Interview with Dale from The Mentor Ohio Paranormal Research Society (MOPRS)

In this blog entry, Paranormal Corner is interviewing Dale of MOPRS.
  • Since you have a paranormal research/investigation team. Do you do this work because you actually believe in the paranormal or, are you one who needs more evidence of the paranormal and that is what you are searching for?
I am a huge believer in the paranormal I got into this work because I was convinced.. When I was a little bit younger in my early 20s a friend of mine was doing paranormal research before I even started. 

He made a bet with me he would take me to a location that was haunted. If we found any evidence of paranormal activity I would have to buy him dinner. I was in the tunnel all by myself alone in the middle of nowhere, the tunnel was dark and damp its walls slowly collapsing. In that tunnel I became a believer. I had a digital recorder with me that I had borrowed from him he explained to me that he had got EVP's from this particular Place. Putting my hands in the air I said yeah right. He told me walked to the end of the tunnel asking questions. And then after about 30 min. Walk back...I did so asking questions and trying to keep an open mind. Then 20 min. into the tunnel I heard someone whisper something near my ear. When I turn around with a flashlight that I had I saw no one. When I looked at the end of the tunnel I could clearly see my friend. So I know it wasn't him. I questioned him where he was when I entered the tunnel and when I got to the and he was clearly seen on camera he was in a different area completely where I was and there were no neighbors in that area the closest neighbor was approximately 15 miles away.

So in the middle of nowhere I heard something... We went back on his recorder and one of the questions I had asked is there anyone in this tunnel with me.. We got an EVP with the simple response of yes... My next question was.. Why are you in this tunnel?... Then I said in a joking manner like I really believe in you... The response was... We believe in you... And then the third question that I was able to gather EVP from.. Was.. Do you know my name?... And the response was yes we do.. And about 20 seconds later the name Dale class a EVP was heard... This is how I started my paranormal journey and why I have a belief that we are not alone... And we never happen our loved ones continue to communicate with us... As well as others who just want their voices heard..

  • Have you ever had a paranormal experience yourself before you got into paranormal research ? If so, can you tell our readers exactly what it was that happened?
Yes actually I actually had him many experiences growing up as a kid but I didn't consider them paranormal nature.. I always thought that I saw things heard things and wish just the type of person that I misinterpreted things..when I was 10 I saw something... And even to this day I have no explanation for.. Your readers can read about it on my new blog I started

  • As a team do you all have to agree on what is evidence and what is not and is there ever any disagreement on evidence?
Sure there are disagreements on what EVP's have said but this is normal.. You can't be a good investigator/researcher without having a disagreement on what is being said.. Each persons ears hear something different.. This is normal via the human condition.. We are not perfect.. We are human and when we leave we will continue to be human...although we may not agree on everything.. We always try to have a mutual understanding.. An understanding that okay this EVP may not be this it may be this but we still have to mark it as possibly this or possibly that...

  • I am one who believes that in time, science will prove the paranormal. Do you agree with that or, do you think otherwise?
I agree with you I think it's just a matter of time before science catches up and everything that we're doing.. Will one day be categorized as a scientific study... It may not happen before my lifetime.. But I believe that science will recognize.. That what we do.. Has some sort of scientific merit.. And the research that we have done will be our future... By studying what is happening.. It might be possible one day be able to talk to a loved one directly.. Wouldn't it be amazing.. That in the future you can pick up a telephone like a cell phone today... Dial a certain number.. Or maybe a certain frequency.. And hear uncle Frank.. Say hello all.. And be able to talk to him for 20 min. 30 min. at a time... I shudder to think what the future holds.. But I'm sure of one thing the future looks very bright.. And the more teams work with each other that future grows.. I am also a firm believer in paranormal unity.. It can be done.. With that being said.. I'm part of something that is trying to do that it's called the pros family.. I truly believe in my heart this is the future.. Of paranormal research unity teams working as one.. And everyone having an open mind.

  • Have you ever encountered a demon in your work?
When I was a little younger I experienced something that I believe was ..demonic. But I can't say for might've been an angry spirit trying to tell me to go away.. But I guess I'll never know until I experience think like it again.. Sadly I have not since then... But I continue with an open mind that one day it may happen and if it does I am willing... And able
  • Can you tell us about the strangest or scary investigation you have done to date?
There's a place here in my hometown that I truly believe is its most haunted location.. I have been to this location probably about 50 times and every single time I go I get EVP's.. The strange part about this location.. at night the location seems to some we go from a peaceful and serenity location... To a dark and mysterious vortex..we have a lot EVP's from this place.. 

And your readers are welcome to listen to the videos on YouTube that state mentor's most haunted location.. Are from that particular case... And every time I go I am always excited to know exactly what i got.. I've invited a few teams to the location all of them had said the same thing... The location is truly haunted... The strangest thing that actually happen at this location.. Was I was alone all by myself scouting the location ahead of time and I picked up the scream.. That screen can be heard on the you tube channel.. In fact I'm going to be redoing the video for it.. That screen was anywhere between 20 and 30 seconds long... And I believe it was a scream from the people that died on the land... I heard the scream but didn't hear the very beginning of it I'll he heard the second part... And it is marked in that EVP with me saying I think I just heard a scream just now... Very odd and what I perceived to be a scream and up being a bloodcurdling scream... To this day I still get chills listening to that EVP...

  • For all the folks that do not believe in life after death or the paranormal..... What would you tell them to maybe convince them of paranormal/life after death ?

What would I tell to all of those who do not believe in the paranormal?.. The answer is very simple come with me on a case... And within eight hours I will make you a believer... For those who you can't come with me I case.. Contact your local paranormal group.. And asked to be a guest.. Let the dead wake you... As I know for fact that they can

Abide With Me: The Power of Hymns

Abide With Me, 
A Hymn by Henry Francis Lyte 1847 and music by William Henry Monk 1861

I am now going to share with you one of my strongest experiences, and a testimony to the power of hymns in my own life. This is not the only time I felt the miracle powers of hymns, but is defiantly one of the most inspiring and most powerful ones that I have experienced. This happened in Honolulu, Hawaii in June 2005, after months of struggling with emphysema, pneumonia and at this time still unknown to me sepsis, this Sunday was especially struggling and I was only able to take a few steps and speak no more than two-three words before gasping for air, still I felt a strong urge to partake of in church, including the hymns.

As I started to sing "Abide With Me" I felt like a power filled me and I was able to sing fully and with more strength than I could even have imagined, as the verses were sung I felt more empowered and a total feeling of well being replaced the struggle of breath. The beauty of the song bared with me and I felt so filled with joy.

I finished the song to the end, and the guy next to me turned over and whispered, that was truly divine, I have never heard anyone sing like that before, his eyes filled with tears as he gave me a hug, not only was the singing of the hymn helping me but it touched those around me. And I was able to talk and felt unencumbered for the next few hours of church, though everything felt easier even when in struggle, the next week I underwent treatment at the hospital and within days I felt a lot better.

"Abide With Me" was actually written and first set to music by Henry Francis Lyte while he lay dying from tuberculosis; he survived only a further three weeks after its completion in 1847. I believe he was there with me giving me the strength to sing his hymn to the fullest.

The second experience I am sharing with you happened a few years later, my grandmother at the age of 94, was on her death bed and my family were there gathered around her singing hymns, as we sang we all could feel it lift her spirit. The song of the hymn helped her drift peacefully over and as she did she filled us with the glory of her joy of again seeing us all clearly and hear us with absolute clarity again for the first time in decades.

With this I know there are true power in hymns, the power to bring peace at heart, the power to bring healing to the sick and needy, and the power to let the holy spirit dwell in our heart, to let us know the joy that God feel when we cherish the gospel by song.

Psychic Abilities: Psychic Navigation

I have on multiple occasions experienced what I would have to describe as Psychic Navigation, in many ways this seems similar to dowsing as it has been described to me by others, I have never done dowsing other than for water which I know works and felt similar to me to when I use my psychic navigation.

Now before you assume there is no such thing, think about it this way, have you ever been lost and then felt like a prominence or gut feeling what direction to go, and then done so. This is how I the best can describe my own experience but on a grander scale.

Some of the earliest accounts of this was as a child I found myself never feeling lost even the thickest of forests, when in doubt I would close my eyes and focus on where was my destination and then feel where the strongest pull of what I will describe as the energies within draw me. As I grew older I found I could use the same to find lost objects at home, runaway animals and later even people, both lost and just "randomly" pick out whom I wanted to run into on the street.

Back a few years, I had a chance to put my ability to a grand test, I was visiting Trondheim, which is one of the largest cities in Norway, in area it covers the size of Sidney, Australia but in population is only a couple of hundred thousands. I had never been to Trondheim before and after I was done with the days work in the conference I was attending, I wanted to see if I could find one of the most holy sites of the old Roman Catholic Church, the Nidaros Cathedral which was during the middle ages considered the 4th most important holy pilgrimage site after Jerusalem, Rome, and a site in Southern Spain. I closed my eyes focused on the cathedral and the energies that the centuries of pilgrimage to the site would cause, and instantly knew where to head, walked a few blocks and there it was the most magnificent medieval cathedral of Norway, filled with awe the sight touched me to tears, and I said a silent prayer before I entered.

Another example I would like to share happened in Oslo, Norway, I was with my aunt at the time, and after letting her be in the lead we became totally lost, after 3 hours of walking we seemed no where near the 15 minutes walking destination we were supposed to get to. I then closed my eyes focused for a few second and firmly convinced my aunt what direction we were to head, we walked for 20 minutes, and then after my Aunts pleads we stopped to ask a cab to take us the the destination, since it was already getting dark and Oslo is not considered a very safe place to be wandering around in dark side alleys. He stared at us, and said really? I could do that but why don't you just turn around to the left and complete the last 20 yards on your own.
