Stephen Smith


A scientist and student of sociology/psychology first, Stephen prefers seeking out logical explanations for situations rather than jumping to conclusions. His goal in this is to help others understand the world around them and, the nature of the gifts they hold inside.

Stephen is an Energy Alchemist and intuitive healer. Having been born blind, He has gained a higher empathic sense as well as an ability to see the emotional and energetic responses of others or, their "auras". In his mid teens he was trained by the Draconic Alchemic Circle in energy manipulation, aura cleansing and. removal of negative influences. This includes: dispelling curses, bindings, psychic blocks and removal of harmful attachments.

Stephen’s studies have led him to understand many faiths and practices and he is well versed in several forms of exorcism. In recent years, he has accepted a role as teacher and have received the title of Senior Master in his Order.

Brian Gibson


Being a minister, Brian has been able to help people in finding a spiritual direction as an intuitive counselor. His goal is to be kind, caring, and compassionate to someone's individual situation, but sometime being a little bit more firm to help a person realize the reality of their situation. Brian has the understanding of the "I Am," programming that people have to help them achieve their goals and live a more fulfilled life.

Brian is also a physical healer, being a medical intuitive, he uses the information he receives, along with the alchemy, to stimulate the body's own healing.

Ethan Conn


As a member of Spirit Mechanix, Ethan offers guided meditations, crystal healing and primarily energetic healing on the emotional side of the spirit. This is not to say that he cannot do the other aspects, it is just what he specializes in.

Ethan started energy work when he was young, probably around the age of 14. At that time, he was interested in and trying to find out more about the concept of energetic healing. Ethan did not really start practicing until about two years later. When he started working with crystals and seeing how they help others, he began to realize the importance of it and that he, in fact, had the ability to do so.

All in all, Ethan’s overall goal for himself and everyone in Spirit Mechanix is to help others.

Dustin Miles

Senior Mechanic

Dustin's path into metaphysics began when he was 15. He began frequenting a local witchcraft and metaphysical shop with his uncle. His curiosity led him to begin studying books he found there and his path only progressed as he grew older, learning about his gifts and talents.

They met Steve at the shop and after spending time getting to know one another, they decided to start working together, and he's been doing the thing since then.

As far as gifts go, Dustin is a sensitive to the metaphysical, like most in the group. He also enjoys using runes and sigils in his work and is very in tune with healing energies and cleansings (house, personal, etc).

Keith Ottersberg


I've experienced paranormal activity since I was six years old. The first encounter I had traumatized me to the point I was afraid to be alone which is where my personal issues with the paranormal began. Throughout my life the paranormal activity surrounding me has had a negative impact on several of my relationships. As I got older, the activity began to intensify, and I needed to find answers: the why's, the how's, etc. Because of my need for answers, I had our homes investigated multiple times by different paranormal teams. During that time, others who were having paranormal issues began to contact me for help.

I arranged several investigations for one of those teams, and in exchange was allowed to investigate with them and learn. That particular team split into two. I was asked to join one of those teams. One thing led to another and eventually, I decided to form my own team. Cobra Paranormal was born.

During all this, I had been contacting The Dead Files to come and help. The teams that had come always got evidence but could never stop the activity or say exactly what the issue was. Finally, I got a yes from The Dead Files and Steve and Amy came. Amy sent a group of very caring and wonderful people. They were called the Spirit Mechanix. I received help from some very special people including my own paranormal team and we were able to end the oppression of paranormal activity in my own life. It is because of this that I feel compelled to help others do the same. It was also through this process that I discovered abilities which I never understood before and some I didn’t know I had. I'm now drawn to help others understand their experiences and learn how to handle them before problems are escalated, and relationships and families are divided. The Spirit Mechanix took me and my team under their wing and we are now the Nebraska chapter for them. We continue to learn from them. I’ve recently began learning Reiki and am certified as level one. I’ll continue learning this among other things to be able to help others heal and end their paranormal oppression.
