“The main purpose of the event is to raise money for the buildings maintenance and to see if we have ghosts,” said FHS vice-president Tina Siciliano Cadwallader.
Four groups of 10 people will be rotated from one location to the other. They will be trained on how to use “haunting” equipment and/or trained how to use simple items like cell phones and a flashlight for their own research of their “haunted places.”
The team will also answer questions and they will have a medium too. The psychic medium is Rosemary Lelieveld with team members:
“The whole idea is helping souls reside in place in this life and next,” said Lelieveld, “We educate people and empower.”
The team has been together for 20 years, and each team member has had a paranormal experience. They will be using various equipment inside the historical buildings such as: EMF meters that measure electromagnetic fields, movement, pressure and other anomalies created by an entity such as a ghost.
“Electromagnetic field can be a conduit for paranormal activity,” said Lelieveld. “We will be looking for abnormal anomalies first on a scientific level.”
Secondly comes, where science meets spirit.
“If the devices show activity where we can feel and communicate with a ghost,” she said. “I was born with that natural ability.
There is a distinct difference between a ghost and a spirit.
“A ghost is a soul that hasn’t crossed over,” Lelieveld said. “Spirit is a human soul that has crossed to the other side. The whole idea is to communicate with the ghosts that are present.”
People will get to observe how the professional team works together.
“Many people have fear of the unknown,” she said. “There is no reason to be afraid.”
The Michigan Paranormal Alliance team donates all their work and time to give back to communities. They have investigated public places such as Waverly Hills Sanatorium, Trinway Mansion, Mansfield Reformatory, businesses and private homes.
Lelieveld also offers private readings. Her first paranormal experience was when she was 16 years old at a friend’s house.
“I had a conversation with her grandma,” she said.
The friend was surprised to hear that: “My grandma has been dead for five years.”
As a group, they had many paranormal experiences.
“We all had different experiences, some heavier,” she said. “It’s hard to single them out.”
“We have comparison data from two years ago to look over and see what the differences are, if any,” said Siciliano Cadwallader.
All proceeds benefit the preservation efforts of FHS.
The event is sold out.
