This year we've helped people who have not needed us to turn on one camera, or push one button on a meter. There have been people that have had spirits attatched to them that were wreaking havoc on their lives, and we were able to stop the activity with some simple instructions. Sure, we could have taped the environment around them and probably would have caught some crazy things on those tapes, but that wouldn't have helped them at all. What I am saying here is that I am glad we didnt get into this to become "Ghosthunters", and that we did it to be the Paranormal Investigators and scientists we are now. SOUP has noticed many groups have been "Selling Out" at an alarming ratea lately, and just trying to get press, and a TV deal; basically trying to help themselves and their wallets. Just know, the same four guys that you've come to know and love are not gonna go Hollywood folks. We've been offered these things, and really it isn't amusing to us.
This year we are going back to Waverly Hills Sanatorium to see how far we've come as a group, and in general, see how much more we can uncover in the large structure.We don't usually do the historically haunted sites as we have enough cases as is, but something has been eating at us for a while: I know we will hear more screams and see more shadowpeople than you can shake a stick at (as we witnessed last time); but we want to start figuring out why these spirits stay there; why haven't some moved on by now, and really look into what is driving it all. We know that we may be doing some other hospitals that are shutting down in the near future, so this kind of gives us a leg up on figuring out how to clear some of the more negative entities, and also help those that reach out to us. I know it is a tall order being that Waverly Hills is looked upon as being The Mecca of Haunted....but why not? Lots of other historically haunted places have declined in activity from other groups caring and helping clear the spaces of spirits. Leaving a place to be haunted just so it is a funhouse for others is kind of a weird and cruel sense of amusement, right? I guess that it is all up to the individual, but we hope to find another piece of the puzzle, and have a great night of work down in Louisville KY! Hope to see you all in the NEW YEAR!
