About Shawn H. Smith
"Here lies the womb of my life path."
Through life’s experiences we gain more insights than ever possible sitting in a classroom. In order for me to fully appreciate and understand the importance of speech reversals, I believe I've had to experience and explore many aspects of the paranormal and mystical.
In the fall of 2000 my wife Ellen and our two children, Christopher and Lindsay, went on a ghost walk. While waiting for the tour to begin I walked about the office of the tour operator, looking at the objects on display. One item in particular caught my attention. It was a picture taken at night and included a chain link fence which was just outside of a cemetery. Within the picture was also wispy fog like substance. When I inquired about it, the tour operator said it was a picture taken by someone on one of her previous ghost walks. She said the wispy fog was spirit energy, or a ghost. She said she had it verified by The International Ghost Hunters Society (IGHS). I made a mental note to remember the name in order to look it up on the web. There began my continuing journey into the mysterious world of spirit.
I visited IGHS’ website, owned by David and Sharon Oester, and was amazed that if spirits/ghosts can be photographed, that obviously means they actually exist (so much for your parents telling you ghosts aren’t real). What was even more amazing was to learn through IGHS, they can be recorded on audio too, which is known as Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP). David Oester discovered that if you reverse an EVP there can often be heard additional information from the spirit. Needing validation for myself, my family and I began doing investigations documenting the “between life”. We’ve investigated cemeteries, historical sites, our home and those of others getting great results.
I felt drawn to reading as much as I could on the subject of the paranormal, needing scientific explanations of it all. I’ve read dozens books by mediums, scientist’s studies on mediums, psychiatrists using hypnotherapy with past life regressions, and a multitude of other books from the “New Age” section of the book stores. I’ve attended workshops and seminars, and have searched the internet for hours on end.
In the summer of 2003 I came upon David Oates' website on Reverse Speech. After spending three years researching the afterlife and listening for reversal from spirits, I was blown away to learn when humans speak we also have more to say in reverse. Before I could finish reading the second paragraph explaining Reverse Speech, I had to stop and re-listen to a recording from a cemetery investigation that Ellen, Christopher and myself had conducted just days before. In the recording my son read the name off of a headstone commenting that it was a very interesting name, three spirits responded and one male said “Thank you”. When I reversed my son talking he said “The man with dark hair is the name of”. Clearly he was aware of those in spirit around him, so much so Christopher described what he looked like. Presumably it was the name of the male spirit that said “Thank You”.
I was on the telephone one morning in the spring of 2005 telling of a paranormal event that occurred earlier that morning in our house. Knowing that those in spirit will sometimes make comments when we talk, I had a recorder going as I talked on the phone. In the recording a female spirit can be heard saying “It’s Linda.” Reverse she says “My husband’s here”. He then says “Hi”. When I reversed what I had said just prior to that I asked “Who’s here talking”?
Perhaps unconsciously I could hear them talking. With that recording I discovered that spirits can understand our Reverse Speech, and we communicate with them in speech reversals. I now know that we are aware of spirits around us to a degree we can describe their appearance and we converse with them with our Reverse Speech.
Through my research, using reverse speech as an investigative tool, I have discovered that we are aware of those in spirit around us, and with such detail we can even describe what they look like. I also discovered that we communicate with those in spirit through our reverse speech, and they understand our speech reversals. A note to those doing paranormal research, I would recommend looking for reverse speech from investigators just prior to and after a ghost/spirit being recorded. The information revealed could be enlightening to the overall investigation.
The evidence of the existence of spirits and humans communicating in a hidden language our unconscious receives perfectly has kept mounting;
1.) Spirits were once part of a human body.
2.) The body dies the soul continues on.
3.) Spirit’s converse with spirits using Reverse Speech.
4.) Human’s converse with humans using Reverse Speech.
5.) Human’s and spirits converse with each other.
Reversals in humans often appear to be in the third person. “I” would be referencing one’s spirit, “he/she” would be the spirit referencing the physical person, and “we” would be the both combined. For the majority of us, it is not the first time our spirits have been around in the physical. One’s spirit is eternal and melds with each new body and brain prior to birth, which combined together work in harmony for the life of that body. This vehicle gives one’s spirit the experiences it requires to advance. Visit Dr. Michael Newton’ website; The Newton Institute: For Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy. With more than 40 years of research, he is considered a pioneer in uncovering the mysteries about life after death through the use of Spiritual Regression.
I have done enough research and have had enough experiences at this time, to conclude that speech reversals in humans is our spirit talking. If we listen to our soul we can gain insights and wisdom from its experiences over many lives, making the journey of our bodies and souls a partnership that will expand the life experiences of both beyond our wildest dreams.
