The Famous Case of Emilie Sagée and her Doppelgänger

Before teaching at the Pensionat von Neuwelcke School for girls in France (pictured above), Emilie Sagee had taught at eighteen different schools. Eighteen schools from which she had been fired because of the phenomena that accompanied her. This 32-year old school teacher and her ability of bilocation has become one of the most witnessed and documented cases of a Doppelgänger in recorded history.

As Sagée was writing on the chalkboard while teaching her class, her double appeared, standing along side her mimicking her motions. It was her exact image except that it wasn’t holding a piece of chalk.

On another occasion, all of the school’s 42 girls were in the school hall for sewing and embroidery class. As they worked, they could clearly see Sagée in the school’s garden gathering flowers. However, when the girl’s teacher left the room for a moment, Sagée’s Doppelgänger appeared, sitting motionless in the teacher’s chair. Two girls tried to touch the apparition but were met with an odd resistance and were unable to penetrate the air surrounding the entity. Yet, one girl, stepping between the teacher’s chair and the table, passed through the apparition, which then slowly vanished.

Sagée was absolutely unconscious of what was happening and she only knew about the phenomenon because of the expression on the faces of the people who were there. It was by seeing their frightened faces, their eyes staring at something invisible which seemed to be moving near her, that she understood.  But she had never, herself, seen her double; neither had she noticed the stiffness and slowing down of her movements when her double appeared.

Fascinating!

BTS shots of the amazing athletes I got to work with recently. Look out for their “FACES” PSA spots airing soon on the Big Ten Network. These athletes hailed from Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.

This was a fun commercial shoot at my university.  It was shot in three segments, then they were edited together to make one.  We worked with current UE students.  Shot by Fire and Rain of Evansville, IN

I had such fun making blood effects for this film!  That’s my team’s (Al-Boogie and Emilia) handy work in the poster!  I can’t wait for this to come out.  I believe it’s available in Europe only.  Keep any eye out!

Put a Little Love in your Heart.

As a child, Easter meant shiny new shoes, a fancy dress some candy and also Sunrise Church service. The small town of 900 I grew up in had…wait for it…11 churches. Needless to day, there were many differing opinions on religion. Every year, one of the churches would volunteer or be chosen (not sure about the politics) to host the Sunrise Easter service and a minister would be chosen to speak, who would usually not be the home minister of the hosting church. The turnout was always high. Awwww…what a great way to share faith and fellowship on Easter, right?

One year when I was maybe 10, there was much talk surrounding my home church’s hosting of the event. We had decided to invite the minister from the African American Baptist church to speak. Yes, you heard that right. My town had separate churches, I dare say never had the two mixed.

Easter Sunday came, and my dear, dear mother woke me In the cold dark and I crankily got ready. When we arrived at the church, the small streets were strangely bare. The chapel was sparsely seated, and stayed that way throughout the service.

As I took in the minister’s message and sang along with the lovely and traditional songs, I couldn’t understand how a person could choose to not participate in such a wonderful service solely based on the color of the minister’s skin. This was the obvious reason, based on the past services I had attended.

The minister set for his church to host the service the following Easter. I cannot recall who spoke, but I think it was the church’s own minister. My mom an I were two of the very few outsiders that day, and we were welcomed with warmth and love. The service was exciting and authentic and like nothing I had seen before.

I prayed for the members of my home church to open their hearts to love. I couldn’t be angry with them because they were only living what that had learned. Thank you, mom, for showing me a lesson worth learning.

However you choose or don’t choose to celebrate this day, do it with love in your heart.
