TREASURE HUNTING AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY
DO CURSES AND PARANORMAL EVENTS PROTECT LOST TREASURES?
Documented by Timothy Draper
If you venture out in the wilderness looking for lost treasure and buried loot, there are some things you should be aware of first. For starters, if you are afraid of ghosts, goblins, and paranormal activity, treasure hunting and historical research in the field might not be for you.
TREASURE HUNTERS BEWARE OF STRANGE PHENOMENON
TREASURE HUNTING AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY CHAPTER 1
I am asked all the time about curses, and I always answer with, I don’t know if I believe in curses for sure, but there’s something out there connected with the treasures I’ve hunted. I know enough to not mess around with it, I’ll tell you that. You have to remember that in order to have light, there has to be darkness. To understand good, you have to know bad. Stories of curses have always been connected to treasure stories, but why?
PARANORMAL STORY OF LOST TREASURES AND GHOST
TREASURE HUNTING AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY CHAPTER 2
I’ve had many weird things happen to me in my life, but this story still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
In 2013 at 11:30 at night, I received a phone call from my friend Brandon. He mentioned that his truck was stuck in a river. He needed my help and he mentioned that his exhaust was under the water, and he was low in gas, so I grabbed my wife Lee Ann, and my son Trea, and we headed on the road to find Brandon. He was about a 15 minute drive from my house and another 15 minutes of off-roading to reach him.
This is a normal thing for us explorers. Sometimes you go out and can’t make it back because of a problem with your 4×4. We tried to reach him as soon as we could, and he was right, he was stuck badly. I used my Jeep to pull him out of the river and it took a few tries to get him out. Once I did get his truck to safety, I reminded him that these roads are rough and that he needed a four-wheel drive to explore. He smiled and said, I know that now!
We checked his truck over to make sure that everything was okay for him to drive home before heading down the road. As we were making our way out of the area, we came up to a graveyard from an old mining camp in the 1800s. We pulled over to check it out and that’s when things got really weird. There was an old rock wall about 6 feet tall surrounding the site and there was an iron double gate, unlocked. I pushed the doors open, and that was when we heard it. It was one of the eeriest sounds I’ve ever heard in my life. It sounded like a female voice, something from a horror movie.
The other interesting thing is that only the males heard the scream, not the females in our group. We continued on with our flashlights and explored the cemetery. Many of the death dates stamped on the tombstones were from the 1860s to 1890s. I can’t remember who it was, but one of our group members accidentally bumped into a rock wall that was designed to be a part of someone’s grave. I hurried over to place the fallen rocks back in the way they were constructed and we decided that it was too dark for this type of exploring. So we left the cemetery and drove home.
We arrived home around 2:30 AM and we headed straight to bed. After about 30 minutes of lying in the dark trying to fall asleep, I saw something that I’ll never forget. I opened my eyes and looked out the window, still laying in bed, and I heard a small commotion outside. As I realized where the noise came from, I saw a very dark shadow pass by our window. It seemed to not have much of its shape and it moved very slowly.
It appeared to move somewhat like a human, but not. The hair on the back of my neck stood up and I felt a very creepy feeling. I didn’t know then what I knew now, but this was the beginning of paranormal activity in our house for almost a year.
NOT SO FRIENDLY SPIRIT | GHOST – SCARY ACTIVITY BEGINS
TREASURE HUNTING AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY CHAPTER 3
One morning, my brother Scott was sleeping in our den and I woke up to him saying “What the hell” in a loud voice. Then he said “Tim! Come here!”
I could tell from the tone of his voice that something was wrong, so I jumped out of bed and walked down the hallway to the den. To my surprise, I was looking at all our entryway furniture, stacked in front of the double doors to the den. My brother couldn’t get out of the double doors because the entryway table was leaning against it, the artificial plants were on top of the table, and shoes, clothes, and pictures from the wall were all stacked and blocking entry to the den.
I stood there confused for what seemed like a couple of minutes. As I was moving the objects away from the door, my brother was asking me if I did it. I was asking him how he did it, and that led to us asking everyone who had stacked the furniture, as I was clearing the way.
The whole family was in awe as we were trying to figure out who did this. No one fessed up to it and everyone seemed almost too creeped out and scared to talk about it. The conversation went on for about an hour. Confusion and finger pointing was the main topic of the conversation. After that, the house was fairly quiet for the rest of the day.
STRANGE ACTIVITY INCREASES – IS IT CONNECTED TO ARTIFACTS OR THE CEMETERY?
TREASURE HUNTING AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY CHAPTER 4
Waking up in the mornings with furniture and objects displaced, happened often for several months. It wouldn’t happen every night, but it did happen a couple of times a week. The feeling of being scared started to slip away, and it became more a part of normal life. It even started to become a nuisance to hang pictures back on the walls and place the furniture back where it came from.
By this time we’ve reached out to people, and started researching paranormal activity similar to ours. Many people had their own thoughts and ideas of why it was happening to our home and family. Before things got better, things sometimes got worse.
One night I woke up in a panic because I heard a very loud noise that sounded like someone broke our slider glass door and started throwing and moving things in the house. I jumped out of bed very quickly and grabbed my handgun and ran into the main part of the house. To my surprise, the door wasn’t broken, nothing was moved, and everything was normal. The house was in the same state as it was when we went to bed.
Family members started coming out of their rooms and they looked at me all confused that I was in the living room with a weird look on my face, in my underwear, and a gun in my hand. No one had heard what I heard.
Several similar stories came and went in the house and it was always at night. If I ever woke up because of strange activities, it seemed to be between 2:00 AM – 3:30 AM.
About a week later, the whole house woke up to a very loud noise. I heard my brother yell out of fright and we all ran to the living room once again. The shoe racks and about 10 pairs of shoes were all over the floor of the entryway. My brother came out of the den telling me that he was sleeping and was woken up by his door slamming open and shoes flying in the air.
Some of the shoes were thrown so hard that they left shoe scuffs on the walls and doors. The shoe racks were broken as well. Someone or something threw these racks of shoes all at the same time, towards the doors and walls, very hard.
Why? What is going on and what is this connected to, asked. We knew that it was connected to something that was bad. But was it due to the night at the cemetery, or was it linked to some artifacts I brought home from one of my treasure hunts a couple of weeks prior to the cemetery experience?
THE STRANGE PARANORMAL HAS TO STOP – WHAT IS GOING ON?
TREASURE HUNTING AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY CHAPTER 5
After some help from many, we decided that it was definitely the cemetery or the treasure artifacts I had brought home. The activity slowly went away after 8 months but we had had enough. We had church officials come into the home and bless not only the house but our family. I removed the artifacts from my home and things started to die down. We were sleeping better at night and things started to go back to normal but we needed a new start. We decided to move a few streets away into a new home and things have been good for several years now. No strange activity has come about for more than 4 years. I don’t have artifacts in our home today but every once in a while, we notice strange and unexplained things in our new home when new treasure research and exploration comes into our lives.
I have talked with many other researchers and treasure hunters about this, and to my surprise, about 80% of them seem to have similar stories as well, linked to either possible haunted treasure sites and/or artifacts that have bad energy connected to them.
Is it the artifacts that come from treasure sites or are it the sites and locations that we visit that bring paranormal activity around? I think it’s all of the above.
If you read some of my other blogs about huge discoveries and explorations, I am not a stranger to strange phenomena. In fact, it seems that the bigger the story, legend, or treasure I’m seeking, the stranger the activity gets. Our house now has security cameras around and inside the house. For the most part, it is a quite normal home but in the last month, we caught very strange footage of a ghostly spirit in the garage and very creepy sounds.
It is an interesting coincidence that I have been working on some very interesting legends and treasure hunts in the last few months. In fact, I think I’m deeper into big legends and treasure stories than I have ever been in my career of historical treasure hunting. Is it connected? I think so.
I think at this point we just expect paranormal activity to rise once in a while. Not only do I learn of new treasures and history, I learn more about paranormal activity.
Good Luck. Be Safe. Find Your Adventure.
