Website, Forum & Link Exchange

CVAPI's website has been under construction for the last few weeks.  The new website should launch in the next few
days, offering easier navigation to the site, and supporting all smartphones.  Meanwhile there are many links on the
site currently that are not functioning.  Also, we have run into a problem with our link exchange, loosing many of the
links.  If you have us linked, or are interested in a link exchange please email me at Jackie@cvapi.com.
CVAPI's forum has varying topics and a lot of heavy traffic.  Due to other projects I have indeed let the forum fall by
the wayside.  We will begin adding new topics and continue to move forward so please feel free to register and join
us on our forum.

RIP Critics Credibility

Nine months ago, CVAPI conducted the investigation at the Maitland Family home in Chester, Virginia. Though CVAPI
or the Maitland family has not bought this up for weeks, the critics are still screaming.

Exactly who are these critics? This is the question we are asked constantly. From the best that we can tell they are
“Paranormal Bashers”. Or in a nutshell, they are nobodies screaming for the publics attention as they are “Know it all’
s” in the field of the paranormal, demonology and working with producers.

On NUMEROUS occasions, I have invited them to pick up the phone and speak to me directly, to which none of them
will. They seem to see it as MUCH easier to talk crap on the web without validating anything from the “True sources”.

One of the sites that continue to bash Demon Exorcist is Scifake. Fake is correct, from what we have seen everything
posted there is on speculation and opinions. If you want to know more about them google Ron Tebo, this will explain
the credibility of this character. (Though now he has become a magician http://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=WHEWlji2gD0) Though he has indeed offered a “weak” apology to Sarah Maitland, he did not hesitate to exploit
her children. A nice demonstration of how much time and effort they will put into us can be found here: (http://scifake.
com/wp-content/forum-media-uploads/jetson/demon-screamers.wmv)
The most recent is Kirby Robinson, from Eyeontheparanormal. What a clown this one is. Kirby has been invited to
call me directly; I have offered a recorded interview, and any questions I ask him he has indeed evaded. One of the
questions I have asked him is “What is your title”? Meaning what do you do? If Dwayne is a demonologist what do you
do? Are you unemployed? Are you a blogger?

This is what we have found to be true. He is indeed a blogger and promotes the affiliates program on his blog. (He
makes pennies for each time you click on it.) And more so than anything he is a “Paranormal Basher”. (http://www.
psiro.com/index.php/articles/opinion-a-debate/115-a-response-to-kirby-robinson.html)

On March 5, 2011 Kirby himself did a radio show interview promoting his self-published book on some of his bashing.
(http://www.blogtalkradio.com/claranormal/2011/03/06/author-kirby-robinson-talks-about-his-new-book-paranormal-
reality-investigating-paranormal-state) He begins by stating that he is not there to bash anyone’s personal lives. In
this case that is untrue. They have been all over Sarah Maitland about medical records and exploiting her children.
Kirby’s defense is that we made this public record by going on TV with her story. In this radio show he speaks of his
“Painstaking analysis” and has “Validated” claims by “Confidential sources.” (Who really cares what time the clock on
the wall states and what went on behind the scenes on Paranormal State? Are you that nosey?) He also commends
Chip Coffee, states that they mistreated Chip Coffee, and he has no issues with the show Psychic Kids. (Funny how
his blog bashes all of this.) It appears that there is an issue of keeping his story straight.

So now, lets talk about what we know from first hand experience. “Validating claims by confidential sources.” Some of
their “Confidential sources” are ex members of CVAPI. Meaning they are no longer affiliated with us due to lack of
professionalism. Those that have been following this saw this on a comment posted on one of my Examiner articles to
Sarah Maitland directly, to which my editor removed. These ex members were indeed at the investigation of the
Maitland case. They had NO PROBLEMS with screaming it was demonic during evidence review, willingly participated
in recruiting a demonologist, and “Claimed” to have bought something home with them, in which was filmed by
Firecracker Films. They have no children of their own, do not even like children, and are now “Concerned” about the
Maitland family children. Not to mention that they acted “Horrified” that the children were on the program, when they
KNEW the camera crew was with them for days. These are some of their “Confidential sources”.
From the radio show we have found what they said about Kirby:

-25 years in the paranormal field

-Performed numberous house blessings and exorcisms

-Spent much of his time helping people with demonic hauntings.

-Claims to be a Buddist.
-Self published a book bashing Paranormal State

So I have to ask….WHO wants to be on television? WHO is keeping this story alive without contacting the REAL
sources? And WHO continuously brings up Dwayne going to series, book deals and movie deals?

I am personally glad that we found Dwayne. He stepped up to bat when no one else would. At that time, the Maitland
family was ready to walk away from their home permanently. I can honestly say that without Dwayne’s help, they may
have.

The transformation that I have personally seen in the entire family is phenomenal, they are all doing well and I will
bring you a follow up with them soon. Do we support Dwayne going to series? YES. If he is HELPING families instead
of writing crap about them on the web, who cares what television does?????

There are 4 TRUE sources to Demon Exorcists, “The Black Shadow”….FIRECRACKER FILMS, DWAYNE CLAUD,
JACKIE TOMLIN and SARAH MAITLAND. We have all moved on….it is a shame these idiots cannot.

Location Release

You will notice on our website, that there are various locations listed.  Some are listed as Private Residence, and the
county that they are in.  Others may have more description behind them, such as an intersection, subdivision or area
they are in.  This is the decision of the homeowner and/or business owner.
Part of the paperwork between our clients and CVAPI, is how any information will be released on the web.  Though
we do not disclose direct addresses, a lot of them are opting to put a little more information up, in hopes that others
in their area will come forward as well.

Psychics Scamming Paranormal Investigators on Blogtalk

Paranormal Teams, beware.  The latest psychic scam has arrived.  We have been approached by a psychic with a
"featured radio show" on Blogtalk radio.  They are asking that you "pay" a fee to be a guest on their show as well as
offering advertising on their blogtalk site.  First of all, you should never PAY to be on ANY radio show.  
To add to thier "hype" they are including some well known names that they say have appeared on their radio show.  
When browsing through their past shows podcasts, I was unable to find that any of these people ever appeared on
their show.
I did indeed approached them as to if they were seeking funds for their personal gain.  This is the copy of the
response that I recieved:

"No its not financial gain, its to keep the show on the air and this show has helped so many people, we have helped
people even as far as stopping them from committing suicide. All of my guest have been more then happy to help the
show, as they know how much the show helps people, they get to help when they are on and many listeners go them
privately for help! "

Okay, were do I start here...
First of all psychics do not offer medical or legal advice.  To proclaim that you have assisted anyone from committing
suicide is just wrong.  And yes, I agree that many shows are informative and help listeners in many ways.  But in
reality....if you cannot afford your radio show GET OFF THE AIR, or downgrade to a free show, since you obviously
have such a strong following.

First video blog.  Meet my daughter "Nikki", age 22 and a member of CVAPI.


The one thing she did forget to ask me was about the documentary on the Maitland Family.  It would have been no
different than what you are seeing.  Them on camera telling their entire story as "Damage Control".  The rumors that
have surfaced over that documentary are laughable at best.


I am most certain that our "Bashers" will have their own thoughts and opinions on the video, so let me make this very
clear.....we DO NOT CARE.


To our friends, many, many "fake profiles" have surfaced on Facebook.  Some we know who they are and they have
been deleted and blocked.  Some of those fake profiles we have kept for entertainment purposes.  Be very careful
when adding a friend that is a mutual friend of ours!


All in all, you know what they say...."When given enough rope, one will hang themselves."

Sad but true...(Beware Richmond area paranormal teams!)

Well we have recieved word that this certain person has pulled Sarah's story. However, they have now put their full
focus on me. (Top page news...whoohooo) However, his informant has been revealed to me. So local paranormal
teams beware. (nothing like one informant ratting out another and sending me the emails.) This person is local, on a
paranormal team, involved with a couple of others and Meetup. Jealousy CANNOT possibly begin to describe this
person. Want a front page story...start digging into your informant's background. There is a reason why they are not
affiliated with CVAPI.
As far as this basher, as stated earlier in my Facebook status..."Like birds of a feather, psychos stick together!"
These two offset each other nicely as both have no real job to speak off and are dieing for recognition.
Now I want call this low life out by name....but let me give you a hint....
The proper way to spell PSYCHIC is just that .... NOT PHYSIC!
And oh yeah, there were 3 initials that CVAPI used to use on our team....The team they are on is named after that.
As stated yesterday, this is stalking at its best. It has nothing to do with the Maitland family, Dwayne Claud, or the
Demon Exorcist.
Sorry guys, I still won't give you any media attention!

Lots of Traffic...

Well the stats show that the blog traffic has definitely increased, imagine that. I would like to thank our supporters in
"digging up the dirt" on one of our so called bashers as this has given me a good laugh. It does appear to be true
that people will talk ABOUT you when they can't get any recognition of their own. Never met him, never even heard of
him, kind of seems like a stalker wouldn't you say? Some that know this person first hand have said he has that
stance in the media world. Maybe that is why his interview wasn't aired? (But yet, says I'm looking for recognition, lol)
Just my opinion of course.
Speaking of media, NO I would never mention this person. Why? Because this is what he wants, lol. The ones that
deserve the media recognition are the Maitland family for the hell they have been through.

Feeling the love...

I would like to start with a huge THANK YOU, to our friends, clients and para celebs for your outpour of support. It is
apparant that our supporters out weight our bashers! The same with the psychic community from my psychic friends,
clients and celebrity clients, thank you for your kind words and support.
It has amazed me as to how myself, Dwayne and the Maitland Family, have become on alltime consuming obsession
with some of these bashers. To the point, that not only can they NOT go a 24 hour period without emailing me, but
indeed email us every 6 to 8 hours!
I also like the apologetic approach in asking us to dig dirt up on one another. THIS MAKES ME LAUGH! (Yep, some
have definitly thrown the crazy switch!)
Maybe I should give them credit as professionals by publishing their emails? Where the public can see them cussing
at us, calling us names, and threatening us?
Do not bother posting your deragatory comments here, as it is my blog and they will be removed.
I must say that I am completely flattered that I now consume your entire day and evenings. Hmmmm....MUST BE
DOING SOMETHING RIGHT!
To those bashers I have to ask WHERE IS YOUR PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION? Because I have the Maitlands...

Animal Planet's Demon Exorcist: The bashing continues...

It is truly disheartening to see the bashing that continues on the Maitland family and Dwayne Claud after the airing of
Demon Exorcist. Those that are quick to bash, do not have the full story of the Maitland case. As mentioned in an
Examiner article, CVAPI will work with the Maitland family on a documentary to get their story out there in its entirety.
First of all, I would like to say that this is NOT the first case that CVAPI has had that is similar to their story. A strict
protocol is followed and pursued on these cases, as it is much more than an investigation. CVAPI does not go into a
home or business to “prove” a haunting. The definition of the paranormal simply means the “unexplained”. The
investigation did prove just that. The documentary will air the actual time stamped footage of a hand that appears to
be inhuman.
Secondly, I hate repeating myself, but in lieu of the bashing, I find that it is necessary. Sarah Maitland had contacted
CVAPI several months prior to the investigation. CVAPI moved forward with this case once the family fell under
physical attack and hospitalizations were mentioned.
Sarah and Toby Maitland have been completely honest with CVAPI and Dwayne Claud into their families past. This
includes providing their medical information as well as their psychiatric evaluations. Anyone out there that knows
ANYTHING at all about demonology can tell you that most have suffered from a psychological experience, and in
certain cases this can lead to bringing the negativity into you. CVAPI also has a child counselor onboard this team
that could testify that the family was still in need of assistance.
There also appears to be a question about the Electronic Magnetic Fields of the location (EMF’s). These were
checked several times by CVAPI as well as Dwayne Claud’s team, and I might add that Toby Maitland himself is an
electrician.
The footage from the investigation validated a lot of what the family was reporting having us seek out a demonologist.
I have personally received numerous emails asking why didn’t I contact this person or that person. In actuality, those
people you are questioning about were indeed contacted. NONE of them bothered to respond, leaving me with the
impression that if a television camera or money wasn’t involved, it was a waste of their time.
Equally disturbing was input from two past “rookies” of CVAPI voicing their input to the Maitland family. One of these
two claimed that they were not psychic but could “read people” when in actuality it is called “judging” people. As my
daughter had stated, “It is partially to blame for their lack of professionalism as to why they are no longer members of
CVAPI.” This is a classic syndrome of two rookies that now know what an orb is and can crop and EVP and feel they
are paranormal experts. They indeed had little knowledge on demonology but willingly participated on this case.
These two rank right up there with the ones that are bashing the Maitland family and Dwayne across the Internet.
In addition, to the emails I am receiving questioning our selection in demonologist I am receiving emails from
psychologist proclaiming to be “concerned” for the Maitland family. They have gone as far as to dig up stuff from
2006 on the family and send to us. To this I say …..REALLY? You are several months behind as we were aware of
everything several months ago. Do you not have anything better to do with your time? If not, let me make a
recommendation for you. Offer your assistance to other paranormal teams, as these cases do surface. There are
many families out there in need of help that have no one. Why don’t you put your focus there instead of antagonizing
the Maitland family?
Next are the emails regarding Firecracker Films. As stated before, CVAPI and the Maitland family all enjoyed working
with Firecracker Films. There was a discrepancy in what aired and that was discussed between the Maitland Family
and Firecracker Films. In their defense, they agreed that their story would have made a full hour series. It was the
Discovery Channel that would not allow it. (Get it right people, Animal Planet is owned by Discovery.) Their guidelines
have changed several times from how many cases per show, to how many shows etc. They are doing what is asked
of them. Unfortunately due to these time constraints, the whole story did not surface, just a briefing to show whom
Dwayne is.
Now regarding Dwayne, both CVAPI and the Maitland family gave credit where credit was due. He listened and he
helped. (Which is a lot more than I can say for those sitting around running their mouths on forums.) What you do not
know is that I attended the house clearing with Dwayne Claud to present a unified front to the Maitland family, which
included a discussion with Sarah that the majority of this would be up to her. In addition he lined up local counselors
for the family while he was here.
Now I would like to discuss the emails that I am receiving about Dwayne and his wife Sarah. These are regarding past
cases they have worked etc. To this I have to ask…..THIS CONCERNS ME HOW? CVAPI followed their protocol with
a history pull, investigation, medical documentation provided, and clergy assisted prior to seeking out a
demonologist. Dwayne as a demonologist displayed nothing but professionalism to this team and to this family. What
did you do? What are you currently doing to assist other teams? Or are you one that spends your time bashing
everyone else?
Other questions that I have, to the demonologists that are contacting me….What are your credentials? Anyone ever
bashed you? To the psychologist out there….What are your credentials? What is your knowledge in
parapsychology? If you are so eager to help and be involved, are you currently assisting other paranormal teams?
To the scientist out there….Have you ever had a paranormal experience? Have you ever attended a paranormal
investigation? Are you open-minded enough to attend a paranormal investigation or is this beneath you?
Amazingly enough these bashers are also responsible for the bashing of Chip Coffee, Zak Bagans and many others.
Really people do you have nothing better to do? IF your legitimate concern is reality TV then I am to assume you also
have issues with shows like The Real Housewives or Top Chef. Are you bashing the people on the shows or are you
reaching out to the Networks that air them?
To these so-called bashers, professionals etc, since you obviously have all of the answers WHERE IS YOUR TV
SERIES? What is that? You don’t have one? Well let me tell you, IF you did, they would do the same thing to you as
they have to many others, there is but so much time to air things, and they are going for the ratings.
Ironically, what I find to be funny….You are keeping the Demon Exorcist alive and in the media, and on the internet,
which will boost the hell out of Dwayne’s ratings! (You know what they say, jealousy is the best form of flattery!)To the
demonologists, psychologists, scientists, and bashers, get involved in your local paranormal community and see if
you can find something productive to do in your spare time.

CVAPI's Case on the Animal Planet this Friday

One of our local cases in Chester Virginia will air this Friday night on the Animal Planet on a new show called the
Demon Exorcist with Dwayne Claud. This is one of our demonic cases in which we called Dwayne in.
Demonic cases are few and far between but do actually exist. In this particular case basically the whole family had
fallen under attack. I am hoping that they will do a great job in airing the nightmare they were living. The family
consented to go on the air with their story to help get the word out there as to what can happen and what people go
through.
The one hour show will air 3 of Dwayne's cases. Due to time constraints of a one hour show, the interviews with the
members of CVAPI were cut out. This is a shame however these guys put in a lot of hard work on this case. (120
hours in 5 days!)
Everyone on the team participated! They really came together to get answers for this family.
A big THANK YOU to Toby and Christian who participated in the investigation and evidence review. Also to Christian
for his insights as a child counselor. To Debbie for he help in researching the property and the tree in the backyard.
And to Nikki for the walk thru's, numerous notes and evidence review. You all made this happen!
This team stays busy and are always interested in new investigators that wish to join us. We first ask that your join us
on our meetup group at www.meetup.com/paranormalcvapi. Please note that we would not take you out on a demonic
case unless you wish to go through that training.

Leo Brown's Bio:
Leo Brown has always been a talker. Ever since he was a boy growing up in the Deep South. "I would always run my
mouth and tell people what I thought," he says. Though, some loved the fact that he was so open with his thoughts,
some people found him to be a bit of a loudmouth. "As I was growing up, I was thinking of ways to use this mouth I
had. I tried everything from customer service rep to selling medical insurance via phone. Nothing worked because I'd
end up giving advice and telling people what was coming up for them," he says with a laugh. When asked if he always
knew that he was psychic, his reply is simple. "Yes, but back where I come from, people I knew didn't say I was
psychic they just told me that I knew things others didn't." Sitting in a comfy brown regal-looking chair but dressed in
just a pair of blue jeans and a white t-shirt, Leo seems comfortable and at peace. Ever the open book, he goes on to
say how his psychic skills began to take shape. "It started with dreams and just what you would call hunches at first,
but as I got older especially around eighteen, it really grew, I had friends that would ask me about their love life, jobs,
basic life questions even pets and soon my name started to grow but I never thought of it as a job, I was just helping
people see things clearer." How Leo got into the business as a professional psychic is another story. "Actually, my
best friend from high school suggested that I should seriously think about it as a career. My first thought was, No! I
can't do that," he says laughing loudly. Fast-forward to today and Leo Brown not only loves what he does but also
has a strong passion for it. "I'm very, very happy and glad I took my best friend's advice." he says as his smile
radiates the room we're sitting in. "I've been in this business for six years and I feel that when you pick up that phone
to speak with me, you’re speaking with a friend, who truly wants to help you and empower your life." "The key is
though," he continues to say with a serious look on his face, "you have to be ready for the truth, because this is your
life and your reading. I can be your friend only if you allow me to be."

Different types of haunts

HUMAN SPIRITS – These are simply people that have not crossed. Their temperament will appear the same in the
afterlife as it did during their life. So if they were hateful in life, chances are they are still hateful now. (The same as
being pleasant.)

CHILD SPIRITS – Yes, they are many in existence. However, there are certain warning signs to look for regarding a
child spirit. If a human spirit, they tend to be playful or that of a pranster.

DEMONS & DAMNED SOULS – These are the worst types of haunts. Generally causing people to move from the
home. They are out to scare you, can cause bodily harm, and tend to break or hide religious items in the home.
There are several signs to a demonic haunt to which I will not discuss.

THE SUPERNATURAL – Unlike a human spirit the supernatural comes with “supernatural strength”. For example
human spirits can shut doors, or move small items. The supernatural has the strength to levitate large pieces of
furniture, etc. (Something an individual human would be incapable of.)

POLTERGIEST – Though often frightening, it simply means a noisy ghost. Slamming of doors and windows, stomping
on the floor, rattling chains. (LOL joking, I haven’t heard chains rattle.)

Why are they here?
Human spirits can attach to a home or to the land. Some choose to stay while others are scarred to cross. This could
be for varying reasons. They may question their faith, or worry they won’t be forgiven, or in child’s instance, just not
understand. It is a common misconception that someone of clergy can make them cross. Clergy can reassure them of
what is to come and all will be forgiven. It is the choice of the entity. Those of the Catholic faith tend to believe that if
there is something here, it is evil, when indeed they can be stuck.
Demons and damned souls… If seen they generally, do not have eyes, indicating no soul. They can often manifest
as a child or animal in order to earn your trust, there again, your warning would be two hollow holes for eyes.

For those living in a spirited home, you can set your boundaries. They tend to be like children, give them something
they can do, as well as something they cannot do. For example, in my home, they are allowed to move items, but not
to show themselves. (Also note they do NOT cooperate, as in dishes, laundry etc…YEP I have tried!!)

Also note, that Virginia Real Estate law does NOT require an agent to disclose to you if someone has died in the
home. They have to tell you if you ask directly.

There are many, many reports of experiences from haunted locations. This is just a briefing on different types of
haunts.

Petersburg Historic District

It is unuasual for us to be able to say were we are heading to investigate. This evening we will be heading to
Petersburg's Folly Castle Historic District, for an investigation of a vacant house built in 1810. We will be working with
MoSoghost.net out of Missouri on this case. The house is currently for sale, and the Real Estate Company has
requested the investigation. We have received a couple of emails today to inquire about this, as it was broadcast on
some radio stations this morning. We certainly hope to have more information about this later this week. Look for an
upcoming article in the Richmond Examiner at http://examiner.com/x-21578-Richmond-Psychic--Pararnormal-
Examiner.

Camera Adapter

We did receive back today, OUR camera adapter. With this is the camera adapter only. No stabalizer bar, no shoe,
no warranty papers or anything like that (in which we paid for). Also noted, that we, the public can purchase this
adapter from Amazon for $63.00. So what do you think we spent $115.00 on? Especially when "this person" had such
a "powerful discount" on camera equipment that they were extending to us...
Has anyone spoke to Cheyenne lately?

www.CVAPI.com Undergoing Upgrades

CVAPI is fortunate enough to own their own server. Currently that server is being upgraded. This will allow us to
expand the website as well as incorporate some new features. We do have several video clips, EVP's and
photographs to add to the site as of now. Upgrades to the site should begin later next week.

Upcoming Documentary

Last weekend CVAPI worked with Nicole Sorgini, from George Washington University on an upcoming documentary
on "Paranormal Investigators". I believe we all had a great time and enjoyed working with Nicole and her friends. It is
a nice change to get the word out on what we do as investigators. Our personal experiences, what we look for and
how the equipment operates. More to come on this soon!

our sponsors in helping this team out in order to reach our goals of taking things to another level.

there, than they are NOT affiliated with CVAPI.

CVAPI Clarifications
It has come to the attention of many CVAPI member's that there are some things that need to be clarified. First, we
are a team of "paranormal investigators". Notice I said, "paranormal investigators", not psychic detectives. I am the
founder of CVAPI and work as a full time psychic, this does not mean that we consist of a team of psychics. Those
that do not carry those abilities take great offense to this.
The objective of CVAPI has always been, and always will be, that our clients come first. With that said it means our
research comes second. The investigations that you see on our websites are "portions" of our investigations.
Evidence collected at a location are given to our clients in their entirety. Our clients have a copy of everything that we
have in our case files, a lot of teams do not believe in this. CVAPI does not believe in withholding information. We are
very grateful for our clients that have opened their homes and businesses to us, as well as discussing their
paranormal concerns. We also do not believe in prejudging people and carry the belief that everyone needs to be
heard.
CVAPI does NOT charge for our services. Nor do we advertise that we are a non-profit organization. For those teams
that advertise as a "non-profit organization" we "assume" that means that you have a non-profit organization status
filled with the IRS, otherwise it is false advertising. CVAPI owns all of our equipment. It has been paid for out of our
pockets, through fundraisers and donations.
CVAPI runs by strict structure and protocol. We do not carry any "specialists" in any category. Every member brings
something special to this team, as humans, they all have their strengths and weaknesses. Every member is cross
trained on investigations and research, as well as they have worked hard for a position on this team. Our team
consists of skeptics and believers combined.
Working as a full time psychic brings a certain amount of publicity. It has been my decision to include CVAPI in that
media circle. So to answer the latest buzz by people....NO we do NOT know anyone in the media that is helping us
out. CVAPI is currently working on a couple of projects that cannot be disclosed to the public anytime soon.
There are team members in our chat room every Thursday night at 9:00PM located at www.cvapi.com . They are
more than willing to answer your questions on the paranormal and any questions that you may have about CVAPI.
The team itself is currently full, but we do encourage that you join our Meetup group at www.meetup.
com/paranormalcvapi as we do include interested members from time to time.

This Weekends Fundraiser
WHAT A BLAST! I think we all questioned what we could accomplish with a large crowd as well as if the location would
produce any activity with a large crowd of people.
First we were amazed to learn that they came from Newport News, Williamsburg and Wytheville Virginia. We were all
delighted to have Norfolk's Psychic Medium Examiner, Elizabeth, join us with her husband! Also, a pleasant surprise
of another bar in attendance with their own personal experiences at their location.
Many captured some great photos. We had one were her camera started taking photographs for her. The K2 meter
gave better activity than anytime we had ever been in that location. The restaurant itself provided a wonderful buffet
of breakfast pizza, casserole, fresh fruit, with a variety of bagels and cream cheese, along with fresh coffee and
orange juice.
We are very anxious to review our audio and video. We thank those that provided us with their email addresses, you
will get to see first hand, what we captured there.
We thank all of you for coming and look forward to meeting with you again.

Paranormal Equipment
CVAPI carries an extensive amount of equipment. I am often asked where do we get the equipment. To be honest, it
varies. There are many simple items that you can pick up at Walmart or your local hardware store. Other items have
to be ordered online.
If you are just getting started, there are several items that you can pick up that will not break the bank. A flashlight is
a must. I recommend a battery flashlight as well as an LED. (For some reason we do not have battery drain as often
on the LED lights.) A camera, you can now purchase digital camera's for around $75. Any film camera will work as
well. If you are on a budget and cannot afford an EMF meter, I would recommend a compass. You can pick these up
in any camping section. They will spin the same way a EMF Meter will spike. A voice recorder, either digital or analog.
I also recommend shopping the sales on the digital recorders.
For any other items I would recommend shopping online. EBay and Amazon would be a great place to shop as well
as some of the online paranormal stores. However, please take the time for price comparisons before jumping into a
purchase!

Share your stories with us!
We have received emails of your ghost stories and photos that you would like us to look at. Keep them coming! We
do enjoy looking at your photos, but please remember we can give you but so much input. I say this because on an
investigation we work in a controlled environment. So when you send us your photos send us the details. Who was in
the room, if the heating and air was on, etc.
We love hearing your ghost stories! Share them here on our blog, or join our forum, you will find a link at www.cvapi.
com I myself live in a very active home. Just when I think we are down to "normal" occurrences, something new will
happen. It certainly keeps us on our toes!
Next week, look for an announcement from us on an upcoming fundraiser. This will be a "ghost hunt" open to the
public. I can give you a hint that it will be Sunday morning August 23rd, from 3:00AM to 7:00AM, so go ahead and
mark your calander!

NBC Channel 12
When I was first contacted by reporter Matt Butner, of Channel 12, your first thought....media...friend or foe? They
have the ability to put you in a positive professional light or the ability to make you look like idiots! It is VERY hard to
get across to the public, that what we do, consists of more than running around at night with flashlights. (Even though
that is part of it.)
The story aired last night on the news at 11:00PM. The entire team was sitting on pins and needles. The end result...
we are more than pleased with the story! Matt did a great job with showing us as professionals! He honored our
request of not disclosing the location. Everyone on the team was on camera. All of the employees of the restaurant
were on camera. We all LOVED the preview shown yesterday leading up to the story, what a great job they did with
that!
If you missed it, you may review the story and video footage at http://www.nbc12.com/global/story.asp?s=10732579
Please take the time to cast your vote at the top of the story on, "Do you believe in ghosts?"

Michael Jackson's Ghost
With all of the commotion surrounding Michael Jackson's death, it did not take long for someone to come out with
they have spotted his ghost on Larry King Live at Neverland Ranch.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1197780/Ghost-Michael-Jackson-caught-camera-pacing-corridors-
Neverland.html
I honestly believe it would be hard to say if this is a ghost or not. We were not there to determine if it could be
someone walking around in the other room. What do you think?
However, I will say it is a pretty cool video clip!
I hope his family will bury him soon and let him rest in peace.

Psychic Medium
A psychic medium is much different than a psychic. Though most psychics carry some medium skills. A medium is
one who strictly communicates with those who have passed. Elizabeth was a client of ours. She has proven her
mediumship abilities to the point her story was submitted to the Producers of Discovery. As well as she has assisted
CVAPI with other clients. Elizabeth, like myself, is also a freelance writer. Though her haunting was a negative
experience for her and her family, she is turning this into a positive experience by writing a book. As an artist, she is
also able to illustrate it herself to include what she saw. You may find her story on our website under Podcasts of the
Case of the Haunted Bed.
Recently Elizabeth has landed a freelance job at the Examiner. Please subscribe and show your support! You will find
her at http://www.examiner.com/x-13297-Norfolk-Psychic-Communication-Examiner

EVP's (Electronic Voice Phenomenon)
EVP's fall into one of 3 classes. A Class A means that they are audible and easily understood. A Class B means they
are audible and difficult to understand. And a Class C means that they are audible, and generally have to be
"cleaned up", in order to understand.
Class A EVP's seem to come few and far in between. Even though we do have some nice Class A's posted on our
website. When you enter the category of Class B and Class C, it is based entirely on speculation, as different people
will hear different things.
When reviewing EVP's it is highly recommended that you use either headphones or ear buds. I was told this several
times before trying this and was amazed at the difference it makes.
I also recommend the program Audacity. This is a FREE download, and you will find sites that sell it! When using
Audacity, PLEASE do not rely, on the "flat line" on recordings. I have had several recordings appear on that flat line.
It will give you a good visual of when to turn your volume down for review.
Audacity also gives you the features for EVP "clean up", as in amplifying the sound or noise reduction. We do try to
keep the original file in tact as well.
I have found that some have an uncanny ear when it comes to hearing these recordings. As well as some can't hear
them at all.
It is very possible to capture an EVP on an analog (cassette) recorder, as we have done so in the past. Of course,
the digital recorders are preferred due to their sensitivity. If you don't have a recorder at all, I would recommend your
cell phone. We have also found that this works very well. Various cell phones will have varying recording quality. So
far, we have found the blackberry to be the best.
Find the record feature on your cell phone. Record, and then save the file. Then email that file to your computer.
Once on your computer you may review the file in Audacity.

CVAPI Matching the Deaf with the Paranormal
Recently we were approached by the deaf community wanting to participate in paranormal investigations. "Lily" is a
member of my Meetup group Central Virginia Psychic Development and Paranormal Research, and she is deaf. We
recently had the opportunity to work with her on an investigation.
Lily had her interpreter with her that evening, but we feel that she would be okay even without one. I believe that we
all fail to realize that the deaf have heightened senses in areas that we do not. Her interest are in video and
photography. She was able to pick up things on photography that we were unable to because she felt a vibration in
that area.
In complete darkness, she can communicate her need to speak with us with a flash light or a laser light. (I recommend
the laser, as they shoot further than a flash light) If need be, she can write to us in what she is experiencing.
The paranormal for most of us, is a hobby. Her interest in the paranormal is no different than ours. She is limited in
some of the research when it comes to the audio. Other than that, I cannot see that her handicap should hold her
back from investigations.
Lily has bought to my attention, that she has over 100 people nationwide that are interested in paranormal
investigations. CVAPI has agreed to assist her in a campaign of matching the deaf with paranormal teams.
I am asking that if you have a Meetup group, or a paranormal team, that you please take in a deaf person in your
area as a guest or a member on an investigation. We are hoping to make a match with all of those in the deaf
community that have a paranormal interest.
If you are interested in participating in this campaign, please contact me with your teams name and location.

CVAPI Welcomes Ryan to the Team
Ryan has been a guest of CVAPI for several weeks now. He has participated in two investigations, evidence review
on several occassions, and has been through a training session. He has a strong backing in occult sciences that we
certainly can use. Ryan is originally from North Carolina and has been in Virginia for less than a year now.
We look forward to having him as a team member and hope that we are part of his new beginning that he has been
seeking.

In other news, we have an announcement later this week that paranormal teams across the country may participate!

The Ovilus
This past weekend, CVAPI had the opportunity to conduct an investigation with Patrick Burns from Haunting Evidence
and Shannon, and her husband Jeff from Ghost Hunters International, in Northern Virginia.
Patrick had The Ovilus, and this is the first time this team has worked with one of these. I much prefer this over the
Franks Box! For one, there is no radio static. It only announces clear concise words that are stored on that device.
As with any paranormal device, there are questions concerning it's accuracy. However, we could not help but notice,
that some of the words fit perfectly as to the location that we were in.
After several minutes had passed and we all forgot the Ovilus was even in the room. It announced a couple of words,
in which, were most fitting of the questions we had just asked.
If any of you have worked with the Ovilus, we would like to hear from you. This is a new peice of equipment that we
are considering adding.

Skeptics and Believers
Our team is made of both skeptics and believers. It takes both sides and both sets of opinions to conduct an
investigation. The same as I don't let an investigator investigate alone. We pair off into groups. I like having two sets
of eyes, and two sets of ears, for two sets of opinions and experiences.
I HATE the word "debunk". To me it tells someone that we do not believe them and we are there to prove them wrong.
When entering an investigation we try to duplicate any experience that we, or the homeowner may have.
I find that most skeptics are the ones that have never had a paranormal experience. I even have skeptics that have
had a paranormal experience as they are described as "hard to believe".
The majority of the investigation requests that we receive from homeowners, start with, "I am not crazy". They are
educated, have careers, and are the average American family.
The Believers seem to be the ones that have had a paranormal experience. Particularly those that have seen a
ghost in full form. Or, they have had several unexplainable experiences in their lifetime.
My experiences over the years, and working as a professional psychic, I guess you would say makes me a believer in
the other side and the paranormal. HOWEVER, that does not mean that all reports of the paranormal are actually
paranormal. Some instances can be explained.
For me as a psychic, I consider myself a "tool". Just an extra gadget to go along with our various equipment of
cameras and meters.
So what are you? Skeptic or a believer?

The Unexplained Camera Flash
I have opened up this topic a couple of times on our forum, with still no response. What is the unexplained camera
flash?
During several investigations we have witnessed an "unexplained camera flash". Simply stated it appears that
someone has taken your picture. However there is no one there with a camera! Several of my investigators have now
had this experience. Luckily we have actually caught this on video a couple of times so we know we have not
completely lost our minds!
Over the course of the last year, I have now seen this in my home twice. I have contacted many, many paranormal
teams and no one can account for ever having this experience.
Is it possible that this is some sort of communication? Your thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated!

The Beginning of CVAPI...
CVAPI is actually a spinoff of my Meetup Group called Central Virginia Psychic Development and Paranormal
Research. Some refer to it as my "core" group. My Meetup group had only been in place for 3 months, when I started
receiving requests for investigations. Of the two that requested investigations, I referred them to another local
paranormal team. The first that contacted the team, said that team never responded to her. The second that
contacted that team, said that they had "belittled" her and spoke to her as if she were nuts.

This prompted me to start my own paranormal team, to help those that needed help. This group strongly believe that
"everyone needs to be heard", and I find it disheartening in how they were treated. In May of 2008, on a public
investigation with my Meetup group, I announced that a team would be formed.

Those that were seriously interested contacted me right away. Three of those people are still with me today. Two
solid weeks of work started at that point. From deciding upon our name, contacting my attorney for the legalities, a
website, the paperwork, and the forming of our bylaws. The finality came with Herman creating our logo.

A year ago today, June 8th, was the day we meet as a team and established the bylaws and the signing of our
paperwork. The accomplishments in the last year have amazed me. Bylaws were added to and amended as we
progressed in investigations. New ideas continue to come to light. We had investigators that did not work out, and still
we moved forward. By the end of the year, we had completed several investigations, we have been in local and
national papers, we have been on local tv, our clients are delighted with our findings and would have us back. We
have also accomplished purchasing a new surveillance system, in which, several months ago, we did not believe we
would reach that goal.

Today, as it has been one year, I can honestly say that I am 100% satisfied with this team. Members work well
together. The hours are long, the drives are long, the evidence review is a long process. For this we are paid
nothing. We enjoy what we do, wrap up one investigation and move forward to the next.

The plan for this year, is to continue to move forward and keeping this group in a positive light within the community.
We have welcomed Cory aboard as a new member and have a couple of guests that are hanging out with us. I would
also like to thank Heidi for our cake (pictured at the bottom of the blog). It was really great to get together not only as
a team but as friends. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER YEAR!

Spirits and our Hand Held Radios
It has amazed me in regards to how many experiences we have had with our hand held radios. (Walkie talkies) Our
first experience we received a lot of "radio interference" in which we chalked up to it being one set of radios.
Our next experience was with a different set of radios. Most impressive is on another occasion, 5 of us set in the
room and placed the radio on the table. This was also where we had returned to the location that we had a lot of
interference on the radios. We were all amazed as "something" pushed the call button on that radio.
What causes the radio interference? Does it have something to do with the magnetic fields? It does appear that the
radio frequencies are easily accessible to spirits.

CVAPI Welcomes Cory to the Team
It is always exciting when we add a new member to the team. Cory has accepted a training position with us. He has
been out on a couple investigations with us, been through training sessions, and participated in evidence review.
He is a skeptic at heart with a wonderful approach on trying to duplicate instances. He works with our team members
very well and we are lucky to have him.
WELCOME ABOARD CORY!

Anniversay coming up!
It is hard to believe that we have been running formally as a team for a year now. This week will be geared towards
getting everything ready for our party including our team, clients and supporters.
It is not as easy as some may think in putting together a team. However I am more than pleased with our community
presence, our accomplishments, and what the team stands for.
I am looking forward to have everyone come together for a celebration as well as I can't wait to see what this
upcoming year will hold for us.
GREAT JOB EVERYONE!

My Paranormal Interest Con't
In growing up in that farm house there were a lot of "unexplained" instances. One I remember is there was an empty
room upstairs at the end of the hallway that the entire family used for storage. That room was directly over our
kitchen. Often my Grandma would yell up the steps and ask what I was doing in that room when I had never been in
there. We had several arguments about this. Late at night, I could hear someone walking in that room. At first I was
told it was a mouse and we set traps and caught nothing. Then I was told the house was settling. (Built in the early
1800's how much more could it possibly settle) And finally I learned to sleep with the radio on.
Later in life, my daughter stayed at my Grandma's after school. She too, can now remember of being accused of
being upstairs in that room when she had never went upstairs. It was true, at times sitting at the kitchen table, it
appeared that someone was walking up there.
In regards to the family cemetery, growing up I was scared to death of it at night. To the point someone would have to
walk me home if I had to pass it. That fear I never overcome. Now I wonder if there was more to it?

My Interest in the Paranormal Began...
My interest in the paranormal began as a teenager. I grew up in an old farmhouse built in the early 1800’s, with my
Grandmother and with our family cemetery in the yard. I think I was 14 or 15 when I had a sleep over and we all saw
our first ghost!
We used to chase each other up the stairs. (Being an old farmhouse the stairs were very steep and my friends
seemed to enjoy them.) After going downstairs to the kitchen for a drink and a snack, we then all 4 began to race up
the stairs.
The one leading stopped midway up the stairs causing the rest of us to stop. The hallway light was on at the top of
the steps and there stood a man, looking down at us in a war uniform. He was in perfect form. He was detailed
enough that I could see the wrinkles near his eyes and the hair growth beginning on his face. At that moment my
friend beside me said, “I can see through his legs!”. With that he completely disappeared.
Yes, it scared me to death. First of all, there was no doubt in any of us that it was a ghost. Second, the expression on
his face I would never forget as I would describe him as angry. Angry at what? Me?
We told my Grandmother of our experience and she laughed it off, stating the house does not have ghost. (Even
though the entire family joked about “Uncle Harvey”, the ghost that moved and hid items.) After my friends left, my
Grandmother and I had a long talk because I did not think she realized how frightened and upset I really was about
this. (No one lived upstairs but me.)
Later that day, she called me to the phone, it was one of her sisters. She told me that she too, had seen him in the
house at an early age and no one believed her. She told me that it was my 6th great grandfather, who was a Captain
in the Civil War and buried in the cemetery. It gave me some relief to know that he had been seen before, but no
relief to go back upstairs that night.
For two months I slept downstairs in the living room on the sofa, until my family picked on me so bad that I eventually
returned to my room. (I would go upstairs during the day, but made sure I did not have to return up there, when night
fell.)
My Grandmother did not help matters at all by telling me it could have been anyone, as my bedroom was the soldier’s
room. When they were in the Civil War and would come by the house that is the room they would stay in.
Recently we did an investigation were they report their ghosts in full form. Another report was said that there was a
black shadow around 6-foot tall and the shape of a man. I saw that shadow! Once again, I felt like I was back in my
teenage years and left completely speechless, to the point that I could not tell the investigator beside me to
turnaround!
Of course this appeared off camera, and I am hoping that it appeared on one of the others. (We have not finished
the video review yet.) If not, I would really like to return to this location to see if we can get him on video.
Funny thing, I have had two locations that report full figure aspirations, and both seem to play with my cameras, but
will not appear in front of them!

Introduction
I wanted to start with an introductory to who I am and who is CVAPI. My name is Jackie and I work as a full time
psychic under the nickname of Ms Swami. For years I performed readings on my family, friends, and coworkers as my
hobby. With their encouragement, I took this hobby to a full time professional level, and honestly I love what I do.

Now what would I do for a hobby? In January of 2008, I founded Central VA Psychic Development and Paranormal
Research. This is a group of willing individuals that get together for a meeting every so often where the topics are
open. So many believe in ghosts, many have questions on the Tarot...in this group you can come together and ask
all of these questions on the topics that you feel that you cannot discuss with your family and friends.

As soon as that group began, I started recieving requests for paranormal investigations. (For most, pyschics and the
paranormal go hand in hand.) With the encouragement of my friends and my daughter, we now decided it was time to
move forward with an actual paranormal team. This is how CVAPI, Central Virginia Paranormal Investigations began.

So here under Virginia is for Ghost Lovers, you will find various topics to come. Anything from ghost stories, to info
on our investigations, to my rants and raves. If we can get enough followers and enough comments, I hope to have
the actual team members contribute to the blog as well.

Meanwhile any ghost stories you would like to share? We would love to hear them!
