What is a Paranormal Investigation
and Why Might it be Needed?
An investigation is an experience that is
requested from a homeowner or business owner to professional psychic or
transmedium to explain and identify unexplained occurrences, such as
sounds, sights, knocking, orbs on photographs, and smells. Other
occurrences include, nightmares, cold spots, feeling phantom fingers on the
hair or person. As a professional psychic, Jorianne is able to sense those
who have left this world and communicate with them to determine their
During an investigation, her intention would be to come in and let you know
the origin of your disturbances – be they positive or negative. For
example, one investigation Jorianne did when a gentleman called her. He
explained that the gas was turned on when he came home from work. I told
him it might be the kids, he replied, they didn’t have kids. She asked
when it all started, he said, when he had bumped the cross that was hanging
on the wall. Afterwards, he and his wife heard footsteps through out the
house, knocking on the walls, and other happenings. When he came home to
find the gas on, it was the last straw for him. He called Jorianne
immediately. Jorianne, who worked with her daughter Terry, went to the home
and started the process of detection.
The most memorable part of the investigation was when she was walking up
the stairs and she clearly heard a man in a harsh voice state, “You can
NOT make me leave”. After further communication with the entity and much
work, they were able to resolve the haunting. The family was able to
finally find peace within their home again.
As an epiphany, Jorianne realized that when the cross shattered, it broke
the protection that it had been providing to the family.
Many times when someone dies, they do not automatically ‘crossover’
into the heavenly realms, for one reason or another. There are many that
decide to stay behind and become what we call “earth-bound” or “discarnant
entities”. These recently passed-on spirits are confused, lost or feel
that they have some unfinished business to take care of and many times will
go back to a familiar place. Some of them have not even realized they have
died. For example, someone who has recently died while heavily drugged by
pain killers like those who have cancer may not realized the have died.
Then there’s those who makes it home after a heavy night of partying and
fall asleep at the wheel. To their shock, they wake up dead after
accidentally asphyxiating themselves. These are not intentional suicides.
As an example of an investigation, one gentleman called Jorianne after
moving into a town home with his fiancé. He reported that shortly after
moving into the town home, he had fallen into such a deep depression, he
wanted to kill himself. He had gotten so bad, even his fiancé left him.
Upon arriving at the town home, Jorianne immediately detected that three
previous residents had already committed suicide on the location and were
spiritually influencing him to do the same.
After detecting the three previous suicides, the gentleman confirmed he had
knowledge of two. One of the suicide victims even went out in the back yard
and spread out newspapers to lie on so no one else had to clean up the mess
of his death.
Jorianne performed a house clearing and a clearing on the gentleman who
started to feel better, but he still chose to move out of his location due
to the history of the house.
Many people blow these occurrences off, thinking they are nothing more than
an over active imagination or trick of the mind. However, when the
occurrences escalate to point where they are constantly inducing fear (Coming soon: Happenings & George’s story)
The reason they need an investigation is because they have uninvited
guests. Who are these guests?
The normal process is that when one drops their physical body, and transits
to the spiritual world, they normally ascend to the heavenly planes in
which they make a full transition. The difference here is that once a
person makes their full transition, they can then come back to watch over
their loved ones and friends, bring messages, and visit you in your dreams.
These people do not need to be cleared or exorcised since they do not
linger – they are completely free to come and go as they wish. They
normally do not stay too long.
However, those in the earlier instance are souls who are trapped and have
no idea how to get to where they need to go on the other side, like in the
Some of these phenomena should not be confused with the more “natural”
feelings that feel from our loved ones are still around us. As our
relatives and close friends pass on, they do indeed watch over us – and
often we can sense their presence. This type of communication is positive.
There is a difference.
Remember, not every occurrence is a negative experience. For instance, when
Jorianne’s daughter Terry was a little girl, she was extremely affected
by the song, Last Kiss which is about a sweetheart who gets killed in a car
accident. Whenever Terry heard this song, she would break down in heart
wrenching, grief-stricken sobs. As a mom, Jorianne could only console her
daughter with the placid words, “It’s only a song, honey”.
Fast forward a few years - the song comes true. As an adult, Terry’s
fiancée, Mark, was killed in a truck accident.
After his death, Terry found tickets to the show, Joseph and the Amazing
Technicolor Dream Coat. Terry decided to see the show anyway and invited
her mom. Terry’s hair was pulled up into a tight elegant chignon – not
a hair was out of place. Terry and Jorianne reminisced about Mark and how
he would have loved to have been there. They felt Mark’s presence at
throughout the entire show with them. Throughout the show, Teri felt as if
someone was touching the back of her neck. At intermission break when they
went to the restroom, they discovered a portion of Terry’s hair had been
pulled from her chignon and was left hanging down her back. Terry believed
this was a loving gesture from Mark to let her know he was with her.
Life is for the living, we all have things to accomplish here and lessons
to learn but so do the dead! It is not a healthy thing for those who have
crossed over to be caught here on the earth plane when there are things
these spirits are supposed to be doing on the other side – such as
pursuing more spiritual growth. Getting stuck not only limits their
spiritual growth, but can eventually create more problems than what people
realize for those friends and relatives still here on earth.
At one house party, a lady came in asking
about her sister in law who she never knew personally since she married
into the family after the sister-in-law’s death. During the reading,
Jorianne described the woman as a biker babe, and the vocabulary she used
during the spirit communication proved it. Jorianne picked up during the
reading that her boyfriend murdered her. The thing that made this
interesting is that while the other women were in the kitchen waiting for
their readings, they had heard scuffling as though people were wrestling
and a woman’s voice yelling out, “No…mom…HELP!”. It was so loud
that all the women came to listen at the bedroom door to find out what was
going on. While reading this woman, the spirit stated that she wanted her
boyfriend in jail. Jorianne knew nothing about this case and later found
out the boyfriend was being arraigned for murder. This was one spirit that
chose to stay so her death was avenged.

Hauntings typically occur with earth bound
spirits. The spirits will often attach themselves to any person or thing
that feels secure to them; so not only can homes be haunted, but people,
places and objects can as well.
There are many famous haunted places around the United States. You can tell
these places are haunted just by walking through them. For example, a place
can often become haunted when a murder occurred there – such as in a
forest preserve, at a house or by the lake. Jorianne can guarantee that if
you are in one of these particular locations, you will become engulfed with
fear and won’t stay there for very long! This would occur only if there
are negative entities lurking around. This kind of experience can make your
hair stand on end.
Individuals can also be haunted. Jorianne has come across many cases where
people have reported being personally haunted or harassed by an unwelcome,
invisible intruder. They claim that no matter where or how many times they
move, their poltergeist continues to harass them. This may be a dark or
demonic entity. It all depends on the severity of the situation.
Another type of haunting can occur with inanimate objects, such as
furniture, an appliance or a favorite thing - like a picture frame or vase
or toys. Many times people will go to an antique store, resale shop or an
estate sale and purchase an item without knowing that a spirit has attached
itself to the piece. After a while, the new owner will begin to notice “weird”
things happening. This is often the result of a wandering spirit “attaching”
itself to the material plane and staying earthbound. This is also a good
reason, whenever purchasing an item from one of the above places, that a
clearing is done around the piece, to eliminate any energies from either
the previous owner(s) or an attached spirit.
Jorianne can assist in identifying the attached spirit, as well as in
performing the ritual to detach the spirit and send it on its way to a
spiritual plane. There are many different kinds of hauntings that have been
reported and recorded though the years.

This is a board game that has letters,
numbers and the words Yes and No. The game is played by 2 or more people.
The Ouija Board can be a dangerous tool when used by those who are
untrained or unprotected - opening doors (vortexes) into the lower astral
planes, allowing unwanted visitors to come and go as they please – AND
THEY DO! The “door” that is opened by the untrained must be closed by a
trained professional psychic. These spirits can really create chaos in not
only your home but they can also become attachments, which can lead to
mental and emotional problems for the living.
During a paranormal investigation, Jorianne determines exactly what the
source of the disturbance is. She makes contact with the lost or unsettled
spirit(s) in order to attain as much information as possible. This aids her
in the process of clearing the disturbing spirit and eliminating any
possible reattachment of the spirit that was brought in through the Ouija
Often Jorianne will want to video tape any haunted locations for research
purposes in the attempt to catch any psychic or spiritual energy on film.
This is also how spirit photographs are captured.

During many of Jorianne’s
investigations, she has come across some very unusual photographs showing
many anomalies. Some pictures actually have faces, streaks of light that
have appeared over a specific location where only a short time before a
person has died. Two photos of the same streaking light were caught in a
house during the same photo shoot, but in different rooms.
Jorianne has pictures of ectoplasm captured on film. Ectoplasm is a stringy
substance that hangs in the air usually from the ceiling. The woman home
where this was captured had reported a negative presence emanating from her

In addition to photos, Jorianne has also captured spirit voices on tape!
This happens often in séances – and makes the séance experience even
more spiritual and enjoyable.

their photographs, please contact Jorianne. You can also send in your
