The Bog Oak Talisman I Wear

IMG_8931People ask me all the time if I have something I wear to protect my self. No, but Yes. In all the years I have been hunting spirits I have changed so much. At first I would just hold my breath and hunted away in fear, then I received as a gift, a 5,600 year old bog oak wood talisman from Ireland. I was thinking what the f***. I never even knew what a talisman meant. I liked it a lot though and put it on. After wearing it for a few hours my chest started hurting where the talisman laid. I took it off and thought it was a bad thing since it hurt my chest and threw it out the van window. As it went out the window it flew back at me and let’s just say everyone in the van was shocked then wigged out. I then realized it was something special but it still freaked me out. I didn’t put it back on for months. It now is always on me everyday for a very good reason. But first, let me tell you about what the talisman is all about.
 
The talisman I wear around my neck is made of bog oak from the forests of Ireland. Hand carved and blessed by an Irish Arch Druid that has wise knowledge about creating these magical tools. The wooden talisman is cut from the tree and dried 2 – 3 years and blessed two times a day before it’s ready to be used. The wood is naturally black and the trees were living thousands of years ago, when the myths and legends from Ireland were being formed. These talisman are carved and brought to what they say is the most sacred and magical place in all the land of Ireland, Tara Hill, and then blessed and charged by Adge. In Irish mythology it is said to be the sacred place of the gods and a doorway to other worlds. Tara Hill they say is truly one of the sacred places on earth and is the center of an enormous energy vortex. That’s a special piece of wood I wear around my neck J
 
After I threw the talisman out the window cause it hurt my chest,
I learned that it was actually working. It was taking away the negative and helping me. I thought it was hurting me. Well, if you disrespect your talisman then it won’t work for you anymore. So I kept it to take home. As I was flying home I remember looking at it in my bag thinking, “oh great, bad luck charm now on the plane with me.” Not a good place to have it. When I got home I never took it out of my bag and forgot about it for a few days. When I did look for it, it was gone. I figured it fell out on the plane. I felt bad cause it was a very special object I had. 

A month goes by and I always think about how my chest hurt from the talisman, I thought about it often. Here is when it all changed and we reunited again, on a lockdown in a place I was really worried about and scared. I was at Essex Insane Asylum and we just get locked in. As I open the camera case to get the gear ready for the hunt, I notice my talisman is wrapped up in the camera I use. This was odd because I just checked the camera and put batteries in all the gear and it wasn’t there. From that point the gear stays in my room until I take it to the car and headed to location. So I know the gear never left my site. I have no idea how it got there and why, but I put it on and vow to never let it leave me again. This was so odd that it flew back at me and I lost it and it came back that I just didn’t question it anymore. I understand there are things in life that are in a way magical and mysterious. My talisman is one of them.
 
Over the years, there have been a few other times this talisman has made me believe even more in it.
 
1. I took it off to show some friends. I don’t let people touch it ever unless I feel their vibe is safe, and told them all about it. As my necklace just hung there from my finger, the talisman started moving upwards like a person on a swing and started going back and forth. Everyone jumped back and freaked out. I never took it off for years after that except when I shower. 
 
2. Sometimes I meditate and light candles in a circle and just find my ora. As I was thinking about Astral Projection and so much more, the talisman started to lift up and pull away from my neck. I snapped out of it and took it off. I threw it out of the circle and realized I shouldn’t have done that. Just then, a jar flew off my counter in the kitchen and shattered all over the floor. I felt like maybe I was tricked and took it off. Like something was pulling it off me and then, not thinking, I took it off. Why do I feel like that? Well, it wasn’t until after the Voodoo lockdown I realized why.
 
3. I never put my talisman back on for about four months. About three weeks after I took it off I went and did the Voodoo ritual on Ghost Adventures. If u watch all the episodes, I’m always wearing it but not then or after, for a while. I went through nine months of a depression from that Voodoo ritual. For the first three months I never thought once about putting it on. After I realized it I put it back on and things got a little better for me. It still took me many days and nights to get through it but I concentrated on working on my stuff at home and traveling for Ghost Adventures. I live, work, breath, and sleep in the scary world of paranormal but that’s how its supposed to be. I’m learning too much not to pay attention to what’s happening around me. 
 
So, now I wear it again every day. Since the first season of Ghost Adventures it’s been on my neck and will be until I am no more. One more thing, one time someone punched me in the chest joking around and hit me hard right on the talisman. The hit knocked the wind out of me. It hurt so bad, then I realized after I looked down at my shirt, that my talisman is stuck in my chest and I’m bleeding all over. It felt like I was branded like superman in the TV show Smallville, LOL. As I pulled it away from my chest it was sticking in my skin. It felt so weird pulling it away from me. Like a bandage that’s stuck to a wound, but i realized my blood was on it and the talisman was in me in a way. Sounds odd, but that’s how it is, odd things with it. I continue this journey with all I have to face and fear along with it.

I believe the talisman doesn’t keep me safe from spirits but keeps me and my ora grounded. Now I’m understanding why the talisman fell in my lap. Its funny how life works, one day u live a normal life as a Production Cameraman to a real life Spirit Hunter. My point is, I thank the way the world works and for receiving this talisman. It really helped me believe even more that spirits roam with me and what I wear on my neck is no joke. If I was to lose it again then that’s the way it is and I won’t need it then. But I plan on having it the rest of my existence in this human body. It’s been with me the entire Ghost Adventures journey.

Hi there Arron! I have been watching Ghost adventures since day 1.
I am a big fan of the show…but you seem to be the one who’s energy
Is grounded and keeps the other members grounded. After I watched
Your recent halloween special my heart hurt for you..seeing you break down and cry it became clear to me
That you really were touched by “him” I always believe in something after death but to see it happen to you in such a sad and painful way
All I could do was pray for you and your soul! You and the guys do this to show others about life after death and you do it well! I believe that you have a purpose to this work and you will be able to reclaim yourself!!

Hello again Aaron! I hope all is well with you and I am very happy to see that the bog oak talisman I gave you guys has helped you as I hoped it would. You guys went into some pretty scary and potentially dangerous places and that talisman was the most powerful form of protection I have ever encountered in the 35 years I have been researching and experimenting in the paranormal field. It was made by my dear friend and arch druid Adge right at the top of Tara Hill. The one I wear has saved my butt on more than one occasion. There is more to the nature and powers of that talisman than I told you all those years ago. They are still very rare, but I do have a few more should you need any. If you have any questions about the talisman or problems with hostile spirits or NEGS as I call them, let me know and I would be happy to help. Blessings, Marcus

This is a response to Marcus: Marcus, you mentioned in your post that you had several more of the talismans. I would be very interested in purchasing one if possible. My email is charmedgrrl at aol dot com. If you could let me know as to whether you still have any left and wish to sell one, I would greatly appreciate it.

Many thanks and Blessed Be to you!

To whom I consider a sweet and wise old soul:

Aaron, I just adore you, Nick and Zak. I, too, have spent my life (24/7 — before and after my normal paying “job”) studying and experiencing my passion in this physical existence. Since the age of 12 and after seeing the beloved ghost of my grandfather at the foot of my bed only hours after his death and before my family found out he had passed over, I have spent every free moment studying and experiencing everything spiritual, both conventional and non-conventional. Now at the age of 59, my quest for knowledge is still strong. I believe anything is possible (if interested in details, I would love to hear from you and share).

In all of these years of study I have found that the most compelling and “valid” physical learning “tools” is the life documentation of Jane and Robert Butts and the Seth materials books and recordings. All of the original transcripts are housed at Yale University’s Sterling Library, but most of these transcripts have been published by Jane and Rob, and the Seth Network. I would love to suggest that you start reading and studying the Seth material.

With lots of love and hugs,

Dori

Hi Aaron. It seems like there might be a little apportation going on with the Talisman. I had the same problem with a pair of earrings which kept appearing in strange places. I would lose one and then find it stuck inside a book or something, then lose the other one, and find it on a sidewalk. I got so frustrated I threw them out. Anyway, I was taught by a Wiccan HP to always wear a “dark stone” to deflect negative energy. That is why we wear black at funerals and such. I wear “Apache’s Tear” or black clothing. However, since this is your “dark stone”, the more you wear it, the more your energies will be aligned with it. That is why it keeps coming back to you. Sometimes stones or Talismans need to be cleansed if you feel uncomfortable while wearing it. This is easily done by leaving it outside in a “sacred” spot, such as a circle made with salt, on a rock or anyplace that feels good to you. Leave it under a full moon all night and see if that helps.

Best of Luck

Hey, I was reading about u and was going to tell u how it was back in the 70’s, I went to washington tacoma and took class in radio and tv advertizing and really had my heart into it I learned how to run cameras and run a radio station. Took all that time and energy and loved it, my 1st job was with fashion Island a small tv cable station in New Port Beach, California, (my home) got on the job training and then went and applied at Walt Disney studios to work as a camer woman, lol . I was on cloud nine for 3 months and they finally told me (after I called them back) They did not hire women to run their cameras. So, my Dream went into toilet bowl :<. So I admire u and I wish I had , had the opportunity, I would not be where I am now that is for sure. All tho your thoughts and actions are a little darker, we see who u really are inside it peeks out now and then on the show. Good luck and God bless all of you. PS I think you are brave always going off investigating on your own.

Hi Aaron,
I read your story about your talisman, really interesting. I believe it came to you, for you to have and learn from.
I have watched the show from the start and watch the 3 of you grow, all in diifferant ways.
I was happy to watch you come out of your shell and be more comfortable with yourself and your job.
Your weight loss and your artist sense is exciting to you I can tell but, for me, the most exciting thing is to see and hear you become sensitive to your surroundings. I mean I think you are a sensitive /empath. You seem to pick up on the spirits around you at work and you are open to it.
I don’t know how you are at home but I suspect you have many feelings there as well.
Please don’t go to far and always respect those who come to you. If they come in peace then find out what they want and try to help them on their way. If you feel they are negative then demand they leave.
You are a good spirit and unlike Zak and Nick you have a deep sense of right and wrong. Please always stay with that. It is your protection from evil.
I love art and would love to get something someday that you made with your own hands but can’t do that right now.
I will keep watching and praying that you stay safe.
Good luck in all your endeavors.

Love the show. I’ve wondered about your safety, worried about the crew being harmed. If you guys use provocation tools or techniques to open communication with spirits/entities, do you then close what you’ve opened, after filming? I know you have used priests for blessings and minor exorcisms (a smart thing). Have you used someone like an advanced medium to help you? The Exorcist house episode was so powerful, the negative energy was overwhelming… via TV. I was concerned about ‘the board’ re-inviting negative entities back into the home, thus allowing them more ammunition to torment you. Aaron. please be sure to check out your necklace; consider contacting an advanced medium/occult specialist, such as a Michelle Belanger type. You probably know all this, just reaching out as a caring fan. Dark forces are tricksters. A hidden curse, or negative influence could be at work. If your spiritual roots are Christian, be sure this piece is not one of a negative origin/occult/craft. Giving you a false sense of security, I don’t know. Don’t wait – I’m not an expert. I never write investigators. This is my first. Your fans need you and your team in one piece. No need to respond… be safe. Take care. Donna 😉

Aaron,

I’m so glad I read what you wrote and how you brought out your true feelings about this object. It’s made me believe about some things I have that never leave my side and why. I’ve watched you guys since you started. Seen every episode at least 3 times. Some even more. I’ve read Nicks book a few times only to try to feel and see his portion of your guys great adventure over and over again. It’s crazy to some people when I say I actually feel like I know you guys so well. I’ve defiantly seen how different you are even if it is only through TV and blogs. Zak is no different. There’s no way you guys can have and go through the experiences you have and see the things you do without changing immensely. No other paranormal show comes close. I’ve seen them all and no crew brings out the feelings and emotions that you guys do. If there is one thing I’d love to see but probably won’t is the crew getting together with my other favorite person who knows so much about the paranormal. Amy Allen. I can only imagine what would happen between you two getting together. Sorry I got off the subject. Seems to happen every time cause there is so much I want to say end get out. I’ve made a copy of your talisman blog and have it on my wall. Thanks for sharing this with everyone and please don’t stop letting us know how things are out there on the road and what effects you guys so much. I have two daughters that are hooked and we are enjoying as much as we can of your adventures all time.

Love you guys
GA forever

Nice story Aaron. That’s a cool Talisman you got there. Although, it wouldn’t hurt to have a blessed cross on during your lockdowns. At the end of the day though, your Angels protect you. Everyone comes into Utero, with up to six assigned Angels, to protect them during their Earth walk. Those “anomaly’s” that Zak documents as orbs of light are usually Angels, and that’s why we see them around you guys during your lockdowns. There’s a lot of info on the internet about Angel Orbs.

That aside, I’m fascinated about your comment on Astral Travel as I practice it quite a bit. I’ve actually helped people who had sleep issues and/or were catatonic from Astral Travel during their sleep and didn’t realize they had challenges entering back into the body before awakening. Do you Astral Travel while conscious, during sleep, or both? I have both experienced myself.

May Aaron always be blessed and protected from all evil entities. Thank you Angels for protecting Aaron, and GAC team, from bad juju during investigations, and always. A-Men

Ya know Aaron I’m a Catholic and I see where your coming from. I believe in St Jude Thadeus He’s the patron of hopeless cases. I believe He’s helped me a few times and I where His medal all the time, I feel uncomfortable when I don’t. Now to me that talisman is meant for you and you alone, there is a reason for this and you being in the type of situation you are should realize this above all! Take care of it and obviously it will do it’s job for you. Thanks for sharing these little things it makes you seem more accessible to your fans, I know I appreciate it!I don’t go out much and tv is my enjoyment especially your program and a few others, but there are too many “ghosthunters ” out there that thin k because they buy recorders and other paraphenalia they know what they’re doing! Just keep doing what you’re doing I love you guys and can’t wait for Friday! Thanks Maggie

Wow that is absolutely fascinating. I’m a Celtic Polytheist (Irish Celtic Pagan) and love this story, That truly is a special tailism. It’s rare that I read something that so resonates with me and with my belief system. I know it will continue to ground you (and I believe protect you though I can understand if you don’t feel that way). That land (especially the Hill of Tara) is filled with old strong spirituality. Oaks are very protective trees plus the strength of the old kings as well as the kind folk of the old ones. Blessings to you Aaron and safe hunting!

Aaron, I really enjoyed your blog about the Talisman. I am, myself, maybe too superstitious. And from your words in the blog I wouldn’t question it. Just know it is meant to be with you for your protection. I don’t have anything I wear but I believe I have been watched over and protected too many times in my life to not believe in something I do not completely understand but that makes perfect sense at the same time. I am Cherokee Indian, Irish, and a Black Dutch. I am mostly Native American and feel a strong connection there without any real reason that I know of. I hope to do more geneology on my father’s side to see what I can find out. I know my dad just knows things, has been DOA and brought back and speaks in a voice of something out someone else when he’s doing sleep and my mom is able to talk to him and find things out or be told certain things are about to happen. This man says he cannot say who or what he is. Have you ever heard anything like that pertaining to Native Americans? Just curious.

I love you, Nick and Zac on the show and have seen almost all the shows. You guys are awesome.

Aaron,

Glad to hear I am not the only one that wears a talisman, although mine is jade and doesn’t have the history your talisman has. I will share with you though, that I did not find a true connection to my jade until I bled onto it as well. Glad to hear at least one of the three boys on GA are protected. Keep up the search for the paranormal.

This was so interesting Aaron! I have been following the Ghost Adventures show since the beginning. I myself am a very spiritual person. Raised Catholic was a starting ground for what I’ve learned about spiritual warefare! I would call myself a Seer rather than a Medium. I have a gift of seeing & communicating with souls. I am very aware of negative dark energy vs. a lost soul who hasn’t moved on. I keep ALL of you involved in lockdowns in my prayers for protection. Read chapter 91 in the book of Psalms. That is the ultimate prayer of protection! I Love You Guys!
A Forever Fan, Laurie Young

Very cool story! You have a very special piece there. How awesome that you came across something like that.

Isn’t it funny how when you really pay attention to the little things… They make perfect sence?
I think you are correct in that the talisman keeps your aura grounded. Though maybe you should also look at it this way…
It also seems to protect your spirit. I say this because of your story about being in the circle. If you were thinking of Astral Projection and a spirit was trying to get you to take off the talisman… Your spirit leaves the body during astral projection. This also leaves your body vulnerable for another spirit to enter your body. So… If a spirit was trying to get you to remove your talisman… Maybe he was looking to enter your body, but couldn’t with the talisman on. Though nothing should be able to enter your circle unless you haven’t protected it properly.
Lol sorry I could go on and on about this stuff. And I have no idea how extended your knowledge is in this stuff. I’ll shut up now. :p
Just something to think about… Be safe, and be well.

Hey Aaron, im a huge fan of the show as well as all of you, I too do some paranormal investigating on my own in cemeteries and such. I am wiccan and believe in talismans and such things as they are very powerful tools to help in ones life, You are very lucky to have something as powerful as that around your neck for it is a great tool for the field of work we do, it helps protect us from negativity and only allows the positive energy be around us. I have watched episodes of the show and some of the things that have happened to you all is some scary s*$t but without all three of you, having each others back and all of your energy is positive and uplifting, so you are all able to help each other through the bad things as in possession and spirits attaching themselves to you all, you must all remember that what ever gods you believe in that they surround you with positive energy and white light of protection. Some of the stuff that happens to you all, scares even me and I’ve been doing this for years, but the energy you all three have is very positive and reassuring to the other, so never loose that friendship guys for it keeps you safe on those long locked up nights. Keep doing what you guys do best and stay safe, im happy to call you guys friends, even though we have never met, if you guys ever get to Canada come to Saskatoon, I’ve heard of a house that changes owners like crazy as no one wants to stay in the house, but its just something I’ve heard, I’ve never investigated there but would love to some day. Keep up the good work, hugs and positive thought your way.

I’m glad you have a talisman to protect you. You need it in what you do. Most people do not believe in the use of them and just think of them as jewelry. That it keeps returning to you shows that it was meant to be your and yours alone. You have be truly blessed by the old gods. Always honor it and keep it close by. Bless Be.

Aaron,
It is wonderful that you have been blessed with such an object. It seems it has found its way home to you. Have you been to Ireland yet? Perhaps you should visit. I loved it there.
Blessed Be! Veretta

Thanks so much for sharing. I agree with you. It is amazing how somethings chose you, not the other way around. I have build mine over the years and include an agate my grandfather found. I really love your show and have been watching it since the beginning. Thanks for being there. Wendy

Life is really interesting but somehow someway no matter what it will always work out.It might not be the outcome that you want at the time but eventually it all makes sense in the end.I have had a similar experience with an object “that kinda picked me”.I always was a believer of the paranormal (since I was a kid). But after going through a really intense massage therapy school it really opened my eyes to what is really out there and what my role is in the world.

That is a crazy cool history. I had a stone like that once, but it left me for good several years ago. Does that kind of go along with your religious shift? I know that’s personal but it has been interesting to watch you change so much since the documentary.

That’s a really cool talisman, Aaron. It obviously means a lot to you. I guess you already realize that wearing a talisman blessed by a Druid is a very pagan thing to do. 😉 It’s also interesting that you’re into astral projection. You guys might enjoy a trip to The Monroe Institute. They teach astral projection and there are always spirits around waiting to interact with the people who leave their bodies. I’d be really interested to know if any of you guys ever experience sleep paralysis, and if so, what you feel causes it. Best wishes and stay safe. Gotta get back to my GAC marathon now. 🙂

Aaron,

You are very lucky. The talisman was sent to you because you were meant to have it. You have special qualities and have special purpose in life which you might not be fully aware of at this time. What you do is dangerous and risky but there is a good side to it too. Be careful and keep grounded. Continue meditating so that you can keep in contact with your inner self and what it is trying to tell you.

You make people laugh and obviously brighten their lives which is important nd your lifestyle is different but your message is wise and inspirational. Your photos are fantastic as well.

Take care;

Kay

And after all this crazy shit are you still wearing it?? I’m sorry but I think that it would be better a blessed Christian cross or a necklace about Vergin Maria or something about Arcangelo Michele… And be sure that if you take it off one of these, certainly they don’t be angry like you talisman does….
My god, don’t trust this strange things… If it is good it wouldn’t act like this… And sorry for my English, I’m Italian:p and also I wrote you a private message on this site, please answer me or I…. I don’t know what to do but please… Read and answer me or you’ll have one more ghost because of you :p

I understand what you said and felt, life is a gift. I’m getting ready to send my grandson a medicine bag, he’s on his in the Army and on his way to Kuwait, again. I do little things like this to my 2 grandkids, one girl one boy. Both are now in their 20’s, and yes they love me but know I think very different from others. I’m Wiccan, seek orbs and spirits and I see a lot of things. I have told 3 different folks, it’s OK to go. They were just waiting for someone to tell them, a few hours later, they were gone and I was thanked. I also see the person who comes to take them. Wife named Pat, husband named Tom. He died years ago, like 20 yrs. She’s very sick, and is lingering. One day I looked at her and asked what cloths she buried her husband in. Why, I told her what he had on, how he stood, and why he was here. I’m not sure what to think and how to deal with what I see, but I go out day or night and take picture’s at cemetery’s and I love it, use those rod’s also, and my little bell. Records kept. I wear talisman, but nothing like yours, bless it every day and say thank you every day. That gut feeling we get, it’s right, so listen. Blessed Be, Linda

Aaron,

I really liked this Blog. It is a really interesting and mystical story. I imagine it’s not easy to get your hands on a talisman, so your very lucky to have it. I often find myself thinking of things in a deeper way than other people. Like why certain things happen, if they were suppose to happen that way, or if even at all. If fate exsists, or if we truly control our destinies. No one I know really wants to talk about stuff like that so I look to my computer and see what other people out there in the world have for an opinion. Anyway. Long story short. I loved your blog, and I love the show, you are my absolute favorite. Keep being you, and doing what you do. I think you just have to be an awesome person all the way around. Thanks for giving me something to do every Friday, and sometimes Saturday.

Great story of your talisman, if you feel it works as you do and believe in it’s power then you’d be a fool not too wear it. You believe it keeps your ora grounded I’m sure it does, and i believe it works in other ways as well, me i just believe in God, Jesus Christ who died for our sins and woke from the dead too one day come again as the Bible says,i believe in my faith, faith in God,i had a cross i bought from our church (trinity babtist) it’s a pretty big church when i went there, but they were made and sold for money for the church, but it’s made with two pieces of some type of very hard black steal or metal and had like a copper very this wrapped around tightly to hold the two pieces together, was held on your beech by a piece of leather really cool,i wore it for a long time maybe year (s) not sure. never took it off.the leather broke,i now have it in my car, it’s been through i think 4 vehicles now it’s in my new cx5.also have a cross I’ve had for so many years i can’t remember i know over 10.i do keep them there to protect me on the road while I’m driving.does it work i believe it does…I’ve also have dealt with paranormal my whole life it’s way to much too tell, I’ve once thank God far as i know once, seen a demon, it scared me so bad the night after i talk to a Paster he told me how too anoint my house, i did and never seen it again in there.love ghost adventures, I’m a huge fan.you all be safe.thanks for your story on the talisman, was interesting, God bless, be careful bro tempting the demons, spirits ghost is one thing demons something totally different.

You’re very lucky to have that talisman. It is full of positive energy and really has a life essence of its own. I’ve had a couple of homemade ones and still do. Good work you’re doing exposing the darker side, people need to know and believe. Negative spirits and demons cannot stand against its power unless you let them. Meditation is fantastic, but don’t play with astral travel yet until you learn to shield yourself. Good luck Aaron stay positive and you can stay strong.

Great story, I have learned in life to never questions things supernatural. I used to go to the monastery here in New York called Graymoore when I was feeling down. There was a period in my life when I had recently overcome my drug and alcohol additions, when I was feeling lost, and stuck. I often felt this compulsion to go to the St. Francis Chapel. I went there again and again and poured my heart out in prayer, to the statue of St. Francis (made from his death mask) then one day an angel apparition appeared to me there. At the time I was terrified by what I saw, this thing was enormous, and I was all alone in the chapel with it very late at night. It was the biggest angel I ever could have imagined, with giant wings, and sitting in the front pew it looked as an adult would sitting in a child’s chair. I bolted out of there, and it took me the longest time to come to terms with what I saw that night. Now I realize it symbolized a period of big changes in my life. From that day forth my life changed drastically, and I went to college and graduated became a journalist, then met my wife Hana got married and had a son, and since then I have traveled the world extensively. My life is beyond my wildest dreams. I now realize there are powers in this world and not of this world for good and bad, and that was the good telling me it has my back. I think the ancient hands that carved your talisman are telling you they have your back. Thanks for the great story.

Aaron, Beloved,

I think you’re a very grounded and spiritual being. I have never doubted your authenticity as a Ghost Hunter or as a member of the Ghost Adventure Team. You are unique in your own way and bring a vital part to “The Team”. I like your blog about your Talisman. However,I have always believed you have a splendid, and very strong aura before knowing anything about your Talisman. I am glad it found you and vice versa. I always enjoy you on your expeditions; especially your candid and very real facial expressions. You are amazing and have a true gift. Ghost Adventures would be “Lost” without you. Keep up the hard work. I will always be watching, Blessings <3

It’s amazing at what you have found. It’s very intriguing in it’s own right how talismans come to be and become a part of your life. It’s very difficult to stay grounded, and it helps to do so as yours do for you. I have a key tattooed on my arm, to remind me to look at my chest where I have a keyhole tattooed with the heart chakra in it to remind me to always look within. Always remember to stay grounded and spirit will look out for you. Just always white light around you and ask the angels to protect you in your quest. You guys do kick ass and I think me being a sensitive would be a kickass part hahaa jus kidding.

Namaste Arron

Hi Aaron;
I have always believed in Talismans and I would love to get one; But I have heard it is bad luck to get one just for the sake of getting one, in order for it to work the Talisman must speak to you, or be given to you. Is that true??

Aaron,
You are such a strong person. I believe that the Talisman is bringing out more strength in you that you don’t realize that you have. I’ve watched GA from the beginning and we are huge fans of you and the show. We love you & Nick. Zak is good but you and Nick do the more dangerous stuff and it’s good that you have a strong belief in something so good. I pray that God protects you on your journeys with and without GAC and that the white light remains with you and protects you all the days of your life. Love & light be with you always.
Love one of your biggest fans,
Donna B
