youtube handle is Xerasful, but that is silly to say. Someone stole Xeras from me! xD

Xeras, btw is pronounced, ZER-iss.

1988 Easter, my first paranormal encounter

My first experience/recollection with the paranormal was back in 1988 Easter when I was just 6 years old. This took place in Sheboygan, Wisconsin early afternoon during a family get together for the holiday at my grandparents home.

We all had just arrived back from church services and had setup for an egg hunt for all the kids. My grandparents backyard was an old unintended corn field that was shared with the neighbors to their back, right, and left no fences were up separating the properties. A few of us, my cousins and I, rushed to the middle of the field to find the more valuable eggs and I had found one that had a clue to look back in my grandparents home for the prize. After finding a basket full of eggs I went back to the house to look for the prize. I followed one of my older cousins into the house. He was looking for his own prize but I thought he could help me find mine. There was a room in the house that my grandparents kept as storage that was on the second floor and that’s we’re my prize was, I had asked my cousin if he could help and he did. We headed upstairs and right when we reached the top I felt a very heavy uneasy feeling that made me feel sick. We kept moving and heard someone run up the stairs towards us. We both turned to look and no one was behind us, that spelt second we turned to look and on one was there my cousin ran down the hall towards the room and my reaction was to follow him. We were in the room and ended up in the corner hiding between a dresser and boxes. The door was left open and we can hear a conversation but could not tell what they were saying. It lasted only a few seconds then it stopped, he got up and left me behind because I was to afraid to move. As soon as I heard him run down the stairs I had to get out of there, I ran towards the stairs and felt as if I was being chased. Soon as I got down the stairs a few of my family members were walking inside the house. I told told them what happened and my aunt told me I should not be upstairs alone. I headed outside to tell my mom and my grandma overheard me and told me I should not worry because they are baby angles just playing around.

A few years later after a hand full of experiences at my grandparents home my mom told me everyone has had experiences there at the house but nothing bad has ever happened to anyone. My grandparents reaction to it was that it was baby angles just keeping them company.

Real Story of Annabelle the Doll, the Conjuring

Annabelle the Doll is quite possibly one of the most haunted dolls in the world with a terrifying story. It recently was featured as a subplot in the movie the Conjuring.
In 1970 a mother purchased an antique Raggedy Ann Doll from a hobby store. The doll was a present for her daughter Donna on her birthday. Donna, at the time, was a student in college, preparing to graduate with her nursing degree and resided in a tiny apartment with her roommate Angie (a nurse as well). Pleased with the doll, Donna placed it on her bed as a decoration and didn’t give it a second thought until a few days later. Within that time, both Donna and Angie noticed that there appeared to be something very strange and creepy about the doll. The doll apparently moved on its own, relatively unnoticeable movements at first, like a change in position, but as time passed the movement became more noticeable. Donna and Angie would come home to find the doll in a completely different room from which they had left it. Sometimes the doll would be found crossed legged on the couch with its arms folded, other times it was found upright, standing on its feet, leaning against a chair in the dining room. Several times Donna, placing the doll on the couch before leaving for work, would return home to find the doll back in her room on the bed with the door closed.

One night Donna came home to find the doll had moved again, this time it was on her bed. Donna had come to find that this was typical of the doll but somehow she knew this time it was different, something wasn’t right. A sense of fear came over her when she inspected the doll and saw what looked like blood drops on the back of its hands and its chest. Seemingly, from nowhere, a red liquid had appeared on the doll. Scared and desperate, Donna and Angie decide it was time to seek expert advice.

Not knowing where to turn, they contacted a medium and a séance was held. Donna was then introduced to the spirit of Annabelle Higgins. The medium related the story of Annabelle to both Donna and Angie. Annabelle was a young girl that resided on the property before the apartments were built. She was a young girl of only seven years old when her lifeless body was found in the field upon which the apartment complex now stands. The spirit related to the medium that she felt comfort with Donna and Angie and wanted to stay with them by moving into the doll. Feeling compassion for Annabelle and her story Donna gave her permission to inhibit the doll and stay. They were to soon find out however, that Annabelle was not what she seemed.

Lou was friends with Donna and Angie and had been with them since the day the doll arrived. Lou had never been fond of the doll and on several occasions warned Donna that it was evil and to get rid of it. Donna had a compassionate tie to the doll and not giving much credence to Lou’s feelings, kept it. Donna’s decision, it turns out, was a terrible mistake!

Lou awoke one night from a deep sleep and in panic. Once again he had a recurring bad dream. Only this time, somehow, something seemed different. It was as though he was awake but couldn’t move. He looked around the room but couldn’t discern anything out of the ordinary and then it happened. Looking down toward his feet he saw the doll, Annabelle. It began to slowly glide up his leg, moved over his chest and then stopped. Within seconds the doll was strangling him. Paralyzed and gasping for breath Lou, at the point of asphyxiation, blacked out. Lou awoke the next morning, certain it wasn’t a dream, and Lou was determined to rid himself of that doll and the spirit that possessed it. Lou, however, would have one more terrifying experience with Annabelle.

Preparing for a road trip the next day, Lou and Angie were reading over maps alone in her apartment. The apartment seemed eerily quiet. Suddenly, rustling sounds coming from Donna’s room roused fear that someone had possibly broken into the apartment. Lou, determined to figure out whom or what it was, quietly made his way to the bedroom door. He waited for the noises to stop before entering and turning on the light. The room was empty except for Annabelle, whom was tossed on the floor in the corner. Lou scoured the room for forced entry but nothing was out of place. But as he got close to the doll he got the distinct impression that somebody was behind him. Spinning around he was quick to realize that nobody else was there. Then in flash he found himself grabbing for his chest, doubled over, cut and bleeding. His shirt was stained with blood and upon opening his shirt, there on his chest were what appeared to be 7 distinct claw marks.

ZoZo Ouija Board Demon Ghost Story

So My Ouija Story Begins…

I had been playing the ouija with my friends and we kept getting a spirit with the name ZoZo. I had already heard of it and I was really interested in what it was and what it knew. One night as soon as I grabbed the planchette it had started to move, then it began to move faster and faster, so fast it was incredible! I knew immediately this was not a normal spirit you could feel that ZoZo was actually there unlike any other spirit you may talk to its a true feeling. The demon constantly insisted we get off the board although I took this as no warning I knew to stop the figure 8 motions ahead of time. I didn’t like the feeling that they were giving off. ZoZo was extremely friendly to us for the most part and liked me specifically the most as it claimed it would be always beside me. It also said that it nice to me as scary as that sounds.

So I continued to play Ouija..

More and more until new years eve, one night during an ouija board session it started to spell he was coming. When we asked how, it spelled Satan, it was at this moment I yanked the planchette off and flipped the board over. I still don’t know what it is or anything about it really just that I still itch to play the game that thing it can answer so much it’s amazing it’s so unreal that a force like this actually exists and I don’t care how crazy it may sound. ZoZo is there and if you don’t believe me go buy the board ask for ZoZo. I’m sure it will answer, I know right now if I had someone with enough balls to play I could go have a full-on conversation with it. Now I don’t know how the conversation will end but I can at least I can say I’ve talked to a demon before. As untrue as this sounds there is actually something moving in my house as i typed this. The closet next to my trash can was open, and there were plastic bags on the floor I have no clue what it is or what it wants but this is a good lesson if you don’t believe in ghosts or demons, go buy an ouija board.

Ghosts of the San Remo Hotel

Haunted San Remo Hotel

The city is of San Francisco has numerous hotels that are believed to haunted.  One hotel that is extremely haunted that doesn’t get much attention however is the San Remo.  The haunted San Remo hotel was originally named The “Californian Hotel”. It was built in San Francisco several months after the 1906 earthquake by Bank of America founder A.P. Giannini built . The hotel was originally constructed to service the large immigrant workforce used to rebuild the city, also it served as a primary place of stay for merchant seaman, waterfront workers, poets, journalists and pensioners.

Many people believe that various rooms throughout the hotel are haunted. As history has it room #13, once housed an ex-prostitute who died of age and who whose body wasn’t uncovered until months after her death. Room #22 is also believed to be haunted by a male spirit who once committed suicide by slitting his wrists in hallway bathtub. Most witnesses report seeing various shadow figures, and apparitions of male and female spirits

roaming the halls and rooms. But is the San Remo Hotel Haunted?

Paranormal Investigation

For our paranormal investigation of  the San Remo Hotel in San Francisco, we decided to book several of the haunted rooms and investigate them for paranormal activity. Being that we couldn’t book the whole hotel, we knew we that our EVP sessions would be limited. So we decided to instead focus documenting on our paranormal investigation using photo and video. Our photo session mostly utilized Infrared, and high speed shutter.  Later that night while reviewing the photos that we had captured we were absolutely shocked what had appeared in one of the photos that we had taken.  In one of the photos there is a transparent being that shows up.  The image appears to be that of a male, who is carrying a baby.  Could this the ghost from room #22 who was found dead in the bathtub after committing suicide?  We know for certain that no-one was coming out of the shared bathroom that is located in this hallway.

Besides the hallway we also picked up possible evidence of paranormal activity in room #13.  During our EVP sessions we picked up numerous natural magnetic anomalies, and hear objects move within the room.  The haunted San Remo hotel is an amazing place to stay in SF, that is loaded with paranormal activity.  If you get a chance you should definitely book a room.
