Ryan Bueller
So sad to see Ryan Buell of Parnormal State arrested on fraud charges. The paranormal field is one I had worked with for awhile and I witnessed many genuine phenomena in person and enjoyed myself immensely during my years working cases in the field. I became disillusioned with it when I saw the number of people who were viewing it as a money-making operation over and above the spiritual and genuinely emotional and often tragic nature of haunts.

The same feelings and observations apply to aspects of mediums operating out there in the world today and who attract a huge following and who are mostly in it for the money over and above all else.

Paranormal phenomena, ghosts, spirits and mediumship are areas where keeping a *balance* is important. The Other Side is very real and keeping your perspective about living your LIFE on this side is what is important while acknowledging that those on the other side *occasionally* can make their thoughts known to benefit us and help us as we stumble through life. It is perfectly Ok to make your living in these fields as long as you maintain the balance and to not lose perspective.

What Ryan is accused of is something that is all too common in the field and it gives genuine and ethical Paranormal investigators and Mediums the world over a black eye.

I still do an occasional investigation and have kept up with mediumship which is important to me, but I have learned that to turn a legitimately God-Given gift into something it was never meant to be is truly tragic. There are ethical mediums I have run into out there who are absolutely the real deal and then others who are... without a doubt... fakes. The same applies to paranormal investigation teams. The truly ethical ones are often the least attention seeking and who really live their craft for the thrill of working with the unseen and unknown. I've been working on getting back into my groove with my own gifts and always endeavor to keep both feet on the ground and remember who it all comes from - The Big Guy upstairs...

I sincerely hope Ryan finds his way back to even ground and hope the entire Paranormal and Mediumship fields takes notice and begin to self-regulate and hold high ethical standards in the forefront or we will lose the good will and progress granted so kindly by the public over this past 12 years or so since the field really took off.
