Revisiting Keith Linder and his eye-opening encounter with a very active poltergeist. Keith has completed the book about his experience. Available now, The Bothell House. on Amazon
Local recap and endorsement via The Bothell Reporter.
Poltergeists are so far beyond the pale that many of the so-called paranormal experts are challenged when called upon to quantify or validate the occurrence. Unfamiliar territory. One cannot get answers by simply sticking a toe in the water. And they do know how to play … invisible …
Understanding the enigma requires immersion and a 24/7 time commitment. A better word choice might be ‘confirming’. The word ‘understanding’ is a bit naïve. Every situation is unique.
Keith Linder soon discovered resources and experts were scarce. Many he turned to for help challenged his sincerity and his honesty. It was too extreme, too dramatic and over the top.
He was forced to do his own homework. In his corner, prior residents who corroborated the dark nature of the house. That life-line allows any who suggest this is just a cock and bull fairytale to find another patsy. The house has a nature unto itself. It can be quiet.
But when it wants to play – the game puts the corporeal world on notice:
Do your own homework.
It isn’t the bite that hurts, it’s the kickback – when you least expect.
What does Keith say he would not repeat? From the YouTube vid:
“It should be said here by me that the biggest mistake
I made was going out and buying more cameras.
Cameras, DVR’s, wifi video cams, etc were erected throughout the house.
Camera’s exemplify attention and cameras symbolize challenging it. You cannot or should not challenge a malevolent entity. Days, weeks and months after this event activity spiked.”
Thanks to Keith for the valuable tips and the list of resources he refers for how-to and how-not-to deal with the most energetically intense and emotionally tweaking extreme of paranormal manifestations: a poltergeist.
Bottom line. One thing that didn’t survive the roller coaster, the relationship. Maybe you have never encountered anything close to this situation but you may know or meet someone who has. If so, withhold judgment. Keith has done an excellent job of laying out the framework and retelling the tale in a way that the pitfalls and wrong turns are more apparent.
And he offers sound advice to anyone who would prefer to avoid that situation.
