This article will be covering the wonderful paranormal talent of the ‘X Ray vision girl’ – Natasha Demkina.
Does this Russian girl really have the power to see inside people and spot their illnesses?
Welcome to the power of the Natasha Demkina X Ray eyes…
Natalya Nikolayevna Demkina was born in Saransk, western Russia, in 1987. When she was ten years old see went through an operation on her appendix that she claims gave her paranormal powers – the ability to look into a person’s body and locate various illnesses.
She says that she can actually spot colors inside people that make up pictures – she can then analyze these pictures to find out what is wrong with the individual.
When she first came out with these claims, the local doctors thought she was going slightly mad – in their book, this was impossible!
They decided to test Natasha by taking her to a local children’s hospital and introducing her to a few of the young patients.
She ended up correctly diagnosing several children correctly – one of which was seriously ill.
She also managed to correct a mis-diagnosis made by a doctor at the hospital on a female patient’s case.
This female had actually been told that she was suffering from a cancerous growth, but Natasha discovered that there was no cancer…only a harmless cyst.
This claim led to a second diagnosis…proving Natasha was correct.
Hitting The Headlines
In 2003, the wonderful story of the X Ray vision girl finally hit the big time – The Sun newspaper, in the UK, picked up on the Russian girl’s exploits.
Reporter Briony Warden brought Natasha over to the UK for the purposes of testing her for a future article in the newspaper.
Warden had been involved in a terrible road accident the year before he met Natasha – he decided that he would use his own body as a test subject to catch out the Russian girl.
Natasha had no problem in locating all of his past injuries, and where they had been on his body.
A British morning breakfast show, This Morning, decided to get Natasha on as a guest after the newspaper article was released. She then successfully diagnosed one of the show’s medical presenters – he ended up discovering that he had possible tumor in his intestines.
The Discovery Channelthen wanted a piece of the action – but many believe that their program, set up by Ray Hyman and Richard Wiseman, was deliberately put together to discredit Natasha’s claims.
On the show, she was put through a test of 7 people – she had to correctly diagnose 5 of them to pass.
She ended up diagnosing 4 of them correctly.
Natasha complained after the experience claiming that the show was rude to her and set up to make her look like some kind of failure. The show responded by releasing information regarding one of the test subjects she had examined.
Apparently he had a metal plate in his head – why did Natasha not pick up on this?
The Japanese Test
Natasha eventually agreed to go through another test with Professor Yoshio Machi of the Department of Electronics at Tokyo Denki University. This time she made sure she had a few rules put in place.
She passed this test with no problems at all – she even spotted a prosthetic knee and a new pregnancy in a woman.
Now it’s over to you – what are your feelings on Natasha Demkina and her X Ray Eyes?

In this article we will be covering the ghost moose of Maine – first reported back in the early 1900’s.
Is this giant white creature (nearly 10 feet in height) based on fact…or fiction?
Eyewitness Hunter Reports
This paranormal creature first came to light through hunter’s eyewitness accounts. They claimed it had a very strange glowing white hue to it’s coat and it’s antlers were completely over-sized (when compared to ‘normal’ moose breeds!).
Many of these reports also claim that the animal had a near supernatural sense of hearing and smell – whenever it was approached, no matter how quietly, it would suddenly disappear and materialize meters away.
A lot of these hunters actually set out to capture or kill this paranormal beast but were always thwarted when they took aim – the strange entity would simply disappear before they could pull the trigger!
One report that exists, involving hunters named Gilman Brown and Granville Gray, claims that both men managed to get the moose in their sights, from different vantage points…but the creature simply disappeared before they could shoot.
The First Sighting
The first sighting of the Ghost Moose of Maine was reported by a man named M.A. Cushing. He apparently came across this glowing animal in the Chairback Mountain area in the Katahdin region.
This first encounter seemed to be the catalyst for numerous other sightings, it was constantly spotted in the forests of the Chesuncook region up until about 1938.
The most famous of these ’38 sightings was from a witness listed simply as ‘Houston’. He claimed to be crossing a particularly tricky bog to get to a herd of moose.
Right next to this herd was a small gathering of larger bull moose…one of which glowed a pure brilliant white. He also claimed that this moose stood at least a meter taller than it’s surrounding counterparts.
Unfortunately, this Houston character was well known for liking a drink or two – so skeptics immediately jumped on the bandwagon and claimed he had mistaken a white horse for this moose.
Houston hit back at these claims pointing out that he was completely sober and he was an experienced hunter, besides, how could a white horse suddenly spout antlers?
The Ghost Moose
Was this spectral animal nothing more than an albino addition to the moose family or was it indeed a paranormal entity?
More recent reports have had this ‘white moose’ popping up in Canada – these incidents have led to a Canadian forest being nicknamed White Moose Forest.
Cryptozoology, paranormal entity or mistaken identity – what is the explanation behind this strange beast?

The coolest part of running a website in this genre, is the amount of private messages I get sent to me (not in a perverted way!).
No, most of these contact messages contain, or are directing me, to recent publications regarding proof of the paranormal
Real images of ghosts, videos, cryptozoology proof, UFO images – you name it – I get it!
Unfortunately, the workload of this site, and it’s brother site Real Unexplained Mysteries, makes it hard for me to cover a lot of this sent material…and it get’s lost in the mass of mail I receive on a daily basis!
So, today I decided to place a few of the more recent captured paranormal images up here, before they disappeared into the black hole of my email account…
Hope you enjoy them!
Toowoomba Ghost Chasers Facebook Image
I thought I’d start with this one because it has a particular eerie feeling about it. It was published to the Toowoomba Ghost Chasers Facebook page by an Aussie named Kim Davison (apparently from Queensland).
Research led them to believe that this was the image of a young girl that had drowned in the very same river over a century before the photo was taken.
What do you think…
Ghostly Figure By The Houses Of Parliament
This recent image was taken in front of the Houses of Parliament one evening and has been examined by numerous photographic experts…all of them have been left baffled by it’s results!
These same experts claimed that most so called ‘paranormal’ images can be explained away through photographic science…but this one could not.
A strange picture as the figure seems to be wearing some form of headphones – recently deceased perhaps?
What do you think…
The Norwegian Wedding Party
This is a strange one – very strange indeed!
It was a Norwegian wedding party that was held at an old farm, famous for being the former home of M. Munthe (a children’s book author).
It was apparently snapped on an iPhone camera and then posted to Reddit. If you look to the left you will see some of the professional photographer’s equipment – he didn’t manage to catch this image in his pictures.
The pro photographer claimed he had never come across a digital camera ‘glitch’ like this before and really couldn’t explain it.
Nobody at the party that day turned up wearing black…
Three Legs & Three Arms
I actually came across this image myself when I was scanning the Irish Mirror for any new paranormal reports.
An extremely creepy effect that would probably take weeks to pull off in a Photoshop project…if it could be pulled off at all?
Laura Clarke, from Belfast, shared the image of her holding three-year-old Theo and smiling to the camera during a family ‘day of the dead’ party to honor their loved ones who had passed.
This image was backed up by a series of creepy incidents that had been happening to the family – Laura believes that it could be her deceased father, Terry, trying to show his presence.
What do you think…
Do YOU Have Any Real Images of Ghosts?
Are you holding onto an image you think we would find interesting?
Would you like us to publish it, or maybe write an article about it on this site?
Perhaps it is normal to encounter things in life that may weird us out, frighten or scare us, or just outright make us scream at the top of our lungs. Even in this time and age when everything is easily accessible through the Internet, there are just things that Science finds difficult to explain.
Imagine catching yourself alone in your own house and for some reason a drawer opens up and the air is still and you are far away from it.
Who do you call?
For sure, you would have thought of Ghostbusters, but unfortunately, they are not real. But it’s a good thing that paranormal psychics are here to help you answer stranger questions from strange occurrences in your life brought about by paranormal activities.
But first, let us talk about what is the paranormal, because having had a paranormal experience does not necessarily mean you are dealing with ghosts of the dead or spirits from a different world.
These can very well be energies around you which mean you no harm.
Energies are able to communicate and, more often than not, only need help to know what happened to them so they can finally get a closure and move on.
We have listed some of the surefire ways on how you can deal with paranormal activities. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have already been equipped and armed with sufficient knowledge on what to do if you experience one in the future.
Learning Everything You Can About Paranormal
Not everyone is brave enough to do a research about the paranormal, especially at night. That is why we recommend that you do it out in public with the sun up where light is abundant.
We feel secure and safe in places where it is bright. When doing your research, steer clear of websites that have ominous background music or those that have really dark layout and color scheme.
These elements of the website should not distract you from learning what you want to learn. Watch out for websites that delve deep in the subject matter without using words that are unfamiliar to most humans.
You should be able to learn where most paranormal activities, sightings, and manifestations usually occur so you can prepare yourself should you encounter one in the future.
Being Skeptical and Logical at The Same Time Goes a Long Way
There will come a time when your brain will play tricks on you. It will make you see, feel, and hear—and ultimately make you believe—that you are indeed experience an out of this world activity. This happens mostly when we are scared.
Our minds conjure images that are really not there in the first place. What you can do is compose yourself and do not cause a scene, especially if you are in a public space.
Close your eyes and try to think well if there is a logical explanation of what happened. Those scary and weird noises on the second floor may just as well be mice, the wind, or pipes. It could be the television.
If you panic, you will likely cause a disturbance; worse, you might end up embarrassing yourself. Do not discount the fact that your friends may be playing a game with you, in other term, pranking you for fun.
This is not a good thing to do to someone as it may cause trauma and other permanent fear.
Asking For Professional Help
Some spirits, energies, or ghosts would bother you to no end, and it is normal that you feel scared and helpless. When this time comes and you are no longer able to sleep well at night because of this, asking for help from a paranormal psychic is not something that you should be ashamed of.
These experts will know what to do with them and are able to provide you with necessary steps on what you can do to stop these from happening.
They will make sure that these spirits—evil or otherwise—are expelled from your property so you can start getting a good night’s sleep again. Amulets and charms are usually given by paranormal psychics to keep you safe from them, but methods are varying.
These professionals are trained to deal with the paranormal and their years of extensive research and psychic will speak for themselves. You may go online and check for their reputation so you can feel better.
Being Around Friends Also Helps
While professionals tend to your house and dispel the energies bugging you there, you can be with friends for the moment. There is strength in number, or so a popular saying goes.
Be with your close friends who would never take advantage of your situation and vulnerability. You may start talking about happy memories from the past to keep you distracted from the situation.
Whether they are your family, your close friends, your roommate, be with the people you trust the most who know how to calm you down in a very stressful situation; people who can easily lighten up the mood.
You can choose to put on a really funny movie and start laughing to your heart’s desire. Eat your favorite comfort food. You can also choose to go to the nearest church, if you are religious, and start praying and giving thanks for the good things you have received so far and ask for perpetual guidance and safety from the evil elements of this world.
There are worlds that coexists with us, and it is important to recognize that. Some entities, although invisible to the naked eye, are following us wherever we go as they are trying to communicate with us.
We hope that this article helped you enough on how you can react if you experience a paranormal activity. If you wish to share more tips, you can leave a comment down below.
What are we looking at when we see a ghost? We often ask this question in regard to the spiritual nature of the manifestation before us.
What heavenly apparition or lost soul is making itself known to us?
The other side of this question is much more scientific, much more physical.
What material and physical matter are we looking at that is causing these shapes and movement?
Put more simply, what are ghosts made of?
There are many theories on the physical matter of ghosts, but there is some weight behind the idea of plasma…
There has been plenty of debate on the topic of ghosts and the scientific reasons for their activity. Then there are the tales of popular culture that get thrown into the mix.
There is a big difference between the green, slimy masses that can be physically handled by Ghostbusters and cartoon characters and the physical entities that we come across in real life.
The problem is that nobody is quite sure what they really are made of.
One of the words that commonly comes up is plasma. This is an important term because it is probably largely responsible for the lore of movies, yet is still the most probable suggestion.
It all comes down to what our interpretation of plasma is. When we think of plasma we think of blood plasma and ectoplasm; plasma is where ectoplasm came from.
In the movies, this meant a thick substance produced by ghosts in order to interact with the real world. This was a neat trick for visual storytelling, but this is not the reality of ghost encounters.
The other definition of plasma is a fourth state of matter that is neither a solid, liquid or gas. It is essentially an ionized gas, unlike the gases we are familiar with, with highly energized electrons that have separated from their nuclei.
We see this phenomenon when looking at neon lights and it is believed that this form of matter is what creates the energized glowing entities that we see as ghosts.
Our ongoing lack of understanding could simply be down to the fact that this particular form of plasma is separate from that of neon gas.
There could be physical and chemical interactions taking place within these spectral projections that are yet to be fully understood.
Energy and electricity are the key here, which is what makes this subject so complex…
Plasma, of one kind or another, seems like the most logical solution here because of that idea of a highly energized being.
We know for certain that energy is a major factor in the appearance and characteristics of ghosts.
The glowing, energy-emitting entities that we see are proof that energy is at work in some form. The best way of detecting the presence of ghosts is through an EMF meter.
Their readings and electrical charges are so strong that they are easily detected and can disrupt electrical equipment. This works with this idea of plasma because of that highly-energized, ionized gas.
Plasma has the ability to conduct electricity, generate electromagnetic fields and emit light.
Ghosts and other related manifestations are known to do the same. There is a glow to them.
It was once theorized that ghosts were simply light sources of photon element, but this did not explain the ability to pass through solid objects.
In order to do this, these ghosts had to be made of something smaller than an atom. There was also the theory of the “ghost particle” that is the neutrino – something small enough to meet this criteria.
The problem here was that neutrinos don’t carry an electrical charge.
So What Are Ghosts Made of?
The one thing that researchers can be sure about is that ghosts are made up of some form of strong energy source.
It now seems that theories about photon light were a long way off the mark.
At the time, they were the most logical explanation for light generation in an unknown entity, but it seems that we were not looking far enough.
The poorly-understood world of plasma surely holds the key to finally answering the question of what ghosts are really made of.
Further research into the properties of plasma and the potential for different forms could help us to sole this puzzle.
How much do you know about the supernatural and paranormal activities?
The first step towards ever getting anywhere with the truth behind many mysteries is definitely understanding the paranormal components.
What makes up the weird and the unexplained of human society?
We can begin by defining any paranormal or supernatural phenomena as a mystical manifestation or event that human beings cannot conclusively explain using all our advanced scientific knowledge and natural elements.
These include occurrences like cryptids, superhuman abilities like telekinesis and of course, ghosts and aliens.
The Paranormal Breakdown: A Foundation to the Truth
Care to find out the categories of weird we have in the world…?
It’s the only sensible way to get to the ultimate truth right?
The supernatural world has general reports of all the following mysterious phenomena…
1) Legends and Mythologies
Here you will find well-known fairy-tale creatures the likes of deities (Zeus, Ra, Apollo…), werewolves, mermaids, and demigods like Hercules, blood suckers like Dracula, the bogeyman and even trolls or gargoyles.
All the characters above were used in different societies and cultures across the world as part of their unique folklore to pass teachings and warnings and also try to explain things they could not yet begin to comprehend.
These supernatural characters were developed and preserved over centuries of passed on oral narrations from generations to generations.
2) Demons and Possessions
This falls under a branch of theology known as demonology; which is basically a study into the belief of demons and evil spirits.
Many confuse this with the study of cults but it’s far from it. However, elements of demons and their references can be found throughout all major religions and forms of belief.
Demons can either be benevolent or malevolent but many people tend to associate the name “demon” with the latter. This is because are mostly perceived as wicked and vindictive.
Controversial demonologists like Lorraine Warren have claimed to be able to talk to ghosts and demons.
Famous texts such as the Grimoire of Pope Honorius gave most of the names of demons we know of today as well as their individual functions.
Some of these earlier religious inclined texts have met strong resistance and brushed aside as diabolical and baseless facts.
Ghost hunting groups and individuals on the other hand have stuck to the idea that demons are just pissed off ghosts that decide to act evil…
How many demons can you name in addition to Nybbas, Seraphim, Abaddon, Pharzuph, Gaap, Abdiel, Krampus, or the king of Hell’s comedy, Kobal?
Each demon is believed to control a particular element and have different influences in the material world.
The common belief of course being that these demons are merely the devil’s minions. Some even believe that demons can possess human beings or animals and influence their actions and thoughts.
3) Aliens and UFOs
The question still lingers as to whether earth has had contact with extraterrestrial beings or not.
The existence of life outside our atmosphere has always fascinated us, and efforts are still underway to make the first contact despite there being numerous claims of several UFO sightings and alien contact(s).
Although all these allegations about interactions with beings from other planets and possibly distant galaxies have been questionable, there have been very interesting conspiracies tied to governments such as the New Mexico Roswell UFO crash.
Other unproven stories have described vivid alien abductions that have left us torn between what to believe and not to believe about the alien/UFO controversy.
4) The Metaphysical Element
This falls under a branch of science known as pseudoscience. These are claims and concepts without any scientific legitimacy and which are better referred to as alternative or fringe science.
Some of the phenomena categorized as metaphysical include:
* Telepathy: Communication using brain waves or transmitting thoughts without verbal words.
* Chakras: Any of the 7 spiritual power points in a human being. They are scattered in different locations between the top of the head and somewhere near your mid-section around the pelvis area.
* ESP (6th sense) and Clairvoyance: This is basically the ability to perceive or experience events outside the scope covered by our natural 5 senses.
* Auras: This is the belief that a human being is surrounded by a colorful array of energy fields every now and then. Kind of like the magnetic fields depicted on a magnet.
* Telekinesis: This is where objects can be moved without any physical interference. It is believed the mind has the ability to summon this kind of power in some super-humans or supernatural beings.
* Reincarnation: This is the rebirth of a soul into another body…not necessarily a human body.
* Astrology: This is basically a study into the influences or effects that astral bodies such as planets have on the experiences of human beings. Thus the development of the Zodiac signs, their meanings, and how each is related to certain individuals in terms of influencing life events.
5) The Study of Cryptids or Cryptozoology
This side of the paranormal looks at animals not yet categorized in science; which of course goes to tell you that their existence at any point in the earth’s history is highly contentious.
These are studies about Bigfoot, Pegasus, the Loch Ness monster, Unicorns, Dragons, the goat sucking Chupacabra and many more.
6) Ghosts: Living Spirits of the Dead
Okay, truth be told…this is arguably the beginning of the journey into the paranormal. Stories of souls or human spirits from beyond the light visiting the land of the living go back as far back as death itself!
The fascination with death has driven man to great heights and sometimes to very, very low depths in search of the elusive answer…What happens to a person after death?
Is it all gone?
Is the soul detached from the body and promoted to a higher realm?
And what about these claims of people who died and came back? What did they really see on the other side?
The only way to find out the true answer to this quagmire is simple but a bitter pill to swallow because nobody wants to die…
But wait…it gets even more interesting…parapsychology seems to hold a different theory about ghosts.
Studies in this field tend to bend heavily towards the possibility of communicating with ghosts through mediums.
The twist here is that the theory also suggests that living humans disembodied through astral project can very easily appear to other people as ghosts.
Hauntings: Lingering Paranormal Energies
These paranormal activities are usually connected to certain places. Contrary to what you might have believed, hauntings don’t necessarily have to be connected to ghosts according to TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society)…!
Here’s a breakdown of the kinds of hauntings you can encounter in the paranormal world…
#1 Intelligent Ghost Activity: This is basically where ghosts or unseen entities can be experienced as they struggle to make contact with the land of the living. Think messages written on a misty mirror…
#2 Poltergeist Hauntings: These are violent events such as banging doors or flying objects; total chaos and mayhem from unseen energies.
Poltergeist energies are also believed to attach themselves to individuals and cause unusual drama everywhere these people go.
More contradictory views seem to believe different about the source of poltergeists.
Parapsychologist view of the poltergeist suggest that this is the work of an oblivious living human being who in some unknown way manages to summon up and manifest some sort of psychokinetic energy.
But, why the violence and the terrifying events?
#3 Residual Haunting: This is more like “déjà vu haunting”…okay, think living through an episode of the TV series Day Break…the same event occurring over and over again at certain intervals.
Parting Shot: Searching for the Truth
The truth can only be established when we move from the known to the unknown…Working with the few paranormal facts we have brings us closer to understanding the paranormal and what goes on in realms we can’t see or we can scarcely fathom.
Hope this small guide helps you move closer to your own truth… keep the faith and have fun sharing experiences from the paranormal or supernatural world.
