Forward by Marie Bargas:

In the days following the aftermath of the #metoo campaign many celebrities have come out and told their stories of rape and sexual abuse. It has been a communal exorcism of sorts and now very brave psychic has come out to tell the paranormal community her own story.  I would like to congratulate Vanessa Hogle on her courage and veracity. I am honored to be your colleague and your friend. Thank for inspiring hope at a turning in history. You are loved and remembered.

Sincerely,  Marie

There has been a lot of talk lately about victim shaming. So many innuendos and outright cruel statements posted on social media regarding victims of abuse, rape, chronic illness and the like that it makes one’s head spin. I decided it was time to come clean. To tell my story in hopes that it will help people understand how hurtful so many of these statements are.

You see, I was raped. Many years ago, when I was 19 years old, I was violated by someone I knew very well. We had been a couple, for quite some time, but had split up due to personal issues. I had reason to fear for my safety and spent time hiding out at friends’ houses. Hopping from one to the other, never staying in the same place very long. This went on for months before I finally felt like he had given up trying to find me. I let my guard down. I stayed too long, in one particular place, and he found me.

shame-2087878_64026 years ago he found out where I was staying, convinced my friend he only wanted to talk to me, and watched them walk out the door. They had no idea what his plans were. No one could have known, not even me, what he planned to do. He was that charming. I’m not even sure anyone believed me when I had warned them of my fears previously. It didn’t matter any way. From the time they walked out the door my fate was sealed … only I didn’t know it because I was asleep in the back bedroom. I was not aware of what had happened till I woke up to him on top of me. Raping me. Hand over my mouth to silence my screams. A foot taller than me and 70 lbs heavier. I never stood a chance. When he was finished he walked into the bathroom, grabbed a towel, threw it in my face and said, “now we’re done”, grabbed his clothes and walked out.

I remember sitting there, numb, not really sure what to do. At this time in my life, I was estranged from my family … I had no one. He had everyone. Everything. His family had money, position in the community. I was alone. My trust in everyone I knew was shattered. I cleaned myself up, as best I could, and made my way to the only person I knew who could help me. I’m not even sure how many miles I walked to get to her place, but I eventually got there. I hid out, not leaving her apartment, for as long as I could until I finally got the courage to try and live again. I got a job at a fast food restaurant about 3 miles away and I walked there … every day. I got one free meal, per day, from them and that’s all I ate. I built myself up, from the ground up, by myself. I made it to the woman I am today … a woman to be proud of … by myself. The year I turned 19 was the worst of my life but I had gotten past it … or so I thought. I didn’t know how much of that pain I had hidden away until I saw my rapist, this October, walking the streets of New Orleans. I was down there for a paranormal convention and was spending some free time with my son, and my best friend, when I saw him walking towards me.

I froze.

26 years of shame, pain and self-loathing flooded back. Choking me until I felt I couldn’t breathe. The only thing that kept me going was my son. I absolutely refused to subject him to anything that had to do with that part of my past. Granted, he knows what happened all those years ago. But … knowing, and actually seeing the man who did it, are two totally different things. So, I told Jana privately, and we walked away as fast as we could.

Part of me keeps trying to rationalize it all. Did I really see him? Was it a doppelganger? A twin I never knew about? Honestly, the answer is irrelevant. The truth, however, is blindingly clear.

sky-2667455_640I’m not OK. That is the truth. What I thought was strength keeping me going was, in fact, fear. Fear of remembering it all. Fear of reliving it all. Fear of feeling all of that all over again. It turns out I did not overcome what happened to me … I buried it. Now that corpse is rising from the grave and torturing me anew. And every time I see someone say in a post, “what was she wearing? She must’ve led him on!” in regard to a claim of rape, it’s like pouring salt in an open wound. I think people do that because they think they will never be on the other side … hurting … crying in shame. For their sake, I hope they are right.

Exorcism at the Temple of Hanuman in India

Hanuman, the Monkey God is an avatar of Shiva the Destroyer. Many believe that Hanuman dwells in this dimension and is therefore easily accessible. This exorcism was performed in a temple. There was no need for any sort of electrical “ghost busting” equipment. There was no paranormal team of Catholic priest required. This is exorcism for the masses and it is happening in India today.

Exorcism Outside of Christianity

Posted in exorcism, Folk Medicine, Ghosts, haunting, Pagan, Paranormal, PsychicProtection, Spirituality with tags , , , , , , , on November 6, 2017 by Marie Bargas

Today, as I post this I am sad to say that I was recently attacked by a member of the American Paranormal Community for being a Hindu. I was told by a so-called Christian exorcist, who by my calculation was untrained but egotistical nonetheless, that I was worshiping demons. The truth is that in this past year I have encountered several so-called “Christian” exorcists who have had no real training, who believe that they are somehow spiritually superior for their faith. I am sharing this today to remind everyone that exorcism is not exclusive to Christianity and that Hinduism is far older. In this instance the “demons” were banished to a location. They were “sent” somewhere to be imprisoned. The exorcist is a humble man with no visions or grandeur or spiritual superiority and yet … not one but several victims were “exorcised” by this man. Isn’t it Jesus who once said, “Judge not lest ye be judged?”

Psychic Predictions about Hurricane Irma from Christina George – Paranormal Connections – Florida Folks Need to Evacuate Now

Posted in Angels, Ghosts, Pagan, Paranormal, Psychic Readings, PsychicProtection, remoteviewing with tags , , , , , on September 6, 2017 by Marie Bargas

This post is not intended to incite panic. Instead, I am operating on the truth that being forewarned is being fore armed.

Christina accurately predicted detailed events leading up to Hurricane Harvey and the Earthquake/Nuclear Test in North Korea.

While I am praying alongside others who hope that Irma will go out to sea, I am also hoping that this broadcast may save some people if Irma should make landfall as a killer hurricane.

About Christina George:

Christina George is a practicing Psychic and Paranormal Investigator who researches everything paranormal including UFOs, Abductees, Star Children, Bigfoot, Chupacabras and Cryptozoology just to name a few. Christina is also the founder of P.P.R.S. ~ Psychic & Paranormal Research Society in Sacramento Ca and is the host of 2 Internationally known radio shows Paranormal Connections and Top Secret News .

1936311_1303152186366162_8921012316221225545_nBackground:

Christina’s whole life has been full of paranormal experiences and she has been able to see and communicate with spirits since she was very young. While she was very young the spirits were her friends, but as time went on things started to change. She started being tormented by spirits, haunted dolls, being attacked by dark spirits, and she even had multiple UFO sightings.

When Christina got to her late teens she was able to find a way to suppress her abilities and shut them down until she was involved in a car accident. During surgery for her injuries she experienced a Near Death Experience that changed her life. When she woke up in the ICU she was told that she had been diagnosed with an illness with no cure. After this experience her abilities were back and stronger than ever and so was her will to live. She also found that she her abilities like being  very intuitive…empathic…and having  very accurate pre cog dream  premonitions and visions.

Christina later decided that the best way to utilize her abilities was to help others who are scared and dealing with Paranormal Activity, as well as mentoring children and teens with abilities.

 With her abilities she is able to go into a clients home and figure out who is there, what they want, and what to do to get rid of it if need be.  But more importantly she can give closure  and validation to clients, as well as educate people that everything Paranormal is not bad or demonic. Christina has been investigating for over 15 yrs professionally and has done hundreds of cases including missing persons and a few unsolved murders with amazing results.

 She has been a guest on countless radio shows and now uses her radio shows as well as speaking engagements at conferences and events to share her cases, experiences and personal journey of living side by side with the paranormal world she calls her life. She is working on a book about her life and the journey it became to understand how to live side by side with the Paranormal World that everyone around me told me did not exist.

The Truth About Angels – 8/17 Update Psychic Protection for Paranormal Investigators

Posted in Angels, ghosthunt, Ghosts, haunting, mariebargas, NationalGhostHuntingDay2017, Pagan, Paranormal, Pop Culture, PsychicProtection, Spirituality, thehollywoodwitch with tags , , , on April 29, 2013 by Marie Bargas

Since I’ve been consulting for the Horsefly Chronicles in Easton, PA, I’ve met some wonderful people in the Paranormal Community.  A lot of them are psychics that help paranormal teams deal with unruly spirits. What I have discovered is that a lot of these psychics are untrained in psychic protection and their suffering is taken for granted as “part of the job.”  More recently, in working with National Ghost Hunting Day, I have been approached to give advice on “Psychic Protection for Paranormal Investigators.” 

Since everyone has a Guardian Angel, sometimes up to 3 Angels, then of course the first step in securing and maintaining angelic protection is creating a relationship with your own personal angelic guardians. I’d also like to dispel some of the misunderstandings connected to Angels and Witches. Witches work with Angels all the time for protection and invocation. The prejudice against earth based religions, goddess worship and practical magic is crutch for many in the paranormal world. The supernatural can and should be a vehicle for bringing people together in unity and understanding.

From my original blog posted in 2016.
6deda039c616bca1e94a9f897b605118As I was leafing through the blogs today I decided to do a search on Angels because since I’ve been invoking the Holy Spirit there have been quite a lot of them around me.  I chanced upon a beautiful photo of the Queen of Angels and I was going to re-blog it. But then I saw the caption and stopped cold.  Underneath the photo was a prayer to end abortion.  Looking up at the tags it was clear that the blogger was Christian. Searching through some of the other blogs I noticed that most of the bloggers were Christian. I read bits and pieces of each blog and decided to post my own. Why?  Because it’s time somebody brought up the fact that Angels and working with Angels are not an exclusively Christian thing. Angels are present in Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and many other faiths throughout the world. Angels do not appear exclusively to Christians!  Angels do not support ALL Christian beliefs and when you get right down to it… the history of Angels goes far back before the dawn of Christianity.

“Some scholars say that the earliest religious representation of the angels dates back to the city of Ur, in the Euphrates Valley, c. 4000–2500 b.c.e.”(Ancient Angels)

Furthermore, let’s clear something up immediately. There are a lot of WITCHES who work regularly with Angels for healing and protection. This is not surprising since ANGELS ARE NOT BIGOTS even though some human beings portray them as such.  I invoke Archangel Michael everyday for protection. Some trolls have tried to insist that what I perceive as Angels are in fact “Devils” by default because I’m a Witch. So, let me make another thing perfectly clear. Witches don’t worship Satan! Satanists worship Satan. Sadly, the notion that witches make pacts with the Devil in order to become witches is a common plot point in fictional Hollywood movies and tv shows. I’m not even going to see LORDS OF SALEM, even though I love Rob Zombie, because the plot is insulting to me. But seriously, it’s time someone set the record straight. Angels are also called upon to create what is called the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, a popular ritual with roots in the Golden Dawn that is used to banish negative vibes.  The four Archangels – Raphael, Michael, Gabriel and Uriel are called upon to preside over the four quarters over flaming banishing pentagrams.  That’s right – Angels + Pentagrams. If you thought pentagrams immediately meant devil worship you were WRONG.  In my own daily practice I say a traditional Catholic Prayer to my own Guardian Angel in Latin.

This is an essential prayer for any Paranormal Investigator. It should be said every day … before and after each investigation. I am posting the Latin Version as the preferred version because angels seem to resonate with Latin in my experience.  

ANGELE DEI,
qui custos es mei,
Me tibi commissum pietate superna;
(Hodie, Hac nocte) illumina, custodi, rege, et guberna.
Amen.

ANGEL OF GOD,
my guardian dear,
To whom his love commits me here;
Ever this (day, night) be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
Amen.

Angele Dei, also known as the Prayer to One’s Guardian Angel, was in the past attributed to St. Anselm (c1033-1109)

THIS IS DEDICATED TO CHRISTINA GEORGE WITH ALL LOVE AND RESPECT.
