Happy Spring! + New Layout

Image
Spring is here; that colorful time of the year when nature starts waking up once again. Flowers and trees start to blossom, the grass is greener and ladybugs appear to be just about everywhere. Nature waking up might remind us that we could make some positive changes as well.


Therefore, to fit in with the season, Mysteria Words is changing both the blog layout and the way things work around here. Mysteria Words will no longer be bound to only paranormal topics. Instead, I will be writing about anything and everything that might capture my attention at the moment and, let me tell you, my attention flies just about everywhere. Do not get me wrong, supernatural topics will still be a huge (and probably main) part of Mysteria Words since paranormal mysteries are one of my biggest interests. Therefore, let's embrace spring and embark on this new adventure!

Which blog design do you like better; old one or the new one? If you are a blogger yourself, Blogger platform added new templates …

5 Best Photos of Spirit Photography

With a development of technology, communication with the other side is no longer limited to Ouija boards and seances. Nowadays, one can simply snap a picture on their phone camera and, if you are lucky or unlucky, ghost might pop up in the background. However, spirit photography is not a new phenomenon; it dates back to the 19th century. It is safe to say that since the early days, fraud was very common when it came to paranormal; spirit photography included. Nowadays, not much had changed. Majority of ghost photos found online are completely fake, created for fun purposes. In the sea of frauds, it is getting harder to tell which photos are real and which ones are fake. Therefore, spirit photographs used in this article are ones with the most credibility; either for their back stories or their longevity and popularity.

Spirit photography is a type of photography whose main goal is to attempt to capture images of spirits as well as other paranormal entities. Spirit photography was first…

*REAL* Ouija Board Challenge (Satan answers) In the following video, Brookes decides to play an Ouija Board with her friend at an abandoned building.

EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) - Is It Really Paranormal?

<< EVP - BRIEF HISTORY
<< EVP - DEFINITION & CLASSIFICATION

Now we ask an old age question that comes along with anything unexplained; is it really paranormal? Believers theorize that it might be of a paranormal origin while debunkers are trying to find possible rational explanation for EVP. In the following text, we will discuss several theories on what an EVP could be, where could it come from therefore if the mysterious audio originates from beyond the grave or are we simply failing to see something rational.
VOICES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY
This is the most popular theory for the recordings which contain mysterious and unexplained sounds and voices. This theory is so popular that a lot of researchers who investigate ghost phenomenon use EVP as a way of communicating with people who have crossed over. 

VOICES OF ANGELS AND DEMONS
Second theory is similar to the first one; receiving messages from other worlds. However, this theory suggests that some of these messages …

EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) - Brief History

Image
<< DEFINITION & CLASSIFICATION

THOMAS EDISON & THE EVP The idea of recording a ghost voice was first introduced in 1920's when Thomas Edison himself tried to invent a machine that would communicate with the dead. Edison believed that our personality might survive the death of the body as well as that we might be able to record something otherworldly only if we could create a delicate enough machine. Obviously, Edison never succeeded in his invention, but his idea lives on.


OVER A HUNDRED SPIRIT RECORDINGS One of the early enthusiasts in recording ghost voices was an American photographer, Attila von Szalay. His attempts begun in the late 1930's, than continued through 1940's as well as 1950's. He had recorded many sounds and voices through years of his research. Although many argued mysterious voice recordings were actually random radio broadcasts that were accidentally picked up, this criticism was quickly and easily answered. Some of the recorded voices spo…

EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon)

Image
Voices of the dead are captured in an audio recording. In layman's terms, Electronic voice phenomenon is supposed to be exactly that; recorded voices from the afterlife. According to Wikipedia, electronic voice phenomenon or, shortly, EVP are sounds found on electronic recordings that are interpreted as spirit voices and might be intentionally or unintentionally recorded. 

DEFINITION & CLASSIFICATION
As mentioned, Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) is a sound or a voice which appears on a recording but has no known or scientific explanations for being recorded. Therefore, the sound or a voice is not heard during the recording session. Instead, it is heard later upon the reviewing of the tape. Mostly, such mysterious sounds are attributed to the spirit world since no known explanations could seemingly be found.
EVP varies from one to another; it could be an unfamiliar sound or an actual voice of a known or unknown person. The voice can vary in gender, tone, emotion or age; the voic…

Friday the 13th - Where Does It Come From?

Image
Friday the 13th is considered as one of the scariest dates of the year in the Western culture, making it the biggest competitor to Halloween. Friday the 13th is so infamous that not even Hollywood has not missed a chance to cash on by filming one of the greatest horror classics of all time and naming it Friday the 13th. What it is about that day that made it so infamous? Let's find out!
To start with, Friday the 13th occurs whenever the 13th of the month in Gregorian calendar falls on Friday. This happens every year at least once, however it could occur up to tree times a year.  As mentioned, in Western civilizations, Friday the 13th is considered to be quite an unlucky day. Why is it considered unlucky? Well, the origins are actually pretty unclear. According to ibtimes.com, there are no written evidence about Friday the 13th before the 19th century which makes the unlucky day relatively new. However, the fear of the number 13, which is directly connected to the Friday the 13th, c…

Mysterious Black Object Orbiting the Earth?

Image
Mysterious black object was detected orbiting around Earth, therefore giving it a title of a satellite. The mystery was created due to the speculation that the object is neither of human or natural origin. So, where did it come from? Naturally, people started to theorize that the unusual black satellite might be of an extraterrestrial origin.  The satellite was appropriately named the Black Knight.
Allegedly, the first person to detect the Black Knight was a scientist Nikola Tesla himself. Rumors have it that Tesla received strange signals in 1899. Nowadays, it is theorized that the strange signals Nikola Tesla heard were actually coming from no other but the mysterious satellite. However, it was not until 1940's when the satellite finally got its recognition. The Black Knight satellite has been transmitting signals for over 50 years now.  As of now, NASA managed to photograph the mysterious satellite weighing at least 10 tons several times. Sadly, it is believed that the Black Knig…

The Pact: "Is There Anything After Death?"

Image
Everyone will eventually start to debate on the meaning of life which mostly leads to the never answered question: Is there afterlife? The following story started in the same tone when two friends started talking about the afterlife. Interestingly, one of the woman appeared to get her answers. 
THE STORY To start with, I have heard this story from my grandmother and she heard it from a friend a while back. It is a story of two neighbors who eventually got so close that they became best friends. Once, the two friends were having a deep conversation bringing up the provocative questions including the meaning of life. Eventually, the conversation took a turn on afterlife. They were trying to figure out if there is anything after death. As usual, they could not get to the bottom of this topic. In conclusion to the discussion, the two woman decided to make a pact. In order for them to get the answers from beyond the grave, both promised that the first one out of two of them that dies will le…
