When passing through NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art's vast collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities and yes past the mummies -- do you get an unearthly feeling that something or someone is looking back? Well you just might be right says two seasoned New York ghost hunters.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/26/2014 -- The Book of the Dead combined with a host of magical rituals, amulets and protocols enabled the ancient Egyptians to cheat death and rise again in the afterlife. And maybe some ancient Egyptian ghosts have made that journey and returned...well at least to NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art according to Pete and Stew Kandel (know as Dr. Pete and Dr. Stew) paranormal investigators and licensed NYC tour guides aka the “Ghost Doctors.”
The Ghost Doctors who lead groups of adventurous amateur ghost hunters through a variety of NYC's iconic landmarks including the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art -- have been searching the hallways and galleries of this famous New York institution for signs of paranormal activity and have found the Egyptian wings to be buzzing with activity.
“The ancient Egyptians held the afterlife in great reverence and much of their culture was devoted to the belief that death is only the beginning,” says Dr. Stew. “With this in mind, if you're conducting a paranormal investigation of the Met, the Egyptian wings are definitely a must.”
Recently on a ghostly hunt at the Met, the two ghost hunters picked up some strange unusual activity. With a battery of electronic ghost hunting equipment in hand accompanied by a group of anxious but excited ghost hunters in training, they detected something.
“We were passing through one of the smaller galleries on the way to the “Temple of Dendur” when one of our instruments just went off,” says Dr. Pete. “In fact one particular participant in our group was the first to uncover this activity which was further collaborated by others as well.”
The Ghost Doctors say each and every ghost hunt is unique as they never know what will turn up during an investigation.
“We constantly get photos emailed to us from people who have gone on our ghost hunting adventures,” says Dr. Stew. “People get excited and rightfully so, when they download the pics from a recent ghost hunt and see something strange.”
So the next time you're walking through the Met and happen to come across some 3000 year old mummies, no need to go looking for Dr. Indiana Jones, New York has its own Doctors -- The Ghost Doctors.
