Inhuman

Inhuman

2020-10-2835:201

What comes to mind when I say the word “ghost”? For most people, a ghost is the spirit of a person who has passed. But ghosts are not limited to that one definition. They can be an energy stealing force, the personification of unresolved trauma, or the representation of our mental state. In this episode, I’ll be sharing real stories from real people who have encountered these types of inhuman ghosts. First, I read the story of a witch who was in a budding relationship that was more than toxic. Then, we’ll hear of a mysterious entity that’s been following someone around for years. And finally, I speak with a man who seems to attract spirits of all kinds. Chapter 1: His Little Devil, by Hiro Chapter 2: Followed, by Jackknife Chapter 3: What I Saw In The Darkness, with Ziek Martinez Check out Ziek's band Frantic Romantic https://franticromanticmusic.com/ https://m.facebook.com/FranticRomanticMusic408/ http://instagram.com/franticromanticmusic --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/storieswithsapphire/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/storieswithsapphire/support
Strangers In My Home

Strangers In My Home

2020-10-2129:07

There is nothing more classically horror than a haunted house. The thought of your safe space being invaded by an otherworldly force is enough to make anyone lose sleep. This week’s episode is dedicated to those who have had to deal with uninvited house guests. First, I speak with a woman who kept finding things in her apartment rearranged every time she would return home. Then, we’ll learn about a man named Mr. Smith. And finally, we’ll visit a home in Michigan with a restless presence.

Welcome back to Stories With Sapphire! I’d like to begin this short and sweet season by sharing the enlightening experiences of Nida: a yoga therapist, psychiatrist, and psychic.

What Happens At Night

What Happens At Night

2020-07-1525:271

When the sun goes down and the moon controls the sky, it’s almost as if the rules of our physical world change. In this week’s episode, I share stories of the unexplainable things that can happen at night. First, a young man tries to astral project for the first time. Then, I speak with a man who had one of the most bizarre childhood experiences I’ve heard. And finally, I share a heartwarming story of a woman who receives a message from her friend in a dream. Chapter 1: Out of body, out of mind, by Mike Nevada Chapter 2: How did we get here?

We are visitors, passing through locations and through people’s lives. This week’s episode is about the visits that have a life changing impact on us. First, I speak with Brian J. Cano, paranormal investigator, about the most terrifying place he’s ever visited. After that, I speak with a friend who was visited by mysterious lights in the desert. And finally, Shelby Scott, host of "Scare You To Sleep", tells her experience of passing through the Vicksburg battlefield. Chapter 1: The Grand Midway Hotel, with Brian J.

I’d always known that my great grandfather, Marciano Calderon (Mars for short) died in World War 2, but I didn’t know much else. Then, when I was texting my mom about my podcast, she asked if she ever told me the story of how they found Lolo Mars’ body. She hadn't, and so my mom reached out to her aunt (my Lola Terrie) to make sure she had all the details right. Then, she emailed me my great grandmother’s memoir page by page, so I could also get her perspective of the story. And so, with my grandmother and Lola Terrie’s permission, I’d like to tell you a story of the brutality of war, and of my great grandfather’s last moments, as told by my great grandmother, with some edits for clarity.

There’s something about tattoos that provokes a strong reaction. Sometimes that reaction is admiration, for the pain tolerance of its wearer. Other times its aberration, disgust that anyone would taint their bodies in such a way. But for indigenous Filipinos, receiving batok (a traditional tattoo) was a spiritual event; a ceremony. In this episode, I want to undo any negative stereotypes surrounding tattoos by sharing its history beyond Western sensibilities, and speaking with Lane Wilcken, one of the very few recognized mambabatok (tattoo ritualists) in the world. He shares the cultural significance of batok, as well as the intense and sometimes disturbing paranormal encounters he’s had during ceremonies. Chapter 1: You Wanna Look Like A Gangbanger?

Whether domestic, wild, or spiritual, animals of all kinds play a huge role in our lives. In this week’s episode, I share my parents’ encounter with a spiritual bird, and I chat with Em Lock, better known as Emzotic, who not only has a terrifying paranormal experience but a vast well of animal knowledge that can teach us how to be more empathetic and open minded humans.

It's the endlessly debated topic: what actually happens when we die? We may never know for sure, but until then, all we have are stories - the experiences of those who have caught a glimpse of the other side. In this week’s episode, I’ll be sharing stories from my Tita (a nurse with an incredible gift) and psychic medium June Ahern, whose near death experience sent her on her spiritual path.

The first season finale of Stories With Sapphire is about the threats that are invisible to some, and painfully real to others.

The Women in White

The Women in White

We’re all familiar with the image - a woman in all white, with long hair covering her face. It’s common in movies and ghost stories - but why?

Supernatural occurrences often happen among those with whom we have close relationships, whether it’s our friends, significant others, or, most commonly, our family. What I love about these stories is that they reveal this unseen, unexplainable force that connects us. In this episode, you’ll meet sisters Brittany and Melissa, whose family communicates through symbols from the other side, as well as Jim Perry, host of the Euphomet podcast, whose relationship with the paranormal runs deep in his blood.

Just when I think I’ve heard it all,  I am always pleasantly thrilled when a story comes along that surprises me. That’s what today’s episode is about - people who have witnessed something that is difficult to categorize. Unexplainable things, that you may or may not heard of, that are possibly not of our world.  First, I welcome back Derek Hayes, host and creator of the Monsters Among Us podcast, as he describes a cryptid he witnessed as a child that set him on his paranormal journey. Then I chat with Susan Slaughter, paranormal investigator, as she describes her nocturnal visit from a hag. And finally, I speak with Mark Alan Miller, former Vice President of Seraphim, Clive Barker’s production company. I’ve been collecting ghost stories for years, and Mark’s is truly one of my favorites.
