Ireland

I can’t tell you how crazy these lockdowns in Ireland were for me. Never in my mind could I think of what happened to me, could happen. I was stoked when I found out we were going to Ireland. I’ve always heard that it was amazing. All of the history and legends that happened there makes it a very different place. We went where Halloween began 🙂 Many people have had good and bad experiences at Routh Crowen cave; mine was very good. It was so awesome to crawl under the earth! I was uneasy at first but I then realized that I needed to go there. You’ll learn why in the new book that I’m writing. But during that moment I knew this was going to be the lockdown of my life, and it was.

After leaving the hole of Halloween, as I like to call it, we got back to our hotel, which was a real castle. It was wicked creepy with the forest as its back yard. I was outside one night when I heard a woman scream from the woods. I heard, “Nooooo!” I thought some one was dying! About twenty minutes later a cop drove up to the hotel, which is in the middle of nowhere. I went up to him to see if what I heard was the reason he was there. He had heard no reports of anything suspicious, but went to check it out. It was so late at night that I went to my room and passed out. The next morning the cop told the hotel that nothing had happened and that it was all good. Later on the trip I learned that what I heard was the banshee. I learned about this at the next location…

The Hellfire Club. Ok, let’s rewind. Years ago we investigated the Hellfire Cave where I participated in a ritual performed by Lady Snake to bring out the vibe of the cave. Let’s just say that moment hasn’t left me till this day.

Ever since the ritual of the Hellfire Cave, I have felt different, but in a good way. Then we hunted the Hellfire Club and I have never felt so much at home. As we reached the top of the mountain I sensed more and more a feeling of being comfortable. I had no idea that as soon as I walked into the building made of tombstones robbed from the ground, I would have flashes of what it used to look like. I could see the parties and the rituals going on. I don’t know if it was me, or if it had to do with the ritual I did at the Hellfire Cave years ago, but in an odd way, I felt right at home. And because of my past with the Hellfire Cave, I knew this was going to be the one experience that I’d been waiting for.

Lockdown night. As I walked to the Hellfire Club I started to think this could be my last day. That thought kept going through my mind on the drive up the hill. I thought, “Ok we need to stop real fast.” If you haven’t read my blog about my talisman then do it now, and then come back to this. I’ve worn this talisman for almost the whole time that I have been hunting. When I first walked around the Hellfire Club and had my moments of familiarity, my talisman started to burn my chest. I thought that maybe I bumped into something at first, but I knew exactly what was happening after feeling the pain. What really started to kick in was the fact that my talisman is from the boke wood found in Ireland. It almost felt like the wood around my neck was activating or coming alive! As we left the Hellfire Club, after the interviews, I couldn’t shake the visions and feeling of this place. I am nervous, but excited to find out what went down tonight in the lockdown!
For years, I’d get asked the question, “If you could interview anyone dead or alive, who would it be?” I always say the devil. I just think it’s the interview that would tell his side of the story. I mean, just an interview and nothing else! I don’t want to go to hell, lol!

Well after some time and getting home and through a few dreams, I think I did. That moment when my ear was grabbed, a thousand thoughts flashed through my mind. After like five seconds I got back to myself and ran out. As I stood there, all these emotions ran through me and I started to cry. All I could think was that it’s too late, it doesn’t matter anymore, and I’m fucked. But after about ten minutes of getting myself together again, all I could feel was that deep down, I knew that the devil had touched me. I didn’t want to say it out-loud because I would have sounded stupid, but after a bit I did. Lets just say that hearing it from the same banshee voice I have been hearing all week say, “Satan,” just proved me right. Knowing that made my heart drop. Sitting there on the hill where the devil once stood, and knowing my history with the hellfire group, I knew that there was a reason for what had just happened to me. I’m not saying I like the feeling, because to this day, I still feel those emotions. Every single day.

As we went down the hill I couldn’t shake what had just happened. I would gain my composure and be ok for about a minute, but then it was back to an emotional rollercoaster. We stopped, and all I could do was break down. As I explained, “This is a way of life,” we heard a woman scream, “Noooo.” This was my second time hearing her on this trip. I realized that my life wasn’t normal nor will it ever be, but this time it went too far with the evil of a spirit. It was the worst of the worst.

When I say that it’s too late and stuff, I mean that I’m kinda fucked in a way. Getting touched by the worst spirit, ‘the devil,’ was no easy thing to shake. I still haven’t shook the feeling. It feels like I’m reminded every day.

LOFTUS HALL

As soon as we walked into the building I started having flashes. I visited some of the rooms in my dreams a week before I even saw Loftus Hall. As we pulled up to the most haunted house in Ireland, it was almost like we went back in time. Knowing what happened at this location with the devil, the hellfire club, and everything, I knew deep down that this was going to be the toughest lockdown I’ve been on yet. I knew it because of what I had just went through earlier. Hearing the stories of the guy who owns the hall put odd thoughts in my head. It was almost like I had heard the story before.

For about a week and a half before this lockdown, I was having nightmares about one room. The room ended up being the room where the girl was chained up to a bed. When he opened the doors I just about passed out. I knew this was the spot in my dreams. I felt as if I was back…

As I sat at the poker table, I started to think that it was a really bad idea. But, I’ve been this far so why not? In my mind, I was so nervous and scared. All I could think about was like, the door opening and it’s battle time. You know like at the start of Saving Private Ryan… The door to the landing boat drops and bam! D-Day! Having to just to sit there and wait, not knowing what was coming. Dude! I was there for a while, about ten to fifteen minutes, and when I started feeling a presence around me. As I sat there, I felt like I couldn’t move, but at the same time I could move it was just that I didn’t want that kind of feeling. I figured the best way to get activity was to start dealing the cards. After dealing to four positions (I don’t know why I did that), I picked my cards up. No joke, it was three sixes. I thought, “Of course it is.” There wasn’t any good feeling after that. I felt like I just entered a movie you see on TV. The last week flashed before my eyes, and the touch I felt at the Hellfire Club kicked in. Then that’s when the figure showed up on my shoulders and my other ear was touched. I’m in a zone and not afraid of what’s happening. I was in a ‘zone comma,’ as I like to call it. I could feel the spirit or evil being on me as it just chilled there. Putting my hand out and the entity reaching for it felt so odd. It was almost as if it was my pet. It would leave then come back to me again. As time went on, the guys went to other places in the house and I stayed there alone. I couldn’t move. Like in the movie Kill Bill when she’s like, “Wiggle your toes. Wiggle your toes!” and finally does. That was me, telling myself to get up over and over again! After about ten minutes I finally snapped out of it and stood up. This is when I went out side and threw up a little bit before regrouping with the guys.

As soon as I left the card room my talisman started to get hot and my chest began to burn. My chest burned for three days and then the pain finally went away. As we hunted the night away I felt that I was in a different place. It was almost as if I was back to finish something that I had started in a different lifetime.

Ireland. It was a trip that I never will forget.

When I got home all hell broke loose on me, ya know that kinda thing. I basically hung out on my own for two months and worked. I was in a state of depression, choosing not to talk to anyone about it. I was still seriously affected by the lockdown. So, I just sat back and watched and listened to the crazy paranormal stuff going on at my house. Chilling at the house with, what all I can explain as the scariest spirit ever. To this day I still can’t shake the feeling I had at the Hellfire Club. But what I learned on this hunt will be something that I will never forget.

People ask me of I get cleansed. I don’t. I will when I’m finally done hunting. Until then, I will learn from every experience and every lockdown. This lockdown taught me that once, in a past life, I was maybe part of the Hellfire Club. Ok, there is so much more to this, but you will have to wait until my book comes out! 🙂

Aaron, are you aware of the Bobby Mackey/Ireland connection??

In saying this, I can’t help but be concerned in regards to the traumatic experiences you suffered after Bobby Mackey’s and again during this past trip to Ireland. It is no surprise or coincidence that the most volatile experiences your crew suffered occurred in those two locations. A least no surprise to someone born and raised in Eastern Ky, such as myself. You see the people born in Ky are all descendants of Irish and Scottish immigrants who fled religious persecution in their own countries and settled in the mountains of Eastern KY which reminded them of home. They brought with them their religious and supernatural beliefs which intermingled with those of the Native Americans who were already inhabiting the area. To this day their ancient religious practices are still followed in Eastern Ky only. in fact a few years ago the Smithsonian came and recorded the ancient singings to preserve them. Until then these singings had only been recorded by oral histories passed down through the mountain people. The singing itself is more provoking, healing, and terrifying than any experience or exorcism you’ve ever had. There are people who have had anxiety attacks just listening to the first few seconds of it. I understand you are a collector of unusual things. This music would be the most unique of your collection and the best protection you could have against anything dark. You see at Bobby Mackey’s a dark child attached itself to you and in going to Ireland you took him home. The banshee warned you and Satan touched you in acknowledgement. What I don’t understand is why that preacher you had at Bobby Mackey’s didn’t take you to be cleansed and healed before you left as is our way. I guess not much can be done about that now. I’m going to direct you to a website where you may have to purchase the recordings. I apologize but the only other way to hear it would be live in an Old regular Baptist church in Ky. The website is http://www.folkways.si.edu/indian-bottom-association/old-regular-baptists-lined-out-hymnody-from-southeastern-kentucky/american-folk-sacred/music/album/Smithsonian. I recommend the songs “I am a poor pilgrim of sorrow” and ” I am going to the city.” This music is called line singing and it has been used since the beginning of creation to fight off what’s got ahold on you guys. It will stir emotions you never knew you had and heal things you never knew were broken if you let it. This music is ancient and powerful and not to be disrespected. I wish you well on your journey and apologize that you weren’t taken better care of in Ky.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth

Aaron,

Why wait to get cleansed? I don’t understand why if you get depressed why you feel you need this feeling in your life. Get cleansed whenever you feel you need to. Depression is nothing to play with. If in fact you felt the Devil, go to get cleansed. Everyone has self worth in life. Just go through life happier and don’t think you are doomed to be fucked. Things we did in our lives, don’t mean anything as we grow.. We change and our views change. No one is fucked. Seek help.

Aaron my daughter and I recently saw that episode here in the UK, we were both felt for you, in a strange way wanted to protect/shield even pull you out from the situation, my talisman is a solid silver ring which has the gemstone tigers eye set in it, this is a stone that protects me and my family, we too have experienced odd things, but for you all we ask is that you stay safe.

I have watched this episode countless times since it aired. Each time it’s like I’m watching it for the first time again. I’ve never been so affected by an episode before. All the emotions that come out I can completely feel, like I was there or had been there. It’s hard for me to describe without sounding crazy I guess.

Tonight for some reason I decided to look more in depth at your website and came across your blogs. I just want to say I don’t reply to blogs, I just really like reading others experiences, info and advice. I comment on Twitter and Instagram, but I am a pretty private person. I’ve been hurt by a lot of people in my life so I tend to just journal to keep it private. I tell you this only to make you understand, it’s a big step for me to leave a comment like this for all to see and explain how much the show and your blog entry affected me. When I got done reading the entry I realized that I was crying, I mean really crying and had been completely unaware of it. I felt every emotion that you wrote. I am in no way saying I know what you went through, because I don’t, I just had some major emotions. I just wanted to share this with you, I don’t know why, just felt like the right thing to do(I’m not crazy, I promise,lol). I had many paranormal experiences as a kid, still so vivid it’s as if it happened yesterday. I would have “dreams” that I now know were not really dreams. I had an instinct that was usually right, but no one understood it or the emotions that it made me feel. I still have paranormal experiences, nothing like what you do, but enough to affect me. I don’t get scared, there’s a reason for it, I understand that now. It is what it is, I’m a better person for what I have experienced. You have helped me realize that, and not feel like there’s something wrong with me and there never was.

Thank You for sharing so much, you have NO idea how many things you have inspired me to do that I have wanted to do all my life, but never had the confidence or the belief in myself. My life is headed in a better direction and I can’t thank you enough for all the inspiration you have given me. You are an amazing, talented, funny, kind hearted, inspiring person, don’t ever change!! Thank you Aaron for being YOU and helping me finally be ME!! ☺️

Aaron,

I have prayed for you and the team for many years now. I understand the fascination with the supernatural because I experience it every day. Thankfully, I experience the peace and love of my Creator. You are going down a path that only leads to destruction.You are allowing evil entities access to you. They only want your torment and demise Aaron. Don’t give them place!! I have authority and power over every evil demon in hell or earth by the power of the Blood of the Lamb. The life is in the blood. You know this. Satan is a deceiver Aaron. Don’t be blinded or destroyed by thinking you can handle this without the Blood of Jesus. There is FREEDOM from oppression in His blood, the blood of His sacrifice for you. Talk to Jesus Aaron, Don’t you think He will answer. You can hear God’s voice if you choose to. You will never regret being touched by God.

That sinking dark feeling mixed in with all that fear.. I tell you, that episode scared the sh** out of me, and not because it was a scary episode but because I think I know how you felt. I feel that fear every night, that sinking feeling like “I’m screwed”. Feels like your being watched and by something so unsettling that you feel your heart race and the urge to run, scream, and cry. Only difference is you look for these things. I hate this feeling and I don’t even know if it is my imagination or not , I don’t understand how you can handle this stuff. I fear for you man. Seriously.

Aaron, I saw the Ireland episode on Halloween, read your blog, seen your vlogs…and I may not know what you are going thru but I’ve been thru some similar incidents and you did good by sharing and not staying locked in a place of depression is not good. I may not know you you personally and I probably well never met you but if you do ever read this please remember that you are not alone…I know when shit like what have happened to us…it’s hard to share with others because people may think we are crazy but we aren’t…we are more in touch with ourselves than others.What am I saying??? Babbling as usual. Anyways Aaron you r doing good by talking about your incidents and that’s great you are writing a book… that’s something my friends and family trek me I should do the same. Ive been to hell and back seen things and done things that a girl who believes in Jesus Christ shouldn’t do by god even experience…Bottom line don’t lose your faith even if it’s just a lil…TAKE CARE OF YOU (Like on PrettyWoman)..

Aaron,

Watching the halloween special and seeing the part were you were terrified, definitely intense. I honestly do hope you are ok and even if you prefer to wait til you finish ghost hunting, if things get pretty bad, you should get cleansed. Please be careful and definitely enjoying these latest episodes.

Hi Aaron, I really enjoyed the GAC Halloween episode! I don’t believe hell exists anymore… I think satan, demons and other negative entities have chosen to block off light/love from source. On earth, we experience duality and have free will to do so. I guess these demons are just stuck here on earth because they oppose going back to god (our creator). It would be cool to know exactly what happened and whether these beings actually existed physically on earth. Can’t wait for your book to come out!

Aaron, I have watched Ghost Adventures from the very beginning and have likewise seen all three of you grow and change over the years – you most of all. I absolutely believe we all have a destiny and purpose to fulfill in this life and as difficult as your life can be at times, I know you are exactly where you need to be. Having said that, I can only imagine the sacrifices you’ve had to make for that destiny (losing your marriage comes to mind) but I don’t believe you’re “fucked.” I will go to my grave believing good will always triumph over evil and despite being touched by the source of all evil, I know you will over come it. I don’t know you Aaron, and I’m certain we’ll never meet, but I know you’re a good person and you will find the way to share that goodness with the world while you can. You already do it through your humor, your photographs, and sharing what you learn through your lockdowns with the world. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. So stay brave, be safe and please never let yourself succumb to despair. The devil may have touched you, but it’s the Lord who loves you. Signed, a friend.

This situation you are in can be fixed. I’m Native American (fullblood traditional) and too be honest, I struggled with contacting you. If you would like to know how to clean your self and your home of spirits, just send a quick e mail. I noticed ppl using “smudge” on you… I cringed simply because no one asked if the smudge was prayed on and you want some confirmation on what you saw, My people saw a man like the man in the castle with hoofed feet. he very well exists and our elder’s are proof he does. I wasn’t scared watching the episode, I knew…seriously, this would follow you!

Okay, just wow. I have watched the Halloween Special 3 times now. I couldn’t wait for your response on your blog to explain it all. I have always been drawn to the paranormal. I still don’t understand why I am. It’s a journey that I constantly am aware of. Someday I hope to find out what my curiosity is really about. I watch all paranormal TV but you guys are the only ones I truly believe in. My children who are now 20, 18 and 10 have always watched shows with me but my 10year old is fascinated as I was at his age. This episode however was a little to much for a 10year old to watch. He is upset that I won’t let him watch this episode(maybe in a few days I’ll let him. After I myself come to calm down from it) but the feelings and emotions from you may be hard for him to understand. It was that emotional for me. I am so thankful for your blogs in helping us understand you more and what you all go through. I am very excited about your book coming out. Maybe it will help me with unanswered questions about the paranormal. I am and have always been a big fan and supporter of you guys. Keep doing what your doing and be safe. Just know all us true fans are behind everything y’all do and are supporting you guys all the way!! Keep your talisman close and may you have peace in your life!!

I have been watching you guys for years, and I have enjoyed every one I watched, even if there was not much found in the location. I personally loved the Ireland episode, I watched it twice. This one and Doll Island are so far my two fav. out of this season. I know you guys want evidence but you should be a bit more careful though. Hope you guys are okay after what happened. The evidence you caught is awesome and insanely creepy at the same time. When the voice came out from the words it made me jump, it was amazing how clear it was, I thought someone was just messing with you guys at first. The scream Nick caught when he was in the hole, the guy has some guts to just jump down without having second thoughts. I don’t know if I would stay there and keep trying to catch more or run out screaming. I can say for sure if I heard a voice coming from the woods like that, my foot is on that gas and my ass is out of there. lol…and if something like that grabbed my ear…..I’d be done and out of there for good. I can barely deal with the shit that goes on here were I live, I sometimes just want to run screaming, I can only imagine what you guys go through on your investigations. Cleansing is a great idea, I would eventually do it if I were you. 🙂 Might get rid of some negative stuff, but who knows you guys have been around so much of it, might not be so easy to loose it. I find it amazing what you guys do, and the things you catch are just..wow.
Does catching EVPs mean the place is haunted for sure, or does it mean there is a chance it could be??? Just curious…..maybe I could figure out whats going on around here lol <3 you guys. Good Luck with your future investigations and remember Be careful….Blessed Be

Hey, Aaron. Having watched what happened to you and seeing how it affected you was hard to watch. I feel for you. I can’t imagine how intense and scary that must of been for you. It was heart breaking to see you so emotional it made me emotional. I’ve never been so emotionally affected by any other episode of GA. I felt very sick to my stomach when you got attacked and got a migraine right after watching and still have it. All weekend I’ve been thinking about this episode. i can relate to a certain degree of what your going through. I’ve came face to face with a red eyed entity when I was 6 years old. And have had (and still have) something dark attached to me. For 17 I’ve been communicating with spirits and not once have a done any kind of cleansing ritual. When you said you don’t cleanse, that worried me. And you saying how you don’t want to clear the negativity, that worried me more. This is not good Aaron. I feel you’re maybe alittle too deep in this. I believe what has a hold on you is influencing you to not take charge and get rid of it. The longer it has it’s grip on you, the harder it will be to get rid of. You guys talk about being addicted to certain places, I believe we can become addicted to spirit attachments, good or bad. Reminds me of lyrics of a song “addicted to certain kind of sadness” Do you think that you are? Is your weight loss due to negative entities sucking the life out of you? I’ve been a fan of you, the crew and GA when I discovered the show a year and a half ago. After having followed you on social media for a while, I got to see how awesome you are. How kind heart and friendly you are. You have a heart of gold and your spirit shines bright and I love that. That’s why I think demons pick on you. I feel like you have a bully at your home and you are just accepting it. I wish a happy life for you Aaron. You deserve it. You deserve a good woman by your side and a home that is YOURS and you feel safe in. Somehow I think you feel oddly comfortable with having this negative attachment. Myself I feel like I want to get rid of what’s attached to me, but a part of me doesn’t. I have so many health problems, I have a hard time functioning. One thing I often wonder about is how many people with mental illnesses actually have a demonic attachment. Or maybe all mental illness is from negative attachments.. I find myself very drawn to you and Zak. You guys have experienced Sooo much. More than any paranomal group. You guys go where others are too afraid to. Always taking things to the next level. Digging deeper to find answers and I love you guys for it. It’s crazy how much you and crew have grown throughout the years. You were scared of every little thing at the beginning, now look at you. Dancing with the devil. I don’t even know you personally, but I care a lot about you and your well being. Watching what happened to you in Ireland and what happened to Zak in the forest made me really worry about you guys. You guys have the most dangerous job there is. I admire and respect you guys for what you do. You guys are so brave and strong, it’s inspiring. To be able to meet you guys and talk about the paranormal would be so awesome. I’m glad you’re coming out with a book. I’ll be reading it for sure. Keep being awesome Aaron. I know you must still be going through a rough time, just remember you have a lot of fans who love you 🙂 Here’s a *hug* from me to you. And here’s another *hug* for later if you need it ;p. – Denise Roach (Toronto)

Aaron,

Aaron. It’s not too late. But you may not have tomorrow. I know you know the Lord, but pray… please pray. Don’t wait until you are “done hunting”. Remember the Bible says that none can be plucked from God’s hand. John 10:29. I think that was a way for the devil to scare you further from God. Claim the love and almighty power of God and Jesus Christ and I KNOW you will be saved from this. I just had this laid on my heart so deeply to share with you. I don’t usually speak out much about these types of things, I should but I don’t. Please seek deep inside yourself and know that you know that you know that God is the beginning and end. The alpha and omega.

Holy hell. You guys have done some awesome hunts, and having just re-watched your whole series through out this month, this one really had me on the edge of my seat. One thing I’ve noticed from every episode is that you go through a lot of shit. This though, wow. You sir, have balls. If I felt those claws, I’d have crapped myself, and left the country pronto.

Hi Aaron, thank you for blogging about last night’s episode. I admit, this episode was hard to watch. Seeing you in that emotional state during those experiences really affected allot of us and I felt sad after watching it and seeing what you were going through. I met you a couple of months ago which was very awesome and I remember you mentioned a few things about this particular episode. I had no idea of the magnitude of what happened to you until watching this episode. You were very nice to me and I appreciate that. I was afraid to ask to take a photo with you, and you did anyways, even though I’m sure you just wanted to not be bothered after coming back from that event, and what you were going through at home.

I admire your work, and how you carry yourself as an investigator. I myself could not endure what you guys go through on hunts every time. I grew up with some of the paranormal world around me, never needed to hunt it because it knows where to find me. All I can say is take care of yourself and take things day by day to heal. When I asked you how do recover from something like that. You said, and I quote “You don’t.” very true, there is no way you can recover from Ireland or any other of your experiences. I’ll never forget my first paranormal experience, I hope to meet you again some day so I can tell you about it and get your perspective. Thank you for encouraging people to take big steps in their lives. I did for sure this year moving to Vegas and have no regrets! I will continue to support you, Big Steppin and GAC. Take care, and be safe! You are in all of our hearts 🙂

Aaron…. Enjoyed the Celtic Demons show last night but it broke my heart to see you so affected! Then reading your blog, and reading that you are going to wait until you’re finished hunting before getting cleansed….. has me very worried! Know that once darkness and evil get inside you, they spread like a cancer, so it is very important to constantly renew your mental and spiritual health, just like your physical health! You are not alone, your job is not the only one that leaves stains on the soul, so hopefully you can find comfort and healing by surrounding yourself with those that understand and care for you! Be careful, stay safe, and best of luck with your future endeavours!

This is my 1st time reading your blog…my birthday falls on the day before Halloween so I was real stoked about watching this episode mostly because I wanted to know about the history. Ireland is breathtaking and rich in history. I am a true GA fan, this episode was different ,it made me dream. I was wondering if your talisman left a mark? I know you don’t plan on getting a limpia yet but maybe a small limpia with an egg might be something to think about….(Limpia is Spanish for cleanse….)

Wow, this was by far the craziest episode I’ve seen yet. I loved reading about what was going on in your head during all of the crazy shit that was going down. It’s fascinating to read about the dreams and nightmares you were having prior to going to Loftus House as well. I would love so much to be able to sit down with you and listen to you talk about it more. My questions would be endless. lol I think I could listen to you talk for hours about this stuff, Its so freaking cool. Do you believe in past lives and the possibility that the visions and dreams that you have had are linked to one of your past lives?

Hey Aaron.

Im glad to hear that your “ok”. I messaged Zak only minutes before finding this blog of yours. Man Im really concerned for you. Obviously we’ve never met, but some how over the years I have come to respect all of you deeply.
Aaron, Its NEVER too late. Never allow fear to rule over the knowledge of LOVE. I know i can probably sound a bit cheesy, but if I can be bold enough to recommend something? Pray the unconditional love over yourself. Im sure you have learned many techniques over the years. But reminding myself That I personally abide in that knowledge of that everlasting and unconditional loves light and energy..no matter what situation I may be faced with.
be blessed. remind yourself daily to remain in peace and love.

Keep going on, be strong. I cant wait to see your book too.

Aaron,
I have been watching you guys from the start, and i want to start investigating and was inspired by you and the guys. I am 20 and live in Wisconsin. When you started with the whole thing with the hellfire, and getting told to do big things during an inveatigation, or even doing stuff before one, all i knew was you are a great investigator. Taking risks, and learning from them. Watching the episode, I was scared for you. You have had stuff happen like, when you guys did that whole triangle thing and basically had three base camps (I forget the locations but I remember you saw something behind Zak and he freaked). You haven’t had something as big as this happen to you. I know for all of you during this investigation, it was big and everyone was affected in a way. I hope all of this can go, and you can be at peace until the next big event but I won’t pray for.it to happen because, I don’t want to see it happen to any of you guys. Much love for you and the rest of the GAC. I love what you guys do and one day want to do a lockdown with you guys. It would be a dream and an honor.

Hi Aaron, i just saw The episode and i’m like…. In silence. I’m here, in my bed, in The town of Cologno Monzese (Milan, Italy), and i’m thinking at all about I saw….in silence. No move, no comments, nothing. Just saying that i’m not even scared but so…maybe worried?! I don’t know. How many times we can nave those “pets” on our shoulder and don’t know when? Maybe also know? And if those spirits was The angels? Or , i don’t know, that identities that sucks our energy when se feel worried or depressed? ( i dead about some kind of aliens/demons/spirits doing that, they eats our negative emotions.
Anyway, you guys certanly exxpose yourself, going in that place and doing your calls/lockdown, bit please Aaron….be carefull. Awesome episode, OK, bit if you have to curse yourself only for show, no thank you, i prefer to believe in it anyway without you going on hell 🙂 takes always good energy and love with you so nobody can’t hurt you, and when you nave fear, remember that you nave with you always my and other fans love and prayers that take care of you 🙂 uffff i’m worried know for you >. -.- OK hope you feel better now with my words. Many kisses from me, an italiano that tonight don’t want to sleep (not for ghosts, but for cold Sniff :p bye, Valentina (Diana Luna)

Aaron, I know this may sound weird but I figured you would understand. I have felt a pull towards you for a long while. Not in a weird way, I think you would be a cool friend or brother type thing. Anyway, I watched the Halloween special, and before you ever let Zack know you were compelled to pick up the stone, that you had taken something. I have had things happen that have made me feel as though it was from another lifetime. I have Irish family ties but have always been drawn to go see the land. I am so pulled towards the paranormal. I have had several experiences myself in my life time already. But something seems to call to me about different places. It was if I could feel the energy through the screen. Not sure what what this all means but after watching and then reading this, I felt as if I needed to tell you. Much love to you my friend and please be careful.

Dude, I don’t think I could do what you do. It really is impressive that you can go through what you do and then continue to do it! Spirits and that stuff just creeps me out so much, makes me feel scared. I enjoyed the episode, it was really nice.

Aaron,
Wow intense read, but watching you and what you experience was even more frightening. When I was watching the episode I felt heartbreak watching you break down. I believe you had a very deep spiritual experience that we all witness to a degree. I couldn’t imagine being touched by Satan and to be honest I’m glad I haven’t. Thank you for “taking one for the team”. All your experiences opens light to the spiritual world of what good and bad things can happen. I envy your bravery and your pureness. Cheers and Stay Safe!

I watched it last night and it was a great investigation. I have had feelings like that, where I lived in Virginia and it felt more like home,then any other place I have ever lived. But yeah I hope things get better for you. I used to have a large black figure following me for years. I have not seen it in a long time, but sometimes at night I still feel it around me. So keep up the great work and always protect yourself….

Thank you Aaron for sharing your experiences and thoughts and feelings. I’ve been watching you guys from the very beginning and in some ways feel connected because you are so open with your experiences. Seeing what you went thru all I could think was I needed to hug you! I know you’re strong enough to handle your adventures. Just know alot of people love and care about you and the most important thing overall is to take good care of yourself

My daughters and I (and sometimes the hubby) watch and enjoy your show immensely. I’m not going to lie, last night’s Halloween special was amazing; but, I went away from it very concerned for you Aaron! You appear to be the jokester of the show, but I wonder if this is to mask your demons that are affecting you at any given time. After reading this blog (1st time today) I am so sorry to hear that you’ve been depressed since returning from Ireland. If you did bring something home from Ireland that affects your mental well being, I truly hope that you will do what is needed to keep yourself happy and healthy. I’m sure that you have family and friends close to you that can help you, but most of all listen to your gut. Some may say that you guys are brave or stupid for doing what you do; but, whatever you do, please just protect yourself. Not for the fans, but for yourself and those closest to you. I would like to also say thanks for all that you do! My girls and I call you the Ghost Bros, probably not the first time you’ve heard that one! Onward and Safe Travels.

oh Aaron, why would you want to interview “the devil” for HIS side? he will LIE! I think you have learned your lesson, but there is one person who lived on this earth that would probably be the greatest interview of all time… and the devil is quite afraid of HIM. may Jesus surround you and rebuke the evil that is following you now.

Aaron,
My husband and I watched the special last night. I’m still processing what went on. This is some heavy stuff. Please know that I send nothing but positive thoughts of protection and guidance for you and the crew. I said a prayer to protect you on your journey in life. You are my favorite hunter, and the reason I have enjoyed watching the show as much as I do! Please be careful.

Wow!!! I am such a pussy that I sage my house almost daily!!! You must have nerves of steel!!!! I am not one to watch paranormal shows because I am so afraid of accidentally inviting something in to my world. My sister (a paranormal FREAK) finally convinced me to watch Ghost Adventures and from the first time I watched I was hooked!!! (I’m still a paranormal pussy and won’t watch it at my house though!!!)

I hope you don’t carry the darkness with you because dude you are one amazing human and I want you to be able to live the most amazing life this time!!!!

Thanks for being you because you make the show!!!

This was the most gripping episode you guys have done. There is definitely dark things that lark in the shadows on the celtic island. I used to live in a haunted monestary called month. I’ve never experienced anything quiet like it. There is the many things that happened in the house to mention. What you guys do is amazing and I’m a true fan that’s watched you from the start. Hopefully one day you will return the England to hunt some more. I’d be honoured to meet you guys one day!!

So that’s why you’re looking so thin , you posted a pic the other day , I could see it in your eyes . Don’t let it get too deep , you’re right to get this sorted out in this lifetime , so you don’t have to take it into the next , but please be careful , you still have a life to lead this time around . I could send some distance Reiki healing , it can help calm emotions and helps lift depression , but you have to be willing to accept it . You are so brave doing this , much braver than me , I don’t even get out of bed in the morning without asking Archangel Michael for protection lol . Take care my friend , and let me know if you would like distance healing xx

As a child I grew up in a house that was “haunted” and it’s an experience that only other people that have lived threw it can truly understand. You being one who throws himself into the middle of where evil in this world lives. You and the ones who experience what you do, can understand. Having said that, it still doesn’t mean you should keep yourself away from others. Your blog I’m sure is a good outlet, but an impersonal one. You should consider finding someone that will listen. They may not be able to understand but if it’s the right person that will not matter. I have always found GA a real take on the investigation of the paranormal, other shows have lost that, but not your show. You have kept the true heart of investigating. All of you have grown and changed since the first episode, especially you, your changed from a scared cameraman, to a seasoned hunter is remarkable and an inspiration. Please try and take care of yourself.

Aaron, I feel bad u had to go through that but the wood protected u it did it’s job. U may want to go back to England’s Hellfire Caves full circle. My family comes from Ireland so I heard the stories Grandma told about the fairies and little people. I think u found something that I didn’t think was there evil. U must look at it as u made it and something very powerful touched your life and he could not have u. U were smarter at the time wearing something he could not get through. Now u can move on and find your way again showing everyone that our lives do go on and we mean something to our space and time. Thank U your fan phoebe

Hey Aaron cannot wait to watch the Halloween special and witness ur experiences. Hearing all the history told about these places in Ireland make me want to hop on the train n go down south to Ireland . ( only 100miles from me ) . You guys are so brave going in facing your fears and investigation all the creepy claims . No one can understand what u go though apart from u , ever happens for a reason . Stay positive and remember, what u do actually helps ppl and at the end of the day u learn more about the afterlife , locations , unexplained phenomenon and most importantly yourself .

P.s ….. Remember ur awesome n so funny

Blessed be on your life journey, Aaron. It isn’t easy to live in the world of the paranormal. If it was, everyone would be more open to these experiences. I truly believe we have lessons to learn with this life time, as those before. This is your purpose. To help others, like myself, to have courage and strength in a journey that many believe doesn’t exists or is looked down upon. Watching your show, and others alike, I feel a sense of community. Seeing your reactions to the events that unfolded befor you, I had to stop the show and walk away to catch my own breath! Flashbacks flooded my memory from my experiences as I saw the fear in your eyes. No one, unless they have felt that fear, can ever relate to what you went through. I know there isn’t much anyone can do or say to make you feel better, it’s something internal that we have to work through ourselves within our own spirituality, but I wanted to reach out and say a thank you for making me, and many others, feel less alone in our experiences. If anything, I pray this message gives you some semblance of comfort and strength to carry on with your journey.

Sincerely,

A Kindred Spirit

You got what you asked for…met the Beast. Unfortunately, these deals are made at a price. You are feeling the effects of having paid the price. The good news is that you can easily recover what you lost and get back in the right frame of mind/spirit. You will need to decide what actions will help. You need to cleanse yourself, then you need to counter balance the HUGE request you made of the underworld by paying it back somehow. I’m thinking that you know deep down what you can do. The price would have been part of the terms that you set out when you decided you wanted to meet “him”. Considering all that you have done to help spirits move on and to purge rogue demons, I suspect you aren’t as deep in debt as you might think you are. Take a vacation and soak in the ocean. The salt water washes it all away. 🙂 Peace.

This episode was really intense. What you guys do is truly amazing. Opening the eyes of skeptics is not an easy task, but the evidence that you acquire is amazing. However, as a Wiccan and a sensitive, my best advice is to not push your limits too far. And a personal cleansing is never a bad idea if the stress of it all ever becomes too much. Stay safe. Stay awesome. And blessed be.

I believe you were part of the hell fire club in a past go round as well,,, lots of people want to see darkness and see if there really is something there,, but once you see them there is no shutting the switch off, they see you from then on as well,, but lord stop doing rituals ! lol,, I mute them cause there’s always enough going on and keeping me awake with nightmares,, don’t need any of the dark shadow people in my place listening to darkness over your audios haha,,, has caused trouble before,,, creepy and crawly feelings I leave lights on for sometimes,, like tonight thanks to your incredible documentation,,,(my mother and I were once in a car wreck that rightfully we should both have died in,, since then lots of things seen and heard and experienced,,, crazy stuff,,) your show- incredible ,, stay safe and I cannot wait for the book to come out,, will be buying for sure… as well as your photography book,,, i am an ansel adams fan as well as an aaron Goodwin fan 🙂 it’s almost 2am here in new Brunswick Canada and I am not sleeping after that show hahaha,,, but that’s not unusual,,,seems the older I get the more I have to leave the light on to sleep *~* lol,,, be safe !
