Dear Ghostvillagers,

I know what you're thinking... you're thinking, "Jeff, you have no idea what I'm thinking." And we'd both be right... sort of. Confused? Don't be, we'll get through this together. My name is Jeff Belanger, and I'm just not a psychic. I don't know what the future holds, but I do get my own gut instincts and intuitions. I have hypotheses and hunches on what lies ahead in my own future, and I'm usually pretty close in the short term. Maybe we're all just a little sensitive to these things.

This month on Ghostvillage we're going to explore psychics, mediums, and those feelings we get that make no logical sense, but we act on them anyway. It's a journalistic journey we're going to take. We'll ask the hard questions like: Why don't psychics win the lottery every night? Then we'll ask even harder follow-up questions like: If psychics are above using their abilities for personal gain like winning the lottery, why don't they tell me the winning numbers?

Our world has always had its psychics and mediums. Throughout history they have had labels like: oracle, prophet, medicine man, witch, shaman, and Carnac the Magnificent. No matter the label, we have always needed those who could offer us insight and a vicarious glimpse into the realm of what lies beyond death. We need these bridges on many levels, and this month we're going to explore psychic reading, using mediums as part of ghost investigations, and delve into our own hunches and impressions. We'll take a walk on the psychic side. To get us started on the discussion, I took a look at the psychic movement; where it came from and where it's going.

It's also mid-August, which means the busy season is coming soon. This past month I had the pleasure to meet the great folks who attended the 3rd Annual Eastern Regional Paranormal Conference in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and of course there are many other great conferences coming up in the next few months which offer a great opportunity to meet some fellow Ghostvillagers and paranormal enthusiasts. We also have a great new development to announce this month: is starting to syndicate some of our content. That means if you have a Web site, blog, or page on services like MySpace, you can add content from our site that will be automatically updated for you. Let the world know about the supernatural news and events happening in the realm of paranormal research.

I'd also like to extend a big thank-you to those who picked up my new book, Our Haunted Lives. I appreciate all of the kind words, emails, and great feedback. Enjoy the rest of the newsletter below.

Supernaturally yours,

Jeff Belanger
Mayor of

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

>>Redhead<< - member since March 14, 2004

What is your name?
Dana Burt. My first name is pronounced more like "Donna."

How old are you?
48. Yikes, already?

Where do you live?
La Crosse, Wisconsin. Itís in a valley of the Mississippi River, and very beautiful with a rich history.

What do you do for a living?
Right now I am a homemaker, but looking for a part-time job.

What got you interested in the supernatural?
I grew up in a haunted house. My sister told me that within a couple of weeks of moving into the house, I, age two, was talking and singing to/with an imaginary friend I called Mr. Ghost. You could hear things being moved in the attic late at night, see smoke wisps, objects disappearing and reappearing. When I was about twelve, I woke at dawn and looked out my window to see a man hanging in a tree on our property line, which was about a quarter of a mile from the house. Gradually this figure was gone from my sight. When I was about 18, I would see a man in my closet if the door was left open. He seemed very sad and lonely to me. I have always accepted the paranormal as normal because I grew up with it. I was around 10 when it dawned on me that not everyone has this stuff going on in their house.

Have you ever used your dowsing rods to try and find spirit energy?
I only recently purchased dowsing rods, and am still in the stage of learning how to use them. I am planning to go out to a local cemetery with a reputation to test this soon.

What's in your CD player right now?
The Band/Greatest Hits, The Eagles/Greatest Hits, Soundtrack to Because of Winn Dixie, Wissing & King/Live at the Brew Note (local musicians), and Fleetwood Mac/Greatest Hits.
