You've just laid down for the night when suddenly doors slam and the curtains shift. The lights begin to flicker and a white mist forms in front of you. You shut your eyes and keep muttering, "ghosts aren't real." But then you open your eyes and realize that "harmless" mist has shifted into the form of a man, staring intensely at you, as he floats above your bed.
What causes ghostly experiences? Are ghosts real? Why do certain people report numerous ghostly encounters and others none?
For centuries these questions have intrigued, puzzled, and bedeviled science, skeptics, and even believers. Based on cutting-edge research and new theories, The Ghost Studies provides insight into some of life's greatest mysteries.
This fascinating book is far more than a compilation of ghost stories. The Ghost Studies provides scientific explanations for paranormal occurrences, including:
New and exciting scientific theories that explain apparitions, hauntings, and communications from the dead.
The latest research on the role of energy and electricity in hauntings.
The role that emotions, bioenergetics, and the environment play in supernatural phenomena.
New research into why some individuals are more prone to ghostly encounters.
The Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal Experiences
Haunted Medina County, Ohio
The dreadful howls of coyotes are common in the shadows surrounding Medina County, but perhaps something else, something entirely more fearsome, lurks in the night.
In 1906, the specter now known as the Woman in Black so terrified residents in Medina Square that a curfew was imposed. Restless spirits, rattling chains, and nefarious deeds are rumored to have occurred in a farmhouse in Sharon Township. Legend has it that about 100 years ago a witch preyed on the residents of Liverpool Township, and the ghost of a teenage boy is said to haunt the men's restroom at Plum Creek Park in Brunswick Hills.
Join parapsychologist Brandon Massullo as he sheds light on the ghostly lore surrounding Medina County's restaurants, libraries, freeways, parks, and more.
