Robert James Lees (born 12 August 1849 in Hinckley, Leicestershire – died 11 January 1931 in Leicester) was a British spiritualist, medium, preacher, writer and healer of the late Victorian era and early twentieth century known today for claims that he knew the identity of Jack the Ripper, responsible for the Whitechapel murders of 1888.


At the time of the Jack the Ripper murders in 1888, Lees was living in the London area. His diary entries for 1888 reveal that on 2 October, during a month when no Ripper murders took place, Lees went to both the City of London Police and Scotland Yard offering his assistance in catching Jack the Ripper. However, he was turned away as a madman on both occasions, though Scotland Yard offered to write to him.

One story, frequently quoted in books and films on the subject, is that Lees, using his psychic power, led the police to Jack the Ripper.


This story first appeared in print on 28 April 1895, in The Chicago Herald. Another version of the same story was also published in The People on 19 May 1895.

The Chicago Herald article claimed that, over a number of years, Lees had been troubled by psychic visions of Jack the Ripper killing his victims. Each of these visions came true. Lees became disturbed by the visions and sought medical advice, going abroad as a result, where he no longer had the visions. Back in London, he and his wife Sarah were travelling on an omnibus

when a man got on at Notting Hill. Lees turned and told his wife that the man was Jack the Ripper. Even though his wife laughed at him, when the man got off the bus at Marble Arch, Lees followed him. Finding a police constable on the way, Lees told him of his suspicions, but the constable also laughed at him. After more murders, Lees was able to convince the police of the truth of his visions and led them to a fashionable house in London, which was home to a noted physician who had treated members of the Royal Family.On being found in incriminating circumstances, the doctor was put in a lunatic asylum under the name of Thomas Mason 124, and a mock funeral held. According to the Chicago Herald, the tale had been related by a Dr. Howard of London, who, when drunk, had told the story to a man who then told the newspaper.





Ripperologists disregard the story as a hoax. Obvious errors in the Chicago Herald story include the claim there had been 17 murders that took place over a number of years, but the actual number of Ripper victims was just five, with the actual murders occurring in just a few months in the Autumn of 1888.Melvin Harris in his book Jack the Ripper, The Bloody Truth provides convincing evidence that the story was a hoax. He believes that the hoaxers were the Whitechapel Club, Chicago.

The offices of the club at that time were behind those of the Chicago Herald.According to Harris, the police had "denied that Lees was involved with the Ripper hunt. In fact, Robert Lees's own diary entries contradict this part of the tale. They show that he didn't approach the police until October 2, 1888 three days after the murders on the twenty-ninth."

In 1976, the Lees/Ripper story came into prominence again with the publication of Stephen Knight's b ook Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution. Ian Sharp had rediscovered the Chicago Herald article while researching Jack the Ripper for a BBC documentary that had been screened


before the publication of Knight's book. The publication of The Final Solution saw the first time that the Chicago Herald article officially had been quoted in a major publication since The People had quoted it in 1895

With the rise over the past few years of technology in the field of paranormal research , have you found you are slowly over time not using your innate abilities of psychic awareness , are they becoming dormant as you let the technology take over .

We are seeing in all areas of life the rise of technology the synthetic transition of Artificial intelligence which will over time render the organic human to become denser.

Your physical body is so much more than you may realize , you are consciousness , an energetic field , and understanding this opens you to deeper realms of possibilities on investigations , this information isn't new but by relying solely on the technology , you aren't giving enough credit to how receptive you actually are , and potentially you are missing out on breathtaking experiences and sensory depriving yourself.

You are an earthen vessel , which is vitally important to understand you are also a spiritual multidimensional biological being so that being said you can form resonance with like energy so with the earth , with everything of the earth which means spirit.

So many get into the mindset that spirit beings are so separate to us , that couldn't be further from the truth , remember you are spirit .

Apply this mindset whilst out in the field at Historical locations in abandoned spaces , in everyday life , it will serve you well and you will experience more personal communication , as you understand who you are .

So instead of instantly going in for a itc session with no foundation work , do the foundation work go back to base , build the vibration don't just stand around your equipment waiting for it to pick up a reception and broadcast to you , alongside your technology you too broadcast in intent to receive ,build the energy , work with the energy around you .

All communication is an energetic exchange .

If you set all your equipment up prior , get it up and running and just let it do its thing of recording , have the itc apps running in the background if that’s your thing , but the magic happens when you begin to sensitize to your space , you build and work with the energy in your environment . You have to feel your space , all spaces , locations , land will have many layers to them and although many layers will be in the distant past the layers are multidimensional , just as you are , you have to build a connection , you build emotional resonance , you work with the earth , work with the nature elements , everything in your environment is energy , everything from the rocks to the breeze, you concentrate not on your equipment , but focus on communication increasing its momentum with energy in motion.

So you open yourself up , ground and centre and have the intent to receive , with your heart open in gratitude and love , a high consciousness always includes the earth , with practice You can Start to feel at cellular level and the land will talk to you , when you become one with the land you become one with the history and you start to open yourself up to the wisdom , wisdom is information and you enter other realms via the vision and feelings of clairaudience , clairsentience, claircognizance and so on and as the third eye receives combined with vision of the physical , two worlds cross , they merge and in those moments they seem as one , and the history of that space becomes alive , you ask the land if it will connect with you , you ask the keepers of the land , the energy of the land to connect with you , you do this to build a connection you build the energy , with passion and purpose , the land the spirits the ancestors will be aware of the surge of energy which they can draw from and greet you , you will start to pick up intuitively , more questions will then flow , but questions based on what is being received , rather than just suggestion from your apps , you will also be surprised what is recorded , if you have an itc app running as it scans through the channels through the banks , even whilst sensitized to your environment you will hear responses right in the moment , you can go live with this , your viewers will experience this too , they can take screen shots as the energy builds and even via the method of remote viewing tune into the space and write down what they are feeling , receiving .

We will aim to invite you to join us on a live when future timelines allow.

If you are fortunate to have field testing equipment that measures variables in the atmosphere, then you can record these changes which complies a stronger hypothesis for further investigation . We combine the study of past events via the intuitive experience as well as in physical study forming a case file we can cross reference . In these times of the rise of technology and the ever increasing speed in transhumanism , it is important to work with consciousness at organic level , which will lead to the evolution and expansion of human consciousness , you are very capable of having an experience organically via consciousness transfer , future timelines will see the merge with machines , where your experiences will be computer generated simulation and the use of electronic equipment such has an helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors , and whilst there is a place for technology In the future that enhances , we need to push forward that we need to evolve spiritually before we evolve in technically.

As ghost hunters we get approached by many people who have unexplained things going on either at their workplace or home - here below is an account from someone that used to work in a popular pub & hotel in Maidstone Kent - The White Rabbit.

The location itself is very interesting indeed


The Grade II listed building on Sandling Road has had a colourful history, serving as the officers' mess for Invicta Barracks, built in 1779 as a reaction to the threat of Napoleon


Here's her account of her time there :




In 2003 I was working in the White Rabbit as a room attendant in the upstairs rooms. There are 12 rooms for the public, rooms 1-9 on the first floor, rooms 10-12 on the second but room no 13 also on the second floor was always used by the assistant manager as a ‘live in’ room. We would all often talk of the strange things going on upstairs, when we used to be on the top floor we would always hear footsteps on the stairs, and various other noises, there was never anyone up there only myself and Jane who I worked with. Sometimes we’d stick our head out the door of whatever room to see if anyone was around but there never was, the ‘please service my room’ signs would always be swinging from the door handles though. The assistant manager would always say that he would go to bed in room 13 with the door shut and light off but when he woke in the morning, the light would be on and the door open, we always thought he was messing about with us. When he left, Jane and I were asked to give his room a good clean. Once we had done most of it I suggested to Jane that she go to make a start on rooms 10-12 while I hoover room 13, so off she went. I can remember to this day, once I had finished I stopped at the door and took a quick look around to make sure the room was as it should be, I hesitated, did I lock the door or not at I left? Nothing in there really but if I lock it and we need to get it again we have the master key, so to be on the safe side, I dropped the catch locking the door and left to find Jane. We were together the whole time we were cleaning the rooms. Room 12 was further down the corridor and once we had finished we had to pass Room 13 to get back to the laundry room, Jane stopped and asked me “Did you lock the door?” I nodded and replied “Yes I did” Jane took the handle to check, she promptly twisted the handle and walked straight into the room, not only that, but the light was on, we hadn’t even had the light on!!! I’m a believer, always have been but that was too much for me? We had to go for a break because I was so shocked by it. I’ve never had a real experience like that, one that I couldn’t justify. We went and had a tea break, but I refused to go up on that second floor on my own ever again. When I first started there I was told that many people have experienced various things there. Jane’s daughter had seen a little girl in a room in that should have been empty, she checked with Jane, they went back but the girl was gone. I was told that the ghosts there are friendly and have never harmed anyone. The building was the original officers mess for the army, so we guessed that many went to war and never came back, well, maybe they did. Scared the wits out of me I know that!


Anyone fancy a sleep over in room 13 ??
