Ghosts; Do They Hide in the Light?

By Maria Anna van Driel

A ghostly apparition walking through the wall, an odd shaped craft hovering in the sky or strong ripples on the surface of a lake indicating that there might be a sea monster swimming by… even though many people have seen and reported these rare but remarkable events, they do not have an explanation for what they have witnessed.

Are those, in the dark hiding, eerie shadows, truly disembodied humans who are lost or, is this an effect of Sleep Paralysis. 

Is walking through a forest at night only scary because we are breathing in these, released by the trees, small amounts of methane gas while the pineal gland in your brain is detecting the ultra– and infra sound-waves are bouncing off on the trees after it has released by your own body? Or is there something malevolent hiding behind the shrubs, waiting for you to become its prey?!

Hum, that is indeed a fascinating question. So, let’s imagine that we are standing in a forest with trees all around us. Odd as it might sound but these trees have the ability of releasing a kind of resonance what can ‘communicate’ with your personal frequencies which can turn into that infamous fear frequency sending shivers down your spine.

Did you know that trees have the capability of releasing CH4, aka methane gas? A gas some say is one of the sources of today’s global warming.

Not only do trees poop Methane, they also contain liquid crystal in which a piezo-electrical effect can be observed when encountering an ambience of bright light or a heat (electrical) source. Both of these source is what you are carrying when walking a dark forest…your flash light and your body what is now electrical charged by means of the mind is entering a fight-or-flight state.  

The small amounts of the odorless methane gas released by the trees around you might be just enough for you to see creepy plasma clouds forming containing photo-generated electrons which are brought together by a piezoelectric effect, dancing on the surface of natural piezoelectric (semi)conductors.

In neuroscience (or neurobiology) it is well known that the pineal gland becomes active, or is waking up so to speak, once its host is in a dark environment meaning, you being active during those hours of the day in where UV-light is not present in large amounts. Walking this darkness means that you can’t rely on your eyesight anymore what converts your body into a biological radar devise emitting sound-waves in order not to bump into anything or, to survive any dangerous situations heading your direction with high speed.

These ultra- and infra sound-waves your body is emitting, are bouncing off on the objects in your surrounding and, sometimes, have a behavior of returning back to you as a relativistic microwave and creating this chilling feeling of static electricity

You, now acting as a human radar devise, breathing small amounts of odorless methane gas as well as sensing the vibrations of the trees and returning microwaves, which are communicating with your brain, have resulted in a blood-curdling form of vivid hallucinations while it is being combined with a personal fear frequency based on creepy stories you once have read or watched via You Tube or Netflix.

Suddenly you are right in the middle of a spine-chilling situation what seems to be written by Alfred Hitchcock himself! This effect in sensing ‘things’ which seem to have no clear and visible source is based on inaudible to the ear sound-waves and chemical reactions and is one of the two ingredients of nature creating ghostly apparitions in a dark forest.

A second ingredient to create this blood-curdling effect falls in the range of an unnatural source. By means of an ambiance of LED light the liquid crystals inside the trees are triggered and create an effect of being elastic. Aka the expansion and shrinking of crystals what is giving them the ability to record and play vague but hearable sound effects and even create visible images.

Like a laser directed to a LP made of wood, LED-light can function similar to a laser, faint but not impossible.

Imagine walking through this dark forest while carrying a torch with LED-light … you will instantly understand which kind of effects this bright light source can create without your awareness.  Being focused on, for instance, a paranormal investigation and not on the, seemingly, logical reactions when certain elements are being brought together, a creepy surrounding containing real ghostly effects has being created unintentional which can scare the hell out of you when it is combined with your personal fears.

I am wondering, what will be the effect seen, or sensed, when we are we adding an extra element to this natural event…a stressed cellular memory?

Does the Human Brain Serves as the Conduit for the Flow of Information from Alternate Realities?

We often wonder whether or not we are alone in this universe.  Pondering of the question, “If life arose relatively quickly on Earth, could it then be common in the universe?”

It is indeed promising,  hearing scientists say that some bodies in the Solar System have the potential for an environment in which extraterrestrial life can exist, particularly those with possible subsurface oceans.  

But what are the basic requirements for life? Could life have arisen outside the solar system? Perhaps thermodynamically, photosynthesis based on stellar radiation may be the optimal source of energy for extraterrestrial life to rise.

Many scientists search for bio-signatures within the Solar System by studying planetary surfaces and examining meteorites.  Some even claim to have identified evidence that microbial life has existed on Mars.   Still, the exact origin of life remains an unfathomable mystery, however this does not mean that it will always remains so.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”… and this week I am speaking with clairvoyant medium, UFO researcher and co-host of the radio show “Twin Souls”, Philip Kinsella…about, how likely is the evolution of intelligent life outside the borders of our cosmic freezer?

Living with High Sensitivity in a Harsh and Demanding World

With Dutch Holistic therapist and dimensional researcher, Mary Willemsen

‘Flabbergasted’… that is how many high sensitive people react when watching people squeezing themselves into the most craziest positions while, for instance, pressing their fingers tightly to their Temple area.  Being at a young age, you might think that these people are trying to reduce a headache or maybe their hand-eye coordination is not communicating that well in that moment.  Not to mention the eerie look in their eyes what seems to come straight from the series “The Addams family”.   Odd as it might sound but these people want you to read their minds because you are a highly sensitive person.  

Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, is a term coined by psychologist Elaine Aron. According to Aron’s theory, HSPs are a subset of the population who are high in a personality trait known as ‘sensory-processing sensitivity’, or SPS.  Those with high levels of SPS display increased emotional sensitivity, stronger reactivity to both external and internal stimuli—pain, hunger, light, and noise—and have a complex inner life.

Indeed, being a highly sensitive person can come with many challenges. But to label ones sensitivity as a disorder….?

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”… and this week I am speaking with  Mary Willemsen who is a holistic therapist and dimensional researcher from the Netherlands … about what it means to be a high sensitive person and…how to survive today’s harsh world.  Do you truly have to grow steel elbows?

Stress, Dissociation and Depression; Do They Trigger the Brain to Create Vivid Paranormal Phenomenon?

California State University’s Prof of psychology, Matthew J. Sharps weighs in

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of Prof. Matthew J. Sharps

‘What is real and what is not?’ A ghostly apparition gliding the grounds of a cemetery, the, during a traditional ritual, summoned deities or the car in the garage?  Odd as it may sound on the latter, the truth is, we have no clue what this mathematical Matrix around us, truly contains.

As far as it is known, our brain has yet not learned how to place a concept into the frame of classical reality….how to convert the geometric design(s) of nature herself, into an understandable language.

So, like water is choosing the easiest way to descent, the brain seems automatically grabbing to what it is that is the most logical translation of what it ‘thinks’ it is perceiving and, in a most creative manner,  it starts filling in the blanks of whatever it might be that is dwelling in a dark forest or crossing the skies with a speed that breaks all laws of physics.

What is the purpose for us to fill in these blanks with Mother nature’s monsters, UFO’s or a conspiracy theory?  Is it a neuron-psychological defense mechanism?  Where lies the origin of this stimulus what is triggering the brain in believing its own creations and…what would happen if people would perceive classical reality for what it is by nature?

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet” and this week I am speaking with Matthew Sharps who is a Professor of psychology at the California State University, Fresno… about how modern and traditional religion, and the rituals within, are merged with the paranormal believes.

Are Extraterrestrials Visiting Our Planet and…Where Are They?!

With author and UFO researcher, Philip Mantle

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of UFO-researcher Philip Mantle.

The UFO subject as we know it came to the public’s attention on June 24th, 1947 when private pilot Kenneth Arnold, flying over the Cascade Mountains in the USA, witnessed a formation of objects that he could not identify.  Speaking later to a journalist regarding the encounter, Arnold was asked how this formation of objects moved through the air, and his response was: “Like a skipping saucer across a pond.”  From that moment on, the coined phrase ‘Flying Saucer’ was born.”

This is what author writes in his book, ‘INTRODUCING UFOs – A Young Person’s Guide’.  Philip Mantle, the former Director of Investigations for the British UFO Research Association and the MUFON Representative for England, has selected several UFO cases, and their histories from the 1940’s onwards, and placed them underneath a magnifying glass for you to explore.  But these documentations written in his book are not meant to be in-depth, but rather to illustrate the case in as brief a way as possible, without missing the most notable points.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”…. and this week I am speaking with the founder of ‘Flying Disk Press’ Philip Mantle, who is a long-standing UFO researcher and author from West Yorkshire, UK,…. about… why are we still in the dark when it comes to extraterrestrial life visiting our planet and which of their advanced technologies has already applied to Earthly technologies.

What is dwelling beyond our Peripheral Vision

With the Co-founder and Team Medium of Paranormal Research York, Kevin Spindloe

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of lightworker Kevin Spindloe

Science, so many state, has been a great destroyer of myth and superstition, but over time scientists have created new black boxes, aka a photo or film camera, which we are filling with our ghostly imaginations.

What also may surprise you is that scientific icons like Newton, Boyle, Edison and Einstein, and many others of similar standing, took reports of those phenomena occurring beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding, quite seriously.

Theology, philosophy, mythology and even physics when looking at Euclidean geometry, are offering surprising insights in the worlds of those spirits who are generally causing a ruckus in a household. But just because a candle falls off your mantel does not mean you have a clumsy demon in the house. It doesn’t even necessarily mean you have a poltergeist who has a crush on your new sneakers.

Still, even though many believe in the existence of ghosts, spirits, demons and angles, there is still a lot of confusion over what actually is lurking in these dim and elusive realms.

Some say, is a spirit, a ghost or even a demon that is throwing things around in your home. Others say it is only the manifestation of a person’s psychokinetic energy, or PK activity, that is acting out.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”.     This week I am welcoming back the Co-founder and Team Medium of Paranormal Research York from the United Kingdom Kevin Spindloe and talk with him about …  what it is that is dwelling beyond our peripheral vision.

An extra- or intra-dimensional entity like that of a poltergeist, or an alien, after all?

Does the Complex Symbolism in our Dreams Expose Our Darker Side?

With best-selling author and world-renowned dream expert, Jason M. DeBord

Listen to Jason M. DeBord’s podcast via You Tube or, via Stage 32

Analytical psychology is the name Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, gave to his new “empirical science” of the psyche to distinguish it from Freud’s psychoanalytic theories as their seven year collaboration on psychoanalysis was drawing to an end between 1912 and 1913.

In Jungian psychology, the shadow (also known as id, shadow aspect, or shadow archetype) is either an unconscious aspect of the personality that the conscious ego does not identify as itself; or the entirety of the unconscious.

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to (part 1) of the TNT-Podcast of Jason M. DeBord. Or, download both part 1 &2 of his podcast below.

But even though these shadowy figures (malevolent or not) may appear in dreams and visions in various forms and sometimes overwhelms a person’s actions; for example, when the conscious mind is shocked, confused, or paralyzed by indecision  …Carl Jung stated the shadow to be the unknown dark side of the personality.

J.M. DeBord, aka “RadOwl,” is the author of three books about dreams including the best selling Dream Interpretation Dictionary. He explains this complex subject simply and easily and empowers readers to discover their innate abilities to know the meaning and significance of their dreams.

Jung also writes that if these shadowy projections remain hidden, “the projection-making factor then has a free hand and can realize its object—if it has one—or bring about some other situation characteristic of its power.” These projections insulate and harm individuals by acting as a constantly thickening veil of illusion between the ego and the real world.

For many, these scary shadows are disembodied humans who are lost; refusing to go toward the light.

For others, these shadowy figures are just a result of sleep paralysis.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet” and this week I am speaking with world-renowned dream expert and best-selling author of  4 books,  Jason M. DeBord. What do dreams reveal us about ourselves and…do they hold some clues about the future?

How to Work With Your Abilities as a Psychic Medium

With internationally-known professional Psychic Medium Tracy Farquhar

No one can deny that computers and electronics have revolutionized life on this planet and many serious researchers are claiming that some of this gadgetry can be useful in a quite unexpected way: to contact the dead … or at least to allow the dead to contact us.

Of course we are scared of them and even if we don’t believe in them, subconsciously we cannot ignore them.  But is our encounter with ghosts, or the dead,  only till the horror flicks or stories about them?  No!  Since ages we have been fascinated about the hereafter, what happens to us after we die and… in communicating with those who already crossed over just to know a little bit more about ‘their’ world.

Séances, Ouija Boards, Tarot cards…  attempts to communicate with the dead have been documented back to early human history and became quite popular in the 19th-century United States and the United Kingdom.

But if any of the methods for communicating with the dead work, why don’t we receive more convincing information from the other side?  Perhaps we are not allowed to get better information and… for whatever reason… perhaps the possibility of a life after death is supposed to remain a mystery.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”,   and this week I am speaking with internationally-known,  professional psychic medium Tracy Farquhar about what it  means to be a psychic medium in the 21st century.

Sleep Disorders and the Paranormal; Is There a Scientific Connection?

With Clinical Psychologist Dr. Brian Sharpless

Download the audio file (MP3) and listen to the podcast of Dr. Brian Sharpless

Brian A. Sharpless is a licensed psychologist and author with interests in unusual psychological disorders, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and the history and philosophy of clinical psychology.

The ghost in the machine”, many people have heard this term at least one time in their life. It was a paper which was written by Coventry University lecturer Vic Tandy and published in April 1998 by the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research.

Working alone in the lab one night, Tandy suddenly gained the feeling he was being watched. He claimed a dark, shadowy figure appeared in the corner of his vision. When Tandy turned to face this shadowy figure…it vanished.

To many, these shadowy figures are better known as the Shadow People.

They are being skests as a malevolent and creepy phenomenon and have being reported by witnesses as human-like shaped dark shadows having ill intentions standing alongside your bed…watching you.   

Even these eerie phenomena’s have being reported for decades, it is not your mind simply playing tricks on you.  There might be a more simpler and scientific explanation for things like ghosts, demonic hauntings and…shadow people.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”,   and this week I am speaking with clinical psychologist, Professor Brian Sharpless about  the most creepiest sleep disorders, what treatments are there and…how deeply these disorders are woven into the paranormal.

Are those things you see in the darkness more than just a shadow?

The Netherlands and the Netherworld are More Closely Connected than You May Think!

With Dutch Paranormal Investigator, Veronique Lamers

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the podcast of Veronique Lamers

Nothing beats a good ghost story on Halloween, and our planet is chock full of them: UFO sightings in Transylvania, murders on luxury cruise ships, and spirits wandering the halls of British castles. No matter where you’re traveling, you’re sure to find some sort of haunted site, as well as a ghost tour to go along with it.

This also in the Netherlands

The Netherlands and the netherworld are more closely connected than you may think!   Dutch shores… fields and streets are riddled with myths and whispers of the deceased who might still be roaming there.

Even though the Witte Wieven, or “devious wise women” in older Dutch, are among the more famous classic ghosts in Dutch folklore, there is also the story of the Zeedijk ghost.

A tanner’s daughter from Zeedijk named Dina was dating a young sailor, to the envy of her sister Helena. One day, when he was out sailing, the sisters fought viciously. In a flurry of anger, Helena pushed Dina down the basement stairs, beat her to death, and threw the hatch shut. She got to marry the sailor instead of Dina, but Helena spent her years wracked with guilt.

She finally admitted to the murder on her deathbed, and the sailor turned away from her in disgust. She died miserable and alone. That very night, residents of the Zeedijk were aroused by chilling wails and raging howls. Lone wanderers in Zeedijk still encounter the lonely ghost of Helena from time to time.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”,   and this week I am speaking with Dutch paranormal researcher Veronique Lamers… about which secrets still lies beyond the limits of our understanding regarding to the hereafter.
