Current Ghost Investigations
I am attempting to track down the ghost of Steve Jobs.
We all know the legend. Steve was a powerful, enigmatic, complex character. It is my belief that much of his success can be attributed to his ability to project psychic energy. Many other famous people have had this trait. Consider Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Ghandi, and Pope Johjn Paul. these people were able to attract the attemtion and allegiance of millions of others through projection of their psych energy. Some characters used this power for evil. Consider Jim Jones, who led more than 900 followers to commit suicice; and Adolf Hitler.
I believe people who possess a high degree of psychic energy are more liely to remain Earth-bound after death and project their energy to receptive people. When projection of energy occurs, we hear a sound or see an apparition. Since Jobs undoubtedly had a huge capacity to project psychic energy, I am looking for his ghost.

Alcatraz Prison at night
The San Francisco waterfront was ablaze in lights as we headed to the island under a starey sky. Later that night, the fog rolled in, making the prison buildings look like a set from a horror movie. Thanks to my friend Jackie Ganiy for accompanying me on this spectacular investigation.

The Monterey Hotel
in historic Monterey, CA,
Intrigued by several stories about ghostly activity at this historic hotel, I contacted Maureen Doran, vice president of Moonstone Properties, for more information. Ms. Doran made available to me the hotel's most haunted room, suite 217. She also arranged for me to interview employees about their encounters with the paranormal in this 1904-vintage building.
It turns out that several members of the hotel's staff have had paranormal experiences. Many have been touched by disembodied hands, heard whispers close to their ear, felt a cold presence in the hallways and rooms, and spotted apparitions. The ghost of a little girl has been seen by several staff members and guests. She sits on the stairs near the front desk and walks the hallways on the second and third floors. One guest who is a sensitive and medium, reportedy spoke to the ghost girl. She was such a bothersome presence to this psychic that he decided not to stay in the hotel for his wedding night.
The image of a man dressed in Edwardian clothing has been spotted in a mirror that faces the front desk. This fellow may be the architect who designed the elegant hotel. Staff have seen doors open and close and lights flicker, too.
My own experiences were amazing. In suite 217, I listened for several minutes while a disembodied male voice rambled on about "seventy-five stairs." He kept talking about "going up" and "going down;" "gotta fix 75 stairs." "Gotta fix the carpet on 75 stairs." The number 75 must be significant to this fellow. On a cell phone in my room, the number 75 was typed in by this ghost, filling the screen with 7s and 5s. Also, my son Michael and I heard both TVs in the suite and a clock radio emit an electrical "pop" several times when they were not turned on. I believe the ghost responsible was a fellow the staff call Fred. Fred once worked in the hotel as a maintenance and repair guy. He died on the premises, possibly from a fall down the stairs.
If you plan to visit the Monterey peninsula, I recommend the Monterey Hotel. It sits in the heart of town close to several historic (and haunted) Spanish and Mexican buildings. It is not far from Fisherman's Wharf and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The staff of the Monterey Hotel are truly open to guests who seek paranormal experiences. Enjoy the beauty and comfort of this fantastic hotel while you soak up the atmosphere of this amazing early-twentieth century building.
The Cordelia Antique Mall
4650 Central Way, Fairfield, CA
In December and January, members of Pacific Paranormal Associates and Sonoma SPIRIT (Jackie Ganiy and Paul Thomas) visted the amazing Antique Mall in Fairfield, CA. The building covers 15,000 square feet, including eight railroad cars from the 1930s and 40s. With thousands of antiques, it is no wonder that spirts have tagged along with their cherished possessions that are now up for sale.
We captured some fascinating EVP and 5 of us had simultaneous personal experiences that confirm the reputation of this unique store as an intensely haunted place.
We are currently analyzing EVP recorded during a seance staged in this railroad car. Several cars are incorporated into the walls of the building.
The railroad car contains memorabilia from the 1950s. Strange noises have been heard at this location. On January 22, 2009, an employed observed a full-bodied apparition of a woman next to the railroad car. Surveillance tapes are being reviewed to see if the apparition was "seen" by the camera.
The spirit of a woman named Fay has been detected at this dresser. Jeff Dwyer communicated with her and learned that she kept valuable papers, money, and a gun in the top middle drawer. Fay remains attached to the dresser because she believes her valuable papers are still in the drawer.
When this drawer is pulled open, a small but intense draft of cool air emerges.
