Has Geosat Captured Massive Energy Waves Hitting Earth?

By Dorraine Fisher

Earth and all of humanity is undergoing a massive shift, though many continue to scoff at the idea. But empathic people and other intuitives know there’s something going on. We can feel it. And sometimes these “waves” can be intense. And some people are claiming to see the sun rising in the morning and setting in the evening on the wrong side of the sky. What gives?

I’ve talked about this in previous articles. I never used to take astrological reports too seriously, but in light of everything I can actually feel going on around me that correlates with what many astrologers are saying, I’ve had to at least sit up and take notice.

Vacationing with Ghost
by Sharon Day

I just finished up reading Vacationing with Ghost by Sharon Day. I think, I read this book faster than I have any other book in recent memory, which is a testimony to the author for keeping me interested.

Day writes about her childhood days in her family's summer home. The local folks in the area are an interesting lot and Day does a good job capturing their appearances and personalities.

While reading the book, you get the feeling you are there, feeling the sand on the bottom of your feet, smelling the water or maybe the sounds of an approaching storm. Day does an excellent job at detailing the landscape and describing her feelings.

While this book is essentially a glance into Sharon Day's brushes with the spirit world as a youth growing up, it is also much more. It is a glimpse into her personal and family life that will bring back memories of the readers childhood.  Remember, before the Internet, how kids used their on imaginations and made up games to play. I for one, remember growing up and playing "Cops and Robbers". We would use our bikes and chase each other for hours. Kids don't seem to play like this nowadays, maybe they still should.

Vacationing with Ghost is filled with everything from creepy things to adventure to interesting people to pirate tales and more. Where the book really nails it down though, is the ending. I will not give it way but I can't think of any better way for this book to have ended.

I should also note a couple other things about the book that some might find interesting. Firstly, the book has quite a few pictures which really lends to the story and Secondly, there are some actual home cooking recipes after the ending. If you're like me, the recipes will come in handy.

So in closing, I can say I truly enjoyed the book and enjoyed learning more about Sharon Day and her family. I recommend you give the book a read, especially if you are interested in ghost and have a sense of adventure.

Bigfoot Investigations
The One Huge Way We Can Advance The Research?
By Dorraine Fisher

    Bigfoot research sometimes seems to come to a stalemate.  We learn a lot, and then one day, it all stops for a while. How can we keep the momentum going and keep learning more and more? The answer is simple…and yet complicated at the same time. It involves the inner workings of the human mind.  Yes, that’s right.  Our brains are the problem.  But the good news is they don’t have to be.

   Advances in neuroscience have moved leaps and bounds in the last ten years. Scientists are really beginning to unlock the secrets of the brain that have eluded us for so long. But the more we learn, the more it becomes apparent how flawed our brains really are. Or are they?

The great thing about the human brain is if it knows the problem, it can overcome it.
    But then that brings up the question:  what actually is the problem?

    Arguably, the single greatest flaw in human minds is when we think we know something already, we have a hard time wrapping our mind around any different idea that deviates from that.  It first requires us to come to the conclusion we may have been wrong before, and it requires us to accept a whole new idea that is at first uncomfortable and somewhat unfamiliar.  Scientists are required to do this fairly often, but they also have trouble with it.

    That’s because your human brain automatically looks for something familiar in everything it sees. So if we see something unusual, we have a hard time processing it simply because our brains are designed that way. We try to relate everything we see to something we’ve seen before. And in the world of the paranormal and cryptids, this can be a huge problem. Since we can only speculate much of the time on these subjects, our minds need to be wide open to different possibilities.  Because there are so many…and we need to remember that.

    But how does this relate to bigfoot research?

 We need to change the way we think about everything.  And there are no better people to learn this first than bigfoot researchers.  Since we’re always looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack, we’re more used to rethinking things. But we need to get even better at it.

    I know I’ve said this before, but after years of analogies about ducks, we need to ditch this one:  “If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.”  Probably does not mean definitely.  And if there’s any possibility it’s something else, we need to acknowledge that.

    No one made this point better than paranormal researcher, Sharon Day, author of Ghost Hunting Theories, when she spoke about dog man sightings and how people process what they’ve seen, and how it often sparks hot debate.

    “Oh yes. I would say this,  "We get caught up in Dogman looking like a dog because that's our comparison for something hair covered and having a snout shape to the foreface. We did the same thing with Bigfoot, calling it ape because we had no reference to something hair covered and upright. We need to expand our research, removing the "canine" reference and look to real world explanations for the origins of something that appears like this creature.
    Sharon will be elaborating on that in her blog in the near future. But can you see where this is going? Just because a creature looks like a dog, howls at night, and eats meat, does not mean it’s a canine.  The term “dogman” is nothing more than a description of a creature that resembles a dog. It may actually be something completely different that we have yet to discover.

    The only way to take the research farther than it’s ever gone is to change our own minds. Be prepared to say we might be wrong, and accept the idea of other possibilities.  In essence, don’t believe everything you think.  Because in the world of cryptids, we all might be wrong about a lot of things.

    Also, just because something hasn’t been proved, doesn’t mean it’s impossible.  It might very well be possible…even in a context none of us understands yet.  There are many things we can’t conceive of because we have no experience of them. Does that mean they never happen or don’t exist?  None of us really knows for sure.  All of us would like to be an expert on the subject of Bigfoot, but no one really is. Once we think we have all the answers, we stop looking for any new information and we shut down the conversation and won’t listen to another idea. That is a tragedy for research. Even renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our generation, admits that he’d rather advance his understanding of the universe rather than protect his own ego by holding on to old, outdated ideas.  That’s what we have to keep in mind when we’re trying to unlock any mystery.

    So, there are great opportunities to put this into practice. Bigfoot researchers have the greatest opportunities to become some of the most open minds of our generation; great out-of-the-box thinkers.  It’s imperative…when none of us knows exactly what we’re dealing with.  Being completely objective should be number one on our long list of the skills it takes to find elusive creatures.  And just a small adjustment to our mindset can certainly bring us closer to it.

Bigfoot TV Shows
Do They Help Research Or Hurt It?

Bigfoot TV Shows
Do They Help Research Or Hurt It? Researchers Weigh In
By Dorraine Fisher

With the influx of Bigfoot TV shows in the wake of a lot of breakthroughs in bigfoot research, a lot of researchers complain these shows make a mockery of them and those who are serious about the subject. Especially in light of so much money changing hands sometimes, and so many supposed authorities on the subject suddenly emerging out of the shadows.

"In my opinion, these TV bigfoot shows create a phony set of "experts" and the general public are just unaware that there are no "experts" when it comes to bigfoot. Thomas Marcum, founder of our team said in a recent statement. "Yes, there are some knowledgeable people out there, but please don't believe everything you see on these shows," he said. "They are created mostly for entertainment and profit."

Profit is the one big thing that factors in the most with these complaints about the shows. And it’s the main thing that gets under the skin of those researchers who work quietly in the background on a shoestring budget and don’t get too much credit for what they do and virtually no monetary reward.

And audiences, who are usually far removed from the technological and scientific side of research and everything that really goes on in real investigations can easily be convinced that individuals chosen for these shows are "experts" on the subject. It’s true that a few of them know a great deal, but most were chosen for the purpose of making the shows interesting and keeping people watching.

Another complaint is that the shows are more interested in turning a profit than really finding proof Bigfoot exists. But I’ve often heard, under the table in the dark, that if Bigfoot is proved to exist, then the mystery goes away. And the mystery is what sells it. So if you prove they exist, the money goes away. At least that’s what some fear. Many write books and create documentaries innocently enough in order to inform the public of their findings and tell their stories, but there will always be a few that just want to make money. And that creates the fear in the community that hoaxes are born from this mentality. And it severely cuts into those who do the work to actually prove existence. And that’s what the bigfoot TV shows often represent to them. Fame, money, and no proof or substance.

The shows like Finding Bigfoot tend to focus on footage that has become famous or infamous, and isn’t necessarily accepted by real researchers in the community. So viewers are led to believe all bigfoot researchers must also believe it too. When the truth is none of them agrees on every piece of footage that’s out there. All footage is fully scrutinized and debated endlessly.

And why aren’t the producers of these shows talking to the habituators: those people who claim to live near and work closely with sasquatches in something akin to a "Jane Goodall" type approach to sasquatch research based on proximity and trust building? You’d think those would be the people these shows would be the most curious about in getting some real footage of sasquatches. But maybe there’s a reason these researchers aren’t approached, as cryptozoologist, Sharon Day, founder of Ghost Hunting Theories explained in a recent conversation about sasquatches and approaching them in this way, under the belief that they are a type of human species.

"It’s misleading to show the public that going into a forest for a weekend is going to be how one gets evidence of Sasquatch. Rushing the woods in a disruptive manner is only going to put Sasquatch on their guard. They do not like intrusion by strangers and they will simply go deeper into hiding. If a cable channel wanted a true reality show with any chance of glimpses of the Sasquatch, a show would need to revolve around habituators, those who live in on property shared with Sasquatch clans. The residents would probably have to film the show themselves, something like "Ghost Adventures." It would need to unfold over time and with patience. The key thing with this "Habituation Situation" show would be to bring to light the family units of Sasquatch, their reticence in trusting us, and the way in which they are able to coexist with us with great dignity, given our antics on their land. Knocking on trees and hollering, disrupting the peace of the forest by strangers who are unpredictable, is the worst possible example to give the public of how to have Sasquatch encounters. Although it certainly makes for entertaining TV to see the use of crying baby dolls and fireworks, it is a dangerous example of how to handle a shy people like sasquatches."

In essence, that would take too much time and effort. Maybe that’s more of a project for Nova or National Geographic over a period of years.

So, is there anything good about these shows from the perspective of the researchers in the field? It seemed to me like a bit of a double-edged sword.

"There are a few people who get out in the woods often, who know more than most. But their reputation gets somewhat diminished because of the shows," says Washington State researcher, Tommy Naff. " For the outside observer, these shows do provide some value. But for the hard core researcher/enthusiast, the shows are more for passing time and amusement.

"I think it hurts as far as credibility…" Cripple Creek Colorado crytpozoologist and paranormal investigator, Leon Drew, said recently. "But puts more eyes in the woods."

This view is widely accepted among many. The shows brings more attention to the subject, but can detract from serious research that also deserves attention and doesn’t get it, as crytpid hunter, Adam Davies, who’s appeared on National Geographic documentaries and Monsterquest explains.

"I think they are certainly bringing more mainstream awareness of the subject to the general population. But I would really like to see one [show] which concentrates on a couple of really serious potential areas and concentrates professional and scientific resource. I am yet to see one that does not spend more than a week at most in an area and then moves on," he said.

But Massachusetts researcher, Dax Rushlow, a real researcher who was also a member of the original cast of Ten Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty who also has recently casted some very interesting footprints from his area has a somewhat lighter overview from his perspective.

"It’s all just TV," he said. "I like the fact it brings Sasquatch out in the general public. I still do my research the correct way. Yes, some of the shows are bad, but it makes my life easier to do my business in this field."

Yes, the bigfoot craze on TV does bring a lot of trouble for those who are serious about the subject. But it also brings a lot of new fans to the subject too. And when people become fans of Bigfoot shows, whether they believe it all today or not, they’re more than likely the ones who’ll believe tomorrow. So maybe it’s a good thing to keep their attention???

And maybe it’s not bad to make money off of Sasquatch. And maybe it’s not bad to joke about the subject. We all do it from time to time. Just don’t make a mockery of the researcher’s work that takes a lot of time and patience and effort. Don’t lead viewers to believe it’s all so simple and cut and dry and that they all think the same way.

And maybe we shouldn’t expect miracles from these shows, or for them to be exactly the way we want them. Bigfoot shows may really only mean to entertain rather than inform. Isn’t that what TV is really supposed to be? So naturally it latched onto the subject of Bigfoot. Because Bigfoot, whether you believe or not, is like the rock star of the forest. Who wouldn’t latch on to that?

Turn invisible?

Quantum Stealth Bigfoot?

Is Bigfoot Cloaking More Possible Than We Think?

By Dorraine Fisher

The military has finally done it. They’ve devised a technology to make humans invisible. So how does this apply to the hairy ones? I’ve heard so many descriptions of bigfoot encounters that describe the creatures as having military stealth and cunning. I’ve even introduced the idea that they may employ sniper-like skills for hiding and eluding humans. Too many claims have been made by researchers that these creatures at least give the appearance of being able to disappear at will. Though many scoff at the idea, maybe we should rethink this. Maybe we should focus on what COULD be possible instead of dwelling on what we think shouldn’t be.

Because there’s more.

A Canadian company, with backing from the U.S. military, has developed quantum stealth invisibility cloaking technology. It is still in its early stages, but promises one very important thing to Bigfooters: the concept that invisibility IS possible and the technology behind it is fairly simple. That is, once you understand it. But it’s simple enough that we can apply it to a bigfoot’s ability to blend in to its surroundings or even possibly disappear.

Last year, Sharon Day, in her blog, Ghost Hunting Theories, suggested that maybe bigfoot hair possesses a translucent quality that catches the light surrounding it and causes the creature to blend into its surroundings somewhat. She used this theory to explain why so many bigfoot photos come out blurry. But can the same property render them invisible or almost invisible?

According to quantum stealth technology, it just might. It’s a fairly cheap, lightweight material that catches light and allows it to bend around the subject and make it or someone wearing it appear invisible. And it’s soon to be available to our military for use in the field.

So, if bigfoot hair does possess some special quality like translucence as Sharon Day suggested, then is it really much of a stretch to imagine that it may actually be possible for these creatures to blend into the landscape or virtually disappear?

When we think of it this way, it doesn’t seem quite as impossible.

In order to do really good bigfoot research, we can’t leave any stone unturned. If we look the other way every time something outrageous is suggested, we might never learn what we need to learn about them. With so many new researchers in the field and so many reports of this kind of ability, we can no longer ignore it. We might have to just, instead of arguing why it’s not possible, decide to try and find the ways it might actually be possible.

Nature continues to astound us every day. Both plants and animals have amazing adaptive abilities and qualities unique to them. And if we keep that in mind, it’s easy to take Bigfoot abilities to the next level. We, as humans, have a tendency to believe that if a new and fantastic concept arises, it must certainly be intricate and complicated. But it’s often so simple we can’t grasp it. And maybe that’s the case here. Maybe we just need to change our perspective. ******DF

Sharon Day's New book
Strange but true

More Than Just An Unusual Childhood!!!
Sharon Day’s Book "Growing Up With Ghosts"

Truth really is stranger than fiction. And Sharon Day’s book Growing Up With Ghost surely ranks among the highest for strange but true stories. She chronicles her childhood from her earliest memories of her experiences with ghosts in a house she and her family occupied in Northern Virginia in the 1960’s and 70’s

Most people who’ve had experiences with ghosts in fleeting moments often have trouble processing what they’ve seen because maybe they understand too well what "normal" is supposed to be. But Sharon Day grew up with a different definition of normal, and took it and ran with it. She was a child, not traumatized at all by her experiences, but molded and shaped by the wonder all around her during those years.

In her book, she takes you through the strange journey of her day to day life of this quirky, often bewildering, but only sometimes scary world of spirits and unusual events that unfolded as she grew up in the 250-year-old house with her four siblings.

Growing Up With Ghosts offers a clear picture into what has shaped and molded the author of the popular blog, Ghost Hunting Theories, and what drives her to find answers in her paranormal research to this day. Growing Up With Ghosts is a great tribute to that and well worth the read for ghosts lovers or anyone else looking for entertaining reading. I highly recommend it. It won’t disappoint. *********DF
