Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Kenneth W. Harmon, author of Ghost Under Foot.
In August of 2007, my family discovered we had a ghost living with us. I launched an investigation and, within a few months, captured the spirit in photographs and on video. We learned to communicate with the spirit telepathically, and she responded to our requests to appear in â€śhuman formâ€ť by absorbing energy in order to manifest as a full-body apparition.
With the help of Pat Walker from the Fort Collins Museum, I was able to identify the spirit as Mary Bell Wilson, who died from typhoid fever in 1886. Later, we were taught by Duane and Susan Kniebes (who are part of a project sponsored by the state of Colorado to locate pioneer graves in Larimer County using dowsing rods) to communicate with Mary Bell through dowsing rods.
At this point, I was able to communicate with Mary Bell on a daily basis. She knew my family; I even discovered Mary Bell knew things that no one outside of my family should know (for example, she correctly identified my grandparents by name as well as knew their birthplaces and the places where they were buried). How could Mary Bell have knowledge of such things? Did she use telepathy that allowed her to tap into the superconscious to access the collective wisdom of the human species? Does a personâ€™s mind open up to all knowledge after we die, which would explain why Mary Bell could answer my questions? If she could answer questions about my family, what would happen if I asked her questions regarding some of the most famous mysteries? How would she respond if I asked her to identify Jack the Ripper, or the killer of President Kennedy?
I compiled a list of mysteries, including the crash of a UFO at Roswell, New Mexico, the existence of legendary creatures such as Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster, the civilization of Atlantis, the Shroud of Turin, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and more. Working off my list, I asked Mary Bell questions regarding the mysteries, and she answered each one, never providing a false positive. By this, I mean, Mary Bellâ€™s answers never changed. And while there is no way to verify her answers, Mary Bell has proven remarkably accurate in previous questioning. Once, when my sister and niece were using the rods to communicate with Mary Bell, my sister asked Mary Bell if my niece had ever driven while intoxicated. Mary Bell answered yes. My niece Kimberly became defensive and insisted she had never driven while drunk, and that Mary Bell was wrong. Later, while explaining a golfing game she used to play with her friends, Kimberly paused, her jaw sinking toward her chin, and announced, â€śI was drunk when I drove the golf cart.â€ť Once again, Mary Bell knew the answer to a question she never should have known.
