When it comes to getting an entity or spirit to leave a location, the Hodgsons said what works depends on what is there. For example, if the problem is demonic, saging won’t work like it would for a spirit. Steve said they work to empower the owner to command the spirit to leave, but added that different things work and there is no set formula. They have helped spirits cross over, Jenn stated.
“Nine times out of ten, people have to change their lifestyle. You have to want it to go enough to change,” Steve said.
The Hodgsons said PPI usually doesn’t return to a location to review evidence with an owner. Instead, they send a DVD with all the evidence they captured and explanations. Sometimes they will return to review evidence, but especially with the locations that require far trips, they usually send a video.
They were called to investigate Thornhaven Manor in New Castle. While there, they heard a metal object thrown across the room during an EVP session. A later review of the evidence revealed a camera being moved and audio saying, “Stop asking questions,” as well as numerous other occurrences. Because of PPI confirming paranormal activity at Thornhaven Manor, the owner now charges paranormal groups to investigate there and is using the money to restore the house.
According to Steve and Jenn, the Crump Theatre in Columbus, the old Hartford City Jail and Thornhaven Manor are all places where one can hold a paranormal investigation without being part of a group. All of the locations require identification and for everyone involved to be over the age of 21. Some will require fees or donations and may require investigators to sign an injury waiver.
The Hodgsons and PPI believe there is a lot more to learn about the world and many questions left to be answered. They would love to hear about new locations that require investigation. If one believes they are experiencing paranormal activity and would like assistance, PPI can be reached at 812-591-2127 or at www.professionalparanormalinvestigations.com.
