Paranormal precipitation in A minor
By Laurie Champion from the files of Pinellas/Pasco/ Paranormal
About two months back I got an email from a Music teacher, about a strange phenomenon he was experiencing. His name is Alex Ceruzzi. Down the line we spoke on the phone. He was a very educated, rational, well spoken and very nice man with a very strange problem. He teaches piano and other instrument lessons in his studio, located in his home. He told me that whenever he does a lesson with one particular student, as he sits in his chair while she plays the piano, some strange liquid falls on him. I went on to ask a lot of questions which he answered as best he could. What I found peculiar is that while water drops out of nowhere, is one of the most common spirit related phenomenon, is usually just water, and often cool water, His case was different as this was not just water. The substance falling on him is clear, viscous, and sticky. He was not really upset by this event just curious and sort of confused about this strange happening.
We kept in touch and tried together to solve this strange, wet mystery. It began as just a few drops and eventually after several lessons escalated to large splashes of this substance, always landing on Alex, not ever on the student. He even tried having his wife come in and play the piano, and nothing happened. It was becoming obvious that since this only happened when this girl was there for her lesson, and she played the piano so it had to be connected to her and not to Alex or his wife. The student it seems was totally unaware of this and when he finally showed it to her, he asked if this ever happened to her. She seemed unphased by it and said that that no, it never happened to her or to anyone at her home. Somehow I would have expected a teenager?s reaction to witnessing this phenomenon which she did time and time again to be at least a bit taken back by it or at least curious. Still oddly enough she never even seemed even interested in this mystery.
Alex sent me a photo of his music room and I saw the chair where he usually sits during lessons. Behind him, covering the entire wall is a giant mirror with glass shelves and lots of framed photos, also with glass panes over them. For me this is a very telling detail. Now Alex runs a humidifier in his music room for the best climate for the piano, which could figure in also. You see, a piano will only stay in tune so long as the relative humidity level in the air remains constant. Now being as glass is an amplifier for light and spirit energy as well, this wall of glass and mirror behind him does contribute to the energy build up there. We can rule out condensation coming from the glass because it is behind him not over his head and the glass is there are no water droplets forming on the glass. Alex also examined the ceiling in the very beginning to insure there was no leak from above, such as a roof or pipe leak of any kind. The ceiling was pristine and dry.
I had him ask this student some other questions as time went by and he learned that she did have some relatives in spirit. She also had a grandmother living out of the country that was very ill and close to death, in fact some time later this student went to visit this grandmother who did pass on. I did ponder, before the grandmother passed, wondering if she was visiting her granddaughter in spirit by astral travel in her sleep time as sometimes very ill people, near to death do. Sometimes dying folks have one foot in each world for a little while, before their transition. They may want to see their relative that they have not seen in years before they die and will often do this sometimes, even subconsciously. I thought maybe just maybe, a person still living, but astral traveling may produce a similar fluid as a ghost, but sticky and thick rather than just water. Perhaps the tie to a still living, physical body may account for the sticky substance, rather than just water, as a ghost can produce? I had heard of a supposed sticky substance that exists in the astral realm that more or less holds everything together or binds the physical to the ethereal body before. Although every instance of this kind of astral travel that I know of, has not been accompanied by this or any other fluid.
Since the phenomenon kept on after the Grandmother?s passing we know it was not necessarily her, if our astral traveling theory was right. Still there is always the possibility of an answer we are not thinking about. Perhaps another living person could be astral tripping to this place? This would be very hard to do it consistently as astral travel is not reliable or even possible every time one attempts it. It is a very hard thing to do at will. Evidence left by astral travel is not something that has had a lot of study based around it. What if another life form that we know nothing about was attracted by this music, and broke through some barrier between the worlds to be present and enjoy music. But why only when this one girl played? There is so much in heaven and earth we do not know or understand.
Years back a Canadian couple reported a similar experience at an online forum, with a few spots of this same kind or a similar fluid showing up on the bed here and there. It was always on his side of the bed. Things really got out of hand when the man awakened to find his entire side of the bed from his waist down next to where he lay, soaked in this sticky, viscous odorless fluid. The top covers and the man?s pajama bottoms were dry oddly enough and there was no fluid anywhere else but on the under sheet near where he lay. For those thinking it, no he did not wet the bed. They examined the ceiling again for a leak and nothing was ever found. Eventually the activity stopped for a year and then began again, only to come to a halt again. This was the only case I could find where anything similar involving this sticky liquid had taken place.
In the old days you heard tell of ectoplasm, this gauzy white substance that supposed mediums produced from their orifices when spirits took over their bodies. This was later proved to be mostly fraudulent parlor tricks on the part of these faker mediums, during sťances. But what of all the photos and video showing a white mist like substance floating into the photo frame in haunted locations? Perhaps there was really something to the whole ectoplasm theory. Is this fluid a kind of liquid ectoplasm? I have no clue. I know how the water drops happen by condensation of humidity in the air when a spirit stays in a certain spot for a time sucking out all the energy and heat along with it, causing the humidity to condensate and fall like rain drops. This sticky substance though has me stumped. I imagine it is happening in a similar fashion.
Since in Alex?s case the substance always falls on him and never the student, I can only assume this spirits hangs out directly above him. Maybe this is because the spirit does not want to scare or disturb her young relative? There is also the possibility that this is some kind of a very protective spirit, standing guard over this young girl, maybe trying to let Alex know he or she is watching him. This young lady comes from another culture and other cultures have their beliefs and their own way of doing things. One time, as soon as Alex started to question the student he was bombarded with splashes of the fluid. It was as if someone did not like his questioning the student.
This is one of the strangest things and I would love to get to the bottom of it but I live too far away to go and investigate it and as long as the spirit is not haunting Alex and his wife when the girl goes home, it truly is better to leave well enough alone. Anyone dabbling there could call in other spirits or anger this one in their attempts to document anything for their own agenda.
I would love to hear from others who have had this kind of experience. Please write to me at [email protected]. This is until we figure it out, just another mystery of the paranormal world, perhaps letting us know that there is indeed an unseen world where spirits still live on after this life.
