Imagine waking in the middle of the night unable to move a muscle, and feeling or see the presence of something malevolent either in your room, or sitting on your chest. You try to scream for help, but no sound escapes your lips. After what seems like eternity the presence and feeling of being paralysed suddenly stops as quickly as it started. You lay there terrified and confused about what just happened. You have just experienced what has many names in different countries and cultures throughout the world - Riding the Witch, Night terrors, The old hag syndrome - or the more modern term of Sleep paralysis Around 7.6% of the world's population will experience at least one episode of Sleep Paralysis in their lives. But for some unfortunate people this is a recurrent happening in their lives. Medical Scientist say it can easily be explained away as a neurophysiological event - BUT, does that preclude it from being a spiritual event as well? Listen to this weeks episode and decide for yourself. --- Send in a voice message:
Are Ouija boards merely a game with very clever marketing? Or are they actually a door through which your worst nightmare could step? And if they are, then one would have to suppose that the “ghost boxes’ and other forms of communication with the spirit world are actually the same, or rather could produce the same results? In this episode we look at a brief history of how ouija boards came about and share some very disturbing experiences people have had using them.  --- Send in a voice message:
Picture this: You are asleep in bed, it's 2am. Suddenly you are woken by the sound of persistent knocking on your front door, rubbing the sleep from your eyes you go to the door and open it. To your surprise you see two wee children standing on your doorstep. It's the middle of winter, but these kids are dressed in inadequate clothing for the weather. Looking at them you are overcome by an irrational and unexplainable terror. Despite that, your concern for the kids overrides your fears and you ask them what they want and where are their parents? They ask if they can be let in so they can phone them. And then they look up at you and to your horror their eyes are completely black, no whites, no colour whatsoever. Your impulse is to slam the door shut, but inexplicably and against your will, you notice you are actually opening it further. Black-eyed kids. What are they? Where do they come from? What do they want? Are they real or simply an urban legend? In this episode we'll hear theories and experiences from those who have witnessed these enigmatic and strange looking children.  --- Send in a voice message:
Episode 50: Tyler's Return

Episode 50: Tyler's Return


Losing someone we love is a very painful, very difficult and heartbreaking journey. There are so many questions we are left with.... The least of which is do they continue on?  If they do, can they let us know they are still around us? And are they aware of our pain at their loss? Do they know how much we love them?  Deb., tells us all about experiences she had for the period of 18 months following the death of her then, young (27 year old) husband. How her place was 'haunted' by him but it is not in the least scary. It's a love story, touching and very raw, of how love transcends death and how life continues after this existence. Even now 16 years afterwards, the pain is still raw for her. --- Send in a voice message:
Have you ever heard of the Australian Yowie? Cousin to the Sasquatch, or Bigfoot. Join my guest author and Yowie investigator Tony Healy as he discusses his experiences interviewing witnesses of the elusive creature.  This episode is longer than normal at around one and half hours.

Death, the final frontier – to change a quote from an old TV series, if you’re a trekie, then you will know it. But is death the final frontier, the end of us? Or is it just the end of our physical body, the vehicle that we currently use? Like with the victims of Spontaneous Human Combustion in our last episode? What do you think? In this episode I discuss ways our loved ones who have passed over may try to let us know that they are still around us. Still living, albeit in another reality, another form. And I, amongst others, share  personal experiences. See you then. --- Send in a voice message:
Imagine if you will, simply sitting down to have a cup of tea, or sitting with a friend preparing for a fishing trip, when with no external heat source your body simply bursts into flames, burning you from inside of your body to the outside? Would you even feel the flames? Would you be aware that this was happening to you? And even if you were, could you do anything about it?  Or imagine that you are a witness to such an episode? How would you react? What would you do? These are the situations that this episode confronts. This episode is about the phenomena of Spontaneous Human Combustion, and shares witnessed and documented real-life accounts of people who have perished in this manner and a few rare, very lucky people who had this happen to them, but survived to share their experiences. --- Send in a voice message:
If you saw the Matrix movie starring Keanu Reeves, then you may recall a scene when Neo is with all the crew in the matrix, when they are awakening him, and he looks into the hall and in front of the stair case a black cat walks past, left to right. Immediately it does the same thing. When Neo comments on this the crew members recognized that it was a Glitch in the programming of the matrix, causing that scene to repeat itself. In the movie they could explain what happened. But, how do you deal with events like that happening in this reality, in your day to day life?  This is the situation my guests in this episode found themselves in. Experiences that happened in their lives that they cannot rationalize or explain away. Experiences that have left many of them questioning the nature of this reality. Questioning what is reality? How would you respond to such an event?   --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode I take a close look at what have commonly become referred to as "glitches in the matrix" after that famous Matrix movie starring Keanu Reeves.  These are experiences that have left people scratching their heads and  wondering what just happened to them. With no logical explanation that  can be found for it. I take a very brief excursion into the world of holograms, and the holographic universe theory.  Of quantum physics and the brightest brains in these areas in the  world, who suggest that this world is, in fact, a holographic reality. I  look at the Mandela Effect and how living in a holographic reality that has parallel dimensions  could possibly explain this. And I  have experiences that people like  you have had, that they simply cannot explain. As Elon Musk says: “There is a ONE in a billion chance that we might NOT be living in a simulation.” --- Send in a voice message:
Imagine, you are a young woman, in your early 30's who has just faced  a series of three life threatening strokes. So bad, that you have had  to completely learn to talk again. Then imagine that one night when you  are at home healing and  struggling to recover your literal voice, that  you get this compulsive urge to go outside and look at the night skies.   You don't know why you have this urge, but it is utterly compelling and  so you go outside and look up at the night skies. . . . And that is the  beginning of almost nightly visitations of unexplained lights and  crafts moving in the night skies. How would you feel if this happened to you? Would you feel like you  were going crazy? Like it was some kind of side effect from your  strokes? Or even worse, that you might be having another? This is my guest Bonnie's on going experiences. Bonnie lives in  Texas, in the USA and kindly shares her experiences with us. She talks  about how they have changed her life and how she is able to capture  these craft in photos almost every single night. --- Send in a voice message:
Imagine that you are a military service person, on active duty and  during a routine naval exercise. That the role of your ship is to  protect the naval fleet from air attacks. Imagine then that during this  routine exercise some unidentified objects show themselves on your  radars, which is the highest quality and most recent tech available.  These object show themselves in groups of up to ten at a time. For days  this happens. The systems are taken down and recalibrated in case they  are showing errors, but returned showing the objects in sharper detail.  Finally the commander of the strike group sends jet fighters to  intercept these AAV or Anomalous Aerial Vehicles as the Navy calls  them. The first group goes up and the commander of that flight crew has a  very close encounter with one of them, returns to base. A second flight  crew is sent up and this time they are able to capture this object which  was nicknamed the 'Tic-Tac' object due to its shape. A video of part of  this incident was  ‘leaked’ to the world and has been the subject of  intense speculation  since. In part one of two episodes I discuss these events and have a very  special guests in both episodes. My first guest in this episode, Gary Voorhis was  one of the crewmen on board the USS Princeton at the time of the  incidents and saw the actual UFOs through the ships 'Big Eyes"  binoculars whilst on board the ship. He shares what his role was on the  ship and his experiences of these objects and what happened after --- Send in a voice message:
Shadow People. What are they? Where do they come from? Shadow people are a very common phenomenon, where people see these dark black, generally human shaped forms. Darker than the night around them. Some of these figures have glowing  red, green, or yellow eyes. Some are seen wearing hats, or carrying  something. Some are more solid than the wall they are in front of. Some  have really whispy, foggy edges..... But what do they want from us? Join me as we explore the history, and myths around these beings and  hear real experiences from people who have witnessed them for  themselves. Myself included. Website: --- Send in a voice message:
Old  buildings, deserted for many years. Or relatively new buildings, both  homes and businesses, or medical institutions and even land, have been  known to have ghostly inhabitants. Inhabitants that can scare and  disturb the people who currently live, or work in these places. Because  of this, there are a rare group of people who make it their mission to  seek out such places, such haunted locations. There can be many reasons  for this. My  guest tonight James Gilberd., is one such person. I have been following James' Paranormal Investigation group (Spooked: New Zealand Strange Occurrences Society) and page for some time, partly because of professional courtesy, as I also run my own paranormal investigation group, called Shadowlands Paranormal Investigations. And, simply because I like and really appreciate his approach to this work and his dry sense of humour. James talks about his experiences as a paranormal investigator and about the book he co-authored with Dr. Jo Davy, about his groups experiences. --- Send in a voice message:
In this two-part episode my former guest Gary Cook returns to talk with us about his ongoing research with plants and how  we and nature are totally interconnected on so many levels. He discusses  how plants communicate with each other, as has been discovered in  recent scientific research. Gary is a very well known New Zealand and Internationally published author, favourite guest lecturer and documentary maker.  And, he talks in his beautiful, rambling way, sharing his  experiences as he talks, about how nature is such a vital part of our  life and how we as a species have become plant blind. How we rarely even  notice the plants that are around us any more. He discusses how plants  not only communicate with each other, but can communicate with us as  well. --- Send in a voice message:
New Zealand is a small country in the South Pacific, for those who   don’t know us. Comprising of two main Islands, the North and the South   Islands. We are the last stop, and the main gateway to most countries  in  the world who have bases in the Antarctic. So geographically we are a   fairly isolated country, however, our isolation does not preclude us   from our fair share of UFO sightings and encounters….  This episode is  about our most famous sighting. One that made the news all over the  world and is widely regarded as being in the world's top ten credible,  filmed UFO encounters. In this episode I  go over a timeline of the events on both nights  and basic rundown of the over all events. Also, I am very thrilled to  have one of the last surviving professional witnesses to those  encounters. My guest is a gentleman, now in his late eighties, who was  on duty and in control of the Wellington  Air Traffic Control Center at  the time of these incidents. He is so kind as to share his recollection  of the events with us all. His name is John Cordy.  John shares with us  his recollections of how the events unfolded and the ongoing effect this  has had on his life --- Send in a voice message:
When you hear the words "The Men-in-Black" some of you will immediately, in your mind,  hear that catchy tune sung by Will Smith. Or think of the movie of  the same name. For some people however, the fact that a movie was  created from real-life events and beings does not escape notice,  particularly if you have had the experience of meeting such beings.  These meetings sometimes, but not always, follow encounters of whatever  description, with UFOs or UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon), which is  the preferred term used these days. We live in a very mysterious world, and there’s so very much that we   don’t understand about it. And, that is just on this planet…. But, we   also live in a universe that for those of us who are experiencers, know   is teaming with life. There are many things that happen here that just   don’t make any sort of sense at all.  Some say that The Men-in-Black  belong in the don't make any sense category. What or who are they? Where  do they come from? What is their purpose? In this episode I explore the myths and the realities of these  encounters and beings. I personally had an encounter with these beings  the day after a close UFO encounter. I share my story with you in this  episode, along with the experiences shared by many other people. --- Send in a voice message:
Forestry is one of New Zealand's main export industries, and so we  have many, many small and large crews working in the the bush, as we say  here in New Zealand. Very often these work sites are deep into the  forest lands and quite isolated from near by towns or cities. Some even  hours of driving away. Their very geographical isolation causes these  groups, who generally camp on the worksite in these cases, to become a  tight, close knit working whanau, or family. Sometimes the world of us humans and the world of the Elemental,  interdimensional beings clash, as in this case. What happens then? Is  this a good experience for the human, or is it possibly not?  And what  would you do if you were in such a situation, where you came  across  such a being? How would you react? What would you do? And, how would  this be experienced for you? My guest in this episode has requested to remain anonymous and I have  respected their wish. This guest shares their experiences with us, that  happened whilst they were working deep within the heart of a specific  area of the New Zealand forest. --- Send in a voice message:
Imagine being 19 years old. In the US Military, a member of the  military police force. In a foreign country. Your base is on lock down  due to some unknown activity and you are assigned to guard the East gate  of your base. Whilst doing so, you come face to face with something  completely out of this world, literally. How would you cope at the time?  What would you do afterwards? How would it affect the rest of your  life? And then the following night another incident occurs that you  witness, how would that shatter your paradigms of reality? These are the actual events that happened to my guest M. Stacy Smith in 1980. During what has become one of the world's most famous UFO incidents. Called the  Rendlesham Forest incident. My guest was based on the Bentwaters,  base on England’s East Coast. Stacy has never before come forward publically to speak about his  experiences on those nights, but he is doing so for the very first time  with me. And what a story it is. . . . --- Send in a voice message:
