Into The Light Paranormal began as a paranormal investigating group where founders Kitty Janusz and Kimberly Rinaldi use their skills as psychic mediums to connect and communicate with the other side. Their experiences and the evidence collected suggest the truth is often stranger than fiction.

"We're not asking you to believe, we only ask that for the next hour you listen and decide for yourself what is reality..." Kitty Janusz

"When Kitty invited me to go on my first paranormal investigation my response was something along the lines of - No way, not happening!" Kimberly Rinaldi

"We strive to bring respect, understanding and healing to haunted locations. We want to help those who may not have a voice." Kitty

"I try to keep words like unbelievable out of my vocabulary. Just because I haven't experienced something doesn't mean it isn't real." Kimberly

Join us as Kitty, Kimberly and their guests have conversations about what lies beyond the veil, outside of the ordinary, into the realms of miracle, mystery and magic, as they bring the Paranormal Into the Light... (cue the scary music).

 

 

 

Built on the Gallows! The Whaley House, One of America's Most Haunted Locations

         

Thomas Whaley came to California during the Gold Rush. He opened his first general store in the San Fransisco area, selling hardware, tools, and firearms. After arson destroyed his buildings in 1851, Thomas Whaley relocated to Old Town, San Diego.

He purchased a lot on the corner of San Diego Ave and Harney Street in September of 1855 and built a single- story grainery the following year. In 1856, Whaley began construction of an adjacent two-story Greek Revival style brick home of his own design. Thomas Whaley proclaimed, "My new house, when completed, will be the handsomest, most comfortable, and the most convenient place in town or within 150 miles of here," Upon completion in 1857, the home was acclaimed as the "finest new brick block in Southern California" by the San Diego Herald, and cost the impressive sum of 10,000.

Whaley partnered with the Deputy County Clerk and the Chief of Police to expand the building into one of San Diego's earliest courthouses. Along with a general store, the building even boasted a commercial theater.

But why has this grand home and center of commerce become such a ripe source for hauntings? 

Did I menton that the land was a bit of a bargain because it was used as the site of the public gallows? Yes, Thomas Whaley himself witnessed James. (aka "Yankee Jim" ) Santiago hanged off the back of a wagon off the very site. Legend says Yankee Jim's rope was just a lttle too long and Jim slowly strangled with his boots scraping the ground. Many a man swung where the Whaley House now sits.

Childhood deaths, a broken hearted daughter's suicide, and years of public hanging are entwined with the story of the Whaley house. 

If you come to San Diego to visit the Whaley house, make sure you visit the graveyard just down the street. Yes, Yankee Jim is buried there. And take a look down while you're walking. You'll notice brass markers on the sidewalk. They say, "grave marker." Old Town San Diego has a lot of secrets...

Join me as I talk to Whaley historian Jokie Tolentino as we "dig up" the secrets of San Diego's haunted Whaley House Museum!

Winchester Mystery House. Eccentric Widow or is it Filled with Freemason Iconography?

        

The iconic Winchester Mystery House. We've heard the story of an eccentric widow who built a rambling nonsense house to "confuse" the spirits of those killed by the Winchester Rifle. The Winchester House is one of the most recognized estates in the United States. It has over 160 rooms, staircases that lead up to nowhere, and doors that open to solid walls. Was all this the musings of a crazy woman or are we missing the hidden meanings of the house's anomalic architecture?

Who was Sarah Winchester? Most of us know only one side of the story. Dubbed "The Belle of New Haven," Sarah Pardee Winchester was a beautiful woman with a brilliant mind and an impressive education for a female of her time. She was fluent in Latin, French, Spanish, and Italian. Sarah had an extensive knowledge of Homer and Shakespeare and was an accomplished musician.

Young Sarah was raised in a liberal  environment that embraced progressive Freemason-Rosicrucian theology. She attended Yale University's female scholastic institution, the "Young Ladies Collegiate Institute." Yale has strong ties to Masonic-Rosacrucian ritual and symbolism and is home for the secretive club, of the Skull and Bones Society.

Given her rote knowledge of Shakespeare, numerology, Freemason iconography and an eye for architecture, it's time we take a fresh look at the Winchester Mystery House.

The house is bursting with cryptic and anomalous features throughout. The prime numbers 7, 11, and 13 are prominant throughout the estate. Be it 13 windows in a room, 11 rails in a railing, or the number of planks in a floor, these numbers were of particular importance to Sarah Winchester. 

Many of the rambling staircases and labryinths contain sacred geometry and may hold pieces to a much larger puzzle.

Was Sarah Winchester wanting vistors to participate in her puzzle to stretch our ideals? Is the house simply filled with anomalies and whimsy and placed randomly, or is this house more like a backdrop from The Divinci Code?

Perhaps she is aluding to the Freemason's philosophical ideal as noted in Proverbs: 25

"It is the Glory of God to conceal a thing. It is the Glory of Kings to find a thing."

Let us take a look at Winchester Mystery House with fresh eyes as I chat with historian Janan Boehme

Discussing a Different Perspective of Life and Death with Neurosurgeon Dr. Edison McDaniels

   

We as paranormal investigators introduce ourselves and converse with people who, are, well, dead. We may know only bits of a person's life if we are lucky enough to connect with a particular spirit attached to a location. We may know a name, some history, and perhaps a few of the tragic events that may have caused a spirit to be at unreast and haunt a location. We rarely had the opportunity to get to know that person when they were alive. 

But what about someone who deals in Life and Death every day? Wouldn't a person who has an intimate relationship with making life saving decisions indeed have a unique perspective on Life and Death?

Edison McDaniels is a writer and novelist living in the American South. He specializes in historic fiction, surgical thrillers, and stories of the supernatural. His writing tends to involve ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances and is often informed by medicine and his knowledge of surgery. His stories showcase historical fiction and the supernatural, especially ghosts. He received honorable mention in The Seventeenth Edition of the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror (2003), and has been published in Paradox Magazine, The Summerset Review (available online), The Armchair Aesthete, On The Premises Magazine, EverydayFiction.com, and others. Many of his short stories can be found online.


      

He is also a graduate of Stanford University and is a neurosurgeon. He is board certified in the practice of adult and pediatric neurosurgery, with over 7,000 operations to his credit.

His tales, many available on Kindle, include the novels The Touched (a supernatural medical thriller), and Not One Among Them Whole (a steep descent into the madness of battlefield surgery at Gettysburg), and the suspense novellas Juicing Out, Blade Man, An Endless Array of Broken Men, The Crucible, and The Bottom of the Fifth. Also available is a nonfiction work, Saving King, on the 64 minute struggle to save the Rev. Dr.’s life.

What insight to the veil between Life and Death will Dr. McDaniels share with us?

Stories of Aliens, Ancient Visitors and are stories in the Bible about Aliens?

 

We look into the night sky and see an endless sea of stars. Are we alone in this vast Universe? How did we get on this little blue rock called Earth? If we came from somewhere else, does that make us aliens ourselves?

Is the One True God really an ET?

We Chat with Nick Groff & Katrina Weidman. What it's Like to Spend 72 Hours in a Haunted Location?

     

   

We are joined once again by two of my favorite guests, Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman of Paranormal Lockdown. Nick and Katrina push their bodies and their investigative skills to the limit by setting up residence and remaining virtually nonstop for 72 hours in some of the world's most haunted locations!

Nick and Katrina put themselves at risk to gather groundbreaking evidence of the paranormal. By remaining in one place over several days, Nick and Katrina can really get a "feel" for a place and can document the ebb and flow of a haunting.

Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman arrive in Middleboro, Mass., to investigate a colonial estate’s tragic history. Built in 1769, layers of anguish built up at the Oliver Estate over decades. When the township opened the home to the public this year for the first time in its 250-year history, early visitors left terrified by chilling sounds and ghostly apparitions. Over the course of their 72-hour investigation, Nick and Katrina capture evidence of child spirits and unexplained black orbs. But in their attempts to put the souls to rest, Nick and Katrina learn the haunting isn’t limited to the house.

Kitty will have Nick and Katrina share their latest evidence, their newest equipment, and maybe a sneak peek into what lays in store for Season 2 of Paranormal Lockdown!

Here's what's in store for Friday's Jan 6 episode 

ABOUT THIS WEEK'S EPISODE: Friday, January 6 at 9/8c

St. Ignatius Hospital in the center of Colfax, Wash., has been abandoned since 2003, but workers and passersby claim it is hardly uninhabited. Lurking shadows and disembodied shrieks reported echoing through the halls have increased of late and shaken the small wheat farming community, prompting the town director to reach out for help. Now, world-renowned paranormal researchers Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman check in to the hospital for 72 hours straight in hope of diagnosing the source and nature of the haunting. They'll immerse themselves among the countless souls that passed away within the 120-year-old building. However, as darkness falls over Colfax, they soon discover they are not the only ones working the night shift at St. Ignatius Hospital.
