Dear Ghostvillagers,

I've been thinking about spirit communication a lot lately. It's something people have been doing, or at least attempting to do, for about as long as humans have been walking upright. For some, the concept is as simple as a prayer to their creator; for others, the process can be intricate and involve devices like spirit boards, dowsing rods, spell casting, seances, Tarot cards, and the list can go on and on. 

The devices people use to communicate hold even more interest for me. I don't think pieces of metal, a board game, or a deck of playing cards are inherently psychic, spiritual, or any more supernatural than my coffee mug, but they do put the user(s) of these devices into a mindset for spirit communication. The person using the device is the medium, the device itself is just a channel. 

Some people who are psychically intuitive view these devices as unnecessary -- like using crutches when you're perfectly capable of walking. But some people claim to be able to speak to spirits, and even more importantly, they obtain real responses. Knocking on the door of the spirit world is one thing, but it's quite another when we perceive the spirit world to knock back.

We've started a new "Spirit Communication" section in our message boards to explore this very topic further. We'd love to hear about your experiences. There are many new developments in the works for New content and features are arriving almost daily -- the more you get involved, the bigger and better we get. Enjoy the rest of the newsletter below.

Supernaturally yours,

Who's Who in the Town Square?
Get to know some of your fellow Ghostvillagers.


What is your name?
Chloe Chandler

How old are you?

Where are you from?
Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Have you ever seen a ghost?
Unfortunately no... or at least nothing that wasn't conjured up by an overactive imagination.

What first got you interested in ghosts and the supernatural?
The stories, I guess. I was fascinated and thrilled by ghost stories and anything strange and scary from about the age of five.

Do you think as we get older we lose some ability to perceive the supernatural?
Perceive them, yes -- I don't think adults being less sensitive than children has anything to do with their senses. They just don't want to know -- they have so many other things to be doing or to think about.
