Interesting recent discovery! About 25 or so years ago (around 1995 I think) a woman came into the music store I was running at the time, situated in central Auckland’s cool and buzzing Karangahape Road. She had heard through word of mouth by mutual friends or musical acquaintances, that I was interested in the paranormal… Continue reading A doll with a message
It is never easy losing a loved one. Grief hits us all in different ways, but for most of us the concept of continuing life without that person and achieving milestones in your life that they will not be there to witness if often the hardest pill to swallow. None of us would be alone… Continue reading Happy Birthday – Love, Grandma.
When my daughter turned one, we moved into a deceased estate, complete with a wildly overgrown garden, multiple extensions and the smell of a year of emptiness. Despite that, the house felt warm and welcoming and we continued to smile and say that we couldn’t believe how lucky we were to have such an amazing… Continue reading The ghost with no name
I received a message from a concerned person that was in possession of a mirror; a mirror with something of a dark history that she needed to be rid of. An unassuming and quite cheaply made mirror that had come from The Warehouse, a New Zealand homewares dept store and had been used for many… Continue reading Haunted Mirror
I thought I’d share the story of this little girl that sits in my ‘’haunted items’’ room. I was hoping to return her back to her homeland of Scotland during a recent trip over, donating her to another researcher /haunted item collector over there, where she could hopefully be at peace being back in the… Continue reading Angry homesick doll yearns for the Highlands

The principle goals of this project were to at first try our luck at ascertaining whether there may or not be some form of residual remnant, or possible paranormal activity present in any of the other houses and buildings with the village; and if so, attempt to either experience or observe first hand, document or… Continue reading Howick Historical Village: Solo Overnight Sessions – Mark’s night in Johnson’s Cottage (Toy Room)
The team returned to the Howick Historical village for yet again a series of solo investigations – with a slight twist. Previously we had all taken turns (on different nights) doing a full, solo investigation on the largest of the houses “Puhinui house” and had all come away with more questions than answers afterwards and… Continue reading Howick Historical Village: Solo Overnight Sessions – Sam’s night in the old Church.
The George and Dragon was built in 1720 on the site of an older inn dating back to the 14th century. It has one of the most unusual inn signs in England, a large oval sign depicting St George slaying the dragon, a sign which is probably as old as the inn itself. It is… Continue reading The George & Dragon pub – West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
Why do ghost hunters look for ghosts at night with the lights off? Obviously it’s more dramatic, but is there some specific reason or investigative rationale behind it? —S. Pedroncelli A: Nearly every ghost-themed “reality” TV show and film has one or more scenes in which the investigators walk around a darkened place, usually at… Continue reading Ghost Hunters in the Dark
Session Four: 30th April 2016 – Solo Overnight vigil by Lisa Ward. I thought it was a nice old house, very representative of the 1800s. I loved the Veranda. I went in treating it as an ordinary ‘un-haunted’ house and thought that I would just see if anything happened to convince me otherwise. The house was… Continue reading Project Puhinui: Session Four – Puhinui House, Howick Historical Village
I think it’s best to begin answering this question with my honest understanding and general opinions of both Mediums and Psychics. I believe a Medium is someone whom strictly believes that they can communicate with the spirits of the deceased, often acting as a bridge to which the dead can speak to the living through… Continue reading Sam Collier: My opinions on mediums & psychics being utilised within paranormal research & investigations
The little village of Borley is located in a very pretty but sparsely populated area of North Essex and just a few miles away from the Suffolk border where I grew up.

The team investigates the Puhoi Centennial Hall, nestled in the quiet riverside town of Puhoi. Is the spirit of local Arthur Dun watching over the hall?
Introduction Recently, in the Australasian Ufologist, I had an article published titled “Waking paralysed:abduction or sleep paralysis?” In this article I pointed out that, to me, quite a few abduction accounts seemed more like attacks of sleep paralysis accompanied by hypnagogic/hypnopompic imagery, than anything extraordinary. While undertaking the research for that article, I started… Continue reading PARALYSIS AND THE UFO PHENOMENON
This month we are going to stray a bit from my typical “practical information” articles, and instead, delve into two of my favorite topics: EVP and theoretical physics. Electronic Voice Phenomena – EVP. With the 2005 release of the movie entitled ‘White Noise’ starring Michael Keaton, the general public has increasingly become more interested in… Continue reading EVP – An Alternative Theory

Borley Rectory was a Victorian mansion that gained fame as “the most haunted house in England”. Built in 1862 to house the rector of the parish of Borley, Essex and his family, it was badly damaged by fire in 1939 and demolished in 1944. The large Gothic-style rectory in the village of Borley had been… Continue reading The Ghost Nun of Borley Rectory
One track of the Wendy Connors Audio History of UFOlogy Series “CE IV” CD offers a 19-minute recording of an interview with Maureen Puddy about a July 25, 1972 “abduction” in Frankston, Victoria, Australia. In this case, the word ‘abduction’ is a misnomer identifying a wrongfulness to an event beyond the experiencer’s understanding. The interview… Continue reading The Maureen Puddy Case
In 1952, contactee George Adamski took this photograph of a ‘Venusian’ Scout Craft. The close up shows more detail of a UFO than ever before seen. Adamski, who claimed to have been in direct contact with an alien being, took the photo through a telescope after one such contact. Does the photo show a vehicle… Continue reading George Adamski and the Venusians
Annabelle is not your run-of-the-mill haunted doll, but rather a tool for a much a darker purpose. Dark entities can be quite cunning and manipulative in getting what they want, and in the case of Annabelle, two nursing students came very close to losing a friend… A Birthday Gift In the 1970’s a terrible event… Continue reading Annabelle the Haunted Doll
Sleep In introducing the subject of sleep paralysis, it will first be necessary to outline a few facts about sleep itself. Considering that we all sleep, it is surprising that the average UFO researcher knows so little about the subject. Everyone on Earth sleeps. All close to 6 billion of us. Lack of sleep can… Continue reading Waking Paralysed: Abduction or sleep paralysis?
As mentioned in my review of Flying Saucers from Outer Space (1953) by Donald E. Keyhoe, at a Pentagon press conference in 1952 General John Samford stated about UFOs “. . . there has been no pattern that reveals anything remotely like purpose or remotely like consistency that we can in any way associate with… Continue reading Flying Saucers and The Nine Pattern
The books of UK reporter Arthur Shuttlewood (1920-1996) provide insights on the topic of unidentified flying objects and human contact with people from beyond our earthly realm, a subject considered in previous blog articles about Orfeo Angelucci, Truman Bethurum and Daniel Fry, among others. Shuttlewood’s first book The Warminster Mystery (1967) chronicles momentous experiences as… Continue reading The Warminster Mystery
