Very recently i met a girl through facebook called Holly who's also interested in the paranormal, is also from Sydney and has set up a group called Sydney Paranormal Society.
How long have you been involved with the paranormal?
I have been involved with the paranormal since I was 4 years of age but became serious about investigating after watching The X-Files when I found it on TV in 2000.
What prompted you to start your own paranormal group?
I started SPS because i found that there were over 50 people on a site called meetup.com who were interested in the paranormal and wanted to give them a group to belong to and also because I found that there were a lot of like-minded people who wanted to do some investigating and SPS would give them the chance to.
What paranormal experiences have you had?
I have heard voices and seen full bodied apparitions, shadows and had entities touch me on the hand.
What are your plans for the future of the group?
I plan to make a sub branch of SPS called Sydney International Paranormal Phenomena who would obviously go and do investigations overseas. I also plan to take SPS to the US and UK to conduct some joint investigations with a number of groups over there who have expressed interest in having us come over and join them.
If someone is experiencing paranormal activity - what is your advise for them?
My advice for anyone who thinks they are experiencing paranormal activity is to write down when where and what the activity is ie 'Bedroom 9pm - saw pencil on desk move of its own accord' and keep a log. If it starts getting out of hand ie they start getting violent reactions ie hair pulling, face slapping, being pushed down stairs, doors slammed in face etc, then we are more than happy to come out and do a full investigation at no cost to them.
How can they contact you?
Contact can be made via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via our myspace email email@example.com or our facebook site www.facebook.com/HollyButler.
