ITC experiments using
Light Reflected from Water
As Margaret Downey explains her
experimental set-up, "I have a Canon Power Shot A75 Digital camera. It
allows me to do thirty seconds of video at a time. I leave it on the highest
resolution (640 x 480 pixels). For effects, I use the function button to set
the camera to shoot in sepia (a brownish tone), tungsten (which makes it blue),
and black and white. I also do a session using just normal settings.
"The experiments are done on my stove and the setup is very
basic. The light in the stove hood is used as the light source. Then depending
on my whim, I will use a black pot filled about half way with water or a
translucent, amber colored Vision Corning Ware pot half filled with water which
I set either directly on the stove top or I suspend in the empty black pot.
(Editor: Margaret has joked that her Vision Corning Ware pot really should be
called Vision ware!)
"I hold the video camera in my right hand and wiggle my left
fingers in the water while I record the ripples. I get better results if I use
my fingers rather than using a spoon or other object to stir the water. I first
look through the viewfinder screen, to make sure I’m holding the camera at an
angle where it catches the light reflection in the water. This position is not
quite directly over it, but from above and at a slight angle. At the same time,
I respectfully request for any people or animals in spirit who would like to
show themselves, to please do so.
"Once in a while, I’ll place a crystal or a crystal ball in
the water. And sometimes I ask my hubby to shine red and blue lights in the
"After filming, I remove the compact memory card from the
camera and place it into my computer. The file is transferred into a software
program on my Mac called iMovie, which allows me to look at the video one frame
at a time. When I see something in a frame, I’m able to save that single frame
as a jpg file. And from that jpg, I crop out the image(s) I wish to keep. I
keep both the unedited full frame along with my edited/cropped version. Once in
a while, I keep the entire video, but most of the time I dump it in order to
help save hard drive space."
In one experiment, Margaret asked
for her grandparents and received this ITC picture of a bearded man she feels is
her Great Great Grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Main Sr. He was a physician and
Baptist minister who crossed in 1913. Today, he and his grandson, Lewis
(Margaret’s grandfather who crossed in 1993), help her in making connections to
Steve is a friend of Margaret’s friend, Linda, who likes to
"pop in" to Margaret’s EVP sessions to call Linda’s name. Linda had
asked her to call on him and this is the image that showed up. Linda said that
there is enough of a resemblance that she feels he was doing what he could to
show himself to her.
Margaret also has captured a picture of a face that she feels is
her Indian guide, Walking Sun, who she had asked to come through during an
experiment. Margaret had a reading from a Shaman
who told her, "Margaret’s
heart hears the drum beat of Mother Earth and her spirit finds the stairway to
Father Sky." She told Margaret that if she asked for her guide, Walking
Sun, he would come. Margaret says, "One of the Shaman’s comments in my
reading was that people with "dove medicine" can see between the
worlds and the veil between earth and the spirit world is thin for them. She
talked about being clairaudient and hearing spirit/sensing vibrations. It was
so fun to be able to tell her after the reading about EVP/ITC!"
Margaret feels that she has gotten some excellent readings from
people on the Internet and through eBay. If you are interested in more
