A great phrase by Emily Dickinson goes:

“Bereavement in their death to feel Whom We have never seen.

A Vital Kinsmanship import Our Soul and theirs — between.”


Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically captured sounds that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings, sounds that often fall into the paranormal realm.

For example, telephone calls from the deceased loved ones is also an aspect of this kind of paranormal phenomenon and it is not as uncommon as you might think. Many normal, rational people have reported receiving telephone call from deceased relatives, friends, or even from someone not directly known by the recipient in life. The communication is usually simple and brief, and is most often a one-time occurrence.

Portable digital voice recorders represent part of the current technology used by EVP investigators. A number of paranormal explanations have been suggested for the origin of EVP. Common explanations include living humans “imprinting” thoughts directly onto an electronic medium through psychokinesis.

Or, perhaps EVP communication really does comes from discarnate entities such as spirits, nature energies or Gaia elementals. The possibility that beings from other dimensions are sending us messages (communications that randomly get through to 3-d Earth) is also part of a greater theory regarding EVP’s.

An excerpt from Wikipedia reads as follows: “investigation of EVP is the subject of hundreds of Internet message boards, regional, and national groups. According to paranormal investigator John Zaffis, ‘There’s been a boom in ghost hunting ever since the Internet took off.’ Investigators, equipped with electronic gear such as EMF meters, video cameras, and audio recorders, scour reportedly haunted venues, trying to uncover visual and audio evidence of hauntings.”

These days, many of us use portable recording devices in all kinds of ways, and sometimes we inadvertently capture ghostly phenomena, even when that is not our intention.

A truly disconcerting EVP was recently reported by a British newspaper. It occurred after a proud mother video recorded her eight-week-old baby boy, happily playing in his crib. But, later that evening, when the family watched the video, there was an unexpected, frightening “voice-over.” While the video played, the tiny tot could be seen smiling and staring at the screen; then, without warning, a terrifying groan could be heard; immediately afterward, a growly voice clearly says, “I’M ALIVE”. (Cue the Twilight Zone theme music.)


Michael Jackson

Last year,  A CNN film crew got quite a surprise during a report that aired from NeverLand Ranch, former home to the late Michael Jackson. At one point, the CNN camera was aimed down a long hallway; out of the ethers, a shadowy figure appeared to cross the hall at the far end of the corridor. Many of his fans believed the specter to be the ghost of the rock star . . . one who died so suddenly and tragically. Clearly visible, something was there.


“Now about those ghosts. I’m sure they’re here and I’m not half so alarmed at meeting up with any of them as I am at having to meet the live nuts I have to see every day. ” Bess Truman
