Growing up as the youngest child in my family, I had sisters who loved to scare me. After I went running and screaming from their mischief, I would always come back for more.
My favorite stories have always been about "true ghost stories". To have the chance to investigate the paranormal for myself has been a life long dream.
I believe people when they tell me about an experience. But I also try to find a non-paranormal cause for it. I have seen what I thought was good evidence explained away. But I have also seen and heard things I can't explain yet. I choose to be open to all possibilities. It makes the world a much more interesting place.
My ultimate paranormal investigation would be the White House. You know there has to be paranormal stuff going on there.

Hi, I am Julie Jones from Preston, Idaho. I grew up in Tremonton, Utah. Paranormal activity has been an interest of mine since I was young. Many times I have felt energy around me and since about the age of 13 I have had several experiences with shadow people that have terrified me. I have seen apparitions my whole life and have accepted them without fear. However, I am curious as to why they show themselves to me. I believe there is a reason they present themselves to me, possibly they want my help.
I have experienced evil presences and other spirits that felt like they wanted my help in their journey to the other side. I don’t know why spirits are attracted to me, but I feel comfortable with their presence.
My dream investigation would be at my family cabin near Bear Lake. I have felt my Dad’s presence there many times. I would love to make contact.
For as long as I can remember I have had interactions with spirits. These interactions could take place at home or at other people’s houses. Because of the disbelief of my ability to interact with spirits, I have been shunned by my friends and their parents. I have actually been sent home from sleepovers because I told the families about the ghosts I could see in their homes. As you can imagine, this would make my Mom very mad – you wouldn’t like her mad!
My very first experience with a ghost took place when I was still small enough to sleep in a crib. I told my mom there was a little boy in my room at night. It would make me so mad to watch him play with my toys while I was stuck in my crib! When I told my Mom about this, she told me that I needed to learn to share my toys. After that, I was okay with the little boy playing with my toys.
My dream investigation would be the castles of

Hello, I am Brett. I was born and raised in here inUtah . I am 27 looking to be 28 soon lol. I love the paranormal and have always been interested in it. I love to help people that don’t understand the paranormal or understand why something happens that can’t be explained. I love being a part of U&IP; we are a great team that truly enjoys helping people. I am what most would call an “Energy Worker”. I work with the energy that is the life source of you and me and every living or once living thing on this earth. Anything that has an energy source I can work with. What I do is collect energy from sources such as you or I and can do many things with it like “turn them”. Turning energy is when one takes negative energy and turns it into positive energy and then sends it back to its source. That process can help people and other things on many levels, whether physically or mentally. The energy that I use also contains bits of information (similar to DNA) everyone has a slightly different energy. I can use the information that is collected in the energy to look into your life. I can see what things you have been through and I can feel your emotions. Whether alive or dead, the energy is the same; this is how I help U&IP. I am able to help them find out what energies are around if they are good or bad, and what they are doing there. After all, they were just like us at one time.

Growing up in Washington State , I of course wanted to find big Foot. Big Foot proved to be too elusive for me and I never found any sign or actually saw the big guy. My nights consisted of watching the stars looking for a UFO. I saw tons of planes but just like Big Foot, the UFO experience eluded me. My favorite TV shows were anything with science fiction, and monsters. I loved staying up late watching a monster movie and being too afraid to go to sleep.
Of all the movies and books I would read about science fiction or the supernatural, nothing caught my attention like a ghost story. Stories about ghosts would crank up the adrenalin and make me incredibly jumpy – I loved it!
Paranormal research gives me the same excitement as the stories and movies did when I was younger. Every EVP, every captured anomaly in a picture, every unexplained piece of video is like finding a gem while digging through sand. The journey and the destination are both fascinating!
My ultimate paranormal investigation would be to search for paranormal activity on the Moon. The light side and the dark side, you have to do the dark side.
