Top 10 Paranormal Facts | My 2016 Favourites’ COMPILATION

August 14, 2019 99 By William Hollis


In this compilation video, I showcase some
of the most intriguing paranormal facts featured by the Paranormal Scholar in 2016. Gaurav Tiwari was one of India’s foremost
paranormal investigators. Having entered the field after sharing a house
with a poltergeist whilst training to be a commercial pilot in America, Tiwari was revered
for scientific method and his efforts at educating people about paranormal awareness. His interest and ability eventually led him
to found the Indian Paranormal Society. On the 7th of July 2016, Tiwari would conduct
his last ever paranormal investigation. Just a few hours after returning from an allegedly
haunted house, he passed away. Tiwari’s death has been shrouded in mystery
ever since his body was discovered with a thin black line around his neck. The initial official explanation was suicide. Yet, without a plausible motive and a concurring
medical report, the case was reclassified as a homicide. Certainly, in suicide cases where death is
by hanging, the trachea invariably ruptures. In the case of Tiwari, the black line around
his neck had done no such damage. In the months that have followed his sudden
death, some have speculated that a vengeful spirit attacked and killed Tiwari. What makes this case all the more mysterious
is that, according to the Times of India, Tiwari had confided in his wife only a month
prior to his death that “a negative force was pulling him towards it. ” Gaurav Tiwari believed that most paranormal
experiences are psychological, but that there is that one to two percent that is genuine. Could he have found out that he was all too
right, and in doing so, have discovered that some paranormal forces have the power to cause
us real harm, or even kill us? In the summer of 2013, 25-year-old John Jenkin
from Cumbria, England expressed fears that he would kill his mother. Whilst in a deranged state, he approached
a van driver, put his hands in the air in a ‘surrender’ motion and cried out: “I
am armed, but it’s not in my hands.” Desperate to avoid committing such an atrocity,
Jenkin tried to end his life by drowning himself in a river. He was discovered later that day, unstable,
and smeared with his own blood after cutting himself with shells. After his failed suicide attempt, Jenkin was
admitted to a psychiatric hospital. However, staff judged him as low risk and
released him. Later that evening, he confessed to a group
of friends that he was “possessed by demons”. He also said: “I am the devil, I need to
confess.” The following morning, Jenkin butchered his
mother and sister with an axe. After the killings, Jenkin was found naked
crouched behind a bench, acting erratically. When a police officer asked him if he had
taken anything, Jenkin replied: “Lives.” The ensuing inquest into the murders revealed
that on the night prior to Jenkin’s barbaric rampage, his sister, Katie, had confided in
a friend that she was “really worried” about her brother. She expressed fears that “he didn’t seem
like her brother and he didn’t look like her brother any more”.
“… he was not really talkative … when he was looking at her it was not John’s
eyes, it was almost as if it was someone else.” If a pregnant woman dies in Malaysia it is
imperative that the following ritual is performed with utmost precision. The dead woman’s mouth must be filled with
glass beads and a single needle should be placed in each of her hands. If this does not happen, then she may return
from the dead in the form of one of the most malevolent beings of folklore – a Pontianak. The Pontianak is vampiric in nature and has
many tactics for quenching its thirst for blood. Sometimes it will mimic the sound of a baby
crying in the hope that a passer-by will be tricked into straying from the safety of the
path to investigate. The softer the baby’s cry, the closer the
Pontianak is to you. It is also said that the Pontianak will use
its appearance in order to hunt its prey. As this creature often takes the form of a
young, beautiful woman, it will use this beauty to lure men to isolated locations. However, once alone her alluring gaze changes
and her once sweet floral scent transforms into a foul odour. At once, the man is attacked. The savage spirit digs in its sharp fingernails;
the victim’s abdomen is ripped open. What follows is a blood-bath: the Pontianak
will gorge itself on the man’s blood and innards as he is still alive. The monster may even brutally castrate its
victim, prolonging the pain for its own delight. However, the Pontianak is feared above all
else for its love of newborn children. The blood of a woman in labour is believed
to draw in this terrifying creature, meaning that even today in Malaysia it is customary
to bury the umbilical cord and blood stained clothes of a woman after giving birth. In order to break the Pontianak’s cycle
of slaughter, it is said that a nail must be driven into the back of its neck. So long as the nail remains, the blood drive
is destroyed and the Pontianak will become a normal woman. Peggy enjoys tormenting her victims. In 2015 this blonde haired doll caused shock
and distress amongst the online paranormal community. The doll was donated to British paranormal
researcher, Jayne Harris, by her terrified owner. She reported experiencing constant nightmares
which would jolt her from slumber, leaving her hot and shaken. It did not matter where Peggy was in her home,
the nightmares persisted with increasing intensity. Two visits from a local priest did nothing
to stop the nightmares. The activity reached such intensity that the
owner fell into a fever and began suffering hallucinations. It was at this point that she became convinced
Peggy was at the centre of her suffering, and so made the decision to get rid of her. After taking ownership of Peggy, Jayne Harris
uploaded a series of videos and photographs of Peggy to the internet. She immediately received an influx of emails
from shaken viewers who claimed to have experienced terrifying visions of mental institutions,
acute chest pains, nausea and crippling headaches after viewing photos and videos of the doll. One woman even claimed to have suffered a
heart attack after watching Peggy. The doll is also thought to be able to influence
her chose victims’ dreams – even at a distance. Peggy is even said to have correctly predicted
the death of one woman’s cat in this way. Many people have expressed fear that the doll
is possessed by an evil – possibly demonic – spirit. Certainly, according to her current owner,
Peggy seems to have a strong aversion to the crucifix necklace which she was made to wear
to her previous owner. All in all, Jayne Harris has received over
80 messages from people who were affected after watching Peggy. According to modern knowledge, there is only
one specimen of Satanic calligraphy in existence. This curious extract first appeared in 1523,
taken from an Italian text which describes an encounter between Ludovico Spoletano and
the Devil. Spoletano allegedly summoned Satan, requesting
that he use his body as a vessel to write clear and legible answers to a series of questions
asked of him. However, the King of Hell refused to cooperate,
and instead snatched the pen into midair so as to rapidly scrawl the answers himself. What the Devil wrote was indecipherable: a
series of diabolic scrawls that seems as though it should read from left to right. After being passed onto several learned men
without success of decryption, the text disappeared into abeyance. As of today, no one has been able to decode
the text or make a convincing case for it being a hoax. However, academics have identified traces
of some of the manuscript’s characters in Amharic, a language spoken in its purity in
the province of Amhara, Ethiopia. According to legend, this was the primeval
language spoken in Eden. It is in the history of 17th century France
that one can find some of the first solid accounts of organised Satanic rituals. La Voisin, a French fortune teller, poisoner
and professed sorceress, was known to have killed anywhere between 1000 to 2,500 people
in Black Masses. La Voisin entertained powerful guests. The richest and brightest stars of the French
court would visit the notorious fortune teller to request that she whisper in the Devil’s
ear on their behalf. One example was Madame de Montespan who employed
la Voisin to conduct multiple Black Masses in order to secure the love of the King of
France. Within one year, Montespan was Louis 14th’s
(XIV) official royal mistress. La Voisin’s Black Mass made use of a naked
female human alter, in mockery of the sacredness of the Christian altar. The woman would lie naked with a chalice on
her bare stomach, as she held two black candles in each of her outstretched arms. Such an aspect would become a permanent feature
of future Satanic Masses. The power of blood was also an important feature
of the Black Mass. La Voisin would have many children abducted
to be sacrificed. An attendant of la Voisin was discovered to
have buried the corpses of 2,500 infants on their property. A confession at the later trial of la Voisin
provides this chilling account of the Black Masses performed for Madame de Montespan around
1672: A long black velvet pall was spread over the
altar, and upon this the royal mistress laid herself in a state of perfect nudity. Six black candles were lit […] the gold
paten and chalice were placed upon the naked belly of the living altar […] All was silent
save for the low monotonous murmur of the blasphemous liturgy […] An assistant crept
forward bearing an infant in her arms. The child was held over the altar, a sharp
gash across the neck, a stifled cry, and warm drops fell into the chalice and streamed upon
the white figure beneath. The corpse was handed to la Voisin, who flung
it callously into an oven fashioned for that purpose which glowed white-hot in its fierceness. Although la Voisin met a grisly fate upon
the burning execution pyre in 1680, her dark legacy would continue. Mitar Tarabić was an illiterate peasant from
the small Serbian village of Kremna. Before his death in 1899, he acquired a local
reputation for his apparent ability to see the future. The local Orthodox priest at the time decided
to write down his predictions for posterity. These passages are now referred to as the
Prophecies of Kremna. Unlike many acclaimed seers, Tarabić’s
prophecies contain a surprising amount of detail, including specific names, places and
dates. In one of his predictions, he is recorded
as having said: “After the assassination of the King and Queen,
the Karađorđevićs will come to power. Then we will again start a war with the Turks. Four Christian states will attack Turkey,
and our border will be on the river Lim. Then we shall finally conquer and avenge Kosovo…” From 1903 to 1912, Tarabić’s prophecy played
out perfectly: the Serbian King and Queen were killed by their own guards, and replaced
by the Karađorđević dynasty. Shortly afterwards, the First Balkan War broke
out, which saw four Christian nations – [Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece and Montenegro ]- fight against
the Ottoman empire. The result was the successful expansion of
Serbia to the river Lim. During this conversation with the local priest,
Tarabić offered startling insight into another future war: “Soon after this war, another war will start…the
Big War in which a lot of blood will be spilled. If that blood were a river, a huge stone of
300 kilograms would roll in its current easily… I will tell you one more thing, father: the
invading army will come to Kremna exactly on your baptismal day, stay for three years
and go away on the same day they came—St Luke’s Day. But you will not see the end of the war. In the last year of the world’s big carnage,
you will die. Both these wars, the one with the Turks and
the big one when the whole world will be at war, will take away two of your grandchildren—one
before, and the other after your death.” Once again, Tarabić’s words became reality. During World War One, the Serbian army was
defeated by the Germans on 9th October, making it highly probable that the village of Krenma
was occupied a few days later, on St Luke’s day, the 18th. Serbia was liberated three years later, one
again around St Luke’s day. Tarabić’s priest died in 1918, the final
year of World War One, having survived one his grandchildren, who died during the bloodshed. His other grandchild outlived him, but would
later die in World War Two. Tarabić would go on to reveal many more accurate
predictions of the future, making allusions to a ‘red czar upon the Russian throne’
who will not wage war until attacked. Stalin only entered World War Two after being
attacked by Hitler. Tarabić also described the ‘great kingdoms
from across the sea’ who would set free enslaved Europe. In regards to more modern times, he is claimed
to have stated that: “Men will build a box and within will be some
kind of gadget with images, but they will not be able to communicate with me already
dead, even though this image gadget will be as close to this other world as hairs on the
human scalp are close to each other. With the help of this image gadget, man will
be able to see everything that is happening all over the world.” Although Tarabić died long before the rise
of television and computers, he seemed to possess an insight into the technological
advancements of a future society. Elaborating on this trend, he described how: “The more people will know, the less they
will love and care for each other. Hatred will be so great between them that
they will care more for their different gadgets than for their relatives…Man will trust
his gadget more than his first neighbour…’’ Tarabić’s words seem hauntingly accurate. However, at least one author has questioned
the authenticity of the Prophecies of Kremna, suggesting that the Mitar Tarabić is little
more than a local legend. Yet, it could be that those who question the
reality of Tarabić and his prophecies are simply too afraid to accept a future in which
his words come to pass. After all, the notebook of the priest is said
to contain a chilling description of yet another World War with even more devastating consequences: “The greatest and the angriest will strike
against the mightiest and the most furious! When this horrible war starts, woe to those
armies that fly over skies; better off will be those who fight on ground and water […] Then
people will run away from cities to the country and look for the mountains with three crosses,
and there, inside, they will be able to breathe and drink water. Those who will escape will save themselves
and their families, but not for long, because a great famine will appear. There will be plenty of food in towns and
villages, but it will be poisoned. Many will eat because of hunger and die immediately. Those who will fast to the end will survive
[…] Only one country at the end of the world, surrounded by great seas, as big as our Europe,
will live in peace, without any troubles.” What makes Tarabić’s prophecy all the more
disturbing is its seeming concurrence with the future predictions of both Nostradamus
and Baba Vanga…. With the plague over, the earth shrinks …
Before war, once again, is called for. Europe will be “almost empty” and nothing
more than “wastelands devoid of any form of life. ” At first glance, this image may not strike
one as mysterious. It is only when the story of the Dyatlov Pass
Incident is told that the full extent of this photo’s horrifying mysteries are revealed. In February 1959, a trekking group of nine
experienced ski hikers set up camp in the Ural Mountains. Weeks later, their tent was discovered, torn,
and half-covered in snow. It was empty, with all of the hikers’ possession
left behind. It took two more months for all of the bodies
to be recovered. The first of the bodies were discovered around
a mile away from camp. The footprints which led to them indicated
that they were only wearing socks, or were even barefooted. This was in spite of temperatures reaching
as a low as minus 30 degrees celsius. The remaining bodies were found in a ravine,
buried under four metres of snow. Post-mortem investigations struggled to determine
a cause of death. Four of the bodies were found to have such
traumatic injuries that the investigation could only conclude that an “unknown compelling
force” had led to their deaths. One of the female hikers’ bodies was discovered
in a horrifying state. She was missing her tongue, eyes, parts of
her lips, as well as facial tissue and a fragment of skullbone. An attack by unknown assailants was ruled
out as a possibility due to the lack of additional footprints at the site and no evidence of
a hand-to-hand struggle. Furthermore, the injuries found on three of
the bodies could not have been caused by another human being, because the force of the blows
had been too strong and no soft tissue had been damaged. Forensic tests have revealed that high doses
of radioactive contamination were found on the hiker’s clothes. After the incident, the pass was closed to
the public for three years. The inquest files were also sent to a secret
archive. Photocopies of the case only became available
in the 1990s, although some parts – such as reports into the condition of the hiker’s
internal organs – are still missing. On the night of the incident, another group
of hikers around 50 kilometres away, reported that they witnessed peculiar orange spheres
in the night sky. Similar objects were observed continuously
during the period from February to March of that year in adjacent areas. A cryptozoological explanation has also been
put forward, with many sightings of a large humanoid creature, resembling the legendary
Yeti, being reported in the region. Ultimately what happened to the hikers that
night remains a true mystery. In France, UFOs are so commonplace that discussion
of them does not belong to the fringes of society. Rather, there is a government bureau which
is dedicated to their documentation and scientific investigation. Based in Toulouse, the UFO taskforce, GEIPAN,
is an offshoot of the French Space Agency. Consisting of four full-time members of staff
and around a dozen volunteers, the group publishes its reports on its website. By operating under a code of full public disclosure,
the work of GEIPAN is arguably the most comprehensive and transparent of any UFO institution. On average, two cases of unidentified aerospace
phenomena are reported to the department each day. Although nearly all of the submitted reports
can be explained as terrestrial in origin, there are around 400 cases, which date from
the 1970s to the present day, that the French team cannot explain. Overwhelmingly, it is southeastern France
which offers some of the most compelling cases of UFO sightings. In particular, it is the Trans-en-Provence
case of 1981 which is taken very seriously. It was around 5pm on the 8th of January when
a 55-year-old farmer heard a strange whistling noise whilst outside. It was then that the man witnessed a mysterious
saucer-shaped object land in the field around 50 yards away from him. He described the object as follows: “The device
had the shape of two saucers, one inverted on top of the other. It must have measured about 1.5 meters in
height. It was the color of lead. This device had a ridge all the way around
its circumference. Under the machine I saw two kinds of pieces
as it was lifting off. They could be reactors or feet. There were also two other circles which looked
like trapdoors. The two reactors, or feet, extended about
20 cm below the body of the machine.” Almost as soon as it had landed, the machine
took off, leaving burn marks on the ground where it had sat. The local police were informed of the incident. Within 24 hours, photographs were taken, as
well as soil and plant samples. The case was then sent to GEIPAN for review. The task force revealed that the object had
left a substantial physical trace on the land. The ground, they reported, had been compressed
by a mechanical pressure of about 4 or 5 tons, and had been heated to anywhere between 300
to 600 degrees celsius. Furthermore, a nearby crop of alfalfa showed
lower than expected levels of chlorophyll, by some 30 to 50 per cent. To this day, the Trans-en-Provence case is
regarded as one of the most completely and carefully documented UFO encounters of all
time. The following eerie EVP was not taken by professional
or amateur ghost hunters. Rather, it was recorded on highly restricted
airways by firefighters on their dispatch radio during a fatal house fire. It can be accessed on an official emergency
services website, which posts the latest recordings by all dispatch officials in the area. A
voice can be heard very clearly saying ‘9 men’, and then possibly ‘trapped’. Whoever this is speaks over the firefighter:
an impossibility on dispatch radio signals. Also, these radio frequencies are usually
encrypted so that no civilian can tap into them. Radio analysts have studied this piece of
audio and have found it to be authentic. Furthermore, the voice comes through at a
time of ‘dead air’, meaning that there was no radio turned on at the time. This piece of audio is a true mystery: where
did this voice come from? Theories range from beings speaking from a
parallel dimension, to ghosts attempting to warn firefighters as they tackled the fatal
fire. Thank you for watching. If you enjoyed this, please like and subscribe
