A Spirit Scientist at Heart

It’s an exciting time on this planet. Energies are changing quickly. I feel how the veil is thinning. We’re having more and more phenomena in the circles and in the phenomena experiments.

A group of us are experimenting with physical phenomena. This is a phase of Mediumship that’s quite unique and unusual. You’re getting physical, audible, visual phenomena that are either recorded or able to be seen through cameras. Using night vision cameras you’re able to see the actual lights and the intensity of them.

Our intention is to create this energy with spirit acting in a partnership. We’re building between the spirit world and the physical world. We’re inviting those “chemists” from the spirit world, the scientists from the spirit world to create visual or audible phenomena. This has been a very exciting to work with this once again.

When you’re working with physical phenomena you’re working with the energy of the earth. You’re working with your own energy. You’re working with the partnership from the spirit world and their energies.

They’re able to work in a particular way through the group energies, building on that over a period of time. It may be months or years. Then you begin to get little signs that these phenomena are coming through into the room. Some of those phenomena come in the form of bright lights and they’re recorded by the camera.

Some come in the form of raps. The “raps” are audible sounds and they’re made without anything visual that’s in the room. In other words, they’re just coming out of the clear air. They’re just happening. Maybe against a wooden surface or on the wall you can hear them.

We always ask each other “Did you do that, or did you do that? Did you make that sound?”

With all the “no’s” we say “Well, that’s got to be spirit because it’s none of us.”

We have crystals on a particular table and we notice some of these “raps” have been generated through the crystals. Maybe this adds to the increased energy that spirit’s able to use from those crystals.

I’m a scientist at heart. I guess you call it a “spirit scientist.” I like to see where these sounds are coming from and how they’re being made. I actually look at what other natural causes that this could be coming from. This is how I can know whether that’s spirit or natural, known cause around the room or in the room or coming from outdoors.

We always question “Was that a sound from, did somebody else make that sound?” I know the lights are definitely from spirit because the room is completely dark. It’s pitch black. That’s for a reason. We’re able to see the lights in the dark just like you’re able to see the stars in the night sky or the Sun in the daytime.

You have to have certain conditions for these lights to appear. If I were to be trying to see them in the daylight lit room, I wouldn’t be seeing them because they would be just like the daylight.

I want to scientifically work with this from my point of view and from the group’s point of view as scientists. “Is this due to a natural cause that can be explained away or is this something from the spirit?”

I know that this is communication from other dimensions. I know that it’s possible.

I do want to prove it. I have a passion, an enthusiasm to work with this just as long as it takes.

I started my search in the 70’s to 80’s saying that “I know that phenomena has to be real. Even if there’s something out there that may be counterfeit and someone exposes that, I know there had to be a real thing before there could be a counterfeit.”

I’m out there to show the real deal; the real spirit evidence that there are light dimensions that want to communicate with us from the spirit, from those light dimensions.

The way to do it is to setup a laboratory and put the experiment there and find the people who are as passionate and enthusiastic as I am to sit for long duration to actually achieve this (and with no immediate expectation). They need to be patient enough that they can wait. The scientists can manipulate that energy with your energy in a way that brings about these physical phenomena.

Trance Medium: A unique occupation in Hilton Head

For over 35 years, Dwanna Paul says she “has gone into an altered state of consciousness to access the world of spirit or other like dimensions.” But, with an otherworldly talent like hers, her résumé isn’t limited to the number of years she’s worked professionally. “As a child, I was very sensitive and saw spirits and thought everyone else did too,” Paul said. “Then as a teenager, I was the one people dared to go to the graveyard.”

Dwanna Paul in Hiton HeadAs an adult, the supernatural continues to fascinate Paul. “I find hauntings, clearings, and blessings so interesting—so much fun,” she said. Mediumship training for her was a gradual, exploratory process. In her 20s, she studied new age practices such as massage, holistic healing, Reiki and polarity. She also “took classes on how to focus her mind and was educated by spirit,” she said.

Now, Paul has a team of spirits to assist her and her clients. These guides have names, personalities and jobs to do, too. They include her Native American guide, Two Bear, and the joyful crossover entity she calls Joy. On the phone or in person, she channels them, and with their help, Paul finds “great happiness in seeing spiritual healing take place, especially when it is a parent who has lost a child.” Taking an introspective pause, Paul added, “I watched the emotional transformation of a mom who lost her son 14 years ago. His spirit described the landscape on the other side and how he watched and wanted to help his family members.” Paul was able to provide an invaluable service that day—closure for a grieving parent.

“The more I see, the more it fuels my passion. If you are not working with your passion, you are missing out on the joys of your life,” said Paul, who also believes we all have guides we should listen to. “We all get signals around us such as feelings or sensations, and we need to take note of them.”

At the Haunted Catfish Plantation

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on RedditDigg thisShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Tom and Melissa Baker founded the Catfish Plantation in 1984 after tiring of the corporate world and wanting to settle down in a small quiet town. They had a dream and that dream came true when they stumbled across this vine-covered house at 814 Water St. There was something magical in this old dilapidated house.

The 1895 Victorian structure had been the home of three previous restaurants. Having been left vacant for several years, the location was the worst possible location for a business, but the Bakers were drawn to this house.

Shortly after opening for business, strange and unexplained events began happening. One morning Melissa found clean coffee cups stacked inside the large tea urn that had been mysteriously placed on the floor. Several weeks later a fresh pot of coffee was awaiting her arrival. She had the only key to the restaurant.

Employees and customers began having unexplained experiences. One of the fry cooks experienced baskets levitating over the deep fryer; another employee leaving one night saw a blue light glowing from the window. One night, one waitress’s husband came late to pick her up and on their way back to their car a young woman wearing what looked like a wedding dress appeared in the front window and then simply disappeared.

After having parapsychologist Dwanna Paul and her team of experts visit the restaurant, it was determined that the restaurant was indeed haunted by three possible spirits, Caroline, Will and Elizabeth. All had died in the house and had lived at the location at different times. They each carry their own characteristics. Caroline is known to throw things, especially in the kitchen area. She does not like anyone in her house as she still feels she is the woman of the house.

Will, who was a farmer, likes to flirt with the ladies by putting his hand on their knee, resulting in some ladies feeling cold spots on their knee. He has also been known to move salt and pepper shakers around on tables that have been set for customers. Elizabeth, who was murdered on her wedding day by a jealous ex-lover, will periodically appear in the front window in her wedding dress.

As a result of the many occurrences that have happened at the Catfish Plantation, many news media had contacted the Bakers to do stories on the restaurant. Some of the publicity has included local TV news affiliates, including ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX.

The restaurant has been on national television shows; “A Current Affair,” “Ocurrio Asi” (a Spanish speaking international show aired in Mexico, South America and Spain), “Good Morning Texas,” and the 2003 fall season premier of “King of the Hill.” In 2006, Texas Highways magazine’s Peoples Choice Award voted Catfish Plantation one of the top ten favorite catfish restaurants in the state of Texas.

Visit the Catfish Plantation at 814 Water Street in Waxahachie, Texas  (Tel: 972-937-9468) for the best in Cajun-spiced seafood and a haunted atmosphere you won’t soon forget.

Apports Between Unseen Worlds

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on RedditDigg thisShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

A medium is a channel.

A medium stands between the unseen worlds of spirit and the physical world and becomes that conduit of energy. It’s sort of like a radio. We’re on that frequency of spirit where we attune to the spirit world and bring through evidential information that would identity a spirit loved one, or a spirit of light, or one that comes through, such as a healer from the spirit world. We call them spirit doctors who come into the circles and visit and offer their healing energy to the group.

In the classes that I have, the Sixth Sense Development Classes, they come into the class with curiosity first of all and it helps them to understand that there is something beyond the third dimensional level, (life after death, if you want to call it that). And it helps them to reason in their mind that death is a natural process and it’s just a step going beyond the physical into the other unseen dimensions of life. As they learn in the classes, they learn to connect and be that medium, or psychic, or they use it in their everyday life to guide them. They work with their spirit team, they have exercises that help them to identify and to validate what they’re receiving with one another. The classes are real high energy and students are really excited about learning.

Phenomena circles are considered to be sort of that area that some mediums don’t work with. In the phenomena circles, we’re attempting to create enough energy in the circle to bring about phenomena such as materialization of spirit, light orbs, apportation (which is gifts from spirit). We are using our energies as a conduit. With spirit’s energy mixed with that they’re able to create phenomena on the physical side of life, where it’s very visible, or you can feel it or sense it.

Apports have additional meaning beyond the physical qualities of the objects that appear. In the past we’ve had crystals that were apported with the dirt or the clay that they came from still on the crystals. We’ve had two coins that were sent through from spirit. They were Liberty Half Dollars. They were on two people’s birth years. It was very exciting to have a Liberty Half Dollar come into the circle. And we’ve had a couple of quarters. It seems to be that spirit can find coins anywhere because they don’t take the coins from anyone. They don’t hoist them out of any bank or anything like that. There’s a lot of lost coins so they’re able to apport that into the phenomena circles. When you hear of this, it’s usually pennies, quarters, nickels – it’s quite often not silver half dollars, so that was interesting.

They’re like “beyond the normal”, so they’re supernormal, they’re out of the ordinary. What we’re seeing is actually at a different vibratory rate. It’s all around us, the lines of energy, the masses of energy are all there and they’re unseen. It’s much like the electricity in the air. If you flip a switch on and you have electricity, the lights come on, or the TV comes on. If you see a thunderstorm and see the lightning, the lightning already exists but the because of the fact that it has a conduit, or something represent that electricity, you’re able to see it or feel it or hear it. Like a clap of thunder, it’s there. That’s the energy, the electricity that exists all around us. It’s just that our senses are not always aligned for that. By working through classes or if you have some natural ability to work with mediumship you open that sixth sense and beyond to interact with those unseen energies. It’s always helpful in your life. This is a way of actually reaching out to the spiritual self in a much deeper way.

Testimonials by clients of Trance Medium Dwanna Paul

“I just wanted to say thank you for the experience yesterday. I came into this completely skeptical because my brain tends to function that way. But hearing the things you said about my mom and my dogs just blew me away. It was a very emotional experience for me and I still can’t quite wrap my head around it. But I wanted to say thank you.”


“I was one of nine women who were exploring Mediumship with Dwanna Paul, a Trance Medium who had been working in this field for over 40 years. It was our last workshop in a series and the topic that night was on Physical Phenomena. She asked us if anyone had experienced Table Tapping before and I was one who hadn’t.

“The idea is to call the energy from the Spirit world to join us while we sat at a round plastic table. When the energy is present then you would hear a tapping sound and in some cases the table would move or rock.

“The participants sit around the table in a completely darkened room with no ambient light of any kind, and place their hands lightly on the surface of the table, adding no pressure. The first group went and I like the others heard what sounded like tapping about ten minutes after we had started, and then later like the table had sprouted legs and started walking around.

“I found myself to be a bit scared and excited at the same time and also skeptical as well. When my turn came I was directed to the table and sat down, placing my hands lightly on the table. A few minutes later it was like the table became possessed of energy and started moving and rocking.

“I started screaming and trying to move back from it and it literally lifted right over me and went straight up to the ceiling and started tapping on the ceiling. I now was holding on for dear life as the energy felt like it was pulling me off my feet. As far as I could tell in the dark that was surrounding me, the other three women were holding on as well.

“At one point when it came down again I threw my exhausted body over it mainly to keep it from moving and what I felt underneath me felt like a car would feel if you were lying on top of the hood while it was idling. At one point it almost seemed like it would move again even with me on top of it. That shook me to my core and made me see in the most clear and direct way that we are all connected to the energy of the universes and that it is impersonal as well.

“Wow is all I can say and for anyone who has read this far I now know for sure that the Truth is inside every one of us and We Are Not Alone! What we are capable of when we get outside our finite small minded thinking is absolutely mind blowing and I mean that literally.

“What I know about reality changed when an inert plastic table danced on the ceiling over my head! Be open to the impossible being possible!”

L. H.

“During a Circle of Lights, you had said that mom kept singing “Hark the Herald Angles Sing.” While she did enjoy the holidays and collected angels….it still wasn’t quite resonating with me. I took that bit of information home and filed it away in my mind. I woke up this past Sunday with a start and in almost a panic. I had this overwhelming sense that there was SOMETHING I needed to figure out…about mom’s funeral, what we had her dressed in, SOMETHING. It was  an overwhelming feeling of urgency to figure out what I was trying to remember! All of a sudden, it dawned on me that the night of mom’s visitation, I had placed a tiny metal box (no bigger than a thimble) decorated like a Christmas package in mom’s hands to stay with her. Inside of it were three tiny metal angels. The gift card that came with the tiny box told the story of the famous song “Hark the Herald Angels Sing!” I am certain mom was trying to convey through you that she knew I had placed that little box of angels in her hands as one last Christmas present!! Thank you so much for this amazing memory!!!”

T. J.

“My family and I just wanted to thank you for an absolutely fantastic reading yesterday. We listened to it again today and were struck by how very accurately you read Becky’s mom. I know it brought solace to her as she has grieved her passing deeply.

“I hope you feel so good about your calling and how much comfort and peace you bring to so many loved ones who have lost family members and friends. Our best to you this spring and for the rest the year– we will keep your telephone number on speed dial.”


“There were some things that you picked up with me, and shared with me, and I really appreciate you for doing so. Just to clarify, Alice was/is GREAT Grandmother like you said. This was quite the experience for me and my daughters, and the impression that you’ve left is one of accuracy, profound intellect, warmth, and love.”
R. J.

“I just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. So much of the session was accurate, no way you could have known ANY of that. I’m not sure how your readings usually go, but for me, it was an amazing experience.”

“That was the best reading I have ever had. I liked everything about it. It was everything I asked for from my guides. Anyhow I just loved it!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!”

“The message from my grandmother was that I needed to get the word out about what I’m doing.”

“It was such a long-awaited session … you just can’t know how much it meant.”

“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful circle last week. I’m looking forward to coming back to circle again. I have really missed it and found that it is something that I need.”

“I was fortunate enough to meet you and experience your magnificent abilities … since that day, a new avenue of life has sprung forth. Thank you … for everything you have shown me.”

“The private circle you held for my family was outstanding. The fact that you gave us the names of my mother, grandmother, uncle, and even my sister’s mother-in-law (all now passed on), plus messages from each of them that concerned things only they would have known, was truly amazing. It was proof they must be around us more than we ever know!”

“There are a lot of things you said yesterday that are now making sense. “Cat” duh, he was talking about Sammie his cat that is all alone. It was right when you were talking about his stepsister… I have some peace that I desperately wanted to have.”

“I enjoyed the circle so much last night and appreciate your gifts.”

“I would like to thank you for my reading last Thursday for my birthday… I was grateful that my mom came thru as well as the spirit that now lives with us…”

Leave a message and I’ll get in touch.
