Re­search group hunts for an­swers

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

AF­TER hav­ing his own para­nor­mal ex­pe­ri­ence when he was 16, Craig Pow­ell, of St Clair, formed Western Sydney Para­nor­mal Re­search to find an­swers.

Mr Pow­ell said he saw the ghost of a woman while babysit­ting for his sis­ter.

“I saw a woman in the house that night and it wasn’t like a Hol­ly­wood seethrough ghost – it was just like see­ing a real per­son – but I couldn't find her any­where,” he said.

“Since then, it has just been about what I saw, how I saw it and how do I prove that what I saw was real.”

The para­nor­mal en­coun­ters con­tin­ued for Mr Pow­ell and wife Nicky My­ers af­ter a hor­rific car ac­ci­dent.

“We were in­volved in a re­ally bad ac­ci­dent and Nicky nearly died and went through a near-death ex­pe­ri­ence,” Mr Pow­ell said.

“Then things started hap­pen­ing in our house to my par­ents. They are the big­gest scep­tics (but) they had to leave our house; they couldn’t stay there.

“We kept won­der­ing who do we call for help and that’s when we de­cided we would form this or­gan­i­sa­tion.”

Mr Pow­ell said the aim of the group was about an­swer­ing peo­ple’s ques­tions.

“We can val­i­date or de­bunk the ex­pe­ri­ence peo­ple are hav­ing and give them nor­mal ra­tio­nal ex­pla­na­tions for what is go­ing on – and 90 per cent cent of the time we can do that,” he said.

“We love do­ing it and the things that we have seen and heard and the places we have been to have been amaz­ing.”
