   Founded in 1994 by Dave Considine, one of only a few lay religious demonologists in North America, Phantasm Psychic Research is an organization dedicated to aiding individuals and families whose lives have been affected by the supernatural and preternatural realms.

   Since its inception, Phantasm PSI has helped many persons who have found themselves in the grip of the beings that inhabit that realm of existence.

   Phantasm PSI investigates and corroborates accounts of supernatural activity, and helps to bring closure to these instances by working with the proper authorities, usually the clergy.

   As you browse our web site, you'll be guided through our collection of spirit photographs; some from graveyards, and some from haunted houses we've investigated.

   We'll also tell of true case accounts, how they began and were resolved, and we'll provide an overview of the criteria investigators use to separate the natural from the supernatural - and how you can avoid ever needing our services!

   Lastly, meet the investigators, and learn how they became involved in the challenging and still evolving field of ghost hunting and religious demonology.

Phantasm's Barbara Considine, front and right, Dave Considine, far right, and John Arel, second from right, listen as a historian tells of her encounter with 'Bennie', who reputedly haunts a Connecticut colonial house, now a museum.

Looking for Clues ...

Why do we do what we do?

   Since the beginning of recorded time man has wondered: exactly what is in store for us on the 'other side'? Cave drawings, dating back thousands of years, have been found that depict the spirit of the deceased moving away - but to where?

   This, as well as many others is a question all investigators hope to eventually find answers for.

   'Investigators' is a broad term into which parapsychologists, paranormal investigators, ghost hunters, and religious demonologists are often collectively lumped into. In actuality, all are not the same, and the labels cannot be used interchangeably to describe each specialist.

   Each category of investigators has different belief systems and approaches to the field, and often find themselves at odds with each other as to the actual cause and nature of the very events they are investigating.

   All seek to resolve the activity but can have vastly differing opinions as to the true nature of the phenomena. Scientists by nature are skeptical and often refuse to accept the findings of ghost hunters and religious demonologists, sometimes in spite of the fact that they themselves cannot explain the occurrences through the methods of modern applied science and physics.

~ Phantasm PSI is very clear in its belief system and investigative techniques ~

~ We seat ourselves in the category of both ghost hunting and religious demonology, the study of how supernatural and preternatural beings can intercede in the lives of humans. In other words we believe there are different types of spirits, not just those of the deceased.

   When we refer to supernatural and preternatural beings, we are referring to those that have never walked the earth in human form: inhuman spirits, better known as demons, devils or fallen angels. And they can, and often do have a devastating effect on people's lives.

   Of course, ghosts and apparitions, the essence of deceased persons do exist, but they fall into a completely different category - yet the two will sometimes overlap. No two hauntings are alike, and each must be handled in the appropriate manner. The differences will be discussed in a later section, devoted to investigative techniques.

   Despite differing opinions all researchers have a common goal: the pursuit of evidence that there is something there.

   We, as ghost hunters and religious demonologists, believe that there is more than just a patch of grass and a marker over our heads when we die. Death is not an end, but a beginning - moving forward into a new and higher dimension, one of enlightenment; and learning the answers to mysteries kept hidden while we inhabited the earth. Proof that as a being, as a soul, we do survive the grave.

   At Phantasm PSI, our priorities differ greatly than those who investigate strictly with scientific interests. Our goal is the spiritual well-being of the family, getting them through these life-altering events and back on the path away from the super and preternatural. We firmly believe that a family's strength and faith in God, combined with our own, can bring an end to most hauntings.

   While the scientific community is often content with endlessly studying the cause of a levitating knickknack, we at Phantasm PSI work to bring a quick and effective end to the often terrifying phenomena a family may be experiencing: ensuring that nothing from another dimension ever touches that item or that family's life again.
