“Almost on a daily basis I am contacted by people who fear that they have an entity in their premises – whether it be their home or their shop or workplace. Obviously, I cannot spend my days travelling the country investigating here, there and everywhere, but on occasions I feel drawn to responding to the person who has requested my help. On one occasion, I was contacted by a lady who was convinced that her shop was haunted by several spirits, some of whom were children who had died in a fire.”
“As soon as I entered the premises, I was aware that the atmosphere was far from pleasant, and I don’t mind admitting that I felt apprehensive from the moment I stepped through the door. I was more or less immediately aware that I needed to go to the upstairs section of the shop, but I knew that my presence was causing a disturbance. As I mounted the stairs, the energy hit me and I was aware of a spirit man who was intent on pushing me away. I could smell burning – he began shouting, and it became evident that he was shouting not only at me in an effort to stop me ascending further, but at some spirit children who were cowering away from him further along the landing. I felt an enormous pressure on my shoulders, as though the man was physically attempting to stop me from climbing any further up the stairs. Strangely, I felt that the man was shouting more through fear and anger than through any real badness. I felt that he had passed away due to an accident of some kind, and the owner of the shop repeated to me that there had been a fire in the premises many many years ago.”
“With great effort, I achieved my climb and stood on the landing prior to going into a room to my right. It was almost empty, save for some empty cardboard cartons, but I was immediately aware of much spirit activity in the room. I could see the spirit forms of a couple of small boys and a small girl dressed in clothes that I would imagine dated back to around the 1800s. I knew that they were in some way afraid of the man in spirit. It was my interpretation that the spirit man’s anger was not directed at anybody in particular. He was attempting to prevent people from being burned alive. I did not feel that there was a family link between the children and the spirit man, but for some reason they had all been in the building at the same time and had perished together. I was determined to do something to help them at the end of the investigation.”
