As soon as I walked in this prison, the air got heavy and I knew there were spirits here that were comfortable with my presence. I was able to communicate with a friendly spirit that was comfortable with my friends and I. We had a full conversation with yes or no questions and tapping for about an half hour. It was an amazing experience and I will never forget it. I felt welcomed by these spirits and I can't wait to go back and talk some more!Posted 10/28/20
