I got Bobbie’s message today.
Do you know Bobbie?
She’s the creator of one of the oldest Bigfoot websites on the internet, Bigfoot Encounters.
She’s been collecting Bigfoot information there for years!
Bobbie Short’s Bigfoot Newsletter Online just published its 262nd monthly issue today, so you know she’s been working on collecting the news for a long time!
This time she opened with a word about occult practices, something she normally doesn’t do.
“The Sasquatch and occult practices…
Google’s definition of the term “Occult:” (noun) Supernatural, mystical, or magical beliefs, practices, or such phenomena and as an adjective, occult means: Of, involving or relating to supernatural, mystical or magical powers or w/phenomena such as BF. For those who don’t know me, the editor of this newsletter is a staunch flesh & blood conventionalist. I do not advocate any connection between the Sasquatch people and any occult/paranormal discipline or viewpoint because it sets this research off course and spreads misinformation.”
– Bobbie Short of Bigfoot Encounters, Bigfoot Newsletter Online #262, June 1, 2012
I don’t know if this was a response to my recent decision to announce my feelings about telepathy, or if it is a response to a trend among many Bigfoot researchers.
I do respect Bobbie’s decision to remind us of her conventionalism.
But I find it sad.
I’m not sad that Bobbie isn’t into psychic phenomena.
I understand that 90% of the Bigfoot researchers are so concerned about respect for the Bigfoot research field that they focus only on physical evidence and sighting reports.
What I find sad is that something as important as telepathy is swept under the rug as if it weren’t important at all!
Here in America we are brainwashed from birth to believe that ESP is unreliable, unimportant, and probably unreal.
Just as there are many Bigfoot experiencers telling us that Bigfoot people live in our forest, there are many psychics telling us that mental telepathy is a real phenomenon.
Who are you going to believe?
Most people choose to believe their own experiences.
I’ll bet there are a lot more people with psychic experiences than there are people with Bigfoot sighting experiences!
For those of you who are Bigfoot researchers who haven’t had psychic experiences, you probably think I’ve gone on the woo-woo bandwagon. I wonder if any of you are even still reading this blog! Leave a comment to let me know if you got this far!
I’m not crying over a loss of readership here.
I know there are many people with psychic experience that also are interested in learning more about Bigfoot, and it is for them that I’m writing now.
As a long-time blogger I need to differentiate my blog. There are dozens of Bigfoot blogs on the internet.
FYI. When I started this blog in April 2005 it was the second Bigfoot blog on the web, closely following Daniel Perez’ blog startup in November 2004.
I think Craig Woolheater bought the Cryptomundo domain before I bought mine but his blog wasn’t started until after mine.
If I’ve got my facts wrong please tell me in comments.
At the time I didn’t know anything about Daniel Perez and his Bigfoot Times website. I thought I might be the first, but I wasn’t.
You see, I was not very savvy about Bigfoot research at all in 2005.
I was a beginner.
I started the blog because there had been Bigfoot sightings near my town and I wanted to write about them and learn more.
And because I’m a writer and blogger. It is what I do.
My blog has been very generalized over the years, and over the years, many others have taken up the hobby of blogging about Bigfoot.
When my blog started, it was a noticeable frog in a small pond.
These days there are LOTS of Bigfoot bloggers.
It is hard to distinguish oneself among them, so I need a specialty.
I am not the greatest Bigfoot forest investigator ever, even though I live in the center of a forest known for Bigfoot sightings. I’m a 59-year-old woman and essentially, I’m a writer and blogger, not a tracker or outdoorsman.
I am not the greatest scientist ever. Definitely not a scientist though I do have an analytical mind at times. Most of the time.
I am not the greatest cook. But that’s another matter!
So … WHAT AM I?
I got real honest with myself and realized that what I am is a psychic writer who has a huge interest in Bigfoot.
That’s a bad word in the Bigfoot research community.
But how many psychics have been shooed out of the Bigfoot research community by loud guys that laugh at them?
Okay, I’m joining that crowd.
I write and I’ll blog about it.
What do you want to bet that ten years from now psychic Bigfoot research will be commonplace and there will be so many blogs about it that I’ll have to differentiate my blog even further?
It is the best way to stay informed about new articles.
Also, leave a comment and let us know how you feel about the direction this blog is taking.
Are you a strict conventionalist who believes there’s no room for psychic phenomena in the field of Bigfoot research?
Or are you open minded enough to believe a good psychic could help lead you to the evidence you’ve been looking for?
