Merry meet all,
I’m reading a book by Zac Bagans ( no relation to Bilbo Baggins lol). The book is titled I am Haunted by Zac Bagans. He is an amazing dedicated paranormal investigator. A paranormal investigator is just that- it is defined online as this: “Ghost hunting is the process of investigating locations that are reported to be haunted by ghosts. Typically, a ghost-hunting team will attempt to collect evidence supporting the existence of paranormal activity.”
I love his book which I am almost finished reading. The whole book skips along at a brisk pace, leaving you either scared, in tears or with baited breath. I love the stories he recounts of his amazing paranormal or not so paranormal experiences such as encountering true spirits/ ghosts/ demons or odd people and genuine experiences with ghosts affecting electrical equipment. Anyone with an even slight interest in the paranormal (like me, lol) should read this book. He shares many stories but also real advice and wisdom gleaned from years of experience in his field. I have been shocked, moved to tears or genuinely scared by the anecdotes. He is truly dedicated and knowledgeable.
Each chapter is only a few pages long. That is what keeps me reading. The anecdotes pack an emotional punch. His voice comes through in the stories he shares which are sometimes hair raising or emotional. The book is honest and yet leaves you almost a believer in ghosts. I know for myself ghosts exist and I find myself relating to his experiences. I wish I could meet him, share coffee and swap true ghost stories and sit in a tavern. I know what it is like as I myself have had glimpses of the astral realm and not all of them ‘pleasant’. He is the real thing and not trying to toot his own horn. I want to buy this book. I am reading the copy from the library. I would love to add this book to my shelf.
He shares his experiences as an investigator about people, life and death. He does speak with wisdom and you can’t help but feel the honesty in each of his stories. He can be cocky and ready for a fight or quiet and wanting to hide from the world- that last one I understand only too well. Speaking of monsters, he writes about a time he may have connected with Satan himself- this book is not for the faint of heart. I was at Tim Hortons when I had a nasty unexplained experience there. I didn’t see a demon offer me coffee. I just like to think the employee was possessed. I ordered and paid for a coffee and a cream cheese bagel. I paid and got my bag. I should have looked in the bag. I limped to the library and opened my bag once at a desk. I received a muffin so I returned and showed them. Here is the good part: I was told I had never ordered a coffee (which was in my hand) or a bagel. What the hey? They found no record of the transaction on their tills. ???? I was just there and they even remembered seeing me there. Ok so I start arguing with them. Yes I was there, yes I did order a bagel- not the muffin, and I set the coffee down and never even got a refund. As I am staring at her, bewildered, I think I see something hovering over her, dark and casting a shadow over her. That is why I think that something possessed that woman to torture me. It sure explains a lot about the way I was treated. I got more money from my Mom for a lunch but forgot the cream and sugar and had to limp around more. Then it was this and that. Oh that afternoon it took me a lot to calm down. I saw black I was so angry.
These stories are the type of stories in the book I’m reading. I like to think hell is on earth – up here, not in the core of the earth. Yup that is my belief but it is not carved in stone. You may argue or agree with me, but the minute I am out in society, every single day, I go through hell. I suffer because of peoples’ ignorance and sheer selfishness and – I could go on. I hope you all don’t have to go through what I or Zac Bagans has to endure.
