In March my husband and I took a quick weekend trip to San Diego and decided to do a private ghost investigation at one of San Diego’s most haunted houses, the Whaley House.
We rented the Whaley House for 2 hours at night. It was just my husband, myself, and 2 employees in the building; the employees took us into the courtroom first and sat us down to ask what it is we do and a little about the Whaley House.
As we were sitting talking about our company, team, and equipment; we decided to bring out the rem pod and turn it on. I placed it in front of me on the floor and as one employee kept mentioning the Whaley’s, the rem pod would go off. It seemed to go off only when the name was mentioned, we also had a light flicker too while talking about the Whaley’s. We figured it was going to be an interesting night as we went light out.
We got to go In all the rooms of the house and behind the “glass”, into the actual rooms. In the one bedroom we noticed the words Help me written on a mirror; we were unsure If this was from a prankster employee (cause apparently they had one) or something paranormal; since we didn’t experience the writing taking place ourselves we couldn’t determine if it was paranormal or not.
We went into the theater room where both Will and I did feel as If we had gotten touched and had the K2 jump up. Also in the general store, the K2 went all the way to red when we asked Yankee Jim if he wanted a shot of whiskey but when we got him one he didn’t drink it! We ran into some cold spots In the main parlor area too; there was a different feel to the environment when we entered that room.
As we wrapped up the night we decided to go back into the courtroom and Will was taking some pictures in the hallway as I was asking the spirits to let us know where they were; shortly after the parlor room door which the employee had shut after we left it opened on Its own; Will said he could hear the handle actually turn before he saw it open up. Guess they were letting us know where they were. We went to gather our equipment back up and witnessed the lights flickering again before we left, it would be just one light that would flicker to get brighter over the rest.
We said goodbye to the employees and explored a little outside before heading back to our hotel.
We had captured some interesting EVPs that night. It wasn’t a lot of non-stop activity but still interesting! Hey, when you do paranormal investigations, you learn that you can sit around for hours and have nothing happen; it’s not like on TV but still, I love these old historical places. Just sitting there soaking up the environment in these old buildings are amazing with or without paranormal activity; but with the activity, it makes it even more exciting, it really makes you realize that you are truly never alone!
