What is an Instrumental transcommunication medium? A few years ago I would have thought that was some type of oil based paint additive or some weird medical device, but now that I have been tagged the term many times over, I fully embrace this title with fervor.
Instrumental trans-communication or ITC means using any form of technology such as a camera, computer, t.v. or in my case, digital recorder; to capture any paranormal activities.
The first to study this type of thing dates way back to Boston in 1862, when a simple man who worked in engraving came to photograph himself in his off time and discovered an “extra” face in his photos. Many had several faces, and upon investigating these faces, he discovered they were dead relatives from his clients that perhaps needed to get a message across to their loved ones that they were ok.
Many ITC mediums followed like John Meyers, Ted Serios and Hans Holzer, all of whom were quite famous in capturing astonishing pictures of the deceased. In some cases they were even able to produce ectoplasmic messages written with in the picture.
One of the more well-known ITC are electronic voice phenomenon or EVPS. It is the capturing of disembodied voices on a recorder, telephone, C.B or radio.
Attention to EVPS started long ago when Thomas Edison was thought to capture a disembodied voice from out of the ethereal plane. Edison’s friends were perplexed and astonished when he later told them that he one day hoped to create the telephone for the dead. Unfortunately he had died before he finished it and his plans were never found and debunkers later stated it was only heresy. Years later, a man named Frank made a device called Frank’s Box where a radio on AM is set on continuous scan for spirits to utilize the white noise to imprint their voices and send messages to the living. This works great for some skeptics, the announcer’s voice on the radio seemed to dirty the recordings and made it seem less authentic.
That is why an EVP from a recorder is so amazing. It is unmistakable when the accounted for are sitting quietly and a disembodied voice says, “I miss you Jake! It’s Dad!”
Another pioneer for EVP is Friedrich Jurgenson. Fredrich was a swedish film director and portrait painter. In 1959 when he was engrossed in his favorite hobby: tape recording bird song, he shockingly came across a voice saying “Bird voices in the night.”
He also heard his mother speaking to him telling him he was being watched. He instantly recognized his dead mothers voice and became excited with the prospect of his accidentally found, new endeavor and spent the next twenty-eight years of his life capturing hundreds of spirit voices.
Every one can participate in and capture any one of the numerous forms of ITC. What makes you an ITC medium is that you capture them nearly EVERY time you try that form of ITC.
What makes a person graduate to mediumship is there will be the medium sitting with another person holding a recorder, sitting right next to each other and upon play-back the medium will get voices whereas the other person gets a blank recording. This has happened to me over the past year and a half. I will have my digital recorder on and get many voices coming through, desperate to be listened to. Some wonder how that is possible.
I feel the reason is simple, I am set up to listen and I have practiced this over many years. It seems to be an earned gift, which is why I think ANYONE can achieve this level of ITC if they work long and hard at it. Usually people get a taste, maybe a few photos of an apparition, shadow entity, or pieces of glowing spirit energy. Maybe they may even get a few EVPS, but the next time they record they will get nothing significant on their recorder. For them they go back to their normal lives and forget about the world of ITC.
I never forget, in fact a close friend of mine constantly begs for me to get my head out of the grave yard as I am constantly recording and listening to ghosts. I have even developed deep relationships with some of them and on occasion ask them move things and turn on lights.
The reason I bring all of this up, is I have hundreds upon hundreds of EVPS that are personal to me or to co-workers or to our tour attendees. Messages that I know MUST be important as these spirits as they seem very excited to get them out to the rightful owner.
That is why it is so incredibly important for ALL of our tour Attendees to read our future blogs and look for your message. I now have been getting not only voices of your dearly departed, but some pictures and names or writings on the pictures. These spirits put in a lot of time and energy trying to get through to us and the very least we can do is pay attention to them.
I hope everyone is having a great autumn! My heart goes out to all those living and all those that have passed!
A special shout out to DAVE, a resident spirit that finally got the courage to move into the light after a lengthy session with a great gal named Laura, who had a deceased friend named B.J. that we were told by other spirits, had promised to accompany Dave to the other side. The other spirits had said Dave was well-loved there and protected the workers and tour attendees diligently on every tour.
Dave, you are GREATLY missed and I hope you are having all the beer and pizza you want, finished off with a banana split!
Much Love and Light,
