Interview Starts 50:15 Kosta Makreas and Hollis Polk join us today to chat about ET contact, the peoples disclosure movement and the network of global people ET LetsTalk. We chat about their personal experiences and what led them to facilitate this network, and how part of this message is from the ET’s themselves. There are groups of people all over the world making conscious contact in various forms. The key is group coherence and we talk about how to build that and what are some of the things the group should practice to increase the chances of contact.    There are many groups of people having profound experiences and this should not just be ignored. They have created a map so we can find likeminded others and form groups to actually get outside and try. We chat about Graham’s multiple witness flashbulb sightings and we explore if some of these can be top secret black budget type phenomenon.    There are three retreats coming up this year with Hollis and Kosta, check out the links below for more details.   http://etletstalk.com/    http://888-4-hollis.com/psychic-reader-hollis/      In the intro Graham reads some listener / blogger UFO sightings, does the Profound UFO quote of the week and Darren has part deux of his Vaccine rant. Check out the chat room and all the other ways to support the show at the bottom of the notes.   See links directly below for stuff we chatted about during the show and the intro:   http://www.grimerica.ca/saturday-nights-alright-for-sightings/    http://smallbatch.audio/blog/    https://go.thetruthaboutvaccines.com/   Please Help support the show. Grimerica’s Honey DoBeDoBeDo List: !! – Grimerica is fully and solely listener supported.

This week’s shout out goes to that incorrigible sewer urchin, Nick The Rat ,whose subterranean antics never fail to delight.

There are 7 Easter eggs here, including the shout outs.

Also, I’m sorry I was so late! I was doing a photoshoot with Craig Owens of Bizarre LA , who explores and investigates haunted hotels, then recreates famous ghost stories through his photography. He’s also a historian, who works to dispel fake hauntings using actual documentation and records of a property. There’s a lot  of hotels out there who have invented ghosts as way to draw in tourists.

I’ll be posting a behind the scenes of all that on social media soon, until then, here’s proof! This picture is just a candid from sitting around on he set. Care to venture a guess as to who I was portraying?

And now, on to the comic… where I draw myself looking slightly more rugged…slightly.

Hello again Grimericans! Before you ask, no, this is not a post about the late, great, Kurt Cobain or the conspiracies surrounding his death. I’ve already done that post. With this being posted somewhat around the anniversary of his death that would be an understandable presumption. Nor does this post have to do with the spirit of a teen. I just thought it was a clever title. But now I’m regretting it with all of your questioning. But it’s too late now. Moving on; the topic of this post is something I have teased a few people with. Good ‘ol Darren even mentioned it on an episode of the Grimerica Show putting immense pressure on yours truly to get this sucker out. But like most things in my life, I’ll do them when I’m good and ready, regardless of how much an overbearing, tyrannical Canadian overlord pushes me. So with that, if you haven’t guessed what the subject material is yet, it’s is on paranormal smells.

 

So the idea for this post came to me after a video call from my favorite (and only) little sister. She was at her place, eating strawberry sherbet with a side of pickles, or whatever pregnant women do, when her nostrils where suddenly hit with the distinct smell of Copenhagen chew. This fleeting aroma triggered an emotional (she was pregnant at the time) and instinctive feeling that my late grandfather had taken time out of his busy schedule of cheating at cribbage in heaven, to come and pay her a visit. She immediately called her favorite brother to ask what he knew of such phantom smells. When he didn’t pick up, she called me. All the better for her as I am of the fortean mindset (See what I did there?). I told her what I knew, which was admittedly not as much as I would have liked and basically said that if she wanted to believe that it was our cribbage cheating grandfather checking up on her and the bun in her oven, then there was nothing wrong with that. I then suggested that I might do a blog post on the phenomena. Actually what I said was, “I’ll write my next blog post on the subject.” And here we are, four or five months later, two or three blog posts in between, and I’m semi being true to my word. It’s not that I didn’t want to jump into the topic, quite the contrary. I just had a heck of a time finding much information on the subject. In fact, after hanging up with my sister, I did a preliminary search of close to two hours on the interwebs resulting in just about bupkis. It’s not just that I couldn’t find a lot on the subject but that after finding the link or small paragraph on a page that covered it, it was not any new information. After coming to this realization, I then thought to myself that someone should write a comprehensive article or even a book on the phenomena. The next day, in a synchronicity that scored relatively low on the Canadian Third Party Ranking system, fortean researcher Joshua Cutchin popped up on my podcast feed, promoting his new book on paranormal smells on the show Mysterious Universe. I then decided that I wouldn’t write this post until I have read his book. “The Brimstone Deceit:  An In-Depth Examination of Supernatural Scents, Otherworldly Odors, and Monstrous Miasmas”.

 

The book is more than I could have asked for. Not only covering supernatural scents that involve the presumed spirits of the passed on, but as the title suggests, it also covered the otherworldly odors associated with UFO’s and their occupants and the monstrous miasmas involved with bipedal hominids. But for the purpose of this post, we will focus on the scents of spirits aspect. Something that became very clear to me was that I could not write a post as in depth as his book. Then I realized that I didn’t have to. That’s what the book is for. I will try to cover the more prominent points and then recommend the book if you are still interested in more information. Which will be likely. Something that popped out to me is the often association of tobacco smoke with male spirits. Now while what my sister smelled wasn’t smoke, it was still tobacco, which I find relevant. The range of smells attributed to the supernatural is wide and varying. Smells of flowers or perfume are often attributed to female spirits and the Blessed Virgin Mary which was said to smell “not spicy, not the smell of roses… but a very fine perfume.” And along the religious line, saints were said to exude pleasant fragrances. Heaven itself is said to have “an extraordinary perfume” which rises at all times.

 

It is important to note that a phantom smell is usually an element of a broader set of, what one site calls, “‘symptoms’ of a haunting”, while the sudden manifestation of a mysterious scent is usually taken to mean a presence from the great beyond. What you smell, as mentioned, can vary widely. Logically, any mysterious ‘bad’ smells, like rotten eggs, rancid meat and even feces are often associated with bad spirits or entities whilst pleasant aromas such as flowers, freshly baked goods and sweet perfumes are attributed to good spirits and entities. The odor of sulfur or brimstone traditionally has connotations of hell or demons. I will not go into the sulfur connection here and will once again direct you to The Brimstone Deceit for its conclusion. There are of course exceptions. As the author Joshua Cutchin notes, one of the few associations between floral scents and negative beings is the ‘kuntilanak’ (or ‘pontianak’) of Indonesia. This smelly spirit finds its roots in ancient Malay mythology which describes the kuntilanak as a horrifying female ghost. She is often said to be dressed entirely in white and can be linked to the lady in white mythos of which we have examined before, but for the purposes of this post, it is said that it “smells of flowers or strong perfume” and awaits its victims to drive by so that it can cover their eyes causing crashes so that it can feast on their blood. Charming… Likewise, the tobacco smoke that is often associated with male spirits has stories of not so nice entities. This makes sense since people that aren’t pleasant in life are probably not going to be in the afterlife regardless if they are smokers or not.

 

While tobacco smoke and floral perfumes seem to be the majority of the scents reported in the sensing of passed loved ones, other things associated with those who have passed often pop up in the reports as well. As with a specific perfume that was always worn by someone no longer with us, aftershave and cologne can be detected when an alleged spirit is present. Someone who loves to bake or cook can be associated with delicious smells from which there is no obvious source. In one forum I found the following description of what the poster believed to be his late father:

 

…and on two different occasions when I was really sad having a hard time I smelled beer, sweat, and marijuana, that was his smell…

 

So it’s obvious that “pleasant” is a relative term. It all depends on the observer and as with our other senses, odors can be interpreted differently between different people which can lead to a debate on what a smell is or if it’s even present. This fact alone can make it difficult when trying to investigate paranormal smells. While there are some instruments for detecting odors, sometimes called “electronic noses”, they are not cheap (over $2,200 USD) and aren’t always applicable for the smells in question. Gas and cigarette smoke are a couple scents that this particular device would aid in finding. Even if a smell was isolated to a particular room or location with no obvious source, it doesn’t really prove anything. But it is data. And data collection is an integral part of any investigation. Smells are interpreted in our brains so while there is possibility of misperception, although it isn’t very likely. If you would like to know more how the olfactory works, here is a link that can help you out. So to quote from Cutchin’s book one last time, actually quoting a quote from odor psychologist Trygg Engen saying on the sense of smell,

 

It’s actually better to think of this ability in terms of not forgetting [emphasis added] rather than remembering… While visual and auditory memories usually decrease with time, often exponentially in light of new experiences, odor memories remain intact.

 

Before I let you go, I would like to mention something called phantosmia, which is a medical condition that can be caused by a head injury, nasal or upper respiratory infection or nose polyps.  It can also be caused by, “temporal lobe seizures, inflamed sinuses, brain tumors and Parkinson’s disease” plus a variety of other things. It causes olfactory “hallucinations’ which can vary from individual but may be either foul, called cacosmia and is more common, often being described as “burned, foul, spoiled, or rotten”, or they can be pleasant. It can be sensed in one nostril or both and may be ever present or wavering. Indeed, there are many possible causes for this condition. One popular myth is that smelling burnt toast when there is none is a sign of a stroke or brain tumor, but according to Dr. Adam Simon, chief medical officer at PushDoctor.co.uk, this is simply not true.  Saying, “A stroke can affect any area of your brain, so it’s possible that your sense of smell can be affected, but there’s no particular smell that you need to worry about. You’re actually just as likely to smell nothing at all.” Either way, please consult your doctor if you experience the symptoms of phantosmia, so that your doctor can rule out any serious underlying disorders that may be causing the detected smell.

 

So I hope this was worth the wait. I again recommend reading Joshua Cutchin’s book even if you’re tired of hearing about supernatural scents, it’s worth it. How about you? Do you have any experiences with phantom smells with seemingly no source? I would love to hear about them as I’m sure the other readers would as well so leave them in the comments below if you are so inclined. Well that’s it for me Grimerica! Stay classy.

As the Island slept, I, the Moai, looked on and stood guard atop my Ahu platform from Midnight on. The Moon my sister imperceptibly traversed the deep shadowy pools of the Sky’s Nighttime adornment. Sister Moon’s glacial Spirit was heavy yet somehow aloft in the Void, arcing, arcing, glowing, softening. And somewhere the Almighty Sun continued marching its Milky Way from one grand Equinox to the next, the Moon its mirror.

 

One past Midnight, a somnambulist Ant named Synchro crawled down in a striation at my brow, which was chiseled into its final form by one of my Worshipers long ago. Synchro the Ant hoofed along my sturdy neck with a dirt payload on his back. O, how he built majestic anthills in his sleep, particulate by particulate, no grain of sand out of place. Night after Night I watched this industrious fellow as the Constellations cycled round and round. It was around the Time when he sleepily finished his most whimsical anthill yet — with labyrinthine tunnels that matched the Stars’ paths in some peculiar way — that I prophesied how Synchro the Ant would days later meet his demise in an avalanche of scree along the declivity to the Shore nearby. His Lilliputian body sunk into the Earth, recycled to be then of the same Matter his Slumberland anthills were made, his body the Cornerstone of the Anthill Temple of the Nth iteration. That’s Death; that’s dying. That’s simply Life heard from the mouth of the Moai, no beguiling.

 

Two after Midnight, the Moon hung high above, and just out of the corner of my eye a kinetic cousin to me Mr. Comet put on a light show as he streamed into the Big Dipper’s reservoir and fizzled out, as if winking at both me and the Moon.

 

Three on from Midnight, the Spirit Hour was in full bloom, plumes of Energy waltzing every which way, the Soundscape silent yet saturated with the Life Force ready always to arrive anew with a vigorous yawn or sonic boom — a hushed breath of flower’s perfume or seaward Tempest signaling doom. My sister the Moon was at ease in the Firmament, her location ephemeral, her brilliance enduring. Surrounded by her Star kinfolk, she knew no worry, was in no hurry to race to the Horizon.

 

Four past Midnight came in a timely fashion, with it the Birds began orchestrating their timeless symphony, warbling, cooing, tweeting, repeating, and feeding on the Worms who innocently had come up to drink on the Morning dew. That’s Death; that’s dying. That’s simply Life heard from the mouth of the Moai, no beguiling.

 

At Five on from Midnight, my sister the Moon was still alive but nearing the Horizon: her favorite hiding place. O, how she and the Almighty Sun do delight in crisscrossing and all the while painting Heaven’s canvas with all the Colors of the Light spectrum pallet. She embodies Light. See her in all her phases, waxing and waning, costume-changing in the confines of her boudoir in the mesmerizing Palace of the Nighttime Sky.

 

Six after Midnight happened swiftly, and with it my sister the Moon was gone, tucked behind the Horizon, lost from my ancient eyes for a Time. But nevertheless she would soon return sensuously so, all aglow, and Poseidon’s Tides would be the first to know. The Moon would again — from Midnight on — arc, arc brightly amidst the Dark.

 

 

In dedication to my sister J.C.O. Vaya con Dios, mi querida hermana.
