In the 10 years that I've been doing paranormal investigations I've had plenty of strange experiences. Chills here, hair standing up on the back of my neck there, but this past weekend I had one of the oddest yet.

Let me give you a little background on my personal ghost hunting outlook first, though.

I come from a place of being an open minded skeptic. I'll never accuse someone of being nuts, making things up, or being gullible, but I have to experience something for myself before really considering myself a believer.

That being said, again, I've had plenty of weird experiences over the years but I still feel like I haven't had an experience that would make me an all-in believer.

But this past weekend it came close.

I was checking out the new location for Asbury Park's Paranormal Books & Curiosities which, just based on the weird artifacts in the building itself, should be a hotbed of unsettled spirits.

It was a small group of us, just 5 people, including a colleague who had never been on a ghost hunt before but was eager to experience one for himself (more on that in the coming days).

Myself and my colleague were sitting at a table while the others were in a different part of the building. We were sitting and chatting about some of the audio I recorded when a cable literally moved from the middle of the table and fell to the floor.

It wasn't hanging off the table. There wasn't a breeze. Nobody else was in the room aside from the two of us. I have no good explanation for how it went from sitting in the middle of the table to the floor.

We both saw it happen and were dumbfounded by it. Thankfully, I was recording audio when it happened. What resulted is one of the more entertaining clips that I've ever recorded. You can hear the cable drop to the floor as I stop mid-sentence and we both are trying to figure out what the heck just happened.

Here, take a listen:

It was definitely one of the strangest experiences that I've had yet. And the funny part is the fact that it was such a small thing but was totally without any logical explanation.

It doesn't necessarily take a full bodied apparition or dishes being smashed to give you a paranormal experience. Sometimes all it takes is for a small cable to move by some unseen force.

There's a lot more to the story of last weekend's investigation, stay tuned for the whole story!
