Ghost Head Soup - Paranormal Researchers:

On December 16, 2010 an email was received announcing that "We are Ghost Head Soup." Nick, George, Mark, Tim and Dean.

We were actually transitioning from other teams to form the Soup, but it didn't take long to realize the synergy between the five of us....we referred to ourselves as the "Council of 5."

In addition to the Council of 5, we had added more ingredients to the soup. One person that was there from the beginning is Jeremy. Melissa & Laura completed the Alden Chapter of Ghost Head Soup, along with our most recent addition, Amanda.

An early quote from George circa 2010:

" I want those dark and terrible things that we hunt afraid of us, too. When the lights go out... WE are the baddest thing in the room." G.

Enjoy our soup du jour!

There is a slight edit needed while reading: "Earlier Kathi had mentioned that the girl was drenched in a gown and her hair was covering her face. The description of the way Alma was killed is pretty graphic, but would explain why her spirit wouldn't remember her name and would appear to Kathi the way that she did.

Featured Cemetery

German Waldheim Cemetery, previously known as Waldheim Cemetery, was originally founded in 1873 as a non-religion-specific cemetery, where Freemasons, Romani, and German-speaking immigrants to Chicago could be buried without regard for religious affiliation. In 1969 it merged with the adjacent Forest Home Cemetery, also founded in 1873, with the combined cemetery being called Forest Home (Waldheim means "forest home" in German).

GHS TRAVEL DESTINAIONS: "From sea to shining sea"

KEY WEST: Recently Nick and his wife visited Key West. With over 42 documented spirits, the city has a vast history dating back to early war times.

We visited the cemetery, local museums, Earnest Hemingway’s house, and of course Robert the Doll. At the cemetery, established in 1846, we took photos of the various grave sites of many soldiers (along with giant iguanas) that met their demise in the city. From there we ventured to the museum at the custom house, where the path was once trod by wreckers, rumrunners, and politicians when the city was the richest and largest city of Florida, we even got to see Hemingway’s blood-stained WWI uniform. Lastly, we toured the East Martello Museum, home of the famed Robert the Doll. Robert was once owned by Robert Eugene Otto – famed painter and author of Key West, Florida.

Here are a few of the photos from our adventure, let us know if you see anything!

Terms used by Ghost Head Soup:

  1. Judas Effect: Is when sounds and vocals combine together to produce a clear audible response, for example, a shoe scuff along with someone starting to speak sounded like the name "Judas". This combination of sounds formed what is perceived to be an unexplained voice capture. Therefore, video footage is needed to support the separation of the sounds.

  2. LAB LIGHTS: As we stood in a dark room, the Ghost Head Soup laboratory, with only one candle burning, we all stared into the flame for about ten minutes. Once we extinguished the candle we proceeded with our investigation. Our intention was to heighten our vision by staring into the burning flame. After a few moments of darkness we all started to see red and blue flashes in the dark, when we all realized we were seeing the same lights. We call this active phenomenon "Lab Lights" as this took place at our laboratory.

  3. Spirit Tree (Earth Whiskers): Trees serve as a conduit for spirits. Earth whiskers are sensory inputs filled with contained energy where a spirit could use the tree as a means to manifest. In some cases you may be able to take a photo, of the spirit, on the tree itself.

  4. Dog Ears: An audio clip that you need dog ears to hear it. Lean in to hear the audio clip.
