My Best EVP To Date!
EVP, or Electronic Voice Phenomenon, is the capturing of discarnate voices utilizing audio equipment. Skeptics often say that such recordings are nothing more than white noise or on-site contamination. In many cases they’re right. However, for some reason, I am deeply lucky to receive many quality EVP’s that are not a result of contamination or white noise. This past weekend we had our Washington State Ghost Society meeting and I shared one of these EVP’s with the group. It’s one of the best I’ve had since starting this work back in 2012.
So let me set up the conditions of the recording. If you look at the attached photo, you will see that I am standing in front of the location where the EVP occurred. The property was long and narrow with overgrown grass and unusually uneven ground. Each side of the property was lined with tall evergreens which provided an outstanding noise barrier. The neighborhood was very quiet, the home itself abandoned. We were there at the owner’s request, but due to a mold issue, we could only work outside.
There were three of us on the team – Dave and Leah as well as myself. While Dave and Leah were located at the front of the house, I started to walk behind the home and towards the back of the property. I wanted to assess how large it was. My recorders were already on. I always wear two, and I always turn them on almost immediately upon arriving on-site. I’ve found that some great EVP’s happen even before we officially start the investigation, as well as after we’re complete.
As I am walking alone, about half way back into the property, I vividly recall saying to myself how I needed to be cautious and watch my step. The grass was long, the bugs were awful, and with each step I was afraid I would fall into an uneven hole. Now, I did not say this out loud. This was a silent thought!
As happens with EVP’s, we never know what we’ve captured on the recording until we come home and analyze the audio. It’s a tedious and time-consuming process, but one which greatly fascinates me. So, as I sat down to start listening to my audio, I could clearly hear the careful crunching of my feet as I walked through the grass. Then all of a sudden, there it was! A voice so loud I couldn’t ignore it. In my excitement I yelled for my husband to come listen.
The voice was saying, in this sing-song fashion, “light and nimble on your feet.” And it was captured on both recorders; each just as loud.
Now, I was alone when this happened, and based on the volume of the voice, someone would have had to have been standing right next to me in order to produce those words. But again, I was alone. The only other two people on-site were not only a good 20 – 30 yards away, they were also in front of the home while I was in the back.
The other fascinating point is that the EVP voice knew what I was doing and thinking! Here I was trying to watch my step, when someone says to me “light and nimble on your feet.” This indicates a direct intelligence and awareness of my actions, along with a kind warning.
Now, I know some people will say that I created the voice in an effort for some form of fame or recognition, and quite frankly I understand that mindset because I am often just as skeptical of the recordings of others. The best I can do is say that in no way was this voice created by me. I would never falsify information for any personal gain. That’s just not who I am, and those who know me know this about me. I can’t make skeptics believe it, nor do I care to try, but for those who choose to believe, this EVP was a clear indication of a discarnate being communicating with me and being fully aware of my presence.
Throughout my journey to understand everything that happened to me back in 2008, I have been both a believer and a doubter. I can not deny that I do mediumship and psychic work and that something “unusual” is going on. I am always searching to better understand what is real and valid experience/spirit and what is not. When such a quality EVP occurs and the content is a direct reflection of conscious intelligence, I find myself incapable of denying that somewhere out there lies a realm which exists. And even if we can’t see it, we can touch it!
