ghost stories

Just about everyone I know has a ghost story or they know someone who does. What is the most terrifying experience you have ever had with ghost? Have you encountered demons? Have you ever saw or spoke to some sort of entity? Please share your stories and thoughts below. I don’t only wish to hear stories from the Carolinas, rather stories about ghost of the world. I would love for this site to become more interactive.

Do ghost exist?

People are good, and evil simply doesn’t exist. Humans are truly good at heart and the only thing outside of our physical understanding is the endless skies and mysteries thereof. There is no such thing as ghost.
Or is there?

Everything is black and white, and there is no grey area. There is no good, other than good intentions. There is no evil, other than bad decisions. There is no god and there is no devil, no heaven and no hell. There are no angels and demons or ghosts and goblins. None of it exists outside of our own perception. There are no monsters other than the monsters we create inside of our minds. There is no hell other than the one we build around ourselves. There is nothing to be learned except invaluable lessons where the subjects are destined to repeat the same mistakes time and time again. No truths, only subtle undertones. No openness, only emotional masquerades where one hides what is really felt. There are no true heroes, only those who dream of courageous acts and those who have no choice but to act. Both of which are characters in this hopeless tragedy, drowning in a pool of romanticized emptiness.

We spend life thinking how they tell us to, writing our stories according to their standards and believing what they say we must believe in order to obtain salvation. Are they the monsters? Are the ghosts we see anything more than our bottled thoughts and lost desires? Simply misplaced energies searching for an outlet? Searching for a way to be seen, to be heard or to correct those wrong decisions? Are they the demons and the things that goes bump in the night are nothing more than ones broken mind and soul? Have they been misleading us our entire lives, or have we been lying to ourselves? Are we the monsters?

Humanity as a species will take an innocent mans life. We take what isn‘t ours, we rape and we brutalize those weaker than we are then we lie to cover it up. We cross our families for money, we break the hearts of those who love us the most and none of it is justified. We often feel no remorse nor regret for our actions and too many times fail to notice the pain we cause other people. So much pain inflicted upon other souls… That when you truly think about the feelings and energies emitted from such pain you begin to question everything including your very own existence. Upon examination you see that we leave a trail of emptiness, hopelessness and desperation without even batting an eye. You begin to see the sheer destruction caused by the lusts of man, leaving little room for hope inside your heart. We are indeed monsters.

I can attest with the utmost honesty to having seen and heard things which can not be explained. I, Aaron Corey Sprouse bear witness to things unseen and things unknown. I have stood in the scariest places in the southeast and challenged any entity that could respond. I have stood in homes where the most outlandish things were reported to have taken place and I never ran. I spent my time and money on researching these events. Every lead leads to another question and every question leads to another lead. Was I ever doing anything more than challenging myself? When examining the fallacy of man, these are the kinds of questions we musk ask ourselves. No matter what your opinion on the subject is, the same questions beg to be answered. I urge you to share with me your ghost story. Whether it be a thrilling tale of a dark entity that plagues the halls of your home or shattered hopes forever trapped somewhere due to the anguish you felt or caused.

Are ghosts real? Are they anything more than myth or is there any substance at all to the claims? I want to know what you think. Have you seen a ghost? Have you encountered unexplainable phenomena or have you created ghosts? Were you left nothing more than a ghost, a shell of your former self, by someone’s selfishness? Ask yourself was it worth it, the decisions you made? Was the hurt you inflicted upon someone else’s soul worth whatever momentary pleasure you received? Think these things through very carefully and please share with me your ghost story.

All the love in the world,
Aaron Corey Sprouse

What sets the SCSI apart? OUR INVESTIGATORY PROTOCOL (PROFESSIONAL TIPS)

         South Carolina supernatural investigators (scsi) investigatory protocol

Founders and lead investigators: Maxwell Alexander, Aaron Sprouse

Standard protocol for the SCSI, a professional supernatural investigation society.
Qualities of a Professional investigator:
*Investigators should display strong sense of being and understanding of the supernatural.
* Investigators must be open minded, yet reasonable.
* Investigators must be willing to work with others to achieve a goal.
*Investigators should be brave and pious.
* Investigators must be able to put feelings and personal experience aside, focusing on evidence.
SCSI investigation regulations
* We will stick to our given roles, understanding that everyone’s talents and spiritual beliefs (or lack thereof) make this unit work.
* We will enter a location open minded, holding firm to the possibility of the paranormal, vying for confirmable data, while seeking scientific explanation.
* During a recording session all sounds made by the team that could be interpreted as paranormal should be verbally noted.
* While recording is in progress, only one investigator at a time should ask questions.
* All investigators should allow adequate time between questions, at least 10-30 seconds.
* If one investigator is asking a series of questions and another team member has the urge to add, or to ask a different question he should signal with his hand that he is about to speak, Eliminating the possibility of overlapping voices being misinterpreted.
* If the investigators experience a seemingly unexplainable event, they should seek a scientific explanation.
* Investigating should be fun, yet during a recording session playing should be limited.
* Investigators should have proper lighting equipment
* The investigation team should pray, before and after a spiritual investigation (regardless of religious beliefs)
* Investigators should carry identification so it can be presented in the event of being required to do so by the authorities.
* The SCSI should carry a basic first aid kit at every investigation.
* In the event of a non-team member entering the investigation location we will be honest then resume collecting data, unless we are intruding on private property and are asked to leave.
* We will be brave, if an entity manifest itself before us, or something directly paranormal happens we will not run and act scared. We will stand firm and continue to collect data.
* Lead investigators have authority over the investigation, and which investigatory methods will be applied. (Unless a case is deemed demonic)
* If we have a spiritualist, psychic, shaman, medium or priest working with us as a consultant then we will respect their expertise and professional instinct.
* When certified and experienced consultants sense danger we will abide, Even if it contradicts logic and rational thinking.
* In the event that a purely evil or demonic entity is felt by a priest, minister, or demonologist the investigation should cease and demonic expulsion should be engaged.
* In the event that a spirit is concluded demonic, no one should ask it questions or engage with it in any way except the priest, minister, or demonologist.

These basic guidelines are set to maintain a professional, effective and efficient investigation. They are in no way meant to extract the fun and personal enjoyment from investigation.
It is important to maintain protocol in order to ensure untainted data, regulate a safe and professional crew that garners results.
But never forget,The most important rule is to have fun.

THE DEVIL’S TRAMPING GROUND, NORTH CAROLINA

The Well known spot according to Wikipedia.com “The Devil’s Tramping Ground is a camping spot located in a forest near the Harper’s Crossroads area near Bennett, North Carolina. It has been the subject of persistent local legends and lore, which frequently allege that the Devil “tramps” and haunts a barren circle of ground in which nothing is supposed to grow.

Stories about the ring are well known in local communities. These include the disappearance of objects left within the ring overnight, dogs yipping and howling not wanting to go near it, and strange events occurring to those brave enough to spend the night within its boundaries. It has been alleged that nothing has grown within the 40 foot ring for a hundred years. Legend says that this is the very place the devil himself can rise from the depths of fiery hell, and come to earth. It’s at this place that the devil is supposed to walk in circles on certain nights and bring his evil into this world.[1]

John William Harden (1903–1985) of Greensboro, N.C., journalist, newspaper editor, author, and advisor to North Carolina governors and textile executives, had this to say of the Devil’s Tramping Ground:
Chatham natives say… that the Devil goes there to walk in circles as he thinks up new means of causing trouble for humanity. There, sometimes during the dark of night, the Majesty of the Underworld of Evil silently tramps around that bare circle– thinking, plotting, and planning against good, and in behalf of wrong. So far as is known, no person has ever spent the night there to disprove this is what happens… (Harden, 1949)”

Satan’s home turf, Old Scratch himself hangs here. The notorious tramping ground; a place of legend, horror, Satanism and witchcraft. The initial vibe is downright terrifying. The location almost seems to scream “leave now!” The Air is thick and the trees seem to bellow in pain as the wind cascades through their branches. Animals seem to navigate away from the circle, avoiding it’s ominous vibe. The legend has survived the test of time and will no doubt continue to thrive and bring outsiders to the town. I was in awe at this historic, and strange place.
The circle is indeed mysterious, No vegetation grows inside of it. Does that make it haunted? I’m afraid not. Despite the dark vibes that one gets here, despite the rumors, it had to be formally investigated. We set out on a two and a half hour trip to the tramping ground; excited, nervous, and anxious. We had heard several stories of unruly locals who do not take too kindly to intruders. Their way of dealing with the “derelict trespassers” is to make noises in the wood’s, shake tents, and move item’s from inside of the circle. This remains a popular spot for people from all over the state of North Carolina to come camp, despite the locals and their shenanigans. We went on a Friday night and saw that there were indeed campers there, very nice people who were more than willing to give us an interview. We talked, laughed, and observed the area in it’s entirety.
We conducted several EMF sessions; picking up nothing unusual. Many recording sessions revealed no EVP’S. Our photo’s revealed no entities. The video footage had no signs of Satan whatsoever. The feelings you get here can be attributed to the ominous legend, the dark stories and the mystery of growth in the circle, nothing more. After you get used to being here the vibe changes. You realize that it is nothing more that a weird circle in the woods; albeit they are creepy woods. I do urge you to check it out, but please be mindful of the property owners. Do not litter and do your best to clean up.

BILLY GOAT BRIDGE ROAD (GAFFNEY’S MOST BLATANT HAUNTING)

HERE YOU WILL WITNESS:

THE MOST BLATANT, IN YOUR FACE HAUNTING THAT GAFFNEY, SOUTH CAROLINA HAS EVER SEEN

BILLY GOAT BRIDGE (REVISED)

Ghost admitting their existence! Provoking investigators! answering several

11/17/14

ME: @AARONSPROUSE


  DAY 1.   February 2, 2014 The SCSI (South Carolina supernatural investigations) conducted an investigation on Billy goat Bridge Road in Gaffney, South Carolina. The first trip to this location resulted in some of the most startling GRADE A EVP’S that I have ever heard. Maxwell Alexander, along with Sarah Freyta and Michael Guyton (both former investigators) held a recording session here for day one. I had never seen them so excited. It was as if the guys had stumbled directly onto a gold mine; they did!


  I knew this was the real deal. I COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE READY.  I LISTENED TO THE STUNNING EVP from the night before, over and over again.

^Just as they said, a clear male voice asking “why is my face burned?”.^


HAVING THAT EVP ALONE IS GOOD ENOUGH HUH?

       DAY 2.   Maxwell, Mikey and I were set to take on the investigation of a lifetime. Oh the dark, eerie, feeling of being watched. heightened senses; extreme paranoia; visual and auditory matrxcing. This location packs it all in the first punch. Sarah was not able to come on investigation number two. Which is really interesting considering what we found next. An even clearer EVP STATING: “this F****** burning” in a female voice. (yes i am serious)


DAY 3-5.

We captured two evp’s saying Mikey (one of our team members) BUT THAT WAS NOTHING. WE HAVE CAPTURED ANOTHER GRADE A EVP, SAYING “I EXIST”


              A few of these EVP‘s were captured while in the vehicle, others on the bridge. On the bridge we had EXTREMELY high EMF readings, and an extremely dark feeling. The entire place has an ominous vibe. It is  dark, it is cold and it’s downright frightening. We ALL sensed a presence and in direct response to asking for a manifestation Manifest we had knocking on the bridge. Constant rumbling under the bridge and direct responses to questions asked. Out of several recording sessions we captured qute a few EVP’s that I would conclude to be spirits.

          As a group of logical thinkers we attribute the rest to natural sounds and recording disturbances that happen as a group of people walk around. As an investigatory protocol We note every sound that the crew makes, eliminating the possibility of these evp’s being us. I, Aaron Sprouse would professionally conclude that this place is indeed haunted.  Not just by one spirit, but two. One spirit being a male who was not aggressive and the second spirit being a female which I deemed to be malevolent.
