Sailors on the Great Lakes say their waters are as dangerous as any ocean. Whitefish Point Light House looks out over Lake Superior in an area known as “the graveyard of the Great Lakes”. It is said that more than 300 ships have been victim to Superior’s storms, including the famous Edmund Fitzgerald.
Whitefish Point has many unique features that pique a wide range of interests for all kinds of people; divers, history buffs, ghost hunters, lighthouse
aficionados and bird watchers, to name just a few.
A wealth of history can be found in the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum
, where artifacts from the Great Lakes are on display. Many of these artifacts were retrieved by the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society (GLSHS).
Wandering in the museum, one can see historic diving gear, anchors and artifacts brought up from shipwrecks, see the original bell from the Edmund Fitzgerald, and even touch the wooden hull of an ill-fated ship.
Being able to get psychic impressions from touching objects is called psychometry
. The belief is that all objects contain energy, and that they can absorb energy from their surroundings, especially from traumatic events.
Because there are a few exhibits that guests are allowed to touch at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, it’s a fascinating place to try your psychometry skills. Gently touch one of the many shipwreck artifacts and close your eyes. Let images and feelings come to your mind and don’t try to process them yet.
is a psychic in Detroit, Mi who says that “wood and metal are good conductors of psychic energy. But I prefer to use objects that have some of the DNA from past owners, like a hairbrush or something the person would have touched.”
Kristy feels that everyone is sensitive on some level, so even if you don’t think you have any psychic abilities, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum is a great place to try your hand at psychometry.
